Lindsey Graham to offer resolution praising Obama for killing Americans

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) will offer a resolution next week commending President Barack Obama’s use of drones and the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki.

“Every member of Congress needs to get on board,” Graham said. “It’s not fair to the president to let him, leave him out there alone quite frankly. He’s getting hit from libertarians and the left.

“I think the middle of America understands why you would want a drone program to go after a person like Anwar al-Awlaki,” Graham added.

The newest discussions about drones and al-Awlaki comes after the White House sent a memo to members of Congress explaining the reasoning behind their killing of an American citizen who was working for Al Qaeda.

Graham said the resolution will allow for a debate about who the nation is at war with and what proper action during times of war is.

“The process of being targeted I think is legal, quite frankly laborious and should reside in the commander in chief to determine who an enemy combatant is and what kind of force to use,” Graham told reporters on Wednesday.

Please check out South Carolina state Senator Lee Bright, who is more than likely going to primary Lindsey Graham (now that Tom Davis said he's not running).

Bright endorsed Ron Paul for President and has received the top score from South Carolina's Club for Growth the last four years. He has talked about Mises, Hayek, civil liberties, wars, drone strikes, etc. on his Facebook page here:

"He's getting hit from libertarians..."

He noticed us!
Did I help make the warmongering fascist pigs have to write a paper declaring themselves moral and just? Well, that put me in MY place, let me tell you....
Maybe I'll just give him a call and have a chat about trials and convictions before executions... Maybe you'd like to call, too?

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Wrong.

Most Americans want to see justice served under our justice system.

Closet case.

Well, Lindsey, if he's

getting hit from Libertarians AND the left...where does that leave you? In a very tiny minority.

Someone tweeted this today:

Hey, @BarackObama, @LindseyGrahamSC might be a terrorist. U could drone strike him & no one would care. #DroneStrike @GrahamBlog It's Legal!

Can anyone point me to the

Can anyone point me to the "proof" that al awlaki was affiliated with All- Cia -Duh? I have heard that accusation over and over, but have never seen that claim presented in concrete fact.

He an an anti-american

He an an anti-american website. That is all he did. He might have perhaps had some links to so-called terrorists but as far as I know he had no direct connections with any terrorist plots. And certainly his 16 year old son didn't.... But that's ok. Our government doesn't give a shit about children. They drip their crocdile tears over children being killed by a crazy man and go kill children themselves with their weapons of mass destruction. The real terrorist is the government of the united states. I'm so tired of these filthy pigs.

I just can't take it any more. I want to move to a deserted island and forget all about this piece of shit country.

Thanks for the reply. I feel

Thanks for the reply. I feel your pain. Our Government is overflowing with lying, thieving, murdering, dishonorable men/women. It has been that way for the duration of my life, yet, I love this piece of dirt. I love our rich, sometimes ugly, history. I love the principles and the ideals our country was founded on. I love the diversity, the cultures. It is worth fighting for. I will challenge the corruption anyway I can. It's my duty. It's our duty. Previous generations dropped that ball long ago. The accomplice to the crime of corruption is frequently our own indifference.

Consolidation of power, inevitability leads to corruption. That revolving door in DC that allows for Corporate heads to become governmental regulators and vice versa, needs to be locked tight. In a state where corruption abounds, laws must be very numerous. Sometimes corruption is slowed by shedding light into what was previously shadowed. Don't give up, accept the challenge.

The fall of America is not

The fall of America is not much different than the fall of Rome. Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

Elected official. INSANE, indeed.

I agree. When you listen to him or read pretty much anything he wrote, it goes beyond any sane understanding how he managed to find his way up from the people.

The purest essence of a traitor roaming and "doing his business" in plain sight.

FREAKY. SCARY.

Lieberman is another great example, too.

"To study and not think is a waste. To think and not study is dangerous." -- Confucius

How long O Lord, how long shall the wicked rule

I pray almost daily, if they desire not salvation of the Lord and repent of their wicked ways, that Almighty God will take the very breath from these evil, wicked people who now run and ruin our nation.

If they will not fear God and do that which is right in His sight, may they perish even as King Herod whom God smote as the king spoke to the people and the worms ate his flesh.

May God make their way dark and slippery, may the angel of the Lord chase them and persecute them, let them fall into the pit which they have dug for others.

Double post

so I will make it a double prayer!
