Trump Is a Threat to the Constitution? Nice Try, Nancy

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- This week, two high-profile Democrats mouthed their party's delusional mantra that President Trump is a threat to the Constitution — a rich allegation from those would dismantle major pillars of our republican system of government.

While the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris was still burning, quixotic impeachment crusader, Rep. Steve Cohen, said on MSNBC's “Hardball,” “What he has done to the Constitution and the rule of law is as bad as that fire did to Notre Dame. He's torching the entire structure of government and the people's respect for it. And the Congress needs to act.” Poor form, poor judgment and just plain over-the-top insanity.

The next day on CNN, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “Everything is at stake in this election: the Constitution of the United States, with the president who's trying to usurp the power of the legislative branch of government; the environment in which we live; a Republican Party that is in denial about the assault on climate and the climate crisis, which is a health issue, a national security issue, an economic and jobs issue, and a moral issue.” Misguided, incoherent hyperbole.

I doubt that these dueling attacks were coordinated. When the party sings from the same hymnal — at least on Trump — conspiratorial coordination is unnecessary. But it's noteworthy that they're still beating this drum, even though their collusion gambit has backfired, and considering that they are the ones engaging in a full-scale assault on the Constitution. Let us count the ways.

The framers believed our rights are God-given, and thus inalienable, and they sought to ensure them by designing a system of limited government.

Just providing for the people's democratic participation would be insufficient to secure their liberty, because people can vote themselves into tyranny. They knew men aren't angels and that, left to their own devices, they would eventually subjugate others. So, in addition to establishing the Bill of Rights, they divided power among different levels of government — national, state and local — and within the federal branch — legislative, executive and judicial. They crafted a partially but not purely, democratic system. Indeed, they imposed safeguards against pure democracy (including the Electoral College), which they knew would lead to mob rule.

Democrats complain about Trump's supposedly authoritarian disposition — pointing to his bullying nature and combative tweets, as if Stalin, Mao or Hitler would have relied on such anemic methods to amass their power and terrorize their people. Please don't respond that Trump is engaged in Nazi-like propaganda, or that he threatens the freedom of the press by calling the “fake news media” the “enemy of the people.” Trump is mostly defending himself against the daily barrage of propaganda leveled against him by a dishonest, monolithic, leftist media that is the arm of the Democratic Party. His rhetorical rejoinders seek to showcase the unfairness and dishonesty of his detractors. And unaccompanied by any effort to muzzle them, they are, in the scheme of things, harmless. They are certainly no threat to the Constitution.

Long before their recent barrage of proposals to alter and circumvent the Constitution to make it easier for them to win elections, the Democrats worked in other ways to undermine our system of limited government. Their judicial activism resulted in the judiciary usurping powers from the other two political branches, thereby upsetting the constitutional scheme. Their penchant for their presidents to issue unlawful executive orders has also undermined the balance of powers. Their passage of the Administrative Procedure Act in 1946 resulted in an enormous power shift from Congress to unelected, unaccountable, executive branch, bureaucrats whose administrative agencies are models of the type of tyranny the framers warned about, because they combine legislative, executive and judicial powers under one tent.

By the way, the allegedly anti-Constitution ogre, President Trump, has done more to disempower this “fourth branch of government” than any other president, so the constitutional system is stronger, not weaker, as a result.

More recently, Democrats have proposed a rash of disturbing ideas designed to alter our system of government through fundamental changes in our elections. The same Steve Cohen, who's now yelling about President Trump's threat to the constitutional order, introduced a bill to effectively eliminate the Electoral College and provide for the direct election of the president and vice president.

Democrats have advanced proposals to pack the Supreme Court, and a majority of them have voted to reduce the voting age to 16, which is egregious on multiple levels and unwise. In addition, Pelosi introduced the euphemistically dubbed For the People Act, which would overhaul federal election laws to micromanage and centralize the election process now administered by the states, and which would favor the election of Democrats. Other examples of Democrats' mischief that impairs free and fair elections, include their opposition to voter ID laws, and their objection to a citizenship question on the census form.

And please don't get me started on the Democrats' failed coup to delegitimize and oust President Trump, or their ongoing efforts to baselessly impeach him. Suffice it to say that he represents no threat to the Constitution, but Democrats do. But why shouldn't they? Many of them have openly said that America is not that great, so why trifle over preserving the integrity of the document whose ideas make it unique?

Face It, the Democrats do not just hate President Trump, they hate all Republicans. They hate what we stand for,
our ideas, and our way of life. They would hate who ever was in office. It’s not so much the Democrats that you have to worry about, you know who they are, it’s the RINO’s, they hide behind party affiliation, but follow the Democrat agenda.

Shame on every Gun Owner who votes Democrat

Nancy is right…from the wrong direction. Trump is a threat to the Constitution as the communist democ rats see it.
Trump threatens to support and defend the Constitution.
Trump threatens to uphold, and enforce the Constitution.
Trump threatens to validate Constitutional laws, and principles.
Trump threatens to reinforce the glue that binds the Constitution together, and to the American people.
Nancy, et al is a “rule of law” Communist pogue.
Trump is a “Rule of Constitutional Law” enforcer. The exact opposite of the Communist doctrine- rule of law!

Except when he say take the guns first, due process second. I fail to see how that supports and defends Constitutional Rights! To the contrary, in this instance, he is a threat to our Rights as he advocates chilling same.

Another instance, bump stocks, at his direction, administratively rewrite a definition, when Congress refused too, changing legal commerce to illegal retroactively, with criminal penalties attached.

You will notice however, the likes of Pelosi care less about these encroachments!

The real reason all these evil democrats want to impeach Donald Trump is because they do not really think they can beat him in the 2020 election. They are doing everything in their power to change our operations to benefit what ever dumb shit they back, I really hope it is Joe Biden. There is absolutely no reason to lower the voting age to 16. There is no reason for felons locked up in prison to vote and there is absolutely no reason not to have voter ID. It is all about gaining democrat votes. If any one believes these… Read more »

“That’s the argument of flexibility and it goes something like this. The Constitution is over 200 years old and societies change. It has to change with society, like a living organism, or it will become brittle and break. But you would have to be an idiot to believe that.”

Well hell once again people forget that the Constitution consists of much more then Gun rights. Just sad that people actually think and have thought America was EVER GREAT!? The only time anyone thought this place was great is when people had “FREE” labor. Pretty sure the other way to word that is “Slavery”. Here we are trying to achieve that again? There are other amendments and they get over looked on the daily. Hell the presidents swear into oath hand on the bible. There is the whole Church and State thing.

Regurgitating hateful rhetoric relative to slavery proves the level of ones intellect – lacking! The North and yes even 95% of the South was opposed to slavery. A civil war was fought during this dark time in our history; so to propose this was only when America was free, via free labor, by all accounts is shameful. Again a liberal attempts to rewrite history to fit a warped ideology.

The civil war was about States rights, not about keeping slavery (which was on its way out). General Lee told the blacks if they joined the souths army, he would free them , many did because they lived there too. Also, history revisionist “forget” the fact that there were white people as slaves too. But thats not “politically correct”. With the modern era coming in, people were going to be needed to work in factories, not on farms. With tractors and farm equipment , one no longer needed 100’s to do field work.

Let’s not forget some more facts about the old days when people owned slaves. First of all, it was black warlords in Africa who captured other blacks from warring tribes, and brought them down to the beach where the Sephardic Jew owned ships were ready to load them aboard. Second, there were many FREE blacks in America, and around 1830 the USA founded the country of LIBERIA in Africa for them to go back to if they wanted. What was the first thing they did when they went to Liberia ? Of course, they took over the place and made… Read more »

No doubt whatsoever there was a political coup in play to topple our form of government; to unseat a duly elected President over fake spurious allegations, while protecting the opposing candidate’s lawlessness whose influence spread deep within the powers of the DC swamp. The question now is, even though their coup failed, will these traitors, these Benedict Arnolds of the 21st Century, be held accountable? Moreover, Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Salwell, Nader and the like, even though they may not have orchestrated the coup, (they were and continue to be), complicit in the scheme by their own conduct and rhetoric.
