Skip to comments.John McCain’s attack on liberty
Posted on 03/19/2010 3:49:10 AM PDT by rabscuttle385
Anyone paying attention knows that John McCain has been a Big-Government Globalist Neocon (BGGN) for virtually his entire senatorial career. As with many BGGNs hiding out in the Republican Party, McCain likes to talk about smaller government, but his track record is littered with the promotion of one big government program after another. But, what else would one expect from a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)?
Lately, however, McCain has outdone himself. He has introduced two bills in the US Senate that are about as Machiavellian as they could be. I am referring to S.3081, a bill that would authorize the federal government to detain American citizens indefinitely without trial, and S.3002, a bill that would authorize the federal government to regulate vitamins, minerals, and virtually all health and natural food products.
According to Examiner.com, Last week, John McCain introduced a bill into the U.S. Senate which, if passed, would actually allow U.S. citizens to be arrested and detained indefinitely, all without Miranda rights or ever being charged with a crime.
The Examiner report continued by saying This bill, introduced by McCain, who despite overwhelming evidence, claims to be a conservative, would not only take away our right to a trial, but would also allow the federal government to arrest and imprison anyone the current administration deems hostile.
Of course, that would be the same administration whose Homeland Security Secretary has classified veterans, retired law enforcement, Ron Paul [and Chuck Baldwin] supporters, and conservatives as terrorists.
The Examiner report concluded by saying If it was not clear before, it should be now that John McCain has as little respect for the Constitution as he does for our borders.
If Juan McCain gets his way, your constitutional right to a speedy trial by jury is gone, as well as your constitutional right to Habeas Corpus. But, of course, they would attempt to justify this by claiming it is being done in the name of national security and the war on terrorism.
See the Examiner report at:
Regarding McCains desire for the federal government to take over the vitamin industry, attorney Jonathan Emord wrote, If you had any doubt about whether John McCain is a limited government conservative, you may put that doubt to resthe is not. On February 3, 2010, John McCain introduced to the United States Senate the Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010. Reflecting upon this poorly written bill, I am struck by the fact that John McCain apparently sees little difference between fissile material and dietary supplements. He is intent on regulating supplements as if they were radioactive enriched uranium rather than bioactive vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and botanicals that more often than not help people.
The Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010 enjoys support from the most liberal members of Congress. It is an invitation for the FDA to assume broad new powers and replicate here the system now operating in Europe over dietary supplements where dietary ingredients are presumed adulterated and unlawful to sell unless pre-approved by the government. In short, good bye free enterprise, good bye limited government, and hello more heavy handed, arbitrary and punitive FDA bias against the beleaguered dietary supplement industry.

Please remember, this is the same John McCain that, during the 2008 Presidential campaign, said he would order the secretary of the treasury to immediately buy up the bad home loan mortgages in America. Of course, McCain didnt explain where this authority would come from, because such a proposal has no legal or constitutional authority. And, by the way, this one little sentence, if implemented, would cost taxpayers some $300 billion.
McCain also said he wanted to tap Mr. Climate Change Wacko himself, Al Gore, to work in his administration on developing a new and much tougher U.N.-sponsored global warming treaty.

This is the same John McCain who addressed the Hoover Institution on May 1, 2007, and said if he were elected President, he would create a new international organization known as The League of Democracies (LD).
In advancing the LD, McCain said, We should go further and start bringing democratic peoples and nations from around the world into one common organization, a worldwide League of Democracies. He then added, The new League of Democracies would form the core of an international order . . .
See McCains speech to the Hoover Institution at:
If McCain and his CFR buddies get their way, this new LD would be a United Nations on steroids! As I said all over America on the campaign trail in 2008, John McCain is a globalist. Of course, so is Barack Obama. In fact, every President since (and including) George H.W. Bush has been a full-fledged, rotten-to-the-core globalist.
And, yes, this is the same Juan McCain who is one of the primary movers and shakers (along with Obama, Lindsey Graham, and G.W. Bush) attempting to provide amnesty to illegal aliens and open Americas borders to illegal immigration.
And now McCain wants the federal government to take over the vitamin industry, and he wants to give the federal government the power to jail American citizens indefinitely without trial.
The citizens of Arizona can do the American peopleand liberty itselfa great favor this year by giving Senator John McCain his walking papers. Big-Government dinosaurs like McCain are an albatross around the neck of freedom and constitutional government. If we dont send them packing now, the shackles they put around our throats will become insufferable.
This bill, introduced by McCain, who despite overwhelming evidence, claims to be a conservative, would not only take away our right to a trial, but would also allow the federal government to arrest and imprison anyone the current administration deems hostile.Dang, there's that word DEEM again.
Approximately half the voters chose 0bama. Approximately half the Congress supports progressive-liberal-socialist transformation of America. Approximately half the Supreme Court likewise. Approximately 50 million babies have been massacred, and Terri Schindler too.
But it’s too soon to quit marching into the cattle cars and resist violently. Okay. After all, the train could be headed for Disneyland.
For these two bills alone McCain should be kicked OUT
The supplement regulation bill shows what poor judgment McCain exercises. After hearings that discussed drug and supplement abuse by athletes, Nanny Stater Juan decided the entire supplement industry needed to be regulated, which would affect every man, woman and child in the US who uses any sort of food supplements.
This Nanny Stater definitely needs to be retired.
Anyone paying attention knows that John McCain has been a Big-Government Globalist Neocon (BGGN) for virtually his entire senatorial career.
No sorry, McInsane is not a 'Neocon'. McNutz is a 'progressive'. So he'd be a BGGP.
And a progressive (cough) 'republican' is worse than a Neocon. As Neocnos run for the hills when their plans don't work out(1) and switch supporting a party like we change socks.
But the the 'progressive' is insidious, just like a cancer. At first benign, then they slowly grow until they fully metastasize, taking over other areas of the body (party). Lindsey Graham is another 'progressive' and look at the damage he's trying to do in consort with Obama.
(1) Like little Billy Krystal and his ilk abandoning Dubya as soon as the going got tough in Iraq. Before we attacked he cried for war almost daily, then -- oh that was a bad idea. And where is that snake in the grass Neocon Richard Perle these days? Which rock has he crawled under?
“Dang, there’s that word DEEM again. “
Almost DEEMonic, ain’t it?
“But the the ‘progressive’ is insidious, just like a cancer. At first benign, then they slowly grow until they fully metastasize, taking over other areas of the body (party). Lindsey Graham is another ‘progressive’ and look at the damage he’s trying to do in consort with Obama. “
Hey Condor, that was a good rip!
As for Pearle, he is making millions brokering oil that by all measures, belongs to us.
J. D. Hayworth for Senate.
Chuck Baldwin, seriously????? A truther???? Wow, McCain is awful but using a Baldwin piece to say so is laughable.
Yes, we all get that you hate McCain, rab, because you never post a thread that doesn't have a tie to the man.
I don't think I'm alone in wondering why you never go after the real enemy....Obama and his thugs? Very suspicious...
As to Perle, I've seen Liz mention that. And if it's true, as it apparently seems, then Perle should be Strung up by the gonads. AFTER all his ill gotten gains have been confiscated and given BACK to the American people.
Our Heroes didn't give all so that slime bag son of a beech could make millions. Especially since Perle was the main provocateur in egging Rummy on into invading Iraq.
So what Perle's reaping in, or will be, in Oil Money, is BLOOD MONEY pure and simple. (I really, really, REALLY - detest that (blank)!
The RINOs that are aiding and abetting Obama are just as much an enemy to a conservative as the liberal Democrats themselves.
Only Party Firsters like yourself are unable to make the distinction, since your definition of "enemy" is based merely on political party affiliation rather than ideology and steadfastness of purpose.
Maybe you should try actually reading my posting history.
Counter-example to shoot down your claim:
Yeah, Liz nailed Pearle but good. A so-called “Neo-Con.....just a blood-sucking opportunist/rat.
