I was told today by the Senate Armed Services Committee that the defense authorization bill, with hate bill attached, will not be considered for final approval in the Senate until “the end of this week or early next week.” The House passed the defense bill last Thursday.
This means lovers of freedom may have close to another week to repeatedly email the President demanding he fulfill his promise to veto the defense bill request for $100 billion in extra spending for thousands of F-35 warplane engines.
The entire defense bill is $663 billion, which Obama has criticized as exorbitant. He says it reflects requirements of the Cold War 30 years ago rather than what is necessary to combat Taliban terrorism in the Mid-East today.
Encourage Obama NOW that you and thousands of Americans stand behind him in veto of the defense bill. Demonstrate that our voting power vastly exceeds that of either ADL, architect of the hate bill, or the homosexual lobby.
Obama, like every politician, knows every call or email stands for 1000 voters who feel the same way but don’t believe they can make a difference.
With healthcare debate still preoccupying the Senate, there is an excellent chance the defense/hate bill will not reach the President for another week.
Over the last six days on 18 national interviews I have challenged millions to email the President. Millions are now aware of his veto pledge. Thousands have responded. Let’s create a last-minute flash flood of protest and encouragement of Obama in the direction he has repeatedly said he wants to go — sending back to Congress what he calls a bloated, outdated defense bill. Let’s encourage him to convey this message to Congress concerning the hate bill: “Yes, I’ve supported the hate bill and promised to sign it but not at the cost of indenturing the American people to another $100 billion in wasteful spending. Go ahead and pass the hate bill again but as stand-alone legislation on its own merits.”
Of course, a second passage in Congress would be highly unlikely. An unpopular Democrat Congress is even now gearing up to make itself more popular in anticipation of midterm elections next year. The last thing Democrats want is to again be bombarded with accusations they want to pass “the pedophile protection act.”
Email these messages daily until the hate bill is vetoed:
• Mr. President, I will vote out Democrats at midterms if you sign the freedom-destroying federal hate crimes bill.
• Mr. President, I expect you to keep your promise to veto any military authorization bill that wastes $100 billion of taxpayers’ money on unnecessary F-35 jet engines.
Send these two messages in separate emails. You may cut and paste them in at www.whitehouse.gov/contact.
If for no other reason, taxpayers in a depression economy should demand veto of an unnecessary $100 billion F-35 engine deal designed to enrich and make the defense industry happy but not the taxpayers. The Pentagon, as well as the President, has rejected it as unnecessary. The fact that the defense bill also contains a hate bill leading directly to an end of free speech ought to provide double incentive to email the above messages to Obama immediately.
You don’t even have to type them in. Just cut and paste at the above link.
A few clicks of your mouse could save freedom.
