Posts Tagged ‘5th Amendment’

To all of my conservative friends: You cannot complain about Lois Lerner invoking her 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination and hold fast to your belief in the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Amendments. All of these rights are inalienable, including the 5th. If you’re against the 5th but you are for the 1st, 2nd, and 4th, you are no different than the Progressives who believe it is their right to pick and choose whether or not we should have the right to freedom of religion, speech, privacy, and the right to own weapons.

These are rights our Creator bestowed on us as inalienable. So, if you believe in the Constitution, you must accept the 5th Amendment as valid. You do have every right, however, to come to the conclusion that Lerner’s need to remain silent means that President Obama was lying when he said there was not “even a smidgen” of corruption, concerning the IRS’s targeting of conservative 501c-4 political action groups. Remember, Lerner was willing to lie about her involvement in the IRS targeting before she was under oath, but not after she was placed under oath. Obama’s remarks were not under oath, which definitely makes their verity suspect.
