John McCain Calls Paul, Cruz, and all Constitutionalists ‘Wacko Birds’

John-McCainSen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) continues to criticize his fellow Republicans for their filibuster of incoming CIA Director John O. Brennan because of ambiguous responses to the administration’s drone policy. In an interview with the Huffington Post, McCain referred to Republican Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz as “wacko birds.”

McCain also attacked Rep. Justin Amash from Michigan. Rep. Amash had this to say in a Tweet: “Sen McCain called @SenRandPaul @SenTedCruz & me ‘wacko birds.’ Bravo, Senator. You got us. Did you come up with that at #DinnerWithBarack?”

When’s the first time or the last time a Democrat criticized another Democrat from the Senate floor? No matter how wayward a Democrat is, other Democrats rarely if ever say anything negative.

Have you noticed that anti-gun groups have been relatively silent lately? There’s a strategically planned reason for it:

“President Barack Obama’s gun control agenda is looking more doomed by the day, but gun control advocates still haven’t said a word to complain.

That’s no accident.

“The White House knew its post-Newtown effort would require bringing key gun control groups into the fold. So the White House offered a simple arrangement: the groups could have access and involvement, but they’d have to offer silence and support in exchange.

“The implied rules, according to conversations with many of those involved: No infighting. No second-guessing in the press. Support whatever the president and Vice President Joe Biden propose. And most of all, don’t make waves or get ahead of the White House.”

Democrats present a united front. Republicans gather in a circle and shout, “Ready . . . Aim . . . Fire!”

What Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and other Republican Senators did was energize the Republican base. So while the flame of constitutional conservative values burned bright for 13 hours, the limping old guard RINOs brought their leaky fire hoses to put it out.

Instead of joining in on the legitimate criticism of the ambiguous statements by Attorney General Eric Holder on drone attacks on U.S. soil, McCain was being snookered by President Obama on a dinner date.

Now Obama can say that he’s cooperating with the Republicans. He invited them to dinner to discuss the budget impasse! If the Republicans don’t go along with his claim of compromise, Obama will blame the impasse . . . on the Republicans. “See, I sat down with them. I wanted to compromise, but they won’t budge.” Of course, given the attacks on Paul and Cruz, McCain will probably roll over so Obama can rub his tummy. “Good doggie!”

Paul and Cruz were right to question Holder on drone strikes because the Attorney General would not give a straight answer. It was the filibuster that forced Holder’s hand. Holder wrote the following to Sen. Paul:

“It has come to my attention that you have now asked an additional question: ‘Does the President have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil?’ The answer to that question is no.”

So why didn’t he answer “no” when he was first asked this question? There was no “additional question.”

McCain and Graham are licking their wounds because the new guys decided to take the fight to the Democrats.

    Gary, your conclusion on the separation between killing enemy combattant abroad does not sound right. I will check closely because all indications are that, while American protesting the government must have a trial, an American joining a foreign entity at war with the USA is a traitor and, in fact, looses his citizenship. It is a matter of dual loyalty.
    In the case we face now, these are not under a foreing flags but in the same category of pirats, bandit, terrorist. There is a famous case need to look at it, we fought pirats in Tunisia. Apart from that,I am sure any Court would look at the issue if the citizens took part in attacks on US military property. For me that makes him an enemy combattant and subject to the rules of war.

    HAROLD you have forgatten me again, no posting from you, or, Google stops them. Will not change to Google his dictatorial way of dong it hits me very wrong. If we want to fight for freedom we should start standing up to bully here at home.
    So what will Cruz do about the Presidential requirement “must be born in the USA” It only applies to President, the blood line has always been the preferred and used method starting with British citizenshi

    Well, Rand is still a bit young at the game but he is sincere, is doing something and stays with the Constitution. Cruz, well he does spouts what he things goes over well and lands him on TV. Different bird than Rand.

    McAmnesty and McGrahamnesty have always been the blood lusting neo-cons in the RINO party. How McCain keeps getting re-elected is no strange coincidence. He uses huge amounts of out-of-state money and snookers the voters every time by changing his tune on immigration, et al months before the election. On election day, voters think they are voting for a new, re-incarnated McCain, but in reality, they are getting the same ole pile of crap.

    He and Graham are on my list as some of the most dangerous people in america today. They are the domestic enemy that is referred to in our founding documents and they belong to a long and growing list of Tyrants who lick their lips, froth at the mouth, wring their hands and giggle waiting for the day they will be given their “little” throne upon which they can rule their qassigned share of the masses.

    It’s past time for RINOsaurs like McCain and Graham to become extinct. Their next elections should be focused on that.
