War vote on Syria looms for White House hopefuls

Big Eagle 1I have several things to say about this coming debacle in Syria and I am basing my words on the stories contained herein.

First there is this:

War vote on Syria looms for White House hopefuls

WASHINGTON (AP) – Backing President Barack Obama’s plea for military action against Syria could haunt Senate Republicans thinking hard about a White House bid in 2016.

Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, a leading anti-interventionist within the GOP ranks, was steadfast in his opposition on Tuesday, saying he was unlikely to back even a narrow resolution giving Obama the authority to respond militarily to the Syrian government. SOURCE

Then there is this:

Boehner’s aboard: Obama gains Syria-strike support

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama gained ground Tuesday in his drive for congressional backing of a military strike against Syria, winning critical support from House Speaker John Boehner while administration officials agreed to explicitly rule out the use of U.S. combat troops in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack.

“You’re probably going to win” Congress’ backing, Rand Paul of Kentucky, a conservative senator and likely opponent of the measure, conceded in a late-afternoon exchange with Secretary of State John Kerry. SOURCE

First and foremost; the United States Senate and Congress need to made fully aware; YOU work for us, YOU are our elected representative and YOU are sent to Washington, D.C. to do the *WILL OF THE PEOPLE*, not to vote YOUR conscience.

I addressed this to MY Congressman, Pete Sessions, and I hope he’s pounding the drum, long and loud.

You know, somehow I see retirement in the near future of any Congressional or Senate members that vote with Obama on this. If the Congress and Senate allow Obama get by with this they need to be turned over, ANY and ALL that side with Obama, Democrat, GOP, Independent, whatever the case may be, FIRED!

The American people do NOT want the USA to do anything in Syria and Pete, some of your colleagues need to remember that they represent We, The People and We, The People put em there. We can make them go away too.

My God I hope your colleagues are smarter than that.

We, The People are being fed a line of CRAP by the Obama regime, all of them, each and every one of Obama’s cohorts and his allies within the GOP too.

Kerry: Strikes not about Obama’s red line

WASHINGTON (AP) – Secretary of State John Kerry says the debate about military strikes against Syria is not about President Barack Obama’s “red line” that weapons of mass destruction cannot be tolerated.

Instead, Kerry told Congress Tuesday that “this debate is about the world’s red line.” He says it is “a red line that anyone with a conscience ought to draw.” SOURCE

I realize John Kerry served many years in the U.S. Senate, I guess his Massachusetts electorate was as dumb and arrogant as HE appears to be.

Not about Obama’s *red line* remark? Are you serious?

This whole thing is about Barack Hussein Obama and his desire to make himself look somewhat like a leader, to look macho and Presidential. Don’t try to tell me otherwise.

And just for the record, the United States of America has weapons of mass destruction, we have nuclear weapons, and personally, I am OK with that, but consider this; we, the USA, are the only nation on earth to ever use those nuclear weapons, and we used them twice.

Again, I am OK with that use of nuclear weapons to end WWII, only God knows how many American lives were saved, but the point is this, John Kerry is an arrogant. Pompous and sanctimonious ASS and he is doing the bidding of Barack Hussein Obama in this.

I am sending this post to Pete Sessions, Ted Cruz and John Cornyn; they are MY elected officials and are the only ones I can exert any influence upon. I suggest that YOU send it along to YOUR elected officials, and I don’t buy into the CRAP about “Well, my Congressman is a Democrat and won’t listen”, that is a crock, they listen, and when their seat is on the line they listen closely.

I have great confidence in my Texas crew, if you can’t say that about YOUR elected officials then YOU need to get busy and replace them!

No excuses, America is on the line here; Obama and Company will bring Her down if We, The People sit back watching TV and not involving ourselves in the government the WE elected.

    Wake up people, we are losing America………….it takes only a minute or two to message on FB, or email, or even call your Congress person!

    • TexasFred says:

      A message on Facebook is a waste of time, you are preaching to the choir.. Facebook is a SOCIAL network and it’s great to message your friends but your friends are most likely pretty well politically aligned with you already..

      Messages, letters, faxes, emails and personal conversation with the elected officials is the ONLY way we become effective…

      Facebook is a joke except for some syndication.. Our politicians don’t read YOUR wall…

    You are right on this, Fred, in every word. I want to state that I am not even close to being an expert in world affairs, but I am 100% convinced that to involve the US in Syria would be the biggest mistake this country could make. Congress is being suckered in to believing Obama’s lies just like the American voters were last November. If they vote to do ANYTHING in Syria it will be time to get rid of every single person with a yes vote.

  3. Fred you and I disagree on very little if anything on most political issues……but lets go ahead and face the reality of Syria and Obamy and his “RED LINE” or as I prefer to call it, Obama’s transparent red line in the sand….They very Red-Line Obama vowed that he wod not allow Assad Bassard to cross without first facing the consequences of the MIGHTY UNITED STATES MILITARY….correction, the once Strongest Military on the planet…The very same MILITARY that HUSSEIN Obama has castrated.

    Just a few short weeeks ago Obama pounded his chest like GODZILLA standing atop the empire state building telling the world that Assad would answer to Obama if he crossed that now famous “RED LINE”… well Allegedlly Assad crossed the line and gassed his people, or did he?

    John Kerry said there is definite proof? Where is the proof? Show tbe American people the truth please..I do not believe John Kerry or Obama….something stinks in River City…

    Why did Obama suddenly put on the brakes and request Congressional approval? That is not
    Husseins style, he wants to go solo but I believe that something happened to “SPOOK” him…

    I believe that he did so to be able to wash his hands of the whole mess should anything go wrong……with Congressional approval he has the opening to blame others by saying he just did what congress wanted…….

    I am just to skeptical. …there is no truth in his words, Benghazi, Fast & Furious, IRS and NSA
    And the rest of his damn lies…

    Again something stinks…..sorry for the long ramnling rant, but it is what it is…

    I think the fix is in on the vote. Hope I’m wrong. Hey, Fred, can you reblog the post below and/or pass it along to your vet & LEO pals? Thanks:

    And my congressman is demented McCain. MUCH talk around town today about starting a recall on him as has been started on Graham in SC. We are so screwed here in Arizona.

    • TexasFred says:

      I agree, McCain is a senile old bastard that is long past his expiration date, but McCain is your Senator, not your Congressman..

      If AZ is so screwed, change it… Don’t cry about being *screwed*, do something about it…

  6. abigail says:

    I have a sinking feeling that ovama will get his vote. Kerry said the administration has no intention of sending American ground troops to Syria “with respect to the civil war.” Which leaves the door open for ‘other reasons’.
    It feels as if we are all being manipulated and steamrollered. All this talk yet no concrete proof. Just over and over the same story till people start to believe it without question. It’s happening already.
    So what happens if the Senate votes yes and the House votes no?
    If we get involved in this mess, especially without international participation, we will never be the same as a country again. And obama will win.

  7. Bunkerville says:

    I called my senators and rep office yesterday. They could have cared less. They never even took my name. I followed up with an e mail to all. I guess the B team was at work. I can only hope.

  8. Elizabeth says:

    I am so tired of politics and all their te ta te for fodder. At this point Obama will do as he pleases but he is taking counsel from of all sickos “Putin!” To make it worse the rhinos do not know their heinies from their faces! More political chaos. Are we going to survive until Obama leaves? When he does will we survive whoever is in office then? I shudder when I think about how everyday our options are going down, down, and down…..

  9. Petermc3 says:

    The congress still has no idea they are Obama’s default go to for approval since neither our allies, the U.N. or anyone else will back him. The liberals, progressives and RINOS have all come to their senses and have now thrown their support to their god of war Obama. America’s credibility has been pissed away by this traitorous president five years ago and therefore has no place in this debate. He almost makes one long for Jimmy Carter who at least admitted his heart was full of lust…ha ha.
