In “COOPERATIVE FEDERALISM” Dr. Brown explains the difference between the jurisdictions of the “United States” (the U.S. government in Washington, DC) and the 50 independent, sovereign “states of the Union”. He does NOT offer his opinions. Instead, he illustrates the historical facts primarily through citations of U.S. Supreme Court decisions.
Each of the 50 independent, sovereign states of the Union is a FOREIGN COUNTRY with respect to the other 49 Union states AND with respect to the United States government. Therefore, unless a specific power was given to Congress in the Constitution, acts passed by Congress have NO authority or jurisdiction within the 50 Union states. Such acts passed by Congress (federal statutes) apply ONLY within Washington, DC, federal territories, and areas within a state ceded to the United States government for certain purposes.
Indeed, regulations by executive branch agencies, most rulings by federal courts, and even presidential “Executive Orders” apply only within Washington, DC (plus U.S. government employees). In short, except for powers explicitly enumerated in the Constitution, the United States government has NO jurisdiction within any of the 50 sovereign states of the Union for the simple fact that each state is its own sovereign country. Likewise, each state (a sovereign country) has jurisdiction ONLY over the people within that particular state. Thus, the New York state government has NO jurisdiction or authority over a man or woman who resides in Maine or any other of the Union states OR Washington, DC. The New York state government has jurisdiction only within its physical boundaries. All other 49 states of the Union AND Washington, DC are considered “foreign states” (i.e., foreign countries). —- by John-Henry Hill
All of this is true of the unincorporated united States of America. As it now stands all of those States of such as GEORGIA, CALIFORNIA, NEW YORK, etc are all franchises of the corporate government in the District of Columbia. The people that were born on the land of any of the sovereign states are American nationals by birth. They are not under the jurisdiction of the corporate government in Washington, D.C. nor are they under the jurisdiction of any franchise of that corporation unless they have agreed to be so. People that were born in one of the sovereign states have you been told this? Have you been asked are you a U.S. Citizen? Unless you work for this corporation or you were born in Washington, D.C, or one of the possessions such as Guam, Puerto Rico, or the VIrgin Islands you are not a U.S. Citizen and you are not under their jurisdiction. Declare your political status. These so called fraudulent elections that were just held have nothing to do with you.
Awesome post and reply.
