A Simple Oath

But a complicated task to fulfill.

Since George Washington first said the words on April 30, 1789, as prompted by Robert Livingston Chancellor of State of New York, every President of the United States has repeated the following simple presidential oath of office as part of the inauguration ceremony:

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

The oath is worded and administered in accordance with Article II, Section I of the U.S. Constitution.

Eric Holder, if confirmed, will be Obama's attorney general. He and his staff will have the obligation to scrutinize the new president's actions to make sure he lives up to his oath of office.

A lawyer's work is often to dissect, rationalize, twist and turn words and actions to fit the 'realities' of the situation.

Mr. Holder will no doubt find innovative ways to justify subverting the constitution.

If we had a mainstream media that wasn't bought by special interests, they would be jumping all over the first instance of the oath being broken. It should be their job to report facts but lies are what controls the populace.

What Obama action will be the first to burn yet another aspect of the root document of this great land?

And how long will it take, Jan. 21-22, a few days longer to get settled in?

Sounds like a good office pool.

Bets anyone?


  1. Obama's first violation of the Constitution will happen when he takes the oath of office -- an oath by which he has no intention to abide.

  2. Obama's already in violation of the Constitution and that oath of office he took when becoming a US Senator, which is the same oath taken by new presidents.

    He was behind the scenes, working over the US Senate and the White House, to get them to release that other 350 billion to the Wall Street banksters, violating that part of the Constitution that says ALL public monies shall be accounted for.

    The first 350 billion is gone and no one is really sure where. We've been told and promised--again--that they'll be more careful with this giveaway, keeping a keen eye on where that money's going...right.

    The monitoring system is NOT in place and won't be before the next 350 billion vanishes to offshore banking accounts in the Cayman Islands. After this 700 billion evaporates, they'll come back for another load of OUR money.

    That first 700 billion was only the ante in this poker game, there's NO limit on how much money the Wall Street con artists can steal from America.

    There's been talk coming from DC that we need to establish some type of national bank to absorb all of that radioactive garbage from the mortgage industry swindles.

    This swindle will move all of that toxic slop we'll absorb from Wall Street off the accounting sheets to produce a magical sleight of hand that will then show the US government to be healthy, financially speaking.

    That way, we’ll be able to spend more and more on the Wars for Empire and Israel Project, since the books show the federal government to be in the pink. (But no money for health care, what the fuck are you, some type of pinko?)

    The Wall Street gangsters, with the help of the Federal Reserve and the US Treasury, already inflated and blew up the Internet bubble, then the housing bubble and the stock bubble.

    Not much left to inflate and con the public with except to blow up the currency bubble.

    And when that baby pops, we’ll be feeling like those stranded coach class passengers on the downed US Airways jet; left to swim in freezing water, with the life rafts only for the use of the rich and famous.

    I'm still waiting for the year end bonus figures to come out for Wall Street.
    Wanna bet against my bet that the bonuses will be huge and some of that bailout money was used?
