Oh boy..


I think there should be a mandatory “US Constitution 101” refresher course for career Congress critters..

Article II, Section 2 states:

He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.

I don’t think Chuck understands the Constitution.  When Obama made his declaration that if Congress didn’t act, he had a phone and pen, Schumer gave his consent for Obama’s new legislative powers by standing and clapping.

For Obama, he was willing to share his constitutional duties.  Today, he wants to re-write the Constitution.  How do you think he’d do on his test?

  1. Trump should make use of that adjournment power occasional!y, just to troll them. “Yeah, Congress is adjourned from 9a.m. Monday to 9p.m. Friday, every week.”

    • There is something to be said for a mandatory adjournment long enough to get recess appointments shoved through. IIRC that’s about 5 days; the Senate has been holding “pro-forma” sessions for years to keep Obama from doing recess appointments; they have kept it up under Trump.

      If he did this right now, they’d be in until January. If he does it after the next Congress convenes, well, they’re in for the rest of his first (?) term.

  2. I think there should be a mandatory Constitutional examination that every prospective candidate (including incumbents) for the Presidency, the House and the Senate should have to pass with a score of 95% or better before having their names placed on a ballot.

    I also think that rhetoric like Schumer’s, which demonstrates such ignorance of the Constitution, should be grounds for immediate and permanent expulsion.

    • It is NOT ignorance – they know the rules. They are just grandstanding and mudslinging, and hoping to pressure Trump into doing something they want that he doesn’t have to do. And that is even worse, in my book.
