Skip to comments.Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. Demands Obama Suspend Constitution to Create Jobs
Posted on 10/21/2011 11:50:04 AM PDT by tcrlaf
Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill., drew heavy criticism from fellow Democrats and his Republican colleagues for demanding President Barack Obama suspend the U.S. Constitution and declare a national jobs emergency.
Jackson told The Daily Caller last week that the president should use "extra-constitutional" authority to resolve the employment crisis by creating jobs outside of the normal legislative process. His comments drew immediate criticism from his primary opponent as well as other members of the House of Representatives.
Former congresswoman Debbie Halvorson, Jackson's Democratic opponent in next year's primary election, said he has failed to introduce a jobs bill during his 16 years in the House.

The true totalitarian colors of the Democrats are starting to come out. Many Inner-City Dems are beginning to realize they may not be elected, and they are becoming desperate.
The parallels to to the 1930's NAZI takeover of Germany are coming Fast & Furious now...
Article is from Tuesday. Imagine the faked media outrage had a REPUBLICAN said something like this?
And under what Constitutional Authority is this even possible?.............
Obama has no interest in “creating jobs”!
He just wants somebody else to blame for his destruction of America.
Bring it on, traitor!!
I honestly thought this was one of those satire articles at first. I cannot believe he would seriously say something so idiotic. I’m stunned, stuned, stooned, stoned.
If this nation is ever taken over by a right-wing cabal, there will be more than the Constitution that will be suspended! The prisons can’t hold any more enemies of society so perhaps there will be another solution.
Just as I’ve been saying ... ah... sayin’. Obama will declare martial law next year when it’s clear he will lose. Jackson is just the latest Dem Brownshirt to try to soften-up the public to the idea. We are about to enter terra incognito.
Bad, Bad Leroy Brown
Well the South side of Chicago
Is the baddest part of town
And if you go down there
You better just beware
Of a man named Leroy Brown
Now Leroy more than trouble
You see he stand ‘bout six foot four
All the downtown ladies call him Treetop Lover
All the men just call him Sir
And it’s bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest man in the whole damned town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog
Now Leroy he a gambler
And he like his fancy clothes
And he like to wave his diamond rings
In front of everybody’s nose
He got a custom Continental
He got an Eldorado too
He got a 32 gun in his pocket for fun
He got a razor in his shoe
Now Friday ‘bout a week ago
Leroy shootin’ dice
And at the edge of the bar
Sat a girl named Doris
And oo that girl looked nice
Well he cast his eyes upon her
And the trouble soon began
Cause Leroy Brown learned a lesson
Bout messin’ with the wife of a jealous man
Well the two men took to fighting
And when they pulled them off the floor
Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle
With a couple of pieces gone
That should be grounds for immediate removal from office.
I’d like to create one job - the job of stuffing an old sock in the pieholes of idiots like JJJJr.
Look at the little fascists throwing a hissy fit.
How ‘bout we exercise a real Constitutional right and get rid of this treasonous creature!
I wonder how Junior’s constituents would feel about this if they realized that suspensing the Constitution would make slavery legal again? Somehow I doubt that Junior could explain that away.
What a fool that young man is.
How crazy are these people?
This is the second time in less than 2 weeks that some Dem has suggested “suspending” the Constitution. A couple of weeks ago, the Dem governor of SC suggested suspending the elections because of the so-called jobs crisis.
So you know they’re talking about this at Dem central.
“And under what Constitutional Authority is this even possible?.............”
The Good and Plenty clause.
Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill. = Treasonous Idiot!
Forget suspending the constitution, why don’t they just wave a magic wand to create jobs?
WHAT? Hell that's just an Illinoisistan politician. Turbin Durbin will probably be along in a bit to endorse JJJ's new Commie plot!
This man is insane. Literally.
Although Jesse Jackson's demand that Obama 'suspend the constitution' to (supposedly) 'create jobs' (yeah, right) is moronic and would be shocking if it came from a member of congress that wasn't named 'Jesse Jackson, Junior. His 'demand' is a peek into the anti-constitutional, authoritarian mindset of leftists such as Jackson and should be instructive for independent voters and anyone who thinks Obama and the Democrats are patriotic Americans who simply have a slightly different view of how to 'fix' the U.S. economy. Hardly.
These people - leftists - look at authoritarian regimes around the world and salivate at the thought of emulating them, here, with guess who at the top of the heap. They see the U.S. constitution as an impediment to realizing their socialist utopia and would negate it in a heartbeat. Fortunately, America's founders knew such people would always be around and gave us as many protections from them as possible in the brilliant political document we cherish as our nations constitution.
Commie-wannabe clowns like Jesse Jackson, Junior can go pound sand..
The RATS will read the constitution on this issue like all other issues. The will read things that are not there and get their Obama, Clinton, and Carter appointed Federal Judges to agree with them.
I’ve had that dream myself.....
“So you know theyre talking about this at Dem central.”
These are ELECTED DEMOCRATS, calling for totalitarian measures, and the media doesn’t even make a big deal of it.
CAN YOU IMAGINE THE FAKED OUTRAGE had George Bush, or even the most MINOR of elected REPUBLICANS said something like this? We’d be treated to media orgy of hate, the likes of which we cannot even IMAGINE!
Time to wake up, folks...
If you think staying home in 2012 is even an option, no matter who the Repub Candidate is, you a dooming your own children.
Kick his butt to the curb, get him out of there!
NC Gov, Occupy freaks, JJ Junior...
What’s next? Bill Engvall pops up saying- here’s your sign!
Jobs doing what, exactly?
JJJr has also suggested that the fedgov hire everyone who is unemployed for $40K. Which would immediately destroy the US economy as retail outlets and fast food and many other industries will be empty.
I am thinking we trade by suspending his constitutional right to exist! I will see your suspension and rais you one! Kidding of course.. When he speaks we win!
“He would need an army to enforce any measure of suspension.”
Take a look a what’s going on in almost every major city, RIGHT NOW with the atroturfed Occupy Protests.
If the media decides it, it’ll be perceived as a “GOOD!” thing by the desperate sheeple.
History is rife with such examples, and we ignore them at our own peril.
JJJr’s last proposal would have crippled, no destroyed, the economy in less than a week.
It’s time to require that certain items be produced in America, it’s a no go to have them made elsewhere if Americans can’t buy them cause they have no jobs. Wake up fools. Some items are made to order job producers, which will employ certain workers. Made in China and scrapped here ain’t gonna work.
This is what p’s me off about leftists.
You can point out proposals like this to a sheeperal, and they’ll say “well, they didn’t get it done”, or “he’s only one of 535 congresspeople”.
No, that’s not the point. It’s that he’s a democrat, and that he WANTS TO DO THIS.
After Hillarycare failed, when you pointed out that the ‘rats wanted to socialize our medical system, the lefties’ excuse was “well, they didn’t get it done”. Now we have 0bamacare.
Give him a break. folks. Remember. He is the son of an idiot.
Shocking...I cannot believe...
“When he speaks we win”
NO, WE DON’T...
The sheeple will NEVER hear this from the mainstream media.
It’s already over a week old.
Reasons like this are why the left HAD to Destroy Glenn Beck on TV. Too many sheeple were tuning in to see the TRUTH, and that can’t be allowed.
Hey, I resemble that remark!
“What Constitutional authority? We don’t need no Constitutional authority!”
Heads up, folks! That’s the mentality we’re confronting!
I have been storing up tar and feathers in my garage, but at this rate, we are going to need a lot more of both.
He and his constituents want slavery legal again. They just think they're going to be the massahs.
Shows you how totally delusional they are.
Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. Demands Obama Suspend Constitution to Create Jobs
What a koinky-dink!
Jesse Jackson Jr. ethics probe resumes
Obama has implied a couple of times he’d like to govern without Congress. The Governor of North Carolina has suggested suspending elections. Articles in various lefty rags agree with these type of ideas.
This is not an isolated thing.
Thankfully we have access to alternate media to get the word out. I think We The People are getting wiser as we string together the clips of Dems suspending th Constitution.
Jackson is a slave.
