There is nothing patriotic about the “Patriot Act!”  In fact, it is unpatriotic to SUSPEND any part of the U.S. Constitution.  Congressional members who suspend, circumvent or usurp the Constitution violate their sworn oath.  Congressional members swore to UPHOLD,  Defend, and Preserve the U.S. Constitution, not dismantle it and make constitutional law unavailable to the American people.  In addition, it won’t be long before America will light up the sky with dazzling fireworks across this great nation’s skies as Americans plan for the Declaration of Independence celebration held on the 4th of July!  But, for the first time in 235 years, there is a real concern ringing out across the nation as the bell rings out, “Let Freedom Ring.”  Unfortunately, more Americans are concerned that our freedoms are being denied once again as congress extended the Patriot Act.  For 11 years, congress has suspended parts of  the Constitution of the United States of America and replaced constitutional law with new law titled the “Patriot Act,” rendering Americans unprotected by constitutional law.  Suspended laws are not active in the courts or recognized by law enforcement.  Yet, Americans will celebrate the joy of remembering the day when our Forefathers signed the U.S. Declaration of Independence.  But, I can’t help but wonder how is it that a foreign anti-American nation who attacked America on 9/11/2001  is given the satisfaction of knowing that parts of the U.S. constitution is suspended while they are free to live under their laws without restrictions and demand freedom, liberty, and rights in America!

Furthermore, Article I Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution refers only to a Writ of Habeas Corpus and only the Habeas Corpus can be suspended but ONLY during a period of National Emergency and only if the National Emergency involves a “rebellion” (civil unrest) or an “invasion,” but that wasn’t the case in 2001 and it isn’t the case in 2011.  So, under which constitutional authority is the U.S. Congress implementing a new law to replace parts of U.S. Constitutional law by suspending parts of the U.S. Constitution rendering those specific constitutional laws “meaningless?” How is it congress is allowing the “Patriot Act” to supersede U.S. Constitutional law which is a violation of constitutional law, a violation of  the Sworn Oath upon a public servant accepting public office; and a violation of  a public servant’s  fiduciary duty. In other words, there is no authority under U.S. Constitutional law that allows Congress to suspend any part of the Constitution and replace those laws with new laws.  In fact, that would have been called an act of “treason” for any public servant to usurp, circumvent or change and replace constitutional law with new law that supersedes the unconstitutionally suspended laws.

In 2008, I viewed candidate, senator Obama, during a debate.  Obama shocked me when he stated, the U.S. Constitution was meaningless and no more than  a “mere charter of negative laws [liberties] that need to be changed.”  His disrespect for the constitution should have been quite disturbing to Americans, but his words only affected a few of us.  Recently, the U.S. Congress has unconstitutionally suspended parts of the U.S. Constitution by extending the Patriot Act and replacing the suspended parts of the U.S. Constitution with the new law titled the Patriot Act under the guise of the “war on terrorism.”  Obviously, if  congress unconstitutionally suspends parts of U.S. Constitution, which are the supreme laws of the land, then the federal government has the power to violate individual rights guaranteed by the constitution as the laws they suspended would not be recognized as laws of the land rendering the original constitutional laws as worthless and meaningless.  So, how is it possible that U.S. Presidents and U.S. Congressional members have misled the American people into believing that the Patriot Act was temporary, but allowed it to remain in effect for 11 years?  Once again, congress has suspended parts of the constitution, which violates their sworn oaths.  Public Servants swear to uphold, defend, and preserve the U.S. Constitution.  The supportive vote to replace constitutional law with the Patriot Act  has caused adverse side effects to every American citizen by denying them specific individual rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution as intended.  Thus, the question remains which constitutional authority is congress applying that allows them the constitutional authority to SUSPEND the constitution?  Did they just wake up one morning and say – “Gee, I think I’ll vote to suspend parts of the constitution and replace parts of it with new laws and leave the American people unprotected and vulnerable to legal abuses?”

Only when the American people wake up and demand that congress nullifies the Patriot Act and restores constitutional law will the American people regain the protections of individual rights and due process of law as guaranteed by the constitution, but until then, every American is vulnerable to legal abuses.

Therefore, we must ask the U.S. Congress under which constitutional authority are they applying that provides them the authority to write a new law under the guise of  “war on terrorism” and REPLACE parts of the U.S. Constitution with the new law titled, The Patriot Act.”   In fact, such unethical actions by federal elected public servants should be seen as a violation of their sworn oaths as well as their fiduciary duty to the people, country, and their pledge of allegiance to the U.S. flag.  If the war on terrorism requires suspending the constitution then why didn’t former members of congress apply the same action when they declared the “war on drugs” and the “war on guns” and the “war on human trafficking?”

Every U.S. federal public servant who stood before God and country swore an oath to UPHOLD, DEFEND, and PRESERVE the U.S. Constitution!  The U.S. Constitution cannot be suspended by elected public servants, but that’s exactly what they’ve been doing since 9/11 by using the “war on terror” to “change” America and “change” the U.S. Constitution rendering it “meaningless and replacing constitutional law with the “Patriot Act” which in my opinion could be interpreted by constitutional law as treason.

The U.S. Declaration of Independence was signed by our Forefathers on July 4, 1776, but they suffered as they fought against the elite powers who lusted for total power and control over the masses.  The U.S.  Constitution was created, approved, and enacted, so the people could ELECT public servants who would carry out the will of the people and provide a government controlled by the people and for the people, but 235 years later, Americans find themselves misled by temporary federal, state, county, and city elected public servants who are circumventing and usurping constitutional laws, so they can control the masses, who are helpless and left without the specific guarantees of individual rights and due process of law.

Consequently, we must demand that Obama and Congress disclose which constitutional authority they are applying to REPLACE all or parts of the U.S. Constitution with NEW Law titled “The Patriot Act” under the guise of the “war on terror?   Obama and the U.S. Congress do not have the legal or constitutional authority to write new laws and REPLACE or SUSPEND any or parts of the U.S. Constitution under the supreme laws of the land.  Suspending any part of the U.S. Constitution is a violation of their SWORN OATHS and violates their fiduciary duty.  They swore to UPHOLD, defend, and preserve the constitution.  Public servants promise to pledge their allegiance to the U.S.  flag, America, U.S. military, and to the American people, but they seem more concerned to pledging their allegiance to a globalist agenda and dismantling the U.S. Constitution and our sovereignty and individual rights.

Also, The Patriot Act is not written and implemented in accordance with the constitution or the will of the people.  In fact, the Patriot Act is contrary to the U.S Constitution and was enacted against the will of the people who do not see it as a common sense law, just, moral or fair. The Congress has a fiduciary duty to pass common sense laws which are just, moral or fair.  U.S. laws must be written in accordance with the constitution and the will of the people.  Congress has a sworn duty to remain ethical and honest.  So, which constitutional authority is Obama and the U.S. Congress applying that provides them the authority to SUSPEND any part of the U.S. Constitution when they swore an oath to UPHOLD, defend, and protect the U.S. Constitution?  It is clear that any public servant who attempts to circumvent, usurp, or replace the U.S. Constitution by writing new laws and replacing constitutional laws with those new laws is in violation of their sworn oath.   The law states that if a public servant violates their sworn oath. circumvents or usurps constitutional law, they can be charged with a crime by the people and if found guilty, they can be punished and ordered to prison and fined.

How is it that America has been involved in many wars, but until 9/11,  U.S. Presidents and the U.S. Congress did not SUSPEND the U.S. Constitution?  In fact, there isn’t any constitutional authority to my knowledge which grants constitutional authority to elected federal public servants to SUSPEND the U.S. Constitution and replace constitutional law with new laws, based on wars.   If the constitution were to be suspended every time America had gone to war then it would have been in suspension continuously throughout U.S. history.    The fact that Obama and Congress extended the “Patriot Act” equates to their declaring that the “Patriot Act” supersedes constitutional law based on their declaration that parts of the U.S. Constitution have been [unconstitutionally] suspended.  In fact, Obama stated he wants the “Patriot Act” extended through 2013.

How then is it that the U.S. Congress believes it is part of their SWORN oath and their fiduciary duty to uphold the constitution, and hypocritically without constitutional authority and against the will of the people SUSPEND any or all parts of the U.S. Constitution by writing a new law with a new name titled, “The Patriot Act” under the guise of protecting the American people from the war on terror which leaves Americans without individual rights guaranteed by constitutional law?  Suspending constitutional law forces Americans to face the dragon without a sword!

Thus, Americans are misled by congress when they mislead Americans that suspending  parts of the U.S. Constitution is for the protection of the American people and targets the terrorists when they haven’t even captured any significant number of  terrorists, but target Americans and label conservative, patriotic, Christians as terrorists.  Replacing parts of the U.S. Constitution with the Patriot Act is unconstitutional and violates the sworn oaths of every congressional member who swore to UPHOLD the Constitution, not Suspend the Constitution.  In a Meet The Press interview back in 2008, Obama stated that his goal was to Disarm Americans, but the only way to Disarm Americans is to suspend the U.S. Constitution and make it “meaningless” and “change” it.

Therefore, I continue to ask the question, “Under which constitutional authority is Obama and the U.S. Congress legally and constitutionally applying that provides them the authority to SUSPEND any part of the Constitution of the United States of America?  I believe they have abused their power and are misleading Americans into believing that they have the authority to SUSPEND the U.S. Constitution, but they do not.  But, they are trampling and suspending individual rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.  It’s not the fiduciary duty of Obama or Congress to usurp, circumvent, or by-pass constitutional law by re-writing new laws and replacing the constitution OR ANY PART  of the constitution with their new laws even during war-time.  Americans have fought many wars before 9/11 and presidents and congress never violated their sworn oaths to uphold the constitution by suspending the Constitution of the United States of America.   So, can the Sheriff’s decide on a whim to suspend the laws of their states?  Remember, the Patriot Act was passed more than one decade ago – 11 years ago – and the American people were led to believe under Bush that it was a temporary Act, but so far, that isn’t the case and they lied to the American people.  Aren’t lies and misrepresentation violations of their Code of Ethics?  So, how is it not an abuse of power and an obstruction of justice for the U.S. Congress and Obama to violate their sworn oaths when they swore to UPHOLD, DEFEND, and PRESERVE the U.S. Constitution which they failed to do by extending the Patriot Act?  Americans must ask where in the U.S. Constitution does Obama or Congress interpret that they’ve been granted the authority to SUSPEND any or all of the U.S. Constitution for more than one decade rendering Americans unprotected by the supreme laws of the land and vulnerable to tyranny?

Remember, history warns people what happens if they don’t pay attention to their government.  Americans shouldn’t stand by and allow public servants to circumvent, usurp or attempt to replace the U.S. Constitution with foreign or new laws against the will of  people.  Suspending the U.S. Constitution with a new law titled “The Patriot Act” means that those laws don’t exist for Americans – they’re in suspension – the people have no protection under suspended constitutional laws.  The constitution clearly establishes that no man or congressional body shall usurp, circumvent, or replace the supreme laws of the land.   The Patriot Act has replaced the protection of  Search and Seizure laws guaranteed by the constitution so that the federal government can create police states.  They are allowing law enforcement to knock down the doors of innocent Americans without a Search Warrant.  This is an increasing problem for Americans.  There are reports of accidental shootings after law enforcement broke down doors and injured or killed innocent people and destroyed property, but congress cares less knowing law enforcement writes up legal abuses as “justifiable” and “probable cause.”  Lives are being destroyed.

Another example recurring after the Patriot Act was implemented, and constitutional laws are unconstitutionally suspended, involves Rapiscan and TSA.  Obama promised stimulus money for private sector jobs, but instead, he diverted millions of dollars to Chertoff so he and Soros could fund their private corporate radiation, naked photograph, intrusive groping business through TSA using every American baby, minor child, teenager, and adult man and woman as commodities for-profit – Wall Street Human Capital!

This should lead people to wonder how many politicians are invested in the corporations which they’ve allowed funding from the stimulus tax dollars promised for U.S. jobs, but were never delivered. How can the U.S. Congress stand by and watch innocent Americans be radiated which kills healthy cells  – naked photographed – and physically groped by non-health care professionals? Does congress even care if Rapiscan owners are violating the 4th Amendment; or  Sexual Harassment laws, Child Molesting Laws, Rape Laws, and Assault and Battery laws?  Also, if TSA workers don’t need medical training and health care licenses as well as Medical State Board licenses then it appears we no longer need doctors or the State Boards – TSA is a one-stop health care facility for all your intrusive health care needs!  Ironically, even a hair dresser has to have a license before she touches a customer!

Consequently, under which constitutional authority is Obama and congress applying that provides them the authority to send police into the businesses of innocent Americans and ravish through their business records?  Are you sure this is still America?  Under which constitutional authority is congress applying to allow police to examine the library records of any innocent American? Is this Nazi America or is it Sharia Law America or Communist China America – as it doesn’t feel much like the land of the free!

Under which constitutional law is the government throwing people into jail without due process of law even if they’re innocent and without search warrants and throwing away the key indefinitely?  Is this Cuba or some Third World nation, now?  How is it constitutional as there are allegations that the president can issue a “kill” order aka “assassination” order against even American citizens and under which constitutional authority is being applied?

The United States Constitution cannot be suspended by President Obama or by the U.S. Congress!  If the U.S. Constitution or any parts of the U.S. Constitution is suspended then isn’t the  U.S. President and Congress in violation of their sworn oath to UPHOLD, DEFEND, and PRESERVE the Constitution?  After all, there’s NO SWORN OATH that grants public servants the authority to SUSPEND or DENY or ELIMINATE all or part of the U.S. Constitution, in fact, the Forefathers established the Constitution so those who violated the Constitution could be held accountable by the American people.  Public Servants, not only have a SWORN oath to UPHOLD the constitution, but a fiduciary duty to the country and the people, as well as an allegiance to the U.S. flag.

In conclusion, under which constitutional authority has Obama and the Congress applied that grants them the authority to allow a new law, The Patriot Act, to supersede the supreme laws of the land guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution?  And under which constitutional authority is Obama and the Congress applying that grants them the constitutional authority to SUSPEND the U.S. Constitution or any parts of the U.S. Constitution and write a new law that REPLACES the suspended constitutional laws rendering the U.S. Constitution “meaningless” and “changed” which is Obama’s goal as well as the globalists who are supporting the economic growth of communist China.

The Patriot Act provides the federal government “UNLIMITED” power knowing that the U.S. Constitution provides the federal government “Limited” power.  So, when did the sworn oaths of federal public servants change from “Uphold” the Constitution to “Suspend” the Constitution?   Write congress and demand that the Patriot Act be rendered  “null and void” immediately.  The U.S. Constitution has been preserved because of generational Americans who shed their blood, sweat, and tears and  made this country free, liberated, sovereign and great -235 years of loyalty – So,  SHAME ON  CONGRESS!

Remember, there is nothing patriotic about the Patriot Act!  In fact, it is unpatriotic and dictatorial and dripping with tears trickling down by our Forefathers in heaven.   Well, bin Laden is dead according to Obama who had an unarmed man assassinated and dumped his body into the ocean which the Muslim news referred to as an unholy burial of a Muslim leader.  So at that point the “Patriot Act,” should have ended, but instead, they seem to have dumped the U.S. Constitution into the ocean and extended the “Patriot Act” as the law of the land which should result in the removal of public servants.  As everyone knows, the Magna Carte is  the “important symbol that shows that the King was bound by the law.”  Well, King Obama needs to be bound by U.S. Constitutional law, as well.   The Magna Carte was the spark that caused men to fight back and create the Constitution of the United States of America.  The Declaration of Independence was signed by our Forefathers on July 4, 1776, which set forth the ideas of  Natural Rights and helped form the foundation of constitutional government that would protect and defend the individual rights of the people and provide a government controlled by the people and for the people, not for elected public servants who now believe the people must be brought under the control of the federal government to serve them.  The only protection that the American people have against tyranny is the Constitution of the United States of America and the Bill of Rights!  Will you stand up to the U.S. Congress and demand that congress UPHOLD the U.S. Constitution and nullify “The Patriot Act” which they have unconstitutionally suspended – all or parts of a suspended constitution results in the dismantling of the U.S. constitution!  A country with a suspended Constitution results in a nation without constitutional laws – laws that are meaningless – in suspension – unprotected citizens  –  citizens who are vulnerable to tyranny by their own government.  And, the “Patriot Act” will lead to a free nation known as the United States of America if not voided to turn into a nation that is  unprotected and subjected to violations of  individual constitutional rights – **Note: This article may be shared but not Plagiarized by a Third Party.
