Here's Something That Trumps Trump...and Hillary, et. al.
The Don's latest utterances, which were largely critical of (or demeaning to) the Muslim parents of a U.S. Army Captain who was killed serving in Iraq, were truly beyond the pale. All Trump supporters should be thoroughly embarrassed. The father, Mr. Kahn, rightly had suggested that Trump should read a copy of the U.S. Constitution.
In particular, Mr. Trump, it would serve you well to study the First, Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments.
Hillary, as well, would be served by reading especially Article I, Section 8. I suggest, Ms. Clinton, you concentrate on the clauses regarding war, captures on land & sea, and assassinations (Letters of Marque and Reprisal). Please have your buddy, the President, re-read those parts, too. Our Leader, the Constitutional Scholar, apparently has no common sense when it comes to those clauses.
Finally, to all the above and all high-level politicians in D.C., it's way past time for you to review this simple fact, and apply it to your work: no law---not the PATRIOT Act, not the War Powers Act, not the National Defense Authorization Act, not even any Act (or Executive Order) proposed by Trump---over-rides the Constitution. The Supreme Law of the Land cannot be negated simply because certain propagandists ram a 342-page Bill through Congress that no one has had time to read...and only two copies were available to members of the House (who were in session all night)...and that was written long before 9-11. [I refer to the infamous, unconstitutional PATRIOT Act, officially known as the USA PATRIOT Act, which stands for: "Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001".]
Again--- no law (or Exec. Order) trumps the U.S. Constitution, not even laws that Trump says he'll get through Congress...such as a law requiring all Muslims to be "registered" (which clearly would be unconstitutional...and un-American).
Not only my opinion. Be Well
