I can’t recall anything like this ever happening before. A United States senator is actually planning to fly to the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark to “personally lead a truth squad.”
His mission is to attempt to meet with world leaders to tell them not to believe what our government says. He wants to inform them that the United States will not pass any legislation to deal with the issue. He wants the world leaders to believe the United States is lying to them, not to be trusted, and they should not work with our government.
While it’s not uncommon for members of Congress to travel abroad meeting with world leaders on fact finding missions, this is different. This time it’s a United States senator on a mission to inform world leaders that the United States is untrustworthy, is lying to them, and urge them to not work with our elected government.
While it may not actually rise to the legal definition of treason, as a layman it appears dangerously close. It’s a despicable act, and you couldn’t possibly engage in such an activity without having a total disrespect for America. It’s an aggressive action designed to undermine our government, pure and simple. So who would actually do such a shameful thing?
It’s Sen. Jim Inhofe.
It’s astounding that we’ve sunk so low in this state that we actually keep re-electing individuals such as him. We’re on a race to the bottom … and we’re winning.
