Constitution Day 2020

Constitution Day 2020This year has been one for the books, a year where our Constitutionally guaranteed rights have been neglected, abused and even taken away.

Here we will take a closer look at violations of our “Supreme Law of the Land.”

There have been certain states and cities where the issued orders and mandates border on, or cross over into, draconian and tyrannical rule – the precise actions our Founders fought against, and the very reasons they created our U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights to ensure protection exists.

Three of the worst have been California, New York and Pennsylvania. But, rest assured, there are others.

Here is the bottom line of our “Unconstitutional 2020” …

1. Limiting the size of gatherings and congregations violate the right to peaceably assemble, guaranteed in our 1st Amendment.

2. Ordering Citizens to stay home and closing “non-essential” businesses violates due process, as guaranteed in our 14th Amendment.

3. And, closing of these businesses also violates the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment.

Peaceably to Assemble - ChicagoNot to mention that there are elected officials who condone and/or encourage, and do not put an end to, the riots, looting and personal harm, injury and senseless murder. Their inaction, condoning or encouraging such violates their own Oath of Office to “support and defend” our U.S. Constitution, specifically Article I Section 8 where it is up to them to “suppress Insurrections.”

That same Article charges Congress to provide for the “general welfare” of America. And, to be clear, welfare in our U.S. Constitution does not mean providing money to people … it means, “Exemption from misfortune, sickness, calamity or evil; the enjoyment of health and the common blessings of life; prosperity; happiness; applied to persons” (Webster’s 1828 Dictionary of the English Language).

Their callous, lax attitude in the face of the violent protests is cause for them to be expelled. As per our laws. Period.

Federal law, specifically 18 United States Code 1918, provides the penalties for violation of the Oath of Office described in 5 U.S.C. 7311 and specifically includes: (1) removal from office and; (2) confinement or a fine.

At least there appears to be a light at the end of this seemingly endless, dark tunnel.

Recently, a Federal Judge ruled in favor of businesses, four counties, as well as some state legislators, against the rules and orders set down by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolfe during this Covid-19 period, basically citing 1 through 3 above.

And, Attorney General William Barr has informed state and local prosecutors that they can bring charges of sedition against violent protestors.

Scale of 1 to 1984 - George WashingtonAll Americans should be very concerned where are civil liberties are not only put at risk, but are taken away.

However, there are many Citizens who do not know what their rights are, that they are unalienable (cannot be given away or taken away).

It is up to We the People to ensure that our Liberty stays put.

As principal author of our Declaration of Independence and third president Thomas Jefferson said, “Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.”

Know your rights … only then can you protect your rights.

In Search of Liberty – An EduDramedy Movie

An Edu–what??  An Educational Dramatic Comedy, a full-length motion picture that not only educates but is highly entertaining.  It is so unique that the term – EduDramedy™ – had to be coined.

IC Liberty Films LLC is an independent movie marketing and distribution company founded by producer and director Norm Novitsky and the first film being distributed in this newly developed genre is In Search of Liberty.

In the family-friendly movie, a captivating statesman from America’s past takes a modern-day family on a series of wild adventures.  With a spicy mix of humor, magic and logic, he opens their eyes to the origins and importance of the U.S. Constitution, the degree to which it is under attack today and what can and must be done to save it.

Key aspects of the Constitution are clearly outlined and important Amendments—such as those guaranteeing freedom of religion and speech, the right to bear arms, warrants for search and seizure, and more—are shown to be vital in everyday life.

An ensemble cast of veteran and new talent from stage, film, television and lifestyle entertainment bring to life this family-friendly educational adventure about the U.S. Constitution.

The film features Jimmy Hagar, accomplished stage, TV and movie actor; Bobby Deen, a familiar face on numerous cooking shows and the son of American celebrity chef Paula Deen; Karen Boles, publisher and talented movie, TV and voiceover actress; and Simone Griffeth, who starred alongside David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone in “Death Race 2000.”  In addition, brother and sister Kayla and Tyler Huth, of TV’s “Rays Rookies” and “Manhunt Unibomber” respectively, and who both appear in “No Place in this World,” have starring roles.

The movie is available on BluRay, DVD and Digital HD.

Constitution Day 2017

Gadsden Flag - Don't Tread On MeWith many of our rights and freedoms under assault at this time, it makes sense to honor our Founding Fathers for the work that they did over two centuries ago.

When they had experienced enough tyranny from King George III of England, when their pleas and requests were shunned or ignored, when the Brits ordered trade blockades, and more, much much more, they went to war and drafted and signed the Declaration of Independence, on July 4, 1776.  They did so knowing full well that it would mean losing everything if the Revolutionary War was lost.  But America prevailed.  It won its freedom.

They were quite learned men, many of them knew historically what had made for good and for bad governments, knowing full well that a good government was one that did not encroach upon the citizenry.  Yes, they haggled and argued and compromised.  But they never lost sight of the end result and that was the United States Constitution, formally signed exactly 230 years ago today, on September 17, 1787.

The document that our Founding Fathers created and signed was like no other ever devised, especially when the Bill of Rights was added on December 15, 1791.  Our freedom, as long as the US Constitution is followed, is guaranteed.

Signing_of_the_Constitution_of_the_United_StatesThere are those who question a document 200+ years old and how it can be relevant today.  There is an easy answer.  In the manner in which it was written.  There were no time-specific conditions, other than handling the then-current debt.  The Constitution and the Bill of Rights were created by forward-looking men, men who knew the world would change and provided us with something that could and would grow with us.

It is unfortunate, however, that we have allowed that precious document to be “interpreted” to mean what it does not say.  As one example, when the Courts decided that prayers could not be said in school those justices were violating our Constitution.  If there are some who do not wish to pray in school, that is fine.  But there is nothing unconstitutional about saying prayer in school.  Period.

Losing that portion of one of our rights should infuriate any Patriot because what follows is that there are other rights, other freedoms that get taken from us, gradually and (now) generally under the guise of “national security.”  We need to watch our present-day politicians, as they are not statesmen of 200 years  ago who carry on open discussion, and even arguments, to reach a consensus of what is right “for the people.”  No, politicians of today are bought and paid for by myriad individuals and concerns.

Forgive me as I have strayed from my original thought, thanking our Founding Fathers for their excellent work.  For their work should be admired as much as it should be followed.  Incredible documents outlining our rights, our freedoms, our liberty.

In our movie, In Search of Liberty, we educate all Americans, in a dramatic yet humorous manner, the basics of what exactly the US Constitution and Bill of Rights guarantee us, i.e., “We the People.”  All those who have viewed it come away new information they did not know before and with a renewed sense of both pride and purpose as an American.
