Nullification flurry spurs TAC to create legislative tracking page

The Tenth Amendment Center also maintains a public page on Facebook where more than 57,000 fans ‘Like’ the page. (Graphic: Snip from TAC Facebook page)As Democrats continue to expand the federal government’s role in our daily lives, states are fighting laws that violate limitations on federal powers. The most useful weapon in these states’ arsenals is nullification.

The Tenth Amendment Center has taken note of numerous bills pending in state legislatures, creating a legislative tracking page to help voters stay informed.

As half the nation reels, Tenthers look to states for relief from federal oppression

'The Original Constitution' is one of the books the Tenth Amendment Center promotes. (Image: TAC Book Store)People who study policy, legislation and executive power know what four more years of President Barack Obama will really mean. I predict Obama will make President George W. Bush look like a choir boy.

Obama has handed over the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to the United Nations. He has overturned laws via the executive office and ramped up spying on Americans. He even had the audacity to classify an act of terrorism—the Ft. Hood shootings—as workplace violence.

Anyone who has studied this administration’s actual deeds as opposed to theatrics, fiction and rhetoric is reeling at his reelection.

Meanwhile, the Tenth Amendment Center is promoting a much needed message—states’ rights as a means of curtailing excess of federal powers.

10th Amendment Center fires on HuffPo’s anti-nullification rant—figuratively 

An article currently running at the Huffington Post targets “nullifiers” like me.

Those of us who believe in the U.S. Constitution know the federal government has transgressed legal limitations so profoundly it will take decades to restore real liberty to our country. And that will happen only if we elect liberty-minded leaders. We have a vast amount of work to do.

The article, “The Return of the Nullifiers,” is written by Josh Horwitz,  Executive Director, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. No, I’m not going to link to anything at HuffPo—just Bing the title.

SPLC does it again with bizarre label for Tenth Amendment Center founder

Michael Boldin is founder of the Tenth Amendment Center. (Photo: TAC)Late last night I decided to peek at Facebook since I haven’t had a lot of time for it these past few days.

 I saw a post from one of my groups, the Tenth Amendment Center. The post said the Southern Poverty Law Center listed TAC founder Michael Boldin as one of "30 New Activists Heading Up the Radical Right."

Tenth Amendment Center explains founders approved of judicial review of bad law

Photo of a painting of Alexander Hamilton, Founding Father who was the first U.S. Treasury Secretary and one of the first constitutional lawyers. Hamilton saw judicial review as an essential pillar in protecting limitations set forth in the Constitution. (Photo: Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division, Detroit Publishing Company Collection)The Tenth Amendment Center tackled the issue of judicial review— whether our country’s founders “expected the courts to void laws they found unconstitutional.”

Rob Natelson, constitutional scholar, author and former law professor, explains the history of the practice including something most people don’t know.

Before the recent abundant discussions of Marbury vs.Madison (1803), Natelson said,“ [T]here were over thirty episodes in which American courts voided state or federal laws for unconstitutionality.”

Natelson also points out that one misunderstanding stems from the founders’ rejection of the body called a council of revision. That process gave a review panel of executive and judicial officers veto power over a proposed law.

Provision in Obama jobs bill stomps 11th amendment to Constitution

President Barack Obama and members of Congress have often played the role of constitutional usurper, abusing the commerce clause in the Constitution to suit their fancy.

Obama’s American Jobs Act continues the tradition the president embraced with the individual mandate in ObamaCare.

The Tenth Amendment Center issued a statement that if properly comprehended, should raise flags all around because Obama's jobs bill appears to nullify the 11th amendment prohibiting suits by individuals against states in federal court. That’s not the only problem.

Tenth Amendment Center corrects Maddow’s revisionist nullification history

The new socialist buzzword is ‘extremist’, a term statists use to label anyone who disagrees with the concept of Nanny rule as opposed to wise governance. The Tenth Amendment Center, an organization growing in influence among those who respect and understand the US Constitution, responds to Maddow’s revisionist history on nullification with a formal statement.
 
On Tuesday, MSNBC pundit Rachel Maddow used the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War as an occasion to paint advocates of state sovereignty and the principle of nullification as racist “neo-confederates.”

What most big media and the majority of Americans don’t realize is that supporters of the Tenth Amendment Center, often called ‘Tenthers’, predate President Barack Obama.
