Posted on 12/15/2015 12:55:34 PM PST by Enlightened1
South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy was forced to teach a DHS official about Constitutional rights during a House hearing.
GOWDY: Let me ask you another question about the terrorism list. What process is afforded a U.S. citizen, not someone who has overstayed a visa, not someone who crossed the border without permission, but an American citizen; what process is currently afforded an American citizen before they go on that list?
KELLI BURRIESCI: I'm sorry, um, there's not a process afforded the citizen prior to getting on the list; there is a process should someone feel they are unduly placed on the list.
GOWDY: Yes, there is. When I say process, I'm actually using half of the term due process, which is a phrase we find in the Constitution-that you cannot deprive people of certain things without due process. My question is can you name another constitutional right that we have that is chilled, until you find out it's chilled-and then you have to petition the government to get it back. Is that true with the First Amendment?
BURRIESCI: Sir, there are strict criteria before anybody...
GOWDY: That is not my question. My question is what process is afforded a U.S. citizen before that person's constitutional right is infringed? That he's fine with doing it with the second amendment. My question is how about the first? How about we not let 'em set up a website? Or a Google account? How about we not let 'em join the Church until they can petition government to get off the list? How about not get a lawyer? How about the Sixth Amendment? How about you can't get a lawyer until you petition the government to get off the list? Or my favorite, how about the Eighth Amendment?

Here is the 2 minute video.
You could tell she has never even thought of this until now.
There are videos all over the internet of this girl.
“Dumb as a stick” comes to mind.
saw this posted yesterday - a bump because it’s important for people to read.
Will she be reprimanded? Fired? Anything? Will her department lose funding? Until then this is nothing more than theater.
Deputy Assistant Secretary
Office of Screening Coordination
Department of Homeland Security
KELLI BURRIESCI....... This imbecile is making 130,000 a year and you’re not. Hopefully she is not civil service and President Donald Trump can fire her butt and thousands like her (Obama appointed liberal and affirmative action hacks that do nothing useful)
That's why the government puts her out there. It's all about deflecting from what they are really up to
The “braintrust” of the 0bama caliphate, composed of the “best and brightest”[sic] - Marie Harf, Jen Psaki and KELLI BURRIESCI. These imbeciles are running YOUR government and making rules that control YOU! Is it no wonder we have a $19 TRILLION debt and are the laughing stock of the world!
salt in the wound? I doubt she has to suffer ObamaCare either.
Hell ... she’ll likely be promoted.
I wish they would bring back the Old Civil Service and bring back the exam, too many idiots in government and they have degrees and make more money than me for crying out loud.
Did she just come over the border?
The late Senator Fred Thompson once chaired a committee trying to get to the bottom of some Demoncrat scandal and the Demoncrats were having a ball. Having the time of their lives. Loving all the T.V. media attention! Finally, after days and weeks of “I can’t recall”, I don’t remember”, And giggling and laughing and lying under under oath, Senator Thompson had enough and banged down his gavel and said “These proceedings are closed.” I’m thinking that Sid “Vicious” Bloomenthal was one of the insolent punks involved.
so where is the NEWS here...
the US government has TURNED AGAINST ITS CITIZENS and discarded the CONSTITUTION...
isn’t that obvious
all the govenment agencies follow marching orders from the white house and i would say obama, but he is not running the show... Soros is..
the heavy handed bureaucrats seem to dummy up when asked very basic questions about their JOBS....
The DOJ/FBI ahs become an islamic apologist group, again putting the safety of citizens and national security secondary to the whims of C.A.I.R..
yep $$ talks and bs walks with this traitorous racist incompetent delusional regime...
obama should be on the no fly list...... and free spending michelle too
obama better learn to clean toilets cause that is about all he is good for, if even that..
“Until then this is nothing more than theater.”
ALL congressional hearings are theater. Other than Watergate, no hearings have ever accomplished anything except theater.
She looks familiar...
Rosanna Rosanndanna from SNL ? Pictures anyone ?
