Cowards in Congress

If your Senator(s) is (are) on the list of those who voted, in violation of their oath of office, for telecom immunity for aiding, abetting and conspiring to violate the law and the U.S. Constitution, you may wish to call them, write them, tell them they will not be re-elected. Here's the list. If they voted "Nay" call them, vote them out of office, ask them if they deliberately lied when they took their most recent oath of office; if not, why not in their view.

Here's a letter from a patriotic American (Rep. John Conyers ( D.- Mich.), House Judiciary Committee Chair, asking questions which should have been asked before Nancy Pelosi (D-Cal.), Steny Hoyer (D.-Md.), and Harry Reid (D-Nev.) exhibited their profiles in cowardice last August and approved a violation of the U.S. Constitution because they could not be bothered to delay their vacation to ask a few questions.

Briefs

  • House Approves Contempt Citations Against Bolten, Miers. The Republicans, of course, walk out of the chamber in a petulant fit at this moment of honesty.
  • You heard of Infragard, a joint venture of the FBI and private entities? Me either. Its supposed to protect our infrastructure. Sounds fishy to me. Fringe players on the Internet are both riled and scared; the MSM hasn't had a thing to say about it that I can find.
  • McCain is eligible to be president, even though he was born to American citizens on a naval base in Panama:
    "Some might define the term "natural-born citizen" as one who was born on United States soil. But the First Congress, on March 26, 1790, approved an act that declared, "The children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond sea, or outside the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural-born citizens of the United States." That would seem to include McCain, whose parents were both citizens and whose father was a Navy officer stationed at the U.S. naval base in Panama at the time of John's birth in 1936."
