Mark Levin to the GOP: I AM ONE INCH AWAY FROM LEAVING YOU!

On the air last night, fiery radio talk show host, Constitutional scholar and life-long Republican, Mark Levin, said that after the way Republicans have acted since their November 4th election victory, that he is “one inch away from leaving the Republican Party.”  Many people do not know that Mr. Levin served in the entire eight years of the Reagan administration.

Listen to what Mark had to say last night here.

 

“You are a ‘Teabagger!”

Long Island Woman Receives $1.12 Million For False Prosecution

A Long Island federal jury rewarded Nancy Genovese, 58, a mother of three, $1.12 million in compensatory damages after being arrested in 2009 for attempting to photograph a helicopter at a Air National Guard base in the Hamptons. Genovese intended to use the photo on a “Support the Troops” website; she was arrested for trespass and insulted as a “Teabagger.”

From The New York Post:

Southhampton cops searched her and found a legally owned rifle that she was transporting from a nearby rifle range. She contends a deputy sheriff arrived on the scene later and said to her, “I bet you are one of those Tea Party people.” When Genovese said she’s gone to Tea Party rallies, he allegedly said, “You’re a real right-winger, aren’t you?” and “You are a ‘Teabagger’” and then added that she’d be arrested for terrorism to make an example of other “right wingers.”

Louie Gohmert Slams Boehner After Cromnibus: Maybe Democrats Will Vote for Him for Speaker

Gohmert: Leadership Wouldn’t Work With Conservatives on Cromnibus

Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said that conservatives in the House heard “not one word” from House GOP leadership on compromises to make changes to the cromnibus in order to get conservatives to vote for it even though “we were willing to work with them to compromise” on Thursday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.  Read more at breitbart.com.

If Republicans Don’t Fight Now, They Never Will

The Nuclear Option – by Charles Hurt – Dec. 10, 2015

Call it the mysterious case of the Incredible Shrinking GOP.

Barely one month ago, the party sailed to victory in one of the biggest rout election waves of the past century. They ran the board and took control of the U.S. Senate. They grew to historic levels in the U.S. House. The Democratic Party was left in tatters in state, local, and governor races across the country.

But today, just a few weeks later, before GOPers even take hold of their new reins of power, the party is crying poverty. They are stricken with paralysis. House Speaker John A. Boehner, known for his weeping, begs powerlessness.

“Frankly, we have limited options and limited abilities to deal with it directly,” Mr. Boehner said last week when asked about President Obama’s unconstitutional executive action to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens presently living illegally in the U.S.

“Limited options?” “Limited abilities?” We have an unbridled madman in the White House right now taking a machete to the U.S. Constitution and the leader of the opposition party that was just thrust to power in a historic rejection of the president and his cleptocratic policies is now talking about “limited” options and abilities?

Funny, I don’t recall a single Republican running in a single race this year on a campaign that Republicans in Congress have only “limited” options and abilities to stop Mr. Obama. No, in fact, every single one of them ran their entire campaigns on the singular promise that we have to vote for Republicans so they could stop Mr. Obama. And Americans voted. [Bold type, mine]  Continue reading at breitbart.com.

Megyn Kelly Slams Obama on Accountability, Transparency

Watch ’till the end. It keeps getting better!

Dec.10 2014  RSS News:  Troops are on heightened alert after the Democrats’ decision to release a report on the now-defunct enhanced interrogation technique program that was used in the wake of 9/11.

Megyn Kelly said tonight that President Barack Obama is defending that decision, demanding accountability and transparency, “to which some responded, ‘Preacher, heal thyself.’”

“It was important for us […] to recognize that part of what sets us apart is when we do something wrong, we acknowledge it,” Obama said.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest explained that the report demonstrates a commitment to transparency and accountability.

Megyn Kelly said, “When we in America do something wrong, we acknowledge it. We are transparent, accountable. We fess up so we can claim our moral authority, like when the president immediately came clean about his ‘if you like your plan, you can keep your plan’ promise? When he sold us the ObamaCare mandate by denying that it was actually a tax, as he went before the Supreme Court to say exactly the opposite? When his spokesman told us the White House did not alter the Benghazi talking points? When James Clapper lied about spying on all Americans? When Eric Holder misled about targeting journalists, like James Rosen? And then there’s the president’s 180 on immigration.”

Obama was pressed yesterday on his ‘180’ by Univision’s Jorge Ramos, and Obama “sidestepped” the questions, Kelly said.

 

Hearing – Jonathan Gruber and Marilyn Tavenner Stonewall Congress

The following video clips are of several members of Congress questioning Obamacare architect and admitted liar, Dr. Jonathan Gruber, and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator the honorable arrogant Marilyn Tavenner during a hearing of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on December 9th.  I could write several pages of commentary, but the videos, which are just a small sampling of the questioners, speak for themselves.

“…so get over this damn glibness?”  Rep. Cynthia Lummis finishes her questioning time at the health care hearing by talking about her husband, who died from a heart attack, and the problems they had with Obamacare.

 

Boehner Drops 1,603-Page Omnibus Spending Bill, Securing Future of Obama’s Amnesty

So much for reading the bill.  The good news:  There a few good Republicans in the House.  The bad news:  None of them are in leadership positions – ADB

Election results in November that emboldened the House Republican majority and delivered the U.S. Senate majority to the GOP be damned, House Speaker John Boehner is desperately turning to the Democrats to pass his omnibus bill that enables President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty.  Read more at Breitbart.com.

Just Like Obamacare: Boehner’s Omnibus Website Fails, Bill Text Disappears Behind ‘Server Error’ Message.

A few short hours after the House GOP posted Speaker John Boehner’s 1,603-page $1.1 trillion omnibus bill text on its website, the website failed.

The bill text—both the PDF and the XML versions—went down around 11 p.m. on Wednesday night, for unspecified reasons. Speaker Boehner’s spokesman Michael Steel hasn’t responded to inquiries as to why the bill is no longer available for the public to see.  Read more at Breitbart.com.

Note:  As of 8:00 this morning the bill was downloadable in PDF format on the above site. When I tried the XML version, it crashed – ADB

Judge Jeanine Opening “Why don’t you act like the President?”

On last night’s “Justice,” Judge Jeanine Pirro blasted President Obama for taking sides based on color, not facts, and stoking the flames “racial hatred, resentment and divisiveness.”

“Every young American who loses his life should be the concern of the man in the White House. But why is it that we only hear from him when death involves a person of color?” Judge Jeanine asked.

She pointed out that Obama wasn’t elected by just one group, but all Americans, Republican and Democrat, black and white.

“Why don’t you act like you’re the president of all of us?”

Dems’ final insult: Landrieu crushed

Cassidy trounces incumbent with Republicans set to control 54 Senate seats in the next Congress.

By James Hohmann  12/6/14 9:49 PM EST    Updated 12/7/14 11:57 AM EST

In the final insult of a devastating 2014 election for Democrats, Sen. Mary Landrieu, the party’s last remaining statewide officeholder from the Deep South, was trounced Saturday in the head-to-head Louisiana Senate runoff election.

Republican Bill Cassidy’s resounding victory is the ninth Senate seat picked up by the GOP in this year’s elections, three more than the party needed to take control of the chamber. With nearly all the ballots counted, Cassidy led Landrieu by 14 points, 57 percent to 43 percent.  Read more at politico.com.

Blue State Blues: Bring Back Trial by Drowning! (Satire)

by Joel B. Pollak * 5 Dec 2014

Once upon a time, the civil rights movement was deeply concerned about the rights of criminal defendants. Not anymore. Today, those who say they care most about civil rights are calling for grand jury reforms that would make it easier to indict those accused of certain, racial crimes.

Yet after the Trayvon Martin case, there is no guarantee those trials would lead to convictions. So I say: let us revive a time-honored practice: trial by ordeal.

It would work as follows. The accused racist–Darren Wilson, for example–would be arrested and led by Rev. Al Sharpton (or his designee) to the reflecting pool at the Lincoln Memorial, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his “I Have a Dream” speech. The defendant would then be bound (gently) and thrown (humanely) into the dark, redemptive waters. If he sank to the bottom, he would be acquitted. If he floated, he would be convicted.

Of course, those exonerated by the ordeal would still drown. Yet they would die with dignity. Their sacrifice for the sake of racial justice would earn them a place in the pantheon of “the struggle.” They would also set an example for others, whose commitment to equality may be weak or superficial at best.

Thomas Sowell: Congressman Repeating “Hands up, Don’t Shoot” Lie Reminds him of Joseph Goebels

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

Sean Hannity Rips Into Eleanor Holmes Norton

Since Ms. Norton’s congressional district is Washington, DC, she does not have a vote.  Thank God that at least one part of our Constitution is still working.

Published on Dec 4, 2014 by LiveLeak

Sean Hannity was left perplexed on Thursday night when Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) proclaimed she has no interest in reviewing evidence released concerning the officer-involved killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

“Did you read the evidence that was released in this case? Hannity asked.

“I did not, and that is not a concern,” Holmes replied.

“The evidence isn’t a concern? What?” The visibly stunned host shot back. Hannity Rips Into Eleanor Holmes Norton: You Didn’t Read Ferguson Evidence?
