Democrats Attack Bill of Rights to Destroy Political Enemies

Are you a “potential terrorist” on a secret watch list?

Democrats are waging a war on due process, the rule of law, and the principle of legal rights going back to the Magna Carta.

Clause 39 of the Magna Carta issued by John of England in 1215 declares: “No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights or possessions, or outlawed or exiled, or deprived of his standing in any other way, nor will we proceed with force against him, or send others to do so, except by the lawful judgment of his equals or by the law of the land.”

For Democrats in the House and Senate, lawful judgment is no longer relevant. In their zeal to outlaw firearms and demolish the Second Amendment, Democrats and their progressive fellow travelers are striving to dismantle laws and legal proceedings for Americans included on secret lists compiled and held by the state. This represents the very essence of a police state.

“The Democrats demand that Americans be stripped of their Second Amendment rights with no attention paid to the Fifth Amendment, to due process,” writes Kevin Williamson. “They propose that Americans be stripped of their legal protections under the Bill of Rights even when they have not been charged with, much less convicted of, a crime. They propose that this be done on the basis of a series of secret government lists, whose contents, criteria, and keepers are treated as state secrets.”

Exactly! Am I on a "Terrorist watch list"? Are you on a "No fly list"? How would you know? You certainly won't get a letter in the mail about it. Who makes these lists? What is the "Bar" created to make a person "on/ off" these "lists"?

This pile of idiots on the floor need to be scraped up and flushed down the toilet.

Really too bad they got up off the floor. I wish they all would have been swept right on out of the building forever along with all the other trash.

Why is big boned Cummings in all the pictures?

And they've ignored laws and act like they are above them. That's why voters want someone outside the establishment. Let's hope enough people get stirred up to support Trump and convince others to do so to save this country. A Hillary win will be disastrous for America's future.
