The Flexible U.S. Constitution

Telling Comments

Here is an excerpt from a CNN article, by Jethro Mullen and Michael Pearson on Russia’s refusal to hand over Edward Snowden, in which John Kerry says the following, not realizing how comical, clownish and and insincere he appears [Note that Russia does not have an extradition treaty with the U.S.]:
Secretary of State John Kerry, speaking to reporters while traveling in Saudi Arabia, said the United States isn't looking to Russia to enforce U.S. law, only to "allow him to be subject to the laws of our land and our Constitution."
I guess the American Constitution, in accordance to Kerry, Obama, Feinstein, et al., is flexible, applied only in such cases when it suits the authorities and not when it suits the citizens. This includes both the First Amendment and Fourth Amendment. Ignorance is not bliss; neither is deception.

I would recommend that all members of Congress, the White House and the U.S. Supreme Court justices read the entire constitution. That’s right. Do an all-nighter if you must, but it’s essential, because your actions tell me that you are ignorant of what it says.
