On June 3rd of this year, the FBI arrested Peter Navarro, former Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy in the Trump administration. Mr. Navarro's alleged crime: 'Contempt of Congress.' Apparently Mr. Navarro ignored subpoenas issued by the kangaroo court known as the January 6 Committee, headed by the incredibly stupid Bennie Thompson, and also composed of the incredibly evil Liz Cheney (wickedness is deeply imbedded in her gene pool) , and seven other tax parasites. For ignoring these subpoenas, Mr Navarro was arrested and shackled in leg chains, treated as if he were the captured ringleader of a Mexican drug cartel. On Friday, July 22, former Trump aide Steve Bannon was convicted of 'Contempt of Congress.' Mr. Bannon awaits sentencing in October. One can expect the harshest of possible sentences to be given to him. The federal prosecutors and judges assigned to these cases are relishing the power they have been given to ruin the lives of those who had the gall to enter the hallowed chamber on January 6, 2021. Ah, the peril of disrespecting, then ignoring these hypocritical cretins!
Count me overwhelmingly guilty of Contempt of Congress. Although I was in the woods in Wayne County, Mississippi on January 6, 2021, 937 miles from the filthy imperial capitol, I am 100% guilty of Contempt of Congress. I have nothing but contempt for a legislative body, each making $174,000 a year ($210,000 a year for the Marxist Pelosi) , taken from the fruits of the labor of those who actually work for a living. I have nothing but contempt for a group which increases useless federal spending year after year. I have nothing but contempt for a group which has participated in increasing the federal debt from $5.674 trillion in 2000 to over $30 trillion in 2022. I have nothing but contempt for a group which votes to give Planned Parenthood, the world's most prolific baby-killing machine, $500,000,000 of taxpayer money, year after year. I have nothing but contempt for a group which has given $53,000,000,000 + of taxpayer money to Ukraine since March of this year, (whose government and so-called president, is as corrupt, or more so, than the cockroaches in Washington, DC) to fight a proxy war against Russia, all because self-anointed Saint Hillary claims the Russians are the reason she was denied the White House in 2016, and to further enrich the despicable war profiteers, whose multi-million dollar homes dot the landscape of northern Virginia.
I propose reducing congressional pay to the median income which corresponds to the state one wishes to represent. This means the pay of Mississippians Roger Wicker, Cindy Hyde-Smith, Bennie Thompson and the others would drop from $174,000 a year to $45,081 a year. If that's not enough for them to make ends meet, maybe they could get a part-time job at Wal-Mart stocking shelves at night, or cooking hamburgers at the local Wendy's. On second thought, let's just completely eliminate congressional salaries. If a would-be congressman/senator can't support himself without money extracted from the 'deplorable' hoi polloi, don't run for the office. By the way, I did vote for Mike Ezell in the recent primary, if for no other reason than to give neo-con Steven Palazzo his walking papers. He has been on the taxpayer dole long enough. (However, he won't be completely off the taxpayer dole – he will receive a generous taxpayer-funded pension beginning next year.) If Ezell goes to Congress and does not work to drastically reduce federal spending, does not push to bring the U.S. military home from around the globe, to defend the United States, and ONLY the United States, and does not push to eliminate foreign aid of all kinds, I will vote to fire him, too. On second thought, I have grown weary of voting in elections originating in the District of Corruption, the city whose part-time and full-time inhabitants revere the tyrant and war criminal Abraham Lincoln. I have concluded that secession, for the second time, is the only answer. Et tu, fellow Rebels?
