New York Times endorses Hillary Clinton! UPDATED!

OH, you mean you did not hear the news? Well actually, they have not fully endorsed her, yet, but that is what this story is all about Absolving Miss What Difference Does it Make. See it WAS all about that video after all

Months of investigation by The New York Times, centered on extensive interviews with Libyans in Benghazi who had direct knowledge of the attack there and its context, turned up no evidence that Al Qaeda or other international terrorist groups had any role in the assault. The attack was led, instead, by fighters who had benefited directly from NATO’s extensive air power and logistics support during the uprising against Colonel Qaddafi. And contrary to claims by some members of Congress, it was fueled in large part by anger at an American-made video denigrating Islam.

All the News that is fit to spin. Donald Douglas is also talking about what I am calling Operation Cover Hillary’s Ass 2016!

 

I read the report. It’s supposed to be so “complicated” you see. It’s impossible for the rubes to understand. But read it for yourself. Pure convenience. A story-line cooked perfectly for a political party on the ropes and about to go down hard. Meanwhile, so much remains unanswered. See the Weekly Standard, for just a start, “Questions They Won’t Answer.” 

Democrats hold illegal immigrants in higher esteem than our veterans

Despicable, absolutely despicable. And any  Republican who went along with this should be ashamed of themselves. There are dozens and dozens of things we could cut, but we target disabled vets? Every single member who voted for this should be thrown from office.

A note about the clip from Patty Murray promising to fix the problem, after the bill is passed. Why after? Why not fix it now, before passing it? This is just more double talk from our Congress. Don’t worry about this bill, we will fix it later, right, sure you will Congresswoman.

Another note about our politicians in Congress. Only the Tea Party members seem sincere about fixing our fiscal house. The career politicians seem far more concerned with retaining power than serving their country. We can change this culture of Congressional entitlement, or begin to at least, next November. We need to retake the Senate, and keep the House, but we also need to support more Conservative candidates like Milton Wolf in Kansas over incumbent Republicans who have forgotten what their job is.

 

 

Speaker Face Lift has finally lost the last of her mind

Via Weasel Zippers

Via Politico:

Nancy Pelosi isn’t going anywhere.

While many thought the California Democrat would step down as House minority leader after this Congress, Pelosi confidants now believe she will remain atop House leadership through 2016 and maybe even longer.

Pelosi herself won’t tip her hand about her plans. But she doesn’t appear to be contemplating retirement.

“I’m not here on a shift. I’m here on a mission — and when my work is done, that’s when I will leave,” Pelosi said in a recent interview with POLITICO.

A mission she says. Hmmm, seems that mission is to pad her riches, and destroy what is left of our Constitution.

 

 

Congressman Peter King, feel free to go fuck yourself

Asshole! I suppose he never noticed when Democrats attacked George W. Bush just because he was from a different party?

Via The Hill:

People are willing to demonize Obama because he’s from a different party, Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) said.

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) said Tuesday that there are about 30 to 40 Republicans in Congress who refuse to recognize the legitimacy of Obama’s presidency and are seeking to erase everything that’s happened during his administration.

King made the remarks in a discussion with Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball, after the host asked how many Republicans would like to “erase [Obama’s] record as if he was never here.” [...]

“This is a very dangerous aspect to our government,” King said. “The fact that we have people who are willing to demonize the president of the United States because he’s from a different party.”

Way to prostate yourself on MSNBS Rep. King. Gutless wonder! I suppose we can expect King to be doing ads for knee pads soon.

 

House votes to defund Obama’s back door Dream Act

Good for them, I wonder how long until Senator McCain is bashing them as wacko birds over this

The House of Representatives voted 224–201 Thursday morning to deny funding for the Obama administration’s controversial Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. The policy, which was implemented via executive order in June 2012, effectively assumes the enactment of the DREAM Act, legislation that has failed to pass Congress on multiple occasions, and has raised concerns about executive overreach:

Republicans have argued that these orders amount to the selective enforcement of U.S. immigration laws that discourages enforcement against children who were brought to the United States illegally, or illegal immigrant adults who are not in any legal trouble. Many Republicans have dubbed Obama’s orders as “administrative amnesty.”

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) sponsored the amendment to the 2014 Department of Homeland Security spending bill, and called for its passage in late Wednesday debate by saying Obama’s orders — also known as the Morton memos — violate the Constitution.

“The point here is … the President does not have the authority to waive immigration law, nor does he have the authority to create it out of thin air, and he’s done both with these Morton memos in this respect,” King said.

President Obama works for us, and is bound by the Constitution. Facts he chooses to ignore. 

 

The biggest problem with the Immigration Reform Bill? The morons writing it!

I would love to see Congress come up with a meaningful immigration reform bill, but the biggest problem is this, CONGRESS! Let’s face it, Congress cannot do much that makes any sense. If Congress set out to fix your flat tire, it would take a month, cost you 12 billion dollars, and all four of your tires, plus your spare would be flat after they finished. Congress is completely incompetent, and you can trust me, I have worked for a corporate restaurant chain or two, I know incompetence. 

Every time I hear some talking head talk about the importance of immigration reform, I nod in agreement then the realization hits me. Any bill’s success would depend on the government doing what it has refused to do for decades now. They talk about making those who are here illegally pay back taxes. Really? Sounds good, except for this. the same buffoons telling us this are also the same buffoons who tell us we cannot deport those here illegally because we cannot find them. So, we can’t find them to boot them out, but we can find them to collect back taxes? Sure, sure, we can also look at buying that bridge in Arizona while we are at it.

If we want, as a nation, to remain a nation, we MUST fix our border issues. The biggest issue regarding border security, and fixing our immigration system is national sovereignty. Frankly, most of Congress could not care any less about that. Democrats see a huge voting block, and we know Democrats will always put securing political gain over patriotism. Republicans also see a huge voting block that they think they can win over. Of course, too many Republicans think that they can out Democrat Democrats, which, of course they cannot. So, instead of anything that might fix the problem, we get bills that run over 1,000 pages, and that create more bureaucracy and we know that will only make the solution as bad as, if not worse than the original problem.

Now, here is where I would usually give some advice to Congress on how to FIX the problem. I might say we must not even speak of amnesty, in any form, we must not talk about paths to citizenship until we secure the border. That must be the first step, because we are simply encouraging more to come here to take advantage of whatever amnesty gets passed. I could tell them to round up the worst illegals, felons, gang members  and either boot their asses out or lock them up somewhere. I could tell them to streamline the process that LEGAL immigrants have to go through. I could advise them to look for solutions for those who have been here a long time, or whose parents brought them here AFTER, and only AFTER those steps are taken. I could tell them many things, but, would these idiots listen? No, because they are more concerned for exploiting the problem than they are in fixing it, and that is why I hold out no hope in anything meaningful coming out of the Gang of Eight A.K.A. Ochos Stupidos.

The AP scandal will get much worse if this is true UPDATED! Congressman Nunes doubles down

Via Doug Giles OBAMA’S BOYS TAPED PHONE CALLS BETWEEN MEMBERS OF CONGRESS & AP REPORTERS

 

The Obama administration may have even secretly obtained phone records for members of Congress is going to be a bombshell if true.  See what Rep. Devin Nunes told Hugh Hewitt this afternoon:

Rep. Nunes: I don’t think people are focusing on the right thing when they talk about going after the AP reporters. The big problem that I see is that they actually tapped right where I’m sitting right now, the Cloak Room.

Hewitt: Wait a minute, this is news to me.

Nunes: The Cloak Room in the House of Representatives.

Hewitt: I have no idea what you’re talking about.

Nunes: So when they went after the AP reporters, right? Went after all of their phone records, they went after the phone records, including right up here in the House Gallery, right up from where I’m sitting right now. So you have a real separation of powers issue that did this really rise to the level that you would have to get phone records that would, that would most likely include members of Congress, because as you know…

Hewitt: Wow.

Nunes: …members of Congress talk to the press all the time.

Some are saying that none of the current scandals will get Obama, but if this one is true, and we do not have any proof that it is, it just might. It depends on two things, first being the veracity of the accusation, the second being the media. The big question is if the media IS really out of love with Obama. If they are, then look out, it could get rocky, particularly if the media focuses energy on all the current scandals. Stay tuned

 UPDATE! Congressman Nunes is not backing off his accusations

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) doubled down on the accusations he made yesterday on the Hugh Hewitt program that the Holder Justice Department was monitoring phone records from the House press gallery. Today Nunes told reporter David Drucker, “There’s no other explanation.”

Roll Call reported:

Expanding on a Wednesday interview with conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt,Rep. Devin Nunes told me Thursday morning that there is no other explanation in light of the DOJ’s acknowledgment that, as part of its inquiry into national security leaks, it subpoenaed AP phone records from the House press gallery.That’s a prime spot from which reporters frequently initiate and receive telephone calls from members of Congress and their staff.

The California Republican said that the AP phone records scandal that has focused on First Amendment infringement actually runs deeper, and should examine what he is convinced includes an illegal violation of the separation of powers by President Barack Obama’s administration.

“As I pointed out to Hugh Hewitt, there’s no question that Justice knows what members of Congress the AP was talking to during the two-month time period,” Nunes told CQ Roll Call.

Nunes serves on the House Intelligence Committee and, as such, said he has some familiarity with the leak the Department of Justice is investigating, a leak he said many committee members are genuinely concerned about.

Again, stay tuned

 

Team Obama launches “Smear the Whistle Blowers Campaign”

Reaganite republican has a breakdown of the depravity

  • Servile Obammunist lackeys in Congress attempted to blame the Benghazi debacle on Sequestration.
  • Outside of Fox and Cheryl Atkins of CBS, televised MSM media all but ignoredyesterday’s SIX HOUR Benghazigate hearing while some milked details of the Cleveland sex-dungeon story as a handy-dandy smokescreen.
  • As thanks for her principled journalism, Atkins is already being treated like an unprofessional pariah 
    by her own network.
  • Predictably, goofy lib bloggers are flailing-away with puerile ‘arguments’ and attempts at mockery of the hearings, and will continue to do so until those wackadoodle Republicans drop all this unpleasantness and join them in a chorus of 
    ‘What Difference Does It Make’.


So is that it? Hardly- there’s now a rising call that a Select Committee on Benghazi be convened- but like most things we need to get done these days, that’s going to require 
some prodding
 of Speaker John Boehner: I encourage all to
do just that today.

 

Senator Mike Lee has some good thoughts on immigration reform, and legislating in general

James Madison saw the folly of legislation that was too large. His wisdom is being shown to be true. Consider the disaster that Obamacare is becoming. Even some of those who sponsored the bill are now warning us of its unintended consequences. Senator Mike Lee notes that immigration reform, like Obamacare, is being handled in a one-size fits all manner that will not work. It seems Congress cannot restrain itself from attempting grandiose all-encompassing bills that they fantasize will make all our problems go away.

 

In an op-ed for the Deseret News, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), who is my favorite member of the Senate (though I also have very high regard for several others such as Rubio, Paul, Cruz and Toomey), suggests that we should learn from the disaster of Obamacare, namely that it was a massive bill that nobody understood (or yet understands), and that it hides as much as it reveals.

He applies this lesson to immigration and says that “Immigration reform needs to happen step-by-step, not all at once.”

From Sen. Lee’s op-ed:

Much like the current bill, the comprehensive immigration reform I envision includes: real border security, visa modernization, employment verification, robust guest worker programs for both high- and low-skilled workers, and a compassionate approach to dealing with those currently in the country illegally. But history teaches that each of these vital components must be addressed incrementally and sequentially in order to ensure meaningful results.

Seems pretty logical doesn’t it? Fix the border FIRST. Carefully come up with plans AFTER the border is secured to address those already here, and the issues of visas, and any guest worker programs that might be implemented. Instead, the Gang of Eight seems hell bent on passing as big a bill as possible, as quickly as possible. And, anyone who dares suggest more prudent approaches, or who suggests that maybe the American people ought to be able to read any proposed legislation is labelled as racist, or anti-immigration. In other words, again, like with Obamacare, we see that our representatives have forgotten where the power lies. They will pass bills, THEN allow us lowly peons to “see what is in it”. They seem far more worried about passing a bill, no matter how bad it may be, as long as they can tie a ribbon around that bill that reads “bipartisan”. Frankly, I do not care if any bill is ever passed just because it is bipartisan. A bad bill is a bad bill. What I do care about is that the bill be constitutional, and that the people support it. Is that really so hard?

 

Political has been heart broken Congress did not pass gun control after Newtown

Ah Peggy Noonan, who continues to get air time even though she is well past relevant

On this weekend’s broadcast of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Wall Street Journal op-ed columnist Peggy Noonan said Congress has betrayed the public trust after the Newtown, Conn. elementary school massacre.

“I think a big part of this story is that people don’t trust Congress,” Noonan said. “After Newtown, there was a great bubbling feeling of, my goodness, there must be at least some things we can do legislatively to make this whole gun situation better. If the Congress, if the Senate had moved quickly on discrete, small bills having to do with background checks — I mean quickly, in the weeks after Newtown … They failed to move quick and small.”

I wonder what “small” gun grabbing bills Noonan would ask for. She mentions background checks, which we already have. Maybe she thinks the feds should stick their nose into every private gun sale? Such a bill would hurt the law-abiding and do nothing to stop criminals.

Not to mention that Congress really should NOT “move fast”. Thomas Jefferson certainly would not be a fan of that. Bills passed quickly are antithetical to liberty and open government. Frankly bills ought to take a long time, so the people can know what is in them and have their say.

CNN regular Robert Zimmerman blames Chicago violence on budget cuts that have not happened yet

The Left’s ability to tell lie after lie is amazing. They really do not even fake attempts at honest debate any more. Take Democratic strategist bull shit artist Robert Zimmerman for example

“[L]et’s be very clear about what’s happening in Washington today, and why it’s undermining the city of Chicago — because there’s a mindset now in our government, in Washington, from the Republican members of Congress, that sequestration is an acceptable way of doing business, that we can in fact engage in these massive irresponsible cuts that no one thinks is a logical approach to budgeting,” Zimmerman said. “And that undermines law enforcement in our cities; it undermines so many education opportunities for our younger people and it does in fact create an impoverished class of our society that leads to abuse, leads to violence and leads to more Chicagos.”

Man you really need hip waders on to listen to such verbal sewage frankly. In the first place, there have been no massive budget cuts, certainly the cuts if we get sequestration, which was Obama’s idea, are very small, despite the Left’s talk of Armageddon. So, to believe this pile of lies, you have to believe that budget cuts that have not happened yet undermined educational opportunities for gang bangers in Chicago, a city run by Democrats for decades, causing them to kill each other, and innocent people. 

WOW! Is that what it is like to be a political strategist now? Basically, you just lie through your teeth? 

 

Your Marxist Moron of the Day is…….

The RINO of all RINOs David Frum, who urges President Obama to go after guns no matter what, Congress does, or what the will of the people is. 

Obama needs a ‘Plan B’ on guns — David Frum, CNN

On guns, President Obama needs a “Plan B.”

The president himself recognizes that the votes probably aren’t there to pass any significant gun legislation through Congress. In his State of the Union address, he was reduced to pleading with Congress to allow a vote at all, never mind actually enact anything. [...]

Fifty years ago, Americans contended with similar public ignorance — and similar industry misinformation — about the hazards of cigarette smoking. The argument was settled by the famous surgeon general’s report of 1964.

See, Frum just says we are all too stupid to know what enlightened Nanny Statists like him know, that guns are bad! How lucky we are to have useful idiots intellectual elites like Frum to save us from ourselves. I mean who needs all those icky liberties anyway?

Congress in the mid-1990s forbade the federal government to fund its own research into the health risks presented by guns. By now, however, enough research has been done by privately funded scholars that the surgeon general could write a report based on existing material. Such a report would surely reach the conclusion that a gun in the home greatly elevates risks of suicide, lethal accident and fatal domestic violence. The first step to changing gun policy is to change public attitudes about guns, as Americans previously changed their attitudes about tobacco and drunken driving.

Of course, Frum likes to ignore all the times that Americans use guns to defend themselves, something he says almost never happens, although it happens more often than all those incidents he mentions above. What Frum wants is a government led propaganda campaign to demonize guns. He would feel better if we did not have that whole right to self-defense, another one of those liberties elites like Frum think we should not have. Of course, we can find reports right now that show that many things are more dangerous than guns, would Frum cede the power to demonize those to Congress as well?

The surgeon general can lead that attitude change with more authority than any other public official.

YES! Our attitudes are out of line, at least according to Frum, and we need attitude adjustments. Man, it is too bad Frum was not around to straighten out those kooky Founding Fathers way back when. Natural rights? Not in Frumland boys and girls!

The second step that might be taken — again without the need for any congressional vote — is for the Senate to convene hearings into the practices of the gun industry analogous to those it convened into the tobacco industry in the 1990s

AHA! Yes, those gun companies advertise their products! How evil can they get? Besides, guns are evil, just ask Frum the Elite.

 

Here come the Climate Change nuts!

Via The Daily Caller

Democratic Sens. Bernie Sanders and Barbara Boxer will hold a news conference on Thursday to announce new legislation that would put a fee on carbon dioxide emissions to help fund green-energy projects such as wind, solar, geothermal, and biomass.

The legislation would also compensate consumers for higher energy bills.

 In his State of the Union address on Tuesday night, President Obama threatened to use his executive authority if Congress failed to act on climate change.

“But if Congress won’t act soon to protect future generations, I will,” Obama added. “I will direct my Cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy.”

I wonder where these geniuses think they will get the money to help us with the higher energy bills? The higher taxes ALWAYS soak the middle class and poor the most

 

Just call him the Executive Order President

Maybe President E.O. for short? Clearly, President Obama has no regard for the separation of powers, or the will of the people. It is the Legislative Branch that is supposed to write laws, clearly, this president prefers to rule by executive orders

Via WaPo:

President Obama is considering a series of new executive actions aimed at working around a recalcitrant Congress, including policies that could allow struggling homeowners to refinance their mortgages, provide new protections for gays and lesbians, make buildings more energy-efficient and toughen regulations for coal-fired power plants, according to people outside the White House involved in discussions on the issues.

One of the first orders is expected this week, when the Obama administration will call for the creation of new standards on what critical private-sector companies should do to protect their computer systems from hackers.

The moves underscore Obama’s increasingly aggressive use of executive authority, including 23 administrative actions on gun violence last month and previous orders that delayed deportations of young illegal immigrants and will lower student loan payments.

I have never been a fan of executive orders, and I never will.they place far too much power in the hands of one man. It seems that James Madison had similar concerns when he wrote this. “The accumulation of all power, legislative, executive, and judiciary in the same hands…may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.”
–James Madison, Federalist 46

I am sure there is a valid place for such orders, but, those should be very specific and in my view rare.

The next time our president, or any Liberal says that we should pass gun control because “if it can just save one life”

Remember this masterful piece at Allergic to Bull There is lot to read and all of it is well worth your while, but let me highlight this part

And then there is the special case of Barack Obama.  I say special because I can’t think of any other prominent individual whose pro-choice position is so radical that it so effectively cuts into his own position.  First, for Obama, gun control is all about the children (see right):

That’s an image from his press conference when he announced his executive orders and legislative proposals for gun control, and he made sure to surround himself with kids who wrote letters to him pleading for gun control.  Also for free candy.  Really mostly, for free candy.  And yes, that is a joke, but a joke with a point.  There is a reason why kids don’t vote: because they lack the maturity to deal with life as it is.  For instance, I had two posts the other day talking about the relevance of rape, a crime that these kids probably don’t even know is a thing.
 
And of course Obama declared in a weekly address that “If even one life can be saved, we have an obligation to try”:
So if we can save one life, eh, Obama?  Well, that is not what you thought when the issue came to infanticide.  From Andrew McCarthy’s searing work on the subject:
 
There wasn’t any question about what was happening. The abortions were going wrong. The babies weren’t cooperating. They wouldn’t die as planned. Or, as Illinois state senator Barack Obama so touchingly put it, there was “movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just coming out limp and dead.”
 
No, Senator. They wouldn’t go along with the program. They wouldn’t just come out limp and dead.
 
They were coming out alive. Born alive. Babies. Vulnerable human beings Obama, in his detached pomposity, might otherwise include among “the least of my brothers.” But of course, an abortion extremist can’t very well be invoking Saint Matthew, can he? So, for Obama, the shunning of these least of our brothers and sisters — millions of them — is somehow not among America’s greatest moral failings.
 
No. In Obama’s hardball, hard-Left world, these least become “that fetus, or child — however you want to describe it.”
 
Most of us, of course, opt for “child,” particularly when the “it” is born and living and breathing and in need of our help. Particularly when the “it” is clinging not to guns or religion but to life.
 
But not Barack Obama. As an Illinois state senator, he voted to permit infanticide. And now, running for president, he banks on media adulation to insulate him from his past.
 
The record, however, doesn’t lie.
 
From later in the article:
 
My friend Hadley Arkes ingeniously argued that legislatures, including Congress, should take up “Born Alive” legislation: laws making explicit what decency already made undeniable: that from the moment of birth — from the moment one is expelled or extracted alive from the birth canal — a human being is entitled to all the protections the law accords to living persons.
 
Such laws were enacted by overwhelming margins. In the United States Congress, even such pro-abortion activists as Sen. Barbara Boxer went along.
 
But not Barack Obama. In the Illinois senate, he opposed Born-Alive tooth and nail.
 
In other words, these proposed laws would require doctors to try to save such a fetus’ life and naturally forbid all people from killing it.  And indeed, this is not a matter of the choice of the mother.  If the fetus is actually outside her body, and it can live, what consequence is it of hers?  If she doesn’t want to raise it, I am sure many childless couples would be happy to adopt her baby.  But that is what we are talking about: a baby, by the definition of all but the most radical. 
Ah the smell of Liberal hypocrisy. If just one life can be saved? No, if just one more ultra-Liberal law that tramples basic human liberty can be passed by exploiting tragedies is more like it!

 

Boehner out as Speaker?

Via Fox News

John Boehner could be in for a fight Thursday when the newly seated House votes for the next speaker, with conservatives grumbling about his leadership and a report surfacing about a supposed plan to challenge him. 

The 11-term congressman, who’s endured his share of political turbulence, presumably enters the election with the upper hand. So far, a single viable Republican challenger has not emerged and the rules of the vote tend to work in Boehner’s favor. 

But Boehner’s potential troubles were compounded by a late-night flare up with outraged northeast lawmakers over a decision by the speaker to postpone a vote on an aid package for Superstorm Sandy victims. 

I am not sure if Boehner is out, or if the next Republican will be better, but I do not have much faith in the GOP to get it right if Boehner is replaced. Meanwhile, stories like this make me wonder if this country is even capable of righting the ship.

The fiscal deal cemented Tuesday night includes a one-year extension of tax credits for the wind-energy industry that will cost taxpayers an estimated $12.1 billion.

The extension was part of a tax-extender package that the Senate Finance Committee approved in August and was included in the final package that Congress approved before sending it to the president.

Congressional Republicans and other fiscal conservatives opposed the extension, arguing the deal between Congress and the White House was supposed to include cuts to federal spending, not additional subsidies for alternative-energy programs.

Prior to the vote, Tennessee Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander cited several reasons to end the tax credit – including the cost to taxpayers, putting coal and nuclear energy at an economic disadvantage and wind companies producing just 3 percent of U.S. electricity despite receiving billions in subsidies over the past 20 years.

 “A better idea is to reduce the debt and increase research for solar, batteries, carbon capture from coal plants, more energy-efficient buildings, advanced biofuels and the disposal of nuclear waste,” Alexander wrote in The National Journal. “Then let the marketplace decide which fuels can produce enough clean, cheap reliable energy.”

The Production Tax Credit was created in 1992 and has been extended for wind companies several times over the past several years at an estimated cost of $16 billion to taxpayers.

Using taxes to reward certain behaviors, or to punish others or using taxes to favor one business over another is a dreadful mistake. It goes against the founding principles of America, and against common sense. If an industry cannot survive on its own, let it die. Propping it up with tax dollars hurts everyone eventually. Not to mention that these types of subsidies are SPECIFICALLY what we out to be eliminating to cut spending. Seriously, folks, our fiscal troubles are bad, and getting worse because Congress has no ability to stop spending.

 

How do thugs like Jerry Nadler (D-irtbag) get elected?

Have we really sunk so far? From Madison, and Franklin, and Mason, and Jefferson and Washington to bottom feeders like THIS bag of dung?

Out of all the Democrats exploiting this tragedy, Nadler is leading the pack.

(CNY) — Today, following the shooting massacre of 20 children in a Connecticut school, President Obama said that “meaningful action” needed to be taken to prevent such tragedies from happening in the future.

But what “meaningful action” can Obama actually take, given Republican control of the House and Congress’ deeply felt fear of the politically mighty National Rifle Association? And politics aside, what new laws would actually solve or make a dent in the country’s crazed-gunman problem?

Rep. Jerry Nadler said thinks that the president has only one option.

“There’s only one meaningful action he can take, which is to take on the N.R.A., label them as the enablers of mass murderers they are, really push for strong gun-control legislation and call out those congressional leaders who don’t support it,” Nadler told me this afternoon.

“It is time to call out the N.R.A. as enablers of mass murder and start embarrassing people and saying, ‘Who do you stand with? The parents and children of this country or the potential mass murderers?’”

The fact is if there HAD been a couple of NRA members there they would have done their best to stop the killer, but Nadler does not give  a flip about facts. I suppose slandering people who value liberty and obey the law is a small price to pay for furthering his Statist agenda. Instead of looking gleefully at this as an opportunity to eradicate self-defense rights, why is Nadler not pushing for armed security in our schools? Could it be he cares far more about control than he does about protecting kids?

 

Congress FINALLY reaches deal that will address spending!

Final… Oh wait, my bad, they actually only voted to ban the word “lunatic” from federal law. For a minute there I bet you thought these worthless shit bags were actually going to do their freaking jobs!

As the nation staggers through hard times toward total ruin as a result of the toll taken on the economy by Big Government, it’s nice to see our rulers finally addressing the serious issues that threaten us:

The word “lunatic” will be stricken from federal law under legislation that passed the House on Wednesday and is headed to President Obama for his signature.

The Congressional action is the latest effort to remove language from federal law that has become outdated or is considered demeaning.

Words are especially “demeaning” when they hit too close to home.

Only one Rep voted against the measure.

The lone “no” vote was cast by Representative Louie Gohmert, Republican of Texas, who said in a statement that “not only should we not eliminate the word ‘lunatic’ from federal law when the most pressing issue of the day is saving our country from bankruptcy, we should use the word to describe the people who want to continue with business as usual in Washington.”

So, in 225 years, America has gone from Jefferson, Madison, Franklin, Washington, Mason, etc. to THIS! One man, ONE in the entire House gets it? And the Republicans have a big majority in the House! Dear God we are so screwed!

The Congressional action is the latest effort to remove language from federal law that has become outdated or is considered demeaning. Two years ago Congress took out references to “mental retardation.”

Priorities people! Where are our priorities?

Remember what Obama said about sequestered budget cuts during the last debate?

If you do not here it is, via Big Government

At Monday’s third presidential debate, President Obama pointedly promised that sequestered budget cuts that will affect defense spending “will not happen.” 

OBAMA: First of all, the sequester is not something that I’ve proposed. It is something that Congress has proposed. It will not happen.

Well, that seems pretty clear, or should I say transparent right? Not so fast

The next morning, in an off-the-record interview with the editors of the Des Moines Register, President Obama reversed course, taking credit for a sequester that he anticipates will be “in place.”:

OBAMA: “So when you combine the Bush tax cuts expiring, the sequester in place, the commitment of both myself and my opponent — at least Governor Romney claims that he wants to reduce the deficit — but we’re going to be in a position where I believe in the first six months we are going to solve that big piece of business.” 

Yes, he lies, and he is brazen about it. He lied about Romney’s auto bailout position during the same debate, he has been lying about Benghazi. Lie after lie after lie, enough is enough America, even Letterman knows Obama lied

Pelosi on ramming health care down our throats, we had to, those darned Republicans were being mean or something

This piece from The Daily Caller sums up Nancy Pelosi, and the Democratic Party perfectly

Pelosi defended her 2010 passage of health care reform, stating that the Democratic caucus was very diverse and blamed the Republicans for making it impossible for her to pass the legislation without steamrolling it through Congress. She went on to make the case that Obama and the Democrats have to win or health care reform and Medicare “as we know it” are in jeopardy.

Ah, so the Democratic caucus was “diverse” because every member wanted to force the bill through against the will of their constituents, but those Republicans, who were actually doing their jobs by listening to their constituents? They were the problem. Spoken like a true elitist with no respect for the Constitution, or the will of the people. Which, of course is EXACTLY what Pelosi, and her party is!
