Annulments of the Constitution
Part I
Insurrection in Government
***

Article. I.
    Section. 1.
        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.

Henry's comments on annulment of Article I, Section 1:

1. The congress (nor any branch) may not delegate its assigned powers.
For example, The Executive may not commit the nation to war. The Congress may not delegate to the Executive the warmaking decisions of the Union.

Only the (states in) Congress have the power "To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offences against the Law of Nations: and "To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water". (Article I, Section 8)

From these limited powers with the character of war, it is the duty and power only of the Congress to initiate and direct the Executive to execute the duties of Article IV, Section 4, Section. 4: "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence." or the powers of Article I, Section 8 (above).

2. The congress (any branch) may not exercise powers not granted, nor powers which are denied them by the constitution.
The violations by the Congress of the first and second amendments are too obvious and numerous to mention. The Congress amplifies their own violations by encouraging similar and supplementary violations within the states by their own governments.
3. The congress (nor any branch) may not expand the powers delegated to their authority.
For example, the Congress may not regulate commerce within the exterior boundaries of a state, because they are only authorized by Article I, Section 8, "To regulate Commerce ... among the several States ...".

This power has been unlawfully expanded to interpose the federal government between the Citizens in the states and most ordinary daily commerce where the federal government has no interest and no authority.

4. The congress (nor any branch) may not create new powers not granted or denied to their authority.
All branches of the federal government have abused the concept of implied powers in unauthorized expansion of powers beyond the necessity of enumerated duties.
