Bribery

March 8, 2010

Another great article by Neal Boortz  in the Atlanta Paper.

Remember Obama talking during the campaign how it would no longer be “business as usual” in Washington once he was elected?  Yeah, right.  Remember him talking about “transparency”?  Yeah, right.  This article points out just what a hypocrite Obama really is.  Not that Liberals really care.  All they care about is the fact he is a Democrat and not Bush. 

Read it.

Hypocrisy

March 4, 2010

Neal Boortz posted this on his site today.  It’s awesome.  It’s because of things like this, I am fully convinced, that many Liberals, including cowardly Political Science Professors, decided to cut and run and take their discussions underground.  They knew that Obama and the Democrats would be doing the very things they ripped Bush and the GOP for.  They knew things would be headed this direction.  Here is the post:


RECONCILIATION

Back to this whole healthcare debate …

While Barack Obama didn’t explicitly say it, he opened the door for Democrats to use reconciliation to pass healthcare reform. And that is exactly what they intend to do. Obama says:

“[N]o matter which approach you favor, I believe the United States Congress owes the American people a final vote on health care reform. We have debated this issue thoroughly, not just for a year, but for decades. Reform has already passed the House with a majority. It has already passed the Senate with a supermajority of sixty votes. And now it deserves the same kind of up-or-down vote that was cast on welfare reform, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, COBRA health coverage for the unemployed, and both Bush tax cuts — all of which had to pass Congress with nothing more than a simple majority … I have therefore asked leaders in both of Houses of Congress to finish their work and schedule a vote in the next few weeks.”

Never mind the .. dare I say it .. hypocrisy surrounding this approach. Here is not one but four different examples of Obama demagoguing the use of reconciliation.

CBS Interview 11/2/04
My understanding of the Senate is that you need 60 votes to get something significant to happen, which means that Democrats and Republicans have to ask the question, do we have the will to move an American agenda forward, not a Democratic or Republican agenda forward?

Change to Win Convention 9/25/07
The bottom line is that our healthcare plans are similar, the question once again is, who can get it done? Who can build a movement for change? This is an area where we’re going to have to have a 60% majority in the Senate and the House in order to actually get a bill to my desk. We’re going to have to have a majority to get a bill to my desk. That is not just a fifty plus one majority.

Obama Interview with the Concord Monitor 10/9/07
You’ve got to break out of what I call the sort of fifty plus one pattern of presidential politics. Maybe you eke out a victory of fifty plus one. Then you can’t govern. You know, you get Air Force One, there are a lot of nice perks, but you can’t deliver on healthcare. We are not going to pass universal health care with a fifty plus one strategy.

Center for American Progress Conference 7/12/06
Those big-ticket items: fixing our health care system. You know, one of the arguments that sometimes I get with my fellow progressives, and some of these have flashed up in the blog communities on occasion, is this notion that we should function sort of like Karl Rove where we identify our core base, we throw ’em red meat, we get a fifty plus one victory. See, Karl Rove doesn’t need a broad consensus because he doesn’t believe in government. If we want to transform the country, though, that requires a sizeable majority.

And then lest we forget this from Robert Byrd in 2005. When Republicans wanted to use reconciliation to stop the Democrat filibuster of Bush judicial nominees, Robert Byrd compared the strategy to Nazi tactics. Seriously! Here’s what he had to say back then:

Many times in our history we have taken up arms to protect a minority against the tyrannical majority in other lands. We, unlike Nazi Germany or Mussolini’s Italy, have never stopped being a nation of laws, not of men.

But witness how men with motives and a majority can manipulate law to cruel and unjust ends. Historian Alan Bullock writes that Hitler’s dictatorship rested on the constitutional foundation of a single law, the Enabling Law. Hitler needed a two-thirds vote to pass that law, and he cajoled his opposition in the Reichstag to support it. Bullock writes that “Hitler was prepared to promise anything to get his bill through, with the appearances of legality preserved intact.” And he succeeded.

Hitler’s originality lay in his realization that effective revolutions, in modern conditions, are carried out with, and not against, the power of the State: the correct order of events was first to secure access to that power and then begin his revolution. Hitler never abandoned the cloak of legality; he recognized the enormous psychological value of having the law on his side. Instead, he turned the law inside out and made illegality legal.

Please, folks; if you won’t fight for your liberty, how about fighting for the future of your children and grandchildren.

Now, any Liberals out there wish to explain this obvious hypocrisy? Anyone?

Contempt for the Constitution

November 2, 2009

Here is Nancy at her finest:

The exchange with Speaker Pelosi on Thursday occurred as follows:
 
CNSNews.com: “Madam Speaker, where specifically does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to enact an individual health insurance mandate?”
 
Pelosi: “Are you serious? Are you serious?”
 
CNSNews.com: “Yes, yes I am.”
 
Pelosi then shook her head before taking a question from another reporter. Her press spokesman, Nadeam Elshami, then told CNSNews.com that asking the speaker of the House where the Constitution authorized Congress to mandated that individual Americans buy health insurance as not a “serious question.”

 

Charlie Rangel

October 8, 2009

Remember, boys and girls, when someone from your team is shown to be corrupt, just give him/her a pass.  Like the Democrats.

Where, oh where are the loyalists and supporters and defenders?  Down in the bunker, hiding like our favorite Political Science Professor from down south?

Capitalism

September 22, 2009

I wanted to take a second and recommend an excellent book by Thomas Dilorenzo:

How Capitalism saved America: The untold history of our country, from the Pilgrims to the present.

It’s an awesome read and really delves into not just the history of capitalism but also the anti-capitalists and their flawed theories as well the idiocy of the anti-trusts, socialism and massive govco intervention. 

It really should be required reading these days with what the Democrats are trying to do to the United States.  He offers great, detailed examples of the wonders of Capitalism  and how time after time it gave us better results than anything the Government could ever dream about much less achieve. 

I’m looking forward to reading his book on Lincoln that really puts his Presidency into perspective.

Supreme Court Interrogations

July 16, 2009

Isn’t it interesting how many people, especially in the media, have such short memories?  The memories I speak of is how Democrats treat Republican court nominees, especially Supreme Court ones compared to how the Republicans treat Democrat ones.  Republicans are very cordial, polite and ask common sense question.  Democrats, on the other hand…well, here are some great examples:

– investigating nominees video rental history

– bringing in surprise witnesses at the tail end of the hearings

– discussing pubic hair on a coke can

– accusing white Republicans of being racist due to their DNA

– being against a nominee because he is hispanic (can you imagine if Newt had written a memo to the GOP telling them to not vote for a nominee because he was hispanic?  Why can Democrats do that?).

– misquoting a nominee to make them look good

– being so vicious in their attacks the nonimee wife left the hearing in tears

– annoucing that the nominee would instill: “a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors in midnight raids, schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of the Government, and the doors of the Federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens …”

– warning the other party to be careful what they say

Ever notice the votes?  Just take a look at the way the Republicans voted for Clinton’s nominees and the way the Democrats, especially Obama, votes for the ones the Bush nominated. 

Oh, and by the way, these lying, hypocritical bastards are also supported, very aggressively I might add, by many prominent Christian speakers, pastors and college professors on Christian campuses.  Why?  For one reason and one reason only….the big letter ‘D’ on their jersey.  Sad.

Question

July 13, 2009

Just a quick question for some of you out there.  More or less a “what if” scenario that I was curious to see what kind of response I get.  Here it is:

Let’s say that next week it comes out the President Obama was not born in the United States.  Just, for the sake of argument, let’s say that documents come out that show 100%, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he was not born in the United States.  My question is, what would happen next?  What would the reaction of Obama be?  How about the Democratic party?  Or, what about the populations of many of the major cities across the U.S.?  What do you think that reaction would be and what do you see happening next? 

I have my own thoughts on this but wanted to get some feedback from others first before I threw my opinion out there.  So, what say you?

Tax Holiday

January 15, 2009

So, Obama’s pick for Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner,  took a little “tax holiday” and conveniently forgot to pay his taxes.  This, according to the Democrats and the media, was a simple, common mistake.  It’s no big deal, right?  I mean, this guy is too BIG to fail (according to Chuckie Schumer), right? This is SUCH a joke.  Do you really think a Republican would get away with this?  Heck, they tried to bring Bush down with things he did 20 years ago yet this guy, who is going to be in CHARGE of collecting taxes), is given a pass? 

BTW, do you remember who the press and the Democrat machine crushed just a few months ago when he didn’t pay some taxes?  Anyone?  Anyone?

Fairness? Bi-partisanship?

January 6, 2009

Bullsh*t is what it is.  Human Events is reporting that:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosiplans to re-write House rules today to ensure that the Republican minority is unable to have any influence on legislation. Pelosi’s proposals are so draconian, and will so polarize the Capitol, that any thought President-elect Obama has of bipartisan cooperation will be rendered impossible before he even takes office.

Pelosi’s rule changes — which may be voted on today — will reverse the fairness rules that were written around Newt Gingrich’s “Contract with America.”

But wait…what happened to Obama and his “Bi-partisanship”?  How is this a “new tone” for Washington?  What the hell?

Let me just say this…I really don’t have a problem with this in theory.   I mean, those who are in power should get to decide the rules (as long as they don’t violate the Constitution).  That was always the problem with Republicans.  They always tried to play nice and be fair and all that and the Democrats just throw mud and slime and crap back at them.  It’s something like this….a Democrat and Republican are fighting and suddenly the Democrat falls off a ledge but grabs on to a tree root and is hanging by a thread.  The Republican puts his hand out to help him and the Democrat just grabs his hand, yanks and throws him over the cliff and then climbs up himself.  That is how it has always been and how it is now.  What the Republicans need to do is, when that happens, just grab a club and start hammering aways at their hands and then kick them in the head to make sure they fall and then, for good measure, they need to push a few boulders down on top of them to make sure.

Anyway, my issue with all this is how the Democrats cry and whine and talk about “fairness” and “reaching across the aisle” and all that garbage and then they turn around and pull this stunt.  What a joke.
