FAILED: Rand Paul’s amendment to prohibit transfer of F-16s and tanks to Egyptian government; ROLL CALL VOTE

Rand Paul’s amendment “To prohibit the sale, lease, transfer, retransfer, or delivery of F-16 aircraft, M1 tanks, or certain other defense articles or services to the Government of Egypt” failed in the Senate today by a vote of 79-19.

Just to clarify, the vote was to ‘table’ the amendment which is why there are more YEAs than NAYs.

  • Scoop, here’s Rand on Fox news after the vote:

    • stage9

      In regard to AIPAC: “Well I think their leadership doesn’t represent their membership…”

      There’s a lot of that going around these days.

      • Leadership always sells out membership. The Unions have been doing it for decades!

        • aposematic

          So have the GOPe!

        • Don

          Democrats voted YEA….53-0. Republicans voted YEA….26-19.(RINOS….26….Conservatives. 19). Progress is slow, but if we can flush a few more RINOs down the toilet in 2014 we still have a chance. Slim one, but a chance.

          • Sober_Thinking

            Spot on. It’s not enough that we have to fight our enemies (the Democrats) but now we have to also fight our former friends. Shameful.

            It all hinged on 2010… and we won.

            It all hinged on 2012… and we lost.

            It all hinges on 2014 now and we HAVE to win or all is lost.

            In 2016, we’ll have the next obamanation known as Hillary (at least she will be the DNC flavor of the month). If we don’t control the House AND the Senate by then, we’re hosed. America will not likely survive…

            • You have hit the nail right on the head! We vote very carefully and work hard to get our country back on track.

          • Inhofe was one of the ones who voted in favor of tabling it. Don’t include him in your “RINO” list. Did you not know that he is the most aggressive Senator opposing any kind of carbon tax regulations? Did you not know that he was one of the 3 Senators who vote against confirming John Kerry? He’s one of the most conservative Senators.

            • Orangeone

              From TexasPGRRider’s post below: Table = stop = deny = reject…sad but true….

              So Inhofe voted YEA and should have voted NAY as did many other usually good Repubs.

              • waytngtym

                Inhofe shows on his webstie why; he wants to set conditons for Morsi, but they seem unrealistic?

                • Orangeone

                  Then why didn’t he vote to prevent the sale or transfer instead of tabling which defeated Rand Paul’s amendment? I’m going to go look at his website to review his conditions. This vote perplexes me…..I wonder how this amendment was presented because too many solid Repubs voted the opposite of what many of us expected.

            • They all deserve the Rope.

              • crosshr

                yep ! lol

              • ZeroabsolutlyNone

                Ya know…I just read “The Turner Diaries”.
                I found the chapter that is titled “The Day of The Rope” very interesting.

          • you wont be able to flush out the rinos and still take democratic seats. This was the window of opp and it closed. Rinos did what they always do, never vote with their fellow repubs. All may not be lost, but they are working on it. Thanx mccain, graham and others.

          • crosshr

            Thanks Don, thank you Scoop!

            Among the likes of Judas that willfully,and loved money more than his very best Friend, a comforter,a provider and great teacher, are these bunch of so called republicans that support the arming the enemy of the Jewish nation.Thirty Silver.

            At least we know whose in our side when we need protection, guidance.provisions but I feel we know how much we can not trust in them at all

            • RocklinConservative

              Kelly Ayotte … such a disappointment.

          • RocklinConservative

            I agree with you totally, but what I think is just as notable is that the Dems have absolutely NO representation. I cannot believe that not one single dem senator does not agree that we shouldn’t be arming Egypt. Take Schumer for instance. He is a staunch Israel supporter, but yet he votes to arm the MB against Israel????? Seriously, I wish the democrats would see this about their representatives. Why is it that they have to all walk in lock step??? Not a single one EVER votes against the dem establishment. Who is it behind that curtain that is paying their paychecks … pulling their strings that they can’t vote values.

            I love that we have people that will actually vote against the establishment and stay true to their principals. Can’t be said about democrats.

          • SaveThe Republic

            I agree. We have to make sure these Rhino’s have someone to challenge them in the primary election.

    • Sober_Thinking

      Thank you so much for this link! 🙂

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Their votes say all we need to know about them. The Democrap votes are not surprising. As things go, neither are the Republicant’s. I suppose I will have to go on beating this dead horse: they don’t care about their constituents, just themselves, their power, and their authority. He||, they don’t care about their COUNTRY!!!

  • Philo Beddoe

    Considering that the Muslim Brothahood wants to destroy Israel, It seems odd that there would be any question

    • Rand said on FOX AIPAC were in favor of the planes going to Egypt and he’s calling on pro-israel American’s to do something about it.

    • this is the U.S senate not the Israeli senate.

      • rsfan1

        Wow, you sound just like Hagel.

      • mike morrison

        Akram, may I ask, which would you rather prefer living in if you could not live in the USA: Egypt, Israel, or Iran and why?

      • You know what it’s also not? Egyptian senate.

      • And? They are THE ONLY Democratic state in the Middle East and our ONLY ALLY! So..what’s your point?

  • marketcomp

    A few you didn’t highlight:

    Alexander (R-TN),Barrasso (R-WY),Chambliss (R-GA),Corker (R-TN),Murkowski (R-AK).

    • JoJo58

      Lamar Alexander is one of the worst RINOs in office. He also voted for the UN Law of the Sea Treaty. Corker is Lamar’s lap dog. They’re both crap.

      • They are my Senators and I did not vote for Corker in Nov and will not vote for Lamar when he comes up next time!!!

    • Oops! I thought I got them all. Thanks, I fixed it now.

      • marketcomp

        It’s all good RS! We are family!

    • Don

      Alexander (R-TN) and Corker (R-TN) have repeated lied and deceived the people of Tennessee like common scum. They are an embarrassment to those who believed their swill.

      • marketcomp

        TN MUST rise-up against these RINOs. This is yet another case for term limits! Marsha Blackburn, an opportunity to become Senator!

        • piperlord

          Off topic a little – but they also need to fight the wolves in sheep clothing in TN. Have you read what is going on down there with the muslim pop and all the huge mosques being built and city mayors appeasing them all. I was looking to move down until then.

      • warpmine

        Hang’em……………………………out to dry!

      • I knew they were RINOs from the beginning. They have received money from groups including leftist groups to stay in office. Our founders NEVER intended for money to be involved in politics like this. They intended for these idiots to just be in DC for 1 or 2 terms MAX, then go home and continue their profession they had before they were elected! These are the ruling class and they are given their marching orders once in DC. Those who vote conservatively are the true heroes. How do we change this? Term limits or Revolution?

        • Revolution, then term limits with no pension and a pay cut!!!!! a really really big pay cut! they should not make 1 dime more than the average of all working americans.

    • RonaldusMagnus

      And that murkowski is a scumbag croney of the alaskan oil crooks–the ones that Sarah exposed as money demons. Still a fan of Palin, those that aren’t can kiss my a–.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Barrasso and Enzi are from my state. With other votes they have made lately, they are proving themselves to be more and more of the establishment GOP types. They do not deserve my vote and I will not vote for them. Wolves in sheep’s clothing they are indeed!

  • c4pfan

    You mean the Yeas are the idiots?

  • hramirez18

    Hatch vote againts , What levin have to said about his friend Hatch .

    • StrangernFiction

      Hatch, Beckel, etc.

      Nobody is perfect.

      • Hatch is a Toad..when running he sidled up to Tea party, and many were dumb enough to fall for it. After Election went right back to his Go Along TO Get Along..Just a Business..No Patriotism left in Most of Senate. Only Patriots are the Newer Senators..However Sessions is always Great

  • Scoop, just to clarify the vote was to block the amendment hence voting yea is to block it

    • TexasPGRRider

      Table = stop = deny = reject…sad but true….

      • mike morrison

        It’s even worse than that…to table it means that they don’t even have to go on the record with a vote. It’s like it’s put in big pile of other stuff they don’t want to go on the record with or act on right now…and no one can stop it being buried or bring it back up for another vote for the most part.

        • Funny thing is we have a record with a vote in this post. Another funny thing is this post is extremely popular today. Almost viral.

    • Yeah that’s what ‘tabling’ is.

    • jlbs

      I just called Harkin’s office and told the gal I hope Morsi gets Harkin before he gets me. I’m so damned mad I could just spit in his face! I swear NONE of them pay any attention to what is going on in the world…….must rely on State Media and hussein for all their news.

    • Orangeone

      You posted the You Tube link, you might want to listen to Rand Paul discuss.

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Tabling a vote means the same thing as shelving a vote. It means to kill a motion without debate or a vote on the substance of a resolution.

  • @rooskies1 > What in the wide world of sports is wrong with these idiots? This is the best example to show how effed we are.

    • Were only effed if you refuse to fight,i wont

      • Friend, I wouldn’t be on THERIGHTSCOOP everyday if I was refusing to fight. The point I’m making is how much they are stacking the deck against us. This is a fight we are way behind on. They have been working in the shadows, nibbling away at our cultural center so they could take leaps they are now. The only way to win this fight at this point is to come together. Our side believes in ‘real’ freedom and unfortunately that makes us more independent from those we have more in common than not. Bottom line is that #BARRYO has done everything to divide all of us into sub groups that now they have more on their side than we do ours. In addition, they have the press and cultural voices. We need to find common ground and begin the discussions there so we can bring all of these subsets back into the fold. That is the only way we can win…with the truth.

      • StrangernFiction

        We are pretty effed. Admitting that doesn’t equal a refusal to fight. It just shows you aren’t delusional.

  • LadyMacKeltar

    I have the honor of having both of my Senators (Burr and Hagan) vote YEA for the amendment. Is it 2014, yet??

    • Indiana

      Only Hagan is up in 2014. Burr is up in 2016.

      • LadyMacKeltar

        Thanks for reminding me. I’m so fed up with him, I forgot he got re-elected in 2010.

        • Indiana

          I just found out that a TEA Party leader named Dr. Greg Brannon, OB/GYN will be challenging Kay Hagan. I hope all works out well for you all in North Carolina, unfortunately here in Indiana we elected Joe Donnelly in 2012. He will be unseated in 2018.

          • I agree it’s a disgrace that this donnelly (idiot) got elected and I certainly hope you are right in ousting him in 2018!

            • Indiana

              People chose not to vote for Richard Mourdock after his comments. If it weren’t for those comments than he would have sailed through because the man didn’t run on any social issues in the 2 years of his campaign. I say Donnelly will be unseat because he is NO Evan Bayh. Not not mention Bayh was a popular Governor while Donnelly nearly lost his House seat in 2010. Not to mention I would believe after what the Daniels Administration did for this state that my fellow Hoosiers will realize Donnelly is a big government nut and vote him out.

          • LadyMacKeltar

            Thank you! This is good to know. Dr. Brannon is actually in my area and has been on our local TV news many times. Just signed up on his mailing list.

            We must keep the faith. God willing, this nightmare will be over someday for all of us.

    • Orangeone

      They voted Yea to table the amendment and not let it be heard or attached. YEA is bad.

    • I will not vote for Hagan again . And I will be out to let everyone know how she voted on this and everything else she votes on. She does not listen to the people anymore!!!I will work to try and make sure she does not get reelected in 2014 and That also goes for Mr. Burr!!!in 2016

      • puma_for_life

        She never listened to the people. She is like Elizabeth Dole, her predecessor: to hell with the constituents…who cares what they think. At least Burr responds to calls and letters. NC is not known to elect stellar representatives for some reason.

  • Indiana

    Coburn (R-OK)
    Flake (R-AZ)
    Hatch (R-UT)
    Johnson (R-WI)

    • Very SATISFIED! Cornyn and Cruz vote YEA. Exactly why they got my vote!!! They also were two of the three that voted AGAINST Kerry’s nomination. Batting 1.000 so far!

      • jlbs

        They voted NAY………I had to go back and check as I didn’t think Cruz would vote to table the amendment.

      • Orangeone

        They voted NAY which in this case is good because they voted NOT to table

  • Bummer

  • tortoise1689

    What is wrong with you people? You work for us, at least I thought you did! Why are you giving our technology to these Muslims? Do you really think they will be used for Peace? I have a bridge in Brooklyn I’d like to sell you all!!! lol

  • Rocco11

    I see McCain and Grahamnesty have reverted back to form…

  • Rob_Bryant

    I’m having trouble figuring out both Johnson and Toomey.

    • they got paid,not much figuring out

  • 34543353454

    Thanks for this list. Watch our guys and gals, we’re all taking notes. You might want to get your resume’s updated cause you’re gonna be jobless come next voting period. We’re DONE with you

    • Yea since our votes count so much…why do you think all wetbacks are gonna be welcome with open arms

  • Is it a stupid quistion to ask why we are giving them the money we borrow from China? Why don’t they borrow money from China, themselves? They can use our money to buy weapons, even if we don’t send any.

    • Franktruth

      Donna, you hit the nail on the head. Solomon told us the borrower is servant to the lender, so our foreign aid is ultimately determined by the Communist Chinese.

  • Damn disappointed that Portman (R-OH) was on the wrong side of this one. He also voted the other night to confirm that traitor Kerry as Sec. of State.

    He is going to get a rather nasty email from me this weekend and a followup phone call on Monday.

    • M_J_S

      I’m sure he and other RINOs can care less.

      • LadyMacKeltar

        Pretty much the response I got from my two senators in response to the letter I sent them in support of gun rights and the 2nd amendment.

    • Only letters from normal americans matter. He can care less what a right wing kook thinks.

      • Why is it that liberals always resort to name calling?

      • Take it somewhere else Akram…your lefty Bullshit labels won’t work here….try MSNBC!

  • Well maybe we should enlist these Republicans when the proverbial poop hits the fan and this plan backfires of America!!!

  • Sober_Thinking


    I’m going to have a talk with my senator… he’s blown it again. And Jeff flake and a few others…

    Scott Brown syndrome – run as a Tea Party favorite, take off the mask after being elected. Aholes.

    • Flake is always weird with his voting. He is usually good *shrug*

  • DarthDiggler

    You forgot to bold Chambliss.

    • Also Corker and Murkowski,

    • aposematic

      and Murkowski (AK)

  • Orangeone

    Al Franken’s office just said that he voted to table the amendment which prevented the F-16s from going to Egypt. That’s the Dem spin of the day. BTW, Franken claims to be Jewish!

    • He voted to block the amendment, that’s what he did! WELL DONE AL! When Egypt uses those planes against Israel, we will know who to blame.

      • Orangeone

        Are you an anti-Semite John?

        • KenInMontana

          Apparently you missed his sarcasm.

          • Orangeone

            If you look at his comment below he takes a different position.

            • KenInMontana

              I did read his comments.

              Addendum: Being supportive of Israel is hardly a position an Anti Semite would take.

              • Orangeone

                It is a reasonable question to John.  There is no /sarc tag and he is using capital letters celebrating F-16s to Egypt to a man that denies the Holocaust and calls Jews pigs. And he is responding to my post that Sen Franken’s office is already spinning his vote.

                • KenInMontana

                  Apparently you missed this as well, “When Egypt uses those planes against Israel, we will know who to blame.”

                • Orangeone

                  I didn’t miss it at all.

                • KenInMontana

                  I would also suggest you click on his profile and read through his comments.

                • Orangeone

                  I would also suggest that he use a /sarc when he is joking about a country’s leader denying the Holocaust where millions of innocent LEGAL CITIZENS of their country were slaughtered for being Jewish

                • KenInMontana

                  Perhaps you should considered thinking a bit more, as he said nothing about Morsi or Imadinnerjacket.

  • FreeTexanDude

    Both are nays. Awesome!

    Cornyn (R-TX)
    Cruz (R-TX)

    • CORNYN-CRUZ 2016!!!!!

      • marketcomp

        Possible! I think Cornyn has found his way.

      • Orangeone

        Do you have any great info on Cornyn “in your binder” (sorry trying to be funny) to share with us to save some research time?

    • As are my Senators from Alabama…yea us!!

  • Alexander and Corker.. I will do all in my power to see either one of you serve another term in office..You both are gutless,spinless worms..I sadly say i voted for you but you definately dont support my views..good riddence..

  • We have a bunch of Demicans and Republicrats. This is why I did not and would not support RINO’s like Romney and the Republicrat party. Ron Paul was the only chance this country had and we blew it.

    • Gtrjag


  • dlmurray

    McCain reaching across the aisle. Again.

    • M_J_S

      More like reaching under the desk across the aisle…AGAIN

  • Corker and Alexander…you do not represent the voters in Tenn. You will not get another term in office..your are lower than whale guts..just obummers puppets..stand against this traitor or you

    I can’t believe this….why are they even Republican’s????

      To make Democrats look better, frankly.

        Whether or not that is their intent, that is the result.

    U.S. giving, yes not even selling but giving for free, lethal military weapons to our’s and Israel’s enemy(ies) and 79 Senators don’t give a Damn… Stick a fork in U.S. were done…

    • waytngtym

      Rand explained it yesterday that when we gave billions in aid to the Egyptians, it was based upon their agreeing in advance to buy these things from us. So that’s one of the things that they are choking on…
      But it is (more) obvious today the country is in shambles and not in need of these things, even if it supposedly is going to the opposition to Morsi.
      We don’t need these things to be within 1000 miles of Egypt, unless we want “jobs” more than the security of Israel and the US, as if that isn’t obvious.
      Why do we think we can control these things with weapons shipments in the first place?
      Think Rand is right for every reason he mentioned today. Hope we can help.

    • StrangernFiction

      Hard to argue with that. The States will stand up or we will soon be serfs.

  • I guess Obamas dick was on the other side of the “aisle”

  • I had to look up what ‘Table’ means,

    –table, motion to – A senator may move to table any pending question. The motion is not debatable, and agreement to the motion is equivalent to defeating the question tabled. The motion is used to dispose quickly of questions the Senate does not wish to consider further. —

    Can someone tell why it’s a good idea to supply Egypt with F-16s, M-1 Tanks? But these a-holes think law abiding American citizens can’t own so-called scary looking assault rifles!

  • waytngtym

    Use the Conservative Caucus site for FAX numbers for all Senators, eh? to let them know what is thought about this, tonight?

    And check out their article :”You ain’t seen nothing yet!”

    Maybe each who can FAXes as many Senators as possible.

  • Before jumping on the “tar and feather the senator” bandwagon I would like to understand why so many prominent Republicans voted to table the amendment. Was there a poison pill in the document? Is there a better proposal in the works?

  • sjmom

    Thanks Scoop.

    If Egypt uses the planes and tanks against Israel or their own people the blood will be on the hands of every yes vote and the Muslim in Chief. So, there are only 19 pro America, pro Israel votes in the Senate?

    • 1217Chic

      Why are they grilling Hagel if they’re voting for the attempted destruction of Israel??????

      • sjmom

        Because they’re “confused”. Its what known as the been there way too long syndrome. We have to help them take that long well deserved retirement.

      • Constance

        I believe they are grilling Hagel to throw a few bones to the conservatives. In the end, Hagel will be confirmed. Watch and see.

      • StrangernFiction

        For show.

      • Franktruth

        The grilling of Hagel is likely Kabuki theater. Opposition to Hagel is posturing. After some token “tough grilling” the most outed neo-cons and/or progressives will vote to affirm, because they have nothing to lose anyway – Murkowski, McCain, Graham, Hatch, Alexander, Collins – it only takes a few.

        teams of Muslim Brotherhood loyalists will dis-assemble the F16 and Abrams tank for vulnerability and disseminate their findings to ALL likely future foes of the United States: namely People’s Republic of China (many of the components are likely already made there), Cuba, North Korea, Iran, Myanmar/Burma, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Russia, Venezuela, Brazil – eventually all the third world banana republics. Obama plans to make the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrated nations alliance a major military and economic power player within the decade.

        I suspect the “Yea” votes (in both parties) were capitulations to pressure from the People’s Republic of China and the Federal Reserve.

  • I have to wonder about the mindset of my representatives. It seems that they are only interested in whatever “contributions” the monied interests can make to their coffers. I see too many who consider themselves our rulers instead of our servants. That must change. It will take a revolution to accomplish. Whether that comes at the ballot box or in the streets remains to be seen.

  • Maureen Prieto

    As a Pennsylvanian I am not surprised by Bob Casey’s vote. However, I am so angered by Pat Toomey’s vote that I will be returning his Christmas card!

    • sjmom

      I’m from NJ and surprised at Toomey myself but he did something else goofy if I remember. Can’t trust northeast Republicans cause they’ll stick it to you every time.

    • dabbobean

      Just sent Toomey an email……what a disappointment.

  • Joe W.

    Once again, I’m PROUD of my 2 Texas Senators………

    • sjmom

      So am I.

    • Orangeone

      Once again I am jealous 🙁 Shameful for a MN Jewish Senator to vote to arm Israel’s enemy

  • Pyrran

    There’s good old McCain, Graham, and Hatch, voting with the D’s.
    Why am I not surprised?

  • TexasPGRRider

    Re submit this not as an amendment to another bill, but as a bill itself with NO amendments…Then we`ll see some TRUE COLORS !!!!

    • Orangeone

      That’s a great idea, call Rand Paul’s office!

    • Reid won’t let him submit this as a bill, what’s the point? getting an amendment is good enough , that’s it now… Rand Paul knew it would fail but he wants to shame the senator’s and get them on record.

      • TexasPGRRider

        Coulda been wishful thinkin` there John…Maybe we could try some of the rookies in the House, this issue is Most Relevant and needs to be addressed !!!!

      • Orangeone

        And use it in the 2016 campaigning

  • It’s hard to understand why we would supply any country with weapons that could be and possibly would be used against our allies. I think that this is a slap in the face of our closest friends in the middle east. I feel sad for our country. It’s like our government has been taken over by communists that have no reguard for what “We The People” feel.

    • sjmom

      Its not just our allies, its us also. Just because we give them doesn’t mean they won’t use them against us.

      • Orangeone

        Exactly! What do you think would happen if one of those F-16s was used to shoot a politician’s plane out of the air?

  • Egad — going to be calling my Senators. Unacceptable.

    • waytngtym

      as below, FAX or email all 50 Senators tonight. Must try to do something…

  • Conniption Fitz

    It would be stupid to arm an unstable country. Period.

    • sjmom

      You said it; STUPID!!!!!!!!!

  • SourPea

    I’m thinking that “semantics” got in the way of “reality”. Maybe there needs to be clarification…something like: Yea means that we need to wait on this vote. Nay means: “Let’s roll!”

    • Orangeone

      This is normal in Congress to post amendments to bills. Believe me, the Senators knew exactly what the vote was.

  • Remember these things when it is time to vote. Do not vote alone take a like minded individual with you to vote as well.

  • jleinf

    So who votes to arm the middle east when the middle east is in terrorist turmoil because of obama? Answer: American politicians looking for votes, the msm looking for money and the voters looking for handouts how SUCKY and unAmerican.

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    I am proud of My Congressmen they voted No.

  • This should make the 2014 elections a bit easier to decide 😉

  • Isabella1709

    Everyone of those Republican Nay’s is going to have to answer for it.

    • Orangeone

      The Republican NAY is good, the YEA is bad

      • poljunkie

        Maybe they were confused by the question.


        • Orangeone

          Al Franken’s staff is spinning it incorrectly to confuse the citizens. Wouldn’t surprise me if they all do 🙂

  • semihardrock

    You have to realize that Egypt is creating its “own” Homeland Security……JUST LIKE WE HAVE HERE!

    Because Government know best and ALL the rest are mere peasants…..

    • Orangeone

      And re-wrote their Constitution just like Barky Boy and his merry band of moooslime-loving followers here wants.

  • Both my state’s boys voted against.

  • waytngtym

    I honestly think those who have FAX machines should batch FAX letters to all 50 Senators tonight.. Rand might resubmit something tomorrow, and he needs our help. There is not much time left on this. I posted the link below to Conservative Caucus’ complete list of FAX numbers for Congressmen. They even have a code for faxing them all at once for urgent request. This is urgent, no?

    Here it is again (which I got from ABC on RS before):

    • it wont come up again my friend… that’s it. The planes and tanks will be delivered this year, the senate had their chance.

      • waytngtym

        Then what on earth was Rand saying when he asked for Pro-Israel supporters to “do something about this” ? That is us, my friend, and do not think for a minute the Senate can’t do something, and that enough voices wouldn’t be heard on this if they were raised. RAND is correct when he said 80% of Americans do not want ths sale to go through, that is if they if they are aware of it! It is absurd to sit here and understand the catastrophic nature of this and do nothing. Sen. Rand, a US Senator and possible future presidential contender says we can do something. That is good enough.

        • He wants supporters of Israel and Jews to shame AIPAC who are not always working for Israel’s interests.

  • melissatx

    At least the Texan duo has the spine to say no. We understand that when you ride the fence, RINOS, all you get is a red ass. Suck it up buttercups and ask your women for your balls back and just say no.

    • Alborn

      The AL duo as well. They were both a disgraceful vote of yeah on Kerry for SOS though.

      • sjmom

        Alabama did the right thing to vote NO. It was the YES vote which was wrong.

    • TexasPGRRider

      Melissa, if I may, the vote was to table (deny) the amendment. A “Yes” vote denied the acceptance of the amendment to the bill in question. A “No” vote would allow the amendment to become part of the bill. Peace be with you….

    • sjmom

      Texas voted correctly; it was the others who voted the wrong way. Confusing but we wanted a “no” vote. Yes meant it was DOA 🙂

  • Eagle_Eyed

    Glad to see my two Kansas Senators voted nay.

  • rsfan1

    As a Jewish American, I want to publicly thank Rand Paul for being more supportive of Israel than 70% of my fellow Jews.

    While I’m skeptical of his overall feelings towards the U.S./Israel relationship, and his views on amnesty/securing the border, he’s doing some good things in the Senate. I just wish his Libertarian fans weren’t such Jew-haters.

    • He said on FOX that AIPAC were lobbying for the planes to Egypt and is calling on pro-Israel Americans to do something about it

      • rsfan1

        John, AIPAC is a liberal front group. In a way, the same as Media Matters. The Liberal Jews that run/support AIPAC are gone. What I mean is, there’s nothing we conservative Jews can do about it. We’re simply outnumbered.

        • It must be frustrating to see liberal Jews continually undermine the sovereign state of Israel but what can you do? They seem to have a “we know best” mentality and they simply won’t listen.

    • waytngtym

      What matters is today, and he is fervently trying to stop the greatest single mistake the US could make, today. I just wrote my letter to FAX to 50 senators as soon as I can get to a FAX tonight imploring them stop this sale. I urge everyone to do so as well, and write to Rand and tell him what we have done, hoping he can resubmit in some way asap. He is not shrinking from this, nor should we.

    • sjmom

      I didn’t realize Libertarians were?????? Though as a conservative I don’t know all there is to know about them. Me; I’m a huge Israel supporter.

      • Libertarians are not anti-Jewish in any way, they just do not like foreign aid to Israel (and everyone else). This is my experience, it’s not based on race I assure you.

      • rsfan1

        Take a look around the Libertarian forums. I guess to be fair, I should have said many are, not all.

    • Orangeone

      There are many Christians that stand with you and proud to do so!

  • Ray

    NOW, DO YOU SEE WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT? The Republican party are NOT our friends. They are sending military equipment to our enemies.

    • StrangernFiction

      Right there with you. You have to be delusional at this point not to see this.

      • Ray

        I think Rush Limbaugh is leaning towards the get off the Republican Party train, at least he sounded like it yesterday.

  • poljunkie



    Not up to scratch





    But unfortunately, not shocking!

    JOHN MC CAIN, my Senator: RETIRE YOU DITHERING OLD “animal resembling horse with long ears.”


    • i was shocked your new senator Flake voted against it too but I still have hope for him.

      • poljunkie

        Yeah, I think Kyl would have been a more reliable vote…but you never know.

      • Constance

        So far, Flake is not impressing me much.

        • StrangernFiction

          For arming the enemy.
          For amnesty.
          For women in combat.

          VERY unimpressive.

    • Constance

      He’s my senator too. An embarrassment to Arizona – well, Arizonans who vote for him are an embarrassment to Arizona. He should have lost to J.D. Hayworth last time. I can’t stand that old SOB.

      • poljunkie

        Bleech. JD was no peach either.

        I know he has had some good positions on things but he comes across as a loose canon, and that is not helpful, especially in today’s climate.

        I thought John Shadegg would be a good choice to run for our Senator. AND too bad Kyl retired.

    • Unfortunately McCain has been a Rino since before his Presidential run. I feel your pain..I have Hatch who is also Rino…. Fortunatly I also have Sen.Lee. absolute Constitutional Conservative. I Believe RandPaul will be a major Leader for us Now & in the future..really admire his spunk.

  • 12grace

    obama is guilty of treason for doing this…

    • Orangeone

      And he has lots of company!

    • StrangernFiction

      With Senate GOP support.

  • MadAsHellJack

    Just peachy! 79% of the US Senate thinks it is a good idea to arm our most MORTAL ENEMY WITH MODERN WEAPONS. Unbelievable. I am happy to see both of my Kansas Senators were in the Nay column.

    If the democRats were in a burning building with Obama, and Obama told them to pour gas on the fire they’d happily do it for him. Their actions border on TREASON.

  • Flo

    TY Cornyn and Cruz.
    It is time to secede!

    • StrangernFiction

      It is WAY past time for states to stand up. WAY past time.

  • wjgreen

    Interesting all the nays were Republican. Do Democrats just hate this country or what?

    • c4pfan


    • Baaaah Baaaaah Sheep!!

  • All 19 who voted against tabling it were Republicans.

    • Orangeone

      The vote was to table Rand Paul’s amendment to prohibit the sale or transfer so the NAY vote is the right vote!

  • As Zur said in the movie “Last Starfighter”, “You will pay for this with your lives.” Maybe they won’t, maybe, but a lot of very good men will. Meanwhile, the rest of us keep grim count and pray for some tiny flake of morality and common sense.

  • I want to thank Sessions, Shelby, and the rest of the Republicans that voted “no”. You honored yourselves today. There is no way that we should be sending weapons to countries like Egypt where there is civil unrest and where terrorist groups are in charge. The United States of America should not be arming anyone who vows to harm or obliterate Israel. That is EXACTLY what the democrats have done with the assistance of Alexander (R-TN), Ayotte (R-NH), Barrasso (R-WY), Blunt (R-MO), Burr (R-NC), Chambliss (R-GA), Coburn (R-OK), Cochran (R-MS), Collins (R-ME), Corker (R-TN), Enzi (R-WY), Flake (R-AZ), Graham (R-SC), Hatch (R-UT), Hoeven (R-ND), Inhofe (R-OK), Isakson (R-GA), Johanns (R-NE), Johnson (R-WI), King (I-ME), Kirk (R-IL), McCain (R-AZ), McConnell (R-KY), Murkowski (R-AK), Portman (R-OH), Sanders (I-VT), Toomey (R-PA), Wicker (R-MS). I am ashamed of all of you. The ‘Independent’ folks really are a let down as well. Of all the folks that should have been against this, it is you Independents that should really have said no. What were you promised? What did you give up besides your honor?
    As for McCain, this is the type of behavior that cost you the election 4 years ago. Utter confusion and for lack of a better term, stupidity. So much for conservatism Mr. McCain.

  • snowshooze

    This just shows how many idiots we have working for us.

  • I’m proud of my Alabama senators; Jeff Sessions, and Richard Shelby for voting “no”. The rest of you need to take notice of what your so called conservative, fiscally responsible representatives are doing. If they don’t measure up; vote them out!!!

    • dabbobean

      I have the utmost respect for Sen. Sessions I would be proud to have him as a senator as well.

  • NanNJ

    Same left loon republicans voting against the conservative view. Keep plugging Rand. It’s all you can do right now.

  • wjgreen

    Billions for tribute, much less for defense.

  • sue-marie

    I am surprised that Toomey, Ayotte, Portman and Johnson were part of this group. Hatch, McConnel, McCain, Graham and Murkowski have always been part of the establishment crowds. You would think these politicians watching their old buddies lose to a Tea party candidate would keep them on their toes. They do not think they are vulnerable…it’s time they go back to school.

    • Orangeone

      I’m surprised at Grahamnesty after his “attack” on Hagel over anti-Semite comments

  • Dick Tracy

    We got a muz in the wh giving weapons to another group of muz. What could possibly go wrong?

  • deerlakegal

    First of all…. This OVOMIT.. Hate’s Isreal.. and is pushing for a two state resolution. Which Won’t work.! This is God Teritory and we have no right to mess with God’s Choosen People or land. WE divide Isreal…. WE get Divided. OH Dare him Give our Plane’s and Tank’s to a Fierce Muslim Brotherhood Dictator.. OutRage !! Bunch of Fool’s running our Country.. This Country has Desingrated….. Since this President has been in office… When are we going to wake up.. He’s a sick … Narrisstic… Socialistic… President… Who is bringing. JUDGEMENT on our country..

  • FreeManWalking

    Senator Paul’s next legislation is the Right to Life.

    You can say what you want about him but you can’t rightfully accuse him of not having a Backbone.

    • c4pfan

      It’s pretty obvious he’s running and it’s not even been a 6 months after dealing with the longest election ever.

  • waytngtym

    The same letter should be written to the House as well as Senate to stop this because if they don’t, there might not be a 2014 or 2016, which may concern them the most?

    The link to FAX all Senate and Congressmen at once on The Conservative Caucus has an “Oops! This link appears to be broken.” error box.

    Who broke it?

    serious q.

  • chrisfrommactown

    Vladimir Ilich Lenin said it best when he said that “the West would sell them the rope they would use to hang us with”. These Senators know selling those advanced weapons to the Muslim Brotherhood is wrong, wrong, wrong. Still. General Dynamics and all the other big defense contractors want to make money selling their wares regardless of who the customer is and they fund these Senators campaigns. For shame, for shame, for shame.

  • Haywoodjbl

    What don’t we get? WTF? send them f 16’s and Tanks? VOTE THEM OUT

  • Haywoodjbl

    So was it stopped or not SCOOP? Please clarify

    • Orangeone

      From TexasPGRRider’s post: Table = stop = deny = reject…sad but true…. (It was defeated)

      • waytngtym

        deer orangeone:
        Wondering if the House is going to have a chance to stop this? Can a bill be submitted in the Senate again? (I’m thinking of course, why not?) Inhofe submitted a bill, but on his website says he wants just to delay the sale until we get promises from Morsi ..
        What?? He at the same time says Morsi needs to be out. How can this make sense to him? What else can be done? March on DC a someone here suggests? Don’t we have to, really? Can anyone start a website about this–I am in central NYS and I would come and help…

        • Orangeone

          I’ve seen something on Twitter about a march on DC on July 4th so will watch for that info. I’m really not sure if the House could do anything. Although this current House of Reps is fairly useless. Inhofe’s position sounds confusing at best.

          I recommended you visit this site frequently. Her current post is on illegal alien immigration discussions. You can see if there is a prior post on Morsi and the F-16 & tanks. I follow the author on Twitter, she is brilliant!

          • waytngtym

            Lisa A. Yes, really good logic in her articles–ironies upon ironies. Wonder who she is–no disclosure. Would like to hear her on televsion, FOX.

            Thing is, still would like to do something. A march on July 4th, for which I wonder, for anything would be good. The Catholic Diocese did a great job of hiring buses, some company in the midwest, to take people from here (CNY) to DC for $25 rt w/box lunch. There were people on the other end arranging for each group arriving to get in the queue. If I knew of a group up here to join, I would. Conservative Caucus or something to plan events and activites. Would be glad just to meet with folks and stuff envelopes instead of going to work everyday and acting like nothing is happening. I know you all feel the same. Well, don’t know what to do but I have to do something.

            Thanks for listening Orangeone.

            Hope we all have a blessed Sunday, and we hear what He wants to hear.

            Oh, and w/o our help, he did someting at Iran’s nuclear facility, didn’t he??? amazing..

            • Orangeone

              I’ll keep watching on Twitter for something. Have you checked with your local tea party?

              • waytngtym

                No, actually. I like what they think, but I am thinking more about issues than party, when it comes to demonstrations that is. I think if anyone would march it would have to be on one single issue at a time, otherwise it does no good. But worth a phone call to them. I feel silly saying all this. Like I’m the only one, but am not, for sure. I will find something.

                • Orangeone

                  The Tea Party organizes events too. Are you looking at the Freedom Works website?

    • Biggbear52

      It was stopped. Meaning that the commies that be can sell, trade, gift or whatever they want to those terrorists that would see the destruction of Israel!

  • dabbobean

    I expected some of these republican hacks to vote for this but Toomey?…-.johnson?…. Flake? Wow!….how disappointing.

    I guess campaign contributions are thicker than integrity.
    What else could explain a vote that defies common sense.

    • KarenYMe

      Common sense has left the building folks…heck, its left the country. I had this horrible feeling the night of Nov. 6, 2012 as I watched the election results come in that we had lost the country. I was so upset I went to bed at 8pm. Unfortunately, nothing has happened to change my mind. Everything is turned upside down now…what used to be good is bad and what used to be considered bad is now good. I don’t know if we can get this country back without war in the streets. I wish someone could reassure me but that hasn’t happened either. And yes, we are doomed by what we are allowing to happen to Israel. Total insanity and we can’t seem to get the fools out of congress because they keep getting re-elected.

  • As you can see from table “A,” we have comprised a list of Senators that receive kick-backs from defense contractors.

  • Wow I do not believe this how can they keep doing this shit First off we need to take care of our own military then we can deal with others after we get a whole new congress and white house

  • repubboy

    These republicrats must be dealt with in the next cycle. Every one of them need to be challenged.
    These people are traitors and two faced back stabbers.. They all need to be fired.

  • Seems it’s time to reign in our Alaskan senators. Maybe it’s time to teach them who we respect and side with in this world. It is not a terrorist organization masquerading as a legitimate government.

  • These politicians no longer care. They feel protected as senators. You ever watch those movies where an asteroid is gonna hit the US, and they secure and take congress to safety so that a govment can survive the impending doom and emerge some time later to lead the survivors? They know that they are safe and protected and wont have to take up arms in defense.

  • theresasmithnms

    I will be expressing my dissatisfaction with Mr. Wicker (R-MS).

  • carolisme

    I don’t get it…whose side are the “yea” Republicans on? Those weapons will be used against Isreal, they will be used to further the power of the brotherhood, and that all being true, they will be used against the interests of America.

  • GOP does not give a crap about us. They know you will vote for them no matter what since the Dems are outright marxist.

  • JpRAustin

  • Sad to see Portman and Johnson on that list. I sent Kirk (my senator) a letter showing my disappointment in his vote on this. I wouldn’t waste my time sending anything to Durbin.

  • wallwatchman

    These repubs are taking advantage of us! Just like we scream bloody murder to the black population, trying to show them that the dem party isn’t helping them, but hurting them, yet they keep voting for them, it’s being done to conservatives as well.

    I agree with another comment I saw here. The GOP don’t feel threatened by losing our votes. We’re petrified of having dems run everything, so the GOP think they can have votes all over the spectrum and well still keep them. I don’t want Marxists as my leaders, but I’m tired of not being able to count on repubs for even the most simple votes, like duh, not arming our enemies! I will be voting my folks out next time! We the people need to be respected again!

    • Kordane

      The ‘black population’ are just voting for the most consistent of the two statist parties. One party (Democrat) openly wants big government, and the other party (Republican) covertly wants big government. If you’re going to go with a party that basically want the same thing, then you’re going to go with the one that really believes that their policies are morally right, rather than the alternative which wants it, but feels guilty and hypocritical about it.

      There is no real “opposition” in America, unless you count the Libertarian party. It’s pretty much all going the same way: Faster under Democrat rule, but slower under Republican rule. Overtly under Democrat rule, but covertly under Republican rule.

  • Kordane

    Even after the way this voting went, you’ll still all be voting Republican, and you’ll keep voting Republican again and again. You’re gluttons for punishment.

    I just wonder what it will take until you stop being sentimental over the corpse of this long dead defender of liberty, and instead go third party.

  • tinlizzieowner

    “Just to clarify, the vote was to ‘table’ the amendment which is why there are more YEAs than NAYs.”

    And just what does ‘table’ the Amendment mean, if it doesn’t mean vote against it? You notice there isn’t ONE Democratic vote ‘for’ the amendment and if we had Republicans with any guts, there would have been 45 ‘NAY’s’. 98 votes and 45 ‘NAY’s means it would have passed by only 3 votes. If nothing else, that would have sent a message to Morsi that maybe the (Muslim Brotherhood) ‘gravy train’ is running thin. ;-(

    • Kordane

      The only message that should be sent to the Muslim brotherhood is a dozen or so nuclear bombs targeted at Egyptian military facilities and population centers.

      Sure, you might stop a “gravy train” and hence stop Egypt from increasing its strength as quickly, but you’ll still have an Islamic state that is at war with Western civilization (and especially Israel).

      • tinlizzieowner

        Won’t argue with that.

    • waytngtym

  • TellUsAboutIt

    Interesting. I called the offices of both Senators from OK before the vote and was told they were firmly against the sale — the opposite of how they voted according to this list

  • There were 19 suicide bombers on 9/11 and today 19 good men voted for their country to stop sending weapons to the people who sent the suicide bombers. There were 79 others who blindly voted to be with obama or either are just plain communists themselves. I am from Mississippi and both my U S Senators voted to send F 16s and tanks to the muslim brother hood . What good reason can they have for this. There is none. They got paid in the backroom somewhere to propagate this agenda. But their money will do them no good when these Islamist take over America. And the Islamist will show them no mercy either.

  • Living in Minnesota, the republicans don’t get any representation from our senators. And the state offices are controlled by the Dems also. Minnesotians are geting a raw deal all around.

    • Work with you Tea Party, volunteer,,get some good people in there,,you can do it
      and for those in office, write letters…no emails its worth the cost of a stamp and encourage everyone to do it…I am just about ready to march on DC..I hear this from so many states!!

  • Thanks Rand Paul you are a true patriot against the odds you still vote for the nation and the people. These spineless people who are out to destroy America will stop at nothing to get a few dollars and what good will it do them when the very country the dollar stands on falls. The very idea of sending these planes and tanks when this nations defense is in question due to the high debt. We should cancel this sale on that ground alone and keep the weapons for our own military. But even if we didnt need them, we don’t need our enemies to possess them. Thanks again Mr. Paul. Patrick Henry and Paul Revere are single names in a crowd but they stand out as patriots. Benedict Arnold stands out also as the 79 who voted to give our enemies these weapons stand out. This vote shows where the allegiance of the U S senate is and it is not in America’s favor. Wake up people.

    79 Senators that need to be voted out of office….

    • Kordane

      Yeah, and 79 people who are exactly the same (as bad) will replace them.

      America doesn’t have enough time to salvage the Republican party, and that’s even if it’s possible, which I doubt, given how embedded the establishment is and how little will there is in voters to do anything substantive about it.

  • With regard to Sen. Inhofe’s vote, I was initially aghast, however when I went to his FB page I see he has also introduced legislation to indefinitely suspend sales to Egypt of this equipment.

    • waytngtym

      He wants to still sell them with conditions on Morsi, which seem unrealistic. He is still saying to send these planes/tanks into the volatile situation that existed before and since Morsi, and accelerating an arms race between Israel and Egypt. What reason does Egypt need these other than to fight Israel and the US? The last conflict we would want to inflame?

      What do you think about Rand’s position compared to Inhofe’s? Inhofe’s position is also on his website posted last week.

  • these men and women are traitors not only to our Country but also to our allies…when we the people come for you…we will come for your families too…treason is a hangable offense…and these people are about to find out why.

    this is an illustration of the dirty secret so proudly displayed in the Hagel nomination. If you would vote NO to your senator becoming the democrap president’s secretary of whatever, they WHY would you keep him as your senator?
    We have two big fat losers from TN, but they’re both R’s so we can’t afford to rock the boat and run somebody against them in the primary because “then the democrats could take the seat”.
    What Difference Does It Make© which party has control if they’re all gonna vote like democrats?

  • Only 19 republicans stand true. The others reveal their hypocrisy: supporting the socialist agenda of the progressive un-American democrats, stabbing our ally in the back, spending money we don’t have – duplicity as an art form!

  • congressmen are not allowed to vote 100% their convictions, or else they will bite the bullet. They have ideals until they are elected. Then they face reality. We can deal with another country with our weapons. If anything, we can comandeer them while they THINK they are theirs. Ron Paul chose to not show up and vote on certain things that he would normally be considered interested in. Other commenters in here put it plain, that certain of these are conservative in other crucial areas. I do believe we are in need of a huge miracle 2014 election that would be impossible for man to coordinate. The current House and Senate are like one toxic deck of cards right now.

  • TexasPatriot77

    Many “republicans” have been compromised and this vote proves it. Any help to enemies who want to kill us is beyond crazy. I am not a repub or a dem. Im just an American who belives in the Constitution. God help us all

  • Where’s Senator Murray’s (D-WA) vote?

  • To Richard Burr of North Carolina are you stupid, very disappointed I guess commonsense is not used at all in this case. Good Grief!!!

  • chuck_atilano

    Why does Egypt need F-16’s and tanks? Can’t they get along with their less lethal planes and hummers with gun mounts. Surely if our Government thinks it’s US citizens can get along with less, why shouldn’t our non-citizens be any different.

  • now we can stop wondering why our country is such a mess and who is responsible… it’s these nuts that think they are spending their own money and don’t mind arming terrorists…. and we keep voting them into office… does anyone else smell this ?

  • This is an eye opener. Texas is right, and many others are wrong. I’m defintely surprised about the Oklahomans. The vote was what I expected from California, the state of my birth and the first 21 years of my life. Please don’t tell anyone where I came from. It’s embarassing.

    I say, present it everyday until we get an answer on Benghazi. This is ludicrous.
