Mark,

I'm surprised they still allow you to comment here, especially since this is a forum for adults. I suggest you go back to your Disney Channel re-runs and let the grown-ups work on the serious stuff. See ya ... Dumbo!

David Swanson, grow up.

Hey George,

What is your problem? I could ask you the same thing. I don't know what you are talking about. There is no story...just a video. 

If you don't like a good story about men who served their country then too bad about you. My post did not interfere with your being able to watch the video in anyway, shape or form.

I posted that for those who would appreciate it. You don't, that is obvious.

THE LOW LIFE "PROGRESSIONAL LEFT WING COMMUNIST BAST-RDS WILL NEVER TAKE OUR CONSTITUTION AWAY FROM WE THE PEOPLE!

George...

You are spot-on about Mark Smithey. I pray that the hall monitor for teapartyorg.ning.com snatches his hall-pass and burns it..... while it's still in his pants pocket.

BACK TO REALITY... Senator Cruz is one of the only two members of Congress that I trust. It really is a shame that he cannot legally run for president. He could do a hell of a good job for the Country we all dearly love if he were Prez. (Yes I'm serious about only trusting two people in Congress. In fact, I trust very few in our Federal Government. I trust only two Supreme Court Justices. I trust a BIG FAT ZERO in the Executive Branch. And to round it all out... I do NOT trust any Cabinet Appointees. If they were hand-picked by obama... they CANNOT be trusted.)

I find it very disheartening that I seem to know more about the Constitution than Megan and Cruz.  The Senate cannot Amend the Constitution without 3/4 of the States ratifying the proposed Amendment. Article V specifically states that the Congress with a 2/3 vote can recommend Amendments but it takes 3/4 of the State Legislatures to ratify it.

Mark Smithey.  Are you an OBOT?  You are changing the subject.  I hope Melony is on to you.

I like to hear Cruz talk!

I received this from a friend earlier and wanted to share this story, I had to post in several parts because there was a maximum of 4,000 words per post. I tried to keep everything together. Enjoy:

WHY DID MR. ROGERS WEAR A SWEATER?

Captain Kangaroo passed away on January 23, 2004 at age 76, which is odd, because he always looked to be 76. (DOB: 6/27/27)

His death reminded me of the following story.

Some people have been a bit offended that the actor, Lee Marvin, is buried in a grave alongside 3 and 4-star generals at Arlington National Cemetery.  His marker gives his name, rank (PVT) and service (USMC). Nothing else.

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.

You don't get to interrupt me
