A Constitutional Crisis — Part 1
The Democrats have been screaming that President Trump is creating a constitutional crisis. Just like everything else the Democrats complain about it is they who have created the constitutional crisis. You know they blamed Trump of ‘colluding’ with Russia when in reality it was Hillary and the DNC who paid for the dossier and Hillary who sold Russia 20% of our uranium to Russia. I think Mueller stopped the investigation because all roads led to Hillary and Obama.
What we are seeing is the Democrat Party ignores the principles of our Founding Document, the Constitution. Our Constitution set guidelines for the federal government and anything not listed there is under the authority of the States. Our Federal government has very little it has authority over. Protecting the citizens is the most important duty of the federal government yet they have ignored that duty for decades. Reagan attempted to get border security in 1986 but Senator Schumer saw to it that it never happened. He has blocked any type of border security since. It is a never-ending source of voters for the Democrat Party that he does not want stopped.
We know that over the eight years that Obama was president the NSA, National Security Agency, has been collecting information from social media, emails, texts, posts on Facebook, Twitter and all other social media and even our phone conversations. The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution states: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. The collecting of this information is a direct violation of this Constitutional right. Congress has done nothing to stop it. This practice was kicked into high gear after September 11, 2001, with the Patriot Act. We should pay attention to the warning issued by Benjamin Franklin: They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Looking at all of the government agencies we have; Department of Education, Department of Transportation, Department of Agriculture, Department of Defense, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, this one should be a convenience store, not a government agency. This is just to give you an idea of the overreach of the federal government. There are 668 government agencies. 1 I’m not saying that as we have grown and become a world leader in power and prosperity that we don’t need some of these agencies but at no time was the Constitution amended to allow this to happen. In looking at a couple of these agencies the Department of Education is NOT an area that the federal government has any authority to control. Now, they will claim that they don’t set curriculum they just perform oversite for uniformity, but they do set testing standards. When you set testing standards you just set the curriculum.
The Democrat Party has a long record of ignoring the principles and guidelines of the Constitution. Woodrow Wilson took our economic system and gave it to a foreign organization. The Federal Reserve isn’t federal, and it isn’t a reserve, it is an organization that controls our interest rates and our money supply. He stated after he had allowed the formation of the Federal Reserve: “I am a most unhappy man; I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of Credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all of our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”
There have been numerous calls for all bills to list the part of the Constitution allows this particular bill but that has never been passed. The Democrats contempt for the Constitution and any attempt to reign them in is legendary. One member of the House from the State of California, surprise, surprise, is Pete Stark, Representative CA 13th District (1993 – 2013). He’ll tell you in no uncertain terms that as a citizen, you’re no more than a pile of that stuff Bess Truman took twenty-five years to get Harry to call fertilizer. Congressman Pete Stark continues his rampage against the American people. His views on what this country should continue to be exposed. In a recent town hall meeting, someone questioned Stark on how demanding that others pay for your healthcare is in the US Constitution. Stark said with conviction that the federal government can basically do whatever the hell it wants, thus insinuating that the citizens have no say. In essence, Pete Stark is saying that the federal government is a dictator.
“The Federal Government can do most anything in this country,” Stark said in response.
There are no checks and balances in his mind. The feds are an all-powerful being and your chances of stopping it from doing anything is nil.
This is the same congressman who recently said in June 2010 that “The borders are quite secure” and asked a minuteman in the audience “who you gonna kill today?”. While you may disagree on the immigration issue – unlikely as poll after poll shows 80+% oppose illegal immigration – Stark has also showed his contempt for an elderly constituent in September 2009 by telling him “I wouldn’t dignify you by peeing on your leg. It wouldn’t be worth wasting the urine.”. 2
This is the so-called party of the people. They stomp on the rights of the people if those right are in the way of the Democrats getting what they want. The most recent example of this slap in the face to our laws by the Democrats is the recent House vote to find Attorney General Barr in contempt of Congress for not releasing information from the Mueller Report that would be illegal for him to release. That is how blatantly the Democrats ignore the laws and our Constitution. They demand Trump be found guilty of something so they can impeach him, and they don’t care what kind of illegal activity they have to do to get that information or what they may have to do to invent that information. This is exactly what they did with all the Russian collusion hoax. This was an attempt to take down a duly elected president because they wanted to retain power and now, they are being exposed and they want him out of office before too many more of them are outed.
