John Boehner: "He's a Traitor!"

By Abby D. Phillip | Jun 11, 2013

(ABC News) -- House Speaker John Boehner today called NSA leaker Edward Snowden a “traitor” who put Americans at risk by releasing classified information to the media.

“He’s a traitor,” the highest ranking Republican in the House of Representatives said in an extensive interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. “The disclosure of this information puts Americans at risk. It shows our adversaries what our capabilities are. And it’s a giant violation of the law.”

Boehner endorsed President Obama’s characterization of two programs, which allow the NSA to gather information about phone calls made in the U.S. as well as information on foreign suspects collected from major internet companies, as critical to the government’s ability to fight terrorism. He said that there are “clear safeguards” built into the programs to protect Americans.

When a Traitor calls someone else a Traitor,

That person he refers to MUST be our friend!

Coming from THIS GUY...

Best Post of the Week

I am still laughing.

It is a good thing we are spread out all over the world. If we were in the same town I think there would be a Sarcasm Fusion Event visible from Mars because we came too close to each other.

My feelings about all of this is -

If what he has said is a lie, then he is just guilty of being a fraud and cannot be prosecuted as a "traitor".
If what he has said is the truth, then the country has bigger things to worry about than trying to prosecute him as a traitor.

I feel that he has told the truth and is only "guilty?" of being a whistle blower, not a traitor! Which means that this country had better start paying attention to what he has told them!

That's Great

We have so many politicians voicing out their stance on this important issue before they've had a chance to sample the political winds and public opinion. This should end their political careers (hopefully permanently) and allow for at least a fresh set of liars after the next election. I would love to see some recalls of politicians as a result of this.

John Boehner <-- he's a traitor

...and I hope those tanning beds are as dangerous as people claim.

You beat me to the punch on your subject line :)

F.U. BONER!

YOU'RE the traitor.

You broke your oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States which you swore on a bible to defend.

There are few more rotted rats in congress than Boner.

McCain and Graham come to mind as comparable rats.

Yesterday I was saying Boehner needs to speak out

Today, I'm saying he needs to STFU. He's just a water boy for the D's.

ThIs Idiot John Boehner (Pronounced Boner) Is The Traitor!

The traitorous establisment loves to call patriots names like "Traitor" in order to distract americans from seeing the name callers are the real traitors...

Boehner is a "PUNK!!"

Freaking cry baby!!

He must be reading from the same teleprompter as Graham and Obama.

SteveMT's picture

Looking in the mirror everyday is causing even more disease.

Boehner now thinks that everyone else is also a traitor.

Boehner

is the traitor. I am pretty sure our "enemies" know that we have the capability to listen to, track, and store all communications. We must NOT let the MSM and the real criminal flip the narrative. Bastards.

Indeed.

The idea that this leak reveals anything to Goldstein...I mean the terrorists....that they didn't already know is absurd. If they don't already operate on the assumption that the US government may be tracking their electronic communications, then they're obviously idiots and represent no threat to anyone.

John Boehner is a Traitor!

fuck you government

Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.

If you have ever wondered

If the Republican establishment had sold out...

John Boehner, Lindsay Graham, and John McCain should give you NO DOUBT WHATSOEVER.

If you listen to chuck baldwin speak

He talks about the religious right/ conservative movement when it was first starting out. He stated around the election of Reagen VP, George H.W. Bush, a question was asked to about 30 very large, well known, named pastors and preachers, asking if they would stand up for Truth and be a real shepherd of God, in light of the way America was changing towards socialism and tyranny.

25 of them said "I have too much to lose," these men have all continued in success.

5 said they would fight tyranny, and have all but been destroyed, politically, and in character and career.

Example: Obama was recently called "Pastor in Chief" at the inauguration, by Andy Stanley.

This is why I continue to say we cannot win without the churches, we must get the Christians out of this slump of peace and complacency, and get them away from these pastors who have sold out, and are not telling them the truth.

And George Washington was a traitor.

Of course, Snowden is a dangerous threat and traitor to the New World Order.

And of course, Speaker Bonehead, would dutifully read the script that is handed to him to keep his probable affairs and pedophilia from going public. He's compromised and unfit for office, and every bit a puppet as Obombya is.

It appears our criminal gov't is hellbent on trying to provoke Americans to fight back violently, in self defense of course, but nevertheless, an insurrection is what the PTB seem to want.

But let's stick to the Infowars and pray that we'll keep making huge progress, because that is what Snowden is evidence of.

We need more Whistleblowers!!

I wonder how many Verizon customers are going to be looking for another cellphone provider? Not that it makes a difference. Yet, if enough customers cancel their Verizon service, they could seriously hurt Verizon's bottom line or put Verizon out of business.

We need more consumer activism.

What a joke.

"It shows our adversaries what our capabilities are"

Uhh many nations have had the capability of spying on their own people. Most of them are communist or dictator led but its been out there already.

What a Boehnhead.

Looks like we can add Boehner

to the long list of statist Republicans that needs to be thrown out of office by the liberty movement in 2014.... along with McCain and Graham.

They all need to go,

but boehner should be at the TOP of that list.

Boehner is another useful idiot

After I found out he was 'groomed' by Gingrich to eventually become Speaker, I lost any trust I may have had for him. Guess I'm gonna 'have a problem' now.
