JEFF LEWIS BIOGRAPHY
Jeff Lewis is founder of Patriot Watchdog, co-founder and National Director of the Patriot Coalition, and National Director of the Federal Immigration Reform and Enforcement Coalition, aka FIRE Coalition. As a four-time cancer survivor, and veteran of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, Jeff knows personally a thing or two about defending life and liberty. There can be no honorable "pursuits of happiness" without defending our God-given inalienable rights, and there can be no honor without giving our "all" to preserve the Blessings of Liberty our Constitutional Republic provides.
Jeff Lewis Heads Up The Largest "Nativist Extremist" Group States Department Of Homeland Security's Advisory Council On Countering Violent Extremism
According to members of the of the DHS Advisory Council on Countering Violent Extremism, Jeff heads up the largest "nativist extremist" group in the country, FIRE Coalition, as reported in the Spring 2012 SPLC Intelligence Report: "Nativist Movement Collapses Amid Infighting." Of course, according to DHS, anyone who believes in the Constitution, limited government, and the Bill of Rights is a "right-wing extremist." Over the past seven years Jeff has testified before state legislatures across the country, consulted and advised federal, state, and local candidates for office on immigration, national security, and Constitutional issues including presidential candidates in the 2008 and 2012 elections, hosted National Security Conferences across the country, and worked tirelessly with Members of Congress, law enforcement, and his favorite demographic: Joe and Jane "Citizen." Jeff's motto: "To a patriot, defending life and liberty IS the pursuit of happiness!" The national coalitions that Jeff leads have active legislation and resolutions in Congress, as well as in state and local governments across the country, all of which are intended to restore constitutional governance and law and order to our once-great Republic.

CONGRESSIONAL BRIEFING ON
RESTORING CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNANCE
Thursday, Feb. 17, 2011, 9:30a.m. – 10:30a.m.
House Judiciary Sub-Committee
Room 2226, Rayburn HOB
Contact: Jeff Lewis [masked]
ORIGINAL JURISDICTION: ARTICLE III, SECTION 2, CLAUSE 2
For the past several decades, through a variety of misguided citations of case law, and compounded by the support of unconstitutional federal statutes, a regularity of usurping a State's right to have its grievances heard before an appropriate court has been facilitated. Cases in which States are a Party belong in the Supreme Court.
On Thursday, Feb. 18, 2011, the Patriot Coalition and FIRE Coalition held a Restoring Constitutional Governance briefing in the House Judiciary Sub-Committee Chambers, Room 2226 Rayburn HOB to draw attention to this usurpation and others. The Founding Fathers provided a means by which we could amend the Constitution ratified by the several States within Article V. The methods ratified do not include judicial or Congressional activism.
Simply read the U.S. Constitution, Article III, Section 2, Clause 2. It means what it says.
The U.S. Constitution is NOT a contract/compact between the federal government and the States, but is THE contract between the several sovereign States that gave license to a federal government to perform certain enumerated functions on behalf of the States.
In "Cohens v. Virginia," Supreme Court Chief Justice Marshall stated the following:
“The people made the Constitution, and the people can unmake it. It is the creature of their will, and lives only by their will. But this supreme and irresistible power to make or to unmake resides only in the whole body of the people, not in any subdivision of them. The attempt of any of the parts to exercise it is usurpation, and ought to be repelled by those to whom the people have delegated their power of repelling it."
Chief Justice Marshall went on to say:
"It is most true that this Court will not take jurisdiction if it should not; but it is equally true that it must take jurisdiction if it should. The judiciary cannot, as the legislature may, avoid a measure because it approaches the confines of the Constitution. We cannot pass it by because it is doubtful. With whatever doubts, with whatever difficulties, a case may be attended, we must decide it if it be brought before us. We have no more right to decline the exercise of jurisdiction which is given than to usurp that which is not given. The one or the other would be treason to the Constitution." –Supreme Court Chief Justice Marshall
STATUTORY CHANGES THAT ARE NEEDED TO:
RESTORE CONSTITUTIONAL COMPLIANCE & PROTECT STATES’ RIGHTS:
TITLE 28 > PART IV > CHAPTER 81 > § 1251. Original jurisdiction
(a) The Supreme Court shall have original and exclusive jurisdiction of all controversies between two or more States.
(b) The Supreme Court shall have original but not exclusive jurisdiction of:
(1) All actions or proceedings to which ambassadors, other public ministers, consuls, or vice consuls of foreign states are parties;
(2) All controversies between the United States and a State;
(3) All actions or proceedings by a State against the citizens of another State or against aliens.
To be compliant with U.S. Constitution, § 1251 should read:

[Part (b) should be stricken in its entirety.]
TITLE 28 > PART IV > CHAPTER 85 > § 1331. Federal question
The district courts shall have original jurisdiction of all civil actions arising under the Constitution, laws, or treaties of the United States.
To be compliant with U.S. Constitution, § 1331 should read:
The district courts shall have original jurisdiction of all civil actions arising under the Constitution, laws, or treaties of the United States, except those affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers, and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party.
[See U.S. Constitution, Article III, Section 2, Clause 2.]
TITLE 28 > PART IV > CHAPTER 85 > § 1345. United States as plaintiff
Except as otherwise provided by Act of Congress, the district courts shall have original jurisdiction of all civil actions, suits or proceedings commenced by the United States, or by any agency or officer thereof expressly authorized to sue by Act of Congress.
To be compliant with U.S. Constitution, § 1345 should read:
Except as otherwise provided by Act of Congress, the district courts shall have original jurisdiction of all civil actions, suits or proceedings commenced by the United States, or by any agency or officer thereof expressly authorized to sue by Act of Congress, not to include those affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers, and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party.
Restoring Constitutional governance requires that the below federal statutes be brought back into compliance with the Constitution. It’s time for our elected officials to keep their oath to support and DEFEND the Constitution.
