Skip to comments.Attempted Coup d'Etat
Posted on 10/24/2010 9:24:37 PM PDT by stolinsky
Obama complains that the Constitution is fundamentally flawed, because it fails to provide for redistribution of wealth. Apparently he compares the Constitution unfavorably with The Communist Manifesto. Such thinking may have been understandable in a young college student who was unaware of the 100 million deaths attributable to communism, but it is inexcusable in a supposedly mature individual in a position of great power. Obama fails to understand the fundamental goal of the Constitution − to reduce the risk of tyranny by limiting the power of the federal government. He sees this as a flaw, not as a virtue. He wants a living Constitution, meaning not the document as actually written, but a vague concept to be interpreted by liberal judges to mean whatever they want it to mean today. Tomorrow it may mean something else, depending on current social needs and international norms. I knew a guy in junior high school named Norm, but he had nothing to do with interpreting the Constitution.

Did you see Jonathan Alter crucify Dinesh DeSousa? Posing as an interviewer, CSpan2 booktv.org, let this blood sporter, Alter, “interview” Dinesh. Obama is not to be analyzed, criticised or otherwise reflected upon by anyone who isn’t already in the camp of Alinsky, Hitler, et.al. Dinesh could get only fragments of sentences out before Alter filabustered his every breath. Outrageous.
This makes my blood boil! Excellent editorial.
“He sees this as a flaw, not as a virtue.”
Close. He sees this as an obstacle to his power, not a necessity for a viable nation. Then again, it’s pretty clear obama would be happy to rule over a failed state.
Why do you excerpt your own material?
Are you a Blog Pimp?
Why would he allow himself to be interviewed by Alter? That is just asking for it. Alter is a well known partisan hack.
We have a Constitution?
Excellent! Well thought out, brief and to the the point.
I always appreciate someone being able to summarize a clear, concise and cogent summary, as it makes it that much easier for me to organize my own thoughts prior to the next (inevitable) political “discussion”.... ;)
Keep up the good work, ignore the naysayers and “pimp” away!
People who watch TV allow the left/Dems/islamics to play their games and brainwash the masses.
Americans have a choice between the clicker and serfdom and they have chosen serfdom.
I refuse to play. I got off “The Matrix” over a year ago. F TV and Hollywood.
Except for the religion bit, looks like something I would like to have written.
Saved to my desktop to pass along.
“When I was choosing a title for this column, I wondered whether the term coup was too strong.”
In Obama’s own words, it is a “coup” -
I was thinking about this. I am 62 in March. I have decided I would gladly give up social security and medicare rather than freedom. In a free environment I could do better anyway.
That’s being harsh!
This topic is “bloggers and personal” - so if a FReeper wants post a link to his own blog, I see no violation of the rules.
I also think an apology is in order here.
Obama and much of the American Left are dangerous psychopaths who have de facto launched a Socialist Second American Revolution against the Republic.
I can almost hear them chanting, “Hey, hey, ho, ho, the U.S. Constitution has to go,”
Now they face blow back from us “CONTRAS.”
I hope the enjoy the brewing counter-revolution they created.
I’m 62 and living on my military pension, and I’ll gradly give that up if it means saving the Republic.
As a former trained infantryman I know how to survive in the cold and rain.
Good article.. I like your webpage.. thanks for posting.
If you have a ping list for your “stuff” please add me?
I thought D’souza mopped the floor with him. By the time it was over Alter was hoarse, hunched over, clinging to the table.
Democrats view the Constitution as a menu for a Chinese restaurant - one from column A, one from column B and one from column C. This way they can hide by the Constitution when it suits their purpose or ignore it when hinders their insidious plots.
Obama is on tape declaring that he laments that the Constitution limits what government can DO to the people.
I think this was on public radio in Chicago back when he was a state senator.
The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. And to that extent, as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, as least as it's been interpreted, and [sic] Warren Court interpreted in the same way that, generally, the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties, says what the states can't do to you, says what the federal government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf.Emphasis added to show that he believes the intent of the founding fathers to be wrong.
I would read the rest of your blog if you would post it here, otherwise forget it.
Sorry, I didn’t mean to force you to exert yourself by clicking the link. I thought the idea was to get our ideas across before it is too late. Guess I was wrong.
“I thought Dsouza mopped the floor with him. By the time it was over Alter was hoarse, hunched over, clinging to the table.”
My anger was really with CSpan for allowing a guest to be so clubbed by the host and his authority over his guest that he could hardly make his book coherent to the viewer. Thankfully, Alter’s fury was kept at high pitch by DSouza’s genius, unflappable firmness with the splintered, fragmented facts (due to the filabuster interruptions and talking over of Alter. I did complain to CSpan. It was in no way, an interview.
First, Ive looked at your blog and you appear to do some good work. Thank you for sharing it, Doctor.
However, your excerpt was very short, meaning people have to go to your blog to read the meat of the article. Also, A look at your posting history shows you dont respond to many people and only reply on threads you start. This would lead some to conclude that the only reason you come to FR would be to generate hits for your blog, not to advance conservativism.
Some people take greater offense to this than others, some people don’t have a problem with it. Many bloggers have done very well here without the teasers. One thing, however, is fairly certain. Getting into a pissing match with the people who call you on it is a no win situation.
One again, I like your writing. Freepgards,
Mariner here. I could care less about it. Cancel the damn crap and let us live in peace. The government needs a 90% haircut. I just want them to go away.
I’m afraid it’s going to take a civil war to do what you propose - No ruling class in history ever went quietly into the night and our neo-communist elites aren’t into surrender; they will fight.
The question is whether we patriots will pick up the gauntlet and fight a bloody civil war for freedom as did our ancestors in 1775 and 1861.
So far the opposition thinks that elections and demonstrations will do the trick, but I think the issue between the Left and Right will only be settled by “iron and blood.”
Nahh. They run like Rabbits when confronyrd by Taxpayers.
