Senator John McCain — a footsoldier in the Reagan Revolution? LOL! Joke of the century! If it was Reagan, it wasn’t President Ronald Reagan, late leader of the party of freedom. McCain’s a purebred freedom-robbing Progressive.
And Senator Jeff Flake — limited-government Libertarian? LOL! A self-described conservative reformer? Get outa town! ROFL!
These two imposters joined with 62 other Progressives in the Senate in an attempt to force businesses and ministries to hire cross dressers and drag queens. They voted for the homosexual dream bill, ENDA, Thursday. It’s the Employment Non-Discrimination Act — which will force employers and churches under threat of huge federal fines to hire people who perceive their gender isn’t the one they were born with. Try to dismiss one of them from your employ and you’ll have the full weight of the U.S. government on your back.
Flake pulled a bait-and-switch. He voted against ENDA on a procedural vote Monday, then turned coat and voted for it Thursday. The radical progressive bill passed the Senate 64-32.
But as we pointed out earlier in the week, House Speaker John Boehner will dropkick this horrible, freedom-stealing bill to the moon where it belongs. It won’t see the light of day in the House.
And as for the false self-portrayals of McCain and his shadow, Flake, they can tell it to the moon as well. They are not part of the solution in Washington. They are poster boys for all the problems in Washington, and our state delegation in the U.S. Senate is a lost cause. Let freedom ring. Let our elected officials fight Obama, Reid, and Pelosi, et al, not agree with them on hideous, radical extreme homeland make-overs.
We’re glad to see U.S. Senator Jeff Flake correct a past mistake Monday and vote against the radical Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). As a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives, he previously voted for the homosexual activists’ pet legislation.
On the other hand, Senator John McCain wimped out and declined to vote at all. Probably because his wife had signed a petition to him to support it. But not voting against an evil bill is not taking a stand of integrity. We would prefer to see McCain vote against ENDA and help educate people against its exceedingly high potential for persecution of Christians and business owners.
In fact, while the Senate refuses to produce a budget or take steps to strengthen America’s business climiate, it prefers instead to reward radical special interests, including the homosexual lobby, Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and others. The Senate passed ENDA 61-30.
Fortunately, the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, said he will not give it a vote in his chamber.
This bill would force businesses and ministries to hire misfits and sexually confused people who do not support their goals and missions. Refuse to hire them, or to fire them, could result in ruinous lawsuits.
All the revolutionaries who want to radically reshape America favor this bill, which gets repeatedly shot down in Congress. It’s time the radicals — and the Senate — let it go. Americans do not want ENDA; they have shown it clearly again and again. Harry Reid, let’s get on with the nation’s important business and end this Mickey Mouse ENDA malarkey once and for all.
Dear Senator John McCain:
Three years ago you told us we HAD to re-elect you to carry on the people’s business in the United States Senate.
But just this week you told a reporter you were “a leetle bit bored” during a Senate session, so you resorted to ignoring an important debate and engaging in online gambling on your smart phone.
Senator, if the work of the Senate is too boring for you, we suggest you step aside and retire so a more engaged person who takes the responsibilities of a United States Senator more seriously can take your place. Current Rep. David Schweikert is such a person.
Perhaps you only take re-election to the U.S. Senate seriously.
As one of the senior Republican senators in Washington, your constituents expect to see you among the leadership of the opposition to the big government, freedom-killing, anti-life radicals in the Obama Administration and their friends in Congress. As defenders of the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law, we are doing our part as citizens to defend and preserve this republic. You need to do yours. Or yield to someone who will, if you prefer not the take the remainder of your term seriously.
You can either occupy a seat and continue to be a part of the problem in Washington, OR you can stand up, speak out and be part of the solution. Please decide before too much valuable time elapses so we know we either will have true representation or not.
A constituent back home in Arizona
The latest news is that John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign committee has been fined $80,000 by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) for accepting contributions that exceeded federal limits.
The hometown fish wrap known as the Arizona Republic doesn’t regard this important enough for the front page or even back placement in the front section. Nope. McCain’s admitted violations of the law rate page three in the Valley and State B section.
His campaign acknowledged incorrectly reporting the dates the contributions were received. Additionally, the required 48-hour disclosure notices for 169 contributions totaling $240,700 that it received prior to the general election was ignored by the McCain-Palin Compliance Fund Inc. and John Schmuckler, the treasurer of both.
In this conciliation agreement with the FEC, McCain’s campaign admitted violating the law by accepting $377,657 in contributions that exceeded legal limits; failed to report correctly the original dates on which $22,257,684 in contributions were received by its joint fundraising representatives; and failed to correctly report re-designations made to the compliance fund.
Were he less reprehensible, it might be tempting to cut the guy some slack. After all, his memory has failed him often, as embarrassingly evidenced here and here. When asked during his presidential race McCain couldn’t even remember how many homes his beer heiress wife, Cindy, owns — and he gets to live in. He hesitatingly told a reporter, “I think….I’ll have my staff get back to you.”
