WE HAVE NEVER HAD AN OFFICIAL
U.S. SENATE PORNOGRAPHER BEFORE
though pornographic behavior is frequently
the entertainment provided to the public by the world's oldest deliberative body.
So Al Franken, the answer to Harry Reid's prayer, should fit right in.
Some of the Democrats can't wait to see what mischief they can do.
"With the Minnesota recount complete,"
Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York said after the Minnesota robbery was completed,
"it is now clear that Al Franken won the election."
Actually, it wasn't clear at all,
but clarity is never valued among thieves.
The Democrats in the Senate were eager to get Al seated quickly,
both for crucial Senate votes coming up
and because once seated among his equals,
a bum is difficult to throw out.
There's honor among the members of our only native criminal class,
similar to the honor among robbers, burglars and other servants of the night.
The difference, and it's only a slight one, is that robbers, burglars and thieves
often hold themselves to higher standards
than members of Congress.
Given their handsome majority in the Senate,
the Democrats shouldn't have trouble confirming Sonia Sotomayor
to the Supreme Court, regardless of whether the senorita is "wiser" than white folks, as she assures us she is, or not quite ready for prime time, as her record on the appeals court suggests.
The first day of hearings on her nomination was the expected partisan patty-cake,
full of the hot air and empty bravado that makes July in Washington such a treat. Democratic senators spoke of her as the incarnation
of John Marshall and Learned Hand, or at least the equal of David Souter.
Republican senators weren't so sure,
but made it clear they have no stomach for making the hearings "a teaching moment." The Constitution is such a bore for so many of our congressional worthies.
Patty-cake or not,
it's nice to have the pornographer's 60th vote at the ready.
Harry Reid will need Sen. Franken's vote first for the global-warming legislation,
only narrowly passed by the House.
The 20-vote margin is nice but cannot necessarily prevent a Republican filibuster, provided the Republicans in the Senate could even find the grit and gumption to mount one.
As many as 15 Democrats are thought to be wary of voting for the cap-and-trade tax, fearing retribution from constituents who are waking up to a monumental scam. They're not at all eager to say "yes, ma'am" and fall in line just because Barbara Boxer of California warns that if the Senate doesn't pass the bill "there will be dire results: droughts, floods, fires, loss of species, damage to agriculture, worsening air pollution and more." It's difficult to imagine what "more" there could be after all those droughts, floods, fires and such. More lady senators like Mzz Boxer, perhaps.
After that, if any of us are still alive, there's the health care legislation to consider. The White House wants a vote in September, and you can understand the hurry. Like the global-warming legislation, the health care plan, whatever its dire details turn out to be, will evaporate under the glare of close examination.
The theft of Norman Coleman's Senate seat was remarkably brazen for the way it was done in broad daylight. The techniques of such thievery are peculiar to the various states. Mary Landrieu stole her seat in Louisiana, but authentic fraud shock is rare in Louisiana, and Huey Long didn't bother to roll to either right or left in his grave. Lyndon Johnson got to the Senate on the strength of a single ballot box in remote Jim Wells County, where he kept going back for more votes until he had the 87 ballots he needed to steal the election from Gov. Coke Stevenson.
But Minnesota imagines itself to be more high minded than Louisiana or Texas, even if the rest of us don't. One member of the Minnesota canvassing board, a state Supreme Court justice, conceded that some ballots were probably counted twice, but he said there was not much anybody could do about it. In more than 25 precincts, officials counted more ballots than actual voters; this was put down to well-meant enthusiasm. If everyone has a duty to vote, who could scold a voter for going above and beyond the call of duty?
Al Franken's vote is not likely to be the margin of victory for any of the schemes now being dreamed up by the Democrats, but the way he got to Washington, and the easy acceptance of fraud, will be remembered as typical of the times, an era whe
n avarice reigned, and the clever swindle was a joke to be played by a clown.
FRANKEN, A CLOWN FOR ALL SEASONS,
ARRIVES IN TIME

BARRY SOETORO aka BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA
He is not eligible to be
President of the United States
because he is not a Natural Born Citizen
as required by Article Two, Section One, Clause Five of the United States Constitution.
This is a fact REGARDLESS of
where he was born (Mombassa, Hawaii, Chicago, Mecca or Mars).
He is not eligible
because he was not born of
BOTH OF WHOM WERE UNITED STATES CITIZENS
at the time of his birth as required by the Constitution.
His father was a subject/ciitizen
of Kenya/Great Britain at the time of his birth and afterwards.
The FACT that he was not born of TWO US CITIZEN PARENTS is all that matters. The question of his birth certificate is a distraction (a distraction fostered by Obama’s supporters?) that ought not to occupy our time and resources.
However, it is possible that he is not a United States
citizen at all even if he was born in Kenya, as three witnesses have testified. The reason is because his mother could not pass her US citizenship on to her son because she did not live continuously in the United States for five full years after her fourteenth birthday as required by the US immigration law in effect during that period of time.
Check it out:
Also, an excellent introductory primer on Obama Presiidential Eligibility is to be found at:
His usurpation can only be corrected (1) by Congress through his Impeachment and Removal [something which will never happen in a Congress controlled by Pelosi/Reid], or (2) it can be
corrected by his resignation, which could happen if the public presssure on him to resign becomes great enough, or (3) by his removal by the United States Supreme Court affirming a Quo Warranto decision of the United States Federal District Court for the District of Columbia [which process Attorney General Eric Holder would never allow to even begin] or (4) by an amendment to the Constitution,
which will never happen because that again would require the agreement of a Congress controlled by Pelosi/Reid.
HERE IS THE QUESTION WHICH EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN SHOULD BE ASKING HIS OR HER CONGRESSMAN AND SENATORS
“During the 2008 election, then Senator Obama published a statement at his website which said that his birth status was ‘governed’ by the British Nationality Act of 1948. Can you please tell me, and the American people, how a person governed - at birth - by British law, can be a natural born citizen of the United States and thus constitutionally eligible to be President of the United States?”
