Since "Free Republic is an online gathering place for independent, grass-roots conservatism on the web. We're working to roll back decades of governmental largesse, to root out political fraud and corruption, and to champion causes which further conservatism in America.", I and others think it's a good idea to centralize what the goes on in the Senate (or House).
So if you see something happening on the Senate/House floor and you don't want to start a new thread to ask if anyone else just heard what you heard, you can leave a short note on who said what and about what and I'll try and find it the next day in THE RECORD. Or if you see a thread that pertains to the Senate, House, or pretty much any GOV'T agency please link your thread here.
If you have any suggestions for this thread please feel free to let me know.
Here's a few helpful links.
C-SPAN what a great thing. Where you can watch or listen live to most Government happenings.
C-SPAN 1 carries the HOUSE.
C-SPAN 2 carries the SENATE.
C-SPAN 3 (most places web only) carries a variety of committee meetings live or other past programming.
OR FEDNET has online feed also.
A great thing about our Government is they make it really easy for the public to research what the Politicians are doing and saying (on the floor anyway).
THOMAS where you can see a RECORD of what Congress is doing each day. You can also search/read a verbatim text of what each Congressmen/women or Senator has said on the floor or submitted 'for the record.' [This is where the real juicy stuff can be found.]
Also found at Thomas are Monthly Calendars for the Senate Majority and Senate Minority
And Monthly Calendars for the House Majority and Roll Call Votes can be found here.
The Founders' Constitution
THE WHITE HOUSE
THE WAR DEPARTMENT (aka The Dept. of Defense)
LIVE DoD Briefings
NEWSEUM: TODAY'S FRONT PAGES
10:00 a.m.: Convene and begin a period of morning business.
The Senate convened at 9:00 a.m. and adjourned at 1:04 a.m. Three record votes were taken.
Thanks for the thread.
Have I ever told you that you are the only good thing in FLA,(kidding, of course there are three others).
We love you martyrs.
Thanks for the thread.
Good Morning Patriots.
You watching Washington Journal or the replay on C2?
FNC at the moment.
Will the Senators speak of this?
OH NO! Frist did not get a head's up on this yet. If it is true!
Frist just got it! Paying tribute!
Now Frist is on it.....
I have been listening to Laura Ingraham and she said that this will be all that is talked about all weekend now...
She is afraid (as am I) that Bush may go the "safe" route and pick Alberto Gonzalez....I would HATE that pick, he is too pro-choice, and anti-tough immigration policies...
I am rooting for Janice Rogers Brown!
Do you think the dems will run to the floor and start making "President Bush better ask our permission before he nominates someone" speeches before the leave for the recess...or are they all gone?
Conservative groups are saying NO to Gonzalez per Laura Ingraham!
Did the sun rise this morning?
I don't think he will pick either of them, my wild guess is Thomas Moyer CJ of the Ohio Supreme Court. Just a gut reactiion, I will most likely be dead wrong!
I would like to see, just for the sake of shock, Kenn Starr, Miguel Estrada! LOL But I am rotten like that!
Drink everytime They infer or state that President Bush must consult the Dimrats!
Buckets Voinovich up about Bolton. I find this quite interesting, does he fear a recess appointment?
Did anyone else hear Voinobitch say "we have to do a better message to get our job out"? I heard that plain as day, cannot believe what a jerk he is.
