Rep. Keith Ellison likens pro-amnesty fasters to Rosa Parks

keith ellison

We don’t quite see the parallel that Rep. Keith Ellison does. Rosa Parks was alone in her brave act of civil disobedience in 1955. The “Fast for Families” protesters who have set up in tents on the National Mall, on the other hand, have been visited personally by President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama, […]

Did you see Rep. Swalwell’s absurd Obamacare Thanksgiving tale? (Bonus boom-suggestion)

unicorn

Snickering madly. You see, Rep. Swalwell (D-Calif.)  took to Twitter with a Thanksgiving tale. A VERY conservative family member says over Thanksgiving turkey, "under #ACA we're now paying less. But don't tell anyone I said that!" Sigh — Rep. Eric Swalwell (@RepSwalwell) November 30, 2013 Stop it! The “sigh” was a nice touch, buddy. Oh, […]

Earlier this week, first lady Michelle Obama tweeted her support for the fasting immigration protesters on the National Mall, saying, “We’re with you.” Today, the first lady and her husband met with the protesters in person to show their support. The Fast for Families activists have gathered in a tent near the U.S. Capitol for […]

‘Leftist hypocrisy': Palin hammers Reid, Obama over ‘nuked Senate rules,’ O-care disaster

palinthumbsdown

From Sarah Palin’s Facebook page: May this day honor the late President John F. Kennedy. In his honor, and to protect our republic, Americans implore today’s elected leaders to exercise virtuous truth and integrity in office. … Liberals just changed 230 years of enduring Senate rules by enacting the “Nuclear Option” that will now let just […]

Rep. Gerry Connolly: The faux outrage over rules changes is ‘a marvel to behold’

gerry-connolly

What’s this about faux outrage on the other side? As Twitchy has reported, Democrats such as Sen. Barack Obama, Sen. Hillary Clinton, Sen. Harry Reid and Sen. Joe Biden were the ones outraged by the idea of the Senate invoking the nuclear option. That was then, though. Apparently the time has come, says Rep. Gerry […]

Chuck Woolery: New Senate rules will make sense ‘when Republicans get control’

chuck-woolery

If the mainstream news outlets haven’t made clear the implications of Harry Reid triggering the so-called nuclear option in the Senate today, you can bet they’ll cover the implications when the Senate is back in the hands of the GOP. @chuckwoolery And then the GOP should stop referring to them as "our friends on the […]

‘Give us Barabbas!’ Rep. Steve Stockman contemplates rule by ‘majority of folks’

stockman

As Twitchy reported earlier, King Obama doesn’t really seem to understand how a constitutional republic works. Praising Sen. Harry Reid’s triggering of the nuclear option, the president said, “If you’ve got a majority of folks who believe in something, then it should be able to pass.” That sounded a bit like mob rule to Rep. […]

Reid’s ‘nuclear option’ goes through; Did Dems open door for O-care repeal?

undo_obamacare-e1269293769340-286x300-1

Majority Leader Harry Reid got his wish today when the Senate passed a rule change limiting filibusters on executive and judicial nominees. Reid's rule change proposal would set threshold on all votes on nominations, other than SCOTUS, to 51. #fnr — JaredHalpern (@JaredHalpern) November 21, 2013 Senate votes 52-48 against the ruling of the chair, […]

‘What planet are you from?': Political Wire hack hearts liar Reid, knocks GOP ‘dishonesty’

Taegan Goddard

As Harry Reid argued today for the “nuclear option,” which would give the Dem-controlled  Senate the power to limit filibusters, Political Wire publisher Taegan Goddard accidentally let his true colors show: Reid must know he has the votes to change the filibuster rules. That in itself is pretty amazing. — Taegan Goddard (@politicalwire) November 21, […]

Vote of confidence? Obama tells OFA supporters to remember a time before Internet

old phone

We’ve been told that HealthCare.gov will be up and running by the end of the month, but President Obama didn’t do much to inspire confidence before a room of OFA supporters Monday night. Rather than wait for the website to be fixed, he urged supporters to remember a time before the Internet, which wasn’t that […]

‘#LogicFail': Tony Katz sums up argument for Obamacare with one head-scratching sentence

‘Every liberal hates the disabled!’ When will Dem leaders denounce ‘Tea-tards’ hate speech at OFA rally? [pics]

tea-tards-ofa

When one man attended the Million Vet March with a confederate flag, the crapdog media immediately elevated him to the face of the conservative movement. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee demanded that Sen. Ted Cruz and GOP congressmen denounce the “disgusting Tea Party” act. Ahem. Behold the face of the Democrats proudly waving his disgusting “Thanks Tea-Tards” […]

Delusional: WaPo journo-tool Greg Sargent insists Dems really want to negotiate with GOP

Greg Sargent

No kidding. President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have made it quite clear to Americans that they’re not interested in negotiating with Republicans. At all. But WaPo’s Greg Sargent insists we just heard them wrong: The claim Ds "will not negotiate" is a lie. The argument is over what *conditions* negotiations should take […]

Another social media win! Last year, “just bloggers” and citizens scored a win when pushing back against Sen.

Disgusting but true. From the Washington Examiner: At the World War II Memorial on The Mall in Washington, where veterans have been staging protests to keep it open, Washington Examiner’s Charlie Spiering reports that at least seven officials were dispatched Wednesday morning to set up a ring of barricades to block tourists from the memorial. That is two […]

Report: Nancy Pelosi urges ‘no’ vote on funding for veterans’ benefits

pelosireid

While the House was debating a bill this afternoon to provide funds for veterans’ benefits, including disability payments, the GI Bill and VA home loans, the Senate was getting packed up and ready to head home, having adjourned for the day. That means the government shutdown will continue for at least a second day, but it […]

Michael Moore: GOP would charge Obama with treason if he shut down government

Michael Moore

Before we talk treason, it’s important to remember that Michael Moore declared Bradley Manning’s status an official “hero” the moment he pleaded guilty to leaking piles of classified documents to WikiLeaks. So, assuming that President Obama had the constitutional power to just shut down the government at will, would the GOP accuse him of treason? The real […]
