Bombshell Dropped By Dem Congresswoman Suggests “Martial Law” to End Government Shutdown

Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee used obscure language to characterize the push for a clean resolution which would end the government shutdown, labeling it a form of “martial law.”

Bombshell Dropped By Dem Congresswoman Suggests “Martial Law” to End Government Shutdown


Advocating for the passage of a clean continuing resolution that would, at least temporarily, end the current standoff in Washington and reopen the government, Lee said there were enough members of Congress who would vote for the resolution.

“It’s something called a continuing resolution, but it’s a bill that you put on the floor that has been passed already by Republicans and Democrats in the United States Senate….that we could vote on today,” said Lee, adding, “We have martial law – what that means – and my colleagues know what it means – is that you can put a bill on in just minutes.”

The term “martial law” in a legislative context is somewhat obscure but it has been used before to define lawmakers’ ability to “fast track” bills without going through the usual congressional process.

However, Lee’s insistence that a Senate-approved resolution to fund the federal government be fast-tracked via “martial law” appears to conflict with Article I, Section 7, Clause I of the Constitution, which states, “All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives.”

This clause was included by the founders to ensure that decisions related to the power of the purse reside with the legislative body which is closest to the American people.

The last time martial law was mentioned by a member of Congress was back in 2008 when Rep. Brad Sherman revealed how lawmakers were threatened with “martial law in America” by then Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson if they rejected the TARP bailout package.

  1. This what you get when you vote in a stupid simian. Negros aren’t, and have never been, ready for “prime-time”. Take Frobama for instance. Even with some white genes mixed in, he just fails miserably.

    This woman is indeed a moron and she never stops convincing us of her stupidity.

    So she basically suggested TREASON as a course of law? How about arresting all of them and throwing them into jail under NDAA/NDRP standards. At least until we can figure these things out including their connections to corruption.

    As for the concept of the Supreme Court making the ACA a “law” they too DID NOT READ IT.

    There fore they too are an illegitimate group of political types. I am quite sure a properly voted common law court would agree.

    What part of the MAJORITY of THE PEOPLE do not approve of Obamacare is so damned hard to understand?

    WE DO NOT WANT IT. Those who do quite often have been on government handout freebies for decades. Get a job EARN your income. Do not expect me to sacrifice my hard earned income so you can sit on your ass cranking out babies for decades. This is not Russia and even Russia would not allow what the liberal government has allowed.

    Communism is also called Wealth Redistribution. How many times have we heard that term in recent years?
