Reuters: Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, left, Representative Michele Bachmann, centre, and Senator John McCain, right.
When did we start using Senator John McCain’s “friend” list instead of FBI background investigations to determine whether an individual should receive access to sensitive and classified government information?
John McCain (R-AZ), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and John Boehner (R-OH) need to step down. They are unfit to serve and they pose a threat to the safety and security of the American people.
We Americans want to know what the hell is going on in Washington D. C.?!
Yesterday Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said that the White House was behind recent national security leaks. She stated, “I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from their ranks.”
While Republicans have been blaming the White House for playing politics with national security, John McCain and his good-old-boy network in Congress are doing just that – playing politics at the expense of national security. They are “in” with the White House now; they are against the security of our nation. That’s the bottom line when the spin and propaganda are set aside.
FBI background investigations have been done for decades; it is standard operating procedure for all individuals who will have access to sensitive and classified government information. Familial and organizational associations are a critical component of background investigations to ensure that individuals cannot be blackmailed or easily compromised into divulging classified information to America’s enemies.
Other components of these standard background investigations include polygraphs and even investigation into countries that the individual has traveled to. From drug use to lifestyle and everything in between, the FBI is required to investigate the individual as far back as their place of birth in order to determine whether they, their family members and their close friends could have connections to anyone who could present a risk to national security.
The investigation being requested by Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and four other members of Congress is fully justified and is not asking for anything that isn’t already standard operating procedure.
John McCain’s vehement opposition to that investigation is an outrage and what he and others should be asking is why the investigation was not conducted years ago. His gross negligence and dereliction of duty as a U.S. Senator must not be tolerated.
Did John McCain read the 16 page letter with 59 footnotes sent to Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN)?
If John McCain failed to read it, his lack of due diligence is on full display and he needs to step down.
If he read it and remains unable to comprehend the gravity of the situation and the criticality of proceeding with the request for an investigation, he is either incompetent or he holds a blatant disregard for the security of our nation.
There are no shades of gray in this matter when the facts are already laid out for all to see. Even a 5th grader can see that the investigation being requested by Michele Bachmann and others is fully warranted and necessary.
John McCain’s own actions and words have placed him at a fork in the road with only two paths to choose from. One path supports the need for an investigation; the other is the path of resignation… it’s time to decide Mr. McCain.
Having served our country with honor, distinction and sacrifice as a member of our military decades ago, one must ask Mr. McCain if the corrupting forces in Washington D.C. are so potent that he cannot resist turning a blind eye to national security and instead chooses to fight against those who care about the security of our nation.
Where was John McCain when members of Seal Team Six and Special Ops forces were murdered? Egregious ‘leaks’ announced publicly by President Obama and serious unanswered questions surround that massacre and we want to know where John McCain and his good-old-boys stand in terms of calling for an investigation? Their otherwise loud voices are silent on this matter and Mr. McCain needs to know that we’ve noticed.
And where was John McCain over a year ago when a Canadian Diplomat who is a liberal Democrat and self-described Marxist-leaning moderate Muslim, Tarek Fatah, sounded the warning bell that Canada has evidence of infiltration right up to our White House by the fascist forces of the Muslim Brotherhood? McCain was silent again – and we noticed.
We know where Mr. McCain was when he fought to grant Presidential power to indefinitely detain American citizens without charge or trail. In fact, he fought loudly for passage of the S. 1867 NDAA legislation. Either he was too incompetent to understand the language of the bill and what Senator Levin (D-MI) articulated on the Senate floor, or he intentionally condoned this legislation in violation of the Constitutional rights of the American people. We, the American people noticed.
Senator Carl Levin Regarding NDAA 2012
Caption: “Senator Carl Levin admits that there is language in the version of NDAA that did pass, which allows for the indefinite detention of American citizens without proof, trial, judge, or jury…”
John McCain’s recent actions against Michele Bachmann are unacceptable and intolerable. His opposition to a critically important and fully justified investigation is an outrage. It is time that he and his good-old-boys step down. John McCain’s actions represent a clear threat to our national security.

For someone like Sen. McCain, that comes from a patriotic career US Military Family, his own experience in the US Military, and particular experience as a POW in Vietnam for 7 plus years, is especially atrocious, reprehensible, and repugnant to see him and his anti-American mentality, attitude, work and actions. He of course is a progressive GOP establishment RINO, which unfortunately the GOP Republican Party establishment is now and has been run by progressives who view America in the same way the liberal progressive socialist-marxist Democrats do.
This is why these RINOs collude and compromise with them, as well as appease and capitulate to them at every turn. Hence the Republican Party is no longer the opposition Party in the American political system. This is why they attack the real opposition group, the only real entity that actually fights against these anti-American progressive forces in America today, that entity is the Reagan Conservative Tea Party Movement coalition.
We the Reagan Tea Party folks and movement must wage and fight these internal enemies of America, all of them all fronts which complies from of the radical Obama Democrats, the progressive RINO Republicrats, and their co-conspiratorial partners in the media all at once. Thus we are the only real patriotic pro-American faction entity in America that is actively political in this fight to stop these anti-American factions and the people who advance their political anti-American progressive socialist agenda..
But Obama and his marxist ideological agenda’s end goal is the absolute internal destruction of America, the US Constitution, Democracy, Freedom and liberty as it was founded over 236 years ago.
And all the progressive GOP establishment RINO’s want to do, is to defeat us, ie; Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint, and all Reagan Tea Party Conservative Patriots of America.
The following is a link to the what seems to me to be the letters that Michele Bachmann is being attacked on. (I thought it was only 16 pages ?? – this is 42 pages) http://s3.documentcloud.org/documents/402379/rep-michele-bachmann-correspondence.pdf
She and the others who signed these letters deserve a medal for their work!! Not condemnation.
You can also add Eric Cantor. I lost all the respect I had for him. Eric Cantor is a staunch ally of the State of Israel – that makes this even more outrageous and unbelievable.
The following is a link to an article by Aaron Klein on Huma Abedin’s (Hillary Clinton’s aide) connections to Al Qaeda etc. http://kleinonline.wnd.com/2012/07/22/huma-tied-to-al-qaida-front-michelle-bachmanns-letter-missed-what-could-me-most-troubling-connection/

Thank you Trevor for reporting on this.
You should add Mike Rogers from Michigan to this list. He also claimed that Michele Bachmann’s letter was inaccurate. Another once solid Republican who was turned to mush by the offer of a chairmanship.
I’ve been saying for sometime that Senator McCain is a traitor to his oath to defend the Constitution. He authored the NDAA which allows for the permanent incarceration of American citizens by our military. He needs to retire and let patriots take his place. Dozens in political office like him need to retire too. McCain is a disgrace!
You hit a home run with this one. We need to run these blatant traitors out of their. If we don’t get serious, we aren’t going to like what happens next …
