    Sadly, the Office of POTUS has become more and more like a monarchy. Congress doesn't declare war and hasn't for a long time. Executive privilege has been invoked many times as well. Executive orders are used as well. Most of these actions we don't even hear about. It happens right under our noses. People only care when it is an issue they care about and it is reported in the media. But then there are also propaganda machines who misrepresent facts for their issue. So it has to rise above that "noise" level. It has to get on the 24 hour news cycle and then people will learn about it. Cable news is un-educating our public much of the time.

    Regardless, I would look to her as a hero for having the courage to do what is right. It may cause impeachment proceedings, but that is an argument that can be won, IMO. I understand the problem you have with her disobeying the law she is supposed to uphold. Ironically, it is I that is endorsing rebellious behavior.

    Update: The Flag was removed and then put back up 45 mins later.


    Woman removes Confederate flag in front of SC statehouse.....

    The Confederate flag was temporarily removed from the front of the South Carolina Statehouse on Saturday when a woman climbed the flagpole and — despite calls by police to get down — removed the banner. Bree Newsome, 30, of Charlotte, North Carolina, was about halfway up the more than 30-foot steel flagpole just after dawn Saturday when officers of the South Carolina Bureau of Protective Services ran to the flagpole and told her to get down. Instead, she continued climbing to the top and removed the flag.

    She and a man who had climbed over a four-foot wrought-iron fence to get to the flag were arrested. The flag, which is protected by state law, was raised about 45 minutes later, well ahead of a rally later Saturday by supporters of keeping the flag where it is.

    Sherri Iacobelli, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Public Safety, said Newsome and James Ian Tyson, 30, also of Charlotte, have been charged with defacing monuments on state Capitol grounds. That's a misdemeanor that carries a fine of up to $5,000 and a prison term of up to three years or both.....snip~

    The flag did not kill 9 blacks in that church. A mentally unstable racist kid did.

    1. There was an announced bounty and bail to be paid for such action.
    2. The woman who did this is one who participates in activism for such payments.

    So basically it was a paid activism stunt.

    Mornin EC. Well it didn't work.....they put the Flag Right back up. Do you think she will be given time? Haley had already announced when it will be taken down. So what was the point of the stunt?

    The leftwad wants instant gratification? As it doesn't seem like the activist would be one from the Right.

    Hopefully she and the ones offering the bounty get the maximum charge and sentence for the stunt.


    Hopefully he is charged.

    That seems odd that she could announce such, especially as it takes a super majority to pass such legislation.

    Money making opportunity for the social activists. The bounty was only $10,000 + bail/bond.
    Which was $3,000.


    The amount gathered for it far exceeds the amount required.

    She has the ability to call a special session. It still takes a super majority to change it.

    Yep, I haven't been following if they kept their session going or not. Which I thought SC Congress was extending it with their budget session.

    How stupid the American people are the sheep follow the wind. Questions;
    If the Dixie flag is removed from everywhere in the country,
    How many black males will stay with on woman and raise a couple kids instead of impregnating six or seven and never spend a minute with any of the women or kids?.
    How many will not drop out of school?
    How many will not turn to crime?
    How many will not turn to drugs?
    How many will find and keep jobs?
    How many will not be killed before they are 20 years old?
    How many will avoid membership in gangs?
    The stupid liberals and minorities rejoicing in the removal of that flag guarantee there will never be hope for those it is suppose to oppress because the real oppressors are those that refuse to address the real issues listed above. Strip the Hells Angels symbol off their backs and what are you left with you ignorant fools?
