Pointing a finger at the enablers of Jose Ernesto Medellin’s execution.
Never mind that he was convicted of raping and murdering two teenagers (14 and 16); the International Court of Justice and the United Nations both wanted Medellin not to be executed, and what is the State of Texas to argue with them? Well… it’s a State in the USA, which means that it actually has rights that the federal government is not in fact empowered | Read More »

Democrats: “There is no crisis on our side of the aisle”
Via Politico, we have an excellent montage of quotes and comments to help us better understand why there will be no energy legislation before the next Congress is sworn in…and a clearer picture of the depths of hell Democrats are willing to drag us through in order to expand their power in Washington: But what looks like intraparty tension on the surface is part of | Read More »

Well, Speaker Pelosi proved yesterday that telepathy DOES NOT WORK.
As it stands, as far as I can tell they couldn’t even manage to pop one of her blood vessels. For that matter, if telepathy worked George Stephanopoulos probably would have succumbed to his barely-hidden urge to leap across the table and strangle the Speaker with his own tie before she completely wrecked the Democrats’ chances to win 30 seats this election*.Get the transcript (via | Read More »

Another Pelosi/Ried Promise Broken
When opening the new Senate session on January 4, 2007, the new Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid leader boldly proclaimed that “We are going to work longer hours, we are going to work full weeks, we are going to have votes on Mondays and Fridays.” In the people’s house, Nancy Pelosi made similar promises about the way business would be done under Democratic leadership.He went | Read More »

Nancy Pelosi On “We, The Plebeians” – Let Them Eat Cake
Like her soul sister from a bygone era, Nancy Pelosi (the Arch Duchess of California turned Queen of Congress) has no regard for the sufferings of her people. Either she has no capacity for comprehending the depth and breadth of the effects this energy crisis is having on Americans, or she just flatly doesn’t care. More interested insaving the planet than in saving the lives | Read More »
The NRCC takes the hint.
But better late than never.And like Ed, I like calling this “the not-quite-in-motion picture”Congress is going to be a bear this go-round. No way to get around it. But, heck, the NRCC at least looks like that it’s going to go down swinging. So… stick and carrot, you know what I mean?
Breaking: House Democrats Vote To Go On Strike
Of course [pause...sigh] the irony here lies in the fact that they did scant little work BEFORE they voted to adjourn. Having said that, choosing to walk out of the House of Representatives NOW, with America’s critical needs remaining unattended-to, can be considered nothing less than a disrespectful second-digit salute to we, the Taxpayers. Worse, they’ll come back to work when THEY feel like it | Read More »
Democrats’ Energy Ideas Date to 19th Century
Bless his heart, Rep. Jerry Nadler is trying to understand the woes of Americans facing the high cost of gasoline.Venturing outside the comfortable confines of his Manhattan and Brooklyn district, the liberal Democrat was spotted Monday in the Upstate New York city of Utica talking about transportation and energy policy.Nadler’s solution:”We should take a hard look at reviving the canals,” Nadler said. Rail transport is | Read More »
Hi, Nancy! Do you *really* want to play chicken over energy policy?
Remember that the more annoyingly obstructionist and anti-regulatory the GOP is in the House, the more we the GOP base love them for it (something that the Senate GOP’s already noted). Which makes this short video about your disinclination to settle drilling before the August break (courtesy of the NRCC, and said group seems to have gotten the hint on this topic, at least), kind | Read More »
House Speaker Pelosi Claims Al Gore Invented Internet Technology?
I’m sure by now we are all aware of the Netroots Nation conference that happened in Austin, Texas last weekend. Well, did you know that without Al Gore it wouldn’t have happened? That’s right, since Al Gore invented the Internet… I know, I know, that is the old Al Gore joke where he famously claimed that he invented the World Wide Web. Everyone knows that | Read More »
Democrats don’t believe in ethics reform
How did this not get more attention? With reporting deadlines looming, congressional officers have issued revised guidelines that ease some of the lobbying disclosure requirements enacted last year. The revised guidance, issued by the Clerk of the House and Secretary of the Senate, relaxed the rules for disclosure of lobbyist contributions to parties at this summer’s Democratic and Republican national conventions, among other changes.So, just | Read More »
