Bobby Jindal: ‘America Didn’t Create Religious Liberty. Religious Liberty Created America.’

Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.) singled out President Obama as an impediment to economic growth and a threat to Americans’ freedom.

“This president has tried to trample on our Second Amendment rights, now he’s going after our First Amendment rights,” Jindal said in an exclusive interview with The Foundry. “I think that’s a very dangerous thing.”

Days after the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in two religious liberty cases challenging an Obamacare mandate, Jindal said he found the government’s actions troubling.

“America didn’t create religious liberty. Religious liberty created America,” he said. “It’s very dangerous for the federal government to presume they know better.”

Without the Founder's foresight we wouldn't and couldn't be the country we were and can be again.

           Bobby Jindal hit that nail square on the head  ! 

its ironic that the same week the supreme court listens to arguments from the Obama administration on the violation of our religious rights by the government.....Obama sees the pope. its like mixing peanut butter and mustard. our right and our religious rights are slowly being eliminated by this government...and we are being punished for speaking out. the war on Christians and pro constitutional rights are also being violated.

Frankly  isn't everyone upset for the congress people or senate people that are not screaming about religious liberty??  I sure am  makes me wonder what are they loyal too  Islam or what.

Thank you Bobby

Been a long time since something this profound has been spoken.

I finally hear a politician that I would want to vote for.  America is going down a lot faster than I EVER thought it would.

 BROVO, Gov. Jindal, I can't imagine anyone saying better. You are exactly right. Without the quest for our religious freedoms, we would NEVER have left England for the New World. Thank You sir.

The man spoke the truth.  Must be driving the libotards and atheists nuts!  Keep it up Bobby!!

Here in CA we have another India - heritage man on the Republican ticket for Governor. Neel Kashkari is a bright technocrat - we both graduated in Engineering from U/Illinois, but he went on to NASA and then to work in the Bush Administrations. I met him at a luncheon last week and found him quite charismatic.

Given his views on social issues and climate change, I hope he gets the chance to have a long talk with Bobby Jindal.

To support Bobby's view, I just finished a piece on a different view on religious freedom than Thomas Paine in his "Age of Reason." IMO we must change the argument from the tactics of the "progressives" to one based on our own foundations.

Attached is my humble effort.

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
