Talk is cheap, Senators.

The Democrats do more than talk.

We need to call these people commisars—political officers. We are allowing the Left to mis-name things, per usual. We all do this.

And of course they should be defunded. And then put on trial.

Can someone explain something to me.

These ‘czars’ are just ‘assistant secretaries’ for various cabinet level agencies or am I wrong?

Czars have long been a presidential overreach, and good riddance to them. Next up should be to outlaw “presidential signing statements”, that are some of the most unconstitutional activity ever done.

Having done this, the next thing the House and Senate should do is to mentally prepare for the impeachment of cabinet officers. While this can be done, only 1 cabinet officer has ever been impeached. But the important thing is that the congress has to be *comfortable* with the idea, as they are with the idea of impeaching federal judges, which they have done 15 times, including a Supreme Court justice.

This doesn’t mean actually impeaching anyone, just that congress needs to realize they *can*.

After that, congress must reestablish the seriousness of “contempt of congress” charges. If they subpoena someone to appear before them, that person has a right to plead the 5th Amendment against self-incrimination in front of them. What they do NOT have the right to do is refuse to appear.

If they refuse, then the committee, then congress as a whole can vote to cite them for contempt of congress, *and* refer that citation to a federal prosecutor for trial.
