Democrats Have Totally Given Up on Legislation and Legislating

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A half-century-plus of government school victims has rendered We the People collectively, increasingly less and less capable of walking and chewing gum simultaneously.

Let alone understanding our republican government – and how things are actually supposed to work.

For everyone who succumbed to their government indoctrinations – behold an introduction to how our democratic republic is supposed to work.

We have three branches of government – the Legislative, the Executive and the Judicial. Short version:

The Legislative – writes and passes legislation. We elect the legislators – which purports to give us direct say over what laws govern us.

The Executive is headed by the President – whom we also elect. The President signs the legislation – at which point they become laws. The Executive Branch – then executes these laws. No more – and no less. If there is no precedent legislation – regulations from the Executive…are illegal.

The Judicial – exists in no small part to correct this latter point. If the Executive veers outside its lane – the Judicial is supposed to slap it back into its proper place. If the Legislative and Executive team up to write law that violates the Constitution – the Judicial knocks it down. No more – and no less. The Judicial interprets law – it doesn’t write it. If it does – it is outside its lane.

If unelected Executive Branch bureaucrats write law without tethering legislation – we have tyranny. If unelected Judicial Branch jurists write law – we have tyranny.

In case you government school victims are unclear – tyranny is bad:

“(A) rigorous condition imposed by some outside agency or force; an oppressive, harsh, or unjust act : a tyrannical act.”

President Donald Trump – is the anti-tyrant. Not that you’d know that from reading the ridiculous media.

Trump’s Executive actions – have been almost wholly to undo illegal Executive power grabs by his predecessor – Barack Obama. Who was almost inarguably the most tyrannical president we have ever had.

You know who would agree with that assessment? President Obama – pre-2012. In this instance – on immigration reform:

“We are also a nation of laws….And so what we need to do going forward is to address some of the broader problems in our immigration system. And that means changing minds – and changing votes….I know there are some folks who wish I could just bypass Congress. I can’t.”

There were at least twenty-two (22) separate public instances when Obama said something along these lines. He couldn’t bypass Congress. He had to persuade the Legislative – and get its votes.

Except then…Obama bypassed the Legislative. He didn’t change one additional mind, he didn’t get a single additional vote – he just jammed through his view via unilateral Executive action.

Obama to BYPASS Congress AGAIN to Enact Immigration Reform Measures


Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals: “The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was an American immigration policy that allowed some individuals who entered the country as minors, and had either entered or remained in the country illegally, to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and to be eligible for a work permit. As of 2017, approximately 800,000 individuals were enrolled in the program created by DACA. The policy was established by the Obama Administration in June 2012….”

That’s…a whole lot of tyranny. From Obama.

Enter Trump – the anti-tyrant.

Trump Ends DACA but Gives Congress Window to Save It

Well would you look at that. Trump undoing Obama’s tyranny….while asking Congress to go through the actual Constitutional process and write an actual law – replicating legally what Obama imposed tyrannically.

The Democrats – are vociferously opposed to doing things the correct way.

Democrats Threaten Government Shutdown Without DACA Fix

Senate Dems Decry ‘Disgraceful’ Decision To End DACA

New York Democrats Threaten to Sue Trump over DACA Repeal

ANYTHING but do what the Legislative is supposed to do – write legislation.

Trump: Democrats ‘Doing Nothing’ on DACA

So Trump proposed a compromise. Which would permanently, legally almost TRIPLE the number of amnesties – that Obama granted temporarily, tyrannically.

Did THAT render Democrats even remotely interested in legislating?

Immigration Group Obliterates Trump’s DACA Scheme: It’s A ‘White Supremacist Ransom Note’

Of course not. And it ain’t just on immigration.

Each Obama Executive power grab Trump undoes – rightly returning the impetus to the Legislative – is met by Democrats with vitriol and venom, lawsuits and fiats…and a whole host of actions by renegade Deep State Executive and Judicial Branches.

But zero legislation. You know – the one actual Constitutional thing Democrats can do.

To wit: Network Neutrality. No law ever written by any Congress ever – has contained the phrase “Network Neutrality.” Obama power grabbed it into existence. And Trump reverted us to the Constitutional norm.

Democrats – don’t like the Constitutional norm.

(Democrat) Members of Congress Condemn FCC Vote to Kill Net Neutrality

Congressional Republicans have actual Net Neutrality legislation written up and ready to go.

Congress Introduces Legislation To Replace Net Neutrality Rules: “The law will reportedly bar internet service providers from ‘blocking’ or ‘throttling’ web content to consumers….”

In a quintessential example of hope triumphing over experience, Congressional Republicans are optimistic they can reach a bipartisan end to this decade-plus long fight. Legally – Constitutionally.

(Republican Senator John) Thune: Net Neutrality Repeal Threat Could Bring Democrats to Compromise

Except…of course not. Democrats don’t do legislation.

Despite Republican Appeals, Democrats Not Willing to Deal on Net Neutrality Legislation

What Democrats do do – is sue.

Trying to get unelected jurists to unconstitutionally (re)write and (re)impose the illegal “laws” – that Obama unconstitutionally wrote and imposed.

Net Neutrality Supporters Vow Lawsuits in Resistance to FCC Vote

What Democrats do do – is issue more imperial fiats, replicating Obama’s original imperial fiat.

Defying the FCC, New York’s (Democrat) Governor Has Signed an Executive Order on Net Neutrality

Montana (Democrat) Governor Signs Order to Force Net Neutrality

Never mind the fact that a World Wide Web – would seem to prioritize federal action over individual state action on regulating the Internet.

Listen, I would LOVE to see a restoration of Constitutional normal order in Washington, D.C.

Where the three branches of government – do what each is respectively supposed to do.

I would LOVE to see not a single additional power grab by unelected Executive Branch bureaucrats or unelected Judicial Branch jurists – where they impersonate the Legislative Branch.

I would LOVE to see the Legislative Branch return to writing and passing legislation. And then having the President sign it. And then having the Executive Branch execute it – and only it. No more – and no less.

But then – I am not a Democrat.
