In the House of Representatives Tell the Truth ~ Penalty Phase… But Circumvent or Break Laws ~ It’s All Good

Remember This?

Speaker Pelosi agrees to plan to scold Rep. Wilson for ‘You lie’ outburst so then the House punishes Wilson in a seven day turnaround from act to motion.

Fast Forward to This:


Rangel May Just Get Slap On Wrist on these Ethics Charges presented in doc form on June 17, 2010 and the investigation has been ongoing for years.

It’s not who you know… it’s what you know about who!

Will the US Supreme Court Attempt to Circumvent the US Constitution

With linked Headlines like these:

High Court Weighs Anti-Terror Material Support Law

U.S. Supreme Court to hear terrorism case

What portion of the population of the United States of America wants the United States Supreme Court to circumvent the U.S. Constitution by plying and playing with the First Amendment thus legalizing aiding the enemy (Terrorists)?

The US Constitution clearly states:

“…Section. 3.

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted…”

Who embraces Terrorism? hmm?

Why will it take weeks or months for the Supreme Court to make a decision? hmm?

Is it because the US Constitution clearly states:

“…Section. 4.

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors…”

and this option is currently viable and probable as of many recent events and revelations?

Barbara Boxer Undermines Congress But Never the Title Senator

Senator Barbara Boxer: “Don’t Call Me Ma’am” – General Michael Walsh

Don’t you dare forget her title! It’s hers, hers, hers!

Barbara Boxer: Explain to me how Congress works again. . .

Watch as she suggests to Bogus POTUS on evading Congressional Authorization of Spending! Just in case she forgot her job description:

Oath of Office for United States Senator:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

The power of legislatures to tax and spend.

“Spending power is conferred to state and federal legislatures through their constitution. Judicial Review of legislative spending varies from state to state, but the law of federal spending informs courts in all states.

The power of the U.S. Congress to tax and spend for the General Welfare is granted under Article I, Section 8, Clause 1, of the U.S. Constitution: “The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States.” This clause is known as the Spending Power Clause or the General Welfare Clause. The Spending Power Clause does not grant to Congress the power to pass all laws for the general welfare; that is a power reserved to the states under the Tenth Amendment. Rather, it gives Congress the power to control federal taxation and spending…

…There are circumstances, however, when congressional spending power receives serious scrutiny. One example is when Congress seeks to withhold federal funds from states that refuse to enact laws consistent with federal mandates. Incident to the Spending Power Clause, Congress may condition a state’s receipt of federal revenues on the fulfillment of certain criteria. For example, assume Congress wants all schoolteachers to obtain a master’s degree. The Constitution does not grant Congress the power to pass a law to that effect. However, Congress may appropriate federal money that states can obtain if they enact legislation requiring a master’s degree.

When Congress allocates conditional funding, it must do so unambiguously, so that states and other affected parties are adequately advised of their choices and are aware of the consequences of noncompliance. Conditional federal spending must relate to a national interest, as opposed to state, local, or individual interests. Finally, conditional spending may be invalidated if it is excessively coercive. For example, withholding of an excessively high percentage of federal funds may be invalidated by a court.

According to many constitutional scholars, conditional federal spending is a violation of state sovereignty over matters reserved to the states. Without a meaningful check on conditional federal spending, Congress can withhold federal benefits from states under the Spending Power Clause on any rational condition it desires. This has the effect of creating one central government, a system that was repugnant to the Framers of the Constitution when not properly balanced with the rights of state governments. Indeed, Thomas Jefferson predicted that the Spending Power Clause would reduce the Constitution “to a single phrase, that of instituting a Congress, with power to do … whatever evil they pleased.” Proponents of conditional federal funding argue that it does not force states to change their laws, and that states are free to forgo the receipt of some federal funds in order to retain their autonomy…

…Some constitutional provisions expressly prohibit certain federal spending. Under the First Amendment, Congress may not spend federal money in the aid of religion. Under Article II, Section 1, Clause 7, Congress may not increase or decrease the salary of a president during his or her term. Under the Fourteenth Amendment, Congress may not spend money on “any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States.”

Someone is advising someone on circumventing the U.S. Constitution and all of it’s provisions. Now who was it that taught U.S. Constitutional Law? hmm? I wonder Have US Government Officials Committed Treason?
