Included was his takedown of the Fugitive Slave Acts of 1793 and 1850 - with 7 main objections under the Constitution, and what the people and states needed to do in response. Resist and nullify.

Rhode Island Committee Holds Hearing on Bill to Require Conviction for Asset Forfeiture, Opt State Out of Federal Program Under the proposed law, prosecutors would not be able to move forward with asset forfeiture proceedings without first obtaining a criminal conviction in most cases. The legislation would also raise the standard of proof necessary to complete forfeiture from a preponderance of evidence to clear and convincing evidence. On May 24, the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on the bill and voted to “hold for further study.” S732 also addresses the policing for profit incentives in the current forfeiture process. Under the proposed law, forfeiture proceeds would be deposited to the state general fund. As it stands, law enforcement agencies can keep up to 90 percent of forfeiture proceeds. Passage of the bill would effectively opt Rhode Island out of a federal program that allows state and local police to get around more strict state asset forfeiture laws. This is particularly important in light of a policy directive issued in July 2017 by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the Department of Justice (DOJ) that remains in effect today. According to the Institute for Justice, the current Rhode Island asset forfeiture process is “awful.” #assetforfeiture #constitution #libertarian #rhodeisland #10thAmendment https://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/05/rhode-island-committee-holds-hearing-on-bill-to-require-conviction-for-asset-forfeiture-opt-state-out-of-federal-program/

"Article 1, Section 8, of the Constitution gives Congress the power to “coin money.” It is not given any power to “print” money. Coining money is not printing money. At the risk of belaboring the obvious, coining money entails making coins out of metals." -Jacob Hornberger #soundmoney #endthefed #libertarian #10thAmendment #constitution https://tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/05/24/why-is-paper-money-constitutional/
