On the one hand, anti-American Americans love to tweak patriotic U.S. citizens for their “parochial” leanings. At the same time, they are convinced “bitter clingers” are as dumb as oxen. And while many (leftists and rightists) are not up to snuff on the ins and outs of historical documents, others are.
Equally tangential, it is impossible to believe – on any planet – that the swearing in of John Brennan on the draft Constitution, BEFORE the Bill of Rights was enshrined, was not meant as another forward march towards tyranny – adinakutnicki.com/2013/02/15/u-s-leaders-forward-march-towards-tyranny-conditioning-its-citizens-in-the-process-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/. Appallingly, the sheep in wolves clothing blathered otherwise. They would have us dummies believe, oh yeah, unicorns are alive, pigs do fly, Santa Claus is real and this blogger is a leftist! All of the above are fairy tales.
But never mind. This is the authentic John Brennan, in all his treachery – adinakutnicki.com/2013/02/11/john-brennan-obamas-cia-pick-is-a-muslim-convert-brotherhood-mafias-infiltration-near-complete-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/…as he takes his oath to protect America, at the same time that he is a Muslim convert! What gall.
In conjunction, the intersection between Brennan and the Islamist-in-Chief dovetails with a “mysterious” death – adinakutnicki.com/2013/01/13/the-intersection-between-john-brennan-nominated-as-cia-director-a-mysterious-death-during-obamas-first-term-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/…an actual body of lies.
Yet, the above revelations aren’t shocking, when one internalizes that Washington’s counter-terror officials have been compromised for years, but much more so under the reign of Obama – adinakutnicki.com/2012/11/22/what-happens-when-washington-counter-terror-officials-past-present-align-with-muslim-brotherhood-mafia-fronts-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/ .
Back to the (dastardly) swearing in….
‘Brennan takes oath on draft Constitution—without Bill of Rights’
Vice President Joe Biden swears in CIA Director John Brennan at the White House, March 8, 2013. (David Lienemann/Official …
Oh, dear. This is probably not the symbolism the White House wanted.
Hours after CIA Director John Brennan took the oath of office—behind closed doors, far away from the press, perhaps befitting his status as America’s top spy—the White House took pains to emphasize the symbolism of the ceremony.
“There’s one piece of this that I wanted to note for you,” spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at their daily briefing. “Director Brennan was sworn in with his hand on an original draft of the Constitution that had George Washington’s personal handwriting and annotations on it, dating from 1787.”
Earnest said Brennan had asked for a document from the National Archives that would demonstrate the U.S. is a nation of laws.
“Director Brennan told the president that he made the request to the archives because he wanted to reaffirm his commitment to the rule of law as he took the oath of office as director of the CIA,” Earnest said.
The Constitution itself went into effect in 1789. But troublemaking blogger Marcy Wheeler points out that what was missing from the Constitution in 1787 is also quite symbolic: The Bill of Rights, which did not officially go into effect until December 1791 after ratification by states. (Caution: Marcy’s post has some strong language.)( Adina Kutnicki includes Marcy’s gem for her readers, otherwise found at her link above -“I really don’t mean to be an asshole about this. But these vows always carry a great deal of symbolism. And whether he meant to invoke this symbolism or not, the moment at which Brennan took over the CIA happened to exclude (in symbolic form, though presumably not legally) the key limits on governmental power that protect American citizens.”….you, go girl…)
That means: No freedom of speech and of the press, no right to bear arms, no Fourth Amendment ban on “unreasonable searches and seizures,” and no right to a jury trial.
How … symbolic?
IF anyone believes that Brennan’s “symbolic” gesture was meaningless, then these same Americans would do well to prepare themselves for totalitarian rule. For once the leaders realize that the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, is really viewed by most as relics of the past, rest assured, they will be trampling upon a heck of a lot more than historical documents.
