An Open Letter to Senator Charles Schumer - Soapbox Rewind

*NOTE* Charlie will be back with a brand new soapbox on Monday, in the meantime, here's a rewind from 2017 which is still fairly relevant. - TeamCDB

Sen. Schumer, I don't live in your constituency but in the larger picture, you live in mine and every other legal, taxpaying American citizen who is affected by the power you hold in your political party, your blind allegiance to it and the obstructionist posture to anything that doesn't directly benefit it.

There's something sinister about seeing you bent over the lectern in the Senate Chamber, your countenance resembling what I would imagine Edgar Allen Poe's would look like reciting one of his macabre tales of doom and gloom, as if there is not one drop of happiness in your life, forecasting a dismal future for America if anything President Trump proposes passes both houses and becomes law.

I know you're disappointed, I know you had the balloons ready to fall and the corks halfway out of the champagne bottles election night and I know you just can't face the truth that what happened in the election was exactly the same thing you continue to do, you forgot about the working people, you forgot about the empty factories of the rust belt, you took for granted the high crime, low employment inner cities you've made unkept promises to for decades.

Instead of looking inward at the real cause for your party's loss you had to find a scapegoat and if it hadn't have been Russia it would have been something else.

Sen. Schumer, will you do me and America a favor, will you lay your hand on a Holy Bible and tell America that you believe in your heart that Donald Trump has actually colluded with Vladimir Putin and the Russian Government to the detriment of the United States of America.

You see sir, everything you've come up with so far, and you've been at it since well before the election, has been superficial, and I believe that anything your special counsel will come up with will also be superficial, guilt by association, the fires of trivially fanned and proliferated by a tilted, hate-filled media and super partisan politicians.

Sen. Schumer, what goes around truly does come around and if, or should I say when, this pendulum starts swinging back the other way, do you realize that Mr. Mueller could actually find a lot more dirt on prominent Democrats than they do Trump and his staff.

You have opened Pandora's Box, sir, and basically thrown away the lid.

Now it’s time to chop the log and let the chips fall where they will.

If President Trump has actually colluded with the Russians or any other foreign government, or sold-out my beloved nation in any way, I definitely want to know about it, and if he has he should be impeached and thrown out of office in disgrace, but right now you're a hell of a long way from proving even one little iota of your accusations.

Now let's turn this coin over.

Did or did not Hillary Clinton allow Russia to purchase up to 20% of American uranium reserves?

Who leaked the classified information that started this ball rolling? For the investigation to be valid, that has to come out.

Did Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton's State department through incompetence, indifference or both allow four American citizens to die in Benghazi?

Careful how you answer this one because the jury and some explosive evidence are still out there and could well be brought to light in a few months.

Did or did not Hillary, by using an unsecured internet server and allowing Huma Abedin to email copies to her husband, Anthony Weiner, expose classified documents?

Was there collusion between the Obama administration and the IRS to disallow tax-free status to conservative organizations?

If not, why did Lois Lerner plead the Fifth Amendment and retire with full benefits?

You see sir, Pandora is neither a Democrat nor a Republican and what is revealed in the coming months could well be a two-edged sword.

Careful what you wish for.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America

— Charlie Daniels

"If President Trump has actually colluded with the Russians or any other foreign government, or sold-out my beloved nation in any way, I definitely want to know about it..." You would know about it if you pulled your head out of the sand, or whatever.

Obama/Hillary Nightmare
Obama's Administration was full of corruption. One of many: Hillary's ignorance of many diplomatic situations proved her ineptitude of her position. She lied about unnecessary things and she lied about the situation at Benghazi which directly led to the deaths of our military and an ambassador. She lied to cover herself. She should be horrified, but people with no morals could care less what happens to others,

Charlie Daniels letter to Schumer
Great letter. More people of your status should be doing this. God Bless you Charles and your family. Mr Trump needs all the support he can get. Seems like the media is always beating up on him. He has my full support and I support your words to Schumer. Could not have put it better sir. Thank you !

Schumer and his buddies need to ante up
Well done, sir. It is just as appropriate now, even more so. What has come out from the NYT alone bolsters the picture of what fabrication was going on. But to start with it was a counterintelligence investigation begun by these Deep State actors. We should also know if it goes all the way up the pole to Obama’s Oval Office, which it seems to. Now Chuck Schumer being the partisan guy has every reason to cover and run interference for all this. Do we have to anticipate that incestuous bias from Mueller's investigation too? Apparently. That bias has been reinforced all along in spades. If this, as the NYT lays out again, was just the way the process works then where was the great investigation on Obama? Or why not? Schumer and his Dem colleagues would have had a fit if that was ever discussed let alone done. Which reminds me, we also need the scale balanced so we need the information Congress has been asking for. Chuck should agree but won't. We also need to look at the emails of Brennan and Clapper about the origination of the charade. When something this big, this wide, and this serious was done by our gov't, then the people demand to know about it. And we need to know just how high up it went. It's time people know what their own government did under the guise of a counterintelligence investigation, for two and a half years, and why they did it. The fiddler just called; when you danced all night, someone has to pay up. And when that is settled then we can also get to this ongoing matter of sedition.

Cryin Chuck
i moved to hendersonville 13 years ago, prior I was under chucks "representaion" (term used loosely" in NY........I urge anyone who who puts any credence in this guy to check his history. Hes has been found guilty of illegally taking 1 mil from his campaign fund and numerous other campaign violation and had to pay fines in the six figures, and thats just the tip of th iceberg. Cryin Chuck is a career crooked politician on a self serving agenda......if you have even an ounce of faith in this guy, please take a few minutes and do some homework on him..........part of the swamp that needs to be drained.......God Bless the President and God Bless two cents!

Well said Mr. Daniels. However, I believe that Schumer sold his soul a long time ago. Your words are falling on deaf ears. Very sad to think that the Devil is no longer hiding in our Congress. Looks like he came to Georgia and lost but found victory in NY.
