In a recent live broadcast, Peggy at TheHealthyAmerican.org shared a ton of excellent information on our civil rights and legal rights.
Especially at a time when we are being subjected to health “orders” that have absolutely no law or authority backing them up, it is important that we all understand our rights and what the law actually states.
Learn why these health “orders” are not lawful.
Below is a transcription of Peggy’s broadcast. I recommend watching the broadcast above as well above.
Who has the authority to tell us to stay home? To say that you are not essential or I am not essential? That you cannot go to work or I cannot go to work?
Well, as it turns out, no one has that authority.
No governor can make a law, no mayor can make a law, no health officer can make a law. These health orders must be issued under a certain type of authority – and even those laws are invalid and illegitimate if they violate our rights that are protected by the Constitution.
The Constitution doesn’t give you rights. You are born with God-given inherent rights. In some writings, it’s called your natural rights or birthright.
A right is something that cannot be taken from you.
You have the right to life. Life requires oxygen. Therefore, no law that requires you to restrict your oxygen is lawful.
Now they may have written it up and even passed it by your country government. But they are not lawful, so how can you fight it? That’s what we’re going to talk about.
The Constitution is a contract between “we the people” and the government. We are the People. We are the public. So think about our form of government – it’s called a Re-Public. A republic, “of the people”. It’s a constitutional republic. There is a contract between those that govern us and “we the people” – and they need to abide by that contract.
That contract doesn’t give us rights. That contract limits, defines and protects the government from taking those God-given rights from us. The Constitution protects our rights.
We have Constitutionally-guaranteed rights. We have rights that may not be taken from us without due process of law.
Nothing can be taken from you without due process of law.
Due process of law means that you have had your charges explained to you, you’ve had a chance to face your accusers, you had a jury trial, and you can appeal that decision if you don’t agree with it.
So that (the Judicial branch) is one of the branches of government.
There are three co-equal branches of government.
The Constitutional contract between “we the people” and the government describes and defines our limited form of governance, how they can control us.
Because “to govern” means “to control”. And “mind” is the same word as “ment”. So government means “to control your mind”. How do you like that?
That’s why we need limits on what the government can do. That’s where the Constitution comes into play.
The Legislative branch of government is the law making body in the United States. And that is our Congress and Senate. And in your state, you also have a State Senate and Assembly. Most of the states have a legislative body made up of two bodies: the Lower House (aka Assembly) and the Upper House (aka Senate).
There, an idea is introduced into the two houses in the form of a bill. And the bill describes the proposed law. And the bill goes to a committee and they debate on it. And “We the People” get to give our input into it.
Those bills must be published so that we can see what’s going on.
The Lower House can pass a bill for a proposed law. Then it has to go to the Senate. Then it goes to the Givernor who can approve, veto or delay the bill from becoming law.
The Legislative body can override a veto with 2/3 vote of the legislature.
The point is, no governor can make a law. No President can make a law.
We have a legislative body in the federal government and in each state.
The Federal Government activities only apply to the Federal Government, not to the states.
Your own state is a sovereign state. It makes its own laws. It abides by its own laws.
The speed limit in Nebraska is different than the speed limit in California. The driving age in Oregon is different than the driving age in Texas – well, they may be the same but the point is that each state makes its own laws.
Each state makes its own laws regarding education, driving, professional licensing and so many things belong to the states.
The only thing the Federal Government has to do with you is that they take your money in the form of federal taxes, they provide for defense, they create transportation and they have a few other constitutional activities. But most of what they’re doing is a complete coloring outside of the lines.
There was nothing in the Constitution to create a U.S. Department of Education or Homeland Security.
The Legislative body makes the laws. Period.
We have the Judiciary branch which is the courts, the judges, the law enforcement, the sheriffs, prisons, jails, corrections. California has the largest prison system in the United States.
The Constitution is the supreme law of the land. No laws are valid that violate our constitutional protections. Period.
There is no clause in the U.S. Constitution that says, “except for a pandemic”. This is exactly why the Constitution exists – it is for times like this so we are protected from the lawmakers (lawbreakers) trampling on our rights.
The Executive branch of government is your mayor, your governor or the President.
The Legislative branch is your city council, your county or board of supervisors or board of commissioners. And you have your State Legislative body that passes the laws. And we’ve got the Federal Legislative body which is the Congress or the Senate.
When these bills are introduced, it is up to us to read them and give our opinions before they are signed into law. Look up the “legislative review” for your state to see which bills are introduced.
A State law is a statute.
The U.S. Bill of Rights
The Constitution does not delineate all our rights, so there was a second document created called a Bill of Rights. And the Bill of Rights are the Constitutional amendments. These are some of our most important rights. The Founding Fathers of the United States realized that they needed to write these rights down so that the government they were creating did not trample on these rights.
You have the right to life. Life requires oxygen. Therefore, you have the right to oxygen. Therefore, no law, order, edict, guideline, protocol, policy, resolution, proclamation, none of these are valid if they seek to restrict your breathing.
None of those laws are valid if they tell you, “this is how much you’re allowed to earn”, “this is when you can stay open”, “how many people you can have inside”. That is stealing your property without due process of law.
A law is not valid if it violates our rights.
These laws below were passed in 1964 to amplify the rights we were each born with, saying that we are all born equal. A business cannot discriminate against someone else because of the color of their skin, age, gender, ethnicity, medical condition or religion. Print out this card here.
These laws protect you to be served by a business without discrimination:
You have the right to enter these stores and breathe freely. Period. You don’t even need a medical exemption, religious exemption, a medical disability. You have the right to breathe. Period.
We need to educate law enforcement and these businesses, schools, medical facilities, employers, transportation and others on all of this.
No one can say that you are a threat to their business just because you don’t have your face covered. That would be like you entering into a store and every patron being handcuffed and the store owner says, “well, we decided to handcuff everybody because you might shoplift.”
This is not legal.
There is no law that requires a person to wear a mask.
And you cannot require anyone to wear a mask. You do not have the power or authority over another person to tell them to wear a mask, which covers their only two air passages for breathing. It is illegal to force someone to obstruct their breathing. That is a type of attempted suffocation, and it is illegal conduct, because it harms another person.
These health orders they are trying to tell you are laws are unlawful. If it was a law, it would have a code of law attached to it.
Let’s talk about Executive Orders.
Everything other than transportation, commerce, defense, and a way of raising money for the federal government – aside from those things, everything else is left to the states. So your own state is sovereign.
So, the President’s range of authority is very limited.
The President oversees the Executive Branch of government. The President has a Cabinet and oversees the federal government, the Armed Forces, the Department of Commerce, Department of Transportation, Department of Education.
But the Federal Department of Education has no authority in your state unless the state offers for that help to come in. And why do they do it? Money!
I’m not going to call it a bribe but that’s what comes to mind. So the Federal Government says, “we’ll give you money if you adapt and do what we’re asking you to do”. That’s the only authority they have for that.
There is no authority for a President to tell you what to do – unless you work for the federal government.
You do not need to wear a mask in the post office and they cannot refuse you. It is not required.
Guidelines and guidance are not laws.
The only thing that is a law is a statutory law that was created in your legislative body.
In your state, the governor can and does have the authority to issue an executive order. And that executive order only applies to the executive branch of government. So if you work for a public school, you are affected by that because you’re a state employee.
If you have a professional license that is regulated by the state, you must read the regulations that govern that license. Health orders are not regulations.
Unless you work for the federal government or state government, the executive orders have nothing to do with you.
