There is a plethora of government corruption that has either tainted or outright destroyed portions of our Constitution. This web page seeks to simply point out the obvious corruption to our beloved Constitution. For an in depth look into the other forms of corruption, feel free to browse this website and/or further your research on the internet. When researching, please make sure sources are credible so as not to obtain disinformation.
When we look at Article 1 Section 2 Clause 3, speaking of taxes, it states;
"Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States..."
Taking that a step further, we can look at Article 1 Section 8 Clause 1, where it states;
" The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;"
However, when we look at the 16th Amendment it clearly states;
"The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States and without regard to any census or enumeration.

Looking at Article 1 Section 3 Clause 1, one would clearly notice the following;
"The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, chosen by the Legislature thereof, 3 for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote."
However when we view the 17th Amendment it states;
"The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each state, elected by the people thereof, for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote."

This article states;
"The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;"
A general welfare clause provides that the governing body empowered by the document may enact laws to promote the general welfare of the people, sometimes worded as the public welfare.
This has been used and abused as a basis for legislating unconstitutional laws in the guise of saving us from ourselves; i.e. seat belt laws.
This article clearly states;
"To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;"
When our founding fathers spoke of the dollar, they were referring to the Spanish Milled Dollar and not the dollar that is known today. This is also related to the 7th Amendment which states;
"In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law."
Our founding fathers knew the value of precious metals, hence why they said to coin our money...not print it.

This particular article clearly states;
"To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings;"
What we need to understand here is under this section of the Constitution, government is only supposed to own 100 miles of DC. If they want to occupy any other land, they have to first obtain permission from that particular State and purchase it. The land can only be used for military bases and buildings to conduct said business. Moreover, government can only enforce their federal laws on the land in which they occupy. They cannot enforce all federal laws over every square inch of America.
Congress does not have constitutional authority in foreign aide, sanctioning another country, healthcare policy or in education. Congress has unwittingly relinquished most of their power onto the president.
1. Education is a State's right.
2. Healthcare is not a federal right, a State's right, a local right or an individual's right. You don't have the right to an automobile, do you? But if you want one, you can get one; hence the pursuit of happiness. It's the same concept for a healthcare policy. You don't have the right to healthcare but if you want a policy, you can get one; hence the pursuit of happiness.
3. There are only two reasons for foreign aid; bribery and blackmail.
4. Sanctioning another country does not affect the governing body of that nation. It affects the innocent citizens. The citizens are unfortunately caught in the middle of two tyrannical governments and they are the ones that pay the price.
Today's patriot groups and militias are not constitutional. This isn't saying anything bad about any individual or group either.
In order to be a Constitutional Militia, we have to look at Article 1 Section 8 Clauses 15 and 16 of the Constitution.
Congress organizes, arms and trains the militia. Congresss may also call upon the militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress insurrection and repel invasions. The respective State of a militia appoints the officers of their State's Militia and trains their militia according to what/how Congress has prescribed.
The 5th Amendment states;
"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury;"
We the People never gave government the authority to create or control the grand jury nor did we give Congress the authority to pass laws governing how the grand jury should operate.
We the People created the Constitution, and in turn, created Article III which creates the Supreme Court. Moreover, we allow Congress to create inferior federal courts. No State courts were ever created by the Constitution because the States were pre-existing Sovereign parties to the supreme law.
The grand jury is solely mentioned in the 5th Amendment and nowhere else in the Constitution. It was never assigned to the government. As the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Scalia once said,
"It [grand jury] is a constitutional fixture in its own right."
The grand jury is in fact our 4th branch of government and was designed to hold the other branches accountable when they failed to hold themselves accountable.
The grand jury was a group of people that investigated government corruption and misconduct without waiting for or being controlled by a prosecutor or a judge. They had unrestrained investigation and had an independent declaration of findings. Grand juries didn't need authorization from its constituting court to initiate an investigation nor did the prosecutor require leave of court to seek a grand jury indictment. It swore in its own witnesses and deliberated in total secrecy so as to avoid intrusion from a judge and/or prosecutor. Furthermore, without the armed force of the militia, right alongside the grand jury, they cannot do their part to preserve, protect and defend the U.S. Constitution and maintain America's rule of law.
In 1946, the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure were adopted. In rules 6 and 7, they denied future generations the traditional powers of common law grand juries. They inserted the practice of a prosecutor into the process. This prosecutor must approve and sign off on the grand jury's findings and that within itself is completely unconstitutional.
When looking at Article 1 Section 8 Clause 15, it specifically states;
"To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union;"
Constitutional Militias, within their respective States, were supposed to be the ones to enforce the laws of this country, not police officers. The concept of police officers was taken from the Bobbies of England.
Even these Supreme Court cases state;
Sapp v Tallahassee 348 SO.2d363;
Reiff v City of Philadelphia, 477 F. Supp. 1262;
Lynch v N.C. Dept. of Justice, 376 S.E. 2d 247
"It is not the duty of the police to protect you. Their job is to protect the Corporation and arrest code breakers."
You might not like to hear it and I cringe when I say it but this is a fact.
Article 1 Section 8 Clause 13 states;
"To provide and maintain a Navy;"
Article 1 Section 8 Clause 12 states;
"To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;"
That's not referring to our current Army or Marines. Raising and supporting armies is, yet again, referring to our Constitutional Militias.
Now you can include the Coast Guard and even the Air Force as being constitutional because those two branches, in conjunction with the Navy, were meant to protect our borders; not to be sent overseas to fight a banker's war.
The president of the united States of America only has nine responsibilities.
1. He is the Commander in Chief of the Military ONLY when the military is called upon.
2. He can ask for the opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments.
3. He can grant reprieves and pardons except in cases of impeachment.
4. He can make treaties and they can only be accepted if they are confirmed by two-thirds of the Senate and if they are consistent with Article 6 Section 2 of the Constitution.
5. He can nominate and/or appoint Ambassadors, public Ministers, Consuls and Judges of the Supreme Court as well as other officers of the United States whose appointments are not already provided for.
6. He has the ability to fill up vacancies that may happen during recess of the Senate by granting commissions which will end at the end of their next session.
7. From time to time, he will give Congress a “State of the Union” and recommend their consideration to issues that he feel are necessary and important.
8. Only by extraordinary occasions, he may convene both Houses, or either of them and if they cannot agree, he may adjourn them until a further time that he deems necessary.
9. He may receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers, make sure the laws are being followed and have the ability to commission all officers of the United States.
Presidents have been working outside the realm of their executive authority for decades now. The executive branch is supposed to be in service of the legislative. The president was never meant to be the leader of a free world rather an ambassador to the States in foreign affairs. He is not the designator of war. He is the Commander-in-Chief of our military only when there has been a formal declaration of war by Congress.
