They ask; they tell. In the case of the Liberals who have debased the Democratic party, they ask for everything and tell lies when balked by Americans.
Their latest bit of perfidy is their whining that the Senate Republicans blocked the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (DADT).
Such mouthings may play well with their base, but fall far short of reality or American credulity.
These domestic enemies are not utterly without intelligence and cunning, however. They, following the “shining” example of what passes for President Obama’s rhetoric, lie through omission and by spewing half-truths and ambiguous statements rather than by outright lies.
Yes, it is true that a bill that included a repeal of DADT as a rider failed to come to a vote in the US Senate due to 39 Republican and 1 Democrat Senators blocking it via filibuster. Senator Reid’s vote for cloture ended up 57 to 40 with 3 abstaining (2 GOP, 1 Dem).
What is patently false, and a stupid lie by the Liberals trying to still rule Congress, is that the bill in question was a bill to repeal DADT or that the GOP blocked it on the grounds of being such a bill. It was, in truth, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 (S. 3454), something very important to the nation and the Republican Senators representing it.
The GOP, with one Dem supporter, filibustered the bill because the Senate Democrats, led by the ever arrogant and delusional Reid, tried to keep the Republicans from having any input into the bill and to prevent any debate upon its content where C-SPAN and the nation could see it.
Sens. Brown and Murkowski had previously said they supported repeal of DADT but demanded an “open amendment process” to ensure Republicans can make changes to the defense bill. Reid, in turn, offered Collins 15 amendments — 10 for Republicans and five for Democrats — but she countered with a request for four days of floor debate.
So the truth, despite the lies and misinformation spewing out of the mouths of America’s domestic enemies, is that Senator Reid and his cronies used the LGBT community in an attempt to ramrod a unbalanced and non-transparent national defense appropriation bill through the Senate and the Republicans refused to bullied by them.
Keep your eyes open. Travel light but load heavy, and always put another round in the enemy after they’re down. 😉
