SAYS THE DECLARATION of Independence (whose signing we celebrate this coming Wednesday), “Governments are instituted among Men.”
So, when the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court writes, “It is not our job to protect the people…” from anything, he either lies or reveals an ignorance of historical fact so abysmal as to be disqualifying. It is, in fact, exactly your job, Chief Roberts, to protect the people from any violation of Constitutional law, whether it was passed by Congress in a fraudulent legislative process or brought about through an executive overreach.
By so writing, you violate — indeed, vitiate — your oath of office.
Which makes you doubly damned, albeit hardly unique in our nation’s capital.
Wait! The Declaration is not a formal part of statute law.
No, but I submit to you that it is, as a matter of fact, a part of the Constitution, by virtue of the Ninth Amendment, if nothing else. Without the Declaration, the Constitution, it could be argued, is not valid.
