SCOTUS Gets It Wrong - Texas Has the Constitutional Right to Defend Itself From Invasion

To be fair, the High Court didn't say Texas can't defend itself.  It just wrongly allowed the federal government to use its Border Patrol to, you know, take down border protection measures placed there by Texas.  There has been some discussion of what Texas can legally do when the federal government shirks its responsibility to defend States or, as is the case, aids in the invasion of those States.

And the Constitution itself has made it clear that Texas has every right to repel invaders.

Article I, Section 10 of the Constitution of the United States reads:

No State shall...engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.

Heartened to see the Governor of Texas just explained this fact correctly citing our Supreme Law of the land.  I hope to see Texas live up to its reputation against the lawless thugs currently occupying federal office.

For those who quibble with the term invasion, please comment with your home address so that millions of illegal aliens might break into your home illegally, since many of them are running out of public schools and police stations to camp out in.

I know you won't mind since you won't consider that an invasion of your home or property.

For those who are not idiots, who remember 9/11, who have recently been groped by TSA thugs while a Chinese spy balloon flew overhead, we understand what an invasion is.  As do these FBI agents.

Regardless of your take on the level of threat presented by this invasion, the Constitutional authority of Texas to repel it is not in question.

But of course there will always be morons like Sua Sponte, who says he's not the person charged to interpret the Constitution, but when his partisan political hack bat signal is turned on and he has a chance to once again fail to protect the nation and disgrace his uniform, quickly posts that the Supremacy Clause is somehow implicated here.

News flash, it's not.

But Sua Stupidity has done his actual job well as even those who "disagree" with him have swallowed his utterly incorrect premise that States don't have a constitutional right to defend themselves.  He is one god awful lawyer (as most of them are), but he's a great propagandist.  Especially when talking with military officers who merely mouthed their oaths to the Constitution and stand ready to violate the rights of Americans because they have a credit card bill.
