    Biden Administration to sue Texas for protecting its border from an ongoing invasion

    .
    SEE: DOJ to sue Texas over floating border barrier; Abbott says 'see you in court

    "The Department of Justice says it intends to sue Texas Gov. Greg Abbott over the use of a floating buoy border barrier to stop illegal immigration into the state — a move that immediately drew a fiery response from the Republican governor."
    This is absolutely mind boggling. The Biden Administration wants Texas to leave its front door unlocked to allow its home to be invaded by millions of foreign nationals.

    Our Constitution, and only those laws made in pursuance thereof, are the supreme law.

    The Biden Administration is asserting the State of Texas is in violation of section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act, 33 U.S.C. § 403. Let us keep in mind the Act in question is alleged to be authorized and in pursuance of Congress’ authority to “regulate commerce with foreign nations . . .” But the authority granted to Congress to “… regulate commerce with foreign nations . . .” was never intended to, nor does its text remotely suggest, the State of Texas is forbidden by the power granted to protect its immediate and adjoining water ways from a flood of unwanted foreign nationals invading its borders.

    SO, WHAT IS THE PURPOSE FOR GRANTING CONGRESS REGULATORY POWER OVER COMMERCE ?

    One purpose for which Congress was granted power to regulate commerce among the states is found in Art. 1, Sec. 9 of our Constitution.

    “No Preference shall be given by any Regulation of Commerce or Revenue to the Ports of one State over those of another: nor shall Vessels bound to, or from, one State, be obliged to enter, clear, or pay Duties in another.”

    A primary intention for which the power to “regulate commerce” was granted to Congress was to guarantee free trade among the States and this is documented in Federalist Paper No. 42:

    “A very material object of this power was the relief of the States which import and export through other States, from the improper contributions levied on them by the latter. Were these at liberty to regulate the trade between State and State, it must be foreseen that ways would be found out to load the articles of import and export, during the passage through their jurisdiction, with duties which would fall on the makers of the latter and the consumers of the former. We may be assured by past experience, that such a practice would be introduced by future contrivances; and both by that and a common knowledge of human affairs, that it would nourish unceasing animosities, and not improbably terminate in serious interruptions of the public tranquility.”

    The power to regulate commerce among the states was in fact intended to prevent one state from taxing another State’s goods as they passed through its borders or interfering with the movement of such goods.

    Additionally, as previously pointed out, the power to regulate commerce also grants an oversight to Congress in a specific and clearly identified area__ a State‘s inspection laws:

    “No state shall, without the consent of the Congress, lay any imposts or duties on imports or exports, except what may be absolutely necessary for executing it's inspection laws: and the net produce of all duties and imposts, laid by any state on imports or exports, shall be for the use of the treasury of the United States; and all such laws shall be subject to the revision and control of the Congress.”

    It is sheer insanity, or an intentional act of tyranny, to even suggest the State Delegates to the Convention of 1787 which framed our Constitution, or the State Legislatures when ratifying the Constitution, intended by the power in question, to be delegating authority to Congress to subjugate the various States’ original authority to protect their borders from an unwanted invasion of foreign nationals. The power delegated to Congress to regulate commerce has been so distorted and abused over the years, that it is time for our Supreme Court to expound upon the intended and limited authority agreed to by the States and people therein, who gave their consent to the clause in question.

    What commerce is Gov. Abbot interfering with that Biden is challenging in Court?

    .

    As previously pointed out, the Biden Administration is asserting the State of Texas is in violation of section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act, 33 U.S.C. § 403, which was enacted under Congress’ authority to “regulate commerce with foreign nations." So, what is the commerce which Gov. Abbot is interfering with that is upsetting the Biden Administration?

    Seems to me Biden is furious because Abbot is interfering with the Mexican Cartel’s drug and human trafficking commerce into the United States, and Gov. Abbot's interference with such commerce is costing the “big guy” his piece of the action.

    Interfering with the "commerce" of sex trafficking, child trafficking, drug trafficking, arms trafficking, slavery, and 10% to the Big Guy, the employers who employ them, the pedo's that exploit them, and the underground reptiles who profit off of them.

    What "commerce" is being hindered by the floating barrier installed by Gov. Abbot?

    Spot on!

    Just for the record, the constitutional authority for adopting the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 ( which Biden asserts is being violated by Gov. Abbot) is Congress’ delegated power to regulate commerce, and its legislative intent was to insure an “… unfettered waterborne commerce between the states, while allowing for the accommodation of local interests.” SOURCE

    And just what commerce is taking place in the Rio Grande waterway that is being hindered by the floating barrier installed by Texas? In order for Gov. Abbot to comply with Biden’s objections, Gov. Abbot needs to have Biden identify exactly what commerce is being hindered by the floating barrier installed by Texas other than the Mexican Cartel’s drug, human trafficking, and slave trade commerce into the United States, so he may comply with the legislative intent of the "Rivers and Harbors Act" of 1899, and not interfere with such commerce.

    It's as simple as that. Put up or shut up Biden.

    There is no surer way to weaken, subdue and bring to its knees a prosperous and freedom loving country than by flooding it with deadly drugs, an inflated currency and the poverty stricken, poorly educated, low skilled, diseased, disabled, and criminal populations of other countries.

    Biden’s lawsuit against Texas’ floating barrier fails to state an actionable harm.

    .
    Biden’s COMPLAINT to have Gov. Abbott remove a floating barrier erected to help protect the State of Texas from an ongoing invasion of illegal entrant foreign nationals, drugs, and human trafficking, fails to identify the “commerce” being affected by said barrier.

    The Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 (which is asserted to be violated)
    was adopted under Congress’ limited delegation of power to “regulate commerce”, and to ensure a “… unfettered waterborne commerce between the states, while allowing for the accommodation of local interests.” SOURCE

    While the State of Texas has PROVIDED justifiable cause for the floating barrier, and that it is essential to protecting the general welfare of the good people of the State of Texas from an ongoing invasion of illegal entrant foreign nationals, the Biden complaint does not provide a shred of evidence showing the floating barrier has interfered with or disrupted any specifically mentioned commerce.

    Since the complaint asserts a violation of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899, and that Act was adopted under Congress’ limited authority to “regulate commerce”, the complaint is facially flawed in that it mentions no hindrance of commerce.

    On the other hand, the State of Texas has established good cause for the floating barrier, and likewise established the current Administrations’ blatant failure to protect the State of Texas from an ongoing invasion, which Article 4, Section 4 of our Constitution commands the current Administration to honor.

    Tells you all you need to know about the Biden regime's motives.

    Texas is already overwhelmed, and it quickly becoming a lawless, crime ridden slum. Years ago it was isolated to the larger cities, but now illegals have spilled out into the more rural areas. The town I live in has gone from nearly 0 illegals to probably about 70% in the last few years.

    You can't let your kids out to play unsupervised, because there are now kidnappings regularly. Sex crimes, property crimes, violence, and environmental violations are all on the rise. Trash is everywhere, local infrastructure is in shambles, and gunfire and jungle music now ring through the night air.

    One look at the county police roster will tell you exactly what type of "people" are the problem.

    The border should have been secured years ago.

    Common sense tells us what the Biden COMPLAINT is really about. The "big guy" is pissed that the floating barrier is cutting into his ten percent kick-back for allowing Mexican Cartel commerce in drug and human trafficking.

    Biden Administration vs the State of Texas __ a summary of the floating barrier case

    .
    .
    Keep in mind that nowhere in the Biden Administrations' COMPLAINT file with the court, does it point to a provision in the federal Constitution under which the Biden Administration is acting and has been violated by the State of Texas.


    The complaint references "VIOLATION OF THE RIVERS AND HARBORS ACT" which is an act adopted under Congress' power "to regulate commerce". So, the real question is, what commerce has/or is, being obstructed by the State of Texas which has erected a floating barrier to protect the State of Texas and its good citizens from a massive and ongoing illegal, human and adolescent sex trafficking into the State of Texas, in addition to deadly drugs ___ all of which the State of Texas has an absolute authority to prohibit being trafficked into the State?

    On the other hand, the State of Texas has PROVIDED justifiable cause for the floating barrier, and that it is essential to protecting the general welfare of the good people of the State of Texas from an ongoing invasion of illegal entrant foreign nationals, deadly drugs, and human trafficking of children used as sex slaves.

    Additionally, the State of Texas contends the Biden Administration has been recklessly negligent and refused for years, to be obedient to Article IV, § 4 of the U.S. Constitution and other laws of the United States, and that such violations have led to a crisis in the State of Texas of "...imminent Danger as will not admit of delay..." compelling Texas to invoke the powers reserved in Article I, § 10, Clause 3, which represents “an acknowledgement of the States’ sovereign interest in protecting their borders.”
