Anyone paying attention to this current assault on our Democracy knows that the Banana Republicans have chosen to defend their indefensible president rather than defend the Constitution that they took an oath to protect. Clearly every last one of these Republican farts need to be thrown out of office and thrown into jail for aiding and abetting the enemies of our Constitution. Not only are the Banana Republicans defiling their oaths to defend the Constitution, they are defiling even the Pledge of Allegiance, you know, where even first graders learn that to pledge allegiance to the flag means “to pledge allegiance to the Republic for which it stands.” Having disgraced this pledge—one any first grader undertakes and understands—all Republicans who refuse to stand up for our Republic and for our Constitution, should be seen and treated as the traitors to America that they, in fact, are.
The Repugnant-ones have already proven themselves traitors. We all know that we cannot count on any of those with a R behind their name to do the right thing for our country, our Republic or our Constitution. Hopefully, if and when this country ever returns to sanity, they will all be put out into the cold where they belong, perhaps in a long self-imposed exile if they are not themselves held in cold, dark cells somewhere. No doubt, the Devil—with Whom they and their Evangelical followers are in league—has many special places in Hell already reserved for the whole hypocritical and diabolical lot of them.
America has no one left to stand up for our Republic but the Democrats. Knowing and understanding this, the American people clearly chose to put the Democrats in control of the House of Representatives in the midterm election of 2018 to act as a check and balance on our out-of-control president and his out-of-control Executive Branch—an absolute constitution duty that the Republicans refused to take seriously during the first two years of this criminal president’s first term in office.
The Democratically-controlled House is now being stonewalled by an abhorrent president. And Chairman Jerrold Nadler and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have each declared that our nation is now facing “a constitutional crisis.” This dire situation should not be underestimated by anyone. We as a nation are in what I would term, “deep shit.”
Where are our heroes who will defend our nation and our constitution? They certainly do not reside anywhere within the cowardly ranks of the aiding and abetting Repugnant-ones. So where are the Democrats, who we thought would jump up to defend us against this tyrant-in-chief? Apparently, they are hiding behind public opinion polls, waiting for the public to lead them to Impeachment Proceedings, rather than the other way around. Dare I say, the Democrats are thus far acting so cowardly, that they risk lumping themselves in with the cowardly traitors who still dare to call themselves Republicans. Rather than stepping forward, the Democrats remain gutless and indecisive even in the face of proof beyond any doubt that Special Counsel Mueller indicated at least 10 separate incidents where our 45thpresident committed the crime of obstruction of justice. He only escaped indictment on these ten federal felonies because of the ill-conceived Office of Legal Counsel opinion of the Justice Department (an opinion whose constitutional basis has yet to be tested by our courts) that a sitting president cannot be indicted. Rather than the Democrats beginning Impeachment Hearings as their sworn duty to the Constitution demands, they wait. Already long overdue once the president was found to be an unindicted co-conspirator of another felony count, this one of conspiracy to defraud the United States of America, the Dems have forced the American public to wait on them. Indeed, we are forced to wait even longer for justice.
It makes one wonder if justice will ever come. Indeed, has our government and our politics been so overwhelmed by the dark money from foreign powers, that we as a people will be forced to live under the Russian-installed president and newly-appointed Emperor and King, and bend in all things to his will?
An opinion piece in today’s Washington Post written by Samuel Erman and Edward Kleinbard, law professors at the USC School of Law, explained that “the House has the power to arrest people who defy its orders,” under what is termed Inherent Contempt. The Democrats in the House can, themselves, arrest Bill Barf, Steve Mnuchin, and any other inept political hack who refuses to obey any legal subpoena issued by any House committee. The Congress has indeed, arrested people before under its Inherent Contemptpower. The last time Congress did so was in 1934. The Democratically-controlled Congress still has the absolute legal right to enforce its subpoenas with contempt and with arrest, if they so chose. They just lack the political will to do so. Period.
For how much longer will the Democrats remain gutless, impotent, refusing to act against a president who continues to spit on the Constitution and to vomit all over the concept of Congress as a separate but coequal branch of government? How long before the Democrats FINALLY do their job and impeach this asshole-in-chief? Or will they simply stand by and watch the Orange Monster tear down everything that the Constitution once stood for until nothing at all is left? How deep does their unbridled gutlessness go? Does it go as deep as the proven cowardice and national treachery of their Republican cohorts? And are the Democrats in the House of Representatives making a case that they, too, must all be removed along with the Republican-ones? Or do they stand for anything at all, other than trying to be reelected without doing their constitutional duty to hold this criminal regime accountable for their crimes?
As I pointed out in my last blog, if Congress could and did throw people in jail for refusing to obey a congressional subpoena in 1934, they sure as hell can and must do it now, while our Democracy is under attack. If they can’t find the courage to do this, then they should just pack up now, leave Washington, and surrender our nation to the dictates of our newly declared Dictator and Emperor on his usurped throne.
