    Petition: US House of Representatives: Remove Michele Bachmann from the Intelligence Committee


    https://www.change.org/petitions/us-house-of-representatives-remove-michele-bachmann-from-the-intelligence-committee

    "As a sitting member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence, Rep. Michele Bachmann has a security clearance. Through her long record of inflammatory accusations against Americans based on race, religion, ethnicity, or alleged questionable associations with non-existent 'enemies,' she has demonstrated an obscene lack of maturity, knowledge of the law, understanding of the US Constitution and Bill of Rights, and of rational thought.

    Rep. Bachmann has recently made baseless accusations in a Joseph McCarthy-esque style about an infestation of our government by the Muslim Brotherhood. She has accused Huma Abedin, Deputy Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (and wife of former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner), and her family, who are Muslims, of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. ( http://veracitystew.com/2012/07/17/ellison-to-xenophobe-bachmann-put-your-money-where-your-mouth-is/ ) What does Rep. Bachmann's "evidence" consist of? Rep. Bachmann's supposed "evidence" is solely based on erroneous and unsubstantiated rumor, and primarily information from notorious Islamaphobe Frank Gaffney. ( http://veracitystew.com/2012/07/18/sowing-the-seeds-of-hatred-wreaking-havoc-the-bachmann-way/ )

    Rep. Bachmann's latest hate mongering is final proof that she is unqualified to hold a security clearance or sit on the House Intelligence Committee, which requires handling sensitive matters vital to the security of the American people. Rep. Bachmann has a pattern of questionable judgement, and irresponsible and emotionally unstable behavior.

    We demand that Speaker Boehner immediately remove Rep. Bachmann from the House Intelligence Committee without delay."

    Signed!

    And this woman is just plain crazy. I'm not sure how her district can continue to support someone who belongs in a mental institution because she lacks the ability to control herself.

    Enjoy this link to more of her stupid quotes:

    Do any folks at least research opposing opinions before making a decision or did you just sign without asking any questions?

    As a result of Bachmann's irresponsible attacks, Abedin is now getting threats and has been provided with police protection.
    BTW, the right-wing conspiracy-theory videos that Bachmann cites as her "evidence" also implicate conservative messiah Grover Norquist, who supposedly helped the Moslem Brotherhood (their crazy claim, not mine) -- even their own heroes are not safe from the insane witch hunts.

    Every Repub should sign this and fight to have Bachmann removed and stripped of any position or part in the Repub party.

    Bachmann is a batshit crazy - totally non-credible - person who makes the Repub party look like shit.

    It's in the best interest of the Repub party to distance itself from her and the rest of the far-right loons who take up so much space and attention within the Repub party.

    Its amazing to me how our Conservaposse Gays can go even further right than most republicans in defense of these high school girlish attention getting pranks of Bachmann's. The GOD DAMN woman is an embarrassment to our country, yet these guys 'claim' superior inteligence in their partisan backing of her likes and still expect their opinions to be held as credible.

    With friends among us like these, who support such bigoted idiots as Bachmann, who the hell needs enemies.

    I guess Mc Cain didnt huh? And he has the 'documents' in his hand! do you? I didnt think so.

    And McCain impassionedly said as much: "To say that the accusations made in both documents are not substantiated by the evidence they offer is to be overly polite and diplomatic about it. It is far better, and more accurate, to talk straight: These allegations about Huma, and the report from which they are drawn, are nothing less than an unwarranted and unfounded attack on an honorable citizen, a dedicated American, and a loyal public servant."

    Do you always agree with McCain's opinion or only when convenient? Have you read other viewpoints? "I didnt think so." icon_lol.gif



    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    It doesn't take but one viewpoint to know that there's a problem with this accustion and that is the one that started the conspiracy theory, Bachman herself.

    As soon as that desperate attention seeker opens her mouth with such bullshit, verifying that her words are baseless exagerations and lies takes little work. Its her MO to base her accusations on ignorant half baked theories to influence the ignorant christian fundi's.

    The God Damn lieing woman has no business representing even high schoolers let alone being in Congress and on such an important Committee. As has been said before, the stupid woman is an embarrassment to the US.

    PS, its good to know the Old Geezer above reads close enough to catch spelling errors, maybe something will sink in that way.

    This shows that even Conservatives in her area are disgusted over Bachmann's latest bullshit.


    Posted on July 19, 2012

    by Jaci Smith





    She should be ashamed. We should be ashamed for her.

    Simply put Michele Bachmann is out of line. She is so far out of line that she risks negating all of the work she has put in building a successful political career and risks shadowing the accomplishments she has contributed to our state.





    The issue is Bachmann’s recent accusations in letters to various U.S. government agencies demanding they look into alleged Muslim Brotherhood infiltration at the highest levels of our country. She is targeting the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, the Department of Justice and the Office of Director of National Intelligence. The letters suggest coverups and collusion that if true would border on treason. She has to know that the letters are based upon virtually no evidence and that her accusations can only inflame passions and cause wasted efforts and resources at the targeted agencies.

    Worse, she also sent a letter to the Department of State singling out an individual whose only apparent wrongdoing is that she is from a Muslim family. You might remember the name Huma Abedin. She is the woman Bachmann questions the loyalty of. She is also the former wife of the disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner and one of the top aides to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Bachmann contends Abedin is a target of the Brotherhood and implies that the State Department has taken “actions recently … favorable to the Muslim Brotherhood and its interests.” Through association Bachmann implies the fault lies at the feet of Abedin.

    The accusations directed toward the agencies are bad enough. They are inflammatory, unproductive and so thinly supported that they seem childishly foolish. One can only think Bachmann’s political career is going badly enough that she has to resort to outlandish actions just to bring her name back into public view. Most of us have experienced this when our children act out just to get more of our attention.

    The personal attack directed toward Abedin goes to another level. At best the attack is mean-spirited and selfish targeting of a woman that, according to some of the most conservative members of our government, does an excellent job for our country only in order to provide Bachmann with media fodder. At worst the attacks are bigoted, unfair, inflammatory and far below the behavior we should expect from our elected representatives. Bachmann’s accusations have a ring of McCarthyism and the nature of beliefs that led to the internment of people of Japanese heredity in WWII. They mirror the type of comments Hitler made about Jews individually and as a group of religious believers. They echo the tirades of the cruelest despots the world has known. Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Italians, Irish, Germans and members of almost every other religion or ethnic group have endured ridiculous accusations simply because of their beliefs or ethnicity. The attacks were wrong then and they are wrong now.

    We all know bigotry should not happen. So does Michele Bachmann. Bigotry, intolerance and blatantly unfounded accusations have no place in a position at the level of the one she holds.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    She should be ashamed. We should be ashamed for her. She should apologize or consider resigning.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++




    EVEN IN THE FACE OF THE ABOVE, OUR RJ GAY CONSERVAPOSSE STILL SUPPORTS SUCH IGNORANCE, but by all means partner up with Bachmann and VOTE REPUBLICAN

    No it doesn't, but where is the proof that they are? There is none.

    Speaking of infiltration...isn't it about time we smoked out the Christian Zealots in government? Starting with Michelle Bachmann. Signed.
