Gingrich Reaffirms Pledge To Violate Constitution After Promising To Kill Enemies Of Our Nation

After pledging to kill our enemies, Newt Gingrich returned to one of his favorite themes: violating the United States Constitution. In Greenville, South Carolina, Gingrich again said that he would ignore Supreme Court decisions that he disagreed with. We have previously discussed the flaws in Gingrich’s legal and historical views, but my concern is that pledging to violate the Constitution would make Gingrich an enemy of our constitutional system. Does this mean that his first act would be to add his own name to the presidential hit list?

Gingrich told the crowd “The president interprets the Constitution as president. If the court makes a fundamentally wrong decision, president can in fact ignore the courts.”

The question is what threatens our nation the most, destroying a building or a constitutional system? With President Obama continuing the claim of absolute power to kill Americans, the added claim to ignore the check and balance of judicial review would complete our shift toward authoritarian powers.

Precisely it. If anyone promises to do something in his Oath of Office, and also promises to do things that break the Oath, how in the world will anyone know what he might do? Can he be trusted with anything?

Anybody can make an honest mistake and accidentally break his Oath Promise. But when he sets out to do it knowingly, and intentionally, why would anybody even consider him for Office?

But then, that's the way of the American people, isn't it? I mean, just look at the 2 Bush Presidents for example. Their father/grandfather was a reasonably ardent Hitler supporter in WWII... supporter with money, time and effort. Yet we have had two of Hitler supporter descendents as Presidents! Isn't it just amazing what stupid things the American people will do or allow to happen? No wonder the Jews are often up in arms so to speak, more or less using the American people for whatever they wish at times.
