Plain Logic: Constitutional Law and Executive Orders

by Rusdon Ray, president of The Defenders of Liberty

Recently, The President of the United States signed 23 Executive Actions. We were told by the media and thought and believed leading up to the signing, that it was all in relation to gun control or the Second Amendment. We were naive. The President and his cabinet not only violated the Second Amendment but also the First Amendment regarding additional requirements on religion, the Fourth Amendment regarding unwarranted and unreasonable searches and seizures, and the Fifth Amendment of right to remain silent and due process for self-incrimination etc. and the Tenth Amendment of states rights and "any law not specifically delegated to the federal government in the US Constitution is reserved to the states." All of these 23 mandates signed into law today blatantly violate the Constitution of the United States of America.

Bible Study Ban Followup

The Gilbert Town Council held a Special Meeting Monday night (3/22/2010) to discuss the now infamous Land Development Code (LDC) and the need to revise a couple of land use provisions.

Arizona Constitution Seminar: 11/23/2013

Did you know that the Arizona Constitution is comprised of only 108 pages?  Here’s the link.  The United States Constitution, including all 27 Amendments is comprised of only 21 pages.  Here’s the link.  Did you know that the Arizona Constitution provides more individual protections in some areas than the U.S. Constitution, but that it also contains some of the most destructive, progressive elements as well?  Have you heard of the Black Robe Regiment, and its recent resurgence?  Here’s the link.   Did you know that more than ever in the history of America, our religious liberties are being assaulted, and Alliance Defending Freedom is doing all possible to help?  Were you aware that when the IRS informs you that you must submit to an audit, they are violating the Fourth Amendment, unless they have obtained a search warrant and proved probable causethat you have broken a law?  Here’s the link.  

We learned this and much more at the 11/23/2013 seminar that was organized by Sue Goodchild and held at the Living Faith Center in Prescott Valley.  The cost was a mere $20, and included a wonderful catered lunch.

The speakers were Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne, Arizona Senator Chester Crandell (LD6), former Arizona Senator and Justice of the Peace Lester Pearce, and Shane Krauser, the director of the American Academy for Constitutional Education.

It was eye opening. 

Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne spoke about some of the more positive aspects of provisions found in the Arizona Constitution.  He first noted the Preamble, which is similar to the U.S. Constitution as well as other states’ constitutions all across America:
