Happy Birthday Constitution!!! 400 years?
Yes, today is the two-hundred-twenty-seventh anniversary of the debut of the Constitution! Can we keep her? Only if we follow her. Otherwise, what is the point?
Let’s see what the Constitution has to say about treason…..Article.III. Section 3.
Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.
Hmmm, three of the five Guantanamo detainees released for Bergdahl have gone to work for I.S.I.S.! I’m shocked! Shocked, I tell you!
It is being reported that at least 3 of the 5 detainees involved in the swap have joined ISIS in Syria and Iraq as commanders and are using that rank to usher in an “Islamic Caliphate” (a Sunni Islamic Theocracy – contrary to Obama’s claims that ISIS is not Islamic).
The “Taliban 5” who were transferred from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to custody in Doha, Qatar, are Mohammad Fazl, Khairullah Khairkhwa, Abdul Haq Wasiq, Norullah Noori, and Mohammad Nabi Omari. They have largely disappeared from view since they were dropped off in Doha, but eyewitnesses place Fazi, Wasiq, and Noori in Iraq and Syria fighting with ISIS.
Meh. That pesky Constitution “thingie” is taking another “hit” in California with an overt attack on the First Amendment.
Take the recent decision by California State University Chancellor Timothy P. White to strip the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship (IVCF) of its right to be a recognized organization on CSU’s 23 campuses because it refused to surrender its beliefs.(2)
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
So, as if our poor Constitution hasn’t been “hit” hard enough lately, Sheila Jackson Lee is aging it before our very eyes claiming it is 400 years old! She’s only off by 173 years…..Poor Constitution.
