Harry Reid’s Past Comes Back To Haunt Him

In America, Congress, Government Lies, Health Care, Obama, US Senate on February 24, 2010 at 8:28 pm

Under the Bush Administration Reid explained:

“When legislation is supported by the majority of Americans it eventually overcomes the filibuster’s delay. But, when legislation only has the support of the minority the filibuster slows the legislation, prevents the Senate from ramming it through, and gives the American people enough time to join the opposition. The filibuster is far from a procedural gimmick it’s part of the fabric of this institution we call the Senate.  It was well known in Colonial legislature before we became a country and it’s an integral part of our Country’s 214 year history. The roots of the filibuster are found in the the Constitution and in our own rules. In establishing each house of Congress, Article 1 Section 5 the Constitution states: each house may determine its rules.  And in crafting the rules of the Senate, Senators establish the right to extended debate.”

What would you like us to believe: The filibuster is a necessary tool in crafting legislation OR it’s simply a Republican gimmick being used to block much-needed reform?

Obama Explains How Snow, No Snow, Warmer Temps And Cooler Temps All Indicate Global Warming

In Breaking News, Congress, global warming, Obama, Uncategorized, US Senate, World News on February 23, 2010 at 1:06 pm

Gateway Pundit reports:

Beat That Dead Horse–
Barack Obama admitted in 2008, “Under my plan of a cap and trade system electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” (Video).  Obama also admitted in 2008 that cap and trade would bankrupt the coal industry. (Video) In 2009 he urged the US Senate not to believe his own misinformation on higher energy costs and pass cap and trade legislation anyway. And despite all of the evidence that the global warming hoax was manufactured, Barack Obama still wants to ram the democrat’s destructive cap and trade legislation through Congress.

This past weekend Obama was pushing the junk science in Nevada. Obama told the crowd that the record cold and snow this year was just part of global warming climate change. These zombies would believe anything.

Obama must have missed the news debunking the hurricane myth.
Oh well, his audience ate it up anyway.

It sounds to me like the facts debunking proving climate change are as obvious as the need for health care reform for the best health care system in the world.  Stay tuned for more words of wisdom from our Commander-In-Chief/leading climatologist.

CPAC: My Hero, Thaddeus McCotter Speaks Simple Truth

In America, Congress, CPAC, freedom, Integrity, living free, morality, Tea Party, Thaddeus McCotter, US Senate on February 23, 2010 at 12:05 am

McCotter’s dry humor and simple analysis of the current administration’s agenda continues to win over American patriots. America needs more simple-speaking public servants like Thad McCotter.  The more I read the writings of our Founding Fathers the more I realize how far our current politicians have fallen. Principles are simple, Thaddeus gets it.

Tomorrow is a new day, let’s make it a good one.

Marco Rubio Kicks A*s At CPAC!

In Congress, freedom, Integrity, living free, Obama, Scott Brown, US Senate, World News on February 18, 2010 at 2:10 pm

(video provided by Gateway Pundit via The Right Scoop)

Rubio, the 38 year-old son of Cuban immigrants rocked the house today in front of thousands.  Marco Rubio’s straight talk and bold patriotism electrified audience members as they listened to his plan for the future.  First, Thaddeus McCotter, then Scott Brown, and now Marco Rubio? See a trend?  Make no mistake, these are citizens stepping up to be politicians rather than children raised to be politicians. Americans have had enough of career politicians, unlimited expense accounts and high-brow cocktail parties, they want results.

Rubio explains (via Washington Post) how the Obama administration has furthered their cause through opportunity: “They are using this downturn as cover, not to fix America but to try and change America, to fundamentally redefine the role of government in our lives and the role of America in the world,” Rubio said. “The good news is it didn’t take long for the American people to figure this out.”

It's Settled. Obama Is The Best Liar Ever.

In Congress, Government Lies, morality, Obama, US Senate, World News on February 17, 2010 at 9:27 am

It takes a special person to look into the eyes of America and tell a lie as big as the audience to which its told. I can’t say enough about the courage it must take to pull this one off…

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
