US Federal Government Constitutional Infractions
by Bernard Baruch Carman
Besides not working, the "bailouts" & "stimulus plans" are also illegal! there is no provision in the US Constitution for giving public funding to corporate and private interests.
Did you know that leading up to the Declaration of Independence, the founding fathers had been enacting a 'Redress of Grievances' clause within the Magna Carta? Here is an excerpt from the 1215AD document:
 ... any one of our servants offend in any way against anyone or transgress any of the articles of the peace or the security and the offence be notified to four of the aforesaid twenty-five barons, those four barons shall come to us, or to our justiciar if we are out of the kingdom, and, laying the transgression before us, shall petition us to have that transgression corrected without delay. And if we do not correct the transgression, or if we are out of the kingdom, if our justiciar does not correct it, within forty days, reckoning from the time it was brought to our notice or to that of our justiciar if we were out of the kingdom, the aforesaid four barons shall refer that case to the rest of the twenty-five barons and those twenty-five barons together with the community of the whole land shall distrain and distress us in every way they can, namely, by seizing castles, lands, possessions, and in such other ways as they can, saving our person and the persons of our queen and our children, until, in their opinion, amends have been made; and when amends have been made, they shall obey us as they did before.
Did you know our US Constitution also has an Accountability Clause in the First Amendment? it's also known as the "forgotten clause", but Americans are just beginning to remember. Here it is:
"... and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
This part of the First Amendment is known as the "Accountability Clause", by which We the People can legally and peacefully demand accountability, and redress (remedy) of grievances (oppression) from a corrupted governing authority. This clause is also known as the "forgotten clause".
The founding fathers knew that it was possible for the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of government to someday begin to fail in their duty to uphold the Constitution and protect people's liberties by violating unalienable rights without cause.
They desired a process by which, should the election system become corrupted, the people could peacefully demand justice and accountability. Thus, the Accountability Clause of the First Amendment, was included and ratified into law... and it stands until this day, albeit largely forgotten.
Regarding this Accountability Clause, in an act of the Continental Congress in 1774 the founding fathers said:
"...If money is wanted by Rulers who have in any manner oppressed the People, [the People] may retain [their money] until their grievances are redressed, and thus peaceably procure relief, without trusting to despised petitions or disturbing the public tranquility."
History proves that the unalienable right of a free people to petition their governing authorities for redress of grievances and oppression is completely moot unless there is a method by which redress of said grievances and oppression can be accomplished.
The American founders made it perfectly clear that this peaceful method of holding a oppressive government accountable is to simply withhold any and all monies claimed to be owed by the people being oppressed to the oppressing governing authority, thus removing support of a runaway tyrannical government.
For more information about the details of Federal Government Constitutional infractions, and We the People's Right to Petition for Redress of Grievances as guaranteed by the Accountability Clause of the First Amendment, listen to this 80 minutes audio presentation by Bob Schulz of We the People:
Continental Congress 2009 Promotional Tour with Bob Schulz of We the People, recorded in Asheville, NC on Thursday, Jan 29 (80 minute audio file). It covers the history of our unalienable Right to Petition for Redress of Grievances as guaranteed by the Accountability Clause of the First Amendment, the recent lawsuits including the failure of Federal Government response in all three branches, and the apparent need for a CC2009 to determine a strategy to mandate a Constitutionally limited government accountable to the rule of law.
