Brennan takes oath on draft Constitution – without Bill of Rights
Quote:Oh, dear. This is probably not the symbolism the White House wanted.
Hours after CIA Director John Brennan took the oath of office – behind closed doors, far away from the press, perhaps befitting his status as America's top spy – the White House took pains to emphasize the symbolism of the ceremony.

“There's one piece of this that I wanted to note for you,” spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters gathered for their daily briefing. “Director Brennan was sworn in with his hand on an original draft of the Constitution that had George Washington's personal handwriting and annotations on it, dating from 1787.”

missing from the Constitution in 1787 is also quite symbolic: The Bill of Rights, which did not officially go into effect until December 1791 after ratification by states.

That means: No freedom of speech and of the press, no right to bear arms, no fourth amendment ban on “unreasonable searches and seizures,” and no right to a jury trial.
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
From my cold dead hands.
History, bad History, is being made by this Regime of Communists. Mark my words.
