Congressman Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) faithfully representing the home of perhaps the most costly race riot in United States history responded at a town hall meeting to a constituent's call to execute the President of the United States with a long homage to more deadly guns.  

Believing that more than one handbag in the room contained a weapon, perhaps the Congressman was too afraid to point out that constitutionally  there should be a trial first. Perhaps he doesn't believe in the representative government, or maybe he was just thinking wistfully of the good old days in Tulsa when it was possible to kill up to 300 people and burn down the homes of 10,000 people with darker skins.  

Transcribed below:

Constituent:  I want to ask you about Obama, he's not President as far as I'm concerned, he should be executed. [Unintelligible]

Bridenstine:  Don't hold back now.

Constituent:  The Muslims that he is shipping into our country through pilots in commercial jets. What's this, I can't tell you since we are in a public place, this guy is a criminal, nobody's stopping him,  the other thing is the congress is doing nothing that legally allows this moron to make decisions.  He has no authority none, and he's just we are just saying he shouldn't do this he shouldn't do that, but nobody's doing anything that accomplishing anything.

Bridenstine: Look everybody knows the lawlessness of this President.  He picks and chooses which laws he is going to enforce.  He does it by decree.  When he can't create a law though congress then he uses the you know, then he uses the bureaucracy in the executive branch to create rules and regulations, Executive Order, and ultimately when comes to, when he can't even get that done then he uses foreign bodies.  He uses the ah United Nations to try to change the laws in the United States which is not what the United Nations is for.

I'll give you an example. Going back to April of 2013 you know there was an effort to ban certain types of guns.  Not because the operated any differently than any other type of gun, but because the looked scary.  So we are going to ban those because they look scary.  

Now that's not what I said it's what the President said.  Ultimately he couldn't get it done because the Senate blocked it which was the right answer. Then he said we are going to limit magazine sizes.  The Senate blocked that, because it was the right answer.

Then he wanted universal background checks which in reality is a national gun registration, let's be clear.  He wanted universal background checks which is a national gun registration and he couldn't get that.  

So the here comes the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty which creates an international Secretariat were if you have any gun which has any part made in any foreign country, then you have to do, not a national background check.  An international background check which is an international registry.

What does the President do?  He pushes for it.  John Kerry pushes for it. Then they sign it.  

So when he can't get things done through Congress, when they can't get things done through Executive Order when they can't unilaterally decree that they are not going to enforce the law.  They go to the United Nations and sign a treaty.

Let me be clear the Second Amendment of the United States of America is not open for debate by foreign governments. [Murmurs of approval] And that's what this President gets wrong.  [clapping]

Okay Dave is telling me I have time for one more question.

Yes ma’am,

Second Woman speaker:  The only way I see out of this is to overwhelmingly change the Senate.  You know that then we can impeach the SOB. [Laughter] [Applause].  

Bridenstine:  You know you look so sweet. [Laughter]

Second woman:  You know we have all had it up to here, and nobody's doing anything about it.

Bridenstine:  You know you are absolutely right as long as Harry Reed and the Democrats are in charge of the Senate there is nothing that can be done to hold this president accountable.

These are the people who speak of the President as a divisive force and revere the Constitution while they speak of the overthrow of the government.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
