    Government Lawyers promote Equality Act, a deceptive attack on our free market system

    See AG Raoul leads coalition supporting Federal Equality Act

    Jun. 23, 2021

    CHICAGO, Ill. (KFVS) - On June 23, Attorney General Kwame Raoul led a coalition of 25 attorneys general calling on the U.S. Senate to pass legislation that protects individuals from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity

    We have already witnessed the devastating consequences of “protected class legislation” being forced upon the American people, [The Americans with Disabilities Act] without their approval via a constitutional amendment granting the necessary power to Congress to adopt “appropriate legislation” over the subject matter in question.


    Like the unconstitutional Americans with Disabilities Act, which usurped legislative power over a subject matter not entrusted to Congress, the Equality Act, if forced upon the people, will once again swing open the door for countless lawsuits from opportunists and fringe element activists, and would allow our bottom feeding scum sucking shyster lawyers to have a field day with the law, just as they did with the unconstitutional American’s with Disabilities Act.

    See, e.g., Florida man sues dozens of Colorado businesses - KMGH-TV

    Also see: Drive-By Lawsuits and the Abuse of the Americans with …

    And especially see:

    The ADA Litigation Monster | Americans with Disabilities Act

    “The notion that the ADA would not “lead endlessly to litigation” was also wrong. (See “The ADA Shakedown Racket,” Winter 2004.) ADA claims against employers filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), now numbering more than 26,000 per year, have become as common as sex-discrimination claims. And the volume keeps rising, as does the number of ADA lawsuits against employers filed in federal court yearly.”


    The Equality Act is intentionally designed to put the muscle of government in the hands of a "protected class" [those participating in abnormal sexual behavior] who may then use that muscle to force the unwilling to engage in contracts and unwanted associations with them.

    Keep in mind, the Equality Act is an attempt to subvert the American People’s inalienable right to be free to mutually agree in their contracts and associations, including their social and commercial activities.

    How each person uses that freedom is a different discussion, and even though the choices made by some may appear to be grounded in absurd and repulsive beliefs and prejudices, and their choices reject an across the board inclusiveness based upon wrongheaded thinking, under what authority can one claim to refuse to defend their right to freedom of choice, while demanding their own freedom to choose shall be protected by the force of government? To do so indicates a bigoted belief . . . "inclusiveness for me but not for thee".

    The bottom line is, the Equality Act attempts to exercise legislative power proposed under the “Equal Rights Amendment” which was wisely rejected by the American people in the 1980s. It reads:

    'Article--


    'Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.

    'Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

    'Section 3. This article shall take effect 2 years after the date of ratification.'



    The American people, having rejected the above mentioned "Equal Rights Amendment", makes it crystal clear that the "Equality Act" is an attempt by our federal government to exercise legislative power not granted, and wisely rejected by the American people.

    How the “Equality Act” Is Actually Unequal, Unfair, and Unjust

    .
    For those genuinely interested in some of the devastating consequences which would result if the “Equality Act”, H.R.5 — 117th Congress (2021-2022), was forced upon the people as the “rule of law”, I suggest you read the following article:

    How the “Equality Act” Is Actually Unequal, Unfair, and Unjust

    The article begins:

    “The Equality Act is legislation that would massively overhaul our federal civil rights framework in order to mandate special privileges for sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI), expand abortion access, and gut religious liberty—leaving many to suffer the consequences, including women, children, medical professionals, parents, teachers, students, families (including small business owners), the unborn, churches, religious organizations and schools, people of faith, and even those members of the LGBT community it claims to protect”


    The bottom line is, the Equality Act attempts to exercise legislative power proposed under the “Equal Rights Amendment” which was wisely rejected by the American people, and thus, to this degree, the Act is an attempted usurpation of legislative power not granted.

    Equality Act appears to be stalled in the Senate . . . hopefully it is!

    .
    It seems that the so-called “Equality Act”, which would subvert and overrule the inalienable right of people being free to mutually agree in their contracts and associations, and that includes their social and commercial activities, is stalled in the Senate.



    My personal view is, the only lawful way to legitimize the legislation found in the “Equality Act” is to delegate the power to Congress to adopt “appropriate legislation” over the subject matter in question via an amendment to our federal Constitution.


    Any attempt by our federal government to use its force to impose the legislation found in the “Equality Act” would be a direct assault on the terms of our Constitution, and its demand for consent of the governed, which requires their approval under the terms found in Article V.


    As one notable Supreme Court Justice put it:


    “The public welfare demands that constitutional cases must be decided according to the terms of the Constitution itself, and not according to judges’ views of fairness, reasonableness, or justice.” – Justice Hugo L. Black ( U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1886 - 1971) Source: Lecture, Columbia University, 1968

    Sen. James Lankford nails the “Equality Act” for what it really is!

    .
    .

    See Lankford: ‘The Equality Act Is Not About Equality’ - It’s About ‘Imposing and Prohibiting Disagreement’

    June 25, 2021

    “The Equality Act is not about equality. It's about imposing and prohibiting disagreement. We're Americans. We can respect each other and disagree. We can live next door to each other and disagree. Let's prove it in this body by not passing the poorly named Equality Act but actually demonstrating what this act says it wants to demonstrate. Let's treat each other with respect in our differences and honor us in that.”

    .
    Senator Lankford is absolutely correct about the deceptively named “Equality Act”. The Act is about its supporters imposing their will upon the entire population of the United States, and prohibiting the American people from exercising one of mankind’s most fundamental rights ____ the right to mutually agree in their contracts and associations, and this includes their social and commercial activities.

    Let us all remember that our system of government reserves to the States and people therein, all powers not delegated to the United States by our federal Constitution. In essence, our founders created a big tent system, intentionally protecting the right of the people within the various state borders, to regulate ". . . all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State." And under this big-tent system, Massachusetts was the first state to legalize same sex marriage, confirming the system works, even for those wanting same sex marriages!

    In addition, our founders also provided Article V, an amendment process in our federal Constitution to accommodate necessary change at the federal level, but only by consent of the governed as laid out in Article V.

    Unfortunately, instead of embracing our constitutional system, those backing the “Equality Act” including members of Congress who took an oath to support and defend our written Constitution, are quite comfortable to allow, and even encourage, their will being imposed upon the entire population of the United States by enforcing legislation [the Equality Act] encompassing a subject matter [sex] not granted by the people to Congress as required by Article V, with the exception being the 19th Amendment, which does grant power to Congress to adopt “appropriate legislation” regarding “sex”, but limited as follows:

    Amendment XIX

    “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”


    “Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.



    So, the question is, where in the Constitution has Congress been delegated power to adopt "appropriate legislation" to forbid distinctions made within the States based upon sex, and likewise forbid distinctions made based upon sex in the people’s social and commercial activities within the various state borders?"

    And let us all remember the protection which our Constitution’s Tenth Amendment declares in crystal clear language: “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 in regard to the above mentioned Tenth Amendment's protection, Justice Story warned us that: "If the Constitution was ratified under the belief, sedulously propagated on all sides that such protection was afforded, would it not now be a fraud upon the whole people to give a different construction to its powers?"
