Megyn Kelly Grills NY Times
Op-Ed Author Who Wrote That U.S.
Should ‘Give Up’ On Constitution

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/4/2013 3:44:00 PM

Appearing on Fox News’ America Live this afternoon, Georgetown professor Mike Seidman took a grilling from host Megyn Kelly over his recent New York Times op-ed which suggested the U.S. “give up” on the Constitution and its “archaic, idiosyncratic and downrght evil provisions.” Seidman began the interview praising Kelly for allowing him to come on the show, despite the fact that “a the lot of viewers don’t agree with what I have to say.” In turn, Kelly praised the “thought-provoking” and “interesting” nature of the controversial op-ed. The Georgetown professor then explained his basic thesis as such:

Comments:
She had far more patience with this guy than I ever would have had. He has no business teaching constitutional law if this is what he believes. He did surprise me with his statement concerning the Supreme Court.

Megyn is good at this sort of discussion and she realizes it´s better to engage him publicly than to just ignore him. She also is respectful, but very firm, even if she´d like to behave differently.

This man manifests an ignorance about the background, origin, and debates over the crafting of the United States Constitution that is appalling, and that would simply be unbelievable if we did not have the proof he himself provides right before our eyes. It is as though he is utterly unfamiliar with the actual thinking of the Founders and the basis for the document he disparages as the outdated beliefs of some dead people. That an individual of such limited knowledge and comprehension should be in a position of trust and authority is alarming beyond measure. One almost feels it to be an emergency requiring immediate action and notification of someone. Something is terribly, terribly wrong here. If I were in charge of Georgetown University, the first thing I would do is order a careful re-examination and re-verification of his academic credentials to be certain he is who he claims to be and has completed the training he says he has. What on earth is going on when a professor who specializes in the Constitution knows less about it than a graduate of a good high school?

The professor could maybe be well educated while not being a critical thinker. Such a person usually doesn´t understand that without the arcane Constitution he spurns is the only enduring moral compass that allows him to voice his attitude and ideas freely.
Without that laws to protect that standard of conduct he could be tossed in jail for life with out a trial if the ruling powers decreed.

"a lot of viewers don´t agree with what I have to say."

Way too modest there, Seidman. To be fair, a lot of viewers are deeply insulted and offended by what you have to say. In many other countries, investigators would look for you in the wake of such comments, but would only be able to locate a few parts. Try reading the Federalist Papers sometime, if you want to call yourself a Constitutional scholar.

Likewise, the next person who characterizes the Electoral College as oppressive (within arm´s reach of me) will get a quick smack upside the head for being totally ignorant about the Great Compromise.

Megyn gave him a platform so America could see just what a Georgetown professor is spewing about his country. It´s hard to listen to but I am glad she invited him. Good job, Megyn.

Foxie Knews is bearable if one turns the volume to zero.
The girls are great, but they have wacko pop ups with no warning like pro gun control billous o´really.
I quit watching it when nasty bobbette bechel and smarmy jaun willym&ms became it´s mainstay newsters.
If I wanted to watch that trash I would view the Jihad Nightly or the Dimfecal Marxist Review.

#2, this guy is not ignorant. His attitude towards the nations founding is based on his world view. He is a prototype liberal/progressive. Like many in Washington, He hates freedom and the basic ideals of Americas foundation. What is really scary is, this clown is polluting how many minds with this krap!

Seidman should re-evaluate his views on our Constitution. I don´t think he´d fare very well under sharia law. Think Daniel Pearl.

This man is not ignorant; he is introducing the next evolution of the one world order progressives, of whom Obama is a hood ornament.

While Obama is having great success in moving America toward the EU socialist welfare state, he and his handlers will eventually come up against immovable and immutable elements of the Constitution. The professor is preparing the ground for that eventuality, and the inevitable debate on whether the time has come to discard the constitution.

That´s what I was going to say, #8. I´m sure Seidman has a reasonably good mind that he has chosen to channel down a narrow avenue of leftist thinking. Anything outside that is warped or ignored by him. Contrary reaction to his view will not force him to weigh the alternatives, he´s locked in. He´s an avatar of elite leftism or, in other words, a very bad man.

I firmly believe our wonderful president and most in his administration have the exact same belief. My concern is we are about to see these ideals released on this nation. We will be feeling November for a very long time.

The class of people who live for ideas do not pay a penalty if their ideas do not work in the real world. Aren´t I clever? Original? Provocative? Bravely against the grain? Nimbly verbal? Widely quoted? Admired by other idea people? Vain tinsel. The founders were steel and will be revered long after the tinselmen are forgotten.

Ayn Rand felt the greatest danger to this country was for those protecting the Constitution to fail to understand the progressives did indeed ´believe´ what they espoused. Never, ever say - I can´t believe you mean that. They do.

When people complain about the Constitution I am always reminded of the movie "Scent of a Woman." Pacino´s character says he always knew the right path, but he never took it. Why? Because it was too damn hard.

These simpering whiners remind me of that. It´s too hard to convince a majority of the people to give up their liberty. So he wants that dysfunctional parliamentary system that has given Europe such a economic benefit (Italy,Spain, Greece,France), all on the backs of the taxpayers of a Constitutional Republic who has provided military cover for over 60 years.

I would suggest this parliamentary consensus builder move to Europe where he can indulge himself in his fantasy of government that "respects" rights, rather than a people who demand their rights. The former is wishful thinking; the latter is just too damned hard.

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City and the Village

   

 



 
Report: Obama Considering Bond
Hearings for Detained Illegal Immigrants
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 7:53:38 PM     Post Reply
Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

Eric Cantor: Obama and I totally

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

President Obama thinks Democrats should not shy away from defending Obamacare. “Democrats should forcefully defend and be proud of the fact that millions of people . . . we’re helping, because of something we did,” he said. The president held a press conference on Thursday to announce that 8 million people have enrolled in Obamacare. He also said that Republicans are going through “stages of grief” over Obamacare. “Anger, denial, and all that stuff — we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama said.

Reid: Bundy supporters
are ‘domestic terrorists’
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Timothy Cama    Original Article

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) intensified his criticism of armed militia members supporting rancher Cliven Bundy, calling them “domestic terrorists.” “They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Reid said Thursday at an event hosted by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, according to the newspaper. “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.” Reid specifically criticized Bundy supporters for bringing guns and their children to the ranch to defend him against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). BLM officials and contractors started rounding up Bundy’s cattle last week because of his refusal to pay $1 million in grazing

Fox News’s ‘Outnumbered’

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network. But one of the things that makes Fox such a strong channel, purely from a business perspective, is its ability to develop new talent and new concepts. And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

“We should be afraid of sharia law” in America, and Muslims here who want to practice sharia should go back to where they came from, “to those nations that recognize sharia law,” said Rev. Franklin Graham, head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. In a recent interview with the Charlotte Observer, Graham was asked, “Some say you demonize Islam, and Christians in this country have opposed building a mosque or are worried about Sharia law. Isn’t it –” Graham, who oversees the international Christian aid group Samaritan’s Purse, said, “We should be afraid of Sharia law. We should be absolutely

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it."

I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
