The global elite will not rest until they have revoked the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence. Over the last few years, they have engaged in a concerted attack on our founding documents and time-honored ideals. On Tuesday, the New York Times continued this trend with an article on the front page of its print edition.
Entitled ‘We the People’ Lose Appeal With People Around the World, the article by Adam Liptak argues that the Constitution is outdated, inflexible and no longer trendy. It cites an article published in June in The New York University Law Review that explains how America’s Constitution is “losing its appeal as a model for constitutional drafters elsewhere” as statists, bureaucrats and autocrats turn to examples presented by more malleable documents such as the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and those produced by India, South Africa, New Zealand and the United Nations.
The problem, Liptak notes, is that “rights guaranteed by the American Constitution are parsimonious by international standards, and they are frozen in amber.” In other words, the “problem” with the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence is that the rights enumerated there are not open for interpretation and cannot be changed by government.
But what really irks the elite is the idea that government only exists by the consent of the governed and “whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends [of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness], it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government,” as the Declaration of Independence states. In other words, it is the right of the people to revolt against government – preferably through peaceful means, but by violent revolution if need be, as Thomas Jefferson argued – when it becomes an oppressive tyranny, as it now is.
The very idea that the people have the right to abolish government scares the hell out of the ruling elite. The Second Amendment is under persistent attack not because guns are a danger to school children, but because guns and people well trained in their proper use are often required to resist and overthrow government tyranny. Control freaks never surrender power willingly.
The establishment is now openly assaulting the Constitution and the very idea of innate and god-given individual rights going back to the Magna Carta, the Habeas Corpus Act, the Petition of Right and English common law. The Constitution and the Declaration of Independence encapsulate and enumerate into law liberties that are the birthright of humanity. Government is not required to bestow them as the New York Times would have use believe. We are born with them despite trendiness or the dictates of commissars at the United Nations.
Obama has continued unabated the concerted attack on the Constitution initiated under his predecessors. Efforts to undermine the Constitution began in earnest with FDR, although earlier presidents – most notably Lincoln – set important precedents.
Obama’s task is to undermine due process and the separation of powers. From the NDAA to Obamacare and violating the will of Congress and the American people through signing statements and waging illegal wars without declaration or congressional consultation, Obama has amplified and expanded what George Bush and Bill Clinton before him began.
Obama’s letter to Congress claiming U.S. military power used with devastating result against the people of Libya was “legitimized” by the United Nations Security Council represents a watershed moment in the effort to trample the Constitution and transfer authority from the people to autocratic globalists. It is a modern version of the “long train of abuses and usurpations” mentioned by the founders in the Declaration of Independence.
It is up to the American people to prevent the destruction of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It probably cannot be accomplished from within the system. Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, Obama – these are the corrupted minions of globalists who fear the Rights of Man the same as vampires fear sunlight. They will further the destruction of liberty, not impede it and stop the solemn march to slavery and ultimately the destruction of civilization.
Ron Paul represented the best chance to restore the Constitution and rebuild our republic. He was plowed under by the establishment and its corporate media propaganda machine. Patriotic Americans must continue at all cost to oppose the efforts of the elite as they work to methodically turn the planet into a slave labor gulag with a high-tech police state control grid overlay. The effort must transcend any particular political candidate and live in the hearts of men and women as they resist tyranny.
Specific examples of the establishment’s campaign against the Constitution follow:
Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said recently the people of Egypt should not “look to the United States Constitution” as a blueprint for crafting the nation’s new constitution. Ginsberg apparently believes the Constitution is flawed because it spells out what the government cannot do instead of mandating what it should do (like telling citizens at gunpoint they must purchase expensive health insurance).
CNN contributor Fareed Zakaria has argued that the Constitution is outdated and its principles should be “debated and fixed” to conform with the modern era. He suggests “a set of amendments to modernize the Constitution for the 21st Century.”
Time Magazine ran a cover story last year trashing the Constitution. The story was entitled “Does It Still Mater?” It portrayed the Constitution as an outmoded document that we should ignore to whatever extent is expedient to pursue someone’s vision of a better society: “We cannot let the Constitution become an obstacle to a future with a sensible health care system, a globalized economy, and evolving sense of civil and political rights.”
In October 2011, two teams of lawyers – one American, the other British – debated the subject of whether the U.S. Declaration of Independence is illegal. “The Declaration of Independence was not only illegal, but actually treasonable. There is no legal principle then or now to allow a group of citizens to establish their own laws because they want to,” the BBC summarized.
Ignorance of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence is rampant, not only in the public at large but also in Congress where members swear to uphold the Constitution.
For instance, in 2010, House Majority Leader John Boehner of Ohio declared: ”This is my copy of the Constitution, and I’m going to stand here with the Founding Fathers who wrote in the Preamble, We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed with the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
He was quoting the Declaration of Independence, not the preamble to the Constitution.
The trashing for the Constitution is legion. In order to get an idea how much, simply type “Constitution outdated” in your favorite search engine.
