Only Two Weeks to STOP Hagel Nomination!
The Senate Armed Services Committee has just announced that Chuck Hagel, President Obama’s nominee to be the next US Secretary of Defense, will have his confirmation hearing before the committee on January 31st, just a short two weeks away.
It’s now more important than ever that you join the thousands of voices who oppose the weak and dangerous foreign policy that Hagel represents. Selecting Hagel would be the worst possible message to send the Mullahs in Tehran and our closest ally Israel. His failure to recognize the Iranian threat and his views on sequestration should disqualify him.
Sign our petition to stop the confirmation of Chuck Hagel, join with
Minority Whip John Cornyn of Texas,
Lindsey Graham of South Carolina,
James Inhofe of Oklahoma,
Ted Cruz of Texas,
Roger Wicker of Mississippi
THE PETITION TO REJECT CHUCK HAGEL’S
NOMINATION FOR SECRETARY OF DEFENSE
Your voice will be added to our petition to the members of the United States Senate who will vote on whether to confirm or reject the Hagel nomination. We must let the members of the Senate know that it is unacceptable to have a man running the Pentagon who has no concern over the looming Obama Sequestration which will devastate our military.
His anti-Semitism cannot be supported. We find his record and statement concerning Israel, our ally in the Middle East, very concerning. In 2006 he said, “the Jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here.” Also, he refused to sign policy papers by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), saying in response,“I’m a United States Senator…not an Israeli Senator.”
PLEASE: Forward this e-mail to all your friends, family, neighbors, or anyone you know who supports our troops and wants to keep America strong and secure! We need more people to sign this petition!
