It seems like the House Democrats have decided to make the District of Columbia the 51st state of the union, and this time they might get it done as they have found supportive leaders in the U.S. Senate and the White House.
Eleanor Holmes Norton, a D.C. Congressional Delegate, had led the statehood charge for years, predicted earlier this year “there’s never been a time when statehood for the District was more likely.”
The first step, aptly entitled H.R. 51, Washington, D.C. Admission Act, will take center stage on Monday when the House Committee on Oversight and Reform will hold a hearing.
Washington is a city located in Maryland and should be part of their state, so there is no need for additional house seats or two senators. Problem solved as far as representation is concerned, but we all know that’s not why they’re doing this.
The simple solution is to distribute D.C.’s residents to the adjoining States if they really want more representation. However, DC Statehood is a ruse. It’s a Democrat scan to get more House and Senate seats. If Congress thought the minor insurrection in DC in January was scary, then they better keep the fences and guardsmen in place if they push this power grab through.
The District of Colombia is not suited for statehood. If it were, it would have been made a state by our nation’s founding fathers and constitutional framers. It was not.
Washington DC. belongs to all of the people, all of the tax-paying citizens, of this nation. If you want my portion of it, I require payment, in full cash, equal to 6.02×10^23 dollars, tax-free. If that amount of physical currency cannot be produced, I refuse to relinquish my portion of the District.
Under the Constitution, Maryland ceded land to fill out the 10×10 square (100 square miles) for use only for the Federal Government use. Congress cannot carve out a state from that land because once done, it is not for the Federal government and, under the law and agreement, returned to Maryland. Can our Democrat leaders be that ignorant of the law?
Wake Up America! What is happening in the country today is intuitively obvious to the most casual observer, the Democrats wish to destroy the USA and have a Socialist/ Communist country.
The media are their accomplices as they are following an old-time journalists teachings, he was the editor of Russia’s media, PRAVDA the media are replicating exactly what he did almost 100 years ago, his name was Joseph Stalin, he left the media to carry out his teachings of Socialism and Communism, in doing so he killed over 20 Million Russians.
Perhaps that was the media’s infatuation with the Russia, Russia nonsense during the Trump era. Remember, just 50 Years ago, the USSR’s leader Nikita Khrushchev predicted what is happening today.
If the people of D.C. want to be in a state, then the residential sections of D.C. can be moved to Maryland. We do not need to create a new state to accommodate the smallest state in the area and is less than half the size of Atlanta, GA, or two-thirds the size of Baltimore.
Talk about another waste of time by congress. This is in the constitution that DC must be separate. If they are not pursuing a constitutional amendment, then these legislatures are going against the constitution and should be removed from office for not following the constitution that they have sworn to uphold.
Literally, everything the left has done this year has either not helped Americans or hurt Americans. All in the vein of gaining power. If they are hurting Americans with muted power, imagine the carnage if they could wield unlimited power?
These Communists are trying everything to reshape this great Republic. Or once great Republic up until 2 months ago. They are living by the mantra of “tear it down to build it back up.” Unfortunately, their idea of building back up is a country I don’t want to live in. Stop this. We need to fight back; we cannot let the Left destroy us.
