Because they had no scruples in choosing whom to embrace in their quest for power, the Republican Party is now a cesspit of wing-nuts that change the conspiracy theories they embrace more often than they change their socks.  This has led to interference in foreign policy in ways that make the world more dangerous for us all.

6UNArmsIf you want to understand why progress on gun violence or on other major issues facing the country has become pretty much impossible, one place to start is with the GOP’s opposition to the U.N. treaty on the global arms trade…

…The United States is one of the 154 members to support the treaty; it was opposed by Iran, North Korea and Syria.

Prospects for the treaty are bleak in the United States Senate, however. As Steve Benen details, this is because it is opposed by the National Rifle Association and Republican Senators (and at least [Faux Noise Delinked] one Democrat, Max Baucus), partly on the grounds that it will violate Americans’ gun rights.

Leading Tea Party Senator Ted Cruz is denouncing [propaganda delinked] the treaty as “international gun regulation.” Senator Jim Inhofe called it “another attempt by internationalists to limit and infringe upon America’s sovereignty.” Last year Rand Paul claimed the treaty would pave the way for “full-scale gun CONFISCATION.” There’s no indication he’s since changed his views, which continue to be BEST EXPRESSED IN CAPITAL LETTERS… [emphasis added]

Well, grouping the Republican Party with Iran, North Korea and Syria is certainly descriptive!

Rachel Maddow covered the InsaniTEA od paranoia in three segments. In the first, she reviewed previous instances on how it interfered with US foreign policy.

The InsaniTEA on disabilities shows that Republicans value whipping their rabid base to presenting a favorable image of America to the world.

In she second, she covers Obama’s success in locking up loose nuclear materials with Joe Cirincione.

I remember how angry I was when Republicans demanded a nuclear weapons upgrade to ratify this.

In the third, she outlines Republican InsaniTEA in opposition to a new UN treaty.

Genocide must rank high on Republican goals, as long as corporate criminals get their blood money. There can only be one explanation for the extreme f ignorance that believing all this garage requires. A picture is worth a thousand words.

  1. So glad you're back TC! I do hope you are really better now. As for the GOP – words fail me – they go from bad to worse, don't they?!

  2. Ted "Carnival" Cruz reminds me of the recent Carnival Cruise “Triumph” disaster: Cruz has no power, isn't going anywhere and reeks of shit.

    This guy is getting so annoying that he actually makes me long for the wit and wisdom of Sarah Palin.

  3. It's reallyy too bad that we can't fix stupid.

    On another note, they are almost drooling in anticipation of a fight with North Korea.

  4. Great take on everything! Thanks for a lot of Maddow – I've been missing a lot of her shows for whatever reason, but I guess I've missed some great moments and can't thank you enough for the share!

    So glad you're back!

  5. I have him in Texas,Boy look how unlucky I am.

  6. Genocide must rank high on Republican goals, as long as corporate criminals get their blood money.

    Republicans are not only dangerous as the War Party but, are bad for middle class Americans… :smile:

  7. Iran, North Korea, Syria, and The GOP – I have no trouble believing this at all.

  8. Senator Jim Inhofe called it “another attempt by internationalists to limit and infringe upon America’s sovereignty.” — And just how many times has the US infringed upon another country's sovereignty?  Iraq comes to mind with a US lead illegal invasion.

    This treaty will no more infringe upon American sovereignty than Republican/Teabaggers will raise the tax rate on the 1% and corporations to 50%!  With the US Senate likely to refuse to ratify the treaty, the US will join North Korea, Iran and Syria in turning it down — what great company.  Since the US is not likely to ratify it, and since the Rt disHonourable PM Twit Stephen Harper is such a Republican/Teabagger at heart, it would not surprise me that Canada refuses to ratify the treaty either.  Arrggghhhh!!!!!

     

  9. To the Republican posting as Mari.  Your views blaming Democrats for the effects of the Republican sequester, and even your view accusing Democrats of murdering unborn children in graphic bloody terms are welcome here, if not appreciated.  However I do check email addressed of nre commentors, in case I need to make contact to clear up a misunderstanding, something I have done well under once a year.  The email address you gave is bogus, and unless you have the integrity to post under a valid ID, your comments are not welcome.
