The Michigan “Lockdown” Liberty And Accountability Key

The simple, indisputable legal basis for reclaiming freedom from all “lockdown” edicts in the Great Lakes state, and for holding the perps responsible.

(The Texas, Virginia, Kentucky, Wyoming and Georgia Keys have been added, below.)

1. The Michigan Constitution is the supreme law of the state:

Schedule, section 16, of the Michigan Constitution of 1963 provides that upon adoption of that Constitution by a majority of electors, “it shall be the supreme law of the state on and after the first day of January of the year following its adoption” and declares that vote in favor of adoption as having been certified on June 20, 1963.

2. Disharmony with the Constitution invalidates any purported act, pronouncement, edict, decree, order or law of any state officer(s) or agent(s):

The General rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law is in reality no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose; since unconstitutionality dates from the time of it’s enactment and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it. An unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed. Such a statute leaves the question that it purports to settle just as it would be had the statute not been enacted.

No repeal of an enactment is necessary, since an unconstitutional law is void. The general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection, and justifies no acts performed under it.

16 Am Jur 2d, Sec 256

3. Michigan’s Constitution vests law-making (legislative) power– that is, the power to impose enforceable requirements or prohibitions– exclusively in the legislature, in Article IV, section 1 and Article III, section 2, with only two very narrow and specific exceptions (all bracketed clarifications and emphases added):

Article IV, § 1 Legislative power.

Except to the extent limited or abrogated by article IV, section 6 [providing for an Independent citizens redistricting commission] or article V, section 2 [allowing the governor to rearrange or reassign functions within the legislatively-established executive branch, subject to approval by the legislature where having the character of law], the legislative power of the State of Michigan is vested in a senate and a house of representatives.
