Jay Sekulow SLAMS Nadler in Senate Impeachment Trial. Jan 22, 2020. TruthNation. Tump lawyer Jay Sekulow destroys Jerry Nadler for saying “executive privilege and other nonsense”. Sekulow is arguing that not giving documents and violating executive privilege in order to offer up witnesses is not nonsense, it’s Constitutional.
Jay Sekulow is a Messianic Jew, which means that he was born Jewish but is now a born again believer in Christ. His discussion in the opening video is a defense of our Constitution. Jerald Nadler, and other Democrats, have made an assault on the U.S. Constitution, with a liberal attack arrow being aimed at the Bill of Rights, as Jay Sekulow very clearly pointed out in his comments that were made to the members of the U.S. Senate in January 22, 2020, in the hearings where Democrats want to remove our President from office.
The Democrats in our country have made an unrelenting attack on the formation of our country, to include our Constitution. I have heard government educated types say that the colonists should never have declared their independence from Great Britain. In this article I will identify some of the things that were matters of oppression against the people whom had made their homes in America. The following timeline shows some of the things that were serous problems that were being forced on the Colonies; such things were in the minds of our founding fathers of the U.S.A. when they wrote our Constitution. Notice that the colonists eventually separated themselves from the oppressive British government. In this article, we will also discuss today’s attacks on our Constitution by Democrats.
Consider the following American History Timeline that leads to the formation of the United States Of America. I doubt that many students in American “government schools” are made aware of the true founding of America, with the establishing of the United States of America. Consider 1765, Mar 24 and the Bill of Rights. http://www.datesandevents.org/events-timelines/14-american-history-timeline.htm

The “BILL OF RIGHTS.” The protection of citizens from the U.S. Government.
These first ten amendments to the Constitution became known as the Bill of Rights, and still stand as both the symbol and foundation of American ideals of individual liberty, LIMITED GOVERNMENT, and the rule of law. Most of the Bill of Rights concerns legal protections for those accused of crimes. For instance, the fourth through eighth amendments provide protection from unreasonable SEARCH AND SEIZURE, the privilege against SELF-INCRIMINATION, and the right to a FAIR AND SPEEDY JURY TRIAL that will be free from unusual punishments. The last two amendments, respectively, spell out that this list of individual protections is not meant to exclude other ones, and, by contrast, set forth that all powers claimed by the federal government had to be expressly stated in the Constitution.
The FIRST AMENDMENT, perhaps the broadest and most famous of the Bill of Rights, establishes a range of political and civil rights including those of FREE SPEECH, assembly, press, and religion.
Amendment I Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
RE: RELIGION. Notice that this is the first protection for citizens against government overreach and control. The Democrat party often uses “Freedom Of Religion” to mean “Freedom From Religion.” There is no “great wall of separation,” as Democrats often state in their arguments against U.S. citizens who claim such First Amendment protection from our government. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama both used the phrase, “Freedom of Worship.” Such an misunderstanding allows us to meet freely for worship, but puts controls on taking the knowledge that we learn in church services, by restricting an exercise of that which we have learned to evangelize “outside of a place of worship.” The wording of this constitutional right is very clear; it does not require a constitutional lawyer to make its meaning known. Consider the following linked information on why the colonists feared a government control of religion.
What effect did the Glorious Revolution have on the American Colonies?
The Glorious Revolution had a significant effect on the American colonies. King James II had created as many problems in the American colonies as he had for England. Under the rule of King James II the colonists were under the direct control of the monarch. James II ruled as he saw fit and there was no one to stop him:
Over half the governments of the colonies were under the direct control of James II.
James II refused to recognized the colonial charters that had been granted to the colonists.
He did not allow American colonists any say over laws and taxes.
As a staunch Catholic, James was attempting to replace Protestant institutions with Catholic ones.
The vast majority of Colonists were Protestants – Only 1.6% of the population were Catholics.
The Protestants detested the Catholics and feared the bloody persecutions they had left behind in Europe.
RE: FREEDOM OF SPEECH. No one has the freedom to go into a crowded theater and yell “FIRE!” No one has the right to go to a place of business and yell obscenities. Notice that the protections for free speech deal with government control of speech. As citizens, the government can not control our speech, regardless of agreement or disagreement with its content. Consider the protections of our speech that was on the minds of the colonists. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_of_speech_in_the_United_States
England. During colonial times, English speech regulations were rather restrictive. The English criminal common law of seditious libel made criticizing the government a crime. Lord Chief Justice John Holt, writing in 1704–1705, explained the rationale for the prohibition: “For it is very necessary for all governments that the people should have a good opinion of it.” The objective truth of a statement in violation of the libel law was not a defense. Until 1694 England had an elaborate system of licensing; no publication was allowed without the accompaniment of the government-granted license.
At Charlottesville, VA, a permit was granted for citizens to peacefully assemble and voice their objections concerning plans to remove a Confederate statue. Fake news addressed those whom had been granted the permit to assemble as, “white nationalists.” However, permission to protest is not based on anyone’s agreement, or disagreement, with the reason to assemble and protest on public property. The guarantee of FREE SPEECH if that If I can go there, you can go there too.
RE: FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. As is stated below, a FREE PRESS is needed to inform citizens of that which the government is doing. But, today, the press, which is primarily FAKE NEWS, has sided with the Democrat Party and liberal causes to oppose the opinions and freedoms that conservatives hold important to them. A key example is the fact that fake news has attacked our current President everyday of his presidency with false information, and biased guests and media reporters. The following information shows the concern that the colonists had concerning a free press that could honestly report on the actions of the developing government of “the United States of America.”
Freedom of the press—the right to report news or circulate opinion without censorship from the government—was considered “one of the great bulwarks of liberty,” by the Founding Fathers of the United States. Americans enjoy freedom of the press as one of the rights guaranteed by the First Amendment.
The First Amendment, which protects freedom of the press, was adopted on December 15, 1791, as part of the Bill of Rights.
The Bill of Rights provides constitutional protection for certain individual liberties, including freedom of the press, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and the right to assemble and petition the government.
Origins Of Free Press. Before the thirteen colonies declared independence from Great Britain, the British government attempted to censor the American media by prohibiting newspapers from publishing unfavorable information and opinions.
Amendment II A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
RE: THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS. Consider the words, “TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS,” and the colonists’ concerns over the need for this amendment. Red Flag legislation violates this amendment, which is happening in the state of Virginia. Notice that Democrats favor striking this amendment from the Bill of Rights. https://www.independent.org/publications/books/summary.asp?id=72
Other legislation that has been filed includes banning indoor shooting ranges at offices where there are more than 50 employees. That would include a shooting range at the NRA headquarters, which is located in northern Virginia.
Independence being declared in 1776, the states began adopting bills of rights, several of which recognized “the right of the people” to have arms for various purposes, such as self defense and the common defense. While some states saw no need for declarations of rights, the liberty of bearing arms was universally recognized. At the same time, militias composed of all male citizens were seen as necessary counter-weights to the threat of a standing army.
Consider the need for personal protection. Democrats ignore the violence in Baltimore: 12 shot, five dead, in single day of shootings in Baltimore https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/12-shot-dead-single-day-shootings-baltimore-68232001
Consider the need for for personal protection in Chicago: 30 people have been killed this year. That is 9 more than 2019.
Data through Sunday, January 26 https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/breaking/ct-chicago-homicides-data-tracker-htmlstory.html
Again, Democrats ignore the fact of violence and murder that can not be prevented by unarmed citizens.
During the Obama administration, law enforcement personnel were constantly being verbally assaulted by Democrats. As noble as police officers have shown themselves to be, there are not enough of them to protect citizens from violent attacks.
AG Sessions: Chicago Murder Rate Spiked Due to Obama’s Consent Decree: By Melanie Arter | September 21, 2018 | 3:46pm EDT
(CNSNews.com) – Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday blamed the spike in murders in Chicago on the Obama administration’s consent decree, which called for police reforms in response to police harassment and brutality claims.
“From 2014 to 2016, the violent crime rate went up by nearly seven percent. Assaults and rape went up nearly 10 percent. Murder shot up by more than 20 percent. Sadly, this was a nationwide phenomenon, but Chicago is, without a doubt, the most dramatic example,” he said.
Consider Detroit violence. https://apnews.com/c43536132a0996ba53d763cae281c084
DETROIT (AP) — Homicides in Detroit increased last year…End-of-year statistics show 273 homicides were committed in 2019 — up from 261 the year before, Chief James Craig said Friday. Detroit’s 767 nonfatal shootings last year were more than the 755 in 2018, while robberies also were up in 2019 — 2,337 to 2,309. Gang violence was responsible for an uptick in shootings in July and late November into December.

The attack on the Bill of Rights will continue by Democrats. As was seen in the last video, high-profile Democrats viciously lie in attacks on the NRA. Democrats are lying to our children and grandchildren about NRA members; I am an NRA member. Consider the mission statements of the National Rifle Association and the National Association for Gun Rights.
The fight for America to become a free country began with the Revolutionary War, and the events that led up to that war. The freedom of our country is under attack today by the Democrat Party. To vote for a Democrat is to vote against the Bill of Rights and the colonists that fought to make the U.S.A. a free country. Amendments three through ten will be discussed in the next article of “The Making Of America,” and will continue to show the attacks of Democrats on our Bill of Rights.
The mission statements of two of the United States’ top pro-gun lobbies, the National Association for Gun Rights and the National Rifle Association, sound very similar.
The NRA’s mission statement, summarized from its bylaws, is: “To protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, especially with reference to the inalienable right of the individual American citizen guaranteed by such Constitution to acquire, possess, collect, exhibit, transport, carry, transfer ownership of, and enjoy the right to use arms.” The statement also includes a focus on promoting public safety, training in the safe and efficient handling of small arms, hunter safety, and shooting sport promotion.
The National Association for Gun Rights’ mission statement says the organization was “established to promote firearms education, legal advocacy and the promotion of the Second Amendment. In the compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that profits. In the compromise between food and poison, it is only death that wins.” The NAGR also “follows the courts closely” for purposes of legal advocacy and is working to start training programs nationwide.
At the writing of this article, our President is at a rally in Iowa. Lee Greenwood is singing, “God Bless The USA.” The crowd is shouting, “USA USA USA.” Yes. It is a shame that Democrats can’t sing in agreement with that wonderful song. May God protect our country, and may He richly bless The United States Of America.
