Should Some Lawyer-Politicians Be Disbarred?
“Why are so many politicians lawyers? Because law is the best preparation for what a politician will be — despised.”
What recourse do American voters have with elected officials, and especially those who are attorneys, who knowingly pass illegal laws and policies, which violate the Constitution?
California will now offer a third gender option on driver’s licenses and birth certificates for “nonbinary” people who do not identify as male or female under a bill headed to Gov. Jerry Brown.
Senate Bill 179, by LGBTQIA activists state Sens. Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, and Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, passed the Legislature this week, and is illegal. Your birth certificate and California drivers license are legal government documents. And the birth certificate is used to get an international passport.
Sen. Weiner received his law degree from Harvard Law School. Yet this the author’s statement in his bill: “Current law creates onerous and unnecessary barriers for people who wish to apply for a change in gender on their state-issued identity documents,” says in the bill analysis from the Assembly Judiciary Committee. However, the bill analysis also provides current law for the process to legally apply for a name change.
Lawyers, who will sue over this?
The Arrogant Imperial Presidency
Americans lived for eight years under the Imperial President Barack Obama and his lawless administration, blatantly violating the strictures of our founding document. Examples of President Obama violating his Constitutional authority abound, from inventing Labor Law Exemptions, “amending” Obamacare, “recess” appointments made while the Senate was in session, to name just a few. “In its first term, the Administration launched a ‘We Can’t Wait’ initiative, with senior aide Dan Pfeiffer explaining that ‘when Congress won’t act, this president will.’ And earlier this year, President Obama said in announcing his new economic plans that ‘I will not allow gridlock, or inaction, or willful indifference to get in our way,’” Forbes reported in 2013.
“In addition to unlawful or unconstitutional actions, the Obama Administration abused its executive power by asserting broad claims of prosecutorial discretion, abandoning its defense of laws in court, and issuing expansive waivers to existing laws,” the Heritage Foundation wrote. “While some of these actions might not be challengeable in court for technical legal reasons related to the standing of parties to file suit, these actions invoke unreasonable legal positions that were adopted seemingly for partisan political reasons.”
“We can’t wait for an increasingly dysfunctional Congress to do its job. Where they won’t act, I will.”
—President Barack Obama
“Time and again, President Barack Obama signaled his willingness to ‘go it alone,’ acting without congressional approval. Indeed, he has trumpeted this as a virtue of his Administration rather than a vice,” the Heritage Foundation explained. “While it might not be possible to define in all instances precisely when an action crosses the line and falls outside the scope of the President’s statutory or constitutional authority, what follows is a list of unilateral actions taken by the Obama Administration that we think do cross that line.”
California’s Arrogant Imperial Governor
California politicians have been doing much the same, with impunity.
California Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat, signed a bill into law allowing the California Air Resources Board to open a Delaware corporation to hide the millions of dollars they extort from California businesses through the bogus cap and trade “climate change” scheme.
Brown has encouraged illegal aliens to come to California, and continues to sign sanctuary bills allowing them to stay, attend schools, receive scholarships and grants, get professional licenses, and receive welfare and Medi-Cal health care. This list is by no means, complete.
Brown signed a law allowing illegal aliens to receive California drivers licenses, and banned the word “alien” from the state’s labor law. He’s signed a myriad of gun-control laws that are in direct violation of the Second Amendment. He and Democrats legalized marijuana sales and growing, in direct violation of the federal government.
California Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, admitted earlier this year that half of his family is in the country illegally, and are using falsified social security cards and other falsified identification, and are eligible for deportation. De Leon is the President of the California Senate! California State Senator Ricardo Lara, D-Los Angeles, calls himself a “proud anchor baby.” Both of these state senators are flaunting state and federal law. What can be done about this?
And now we have California’s illegal alien-loving attorney general, Xavier Becerra, who handed that fake server over to cops to obstruct their Imran Awan investigation, according to the Daily Caller.
“Becerra’s role is worth noting because he is considered top Democratic talent, a Democratic Party star, with many Democratic leadership positions, including a seat on the House Ways and Means committee, chairmanship of the House Democratic Caucus (now at the center of the Imran Awan secret server scandal) and lately a post as the California state attorney general, where he is leading the state’s effort to stop President Trump from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive order.”
Luke Rosiak, the reporter with The Daily Caller who broke the story, reports, “The secret server was connected to the House Democratic Caucus, an organization chaired by then-Rep. Xavier Becerra. Police informed Becerra that the server was the subject of an investigation and requested a copy of it. Authorities considered the false image they received to be interference in a criminal investigation, the senior official said.”
“Data was also backed up to Dropbox in huge quantities, the official said. Congressional offices are prohibited from using Dropbox, so an unofficial account was used, meaning Awan could have still had access to the data even though he was banned from the congressional network.”
What legal recourse do voters have against lawyer politicians who knowingly violate the law, either through the passage of unconstitutional bills, or through illegal actions and policy? I’m hoping pitchforks and torches aren’t the only way. I’m hoping attorneys reading this have answers.
