Pelosi: If We Win, We’re Going to Turn Back the Clock By Repealing the New Law and Massively Increasing Taxes

Leave a comment

H/T Town Hall.

If the DemocRats win the Midterm election they will impeach President Trump and try the Damnedest to repeal the Second Amendment.

The DemocRats will try to implement an Australian style gun grab.  

Nancy Pelosi didn’t have a great day yesterday, making an embarrassing, Anchorman-style mistake on social media, then handing Republicans another ready-made attack line against Democrats heading into the fall.  On the Twitter faux pas, it looks like she or somebody on her staff was supposed to tag a tweet with names or handles of certain individuals prior to publication — but that somebody must have missed the memo.  Oops:

That’s a silly mistake, akin to this error, that’s basically straight out of Veep.  Less of a laughing matter, however, was Pelosi’s strong implication that if they win in the fall, her party will seek to repeal the totality of the GOP-passed tax law and start from scratch:

Pelosi: Democrats Will Repeal the GOP Tax Law When We Retake the House

“It’s not about chipping at this piece or that piece it’s about a comprehensive look at what our tax policy should be for the future.”

ntknetwork.com

The moderator of the event asked Pelosi if Democrats would re-write the tax bill from scratch or focus on reversing specific elements. “One of our complaints about what they did with the tax bill is they did it in the dark of night with the speed of light,” Pelosi said…“We’ll sit down at the table and say … what would be a tax bill that creates growth, that creates good paying jobs as it reduces the deficit?” Pelosi said. “It’s not about chipping at this piece or that piece, it’s about a comprehensive look at what our tax policy should be for the future.”

Uprooting the entire tax law would inflict massive tax increases on nearly every American family. Approximately nine-in-ten taxpayers are experiencing a reduction in their tax burden thanks to the new policy, on which every last Democrat in Congress voted ‘no.’  Republicans’ parallel programs of de-regulation and tax relief have helped fuel and sustain a sizzling US economy, the positive effects of which are simply undeniable.  Voters, who are quite wary of President Trump overall, recognize this, and have rewarded him with much stronger marks on taxes and the economy than on other fronts.  Public support for tax reform has flipped from badly upside-down to right-side-up, as Democratic myths and demagoguery have been disproven in real time by people’s lived reality — even as people like Pelosi sneer at the progress.  Talking about undoing tax reform means that Democrats are willing to hammer families, individuals and small businesses with tax increases, including the overwhelming majority of middle income households.

Liberals would likely focus the rhetoric justifying their clawback by targeting that evil corporate tax cut, which is a big element of why the economy has taken off.  It’s why hiring is up, and why hundreds of companies have shared their tax windfalls with millions of their employees through bonuses and other enhanced benefits.  It’s why tens of millions of Americans are seeing utility bills slashed.  And it’s why small business owners are feeling as optimistic as ever about the prospects for their businesses.  Are Nancy Pelosi and friends intent on erasing these gains?

Wichita Railway Services Gives Nation’s Highest Tax Cut Bonuses

In February, Wichita Railway Services LLC president and CEO Bob Aldrich summoned his five employees to his office. “I called them into the office which is always fun. We are like a big family here….

atr.org

Two more points: First, while demagoguing corporate tax cuts will be an easier political sell for Democrats, it’s important to remember not only that those reductions are a key driver of the robust economic climate, but also that the new corporate rates are a sorely-needed correction to a previous status quo that put American companies at a distinct competitive disadvantage.  Prior to reform, US corporates rate — both statutory and effective — were among the very highest in the developed world.  The Republican law brings the United States roughly into the middle of the pack on these measures, a major improvement.  The problem was so glaring that even President Obama proposed slashing corporate taxes during his term in office.  The GOP finally delivered results on that front, providing pro-competitiveness parity and sorely-needed certainty to job creators.  Threatening to scramble the rules again would threaten to undermine the important economic gains achieved under the new law.

And second, to Pelosi’s claim that the reform plan was rammed through at “the speed of light,” the truth is that it was passed under a process at least somewhat resembling regular order.  It entailed committee hearings, amendments and votes in each house, full debate on both floors, and a bicameral conference committee to iron out differences between the two chambers’ legislative text.  It took months of work, and years of groundwork.  Oh, and the notion that Nancy Pelosi — a top Obama ally — is worried about deficits is laughable on its face.  Her position is that the government virtually always spends too little.

Congressional Republicans Move To Override FCC Net Neutrality Rules

Leave a comment

This is from The Daily Caller.

I am glad to see the Republicans stepping up to the plate to stop this power grab.

We pay enough taxes and fees on our phones to supply phones for the moochers.

I do not want to do the same with taxes and fees on my internet service to sponsor moochers. 

 

Republicans in the House of Representatives this week made a legislative move to override the Federal Communications Commission’s new net neutrality rules.

Fourteen Republicans, led by Georgia Rep. Doug Collins, filed a resolution disapproving of new FCC regulations banning Internet service providers (ISPs) from segregating Web traffic based on speed and price, which they argue threatens industry innovation and expansion. (RELATED: FCC Votes In Favor Of Net Neutrality)

“Congress disapproves the rule submitted by the Federal Communications Commission relating to the matter of protecting and promoting the open Internet,” the eight-line resolution reads. “[A]nd such rule shall have no force or effect.”

Under the Congressional Review Act, the resolution can be brought directly to the floor for votes on both sides of Congress and bypass the threat of a filibuster by Democrats in the Senate.

“The agency is stretching old definitions to fit its regulatory agenda,” Collins, who serves as vice-chair of the Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet, said in a statement Monday describing the new FCC regulations scheduled to take effect in June.

Under the regulations, ISPs are essentially reclassified as public utilities and subject to authority granted in Title II of the 1996 Telecommunications Act — authority based on that used to regulate the Bell telephone monopoly and open up telecommunications competition in 1934.

“Only businesses with the greatest resources will survive Washington, D.C.’s latest bureaucratic expansion into a growing and dynamic industry, particularly mobile broadband.”

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler, along with Democrats in both chambers, believe those rules are necessary in order to safeguard Internet content creators and users from paying higher prices for acceptable service speeds and unsegregated traffic.
Pro-net neutrality advocates argue the need for such rules was made apparent in deals brokered between Netflix, AT&T and Verizon last year, in which the video streaming website agreed to pay more after alleging both companies were intentionally throttling its transmission speeds to users.

“My House colleagues and I want a free and open Internet, one that increases access and participation, but legislating solutions needs to happen in public, in the halls of Congress,” Collins said.

Other resolution co-sponsors include Reps. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, Steve Chabot and Bob Latta of Ohio, Lynn Westmoreland, Rick Allen, Barry Loudermilk and Buddy Carter of Georgia, Glenn Grothman of Wisconsin, Bill Posey, Vern Buchanan and Dennis Ross of Florida, Ryan Zinke of Montana and Sam Johnson and Ted Poe of Texas.

Though a Republican majority in both houses could pass the measure, the bill would likely be dead on arrival to the President Obama’s desk. Prior to Wheeler’s announcement of the new rules in February, Obama called on the agency to implement Title II authority over broadband and wireless providers last November.

Republicans in the Senate led by Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee Chairman John Thune are working on their own legislative solution to peel back Title II reclassification, while setting up the many of the protections called for by net neutrality advocates, including bans on content blocking, throttling and higher-priced service speeds. The bill has yet to draw any Democratic co-sponsors. (RELATED: Republicans Are Not Giving Up The Net Neutrality Fight)

The agency’s new rules were officially published in the Federal Register on Monday, setting off a countdown to their official implementation on June 12. on the same day, USTelecom filed the first of many legal challenges expected from industry trade groups and service providers, which seeks a repeal of the rules based on the assertion that the FCC’s reclassification violates federal law.

What If Obama Wants a 3rd Term?

 The prospect of this happening is damned scary.

I can actually see this happening considering the Republicans are rolling over and playing dead.

So far Barry has said screw the Constitution and has been able to get away with doing so.

 

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: John in Belleville, Pennsylvania, next up.  Open Line Friday.  How’s it going?

CALLER:  Hello, Rush.  It’s a thrill and an honor to get to talk to you.

RUSH:  Thank you, sir, very much.  I’m glad you made it through.

CALLER:  First, I do want to say that that 90-something percent accuracy figure is incorrect.  I’ve listened and I believe you’re 100%.

RUSH:  Well, you’re very kind, sir.

CALLER:  Now, my question — and I know I’ll sound like a kook. But assuming the Democrats can’t come up with anybody decent to win the presidency and the powers that push Obama’s buttons tell him to stay as president or stay on because of some created crisis, how in the world do we get him out of there?  The Republicans don’t have the gall to do it, and I think the Supreme Court is pretty well left-leaning at this point. So how do we get rid of Obama if he decides to stay?

RUSH:  Let’s put this in a scenario, because some of you might be thinking, “All right, Rush, you’re going too far now.  All you guys thinking Obama’s doing this and doing that, he’s violating the Constitution.  He would never do that!”  Well, let’s construct a scenario and see if it has even the slightest bit of believability, and let’s establish some things that we know to be true that Obama also knows.  Chief among those is that the Republican Party has said that impeachment is off the table.

More than once they’ve said this.  The Republican Party has made it clear that they will not use that constitutional measure as a means of reining Obama in, and maybe even getting him out of office.  They have also made it very clear in just the most recent vote on the funding for Department of Homeland Security that they will not use the power of the purse to stop Obama.  Okay, so those duo realities equal Obama fully aware the Republican Party will take no steps to stop him in his ongoing violations and running up to the edges of the Constitution.

Now, let’s fast forward to, say, May, June of 2016.

Let’s say that Mrs. Clinton has withstood all of this e-mail stuff, that Elizabeth Warren has not gotten in the race, that Algore took the temperature and decided not to go, that it’s just Mrs. Clinton and Joe Biden.  On the other side, the Republican field has a great list of possible candidates, and they will have by that time engaged in a vigorous debate which may have served to educate the country on the foibles and the problems of the past eight years, and the country may be looking forward to a dramatic change to Republican in the election of 2016.

Obama fully aware of this, would go on television and say that the Democrat field is so weak that he’s not confident that Mrs. Clinton can win. He might even take steps to make sure she can’t win. You know, sabotage her campaign.  And then call a national speech to the nation in which the main point is that it’s beginning to look like the Republicans will win the White House, and this is something that he can’t risk.  Not after eight courageous years of transforming America!

We just cannot put it all to the risk of being unraveled and undone by these racist, sexist, misogynist, whatever else Republicans.  So as a service to the nation and to the nation, he is going to forget the Twenty-Second Amendment and either not leave office or run for reelection himself as the Democrat nominee. Just imagine that scenario.  I don’t care how unreal it sounds, how unbelievable it sounds. Imagine it.  What would anybody do?  What would Mitch McConnell do?  What would John Boehner do?

Mark Levin would have a heart attack.

I would probably have an aneurysm.

We’d be done.

What would anybody do?  The Supreme Court would say, “Nobody has standing here! There’s no case yet.  Obama hasn’t done anything yet.  We can’t do anything about this until he actually serves a third term, and then you gotta bring the case to us.” What would anybody do if he says this?  The media would be cheering it.  Put all this in the mix.  This guy’s out there thinking about this.  It’s hard to believe, it’s so unlikely, but don’t think… Obama’s planning on staying in Washington part of time.

He’s got a plan to continue to live in Washington after he has left office for that exact reason. Whoever the next president is, Republican or Democrat, if that next president starts to unravel any of this, Obama’s on television every night. He knows he’s gonna have the media in his back pocket and whoever the next president is will not get away with anything without a huge fight from Obama.  What would the Republicans do?  (interruption)  I think the odds are the Republicans might call an emergency constitutional convention and amend the Twenty-Second Amendment, permitting Obama to do this because their fear of being critical of Obama would destroy their chances of winning with the independents.

Actually, Republicans Can Cut The Funding For Obama’s Amnesty

1 Comment

This is from The Daily Caller.

We need to hold the Republicans feet to the fire to stop Obama and his amnesty.

The establishment Republicans favor amnesty so we need to battle them as well as Obama.

 

Congress has the power to defund President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty order, the Congressional Research Service announced Wednesday. This, after a week of bipartisan declarations that Congress was powerless to stop the order.

“In light of Congress’s constitutional power over the purse, the Supreme Court has recognized that ‘Congress may always circumscribe agency discretion to allocate resources by putting restrictions in the operative statutes,’” reads a report from the Congressional Research Service. The report was sent to Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions’ office, first reported by Breitbart News, and has since been obtained by The Daily Caller.

The Congressional Research Service (CRS) is an “authoritative, confidential, objective and nonpartisan” congressional analysis outfit that operates out of the Library of Congress.

The analysis stands in stark contrast with a previous analysis by the Republican-dominated House Appropriations Committee, which issued a Thursday statement saying that the agency tasked with executing the order, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, ”is entirely self-funded through the fees it collects on various immigration applications. Congress does not appropriate funds for any of its operations, including the issuance of immigration status or work permits, with the exception of the ‘E-Verify’ program. Therefore, the appropriations process cannot be used to ‘defund’ the agency.”

“If a statute were enacted which prohibited appropriated funds from being used for some specified purposes, then the relevant funds would be unavailable to be obligated or expended for those purposes,” the new CRS report counters.

Essentially, this means that agencies can’t operate independently of legislative oversight, regardless of the source of the funds.

 The news has come as a relief to conservative opponents of the executive order.“Of course that’s what CRS says,” a congressional GOP aide told TheDC. ”What’s the point of even having a Congress if that’s not the case? To argue otherwise is untrue and, frankly, ludicrous.”

“CRS confirmed what we all knew to be true: Congress can absolutely use the appropriations process to block President Obama’s executive actions,” Heritage Action for America communications director Dan Holler told TheDC. “Now the only question is whether the Republican-controlled House will take action when they return in December.”

“The American people’s Congress has the power and every right to deny funding for unworthy activities,” Sessions said Thursday. “It is a routine and constitutional application of congressional power. There is no question that Congress has the power to block this expenditure and no doubt that it can be done. If such language is not included, the measure will be subject to the same 60-vote threshold in the Senate and simple majority in the House.”

‘OPEN REBELLION’: CHAOS IF REPUBLICANS DON’T WITHHOLD FUNDING FOR OBAMA EXECUTIVE AMNESTY

Leave a comment

This is from Bretibarts Big Government.

The Republicans better understand this message we are delivering loud and clear, Either you are for the American people or You are against the American people.

If your against the American people May God have mercy on your rotten souls as We the people sure as Hell will not.

https://social.newsinc.com/media/json/69017/28177156/singleVideoOG.html?videoId=28177156&type=VideoPlayer/16×9&widgetId=2&trackingGroup=69017

Conservatives say that Republican leaders, including House Speaker John Boehner and incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, will be “complicit” in President Barack Obama’s planned executive amnesty if they don’t pull out all the stops to block him.

They warn that chaos is around the corner if that’s how it goes down, even though they’d much rather have Republican leaders fight the president alongside them.

“Fight or be complicit in lawlessness,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told Breitbart News, is the message to congressional GOP leaders on Obama’s amnesty.

If Republicans move forward with the plan from House Appropriations Committee chairman Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY) to fund the entire government—including Obama’s executive amnesty, which the president is set to announce on Thursday night—in an omnibus spending bill, a Senate GOP aide told Breitbart News conservatives will spread chaos across Washington.

“If Obama announces executive amnesty and the House passes an omnibus with no language blocking it, there will be no Senate vote, because conservatives will burn down the Capitol,” the aide said. When asked to clarify if he was serious they’d burn the building to the ground—or if he was speaking metaphorically—the aide said “open rebellion.”

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), one of many Republicans conference-wide who will be helping lead the charge to force Boehner to stop Obama, told Breitbart News that Republicans must stand and fight—and that they can and must win.

“Even though around three-quarters of voters this year opposed the idea of executive amnesty, President Obama is apparently going to announce his new royal amnesty decree before going to Las Vegas to promote it,” Gohmert said, adding:

Perhaps ‘Caesar’s Palace’ is an appropriate venue for the American Caesar’s regal proclamation that gambles away jobs for Americans. As an equal branch of government where legislation must originate, Congress must either fight it or we will be complicit in this amnesty as royal subjects and the democratic republic will be gone. Now is the time that Republicans need to stand strong for the principles for which the majority of American voters sent them to Washington. Dissatisfaction with the White House and Senate over amnesty issues was a significant reason the American people added Republican seats in the House and Republican control of the Senate. Congress must protect the Constitution and the American public from such a decree from Mt. Olympus that declares a state of lawlessness in America.

Elsewhere, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wrote for Politico that Obama is “not a monarch” and Congress can’t allow him to succeed:

The Constitution designs a system of checks and balances for our nation, and executive amnesty for immigrants here illegally unilaterally decreed from the White House would seriously undermine the rule of law. Our founders repeatedly warned about the dangers of unlimited power within the executive branch; Congress should heed those words as the President threatens to grant amnesty to millions of people who have come to our country illegally.

Incoming Senate Budget Committee chairman Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said that Congress should fund the government while blocking funding for this “unconstitutional” act by Obama:

President Obama previously said he could not issue an executive amnesty because ‘I’m the President of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed.’ Well, apparently we now have an ‘Emperor of the United States.’ President Obama’s immigration order would provide illegal immigrants with the exact benefits Congress has repeatedly rejected: Social Security numbers, photo IDs and work permits—which will allow them to now take jobs directly from struggling Americans in every occupation. Congress must not allow this unconstitutional action. That means Congress should fund the government while ensuring that no funds can be spent on this unlawful purpose.

George Rasley, the editor of Viguerie’s ConservativeHQ, told Breitbart News Republicans have a mandate from the voters to stop Obama.

“Obama’s extra-constitutional attempt to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens flies in the face of the results of the 2014 wave,” Rasley said. “If the Nov. 4 election was a demand for anything, it was a demand by grassroots American voters for a return to constitutional government.”

Heritage Action spokesman Dan Holler told Breitbart News that any long-term funding bill is a “blank check” for Obama’s amnesty.

“Heritage Action welcomes creative thinking from congressional Republicans so long as creativity is not a synonym for inaction or delay,” Holler said. “Congress must use every tool at their disposal to block the President’s executive amnesty. A long-term funding bill is little more than a blank check for amnesty.”

Glyn Wright, the executive director of Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum, told Breitbart News that since immigration is such an important issue Republicans need to fight this and block Obama. “Immigration is the issue that defines all other issues, and the American people know it,” Wright said. “That’s why the President waited until after the midterm elections to take this action, and why voters gave the GOP a historical majority in the House and control of the Senate. If the Republicans want to be seen as viable and worthy of the power they have been given, they must stop this unprecedented and lawless act.”

Schlafly herself added that Obama is offending Americans with the executive order.

“Every action Obama is taking on amnesty is illegal, unconstitutional and offensive to the majority of the American voters,” Schlafly said.

A letter being circulated around the conservative movement and sent to all Republican members of Congress—signed by top conservative luminaries, including Ronald Reagan’s Attorney General Ed Meese, former Rep. David McIntosh, and more—calls on Republicans to use the power of the purse to block Obama’s amnesty. Other signers of the letter include Heritage Action CEO Mike Needham, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, ForAmerica chairman Brent Bozell, RedState’s Erick Erickson, Marjorie Dannenfelser of Susan B. Anthony List, former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli of the Senate Conservatives Fund, Tea Party Patriots’ Jenny Beth Martin, Let Freedom Ring’s Colin Hanna, Eagle Forum’s Phyllis Schlafly, ConservativeHQ’s Richard Viguerie, Conservative Leadership PAC’s Morton Blackwell, former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, former Reagan advisers Becky Norton Dunlop and Kenneth Cribb, Jr., Al Regnery, former Rep. Bob McEwen, and others.

“Passage of a long term Continuing Resolution (CR) would rob newly elected members of the ability to begin making spending decisions and would remove a key leverage point they will have with President Obama to further pursue our agenda,” they write.

“Conservatives will be watching these next few weeks very closely,” they add. “We urge you to begin earning the trust placed in you by passing a short term CR, stopping President Obama’s planned executive amnesty, going home, and returning in January to pursue the agenda that the American people sent you here to enact.”

Blackwell, the former Ohio Secretary of State, and others from that group have drafted a one-page resolution they hope the House will pass this week condemning Obama’s amnesty plans.

The Concurrent Resolution Of Congress they are pushing for a vote on cites Article I, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution which reads: “All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and a House of Representatives.” The resolution reads:

And whereas it is the Constitutional right and duty of the Congress of the United States to exercise vigilance in protecting this sovereign legislative power from any encroachments by other branches of government or any other source whatsoever; And whereas Barack Obama, the President of the United States, may issue a purported Executive Order that has the effect of changing the law and policy of the United States relative to the status of millions of illegal aliens currently residing within the United States; And whereas his argument that he must act because the Congress has not acted regarding the status has no valid standing in law under the Constitution.

The resolution concludes by saying that Congress considers whatever executive action about to be taken “null and void.”

“It is the sense of Congress that this purported Executive Order is a usurpation of the legislative power vested solely in the Congress of the United States and, as such, is null and void,” the resolution says. “And be it further resolved that the Congress of the United States will use all of its Constitutional powers, particularly the power of the purse, to prevent the implementation of the provisions of said Executive Order.”

Gaston Mooney, the executive director of the Conservative Review, told Breitbart News that when Obama does the executive order, Republicans should not allow a single dime of taxpayer money to be spent implementing it.

“Republicans campaigned and overwhelmingly won on the promise to stop Obama’s agenda; now we will see whether or not they will make good on that promise or if they try and propose a bait and switch, hoping the American people won’t notice,” Mooney said in an email. “Stopping Obama’s lawless amnesty starts first with Republicans standing up.”

The three things Conservative Review is working to ensure happen are that Republicans use the upcoming budget fight—and they believe that there shouldn’t even be a short-term continuing resolution that funds the executive amnesty until the newly elected Senate GOP majority takes over—to stop him, that they block his judicial nominations and they fight him from governorships across the country.

Conservatives are making headway in this battle to get Republicans to fight Obama over this. On Wednesday, Reps. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and Mike McCaul (R-TX)—the chairmen, respectively, of the House Judiciary and House Homeland Security committees—wrote to Obama promising Republicans will use every power they have to stop this if he goes through with it. They write:

Instead of proceeding with ill-advised executive action, we implore you to work with Congress to enact legislation to address our broken immigration system. We strongly urge you to respect the Constitution and abandon any unconstitutional, unilateral executive actions on immigration. Let’s secure the border, enforce our immigration laws in the interior of the United States, and build a broad consensus for immigration reform. Otherwise, as the chairmen of the committees with oversight over border security and our nation’s immigration laws, we will be forced to use the tools afforded to Congress by the Constitution to stop your administration from successfully carrying out your plan.

McConnell has said that “it’s always appropriate” for Congress “use the power of the purse.” He adds he expects House Republicans to soon deliver a short-term continuing resolution to fund the government until early next year when his Senate Republicans take over.

“Yeah, we expect the House to go first,” McConnell said. “And I anticipate supporting whatever the House sends over. And so, I think we’re going to wait and see how the House handles this…But our goal is to fund the government.”

Even Boehner has gotten a bit tougher with his rhetoric, though he’s still not committing to using all options–such as blocking funding—to stop Obama.

“If ‘Emperor Obama’ ignores the American people and announces an amnesty plan that he himself has said over and over again exceeds his Constitutional authority, he will cement his legacy of lawlessness and ruin the chances for Congressional action on this issue – and many others,” Boehner spokesman Michael Steel said in an email to reporters on Wednesday that circulated a post on the Speaker’s website that references 22 separate times Obama himself said he doesn’t have the authority to do this.

 

WOW: “Abortion Barbie” Wendy Davis Didn’t Even Win Women In Texas

This is from The Daily Surge.

It seems the women of Texas knows who is declaring war on women and it is not the Republicans.

Nobody thought Wendy Davis stood a snowball’s chance in hell when she announced her candidacy for Texas governor.

Most people believe she ran because of the buzz she garnered after her ridiculous 11-hour filibuster of a bill that would ban abortions beyond 20 weeks.

The liberal media filled her up with false hope. She was supposed to be the poster child for national Democrats who have been perpetuating their phony “War on Women” campaign.

Wendy Davis was going to be the pink shoe-wearing super hero to save all Texas women. But she couldn’t even get a majority of women to vote for her.

According to the exit polls, Greg Abbott won women by more than 9 points. Abbott garnered support from 67 percent of white women and 39 percent of Latino women.

Apparently Texas women hate, er, women?

Screen Shot 2014-11-05 at 12.09.54 AMElsewhere, Republicans in Iowa just elected their first female Senator Joni Ernst. Her victory also blows the crap out of the ridiculous narrative that Republicans are waging war on women, not to mention Utah electing the GOP’s first female black candidate in Mia Love.

Hillary Clinton has to be somewhere crapping in her diaper.

REPORT: EXEC AMNESTY ‘NO MATTER HOW BIG A SHELLACKING’ FOR DEMS

Leave a comment

This is from Breitbart TV.

It sounds like Obama is daring the Republicans to impeach him.

ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jon Karl reported that according to WH officials “the president will move forward with an executive order on immigration reform “no matter how big a shellacking Democrats get tonight” during ABC’s Election coverage on Tuesday.

Karl said “White House officials are saying that you can expect the president to set an aggressive, and defiant tone tomorrow. You’re not going to see any mea culpas, no big firings, no change in direction.”

He added “officials tell me the president is prepared to aggressively pursue his agenda using his power of executive authority, where he can’t work with Congress, and the big one is going to be on immigration reform. White House officials tell me that the president will move forward with an executive order on immigration reform no matter how big a shellacking Democrats get tonight.”

6 Reasons We Need To Help Republicans Take The Senate Even Though They Stink

Leave a comment

This is from Town Hall.

 

 

The Democratic Party is systematically destroying America and other than Barack Obama, no one deserves more blame for it than Harry Reid. He may be an excellent politician who runs circles around Mitch McConnell the way Bugs Bunny baffles Elmer Fudd, but he’s also a habitually dishonest, mean-spirited sociopath who cares absolutely nothing about the good of the country. The Democrat senators who put Reid into power and went along with Obama deserve to be punished for what they’ve done.

Certainly, that doesn’t mean the Republicans are wonderful. Just the fact that they allow themselves to be led by a mediocrity like Mitch McConnell tells you a lot. So does the fact that Ted Cruz is talked about as if he’s this wild-eyed, radical conservative. Don’t get me wrong: Ted Cruz is my favorite senator and I can’t say enough good things about him. But really, what makes Ted Cruz so special? That he’s smart? Aren’t senators supposed to be smart? Is he unique because he effectively attacks the Democrats? Aren’t Republicans supposed to do that? Is Ted Cruz a stand-out because he behaves as if he believes in all the things he said on the campaign trail? Really? Aren’t Republicans supposed to believe in the things they say on the campaign trail? In a sense, the most remarkable thing about Ted Cruz is that he IS so remarkable despite doing little more than what the average Republican in the Senate should be doing in the first place.

That being said, while we shouldn’t put the Senate Republicans up on a pedestal, we also shouldn’t underestimate how bad the Senate Democrats have become. So, why is it so important to beat the Democrats?

1) It helps check Obama’s power: Politically, what we’ve seen in recent years is that the party out of power benefits tremendously from hunkering down, saying “no” and refusing to cooperate. For the most part, the Republican Party has done just that. The problem with that approach is Barack Obama doesn’t care about the Constitution, doesn’t care about the law and is acting more like a king than a President. We’ve desperately needed the Republican Party to do more than meekly complain about it and they just haven’t stepped up to the plate because they’ve adopted the, “We’re out of power, so the best thing we can do is nothing” mentality. On the other hand, if Republicans control the House and the Senate, they will quite rightfully be expected to DO SOMETHING when Obama overreaches. How much will they do? How effective will they be? That’s hard to say with two pitiful sad sacks like John Boehner and Mitch McConnell in charge, but you can be guaranteed they’ll step it up simply because the media, the establishment and the general populace will now join grassroots conservatives in expecting them to take action. A Republican Party that is just as timid in the majority as they are in the minority has nothing to offer the country and they know that.

2) It enables Republicans to set the table for 2016: The House Republicans have more than 350 bills that have died in the Senate without a vote; yet they’re the ones getting blamed for being obstructionists. If the GOP controls the Senate, suddenly Democrats are going to have to start taking tough votes again. That means they’ll have to vote against popular legislation or even better, they’ll go along with Republicans, pass it and send it up to Obama. Then either Obama signs the bills into law or he becomes the obstructionist, vetoes the bills and gives our 2016 candidate strong issues to run on. Moreover, he puts the Democrat candidate in a tough spot. Do Democrats make their supporters angry by saying that the Republicans were right and Obama was wrong to veto the bill or do they continue to support his unpopular vetoes? Let’s leave their 2016 Presidential candidate defending an unpopular, obstructionist President while our candidate will have a readymade raft of popular issues to run on for once.

3) If we don’t get it done in 2014, we sure won’t get it done in 2016:This year, the number of Democrat senators up for reelection in red states is heavily tilted towards the Republican Party. In 2016, the math will run the other way and Republicans will have to defend 24 out of the 34 seats up for reelection. Moreover, most of those Democrat seats will be in safe districts while at least 10 of the Republican seats will likely be in competitive states. If Obama’s popularity continues to sink and we win the presidency, could we hold enough of those seats to keep the Senate? Yes, but obviously we need to pad our totals as much as possible this year to give us a chance to do that. If we’re going to have any kind of opportunity to move the ball forward on the deficit, Obamacare, foreign policy, taxes, protecting the 2nd Amendment or any of the other issues we care about, we’re going to need Republicans in the Senate that we can beat, threaten and cajole into doing the right thing.

4) It will improve the quality of GOP legislation: Putting Republicans in charge of the Senate will take a big excuse away from the Republicans on issues like immigration. Ironically, the reason the House leadership Republicans were so hell-bent on passing it this year was BECAUSE they feared the GOP would take over the Senate. Truthfully, they’d rather have a bad bill that codifies open borders and amnesty that they could blame on Harry Reid. Then, the line would have been something like, “We know it’s not the greatest bill, but what do you expect when we have to work with Harry Reid?” That same principle applies to Obamacare, the deficit and a number of other issues. If the GOP runs the House and the Senate, Republicans can’t take a show vote, then embrace some left-wing bill and blame it on the Democrats. Since the GOP leadership is comprised of country club Republican idiots, we still have to worry about the legislation they’ll pass, but at least we’ll be sure that it’ll be better than anything they could have done this year.

5) It’s a necessary rebuke of Obama: We all know that Democrats are never going to publicly admit that Barack Obama is the worst President in American history. However, even fanatically loyal, dumb Democrats can do basic addition and subtraction.
By the time Obamacare came up for a vote, the Democrats had control of the presidency, 60 seats in the Senate and 257 seats in the House. That is about as far as the scale can tip in their favor and so if the GOP ends up with overwhelming control in the House and a majority in the Senate, Obama will get the blame just as Jimmy Carter did for Ronald Reagan. Democrats can toss out all the propaganda they want, but if they know that moving way off to the Left will lead to crushing defeats at the ballot box, it will shake their nerve and they’re likely to be more moderate for a while out of fear. Like most Republican politicians, Democrat politicians care more about keeping their cushy jobs than anything else. That’s why we need to take some of those jobs away to change their behavior.

As an extra added bonus, it will give the Democrats a strong incentive to try to prevent Obama from further hurting the party with his outlandish executive orders. Will that slow him down? Maybe it will, maybe it won’t, but if he starts getting calls from senators, donors, activists, unions and the rest of the people he listens to telling him not to make any big moves, it may give him cold feet. Obama may not care about America, but even he doesn’t want to be remembered as another Jimmy Carter whose buffoonery ended up helping Republicans more than Democrats in the end

6) Senate Democrats need to be punished for what they’ve done: My days of telling people to vote for the “lesser of two evils” are over, but there are still times that you need to vote to punish the people in charge for doing the wrong thing. Are you going to let Democrats who voted for Obamacare get away with it? Are you going to reward them for enabling Barack Obama’s unconstitutional, un-American, and oftentimes illegal executive orders? When far left-wingers like Michelle Nunn in Georgia or Greg Orman in Kansas insult your intelligence by pretending not to be liberals, are you just going to take it? These people aren’t acting any differently than they would if their goal is to destroy the United States; so how can you just shrug that off? At a minimum, these Democrats who’ve hurt you, your children, and your country need to see their cushy jobs disappear for what their party has done to America.

Random thoughts on the passing scene:

I don’t know why we are spending our hard-earned money paying taxes to support a criminal justice system, when issues of guilt and innocence are being determined on television — and even punishment is being meted out by CNN’s showing the home and address of the policeman accused in the Ferguson, Missouri shooting.

One of the big differences between Democrats and Republicans is that we at least know what the Democrats stand for, whether we agree with it or not. But, for Republicans, we have to guess.

It is amazing how many otherwise sane people want Israel to become the first nation in history to respond to military attacks by restricting what they do, so that it is “proportionate” to the damage inflicted by the attacks.

Amid all the things being said on all sides about the massive, illegal influx of children from countries in Central America, we have yet to hear some American parent saying, “I don’t owe it to anybody to have my child exposed to diseases brought into this country, no matter what problems exist in other countries!”

Two headlines in the August 10th New York Times speak volumes about Barack Obama. The top headline reads: “Iraq Strikes May Last Months, Obama Says.” A secondary headline reads: “No Ground Force Will Be Sent, He Repeats.” Time was when enemy spies had to risk their lives to acquire such information. Now all they have to do is read the headlines.

It is amazing how many people think they are doing blacks a favor by exempting them from standards that others are expected to meet.

If you want to know who was the greatest baseball player of all time, please check out the pitcher who led the American League with the lowest earned run average in 1916. He was the only ballplayer who could do it all, including stealing home.

British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain was a hawk compared to Barack Obama. At least Chamberlain was building up his country’s military forces while trying to appease Hitler. Obama is cutting back on our military forces while our enemies around the world are expanding theirs.

Medical authorities who are trying to reassure us that safeguards will prevent the spread of Ebola in the United States may be unconvincing to those of us who remember how they lied about whether AIDS could be transmitted by blood transfusions. They may be telling the truth this time, but credibility is one of those things that are far easier to maintain than to repair.

Too many people in Washington are full of themselves, among other things that they are full of.

However common it may be in politics to “split the difference” when making decisions, it is unconscionable to send American troops into a war zone in numbers too small to defend themselves. The smug and smirking contempt of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, when he began testifying before a Congressional committee in the IRS scandal investigation, told us all we needed to know, even if we never get the information that was supposedly “lost” when Lois Lerner’s computer supposedly crashed.

Ted Williams’ great career was interrupted twice by military service — once during World War II and again when he returned to the Marine Corps during the Korean war. What sports star today would voluntarily interrupt a Hall of Fame career to go fight for America, after having already served in the military?

Despite TV pundits who say that public opinion polls show Barack Obama is in trouble, the president is not in the slightest trouble. He is doing whatever he feels like doing, regardless of the Constitution and regardless of how many people don’t like it, because he is virtually impeachment-proof. The country is in huge trouble and real danger because of his policies, but he is not.

One of the most frustrating aspects of watching television news programs that feature debates is the guests who sidestep any question that gets to the heart of the issue at hand, and just go off on a tangent, repeating their standard talking points. That’s usually a good time to change the channel or turn off the TV.

If politics were like sports, we could ask Israel to trade us Benjamin Netanyahu for Barack Obama. Of course, we would have to throw in trillions of dollars to get Israel to agree to the deal, but it would be money well spent.
