Excerpt from one of my Jarkesy articles: Are you aware of what your constituents are saying and thinking about this new amnesty bill the senate is trying to foist on We the American people by the Gang of Eight? You know we the people are sick and tired of these lawless gangs in America. And they ARE lawless because they do not uphold the Constitution, the peoples supreme law of the land and frankly we are sick and tired of being lied to by our Reps. When over 70% of the American people are against what Congress and the President are doing and the Congress and President continue down the same path that WE are against. We then have a government that is governing AGAINST the WILL of the American people, i.e. Taxation without Representation.
They should stay in their own country, clean up the corruption in theirs. Fight for the freedoms our ancestors fought for, and we continue to fight for here. When you have a huge influx of people coming to the United States that are used to corruption in there own government, they have an apathy towards the corruption in politics we are trying to clean up in America, it does nothing towards the end of improving America or advancing our freedoms. As those from our southern border have proved they have no interest in assimilating into the American people. They want to bring their faulty ideas and apathy towards government corruption and elect the same type of individuals they were accustomed to in their home countries. It does nothing but hurt those citizens native to this soil, who are least able to withstand the harm, i.e. the poor and middle class. Quit pandering to your special interest groups, your big money donors and do what is right for the American people, instead of doing what you assume to be right, or you try to guilt us into, with regards to those foreign nationals who broke our laws to take advantage of those freedoms, liberties and benefits they, nor their ancestors had any hand in advancing!
If the government didn’t keep letting masses of low skilled illegal aliens cross the border who’ll take any job, then McDonald’s, Farm’s etc would have to pay more for American workers, who the GOP says won’t take the jobs, it would also eliminate the minimum wage argument of Democrats, this would then make the corrupt labor unions obsolete even more so than they are now. Illegal aliens hurt the wages of all American’s, especially the poor and lower middle-class.
We already have a path to citizenship in this country and we already have laws to enforce border security. If you want to pass another bill so that it looks like you are doing something, pass a bill requiring the President and his administration to enforce those laws. We listened to you in 1986 when you mislead, and lied to us about future border enforcement, we are not listening to you now! We DEMAND you listen to U.S. Not the special interest groups, lobbyists, consultants and those already here illegally. If you do not give in to our demands we will do all within our power to replace you with those who will. You have done enough to hurt small business, the American workers, and American citizens, our rights, our privileges and our lives, we are fed up and we will not take it anymore. If the Congress passes ANY bill that gives Amnesty to 11,000,000 Illegal Immigrants I will stand with those who vote to replace ALL incumbents during the next election cycles.
See what George Washington felt on immigration here, https://captainjamesdavis.net/2014/01/24/making-the-foreign-born-familiar-with-the-american-spirit-by-george-s-tilroe/ he would not be happy with the current crop of political leaders in the United States.
Do you know these words? “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” Do you know the import and implication of those same words?
You in government for too long have been governing WITHOUT the consent of the American people. We are sick of the lies, deception and distortion. Any of you who vote to pass this Amnesty bill against the wishes of the American people your political careers will be over. You will still have to face the people who voted for you all these years. It is time you in Congress, our direct representatives start listening to your constituents and quit listening to your consultants and the special interest lobbying groups. Those people ARE NOT the people who voted for you, NOR are they the people you represent!
You in government would do well to get back to the basics of the Constitution and quit subverting it, distorting it, and manipulating it to suit your own ends. https://captainjamesdavis.net/2013/06/21/rules-of-interpreting-the-constitution-by-justice-joseph-story/
Some words of wisdom for you and your colleagues:
“When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle. It is not enough in a situation of trust in the commonwealth, that a man means well to his country; it is not enough that in his single person he never did an evil act, but always voted according to his conscience, and even harangued against every design which he apprehended to be prejudicial to the interests of his country. This innoxious and ineffectual character, that seems formed upon a plan of apology and disculpation, falls miserably short of the mark of public duty. That duty demands and requires, that what is right should not only be made known, but made prevalent; that what is evil should not only be detected, but defeated.” quote Edmund Burke

It seems that We the American people are being played for suckers, you Republicans are at the very least Complacent and Capitulant and more than likely Complicit in the abuse and malfeasance we see so rampant in our government. Either you are in on it all and already know the answers to the questions we have, or you have been keeping your heads in the sand so you don’t have to know anything about it! The Democrats and the GOP are governing against the will of the American people and are complicit in subverting, distorting and dismantling our Constitution and the Rights guaranteed by it!
It is time Congress started doing it’s job of oversight, it’s time you held public hearings to get to the bottom of the abuses by this administration and the departments it heads. We are tired of being told everything is classified, for we all know that the “national security” argument has been completely used and abused so that it means little to us anymore. It’s time you un-classify it, be transparent, and answer to those who you are sworn to represent and uphold the oath of office you took when we gave you the privilege of being our voice in government, too often you have not represented our voice, but have echoed the voices of those who did not elect you and who you are not paid to represent! Congress has the power of subpoena and the power of impeachment, it is time you in Congress grow a spine and use those powers to compel those who have committed these abuses to either testify or go to jail.
We Need A Citizens Committee To Investigate The IRS NOT A Special Prosecutor http://jarkesypolitical.com/2013/05/30/we-need-a-citizens-committee-to-investigate-the-irs-not-a-special-prosecutor/
For Congress to plead incapacity to do anything about the malfeasance & abuse of power by DOJ Holder, IRS Shulman, HHS Sebelius, EPA Jackson etc. It is Congress in the Senate who confirmed them! They are every bit as culpable as those involved at the White House and the administration of the POTUS. The Senate does not HAVE to confirm presidential appointees, We The People are tired of the politics as usual. What has been transpiring for too long in government reminds me of what used to be called “Government by rings” https://captainjamesdavis.net/2013/04/16/the-cost-of-popular-liberty-by-brooks-adams-july-4th-1876/ or “to the victor the spoils” https://captainjamesdavis.net/2013/04/30/the-betrayal-of-we-the-american-people-our-nation-our-birthright/ which has no place in politics, especially in the United States of America.
