So congress read the Constitution: Well, isn’t that special

Marti Oakley, Contributing Writer
Activist Post

I tried watching the swearing in of the new House for the 112th Congress.  I couldn’t stand it.  Standing on the steps outside the House, was one of the greatest collections of career liars, thieves and thugs ever publicly assembled, sprinkled with a few new-comers who probably believe they are actually going to affect a change in the District of Criminals.

By the end of January, these newbies will have been thoroughly indoctrinated and will have had the law laid down to them about how things really work in the District. The newbies will resurface along about February with their talking points memo’s in hand and will dutifully be spouting the party line and will have totally dismissed any notions they may have had about “changing” the way the District does business.

Next I tried to watch the changing of the Speaker of the House. In these moments I am always amazed at the ability of the players to stand in front of not only the House members, but the American public thanks to all the camera’s present, and to deliver vacant and pointless speeches, the words of which sound like they should mean something . . . but really don’t.

Nancy Pelosi had the gall to speak about defending the Constitution.  This from a woman who has single-handedly violated the provisions of that document on so many occasions it is staggering.  Now she thinks the Constitution should be defended.  Apparently Ms. Pelosi suffers from some form of congressional alzheimers or maybe she just has selective memory.


John Boehner took the gavel as he assumed his new position as speaker and talked about “openness, transparency and honesty”. Words I believe were taken from Obama’s now infamous remarks during his campaign.  Yeah…..I’ll be looking for John to deliver on that one.

The grand coup’ in all of this, the zinger meant to incite the public, to make the American people believe was a new day with new leadership that was really going to listen to the American people and a leadership that held the Constitution in high regard, promising to uphold it at all times …….was the reading of the Constitution on the floor of the House.  While this reading of America’s most historical and profoundly important document was read, congress men and women chatted with one another and I believe a few might have napped.

Not one congressmen, not the outgoing speaker or the incoming speaker, said one word about repealing any of the egregious assaults on Constitutional rights and protections that were contained in numerous pieces of legislation that they themselves, in many instances, voted to pass
Having watched these stage shows put on by both the House and Senate for more years than I care to admit, I was none-the-less taken back by the unmitigated gall, the phony posturing, the vacant speeches and remarks that were capped with the reading of the Constitution.  Call me cynical, but I get the uneasy feeling this was some kind of insider joke.  Maybe this is Congress’s idea of fun.  I don’t know.

Here’s what I do know:  We have allowed ourselves repeatedly to be conned by people we elect to office.  We believe the speeches and the declarations, but once they are in office, they forget who they work for.  Or maybe they never had any intentions of working for us to begin with.

The truth of the matter is that no matter what their intentions, corporations, lobbyists and other forces that we are just now learning about pull the strings.  The fact is, we are subsidizing a political body that has ceased to be anything other than the facilitators for corporate takeover of all parts of our lives while subjecting us to agreements with foreign governments, international bodies and foreign organizations, populated by people who have no interest in seeing this country thrive and survive.

My question is this:  Why do we continue to pay them?

After all, if you look at the money trail attached to each and every bill you see that they all garner millions in funding from the corporations who run the government; a donation no doubt meant to influence their votes.

I did not hear the out going speaker or the new speaker make any mention of ending this influence buying by corporations, and it was never mentioned either before or after the reading of the Constitution.

Speeches and vacant promises aside, there will be no change in the District of Criminals.  The only thing that has changed is “who holds the gavel”.

Unfortunately Marti - you just don't understand what is actually happening on the planet - you are simply caught up in the designed controversy of politics just as planned - a dog and pony smoke and mirror magic show distracting you with politics, away from the real issues - death, dis-ease and destruction on planet earth -

You are rendered incompetent to be able to do anything - about anything, while ranting and raving about useless things of little or no significance - there are 2 constitutions - they don't use the one they gave you - just like webster dictionary - they don't use it
either -

They gave it to you, for you to use - to keep you thoroughly mixed up beyond belief - so you would be talking out of the side of your mouth to keep you confused - not knowing what you were actually saying - lying to yourself and to everyone else - not truly understanding what was going on in front of you -

That is why they look at you funny in a courtroom - they can't actually hear what you are saying out of your mouth - because they are all fiction ghosts having a party for the dead at your expense - their game won't work without your voluntary participation to make their play to steal your life look real - why are you doing it?

You need to dig much deeper into the underlying cause as to why you find yourself in a tizzy over politics - they can't help you - You have to find a way to help yourself - instead of big daddy and company stealing your life, while you are complicit in the crimes against humanity along with everyone else - expecting him to do it for you - complaining and bitching about something you helped to create in the first place -

You do not understand what is taking place right before your sleepy eyes - distracted away from the serious issue - peace on earth is the only way we are going to solve the problem - otherwise, you are made to get in a war with someone over your self righteous indoctrinated mind controlled structured belief system, with your sensitive volatile emotions - a psychological nightmare from hell on wheels - make no mistake about it.
