Throughout this page, remember the following: The Supreme Court decision, Marbury verses Madison (1803)......
Marbury v. Madison, arguably the most important case in Supreme Court history, was the first court case to apply the principle of "judicial review" -- the power of federal courts to void acts of Congress in conflict with the Constitution.
In other words, all laws perverse to our U.S. Constitution can become null & void as long as courts do their duty; when members of the court do not uphold the constitution, those so involved are Liars to their oath of office
In fact, every politician, and official who has sworn an oath to uphold the constitution should be removed from office, or at least never reelected if/when they fail to uphold the constitution. *The constitution gives We the People the power to accomplish this; the power is called, a VOTE, whether during an election or during a recall proceeding.
Article 3, section 1: The judges, both of the supreme and inferior courts, shall hold their offices during good behavior...
*Often we hear it said that Supreme Court Judges serve for life....this is not necessarily true. If We the People decide these judges have behaved unfavorably to the constitution, the impeachment process allows the U.S. House of Representatives to draw up "articles of impeachment." When We the People say, get rid of a particular judge, or any other elected official, then each of our representatives, who by the way work for us...not the other way around, are obliged to act according to our wishes. If the House votes to impeach, then the Senate must decide, and so on; this is why it is vitally important we elect people of virtue to represent us in all branches of government.
We the People are the three most powerful words in our representative government!
This page will help you and I use those words, along with the entire U.S. Constitution, to improve our lives as the Founding Fathers intended.
This page is non-partisan, as is our U.S. Constitution, and as long as we obey it, it doesn't matter your political party affiliation, nor your race, color, creed, chosen lifestyle, nor gender.
Many of the problems we have in our country would evaporate if we insist our government obey the U.S. Constitution!
Protesters: Be Productive, Not Destructive
By: Johnny Counterfit ©May 30, 2020
As I write this, destructive riots are occurring in many American cities because citizen, George Floyd allegedly died at the hands of a Minneapolis, MN police officer, during an arrest. A recording of the incident, including a visual of the arresting police officer applying pressure with the knee and shin bone area of his leg, to the neck of Mr. Floyd, was both disturbing, and damaging evidence of police brutality. Pleas from Mr. Floyd that he was unable to breathe, and demands from onlookers for the officer to allow Mr. Floyd relief went unheeded, while fellow officers on the scene made no attempt to help Mr. Floyd.
If protesters used their energies, not to the point of destroying property, but with the insistence all government officials obey their oath of office to uphold the U.S. Constitution, the positive impact would not only achieve the justice they now demand, but it would begin to raise the consciousness of the general public to demand the same from all officials.
Some may say, many of the protesters, and indeed most Americans are unaware the power the constitution gives We the People; let us begin educating our fellow Americans right now, by utilizing the Internet. If you/we can post on social media, this alternate positive direction, think of the possibilities for a better America!
Our U.S. Constitution was created and ratified as the supreme set of laws in our country to restrict government, not We the People!
For example, the 14th Amendment gives all Americans equal protection of the laws, and yet it has been U.S. Supreme Court decisions, during the last four decades, allowing “Qualified Immunity” for government officials; clearly, in my opinion, unconstitutional. ~However, I do believe police, fire, and other "first responders" should be given some sort of protection against lawsuits as a result of lawfully doing their job. By utilizing the U.S. Constitution Amendment process, NOT the courts nor by legislative fiat would "Qualified Immunity" be constitutional.
Cornell Law School cites the following, on its website: Qualified immunity only applies to suits against government officials as individuals, not suits against the government for damages caused by the officials’ actions. Although qualified immunity frequently appears in cases involving police officers, it also applies to most other executive branch officials. While judges, prosecutors, legislators, and some other government officials do not receive qualified immunity, most are protected by other immunity doctrines. Qualified immunity is not immunity from having to pay money damages, but rather immunity from having to go through the costs of a trial at all. Accordingly, courts must resolve qualified immunity issues as early in a case as possible, preferably before discovery.
It appears to me qualified immunity offers the dishonest wiggle room within their behavior, i.e. no potential punishment means I can do what I want; how many politicians, officials, and bureaucrats do you suppose feel this way? Wouldn’t it be great if we took that wiggle room away from them? They would all have to obey the same laws applied to us.
We can, and we do have the power within the U.S. Constitution to take away qualified immunity by insisting our representatives in the House and Senate take action to outlaw the practice. If the Supreme Court decides to reinstate qualified immunity, then our representatives, with our insistence, can impeach any of the Supreme Court justices who voted in favor to reinstate, under Article 3, Section 1 of the Constitution, to wit, The judges, both of the supreme and inferior courts, shall hold their offices during good behavior.
Remember, politicians, judges, officials, and bureaucrats get away with only what We the People allow!

The Lock-down of businesses and facilities: Unconstitutional. A number of Governors, Mayors, and other officials decided they had/have the right to order the closing of businesses and facilities they deemed as non-essential, and allow the others to remain open. Through arrogance or ignorance, they became liars to their oath of office, even if they claimed "States Rights" under the 10th Amendment which reads: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people. This is false for the following reason: (Section 1, All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.) Article 1, Section 8, Clause 3. To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes. ~So you see, Congress has been empowered to regulate commerce, which puts the lie to politicians and bureaucrats' claim of 10th Amendment States Rights.
House & Senate Dereliction of Duty: When medical experts/advisors deemed quarantine-like action was necessary to combat the deadly spread of the Covid-19 virus, Congress didn't act to regulate commerce. Instead they allowed state and local officials to decide what was necessary. Unfortunately, shutting down our economy was the result.
~Even with the Congressional power to regulate commerce, the 14th Amendment, Section 1 (in part) clearly states: No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. Equal protection of the laws.......Congress would have had to close down all businesses, or none of the businesses. Perhaps this was the reason Congress did not act, and thus left it to the states? On election day, remember who your Senator/House Representative is, and decide if they lacked the courage to act.
By early May of 2020, evidence was beginning to mount that quarantine-like methods, resulting in closing down our economy, was the emotional thing to do, as opposed to the reasonable, efficacious and constitutional thing to do.
Liars to their oath of office are the biggest threat to our United States of America ~Johnny Counterfit
Legislative Branch: Keep in mind, the oath of office words are, support and defend the Constitution of the United States...and NOT interpret the Constitution; by the way, the word interpret is found NOWHERE in the Constitution; the word, interpret should also be stricken from use in law offices and court rooms. A judge and or jury is charged with deciding if the accused broke the law or not; the word interpret should never be allowed.
Judge's Oath of Office
Each justice or judge of the United States shall take the following oath or affirmation before performing the duties of his/her office: “I, ___ ___, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as ___ under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God.” Nowhere are the words "interpret the law."
ATTORNEY’S OATH I, ____ do solemnly swear that I will support the Constitutions of the United States, and of this state; that I will honestly demean myself in the practice of law; that I will discharge my duties to my clients to the best of my ability; and that I will conduct myself with integrity and civility in dealing and communicating with the court and all parties. So help me God. Nowhere are the words "interpret the law."
Excerpts from a book I'm currently writing, The Other Me: With the law, and in terms of the operation of our government, I'll demonstrate how simply obeying our U.S. Constitution will short-circuit a great deal of political and media arguing and missteps simply by asking, is it constitutional, and then act accordingly.
A great many blame "the government" for a lot of our problems, but I insist, the fault lies with We the People for not engaging ourselves well enough to demand our representatives obey the U.S. Constitution, as they have sworn to do.
