DEMOCRAT STUPIDITY

It is that time of year when politically news is slow. There are several incidental items that are in the news that I thought might spark some interest. Each item has its merits as news worthy but not enough to warrant a complete posting. So in random order here they are.

DEMOCRATS AGAINST JOHN DOE PROVISION

Congressional Republicans have introduced what is known as the John Doe provision in the Homeland Security bill that protects individuals who report suspicious activity that could be seen a terrorism related from being sued.

This provision was created because of the six flying Imams who were turned in by passengers in Minnesota because of their actions before boarding and immediately after boarding a flight out of Minneapolis. Their actions included, speaking of 9/11 with reference to Usama Bin Ladin, seating in a similar fashion as the 9/11 attackers, asking for and not needing seat belt extenders which to was an action performed by the 9/11 attackers, just to name a few of their actions.

Now the Imams are suing those who turned them in. While most believe that the case will eventually be thrown out of court each of the defendants will be forced to expend a massive amount of time and money defending themselves.

Homeland Security encourages individuals to report any suspicious activity, but if anyone reporting is in danger of being sued for doing his/her civic duty, obviously reporting will end and one day activity that should have been reported will actually be the real thing.

Citing no reason House Democrats excluded the John Doe provision from the Homeland Security bill even though the amendment passed overwhelmingly 304 - 122 in March. GOP Representative Peter T. King stated , "Democrats are trying to find any technical excuse to keep immunity out of the language of the bill to protect citizens, who in good faith, report suspicious activity to police or law enforcement."

Obviously Democrats are more interested in protecting possible terrorists than United States citizens who feel duty bound to help protect this nation.

DEMOCRATS PUSH SHOW TRIAL - AGAIN

In a never ending attempt by Democrats to accuse, attack and find something illegal in the Bush administration, Democrats are playing before the cameras a proposal to bring contempt charges against former White House legal counsel Harriet Myers and White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten.

The contempt of Congress citation is yet another in a long line of investigation over the firing of 8 federal prosecutors who serve at the discretion of the President and whose job performance was in question by the White House.

The White House has claimed executive privilege concerning the testimony of Myers and Bolten and both have indicated they would testify in private on their knowledge of the firings. But of course that is not enough for Democrats who want a show trial over firings that were not illegal and were well within the authority of the Executive Branch.

This is just another opportunity to play this in the media. The contempt citation has no authority in light of Executive privilege since it is long known that any Presidential advisor must have the freedom to be allowed to give the President honest and straight forward advice without the danger of being cited by Congress during a witch hunt for political reasons.

The public could care less about this show trial and understand that the White House acted within its authority in the firings. But as usual Democrats can't walk away from an opportunity to bash Bush and get their cohorts in the MSM to spill the garbage they create over the airways.

IRAQ GAINING SUPPORT IN THE POLLS

In a recent New York Times/CBS poll, ( how much more liberal can you get), in all categories, Republican, Independents AND Democrats, support for Iraq is rising. In May 35% of respondents said going into Iraq was the right thing to due. In the poll that has risen to 42%. The percentage of those who believe that things are going very bad in Iraq has declined from a high of 45% earlier this month to the current figure of 35%.

So how do Democrats respond to this, in light of their claim that they , "speak for the American people ? " In another attempt to thwart US involvement in Iraq the House today is voting on a bill that will prevent the US from establishing any form of permanent base in Iraq EVEN IF THE IRAQI GOVERNMENT REQUESTS IT !

They are also gearing up once again for a repeat of the withdrawal amendments that are scheduled to start hitting both the Senate and the House floors after the August vacation break which ends with the Labor Day weekend.

Yep, the people are starting to see the truth about Iraq and understanding the necessity of being there, while wising up to the political agenda of Democrats, but still the Dem's follow the same old format and keep spewing the same old false rhetoric. That is a Democrat for you!

Citing no reason House Democrats excluded the John Doe provision...

This is probably because even the most far-left of Dems couldn't come up with any reason that would make an iota of sense, even to themselves. It's politics as usual, pandering to the PC mongers while continuing to obstruct the Republicans' efforts to protect our nation from terrorism.

The omission can benefit no one but terrorists -- The Enemy -- resulting directly in the continued murder of soft targets which, as we've seen, is the Number One specialty of Islam.

I'd add that the Democrats need to decide whose side they're on, but they've already made that more than plain -- it ain't America's.

So let me get this straight - the John Doe clause would allow me to make up false claims against my neighbor and give me complete immunity? I can picture a case where a husband has an affair and a wife makes a false claim that he is a terrorist - she would be immune.

I am not familiar with the legislation, but it certainly sounds pretty stupid. It is just ripe for all kinds of violations that would give the accusers blanket immunity.

As for the contempt charge - Ken, the White House has offered to allow the House to ask questions, behind closed doors, without a transcript, and not under oath. On top of that, the questioning would be limited in time and there could be no chance at any follow up questions. The White House says Congress can take it or leave it. That is not a good faith offer.

Dems are willing to put the questioning behind closed doors, but their witnesses must be under oath and there must be transcripts.

Rob, the John Doe provision does not just give open immunity for examples like you gave.

It deals with security situations such as airports, rail depots etc. Places where terrorist could have an opportunity to strike.

Also the person informing must give a somewhat legitamate complaint such as that brought against the Imams. Not just an angered spuse trying to get the other spouse whacked.

I don't understand how one would know what is and what is not a "somewhat legitimate complaint".

I just flew to Europe a couple of weeks ago. There are a lot of ticked off people in the airports these days - after standing in line for over an hour just to check in my luggage, and then another 45 minutes in a security line. Because the flight was oversold, I had to go to the gate to get my seat assignment. As it worked out, my family and I had to sit apart on the flight. I was a bit irritated with the whole process.

Now, let's say I have already lost my cool because of the lines and then I get bumped and some rude passenger that cut in front of me got on the flight. If I went to airport security and accused that passenger of being a terrorist, you are saying that I would be immune from prosecution?

Sounds like a bad law to me.

Ken, I am perfectly comfortable with Miers, Bolton, and even Rove answering questions behind closed doors (the Dems are also comfortable with that). But, do you believe that Congress should only be allowed to ask questions if they are not under oath and without a transcript? Also, do you believe that Congress should not be allowed to ask follow on questions?

Understanding this basic concept comes with having a grasp of common sense. Something the Dems and their supporters lack.

Are you blatantly trying to mix two mutually exclusive events together?

If someone is actually acting in a suspicious manner, more than likely one passenger would speak first to another or draw attention to the airline staff and it would be witnessed.

I’m more concerned with the airline staff or TSA idiot who ‘writes it off’ as bigotry rather than investigating it.

I fly to europe regularly and have experienced a wide variety of incidents. Over the years, I've developed routines that make the journey as smooth as possible.

Is this your first trip abroad? It can be so stressful when you don't trave frequently. Believe me, this is nothing...have you ever attempted to board an overbooked Ryanair flight?

Airport security, especially in Heathrow, Schipol, Madrid Barajas, Ben Gurion and Orly Sud,would promptly escort you out of the airport to the nearest police station.

This child like antic you described would go nowhere with airport security.

Skye, you are completely missing my point. I gave an example that you did not address.

If someone knowingly makes a false claim about a person and accuses them of being suspicious to the TSA in an airport, they would be immune from prosecution. That is bad law.

Using "common sense" is not the same as applying the law.

Sounds like a perfect, commonsense approach that protects witnesses and stymies the bad guys.

Calling out the two-year old antics you described would just be an added bonus to your travel experience.

Calling out someone who pulled a stunt like this would be fine, but the person who made the false claim would be immune from lawsuits.

You point out that "Airport security, especially in Heathrow, Schipol, Madrid Barajas, Ben Gurion and Orly Sud,would promptly escort you out of the airport to the nearest police station."

That's great, but by what Ken described, in the U.S. this law would grant the accuser who pulled the stunt immunity from prosecution.

That is why it is bad law in my opinion.

Rob, the John Doe provision does not grant immunity from prosecution but protects citizens from being SUED by those who they report.

If a false accusation is made through malice as the many examples that you gave lean toward tha same laws that protect citizens from false charges that are protected under the Constitution apply.

This provision simply portects someone informing authorities of suspicious activity from being sued for doing his/her civic duty.

Hi there! Nice post. Support is rising on Iraq! And the Dems are backtracking on the John Doe provisions.

Keep it up over here!

Rob --

There would be a provision for prosecuting fraudulent accusers, much the same as there is for falsely setting off an alarm that summons the local fire department, that would give people such as you describe pause for thought, and being in the Homeland Security arena would likely make the penalties much more severe.
