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.

Children in the Crossfire of Medicine and Science

Whistleblower Report – From abortion and euthanasia of disabled children to the experimental gene therapy COVID shots, the constant promotion of gender confusion, and “white shaming” battering our children from all directions.

The Curious Case of Tulsi Gabbard

The Curious Case of Tulsi Gabbard

After Dark with Hosts Rob & Andrew – What comes as a shock is that the former Hawaii Congresswoman called out her former party for having left the JFK values that the party once stood behind. Now the question becomes, are there any other like-minded Democrats who will follow in her footsteps, or has the party been completely taken over by socialists?

One Surgeon’s Fight Against Race-Baiting Radicalism

America Out Loud PULSE with Dr. Marilyn Singleton – How did we go from an organic cultural shift to include all qualified persons in the medical profession to turning medical schools into socialist indoctrination factories? We’ve gone from equal opportunity to equal outcomes. We’ve regressed from taking it as normal that doctors like my father had patients of all colors, and nobody thought twice about it…

Biden Admins National Security Strategy Attacks Americans

America Emboldened with Greg Boulden – A free society in America is meant to be able to state anti-government and anti-authority speech. Silencing those we disagree with and labeling them as terrorist is an attack of government against its own people. The administration is further weaponizing the tech industry and smartphone devices for unwarranted monitoring of…

Stopping the Useful Idiots Who Run America’s Institutions

Stopping the Useful Idiots Who Run America’s Institutions

The Voice of a Nation with Malcolm Out Loud – The layers of bureaucracies that drive the federal government are just below Congress and the Executive Office. The bureaucrats who control these agencies roost in these positions for years and years. They are unelected and unaccountable to the rule of law. They do as they please. There is no more significant task than fighting back against…

Red Wave, Blue Wave, The Fate of America is in Our Hands

The Prism of America’s Education with Host Karen Schoen – Our expert economic advisors feel we should bring in more illegals and let them compete with Americans to drive down wages to curb inflation. They will digitalize our money and turn us into numbers, not humans. We can not let America become the America described by Ayn Rand. This election will decide…

College Athletes Can Now Monetize “Name, Image and Likeness”

The Other Side of the Story with Dr. Jay Lehr and Tom Harris – Until last year college athletes could only benefit financially from their success through scholarships and stipends due to the NCAA’s “principle of amateurism.” New rules now allow college athletes to monetize their NIL. This means that these sports figures can now earn and accept money doing such things as…

It’s Fear that Sways Voters and Drives America

It’s Fear that Sways Voters and Drives America

Chasing Justice with Lt. Joe Pangaro – Fear can lead people to make choices that are not in their own best interest. Fear can lead to tyranny. We see many examples of this reality across history, and we are seeing it again today as we approach a pivotal election. Lt Joe looks at the fear response in humans and looks at where it is applied in politics to sway voters…
