I have to say that I get my news from many different sources. I make it a point to listen to both the left and the right sides of political news shows. One show that I appreciate listening to is the Wilkow Majority with Andrew Wilkow. As he says in the beginning of his show, “The show for rational thought and political analysts”.
On his show today, one of his guest was Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI) of the house of Representatives, a former F.B.I. agent as well as military officer. A gentleman who is well informed and aware of what it takes to deal with this type of situation.
The discussion was in regards to the terrorist having their Miranda Rights read to them on the battlefield. That’s right, non-American citizens are receiving the rights of American citizens. Thanks to the Democrats, our enemies are being protected by rights that they don’t even have the rights to.
We are at war with Jihadist who are firing at our solders, which makes them army combatants which gives them the rights of the Geneva Convention. In that case they should be tried under those laws, but because the Democrat’s defense is that the terrorist don’t wear uniform, they don’t fall under the guidelines. That’s well and good, but then why protect them under U.S. Constitution laws?
We can’t waterboard them because of the Geneva Convention and at the same time they’re not under the Geneva Convention laws. This has gotten totally out of control and the present Administration doesn’t have a clue as to what to do to protect this country. Which is what the main duties of the federal government is supposed to do.
Our government has lost sight of what our fore fathers had written out for this country. We have a little over a year to change the balance of power in Congress and about three years and four months to remove President Obama from the White House. That day can’t come soon enough for me.
