Proof! The Constitution gives rights only to Americans, not others

March 18, 2017

- by Cicero

The Constitution itself limits its rights to the American people and excludes its protections from non-Americans. Fasten your seat belts, because this will shock many of you.

The "Great Melting Pot" reflects the marvel of the world that people from all European nations could get along in the United States but not in Europe. It was a wonder of the world that we all had so much in common religiously, culturally, historically, and ethnically but could not get along until we came to America. This is the American Dream. It never has had anything to do with becoming the world's emergency room for every refugee that finds himself in an abusive relationship with his government.

What Marxists hope you do not realize is that the Preamble to the Constitution was ratified every bit as much as the seven Articles and the Bill of Rights. There is a reason Marxists want to silence the single sentence known as the Preamble. This one sentence is as clear as the English language can be that American charity starts at home and pretty much ends at our shores. Here is the most important sentence in the entire Constitution:

“We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Did you catch all of that? That one sentence, each word of which was scrutinized and weighed and ratified, explains five times that the Constitution is for Americans and not others. Here is what the Founders said and what Marxists hate:

1) “We the people of the United States.” Can English speakers be any clearer whom the Constitution is about than “We the people of the United States?” It is like starting a letter, “Dear Americans.” What follows is for Americans and not any other nationals. Our federal laws make it a crime to take another person's mail. Taking another people's constitution is an even greater injustice. But wait, there’s more.

2) “In order to …  insure domestic Tranquility,” is clearly referring to the homeland. “Domestic” is in contrast with “foreign.” Can you read this phrase in a way that does not say the Constitution is for the homeland and not for people from other lands?

3) “In order to … secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves,” is a clear declaration that the Constitution is for “OURSELVES” – “the people of the United States.” Securing liberty from the Constitution is for a people who are already Americans, not for foreigners or immigrants no matter how wretched they are or how much merit they seem to have.

4) “In order to … secure the Blessings of Liberty to … OUR POSTERITY,” is the clearest phrase in English to communicate that the Constitution is for the Founders descendants. “Posterity” in the Preamble secures liberty to American generations that would be part of “the people of the United States” by birth; the Constitution does not secure liberty to anyone else.

5) “This Constitution for the United States of America,” is excruciatingly clear that the Constitution is “For the United States of America.” Are you from a country not called “the United States of America?” This Constitution does not apply to you. Are you a dreamer who hopes to come to "the United States of America" and receive the blessings of its liberty? This Constitution does not apply to you. Are you a citizen of "the United States of America?" This Constitution applies to you.

Why on earth would these Founders who had risked their lives, net worth, and reputations insist that the Constitution be preceded by one sentence that declares five times that it applies to Americans only and not to anyone else?  What were they trying to permanently record for us to know? It is worth pausing to think about, because the implications are seismic.

The Founders were pretty good at making their ideas clear and they leave no doubt about this matter later in the Constitution itself as well as earlier in the Declaration of Independence.

First, look at the Declaration of Independence. It was written in 1776, thirteen years before the Constitution. Again, the first sentence is the key to understanding the rest of the document.

The first sentence of the Declaration is, “When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

1) “When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another,” clearly indicates that there are times when it becomes necessary for a people to dissolve their connection with their government. The Americans clearly stated that it is necessary for each group of people to do the hard work of ensuring their own independence from tyrants.

2) “It becomes necessary for one people … to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them,” is a clear statement that it is necessary for the people who are oppressed to secure their Natural rights for themselves, if they want an equal station among mankind. Otherwise, they do not deserve to be treated equally with free people who have paid for their blessed way of life in blood.

3) “A decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation,” is a clear statement that decent people that respect humanity will be impelled (and are required) to make their own declaration of independence from those who oppress them in their own country and not to continue waving the flag that they claim to have fled from. They can request help from other free nations, as the United States did from France, but they must be adults and pay the bloody cost of freedom themselves in their own land - the land were their fathers died, the land of their pilgrims pride, etc.

So, in one sentence the Founders declared three times that America must secure its own freedom, no other people had a duty to secure our liberty, and America was not meant to secure liberty for any other people.

But wait, there’s more.

Later in the Declaration of Independence, the Founders wrote, “Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of [Natural Rights], it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it.” Any oppressed people have the right to change their own government in a way that will secure their liberty. A little later in the Declaration the Americans wrote, “When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their RIGHT, it is their DUTY, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.” The Founders wrote as clearly as possible that it is not only the RIGHT of people to make their own government better, it is THEIR duty to do so. The  American Founders documented that America had neither the right nor the duty to “provide new Guards” for any other people, no matter how heart-wrenching their circumstances appeared. In other words, America had no business coddling mass migration of people fleeing their duty in the world.

Also in the Declaration is the foundation of much of the later Preamble to the Constitution. The Americans wrote, “We have conjured [the British] by the ties of our common KINDRED to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of CONSANGUINITY.” Think about what they wrote for a moment. Then let it soak in. Open your mind to the truth.

The Declaration documents for all time “ties of our common KINDRED” and “the voice of justice and of ”CONSANGUINITY" was very important in what they were doing. “Common KINDRED” and “CONSANGUINITY” are as clear as you can get in English to mean blood relatives. To the Founders, one of the justifications for declaring independence and waging the Revolutionary War was that the British did not “secure the Blessings of Liberty" to their own KINDRED - to their blood relatives. Because of that, Americans were establishing a government that would, “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our POSTERITY” - but not the whole world.

America was established to secure liberty for Americans. Period. American values clearly state that if other people are being oppressed, it is THEIR duty to change their own government to one that will secure their Natural Rights.

When federal courts like the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals sanctimoniously try to bestow Constitutional rights upon non-Americans, they reveal their animus toward American values, the Constitution, and Western civilization. Hell hath no fury like a judge scorned by Western virtue.

Now, for the Constitution itself. Article I, section 8 begins, “The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a Tax or duty may be imposed on such importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each Person.” The Constitution considered what is now called “sanctuary cities.” Since the Constitution went into effect in 1789 and Article I, section 8 allowed the states to allow anyone in their boundaries that they “shall think proper,” the “sanctuary city” idea was allowed for only 19 years. Everyone agreed that in 1808, Congress alone would determine who could become American and share its liberty.

Article I, section 8 of the Constitution says, “The Congress shall have Power … To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization.” So, after 1808, Congress alone was to have the power to secure American liberty to others that were not related by blood to the Founders. No matter how oppressed someone was or how desperate any “huddled mass” was to come to America, it was not up to them. The Constitution was for Americans, and only Congress could bring others under its protection. The poem on the Statue of Liberty is not a legal or founding document. It is not an official statement of American values at all.

This is sufficient to prove the point to a candid world.
