Democrats Throwing Government Into Constitutional Crisis Over Willingness to Violate Due Process – UPDATED!

Posted by iusbvision on December 30, 2008

The coverage of the Rod Blegojevich scandal at the IUSB Vision has been more fair, informative and educational than any other coverage we have seen.

We told you the evidence against Blagojevich and we have also told you how the Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is engaging in prosecutorial misconduct and is using the media to manipulate the jury pool in a way that is highly unethical. The Democrats, not wanting to take on Fitzgerald because he have them the Valerie Plame nonscandal to use against Republicans, and wanting to make sure that the investigation was cut short so as not to include other Democrats; have begun an active campaign to deny Governor Blagojevich his due process rights, including starting impeachment hearings against him while refusing to allow him the witnesses he needs for his defense. (See links HERE, HERE,  HERE and HERE).

The latest act of abandoning the time-honored right of innocent until proved guilty, the Democrat leader in the Senate, Harry Reid, says that he will not allow Roland Burris,whom Governor Blagojevich has nominated to replace Senator Obama in the Senate, to sit. Such an act is a blatant violation of the law.

The Constitution says that as long as a person is a citizen of the United States, a resident of the state that he represents and is over the age of 30 they may serve in the Senate. No other standards may be used to keep a person out of the Senate. Blagojevbich is the Governor and he is innocent until proved guilty and he is well within his powers to appoint Burris to the seat. Period.

These Democrats are the same people who said that Bush was violating Al-Qeada’s due process rights by holding them at GITMO (which was a lie) and now they feel free, because it is politically expedient, to trample the due process rights of Governor Blagojevich even if it means violating the written word of the Constitution to do so.

These same Democrats, who said that you are a racist if you judge Barack Obama by his close associations with radicals and criminals such as Tony Rezko, William Ayers, Rev. Wright, Minister Farrakhan, Pfleger, Khalidi and the list goes on and on are saying that Roland Burris, who has had a long political career in Illinois politics is not allowed to sit in the Senate because he is a Blagojevich ally. Talk about your guilt by association hypocrisy.

These same Democrats who claimed that Republicans would use the race card against Obama in the election (and didn’t by the way) are now using the race card as a blunt weapon. See the video below (thanks to Hotair.com for posting the video):

Update: Nope… no race card here…. (Hat Tip Allahpundit for the video link)

Posted by iusbvision on December 30, 2008

Thats right I said again…

Via the great Michelle Malkin:

Color me unsurprised: Bob Owens notes that YouTube is censoring content on the Israeli Defense Forces video channel.

YouTube didn’t earn the AllahTube and DhimmiTube nicknames for nothing!

Greg Jarrett Takes Lying Palestinian Apologist Apart

Posted by iusbvision on December 30, 2008

This is an example of the outrageous antisemitic and anti-israeli propaganda that is peddled by the media in Europe, the Middle-East and some far left sources around the world and in some universities. Greg Jarrett isn’t having it and its about time someone stood up to liars like these.

Special thanks to Hotair.com for posting the videos.

Best of O’Reilly Factor Ambushes 2008

Posted by iusbvision on December 30, 2008

A must see. While I have a small degree of sympathy for these guys, half a dozen satellite trucks were outside of Joe the Plumber’s house and no one, but no one in the elite media was trying to get tough interviews with the following jokers.

AP Attacks Palin in Birth Announcement….

AP Attacks Gov. Palin EVEN in Birth Announcement of Grandson
By Warner Todd Huston (Bio | Archive)
December 30, 2008 – 01:40 ET

The Associated Press is classy, indeed. They can’t even keep sniping at Sarah Palin out of a story announcing the blessed birth of her grandson. Ah, but wait, it gets even more annoying because not only did the AP snipe at Palin in its first birth announcement story, once called on it the AP went back twice to rearrange the piece rewriting history to make it seem as if they never sniped at her in the first place.

Initially, the AP attacked Palin in its very first paragraph saying that daughter Bristol’s pregnancy was the thing that caused Palin’s candidacy to “go downhill.” At 7:20 PM the AP gave us this: (Bold my emphasis)…

ABOUT FACE: Now the Elite Media is Concerned Where The Terrorists Will Go if GITMO is Closed…

Posted by iusbvision on December 30, 2008

I predicted this one….

By Alan Gomez, USA TODAY

President-elect Barack Obama vowed on the campaign trail to shut down the terrorist detention center at Guantanamo Bay. But he never said what he would do with the prisoners there.

What to do with the 250 alleged foreign terrorists at the Cuba prison is the real question facing Obama, experts say.

Terrorism experts and two recent analyses of unclassified information on the prison population indicate the men who remain there are either committed, highly skilled al-Qaeda operatives too dangerous to ever free, or Islamists whose native countries would do little to prevent them from rejoining the jihad.
