Chuck Schumer Calls for Violating the Constitution!-Posted on Godfather Politics-By Common Constitutionalist-On February 17, 2014:

The New York Times reported late last week that New York Sen. Chuck-U-Schumer is suggesting a “legislative maneuver known as a discharge petition, that would allow supporters of overhauling the nation’s immigration laws to circumvent the Republican majority in the House by bringing the measure directly to the house floor, bypassing the regular committee process.” Let's call this "maneuver" what it is -- a violation of the Constitution.

The Times continued, “Lawmakers and aides in both parties say that a discharge position, especially one coming from Mr. Schumer, whose views are strongly opposed by many House conservatives, is unlikely to succeed. Even if all House Democrats supported the measure, it would still require more than a dozen Republican signatures.”

Now I’m not certain that the House could do the same to the Senate – issue a discharge position – but I could guarantee Chuck Schumer would be one of the first to the microphone, crying like a stuck pig, saying how dare the House try to meddle in the affairs of the Senate or usurp the leadership’s authority, or some such nonsense.

“This scheme has zero chance of success,” the Times reported. “A clear majority in the House understands that the massive Senate-passed bill is deeply flawed,” said Michael Steel, a spokesman for Speaker John Boehner. “That’s why we will continue to work on a step-by-step, common sense reform.”

Quick tip: when a known dirt bag politician, or anyone affiliated with said dirt bag, mentions a “common sense” solution to anything – hide your wallet and put on your iron chastity belt.

The Times continued, “The Senate bill included a path for citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants already in the country, and House Republicans have largely dismissed it as amnesty. They preferred to take on the issue in a piecemeal approach through a series of narrower bills.”

Undocumented immigrant is so passé. I recently heard a new, even more ridiculous term for people who are in the United States illegally. On NPR, a Democrat strategist told the cheerleader interviewer that politicians should now be using the term “Aspiring Citizen” or “Aspiring American,” although it would more accurately be described as “Aspiring Democrat” or “Aspiring Full Entitlement Recipient.”

“Discharge Positions are difficult, but when they work, it’s because a clear majority of the body that supports a specific proposal, and in this case, that is true,” Chuck-U-Schumer said.

Holder Doubles Down On Radical Leftist Rhetoric!-Posted on Western Journalism-By B. CHRISTOPHER AGEE-On February 17, 2014:

Despite facing mounting criticism from his conservative opponents, Attorney General Eric Holder shows no signs of curtailing his bitterly partisan agenda.

Most recently, he advocated for the reissuance of voting privileges to individuals – specifically minorities – who have previously been convicted of felonies. He is currently suing two U.S. states for taking appropriate measures in the fight against voter fraud, furthering public perception that he is anything but an impartial arbiter of the law.

While a recent New Yorker article seemed to hint at Holder’s intention to resign from his post in coming months, the Department of Justice shot down those rumors.

According to spokesperson Brian Fallon, Holder merely said that “he still has a lot he wants to accomplish on issues like criminal justice reform, voting rights, and LGBT equality.” His opinions on such issues are major factors in the conservative call to forcibly remove him from the position of attorney general.

Do you think Holder should be impeached? Sound off by taking our im...

For many critics, Holder’s insistence on giving convicted felons a vote was a breaking point in his already questionable tenure as the nation’s top law enforcement official. Hans von Spakovsky, for instance, is an active opponent of Holder’s platform. As a former official in the Justice Department, his opinion on this situation carries particular influence.

“All he talks about is the restoration of voting rights for felons,” he said. “What he fails to mention is the fact that you don’t just lose your right to vote. In most states, you lose your rights to own a gun, to sit on a jury, to engage in certain kinds of employment like being a police officer.”

Since Holder was not similarly preoccupied with restoring those rights, von Spakovsky continued, the implicit message is that “he is only interested in the potential votes.”

Nevertheless, he and other vocal critics are not overly optimistic that Holder will be stripped of his position any time soon.

“I doubt that the president would want him to leave,” he concluded, “because he has in many ways acted as a heat shield for the administration. I can’t imagine what kind of grilling a new nominee would have to take to come in.”

ALERT ALERT

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.
