OBSTRUCTION!!!


Sorry but, what the hell can anyone say? I’m so tired of and so over this ASS!! … ‘Today, in a strictly retaliatory move against Congress and We the People, he played that tired old “executive privilege” card. Congress had made known earlier this week its intent to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of Congress for failure to answer the subpoenas they were issued by the House Oversight Committee to release certain documents. Drumpf threatened that if they did so, he would invoke ‘executive privilege’ on the documents the committee had requested regarding how a citizenship question came to be added to the 2020 census form. Just a few hours ago, Drumpf acted on his threat and invoked that ‘executive privilege’ that he has so often used and abused.’

Donald Trump is playing games with our lives.  Today, in a strictly retaliatory move against Congress and We the People, he played that tired old “executive privilege” card.  Congress had made known earlier this week its intent to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of Congress for failure to answer the subpoenas they were issued by the House Oversight Committee to release certain documents.  Trump threatened that if they did so, he would invoke ‘executive privilege’ on the documents the committee had requested regarding how a citizenship question came to be added to the 2020 census form.  Just a few hours ago, Trump acted on his threat and invoked that ‘executive privilege’ that he has so often used and abused.

Congress has not only a constitutional right, but a constitutional mandate to investigate, to find the truth. That truth is being hidden, kept…

THREE YEARS AGO TODAY

I could’ve been there. It was Latin Night.

The majority of the victims were Puerto Rican.

=================================================

On June 12, 2016, a 29-year-old American security guard, killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in a mass shooting inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, United States. Orlando Police Department officers shot and killed him after a three-hour standoff.

Pulse was hosting a “Latin Night,” and most of the victims were Hispanic. It is the deadliest incident of violence against LGBT people in U.S. history and the deadliest terrorist attack in the U.S. since the September 11 attacks in 2001

~Wikipedia~

Forty-nine people were killed when a man opened fire with an assault-style rifle in an Orlando gay nightclub on June 12, 2016. Another 53 were injured.

It was the deadliest mass shooting by a single person in modern US history.

Jon Stewart: …. “Congress ‘should be ashamed’ over Inaction on Helping 9/11 First Responders …. “!!


~~June 12, 2019~~

MR. STEWART COMES TO WASHINGTON

I have no need to say anything.

Jon Stewart has said everything.

Congress INDEED should be ashamed!

Guess that shame is something quite lacking in the Washington circles.

Former host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” Jon Stewart took a vastly different tone than his usual satirical shtick when he spoke Tuesday on Capitol Hill about the need to reauthorize the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund.

The measure aims to provide health care benefits to first responders and others in the community with illnesses related to the 2001 terror attacks, but it’s running short of money.

In his emotional testimony before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, Stewart at times broke down in tears, shouting at the lawmakers and calling them “shameful.”

“I can’t help but think what an incredible metaphor this room is … a filled room of 9/11 first responders and in front of me, a nearly empty Congress. Sick and dying, they brought themselves down here to speak to no one … shameful,” said Stewart at the outset of his remarks.

A little over half of the 14-member subcommittee members were present, mostly Democrats.

Congress passed the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act in 2010, over opposition from some Republicans who balked at its $7 billion price tag. The act was reauthorized in 2015 for 90 years. But a portion of the law – the Victim Compensation Fund – was only funded for five years, through the end of 2020. 

The fund aimed to provide necessary financial support for the thousands who suffered serious medical issues, including a spate of cancer diagnoses, after the 2001 attacks.

Stewart’s testimony was not the first to bring members of Congress and the audience to its feet.

Luis Alvarez, a retired NYPD detective and 9/11 responder, also testified before the House panel. He is set to begin his 69th round of chemotherapy Wednesday, June 12 to treat the cancer he was diagnosed with after the World Trade Center fell.

Jon Stewart, the former host of “The Daily Show,” appeared before a House committee in Washington, D.C., to again advocate for health benefits for 9/11 first responders. At the start of his 10-minute statement, Stewart said Tuesday’s hearing was an “incredible metaphor.”

“Behind me, a filled room of 9/11 first responders and in front of me, a nearly empty Congress.” Stewart said the lack of urgency to help these responders was a “stain” on Congress.

“Your indifference cost these men and women their most valuable commodity: time,” he said. “It’s the one thing they’re running out of.”
