Something’s VERY wrong with this photo of Alan Gross

Alan Gross, just freed from five years of captivity in Cuba, is pictured (below) in his Lawyer’s office.  But look at the photographs on the wall.  Does anyone look familiar?  Whad’ya know, isn’t that Che Guevara?

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.

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.

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

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.

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?

‘I,’ ‘Me,’ ‘My’—Obama Uses First Person Singular 91 Times in Speech on Immigration

Leaving aside passages in which he quoted a Chicago pub owner and a letter from a citizen from Georgia, President Barack Obama used the first person singular—including the pronouns “I” and “me” and the adjective “my”—91 times in a speech he delivered in Chicago Tuesday to explain his unilateral action on immigration.

But as often as Obama used “I,” “me” and “my” in Chicago this week, it was no match for the speech he delivered in Austin, Texas, on July 10, when he used the first person singular 199 times.

Rubio’s Senate Bill Paves Way For Obama’s Executive Amnesty Orders Read

Posted at sharktank.com by Javier Manjarres on November 21, 2014
.
Presidente Barack Obama has followed through with this threat of signing a sweeping executive amnesty order for illegal immigrants with his primetime TV announcement that he would sign the orders on Friday in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Obama’s move was purely political, as he and the Democrats continue to reel over their 2014 midterm election debacle, knowing that jamming through amnesty for illegal immigration would only serve set up Republicans as anti-Hispanic in the eyes of current, and potentially future Hispanic voters, if and when they decided to challenge the President on his executive amnesty orders.

During his address, Obama mentioned that he would push forward with his executive orders because the House of Representatives failed to, or refused to take up and allow a “simple vote” on the controversial and pro-illegal immigration “Gang of 8″ Senate bill cosponsored by Florida Senator Marco Rubio, which Obama said was a fair “compromise.”

Obama: Kneel Before Zod – Obama’s Amnesty Speech

The following article by Ben Shapiro was posted on Breitbart.com last night shortly after president Obama’s official announcement of his constitutional power grab (executive amnesty speech).  I read it with my jaw wide open most of the time as I realized that I had some of the same thoughts that Mr. Shapiro expressed while I was watching the speech.  I said some of the same thoughts, not all; this young man Shapiro is literally brilliant, and he definitely knows how to say what’s on his mind.

This article is not the shortest chapter in the book, but you’ve got to read it.  And let me know what you think (comment) if you’re so inclined. Thanks.

On Thursday night, President Obama delivered his address to the nation on his executive amnesty. It was historic, both in its scope and in its dishonesty: the speech represented a closely-woven and incredible tapestry of falsehood, exposited with a straight face by the greatest liar in modern American history. To those versed in immigration and constitutional law, watching Obama lay out his program felt like watching a madman describe, with preternaturally perfect sincerity, how the moon was constructed of cheese: you know the argument is untrue, but it’s incredible to watch its dogged exposition.

Obama opened with a glowing talk about the wonders of immigration – generalizations with which virtually [all] Americans agree, as is his wont.

Then the lies began. Posing as an immigration hardliner, Obama stated that he felt for “families who enter our country the right way and play by the rules,” and who “watch others flout the rules” (of course, Obama was mere moments away from rewarding those who flout the rules and punishing those who play by them). He then explained that businesses exploited cheap immigrant labor (of course, Obama was about to announce wage pressure downward in the form of amnesty). He summed up with this incredible sentence:

All of us take offense to anyone who reaps the rewards of living in America without taking on the responsibilities of living in America.

Well, no. Not all of us, given that the Democratic Party draws its voting base from those who wish to reap the rewards of living in America’s generous welfare state without taking on the responsibilities of doing so.

Obama continued with his fibs about how he had secured the southern border, citing a drop in illegal border crossings – a drop caused almost entirely by Obama’s weak economy (Obama himself dated the immigration drop to 2007, when President Bush was in office). He pooh-poohed the “brief spike in unaccompanied children being apprehended at our border,” and said that “the number of such children is now actually lower than it’s been in nearly two years.” The notion that there has been a decrease in unaccompanied children crossing our border, according to FactCheck.org, is false.

This all prefaced Obama’s big power grab. In true dictatorial fashion, Obama laid out how the legislative process had failed – and then noted that he had to do what he had to do.

Now, I continue to believe that the best way to solve this problem is by working together to pass that kind of common sense law. But until that happens, there are actions I have the legal authority to take as President – the same kinds of actions taken by Democratic and Republican Presidents before me – that will help make our immigration system more fair and more just.

Obama has no such legal authority. He knows it. Obama’s executive amnesty is different in scope and kind from anything before it. Neither Ronald Reagan nor George H.W. Bush pursued their amnesty programs in the complete absence of Congressional legislation. No president has ever legalized some 7 million illegal immigrants, as Obama has done over the past three years. This is unprecedented. Read more at breitbart.com.

 

Ted Cruz: Midterms Were ‘Referendum on Amnesty,’ Obama Just Ignoring

Go Ted go, but we’re fighting an uphill battle on a treadmill – Especially with the House and Senate lead by Boehner and McConnell.

Published on Nov 19, 2014 by FastNews!!

Senator Ted Cruz joined Megyn Kelly tonight to rail against President Obama‘s planned action on immigration. And Cruz argued Obama’s acting particularly despotic, not just because he’s taking executive action without the approval of Congress, but because he is flagrantly ignoring the message the American people sent in the midterm elections.

Cruz argued that the midterms were actually a “referendum on amnesty” and that Obama is discarding the will of the people and becoming an “unaccountable monarch.”

Cruz also pointed out that 1) Obama has said elections have consequences when they go his way, and 2) several Democrats who supported his immigration plan in the Senate were voted out. He again proposed that the Republican-held Senate should threaten to block every single Obama nominee if Obama attempts to act on his own.
