Censure Russ Feingold

Mark Noonan at Blogs For Bush is recommending that Russ Feingold be censured for his idiotic political Leftist patronization

Given that the only possible beneficiaries of such an action are the terrorist enemeis of the United States, I believe that we should urge the Senate to censure Senator Feingold for giving aid and comfort to the enemy. I would ask for his expulsion from the Senate, but as that requires a 2/3 vote its a non-starter – the Democrats, for whom political power is the be-all and end-all of existence, simply would not vote to harm one of their own. Censure, though, only takes a majority vote. There are 55 Republican Senators, and even a few Democratic Senators who haven’t driven off the anti-war cliff.

The issue is, at the time of this posting, the most emailed story at Yahoo News

A liberal Democrat and potential White House contender is proposing censuring President Bush for authorizing domestic eavesdropping, saying the White House misled Americans about its legality.

“The president has broken the law and, in some way, he must be held accountable,” Sen. Russ Feingold, Defeatocrat-Wis., told The Associated Press in an interview.

A censure resolution, which simply would scold the president, has been used just once in U.S. history — against Andrew Jackson in 1834.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., called the proposal “a crazy political move” that would weaken the U.S. during wartime.

So, like Mark stated, it is a political stunt. One that embolden’s the enemy, as so much of the Defeatocrats speeches and stunts do.

Mark has a canned letter you can use to send to your two Senate Critters, as well as Bill Frist. Go to Congress Merge to find their email addresses.

Look, you Dems can criticize Bush all you want on Domestic issues, like spending, illegal immigration, whatever. But, when it comes to fighting Islamic terrorists, maybe you should realize that all your seething festering Bush hatred ends up harming our security. If you don’t think that the enemy pays attention and plays off of what you say, then perhaps you should step back into real reality, rather then Liberal World reality.

It is not domestic spying. As John Hawkins at Right Wing News writes

First of all, if you call a terrorist in Afghanistan and you’re both yakking it up, talking about murdering infidels, your favorite explosive, or who your favorite Democratic Senator is, does your phone company consider that to be a domestic call or an international call? An international call, right? After all, you’re talking to someone in a foreign country, right? Yet, those are the type of calls that are tapped, in some cases, without warrants, and yet the media never seems to challenge the Democrats when they call them “domestic calls.”

If the Left had their way, they would have us back to Sept 10, 2001, with all means to fight taken away. You cannot trust people that take the most expedient position. Right Wing News has more on that, too.

Make sure you send your letter!

    It really comes down to the simple question of whether Bush did or did not break the law. If he broke the law, deal with it. Or not. Let’s find out who actually cares about what little is left of the American legacy that we *can* be proud of, a powerful signal to send to our enemies: We The People of this country don’t take unconstitutional shit off our leaders. Top *that*, bin Laden!
