Matt Gaetz demands end to impeach inquiry

Matt Gaetz
The conservative Florida lawmaker says Republicans will “fight for Donald Trump.”

U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz is demanding an end to the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

The conservative Florida lawmaker told a crowd of dozens outside of Democratic U.S. Rep. Donna Shalala’s Miami-area office that Republicans will “fight for Donald Trump” and do all that they can to prevent impeachment.

Gaetz criticized Shalala, calling her and several other Florida House Democrats who have supported moving forward with the inquiry hypocritical. He says they’re so caught up in investigations and impeachment that they’ve forgotten about their constituents.

The showing is part of a multimillion-dollar Republican National Committee-sponsored campaign designed to rally public support against the possible impeachment of the president.

Shalala’s staffers say the congresswoman wasn’t at her office at the time of rally.

    Dear Citizens ~

    The President is the #1 elected official under the Constitution. In cases of Insurrection whether by U.S. Supreme Court, Congressional House Members, Senate Members engaging in Coup d etat against the SOCIAL CONTRACT (Constitution) can be ARRESTED!

    Indeed. The President can remove Federal agencies and totally abolish them if they no longer serve the President (aka the people) in good faith. The President can suspend POSSE COMITATUS and Habeas Corpus at anytime during acts of Sedition against the Social Contract.

    Furthermore to all these Communists in America “YOU TIME IS LIMITED!” Yes. Foreas it is ILLEGAL to be a COMMUNIST in the United States! One can be arrested, assets seized, interrogated and if given citizenship thru Immigration one will lose citizenship! YES! YES! YES!

    Moreover understand that “Democratic-Socialism” is Menshevik Communism by definition and one ought study true law and American history by Furlong or read “The Law” by Frederic Bastiat, “The Naked Communist” by FBI Agent Cleon Skousen or go to and listen to their audio book xalled “THE SPECTER OF COMMUNISM!”

    Dear Citizen ~

    Let ne educate you on more law. Under the 1965 Immigration Act the President can suspend all Immigration if needed for an unspecified computation of time if a threat to national security arises! Well, 1 million illegals costing U.S. Treasury 200 Billion physical year 2019 a threat? Yes. I bet there’s plenty of Communities in Florida that could use some of that 200 billion, don’t you?

    Aforementioned the decision by the President on Immigration is BEYOND JUDICIAL REVIEW and that was written by Congress! The President gives instructions to U.S. Attorney General and the U.S. Attorney General orders Homeland Security and they enforce it.

    Yes. This means way, way, way too many Federal Judges are acting in “BAD FAITH” so if you don’t understand how the Social Contract regulates Judges allow me to explain.

    1. Judges cannot be sued for malfeasance whilst on the bench.

    2. Judges can be defrocked for malfeasance on the bench.

    3. Judges can be arrested for malfeasance on the bench (Constitutional Dishonor) whether by creatures of statute (Governmentagents) or by the people.

    Moreover the United States Senate Judiciary’s # 1 charter is to discipline and fire (defrock) bad judges by bringing their names up for a 2/3rds vote in the Senate.

    Have they defrocked any of these “revisionist Communist” Federal Judges? No! No! No! This is why CIVICS is NOT taught in Communist Public Educational system! As the Communists would say “useful idiots!”

    “The impeachment power belongs to the House. It applies in situations where there is reason to believe the president has committed “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” The founders drafted the impeachment clause to cover a wide range of abuses of power, including ones where there is no violation of criminal law. If Trump withheld aid from Ukraine in an attempt to pressure them into investigating a political opponent, he likely both violated the Constitution and committed a crime.”- Ilya Somin, law professor, George Mason University
