    In what appears to be yet another desperate House Democrat attempt to stay relevant while in the minority, Rep. Lynn Woolsey accused General David Petraeus of using a “Charlie Sheen counter-insurgency strategy” in Afghanistan. Speaking at the Congressional Progressive Caucus Peace and Security Task Force, Woolsey made the comments while hearing testimony from Rolling Stone writer Michael Hastings and other military experts: Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.) on Wednesday sharply criticized David Petraeus, the commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, and signaled agreement with an assessment from a Rolling Stone editor who likened the commander’s performance to that of...

    Six former members of Congress to hear space alien testimony By Justin Sink - 04/29/13 11:29 AM ET Six former members of Congress have signed up for a week of congressional-style testimony on the existence of space aliens. The hearing, which will occur this week at the National Press Club, will feature some 30 hours of testimony on the possible existence of extraterrestrials and be recorded for a documentary film. Around three dozen researchers and academics are expected to testify. Participants will include ex-Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Alaska), and ex-Reps. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.), Rep.

    Lynn Woolsey, phone home. The former North Bay congresswoman is one of six former members of Congress taking testimony at a public hearing this week at the National Press Club on what the U.S. government really knows about extraterrestrial life. Yes. Really. "The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race will attempt to accomplish what the Congress has failed to do for forty-five years -- seek out the facts surrounding the most important issue of this or any other time," according to the hearing's website. Also plumbing the final frontier's mysteries this week are former...

Woolsey to join panel debating cover-up of alien life on Earth Guy Kovner Retired Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey of Petaluma will help preside over a five-day media event aimed at revealing evidence of an “extraterrestrial presence” and a decades-long government effort to cover it up.

    Democrats in House of Reps. joined J Street in supporting Obama administration's attempt to force Israel into making painful concessions Seventy-four Democrats in the House of Representatives have joined the dovish J Street organization in supporting the Obama administration's attempt to force Israel into making painful concessions to the Palestinian Authority. “In our view, support for a two-state resolution is inseparable from such support for Israel, its special relationship with the United States, and its very survival as a democratic homeland for the Jewish people,” the letter said. Seven Jewish members signed the letter, including Reps. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), John...

    With the clock ticking on her final term in office, Rep. Lynn Woolsey visited Point Reyes Station Thursday night and shared some frank opinions on Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, the Tea Party, Afghan President Hamid Karzai, President Obama and the Occupy movement. SNIP Press asked Woolsey for her assessment of Newt Gingrich, since they served together in Congress. Woolsey said, "He's got a brain but he overreaches; he's too big for his own good. He would be the worst president on earth." Press asked Woolsey if that meant she would prefer a President Michele Bachmann. "Probably, because — well she's...

    The top-ranking Republican on homeland security issues in the House said he would support President Obama if he had to request more money from Congress to continue U.S. military operations in Libya. Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, stressed that the U.S. needs to “take out Gadhafi” but that Obama needs to tell lawmakers exactly what the White House’s end-game scenario is going forward. “I want us to take out Gadhafi,” said King on CNN’s John King on Friday evening. “I want this effort to be successful. I just don't think it's been thought...

    A grown woman in public office who acts like Lindsay Lohan has no business comparing one of America's finest generals to Charlie Sheen. But anti-war Democratic Rep. Lynn Woolsey has never shown any restraint when it comes to trashing America's military leaders before the world. That's because being a Code Pink liberal -- like being a Hollywood brat -- means never having to apologize for your reckless words and deeds. Woolsey took to the House floor on Wednesday to report on her "Congressional Progressive Caucus Peace and Security Task Force" hearing with critics of the Afghanistan war. She parroted Rolling...

    The American Thinker ^ | January 08, 2011 | Nancy Morgan
    My nephew, Lance Corporal Lee Morgan, will be deploying to Afghanistan next Friday. This will be his second tour of duty there. Lee will be putting his life on the line, once again, fighting a war which is described by Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA) as "an epic failure, a national embarrassment and a moral blight." While my nephew is risking his life to fight the war on terror, Ms. Woolsey is exercising her right to polish her moral vitaes (on the backs of others) by blithely passing judgment on what the Obama administration has re-defined as merely an "overseas contingency...
  • California Congresswoman Thinks Obama Is “Center-Right”

    President Barack Obama is center-right? Go figure, I thought he was a far left liberal. My bad. * Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.), co-chair of the Progressive Caucus in the House, says she and other liberals are counting on Rep. Nancy Pelosi to pull on President Obama’s “shirttails to make sure he doesn’t move from center-right to far-right,” the Associated Press reported Wednesday. Republican leaders may be surprised to hear the president described politically as “center-right,” but they are expected to meet with him after Thanksgiving to see if they can reach agreement on any of the legislation before the lame-duck...

    Both House leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus are throwing their support behind Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) in his race against Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) for minority whip. "I support Mr. Clyburn. They both have been effective leaders, but Jim Clyburn is our whip, and he’s been a good whip,” the co-chairwoman of the caucus, Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.), told The Hill. Woolsey said the group’s co-chairman, Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.), was also backing Clyburn, although the caucus as a whole was not taking a position in the intra-party battle. “We’ll be working it [for Clyburn], but not for the...

    Washington Post ^ | 7/21/2010 | Noam N. Leavy
    WASHINGTON - At a time when both political parties are worrying about the federal deficit, an unexpected and unorthodox proposal is coming back from the shadows of last year's health-care debate the "public option." The idea of creating a major government health insurance program was roundly rejected last year, but the 128 House Democrats pushing to reconsider the idea are now advancing the argument that it would help hold down federal spending. Their bill, which faces long odds, would allow Americans who do not get insurance at work to choose a government plan for their health coverage starting in 2014....

    An overflow crowd of about 1,200 people attended a boisterous town hall meeting Monday night in Petaluma on the national health overhaul, many expressing support for a proposed government-run program and others shouting it down. Nearly 100 shut out of overflowing meeting The two-hour meeting, run by Democratic Rep. Lynn Woolsey, was the first and only chance for many Sonoma and Marin County residents to ask questions and air comments before Congress reconvenes after Labor Day to consider the pending legislation. Dozens spoke on both sides of the debate amid constant jeers and chants from an audience that filled every...

    Anti-war activists vowed they will have long memories about the deal Democratic leaders struck with the Bush administration this week on Iraq war funding, warning that they will exact retribution from lawmakers in both parties in 2008. Enraged by what they considered capitulation by Democrats, anti-war leaders vowed to redouble their efforts at defeating the next funding request when it comes up as expected in September. The group MoveOn.org, which previously had been an ally of the Democratic leadership on the war issue, in a statement raised the specter of "in-district advertising and recruitment of primary challengers" as punishment for...

    Uh-oh. It looks like DUmmie ruggerson is about to head for a Tombstoning ceremony for uttering these heretical words, "Cindy Sheehan Does NOT Speak For Me," in this THREAD. Whenever a DUmmie shows a brief Kewpie Doll moment of mental clarity, he is almost certain to be flamed bigtime by his fellow DUmmies. And to speak ill of sacred leftist icon, Cindy Sheehan, is sacrilege among the Left. As for Cindy's attempted protest last night against the President, I wonder if Cindy will also try to protest against her buddy Hugo Chavez when his term of office ends in...

    Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey Fundraiser Saturday February 04 Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey, the first Member of Congress to call on the President to bring our troops home, will be in Los Angeles on Saturday February 4th for a very exciting but critical fundraiser against the most well-known, well-financed challenger she's ever faced. She is facing a primary challenge from a termed-out Assemblyman Joe Nation, a moderate Democrat who has been critical of her stand on the war and on bringing home our troops. He is raising money from people who have given money to Tom DeLay and Bush-Cheney and his legislative district...
