A federal judge just lifted the airline mask mandate. It shouldn't have happened.

Published in Blog on April 19, 2022 by Article V Patriot

A federal judge ruled this week that President Joe Biden's mask mandate on domestic air travel is illegal. 

The Trump-appointed federal judge called the mandate "unlawful" and vacated the requirement, writing, "Because our system does not permit agencies to act unlawfully even in pursuit of desirable ends, the court declares unlawful and vacates the mask mandate."

This is a win for liberty-loving Americans everywhere. The CDC's requirement was unconstitutional, and now that COVID numbers are dwindling, they no longer have even the "public health" excuse.

The ruling is good, but it should never have happened. Why? Because the president should never have issued the mandate in the first place.

In our constitutional republic, the head executive should not have the power to create law. He or she should only have the power to enforce law. If Congress refuses to mandate masks on airplanes, the president can't step in with his regulatory agencies and impose that requirement.

Unfortunately, thanks to the last 100 years of judicial activism, the president has been empowered to act outside the will of Congress. He issues unconstitutional executive orders on a regular basis, and his Deep State operatives craft "regulations" that are nothing less than laws.

We the People must now rely on the good will and good judgment of the courts. We rely on the Supreme Court and lower federal courts to strike down unconstitutional mandates because many Americans don't believe they have any other recourse. In this case, the judge made the right decision. But what about the next nationwide unconstitutional mandate? Will the judge in the case vote in accordance with our founding principles?

We shouldn't have to trust the courts to maintain our constitutional republic. We must limit the president's power once and for all, and the best way to do that is by calling an Article V Convention of States.

A Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments. These amendments can limit the president's power by outlawing executive orders, reducing the size and jurisdiction of the federal bureaucracy, and clarifying that Congress -- and only Congress -- can create laws.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
