Decentralize Today: As Interpreted By Donald Trump, The National Emergencies Act Is Unconstitutional
Under Art. I, Sec. 9, the President cannot legally spend any Gov’t money except pursuant to an authorization passed by CongressBy David Grace (www.DavidGraceAuthor.com)The first three articles of the Constitution, respectively, describe the powers of Congress, the President and the Judiciary.Let’s take a look at the powers that the Constitution gives to Congress and to the President.— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — —The Powers of CongressArticle ISection 1. All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States. . .Section 7. All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other Bills.Section 8. The Congress shall have powerto lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises,to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States;. . .To make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers, and all other powers vested by this Constitution in the government of the United States, or in any department or officer thereof.Section 9.. . .No money shall be drawn from the treasury, but in consequence of appropriations made by law.The Powers Of The PresidentArticle IISection 1. The executive power shall be vested in a President of the United States of AmericaSection 2. The President shall be commander in chief of the Army and Navy of the United StatesHe shall have power, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to make treaties . . . and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States,— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — —That’s all the power the Constitution gives to the President. That’s it.The Constitution Gives Congress, Not The President, Primary PowerUnder the Constitution, the Congress makes all laws, appropriates all money, levies all taxes, and does everything Congress deems necessary for common defense and the general welfare of the United States, and Congress, not the President, possesses all other powers vested by this Constitution in the government of the United States. (Article I, Section 8)The government of the United States may not spend any money except to the extent that the money has first been legally appropriated by Congress. (Article I, Section 9)That means that the President cannot legally spend any government money except pursuant to an authorization passed by Congress.Congress Cannot Change The Constitution With A Simple LawArticle V governs amendments to the Constitution which must be approved by three-fourths of the states.On its own, Congress cannot change the Constitution.Congress Cannot Voluntarily Give Its Power To The PresidentCongress could not pass a valid law giving away any of its constitutionally-granted powers to the President even if it wanted to.That means that Congress cannot pass a valid law saying that the President can make laws, appropriate money, or spend money that had not first been appropriated by Congress.The President Cannot Spend Money Appropriated For One Thing On Another ThingIf Congress passed a law appropriating $1 billion dollars for, say, flood relief, it would be unconstitutional for the President to instead spend that money to buy military equipment, because money can only be spent “in consequence of appropriations made by law” (Article I, Section 9) and the Constitution grants to Congress, not the President, the power “to make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers.” (Article I, Section 8)Congress Cannot Give The President A Slush FundCongress cannot constitutionally give the President the authority to spend money from a slush fund because “All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress” (Article I, Section 1) and “the Congress shall have power . . . to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises . . . to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States” (Article I, Section 8)Any law that said that the President could take money appropriated by Congress for one use and spend it for some other purpose chosen by the President in his/her discretion would be, on its face, unconstitutional as a violation of Article I’s grant of all legislative power solely to Congress.Any law that might seek to appropriate money for a slush fund that could be spent by the President in his/her discretion would similarly be unconstitutional as an attempt to grant powers to the President that Article I of the Constitution vests solely in Congress.If Trump Is Right About What He Is Authorized To Do Under The National Emergencies Act, Then That Law Is UnconstitutionalTo the extent that the National Emergencies Act purports to give the President the power to take money appropriated by Congress for the construction of military bases or take money that the Treasury obtained from drug seizures and spend it on a wall or any other project the President might pick, the Act is unconstitutional because it would purport to give the President the right to violate Article I, Section 9’s requirement that “No money shall be drawn from the treasury, but in consequence of appropriations made by law” and Section 8’s provision that Congress, not the President, shall have the power “to make all laws.”The Difference Between A Dictatorship And A Constitutional GovernmentIn a monarchy or a dictatorship, the King makes the laws and spends the money.Under our constitutional system, Congress, and only Congress, makes the laws, and the Executive branch is only empowered to implement those laws in conformance with how Congress has drafted them.No matter how important some project may be, it cannot be funded or completed except to the extent that the Congress has passed a law authorizing that spending.No matter how important some project may be, if the Congress has refused to fund that project, government money cannot constitutionally be spent on it.The glaring fact that the current occupant of the White House has egregiously failed to understand is that he is a President, not a King.– David Grace (www.DavidGraceAuthor.com)To see a searchable list of all David Grace’s columns in chronological order, CLICK HEREAs Interpreted By Donald Trump, The National Emergencies Act Is Unconstitutional was originally published in Decentralize Today on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
Dr. Moody Alam is joining IOTA as Director of Research. In this role, Moody will focus on overseeing research at the IOTA Foundation.Dr. Moody Alam is a Chartered Scientist (CSci) with the UK Science Council, and a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) and British Computer Society (BCS). He has been a Visiting Professor in Pakistan and was formerly a Principal Researcher at the University of Oxford. He holds a Ph.D. in Distributed Artificial Intelligence and specializes in designing decentralized protocols for intelligent systems. He has authored over 20 peer-reviewed publications in prestigious conferences and journals. His academic services also include serving on over 15 conference and programme committees and as a journal editor (Advancement in Pattern Recognition, 2018).Moody’s career spans over a decade of research and leading research teams in academia, governments and industry. He is an award-winning scientist who has worked at world-class institutions including Microsoft Research, Cambridge and University of Oxford, and has substantial experience leading technical and cross-functional teams at SMEs and large organizations. His distinguished scientific career is well recognized among the research community and has led to him advising governments and global tech companies on issues ranging from decentralized systems, artificial intelligence, machine learning and smart energy.Moody identifies himself as ‘a scientist with a passion to improve the human condition’. He firmly believes that science can play a much greater and more fundamental role in the future of humanity; well beyond its perceived notion of merely producing technological miracles. He is a strong believer in the power of education and its role in societal reforms and when he is not ‘geeking out’, he spends his time supporting non-profit organizations in this sector.On joining IOTAModern societies require modern mechanisms to enable trust, privacy and cooperation among its constituents. DLTs have great potential to fill this void by providing such mechanisms. This is why I am very delighted to be a part of the IOTA Foundation’s initiative and take on its challenge of developing the next generation DLT. As a scientist, this challenge has everything for me; it is complex, intellectually stimulating and solving it has huge potential and value for our society. However, the most exciting part for me is the not-for-profit nature of IF and it’s inclusive, far-reaching vision of providing the world with the much-needed technology.As Director of Research, my priorities will include bringing transparency, scientific rigour and peer reviews to ongoing research, as well as to substantially strengthen and increase our collaboration with our partners in academia and industry. My immediate goals are to consolidate the existing talents and expertise in our research team and put our department on the path to carry out high-impact and world-class research. I am confident that high-quality research and meaningful collaborations will not only speed up delivering on IF’s mission of developing Next Generation DLT, but also establish us among the best DLT research organisation in the world.”We are very happy to officially announce Moody joining the project. His extensive background in leading research teams at professional organizations, widely recognized contributions to the academic community and his extreme passion will be of great value to the IOTA foundation. Give him a warm welcome!Welcome Dr. Moody Alam to the IOTA Foundation was originally published in IOTA on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
