Skip to comments.Brennan takes oath on draft Constitutionówithout Bill of Rights
Posted on 03/08/2013 7:13:18 PM PST by Texas Fossil
Vice President Joe Biden swears in CIA Director John Brennan at the White House, March 8, 2013.
This is probably not the symbolism the White House wanted. Hours after CIA Director John Brennan took the oath of officebehind closed doors, far away from the press, perhaps befitting his status as America's top spythe White House took pains to emphasize the symbolism of the ceremony.

Not on Bible? Or Koran? (barf)
But on a never ratified version of the Constitution.
No freedom of speech or the press, no right to bear arms, no Fourth Amendment ban on unreasonable searches and seizures, and no right to a jury trial.
Officials do not swear an oath on the Constitution, they swear an oath to "Protect and Defend" the Constitution (the real one).
More Obozo treachery. Or is it ineptitude?
How do we know he actually took the oath ... not that it would matter to most folks today.
Ouija Board is more likely for this crew.
Not to mention, that bare hands should not touch that document.
Related must read. Unable to post due to copyright complaint.
No one in the O_btards administration has the slightest reverence for our founders, their documents, the rule of law and for Christianity or the Jews.
Wow! Thanks for posting...this is important stuff.
That said, Brennan is probably so ignorant he doesn’t even know this, and as a Muslim convert, he probably hasn’t picked his head up off his prayer mat long enough to care. But the people behind him know it.
I can’t believe that a representative of our major enemy is now in charge of our security services.
“How do we know he actually took the oath ... not that it would matter to most folks today.”
It doesn’t really matter to me because I wouldn’t trust him if he took the oath fifty times with both hands on the bible and a copy of the constitution stuck to his forehead.
This was Top Dead Center on Drudge.
Right below was the link only that I referenced in this thread.
Both are related. Drudge is out on point tonight.
It is Friday night, this is when the really important news is slipped through.
His being in the same room with that document had to have some corrosive effect on it. Just say’n
“Not to mention, that bare hands should not touch that document.”
They didn’t - not the doubtlessly acid free cover on which Brennan’s hand rests.
I’m thinking of opening a business that sells tar & feathers, gallows, rails, torches and related supplies. Any investors out there? LOL
You know how the Muslims like to desecrate things nit Islamist...
I can’t even believe what has happened. ..a muzzle at head of CIA, Potus, Muslim brotherhood throughout our government..all because we have enriched them by not drilling our own oil and the liberals like to bend over into pretzels to show tolerance for those who hate us. And don’t get me started on the Rinos.
This will not end well!
Put me down.... and I want the food concessions, beer gardens and parking lots.
We’ll make a killing.
You need to include old tires and gasoline cans.
“The Chrisis” by Thomas Paine
These are the times that try men’s souls.
The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to TAX) but “to BIND us in ALL CASES WHATSOEVER” and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious; for so unlimited a power can belong only to God.
I honestly just want grown ups to be running the country again, no throwing out their dolls because they don;t get their way over decreases in their increased spending, no more throwing tantrums over the slighest crap, just get grown ups back running the country please.
Muslim converts, muslim terrorists getting rights, giving guns to drugs losrds, going to sleep as Americans die in an attack
has anyone asked him or anyone in Govt if he;s a muslim?
I’m so frigging ticked off right now that we have kids and immature fools but now this
Can you send me good information about Brennan being a Muslim convert. My local radio show host’s director/show coordinator said that there was no evidence of Brennan being Muslim. Just figured that I would send evidence to him.
Not correct. It was ratified in 1788 without the first 10 Amendments.
There was a debate at the time with one side fearing that Congress would have too much power and infringe on rights and the other saying that a bill of rights enumerating certain rights could well be used at some point in time to deny rights that were not enumerated in the document.
The anti-Federalists won that debate during the ratification process with an agreement that the First Congress would enact a Bill of Rights, which it then did -- the 1st Ten Amendments.
But keep in mind. The Congress and the Courts, until the post civil war and the passage of the 14th Amendment, did not consider the Bill of Rights as a check on State Laws, but only on Federal Laws.
The states, then depending on their own constitutions, had a lot of leeway as far as infringing on what we now consider to be basic civil liberties and could make laws that clearly violated the Federal Bill of Rights.
As an example, you right to free speech was not respected in some states before the 14th Amendment if your speech happened to advocate abolition. People could be charged under state laws back then and the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution did not protect them in the least. The 1st Amendment only said that Congress can not restrict speech, but it did not keep the states from doing so.
That changed with the 14th Amendment.
Since the only way to save the Republic is to take the vote from the lazy and stupid, it may be time to start the train rolling down that track.
A tad bit South African, but okay.
Instead, they’d disenfranchise veterans and the Kulaks.
I stand corrected.
By 1786, defects in the post-Revolutionary War Articles of Confederation were apparent, such as the lack of central authority over foreign and domestic commerce. Congress endorsed a plan to draft a new constitution, and on May 25, 1787, the Constitutional Convention convened at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. On September 17, 1787, after three months of debate moderated by convention president George Washington, the new U.S. constitution, which created a strong federal government with an intricate system of checks and balances, was signed by 38 of the 41 delegates present at the conclusion of the convention. As dictated by Article VII, the document would not become binding until it was ratified by nine of the 13 states.
Beginning on December 7, five states—Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, and Connecticut—ratified it in quick succession. However, other states, especially Massachusetts, opposed the document, as it failed to reserve undelegated powers to the states and lacked constitutional protection of basic political rights, such as freedom of speech, religion, and the press. In February 1788, a compromise was reached under which Massachusetts and other states would agree to ratify the document with the assurance that amendments would be immediately proposed. The Constitution was thus narrowly ratified in Massachusetts, followed by Maryland and South Carolina. On June 21, 1788, New Hampshire became the ninth state to ratify the document, and it was subsequently agreed that government under the U.S. Constitution would begin on March 4, 1789. In June, Virginia ratified the Constitution, followed by New York in July.
On September 25, 1789, the first Congress of the United States adopted 12 amendments to the U.S. Constitution—the Bill of Rights—and sent them to the states for ratification. Ten of these amendments were ratified in 1791. In November 1789, North Carolina became the 12th state to ratify the U.S. Constitution. Rhode Island, which opposed federal control of currency and was critical of compromise on the issue of slavery, resisted ratifying the Constitution until the U.S. government threatened to sever commercial relations with the state. On May 29, 1790, Rhode Island voted by two votes to ratify the document, and the last of the original 13 colonies joined the United States. Today the U.S. Constitution is the oldest written constitution in operation in the world.
At what point did the Congress and Executive decide that they no longer had to abide by the established rule of law?
That is clearly where we are at.
Obozo: “We don’t need no stinkin Laws! We don’t need no stinkin Congress! I rule the Courts!”
All 3 branches of government know he is acting illegally and do nothing.
All 3 branches of government know he past is a total fabrication, totally conjured out of nothing.
The direction of this movement is not from within the U.S. It is bigger than George Soros, bigger than the Builder Burgers, bigger than Obozo’s Saudi masters.
Where and who?
It is clear by his actions that Obozo and his minions serve the “father-of-Lies”.
Unfortunately, I can’t give you any direct information, because he’s pretty cagey about it and only reveals it through his attitudes (praise Islam all the time)...and the fact that it also seems to be known that he whips out his prayer rug every day. If you saw Zero Dark Thirty, the non-Arab State Dept. apparatchik praying on the prayer rug was supposed to be Brennan.
Yes, it would be wonderful to have the grownups back in charge. Even though I didn’t agree with Bush all the time, at least I thought he was rational, honorable and was doing what he thought was the best thing for the country and not for himself. Bambi, on the other hand, seems to hate us, and all he wants out of us is those cool vacations.
Swearing in somebody on a Friday late afternoon means they want to bury it deep. Very upsetting.
Hmmm.. no Bible.....and no Koran.
Adds fuel to the firethat Brennan is a secret muslim (remember the big CIA spook in Zero-Dark Thirty on his prayer rug??)
The Congresspersons that voted in favor of this Muslim ,Brennan, must someday and somehow be made to answer to their perfidious against the Constitution of the USA. With Muslims now in the USA agitating for a Sharia government/law nation it would boggle the minds of the Founders for such an event to occur.
how did that filibuster work out?
It's never that...it's contrived and on purpose.
Absolutely, it’s called conflict of interest.
