Glenn Beck- "Restoring the Constitution" - Glenn Beck TV Show - Dec. 21, 2010 - Fox

Glenn Beck TV Show - "Restoring the Constitution" - December 21, 2010 - Four pages..that's all it took. In those four pages, our Founders were able to map out the idea for a country that would ultimately become the most prosperous nation in the history of the planet. The goal was to limit the power of government so that the real power would lie with you, the people. Today, the government has abandoned that whole crazy idea and decided to keep the power for itself. So, what's to blame for that? If you said progressivism, give yourself a hand. Tonight, an hour on the Constitution featuring friends of the program Judge Andrew Napolitano and  David Barton.  In view of the nightmare that has been occurring during the Lame-Duck Session of the Congress during the last two weeks, this show is very timely, please watch, very enlightening.
Transcript of above show - The enemy to our Constitution is the progressive movement. Stop arguing about Republicans and Democrats, it's the progressive movement.
Where in the Constitution does it say the word "czar" or anything like it? It doesn't.
RONALD REAGAN, FORMER U.S. PRESIDENT: I think it's time we ask ourselves if we still know the freedoms that were intended for us by the Founding Fathers. If we lose freedom here, there's no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth.  BECK: Hello, America. And welcome to another special edition of "The Glenn Beck Program."  Tonight, an hour dedicated to the Constitution. Great television, I know. Crazy. Four pages, that's all it took. And in those four pages, our Founders were able to map out the idea for a country that would ultimately become the most prosperous nation in the history of the planet.  The Constitution's goal was limit the power of government so the power would lie with you, the people.  Today, the government has abandoned that whole crazy idea and kept power for itself and keeps gathering more. So, what's to blame for that? Well, no surprise coming from me. Enemy number one is progressivism.  Read more...........

House GOP May Require Constitutional Test for all New Legislation - Hot Air - Insofar as this sort of thing might encourage the public to think more critically about constitutional limits on government, I like it. Insofar as it’s aimed at reining in Democratic legislative excess … I don’t get it.  Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah), the head of the House Rules Working Group, on Thursday said the GOP transition team will recommend the adoption of a rule requiring lawmakers to provide constitutional authority for every bill.  “The Constitution is not that long. The operating manual for a Toyota Camry is more than five times longer, so it should not be that difficult,” Bishop said.  GOP leaders intended to send out a memo later Thursday providing guidance to members of the 112th Congress on how to deal with the new requirement, and suggest “resources they can go to to assist,” said Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.), the chairman of the transition team.  “The Constitution will suddenly become en vogue again” in the next House, Bishop said.  Read more.......

Judge Scalia to Teach Bachmann's Constitution Class - The Blaze -  When the 112th Congress convenes next year, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann’s Tea Pary Caucus will get a crash course on the constitutional separation of powers by Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia, CNN reports. Justice Scalia will lead the first of the constitutional seminars for members of Congress in late January. Bachmann spokesman Doug Sachtelben says the educational series is a response to conservatives’ calls for a return to constitutional principles in governing. So what might a syllabus for Justice Scalia’s class (or future Tea Party classes) look like? According to Sachtelben, the bi-monthly seminars will “bring up principles that are familiar to the members,” including the Bill of Rights and constitutional role of government. Read more.......
