Eleanor Holmes Norton, the non-voting congressional delegate for the District of Columbia, angrily sputtered during a congressional hearing Friday that the White House should not be held up to scrutiny, saying that there was no right to know what it was doing behind closed doors.

Our system of checks and balances has been fatally compromised by the Democrat devotion to The Party — over love of country.

Oh really????

Who, then, pays your salary? Jane and John Q. Public!

Who are YOU to answer to? Jane and John Q. Public!

Who, by Constitutional RIGHT, is ‘government’, (which is includes YOU), is answerable to? Jane and John Q. Public!

Lastly, as a personal retort, K.M.A.B.!

We have a duty to know what’s going on in congress.

Personally I would start by educating Americans to the fact that Norton isn’t a legitimate voting representative and why.

D.C. will have a voting Member of Congress when they stop electing idiots like EHN. In other words, not in my lifetime.

“Under our black and brown Overlords we are getting a small taste of what life will be like for coming generations of Americans.”

You’re right; I knew what race the speaker was from the first sentence (before seeing the picture). Blacks will hardly be overlords, though; they have fallen behind even the newest Hispanic immigrants. They are useful idiots of the left, but will never be allowed off the urban welfare reservations. Too many white liberals make lucrative paychecks administering them in those controlled environments, as cops, firemen, teachers, prison guards, social workers, etc.

The poverty industry is HUGE.

There seems to be some validity to the Bell Curve. Just an ignant person who should never be in public life. They be lots of them.

It’s interesting that she is the non-voting delegate to Congress from the District of Columbia.

I’m not sure why they have a delegate from D.C. in Congress. D.C. does not have representatives in Congress because it is not a state. But, in her position, she gets to make speeches and make her political statements on the floor of Congress, as any other congressman can do.

“Under our black and brown (and Gay) Overlords we are getting a small taste of what life will be like for coming generations of Americans.”

It is PAY BACK TIME!

Don’t ask questions, just get in the back of the bus, especially if you are OWG (Old White Guy).

“You don’t have a right to know everything in a separation-of-powers government, my friend.”

When one branch of government spies on another, and has the capacity to blackmail another, there are no check’s and balances, and at that point ‘separation-of-powers’ doesn’t exist. If there is no transparency, there is no accountability, and the one ‘separation’ of powers that can never exist in a legitimate government is one in which the citizens themselves are separated from the knowledge of what their government is doing to them.

With apologies to Douglas MacArthur, I can just hear any one of these leftists giving a retirement speech(if only they would!!) and to paraphrase the General's great speech given at West Point it would probably sound like this:

... but I want you to know that when I cross the river my last conscious thoughts will be-of The Party, and The Party, and The Party. I bid you farewell.
