    Let me start by saying, on March 19, 2012 Michele Bachmann and her family actually became official citizens of Switzerland. How Speaker John Boehner thinks that she can sit in the US Congress House Intelligence Committee of the United States after swearing allegiance to the country of Switzerland is beyond my comprehension.

     Right now, Bachmann and four other Low IQ, Paranoid-as-hell House Republicans are engaged in a draconian, anti-American - yes Anti-American - Witch Hunt.
          Rep. Michele Bachmann - House Intelligence Committee
          Rep. Lynn Westmoreland - House Intelligence Committee
          Rep. Thomas Rooney - House Intelligence Committee
          Trent Franks
          Louie Gohmert

      The combined IQ of those 5 paranoid, ignorant Republicans is probably around 3.  Never mind that, the mere fact that three of those people are on the House Intelligence Committee illustrates & underscores just how crappy a Speaker that John Boehner is.  

      Face it, their Witch Hunt has only to do with ginning up Americans against Muslims -- that's it, that's their sole goal -- they want Americans to hate Muslims so they engage in this Witch Hunt and I call that Anti-American.

      Speaker Boehner should explain to Americans why he thinks these paranoid haters are qualified to be on the House Intelligence Committee.

      Speaker Boehner should also explain to Americans why in the hell he thinks a woman who pledged her Allegiance to Switzerland in March 2012, Michele Bachmann, has an business on the United States House Intelligence Committee.

     Notice: These five paranoid freaks are wasting Taxpayer money to engage in an Witch Hunt --- just thought I'd throw that fact out there.

         

      As a side note regarding Michele Bachmann's citizenship of Switzerland.  Minnesota Public Radio Reported:

Bachmann is also a Swiss citizen

Staffers for Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann are confirming a Swiss television news report that Bachmann is now a citizen of Switzerland. Bachmann's congressional spokeswoman Becky Rogness said Bachmann now enjoys dual citizenship with the US and Switzerland.

"Congresswoman Bachmann's husband is of Swiss descent so she has been eligible for dual-citizenship since they got married in 1978," said Rogness. "However, recently some of their children wanted to exercise their eligibility for dual-citizenship so they went through the process as a family."

Bachmann represents Minnesota's 6th Congressional District and is seeking re-election to a 4th term following a failed GOP presidential campaign. Bachmann's critics have accused her of neglecting her Minnesota constituents in favor of promoting broader ambitions.

Here's the Swiss TV interview. In it, a reporter tells Bachmann she's technically able to run in Switzerland. "As you can see there's a lot of competition behind me," Bachmann says indicating a group of men, who laugh, "..and they're very good."

    It appears to be UN-Constitutional for a citizen of a foreign country (Switzerland) to be a member of Congress:      
    The US Constitution: Article I, Section 9 states in part:

    No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign State.

    I would say, but I don't know for sure, that having the Title of "Citizen" from the "foreign State" of Switzerland disqualifies Bachmann from holding office in the US Congress and she should just step down on that fact alone.

     In any event,

I hope everyone calls, tweets and facebooks John Boehner to tell him to kick: Michele Bachmann, Lynn Westmoreland and Thomas Rooney off of the House Intelligence Committee.  Americans do not need paranoid, ignorant haters on the House Intelligence Committee.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
