From Rio to Paris, Constitution that Was and Is
This week has seen the sad testimony of a self-admittedly “weak man”, Mr. Comey. One of the sickest commentaries I’ve heard from someone who is suppose to be the epitome of the justice department. I have fired employees for less but deception and excuses as what Comey represented would be grounds for immediately being walked out the door. But, that is not what this weeks program is about.
Not only was I updating my lecture presentation for the coming Tuesday at the Geauga County TEA Party meeting but I became engaged in a Facebook conversation on the Liberty Radio Networks FB page. This conversation was related to a post about exiting the Paris Accord and that we have not really exited it. Well, the answer is ‘Yes’ and ‘No’. I don’t get into the details of the exit but the larger conversation regarding the Constitutionality of the Accord in the first place.
The simple answer is… drum roll…… It was Constitutional! What that brings us to is that the Constitution in and of itself is what everyone pulls from their pockets only to the extent that Article VI is not fully considered. Even more so, the treaty clause is extended to ‘International Executive Agreements’ but not requiring Senate ratification. So I’m going to take you down the path as far as I can go in the program. If you want to get the full understanding well, you will have to schedule me in to speak at one of your functions.
In all of this we have those that are not concerned with the Constitution so remember that People are Policy and we need to develop our youth into policy makers with Foundational Principles and Ethics so please contribute to. SACPS org
With that – The Founders wanted us to gain knowledge and get involved! Being a Citizen is an Active involvement in our political life! Let’s get our feet on the street for this time is critical!
Join me on today’s program to value the Founders perspective of the mirrors of history and the reality of the present.
And because you keep asking!
