Representative Trent Frank has called for Congressional hearings on Barack Obama’s caught on mic comments to Dmitri Medvedev. Obama said he wanted the Russians to give him space on missile defense so that after the election he could have freedom to act.
From CNS News:
Rep. Trent Frank (R.-Ariz.), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, says Congress should hold a hearing to examine the inadvertantly recorded remarks in which President Barack Obama asked outgoing Russian President and soon-to-be Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to ask incoming Russian President Vladimir Putin to give Obama some "space" because he will have "more flexibility" after the November presidential election here in the United States.
Franks described Obama’s remarks as “outrageous” and an “outright betrayal of his fundamental duty as president.” Consequently, he said, Congress should seek to determine what Obama’s actual policy is compared to what he is telling the American people and America’s NATO allies.
“This issue certainly rises to the level deserving a congressional hearing,” Franks told CNSNews.com in a written response on Tuesday. “The American people and our allies need clarification of the administration’s policy on missile defense and national security in general. I know the House Strategic Forces Subcommittee is looking into possibly holding a hearing on this. Hopefully, they'll be able to find some time in the schedule for the administration to provide clarity on their missile defense policy.”
Obama has a policy on our Missile Defense. It is call unilateral surrender. He left our European allies out to dry and pulled missile defense from Poland and the Czech Republic.
The Russians have had a goal since the days of Reagan to stop our missile defense . Obama in his zeal to disarm America wants to do just that.
Does anyone believe that if Obama is reelected he will do anything that is in America’s interest?
The Obama Regime has discussed sharing classified data about our missiles with the Russian.
A senior State Department official this week revealed the Obama administration’s plan for working with Russia on missile defenses.
Prior to the president’s controversial remarks in a conversation with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev on missile defense, Ellen Tauscher, State Department special envoy for strategic stability and missile defense, said in a Monday speech to a missile defense conference that she has been working with Russian negotiators to reach “mutually beneficial areas of cooperation.”
She outlined a program of giving Russia access to missile defense tests and furthering talks she said are aimed at getting Moscow “inside the tent.”
Tausher has faced criticism from Congress for her past secret dealings with Russia that raised concerns about negotiated limits on missile defense. A draft agreement drawn up by her State Department office prior to a summit meeting last year of G-8 leaders at Deauville, France was pulled back from signing over White House lawyers’ concerns it would legally bind missile defenses.
“This could be a game-changer for European security and for U.S.-Russian relations,” she said. “And any cooperative agreement will not limit our ability to deploy missile defense systems, and it can and will be done in a way that doesn’t compromise our commitment to NATO missile defense and all four phases of the EPAA.”
Why do we even care about cooperation with the Russians? Reagan did not He simply spent them into bankruptcy. Reagan and the west stood and the Soviets were vanquished.
Unfortunately, the current President is an Anti-American Marxist who would rather see America fall than see America triumphant.
Lets see if they hold the hearings. They probably won't, because none of them have the stones to do it. If they do then I'll stand corrected. I'm sure Boehner will be furiously waving his white flag, whining on how mean everybody is. Boehner please do us a favor put your flag down, shut your pie hole, and take a very very long smoke break, say for the next 20 years.
Numb I'm telling you, nothing is above this idiot and yet nobody cares to address the eligibility issue and put this idiot where he belongs. There are those that are becomming more aggressive by the day with no DOJ to bring them down. We could have fighting in the streets before the election and should it start there is no telling if it will end. Numb and nobody cares. HE IS NOT ELIGIBLE TO HOLD THE OFFICE......can you hear me now!? THIS GUY IS A CRIMINAL AND ALL THAT ARE ALLOWING HIM TO STAY THERE ARE AS WELL.....can you hear me now!?
Jimmy I'm with you on this, my question is the same as yours. When is somebody in Congress going to grow the stones to do something. The way I see it nobody will until he's out of office if then.
Jimmy: You are so right. No one took action when it became obvious that Obama actions did not fit in with our American system and let him serve, obey and continue to make our country the laughing stock of the world, all by plan. I hope were not yet too far under to crawl out of what may be ahead. There is a question that I have been hearing many times that there likely will not be an election, a war instead. Who is going to think that it will be an easy out if he looses. Fraud, Fraud, Fraud.
You can bet if Congress doesn't get off their collective butts and begin solving the problems they've caused there will be war. It's going to make the body count from the Civil War look like a bar fight.
Please do not forget the other half of congress, led by dirty harry who owes his soul to the company store---
RE ELIGIBILITY...CHECK THIS OUT....
obama is not a U.S. born citizen and until we all see a real birth certificate and not some fake live birth paper I will believe our elected officals have sold us out. Transparency remember?Lets see obama's occidental college records.Did obama take fulbright foundation money given only to those who claim foreign citizenship? Treason right?Transparency right?Cover up by the white house? Its wake up time. obamacare is also unconstitutional so how can the vote even be close?Our supreme court justices like kagan and ginsberg have their own agenda and its not upholding our U.S.Constitution.
Guy, I'm with ya, but............who is gonna act executively against Ovomitt? Our Senators and Congressmen are onboard with him; they don't care or they are in it with him for some unknown motivation. Our Founding Fathers never envisioned a total Coup like this. Some folks say, the only way out is armed resistance, but thats going to tear the country apart. What can we do to get Congress to stop talking ship to us and making fun of us by calling us names and do their jobs??? Does ANYONE have an idea??
It's about time Congress holds this President's feet to the fire and make him accountable for his anti-American actions. The question is will they do it?
I learned in school that the POTUS had to be a natural born citizen. I didn't vote for Obama but I wonder if some of the people who did would have done so if we knew that Congress had not vetted the man. We have had 3 years to learn what happens when you have a person who is not eligible for the office because they do not have a loyalty to America. It's time to do something about it; especially when he is "giving aid to our enemies." He is not only putting America in danger but our allies also! He has almost distroyed this country; do you realize what more he can do by November? This man is dangerous. He doesn't believe in our laws. He expects us to obey them but he and his minions are above the law.
Do not forget that the leaders of Congress, botox nancy and dirty harry told us that little barry was qualified to run and hold the office---
Investigate, and do not be afraid to I-M-P-E-A-C-H!
