Romney Rep. Peter King: Presidential Kill List “Totally Constitutional”

Luke Rudkowski asks NY Congressman and Romney representative, Peter King for his insight on how Mitt Romney should handle the inheritance of Obama’s kill list should he become president. Peter King touts the kill list as “totally right, totally Constitutional” as he quickly becomes angered and derogatory towards Luke.

    no one really seems ready to address this question seriously
    this dude’s politico spew was pure psychobabble
    with some better buzzwords than “takin’ the fight to Al Qaeda ”
    but still really lame
    unfortunately, that incoherent psychobabble is the stuff of the ‘Merkin Dream
    all buzzwords, no substance

    Note that King couldn’t just walk away.

    He had to get the last word.

    Also, extrajudicial murder only seems like a good idea until you realize that other people might keep lists too.

    One man’s hero is, by necessity, another man’s villain.

    Great work WAC. You expose the cowardice of not just the talking head
    “representatives” but of the lapdog media who enable them!

    Peter King says “If his kid was with him that’s the breaks”

    I was under the impression that Anwar al-Awlaki’s son was killed in a separate strike a couple of weeks after Awlaki. Seems like splitting hairs but facts matter. It’s two totally different scenarios you’re talking about if a 16 year old American was killed along with his father as some sort of collateral damage, or whether he was targeted separately. Apparently he was targeted separately.

    I’d chalk this up to Peter King trying to resolve some sort of cognitive dissonance on the fly. Adjusting the facts in order to fit some preconceived outlook on the subject. It’s almost tolerated if you accuse leadership of being incompetent but Odin forbid you accuse them of wrongdoing, as Luke did here. He’s dismissed as crazy. When in fact it’s King who is not being very rational, playing fast and loose with the facts because he just can’t deal with the reality. (Actually in some circles you’d just say King is lying through his teeth. But I’m treating his argument with the best possible case I can)

    What’s strange is that I don’t think it really matters if his son was collateral damage or not. They were both far away from any battlefield and no evidence was ever produced to show they were guilty of any crime, never mind a crime worthy of the death penalty.

    I’m not even talking about providing evidence to the public, as they’re always harping on that would endanger national security. There used to be closed judicial proceedings where this type of thing was decided. But apparently even that type of judicial oversight is no longer required. That pretty much takes us back to the darker days of civil rights before habeas corpus, long before the US Constitution even existed. That’s what, during the reign of King Edward 1st in the 1300’s? I always suspected that civil rights in the US took one step forward and two steps back, but that’s ridiculous.

      the rights we have to which I believe you are referring are organic rights not civil rights, civil rights is nothing but a buzz word concocted by communist bankers ie… the federal reserve, who funded michael (martin luther) king who was a racist ,hate crimes inciting,homosexual ,he was one of the most vile humans ever to exist in the history of this country,organic rights are the rights given to you by virtue of God creating you. Civil rights is a trojan horse to establish a black soviet state in the southeast region of this country,and those are the words of Josef Stalin at the world communist convention in moscow in 1928,not mine , Atlanta , is the capital of the black supremacist soviet nation ,and the next phase of the Stalinist plan for mass murder in this nation,is to have the blacks begin to rise up and kill whites and begin taking over their land. But never fear for all of this has been fortold in the prophecies of the Bible . The man 666 is a communist economic dictator, who will arise from this country and when the 144,000 are sealed , the remnant found faithful in these churches, that will be the end of this communist slaughter house ,for you cannot kill them and you cannot stop them ,they will be greater than Moses and stronger than Samson , and all communism and communists will be forever exterminated from the face of this planet, they control all the apostate churches ,the divine slaughter will first begin in the churches and then progress to the world and all the mass murder committed in this world from Nimrod at the tower of Babel to the UN will be avenged, and they will be rewarded in blood for they have shed horrible quantities , they are the the devotees of Lucifer and all his Angels. “Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Behold,evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind (hurricane- the figure of war) shall be raised from the coasts of the earth. And the slain of the Lord shall be at that day from one of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, nor gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground.” Jerimiah 25:32,33
