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

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."

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.

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.

Barack said, in 2008, that the U.S. constitution is ´just a colonial document.´
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.

Had he spoken using the same terms, but with respect to the power of the words on the document, then he could at least claim a modicum of respect for it. But, no, not The Won, Obiwon, Obummer the Terrible. He had to diminish the value of the document itself while instilling his humanist, communist, community organizer take on the entire thing.

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!

Vice President Joe Biden delivered an epic final speech Wednesday to the elites at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The gist of his speech was simple: At a time of "uncertainty" we must double down on the values that made Western democracies great, and not allow the "liberal world order" to be torn apart by destructive forces. Biden went after Russian President Vladimir Putin by name, saying he is using "every tool" in his power to whittle away the European project, and undermine Western democracies.

On MSNBC tonight, a former U.S. Army major general classified Chelsea Manning‘s actions as “treason” and Glenn Greenwald was quick to fire back. Former Maj. Gen. Robert Scales told Greta Van Susteren, “I’m speaking as a soldier, and the bottom line is this is treason, pure and simple. She gave away to WikiLeaks 400,000 operational… documents that put soldiers in the field at risk.” He said it’s “not justice for the people in uniform” for Manning to end up having her sentence commuted, as President Obama decided today. Scales believes that seven years is not sufficient punishment for an act

White House Press Secretary John Earnest’s last press conference on behalf of the Obama administration took place amidst new tensions with Russia. One reporter unsurprisingly wanted to know the White House’s response to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s accusing Obama of trying to undermine President-elect Donald Trump with the controversial dossier published last week. “Of course it’s not true,” Earnest said, adding that it sounded like Putin “got his copy of the talking points.” From who exactly, the press corps wondered? Putin’s words “sound a lot like” those coming from the incoming administration, Earnest surmised. The Russian leader´s rhetoric, he explained, is awfully similar to

President Obama oversaw the deepest legislative malaise in modern political history, according to the Washington Times Legislative Index, which captures his struggles to find ways to work with a Congress that ranged from lukewarm to openly hostile toward him. Over the course of his eight years, he has signed just 1,227 bills into law — less, even, than one-term Presidents Carter and George H.W. Bush. Digging deeper into the numbers, Congress spent less time in session, handled less business on the chamber floors and generally sputtered for much of Mr. Obama’s tenure, according to The Times’ index. Blame for the

Manning, who was formerly known as “Bradley,” was sentenced to 35 years in prison in 2013 on espionage charges for stealing nearly one million classified

President-elect Donald Trump will be the least popular man to take the oath of office in four decades – and he enters the White House with a popularity rating just half of what Barack Obama´s was eight years ago. Trump scored an approval rating of just 40 percent in a new CNN / ORC poll. His approval rating was identical in an ABC News / Washington Post poll. Trump doesn´t appear to won over converts through his handling of the transition period.

President Barack Obama announced his plan to free Chelsea Manning (who changed his name from Bradley) after leaking classified military documents to Wikileaks and being sentenced to 35 years in prison for his crimes. Once in prison, Manning went on a hunger strike to demand sex change surgery in prison, which was granted by officials at the cost of American taxpayers. Obama included Manning on a list of prisoner commutations announced late Tuesday afternoon, allowing him to be set free on May 17, 2017.
