The Bill Of Rights: The Freedom Of The Press

“Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.” (Matthew 5:37)
“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.” (Clintons seen corralling the press with ropes in 1992 video)

The Bill Of Rights: Freedom Of The Press, Amendment 1 To The Constitution. This amendment guarantees the freedom of expression for all citizens of the United States Of America. This guarantee prohibits Congress from restricting the press or the rights of individuals to speak freely. Those in the news media have the responsibility for reporting the actions of the government to the people. Therefore, our constitution has granted the press great freedom “of the press” by allowing it great freedom “from the government.” Without a free press, “we the people” would have very little knowledge of the things that our government is doing, whether it is good or bad. At this time in our nation’s history, we need strong, Godly members of the press who are not intimidated by the people in our government who may, or may not, want to answer tough questions about how they are leading our nation. We need members of the press who will hold leaders of our nation accountable for their actions, and will not leave questions of truth unanswered.

The opening and closing videos of this post show attitudes of the presidential candidate, the former Secretary of State, and former first lady, which are indicative of the lack of respect that she has for the Bill Of Rights and Freedom Of The Press. It appears that she and her husband hold to the ideology of “rope ’em in; keep ’em hog-tied; keep ’em away from me.” Maybe somebody should read the Bill of Rights to the lady who aspires to the Office, whose responsibility is to preserve, protect and defend our constitution.”

The Presidential Oath of Office

The oath to be taken by the president on first entering office is specified in Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States”
