  • Will John Kerry pardon Hillary Clinton on January 20th? He can.

    How could John Kerry pardon Hillary Clinton? After all, it is the President of the United States, not the Secretary of State, who is empowered by the Constitution “to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.” Art. II, Section 2, United States Constitution. Secretary of State John Kerry will not be President of the United States on Friday, so how could he pardon Hillary Clinton? The incumbent President’s term expires, and Donald Trump’s Presidency begins, at noon, on January 20th. XXth Amendment, Section 1, United States Constitution. But Donald Trump will not...
  • No, the Constitution Does Not Bar ‘Religious Tests’ in Immigration Law

    National Review ^ | July 30, 2016 | Andrew McCarthy
    Of all the ignorant pronouncements in the 2016 presidential campaign, the dumbest may be that the Constitution forbids a “religious test” in the vetting of immigrants. Monotonously repeated in political speeches and talking-head blather, this claim is heedless of the Islamic doctrinal roots on which foreign-born Islamists and the jihadists they breed base their anti-Americanism. It is also dead wrong. The clause said to be the source of this drivel is found in Article VI. As you’ll no doubt be shocked to learn, it has utterly nothing to do with immigration. The clause states, “no religious Test shall ever be...

      So help me, me. In a victory for the tombstone-dancing Military Religious Freedom Foundation (whose name implies the opposite of what they actually believe), the Air Force reversed its 2013 legal opinion requiring recruits to recite the entire Oath of Office when enlisting or receiving a commission in the U.S. Air Force.  By entire oath I mean including the part where “So help me God” is said at the end. The issue was originally raised back in 2013 when the MRFF found that the Air Force was enforcing the Federal laws requiring the entire oath as written.  I never...

    It was called the wave of the future—the recently tapped U.S. ambassador to Switzerland was sworn in last month with her hand not on a paper Bible, but on top of a Kindle. Techies called it revolutionary and applauded Suzi Levine for making history. But she wasn’t the only one who went high-tech when she took the oath of office.

    Editor's Note: This column was coauthored by Bob Morrison. President Obama's choice to be Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) was approved by the Senate on a vote of 63-34, with thirteen Republicans voting to confirm him. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) created quite a stir with his 13-hour filibuster against the Brennan nomination. Not until he received written assurances from Attorney General Eric Holder that U.S. citizens would not be targeted for killing by drones on U.S. soil would the doughty Kentuckian stand down. Good for him. John Brennan then proceeded to take the Oath of Office, as administered by Vice...

    Acting Deputy Spokesman Patrick Ventrell defended the State Department restricting access to Congress from lower-level staffers directly involved with the Benghazi investigation. Ventrell said that it was "appropriate" for the FBI and the Accountability Review Board to interview the Department employees but that Congress should only have access to their superiors. "Just as you wouldn’t have necessarily a soldier or troops called as witnesses, you have their superior officers, that’s the same practice for the State Department," Ventrell argued. Ventrell went on to say, "I think that these folks want to be able to continue their professional duties and activities,"...

    WASHINGTON --A visibly infuriated President Barack Obama surrounded himself with tear-stained parents of Connecticut school shooting victims Wednesday after the Senate voted down a measure designed to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and declared it a "pretty shameful day for Washington." He said a minority of senators decided "it wasn't worth it" to protect the nation's children. The Senate, which is controlled by the president's own party, handed him a stinging first defeat for his second term by voting down a bipartisan compromise to expand background checks for gun buyers.

    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...

    Give Obama A Pass on Oath Flub? Have you heard? Chief Justice Roberts mixed some words around in the Presidential oath that Presidents take upon assuming the office. The oath should read as follows: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." It seems that Chief Justice Roberts put the word "faithfully" in the wrong place. It was then repeated incorrectly by Mr. Obama. Should we give Mr. Obama a pass?...

    Several constitutional lawyers said President Barack Obama should, just to be safe, retake the oath of office that Chief Justice John Roberts flubbed. The 35-word oath is explicitly prescribed in the Constitution, Article II, Section One, which says the president "shall" take the oath "before he enteron the execution of his office." It was discussed during the Constitutional Convention. Roberts misplaced the word "faithfully," at which point Obama paused quizzically, and then Roberts corrected himself, but then Obama repeated the words as Roberts initially said them. The oath reads: "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office...

    The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland Security Department may get from Arizona police. Administration officials, speaking on condition they not be named, told reporters they expect to see an increase in the number of calls they get from Arizona police — but that won’t change President Obama’s decision to limit whom the government actually tries to detain and deport. “We will not be issuing detainers...

He singled out the Arizona bill - which would make it crime to be in the state without documentation - now before Republican Gov. Janice Brewer. The governor has until Saturday to decide...

    We are pleased to announce that FreeRepublic and Jim Robinson have established an Alliance Link to the Restore the Constitution effort, The Independent Movement for Constitutional Restoration (IAM-CR).

We invite all members of FreeRepublic to review our twelve constitutional principles and then JOIN US and...

    Why don't he Joint Chiefs go to Obama and say "Sir, you must either present a valid full form birth certificate, step down, or we will remove you from office by force." Isn't it their duty to do something like that? Isn't their accepting orders from Obama potentially carrying out illegal orders?

    Video of NYS Senate Democrats sitting defiantly through the Pledge of Allegiance in protest after losing political control of the Chamber to Republicans. Only one courageous Senator tried to stand to honor the flag, but he was immedaietly pulled down into his seat by fellow Democrats. The video is from WCBS-2 TV on 6/23/09, taped during a "special session" of the Senate called by Democrat Gov. David Paterson in an effort to end a three-week walkout by Democrats that has brought government to a screeching halt. Grim-faced Democrats refused to acknowledge even their presence in the Chamber, failing to answer...

    The Enemy Within Many of our public officials have broken their oath of office. They affirm or swear that they will support the Constitution and defend it “against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” There is the foreign threat of Marxist subversion and aggression. More dangerous, however, are the domestic enemies - individuals whose actions and attitudes are corrupting the Constitution. Those individuals include some of the very government officials sworn to uphold the Constitution. Actions by the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the federal government have proven that many officeholders apparently do not understand the Constitution. If they do...
  • Secret second oath or lack of organization?

    I asked a question earlier today regarding Obama's second oath-taking and the lack of a Bible. I had several good responses, including some which noted that the Constitution does not indicate that a Bible should be used, and one person even pointed out that the second President, John Adams, may have used a law book instead of the Bible. So, to those who gave thoughtful responses... Thank you. However, now I have another question... And don't get me wrong, this is just a question. I'm not trying to bash Obama. Fox News is reporting that the second swearing-in ceremony seems...
  • Is he really the president yet?

    OK... So everyone knows that Obama screwed up while taking the oath of office. And most people know by now that he took the oath a second time, just to be sure (as did two previous Presidents - Chester Arthur and Calvin Coolidge). But did he screw it up the second time also?
