Representative Peter King (R-KY) lashed out at fellow Republican Rand Paul on Sunday over National Security Agency (NSA) leaker Edward Snowden.

King said on Fox News the United States should take whatever action necessary to extradite Snowden to the United States.

“I think it is important for the American people to realize that this guy is a traitor, a defector, he’s not a hero,” the congressman added. “And I heard Senator Rand Paul this morning actually compared Snowden to General Clapper. What’s happened to our country? This is a traitor, and for anyone to be comparing him to a U.S. military hero is absolutely disgraceful.”

Who the hell does this guy work for?

If it were me I would FIRE him in the next election!

This is the only way these corrupt fascists will learn.

King would soon be living under his own laws and not the special ones designed for the corruptors in d.c.

Fire him? What planet are you on?

Yeah, okay, let's all rise up and ... fire him.

Better yet, let's go on the Daily Paul and call other long-term users "jerks" - that'll get the job done.

How To Spot A Sociopath

An article by Mike Adams

A few key points:

Sociopaths are charming

Sociopaths are incapable of feeling shame, guilt or remorse

Sociopaths seek to dominate others and "win" at all costs

Sociopaths tend to be highly intelligent

Sociopaths never apologize

You cannot reason with a sociopath

Sociopaths never answer facts; they always attack the messenger



Let King do the name-calling.

I'm disappointed that some of us stoop to it.

Try to emulate Greenwald or Ron Paul and point out that King has no evidence of treason or "defector" (define the terms).

If they misuse words long enough, the meaning changes. For example, "Weapons of Mass Destruction" means "nuclear" not conventional bombs or poisons. In a few short years, misuse of WMD has completely changed what it used to mean.

A considered reply to King will do more good than to call him names.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

king has a new buddy

the donald who calls snowden "a terrible man"
and pines about how in the past "spies" were executed.

King is the epitome of evil trash

Who voted that loon in anyway? Watch Luke Rudkowski interview this a-hole. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6GQr8m5cOY

he is just mad

Because he hasn't been getting the attention Sen. Paul has. Nothing to be worried about I didn't even know about this guy until I read this story.

I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

What a


King can SHOVE IT!

I can't stand to look at that war-mongering P.O.S.

WE MUST get rats like him OUT of government.

King does NOT represent me - although in reality, every one of the members of the U.S. congress represent all of us.

And THAT is why the world hates this country so much.

I bet all his close associates except for his wife call him...

King Peter. She happens to know the real truth.

Hey Mr. King

How abouts we pull your voting record and see how man billions of our dollars you funneled to corporate interests...

and how readily you like to violate the Bill of Rights and United States Constitution.


arrest this traitor! hang him in the gallows

Peter King is a traitor to the constitution, a disgrace to America and the search requirements mandate of the fourth amendment. A butt pirate for the department of justice, Peter King should be charged, tried, and hung for treason.

Public Servants involved in these last few scandals get to use the fifth amendment left and right, so where is the accountability when they trash the same primary authority they use to keep their secrets? hanging each of them should deter this empty rhetoric.

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

I am surprised Peter King

allows comments on his videos, not getting a lot of love from the youtube community, lol.

Someone should make a hate

Someone should make a hate montage of all these filthy rotten congress critters with their names labeled, while they spew their hateful comments against Snowden, so we remember exactly who our enemies are.

The MSM is always doing a job

The MSM is always doing a job on American people whipping them into a hysterical fear frenzy on purpose.

There is no statistical evidence we will be less safe if the federal government stops its spying operations on the American people. Your odds of being killed by a terrorist will not go up any measurable amount.

Is it just me

or does King have a perpetual facial expression like he is about to get hit in the face with some diarrhea?

Seriously, though, King is up there in the pantheon of the psychopathically insane, with Lindsay Graham, McCain, Joe Lieberman, etc.

Nervous King? You sure act like it. What did you do wrong King or should it be stated how many things did you do illegal.


is a Zionist shill. As I believe that there is more to come from Snowden...King has plenty of rope to hang himself, and he is taking full advantage.

Yes King!! We Must Tighten Up So The Truth Doesn't Get Out

Go screw yourself King!!

You and the neocons in the congress along with the Obama administration are the enemy of the people and we REAL AMERICANS Loath stinking shills like you..

The cats out the bag King..
