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.

I wonder if he would say the Koran was just a book? Nah, didn´t think so.

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.

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!

WOW! John McCain is leading a vicious campaign against the Russian government since the November election. In January McCain suggested the Russian “hacking” of the election was an “act of war.” But it wasn’t that long ago that Senator McCain requested campaign donations from Russian officials.

The Trump administration Wednesday revoked federal guidelines issued by former President Barack Obama that allowed public school students to use restrooms and other facilities corresponding to their gender identity. A document submitted to the Supreme Court by the Solicitor General´s office said that the Obama-era directive issued this past May did not "undergo any formal public process" or explain how the directive was "consistent with the express language of Title IX," the federal law outlawing sex discrimination in education and activities.

With immigration courts reaching a record backlog in 2016, Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly ordered Monday that illegal immigrants who have been in the U.S. for less than two years should be allowed to be deported without a court hearing. Kelly signed two memos Monday that made significant changes to the nation’s immigration policy. They ordered the immediate construction of a border wall, expanded the amount of local police who will enforce immigration law, and put every illegal immigrant — excluding those protected under President Obama’s executive amnesty — at risk of deportation.

Congratulations Morning Consult, you misreported your own poll. This morning the outlet reported a new poll with the headline: "Audiences want ´Saturday Night Live´ to keep ribbing Trump." But their own numbers tell a different story. While President Trump can´t take a joke and often criticizes the comics, it turns out that he´s not a bad judge of humor. Morning Consult´s own numbers suggest that slightly more viewers want "SNL" to move on past Trump than want the show to keep the Trump joke going. Without funny business, here´s the real math. It´s true that 33 percent of respondents say they crack up

On Tuesday, John Kelly, President Trump’s secretary of Homeland Security, published a six-page, single-spaced memorandum detailing new guidance on immigration enforcement. Thereupon, I spent about 1,500 words summarizing the guidance in a column at National Review. Brevity being the soul of wit, both the memo and my description of it could have been reduced to a single, easy-to-remember sentence: Henceforth, the United States shall be governed by the laws of the United States.

Donald Trump’s education secretary opposed any change to President Barack Obama’s pro-transgender policy, according to a report in the New York Times, even though Obama’s rules would have exposed the nation’s single-sex institutions and civic groups to crippling lawsuits by gay advocacy groups. But Attorney General Jeff Sessions prevailed in the closed-door dispute, and with aid from Trump, persuaded Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to support a reform of the Obama’s pro-transgender policy. The reform, which may be unveiled tomorrow, will junk Obama’s May 2016 directive which effectively declares that children can change their sex by simply declaring they have the

Calls to boycott Wegmans Food Markets, a popular supermarket chain, because it sells Trump Winery products have backfired on the Prince William County, Virginia, chapter of the National Organization for Women. A spokeswoman for Wegmans, a New York-based company, told Fox News on Monday that Trump wines flew off its shelves last week. Out of 10 locations, only its Charlottesville store did not completely sell out. (Snip) Calls for boycotts began with a story involving Prince William County’s chapter of NOW in The Washington Post published Feb. 14. “Certainly if Wegmans is carrying Trump wines, I personally will not shop

A group of global investors with $11 trillion in managed assets told Texas on Tuesday not to enact legislation restricting access to bathrooms for transgender people, saying it is discriminatory and bad for business. The "Texas Privacy Act," or Senate Bill 6, has been marked as a priority for Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, a Republican and conservative Christian who guides the legislative agenda in the Republican-controlled state Senate. He said the measure protected the privacy and safety of Texans. The bill on a flashpoint issue in the United States is similar to a law enacted last year in North Carolina

A Mexican man has apparently taken his own life just half an hour after being deported from the United States. Guadalupe Olivas Valencia, 45, jumped from a bridge at the border after he was deported for the third time. He was found unconscious next to a plastic bag with his belongings and died in hospital a short while later. His death came as the Trump administration issued new guidelines to widen the net for deporting illegal immigrants from the US. (Snip) Mr Olivas was a native of Sinaloa, one of Mexico's most violent states and the stronghold of the cartel formerly led by jailed drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.

In San Francisco, an Indian software engineer on a work permit canceled plans to bid on a $900,000 home. In Washington, a Brazilian nonprofit executive passed on a fixer-upper near her office. And, in Mesa, Arizona, a 24-year-old son of undocumented Mexican immigrants won the trust of a bank -- a green light for a mortgage -- but now fears deportation. President Donald Trump’s immigration policies threaten to crack a foundation of the American economy: the residential real estate market. Legal and otherwise, immigrants, long a pillar of growth in homebuying, are no longer feeling the warm welcome and optimism

Astronomers have spotted a star system with planets that could support life just 39 light years away. Seven Earth-like planets have been discovered orbiting nearby dwarf star ´Trappist-1´, and all of them could have water at their surface, one of the key components of life. Three of the planets have such good conditions, that scientists say life may have already evolved on them. Researchers claim that they will know whether or not there is life on any of the planets within a decade, and said ´this is just the beginning.´ No other star system discovered before has been found to

The mainstream media have stepped up their complaints about President Trump amid pious howls mostly about the First Amendment. The issue, however, has nothing to do with that. It´s that these organizations are openly asserting a right to define, control and impose their world-view on us. That´s the real problem. To start, they are defining what is and isn´t offensive in America today, claiming they can make those designations even while admitting they don´t have all the facts, and that you, the reader, deserve to lose your job if you fall outside of the rigid box they construct. There are numerous

The Democratic National Committee will choose its next leader on Saturday, and when it does it should choose a leader who will resist the pressure to pursue the wrong white people. (Snip) That is the white flight that should most concern the next D.N.C. chairman, because those voters make up a more promising way to reclaim the White House. The way to win them back is by being more progressive, not less. To be clear, all white voters matter. But Democrats must make tough, data-driven decisions about how to prioritize their work. Right now, too many are using bad math and

A lesbian named Ash Fisher surprised herself by falling in love with a man! Even though she is in a relationship with him, however, she still maintains she is a lesbian. I have a femme tattoo on my arm, which was sticked-and-poked by a fellow queer on another queer´s couch during Pride. I run a queer feminist comedy show called "Man Haters." Much of my standup act revolves around my queerness. Basically, I´m super gay. Before meeting him, I identified not just as queer, but as a dyke.

Fox’s Tucker Carlson tonight faced off with Sunsara Taylor from the group Refuse Fascism, who argued that President Trump‘s administration is a “fascist regime.” Taylor said, “Humanity is facing an emergency…Trump and Pence are operating out of Hitler’s playbook, only they have nuclear weapons.” Carlson, who noted at the start she wouldn’t be on his show if Trump was truly fascist, said that if Taylor was serious about thinking Trump is Hitler, her activism would go well beyond simply speaking out. Taylor said there needs to be serious protest and resistance against Trump’s fascist administration, and she even took some
