Last week, House Democrats found an old relic hiding somewhere in the House of Representatives. They had not used it in so long it was covered in dust. After brushing it off, they started to read. Unfortunately, they still do not know what to do with it.
This document is the Constitution of the United States. Nancy Pelosi attempted to use it during her statements about President Trump’s impeachment, yet she didn’t have a full grasp of it. The House called in some of the most educated professionals in the nation. They claimed they were “scholars” of the document, yet none of them could actually understand the document either.
Even a writer over at the Wall Street Journal picked up on this. Years after the Republicans forced a reading of the Constitution on the House floor, it seems the Democrats are finally interested. Unfortunately, they are only interested in parts of the document. Never mind those parts about freedom of religion or speech, the left is not interested in those. They are only interested in the enforcing parts.
They are only interested in Article 2 Section 4 right now, where it states, “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” They focused on the term bribery after some focus groups to see how that resonated.
Pelosi used this suggestion and a statement by “a founding father” to attempt to prove her point. The statement regarded that a President may use any means necessary to assure his reelection. But, Trump’s efforts were never about reelection, but rather corruption under the Obama administration. The unnamed founding father was William Richardson Davie.
Davie was instrumental in fighting for the very representation that we have in Congress today. He was instrumental in swinging North Carolina’s support behind the Great Compromise, which positioned each state to have equal representation in the Senate with representation based on population in the House. Yet, he was not even worth mentioning by name to Nancy Pelosi. She simply used him as she did her favorite blurbs from the Constitution.
While I would agree with the writer at the WSJ, the Democrats still do not know what to do with the Constitution. While it may seem important here, it continually goes against their plans. For example, the Constitution stands in the way of their wealth tax proposals. So are their executive order gun bans and other proposals. Yet, Democrats are not interested in the reality of the Constitution, only the pieces that they want.
The Democrats are treating the Constitution as if it’s a yogurt bar. You can simply get the flavor and toppings you want as you go through the line. They proceed without evidence or regard for what the Constitution actually says. It’s all in what they want.
