Felons disguised as lawmakers hold America hostage

Felons disguised as lawmakers hold America hostage

In an unprecedented attempt to blatantly usurp Constitutional authority from the federal government, lawmakers in California on September 16th passed Senate Bill 54, with a 27-11 vote along party lines, which limits state and local law enforcement communication with federal immigration authorities and prevents officers from questioning and holding people on immigration violations. This bill was signed into law by California’s Governor Jerry Brown on October 5th.


Regardless of the staunch opposition from Republican sheriffs or threats from the Trump administration that this action has faced, California lawmakers have chosen to directly violate federal law and impose their views upon the Nation.


Under Title 8, U.S. Code § 1324 a person (including a group of persons, business, organization or government) commits a federal felony when he harbors, encourages, or aids in the commission of either offense. The criminal nature of the action holds true whether the person did so knowingly or simply by the reckless disregard of the fact.

“Harboring – Title 8, U.S.C. § 1324 Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii) makes it an offense for any person who -- knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation.”

“Encouraging/Inducing -- Title 8, U.S.C. § Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv) makes it an offense for any person who -- encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law.”

“Conspiracy/Aiding or Abetting -- Title 8, U.S.C. § Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(v) expressly makes it an offense to engage in a conspiracy to commit or aid or abet the commission of the foregoing offenses.”

Penalties include criminal fines, imprisonment, and forfeiture of vehicles and real property used to commit the crime. Provisions in the law allow for harsher penalties when such action result in serious injury or death.

“With regard to violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(ii)-(iv) and (v)(ii), domestic transportation, harboring, encouraging/inducing, or aiding/abetting, the basic statutory maximum term of imprisonment is 5 years, unless the offense was committed for commercial advantage or private financial gain, in which case the maximum term of imprisonment is 10 years. In addition, significant enhanced penalties are provided for in violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1) involving serious bodily injury or placing life in jeopardy. Moreover, if the violation results in the death of any person, the defendant may be punished by death or by imprisonment for any term of years.”

Charging an ordinary citizen with violating a federal law is a fairly simple process. A local prosecutor simply refers the case to a federal prosecutor who, after review, presents a criminal complaint to a Federal Magistrate Judge who determines if there is probable cause. Unlike a civil case, the person referring the case to the federal court must be acting under the authority of the U.S. Attorney General.


But what happens when politicians or ranking officials violate federal laws? In the case of Hilary Clinton, the director of the FBI simply drafts a memo in advance stating his investigation showed no evidence. In the case of political adversaries, politicians demand the appointment of special prosecutors charging them with the mission of finding violations regardless of evidence.


The question then becomes, how does the average citizen force accountability upon these legislators and ranking officials?


Average citizens do not have the means nor ready access to vast media conglomerates like those they are trying to hold accountable. Average citizens don’t have vast networks of people nor do they have large scale platforms to express their views.


Average citizens can vote, yet those they believe need to be held accountable control the time, structure, and methods of elections. So how can they initiate change?
In the case of runaway politicians from other states trying to impose their views, like those in California and similar states, the old adage “give me a lever and a place to stand and I will move the world” comes to mind.


To institute change and force accountability, average citizens must leverage the system which they do have access and encourage that system to act. For most, this system is that of local and state government.


States, like the Federal government and most other governmental bodies, cannot be sued by individuals; however, suits can be brought against a State by another State. Moreover, Under Article III, Section 2 of the United States Constitution, the Supreme Court of the United States has original jurisdiction over cases between states…. thus, by-passing the fickle U.S. circuit courts which have confused, delayed, and often attempted to legislate from the bench.


True change will only begin by average citizens uniting together and urging their state government to fight back against other states’ intrusion upon federal law and against other states attempting to impose their will upon the entire nation.


Average citizens are being harmed (i.e. increased threat of terror, increased spending, economic instability, etc.), by the actions of the California State lawmakers. Average citizens are being harmed by the multiple frivolous lawsuits being filed by California’s and other state’s Attorney Generals aimed at disrupting the Constitutional powers of the Federal government and forcing their political view upon all states in this Nation.


State Attorney Generals from all the “fly-over” states should be filing suit against California State and other like-minded states causing this harm to their residents. They should be seeking recovery of tax payer dollars their states have been forced to spend protecting its citizens from the actions being taken by these other states. The additional law enforcement dollars Texas, Missouri, and other “flyover” states are having to spend because California, Washington, New York wants open borders. The additional cost to life caused by these same states passing laws to harbor, encourage, and aid illegal immigrants who repeatedly sneak across our border committing heinous acts against U.S. citizens.


With so many states facing budget issues, State Attorney Generals should be jumping at the opportunity to recover the hard-earned tax dollars its citizens are being intimidated into spending to provide social welfare programs for the troves of illegal immigrants being encouraged to unlawfully enter and remain in this great Nation because of actions such as the California lawmakers have taken.


How does the average citizen force accountability? They call their State legislators, Governors, Attorney Generals and demand the State use its vast power to protect them from the unwanted and illegal intrusions being thrust upon them by these leftist states. Demand they sue to protect them and recover hard-earned dollars in the U.S. Supreme Court and maybe, just maybe, when these offending states are forced to face the reality that their actions have real repercussions; they will stop the political game play and stop trying to force their will upon the Nation.

ALERT ALERT

“Stop Mass Hysteria”  Michael Savage On Current Media Frenzy: It’s Like A Virus, An Epidemic… It Will Die Of Its Own Oxygen Deprivation 

The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft interviewed Dr. Michael Savage on his latest book “Stop Mass Hysteria” this weekend.

“Stop Mass Hysteria” COULD NOT come at a better time. And our discussion with Dr. Savage on this subject was timely to say the least.

Dr. Savage discussed the history of mass hysteria in America from the Salem witch trials to the Trump-Russial collusion witch hunt.

Michael Savage also shared his thoughts on the mass hysteria surrounding the Brett Kavananaugh confirmation hearings.

Dr. Michael Savage: Let me just say starting from the beginning that there is a huge difference between mass hysteria and justified concern. And this is something we have to understand. There are imagined threats and then there is real danger as we all know. And this is an imagined threat – That Kavanaugh poses a threat to all women on the planet that he’s a mad rapist. That he will be on the Supreme Court running around and making the climate of rape more acceptable. This is the greatest example of mass hysteria since the Trump derangement syndrome. And it is a continuation of course, of the hatred of Trump and their hatred for those of us who supported Donald Trump, and Donald Trump’s agenda more than Donald Trump. It’s really not about Donald Trump it’s about the agenda which is largely based on modern nationalism that I offered for many, many years.

Dr. Savage is truly brilliant. He publishes a book on mass hyteria and the the Kavanaugh confirmation comes along.

Dr. Savage goes on to say the number one greatest threat facing America today is radical Islam. “For the last 1,400 years radical Islam has been at war with the world. This is not Islamophobia as the mainstream media would have you believe. It is history.”

Michael Savage took some time to bash CNN in his chapter titled “From Salem to CNN” where he compares the two asking, “They’re not too different are they?”

Michael went on to describe the real “war on women” is the radical feminists who are actually debasing feminists and debasing women across America with false accusations, or exaggerated accusations.

Dr. Savage talked about the danger of mass hysteria, “It’s like a virus. As a trained epidemiologist it’s really like an epidemic. It’s almost a medical situation, this madness is very similar to an epidemic that continues to spread though a population without discriminating who it attacks. That’s the point. And so in stopping mass hysteria I try to bring real history to the discussion rather than straight polemics.”

Near the end of the interview I asked Michael about what will eventually the end of mass hysteria. Michael offered this, “We have to believe at the end reason will trump hysteria. We have to believe. I believe this mania we are living through will die of its own oxygen deprivation.”

Let’s hope Dr. Savage is right. He usually is. God help us.
