We only have to go to Senator Mary Landrieu’s (D-LA) voting record to see that she has not listened to the people of Louisiana! We find her first huge act of voting against our very standard of speaking. Senator Mary Landrieu voted “Nay” to making English the national language in 2006. Now why did she do that? Was it to keep the small Hispanic vote in her corner? We don’t know for sure, but she voted against what the United States should have declared many years ago!
Another instance, back in 2009, involving Senator Mary Landrieu, was when the Senate was about to vote on the “Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. Does anyone remember that the bill did not have the much needed votes, but all of a sudden two senators seemed to get a payoff to vote for it? Senator Mary Landrieu obtained $300 million, which she later claimed was money to be used for Katrina. Senator Landrieu voted for Obamacare, even though 70% of the people in Louisiana said they did not want her to. Of course, when $300 million is thrown your way to vote for a bill that 70% of your people do not want, a normal passionate person would listen to the people they represent. Then again, $300 million for a project of her liking is much more important than the 70% of the people she was supposed to be representing!
Just as recent as last year, Senator Mary Landrieu told a local CBS affiliate, “The Affordable Care Act, as I said, the bill itself has very good concepts, and yes, I would support it again.”
Let’s look at the most recent votes by Senator Mary Landrieu. Let us look at the recent vote for one of the judges to a court that seems to indicate that Senator Mary Landrieu either does not know this person or she votes for anything Obama asks her to vote for, even when the person is for a “New World Order,” like Cornelia “Nina” Pillard is! Ms. Pillard’s remarks point to a possible future elimination of the United States and the Constitution to form a “transnational law,” which would, in some cases, make the Constitution inapplicable due to the International law!
Pillard is the founding Academic Co-Director and Professor at the London-based Center for Transnational Legal Studies (CTLS), whose mission, by Pillard’s telling, is “based on recognition that now we need to make some shifts from nation- or region-centric to a more broadly transnational, even global, orientation”—i.e., to view international law, and not just the U.S. Constitution, as a legitimate basis for the formulation of public policy in America. Pillard’s CTLS co-founder (and occasional co-author), Muthucumaraswamy Sornarajah, lauds the transnational movement for serving as a check to “the age of greed” brought about by American “hegemony.” And Pillard concurs with Sornarajah’s belief that transnational legal studies should not seek to promote U.S. interests, but rather should emphasize the need for “fairer and more environmentally sustainable economic development.
Now check out just how Senator Mary Landrieu voted in order to get people like Ms. Pillard into the judicial system, where the socialists wish to have them. She voted along with the other Democrats, who should be called socialists due to the way they are working their ideology into the United States.
Executive and Judicial Nominations – Cloture – Vote Sustained (52-48)
Senate Democrats succeeded in deploying the “nuclear option” to make the most fundamental change to floor operations in almost four decades, ending the minority’s ability to kill most presidential nominations by filibuster. The Senate voted, 52-48, to change the rules by rejecting the opinion of the presiding officer that a supermajority is required to limit debate, or invoke cloture, on executive branch nominees and those for seats on federal courts short of the Supreme Court. Three Democrats — Carl Levin of Michigan, Joe Manchin III of West Virginia, and Mark Pryor of Arkansas — voted to keep the rules unchanged. The nomination of Patricia Ann Millett to the District of Columbia circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals was the direct cause of this rule change. Senate Republicans, however, had blocked the nominations of two other D.C. Circuit Court judges in recent weeks as well, setting up the parliamentary showdown.
Sen. Mary Landrieu voted YES
Sen. David Vitter voted NO
On June 4, 2013, President Obama nominated Millett as well as Cornelia Pillard and Robert Wilkins to fill three vacancies on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia—the nation’s second-highest court, and one that is often called upon to resolve critically important cases involving the separation of powers, the role of government, the rights of federal officials, and the decisions of administrative agencies. When their confirmations were subsequently filibustered by Senate Republicans, Majority Leader Harry Reid called for the Senate to lower the number of votes required to break a filibuster (in cases involving judicial and executive nominees), from the traditional 60 to a simple majority. On November 21, Reid’s historic proposal was pushed through the Senate without any Republican support.
Senator Mary Landrieu supported this action as she has done for anything Obama wants her to vote for, or so it seems!
However, Senator Mary Landrieu does not stop here. She joined Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) and others to do away with the Senate rules so the majority could pass the nominations for Obama. Senator Landrieu does not want you to think she votes with Obama all the time, even though she does! That is where part of her lies begin to catch up with her.
Additionally, what Senator Mary Landrieu did in voting against prohibiting the United States from entering into the United Nations Small Arms Treaty is as close as it gets to treason. Landrieu was one of 46 Senators who are in favor of the United Nations Small Arms Treaty; a treaty which would have given the United Nations the right to come inside the United States and first “register” all guns, and, no doubt, would be followed by confiscation.
In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.
The Statement of Purpose from the Bill reads:
“To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.”
The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms.
The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry on all private guns and ammo.”
We can also see from the following video, that Senator Mary Landrieu lied to the American people. She is a servant of Barack Obama and the Democrats, not the people she represents!
