The Amnesty Twins disgrace themselves yet again.
I am disgusted. John McCain and Lindsey Graham are despicable, and must be run out of office. Here’s why.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) led a 13-hour filibuster against the confirmation of CIA nominee John Brennan yesterday, in response to a merely to try and get an answer to a single question for Barack Obama and Eric Holder: “Does the president have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on an American soil?”
This followed a stunning comment from Attorney General Eric Holder suggesting that the president has authority to use drone strikes to kill Americans on US soil – without trial or even arrest.
“The president could conceivably have no choice but to authorize the military to use such force if necessary to protect the homeland,” Mr Holder said.
Americans from across the political spectrum were rightly outraged by Holder’s statement, and Democrats, Republicans and Libertarians alike praised Paul for his filibuster, once Holder and Obama refused to answer his simple question. Even left-wing media outlets criticized most Senate Democrats for not participating in the filibuster in defense of civil liberties.
Joining Paul were 15 of his Senate colleagues, including Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT) and one Democrat, Ron Wyden (D-OR) – all demanding an answer to Paul’s question. And today the question was finally answered, as Holder reversed himself, through White house Spokesmouth Jay Carney said: “The answer is no” – a clear reversal of Holder’s prior statement, and a victory for all Americans who do not blindly trust their government to safeguard their civil liberties.
But according to John McCain and Lindsay Graham, the question should not even have been asked.
They attacked Sen. Paul for his filibuster. McCain called Paul’s question and filibuster “ridiculous“; that it was merely a “politcal stunt” to ”fire up impressionable libertarian kids in their college dorms”.
Graham was even worse. To Paul, his colleagues and outraged Americans demanding to know if the president believed he had the authority to drone-kill citizens on U.S. soil, Graham said the question “offended” him and that “I do not believe that question deserves an answer.”
And where were the amnesty-pimping twins while the epic filibuster was ongoing? With Obama, of course. McCain and Graham were dining with the President whose A.G. had claimed drone-kill authority.
Just as the two had lunch with Obama on the very day DHS released thousands of criminal illegal aliens onto American streets – which outraged millions of Americans and most of the Republican party – but curiously did not seem to bother McCain or Graham one bit. They merely said:
“We had an excellent meeting with the president and the vice president this afternoon during which we discussed our effort to pass comprehensive immigration reform legislation this year. We were pleased to hear the president state his firm commitment that he will do whatever is necessary to accomplish this important goal.”
No concern about criminal aliens on the loose after a lawless release by Obama’s DHS. No concern whatsoever about the civil liberties of Americans amid the introduction of weaponized Federal drones in this nation.
Do these poor excuses for public servants represent you? They sure don’t represent me. Arizona conservatives had a chance to ditch McCain in 2010, but failed by putting forward a deeply-flawed, infomercial huckster against him in the primary, whom McCain dispatched by unethically using millions in leftover 2008 Presidential funds to thrash his opponent in spending 20:1. We won’t get another shot until 2016.
But we don’t have to wait long at all to fire the disgusting Lindsay Graham – he is up in 2014. Let’s make sure it is his last term in any office.
To remind you of just how vile Graham is, let’s recall his appearance in front of the racist pressure group National Council of La Raza (“The Race”) during the last amnesty battle (which he lost) in 2007. Here is Graham telling La Raza how he would deal with YOU, who want the rule of law upheld on immigration…
