No one is above the law. That’s the glorious difference between monarchies and republics. However, in the case of Rep. Bob Etheridge, who assaulted a young college student for asking if he supported Barack Obama’s agenda, Congressman Etheridge has skated free as a bird. In a reply from my Congressman, Rep. Pete Olson, regarding discipline or reprimand of Rep. Etheridge, he stated the following:
“To date, there has been no official action taken by Congress, including a formal reprimand against Congressman Etheridge concerning this incident. ”
He made no mention of any future hearings or actions on this matter.
So we have a ruling class who is immune from the law, can not be questioned about their positions on issues and can “rough up” citizens on the street. Really?
I’m asking you to write your representatives and demand they take action against Etheridge. This must be addressed and teach them all that they are answerable to voters and are not rulers.

Sen. Jon Kyle of Arizona told a group of his constituents that he met privately with Obama about the border and Obama told him that he couldn’t secure the borders. If he did, Republicans would have no reason to pass his immigration reform bill (read that “amnesty and welfare and social security for illegal aliens). That is positively cold-hearted and barbaric. People are dying.
Obama promised the Gov. of Arizona that he would send troops and financial aid to the border of Arizona and Mexico within two weeks. The deadline has come and gone with no word whatsoever from Obama or his staff. Arizona and Gov. Jan Brewer learned that, instead of sending aid, Obama is planning to sue Arizona for its efforts to protect its citizens and defend its border against Mexican invasion. They learned of it from a foreign news cast that was broadcast back on June 8. In this cast, Hillary Clinton states that Obama is suing Arizona. One would expect a president to contact the Governor before June 8 and tell her of his intentions. Not this president. He practices Chicago thuggery in the White House. Not a shred of common decency or consideration. No sign of professionalism.
Common decency would compel him to secure the borders JUST TO STOP THE KILLING AND KIDNAPPING, AND THE SMUGGLING OF DRUGS AND PEOPLE – all devastating to American citizens. Instead, he is refusing to secure the borders, hoping he can use the crime and devastation to force his opponents to succumb to the pressure and pass his “amnesty and welfare for illegals” bill. This is unforgivable and worthy of impeachment. The president swore to uphold the Constitution and protect American citizens and the border. HE IS NOT.
Obama has promised an inadequate number of border agents, ICE officials and money, but has not yet even sent that. His spokespeople do not state the numbers of agents, they use better sounding terms like “doubling the number”. If the number was nine, then doubling would be eighteen, woefully insufficient to make a difference. He promised Gov. Brewer that he would send 1200 agents to the border. Sound good? These will be desk-bound agents. Still sound good? Not so much.
The sooner Chicago leaves the White House, the sooner this country can begin work to regain safety, sovereignty and individual liberties, stolen by despicable power plays of Obama, Pelosi, Reid and all who voted with them. November can’t come soon enough.
Of course, the White House denies this. There were only two people in the room: Obama and Kyle. Who is telling the truth? A simple Google search of Obama’s campaign promises and today’s reality will result in dozens of lies told by Obama to the American people. If he lied dozens of times, what’s one more? I believe Sen. Kyle. The proof is in the pudding. No aid is going to Arizona and the Feds are suing that state.
Arizona Sen. John McCain got a bill passed through the Senate Armed Services Committee for 6,000 troops to be sent to defend the border. However, it has to pass in the full Senate, the House of Representatives and be signed into law by the president.
“It turns out that the approval for 6,000 troops that McCain got through the Senate Armed Services Committee is attached to a larger Senate bill.
According to news reports, McCain’s proposal might be challenged by the administration as an infringement on the authority of the commander-in-chief.”

Some in public office have forgotten that they work for us and are not privileged royalty. They’ve also forgotten that we have a right to question them. These “PC”s (privileged characters, politically correctors, and I say, poor choices, have also forgotten Freedom of Speech. Oh, and they’ve obviously forgotten the assault laws. Call your Congressman and demand that this man be removed from office.
Representative Robert “Bob” Etheridge, Democrat, North Carolina
Someone should file charges of assault against him and the Ethics Committee in Congress should hold a hearing and impeach him. The people of North Carolina should recall him and he should resign.
Imagine if this was a Republican or someone in a Tea party! It would be the leading story all over the main stream media.
You have to wonder why Rep. Etheridge got so riled up when asked if he supported the Obama adminstration. Isn’t he proud to say “yes”? Obviously not. Who can blame him? (for not being proud of Obama’s admin., not his assault on a young college student)Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 4 so far )
