Justice Kennedy says Constitution
‘flawed document’

San Francisco Chronicle, by Bob Egelko

Original Article

Posted By:Sardonic, 7/22/2014 9:22:48 AM

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy wasn’t out to make news when he addressed the annual conference of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and devoted most of his 50-minute speech to the Magna Carta, which turns 800 years old in 2015. But Kennedy did let on that he doesn’t belong to the school of Constitution-worshipers who base their legal doctrines on what they glean to be the original, literal meaning of every word and phrase in the nation’s founding document.

And who appointed Bob Egelko or Anthony Kennedy to pick out the "flawed" parts? If they don´t like it then there is a legal way to change it.

In context of (too short) article, it appears Justice Kennedy meant Constitution flawed in sense of slavery and the 3/5 rule for blacks which, frankly, it was. Will not judge based on snippets. Would like to find full text before judging (I suppose pun was intended).

The biggest flaw is it did not place restraints on the power of judges, allowing them to arrogate all power to themselves. Judges control our industries, our schools, and our military. They regularly overrule the will of the people as expressed in elections. They are free to ignore or rewrite all laws, even the Constitution. The higher they are in the system the more prejudiced they are, so their rulings can be precisely predicted.

Despotism in abaya robes.

the document was written by men and so must be flawed. This is especially true as it had to be ADOPTED and there were compromises made.

Yet the founders put in an amendment process - article V - so that it could be updated when necessary.

Article VI: The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.
The Oath:

I, _________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as _________ under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God.


If one believes the Constitution is flawed, don´t take the oath and get another job. Or better still move somewhere else to establish your utopia. Most of the people who ever lived on earth would not think the Constitution so flawed, even with slavery.

#4. the Democrats of the time fought tooth and nail against the 3/5´s compromise.
See, if each slave was counted as a full person, the slave owning Democrat South would have been able to ENSURE the continuation of slavery by owning the Convention numerically.
Man, were they pi$$ed, and have been working to regain Slavery ever since.
The KKK, Jim Crow and Bull Connor were ALL Democrat constructs, or in the case of BC actual Democrat politicians.

#4 & 5 FYI. The 3/5 rule was a compromise. The northern colonies that opposed slavery didn´t want to count the slaves at all giving the South less representation in Congress believing it would make it easier to outlaw slavery altogether. The Southern states wanted to count all the slaves as whole and part of their population thus having more seats in the House. Any man made document written is flawed.

Do you realize that these corrupt will be standing before God at the Great White Throne Judgment Seat and required to give an answer for what they have done. They have blood on their hands. There is a greater judgment for those in authority, as you know, unless they get saved. But even when we get saved, the Saints of God must appear before the Judgment Seat of Christ. There is no punishment there since Jesus took it all, but there is shame and rewards given out. And we will be required to give an answer(not an excuse)to what we did AFTER being saved. To whom more is given.....more is required.

The Constitution is the Constitution and that is that. It is to be taken for its words and not current or future intrepretations. If there is something wrong, then make an amendment. Courts cannot overrule the Constitution, period!!

Of all the constructs of Man and his civilization, even (actually especially) the Koran, this document comes closest to perfection. Of course its authors were well aware of its limitations and flaws. But the way it has withstood the tests of time and the assaults of scoundrels, one has to come to the conclusion that these men were under Divine guidance.

The north ws againt slavery, the south was for it. In order to have a country there had to be a comprmise . So the nothern representitives did that and knew that it would be dealt with later, which it was. The primary objective was to have a country, without that, everything else ws meaningless.

Of course it is flawed. It was written by men who are flawed and not omniscient.

Fortunately, those men also included an amendment process. Glaring faults can be remedied. However, Supreme Court justices are NOT part of that amendment process. They are handed a hierarchy of laws. It is their job to verify the laws are applied equally to all, to decide conflicts between various laws, and to provide clarification for ambiguous laws.

They have some wiggle room in interpreting laws but well written laws don´t allow too much interpretation.

It´s axiomatic that the Constitution is flawed. It was so flawed that a Civil War was fought over its flaws and limitations. It continues to be flawed as it now some how miraculously allows the gooobernment to determine what amount of water can be used to flush toliets, How fast one can drive on highways and that the goobernment can now tax inactivity. One would bet that amendments that address out of control dictators like Obambi would be a welcome addition to the flawed constitution that now allows for Obambi to function as a 3rd world tinhorn dictator.

Misleading headline. He was talking about the original document´s approval of slavery. He goes on to say he supports the Second Amendment. There are provision in the Constitution for amendments. That is the way to change "flaws" in the document instead of judicial fiat, which is what liberal prefer.

Justice Kennedy is pretty flawed himself. He was a member of the Olympic Club from 1962 until the day he went to Washington for his confirmation hearings. The Olympic Club had a "whites only" policy when he joined it. Also he was a member of the Del Paso Country Club and the Sutter Club which were also clubs that allowed few minorities and few women (certainly less that 3/5ths of these clubs were black or women members!)

You can read all of this in his confirmation hearing record. In that record you will not read any mention of Justice Kennedy´s concern that the Constitution was a flawed document. A bit of bait and switch, huh?

Also, in the Kennedy confirmation hearing transcript you can learn that prior to becoming a Supreme, Kennedy hired 35 law clerks. Of these 0 were black (0%), 5 were women(14%), 1 was Asian-american (3%). So 83% were white males.

Now it turns out that Kennedy thinks the framers produced a flawed Constitution. Seems to me had Justice Kennedy been involved he would have made the same flawed mistakes.

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control.

At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up.

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t.
