I think your essay is begging the question ...
The Federal government does have exclusive jurisdiction over D.C.
and over all such Federal "enclaves" pursuant to 1:8:17, and
it also has plenary, municipal jurisdiction over all Federal Territories
and Possessions pursuant to the Territory Clause at 4:3:2:
Thus, the power to exercise EXCLUSIVE jurisdiction over Federal enclaves (like D.C.),
Territories and Possessions IS DELEGATED TO THE UNITED STATES
(meaning the Federal government, in this context).
Inside those areas, which we have collectively called
the "federal zone", there are no State Legislatures,
no State Governors, and no State Courts
(where "State" means a Union member, or
a star on the American flag).
Congress is the local, municipal Legislature for
all areas within that federal zone: Congress is
the "City Hall" everywhere inside that zone.
Now, federal citizens are, by definition, subject to Federal
MUNICIPAL laws, regardless of where they may "reside",
notwithstanding the failed Fourteenth "amendment":
the laws which Congress enacts for the District of Columbia
are being applied to those federal citizens because they are,
by definition, SUBJECT TO those laws, whether they like it or not:
The Federal UCC is a classic example -- enacted EXPRESSLY for D.C.:
Call them "long-arm statutes", call them whatever you want;
by reason of their primary allegiance to the legislative "democracy"
which Congress was free to create for the federal zone, federal citizens
are SUBJECT TO that MUNICIPAL jurisdiction, first and foremost
EVEN IF they inhabit one of the 50 States of the Union:
Social Security is another such Federal MUNICIPAL law,
and "legal experts" in 2 Federal government offices
have confirmed that "State" at IRC 3121(e) includes
ONLY D.C., Guam, Virgin Islands, American Samoa and
Read "their words / not mine!"
Now, if I understand your essay correctly, Congress is "supreme"
inside the federal zone, and all federal citizens owe their
primary allegiance to that jurisdiction because they are
exercising a Federal municipal franchise:
The people of the United States***, as sovereign owners of the national territories, have supreme power over them and their inhabitants. ... The personal and civil rights of the inhabitants of the territories are secured to them, as to other citizens, by the principles of constitutional liberty, which restrain all the agencies of government, state and national; their political rights are franchises which they hold as privileges in the legislative discretion of the congress of the United States**. This doctrine was fully and forcibly declared by the chief justice, delivering the opinion of the court in National Bank v. County of Yankton, 101 U.S. 129. [Murphy v. Ramsey, 114 U.S. 15 (1885)] [italics in original, emphasis added]
If you don't want to attach my name to any of the above,
then at least recognize Murphy v. Ramsey was decided in 1885 --
again "their words / not mine".
I added the asterisks easily to distinguish the three (3) definitions
of "United States" that are found in Hooven & Allison v. Evatt
decided in 1945 (during World War II, when people were probably
distracted with lots of other things, like Stalin's atrocities, Iwo Jima,
D-Day, nuclear war, or the bail-outs at Yalta):
What I don't understand is why the "experts" at the Tenth Amendment Center
persist in failing to elucidate this basic distinction between Federal jurisdiction
and the 50 State jurisdictions:
That distinction is as old as the organic Constitution itself!
Therefore, please tell us: why is it not FRAUD to persist in concealing this all important distinction?
I'm not trying to be difficult or insulting, but it IS time to call it the way I see it.
"The Federal Zone" (book) has been in circulation since 1992.
FYI: Lots of additional reading here on the two (2) classes of citizenship in America:
