The Bill of Rights was conspicuously absent as part of the Constitution used during the swearing-in ceremony of John Brennan as our CIA Director.

A Freudian slip?  An intentional oversight?  Or the end of accountability in our federal intelligence services?  Please see my important update below – Mat.


Last Friday, in a private ceremony conducted by Vice President Joe Biden, John Brennan was sworn in as our Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.

But Brennan’s ceremony was different – quite different – from those of his predecessors.

First, John Brennan chose not to place his left hand on a Bible, which, as I’m sure you know, is the traditional ceremonial format for taking a solemn oath.

Now-Secretary Brennan instead chose to place his left hand on an original draft of the Constitution from 1787.  Brennan made the request to the National Archives because, as the White House reported, “he wanted to reaffirm his commitment to the rule of law as he took the oath of office as Director of the CIA…”

The catch is, that draft of the Constitution did not contain the Bill of Rights.  In other words, John Brennan swore to uphold the Constitution on a draft copy that didn’t include some of the most important guarantees of our individual freedoms – the first ten amendments to the Constitution, known as the Bill of Rights, which were ratified in 1791.  

No freedom of speech… no establishment of religion clause… no right to bear arms… no law against unreasonable searches and seizures…. no guarantees to a speedy and public trial were in the Constitution draft upon which John Brennan swore.

During his confirmation hearings, Brennan came under fire for his refusal to answer questions on our individual liberties stemming from the Bill of Rights.  Now, we hear of this unprecedented swearing-in ceremony.  What should the American people make of it?

Is this a hidden message – or an overt message?  Secretary Brennan hasn’t commented on the uproar following the disclosure of his truly unusual request concerning the components of his swearing-in ceremony.

++Liberty Counsel has declared 2013 is the year for a “New Birth of Liberty” in America!

Of course, it is our Constitution that defines our liberty and embodies the Founders’ greatest gift to the American people, a gift placed into effect upon its ratification in 1789.  It defines and establishes the separation of powers that provides a sure defense against despotic and tyrannical forces – unless the people allow it to be subverted.

The gift of liberty is far too precious to squander. It is our duty to fight for what is right and good and which was obtained and preserved at a great price.

Please take a moment to sign our Oath of Allegiance Letter declaring that you, too, will defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and help protect the system of government that has made our nation great in the intervening 224 years since the Constitution’s ratification!

Our goal is to present this letter to key members of the new 113th Congress and other elected officials with at least 100,000 signatures!

++The Islamic infiltration continues.

Another highly relevant question about the Director’s swearing-in ceremony is, why wouldn’t John Brennan take his oath on a Bible?

As you may know from my prior messages, there are credible allegations that John Brennan converted to Islam during his prolonged tenure in the Middle East.  

Now there are many observers who are questioning whether his alleged conversion to Islam would prevent him from taking his oath on a Bible.

Frank Gaffney, Jr., Founder and President of the Center for Security Policy, and a good friend of Liberty Counsel, says that being pro-Islam is the new litmus test for Obama appointees…

“President Obama seems to have a worrisome litmus test for staffing his new administration.  The recently installed Secretaries of State and Defense, the White House Chief of Staff, and the CIA Director all have in common an eagerness to embrace our Islamist foes.”  

And make no mistake, with the infiltration of Islam comes the oppressive Islamic legal code, Sharia.

++As President Ronald Reagan warned, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.”
There has never before been highly placed elected leadership in Washington, DC, whose goal is to turn our nation into a socialist state. Now, our rising generation of Americans who has seen nothing else doesn’t view that approach as a negative!

Today’s radical Leftists believe they know better than our nation’s Founders – that the Constitution is somehow outdated and/or irrelevant. 

CNN’s Piers Morgan recently declared, “Both the Bible and the Constitution were well intentioned but they are basically, inherently flawed. Hence, the need to amend it.”

++The “Progressive Left’s” vision for our nation is diametrically opposed to that of our Founders.

As Liberty Counsel has consistently stated, there is a distinct pattern to the Left’s attacks on the constitutionally prescribed checks and balances at the heart of our government.  

”Liberal Progressives” are systematically attacking the constitutional principles of individual freedom and conscience protection as unworthy of being given precedence over the so-called needs of the State!
In the pivotal year 2013, the biggest check to the ascent of the Left is an enlightened American citizenry championing the Constitution! 

At Liberty Counsel, we recognize the pattern of the Left’s strategic plan and fight against it – working every day to expose their agenda while we still have the freedom to freely speak.

That’s why we have launched our powerful Oath of Allegiance Letter campaign in the year of a “New Birth of Liberty.”  

We will deliver many tens of thousands of these bold proclamations to key members of Congress and other elected officials – and to your Pennsylvania senators and representative if you choose to include them.

We plan to tell these officials – in no uncertain terms – that we expect them to adhere to their own Oaths of Office, the Constitution, and to join our battle against the Constitution’s enemies!

By signing the Oath of Allegiance Letter, you will be joining like-minded patriots in affirming that you will defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic!

We must reaffirm our allegiance to the Constitution, before our rights to speak out disagree with and petition the exercise religious own a firearm to defend ourselves...and other crucial rights... disappear forever!

God bless you and God bless America!

P.S. Was John Brennan’s choice to take his oath on a version of the Constitution missing the Bill of Rights intentional or coincidental?  Only he can answer that question – but it speaks to a very disturbing pattern we are seeing within the Obama administration and his Leftist supporters – the undermining of our Constitution.  Also of great concern is the infiltration of pro-Islam government officials, which will surely open the door for the penetration of Sharia into our system of justice.
