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.
