John Sargent 1921 (Wikipedia)
Imagine having to walk out into a pit of vipers every day – the mixture of colors before you blending into a kaleidoscope that is highlighted by the sun like spots in the room. The hissing of the venomous hypnotic mixture working every sound of soothsaying to bring you closer, closer for them to wrap a coil or two around you and inflict you with a rapid bite of insidiousness. A quick response and one of heads of this emerged Hydra falls to floor with immediate screeches that cause the head to reproduce two fold. Yes, this is the environment that Sean Spicer walks into daily. What causes this den to slither and shriek now when it was tamely at rest for as many as eight to fifteen years?
The complex answer has to do with the advances that those who do not respect or desire our Constitutional Republic have made in the seats of bureaucratic operations. I know, you lift your eyebrow at that answer. The reality is that for almost two generations we have not educated our children in any actual concepts of what a Constitutional Republic is let alone how it should operate. Worse, the den of vipers and their litters are the direct products of the national academic milieu of antithesis imbued with Hegelian Dialectics. In other words, they don’t know, understand or desire to know Founders Constitutional Intent. Therefore when the slightest semblance of Constitutionalism enters the field, the vipers’ nests are threatened and respond with all that is seen in every Spicer press briefing.
How to clean out this crowd of venomous creatures. My simplest solution is to have them take a Constitutional seminar to temper some of the deep seated disdain for what the United States is. The reality that most so called journalist schools are managed and controlled by socialists if not out right Marxists in known by all who honestly investigate. My answer to those wanting to participate in briefings need to understand that the Administration has a Constitutional duty to perform and they need to get educated with Founders Intent for the operation of the Republic. I’m not sure if Spicer could do this but, I’d tell those wanting into the den that seating will be arranged according to proof of those holding a certificate proving they completed 60 hours of Constitutional education from the perspective of Founders Intent.
I will list my recommendations for this training at the end of this statement. By the Way, Samuel Adams understood the corruption of the mainstream press such that he started his own newspaper.
The treachery at every turn in the various bureaucratic departments reporting to the President has a very simple answer: Loyalty to the Constitution.
In doing some simple research, it is made very evident that ‘All Federal Civil Servants Shall swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution.’ The following is from the Federal Employee Data information:
“As Federal civil servants, we take an oath of office by which we swear to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. The Constitution not only establishes our system of government, it actually defines the work role for Federal employees – “to establish Justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty.”
The history of the Oath for Federal employees can be traced to the Constitution, where Article II includes the specific oath the President takes – to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Article VI requires an oath by all other government officials from all three branches, the military, and the States. It simply states that they “shall be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution.” The very first law passed by the very first Congress implemented Article VI by setting out this simple oath in law: “I do solemnly swear or affirm (as the case may be) that I will support the Constitution of the United States.”
The wording we use today as Executive Branch employees is now set out in chapter 33 of title 5, United States Code.
TITLE 5, PART III, Subpart B, CHAPTER 33, SUBCHAPTER II, § 3331
Oath of office
An individual, except the President, elected or appointed to an office of honor or profit in the civil service or uniformed services, shall take the following oath: “I, ———-, 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.”
My point here is that each Federal employee should be required to re-swear or affirm this oath. In conjunction with this and because we have not properly taught the Constitution since the mid 1800’s, the employees shall attend the 60 hours training. If an employee refuses either, then they are not eligible to remain employed.
The common answer for much of what is going on in the US today is that we have not properly taught our Foundational Truths. Heck, a 5th grader in 1829 was smarter on the full function of the Constitution then the judges on the 9th Circuit Court. Arthur Stansbury, in 1828 compiled the “Elementary Catechism on the Constitution of the United States for the use of Schools.” I am updating the comprehensive text that I have given to Legislators and lawyers to see if they could answer all the questions. Nope, most missed more than 50%.
Now, after exhaustive research and review of Constitutional education my list is as follows:
Number 3: Hillsdale College online studies. They are free but they don’t have the quality student to instructor interaction I believe necessary to comprehend our Constitutional Republic.
Number 2: The Institute on The Constitution. They have a Great DVD series that can be facilitated well by knowledgeable person.
Number 1: Thomas Jefferson Center for Constitutional Studies. “Healing of America Series.” This is the best well-rounded and fully historically correct program that I’ve seen or participated in.
Now, let’s Make America Great Again by having a society that understands what the Founders Intended for a Great Constitutional Republic.
