    A few days ago, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's car was attacked in Egypt because of the Muslim Witch Hunt that House Intel Committee Members: Rep. Michele Bachmann, Rep. Lynn Westmoreland and Rep. Thomas Rooney started.

     CBS in Minnesota Reports:

In Egypt this week, Clinton’s motorcade was pelted with shoes, tomatoes ... from protesters. Some demonstrators believe their new president was forced upon Egypt through a U.S. plot. They [protesters] cite a letter written to the State Department by five members of Congress, including Bachmann.
   The five members of Congress who are starting the Muslim Witch Hunt for no other reason except to promote hate towards Muslims are:
          Rep. Michele Bachmann - House Intelligence Committee
          Rep. Lynn Westmoreland - House Intelligence Committee
          Rep. Thomas Rooney - House Intelligence Committee
          Trent Franks
          Louie Gohmert

    By now, we all now Bachmann, Westmoreland, Rooney, Franks & Gohmerts letter claims Sec of State Clinton's aid Abedin’s late father, mother and brother are connected to the Muslim Brotherhood and that Abedin has “routine access to [Secretary Clinton] and policy-making.” Abedin’s father, however, died two decades ago.

    It's clear from the physical attack on US Sec of State Clinton's car in Egypt that Bachmann, Westmoreland and Rooney pose a direct threat to National Security and should be kicked off of the House Intelligence Committee.

    Also, all five Bachmann, Westmoreland, Rooney, Franks & Gohmerts should be Censure for deliberately posing a threat to National Security through their Muslim Witch Hunt? He's the Speaker of the House for Pete's sake!

   Please contact Speaker Boehner on twitter or Facebook and tell him to
- Censure Bachmann, Westmoreland, Rooney, Franks & Gohmerts and;

- Kick Bachmann, Westmoreland & Rooney off of the House Intel Committee.

   Today the Hill reports that Speaker Boehner said he didn't know if they should be kicked off of the House Intel Committee:

Boehner said he hadn’t seen the letter. When he was asked if he would remove Bachmann from the House Intelligence Committee because of the issue, Boehner said: “I don’t know that that’s related at all.
   I think Boehner lives his life in a drunken coma.  How can he not have heard about Sec Clinton's car getting attacked because of the Muslim Witch Hunt perpetrated by Bachmann, Westmoreland, Rooney, Franks & Gohmerts.

   Again, I ask for anyone reading to:

   Please contact Speaker Boehner on twitter or Facebook and tell him to
- Censure Bachmann, Westmoreland, Rooney, Franks & Gohmerts and;

- Kick Bachmann, Westmoreland & Rooney off of the House Intel 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.

    Speaker Boehner, I am calling on your honor, patriotism, and sense of justice to censure Representatives Bachmann, Westmoreland, Rooney, Franks & Gohmerts for their part in spreading deceitful lies that endangered Secretary Clinton, damaged the reputation of the United States, and impugned the reputation of loyal Muslim Americans; for their part, Representatives Bachmann, Westmoreland & Rooney should also be removed from the Intelligence Committee. They are clearly too irresponsible to hold such important positions.

    No, I don't think he has a lot of honor, patriotism or sense of justice... but I'm calling on what remains of those things in him.

  •  Excellent Idea..... (5+ / 0-)

    Bachmann has officially jumped the shark, gone down the rabbit hole & taken four other dimwitted Republicans with her.  

    No wonder they haven't done anything about jobs.  They are too busy repealing the ACA, enacting anti-abortion legislation & slandering, smearing & attacking an innocent woman who just happens to be the long time aide of Hillary Clinton.

    Censure it is, then.

    ..there are basically 2 reasons Michele Bachmann,  Lynn Westmoreland & Thomas Rooney will not be kicked off the House Intelligence Committee:

    1) If they are kicked off the House Intelligence Committee, the Beltway Village & traditional media would frame it as "appeasing liberal hate."

    It would be interpreted by the aforementioned as the Republican party caving to liberal militants out to score political points during a presidential election.

    2) As long as crazy bastards like Michele Bachmann,  Lynn Westmoreland & Thomas Rooney are on the House Intelligence Committee, they can actively work to undermine Obama's foreign policy, thereby helping to make Obama appear weak & confused concerning foreign affairs, thereby helping to get Romney elected.

    •  This is why I disagree with point 1. (0+ / 0-)

      McCain's speech yesterday was a broadside from someone within the national security wing of the congresisonal GOP. I know a good hunk of teh GOP likes himpossibly less than it likes Romney, but the portion who cares about stuff like this have permission to join in, and in particular to further isolate the three committee members by talking on background to the appropriate repeorters.

      It will be noted that during the Cold War, no one would have dreamed of putting some members of either party's caucus on the parallel committees. Nixon's stoning in South America will be mentioned, and the support he got universally from Dem congressmen.

      I don't expect Boehneer to understand with this. Drunken coma might be the reason, don't know. But at this point official Washington is going to understand what is what.

    This actually needs a HUGE petition from a huge organization that can get thousands and thousands of sigs.
