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.

No, Bam, it´s not just parchment, it´s set of principles. You don´t define it´s meaning, it defines your powers.

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.

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.

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!

The search for motives in 26-year-old Esteban Santiago’s shooting spree at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport continues, but the authorities say they cannot find any ties to the Islamic State (ISIS) or other international terrorist organizations. Miami Herald reports that, despite rumors to the contrary, nothing in Santiago’s social media history indicates he was “an Islamic convert inspired by terrorist organizations.” According to the Herald’s law enforcement source, the airport shooting was clearly a planned attack, but Santiago appears to have planned it on his own, for reasons known currently only to himself. By now it is well-known that Santiago approached the

The White House slammed President-elect Donald Trump Wednesday for comparing U.S. intelligence agencies to Nazi Germany, saying the comparison was “deeply misguided.” “As President Obama has said many times, the men and women of our intelligence community are patriots,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. He said it was misguided of anyone “at any level” to question the motives of U.S. intelligence operatives. Mr. Trump questioned whether intelligence officials were responsible for the leak of an unverified document with damaging allegations about his activities in Russia, invoking Nazi Germany. “I think it was disgraceful that the intelligence agencies allowed any information that turned

One of Hillary Clinton’s chief aides has surfaced to claim the media ‘sat on’ an error-filled and unverifiable dossier of allegations of Russia having a blackmail tape of Donald Trump.

Brian Fallon is the closest person to Clinton to weigh in on the purported Russian dossier – although it is unknown if she approved his tweet. (Snip) ´Today has brought a gush of reporting that outlets knew about and sat on prior to November 8,´ Fallon wrote on Twitter. He added, in a second tweet:

Barbra Streisand is standing with Meryl Streep, who used her acceptance speech at Sunday´s Golden Globe Awards to criticize Donald Trump for lacking empathy and infamously mocking a disabled reporter in 2015.

Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself. The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow. They were drawn up by a former western counter-intelligence official, now working as a private consultant. BuzzFeed on Tuesday published the documents, which it said were “unverified and potentially unverifiable”.

Hillary Clinton’s political career is probably over, but just because she lost the presidential election to Donald Trump doesn’t mean she wasn’t prepared to win. Axios reporter Mike Allen has revealed Hillary’s list of prospective nominees for important cabinet posts in her administration, and it includes a number of interesting choices. John Podesta, her campaign chairman who accidentally exposed his entire email account to Russian hackers, was listed as the frontrunner to be Hillary Clinton’s secretary of state.

So the website BuzzFeed decided to publish a series of memos that have been floating around for months alleging all kinds of terrible things about Donald Trump. Some of those terrible allegations have to do with efforts to influence the American elections and Trump. Some of them have to do with Trump’s personal sexual conduct. Readers of this newspaper know well not to include me among Trump’s supporters. But the scurrilousness of what BuzzFeed has done here is so beyond the bounds of what is even remotely acceptable it should compel even those most outraged by Trump’s political excesses to come to

The saga over alleged Russian interference in the U.S. elections took another sinister turn Tuesday, as it was revealed that U.S. intelligence officials provided President-elect Donald Trump with a charge that the Russians had obtained dirt on him. U.S. officials included a two-page synopsis of ´kompromat´ – Russian for compromising material – as part of their security briefing of Trump on Friday. The material was based on memos compiled by a British intelligence operative who was considered ´credible´ by the U.S. intelligence community, CNN reported. What is believed to be the document itself was published by Buzzfeed, which pointed out
