Pissant Arbitrage the Man who holds secrets only when they are about him!

Here's an excerpt from the forthcoming book Hubris authored by David Corn & Michael Isikoff and excerpted in an Isakoff Newsweek piece that has let the cat out of the bag officially "The Man Who Knew too Much". Sadly this Little Richard Arbitrage of US Secrets is not a fictional story like Alfred Hitchcock's and unlike Jimmy Stewart's character who valiantly will do anything to save his kidnapped son, Little Richard hides behind legalese with cover from Powell and State Department Lawyer Taft...Only two similarities between the James Stewart/Doris Day Hitchcock-Flick which depicts the protagonists character's family vacationing in Morocco while getting caught up in an assassination plot are
  1. Colin Powell, William Howard Taft IV, State Dept Lawyer and Armitage are like the conspirators, of the Hitchcock Movie, who were determined to prevent Day and Stewart from interfering/exposing their plot
  2. and it deals with the Middle East, as it takes place in Morocco.
Turns out that Little Richard the Arbitrage Trader of US Secrets is the very "Pissant"(his prefer term of derision) he accuses Frank Gaffney of being and the Jerk he accuses Cheney, Wolfowitz et. al. of being in this article by Jack Schafer entitled "Leak of the Week—Richard Armitage?"
  • "Just prior to joining the Bush administration'and accepting the gag that goes with it 'Armitage denounced Powell's critics to the Washington Post's Steven Mufson, saying, "Frank Gaffney, Gary Bauer, these pissants who have never served in uniform' who would you rather have represent the nation, them or Colin Powell?" "Pissant" seems to be one of Armitage's favorite terms of derision.
  • In a March 11, 2002, piece in The New Yorker, Seymour M. Hersh reported the angry response of a "senior State Department official" to Pentagon whispers that Armitage and Powell had lost their nerve. The official told Hersh he was ready to meet his "pissant" detractors in the Pentagon "anytime, anywhere." Sounds like Richard "Pissant" Armitage, doesn't it?"
From Isikoff piece The Man Who Knew too Much
  • "Armitage routinely returned from White House meetings shaking his head at the armchair warriors. "One day," says Powell's former chief of staff Larry Wilkerson, "we were walking into his office and Rich turned to me and said, 'Larry, these guys never heard a bullet go by their ears in anger ... None of them ever served. They're a bunch of jerks'."
Christoper Hitchens does the best deconstruction of this ridiculous charade by the Paleolithic Media and the Crocodile appeasing Left which has cost the US Taxpayer Millions with the Fitzgerald investigation and drained the energy of the Executive Branch's energy during a time when we are fighting an Islamo-Fascist Guerrilla Styled War with people who as Steyn states:
  • "The sad reality is that never before has an enemy hidden in such plain sight. Osama bin Laden declared a jihad against America in 1998. Iran's nuclear president vows to wipe Israel off the map. A year before the tube bombings, radical Brit imam Omar Bakri announced that a group of London Islamists are" 'ready to launch a big operation' "on British soil." 'We don't make a distinction between civilians and non-civilians, innocents and non-innocents," "he added, clarifying the ground rules." 'Only between Muslims and unbelievers. And the life of an unbeliever has no value.'
All this dangerous nonsense takes place to protect a Valerie Plame a paparazzi, social climbing Non-Covert Jethro Bodine-like Double Knot Spy(for she is no Emma Peal of("The Avengers" ). and Joe Wilson who was a diplomat who never was able to surge his way out the of Middle Pack State Department Diplomats who are assigned to backwater Countries until his wife gets him a gig in Niger eating Saddam's Yellow Cake lies for dessert!

By the way Pissant's definition is:
  • noun
    1.Slang (vulgar). a person or thing of no value or consequence; a despicable person or thing.
    2.Obsolete. an ant.
    3.Slang (vulgar). insignificant or worthless.
  • adj.
    1. Not important; insignificant: "Some pissant Texas court wants to make [the company] pay... more than $10 billion in reparations"
So this is the term I think fittingly fits the Real Life version and protagonist of the "The Man Who Knew too Much" Little Richard who has not a Lion's Heart, his buddy Joe Wilson and his accomplices in the State Department which should be shut down for it has succeeded where the South failed during the Civil War by seceding from the Union.....Pissant Little Richard the Arbitrage Trader of US Secrets is "The Man who Knew Too Much" but keeps secrets only when they may hurt him!

The US is Samson and the Left/Press is Delilah

Here's how I see the US represented by Samson and the Left depicted by Delilah!......this just before the Philistines(Islamic Jihadists) blind him!  I think I'm gonna photoshop this for the Blog!   F

Get your email and more, right on the new

The US has Blinded itself thanks to the Philistine Jimma Carter's Incompetence

The World has gone Crazy. The Bush Administration is getting Media and World Opinion Fatigue and losing its nerve. The GOP should be clobbering the left in light of the the Islamic Jihadist attacking Israel, Iraq, Afghanistan, India, Spain, England, Jordan and last week planning to hit the USA. The Cataclysmic US Airline Terrorist BIG GULP Blast Plan uncovered last week should be the shot in the arm needed for us to redouble our efforts and resolve to fight theses evil People. There are no limits to their hatred and the lengths to which they will go to kill us because of misguided delusions of Paradise!(Not even is a baby or his Mama's Milk sacrosanct for these blood thirsty lunatics)

  • From Wall Street Journal: "emerging details point to a troubling -- and growing -- strain in Islamic terrorism in Europe: the involvement of women and middle-class, university-educated young men "
  • Rand analyst Ms. Ali cites at least three female suicide bombers in Iraq, including an attack late last year by a Belgian woman who is believed to be the first Western woman to launch a suicide attack in the name of jihad.
  • Muslim women are increasingly talking publicly about jihad, and al Qaeda has launched a women's magazine in Saudi Arabia, she says.
  • Women also have served as suicide bombers in terrorist activities in Chechnya.
    • "Women feel just as enraged and disillusioned as men," says Rand's Ms. Ali. For terrorist groups, women present "a great tactical opportunity" because they are less likely to draw the attention of authorities.
Mullah Jimma (His-buddy-Lust) Carter Federal Judge appointee has taken away the modern day equivalent of American Indian Trackers who could find anyone by looking at footprints, broken twigs and listening to the ground when she ruled that the NSA Surveillance Act was unconstitutional. Thanks Judge Anna Diggs Taylor for blinding us against people who will kill you and any American in Heart Beat.

Mike Wallace has become a Acne-0n-A-Binge-Job 12th Imam Channeling sycophant who wants to Nuke everybody starting with Israeli's.

From Little Green Footballs
  • President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad disappeared for several hours. He was having a khalvat (tete-a-tete) with the Hidden Imam, the 12th and last of the imams of Shiism who went into "grand occultation" in 941. According to Shia lore, the Imam is a messianic figure who, although in hiding, remains the true Sovereign of the World. In every generation, the Imam chooses 36 men, (and, for obvious reasons, no women) naming them the owtad or "nails", whose presence, hammered into mankind's existence, prevents the universe from "falling off". Although the "nails" are not known to common mortals, it is, at times, possible to identify one thanks to his deeds. It is on that basis that some of Ahmad-inejad’s more passionate admirers insist that he is a "nail", a claim he has not discouraged. For example, he has claimed that last September, as he addressed the United Nations’'General Assembly in New York, the "Hidden Imam drenched the place in a sweet light".
    Last year, it was after another khalvat that Ahmadinejad announced his intention to stand for president. Now, he boasts that the Imam gave him the presidency for a single task: provoking a "clash of civilisations" in which the Muslim world, led by Iran, takes on the "infidel" West, led by the United States, and defeats it in a slow but prolonged contest that, in military jargon, sounds like a low intensity, asymmetrical war.
    In Ahmadinejad's analysis, the rising Islamic "superpower" has decisive advantages over the infidel. Islam has four times as many young men of fighting age as the West, with its aging populations. Hundreds of millions of Muslim "ghazis" (holy raiders) are keen to become martyrs while the infidel youths, loving life and fearing death, hate to fight. Islam also has four-fifths of the world's oil reserves, and so controls the lifeblood of the infidel. More importantly, the US, the only infidel power still capable of fighting, is hated by most other nations.
Just like Samson had his eyes put out by The Philistines, who put Delilah.
up to the treachery...

Judges 16:19-21

And she made him sleep upon her knees; and she called for a man, and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head; and she began to afflict him, and his strength went from him. And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the Lord was departed from him. But the Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza, and bound him down to Gaza, and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison house. (KJV)

  • The Philistines, thinking that the strength which had made Samson familiar to them must be due to some magical charm, seek to find out what it is. Their princes, probably the five mentioned in Judges, iii, 3, and elsewhere, coming to Delilah, to whose house Samson often resorted -- if he did not live there -- say: "Deceive him, and learn of him wherein his great strength lieth, and how we may be able to overcome him, to bind and afflict him: which if thou shalt do, we will give thee every one of us eleven hundred pieces of silver" (verse 5). This sum must have appeared enormous to Delilah. She undertakes to discover the secret of Samson's strength and the means to overcome it. Four different times she asks him to tell her his secret, having each time a number of Philistines on hand to seize him if she can cajole him into betraying it. Samson at first indulges his humor in answers which allow him to laugh at her attempts to bind him; but finally her importunity prevails, and he tells her of his consecration as a Nazarite and of the necessity of keeping his long hair, the mark of the consecration. Delilah then causes this hair to be cut off while Samson sleeps, and hands him over to his enemies who bring him a prisoner to Gaza.
It seems to me that United States could be compared to the Biblical Samson, who like him is big, strong and God fearing but has many faults and failings him as well. the USA has been blinded by the Liberal Left and the personification of Delilah is Judge Anna Diggs Taylor. The Modern Day Philistines of Iran and its Proxies Hezbollah, Syrian and the Lebanese Puppet Government are using the Delilahs of the Liberal Press and the misguided suicidal/homicidal Delilahs among its Muslims women to try and destroy the USA a Modern Day Samson...

Anonymous....Sirhan Sirhan was not such a devote Catholic and it is doubtful he even could even be considered one was even one at all!....

Not so fast Anonymous:  Sirhan Bishara Sirhan was born March 19, 1944, in Jerusalem, Palestine, the fifth son of Palestinians Bishara and Mary (Muzher) Sirhan. The family practiced Maronite Catholicism but religiously Sirhan was shopping around.... His doctrines changed often, the ones holding the longest interest being Baptist, Seventh Day Adventist and several forms of occultism.. I incorrectly thought Sirhan to be a Muslim, but none the less as a Maronite Catholic he was most certainly would be considered apostate....
  • ( Eastern Catholic Church in full communion with the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church).
  • Their heritage reaches back to Maron in the early 5th century. The first Maronite patriarch, John Maron, was appointed in the late 7th century. Today, they are one of the principal religious groups in Lebanon.
Sirhan Sirhan as an adult frequently changed his religious thoughts, to Baptist, Seventh-day Adventist, and Rosicrucianism.[1](According to Émile Dantinne (1884–1969), the origins of the Rosicrucians may have an Islamic connection)" 
The SUS(Special Unit Senator) created by investigators of RFK's murder was created by Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Brosio, members of the Los Angeles District Attorney office, FBI agent William Nolin, and the LAPD's Chief of Detectives Robert A.Houghton, because "(The case) had historical potential…Because the murder had been committed in Los Angeles, we (LAPD) had jurisdiction. Houghton  wanted all of the assistance and advice he could get (so) we created the SUS." The acronym stood for Special Unit Senator.
Sirhan Sirhan was a Palestinian-born anti-Jewish Arab
"Although he felt strongly about the Middle East situation and expressed the belief that he was ‘disenfranchised from the American establishment,’ Sirhan did not belong to a political party. But (it appeared that he) supported the Baath Party, which operated in the Middle East."
As for his motive in killing Robert Kennedy, the SUS sought that amid the lines of scratch on the pages of his notebooks. Los Angeles alerted the FBI, and within the hour, representatives from all involved law offices were swarming across the lawns of a small frame house at 696 East Howard, Pasadena. Adel, co-owner of the house along with his mother, allowed the police to enter and search. The officers zeroed in on Sirhan Sirhan’s room. There they found an odd assortment of his own writings in a notebook on his desk; hate remarks about Senator Kennedy. One scribble read simply, "RFK must die."Scrawlings between their covers brought hard accusation. They read, "RFK must die," "Robert F. Kennedy must be assassinated before June 5, 1968," and "My determination to eliminate RFK is becoming more (and) more of an unshakable obsession…(He) must be sacrificed for the cause of the poor exploited people."
Furthermore Anonymous, with regard to the Islamic question Kennedy was murdered almost 40 years ago but today most of the Terrorist are Muslims who kill other Muslims form other sects and so called "Infidels" like us.  The Terrorist are of all Nationalities(see below) but the common denominator uniting them is their Islamic Religion!.....
  • ‘Homegrown terrorists’ arraigned in court Documents: Group sought to ‘kill all the devils we can,’ eyed Sears Tower were all nice Muslim boys

  • In March 2006, Mohammad Reza Taheri-azar, a 22-year-old Iranian native who graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in December and was a nice Muslim fella, rented a Jeep Cherokee Laredo from a local rent-a-car dealership and launched his attack against college students.  Nine people were injured — none seriously — in Taheri-azar's rampage. On Monday, he made his first appearance in Orange County District Court, where prosecutors read out the 18 charges levied against him, including nine counts of attempted murder.

    • Taheri-azar has not exactly been ambiguous about his motives. "I'm thankful you're here to give me this trial and to learn more about the will of Allah," Taheri-azar said to District Court Judge Pat DeVine. More information will likely come to light in coming weeks, but this much is clear: Taheria-azar intended his attack as a response to U.S. foreign policy, and by doing so he thought that he would be viewed as a martyr by radical Islamists who promote terror worldwide.

  • Sgt. Hasan Akbar, found guilty of murder in 2003 attack against fellow American Soldeirs was a nice Muslim Trooper!... 

  • Canadian Beheading Plot

    • Suspect Accused Of Plan To Storm Parliament, Kill MPs And Prime Minister.At least one member of a group of terror suspects plotted to storm Canada's parliament and behead officials, including the prime minister, if Muslim prisoners in Canada and Afghanistan were not released, according to charges made public Tuesday.

To ensure we Americans never offend anyone....

This is a great Email Change letter I received from a Friend and it is Spot on! 
The common denominator to Terrorism today fits a Pattern that goes back a generation!... 
American Indian Scouts would but their ear to the ground to listen for galloping Buffalo, Herds of Wild Mustangs and the US Calvary!  Wake up America the Islamo-Fascists have started GWlJ(Global War on Islamic-Jihad) and did so many years ago. Much to the disdain of the Paleolithic Media whether they are lone wackos or gang wackos these people are all Radical Muslims!....Men of the West awaken form your slumber!...
Dominus vobiscum, Francis
To ensure we Americans never offend anyone....
  • To ensure we Americans never offend anyone -- particularly
    fanatics intent on killing us -- law enforcement and security
    screeners are not allowed to "profile" people in public places or
    security checkpoints. However, they will continue to perform
    random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots
    with proper identification, Secret Service agents who are members
    of the President's security detail, 85-year-old congressmen with

    President George Bush said this week, "America is at war with
    Islamic fascists who will use any means to destroy those of us
    who love freedom, to hurt our nation." The Council on
    American-Islamic Relations issued an immediate objection to the
    President's reference to "Islamic fascists". Nihad Awad,
    executive director of CAIR protested, "We have to isolate these
    individuals because there is nothing in the Koran or the Islamic
    faith that encourages people to be cruel or to be vicious or to
    be criminal. Muslims world wide know that for sure." In light of
    this objection, we are left to ponder why every Islamic leader in
    the U.S., and the world, does not publicly condemn every terror
    action being undertaken in the name of the god of Islam. Their
    silence is deafening...

    Between 1970 and present, there were more than 60 other notable
    examples of terrorism perpetrated by Middle Eastern male
    Islamists between the ages 17 and 40, but we think you get the
    point. Singling out "Middle Eastern male Islamists between the
    ages 17 and 40" is not "ethnic profiling," it's "terrorist
    profiling" -- acting on prolific evidence.

    Anyone for Terrorist Profiling?

Olympian Mitt Romney he is smarter than your average Politician!

Mitt Romney who has been dubbed "Matinee Mitt" by the Washington Post's Political blogger, Chris Cillizza gets an A+ for creativity when raising money for his Potential 2008 Presidential Bid.  In addition to a federal Political Action Committee the man who natched the Salt Lake 2002 Winter Olympics19 Nov  2001: The High Priestess, Thalia Prokopiou lights the torch of the first torch bearer Lefteris Fafalis of Greece in the Pierre de Coubertin Grove in Olympia, Greece from the fiscal insolvency(see this Havrad Law Review Bulletin for details) and from becoming a Broadway Comedy "A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum" staring Zero Mostel and Buster Keaton ala Athens 2004 Games gets a sprinters start out of the Blocks in the 08 Presidential Race.  $3.4 million sitting in his War Chest!  Romney has a Commonwealth PAC with five state-based groups or branches
  • (Michigan, Iowa, South Carolina, New Hamsphire and Arizona which is not activated yet but perched on deck!) 
that allow donors to go well beyond the federal $2k limits as prescribed by "McCain-Fiengold Finance Reform" 
  • The Michigan and Iowa PACs have no limits on donations.
  • New Hampshire as a ceiling of $5K . 
  • South Carolina comes in at $3.5k
The first four states represent early heats in the Olympics of Politics in the USA.
Me thinks "Matinee Mitt" could also be dubbed Magnate Mitt!  That Harvard MBA came in handy as it has infused this enormously capable Man and Politician an entrepreneurial spirit that keep pals Senators McCain and Fiengold from elbowing out!  Additionally Magnate Mitt has the Upper House's Imprimatur of a Juris Prudence from Harvard too!  Sorry to the Rino, Senator McCain whose Mutiny from the GOP and
Senator Foolsgold's alchemy combined is not enough to keep this son of a former Michigan Govenor and now a Govenor himself aka "Matinee Mitt" from making a strong showing at the Olympic Trials of US Politics......I like his chances and as a Roman Catholic Voter I remember then Senator's JFK's words in his 1960's speech to the Greater Houston Ministerial Association
Text of Kennedy's Speech
Reverend Meza, Reverend Reck, I'm grateful for your generous invitation to speak my views.....

While the so-called religious issue is necessarily and properly the chief topic here tonight, I want to emphasize from the outset that we have far more critical issues to face in the 1960 election; the spread of Communist influence until it now festers 90 miles off the coast of Florida--the humiliating treatment of our President and Vice-President by those who no longer respect our power--the hungry children I saw in West Virginia, the old people who cannot pay their doctor bills, the families forced to give up their farms--an America with too many slums, with too few schools, and too late to the moon and outer space.
These are the real issues which should decide this campaign. And they are not religious issues --for war and hunger and ignorance and despair know no religious barriers.

But because I am a Catholic, and no Catholic has ever been elected President, the real issues in this campaign have been obscured--perhaps deliberately, in some quarters less responsible than this. So it is apparently necessary for me to state once again--not what kind of church I believe in--for that should be important only to me--but what kind of America I believe in.

I believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute--where no Catholic prelate would tell the President (should he be Catholic) how to act, and no Protestant ministers would tell their parishioners for whom to vote--where no church or church school is granted any public funds or political preference--and where no man is denied public office merely because his religion differs from the President who might appoint him or the people who might elect him.

I believe in an America that is officially neither Catholic, Protestant, nor Jewish--where no public official either requests or accepts instruction on public policy from the Pope, the National Council of Churches or any other ecclesiastical source--where no religious body seeks to impose its will directly or indirectly on the general populace or the public acts of its officials--where religious liberty is so indivisible that an act against one church is treated as an act against all.

For while this year it may be a Catholic against whom the finger of suspicion is pointed, in other years it has been, and may someday be again, a Jew--or a Quaker--or a Unitarian--or a Baptist. It was Virginia's harassment of Baptist preachers, for example, that helped lead to Jefferson's Statute of Religious Freedom. Today, I may be the victim--but tomorrow it may be you- -until the whole fabric of our harmonious society is ripped at a time of great National peril.

Finally, I believe in an America where religious intolerance will someday end--where all men and all churches are treated as equal--where every man has the right to attend or not attend the church of his choice--where there is no Catholic vote, no anti-Catholic vote, no bloc voting of any kind--where Catholics, Protestants and Jews, at both the lay and pastoral level, will refrain from those attitudes of disdain and division which have so often marred their works in the past, and promote instead the American ideal of brotherhood.

This is the kind of America in which I believe. And it represents the kind of Presidency in which I believe--a great office which must neither be humbled by making it the instrument of any one religious group nor tarnished by arbitrarily withholding its occupancy from the members of any one religious group. I believe in a President whose religious views are his own private affair, neither imposed by him upon the nation nor imposed by the nation upon him as a condition to holding that office.

I would not look with favor upon a President working to subvert the first amendment's guarantees of religious liberty. Nor would our system of checks and balances permit him to do so- -and neither do I look with favor upon those who would work to subvert Article VI of the Constitution by requiring a religious test--even by indirection--for it. If they disagree with that safeguard they should be out openly working to repeal it.

I want a Chief Executive whose public acts are responsible to all groups and obligated to none--who can attend any ceremony, service or dinner his office may appropriately require of him- -and who's fulfillment of his Presidential oath is not limited or conditioned by any religious oath, ritual or obligation.

This is the kind of America I believe in--and this is the kind I fought for in the South Pacific, and the kind my brother died for in Europe. No one suggested then that we may have a "divided loyalty", that we "did not believe in liberty", or that we belonged to a disloyal group that threatened "freedom for which our forefathers died."

And in fact, this is the kind of America for which our forefathers died--when they fled here to escape religious test oaths that denied office to members of less favored churches--when they fought for the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom-- and when the fought at the shrine I visited today, the Alamo. For side by side with Bowie and Crockett died McCafferty and Bailey and Carey--but no one knows whether they were Catholic or not. For there was no religious test at the Alamo.

I ask you tonight to follow in that tradition--to judge on the basis of my record of 14 years in Congress--on my declared stands against an Ambassador to the Vatican, against unconstitutional aid to parochial schools, and against any boycott of the public schools (which I have attended myself)--instead of judging me on the basis of these pamphlets and publications we have all seen that carefully select quotations out of context from the statements of Catholic church leaders, usually in other countries, frequently in other centuries, and always omitting, of course, the statement of American Bishops in 1948 which strongly endorsed our church-state separation, and which more nearly reflects the views of almost every American Catholic.

I do not consider these other quotations binding upon my public acts--why should you? But let me say, with respect to other countries, that I am wholly opposed to the state being used by any religious group, Catholic or Protestant, to compel, prohibit, or persecute the free exercise of any other religion. And I hope that you and I condemn with equal fervor those nations which deny their Presidency to Protestants and those which deny it to Catholics. And rather than cite the misdeeds of those who differ, I would cite the record of the Catholic church in such nations as Ireland and France--and the independence of such statesmen as Adenauer and De Gaulle.

But let me stress again that these are my views--for contrary to common Newspaper usage--I am not the Catholic candidate for President. I am the Democratic Party's candidate for President who happens also to be a Catholic. I do not speak for my church on public matters--and the church does not speak for me.

Whatever issue may come before me as President--on birth control, divorce, censorship, gambling or any other subject--I will make my decision in accordance with these views, in accordance with what my conscience tells me to be the national interest, and without regard to outside religious pressures or dictates. And no power or threat of punishment could cause me to decide otherwise.

But if the time should ever come--and I do not concede any conflict to be even remotely possible--when my office would require me to either violate my conscience or violate the national interest, then I would resign the office; and I hope any conscientious public servant would do the same.

But I do not intend to apologize for the views to my critic of either Catholic or Protestant faith--nor do I intend to disavow either my views or my church in order to win this election.

If I should lose on the real issues, I shall return to my seat in the Senate, satisfied that I had tried my best and was fairly judged. But if this election is decided on the basis that 40 million Americans lost their chance of being President on the day they were baptized, then it is the whole nation that will be the loser, in the eyes of Catholics and non-Catholics around the world, and in the eyes of our own people.

But if, on the other hand, I should win the election, then I shall devote every effort of mind and spirit to fulfilling the oath of the Presidency--practically identical, I might add, to the oath I have taken for 14 years in the Congress. For without reservation, I can "solemnly swear 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...So Help Me God."
