Harold Koh’s Nomination Goes to the Full Senate

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee just now voted out Harold Koh’s nomination to become State Department legal adviser to the full Senate. The vote was twelve in favor and five opposed, with Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.), the ranking Republican, being the only GOPer voting for Koh.

If Koh had his “transnationalist” druthers, of course, the only vote that would matter would be a consensus from Osama bin Laden, Hugo Chavez, Jacques Chirac and Cobra Commander, according to these cynical fools. Now for the Senate GOPers to work their magic.

Could that be because Luger lives in Indiana – home of Muslim congressman & the US Muslim Brotherhood?

Our federal government already seems full of these transnationalists, including our President – the “citizen of the world,” and Ruth Bader Ginsburg – who believes foreign and international law has a place in the justices renderings (and apparently has forgotten to which document her oath of office is to, and which gives her that lofty position she holds). The transnationalists spread on both sides of the aisle, and are really “globalists” and those that hold with “free trade” agreements, and global commerce at the cost of U.S. national security.

McCain, Reid, Pelosi,Obama,Clinton to name but a few. They just haven't come out of the closet.

Yes, Dick Luger represents the part of Indiana that is in Minnesota. That must be it.

Of course, it could also have something to do with Sen. Luger not being a crazy person.
