ELDER PATRIOT – Who is the Democratic congressman that is spearheading the boycott of Donald Trump’s inauguration that has now grown to include 47 Congressional Democrats?

John Lewis represents the Georgia’s 5th Congressional District.  He was just elected to his 16th term in congress. 

Congressman Lewis would like us to believe that he is so disgusted by the “rhetoric” of Donald Trump that he is left with no option to but to boycott Trump’s inauguration.  Is that really the case or does he just want to delegitimize anyone who doesn’t walk in lockstep with his personal ambitions?

This isn’t the first time Lewis has boycotted an inauguration.  In fact, Lewis hasn’t attended the inauguration of a Republican president since he was a congressional newbie in 1988.  Such petulance doesn’t deserve respect it deserves further scrutiny.

It seems Lewis was hand picked for the job as race-baiter in chief by his Democratic colleagues.  You see, Lewis gained fame and launched his political career by riding a bus over years ago.  Lewis was arrested and had his head cracked open by an Alabama state trooper for participating in the protest against segregated facilities that the Supreme Court had ruled to be illegal.

It was an act of bravery that Democrats will not let us forget 56 years later.  Somehow that qualifies him for sainthood and justifies everything he’s done since.  Oh, if the same respect were given to the returning American forces who walked into a massacre at D-Day or any of the other theaters in WWII that were at least as difficult as Lewis’ bus ride.

So now Lewis is showing the incoming president utter disrespect even though there is more in Trump’s past to commend his treatment of Blacks than there is in Lewis’ past. 

Lewis’ job is not dissimilar to those that Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson fill for the Democratic Party, keep Blacks on their urban plantations and deliver their votes.  Personally empowering Blacks would threaten the Dems’ grip on those communities.

When it comes to broad innovative ideas to help Blacks, Lewis has consistently come up empty preferring to maintain the status quo and maintain his Oreo status among the Democrats’ power elite.

By contrast, real leadership is being exhibited by ex-NFL star Jim Brown, talk show host Steve Harvey, as well as Martin Luther King III who have met with Donald Trump and are prepared to counsel him and work with him as Trump efforts to improve conditions in their communities through empowerment and not handouts.

They agree with Trump’s desire to empower Blacks that would result in their joining the mainstream of American society rather than continuing the same treatment at the hands of Democratic governance that has left them a growing dependent class forced to hold on to a separate political ideology for the purpose of simply surviving.

Lewis and his Democrat colleagues are sending a loud message that they are resolved to oppose Trump’s agenda directed at helping Black empowerment.

Trump’s election is exposing the vulnerabilities of the establishment primarily because of the deliberate failures of its policies.  The swamp is beginning to drain itself.

HERE IS A LIST OF EVERY SINGLE TIME OBAMA COMMITTED AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE THAT DEMS & MEDIA COVERED UP “Impeach!” It’s been more than eight years since Democrats uttered that word – long enough for anyone to wonder if it was still in their vocabulary, considering the deafening silence through the dozens of serious scandals during President Obama’s administration – but now that President Trump is the man in the White House, it’s back with a vengeance. Democrats everywhere are wildly slinging the “I” word, hoping to nail Trump for high crimes and misdemeanors after the New York Times claimed a memo written by former FBI Director James Comey said the president urged him to end the federal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Some members of Congress are getting in on the action. They include Reps. Maxine Water, D-Calif., and Al Green, D-Texas. Even a Republican, Rep. Justin Amash, claimed Wednesday there are grounds to impeach President Trump. House Oversign Committee Chair Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, asked for the alleged Comey memo and other documents. Chaffetz tweeted that he is prepared to subpoena the information. And Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., invoked “Watergate.” Now the Democratic Party is reportedly poll testing impeachment as a 2018 election issue. More than 1 million people signed a petition calling on Congress to impeach Trump. Wasting no time Wednesday, the mainstream media sprang into action, enthusiastically echoing the left’s impeachment calls. MSNBC launched a Watergate ad implying Trump is America’s new Richard Nixon. “Watergate. We know its name because there were reporters who never stopped asking questions,” says MSNBC host Chris Hayes, who hinted that Trump is next on the impeachment chopping block. “Now, who knows where the questions will take us. But I know this: I’m not going to stop asking them.” Meanwhile, some overzealous members of the left plastered fliers around Washington, D.C., demanding all White House staffers resign Wednesday. The posters read: “If you work for this White House you are complicit in hate-mongering, lies, corrupt taking of Americans’ tax money via self-dealing and emoluments, and quite possibly federal crimes and treason. Also, any wars will be on your soul. … Resign now.” But constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley, who voted for President Obama, warned “impeachment” enthusiasts not to get ahead of themselves with President Trump. Why? At this time, there’s no evidence Trump actually committed a crime. “The criminal code demands more than what Comey reportedly describes in his memo,” Turley wrote in a May 17 opinion piece posted at the Hill. Turley explained: For the first time, the Comey memo pushes the litany of controversies surrounding Trump into the scope of the United States criminal code. However, if this is food for obstruction of justice, it is still an awfully thin soup. Some commentators seem to be alleging criminal conduct in office or calling for impeachment before Trump completed the words of his inaugural oath of office. Not surprising, within minutes of the New York Times report, the response was a chorus of breathless “gotcha” announcements. But this memo is neither the Pentagon Papers nor the Watergate tapes. Indeed, it raises as many questions for Comey as it does Trump in terms of the alleged underlying conduct. A good place to start would be with the federal law, specifically 18 U.S.C. 1503. The criminal code demands more than what Comey reportedly describes in his memo. There are dozens of different variations of obstruction charges ranging from threatening witnesses to influencing jurors. None would fit this case. That leaves the omnibus provision on attempts to interfere with the “due administration of justice.” However, that still leaves the need to show that the effort was to influence “corruptly” when Trump could say that he did little but express concern for a longtime associate. The term “corruptly” is actually defined differently under the various obstruction provisions, but it often involves a showing that someone acted “with the intent to secure an unlawful benefit for oneself or another.” Encouraging leniency or advocating for an associate is improper but not necessarily seeking an unlawful benefit for him. .
