A very good question and we have photographic proof. (This piece is very satirical and I am not good at writing satire so I apologize upfront)
To those on Capital Hill who think this site is just extremist they are wrong we just play hardball. In fact this meeting was covered by Toledo Blade and a article was published about it to which I linked to below. The reporter who wrote the piece now works for another newspaper in Connecticut.
So here are some questions I have for Congresswoman Kaptur, Senators Schumer and Casey, and Prof. Ackermann about this meeting:
What was Kristina Keneally even doing in the United States given the existence of the Reed Amendment?
Much as Bill Clinton adamantly refused to attend a fundraiser at Kenneth Dart’s wife’s house(that Kenneth Dart was not even going to be attending) one would have to think some type of similar standard would exist for Democratic Members of Congress.
Ms Keneally when she used to be a US Citizen was a campaign volunteer for Congresswoman Kaptur would all agree something was seriously wrong in having a campaign volunteer who would be capable of such a despicable act as renouncing their US Citizenship. Would Congresswoman Kaptur return any campaign donations from Kristina Keneally given from when she was a US Citizen?
Would all agree given the despicableness of someone renouncing their US citizen that the US State Department should recall the US Ambassador to the Commonwealth of Australia in protest of the Australian people electing someone of such poor character to a position as important as Premier of New South Whales.
Would all agree that the US Ambassador to the Court of St James should be recalled in protest of Her Majesty Elizabeth Regina Windsor appointing someone of such ill character as Kristina Keneally to such an important position as being Her Majesty’s First Minister of New South Whales.
Would all agree that President Obama’s attendance at the G20 summit in Mexico would be a mistake given the attendance of Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard who is a personal friend and close political ally of Kristina Keneally.
If as it has been discussed by some in Australia that if Kristina Keneally were to ever become to the Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Australia would all agree(Kaptur, Schumer, Casey, and Ackermann) that the United States would have no choice but to terminate all military and intelligence cooperation agreements(ANZUS and “Five Eyes”) given the necessity that a future Prime Minister Keneally would have in reviewing certain sensitive intelligence and military information and her obvious lack of character(due to her renounciation of US Citizenship) to be trusted with certain information provided by the government of the United States.
(Note to Congresswoman Kaptur)
Clearly Kristina Keneally is someone you consider a friend despite her renounciation of US citizenship and I suspect you personally really didn’t have a problem with her doing so. Do the right thing come out and denounce the Schumer Casey legislation and the views of people like Prof. Ackermann.
Money quote about Krisitina Keneally:
Per Australian requirements, Mrs. Keneally renounced her U.S. citizenship before running for a seat in the 93-member parliament. She said that the renunciation was not overly emotional for her at the time but that she still becomes sentimental whenever she hears “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
Keneally’s name appeared on the Federal Register in 2003 so she would be covered by the Schumer Casey ten year look back in their legislation
