Color me shocked and amazed!

May 4, 2017: The House of Representatives today unanimously passed U.S. Representative Martha McSally’s legislation H.R. 2192, a standalone two-page bill to prevent Members of Congress from exempting themselves from the American Health Care Act.

McSally Urges House to Pass Bill Striking AHCA Exemptions for Members of Congress

“Any law we pass that applies to our constituents must apply equally to Members of Congress as well. Anything short of that is hypocrisy. Congress must abide by the laws it passes and should be treated no differently than other hardworking Americans,” said Rep. McSally. “My measure eliminates double standards by preventing Members of Congress from exempting themselves from American Health Care Act.”

The Left Scores Again

Two days ago: Nunes: ‘I will NOT recuse myself.’
Rep. Devin Nunes Steps Aside From Russia Probe
It’s what the left does, yell and scream that impropriety when they are the ones being improper.

After a number of ethics complaints, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., announced today that he will step aside from leading the House Intelligence Committee’s probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

“Several left-wing activist groups have filed accusations against me with the Office of Congressional Ethics. The charges are entirely false and politically motivated, and are being leveled just as the American people are beginning to learn the truth about the improper unmasking of the identities of U.S. citizens and other abuses of power,” Nunes said in a statement released this morning.

“Despite the baselessness of the charges, I believe it is in the best interests of the House Intelligence Committee and the Congress for me to have Representative Mike Conaway, with assistance from Representatives Trey Gowdy and Tom Rooney, temporarily take charge of the Committee’s Russia investigation while the House Ethics Committee looks into this matter,” he said.

FROM THE COMMENT SECTION:
Devin
We hate Devin
And we’ll shout him down so that he cannot speak
But please don’t think it’s in any way unique
When we stampede media from leak to leak
Devin
We hate Devin
Must remove him ere he finds that which he seeks
So we’ll drown him out with all our outraged shrieks
And stampede the media from leak to leak
(JUST A LITTLE CLASS ON A THURSDAY)

Rep. Schiff: The accusation against Susan Rice by the Breitbart crowd and by people in this building that I think are tossing around slanderous accusations without evidence.

FROM BREITBART: MEDIA CLAIMS SCALP
House intelligence committee chair steps aside
The chairman of the House intelligence committee says he will temporarily step aside from the panel’s probe into Russian meddling in the election.

TREY GOWDY IS STEPPING IN TO DO THE JOB NUNES IS TOO COWARDLY TO DO.

WE WIN AGAIN!!!!

I’m going back to bed now

Jan 23, 2017:  President Trump signed an executive order restoring the Mexico City Policy, which bans the U.S. from funding any group like International Planned Parenthood that performs abortions outside the country.  He also took steps to defund UNFPA, a United Nations agency which promotes abortions worldwide.

Jan 24, 2017:  The House passed a bill to completely and permanently ban taxpayer funding of abortions.  Currently, this has to be done year by year.  President Trump said that, if the bill passes in the Senate, he will sign it into law.

Jan 24, 2017:  The Senate voted 96-4 to confirm Trump’s appointment of Governor Nikki Haley as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.  She is strongly pro-life and swore she will use her new post to oppose abortion on an international level.

Jan 25, 2017: Sean Spicer announced that Kellyanne Conway and other White House staff will attend the D.C. March for Life tomorrow.  In previous years, Obama marked the day of the march by issuing a presidential statement praising Roe vs. Wade.

Jan 25, 2017: Vice President Mike Pence says pro-lifers should drop what they are doing and show up to the national mall on Friday.  Dearest plans to do just that.

Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss

Apparently the democrats never heard what it’s called when you do the same thing over and over again, expecting a different outcome. Nancy Pelosi, Nancy-Pants, San Fran Nan, was re-elected as minority leader in the House. Let me repeat that…MINORITY leader. Look forward to more high comedy as they flop around like a carp out of water.

Great! It’s Pelosi! Yay! “We Know How to Win Elections”, She Said
THERE ARE FAR MORE REVOLTING PHOTOSHOPS, BUT THIS IS A FAMILY-FRIENDLY WEBSITE (sorta)
Actually, this is a good thing, Nancy Pelosi will continue on as House minority leader. The vote was today and she won. The 76-year old in charge will mean more of the same and the downward spiral of the Democrat Party will continue. Tim Ryan tried to unseat her but she’s a major fundraiser for Democrat politicians and they owe here so he lost.
Ryan made a good point when he called the Democrat party the coastal party because that’s what it is. They weight heavily in favor of urban areas and pay no attention to middle America, in fact, their policies hurt the average working man and rural areas. He also talked about the need for a strong economic message.

Wait a minute … GOP rejoices over Pelosi win
Before the election, the National Republican Congressional Committee trolled Pelosi. “No single person deserves more credit for House Republicans’ historic majority than Nancy Pelosi,” NRCC Communications Director Katie Martin said in a statement. “Under Nancy Pelosi’s leadership, House Democrats have become completely irrelevant.”
I think there was some voter fraud in Pelosi’s leadership election. Someone let Reince Priebus vote 134 times.
Dems (Nov 9): Geez, I guess we are really out of touch with middle America
Dems (Nov 30): That thing we are doing, yeah, let’s double down

Hope for the Future?… Average Age of House Democratic Leadership is 76
House Democrats overwhelmingly decided to go with the past by keeping Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
The vote was 134 to 63 for second place finisher Rep. Tim Ryan.
Pelosi is 76.
The top three Democrats in leadership are 76 (Pelosi), 77 (Steny Hoyer) and 76 (Jim Clyburn). The average age of the Democratic party leadership is 76.
The top three Republican leaders, in contrast, are 46 (Paul Ryan), 51 (Kevin McCarthy) and 51 (Steve Scalise).

PERHAPS SOME OF YOU REMEMBER JACK CAFFERTY, LATE OF CNN. JUST BEFORE HIS CONTRACT WAS CANCELLED IN 2010, HE DID THIS PIECE ON PELOSI AND HER UNMITIGATED ARROGANCE. IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IT YET, I URGE YOU TO WATCH. IT’S ONLY TWO MINUTES, BUT CAFFERTY ABSOLUTELY BLISTERS THE SAN FRANCISCO TREAT.

Hilly’s Homey, Jimmy Comey

Clinton shill and FBI director James Comey was on the Hill today, trying to explain that Hillary didn’t do what she did, it was the Justice Department and not he that gave immunity to all her co-conspirators to make sure the sham investigation went nowhere. The only question is, is he on the regular Clinton payroll or do they pay him by the job, since this isn’t the first time he’s showed them undue favoritism?

Comey Defends Clinton Case: Do Not Call Us Weasels
Testifying in front of the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday, FBI Director James Comey defended the Bureau’s criminal investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to transmit and host classified information.
“You can call us wrong, but don’t call us weasels,” Comey said. “We are not weasels, we are honest people and we did this in that way.”
FBI Director Comey: I Never Said Hillary Clinton Was Truthful About Her Emails

SHE HAS STATED OVER AND OVER THAT HE FOUND SHE DID NOTHING WRONG… IT’S HER ONLY DEFENSE
FBI Director: We Don’t Have “Sufficient” Evidence That Clinton Broke The Law…

FBI Director: An FBI Agent Would ‘Be In Big Trouble’ If They Did What Hillary Did
FBI director James Comey on Wednesday said that an FBI agent who operated a private email system similar to Hillary Clinton’s would be “in big trouble” at the bureau.
Comey was responding in a House Judiciary Committee hearing to an allegation from Ohio Rep. Steve Chabot that the decision to not charge Clinton with mishandling classified information showed a “double standard.”

Who is James Comey: 7 things to know about the FBI director
He opposed Bush White House officials in a dramatic standoff
Comey came into national prominence in 2007 when, during testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee, he told the story of a tense standoff over a federal domestic surveillance program with top officials from the administration of President George W. Bush.
Top White House lawyer Alberto Gonzales (who would later become U.S. attorney general) and Bush Chief of Staff Andrew Card had raced to Ashcroft’s side in an effort to have him sign off on an extension to the wiretapping program, which Justice Department attorneys had deemed illegal. The weakened Ashcroft managed to make clear his refusal and Gonzales and Card left the room — with Comey, then Ashcroft’s top deputy, watching on — without a word.

When lifestyle guru Martha Stewart was indicted in 2003 on a series of charges connected to a dodgy 2000 stock deal, it was Comey who brought the charges.
Nor his second. The email server probe marked the third time Comey has investigated Bill or Hillary Clinton.
There he dug into allegations that the Clintons took part in a fraud connected to a Arkansas real estate venture gone bust. No charges were ever brought against either Clinton, but the scandal would eventually lead to independent counsel Kenneth Starr’s probe that would result in the Lewinsky scandal.
In 2002, Comey, then a federal prosecutor, took over an investigation into President Bill Clinton’s 2001 pardon of financier Marc Rich, who had been indicted on a laundry list of charges before fleeing the country. The decision set off a political firestorm focused on accusations that Rich’s ex-wife Denise made donations to the Democratic Party, the Clinton Library and Hillary Clinton’s 2000 Senate campaign as part of a plan to get Rich off the hook. Comey ultimately decided not to pursue the case.
The kicker: Comey himself had overseen Rich’s prosecution between 1987 and 1993.
He is quite tall
The 6-foot-8-inch Comey, a basketball player like President Barack Obama, is likely the tallest FBI director in the bureau’s history
 James Comey’s Clinton Immunity
More questions about the FBI’s special handling of the email case.
Why the courtesy? “If the FBI wanted any other Americans’ laptops, they would just go get them—they wouldn’t get an immunity deal,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan told Politico. He’s right. The FBI merely had to seek a subpoena or search warrant. By offering immunity, the FBI exempted the laptops and their emails as potential evidence in a criminal case.

James Comey discusses Cheryl Mills’ immunity

THE FBI IS CORRUPT. THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT SHILLS FOR DEMOCRATS. SO WHAT?
THEY’LL ALL GET AWAY WITH IT AND GET RICHER INTO THE BARGAIN. THAT’S THE WAY IT IS ANYMORE.

HOUSE REPUBLICANS FOLD! Will Not Hold Impeachment Vote on Crooked IRS Chief

Until late Wednesday night, House members expected to make a decision on whether or not to impeach IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. They even could have cast a ballot to postpone or kill the impeachment effort. Most GOPers who aren’t part of the conservative House Freedom Caucus cringed at their voting options.
As it turns out, lawmakers won’t have to vote on Koskinen just yet. Thanks to some behind-the-scenes wrangling from Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., the Freedom Caucus carved a deal with House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., to hold an impeachment hearing with Koskinen present next Wednesday.

Missouri Legislature Overrides Veto to Legalize Permitless Gun Carry

APPARENTLY SOME STATE-LEVEL POLITICIANS HAVE MORE PRINCIPLES THAN THOSE SELLOUTS AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL, WHERE THE MONEY IS BIGGER
Missouri legislators bypassed the governor’s wishes and instituted the new gun-friendly law by a vote of 112-41 in the House of Representatives and 24-6 in the Senate. Under the law, anyone over 21 who can legally own a firearm may now legally carry a firearm. The move continues a nationwide trend towards what activists call “constitutional carry.”
From the nation’s founding through 2002 Vermont was the only state that didn’t require a state-issued permit to carry a firearm. Alaska became the second state to adopt the policy in 2003. Over the last six years another nine states have followed suit, making it the hottest trend in state-level gun policy

The fundraiser is being held at the Rainbow Room, a fine-dining restaurant on the 65th floor of a Manhattan skyscraper. Plans called for performances by Wynton Marsalis, Jon Bon Jovi, and Barbra Streisand, according to people briefed on the planning. They said that major donors are being asked to give $250,000 to be listed as a chair for the party, $100,000 to be listed a co-chair, and $50,000 to be listed as a vice-chair.

Missouri Dem State Senator Refuses To Stand For Pledge Of Allegiance “In Solidarity” With Colin Kaepernick

“I decided to not stand for the pledge of allegiance today to stand in solidarity with the cause of injustice that Colin Kaepernick has shined a bright light upon. I am not anti-America, and in fact, it is because I love this country that I take this stand,” she said in a statement.

IT’S THE DEMOCRATS’ PATH TO VICTORY
Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson says a group called the “Indiana Voter Registration Project” has turned in forged voter registration applications. Lawson’s office says the group was found to be altering the information of voters who were already registered.
According to Lawson, the group changed the voters address to an address not associated with the voter without the voter’s knowledge.

The landlord is replacing the kitchen floor today. The only exit from our apartment is through the kitchen, so I have a cooler with some food and drink. I can’t leave the mancave, so here we are. It seems that a few more people are commenting if all the links aren’t buried in the reply section. I try to keep posts topical, but it doesn’t always work out that way.
We have been nominated for another Paul Revere award this year, but the competition is as stiff as my joints after sitting here for hours. Time will tell.

Michelle Obama, daughters to visit Liberia, Morocco, Spain

SHE MAY FEEL ANGUISHED LIVING IN “A HOUSE BUILT BY SLAVES,” BUT GETTING FREE TRIPS AROUND THE WORLD HELPS TO EASE THE PAIN

Michelle Obama will travel to Liberia, Morocco and Spain with her teen daughters Malia and Sasha at the end of June to promote education for girls, one of her signature issues as the first lady of the United States, the White House said on Wednesday.
SHE’S GOING TO GIVE A COUPLE PHONY SPEECHES SO WE GET TO PAY FOR EVERYTHING

House Oversight Committee votes to censure IRS Commissioner

EVERY TIME I SEE THIS TURD I GET THE URGE TO PUNCH HIM IN THE THROAT. HE’S JUST SO REPULSIVE.
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted to approve a resolution designed to censure IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. The Committee announced the vote and the reasons behind it in a press release:

The Resolution expresses the sense of the House that Mr. Koskinen engaged in a pattern of conduct inconsistent with the trust and confidence placed in him as an Officer of the United States, urges Mr. Koskinen’s resignation or removal, and requires forfeiture of his government pension and any other federal benefits for which he is eligible.

Chairman Jason Chaffetz tells The Hill that this is the first step toward impeachment, but this sense of the House vote does not require any follow up from the Senate:

THE SENATE WILL DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. YOU KNOW IT, I KNOW IT.
REMEMBER WHEN PRESIDENT BEN T. PENIS GOT CAUGHT WITH HIS PANTS DOWN? HIS BUDDIES IN THE SENATE WERE SCREAMING FOR A “CENSURE” WHERE HE WOULD STAND IN THE WELL OF THE SENATE AND BE SCOLDED FOR BEING A SEXUAL PREDATOR. TROUBLE IS,WHEN YOU HAVE NO CONSCIENCE, NO MORALS, AND NO SENSE OF SHAME, NOTHING ANYBODY SAYS WILL BOTHER YOU. IT’S LIKE WHEN A SPOILED BRAT BREAKS AN EXPENSIVE PIECE OF ART AND GETS SCOLDED, BUT NO REAL PAIN.

The measure passed on a party line vote. The committee’s press release directed readers to this video providing a timeline of the IRS targeting scandal:

The Nations Clinton Bashes for Terrorism Funding Gave UP TO $40 MILLION to Clinton Foundation

Earlier this week, Hillary Clinton harshly criticized three countries for directly funding terrorists who are actively seeking to attack the United States and Western Europe. The governments of this trio of nations have contributed between $16 million and $40 million to the Clinton Foundation.
ALL SHE’S INTERESTED IN IS THE MONEY. THE REST IS JUST DETAILS.

Saudi Prince LASHES OUT at Trump, Tells Him to Withdraw from Race – Donates Millions to Hillary
In December Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal slammed Donald Trump for proposing a ban on Muslim immigrants in the US until the government could alleviate security concerns.

Prince Alwaleed called Donald Trump a “disgrace” for his popular plan.
Trump was right.
Saudi Arabia has banned Syrian immigrants from its country due to security concerns.

** It should be noted that Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is a top Clinton Foundation donor.
Saudi Arabia has been a particularly generous benefactor to the Clinton Foundation, giving at least $10 million since 2001, according to foundation disclosures. At least $1 million more was donated by Friends of Saudi Arabia, co-founded by a Saudi Prince.

WITH BEN T. PENIS, IT ISN’T ALL ABOUT THE MONEY…. WITH HER, IT IS.

Bill Clinton’s Ex-Lover Describes Meeting Hillary: ‘Lumpy, Thick Calves, Hairy Toes’

“Nothing about them has changed in the past forty-plus years, except that they have deluded more and more people.”

A recently released memoir from one of Bill Clinton’s ex-lovers from Arkansas eviscerates Hillary Clinton and reveals how the political power couple haven’t changed their “lying, cheating, manipulative, ruthlessly aggressive” ways in over 40 years.

Dolly Kyle has written Hillary, the Other Woman which is described by Daily Mail as a “bombshell book” that speaks to her love affair with Bill that started after high school and ended when the Clintons moved into the White House. Kyle said she was very “codependent” on “Billy [the] sex addict,” whom she said often lamented the fact that Wilt Chamberlain had slept with ten times (20,000) as many women as he.

Hillary’s role of providing financial security for Billy was part of her motivation for the series of financial crimes (yes, crimes) that she committed over the decades.
Hillary is not a leader. She is a coattail-clutcher who has a litany of jobs with no accomplishments.

In her speeches and on her website, without giving any evidence of what she has done, Hillary states that she has been fighting for women for over forty years. She is confused again. She has been attacking women for over forty years.

The Dark Night of the Nation

Batman and St John of the Cross

“New House Speaker Paul Ryan quickly passed a budget bill (with more Democrats than Republicans voting for it) which essentially gave Barack Obama and his cronies everything they could possibly want with no fight whatsoever.

“Cash for Planned Parenthood butchery? Full funding for the resettling of immigrants and refugees in the nation’s vulnerable heartland? Taxpayer dollars to combat alleged climate change? All this and much, much, MUCH more was rubber stamped “to keep the government open,” making a complete mockery of the hard fought elections which finally gave the House and Senate to Republicans under the mistaken impression that it might make a difference.

“And we conservatives can scream, complain, and debate amongst ourselves all we want, but to what end? Everything we stand against is already funded through next year.” – Stilton Jarlsburg at Hope n’ Change
