Several dozen U.S. House Democrats pushing for action on gun control protested on the floor of the House of Representatives on Wednesday, chanting "no bill, no break!" and demanding that the chamber put off an upcoming recess until legislation is debated. (Source)When you don't have a majority in the House apparently this is how you get action if you're a Democrat. You throw a temper tantrum. You sit down on the House floor until your "demands" are met. And Shrillary has stated that she approves, this, in her fetid swamp of a brain, is what "leadership" looks like. Shows me that she is definitely not qualified for the office she is seeking.
When will we, the American people, remind those idiotic, petulant, entitled morons in Washington D.C. that they are most emphatically not our leaders. They are our representatives, they work for us.
Meanwhile Breitbart has reported that "White House press secretary Josh Earnest intimated Tuesday that Republicans are cowards for opposing Monday’s gun control proposals." (Source)
So essentially, progressive elements in the United States government, in both the Executive and Legislative branches are upset that Republicans want to (finally) uphold the Constitution of the United States.
Rather than try to find ways to defeat Islamic terrorism, they wish to disarm the American people. Is that what they seek? It sure appears that way to me.
Here's something the progressives in the White House and on the floor (literally) of the House should make themselves familiar with first, the oaths they swore upon entering office -
“The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.” — U.S. Constitution, Article VI, clause 3The oath noted in Article VI of the Constitution is defined in U.S. law as follows -
Title 5 U.S. Code § 3331 - Oath of office (Source)
An individual, except the President, elected or appointed to an office of honor or profit in the civil service or uniformed services, shall take the following oath: “I, AB, 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.” This section does not affect other oaths required by law.The oath sworn by the President of the United States is explicitly spelled out in the Constitution in Article II II, Section One, Clause 8 (Source) -
Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:—"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."Once they have familiarized themselves with what they swore to do, they should read this section of U.S. law -
Title 18 U.S. Code § 2381 - Treason (Source)
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.By seeking to disarm the American people, I would argue that these fools in government are providing aid and comfort to the enemies of this country. One of whom just slaughtered 49 innocent civilians and injured 53 more in the fair city of Orlando. Before you argue that the asswipe who perpetrated that atrocity was an American citizen, reread the part of the oath which states "all enemies, foreign and domestic."
I'm sure our enemies overseas are rooting for those nitwits on the House floor. As for me, I would charge them with treason. I do believe a case could be made for that.
