In a Republic the law is the Supreme Ruler of the Land. In our Republic the law is written, and we call that document the Constitution. That would make the Constitution the Supreme Ruler of the Land. Article I and Section I of the Constitution states: “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”
LEGISLATIVE POWER. The authority under the constitution to make laws and to alter or repeal them.
Article II of the Constitution is the Article that defines the executive branch of government. In Section II of said Article, the powers the executive has are listed:
“The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.
He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.
The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.”
The executive is not given the power to legislate or make law.
Yet today, we have congress, the legislative branch telling the executive branch that a declaration of the executive branch is not acceptable, and it is assumed that the denunciation passed by congress can be overridden with a veto. This would give ultimate legislative power to the executive branch. That is dictatorship.
The Senate approved a resolution on Wednesday that aims to reverse a Biden administration rule on environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing, setting up what could be the first veto of Biden’s presidency.
The Senate voted 50-46 to block the ESG rule, with two Democrats, Sens. Joe Manchin (W.Va.) and Jon Tester (Mont.), joining Republicans in opposing the Biden administration policy.
The measure already passed the House on Tuesday and will now head to Biden’s desk. The White House has said that Biden would veto the resolution.
This is saying that the executive branch has dictatorial power, it is saying that congress does not have the power to override a rule or executive order. Again, that is dictatorship.
