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.

The Pseudoscience of Tyrants: A Deadly Wager

The current COVID-19 pandemic consists of a “novel” strain of coronavirus that for all its mysteries of origin and viral characteristics has a 99.7 percent survival rate.

Gullibles Travels!

Biden thinks they’re coming because he’s a nice guy. A nice guy or not, he’s created a humanitarian problem, but more critically, he’s created a National Insecurity Problem. While Joe counts the future Democrats entering America as migrants, are we being set up for another 9/11?

God and Taxes, Faith and Truth

God and Taxes, Faith and Truth

The plan’s methodology calls for the creation of jealousy and anger towards anyone who has more than you as a motivator. This is just another example of separation of people and not bringing folks together. In Segment Two, I look at the place of religion and God in our lives and the journey to understanding. Is there a meeting place for intellect, science, and faith?

Democrats Scorch America

Democrats Scorch America

Remember when… the Constitution actually protected our freedoms? SCOTUS eliminated unconstitutional laws. Families were strong. Children learned the truth in school. There were only two genders, girls were girls and boys were boys. You were allowed to have an opposing opinion. Immigrants helped build America, not tear it down. The American dream of equal opportunity was alive and well.

Marxism Taking a Foothold in America

Radical feminism, the destruction of the family, the loss of our morals, and our history are sowing the seeds of the destruction of America.

Truth, Fiction, or Just Plain Compliance?

Truth, Fiction, or Just Plain Compliance?

If you don’t follow the approved line of thinking and behavior, you are an enemy. Is the mandated mask just a sign of compliance? Is wearing the mask keeping us healthier? Does getting the COVID-19 shot provide you with benefits that will keep you alive, or is getting the shot another sign of compliance?
