UPDATED 09-05-13: CONGRESS GETS BOMBARDED WITH CALLS AGAINST OBAMA’S IMPENDING SYRIA WAR, AND OBAMA’S LIE IN SWEDEN ABOUT HIS INFAMOUS “RED LINE” COMMENT (VIDEO)…

In this video, Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) grills John Kerry about Benghazi, but Kerry gets defensive. Bravo, Rep. Duncan. Well said! What I find extremely troubling is that this administration is more interested in possibly assisting extremist rebels in Syria than finding the people who are responsible for the Benghazi terrorist attack. We have to hurry and help Syria, but it’s been close to a year, and we have no information about Benghazi.
Lawmakers have been speculating about the possibility that U.S. agencies operating in the Benghazi compound that was attacked on September 11, 2012 were secretly helping to transfer weapons from Libya (via Turkey) to the rebels in Syria. That’s got to be the main reason why they’re trying to sweep this scandal under the carpet, especially since the mid-term elections are next year…

Rand Paul and John Kerry butt heads during the Syria Military Action Hearing. This is how a president should speak—very honestly, and with the best interest of the American people, not himself and his ego, as Obama. I absolutely applaud Rand Paul’s heartfelt words, and I agree with everything he stated here. He pulled no punches with another self-server, John Kerry…
Here is my Original Post…
America disapproves of military action in Syria by a margin of more than 200 to 1, and members of Congress are getting inundated with calls from angry constituents who don’t want military action in Syria either. What’s Obama’s rush? Most everyone doesn’t want this war, but he does. That puts up a red flag, doesn’t it? After all, Obama does have some members of the Muslim Brotherhood working in the White House. That would give one pause as to whose side Obama is really on. Don’t listen to his words, watch his actions.
Nobody is even sure that it was Assad who used chemical weapons on the people of Syria, but Obama is trying to convince everyone that it was. My money’s on al Qaeda, and if we can prove that Obama knew this, he should be impeached ASAP. I don’t trust him as far as I can throw him, especially after Benghazi. Even our military is not behind him on this. Bill O’Reilly from the O’Reilly Factor is on Obama’s side, and as much as I respect O’Reilly, I don’t agree with him this time around.
If Obama really wants to stop Syria’s WMDs against innocent people, why didn’t he intervene two years ago? He’ll tell us that he did, but who can believe this big-time liar? I automatically believe the opposite of whatever he says. He’s doing this because he looks weak, and he will blame Congress if it doesn’t go well. That’s his MO—blame everyone else for his mistakes.
Just yesterday, Obama and Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt held a news conference in Stockholm where Obama denied saying “I didn’t set a red line; the world set a red line”, but we all knew he said it. He’s saying the world set the red line…and who might that be? Most of the world is against it! He’s distancing himself from his own words because he said something extremely stupid. It’s always everyone else’s fault, never the narcissist’s. This lying loser doesn’t take responsibility for anything he does or says, but is always front and center to take credit, whether due or not. How pathetic.
What is it going to take to convince Congress to rule against Obama? I pray to Almighty God that it won’t take the blood of our brave military soldiers. This is not our war to fight! Let al Qaeda fight their own battles, Obama. How can he expect America to believe him after what he did in the Benghazi scandal that he calls “a fake scandal”. It’s as real as his inflated ego. Al Qaeda is fighting with Syrian’s so-called “freedom fighters”, even though John Kerry says they’re not—he’s lying as well! I also wonder what the heck happened to John McCain? McCain sneakily slipped in a last-minute amendment with verbiage to oust Assad. We’re on to all of them…
We will never forget Benghazi, no matter how many diversions Obama puts in front of us (Congress story follows)…

Congress may or may not approve a military strike on Syria, but it looks like the American public overwhelmingly disapproves – by a margin of more than 200 to 1.
A national debate is raging on Twitter. Tweets and statements from members of Congress – both Democrat and Republican – show tremendously strong opposition to President Obama’s call for an air strike on Syria:
Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., tweeted, “Calls and emails from my constituents is 100 to 1 AGAINST getting involved in Syria. The American people are speaking.”
Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said 99 percent of the calls his office oppose an attack.
Rep. Andy Harris, R-Md., said, “Constituents who have contacted my office by phone or mail oppose action in Syria 523-4 so far.”
Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., tweeted, “My phones are blowing up, and an overwhelming amount of constituents oppose U.S. military intervention in Syria.”
Rep. Matt Salmon, R-Ariz., tweeted, “Syria constituent calls 489-2 against.”
Rep. Shelley Capito, R-W.V., said of “about 1,000 calls to my office, maybe 5 are for.”
Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., said calls and emails to his offices are 600 to 9 against striking Syria.
Rep. Tim Griffin, R-Ark., tweeted, “FYI: Received 75 calls/emails from constituents today so far on Syria. All 75 opposed to military action.”
Rep. Steve Chabot, R-Ohio, said he is getting swamped with phone calls and on-the-street comments from constituents telling him to oppose a strike on Syria.
Rep. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said, “I’m told the phone calls are 9 out of 10 against a strike in Syria, from my constituents in Kentucky.”
Rep. Ralph Hall, R-Texas: “I have received hundreds of calls and letters from constituents expressing strong opposition.”
Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., tweeted, “My office has been inundated with constituent phone calls and emails about Syria. Virtually unanimous opposition to military intervention.”
Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, tells WND his office is hearing the same overwhelming opposition to intervention.
Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., said, “I don’t know a member of Congress whose e-mails and phone calls are in favor of [bombing Syria.]”
Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Fla., said 96 percent of his emails and phone calls are from constituents who want to express their opposition to military action. He said, “Overwhelmingly, we are hearing pushback from our citizens against military intervention in Syria.”
Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., said he’s heard no support from his constituents for striking Syria: “I have not had a single person, not a single person, in over 92 Facebook posts just a little while ago in a question we posed, having a single constituent or a South Carolinian saying let’s go to war in Syria.”
Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., tweeted, “I’ve been hearing a lot from members of our armed forces. The message I consistently hear: Please vote no on military action against Syria.”

Meanwhile, U.S. men and women in the military are taking to social media to anonymously demand that the Obama administration refrain from sending them to fight Syria.
Uniformed military members posted photos of themselves on Facebook with paper messages covering their faces, declaring:
- “I didn’t join the Marine Corps to fight for al-Qaida in a Syrian civil war.”
- “I didn’t sign up to kill the poor for the rich. No war in Syria!”
- “Obama, I will not deploy to fight for your al-Qaida rebels in Syria. WAKE UP, PEOPLE!”
- “I didn’t join the Navy to fight for al-Qaida in a Syrian civil war.”
