As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Black Caucus Members Storm Senate Floor to Protest Sessions

This is now how Congress argues issues. Via “protest,” instead of engaging in a debate.

House lawmakers led by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, and other Congressional Black Caucus members staged a protest against Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions’ nomination to attorney general on the Senate floor Wednesday, the Washington Examiner reported.

The group of roughly 10 House members, including the dean of the House, Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., as well as Democratic Reps. Lacy Clay of Missouri, Hank Johnson of Georgia and Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut, traveled to the Senate side of the Capitol and marched onto the floor in an effort to draw attention to their opposition to Sessions’ confirmation on civil rights grounds.

“Sen. Sessions may be one of the most incompatible nominees to the Department of Justice that we’ve seen in decades – that department is a department of the vulnerable,” Jackson Lee told the Washington Examiner after leaving the Senate floor.

  1. There should be a penalty flag when members of Congress violate house or senate rules.

    For every violation, they are hit with a debit to their re election war chest of 5%, maybe 10% for second offenses, etc.

    The only thing these people really care about is themselves and their fortune… hit ’em where it hurts, and that applies to both sides.

    They need to sit in the financial time out chair.

    • These people do this stuff all the time, they do no work, just hang around waiting to pounce on someone that has never done them harm. They are actually peeping toms, looking in windows, etc. They love to do this stuff, an excuse to do no work for their lazy asses. Nobody pays any mind to them. I say again, the cops should arrest them for harassment and peeping into peoples’ homes. Low I.Q. crowd these socialiists/communists. They hate it here and Trump should throw them out of the U.S. too, he has the authority. Go Trump, fix thse MFs.

  2. I’m drowning…somebody save me…Hank Johnson makes Sheila Jackson lee look sane…that man does not represent Georgia…. I realize there are much bigger issues than my state…such as the 9th circuit overruling our President…they are stalling on the temporary ban for Muslims….have they been called out?

  3. So the members of the Democrat Socialists of Congress are at it again. George Soros must be happy and proud to see his puppets respond so quickly to his orders.

    • They’d have to call it “breach of the peace,” because otherwise, well, there’s a slight complication:

      “The Senators and Representatives shall receive a Compensation for their Services, to be ascertained by Law, and paid out of the Treasury of the United States. They shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place.”
      Article I, Section 6.

  4. Every single one of these people are registered members of the Democrat Socialist Party of America, which is linked to all the international branches.

    Perhaps they should go and represent themselves there.

  5. And we wonder why there is violent protest in the real world? or did these idiots learn their tactics from the rioters in Berkeley or DC or NYC?

    • Most of the “Black Caucus” in Congress are members of the Democrat Socialists of America party, which is an affiliate of the worldwide Socialist Internationale political party. Both Grace and I have posted articles about the Democrat Socialists in Congress, the Congressional membership list, their political philosophy, their affiliation with other Socialist groups, etc.

      There are many articles about the Socialist Democrats of America and their membership in Congress, and here’s one that pretty much summarizes what they are all about. None of this is much of a secret, but the corporate media will not expose the situation, likely because many members of the press are also members of the Democrat Socialists of America.
