THANK YOU BILL CLINTON & LIBERAL SOCIALISTS!!
SELF ^ | 6/26/02 | PERSONAL

Posted on 06/26/2002 2:07:39 PM PDT by Elkiejg

This has to be one of the worst days I've witnessed in my 64 years on this earth.

Thank you BILL CLINTON. Because of you and your corrupt criminal dealings we have seen what appears to be the beginning of the end of our FREE AMERICA. I thought I had seen the worst of your 8 years in office - but today's action by the Ninth Circuit Court claiming the Pledge of Allegiance is UNCONSTITUTIONAL is the stark result of your unethical, radical, socialist actions against this country. After all, YOU appointed a majority of those judges.

You have left us with politicans such as Daschle, Leahy, Kennedy, Clinton et al - who do NOT care about this country. They care only for their political skins and getting and keeping POWER - their DRUG OF CHOICE. They do NOT care about issues vital to this country - war on terrorism, qualified judges, tax breaks for "middle America", etc., etc. They care only about their petty, selfish political games.

You planted a seed of greed and corruption by your actions, we are now seeing the results of that behavior - which you championed - in the fall of major corporations. You led the way - weak and greedy people followed.

Because of your actions and lies while in the WH, we now have GRADE SCHOOL children believing oral sex is o.k. After all, their President did it and said "it's not really sex". You have dumped the morals of this country in the gutter.

Due to your corruption and selling this country to our enemy, you have the blood of all those murdered on 9-11 AND in prior attacks on your hands.

How can you sleep at night?

I pray to GOD - yes GOD - that our country will be saved from the enemy within (liberal socialist America haters) and the enemy without.

If you get C-span 2, you can see that you are not alone. The Senate is outraged as well as the President. Oops, there's Tommy Dash-it-all. He's wimping out and sounds like he's stopping the discussion. LEAVE IT TO DASCHLE TO TABLE THIS IMPORTANT ISSUE! I could be wrong but it sounds like he's wimping out. He's doing procedural stuff, not expressing any CONCERN regarding the subversion of the USA!

I feel as awful as you do, elkiejg. God Bless America! Trent Lott is speaking now. He's P-OED TOO.

no problem. I think many of us are overwhelmed by this decision. It's a bit much to believe. The time to stop playing nice with these people was long ago, it may be too late to stop them.

The California Ninth Circuit Court and their Judge Margaret Morrow tossed out Free Republic's primary defense, fair use, in the WP/LAT lawsuit against FR. They are known as highly liberal.

This just may be the straw that broke the camel's back. America is calling in to shows and to their reps. The response is gonna be overwhelming...people have been pushed too far. This is the United States of America and the Pledge of Allegiance is part of that and if someone doesn't like it they don't hve to say it but..it is time they STOP telling the rest of what to do. I hope all of America stands up and rallys to this issue. America is STRONG and now is the time to let everyone know your feelings. I am an American inside and out...I will say the Pledge forever and I will teach it to my grandchildren and they too will say it proudly. How DARE someone pull this crap!

I just purchased a beautiful wooden sign in burgandy with white letters reading: "One Nation Under God." It is going up on my wall for all to see..."One Nation Under God." Those who are opposed should go where there is NO nation under God and see how fast they beat a path back to the good ole USA!

I got so angry listening to Sean Hannity this afternoon when he announced the decision, I had to pull over to the side of the road.

Chuck Colson has called America the "post-Christian Republic" and I think he got it right. We are now 50% Hispanic, the Arabs/Asians are popping out babies, while Americans are having fewer than 2 children per marriage. We are already a minority, thanks to the Hispanic population. I don't want to see the Census in 8 years that will show that we are a smaller minority, as Asians and Hispanics babyboom their way into getting rid of everything about America as we know it.

I am so distressed, I can barely type.

If this doesn't wake Americans up, I don't know what will.

California Ninth Circuit Court

Not a California court. It's a federal court that covers nine western states, based in San Francisco.

I am with you all the way...and why are we not surprised that it came from the People's Republic of California. This just may wake America up and let everyone know we are not only at war, we are in trouble. I hope and pray to GOD that this will go to the Supreme Court. There is outrage all over talk radio this afternoon.

These people are probably preparing a suit to have the words "In God We Trust" that is on all currency declared unconstitutional rendering all money worthless. These liberals will stop at nothing to destroy this country. Tell me, what is the difference between the destruction of the twin towers in New York and this. May GOD have mercy on their souls, for they no not what they do. America wake up! It's later than you think. Sorry folks, just needed to vent. Please get all those around you and vote Republican this November. It's our (and your) only hope.

Now you all know why the Founding Fathers put the Second Amendment second. Evil has always existed within the power hungry social molders. This is just another example of the faustian deal the left has made. If there is ever a 'war of ideology', if we fired one shot that would be a lot because none of these left-wing fruitcakes believe in firearm ownership. The limo-liberals hire security, and the idiots that vote the same as they do dial 911 and die. Ha.

I think this is one of the GREATEST days. The Ninth Socialist Circuit Court just handed the Republican Party the Senate in November and a big increase in seats in the House. This means they've just eaten their own: A Democratic Party with no power whatsoever is an irrelevant party that can no longer hurt us or subjugate us.

Bill would tell us that "he feels our pain!"

I couldn't agree with you more. I can imagine our our forefathers would feel about this. I think their firearms would not be hanging over their fireplaces after today!

However, the hispanics are Catholic.

They aren't the ones who are converting to islam; except for Padilla who was converted while in jail and took a muslim name. That's more nonsense, isn't it? America needs a lot of work - that's why we are here at FR. It's a good place to start. At least now it makes a case for more conservative judges and less liberal judges. This is bad for Daschle if he holds up Dubya's appointments.

At this juncture, to me, that just means he's really old. I don't care who appointed him. He's not capable of judging a Frog Jumping Contest.

Time for bush to fire the judges of the 9th who voted for this. This would send an unambiguous message to the rest of the federal judges.

You are so right. And once we take back the Senate and strengthen our hold on the House, we will have the political firepower to RESTRUCTURE the 9th Circuit, long a bane of civilization and civilized, God-fearing people everywhere, right out of existence.

The libertarian freaks are just as much to blame for this as the liberal democrats.

This decision doesn't even have a basis in Case law.

Supreme Court of New York 1811, in the Case of the People V Ruggles, 8 Johns 545-547, Chief Justice Chancellor Kent Stated:

The defendant was indicted ... in December, 1810, for that he did, on the 2nd day of September, 1810 ... wickedly, maliciously, and blasphemously, utter, and with a loud voice publish, in the presence and hearing of divers good and Christian people, of and concerning the Christian religion, and of and concerning Jesus Christ, the false, scandalous, malicious, wicked and blasphemous words following: "Jesus Christ was a bastard, and his mother must be a whore," in contempt of the Christian religion. .. . The defendant was tried and found guilty, and was sentenced by the court to be imprisoned for three months, and to pay a fine of $500.

The Prosecuting Attorney argued:

While the constitution of the State has saved the rights of conscience, and allowed a free and fair discussion of all points of controversy among religious sects, it has left the principal engrafted on the body of our common law, that Christianity is part of the laws of the State, untouched and unimpaired.

The Chief Justice delivered the opinion of the Court:

Such words uttered with such a disposition were an offense at common law. In Taylor's case the defendant was convicted upon information of speaking similar words, and the Court . . . said that Christianity was parcel of the law, and to cast contumelious reproaches upon it, tended to weaken the foundation of moral obligation, and the efficacy of oaths. And in the case of Rex v. Woolston, on a like conviction, the Court said . . . that whatever strikes at the root of Christianity tends manifestly to the dissolution of civil government. . . . The authorities show that blasphemy against God and . . . profane ridicule of Christ or the Holy Scriptures (which are equally treated as blasphemy), are offenses punishable at common law, whether uttered by words or writings . . . because it tends to corrupt the morals of the people, and to destroy good order. Such offenses have always been considered independent of any religious establishment or the rights of the Church. They are treated as affecting the essential interests of civil society. . . .

We stand equally in need, now as formerly, of all the moral discipline, and of those principles of virtue, which help to bind society together. The people of this State, in common with the people of this country, profess the general doctrines of Christianity, as the rule of their faith and practice; and to scandalize the author of these doctrines is not only ... impious, but . . . is a gross violation of decency and good order. Nothing could be more offensive to the virtuous part of the community, or more injurious to the tender morals of the young, than to declare such profanity lawful.. ..

The free, equal, and undisturbed enjoyment of religious' opinion, whatever it may be, and free and decent discussions on any religious subject, is granted and secured; but to revile ... the religion professed by almost the whole community, is an abuse of that right. . . . We are a Christian people, and the morality of the country is deeply engrafted upon Christianity, and not upon the doctrines or worship of those impostors [other religions].. .. [We are] people whose manners ... and whose morals have been elevated and inspired . . . by means of the Christian religion.

Though the constitution has discarded religious establishments, it does not forbid judicial cognizance of those offenses against religion and morality which have no reference to any such establishment. . . . This [constitutional] declaration (noble and magnanimous as it is, when duly understood) never meant to withdraw religion in general, and with it the best sanctions of moral and social obligation from all consideration and notice of the law. . . . To construe it as breaking down the common law barriers against licentious, wanton, and impious attacks upon Christianity itself, would be an enormous perversion of its meaning. . . . Christianity, in its enlarged sense, as a religion revealed and taught in the Bible, is not unknown to our law. . . . The Court are accordingly of opinion that the judgment below must be affirmed: [that blasphemy against God, and contumelious reproaches, and profane ridicule of Christ or the Holy Scriptures, are offenses punishable at the common law, whether uttered by words or writings].

The Supreme Court in the case of Lidenmuller V The People, 33 Barbour, 561 Stated:

Christianity...is in fact, and ever has been, the religion of the people. The fact is everwhere prominent in all our civil and political history, and has been, from the first, recognized and acted upon by the people, and well as by constitutional conventions, by legislatures and by courts of justice.

The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania 1817, in the Case of The Commonwealth V Wolf stated the courts opinion as follows:

Laws cannot be administered in any civilized government unless the people are taught to revere the sanctity of an oath, and look to a future state of rewards and punishments for the deeds of this life, It is of the utmost moment, therefore, that they should be reminded of their religious duties at stated periods.... A wise policy would naturally lead to the formation of laws calculated to subserve those salutary purposes. The invaluable privilege of the rights of conscience secured to us by the constitution of the commonwealth, was never intended to shelter those persons, who, out of mere caprice, would directly oppose those laws for the pleasure of showing their contempt and abhorrence of the religious opinions of the great mass of the citizens.

The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania 1824, in the Case of Updegraph V The Commonwealth 11 Serg. & R. 393-394, 398-399, 402, 507 (1824) recorded the Courts Declaration that:

Abner Updegraph . . . on the 12th day of December [1821] . . .not having the fear of God before his eyes . . . contriving and intending to scandalize, and bring into disrepute, and vilify the Christian religion and the scriptures of truth, in the Presence and hearing of several persons ... did unlawfully, wickedly and premeditatively, despitefully and blasphemously say . . . : "That the Holy Scriptures were a mere fable: that they were a contradiction, and that although they contained a number of good things, yet they contained a great many lies." To the great dishonor of Almighty God, to the great scandal of the profession of the Christian religion.

The jury . . . finds a malicious intention in the speaker to vilify the Christian religion and the scriptures, and this court cannot look beyond the record, nor take any notice of the allegation, that the words were uttered by the defendant, a member of a debating association, which convened weekly for discussion and mutual information... . That there is an association in which so serious a subject is treated with so much levity, indecency and scurrility ... I am sorry to hear, for it would prove a nursery of vice, a school of preparation to qualify young men for the gallows, and young women for the brothel, and there is not a skeptic of decent manners and good morals, who would not consider such debating clubs as a common nuisance and disgrace to the city. .. . It was the out-pouring of an invective, so vulgarly shocking and insulting, that the lowest grade of civil authority ought not to be subject to it, but when spoken in a Christian land, and to a Christian audience, the highest offence conna bones mores; and even if Christianity was not part of the law of the land, it is the popular religion of the country, an insult on which would be indictable.

The assertion is once more made, that Christianity never was received as part of the common law of this Christian land; and it is added, that if it was, it was virtually repealed by the constitution of the United States, and of this state. . . . If the argument be worth anything, all the laws which have Christianity for their object--all would be carried away at one fell swoop-the act against cursing and swearing, and breach of the Lord's day; the act forbidding incestuous marriages, perjury by taking a false oath upon the book, fornication and adultery ...for all these are founded on Christianity--- for all these are restraints upon civil liberty. ...

We will first dispose of what is considered the grand objection--the constitutionality of Christianity--for, in effect, that is the question. Christianity, general Christianity, is and always has been a part of the common law . . . not Christianity founded on any particular religious tenets; not Christianity with an established church ... but Christianity with liberty of conscience to all men.

Thus this wise legislature framed this great body of laws, for a Christian country and Christian people. This is the Christianity of the common law . . . and thus, it is irrefragably proved, that the laws and institutions of this state are built on the foundation of reverence for Christianity. . . . In this the constitution of the United States has made no alteration, nor in the great body of the laws which was an incorporation of the common-law doctrine of Christianity . . . without which no free government can long exist.

To prohibit the open, public and explicit denial of the popular religion of a country is a necessary measure to preserve the tranquillity of a government. Of this, no person in a Christian country can complain. . . . In the Supreme Court of New York it was solemnly determined, that Christianity was part of the law of the land, and that to revile the Holy Scriptures was an indictable offence. The case assumes, says Chief Justice Kent, that we are a Christian people, and the morality of the country is deeply engrafted on Christianity. The People v. Ruggles.

No society can tolerate a willful and despiteful attempt to subvert its religion, no more than it would to break down its laws--a general, malicious and deliberate intent to overthrow Christianity, general Christianity. Without these restraints no free government could long exist. It is liberty run mad to declaim against the punishment of these offences, or to assert that the punishment is hostile to the spirit and genius of our government. They are far from being true friends to liberty who support this doctrine, and the promulgation of such opinions, and general receipt of them among the people, would be the sure forerunners of anarchy, and finally, of despotism. No free government now exists in the world unless where Christianity is acknowledged, and is the religion of the country.... Its foundations are broad and strong, and deep. .. it is the purest system of morality, the firmest auxiliary, and only stable support of all human laws. . . .

Christianity is part of the common law; the act against blasphemy is neither obsolete nor virtually repealed; nor is Christianity inconsistent with our free governments or the genius of the people.

While our own free constitution secures liberty of conscience and freedom of religious worship to all, it is not necessary to maintain that any man should have the right publicly to vilify the religion of his neighbors and of the country; these two privileges are directly opposed.

The Supreme Court of the State of South Carolina in 1846 in the case of City of Charleston V S.A. Benjamin cites an individual who broke the Ordinance that stated: "No Person or persons whatsoever shall publicly expose to sale, or sell... any goods, wares or merchandise whatsoever upon the Lord's day." The court convicted the man and came to the conclusion: "I agree fully to what is beautifully and appropriately said in Updengraph V The Commonwealth.... Christianity, general Christianity, is an always has been, a part of the common law; "not Christianity with an established church... but Christianity with liberty of conscience to all men."

When Clinton was elected the first time, my dad, a WWII veteran, said it was the first time in his life he was ashamed to be an American.

He passed away in 1994--so he missed the worst of Clinton and now his legacy, but he sure was right.

That is an aweful lot of hysteria over a phrase foolishly added to the pledge in 1954.

The whole idea of adding it was simply pushy arogance by insecure Christians and was supported by Ike in order to buy greater support fromn the conservative wing of the Republican party.

People secure in their faith would never have felt the need to modify the Pledge in the first place.

I am surprised it took this long to get shot down

It only took one man with a seven year old child. The question becomes, WHO IS FINANCING HIM? WHO WILL BE FINANCING HIM WHEN THIS CASE REACHES THE SUPREME COURT? His financial backers are using this patsy to subvert our government and if we don't put a stop to it, absolutely, there will be U.S. Marshalls in every classrooms to ensure the pledge is not spoken or children will be instructed to "snitch" on their teachers if they ever utter "Under God". That sounds like a very different place than the America we love but that's the plan, I'm afraid.

I'm not overwhelmed, given the source of this decision, it wasn't unexpected. However, I am troubled and angered (to put it mildly)... I feel this liberal scum element of the left coast has done this great nation a tremendous disservice.

Pledge of Allegiance is unconstitutional, due to the phrase "under God."

Well that means that the U.S. Dollar is also unconstitutional because it has the words ‘in God we trust”, therefore you cannot use U.S. Currency. Since you cannot use the ‘unconstitutional‘ U.S. Currency, there is no way to pay taxes to the Government.

So no more paying taxes because the U.S. Currency is unconstitutional.

Now Libs go figure our how to pay for your programs, because you just gave me an out to paying taxes.

Don’t want to violate the U.S Constitution now do we.................

I've never met an insecure Christian EVER and I'm a boomer and used to say the Pledge the 1954 way. This is a slippery slope when you can arrest teachers for uttering the Pledge of Allegiance. Shouldn't we be trying to arrest kidnappers and terrorists instead? Why does one man and a 7 year old girl have more rights than the entire Western United States' citizens? I agree with the POTUS - RIDICULOUS! Fv, A Secure Christian.

The point is that we should blame ourselves, its our freakin fault because some of us would rather attack each other than vote Republican, we would rather support hopeless saps like Harry Browne than get behind Bush.

Receiving God's blessings requires acknowledging Him in all things, especially for the safety and prosperity of this nation and her people.

I will venture a guess that I took Civics at a time when it still meant something and you did not.

Good behavior, or more specifically the lack thereof rightfully includes making un-Constitutional decisions.

Are you going to point out the reference in the Constitution to impeaching judges or do I need to re-read that document and verify for myself that it is not there?

Regards

I would challenge your assertion, since you obviously dont understand how the judiciary works.
