The Republican Party's Three Ring "Oversight" Circus

It must be nice to be a congressman these days.  These slackers no longer legislate or pass budgets or hold anyone accountable for their actions.  They’ve created a nice little niche which they call “oversight.”  I may not be a constitutional scholar, but I’m quite sure “overseer” of federal bureaucracies is nowhere to be found.

Republicans have a regular three ring circus going on at Capitol Hill.  We see all sorts of escapades and stunts played on C-Span.  There were plenty of oohs and ahhhs during the Obama administration as one scoundrel after another danced before committee hearing after committee hearing while the carnival barkers beat their chest and declared their indignations.  To what avail?  

We all know these politicians are complacent, gutless wonders; but what is really disturbing is how Republican “leadership” was willing to bail on our nominee and embrace a Hillary Clinton presidency.  Here is an excerpt from BizPac Review:

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan advised Republicans to run away from candidate Donald Trump before the election in order to save themselves and hold a future-President Hillary Clinton accountable, Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas revealed in an exclusive video interview with The Daily Caller New Foundation.
 “Are you crazy? We haven’t held anyone accountable. You haven’t even let us hold the IRS commissioner accountable [for using government power to harm President Obama’s political adversaries],” an astonished Gohmert said to the speaker on a call.

Rep. Louie Gohmert is one of the few honest men in that hellhole town.


President Trump has a Duty to Pardon Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s conviction of criminal contempt for defying an activist judge’s order to not enforce our immigration laws is theater of the absurd.  Susan Bolton, a Clinton appointee, believes she can write, produce and direct policies with the a simple wave of a gavel.  Congress has no role in her one woman production.  Statutory law and precedent is thrown on the cutting floor.  The American people are ushered out the studio doors because this diva is obsessed with brown M & M’s.

President Donald Trump has a duty to pardon Sheriff Joe Arpaio and reinstate the rule of law.  And for those who believe the federal government is solely responsible for enforcing our immigration laws, here is an excerpt from the Washington Times:

Judge Bolton ruled, “It is not in the public interest for Arizona to enforce preempted laws,” but this is a deceptive statement. If Arizona had passed a law that defined U.S. citizenship, as Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. has disingenuously suggested, federal supremacy would apply. However, the case at hand doesn’t deal with pre-emptive law but with parallel enforcement. Arizona’s law does not define who has broken immigration laws; it deals with what to do when police apprehend these criminals.

The relevant precedent is in Gonzales v. City of Peoria (1983), in which the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit - which includes Arizona - held that “although the regulation of immigration is unquestionably an exclusive federal power, it is clear that this power does not preempt every state activity affecting aliens.” The court stated flatly that “federal law does not preclude local enforcement of the criminal provisions” of federal immigration law, and that “concurrent enforcement is authorized” when they “do not impair federal regulatory interests.”

In the same case, the court noted that federal injunctions against state law enforcement actions should be undertaken only in the most extreme circumstances and should generally exercise restraint “based on principles of equity, comity and federalism” and “consistent with these principles, federal courts may not intervene in state enforcement activities absent extraordinary circumstances that threaten immediate and irreparable injury.” The notion that the federal government would be immediately and irreparably harmed by Arizona identifying previously detained illegals is unsustainable

Allowing activist judges to criminalize politics is also unsustainable and it’s about time Congress did something about it.

North Carolina Democrats Still Whining About "Gerrymandered" Districts

Elections have consequences and one of those consequences is the configuration of electoral maps.  This is a political process which the courts have no business interfering with.  If Democrats want more of a say into drawing districts maybe they should have a platform that is more palatable for their constituents.

North Carolina Democrats should be more concerned as to why they are losing elections instead of worrying about “gerrymandered” districts.  They lost back in 2010 because of corrupt politicians and woeful mismanagement of this great state.  We were a financial basket case and needed a change.  That’s why they lost.

But Democrats are incapable of introspection; instead, they plot and deceive and use the courts to gain political power.  They can’t win at the ballot box so let’s use unaccountable liberal judges to force their agenda down North Carolinians throats.  If they think that is an endearing quality, well it’s not.  That kind of action reminds me of the neighborhood kid who runs  home to mommy if he didn’t get his way.  Nobody liked that kid.

When it is all said and done there isn’t much Republicans can do.  Here is an excerpt from the News and Observer:

Reps. Carl Ford and Larry Pittman, Republicans who represent Cabarrus County, are also in a district together. Ford, reached by phone Saturday, said he was aware of the situation and said he looks forward to more redistricting discussions this week.

Given that districts must be roughly equal in size and must respect county boundaries as much as possible, “there’s only so many things they could do,” Ford said.

But that won’t stop Democrats from bitching and moaning.  They would rather have the issue of “unfairness.”  These people are so morally and financially bankrupt, they dare not present their true agenda.

The Wonderful Wit of W.C. Fields

This is some funny stuff.  Libtards would consider some of these skits child abuse.

Ex-Sen. Russ Feingold is a Bitter, Lawless Man

Russ Feingold, an ex-senator from Wisconsin, is a bitter man. He lost an election that should be embarrassing to anyone with his kind of name recognition. Have you noticed any time a democrat loses an election, they always blame the voters.  Why would the country shun the “party of the people”?  They must be white supremacists.  Yeah, that has to be it.

Americans are not a racist people despite what the Russ Feingolds say about us.  We don’t divide people into subsets with labels like Democrats do.  We respect the rule of law, equality under the law and the value of citizenship.  Democrats have demonstrated time after time that they do not.  Here is an excerpt from Russ Feingold’s op-ed in the Guardian:

The lesson from Charlottesville is not how dangerous the neo-Nazis are. It is the unmasking of the Republican party leadership. In the wake of last weekend’s horror and tragedy, let us finally, finally rip off the veneer that Trump’s affinity for white supremacy is distinct from the Republican agenda of voter suppression, renewed mass incarceration and the expulsion of immigrants.

There is a direct link between Trump’s comments this week and those policies, so where is the outrage about the latter? Where are the Republican leaders denouncing voter suppression as racist, un-American and dangerous? Where are the Republican leaders who are willing to call out the wink (and the direct endorsement) from President Trump to the white supremacists and acknowledge their own party’s record and stance on issues important to people of color as the real problem for our country?

Since when is verifying the legitimacy of a voter un-American?  This should be common sense.  We have a serious problem with the integrity of our voter rolls.  National Review published an article that is quite disturbing.  Here is an excerpt:

The Election Integrity Project of Judicial Watch — a Washington-based legal-watchdog group — analyzed data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2011–2015 American Community Survey and last month’s statistics from the federal Election Assistance Commission. The latter included figures provided by 38 states. According to Judicial Watch, eleven states gave the EAC insufficient or questionable information. Pennsylvania’s legitimate numbers place it just below the over-registration threshold.

My tabulation of Judicial Watch’s state-by-state results yielded 462 counties where the registration rate exceeded 100 percent. There were 3,551,760 more people registered to vote than adult U.S. citizens who inhabit these counties.

“That’s enough over-registered voters to populate a ghost-state about the size of Connecticut,” Judicial Watch attorney Robert Popper told me.

Asking a voter to provide an ID is not suppression.  What an absurd statement. Feingold’s assertion that we have mass expulsion of immigrants is grossly misleading.  Illegal aliens do not have a right to be in this country.  They are not supposed to be here. We have laws against that.

The reasons why Democrats lose elections have nothing to do with race. If anything, they’re losing elections because they are a lawless party.  


Operation Streamline: Deporting Illegals With Precision Rapidity

Illegal aliens had better beware.  The United States has a new sheriff at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and he doesn’t take kindly to invaders, unlike that traitorous piece of crap with a foreign name.  We actually have people in charge who value citizenship and the integrity of a nation-state.  President Trump’s Justice Department is deporting these lawbreakers with precision rapidity.  It’s called, Operation Streamline.

Every weekday now, a quietly chaotic but systemic routine plays out in a courtroom in a downtown federal court in Tucson.
Defense attorneys, U.S. prosecutors and marshals in dark blue suits stand in groups talking quietly. And then, seven men and women are led into the courtroom through a side door by a U.S. Border Patrol agent.
They are dressed in orange jumpsuits. The laces of their shoes have been removed, the tongues folded out so they fit like slippers.
The seven U.S. marshals walk them up to the front where they stand in front of a judge.
Each person is questioned by the judge and then sentenced. Four minutes later, seven more are brought in and the process repeats itself.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken illegal aliens out of the immigration courts and funneled them through the criminal courts where they belong.  Now there are real consequences for breaking our laws.

Most defendants are sentenced to time served, then deported.
That deportation carries some weight in this federal courtroom though and if they are caught again, they will face real prison time. Those who have already been caught at least once go to prison. Anywhere from 30 days to six months.

These people need to know the Age of Obama is over.  This invasion is coming to a halt.
