The Bible has a description of people like Piers Morgan: “Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought. . . “ Romans 12:3.
Here is video of Piers Morgan tonight talking to Pastor Rick Warren where he decreed that both the Bible and the U.S. Constitution are “inherently flawed” – and said the Bible needs to be amended. To which, Rick Warren gave the right answer – “No,” and “Not a chance.”
Long after the opinions of Piers Morgan have faded into the sunset, God will still be using the Bible to change the lives of people.
Here is audio of Mark Levin talking with “Brad from Buffalo” (that’s our Freedom’s Lighthouse reader and commenter “Brad”) about his question at a recent Town Hall Meeting to Democrat Rep. Kathy Hochul (NY CD-26). Brad asked Hochul where she and Obama get the authority to require any private or religious entity to pay for something for free for people. Her response was very revealing. She responded: “Basically, we’re not looking to the Constitution on that aspect of it.”
Levin actually talks with “Brad from Buffalo” at the 4:23 mark of this video about his question and Hochul’s answer, and praises Brad for “exposing” Hochul – telling him “We salute you.”
We salute you too, Brad! Great job!
Here is Rush Limbaugh today asking if a debate on “Faith and the Constitution” were held, who would win between Rick Santorum and Barack Obama? Rush said Obama would be in big trouble because he would be forced to defend “infanticide” and “partial birth abortion.”
This montage video of Democrat Rep. Kathy Hochul’s recent Town Hall Meeting comes to us from another Freedom’s Lighthouse reader – “John.” It includes some of the video of FL reader “Brad” asking Hochul where she gets the authority in the U.S. Constitution for a mandate that requires private or religious entities to pay for something for someone else – especially something that violates their religious beliefs. Her response was very telling: “Well, basically, we’re not looking to the Constitution on that aspect of it.”
That’s the problem. That statement sums up in a nutshell what is wrong with the Left in America – including Left-wing Judges that sit on the bench in too many courts of America. They are not looking to the Constitution for guidance.
Here is raw video of Sen. Rick Santorum speaking on Newt Gingrich’s home turf of Georgia yesterday, at the First Redeemer Church in Cumming, Georgia.
In this clip, Santorum talks about how essential it is to keep our nation closely adhering to the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Santorum was incredulous about liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg having recently said she preferred to recommend the “South African Constitution” over the U.S. Constitution as a model for other nations to follow.
Here is Michele Bachmann’s complete interview yesterday on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. This is the interview that has stirred quite a bit of controversy because Wallace came out and bluntly asked Bachmann, “Are you a flake?”
Isn’t it interesting that you never hear this question asked of liberal, Democrat women in politics – Sheila Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Schultz etc. But the media constantly give this impression about conservative women.
Bachmann committed herself to repealing ObamaCare, and to not seeking any solution to the MediCare crisis that would change benefits for those over 55 years old.
On Gay Marriage, Bachmann said New York had the right under the 10th Amendment to pass a law approving Gay Marriage. But she also said Federal officials have the right to propose a Constitutional Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would define marriage as the union of one man with one woman. Wallace said that seemed to be a contradiction.
Of course, it is not. Bachmann said that both state’s rights and the Federal Constitutional Amendment process are allowed under the Constitution. What she did not point out to Wallace is that a Federal Constitutional Amendment is also a state process because 38 states would have to ratify the amendment for it to become law! When asked point blank if she would support a Constitutional Amendment upholding traditional marriage, Bachmann answered with a strong, “Yes.”
Democrat Rep. Loretta Sanchez mocks her Republican Tea Party colleagues for caring about the Constitution. Sanchez complained that “everything to them is unconstitutional,” and mocked them using a “Southern accent.”

Here is video of Democrat Rep. Jim McDermott saying on the House Floor that he is “tired of reading the Constitution and all the silly things we’ve done for the last 13 weeks.”
McDermott was criticizing the way the GOP is running the House of Representatives – particularly that they began by reading the U.S. Constitution.
Actually, Democrats could benefit from reading it a lot more. This ought to fit well in ads for whoever runs against McDermott in 2012.
Here is video of Democrat Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. earlier this month speaking on the Floor of the House of Representatives where he made truly unbelievable statements about how the U.S. Constitution should be altered.
Jackson said the Constitution should be amended to add the following as “basic rights” to deal with the long-term unemployed:
“We need to add to the Constitution the right for a family to have a decent home. . . .We need to add to the Constitution the right to medical care. . . .We need to add to the Constitution of the United States the right to a decent education for every American. . . .How many people would be put to work building roofs and designing classrooms and providing every student with an ipod and a laptop. . . .There’s an even greater America in front of us. It’s the America that adds to our founding documents these basic rights.”
A “right” to an ipod and a laptop? This demonstrates how seriously many Democrats take our fiscal mess as a nation. They still have their wish list they plan on bringing to pass when they get another opportunity.
Here is complete video of the U.S. House of Representatives today, January 6, 2011, reading aloud the United States Constitution. House Members who wanted to take part in the reading, from both parties, lined up to read a section from the House Floor. This is the first know occasion that the Constitution has been read aloud during a session of the House:
PART 1 – Preliminaries (After some debate as to whether to read the original version of the U.S. Constitution, the decision was announded to read the U.S. Constitution “as amended.”)
PART 2 – Preamble and Article I
PART 3 – Articles II-VII
PART 4 – The “Bill of Rights” (Amendments I-X)
PART 5 – Amendments XI-XIII
PART 6 – Amendments XIV-XXVII
Thanks to PBSNewsHour for uploading to YouTube this outstanding video of the complete reading of the U.S. Constitution.
Here is video from the House Floor this morning where members were reading the U.S. Constitution aloud. When the provision requiring the President to be a “natural born citizen” was read, someone in the House Gallery stood up and shouted, “What about Obama?!”
The Chair then called for the removal of those who had created “a disturbance” in the gallery.
House Republicans will spend part of tomorrow emphasizing the fundamentals – the U.S. Constitution. They will do so in dramatic fashion by reading the U.S. Constitution aloud in the House Chamber – something that has never been done before, as far as anyone knows:
FOX NEWS:. . . . Boehner will begin Thursday by reading the Constitution’s preamble: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., will follow suit with Article 1, Section 1, which states that Congress will have a Senate and a House of Representatives. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., then reads Article 1, Section 2. Members will continue on until they have read the entire Constitution and its amendments. They will not get to choose which section they read.
Goodlatte expects the proceeding to take 90 minutes. They will use one copy of the document to do the entire reading, and will pass it between members. . . . . Read More
Here is a video report on the transfer of power in the U.S. House of Representatives that will take place today at Noon in Washington, D.C. Republicans will assume control of the House, will Rep. John Boehner taking the gavel from Nancy Pelosi to become Speaker of the House.
The report points out that Republicans are already planning to vote to repeal ObamaCare in the House, and at the end of the report mention that they plan to require anyone who submits a bill for consideration to cite where the U.S. Constitution gives Congress authority to do what their bill seeks to accomplish.
What a refreshing idea!
The liberals’ heads are exploding as the GOP readies to take control of the House tomorrow! And the fact they will begin by reading the U.S. Constitution from the Floor is just too much!
Here is video of Joy Behar asking liberal talker Bill Press, “Do you think this Constitution-loving is getting out of hand?”
Oh yeah, Joy. It’s dangerous to love the Constitution too much!
