Screwed By the Senate Yet Again

crvote1 cruz“It allows Republicans to show they are committed to ending Obama’s amnesty once and for all in the next Congress. If we agree it is indeed unconstitutional, we have no business funding it when the GOP controls Congress.”
– Senator Ted Cruz (TX.) before the vote on the ‘CRomnibus’ spending bill

Ted Cruz (along with Mike Lee) tried…he really did…but the Senate rejected his Constitutional proxy ‘Point of Order’ on Obama’s immigration executive action when he directly targeted the funding for the Department of Homeland Security.

Rightfully using the spending bill as leverage to try and stop the implementation of Obama’s executive ordered immigration reform, Cruz tried to defy RINO party leaders and their hanger-ons who cut deals with Obama and Reid to try and assure smooth passage of the $1.1 trillion spending bill. So in an attempt to force a Senate vote on said action as a condition for approving this disastrous bill, Cruz presented the argument that the bill violated the Constitution (and it surely does) because it would fund Obama’s plan as it rewrites current on-the-books immigration laws without any say whatsoever from Congress. And Cruz made sure he presented this to the Senate chamber in such a way that it was in keeping with long-standing Senate practices. Continue reading

A Report That Should NEVER Have Been

cia1 cover“Under any common meaning of the term, CIA detainees were tortured.”                 
Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein

Fact: Barack HUSSEIN Obama loves NOTHING better than to apologize for America as he continuously tells the world what’s wrong with this country and especially what he perceives to be wrong with our military.

And now he’s done it again via the just released Senate report condemning the CIA for tactics used in ‘enhanced’ interrogation of the enemy. But this time his actions go beyond mere words into outright condemnation of this country as he and his fellow Democrats…thorns in the side of American patriotism and allegiance…still do NOT get that waterbording and other so-called ‘enhanced’ interrogation techniques used on islmic terrorists in the aftermath of 9/11 should be heralded and applauded NOT demeaned or condemned for there was and still is NO politically correct nor civilized way to deal with those out to kill us all.

Video: Harry Reid’s goon physically assaults conservative journalist

assaultIf you’re a conservative and you ask Sen. Harry “Dingy” Reid, D-Nev., a question, you can expect to find yourself physically assaulted by one of his goons.

According to a video posted Thursday at the Daily Surge, that’s exactly what happened to Jason Mattera, a conservative journalist and author of “CRAPITALISM: Liberals Who Make Millions Swiping Your Tax Dollars.”

A tale of a pipeline going nowhere

“If Republicans want to legislate, I’m still willing to offer them a vote on Keystone in exchange for passing energy efficiency.”
– Harry Reid’s LIE before he blocked the vote on both bills

We all know the Obama administration has repeatedly rejected, delayed, and thumbed their nose at approval for the Keystone XL Pipeline, construction of which would have put thousands of Americans back to work and would have helped to cut our dependence on foreign oil…on Arab oil. In fact, even after the pipeline was deemed to have minimal impact on the environment, our traitor-in-chief…whose signature is the needed last step for approval of the pipeline…recently announced a final decision on said pipeline would be put-off ‘indefinitely’…meaning until after the November mid-term elections. But the reality is that of course he would as passage would upset his brethren’s sensibilities as well as help to turn the tide of the election in favor of the Republicans who have championed the pipeline since day one.

keystone2And now on top of this…and just like I predicted in last Thursday’s op-ed (Kerry and the pipeline…more reasons to seethe http://thepatriotfactor.blogspot.com/2014/05/op-ed…)…Harry Reid has indeed blocked the vote on the bi-partisan Shaheen-Portman’s ‘Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act’…blocked the vote on five Republican amendments attached to the bill including ones to speed up natural gas exports and oppose EPA regulations on future power plants…blocked the vote to approve and start construction on a pipeline that is good for state, local, and national economies…blocked the vote on a pipeline that would increase tax revenues and jump start economic activity across the board.

Kerry and the pipeline…more reasons to seethe

 
“Compliance with a subpoena for documents is not a game.”
– Darrell Issa’s response to John Kerry’s refusal to testify on Benghazi 

What a surprise this is NOT as our ever-loving Secretary of State, John ‘Swiftboat’ Kerry, will NOT comply with the subpoena he received to appear on May 21st before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. But hey, this is the very same man who last year went yachting and kayaking as Egypt was on fire. Continue reading

Thanks Harry Reid: Liberals on Twitter want women and children at Bundy ranch killed with drones

twitter-lynch-mob-rectangle-eyebrowsAfter the Bureau of Land Management ceased their cattle-confiscation operations against the Bundy ranch in Nevada, a number of liberals expressed disappointment and anger, apparently saddened by the lack of bloodshed meted out by federal agents.

Now, some have taken to Twitter, calling for drone strikes against the Bundy ranch, despite the fact that such a strike would kill innocent women and children:

BLM Documents Point to a Massive Federal Land Grab

Bill_of_Rights_Pg1of1_ACFresh off a temporary loss at the Bundy ranch, a document from the Bureau of Land Management appears which appears to signal a whole new round of land grabs and changing designations of federal lands.

Once their plan is complete, Obama would be free to put the land to any use he wants.  In many cases these public lands will become inaccessible to the public.  The memo details ways they can take control of these lands without the approval of congress.  Continue reading

Does Harry Reid want the Bundy family and their supporters killed?

reid-evilIt’s sounding more and more like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., wants to see the Bundy family and their supporters killed.

Hyperbole, you say?  Hardly.  This is a man who called supporters of the Bundys “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.”  He also called them unpatriotic, and said that a task force is being put together to “deal” with the Bundys.  Reid didn’t say what he meant by that, but you can figure it out for yourself.

‘Trespassing cattle’ vs. the feds

bundy ranch“We’re not pointing guns at anyone but we’re sure getting a lot of guns pointed at us.”
– Carol Bundy, wife of Nevada rancher

Ruby Ridge…a classic example of government gone horribly wrong. Briefly, Ruby Ridge was the 1992 confrontation where Federal agents surrounded separatist Randy Weaver’s mountaintop cabin near Naples, Idaho (40 miles south of the Canadian border) after Weaver failed to appear in court to address charges of possessing an illegally shortened sawed-off shotgun. Starting with the U.S. Marshals Service trying to serve a warrant for his arrest, it escalated into firefight after agents shot the family dog and ended with the deaths of Weaver’s 14-year old son Samuel, Weaver’s wife Vicki, and US Marshal William Degan.
