Lindsey Graham: “I’d Use Troops On Congress”




|| By FITSNEWS || U.S. president Barack Obama has trampled all over the Constitution to get his way in Washington, D.C. – with congressional “Republicans” (including Lindsey Graham) more often than not aiding and abetting his power grabs.

But Graham – the fiscal liberal warmonger mounting a long-shot 2016 presidential bid – may have just topped Obama when it comes to threatening executive overreach.

According to reporter Ron Noyes at, Graham told a New Hampshire crowd that the first thing he would do as president would be to reverse recent defense cuts.

(Wait … what?  Earth to Graham: As we pointed out to S.C. governor Nikki Haley earlier this week, there have been no military spending cuts.  In fact defense spending is up … way up).

But far more disturbing than Graham’s budgetary fibbing is his proposed method of restoring these phantom “cuts” to the military.

Here’s his plan (in his own words) …

Here is the first thing I would do if I were President of the United States, I wouldn’t let Congress leave town until we fix this. I would literally use the military to keep them in if I had to.

We’re not leaving town until we restore these defense cuts. We’re not leaving town until we restore the intel cuts.

Wow … guess it’s time to change those campaign stickers …

Graham’s statement isn’t just wrong. It isn’t just inane. It isn’t just reckless. It isn’t just dangerous. It’s more than that … it’s downright treasonous. And you better believe every “Republican” in America would say so … assuming those words came out of Obama’s mouth.

This website has been one of Graham’s fiercest critics for years – relentlessly calling him out for his anti-free market, anti-freedom positions.  So we already knew he was a special interest whorefiscal liberalObama abettorneo-fascistfriend of terroriststhief of your libertyfraud and hypocrite.

But this comment truly takes the cake …

We’ve taken some criticism for our suggestive criticism of Graham in the past, but this comment shows exactly why we are so aggressively opposed to him.

He’s out of control … and someone needs to stop him before more people get hurt.
