In a heated debate over same-sex marriage with Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore Thursday, CNN morning anchor Chris Cuomo exclaimed that Americans’ rights“do not come from God.” Cuomo’s abrupt response came after Judge Moore stated, “Our rights, contained in the Bill of Rights, do not come from the Constitution. They come from God. That’s clearly stated in the Declaration of Independence.”
Cuomo, a licensed attorney, sharply interrupted Judge Moore, arguing,“Our rights do not come from God, your honor, and you know that. “They come from man. … That’s your faith. That’s my faith, but that’s not our country. Our laws come from collective agreement and compromise.”
After the segment aired, Cuomo took to Twitter to vent. He tweeted:
“Natural law = universally recognized truth. To you, nature = God. Not all agree. That’s why ur religion is not the rule for all.”

My Take - This Cuomo is just as smarmy and snarky as his father and grandfather, and equally dumb - perfect presidential material for the party of treason. He's guilty of all the same things all leftists are guilty of in any debate.
They take reason off the table and replace it with emotional hyperbole. They get the facts wrong. They attempt to re-write history. They attempt to redefine words to fit their narrative. They unendingly interrupt others in order to prevent intelligent well reasoned comments from being heard. They make snide remarks that are nothing more than red herring fallacies to shift the conversation from the subject at hand. And they lie. Lies of commission and lies of omission.
There's one more thing Cuomo and his fellow comrades in the media and politics may wish to think about. If these rights, as outlined in the Constitution, are not from God but merely agreements between men then they're not rights, they're privileges - and temporary privileges at that, which can be revoked. And should society ever come to that conclusion we have to remember that this ability to revoke "rights" works both ways with whoever’s in power doing the revoking. That's anarchy or tyranny! And that’s why the founding fathers made it clear that our rights did not emanate from the Constitution, but the Constitution merely outlined those rights that were inherent from God. As Judge Andrew Napolitano stated in a recent article about how the Patriot Act violates the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution:
"If the terms and meaning of the Constitution could be changed by the secret whims of those in the executive branch into whose hands they have been reposed for safekeeping, of what value are they? No value. In such a world, our Constitution has become a worthless piece of paper."
Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson both believed in two things for sure. They believed in the concept stated by French King Louis XIV 'L'etat c'est moi' - "I am the state", expressing their view that the “king” held absolute political authority. However, in order to acquire that power in America they had to destroy the one thing that stood in their way - the U.S. Constitution, which they believe was an impediment to human progress. Those were the two things both presidents believed in and their actions clearly demonstrated that belief. It was the progressive movement that planted the seeds of our destruction by creating the Federal Reserve, and passing the 16th and 17th amendments, all under Wilson's watch in 1913. And here we are 101 years later
It’s also clear the left not only believed that then, they still believe it now, and have been working toward that goal since the late 19th century as the progressive movement. Their goal has always been to undermine, and eventually destroy the U.S. Constitution, via public education. Wilson wanted public education to make sure the apple fell as far away from the tree as possible. Meaning, the goal to public education was to make sure the state became the ultimate moral arbiter for human society in these students minds, not God and not these children’s parents. That remains the goal of public education today, and it has largely succeeded.
However, since the state has no stable moral foundation other than what’s expedient for those in power, and will easily adopt the latest philosophical flavor of the day, there are no rights! If the rights outlined in the Constitution are merely compromises and agreements, and not from God, there is no stable moral foundation and those rights become privileges that can be stripped at the whim of people like the Cuomo family. That should scare everyone!
