Treason: Barack Obama vs. The Oath of Office for the President of the United States



First, this is the oath of office, as defined in the Constitution (Article II, Section 1, Clause 8), for President of the United States:

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

Contrast that with this 2001 quote by Sen. Barack Obama, with his constitutional law degree tucked in his back pocket (audio and transcript here):

But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. And to that extent as radical as people tried to characterize the Warren court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as it’s been interpreted, and the Warren court interpreted it in the same way that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. It says what the states can’t do to you, it says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf. And that hasn’t shifted. One of the I think tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court focused, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributed change and in some ways we still suffer from that.

How do you intend to fulfill the presidential oath to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States” if you believe that the courts should “break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution.” He further feels that the best way to do this today is “administratively.”

Folks, there is a word for this. It isn’t socialism, marxism, or communism.

To betray your oath to the Constitution is treason.
