10th Amendment on Presidential Powers; Destruction of Food Crime Against Humanity
by Basic Education
Monday Apr 13th, 2020 6:19 PM
Contrary to Nazi Trump, his powers are limited by the 10th Amendment to the Constitution. Meanwhile, neither he nor any governor is buying the vegetables and milk being destroyed by farmers who lost schools and restaurant customers and donating the food and milk to food banks where millions of starving people line up every day for food, or what is left of the food since the food banks are running out of food.
Contrary to Nazi Trump, his powers are limited by the 10th Amendment to the Constitution. Meanwhile, neither he nor any governor is buying the vegetables and milk being destroyed by farmers who lost schools and restaurant customers and donating the food and milk to food banks where millions of starving people line up every day for food, or what is left of the food since the food banks are running out of food.

Let's begin with the US Constitution, hammered into our heads in 8th Grade Civics, 10th Grade US History and an entire year of 12th Grade US Government. And of course, every lawyer has the entire Constitution hammered into their heads so they know it verbatim in law school. It reads as follows:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

See https://constitution.findlaw.com/amendment10.html

Most laws such as regulating bars and restaurants, are state laws. The same is true of most of the response we have seen to the COVID19 pandemic by the states.

It does not take a law for the president or any governor to buy all the surplus food and milk being destroyed by farmers because they have lost the schools and restaurants as customers, and distribute the surplus food and milk to the food banks which are desperate for donations to give to the millions of people who have no jobs and therefore no income since 80% of Americans live from paycheck to paycheck and no one has received any stimulus or unemployment compensation yet. The stimulus of $1200 per person will not last either.

We are watching the attempt to set up a presidential dictatorship by Nazi Trump, without feeding the hungry, housing the homeless, or healing the sick with our tax dollars. Meanwhile, the state governments are dragging their feet on reopening the economy. At the very least, they should be buying all the surplus food and milk and giving it to food banks. That will certainly save millions of lives immediately.
