…and the House.

I wrote this to Sen. Feinstein and Sen. Boxer, both of whom I abhor to my core.

I know you won’t listen to me, but I’m going to say it anyway.
NO AMNESTY!
Stop destroying America with foolish legislation that does more harm to America than any other monstrosity you in the Senate have created outside of Obamacare.

Americans need jobs now.
Americans are overwhelmingly against amnesty.
We want our borders secure and we want you to enforce the laws as they are now.

This is a complete failure on your part.
I am disgusted with you and the other clown that calls herself a Senator as well.

I am one pissed off American because I am paying attention to you people destroying this country one amendment at a time.

Do what you said you would do when you swore your oath to the Constitution.
You are a liar and should be tossed out on your ass.

You aren’t listening to us and this one will cost you. No fucking amnesty. Secure the border. That’s all you need to start with.
Secure the border, then you can come back and look at the other issues.

Stop rewarding criminals and their children over America.
America has the right to secure borders and nothing you idiots have done so far has come even close to that.

Not the Senate’s version.

Not the House’s version.

America’s version. Close the borders. Make it a national security priority. 18 months and it could be done.

Stop pandering to criminal illegal aliens.

Feel free to use any of this to write your idiots in the Senate and the House.

 

…a procedural move that the House can use to stop some of the Senate’s shenanigans.

Good read. I learned something new about Congress just from reading this column.

Former Senate secretary says ‘blue slip’ may be a key to stopping gun bill

House Speaker John Boehner could defeat Senate efforts to enact “universal background check” legislation with a simple procedural maneuver, a former Senate insider says. Elizabeth Letchworth, who spent 26 years in the Senate, rising to United States Senate Officer having been elected as the Secretary for the Majority and United States Senate Secretary for the Minority, and who currently runs the GradeGov.com internet resource for rating and communicating with members of Congress, released a video where she claims “[T]he Speaker of the House can uphold the Constitution and block the gun control bill and immigration reform if he uses the blue slip process.

“Article 1, section 7 of the Constitution — this is the Origination Clause — says that all bills … dealing with …raising revenue must originate in the House of Representatives,” Letchworth continues.

If the House believes this has been violated, “they initiate what is called a ‘blue slip process,’” which is debated for one hour and then voted on, she elaborates.

…then anyone who has ever donated to the Republican Party should cease to do so in the future. Not one fucking dime. Since the RINO fever has struck these idiots in the House and Senate, then we as donors should cease all donations to that Party. Invest your money on a Party that will actually represent your interests. The Republicans ain’t it.

Brent Bozell is saying as much:

A prominent conservative activist and fundraiser is reportedly threatening to steer donors away from the Republican Party if GOP lawmakers agree to raise taxes.

Brent Bozell, founder and president of conservative watchdog group Media Research Center, sent a letter to Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus on Wednesday promising to advise conservative donors to shun the party if its leaders in Congress sign a deal to raise taxes, The Hill reports.

Bozell — who is also the chairman of ForAmerica Inc., a Virginia-based nonprofit — has been active in conservative political circles for three decades and estimated he has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for a litany conservative causes.

“Reince, it pains me to say this, but if the Republican Party breaks its word to the American people and goes along with President Obama with tax increases, it will have betrayed conservatives for the final time,” Bozell wrote. “I will make it my mission to ensure that every conservative donor to the Republican Party that I have worked with for the last three decades — and there are many and they have given tens of millions to Republican causes — gives not one penny more to the Republican Party or any member of Congress that votes for tax increases.”

…the government wienies have decided to place the burden of the coming fiscal cliff on the backs of military retirees.

This will effect all military retirees, and those that intend to retire. This will in all likelihood hurt recruiting and retention efforts across the board as well.

Write the morons that represent you and let them know in no uncertain terms, that putting the fiscal cliff on our backs is not how it’s supposed to work. Tell those morons to do their damn jobs and stop screwing us over.

Avoiding the ‘Fiscal Cliff’ May be as Painful as Going Over It
Terry Howell

This week Tom Philpott reported that the Congressional Budget Office has put a red “laser dot” on future pay raises, TRICARE, and future retirement benefits.

In their report, the CBO says annual military pay raises have exceeded civilian wage growth over the last 10 years. In fact the CBO estimates that military pay increased by 52 percent from 2002 to 2010 while civilian wages rose only 24 percent.

The CBO says that any impact reducing pay increases might have on recruiting and retention can be mitigated by offering larger enlistment and reenlistment bonuses.   The CBO pay cap option would mean military pay would lose nine percent to private sector wage growth over the five-year period.The CBO also suggests an option to raise TRICARE enrollment fees, deductibles or copayments, actions also proposed by the administration last April.  For working-age retirees, those under 65, fee hikes should be phased over five years and use a “tiered approach” so that senior-grade retirees would pay higher fees than lower-ranking retirees.

I think this is an important read and needs to be shared and disseminated as widely as possible.

Obama’s Lawless Bureaucracy Now Trying To Deliver an Unconstitutional Advantage to Big Labor

A “rule” — written by unelected bureaucrats — proposes that a vote on unionization must occur quickly after the union’s request of such.

Those in business and labor are expecting a vote in the Senate, perhaps as early as next week, on a joint resolution for congressional disapproval that would block the regulation. A Senate Republican leadership aide told The Hill that a vote on the measure was expected sometime over the next two weeks.

Business groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce oppose the rule, which would speed up union elections. Glenn Spencer, vice president of the Chamber’s Workforce Freedom Initiative, has said in the past that a vote on the joint resolution is likely the most significant labor vote this congressional session.

“This vote is coming soon, and it’s the Senate’s opportunity to tell the board that it has gone too far,” Spencer told The Hill.

Why is Obama’s bureaucracy pushing this?

Because a union might be campaigning for unionization a year before they ask for a vote. If they ask for a snap election, the company has no time to lobby against it.

Lou Dobbs was just discussing this on Fox. When a vote is taken 11 to 15 days after the request, the unions win almost 90% of votes.

I stopped over at Bob’s place and he has an excellent point about firing Boner’s (sic) ass. Other than being a crying pussy, he isn’t doing his job protecting or defending the Constitution. Most of those morons in Congress aren’t but the leader of the House sure as hell should. Pelosi being a prime example of a criminal politician that didn’t do her job and should have been fired as well, but that’s besides the point.

At any rate, go check out Bob’s work:

Fire Boehner

Written By: Bob

Let me be totally up-front about my complete ambivalence to Speaker of the House John Boehner’s career as a congressman, and his current tenure as Speaker of the House. I have no strong feelings about his overall  performance one way or the other.

Now that my position is perfectly clear on that, let me explain why he needs to be fired from his job, and replaced with a Speaker that values the Constitution and the rule of law more than he loves political power.

It has now been 15 months since Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered on Peck’s Canyon Arizona by a cartel rip crew led by an FBI criminal informant. Within 48 hours of his death, top officials in DOJ were aware of the fact that multiple weapons discarded by the rip crew had been traced back to Operation Fast and Furious, a joint effort of the BATFE, DEA, and FBI within the Justice Department, the Department of Homeland Security, elements of the IRS’s CID, and if conducted with even the thinnest veneer of legality, the State Department.

I plan on supporting this effort. These morons in Congress need to know that the American people aren’t going to put up with their bullshit for much longer.

TEA PARTY February 1st?

So long as we have an inauguration drawing this sort of crowd and not a protest about our government blowing $700 billion of our dollars so that The Pigmen of Wall Street can continue to rob our nation blind, then saddle us with the bill when their bets go bad, we will see no solution.

I cannot take credit for the idea floated on the forum, but I do like it.

It is time for We The People to send a strong message to Washington DC – no more.  No more loading our children and grandchildren with debt.  No more bailing out speculators and bankers who made bets they knew were unsafe at the time.  No more bailing out people who came to Congress to demand the removal of leverage limits, got what they asked for, then blew themselves up with the very leverage they demanded to be able to use.

No more.

Therefore, on February 1st, which is more than enough time for Barack Obama to be seated in his chair in the West Wing, I am recommending an act of peaceful, lawful and yet unmistakable protest.
