The greatest illness we face is an infectious social disease carried by the U.S. Congress (House and Senate). They have been spreading their B.S. long enough. Our government needs a complete cleansing.
If you open and scan the above link (don’t even start to read unless you have the entire day) look for the following section, it seems to apply to the topic of the day.
I. LAW GOVERNING THE PRESIDENT’S ABILITY TO CONTROL
INDIVIDUAL CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS
I had said in an earlier posts that Trump should just pardon Stone and Flynn. A reader suggested ‘why pardon? That requires an admission of guilt. Instead withdraw the case. ‘
I wondered if the President had the right to do so. Scholars apparently would argue whether he does or does not. It is my understanding he may have the right, but it would be highly controversial.
With today’s Democrats, criticizing everything Trump, can you imagine if Trump did withdraw the Stone and Flynn cases? LOL, Nancy and her ape shit House Dems would be back with an impeachment hearing next week. Its easy to do that now that there is no protocol.
Will it hasn’t taken Schiff (Pencil Neck) long to start whining because things aren’t being set up in the Senate impeachment trial the way “he and his impeachment managers” want. Schiff is currently lecturing us on what a fair trial is. Oh………..yeah, like the one he was in charge of in the House. I see!
Schiff is screaming this impeachment trial is “RIGGED”.
Adam is correct it is rigged. IT STARTED WITH HIM AND NANCY PELOSI.
Schiff is complaining the trial will go into the wee night (1 AM). He claims that Americans won’t be watching at that time……..what McConnell wants.
Guess what Adam, more people would be watching from 1 pm to 1 am than there was during the House impeachment hearings held during the business hours. It might escape you Schiff but most Americans do actually have real jobs and work, unlike yourself.
Here is the irony of all this impeachment hullabaloo. The Democrats constantly on a daily basis scream for a fair impeachment trial from the Senate. Why are they so concerned they won’t get a fair trial? Because their House Party, the House impeachment inquiry/hearing was anything but fair. The biggest screamers are the biggest players: House Speaker Pelosi, Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler.
When you are crooked, you have little trust in anyone, because you are afraid of being treated or dealt with in the same manner you have acted. A dirty heart leaks with paranoia.
Cheaters want everyone to play by the rules, except the rules don’t apply to them.

Here is a summary for those of you who care to know the REAL reason why the House of Representatives are calling for impeachment of President Trump.
Hunter Biden is former Vice-President Joe Biden’s son. He is 45 years old with a long history of drug abuse. Hunter Biden was kicked out of the military in 2014 for testing positive for cocaine. Shortly after that he was appointed to the board of directors of Burisma, Ukraine’s largest private producer of gas.
Two weeks before he was appointed, his father the Vice President of the United States encouraged Ukrainian leaders to place him on their board. Hunter Biden has ZERO experience or knowledge in the gas industry or in the Ukraine. He was paid $50,000 a month for his position on the board and a money transfer of 3 MILLION dollars was made from the Ukraine through Latvia, Cyprus, and finally to the US into accounts owned by Hunter Biden.
The top prosecutor in the Ukraine was investigating corruption and was getting ready to interview Hunter Biden regarding his dealings with Burisma and the apparent money laundering of the 3 million dollars. Before hunter Biden could be interviewed Joe Biden leaned on the Ukrainian government and threatened to withhold over 250 MILLION in US foreign aid unless the prosecutor was fired. The prosecutor was fired. The investigation into hunter Biden and Burisma ended, the Ukraine got the financial aid.
Hunter Biden was also involved in a deal with China where his father the Vice President was working on US business. This deal netted hunter Biden over 1.5 BILLION dollars! That story will bust wide open next. I mean what would cause China to hand over 1.5 BILLION dollars to a known drug addict who just happens to be the son of the Vice-President? Think that through America. It gets worse!!
The Vice-President Joe Biden took his son Hunter on Air Force Two with him to China in 2013. Ten DAYS after that trip, the Bank of China signed this deal with Hunter Biden’s company for over a 1.5 BILLION DOLLARS!! Some of this money went to a company called Henniges who makes very sensitive military equipment for the US military.
Wanna know who else was involved in the China deal as Hunter Biden’s Partners? You can’t make this stuff up people! While John Kerry was Secretary of State his stepson Chris Heinz and mob boss Whitey Bulger’s nephew Billy Bulger we’re partners in the company along with Hunter Biden. Wow right? The sons of the two most prominent decision makers in America!! How did that escape scrutiny!!
Amazing how the media isn’t even a tiny bit interested in this, and how as soon as it starts getting reported, they start impeachment proceedings against President Trump! They are hoping no one is paying attention, that the American people are too stupid, lazy, indifferent, and apathetic to pay attention. Don’t be one of those Americans. For goodness sake wake up and start actually thinking again instead of letting the media tell you what and when to be outraged about. Good grief what has happened to critical thinking?? Do most people even know they are merely pawns?
Actually the House and Senate!
Elected officials that have been left in office for 12 plus years, many 20-30 plus years lose sight of their responsibilities and duties; to serve We the People. It doesn’t take long where the infectious corruption spreads to those even with the greatest intention.
Senior elected officials in both the House and the Senate train, mentor fresh bodies (juniors) to learn the rules of how the game is played. If you don’t play along then you are moved to the bench (left out of committees) and have little voice or significance. Before long, you become part of the team……as long as you play by the rules. Even the pretenders, just to become part of the team eventually thrive for more and more POWER and acceptance from the senior squad. Remember your childhood game “Follow the Leader”. Welcome to the Congress of the United States of America. Their anthem “We aren’t here to serve, we are here because we know whats best for the people. We do not serve we CONTROL the people and we are here to STAY.” Gun control, and taking away the 2nd Amendment is a major goal…..ask any dictator.
They, the old guard, those who refuse to go home and finish their lives in their mansions need to be moved out like cattle. We the People must guide them out the doors of Congress, prod them on home…….back to their roots, back to where they came. Keep them fenced in there. They’re like bad beef, too old, too fat……we don’t need to slaughter them, though that is what they’d do to us; just keep THEM under CONTROL.
Yeah, some day a post like this may even get censored, if We the People don’t get a better grip. Check out the following link.
Rebellious Democrats disrupted the House’s legislative work on Wednesday, staging a sit-in on the House floor and refusing to leave until they secured a vote on gun control measures.
You won’t see Democrats and Republicans alike committed to and refusing to leave until something is done over other important issues. Little extra time normally, unless of course they are staying for a PAY INCREASE FOR THEMSELVES!
A system of checks and balances was built within the Constitution to protect us against tyranny .
The Executive, the Judicial and the Legislative branches of our United States Government is a checks and balance system, right? This C & B system really does work, when there are responsible people executing the responsibilities and duties of each branch. John Adams said, “Only by balancing each against the other two could freedom be preserved.”.
The best example of a dysfunctional government is the one we have today. The Legislative and Executive Branches are good at pointing the finger and giving the middle one to the other, but take little action. When one is in violation of the Constitution and our laws and the other branches do not respond accordingly, holding the other accountable, then both or possibly all three are in violation, thumbing their noses at the system. It is the responsibility of each Branch to check and keep the others within the law and to preserve the Constitution.
Here are just a few of many checks and balances which are threatened today: From http://www.nccs.net/checks-balances-limited-and-balanced-government.php for a more complete list.
” Legislative (Congress) can conduct investigations of Executive to see if funds are properly expended and laws enforced.”
“Legislative (Senate) has power to impeach Executive (President) with concurrence of 2/3, of members.”
“Legislative by Joint Resolution, can terminate certain powers granted to Executive (President) without his consent.
In fairness (some) while writing this article I learned the House of Representatives passed a resolution to file a suite against Obama.
“The president has waived work requirements for welfare recipients, unilaterally changed immigration laws, released the Gitmo Five without properly notifying Congress, which is the law, and ignored the statutory requirements of the Affordable Care Act,” House Rules Committee Pete Sessions (R-Texas) said. The resolution approved Wednesday only allows the House to file a suit against Obama over his decisions to Obamacare. While some Republicans were hoping for a broader authority to allow suits on other issues, Sessions said Republicans believe their best chance of success in the courts is to focus on Obamacare.

Depending on what fence you are lounging on, I guess something is better than nothing and late better than never. However, with just the above mentioned accusations, what took them so long. If the House believed these violations to be true, it was their responsibility under the Constitution to act. I understand they must build their case. It was a pretty open and shut case on the Gitmo Five. Obama’s other Executive orders haven’t exactly been a secret……..Richard Nixon he is not. I get it the Senate won’t follow through with impeachment. Whatever can be done, must be done.
I believe the citizens in the country could claim that Congress and the President have violated our Constitution, simply in regards to ignoring the Checks and Balance System.
We the People are a part of that system, we vote. We are ultimately responsible for removing people from office who do not take their oath of office and our Constitution seriously. It is our freedom at stake.
