The Trifecta Of Genius

Here we see the Trifecta of Genius seeking to impeach President DJT. One questioned a Navy Admiral under oath if Guam would tip over in the Pacific with to many U.S.Marines, one brought a bucket of Fried Chicken to a congressional committee hearing, and the other, who wears what looks like a go-cart tire on her head, once questioned NASA fight controllers why the Mars Rover didn't land and take pictures of the Apollo 11 landing site. 

Ladies and Gentlemen, a Democrat Impeachment Tour de Force......

Johnson - Cohen - Jackson Lee

Some Check and see if this rambling idiot every even graduated from high school.

Adam Schiff's Circus Comes Complete With Drag Queen

MRC - Spotted towering over the gray and blue suits packed into the first day of President Donald Trump’s impeachment hearing was an enormous blond wig — that of Pissi Myles, a drag performer from Asbury Park, New Jersey.  Pissi Myles, as he likes to call himself (please Lord, we hope that doesn’t mean what we think it means), apparently fancies himself a journalist with a valid interest in covering impeachment politics. 

Pissi, a clearly overweight male, was wearing an offensively red, way-too-short dress, sparkly red heels, and a curly blonde wig so ostentatious that Honey Boo Boo would have fainted on sight.  It’s a nice reminder of just how much of a circus the Dems’ attempt at removing Trump is, with freaks like Pissi Myles being the enthusiastic rent-a-clowns. It says a lot about the Democratic party when drag queens have become their shock troopers. reported on the attendance of “the award-winning drag performer,” composing a headline that would have made the founding fathers seriously contemplate abandoning their American experiment. Read it and weep: “Drag Queen Sashays into Trump Impeachment Hearing.”

The most outlandish part of it all was that Miss Myles had her reporting rig all set up and ready to go. She was holding her phone with an extension arm, had her headphones in, and was giving viewers an up close and personal account of the morning’s proceedings.

NBCNews asked Miles how his day was going, to which he replied in classic camp fashion, “It’s a crazy day in Washington! I’m flipping my wig over the high-energy proceedings today.” Hmm, wow. Though Pissi was comically aware of the spectacle he generated, adding, “Tensions are high, and the bar for who’s allowed in the Longworth House is very, very low.”

You can say that again.

Dems Hatch Another Crazy Idea To Become Your Governmental Overlords

NKT - Not unlike Democrats’ efforts to pack the Supreme Court with liberal justices, this appears to be yet another far-fetched idea hatched by those in the minority party. Democrats are reportedly looking into the possibility of adding states to the union – something that hasn’t been done in 60 years – in order to gain additional seats in the U.S. Senate. Democrats and liberals are “accelerating efforts” to help Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico gain statehood, according to FiveThirtyEight.
"Democrats have reason to worry about the Senate — their party is reliant on a coalition of voters predominantly situated in and around major population centers, making it harder to compete in rural states, which get the same number of senators regardless of population. Indeed, the more densely populated a state is, the more it tends to lean Democratic."
Currently, 31 states lean more Republican than the country as a whole, according to FiveThirtyEight’s analysis. That’s partly why Republicans currently hold a 53-seat majority in the Senate, according to the analysis site. Both D.C. and Puerto Rico are seen as reliably Democratic. Making those two entities states would add four additional “blue” seats to the Senate, boosting Democrats’ chances of retaking the majority. But given that Republicans control the Senate majority and the White House, Democrats’ plan is likely years away. Essentially no one is predicting Democrats will retake the majority in the Senate in 2020.

The 2016 Congressional Pig Book

"Every year, Citizens Against Government Waste combs through the minutiae of appropriations bills to find examples of what every taxpayer objects to: government waste. Every year, CAGW exposes that waste in its annual 'Congressional Pig Book.'
"The 2016 Congressional Pig Book shows 123 instances of earmarked, pork barrel spending in the federal FY 2016 budget. Combined, they cost taxpayers $5.1 billion. That's up from $4.2 billion last year. 'While the increase in cost over one year is disconcerting, the two-year rise of 88.9 percent over the $2.7 billion in FY 2014 is downright disturbing,' the group says.
"That $5.1 billion is less than one percent of the federal budget. Cutting waste alone won't put the budget on sustainable footing, but it certainly wouldn't hurt. That $5.1 billion is better off in taxpayers' hands. 'Earmarks create a few winners (appropriators, special interests and lobbyists) and a great many losers (taxpayers).'"— Jason Russell, Washington Examiner

Behind the Scenes the Finger Pointing is Already Started

Left-wing Loonies like Sen. Elizabeth Warren are taking heat from centrist democrats 

Little Harry Reid railing against the Koch Brothers, phony OBamaCare numbers, media drum beating and fake job numbers aren't going to overcome the public perceptions of a government gone awry; a bad economy, Obama fatigue, and scandal and lies of left- wing loonies that dominate the democrat party and government. With a shellacing in the mid-terms looming, dems are in disarray and blaming each other for the noose they placed their own necks in:
"Bracing for a rough midterm-election outcome, Democrats aren't waiting until Election Day to start blaming one another for the party's problems. Anticipating the possibility that Republicans will flip the Senate, the finger-pointing game is already underway between the party's warring factions.
Earlier this month, Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas argued liberals had successfully purged so-called squishy moderates from the Democratic Party's ranks—even if those same lawmakers had helped the party retain conservative-leaning Senate and House seats. From the middle, the centrist Democratic think tank Third Way has become more outspoken in criticizing progressive leaders, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, for advocating an agenda that will compromise the party's ability to attract moderate voters.
The public spats between outside groups are nothing compared with the private finger-pointing over who could be responsible if Republicans ride a political wave this year. 
In Third Way cofounder Matt Bennett's telling, it wasn't a lack of populism that caused the party's problems. It was an incessant focus on class-war rhetoric in 2013 that repelled some voters.
"Democrats lost touch with the middle class," he said. "We engaged in arguments that have intellectual but not emotional resonance. " 

Frankly, it's news to me that there are any 'centrist' still in the democrat party.

The Cowardly Lion of the Senate

 "In Mr. Reid's Washington, the House works its will, the Senate does crossword puzzles. Its committees do not produce bills, its senators do not debate or amend, the body does not vote. The House, to accomplish anything, is forced to engage in backroom wrangling with the White House, the results of which are presented to the nation as a fait accompli. The Senate claims total deniability. ...

Mr. Reid's primary motive is to shield his vulnerable members from tough votes and to hide the huge divisions in his party.

"He does not want a debate on gun control, as it would force Democratic senators to choose between President Obama and their own pro-Second Amendment constituents. The majority leader would not offer a bill during the fiscal-cliff negotiations because many Democrats disagreed with their president's proposed tax hikes. He has not produced a budget because to do so would expose the party's real spending ambitions, which would create political problems back home for his members." — Kimberley Strassel, Wall Street Journal

Congress Less Popular Than Root Canals, Cockroaches And Lice…

Inside Politics

"A new poll shows that Congress is less popular than carnies, root canals and colonoscopies, but more popular than the ebola virus, meth labs and gonorrhea.
Those findings are in a Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey released Tuesday showed that 9 percent of the respondents held a favorable opinion of Congress, while 85 percent held an unfavorable view.
“We all know Congress is unpopular,” said Dean Debnam, PPP president. “But the fact that voters like it even less than cockroaches, lice and Genghis Kahn really shows how far its esteem has fallen with the American public over the last few weeks.”
On the bright side, Congress came out of the survey in higher standing than North Korea, the Kardashian family, and actress Lindsay Lohan, as well as Cuba’s Fidel Castro and former Sen. John Edwards...."

Are the Blue Dogs Road Kill?

Just when the Blue Dogs (Reagan Democrats) thought it couldn't get any worse, it did.

Two years after the 2010 midterm elections decimated their ranks, the coalition of conservative Democrats is poised to get pummeled again in November - moving the Blue Dogs dangerously close to extinction. Thanks to then-Speaker Stretch Pelosi’s pushing them into voting for Cap and Trade, the stimulus and Obamacare, Blue Dog numbers are shrinking fast. Blue Dogs voted for too many far left pieces of legislation to pass themselves off as centrists. Far too often.

Of the 24 remaining Blue Dogs, five are not seeking re-election. More than a half-dozen others are facing treacherous contests in which their re-election hopes are in jeopardy.

During Bill Clinton's time in office, Blue Dog Democrats were an integral part of his success, as well as the Democratic Party's. But since the Sores-engineered leftist takeover, they've played a significantly less important role.

It's a rough time to occupy the right wing of the Democratic Party.

Redistricting is also part of the Blue Dog problem. The once-in-a-decade line-drawing has forced some of them to compete for seats that have become even less friendly to Democrats - and those seats weren't very friendly to begin with. For a few Blue Dogs, the problems presented by redistricting are compounded by the challenges of running in conservative Southern states during a presidential election year, being thrust into deeply Republican territory after being targeted in GOP-led redistricting efforts in their home states. The ones not defeated by the GOP will surely be on a very short leash by the minority leader.

Pelosi Jumps on Weiner....Demands Probing

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced that she was calling for a House ethics committee probe into whether government resources had been mishandled.

“I am calling for an Ethics Committee investigation to determine whether any official resources were used or any other violation of House rules occurred.”


I refuse to make jokes about such serious matters as this.
No, not me.

Please Keep Your Weiner to Yourself.

This is how you know your elected officials
are incapable of running a country:
We live in an Information Age, where communications are instantaneous, and the ability to transmit and diffuse information at, almost literally at light speed, is a fact of life. We live in an age of a 24-hour news cycle, with thousands of outlets constantly searching for any bit of anything that is even of the slightest interest, hungry for even more channels of input, and ways to devour more airtime at a profit. We live in an age where everyone and his dog has a video camera, recording device, cell phone, computer, and access to thousands, if not millions, of databases where they can record, store, examine and retrieve almost every fact of your life, every utterance, every (you think) secret, every correspondence from the most inconsequential to the greatest of All-Time-Biggest-Bonehead moves.

You would think that someone who's claim to rule over us peasants was based upon the presumptions of superior intelligence and integrity would be extremely circumspect about what he/she does on the Internet. But I guess not.  Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) is an insufferable twit and the most-aptly named man in Washington.  

Enough said!

Appealing an Unappealing Idea.

This week a federal court judge ruled the ObamaCare reform bill passed by Congress last year was unconstitutional. The Obama Administration has already issued a statement saying they will go ahead with an appeal.
At first, this seems like a good idea, after all, it's been one of the few legislative victories of any importance Obama has had since becoming President.
But, like most of the Obama administrations ideas, on second thought it seems like a bad idea on many different levels.

Reason #1 - Fearless Leader has been exposed as weak on the issue. The longer this issue goes on, the weaker Obama appears on the issue. From the day he announced his intention to pass health care reform to the date of its passage and now with the legal challenges, Obama has not come across as a strong advocate for the measure. Instead, he came up with the idea and punted it to Congress to iron out the details. Because of his lack of leadership off the golf course, his crowning jewel is possibly on the verge of being ripped away from him. The other damning factor along these lines is footage from the 2008 Democrat debate where Obama came out strongly against some of the provisions he signed into law. For health care reform advocates, this has to be hard to justify.

Reason #2 -  A loss in court undercuts Obama's legacy. Health care reform is one of the few bright spots so far for Obama, if not the brightest. There were bound to be legal challenges to it because, well, the Republicans said there would be. Having heard them loud and clear, the Obama team should have been better prepared for the challenge because of the political implications of a loss at the Supreme Court level. If that happens, it strips away Obama's major policy initiative, which leaves nothing much left to hang his hat on for reelection.

Reason #3 - They can't blame this on the Republicans. Democrats love to paint the GOP as the "party of NO,"but Dems held majorities in both houses of Congress and utilized that power to pass the health care reform bill as written. Republicans had little to no influence on the bill itself. That means any failure, legal or otherwise, is on them. Forcing a court battle will only bring that fact further into the  light. Good intentions with bad law don't mean anything in the end. This is on Dems' heads.
Reason #4 - It's just bad law. The health care reform bill as passed reached too far legally with too many loopholes and exceptions. The federal judge's ruling and justification for it exposed the flaws in the existing law, which will make it tough for the Supreme Court to put up a legal defense of the health care bill, if they even decide to hear the case at all. And I bet the moron that suggested dissing the Supreme Court Justices during a state of the Union Address last year, the very people who may just may hold the fate of the entire thing in their hands, doesn't think that was a great idea now.
The Bright Side: 
Believing themselves invincible, unbeatable in the mid-term elections and feeling they owned the country after the Obama election, the Democrats once again underestimated the American people by passing ObamaCare. That "bend over and smile" and "we know what's best for you and you're gonna like it cause we say so" attitude seen nightly during the health reform debate helped to forever change many American's views of a political party, it's philosophy and it's leaders. 
Let's hope they never forget!

The 111th Congress: R.I.P.

Posted by Diogenes Sarcastica - Dec. 29th, 2010

And Good Riddance!
 The Band of Drunken Sailors With a Blank Check
Known As The 111th Congress, Are Now History!

They did their best to grab more power, to bullshit and run rough shod over the American people with their arrogance, pompous attitudes and displays of liberal superiority, all the while feigning dismay, then anger as the people spoke up with  their dislike of the leftist "we know better" mentality on display all through the first 2 years of the Obama administration. They really believed they were invincible. 

Well, that worked out real well, didn't it? 

I need not go into details here, as their antics are well documented in Pundit&Pundette's  111th Congress: Worst ever? , an excellent roundup of democrat's much ballyhooed version of "Pee on Your Leg and Tell You it's Raining." Check it out or be square.

And then there is Nancy...... 
During the Nancy Pelosi’s  tenure as speaker, which commenced on Jan. 4, 2007 with the 110th congress and a promise of fiscal responsiblity, the federal government has run up $5.177 trillion in new debt.  Can you get your head around that number?  That is roughly equal to the total debt the federal government accumulated in the first 220 years of the nation's history, with  $3.22 trillion of that just during the tenure of the 111th Congress.   And the 111th not only has set the record as the most debt-accumulating Congress in U.S. history, it finished with 13% approval rating with the American electorate.  

Back away from the gavel, Nancy. Slowly.

Just When You Thought They Couldn't Get Any Crazier....Along Comes Frederica

Congressional Black Caucus 
Adds a Brand New Lunatic
In all the excitement of the Republicans recent election of a majority in the House, this news item has been overlooked. Just when you thought the Congressional Black Caucus had its full quota of lunatics, along comes flamboyant newly-elected Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson.

Wilson’s first goal will be to overturn a rule that blocks her from wearing a hat on the House floor. The freshman Democrat is going to press incoming House Speaker John Boehner to overturn the rule, which dates back to the 1800s, or at least to make an exception for her.   It’s unclear whether Boehner, who  will likely have plenty of priorities ahead of a rule-change request from a member of the opposition party, could do anything shy of a full floor vote to overturn the House’s hat ban. Wilson doesn’t own just a hat or two. By her count, the former Florida state House member owns at least 300 different hats, including custom-made sequined cowboy hats in virtually every color of the rainbow. Her hat collection is so massive, it takes up an entire room of her house, according to the Miami New Times. “I’ve been wearing them almost 30 years. It’s like a fetish.”
Its nice to see that Wilson has her priorities straight and that her first order of business will be taking care of her fetish. Wilson will undoubtedly be warmly welcomed to the CBC by fellow lunatics   Sanford Bishop, Keith Ellison, Chaka Fattah, Alcee Hastings, Eddie Bernice Johnson, Hank Johnson, Barbara Lee, Sheila Jackson Lee and Maxine Waters.

She ought to fit right in.

A letter from Nancy Pelosi

Posted by Publius Minimus
Dec 4, 2010
from Beautiful Letters
 From the Desk of the Honorable 
  Speaker of the House of Representatives:

Dear American People, 

Well, you went and did it, didn't you, you bunch of arrogant rednecks! Here I've been busting my cute little can for the last four years to undo all the damage that deranged cowboy Bush and his Republican cronies did to this country, and what do you do but take away my Speaker's gavel. As if you have any right! I worked hard all my life to get where I am, and you took it away just because you were mad at that amateur hour clown Obama! 

Well, you're about to find out that two can play at that game. You may have stolen the Speaker's chair from me for now, but I'll get it back in two years. Oh, and get a load of this. I'm STILL speaker RIGHT NOW. So who's going to pay? You are, that's who, you ungrateful, inbred bunch of Palin worshiping troglodytes! You think you can rob me of what's mine and not pay a price? Have I got news for you, America. Right now you've stolen what's mine by right. You took my gavel.

 Well you know what they say about payback, and here she comes on high heels and carrying an ice pick. You think it's funny that you took my job? Well I've got your middle-of-a-recession tax hike right here, you yokels. You think unemployment is bad now? By this time next year you'll be wishing it was just fifteen percent. I've got a lame duck session to work with, and I'm going to use it to put the screws to you like you didn't even know was possible. Your taxes are going up and your jobs are going away, and you've got nobody but yourselves to blame for it. You took my job and now I'm taking yours. 

You people thought you were so clever and funny on election night, didn't you? Well who's laughing now? I can't wait to see the looks on your faces when you see those new withholding amounts on your pay stubs. I can't wait to see you crying in the street when all your precious small businesses shut down. Mom and Pop stores? They're popped. And it's your fault for taking what was mine. 

So look at this America. I don't get mad, I get even. And right now this "lame duck" session is going to cripple this whole country on its way out. So laugh it up, you hick racists. Because she who laughs last laughs best. And while you're all in the unemployment line, I'll still be sitting pretty here in Congress, just waiting for 2012 to take back what's rightfully mine. And by then you'll be all too happy to give it to me, won't you? See you then, losers.


Once and future Speaker of the House San Fran Nan
