TEXAS VS HOMELAND SECURITY

The brewing troubles among American states has cranked up another notch again, according to this story spotted and shared by B. And not surprisingly, Texas is at the center of it.

But first, a little contextual review.

For some time, if you've been watching the American states, there has been a quiet, but growing, "pushback" against federal government overreach.  Some American states, for example, have passed "constitutional money" resolutions, recognizing bullion and bullion coins as legal tender. Texas went much further just a couple of years ago, and created its own state bullion depository. More recently, a legislator in South Carolina prepared a bill that that state would recognize all bullion coins as legal tender. Utah followed Texas, and created its own version of a bullion depository and went further, even starting a private bullion backed currency which it promptly started to market... in Hong Kong. Missouri, even more recently, is considering a kind of "preemptive federal nullification"  law, forbidding any state official or law enforcement officer from enforcing any federal law in violation of the U.S. constitution, a measure primarily designed to protect 2nd amendment rights, but I strongly also suspect designed to protect first amendment rights. Then, of course, we've seen the story of Texas Governor Abbot trying to woo the NASDAQ exchange's data centers from New York and New Jersey to Texas, along with "other exchanges."

In that context, consider this article shared by B., a letter from the attorney general of Texas to the Department of Homeland Security, or as we like to call it here, the Reichsicherheithaupamt, in response to recent moves by the new federal administration:

Response to DHS’s Unlaw­ful Pause on Removals

Mr. Paxton pulls no punches:

Dear Mr. Pekoske:

Yesterday you ordered a blanket halt on nearly all deportations of illegal aliens. This complete abdication of the Department of Homeland Security’s (“DHS”) obligation to enforce federal immigration law is unlawful and will seriously and irreparably harm the State of Texas and its citizens.

Specifically, your memorandum directed DHS to impose “an immediate pause on removals of any noncitizen with a final order of removal [subject to limited exceptions] for 100 days to go into effect as soon as practical and no later than January 22, 2021.”1 Should such a directive be legal or left unchallenged, DHS could attempt to renew that directive indefinitely or issue a similar directive for an even longer period of time. That would allow the Biden Administration to grant blanket amnesty to the vast majority of the illegal aliens in this country with the stroke of a pen and without congressional approval.

Border states like Texas pay a particularly high price when the federal government fails to faithfully execute our country’s immigration laws. Your attempted halt on almost all deportations would increase the cost to Texas caused by illegal immigration. DHS itself has previously acknowledged that such a “pause on . . . removals” will cause “concrete injuries to Texas.” See Agreement between Department of Homeland Security and the State of Texas (“Agreement”) § 2.

As a result of that particularized interest in the effective operation of our immigration system, Texas has agreed to cooperate with the federal government in its execution of immigration enforcement. See Agreement. Your attempt to halt deportations violates our Agreement in multiple ways.

...

This letter serves as notice that Texas believes DHS has violated the Agreement; it is not a comprehensive list of the many legal defects in your memorandum. See Agreement § 8. Texas would like to resolve this dispute, but you must immediately rescind the January 20 Memorandum. DHS’s failure to provide Texas with pre- implementation notice of the memorandum—combined with its quick implementation of the memorandum—makes waiting impracticable. We require an immediate response or we will seek relief to enjoin your order, as contemplated by the Agreement. Agreement § 6.

Best regards,

Ken Paxton
Attorney General of Texas

And there you have it. The response, I suspect, from fedgov.inc and its "courts" will be to ignore the whole thing. Texas, you'll recall, file suit concerning abnormalities in the last election, which suit was promptly dismissed by the Supreme Tribunal (one hesitates to call it a court any more), on the grounds that the State of Texas had no standing before the tribunal, a move which I predicted it would make. The other response, I suspect, will come in the form of other states joining in the pushback against more overreach. These too, I suspect, regardless of the form they take, will be ignored or shoved aside.

One thing that won't be shoved aside is the continued corporate exodus from states such as New York or California, an exodus which has already benefitted Texas and Florida.

So what's the bottom line? The pattern is clear: overreach from fedgov.inc, state push back, a federal system no longer even pretending to represent the best interests of the states, or their peoples... you get the idea. And the bottom line is that the United States are in deep trouble (and yes, the return to pre-Lincoln usage is deliberate).

See you on the flip side...

  1. the Biden administration has to restack the Supreme Court or our new dictator may find himself encountering legal pushback.
    I am disappointed at the lack of legal challenges to government oppression, maybe I am just impatient but it troubles me that NOBODY on the world (or national) has issued a serious challenge to:
    1. total invalidity of PCR tests
    2. the fact that the deadly virus kills very old and sick people and practically nobody else
    3. the fact that death statistics show 2020 to have been a normal, average year for deaths – excepting that the only cause of death was the virus, everything else has disappeared
    Maybe I am just impatient but I am getting really really tired of the propaganda and everybody around me is just resigned to accepting / tacitly approving the situation.
    The people who haven’t been thoroughly screwed yet haven’t figured out that they are next.
    What’s a mother to do?

  2. “Government overreach,” is far too vague a phrase to use for what seems to be more like bureaucratic, K Street lobbying, Wall Street speculators, and psychopathic hegemon want-to-bee’s under the guise of a somehow elected member nationally and locally.

    The State of Texas judge did block a President Biden freeze on deportations recently. Not all sense has left the judicial systems.

  3. Ran across this a few minutes ago. Not related? Kind of related ? Surprising either way. Trying to put patterns to Creepy Sleepy Joe’s executive order spree. So far it seems intent on crushing every union job hard. This one is odd in that it’s the first thing I have seen his admin do that I like. The rest is abomination. Private prisons is a nightmare. Curious how it is that the Creepster is the one to take em down? Or is this a prep for re-education camps?

    1. Yes, I saw Biden address private prisons… They aren’t going away. Their mission is changing? Can we guess what mission that will be? I have my guess.

  4. CAF stated a long time ago that the goal of all these psyops is to coerce the citizens into dismantling the fed and thereby give up claim on all debts owed to the people by that fed gov. say goodbye to benefits from the federal government for everyone regardless how many decades we may have paid into the system. Social security? Medicare? Medicaid? Curious what that does to the military. And their benefits? She also predicted a push for a constitutional convention that would allow large predator class corporations to reorganize and syphon all the wealth all the more quickly from every state.

    1. Yes. Those same thoughts have me wondering, too. That is the name of the real game. If they can steal this much money, why not steal an election to seal their theft?

  5. Well, it time for the USA to join the balkanization rumba which been the fashion in Europe since the fall of the Roman Empire. The Holy Empire stab in the back, Austro-Hungary stab in back Yugoslavia stab in the back Checkoslavia stab in the back. Germany turned into a shooting gallery for centuries. Who are the shadow masters profiting from all this chaos? Well, we live in a country where the constitution and other important documents at not taught in the schools, to begin with, doesn’t seem strange.

  6. For the record, I started to write a longer response but held my peace because much of that has already been said. What I find curious about the last 18 months is that Trump, the “Republican” did not act in a Lincolnian fashion with respect to governance, but the fledgling Biden administration is looking more like a Marxist fascist regime based on that Lincolnian blue-print for managing a “civil war”, then leaving it to a politburo to engage in a “reconstruction” effort to reform the nation in a new way. With states now shaking themselves and trying to decide how best to proceed, it might serve us all to review the history of this period very carefully with a jaundiced eye to uncover what really happened. I’m alarmed that the recent spate of attempts to remove Confederate iconography in public places is a pre-emptive attack to prevent people from looking at the political and economic arguments of critics against the “new order” because there might be useful arguments against them. I’m also alarmed that the spread of Marxist ideologies actually reached these shores near this same period in our history and began to take root within certain intellectual circles and in powerful families with great industrial influence, who would have seized upon the ideology as a mechanism for building financial empires and more sophisticated forms of social engineering. Having walked off the cliff without a parachute I now find myself lifted up by the tender hands of gravity and fall patiently toward my eventual fate.

    1. Wall Street did several governmental experiments in the USSR
      and Nazi Germany to see which system gave them more power/control.
      Now they’re mixing & matching…
      w/the added mind-control technologies and pharmaceuticals.

      But, as Mark Twain is once alleged to have said,
      “It ain’t what you know that gets you into trouble,
      it’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.”

  7. Frame:
    The Alamo is fighting off both Nazis and/or Stalinists
    and don’t forget The International ever-morphing Medical Stassi.

    The United States are remembering their roots
    by practicing freedoms written in The of The Declaration of Independence
    [usurped by the Constitution of after thoughts].

    Homeland,
    aka Fatherland[term used in Nazi Germany to unite the country].

    Just started reading the Texas letter!
    Bravo!
    Remember the Alamo!

    I’m late…

    1. Met a lot of resistance to the “new normal” while out and about today.

      Where was I? Oh yea. The letter.
      Looks like George Soros is in charge of the USSA immigration policies.
      I hear Europe is exploding with the Soros plans to destroy the nation states and their cultures. Now the USSA those Soros crosshairs as well.
      All for our mental heath and safety of course.
      The question is what template the Federal Shadow Government use? Fascism, Stalinism, Medical Stassi; or simply all the above, at once?

      “They’re” not interest in a more perfect union.
      They’re interested in themselves and…
      how much more power they can force upon the cowering sheeple.

      But, those pesky people are starting to act like their rebellious ancestors yearning for rights of man; life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

      Under God.
      Not the authoritarian State.

  9. Given everything that has happened over the last four years, Mr Paxton’s faith in the courts is somewhat perplexing. On the other hand, how does one obtain relief in a tyranny?

    1. That is easily done, by making a sharp distinction, between lawful and legal. Latter depends on ambiguous linguistic translation.

      Abraham is always lawful – by default – whereas papal pretender is only a legal technicality, a footnote to history.

      When secularizing Abraham, one immediately does away with papal filioque, since latter has subsequently no standing.

      When Yahweh is proven to be Year, unambiguously, then calendar science becomes equivalent to prophecy.

      1. From a European perspective, the final amendment will always be a Zippo lighter, torching the document.

        Because all these founding pieces of papers depend on legality of monarchies, that have no lawful standing.

        American position is legality, by opposing legality of monarchies, and that is technicality upon technicality.

        Fundamental law did never apply, and therefore Swampington’s superstructure is null and void.

        1. Fundamental law is Abraham’s oath, sworn, NOT by ruler, NOT by country, and NOT by a piece of cloth on a stick.

          Abraham’s oath was sworn, by an abstract and incorruptible principle, the YEAR, unseen, and yet known to all.

          Abraham’s oath – as “prime directive” – has been forgotten through centuries, and has been persecuted as heathen.

          Any oath sworn, to anything other than the “prime directive”, is idolatry.

    2. One only obtains relief from tyranny by not being in it.

      Paxton may just be posturing, but I suspect he may be serious. If a state is going to officially or unofficially break with the central government, it has to first put on the public record its reasons for doing so.
