Is There A Constitutional Crisis In The USA No One Is Addressing?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Everyone is so smitten with high tech and other political correctness ‘awareness’ goings on, no one is paying attention to the fact our Constitutional Rights, especially those emphasized in the first ten amendments, aka the Bill of Rights, originally proposed and then written by James Madison, are being overlooked, denied and, basically, thrown to the winds as if they did not exist!

As I hear the drumbeats of what’s going on around the country with regard to all sorts of consumer and taxpayer issues, I think I understand how all these crises are being rolled out simultaneously so everyone thinks they are the new norm.  Well, let’s think again! I say.  We still have the U.S. Constitution, which is the basic law of the USA, and also we have individual state’s Constitutions which, in most cases, parrot some of the rights in the U.S. Constitution.  So, what’s gone wrong, you say?

Well, there are two perfect examples in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The first occurs in a sleepy little Borough of Pottstown.   Pottstown’s ‘city fathers’ apparently enacted a biannual rental inspections policy requiring rental properties to be inspected, even against the renter’s wishes!

Question: Doesn’t that type of inspection require a warrant based upon probable cause?  According to KYW 1060 radio news reports, those inspections can include moving beds, looking into closets—actions which are “off limits for government” unless there is “probable cause.”

Dorothy and Omar Rivera, who rent a home from landlord Steven Camburn, filed a lawsuit against the borough to prevent such inspection.  Coincidentally, their landlord also joined in the suit!  The Riveras contend such inspections are unconstitutional; they are represented by an attorney with the Virginia-based Institute for Justice.

So, which Constitutional rights are the Riveras concerned about?  According to Dorothy Rivera, “I’m a private person. I’ve done nothing wrong, and I don’t want people snooping around my house.” [1] Add to that the fact their landlord says, “Everybody deserves privacy. If there’s no real probable cause, they should not be entering a house that is occupied.” [1]

Meagan Forbes, the plaintiffs’ attorney, says, “People should know about how intrusive these searches are.” [1]   However,

In the lawsuit, attorneys claim that Pottstown’s policy is too broad, allowing for inspectors to conduct “highly-intrusive, wall-to-wall searches for compliance with on-the-spot standards that inspectors are free to make up as they go along.” [1]

Hold the phone!  Stop the presses!  How about AMI Smart Meters?

What’s going on in Pottstown regarding rental property inspections is NOTHING compared with what’s happening to every Pennsylvania utility customer who is supplied electric, natural gas and water with more than 100,000 customers.

Customers’ appliances and usage are being monitored, collected and SOLD to third parties unknown to consumers without their knowledge and consent, nor a legal warrant to collect such personal information.  Check out Onzo and what that algorithm does with smart meter data and information.

Talk about “highly-intrusive and wall-to-wall searches” and being “too broad”!

AMI Smart Meters surveil and collect information, plus interact with customers’ appliances 24/7/365 in total violation of Amendments IV, V, and XIV §2 of the U.S. Constitution, including the Pennsylvania Constitution art. 1 §1.  [2]

And the most egregious part about the AMI Smart Meter snooping without a warrant is that AMI Smart Meters and their incessant snooping are mandated ‘supposedly by law’ by an erroneous interpretation of the PA Public Utility Commission’s “belief” interpretation of HB2200/Act 129 (2008), which actually was enacted in reality as an Opt-In Smart Meter bill as publicly published of record in section 2(i) below:

HB2200 §2807(f)7(2)

(2)  Electric distribution companies shall furnish smart meter technology as follows:

(i)  Upon request from a customer that agrees to pay the cost of the smart meter at the time of the request.

(ii)  In new building construction.

(iii)  In accordance with a depreciation schedule not to exceed 15 years. [2]

Furthermore, PA State Senator Fumo is on record in PA Senate Journal October 8, 2008 (pp. 2626-2631) stating, “In addition we did not mandate smart meters, but we made them optional.” [2]

However, the piece de resistance is this most damning of admissions by the PA PUC’s Office of Communications’ Dave Hixson in his letter to Thomas A. McCarey dated March 22, 2017 wherein Hixson says:

As I stated in my earlier email correspondence with you, the Commission believes that it was the intent of the General Assembly to require all covered electric companies to deploy smart meters system-wide.

[CJF emphasis added.  Thereby supposedly and illegally, the PA PUC made smart meters mandatory—not the state legislature!]

But that’s not all! 

Every U.S. state—bar none, except those states which provide opt-outs from AMI Smart Meters—are breaking federal law!  Did you know that?  The federal law which individual states are violating when they mandate smart meters is Public Law 109-58, The Energy Policy Act of 2005, §1252 Smart Metering [2].   Nothing is said about AMI smart meters being mandated!  That would be unconstitutional, I contend, so that’s why “mandated” is not in the language!  However, the feds offered a few ‘carrots’ i.e., grants and monetary incentives, to those utilities that would implement AMI Smart Meters.  What does that tell you?  Follow the money!

In essence, sleepy little Pottstown is “small potatoes” compared with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in denying Constitutional rights to citizens.

What’s going on in your state? 

Have you looked into your state’s AMI Smart Meters ‘law’; how AMI SMs are snooping on you; and that you don’t have to have them retrofitted; plus how your constitutional rights are being abrogated?

    The Constitutional Crisis has been ongoing for at least 100 years if not longer. The actual crisis is that no one actually pays attention to what it says and ‘interprets’ it according to whatever their agenda is.

  2. All government agencies are worthless and outside of the U.S. Constitution.
    The EPA does nothing but destroy rivers. Big pharma, FDA,CDC,WHO,AMA (the cartels) destroy internal organs. The CIA and FBI sell taxpayer guns for drugs that destroy humanity and are incorporated into their lousy synthetic drugs. The Education department destroys children’s minds.
    Science destroys the word of God.

    The treasonous Woodrow Wilson gave the keys the the unholy goat worshipers on 12/21/913 and the constitution has been eroded ever since.
    Glad David Rockefeller is dead and gone, where they should all be spending the rest of forever being tormented.

    • Unfortunately,it happened before that…the Us incorporated to raise funds for the Civil War and destruction of all who would not obey their corporate masters. Congress reincorporated the District of Columbia as THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA in 1871 and identified all US residents or citizens as their “property”. This lie from Hell has been a long time blooming…Now it is ready to come out in the open.

  3. “We still have the U.S. Constitution, which is the basic law of the USA”
    It is in fact the Supreme Law of the Land. Our Washington state Constitution re-iterates this in Art.1 Section 2. (Art.1 Sec.1 should be #1 in all Constitutions–look it up). The courts are merely pomp and circumstance covering up that it is actually an extortion racket–whether that be for money or power via more and more control. How much do victims get compared to what the courts are raking in? Courts are not fully funded by tax dollars, look it up. Where do you think the rest of it comes from to pay their very generous salaries, benefits and retirement? This has happened by the players using state codes to subvert the Constitutions limits on government. It’s that simple. Whenever they use the force of arms to enforce their subversion they are waring with the people’s Constitutionally created government–Treason, a capital offense. This is how serious it has become.

    We still have a federal constitution?

    • YES…but,US Citizens are defined as a fictional entity and property of the US Government…they actually possess no right to travel or maintain custody of their children! All US citizens are corporations owned by the corporation of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. A US citizen is defined as the subject of a trust. The term “resident” or “citizen” is a special class of people created by the US Congress in 1873 and are property of the Federal Government. US citizens have no rights under the constitution of the united states. The US Government is a foreign corporation according to a 1973 court ruling. So in summary, there are 2 national governments in our great nation. 1)US GOVT-run by Congress and all US residents are it’s slaves 2)The u.s. government for the united states for all peoples identifying as a “person”who is a resident of their state and are ruled by God’s law and the rights of man. State citizenship provides access to all rights of the constitution subsumed into the state constitution.

  5. Michael LeMieux: “The Constitution has very little to do with the American citizen. It was written to establish a Federal Government and to place the boundaries by which that government would operate. The constitution was never designed to provide or enumerate the rights of the citizens but to restrain the federal government from meddling in state and ultimately citizen affairs.”

    “We still have the U.S. Constitution, which is the basic law of the USA”

    The US Constitution is the compact between the states that created and defines our type of governments – state and federal; is the supreme Law of this land, and requires that ALL legislation that is to be binding on the American people be created ONLY by those who serve within the House of Representatives and the Senate (in writing) and to be in Pursuance thereof the US Constitution. It is the contract that ALL who serves within our governments – state and federal – are Oath bound to, and from where the duties and authorities of the branch or office within a branch those that serve within our governments are allowed to use as long as they keep the *contract. Within it some of the things NOT delegated to either the states or the federal government is listed within the Bill of Rights that are REQUIRED to be protected by those who serve within our governments – including the natural rights not listed within the US Constitution and that also is made clear in writing within Amendment 9.

    Our Declaration of Independence says that the American colonies of Great Britain had become “free and independent states” — separate states/nations that combined together to share a foreign policy that the federal (general) government was created to do as all the united States’ representative. The U.S. Constitution refers constantly to the states, but never to a “nation”; and this is a fact everyone should be considering because in our nation, within our type of government, we were never created to be ruled, but to participate within government. we have our own duties to carry out. We are not to not have a ruling class as other nations did, but have a group of people – some elected, some hired, some contracted – to carry out specific named -in-writing duties of the federal government and within each state’s government. Those people are NOT “the” government, just serve within it. Our government is the US Constitution and all that is in Pursuance thereof it, and each state’s Constitution. That was done so that there would be NO mistaking exactly what those who served within our governments were allowed to do, required to do, forbidden from doing. Read it/them.

    *Dr. Edwin Vieira: “This has nothing to do with personalities or subjective ideas. It’s a matter of what the Constitution provides… The government of the United States has never violated anyone’s constitutional rights… The government of the United States will never violate anyone constitutional rights, because it cannot violate anyone’s constitutional rights. The reason for that is: The government of the United States is that set of actions by public officials that are consistent with the Constitution. Outside of its constitutional powers, the government of the United States has no legitimacy. It has no authority; and, it really even has no existence. It is what lawyers call a legal fiction.”

    Those that serve within our government use “color of law’ to deceive the people and use ignorant LE’s, etc to enforce that ***color of law. That enforcement is **terrorism against the American people.

    ** 28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

    *** Color of law: “The appearance or semblance, without the substance, of legal right. Misuse of power, possessed by virtue of state law and made possible only because wrongdoer is clothed with authority of state, is action taken under “color of law.” Black’s Law Dictionary, Fifth Edition, page 241.

    We have ignorant military that are required to be Oathbound the the US Constitution – hence they should know what is required of them by it – who are following unlawful (and quite possibly treasonous) orders to attack in foreign nations when those who give the orders have NO LAWFUL AUTHORITY TO GIVE THOSE ORDERS.

    The American people are not even informed jurors, yet, as a citizen of this nation they are required to at least read the US Constitution – a very short document. They are also required to train as the Congress requires the military to train, read their own state’s Constitution, and be the Militia (US Constitution, Article 1, Section 8, Clause 15 and the duties that those that serve within the state and federal governments have TO THE Militias is found in Clause 16. It is the American people who are the militia that those who serve within our governments must use to
    — Enforce the US Constitution (supreme Law and all that is in Pursuance thereof it) and each state’s Constitution (Highest Law of the state),
    — Enforce and keep the “Laws of the Union” (which are constitutional laws ONLY),
    — Protect the country against all enemies both domestic and foreign, and
    — “to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”.

    George Washington: “It may be laid down, as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every citizen who enjoys the protection of a free government…, but even of his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50
    Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency.” (“Sentiments on a Peace Establishment”, letter to Alexander Hamilton; “The Writings of George Washington”)

    The enforcement arm of our governments – state and federal – is supposed to be the people, as the Militia.

    For further consideration

    Bertrand Russell,1953: “… Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible…” (“The Impact of Science on Society”, Simon and Schuster, New York, 1953)

    • The Bill of Rights grants certain general prerogatives, liberties, immunities and freedoms to individuals!

      • No, the bill of rights lists those things that the people reserved for themselves, and those that serve within our governments are required to PROTECT them. That is made clear in the many debates and in the Preamble to the Bill of Rights.

        Preamble to the Bill of Rights: Congress OF THE United States begun and held at the City of New York, on Wednesday the Fourth of March, one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine.

        THE Conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order TO PREVENT MISCONSTRUCTION OR ABUSE OF ITS POWERS, THAT FURTHER DECLARATORY AND RESTRICTIVE CLAUSES SHOULD BE ADDED: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution.”

        Dr. Edwin Vieira: “This has nothing to do with personalities or subjective ideas. It’s a
        matter of what the Constitution provides… The government of the United States has never violated anyone’s constitutional rights… The government of the United States will never violate anyone constitutional rights, because it cannot violate anyone’s constitutional rights. The reason for that is: The government of the United States is that set of actions by public officials that are consistent with the Constitution. Outside of its constitutional powers, the government of the United States has no legitimacy. It has no authority; and, it really even has no existence. It is what lawyers call a legal fiction…

        What are the defining characteristics of a limited government? They are its disabilities; what it does not have legal authority to do. LOOK AT THE FIRST AMENDMENT… WHAT DOES IT DO? IT GUARANTEES FREEDOM OF SPEECH, FREEDOM OF PRESS, FREEDOM OF RELIGION. BUT HOW DOES IT DO THAT? I quote: “CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAW ABRIDGING THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH OR OF THE PRESS” etcetera.
        “CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAW;” THAT IS A STATEMENT OF AN ABSENCE OF POWER. That’s a statement of a disability.” (end quote)

        Alexander Hamilton: “There is no position which depends on clearer principles that that every act of a delegated authority, contrary to the commission under which it is exercised, is void. No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid.”

        The US Constitution gives the people nothing, what it does is lay out in writing exactly what those who serve within our government are required to do, allowed to do, forbidden to do.

        Our governments – state and federal – were not created to run our lives but to protect specific parts of our lives, to deal with things that matter across all states; remember, the state still are nations that joined together for better security; just like we have a government that deals with local things – states; and a government that was created to represent all the states in dealing with mostly foreign affairs.

        St John Tucker: “The congress of the United States possesses no power to regulate, or
        interfere with the domestic concerns, or police of any state: it belongs not to them to establish any rules respecting the rights of property; nor will the constitution permit any prohibition of arms to the people;…”

        Justice Sandra Day O’Connor: “The Constitution does not protect the sovereignty of States for the benefit of the States or state governments as abstract political entities, or even for the benefit of the public officials governing the States. To the contrary, the Constitution divides authority between federal and state governments for the protection of individuals. State sovereignty is not just an end in itself: “Rather, federalism secures to citizens the liberties that derive from the diffusion of sovereign power.”

        Mack and Printz v. United States: “The Framers rejected the concept of a central government that would act upon and through the States, and instead designed a system in which the State and Federal Governments would exercise concurrent authority over the people. The Federal Government’s power would be augmented immeasurably and impermissibly if it were able to impress into its service – and at no cost to itself – the police officers of the 50 States… Federal control of state officers would also have an effect upon the separation and equilibration of powers between the three branches of the Federal Government itself.”

        • Just what part of Sandra day O’Connor’s statement “for the protection of individuals” don’t you agree with?

  6. That is how Constitutional rights are lost, by stealth rather than by swat tactics!
