THE ROOT OF NATIONAL LAWLESSNESS By Keith Hardine

THE ROOT OF NATIONAL LAWLESSNESS

“Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished…” (Romans 13:1-2, NLT)

The progressive elites of America’s Founding Era who governed in the Southern pro-slavery States denied African inhabitants their Natural Right to be equally represented alongside whites because they believed they were exempt from their equal obligation to respect the same “Laws of Nature,” and “Law of Nations.”

Today’s progressive elites, who’s ideas hold the dominant influence over education, money, the media, and cultural privilege, believe they too should be exempt from their obligation to respect these same Laws.

It is a settled point in our nation’s Declaration of Independence with its writer on “the Laws of Nature,” that “all men” inherit from “Nature’s God,” perfect liberty and independence, of which they cannot be deprived without their own consent.

“THE LAW OF NATIONS”–as phrased in the US Constitution Art. 1, Section 8 states that:

“Congress shall have power to define and punish…Offenses against the Law of Nations.”

French philosopher
MONSIEUR DE VATTEL emphasized that: “The Law of Nations is originally no other than the Law of Nature applied to Nations…”

VATTEL Goes on to say concerning such an application that: “As men are subject to the Laws of Nature, — and as their union in civil society cannot have exempted them from the obligation to observe those Laws…the entire nation, whose common will is but the result of the united wills of the citizens, remains subject to the Laws of Nature, [and therefore-of Nations] and is bound to respect them in all her proceedings.”

Outside of his jurisdiction, Governor Jerry Brown’s Trust Act (AB 4 – Ammiano) in 2014, misapplied “the Laws of Nature” and “Law of Nations” by unConstitutionally placing the entire State of California, in a state of insurrection against the Federal Government.

Law enforcement agencies, like the Los Angeles Police Department, under Chief Charlie Beck, have also conspired to commit a crime due to the crimes committed by illegal aliens that he has refused to turn over to ICE.

LA County Supervisors passed a motion to protect illegals in LA County by PROVIDING CITIZEN TAXPAYER FUNDED LEGAL SERVICES AND ATTORNEYS for illegal aliens facing deportation.

[See: U.S. Code, Title 8, Chapter 12, Subchapter II, Part VIII, §1324
§ 1324. Bringing in and harboring certain aliens ]

Under (a) Criminal penalties (1)
(A) Any person who—
(iv) “encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law; or (v)
(I) engages in any conspiracy to commit any of the preceding acts, or
(II) aids or abets the commission of any of the preceding acts,
shall be punished as provided in subparagraph (B)…”

Governor Brown’s Trust Act designates every municipality and county in California a sanctuary city. And every authority that positions itself in harmony with that law “is rebelling against what God has instituted” in our US Constitution, “and they will be punished.”

Can We Turn Our Country Around?

2016 Presidential candidate Ted Cruz, “We can turn our country around but only if the body of Christ rises up.

In an interview with The Brody File in Iowa, Ted Cruz implores conservative Christian voters to take back America by exercising their right to vote. “There are 90 million evangelical Christians in the United States, it’s about 30 percent of our population,” Cruz says. “In the last election 54 million evangelical Christians stayed home. If Christians will simply show up and vote our values, we’ll turn this country around.” Cruz continues: “We can turn our country around but only if the body of Christ rises up.” As for pastors, he has a word for them too and it comes through his father Rafael Cruz who is a pastor himself. “The message my father conveys to pastors is that we have too many pastors hiding behind the pulpit who are afraid to preach the word of God, who are afraid to say to Christians, we have a scriptural obligation to be salt in the light, we have a scriptural obligation to be watchmen on the wall, and every one of us has a responsibility to be engaged in our public life, voting our values.”

Cruz has to be one of the most elegant speakers on the issue that has come along in quite some time. He seems to have the right mix of biblical values, oratory skills and fighting passion to ignite a movement. But Christians have to do their part.

California, The Great Sanctuary State

“The law has been used to destroy its own objective: It has been applied to annihilating the justice that it was supposed to maintain; to limiting and destroying [Natural] Rights which its real purpose was to respect.” (Federic Bastiat, French statesman of 1848)

If you are wondering why so many from the California State Legislature have remained silent regarding the shooting in San Francisco that claimed the life of Kate Steinle; maybe it is because they passed a law that allowed the string of events that caused the shooting.

The California State legislature, by passing AB-4, also known as the TRUST ACT, made a California State Law that said local jurisdictions did not have to cooperate with federal officials in instances regarding immigration.
http://gamechangerpac.com/ca-lawmakers-pass-a-law-to-make-ca-a-sanctuary-state/

How could such an arrogant maneuver by California State legislators’ go unchecked, while the State of Arizona, when it too tried to implement it’s own legislation on immigration enforcement that mirrored federal law, was knocked down by the Federal Courts back in 2011?

THE ARIZONA ET AL. v. UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE NINTH CIRCUIT RULED:

1. “Federal law specifies categories of aliens who are ineligible to be admitted to the United States, under 8 U. S. C. §1182; and specifies which aliens may be removed and the procedures for doing so–under 8 U. S. C §1227.
http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2012/images/06/25/scotus.arizona.pdf

And under INA sec. 237(a) (2) Criminal Offenses, (A) General Crimes; (iii) Aggravated felony; “any alien who is convicted of an aggravated felony at any time after admission is deportable.”
http://www.avvo.com/legal-guides/ugc/what-is-an-aggravated-felony-for-immigration-purposes

The Federal Government’s broad, power over immigration and alien status which rests, in part, on its Constitutional power to “establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization,” Art. I, §8, cl. 4, it seems has been hijacked by the California legislature and Governor.

It is right that ALL California civil authorities who DO NOT comply with the federal immigration deportation laws mentioned, ought to be held liable to some degree for the crimes being committed by illegal aliens on innocent American citizens, and their legal immigrant neighbors living within the communities. I wouldn’t hold my breath with this bureaucracy however, as the great Proverb of chapter 29:7 proves true which states:

“The [consistently] righteous man knows and cares for the rights of the poor, but the wicked man has no interest in such knowledge.” Amplified Bible (AMP)

When Gov’t Abandons It’s Constituted Role

“For the mystery of lawlessness (that hidden principle of rebellion against constituted authority) is already at work in the world, [but it is] restrained only until [c]he who restrains is taken out of the way.”
2 Thessalonians 2:7, Amplified Bible

Dear Christians, and Fellow Patriots:

Such a time is the present day, and such a society is our society – a lawless time and a lawless society. The Government itself, God’s servant–“instituted among men to secure it’s citizen’s Inalienable Rights of Life, Liberty and Property, and rule by [His] law, has itself become guilty of lawlessness. The duty of Government is to punish evildoers and protect and reward those who do well; thus, maintain order in society. (Rom 13:1-7, 1 Tim 1:8-11)

We now see the state abandoning this Fundamental role with ruinous consequences for the country, and intruding itself into areas of the life of its citizens where it has no business whatsoever.

Yet, let us resist lawlessness in the way that the “Spirit of Truth” teach us (Titus 2:11-12) concerning lawlessness. We are admonished by our Lord to stand in antithetical opposition to this lawless world, as people who regard and keep the law of God, that is, as people who love the Lord their God with all their heart and mind and soul and strength and their neighbor as themselves…”

Is Gay Marriage Really The Law Of The Land?

Justice Antonin Scalia chastised the Supreme Court’s landmark decision to legalize same-sex marriage on Friday as an affront to the principle of democratic rule.

He argued that: “This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine…robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves.”
http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/scalia-gay-marriage-decision-shows-court-is-americas-ruler/ar-AAcaHNF?ocid=ansHill11

More than 50-years ago Dr. Martin Luther King defended the transcendent source of the law’s authority for self-government written in the Declaration of Independence. From a jail cell, King wrote in a letter that “the code of justice is not man’s law; It is God’s law.”

Dr. King built his whole case for the civil right of self-government on the argument, set forth by St. Augustine and Thomas Aquinas, that:

“An unjust law is no law at all.” To be just, King argued, our laws must always reflect God’s Law–or as the Declaration of Independence affirms–“the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.”

This is the great issue today that needs to be discussed in the public square: Is the law rooted in truth? Is it transcendent, immutable, and morally binding? Or is it, as the liberal activist judges on the Supreme Court have suggested, simply what courts say it is? Do we discover the law, or do we create it as we go?

If we the American People fail to acknowledge, understand and defend the transcendent Principle of Natural Law in the Declaration of Independence as the moral source of authority for limited Constitutional self-government, we will in essence be “reassigning” the rights that “the Creator” has assigned equally to all men, from Inalienable, to Alienable–meaning-subject to every dictator’s whim; regardless of color, gender, or sexual preference.
