TYRANNY ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS: Lack of understanding of their constitutional roles by the Progressive Left and Democratic party is a principle causation of the dysfunctionality exhibited by the federal government. Today’s comments by Senator Feinstein (D) during a Senator Judiciary Committee hearing on a proposed assault weapons ban bill, clearly demonstrates the cause of most problems our country is facing. “Congress is in the business of making law. The Supreme Court interprets the law,” Senator Feinstein said.

What some have called an “astonishing display of constitutional ignorance,” Senator Feinstein articulated the core principle driving the behavior of the progressive left – we will do what we want, regardless if it is constitutional or not. This governing behavior now pits the federal government against the American people, which insiders close to the Senator say is “basically the first shot for tyranny.” The American people are systematically being stripped of their rights and are no longer protected by the Constitution.

This shocking admission of governance policy came at the end of an even more interesting exchange on the Second Amendment, which was started by a simple question from Senator Cruz(R) to Senator Feinstein. “The question that I would pose to the senior senator from California [Feinstein] is would she deem it consistent with the Bill of Rights for Congress to engage in the same endeavor that we are contemplating doing with the Second Amendment in the context of the First or Fourth Amendment?” Cruz asked.

It is evident from the distressed facial expressions and shaky voice of Senator Feinstein that she was extremely disturbed by the question. “I’m not a sixth grader,” Feinstein said in response. “Senator, I’ve been on this committee for 20 years. I was a mayor for nine years. I walked in, I saw people shot. I’ve looked at bodies that have been shot with these weapons. I’ve seen the bullets that implode. In Sandy Hook, youngsters were dismembered.”


Senator Feinstein continued, “I’m not a lawyer, but after 20 years I’ve been up close and personal to the Constitution. I have great respect for it. This doesn’t mean that weapons of war and the Heller decision clearly points out three exceptions, two of which are pertinent here.” She continued even more, “It’s fine you want to lecture me on the Constitution. I appreciate it. Just know I’ve been here for a long time. I’ve passed on a number of bills. I’ve studied the Constitution myself. I am reasonably well educated, and I thank you for the lecture.”

And then the bombshell, the first shot from a tyrannical government – “Congress is in the business of making law. The Supreme Court interprets the law,” the Senator proclaimed.

The people of the United States should be afraid when the federal government no longer recognizes the constitutional limits place on them by our founding fathers through the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. There are NO bounds for rules – begone second amendment, since you don’t need those guns. Begone first amendment, since you don’t need to talk that way. Begone forth amendment, since you truly don’t own yourself, we the government do. The death of a nation has always began with the simple words of Senator Feinstein – we are only in the business of making law, constitutional or not.


  1. I would suggest that Senator Feinstein get herself a new pair of reading glasses so that she can clearly see in the 1st Amendment the words – “Congress shall make no law” and in the 2nd Amendment – “shall not be infringed.” When she swore her sacred oath Feinstein made a contract to wholly stay within the confines and limitations spelled out in this nation’s ONLY Supreme Rule of Law.

  2. I don’t support her in the least, but her statement was correct about Congress making laws and the Supreme Court interpreting the law. Here’s the 1st Amendment:

    “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

    The Supreme Court is there to interpret the laws that Congress passes and to determine if they are Constitutionally sound. You can’t just take a snippet of the Amendment and leave out the rest so it appears to say something it doesn’t (“Congress shall make no law” is out of context). When a pro-gunner claims that Sen. Feinstein’s statements are not true it diminishes our cause and makes us look ignorant. Everyone should do their homework before spouting off nonsense just because they don’t like someone. None of us like Feinstein because of her views, but that doesn’t mean everything she says has no merit. You have to be careful with false claims and unverified statements; it affects your credibility. We need to pull together with facts, not fear or blind patriotism. Let’s be reasonable.

    • I think you are missing the point. The point is that Congress is to make no law that knowingly violates the constitution. They are not allowed by the supreme law of the land to create a law they know, or suspect breaks the supreme law. To do so violates their oath of office. It is the purpose of the supreme court to keep the legislature in check should they ever overstep that boundry, just as it is the Presidents responsibility to first assess the law before it is signed and enforce the laws that pass constitutional muster. When they start making laws that incrementally chip away at the rights asserted by the constitution and require the supreme court to step in to stop them, they have already violated the supreme law that they swore to uphold. If a law they make, infringes on even one person’s inalienable rights, then they are happily dancing down the road to tyranny.

  3. In the context of the second amendment Feinstein is infringing on that right. In try to ban all semiautomatics or limiting magazine size. Because for a law abiding citizen if they have only 10 or 6 bullets available that citizen has to stop to reload where as a criminal/s may not. That 3 to 5 second window leaves a citizen open to attack.

  4. Senator Feinstein is an idiot – she needs to think about the oath she took when the other idiots elected her. she says one thing and does the opposite. she in my estimation is not an American either – she should be flipping hamburgers at Mc Donalds.
