Democrats use fear-mongering in last ditch effort to hold majority

Democrats have gotten a large portion of their legislative and regulatory agenda enacted, but Americans seem greatly displeased with the results. Now, Democrat leadership is using FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt) as a tool in the November 2014 elections to hold on to their slim and ineffectual majority in the U.S. Senate.

Former House Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi appeared on “Real Time with Bill Maher” and made the case that only Democrats could save the human race… or something.

Rep. Pelosi told Maher that “It would be very important for the Democrats to retain control of the Senate” because  “civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if the Republicans win the Senate.”

No fear-mongering there…

Pelosi managed to lead the Democrats into a crushing defeat in the House after pushing legislation that almost no one actually wanted and even fewer appreciate now that Obamacare has been enacted.

Having the wicked witch of the West tell a 100% liberal audience that Republicans would end society is yelling into an echo-chamber – only Maher’s uninformed, non-critical-thinking left-wing extremist viewership would even accept her statements as anything but political rhetoric.

The current Democrat-led Senate has accomplished very little under Sen. Harry Reid’s leadership. Mainly due to Reid’s inability to aptly push flawed progressive legislation while Obama’s left-wing extremist initiatives drive more families into economic ruin and U.S. companies to send their assets overseas.

The majority of the bills passed by the Senate have been symbolic at best and ridiculous at worst. The few that have been considerable were bills that met with little debate and were obviously necessary. The rest… resolutions to name this building after that guy or have a holiday named after that other guy. Reid’s legacy will be that he was able to enact less useful legislation than any previous Senate leader in history.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has been unable to push difficult bills through the Senate even though his party holds the majority. Perhaps all the time Reid is spending getting activist liberal judges on the appellate courts would be better spent getting the work of the people done.

The Senate was always envisioned to be a more deliberative body. More discussion, more debate – more… American. Harry Reid is unable to lead a body of this type. Instead, he leads by iron hand or not at all. Perhaps the latter is best for our nation.

Failing to bring a useful amount of legislation to the floor, unable to create a co-operative government and incapable of heading a productive Senate, Harry Reid is the problem that President Obama often points to. The reason Washington is unable to “do anything” is because Sen. Reid likes it that way.

Perhaps America needs new Senate leadership to end the grid-lock about which the President so often complains.

 

Nancy Pelosi Deserves the Margaret Sanger Award

Alveda King: Nancy Pelosi Deserves the Margaret Sanger Award for Trampling on Human Rights; Martin Luther King, Jr. Would Reject it Today

ATLANTA, Feb. 4, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ — Dr. Alveda King, director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, reacted today to the announcement that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi will receive Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award.

“It’s true that Congresswoman Pelosi deserves Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award — almost no one has done more to promote the killing of innocent babies in the womb than she has,” noted Dr. King. “If Mrs. Pelosi wants finally to take her role as a public servant seriously, though, she will reject the award named after a racist woman who had no problem speaking to a Ku Klux Klan meeting.”

The Sanger Award has been given annually by Planned Parenthood since 1966, when the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., Alveda King’s uncle, was named, but did not personally accept one of the first four citations.

“It’s ironic that Planned Parenthood would extend to my uncle, Martin Luther King, Jr., an award for his human rights work,” Dr. King continued. “I can’t think of an organization that has done more to trample upon human rights than Planned Parenthood.”

“Of course, in 1966, Planned Parenthood did not advocate for abortion and its racist roots were not well known,” added Dr. King. “Knowing what we know now and 56 million dead children later, I’m confident that the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., a man who gave his life defending others’ rights to life and liberty, would reject any association with Planned Parenthood.”

Why the government shutdown is the worst idea ever

Never, ever shut down the federal government again.

– President Bill Clinton, 1996 State of the Union Address

 

As everyone knows, on October 1st at midnight, the federal government shut down for the first time in 17 years. This event has had and will have lasting, serious, negative consequences for the entire country, and even moreso for the two political parties. This article will explain why, looking from a conservative Republican perspective, shutting down the federal government is the worst idea possible for the GOP, the conservative movement, and the country that my fellow conservatives claim to care about first and foremost. In short, the shutdown is bad policy AND bad politics.

Why it’s bad politics for the GOP and conservatives

Contrary to what many of my fellow conservatives think, nothing good can come out of this conundrum for conservatives or for the Republican Party (regardless of whatever future you wish for that party). This is a battle we simply cannot win, and no amount of throwing the RINO epithet at everyone who disagrees with you will change that fact.

Some have pointed out to polls supposedly showing Barack Obama’s approval ratings as being at 40% or lower, and disapproval ratings going over 50%. Even if these polls are scientific and accurate – and depending on who commissioned them, they might not be – these people completely ignore the fact that Congressional Republicans and the Tea Party have even lower approval ratings in the eyes of the American people.

According to polls commissioned by Fox News – hardly a liberal outlet – Congressional Republicans had only a 23% approval rating in June and August, with disapproval ratings of 67% and 66%, respectively. That means that fully TWO THIRDS of the American public view Congressional Republicans – especially their conservative wing – negatively.

By contrast, Congressional Democrats’ approval ratings, while still dismal, were better than Republicans': 32% approval and 60% disapproval in both June and August.

Moreover, Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell has the worst ratings of any major party leader in America today: 22% approval, 42% disapproval in October.  John Boehner has 27% approval and 51% disapproval ratings (in April, he had 31% approval and only 41% disapproval). Even Harry Reid now does better at 27% approval and 43% disapproval) in the same month. Nancy Pelosi is at 35% approval, 47% disapproval (whereas in April, she was at 31% approval and 48% disapproval, so her image has improved since then).

Barack Obama, meanwhile, while having seen his approval ratings slump somewhat, still enjoys much higher popularity than anyone in Congress. His approval ratings, according to various polls, average at 45%, and range from a low end of 40% (Fox News, 54% disapproval) to a high end of 47% approval and the same amount disapproving.

So no matter what poll you take, Barack Obama, while hardly at the peak of his popularity, is STILL seen far more favorably than anyone in Congress, ESPECIALLY Congressional Republicans, ESPECIALLY their conservative wing.

It is inevitable that this government shutdown will take a heavy toll on the Tea Party’s, the conservative movement’s, and the GOP’s image in the American public’s eyes, and it may well prevent Republicans from retaking the Senate and the White House in 2014 and 2016. Even before the shutdown began, polls were warning that more Americans would blame the GOP than Barack Obama for the shutdown. Now, after it has happened, the veteran political analyst Charlie Cook warns us that the shutdown could cost the GOP future elections.

Despite the garbage that the Tea Party and its allies on talk radio like Rush Limbaugh probably feed you, the reality is that the absolute majority of Americans wants moderate policies from the GOP and wants both parties – including Republicans – to compromise. Gallup has demonstrated this repeatedly over the last several years, over and over again, including here, here, here, here,  here, here, and most recently here. In fact, as the shutdown drew closer, Americans’ desire to see the two parties compromise increased.

According to that most recent poll, published just a week before the shutdown, 53% of all Americans (an absolute majority), as well as 56% of moderates, 65% of liberals, 55% of indies, 61% of Democrats, and even a plurality of conservatives (42%) said, just a week before the shutdown, that it was more important to compromise and avert the shutdown than to “stick to principles.” Just 25% of all Americans, and only a third of conservatives, said it’s more important to “stick to principles.”

The two groups most hostile to compromise were Republicans (only 38% supported it) and Tea Partiers (39%). 36% of Republicans and 40% of Tea Partiers said it’s better to “stick to principles” even if it means shutting the federal government down.

This fact is not lost on the American people; by far their biggest criticism of the GOP is that it is “unwilling to compromise.” This is the biggest criticism levied at the GOP by Dems, independents, and even Republicans themselves.

The current government shutdown will only aggravate this problem. The longer it continues, the heavier the toll on the GOP’s and the conservative movement’s image will be.

Contrary to what the Tea Party and the likes of Rush Limbaugh tell you, the GOP is not “Dem lite” or “not conservative enough” and does not want to “surrender” on Obamacare. The GOP is, in fact, criticized by American voters, including a plurality of Republicans, for being too unwilling to compromise. And compromise is not nearly the same thing as surrender – under a compromise, EVERYONE has to swallow unpalatable stuff, Republicans as well as Democrats.

The biggest damage will be in the eyes of moderates, women, youngsters, and minorities – the very voters the GOP will need to win future elections, or to even stay relevant as a party.

Why it’s a bad policy

The shutdown is not only bad politics, it’s bad policy too. The GOP’s objective, as we all know, is to get rid of, or defund, Obamacare. However, that – or any other meaningful policy change – CANNOT come about while Obama is still in office and controls the Senate. Republicans simply CANNOT govern the country from one half of Congress – as the astute Charles Krauthammer, Brent Bozell’s MRC’s latest award recipient, has rightly remarked in a column warning Republicans against the shutdown.

To defund Obamacare, Republicans can do only two things: either shut the entire government down, as they have done, or somehow convince Senate Democrats to pass, and President Obama to sign, a bill defunding Obamacare.

As Krauthammer has warned in his seminal column, there is NO WAY IN HELL Obama will sign into law a bill defunding, or delaying the implementation of, his singular legislative “accomplishment” – the Dems had been waiting for over 50 years to check this item on “FDR’s Unfinished Business List”, as Ann Coulter calls it.

Obama will never agree to anything that defunds his sole legislative “achievement”, the sine qua non of a liberal welfare state, liberals’ Holy Grail. Nor will Senate Democrats, marching in lockstep with Harry Reid, vote for defunding or otherwise gutting Obamacare.

And short of them agreeing to the impossible, the only way to defund Obamacare is to shut the federal government down completely.

Republicans have already tried this, in a way. In 1995, under Newt Gingrich’s leadership, they offered President Clinton a budget funding parts of, but not all, of the federal government; cutting spending faster than he was willing to accept. When Clinton said no, Republicans shut the federal government down – and that killed their chances of winning in 1996. Eventually, Republicans had to agree to a budget on terms not much different from what Clinton offered before the shutdown.

So no, there is no way Republicans can win this shutdown battle – or to defund Obamacare while Obama is still in office.

And let’s use some common sense. Does ANYONE really believe that Republicans can undo ANY meaningful Obama policy – ANY significant part of Obama’s “legacy” – while he’s still in office, wielding a veto pen, a bully pulpit, and a 55-seat Senate majority?

Margaret Thatcher famously said “first you win the argument, then you win the vote.” What she forgot to add is “and only then can you make policy.” Thatcher would’ve never been able to make any policy changes had her party not won a clear majority in the Commons. And that, in turn, would’ve never happened if she had led her party to the right fringe of British politics, alienating the vital center.

Republicans first need to convince a clear majority of Americans that Obamacare still can and should be repealed, then win back the Senate and the White House, and ONLY THEN can they make any policy changes, like repealing Obamacare.

So the shutdown, however it ends, will CLEARLY fail to achieve the GOP’s objective: defunding Obamacare.

The damage to the military

In addition to the damage the shutdown will do to the GOP’s and conservatives’ public image, it will also wreak havoc on the US military, adding greatly to the damage being done by the sequester.

A government shutdown means that eventually, when the money runs out from previous years’ approps, there will be nothing to pay the troops with, no money for their and veterans’ care, and no money for current training and equipment maintenance, operations (like protecting the skies over the US), and the development and acquisition of new equipment, nor to pay DOD civilian employees (the majority of whom are not pencil-pushers but real hard workers, like mechanics at military depots).

Why shut the government down?

The ancient Chinese strategist Sun Tzu advised against fighting on ground, or at a time, disadvantageous to you, or when the enemy is too strong. He further wisely counseled (The Art of War, ch. 12, v. 17):

“Move not unless you see an advantage; use not your troops unless there is something to be gained; fight not unless the position is critical.”

So how did America get into this mess in the first place? If the shutdown won’t achieve any conservative policy objective and will only do damage, why was this stand-off started?

Because the fringe of the GOP, including the Tea Party, which views any compromise as betrayal and anything other than scorched-Earth tactics as surrender, demanded that Republicans shut the government down over Obamacare. And most Republicans in Congress, scared to death of a Tea Party primary challenge, listened to the Tea Party and followed suit – thus driving America over the cliff.

Most House Republicans and many GOP Senators, including Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul, come from single-party GOP monopolies where most people are hardline conservatives who see any compromise as treason. These politicians live in single-party conservative cocoons and are thus totally detached from reality and out-of-touch with most Americans (as is the Tea Party itself). Just check the PVI ratings of Raul Labrador’s district (ID-1) and of the states of Texas, Utah, and Kentucky. Their districts and states are no more representative of America than Nancy Pelosi’s SF district.

Thus, they have no incentive to compromise, and far more to fear from a Tea Party primary challenger than a general election Democratic opponent. So they continue pushing the country to the brink, as the Tea Party demands, the consequences be damned.

Sadly, they may well take the GOP, and not just the country, over the cliff with them.

Poor Reid can’t handle Ted Cruz

Harry Reid is bemoaning the fact that Ted Cruz is not willing to play ball according to the (Democrat) rules on the floor. Reid calls Cruz a schoolyard bully, and points out that since he’s on the losing end, Cruz he should stop trying to force debate outside of standard order of business. In simple English, Reid is upset that Cruz is doing his job for his constituents, and refusing to allow the Democrats to push through a budget without legitimate debate, as opposed to the nonsense that fits in standard rules of order – you know, the kind of thing that lead us to the infamous Pelosi statement, “you’ve got to pass it to know what’s in it.”

Armed Federal Agents To Impose Obamacare on States

 Il Duce ObamaI just read a story that made my skin crawl.  Barack Obama has declared that the federal government will send federal agents into states to take over their insurance industry if they don’t surrender to Obamacare and set up the exchanges demanded by the regime.  Obamacare was passed in 2009 using bribery and arm twisting, topped off by a complete perversion of the legislative process.  It was opposed by a huge majority of We the People and reconciliation was used in a total disregard for the normal legislative process. This action led to the TEA Party uprising in 2010 that saw Republicans sweeping elections across the nation.

Now Obama brazenly stands up there and says that We the People have absolutely no voice in how we attend to our own health care.  This is bold, in your face, tyranny.  This is treason!!! Obama and his cadre of Marxists have once again thrown the Constitution out the window and said “I demand this…..!!!!!” or “I will by-pass Congress and do as I wish”.  Now he has decided to by-pass the state governments and the very voice of the people.  Is this not the definition of a dictatorship?

We either live by the Constitution or we live by the dictates of Der Fuhrer and his band of cutthitler4hroats.  The sad fact is that the ”leadership” of both political parties, the “ruling elite”, have joined forces with Obama to subjugate the population.  We now find “universal firearm registration” becoming much more acceptable to the Republican Party establishment, no surprise there.  All the noise about the assault weapons ban was a smoke screen for universal registration.  As soon as they know where all the weapons are they don’t need to ban them, they can just come out and confiscate them.  This is tyranny!!

Barack Obama has declared that he will dictate how we obtain and pay for our own health care, and he will send his armed agents to enforce it.  Any guess as to where a lot of the DHS purchases will be going???  The 10th Amendment doesn’t mean any more to these people than does the Dept Homeland Security Logo2nd Amendment.  He will send his Gestapo agents into each state and just take over the industry, he will “nationalize” the insurance industry.

Anyone who opposes this dictator will be dealt with by “federales”.  In 2010, Oklahoma voters rejected Obamacare in a 70%-30% vote.  Obama says what we want doesn’t matter and that he will impose his will on us by using armed federal agents to insure compliance.

This is not a battle between Democrat and Republican; it is a battle between Good and Evil, between We the republican logoPeople and a tyrannical government.  They are already giving massive amounts of military hardware to city and state law enforcement agencies.  Some sheriffs and policeDemomcrat Logo chiefs have said they will stand with Obama but many have said they will stand with We People.

The few people in Congress who speak up for the Constitution are pilloried by people on both sides of the political “aisle”.  Personally, I don’t see an aisle between the parties.  The federal government, in the name of Der Fuhrer Barack Obama, has announced its decision to subjugate its citizens.  They no longer make any pretense of “looking out for our best interests” and have gone right to threatening to sending armed agents to impose their will on what is supposed to be a free people.

Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, and Benito Mussolini did this very thing when they seized control of their nations.  Anyone who refusedStalin Bans Guns to comply with the dictator was either bribed or intimidated into submission, or replaced (read that: shot).  As of now we have come to the point of “weBenito Mussolini refuse and they replace”.  How long before they step in somewhere else?  The federal government has been far too involved in our everyday lives for years.  Now that a majority has bucked up and said “whoa Hoss!!”, Obama and his cutthroats are going to just send in their Gestapo agents to enforce the dictate.

The question is, what are the states going to do????  Are the governors and other elected officers of these states going to accede to the demands of the dictatorship or are they going to stand up for the Constitution?  Are they going to honor their oath of office and their pledge to We the People???

Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak has said he does not have the authority to enforce federal laws and will not do so.  What will Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin and the Republican controlled legislature do??? Will they step up and use state Mary Fallinlaw enforcement to prevent this act of treason or will they roll over and give in???  If they will surrender our 9th and 10th Amendment rights today what happens when the “federales” get finished with the 2nd Amendment?

If Congress, both political parties, and the governors of the threatened states, allow Obama to get away with such a blatant act of tyranny where will it stop??  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know what happens when a small group of people can use force to impose their will on the majority of the population.

And what about those states not directly affected by this?  Do you think this doesn’t affect you?  I remember a quote from Pastor Martin Niemoller  in which he mentioned all the times people were trampled on by the Nazi government and he said nothing because it wasn’t him. Then they got to him and he was alone.  We all must stand together now or there won’t be any standing together later because many of us will be gone.

Now is the time for the governors to get together and create a plan of action against this blatant tyranny.  Many sheriffs have said they will stick with We the People, and We the People will stick by their sides.  The time for party politics is gone.  This is about the liberty of the citizens of the United States of America.  The noose is tightening around our necks and the ruling political class is tightening it as fast as they can because they see the citizens waking up. They see citizens beginning to make serious preparations for an all-out assault on our freedom by a dictatorial oligarchy in Washington, D. C. (De Cesspool) and they are moving as fast as they can to head off any ability of said citizens to oppose them.Bible, flag, guns, Our rights

The people are mobilizing to fight off the activities of a government overstepping its Constitutional bounds while most of our elected officials, in both political parties, band together to remove our only means of protection, the 2nd Amendment.

This action bConstitutiony the regime will abolish the 9th and 10th Amendments; universal firearm registration will abolish the 2nd Amendment.  The 4th Amendment against illegal search and seizure had been trampled to death numerous times in the last few years.  Our Republic is on the verge of oblivion and dictatorship is on the horizon.  Obama, Boehner, McConnell, Reid, Pelosi, McCain, Graham, Cantor, Schumer, and the rest are not going to just give up when they are a whisker away from the absolute control they have been seeking.  Their behind-the-scenes handlers won’t allow it either.  The window for a peaceful resolution is rapidly closing.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Nancy Pelosi, “Deems” Herself Minority Leader: We are Now Venezuela

Well, how wonderful of Ole’ Nan!!!   How arrogant of Ole’ Nan!!!  She announced that “by the will of the caucus”, by “ACCLAMATION of the caucus”, she will stay on as a reluctant but willing minority leader in the House of Representatives.  She “deemed” herself Minority Leader.    How NICE of her!!  How Chavez of her!!!  After the 2010 election she at least went through the appearance of a vote when Heath Schuler ran against her to give the “Blue Dog Democrats” cover.  She doesn’t need the Blue Dogs any longer, nor do they feel the need to pretend to be with We the People, so she just tosses them by the wayside.  Now she just “deems” herself perpetual ruler of the caucus.  Steny Hoyer, you will never be anything more than Ole Nan’s footstool, lapdog, errand boy.  Isn’t this how dictators behave?  Don’t they just “deem” their agenda to be the “will of the governed”?  The same Harry Reid who said just before the election that Romney’s agenda, should he win, was “DOA” in the Senate, now speaks of “bi-partisanship and cooperation”?  How stupid does someone have to be to not see what is happening?  Barack Obama now goes to the United Nations and offers the United States as subservient of their New World Order, and wants them to run the gun control treaty back by us.  Obama also suddenly has a trip to Moscow scheduled.  He now has “more flexibility”.  No one can be blind any longer, NO ONE!!! 

The dictatorship is in place, and what do we get from McConnell, Boehner, and the rest of the Republican Party???  They grovel at the feet of tyrants and blame the TEA Party, We the People, for their defeat.  Back in 2010 the same TEA Party that was “THE” factor in the Republican landslide was dismissed as “a minor part” of the victory.  Republicans won in spite of distancing themselves from the true patriots in this nation.  The ever senile John McCain and his left wing buddy Lindsey Graham now come out talking tough about “investigations” of Benghazi.  Give me a break!!!!  More posturing for the cameras, just as in the Fast and Furious hearings I assume?

Boehner and the rest of the establishment, including the inside-the-beltway “conservative media” Peggy Noonan, Bill Kristol, Karl (Marx) Rove, among others, grovel at the feet of these dictators.  Instead of dismissing conservatives this time, Republicans and their media talking heads now blame the very people they claim to represent for the defeat of Republican liberalism. “Conservatives are the problem” is the excuse they use to explain a pathetic campaign by a pathetic candidate.  Six million conservatives did not vote. I think that is the wrong approach but I understand why they did not vote for Romney.

I have been writing about this for almost 3 years and nothing has changed for the better.  The Republican Party moves left as fast as the Democrat Party.  McConnell and Boehner even groveled when they won in 2010, just not quite so blatantly.  They sat around and whined that they only had “one half of one third of government” so they couldn’t really accomplish anything.  Now they can’t do anything because Obama got reelected and they “must compromise”.  How convenient!!!

The Republican establishment will never offer us another Reagan.  They lost that one and have been working hard ever since to insure they can keep their “baby brother” status.  They want to play golf and posture for the cameras without really doing anything. 

Boehner now speaks of “tax reform”.  Every time I hear a Republican talk of reforming taxes my taxes go up, and I do not belong to the wealthy class by a long stretch.  They have no desire to fulfill the wishes of We the People, but rather their own personal power, prestige, and wealth.  The current Republican Party and their supporting cast in the media are only interested in having a seat in the back of Obama’s Chavez Express.  They want face time on television, people wanting to write books about them, and the prestige of being “the honorable” (I don’t address them that way) Senator/Congressman Hedgehog.

Romney was a more pathetic candidate than McCain and hired the very same consultants to run the very same campaign.  The same “go along to get along” attitude that got us into this mess isn’t going to get us out of it.  Not interested in any prime farm land south of New Orleans, thanks!!!  Republicans have not yet realized that reaching across the aisle only results in a bloody stump coming back, and tax paying citizens getting the shaft.  Or is it that they know but just don’t care because it doesn’t affect them in a negative fashion?

All of you “let’s give the Republicans another chance” folks might want to re-evaluate your position.  Just as Chavez took control in Venezuela with a compliant “opposition party”, Obama is taking control of the United States with a compliant “opposition party” that really isn’t in opposition. The word complicit seems to fit the Republican Party more than the word opposition.

Vladimir Lenin, Adolph Hitler, Fidel Castro, Mao Tse Tung, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, and Hugo Chavez didn’t do their despotism alone.  All of them had cronies who helped, and in many cases were labeled the “opposition” when they were truly complicit.  As I have been saying for the last three years, we have a despotic political party and a party who is willing to surrender anything and everything as long as they are allowed at the trough with the despots. 

We the People of the United States are merely pawns in a power play that will end in poverty and slavery for all but the wealthiest of Americans.  The very poor who support the endless handouts will find out, as have others in the past, that they will never benefit from the policies that promise them everything yet delivers very little.  The “very little” is about to run out and those who are the most dependent on government will be the ones who suffer the most.  It happens in every dictatorship.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Uh oh. Nancy Pelosi’s Offended by Age Question

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi had a sharp exchange with NBC reporter Luke Russert at her press conference this week. Pelosi, surrounded by other women House members was announcing her intent to remain House Minority Leader.

The young Luke Russert asked whether this choice was blocking younger members who wanted to move up in the party.

“Some of your colleagues privately say that your decision to stay on prohibits the party from having a younger leadership and hurts the party in the long term,” he said. “What’s your response?”

“Age discrimination!” some of Pelosi’s colleagues shouted. “Boo!”

Amid shouts of ‘age discrimination,’ Pelosi called for the next question trying to avoid giving an answer.

But Russert continued, “No, excuse me,” he said. “You, Mr. Hoyer, Mr. Clyburn, you’re all over 70. Is your decision to stay on prohibiting younger members from moving forward?”

“Let’s for a moment honor it as a legitimate question, although it’s quite offensive,” Pelosi responded. “You don’t realize that, I guess,” before finally stating, “the answer is no.”

A rather humorous interaction but one has to wonder, if we are gender equal is there a reason women should not be asked age related questions?

As Republicans are trying to tackle the look of their party, it seems like a fair question.

The Least Productive Congress…Why?

The institutionalized “progressive” left is at it again.  Consider this headline published by Yahoo News on behalf of Susan Davis, USA Today and ABC OTUS News:

“Congress could be least productive since 1947”

Three of the first four paragraphs of this “headline news” story focus on attacking the Republican majority in the House of Representatives for the recent lack of legislative success.  This is obviously typical of the “progressive” Party Pravda, which never misses an opportunity to parrot messages being dictated by the George Soros funded Media Matters via Valerie Jarrett and the White House.

Statistics are being manipulated and misrepresented by partisan hacks posing as journalists: “Just 61 bills have become law to date in 2012 out of 3,914 bills that have been introduced by lawmakers, or less than 2 percent of all proposed laws,” or “In 2011, after Republicans took control of the U.S. House, Congress passed just 90 bills into law.

http://news.yahoo.com/congress-could-least-productive-since-1947-011137011.html?_esi=0&

It might be statistically true that “Congress is on pace to make history with the least productive legislative year in the post-World War II era,” but to so strongly insinuate that this is the fault of the House Republican majority, as Davis, USA Today, ABC News and Yahoo News do is a lie.  Utter fabrication…pure unadulterated fiction.

Where the article fails completely (that is if you are seeking factual information rather than “progressive” propaganda) is in the “reporting” of why those numbers are so abysmal.

The United States Senate, under the extreme, partisan, rigidly ideological, failed “leadership” of “progressive” Democrat Harry Reid, has blocked, obstructed, ignored or refused to allow a majority of House passed bills to even come to a vote in the U.S. Senate.

How is any bill passed by the House ever to become law if it is completely blocked from discussion or vote in the Senate?

The reason so many people believe the House is to blame for this situation is the lies spread by institutionalized “progressive” shills like Yahoo News, Susan Davis, USA Today, ABC OTUS News and their ilk.

Should the 112th Congress come to be “defined by partisan divisions and legislative failures”, the blame will rest squarely at the slumping, rounded shoulders of Reid and his “progressive” co-conspirator currently occupying the Oval Office.  The “progressive” Democratic Senate majority has not even passed a budget in three years.  They even voted down the one that came from the Oval Office 97-0.

This is a clear dereliction of duty by the “progressive” Democratic Party.  Thanks to the utter failure of their “progressive” policies, the one and only card left for them to play is using Saul Alinsky style smear tactics against the right attempting to blame the right for problems caused by the left.  This has been the modus operandi of “progressives” since they seized control of the Democratic Party.

The most egregious of lies propagated by the institutionalized “progressive” left is the one put forth by Nancy Pelosi during the TARP debate.  On September 28, 2008 Pelosi placed the blame for the economic collapse entirely on George W. Bush and failed Republican economic policies.

The 2008 financial collapse was a direct result of failed “progressive” social engineering in the U.S. housing market.  For decades the U.S. has had nothing remotely resembling a free market in residential real estate.  Instead, “progressive” big government created monstrosities Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac controlled over half of all U.S. mortgages.  For twenty years, Conservatives warned about the systemic risk Fannie and Freddie posed to the financial system but they were constantly thwarted by the left.  To this very day, the institutionalized “progressive” left denies the essential part Fannie and Freddie played in creating the housing bubble and causing the financial crisis.

Even at the height of the housing bubble, as the extent of the damage was being revealed, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd were still seeking to increase Fannie and Freddie’s role in a market already fettered by “progressive” big government interference.   On behalf of a well-heeled constituency in her congressional district, the liar Nancy Pelosi continued insisting Fannie and Freddie keep the housing bubble going, pushing for their insurance limits to be increased from $417,000 to $700,000 per loan.

Whether in the area of journalism or politics, once the facts are in members of the institutionalized “progressive” left prove themselves to be nothing more than bold faced, willfully deceitful psychopaths unfit to serve in the public arena.

Nancy Pelosi Sees Dead People… Or is she just crazy?

We all know Nancy Pelosi has a flair for the dramatic, but this one takes the cake!

In this video, she explains to a gathering of the Women’s Political Committee that the ghosts of women’s suffragists Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Alice Paul once spoke to her at the White House during a meeting with President George W. Bush.

So, did Nancy actually see dead people? Or has she finally gone absolutely crazy? Or, is she just plain evil?

According to her, this has never happened to her except for this one incident.

 

obamacare: Tip of the Iceberg

Since the ruling by the United States Supreme Court on Thursday, June 28, 2012, the big news in America has been how the obama administration, then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid misrepresented the legislation to Congress, the Senate and the public.

It was consistently presented as a cost saving measure that would reduce the size of U.S. national deficits, thus helping pay down the debt, while improving the quality and lowering the costs of healthcare. Insurance premiums would be reduced.  It would provide coverage for uninsured millions.  If you liked the doctor and healthcare plan you had, you would be able to keep them.

Regrettably for American Citizens, with the exception of covering additional people, none of the rest was ever true.  It will add to the deficit and to the debt.  The quality and availability of healthcare will go down.  Existing doctors will retire and fewer prospective doctors will enter medical practice since the rewards will be outstripped by the costs of a medical education.  Insurance premiums have been will continue to rise, leading employers to drop coverage for employees, thereby adding to the likelihood that both your doctor and your plan will change.

It was never explained how a system cited as being too expensive was going to fund a new federal bureaucracy, start covering more people with the same number of facilities and personnel at a lower cost, while saving the nation trillions of dollars.

Now, we  know – Obama, Pelosi, Reid and company all lied. 

Especially President Obama, who repeatedly pledged to Americans making less than $250,000 that their taxes would never go up.  Not their income tax, not their payroll tax, not their capital gains tax.  None of those taxes would go up, not by one single dime, ever.

The truth is revealed: obamacare: Seven New Taxes on Citizens Earning Less than $250,000

It doesn’t stop there.  Attacks have been made on religious liberties. See healthcare mandate on contraception in religious affiliated institutions:

There have been assaults on freedom of the press. See White House and Media Matters coordinate attacks on FOX News:

Egregious though these examples may be, in the big picture they are only the tip of the iceberg.

•He has violated the individual liberties of all Americans by imposing forced participation in a government healthcare regulatory system without their consent.

•He has collaborated with his Attorney General to ignore equal protection under the law in favor of selective protections based upon arbitrary factors.

•He has violated American bankruptcy laws by willfully denying secured bond holders first payment, in favor of unsecured political supporters.

•He has violated the Constitution by accepting the position of Chairmanship of the UN Security Council.

•He has ignored the Constitutional separation of power by appointing “czars” to oversee matters that are intended to be handled by the legislative branch of the government.

•He has violated the First Amendment right to freedom of the press, by attacking television and radio networks, stations and broadcasters while attempting censorship.

•He has violated the individual’s right to free speech through creation of an email address to report Citizens in a blatant attempt to silence dissent through intimidation.

•He has violated the Law by ignoring the War Powers Act and engaging the United States military in overseas hostilities without the consent of Congress.

•He has violated the First Amendment by attempting to impose restrictions on free speech through implementation of Net Neutrality by the FCC.

•He has endeavored to interfere in the free market through the imposition of The Clean Energy and Security Act, which mandates carbon emissions be reduced to 17 percent below 2005 levels by 2020, 42 percent by 2030, and 84 percent by 2050. By 2020, this tax will extract an estimated $160 billion from the economy, or an average $1,870 per family.

•He has violated the Constitution by having the government offer $4,500 rebates to people for turning in older motor vehicles for newer vehicles

•He has interfered in America’s free market by having the National Labor Relations Board sue a privately owned company for planning to open for business in a State that protects an employee’s ability to work free of forced union membership.

•He has interfered in the free market by imposing restrictions and regulations on petroleum, natural gas and coal production in the United States.

•He has abandoned enforcing the security of American borders and protected illegal immigrants from prosecution for violation of immigration laws:

•He has abandoned and insulted our most enduring and faithful allies through speech and action, the most glaring among these being placing the State of Israel on the list of nations that foster terrorism.

•He has sought to impose additional taxes on America without the people’s Consent.

•For depriving American Citizens in some cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury.

•For transferring billions of dollars to enemies of the United States through Foreign Aid.

•For ignoring the Constitutional separation of powers by publicly attacking the Supreme Court of the United States.

•For attacking America’s bedrock family values by ordering the Department of Justice to not defend the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act.

•For repeated attacks upon America’s Christian foundation.

•For repeatedly slandering American Citizens with false accusations of racism, violent tendencies and hatred.

•For grossly accelerating and increasing the amount of America’s debt through passage of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, which had negligible effect on unemployment, sent billions of dollars overseas and wasted billions domestically by lining the pockets of political cronies while bailing out States guilty of practicing irresponsible budgetary policies.

•For putting America and America’s allies at greater risk through cancellation of missile defense systems.

•For expanding the need for enormous increases in government borrowing,

•For collaborating with his Attorney General to try enemy combatants in civilian Courts.

•For collaborating with his Attorney General and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms in the implementation of operation Fast and Furious, which has been implicated in the murder of American Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

•For devaluing America’s currency by engaging in the practice of Quantitative Easing, allowing the Federal Reserve to purchase trillions of dollars of our national debt.

The list could continue.

A president, whose character is thus marked by acts which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to govern a free people.

Remember.

Nancy Pelosi & Congressional Black Caucus Walk Out in Support of Gunrunning Drug Cartels and Murderers

Nancy Pelosi & Congressional Black Caucus Walk Out in Support of Gunrunning Drug Cartels and Murderers

Thousands lie dead in Mexico, bloody and beheaded in the streets. Bolstered by automatic weapons that the US Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco & Firearms made certain got into their hands, they have extended a reign of terror across Mexico and US southern border states.

When federally licensed firearm (FFLs) dealers raised the alarm to ATF officials that straw purchasers were buying large numbers of deadly weapons the ATF assured them is was ok to make the sale. When an FFL told ATF they did not have enough weapons to fill an order, the ATF told them to order more. When border patrol agent Brian Terry lay dead in the Arizona desert surrounded by weapons sold to the Mexican drug cartels under the Fast and Furious gun walking program, no one in the Justice Department seemed to know anything about what happened.

To date no one in justice or ATF has been fired, and that is A-OK with Pelosi and her cohorts. Nine secret service agents were fired within a week of being found in the company of prostitutes, but a year and a half after the brutal murder of Brian Terry, the Congressional Black Caucus is satisfied to let those responsible for the wholesale slaughter of Mexican citizens go un-investigated and unpunished. The democrats who walked out of congress today don’t want to know why there have been no answers and no retribution for those who were involved in making sure these guns got into the hands of these heinous villains, and they certainly don’t want to know anything about those who have so far successfully covered up that involvement.

What else are we to conclude but that those who claim racism at every effort to secure our borders, don’t give a single whit for the lives of thousands murdered south of our border; they would rather pose for the camera.
