Rock Meet Hard Place

You have to feel for the Republicans (unless your a Liberal then the only feeling you have is a seething hatred and nothing else) because they are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

UPDATE: Congressional Republicans have passed legislation to repeal Obamacare for the first time.

They know it’s an empty gesture because King Obama would never sign it.

But they have to do it to make the Rebel elements in the party happy.

But a lot of them also figure it’s a stunt to curry favor made by the disingenuous RINOs.

Both are likely true.

The Republicans spent so many years, especially under Jar Jar Boehner, being the Capitulation Weasals that they were no one quite believes them.

I know I don’t, YET. But it’s a good start.

The legislation would also significantly reduce taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood, redirecting those dollars to other women’s health clinics and organizations that aren’t languishing under an ethical cloud amid credible allegations of criminality.  (When poll question wording includes the important point that no women’s health funding is actually being cut, a majority of Americans support the move).  A recent undercover journalistic investigation exposed the abortion giant’s grisly practice of harvesting and selling body parts from late-term fetuses.  The videos show Planned Parenthood officials discussing the profits associated with this endeavor, as well as altering abortion procedures in order to obtain more intact organs — both of which are illegal.  A whistleblower also alleged that aborted children were picked apart and sold without their mother’s consent, another violation of the law.  Separately, Planned Parenthood has come under fire for its active promotion among young people of the notion that an individual’s ‘right’ to sexual pleasure supersedes his or her obligation to inform a partner of an HIV-positive status.  Republicans argue that taxpayers should not subsidize an organization that engages in these horrific abortion-related activities, and that pushes breathtakingly dangerous sexual ethics.

On Obamacare, the GOP says it is keeping its word to voters and fighting on behalf of the majority of Americans who continue to oppose the failing law.  A recent Gallup survey showed that uninsured Americans — who still number in the tens of millions — are most likely to disapprove of the so-called “Affordable” Care Act, largely because they can’t afford it.  The law has broken most of the biggest promises upon which it was sold, is actively harming real people, and is hurting the US economy, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office — which has also just concluded that repealing the law would substantially reduce deficits:

    “CBO: ObamaCare repeal bill would reduce deficits by half a trillion dollars over 10 years”
    — Mark Hemingway (@Heminator) January 5, 2016

The New York Times reported this week that many Americans have run the math and determined that paying Obamacare’s individual mandate tax is more affordable than paying through the nose for costly coverage that doesn’t even kick in until after consumers fork over thousands in out-of-pocket costs. Meanwhile, a recent survey finds that more than one-quarter of American households have struggled to pay medical bills over the past 12 months, several years into the full implementation of the “Affordable” Care Act.  Among this group, a majority was insured:

For the umpteenth time, coverage does not equal care — and being insured to does not mean your healthcare-related financial hardships disappear.  Indeed, under Obamacare, expensive compulsory coverage may very well exacerbate affordability woes.  Parting thought: Of the many worthy provisions in the soon-to-be-vetoed repeal legislation (exhibit A in the case for electing a Republican president), only one element will actually be the law of the land in 2016.  One of the bright spots of December’s ugly omnibus spending bill was an extension of the 2015 rollback of funding Obamacare bailout-style programs, which were designed to hide the true costs of the law for several years by defraying insurer losses with huge sums of taxpayer money.  This successful push to protect taxpayers and force policy transparency, spearheaded by Marco Rubio, constitutes a rare Obamacare win for conservatives.

But we have to start somewhere. King Obama will not relent on his Agenda one bit. He’s incapable of that.

So we have to force him to defend his Royal Majesty until we get someone that isn’t King Bernie or Queen Hillary.

Then maybe the American People have a chance. Maybe.

When RINO’s Attack

The Republican leadership in the House of Representatives has cut a deal with Senate Democrats on a government funding bill that will permit funding for the implementation of President Obama’s unilateral amnesty of as many as five million illegal aliens through at least Feb. 27, 2015.

Jar Jar Boehner and the RINO chickensh*ts didn’t have any courage or convictions, yet again.

They kicked the can down the road so they could have the rest of the month off. Gee, I wish my job was that easy.

Just feed your grandmother to the Raveneous BugBlatter Beast of Traal and call it a day. Victory is ours…

By contrast, the bill also uses Congress’s power of the purse to prohibit the administration from moving forward with regulations that would effectively outlaw incandescent light bulbs.

In short, the deal says: Yes to amnesty, no to light bulb regulations.

Well, incandescent bulbs are so much more important than ILLEGAL aliens and so much easier to stand on principle for on the weak minded Republican RINOs.

Maybe we should just start calling them the “Dem Bulb” Republicans. 🙂

House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers and Senate Appropriations Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski issued a joint statement applauding their “bipartisan” accomplishment in completing the spending deal.

And yet again, Bi-Partisan means the Democrats got everything they wanted and the RINO’s caved like a House made out of rice noodles.

The minority will be running Congress by February 2015. Bet on it. And when they are totally ineffectiveb the Democrats will blame them for it. Gee, I wonder if the RINOs could see that coming?

“After months of thorough, business-like, sometimes tough but always civil negotiations, we have reached a responsible, bipartisan and bicameral agreement on funding for government operations for 2015,” said Rogers and Mikulski in their statement. “This bill fulfills our constitutional duty to fund the government, preventing damage from shutdown politics that are bad for the economy, cost jobs and hurt middle class families.”

Civil? “Do what we want or you’ll get the blame for a government shutdown” is not “civil” but it is by-partisan. 🙂

The last shutdown cost 1 job. ONE!

So do you think the middle class will be hurt by 5 million new Welfare families and their cheap labor??

Naw..Never happen… 🙂

By cutting a deal with Senate Democrats to fund almost all of the government through the end of fiscal 2015, the House Republican leadership has taken away from the incoming Republican majorities in both houses of Congress any control over spending in those parts of the government through Sept. 30–and also any leverage that the Republican Congress could have derived from its power of the purse over these parts of the government to force the administration to alter its policies.

They effectively self-neutered themselves into ineffectiveness.

By cutting a deal to fund the Department of Homeland Security through Feb. 27, the House Republican leadership has given President Obama more than two and a half months to move forward with his unilateral amnesty of illegal aliens. During that time, Obama will be able to give illegal aliens visas and Social Security Numbers. (CNS)

No harm there, right? 🙂

So the RINOs have effectively done a self-mutilation so they can complain about how bad Obama is, but when  it comes to actually DOING ANYTHING, that’s the last thing they wanted to and now the last thing they will do.

It’s much safer than standing on principle. Don’t want to make the tyrannical bullies mad at you, now do we?

No Leadership. No initiative. Just play nice with the authoritarian-bomb wheedling psycho Democrats. You don’t want to upset them.

Let’s all just try and get along…

It will be a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing.

Then they we self-sabotage themselves for the 2016 Presidency with some milktoast “moderate” RINO and Queen Hillary and the Democrats will have a “miraculous” comeback and the Republicans will be history.

And they did it to themselves, and by extension, The American People.

But they saved the incandescent light bulb! Hurray!!

After all, that’s what they were elected for, right? 🙂

2004: Obama at DNC Convention–

“Now even as we speak, there are those who are preparing to divide us, the spin masters and negative ad peddlers who embrace the politics of anything goes.

“Well, I say to them tonight, there’s not a liberal America and a conservative America; there’s the United States of America.

“There’s not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there’s the United States of America.”

Flash forward….

The White House forged ahead Monday with yet another piece of its climate change agenda and bragged that Republicans are powerless to stop it.

The Agenda is The Agenda. The F*ck you, I’m the King Presidency continues unabated.

A presidential task force unveiled a report on how communities across the country can prepare for the effects of global warming. In all, the recommendations on “climate preparedness and resilience” could cost the federal government more than $100 billion to protect drinking water supplies, shore up coastlines against rising sea levels and take other preventive measures.

The recommendations and subsequent expenses are just two pieces of an ever-expanding slate of global-warming that is sure to come under the microscope when Republicans assume control of the Senate in January.

But legal analysts say the Republicans have little ammunition to fight back, short of shutting down the federal government to stop Environmental Protection Agency funding.

Which the Liberal Media will nuke them for.

White House officials, keenly aware of the executive power Mr. Obama holds on the issue of climate change, openly mocked incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his Republican colleagues.

“I believe the president will complete actions. It is a top priority of his and I don’t believe they can stop us,” White House counselor John Podesta told reporters on a conference call Monday. “Not withstanding Sen. McConnell making this a top priority to leave the status quo, to leave the air dirtier.”

Talking Points Alert!

White House officials on Monday also detailed some the expenses associated with the task force recommendations, including $88 billion for North Atlantic states to protect against rising sea levels, $6 billion for Midwestern states to combat rising temperatures and $40 billion to improve California’s drinking water systems.

The report comes on the heels of other recent steps, including Mr. Obama’s greenhouse gas emissions deal with China. Under that agreement, the U.S. pledged to cut its emissions by at least 26 percent by 2025, while China merely said it will cap emissions no later than 2030.

And China is laughing at the idiot who wants to cut his head off. Go ahead, the Chinese won’t stop you. They also won’t abide by any agreement, just like Obama doesn’t abide anything that isn’t on his Agenda other. Sucker!

The Agenda is The Agenda!

To meet that goal, the administration is relying on its unprecedented restrictions on power plant pollution — regulations that have led to accusations of a “war on coal” — and new auto fuel-efficiency standards, among other steps.

That will kill jobs, hurt the poor and the middle class, but hey it’s for your own good and besides will blame the victim (coal and fossil fuels) for it!!

Mr. Obama also is seeking $3 billion in taxpayer money to go toward a global climate fund aimed at helping developing nations boost their infrastructure.

Republicans appear ready to fight the president’s climate change agenda tooth and nail. After the GOP captured the Senate, Mr. McConnell, Kentucky Republican, said reining in the EPA would be a “top priority.”

He reiterated those comments over the weekend.

“They’ve been on a rampage all across the country. And I think coal is the most conspicuous example, but it’s happening in a lot of other areas and I think you’re going to see bipartisan support for trying to rein them in,” he told an audience in Frankfort, Kentucky.

The larger climate change debate is intertwined with the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline, the approval of which could come up for a Senate vote as early as Tuesday. The House already has passed legislation deeming the pipeline approved.

The White House, however, has hinted the president will veto the bill.

Of course he will. The Agenda is The Agenda.

A similar fate could await other Republican efforts to push back on Mr. Obama’s climate change goals, according to Thomas Lorenzen, a lawyer who until last year served in the Justice Department’s Environmental and Natural Resources Division, overseeing legal challenges to EPA rules and regulations.

“It’s pretty hard to see how” Republicans can stop the president, Mr. Lorenzen said. “The problem is they don’t have a veto-proof majority.”

Have you caught onto the arrogance of the Left yet?

Mr. Lorenzen said Republicans could seek to cut funding to the EPA’s implementation of controversial rules, such the power plant restrictions. But going down such a path could escalate quickly for Republicans.

“How do you pass that in a way that it won’t be vetoed? What you end up with is a potential [government] shutdown battle,” Mr. Lorenzen said.

Lawsuits already have been filed challenging the EPA’s authority to limit emissions; more are likely to be filed as regulations on existing power plants are finalized.

That kind of legal action represents the best hope of stopping the administration, analysts say.

Meanwhile, the White House tried Monday to erase the partisan atmosphere around its host of environmental regulations.

“These issues really aren’t Republican or Democratic issues. They are issues that impact our citizens and our cities … It’s so important that we try, I think, to make this a nonpartisan issue,” said James Brainard, the Republican mayor of Carmel, Indiana, and a member of the task force that presented its recommendations on Monday.

So are you going to buy the BS, yet again and think you can work “bi-partisan” with Democrats?

Suckers!

The Nutshell

“When the people find that they can vote themselves money,
that will herald the end of the republic.”

– Benjamin Franklin

Almost 50% of the populace are reliant on the Government’s graces. That’s the end.

Unless, the people wise up and take the bitter pill of responsibility.

But what are the chances these days in an entitlement society where a near majority expect other people to pick up part or all of their check.

Where Health care is now “a right”.

It’s someone else’s money. They have to earn it, and you deserve. It has to be taken from them and given to you. And that’s only “right”.

You don’t care. YOU NEED IT. YOU WANT IT.

You can’t LIVE without it.

So anyone who wants to take away your candy is a “bad man”.

Sacrifice is not in your nature. You aren’t your grandparents, who were part of the generations that sacrificed but then also created this mess. Oh, sure it was out of good intentions. But now that’s just the road to socialist hell.

And don’t expect the government to reform itself. They aren’t there for the money, but the power that the money brings to them.

And they are growing in power everyday.

So you have the incestuous drug addict scenario I laid out years ago.

The people are addicted to the “free” money they believe they must have. The Politicians are addicted to the power promising (or fear mongering) that money gets them that power.

So two co-dependent drug addicts sink the ship for the rest of us.

And the ones who protest, are the “extremist” “domestic terrorist” “crazies” that no one likes.

Chris “tinkle up my Leg” Matthews: ‘When you look at Cruz you can see the insurgent right in all its indignant victimhood,’

If you remember what Speaker Pelosi said in July 2010:

“Let me say that unemployment insurance… is one of the biggest stimuluses (sic) to our economy. Economists will tell you, this money is spent quickly. It injects demand into the economy, and it’s job creating. It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name.”

So unemployment is good for everyone!

The adults in a crowd are the bad guys in a nation of drug-addicted children who will lash out at you viciously if you try and take their candy away or expect them to go on a diet.

They want what they want when they want it and they want it now!!!

Obama: “I don’t want to hear the same old stuff about how America can’t afford to invest in the things that have always made us strong. Don’t tell me we can afford to shut down the government, which cost our government billions of dollars, but we can’t afford to invest in our education system,” he said in a speech.

So cutting spending is only about cutting HIS agenda items and the items that most hurt YOU. Not which best benefit you. The only benefits he wants is even more power and control.

Obama “reiterated a shared principle that we should focus first and foremost on how we can grow our economy and create good jobs with good wages for middle class families,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said aboard Air Force One.

And look how well it’s work so far… 🙂

Wait until the full weight of ObamaCare crushes the economy.

But never fear the Hyper-Partisan is here, it will be the Republicans/Tea Partys/Big Insurance’s Fault!

Not the fault of the lawmakers who exempted themselves from it.

No, they are “good” and too proud and elite for that.

But will the people be smart enough to figure this out.

NO.

Drug Addiction is a very nasty beast. It clouds your better judgment.

Besides, do you want to say to your kids and grand kids, “Whoops! Sorry, we screwed up and now we’ll all have to sacrifice so that YOUR grand kids will have a better life. Not YOU.”

Not a chance in Socialist Hell!!!

So the death spiral will continue.

And that’s the way I see it.

Obama: “We need a budget that is responsible, that is fiscally prudent, but a budget that cuts what we don’t need, closes wasteful tax loopholes that don’t create jobs, freeing up resources to invest in the things that actually do help us grow, things like education and scientific research and infrastructure – roads, bridges, airports,” he said.

A ‘responsible budget’ wouldn’t spend more than we take in. Do you think that will happen?

HELL NO!

‘wasteful tax loopholes’ aka tax increases on rich people and companies to pay from the increased spending, which COSTS jobs and lowers the revenue coming in so they have do even more of it. After all, you wouldn’t want to be seen as being favorable to “greedy” corporations after all…

Socialist eventually run out of other people’s money. But by then the people are decimated.

wasteful were all those “non-esssential” jobs during the shutdown. Wasteful is 15 Different Food Stamp Programs. But every one them is “essential” to someone’s agenda or someone’s pocket. The waster is also in your neighbor’s yard, not yours.

Wasteful is ObamaCare and it’s Commodore 64 website.

But since the Democrats are still pissed off about the Sequester (a 2% cut in an increase in spending) what do think they say about REAL cuts: ARMAGEDDON!

And The Republicans: The toothless, let’s just get along, “I’m not a racist” Please love me!, I don’t like the Tea Party Either crowd?

‘Nuff Said.

Shutdown2

The liberal bias should be of no surprise (except to the liberals who think they are “fair”). 🙂

Thanks MRC.

President Barack Obama’s administration has said the U.S. is on track to meet a pledge of cutting heat-trapping gases by 17 percent from 2005 levels by 2020.

“We’re likely to see the U.S. reduce emissions significantly more than that,” Gore said in a telephone interview yesterday. The pledge falls short of the 28-nation European Union’s target of a 20 percent cut from 1990 to 2020.

The U.S. goal is “entirely inadequate of course, given the nature of the challenge, but it’s a welcome step in the right direction,” Gore said. If the U.S. pledge had a baseline of 1990, it would amount to a 3.4 percent reduction over the three decades, according to the EU.

“The most powerful voice is that of Mother Nature, the increasing storms, floods, droughts and other extreme events,” Gore said. “We’re paying the cost of carbon every day and we should put a price on carbon in markets and put a price on denial in the political system.”

New Study: ’2013 ranks as one of the least extreme U.S. weather years ever’– Many bad weather events at ‘historically low levels’

‘Whether you’re talking about tornadoes, wildfires, extreme heat or hurricanes, the good news is that weather-related disasters in the US are all way down this year compared to recent years and, in some cases, down to historically low levels.’

Tornadoes: ‘lowest total in several decades’

Number of wildfires: ‘On pace to be the lowest it has been in the past ten years’

Extreme Heat: The number of 100 degree days may ‘turn out to be the lowest in about 100 years of records’

Hurricanes: ‘We are currently in the longest period (8 years) since the Civil War Era without a major hurricane strike in the US (i.e., category 3, 4 or 5)’ ( last major hurricane to strike the US was Hurricane Wilma in 2005)

BUT THE AGENDA IS THE AGENDA and the Truth is irrelevant to the success of the agenda. Just look at ObamaCare. It took them 90 years to get it. They don’t care how long it takes. They don’t don’t care how wrong they are. The Agenda is the Agenda. Period.

Speaking of which…

agendaA new political cartoon in the New York Daily News is raising eyebrows by comparing the Skins logo to a swastika and the confederate flag.

In a related story, The Richmond Free Press is dropping the Redskins nickname for the Washington NFL team from its pages, calling it racist.

In an editorial Thursday, the weekly primarily aimed at the city’s African-American community called the name insulting to Native Americans and divisive. (FOX 5)

So all you hogs are racists and you will bow down to Liberal Political Correctness because THE AGENDA IS THE AGENDA and they have to continually prove they have more power than you.

Like a Zombie hoard pressing relentlessly on the door until it breaks and they invade and eat your brain.

So like a Zombie they never stop until they reach their goal, to eat your brains!

And then you become a mindless zombie too.

But there’s a bill in Congress to strip the team of its trademark protection. Congresswoman Donna Edwards, who represents the area, has signed onto it. But is there anything legally that can be done to force a private owner into a name change?

The Echo Chamber

…the most astonishing dance step in the post-shutdown shuffle might be the president’s call to “stop focusing on the lobbyists and the bloggers and the talking heads on radio and the professional activists who profit from conflict” and instead “grow this economy, create good jobs, strengthen the middle class, educate our kids, lay the foundation for broad-based prosperity and get our fiscal house in order for the long haul.”

In other words, all those people who disagree with HIM and THEM. You should only listen to their “echo chambers”…:)

Michael Ramirez Cartoon

Pretty business-friendly, right? But the friendliness isn’t reciprocated. The Federal Reserve’s beige book survey of businesses on Wednesday pointed a sharp finger at the devastating effects of ObamaCare, with employers cutting workers’ hours or laying off employees because of the law.

The Dallas Fed reported one business respondent describing signed contracts in which a temporary employee is made full-time, but will later be hired permanently (but part-time) when ObamaCare is implemented.

Businesses aren’t forced into such absurd, unproductive acrobatics because of something Sen. Ted Cruz or the Tea Party did. Years of the worst economic recovery in U.S. history didn’t happen because of a recent, brief government shutdown.

They happened because, from the waste of a trillion dollars on a stimulus that didn’t stimulate, to the hyper-regulatory Dodd-Frank financial overhaul that preserved “too big to fail,” to the more-hated-by-the-day ObamaCare, this president’s Big Government ways are keeping America down.

The budget deal failed to stop the train wreck that is ObamaCare, ignored the nation’s entitlement crisis and kicked the debt can down the road. But lawmakers did manage to take care of their own.

President Obama insisted throughout the budget showdown that he wouldn’t negotiate over reopening the government or the debt ceiling. He said he’d accept nothing more than a “clean bill.”

Clean, apparently, is in the eye of the beholder in Washington. The debt deal Obama signed did reopen the government and suspend the debt ceiling entirely until early February.

But the bill included several sweetheart deals. While modest compared to the normal sort of federal pork, it nevertheless shows where lawmakers’ priorities are.

Among other provisions, this “clean” debt bill:

• Adds $2 billion for construction work on the Olmsted Locks and Dam on the lower part of the Ohio River. That’s an increase of 276% over what had been appropriated for this project. By an odd coincidence, much of this money will be spent in Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s home state. The Senate Conservatives Fund dubbed it the “Kentucky Kickback.”

• Hands $174,000 over to Bonnie Englebardt, widow of the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg. Never mind that she’d been married to Lautenberg for just nine years when he died, or that it was his second marriage, or that Lautenberg’s net worth was upwards of $116 million when he died.

• Promises federal workers a 1% raise starting in January, in addition to providing back pay for the two weeks they were off due to the shutdown. Too bad for all those private sector workers who will see their pay and hours cut next year thanks to ObamaCare.

• Gives the Transportation Department $450 million more to repair flood-damaged roads in Colorado.

• Devotes $3.1 million for a Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board. This board, unfortunately, has nothing to do with protecting Americans from ObamaCare’s violations of privacy and civil liberties. It’s meant to ensure that federal anti-terrorism efforts don’t cause discomfort to anyone at home.

Meanwhile, the deal left ObamaCare alone, except for one meaningless tweak, and did nothing to rein in the other runaway entitlement programs. Worse, it totally ignored the nation’s long-term debt crisis.

Obama might consider all this a victory. But the country is the poorer as a result.(IBD)

But whenever the president rehearses the ‘parade of awfuls’ that befell the country due to the temporary shutdown, remember this: Under orders from Harry Reid, Obama refused to negotiate with Republicans to prevent the shutdown from beginning, and threatened to veto virtually every single Republican bill that would have ended the standoff or mitigated its impact. He bears much responsibility for what just happened. He’s the President of the United States, not a helpless bystander who floats above the DC morass. He is DC.

The mini lecture about civility and name-calling was simply precious. During the showdown, a top Obama spokesman called Republicans suicide bombers, arsonists and kidnappers (and their favorite: “Hostage takers”)…in the span of a single interview. The invective hurled at Republicans by Democrats far outweighed anything elected Republicans said about Democrats. (Townhall)

But at least THEY got theirs. The elites got what they wanted. And it’s the “other guy’s fault”.

Big Government is good. Bigger Government is Better.

And that’s what matters in the end.

So they’ll demand Government fix it and we can propose EVEN MORE government as the solution!!!

The Cave-In Begins

House Republicans have sent the White House a revised proposal to lift the debt ceiling for six weeks, as well as reopen government through December 15th, which was their original spending proposal before the partial shutdown. The revised GOP plan reflects the demands Obama made in a meeting with House GOP Leaders on Thursday. It also reflects the unwillingness of the DC GOP to face a fiscal showdown with Democrats.

‘Nuff said
