Delegated Authority Essay

Delegated Authority
by Steven Miller

Delegated Authority — Part 1 (Link)
The U.S. government is delegated authority.

The 10th Amendment says so, as does the Supreme Court, in many cases. The authors of the Constitution did NOT delegate any authority that they themselves did not have. So how did created-equal citizens of “We The People” get any authority to delegate control over others — such as taxing their neighbors’ wealth, or canceling marriages, or restricting commerce, or make zoning restrictions, or taxing property or inheritance?  Answer: They didn’t.

Delegated Authority — Part 2 (Link)
Did you voluntarily forfeit your rights?
“We The People” who wrote the Constitution, held the truth that all men are created equal.
“We The People” created a government and delegated to their subordinate civil servants the 18 things they would be authorized to do (Article 1, section 8). In turn, government authority controls their inferiors.
Officers of government take an oath-of-office to become inferior to “We The People”. They consent to be governed.
Once they swear an oath to uphold it, they cannot commit mutiny to change it.
If you want to remain equal, — Don’t volunteer to be inferior to the society that created government, who also have a duty to control the creature they inherited.

Delegated Authority — Part 3 (Link)
The Constitution does not change.
Reinterpreting the words of the Constitution is dangerous. George Washington called reinterpreting a Weapon that will destroy free governments. The founding generation gave us a consistent legal meaning that doesn’t change over time.

Delegated authority — Part 4 (Link)
The created equal Citizens of “We The People” that created government DID NOT delegate to their government any authority that they themselves did not have. So, How did “We The People” delegate to their subordinate civil servants any authority that they themselves did not have?

Delegated Authority — Part 5 (Link)
Usurpation is mutiny against the sovereignty of the people.
Reinterpreting the words of the Constitution is dangerous.

Government Overreach
“We The People” now means nothing to the civil servants who swore oaths to obey our Constitution

All executive orders were pre-approved by Congress.

Warning: Conspiracy theory alert.
90 years ago today. FDR took office and started making executive orders to shut down the Federal Reserve and close all banks.
Title 12, U.S. Code, chapter 2, subchapter IV, section § 95b. Ratification of acts of President and Secretary:
“The actions, regulations, rules, licenses, orders and proclamations heretofore or hereafter taken, promulgated, made, or issued by the [executive orders of the]President of the United States or the [unelected] Secretary of the Treasury since March 4, 1933, … are [pre]approved” by congress in 1933.
Without any debate or congress even being told about them.
Title 50 is the War Title. You are still under martial law.
HINT: On 27 April, 1961, JFK warned us about a ruthless conspiracy.
There might just be a continuing conspiracy. Franklin D. Roosevelt was a Freemason. Less than two weeks later, March 23, 1933, the German parliament gave Hitler complete authority to make laws without them. (During World War 1, the head of the Federal Reserve bank was Paul Warburg, while his brother Max Warburg was head of the German central bank.)
In a famous 1939 movie, Toto pulls back the curtain and Oz tells Dorothy to ignore the man behind the curtain.
You are still ignoring the man behind the curtain.
Welcome to your Novus Ordo Seclorum.

The “promise” of Democracy

What is the promise of democracy?
Answer:
Chaos. Corruption. Degenerate savages. The devil’s government.

1. Chaos

In 1836, Chief Justice John Marshall wrote in his biography of George Washington:
“Between a balanced republic and a democracy, the difference is like that between order and chaos.”

The Founders knew that a democracy would lead to the same kind of tyranny the colonies suffered under King George III.

James Madison, 1787, Federalist Paper #10:

“Democracy is the most vile form of government … democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention: have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property: and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.
Theoretical politicians who have patronized this species of government, have erroneously supposed that by reducing mankind to a perfect equality in their political rights, they would at the same time be perfectly equalized and assimilated in their possessions, their opinions, and their passions”

Of course democracies are “spectacles of turbulence and contention.” They are only for those who would take the risk of loosing their rights in exchange for the chance to dominate others.

At the 1787 Constitutional Convention, Edmund Randolph said, “that in tracing these evils to their origin every man had found it in the turbulence and follies of democracy.”

John Adams said in his biography of George Wahington: “Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There was never a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”

Alexander Hamilton:

“We are a Republic. Real Liberty is never found in despotism or in the extremes of Democracy.”

2. Corruption

If you can vote for benefits, you have a conflict of interest. Forced redistribution of wealth CANNOT recognize individual rights.

Democracy cannot be considered as a form of government. Although it starts as a form of government, it quickly dissolves into corruption. The moment a politician makes a promise, is the moment democracy ceases to be a form of government. To use a public office to grant favors to those who elect you is corruption. It is the very definition of corruption. Go look it up in a law dictionary. DEMOCRACY IS CORRUPTION.

According to John Locke’s Second Treatise of Government section 222 the use of a public office to influence your electors will “cut up the government by the roots, and poison the very fountain of public security…”

3. Degenerate savages.

2150 years ago Polybius wrote a 40 volume History Encyclopedia.

Greek Historian Polybius, The Histories Of the Roman Republic 220-146 BC, Book 6, section 9:

“But when a new generation arises and the democracy falls into the hands of the grandchildren of its founders, they have become so accustomed to freedom and equality that they no longer value them, and begin to aim at pre-eminence; and it is chiefly those of ample fortune who fall into this error. So when they begin to lust for power and cannot attain it through themselves or their own good qualities, they ruin their estates, tempting and corrupting the people in every possible way. And hence when by their foolish thirst for reputation they have created among the masses an appetite for gifts and the habit of receiving them, democracy in its turn is abolished and changes into a rule of force and violence. For the people, having grown accustomed to feed at the expense of others and to depend for their livelihood on the property of others, as soon as they find a leader who is enterprising but is excluded from the houses of office by his penury, institute the rule of violence; and now uniting their forces massacre, banish, and plunder, until they degenerate again into perfect savages and find once more a master and monarch.”

And 2000 years ago Plutarch said “It is truly said that the first destroyer of the liberties of a people is he who gave them bounties and largesse. ”

4. The devil’s government

“A simple democracy is the devil’s own government.” [1], [2]

This must have been a popular saying. This quote is often attributed to several American patriots. Most often to Benjamin Rush, or Jedidiah Morse (the “father of American Geography”), but it was actually written by a Presbyterian pastor.

1. L.H. Butterfield, ed., The Letters of Benjamin Rush, vol. 1 (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1951), 454, quoting John Joachim Zubly, Presbyterian pastor and delegate to Congress, in a letter to David Ramsay in March or April 1788.

2. William Elder, Questions of the Day, (Philadelphia: Henry Baird publisher, 1871) page 175, attributes the quote to Thomas Jefferson.

Valley Forge

During General George Washington’s eight years of leading the Continental army, the winter at Valley Forge was the most perilous.

On December 19, 1777, the Continental army arrives at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia. Their winter quarters would become famous for extreme hardship and misery. Supplies were already exhausted, food was scarce and typhus overwhelmed them. 2,500 soldiers will die; another 2,000 will desert.

“These are the times that try men’s souls; the summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.”
— Thomas Paine, The Crisis.

“Under all those disadvantages no men ever show more spirit or
prudence than ours. In my opinion nothing but virtue has kept
our army together through this campaign.”
— Colonel John Brooks, letter written from Valley Forge, January 5, 1778

They were willing to live free or die.

HOW ABOUT YOU?
Are you even willing to take a Stand?

“Posterity! You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it.”
— John Quincy Adams, Letter to Abigail Adams, April 26, 1777

The Boston Tea Party

December 16, 1773; The Boston Tea Party.

America has a strong heritage of tax rebellion.
There was no income tax or any direct tax on people in the Colonies.
When the tax on tea got to 17% we could not tolerate the tyranny.

In the Boston Tea Party, citizens, some disguised as Indians, swarm over British ships and dump 342 chests of tea into Boston Harbor. Led by Samuel Adams, the American colonists had refused to buy the English tea to protest the violation of their constitutional right not to be taxed without representation. (This constitution was not the U.S. constitution).

Sam Adams would write in his journal (December, 17 1773) that the “destruction of the tea is so bold, so daring, so firm, intrepid and inflexible, and it must have important consequences.”

Tax rebellion.

After the war, we had direct tax on people to extinguish the war debt. Then we were free.

By the time of Thomas Jefferson’s inauguration, March 4, 1805, he asked:
“what farmer, what mechanic, what laborer, ever sees a tax-gatherer of the United States?”

That’s correct. Your constitutional right, as a Citizen, is to be free from federal tax collectors.

Prove it to yourself.
Go to the index of federal laws and lookup:

  • income tax, aliens
  • income tax, Citizens
  • aliens, income tax

The end of Americana

Americana has been destroyed by socialism. Cloward-Pivin politicians have thrown us into Gehenna — the burning garbage pit of Biblical proportions.

Americana

President Teddy Roosevelt’s speech to the New York City Chamber of Commerce, November 11, 1902:

“…  the traditional American self-reliance of spirit which makes them scorn to ask from the government, whether of State or of Nation, anything but a fair field and no favor; who confide not in being helped by others, but in their own skill, energy, and business capacity to achieve success. The first requisite of a good citizen in this Republic of ours is that he shall be able and willing to pull his weight that he shall not be a mere passenger, but shall do his share in the work that each generation of us finds ready to hand; and, furthermore, that in doing his work he shall show not only the capacity for sturdy self-help but also self-respecting regard for the rights of others.”

  • traditional American self-reliance
  • scorn to ask from the government
  • a fair field and no favor
  • not in being helped by others
  • able and willing to pull his weight that he shall not be a mere passenger
  • shall do his share in the work
  • sturdy self-help
  • self-respecting regard for the rights of others

Consequences

Ignorance of the law is no excuse. “The civil laws reduce an ungrateful freedman to his original slavery” Libertinum ingratum leges civiles in pristinam servitutem redigunt. Every Law Dictionary will tell you this.

Voting to enrich yourself at the expense of others it a conflict of interest. It is the very definition of corruption.  Today’s self-exalted socialist agitators insist that they are entitled to live more comfortably at the expense of others — through a system of force, fear and violence — to extract the lifeblood of their neighbors. Traditional Americana worked because it is a system of treating your neighbor as you would treat yourself.

The Golden Rule has been replaced by violent corruption.

Learn to spot the difference between violence and charity.

The first sentence of the Declaration of Independence says that it is the laws of Nature that entitle the United States to exist.

The laws of nature require that rights be respected.

Natural Liberty and Personal Liberty as defined in Black’s Law Dictionary, Second Edition.

If your liberty is interfered by those who have no respect for the Golden Rule, the laws of nature provide a remedy. The Maxim of Law remains with us today: Legibus sumptis desinentibus, lege naturae utendum est. When laws of the state fail, we must resort to the laws of nature.

Quiz: Are you free or are you a slave?

Are you free or are you a slave? The same question continues throughout history.  In the Bible, even God considered a 20% income tax to be slavery. Slaves under Pharaoh had a 20% income tax during a time of national emergency (Genesis 47:23-26). The other 80% was their living allowance.

Slavery Today

The Thirteenth Amendment only abolished involuntary servitude. What are the chances that you volunteered into slavery? There is a maxim of law that says “a state of dependence will inevitably oblige the inferior to take the will of him, on whom he depends, …”

You were created equal. You became inferior to the government your ancestors had a duty to control. You cannot complain*. You fell for legalities that you don’t understand.

A judge has only two categories to put you into. Omnes hominess aut liberi sunt aut servi. All men are freemen or slaves.

Warnings

  • Rights only come with responsibilities. If you want rights, you must remain responsible for managing your own affairs in life.
  • Every Law Dictionary will tell you that Libertinum ingratum leges civiles in pristinam servitutem redigunt. “The civil laws reduce an ungrateful freedman to his original slavery” Maybe you think this law does not apply to you. Maybe you think that you are not a slave. Think again.
  • Just what is this civil law that reduces a freeman to slavery? It is the ancient Roman Law that became our received-law-of-the-land. In the Roman law that is now our law, forced confessions are legal. See my lesson  Civil Law is Roman Law – Do Not Be Fooled by Government (NotFooledByGovernment.com) You might also be interested in the loss of rights, which always includes loss of control over your family. Capitis Diminutio – Do Not Be Fooled by Government (NotFooledByGovernment.com)

Law Dictionary definition of Civil Law

  • If you cannot manage you own affairs in life, you cannot be a freeman. Asking for welfare benefits is proof that you cannot manage yourself. “An implied procuration takes place when an individual sees another managing his affairs and does not interfere to prevent it”. (law dictionary definition of tacit procuration) Those who are managed have no say in how they are treated. There is no remedy for those who are damaged by their agent. Procurationem adversus nulla est praescriptio. And there are dozens of other legal reasons. The Supreme Court said “the citizen cannot complain because he has voluntarily submitted himself to such a form of government.”*

  • In the Declaration of Independence, we hold the truth that all men are created equal. You remained equal until you applied for federal benefits offered under the authority of the 14th Amendment. By applying for federal benefits, you used the Expatriation Act of 1868 to “promptly and finally disavowed any State allegiance.” You are no longer equal to the class of Citizens who created the federal government. You are no longer one of “We The People”. You are an ungrateful freedman. You did not inherit their government, and cannot have the right to control what We The People” created.
  • According to the Social Security Act Section 205(c)(2)(B)(i)(II), Social Security Numbers are only given to an “applicant for or recipient of benefits under any program financed in whole or in part by Federal funds”. And to aliens after 1972. Applying for a SSN is a confession that you cannot manage your own affairs in life.
  • although you were created equal, you chose to be ungrateful for your freedoms. You abandoned your State’s sovereignty. States were created to free themselves from federal jurisdiction.

Now you know what category a judge must put you into. Welcome to your Novus Ordo Seclorum.

USA is a free country

But you expatriated. So don’t claim to live in a free country.

“Are men the property of the state? Or are they free souls under God? This same battle continues throughout the world.”

Are you property of the state?

Barack Obama’s speech at Brussels, Belgium, March 26, 2014, announces a new world order. He was comparing the traditional U.S. values with traditional European values. He said that European hierarchy considers that
“ordinary men and women are too small-minded to govern their own affairs, that order and progress can only come when individuals surrender their rights to an all-powerful sovereign.”

Whereas U.S. values consider that all men are created equal with unalienable rights.

He did not directly announce what side he was on, but he did say:

“And for the international order that we have worked for generations to build …

Obama’s goal that took Generations to build…  sounds just like the Fabian Society 1928 goal
“The immediate task before all people, a planned World State, is appearing at a thousand points of light [but]…generations of propaganda and education may have to precede it.”
Which seems like the same global domination that ruled millennia ago.
And the same battle continues throughout the world today, as it did 4000 years ago. The New world order IS the old world order.
“Are men the property of the state? Or are they free souls under God? This same battle continues throughout the world.”

The Globalist agenda uses symbols to boldly proclaim that you are back under the bondage of Pharoah.
But this time it is much worse. Slaves under Pharaoh had a 20% income tax during a time of national emergency (Genesis 47:26).  The other 80% was their living allowance. How does this compare to your take-home allowance?  God himself considered 20% income tax to be slavery, and provided 10 plagues to free his people.
Free yourself, or pay Pharaoh his tale of bricks.  (the terminology Tale of bricks is from Genesis 5:18).

“Let the CRY FOR FREEDOM go around the world.”

Can a Christian be a socialist?

Can a Christian be a socialist? Christ told us not to be socialists. But we are. The Bible admonishes us against any government welfare.

  • Abraham delivered us from Babylon, when Nimrod was a mighty provider instead of the Lord. Genesis 10:9.
  • Moses delivered us from Pharoah.
  • Christ delivered us from Roman Empire’s martial law.

They set their followers free from socialist government. Now it is your turn.

After they were free, the entire community took care of themselves without a central government.  There was no central government for the first 10 books of the Bible. Then, Saul was elected as king. This election was evil in the eyes of the Lord, according to First Samuel 12:17.
There is a reason that the Declaration of Independence says we are all created equal. We were warned about having a top-down government. First Samuel 8:10-17 warned us that a central government would tax, tax, tax, tax, tax and tax, until we cry out to the Lord. And the Lord will not hear us in that day. First Samuel 8:18

“18 And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.”

DEFINITIONS

  • Christian: one who obeys the commands of Christ.
  • Socialist: one who receives benefits of forced wealth distribution (taken by force, fear and violence). Note: this does NOT include one who receives voluntary charity (given out of love of neighbor).

U.S. HISTORY of freedom seeking

The Mayflower Pilgrims set themselves free from King James and his government published Bible. They risked 88 days at sea to live free or die.

To counter those rumors that the “general welfare” clause in the proposed Constitution would authorize any kind of welfare, James Madison, in Federalist Paper #41, explained its clear intent. He stated that it “is an absurdity” to claim that the General Welfare clause confounds or misleads, because this introductory clause is followed by enumeration of specific particulars that explain and qualify the meaning of phrase “general welfare”. That’s right! Your Constitution was ratified under the assurance that it would never be interpreted to provide welfare to individuals. This was also true when Samuel Adams told the greedy anti-freedom freeloaders (speech at the Pennsylvania State House, August 1, 1776) to “crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.”

In the U.S., wagon trains of freemen headed west to set themselves free from government. When their areas became federal territories, they wrote their State constitutions in order to free themselves from federal jurisdiction. Their huddled masses yearned to breathe free.

Throughout history, new freedom finders had to learn how to take care of themselves. They had to voluntarily help the orphans and widows, heal the sick, feed the hungry, comfort the afflicted, shelter the homeless, provide for old age, etc. They had to establish justice, punish criminals, and provide for the common defense. These are your natural duties, even without a government.

Soon, it will be your turn.
By the way, they used a non-government “monetary system” of gold and silver. I recommend a book, Miracle on Main Street, by F. Tupper Saussy.

YOUR DUTY TO YOUR FELLOW MAN

You have a duty to help out your neighbor. It is one of the definitions of the word “Religion”. Religion is how you take care of the needy of society. (see Webster’s first edition definition of religion. Second meaning. Religion is the performance of your duty to God and to your fellow man.)
https://webstersdictionary1828.com/Dictionary/religion

You cannot be set free until you learn how to take care of your neighbor as you would want them to take care of you. The Golden rule is not just a wise saying, it comes from Christ himself in Matthew 7:12.

Become a self-sufficient community. At Pentecost all of the Christians had to immediately start taking care of one another.

If your social welfare is coming from socialist men who exercise authority, (“exercise lordship” in the KJV, rule over others) to call themselves benefactors, then YOU are not going to be free.

You are not operating according to the perfect law of liberty (that takes care of widows and orphans, James 1:25,27, to keep yourself unspotted from the world). Nor are you operating according to a system of faith, hope and charity. You are using a system of force, fear and violence. And you are not following the commands of Christ.

WARNINGS

If you are coveting your neighbors’ wealth through men who exercise authority over others, you are doing the opposite of what Christ said to do. Christ himself said we are not to be that way (Luke 22:26). But, you are that way. Christ kept warning us over and over again. Peter, James and Paul, all said it. Mark chapter 7 tells us that Corban (forced sacrifices) nullify the word of God. And even the pagan empires knew that forced redistribution of wealth would turn people into perfect savages. *

Christ continues in Luke 22 verse 26, and tells us to have a bottom-up government — implied: where we choose which servant will administer our voluntary donations (sacrifices) in a “daily ministration” (mentioned in Acts 6) to the needy of society, in a welfare system of love-your-neighbor. Not a top-down government to force our sacrifices (socialism). And certainly not a government where you get to elect your new masters.

Second Thessalonians 3:10: “if any would not work, neither should he eat.” These words are in your Bible. Second Thessalonians 3:6-14 tells us not to associate with freeloaders. This does not prohibit charity for the needy. It prohibits able-bodied socialists who refuse to work.

You are to administer your charity in a way that strengthens the disadvantaged.

BORN AGAIN?
You are NOT born again if you keep doing evil (John 3:18-21, for example). The Bible warned you.  Just because a fallen “church” wants you to repeat a chant, is not going to get you into heaven. You cannot keep repeating the deeds of the Nicolaitans and claim to be born again. You cannot repeat the error of Balaam and claim to be born again.

If you exercise authority through an agency of socialist government that uses force to take from your neighbors, then you are doing evil, you cannot be born again. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wealth. You have no right to live comfortably at your neighbors’ expense.

If you covet your neighbors’ wealth to educate your children, provide health care, provide senior care, or even pave the roads (Read Madison’s veto of infrastructure appropriations bill.), then you are not Christian. You are not born again.

Federal Infrastructure Laws are Unconstitutional

cartoon entitled “Planned Economy or Planned Destruction?” was from a 1934 Chicago Tribune, right after they took our gold, and while the Social Security Act was being debated.

A Christian is one who obeys the commands of Christ.

Repent and sin no more. Seek ye first the kingdom of heaven and all his righteousness (Matthew 6:33).

FOOTNOTE

* Before the Pax Romana, and before the Roman bread and circuses, and before the Caesars, and before the Colosseum, the pagan Roman Empire knew that Socialism was morally bankrupt. They knew that socialists would revert into perfect savages. Why don’t we know this today?

About 2150 years ago, Historian Polybius wrote The Histories of the Roman Empire, Book 6, section 9:

“But when a new generation arises and the democracy falls into the hands of the grandchildren of its founders, they have become so accustomed to freedom and equality that they no longer value them, and begin to aim at pre-eminence; and it is chiefly those of ample fortune who fall into this error. So when they begin to lust for power and cannot attain it through themselves or their own good qualities, they ruin their estates, tempting and corrupting the people in every possible way. And hence when by their foolish thirst for reputation they have created among the masses an appetite for gifts and the habit of receiving them, democracy in its turn is abolished and changes into a rule of force and violence. For the people, having grown accustomed to feed at the expense of others and to depend for their livelihood on the property of others, as soon as they find a leader who is enterprising but is excluded from the houses of office by his penury, institute the rule of violence; and now uniting their forces massacre, banish, and plunder, until they degenerate again into perfect savages and find once more a master and monarch.”

Even Abraham Lincoln told us the same thing, September 11, 1858:

“Accustomed to trampling on the rights of others you have lost the genius of your own independence and become the fit subjects of the first cunning tyrant who rises among you.”
