American Constitutional Originalism, Correctly and Incorrectly Applied

Our Original Constitution is a carefully written legal document that says very specific legal things. Originalism keeps it that way.

The Constitution is timeless; the words are not "malleable" or subject to new interpretations.

Amy Coney Barrett, Originalist Supreme Court Nominee
Lori Lightfoot, Chicago Marxocrat Dictator. I mean Mayor.

The error persists, on the Left and on the Right, that the Constitution has changed over time, and that those changes indicate the genius of the original authors, because they left us the amendment process by which to change it over time and make it suit new needs of new times.

That's bull crap. None of the Constitutional changes anyone is talking about came about through the amendment process. They came about through violations of the Constitution, which means that they came about through violations of solemnly sworn oaths of office.

Just look at the Constitution-castigating remarks of the anti-American mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, when asked about Amy Coney Barrett and her concept of Originalism.

"You ask a gay, black woman if she is an originalist? No, ma'am, I am not.

"That the Constitution didn't consider me a person in any way shape or form because I'm a woman, because I'm black, because I'm gay? I am not an originalist. I believe in the Constitution. I believe that it is a document that the founders intended to evolve and what they did was set the framework for how our country was going to be different from any other.

"But originalists say that, 'Let's go back to 1776 and whatever was there in the original language, that's it.' That language excluded, now, over 50 percent of the country. So, no I'm not an originalist"

Lori Lightfoot is a liar, of course. No words in the Constitution have changed. The fact that her lies might be born of stupidity do not alter the fact that they are lies. Responsible adults are supposed to know whereof they speak before they speak, especially on important matters. Lightfoot is a mayor of a major US city, so she can't be too oppressed as a Marxocrat queer black femi-Nazi in America.

Constitutionally, and therefor legally, the federal government is not free to address women's rights, racial rights or homosexual rights, one way or the other. They are state issues. They are out-of-scope for the federal government to address. What the Constitution and the federal government do indeed address is equality, as a Constitutional Right.

We just went over this in Religious Murderers of Souls and Political Murderers of Nations. Go there for the details of how "non-originalism" or "anti-originalism" turned our original American Christian morality on its head and made morality immoral, and immorality moral.

The fact is that the Constitution does not address feminine rights as opposed to everyone's rights, or black rights as opposed to everyone's rights, or queer rights as opposed to everyone's rights. But what it does and always did address was the single word Equality that does and always did apply, equally, to every American citizen.

Since feminists and blacks and queers and various other minorities have now acquired special legal rights above and beyond the equal rights granted everyone by the Constitution, Marxocrats and philosophically Communist anti-Ameircans like Lightfoot assume that those rights are granted by the "modern" or "reinterpreted" or "changed" Constitution, but they are not. As pointed out in the Murderers treatment, they are unconstitutionally and therefore illegally established in federal law. They are all state matters, and, Constitutionally, they cannot be made into a federal case of any kind. The words of the Constitution have not changed.

Anti-American over-educated supercilious pedants will argue that the Declaration's "all men are created equal" referred to men only and left out women. But if they cannot tell by contextual use whether the word "men" refers to the plural of "man", or to all mankind, they really need to go back to grammar school and start all over again.

So what we are looking at here is the undoing of representative federal government by direct violations of the Constitution and the oath of office. State issues were made into federal "laws" over all of America by means other than by amending the Constitution, and other than Congressional legislation signed by a President, and in spite of being out of Constitutional scope.

Laws binding on all American citizens, in all states, against their will.

"Laws" not legislated by Congress and not signed by a President.

  • Unconstitutional regulations with full force of law behind them issued by unelected, unrepresentative, unaccountable, nameless, faceless bureaucrats working inside unconstitutional bureaucracies that shouldn't even exist.
  • Unconstitutional legal precedents set by the Supreme Court in cases outside the Constitutional scope of the federal government that never even should have been entertained let alone finally adjudicated at the federal level.
  • Executive orders/actions by Presidents affecting matters outside the Constitutionally established scope of the federal government.

See Article One Section Eight of the Constitution for the limited and enumerated powers of the American federal government. If it isn't in there, you can't make a federal case out of it, short of amending the Constitution to do it.

What we are describing is how the now thoroughly Communist and anti-American Marxocrat Party is avoiding the will of the voters, by not allowing the citizenry to address issues they want to pass into law without any citizen representation. With full Republicrat Party cooperation.

you never saw nor will you ever see such topics as abortion, homo-marriage or socialized medicine on any ballot. Nor will you find any such subject in the limited and enumerated powers of the federal government.

So why do they exist in federal "law"?

When you answer that question, you will know why and how it came to be that, today, moral-immoral positions have flipped, as we see that:

  • Abortion is "moral", and anti-abortion is "immoral".
  • Homosexuality is "moral" and opposing it is "immoral".
  • Clintonian licentiousness is "moral"; criticism of it is "immoral".
  • White heterosexual Christian men have the least American civil rights.

This is, of course, quite stupid.

If our Political Parties cannot be that dumb then they must be that evil.

This is not the morality of America; it is the morality of the elites.

It is the New School, pseudo-sophisticated, Marxisxt-progressive, scientistic, pretend-morality of the self-promoting, self-adulating, over-educated, almost totally-impractical American and world elites. Degrees, honors and awards out the ying-yang, and can't hit themselves in the butt with both hands. Real stupidos wearing tuxedos.

And they violate the Constitution to impose their immoralities on all of America, against the will of we the people, avoiding whatever we have to say about it like the plague.

The elites are the swamp. In America, in the Church, in the world.


The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us

The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Print, sign and send The Letter, and make our Church Catholic again. 

Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII

"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor.  It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi

Atheist Genesis:

In the beginning there was nothing, and nothing happened to nothing.
And then nothing accidentally exploded and created everything.
And then some bits of everything accidentally encountered other bits of everything and formed some new kinds of everything.

And then some self-replicating bits of everything accidentally arranged themselves into dinosaurs.
