THROW THE BUMS IN JAIL

{ barbwire.com } ~ Throw the Bums in Jail

This is not going to be long. I am gonna say what I have to say even though it may not be popular. Isn’t it about time somebody did something?

The idea of a “high Crime” which is referred to in our Constitution has nothing to do with the severity of the crime that is committed, but rather the position of the one who is committing it.

A “high” crime refers to position not to proportionality. A lie told by the CEO of a company is far more egregious than a falsehood uttered by the company custodian. The “higher” the position in the organization that a perpetrator occupies the greater the damage done by his/her dishonesty.

“High crimes” refer to those crimes committed by people in authority and especially those who are charged with securing the public trust. It is one thing if a teenager in a church congregation commits the act of fornication. It is entirely more severe if the Pastor engages in the same activity.

Although we love to say that all sins are equal the fact remains that not all sins have the same consequences attached to them. Lady Justice may be blindfolded but she is not blind. If there are multiple systems of justice then there is no justice. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

I don’t care what your political persuasion is. It matters not if you root for the Donkeys or the Elephants. Every sports fan in America hates the idea of unfair referees. There is no joy in a victory that was a result of ill-gotten gain or home town umpires. If putting one’s thumb on the scale is reprehensible in a football game how much more scandalous is it in the governance of a people?

If our leaders are no more virtuous than the people they lead then they have no business leading.

Washington has become a crime scene. There is something seriously wrong when the government of a nation is referred to as a “Swamp” as if it was referring to some backwashed delta in Louisiana. The seat of government of the most powerful nation in the world is full of rattlesnakes and alligators. Some are left handed and some swing from the right but both wings are connected to the same bird. They are one big family and you and I aren’t in it.

Most crime syndicates operate like families.

A fatal blow was delivered to America on November 22, 1963 and this nation has been gasping for breath ever since. The murder of President Kennedy was the first public act of the Deep State. Over the last 50 years the American people have been fed one lie after another by those who were sworn to bring us justice.

The list of lies lines up like something right out of the movie The Godfather. Kennedy, King, Oklahoma City, Waco, Ruby Ridge, TWA Flight 800, The Twin Towers, Boston Bombing, Benghazi, Judge Scalia, LaVoy Finicum, Las Vegas, The Birth Certificate…do you really believe that we have been given the Truth? Do you really believe that those behind the scenes who are really complicit have been held accountable?

I don’t care if it is George Bush or Dick Cheney, Pappy Bush or Barbara Bush, Bill, Hillary or Princess Chelsea, Barry Soetoro, John McCain, Uma Weiner or The Pope. I am not interested in some underling being the scapegoat. It is time for some important perps to pay the piper.

Americans need to see some justice. It might be ugly, it might be painful, it might be hard to watch, but if we are a nation of laws then the laws must apply to everyone.

Every night as I lay my head on my pillow I thank God that Hillary Clinton and her crime syndicate was defeated. If she had won, all of this corruption would have been bulldozed into the deep recesses of the swamp.

We have traitors walking among us. The thought of that was so repugnant that our Founders prescribed the death penalty as the punishment for those who engaged in that behavior. If the rich and powerful walk on this one then there is no hope for America.

There is no such thing as Republican treason or Democrat treason. Treason is serious business and for the sake of those aspiring leaders who are watching they must understand that such “high crimes” will never be tolerated.

Clint Eastwood would say “Hang ‘em High!” I say throw their butts in jail.

Lady Justice needs to open her eyes. The future of our Republic depends on it.

ALERT ALERT

Schumer Refusing To Help Border Kids
Wants To Hurt Trump Instead

The controversy over how underage illegal aliens are handled at the border is heating up — but Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer just rejected a good-faith proposal to fix the problem.

A growing number of people on both sides of the political aisle have expressed concern for border separations, which occur when migrants are caught breaking the law along the border while they have children with them, or when the often exploitative relationship between adults and minors at the border cannot be established.

A vast amount of mis-information and outright lying about the situation has muddied the water, making it tough to understand the situation in its entirety.

Both liberals and conservatives, however, have voiced their support for a better system that results in fewer family separations, and even President Donald Trump has indicated that he is willing to stand with Congress if they change the law.

Shockingly, however, it looks like one of the most well-known faces of the Democratic party isn’t willing to take action, and is instead playing politics in order to attack Trump.

On Tuesday, Schumer openly rejected a Republican proposal to fix the immigrant separation problem at the legislative level, and instead whined about the president.

“There are so many obstacles to legislation and when the president can do it with his own pen, it makes no sense,” Schumer stated, according to The Hill.

“Legislation is not the way to go here when it’s so easy for the president to sign it,” he complained.

Democrats Reject Bill To Keep Families Together At Border – Schumer Says He “Wants To Keep Focus On Trump”

Think about that for a second: The president’s job is to execute existing laws. The legislature’s job is to change or enact new laws when needed.

A senator elected to the legislature for exactly that purpose is now refusing to do his job and pass legislation, while simultaneously blaming the president for enforcing the existing laws, as he is sworn to do.

If there was any doubt that Schumer and the Democrats are playing politics instead of trying to actually help migrant families, the senator made his intentions clear: Obstruct and point fingers at Trump.

“Asked if that meant Democrats would not support a bill backed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to keep immigrant families together while seeking asylum on the U.S. border, Schumer said they want to keep the focus on Trump,” The Hill explained.

Make no mistake: The Democrats dragging their feet and refusing to back legislation already drafted by Republicans will prolong the problems at the border.

“Schumer’s opposition to a legislative fix means there likely won’t be a quick end to the emotional images of immigrant children being separated from their families unless Trump backs down,” The Hill reported.

“Democrats want to keep the pressure on Trump instead of having Congress assume responsibility for the growing crisis,” the news outlet continued.

Again: There’s a solution ready to go, with Republicans including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ready to support it. Yet Democrats like Schumer apparently believe that scoring political points against Trump is more important than helping broken families on the border, even as their own liberal voters demand action.

“Congress alone can fix it,” stated Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Monday.

“I support, and all of the senators of the Republican conference support, a plan that keeps families together,” McConnell agreed.

“We need to fix the problem and it requires a legislative solution,” he said.

Yet Democrats refuse to budge.

This “do nothing but blame Trump” response from the left should prove beyond a doubt that all the tears and hand-wringing from liberals are disingenuous. They’re for show. If it was truly about helping innocent kids at the border, Schumer and his fellow Democrats could act right now.

If their priority was actually to solve the problem and help broken families, scoring points against Trump shouldn’t even be a concern. Even if they believed he was being stubborn on the issue, they could take the high road by doing their jobs and supporting bipartisan legislation.

They don’t, because solving the problem was never their goal. They are playing political games and using devastated children as pawns, while pretending that the president is the monster.

That’s sick… and the American people need to see exactly who is doing the obstruction.

SLAVEHOLDER??

Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
