Didn't John Kerry and a few others in the Senate pass something thursday that sought to further prevent this traitorous, ill-advised trip that the White House asked them not to take as well???
I just don't get it. How come these clowns get to "go rogue"??? and have no price to pay???we need to step up the law enforcement in the area of the Capitol Building ---this creeps me out even more to know that these goobers have those C-street connections--fake christians helping with a military takeover/dictator ...to what end we can only speculate..is there some product in Honduras that will make them millions???

Maybe the idea is to let him go! No it wasn't the White House it was senate minority leader Mitch McConnell who gave him premission through some kind of loophole in the system. I hope he goes and is arrested the moment he steps back on American soil!

The ousted president is the dictator. He wants to change the constitution so that he can stay in power(like Chavez of Venezuela) .

Here's hoping DeMint gets his Waterloo.

DeMint Defiantly Leads GOP Delegation To Meet With Illegitimate Honduran Post-Coup Government
Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) has announced that he will be visiting Honduras today to meet with the de facto regime of acting Honduran President Roberto Micheletti in sheer defiance of the position taken by the US government and international community. Not a single nation has recognized Micheletti’s government, but Washington Note’s Steve Clemons explains that DeMint is intent on taking Honduran matters into his own hands:

Jim DeMint is acting on behalf of, in cahoots with, and against the foreign policy of the United States of America in encouraging post-coup Honduran government officials defy the United States. He is encouraging a political leadership which has no legitimacy and which not recognized by other democracies in the region — while the ousted President makes cell phone UN General Assembly statements from a couch-bed in the Brazilian Embassy in Tegucigalpa.

The Logan Act forbids “unauthorized citizens” from negotiating with foreign governments. In a 1936 Supreme Court ruling, Justice Sutherland wrote that “the President alone has the power” and “the Senate cannot intrude, and Congress itself is powerless to invade it.”

How is this not a violation of the Logan Act. Remember when Pelosi went to Syria in 2007 and the right wanted her investigated and accused her of committing a felony.

I found this on DeMints website. President Obama and Democrats need to take actions to remove him from office.




DeMint Statement on Fact-Finding Trip to Honduras


October 2, 2009 - WASHINGTON, D.C - Today, U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina), a member of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Chairman of the Senate Steering Committee, made the following statement after he returned from a fact-finding mission to Honduras. Senator DeMint led a delegation of U.S. Congressmen including Aaron Schock (R-Illinois), Peter Roskam (R-Illinois), and Doug Lamborn (R-Colorado). They met with Honduran President Roberto Micheletti, members of the Honduran Supreme Court, leading candidates for the upcoming November 29 elections, election officials, and Honduran business and civic leaders.

"We had a very productive trip, and we will have more to say next week after we have briefed our colleagues in the House and Senate. But for now, I can say that we saw a government working hard to follow the rule of law, uphold its constitution, and to protect democracy for the people of Honduras. We are very encouraged by what we saw and we hope to be able to work with our administration to support the upcoming elections,” said Senator DeMint.

Take a deep breath!

Honduras is not an enemy of the US. DeMint went there to do a fact finding mission which is part of his job as a member of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committe

Is telling the illegal leaders of the coup to resist the US, President Obama, part of his job as a member of the US Senate FRC? What facts was he there to find? Considering his past statements, are we really suppose to trust his reasons for going?

The recent events in Honduras represents a new dream for right-wingers in America - that a military-led coup will make everything better.

Hopefully we won't let this get out of hand.

And I do find it interesting that these people, who loudly praise their own patriotism, while accusing others of being un-American, would embrace such an ideal.

Not only are they unwilling to do the actual messy work of overthrowing the government (they're content to outsource that to the military), they are also eager to give up rights of free speech and public gathering (an inevitable consequence of military rule), the very freedoms they currently use to advocate sedition (Tea Parties, 912 stuff). Is that ironic or what?

So what happens when the military decides it's easier not to have a constitution?

I truly believe they will use it as a blueprint if they could.

If he goes, DeMint will be guilty of sedition and should suffer the consequences.

If he doesn't come back, we'll finally understand why the new administration didn't totally do away with "extraordinary rendition."

Is hair dye less expensive in Honduras ?

Any politician who goes his own way and opposes the standing policy of the U.S., should be stripped of all leadership rights, mostly Committee positions. DeMint is trying to embarrass Obama. The Republicans in the Senate and House will do anything, regardless of the harm to our Country, to be as defiant against this present Administration.

I don't believe any Congress person who receives money from Corporations, Countries, or Businesses should be able to have a say in any decisions regarding interests of those who donated to them. For the average American it is called CONFLICT OF INTEREST.
