The Zombie Amendment: Is America a nation of laws or of men?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

 

The U.S. House of Representatives is attempting to revive a dead proposed constitutional amendment. Ronald Reagan once said, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life well ever see on this earth.” Apparently, that is no longer true since there is also a dead proposed amendment that simply will not go away. Sounding like Dr. Frankenstein, the House of Representatives is crying, Its alive!” when its actually dead.

On March 17th, 2021, the House of Representatives voted 222 to 204 to ignore the dead Equal Rights Amendment’s language. Many claimed that the resolution passed, but well find that no such thing happened if we read the Constitution.

The Resolution:  Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That notwithstanding any time limit contained in House Joint Resolution 208, 92d Congress, as agreed to in the Senate on March 22, 1972, the article of the amendment proposed to the States in that joint resolution shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of the United States Constitution whenever ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States.

H.J. Res. 17 – 117th Congress:  The resolution seems simple enough if we simply ignore the amendment’s language that pertains to the deadline for ratification. However, that brings up the first problem: Should the dead amendment be adopted, it would read as follows:

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled (two-thirds of each House concurring therein), That the following article is proposed as an amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of the Constitution when ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years from the date of its submission by the Congress:

H.J Res. 208 – 92nd CongressIf you look at the document’s right-hand border, you can see that the date of submission was March 23rd, 1972. That is fifty years ago, well past the seven-year deadline in the resolution.

So, if we added this to the Constitution as the House of Representatives wishes, we would have an amendment that directly contradicts its own ratification. This is not the first time Congress has tried to bypass the amendment process. Not only Congress but several states also seem to want to ignore what the dead Equal Rights Amendment actually says, which I discussed in article 136 – Serving Expired Kool-Aid. Here though, we have Congress claiming to pass a resolution without actually passing it.

Amendment Process

The Congress, whenever two-thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution,

U.S. Constitution, Article V:  There are those in the House of Representatives who want to change the dead Equal Rights Amendment but do not have the votes to do so. Do they believe they can ignore the amendment process to get what they want?

H.J. 17 is an attempt to remove language from the dead Equal Rights Amendment. Since that amendment has already been submitted to the states, Congress cant simply modify it; they need to propose a new amendment. Even if H.J. 17 was attempting to propose a modified version of the Equal Rights Amendment, it did NOT, as is claimed in Congress, pass the House of Representatives since it did not get the two-thirds votes required by Article V.

Date Actions Overview

03/17/2021

Passed/agreed to in House: On passage Passed by the Yeas and Nays: 222 – 204 (Roll no. 82).

01/21/2021

Introduced in House

Actions taken on H.J. 17:  Since H.J. 17 did not receive the number of votes in the House of Representatives necessary to proceed as an amendment to the Constitution, this should once again be a dead issue. Instead, claiming that the amended amendment” passed when it did not, this zombie amendment simply will not die. Its being kept alive by a lawless leadership in Congress, their accomplices in the media, and the ignorance of the American people.

So why am I making such a big deal about this Frankensteins monster of an amendment proposal? In drafting the Massachusetts Constitution, John Adams noted that they were creating a government of laws, not of men.” (Article XXX) If this nation is also to be run by a government of laws and not of men, those in government must be forced to obey those laws. Article VI of the Constitution not only declares its the supreme law of the land but that all government officeholders, at all levels, are required to swear or affirm their support of the Constitution in their oath of office.

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution. Still, no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.

U.S. Constitution, Article VI, Clauses 2 & 3:  Those who voted for this resolution to ignore the language of the dead Equal Rights Amendment violated that oath by asking Congress to ignore the very law that created it. The leadership members who continue to claim that H.J. 17 passed the House of Representatives not only violate their oaths but are committing perjury.

The act or crime of willfully making a false oath, when lawfully administered; or a crime committed when a lawful oath is administered in some judicial proceeding, to a person who swears willfully, absolutely, and falsely in a matter material to the issue.

Perjury, Websters 1828 Dictionary:  Since this act of perjury was not committed in a judicial proceeding, I do not believe it is a crime, though the act of willfully making a false statement while acting under their oath of office does seem to indicate they have perjured themselves morally, if not criminally.

Can Congress change an amendment with a simple majority vote?

There are those in Washington, D.C., with their willing accomplices in the media, who want to trick you into believing that the Equal Rights Amendment is still alive and able to be ratified. This is a lie and a perversion of the rule of law. If those who wish to resurrect the ERA were to propose a new amendment in Congress, they are more than able to do so. However, I believe that they recognize that the chances of actually getting two-thirds of both houses of Congress to vote for such an amendment are extremely slim. So rather than following the law, they continue to claim that a lie is the truth and that a simple majority can change an amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

I believe they do this hoping that the American people know so little about their Constitution that they will let them get away with it. That would not only be a setback for the rule of law but the further destruction of the blessings of liberty that the Constitution was written to secure to our children and us. The questions are, will the American people allow their employees in Congress to break the law, damage the republic, and drive us further into tyranny, all in the name of a well-titled amendment?

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.

What the Faux Medicine Pirates Don’t Want You to Know

If people would stop taking the shots, then the world would likely recover. That’s what the faux-medicine pirates don’t want you to know. They will continue to catastrophize every new naturally-occurring strain of virus that comes along, hoping this will scare people into taking the toxic alleged antidote. Perhaps one day people will finally wake up to the truth…

The Criminal Justice System Goes Woke

The Criminal Justice System Goes Woke

The old “three strikes and you’re out” meaning, three felony convictions, and you face jail for life for thugs unsuitable for mixing with decent society, filled up the jails as was intended. Now, under the Progressive government process, they’re simply back out on the streets, often not even going through the trial and conviction process before they commit other heinous crimes…

Omicron: The United States of FEAR

In this issue of the report, we give the first modeling analysis of Omicron and its anticipated transmissibility based on the S1 receptor binding domain mutations.  Fortunately, these preliminary analyses suggest lower transmissibility than for Delta. This means if Omicron supplants Delta as the predominant strain, we may see the first turn for the crisis where cases could wind down…

Disney Relocates 2,000 Workers to Florida due to California’s Oppressive Covid Politics

Since the obtuse pandering ideologies of Covid-19 redefined the economics of California with their narratives of mandates and lockdowns, Walt Disney World Executives were gut-punched in their pocketbooks.

The Hazards of Electric Cars Are Many, the Number of Cars Will be Few

The electric automobile will never exceed 10% of the cars on the road. All automobile manufacturers invest in their output, and all will be disappointed in their sales. Surely not what President Biden or Governor Newsom of California are planning for. For as long as the present government is in power, they will be pushing the electric car as another means to run our lives…

Anthony Fauci’s Role in the USA of FEAR

Dr. Fauci, the highest-overpaid employee of the US Government, is developing a reputation, like Joe Biden, for being wrong nearly all of the time. He moves about in the Progressive dream world of absolute power. He said: “when they criticize science, they’re criticizing me.” Precisely what science is he talking about? It must be ‘political science’ because…

The Biggest Lie in CRT

The Biggest Lie in CRT

CRT is no more based on truth than is a KKK pamphlet, and really a KKK pamphlet and CRT have a lot in common. Both pretend to provide accurate facts and accurate histories – but both cherry-pick facts to create a pre-arranged narrative. And both narratives are overtly racist. Really, the only difference between CRT adherents and the KKK is the…

FBI’s Informant Program Underhandedly Targets Americans

FBI’s Informant Program Underhandedly Targets Americans

Director Wray’s misleading testimony to Congress in March led Green Beret Jeremy Brown to very publicly release an interview he audiotaped with FBI recruiters in December 2020. In it, they offered him money to become an informant just one month prior to the Capitol event. He refused, turned whistleblower, and began sharing the audiotape on every social media outlet he could. That one decision changed Brown’s life forever…

Truth is, it’s Definitely a Pandemic of the Vaccinated

As data from the most heavily vaccinated countries in the world, such as Israel, Singapore, Iceland, etc., now unequivocally demonstrate, the vaccinated are the most sickened. Data from the British government shows that the infection rate among fully vaccinated people in their 40s was 100% higher than among the unvaccinated. In the Irish counties of Waterford and Carlow, where 99.7% and 98% of all adults are vaccinated, cases are exploding…

Biden Administration Promotes New Land Grab on Farmers

Biden Administration Promotes New Land Grab on Farmers

The Biden Administration reverses back to Obama regulations, reversing Trump policy, “to restore federal protections for hundreds of thousands of small streams, wetlands, and other waterways.” This simply creates yet one more obstacle for our great American farmers to feed us healthily and economically. As if our farmers did not have enough problems already with the regular attacks from the left today…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #10

What’s the risk of receiving blood from a vaxed person for surgery? How do people with suppressed immune systems (Multiple sclerosis) handle COVID?

The District of Columbia Act of 1871 & the Power to Control Government

The District of Columbia Act of 1871 & the Power to Control Government

There’s nothing in the Constitution or laws of the United States that allows the District of Columbia to be a private corporation or to exercise any power over another city or state. This appears to be little more than a tactic to scare the American people into believing their control over government has been taken away by some mysterious cabal of evildoers…
