Democratic Hopefuls Offer 4 Plans That Require Constitutional Amendments

Democrats running for president are making four promises they cannot possibly deliver. This is a good thing for them because they cannot be held accountable since they require constitutional amendments. They are lowering the voting age to 16, introducing term limits for Supreme Court justices, dissolving the Electoral College and adopting a National Popular Vote and reintroducing the Equal Rights Amendment. The House could pass all four bills, but it’s unlikely the Senate would. The reintroduction of the Equal Rights Amendment is purely political and would be used as an election issue in 2020.

From The Daily Caller

LOWERING THE VOTING AGE TO 16.

In order for the voting age to be lowered to 16, Congress would have to pass an amendment to an amendment. The 26th Amendment, ratified in 1971, lowered the national voting age from 21 to 18. A new amendment would have to be ratified that would supersede the 26th.

Democratic Sens. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, and Amy Klobuchar have not given this particular policy their full-throated endorsement, but all three have said that they are at least willing to have the conversation.

INTRODUCING TERM LIMITS FOR SUPREME COURT JUSTICES.

Article III, Section I of the Constitution states that “The judges, both of the supreme and inferior courts, shall hold their offices during good behavior…” Unless they are impeached, judicial appointments are for life or until the appointee retires.

But Democratic New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker has suggested that Supreme Court justices should be subject to term limits and that every president should have the opportunity to make three high court appointments during his or her term in office.

Several Democratic candidates, including former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Kamala Harris, and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, have said that they were open to changes on the court. Buttigieg and O’Rourke have voiced support for a new court with 15 justices — five chosen by Democrats, five chosen by Republicans and five chosen by unanimous approval of the other ten justices.

DISSOLVING THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE AND ADOPTING A NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE

In order to replace the Electoral College with a National Popular Vote, which would allow the president to be elected directly by the people, an amendment superseding Article II, Section I (clauses 2 and 3), as well as the 12th Amendment, would be necessary.

Democrats have been calling for a move to a popular vote, arguing that it’s the only way to make sure that “every vote counts.” A number of states have already attempted to side-step the Electoral College by opting to give all of their electoral votes to the winner of the nationwide popular vote. Renewed calls came from many in the party after the 2016 presidential election, when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton won the popular vote but lost the Electoral College.

REINTRODUCING THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT

The Equal Rights Amendment states that “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.” Proponents argue that it would make it easier to enforce equal pay laws, protect access to abortion and help to protect women from harassment.

The ERA has been around for decades without ever getting enough states on board to ratify it. Ratification of this amendment would be a priority for Harris.

The 2020 primary is just getting underway, and at least a few more candidates are expected to declare their intentions in the coming weeks, so this may just be the tip of the iceberg with regard to radical policy proposals and possible changes to the Constitution.

Did Baltimore Mayor Leave the State After 5 FBI/IRS Raids Against Her?

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh has not been seen since April 1st, supposedly to recover from pneumonia. Both of her houses, a business, her city hall office and the home of one of her aides were raided by the FBI and the IRS. Pugh has been implicated in a scandal whereby she sold books in an inordinate amount by groups with whom she has ties. While she was a board member of the University of Maryland system, they bought half a million dollars worth of books. Kaiser Permanente bought $114,000 worth of books as they pursued a lucrative contract that they were awarded.

Baltimore CBS Local reported:

Where is Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh? It’s the question buzzing around the city as the FBI and IRS raid Pugh’s home, City Hall and several other locations tied to her Thursday. But, no one has seen the mayor and her own spokesperson doesn’t know where she is even though she’s supposed to be recovering from pneumonia.

Pugh’s spokesman, James Bentley, told The Associated Press Thursday that he hadn’t spoken with the mayor and doesn’t know where she is. Her defense attorney, Steve Silverman, did not immediately return calls; his office routed calls to an answering machine.

From CNN

Republican Gov. Larry Hogan’s office confirmed that the searches are tied to the book scandal. He was briefed on the raids by a law enforcement adviser, his office said, and Hogan called for Pugh to resign.
“Now more than ever, Baltimore City needs strong and responsible leadership,” Hogan said in a statement. “Mayor Pugh has lost the public trust. She is clearly not fit to lead. For the good of the city, Mayor Pugh must resign.”
Steven Silverman, Pugh’s attorney, disputed the characterization that Thursday’s searches were a “raid” and said federal agents served a “limited subpoena for original financial records” that the law firm had for representing her in the “Healthy Holly matter.”
“The agents were polite and courteous, and the process was conducted in an expeditious and professional manner,” Silverman said in a statement.
Spokesmen for Pugh and Jack Young, the acting mayor of Baltimore, had no comment on Thursday’s developments. The state prosecutor’s office — which Hogan said he asked to investigate Pugh — said it couldn’t confirm or deny any investigation.

Massachusetts Activist Judge Who Helped Illegal Alien Escape ICE Agents Arrested And Indicted

A sitting judge was just indicted on Thursday for blocking ICE agents from detaining a twice-deported illegal alien.

Newton trial court Judge Shelley Richmond Joseph, and her court officer, Wesley MacGregor, were both charged with conspiracy to obstruct justice, obstruction of justice, aiding and abetting and obstruction of a federal proceeding.

It’s about time. Hopefully the other “Resistance” progressive activist judges are taking notes.  It is unlawful to abuse the power given to you as a judge to violate federal laws all because you hate the president.

From The Gateway Pundit:

The indictment stems from an April 2018 incident from when the activist judge helped Jose Medina-Perez avoid ICE agents by sneaking out of the courthouse secretly covertly through a back door to evade ICE agents.  MacGregor used his security access card to help the criminal illegal alien sneak out of the courthouse.  I seriously hope that illegal alien hasn’t harmed anyone since the incident.

Jose Medina-Perez had been deported two times and had a fugitive warrant out for his arrest for drunk driving and had been arraigned on narcotics charges — this is who Judge Shelley Joseph wants lurking around in society.

Jose Medina-Perez had been deported two times and had a fugitive warrant out for his arrest for drunk driving and had been arraigned on narcotics charges — this is who Judge Shelley Joseph wants lurking around in society.

“This case is about the rule of law. The allegations in today’s indictment involve obstruction by a sitting judge, that is intentional interference with the enforcement of federal law, and that is a crime,” U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts Andrew Lelling said Thursday.

“As public servants, all of the officers in the court make a promise — a promise to serve the people’s interest above all else. Today we know this promise has been broken,” said Peter Fitzhugh, special agent in charge of the Homeland Security Investigations in Boston, who led the investigation.

He continued, “The people of this country deserve nothing less than to know that their appointed and elected representatives are working on their behalf, while adhering to and enforcing the rule of law, not a personal agenda.”

Now we need to have the same legal philosophy come down on all the Democrat politicians who violate federal immigration laws every day by declaring their jurisdictions sanctuaries for illegal aliens.

The already twice-deported illegal alien, who was arrested in Pennsylvania on a drug possession charge, had a detainer on him by ICE, and ICE agents were waiting for him in the lobby, not realizing that the criminal alien had already been allowed to run out the back door and get away.

Up until this point many activist judges have ruled against the Trump administration not based on the law, but their political ideology coupled with the accolades they receive by doing a solid for the Resistance.  So far they’ve done this with impunity, as they know nothing will happen to them.  Letting a criminal illegal alien run away to avoid ICE is even worse.

Hopefully, the Trump administration will start to crack down on politicians, judges, and other office holders who defy federal laws for political reasons at the expense of the safety and security of the American people.

Joe Biden Kicks Off Presidential Campaign With Praise of Antifa

In the kickoff of his third try for president, Joe Biden endorsed the violence of Antifa, which could explain why he has failed twice already. The violent tactics against conservatives are widely known and widely endorsed by the Democrat Party. Joe Biden proudly hailed them as heroes and as being nothing at all like white nationals. All that hair sniffing must have gone to his head. No doubt, Antifa will be equally as violent in 2020 – if not even more so. His endorsement could come back to haunt him during the presidential campaign should he prevail in the primaries.

From The Daily Caller

Former Vice President Joe Biden endorsed Antifa in a video announcing his presidential bid Thursday, characterizing the group as “courageous” and saying it’s wrong to draw a moral equivalence between white nationalist groups and those opposing them.

The violent methods of Antifa are well documented. The nebulous group often uses these violent means against peaceful conservative speakers, benign free speech advocates, and even journalists.

In a retelling of the events at a 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., Biden describes the white nationalists as having “crazed faces, illuminated by torches, veins bulging and baring the fangs of racism,” but describes the Antifa members who engaged violently with them as “a courageous group of Americans.”

“A violent clash ensued, and a brave young woman lost her life,” Biden says in the video. “And that’s when we heard the words of the president of the United States that stunned the world and shocked the conscience of this nation.”

“He said there were quote some very fine people on both sides. Very fine people on both sides? With those words, the President of the United States assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it.”
