Podcast – Chuck Schumer Goes Off On Republicans Over RINOCare

Today I discuss Senate Minority Leader Chuckie Schumer, who had some choice words for President Trump, Speaker Ryan and the Republicans over their failed plan on Friday.

He complained that the GOP never even approached him regarding fixing ObamaCare. Instead they just froze out the dems and tried to go it alone – and failed. He’s says he’s not happy about it, but we know that’s a laugh. The dems are thrilled.

I explain that ObamaCare was written to fail, and that any effort by the Republicans to “fix” it, will be useless. It must be repealed in full. read more

Podcast – The Dirty Dems vs Jeff Sessions – Stop Listening to Ivanka

The democrats, led by the despicable Chuckie Schumer are pulling out all the stops, doing everything they can to disrupt President Trump, his Cabinet and his agenda. Senate Minority Leader Schumer has called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign – and anything less will be unacceptable to him and the rest of radicals in the party – which is all of them. They need to be stopped.

President Trump would be wise to stop listening to his daughter Ivanka. She is battling with Senior Adviser Steve Bannon over global warming. Bannon wants Trump to dump the Paris Climate agreement, while Ivanka and her hubby Jared Kushner want daddy to drop his opposition to the agreement. read more

Will Republicans Have the Courage to use the Reid Rule

by: the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version

Remember in 2013, when the New York Times wrote this? “The Senate changed its most infuriating rule and effectively ended the filibuster on executive and judicial appointments. From now on, if any senator tries to filibuster a presidential nominee, that filibuster can be stopped with a simple majority, not the 60-vote requirement of the past.”

They didn’t merely write it. They celebrated the news. “That means a return to the democratic process of giving nominees an up-or-down vote, allowing them to be either confirmed or rejected by a simple majority,” the Times added.

The NYT described the act as one of desperation by then Majority leader “Dingy” Harry Reid. The “nuclear option” as it has been dubbed, was the only way to “return to the democratic process.” Good guy Reid, “was pushed to act by the Republicans’ refusal to allow any appointments to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.”

ThinkProgress was a bit more harsh as they wrote in 2013 that, “The filibuster allows Republicans to sabotage government and then campaign on the fact that government isn’t working. This is a recipe for more sabotage.” read more

Yes Olympians, the Taxman Is Coming for You

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It’s not often I repeat myself, but considering I discussed this topic in my last podcast, I guess it’s only half repeating. You may listen to it here.

But this one just irks me – the fact that our government is so hard up for money it has to tax our Olympic medalists. Oh sure – there is a way to avoid paying the tax. Just compete, but make sure you don’t medal. Come in fourth – or last.

I guess in a way you could call it an optional tax – like a sales tax. If you don’t wish to pay the tax, don’t purchase the item.

I’m actually a big advocate of the sales tax, in lieu of others. It really is the only optional tax – assuming you are like the rest of us and in fact not immortal, thereby able to forgo the death tax. Other than that, our government has seen to it that everyone pays up.

But what bureaucratic brainiac consciously made the decision to tax our Olympic athletes? Was it some 98 pound chicken-necked little worm in the back room of a DC office who may have been slighted by a jock in high school?

It has been dubbed the “victory tax” and is said to be opposed by Congress. But I guess it’s not opposed by enough of them, for there is presently a bill waiting to be passed that has yet to be. Maybe with a little more publicity it may gain some traction, but I doubt it. It’s much easier to pass a bill adding to the already bloated coffers of government then to pass one which could help our athletes who train their whole lives for chance to represent OUR country. read more

Podcast – Democrat Hypocrites Ramp Up Pressure for Supreme Court Vote – White Sox Pitcher Walks Away From Game

Despicable “Dirty” Harry Reid and the democrats are putting pressure on the Republicans to bring Obama’s choice for supreme Court to capital hill for Senate hearings and a vote, despite Mitch McConnell’s vow to refuse hearings. These hypocrites are using the exact opposite argument they used for George W. Bush’s late term nominees.

Adam LaRoche, the now famous Chicago White Sox pitcher is walking away from the game to spend more time with his son. The Sox objected to amount of time the boy already spends with the team. He chose to give up a multi-million dollar contract for his son. Who you do the same? I share my thoughts. read more

Podcast – Chuck-You Schumer and Our Terrorist Ally al-Nusra

Today I discuss the retirement of Dirty Harry Reid and the probable ascension of Charles Chuck-You Schumer to Democrat Minority Leader. I also discuss the Clarion Projects report on a Think Tank director who thinks it a good idea to ally with one terrorist group to fight another. That will go well – or at least she believes so. read more

Chuck-U Throws the Hail Mary

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The New York Times reported late last week that New York Sen. Chuck-U Schumer is suggesting a, “legislative maneuver, known as a discharge petition, that would allow supporters of overhauling the nation’s immigration laws to circumvent the Republican majority in the house by bringing the measure directly to the house floor, bypassing the regular committee process”.

 

The Times continued, “Lawmakers and aides in both parties say that a discharge position, especially one coming from Mr. Schumer, whose views are strongly opposed by many house conservatives, is unlikely to succeed. Even if all House Democrats supported the measure, it would still require more than a dozen Republican signatures.”

 

Now I’m not certain that the house could do the same to the Senate – issue a discharge position – but I could guarantee Chuck-U would be one of the first to the microphone, crying like a stuck pig, saying how dare the House try to meddle in the affairs of the Senate or usurp the leadership’s authority, or some such nonsense.

 

“This scheme has zero chance of success”, the Times reported. “A clear majority in the House understands that the massive Senate-passed bill is deeply flawed”, said Michael Steel, a spokesman for Speaker John Boehner. “That’s why we will continue to work on a step-by-step, common sense reform”. read more

Schumer’s Plan to Abolish the Tea Party

This article is fairly long but well worth the read:

 

The Democrats’ new much-vaunted master plan for annihilating the Tea Party movement calls for aggressive class warfare, demagoguery, and lying about the beliefs, motives, and goals of Tea Party supporters, Sen. Chuck Schumer revealed yesterday.

Echoing President Obama’s infamous “bitter clingers” remarks, the New York Democrat argued that Tea Party supporters are cartoonish figures who are easily ridiculed.

Invoking all the usual liberal cliches about conservatives, Schumer said the Tea Party is successor to “the Know-Nothings, Prohibitionists, Father Coughlin, and Huey Long.” In other words, he believes the movement is a collection of hicks, yahoos, neo-Luddites, fascists, male chauvinists, and racists fearful of what leftist academics might call The Other.

“Tea Party adherents see an America that’s not reflective of themselves, and the America they have known, and they just don’t like it.” They are bothered by changes in the “cultural, technological, and demographic makeup” of the nation. It angers them that “white Anglo-Saxon men are exclusively not running the country anymore.”

Schumer said his fellow Democrats in the U.S. Senate plan to subject the public to a massive, presumably very boring post-constitutional civics lesson from now until the congressional elections in November. read more

Feinstein Decides Who is a Journalist

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), backed by Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), has proposed an amendment to a journalist shield law sponsored by Senator Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier in the month. She wants to choose who can and who cannot be considered a journalist.

Schumer’s shield law bill’s purpose is aimed at protecting journalists’ sources. A renewed push for stronger media shield laws came after disclosures earlier this year that the Justice Department secretly subpoenaed two months’ of telephone records for phone lines used by reporters and editors for The Associated Press and secretly used a warrant to obtain the emails of a FOX News journalist.

“We need a strong media shield bill now more than ever,” Schumer said. “This is an important step forward that strengthens this bipartisan bill and should give it even more momentum to clear the committee and the Senate by the end of the year.”

The New York Democrat’s effort came complete with a four-page explanation of who would be protected under the law, summarily, a person “with the primary intent to investigate events and procure material in order to disseminate to the public news or information concerning local, national or international events or other matters of public interest.”
