Treason in the United States Senate

When asked about the “National Popular Vote Interstate Compatct (NPV), US Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell reacted by calling it a “genuine threat to our country”.    NPV, guarantees that whichever candidate wins the popular vote of the American public would guarantee a win in the Electoral College.  This puts to rest a repeat of the Gore v. Bush Debacle in 2000.  It’s a return to the United States Constitution’s guarantee of “one man – one vote”.  However, Senator McConnell completely disagrees with it beyond calling it intriguing.

MCCONNELL: Hosting this seminar on the most important issue [the National Popular Vote proposal] in America nobody’s talking about. Everybody’s following the debt crisis in Europe, the presidential election in America, unemployment statistics, but nobody is paying much attention to the genuine threat to our country. That’s what I want to address this morning.

Let’s remember that this isn’t the first time the Senator has been at odds with our Constitution.  In July 2011, he declared on the Senate flor that we must “rewrite the Consistution” by adding an amendment permanently entrenching a Tea Party police agenda because “elections” haven’t “worked”.

How odd is this current state of affairs?  I mean, if President Barack Obama happened on the idea to rewrite the Constitution and “popular votes would be a threat to our country”, do you think he’ll get some air-time on Fox News?

Fox News re: Bowe Bergdahl: Save Us The Headache, Let The Taliban Kill Him

While admitting to not knowing all of the facts, Fox News political pundit Ralph Peters goes into full attack mode by accusing Private Bergdahl for everything including”colluding with the enemy” and “abandoning his post” (AWOL).  vomitAt the end, not willing to leave well enough alone, Peters makes his final point by saying the Taliban should save us the legal expenses and do us a favor (and execute him).

Keeping it classy, huh Fox?  You wave that Red, White and Blue flag that proudly?

There used to be something about “innocent until proven guilty”.  But that was old school.  Now, we’ve got Fox!
