The following is just a little footnote from recent history as it pertains to the former CIA Director that was in charge when President Trump alleges that he was illegally bugged during the campaign by the Obama Administration. On this date in 2013, John Brennan was sworn in as the CIA Director by then Vice President Joe Biden in the Roosevelt Room of the White House. But unlike his predecessors, during his swearing in ceremony, Mr. Brennan did not place his hand on a Bible instead he made the deliberate decision to use the historic “first draft” of the Constitution.
But what difference does it make, and what does it mean that it’s a “first draft” of the Constitution? Simply, It means it doesn’t include the First, Second, Fourth, Fifth, or Sixth Amendments or any of the other Amendments now included in our Constitution. It means that when Brennan vowed to protect and defend the Constitution, he was swearing on one that did not include some of the most important parts.
The parts that protect our free speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of the press, the right to keep and bear arms, protections from illegal searches and seizures of our property and against government spying and illegal wire taps (remember that one). That’s because The Bill of Rights did not become part of our Constitution until 1791, almost four years after the original Constitution that Brennan took his oath on was written.
Now Mr. Brennan is no idiot, and I am sure that he knows that little fact. That would seem to indicate that while he might be willing to uphold the constitution and protect the security of the nation, protecting and abiding by the rights outlined in the full constitution and Bill of Rights, like the right of any citizen, including a Presidential Candidate, not to be bugged in the Trump Towers could just be a whole different issue.
So, why do you think he decided not to use the Bible, which is traditional, or at least the whole Constitution with the Bill of Rights included as it was actually signed by the entire thirteen colonies? Using the rough draft sends a message, one that says he like most of the others holding down positions in the Obama Regime is only prepared to do lip service to customs, traditions and laws of our nation. But it also says something about his honesty and any testimony he might give about any subject including a possible illegal wire tap of the new president? Namely it says that neither he nor his word can be trusted.
