OBAMA WILL VIOLATE THE CONSTITUTION IF HE APPOINTS HILLARY SECRETARY OF STATE

(H/T) OIL FOR IMMIGRATION

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Well, how’s this grab you? It seems MSNBC has suddenly found out that there is a document that we live under called the Constitution. Ah, gives me faith in humanity once again, because I was beginning to think we were living in a Banana Republic. With apologies to Banana Republics world wide, of course!

After all, the gang at MCNBC thinks Bush should leave office NOW so that our “Dear Leader” can ascend to the thrown post haste. (opps, I meant throne, it was the election that was thrown!) Never mind that pesky problem of Obama’s ineligibility due to his having been born a dual citizen.

Memo to those fine folks at MSNBC who think they can pick and choose those parts of the Constitution they like and toss out or disregard the parts they don’t like… read a little further in the Constitution to Article II Section 1. Your buddy, Obama, is in deep sneakers if the Supremes decide to hear the the Donofrio v Wells case. They are our last hope against the barbarians trying to tear our Republic apart!

You heard it for yourself in the video. Hillary has a problem being named to the post of Secretary of State because of that pesky old Constitution, you know, the document that is supposed to make us a people and a nation of laws . . . what a quaint concept!

According to Michael Stokes Paulson, a Law Professor who has written on the application of the Emoluments Clause in the past, he says this regarding the Clinton appointment:

[…] The Emoluments Clause of Article I, section 6 provides “No Senator or Representative shall, during the Time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil Office under the Authority of the United States, which shall have been created, or the Emoluments whereof shall have been encreased during such time.” As I understand it, President Bush’s executive order from earlier this year “increased” the “Emoluments” (salary) of the office of Secretary of State. Last I checked, Hillary Clinton was an elected Senator from New York at the time. Were she to be appointed to the civil Office of Secretary of State, she would be being appointed to an office for which “the Emoluments whereof shall have been increased” during the time for which she was elected to serve as Senator. The plain language of the Emoluments Clause would thus appear to bar her appointment … if the Constitution is taken seriously (which it more than occasionally isn’t on these matters, of course).

[…] Unless one views the Constitution’s rules as rules that may be dispensed with when inconvenient; or as not really stating rules at all (but “standards” or “principles” to be viewed at more-convenient levels of generality); or as not applicable where a lawsuit might not be brought; or as not applicable to Democratic administrations, then the plain linguistic meaning of this chunk of constitutional text forbids the appointment of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State.

Listen to entire video, particularly towards the end when Pete Willams says Obama will disregard the Constitution.

Well, why shouldn’t he disregard this part of the Constitution, as well. After all, isn’t BHO paying attorneys $1,000 an hour (at 3 law firms) to withhold corroborating documents which prove his eligibility to hold the office of POTUS. This obfuscation is because Obama reveres the Constitution, right? Right? (For the dullards out there, that last statement was dripping in sarcasm!)

SO I say, why have a Constitution when our law makers think the laws/rules don’t apply to them? BTW, if you missed it, in a recent national survey of our country’s lawmakers, the majority demonstrated that they are as ignorant about civics and how our government works as the Obama voters. When recently tested, only 44% could pass a government civics test! 44%! And I thought Senator Claire McCaskill was only corrupt . . . guess she’s dumb and stupid, as well.

BTW, don’t anyone write and tell me to be nice. This is my blog and I can rant if I want to. Hey, isn’t that a song?

    Wow, we think and talk alike? Scary, isn’t it?

    I agree. No Banana Republic in the U.S.! Let’s follow the Constitution!

    TAKE ACTION and DEFEND OUR CONSTITUTION! Stop The Fraud by Obama!

    The Donofrio v Wells Case Regarding Obama Birth Certificate Question Will Be Discussed In Conference By The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday, Dec. 5. If 4 of 9 Justices want a full hearing, then oral arguments may be heard. Read: “The Great Birth Certificate Scandal-Cover-Up of the 2008 Election” by Joan Swirsky

    If Obama gets into office without verification that he has met the requirements of the U.S. Constitution, if you care about life, liberty or the family, you’re going to have to make hundreds of calls to try and fight an agenda that seeks to silence you.
    There is a way to help prevent this. Our founders sacrificed their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. I’m asking you to do three things.

    Fast and pray for all the hidden things to come to light.

    Call the Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee – in their district offices while they’re home this week for Thanksgiving. Ask them to “Please hold congressional hearings to investigate whether Barack Obama meets the basic constitutional requirements for the highest office of the land.” Link For Contact Info: http://www.f2a.org/NewsStory.cfm?Story_ID=2545

    Write a letter to the nine Justices of the United States Supreme Court and put them in a FedEx (or other overnight) envelope to: U.S. Supreme Court

    I love Sarah, I like Hillary, I a(bh)or Barry! He is a global citizen, a local alien…hehe..
    …peace to all…

    Rant away, someone has to tell the truth. As Senator, wouldn’t Obama emoluments –salary be increased significantly as Prez? Same $h*t, different race, gender, day. So goes the Constitution when it is convenient, eh?

  6. not so fast

    @ahrcanum……not so fast. No, this clause would not apply to Obama’s case. He has not been appointed to be president. He was elected. The emoluments clause covers only appointments, not elections.

    This issue has come up numerous times in the past, some very recently. The way it’s typically dealt with is the appointee takes the position at the old salary. Problem solved.
