'Propaganda'?! U.S. Congressman Slanders the Constitution
FoxNation.com ^ | Jan 5

Posted on 01/05/2011 10:27:49 AM PST by JesseWatters

For more than 200 years, Americans have revered the Constitution as the law of the land, but the GOP and tea party heralding of the document in recent months - and the planned recitation on the House floor Thursday - have caused some Democrats to worry that the charter is being misconstrued as the immutable word of God. "They are reading it like a sacred text," said Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), the outgoing chairman of the House Judiciary subcommittee on the Constitution, civil rights and civil liberties

As for me, it is sacred text and must be followed at all costs. Those who don’t want to follow our Constitution, need to leave this country.

Looks like all the Democrats got the memo. These people take an oath to uphold the Constitution. It’s not the Word of God, but it is the founding document for the country and its government. It’s also the document that allows Nadler to sit on his posterior in Congress.

How would Nadler know if it was a sacred text? TO him nothing is sacred.

Sacred texts have a way of making some feel guilty.

The Constitution is the contract between the Government and the People.

Live up to it Congress, or lose your jobs.

Period.

If they don’t like the Constitution then they can amend it something that has been done many many times. The importance of the Constitution is that it is supposed to provide an immutable common foundation on which our legal system is to stand. When we allow purposeful misinterpreting or ignoring the Constitution then we are no longer a nation of law but a nation where the whims of men are the law and individual liberty is never safe.

One of the reasons it is being read is because of the unconstitutional Obamacare bill, that Nadler voted yes for and probably did not even read.

Nadler is one of those disgusting, arrogant pukes — who are legion in the Democratic party — who thinks he is wiser and more intelligent than our Founding Fathers. Unfortunately, the president is of the same ilk.

perhaps if the democrats had not thrown out the laws of the land, the republicans would not have to read them on the floor as a reminder of the laws of the land in such a symbolic way.

It is high time that the socialists who have labeled themselves liberals and progressives learned that this is the law. It must be upheld and that anyone who wishes to circumvent that is a traitor.

But to try to say that republicans present it as a religious text is just Nadler’s way of saying he never read it ...not wanting to have a state/church conflict ... better to make it up as you go along

The Constitution is a covenant, a contract.

The congressman SWORE to uphold and defend this covenant against all enemies, domestic and foreign.

He has violated his oath and exposed himself as an *ENEMY* of the Constitution. As such, he should be arrested for perjury and treason, and brought to justice.

It IS sacred Congressman, and it is also the document you swore to uphold and defend. No it is not immutable. If you don’t see it as sacred then you are in the wrong business.

If I am inject a bit of history into a thread devoted to the present day egregious UnAmericanism of the elected Liberal, a very specific line from one of the ‘dead, white, males’ who created the government we now enjoy the blessings of comes to mind:
“The Constitution is sacredly obligatory upon all”

President George Washington said that a long time ago. He was, of course, telling it as it was then.

We must be sure it is that way now.

And we must teach it diligently unto our children if America is to exist in the future.

Gets off soap box . . .

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), the outgoing chairman of the House Judiciary subcommittee on the Constitution, civil rights and civil liberties, who has studied and memorized the Constitution with talmudic intensity. Nadler called the "ritualistic reading" on the floor "total nonsense" and "propaganda" intended to claim the document for Republicans.

"ritualistic reading?"

"total nonsense?"

"propaganda?"

So, what happened to the self righteous crap non-answer from now "outgoing / outgone" nut job Nancy p?

" Thursday, October 22, 2009
By Matt Cover


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of Calif. gestures during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, July 30, 2009, to discuss health care.

(CNSNews.com) – When CNSNews.com asked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday where the Constitution authorized Congress to order Americans to buy health insurance--a mandate included in both the House and Senate versions of the health care bill--Pelosi dismissed the question by saying: “Are you serious? Are you serious?”

Pelosi's press secretary later responded to written follow-up questions from CNSNews.com by emailing CNSNews.com a press release on the “Constitutionality of Health Insurance Reform,” that argues that Congress derives the authority to mandate that people purchase health insurance from its constitutional power to regulate interstate commerce.

The exchange with Speaker Pelosi on Thursday occurred as follows:

CNSNews.com: “Madam Speaker, where specifically does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to enact an individual health insurance mandate?

Pelosi: “Are you serious? Are you serious?"

CNSNews.com: “Yes, yes I am."

Really Nancy? Really Jerrold?

Really?

Ok, a re-post of a previous observation is in order just to assure everyone that this is nothing other that sour grapes from a defeated communist and the communists-that-call-themselves-democrat are incapable of any other reaction when getting their "collective" butts kicked up around their ears.

One more time...



They are beyond help, they do not have the capacity to be educated out of communism disguised as "liberalism and progressiveness." They can not or refuse to see the destructive nature of the communism disguised as "liberalism and progressiveness" they promote.

What the supporters of communist "liberalism and progressiveness" will destroy is the very nation that gave them their freedom. They will complain, demonize, belittle and protest when opposed but only preserving this Republic in it’s original context will continue to give them their freedom to complain and protest against it.

They will not stop destroying this nation of their own accord.

The only way to preserve freedom for American Citizens in this Republic is suppression of the communist supporters.

Democrats are the enemies of freedom.

The consittution is an inspried text that defines the rights of a free people and protects them from an all powerful despotic central government.

It has guided this country for 222 years, and many hundreds of thousands of men have died to defend the country it defines.

The Democrats are the now the Communist Party of America, and value arty power over the Constitution, personal liberties, and America.

They must be exposed and voted out at every opportunity and fought with an intensity only formerly reserved for foreign enemies.

Because they are an enemy foreign to the very notion of America.

Jerry the Hutt actually has a fair point lost amongst his vitriol, the constitution is not the bible and the founders weren’t gods. What they were are smart guys and they wisely made the constitution amendable.

But he’s wrong to criticize the reading of it. They need to hear it. He needs to hear it. Cause Congress has been ignoring it. Nader’s party treats it like toilet paper.

The Founding Fathers were profoundly intelligent men who crafted a document based on an analysis of previous governments and philosophy going back 2000 years to the ancient Greeks.

Todays politicians, by comparison are stark raving madmen and slothful imbeciles, who cant understand a document that was written 200 years ago.

Jerry Nadler was the inspiration for the abortion pill. It's a truly gross lifeform.

Palin. I've been posting for years she's been “Quayled”, which translates into “unelectable”. That has nothing to do with her as a person; it's an indictment of the MSM. If you're looking for a woman to be prez, Michele Bachmann would be a great choice; she's very articulate and doesn't have sky-high negatives. IMO, Mike Pence would be as close to a perfect candidate the GOP could field for 2012. Barring Pence, I like Michele.

I wish I had hot teachers when I was in HS. And for sure, that kid's “street cred” must be through the roof.

Nancy Pelosi needs to post-live-birth-abort herself.

RE: Trying to pin the Giffords shooting on the Tea Party/Palin: Not one shred of evidence connecting anything, outside of that fact the shooter is a leftist freak. Sound familiar? (see Princip and Oswald for 2 examples). Regarding the allegation that a “target” was placed on Giffords by Sarah Palin: What about the movie that showed the assassination of GWB? Oh right, that's just liberal “art” protected by the 1st Amendment.

I look at the Giffords whole incident as another indication that this country has become way, way too fractionated to remain united and should split into two separate countries, one a "Blue" liberal sh*t hole, one a "Red" Constitutionally based one. Let's see which one thrives and survives.

Over and out...
