Ageing Feinstein: Constitutionalist Dementia

H/T Anthony Martin

How can a person claim to believe that the Constitution is the law of the land and yet support unconstitutional laws such the Feinstein gun ban bill?

Feinstein herself attempted to explain her rather convoluted thinking on the subject.  She stated that the Constitution does not actually place any limits on the types of laws Congress passes.  In fact, she made the wild claim that it is the duty of Congress to make the laws without any regard whatsoever for the Constitution.  And then she says that it is the duty of the Supreme Court to interpret the law(s) Congress passed, therefore, according to Feinstein-logic, nothing in her bill violates any Constitutional principle…

But what the senator failed to say is that Congress is, indeed, specifically limited by the Constitution in the types of laws it can pass.

The entire intent of the document is to limit the power of Congress, the president, and the courts, so that the rights of citizens are protected.   Feinstein also failed to mention that one of the primary duties of the Supreme Court is to strike down laws that Congress passes that are deemed to be un-constitutional.

This type of thinking characterizes Feinsteinmentia and many other Progressives – and to put it bluntly, it is horrific. Every elected official swore an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution. Any violation of that oath, including a bizzarro-world political philosophy like Feinstein exhibits that minimizes the centrality of the Constitution, must be dealt with swiftly and harshly. Such persons should never even be allowed to serve in public office.  (some editing for clarity and expression)

  1. It really is too bad that there isn’t some sort of minimum standard for would-be congresscritters.

    I don’t know, maybe pass a test on elementary civics, an IQ test, and maybe…I don’t know, a criminal background check. Can’t have felons running around making stuf illegal, like guns, or something.

  2. Fat chance. She’ll be re-elected till six months after she’s rotting in the grave. Liberals never learn; they’re incapable of it.
