THE PLOT TO DESTROY THE CONSTITUTION How Team Obama undermines and perverts 'the supreme law of the land'
Thomas Jefferson warned us about the monster called government.
"In questions of power," he urged, "let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution."
Unfortunately, America's government has long thrown off those constitutional "chains," resulting in its cancerous growth, massive welfare state, ruinous public debt and freedom-destroying intrusions into every area of the lives of its citizens.
And that was before Obama.
Today, the practice of ignoring, distorting and perverting the Constitution has become a high art. It is, in fact, literally the modus operandi of Barack Obama's presidency, as stunningly documented in the September issue of Whistleblower, "THE PLOT TO DESTROY THE CONSTITUTION."
In a relentless campaign to "transform America" from history's most successful constitutional republic into just one more weak European-style entitlement society based on all-powerful central government and massive wealth "redistribution," Obama and his administration have shredded the Constitution in every conceivable manner.
Soon after his inauguration, an early tipoff Obama held the Constitution in low esteem was his choice of "czars." Science czar John Holdren, for instance, is on record saying that in the event of a national emergency, the Constitution would permit compulsory abortions!
And Obama's powerful regulatory czar Cass Sunstein advocates an entirely new bill of rights – even authoring a book, "The Second Bill of Rights: FDR's Unfinished Revolution and Why We Need It More than Ever," in which he advances a disturbingly communist-sounding new set of "rights" for America. These include the government-guaranteed "right" to a job; the "right" to earn enough to provide adequate food, clothing and recreation; the "right" to a decent home, to medical care and to a good education; and many more cradle-to-grave "rights" reminiscent of totalitarian, collectivist societies.
Employing his Alinsky-style, crisis-of-the-day tactics, Obama launched into endless, back-to-back attacks on the Constitution – from giving banks $700 billion of taxpayer money, to unconstitutionally requiring all Americans to buy health insurance; from sneaking in "Cap and Trade"-type regulations through the EPA, to instituting by executive order de facto amnesty for many illegal aliens; from imposing new regulations on gun dealers to going to war with Libya, both without the consent of Congress. "THE PLOT TO DESTROY THE CONSTITUTION" exposes these and many other ways Team Obama is operating entirely outside the United States Constitution.
What about Congress? Can't legislators stand up to a rogue president and insist he adhere to the "supreme law of the land"? Not likely, since not only do many congressmen and judges hold the Constitution in as low esteem as Obama does, but as Whistleblower documents, a recent poll shows elected officials know less about the Constitution than the general public! Fewer than half of elected "public servants" could correctly answer such basic questions as "Who can declare war?" and "What are the three branches of government?" And only 1 in 7 knew that the phrase "wall of separation" (between church and state) doesn't appear anywhere in the Constitution.
