"Republican Rep. Paul Broun of Georgia won his seat in Congress campaigning as a strict defender of the Constitution.
"But it turns out there are parts of the document he doesn't care for -- lots of them. He wants to get rid of the language about birthright citizenship, federal income taxes and direct election of senators, among others."

----------

Notice in the second sentence the "reporter" changed from "Constitution" to "document".

That's because the items the reporter is talking about are AMENDMENTS to the original Constitution, such as the 14th amendment which gives instant citizenship to any child born on American soil - REGARDLESS of the legal status of the mother.

Such is the dishonesty of the mainstream media.

Is it Unconstitutional and Illegal for a President to Order the Assassination of another American Citizen just because he "thinks" or is "Told" that the person is guilty of a crime; without any due process?

Of course not!

Obama committed this crime.

Will Libyan Lockerbie Pan Am Bomber Be Dead in Three Months & Why does Obama Shake Gaddafi's hand?

The naïve Scottish Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill, defending his decision to free the only person convicted in the Pan Am Lockerbie bombing, said this week that an Aug. 10 diagnosis giving Abdel Basset Ali al-Megrahi just three months to live triggered his release.

"As I said, Mr. Al-Megrahi now faces a sentence imposed by a higher power," he told an emergency session of the Scottish Parliament on Monday. "It is one that no court, in any jurisdiction, in any land, could revoke or overrule. It is terminal, final and irrevocable. He is going to die."
A lot of people are counting the days.

MacAskill faced his Parliament after he found "compassionate grounds" under Scottish law to grant al-Megrahi freedom. Al-Megrahi, who has prostate cancer, served only eight years of his 27-years-to-life sentence.

Libyan TV showed video of Gaddafi embracing a murderer who was convicted for the Dec. 21, 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 that killed 270 people, 189 of them Americans.

Gaddafi and Brown and other world leaders met in Italy in July for the G8 summit.

Gaddafi was there in his role as leader of the African Union. President Obama caught some flak in the United States for shaking Gaddafi's hand.

Hey, dummy, they are AMENDMENTS to the Constitution.( To make it simple for you, that means they were added to it after the original Constitution was accepted by our founders.)

Amendments can be rescinded, just as the 18th amendment on prohibition was. Likewise, the 14th amendment is flawed and should be replaced with one that serves the original intent.

Here's another way Liberal papers, like the Boston Globe, "tweak" the public.

Article says:
"The problem with such a view, says constitutional law scholar Mark Kende, is that divining what the framers intended involves subjective judgments infused with politics. Holding up the 2nd Amendment as sacrosanct, for example, while dismissing other parts of the Constitution is "cherry picking," said Kende, director of Drake University's Constitutional Law Center.

----------

Among other things, Mark Kende is a Senior Fulbright Scholar.
To those of us who know politics, that screams "LIBERAL"...to say the least. Think Bill & Hillary Clinton.
----------

Then there's this:

"Virginia Sloan, an attorney who directs the nonpartisan Constitution Project, agreed.

"There are a lot of people who obviously don't like income taxes. That's a political position," she said of criticism of the 16th Amendment, which authorized the modern federal income tax more than a century ago. "But it's in the Constitution ... and I don't think you can go around saying something is unconstitutional just because you don't like it."
----------

Virginia Sloane is a former Democrat staffer and "...a past member of the Executive Committee of the ACLU of the National Capital Area"
----------

SO...while they lead you to accept their premise by quoting "scholars" who are presented as being "non-partisan" and unbias...

...the truth is, you are being led to draw the conclusion the Left wing paper wants you to draw - thru ommission of facts that do not serve their Left wing agenda.

Such is the mainstream media. All it takes to expose them is a little digging with an inquiring mind.

U.S. court rules against Obama's stem cell policy

By Jeremy Pelofsky and Maggie Fox
WASHINGTON | Mon Aug 23, 2010

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- A U.S. district court issued a preliminary injunction on Monday stopping federal funding of human embryonic stem cell research, in a slap to the Obama administration's new guidelines on the sensitive issue.

The court ruled in favor of a suit filed in June by researchers who said human embryonic stem cell research involved the destruction of human embryos.

Judge Royce Lamberth granted the injunction after finding the lawsuit would likely succeed because the guidelines violated law banning the use of federal funds to destroy human embryos.
