Sean Hannity's "Victory" List: NSA

In a list of items enumerating Sean Hannity's ideas for an ideal political party and its ideal candidate, under the heading, "To be the party of National security," was found the following clause, second in the list:

"...Fully support NSA, Patriot act, tough interrogations, keeping Gitmo open."

Hannity apparently "fully supports" the National Security Agency, whose reputation has been repeatedly besmirched by whistleblowers concerned with the agency's lack of self-control when it comes to respecting Americans' privacy.

Thomas Tamm is one of those whistleblowers. As a former lawyer in the Department of Justice's Office of Intelligence Policy and Review, he was inadevertantly placed in a position of supporting top secret, unconstitutional wiretapings and interceptions of private American's emails, or blowing the whistle on an admittedly "illegal project" within the federal government.

Tamm sided with the Constitution, and he literally sneaked around "like a spy" to get to a payphone in order to contact The New York Times with his information. Others came forward to confirm Tamm's story, and, more than a year afterwards, The New York Times finally ran the story. Tamm resigned in 2006, and his home has since been raided by the FBI, his family interrogated, and his personal property confiscated. The full account may be read at Newsweek.

So, Sean Hannity, who will not rule out a Presidential run in 2012, would like this to continue. Afterall, we are supposed to be afraid of those cavement in Afghanistan and Iraq, right?

Think he'd make a good President? More on this later.

I do not think Hannity would make a good president simply because he supports things like the PATRIOT act, which means he either a) does not know what the PATRIOT act is, which I doubt, or b) he has no regard for the Constitution. I'm afraid I couldn't vote for him simply on that basis.

As I would not belong to a church whose pastor questioned the relevance of the Bible at every turn, I would not elect a man to President of the United States who disposed of his own country's laws.

So far I haven't seen too much about Hannity that I don't like, (of course I don't all THAT much about him) but if he ran for president tomorrow, I think I would vote for him.

Don't kill me for that!

Son3 said...

If he ran for President tomorrow, he would be in violation of the Constitution, which states that a Presidential election must be held every four years; the last election was in November of 2008, so he'll just have to wait until 2012.

(Man, am I cheesy or what?)

He hates Ron Paul's guts, and makes fun of anyone who mentions the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg meetings, the Bohemian Grove, the Trilateral Commission, etc.

I won't kill you, but do you mind if I merely maim you with the facts?

Isn't maiming someone a violation of your comment rules?

*hands on hips*

Now you shall have no pie. ...Oh, the rest of us won't either, because there is no pie. You shall have no more butterscotch chocolate chip cookies.

Now I'm all by my lonesome!

Johann Van De Leeuw said...

Sorry....I'm a no compromise type.
I don't hold with beatin' up on the Constitution.

Son3 said...

Yeah, Rebecca, you're on your way to a Knucklehead Award! Wouldn't you be all a-lonesome then!

*Kidding all over the place!*

You can vote for a Statist if you want, it's a free blog!
