The FBI and DOJ are not independent entities

The powers of the Legislative and Executive Branches are enumerated in, and delegated by, the United States Constitution. Those Branches cannot makeup or contrive additional powers. Why is this so? The Tenth Amendment clearly answered that question 226 years ago. And, it has not changed. Here is the text of the Tenth Amendment:

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

The Constitution does not delegate to the United States the power to create “independent” entities. (See the U.S. Const.)  Indeed, such a power could create entities that would destroy our government.

Because there are no “independent” governmental entities, each such entity is subject to oversight, i.e., it answers to a superior. That includes Intelligence Agencies, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Department of Justice (DOJ), and an “Independent” or Special Counsel. Special Counsel Robert Mueller is not free to do as he wishes. Here is why.

The Executive Branch, headed by President Donald J. Trump, is in charge of the FBI and DOJ. President Trump is the chief law enforcement officer of the nation. (U.S. Const., art II.) Congress has the obligation of overseeing the Executive Branch. (U.S. Const., art. I.) It is also true that the FBI is subordinate to the DOJ headed up by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Conclusion. President Trump, Attorney General Sessions, and Congress have the Constitutional power to oversee Special Counsel Mueller, fire him and his team, and to investigate the investigators if that is deemed necessary.

Closing thought: America has a great system of government but it only works when we Americans do our part. We must be active participants to protect our freedom.  Our Constitutional Republic relies on its people, not on politicians. If we do not oversee our politicians, they will destroy America.

  1. Nullification – Principles of ’98 – Kentucky Virginia Resolution of 1798

    In 1958 SCOTUS Decision (Cooper Vs. Aaron) Says; the States cannot change or ignore a Decision of the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court has taken itself way too seriously from nearly the beginning of our Federal Republic, granting themselves powers not enumerated by the Constitution – Marbury Vs Madison in 1802 granted themselves the power of Judiciary Review. Judiciary Review makes their Decisions – interpretations of the Constitution – the FINAL interpretation of the Constitution and has turned the Supreme Court into a Tyrant Oligarch. They continued in 1958 with Cooper Vs. Aaron are paraphrased above. In addition, the 14th Amendment (which includes the Due Process Clause) was interrupted by Justices – Particularly Hugo Black – as the Incorporation Doctrine that finally applied ALL of the Bill of rights to the States further subjugating the status of the States as beneath the Federal Government. All of this goes to the Laws of Political Physics in which one must recognize that ALL governments seek to empower themselves to the extent that they control EVERYTHING!

    All one needs to do is read the Preamble of the Constitution which establishes the entire purpose of the Constitution to understand that what we have today no where near matches the intention of that document. First line of the Constitution says “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union…” and the Second sentence of the Declaration of Independence says; governments are instituted among Men (human beings – PEOPLE!), deriving their JUST powers from the CONSENT of the Governed! In addition to the 10th Amendment as quoted in the above article we then have the Kentucky Virginia Resolution of 1798 which says the States have the Right and authority to not only determine the Constitutionality – the Right to interpret the Constitution – but can also ignore any law of the Federal Government which is found not to be in compliances there of. The dirty word which I LOVE is call Nullification!

    States Nullification is 219 years old and NEVER talked about among political pinheads!

    The Federal Government has long believed it can do whatever it wants – and there are snakes called congressmen and bureaucrats who – using a mis interpretation of the Supremacy Clause (Article VI, Section 2) which says; “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwith-standing.

    They ignore the key words, made in Pursuance thereof (THIS CONSTITUTION which LIMITS their power). The Supreme Law of the land is NOT the Federal Government but the Constitution of the united States.

    We the people have been ignorant and neglectful. Nullification is NOT a dirty word – it is the Rule of the land which helps keep the laws of Political physics under conrtrol!. It is our DUTY to Nullify unconstitutional laws!

    Ultimately NONE of the Bureaucracies where Authorized by the Constitution. Technically the FBI and all the other alphabet soup agencies are ILLEGAL! There is no mandate in the Constitution for ANY National Police force nor any right enumerated to give the Federal Government the right to bear Arms. Even the temporary military was established under authority of the States (Article I , Section 8)! The only perpetual exception was the United States NAVY!

    When are we going to put the Federal Government in its proper place?!?!?!

    Any doubts? Look up all these documents and see for yourself.
