In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Sheila Jackson Lee: We’ll Send Obama Executive Orders

W w w w w w wait a second here. This isn’t what I learned in fifth grade.

The leftists on the new House Democratic “Full Employment Caucus” are planning to “draft” executive orders for President Obama to sign, according to Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas.


Because the Caucus, you see, “will be answering the call of all of America,” according to SJL. So now we apparently have a Dictatorship of the Proletariat right here in the United States.

Here’s what she said:

We will be answering the call of all of America because people need work and we’re not doing right by them by creating work. And I believe this caucus will put us on the right path and we’ll give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength.

In fact, I think that should be our number one agenda. Let’s write up these executive orders — draft them, of course — and ask the president to stand with us on full employment.

I mean, it says it right there in the Constitution – Article VIII, Section 2:

In case of high unemployment, the House of Representatives shall establish a Full Employment Caucus which shall be empowered to approve laws and send them directly to the president. The president shall be empowered to sign these laws with pride and strength.

During times of especially high unemployment, members of the Full Employment Caucus will also be permitted to cut in line in the House cafeteria.

The Federalist Papers show that the Founders considered giving the Full Employment Caucus the power to declare war, but ultimately left this with Congress.

    1. like Victoria responded I am stunned that people able to get paid $8083 in 1 month on the internet . you could check here… F­­B­3­9­.­ℭ­O­M

  1. There are two people who can really get my dander up every time they open their mouths and words come out. I do not refer to the words that leave their mouths as “speech” because that would require a brain.

  2. So, can those of us in flyover country claim taxation without representation now? If a republican is elected to congress, does it make a sound?

  3. While I was trying to absorb what I just read, and think of a nice comment. I pulled up who were the members of the Full Employment Caucus. I did not see a list of membrs part of this.
    Can anyone tell me exactly who is part of this group besides Jackson?

    1. Today, in response to the ongoing jobs crisis in America, Representatives John Conyers, Jr. (D-Mich.), Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), José Serrano (D-N.Y.), and Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) announced the creation of a Congressional Full Employment Caucus.

        1. I don’t think they’re all idiots. They follow an ideology that is, for the most part, ignorant of human nature and how things really work.

    2. From Conyers website:
      Today, in response to the ongoing jobs crisis in America, Representatives John Conyers, Jr. (D-Mich.), Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), José Serrano (D-N.Y.), and Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) announced the creation of a Congressional Full Employment Caucus.
      All Dems. Imagine that. Creating unity and …. oh, no it isn’t.

  4. This is a COUP! This must be stopped before it causes a constitutional crisis the likes we have never seen.

    This could cause civil disruption.

      1. I know that this year my taxes will be the lowest in my life because there is no way i am funding this government any longer.
        I will take the Geithner way.

  5. I am pleading with the Republican Congressman. Please put your foot down. The list is getting longer. You are being trambled on. Stand up and do something for the American Citizens.
    Blind Sheep……………………………….

  6. What an interesting plan; EOs that allow Congress to do right by all of America. Full employment at the stroke of a pen and no one thought of this tactic until now. Amazing. MsLee is a genius!

    1. These idiots think employee people in public sector jobs and then taxing their income is revenue for the government. They don’t realize that if they pay them 1000$ then tax them 350$ that it is an expense of 650$. They actually beleive they made 350$. These idiots don’t understand basic economics.

  7. Wow, Stupid,Ignorance and Arrogance make a very dangerous Representative…………

    I am surprised she has not called for action against NASA because Mar’s Rover can’t find the Apollo 11 landing site.

    At this point, I wonder if the Constitution is breathing it’s last breath.

      1. Thanks for correcting me. Maybe they will take a clue from Venezuela and establish a Department similar to a new one Venezuela created…..Vice Ministry for the Supreme Social Happiness of the People.

  8. Under normal circumstances, I would assure you all that Sheila Jackson Lee is a blithering ignoramus who believes Vietnam is still two separate countries, that the Mars Rover would locate the American flag planted by Neil Armstrong, and that she is a freed slave. Unfortunately, these are not normal circumstances.

    “War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.”

  9. And these two idiots, SJ Lee and Maxine Waters keep getting elected! I’ve always believed, California and Vermont need to be sold to the highest bidder. That’s right Vermont as well, because it won’t be long before the socialist B. Sanders declares that this is a great idea, laws by decree…

      1. She is from a district that has been gerrymandered for blacks. Texas redistricting has been under the thumb of the federal leviathan since LBJ took vengeance against the state in the Voting Rights Act of 1964. The first black representative from District 18 was the great civil rights leader, Barbara Jordan. How far District 18 has fallen under the carpetbagger from Queens, Sheila Jackson Lee.

  10. Plus so-called EOs done by Congress are called House Resolutions, Senate Resolutions, or Joint Resolutions and cover things that would be nice but are not required by law. This is achingly dumb.

  11. Please, someone slap me and wake me up. I keep having the same nightmare over and over. In it, idiots are taking over the country. The constitution is being ignored and no one finds anything wrong with that. It’s a terrible nightmare. Oh… wait….

      1. I didn’t have that one. I had the one where I could not find the classroom to take the exam. Kind of the same panic I feel everytime I read about the ideas of these out-of-touch politicians!

  12. If you listen to what she said, I think she let a Freudian slip escape. She stated talking about the American people, “We’re not doing right by them by creating work.”

    Granted, the government cannot create jobs (although it does create work with all of its regulations), but it is the liberal mindset that the government can. So if you extrapolate out her comment, the Dems are not doing right by their constituents by creating jobs, thus the need to keep jobs growth to a minimum and keep the lemmings (or sheep is you prefer) fat and happy on the government teat.

        1. Ditto Star and hope the future is brighter Shofar.

          To your comment, spot on. Take the opposite of any liberal /progressive program name and you have the results. Full Employment? More like no employment. Come to think of it, if we start with HER, I”m all for it.

  13. Oh my gosh! This crazy woman from, as a Texan I’m embarrassed to say, Houston is getting crazier and crazier. It will be interesting to hear what she has to say when after 2016 we have a Republican president. Would the “caucus” want to follow that route with him? I guess we are really in the silly season. She’s always good for a laugh but I wish some other state could claim her.

  14. What a disappoint Sheila Jackson is–after spending years in Washington she has no basic knowledge of how our country works.
    To hear her speak of writing up Executive Orders (drafting them) for the President to sign is just one more indication of her ignorance or purposeful disregard for the Constitution and rules of law. She speaks neither for me nor anyone who truly loves this country. I suggest she spend whatever time she has left in Washington to do the job she is getting paid to do and honoring the pledge she made upon her swearing in. You are a complete and utter disappointment to all who expect better of you.

  15. Are you people in Washington going Mad? How can the employment Caucus by-pass out constitution. Only Congress shall have the right to pass law. Where are we living now in a Banana Republic. This woman should be send to live in Central Africa, where she can do whatever she wants.

    In this country we must follow the Law of the land.
    I urge the President no to sign such a nonsensical approach. By passing the congress is dangerous and against all Laws.

    1. Congress has bypassed the Constitution for decades. How do you think the president has so much power? And how do you think the federal government has gotten its nose into every single part of our lives?

  16. I am sure many of you have heard this quote before ” it is better for the world to think you are stupid, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.”
    I think in the case of Sheila Lee this quote applies.

    PS Don’t you agree !!!!

  17. I give up there’s no hope for America.
    It’s sad that one person or a few persons can’t speak for over 300 million people
    That is dictatorship.
    I have given up
    I see no hope for America
    America is gone
    America is gone
    All that remains is America’s funeral

  18. But wait, didn’t The Lyin’ King just brag about unemployment supposedly be down in his SOTU address…she must have missed it…or perhaps she is like anyone who knows the # went down because a lot of people are out of unemployment benefits & are now on welfare (no longer even looking for a JOB)…YA JUST CAN’T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS Ms Jackson!

  19. Did anyone besides me,see that the folks on that employment caucau are all of the darker persuasion???what a bunch of low life dirtbags,and the folks that work for lee say,every other word out of her mouth is calling her hired help MOTHER F – – – – – S,,she should have her mouth washed out with LYSOL !!!

    1. “Did anyone besides me,see that the folks on that employment caucau are all of the darker persuasion??”

      And, your point is?

      BTW, Serrano and Quiggley are Caucasians.

  21. Shelia Jackson Lee and Wendy Davis?
    Texas, where did you find them?
    Please, take SJL back and do whatever you must…..hanging, shooting, electrocution…whatever the punishment Texas deems fit!

  22. That idiot ha already issued hundreds of “Executive Order” to which he is not entitled ! Why in the world would you give him even more of the same? That kind of reasoning is why our country is in the such a disastrous condition . What else can you expect from such a Congress with this kind of mindset?!

  23. Is SJL stupid? There is no article VIII Section 2 of the US Constitution! That means she is talking about the TX state Constitution—she better get reading because that article VIII section 2 has to do with Tx Taxation and Revenue not employment and employment has nothing to do with that article. OMG she is one stupid bimbo.

    So she is another one on the list of impeachement, she is deliberately going against the Constitution—oh but wait, she must think since her dictator says he will do it, she can now speak for him and push for EOs.

  24. I thought we had low unemployment at this time. The “government figures” say we are only at about 7.2%! and now they are trying to enact a plan of dictatorship here it looks like. sounds tribal to me.

  25. I would suggest to Mrs. Lee that she try to pass the full employment mandate before they raise the minimum wage to $10.10. Crazy dumb-asses! I see robot hamburger flippers in the future.

  26. Sheila Jackson Lee – a typical VICTIM of Affirmative Action. Obviously failed American History, but got passed anyway. Just another dirt-common socialist idiot railing against “the system” with no idea of how it is supposed to work – and no concept of liberty or what you are supposed to do with it.

  27. Ever notice how Dems/Libs and Muslims all answer questions the same way? They talk & talk saying nothing but are sure to keep you out of the conversation. They don’t want you to bring common sense into the picture. They just blather on and on with their lies and double talk. They want to bring you to a place of giving up on a real answer. So weary of their childish games. You don’t expect an adult to behave like this (a child 2 to 12).
    And to top it off they believe we are so stupid we don’t know what they have planned is against our Constitution and Laws of the Land. They like to hoodwink us. But then doubt they know what the Constitution says. I am in awe sometimes at the ignorant remarks that come out of the mouth of Libs. How do thy get elected?!!!

  28. Come on folks. All 83 of you that have submitted a comment prior to me haven’t taken the time to look at the Constitution. There are ONLY 7 Articles to the constitution, not 8. Do your due diligence, read and expand your knowledge base.

    This crackpot from the Houston area is just that, a crackpot.

  30. Rep. Jackson’s unemployment chart is a joke as if one can make big bucks in the drug business why would anyone even think of working for a living ?
