Federal Supremacy or State Sovereignty

Terms like “State Sovereignty” and “Nullification” are treated like bywords by those who believe in federal supremacy. The question is, are states sovereign? Did the federal government create the states or the other way around? Does the federal government tell the states what they can do, or do the states order the federal government around? We start with just that discussion. Once we understand the roles and relative powers between the states and the federal government, we can correctly answer the question, are States Sovereign?

Then, we need to discuss the idea of nullification. Again, the term “nullification” is used as a boogie man, claiming that it is a violation of the Supremacy Clause, in order to scare people into compliance. But much of what is termed “nullification” isn’t nullification at all, but the states refusing to comply with federal directives that are void. Once we have a working understand of both state sovereignty and nullification, we can look at some recent actions from the states and understand not only what they are doing, but whether or not it is legal.

Paul Engel

Author and speaker Paul Engel has spent more than 20 years studying and teaching about both the Bible and the U.S. Constitution. That experience helps Paul explain difficult concepts in a way most people can understand. As one manager described, “Paul can take the most complex idea and explain it in a way my grandmother can understand.” Freely admitting that he “learned more about our Constitution from School House Rock (a Saturday morning cartoon) than in 12 years of school,” he says that anyone can be a constitutional scholar. Since 2014 I have been helping everyday Americans read and study the Constitution of their country and teaching the rising generation to be free. Using news and current events as a springboard, I explain the Constitution and encourage others to stand up and secure the blessings of liberty for themselves, their children, and the nation.

Whenever any Form of Government Becomes Destructive of These Ends

The Constitution Study with Host Paul Engel – When I first heard about the FBI raid on President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, my instincts said this was a political attack. While we are still in the early days of this scandal, what I have found so far gives me little reason to reconsider. If We the People do not alter the federal government soon, our only choices will be between…

Hope and Fear in the Midterm Elections

Chasing Justice with Lt. Joe Pangaro – The upcoming Midterm elections offer hope and fear to the people of America.

The Constitution Study with Host Paul Engel – Government-controlled dystopias where regulation, propaganda, and immunity for government officials will lead to shortages, misery, and death.

Not All Public Health Emergencies Are Treated Equally

America Out Loud PULSE with Dr. Vaughn & Dr. Tankersley – The difference seems to be when a disease affects a protected class, homosexual males, and the public health authorities respond to the disease differently.
