FK – The short answer is the tool using monkeys are still a very primitive species and neither ‘side’ is really interested in freedom. They only want to force their version of authoritarianism on others because it makes them feel secure, either from a big bad world they’d rather die than understand and really deal with or from a sadistic god that will burn billions, including kids and babies, alive in fire forever.
We still exist in a very dark and dangerous age. It’s a long climb out of the well of ignorance.
At the door of the Capitol room, the conservative senator, who has developed his own bill, along with members of the House Freedom Caucus, which is the House’s conservative bloc, said, “In my state of Kentucky, it is illegal to do this.” He added, “You can’t do this. You can’t have legislation locked behind closed doors in my state.”
Paul said the text of the speaker’s bill was being treated as if it were a national secret, such as a plot to invade another country. “It’s wrong.”
The senator, who is an eye surgeon, said the bill needs to be developed in public.
“Conservatives, who have objections, who don’t want Obamacare-lite should be able to see the bill,” he said.
FK – Once again the republicrats are hanging themselves. Only the next time the commies lie their way back in to power they won’t hold back. The result will be civil war. If it doesn’t kick off before then.
FK – One wonders what the anti-federalist’s had to say about it.
As I read the Federalist Papers, especially when perusing Hamilton, I find myself repeating, “bullshit, bullshit, bullshit” under my breath because everything he claimed couldn’t happen has happened and far worse.
Our ancestors killed their fellow British subjects over a small tax on tea, and the British Parliament’s ban on colonial currency, and several other issues, all of which pale in comparison to what the empire beast system does today.
And hundreds of millions either suck happily at the federal tit or sit on their hands and wait for the world to end.
FK – Expecting everything to be done according to code in rural areas and small towns, even larger ones, is a fool’s errand due to plain ol’ human nature. Doesn’t make it necessarily right, but maybe ‘common sensical.’
Still it does seem an autopsy on such an important appointed public servant would be mandatory, regardless of which of the two approved parties chose him to serve their interests.
And this talk of ‘unity’ with our domestic blood enemies, our greatest enemies, is worrying. Is he a faker? Is he stupid enough to not understand that ‘compromising’ with “Liberal”(commie) trash always means moving in their direction?
When you dance with the devil…
And this ‘red state’ crap is disgusting propaganda created by commie newswhores to hide their evil. The commie states should be red. I have an old clipping from the Liberalville commie journal from the 50s that calls the Chinese army ‘reds.’ How strange that now ‘conservative’ republicans are labeled such. It’s not strange, but expected. The evil trash in the mainstream news media always lie about what they are and always pretend to be opposite of what they are. Free speech is only useful to the trash as long as it furthers their agenda.
And this is ‘Red Dawn’:
FK – Only there was probably never any real chance of a military invasion. Our commie enemies were here from the 19th century and infiltrated every segment of our society. Rooting them out may involve a similar scenario…
Will UN-style gun control be rammed down our throats?
Gun import bans … Microstamping of firearms … Ammunition bans … The full implementation of the anti-gun UN Arms Trade Treaty … Illegal amnesty which locks in millions of new, anti-gun voters.
This anti-gun wish list could be part of the secret trade agreement that President Obama is getting ready to spring on the Congress.
This trade pact is called “fast track,” and what it means is that Obama can write any form of gun control he chooses into a trade agreement — import bans, amnesty, etc.
And this agreement DOESN’T need two-thirds vote in the Senate, as a treaty would. When completed, the agreement is merely subject to a majority vote in both Houses … it can’t be filibustered … it can’t be amended … and the GOP can’t refuse to consider it.
Loretta Lynch was sworn in as the 83rd Attorney General of the United States on Monday.
Lynch is an extreme, anti-gun advocate who supports reenacting the so-called “Assault Weapons” ban which sunset in 2004.
While every Democrat supported her, the Republicans listed below cast their support, as well. For starters, every Senator below — both bolded and non-bolded — voted to break the filibuster against her nomination.
FK – This might help with some of them but I fear McCommie(The Kentucky one) is too far gone. I told it Kentucky should be ashamed of it but many of us figured out what trash it is long ago.
The war crimes trials will involve republicrats as well as commiecrats.
After holding up Lynch’s confirmation vote for weeks, McConnell worked to ensure she would overcome a filibuster with a strong bipartisan vote, pitting him against Tea Party firebrand Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and other conservatives.
Some GOP senators say McConnell wanted to avoid a battle over the “nuclear option,” the controversial tactic then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) employed in 2013 to reduce the threshold for ending a filibuster of most executive nominees from 60 votes to a simple majority.
One lawmaker said McConnell quietly talked to colleagues about voting to advance Lynch to a final up-or-down vote.
The motion to end debate on her nomination passed 66-34 and she won confirmation 56-43.
A senior Republican aide, however, dismissed the theory that McConnell was worried about an impromptu floor fight.
“No one was going to object so it’s moot,” said the aide.
The aide asserted that Lynch had broad support regardless of any possible machinations over Senate procedure, noting her final tally was only a handful of votes short of 60.
FK – We send the bastards up there to defend Liberty and stop tyranny and defend the Bill of Rights. When they don’t do that it’s time to look at other options.
Never mind that neither a default nor a shutdown would be necessary if the federal governent were simply to slash spending and start living within its means.
“The debt ceiling will be handled over a period of months,” McConnell said his appearance on CBS’ Face the Nation Sunday. “I made it very clear after the November election we’re certainly not going to shut down the government or default on the national debt.”
He added that he hoped a debt limit extension “might carry some other important legislation that we can agree on in connection with it.”
Currently, the debt limit stands above $17 trillion, a significant increase from the already high $11.3 trillion when Obama took office.
FK – Don’t blame me. I didn’t vote for it. I propose we take it out of its allowance.
As I’ve been sayin’ for a long time: We’re gonna have to go up there, and we won’t be packin’ signs.
