Stand Up For the Constitution: DC Inaugural Demonstration, 1-20-09

1-20-09 Pro-Constitution Activist Demonstration on Inauguration Parade Route on Pennsylvania Avenue.  Web Banner.Since the FISA Amendments Act in the summer of 2008, the 4th Amendment to the United States Constitution is essentially a suggestion. The prohibition on searches and seizures of you, your property and your communications used to be a mandate, but now it is just a suggestion to be followed if the President feels like it.

Is that acceptable to you? If not, consider that our next President, Barack Obama, not only voted for the FISA Amendments Act, but declared his intention to employ it as President.

Do you believe dissent is the highest form of Patriotism unless the object of dissent is a Democrat?
Do you believe that an administration must adhere to the Constitution or pay political costs… so long as the administration is a Republican one?

Or do you believe the United States Constitution applies in all seasons? Do you advocate all presidents, Democratic or Republican, should be held to account for their policy decisions?

If you find yourself in the latter camp, then please join us on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009, in Washington, DC. We have secured a permit for a spot on Pennsylvania Avenue. Our purpose: to courteously, quietly but pointedly stand along the route, holding signs that ask our new president Barack Obama, as he passes us by on Pennsylvania Avenue, to fulfill his Oath of Office “to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Here are the details, from the Inauguration demonstration web page:

Flip Flop Obama Was Against Protect America Act, Now For It!

Barack Obama has done himself in with his support for the FISA Amendments Act. The problem isn’t just that the FISA Amendments Act is a badly written law, and a flagrant abuse against Americans’ constitutional rights.

The biggest problem for Obama is that his support for the FISA Amendments Act is intellectually dishonest, and logically impossible to support because it’s internally inconsistent.

Consider two statements made in yesterday’s statement by Obama trying to explain his support for the FISA Amendments Act:

First: “I also believe that the compromise bill is far better than the Protect America Act that I voted against last year.”

Then: “Given the choice between voting for an improved yet imperfect bill, and losing important surveillance tools, I’ve chosen to support the current compromise.”

When Barack Obama says in the second statement that he doesn’t want the President to lose “important surveillance tools”. You know what those “important surveillance tools” are? They’re the tools established by the Protect America Act:

– Physical searches of Americans’ homes without a search warrant or any evidence of a crime.
– Electronic eavesdropping on our telephone calls, emails and web surfing without a search warrant or other judicial supervision.
– Making the administrators of the spy programs the same people to certify the spy programs’ legality.

When Barack Obama says that he wants to keep “important surveillance tools” from expiring, he’s saying that he wants to keep the Protect America Act from expiring – but earlier in the same statement, he says that the Protect America Act is a bad law, and that’s why he voted against it in 2007!

Barack Obama was against the Protect America Act before he was for it?

That kind of sloppy thinking sunk John Kerry in 2004, and it is sinking Barack Obama in 2008.
