OBAMAS REICHSTAG FIRE MOMENT TAKES THE STAGE
Sen. Ted Cruz dropped a bombshell, as you will see in this video, where he emphatically states that the United States Senate this year will vote on a Constitutional amendment to effectively repeal the First Amendment. This is Senate Joint Resolution 19 that Se. Cruz is referring to. It proposes an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relating to contributions and expenditures intended to affect elections.

This vote will give the Congress the plenary power and unlimited authority to regulate political speech. The door that they plan on using revolves around campaign finance reform, but will extend to all areas of political speech across the board.
When you think it cant get any worse, it does, Cruz said. This year, Im sorry to tell you, the United States Senate is going to be voting on a constitutional amendment to repeal the First Amendment.
I am telling you I am not making this up. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has announced the Senate Democrats are scheduling a vote on a constitutional amendment to give Congress the authority to regulate political speech because elected officials have decided they dont like it when the citizenry has the temerity to criticize what theyve done, he added.

Or has Ubama removed that requirement?
Tar and Feather. It is time.
Obama isn’t supposed to legislate from the Oval Office, but he does.
Within the law.
That is an excellent question for which Senator Cruz has a lot of splaynin to do.The article mentions The Reichstag Fire.It is conceivable that the First Amendment rights will be curbed in ways that are not legal or Constitutional.
The Dems in the Senate can vote all they want, it don’t get passed in the House, and saure won’t pass the states. Obozo has no say in the matter.............................
its about time to saddle up and ride to the sound of the guns
Two Thirds of each house of the Congress. Three Fifths of the states.
and he’s planning on staying in the Oval Office for many more years, this is the first step
Obama has two more years to destroy this country fully, he won’t leave til he knows NO Republican President can ever fix what he has done
Doesn’t it have to go through the Supreme Court.
This is the Democrats playing trickery.
They did it with Sen. McCain - making him a ‘natural born citizen’ though he wasn’t born in the USA. The method used was in violation of the U.S.Constitution’s stated requirement on altering the document.
I predict there will be NO ratification by two-thirds majority of the States; they will ram it down everyone’e throats, in a clear call to civil disobedience.
Good news is we all have guns and no idea what to do with them.
Ratification requires three-fourths, not two-thirds.
Torches and pitchforks- it’s WAY past time.
The Right to Free Speech is a Natural Right.
Yeah lets all be scared of proposed constitutional amendments! /sarc
There is nothing here.
You are correct and I am wrong. Thank you for the correction.
Interesting. Thanks for posting.
Load and lock.
The amendment process is clearly written in the Constitution. Every conservative should know the Constitution. It's not a difficult document, unless you let a lawyer read it.
Does ANYONE here have any doubts NOW that we are suffering from a fascist movement, that America elected....twice??
Jonah Goldberg is RIGHT!
Now how do we rid ourselves of them , now that America knows who and what they are?
Does Cruz advize impeachment of Holder, Obama and others?
“Natural rights are those not contingent upon the laws, customs, or beliefs of any particular culture or government, and therefore universal and inalienable (i.e., cannot be sold, transferred, or removed).”
The Constitution's Article V indicates that amendments to the Constitution actually have to be ratified by 3/4 of the states.
After watching the video, Harvard Law School-indocrinated Cruz was reasonably giving the wrong impression that the Senate can amend the Constitution. So I'm more dissapointed with Cruz then I already was. And of course the constitutionally ignorant "conservative" crowd that he seemed to be addressing was seemingly swallowing every word that he said.
Yep, McLame will love it. It’s bigger and better than McCain/Feingold and SCOTUS won’t mess with it because our first black president will have signed it.
Bombshell? Prolly not. IMHO, NTEB is pimping for hits with am outrageous headline.
Their claim is true. And has been news for some time.
The Constitution’s Article V indicates that amendments to the Constitution actually have to be ratified by 3/4 of the states.
and Obama”s Migrant Voter Program(move Dems from Blue states to Reds states and vote in both) will fix that
Link to breitbart story on this:
I googled Mr. Cruz’ phrase :
” I am telling you I am not making this up. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has announced the Senate Democrats are scheduling a vote a constitutional amendment to give Congress the authority to regulate political speech because elected officials have decided they dont like it when the citizenry has the temerity to criticize what theyve done, “
Ping to posts about how a constitutional amendment gets passed:
3/4 of states required to ratify/
2/3s of Senate required to propose.
It’s a long shot but it is dangerous because it seems to focus on campaign funds. But where is free speech more important than in the political arena? So Ted Cruz is spot on as usual to call it what it is, a repeal or neutering of the First Amendment.
It’s a disgrace the way the scum now infesting our country will trade our freedom for freebies and handouts. A lot of good people died for us to have that freedom. It didn’t belong to the freeloading bottom feeders to give it away.
The Constitution provides that an amendment may be proposed either by the Congress with a two-thirds majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate or by a constitutional convention called for by two-thirds of the State legislatures. None of the 27 amendments to the Constitution have been proposed by constitutional convention. The Congress proposes an amendment in the form of a joint resolution. Since the President does not have a constitutional role in the amendment process, the joint resolution does not go to the White House for signature or approval. The original document is forwarded directly to NARA’s Office of the Federal Register (OFR) for processing and publication. The OFR adds legislative history notes to the joint resolution and publishes it in slip law format. The OFR also assembles an information package for the States which includes formal “red-line” copies of the joint resolution, copies of the joint resolution in slip law format, and the statutory procedure for ratification under 1 U.S.C. 106b.
2/3s of Senate required to propose.
Harry already changed this

And ten of those were passed immediately after the Constitution was ratified. Not much worry of this passing. The mere proposal of such an amendment could do grave harm to the Democrats (at least I can hope, can't I?).
The amendatory process under Article V consists of three steps: Proposal, Disposal, and Ratification.
There are two ways to propose an amendment to the Constitution.
Article V gives Congress and an Amendments Convention exactly the same power to propose amendments, no more and no less.
Once Congress, or an Amendments Convention, proposes amendments, Congress must decide whether the states will ratify by the:
The State Ratifying Convention Method has only been used twice: once to ratify the Constitution, and once to ratify the 21st Amendment repealing Prohibition.
Depending upon which ratification method is chosen by Congress, either the state legislatures vote up-or-down on the proposed amendment, or the voters elect a state ratifying convention to vote up-or-down. If three-quarters of the states vote to ratify, the amendment becomes part of the Constitution.
Harry Reid can’t change it. It’s hard-coded in the Constitution itself.
I'm sure the media would jump up and say, "Well, there it is! It's done! You can't undo it now!!"
The Senate can propose amendments to the Constitution and that is what they are planning to do.
Ted Cruz is spot on in calling this out because the democrats and their republican establishment surrogates will make this amendment look like it’s focused only on campaign financing. Senator Cruz is educating people that it goes far beyond campaign financing to the suppression of free speech in effect neutering the First Amendment.
Ted Cruz is fine.
Not gonna happen.
It can’t be done that way. And besides, the House must also pass it by a two-thirds margin before it can go out to the states for ratification.
But it can be done that way ... in a dictatorship.
We aren’t in a dictatorship yet. Cool your jets, please.
