The Constitution

Supreme Court Nominees Lied, And Susan Collins And Lisa Murkowski Were Tricked!

Two Women Republican Senators, considered the most “moderate” Republicans in the US Senate, have made it clear that they are supportive of abortion rights–Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

Both interviewed Donald Trump’s three Supreme Court nominees–Neil Gorsuch in 2017, Brett Kavanaugh in 2018, and Amy Coney Barrett in 2020–and all three nominees pledged that they would not touch Roe V Wade.

But now, based on the draft of the likely decision of the Supreme Court in late June, all three are supportive of Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, to wipe out fifty years of abortion reaffirmation, and take away a basic right already granted, a totally reprehensible action!

So it comes down to this–all three Trump nominees LIED to Collins and Murkowski, and have undermined faith in the veracity and reputation of the Supreme Court!

By all rights, all three should be impeached and removed, but of course, that will not happen, but the image and historic role of the Supreme Court has been sullied for all time!

And Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski SHOULD support a carve out on the filibuster to allow 51 votes, including theirs, to pass legislation to insure the continuation of abortion rights, and therefore, tell the Supreme Court to go to hell, as a disgrace to the law and the Constitution!

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!

A Glorious Day For Democracy, The Rule Of Law, And The Supreme Court Saying “NO” To A President!

Friday, December 11, 2020, will go down in history as a glorious day for Democracy, the Rule of Law, and reaffirming the Supreme Court for, once again, having had the courage to say “NO!” to a President who thought he was unaccountable!

In 1974, in US V Richard Nixon, the Supreme Court ordered that the Watergate Tapes be handed over to the Special Prosecutior, by a 8-0 decision, leading to the resignation of the President. Three of the votes against Nixon came from Justices he had appointed.

In 1997, in Clinton V Jones, the Supreme Court ordered that the President testify in a civil trial dealing with sexual harassment, leading to his impeachment for lying before a grand jury. The vote was unanimous, with even the two Clinton appointees in the majority!

And now in 2020, the Supreme Court unanimously, with even the three Justices appointed by Donald Trump, throwing out the frivolous case backed by 17 state Attorneys General and 126 House Republicans (two thirds of the party in that chamber), that wished to throw out the votes of the four swing states that went to Joe Biden, insuring him of victory in the Presidential Election of 2020!

The Supreme Court has its critics, and has some members whose ethics and morals are suspect, but the Supreme Court proved its mettle in a crisis moment, and once again limited Presidential power. It prevented a dictatorship from being established by the most corrupt President in American history who, even with a potential pardon by himself (which would be illegal) or by Mike Pence, will pay the price for his violations of the law in New York State, and face likely conviction and a prison sentence!

Congressman Duncan Hunter, Jr. And The Constitution

Freshman Congressman Duncan Hunter, Jr. of California, the son of his namesake who was a long term Congressman and a Presidential candidate in the Republican campaign of 2008, has outraged many with his proposal that children born of illegal immigrants be deported with their parents!

Hunter, who is the only combat veteran of both the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars to be serving in the Congress, had a great advantage being elected to Congress, being the son of a famous father, and running to replace him in his seat. He is to be respected for his military commitment to his country, but on this specific issue, he is totally wrong!

The Constitution makes it clear that if someone is born within the territorial limits of the United States, he or she is a citizen of the United States, and cannot be deported!

Therefore, this kind of suggestion is counter productive, and only incites Tea Party Movement people and racial supremacists who are using the Arizona law to promote their anti Latino and Hispanic motivations!

Hunter should use his time in Congress, instead of dividing people and promoting hysteria and panic, to help arrive at a conclusion that is contributory toward a solution of the illegal immigration problem!
