That’s a mighty big promise to extract from a party of cowards.
Hold the line Ted!
Americans need someone to represent them on Capitol Hill. If the Republicans can’t or won’t do it, we’ll find somebody who can.
Give ‘em both barrels Senator Cruz.
Has Boehner seen this?
Until five years ago, the government was funded through the appropriations process, called Regular Order (piecemeal). Around a dozen separate appropriations bills, each covering one or two federal agencies, made their way through Congress. Some passed through Congress easily. Others took much longer and witnessed more sustained and impassioned debate, and sometimes a government shutdown, as occurred 7 or 8 times when Tip O'Neil was Speaker of the House of Representatives.
The partial government shutdown of 1995 was another example where piecemeal appropriations bills were passed by both houses.
Do you suppose that Reid can justify why he does not follow the normal protocol? Why is he insisting on an Omnibus bill when that is not the normal way to do business? Why is not the main stream media on this egregious error by the Senate Democrats?
The headline is misleading, and intended to put Cruz in a negative light.
This is INDEED Obama Reid ALL DEMOCRAT SHITDOWN!! BARRYCADES have been put up BY DEMOCRATS!!!
Get ‘em Ted.
He sure looks and sounds like a great leader in the making to me. I observe him getting better and better - a one hour, no notes, extemporaneous speech. Wow! No handlers needed, writing and controlling through teleprompter his every words. He may even rival Reagan before it’s over. He is fully engaged in the good fight to the end while espousing encouragement along the way to his followers, he is out campaigning and speaking in glowing terms of fellow Conservatives even when those Conservatives do not have the guts to fully embrace him. He is a man who knows who he is, a man of the people and not Washington.
My oldest daughter works for the federal government and is supposedly non-essential. She is telling everyone that she will take one for the team. Anything to reign in this federal government.
Hey RINO’s, primary time is coming:
[In the “oom-pah” spirit of Oktoberfest, an old classic:]
“WHO CAUSED THE SHUTDOWN” POLKA
(Tune: ‘Who Stole The Kishka?’)
Someone caused the shutdown,
Someone caused the shutdown,
Who caused the shutdown,
And made the spending shop.
Who caused the shutdown?
Cruz caused the shutdown!
Cruz caused the shutdown,
Someone call a cop!
Fat with bloat & pork it’s packed
That’s the stash from ol’ Barack.
Someone caused the shutdown
When we turned our backs...
Cruz caused the shutdown!
Cruz caused the shutdown!
Cruz caused the shutdown-
Bring the spending back!
He needs enough of the American public behind him to get what he wants done. I have no doubt that he has much more public support than any of the MSM want us to believe, but he may need more to get the likes of Boehner to stand with him instead of folding and crumpling.
Billy Boy was grinning like a simpering fool at the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative Foundation....notwithstanding the bombshell news that Clinton had employed a Muzzie terrorist....and the Clinton Foundations were outed for shady dealings. Read on.
THE CLINTON FOUNDATIONS / MUSLIM TERRORISM CONNECTION --- The recent story that a Muslim terrorist was working at the Clinton Foundation AND conducting terrorist activities at the same time, explains why the Clintons just remade themselves into the hallowed "Clinton Family Foundation."
The "Holy Family."
The Clintons' 24/7 self-promotion--a familiar do-good liberal schtick: whining about "helping" the needy, and hoping to make a buck on it.
The Clintons' shady proclivities are unveiled in the recent NYT story. Corruption, greed, entitlement, nepotism, cronyism. The Clintons didn't have a pot to *** in in Arkansas---never even had a home to call their own. Now they're multi millionaires.......the connivers have perfected the scam WRT gaming the govt system for themselves.
There needs to be a thorough going-over of the three Clinton Foundations. We need to know who pays/funds the Clinton's lifestyle/political ambitions---- especially b/c Hillary is running for prez. It is important to know to whom the Clinton's are truly indebted.
NY POST EXCERPT ----The Bill Clinton Foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses Bill Clintons foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses since 2003, an analysis of the nonprofits tax forms reveal.....includes $4.2 million in 2011 for the William J. Clinton Foundation (to which Hillary and Chelsea are attached); $730,000 for the Clinton Global Health Initiative; and $7.2 million for the Clinton Health Action Initiative (CHAI).
How many ways can the conniving Clintons use their name to launder money?
<><> The William J. Clinton Family Foundation......
<><> the Clinton Global Health Initiative......
<><> the Clinton Health Action Initiative (CHAI).
More importantly, what is the connection between Corzine's MF Global, Teneo (which paid Bill Clinton $50,000 per month), The Clintons multiple tax-exempt foundations, and Muslim money-Laundering?
The more cynical among us might wonder about : and the Clintons' Foundations are money laundering for the Muslim Brotherhood.
<><> Teneo Holdings---Clinton is Bd Chair---hirted out as strategic advisors,"
<><>Huma Abedin had State Dept special status" while a private contractor for Teneo Holdings,
<><> Obama pal Jon Corzine and his failed investment company (MFG "misplaced" $1.4 Billion)
<><> Corzine hired Teneo and Bill Clinton @ $50,000 PER MONTH.
LET'S STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE WITH BILL AND HILL As President, Bill Clinton made policies that raised hundreds of billions (if not trillions) of dollars for his obscenely-rich donor/pals.
His North American Free Trade initiative made it easy for, and even encouraged, corporations to outsource jobs and then import their products back into the U.S...... The repeal of Glass-Steagall on his watch sent Wall Street into the money-making frenzy that led to the Great Recession/Depression of 2008......and subsequent taxpayer bailouts.
In exchange for these obscene gifts of corporate welfare, at the expense of America's middle and working classes, you'd think the Clintons' rich friends would have no trouble coughing up a mere $250 million endowment for the foundation.
Now it seems, the captains of crony capitalism are begging off....they just don't feel they have enough money to help their old friends Bill and Hillary secure their so-called "legacy."
Sen Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) is probing Hillary aides employment status, asking how Huma Abedin got a sweetheart deal as a private six-figure consultant while at the State Department. Abedin and hubby, disgraced sexter/loser ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner, hauled in some $350,000 in outside income on top of Abedins $135,000 govt salary.
Abedin held special government employee status, and worked a sideline---as a private contractor. One of her clients was Bill CLinton's Teneo Holdings, a consulting firm that calls itself the next chapter in strategic advisory.
HUMAN EVENTS: Last Dec, a former employee of bankrupt MF Global accused former president Clinton----chairman of Teneo's advisory board----of collecting $50,000 per month through his Teneo advisory firm in the months before MFG careened towards its Halloween filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, as hundreds of millions of investor funds disappeared.
Teneo was hired by MF Globals former CEO Jon S. Corzine to improve his image and to enhance his connections with Clintons political family, said the employee, who asked that his name be withheld because he feared retribution, according to HE.
The Teneo contract with MF Global lasted at least five months, the souce said. The board cancelled it after Corzine resigned. The source, who is no longer associated with MF Global, said Teneo is a dual-track company with one side devoted to merchant and investment banking and the other side set up to provide image and strategy consulting services.
CAN YOU SAY MONEY LAUNDERING? The trustee for screwed MFG investors later sued JPMorgan bank for return of about $450M that MFG had transferred to the bank.
HOW MANY MONEY LAUNDERING SCAMS ARE THERE? LET US COUNT THE WAYS------Ponzi King Madoff screwed many but he also laundered money for tax-exempt foundations/groups that handed him millions of dollars.
When he went to jail, investigators found Madoff had stashed billions offshore---into a labyrinth of financial entities. Some $8.9 billion was funneled to Madoff through a dozen so-called feeder funds based in Europe, the Caribbean and Central America......a labyrinth of hedge funds, management companies and service providers that, to unsuspecting outsiders, seemed to compose a formidable system of checks and balances.
But the purpose of this complex architecture was just the opposite: the feeder funds provided different modes for directing/laundering money to Madoff in order to avoid federal scrutiny.
Hang in there Ted. Most of America will sign on to you in future elections.
It’s working, Obama is responding.
