'Guilty Until Proven Innocent'

On Monday, we celebrated Constitution Day, the 231st anniversary of the signing of our Constitution at the Philadelphia Convention in 1787. That day also marked the 22nd anniversary of The Patriot Post — the first and thus oldest news digest on the Internet.

Unfortunately, it has been a week when our Constitution and the Liberty it enshrines have been subject to yet another ludicrous assault. This attack came, of course, from Democrat Party leaders, and it went far beyond their usual relentless grind to undermine constitutional Rule of Law and to subordinate it with a so-called “living constitution.”

In my column two weeks ago, “Obstruction of Justice: The Demos’ Kavanaugh Blockade,” I noted, “The left-leaning (to put it kindly) American Bar Association awarded Judge Brett Kavanaugh its highest endorsement, a unanimous ‘Well-Qualified’ rating. According to ABA guidelines, ‘The rating of "Well Qualified” is reserved for those found to merit the Committee’s strongest affirmative endorsement.’“

I wrote further, "This endorsement used to be the gold standard for Democrats considering Republican judicial nominees for the Supreme Court.

So what’s the holdup on Donald Trump’s Kavanaugh nomination to SCOTUS — a nominee who has already been through six intense and exhaustive FBI background investigations associated with high-level judicial and presidential appointments between 1993 to 2018, including congressional hearings for previous federal judicial appointments?”

The answer is obvious:

I am SO glad that I left that mess that is the Democratic party. The things they do and say are in no way what I think, say or do. Looking back, it's been that way for a lot of years and it makes me wonder why I didn't move away from it sooner.

Under the UCMJ, you are "guilty until proven innocent". But that is military law. Now with that said, if the Dems get their way, we could all live under a military-ish style of government with jackboot thugs running around controlling every aspect of our lives.

I'm not saying that this is the way the military treats you, especially outside of Basic Training. So for those who don't know how to read between the lines, please call a friend for help before berating me. Former MP here so I don't want to hear your drivel.

I agree...we allow the left, and persons like
Little Mikey Lewis and his armed gang,

to convict you of any boogie charge, and you need to prove your innocence in court.

time to fire those who ignore our Constitution
