On December 7, 1941 – “A Day That Will Live in Infamy” – the United States lost 2,403 American lives in the surprise Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. That attack and that loss brought the U.S. into WW II. On 11 September 2001, 2,977 people were killed in the Islamic terror attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and on Flight 93 in Pennsylvania. Those attacks launched the U.S. Global War on Terror, which, in one form or other, continues to this day.
In the last two years, between 2020-2022, opioid poisoning became the #1 cause of death for Americans between the ages of 18-45. The majority of those deaths were due to overdosing on fentanyl and other illicit synthetic opioids. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that between February 2021 and February 2022, more than 108,000 people in the U.S. died of drug overdoses. More than 70% of those deaths were due to fentanyl and other synthetic opioids, most of it sourced to China, which collaborates with Hizballah and the Mexican drug cartels. Most of it is trafficked across the U.S.’s wide open southern border with Mexico.
108,000 is nearly 45 times more deaths in America due to illicit narcotics than died in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. 108,000 is about 36 times more deaths in America due to illicit narcotics than died in the 9/11 attacks. The first two attacks launched America into all-out wars that lasted for years. The ongoing, continuous, day-after-day attack on the American people by drug trafficking across our sovereign national border, so far in the Biden administration, has led to nothing. Nothing but denials that it’s even happening.
The Japanese invaded the U.S. on December 7, 1941. Islamic terrorists invaded the U.S. on 9/11. The flood of illegal immigrants, including narcotics traffickers, is invading the United States on a daily basis. Every day. Every day, thousands more pour across the borders of Arizona, California, and Texas especially. This is an invasion and the death toll is not only horrific, but mounting by the day.
The U.S. Constitution deals with invasion of our sovereign territory in a number of places.
Article I, Section 10 asserts that “No State shall, without the Consent of Congress…keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace…or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.”
Article IV, Section 4 states that “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion…”
There can be no argument that southern states of the United States are under invasion. One may credibly argue that the rest of the U.S. is under invasion as well, given that illegal aliens by the hundreds of thousands are transported at U.S. government expense (aka taxpayer expense) to every other state in the Union. There can be no argument that the U.S. federal government, including the Department of Homeland Security, under the Biden administration is not fulfilling its Constitutional obligations to protect the homeland from invasion.
There is one more clause in the U.S. Constitution that applies in such a situation. It is Article II, Section 3, which makes the President of the United States the senior law enforcement official in the country. It asserts that “he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed”…which obligation this President willfully has abrogated.
Article II, Section 4 follows and provides the Constitutional remedy in such situation: “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors“.
Failing utterly and willfully, as a matter of actual policy, to defend the States of this Union from invasion surely must rise to the level of “high Crimes and Misdemeanors”.
