  • The NSA Admits It Analyzes More People's Data Than Previously Revealed

    As an aside during testimony on Capitol Hill today, a National Security Agency representative rather casually indicated that the government looks at data from a universe of far, far more people than previously indicated. Chris Inglis, the agency's deputy director, was one of several government representatives—including from the FBI and the office of the Director of National Intelligence—testifying before the House Judiciary Committee this morning. Most of the testimony largely echoed previous testimony by the agencies on the topic of the government's surveillance, including a retread of the same offered examples for how the Patriot Act and Foreign Intelligence Surveillance...

    If only this were a coalition of the left and the right working out differences. But alas, it’s just a coalition of mostly liberal politicians who used to label themselves by a political party and now would rather fly stealth. Sigh. If you are not familiar with “No Lables”, no worries, it’s brand new and they certainly deserve a Hat Tip for brevity. Here’s their declaration: We are not labels – we are people. We care deeply about our country. We are frustrated and concerned about the tone of politics. We are passionate about addressing America’s challenges. We are Democrats,...
  • Republicans Learn the Perils of Being Politically Incorrect on Climate Change

    The New York Times ^ | November 22, 2010 | EVAN LEHMANN
    Defeat came for Republican Rep. Bob Inglis because he slid to "Satan's side." That's how South Carolina voters perceive Inglis' newfound belief in climate change, says the outgoing lawmaker, who lost his primary bid in June to tea party candidate, and now representative-elect, Trey Gowdy. Inglis reflected on several blasphemies he committed in the eyes of voters in a departing interview last week, held in his congressional office. They ranged from opposing President George W. Bush's troop surge in Iraq to supporting his Troubled Asset Relief Program. But none of those, Inglis said, had as strong an impact as his...
  • Rep. Inglis: Tea Party rhetoric hurts GOP (ousted RINO defends Obama, says he is not a "dictator")

    The Hill, Washington, DC ^ | 2010-09-21 | Shane D'Aprile
    Rep. Bob Inglis (R-S.C.), who lost his Republican primary earlier this year at the hands of a Tea Party-backed candidate, suggested Tuesday that rhetoric on the right is hurting the credibility of the GOP. In an interview on CNN's "American Morning," Inglis said the tone against President Obama is too harsh and very often false. "It's also not true that he's a Muslim," said Inglis. "It's not true that he wants to take over as a dictator. These things — we need to get rid of these things so we can build on credible, solid information."

    Chris Matthews and Charlie Crist got so slobbery over each other Friday night that all reason and historical perspective was shed quicker than clothes in a parked car with Sam Cooke singing Don’t Know Much About History on the radio. CRIST: The 14th Amendment should stay the way it is …That’s the way it’s always been. Ummm, Sorry Charlie, if it was the way it had “always been,” it wouldn’t be in an amendment. But aside from the fact that it was passed in 1868, some mention that it was written to include the children of slaves would have been...

    Chris Matthews on Friday actually asked a GOP Congressman if Republicans oppose President Obama because of his race. On the 5PM installment of MSNBC's "Hardball," Matthews brought on Rep. Bob Inglis, the Congressman from South Carolina who easily lost his primary fight in June to Tea Party candidate Trey Gowdy and has been badmouthing his Party ever since. Early in the conversation, Matthews asked, "What is it that`s gotten into your Party`s water supply, the Republican Party`s water supply, that makes them strangely hostile to the president, not just against his policies, but personally? Is it race?" Fixated on racial...

    (snip) Until recently, Mr Graham was known as the most moderate Republican senator on immigration – his friend, John McCain, having abandoned that post in his fight to retain the nomination for his Arizona Senate seat. Mr McCain is on track to fend off the challenge later this month from J.D. Hayworth, a former talk radio host, whose campaign has focused entirely on immigration. Helping Mr McCain may also partly explain Mr Graham’s uncharacteristic change of tune. “If Senator McCain hadn’t moved to the right on immigration, he would probably be facing a battle for his political life right now,”...
  • Tea party activists say Graham out of touch (as defeated RINO Inglis attacks conservatives)

    U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham is in hot water again with tea party activists for his comments that their movement cannot endure "because they can never come up with a coherent vision for governing the country." It's an opinion Graham has expressed before, but it drew national attention recently in a profile published in The New York Times as he was leaving for the Middle East during the Senate's Fourth of July recess. Ralph Billeter, 76, said he heard it on Fox News and it reinforced to him that Graham, a Republican from Seneca, is out of touch with the people...

    Too many Republican leaders are acquiescing to a poisonous "demagoguery" that threatens the party's long-term credibility, says a veteran GOP House member who was defeated in South Carolina's primary last month. While not naming names, 12-year incumbent Rep. Bob Inglis suggested in interviews with The Associated Press that tea party favorites such as former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and right-wing talk show hosts like Glenn Beck are the culprits. He cited a claim made famous by Palin that the Democratic health care bill would create "death panels" to decide whether elderly or sick people should get care.

    Rep. Bob Inglis (R-S.C.), who lost his primary in part because he was openly critical of Glenn Beck and told his conservative constituents not to believe everything they hear on Fox, is letting loose now that he's not on the ballot. Pointing a finger at Beck, Sarah Palin and such conservative figures, Inglis told AP: “There were no death panels in the (healthcare) bill … and to encourage that kind of fear is just the lowest form of political leadership. It’s not leadership. It’s demagoguery,’’ said Inglis, one of three Republican incumbents who have lost their seats in Congress to...

    The Associated Press is lost. It can’t understand what’s going on in America this year, and its hopeless attempts to come up with an explanation are leading it to indulge some of the year’s biggest losers in their predictable exercises in blame-deflection – mixed in, of course, with the AP’s usual propaganda disguised as news. All propaganda. I give you, Congressman (but not for long) Bob Inglis, Republican of South Carolina. Mr. Inglis was destroyed in his primary this year by local prosecutor Trey Gowdy. How badly destroyed? How about by 42 percentage points? That’s pretty destroyed. Now, many people...

    WASHINGTON - U.S. Rep. Bob Inglis is paying the price for independent thinking. Inglis, a Travelers Rest Republican, might have been the only Republican lawmaker in the country booed lustily by his own constituents at town hall meetings last month.Inglis was shouted down when he asked listeners why they're afraid of President Barack Obama - and then suggested they stop watching conservative TV commentator Glenn Beck."He's trading on fear," Inglis advised one group, setting off loud catcalls. Despite a broadly conservative voting record, Inglis has angered many GOP activists with his contrarian stands on a handful of high-profile issues. In...

We are all coping in our private lives with personal issues. That would be like saying Sarah Palin shouldn’t be governor of Alaska because she has a special needs child. Gov.

    South Carolina Rep. Bob Inglis made a name for himself in the late 1990s as one of Bill Clinton's most zealous pursuers, an impeachment "manager" who attacked the moral failings of the president with a gusto that earned him a devoted following in the staunchly conservative "Upstate" of conservative South Carolina. But with his governor now felled by similar temptations, Inglis sees an opening for the Republican Party, a chance to "lose the stinking rot of self-righteousness" and "to understand we are all in need of some grace." This is not "Bob Inglis 1.0," the one that was a "self-righteous"...

    Conservatives have warned of the disastrous economic effects of Barack Obama’s proposed cap-and-trade system and the massive burdens it will impose on American families. Republicans have derided it as a tax, and a particularly regressive one, that will force working-class earners to choose between heat, lighting, and food. In response, House conservatives have proposed … a carbon tax?

    WASHINGTON -- Five weeks after Rep. Bob Inglis broke with his party and his president to vote against the U.S. troop surge in Iraq, the South Carolina Republican is engaged in an all-out effort to save his seat. Inglis, one of 17 House Republicans who opposed the troop increase, is sending his constituents multiple mailings, calling local GOP activists, even posting an unusual video of himself explaining his vote on his congressional Web site. Saying he feared the surge "would actually send the wrong message to the Iraqi leadership," Inglis explains that the United States should set deadlines for specific...

    WASHINGTON - Rep. Bob Inglis of South Carolina voted Friday against President Bush's dispatch of more troops to Iraq, joining just 16 other Republican lawmakers who opposed the surge in a House vote. After the vote, Inglis said it was one of the most difficult decisions of his more than eight years in Congress. "I saw this vote as a vote of conscience, rather than a vote of representation," Inglis said in an interview. "I consciously tried to disregard the political consequences." Inglis said his office had received at least 250 calls about the vote, mainly from constituents, and he...
