I hate to say I told you so, but, I told you so.
Two years ago I wrote about the appointment of former Yale Law School Dean Harold Koh as senior legal advisor to the State Department.
Why did I warn you? Because Koh is the leading proponent of an unconstitutional reading of what is known as “The Supremacy Clause” of the Constitution*
Simply stated, the Supremacy Clause says that in cases where State and Federal law conflict, Federal Law will govern. It was put there to deal with many of the issues that had arisen in the early days of the Republic, and previously under the Articles of Confederation, largely commerce issues.
However, the Supremacy Clause has also always been read as saying that US Law supersedes International Laws or agreements. In other words, the President cannot sign treaties or agreements that violate the Constitution.
The purpose of Obama reaching out for Harold Koh, and then appointing an entire coterie of Koh’s supplicants, from Sotomayor, to Holder, et al, is to begin the process of moving toward George Soros’ “Open Society”.
What does that mean? A world without borders, essentially.
It is why Obama, for the first time in US history has subjugated US military personnel in a large action, to an international body
It is no small difference that in the past, US Presidents may have sought UN affirmation, but never was it that body that made the US act.
Even more so, we have always led NATO actions, limited as they have been.
And once again, I sit stunned by the failure of even a single member of the Press to recognize, let alone discuss, this.
*Article IV, Paragraph 2 of the Constitution:
“This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding.”
