In my recent article, "As Regards Martial Law" I posed the following question: "Think of the IRS, FEMA, DOJ, BATF, FBI, CIA--- all these "agencies" formed back in the 1930's by the Roosevelt Administration?"
Just a few days ago, I reported the history of the Department of Justice which was created in the 1870's, so obviously, the word "formed" as used above does not mean "created". I am not saying that all these agencies "came into being" in the 1930's.
The word "formed" means "the shape or configuration of something" or "the mold used to impose a specific shape or configuration on something".
So I am talking here about the "formation" not the "creation" of these agencies--- how they were all uniformly re-defined and empowered.
Prior to the 1930's all the agencies created by the Federal Government had a mandate and a set of laws created by the Congress which the Agencies enforced. Period. Their nature was that of an "enforcement agency" --- a means by which the laws promulgated by Congress could be enforced.
If anything changed, the Congress had to change it. If anything was added, the Congress had to add it. And if anything was subtracted, the Congress had to repeal it.
Under this system, the Congress remained accountable for the administrative actions of the Agencies and the Agencies remained strictly under the supervision of Congress and acted only upon the authority of laws passed by Congress.
Any politics that entered into the creation of the law entered in at the level of the Congress.
But in the 1930's the Congress did something that strictly speaking the Congress is not allowed to do. It shuffled off its own powers to the Agencies and enabled the Agencies to promulgate their own "laws" in the form of "Administrative Code".
So all the Agencies started promulgating their own internal "administrative laws" and developing their own "Administrative Code" and enforcing it "as" law----and suddenly instead of having one Federal Code and one Federal Legislative Power vested in the United States Congress, we have had dozens if not hundreds of "Agencies" ramming around creating "law".
I have witnessed this process first-hand as a former employee of the "STATE OF ALASKA - DEPARTMENT OF LABOR" which is a corporate franchise of the Federal DOL. Part of my job involved participation in "Administrative Tribunals" and interpretation of "Administrative Code".
The Agencies, which we never authorized to do any such thing, have been acting as mini-Congresses within their area of expertise, and as they have been under the direction of political appointees, their actions have been highly politicized, too.
By allowing the Agencies to promulgate de facto "law" in the form of Administrative Code (think of it as dozens of little "Federal Codes" springing up all over) the Congress gave away its own power to un-elected and unaccountable subcontractors, put these Agencies under the control of political appointees, and let them loose on the Public.
And that, similar to Congress's similar granting away of its power to the Federal Reserve, is the crux of the matter and the problem I am discussing.
Congress has "delegated away" it's own powers and responsibilities to un-elected bodies and there is no suggestion anywhere in any form of Federal Constitution allowing them to do this.
That's a very serious problem in and of itself.
We have to deal with the problem of gross Municipal Government overreach and with the unauthorized promulgation of Administrative "laws" by un-elected persons and with the similar grotesque abdication of responsibility for our monetary system.
I have had some boneheads jumping up and down and saying I "lied" because they don't know the difference between the words "formed" and "created". That's their problem, not mine.
The very much greater problem that we all have is failure to understand how the Agencies have been allowed to usurp and exercise dictatorial powers as un-elected mini-legislatures, and then also act as their own executive enforcement branch.
Thanks to the multiple abdications of the Congress, most of which took place in the 1930's, we have had foreign bankers in charge of our monetary system and credit, and have had un-elected political appointees running parallel min-governments controlling virtually every sector of our economy.
This is the process and the problem that Ayn Rand described so eloquently in her book, "Atlas Shrugged". And like her and her hero, John Galt, I am suggesting that we all go on strike and put an end to this foreign usurpation of our powers.
The members of Congress are and have been in a state of insurrection against the Constitutions --- all three of them, for decades. Its high time we called the cards for what they are.
This Ship of State has been off-course and drifting toward a reef for longer than I can remember and it is largely because of the "formation" of a foreign municipal and administrative government using Agencies overseen by political appointees and un-elected bureaucrats to supplant the authority and responsibility of the government we are owed.
Most, but not all this damage was done to us in the 1930's, via such acts as the Emergency Banking Act and the re-structured Sheppard-Towner Maternity and Infancy Act and by Executive Orders issued by FDR.
The Democrats among us who don't like to hear the facts are invited to research the issues for themselves, own up, and take correction. The Republicans who didn't do the right thing then are invited to do the right thing now.
And we are all obligated to do our part to get this mess straightened out once and for all.
If it takes Martial Law to make the necessary correction, so be it.
If it takes arresting and unseating three-quarters of the members of Congress and new elections, so be it.
If it takes the wholesale dismemberment and liquidation of entire Agencies and the end of all related Federal "services"---- so be it.
We did not create this government to lord over us in every detail of our lives, nor did we authorize it to steal our identity, change our political status, and confiscate our assets. These are all activities which have been engaged in via the unauthorized and politicized "Administrative Government" and the members of Congress, with the bulk of the wrong-doing coming to fruition in the 1930's.
As I observed in my article, "Dorothy, Come Home!" the rot began in the 1860's and we had already suffered a whole round of "national" bankruptcy fraud in the early 1900's, so what happened again in the 1930's must be viewed in the context of the groundwork already established by prior events.
At the same time, the 1930's does have to be viewed as "the" time when the worst of the offenses occurred and the worst of the changes were made, especially as regards the usurpation of power by the Municipal Corporations and Agencies.
Anyone who wants to argue about it can go back to the Federal Register and start reading from 1928 forward.
