“LITERAL” COUPS NO LAUGHING MATTER … BUT THIS CARTOON IS FUNNY

|| By FITSNEWS || He says he was just joking, but U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham‘s recent comments about using military force to compel members of the U.S. Congress to keep pouring money into the nation’s military-industrial complex (and spy state) have struck a nerve …

One leading national group – Americans for Limited Government – has already called on Graham to resign over the remark.

Speaking to a group of New Hampshire “Republicans” earlier this week, the long-shot 2016 presidential candidate offered a frightening preview of what would happen in the event he were to occupy the Oval Office.

“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,” Graham said. “We’re not leaving town until we restore these defense cuts. We’re not leaving town until we restore the intel cuts.”

First of all Graham’s lying … there have been no military spending cuts.

But that’s not what this is about … it’s about an already dangerous and reckless warmonger totally crossing the line.  And after getting called out playing the “I was only joking” card.

Graham does joke … but he wasn’t joking in this case.  And even if he was, it’s totally out of line.

“Anyone who thinks joking about leading an executive branch military takeover of Congress is unsuitable for public office,” Americans for Limited Government president Rick Manning told FITS.

In addition to calling on Graham to step down, Manning also commissioned political cartoonist A.F. Branco to put the warmongering Senator’s comment in context.

Here’s a high-resolution version of Branco’s cartoon …

Nice …

In fact it reminds us of our “Little Lindsey Soldier Boy” story from 2013.

UPDATE: Note to newspaper editors … Americans for Limited Government has authorized all South Carolina media to republish the Graham cartoon if they wish.

I would be more worried about muslim Obama violating the Constitution AGAIN by going around congress and to the UN so his radical Islamic buddies Iran can get a nuke to incinerate the USA? What you think?

Don’t you mean the republican senate going around the president to talk with radical Islamic Iran? Also, who is the bigger enemy? ISIS or Iran?

So fucking what? They followed president as set by the blue team for years. The Sec of State said that they DID NOT INTEND TO GO TO CONGRESS WITH THIS ANYWAY. Right?

The people complaining about Graham are not the ones voting for him. Too obvious a fact for you to grasp?

Yeah, Boz, but like with the whore monger Mark Sanford, the rest of the country gives the entire state credit for putting these people in office.

Most of the ones complaining do not show up to the primary to vote for someone better, then they show up in November and vote for him anyways because he isn’t the Democrat. I can’t count how many people openly whine about him who said they still voted for him.

Graham was “joking” he? Kinda like his buddy McCain singing abut “bombing Iran”? Those two are super funny. They should do a stand up act together.

To joke or not to joke March 13, 2015 at 10:08 am

McCain said it as if he was just trying to be funny, even if that is not something to joke about. If you listen to the audio of Graham there is no tone to his voice that suggests being humorous.

Some suggest they do a act together, but not always standing up.

What an idiot, this Lindsey. I wonder about his “aggressive” approach to solve the economic crisis, failing wages, dismal jobs, education issues or the fact that America is falling way behind. This self-indulgence may have a place on SNL or Meet the press, or to conveniently surface when military funding is in the news, but is hardly presidential and is ill-fitting for a high-ranking Senator.

In the context and tone of his statement I don’t believe he was joking. I give a +10 to the baggy, oversized uniform.

Graham is popular - accept it March 13, 2015 at 10:33 am

If Graham is a warmonger then what is Putin? If you concede that Putin and the Supreme Leader are dangerous who would you have oppose them? Barry? That little french fucker? Cameron? There must be someone that meets your standards for opposing those crazy bastards because they will be coming, eventually. They may be Chinese, Russian, Iranian, North Korean, or a coalition but they will come. Collecting a debt or claiming land for a few hundred million Chinese to relieve over crowding,, they are coming.

The Clintons were accused of taking money from the Chinese while still in the white house. If you want to pass secrets to the Chinese, just let it be known that you are communicating via your own private server. Hell, they can take it from there.

Why people do not see how dangerous the Clintons and Obama are to the security of this nation is bewildering.

“If Graham is a warmonger then what is Putin? ”

Um … NOT a United States Senator, maybe?

I stopped reading after the idiotic first line.

Buz, do you really think Graham was serious and not hyperbole?
If it was just a bad joke, do you really think that is a reason to resign?

Update: Graham’s spokesperson has clarified to Bloomberg that when Graham said “I would literally use the military to keep them in if I had to,” that statement was “not to be taken literally.”
