Liberal pundits are describing Trump’s recent firing of James Comey with irresponsible phrases such as “hint of fascism” “constitutional crisis” “something a dictator would do” “unprecedented” “illegal” – but is it all hyperbole, crocodile tears, partisan politics?
The Constitution (if you have ever read it) actually, clearly, legally and fully authorizes the President of the United States to fire persons within in the State Department, part of his cabinet, etc. See Article II Section I:
The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.
See also, Article II, Section II, which states:
1: The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.
2: He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.
3: The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.
So liberals spewing their feigned indignation about the firing being unconstitutional is absolute and utter nonsense. They are simply playing politics. The President of the United States was acting upon the recommendation of the newly appointed Assistant Attorney General (the guy who would have to directly deal with the FBI Director on a daily basis). Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was confirmed by a vote of 94-6 in the Senate just two weeks ago, yes 94-6! That means the majority of both Democrats and Republicans held him as a distinctly qualified recommendation by the President. Keep in mind also that Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and a slew of other Democrats all wanted Comey out just a few scant months ago for re-opening the investigation into Hillary Clinton (due to Huma Abedin).
Democrats will have you believe that Trump is acting as a dictator. Where do dictators take advice from not only their Assistant Attorney General but the acting Attorney General to fire someone? They don’t they just act as they wish without advice from anyone. Even if he was going to do it anyway without the recommendation, it doesn’t make him a dictator you idiots. He has the absolute constitutional authority and both sides of the aisle at one point or another wanted Comey out anyway, so all the liberals spreading their false allegations of wrongdoing, illegal actions, demagoguery, unconstitutionality really expose them for what they truly are, sore losers, cry-babies, whiny little partisan cowards.
Side note: Elizabeth Warren apparently knows the reason was due to the Russian investigation – you know the one with absolutely no evidence whatsoever which shows Trump or anyone in his cabinet did anything illegal and which also fails to show Russia had anything to do with our November Presidential election result, of course Democrats will daily tell you they suspect something, and in the case of Warren, she actually knows! Really Elizabeth, you know throwing out an accusation against the President of the United States like that with no evidence to support is actually is a civil wrong, it is called defamation (slander).
The fact of the matter is Democrats are displaying their hypocrisy in full and clear view of the American people and we all notice. They are simply preaching to their sheep and the media is eating it up, spitting it back out, actually working in concert with liberals against Trump, it is more than obvious to anyone with a brain. However I suspect 46 people in the Senate and 188 Representatives are akin to the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz or at least don’t bother to use what God gave them. Remember also last week how Hillary Clinton was blaming Comey for her loss in the election, yes just last week! Democrats all wanted Comey gone and Hillary would have done it on the first day if she had won.
I believe the reason for so much false outrage by the left is because the new FBI Director will inevitably review the information (something Fox News is already talking about) regarding Comey and the decision not to go after Hillary, and others. Remember, under Comey, her staffers were allowed to literally use hammers to destroy evidence with immunity. I would love to see an indictment of Hillary and her cohorts after Comey’s clear error on July 5th. Hillary, watch out dear!
Now let’s remember what happened the last time the mainstream media acted in concert with liberals…Trump Trump Trump!
