Path of The Warrior

Calling For Secure Borders

In light of what drug & human smugglers and potential terrorists are willing to do, it would seem that securing the US borders, as the nation did during WWII, would be one of the most pressing National Security issue facing the Republic.   The below listed letter from a retired US Border Patrol Officer's to Us Senator Frist should be a reality check for all clear thinking American citizens, and it should have motivated Congress to finally take action to secure the US Borders, but it has not.  Unfortunately, Congress continues its inaction on this issue; the attached video documents how “Drug Mules” jack up a border fence, in order to smuggle drugs into the US. 

Arizona took action to protect its border, and should have been supported by the current resident of the White House.  However, most recently the Obama Administration has decided to punish Arizona for being granted the right, by the US Supreme Court, to have Arizona Law Enforcement Officers check the identity of illegal immigrants during a lawful traffic stops to determine if they are illegal immigrants and if they are listed on ICE’s national data base of criminal elements.  The Department of Homeland Security has been directed to prevent Arizona Law Enforcement Officers from working closely with ICE as they have in the past, when they used to check the identity of illegal immigrants to determine if they were potential terrorists, drug cartel smugglers, repeat criminal offenders intent on preying on Arizona residents, human smugglers, or in the US illegally when they were legally stopped during a traffic violation.  The Justice Department, at the direction of the current occupant of the White House, is intent on preventing the US Supreme Court’s ruling from becoming effective, and Attorney General Eric Holder has threatened to file suit against Arizona Law Enforcement Officers for civil rights violations to impede and/or overturn the US Supreme Court ruling.


Our nation continues to consume incredible quantities of heroin and other narcotics, thereby funding terrorism and transnational gangs that include some of the Mexican Cartels.  By not securing the nation’s borders we are unable to stop the flood of narcotics into our country, and by not effectively combatting drug use and drug addiction in the United States, we have, in a manner of speaking, become our own worst enemy.

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and other members of the Obama Administration including the President, himself, insist that the borders have never been more secure!  On May 10, 2011, President Obama went to the city of El Paso, Texas and mocked those who wanted our borders to finally be made secure.  Fox News reported on the President’s remarks including his assertion that those who want our borders made more secure would never be happy and might even demand that a moat be constructed and that alligators be put in that moat.

Border Patrol Officer's letter 

This letter was sent to Tennessee Senator Bill Frist by a retired border  patrol agent, and it has more common sense than recent comments made in the US Senate, with the exception of a some sensible comments made by a few representatives.

Dear Senator Frist:

There is a huge amount of propaganda and myths circulating about illegal aliens, particularly illegal Mexican, Salvadorian, Guatemalan and Honduran aliens.

#1. Illegal aliens generally do NOT want US citizenship. Americans are very vain thinking that everybody in the world wants to be a US citizen.  Mexicans, and other nationalities want to remain citizens of their  home countries while obtaining the benefits offered by the United States such as employment, medical care, instate tuition, government subsidized housing and free education for their offspring. Their main attraction is employment and their loyalty usually remains at home.  They want benefits earned and subsidized by middle class Americans. What illegal aliens want are benefits of American residence without paying the price. 

#2. There are no jobs that Americans won't do. Illegal aliens are doing jobs that Americans can't take and still support their families. Illegal aliens take low wage jobs, live dozens in a single residence home, share expenses and send money to their home country. There are no jobs that Americans won't do for a decent wage.

 #3. Every person who illegally entered this nation left a home. They are NOT homeless and they are NOT Americans. Some left jobs in their home countries. They come to send money to their real home as evidenced by the more than 20 billion dollars sent out of the country each year by illegal aliens. These illegal aliens knowingly and willfully entered this nation in violation of the law and therefore assumed the risk of detection and deportation. Those who brought their alien children assumed the responsibility and risk on behalf of their children.

#4. Illegal aliens are NOT critical to the economy. Illegal aliens constitute less than 5% of the workforce. However, they reduce wages and benefits for lawful US residents.

 #5. This is NOT an immigrant nation. There are 280 million native born Americans. While it is true that this nation was settled and founded by immigrants (legal immigrants), it is also true that there is not a nation on this planet that was not settled by immigrants at one time or another.

 #6. The United States is welcoming to legal immigrants. Illegal aliens are not immigrants by definition. The US accepts more lawful immigrants every year than the rest of the world combined.

#7. There is no such thing as the "Hispanic vote." Hispanics are white, brown, black and every shade in between. Hispanics are Republicans, Democrats, Anarchists, Communists, Marxists and Independents. The so-called "Hispanic vote" is a myth. Pandering to illegal aliens to get the Hispanic vote is a dead end.

#8. Mexico is NOT a friend of the United States . Since 1848 Mexicans have resented the United States . During World War I Mexico allowed German Spies to operate freely in Mexico to spy on the US . During World War II Mexico allowed the Axis powers to spy on the US from Mexico. During the Cold War Mexico allowed spies hostile to the US to operate freely. The attack on the Twin Towers in 2001 was cheered and applauded all across Mexico . Today Mexican school children are taught that the US stole California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. If you don't believe it, check out some Mexican textbooks written for their school children.

#9. Although some illegal aliens enter this country for a better life, there are 6 billion people on this planet. At least 1 billion of those live on less than one dollar a day. If wanting a better life is a valid excuse to break the law and sneak into America, then let's allow those one billion to come to America and we'll turn the USA into a Third World nation overnight. Besides, there are 280 million native born Americans who want a better life. I'll bet Bill Gates and Donald Trump want a better life. When will the USA lifeboat be full? Since when is wanting a better life a good reason to trash another nation?

#10. There is a labor shortage in this country. This is a lie. There are hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of American housewives, senior citizens, students, unemployed and underemployed who would gladly take jobs at a decent wage.

#11. It is racist to want secure borders. What is racist about wanting secure borders and a secure America? What is racist about not wanting people to sneak into America and steal benefits we have set aside for legal aliens, senior citizens, children and other legal residents? What is it about race that entitles people to violate our laws, steal identities, and take the American Dream without paying the price? For  about four decades American politicians have refused to secure our borders and look after the welfare of middle class Americans. These politicians have been of both parties. A huge debt to American society has resulted. This debt will be satisfied and the interest will be high.  There has already been riots in the streets by illegal aliens and their supporters. There will be more. You, as a politician, have a choice to offend the illegal aliens who have stolen into this country and demanded the rights afforded to US citizens or to offend those of us who are stakeholders in this country. The interest will be steep either way.
There will be civil unrest. There will be a reckoning. Do you have the  courage to do what is right for America ? Or, will you bow to the wants and needs of those who don't even have the right to remain here?
There will be a reckoning.

It will come in November of this year. We will not allow America to be stolen by third world agitators and thieves.

David J. Stoddard US Border Patrol (RET) Hereford, Arizona

Please pass this letter on to everyone you know, including your 
Senators and Congressmen. We must do something about this serious problem NOW!

The Out of Control and Reckless Spending by an Irresponsible Administration and Congress

Before we endorsed a Combat Veteran For Congress we ask them if they approve of and would agree to support our Mission Statement.  One of the precepts in the Mission Statement is to “rein in the out of control spending by Congress.”  Since 2009, we have endeavored to encourage Congress to rein in their reckless and out of control spending that has severely undercut the fiscal stability of the Republic over the last 25 years.  With the support of the Congress, the Obama Administration continues to shift the burden of repayment of $17+ trillion in debt onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.  We encourage you to click on the below listed link, to view and listen to Pierre Poilievre, a member of Canada’s Parliament, as he recounts how the US Congress recklessly continues to damage the security and financial stability of the Republic, and how he commends Canada’s leadership for not following the unsound and reckless example of the Obama Administration and the US Congress.

Very soon, we will again witness the lack of leadership of both parties in Congress, they will soon demonstrate their continued irresponsibility and lack of courage by putting off the vote to increase America’s debt limit, until after the November election, when they will again raise it.  That action will sustain Congress’ continued reckless fiscal policy, and will again, by their vote to permit the Obama Administration to incur more annual debt on the backs of American taxpayers than the nation will be able to generate in the Gross National Product.  That debt this year, for the first time in US history,  will exceed the annual Gross National Product of the Republic---that is the definition for bankruptcy for any individual or business. 

One other important point that is worth looking at, in order to clear up misinformation that has been emanating from the Obama Administration.  On page 7 of the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office’s review of 2008 and 2009 income/tax distribution in the US, it was reported that the top 20% of income earners in the United States are paying 94% of all the income tax revenue received by the federal government.  The lowest 40% of earners actually have an average income tax rate of below 0.  The lowest quintile is “taxed” at a rate of –9%, while the second lowest quintile is “taxed” at a rate of –2%.  Perhaps you will recall the frequently promoted talking point by the resident of the White House that there is an “income gap” between the “1%” and everyone else, and how the top 1% are not paying their fair share?  Well, that was mainly because the data used for that flawed discussion by the Obama campaign was taken from 2007 fiscal figures, when the republic was at the height of the boom, just as the Pelosi controlled Congress took over the financial reins.  As it turns out, those numbers were as fleeting as the real estate bubble. From 2007-2009, the income of the “top 1%” has actually dropped by 36%.  In addition, if the government took “all” the income (not just increased their taxes) of the top 1% earners in the country it would only fund the bloated and out of control government bureaucracy for 8 and ½ days---that is another dishonest and misleading presentation put forth by the resident of the White House to continue to generate class warfare and to further divide the American people—something no other President has ever done.

We encourage you to forward this message to all those in your address book who support the goal of reining in the irresponsible and out of control spending by the Congress.  In order to help fund that out of control spending and borrowing, the Obama Administration imposed the largest tax increase in history on “all” Americans by enacting the flawed Obama Health Care Bill.  Instead of cutting spending, and rooting out all fraud and abuse in a bloated out of control and expanding government bureaucracy, the Obama Administration gave the American people the largest tax increase in US History, and will continue to borrow and spend the Republic beyond bankruptcy.   The below listed quote of the decade should be of interest to all:

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that 'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

                              ~ Senator Barack H. Obama,  March 2006

Happy Fourth of July

The Fourth of July is also the birthday of every American Patriot; it is also “your” birthday each year.  When the opportunity presents itself, I encourage you to thank a Veteran for their service, and wish them a Happy Second Birthday on annual celebration of the “The Birth of The Nation”.  The vast majority of Veterans are respectful, hard-working, family oriented, and unassuming true American Patriots; for over 236 years Veterans have been an important part of the fabric that is the foundation of the Republic.   At one point in their life, a Veteran wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount “up to and including their life.”  We all know of military personnel who have given the last full measure of devotion to the Republic; and as you know, others have been seriously wounded and will be suffering with those disabling injuries for the remainder of their lives.  If more members of Congress were as dedicated to protecting and defending the US Constitution and to watching out for the welfare of the Republic as American Veterans have sworn to do, the Republic probably wouldn’t be in the very serious financial difficulty it finds itself in today because of the irresponsible out of control spending by Congress. 


 Americans Just Don't Understand Their Military

 The originator of the email forwarding this discussion called it an excellent piece of work, to which I add an Amen. Unfortunately, as happens too often, it arrives without credit to its author. What a damned shame.

They know what it means to serve: Acceptance

into West Point, or any military academy, is far from

easy to earn. Unfortunately, far too many Americans

don't comprehend what drives young men and women

to seek admission, or to enter the military under any

officer or enlisted program.

Americans don't understand what it means to serve

I remember the day I found out I got into West Point. My mom actually showed up in the hallway of my high school and waited for me to get out of class. She was bawling her eyes out and apologizing that she had opened up my admission letter. She wasn't crying because it had been her dream for me to go there. She was crying because she knew how hard I'd worked to get in, how much I wanted to attend, and how much I wanted to be an infantry officer. I was going to get that opportunity.

That same day, two of my teachers took me aside and essentially told me the following: Nick, you're a smart guy. You don't have to join the
military. You should go to college, instead.

I could easily write a tome defending West Point and the military as I
did that day, explaining that USMA is an elite institution, that separate from that it is actually statistically much harder to enlist in the military than it is to get admitted to college, that serving the nation is a challenge that all able-bodied men should at least consider for a host of reasons, but I won't.

What I will say is that when a 16-year-old kid is being told that attending West Point is going to be bad for his future then there is a dangerous disconnect in America , and entirely too many Americans have no idea what kind of burdens our military is bearing.

In World War II, 11.2% of the nation served in four years.

In Vietnam , 4.3% served in 12 years.

Since 2001, only 0.45% of our population has served in the Global War onTerror.

These are unbelievable statistics.

Over time, fewer and fewer people have shouldered more and more of the burden and it is only getting worse.

Our troops were sent to war in Iraq by a Congress consisting of 10% veterans with only one person having a child in the military.

Taxes did not increase to pay for the war. 

War bonds were not sold. 

Gas was not regulated. In fact, the average citizen was asked to sacrifice nothing, and has sacrificed nothing unless he has chosen to out of the goodness of his heart.

The only people who have sacrificed are the veterans and their
families. The volunteers. The people who swore an oath to defend this nation.

You stand there, deployment after deployment and fight on. You've
lost relationships, spent years of your lives in extreme conditions, years apart from kids you'll never get back, and beaten your body in a way that even professional athletes don't understand.

Then you come home to a nation that doesn't understand.

They don't understand suffering.

They don't understand sacrifice.

They don’t understand why we fight for them.

They don't understand that bad people exist.

They look at you like you're a machine - like something is wrong with
you. You are the misguided one -- not them.

When you get out, you sit in the college classrooms with political science teachers who discount your opinions on Iraq and Afghanistan because YOU WERE THERE and can't understand the macro issues they gathered from books because of your bias.

You watch TV shows where every vet has PTSD and the violent strain at that. 

Your Congress is debating your benefits, your retirement, and your pay, while they ask you to do more.

But the amazing thing about you is that you all know this. You know
your country will never pay back what you've given up.

You know that the populace at large will never truly understand or appreciate what you have done for them.

Hell, you know that in some circles, you will be thought as less than normal for having worn the uniform. But you do it anyway. 

You do what the greatest men and women of this country have done since 1775 -

YOU SERVED. Just that decision alone makes you part of an elite group.

"Never in the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few." – Winston Churchill


LYONS: Bureaucracy Rules the Waves

The below listed article is an outstanding analysis of the flawed Law of the Seas Treaty (LOST) by Admiral James A. Lyons, Jr., USN (Ret).  LOST encompasses and takes control of economic and technology interests in all the oceans of the world, and will “REDISTRIBUTES WEALTH” from the developed to undeveloped nations, will restrict freedom of navigation, will impact the maritime security of the US Navy by establishing exclusive economic zones, will pre-empt the 2nd Amendment by allowing the confiscation of privately held firearms of all US citizen’s under this anti US Constitution UN Treaty mandate, and will suppress the Free Enterprise System by creating oppressive environmental regulations for the Republic.  The resident of the White House has agreed to do what no other US President has ever agreed to do; he has agreed to transfer islands off the coast of Alaska with the surrounding territorial oil rich waters that the United States has sovereignty over to Russia for no reason or for no compensation.  The United States sovereignty would be subjugated, in many of the oceans of the world, to the supernatural government that is chartered by the United Nations under the 1982 Convention.   Admiral Lyons thorough analysis discusses the flaws, dangers, and reasons why the United States Senate should not ratify the LOST Treaty.  Ratifying this LOST Treaty will not only take away the “Liberties and Freedoms” our Founding Father provided for us and our posterities 236 years ago, it will also give control of the oceans of the world covering 2/3rd of the earth’s surface to a small United Nations committee dominated by 41 land locked Third World Nations who have consistently opposed the votes of the United States in the United Nations.

The LOST Treaty is being aggressively pushed by the current resident of the White House, Senator John Kerry, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Senator Harry Reid in order to have it ratified before the November 2012 election by a lame duck Democratically controlled Senate; we watched that same play in in 2008 when the flawed Obama Health Care Bill was passed by a Democratic controlled Lame Duck Congress----the American voters can’t let that happened a second time, and they should hold every US Senator, regardless of party,  who votes for it, to be held to account and made to pay for supporting Socialism.    Kindly forward Admiral Lyon’s analysis to your US Senators and inform both of them that if they vote for ratification of the LOST Treaty, that you will oppose their reelection now or in the future when they stand for re-election.   The US Navy has been exercising “Freedom of Navigation” on the high seas for 236 years (the war of 1812 with Great Britain was fought to guarantee that freedom, now we have been provided with the names of Republican US Senators who are planning to vote to eliminate that precious freedom); the US does not need to seek the permission of a committee of Third World Nations in the UN to navigate the oceans of the world. 

LYONS: Bureaucracy rules the waves

U.N. treaty would grant naval rights U.S. already exercises

The Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) Will Give Control of the Seas to a Committee in the UN Dominated by Third World Nations

No individual in their right mind would give control of 2/3rd of the earth’s surface to a small committee in the UN controlled by land locked Third World nations. That is the latest lame brained scheme being pushed by the Obama Administration.  The UN annually will charge the US untold millions of dollars for permits to do prospecting for seabed mineral mining, exploring and drilling for oil, and for fishing rights, as well as requiring payment of taxes on a percentage of the profits generated from the efforts of US firms involved in the Free enterprise system.  The US should be free to develop ocean resources as all nations have done for over 4000 years.  In addition the LOST Treaty will transfer islands and territory off the coast of Alaska, rich in oil to Russia.

We encourage all Americans who believe in the independence of the Republic and want to retain their freedoms as outlined in the US Constitution, to inform your US Senators that you strongly oppose the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST).   You and American citizens like you are the fundamental strength of this Republic, please pass this E-mail on to all those in your address book who will join you in opposing this LOST Treaty.   Your US Senator should be informed that the American voters want to retain the basic freedoms that our Founding Fathers gave us 236 years ago, we want to continue to be independent, and oppose being dominated by the UN.

Federal Budget---T​hird Year in a Row

For the third year in a row, the Democrat controlled US Senate, in league with the Obama Administration, has refused to propose a formal budget for the US Government in clear violation of federal law.  If any business entity applied for a loan and asked to borrow 43 cents of every dollar they proposed to spend, without presenting the bank with a budget to outline proposed spending, the application would be rejected—yet for the third time in history, the current Democrat controlled Senate has refused to present a budget for their banker, the American people, to confer with the proposed House budget over the last three years.  Out of control and irresponsible spending has driven the Republic into an additional $5 trillion in debt over the last 3 and ½ years, and unless the American people can rein in spending by the Congress and the Obama Administration, our grandchildren will never be able to repay or extricate the Republic from the mounting debt.  By the end of his 4th year in office, the current occupant of the White House will have driven the nation into nearly $6 trillion in additional debt—more debt than all US Presidents collectively have spent in the 236 year history of the Republic.  The out of control spending is the most dangerous threat facing the survival of the Republic.  In November 2012, every members of Congress, who has failed to resist the out of control spending, should be removed from office by American voters who care about the nation’s future and the survival of the Republic.

Not Only On Memorial Day, Let Us "Never Forget"

 A commentary to “Never Forget” the extraordinary service in Combat by US Navy SEALS and the US Armed Forces by Jenna Lee, a Fox News Anchorwoman.

Two of the 36 endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress, GySgt Nick Popaditch, USMC (Ret) and Senator John McCain (POW), were seated on either side of Gov Mitt Romney at a Memorial Day Tribute, where 5000 Veterans and supporters gathered at the Veteran’s Memorial adjacent to the Balboa Naval Hospital in San Diego.  If you click on the below listed link, you will be able to view GySgt Popaditch’s address reminding those in attendance to “Never Forget” the long history of extraordinary service in Combat by US Marines.                           

While you are reading this message, that truly extraordinary service in Combat continues now by all members of the US Armed Forces, in Afghanistan and on other foreign shores; let us “Never Forget” their dedicated service in defense of the Republic.                         

On Memorial Day For Vietnam Veterans and Their Families

The below listed link to Gen Anthony Zini, USMC (Ret), former Commander, US Central Command, is an outstanding presentation that should be viewed by all family members of Vietnam Veterans.  In reflection when we returned from multiple tours of duty in Vietnam, we were faced with a hostile left of center liberal media establishment, abusive demonstrators with that peace symbol created in 1958 by Eric Austin of Kensington for the Communist Party to falsely portray peace (while their true objective was our defeat in Vietnam), but as shocking as those offensive demonstrators were, there were also many Americans who didn’t seem to care about the returning Wounded Warriors, Veterans with multiple tours, the well-being of incarcerated POWs in Hanoi, or the sacrifices our families were going thru.  On this Memorial Day and often, we remember and “Honor” all who served in Vietnam, especially those who have now passed on.  One fine example is a courageous US Marine, Col John Ripley (Navy Cross/Silver Star/Bronze Star/Purple Heart), who made that now famous stand in the annals of the US Marine Corps on the Bridge at Dong Ha.  Only 1/3 of the Vietnam Veterans who answered the call to duty survive.   We remind all Americans this Memorial Day that the US Military never lost a major engagement in Vietnam, then had a Democrat controlled Congress vote to cut off financial support for ammunitions while we were actually still in combat, we were often spit upon when we returned home by hippie demonstrators, and we never had a welcome home or thank you.  We were so young.


Combat Heroes do not seek credit!

Combat Heroes do not seek credit!

It is Combat Heroes who put their lives on the line! 

True Combat Heroes do not politicize their acts of valor! 

The current resident of the White House continue to employ mass TV advertisements, continues to do multiple TV specials/interviews, and initiated a live national broadcast from the “safety’ of  the largest secure combat base in Afghanistan, about what “I”. “Me”, “HE” did.  While those personnel in the Special Operations community of the military know, President Bush initiated a well-coordinated program 10 years ago, to execute a worldwide intelligence gathering mission, to approve a skillful enhanced interrogation operation to patiently & persistently extract information from captured terrorists in the Brig at the US Naval Base in Guantanamo Cuba, and it took many years of training and dangerous combat operations for members of SEAL Team SIX to become fully prepared for the operation he continues to brag about.  According to senior Flag Officers in the Pentagon, it was the skillful planning by SEAL Admiral William McRaven, Commander of the Joint Operations Command (JSOC), and many weeks of painstaking precision rehearsals by SEAL Team SIX, that led Admiral McRaven “to decide” to execute the mission.  That operation had to be approved by the person who keeps spiking the football.  No other US President in 235 years has ever tried to shamelessly take a substantial amount of credit for what the military does in very dangerous and risky Special Operations in Combat.  “He”, “I”, Me” continues to spike the football in the end zone when he wasn’t even on the field, yet continues, tongue in cheek, relentless decreases the Defense Budget, is increasing the charge to military personnel & Veterans over the next 2 years for their health care by 300%, and is marginalizing the finest US Military establishment in history by instilling touchy feely social programs, which are negatively affecting unit cohesion, military discipline, and combat effectiveness. 

President Obama's Plans to Share US Missile Defense Secrets With Russia

In Investor Business, it was reported that President Obama plans to share sensitive Aegis ballistic missile defense data with Russia; this was very disturbing article for me to read after the loss of so many of my classmates and men I served with in defense of the Republic.  In the follow on letter dated March 26, 2012, Congressman Mike Turner, Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Strategic Forces, asks the President for an “urgent explanation of [his] comments to President Medvedev in Seoul, where the president stated in regard to missile defense in Europe that “this is my last election, and after my election I'll have more flexibility.”  “As the Chairman of the Strategic Forces Subcommittee, which authorizes U.S. missile defense and nuclear weapons policy, I want to make it perfectly clear that my colleagues and I will not allow any attempts to trade missile defense of the United States to Russia or any other country,” wrote Turner.

Congress has included in the FY 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, which the president has signed into law, a provision constraining his ability to share classified U.S. missile defense information with the Russian Federation. Congress took this step because it was clear based upon official testimony and the Obama Administration’s comments in the press that classified information about U.S. missile defenses, including hit-to-kill technology and velocity at burnout information, may be on the table as negotiating leverage for President Obama’s reset with Russia.  

“Despite signing the FY12 defense authorization legislation into law, you then issued a signing statement signaling that you may treat the provision protecting U.S. missile defense information as non-binding.  This morning’s comments, on top of that action, suggests that you and your administration have plans for U.S. missile defenses that you believe will not stand up to electoral scrutiny,” added Turner.

Please listen to the President’s own words by clicking on this link ; he says he will have no restrictions on negotiating US Missile Defense issues with Russia after the election.  My first thought was, what else will he have no restrictions on doing to the Free Enterprise System and this delicate Republic in violation of Congressional measures signed into law and in violation of the precepts of the US Constitution after the election?
