Time’s Orwellian Story on U.S. Constitution Refuted!
Ken Blackwell and Ken Klukowski
July 4, 2011
Time magazine’s cover story shows the U.S. Constitution and asks, “Does it still matter?” Reading this story, we kept waiting for Emmanuel Goldstein to show up for the Two Minutes of Hate. It was difficult to discern whether we were reading Time, or Orwells’1984.
It portrays the Constitution as an outmoded document that we should ignore to whatever extent is expedient to pursue someone’s vision of a better society: “We cannot let the Constitution become an obstacle to a future with a sensible health care system, a globalized economy, and evolving sense of civil and political rights.”
The story shows all sorts of poll questions that present a false choice, such as, “The 14th Amendment says that any person born in the U.S. automatically becomes a U.S. citizen… Should [it] be revised?” The Citizenship Clause says no such thing, because it adds that anyone “not subject to the jurisdiction” of the U.S. is not a citizen.
That’s why children of foreign ambassadors, prisoner soldiers and heads of state born here do not become citizens. The question is how broad that “jurisdiction” clause is. Could Congress exclude illegal aliens? It’s an active debate in legal circles, with no clear answer.

Relentless Drive by Globalists to Kill the Constitution
July 5, 2011
In America, the main obstacle to complete domination by the bankster elite is the Constitution. Over the last few years, they have used their corporate media to attack constitutionalists and portray them as violent lunatics who threaten the security of the United States.
It is no secret that the establishment Republican party hates and fears Ron Paul. They have pulled out all stops to make sure he never gets anywhere near the Oval Office. Paul is continually attacked in the corporate media as a political throwback and isolationist who makes excuses for terrorists and drug addicts.
The Republicans were so threatened by the emergence of a libertarian Tea Party – founded on bedrock constitutional principles – they sent their operatives to compromise and takeover the movement. Now the corporate media tells us the warmonger and reality television star Sarah Palin is the leader of the Tea Party.
So-called conservative Republicans are deemed born-again Tea Party members, including Minnesota Republican Michele Bachmann who so loves the state she felt compelled to kiss master war criminal George W. Bush after he delivered his State of the Union teleprompter address in 2008.
Prior to winning a senatorial race in Kentucky, Rand Paul was portrayed by the corporate media as a racist troglodyte after making politically incorrect comments about the unconstitutional 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Following a drive-by attack on Paul by MSNBC teleprompter reader Rachel Maddow during the run-up to the election, the corporate media fell in line and denounced Paul as a racist. When this didn’t work, they simply dismissed him as a wide-eyed, naive utopian libertarian. None of this viciousness worked, however, and voters in Kentucky sent Paul to the Senate.
The elite controlling our burgeoning federal government portray constitutionalists as bomb-throwing terrorists and racist militias determined to assassinate Obama.
After a Department of Homeland Security document slandering constitutionalists and other activists as potential terrorists was revealed on the Alex Jones Show and elsewhere in the alternative media, the establishment media tried to make the document appear to be the work of over zealous and partisan Democrats in Obama’s DHS. Scarcely mentioned is the fact the document was initiated during Bush’s tenure.
Prior to Time Magazine’s assertion that the Constitution is an antiquated and irrelevant document, globalist operative Fareed Zakaria went on the Charlie Rose Show – a venue for all manner of elitist minions and one-worlders – and argued that our founding principles are “parochial” and do not marry up with the globalist plan that has converted China, India, and Asia into totalitarian dystopias and is determined to do the same in America. In a CNN piece last month, he suggested “a set of amendments to modernize the Constitution for the 21st Century.”
Before and since Zakaria’s demand we junk the Constitution and ask ill-informed citizens to make suggestions via Facebook and Twitter, establishment politicians floated the idea of another constitutional convention to bring the document into the 21st century.
“Consider the untold damage the enemies of liberty have visited on our Constitution despite its formidable institutional safeguards against such assaults. Imagine what mischief they would concoct if they were allowed to directly reframe the entire system,” writes columnist David Limbaugh, the younger brother of Rush Limbaugh. “The Constitution, as written, is nothing if not a document designed to maximize liberty and prevent tyranny by limiting the unrestrained powers of government.”
Limbaugh frames his defense of the Constitution firmly within the context of the left-vs-right paradigm. However, when it comes to dismantling the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the banksters and their bought and paid for operatives in Congress and the White House are ambidextrous. Bush was as much an enemy of the Constitution – which he deemed little more than a “goddamn piece of paper” – as Obama currently is. Republicans like Limbaugh rarely mention this.
“The globalists who currently control Washington, D.C., and Wall Street are, no doubt, salivating over the opportunity to officially dismantle America’s independence and national sovereignty, and establish a globalist North American Union – in much the same way that globalists created the European Union,” said Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin in 2009. A new Constitutional Convention is exactly the tool they need to cement their sinister scheme into law.”
It reminds to be seen if the establishment will succeed in its effort to completely trash the Constitution. Time Magazine’s latest attack on liberty and the sovereignty of the American people portends more assaults by the corporate media as it relentlessly attempts to popularize tyranny and the destruction of property rights, the freedom of expression free of political persecution, the right to bear arms against a leviathan centralized federal government, and the rest of the Bill of Rights.

I was shocked over the weekend to witness a full-scale talking point in the media demonizing our Founders and the precious Constitution. Please comment below with examples you’ve witnessed over the weekend so we can compile a more detailed report later in the week.
Please get this report out to everyone you know. It is our job as 21st Century Paul Reveres to raise the alarm that the enemy is within the gates working overtime to destroy the Republic and reduce us to absolute slavery.

The Elite Are Not Even Trying To Hide How Much They Hate The U.S. Constitution Anymore
The American Dream
July 5, 2011
In the United States today, it is becoming increasingly fashionable to openly trash the U.S. Constitution. Many among the elite are not even trying to hide how much they hate the U.S. Constitution anymore. As the Patriot movement and the Tea Party movement call for a return to the principles that this nation was founded upon, many among the elite and in the mainstream media are responding by publicly dumping on the U.S. Constitution. The level of vitriol that we are seeing for our founding fathers and for our Constitution is unprecedented. It turns out that the U.S. Constitution does not fit very well with the benevolent futuristic “Big Brother” totalitarianism that they want to impose on all of us. All of that talk about “freedom” and “liberty” in the Constitution does not exactly square with thecentralized global planning that the elite have in mind. The ruling elite believe that the “rights of the individual” must be greatly restricted for the “good of society” and for the “good of the environment”. Right now the “constitutional revival” that is happening in the United States is a direct threat to what the elite are trying to accomplish, so they are responding by openly attacking the Constitution.
At more than 90 percent of the law schools in the United States today, the U.S. Constitution is portrayed as a hopelessly outdated document that is in desperate need of revision or it is portrayed as a “living, breathing document” that we are free to alter as society “progresses”. In law schools across the country, law students are being taught that our founding fathers were racist, sexist, homophobic bigots that did the best that they could at the time.
Keep in mind that a very large percentage of our politicians and all of our judges go through these law schools. I personally sat in law school classes and listened to law professors trash the U.S. Constitution. This is really happening.
But these days it is apparently not enough to just poison the minds of law students.
Now the mainstream media is launching a major attack on the U.S. Constitution.
The latest issue of Time Magazine, the number one political magazine in the United States, has a picture of a half-shredded U.S. Constitution on the cover with the words “Does It Still Matter?” emblazoned across it.
This front page article was authored by Richard Stengel and unfortunately the article is not a defense of the U.S. Constitution.
Rather, Stengel insists in his article that the U.S. Constitution “must accommodate each new generation and circumstance.”
That is exactly the kind of thing that is constantly being pushed down the throats of law school students all over the country. Stengel also declares in his articlethat we must not allow the Constitution to be “an obstacle” that will keep us from making the “progress” that we need to make as a society….
“We can pat ourselves on the back about the past 223 years, but we cannot let the Constitution become an obstacle to the U.S.’s moving into the future with a sensible health care system, a globalized economy, an evolving sense of civil and political rights.“
This is typical of what the elite will do. They will applaud the Constitution as being a good document “for the past” but then they will talk about how we “need to move forward” because people are so much smarter now than they were back then.
The reality is that many elitists love to denigrate the circumstances under which the Constitution was drafted and they love to talk about how much more “sophisticated” we are today.
In an article entitled “Is It Time To Update The U.S. Constitution?” CNN’s Fareed Zakaria recently declared that it was time to reexamine our founding document that was created in a “cramped room” that had “shades drawn over the windows”….
By contrast, any talk of revising or revisiting the U.S. Constitution is, of course, seen as heresy. The United States Constitution was, as you know, drafted in a cramped room in Philadelphia in 1787 with shades drawn over the windows. It was signed by 39 people.
But Zakaria was kind compared to a lot of the other pundits out there.
On an ABC News political talk show over the weekend, Georgetown professor Michael Eric Dyson declared that there are “some gaps, some holes, lacunas, gulfs, abysses” in the Constitution and he went on to make the following statement….
“When it makes the transition from parchment to pavement, there again is the rub. The reality is when I talk about the document being living and vital, I’m talking about the interpretation of it. I’m talking about the meaning of it.”
Do you know why elitists love to talk about the Constitution being a “living” document?
It is because they feel like they have permission to change and “reinterpret” a document that is “living and breathing”.
Elitists love the idea that the U.S. Constitution “evolves”, and of course they believe that it is the role of the ruling elite to direct this “evolution”.
James Altucher, managing partner at Formula Capital, expressed his opinion of the U.S. Constitution in his recent article entitled “July 4th Is A Scam“….
Most importantly, lets not view the Constitution as gospel. Countries, people, systems, technology evolves. As they do, its important to see what from the past is good and what can be discarded.
What can be “discarded”?
But there are others out there that go even farther in trashing the Constitution.
So far we have examined quotes from elitists that show at least a few shreds of respect for the Constitution. They desperately want to change it and reinterpret it, but at least they acknowledge that is has played a beneficial role in American history.
There are others among the elite that are not afraid to openly declare hate for the U.S. Constitution.
For example, Michael Klarman of Harvard University Law School delivered a Constitution Day lecture at Johns Hopkins University last September 16th. His lecture was entitled “A Skeptical View of Constitution Worship“, and it was a blistering assault on the U.S. Constitution.
Klarman made four major points about “constitutional idolatry” in his speech….
I have four points I want to make today against constitutional idolatry, which is my label for our misguided tendency to blindly worship the Constitution, giving it credit for all the things we love and honor about our country.
(1) The Framers’ constitution, to a large degree, represented values we should abhor or at least reject today.
(2) There are parts of the Constitution with which we are still stuck today even though we would never freely choose them and they are impossible to defend based on contemporary values.
(3) For the most part, the Constitution is irrelevant to the current political design of our nation.
(4) The rights protections we do enjoy today, the importance of which I do not minimize, are mostly a function of political and social mores, which have dramatically evolved over time and owe relatively little to courts using the Constitution to protect them.
Remember, this is not some nutjob that was making this speech.
This was a professor of law at Harvard University.
Barack Obama went to the law school at Harvard University. Hordes of our future politicians and judges and law professors go through that place.
Klarman is not someone to be taken lightly.
Klarman’s remarks were noticed over at The Economist. It is an open secret that The Economist is a mouthpiece for the global banking elite and they were quite taken with what Klarman had to say. They published an article supporting Klarman’s ideas that was entitled “The Perils Of Constitution-Worship”.
In that article, those who love and support the U.S. Constitution were described as “infantile”….
Indeed, there is something infantile in the belief of the constitution-worshippers that the complex political arguments of today can be settled by simple fidelity to a document written in the 18th century.
In the United States today there is a tug of war over the U.S. Constitution. Either the “constitutional revival” being spearheaded by the Patriot movement and the Tea Party movement will eventually win, or the ruling elite and the mainstream media will eventually win.
The stakes are incredibly high. Just consider what Alex Jones has to say about the matter in the video posted above….
So will you stand up for the U.S. Constitution?
Great tests for this nation are coming. We are standing right on the verge of the economic collapse of America, and that will be a great time of challenge for the United States. Our loyalty to the Constitution will be pressed to the limit as society descends into anarchy.
Our politicians are supposed to take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. But sadly, most of our politicians today seem to think that the Constitution should be serving them.
In fact, this very attitude was clearly expressed in the Time Magazine articlementioned above….
“The Constitution serves the nation; the nation does not serve the Constitution.”
The inference, of course, is that once we have made enough “progress” we will be able to toss aside the U.S. Constitution like some sort of used rag.
Well, the reality is that there are tens of millions of red-blooded Americans that are not ready to give up on the U.S. Constitution.
If you are an American that still believes in liberty and freedom, don’t be afraid to let your voice be heard, because if none of us stand up the America that so many of us grew up loving will soon cease to exist.
