Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
"When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty."
It just seems suspicious to me that we have had such a rash of these type problems recently.
Perhaps this administration is testing to see how far it can go with what appears to be overreach? We have seen that the laws they don't agree with tend to be ignored, or skirted around. Plus it tends to clog up the legal system. It will be interesting to watch!
Military is not limited to "defense of borders". If it comes down to it, the argument could be made that the issue falls under federal jurisdiction via military purposes.Actually, those agents claimed authority under EPA policies and were citing federal law left and right but it doesn't matter, if the law has no authority, they have no authority.
The states could technically hang these agents for "attempt to overthrow" if they so wanted to and the fed couldn't do a thing about it. The only exception would be if the agents were acting with full authority under legitimate federal purview such as the IRS(taxes), and Military under legitimate defense of borders, etc.
I'm not familiar with the event, but what you describe does not negate the possibility that the reverse could occur, nor does it provide any evidence that the reverse is impossible.It wasn't an analogy, it was a real event. The agents were following the letter of federal law and much like most of those morons were in the way, Nungesser flat told them to stand down or rot in jail awaiting felony charges.
