Video- MoonBat Peter King: NSA Should Monitor Congress In Case They're 'Talking To An Al Qaeda Leader'


He never fails to say something stupid. Via.


Rep. Peter King (R-NY): "Cruz is a fraud, he's a false prophet, he's leading us into the valley of death."


valley of death

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) had a thing or two to say to the Associated Press about a Rafael "Call Me Ted" Cruz thing or two. He's angry and he's not gonna take it any more. Or something.

Not only does he think the GOP shutdown of the government served no purpose (ya think?), but he also expressed his disgust with some in his fellow party members who haven't stood up to Reckless Raffy.

King popped out with this little nugget referring to the repeatedly futile and insane attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act:

King called on GOP leaders to "denounce him by name, say Ted Cruz is ruining the Republican Party." ...

"I actually went and said, 'This is crazy, Cruz is a fraud, he's a false prophet, he's leading us into the valley of death.'"

Raffy's your guy, Republicans, because, hey, he's a "real leader," right? And he's leading you straight down the toidy (of death).

VIDEO- Rep. Peter King wants Glenn Greenwald prosecuted for NSA leaks + "Republicans, conservatives becoming Michael Moores"


stfu lights camera

Fox's Megyn Kelly:

To take it another step and to say the journalists who published the information, the guys who published what he leaked, that they should face prosecution, that is news. Do you believe that? Do you stand by that, both Greenwald and the Washington Post reporter?

Rep. Peter King (R-NY):

I’m talking about Greenwald. Greenwald, not only did he disclose this information he has said that he has the names of CIA agents and assets around the world and they’re threatening to disclose that. The last time that was done in this country, we saw a CIA station chief murdered in Greece. No right is absolute. And even the press has certain restrictions. I think it should be very targeted and very selective and certainly a very rare exception. But in this case, when you have someone who has disclosed secrets like this and threatened to release more, then to me yes, there has to be legal action should be taken against him. This is a very unusual case with life and death implications for Americans.


What is the difference between Glenn Greenwald, who broke this story in the Guardian who is an American citizen but he’s living abroad, and James Rosen, and the Associated Press?


James Rosen never said he was going to release information that was going to kill Americans. He was never going to disclose the names of CIA agents and operatives around the world the way Greenwald is saying he is threatening to do...


Do you think that Glenn Greenwald should be prosecuted for what’s been released so far? ...


It certainly should be considered and the reason I say that is because he’s putting American lives at risk. This was clearly done I believe to hurt Americans...

King also said "Too many Republicans and conservatives are becoming Michael Moores" because they refer to "spying and snooping."

I'm sure he didn't mean that as a compliment, which is how I took it.

Ahem. Note to Pete, via Think Progress:

While Greenwald has said that he will report on more newsworthy secret information that was allegedly provided to him by a former NSA contractor, he has never said he plans to expose or out any CIA agents. And as this blog has previously noted, there is no known example of a U.S. official prosecuting a journalist for their own reporting or publication of material. Doing so would be an unprecedented expansion of government invasion into the free press, and would prompt an immediate deluge of constitutional challenges as a violation of the First Amendment.
