Foundation of all American Constitutional law is the Declaration of Independence changing the administration of American law [Constitution] forever on the foundation of: laws of nature and nature’s God. Where is that today? rebuked by man.
If rebuked [by unlawful actions] of the People and its agents [elected employees] under first principles of DOI, who has the right to ethically claim a single protection of the Bill of Rights; of the laws of nature and nature's God created Constitution?
No One. IMO.
Hence, one founder, John Adams wrote: Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious People. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
Happy on life support Constitution day.…

Η δυνατότητα μιας επιχείρησης να εγκαταστήσει ανεμογεννήτριες περνάει μέσα από μια δαιδαλώδη διαδικασία, η οποία συχνά υπερβαίνει τα δέκα χρόνια. #environment #energy #windfarms #constitution #thread
Από την στιγμή που θα υποβάλει την αίτηση μαζί με όλα τα δικαιολογητικά και κυρίως την μελέτη περιβαλλοντικών επιπτώσεων όπου κρίνεται κατά πόσον το αιολικό πάρκο είναι συμβατό ή όχι με τις προϋποθέσεις της νομοθεσίας που είναι πολύ αυστηρές
θα κριθεί αν μπορεί να λάβει μια σειρά από άδειες, μέχρι την τελική, την Απόφαση Έγκρισης Περιβαλλοντικών Όρων (ΑΕΠΟ) που πάντοτε αναρτάται από το ΥΠΕN.

I'm not a lawyer. I didn't attend law school. I'm the biggest skeptic of the #RuleOfLaw that I know.

Here's my thread of highlights (excerpts & passages) from #SupremeMyths: Why The Supreme Court Is Not A Court & Its Justices Are Not Judges by @espinsegall + my comments.
Preface | “It’s no great secret that the Supreme Court’s Constitutional Law decisions reflect the personal values of the Justices…that politics & personality affect the Court’s decisions is only the beginning of the story.”

#SCOTUS produces case law, hence, it's a legislature.
Prologue xiii | “If changing judges changes law, it is not even clear what law is.” ~ Judge Richard Posner

A law means whatever the hell the writers say it means or doesn't mean, based on definition of words & syntax. Writing laws is an art form, it's not mathematics.

La question de la légitimité, de l'éthique et de la partialité des prétendus "juges politiques" de la Rue de Montpensier est posée.

Le passif sanitaire de Laurent Fabius est tel que s'il avait 1 once de dignité, il y a lgtpsqu'il aurait dû disparaître de la scène politique
Et si on parlait de la rémunération des membres du Conseil constitutionnel ?... là pour le coup se pose 1 problème d'éthique et de probité !
Florence Parly a validé la mise en place d'1 système de rémunérations en partie ILLEGALE !

THREAD: The Constitution of Pakistan envisages a three tiered federation; this was asserted by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in its judgement in the local government restoration case. 1/5
The discussions on centralizing tendencies of political governments tend to ignore our lopsided administrative structure. We can’t have a healthy federation without administrative autonomy in every tier of government. 2/5
Currently, the federal service dominates all three tiers of government and their power and influence increases in lower tiers (provincial and municipal). 3/5

The #Constitution was founded on the idea that the role of government is to protect God-given rights.

Now, that doctrine is under assault, and the numerous rights of Americans are in jeopardy. (Thread👇)

Watch FREE on @EpochTVus:…
As a new narrative is being taught to America’s youth: #FreeSpeech is being worn down through #Censorship, #ReligiousFreedom is being suppressed, and the right to bear arms is being called into doubt.

As history itself is being rewritten, what does the future hold for America?

#BackToSchool Conservatives like to insist that they revere the U.S. Constitution, though many have very little familiarity with it. There’s many more amendments than just their favorite, #2.
1/ Thread #Constitution #DemsWork4USA
We have 3 Branches of Government:
1. Legislative: makes laws; Article 1
2. Executive: enforces laws; Article 2
3. Judicial: interprets laws; Article 3
2/ #backtoschool #Constitution
When the Constitution was written there were two entrenched factions. Federalists: supported the Constitution; wanted a strong central government,;  Madison, Hamilton, and Jay wrote Federalist Papers trying to get the public to support the Constitution.

The commonality is, we are #patriots who love the #constitution and love America. Here...we stand for the flag.

The #Biden administration has continued to use FEAR and SCARE tactics to convince Americans that only Big Government can rescue them from the evil perils of #COVID19.

Et si #Déby s'était fait avoir par mégarde!?
Ce fil est proposé tel la chronique d'un piège fatal, où un scénario est fixé à partir de faits recoupés. Accessoirement, les hypothèses les moins crédibles seront écartées.
Pour commencer, condoléances au peuple tchadien..
Ensuite, rentrant dans le vif du sujet, il s'agira de rappeler des dates et leurs moments clés associés...

Adoption de la nouvelle constitution renforçant les institutions (création du sénat et d'un poste de vice-président).
Le texte ici…
Cette #constitution piloté par #Déby, vise à sécuriser son pouvoir, en posant les bases pour un transfert de pouvoir à se proches, tout en donnant des gages démocratiques.
Mon analyse sur ce sujet à lire ici...

#Primer on #Ethiopian Politics

#Unitarist Vs #Federlaist

- Has little to do with level of #decentralisation of power ordinarily associated with these notions

A critical mass of Ethiopians support #federalism-incl most, if not all, forces within ruling party - incl Abiy - 1
For #ethnonationalists, I believe, any politics based on individual #equality (citizenship or republican politics) is #Unitarist - so #Nigeria, #Kenya (which ban ethnic parties), #Germany and #UnitedStates are Unitary, regardless of their robust federal/devolved structures - 2
What ethnonatioanlists consider #federalist is actually politics based on #ethnicity - (which goes beyond ethnic federalism) - much like Arend Lijphart's prototypical #consociational system - so soemthing like #Belgium and #BosniaHerzegovina, but for 80+ ethnic groups – 3

Our Founders assumed that even good men/women could fail us because humans are imperfect and power corrupts. They set up checks &balances and separation of powers to protect against tyranny. Fast forward to 2020. /1 #COVID19 #masks #lockdowns #vaccines
We spent 2020 ignoring these checks and balances. We act as if separation of powers doesn’t exist, & we must obey executive edicts &/or federal bureaucrats “for our safety.” /2 #COVID19 #masks #lockdowns #vaccines
Meanwhile, livelihoods have been destroyed. Our children are hurting. Depression, missed cancer screenings, etc. are wreaking havoc w/families. The fabric of society is in tatters.
