Federal Judge: Constitution Not Worth Studying Anymore

551

According to 7th Circuit Judge Richard Posner, writing on Slate.com, it’s time for the Supreme Court – and, indeed, law students everywhere – to stop giving so much deference to that old, musty document known as the U.S. Constitution.

“I see absolutely no value to a judge of spending decades, years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, or seconds studying the Constitution, the history of its enactment, its amendments, and its implementation,” Posner wrote. “Eighteenth-century guys, however smart, could not foresee the culture, technology, etc. of the 21st century. Which means that the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the post-Civil War amendments (including the 14th), do not speak to today.”

Posner concluded: “In short, let’s not let the dead bury the living.”

Posner, an appointee of Ronald Reagan, is surely entering the initial stages of some form of regrettable dementia.

If anything, our current Supreme Court justices have strayed too far from their constitutional grounding. Increasingly, they put on those black robes and suddenly consider themselves the wisest men and women in the land, imbued with the kind of grand ideas and exceptional genius that renders the Constitution (and even legal precedent) matters of triviality. If these things can be used to support their learned opinion, great. If not, well, that’s fine too. No such banalities can be used to question a mighty Justice! Begone, peasant.

Posner is right, of course, that there are aspects of 21st century American life that are too far removed from the Revolution-era to make constitutional application an easy job. But then, that’s why we have the Supreme Court. If you could find every answer in the written text of that hallowed document, we would hardly need all of this “interpretation.”

But without a close study of the Constitution, its framers, and its intent, we are a ship lost at sea, simply making the rules up as we go along. At some point, Posner (and many other liberals) apparently forgot that the Constitution was – and is – one of the greatest legal foundations for government in the history of the world. Upon those brilliant insights, we built a country that permanently changed this thing we call life.

The grand importance of the Constitution, though, is not in its specificity or its one-to-one relevance in 2016. It’s the theme that is written between every calligraphic line: Whenever possible, the power of the federal government over the citizenry should be severely limited. This should be the guiding light of every Supreme Court Justice, every senator, every congressman, and every president.

“I think the Supreme Court is at a nadir,” wrote Posner at another point in his essay. “The justices are far too uniform in background, and I don’t think there are any real stars among them.”

Well, then, Judge Posner, this would be a pretty bad time for them to start ignoring the Constitution, wouldn’t it?

    Human nature doesn’t change and the Founders were spot on about that – they knew their history, which is but a record of human nature in action and they read their Shakespeare who delved into our nature in such an articulate and poetic way. We moderns arrogantly believe that we are so in touch with eternal verities, when we have such a paucity of good sense and perspective.

    if Judge Posner truly believes that he is no longer obliged to follow the prescriptions of the Constitution and no longer to uphold his oath, perhaps it is time for the old superannuary to retire or be impeached – his choice, a deference to old age.

    1. Cheryl Detar says

      Very well put.

    2. John Wirts says

      Was that old age or senility?

      1. mtman2 says

        Definitely a deep seated arrogance and long believed dishonor for the full dignity of his appointment.
        It maybe both mentioned however those words come from established thots = a “Freudian slip”, eh ~!

        1. John Wirts says

          Oh! Oh! Don’t tell me he(oops Forgot) HESHEIT is transgrnder too!

  2. kcwas says

    well we know this judge is not an AMERICAN IN ANY WAY don’t they take an oath also to this NATION..he needs to be taken out of his position … OUR FOUNDERS OF THIS BLESSED COUNTRY KNEW ALL IT TAKES TO MAKE AND KEEP A FREE COUNRTY THAT GOD BLESSED US WITH..

  3. John Wirts says

    our politicians and judges take an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution os the U.S. If then break that oath, thus proving they are immoral and corrupt, they should be removed from office! Further anyone who is a lawyer or judge and has the bar exam, and still tries to destroy the Constitution, should be tried for treason, and if found guilty disbared, and not allowed to hold any goverment or lobbying positions for life.

    1. Susan Short says

      An oath, to our politicians and judges today, means NOTHING!

    2. mtman2 says

      “Treason and disbarred”??
      He is advocating anarchy-!!!
      Nah treason is a firing squad level crime.
      Right outside their courthouse for crimes against the America.

      Imagine a LEO putting on the uniform/badge+gun then saying-

      “I’ll ignore laws on the books I swore to uphold, and now that I’m here I’ll do as I see fit.”

      He at least would be fired and if he did not surrender his weapon like any criminal- would be shot like one-
      RIGHT ON THE SPOT- as a threat to fellow officers and the community at large.

      Tell me if I’m wrong here ~!

        Full public execution for all convivted traitors judges included!

  4. Dale says

    Judge declares treason and violation of his oath of office. I as an American citizen want the judge removed and replaced by an oath keeping American servant of the people! So help me God

    1. JW says

      Yes. We all expect jurists to uphold the law. But isn’t that part of the oath of office Obama promised to do? The “Old Dead White Guys” had it right. It is the Newbies like Obama that think they know more and what is best that have no regard for the Constitution.

            Exactly and it surely is apparent with the way they hate Trump.

            All our enemies hate Trump.

            “Why?” asks the first man. “Are you a lawyer?”

            “No,” the other replies. “I’m a jerk.”

          6. Eleanore Whitaker says

            They hate Trump jackass because he hired mostly minorities in his Jersey casinos and then closed them and refused to pay them. He also stuck NJ taxpayers with billions in tax subsidies he made off with, not to mention the tens of billions in tax cuts he was rewarded with. Only a dickhead like you would ignore what all of us in the Metro area know for decades about Trump. Get a life you lazy loser.

          7. Marine1962 says

            At least Trump is his own man and not a bought and paid for Zombie and at least he knows how to deal with them…

          8. Tiger says

            Listen you bitch you don’t know chit from the crap that spews from your mouth.

            You go ahead and vote for that lying old bag Hillary and see what you get in the end and you will get it in the end.

            Now take your insults, your stupidity and your dildo and stick it in your mouth so we don’t have to listen to you.

          9. mtman2 says

            Trump business deallings aside for a minutel.

            Hellary directly has American blood, torture amd horror of the survivors as the 4 were waiting for her to send help and they were killed waiting when no help came. This over an 8hr time period.
            Just in that one Bengahazi event let alone all the Middle East with Arab Muslim’s, Christians and Yazidis

            At least 1/2 the info is out now. Now the actual video of the terror attack and carnage will be forced to be shown to the American public. The “buck” stops with her. This was her 3AM call = failure+treason.

            The woman’s a monster, who breathes lies with every breath never accomplished a legitimate thing except Chelsea and many think thats Vince Fosters illegitimate child- tho she did produce her.
            The woman is waay beyond pathologically an incorrigable sociopath to the extent of being criminally psychotic; ie- she can’t be helped or even help herself at this point of no conscience= she’s certifiable.

            Donald Trump is a savvy businessman that played the crony game within system as he let them use him but to his own advantage. He unlike Hellary has helped countless thousands of people get ahead.

            No business is foolproof as to errors, markets, permits, law suits, red tape, theft+fraud, even weather all effect outcomesl.
            Trump is rough and tough- not a manchild girlyboy like MAO’bama, his crew of unpatriotic socialist/statists and hegemony of his unelected sycophants as useful-idiots and Leftwing news media cabal. The parasites of the world the Liar-n- Chief kowtowed to- already fear a real man like Trump who will put America first and not give away the ranch ~!

          11. Dave McFarland says

            Eleanore, it appears you have read some “facts” obtained from false writers. It would serve no one to correct you on your own facts; so, I will settle with it being a miserable mistake you made because you are not able to research facts instead of opinions. That is one of the things I have found with most of my liberal friends. They seek out only opinions that suit their agenda.

          12. Eleanore Whitaker says

            The Republican party decided to allow the Tea Party attack dogs to lead. Already 3 of them are under investigation for wrongdoing. Don’t you so called “men” of the right get it?

            You are never going to rule this country. You are never going to force others to your mentally deranged wills. You are never going to use our tax dollars to make your lives easier and ours harder. Now get off that lazy butt and get a job, you no account freeloader.

          13. Dave McFarland says

            Eleanore, of which 3 people do you speak? Come on now. Why do you hate The Tea Party? Is it because over 28% of its members are non-white?

          14. James Maxwell says

            All you have to do is pay attention to what the Democrat Socialist and their ilk
            have done to the citizens of the United States. They speak in lofty and glowing
            terms promising the Sun, Moon and Stars when in fact they have been responsible
            for raising our National debt to over 18 Trillion dollars, causing massive unemployment, destroy jobs, putting more families on welfare and food stamps,
            allowing open borders so we are invaded daily by criminals from around the world
            not to mention the massive influx of drugs under their domination of the political
            spectrum. The media has kowtowed and bowed to their will and are willing
            accomplishes to the corrupt we are seeing in our own government from the
            Democrat Socialist and the RINO’s from the Right.

          15. Eleanore Whitaker says

            Really? I’d say all we have to do is look at the Republican Speakers of the House to see what you righties have done to decency, honesty and integrity. Tell us..How did that pedophile Hastert manage not to be outed by the rest of your boys in the GOP? Too bad though that the moron Tom DeLay has 3 strikes against and TX couldn’t ignore his criminality much longer. And then there’s the GA womanizing King, Gingrich. Great at stiffing the Middle Class while he cheats on Wife No. 1 while she’s undergoing chemo. Then, cheats on Wife No. 2 the minute she was diagnosed with MS and now he’s on to Wife No. 3 and converted to Catholicism where he hopes he dick will stay in his pants for a change.

          16. James Maxwell says

            Sounds more like you are trying to justify the corruption and total lack of
            morals and decency in the democrap socialshit party or run cover for Hildabeast
            and her pant dropping husband. Democrat Socialist seem to thrive in their
            total lack of morals and values in their destruction of family life and Morals.
            Even embracing islam as it guiding star today. Sorry elenaor but lack of
            morals are a political thaing and I personally do not support nor vote for those
            who lack those value. That is why I left the Democrat party a very long
            time ago.

          17. rdells says

            If what you say is true (seriously know it’s NOT) then you are clearly not a Republican, right? You perfectly described GOP politicians in your post.

          18. James Maxwell says

            I identify with the Republican Party platform most closely, however, that being
            said many in the party do not hold true to those stated ideals. There are many
            who claim to be Republican merely to get elected to office. Look at their record
            and it is obvious that the voters in their states are either blind or just plain out
            stupid and have not paid attention. we see that in voter turn out across the land.
            Democrats left GOD out of their party platform in the last election until it was
            brought up by some members and then the Chairman had to force the inclusion
            of GOD into their platform to insure they did not lose those voters who are
            still deeply Christian, primarily Black and Hispanic voters. The GOP has
            serious problems and are fighting the base to try and deny them their choice
            of candidates. To that end the Elitist are trying to circumvent the will of the
            voters to get their pet pimp in the White House. Neither party has lived up
            to their claim or respect, responsibility and love of the United States and
            our Constitution, the democrat socialist are actively working to subvert
            the Constitution and remove it and our Bill of Right from Americans.

          19. rdells says

            Won’t debate facts I don’t have time to fact-check, and literally ALL politicians ARE crookeder than a dog’s hind leg. It’s not “sold to the highest bidder”, it is “just send money, we’ll ‘fix’ it for you”. You do make some claims that are pretty far out there! Debate on glaring “Christian” hypocrisy another time.

          20. hiphop says

            Granted that is wrong, but I bet there are as many Democrats guilty of the same. Anyway what we have in our government is a move to destroy this country. They are pushing a one world order where wealth distribution will take more money from this country by more taxes for us. I personally do not want to support other countries especially when this country does not take care of its own. I do not want all of Europe and the United States ruled by one man and the UN. The white race will be eliminated eventually through interracial marriages and the muslim population procreating like rabbits to be the majority in the world. I am glad that I am older and hopefully will not see the destruction of this country.

          21. Bella Gray says

            If you bothered to check Ryan’s voting record he is voting with the Democrats. He is a RINO. There are also just as many or more Democrats with a shady home life, so I would not be casting stones on that one.

            The bottom line is what they did for the nation. What Obama has done on all levels is the worst of any president we have ever had. Frankly, he has destroyed the world. YES, DESTROYED, when he caused the mass migration of Muslims. They have been working steadily at destroying every country that has taken them. Their culture does not assimilate and worships an ideology that fosters taking over governments and killing people who will not convert to their beliefs. Take the time to look around at the world Eleanor. They are literally taking over every single country who hosts them. France is all but gone as is Brussels, Germany and Sweden will not be far behind them. They vote themselves into office and then start changing the laws.

            Look to London that recently vote in a Mulsim mayor. He has now send the women to the back of the room and just banned women from being on poster ads in public. Look closer to home at Dearborn, MI. Since their numbers are high enough they too have taken over to the point they have stoned a woman to death, burned another alive, and stoned a group of Christians.

            No Eleanore, there is very little that a Republican do that would top destroying the world. All your descendants will be forced under Shariah, because they have a birth rate of five to one, and up to four wives; that is illegal but our government is failing to stop. Just like they are failing to enforce so many other laws. If you want me to list pages of rape links and videos I can do that too. The media is hiding what is really happening, as they don’t want to upset the public, like we are all five-years-old. Yet that is socialism/communism already at work.

            Then look at what he has done allowing open borders. For everyone they let in there is 1/2 a job. I won’t even go into all the reasons we cannot afford them, since we are a debtor nation. We will become a 3rd world hellhole and that will lead to a civil war.

            I will quote John Kerry who recently issued a statement proclaiming this clause in referencing the ISIS genocide of Christians, “Humanitarian aid: Many of these genocide victims are now displaced from their homes. They cannot seek shelter in U.N. camps, because those places are too dangerous for minorities — and therefore they must depend heavily on church and private relief. Even as donor fatigue sets in as the conflicts persist, U.S. aid programs must ensure that these genocide victims are not shortchanged.”

            That is clearly stating these refugees slated for distribution for resettlement are dangerous to Christians and minorities. America is a 70+% Judeo-Christian nation! Thus by default it is also too dangerous to bring these Muslim refugees to our homeland. Read more at:

            That said America needs to wake up, because Muslims are the most serious danger to America there is. They crush Christianity every where they go. In fact every country they are in, the minute they have sufficient number, they begin take it over. Americans think Muslims are living here peacefully but they are not. They move into communities and do everything they can to intimidate or force the natives to move away.

            Listen to what this Muslim woman has to say, and she is using Pew research to back up her statements! Obama and Hillary have been lying through their teeth. This is absolutely a must see video.

            Oh let me show you what the Polish people did, you will be awestruck and amazed! It actually becomes mesmerizing. Democrats out there should wake up and learn something about this invasion of refugees, because this is a massive statement telling everyone it is wrong for civilized nations. All the countries who have been invaded feel the same way. Only the Polish have taken action and gotten rid of them all! Look and learn! All Muslim refugees need resettled back in safe-zones in the Middle East before this is us!

            hey eleanore you have to be a liberal progressive democrat. You point out to all the wrong doings of the republicans, however you say nothing about all the wrong doings of democrats and obama. Clinton has done more wrongs, cause people to be killed, lie, lie lie, worked up a system to get foreign countries to pay outrageous fees for speeches to give money to the Clinton foundation which only spends 15% of every dollar on helping others, than you have obama allow women to use mens rooms and males to use women rooms. You have obama lie about obamcare, keep your doctor, keep you plan and you will save $2500 a year on insurance costs. I am still waiting for that. Some day you will wake up get your head out of the sand, but i am afraid that will to late because the usa will be in a depression greater than 1929, however you never knew about it or lived it as i did. I really feel sorry for you because you are going to face things that you felt would never happen in the usa.

          23. Dorothy Foster says

            I don’t feel sorry for her… It is she and all her kind that have caused this mess..
            Liberal.. socialist… Democrats… Feel the burn Eleanor!!

            WTF? You a frickin’ Nazi?

          25. mholdcraft says

            Yes, Eleanore we know only Republicans cheat on their wives, only Republicans take bribes or can be bought off by special interests. What planet are you from? You have a problem with more than just Republicans. You have a problem with reality.

          26. NoMoreMarxistsInDC says

            Remind me, who was the only President to be impeached in over 100 years for sexual moral turpitude and then lying to Congress about it???? Oh, THAT’S RIGHT!!!! It was a DemoCRAP. Does Bill Clinton come to mind—Anyone??????

          27. rdells says

            He was never impeached, just threatened to be, by the stupid element of Congress

          28. SNuss says

            No, Slick Willie WAS IMPEACHED, but not convicted. His trial was held in the Senate, and he did commit the crimes of which he was accused. However, enough Senators failed to uphold their oaths of office by voting to convict him, so he got off.

          29. rdells says

            1st time in my life have been wrong! At least, half wrong. The popular use of impeached as “thrown out” does not align with the legal meaning “bring formal charges”. Any way you slice it, impeachment is the final fantasy for obsessive hyper-partisans.

          30. SNuss says

            Why is wanting to impeach, convict, and remove a politician who fails to obey the laws that they swore an oath to uphold a “final fantasy for obsessive hyper-partisans”? Are they “too big to be convicted”?

          31. rdells says

            Remind me. Was there a conviction of some “crime” that fell out of the impeachment process? If so, I retract my partisan comment.

          32. SNuss says

            Yes, there was a plea deal reached for Clinton’s crimes:

            The false testimony at the root of this matter came in 1998 during a deposition in the lawsuit by Paula Jones alleging that Mr. Clinton, while governor of Arkansas, had sexually harassed her. At one point Mr. Clinton, in attempting to deflect questions designed to show a pattern of bad behavior, denied having had sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky. The President contended then, and continues to maintain, that he did not technically lie because the activities he engaged in with Ms. Lewinsky did not fit the definition of sexual relations used in the trial. That argument was demolished by Judge Susan Webber Wright, who presided over the Paula Jones case. Cutting to the core issue, she found that the president had given ”intentionally false” testimony under oath, fined him $90,000 and referred the matter to the disciplinary committee that has now recommended disbarment.

            Read more at: http://www.nytimes.com/2000/05/25/opinion/mr-clinton-s-disbarment-case.html
            Clinton also accepted a 5-year suspension of his law license in Arkansas.

          33. Bimu says

            So lying, cheating, stealing, abusing powers of office, death…this is Okay with you ? Those are not the things of fantasy. Those are the things of reality in the world of Clinton and Obama.

          34. rdells says

            Your “reality” has no association with facts, my friend

          35. Bimu says

            You are correct !

            Plus, a while before that he was disbarred. HMMM………….

          36. Bimu says

            You are incorrect !

          37. Brenda says

            Eleanor, both parties have had and will continue to have their rogue members. But, while listing all the ills of the republican members may have given you great pleasure, what about your democrats? Wiener and his selfies, Rangel and his tax dodging, as well as many who have also been unfaithful to their wives, a president that used the oval office for his interludes with a staffer.
            No, there is no one party that is worst than the other as they are both guilty.

          38. tinytim says

            I think you have forgotten Bill Clinton, Nixon? now what’s your problem about class start looking around about the past. Then judge

          39. TadhgMcLir says

            Nice, instead of addressing the problem you answer “well you have problems too…” Sounds like a kindergarten response. YES Both sides have an over-abundance of Turkeys who only want to feather their nest. So kick ’em all out and vote for someone who will do the Right thing.

          40. jim_wright says

            When they were investigated the republicans didn’t circle the wagons and lie for them the way the democrats do when ever a democrat is caught in a corrupt or criminal act.

          41. Eleanore Whitaker says

            How can an Democrat EVER lie when your attack dogs of the Tea Party are on every word out of any Dems mouth?

            A new survey from YouGov finds that millennials have more favorable views of socialism than of capitalism…

            The survey, taken at the end of January, found that 43 percent of Americans under 30 had a favorable view of socialism. Less than a third of millennials had a favorable view of capitalism.
            http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/02/11/poll-millenials-prefer-socialism-over-capitalism/

          49. Bimu says

            I don’t have a survey to draw from but it is for sure that a good many of millenials have had trouble finding a job. Those that have, have ‘menial’, beneath them, jobs, have been given most everything they have, meaning they didn’t actually work for it, having to produce, pay their taxes and then juggle what is left to provide for themselves as being self-sufficient. Freebies, freebies, freebies, paid for by their parents or by the government based upon spending through incurring debt incumbent on borrowing from the future.

          50. JohnEngelman says

            Republicans should be ashamed to complain about “incurring debt incumbent on borrowing from the future.” Incurring debt is the result of Republican tax cuts.

          51. Bimu says

            They should be ashamed for not fighting more. Tax cuts are born of and for personal freedom. Taxes are born of government in the name of socialism once those rates have reached proportionality to individual incumbency.

          52. JohnEngelman says

            You idiots have never figured out that it is not possible to cut taxes, raise military spending, and balance the budget.

          53. Bimu says

            You my kind sir, should pull out pen and paper and mathematically refute yourself. That by having increased number of jobs, thereby increasing tax revenue, tax rates can and should be cut, Balancing the budget is not as hard as you must fantasize by cutting ridiculous waste and redundant spending. You can eliminate half the cabinet positions right off the bat if you believe in the Constitution, thus States Rights. Get rid of all of Obama’s regulatory Czars as well. I don’t believe they are legal personnel in the first place. There will come a reckoning with welfare distribution and entitlement spending or else. By the way, without your military, my military, you don’t have to worry about a thing because the world is largely on “Ready, Set, Go” to invade and overtake as our internal destruction has given great encouragement.

          54. JohnEngelman says

            Taxes have usually been higher under Democratic presidents.

            According to a Wall Street Journal article that appeared Jan 9, 2009 from the presidency of Harry Truman to that of George W. Bush there have nearly always been more jobs created under Democratic presidents as under Republican presidents. The top tax rate was 70% under Jimmy Carter. When he was president an average of 2,600,000 jobs were created per year. When Ronald Reagan was president the top tax rate declined to 28%. An average of 2,000,000 jobs were created every year.

            http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2009/01/09/bush-on-jobs-the-worst-track-record-on-record/

            According to a Nov 6, 2012 article in The Wall Street Journal, “Since 1900, the Dow has averaged a 7.8% annual gain under Democratic presidents, compared with a 3% annual gain under Republicans, WSJ reported earlier this year.”

          59. rdells says

            Simple to just look it up yourself. U will learn you have it back-assward. Fascism is corporate control of govt. and has indeed led to police statehood – less than a century ago.

          60. Bimu says

            fascism is a political system headed by a dictator in which the government controls business and labor and opposition is not permitted.

            Where am I wrong and you – so – right. Your democrats prefer the government control business and as such control the population. Government regulations and legislation and some very stringent taxes, fees, licenses, permits….. tend to strangle and control business. At some point, the dictator, ala. Obama – “pen and phone, executive order, ‘czars’, secret deals – ala, Iran, United Nation agreements without Senate confirmation (Constitutional duty), government control under the guise of civil rights (good luck with that depending on which way the wind blows in the bathroom)( Obamacare – dictating to insurance companies as well as hospitals, doctors, pharmaceuticals, private individuals, the small business person as well as large (over/under 50). There is no distinct line between socialism/communism/fascism although economic systems are not for the most part, political system.
            By and large, the democrats want the government into everything and therefore into everyone’s life. Republicans don’t up for the Constitution like they should but the Democrats have shredded it. The rule of law is all but a farce under Democrats AND THE PC crap is their ammo.

          61. rdells says

            You don’t know what you are talking about. Over and OUT!

          62. Bimu says

            Why don’t you go get of piece of Hillary’s teat and suck on it. Of course, that is only if you are a woman. Admit what you are and at least have some self-respect. Judgment day is near and it really probably doesn’t concern a ballot box at this point. At this point, “what does it matter, what difference does it make” ? The Russians, the Chinese, the Iranians, the North Koreans, ISIS boys…you name the adversary, they have a bead on us and you got your head up your butt or someone else’s. A) History does repeat itself; B) Empires rise and empires fall; C) Leaders become followers and D) All of the above are happening as we live and breath. STUPID is as STUPID does !!!

            Say what you want, slant all you will, your facts don’t belie the whole story. Business is cyclical. Government putting its silver lining touches upon free markets only hinder. The laws enacted take time to give results, good or bad. Regulations are much quicker in effect, good or bad, almost always bad. By the time an administration gets its AGENDA in gear, times up, so the effects roll onto the next group, usually the opposition party. Say what you want, no president, no congress, of either party domination, has a positive effect on the economy. When you stifle the free market with taxes and regulations and currency manipulations (printing and valuations), you doom creativity and production, I don’t care who is in power. Your stats should show Democrats are fond of such actions while the republicans are not and try to undo those effects. Say what you want !

          69. JohnEngelman says

            It is pointless to try to reason with you. The Democrats are better managers of the economy. Even Donald Trump agree with me.

            (CNN)Before Donald Trump was a front-running Republican presidential candidate, the real estate mogul believed that the nation’s economy ran better when Democrats were in control and that Hillary Clinton would be a strong negotiator with foreign nations.

            “In many cases, I probably identify more as Democrat,” Trump told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in a 2004 interview. “It just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans. Now, it shouldn’t be that way. But if you go back, I mean it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats. …But certainly we had some very good economies under Democrats, as well as Republicans. But we’ve had some pretty bad disaster under the Republicans.”

          70. Bimu says

            “Seems” that way…….do you think fudging the numbers, outright misrepresentation of income, GDP, productivity, labor participation and employment rates are accurate and truthful ?

            The Internet was created during Reagan’s years (about 1983) but the Dot.com era didn’t start until the 90’s and began to collapse at the end of Clinton’s second term. Bush inherited to fallout. Bush had A complete Democratic Congress who pushed Dodd-Frank and housing regulations that led to the sub-prime collapse in the housing/real estate market. Business is cyclical and politicians tend to screw up free markets and capitalism much more than they ever help, Dems and Repubs, Congress and the President ! Now the courts are in play to only make matters worse !!!

          71. Peatro Giorgio says

            Your so called Fauzlx facts are just that
            One need only look to Calvin Coolidges presidency unemployment rate 1.5% inflation rate of 1.3/4%. Very low tax rates. Then look to JFK presidency he inherited high unemployment with 95% tax rates JFK reduced tax rates by 25% unemployment nearly disappeared . Then we had Carter unemployment rate of 15% Reagan came in cut taxes rebuilt the military exspand job oppertunitys Turned around inflation rates all while having to deal with a majority of dumbo rats. in the house. Then let us move on to Bill Clinton. Economy grew when the house and Senate wete in control by republicans. Welfare to work fair reform reduced corporate an personal taxes . Jobs oppertunities grew inflation stalled The republican Contract with America work an it worked so well that Billy boy was forced to declare the end of big goverment. . To find the truth one need only look to the states. Those controled by republicans in both the Govenorsanion an their legislative bodies those states are prospering. Then look to the dumbo rats states which have been controled for 20 years or more by dumbo rats. Are in deep financial stress so deep there is no WaY out but bankruptcy. But they can by law even do that. Further more Those dumbo rat states are losing population an corperations are moving to the red states. Where taxes are low an a intelligent educated work force resides. So much for your Faux fake as propaganda. Keep reading the Washington post an listening to MSNBC ABC aN CBS talk about bullshit news sources.

          72. JohnEngelman says

            Your ignorance is surprising even for fixthisnation. In 1928, which was Calvin Coolidge’s last full year in office, the unemployment rate was 4.2%.

            http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0104719.html

            In 1960 and 1962 the unemployment rate was 5.5%. That is hardly considered to be high. The top tax rate was 91%, not 95%. It was reduced to 77% in 1964. Kennedy had already been killed.

            https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-soi/02inpetr.pdf

            The highest unemployment ever got under Jimmy Carter was 7.8%, not 15%. Under Ronald Reagan it rose to 10.8%.

          73. Peatro Giorgio says

            Well truth be told I wasn’t in the least bit suprised as to how ignorant you are . Read the following WWW. PRESIDENTIAL RECORDED. THE most prosperous presidency Inflation 1&3/4% unemployment 1&1/3% .As for Kennedys presidency did you not read what I had written. JF K WAS INFACT both a Fiscal an social conservative. After all he not only cut taxes but he also rebuilt the military industrial complex an added 200,000 troops also he cut social spending . And He alao refused to sign The civil rights bill. Now how stupid can you be. When Reagan took the presidency unemployment was at 10.5 % by the last year of his second term he had cut it by more then half.. For you to post progressive based links as your sources speaks loudly as to your partisan stupidity. Hopefully like myself noone elae fell for it.

          74. JohnEngelman says

            When Ronald Reagan was inaugurated the unemployment rate was 7.5%, not 10.5%. Unemployment rose to 10.8% November 1982.

            My source for that information is the US. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

            https://fred.stlouisfed.org/data/UNRATE.txt

            When Jimmy Carter was president there was a shallow recession that lasted for six months. When Ronald Reagan was president there was a deep recession that lasted for sixteen months. My source for that is the National Bureau of Economic Research.

            http://www.nber.org/cycles.html

            When Jimmy Carter was president an average of 2,600,000 jobs were created per year. Under Ronald Reagan that declined to 2,000,000 jobs per year. My source for that is The Wall Street Journal.

          75. Peatro Giorgio says

            Here’s the facts you refuse to print. Jimmy Carters Misery index at 21.98% . GDP or Gross domestic product Droppedby 9.6 percent. Carters recession began in his last year of office losing more jobs then during the last worst recession after World War 2. When theN the nation converted from a war time economy to a civilian based economy. Carter had no economic growth an no plan for a recover. Heres the facts Carter bitched about President Ford’s Misery index of just 12.8% . But Carter double that.
            In Reagans first 16 months of office Carters recession was in full swing. Reagan with his Tax policies being dribbled in while demo-rats had control of Congress . He still managed to bring down the Misery index by more then 10 points Further more Reagans economy grew by more then 7.6 percent.an creating more then 7 million jobs . It’s easy to post misguided deceitful statistics when discluding all the facts. Reagans recession began in the last year of a failed Carter administration. .stop lying. Think Independently stop wirh the Partisan lies. For myself this nations greatest Presidents where Washington for winning our independence

            Your unwavering promotion of liberalism revisionist history . Last 6 months of 1979 Carters last year in Office began the deep recession of 79 80 an through 1981 into early 1982 16 months of Reagans adminasrtaion. Facts are facts Federal Bureau of labor an statistics. Is my source Try reading the entire economic data from the 4 year term for Carter administration GDP dropped by 9.6 Percent . Therefore how was it even possible for his Carters administration to have produce Your claimed 2.3 miilon jobs per year. Next up The Misery index which at the time was used by each admin as a measure Of economic success. Carter entered office with a Misery index left by the Ford administration of just 12.6 percent. 4 years later . That Misery index was at 21.98 % . My friend wake the hell up . In all 4 of Carters years his economy had not created 2.5 million jobs. That is one of the main reason he lost his bid for reelection . That an how he allowed the military to become unprepared levels of military readiness equal to that or lower then prior to world war 1.

            What you call “liberalism revisionist history” is my well documented explanation of what really happened, as opposed to what you have heard from various unreliable sources, and which you believe because it conforms to what you want to believe.

            The inflation that began in 1979, and which ended after 1982 was due to fluctuations in the world price of petroleum over which neither Carter not Reagan had much control.

            According to The Wall Street Journal article I have already linked to about 16,000,000 jobs were created during the Reagan administration. That is less than half the 10,400,000 jobs created during the Carter administration in half the time.

          83. Peatro Giorgio says

            Federal Bureau of labor an statistics. Read it . Then dig deeper remember this a The GDP statistics you sited were based upon house hold incomes . When theN in the middle to late 1970s more women began to enter the labor market. Not because of available employment opportunities but because house hold incomes required them to work . Which accounts for the slight increase in GDP statistics. What one finds after delving deeper is Carters recession sent many women back home accounting for the reduction of GDP for the 1st 2 years of the Reagan Administration. . Yes sure we can pull what ever it is we choose to cherry pick. That certainly isn’t the method for which I have utilized, given complete proveable data & statistics. I much prefer to research more methodically. Carter Benefited from a fairly strong economy left him by Ford only to have destroyed that very economy. THROUGH HIGHER TAXES spent on nothing more then social welfare spending plus a greatly enhanced federal banking an corporate regulations ..

          84. JohnEngelman says

            President Carter did not raise taxes. Ronald Reagan cut them while raising defense spending. That led to a tripling of the national debt.

            I will not discount Any aforementioned spelling or Capital usage errors. Frankly they are insufficient in use in order to comprehend just what is written.. As to the wall street Journal hell yes it is left slanted.. As to those sources I use as an independent..CBO, Congressional Budget Office , Congressional Library. Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics. As for immigration information I reference The Archives of immigration an naturalization. However. What I do not resort to is Cherry picking Facts that only suit my desired claims . I try my best to sight those facts which better paint the entire picture. You on the other hand merely use half truths half or less of available information.. Once again HELL YES THE WALL STREET JOURNAL IS LEFT SLANTED..By using left leaning sources you can not claim any impartiality. ( Responding to your insinuation ) That I may or may not be well eduacted. Like others your opinion clearly indicates you seem to suggest You might be far better informed. ( If I were you I should not count my life on that suggestion. ) Still waiting on your reply in reference to JFK.

          89. JohnEngelman says

            Cutting the top tax rate from 91% to 70%, was different from cutting it from 70% to 28%, like Ronald Reagan did.

            Even then, the economy was growing before the tax cuts under Lyndon Johnson – not Kennedy – and the unemployment rate was declining.

          90. Peatro Giorgio says

            There’s no doubt That Kennedy hadn’t lived to see his economic strategy work to its fullest. After all JFK died in December of 63. Johnson had absolutely nothing to do with the economic development. He merely fulfilled Kentucky s last remaining days in office. Though it is reasonable to say Johnson did increase Troup size in Vietnam. Where as Kennedy had advisors an a relatively small contingency of Troupes in Nam. Yes it is true the economy grew under Johnson but that was all the effects of Kennedy s economic plane..Which then Thought in the Bussiness corporate world could count on being stable. Enabling them to hire more employees an purchase larger amounts of materials. Corperation will not invest more heavily under a heavier overly burdensome tax an regulation structure. Kennedy opened that door for them to do so.
            As had Reagan.. Remember Most bussiness have 5 ,10, 15 or 20 year plans. Those plans are determined by Rules regulations an Tax structures. Further more 99.9 % of those who practice solid bussiness strategies do not move instantaneously. But more slowly am methodically. Note After G H Bush took over after Reagan. The Reagan economy was still growing aN improving. We then seen the slow down of Bushes Tax increases just as Bush was leaving office an Clinton was entering. Then the economy did not take off Until Clinton signed onto the Welfare reform and tax reductions put in place . By the Republican House with the Contract with America. Fiscal conservatism Notater of what party has always lead to a stronger economy an improved living conditions for everyone. One thing which has always troubled me is the upwards of 33% who pay zero federal income tax.. my belief an opinion is everyone must have skin in the game after all everyone enjoys the very same rights an privileges. My opinion is a flat fair tax of 10% Across the entire economy. Zero deductions The same 10% rate for corperation as well personal income. This position will greatly reduce the need for IRS agents as well accountants. Fill out your tax card send it it with your personal check,money order.

            The Latin adverb sic (“thus”; in full: sic erat scriptum, “thus was it written”)[1] inserted after a quoted word or passage, indicates that the quoted matter has been transcribed exactly as found in the source text, complete with any erroneous or archaic spelling, surprising assertion, faulty reasoning, or other matter that might otherwise be taken as an error of transcription.

            The notation’s usual purpose is to inform the reader that any errors or apparent errors in quoted material do not arise from errors in the course of the transcription, but are intentionally reproduced, exactly as they appear in the source text. It is generally placed inside brackets to indicate that it is not part of the quoted matter.

            Sic may also be used derisively, to call attention to the original writer’s spelling mistakes or erroneous logic.[2]

            You are not only unshakably ignorant. You have the vulgarity of a high school thug.

          93. Peatro Giorgio says

            How great to the extent you shall travel to prove to the world of both your naivity, an ignorance. For even one with half a brain is well aware Wikipedia Web site is a enter what you will. With zero based fact no matter the subject matter it is up tO the viewer tO rsearch . Wikipedia is not responsible for any mistakes ,flawed or misleading information.

            As for the vulgarity of a high school thug. Was it not you troll who pronouced That I were ignorant.
            I understand Just how you might feel when faced with true historical data..
            Couldn’t find any argument with my JFK facts could you.
            Our nations 4 Greatest Presidency George Washington, Calvin Coolidge, JFK Ronald Reagan. Washington for winning our independence. The other three for best economic practices.

          94. rdells says

            Mostly true, but not quite 100%. I’m an old angry white man and I’ve seen the disaster the Republicans have wrought on this country, particularly the T-Bagger variety. My mental faculties remain quite intact and I despise them passionately for what they have done.

          95. Laddyboy says

            rdells: When you add “Democrats and Republicans” to your comment, then I will be able to 100% agree with you. I see the Republicans and the Democrats working together as a “UNITY PARTY”. Most in both camps are working against the U.S. of America.

          96. rdells says

            They are working “FOR” themselves and their accomplices. Democrats certainly are not innocent in the ruin of the USA, but firmly believe they are not as evil – probably because they are not as organized. OK, throw them in there.

          97. Bimu says

            Democrats walk and talk in lockstep. They are organized by policy and platform. The problem is they are without doubt now socialist and for the police state government….IRS and EPA being the two prime examples.

          98. Eleanore Whitaker says

            The Republicans cannot by any stretch of their bizarre imaginations explain why since their Republican majority in the House has flushed nearly 65% of our tax revenues to their states, states like LA, KA, OK and IA are all having to shut down hospitals and schools. Are these people nuts or what?

            If their states get twice what they pay in federal tax revenues, what in hell are they doing with all that money?

          99. rdells says

            Amen

          100. SNuss says

            Chaffetz edited the video for length, but also offered the entire video for anyone who wanted to view it.
            As to the Benghazi hearings, they did prove that:
            1. Hillary repeatedly denied hundreds of requests for additional security for the Benghazi compound.
            2. Hillary repeatedly lied about a video being the cause of the attack.
            3. Hillary failed to send help when the compound was attacked. (Remember her “3:00 AM phone call” ad?).
            As to the editing of the e-mails, that was done to protect classified information, not to alter the intent of the e-mails. It seems that Gowdy was more concerned with protecting classified information than Hillary was.

          101. Bimu says

            Lest we forget, this committee is how we even found out about Hillary’s personal server and the trail of emails. It all caught up with her but whether or not she is treated as a citizen should be, i.e., held responsible with due consequence of penalty, remains to be seen. Her unprofessional actions, her lack of judgement, her uncaring attitude, her better than thou mindset, caught up when the committee started to uncover the events of the evening. I won’t hold my breath considering the dishonest administration she was attached to.

          102. SNuss says

            Sad, but probably true.

          103. SNuss says

            It hasn’t seemed to stop the Democrats from lying as yet, in part due to their sycophants in the Lamestream media covering for them.

          104. gonzales27 says

            Well if that were a criteria for good government,why is slick Willie still so popular?

          105. Janeen Thompson Rice says

            Because Dumbocrats are still stood and NEVER LEARN!!

          106. Jordan48 says

            Because people liked him personally. Bill came across as very personable and sincere. People liked him because they peppered under I’d Presidency. Many when now refuse to adding any blame to him because of the collapse of the housing market. Yet. It has been proven that Clinton exacerbated the eventual collapse by relaxing mortgage Finance standards so that more lower income families could buy homed. This originally started under the Carter administration. Clinton took the concept and put the basic concept on steroids. This, the housing market collapse.

          107. mtman2 says

            Very astute analogy of the truth as how that house of cards was built and by whom.
            Not to as it seems often is, forget Andrew CUOMO 11th U.S. secretary of Housing+Urban Development.
            Fromm 1/29 1997 thru 1/20 2001; joined the Clinton administration in 1993 as Assistant Secretary for Community Planning+Development–> in HUD.
            King RAT governor of N.Y. now!
            A rotten creep from the inside out from way back and an instrument part of what caused the 2008 crash and the still serious worldwide global downturn we’re still in because of it ~!

          108. Eleanore Whitaker says

            Awww…Did your wife catch you doing the nasty with another woman and unlike Hillary, she dumped your dopey butt? I am so going to love you numbnuts when not only Hillary but Elizabeth Warren are President and VP…oooooh and how your balls will shrink to gnat size, won’t they?

          109. gonzales27 says

            Please put down the crack pipe,it’s affecting your thought process

          110. NoMoreMarxistsInDC says

            Don’t start accusing the Repubs of moral turpitude if you don’t want the list of Dems and their moral turpitude that would at least 5 times the number of Repubs.

          111. Jordan48 says

            There is no doubt that your arguments have merit. These individuals have no business being entrusted by we, the people, in offices of public trust. Anyone of these incidents have or could have been used to compromise the integrity of their office. I refer you to the Biblical standard that God set for men who holds offices of public trust.

            That being said we have seen both Demonic-Rats and Republi-Cons dishonored and physically shamed because they could not constrain themselves from eating the forbidden fruit of their desire.

            The present life and death struggle facing this nation and it’s people is not rooted in partisan politics so much as it is about the survival of this republic. It is whether our U S Constitution will be cast off so that would be tyrants and oppressive governmental agencies can circumvent and abridge the rights of the people.

            There is no doubt that the present leader of this nation is in truths Marxist Muslim. Even a blind man can readily discern this truth. Yet, there are manycwho have eyes but will not see. They have ears but will not hear. This man of grievous deceptions has deceived many. If they knew whom it is that they serve, they would be truly ashamed and horrified.

          112. Pat says

            Eleanore, Really!!!!! Shall we begin on the DemoRats? We could begin with both clintons, pelosi, reid, obama (No first letter caps on purpose) and go on and on from there. Eleanore, don’t you think that you are kinda getting in a little over your head? I think we could ALL probably agree that we have CROOKS in both parties, however, there is NO WAY you can look to the righties for ALL that has been done to decency, honesty and integrity. They all go into office poor as church mice and come out extremely wealthy (That is, IF they ever leave). As far as Tom DeLay, it is my understanding that he was cleared. Those were charges cooked up against him for political reasons. Like many are! One more thing, I would much rather have Gingrich BACK in office than obama or hilliary. At least Gingrich is an American citizen and tried to build America up – NOT TEAR IT DOWN. No politician’s cheating on his wife affected America/Americans as much as obama and his minions and Muslin Zars.

          113. pysco says

            Please don’t use words you don’t understand like honesty, decency, and integrity….. Obama lies on a daily basis, how many lies has Hillary Been caught lying…Hillary and Obama armed the enemy, thats treason, Bill Clinton committed how many rapes, and getting BJ’s from interns….. Biden can’t keep his hands off of peoples daughters and wives…. Obama hasn’t cept his campaign promisses… Obama has appointed people to positions that openly aid the enemies of the United States…… Both parties have members that should have been booted long ago…… But, obviously I don’t have party blindness….. WHY DON’T YOU TRY BEING AN AMERICAN, AND NOT A PARTY MEMBER…

          114. mtman2 says

            As faulty as Ryan may be for OUR Conservative side of what America was intended to represent;
            Nancy Piglosi couldn’t pull off being a checkout girl for screwing up as that takes brains and honesty. She is true definition of imbecile, and Webster’s should have her picture under that definition
            Dirty Harry Rude is the definition of a hate filled mental case; dittos from above for mentalcase.
            Communist anti-Constitutional Barry Soetero; aka MAO’bama has been as Hellary- an incorrigible sociopathic+pathologic liar their entire lives while parasitizing and scamming their way thru life.
            The entire Democrat party is now Far-Left socialist/statists whom you have and would suffer under same as us ~!

          115. Eleanore Whitaker says

            Only a mountain man who lives and dies with a gun in his hand posts your kind of drivel.

            Ryan is a Tea Bagger paid by Charles and David Koch. Like his buddies in attack doggery, Issa, Cornball Cornyn, Walker, McConnell, Chaffetz, Cotton and Gowdy…the biggest bunch of ingred, under educated hicks to hit Congress since the days of the Confederacy, you boys have lost your power.

            So keep up your spiteful, militant, belligerent, snarky, sneering and bellowing. It will get you no where. All ou have is Trump you stupid example on inbred “ignernce.”

            As for your Republicans…with Trump at the helm, you morons are in for a huge surprise. I live in the state that is paying Trump’s casino taxes and the unemployment he caused.

            You hicks and redneck Rambos are big mouths with no brains and no dicks. Time for you to hang it up. Your days of power and might BS are over.

          116. mtman2 says

            Hahahaha, sound like you wish you could to grow a pair online for the pansy-boy Far-Left.
            Nice try for a gradeschooler attempt aiming at the landscape with poor rhetoric and facts.
            1) Ryan is a RINO(tried to point out tho to no avail) = definitely no TEA Party guy, nor are the Koch’s.
            Eleanore- your guy former Nazi now Commie NewWorldOrder dude George Soros is the real player and your Far-Left moneyman- backing haters of America. He has indictments and criminal charges in how many countries he’s shafted for the Globalist’s breaking their economies(England+France for starters).

            Lets see- the “Confederacy” oh yeah that would be the same folks that pushed thru Dred Scott, started the unCivil war for slavery, and later Jim Crow laws = the Democrats.

            See Eleanore it was the Party of Frederic Douglas, Susan B. anthony, Charles Finney and Abraham Lincoln of the ABOLITIONISTS = the Republican Party then that fought slavery- run by RINO’s nowl.
            They resent us true Conservatives more than you commie/statist sheeple.

            See Eleanore WE are only Republicans to vote in the Primaries yet WE are the swing vote.
            Eleanor 60% of us stayed home in 2012. However Trump is a hard charger- not a mealy mouth girly-boy bowing and scraping to the parasitic world with their hands out.
            They already fear Trump for putting America first = no more free rides on U.S. taxpayers from hard earned money. You work don’t you?

            Your ‘fearless leaders’ are pathologic criminals, robbing the future generations = your children and grandchildren = pushing $20-trillion on the cuff+$120-trillion in unfunded mandates.
            How are you gonna pay that back = NOT-!!! You’ve been lied to so long you’re buying into the Liberal lie of we’ll get the money somehow = where? Cannot run a household that way nor a nation.
            See Eleanor “WE the People” are the government = Of, For and By with “unalienable RIGHTS”
            You can’t take them away, and why would you want to Eleanore- WE don’t hate you gal ~!

          117. Bimu says

            There is enough corruption and immorality on both sides of the aisle to choke a mule and kill the American Dream and your bull is just icing on the crap cake.

          118. rdells says

            Oh yea! But they are “Forgiven” and believe it is just fine to go on committing all their crimes unimpeded and without remorse. Useless pack of hypocritical phony Christians. Pathetic (insert long string of profanity here).

          119. Mathew Molk says

            What would know about the miffle class,,,,,You have to have a job and go to work every day,,,,,That aint you, kid.

            PS, Don’t bother to do your Clinton impersonation and lie about your productive life,,,,Everybody knows you have been on the dole from day one.

          120. gonzales27 says

            Well one of Obama’s campaign promises was to spread it around

          121. mtman2 says

            Absolutely right amundo- as Rush would put it ~!

          122. rdells says

            I do give you a thumbs up on the corruption in DC, but you did leave out the Fascists and Nazi sympathizers on the right (regular Repubs). Nobody in DC that is not totally corrupt.
            Otherwise, you are SO full of shit it challenges the imagination! It was Bush-Cheney that squandered the surplus left by W. Clinton, then they proceeded to do all in their power to bankrupt the country with their phony “Iraqi WMD” BS and their unfunded wars in the Middle East. If you have no clue what you’re talking about you should avoid exposing your pure and perfect ignorance. Makes for a lot of LOL.

          123. Bimu says

            So the right is fascist/nazi….the left then have to be communist/socialist.

            Your so=called surplus is/was only on paper. The other half of that is that your so-called fascist/nazi folks wrote the budgets and legislation that made any “surplus possible. The wonderful economy was nothing more than the usual cycles of business and the good timing of the Dot.Com splurge and that bubble was bursting at the end of Billy Boy’s second term. Anybody with a brain knows that legislation takes time to take effect and show any positive economic value.

          124. rdells says

            To put in proper perspective center to left it is socialist/communist, center to right is fascist/nazi. Is that not correct? The Fascists have taken over the country. Is that not correct?

            Of course it is. Anyone with an IQ above imbecile would know that Nazi war criminals were not ALL hung. Any that could help technologically were excused, without the rigor of the allies de-nazification of Germany’s surviving citizens, and brought in to help fight communism. Von Braun, by definition, was in fact a war criminal, but was just too valuable to hang. The rest were hung or committed suicide.

            The criminals that the Vatican helped escape all went to So. America, where some of the best, and cheapest, beer comes from. Really good stuff. FBI files imply Hitler joined them there, and did NOT die in Berlin, as the Communist and the Allied propaganda of those days insisted.

            Using your logic the deficits run up by Bush is only on paper! WTF kind of logic IS that?

            Yea, Bush/Cheney sure did a perfect job running the country into near bankruptcy, didn’t they? Even worse than saint Ronnie. That half Black Man POTUS is 5 times the man the B/C pair was – combined. Why do the Fascists hate him so much? Again, obvious to anyone capable of thinking clearly.

          125. JYuma says

            Your Manly Potus, is a Indonesian citizen. His mother gave up his and her american citizenship when she Married his ADOPTED dad and her Husband per Indonesian LAW. Your Potus was RAISED a Moooslim, communist.
            He stated years ago, that if we [ USA] ever had difficult’s with mosslims that he wood stand with them [ the moooslims],
            he has done just that.
            As for him being 5 times the men that Bush or Ragan. They did not sink into a corner when we were attached by Rabid moooslims.

          126. rdells says

            So what? I was raised a Republican but rose above that rancid pile of poop when I “grew up”. Challenging your “facts” would be a waste of time. Will forever be Independent.

          127. Bimu says

            There are plenty of very concerned republicans. Why do you think the Tea Party came about ? I will give you cudos for challenging facts but would assume that means you search for and accept the truth only, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

          128. JYuma says

            An independent? As far as I am concerned all a independent is ,is a person without the mind and Balls to make up their mind. They have to have some one else tell them HOW to Think and FEEL.

          129. rdells says

            That is because you are a flippin’ Moron. Independents are the ONLY members of any constituency capable of free thought and always choose the best of the available choices running for office to represent us and make government work – for the people, as the Founders intended. Granted, those running ARE mostly all criminals. The Republican motto is “Government doesn’t work – elect us and we’ll prove it. Just send money and we’ll take the country back to the 19th century”. I do love seeing the twisted logic from you lunatic fringe – like shooting fish in a barrel.

          130. JYuma says

            Another Mindless one Spews Mindless Shite.
            Oh! By the way . You ever try to shoot fish in a barrel?
            How many did you get?

          131. Bimu says

            They didn’t shy away from their self imposed lines in the sand either !

          132. Bimu says

            You really aren’t as uneducated as you sound are you ? Have you been indoctrinated into using some newly defined dictionary with “new” modern and trendy, touchy feely definitions or should I say, redefining the word(s) into new meaning(s) ?

            Socialism and communism are ECONOMIC systems. Fascism is a political system. A “NAZI” is a socialist nationalist, particularly representing the German Era of the 1930’s and 1940’s. You will find that more times than not, socialism can exist in a “free” society but communism cannot. Under socialism, the threshold the citizens “give” to the government is minimally 40 % – local, state, federal – we are there in most every US state. There is personal property and ownership but it becomes more regulated and will almost always eventually evolve to the communist state of affairs. The communist econ system is total State ownership of property, finances, production and distribution of goods and services AS well as currency valuation.
            Rationing is usually a way of life as there is not personal freedom, no personal ownership and a stagnation of creation. All the while, to keep the ‘stuff’ moving and orderly, the totalitarian police state is in force. Thus your confusion with Fascist and Nazi’s .. Do some more reading. Do some more studying. Be careful the source as it may have been infected with PC values if written within the last 20 to 40 years. The best points of reference are from those folks who have lived through the processes. Be thankful you have the freedom to study…they didn’t ! If you want to tear down America, you better be one of the elite. Otherwise, you are dog meat table dressings, valueless flesh, a means to an ends of wealth and accommodation for the powers in the high offices with state owned machine guns and gas chambers. No life is valued, the weak will be aborted. So actually, what is going on in America, Is Democratic Party policy and platform. Do some more reading. Do some more studying. Nothing is perfect and in neat and tidy packages. Republicans have much to be ashamed of but at least they aren’t trying to sell us to Russia, China, Iran and Cuba…and a couple of other nefarious countries.

          133. rdells says

            So what is your point? Many words that do not change a fact but do deny facts.

          134. Bimu says

            Do you enjoy BS for all three meals, 24/7, 365 as I fear you are certifiably brain dead with possibility of rhyme or reason, just slime and slander. Would you like some salt, pepper or cinnamon with that serving ?

          135. rdells says

            Post something when you know something

          136. Bimu says

            Double Ditto !!

          137. Peatro Giorgio says

            rdell
            If I were so limited in knowledge as you; I’d have hung myself long ago. For you my friend are the very epitome of ignorance. Yes you are full of bluster, bullshit, enuenuedo ,with a fragment of an imagination.

          138. rdells says

            Why do you persist in waving your flag of ignorance? Imbeciles don’t know they’re imbeciles and you are the imbecile poster child.

          139. Peatro Giorgio says

            As for socialist states the actual economic amount given over to the state by the citizens is 85% . Not the 40% you have claimed . When considering local city state an federal with holdings,taxes user fees , we have reached socialist status.

          140. Bimu says

            I was taught the 40 % was regarding the the national government tax rate. Then when you add tariffs, costs of legislation, regulation that federal number is increased to more than 40 % overall. Then we must add the cost of ‘real governance – state and municipal (local, city, county) – property taxes, ad valorems, sales, school taxes, licenses, fees, fines, permits….the 60 % range is not unimaginable nor unrealistic.

            I do agree, defining socialism as an economic system, we are and have been there for a while. Free market capitalism has been dead, not just struggling, but dead for an even longer time. We have been punch drunk wealthy for so long we can’t pull our heads out our butts and no have mortgaged the future with debt.

          141. Peatro Giorgio says

            So Bush an Cheney caused the Recession . Bush an Cheney Caused the world Trade Center demolition. Bush an Cheney cause Hurricane Andrew, Bush an Chen caused the Financial Banking an housing bubble . Each of these incidents having caused The global Financial crisis. You dead from the neck up moron.
            Now I won’t attempt to claim I liked of approved of many if any of Bushes Policies. But what I won’t do is lie like you an blame the man for what it was that he had been warning congress and the nation about for 6 of the eight years he was in office. He tried to change the banking an housing regulations . But to no avail.. he warned for 6 years about the banking an housing bubble. This brought to you, You the partisan fool from a 100% Independent voter. No party afillitation. Obama is nothing more then a lying destructive dog. If I had a hunting dog like him I would have put him down on day one in the hunting fields

          142. rdells says

            True, we could use more patriots in Congress- you got THAT one right! For shits and grins, your bigotry and spelling skills DO make imbeciles look pretty smart! Impeachment? Any way you slice it, impeachment is the final fantasy for obsessive hyper-partisans.
            I’ve stopped saying “How stupid can you be?” Too many take it as a challenge. And you, sir, have stepped up to be the poster child challenger!
            What Bush did was much worse than mere lying. The Bush administration launched the most comprehensive, sophisticated, and misleading campaign of government Propaganda in American history.
            The theory? Whether or not you could fool all of the people some of the time, you could certainly scare them out of their wits. So many rancid pile of poop low achievers that still fall for it! Mind boggling – that IS diabolical.
            The true horror of George W. Bush was not mere lies, it was something even more despicable. It cut to the core of whatever humanity or basic human decency he might have claimed to possess.
            Anyone who puts party before principle and country is guilty of treason.

          143. Peatro Giorgio says

            Sure The progressive liberal run to the bigotry racism scam . Well moron . Calling a dog a dog is neither bigotry or racism . But please go ahead acuse,acuse, all you wish.. For it simply doesn’t effect me one tiny smidgen of a bit.. Morons like you never see the cliff until theyve fallen off it. Further more moron Just 1 an 1/2 years ago Obama himself retracted his accusations as to Bush having lied . Then I suppose You are much to ignorant to have read the up data version coming from the O blowhard administration. . Please continue with all the conspiracy theory crap..

          144. rdells says

            I do give you credit for an uncultivated imagination, even if you are intellectually challenged and clearly don’t spell well enough to have made it through grade school.
            The biggest intelligence failure on a GOP watch, of course, was the infamous presidential daily briefing delivered to President George W. Bush on Aug. 6, 2001, with the title “Bin Laden determined to strike in US.” That was 36 days before Sept. 11. Link to transcript: http://www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/04/10/august6.memo/
            The 9/11 attack and the intelligence failure that preceded it were in a class of their own. But it wasn’t the only terrorist attack against a U.S. target in which intelligence had been ignored.
            How about the attack on a U.S. Marine compound in Beirut, Lebanon, on Oct. 23, 1983? More than 300 people were killed, including 241 U.S. servicemen, mostly Marines. Fifty-eight French servicemen also died. It was the biggest single-day death toll for U.S. Marines since World War II in the Battle of Iwo Jima.

            So you must think that idiot presidents of the past are a good excuse for idiot sitting president to continue the cycle of destroying America? Never could figure out why idiots defend their idiot by pointing out yet another idiot. Sure Bush, as well as several presidents before him shat upon “We The People” repeatedly. So why not give obama a pass?

            Why not give obama a pass? Because he is doing more damage to this country than all the other terrorists combined. When Bush was in office, then was the time to point out Bush’s faults, but that fuck-tard is no longer in office. The fuck-tard currently in office is absolutely the worst president this country has seen to date and NOW is the time to address this problem because waiting until years after he is out of office will do nothing to stop the bullshit.

            The only reason idiots like you resort to pointing out idiots like Bush in a discussion about obama is that you are too much of a pin-head to discuss obama at face value. Your comparing the ‘right’ to Nazi’s is utter foolishness. As for fascism, it is the left that turns out dictators who feel the need to control everything, as opposed to the right, who pursues something much closer to free enterprise.

            If you got something of value to say about obama then say it, meantime shut the fuck up about idiots who haven’t been president for well over seven years. Pointing out other idiots is NOT a defense for current idiots, yourself included.

          146. rdells says

            Whoopee!! An almost actual thought from the land of unfettered imbecility. Looking forward to seeing MORE of your Hidiocy – but nobody really cares if something resembling a thought should actually escape that bony vacuum setting on top of your neck. Nobody was ever more wrong on so many topics. Will give you this, though – you ARE mind-boggling!

          147. JB Wright says

            You think the left is the government ‘for’ the people, but you have no argument to back it up. Therefore you resort to the tired old ‘Bush’ was evil attack, to cover up the fact that you/the left have nothing of substance to say

            And 2,997 dead wasn’t sufficient enough to scare the wits out of the majority. The housing and stock markets crash combined together wasn’t sufficient to scare the wits out of Americans. As well the rest of the developed world. “You freaking moron “. Try this fact on for size moron. Not but 4 &1/2 years an into the beginning of Obama’s second term. >Obama himself put to rest the LIE that was Bush Lied. The only diabolical actions to persist or the continuation of bullshit put out by the ill-informed ,an the ill-educated. Such as you. Mindless, gullible idiots. Still living an pursuing the lie That was the big Lie. It is clear to me this day that the very study preformed by Two Berkeley liberal College professors was in fact correct in their findings. Liberals ,progressives all think single dimensional.

          155. Wayne Langley says

            Then you’re good to go with Bush getting a budget with a surplus, cutting taxes and starting two illegal wars without being able to pay for it? Radical!

          156. Peatro Giorgio says

            Hey jackass . It wasn’t the tax cuts that ate away the surplus. It was a multiple of nation tragedies. Think about the financial loses just from the world Trade Center attack. Hundreds of billions of dollars gone in less then 45 minutes. Especially when considering the long term effects. Then we had Hurricane Katrina again Hundreds of billions lost over the long term..then finally the Housing an banking bubbe burst. You freaking short term memory moron.. Think for just one second in your tiny little life of stupidity. Each and on every single occasions in our nations history Whether during JFKs presidency right on through G.W. Bushes . When taxes are reduced what happens growth in the economy then what happens added revenues to t local ,state an federal government. That is not the whole story though. What happens then is the liberal progressive an socialist want added social spending . And to that end there goes the surplus. Moron.

            You’re kidding right? Surplus left by Clinton? You do realize the national debt still went up (increased) every year Clinton was in office? There has not been a decrease in the national debt since 1957. Spending has always out-paced tax receipts since then.

          161. rdells says

            No I don’t, but will do a fact check. I value integrity too much to make statements not 100% true. Later. Right now have to tend to the grill. Happy Independence Day!

            Let us all be honest, least wise with our selves. For all our nations ill’s do not lay at the footsteps of the demo-rats alone ,but also with those who have and are wearing the moniker of republican. Further more let us not pretend as if we the people had no hand in our nations demise. For it was us ,those we who voted and supported. The friads, phonies fake conservatives. Time an Time again reelecting those moderate an liberal republicans. For the very simple reason they held title to the republican name brand. Never Puting forth so much as a single moment to research review the voting records of those who we support. How is it possible for us to bitch, grieve ,grown complain as to those we elect when we haven’t acted as The Patriots we claim our selves to be. Voting does not end our duties as participating active contributing citizens . It is just one small part. How many of you rejected True Fiscal am social conservatives this past election cycle an instead voted for the so called moderate or the person now claiming to be a Fiscal conservative with moderate social conservative leanings. Yea take a long hard look in the mirror. For it is you. Who is very much to blame.

          165. James Maxwell says

            I must admit it would be nice if politics were clear line of division, but I do not
            think you could actually blame either party for he chicanery we are seeing
            currently in politics in Washington D.C. There are many good men and women
            from both parties but they are controlled by the Elitist of both and the people
            who fund the campaigns for their own personal greed and wealth. They
            thrown crumbs to the voters to calm the masses from a general uprising and
            removal of all the criminals in office. The leadership of both parties are lying
            to us constantly and the playing for their own personal gain and profit at our
            expense. We have an individual in the Oval office who is as corrupt as any
            we have ever seen since the founding of our nation, they have never shown
            actual proof that his is qualified to sit in the Oval Office or hold office as
            President. If the proof is out there they are doing all they can to keep it hidden
            as much of his history is and lawyers keep it under cover so that we the People
            will ever see it in our life time. That is a RED FLAG that there is corruption and
            criminal action going on by our government and elected officials.
            The National Debt, the destruction of the coal and petroleum industries
            the utter lied about Climat Change,the bringin in of those who are our
            sworn enemies from muslim nations, the rise of terrorism from radical
            islamc members in our own country and the list is endless.

          You are really stupid are you not? When the Founding Fathers created this government, they created 3 separate but EQUAL branches (must make your balls bunch up right?) These are the Executive, Judicial and Legislative branches.

          So..moron Congress doesn’t get to keep a president in tow…The president is equal to Senators and Congressman except when it comes to declarations of war, which the President of the U.S. has the right to declare and if he so chooses, with the approval of Congress.

          4. Dave McFarland says

            Eleanore, once again, your lack of understanding is not enough to light your way. Congress is oversight. The Muslim President violates The US Constitution because he believes it is a Christian document, not a moral document. Therefore, he feels he can violate it any time he wishes. He should be tried for treason.

          There are very few true men in either house that have the guts to tell the Potus and his puppets to listen to the citizens of this country.

          Posner should be investigated for his disgust of the Constitution and I am sure his inability to follow it in adjudicating a case and there should st least be sanctioned by his peers

          1. Tiger says

            I listened to the congressional hearings on the Iran Deal, the illegals, the refugees and yesterday the congressional hearing on terrorism. Where witnesses clearly told congress what O is doing and how we have Muslim Brotherhood in high positions in Homeland Security, named the two Muslim congressmen as attending Muslim Brotherhood meetings and giving money to sponsor terrorism, how CAIR works and how they counsel O on Muslim matters, who they are you name it.

            So my friend they know everything and still nobody touches the BBass from the loins of Satan.

            Obama,
            who refers to himself as: “A man of Africa”,
            is precisely the type of ‘divided loyalties” individual that our Founders
            attempted to prohibit from ascendancy to the presidency when they constructed
            our Constitution.

          2. songstress250 says

            Excellent, Excellent synopsis, David. The Really Sad thing is that the Majority of Americans will not take the time to research Anything that might burst their bubbles. And using foul language and insults only shuts down a possibly intelligent conversation. Anger and knee-jerk reactions are Our problems. I haven’t heard Anything posted regarding the Convention of States. It’s a Right that our Constitution allows. If you Really want to do something that could Shake this administration, and mostly the resident and probable new resident of our White House, look into it and get yourself and others involved. My state is one of only Four of The United States who have voted and passed a state declaration to give most of the power back to the states in this country. Our movement includes talk show hosts, authors, some conservative celebrities who are too afraid to go public for fear of the Leftist Backlash against Anyone who speaks against this dangerous White House resident or his political (foreign and domestic) cronies. More and more people are joining us. Does it make sense that less than .3% of our population is shoving gay marriage and transgender bathrooms down our throats? Where are We, The Majority? Bickering. We will not succeed in changing this political climate, let alone Literally saving our country, unless we ALL say, “Enough is Enough!” Too many of us are passive…that’s how we ended up in this mess in the first place. I Pray more people will get Active.

          3. Freedom Rules says

            Islam, by law, is prohibited from US immigration
            The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and
            nationality for the United States. That act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress
            regarding the immigration of Aliens to the US and remains in effect today. Among the many issues it covers, one in particular,
            found in Chapter 2 Section 212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow
            the government of the United States by “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.” This, by its very definition, rules out
            Islamic immigration to the United States, but this law is being ignored by the White House.Islamic immigration to the US would
            be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law and the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam, which is
            antithetical to the US government, the Constitution, and to the Republic. All Muslims who attest that the Koran is their life’s
            guiding principal subscribe to submission to Islam and its form of government. Now the political correct crowd would say that
            Islamists cannot be prohibited from entering the US because Islam is a religion. Whether it is a religion is immaterial because
            the law states that Aliens who are affiliated with any “organization” that advocates the overthrow of our government are prohibited….

            I’d definitely add MAO’bama is certainly anti-America as Founded hy men and woman who’s toenail clippings he couldn’t see over. Because you’d be a flea next to GIANTS in GREATNESS ~!

        2. Eleanore Whitaker says

          But but but…President Obama didn’t need the SC like Bush did to decide IF he was president. President Obama didn’t have to have CHADS counted in his brother’s state like Bush did…Sorry lil Dixiebelle..Your right wing bigotry is going to cost you. We owe your states not one dime of support for bigots and racists. Oh gee…guess you’ll have to go back to your whoring business right?

          1. James Watt says

            Eleanore, Your abusive, intolerant language toward a fellow citizen tells me what your values are, and they clearly identify you as the true bigot, racist, and any other hateful term you use against others. When you point one finger at others, you have three pointing back at you! Take the beam out of your own eye before you criticize a splinter in others. If you can’t be civil in your verbiage, stay out of controversial conversations online.

          2. Eleanore Whitaker says

            I have NO value for deliberately “ignernt” freeloaders whose states can’t make it without taxes our states end up supporting them with. I hate all bigots and you are one of them since you support their bigotry.

            You aren’t an American and you can stow that act that you are so superior. It’s not impressing anyone but you.

          3. James Watt says

            Eleanore, Now your emotions are now so out of control that you are losing control of your typing (ignernt instead of ignorant). You need to examine the distress and harm of your extremist mental state, and seek professional help, lest you do damage to others beyond yourself that you will regret.

          4. VanceJ says

            A redneck, a preacher, and a liberal are traveling in a car when it breaks down in front of a farm. They ask the farmer if they could spend the night. The farmer said, “Sure, but my guest room only has room for two. One of you will have to sleep in the barn. The preacher says, “I don’t mind being with God’s animals. I will sleep in the barn.” An hour later, there’s a knock on the guest room door. It’s the preacher. He says, “I can’t stand that noisy chicken. Could I switch with one of you?” The redneck says, “There are always loud animals back in Alabama. I can take it.” An hour later, there’s a knock on the guest room door. It’s the redneck. He says, “I can’t stand that smelly cow! Could I switch with one of you?” The liberal says, “Well, I guess that leaves me.” An hour later, there’s a knock on the door. It’s the chicken and the cow.

        Wasn’t it also part of the oath Gowdy swore to when he used false information in the Benghazi hearing. You righties can’t stand it that the Benghazi Get Big Bad Hillary case flopped like all of your so called scandals you try to pull off do. Look in your own dirty backyards. You more Republican scoundrels, DeLay, Gingrich, Nixon, Reagan and Bush ’41, morons like Bush ’43 and Cheney and covetous asshats like the Koch paid Ryan, Issa, Cotton and Cruz. Clean up your own filthy backyards before you look over the fence.

        1. Marine1962 says

          You should really clean up your Democrats messes before you start accusing the Republicans about anything…and since you started it…LBJ, Carter, The Sleezy Clintons and the worst of all Obama..The Democrat Socialists have just as many and more Racists and Bigots who are helping to destroy America…

          1. Eleanore Whitaker says

            There are NO Democratic “messes.” We always leave that to the GOP dipshits. So…I see you need a refresher course in GOP messes?

            Warren Harding, The TeaPot Dome Scandal – His Secy of the Interior tries to sell off public lands to the oil boys for pennies on the dollar. He goes to prison.

            Hoover? The Infamous Hoover for whom the Great Depression is always his legacy. Moving on…Then, there’s your WaterGate Burglar….Nixon. You know? The one GOP president that still eats your hearts out?

            From WaterGate to Reagan selling arms to the Contras. Nice work too…Sent Bush, his then VP to make a deal to delay the release of the hostages until after Reagan was re-elected. Do you liars ever stop the sneaky, underhanded BS?

            But. it gets better…there’s your one term “Kinder Gentler Bush ’41 who couldn’t even get a second term due to his continuance of Reagan’s 2nd term recession and his own.

            But the best? You asshats missing how the frontman Bush’ 43 was supposed to “look like your president” when you were Cheneyed from the back room.

            Try again and stop masturbating so often…your brain is malfunctioning.

        2. Linda Abernathy says

          I find it more humorous that we’re all out to get the big bad Hillary and its working or you wouldn’t be in here. The Clinton body count 49-50 people have died (although I never heard of suicide victim getting shot in the back of the head, the secret service reports of her bipolar temperment, and lastly looking those families in the eyes and lying to them meanwhile trying to cover her tracks so the truth is not revealed. And of course the emails. Where is Hillary now? And why do you trust someone like this? If if she did ¼ of the things accused of isn’t that enough to say I don’t want someone like that in office? I’d say she is as close to hell as she can be without being there.

        3. VanceJ says

          You know, I have seen a lot of DING BATS in my time but you take the cake with you ignorance.!!!! By the way Tom DeLay was exonerated, it was a political witch hunt.

        4. pineapple says

          As a 27 year old attorney for the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate investigation, Hillary Rodham was fired by her supervisor, lifelong Democrat Jerry Zeifman.

          When asked why Hillary Rodham was fired, “Because she was a liar.” Zeifman said in an interview.” She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee, and the rules of confidentially.”

        Newbies like Obama and think they know more and what is best that have no
        regard for the Constitution. Obama knows more then you talking heads
        do. OB is Born Muslim, Raised Muslim, Will die Muslim.

        He is a Constitutional Attorney. He knows what he can and cannot do. He pushed the system and NO ONE STOPED him.
        The parties that are in Oversite JUST sat on their ass and let it go to where
        he is now committing TREASNOUS ACT AGAINST THE CONSTITUTION, THE BILL OF RIGHTS
        and moving dollars around VA’s, Soc.Sec.. to enable criminal terrorist to
        freely
        enter into our country… That keeps everyone now focused on. OB now
        is focus on VACATION. WHY? Game plan time. Some Rest and maybe
        unexpected
        old acquaintances thy just happened across.

        Game? How about Game A. OB to assure
        HRC no go jail, Makes President, Seats OB to Supreme Court HRC Starts

        Full scale gun ban towards

        That is why the old white guys wrote the U.S, Constitution, to protect all U.S. Citizens from a deceitful wannabe all power dictator without control of their whims from hell ! This judge !

    2. Valor says

      What you don’t realize our government doesn’t give a damn about what American citizens want. This has not been a government of the people, by the people, and for the people in a long time. It is a government of the entrenched politicians, by unaccountable bureaucrats who actually write the laws, and for the elite ruling class that is above the law.

    3. SouthernPatriot says

      Posner is not a judge, he is a globalist, who wants obscure laws from other countries to govern U.S. judges. Indeed as you have posted, he is a traitor and violates the law which is is sworn to uphold.

      1. meangreenMarine says

        You’re absolutely correct! It’s a Judge’s task to apply the law as written, not to develop their own
        laws based on their current attitude! You swore an Oath to uphold the Constitution, a set of laws that has held this Country together for over 200 years! Now you think you’re better than our Founding Fathers!
        You are one pompous individual!

    4. Wildeagleone says

  6. robert zuidema says

    I feel pity for the coming generation that may not even know about our constitution! This “judge”? should be banned from the bench and disbarred from practising law. As several people pointed out, he took an oath and now is negating the substance of that oath. TREASONOUS!!!!

    1. Philip Duckworth says

      It seems America is well on its way to becoming some sort of Commie Dictatorship

    A judge who would say this should be removed now..

  8. Mary Shultz says

    This judge needs to be removed from his position, he has violated his oath of office. It does not matter what the culture or the technology of any century becomes. What matters is what happens to ALL of its citizens regardless of their individual status., or relation to one another. ty Toledo Sgt

    A conservative Judge that doesn’t have his head up his ass! Hallelujah, God bless him.

    1. mtman2 says

      He was obviously NOT a Conservative.
      So then George Washington and the other Founders had “their heads up their ass” according to your Far-Left wing-nut moralizing of America as evil-!!!
      Compared to what and who has done more for this sorry world = nobody ~!

      1. rdells says

        “He was obviously NOT a Conservative”. Why do you think that? Appointed by Reagan and obviously HAS evolved from the days of the 18th century, 250 years ago, Granted that IS quite unusual for conservatives.
        “So then George Washington and the other Founders had their heads up their ass” If you believe that you need more help than you’ll get here.
        “Compared to what and who has done more for this sorry world = nobody ~!” Clearly you are not Christian, either – the Founders weren’t. Check it out if that shocks you.

        1. mtman2 says

          Hah, “evolved” into what? Something new under the sun? Yeah- again into what?
          If you have understanding of what was; your lost as to what now is and you are in derision.

          I don’t need your help, you made the statement and words have meanings.
          Tho with you revisionist’s they mean whatever you want them to, like a spoiled selfish child.
          Relative only to your short sighted desires and shallow concepts.

          America as Founded is an idea that was fought for against statism under militaristic monarchial control having successfully advanced and endured for 240yrs under that idea as in OUR 3-Founding documents.
          Whereas France has had multiple constitutions(15) as have most all other nations, NONE close to the effective growth and strength of the USA.

          Reagan got that very well. Evidently Posner has fallen off the wagon that brought us this far, which is beyond the possibility of all the rest of the worlds nation’s put together. Which is the big plan called Globalism attempting to trump the unique nationalist ideals of Americanism.

          Laughable on it’s face as it would require a ironfisted statist oligarchial power structure of a massive ‘Big Brother’ and very limited rights and Liberty, controlled by far away elites and multitudenous henchmen to bring populations into submission.

          So your big and better plan is exactly what- rdells~?

          1. rdells says

            Globalism is a disaster, no debate.
            Unfortunately, no project or initiative is perfectly planned and corrections are made along the way by those of sufficient intelligence to recognize the need. Blindly ignoring the need for change is just not smart. I recommend John Cleese’ 58 second video: https://youtu.be/wvVPdyYeaQU

            No, it is NOT. I steer clear of ALL propaganda. The worst of the lot is “News for Dumb Fux” Farce and Bullshit. Even skip that when channel surfing. Taking in reality and thinking for oneself is how you maintain sanity.

          4. mtman2 says

          5. rdells says

            Apologies for taking so long getting back!

            Just what are you on? Not that I really care, that is your business.

            I do have an important plea, however. Please do not commit suicide! You really WILL be missed.

          6. mtman2 says

            “I am on” – the brilliance of the Founders on the truth of human nature and culminated wisdom of mankinds long dark history past = not the pathetic toadie-dorks in the drive-media, in the pocket of the Globalists via the Far-Left socialist/statist Democrats+mealy mouthed RINO’s.

            Equivocating rdells = YOU- never answered my question that is necessary to recognize your position here. Your replies so far seem point to a embrace socialistic/statism and smacks anti-Constitutional in nature-!
            I only hope to be wrong here at guessing- only you can clarify ~!

          7. rdells says

            If I correctly decipher “that” as “propaganda free” it is simply my neck of the woods. The first good people that settled here were socialists. That is how they managed to survive – helping one-another through the bad times. Comparing the two most evil people to ever walk the earth Stalin was #1, Hitler #2. I have my theories on why these “opposites” were put here at the same time. Is Fascism more evil than socialism? (note lower case “s”). Hell yes. Yea, it IS cast in a negative light by those scheming to steal the funds that cover social benefits like Social Security (bought and paid for, not a gift) and help for the helpless. Greed, hate, and anger are the traits of Psychopaths.
            Hope you take my previous advice.

          8. mtman2 says

            Pilgrims+Puritans were dedicated followers of Christ and Scripture which is why they fled the king of England and the State Church control.
            Which is why the 1st two parts of OUR First Amendment states as it does.
            The two greatest commandments = “Love God with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself”

            SocSec was a Ponsi scheme by the Globalist socialist/statist FDR- laughed all the way to the banks they owned and being the Federal Reserve = owned them all “WE the People ” were put up as collateral slave guarantors by FDR under the Bretton Woods Agreement along with signing onto a U.N. on U.S. soil to the IMF controlled by the World Bank and their branch office the Federal Reserve. The U.N. is there oyster and was put here to eventually take over the USA from tbe inside out while manipulating tbe rest of the world.

            I do my own thinking and research- that’s how I know what I know as can say it well and accurately.

            Hitler was the direct result of the interference by Woodrow Wilson+Dems(socialist”s who established the illegal FED) which caused the Treaty of Versaille, breaking the Wiemar Republic as France+Britain then saked+raped Germany for 12 yrs “War Reparations”.

            The Globalist bankers set up and formed Lenin’s Bolshevik’s which Gen Luddendorf would have crushed them, had the idiot Democrat Wilson not entered WWI which was non of OUR business and the opposite of what he promised to get elected again. The Globalist want communism to counter American power and influence. Imagine there never was communism- how would the world look with the USA as the role model for “freedoms under Liberty”

            The federal gubmint has no Constitutional business other than international policy of the united Sovereign States will, trade agreements and commerce. Now the top heavy behomoth is the largest employer in the U.S. wasting 100’s of billions a year with bloated inificiency- with big pay, benefits and large early retirement; all for being an un-elected bureacratic parasite- illegally ruling over us.

            My advice to folks is give due-dilgence to study 1st your all 17 pages of the 3-Founding documents, Founders writings(at least read hundreds), Scripture and all the older history books and writings before the socialist’s infiltrated the USA, esp since 1979 w/Carter signing in FedEd over OUR. Schools = now “Commie-Core”. That the USA exists is a miracle yet it takes diligent citizens who’ve been asleep to maintain it properly.

            The demerits , congress, the Indonesian that sits in the White House. Has over the last 50 years, made laws, rules and regulations, that have just about made the Constitution nun and void.
            Maybe, just Maybe.
            The man is Correct.
            For the government and the LEADERS from Booth parts that are in control of this country have NOT fallowed the Constitution for the last 50 years. Especially in the last 9. As the demorats controlled Congress from 2007 until 2010.
            Then the Spinless republicans have done their part of ignoring , passing un-constitutional laws.

            Now the weak minded will vote for hellary. But the Weak Minded of the Socialist Democrats and the Weaker ,Cowardly Minded of the Republicans.

    “Posner wrote. “Eighteenth-century guys, however smart, could not foresee the culture, technology, etc. of the 21st century. Which means that the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the post-Civil War amendments (including the 14th), do not speak to today.”
    I agree.. how could they have known that the second amendment would be interpreted to read that the common citizen could own military equipment other than the musket? Automatic rifles, maybe a bazooka or two, hand grenades are a given, have to have couple of those for those BIG deer. A couple of drones… hell why not your very own fighter jet or bomber??? Where does it end?? Air craft carrier? Battleship?? Where is the line that says you cannot buy these type of weapons?

        Study: Are Liberals Smarter Than Conservatives?
        So are liberals smarter? Kanazawa quotes from two surveys that support the hypothesis that liberals are more intelligent. One is the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health, which is often called Add Health. The other is the General Social Survey (GSS). The Add Health study shows that the mean IQ of adolescents who identify themselves as “very liberal” is 106, compared with a mean IQ of 95 for those calling themselves “very conservative.” The Add Health study is huge — more than 20,000 kids — and this difference is highly statistically significant.

    I guess the NRA is in charge of Population Control…
    This woman shot and killed her two daughters in front of her husband. Some people clearly do not need guns. This woman is a very good example. The children did not survive. Wild eyed NRA loving
    shooter was shot by police when she would not drop the semi automatic. The young girls were already dead and this just proves over and over that the second amendment needs revisiting.

    ( With a mentality like she had… the low information.. the fear that she heard daily about how Obama was coming for your guns….. FOR 7 YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wonder where she lived?????? A blue state… a red state…. middle of the country….. North….. or will you put your money on a Southern state like me??)

    1. mtman2 says

      This “woman” was deranged, ie- nuts/crazy/certifiable/insane/had all the screws loose.
      Once someone goes off the beam they can do all sorts of horrible things.
      Her husband must have seen it coming as well as the children, neighbors, friends, relatives, co-workers, local LEO’s = she needed help and no one cared enough to give it or get it for her.
      She could’ve got behind the wheel drove thru crowds, burned houses+/or bldgs down, made a bomb, got any weapon and killed lots of folks whether an axe, machete, knife, gun, golf club or rock. Hammers kill 5 times the Americans a year than rifles do- got one in the house?
      She could have done far worse before being stopped. As usual in these similar cases- everybody knew help was needed but not followed thru with.
      Mental illness has an entire professional system to aid people to recover +/or live better lives.
      Even then it is not guaranteed to prevent tragedy and tragic outcomes = there’s no perfect world or answers.

      Several years back-DC cops shot and killed that young woman in her car w/infant watching- because she “posed a threat” by driving off to evade them. She needed help prior and no one stepped up.
      Banning alcohol, drugs and crime really worked well, eh? Obviously NOT…same for the 2nd-Amendment.

      In fact firearms prevent crimes 2.5+ million times a year, most by just showing or cocking a gun; occasionally by having to use it which sometimes ends in wounding or death of criminals, oh well- this is the “unalienable” right “WE the People” have for good reasons = against rape, robbery, theft, murders + gubmint tyranny as #1…

        1. mtman2 says

          Whoopsie- Left out baseball bats, tire irons, crowbars, clubs, fists/feet+hands, other blunt objects, groundpounded – FBI reports most each more than murdered with a wrongfully called “ASSAULT-RIFLE” – you do the math. Add knives and cutting instruments to that and it doubles that figure again.
          Murder period has steadily decreased 1/3 from 1976 to now.

          It’s the ridiculous concept of “GUN FREE ZONES” that draws crazies and terrorists and has created a new style of crime hardly ever seen prior, as people that may be armed(cowardly would be killers) are left alone. But a sign saying “Eats Here” draws hungry folks- so does “Gun Free” to wanna be killers.

          The guns they use will be gotten for such deeds the same as illegal drugs are, and alcohol was during prohibition = the “black market” or simply stolen as did Adam Lanza, after murdering tbe owner(his own mother).
          Whatever firearm is used by a killer, it’s a firearm that ends it. Either sooner = as in seconds or later like in Orlando- 3 hours. Seconds save lives like the one in Texas were bothe highly armed terrorist went to kill 200 and were shot dead by a pistol by a quick thinker and good head shots as the terrorist’s were wearing body armor.

          Again, at least 2.5+million times a year guns prevent crimes by the citizen being armed.
          Famous actress Kelley McGillis wished she had been after being assaulted in her own home.
          Now she may not have had to shoot her assailent but having the weapon aimed should have been enough for someone in their right mind to stop- or else Bang = would be victim insuring no they won’t.

          Attempting to take citizens unalienable Right to defend themselves away is BS and unConstitutional ~!

          1. gotabgood says

            Once again… no matter from which direction you look at it… it is still BS!

  15. luckyg53 says

    This judge and any judge that agrees with this judge should be removed immediately as being unfit to being able to fulfill their oaths of office to defend and protect the constitution of the united states.

    1. mtman2 says

      Yes, however the crime they engendered by their speech must then be addressed legally ~!

  16. Tiger says

    With O and all the Socialist/Communist in charge this comes as no surprise.

    Scalia died suddenly, a pillow attacked him, the Libertarian candidate dies suddenly and now someone who was to testify against Hillary dies, everyday in every way we “The People” are witnessing a rogue POTUS who just told congress they don’t tell him what to do and he isn’t talking about Benghazi when according to our Constitution yes he does answer to congress, The Constitution has been null and void since the day O stepped into “The People’s House” and nobody has done anything about it.

    Surely we are going to be living in Stalin’s Russia sooner than later if Trump not voted in.

      Quite an impressive list! Pass this on. Let the public become aware of what happens to friends of the Clintons!

      1. Tiger says

        Will do but most of my followers and friends are right on this and know it. What needs to happen is Trump needs to post it on a Billboard.

  17. Mynickelsworth says

    It may be some form of dementia but he needs to be removed from the Bench immediately. The Constitution is the law of the land and if he feel that way he should be removed from serving as an attorney for anything or anybody in the USA.
    Most, if not all, the country’s problems come about because we ignore the Constitution. E.g. our education system is producing idiots, many can’t write and most can read but have no idea what it means and cannot tell you what the Author said..,that comes directly from a substitute teacher who finally gave up.
    That is because we allowed the Federal Government to get their finger in the pie. Now it is only a brainwashing operation to produce dodos who will accept Socialism or what ever comes out of Washington. Our Medicine is killing over 106 thousand a year because it is ‘controlled’ by the federal government.

    We have a President who ignores it and does what he pleases. We have a Supreme Court made up of some who are in the same pile with the judge. AND we have a Congress with no backbone, guts or any thing else…all they want is their fancy pay, retirement plan, free medical care for life and to keep their power –Most of their time is used to insure they can get reelected, NOT to do the law making job they were sent there to do.

  18. LittleMoose says

    Until America changes it or replaces it, the Constitution is still the supreme law of the land and must be treated as such.

    1. pineapple says

      There are ways to amend the Constitution, but until that happens, we should abide by it as it is written.

  19. the beav says

    There are ways to amend the constitution legally those sorry things sitting on the supremely SORRY court apparently do not care what the constitution says they only search for ways to inject their personal opinions illegally into the constitution these so called lawyers ie judges are ILLEGALY ROBBNG THE AMERICAN PEOPLE OF THIER CONSTITUTION with their interpertations ! Are these Judges Selling their opinions as I feel a lot of our congressmen and senators are OUR CONSTITUTION IS NOT DEAD I Feel our so called goverment officials supreme court and all are rotten to the core

  20. malimut@msn.com says

    the judge has lost his mind……………………………..

  21. mtman2 says

    And this is deference too……..???
    1-Monarchial tyrants
    2-Full democratic tyranny
    3-Socialist/communist tyranny
    4-Elitist-statist-oligarchial tyranny
    5-A combo of the above tyranny

  22. joe says

    That guy should be strung up by the neck for treason how the hell does a piece of chit like that keep his job

  23. Susan Short says

    This judge must have been appointed by Obama, because he doesn’t pay any attention to the Constitution either!

  24. Jordan48 says

    This moron jurist has been drinking from the well of stupidity. The fact is that even though our culture has been improved by newer forms of technology, including telecommunications and advancements in transportation, the real nature of mankind remains virtually unchanged unless you consider the fact that we are seeing a return to the acceptance of paganism, barbarism, and immortality that was very pervasive during the days of Sodom and Gomorrah.

    The U S Constitution deals with these human inadequacies and perversions. It effectively preserves the rights of the individual. It guarantees the fundamental rights of all men and acts as a wall against tyrannical rulers who seek to subjugate the masses. It guarantees and protects property rights and guarantees due process of law for all men if it’s precepts are adhered to by a society of men.

    This maverick, this arrogant Jackal would have us abandon one of the most important set of rules devised by mortal men since Moses received the ten commandments. Since the apostle Paul penned the greater part of the New Testament, and since the printing of the Holy Bible at the instruction of King James. To abandon the U S Constitution is paramount to opening the door to our homes and our lives to the wild beasts of the fields, but worse, for depraved rulers are far more craven and merciless than certain species of animals.

  25. Leonard Mintz says

    He should choose between resignation or impeachment!

  26. Jeffrey Cahoon says

    This Judge should be hanged for treason! Who in hell does he think he is? Whoever he is, he CANNOT be a American! THROW HIM OFF WHATEVER BENCH HE SITS ON! What a dumbass!

  27. jreg9304 says

    this liberal fuc-er should be dragged out in public and castrated..

  28. Valor says

    America has not been governed by the Constitution for a long, long time. America has morphed into a nation ruled by political correctness. For all practical purposes the Constitution is given lip service by self serving politicians of both parties who loath the limitations it would have imposed on their quest for power.

  29. Edward A Rhodes Rhodes says

    The constitution is the essence of America, as our constitution goes so goes America. I’d much rather see Posner and ALL like him to GO!

  30. martindeeberry says

    Oh great another Leftist Wingnut that states his opinion as if its the gospel and we all are to just throw up our hands and say, “Okay”!

    The Liberal War Machine would like nothing more than to trash the Constitution because this document is like the crucifex to a vampire. It is the only thing prohibiting the Left from initiating their rule of law which would allow anything and everything with no regulation or moral fiber.

  31. Gerald A. Reason says

    This judge has clearly violated his oath of office by renouncing the Constitution he has sworn to uphold. For this reason, this judge, being in violation of his oath of office, should be impeached and removed from the bench. This would send a message that we are still a nation governed by a written Constitution and, unless that is changed by the process prescribed in it, is still the law of the land. We are seeing the results of Judges who refuse to keep the Constitution and it is resulting in a major decline in the moral and political structure of this nation.

  32. ChiefBoring says

    Judge Posner should resign in shame! The Constitution is the helm of our Ship of State. Without it we are lost at sea!

  33. skipsart says

    Hard, if not impossible to believe this clown was appointed by Reagan.

  34. pappy450 says

    I agree, Dale,

    Opining like that is TREASON. His “Oath of Office” was INDEED VIOLATED, so, FOR ONCE…administer the proper punishment. Do it NOW before other Liberal a-holes try to follow suit. If this “judge” gets away with such language, others will follow..

  35. gotcha1 says

    Questions should arise about Posner’s objective judgement from his comments. He is not competent to do this job and should removed as our beloved president/dictator whom is not competent and should be removed as well! This government has taken on the role of sole director of all Americans. We need an Article 5 Convention of the States to contract this huge mess. Posner is just one of many in our government that judge and write laws that benefit themselves not the American public. Time for a complete change in Washington before we lose it to these devils. This travels deeper with the Democrats and Republicans voting as one party, the Political Party. This is why Trump has accrued so much support because he is not one of them. The American Public has had enough of this crap. We better see the light before it is too late.

  36. Milton W. Lowe says

    We need to get all these no constitution, no good judges off the bench…TRUMP 2016 & 2020 MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! WHY DO THESE JUDGES TAKE THE OATH?

  37. takeitbacknow42012 says

    Throw him out. Throw Obama and Hillary out. Also the Congress and some members of the Supreme Court because they do not uphold OUR CONSTITUTION. They all swore they would. It’s there for a reason. . . To Protect Americans!

  38. Jack L. Feasel says

    Of course he doesn’t think the Constitution is worth studying, that way government can do what the well please.
    With the Constitution gone the rule of law is gone civility is lost, sense this very important document the (Constitution) was constructed and based on biblical principles is a constant reminder that there is a supreme power greater than government to which we are accountable it is the desire of the immoral godless individuals to get rid of any reminder of the fact we are endowed by our Creator God with certain inalienable rights. These are the rights this administration, along with Islam, wish to remove from us, the American people.
    It is the goal of Islam to replace Constitutional law with Sharia law and this is why it is so important to place Constitutional Supreme Court Justices in our highest court.
    We must resist this effort to destroy the Constitution at every possible opportunity, people must be encouraged to understand what it will me to destroy the Constitution and our Democratic-Republic form of government. We must help to educate this generation of people so that it will not be lost, it is for sure the present educational system will not do that.
    I could say a lot more on this subject but with what is here I hope there are enough intelligent people that read this can see what we as American people are facing. It is no small thing and well worth fighting for to maintain stability in our beloved country. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

    1. pineapple says

      Who needs the Constitution when we have executive orders?

      1. Jack L. Feasel says

        If I recall from my early Constitutional studies an Executive order from the President was only to take place in times of crisis and not to be used blatantly just because Congress doesn’t agree to let him have his way like a spoiled child. This kind of behavior is antithetical to the Constitutional government that we have. This shows me, personally, That Obama lacks the wisdom and understanding to be President. His heart is not truly American and cannot be when his loyalty is, quite obviously, to Islam.

  39. Paul Dean says

    What a fucking pos!Feel free to leave our country and go to a nice socialist utopia where you will not be hindered by a musty, outdated old Consitiution or any silly old Bill of Rights. Better yet, HANG yourself.

  40. Eleanore Whitaker says

    Another right wing judge on the take? Sure…prevent Americans from knowing their Constitutional rights…How very dictatorial do the right plan to get? Stop studies of the U.S. Constitution…right up their dumbass allies. Wonder how much the Republicans on the take and the right wingers are paying this so called “judge?”

    Right now, the Tea Party attack dogs, Chaffetz R-UT and those other two hicks Cotton and Gowdy ALL broke Constitutional law by presenting evidence in a federal investigation they KNEW was false or they doctored. Now they are about to end up in jail. Not to mention both Trump and Sanders on the hook for violations to the FEC regulations and for Trump defrauding his own employees and laundering money to terrorists. So you bet right now they want to trash the Constitution. Pig brains usually do.

    1. K J Van Kirk says

      Eleanore… Go take your Prozac.

      1. Eleanore Whitaker says

        Don’t you old farts ever stop with meds, Prozac, kool aid BS? You don’t have a very extensive arsenal do you shitforbrains?

        1. richiediana says

          Coming for YOU!!!!

    2. Austinniceguy says

      You are a delusional moron and it is oozing out of every pore in your worthless, useless existence.

      1. Eleanore Whitaker says

        Figures a right winger who lives in La La land you create thinks everyone who is sane and rational is delusional. So tell us assfukker, why is it you jerkoffs of the right hate facts?

        You want wants on Trumps 151 and counting lawsuits? Go to the Justice Dept. or the FinCEN U.S. Treasury.gov …Then eat your heart out shitforbrains. You can’t have your way and it is just eating you right wing turds alive.

        1. Austinniceguy says

          Blah, blah, blah. You’re nothing but a lying, delusional. worthless, useless, uneducated, low IQ, filthy gash with a $hit filled head.

          1. Eleanore Whitaker says

            Got your chaps in a bunch? Or are those spurs sticking too far up your phony swaggering, drawling butt? Best secede like your Texits want to. We won’t miss you Texans. You cost the rest of the states too much much anyway.

            Think about it. You become a foreign country and no more of our federal tax dollars slathering your Big Oil Barons in wealth. No more pipelines for you to dig in other people’s states. And best of all? You get that wall you wanted to protect Texas…all around your state. Whooooopppppeeeee Time to get rid of the worst freeloader state in the union. And won’t our pollution costs go down a couple of hundred billion too…Yesssir…Get rid of Texas and you just know they’ll be shunned from ever entering the USA again as citizens.

          2. Austinniceguy says

            More blah, blah, blah and not worth wasting my time reading. The fact is that you have a shit filled head.

          3. Eleanore Whitaker says

            awww…Is the phony cowboy trapped between truth and facts again? The state you live is so corrupt that you cowboys eat horse dung for breakfast.

            Don’t ask why sane people can’t stand you jerkoffs of the right. You are mentally deranged and like most mentally ill individuals can’t stand reality, truth, facts or the idea you can’t have it all your way. So prickface…get your butt off to your job at the oil rig. I hear your oil soaked lungs aren’t diseased enough.

        2. richiediana says

          I’m coming for you Whitaker!! You will be taken and tattooed red white and BLUE !!!

          1. Eleanore Whitaker says

            oooooooh….I am sooooooooooooo skeeeeeeeered! Shove it jerk boy. If that’s a threat, you’re pretty damn stupid to post it so publicly.

            As usual, a man with a big mouth, no action, no balls and his dick always in his hand.

    3. Ed R says

      Apparently Ms Whitaker knows all. We can tell from her writings about her intellectual learnings and I am sure that she has evidence to backup her claim that Gowdy presented false evidence in his report. Sounds like she might have even gone to Harvard.

      1. Eleanore Whitaker says

        Yes. Ms. Whitaker does know all. I make it a point to gather as much UNBIASED information and proof of what I post. You righties just make up BS as you go.

        Gowdy presented emails at the Benghazi investigation he admitted he doctored. Here is the headline from the Huffington Post..not exactly a liberal media source. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/hillary-clinton-benghazi-investigation_us_561ef9eae4b0c5a1ce62037e

        Gowdy admitted he doctored the emails. It figures jackass right wingers wouldn’t even believe one of their own.

  41. Austinniceguy says

    He’s following Ronnie into a world of delusion…..but, Ronnie had an excise, this moron is just plain stupid.

  42. searchingfortruth says

    Posner might be just senile, but there are more and more politicized judges appointed. This is something that Judge Robert Bork warned us against in his “The Tempting of America”. Well, it happened. Soon after she was appointed by Clinton, Judge Ginsburg openly stated that her role was to change the Constitution to what she wants it to be. She was an ACLU lawyer of no particular distinction. The four Democrat appointees have consistently voted to change the Constitution by judicial action.

  43. junkmailbin says

    Our founding documents are the foundation for our entire legal system. They are still applicable today. The language is clear and concise.
    The liberals want to junk it because it stops them from going into freestyle laws and privileges /
    We have many morons that ignore the easily understandable language. How many meanings are there to ” shall not infringe upon, or congress shall not establish”.
    I have studied the language and no where is there verbiage that specifies that there is a right to queer marriage or the government taking anyone’s weapons.
    When the government starts on the road to take the citizens weapons, hey are on the path of servitude and the government needs to be put in check. This is why we have the 2nd Amendment

  44. David in MA says

    “Which means that the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the post-Civil War amendments (including the 14th), do not speak to today.””
    I SAY IT SPEAKS MORE TODAY THAN EVER!

  45. Danny says

    Impeachment is the only answer for this non-American lowlife socialist idiot of the shadow government meant to destroy our country. Over 200 years of proven effectiveness and this traitor states its too old. What dung hole did he crawl out of.

    1. Eleanore Whitaker says

      Money money money…that’s all they care about. You can buy politicians, buy government and now even law.

  46. PBHayes says

    Posner has pointed out one of the main reasons for our national decline. Judges routinely ignore our Constitution and the Rule of Law to rule based on their personal political partisanship which oftentimes is in direct conflict with both our founding documents and present law.

  47. James Maxwell says

    Typical of a so called Justice who wants to violate the very document the established our nation and
    granted right to our citizens, it insure that ex-slaves were granted full citizens ship and freedom from
    tyrants. I strongly suspect that this “justice” is not true American and is another transplant from
    a wannabe dictators bottom side. He is incapable of comprehending the value of such a “contract”
    with the Citizens of a Free Nation where it establishes those rights, freedoms and limitation upon
    government to insure those right of a Free Society. How this ignorant moron became a judge is
    about as understand as how a mau mau from Kenyua could slither into our Nation and get put
    in the position of President.

  48. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

    Hard to believe this activist liberal judge was appointed to the circuit court by Ronald Reagan. Our SCOTUS justices generally come from the JV farm teams at the district level. Should scare all Conservative Constitutionalist voters. Remember:

    The difference between the U.S. Supreme Court and the Ku Klux Klan is that the members of the Supreme Court dress in black robes and scare white people.

  49. Charlie says

    So does Judge Posner also believe that if one was to let the foundation of anything crumble by the way side said anything would still stand ? More visual example the foundation of a building if foundation crumbles then the whole of the building will fail . Our Constitution is the foundation of all laws that follow Our Constitution . Our Constitution has set parameters for all laws , parameters each federal branch of government , powers granted to federal , state , local government and granted powers of We the People . Any law or regulation that does not stay within said restrictions set forth in Our Constitution should be challenged and/or declared Constitutionally illegal .
    Judge Posner perhaps you have lost your way for your remarks on the topic of Our Constitution are self serving and show off your personal confusion on Our Constitution purpose . For Our Constitution is the brick and mortar that has held Our ( We the People) Nation as a sovereign nation for 240 years. Perhaps it is past time for retirement for you Judge Posner
    HAPPY FORTH OF JULY , INDEPENDENCE DAY !.

  50. John doe says

    This judge should step down since he does not want to up hold our US CONSTITUTION , he must be a liberal . I suggest he move to a socialist country were he will feel more at home and stop sponging off America .

  51. Marine1962 says

    I hate to break the sad news to this Left-Wing Socialist Marxist judge but the Constitution will be there when his bones are nothing but dust!!!

  52. richard schlinder says

    This is but only one reason among a thousand that I left the states ten years ago all be it a big one.
    The power of the people to govern themselves have been sucked out of the constitution and given to government.

  53. raledbetter says

    Another Heeb Left wing judge with the Socialiast/Commie gene born in his skanky body

  54. RsGoat says

    How wrong could one man be? Maybe they should change the direction of those classes and study our Constitution even harder looking into how not having our freedoms has affected other countries or when the Press sold out to a cause a nation could be led astray into collapse and rebellion with just a few leaders of Journalism at the helm!
    The ultimate importance contained in our basic freedoms and rights to disagree, argue passionately and peacefully until we reach an acceptable conclusion of our differences is contained in that document and no other government on earth has it! Our educators and those they educate should learn to understand and love that old piece of paper so many have fought and died to keep in existence!
    A judge who can’t understand it’s importance never learned in school, what else is missing in him?

  55. ZACAL says

    The 7th circuit Judge is one of most Judges that can’t see beyond political correctness. It’s not complicated, In the past 50 years when society began removing common ethics, morals, and just plain and simple common sense from their daily lives, our once proud solid society began a rapid descent. And it’s gaining speed court decision after court decision. When you try and replace the Constitution with political correctness you’re witnessing a nasty counter action. It will continue like a cancer if discipline from all segments of society are put back in place. Like I said, “it’s not complicated”….

  56. Bob Stewart says

    Posner is a fool. The constitution is the law of the land and the document which guides the legality of all laws passed by congress. There is a method of changing the constitution and it is certainly not by some egotistical lawyer who deems himself smarter than the document that has guided this country for over a century. With lawyers like Posner, no wonder they are ranked behind most professions and on a par with hookers.

  57. Ed Stahl says

    Anybody know where to get a large “can”? This guy needs kicked out of office with that can tied securely to his rear end– so not removable for a month! It might be “cruel and unusual treatment” by constitution,- but forget it,- constitution now obsolete you know! Animals now have rights, but people don’t! What did he swear to upon “installation in his Federal job”???

  58. doug says

    This judge must resign or be removed from office, it’s the law to up hold the constitution of the United States, he must step down

  59. mossbergman says

    he’s an Ass ,human nature does not change , you can see in the Constitution they foresaw our problems and warned us. Ignoring History is not good. In his oath did he not swear to up hold the Constitution and the laws of our land. ??~~seems time for him to step down

  60. Mark Tercsak says

    Sounds like a Bush/Obama Blshevik Globalist ! Impeach him.

  61. pmbalele says

    The US Constitution should replace all religious books. That way we can avoid killing one another for reasons in words of these religious books.

  62. ToniStimmel says

    Like 99.44% of lawyers and judges, the only studying they ever did and/or had of the Constitution, after high school, was a desperate search for something in the written words which they thought could somehow benefit their client’s case.

  63. Tuffy Butler says

    Bingo – this judge exemplifies exactly what is wrong with this country today. I guessing the extremist left are tiring of attacking God and the Bible. This idiot judge is a shining example as to why we need term limits not only for the house and the senate but, judges starting with the supreme ones.

  64. ward says

    “Time” to abolish these treasonous judges & bureaurcts that are internally destroying all U.S. Patriotic Citizens Freedom & Rights … ! Getting these treasonous bastards out of office is not enough by it self but a trial for treason to their sworn oaths to protect the U.S. Constitution & National Security is the start for denouncing their citizenship & removing them from the U.S.A. but execution solves the problem ….. !

  65. hiphop says

    He is in violation of this oath of office. He should be removed and replaced with and oath keeping person who respects our constitution.

      Is this Obama that you are talking about?

      1. hiphop says

        No about the Judge who says the constitution is not worth studying,

  66. millerstwo says

    I’m not that surprised by yet another “traitor in our midst”, are you?!
    Of course these ‘want to be dictators’ belittle the Constitution which they all swore to “protect and defend” as it’s the only instrument that affords “we the people” some semblance of protection from their evil tyrannical government.
    As for me the brilliance of our Founding Fathers boggles my mind, they created a document that seems to be ageless as it is as relevant today as it was back in 1776. They realized that defending ourselves from that tyrannical government made gun ownership ‘by the people’ important enough to make it the second amendment only after our most basic right of “Freedom of Speech”.
    Our Constitution is the ONLY thing keeping the ‘wolves’ at bay my friends and our weapons which they want so badly are our only solace!

  67. Bella Gray says

    This judge is a fool and should be kicked off the bench. If he doesn’t recognize that the Constitution is all that truly protects us from the corruption of our own government is a sorry excuse for a judge. I also strongly suspect he is one of the socialist/communist and it trying to get rid of the only thing that is stopping his group from taking over our government and that is TREASON!

  68. Jim says

    And that is a large part of the problem with the direction our society is going today. The United States Constitution is a timeless document that was constructed to prevent a tyrannical government from taking absolute control over the citizens. The Bill of Rights is very clear that the right specified were considered, and are still considered, to be “natural” or “God given” rights of every citizen, and that such rights were not to be ignored or removed by any subsequent “tyrannical government.

  69. NativeAmer1can says

    with the judges making the CONSTITUTION OLD, MUSTY AND DEAD, IT CLEARS THE WAY FOR THEM TO DO WHAT THEY WANT,,LEGISLATE FROM THE BENCH. the CONSTITUTION IS AN iron-clad CONTRACT to the citizens if THEY AN KEEP IT, THEY WILL HAVE A republic govt. iT IS NOT A QUESTION if WE CAN KEEP IT. BUT A QUESTION OF NOBODY KNOWS BECAUSE OUR SCHOOLS HAVE BEEN TAKEN OVER AND DOESNT teach GOVT., THE CONSTITUTION or other things of value. now it is ok to do anything they want, except , pray. learn and grow. we can thank legislation from the bench for everything happening. judges who dont judge. and in THEIR high OPINION, KNOW what is best for us. RIGHTS ARE RIGHTS, the first 10 are OURS..after that you have priveleges, and those CAN be restricted..but, shhhh. dont tell the SUPREME COURT that..they might get OFFENDED.

  70. Barney Biggs says

    Folks the main war we in many of our nations have today is with Globalists who are hell bent on tearing down borders and cultures and recreating a world built to their own specifications. I am not an American but include in the Globalist camp your SUCUS, your current POTUS many if nor most of your Congress, PM Trudeau, Pena, Merkel, Cameron, the IMF, World Bank, UN, Canadian Supreme court and many others. They will through various means make your Constitution and most of our National laws irrelevant and convince the young that only they have the smarts to run the show. This is a war we cannot afford to lose but most don’t even know is taking place.

  73. USPatriotOne says

    This is treason…I hold a JD and all Laws and this Nation are completely based on the U.S. Constitution/Bill of Rights and the Holy Bible…PERIOD..!!! If a Judge that took and oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution and then make this statement has clearly committed TREASON against our NATION..!!! The man needs to arrested TODAY and charged with TREASON..NOW..!!! God help us, Please!

  74. esqualido says

    The old fart thinks the Constitution doesn’t keep up with today’s technology. He understands the part where the government isn’t supposed to read your mail, but when it comes to email, he gets confused.

  75. Charley C. says

    This judge should be removed from the bench on the grounds of Treason and dereliction of his duty’s . if he cannot see the Constitution and the bill of rights are what makes this Republic grate by protecting it’s people from over reach of our government .

  76. downs1 says

    May God Almighty deal with this man, Judge Posner according to his miserable foolishness! The Constitution and Declaration of Independence were written in the name of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the same God of Posner’s ancestors who walked away from Him in the past and were judged. This foolish man hasn’t learned anything and is willing to turn away from that which made this nation great! He is a traitor to his oath!

  77. mholdcraft says

    “I, Richard Posner, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and
    defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies,
    foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the
    same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation
    or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge
    the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
    That is the oath Posner took when he accepted his Federal Judge position. Obviously he has totally forgotten that oath. He should be impeached and removed from his Federal position.

  78. disqus_MZe2ymfHQj says

    This guy Posner , should not be allowed to be a judge, I’m sure he swore to uphold the constitution , so he
    has lied under oath, which proves he is not honorable.

  79. Bebe Nix says

    Should be disbarred immediately! That is Treasonist.

    This is the laws of the land that other laws are or should be based on. Throw out the Constitution and we throw out the freedoms we have been given which I suspect is the purpose of this liberal judge.

  83. hotrodrobert says

    Immediate removal and loss of Law Licencing sounds just about right to me .

  84. Bachelor With Sense says

    I see NO Value to US Citizens to follow any Law, which means that ANYONE thinking/behaving like this Judge can be thrown into a grave JUST BECAUSE someone else thinks that that is where he belongs!

    So mr. Judge, how does it “feel” to know you can be hung at any moment? OH NO, that would be against “the law”… YOU either follow the LAW or there is NO Law! YOU think you can have it Both ways? YOU Can’t!

  85. DaveM says

    Hey judge…if you do not like the ground work of America why are you a “judge”? To me you have earned no respect and I for one will look forward to the day that justice will topple you Krap machine! You are no smart nor are you intelligent to knock the very system that allows you to be who you are! So which one are you…Dumb or Dumber?

  86. MichaelZZ says

    U.S. SUPREME COURT

    Most assume the minds on the U.S. Supreme Court are some of the most knowledgeable scholars of jurisprudence.

    If that assumption were correct, why are their decisions anything but unanimous?

    How can these legal scholars reach different conclusions, based upon the same set of facts?

    Assuming the blindfold on Lady Justice reflects the suppression of bias and prejudice for the purpose of achieving objectivity, how and why are too many decisions “multi-dimensional”?

    We’ve experienced the phrases, conservative Court and liberal Court.

      Mainly because regardless of their denial, many of the justices will base their decisions on personal convictions, political affiliations, or societal demands.

      1. MichaelZZ says

        Stipulated, but all three should be disqualifiers.

        If a decision can be shown to be based upon factors of bias and prejudice, those Justices should be removed from the Court.

        mz

  87. Brenda says

    Two points:
    l. We are a ship lost at sea. No longer do justices look to the Constitution or even written law, but they often render decisions based on societal demands.
    2. The 14th Amendment, meant to grant citizenship to slaves after the Civil War, has been abused to the point of ridicule. It is the 14th that has allowed for the existence of anchor babies, of the growing “birth tourism’ by foreigners, and the “equal protection” afforded illegal aliens, This one should be repealed.

  88. Dennis McLain says

    Looks like we need to replace these federal (feral) judges that do not support the Constitution of our country that so many have fought and died with their blood to preserve our way of life to have a POS judge like this spit on it by ingnoring it. This judge and ones like him are part of the problem these days, because they choose political sides, just like in the supreme court as well. They need to go away and the people can do that. We need to give them only 4 years at a time, just like elected officials, with a max term limit of 8 years. No room for politics in a court of law!

  89. donl says

    Check this out; Why is the DOJ taking over our local police depts. ?? This IS scary.

  90. Cadfael says

    Time for 7th Circuit Judge Richard Posner to step down without any rights to further pay, pension, or retirement for violations of his oath of office, malicious intent to break the oath from the beginning which constitutes perjury, and aiding and abetting others to do the same. He also needs to lose his law license without a chance to ever get it back. The breach of an oath of office perjury charge can be leveled also against Representatives, Senators, this President for sure, and all others in this administration who have sworn to defend and uphold the Constitution and are complicit in the violations of the Bill of Rights, i.e. Pizza Sit In participants against the second and fifth amendment, our attorney general who picks and chooses which laws to follow and who is above the law, as well as our secretary of state who participates in non-congressionally sanctioned treaties, and negotiations.

    1. Joseph Nicholas Toth Jr. says

      Sorry to say that none of what you had said would never come to pass. Since Obama became president, this country has been on a downward spiral. And there are no signs it will stop any time soon, if ever. The Democratic Party has become a malignant cancer to this country. Everywhere you look you will see the eroding of the American values that we once held so dear. Just look at the people we have elected. They have become multi-millionaires while their constituents grovel for breadcrumbs left behind. To be fair there been many Republicans also have been corrupted by power. The Democratic Party used to brag that it was the party of the people, now it’s just a Democratic party consisting of only the elite. The people are just there ATMs. I’m over 70 now, and I’ve seen the good, the bad, and the ugly, and right now all I see is the ugly. My expiration date isn’t that far off ,which could be a good thing, because it hurts to see our present day government tearing

      this country apart.

      1. Cadfael says

        I share your sentiments Joseph! What I wrote would need the determination of the people to once again follow our laws, to do what is just, what is right and decent but the organized crime syndicate called DNC and to a large degree also the RNC have eroded our values, perverted our culture and abandoned faith altogether.

        I am not too far behind you and to see all that I and others who served for this country mocked and degraded, hurts. Sometimes I ask myself why I had to bury so many of my friends who died for this country; it seems like we buried the wrong people.

        These politicians aren’t worth the free plane ticket they get to Washington, D.C. . All males in my family have served, I am glad some of them aren’t here anymore because I’m afraid they’d get arrested for tearing some of these “administrators” a new opening to their colon.

        Obama’s
        Killer Economy

        By Betsy
        McCaughey

        Wednesday,
        April 27 2016

        Every
        candidate should be putting forward policies to jumpstart the economy –
        including lowering corporate tax rates, deregulating, improving international
        trade deals, and wooing companies and capital back into the U.S.

        Middle-aged
        people laid off and unable to find work are taking another way out. They’re
        killing themselves. Suicide rates are soaring, according to federal data
        released last week. Especially in economically depressed states and job-starved
        regions like upstate New York. People in need of work are twice as likely to
        take their own lives as employed people, and people fired in their forties and
        fifties find it hardest to get hired again.

        That
        makes boosting economic growth a life and death issue. But you wouldn’t know it
        listening to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. President Obama whitewashes
        reality, claiming the “American economy is pretty darn good right
        now.”

        False.
        The Obama economy is stalled. It grew at a measly 0.7 percent annualized rate
        in the first quarter of this year. That’s compared with the 3.5 percent rate
        the U.S. enjoyed for most of the 20th century. That’s the growth needed to
        sustain employment and optimism.

        True, the
        economy slowed under George W. Bush. Obama inherited a recession, and with it,
        a suicide epidemic. When the recession hit, suicide deaths suddenly started
        outnumbering deaths from auto accidents. But eight years later, job losses are
        still driving the suicide rate higher and higher.

        Hillary
        Clinton seems not to care. She’s pledging to close down the coal industry and
        block fracking of natural gas. Which means more pain for coal country and for
        portions of upstate New York that are sitting on natural gas treasure.
        Self-inflicted deaths in the Syracuse area are up about 40 percent in the past
        five years, and rates in depressed western New York are double New York City’s
        rate, all attributable to economic distress. Upstate New Yorkers are literally
        dying for jobs.

        Similarly,
        joblessness is killing people in Walker County, Alabama, where the coal mines
        have been shutting down, leaving families destitute. Since 1999, premature
        deaths among the middle aged there have more than doubled — some from suicide
        and others from slower methods of self-destruction like alcohol and opioids.
        Anne Case, a Princeton University economist has documented the rapid increase
        in premature deaths, a consequence of “millions of people … in
        pain.”

        New
        Jersey used to have one of the lowest suicide rates in the nation, but it’s
        shot up 13 percent in two years. “We’ve seen a wave of suicides that
        resulted from the financial crisis a little bit later than other parts of the
        country,” reports prevention advocate Phil Lubitz.

        Stagnating
        wages are linked to suicide in every state. Montana, which has the highest
        suicide rate in the nation, in part because of the isolated lifestyle there,
        has seen the same sudden surge as elsewhere in the nation. “Probably the
        biggest reason is socio-economic,” says Karl Rosston, Montana’s suicide
        prevention coordinator.

        Economic
        distress is so widespread that for the first time ever, life expectancy of
        white women in the U.S. actually dropped. Despite progress against cancer and
        heart disease, lives are being cut short by hopelessness.

        It’s a
        national health emergency. Suicide kills more middle agers than flu, pneumonia
        and diabetes combined. They often occur after dashed expectations, abandonment
        by a spouse and loss of self-worth. Then, a bullet to the head or a noose (for
        men), or a deliberate drug overdose (for women) ends the pain.

        These
        tragedies should awaken this nation to the real issue in the coming
        presidential election. It is not inequality, despite Bernie Sanders’ rants.
        It’s lack of growth and the Democratic Party’s refusal to make growth a
        priority.

        People
        don’t kill themselves because their neighbor has more money. They take their
        life when they can see no way to get a job, support their family and regain
        self-worth.

        The
        Congressional Budget Office predicts that with current policies in effect,
        growth will lumber along at less than 3 percent — too little to stop the
        suicides.

        Every
        candidate should be putting forward policies to jumpstart the economy —
        including lowering corporate tax rates, deregulating, improving international
        trade deals, and wooing companies and capital back into the U.S.

        Job-killing
        policies are people-killers, too. Suicide spiked during the Depression in 1933,
        rose and fell with economic growth thereafter, and hit an all time low with the
        tech boom in 2000. Now, 10 years of economic stagnation are producing another
        wave of human tragedy, as laid off workers see no way out except death.

  91. justanagent says

    Another good reason to do away with lifetime appointments for federal judges including supreme court justices. Make them subject to periodic, staggered, nonpartisan retention elections. It’s the only way to keep them “on the reservation”. This will require a Constitutional amendment. It all begins with an article V convention of states.

    ANY federal judge who says the constitution is irrelevant MUST be removed from office.

  96. Dick Ellis says

    THEN I SEE NO REASON TO KEEP THIS OLD MOSS BACK JERK OF A JUDGE ON THE BENCH ANY LONGER COLLECTING MOSS! A WORTHLESS PICE OF CRAP THAT NEEDS THROWN IN THE MANURE WAGON!

  97. Nina Ferguson says

    My understanding is when someone is elected to an office, either city, state, federal, they are sworn in and it says that they “obey the Constitution if the United States of America”. When they swear this oath, are they just babbling or what?

    1. mholdcraft says

      “I, Richard Posner, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and
      defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies,
      foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the
      same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation
      or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge
      the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
      That is the oath Posner took when he accepted his Federal Judge position.
      Obviously he has totally forgotten that oath. He should be impeached
      and removed from his Federal position.

  98. Ron says

    The Constitution of the US is the entire basis ob our Republic. It spells out the democratic principals the government is supposed to follow. If we do not have it anymore then what are we? What type of nation will we be (a bunch of tribal leaders)? This so called judge is insane and should be disbarred. Look up the rules of canon judge.

  99. CHRISTINE says

    Judge Posner, It sounds to me like you’re not worthy of being a Federal Judge anymore. Do you realize the Constitution was written by people far more intelligent than most people living….it contains laws that pertain to many of the things going on right now and stops them in their tracks. Its amazing that these writers were able to see these problems so well in advance. These guys were geniuses …..

  100. dustoff 63 says

    John W. Hughes. for 240 years the Constitution has survived as a respected document that has been the shining light in legal decisions in this country. Judge Posner (and I use this lightly) seems to think that this molding document has run its worth and we need another guideline. Should it be posted on a milk bottle? Well, lets take a look at why we need a guideline. The American schools don’t even give a damn about American History so the mopes that have managed to get through 12 years of school for many many years now go out into the world living one moment to the next and as things appear in its path, they take care of the need at that moment (generally making the wrong decision).
    . That seems to be what Judge Posner wants today’s Legal system to evolve to. Now, lets look over our shoulder for a moment at 240 successful years of evolvment. Evolvment: to develop or evolve gradually. When God made Adam, He said that Adam seemed lonely so he took a rib from Adam and made Eve. But then the problem began to be rather obvious. They needed rules and regulations so God issued rules and regulations which they broke and paid the penalty of banishment from the Garden of Eden. We were given rules and regulations by our founding Fathers that came in the Bill of Rights and the Constitution and we have “followed them” to the best of our ability and have survived for 240 years. Now Judge Posner wants, like Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayer want to throw out the Bill of Rights and The Constitution so that we can continue to evolve as we see fit. Not on my watch Judge Posner, Ginsburg and Sotomayer. Those two documents were inspired by God and we have survived for 240 years by following them. I bet you three feel we came from some slimy thing that crawled out of a pond.

  101. Roy says

    The Constitution is not one of the greatest legal foundations for government in the history of the world, it is unequivocally THE greatest. What Posner and his ilk do not understand is that the “nature of man” is exactly the same today as when the Eighteenth-century guys were applying their genius. Evil is still evil and man left to his own devices gravitates to evil. Those in government willingly gravitate to evil and those under the heavy mantle of the “Justice System” especially gravitate to evil in the guise of power.

  102. BT says

    The judge is looking for “stars” on the Supreme Court? He needs to be fired immediately. Judges are not appointed (or elected, in state courts) to be stars. They are appointed (in the case of the federal judiciary) to be experts in the United States Constitution, the federal code and federal common law, so that they can properly apply the law (collectively) to the set of circumstances before them. This judge has just admitted that he sees no reason to be qualified to do that. Therefore, he needs to be fired or impeached immediately. Now, we all know that’s not going to happen in this administration because he accurately articulates the mindset of everyone in it. That is why we must change what party is represented in the White House. This is not a note about how wonderful Donald Trump is; it is note about how awful Hillary Clinton is and how we cannot allow her into the White House. This country has a brain cancer. The only cure is to cut it out, root and branch.

  105. Alan404 says

    The man is, I guess, entitled to his opinion, ridiculous though it is.

    1. mholdcraft says

      No, he is not entitled to his opinion, he is bound by his oath of office, which he has forgotten. He should be removed from his position.

      1. Alan404 says

        blerecall, as memory serves, a case from a federal court sited in Ohio. I believe the judge’s name was Mickey O’Rourke, and the case dealt with firearms/gun control. The sitting judge tossed the government’s case, with the following observation. As Mr. O’Rourke, I would tend to think that there are possibly to many guns “in circulation”. As Judge O’Rourke, the government’s case was dismissed, with prejudice as memory serves.

        As I said, here the judge is also entitled to his opinion, however he must separate his personal opinions from his action as a judge. This judge does not appear so capable, while Judge O’Rourke was, a significant difference.

  106. mholdcraft says

    “I, Richard Posner, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and
    defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies,
    foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the
    same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation
    or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge
    the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
    That is the oath Posner took when he accepted his Federal Judge position.
    Obviously he has totally forgotten that oath. He should be impeached
    and removed from his Federal position.

  107. louann says

    No wonder our country is going down. Why is he a so called judge?

  108. ramesaz says

    Posner is full of it. The Constitution is as relevant today as it was in 1776. I defy anyone to justify where a part of the constitution is not still the best way to govern. Just because we have evolved into different political philosophies doesn’t change the concept that the Constitution is and always has been a protection for the people against the government. This is the same thing as saying “lets rewrite the Bible” because it isn’t pertinent to us in modern times. Oh, by the way God, your rules are outdated and no longer justified because we really like living in sin now, so we are going to discontinue studying your Bible. Oh, in fact, we already have. Woe is us!

  109. ringostarr1 says

    Judge Posner is 77 years old which means that it may be time to impose an age limit on Federal Judges. The real problem here is the institutions of so called “Higher Learning” that miss-educate our young people. Posner is a product of these institutions of higher learning or maybe I should rephrase that and say “Learning on a High” What Judge Posner as a private citizen said about the Constitution as a private citizen is Judge Posner’s right to say under our Constitution. Go back and read some of his legal opinions like I did and I find little to condemn him for. What I see here is either an attempt by Hillary Clinton or else Ted Cruz to confuse and bamboozle the American voter.

  110. supergun says

    This is nothing but pure treason.

  111. Master Blaster Pursel says

    This needs to be sent to Donald Trump so he can FIRE HIS A** when Trump is President!!!!!!

  112. MARYSWEET says

    Judge Posner should step down and also lose his law license. The Constitution is the foundation of our Republic and should remain as a sacred document that has served us well. That is until the left wing decides they don’t like it because it hampers their changing the way our country works. Yet people from all over the world still want to come to America because it is the only country that is a Republic and it has worked well until the communist left wing wants to take over and destroy it.

  113. PatriotParatrooper says

    This judge needs to be thrown in prison and the key destroyed.

  114. FREECONSERVATIVE says

    I beg to disagree with the judge. The Constitution was written to guide a nation and protect the civil liberties of citizens. It was never intended to be a code book or series of laws like we have in our law libraries. It was intended to give guidance to short term judges not these fossils we have in courts now. Get rid of life tenure judges and politicians with one term of service only. This will eliminate Rhinos etc.
    Every person should read that document and it should be required reading in high schools and colleges. The brilliance of the framers should be understood and built into each person. I dare any judge, politician, or professor to put together a better document to guide a new nation for over 200 years.

  115. Randy Bower says

    The problem is with people like this that can’t live by the set of laws and rules set fourth by our founding fathers.They have no morals,no honor,no pride,no conscience,and no self worth.They just have contempt for what they can’t control,sounds like a Liberal Democrat to me.

    1. AKLady2015 says

      Tell me exactly what the Founding Fathers had to say about the Internet>
      Better yet, what did the say about atomic weapins? Do you think they meant for the Second Amendment to legalize personal atom bombs? Germ warfare? Machine guns? …

      1. Edward J Baker says

        They clearly understood armaments as an innate and inalienable human right and a necessary check on the tyrannical inclinations of government.

        And how does the existence of the internet affect in any way the nature of an endowed human nature with innate and inviable human rights?

      2. ringostarr1 says

        AKLady, you need to oil your Russian to English translation App, it’s gone off the reservation again.

        1. AKLady2015 says

          Insults only impress those who resapect your opinion.
          You just lost my respect.

      3. Randy Bower says

        The constitution was based on common sense,freedoms,and Liberties,and rights.Well these things are not being used by the Liberal Democrats,I guess that is why they view the Constitution as something in the way of their thinking.All these things can be adapted it is looked at with common sense and not nonsense.

  116. Spectre7075 says

    Judge Poster, obviously you are delusional. Please resign your judges hip the, commit suicide!!!!!

  117. Susan Fuchs says

    this judge is ignorant beyond belief, with his “knowledge” and attitude, I can say to HIM, since you don’t follow the constitution, I don’t have to follow the laws of this land, or your judgment!!! it will simply change tomorrow, dumbass!

    1. AKLady2015 says

      Why do you embarrass America with childish name calling?
      Why do you embarrass America with childish foul language?
      That is something most children give up by the 2nd or 3rd grade.

      1. Susan Fuchs says

        I will not argue with someone who knows nothing about our constitution and what is happening in this land, arm yourself with knowledge, then talk to people.

      2. Edward J Baker says

        Why do you embarrass America with your ignorance of the Constitution?

        1. ringostarr1 says

          Edward, to answer you question she is paid to embarrass America and /americans by her employer, Vladimir Putin.

  118. flashy0ne says

    It’s really horrifying to hear a judge make such a statement. His WHOLE life has been devoted to relying on “legal precedent”. His education (if he had one) was guided by ‘case law’; his office (if he has one) probably has an entire wall devoted to his legal library — each volume filled with case law from which his legal precedents flow — and many of these precedents predate the Constitution. The real reason these modern ‘thinkers’ want to sink the Constitution is because it has established precedent which contradicts their ‘idea’ of “utopia”. Unfortunately, the Judicial Branch of the U.S. government wants to get into the pants of the Legislative Branch (which they have already done) “well, this is what Congress really meant to say” !! Personally, I just want them to recognize WHAT the Constitution says and judge HONESTLY !! If the PEOPLE don’t like what this time PROVEN document says, THEY can amend it.

    1. AKLady2015 says

      I suspect all lawyers and judges now rely upon electronic copies of the laws and published cases.

      1. ringostarr1 says

        The judge in question condemned judges for relying on things like newspaper stories and asinine opinions like AKLady’s when those judges were handing down legal rulings.

    2. AKLady2015 says

      The Constitution is law. It does not constitute “precedent”.
      Previous cases establish precedent.

      1. Edward J Baker says

        And the Constitution, and sanity, does not recognize positive law through “precedent,” however much moronic judges seek to use precedent. The Constitution, and sanity, also sets limits on the power of the federal government.

  119. Terry Rushing says

    I would be curious to know by what standard this “judge” would formulate his “judgments”. Should his idea prevail then there would likely be no standard of “acceptable conduct” since every judge might have his own view of “legal” and “illegal.”

    1. AKLady2015 says

      Have you any idea how many antiquated laws remain on the books?
      Stupid laws like making it a crime to eat an ice cream cone while walking down the street.

      1. Edward J Baker says

        The Constitution is not the source nor intended to be the source of all local statutes.

    2. AKLady2015 says

      Guilty and not quility are the issues before a judge.
      The law states what is illegal.

      1. Edward J Baker says

        Which judges routinely ignore in favor of their own ideology. Thankfully we have a Constitution that prohibits this.

      2. ringostarr1 says

        Yes the law states what is illegal, that is why the former Republican Governor of Virginia had his ethics conviction overturned because he didn’t violate any laws except for the fact that he posed a grave political danger to Hillary. But since you obviously live and work in the former Soviet Union you already knew that.

      “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

    What he is saying is that obama has trashed our Constitution in so many ways. It may not be the supreme law of this land as it states clearly

    1. AKLady2015 says

      Why do you need to tell this lie?
      Why do you embarrass America this way?
      Why do you believe it is acceptable to lie?
      Why do you believe it is acceptable to repeat lies?

      1. snowyriver says

        Do you know what a “natural born citizen” of the United States is? I want YOU to look it up.. obama does not qualify ! ! !

        1. AKLady says

          I am very aware of what is required for U.S. citizenship — by birth.

          I was born to military parents — outside the U.S.
          I have two children who were born outside of the U.S. to military parents.

          Maybe you should actualy look it up.
          https://www.uscis.gov/us-citizenship

          All that is required is ONE U.S. CITIZEN parent.

          1. snowyriver says

            I said nothing about citizenship, nothing at all

          2. AKLady says

            “natural born citizen”

            I gave you the law. Look it up.

            All the sources routinely used to interpret the Constitution confirm that the phrase “natural born Citizen” has a specific meaning: namely, someone who was a U.S. citizen at birth with no need to go through a naturalization proceeding at some later time.

          3. ringostarr1 says

            Your “military” parents were obviously members of the Cheka, the KGB, or else the NKVD.

          4. AKLady2015 says

          Obama born August 4, 1961….IN HAWAII
          Hawaii became a state in August 21, 1959
          Obama’s mother was a US Citizen.
          What more do you want?????
          Your wannabe president, Cruz was not born in the US, but you accept him as a citizen?
          Get your stuff together before you make dumbass statements.

          1. snowyriver says

            First: obama was born in Kenya.. Second his father was NOT a citizen of the United States.. Third obama’s mother was not old enough to convey citizenship.

            And Fourth : Natural Born Citizen is one born on the land with parents as citizens of that nation… Note parents and citizens are plural.

            And last: neither obama , nor Cruz , nor Rubio , meet the requirements to be president of the United States.

          2. gotabgood says

            hahahahaha
            That case, John McCain is not a “Natural Born Citizen”!
            BUT
            You don’t have a clue as to what you are talking about… and one more little tidbit of information… this may come as a complete and total shock to you…. better sit down…. Obama has only 4 months of his SECOND TERM AS PRESIDENT left!!
            >
            The Constitution
            The Constitution makes it clear who is eligible to be a presidential candidate, stating that any person wishing to run must be a natural born citizen. Meaning, immigrants cannot run no matter how many years they have lived in the United States. A person is considered a natural born citizen if he or she is born abroad to American citizens. Only one of the candidate’s parents has to be an American citizen for the candidate to also be considered an American citizen and be eligible to run.

            For example, Ted Cruz can run for president in 2016 even though he was born in Canada and his father is from Cuba. Cruz can run because his mother is from Delaware. In March 2015, Cruz announced that he is running for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

          3. snowyriver says

            Both of Ted’s parents had applied for and recieved Canadian citizenship Canada at that time did not allow dual citizenship..One parent is not enough.. parents and citizens are both plural..

          4. gotabgood says

            But of course you’re right…..

          5. JYuma says

            Your reading of Article II of the Constitution is Very Lacking. Either that or your reading Comprehension is.
            Macain [ dislike him] Is ,was able to run for President by the FACT that both parents are American Citizens. Cruz could run because of the 14 th. Amendment, and partly Article II.

          6. gotabgood says

            First I was replying to a birther… even after 7 1/2 years of being president, they still won’t let it go…
            Second if you read it carefully it was agreeing with you… or really you was agreeing with me.
            Third when speaking facts, I generally copy and paste, so not to add any of my thoughts… but if you want to check it out… http://www.infoplease.com/us/history/president-requirements.html

        4. Bimu says

          You obviously are using your good and common sense when you reason this result. This will not fit the politically correct option and since elections have consequences, or so the so-called president said, your common sense is to be overruled by the “great” intellect of wishy-washy, feel good, touch all bathroom insanity.

          I’m with you Snowyriver…but the institutions are overrun with one worlder’s, globalists, communist/socialist….the institutions of government and education and journalism…and as such, the American Dream is under high dissolution and is gasping for life. The animals are in charge of the farmhouse, the criminals in charge of the prison, the insane in charge of the asylum. You get the point…this isn’t rocket science. Be Well !!!

          1. snowyriver says

            According to our Constitution the party of the elected president is supposed to verify that he meets the requirements of our Constitution.. The Democrats failed to do this and the Repubs failed to raise a protest.. (fear they would be called racist).. All the Democrats in office the day obama was signed into office should have been removed from office. The problem is the people are not schooled in our Constitution. Reading reciting and understanding our Constitution should be mandatory to graduate from high-school.

          2. Bimu says

            I do believe the Constitution is a striking document. It is a shining example of self-governance within a free AND MORAL society.

            I do believe the “checks and balances” have not been adhered to for whatever the reason: Fear of life, exposure of self, collusion, immorality …….

            I do believe the people have been led astray but only because they allowed such to occur, thus faulty representation. Apathy, living off the spoils of the past and from future riches (debt), stupidity, immorality,…….

            I do believe the institutions of this society, this country, have been infiltrated and manipulated allowing for the very processes that shouldn’t happen, to happen: Indoctrination and Segregation. We have become more divided by all the separate but equal groups…hogwash. Equal in spiritual is not equal in the physical. When there are no consequences for actions or the lack of, when discipline is forgone for the sake of feelings, when effort is ridiculed or made mandatory to give away by taxation or the ill will of ridicule, when participation is redefined as ‘showing up’, you just have to reason and ration, the affairs of life, of society, of the nation, has gone astray. Our backbone has emulsified as we are a nation of weaklings with pockets of goodness and strength and patriot thinking.

            In my humble opinion, the Democratic Party has been totally subverted into non-traditional American policies and platforms, more on the order of communistic/socialistic economics, a police state enforcement mentality of government over the people and not for the people, elitist rule of a Pied Piper general population mentality, one world….one BIG world government.

            The Republicans, though much more of the American ideal, do not stand very strong on the American principle of the “Live free or die” attitude. They are pretty wimpy and succumb to the words that add up to lies. We live in egregious times and wimp don’t get it. I suppose there is no belief in the afterlife, in a better place. I don’t have to suppose because that is the foundation of freedom, giving all !

      2. snowyriver says

        Mighty glad you have learned to copy and paste.. hope you learn more.. Have a good day..

        1. AKLady says

          Why do you believe that lies require originality?

      3. Edward J Baker says

        Why do you lie about someone else telling the truth? Since when does the Executive branch get to create or negate legislation through executive order, which Obama even admits to having done?

        1. AKLady2015 says

          Suggest you get a better legal education.
          You might also look into treatment for parinoia.

          1. Edward J Baker says

            So you believe your ignorance over your unread Constitution allows for executive legislation? Suggest you seek some moral wisdom and cease taking cowardly refuge in mindless cliches, You might want to do this in time to cease abusing your children with anti-wisdom.

      4. ringostarr1 says

  121. snowyriver says

    There are ways to change the Constituiton, they are called amendments.

    1. AKLady2015 says

      There have been 33 attempted amendments.
      Only 27 were ratified by the statea.
      An amendment can take years to be approved.
      There are four amendments that are still “technucally” open.

      1. Edward J Baker says

        It should take years.

        1. AKLady2015 says

          But not decades.

      2. JYuma says

        What Four?

  122. freedomoutpost ken says

    This is only a snapshot of the un-American idiots we now have in our Justice system. How about Lynch meeting with Bill Clinton for a half hour on the tarmac of an airport? These people are really that stupid or really that evil, neither works for me.

    1. AKLady2015 says

      Lynch met with Clinton — so what?

      1. freedomoutpost ken says

        “so what?” A victory for the people now that Hillary possibly will have to pay for one of her crimes just like most people always have to do.

  123. DAVID says

    posner is a poser and a traitor to AMERICA he needs to be treated as such and executed for treason and an american judge loyal to AMERICA and her people needs to be put in execute this traitor p.o.s.

      Where were you 30 years ago when Reagan traded arms and trained our enemy Bin Laden?

      1. Edward J Baker says

        Thirty years ago Bin Laden was not yet an avowed enemy of the United States.

        1. gotabgood says

          maybe, maybe not, but Reagan armed him and trained him..

          1. JYuma says

            No sweet, that was Clinton. During the Soviet war with Afghanistan. With the first Bush starting to arming.
            Laden did not become anti-American unit; Bust the First place troops [non mooooslim troops] in Saudi Arabia. There by Defiling Holy Ground.

          2. gotabgood says

            NO! sourpus.. that was NOT Clinton.
            I gave you much proof in another message to you about Bin Laden and Reagan.. (bed partners) they both screwed America.

          3. JYuma says

            I stand corrected by your earlier post.
            I still stand by my statement that laden did not become anti-American until Bush the First placed troops in Saudi.
            As for Reagan being a screwing this country you are so very wrong.

      2. AKLady2015 says

        Reagan inherited a federal budget of $599 billion in revenue, $678 billion in spending, and a deficit of $79 billion. He left office with a federal budget of $909 billion in revenue, a little less than $1.1 trillion in spending, and a deficit of $155 billion.

      3. JYuma says

        Reagan, DID that? When did you get out of the Asylum for the mentally dead?

        1. gotabgood says

          mmmm I thought you were on my side… beware of wolves in sheep clothing,,

          Funding[edit]

          President Reagan meeting with Afghan Mujahideen leaders in the Oval Office in 1983
          See also: Reagan Doctrine
          The U.S. offered two packages of economic assistance and military sales to support Pakistan’s role in the war against the Soviet troops in Afghanistan. The first six-year assistance package (1981–87) amounted to US$3.2 billion, equally divided between economic assistance and military sales. The U.S. also sold 40 F-16 aircraft to Pakistan during 1983–87 at a cost of $1.2 billion outside the assistance package. The second six-year assistance package (1987–93) amounted to $4.2 billion. Out of this, $2.28 billion were allocated for economic assistance in the form of grants or loan that carried the interest rate of 2–3 per cent. The rest of the allocation ($1.74 billion) was in the form of credit for military purchases. More than $20 billion in U.S. funds were funneled into the country to train and arm the Afghan resistance groups.[24]

      Look up “treason” before bandishing around.

    It really bothers me when everyone believes that it is the supreme courts job to interpret the constitution as it pertains to the law. It is not ,1 the “justices” are appointed by the executive branch and so called confirmation by the legaslative branch so in fact the appointed is beholden to the executive .2. So if they (the justices ) were to be able to interpret the constitution as opposed to the laws in question then there is in fact no solid foundation in law and they (the justices and executive ) can run around making decisions based on the current administrations whims or more to the point forcing so called law based on judicial activism which is where we are today . Laws not based on or in the constitution are not laws.

      The Supreme Court is a iifetime appointment. The reason for that is to prevent exactly what you are claiming.

      1. l.bell says

        And yet here we are exactly where I’m claiming.

    This judge needs to be removed from the bench and charged with treason.

  128. Matthew V. Brown says

    This person is not worth being in the judiciary anymore.

    Abraham Lincoln told us years ago”
    “WE THE PEOPLE are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”

    Shocking information is coming from The United States Supreme Court that we have two OUTSPOKEN justices; Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor each think like judge Richard Posner that the Constitution is outdated and we should be open to bringing other Religions, laws into our reviews of Law that would provide a broader respect and representation of the mixture of Cultures living in this country. The Muslim Quran gives a family the right to remove a young girls “Clitoris” by antiquated and cruel means necessary to remove the Clitoris The young women are actually restrained by members of the family while a crude instrument or sharp item is used to perform the removal. Woman are tought
    that they must bear children but not enjoy the pleasure of making them. And it is legal. A Muslim man can have more than one wife. if he is not pleased with a wife, he may kill her. and that is legal. and there are justices on our benches that want to bring that book into mixture with our Constitution so that when heard in a court within the borders of the United States, the perpetrator of these disgraceful events can be found not guilty because of the teaching of the Quran. How about allowing the Chinese laws that says that a family can have only one Daughter in the family. A second daughter being born is a disgrace to the family and is generally killed. Not in this country that we know of. Should we allow that to become law in this country so that the Chinese are not offended by the Muslims getting what they want. And when these judges get their way we will have every nationality in this country demanding their rights to have their home country laws brought in too. Can you imagine the total chaos within our Court system? Nothing but Anarchy abounds. Wake Up America, the clock is ticking down.

    Now if these judges think the Constitution is a moldy old outdated piece of parchment and should be replaced, then I simply say lets get a new piece of parchment and rewrite it word for word from the original. I simply find what these judges want to be not only offensive but outright morally illegal to have in any context with our Constitution and these judges need to be removed from the Courts..Remember, “We The People are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” It therefore is up to you and me to see to it that these justices and others if need be, are removed from the Courts. Your Representative in Congress is your employee. Not the other way around. I cannot bring myself to grace the position of Judge or Justice with a capital letter for those individuals who think they know whats best. Truthfully, I don’t even want them on the bench. How about you?

  130. R. T. says

    This judge is not worth having debench him for violating his OATH of office !

  131. Alan Nevling says

    The federal judiciary below the Supreme Court was stipulated by the Constitution to be instituted and organized by Congress. Thus this judge and all of his fellow federal district judges have their positions and compensation courtesy of “that old, musty document”. Feeling as he does, he should imediately resign his lofty and well compensated position.

  132. William Helwig says

    THE FACT IS THAT EVERY PERSON IN THE UNITED
    STATES NOW FALLS ONLY INTO ONE OF TWO ‘POLITICAL GROUPS’. IT IS KNOW LONGER
    REPUBLICANS VS DEMOCRATS; IT IS CONSTITUTIONALIST VS MARXIST. THE CONSTITUTION IS
    THE ONLY DOCUMENT EVER WRITTEN AND ADOPTED THAT CONVEYS RIGHTS TO THE
    INDIVIDUAL AND IT REQUIRES GOVERNMENT TO BE ACCOUNTABLE TO THE PEOPLE. WHEN YOU
    VOTE THIS NOVEMBER 2016 AND IN THE FUTURE, MAKE SURE YOU ARE VOTING FOR A CONSTITUTIONALIST AND NOT A MARXIST. THERE IS NO IN BETWEEN, OUR ECONOMIC
    FREEDOM, SOVEREIGNTY AND WAY OF LIFE DEPENDS HOW YOU VOTE !!!!!

      Why do you need to tell this lie?
      Why do you embarrass America this way?
      Why do you believe it is acceptable to lie?
      Why do you believe it is acceptable to repeat lies?

      Are you stamping your feet to go with the screaming?
