    Peter T. King - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    King voted for the 2008 Wall Street bailout, saying it was "necessary for the financial health of New York and his district."[4] He opposed the 2009 economic stimulus package[5] and the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009.[6] He supports congressional earmarks.[4]

    On May 27, 2010, the House of Representatives moved to vote to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell; King voted against the repeal of this policy.

    He was endorsed by the Brady Campaign in 2006[7] and 2008[8]. In 2008, the Brady Campaign endorsed five Republicans for Congress (The others are Chris Shays, Michael Castle, Mark Kirk, and Chris Smith).[9]

    King has been a vocal opponent of illegal immigration.[4] He opposed John McCain's 2007 effort to enact a path to citizenship for current illegal immigrants.[4]

    Although he supported John McCain for president in 2000 and despite his earlier disagreements with George W. Bush,[10][11] King later became a Bush supporter.[4] King also opposed McCain's calls for an end to torture methods used during terrorist suspect interrogations.[4] The New York Times wrote in 2006 that King had been "the Patriot Act's most fervent fan."[12] In 2008, he told the Times, "Look, we have not been attacked in seven years and it's not because of luck."[4]

    He supported the Iraq War from 2002 on.[4] King supported President Obama's order to kill Osama Bin Laden, saying that he knows it is a "tough decision" to make in the Situation Room. He also approved of Obama's surprise trip to Afghanistan in May 2012.[13]

    King has opposed President Barack Obama's executive order to close the Guantanamo Bay detention camp.[14] Since 2009 King has argued against holding terrorist trials in New York City saying that enormous security risks and financial costs would accompany the public trials. In April 2011, he called for Attorney General Eric Holder to resign due to Holder's plans to transfer Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other alleged co-conspirators in the September 11, 2001 attacks from Guantanamo to New York City for trials in U.S. federal court. King denounced Holder's plan "as the most irresponsible decision ever made by any attorney general."[15] Holder had recently backed off, announcing that the trials would be held in a military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base.

    King continued to challenge Holder in April 2011, demanding to know why the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), its co-founder Omar Ahmad, the Islamic Society of North America, the North American Islamic Trust. and other unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial, were not being prosecuted by the United States Department of Justice. In a letter to Holder, King wrote he had recently learned that the decision had been made by high-ranking Justice Department officials "over the vehement and stated objections of special agents and supervisors of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, as well as the prosecutors at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Dallas", adding that "there should be full transparency into the Department’s decision."[16] Holder responded that the decision not to prosecute had been made during the Bush administration. The U.S. Attorney in Dallas said he alone had been responsible for the decision, which had been made based on an analysis of the law and the evidence, with no political pressure involved.[17]

    In December 2009, King commented on reports that accused attempted airline bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, had admitted to being trained and equipped in Yemen and on then pending plans to release several Guantanamo prisoners to Yemen: "I don't think Guantanamo should be closed, but if we're going to close it I don't believe we should be sending people to Yemen where prisoners have managed to escape in the past .... Obviously, if [Abdulmutallab] did get training and direction from Yemen, it just adds to what is already a dangerous situation", he said.[18]|

    King criticized the activities of WikiLeaks and in December 2010 suggested that the group be designated a "terrorist organization" and treated as such by U.S. agencies.[19]

    In 2011, Rep. King became a co-sponsor of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).[20]

    King praised Obama's nominations of Leon Panetta for United States Secretary of Defense and General David Petraeus for Director of the Central Intelligence Agency saying, "Director Panetta has done an outstanding job at the CIA, and General Petraeus has distinguished himself as one of the great American military leaders. Both men ... will be instrumental as we continue to combat the terrorist threat.”[21]

    After which of these repeated body blows does the media finally decide to stop carrying Obama's water and start doing honest reporting?

    The media today for the most part is just an extension of the WH Communications dept.
