The Supreme Court announced Tuesday it will hear a case challenging President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, which could shield as many as 5 million immigrants from deportations. 
 
Activists expected the court to take up the lawsuit. The programs have been on hold since early last year, when a federal judge in Texas stopped them from taking effect. 
 
A favorable decision for the president would allow the programs to go into place, restoring a key legacy achievement just months before he will leave office. The decision could also have wide-ranging implications for the 2016 election, where immigration has been a pivotal issue.
 
The Supreme Court will decide the case by the end of its current term, which ends in June, just five months before Election Day. Oral arguments are expected in April.
 
Immigrant-rights activists cheered the court’s decision. 
 
“We applaud the court’s decision to hear the case and we hope it fully considers the sound legal reasoning behind the president’s administrative relief,” said Ben Monterroso, executive director of Mi Familia Vota
 
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who is leading the 26 states who brought the lawsuit, said the court’s choice shows it “recognizes the importance of the separation of powers.”
 
“The court should affirm what President Obama said himself on more than 20 occasions: that he cannot universally rewrite congressional laws and circumvent the people’s representatives,” he said in a statement.

Colonel, I have added your info about the Grand Jury to what I had posted previously.

The REAL TEETH that should be in the Constitution is a CITIZENS GOVERNMENT OVERSIGHT COMMISSION which is solely concerned with violations of the Constitutional Oath of Office.. 1 representative per state,  serving 1 one year term. Three leaders, Chairman, vice Chairman and secretary. Those positions chosen by a straw draw. The three positions rotated via a straw draw every year.

All civil complaints of a Constitutional nature are to be made to this Commission.

All civil complaints of Constitutional violations are reviewed on a daily basis and the the participants are kept apprised with daily updates from civil inputs in each state.

The Commission will have the authority to convene a Grand Jury in accordance with the Fifth Amendment to this Constitution for the purpose of determination of indictment of suspected Oath of Office violators.

This Commission should have immediate firing authority over ALL federal employees.

The United States Attorney General  should be under its authority in all Constitutional matters.

This Commission will have override authority in all matters which the Supreme Court has rendered a decision.

The United States Marshals Office should be under its authority.


Now the above is just a rough idea of what could be done to solve the problem it need further thinking and more detail.. I know damn good and well, someone is going to say it expands the government which is absolutely false. These positions are not related in anyway with the Federal government. They would be an arm of the people.

So if we really want anything short of a second revolution we had better think along these lines.

It would pay for itself in the money saved from the massive corruption which is now a way of life in the DC.

Colonel, I like your comment except for the last paragraph,

"The rules and standards for Impeachment are whatever Congress determines them to be... Period."

Congress, that is where over 90% of our problems lie.

Criminals or Immigrants… Raiders or Builders

Our forefather’s left their homes… with no guarantee of security or prosperity, to venture into the wilderness of a New World. They came when there were no food stamps or social services; no Wal- Marts or parking lots, too brave the wilderness and too fashion a nation; too bequeath that nation to their Children and their children’s children.  Our forefather’s carved a nation out of the wilderness, purged the land with their sweet, blood and tears; looking not for a hand out or hand up. They came with nothing and left us everything.

These new age of criminal migrants… come with their hands extended, fists shaking, demanding that the natives feed them and cater to their every need.  They come, not looking to build a nation, but to raid a people.  They come not too join us, but divide us; too, loot the wealth of generations.  These are not IMMIGRANTS, they are raiders, thieves and deceitful individuals; who were to lazy too build their own house, too raise a nation of prosperous, hard working souls, where they were born…

These are not the blood of our ancestors… nor the kinsmen of prosperity and hard work.  If they were, they would have remained at home and made the land yield to their industry… but they did not. They saw their neighbor’s house and spied his possessions and determined to lay siege upon it; too, rob it and to abuse their neighbor and his children. These are not our kinsmen nor our father’s kind.

Our Immigrant Father’s were a different breed altogether… brave souls, whose steel and sinew broke the sod of generations, planted the fields with liberty, and rode tall in their seats of honor, as they forged a Nation out of the wilderness.  These new migrants are the merchants of want and the harbingers of strife; who bear the seeds of poverty and the winds of despair. They come expecting to reap, where our father’s have sown; too, take where they have not labored.  Send them home, that they may work in their own fields, where they may take pride in braking the ground and reaping what they have sown.

The illegals are invaders and their weapon is our Constitution and the political pandering prostitutes in both the white house and Congress who ONLY care about votes and staying in power so that they can repay the members of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Business Round Table who help keep them in office.

ALERT ALERT

Pay-Back !!! Pedophile Who Assaulted Nearly 200 Kids Stabbed To Death In Prison

A convicted pedophile who abused almost 200 children was stabbed to death in North Yorkshire, England, on Sunday.

Richard Huckle, 33, from Ashford, Kent, was given 22 life sentences in 2016 after he admitted to sexually abusing 71 kids whose ages ranged from six months to 12 years between 2006 and 2014, according to the BBC.

The report said Huckle was attacked with a makeshift knife while inside his cell at the Full Sutton Prison.

At the pedophile’s trial in 2016, investigators said they found over 20,000 indecent photos and videos of his assaults, which were shared with other pedophiles via a site on the dark web called The Love Zone.

Reports said that prior to his arrest, Huckle posed as an English teacher and Christian volunteer worker in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he groomed impoverished children.

In one of his online posts, Huckle reportedly wrote “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”

Reports said he attempted to make money from his crimes by crowdfunding the release of the photos.

“Huckle also created a 60-page ‘how-to’ guide for other pedophiles seeking to evade being caught, and kept a scorecard and points system regarding the children who were abused — leading investigators to speculate he may have as many as 200 victims,” a Fox News report stated.

At his sentencing in 2016, Judge Peter Rook condemned Huckle for his heinous crimes he said had become routine for the pedophile.

Rook commented:

Your offending behavior became entrenched in your everyday life. Your life revolved around your sexual activities with young children. Your distorted beliefs in respect of children are deep-seated. Your self-delusion knows no bounds. It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.

Reports said prior to his death, Huckle refused to cooperate with authorities when they tried to unlock a cache of encrypted files he had access to that may contain the names of victims and other pedophiles, according to Fox News.
