HAMMOND RANCH: JURISDICTION IS THE STORY!

by Kirk MacKenzie | Citizens News Wire | January 5, 2016

Wrong Focus

Coverage of the Hammond Ranch situation is an example of why we don’t win. Nearly all coverage is focused on the wrong thing—the situation and its specific concerns, rather than the global issue! We can do better than People Magazine! Ammon and the others are there to bring focus on the issue, not on themselves. If we don’t do that, we all lose.

JURISDICTION is the story!

The Constitution created a government of limited scope. It was fenced in. The name of that fence is “Jurisdiction”. The federal government only has legislative, judicial, and executive powers within its Jurisdiction. The fight to limit federal overreach is synonymous with the fight over Jurisdiction. It is fruitless to fight the first without supporting the second.

The Opportunity

If there ever was one, this is the time—the opportunity—to unite the movement and fight federal overreach by shouting JURISDICTION from the “rooftops”—in every email, Facebook posting, Tweet, blog, and website. I encourage everyone and every organization to do just that!

If you don’t understand Jurisdiction, study the DRA Jurisdiction page and my Jurisdiction white paper, or any other source you choose.

If you do understand Jurisdiction, now is the time to educate everyone else.

Quick Facts

The only legislative authority or ownership the federal government has over land is spelled out in Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution, repeated below.

“The Congress shall have power to … exercise exclusive legislation in all cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten miles square) as may, by cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings.”―Article I, Section 8, Clause 17

The federal government is only permitted to own and exercise exclusive legislative authority over Washington D.C. and lands acquired from the states (called federal enclaves), in accordance with stated procedure, and only for enumerated defense purposes.

That’s it!

No other clause in the Constitution gives the federal government right to own or legislate over any other land. Where there is no legislative authority, there is no jurisdiction. The Constitution has never been amended to expand that authority.

In what I consider to be a corrupt decision, the Supreme Court decided the federal government could acquire lands outside the Constitution. Corrupt or not, it is crucial to understand that in so doing, the Court declared that in this circumstance the federal government acted in the capacity as any other buyer. It did not acquire any legislative authority or jurisdiction over the lands thus purchased. It obtained only a “proprietorial interest“, i.e., the interest of a proprietor, an owner, not the authority of a government.

Jurisdiction remains with the states! By not exercising this jurisdiction or stepping in in defense of their citizens, “our” state and local governments are selling us out.

Our Objectives

Train and unite every one and every organization on Jurisdiction.

Get that story out.

Take control of local and state governments. Focus the majority of political efforts on this objective, especially in Rural America where we have the best chance of making a difference. The federal government is beyond hope.
