Guest Post: On New York Times Op Ed: "Let’s Give Up on the Constitution"

Tyler Durden's picture


Via Michael Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

This New York Times Op Ed by Louis Michael Seidman, a constitutional law professor at Georgetown University, is one of the most absurd and dangerous articles I have read in a very long time. This guy’s incredible conclusion is that it is the Constitution of the United States itself that is causing all that ails the nation at this time.  Not once did I read about the Federal Reserve, or the “war on terror,” or the banker bailouts, or the complete destruction of the rule of law in recent years.  Nope, none of that.  Instead, this scholar’s conclusion is that the founding document, which created the fertile breeding ground for freedom and free markets and led to tens of millions of people to flee to from all corners of the globe, is the problem.

I suppose someone failed to remind Mr. Seidman that the oath of office for the military and those that hold political office continues to be:

I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

As I have said for years, a key part of the macro agenda of the corrupt elite has been and continues to be the destruction of the U.S. Constitution.  While the Bill of Rights is already being dismantled behind the scenes, Mr. Seidman is part of the effort to “sell this”to the sheeple  as I noted in my article: Here We Go…Slate Magazine Bashes the First Amendment.  I expect more of this type of propaganda going forward.

From the New York Times:

As the nation teeters at the edge of fiscal chaos, observers are reaching the conclusion that the American system of government is broken. But almost no one blames the culprit: our insistence on obedience to the Constitution, with all its archaic, idiosyncratic and downright evil provisions.


This is not to say that we should disobey all constitutional commands. Freedom of speech and religion, equal protection of the laws and protections against governmental deprivation of life, liberty or property are important, whether or not they are in the Constitution. We should continue to follow those requirements out of respect, not obligation.

The above paragraph is important for two reasons.  First, he picks and chooses what part of the Constitution he agrees with and then says those things are good and should remain.  More disturbingly, he then says we should defend freedom based on “respect not obligation.”  This is insane.  The reason the Bill of Rights exists is to enshrine the protection of civil rights under the law so that an authoritarian government cannot trample them.  Do you really expect government to protect civil rights out of “respect” if they are not obligated to by law?  Not a chance.  Then he concludes with:

But before abandoning our heritage of self-government, we ought to try extricating ourselves from constitutional bondage so that we can give real freedom a chance.

Full Op Ed here.

Please pass this on to every freedom loving American you know.

can't say it better than this guy.

"i believe the battles of the insurrection will be fought in new york city, in washington d.c., and in chicago, illinois and finally, los angeles and san francisco, california because that is where the enemy is.  in those cities the insurrection will find its most visible and iconic targets, those most actively seeking the imposition of tyranny.  there will be found the politicians who posit public protection when what they really intend to impose is the foundation (in the removal of our weapons) for the attack on our other liberties, ... , that being the imposition of restrictions upon free speech and assembly."

I don't want to hear it referred to as the "Fiscal Cliff" anymore.

From hear on out we are going to be referring to it as a "Fiscal Episode".

Everyone needs to get on the same page with this and refer to it with the proper ZH terminology.

Thank You.


Centerlines's wife said;

Like my wife says... "I'm a good person and have nothing to hide."  Then goes on about more protection from all the criminals and terrorists is a good thing and worth the price of certain freedoms.

I say;

I have everything to hide from the people whom I personally do not authorize to see my shit. I do not authorize my government to store even my writings hear on Zero Hedge. Yes the general public can store my writings on their hard drives, but NOT my government employees on government databases with my tax payer dollars that are going to pay for the government data storage. Get it strait fuckheads. Do you see the difference?

I also predict that the US will eventually pass a law which forbids US citizens from exiting the States without an exit visa. Then you'll need to make application to have kids (already predicted) as part of the US One Child Policy.

Fuck that. If I were you, I'd go out with guns blazing....just let me get my popcorn first.

  • Louis Michael Seidman, Geoffrey R. Stone, Mark V. Tushnet, Cass R. Sunstein & Pamela S. Karlan, The First Amendment (New York: Aspen Publishers 4th ed. 2012).    [BOOK]
First Amendment

In his book Democracy and the Problem of Free Speech Sunstein says there is a need to reformulate First Amendment law. He thinks that the current formulation, based on Justice Holmes' conception of free speech as a marketplace “disserves the aspirations of those who wrote America’s founding document.”[18] The purpose of this reformulation would be to “reinvigorate processes of democratic deliberation, by ensuring greater attention to public issues and greater diversity of views.”[19] He is concerned by the present “situation in which like-minded people speak or listen mostly to one another,”[20] and thinks that in “light of astonishing economic and technological changes, we must doubt whether, as interpreted, the constitutional guarantee of free speech is adequately serving democratic goals.”[21] He proposes a “New Deal for speech [that] would draw on Justice Brandeis' insistence on the role of free speech in promoting political deliberation and citizenship.”[19]

Military commissions

In 2002, at the height of controversy over Bush's creation of military commissions without Congressional approval, Sunstein stepped forward to insist, "Under existing law, President George W. Bush has the legal authority to use military commissions" and that "President Bush's choice stands on firm legal ground." Sunstein scorned as "ludicrous" an argument from law professor George P. Fletcher, who believed that the Supreme Court would find Bush's military commissions without any legal basis.[17]

In recent years Sunstein has collaborated with academics who have training in behavioral economics, most notably Daniel Kahneman, Richard Thaler, and Christine M. Jolls, to show how the theoretical assumptions of law and economics should be modified by new empirical findings about how people actually behave.

The interpretation of federal law should be made not by judges but by the beliefs and commitments of the U.S. president and those around him, according to Sunstein. "There is no reason to believe that in the face of statutory ambiguity, the meaning of federal law should be settled by the inclinations and predispositions of federal judges. The outcome should instead depend on the commitments and beliefs of the President and those who operate under him," argued Sunstein.


Sunstein has argued, “We should celebrate tax day.”[24] Sunstein argues that since government (in the form of police, fire departments, insured banks, and courts) protects and preserves property and liberty, individuals should happily finance it with their tax dollars.

Actually, I have something else I'd like to say, and I'm sure some of the cunts here will go ape shit. You've been influenced to hate Muslims since 9/11, and even before that, they were always portrayed in the media, as people bordering on being lunatics. Can't you see by now, the the Mujhadeen are us?! These are the last people on earth fighting for freedom. I'm not talking about American payrolled thugs destroying Libya and Syria. I'm talking about the run of the mill guys who've been gunning down Yankee oppressors these past 10 years. You hate these people, and they're the only ones fighting for all our freedom. You all are just too fucking stupid to see it. Go back to sleep and do the Kike's bidding, you buncha fucking cattle.

The Jews are skating on thin ice. Its only a matter of time before someone gets pissed off enough, and borrows a tactic out of their own playbook to use against them. Say, someone sets off a bomb somewhere, or guns down a buncha people, and takes credit for it, but calls themselves some sort of Israeli defence organization, and claims the american's aren't doing enough for them, blah, blah, blah. In about 30 nanoseconds, Jews everywhere would see the gigs up, and the Goyim gravytrain has left without them. Fucking parasites.

So, though there are good Jews, I don't have to give a shit about them at this point in time. There are destroying my country, and more than that, they are destroying a beacon of hope for humanity, even though it may have never been true.So why don't you go fuck yourself, you spineless little cunt.

He is only on his side. I highly doubt he would sacrifice a gram for anyone.

Jews are NOT solely responsible for ongoing train wreck.                                                       

Sadly, repeatedly so, Jewish people are a higher percentage of those in "power" 

making decisions which hinder all. They are but elevated puppets, who shall

What are you talking about? You needn't worry that I'm a Jew. I most definitely am not, though I do have some Jew friends in Israel. Don't hate any type of people, but, as a group, if they fuck up something as big as my country, I'll be the first to say "kick them out". No death is needed. Just get them the fuck out of the country. Let them all go to their promised land, and lets cut off all their aid too. Or aid the Palestinians to an equal degree, and let them do to each other as they please.

Pardon me, but those examples you listed are offensive shots. What you are trying to say is you would commit those acts in a way as to not be blamed for it. That is a different situation and story.

Jew York Times?

Just one of the many evil tentacles of this evil beast.

Every real concerned patented Soul should be ticked off that they are and have been used to implement this grand Utopia for the gains of a few that would kill off the entire hive/herd/lodge/club/fraternity/country/etc in the land in the final days after using so many to do so much dirty work. Who paid the armies of mercenaries that are training right now to go yard-farming across America after the well planned collapse? More and more we see the telling horrors described in the Protocols coming closer to true every day.

“GENTILE masonry blindly serves as a screen for us and our objects, but the plan of action of our force, even its very abiding-place, remains for the whole people an unknown mystery.” (The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, 4:2)

What does "unknown mystery" mean? Hummmmmm....

One of the most revealing documents ever to be astonished by is here. It has to be taken a little bit at a time to research. Do they own the JeW YorK TimeS too?

Thanks for your good and strong input CF.

The “Protocols” is one of the most shocking documents I've ever read. It seems that nothing can stop the agenda that was laid out by these men. Everything that was prophesied has come true. That is pretty disturbing.

The Protocols, while being an accurate description of control, is not necessarily a Jewish only plot.  Note that the Protocols are proposed to be dated 1905 while Dialogue Between Montesquieu and Machiavelli is dated 1864.  If this be true, then Protocols are plagarized M&M.  There was also the "Banker's Manifesto" which is basically plagarized Protocols.

My point is that the methods for controlling empires are not new in the last two centuries and neither are these exclusively Jewish.  It is tempting to accept the Protocols as absolute truth escpecially when they match so well actual conditions.  But please, research some of the other things I have discussed and bring your education to a greater depth.

The current exploit known as the USA is controlled by both Gentiles and Jews although Jews seem to be more visible at seats of corruption.

According to Brother Nathanael (who is Jewish), "The Dialogue Between Montesquieu and Machiavelli" was "plagiarized" from the “Rothschild’s Blueprint” for world domination. The blueprint was created in 1763, and The Protocols reads the same as Rothschild’s blueprint. “The Dialogue” was a satire based on the Rothschild’s blueprint.

Always look at the ethnicity of the source, and the money trail, and all becomes clear. Look at the sources co-authors, and related works as well. Always an interesting exercise of joining the dots of who they are working with. And in this case, why they have an enduring fascination with disemboweling the US constitution and all legal protections. Always do that with all authors promoting books about armed-rebellion etc., against the state, and you'll keep finding this same thing, the very same ethnicity and money supply behind it, almost every time.

These people constantly want to incite real-citizens to directly fight with the police or military authorities - so don't ever fall for that.

What these people really don't want is for the citizens to detect them, and clearly understand who these agent-provocateurs are, that are inciting such action, and increased social breakdown, dysfunction and stupidity. Attacking police or army or making silly attacks against buildings or mere symbols is always what they're promoting, or always indirectly pushing people toward.

But if citizens wise-up to that aim, then that ethnicity will most probably go ahead and do it themselves, anyway.

They'll just be sure to blame it on "home-grown" radicalization (which they have actually promoted). You can see it all coming from a mile off. It isn't the citizens in general who want any police-state, or who want to see any breakdown in public-order, or constitutional processes. I'm confidently guessing real American citizens don't want any part of that - at all!

So the question is; are people going to fully realize what's going on here? Before it gets out of hand? Because for sure these people are going to take actions to try and accelerate chaos and sew breakdown in society, via division, from here.

I think we need to understand also that this ethnicity aren't just manipulating the average citizen. They're also concurrently manipulating and undermining the Police and Government itself. To corrupt it further, and make meaningless all processes, to make sure the sense of responsibility and accountability to a constitution, and to basic norms, are all systematically destroyed and belittled, and render and considered impractical or defunct.

So why help them to do any of that?

If people aren't fully-aware of who the enemy is, by now, they're really in trouble, and it's the police and government that also need to understand this, just as much as anyone else.

While you're certainly right in necessity to disclose related facts and mechanisms of deception, one should keep in mind that the coin has two sides. Projecting the problem solely to the 'outside enemy' would be a big mistake and yet another self-deception. More than a half of the problem lies within us who have allowed them for getting away with doing that, often unnoticed. It starts with negligence and overlooking minor, almost invisible, frauds, deception, and manipulation. Once we get used to accepting it, it becomes a new norm upon which more monstrous lies and frauds can be adopted. Other problem is the natural corruptibility of our 'goyim' representatives. Those people are often not being driven by anything else but personal career, selfishness, or greed, missing any wider picture of their mission. Needless to say (in addition to often demonstrated incompetence to manage professional affairs they are getting paid for) no one can be more manipulable. To put it very simply, we have a herd of incompetent, scared and disoriented sheep each trying either to fool itself that nothing is happening, or to escape while grabbing maximum of profit for itself; surrounded by the flock of wolves that have a wider picture and know exactly what they are doing.

This example, however, is just illustrative and not accurate as it could induce a feeling of some sort of fatal predestination, which would certainly not be true. The sheep inside us can transform to a human being. The true enemy is not the Jewish conspiracy but our fear, our not-acting, our negligence. It this weren't a problem we wouldn't have any problem at all. While grabbing information is necessary it is not sufficient; an additional homework has to be done. In fact, there is nothing to be scared of except our fear itself. Although, saying 'wake up’ is certainly easier said than done the gradual realization of both sides of the problem and appropriate acting can help move on further.

Without the US standing guard, Israel gets flattened in about 2 weeks.  So I have trouble understanding what the motive for this conspiracy could be.  In fact, without the US standing guard about a dozen hot spots become shooting wars.  So I believe, if there is a UN agenda, it is that the US will become the enforcement arm of the world government.

I am the People, the Mob
by Carl Sandburg   

I am the people—the mob—the crowd—the mass.
Do you know that all the great work of the world is done through me?
I am the workingman, the inventor, the maker of the world's food and
I am the audience that witnesses history. The Napoleons come from me
     and the Lincolns. They die. And then I send forth more Napoleons
     and Lincolns.
I am the seed ground. I am a prairie that will stand for much plowing.
     Terrible storms pass over me. I forget. The best of me is sucked out
     and wasted. I forget. Everything but Death comes to me and makes
     me work and give up what I have. And I forget.
Sometimes I growl, shake myself and spatter a few red drops for history
     to remember. Then—I forget.
When I, the People, learn to remember, when I, the People, use the
     lessons of yesterday and no longer forget who robbed me last year,
     who played me for a fool—then there will be no speaker in all the
     world say the name: "The People," with any fleck of a sneer in his
     voice or any far-off smile of derision.
The mob—the crowd—the mass—will arrive then.

Sandburg can be spotty politically (he was a Lincoln hagiographer) but he's got some good insights and speaks with a certain immediacy.


A snippet from another example. It's like he's talking to us about the present day.


The Man in the street is fed - by Carl Sandburg - 1936

The man in the street it fed
with lies in peace, gas in war,
and he may live now
just around the corner from you
trying to sell
the only thing he has to sell,
the power of his hand and brain
to labor for wages, for pay,
for cash of the realm.

And there are no takers, he can't connect.
Maybe he says, "Some pretty good men are on the street."
Maybe he says, "I'm just a palooka... all washed up."
Maybe he's a wild kid ready for his first stickup.
Maybe he's bummed a thousand miles and has a diploma.
Maybe he can take whatever the police can hand him,
Too many of him saying in their own wild way,
"The worst they can give you is lead in the guts."

its time for fundamental change to the constitution  - in its present form it doesnt work !

the underlying reason in my view is the form of Representative Democracy is a ticket to organized Fraud.

the system should be changed to Direct Democracy with penalties for non-participation by the citizens

criminals run the show today - they recognize that the job - in congress and the administration is a ticket to steal. The USA is now sending troops to 35 countries in Africa to open new frontiers for war and death - the MIC is out of control because there is no draft for the people to share the pain so no one cares about the killing.

without direct democracy and a draft the usa is in a perpetual state of organized crime

It's not sad at all but quite rational. After all, what is in your heart is not the same as what's in mine.   What you consider a sin I may consider fun.  What  you consider right I may consider wrong.   The Constitution provides a framework for governing but more importantly its purpose is to protect the individual from the State through a series of checks and balances. This is why even despotic nations go through the motions of having a document that enshrines rights.

What is really sad is that we have to have a piece of paper to tell us what should be self evident and universal and written in our hearts



"We live in a very low state of the world, and pay unwilling tribute to governments founded on force. There is not, among the most religious and instructed men of the most religious and civil nations, a reliance on the moral sentiment, and a sufficient belief in the unity of things to persuade them that society can be maintained without artificial restraints, as well as the solar system; or that the private citizen might be reasonable, and a good neighbour, without the hint of a jail or a confiscation." -- Emerson's Politics

It's true that there should really be no need of "a piece of paper".   But, in an imperfect world it does serve as a tangible "Anchor" to which men can refer ... and upon which they can base their moral code.


If you consider the situation in England ... where there is no clear written Constitution ... the political class has free rein to "make it up as they go along".  


The little guy cannot challenge them and say, "Look, we can show by Reason that your actions are immoral."  because he has no platform. Much easier to be able to point to a "revered" document and say, "These things are forbidden."


So, I'm saying that you are much, much better served by having your written Constitution ... than the alternative.

I read the article, and here is brilliant rhetoric this buffoon uses to make his argument:

1.  The reason the country is so fucked up is our OBEDIENCE to the constitution.

2.  Getting rid of the constiution won't be so bad because our government has already ingnored it (that is , DISOBEYED IT!) numerous times in the past (and, gives numerous examples).

I guess he never considered the possiblity that our country is so fucked up precisely because our government has ignored the Constitution so many times, not because is has obeyed it sometimes.

What a fucking idiot.

You have just described in 1 brief statement the (lack of a) brain of a Statist.

Excellent point, Doomer.

The profiteer professor is tied up in his own contradictions. Hey ho. He's paid well to serve foreign ideas, and the New Jerk Times likes him.

Indeed. We are already in a "post-Constiutional" America, as some wise men have noted.

An amicable separation of the legitimate Constitutional Republic, the red counties, from the blue urban alchemic utopias seems to be the most prudent path forward.

The alternative would seem to be complete destruction.

There is the problem of legislatures acting together being allowed to amend the Constitution, which is written in the Constitution - the creations modifying the creator as the Founders argued the issue. That process needs to be rewritten for sure.

Problem is that his goal is to turn the US into a crap hole like North Korea, Syria, or Egypt.

1. People like him are the reason I cling to my ****. 2. His statement is treason against the Republic which is punishable by *****

The snivelling profiteer...err professor...backs a CONgress that wages endless war, so I say he should get what he gives: a bullet or more, metaphorically speaking, allegedly, PC bullshit etc.

He is a snivelling coward who undermines the Constitution which protects him, so long as better men die for his right to write.

He is filth, a traitor.

There's too many of us for "Big Brother" to handle.  Not sure if you've ever seen a member of the despot's regime, but most of them are affirmative-action types. They'd have a hard time telling you how many sides a triangle has.
