What Constitution? What Oath? What America?

The purpose of this article is simply to point out the 41 members of the Senate who pose a threat to America. Don’t confuse relative brevity with being trivial! Let’s explore. Continue reading What Constitution? What Oath? What America?

The Constitution Or The Crook?

It appears that the House will vote to block President Trump’s National Emergency Declaration sometime this week. Under the existing law Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has no choice other than to put the resolution on the Senate floor for consideration within 15 days of its passage in the House and delivery to the Senate.

It is that simple and clear. Let’s explore.   Continue reading The Constitution Or The Crook?

I feel so strongly about this that at the risk of having a somewhat boring and cumbersome to read article I am naming each one of them herein. As Justice Louis Brandeis famously stated, “Sunshine is said to be the best of disinfectants.” Let’s explore.   Continue reading Deplorable Congressional Action
