Congress Approves Presidental Bombing And Killing Of American Citizens At Waco, TX
Millions Of Dollars In Salaries Wasted
McCain can’t be bothered to pay attention. Only what HE says matters.
Watched John Kerry & General Dempsey testify yesterday in the Senate. Both are braindead, IMHO!!! Kerry is lost at sea...and the good general does not want any part of this Obama fiasco!!! I sincerely hope the House members today tear these two incompetents to pieces. Any Congress Critter that votes to support Obama is the same traitor and America destroyer Obama is. Vote “No” and deny Obama approval to attack Syria!!! Obama and his failed “Arab Spring” have destroyed stability in the entire Middle East!!! Obama’s heart and soul lie with his beloved Muslim Brotherhood brethren and their blood allies, Al Qaeda, both sworn murderous enemies of the USA Obama is with them, not us, the USA!!!
The ‘march’ to war all to save the little hide of boy king barry.
Other questions: Is the credibility of Congress on the line and not Obama's? There have been other chemical attacks in recent history, "Does the US take unilateral action to punish governments and countries that use chemical weapons? The UN says the US needs their approval to carry out a military strike against Syria. Does it?
There's a bunch of them. I hope Tom Cotton gets a shot. He's an Iraq veteran.
Last hearing John Kerry and John McCain had a real butt fest. They dropped the formal greetings of Mr. Secretary and Senator McCain and sounded like they were at party.
(paraphrase) McCain: “John we’re glad you’re here to give us your testimony and delighted to see you have brought your lovely wife Teresa along”
“But I hope Teresa will forgive me for what I’m about to do to John”
Evedently, he got wrapped up with his ipad casino game because he forgot to do anything to his ol’ buddy John.
Under the First Moslem Tyrant by Fraud,
America is a country funded by taxpayers
which now exists ONLY to serve al Qaeda,
to defend al Qaeda, to arm al Qaeda (and narcoterrorists),
while everyone simply forgets about 911,
the Boston, and other al Qaeda-directed, Atrocities.
The "good general" is just an Obama tool who will do whatever the regime wants whether it is gays in the military or women in combat or a military strike in Syria. Dempsey is a disaster and one of the worst Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs in history. He is part of the problem.
Cotton supports military intervention.
Burn up the servers and the phone lines: NO Dying for Al Qaeda!

You are right on!!! Actually I hate General Dempsey!!! But...yesterday, after Rand Paul took that moron, John Kerry to the woodshed....Kerry tries to pass the ball to Dempsey, because Kerry could not handle Rand Paul. But.....Dempsey smirked and said, “No thanks, Mr, Secretary of State”!!! Both are incopetents in the highest order!!!
They even brought the red hands back. RT @bennyjohnson And Code Pink has already taken over the hearing room. pic.twitter.com/hjnfu6BPCU
“They lie beautifully, of course. I saw debates in Congress. A congressman asks Mr Kerry: ‘Is al Qaeda there?’ He says: ‘No, I am telling you responsibly that it is not’,” Putin said at a meeting of his human rights council in the Kremlin.
Which congressman asked Kerry that question?
I saw that as well. Dempsey is smart enough not to get involved when he doesn’t have to. He doesn’t want to piss off the Reps too much since he depends on them to defend his budget.
The U.S. does not NEED the approval of the U.N., ever. We are a sovereign nation. We make our own decisions. If the U.N. disagrees with our decision, they can use U.N. forces to try to stop us. We are not subject to their decisions.
The credibility of Congress is on the line because Obama put the decision before them to consider and make. So their previous resolutions on chemical weapons are relevant. Obama did draw a line.
With that said, I don’t want to spill American blood in a Syrian civil war. I don’t want to support Assad. I don’t want to support Al Qaeda.
At 11:58am they showed a group of Code Pink on CSPAN in the hearing room.
I don’t get it - why do they even allow them in to begin with? This has been going on since 9/11.
After two hour briefing, top ranking Armed Senate Cmte member Sen Jim Inhofe walks out, saying they haven't made an adequate case to him
Dunno. I zoned out.
I count 7 of those idiots in the picture. Does that mean all 7 will get themselves kicked out in the middle of the hearing?
There is NO CAUSUS BELI. It’s really just that simple.
The Obama Democrat ilk cannot even be on time to start the hearings. Shameful!!! Welll.....they are only following th the path set by their anti-American leader, Barack Hussein (I love my Muslim Bortherhood/AlQaeda Brethren) Obama. Congress Critters vote “No’!!!
I wish Kerry would pass up an opening statement and proceed directly to questions.
From the start:
The Hearing states that Assad wrought the WMD.
That is stated by Ed Royce (R).
Hearing started at 12:15pm. Kerry is there but Hagel and Dempsey’s seats are empty.
At least Royce is less long winded than Menendez was.
Perhaps Hagel and Dempsey are too busy to grace House members with their presence?
Code pink members are visible in background of shot of Kerry!
Had to turn it off as soon as that 28 year sinner from Mass state of idiots started spewing his spittle...
One question, Mr.Lizzard Tongue.........what has changed since your friendly intimate dinner with Assad in February 2009 and today? Just WTF has changed? Obviously you are confused about Assads character either then or now, which one?
The camera shot of Kerry is closer today than yesterday and makes him look even older.
Code pink holding blood red hands up behind Kerry.
There we go.. the red line defense. That didn’t take long.... no account Obama!!!
Has there ever been anyone more in love with the sound of his own voice than John Kerry?
Only audio here? Is he banging the table?
Male Code Pink member walked right behind Kerry with a sign and then left the room. He was close enough to Kerry he could’ve punched him before security would’ve done anything.
Neva......always trying to make eloquent speeches destined for history......
