Re: Vote on Washington DC statehood schedule for today!
Total bs

The whole purpose if having dc was to keep it a separate entity from the states

Puerto rico is next
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 17791922


The DC thing is ludicrous; every major city in America will do the same thing if this goes through.
PR isn't such a well defined no. They have been arguing statehood for decades. I think we now know why they have allowed the Island to go to complete shit especially after the last big storm.

Americans pay a percentage of their taxes to the Queen of England via the IRS. The IRS is not an agency of the Federal Government.
It is an agency of the International Monetary Fund which is an agency of the United Nations. No law has ever been passed legalizing the charging of income tax. The 1040 tax form is the payment of a foreign tax to the King/Queen of England.
American citizens have been in financial servitude to the British Monarch since the Treaty of 1783 and the War of Dependence.

Puerto Rico has voted against becoming a state every time is has come to a vote. I don't think it will happen.

They have always been broke as fuck. The politicians and police are more corrupt than ours, think libiot democrat but worse.

PR has another problem that people generally don't know about, that is illegal immigrants from The Dominican Republic.

All of the PR people I know left there and came here because the crime is rampant and over 2/3s of the country is on welfare. In fact, their cost of welfare each year is MORE than their GDP.


Previous referendums
Main article: List of Puerto Rican status referendums
Puerto Rico has had five previous referendums on its status.[8] A vote in 1967 rejected statehood.[9] The next three referendums produced no clear majorities.[4] The non-binding 2017 referendum was in favor of statehood, but had only a 23% turnout.[3]

Well the Dems know how to stack the deck and for decades this idea has been highly debated but now w woke culture and do what ever is necessary to crush the resistance the house will vote on an historic moment to add DC as a 51 state of the union.

Granting DC two senators and one additional congressional seat.
This will have to move on to the senate for approval.
The President is strongly urging this vote to take place now.

Why everyone is focused on the “bad boys” of Blue the real steal is taking place in every way possible. This is the plan.

Everyone was waiting on the Supreme Court to be stacked but first the communist must have absolute control to make up or change what ever rule is necessary.

Then they will go after the courts.

Re: Vote on Washington DC statehood schedule for today!
Simple majority is needed once the proposed states constitution is approved and any conditions set by Congress are agreed to.

However there are numerous Constitutional questions that need to be resolved. Also there is a question of the states viability. Washington is basically a company town with no agriculture or manufacturing or industry.

Currently the Congress allocates 600,000,000 dollars to the district for costs of maintaining the district and it's infrastructure. The new state could never raise that revenue via taxes so is the gov't suppose to continue that payment (which they do not give to any other state).The Framers wanted a separate area, controlled by Congress, so they would not have to be dependent, beholding or held hostage to any state. What's to prevent the new state from cutting off or limiting services if they don't like the current administration?

Article IV, Section 3, which provides that no new state may be created out of the territory of an existing state without that state's permission. Maryland ceded it's land explicitly to create a seat of government not to create a new State. Maryland's permission would be required.

The 23rd amendment would need to be repealed as this specifically established DC as constitutional entity. The language of the amendment obviously recognizes an existing district of government of a particular size. And it refers to the District as a permanent constitutional entity.
Under the Constitution, if D.C. were to become a state it must be through the amendment process.

Only the people of the 50 states can approve this change to Washington and the Constitution that created the seat of government.

The constitution requires Washing DC district as separate
and NOT a State.

However, it does NOT define the size of the district.

Therefore, the Dems can simply shrink the District to
include the White House and Congress, and a few blocks
(for example) as Washington, District of Columbia.

The rest of the old district now is to be named
"Washington Douglas Commonwealth", and vote on this area
to be the 51st state.

No constitutional amendment needed.

It's and end around.

Next up, Puerto Rico.

We are then officially a banana republic.

 Quoting: Larphillips



1871 – the District of Columbia Incorporation Act of 1871 was passed by Congress, creating a municipal government as a privately owned corporation that took control of D.C. In subsequent statutes in 1882 and later passed by Congress, the federal government became, in fact , the private, foreign corporation called the "United States" incorporated in 1868 and based in Washington, D.C. Further, in subsequent statutes the term "United States" meant ONLY the "District of Columbia"; NOT the various states of the Union under the Constitution.

Therefore, all U.S. citizens [i.e. citizens of the District of Columbia] residing in one of the states of the Union, are classified as property and franchisees of the federal government, and as an “individual entity.” See Wheeling Steel Corp. v. Fox 298 U.S. 193, 80 L.Ed. 1143, 56 S.Ct. 773. Under the “Buck Act,” 4 U.S.C Secs. 105-113, the federal government has created a “Federal area” within the boundaries of the several states. This area is similar to any territory that the federal government acquires through purchase, conquest or treaty, thereby imposing federal territorial law upon the people in this “Federal area.” Federal territorial law is evidenced by the Executive Branch’s Admiralty flag (a federal flag with a gold or yellow fringe on it) flying in schools, offices and courtrooms.

All acts of Congress are territorial in nature and can only apply within the territorial jurisdiction of Congress. See American Banana Co. v. United fruit Co., 213 U.S. 347, 356-357 (1909); U.S. v. Spelar, 338 U.S. 217, 222, 94 L.Ed. 3, 70 S.Ct. 402 (1925).

There has been created a fictional federal “State (of) within a state.” See Howard v. Sinking Fund of Louisville, 344 U.S. 624, 73 S.Ct. 465, 476, 97 L.Ed. 617 (1953); Schwarts v. O’Hara TP School District, 100 A 2d. 621, 625, 375, Pa. 440. Compare also 31 C.F.R. Parts 51.2 and 52.2, which also identify a fictional State within a state.
