THE COURTS ARE BECOMING IRRELEVANT

Rahm

Consider House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s creation of “proxy voting,” which facially violates the Quorum Clause of the U.S. Constitution.

U.S. Constitution Article I, Section 5, Clause 1:

Each House shall be the Judge of the Elections, Returns and Qualifications of its own Members, and a Majority of each shall constitute a Quorum to do Business; but a smaller Number may adjourn from day to day, and may be authorized to compel the Attendance of absent Members, in such Manner, and under such Penalties as each House may provide.

Although not explicit, the historical precedent and practice was that members of the House must be physically present to vote on legislation.

Following Rahm Emanuel’s famous dictate, “Let no crisis go to waste,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced a temporary rule change that maintained her Democrat majority during the Covid-19 pandemic by allowing members of the House to vote remotely by proxy, meaning they could authorize another member physically present in the chamber to cast their vote on their behalf.

H.Res.965 - Authorizing remote voting by proxy in the House of Representatives and providing for official remote committee proceedings during a public health emergency due to a novel coronavirus, and for other purposes.116th Congress (2019-2020)

This resolution authorizes and otherwise sets forth procedures for remote voting by proxy in the House of Representatives and provides for official remote committee proceedings during a public health emergency due to a novel coronavirus (e.g., the virus that causes COVID-19) for a 45-day period. Based on the status of the public health emergency, the 45-day period may be extended for an additional 45 days or terminated earlier. <Source>

The Resolution was passed on May 15, 2020, by the House in a Roll Call Vote (217-189 with 24 not voting) with virtually no Republican participation.

Texas files a Court objection to the proxy vote that led to the passage of the $1.7 Tril­lion Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023 fed­er­al Fund­ing bill passed uncon­sti­tu­tion­al­ly with less than half of U.S. Con­gress phys­i­cal­ly present and its impact on Texas.

The opinion appears to uphold the unconstitutionality of the proxy voting provision but does not carry the weight of the U.S. Supreme Court.

OPIN-HDRFor over 235 years, Congress understood the Constitution’s Quorum Clause to require a majority of members of the House or Senate to be physically present to constitute the necessary quorum to pass legislation.

This rule prevents a minority of members from passing legislation that affects the entire nation.

But despite the Constitution’s text and centuries of consistent practice, the House in 2020 created a rule that permitted non-present members to be included in the quorum count and vote by proxy.

Pursuant to that novel rule, the House passed a new law included within the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023, and that particular provision affects Texas. Like many constitutional challenges, Texas asserts that this provision is unenforceable against it because Congress violated the Constitution in passing the law.

In response, the defendants claim, among other things, that this Court has no power to address the issue because it cannot look to extrinsic evidence to question whether a bill became law. But because the Court is interpreting and enforcing the Constitution—rather than second-guessing a vote count—the Court disagrees.

The Court concludes that, by including members who were indisputably absent in the quorum count, the Act at issue passed in violation of the Constitution’s Quorum Clause.

Bottom line…

What value are the Courts if their rulings are ignored or delayed for years after the damage has been done and there is no meaningful remedy?

Supreme Court rejects Biden student loan forgiveness plan

President Biden does not have authority to implement his roughly $400 billion program to forgive student loan debt, the Supreme Court ruled Friday, issuing another blow to the administration’s bold claims of power in the final decision of the court’s term.

By afternoon, Biden announced a “new path” for loan forgiveness and started a federal rulemaking process, which could take months.

Biden contended that his administration had the authority to forgive student loan debt under the Higher Education Relief Opportunities for Students Act of 2003. That law allows the education secretary to waive or modify loan provisions in response to a national emergency, such as the pandemic. <Source> [OCS: Another crisis-driven program.]

Or, even more egregiously, a lawless regime deliberately ignores a Court ruling, knowing that the Court lacks any independent enforcement power and that the constitutional officers with a sworn duty to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States are regime puppets.

We are so screwed if “We the People” do not clean house (pun intended) and remove the progressive communist democrats from office in 2024.

CALIFORNIA DO NOT VOTE FOR LIAR, LEAKER, PERJURER, EVIDENCE FAKER ADAM SCHIFF

ADAM-SCHIFF-LOGO-2

It may be somewhat controversial, but it must be said…

Jews are among the smartest, well-informed, moral people on the planet. However, many refuse to accept what is before their eyes, are opinionated, and like to argue. They are optimistic people, often excusing bad behavior in others by claiming something adverse to their interests is a temporary aberration and things will get better. The old saying that ask any ten Jews about any subject and you will get eleven opinions—the last guy arguing both sides stating, “On one hand…”

So, I take great exception to this puff piece that appeared in the Jewish News Syndicate, the fastest-growing news agency covering Israel and the Jewish world.

Bs-adam-schiffPure, unfiltered, unadulterated bullshit!

JnsAdam Schiff: ‘Going to continue to defend Israel’s right to defend itself’

The frontrunner in the California Senate race for Dianne Feinstein’s former seat spoke with JNS exclusively days before the primary.

Support for Israel

Schiff’s campaign has secured the Democratic Majority for Israel PAC’s endorsement, as well as the support of several members of the California Legislative Jewish Caucus.

Although Schiff has made national headlines more frequently for angering Trump in recent years, the Jewish politician has been known more quietly and locally as a staunch supporter of Israel.

Throughout 12 terms in the U.S. House of Representatives, Schiff has distinguished himself from far-left members of his party by consistently voicing support for Israel’s security. Most recently, he’s spoken against a ceasefire in Gaza.

“I was just shocked and horrified by the barbarism of the attack of Oct. 7,” Schiff told JNS. “The scale of it, the mass murder and rape and torture, the kidnapping of Israelis and kidnapping of Americans.”

“I think many in the Jewish community have also been really shocked by the wave of antisemitism that’s been unleashed around the world, including on college campuses here in the United States,” he said. “Israel has the right to defend itself, has the duty to defend itself.”

“I don’t see how people can call on Israel to permanently ceasefire while a terrorist organization is controlling Gaza and threatening to attack them in the manner of Oct. 7 over and over and over again,” he added.

Asked how he would address the unprecedented surge in Jew-hatred, Schiff cited his track record supporting resolutions condemning antisemitism on college campuses, as well as his role on a task force designed to combat antisemitism and strengthen the FBI and law enforcement.

He told JNS that he was raised in a house with Jewish values that informed his approach throughout his political career, as well as his service as a prosecutor in the U.S. attorney’s office. “I was really raised with an ethic of tikkun olam,” he said, “of giving back, of service.” 

<Source>

Proof that Adam Schiff is a lying quisling scumbag…

The Democrat Party is filled with Jew-hating anti-Semites who believe Israel is the cause of many of the world’s problems—not the 12th-century Islamicists who foment trouble around the globe.

When faced with a roll-call vote to censure House Representative Rashida Tlaib, one of the most virulent anti-Semites in Congress calling for the destruction of Israel, Adam Schiff joined with known anti-Semites in Congress and voted against censure.

H.Res.845 - Censuring Representative Rashida Tlaib for promoting false narratives regarding the October 7, 2023, Hamas attack on Israel and for calling for the destruction of the state of Israel.

Vote-insert

Bottom line...

SCHIFF-TRUST-MEI promise I won’t screw you over like I did so many others!

Adam Schiff is a traitor to the United States, the State of California, and the House of Representatives. He cannot be trusted with the safety and security of America and has made a mockery of the House Intelligence Committee as he colluded with unregistered foreign operatives-- even keeping Swalwell, a member who was screwing a Communist Chinese spy in the Committee.

Vote for Steve Garvey or anyone else -- and, if you are Jewish, Schiff is a vote for the American wing of HAMAS.

We are so screwed.

VOTE 2024: THERE IS ONLY ONE CHOICE

There is no doubt that...

MONKEYS-dnc

But who are those...

MONKEYS-rnc

Top 10 reasons to vote Republican:

  1. Immigration Policy: Republicans favor stricter immigration policies, including border security measures and enforcement of immigration laws, to control illegal immigration and protect national sovereignty.

  2. National Security: Republicans prioritize a robust national defense and assertive foreign policy to protect the country's interests and ensure security at home and abroad.

  3. Individual Freedoms: Republicans advocate for individual liberties and freedoms, including gun rights, property rights, and freedom of speech. They oppose government regulations that infringe upon these freedoms.

  4. Fiscal Conservatism: Republicans advocate for lower taxes, reduced government spending, and fiscal responsibility. They believe in limited government intervention in the economy and prioritize balanced budgets. 

  5. Free Market Principles: Republicans support free-market capitalism, believing minimal government regulation fosters innovation, competition, and economic growth. 

  6. Traditional Values: Republicans support conventional social values, including opposition to abortion, support for traditional marriage, and emphasis on religious freedom.
  7. Limited Government: Republicans advocate for a smaller, less intrusive government focusing on its core functions, including national defense, law enforcement, and infrastructure. 

  8. Judicial Philosophy: Republicans prioritize appointing conservative judges who interpret the Constitution according to its original intent and uphold principles such as limited government and individual rights. 

  9. Promotion of Business and Job Growth: Republicans support policies encouraging entrepreneurship, job creation, and economic opportunity, such as deregulation and pro-business initiatives. 

  10. Opposition to Liberal Policies: Republicans oppose many of the policies advocated by progressive communis democrat politicians, such as higher taxes, expansive government programs, and progressive social policies based on identity politics rather than merit.

Bottom line...

Three things to remember...

  1. While Republicans cannot magically fix all of our problems, they are not the party that created the most dangerous of them.

  2. There are no Republicans in the Democrat Party, but there are Democrats in the Republican Party.

  3. We are so screwed if we continue to let the progressive communist democrats destroy our nation from within. Look at California and consider what could happen to the United States, now being invaded by illegal aliens.

LESSON ONE...

Libertarian Senator Rand P (R-KY) is a nutter, much like his father, former U.S. Representative Ron Paul (R-TX).

Both are inflexible absolutists who speak conservative but have very little influence in legislation, especially when you consider that Kentucky's senior Senator is the corrupt Republican reprobate Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

But that doesn't mean we can't learn first principles from Rand Paul.

SORRY JACK, THAT'S NOT SCIENCE, IT'S TYRANNY!

POLITICS-SCIENCE

The progressive communist democrat science mindfuck.

It’s about time to call out the narcissism and self-focus surrounding the agenda of so-called trans individuals who demand, under penalty of law, that we accept and celebrate their delusion that men can be women and women can be men. A scientific impossibility that is crippling our society as it erodes social conventions and norms. This includes the nonsense about the use of made-up words that purport to identify the many different gender identities claimed by the activists.

This is quite a departure from gay rights, where natural attractions between two individuals of the same sex are, well, natural, and that legal rights conferred to statutorily-coupled married individuals should be applied to both groups equally through a statutory “civil union,” a “personal relation arising out of a civil contract between two persons, to which the consent of the parties capable of making that contract is necessary.”

When biologists discuss sex as being “binary,” it denotes that there are only two sexes based on the binary classification between sperm  (small gametes) and ova (large gametes). Differences beyond gametes, including genetic chromosomal differences, hormone levels, and average morphological and behavioral differences, are a combination of social constructs used to define the cultural and social distinctions between males and females.

It is also true that, in a free society, you should be able to believe anything you want as long as you do not assume the moral or legal authority to force someone else to accept your belief, right or wrong. Hence, forced transgenderism is about power and has very little to do with freedom.

What we are seeing is a different manifestation of the power equation used by progressive communist democrats who want to destroy today’s society by corrupting social and cultural norms and substituting a version of a perverted society that grants perpetual authoritarian power over the population—defining freedom not as an inalienable right, but a privilege to be dispensed by the ruling elite as a reward for proper behavior or withheld as punishment for wrong thinking.

Science…

Science can be considered “unscientific or not science” when it deviates from the principles and methodologies that define the scientific method. Science relies on empirical evidence gathered through systematic observation, experimentation, data collection, and analysis rather than based on sparse anecdotal evidence, faith, belief, or feelings. If a claim or theory lacks supporting evidence or cannot be tested empirically, it falls outside the realm of science. Likewise, scientific theories must be falsifiable, meaning there must be a way to potentially prove them wrong through observation or experimentation. Claims that cannot be tested or proven false do not have a scientific basis and remain hypothetical.

Bottom line…

I am tired of the progressive communist democrats using “science” to excuse and implement authoritarian policies that lack scientific plausibility or fail to adhere to the scientific method.

We are so screwed.

OF COURSE, ACADEMIC HISTORIANS CLAIM TRUMP IS THE WORST PRESIDENT IN HISTORY

At a time when the human rights and checks and balance protections built into the U.S. Constitution are being ignored by the progressive communist democrats, they have the temerity to suggest that Franklin Delano Roosevelt (#2), Barack Obama (#7), and Joseph Biden (#14) are presidents of note, even though they have fundamentally transformed America in unhealthy un-American ways., including the destruction of systemically important institutions.

The 2024 “Presidential Greatness Project Expert Survey” ranking of presidential greatness, from President George Washington to Joe Biden, finds that former President Donald J. Trump ranks dead last (10.92). 

What else would you expect from an “echo chamber” of academics existing in an environment overpopulated with progressive communist democrats?

Likewise, as expected, we find the top ratings being awarded to Abraham Lincoln (95.03 average), Franklin Delano Roosevelt (90.83), George Washington (90.32), Teddy Roosevelt (78.58), Thomas Jefferson (77.53), Harry Truman (75.34), Barack Obama (73.8), and Dwight Eisenhower (73.73).

The rating scale of 0-100 for overall presidential greatness ranged from 0=failure, 50=average, and 100=great.

By their own words, “There are also several presidents where partisan polarization is evident – Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Obama, and Biden – but interestingly not for Bill Clinton,” they make a mockery of their findings.

But President Joe Biden’s #14 rating (62.66) is the final nail in the coffin.

Putting aside the fact that Biden’s presidential record is incomplete, one wonders how anyone, let alone a group of experts, rates a corrupt, mush-headed, congenital liar whose foreign policy prescriptions have overwhelmingly been on the wrong side of history so highly.

By their words, ye shall know them…

Bottom line…

This online survey is bullshit and would have been more appropriately presented on April 1, 2024 – April Fools’ Day.

This academic association’s inherent and apparent political bias stems from various factors, including the composition of its membership and the prevailing ideologies within the academic discipline it purports to represent. Perhaps we should examine the leadership of the American Political Science Association, which claims it is the “foremost organization of social science experts in presidential politics,” including the board of directors and executive committee who may hold certain political leanings that shape the direction of the organization and its activities.

According to the survey results, 525 respondents were invited to participate, and 154 usable responses were received, yielding a 29.3% response rate. This suggests only the most motivated and possibly the most biased and engaged individuals were likely to respond.

We are so screwed.

FORGET TAIWAN: WILL THE COMMUNIST CHINESE EVENTUALLY OWN SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA?

Watching

It was no surprise that a Communist Chinese spy served for almost twenty years in U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein’s San Francisco Office, including while she was the Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Surprisingly, however, the spy was allowed to retire with his pension and without government prosecution. The Chinese spy was Feinstein’s driver who also served as a gofer in her Bay Area office and as her liaison to the Asian-American community. The spy even attended Chinese consulate functions as a stand-in for Senator Feinstein. Feinstein was quick to point out that none of her California office staffers possessed a security clearance, as if this matters when discussing sensitive matters with a staffer nearby--who becomes a near-invisible functionary.

So why should I be surprised to find that the San Francisco Elections Commission has, for the first time in history, appointed a non-citizen who is ineligible to vote as an election official?

More surprising is that Hong Kong native Kelly Wong is an immigrant rights advocate. Wong is said to have arrived in the United States to pursue graduate studies in 2019.

Something seems fishy here as Wong claimed she would also continue her work for the progressive advocacy group Chinese for Affirmative Action—a non-government organization founded in 1969 whose mission is to protect the “civil and political rights of Chinese Americans and to advance multiracial democracy in the United States.” This suspiciously sounds like one of many pro-China front organizations. Wong has worked with the influence group since 2022.

Chinese influence groups seeking citizenship and political power?

WHAT WE DO

Comprising 11 Asian American social justice groups, the Asian Americans for Civil Rights and Equality (AACRE) network focuses on long-term movement building, capacity infrastructure, and leadership support for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders committed to social justice.

Amidst a pandemic and surge in anti-Asian hate, AACRE grassroots groups are supporting and leading marginalized populations including immigrants, refugees, formerly incarcerated individuals, and LGBTQ+ people.

Together, we are advancing an inclusive vision of justice for all communities.

HOW WE DO IT

AACRE leverages the power of its network by developing the relationships, critical connections, and unique strengths that exist among its member groups. Shared capacity work includes access to common facilities, financial management, and administrative support systems. Strategic communication and collaborative efforts include retreats, convenings, information sharing, and joint projects that promote a culture of trust, mutuality, and transformation.

THE ASIAN AMERICANS FOR CIVIL RIGHTS AND EQUALITY GROUPS:
  • The Alliance of South Asians Taking Action, works to educate, organize, and empower the Bay Area South Asian communities to end violence, oppression, racism and exploitation within and against diverse communities
  • APEX Express is a weekly magazine-style radio show featuring the voices and stories of Asians and Asian Americans from all corners of the community. The show is produced by a collective of media makers, djs, and activists and airs each week on KPFA 94.1FM.
  • The Asian Prisoner Support Committee works with Asian and Pacific Islander prisoners to educate the broader community about the growing number of APIs in the U.S. being imprisoned, detained, and deported.
  • Asian Refugees United builds intergenerational and inter-ethnic power for positive lasting change through sharing art, healing, culture and political engagement. Started in 2007 as a project of Forward Together, ARU addresses workers’ rights and community health issues in general by building the voice, visibility and power of Bhutanese and Vietnamese immigrant and refugee communities in East Oakland.
  • The mission of Chinese for Affirmative Action is to protect the civil and political rights of Chinese Americans and to advance multiracial democracy in the United States. CAA advocates for systemic change that protects immigrant rights, promotes language diversity, and remedies racial injustice.
  • Hmong Innovating Politics is a grassroots organization whose mission is to strengthen the political power of Hmong and disenfranchised communities through innovative civic engagement and strategic grassroots mobilization.
  • Hyphen is a news and culture magazine that tells the stories of Asian America, beyond identity, featuring emerging artists, thinkers and doers. By documenting and disseminating these stories, Hyphen contributes to the ever-expanding, multifaceted narrative of Asians in America.
  • Lavender Phoenix works to build LGBTQ+ Asian and Pacific Islander power by amplifying the voices and increasing the visibility of LGBTQ+ API communities. Through organizing, Lavender Phoenix inspires and trains leaders, establishes intergenerational connections, and documents and disseminates histories.
  • The Network on Religion and Justice for Asian and Pacific Islander Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer People works to nurture and support efforts toward a fully inclusive Asian Pacific Islander faith community.
  • VietUnity Bay Area – promotes a progressive voice within the Vietnamese Community. Through alliance building, community education, organizing, and collective action, Viet Unity Bay Area works towards positive social change that acknowledges and combats all forms and systems of oppression. VietUnity Bay Area connects it work to broader multi-racial and multi-class movements for social justice and systemic change.
  • Visibility Project is a national portrait and oral history archive highlighting queer Asian Pacific American women, trans, and gender non-conforming communities. The Visibility Project utilizes powerful photography and personal storytelling narratives that embrace the intersections of queer APAs.

According to her bio, Wong has worked with the United Nations International Organization for Migration, which seems to facilitate and fund illegal migration into the United States.

“Born and raised in Hong Kong, I moved to the US in 2019 and finished a master degree from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. I have devoted my career to championing immigrant rights and equity and inclusion. Prior to graduate school, I worked closely with victims of trafficking, migrant domestic workers, and refugees in Hong Kong while working at Fair Employment Agency, International Organization for Migration, and UNHCR. I am currently working at Chinese for Affirmative Action, which is the fiscal sponsor of Stop AAPI Hate campaign, to provide legal services and advocate for low‐income AAPI immigrants in San Francisco.”

Bottom line…

Consider how many military-age Chinese men are transgressing our open border under the Biden open borders policy. How many will infiltrate American businesses, including those associated with critical infrastructure? [Alarming Rise in Military-Aged Chinese Men Entering US Illegally, Border Patrol Union Chief Warns]

There is no need to engage in war when Americans are willing to sell out their nation for the proverbial thirty pieces of silver or a sexual fling.

Remember Eric Swalwell, another Bay Area Democrat, and his romp with Chinese operative Fang-Fang. The same Swalwell, a member of the House Intelligence Committee who was defended by liar, leaker, perjurer, and evidence fabricator Adam Schiff, who is now running for the U.S. Senate.

Or foreigners fighting the battle in our Courts, using our own Constitution and laws against us—lawfare.

We are so screwed.

Progressive communist democrats have started calling illegal aliens 'migrants' so they can pretend the people crossing our border are not doing so illegally.

TRUMP RULING: IGNORE THE LAW, IGNORE THE FACTS, STOP TRUMP IN 2024

Judge-trump-justice

In an amazing display of progressive communist democrat police state justice, New York Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron found that Trump was guilty of fraud, conspiracy, and issuing false financial statements and false business records, and fined Trump and the Trump Organization  $370 for a standard business practice with no declared victims.

There was no trial; the prosecution’s case, using a never-applied law, was conducted by the Judge based on the attorney-filed briefs, after which he held Trump guilty as charged. The only thing to be decided at trial was the penalty to be assessed.

Considering the outrageous amount of the fine, one must ask about the disposition of funds since there were no declared victims—or is this a case of state forfeiture of assets where the money flows to satisfy New York’s budget deficit?

The Judge found Trump’s former attorney, fraudster and perjurer Michael Cohen, a credible witness because his State-sponsored testimony aided the State’s case.

"Although the animosity between the witness and the defendant is palpable, providing Cohen with an incentive to lie, the Court found his testimony credible, based on the relaxed manner in which he testified, the general plausibility of his statements, and, most importantly, the way his testimony was corroborated by other trial evidence. A less-forgiving factfinder might have concluded differently, might not have believed a single word of a convicted perjurer. This factfinder does not believe that pleading guilty to perjury means that you can never tell the truth. Michael Cohen told the truth."

The Judge appears upset that Trump did not confess, roll over, and beg the Court’s mercy.

"Their complete lack of contrition and remorse borders on pathological. They are accused only of inflating asset values to make more money. The documents prove this over and over again. This is a venial sin, not a mortal sin. Defendants did not commit murder or arson. They did not rob a bank at gunpoint. Donald Trump is not Bernard Madoff. Yet, defendants are incapable of admitting the error of their ways. Instead, they adopt a 'See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil' posture that the evidence belies."

Adding a little poetry…

“The English poet Alexander Pope (1688-1744) first declared, ‘To err is human, to forgive is divine.’ Defendants apparently are of a different mind.”

Who was really calling the shots?

CO-JUDGE

Bottom line…

Of course, the ruling will be appealed, and the matter will drag on through the courts—enriching attorneys as they delay and delay.

Undoubtedly, the prosecutor, the Judge, and affiliated parties should be impeached, removed from office, and prosecuted for attempting to interfere with a federal presidential election. Trump should sue the State of New York and the Democrat Party to recover expenses, punitive damages, and an official policy.

We should all be thankful to Donald Trump for revealing the depth of corruption in the Democrat Party and the institutions it has corrupted over the years since Barack Obama was elected.

We are so screwed.
