The Old Days of Regular Order
Rep. John Dingell (D-MI) has served 53 years in the House and next week will become the longest serving member of that body. In a CongressDaily AM article (subscription required) earlier in the week Dingell lamented, “Where we used to have long and thorough debates with open rules, we don’t anymore.” CongressDaily goes on to note that this and the lack of comradery in the | Read More »
SCHIP: A Good Program Marred by Bad Policy
Today, the House of Representatives passed the Senate-amended reauthorization of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, or SCHIP, by a vote of 290-135. This is a federally funded program that is supposed to provide health care to low-income children whose families cannot afford private health insurance. While I believe that this is a good program and I support initiatives to bring health care to children | Read More »
Real American Political Genius– Miss I have no clue about what’s really going on Speaker of the House

“Burn her at the stake”….it appears the villagers are restless!
Well we all knew that Queen Botox (Pelosi) changed the rules in the House so there would be no input from Republicans BUT she is so whacked out of her mind from all of that poison in her face that she is excluding her own party and they are NOT HAPPY The beauty of this insurrection from the Democrats would be they are not taking | Read More »
Pelosi spokesmouth agrees stimulus bill is fiscally irresponsible
From the diaries by Erick. David Freddoso at the Corner points out this gem in an article about the 11 House Dems who voted against the stimulus bill last week: “The speaker has said many times that the members are representative of their district,” said Brendan Daly, a spokesman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “Many of the districts are more conservative, and they campaigned on | Read More »
Speaker Pelosi, “I don’t think anybody can tell you when… human life begins.”
As we progress into the Super Bowl weekend I see our friends over at HuffPo having a conniption fit over the PETA ad being denied by NBC. I want to point out this ad too was denied. Because the last thing the Pro-Abortion crowd would ever want is to associate that a growing baby is anything more then lifeless biomass.
It’s not possible to borrow this much!
The Obama-Pelosi-Reid plan is to borrow $888-billion and spend it, as though that would fix anything. But who would loan us the money? Answer: nobody. As California has learned, there’s a limit to how much a spendthrift government can borrow. We’re already in hock to the Chinese for $681-billion, after our government borrowed an extra $227-billion from them in the last year. The official U.S. Treasury | Read More »

Pelosi and Obama’s Dem Party see humans as the enemy
If only there were less humans, Utopia would appear. Originally published by Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report First, it was purges of the masses who wouldn’t cooperate by Lenin, Stalin and Mao. The Berlin Wall fell and ended that illusion. Then it was the 60s and 70s population explosion threat. Population increased exponentially as Reagan-Thatcher conservative prosperity and Clinton globalism reduced poverty | Read More »
Obama Bipartisan Tone Nothing More Than A Ruse
Throughout his campaign then candidate Barack Obama told his worshipping minions that if elected he would change the tone in Washington and there would be full bipartisan participation along with a, “let’s get along,” attitude. This theme continued through his transition as Obama spoke of cooperation, no more accusations and ,”mean spirited,” talk from his administration or anyone else in Washington. Then the moment of | Read More »
The Year the Earth Stood Still for the GOP
By Julian Krasta On New Year’s Eve of 2007, as the clock struck midnight, the chant amongst friends at a small gathering was: “2008 – and everything’s going to be great!” I sipped my bubbly but chose not to join the chorus, keeping this adage in mind: “Expect nothing and you won’t be disappointed.” 2008 zapped by and, guess what: nothing is | Read More »
Obama’s ear marked porcine stimulation of government bill
Originally published by Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report An astute political observer in Alabama, while issuing disclaimers that he was not an economist as he conveyed astute observations to his economically and legally credentialed friend, would have made William Shakespeare proud with soul of wit brevity in reducing the “stimulus” issue down to its essentials. “Mike,” he said, “aren’t there only two | Read More »
Pelosinomics: Bankruptcy Is Not An Option
On Wednesday, the Big Three American automakers converged upon Congress- with their Christmas List of unjust demands. These would be the terms by which they would continue to produce sub-par merchandise, employ large numbers of Democratic Party loyalists and manage a pension and health care system that no one in their right minds would want to take over as part of a bankruptcy receivership. The | Read More »
Bend Over America, Here it Comes
Ok. Let’s face it. Special interests are going to RULE in Congress with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Two weeks ago the automakers, facing public opposition to a $25 billion bail out went home on their private jets with their tails between their legs to come up with a plan to save America’s unionized auto production companies. Congress, not willing to take the heat, needed | Read More »
