Everything You Know about the Constitution is Wrong

a book by Edward James Snowden

(our site's book review)

The U.S. Constitution is Broken

This is the stuff the Founders read and wrote
This is the stuff the Founders read and wrote

The Amazon blurb says that The U.S. Constitution is broken. The Constitution no longer binds the federal government. Agencies like the CIA, the NSA, and others, ignore the Constitution. The United States now invades other countries for little or no reason. The President is becoming a sort of military conqueror; the Congress is utterly powerless and corrupt; and the Supreme Court issues one terrible decision after another.

How did it all happen? Americans have lost the system the Founding Fathers invented. Most do not realize, for example, that many of the liberties they take for granted have not come from the Constitution, but from a little-known Supreme Court legal maneuver known as incorporation. The individual right to bear arms was granted only in 2010. Other rights have been granted here and there only at the discretion of the Supreme Court.

The Founders warned us against the greedy elites that would attempt to exploit the vulnerabilities of democracy—and exploit they did!

Everything You Know about the Constitution is Wrong tells the untold story of the United States Constitution. It debunks the popular myth that the United States Constitution was written to give Americans individual rights. It shows how the so-called Bill of Rights was a list of restrictions on the federal government to protect the States, not a list of individual rights for citizens. It shows how after the Civil War, politicians who were incapable of writing a new Constitution chose instead to transform the federal system into a national one through a single amendment. This turned the Constitution inside out, forcing words that meant one thing (federal limits) now to mean something else (individual rights).

From Alex Jones and the so-called alt-right to today's social justice warriors and cosmopolitan elites, the Constitution is today completely misunderstood. A new constitution was needed after the Civil War, and it is no less needed today. Everything You Know about the Constitution is Wrong takes the reader through the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Articles of Confederation, and other key texts in understanding the American system of government.

Bravehearts: Whistle-Blowing in the Age of Snowden

Edward James Snowden was the name specified by the United States Government in its request for authorities in Hong Kong to arrest the famed whistleblower. The whistleblowing fellow is Edward Joseph Snowden, not Edward James Snowden, the author of Everything You Know about the Constitution is Wrong. So they refused to arrest him. This clerical error in our government's documents was a godsend to Edward Joseph Snowden, the whistleblower. It gave him a way to fly to Russia and enjoy asylum, courtesy of Putin. So Edward James Snowden may be an ironic pseudonym or a real name. The Amazon reviewers of this book were pissed that the faker calling himself Edward James Snowden used the famous whistleblower's name to sell more books—we agree.

Other Constitution Commenters

Mark Levin comments that "It’s difficult to think of our current federal government—so ubiquitous in our lives, with its tentacles into everything—as consistent with what we understand to be the real meaning of the Constitution. The system that the framers set up was a good one, but it’s not one we’re living under." . . . Levin has proposed a series of Liberty Amendments, most of which reflect well-known aspects of the Tea Party agenda. He wants to set term limits on members of Congress, limit federal spending and taxes, and allow three-fifths of the states to overrule any federal legislation. He also wants to repeal the Seventeenth Amendment and return the election of senators to state legislators, rather than to voters. 'The original purpose of the Senate was to give state legislators a say in the national government, and that’s gone,' Levin told me. . . . The Preamble to the Constitution says nothing about judges or politicians. It invokes what should be the true and ultimate authority in American government: We the People." [Passed by Congress May 13, 1912, and ratified April 8, 1913, the 17th amendment modified Article I, section 3, of the Constitution by allowing voters to cast direct votes for U.S. Senators. Prior to its passage, Senators were chosen by state legislatures.] (Source: Our Broken Constitution: Everyone agrees that government isn’t working. Are the founders to blame?, Jeffrey Toobin, New Yorker)

"Originalism, however, is fundamentally flawed. First, because those who enacted the broad foundational provisions of our Constitution often did not have any precise and agreed-upon understanding of the specific meaning of “freedom of speech” or “due process of law” or “regulate Commerce…among the several States” or “privileges or immunities” or “equal protection of the laws,” it is exceedingly difficult to know with any certainty what they did or did not think about concrete constitutional issues. As a consequence, judges purporting to engage in originalist analysis often project onto the Framers their own personal and political preferences. The result is an unprincipled and often patently disingenuous jurisprudence. There is no evidence for the claims advanced by originalists, for example, that the original meaning of the Equal Protection Clause prohibited affirmative action or that the original meaning of the First Amendment included the notion that corporations (which were both strongly regulated and highly distrusted at the time) had a constitutional right to spend unlimited capital to influence political elections. Both of these claims, however, are central to today’s conservative legal agenda." (Source: The Framers’ Constitution, Geoffrey Stone snd William P. Marshall, Democracy Journal)

Everything You Know about the Constitution is Wrong is an educational book full of surprises. It examines the U.S. Constitution and the thinking of the men behind it. It shows how the 14th Amendment actually changed our form of government. What we need is a new Constitution, Snowden proclaims. The old Constitution refers to a type of government that no longer exists and has been politicized to the point that we have few rights left. By directly mentioning the role of the states, the 14th Amendment greatly expanded the protection of civil rights to all Americans and is cited in more litigation than any other amendment. (The role of the states: it forbids states from denying any person "life, liberty or property, without due process of law" or to "deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”) This amendment was the civil rights granter—said rights were no longer mere generalities. However, real civil rights for minorities and women (19th Amendment, 1920, women) didn't truly begin until the mid-1900s (the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964) due to Jim Crow laws and racist Democrats.

The Purpose of This Book Is to Clarify the Original Vision of the Constitution

"As the situation grows more and more intolerable, the People may find that they must reassert their right to govern themselves and to have a government that reflects their values, beliefs, and interests. The right of the People to form their own government, founded if not in this or that concept of natural law, then in extra-legal principle, was a fundamental part of the theory behind the Constitution. The Constitution still expresses an admirable, even exemplary vision of a human society in which all members are able to contribute toward deciding their collective destiny. The hunger for the freedom to decide one's destiny was tangible in a land of colonists who were either religious radicals hoping to create Heaven on earth, or pragmatists hoping to make the most of their own labors. The original vision of the Constitution must be clearly seen, however. That is the purpose of this book. This book is intended for literate people not afraid to think. It is best read by people who understand political partisanship as so many grand delusions. The Founders were highly literate men, subtle thinkers who did the best they could given their time and place. This book is a guide to understanding their effort," says pseudo-Snowden.

The Founders didn't just get off the boat—they (their ancestors) had been off it for over a century; The Founders were highly literate men, subtle thinkers who did the best they could given their time and place

Everything You Know about the Constitution is Wrong contains not only fear-mongering, blatant lies, and ridiculous conspiracy, but also a few creative ideas about our Constitution. The author tried to market and capitalize on another Edward Snowden’s name in hopes that people would mistakenly buy this book looking for information about the real Edward JOSEPH Snowden—this is not above board, and he(?) should be ashamed. The constitution is a hypocritical, racist document from slave-owning white men, if you buy the liberal's PC nonsense.
