TOP DEMOCRAT: ‘UN-AMERICAN’ TO QUESTION MUSLIM LAWMAKER ON INTEL PANEL

AP

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said those who criticize the appointment of Democratic Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN) to the Intelligence Committee because he is a Muslim are “un-American.”

Schiff, who is the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said he has been “deeply disturbed” by the reaction by some to Carson’s appointment last week.

“I am deeply disturbed that since his appointment to the committee, Congressman Carson has been subject to vicious, anti-Muslim attacks online and in social media, questioning his loyalty to our country solely because of his faith.”

... questioning Rep Carson's bona fides as a loyal American might be unSoviet but certainly isn't unAmerican. I suspect Rep Schiff would have been a happy clam in Soviet Russia.

agree

Oh, he's "disturbed" alright. Obammie's house boy who has no right to be in America! Damn Hajji!

The Proof is in the Pudding, it it looks like a Muslim, talks like a Muslim................. generally, people have positioned an enemy of America, in a high position, and they now have  this man on this Committee.  You think he's in our corner????????????????

I have not see any "Hard Ball" games in a long time.   Way darn too long!!

*Edited Word, Please Re-Read the members Rules!!*

Schiff is a typical Butt-Face California Nut and has his own Butt-Face shoved up his own butt...he cain't help it, he's full of do-do.

YOU BETTER BUY A PAIR OF THOSE SECRET AGENT SUNGLASS'S THAT HAVE MIRRORS IN THE CORNERS SO U CAN SEE BEHIND YOUR BACK, IF U DON'T, I WOULD NOT  TURN MY BACK ON ANY MUSLIM,

You know he isn't in our corner. For andre Carson consistently said islam will rule ameria and our schools should be run like madrassahs(islamic schools). No he is not on our side, he is with the enemy just like Obama said he will stand with Islam.

I agree, He is not in our corner.

Rep. Adam Schiff apparently forgets that we have FREEDOM of SPEECH in America. You remember Schiff, you work for the people of America. not the Muslim Brotherhood! We are at war with Muslim extremists. They killed 3000+ of our people on September 11, 2001 in New York City alone. Until a way develops to tell the good guys from the bad guys I say consider them ALL suspect. There are some loyal American Muslim in America, but for the most part the Muslims here are doing everything they can to undermine our country. I'm just one of those "better to be safe than sorry again" people.

I feel the same way Michael Nellett. I will just keep on questioning. In this administration I don't take anything at face value.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) needs to stop playing footsy with the enemy of America.  Cut the PC crap and face the reality that we don't want or need another Muslim in any position in our government, much less such a sensitive one, PERIOD!

We did not place the Japanese or Germans or Vietnamese in sensitive positions when we were at war with them.  Muslims have not only declared war on America/Americans they have initiated such a war through their actions.  What part of that don't you understand.  If you can not see the potential conflict of interest in such a decision, you are not worthy of your office!

ALERT ALERT

OMG!! -> Government Now Wants To Seize Your Car For Going 5MPH Over The Limit

We’ve discussed this on and off for several years now. Civil asset forfeiture is a legal process that allows the government to seize assets and cash from citizens without any due process or judicial oversight.

You don’t even have to be charged with a crime. You are assumed guilty unless you can somehow prove your innocence.

Of course, not everyone has this ability… if you aren’t local, state, or federal law enforcement, this is called stealing, and you go to prison.

But the government is actually a bigger problem than common thieves.

A 2015 report showed that law enforcement used civil asset forfeiture to steal more from US residents than every thief, robber, and burglar in America combined.

About $4.5 BILLION worth of cash, cars, homes, and other property is taken by civil asset forfeiture each year – hundreds of millions more than common criminals steal.

And it happens at every level. Your local cop can use civil asset forfeiture just like your state trooper. And then any one of the armed agents of the US government—from the FBI to the Fish and Wildlife Service—can rob you for whatever reason they want.

This travesty continues to grow because the cops who take your stuff get to keep it. Police departments and government agencies around the country depend on civil asset forfeiture to boost their budgets.

Cops will literally keep some of the cars they take as squad cars. And they make a fortune auctioning off the houses, boats, and anything else they confiscate.

Obviously this gives cops an incentive to steal, whether or not they actually think the property was used in a crime, or acquired illegally. Remember, civil asset forfeiture adds billions every year to their bottom line.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case of civil asset forfeiture.

Tyson Timbs was convicted of selling a small amount of drugs to an undercover police officer. He was sentenced to house arrest, and paid about $1,200 in fines.

But then police used civil asset forfeiture to take his $42,000 Land Rover which Timbs purchased with money from a life insurance policy after his father died. The money did not come from selling drugs, or any other illegal activity.

Timbs sued, and the case made its way to the Supreme Court, because every lower court in Indiana said the forfeiture was perfectly legit.

The case revolves around whether or not the seizure of the Land Rover was an excessive fine under the 8th amendment, and whether or not this protection against excessive fines applies to state governments.

And the public got some crazy insight into the government’s position.

The Indiana Solicitor General was arguing in favor of civil asset forfeiture when Justice Stephen Breyer asked him a hypothetical.

Breyer asked, if a state needs revenue, could it force someone to forfeit their Bugatti, Mercedes, or Ferrari for speeding? Even if they were going just 5 miles per hour over the speed limit?

And the utterly appalling answer from the Indiana Solicitor General was, yes.

That’s right… the official government position is that they can steal any amount of your property in “connection” with any crime whatsoever, no matter how trivial the crime may be… even exceeding the speed limit by 5 miles per hour.

This is how overbearing and authoritarian the government has become in the land of the free.

This is how much power your local cop has… and the power only grows as you go to state, and federal officials.

If there is any solace in any of this, it is that the other Supreme Court Justices were reportedly laughing at this exchange.

The justices seemed incredulous that Indiana’s top lawyer was using such absurd assertions and flimsy reasoning in his arguments.

So, for now, we can keep our cars if we get pulled over for speeding. But that may not always be the case…

Depending on how this is ruled, it could pave the way for even more egregious abuses of power… or it could curb the practice, and reign in these thieves in uniforms.

Just understand where the government is coming from. These politicians, bureaucrats and officers think they can do whatever they want. Absolutely anything goes, with no limitation whatsoever.

And that makes it a little tough to feel like you really live in the land of the free.
