The same old names week after week. I think Schumer lives only for Sundays so he can get before another camera. Durbin, Cornyn, Graham... nothing new here, move along...
Interesting lineup this week. While we are being distracted by Obama’s visits to classrooms, Congress is getting ready for the showdown!
Ryan, Rubio, Sessions and Rogers have something to say this week.
Only one missing is mccain. Wonder when Thumper....I mean Trump will start showing up.
Looks like a one show trick pony this week. All eyes will be on Marco.
Chris Wallass must be trying to do a rope-a-dope hoping no one will notice he's still a DBM commontator,very common.
“Sens. Dingy Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Ms. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C” -— made me LOL!!
We now have enough screwups by the left that if used properly we should be able to knock them off in 2012.
But liberal media suck-up Wallace will again screw-up what could be important and informative interviews with his disingenuous Leftist MSM anti-conservative gotchas as he continuously tries to impress and thus hope to be employed by his Daddy's "60 (Mendacious) Minutes."
Thanks AB. Hum, Butler and UConn. Who would have thunk it?
good morning wishes to my patriot friends here.
cold & crisp in NE Ohio
busy day, next few days.
Please control the world in my absence?
And if we’re really lucky NYC will get Anthony Weiner as their Mayor.
So well deserved!!!!!!
"The people must fear their government;
the government should never fear its people.
This is why the DNC and MSM today will
label the Tea Party and any conservative American as 'extreme'.
How dare they speak out, and demand documentation,
transparency or accountability?"
Truth is I have to question the wisdom over fighting for for the difference between 30 and 60 billion dollars in cuts in a 1.63 trillion dollar deficit year which is what Boehner is faced with.
Is it better to just take whatever we can get and then do a campaign second to none for the next 18 months showing how the rats are hell bent on destroying the country? And then go for huge margins in 2012,really our best chance and possibly best strategy.
We stand to gain nothing since dingy still runs the Senate and zero is potus.
In addition the DBM are just salivating at the chance to destroy us by claiming that we only want to shut the govt. down.
One can only see salivating DNC Dave types crawling all over the liberal world searching high and low for anyone who will claim that the govt. shutdown has ruined their lives.
Then they play it over and over and over until their job is done.
We can not get what we want through the two barriers of the Senate and pouts no matter what we do.
If I could only caricature him with a weiner dogs' head and tail it would be perfect!
Just too good!
Morning AB, All
.Greetings from the swamps of Delaware.
Later in the thread I have more on the saga of Sussex County Delaware as we try to wrest control of the Republican party from the Blue Blood Ruling Class Elite up round Wilmington Way.
For after months of grass roots organization, fights, mockery, degradation, lies, pitchforks and tar, finally a censure resolution was passed for the Chair of Sussex county. And, finally, he agreed to resign...dear Lord, dear Lord, it’s been like pulling teeth with these people.
BUT...but,but,but,but,but .Mr. Ron Sams is not going to leave BEFORE the upcoming May GOP convention in Dover when the plan is to kick the awful, awful, Tom Ross outta there. So why wait? Also, Sams cancelled the normal monthly April meeting, why?
Folks, these people are more vicious than that escaped NY Viper who twitters humorously from atop the Empire State building. For they are more vicious to us, their own base, than they’ve ever been with their Democratic friends as they reach across the aisle, bashing us base heathens in the face, spitting upon us, mocking us, as they do so.
We do not trust them for they lie, cheat, deceive, distort and mock. So a bunch of the Grass roots types here in the swamps, following the rules as written, something the Blue Blood Ruling Class GOP hates...this concept of following rules to do stuff that THEY do not deem, with a sniff, best for their snooty interests .these Grass Roots folks got signatures, proxies and per the rules arranged an April meeting because the liars from Wilmington plan on keeping their power and we’re not going to let them.
At this April meeting, the plan is to kick out a lot of the wannabe nothing-burgers who align themselves as voting reps here in Sussex county because they have nothing going for them but to hone in with those they consider superior that the Blue Blood should rub off on them.
These grass roots people have been meeting night after night, re-writing the rules, following the rules, working within the framework, paying their own money for on air commercials .I’m so proud of them.
Anyway, heh .I can’t claim much credit for much of it except, on a very superficial level, I am the “scribe”. It’s simple work really. I write them emails to boost up their morale, I post on the local Blog boards and as much as you might find this hard to believe, me fingertips can be quite vicious. I do believe in fighting fire with fire.
Well hell yeah, they use these Alinsky tactics on us I’m gonna give it right on back.
Go with me here, I’m capable.
So later in the thread, as the Sunday talk shows die down a bit, I’ll tell how yours truly is now knee deep, on a known name basis, in this matter and heh...well maybe you hadda be there.
The drama involves an email went out from a very influential wannabe Blue Blood mocking the arranged April meeting and this caused me to take keyboard in hand. An email list distributed to almost a hundred thousand here in the swamps and here in Delaware this is a lot.
We move on to marriage proposals and my acidic response being read on the local yokel radio air and
Well hell’s bells .if it’s happening here in Sussex, I somehow, without even going to a meeting one, get myself in the middle of it all.
Singing at the 10am mass this morning, will join in when I return .keep up the attention, I am counting on you all.
“I will look for Wallass to demagogue the spending bill and push for pubbies as “extreme” to try for spending cuts.”
Wallace will ask every Repuplican if they want to shut down the government despite the fact that the ONLY people who ever talk about a government shutdown are Dems.(media included)
From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in LOVE, as each part does its work. Living as Children of Light Eph 4:16
Present Obama is halfway to his stated goal of $8-10/gal so he gives a victory speech stating the benefits of communist slavery. He claimed to care about drilling going to the tried and true evil oil companies not drilling the leases they have. He didnt mention simply because you have a lease doesnt mean you have a permit to drill or there is oil under every lease, while he has put a dictate on issuing permits. Between his stopping drilling in the Gulf and Alaska as well as protecting the environment we are going to be starved to destruction which is his lifelong goal.
Communism is a repressive caste system of economics while Capitalism is a truly free and equitable form. We are seeing the formation of that caste with the haves being the federal and public workers having all the benefits while the private sector is now the lower caste. They maintain their system just like the Soviet Union did through corrupt politicians who are maintained by a corrupted election process which is fed by those federal workers using their unions as a cash machine for the corrupt politicians. One of the only ways to enforce this system is to hold the lower caste down through higher fuel costs and repressive regulations. This is what we have now with the Ohbummer regime making sure the lower caste doesnt escape their enslavement through class movement as America has been famous.
He will make his upper caste larger and wealthier through DeathCare which will replace all of the insurance industry with more federal upper caste workers. Through the EPA he is forcing businesses to install expensive CO2 technology which is a fraudulent pollutant making the private employees caste become even more enslaved to higher energy bills and lower wages due to companies having to transfer more expenses to his boondoggles. Now finally he is reaching his goal of the minimizing of oil production from our own resources to destroy the private economy and make this the commie utopia he has taught in his academic world he was brainwashed into.
The way communism works is the Inner Circle has all the benefits while everybody outside of the Circle has to pay for their lifestyles the rest of their lives. They tend to go on lavish trips and have Swiss bank accounts to provide them nice Dachas in the countryside while the workers are buying high priced gas and food through an inefficient central gummit. They sell their lavish lifestyles to the masses as equality and spreading the wealth but what it really is, is stealing the wealth for themselves while everybody except their Inner Circle suffers. The only city in the Soviet Union that never suffered under pure communism is Moscow just like the only city here not being affected by this Depression is DC. The corrupt pols of the Inner Circle have built their system and are now enjoying the fruits while everyone else are getting their pits.
How did we get here? Simple, they closed down all the oil drilling which they realized is the lifeblood of creating wealth and freedom for the common man. They have made every place there is oil and energy resources into a natural refuge to keep the drilling out and their lifestyles maintained. You certainly dont see any poor Sierra Club members but plenty of poor gas station attendants. This is by design from the Stalinists who control our country and especially the White House. They know if there were plentiful source of oil then the prices would come down and people would be able to buy and travel wherever they wanted without their being able to control it. This would likely lead to expansion of the Country and more exploitation of their resources and a diversification of power which is their greatest fear. So they hide behind the cute polar bears and caribou and use them to attach the chains to our legs while they fatten their Swiss accounts.
We need to open the Gulf and the Alaskan arctic to put gas in the American tank. During the BP accident we learned that one of the advantages of deep drilling is by the time the oil makes the surface it is pretty much diluted which minimized the damage so it is far safer than even most skeptics thought. We have been repressed by these commie libs for long enough and is time to let capitalism and the invisible hand do what it does best, eliminate the caste system. Obviously the upper caste is going to fight this and is fighting it with everything they have. In the end all they have is what we give them so their intimidation, corruption and crony communism is paid for by the lower caste. Now the lowers are beginning to become aware of this two tiered system and are revolting which is terrifying the upper class. We have to demand the return to exploration and drilling as well as coal mining and gas development in every corner of this Country. When we have a plentiful supply of energy only then will we have a truly free Country that will once again be the engine for jobs around the planet.
It is not only time to open these areas but take away the set asides which were simply tools to suppress our economy. Those so called environmental protection areas like the clean coal areas in Utah that Clinton locked up for the Riady family should be opened for mining and expand clean coal energy in the west and China. Also the removal of the same tactic for a million acres in Montana by obama should be lifted and the coal dug there. This has become a pattern of the commie libs to eliminate the development of our resources by declaring anywhere there is energy to call it a refuge and continue to strangle our economy. This tactic should be eliminated and begin to sell these lands off to prospective energy developers.
When that happens and America begins to rebuild itself into the once powerful and free Country it was then we can go back to Every Man having unalienable rights of Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. The capitalistic system has no castes it believes everybody is equal and has an equal chance at success through hard work, risk and providing a valuable service. Our founders did not fight the Revolutionary War against a Monarchy and its class system to have it replaced by the commie castes. There is only one true path to freedom and that is by way of cheap energy, capitalism and God. Commie libs want to shortcut this path for their own selfish greed. Demand our right to develop Americas resources.
Pray for America
Lucky for them they have the DBM on their side claiming that if we cut govt. spending the economy l will suffer.(talk about contorted logic!)
Bottom line, they have been setting us up for this moment for along time.
They are all primed to let lose a campaign of how horrible we are for shutting down the govt. even if it's their fault! Lies are tough to over come. We should avoid rat traps whenever and wherever we can. The ramifications can be tragic.
We have to out smart them in strategy as much as logic. Logic has little place in dem voters minds and you gotta wonder about the npas as well.
The first question that I would ask any guest about the budget is, “how did Americans survive on the budget of every year before 2009 - the year that Obama raised expenditures by almost twenty-five percent.
Here’s a little sentence from the Wikipedia entry on the budget: In relative terms, from 2003-2007 the government spent roughly $1.20 for each $1.00 it collected in taxes. This increased to $1.40 in FY2008 and $1.90 in FY2009.
Forgot to give you a thank you AB for doing this thread.
consider it given.
Before heading off to mass, heh, folks...GERALDO’S IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CROSSFIRE!
You got to see it guys....Geraldo...gotta love/hate the guy.
Also, Bray, liked your essay.
About this oil thing....the other day on a Fox money type of show they were talking about oil.
The very first thing this young sweet liberal dolt of a lass, got not a brain rattling around in her empty skull, says...”We gotta stop our dependence on oil.”
I could not believe our ears. WHY? We use oil because we need it, yes we are dependent on it to run our machinery but why do we have to stop it.
Well these thoughts going around in my head and another guest pundit put it, as difficult as it may be to believe, perfectly:
“Saying we have to cut our dependence on oil is like saying we have to cut our dependence on fresh water? WHY?”
Paul Ryan is shocking the world with his 5 Trillion in cuts.
Pray for America
THANKS AB!!! YOU ARE PART OF MY SUNDAY AM RITUAL!!
“Sens. Dingy Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Ms. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.”
ha....almost missed it, did a double take!
Many of the libs have been coached an told to go on show after show trying to show the futility of drilling and searching for energy in our own country by using statistics that have been so gerrymandered it borders on the twilight zone.
First and foremost one must understand that most of the drillable or energy zone areas, lands etc. where energy in the form of gas, oil etc. can be found have been declared off limits by enviro-Marxists.
This took 30 or 40 years but, like muzzies that they revere, they are persistent. While we focus on the next 90 days their long term goal thinking has severely defeated our efforts to supply energy to our own country.
When the rats get up in front of the cameras and claim that we have only 2% of the worlds' reserves they know that they have already made the other 95% out of bounds!
If truth were told using their ratios we have 40% of the worlds known reserves, a huge amount of energy but they will never admit that since they have successfully closed off 95% of areas where energy can be found.
We need to straighten out the messages that are getting out or pay the price for not doing so.
I like Ryan.
He can talk without having to rely on political gobbledygook-speak and without a script or teleprompter or a thousands uhs and ummmms and yaknows. He knows his subject.
He says his plan can save over $4 Trillion in 10 years.
He says Medicare/Medicaid/Social Security are unsustainable at current rates.
[That isn’t OUR fault, Rep. Ryan. That is the fault of Congress for stealing money from the SS/Medicare fund for decades. Citizens paid in to Medicare/SS in good faith. Congress stole those funds.]
“We don’t need a good politician. We need a strong leader.”
[Agree. But not many of the top tier or tier 2 names seem to demonstrate strong leadership.]
Paul Ryan on Obama launching his re-election campaign now: “We don’t need a good politician! We need a strong leader!”
Rubio coming up. WhooHoo!
Your post was a breath of fresh air as I listen to the Moronic Durbin....he reminds me of my management at work..ha.
Wonder if Whoraldo will open one of Kadhaffi’s safes???
He is hilarious and provides comic releif in such tense times!
If its not focused and poll tested it does not exist.
Give me one good reason why we can't get by with 200 billion per month that we take in? Its all BS! All a shift away from capitalism to communism in a matter of months while few are looking.
Zero just did a spot on TV that stated that the pubbies want to shut down the govt. just when the economy was turning around.
Few got the meaning behind his words but what I took it to mean is that if you shut down the govt.,which now is the job producer,you can damage the economy!! Anyone get that? How scary if we are dependent on govt. for jobs!!
Zero has already made the shift in his mind! It's up to his regime to convince the rest of us. It's the pathway to Communism or bust!!
Good morning, AB. Ret. Gen Jim Jones on ABC agrees with Sec. Gates that Libya is not in US’ vital interests (national security). We are transitioning to a support role.....only the US could have “gotten” there as fast as they did.
Jones says it’s encouraging to see allies stepping up like they haven’t done before. Christiane asks what is the end game? Jones - this is the difficult piece....when Ghaddafi goes, we don’t know who the opposition is.
Christiane asks who is the opposition. Jones responds he personally does not know (.....again). First thing is to find out who they are. (why are we helping “them” if everyone agrees we don’t know who they are???!!!)
Christiane - isn’t that troubling that we don’t know who they are? Jones - this was a pop us mission that came quickly.
(Maybe Christiane should have asked, “What DO we know?”. This whole conversation was about what we DON’T know)
Nancy Pelosi has passed on her wisdom to Schumer and it appears the current favorite “word” is no longer “word” but “extreme”
Silly Democrat rabbits, there’s always a new favorite word they can use from their talking points. Words have meanings, unless you’re a Democrat and then words are simply deices to use to gain power and money unless the voter wakes up to what you are doing.
What you are saying is that they are laying one rat trap after another for us an they expect us to get caught up in each and everyone and I hope we don't.
Typo? Or, just for giggles...which I had!
Rubio makes so much sense, he really speaks for us!
For the dems to throw Soetoro under the bus would be to admit their mistake initially. A very rare chance of occuring.
Well done Bray
Paul Ryan has guts to put up a plan to fix SSI and Medicare. The real fix is to eliminate them but they have become socialist institutions. We have to eliminate them one step at a time and he is taking a huge step.
This will be the battle of 2012.
Pray for America
Kinda like Stalin or Hitler at a prayer meeting!!
It's like zero talking about the necessity for everyone to have their own long form birth certificate of suffer the consequences!!
Where do you find this stuff!!!
“Words mean exactly what I want them to meannothing more and nothing less.” (Lewis Carroll, Alice through the Looking Glass).
We should remind the dems who appear on these shows who it was that said the above words: Humpty Dumpty!
Just think *Humpty Dumpty* whenever we watch any of these dem “spokesmen.”
You are a better Freeper than I. Just couldn’t take MTP today, too many rats in too short a time.
ABC, Christiane talking about the “Shutdown Showdown”. (Ooooohhhh, democrats have agreed to cut 33 Billion dollars in the next so many months. I am SO impressed.)
Rajivh Shah (obama admin official) claimes the Republican proposals will kill kids. Yes, KILL KIDS.
Mr. Extreme, (Schumer) and Sen. Sessions are on. Sessions - We are headed to a fiscal crisis if we don’t do something NOW.
Mr. Extreme - doesn’t think there will be a shutdown. The $33 billion in cuts is reasonable. Doesn’t want to cut programs that help create jobs (govt ones, most likely)
Sessions - one of the reasons unemployment is so high is the threat of the defecit. Tells Christiane that the Tea Party painting the Republicans into a corner is only Democrat “spin”.
LOL, so what does Mr. Extreme do?......spins the tale that the Tea Party is “extreme” and holding the Republicans hostage. Christiane plays “the tape”.
