Surprise vote TODAY: Pelosi to homosexualize military...Senate may vote Friday
AIPNews.com ^ | Dec. 15, 2010

Posted on 12/15/2010 10:00:25 AM PST by EternalVigilance

The New York Times is reporting Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) may force a sudden vote today, Wednesday, on the floor of the House of Representatives to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell and force open homosexual aggression upon our troops against their will.  But Marine Corps General James Amos immediately condemned the vote as costing lives:  "When your life hangs on a line on the intuitive behavior of the young man that sits to your right and your left, you don’t want anything distracting that."

-----

The Senate may vote in less than 72 hours.  The Senate may vote by this Friday to homosexualize the military, now that RINO Senator Dick Lugar (R-IN, 202-224-4814) has stated through his spokesman that he's "leaning" toward changing his vote to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." According to The Wonk Room blog, Sen. Lugar's spokesperson Mark Helmke said the Senator is willing to stay past Christmas to debate the issue. Asked if he would vote for cloture if Reid extended the session and provided more time for debate, Helmke said Lugar is "leaning that way."  According to an email entitled "Senators caving in to pro-homosexual pressure!" our friend Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel also reports Senator Mike Enzi (R-WY, 202-224-3424) has recently waffled on the issue, and may vote pro-homosexual, to the surprise of many.

With 3 other Republicans now openly hinting toward repeal, Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME, 202-224-2523), Scott Brown (R-MA, 202-224-4543) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK, 202-224-6665), our troops may lose a 62-38 cloture vote, and be forced to quit or violate their Christian morals, sharing common sleeping quarters and showers with openly aggressive homosexuals, against the will of 91% of our troops. Already 24% of polled troops, over one half million, said they will quit the service

Time is expiring.  Unless Sen. Harry Reid extends the session, this Friday is the final day of the Lame Duck session of the Senate.  That means the vote may come sooner than we're prepared.  And we have zero margin of error.  Everybody please call Lugar, Enzi, Brown, and Murkowski right now, and say these words:  "Please filibuster Senate Bill 4022 and stop the homosexualization of our military, or we will score your vote and fax it to every Christian pastor in your state, and donate to your primary opponent next election."

Majority Leader Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) filed a Rule 14 motion Tuesday, waiving our troops right to have any committee review the new fast-tracked bill S.4022 that bypasses debate or hearings, and repeals the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law.  The new bill forces open homosexual aggression on our troops against the will of 91% of our troops, using the same language that failed a cloture vote last week by 40-57 (thank God) in the Pentagon budget, but now rears its head again as an ugly "stand-alone" bill. 

Also in breaking news Tuesday morning, Politico.com reported House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) and Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-PA), were expected to introduce stand-alone "don't ask, don't tell" repeal legislation on Tuesday in the House of Representatives, according to three sources actively involved in repeal discussions.  Politico also quoted a blog in which a Senate aide said one scenario being mulled would be to ask the House to pass repeal again and send the Senate a so-called "message" asking for a vote. That would circumvent various procedural hurdles.  We must jump into action today.

Republican traitor Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME, 202-224-2523), has already co-sponsored the bill, but if we lose Scott Brown (R-MA, 202-224-4543) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK, 202-224-6665), who each hinted they will vote to homosexualize our military, that makes the whip-count 60, and our troops will lose. Other key Senators include Mark Kirk (R-IL, 202-224-2854), John Ensign (R-NV, 202-224-6244), Olympia Snowe (R-ME, 202-224-5344), Richard Lugar (R-IN, 202-224-4814), George Voinovich (R-OH, 202-224-3353), James Webb (D-VA, 202-224-4024), Joe Manchin (D-WV, 202-224-3954), Mark Pryor (D-AR, 501-324-6336 and 202-224-2353) and outgoing Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR, 501-375-2993 and 202-224-4843).  So please call all 12 today to please FILIBUSTER AND VOTE AGAINST repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

There's the list.  14 phone calls.  How many can you call RIGHT NOW?

The RATs hate the military and this is just one undeniable example.
Clinton having Marines serve drinks was another.

Ah crap, I figured they wouldn't let this go. If they don't get repeal now they will have to wait years for it, and maybe forever.

BTW, pro-homo trolls are surely on the way to this thread even as we speak. Pop some popcorn and hope for a good zot show!

Its going to take several cans of voting booth WhoopAss to fumigate the House and Senate. Our lords and masters just don’t get it or don’t think it can happen to them.

Hell the military folks might beat you to it, either way if they pass that bill it will be the last Hurrah for the Democrats, The democrats will fall apart faster then their stand on Shy's Hill in the Battle of Nashville. The issue might bring forth our next Civil War in America.

“The issue might bring forth our next Civil War in America.”

It might. At a minimum it will disrupt the military when doing so isn’t necessary.

This is insanity. The costs of AIDS treatment alone are astronomical. I have suspected since the beginning that Obama’s real agenda is to weaken our military. There is nothing more damaging he could do than mandate homosexuality in our military barracks and showers. This is one of the most disgraceful acts in Congress ever.

2. New Defense Bill Introduced: A new defense bill has been introduced that omits some controversial provisions that held up the passage of the previous version — mainly the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and military hospital abortions. HR 6523 will provide $725 billion in funding on a range of items, to include war funding and weapons systems modernization programs, as well as extend Tricare healthcare coverage to dependent children up to age 26, and provide a 1.4% across-the-board military pay raise. The defense bill is expected to be voted on before the 111th Congress adjourns. For a full summary of the bill, go to the House Armed Services Committee website at http://armedservices.house.gov/index.cfm/press-releases?ContentRecord_id=47290df4-6149-481c-97dc-7d35f8c3f308.

So far, so good except for this: "as well as extend Tricare healthcare coverage to dependent children up to age 26

At age 26, one is usually considered an adult. :)

This is the dhimmiocrap’s way of ruling the country.
Treachery, tricks and craps....
It should be highlighted again and again so that people should be more and more angry and fed up by the liberal scums
