(The Raw Story)   Isn't taking part in a rally calling for "a Second American Revolution" a violation of the oath of office US congressmen take to "support and defend the Constitution"when they assume office? If so, Rep Franks (R-AZ) is in a heap of trouble   (rawstory.com) divider line 74

Klayman, who claims the president was likely born in Kenya, has been calling for an Egyptian-style coup of Obama and claims the president was convicted by a people's court in Florida of using a fake birth certificate to prove his eligibility for office.

Where is that goddamned asteroid?

And here's the huge Irony,  Klayman owes his entire livelihood to filing frivolous lawsuits against the US Government.   HIs organization, Judicial Watch, files thousands of FOIA requests every year, largely because they know that in the age of e-mail, the law is antiquated and it is impossible to produce " all records pertaining to" anything in the statutory 20-day period, so he can sue and have the US government pay his attorneys fees for doing so.

Franks, a rabidly anti-abortion and pro-gun lawmaker who's called the president "an enemy of humanity," will appear at the rally with former Republican Rep. Bob Barr, Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America and perennial candidate Alan Keyes.
Other scheduled speakers are anti-Muslim blogger Pam Geller, conspiracy theorists Joseph Farah of World Net Daily and Floyd Brown of Western Center for Journalism, Joseph Kaufman of the anti-Muslim Americans Against Hate, and anti-gay radio broadcaster Bradlee Dean.



Holy Crap, that is a DerpNado....

I don't understand why Obama refuses to sit down and negotiate with Republicans, but it is totally his fault. Clearly he is just being unreasonable.

You know sometimes it's really hard to argue that saying Republicans are America's greatest current threat is hyperbole

I don't know, subby... not to defend their rally or anything, but a "Defend the Second Amendment" rally by definition is "upholding the Constitution". Maybe this is some dividing by zero shiat?

If i were a Kenyan usurper turned supreme commander... well, lets just say they wouldn't be holding signs on a manicured lawn with smiles on their faces.

A column on World Net Daily, which has been publishing Klayman's calls for a "coup de Kenyan," compared the planned rally favorably to two recent demonstrations involving bikers and truckers in Washington, D.C.

So, this rally is made up and will never happen?

I think you're missing the "over throw the President because we think he was born in Kenya" part of the article.

If that's true then you'd better round up our friends Senators Cruz and Lee for doing the same thing during the shutdown They like palling around with Larry Klayman.

This times eleventy.

If things were really as awful as this brain trust pretends, they'd be met on Penn Avenue by two battalions of Marines and the 101st Airborne, followed by a Tiananmen Square style mop up.

Since they're all still alive, it's safe to assume things are not that bad yet.

You can oppose the President while still upholding and protecting the Constitution. "Overthrow" is a vague enough term ("I was speaking metaphorically!") that our probably doesn't meet the threshold of sedition. Calling for revolt or uprising probably crosses the line though.

Someone in DC needs to attend this "rally" and toss a pack of firecrackers into the middle of them then watch the fun as they all panic and shoot each other (or the cops panic and start shooting the teabaggers).

Please please please  please  please  please  please  please  please  please  please  please  please ...
 
2013-11-12 05:42:29 PM  
The only way to protect and defend the constitution is to pass laws to undermine it, therefor making it useless and worthless.

And who wants to steal or uphold or waste time on something so worthless?

So people will just leave it alone.

No, I saw that part. I was really just joking about it. I don't buy these guys' bullshiat for a minute, I just thought it was funny that he was 'defending' the very thing he wants to attack.

Take back power and then claim everyone else who isn't with them is a traitor.

This government was established on the principal that people should be free from the tyranny of government and that when government becomes oppressive it is the duty of the citizens to rise up against that tyranny. The American Revolution was fought over much less than the crap people are being subjected to now.

Lets see:
Patriot Act
Killing US citizens without a trial
Arresting citizens for speaking their mind
Prosecuting whistleblowers
Arresting and spying on journalists


I'm sure there are more .. but hey Freedom!

BARTLET: Bert's calling me out?
 LEO: Apparently, the people in Bert's district are so patriotic that if the President of the United States himself were to show up, they'd kill him.

That's if they even do anything. The new revolution concept Tea Partiers are crowding behind is as lazy as Tumblr activism. Lots of talk of how mad they are. Lots of reposting everywhere on the internet. But they won't do jack. All bark, no bite.

Then why haven't these people done anything about it?  They stand around in rallies, talk big concepts, proclaim freedom and liberty to the heavens, and at the end of the day sit at home in their comfy couches and blather on and on.  Not one actually does anything beyond pushing air.  They must have blue balls the size of the Liberty Bell by now.  Or, they don't actually believe this and choose to wear their collar and leash, knowing the alternative is worse.

I am NOT advocating anything like what they say, no watering tree of liberty bullshiat.  Just calling them cowards for not taking a stand and following through on their empty talk.

Because if you listen closely, they are always just one more outrage away from the revolution. Or it's always the last straw for somebody else. Not coincidentally, this group aligns very closely with people who called themselves "war bloggers" and honestly believed they were fighting a front in the war in terror by talking a lot online.

It's easy to consider yourself on the vanguard of a rebellion when you don't have to do anything but clap loudly.

How about calling for an Egypt style military coup?  Does that cross the line?
 
2013-11-12 06:33:59 PM  
Calling it the "second American revolution" is really farking insulting to the actual American revolution and the founding of our nation in general. So, par for the TEA party course, I guess.
