PostSubject: Brennan takes oath on draft Constitution—without Bill of Rights   Fri Mar 15, 2013 3:50 pm

I feel this would be the appropriate forum to place this post: Let me know if you agree after you have read it. .




Quote :
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 Brennan had asked for a document from the National Archives that would demonstrate the U.S. is a nation of laws.

“Director Brennan told the president that he made the request to the archives because he wanted to reaffirm his commitment to the rule of law as he took the oath of office as director of the CIA,” Earnest said.

The Constitution itself went into effect in 1789. But troublemaking blogger Marcy Wheeler points out that what was missing from the Constitution in 1787 is also quite symbolic: The Bill of Rights, which did not officially go into effect until December 1791 after ratification by states. (Caution: Marcy’s post has some strong language.)

That means: No freedom of speech and of the press, no right to bear arms, no Fourth Amendment ban on “unreasonable searches and seizures,” and no right to a jury trial.

How … symbolic?

Of course, why take an oath on a document that is being shredded as we speak. It should be law for them to use a full version of the constitution including the bill of rights as well as the Declaration Of Independence. Hell, I have a book with all three and it cost me less than 15 dollars. This is just more proof that these people just do not care about the Constitution or what it truly stands for.
