More Proof That Conservatives Hate Our Constitution

by Ben Hoffman

burning constitution.jpgDozens of GOP bills have been ruled unConstitutional in just the past few years. Donald Trump has been in continuous violation of our Constitution since the moment he took office.

Article I, Section IX of the Constitution forbids the president from receiving a “present” or “emolument … of any kind whatever” from a foreign state. It was meant to limit influence by foreign entities.

Trump hasn’t removed himself from his business empire, which every president before has done. He profiting from his position as president. The latest example is the trademarks that had been pending pending in China for years but were approved last week. How convenient.

Trump is stealing business from other domestic hotels and restaurant in exchange for favors from other countries.

The Constitution says that emoluments from foreign governments may not be received “without the consent of the Congress.” Because Congress has not given its approval for the money flowing into the president’s business interests, he is in violation of the Constitution.

Trump is being sued for violating the Constitution, but he claims that he is above the law and can’t be sued.

What to do about it? Spit in the face of a Trump supporter.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Arkansas’ highest court on Wednesday struck down a state law that requires voters to show photo identification before casting a ballot, ruling the requirement unconstitutional just days before early voting begins for the Nov. 4 election.
In a decision that could have major implications in the state’s election, the Supreme Court upheld a lower court ruling that determined the law unconstitutionally added a requirement for voting.

Judge finds right-wingers unfit to vote

by Ben Hoffman

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A federal judge ruled Wednesday that right-wingers are not mentally competent to vote, affirming accusations of sane people around the country.

The ruling by Judge Harry A. Jefferson of Federal District Court dramatically changes the political landscape in America.

Before the judge’s decision, right-wingers disrupted the hearing with outbursts about socialism, communism, and fascism that seemed to have no contextual relevance. It was found that most of them didn’t know what those words meant. That prompted deputy marshals to order the right-wingers out of the courtroom. Several complained that their First Ammendment Rights were being violated.

It remains possible, legal experts said, that prohibiting right-wingers from voting could have Constitutional issues. “Our goal has always been and always will be allow all sane people to vote,” said Benny K. Mount, a United States attorney, speaking to reporters outside the courthouse. “Allowing insane right-wingers the right to vote, however, is not what our founding fathers had in mind for our country.”

Right-wingers looked haggard and confused after the decision. “The judge is obviously a Marxist,” commented one. “Sarah Palin will save us. She’s really smart,” remarked another. “Where is the Denny’s,” asked another.
