America: Emperor Rising
Hail, Caesar! Those who are about to murder the Constitutionalists salute you!
Chuck Schumer (who else?) has introduced S.679, a bill to facilitate the “streamlining” of the nomination process by setting up a committee to reduce the paperwork nominees have to go through, and (this is just a minor point, really) reducing the number of appointees that need Senate approval.
In other words, he means to render Article II, Section 2 less relevant/useful/impotent than it already is. Among the (bipartisan!) traitorous bunch in co-sponsorship, we see the following:
- Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN)
- Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-NM)
- Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT)
- Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA)
- Sen. Thomas Carper (D-DE)
- Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME)
- Sen. Richard Durbin (D-IL)
- Sen. Mike Johanns (R-NE)
- Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ)
- Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-CT)
- Sen. Richard Lugar (R-IN)
- Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)
- Sen. John Reed (D-RI)
- Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV)
- Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)
Most of those names are of no surprise to me at all. Those that are elicit only mild surprise, in that I thought they preferred to keep their treason under wraps.
You know what’ll stop this? A really strongly written letter to our Representative in the House, that’ll fix it! (Not that I believe it will do anything to stop the problem or the troublemakers, but at this point I’ll try anything – Cum ulla sella in pugno taberna and all that.)
Are you tracking? Because the clock is ticking.
