Millionaire Pelosi Uses US Military Jets To Shuttle Her Children & Grandchildren; $18,000/hr Of Taxpayer Dollars

In Congress, Corruption, Government Lies, Obama, US Senate, World News on January 30, 2010 at 5:21 pm

Doug Ross writes:

Meet the Pelosi family! Using Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, Judicial Watch uncovered thousands of pages of travel documents related to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s use of military aircraft.

What hasn’t been revealed so far is that military aircraft are being used to shuttle Pelosi’s kids and grandkids between DC and San Francisco without any Congressional representatives even onboard! Put simply, the United States Air Force is serving as a multi-billion dollar chauffeur- and baby-sitting service for Nancy Pelosi’s kids and grandkids — presumably because commercial travel is beneath the families of the autocrats.

But this couldn’t be a waste of resources because the U.S. military really isn’t engaged in any other significant activities around the world.

After reading my previous posts on Scott Brown and Thad McCotter, could you ever imagine either of them wasting tax dollars like Pelosi? The time has come to usher in a new breed of politician; politicians must understand every dollar in Washington is raised by hard-working Americans.

Again, Doug Ross uncovers some of the letters written by Pelosi for the outrageous expenditures:

Obama to House Republicans: "I Am Not An Ideologue"

In Congress, Corruption, Government Lies, Health Care, Obama, Socialism on January 29, 2010 at 5:16 pm

Today President Obama visited House Republicans at their retreat in Baltimore. The overall mood of the encounter was tense as Obama delivered his frustrations at the “enemy camp”. After explaining the health care bill is “centrist” to House Republicans, Obama went on to say (Source: AP via Gateway Pundit):

“The notion that this was a radical package is just not true,” Obama said. “I am not an ideologue.”

Pay close attention to the body language in the two following videos. Just a few basic tips to remember when reading body language:

  • A guilty person gets defensive. An innocent person will often go on the offensive.
  • A liar is uncomfortable facing his questioner/accuser and may turn his head or body away.
  • Timing and duration of emotional gestures and emotions are off a normal pace. The display of emotion is delayed, stays longer it would naturally, then stops suddenly.
  • Liars sometimes avoid “lying” by not making direct statements. They imply answers instead of denying something directly.
  • The guilty person may speak more than natural, adding unnecessary details to convince you… they are not comfortable with silence or pauses in the conversation.
  • Words may be garbled and spoken softly, and syntax and grammar may be off. In other
    words, his sentences will likely be muddled rather than emphasized.
  • Faster Blinking may indicate lying.

(Just keep these in mind when you watch the President “defend” his agenda)

In this next video Obama admits the legislative process got a bit “messy” with regards to health care (oh yes sir, it did!).

When asked direct question, Obama seems most uncomfortable…

UPDATE: Gateway Pundit explains: Obama lies.

Hitler Responds To The IPad

James O'Keefe's Statement Released

In Congress, Corruption, freedom, Government Lies, Health Care, Integrity, US Senate on January 29, 2010 at 12:09 pm

(Source: Biggovernment.com via The Jawa Report)

“I learned from a number of sources that many of Senator Landrieu’s constituents were having trouble getting through to her office to tell her that they didn’t want her taking millions of federal dollars in exchange for her vote on the healthcare bill. When asked about this, Senator Landrieu’s explanation was that, “Our lines have been jammed for weeks.” I decided to investigate why a representative of the people would be out of touch with her constituents for “weeks” because her phones were broken. In investigating this matter, we decided to visit Senator Landrieu’s district office – the people’s office – to ask the staff if their phones were working.

On reflection, I could have used a different approach to this investigation, particularly given the sensitivities that people understandably have about security in a federal building. The sole intent of our investigation was to determine whether or not Senator Landrieu was purposely trying to avoid constituents who were calling to register their views to her as their Senator. We video taped the entire visit, the government has those tapes, and I’m eager for them to be released because they refute the false claims being repeated by much of the mainstream media.”

It seems O’Keefe was trying to get to the bottom of the “jammed phones” mystery (in “the people’s office”). This project did not involve illegal wire taps (sorry Keith Olbermann and MSNBC) it was, much like the revealing ACORN project, a search for truth. Of course the liberal-left want this kid locked up, why wouldn’t they? I hope he is back at it soon. Good work James.

Paul Kirk Illegally Votes In Place Of Scott Brown Today

In Congress, Corruption, Government Lies, Obama, Scott Brown, US Senate on January 29, 2010 at 3:33 am

Today the Senate voted on three major pieces of Legislation that require 60 votes to pass.

1. To raise the debt ceiling to $14.3 trillion.
2. To reduce the deficit by establishing five-year discretionary spending caps.
3. And Ben Bernanke’s confirmation.

Redstate.com explains:

According to Senate rules and precedent, Kirk’s term expired last Tuesday upon the election of Scott Brown. Furthermore, Massachusetts law can be interpreted, according to GOP lawyers, as:

Based on Massachusetts law, Senate precedent, and the U.S. Constitution, Republican attorneys said Kirk will no longer be a senator after election day, period. Brown meets the age, citizenship, and residency requirements in the Constitution to qualify for the Senate. “Qualification” does not require state “certification,” the lawyers said.

Additionally, as reported in the Weekly Standard and investigated and confirmed by GOP lawyers:

Appointed Senator Paul Kirk will lose his vote in the Senate after Tuesday’s election in Massachusetts of a new senator and cannot be the 60th vote for Democratic health care legislation, according to Republican attorneys.

Using this interpretation, Kirk cannot vote on any other legislation. Moreover, further analysis by Michael Stern concludes:

The Senate subcommittee and committee concluded, based on its hearing and review, that “the term of service of a Senator appointed to fill a vacancy in an unexpired term ends on the day when his successor is elected by the people.” 1939 Congressional Record, p. 998. There was evidently no controversy among either the subcommittee or full committee regarding this legal conclusion, and the committee then presented a resolution to the Senate for adoption, expressing the view that Berry’s term of service expired on November 8, 1938, the date of the special election. As Senator Connally, a member of the subcommittee, explained to the Senate, the fact that the Tennessee statute purported to extend Berry’s term until the qualification of his successor was of no force because the statute was “plainly in conflict with the provisions of the seventeenth amendment.” Accordingly, the Senate adopted the proposed resolution without dissent. 1939 Congressional Record, p. 1058.

Based on this authority, it would appear that a valid point of order could be raised as to Senator Kirk’s participation in Senate proceedings after January 19, 2010.

Perhaps the GOP is so accustomed to being shut out, they failed to act on such a blatant violation of Senate law. Only time will tell if today’s votes will be upheld. I am really getting tired of this nonsense.

UPDATE: Legal Insurrection discusses the legislation scam.

Thaddeus McCotter: My New Hero

In Congress, freedom, Integrity, living free, US Senate on January 28, 2010 at 11:23 pm

Thaddeus McCotter is the definition of what a politician SHOULD be-a true public servant. This guy is awesome. No double speak, no over-the-top rhetoric, no nonsense. He tells Congress, in plain English, exactly what he thinks. Watch him bring everyone in Congress back to earth:

Here is another great video of him. (and as Jawa Report puts it, another roundhouse kick of common sense and wisdom)

Pelosi Doesn't Care If You Don't Want Obamacare-She's Going To Pass It

In Congress, Corruption, Government Lies, Health Care, Obama, Socialism on January 28, 2010 at 10:43 pm

Here’s what Nancy said today:

“We’ll go through the gate. If the gate’s closed, we’ll go over a fence. If the fence is too high, we’ll pole vault in. If that doesn’t work, we’ll parachute in but we’re going to get health care reform passed for the American people.”

Isn’t it interesting that only 30% of Americans actually want socialist Obamacare and Nancy still won’t listen? What’s the deal here, seriously?

Gateway Pundit says:

“Only 30% of Americans say they want Congress to pass Obamacare.
But, this won’t stop Pelosi from parachuting it in.”
