I write on another website as an invited author – a site populated mostly by pseudo-intellectual liberals. Been there a couple of years. Most of my posts there are rants about the left and Obama, and the gelded Republicans in Congress. Those who comment on my writing are forever telling me to calm down, that I’m always too ‘outraged’. And they are probably right. That is why I will not post anything there about what took place in the Senate this week. I am filled to overflowing with outrage!
I’m speaking of Sen. Rand Paul’s filibuster on the senate floor about Obama’s plan to kill Americans on American soil with drones.
Now I ask you. How in the world can a man, who pretends to be a Constitutional scholar and professor even THINK that such an idea is within the limits of the law? [BTW – for anyone who doesn’t know – Obama was NOT a Harvard professor – he was a senior lecturer – big difference – huge.] Supported by his Attorney General, the mastermind behind Fast & Furious (another totally off the chart unconstitutional scheme that our Congress has swept under the carpet), Obama and his minions have come up with a plan to take out AMERICAN CITIZENS under SUSPICION of being terrorists. This is the same president who will NOT send the recently captured son-in-law of OBL to GTMO for interrogation. Does anyone see the dichotomy here?
I digress. My outrage. I watched as much of Sen. Paul’s talk as I could. He was not ranting or pounding his fists. He was pointing out the unconstitutionality of Obama’s drone plan and asking for someone in the executive branch to explain how it is permitted under the Constitution. He was joined on the Senate floor by other young conservatives like Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Ted Cruz. Even a Democrat senator, Ron Wyden, joined Paul in a show of support. The filibuster forced national attention on the drone plan, and finally Holder said it was unconstitutional.
Finally some Republicans were showing a backbone. Then that very night, Obama wined and dined 12 senior Republicans at the Jefferson Hotel in D.C. Upon leaving that dinner, Sen. John McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham took to the microphones and chastised Sen. Paul for the filibuster. WHAT. THE. FUCK!
The opening paragraphs of an article in the Washington Examiner this morning said:
Elder Sen. John McCain, who this week engaged in friendly fire when he launched his "maverick" missiles at fellow Republicans seeking clarification on the administration's drone policies, has upped the ante, deriding Tea Party-backed GOP lawmakers as "wacko birds."
McCain, who hit the Senate floor Thursday to belittle Sen. Rand Paul's filibuster, which succeeded in getting an answer from President Obama that drones won't be used to kill Americans on U.S. soil, even suggested that the Kentucky senator and his allies, like Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, don't represent the GOP mainstream.
"It's always the wacko birds on right and left that get the media megaphone," McCain told Huffington Post's Jon Ward in a story titled "John McCain: Getting Back To Maverick, With An Eye On Retirement."
THE HUFFINGTON POST! ROFLMAO! An unbiased story? Not in this lifetime! McCain said the likes of Paul, Cruz, Amash, etc. were not reflective of the views of the majority of Republicans.
THIS FROM THE MAN WHO GAVE US BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA!
TWEEDLE DEE AND TWEEDLE DUMB
Well on that, I can agree! On that, it’s damn time the Republicans turned to the views of the Tea Party if we want to save this country!!! If you want to see outrage, read the comments in the assorted news stories about ‘Maverick John McCain’s action.’ It’s time to get rid of RINO John McCain and his butt-boy Lindsey Graham (who is posturing about Benghazi because he’s up for re-election in 2014) and all the other RINO's in Congress.
It’s time to clean the House….. and the Senate!
