A sad farewell to the U.S. Constitution (calls GOP treasonous for eligibility inaction)

Exclusive: Christopher Monckton of Brenchley calls GOP treasonous for eligibility inaction

The U.S. Constitution was a magnificent document. In that long, hot Philadelphia summer, your Founding Fathers thoughtfully debated the instrument of your freedom – a document that inspires all of us who no longer live in the knowledge that the only people who can impose laws or taxes upon us are those whom we have elected.

In today’s Europe, we are ruled by faceless Kommissars elected by none, accountable to none, removable by none. By contrast, the United States is still, in Walt Whitman’s memorable phrase, “the athletic democracy.” Or, rather, it was.

For your governing class has cravenly abandoned the Constitution. Faced with one of the most flagrant and persisting breaches of that great charter of freedom in your nation’s history, they totter fightless from the field.

This is what your Constitution says:

“No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.”

No ifs. No buts. This is the ancient and sensible ius soli: you are a citizen of the nation on whose soil you were born. Not born here? Go and play president somewhere else.

There is no room in this column to point out all of the obvious defects in Mr. Obama’s transparently forged “birth certificate.” I have summarized them in a briefing for my Peers. Get it from www.moncktononline.com. Forgery has been committed. The fraudsters should be locked up forever.

But the real criminals are those in high office who know Mr. Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery but willfully, sullenly do absolutely nothing about it.

Mr. Romney made a joke of the bogus birth certificate and then, characteristically, flip-flopped and apologized.

This guy is a far better "American patriot" than most of us.

He closes his article with:

"To all my Republican friends I say this. You will come to regret, and regret bitterly, the day you stood down when you should have stood up and stood to. You should have upheld the Constitution. You betrayed it. Not only you but your nation will pay dearly for your treason by inaction.

The world will miss the U.S. Constitution. You have let the torch in the hand of Liberty flicker and die. Why?"

There is systemic corruption, with no checks and balances or consequences.

Monckton is equally hard on the idiots and liars that promulgate the man-made global-warming myth.

Gotta love this guy.

Then there was the Phoenix.

This republic has had plenty of very low points in its history, and we have the “privilege” of living in one of its lowest or THE lowest.

If we’re going down, we’re gonna have to go down fighting. There being no other honorable choice.

I am eagerly waiting for Repub convention speakers especially the top two to give reverence remarks of dedication to the Founders of the USA and the Constitution we were given. It is very important to address today’s conditions but unless the actions are within the framework of the Constitution the USA is loosing It’s exceptional qualities.

He follows in a line of British statesmen and jurists whose admiration for the beauty and architecture of the American Constitution has been eloquently expressed:

The American Constitution is "the most wonderful work ever struck off at a given moment by the brain and purpose of man." - Sir William Gladstone

We have come to a point in American history where, those who would heroically try to faithfully apply the Constitution today, would end up in orange jumpsuits tomorrow.

We have passed the point of no return and must now be prepared to take that wild rollercoaster ride downward.

Thanks Congress.

I don't blame the GOP. They face a shrinking space of relevance as they are pried away from Constitutional Principles by voters who have no grasp of freedom and liberty.

The cancer is in the People.

They have no faith in their understanding of wrong and right. They cower in the face of criticism and name-calling and allow their feelings to be manipulated by educators, journalists and commentators who have only their own interests at heart.

The individual American sense of independence and self-worth has been destroyed and replaced. Reagan was right about social engineering.

He used to be known as Brenchley of Moncton, but it made him sound like a stuffed shirt.

As soon as Romney mentioned the BC, Obama machine backs off asking for his taxes. Insider elite are very aware of the issue.

If Romney felt comfortable flinging serious dirt at his Republican competitors for the nomination, then why in HELL can’t he fling dirt where it belongs?

Obummer starts squirming when the NBC issue comes up. So bring it up! Again and again! At FULL VOLUME!!

“Birther” label be damned. DO THE RIGHT THING AND CHALLENGE HIM!!

What the anti-Federalists feared during the Constitutional Convention has come about, to much power of the central government.

Madison pleaded with the anti-Federalists to adopted the constitution with the promise that there would also be a Bill of Rights to go with the US Constitution.

What some have feared that the adoption and ratification of the US Constitution would do if create a out of control powerful central government has come to pass and we live with it today.

I am not saying that there is anything wrong with US Constitution it's self, for it's the best form of government, principles that this world has ever seen, but, as the old saying goes, to much power corrupts.

The the problem we see today has happened is that some have trampled on the US Constitution, or have disregard not only the letter of what the Constitution meant, but, the spirit of the US Constitution :

***** LIMITED GOVERNMENT HAS NO POWER OVER THE PEOPLE, BUT THE PEOPLE HAVE THE POWER OVER THE GOVERNMENT. *****

They didn’t have the fortitude to stand up on eligibility because they feared being called “racist” and “undemocratic.”
