The White House on Wednesday released 94 pages of emails between top administration and intelligence officials who helped shape the talking points about the attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that the CIA would provide to policymakers in both the legislative and executive branches.
The documents, first reported by THE WEEKLY STANDARD in articles here and here, directly contradict claims by White House press secretary Jay Carney and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that the revisions of those talking points were driven by the intelligence community and show heavy input from top Obama administration officials, particularly those at the State Department.
The emails provide further detail about the rewriting of the talking points during a 24-hour period from midday September 14 to midday September 15. As THE WEEKLY STANDARD previously reported, a briefing from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence shows that the big changes came in three waves – internally at the CIA, after email feedback from top administration officials, and during or after a meeting of high-ranking intelligence and national security officials the following morning.
Read the rest here.
Anyone with half a brain knew that the ‘talking points’ coming out of the White House and the State Department was pure male bovine excrement.
Why did it take so long for this information to go viral?

To Sheila Jackson-Lee, With Love
by Sam Janney
Dear Ms. Jackson-Lee,
It has come to our attention, the conservative bloggers of the world that you would prefer if we “shut up.” We had no idea that we were in any way offending your delicate, tender sensibilities and from the bottom of our hearts, we are sorry.
We are sorry you are so obviously intimidated by our conservative voice that you feel the need to tell us to “shut up.” Honestly, being strong supporters of the first amendment we thought you, as a representative of the people, would be as well. You have been known to voice an abundance of ignorant statements, and while we snicker a bit at you, we would never insinuate in any way that you should shut up. Okay, we might wish you would educate yourself before opening your big mouth, but we would never just blatantly express such disdain for you, especially on television.
We are sorry you feel the need to continue down the path of division, propagating racism and class warfare. Granted, we know you have an agenda to push (all politicians do), but it saddens us that this is your passion. In the same interview where you told conservative bloggers to “shut up,” you also said that it shouldn’t be “Buy American,” it should be “Buy African American.” Personally, we feel that regardless of race, color, sex or creed, we are all Americans and are perplexed that you would want to segregate the black community as part of your agenda.
We are sorry you can’t see the bigger picture when it comes to challenges facing our great country, and would rather focus on creating a climate where conservatives are the bad guys and liberals are the victims. While we focus on the ability of all people to succeed on their own accord, you continue to push the idea that government is the answer to all our woes and even go as far as to tell people they are entitled and should go out of their way to become dependent via government programs. This is ironic because ultimately government dependence creates a cycle of poverty, trapping people and in a way, enslaving them. You of all people, who recently said you “Stand here as a freed slave…” should understand this more than anyone.
Finally, we are sorry you clearly don’t understand what it is we’re trying to accomplish. We are only a threat if you or your colleagues are lying to the American people, stealing from them or behaving in a way that we find unacceptable in an elected official. If you are honest, forthcoming and truly working under the Constitution to do what is right for this country, you need never worry about us.
Of course, since you wouldn’t understand the Constitution if we explained it to you with puppets and crayons, then yes, you should worry. We’ll see you in the blog-o-sphere.
The Benghazi Talking Points
And how they were changed to obscure the truth
Even as the White House strove last week to move beyond questions about the Benghazi attacks of Tuesday, September 11, 2012, fresh evidence emerged that senior Obama administration officials knowingly misled the country about what had happened in the days following the assaults. The Weekly Standard has obtained a timeline briefed by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence detailing the heavy substantive revisions made to the CIA’s talking points, just six weeks before the 2012 presidential election, and additional information about why the changes were made and by whom.
As intelligence officials pieced together the puzzle of events unfolding in Libya, they concluded even before the assaults had ended that al Qaeda-linked terrorists were involved. Senior administration officials, however, sought to obscure the emerging picture and downplay the significance of attacks that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. The frantic process that produced the changes to the talking points took place over a 24-hour period just one day before Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, made her now-famous appearances on the Sunday television talk shows. The discussions involved senior officials from the State Department, the National Security Council, the CIA, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the White House.
The exchange of emails is laid out in a 43-page report from the chairmen of five committees in the House of Representatives. Although the investigation was conducted by Republicans, leading some reporters and commentators to dismiss it, the report quotes directly from emails between top administration and intelligence officials, and it includes footnotes indicating the times the messages were sent. In some cases, the report did not provide the names of the senders, but The Weekly Standard has confirmed the identities of the authors of two critical emails—one indicating the main reason for the changes and the other announcing that the talking points would receive their final substantive rewrite at a meeting of top administration officials on Saturday, September 15.
New York governor Andrew Cuomo is launching a $140 million ad campaign to lure businesses to the Empire State. The campaign, “New York State Open for Business,” is being funded with money drawn from federal disaster aid received in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and from the Power Authority and Energy Research and Development Authority, according to the New York Times. (emphasis mine)
Excuse me, but I was under the impression that our tax dollars that go to aid the folks who suffer from disasters, natural or otherwise, were meant to actually AID those people, NOT be spent on ridiculous ads, that are nothing more than total BS! Have you seen any of those ads? Make me want to throw things at the idjit box!
Seriously, we should be very worried about this guys health. If you’ll remember, he’s the same U.S. Representative who was worried about Guam tipping over with added Marines. (video) It may not be apparent to his constituents, but it is VERY obvious to the rest of the thinking world….there is something VERY wrong with this guy! And we pay his salary!
I’ve highlighted the names of the “gang of eight” so you won’t forget them. If you want to read this bill, also known as JOLT ACT of 2013, you can read the whole text of gobbledy gook here. While there are a few issues that MUST be addressed, and should have been a LONG time ago, the is a lot in this bill that shouldn’t even be considered! At some point, I just might go through the whole 844 pages, and address those, but for now, do your own homework!
IMHO, they should have made issues addressed in the Congressional Findings (Section 2) THE bill, and left the rest for another time, when we are back on our feet, so to speak.
(1) The passage of this Act recognizes that the primary tenets of its success depend on securing the sovereignty of the United States of America and establishing a coherent and just system for integrating those who seek to join American society.
Our ‘sovereignty’ has become a really bad joke. And as for ‘integrating’? Waving the Mexican, or other foreign flags, DEMANDING ‘rights’, is not integrating. Refusing to learn the language of the land is not integrating. Bringing ‘third world’ habits and policies and insisting WE adapt to YOUR way, is not integrating.
(2) We have a right, and duty, to maintain and secure our borders, and to keep our country safe and prosperous. As a nation founded, built and sustained by immigrants we also have a responsibility to harness the power of that tradition in a balanced way that secures a more prosperous future for America.
Well, our borders are NOT secure, and we are NOT safe. The drug cartels have made themselves quite at home in cities like Chicago, a place where murder is so common place, with some of the strictest ‘gun control’ laws…in the world…it has become a poster child for how NOT to run a city, county….country!
These are the two major issues that should have been addressed, and the rest left to other bills, broken down individually, instead of lumping the whole chit works into one bill. Congress has a real bad habit of throwing in crap, and this bill is no different. Address these issues FIRST. Get the border secured, which will take YEARS, and remove the criminal element from out streets. Shoot the sons of beeches if necessary, but get them away from our children. Does it make sense for a legal citizen, or resident, to fear for their lives every time they walk out their front doors? HELL NO! So, why aren’t those in Washington concerned about US? Because it’s all politics!
No self respecting member of the U.S. Senate would EVER introduce such garbage. Then again, we have no self respecting representatives in the government anymore, and they SURE don’t respect us! WE want our borders secured, immediately, but this is not a priority. WE want our streets safe from criminals, and criminals removed, but this also, is not a priority.
What is the priority? Votes. 11 MILLION new voters, the majority of whom will make sure we continue to lose our God given, Constitutionally guaranteed, liberties by assuring that the Democrats>liberals>progressives>socialists>commies will have a strangle hold on power.
This bill, as is, is something this country can’t afford, financially, or morally. I’ve heard so many spewing on the idjit box how “no one is an illegal person’. Well, they are wrong. Being a person isn’t illegal. Breaking into someone else’s home, expecting them to feed, clothe, take you to the doctor, and pay for all your wants and whims IS illegal, is IS a crime. Handing over the keys to the house is just plain ignorant!
“Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-TX) once noted that three groups spend other people’s money: thieves, children, and politicians—and all three need supervision.” Politicians have shown themselves to be both childish, and thieves. It’s way past time for WE, The People to regain control of our country, and OUR money! Any politician that fails to uphold his/her oath of office should be run out on a rail! WE need to put the fear of God back into them, and the fear of us!

American Families Cannot Afford the Cost of Amnesty
Derrick Morgan – The Foundry
Our nation is going broke, and now is not the time to increase burdens on American families.
The Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act (S. 744)—commonly called the “Gang of Eight bill” after the eight Senators who came up with it, Charles Schumer (D-NY), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Michael Bennet (D-CO), John McCain (R-AZ), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Lindsey Graham (R-SC)—includes amnesty for some 11 million unlawful immigrants. That amnesty would further burden taxpayers and weaken our fiscal situation. Congress should not rush to pass the bill without understanding the cost to the American taxpayer, especially when key research identifying and calculating those costs is nearly complete.
We have more than $12 trillion in public debt and tens of trillions of dollars more in unfunded obligations that we have no way to afford, thanks to promises made by past and present politicians. With this in mind, today’s political leaders must consider the fiscal impact of amnesty and a path to citizenship that would enable millions of unlawful immigrants to qualify for costly welfare and entitlement programs.
…no, you can’t be a Christian AND a Democrat!
Just another “Democrat activist” that can be added to the list of left wing terrorists.
Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee claimed Friday that he sent tweets to pop singer Cyndi Lauper, including one calling her “hot,” and deleted them in order to draw the attention of a website that monitors politicians’ deleted tweets. The website would then publicize the tweets to Lauper, Cohen claimed, fooling the media and drawing more attention to a White House concert at which Lauper performed.
Ummm… ok…if you say so.
The Tennessee Democrat earlier this week sent two tweets to Lauper, who was performing at the Memphis Soul event at the White House Tuesday night.
“@cyndilauper great night,couldn’t believe how hot u were.see you again next Tuesday.try a little tenderness,” read one.
“Cyndi,Wow what a night!See you next Tuesday and Try a little tenderness again!Wow!What a special night.Thanks Steve,” read the other.
Well, we know of at least one person who got an invite to the big shindig. Wonder how many with an “R” behind their names were invited? Hmmm…. Tuesday night? Is this an indication of a ‘hot date’, or are the Obama’s throwing another lavish party, at our expense, again? Well, honestly, I don’t care if Cohen has the hots for Lauper or not.
Yep…whatever trips yer trigger!
Cohen deleted those tweets, but not before they were picked up by the Sunlight Foundation’s Politwoops website and broadcast by media outlets, many of which noted the “hot” reference.
Cohen has gotten in trouble on Twitter before. In February, Politwoops disclosed that Cohen had deleted tweets expressing love to a young woman whom the lawmaker admitted was a daughter he recently learned he had fathered.
On Friday, Cohen quickly called a press conference in his office to say the Lauper tweets were just a ruse and a form of payback to those who reported on the tweets to his daughter.
To be perfectly honest, I thought Cohen was gay. Not to say that a homosexual can’t have children, cuz I know of a few who have had them…well, not them personally, since they are male (what a viral video THAT would be…heh), but fathered children. Oh, you know what I mean. It doesn’t matter one whit if he is, or isn’t, he’s still a Democrat>liberal>progressive>socialist>commie. His orientation is irrelevant. I do, however, find it highly amusing that one of his heroes is John F. Kennedy, an extremely conservative Democrat…back when there were such things.
On Friday, Cohen quickly called a press conference in his office to say the Lauper tweets were just a ruse and a form of payback to those who reported on the tweets to his daughter.
He read from the following statement:
“Two months ago, my family was personally hurt and victimized by sensationalized, fact-less speculation masquerading as journalism. I hope this serves to bring attention to the need for journalistic integrity as well as encouraging everyone to watch the spectacular and hot performances of Memphis music.”
Well, he’s not married…. never has been, so what family was he referring to in this statement? I doubt if his brothers care one way or the other. His daughter perhaps? Well, she’s a big girl, I’m sure she can deal with it, especially since Daddy is a ‘public figure’. His explanation doesn’t quite cut it, but, if true, then, he is extremely childish and petty.
The United States has decided to delay a long-planned missile test scheduled for next week out of California “to avoid any misperception or miscalculation”, given tensions with North Korea, a senior US defence official has said.
The unusual precaution by the US follows a barrage of hostile rhetoric from North Korea – including the threat of open war – that has created jitters in South Korea’s financial markets.
The US decision will delay the test of the Minuteman III intercontinental missile, which had been scheduled for next week out of Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
“This is the logical, prudent and responsible course of action to take,” the official said on Saturday, speaking on condition of anonymity.
Hell, I’d wanna be anonymous too if I was ‘reporting’ that the Obama administration was afraid of Lil’ Kim. Americans don’t back down, but I guess someone forgot to tell this current bunch up in D.C. So, now, this crazier than bat chit pip squeak has a ‘victory’.
The Defense Department came under fire Thursday for a U.S. Army Reserve presentation that classified Catholics and Evangelical Protestants as “extremist” religious groups alongside al Qaeda and the Ku Klux Klan.
The presentation detailed a number of extremist threats within the U.S. military, including white supremacist groups, street gangs, and religious sects.
The presentation identified seventeen religious organizations in a slide titled “religious extremism.” They include al Qaeda, Hamas, the Filipino separatist group Abu Sayyaf, and the Ku Klux Klan, which the slide identifies as a Christian organization.
“Religious extremism is not limited to any single religion, ethnic group, or region of the world,” the slide explains, in language that closely resembles the text of a Wikipedia page on “extremism.”
So, Chuck Hagel, Ashton B. Carter, General Martin E. Dempsey, and Admiral James A. Winnefeld, Jr. lumps me in with murderous cult thugs, and the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party, eh? Did this originate with them, or was it their boss, Barack Hussein Obama, who came up with this comparison? NO, the KKK has never been Christian. Just because some of these animals use a cross on their sheets doesn’t make them Christian. I can wear a shirt with , but that don’t make me a Ferrari! I don’t know of any Catholics (these days), or evangelicals, who are blowing themselves up in the name of some fake god, attempting to FORCE people to convert to their way of thinking. And we won’t even go into the KKK’s history of violence. That been WELL documented, time and time again. NOT ONE OF THEM ARE CHRISTIAN. How DARE these supposed ‘defenders of freedom’ lump followers of Christ with a cult that promotes murder of men, women, and children!!
“Men and women of faith who have served the Army faithfully for centuries shouldn’t be likened to those who have regularly threatened the peace and security of the United States,” said Col. Ron Crews, a retired Army chaplain and the executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty.
“It is dishonorable for any U.S. military entity to allow this type of wrongheaded characterization,” Crews said in a news release.
Crews also criticized the presentation for citing the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center to support its findings.
The SPLC is one of the biggest hate groups in the country, promoting hate, while claiming to promote tolerance. Well, my tolerance is at an end with these evil spawn of Satan! For the Defense Department to use information provided by such a hateful bunch to demean Catholics and evangelicals speaks VOLUMES about this entire administration! It is an embarrassment to the entire CIVILIZED Western World!
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
In case you aren’t familiar, that’s the first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence. It goes on to state:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Well now, it seems to me that we are at an impasse with the absurd bunch we have now. There’s another document, one I’m fairly sure those who hold public office at the present time is just as unfamiliar….it’s called the Constitution of The United States, and starts off with an equally important, if not more so, statement:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Neither are very long documents, and could be read in one sitting, if those who actually cared about the nation would bother to do so. In the second document, the powers that are delegated to the federal government, with the consent of the people, and not delegated to the individual states, are laid out in fairly plain language, seven separate articles. It should be quite easy for all those supposedly educated “representatives” to understand. I’m quite baffled as to why they are having such a problem.
Attached to this important document, the laws laid out by our Founders, is a Bill of Rights. The first 10 amendments were called this because those very brilliant men didn’t want any misunderstanding as to what the government could, and could NOT do. They are imperative to our continuance as a free nation! The first has been violated on a regular basis, yet no one seems to notice. Now we have a battle brewing for the second, which states, in plain English:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
I don’t know why Congress, and this administration is having such a problem with this one little sentence. It seems pretty cut and dried to me. As Richard Henry Lee stated in 1788:
“To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.”
Could it be stated any more plainly?
How about Patrick Henry, a firebrand, and quite outspoken patriot:
“The great object is that every man be armed.”
Even Alexander Hamilton, who was considered the ‘liberal’ of his day:
“The best we can help for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.”
Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, while not perfect, was a brilliant man:
“What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.”
The recent actions of this Congress, the administration, and several of the states, are in COMPLETE violation of the Constitution. We already have unconstitutional laws on the books, that are not enforced, or completely ignored. Think ‘Fast and Furious’. The proposals of each governmental body, federal, state, or local, are contrary to the intent of the 2nd Amendment. To disarm the population is to leave the citizenry helpless…against tyrants. We have examples of what happens when the government insists on disarming the people. Do we really want to repeat history? I certainly don’t!
No, I do not want any type of weapon in the hands of criminals and crazies, but that is an issue left to the local jurisdiction. Such proposals to limit the rights of law abiding citizens plays well into the hands of criminals. An unarmed becomes the victim. A well trained armed population is a crime fighting militia. There is NO “common sense” to any of the proposed laws of this administration, and it’s lackeys. The ‘we must do something’ mentality is based solely on emotion, and not logic. We are currently being invaded on several sides, not the least of which are criminal cartels. There groups who have quietly been infiltrating our society for the sole purpose of creating a completely different sort of society, one which is completely contrary to our foundings. I, for one, do not wish to be left helpless in the face of such catastrophes, do you? It seems our federal and state governments are pushing for just that scenario.
Guns, Background Checks, and Your Rights
Amy Payne – The Foundry
Harry Reid has a doozy of a gun plan, but President Obama wants to reassure you that it’s just “common sense.”
In a speech Wednesday, Obama said that “opponents of some of these common-sense laws have ginned up fears among responsible gun owners that have nothing to do with what’s being proposed and nothing to do with the facts, but feeds into this suspicion about government.”
As Heritage’s David Addington reminds us, America’s founders were the first to have this suspicion of government, and that’s part of the reason why they made certain that the Second Amendment protected our right to keep and bear arms. And as for the facts, the proposals from Senate Majority Leader Reid (D-NV) have major problems.
Rep. Don Young’s Inexcusable Racist Slur
So, I get the headline….
…then POOF! It vanishes, to be replaced by crazy North Koreans, all decked out in their fancy uniforms, bayonets attached. Lucky for me, I got enough sleep last night, I was able to find the story, from the UK Mail Online no less. Now you DON’T think Obama would allow his minions in the media to tell the truth about this, do you?
The number of Americans living in poverty has spiked to levels not seen since the mid 1960s, classing 20 per cent of the country’s children as poor.
Now, I gotta tell ya, this first paragraph really chaps my hide. Using children? Again? Children don’t have anything to do with the poverty, they are not the ones in poverty, it’s their parents, or caretakers, not the children themselves. Yes, the children do suffer because of Obama’s poverty pimping, but it’s the parents who are responsible for the children, not the government. I really wish they’d get this straight. Kids aren’t able to get jobs, unless they live in Bangladesh or some such place, not in the U.S.
It comes at a time when government spending cuts of $85 billion have kicked in after feuding Democrats and Republicans failed to agree on a better plan for addressing the national deficit.
I wonder why everyone fails to mention that the sequestration was Obama’s idea, and the Republicans called his bluff? Hmmmm… And yes, because it’s SO much more important for the Obamas to take their lavish vacations, investigate the sex life and penis size of New Zealand snails, studying algae in the Hawaiian Islands, and the list goes on and on, ad nauseam. do we really need to fund a robotic squirrel? I mean seriously? While our military is no longer being fed breakfast, Congress has no problem funding some of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard of in my life. Oh wait, there was that item when I was a kid in the paper I asked my dad about….”why do we need to find out why salmon swim upstream?” “Hon”, he said, “I have NO idea. That’s just what government does. It wastes our money, for no good reason.” Well, that short conversation taught me a lot. Nothing has changed since then. And THAT was in the 60s.
The cuts will directly affect 50 million Americans living below the poverty income line and reduce their chances of finding work and a better life.
Here’s a thought! How about we put congress on a budget, allow them to only introduce bills affecting ONE item at a time. Absolutely NO amendments that have nothing to do with issue at hand! I mean, wouldn’t that make more sense than for some yahoo in Podunk Michigan to add some ridiculous spending request for a rubber band museum to the all important, and only reason, for Congress to actually exist, the security of the United States of America? It’s too logical, I know. I’m just a foolish ol’ broad who has had to budget household for many years. I know you can’t spend more money than you earn, but then, I’m dealing with my own money. If I was dealing with someone else’s money, I think I would be even more cautious, but that’s just me.
As you read on in the article, you’ll see that it was private charities that did the most to aid people out of poverty, NOT the federal government, even though there are some federally funding involved, which there shouldn’t be at all. A charity is something people give to from their heart. I don’t think there are too many folks who give to the government from the heart. More like they are being robbed blind to fund a government that is tampering into areas they have no business being in!
Since Obama has taken office, this second time around, it’s my understanding the he signs into being an average 67 regulations a day. I might be off a bit, but not by much. Regulations that are putting businesses, well, out of of business. These are mostly small businesses that cannot afford the new regulations, and those self same businesses that employee a large majority of the American people. Now, tell me, if you have a 100 businesses, with an average of 25 employees, and they all have to shut down thanks to the ever increasing absurd regulations, that’s about 2500 people now out of work. Multiply that by thousands, all across the country, and yes, you are going to have families torn apart due to lack of funds to pay their bills, going on food stamps and whatever aid they can get.
The U.S. Census Bureau puts the number of Americans in poverty at levels not seen since the mid-1960s when President Lyndon B. Johnson launched the federal government’s so-called War on Poverty.
And so, it began. The Democrats supposedly wanted to life people OUT of poverty, when all they did was drive more in to it, on a regular basis, tearing apart the family unit. The number of out of wedlock births have sky rocketed, increasing the chance that those children will continue the cycle of poverty. In a 2010 study, that found that 29 percent of white children are born to unmarried women, 53 percent of Latinos and 73 percent of black children. Who has the highest unemployment rate in this country right now? I don’t think I need to tell you, you’ve heard it enough. In the urban cities, majority black, and majority run by Democrats, the number of unemployed is astronomical, by anyone’s definition. Why? Well, the policies of the poverty pimps, keep those folks on the plantation so they’ll keep voting for them, thinking they’ll get something for nothing, but that nothing is their self respect, and a lack of compassion for their fellow humans, failing education system, that teaches lies to the kids, convincing them they are owed something, and the churches are the biggest failures in these areas.
The answer to the problem? Well, it’s real simple. First, you get the government out of the way. Second, you put the federal government on a spending diet. The purpose of the federal government is laid out quite clearly in the U.S. Constitution. Anything past that, is unconstitutional. For way too long, our supposed representatives have been using that sacred document to wipe their collective hind ends. THIS MUST STOP….NOW!! Repeal all the absurd regulations that Obama and minions have placed on businesses. Safety, yes, paperwork, NO! KILL that damn ObamaCare crap, which is one of the biggest hindrances to small businesses, you know the ones that do most of the hiring. Get the government out of education! PERIOD! No ifs, and or buts! Removed government from the charity business. That also, is NOT their job. Before Johnson stuck his nose in, and decided the way to get blacks to vote Democrat, black families had problems yes, much discrimination going on, but they were better off than they are by today’s financial, and social, standards.
In order for anything to be accomplished, we must first remove the career politicians, on BOTH sides of the aisle! It will be a long road back to prosperity, but it CAN be done. And for the love of all that’s holy, we are NOT all equal! Some have talents that others don’t but we ALL have, or HAD, the equal opportunity to succeed, or fail, on our own merits. Some will succeed, some will not, but if the opportunity is there, and YOU don’t take it, it’s your own damn fault! And for the love of Pete, kill that damn political correctness crap! It’s destroying this nation in ways even I can’t imagine!
Let’s face a hard cold truth! The POTUS lies….a LOT! Congress lies….a LOT! And sadly, way too many buy into their lies, and the media aids in their lies. It’s way past time to return to the intent of citizen legislators. Serve your term, and go your ass back home to a REAL job and the REAL world!
No, not mine, although, at this point, it is questionable. Nope, I mean America. Are we near death as a free nation? Not that we’re all that free anymore, and I could go into the “I remember a time…” drone, but I’ll refrain.
Apparently, while I’ve been on death’s door, the Senate actually did something. Not that it was a good thing, but at least it was something! They passed a budget…for the first time in FOUR flippin’ YEARS!
I just love this little tidbit:
Had the budget failed, it would have been a significant setback for the Democrats and raised questions about the party’s ability to govern.
Are they freakin’ kidding me? The Dims don’t have a clue how to govern, they just know how to spend, buy votes from the gimme, entitlement minded ‘class’, enslave, and whine, blaming everyone and anyone for their inability to behave like grown ups. Pfft!
One amendment they tacked onto this so called budget is MORE taxes. Well, there’s a lot of taxes, but one in particular gets my goat. That would be the internet sales tax. For people like me, who live out in the middle of nowhere, internet shopping is a must. Ok, not all is a must, but quite a bit is, and we just don’t have the stores available nearby where I can purchase a few of those NEEDS. I suppose I could drive all the way to Memphis, or Nashville, to go shopping, but where’s the logic in that? Half of what I buy isn’t even offered in the state, so there would be no point! Not to mention the gas, wear and tear on my truck, which contributes to my ‘carbon footprint’. /snark
And who is one of the co-sponsors of that amendment? Why, our very one senior Senator, Lamar Alexander….RINO!
Twenty-six Republicans voted to endorse collecting Internet sales taxes and 19 Republicans voted against it. Democrats backed the proposal, 49-5.
Yeah…so much for those so called Republicans being low tax, small government types. “It’s not fair!” Boo freakin’ hoo! It’s called competition, and that’s what capitalism runs on…not fairness. MORONS!
What does this so called budget do to reduce the deficit? NOT A FLIPPIN’ THING! Nope, what it does, from what I can figure out, with my temperature induced stupor, is raise taxes on those who can ill afford it, so they can spend even more. Just brilliant! What do they care? It’s not THEIR money they are squandering! But they are getting paid, with OUR money, aren’t they. I think it’s a real good idea to go back to the original plan. All elected representatives get paid a per diem, and ONLY for those days that they actually are working IN D.C. Simple, yes? And no, it won’t be enough for them to live on, so they’ll have to go back to their districts and states, and get a REAL job. See how they like being taxed and regulated to death, eh?
“The content of the plan the majority has now approved demonstrates why they were unwilling to reveal it for so long: their proposal, once accurately understood, cannot be publicly defended,” says Sessions.
It’s obvious they are counting on the low/no information voters. I’m of the mind, unless you own property, and pay taxes, you are not eligible to vote! Sound harsh? It’s a harsh ol’ world, isn’t it! If you aren’t paying YOUR fair share, then why should you get a say in how others FAIR SHARE is spent?
I’d very much like to smack that smug smirk off his lying, cheating, face! Take a gander at the votes this morning. Anything that would have saved the taxpayers money, was rejected! Freakin’ thieves!!!
