Breaking - Oklahoma Declares Sovereignty Under Tenth Amendment - Is OK getting ready to bug out?
Oklahoma Declares Sovereignty Under Tenth Amendment
Author: Sam

17 Jun



Oklahoma passed a resolution reaffirming the state’s rights under the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution and informing the Federal government to essentially back off with their unconstitutional power grabs and mandates. Let’s see if they actually stand behind it. We need to start seeing more of this.

This is the text of House Joint Resolution 1089

STATE OF OKLAHOMA

2nd Session of the 51st Legislature (2008)

HOUSE JOINT RESOLUTION 1089 By: Key

AS INTRODUCED

<StartFT>A Joint Resolution claiming sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over certain powers; serving notice to the federal government to cease and desist certain mandates; and directing distribution. <EndFT>

WHEREAS, the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States reads as follows:

“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.”; and

WHEREAS, the Tenth Amendment defines the total scope of federal power as being that specifically granted by the Constitution of the United States and no more; and

WHEREAS, the scope of power defined by the Tenth Amendment means that the federal government was created by the states specifically to be an agent of the states; and

WHEREAS, today, in 2008, the states are demonstrably treated as agents of the federal government; and

WHEREAS, many federal mandates are directly in violation of the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States; and

WHEREAS, the United States Supreme Court has ruled in New York v. United States, 112 S. Ct. 2408 (1992), that Congress may not simply commandeer the legislative and regulatory processes of the states; and

WHEREAS, a number of proposals from previous administrations and some now pending from the present administration and from Congress may further violate the Constitution of the United States.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AND THE SENATE OF THE 2ND SESSION OF THE 51ST OKLAHOMA LEGISLATURE:

THAT the State of Oklahoma hereby claims sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government by the Constitution of the United States.

THAT this serve as Notice and Demand to the federal government, as our agent, to cease and desist, effective immediately, mandates that are beyond the scope of these constitutionally delegated powers.

THAT a copy of this resolution be distributed to the President of the United States, the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, the Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate of each state’s legislature of the United States of America, and each member of the Oklahoma Congressional Delegation.

Not really. I live in Oklahoma and this is the first I have heard of this. It's just more BS. I can tell you right now that we don't have enough state police to back any of this up.
Also, most of our judges and courts are corrupt as hell!

I figured as much. However, it is still 'encouraging' that these concepts of liberty are popping out here and there.
However it becomes 'self-evident' to each his/her own, it feels like the climate is changing all around, folks are waking up from a self-deluted state.
I feel we will see more of these 'declarations' in the near future AND coming from the most un-likely of places.

For Immediate Release
12/19/08
Citizens to Assemble in Support of Bipartisan Legislative Efforts to Protect Oklahomans from the Federal Collection, Sharing and Control of Personal Data.
Oklahoma City, OK - A non-partisan “Citizens Assembly for Oklahoma Sovereignty” will be held on Saturday, January 3rd, 2009 in support of upcoming legislation that will protect Oklahomans privacy and prevent the further collection and sharing of sensitive personal data.
Sponsored by the national group The Constitutional Alliance, OK-SAFE, and R3publicans, the evening meeting will feature special guest speakers Senator Constance Johnson and Representative Charles Key.
The discussion topics will include Oklahoma’s Tenth Amendment Resolution, which asserts and protects state’s rights; the collection of sensitive personal data, including biometric samples and data; and the global sharing of citizen’s personal information.
Also discussed will be the federal legislation known as the REAL ID Act of 2005, which, for the first time in our country’s history, standardized the requirements for state driver’s licenses and identification cards. The controversial, and unfunded, federal law included requirements to collect personal biometric data on citizens, participation in a growing national/international database of personal data, and allowed for the global information sharing of data.
States which were non-compliant with the federal REAL ID mandates were threatened with prohibiting those citizens without the new biometric driver’s licenses or identification cards access to government buildings or being allowed to board a federally regulated airplane.
Oklahomans overwhelmingly rejected participation in the REAL ID Act of 2005 with the passage of SB 464 in 2007, passed by both houses.
The bill, signed into law in May 2007 by Democrat Governor Brad Henry, clearly stated Oklahoma’s non-participation in the REAL ID Act, however, in early 2008 the Governor wrote a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff asking for an extension to comply with REAL ID mandates.
The Constitutional Alliance has been helping legislators, officials and citizens groups across the country to understand the inherent dangers of biometric data collection and has helped to develop model legislation strengthening a citizen’s right to privacy and identity protection. The Alliance and other conservative groups recognize that Oklahoma, considered the most conservative state in the union, will be looked to as a leader in protecting the rights and freedoms of its’ citizens.
Nationally known biometric expert, Mark Lerner, who has travelled the U.S. extensively educating legislators and citizens’ groups on the dangers of biometric data collection, will be present. Donations will be accepted to help fund travel expenses for Mr. Lerner.
The “Citizens Assembly for Oklahoma Sovereignty” will be held at the Character First Training Center, 520 W. Main, Oklahoma City on Saturday, January 3rd, 2009. The meeting begins at 7:00 pm.
