Lindsey Graham: As President I Would Deploy The Military Against Congress

 

 

 

 

” Republican senator and presidential maybe-hopeful Lindsey Graham stopped by the “politics and pies” forum in Concord, New Hampshire, today, where he announced that if he is elected president in 2016, his first act will be to deploy the military in Washington to force Congress to reverse cuts to the defense and intelligence budgets.

  Yes, you heard that right. Here are Graham’s exact words:

  And here’s the first thing I would do if I were president of the United States. I wouldn’t let Congress leave town until we fix this. I would literally use the military to keep them in if I had to. We’re not leaving town until we restore these defense cuts. We are not leaving town until we restore the intel cuts.

  Graham would use the military to force members of Congress to not just vote on the bill — but to pass it. Graham didn’t say “until I get an up-or-down vote on restoring defense cuts.” He said “until we restore these defense cuts.”  

  In other words, Graham is proposing that his first act as president would be to use the military to force the legislative branch to pass his agenda.”

 

 

   The only bright spot in Graham’s admission of his Statist proclivities is the fact that there will never be a Graham administration but that shouldn’t stop the republicans of South Carolina from attempting a recall if state law provides  , or at the very least primarying him out of office next election cycle … What an embarrassment … Vox has the whole story

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dems Vow To Protect Boehner From Conservative Coup

 

 

 

” Tea Party Republicans contemplating a bid to oust Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) shouldn’t count on Democrats to help them unseat the Speaker.

  And without their support, there is no chance to topple Boehner in this Congress.

  A number of right-wing Republicans, long wary of Boehner’s commitment to GOP efforts attacking President Obama’s policy priorities, have openly considered a coup in an attempt to transfer the gavel into more conservative hands.

  But Democrats from across an ideological spectrum say they’d rather see Boehner remain atop the House than replace him with a more conservative Speaker who would almost certainly be less willing to reach across the aisle in search of compromise. Replacing him with a Tea Party Speaker, they say, would only bring the legislative process — already limping along — to a screeching halt.”

 

 

     Who exactly does this ***hole represent ? Not the republican party that’s for sure … not when his “opponents” promise to watch his six . The fact that Pelosi and co. would prefer to work with Boehner should tell you all you need to know about where that man’s loyalties lie … Read on at the Hill

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Disgruntled Right Wing Keeps Boehner Coup Talk Alive

 

 

 

 

” Tea Party conservatives failed to oust Speaker John Boehner last month, but they’re threatening to try again if the Ohio Republican caves in the fight against President Obama’s immigration actions.

  While there’s not a coordinated effort yet, chatter of another coup attempt has grown louder now that the Senate is moving to pass a funding bill to avert a shutdown of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) without the immigration riders.

  Conservatives on and off Capitol Hill are pressuring Boehner not to relent unless Democrats agree to gut Obama’s executive orders protecting millions of illegal immigrants from deportation.

  But Boehner and his allies are concerned that partially closing one of the top national security agencies could do lasting damage to the party.

  Some of the 25 Republicans who tried to strip the Speaker’s gavel from Boehner on the House floor in January are having informal discussions about ways they might overthrow him if he brings a clean bill to the floor, according to one conservative lawmaker who voted against Boehner in January.

“ I think the political repercussions both for him and the Speakership are going to be pretty substantial,” said another House conservative, who spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the issue. “He knows that it would be a big political mistake, and he doesn’t want to throw away all of his political capital on this.” “

   This article from the Hill is just dripping with condescension towards the “right wing Tea Party” conservatives , who by the way , most closely embody the political beliefs of the founding fathers , starting with the title but even so it paints an accurate picture of the dissatisfaction growing in the non-establishment wing of the GOP .

 

Does History Tell Us Why Obama’s Been Firing Senior Military Officers

 

 

” In recent months Obama has ended the careers of General Carter Ham USA, Rear Adm. Charles M. Gaouette USN, General John Allen USMC, General William Ward USA, General James Mad Dog Mattis USMC.

Then there were Generals Billy McChrystal and David Petraeus who made big headlines when they had their talks with the Commander in Chief..

There are a number of rumors circulating that almost all of these officers had questioned the Presidents, intentions, methods, integrity or truthfulness.

There was a recent article by Reaganite Republican ^  on freerepublic.com stating the the Russian’s believe the Obama Administration is terrified of Officiers who take their oath to support the Constitution seriously…. because put bluntly those officers pose a threat to his ability to rule by Unconstitutional Executive Fiat

Russian Military Intel Tells Kremlin Obama Fired Military Officers Because He ‘Fears a Coup’

According to (shadowy anonymous blogger) Sorcha Faal the Russian military’s GRU foreign intelligence unit presented a report to Kremlin leadership late last month that said Obama removed one of the United States Navy’s most powerful admirals from his command (in the wake of Benghazi 9/11) specifically because he fears a military coup is being planned against him.”
