Thank you, OXENinFLA for putting together the below comments and links!
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 we will 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 us 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 ,
Senate Republicans and Senate Democrats
And Monthly Calendars for the House and Roll Call Votes can be found here.
Welcome to GovTrack.us
The Founders' Constitution
THE WHITE HOUSE
THE WAR DEPARTMENT (aka The Dept. of Defense)
LIVE DoD Briefings
NEWSEUM: TODAY'S FRONT PAGES
YES...the MSM have purposely pushed up the campaigning time of the 2008 election to just after the 2006 vote..IN ORDER...to use their resources to frame the war, while helping the Dem candidates...have the benefit.
I have NO doubt that the MSM is determined to put who THEY want in the White House next year..they will continue to frame, skew, distort, lie....about the news to make that happen.
Did you hear James Webb??
He gets on his high horse about how the GOP shouldn’t be so mean...but he actually said that the POLLS and the polling of the TROOPS show that they want the DEMS plan!!
That guy is such an idiot...and then I hear Schumer say that Bush just hides in the White House and listens to a group of advisors but NOT the generals...
The are all lying out their rear ends...
I had to run out for a bit so I misses Webb.
You mean to tell me he lied /s
Yes, Bah...I am sorry to report that an elected Senator did stand on the Senate floor and told a whopper.
Bond is hitting them hard now..
Aw geez, Warner wants to tell the Iraqis when they can take a hiatus. Who says they won’t be working things out during that time?
OMG...she looked HUGH!!!
DiFi had some weird slow one word a second type speech.
Warner is OFF about how the Iraqi Parliement is taking 2 months off in July and August.
I have NEWS for him..these people are in danger 24/7...and in July and August it is 130 degrees outside...
I BETCHA HE would not be in Washington under those circumstances...
I just love their argument that Bush-the-Moron tricked them all! LOL
There’s got to be a T-shirt in there somewhere.
He is a moron ...but tricked them.
Hmmmmmmmmm.T-shirts are necessary..because a LOT of those people tricked by the Moron president are running for president...what does that make them??’
What is the step DOWN from moron?
It rhymes. ;-)
Logic has never been a strong suit for the Kennedys.
That liar, traitor, weasel Reid just said that he has had “many from the other side that have told me we are RIGHT, but they just can’t back it now”...
I HATE these people so much...
I heard that.
It gave me an instant headache.
I would LOVED for someone on the “other side” to just shout out “name names, Harry”...
The dems did not get Snowe or Collins. Nice work, Mitch.
The piece of crap passes 51/46.
No surprise...Hagel voted with the rats.....who didn’t vote?
We know Tim Johnson didn’t vote.
McCain is out of town.
The dems by this vote not only sent a message to all the terrorist
They also sent a message that the United States cannot be trusted and our word means NOTHING
Good going Dems ... you just screwed us all for YEARS to come
Dean: Bar Media and Candidates Will Talk
Liebermans floor statement http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1824005/posts
Audio: Sen. James Inhofe says Sen. Harry Reid should be recalled Bumped to include House passage of Iraq withdrawal bill
Over here Molly
Oh that was fast. Thanks JIm.
This guy is a LOON
Yeah...Gordon Smith and Hagel are officially lefties now.
Thanks...I see McCain and his little toady Graham didn’t vote
Hey Sen Coleman .. a little too late .. you shouldn’t have allowed it to get this far by voting for cloture
You failed our military and you failed our country
After that speech yesterday and he didn't vote? .. what a bleeping jerk
You just said what I have been thinking...
Normie is talking to his Minnesota constituents..”please don’t put ME in with the warmongers”...
I guess they don’t think it is important to have their names in the Congressional Record of having voted AGAINST this surrender bill.
I happen to think that it is important..and Smith and Hagel are worse...but to NOT be there for this vote, and have your name down for which “side” you are on, the American or the terrorist side...is indefensible..except for Sen. Tim Johnson.
I am sick of these frauds that only give a damn about themselves
One of these days when I have extra time .. I’m going to go research congressional records and the speeches given back during WWII and compare them to days war
Reid on FNC giving a presser and a CYA
calling this war an ethical challenge
all the cable channels just cut off Nancy
Guess they were afraid of what else she would say
Dang...I missed Reid and Nancy’s victory speech.
I have had on your NEW Senator...talking about how wonderful they are for listening to the will of the American people...pfffffft
Oh...thanks for the play by play.
If I couldn’t see it live, reading your reaction was almost like being there..LOL :0)
Hey Idiot Dems .. whats the point on giving them more money for a war they won’t be fighting since you are bringing them home?????
I really dislike these morons
Do these numbnuts know ANYTHING about history and how all our factory's were turned into war factory's back then????
Why didn’t Dorgan introduce bills, push for funding, if he thinks this is so important? I don’t recall him doing that.
These guys wouldn’t DARE refer to WW11 would they??
Because if they did, they would have to admit that our military served 4 YEARS without coming home for a year’s rest, like Murtha says is necessary.
Allard criticizing the Reid and Pelosi for not listening to Petraeus, for playing politics with the troops in the field, for not wanting to hear the truth...etc.
BTW..I just noticed that C-span is carrying that DEM debate tonight...so, if anyone wants to watch it..but NOT have to dirty their TVs with MSNBC (lol)...they can do it there.
Thanks, sleuthie. I really do not like to turn on MSNBC if I can possibly avoid it.
I hate to say this...but all of these people doing it NOW ...and on c-span 2, AFTER the vote...doesn’t cut it.
I know, I know, I am always crying because they don’t do that...but no one cares now!!
The vote is OVER..and the DEMS won....THEY will be able, with the MSM’s help, to shape the next story about this as how they DID fund the troops, but it was Pres. Bush that vetoed the bill..therefore HE is the bad guy, not them.
