Sen Ben Nelson (D, NE): ‘I know about holograms.’
This is one of those ‘funny when it happens to other countries’ stories. Some background: Senator Tom Harkin (D) of Iowa, having happily participated in saddling the American people with trillions of dollars of generational debt at the behest of his liberal party leadership, has decided to make things right for folks by introducing a bill to cap ATM fees. Gee. Thanks, Tommie. Anyway, the | Read More »
Its A Jungle Out There – Americans
2010 promises to be a repeat of 2009 – Mr. Obama hasn’t changed and his concentration isn’t on our Nation or Americans. What amazes me is the attitude of “Change,” his change – loss of jobs, homes and Americans’ faith in his ability to protect our Nation and fellow citizens absolutely are of no concern to Obama.

Anti-Federalist No. 2 – The Nebraska “Compromise”
You may know it as the current Health Care Reform Bill that just passed in the Senate, but others know it by another name: The Nebraska Compromise. The reason it’s being called The Nebraska Compromise is because Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska , in an effort to bring home some bacon for his State, sold his vote on the Health Care Reform Bill in exchange | Read More »
Expanded Cornhusker Kickback Would Cost Billions
By now, everyone is aware of the lucrative payoff that Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson (D) received to vote for the Senate health care bill. Despite mounting evidence to the contrary, Nelson insisted that every state would get the kickback and he would make sure that happened (as Brian Faughnan reported a few weeks ago). Needless to say, Nelson’s kickback, when expanded to all 50 states | Read More »
NOW to Democrats on Health Care: “Women will be better off with no bill whatsoever.”
On this dolorous anniversary of Roe v. Wade, there can be no stranger bedfellows for pro-life conservative Republicans than the hard-line pro-abortion group the National Organization for Women (NOW). But as the last Democratic hopes fade for passing Obamacare on a party-line vote by ramming the Senate bill through the House unchanged – the only way, short of rewriting Senate procedures, to avoid another Senate | Read More »
Heineman Open to Nelson Challenge
It’s one of the cardinal rules of politics that a candidate currently seeking a given office will never confirm that he’s already decided to run for another, down the line. The standard response to such questions is ‘right now I’m focused on this race.’ And so it is with Governor Dave Heineman, who gives all the right answers about already having ‘the best job in | Read More »
Drug Lobby, Big States Turning Against Health Care?
So far, a dominant theme of the health care rationing debate seems to consist in Democrats achieving major ‘breakthroughs,’ only to find those breakthroughs fall through. There were the encouraging negotiations with Snowe, the multiple approaches to the ‘public option,’ and the compromises on abortion funding. But each time Democrats have touted a turning point, it s turned out to be less than meets the | Read More »
Ben Nelson Sure Isn’t Popular in Nebraska Anymore
How badly did Ben Nelson miscalculate? Clearly, the once-popular former Governor tried to have his cake and eat it too. He didn’t want to take the ‘blame’ for killing the president’s health care rationing bill, but he also did not want to seem like a liberal extremist. So he calculated that he could be a hero to both sides if he led the way on | Read More »
Great new site from Let Freedom Ring: MasterLard. They’ve got an ad to go with it:
SEIU $680,000 To Defeat Brown – Money Taken From Member Dues.
Bureau of Labor Statistics came out with this startling figure. For every job in the United States today there are over SIX POINT FIVE APPLICANTS. Another big Obama confidence builder. By the way Obama, IN SECRET as usual, signed an executive order establishing a so-called Council of Governors. Another purely STALINIST move by MAOBAMA. This Council of Governors is to ‘provide input’ on “homeland defense | Read More »

Sen. Nelson (D-NE) was for the Healthcare Bill before he was against it…
…And he was against it before that. Some of you may remember I wrote a post a while back on my blog thanking Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska for stalling the Obamacare bill for no other reason than I wished to see the bill fail. Evidently Nelson must have seen my post or something, because soon after had I written the post, it seems, he | Read More »
Nelson: Everyone Will get the Cornhusker Kickback
Senator Ben Nelson (D-DeadMeat) continues to try to distance himself from his Obamacare bribe and his vote for the bill: “At the end of the day, whatever Nebraska gets will be available to all states,” Nelson said during a conference call with reporters. In exchange for his crucial support of the reform bill, Nelson was promised federal funding to cover Nebraska’s entire cost of a | Read More »
Blanche Lincoln: Nelson’s Deal Should be Dropped
Ben Nelson said he never asked for Harry Reid to give Nebraska more funding for Medicaid, and now Blanche Lambert Lincoln says that bribe should be deleted from any final health care bill: U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln said a political deal that benefits Nebraska and may have clinched a lawmaker’s support for health care legislation should be removed from the bill. The Democratic senator from | Read More »
More Democrat Slime Politics – In The Dark, As Usual.
In the long and honorable, if sometimes fractious, political history of this country, never have we seen such behavior as is being displayed by the so-called leadership of the once Democrat, now DeMarxist, and their man/boy zero sum President Barack Hussein Obama. Under the cover of dubious parliamentary procedure and what else? IN SECRET, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are planning to try to meld | Read More »
Conservative Marching Order 2010.
This is it. 2010 and the MID-TERM ELECTIONS are right around the corner in political terms. We need to pay VERY close attention to everything that transpires this year and we cannot for one split second take anything for granted. There are some do’s and don’ts out there that we should keep foremost in our minds as the swelling tsunami of the American Conservative movement | Read More »
