Subject: The Proposed Constitution for the 'Newstates of America', An analysis
THE PROPOSED CONSTITUTION FOR THE
'NEWSTATES OF AMERICA'
An analysis by
E. Stanley Rittenhouse
This new constitution would replace the present U.S.
Constitution and would dissolve the States as we know them into
Newstates, "each comprising no less than 5 percent of the whole
population." This new constitution with its regional government
would bring about an oligarchy at the expense of our
Constitutional Republic. This form of dictatorship that is
planned for America would bring into even more prominence and
power the crowd who wants a "New World Order."
This proposed constitution is, in itself, a vehicle for the
transition from our proven, tried and true, divinely-ordained
Constitution to the New World Order that man, in his own efforts,
hopes to impose upon mankind.
The first eight words of the preamble clearly spell out all
of the above. "So that we may join in common endeavors" assumes
that everyone wants to support their endeavors to destroy
America's sovereignty, states rights and the individual's God-
given liberty and freedom. Should this be accomplished, the
states would be abolished in favor of regions known as
"Newstates." By their assumption, the initiative is taken and
the momentum gained.
The "common endeavors" in this case is the destruction of
our U.S. Constitution so as to replace it with a dictatorship.
The new would have the form and appearance of the old but there
the similarity would end. The Newstates of America Constitution
is merely a form of the old in order to pacify those still
remembering the liberty that is guaranteed. The new constitution
is a bridge, a part of the hopefully peaceful transition from a
Constitutional Republic to an oligarchic world dictatorship. The
mere fact that this new constitution is to be in effect only 25
years and that many opportunities are provided to revise and
rewrite it in those years, indicates the role of transition.
Article XI, Section 2 declares: "When this Constitution
shall have been in effect for twenty-five years the Overseer
shall ask, by referendum whether a new Constitution shall be
prepared." And should those in power be defeated in the case of
amending their new constitution, they won't take no for an
answer. To quote Article XI, Section 1: "If rejected (that
which they proposed), it may be restudied and a new proposal
submitted." So evidently, it is not possible for the people to
totally reject that which the appointed Principal Justice and
that which the appointed Senate proposes.
The word "emergency" appears frequently in the proposed
Constitution but is never mentioned in our U.S. Constitution.
Consequently, an "emergency" is used to impose new dictates--
which could only be accomplished at the expense of the U.S.
Much of the language is vague leaving it wide open to
various interpretations--and of course the ones in power would
control the courts as our judicial system would be restructured
to favor the continuance of power. This would be accomplished by
eliminating the present checks and balances so established within
the present Constitution. The legislative, judicial and
executive branches would be replaced with six branches, all
designed and structured to perpetuate those in power.
Article XII spells out clearly the awesome dictatorial power
that will be put into the hands of a few. Section 1 states:
"The President is authorized to assume such powers, make such
appointments, and use such funds as are necessary to make this
Constitution effective as soon as possible after acceptance by a
referendum he may initiate." Section 4 says, "the president
shall cause to be constituted an appropriate commission to
designate existing laws inconsistent with this Constitution, and
they shall be void."
The new order would bring about land use--the federal
control or "use" of private property. (And we all know there can
be no human rights without property rights!) The Newstates
Constitution declares: "No property shall be taken without
compensation." By leaving the word "just" out, the compensation
becomes very arbitrary and the final decision would rest with the
government. Article VI, B, Section 16, states: "To acquire
property and improvements for public use at costs to be fixed, if
necessary, by the Court of Claims." The Court of Claims will be
made up of appointees.
In order for the One-Worlders to maintain themselves in
power, the key positions would be filled by appointees with the
authority as well as the power being given to these unelected
bureaucrats. Such officials as the Overseer, the Watchkeeper,
the National Regulator, the Intendant, the Principal Justice and
his appointed members of all national courts, the Public
Custodian, the chairman of the National Planning Board,
Chancellors of External, Financial, Legal & Military Affairs and
the appointed Senate, to name a few will be the unelected. This
approach would tend to continually bring to power only those of
like mind. This is completely contrary to the attitude and
approach our Founding Fathers had back in 1789 when writing the
U.S. Constitution. Their concern was with the individual, his
life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; certainly not with an
obsession of bringing more power to themselves and perpetuating
themselves in power. The fact that power corrupts and absolute
power corrupts absolutely still applies today as it did then and
should make us eternally vigilant against such a trend ever
developing toward absolute power.
Article I, Section 1, states: "Freedom of expression of
communication, of movement, of assembly or of petition shall not
be abridged except in declared emergency." In other words, all
freedom is dependent upon whether the government would declare an
emergency or not. But freedom is a right not to be revoked; they
make it a privilege and at the mercy of their whim. This would
be government by men, not by law.
As this constitution states throughout, so much is dependent
on certain conditions which can be determined at a later date,
"Except in declared emergency;" "except in the interest of
national security;" "Existing states may continue and may have
the status of Newstates if the Boundary Commission, hereinafter
provided, shall so decide;" "except they be approved;" "unless
authorized;" "shall conform to his regulation;" etc., all point
out that the form of government proposed by this document would
be very arbitrary and dictatorial with the individual being
forced to yield to his government. The result would be very
little individual liberty.
Article I, B, Section 8 would establish federal gun control
and at the same time the dissolution of our 2nd Amendment which
guarantees the citizen the right to bear arms.
This proposed new government would control the elections.
Political parties would need the approval of the Overseer and
elections would be controlled by controlling the spending; this,
in turn, would control the legislature.
The club of Revenue Sharing would also be in effect. "If
governments of the Newstates fail to carry out fully their
constitutional duties, their officials shall be warned and may be
required by the Senate, on the recommendations of the
Watchkeeper, to forfeit revenues for the Newstates of America."
(Art II, Sec 15).
This new constitution establishes the President with a term
of nine years. This would make the government still less
accountable to the people.
There no longer would be a competitive, free-enterprise
system but a "planned economy." And the planners would be
appointed by the President.
This constitution would seek to dictate that the interests
of America not be put first. Article IV, Section 13 & 14
declares: "In making plans, there shall be due regard to the
interests of other nations and such cooperation with their
intentions as may be approved by the Board.
"There may also be cooperation with international agencies
and such contributions to their work as are not disapproved by
In regard to taxes, the President would be the tax czar, a
virtual dictator. "To assist in the maintenance of economic
stability, the President may be authorized to alter rates by
executive order." Article VI, B, Section 9d.
The economic dictatorship is also promoted in Article VII,
the Regulatory Branch, Section 1 declares that the "National
Regulator...shall make and administer rules for the conduct of
all economic enterprises." But "they" always look out for
their own. Section 3 states: "Under procedures approved by the
Board, the Regulator shall charter all corporations or
enterprises except those exempted because of size or other
characteristics, or those supervised by the Chancellor of
Financial affairs, or the intendant..." One wonders what
characteristics would be sufficient to escape the hand of the
Section 10: "The Regulator shall make rules for and shall
supervise marketplaces for goods and services." The law of
supply and demand would come under the heel of the bureaucrat.
The free-enterprise system that has provided the prosperity
and level of living that is the envy and standard of the world
would be abandoned by these international-socialists promoting
the scheme and conspiracy of a socialistic, dictatorial economic
system that has proven throughout the history of mankind, to be
disfunctional, non-workable and a total failure. Why, you may
ask? This whole document and what it represents is a move toward
a centralization of power so that the few may control the many.
"The President may make agreements with OTHER ORGANIZED
PEOPLES for a relation OTHER THAN FULL MEMBERSHIP in the
Newstates of America. They may become citizens and may
PARTICIPATE IN THE SELECTION OF OFFICIALS. They may RECEIVE
ASSISTANCE for their development or or from the National Sharing
Fund if they conform to its requirements; and they may serve in
civilian or military services, BUT ONLY AS VOLUNTEERS. They
shall be REPRESENTED IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES BY MEMBERS
ELECTED AT LARGE, their number proportional to their
constituencies; but each shall have at least one; and each shall
in the same way choose one permanent member of the Senate."
The [capitalized] emphases are added and they speak for
This document would put America at the mercy of the United
Nations by recognizing U.N. agreements on par with our treaties
(Article VIII, Section 14c). This would open the door to the
Genocide Treaty with evils too numerous to list here.
When a government is highly centralized, it is also highly
vulnerable. It is an efficient structure for takeover by a
determined minority. When there is decentralization and the
power of the government truly rests with its citizens, to capture
a part only provides a threat to the whole but does not
necessarily mean a total loss. This system of checks and
balances which we enjoy under the U.S. Constitution provides the
opportunity of correcting the wrong, throwing the rascals out and
preserving the Union. The name itself says it all, the United
States of America, not a collection of federal regions controlled
and run by the unelected elite.
In diversification of authority and power, there is
security. States' rights themselves provide that service and
when united in a Union provide a formidable structure against
attack from without and subversion from within. To weaken that
structure, the states and their rights must be dissolved. The
Newstates (regions) and this infamous constitution would weaken
the Union and make us vulnerable to these vultures who want
America for their own.
Certain powerful forces hope to replace the freedoms
guaranteed in our Constitution by their own dictatorship--a
cleverly disguised dictatorship. It has been planned to resemble
superficially the government we have now, so that we will not
recognize it for what it is--until too late.
They are using every propaganda trick at their command to
make us lower our guard. For years they have been working
through groups too numerous to list, orchestrating their efforts
to force a "New Constitution" on us while the people of America
slumber, unaware of what is happening.
In 1964 a tax-exempt foundation, the far left,
internationalist "Center for the Study of Democratic
Institutions," an offshoot of the multibillion dollar Ford
Foundation, began writing a "New Constitution." It took ten
years and hundreds of thousands of tax-free dollars to write.
The final version was prepared under the leadership of Rexford G.
Tugwell, well-known in the 1930's as one of FDR's "brain-
The "Newstates Constitution" is a blueprint for the slavery
of the American people. It is a document you should know and
understand to comprehend the conspiracy that powerful forces in
America have entered into in order to snap the manacles of an
international dictatorship on the arms and legs of America.

text of the "Newstates Constitution," a review by Col. Curtis B.
Dall, Chairman of Liberty Lobby, and a commentary by E. Stanley
Rittenhouse, Liberty Lobby's Legislative Aide. Colonel Dall is a
