The Constitution for the United States of America

Article 1
Section 8 - Paragraph 9

To constitute tribunals inferior to the supreme court:

In order to carry out the various tasks that have been given to our Government, the Legislature is granted the power to establish courts that are inferior to the supreme court.

These courts can only deal in and with those items that fall within what power and authority has been granted to the Federal Government.

That means that the courts are either Maritime Courts that deal in International Affairs with the Foreign Nations, the States, and the Indian Nations, or they are Equity Courts that deal with contracts and agreements involving the functions of the Federal Government.

These are NOT courts designed to persecute and harass the People.

As we have said before, there are three different law systems mentioned in the Constitution. The Maritime Law, the Equity Law, and the Common Law.

Once more - these inferior Tribunals can only deal in and with what powers have been granted to the Government by We, the People in our Constitution.
