Brennan Takes Oath on Draft Constitution— Without Bill of Rights
Yahoo News ^ | March 08, 2013 | Olivier Knox

Posted on 03/08/2013 4:47:17 PM PST by Obama_Is_Sabotaging_America

Oh, dear. This is probably not the symbolism the White House wanted.

Hours after CIA Director John Brennan took the oath of office—behind closed doors, far away from the press, perhaps befitting his status as America's top spy—the White House took pains to emphasize the symbolism of the ceremony.

“There's one piece of this that I wanted to note for you,” spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at their daily briefing. “Director Brennan was sworn in with his hand on an original draft of the Constitution that had George Washington's personal handwriting and annotations on it, dating from 1787.”

Earnest said Brennan had asked for a document from the National Archives that would demonstrate the U.S. is a nation of laws.

"Director Brennan told the president that he made the request to the archives because he wanted to reaffirm his commitment to the rule of law as he took the oath of office as director of the CIA,” Earnest said.

The Constitution itself went into effect in 1789. But troublemaking blogger Marcy Wheeler points out that what was missing from the Constitution in 1787 is also quite symbolic: The Bill of Rights, which did not officially go into effect until December 1791 after ratification by states. (Caution: Marcy's post has some strong language.)

That means: No freedom of speech and of the press, no right to bear arms, no Fourth Amendment ban on “unreasonable searches and seizures,” and no right to a jury trial.

How ... symbolic?

Not unexpected. Muslim converts and Bibles don't mix! Just more of the same from the 0bama regime.

If any even partially conservative person had done this the libs would be all up in arms and calling it racist because it doesn’t have the 13th amendment in it.

Point this out to a liberal obama worshipper and he’ll simply say “That doesn’t mean anything. Brennan’s not a muslim and neither is obama.” Ask him about the head of NASA and he’ll say “Big Deal. NASA doesn’t matter.”

Yep. As a muslim convert, he believes in Sharia law. The bill of rights are the opposite of Sharia.

Yet......the dumbass republicans let him pass. (It makes me sick to my stomach how worthless the republicans in Washington have become.)

Well, maybe not. If one has the choice to take the oath on a Bible or a Koran, maybe a copy of the Constitution make a good alternative.

I don’t think that the Main Stream Media will ever report that Brennan is a Moslem convert. In the movie “Zero Dark Thirty,” a character is portrayed praying in Arabic on a prayer rug (not sure if it was in the White House or the CIA,) but the character was probably inteded to be Brennan.

let’s see; the CIA does the dirty work for the ruling families (bankster cartels) that are behind the NWO that is instigating wars in the middle east and fomenting the destruction of America and now the US has a Muslim heading the CIA and a Muslim in the WH and generally, Muslims HATE AMERICA, especially our Constitution. It appears that God is really getting the last laugh on the US. He’ll really get a kick out of these two Muslims using all their power of position and our money to destroy as much of America as they can before they are stopped, if they are stopped. We’ve even paid to build underground fortresses to house, feed and keep all these traitors that we have in DC. And they have the nerve to call anyone paranoid or wacko who dares to ask or mention or challenge anything about their anti-American activities. Jesus said it will come to pass and for us to not fear for all of the death and destruction that is coming to world is just growing pains.

Isn’t it sickening. The entire world knows the reason he didn’t use a Bible. We also know why obama has two swearing in ceremnonies, one in secret. But probably 75% of the American people simply don’t care. And obviously 100% of the republican politicians don’t care.

John Roberts (A Bush Boy) should be charged with treason for swearing this Kenyan into office. He, of all people, should know obama is not eligible.

” - - - Big deal, Obama swore on a stack of bibles that he would defend the Constitution and immediately attacked the second Amendment! - - - “

Obama also is a Muslim, and so The Bible has no special meaning to either Hussein or Brennan, the Democrats’ very own US Muslim Brotherhood.

The use of an historical document was an Obama Smokescreen to divert attention away from Brennan not using The Bible.

It’s a legitimate issue that he is taking his oath on the constitution instead of the bible. We can also wonder whether he genuinely believes in the limited powers of government bestowed by the constitution. But complaining that the copy of the constitution he used did not have the bill of rights is not a legitimate issue.

Most people are forgetting the reason why the constitution as originally proposed did not include the bill of rights — the founding fathers were concerned that if it did, people (and particularly the government) would think that they only had the enumerated rights — that they had freedom of speech because of the first amendment. Instead, the original idea was that people had freedom of speech because nothing in the constitution granted to congress the power to regulate it.

In modern times, the bill of rights act as essential limits to governmental power. But that is only because in modern times the constitution is seen as a limited grant of power from the government to the people instead of the exact opposite it was conceived as.

Late yesterday I posted (reposted) this article. I did search to make sure it was not previously posted and found nothing.

You might find interesting the difference in the title of the article in one day.

Brennan Takes Oath on Draft Constitution— Without Bill of Rights (your post)

Brennan takes oath on draft Constitution—without Bill of Rights (my post, 1 day later)

Note the only difference is the Caps on Words, I did not know that this was a case sensitive search function. And I had previously noticed the titles of some news articles are being altered slightly from day to the next. I am beginning to wonder if this is to reduce the exposure. This was top dead center on Drudge when I posted it.

If it's an early draft then it's not the Constitution. They didn't pass the draft, they passed the final document, complete with the Bill of Rights. A draft of the law is not the actual law itself.

He basically swore an oath to nothing. Appropriate for one of zero's men.

Not that I am surprised, nor am I excusing such assinine behavior and other excusing this political faux paux...

Swearing to defend the Constitution against all enemies foriegn and domestic...

Tells me that you swear to defend the Constitution “as ratified”, including the BOR...

What may offend me the most is that they put they grimy stinking hands on such a historical document, in that for years people have sworn on family bibles, bibles owned by famous political people, and yes, even Qurans (you know, two-ply toilet paper)...

Even though I am empathetic to the outrage, this is really a non-story...And if it gets yer bowels in an uproar??? Ok, I can dig it...Just be aware, that while you are consentrating on this crap, other things might be slipping under the radar...

And that IS exactly what they want to have happen...

Just my opinion...

I don't watch what they say, I watch what they do and this IS a story because it symbolizes a conscious effort on his part to AVOID using the Bible and secondly an avoidance to swear to uphold ANYTHING, really. Not a VALID Constitution and with no Amendments.

He is a Muslim convert and will not use a Bible. Any 'private swear in' or 'swearing in behind closed doors' is an affront to We The People. DESPICABLE!

My brother is just about the most staunch Democrat that you could ever meet, yet, he admits that Obama is a Muslim. He is extremely disappointed in Obama and his reason is that Obama is a Muslim and that everything that Obama is doing is bad for the country. Whenever someone says anything about Obama, he just shrugs and his shoulders and says, “We elected a Muslim, what do you expect?”

Hmmmm. No Bill or Rights, huh? Conveniently destroys every freedom demanded by the states. One also has to remember this version has no amendments. Think I'll exercise my prerogative and buy myself a slave or two. No need for me to do all this yard work, or wash my car, or ever shovel another ounce of snow. Not with my new permanent president for life who has no terms limits anymore.

Somebody in the Republican Party needs to get a set of balls, bring this Muzzie loving SOB POS back before a committee and read him the damn riot act. There also needs to be a FEDERAL law that states any official refusing to take an oath of office in public with their hand on a Holy Bible shall be immediately ineligible for that or any subsequent office greater than the least titled office in the United States.

Enough of these supposed elites rubbing our nose in our traditions. Time to start declaring persona non grata for these, cancerous, mental and moral degenerate Progressives.

What I find disturbing is that the oath is taken to The State (Constitution) instead of the final arbiter of all affairs (God)

Sounds like the substitution of Man for God.

Sounds like Communism as described by Whittaker Chambers: "...The Communist vision is the vision of man without God..."

"It's insane."

"Nobody takes an oath on the Constitution."

Actually, it has been done before at least once. "Openly bisexual", and apparently atheist Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema (D, AZ-9) did it. Also, some equally progressive whack-jobs have advocated this.

"This is weird beyond comprehension."

Worse than weird, it shows stunning ignorance.

First, a pledge is in essence a trade of one words or promise for an action or gift. One is collateral for the other. You don't pledge on the thing you pledge--it is nonsensical.

Second, it shows an utter lack of the historical context. As someone said, it is like you are holding the state as the almighty. The Founders would be horrified. It shows an utter lack of "We the people", and the Bill of Rights.

Third, there is no requirement to swear on a Bible or any religious document. If you are not religious, just don't use any book or document. It makes a mockery of religion.

My guess is that my brother did not vote in the last election. We never had the nerve to ask him. He said that about Obama being a Muslim after the first election. He felt duped, like someone who had been the victim of a con artist, so it wasn’t a good topic of conversation. He didn’t want to hear, “I told you so.”

This man and his admin should have never got anywehre near the white house because he chaeted on his state race, used fraud to get where he is, lied like hell, and now we get this crap

We should be outside the white house, millions of us protesting like they do in Egypt to have obama removed and to hell with his civilian security force

I want a proper conservative , one which doesn;t just do fical policy like libetarians wants but one which does that and social issues, get us back to how this country wa,s to what made this country, great and strong like Reagan did, enough of feces pokers and cross dressers telling us they should have acess to kids and be having their sham marriage or teaching it in schools.

If CA wants that crap or the north east then let them leave and leave us be elsewhere who want a strong family, strong country and a strong future for our children

Like I said, I empathise with all the outrage...

What would you proposed to do about this???

I’m more disturbed that the feckless wonders who were supposed to be there to keep it from getting this far, failed to do their jobs...

But even taking it out on them, it’s a futile endeavor...
