Liberal Star Blogger Ezra Klein: Constitution ‘Has No Binding Power on Anything’ (Video)
Breitbart/MSNBC ^ | 12/29/2010 | Ezra Klein

Posted on 12/30/2010 5:54:03 PM PST by mojito

Huffpo/WaPo blogger "superstar" Ezra Klein reveals everthing that you knew was wrong with the left, including their claim that they're smarter and better educated than you.

This clownish juvenile deliquent who passes for informed opinion on the left is pleased to reveal that the Constitution is "over a hundred years old," and hence, out of date, irrelevant, and downright confusing.

Video at the link.

Evil. Smug. Clueless. Moron.

I tried to put a "Hurlnami Alert" in the title, but ran out of room.

mojito: You got Klein right - Smug, clueless, moron, and just to show you that I like Marine Lee Ermy, an “asswipe”.

Klein writes a column for the Washington Post and it often sounds like he’s in the 8th grade.

If they ever do an Indie movie about his life, it will be entitled “Clueless 2”.

The stupidity of Ezra Klein is astonishing.

BO is NOT constitutionally qualified to be POTUS regardless of where he was born because by his own admission his dad was a British/Kenyan citizen.

There is a clear, concise and definitive statement in Vattel’s Law of Nations which was the principal legal treatise used by the Founding Fathers in writing the Constitution.

“The natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens... it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”

What number on the journolista list was this moron?

Now this would be the perfect person to frame and personalize. He is a walking tea party campaign ad.

The stupidity of Ezra Klein is astonishing.

Last week he was touting the successes of the Massachusetts Medical System and how much better Obamacare would be.

Klein is not what most people think, a misguided semi cool radical ? Sorry, no. Klein is a liberal fascist, a propagandist of the first order in the tradition of Goebbels.

If Klein and all his journolist fellow propagandists disappeared by tommorrow, it would be no loss whatsoever.

Klein has no constitution connection? You Betcha!No one in the Obamam fascist movement does.

Klein and his ilk might be interested to know that the 85 newspaper essays which came to be known as THE FEDERALIST were written by Madison, Hamilton, and Jay as explanations of the Constitution to farmers in upstate New York.

Thomas Jefferson's records indicate that they were designated by the Board of Visitors of his University of Virginia to be taught there as the text for its law school. "'The Federalist'", the Board minutes indicate, "constitute 'an authority to which appeal is habitually made by all, and rarely declined or denied by any as evidence of the general opinion of those who framed, and of those who accepted the Constitution of the U. S., on questions as to its genuine meaning.'" (Quoted from Thomas Jefferson's record of the meeting). (P. 225, "Our Ageless Constitution."}

Should Mr. Klein feel that he is up to reading and comprehending these explanations of this Constitution he finds to be so difficult and temporary in its construction, perhaps he might better understand the protections for liberty of that document so admired by generations of intellectual giants who love liberty throughout the world (including Sir William Gladstone).

As I said on another related post:
“If they cant understand the Constitution especially when assisted with the Federalist papers. Then they never could comprehend the tax code or the health care bill to name a few challenges for the lib’s.”

According to Klein, the Constitution is "over a hundred years old." I guess that means that the Constitution was ratified sometime between the administrations of Chester Arthur and William Howard Taft.

Now someone should just take away Klein’s “freedom of the press”, and watch him wail...liberals use the Constitution like atheists use the Bible, selectively and only when it benefits them.

Das Kapital and The Communist Manifesto are both also over 100 years old too. Can we throw those out as well?

Please?

"All the life's wisdom can be found in anagrams. Anagrams never lie."

I tried this with Ezra Klein's name and came up with only 25 anagrams, none of them meaningful at all. Figures. Oh, to see him in the Philadelphia Convention trying to put up his blogging powers against almost any one of the signers and getting bitch slapped to a whimpering pulp.

It’s not often you find a lefty that’s so refreshingly honest about his (her) beliefs.

Fine. Constitution is out.

Let’s shut down the Washington Post (among others) and lock up Ezra Klein, just for openers. No writ, no warrant, no due cause, no habeus corpus.

We have guns and fuel, we have land and skills, we have faith, principle, conviction and b@lls-—they got none.

Ezra et al.....let’s get this dance started.

Yup. Delusional. Worldwide experience in all manner of ‘experiments’ in sovereign governance has shown the US Constitution to be key to the success of the USA, the envy of that portion of the rest of the world that has knowledge of world history. That lesson appears difficult to learn in an intellectual environment that believes it deserves to be supported by the government without any exchange of productivity.

If ezra the nancyboy wants the Constitution to fail, so be it. If anarchy prevails, which he seems to want, little does he know that he and his scrawny body would last no more than a month in a brutal lawless world.

Try reading the Constitution.

Then try reading the Obamacare bill.

Which one appears to be more confusing?

Hey Ezra,

Since you live in the DC area, writing for the washington post and all,
haven’t you been down Pennsylvania Avenue?
By the Newseum?

Congress shall make no law....HUGE LETTERS on the building.
the first words of the First Amendment.

and you don’t think the Constitution is binding?

No wonder you gutless wonders don’t understand the fact that
Obamacare declares a penalty in the law, but then Obama was asked
by George Stephanopoulos whether it was a tax? No it’s not a tax
Obama said defiantly.
Then, to cover their butts, the DOJ also put in that it was a tax in
their response to lawsuits against the individual mandate.
However, it does not fall into any allowable tax (excise, etc.)

If you knew anything Ezra, if you were a real policy wonk like you
advertize, you would have at least mentioned the friggin 1st Amendment,
or the income tax Amendment (1913).
Progressives. dumb as rocks.

If the constitution ever did go away and it goes to law of the jungle, we should seek the little faggot out, grab him by his ankles and repeatedly slam him face-first into the pavement.

HAPPY...

Liberal Star Blogger Ezra Klein: Constitution ‘Has No Binding Power on Anything

The American Constitution is an expression of the Doctrine of Negative (or Natural) Rights.

The Doctrine of Negative (or Natural) Rights comes from God, and is therefore inherent in all human beings.

To deny the binding power of the Doctrine of Negative (or Natural) Rights, therefore, is to deny the binding power of God's Law.

Game on.

Imagine what he must believe about the traditional beliefs of "indigenous pipples." [/sarcasm]

Bet he'd be the first person to scream "First Amendment!" if some local school principal edited the "f-" word out of a student newspaper.
