McCain Slams Bachmann For 'Unwarranted And Unfounded Attack' On Clinton Aide
On the floor of the Senate Wednesday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) repudiated Rep. Michele Bachmann's (R-MN) McCarthyesque witch-hunt to root out the alleged Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the U.S. government.

Rep. Bachmann doubles down, alleges Rep. Ellison has ties to Muslim Brotherhood as well
When Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) sent her letter regarding Huma Abedin to U.S. intelligence and security agencies, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) was not the only one to recoil: Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), the first Muslim ever to be elected to the U.S. Congress, lashed out as well.
Part of a group of Democrats calling Bachmann's concerns a "baseless witch-hunt," Ellison actually said Bachmann should apologize to Abedin. (But as I've highlighted in a different post, to brush off Bachmann's concerns this easily would be to overlook at least three alleged ties between Abedin's family and the Muslim Brotherhood.)
Instead of apologizing, Bachmann is doubling down, and has added Ellison's name to the list of U.S. officials whom she believes should be investigated for ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Ellison has responded by saying Bachmann's allegations are false, and that he believes she just wants attention.

Obama could nullify the 2nd Amendment
When Barack Obama signs the United Nation's Arms Trade Treaty late this month, the force of his signature alone could suffice to nullify the 2nd Amendment rights of the American people. How is this possible if a 2/3rds vote by the Senate --- that is, constitutionally mandated ratification --- is required before the United States may become a legal party to any treaty?
