A Hundred New States

A treaty signed by the President and approved by two-thirds of the Senate does not fall under the limits of the United States Constitution. If my understanding is still correct, a treaty signed by any country could bring states into the Union.

Say maybe exactly a hundred of them.

Then if my distant memories of lecturing in constitutional and international law are accurate, and if those senators voted the right way, which is just about guaranteed, the President and a foreign country he picked would exercise a dictatorship in the US.

And there is ample precedent for this in the congresses that adopted the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments.

The Nazis took over Germany constitutionally. They evoked the emergency provisions which were already in the Weimar Constitution. Hitler bragged that his referenda were the last elections Germany would have for a thousand years. But the Weimar Emergency Clauses set no time limit.

The Bricker Amendment was proposed to force treaties to conform to the Constitution. This was stopped by the left, just as it was the left which set the precedents for a congress changing fundamental law by a minority of the real vote.

I even found that law students were often unaware of the extra constitutional power of treaties.

I wonder how many law students today could tell you the one provision of the United States Constitution which cannot be amended?

Superstition has it that when we begin to seize anti-white assets they will simply go abroad. In Rhodesia during sanctions, one the main sports was moving money around. I remember it well.

The main problem with hiding money is its definition. Money is defined as an instrument which is identified as money. Not identifiable, IDENTIFIED. You are trying to secretly move something which everybody knows is money.

Even with cooperation of the banking systems of South Africa and Portugal it was very hard to move Rhodesian money into the international monetary system. And we’re talking thousands of dollars.

Paper constitutions do not make countries. Paper provisions do not make basic systems.

When a country changes fundamentally, the paperwork necessary to suit the new country is no problem.
