The Latest Red Herring Argument
The scam artist’s goal is always to create some kind of confusion, and then to profit from it in some way.
It could be to confuse your identity literally, so as to steal it. (No, your Honor, that’s John M. Doe, he’s a British Citizen, not John M. Doe, the noted American national.)
It could be to confuse the capacity in which you are acting, so as to bring false accusations against you. (But your Honor, he’s a licensed Commercial Vehicle Driver, not a private man merely going to the grocery store.)
It could be simply to confuse the public, and so delay action on pressing matters of state. (We don’t really know what color the sky is….sometimes it’s blue, but sometimes it’s grey or white or even black and we don’t know what to do as a result. Best to sit on it and wait.)
The modus operandi is always the same: create a confusion or problem, and then steer toward whatever result you want to come out of that confusion or problem.
Here is a good case in point.
Recently, in patriot circles, there has been a debate introduced about “enumerated” and “non-enumerated” powers. This is because the Constitutions delegated nineteen enumerated powers to the federal government.
The word “enumerated” — then as now — simply means “numbered”. We numbered the powers granted and described them in detail so that there could be no mistake on the part of the federal government at any level regarding the set limits of their activities and authorities.
The confusion being introduced is between “delegated” and “non-delegated” and “enumerated” and “non-enumerated” powers.
So let’s cut to the chase: All powers mentioned in the Constitutions are delegated powers whether enumerated or non-enumerated.
All powers that are enumerated are powers delegated to the Federal Government.
All powers that are non-enumerated are not delegated to the Federal Government and are reserved and retained by the States and People per Amendment X.
Think of it this way — If you are creating a business plan and organizational chart to run a dog kennel, you have no reason to mention cat care.
It is the same way with the Constitutions.
These documents are creating an organization to exercise the delegated and also strictly enumerated powers entrusted to the three branches of the Federal Government—Federal, Territorial, and Municipal.
They barely mention the non-delegated and also non-enumerated powers of the States and The United States of America because those topics are outside the scope of the Constitutions.
Those are all cat care issues that are the responsibility of the States and the People.
The rest is easy.
If we did not specifically delegate a power to the Federal Government, say, the “power” to wash our socks, then we may safely assume that it’s no business of the Federal Government’s, and we are not under contract to accept (and pay for) their sock washing services, even though such sock washing services may exist and may be offered.
The proper way to think of the Federal Government –whether Federal, Territorial, or Municipal – is as a group of three foreign subcontractors, each with different responsibilities.
The actual Federal Government was supposed to handle mutual defense, proper coinage, international trade relations, etc.
The Territorial Government was responsible for management of Territories until such time as they became States of the Union.
The Municipal Government was supposed to run the District of Columbia as a common meeting ground for all the States
All worked well until the Civil War came along, and that illegal commercial conflict allowed an evil and surreptitious change in the structure and functioning of the Federal Government.
Quite simply, the British Territorial Government crept in under color of law and darkness, and substituted itself for the Federal Government we are owed.
We have the complete history of this process showing how Territorial States of States imposed upon the people to create and adopt “new” state constitutions in the wake of the Civil War.
Unknown and undisclosed to the people, these were not rewrites of the constitutions in effect prior to the war, but instead were completely new “States of States” —- Territorial States of States — usurping the position of the original lawfully designated Federal States of States.
