As predicted the ship of fools has passed the dangerous and Un-American START treaty on Dec 21st 2010. Just in time for Christmas cheer. I am still throwing up my Wassail as I contemplate what they have done. The main guts of this Treaty is that Russia and the US have agreed to reduce their nuclear arsenals to fewer than 1,550 warheads in seven years time.
As it is now we have 1,950 deployed strategic warheads and 798 launchers. Russia has 2,540 deployed strategic warheads and 574 launchers. They talk in the document about having inspectors to monitor all the reductions over the years. Isn’t that a thrill?
I had hoped against hope, even expected that the Republicans would vote against something that diminishes our national strength and ability to defend herself and our friends, but no. There were 13 traitorous Republicans who voted for START. Naturally, Obama and his cronies had been campaigning furiously saying that a defeat would embarrass our President and hurt the country. Oh….we wouldn’t want to do that would we? I cannot believe that the morons in the Senate fell for this bull rot. Whatever happened to the truth….Obama needs to be embarrassed and shamed until he is chased out of office.
So far, with this President and congress I can’t think of anything they have done the last two years that doesn’t deserve massive shame and rebuke. The reversal of ‘Don’t ask don’t tell’ and now ratifying START deserves way more than shame. They deserve a clangy and environmentally insensitive Train screaming through DC and grabbing up all who voted for these bills in the Lame Duck session and taking them all on a one way trip to Iran so they can be close to their people. Since it is the Holiday season, I would give them a second choice…..Russia.
The traitorous and cowardly Republicans who voted for this are:
Lamar Alexander (R-TN) SHAME
Scott Brown (R-MA) SHAME
Thad Cochran (R-MS) SHAME
Susan Collins (R-ME) SHAME
Bob Corker (R-TN) SHAME
Judd Gregg (R-NH) SHAME
Johnny Isakson (R-GA) SHAME
Mike Johanns (R-NE) SHAME
Richard Lugar (R-IN) SHAME
Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) SHAME
Olympia Snowe (R-ME) SHAME
George Vainovich (R-OH) SHAME
Those who are returning should be voted out of office with bold new opponents put in place during the upcoming primaries. Regardless of who stays or leaves, all should be flooded with calls, faxes and emails, shaming them and blaming them for compromising national security and strength!
What amazes me even more is that Obama and the lame brain senate ratified a deal not with a real ally but with our historical nemesis and enemy, Russia. Have we lost our entire minds and forgotten how deceptive and aggressive they are? Just a few memory pills for you all:
Did we forget that Russian General Anatoly Nogovitsyn threatened only a few years ago a nuclear attack on Poland because it agreed to host our US rockets? Russia was essentially threatening the US and her allies over the US missile shield. Quick let’s sign a treaty with them and reduce our power.
Let us not forget their aggressive, military attack on Georgia that continues to grow their democracy even with constant threats from Russia. Then there is my favorite comfort moment…..Russia sending weapons and massive millions to IRAN. Of course they are looking for oil and rich friends at any cost….including cost to the US.
The truth is that Russian leadership is a neutered enemy to freedom and the US. It was neutered by Ronald Reagan through his masterful protection and build up of our military and nuclear arsenal. Like Islamic leadership through out the world, Russia only responds to strength. They will lie, cheat and steal to get their power and empire back. That means threatening our allies, freedom loving countries surrounding them and assaulting us through the side and back doors. I expected idiocy in the vote on START from the progressive democrats but how horrifying that we also saw it with 13 turn coat Republicans.
The START treaty was totally unnecessary except to give Obama a ‘false front’ bill that would look like a success. It only reflects Obama and the progressive’s continuous apology making and shredding of America. We have always had tough guidelines and restrictions regarding the use of any nuclear weapons, and only did so with Japan after we warned Nagasaki and Horoshima by dropping leaflets two weeks in advance and had no other options. There was no more talking with them. They were the original ‘suicide bombers’ and didn’t care about dying to destroy us.
America, with her constitution, commitment to freedom and Judeo Christian values, must remain strong with our military and nuclear program. Evil only responds and backs downs to one thing…..strength coupled with morality!
All who voted for the START Treaty should be quickly voted out of office and shamed.
~ Look again at the list above & target them to vote them out, it is your duty! I hope this will give you an Extra incentive, see the arrogance:~JP
Wake up Tenn.!
* November 04, 2008
Your support made a difference in my-re-election to the United States Senate. Thank you very much. It is a privilege to represent Tennesseans in such serious times. As I did as Governor and during my first term in the Senate, I will work across party lines to get results on the big issues, including energy independence, controlling spending, and helping every American have access to affordable health insurance.
I will do my very best to continue to earn your confidence and support.

–Scott Brown…we knew what we were getting but the premise of a Republican was better then a liberal, in fact did come back to bite us in the arse:
Brown has often aligned himself with the two sisters of socialistic leanings from Maine, Senators Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe both registered Republicans but frequently found in compromising positions with liberal Democrats.
Republicans have a few Senate seats that come up in 2012 — including Maine, Nevada, and Massachusetts — that they really should be worried about. But so far, Massachusetts looks pretty good, PPP reports.
