GOP Chairman Walks Out Of Raucous Hearing

The Republican chairman walked off with the gavel, leaving Democrats shouting into turned-off microphones at a raucous hearing Friday on the Patriot Act

Good for him ! LOL !
GOP chairman halts Patriot Act hearing
when four witnesses picked by the Democrats began broad denunciations of Bush's war on terrorism and the condition of detainees at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, Chairman James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., showed his pique.

"We ought to stick to the subject," the chairman scolded at the end. "The Patriot Act has nothing to do with Guantánamo Bay. The Patriot Act has nothing to do with enemy combatants. The Patriot Act has nothing to do with indefinite detentions."

Damn straight. If the Demoncrats can't keep to the subject then to hell with them. Good to see someone has had enough of their nonsense.

CSPAN has it all on video.
This is a great watch. He really gives them a good tongue lashing ! You have got to watch this !

Let me thank the Chairman for convening the hearing even though he's doing it by the rules and he's being a bit testy - Mel Watt

Oh, I see, he just cut off Dan Lungren (R) when he ran out of time the same as he did to everyone. It seemed pretty balanced to me. "even though he's doing it by the rules" Doesn't that just say it all ? I mean really. How pathetic is it when you complain about the Chairman following the rules ? I found it interesting that Mr. Watt could not think of one thing to ask the "witnesses".


These "witnesses" kept droning on and on about torture committed by our government and our armed forces; yet they were never able to site one example of actual torture. Humiliation... sure. Torture ? No. And the "examples" they alluded to had nothing to do with the Patriot Act.

Trent Franks had a good point. The detention of aliens happened before the passage of the Patriot Act. Therefore the Patriot Act had nothing to do with it. Besides, aliens have no rights under the Constitution. Only Citizens do.

The numbers appear to go must higher. - James Zogby

Oh. they appear. Well. appearances are fact for Moonbats.

Horrific treatment
But again, no proof. Huh.
Isn't a fact that those being held in Guantanamo Bay are not being detained by any authority contained in the Patriot Act. Point in fact: if the Patriot Act was repealed today, would it have any effect on the detainees in Guantanamo Bay at all ? - Trent Franks

Nope. But hey ! The Demoncrats want to change the subject ! How unfair of the Rebublicans to stick to the discussion at hand !
Regulations, memos I can't point to because we haven't seen them in writing. But we know it exists. - Carlina Tapia-Ruano

Then she goes on to "quote" documents that she has never seen ! She actually said Quote ! WTF ? This passes for testimony ? She should work for SeeBS ! Even if these documents exist... WTF does it have to do with the Patriot Act ? NOTHING
You haven't seen them but you magically know they exist ? You're testifying that you know something you haven't even seen ?

Chris Van Hollen spouted a lot of rhetoric that had nothing to do with the PA. Blah Blah Blah.

They kept going on and on about this and that, but never sighted one provision of the PA.. which was suppposed to be the subject at hand. Huh.
Mike Pence's address was right on target.
Oh. Then there was Sheila Jackson Brown. She showed up late. She went way off the subject. Bringing slavery into this. WTF does that have to do with the PA ? Uh. Let me think... uh... NOTHING Then some how found a way to blame America for the Holocaust ! Again, WTF does that have to do with the PA ? Then this race-bater brings up the civil rights movement of the sixties. WTF does that have to do with the PA ? Uh. Let me think... uh... NOTHING Let me think here for a sec... Who has attacked us ? Racially ? ARABS. Religiously ? MUSLIMS. THESE ARE FACTS. People like her want us to ignore the FACTS and search little old ladies as much as we search Arab Muslims. Read the damned Koran. It tells them to kill us. In no uncertain terms. They started this war. We must end it. She could not even remember her own "witnesses" names.
Then she claimed that "under the PA, we have Minute Men on the border".
What a bunch of crap ! Where in the hell does the PA call for the formation of an independent organization willing to patrol out borders ? Lie lie lie. Typical Demoncrat.
