Sheila Jackson Lee Suggests Martial Law to End Government Shutdown


Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), who has been rumored as being considered to replace Janet Napolitano to head the Department of Homeland Security, used some very strange language earlier this week to characterize a sentiment for a clean resolution to end the government shutdown. She labeled it a form of “martial law.”

Yes, we have heard Ms. Lee say some whimsical and ridiculous things in her time in office, which I’m sure embarrass her fellow Texans, but this has to be one of the most ridiculous ones to date.

She pushed that the measure was bi-partisan, including Democrats and Republicans.

sheila-jackson-lee“It’s something called a continuing resolution, but it’s a bill that you put on the floor that has been passed already by Republicans and Democrats in the United States Senate….that we could vote on today,” Lee said.

“We have martial law — what that means — and my colleagues know what it means — is that you can put a bill on in just minutes,” she added.

What in the world does martial law have to do with a government spending bill? Is this implying that Congress can just willy nilly pass a law to do whatever they like, in any manner they like, constitutional or unconstitutional? I think Ms. Jackson better check her 6 if that is the case. I see truckers and vets coming to town who would disagree with her.

Darla Dawald writes:

The term “martial law” in a legislative context is somewhat obscure but it has been used before to define lawmakers’ ability to “fast track” bills without going through the usual congressional process.

However, Lee’s insistence that a Senate-approved resolution to fund the federal government be fast-tracked via “martial law” appears to conflict with Article I, Section 7, Clause I of the Constitution, which states, “All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives.”

This clause was included by the founders to ensure that decisions related to the power of the purse reside with the legislative body which is closest to the American people.

The last time martial law was mentioned by a member of Congress was back in 2008 when Rep. Brad Sherman revealed how lawmakers were threatened with “martial law in America” by then Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson if they rejected the TARP bailout package.

So I was right. As Darla points out, it is a means of dismissing the Constitutional process and the law in order to push whatever Congress wants, whether it is lawful or not. Sheila Jackson Lee is among the most lawless witches in Congress. She is among many socialists and communists on the House Oversight committee in the House of Representatives, and she is more than in favor of grabbing your guns and stealing your right to own them. Why should this surprise us that she would use such terminology? I’ll let the reader decide, but I have my own theories.

Beware, Ms. Jackson may have given a signal about what the Communists and socialists in the House, along with their comrade in the White House has planned.

    Sheila “Jackass” Lee needs to learn to get close to water.

    She stinks!!

    Fat chance of that. You can lead that mule to water, but you can’t make her bathe.

    Not that long ago I commented about the difference between the decent, hard working black family and a nigger. This woman fits into the category as one of the niggers.. There is nothing that would turn her on like killing a bunch of white folk. You can see the hatred on her face long before it spews from her pie hole.

    Sorry, but they make it so obvious that no one who isn’t blind can deny it. Politico Correctness demands you overlook it and the church says to turn the other cheek. However, survival demands recognition of their hatred and acting on it accordingly.

    No one reading this is, or ever has been, a slave or slave owner. The terms “slave” and “racist” are viciously used to cover up for ones own failure. Don’t believe this? Then ask any decent, morally principled, black person.

    PSS: In the same post previously mentioned, I also commented on the difference between a decent, hard working white family and white trash.

    Ms. Lee is a whimsical and ridiculous person. For Sure!!!!

    I suggest arrest and prosecution for fraud, misappropriation of funds (what’s new?), and generally anti-American actions. I suggest further, that she have to RETURN all funding that she received (STOLE) from the US government under the guise of…whatever whatever whatever. Talk about a waste of brains. She and pelosi must have a stupid contest going, to see which one can be the stupidest and still do the most damage to the nation.
