    President Joe Biden met with Senate Judiciary leaders on Tuesday, reminding them that the United States Constitution was “always evolving” in his public remarks at the meeting. “You know there’s always a renewed national debate every time we nominate, any president nominates a justice, because the Constitution is always evolving slightly,” Biden said, referring to his upcoming choice of a nominee to replace the retiring Justice Stephen Breyer on the Supreme Court.
  • Socialists and Communists Are Constitutionally Ineligible to Hold Office

    If the Constitution were construed in accordance with its plain and intended meaning, there would be no question but that every member of Congress who is a self-described socialist would be ineligible to hold federal or state legislative, executive, and judicial office. Among self-avowed socialists serving in Congress are Democratic Socialists of America members Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez; Rashida Tlaib; Cori Bush; and Jamaal Bowman. Senator Bernie Sanders and Congresswoman Ilhan Omar likewise describe themselves as “democratic socialists.” None is eligible to be in office under Article VI, Clause 3 of the Constitution. Moreover, legislators, executives, and jurists on the state and...

    EXC: Biden Exec Order Hints At Removal Of Oath Of Allegiance For New Migrants.The Executive Order on Restoring Faith in Our Legal Immigration Systems and Strengthening Integration and Inclusion Efforts for New Americans outlines the White House effort to “promote naturalization” in section five. The order outlines how various people – including the Secretary of State, the Attorney General, and the Secretary of Homeland Security – would conduct a review of existing components of the immigration process. Among the barriers to citizenship potentially on the chopping block is the oath of allegiance – which requires citizens to “renounce and abjure...
  • ‘So Help Me God’ No More: Democrats Give House Traditions a Makeover [barf alert]

    The witness rose from her seat, raised her right hand, and swore to tell the truth before Congress. But four words were missing: “So help me God.” In the House of Representatives, to the winner go the spoils, and Democrats, the new decision makers, control everything, including what legislation gets a vote and the minutiae of procedural choices, such as whether witnesses must utter the traditional plea for divine aid. Democratic chairmen and chairwomen of several key committees have deemed no such entreaty is necessary. “I think God belongs in religious institutions: in temple, in church, in cathedral, in mosque...

    The plan(Texas wall funding) comes as President Trump heads to El Paso, Texas, on Monday evening for a campaign rally in the border town where former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) — the failed 2018 Democrat Senate candidate in Texas, who also is considering a potential 2020 presidential bid — is holding a counter-rally. It also comes as negotiators on Capitol Hill in Washington, just five days before Friday’s deadline, have reportedly reached an impasse in negotiations over funding for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other government agencies totaling about a quarter of the federal government. Just...
  • Why, Despite Media Fake News, Rep. Rashida Tlaib Didn't Want to Use Jefferson's Koran

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib appears to have allowed the media to think that the radical Muslim would be sworn in to office on a copy of "Thomas Jefferson's Koran". The media had previously found Thomas Jefferson's Koran to be a very useful propaganda stunt for making it appear that Islam is as America as... Thomas Jefferson. But then Rep. Rashida Tlaib announced that she hadn't actually used Jefferson's Koran, but an actual Koran. Despite her announcement, many media outlets didn't bother correcting their fake news. But that's typical of the media, which acts as the communications arm for the most radical...

    They challenge the use of teargas by border patrol agents under attack. The news footage of the thousands of members of the “migrant” caravan showed young men throwing rocks at U.S. Border Patrol agents and attempting to charge the U.S./Mexican border.  The Border Patrol agents were clearly under attack and had only two courses of action to take. The beleaguered agents could step aside or even retreat and permit their positions to be overrun by hundreds or even thousands of illegal aliens among whom are likely criminals, gang members and even those affiliated with terrorism, who would then disperse into...
  • 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...

    Charting Course ^ | 9/18/14 | Steve Berman
      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. A county executive from Long Island, N.Y., used the Bible app on an iPad to be sworn in last year and a few months ago a group of firefighters from New Jersey huddled around a Kindle Bible when they took...

    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...

    Breitbart TV ^ | 4/30/2013
    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,"...

But not only are they interfering with the legal representation, Victoria Toensing, one of the attorneys representing the whistleblowers, says that they have clients in both the State Dept. and CIA who are being threatened that if they come forward their careers will be over.

    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.
