Lawmaker Who Wants Trump Assassinated Just Got Slammed With Massive Bad News

No matter how you feel about President Trump, you don’t call for his assassination. Ever. And now that she’s been slammed with a spate of massive bad news, Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal is finding that out the hard way.

Chappelle-Nadal posted “I hope Trump is assassinated!” in a Facebook conversation last week. After initially refusing to apologize, she relented and gave a mea culpa at a Sunday news conference — although she refused to heed calls for her resignation.

“President Trump, I apologize to you and your family,” Chappelle-Nadal said. “I made a mistake, and I’m owning up to it. And I’m not ever going to make a mistake like that again.”

That didn’t help smooth things over for Chappelle-Nadal, however. Now, 44,000 individuals have signed a petition demanding the lawmaker be removed and arrested, she’s been stripped of all of her committee assignments, the state’s most influential newspaper has openly called for her resignation and the Missouri state legislature may meet to expel the controversial Democrat.

The Change.org petition, which is addressed to Republican U.S. Rep. Ann Wagner from Missouri’s 2nd District, notes that threatening the president’s life isn’t just a faux pas.

“US Code Title 18, Section 871 clearly states that any threat to the President is considered a political offense,” the petition reads. “This is punishable up to 5 years in prison and $250,000 maximum fine. We cannot allow someone such as a State Senator who knowingly knew her position, took it for granted and used that to say whatever she wanted against our current President of the United States.”

According to Fox News, Chappelle-Nadal’s nine committee assignments have also been taken away from her after the threat against the president.

“I support the decision of Senate Minority Leader Gina Walsh to remove Sen. Chappelle-Nadal from all of her Senate committees,” Republican Senate President Pro Tem Ron Richard said. “I am also removing her from all appointments under my authority.”

On Monday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch — Missouri’s most influential newspaper, which is hardly known as a bastion of covert #MAGAism — unequivocally called for Chappelle-Nadal’s resignation in a scathing editorial.

“There are times when unequivocal contrition should be enough to clear the air and move on. This, sadly, is not one of those times,” the Post-Dispatch wrote. “Rarely has such a disparate political chorus sung in such complete harmony in Missouri. Yet, Chappelle-Nadal isn’t getting the message. No matter how angry she was at Trump for his lax condemnation of the white supremacists who marched in Charlottesville, Va., on Aug. 12, no clear-thinking public figure would express hopes for his assassination.”

The Post-Dispatch also noted that if she refused to resign, “(t)he likely alternative is expulsion.” And, indeed, Missouri Lt. Gov. Mike Parson has asked the upper chamber of the state legislature to enter special session for just that purpose.

“I do not make this request of you lightly, but you and I know it is the right course of action to take for the people of Missouri,” Parson, a Republican, wrote to the Missouri Senate in a Tuesday letter.

It would require a two-thirds majority in the Senate to expel Chappelle-Nadal, but from the looks of things, that won’t be hard to achieve. And, after all, Chappelle-Nadal has no one to blame but herself. Even her weak-sauce apology (why are public officials forever “owning up to” or “taking full responsibility for” scandals and and mistakes where nobody was assigning ownership or responsibility to anyone else?) shows that she doesn’t understand the full gravity of threatening the nation’s chief executive with assassination.

Chappelle-Nadal has crossed the line — and if the authorities refuse to arrest her for it, the loss of her seat is literally the least that can happen. Whether it comes through resignation or expulsion is ultimately the senator’s choice, but she oughtn’t pretend she has any other options.

Anybody interested in starting a pot on how many days it takes before Sen Dumbass pulls the race card and claims this is all about white supremacy?

I'll take Oct. 13   ;' /

$5 says 6 days, the race card will be baited and hung.

9/1/17

I figured when everybody started demanding she resign she would have pulled it out already....

my date is partially based on how slow I expect the 'official'' political process to apply pressure on her that she actually feels.  ...if by some miracle that actually was to happen.

Well here we go............   It doesn't say SHE made the claim, but someone did:


Special Session Called to Oust Missouri Senator Who Wanted Trump DEAD

The Democrat has faced increasing pressure to resign from her seat, something that to this point she is refusing to do but she may no longer have much say in the matter as the wheels are in motion to forcibly oust her from the state legislature.

Lt. Governor Mike Parson who is a Republican, sent out a letter requesting a special session that would be convened to throw her out of the state government.

Via St. Louis television station KMOV 4 “Special session possible to oust Chappelle-Nadal”:

The backlash continues for Democratic Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal from a posted comment on Facebook last week that expressed hope that President Donald Trump would be assassinated.

Republican Lt. Gov. Mike Parson sent a letter to senators Tuesday urging Chappelle-Nadal be expelled. “I am calling on the Missouri Senate to go into special session in conjunction with Veto Session, with the purpose of expelling Senator Chappelle-Nadal from the body under the authority vested to the Senate under Article III, Section 18 of the Missouri Constitution.”

Chappelle-Nadal offered a personal apology to the president and his family on Sunday but has resisted calls to resign. Missouri U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill, Congressman Lacy Clay and the Missouri Democratic Party have called for her resignation.

Sen. Paul Wieland of Jefferson County and Sen. Dave Schatz of Franklin County, both Republicans, told News 4 if Chappelle-Nadal doesn’t step down, the senate should step in and remove her from office.

Parson’s request for a special session came hours after Republican and Democratic state Senate leaders removed Chappelle-Nadal from all of her legislative committee assignments.

There will certainly be cries of protest from her defenders that she just made a mistake and is being unjustly persecuted for being a successful black woman, some may even suggest that she is being lynched.

Protests will likely take place if and when the special session commences but she has nobody to blame but herself for what was an incredibly stupid act.

Social media is monitored by political opponents and other citizens looking to hold their elected officials accountable and this dummy thought that she would be immune to the consequences for her actions.

Now that it has been made clear by both the Governor and Lieutenant Governor as well as the head of the state Democratic party that she has to go, Chappelle-Nadal must resign or she will be yanked out like a rotten tooth.

ALERT ALERT

Newt Says What The Rest Of Us Are Thinking:
It’s Time To Throw Peter Strzok In Jail

Disgraced FBI special agent Peter Strzok, a senior member of the bureau who gained notoriety in recent months over his anti-Trump text messages to a colleague, was grilled for nearly 10 hours during a joint congressional committee hearing on Thursday.

At issue was Strzok’s anti-Trump texts to former FBI lawyer and lover Lisa Page that coincided with his leading of the investigations into both former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server scandal and the alleged Trump/Russia 2016 election collusion, as well as his involvement in the subsequent Robert Mueller special counsel probe.

The hearing proved to be a heated battle, as Strzok displayed an arrogant smugness in defiance of pointed questions from Republicans that he largely danced around, while Democrats sought to upend and undermine the entire hearing with a plethora of interruptions, parliamentary maneuvers and outright praise for the man who helped let Clinton off the hook while ferociously targeting Trump.

Former House speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich was less than impressed with Strzok’s performance and cooperation in the hearing and suggested during an appearance on Fox Business that the FBI agent should be held in contempt of Congress.

“I think they have to move to hold him in contempt and throw him in jail,” Gingrich said of Congress and Strzok.

“This is a person who is willfully standing up and refusing to appear as a congressional witness and he was a government employee at the time,” he continued.

“He has every obligation to inform the legislative branch, and I don’t think they have any choice except to move a motion of contempt because he is fundamentally — and so is his girlfriend (Page) — they’re both fundamentally in violation of the entire constitutional process,” he added.

Page had been subpoenaed to appear before Congress on Wednesday but refused to appear, saying she’d been unable to review relevant documents prior to the scheduled hearing, a closed-door hearing that has since been rescheduled for Friday.

Gingrich was not the only one who thought Strzok deserved to be held in contempt of Congress, as House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte informed Strzok that he remained at risk of such during the hearing, according to The Daily Caller.

That warning from Goodlatte came after Strzok had refused to answer a straightforward question posed by House Oversight Committee chairman Trey Gowdy, regarding how many people Strzok had personally interviewed between a specific set of dates in relation to the Clinton email investigation.

“Mr. Strzok, please be advised that you can either comply with the committee’s direction to answer the question or refuse to do so,” Goodlatte stated. “The latter of which will place you in risk of a contempt citation and potential criminal liability. Do you understand that? The question is directed to the witness.”

Strzok still refused to answer, citing instructions received from his counsel and the FBI to not answer certain questions on certain topics.

Goodlatte replied, “Mr. Strzok, in a moment we will continue with the hearing, but based on your refusal to answer the question, at the conclusion of the day we will be recessing the hearing and you will be subject to recall to allow the committee to consider proceeding with a contempt citation.”

It is unclear if Goodlatte and the committee ultimately did consider a contempt citation for Strzok following the contentious hearing, nor is it clear if Page will be held in contempt for blowing off her subpoenaed appearance on Wednesday.

Hopefully Congress will follow through on the threats of contempt followed by actual jail time against Strzok and Page in response to their uncooperative behavior and failure to appear when subpoenaed, if only to ensure that future witnesses called before Congress for sensitive or contentious hearings don’t think they can get away with the same sort of behavior.

TEA PARTY TARGET

Cops Sent To Seize Veteran’s Guns Without A Warrant, He Refused To Turn Them Over

“No one from the state was going to take my firearms without due process,” says Leonard Cottrell, after successfully staving off law enforcement and the courts from confiscating his firearms. Cottrell, an Iraq War veteran, was at work when he received a phone call from his wife. The cops were there, busting in to take his guns away. It all started after a casual conversation his son had at school.

Ammoland reports:

Police said their visit was sparked by a conversation that Leonard Cottrell Jr.’s 13-year-old son had had with another student at the school. Cottrell said he was told his son and the other student were discussing security being lax and what they would have to do to escape a school shooting at Millstone Middle School.

The conversation was overheard by another student, who went home and told his parents, and his mother panicked. The mom then contacted the school, which contacted the State Police, according to Cottrell.

The visit from the troopers came around 10 p.m. on June 14, 2018, Cottrell said, a day after Gov. Phil Murphy signed several gun enforcement bills into law.

After several hours, Cottrell said police agreed not to take the guns but to allow him to move them to another location while the investigation continued.

“They had admitted several times that my son made no threat to himself or other students or the school or anything like that,” he said.

Cottrell said he made it very clear to the police that he was “not going to willingly give up my constitutional rights where there’s no justifiable cause, no warrants, no nothing.”

The troopers searched his son’s room and found nothing, Cottrell said.

“To appease everybody, I had my firearms stored someplace else,” he said. “That way, during the course of the investigation, my son doesn’t have access to them and it’s on neutral ground and everything and everybody’s happy.”

“In the Garden State, the usual approach is to confiscate first and ask questions later, and victims of this approach often don’t know their rights. ‎In this case, the victim pushed back and confiscation was avoided — but the circumstances surrounding the incident are outrageous. A student expressing concern over lack of security is not a reason to send police to the student’s home — but it might be a reason to send police to the school to keep students and teachers safe” said Scott L. Bach, executive director of the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs and a member of the NRA board of directors.

NJ.com adds:

Cottrell, a disabled U.S. Army veteran who served three tours during “Operation Iraqi Freedom,” owns a shotgun and a pistol. He has all the correct permits to own the firearms, he said, and predominately uses the shotgun to hunt.

He said his wife allowed the officers to enter the home, and with her permission, they searched his son’s room — but they did not find any weapons, he said. The officers, he said, didn’t have a warrant but still wanted to take his guns. Cottrell wouldn’t let them.

“No one from the state was going to take my firearms without due process,” he said Thursday.

He said the attempted seizure resulted because of a new law Gov. Phil Murphy signed into law that makes it easier for police to confiscate guns when someone in the state poses a threat to themselves or others. The law is part of a broader statewide effort to make New Jersey’s gun laws even tougher amid the national outcry for more gun control in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Cottrell said the officers “danced around the issue” when he confronted them about the new law.

A New Jersey State Police spokesman declined to answer questions about whether this incident had anything to do with the new gun laws.

In an email, Sgt. First Class Jeff Flynn said, “Troopers responded to Mr. Cottrell’s residence in reference to the report of a possible school threat. Based on their investigation, it was determined that Mr. Cottrell’s weapons did not need to be seized.”

David Codrea, writing for Ammoland, further added:

To appease everybody, I had my firearms stored someplace else,” New Jersey gun owner and Army veteran Leonard Cottrell Jr. told New Jersey 101.5 after a June 14 visit from State Police,. “That way, during the course of the investigation, my son doesn’t have access to them and it’s on neutral ground and everything and everybody’s happy.”

Cottrell was recalling state troopers showing up at his door to confiscate firearms after his 13-year-old son was overheard discussing lax school safety with a friend.

Indoctrinated by a pervasive snitch culture — one that never seems to deter the blatantly obvious demonic nutjobs — the eavesdropping student told his parents, who told school administrators, who in turn called the cops. (Note “If you see something, say something” carries risks of its own – if you report the wrong person, you could end up smeared as a “hater.”)

“Cottrell said he made it very clear to the police that he was ‘not going to willingly give up my constitutional rights where there’s no justifiable cause, no warrants, no nothing,’” the report continued. Despite that, his home is now a “gun free zone” and that has been publicized by the media. He has, in fact, willingly ceded those rights, and by his own words in order to make authorities “happy.”

Before judging him for that, consider the environment that is New Jersey. Then consider the overwhelming force the state can bring to bear, and its predisposition to using it, especially if it’s to enforce citizen disarmament. It’s easy to anonymously declare “Molon Labe” on the internet. In meatspace, resistance is more effective when the aggressor doesn’t get to dictate the time and place, especially if that place is your home and you have family inside.

Appeasing gun-grabbers, generally couched as “compromise,” is impossible. It’s like throwing a scrap of flesh to a circling pack of jackals and expecting them to be sated and leave you alone — instead of sensing opportunity and fear, and moving in closer.
