[Note: Due to the need to develop a full understanding of each of the elements that have led to the Death of our Constitutional Republic, this article will contain 3 parts. Below is the first installment of this article]
What is the Death of a Constitutional Republic?
Definition: Constitutional Republic; “A government in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives responsible to them and governing according to law as defined by their agreed upon Constitution.”
The Founders of this great nation were made up of individuals residing in virtually independent “colonial” States with power concentrated in these States and not in a centralized Federal power. The Founders to a man fought hard in constructing our Constitution so that a Federal Government could not threaten the autonomy of its individual States. They crafted a Constitution that spelled out a narrow set of powers that would be vested in the Federal Government with every other power left to the States.
Our Constitution was crafted by our Founders to eliminate the possibility of a monarchy (government by one) or an oligarchy (government by the few), to foreclose on the notion that the sovereign citizen could become subservient to the government rather than the government being subservient to its citizens. Our Founders gave us a roadmap to how they envisioned the power hierarchy of the Government to be constructed;
- First, Article One describes the powers of the people as exercised by their elected representatives in the Senate and the House of Representatives;
- Second, Article Two established the office of the President and his executive powers;
- Third, the Founders established the Supreme Court and defined their powers and how the lower courts could be created by the President and the Congress;
- Article Four they defined the powers of the States
- Other Articles cover how to amend the Constitution, the absolute requirement for all elected and appointed government officials to swear an oath to follow and defend the Constitution (Not the Government), and then how to ratify the Constitution and any follow-on amendments.
The Founders vested the ability to create and/or change Federal laws solely in our legislative branch of government, the Senate and the House of Representatives. This was to ensure that the citizens direct representatives held sway over the Central Government. Next, the Founders created an executive Branch, led by a President, with powers to carry out the laws of the land; exercise civilian power of the military; the power to create a cabinet or super board of directors to help him decide on courses of action or inaction, the power to pardon anyone charged with or convicted of federal crimes; to make treaties with other sovereign nations with the advice and consent of the Senate; and appoint judges to the Supreme Court, Ambassadors, and all other officers of the Federal Government with the advice and consent of the Senate. In order to preclude the President committing “High Crimes and Misdemeanors”, the Founders gave the power to impeach and remove the President to the Senate and the House of Representatives.
The final branch of Government was the Supreme Court that was initially defined with limited responsibilities and powers. It is important to note that the Founders did not envision that this Court would be superior to the Legislative or the Executive branches of the government. The first sentence in Article Three that defined the court stated; “The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority“. It did not say nor has it been amended to say that this Court has the power to DEEM A DULY ADOPTED AND SIGNED LAW AS UNCONSTITUTIONAL! This power was given to the Supreme Court BY ITSELF in the Marbury v Madison Supreme Court Decision in 1803. This is key to understand how critical the Supreme Court has been in setting up the demise of our Constitutional Republic. The 9 men and women in Black on the Supreme Court form an Oligarchic ruling class…
The death then of a Constitutional Republic occurs when the sovereign citizens and their representatives are no longer governed according to their original Constitution and its rule of law. When the Federal Government exceeds its enumerated powers of its citizens or their States.
Death can occur as a result of one or more of the Federal Branches of Government usurping dominant power over the others and the citizens and their States or two of more of the Branches working in concert to usurp dominant power over the others and the citizens and their States. Our current demise has come at the hands of an oligarchic Supreme Court; An executive Branch that has legislated via unchallenged Executive Orders; Departments and bureaucracies within the Executive Branch that have bastardized the rule of law, used espionage capabilities in an unlawful manner against our own government and its citizens, usurped legislative and penal powers to be used against its own citizens; and sadly, abetted by a legislative branch that has sat by and allowed the Supreme Court and the Executive Branch and its unlawful departments to destroy our Constitutional Republic by consolidating all of its citizens’ power into itself!
What Does the Death of Our Constitutional Republic Look Like, The Rise of State Legalism
Our Constitutional Republic is being eliminated by the rise of State Legalism. State Legalism is when the State, an oligarchy of a few powerful people and their followers in government and the media, replaces the Constitutional Rule of Law with its own Legalism by coercing obedience and eliminating the citizens’ faith in our Constitutional Republic. At best, this is a silent coup but it can morph into a violent coup if challenged!
Today, we see the Federal Judiciary Branch legislating from the Bench at every turn and thwarting duly adopted and executed Federal Laws. We have seen, during the Obama and other Administrations, the Executive Branch issuing Executive Orders that are not clarifying how to execute duly adopted and executed Federal Laws by actually writing or re-writing Federal Law. We have seen that the DOJ and its FBI selectively applying the law in political partisan fashion and using Foreign Intelligence laws against our own citizens for political gain and/or retribution. In other cases, they have used their legal authorities to exonerate otherwise guilty parties out of political partisanship. This has extended to the IRS, the CIA, the DNI and other powerful departments and agencies. Congress seems to be incapable of asserting itself in a meaningful way by either enacting overriding legislation or enforcing its oversight powers. In short, a mere handful, relatively speaking, of unlawful Federal officials and employees, have a chokehold over the Federal government and all US citizens.
This silent coup has taken place with the assistance and absolute concurrence with the majority of the media and has been made possible by corrupting our educational systems. In order to create the illusion that evil is good the education system and the media have changed our social and moral values to the point of accepting moral relativism into our society.
This coup has also been supported and financed by a cabal of international business interest who value their global financial interests over US interests and in fact have used the resources of the US itself to siphon off US power and treasure to other countries such as China. They have also used the precepts of Neo-Conservatism to actually topple foreign governments to unsettle parts of the glove and allow them to buy damaged assets at cents on the dollar.

To summarize, the will of the people has been and the power of the people envisioned by our Founders has been usurped by a relatively low number of people. They have seized control by retooling our educational system to teach historical revisionism, pit one group against another, and to virtually dumb down our youth. At the same time, they have bought up most of the media and use it to sell lies and propaganda to the people. In 2016, the people elected Donald Trump to stop this silent coup via State Legalism. The Key question is whether Donald Trump can stop this silent coup and reverse the march towards State Legalism.
In the next installment, we will take a deeper look into how we got to this point…
