The Weaponized Arm of the Blue Dog Democrats of Congress
Lost in the shroud of forgetfulness and hidden among the 241 Congressional Caucuses is the key that unlocks the constant anger and no longer silent rage within the Congress of the United States.
Since the 2016 election and the 2017 inauguration of President Donald J. Trump members of the Congressional Black Caucus began taking aim and focusing a liberal agenda to target the president and his administration. They have charged the media, to incite the public against the Trump administration as the cause of all the woes of this nation. They are wrong. Now let that sink in for a moment.
Much has been happened across the United States and can be directly linked to the Congressional Black Caucus whose members are not shy about standing in front of television cameras and lambast the president.
Upon the 1971 formation of the Congressional Black Caucus its founding member Representative James E. Clyburn (D-SC) made this statement which holds true even today, “Black people have no permanent friends, no permanent enemies…just permanent interests.” Currently Rep. Clyburn is the #2 Ranking member of the Democratic Party.
The CBC from its inception have committed themselves to using the full Constitutional power, statutory authority, and financial resources of the federal government to insure that blacks and other marginalized communities in the United States have the opportunity to achieve the American Dream as they see it. (The CBC agenda as stated on cbc.house.gov). The CBC is mandated in their charter to restrict membership to blacks only and have refused membership to the only non-black representative who challenged them.
We have seen various CBC members taking public stances against President Trump. Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) has yelled the loudest, “Impeach Trump”, and back in 1998, while Chairwoman of the CBC, she called for Fidel Castro of Cuba to protect cop-killer JoAnne Chesimard who fled to Cuba to escape prosecution. I’m glad to see the Congress calling for a censure and the removal of Maxine Waters after her insane plea for liberals to “Harass and intimidate Trump Administration Cabinet Officials”.
CBC member Representative Frederica Wilson (D-FL) tried publicly to humiliate President Trump over the private phone call made to the widow of a Special Operations soldier killed last year in Africa.
CBC member Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) called for the resignation of HLS Secretary Neilson who was harassed by a mob inside a restaurant while dining.
CBC members have touted presenting Articles of Impeachment against President Trump, while leading the effort to remove Confederate and Religious Statues and Monuments from private, public and federal lands citing they are offensive.
The so called “Immigration Crisis” has come to a head because legislators of both the House and Senate have been unwilling to sit down and draft a Comprehensive Immigration Reform plan that would correct various discrepancies in our immigration laws. Those liberal “Blue Dogs” and “CBC” members who yell the loudest about this crisis are the ones most unwilling to step up and do what is necessary.
Yes the emboldening of the Democrat Party has come by way of the Congressional Black Caucus, who has been virtually unopposed in their attempts to dismantle much of the American way of life as we know it. They have become the virtual “weapon” of choice against anyone or anything that threatens their power and control in the Congress. I call upon the Congress of the United States to disband ANY CAUCUS or congressional assembly that threatens the United States of America and its citizens. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
