We are Witnessing the Implosion of the Democrat Party

When you’re winning, you never argue amongst yourselves. Winning cures all ills. Everyone likes everyone else. All is forgiven, etc.

For decades the democrats controlled Washington, D.C. The dems consistently won. At times, they had all three branches of government. Other cycles would see them control the presidency and maybe one House or the other. Regardless, they were winning.

Sure they would outwardly complain about Republicans, but we never saw any infighting. As Rush Limbaugh has stated on many occasions – even when things looked not as good for them, nobody circled the wagons like the democrats. In other words, they never turned on each other.

Interestingly, when you’re consistently losing year after year, the same applies. Throughout those same decades, the republicans seemed satisfied with, or at least tolerant of losing. They weren’t good at circling the wagons around one of their own, but still, there was little infighting.

Look at the biggest losers in the NFL. We never hear of fights breaking out at the Cleveland Browns or Jacksonville Jaguars facilities. Why? Because they are preeminent losers and are used to the role. Players that have been with one of these teams a while understand that there is no expectation of winning a Super Bowl, making it to the playoffs or even posting a better than .500 record. read more

Paul Ryan’s Inclusive Conservatism

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Last week the New York Times wrote:  “Republican leaders on Capitol Hill conceded that they will miss a Friday deadline, and the House Appropriations Committee on Wednesday put forward a stopgap measure to prevent a government shutdown and give negotiators an additional five days to reach an agreement.”

And this is what happens every time a budget bill or frankly any “important” legislation (if there is such a thing) comes up. It’s planned and purposeful – playing the postponement game with “stopgap measures.” Isn’t it curious that they always seem to be pushed right to the brink of a holiday period, a government shutdown or such thing? This time it’s a double whammy – Christmas break and the dreaded shutdown (which we all know is a mere slowdown). No one on capital hill wants to be here longer than they have to, so the old game is to keep extending the final decision making until the 11th hour and rush to make a deal, then leave town.

Senator majority leader and head bully, Mitch McConnell already stated there will NEVER again be a government shutdown. read more

Cruz Knows Why Boehner is Leaving

Ted Cruz says he knows why John (the town crier) Boehner is retiring. Cruz says Boehner has cut a deal with Nancy Pelosi to fund all Barack Obama big spending plans and then get out of town. Actually, not get out of town, being that he’ll just move over to K-Street, to his cushy lobbyist position where he’ll make millions in first year. He is staying until the end of October to see the despicable scheme through. read more

Senate Intelligence Report Is Old News

by: the Common Constitutionalist

So the Senate intelligence committee report on CIA “torture” practices has been released. The report is apparently 6300 pages and the summary is 600.

Out of all those pages the only thing we should take from the report is that America, at least under Republican control, is bad.

CNN reported that “The CIA’s harsh interrogations of terrorist detainees during the Bush era didn’t work, were more brutal than previously revealed and delivered no ‘ticking time bomb’ information that prevented an attack, according to an explosive Senate report released Tuesday.”

Well, there you go. It’s just as Rush Limbaugh said – America is the worst, according to Feinstein, the Democrats and the mainstream media. Apparently we need to just stop being so mean to the terrorists. After all, what have they ever done to us – other than blow up our buildings, kill our soldiers and citizens – shoot and behead us. Yeah – there is that.

Yet according to even Leon Panetta, the CIA’s “enhanced interrogation” did in fact lead to the capture of many Al Qaeda operatives, and out of the thousands of terrorists captured, a grand total of three were waterboarded.

Those three were Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Abu Zubaydah and Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri. I couldn’t think of three better candidates.

It’s interesting to note that the report was crafted not by Senator Feinstein or any member of the committee. It was written by unelected, unaccountable Democrat staffers who apparently never even interviewed any CIA officials, and assessments made by the staffers are refuted by classified information that is not included in this report. read more

Democrats Lie – They’re Too Arrogant Not To

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It seems that Susan Ferrechio of the Washington Examiner has found a few choice quotes from Democrats, namely Bella Pelosi (I vant to suck your wallet) as the title of her article on Saturday would suggest: “Dems: Gruber wrote computer code, not Obamacare.”

Is that right. Well, he sure does have a lot to say and sure seems to have plenty of detailed strategic information for some guy tucked away somewhere pecking at a keyboard. That, or a very active imagination. Maybe he’s the inadvertent Edward Snowden of Obamacare, or maybe he’s a typical egotistical arrogant liberal who, like Obama, Pelosi, Reid, et al, think they can say anything and not be held to account, even when they’re caught on audio or video. “Are you going to believe me, or your lying eyes?”

Nonetheless, Susan writes that House Democrats contend that Jonathan Gruber was merely a computer code expert who was factually wrong in the assertions he made, regarding Obamacare.

By now most of us have heard that he was merely a computer “modeler, who wrote 15,000 lines of computer code.” And for this, writes Ferrechio, he “banked more than $1 million from the federal government and states by helping design and implement the Affordable Care Act.” Where do I sign up for that gig?

Susan reports that although Pelosi insists that he played no role in writing Obamacare, Gruber evidently visited the White House eight times. Now why in the world would anyone in the White House invite a mere computer programmer to meet with them just once, let alone eight times? Answer: they wouldn’t. read more

Will Pelosi Cost You Your Full-Time Job?

Nancy Pelosi still insists that Obamacare will improve the lives of average Americans, despite over 20 reports indicating otherwise.

“Because  of the law, in the coming months Americans will have expanded choices and more  affordable care.” Pelosi said at a recent Capitol Hill briefing. “We will be  enhancing patients’ rights, putting money back in the pockets of consumers,  reducing costs and strengthening the economic, financial, and health security  of working families.”

She goes further to say that Obamacare  will even lower the nation’s debt.

“The  Affordable Care Act is bringing the cost of health care in our country down in  both the public and private sector,” said Pelosi. “And that is what is largely  responsible for the deficit coming down.”

But what she doesn’t realize is that her numbers are flawed. read more

Pelosi: Pay Cut Would Diminish The Dignity Of Her Job

Speaking in the context of the sequester cuts that would have a measly effect  on Congressional pay, Nancy Pelosi said that even though a pay cut wouldn’t  effect her as much as it would others, she is still opposed  to the idea:

”I don’t think we should do it; I think we  should respect the work we do. I think it’s necessary for us to have the dignity  of the job that we have rewarded.”

Politicians talk an awful lot about shared sacrifice and “fair share.” But they don’t want to be the ones sharing any sacrifice or giving up their fair  share.

Pelosi’s opposed to doing the same thing to herself that she is in favor of  doing to every American citizen. She thinks a congressional pay cut would make  her office less “dignified.” I suppose she would argue that a citizen pay cut in  the form of higher taxes would accentuate the dignity of those jobs. She  would talk about how wonderful our jobs were and how great it was that we were  all willing to sacrifice our income for the betterment of society later. Continue Reading

 

Where are They Now?

Has anyone heard the caterwauling from the democrats about high gas prices lately. Wonder why that is?

Nancy Pelosi, May, 2007:

Hillary Clinton, May, 2008:

From Frank “The Laut” Lautenberg (D-NJ), April, 2008: “This week, the price of oil and gasoline both hit new record highs – almost $120 for a barrel of oil and more than $3.50 a gallon for gas. These out-of-control prices mean that hundreds of thousands of Americans are driving to work and spending too much of their day just earning back the cost of their commute. The American people deserve to know why this happened,” Lautenberg said.

He added, “It’s long past time to change our national priorities. We know there’s little hope that President Bush will suddenly wake up and see the light. But unfortunately, his Republican allies in Congress continue to stand by his side, with the oil and energy companies – for the status quo and against the American people… The best way to ensure that gas prices remain high is to vote Republican this fall.”

Democrats and the Media on high gas prices, 2012:

Evidently the “American People” don’t deserve to know what is now happening.

With gas prices higher than they’ve ever been at this time of the year (doesn’t bode well for the summer) and the dems controlling two thirds of the government, how would Frank have us vote this November?
