    (CNSNews.com) – In reference to President Barack Obama’s pledge, during his State of the Union speech, to advance his agenda on climate change and the minimum wage by executive order, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said “executive orders are legal” and that he is “acting on behalf of the American people.” At the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday evening, CNSNews.com asked Rep. Lee, “What about the Republicans criticizing the use of executive orders when it comes to climate change and minimum wage – his use of executive orders?” Rep. Jackson Lee said, “As I was saying, [the address] was appealing to...

    Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) asked Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate election integrity org True the Vote and its associated Tea Party group, King Street Patriots, immediately before the IRS and DOJ began targeting the group in June 2010. Rep. Jackson Lee sent a letter to Holder which alleged that True the Vote was intimidating voters and their election monitors were crossing the line in unspecified “instances” of voter intimidation. The letter went on to directly assert that the “alleged events” were factual and that the True the Vote effort was behind the crimes. The letter offered no documented...

    What’s not to love about Sheila Jackson Lee? The Houston Democrat has represented Texas’s 18th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives since 1995. And legendary oddball public statements have presented journalists and political commentators with a veritable gold mine of bizarre malapropisms. She is truly a gift that keeps on giving. But earlier this week, Rep. Jackson Lee succeeded in lowering the bar of civil political discourse even further than her meanest critics could have predicted. In a rabble-rousing speech to some of her supporters, she suggested that George Zimmerman, the block-watch captain down in Florida who...

    Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee on Friday accused Newt Gingrich of using racial “code words” in calling President Barack Obama the “food stamp president” and saying schools ought to hire children to do janitorial work. The Texas congresswoman’s comments came in response to a question about remarks she made on the House floor Wednesday, when she said there are “candidates like Newt Gingrich who want to throw fuel and matches and fire to develop sort of an explosiveness in this country” and there are “underlying suggestions” to calling Obama the “food stamp president.” “These are code words. It’s inappropriate,” Jackson...

    Obamacare’s Penalty for Not Buying Insurance Isn’t Penalty ‘Because Penalty is Punishment,’ Says Rep. Sheila Jackson-LeeThursday, February 17, 2011 By Matt Cover Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D.-Texas) told the House Judiciary Committee yesterday that the “penalty” that the health-care law enacted last year by Congress imposes on individuals who do not buy health insurance is not in fact a penalty. The law itself states: “If an applicable individual fails to meet the requirement of subsection (a) [having a government-approved health-insurance policy]… there is hereby imposed a penalty with respect to the individual.” Elsewhere, in a section entitled “Payment of Penalty,” it...

    Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas) made headlines this week for claiming that health-care repeal means “killing Americans.” In an exchange with National Review Online at the Capitol tonight, she used China as an example of universal coverage. From the tape: JACKSON LEE: I was with a Chinese delegation in Texas on Sunday, and one [visitor] came up to me and said, ‘What is this debate about health care? We think this is something everybody should have in China.’ That’s what this person said to me; he was baffled. Of course, their system is different. NRO: They’re communist.

    The second a massive, unpopular government entitlement program enters its implementation phase, it instantaneously transforms into a sacrosanct Constitutional right. That's the word from noted Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX): Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee, a Democrat from Texas, said on Tuesday afternoon that repealing the national health care law would violate the Constitution. Arguing that the Commerce Clause provides the constitutional basis for ObamaCare, Jackson Lee said repealing the law by passing Republicans' H.R. 2 violates both the Fifth Amendment's right to due process and the Fourteenth Amendment's equal protection clause.

    This week brought us a Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-umb) twin-spin of lunacy, race hustling and a dose of geographic ignorance. Jackson Lee, who continues to champion the cause of securing American women the same rights that women in China, Algeria, Afghanistan and Rwanda enjoy (okay American ladies, altogether now, “Thanks Sheila!”), was in typical form at the NAACP convention this week. The convention was held in Kansas City, which of course isn’t far from Omaha — home of the beach where D-Day began after the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor. If possible, support Sheila Jackson Lee’s opponent, John Faulk.

    Here is truly shocking video of Democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee at a Town Hall Event in the Houston, Texas area, where she actually talked on her cell phone while a woman who said she is a cancer survivor tried to ask her question. The woman was making it clear she does not want a Government-controlled Health Care System when the crowd began to react to the fact Lee was talking on her phone. You can see her doing it on the video. How much more brazen can the Democrats become in their total disregard for the importance of the...

    The most bizarre moment of the Michael Jackson memorial a few weeks ago at the Staples Center in Los Angeles had to be the rambling speech delivered by Sheila Jackson Lee, the joke of a woman who happens to represent part of Houston in the United States Congress. (At the time, Roll Call reported that Jackson Lee “has a history of making cameo appearances at funerals” and that her staff used to “cull the obituaries” to “find funerals” for her to attend.) There she announced that she would introduce a resolution on the House floor listing every single one of...
  • CA: State senator(D) renews health care bill (REAL gov run socialized medicine bill)

    If legislative Democrats had their way, California might well be on its way to a government-run health care system. Both houses of the Legislature passed a bill last year to create a so-called "single-payer" system, only to have Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger veto it. Surrounded by union supporters and fellow liberal lawmakers, the leader of the single-payer movement, Sen. Sheila Kuehl, D-Santa Monica, said Tuesday that she will try again. Kuehl's central goal in Senate Bill 840 is to eliminate health insurance companies -- which she says ring up excessive profits and offer substandard coverage -- from the system. Instead, she...

    Do devastating hurricanes need help from affirmative action? A member of Congress apparently thinks so, and is demanding the storms be given names that sound "black." The congressional newspaper the Hill reported this week that Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, feels that the current names are too "lily white," and is seeking to have better representation for names reflecting African-Americans and other ethnic groups. "All racial groups should be represented," Lee said, according to the Hill. She hoped federal weather officials "would try to be inclusive of African-American names." A sampling of popular names that could be used include Keisha,...
