Our youngest Senator, Tom Cotton, is a force to be reckoned with, the type of young man many of us have yearned for, a Ronald Reagan or George Washington type. Tough, honest and quiet, he doesn't beat a path to the nearest TV camera, he loves America, puts country above self and seems completely transparent.
Fellow conservatives, if you're losing hope after this last six years of lies, half truths and Constitution trampling, take heart, for we have a whole group of Tom Cottons on the horizon.
Among them, senators Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, and governors Scott Walker (Wisconsin) and Bobby Jindal (Louisiana) to name but a few.
Just this week, Rubio, in a congressional hearing, ate Secretary of State Kerry's lunch by bringing out the fact Iranians are fighting alongside forces in Iraq, bleeding over into Afghanistan where we have many soldiers ... with their hands tied under this administration. This is the same Iran that gave aid and a safe haven to al-Qaida when they knocked our twin towers down, the Iran whose nuclear aspirations are helped by Obama, the Iran Kerry lies about and defends.
During this same time period, Gov. Scott Walker was knocking Obama's feet out from under him after Obama criticized Walker's union dues plan in Wisconsin. Walker calmly replied that Obama should look to his state as a way to grow jobs ... 100,000 new jobs, 30,000 new businesses, unemployment genuinely down to 5 percent.
Sen. Cotton, Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts from Harvard, then a law degree from Harvard, was in his senior year when Islamic terrorists knocked down our twin towers. The son of a Vietnam war vet (4th Infantry Division), Tom wanted to quit school to join his country in fighting Al Qaeda. Reminded of school loans, he finished, worked, paid the loans down, then joined. He was commissioned as an Army 2nd lieutenant and was a much decorated veteran, including the Bronze Star. He was in the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne, completed ranger school, and led combat patrols in Iraqi Freedom. Back in the states, he volunteered to return to combat in Afghanistan. And he did.
Unlike Obama, Cotton knows his enemy well for he has faced them down in both Iraq and Afghanistan. It is for this reason, he wrote an open letter to the New York Times when three of their journalists ran articles detailing Bush's secret program monitoring
terrorist finances, suggesting the reporters should be imprisoned for espionage.
And now Cotton, who was first an attorney, then in the House and now a Senator, wrote an OPEN letter to the Iranian leaders explaining our constitutional system to them. Unlike Obamacare, the 322-page FCC regulations, Hillary's e-mails, the hidden whereabouts of millions of illegals, the truth about unemployment, multiple millions missing from the State Department, Cotton put the letter on the net for all to see. How refreshing!
In the letter, Cotton explains to Iran that when Obama is gone, the pact with Obama will be gone also.
In the response here at home (although it's hard to recognize home much these days), Kerry said the deal doesn't have to be brokered through Congress and it can be changed at any time by anyone.
Hillary Clinton's negative comments got this response from Cotton: No Commander in Chief should be helping the worst terrorist nation get nuclear weapons.
The NY Daily News ran a picture of McConnell, Cruz, Cotton and Paul with "TRAITORS, GOPers try to sabotage Bam nuke deal." Cotton has also been called Tehran Tom.
Who knows why Obama wants to help Iran get nuclear weapons. Maybe it's because of Valerie Jarrett, the woman who pulls his strings and runs the administration for him, was born in Iran and raised in Chicago raised. Or is it his apparent hatred for Israel and Netanyahu, the first country in Iran's sights, right before us?
We do know why Obama hates Cotton and others like him.
Senator Cotton is pro-life, Obama supports denying medical care to aborted babies who survive.
Cotton believes homosexuality is a choice and sin according to the Bible; some believe Obama is a homosexual or is bi-sexual.
Cotton is a practicing Christian; Obama a Christian-hating Muslim.
Cotton believes America is exceptional; Obama believes we are exceptional except that
every other country thinks they are exceptional too, and he himself thinks we should be brought down a notch ... and he's just the man to do it. And he has, usually illegally and with unbelievable power grabs.
Cotton believes in individual responsibility, Obama believes in trapping people in government hand-outs for the sole purpose of garnering Democrat votes.
And Gitmo. No matter if they go straight back to the battlefield, Obama wants GITMO closed and has been releasing the worst in droves.
During a hearing, Sen. Cotton let us all know on live TV his feelings about Gitmo.
"Islamic terrorists do not need an excuse to attack the United States. They do not attack us for what we do, they attack us for WHO WE ARE.
"(Closing Gitmo) is not a security decision, it is a political decision based on a promise
the POTUS made during his campaign. In my opinion, the only problem with Guantanamo bay is that there are too many empty beds and cells there right now. We should be sending more terrorists there for further interrogation to keep this country safe.
"As far as I'm concerned, every last one of them can rot in hell, but as long as they are
not doing that, they can rot in Guantanamo bay."
