My awesome Member of Congress, US Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC), is standing up to ex-President Jimmy Carter’s treasonÂ and urging the Bush Adminstration to do the same.
Rep. Sue Myrick (NC-9) called on Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to revoke former President Jimmy Carter’s passport.Â This is in response to the former President traveling to Syria to meet with Hamas, an organization officially designated by the United States as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.
â€œFormer President Carter has acted in contradiction of international agreements to isolate Hamas.Â He has acted in defiance of both United States policy and international policy.Â His actions reward terrorists, lend support, and provide legitimacy to their belief that violence will eventually get them what they want,â€ said Rep. Myrick.Â
After Hamas won the 2006 Palestinian parliamentary elections the Quartet (US, UN, EU and Russia) called on Hamas to renounce terror, recognize Israel and recognize the previous agreements between the Palestinian Authority and Israel as they seek an agreement to make peace.Â Hamas has categorically rejected these three conditions for more than two years.
Congress granted the Secretary of State the power to grant and verify passports.Â In 1981, the United States Supreme Court held in the case of Haig v. Agee that the Secretary of State has the implied power to revoke passports as well (453 U.S. 280).Â Â
Myrick will be on FOX News Channel today between 2pm and 2:30pm to discuss the Carter passport plan in further detail with E. D. Hill.
US Rep. Joe Knollenberg (R-MI) is going even further by proposing HR 5816 — the CARTER Act — which would cease all taxpayer funding of the ex-President’s “Carter Center”.Â Â Â The Carter Center already receives lots of money from sources throughout the Middle East.
In addition to my call for the US Senate to Censure Jimmy Carter, perhaps his return flight to the USA could include a military winged escort and diversion to a certain holding facility in Cuba?
GP Ed. Note:Â As of today, I’m now categorizing any posts about Jimmy Carter in the “American Terrorist” category.Â We have also added the category “American Embarrassments” so we can capture Carter-related items there too.
