"Are you now or have you ever been a listener of the Rush Limbaugh Show?"
our overly taxed dollars at work, Mr. and Mrs. America.
A congressional staff whose salaries you're paying, whose sole job is to serve you —
From the Congressional Staffer application form:I am aware that federal law provides for imprisonment and/or fines for false statements or use of false documents in connection with the completion of this form.
U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
OATH OF OFFICE
PAYROLL AND BENEFITS INFORMATION
IN ORDER TO RECEIVE ANY PAY FOR SERVICES, all new and returning employees, and employees taking a break in service must complete Parts C through H.C. OATH OF OFFICE:
I, ______, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
not the personal aspirations or political vendettas of Henry Al-Waxman (D-Beverly Hills), the chairperson of your House's oversight and government reform committee — and whose oaths of office require each and every one of them to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States [including the First Amendment] against all enemies, foreign and domestic," may not be hired or used as media-content monitors or transcribers
by any member of al-Qongress.
Stiflery of Speech WaxMcCarthyism, before he abuses his power on your dime, must be told in no uncertain terms that if he proceeds to unlawfully deploy any of our public servants to enforce whatever Newspeak dictates and demands he sets down for whoever dares say on our airwaves anything not officially approved by his or his minions' despotic selves, there will be more than one "investigative staff to begin compiling reports" — on him.
Since the Surveillancery of Speech knows or should know that our constitution absolutely prohibits al-Qongress from making any "law abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press," any attempt on his part as a congressional officer colluding with his staff to effectively do just that would be a clear-cut case of willful conspiracy against rights — a federal felony offense under Title 18 of the U.S. Code:
- § 241. Conspiracy against rights
If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or
If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured—
They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.
Further relevant offenses are also covered under Title 18:
- § 872. Extortion by officers or employees of the United States
Whoever, being an officer, or employee of the United States or any department or agency thereof, or representing himself to be or assuming to act as such, under color or pretense of office or employment commits or attempts an act of extortion, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; but if the amount so extorted or demanded does not exceed $1,000, he shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.
§ 875. Interstate communications
(d) Whoever, with intent to extort from any person, firm, association, or corporation, any money or other thing of value [e.g., silencing or curtailment of political opponent's broadcast speech], transmits in interstate or foreign commerce any communication containing any threat to injure the property or reputation of the addressee or of another or the reputation of a deceased person or any threat to accuse the addressee or any other person of a crime, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.
§ 1913. Lobbying with appropriated moneys
[e.g., using congressional committee funds to browbeat Federal Communications Commission officials into abridging by proxy any citizen's free speech rights]
No part of the money appropriated by any enactment of Congress shall, in the absence of express authorization by Congress, be used directly or indirectly to pay for any personal service, advertisement, telegram, telephone, letter, printed or written matter, or other device, intended or designed to influence in any manner a Member of Congress, a jurisdiction, or an official of any government, to favor, adopt, or oppose, by vote or otherwise, any legislation, law, ratification, policy, or appropriation, whether before or after the introduction of any bill, measure, or resolution proposing such legislation, law, ratification, policy, or appropriation; but this shall not prevent officers or employees of the United States or of its departments or agencies from communicating to any such Member or official, at his request, or to Congress or such official, through the proper official channels, requests for any legislation, law, ratification, policy, or appropriations which they deem necessary for the efficient conduct of the public business, or from making any communication whose prohibition by this section might, in the opinion of the Attorney General, violate the Constitution or interfere with the conduct of foreign policy, counter-intelligence, intelligence, or national security activities. Violations of this section shall constitute violations of section 1352 (a) of title 31.
§ 2261A. Stalking
(2) with the intent—
(A) to... harass, or place under surveillance with intent to... harass, or intimidate, or cause substantial emotional distress to a person in another State or tribal jurisdiction or within the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States...
shall be punished as provided in section 2261 (b) of this title.
. . .
§ 2266. Definitions
In this chapter:
(8) State.— The term "State" includes a State of the United States, the District of Columbia, and a commonwealth, territory, or possession of the United States.
He'd even be violating international law — specifically, the following articles of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which our nation ratified in 1992:
- Article 2.
1. Each State Party to the present Covenant undertakes to respect and to ensure to all individuals within its territory and subject to its jurisdiction the rights recognized in the present Covenant, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
2. Where not already provided for by existing legislative or other measures, each State Party to the present Covenant undertakes to take the necessary steps, in accordance with its constitutional processes and with the provisions of the present Covenant, to adopt such laws or other measures as may be necessary to give effect to the rights recognized in the present Covenant.
3. Each State Party to the present Covenant undertakes:
(a) To ensure that any person whose rights or freedoms as herein recognized are violated shall have an effective remedy, notwithstanding that the violation has been committed by persons acting in an official capacity;
(b) To ensure that any person claiming such a remedy shall have his right thereto determined by competent judicial, administrative or legislative authorities, or by any other competent authority provided for by the legal system of the State, and to develop the possibilities of judicial remedy;
(c) To ensure that the competent authorities shall enforce such remedies when granted.
1. No one shall be subjected to arbitrary or unlawful interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to unlawful attacks on his honour and reputation.
2. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.
1. Everyone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference.
2. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of his choice.
3. The exercise of the rights provided for in paragraph 2 of this article carries with it special duties and responsibilities. It may therefore be subject to certain restrictions, but these shall only be such as are provided by law and are necessary:
(a) For respect of the rights or reputations of others;
(b) For the protection of national security or of public order (ordre public), or of public health or morals.
[U.S. Declaration] "(2) That it is the view of the United States that States Party to the Covenant should wherever possible refrain from imposing any restrictions or limitations on the exercise of the rights recognized and protected by the Covenant, even when such restrictions and limitations are permissible under the terms of the Covenant. For the United States, article 5, paragraph 2, which provides that fundamental human rights existing in any State Party may not be diminished on the pretext that the Covenant recognizes them to a lesser extent, has particular relevance to article 19, paragraph 3 which would permit certain restrictions on the freedom of expression. The United States declares that it will continue to adhere to the requirements and constraints of its Constitution in respect to all such restrictions and limitations."
Every citizen shall have the right and the opportunity, without any of the distinctions mentioned in article 2 and without unreasonable restrictions:
(a) To take part in the conduct of public affairs, directly or through freely chosen representatives....
All persons are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to the equal protection of the law. In this respect, the law shall prohibit any discrimination and guarantee to all persons equal and effective protection against discrimination on any ground such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
Nothing in the present Covenant shall be interpreted as impairing the inherent right of all peoples to enjoy and utilize fully and freely their natural wealth and resources.
The provisions of the present Covenant shall extend to all parts of federal States without any limitations or exceptions.
[U.S. Understanding] "(5) That the United States understands that this Covenant shall be implemented by the Federal Government to the extent that it exercises legislative and judicial jurisdiction over the matters covered therein, and otherwise by the state and local governments; to the extent that state and local governments exercise jurisdiction over such matters, the Federal Government shall take measures appropriate to the Federal system to the end that the competent authorities of the state or local governments may take appropriate measures for the fulfillment of the Covenant."
Any plan of Wackoman's to form some Qongressional Qommissariat within our government for
monitoring discouraging and belaboring the full exercise of free speech rights by one or more of the people, is an intentional violation not only of his oath but of our constitution, our laws, and our very way of life.
It should surprise precisely no one that a top Dictatorat in al-Qongress would so attempt to shred our constitution in order to usher in his personal brand of tyranny.
