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.”
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.”
* The Case for Jeff Sessions
Barack Obama’s Justice Department is out of control. America needs an attorney general who will enforce the law.
* It’s Still a Mad, Mad California
Victor Davis Hanson
Coastal elites set rules for others, exempt themselves, and tolerate rampant lawlessness from illegal aliens.
* Trump expected to take on 482 sanctuary cities… In California alone
