GOP House Schedules Vote on
Bill That Will Strip Constitutional
Rights from Americans Tried
by Indian Tribes

Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/28/2013 10:35:25 AM

The House Republican leadership has scheduled a floor vote on Thursday on a Senate version of the Violence Against Women Act that, if enacted, would strip constitutional rights from Americans prosecuted by Indian tribes for alleged acts of domestic violence. The bill was sponsored by Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, and opposed by the conservative bloc in the Republican Senate Conference--as well as by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the senior Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Senate conservatives Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee

Comments:
What on earth is wrong with these people?? Why would they do something like this? I´m really starting to wonder about Eric Cantor. With all the critical issues we are facing right now this sure doesn´t seem like the appropriate time to do something like this.

I agree, what is wrong with these people? There are so many important issues that the Republicans need to address -- this is definitely not one of the issues.

The rights guaranteed by the Constitution are under enough attacks. This makes the problem worse. Once a person is stripped of US citizenship they may be beyond the legal Pale of protections and may be dealt with in any way by "the authorities". I have recently read that there is at least one secret British Court which strips British citizens of their citizenship, after which some have been murdered in drone attacks. Declaring a person to be a non-citizens makes them "stateless persons" so they can be disposed of at will.

ERIC CANTOR and JOHN BOEHNER: I don´t care WHAT the title of this bill is, you better NOT pass it.
You got that?!

This will open the door for the Constitution to be totally discredited, imho.

I read the first paragraph to see its the Senate version so of course it is un-Constitutional. Voting on it does not mean they support it unless they vote for it.

Makes no sense at all. You can´t repeal the Constitution or protections under the Constitution with an act of the legislature - you have to amend the Constitution. And there´s nothing in the Constitution that allows us to take away constitutional protections for trial by tribes. They can´t deny due process any more than they could say the First Amendment doesn´t apply on an Indian reservation. This is silly and stupid.

I´d say this will never stand once it gets to SCOTUS, but John Roberts destroyed my faith in their doing anything right ever again. Where on earth did this travesty of a bill originate? And why? Seriously?!?!? A NON-Native American could be prosecuted and found guilty and have no access to Constitutional rights?!?!? What in HADES are these morons (the GOP) thinking?!?!?

Allow me to offer an example that shows the problem.
If you are driving on the NYS thruway between the Pa border and Buffalo, you will see signs claiming that you are in native american territory, under the jurisdiction of the tribe. And let´s say you exit the thruway, and go into an indian gas station, and are accused of some sort of violence against the clerk at that gas station.
You would be under the jurisdiction of the local indians.

#9, that´s not true. Although I don´t think it´s a very good bill, it only applies to "domestic violence", so you are only going to get tried for beating up the convenience store clerk if you move in with her.

Lesson to the wise: stay away from the Res and leave dem red wimmin´s alone.

It`s going to pass #3. Once again the GOP acts in the best interest of the federal bureaucracy. We are screwed as a nation. It is truly over. Before these jokers are finished with us, we will have no rights at all.

Next up, strip gun right, then pass global warming. In 2014 the dems will push raising the minimum wage yet again just in time for the 2014 midterm election, thus putting the GOP in a political position of `harming women and children` by not increasing the minimum wage.

Right now in Minnesota if your boat strays into the side of Red Lake in northern Minnesota they claim then your boat can be confiscated - stolen from you.

What could the penalty be in the future?

The Indians should not be separate from the rest of us. Same laws and same Constitutional protections as the rest of us.

second post apologies, but,
#10, domestic violence would be defined by the tribe, since they have jurisdiction. And the same thing could happen at one of those indian casinos in nys, which are allowed to operate because they are located on indian territory. And if you drive I 81 south of syracuse, ny, you will see exit signs for the onondaga nation! Same deal.

Levin talked about this in detail this week. This legislation would elevate bad language to the level of an assault. And once convicted, you cannot own firearms any longer. Oh, and it allows foreigners to claim a need for asylum. There´s nothing good about this bill, and they wrap it up in a fake name as a way to bully people into voting for it. Politics is the filthiest business in world, and politicians the biggest whores and pimps.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
