Section 3 Of The 14th Amendment

Attempt To Take Marjorie Taylor Greene And Madison Cawthorn Off The Ballot For Reelection In Motion

Two of the “loonies” in the House of Representatives—Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, and Congressman Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina—are facing challenges to their attempt to remain on ballots for reelection, as both have been accused of inspiring and promoting the January 6, 2021 Insurrection at the US Capitol.

Both Greene and Cawthorn have been reckless in speech, demonstrating extremism in the public square in their commitment to promote division and hatred in a manner that is beyond the pale!

Both, along with others involved in inciting and promoting January 6, are seen as violating the 14th Amendment, Section 3, which denies the right of any member of Congress who engaged in insurrection or rebellion from serving in the government of the United States.

Basically, anyone in government who participated in sedition or treason should face prosecution and incaceration, beyond being denied the right to serve in government!

Kevin McCarthy: A Traitor To Truth And Country, And Lackey To Donald Trump, Needs To Be Prosecuted!

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is a traitor to the truth and country, and a lackey to Donald Trump, and needs to be prosecuted!

McCarthy desperately wants to become Speaker of the House, more important than the truth about Donald Trump that he uttered on January 13, 2021, one week after the January 6, 2021 Insurrection.

McCarthy screamed and cursed at Trump on the day of the US Capitol Insurrection, and held Trump accountable for the events, and said Antifa had absolutely no involvement in the events, which even now a year later, the Republican insurrectionists in Congress keep on claiming, and right wing news channels continue to pontificate, led by Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and other right wing propagandists.

But they, themselves, were trying to reach Trump through Mark Meadows to tell him to call off the violence and bloodshed, and are also liars!

McCarthy gave up his promotion of the truth on January 28, 2021, when he went to Mar a Lago to meet with Trump, and now refuses to testify before the January 6 House Committee investigating the events of January 6, and this after in May 2021, saying he would testify if called to explain the events of the day, which he well knows what happened, but now lies about it.

McCarthy should be expelled from Congress, under the 14th Amendment, Section 3, and prosecuted for the damage he has done by lying for Donald Trump, after first doing the right thing by denouncing him!

His name in history will be one of a traitor and seditionist, who cares more about his own advancement, than preserving American democracy, the Constitution, and the rule of law!

The Donald Trump Mafia And “Religious” Type Cult Controls The Remnants Of The Republican Party!

It is time to recognize that Donald Trump is like a Mafia Chieftan, a gang leader, a cult leader, with many so called “religious” people, both right wing evangelical Christians and Orthodox Jews, following his lead, and believing he is the savior of their America!

The Presidential Election of 2020 was the only time when America did not experience a peaceful transfer of power, as even after Lincoln was elected in 1860, his inauguration went forward without direct threat, although there was a “Baltimore Plot” that was prevented from success and open bloodshed!

Their America is one of racism, sexism, nativism, misogyny, Islamophobia, and even antisemitism, as well as worshipper of guns, and homophobic!

Donald Trump is clearly still a threat to national security and to American democracy, and it is essential to ban him from being able to run again for President, utilizing Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, as this author and blogger wrote about on this blog a few days ago.

But also, the conspirators of January 6, 2021 must be prevented from holding public office, as they are the true scum which has no regard for human life and safety!

Even when one of the worst conspirators of all, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, has a relapse and admits the terrorist attack, along comes the evil Tucker Carlson of Fox News Channel, who intimidates him back into obedience to the cult!

The Republican Party is a very sick party, and a threat to the future of American democracy, and must be overcome on all levels, a battle for the ages to redeem what Abraham Lincoln spoke for during the Civil War!

Enforcing 14th Amendment, Section 3, Will Eliminate Threat Of Donald Trump Being President Again!

A simple solution to the threat of Donald Trump running for President again is to enforce the 14th Amendment, Section 3, as passed and added to the Constitution after the Civil War and during the Reconstruction Era.

Congressman Steve Cohen of Tennessee, the Chairman of the Judiciary Subcomittee on the Consitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties has proposed a measure to enforce this section of the 14th Amendment, and Senator Amy Klobucar, Chair of the Rules Committee, has done so in the Senate.

Section 3 of the 14th Amendment reads as follows:

No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House remove such disability.

The US Attorney General could move to enforce this section of the Constitution before a three judge panel. Such individual would be disqualified from holding public office, once clear and convincing evidence that an office holder or former office holder engaged in insurrection or rebellion. Such individuals would also forfeit all benefits derived from their service in federal office, and would be prohibited from obtaining contracts with the federal government. And a former President would not be considered such for the purpose of receiving benefits under the Act.

Additionally, members of Congress who were involved in inciting and promoting what happened on January 6, 2021, would face the same penalties and lose their rights to serve or gain benefits from their past service!
