Senator Lindsey Graham: Homeland is a Warzone; Constitution Obsolete, Get Drones Up There! (In the sky)

Lindsey Graham wants drones in the sky and the constitution gone because "homeland" is a warzone.

By Tiffany Madison | Washington Times

AUSTIN, April 20, 2013 - The always patriotic U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham says the Boston bombing “is Exhibit A of why the homeland is the battlefield”. In an interview with the Washington Post:

“It’s a battlefield because the terrorists think it is.” Referring to Boston, he observed, “Here is what we’re up against,” and added, “It sure would be nice to have a drone up there [to track the suspect.]” He also slammed the president’s policy of “leading from behind and criminalizing war.”

On Twitter, he suggested the Obama administration toss the court system and Constitution for “intelligence gathering purposes”. He declared the administration should hold the accused bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, as an enemy combatant. This legal status has been mostly reserved for al Qaeda and those held without charge for the last decade in Guantanamo Bay’s military facility.

Senator Graham is a known proponent of military-style detention for American suspects merely accused of terrorism. During debates regarding indefinite detention provisions in 2011, which effectively invalidated the Bill of Rights, he notoriously bellowed that Americans accused of a terrorist-related crime should be denied Due Process. “When they say I want a lawyer, you say “Shut up! You don’t get a lawyer.”

He was also a most vocal critic of Senator Rand Paul’s 13-hour filibuster designed to demand answers regarding the Obama administration’s domestic drone program. When the tide of public opinion turned against him, he stopped vocally defending the “homeland battlefield” ideology, but Graham never lets a crisis go to waste.

run against this psychopath? We need to find someone and have a giant moneybomb and get some boots on the ground. Focus all of our efforts on this senate seat.

There may have been a

drone used in West, Texas. Check out some of the video.

Was Lindsey not also a supporter of fighting them over there

So we wouldn't have to fight them here? Everything this man says and does is a political disaster, but they keep re-electing these tools, I just don't get it...

violation of a oath, and either resigns or shows a commitment to uphold that oath: evidenced by a changed voting record. Or (2) His office is taken from him and given to one who will honor his (or her, for that matter) promises.

Why didn't Congress say so?

Lindsey, if the US is at war, why didn't Congress say so?

There is no bigger P.O.S. in the government today than Graham...

He makes Obama look like one of the founders.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

When will someone put Graham in a rocket

and send him permanently to Gingrich's moon base?

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Graham is a joke

He is worried about the so called terrorist but is one of the main ones pushing to make the Wets legal

Take your racist BS and shove

Take your racist BS and shove it. The "Wets"... What an asshat.

i second that.

Tom Davis said he wasn't

Tom Davis said he wasn't going to run against graham a couple months back. Then there was a rumor that he was reconsidering. Please email him or facebook message him your support and reasoning for running against graham. I'm tired of Lindsey graham here.

I Pledged

Some where, here on this site, I pledged to donate to any liberty minded person that will run against John McCain little brother. If Tom Davis is that person I will help with his support.

I have chickens and ducks... so plenty of feathers! :)

Tar, anyone?

What would the Founders do?

Like him, do more to promote liberty than they could ever comprehend.

Graham is nuts!

The talk like this has to make anyone wonder how much going on in the country is just a False Flag. What better way to destroy what little is left of the Constitution and setup martial law

What do we need to do to get

What do we need to do to get the ball rolling to have him tried for treason? He is without a doubt guilty.

Nothing surprising

Graham is a Traitor

90%

of congress are traitors. Don't give Graham all of the credit. :-)
