Since we all know just what we are talking about, here is the Senate’s Oath of Office:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”
If Senator Schumer or Speaker Pelosi wants to protest their oath, he or she can resign.
There are two distinct issues in this whole scenario: one is the wall and securing the border; and two is the status of Government in this partial shutdown mode.
But Pelosi and Schumer only recognize one as a problem, the government shutdown. Now what is extremely ironic is that they only care about opening government when the first basic, functional duty of that Government is to secure our borders and protect citizens.
Secondly that they took an oath — “freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion“– to “ defend the Constitution… against all enemies, foreign and domestic” The Constitution puts that central tenant of Government on protecting its borders, from invasion, as a priority function of their duties.
Now they don’t want to do that. They want to stand in the state of resistance, which is actually the state of Sedition. But that resistance is against the government of the US. Whether their base has lulled them into that position makes no difference. That is where they all stand. It comes down to either honoring their oath to defend the country or not. Their open-borders base does not want to defend the Constitution and makes no bones about their position of opposition to the administration and duly elected president.
So, by their own efforts, they are in a current state of sedition. That is what it is.
Thus Speaker Pelosi and Senator Schumer are aiding and abetting the enemy. They are also giving comfort to the broader enemies and invaders of the US, generally.
I found it fascinating how yesterday Nancy Pelosi was made Speaker and then swore in all the Dems by their oath. The skunk in the room was Democrats’ obvious ongoing state of protest with Trump, the administration and our national border security. Yet they stood their claiming to take that oath “without mental reservations.” Which one is it?
Are they proud card-carrying members of the Seditious, resistance Left or are they authentic members of the US Government — with no “purpose of evasion?” It does make sense though that the very first thing Nancy Pelosi would do as Speaker of the House is to defy her oath of office.(and then lead others) I mean it is what radicals do.
They either stand with the Sedition and their radicalized open-border, anti-American base of subversive miscreants… or honor their official sworn oath. But they cannot do both.
They did not take an oath to only make talking points and lies about some fictional “border security” illusion that lives only in their minds. And “technology” does not physically slow down invaders. How many invaders did their talking points repel? Actually, it undoubtedly encourages them. So, what is it about no “mental reservations” they do not understand?
God Bless America because the Left sure won’t.
Hey hey, ho ho… time to build the wall, ho ho!
