President Obama Says U.S. Constitution
‘Just a Piece of Parchment’

Media Research Center, by Monica Sanchez

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/11/2017 10:04:23 AM

President Obama, as he concluded his farewell address in Chicago on Tuesday, called the U.S. Constitution “just a piece of parchment." “Our Constitution is a remarkable, beautiful gift,” said Obama. “But it’s really just a piece of parchment.” “It has no power on its own,” he went on. “We the people give it power. We the people give it meaning with our participation and with the choices that we make and the alliances that we forge…” He later said that as he steps down from the presidency, he plans to play an active role in "the most important office in a democracy: citizen."

Comments:
I will be so glad when that shameful traitor is out of office. Sadly he will never go away and leave us alone. All he did was lie and make divisive statements. In other words, it was the usual Obama blather.

This guy went to law school? He´s pretty stupid.

BO, you can participate, make choices, and forge alliances all you want, due to the rights on that "piece of parchment", but if you break the law that it lays down or others that flow from it, you and your allies will end up in court.

What a fool; an emperor wanna be.

He is correct. The arrangement of ink spots on paper, pixels on a screen, or sound waves in the air have no power. Th reader or the listener decide what to do with them, which actions to take or not take, and which emotions we choose to accompany the actions. As a nation we have decided that the meaning of the Constitution is whatever Anthony Kennedy says it means on any given day. Or Sonia Sotomayor. Words have no meaning. Power has meaning.

There are not enough words I learned in the oil field to describe my feeling for BHO and his total and utter disdain for this country and its people.

The more and more I listen to Obama, Soro´s, Clinton and their communist/socialist/progressive ilk the more and more right I move.

It´s time to start kicking illegals out of this country. By allowing them in Obama is at destroying the US from inside.

If you can get past this cretin´s obvious loathing for American sovereignty, have a laugh at his rhetoric.

The ´oratory´ that´s always praised is filled with cliches and obvious metaphors. It´s like being subjected to one high school valedictorian address after another - stilted, predictable, preachy, smug.

And Obama´s actions over the last eight years are representative and proof of his feeling that the Constitution is just a piece of parchment. He is apparently too stupid to realize that the Constitution is a basic foundation that has made this country the great nation it was before he was elected president.

I want to avoid the “gotcha” game the left plays. Under other circumstances coming from another person I could see myself agreeing with him. The physical piece of parchment only has meaning to the extent that we the people give it meaning and power by adhering to the covenant, the principles and values it embodies. Clearly Obama has not.

By vowing to “fundamentally transform” the nation he openly declared his intent to violate the constitution. We are a nation of laws not men only by virtue of our willingness to be loyal to the law. Yet those words and others tying him to communist values, the school of Saul Alinsky didn’t dissuade over half of our country to elect him twice no less. The people delivered the constitution to the shredder not Obama. If we continue down this path we could be a different country every four years. One of those manifestations will refuse to let go and surrender power.
The idiots who now speak of disappointment in the fulfillment of hope had no better reason for hope to begin with other than the word “hope” printed on a poster reminiscent of Che Guevara.

Last night´s comment should not have surporised anyone.
The U.S. constitution is a singularity, brilliant in its composition, brilliant in action. Barack trats it much like his close friend Bill Ayers treats the American flag.

I read the whole passage, and although I would never have put it this way, I think this statement is being taken out of context.

Though taken in context of his meaning, it still damns him, his administration, the other two branches: if the people we elect don´t enforce it--which they haven´t!!!--then the Constitution does become little more than a piece of parchment.

By itself the Constitution ensures nothing, protects nothing. This is why we need each branch to do their gosh-darn job!

Football coach Todd Peterman won a state championship for DeSoto High School in 2016, the school´s first. For a Texas high school, a state championship tends to ensure a coach will keep his job for a while. However, Peterman is facing a job hunt on the horizon. Apparently because he´s white: DeSoto went 16-0 last season and won the Class 6A Division II state title. Former NFL linebacker Zach Orr, a DeSoto and North Texas alumnus, indicated people were originally skeptical of Peterman´s hire because of his race. He said that seems to be the reason behind the potential change. "They act like they can´t

Texas Senator Ted Cruz has put forth a clever new plan for funding President Donald Trump’s expensive wall stretching across America’s southern border with Mexico. Aptly named "Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order," Cruz’s bill would take seized assets from billionaire drug lords, like the notorious Mexican kingpin El Chapo, and use them to fund the wall project. Currently, "U.S. prosecutors are seeking $14 billion in drug profits and other assets from El Chapo," according to Axios. "They also routinely seize the assets of other drug dealers and traffickers."

U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. The Republican president’s administration and two California governments that sued over the order disagreed about its scope.

The students at the Claremont, California academic institution wrote a letter to the school’s administrators demanding that an offer of employment extended to Goffman be rescinded on the basis of the professor’s race. The students argue that hiring Goffman is a repudiation of the college’s commitment to promote diversity and advance women of color.

Trump Ends Obama’s
African Ebola Amnesty

In a refreshing move, the Trump administration is eliminating one of Barack Obama’s many outrageous amnesty initiatives, this one involving illegal immigrants from African countries affected by the Ebola virus a few years ago. The Ebola amnesty scandal got buried in the hoopla of the administration’s broad executive order protecting millions of illegal alien Mexicans and Central Americans, but it was just as alarming. Launched in 2014, the Ebola reprieve was issued separately—and quietly—via a Temporary Protected Status (TPS), a humanitarian program that’s supposed to be short-term. Under the plan, the administration designated Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone for TPS

Former president Obama will speak to a health care conference sponsored by Cantor Fitzgerald in September, Gasparino reports. (Tweet/Video) The huge fee puts Obama at the top of the list of speaking fees for former government officials. Former Fed chair Ben Bernanke charges between $200,000 and $400,000, former Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner charges $200,000, and former President George Bush charges around $150,000, according to a person familiar with the matter. Hillary Clinton received over $200,000

Monday on MSNBC former Obama White House press secretary Josh Earnest said former President Barack Obama would come back to the political debate if President Donald Trump crosses “red lines” such as using information from deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA) applications to deport so-called DREAMers. (Snip) “I think what would motivate President Obama to re-engage in the political debate is if we saw the federal government start to cross some clear red lines in terms of long observed norms and values that frankly I think we have started to take for granted. One example that President Obama has himself

It was a message repeated several times at a Democrat news conference Tuesday afternoon: Republicans, agree with us on a spending bill, or we’ll blame you for shutting down the government. And it appears that Republicans, who control all three branches of government, are listening: “Now last night, we received a bit of good news -- not just for Democrats but for the country – that the president is easing off his demands for a border wall in the government funding bill,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told the news conference. “The money is better used elsewhere,” Schumer said. “If the

Sean Hannity is the latest Fox News personality facing allegations of sexual harassment. During a Friday interview with Tulsa, Oklahoma-based radio host Pat Campbell, former Fox News contributor Debbie Schlussel accused Hannity of inviting her to his hotel room before and after a debate with a pro-Palestinian guest in Detroit. Schlussel said she rejected Hannity’s alleged advances and that she was never invited on his show again. Schlussel and Hannity were scheduled to speak together at the Detroit show, Schlussel said. But before the show, Hannity allegedly invited her to an event at a nearby bookstore. “He had some event at a bookstore

The entire U.S. Senate has been invited to the White House for a briefing Wednesday on the North Korea situation, amid escalating tensions over the country’s missile tests and bellicose rhetoric.

Joseph Dunford and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats plan to provide the update to lawmakers.

Former President Barack Obama on Monday partly blamed the nation´s splintered politics on a media structure that lets people only listen to or read media outlets they agree with, which prevents them from hearing the other side. "Because of changes in the media, we now have a situation in which everybody is listening to people who already agree with them, and are further and further reinforcing their own realities to the neglect of the common reality that allows us to have a healthy debate, and then try to find common ground and actually move solutions forward," Obama said in his

Ex-President Barack Obama is the mystery man of American politics. Given the absence of a viable paper trail, nobody can say for sure who he is. He manifests for us as a figure of multiple identities: a Christian, a Muslim, a secularist, a socialist, a humanist, an intellectual, a man of the people. His lack of definable substance, his inner absence, has been an important political advantage. As Obama himself confessed (or boasted) in The Audacity of Hope, this layering of anonymities enabled him to “serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.—I’m loving all these Ancestry.com commercials where dim-witted actors say, “I thought I was a Tahitian Eskimo Mexican until I sent in my DNA test kit, and boy was I flummoxed when the results came back! I’m really Croatian with a mix of sub-Saharan! I guess I’ll be turning in my furry hat!” This is a scam I’m thoroughly in favor of, because it reveals, once and for all, the dirty secret of American politics: Race doesn’t exist! Don’t get me wrong. I don’t believe for a second that these tests mean anything. If you believe that DNA patterns

Liberal activist and Hollywood director Rob Reiner slammed President Donald Trump on Monday and suggested that Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election was the "greatest attack" on American democracy since Japan´s attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. "We´ve had the greatest attack of this democracy since 1941, and we have to understand that," Reiner said on MSNBC. Reiner also suggested that American society might collapse given the pressure Russia placed on democratic institutions in the country. Japan drew the United States into World War II after attacking its naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on December 7, 1941, killing

A group of executives who want to fight global warming has published a new report calling for countries to spend up to $600 billion a year over the next two decades to boost green energy deployment and energy efficiency equipment. [SNIP] To meet that goal ETC claims the world needs “investment in renewables and other low-carbon technologies some $6 trillion higher ($300 billion per year); while the largest required increases – of almost $9 trillion ($450 billion per year) – will be in more efficient energy saving equipment and buildings.” That’s a $15 trillion price tag to theoretically limit future
