Rep. Jim Moran represents everything that is wrong with Congress

Jim Moran, of Virginia is a case study in congressional fail. He has been in office far too long, holds the American people in contempt, voted for ObamaCare despite his constituents opposing it, and now, he is outraged that he will not get a pay raise! I guess corruption does not pay like it used to.

Via The Hill:

Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.), who sparked a firestorm for suggesting that members of Congress are “underpaid,” expressed disappointment on Thursday that the House did not consider his proposal to provide members with a housing stipend.

Moran said that the House should have allowed debate on his amendment to the 2015 legislative branch appropriations bill, which maintains the freeze on lawmaker pay that has been in place since 2010.

“If you’re not going to show respect for yourself as an institution, you can’t expect the public to show much respect for you either,” Moran said. “We deserve that respect. We ought to stand up for ourselves.”

Rank-and-file House members and senators receive an annual salary of $174,000. Moran submitted an amendment to the House Rules Committee earlier this week that would have created a $25-per-day housing stipend for members of Congress who live at least 50 miles outside Washington, D.C. It was not made in order, however.

Being a Congressman was never meant to be a full time job. The fact is Moran and his fellow representatives should be in DC only long enough to handle essential business, then they should go home to live and work among the people who elect them.

A public service from your “just a blogger” GatorDoug

Y’all, (the proper way to address a group of people), Know that Ted Cruz, and a few other Conservatives are fighting like Hell to derail Obamacare. Naturally, this has interrupted MSNBS host Chris “Crazy Legs” Matthews a great deal. Weasel Zippers has the sad, but all too predictable result, a Matthews meltdown, it is like a regular meltdown, only bigger and more pathetic. As a public service I, who am merely a “blogger”, will translate Matthews diatribe.

Via Mediaite:

Chris Matthews let loose Tuesday night with what he really thinks of Republican senator Ted Cruz, the face of the defund Obamacare movement. Matthews and Democratic congressman Jim Moran called him dangerous, with Matthews gong so far as to declare he is a threat to the entirety of the American political system. […]

Now, when Matthews says Cruz is dangerous, what he really means is that Cruz is Reaganesque, and that Matthews is deathly afraid of Cruz because Cruz, like Reagan has the ability to speak directly to the people, thus influencing the people to understand how bad Obamacare is. Matthews, being an elitist, naturally detests any and all who would oppose his Neo-Marxist ideology.

He recalled how Cruz’s political debut was his accusations about Chuck Hagel‘s extremist ties in a very “Joe McCarthy fashion,” calling Cruz “totally and utterly destructive” and dismissing the idea he’s educated a single person about the health care law.

Whenever a leftist like Matthews invokes the name McCarthy they are attempting to smear a Conservative who has an effective message. Do not allow yourself to be taken in by this hateful rhetoric. Remember this Leftists attack Conservatives not because they disagree with them, which they of course do, but because they FEAR them!

Moran said Cruz is “ignorant of the facts” and predicted he won’t be able to accomplish much after these “antics.” Matthews noticed how Cruz is “sneering” every time he talks about an issue, calling the Texas senator a “threat” to the American political system, and while he admitted using the word “terrorist” would be a little strong, he did leave it dangling over the conversation.

What Matthews and Moran, who is so crooked he has to screw his pants on are really doing here is attempting to further smear Cruz  by calling him ignorant and accusing Cruz of “antics”. How rich, Matthews, who engages in antics and hyperbole like no other throwing that charge at Ted Cruz. 

Look, all you really have to know about Matthews is that he looks like Newt Gingrich’s retarded little brother, and jabbers like an incoherent drunk on a bar stool at the diviest bar you can imagine. No, wait, that is not fair. An incoherent drunk makes more sense that Matthews does.

In short, Cruz scares the living Hell out of the Left, and the douche bags that make up the GOP establishment.

Your dirt bag of the day is Patrick Moran

Who is the son of Jim Moran, a Democratic Congressman from Virginia. Patrick has pleaded guilty to assaulting his girlfriend

Patrick B. Moran, 23, of Arlington County pleaded guilty to one count of simple assault, a misdemeanor. A D.C. Superior Court judge suspended a 90-day jail term and sentenced him to one year’s probation. Moran will also have to complete domestic-violence counseling and 50 hours of community service.

Domestic-violence counseling? How about we lock Patrick in  a cage with a Navy Seal of Green Beret? I think that is fitting for a scumbag that does this…

According to a police account of the Dec. 1 incident contained in court documents, an officer saw Moran grab a woman by the back of her head and slam it into a trash can about 1:23 a.m. in front of the Getaway nightclub in Columbia Heights.

Of course, the good Congressman is trying to cover for his son

A e-mailed statement from Kelly Hofmann, Moran’s girlfriend, that was circulated by his father’s office after the plea had been entered called the incident one that “has been blown out of proportion” and said she was hurt when one of her high heels gave out and she fell into a trash can.

Another statement released by a spokesman for the congressman (D-Va.) also called the incident an “accident.”

Battered women often lie, or cover for their abuser, but, this time police officers witnessed that assault. Maybe she is even being pressured to do so now? Frankly, the police report does not back up her story

Patrick Moran was initially charged with felony assault. Hofmann was found bleeding “heavily” from her nose, according to court records, and her nose and right eye were “extremely” swollen.

Of course, we should also consider Patrick Moran’s recent disgarce

Moran resigned from his post as field director for his father’s reelection campaign in October after a conservative activist released an undercover video of Moran discussing potential ways to commit voter fraud. Arlington police and Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II said they would investigate the incident, in which Moran was captured in the video suggesting that someone could use forged utility bills as proof of voter eligibility.

What a winner he is! More at The Other McCain

Michelle has a look at the past of Jim Moran too. Real classy bunch!


Aaron Worthing has some legal questions of interest


Remember that Democrats say that voter fraud is nonexistent as you watch this

Project Veritas has a new video out. In the video, Virginia Rep Jim Moran’s son Patrick advises on how to commit voter fraud

More at American Power, Patrick Moran has resigned amid the allegations. Of course, Democrats will ignore the evidence of voter fraud say that it is Project Veritas that is in wrong here for the undercover taping. They will rant about how voter ID laws are racist. They do these things because they know the voter fraud they claim is not an issue helps Democrats!

Smitty delivers a great public service

Smitty translates the Politicalese, A.K.A. Bullshit that politicians speak. In this case he makes the words of Jim Moran of Virginia plain to understand, and it is no easy task, given that Moran is a gasbag of enormous proportions.

‘Gentleman’ Jim can be hard to understand at times. This blog will offer a running translation into non-bureaucrat, peon English as a public service.

Moran Smitty
“I appreciate the work of the conferees, but I oppose this conference agreement, not out of concern for the tens of thousands of federal employees that I represent, Listen, boys and girls, you may flatter yourself that you’re running the show, but who maintains the servers? Who keeps the supplies stocked? Who does the staff work? Mah peeps, that’s who. And if you think you can jerk them about without serious, yet purely accidental, consequences, you’re living in some 100+ year old Constitutional fantasy story.
but out of concern for the welfare of the great nation we serve. Now I’m going to say ‘we serve’ for the sake of that quaint Constitutional fantasy record, but don’t neglect to apply the Beltway Inversion and understand that to mean ‘which serves us’, or it’s going to get really ugly.
We are blessed with the least corrupt, most effective, least discriminatory, most responsive federal workforce in the world. As before, any of you mung-heads that don’t know I mean the precise opposite is probably a 2010 Tea Party freshman who should sit down and shut up. Should you survive re-election, you will be assigned a Special Re-education Camp date, where you can be ‘read in’ on precisely why you don’t mess with the bureaucracy.
And yet, how do we repay them? We are requiring them to increase their pension contributions by 400%, with no increase in benefits. Some of you really haven’t understood history since LBJ, have you? We drive this bus, and the American people either offer a simple, obsequious ‘thank you’, or they go under the bus. The drivers don’t pay to ride; they’re drivers. What part of this reality escaped you idiots?
So we are sending them a signal: ‘Sorry, we don’t really appreciate what you’re doing. You’re expendable. It’s a signal that will not be lost on the recruits that we desperately need in the future. Do you punks really want to see a traffic jam? Do you? You know darned good and well that if you want to see a job after you’re run out of office (as will not happen to me, by the way) or if you want a job for your little drooling idiot offspring, you’d better back off right now.
Let alone the hundreds of thousands, really, of federal employees who could easily be making more in the private sector. Because you know that if we have to make any adjustments, reductions-in-force, office closures, down-sizings, etc., we’re coming after your knucklehead friends first. The economy is parked in the toilet. If you like the bus, you had better quit rocking it right now.
The whole country is going to pay a price for the signal that this bill sends. That’s why I think we should defeat it.” You sunny beaches may be capable of starting a war, but my people will show you how to be twice as fast and three times as loud in begging for an end to it. You want to pick on somebody in a different seat on this bus, go for the military. Leave the drivers alone.

Lunatic Leftist Congressmen Call For Unlimited Federal Debt

Democrat Congressmen Call For Unlimited Federal Debt; Say Limit Is ‘Danger’ To Country – CNS

A trio of House Democrats on Wednesday introduced a bill to eliminate the debt ceiling so that the Treasury Department would be able to borrow money without limit.

Rep. Jim Moran (D.-Va.), one of the co-sponsors of the proposal, said that imposing a legal limit on the national debt is a “danger” to the country.

“The debt limit is an unnecessary and counterproductive legislative hurdle that has proved to be both an ineffective means of controlling deficits and a danger to this country’s standing in the financial markets,” Moran said.

The debt limit “poses a serious, recurring threat to the full faith and credit of the United States of America,” Moran said. He called it a “legislative relic” that has been “weaponized” by Republicans for political reasons.

At a news conference introducing the bill, Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.), also a co-sponsor of the bill, said: “We’re here, ladies and gentlemen to abolish the debt ceiling.”

“This is a pretty simple issue, ladies and gentlemen,” Johson said. “There is no reason to have a debt ceiling at all. That’s why there is one other Western democracy with such a policy. You see, when Congress directs federal spending, it assumes responsibility for allowing the Treasury to what it needs to do to pay for it, period.”

Johnson said that last month’s political battle over increasing the debt limit “undermined the American people’s trust in its political leadership.” (Recent opinion polls give Congress an even lower favorability rating than President Obama.)

The Democrats’ bill has no chance of passing the Republican-controlled House.

The debt limit, first established by Congress in 1917, is the total amount of money that the United States government is authorized to borrow to meet its existing legal obligations.

According to the Congressional Research Service, the debt limit provides Congress with the strings to control the federal purse.

It also imposes fiscal accountability, compelling Congress and the president to take visible action (most recently, a very public battle) to allow further federal borrowing when the federal government spends more than it collects.

Along with Rep. Moran and Rep. Johnson, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) is also co-sponsoring the bill to abolish the debt limit.
