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

Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (I) Imbecile embarrasses herself on Cavuto

Johnson is my Representative, and a crook, who the morons that live in my district reelected even though she had just been exposed as a crook. Here on Cavuto, she can’t even answer a simple question. One big issue today is that politicians cannot give a simple, principled answer anymore. I guess they prefer looking like stammering, double-talking fools, to actually taking a stand!By the way, Cavuto should have not apologized.

 

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?

Jesse Jackson Jr. hospitalized again

I guess the Corrupted Assholitis came back

Stacy McCain has more, plus an important question about Democrat voters

Unfortunately, liberalism isn’t listed in the DSM-IV:

U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. is heading back to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. — and was reportedly en route Friday evening.
A source said the decision was made to have the the South Shore Democrat return to the famed clinic, where he spent four weeks this summer for bipolar depression. He had been staying at his home in Washington, D.C. since leaving Mayo.
A source who visited Jackson this week said, “Jesse wanted you to know he is finding it difficult to continue his treatment because the press is staking out his home and making access to his doctor, who is within a short walking distance from his home, incredibly hard.”
The source added that Jackson is trying “to stay focused and calm to enhance his treatment and is just following doctor’s orders.”

Jackson is a corrupt race pimp just like his father, but, I guess the brainwashed voters of the “D” party will vote for anything with that “D” by it!

Who’s crazier: The congressman suffering from bipolar depression, or the Illinois voters who don’t mind re-electing a genuine nutjob, so long as he’s got a “D” beside his name?

Yes, I know, I am being mean, and insensitive right? Wrong! I am tired of stupid voters who cannot bother to see what type of clowns politicians like Je$$e Jr really are.

Mayo Clinic diagnoses Jesse Jackson Jr. with Bipolar disorder

 

Wow. and I just thought he was a crooked asshole like his worthless race-pimping father! Of course, I suppose crooked assholes, and worthless race pimps can have Bipolar Disorder too, so…..

U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., a Chicago Democrat who took a hushed medical leave two months ago, is being treated for bipolar disorder, the Mayo Clinic announced Monday.

The Rochester, Minn.-based clinic specified his condition as Bipolar II, which is defined as periodic episodes of depression and hypomania, a less serious form of mania.

“Congressman Jackson is responding well to the treatment and regaining his strength,” the clinic said in a statement.

Bipolar II is a treatable condition that affects parts of the brain controlling emotion, thought and drive and is likely caused “by a complex set of genetic and environmental factors,” the clinic said. The statement also mentioned that Jackson underwent weight loss surgery in 2004 and said such a surgery can change how the body absorbs foods and medications, among other things.

In all seriousness, I am not mocking genuine mental disorders, not at all. I do hope he gets the help he needs to recover. then he can go back to being a, well, you know…………………

 

Video-Rep Louie Gohmert rips Janet Napolitano

Napolitano is dumber than a tree stump what a disgrace. She is the head of DHS? I would not trust her to order a hamburger without adult supervision. Why not answer the question? She is dodging, and everyone knows it, including Rep John Conyers, he is the one that you hear calling for “regular order” in an effort to bail Secretary “DUH” out.

Why are Liberal women so obsessed with their vaginas?

I always thought women were PEOPLE, not any certain body part, or parts. Isn’t that what Feminists are supposed to believe? So why do so many Feminist women seem so eager to reduce themselves to a vagina? I’m a Man has similar questions

Was it Tourette’s Syndrome Awareness Day at the Michigan State House?  Of course not!  It was just another friendly abortion debate pitting evil Republicans against vaginas everywhere.

Rep. Lisa Brown, a Democrat from suburban Detroit, was silenced after Republicans who control the chamber said she violated decorum. While speaking Wednesday against a bill requiring doctors to ensure women aren’t coerced into ending their pregnancies, Brown told Republicans, “I’m flattered you’re all so concerned about my vagina. But no means no.” Continue reading here…

Rep. Barb Byrum was also barred from speaking Friday after violating the same rules of decorum by uttering the word “vasectomies” when asked to step away from the microphone.

While I find their speaking bans a little ridiculous, I wonder about the intent behind their words.  Does Rep. Brown think anyone cares about her vagina?  Does she believe the abortion debate is about controlling women?  Does Rep. Byrum equate vasectomy coverage to murdering a child?  Really?

I suppose it boils down to this, when you cannot defend abortion on demand with medical facts, or reason, you must go to the emotionalistic rhetoric well huh?

Out Barney Frank! In Another Drunken Kennedy!

Yes, I know, that was NOT civil was it. I am sure the Left will be aghast that I darted question the sobriety for the family that could be the poster children for A.A.

Oh well, Alesiter is not happy either

Joseph P. Kennedy the III is planning to run for Barney Frank’s seat in congress.

Don’t these scumbags ever take a generation off?

Does this kid have a single qualification other than his last name?

Instapundit? He is not too pleased either

JUST WHAT AMERICA NEEDS: ANOTHER KENNEDY! Joe K III to run for Barney Frank’s seat. “Joseph P. Kennedy III, the son of former U.S. Rep. Joseph Kennedy, is launching an exploratory committee in preparation for a likely run for the seat recently vacated by U.S. Rep. Barney Frank.”

Really? This is the best Massachusetts can do?

UPDATE: A reader emails: “Is it the best Massachusetts can do? Perhaps the question relates to yesterday’s post about Boston being the drunkest city in the country. I am uncertain about which is cause and which is effect.” Heh.

Of course, if I had to live in Taxachusetts, I might indulge a lot too! And yes I could have been a whole lot uncivil couldn’t I? See despite the fact that Barney Frank AND the Kennedys were integral parts of the post, I never used the word sucks once!

Allen West apologize to Debbie Wasserman Shrieks? NAW!

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, official photo portr...

Nice Deb has the video

West is right, he understands that the “outrage” over his harsh words for the DNC head is manufactured from absolute BS! The Left has a long and ugly history of launching vile personal attacks, then playing the victim/gender/race card when their intended victim stands up for themselves. Or, in this case they have chosen to play an even more absurd card. The Sexual harassment Card!

Several House Democratic women on Wednesday called on Rep. Allen West to apologize to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz for his e-mail that called her “vile,” “despicable” and “not a Lady.”

The lawmakers said they were sending a letter to House GOP leadership, asking them to condemn the e-mail from the freshman Florida Republican. The group of five House Democrats said West’s e-mail was indicative of a larger problem – both inside Congress and out – of gender discrimination in the workplace.

“For his own good, they ought to take him into the woodshed and say, ‘if you want to survive in this work environment, you’ve got to keep your word, you’ve got to be cordial and congenial and civil even when you’re disagreeing,” said Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) “It makes for a very hard career otherwise.”

“Sticks and stones will not break Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz’s bones, and neither will Congressman West’s Blackberry,” added Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) who charged that in other workplaces, West would be hit with a sexual harassment claim.

Oh boy! How magical is this? west defends himself from a NOTED bomb thrower, and he is the bad guy? I wonder where these Women were when Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, Michelle Malkin, Laura Ingraham  were attacked in much more explicit and overtly sexual fashions? Besides Michelle Malkin is sticking up for West!

Via Gateway Pundit! I am LOVING this!

After Rep. Allen West left the House floor today, lying leftist hack Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz attacked him and lied about the Republican plan. A disgruntled Allen West sent out this response to the vile DNC chair.
Via the Politico:

Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional ,and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!

I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.

You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!

Charlie Rangel race baits, Minorities hardest hit

Charles B. Rangel

Charles Rangel (C) Corrupt is saying to anyone stupid enough to listen that budget cuts are racist or something

(The Hill) — Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) said Thursday morning that government spending cuts will end up hurting African Americans disproportionately.

In comments on the House floor, Rangel warned blacks would be disproportionately hurt because many African Americans have sought work in the public sector for reasons related to job security.

“And so many African-Americans, for reasons that I do not have to go into, have sought public service as a way of life because of the security that’s involved in it,” Rangel said on the House floor. “And so, when we talk about cutting the budget and cutting the services that are provided, we’re talking about a larger number of minorities that would be losing their jobs as a result of budget cutting.”

When will Blacks stop buying the loads of BS that race pimps like Rangel constantly dish out? I think it is safe to say that more and more Blacks are abandoning the victim pimping the Democrats engage in. And nothing could be better for them than to abandon the Democratic ranks in droves.

Allen West to Holder: Hit the road loser

Or words to that general affect

During an appearance on the Steve Gill Show, U.S. Rep. Allen West said the roads that appear to lead to those responsible for the botched program that was supposed to trace guns to high-ranking drug lords are alarming.

“This is just another sad chapter in the Eric Holder book of ineptness and incompetence,” West said. “Eric Holder needs to be brought before an investigative committee and if those charges are warranted he needs to be held accountable.

“At least the president needs to realize that Eric Holder needs to be removed from the Department of Justice … or else it appears President Obama is complicit and in approval of the actions of his attorney general,” he said.

There is stupid, THEN, there is

Sheila Jackson Lee. who Bob roasts today at Camp of the Saints

If you like your cretinism served with a hearty helping of plain, unadulterated malice, Mzzz. Lee is your man, er, womyn [actually, she could be a tranny - she kind of looks like someone I saw on Hookers At The Point]. She is the Poster Bink for Marxism: vile and disgusting in her tactics, unquestioning in her hatred of all things American, corrupt as the day is long, and a pond scum sucking creature proud of her status as a first-class ignoramus. [I know, I know: I'm holding back, but, hey, this is a family show]

At Representative Peter King’s hearing on Muslim radicals [I know: I repeat myself, but that's what he calls it], Mzzzz. Lee had this to say:

“Are you familiar with the Christian militants?” she asked former New York Dept. of Correctional Services official Patrick Dunleavy. “Can one might say that they might possibly want to undermine this country because right now the right for women to choose is a Constitutional right but people disagree with it but here is an individual trying to undermine the protections that are given to women? Would you suggest that might be compared to trying to undermine this country? That’s a possibility, is it not?”

Good Freaking Grief! Can she be serious? Comparing pro-life Christians with Jihadists? Moral retardation at its worst!

POH Diaries earns coveted Blog of the Month honor

Paul Ryan (politician)

Image via Wikipedia

Great work being done at POH Diaries, work like this

The House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly not to increase the debt limit. 318-97 was the final tally with 82 Democrats breaking ranks and helping the GOP vote it down.

From CNN:

The question of how to control the explosive growth in popular entitlements may be the most critical question in the current debate over Washington’s fiscal health. Leaders from both parties agree that some kind of change is necessary in Medicare in particular, but differ sharply on scope and shape.

Exactly. Democrats want more of the same. Spending the country into oblivion while avoiding the hard choices that could, could threaten their power. Republicans, for the most part, are listening to the people who put them in power and are taking serious steps to contain out of control spending. They still need a little nudging into Paul Ryan’s direction on Medicare, but, baby steps, I guess.

Wait did that post say HAMMER TIME? I wonder if this dance is going on over at POH?

GOP Lawmaker Michelle Litjens Speaks Out After Death Threat From Wisconsin Dem Rep (Video) | The Gateway Pundit

Ah, the peaceful vitriol of the super tolerant Left H/T Gateway Pundit

 

Yet one more reason to love Allen West!

He irritates the sensitivities of the Congressional Black Caucus Via Bluegrass Pundit

(The Hill)- Still, some are “leery” of West, according to a CBC member who requested anonymity.

West raised some eyebrows in a CBC meeting soon after the assassination attempt of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.).

After members expressed concern for their safety, West, a two-decade plus Army veteran, said members should consider carrying a concealed weapon.

In an interview with The Hill this week, West said, “They were talking about getting detailed security and I said, ‘Well you just look in your state as far as getting a concealed weapons licensing,’ which is something that I have. I think personal protection starts with yourself, but you just coordinate with local law enforcement to make sure you have collateral security at your events.”

CBC member Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.) said West’s suggestion didn’t go over well, adding it was “frowned” on by other lawmakers.

Man how I wish I had been there to see their faces! I would have cherished that memory forever!

And here come the tragedy pimps to exploit Rep. Giffords

The Left is truly all about power and control. Liberty is a thing they have no use, for particularly if allows their political opponents to speak and argue against Leftism. So, you just knew, didn’t you, that they would use the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to try and implement laws aimed at restricting our liberty?

First take a gander at what Democrat Robert Brady is proposing

Rep. Robert Brady (D-Pa.) reportedly plans to introduce legislation that would make it a federal crime to use language or symbols that could be perceived as threatening or inciting violence against a federal official or member of Congress.

Brady told CNN that he wants federal lawmakers and officials to have the same protections against threat currently provided to the president. His call comes one day after Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) was shot, along with 19 other people, at a public event in Tucson. A suspect is currently in custody.

“The president is a federal official,” Brady told CNN in a telephone interview. “You can’t do it to him; you should not be able to do it to a congressman, senator or federal judge.”

The key language, of course being “perceived as” threatening or “inciting violence against”. We all well know that pretty much anytime anyone dares to oppose a Liberal bill, or politician, they are accused of inciting violence. Brady, and knee-jerk power mongers like him could use such a bill to punish, or threaten into silence any politicalm opposition.

The second tragedy pimp would be Carolyn McCarthy, an avid enemy of your right to own guns. It sure did not take her long to use events in Arizona to try and erase your right to self-defense.

“My staff is working on looking at the different legislation fixes that we might be able to do and we might be able to introduce as early as tomorrow,” McCarthy told POLITICO in a Sunday afternoon phone interview.

Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ) said he’s preparing to introduce a similar bill in the Senate.

“The only reason to have 33 bullets loaded in a handgun is to kill a lot of people very quickly,” Lautenberg said in a statement. “These high-capacity clips simply should not be on the market.“

Gun control activists said it was time to reform weapons laws in the United States almost immediately after a gunman killed six and injured 14 more, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, in Arizona on Saturday.

Many said that people with a history of mental instability, like the alleged shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, should not be able to buy a gun — and no one should be able to buy stockpiles of the ammunition allegedly used by the 22-year-old assailant.

Again, you can darned near see how  elated these Democrats are to use this tragedy to further the control over us all.

Did you know there is a Congressiona Progressive Caucus?

Oh there is, and, apparently, when they are not burning Old Glory, or smoking pot, they make demands of the president.

Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.) thinks working with Republicans is fruitless. Liberals haven’t received the message of November 2, 2010.

The Hill reported:

 

The Ohio liberal’s comments would seem to differ from a leader of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, who warned President Obama against cutting deals with newly-empowered House Republicans on taxes, next year’s budget, and other issues.

“You know, he won. McCain didn’t. I don’t know why he forgot that,” said Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.), co-chairwoman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, during a separate appearance on MSNBC.

 

Another Progressive that thinks Obama should go farther Left! Love it!
