Congress

The National Statuary Hall Collection. We find it amusing that inside the U.S. Capitol resides a collection of statues liberals won’t like. After all their vituperation about Confederate Battle Flags and the removal of some Civil War monuments you might find who’s there amazing. Not one peep from anybody about it either.

Wade Hampton – South Carolina – Confederate soldier and supporter

Robert E. Lee – Virginia – Commander of the Confederate Army

Alexander Hamilton Stephens – Georgia – Vice President of the Confederacy

Joseph Wheeler – Alabama – Confederate cavalry leader.

Edward Douglass White – Louisiana – Confederate soldier.

Four Out of Five of Obama’s Supreme Court Finalists Are Obama Donors. Not massive donations but there’s one real big problem they all share – Obama wants them. Remember Senators Mitch McConnell and Chuck Grassley – NO! NO! NO! a thousand times NO! NO hearings and NO votes.

Senator Upset Obama Raided Treasury Of $500 Million For UN Slush Fund. Will the Senate do anything about this? No.

McConnell will not meet with Obama’s nominee. Sorry Mitch, but we have no faith you’ll follow through on this. If you don’t there probably won’t be much of the GOP left to worry about.

Sen. Mark Kirk: Obama’s Supreme Court pick deserves fair hearing in Senate. Here’s a new target. When he loses reelection he may be one cog in getting the Democrats a Senate majority. Way to go Republicans.

Hey GOP Senators, This Is It – No Hearings No Votes.  Bend forward for Obama’s appointment and you’ll find yourselves bending over on election day.

Hatch: Don’t block vote on SCOTUS nominee. The RINO circus is starting. Prepare to bend forward and grab you ankles. It’s becoming obvious the Republicans do not want to win this election. What better way to do it than piss off almost every Republican in the country by giving something to Obama he doesn’t deserve?

Mitch McConnell stands at the crux of U.S. history.

This is perhaps the most important judicial appointment in the history of the United States.

We’re already seeing rumors of Mitch McConnell folding on Obama’s new SCOTUS nominee, something Mitch and much of the GOPe seem to be professionals at.

Democrats including Obama, the Clintons, Sanders, Schumer, Reid and a host of others smell blood and the pressure is on to get McConnell to cave in and let Obama have his way again.

What they’re trying to foist upon everyone including McConnell is that the Senate must act on Obama’s candidate, there’s only a limited amount of time, they must hold a hearing and vote, none of which is correct. They know the  Senate is under no constitutional obligation to do anything with any appointee but they’ll keep the pressure on.

McConnell has two choices. He fold or he can man up, cross his arms, tell Grassley to shut up about hearings and simply tell Obama “NO!” This is what puts McConnell at the crux of U.S. history.

The latter means Obama will not be making any lame duck appointments and could provide an opportunity for a new Republican president to appoint a new conservative justice. The worst case is that Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders will make an appointment that could still be somewhat controlled if a Republican majority with some backbone still holds the Senate.

Think about things like: if you like gay marriage you’ll love people marrying their pets, parents, brothers and sisters. You’ll love billions of  new “immigrants,” free everything, living in Soviet style cement housing with 5 families to an apartment, Sharia Law, no Constitution, the death of Christianity and gulags. When they run out of other people’s money the fun will really begin. (Think Venezuela)

A lot of Republicans stayed home during the last election. If Mitch folds, watch the number of ticked off Republican voters who will stay home increase by millions. There will be no need to vote because it won’t matter whether you vote for Trump, Bush, Kasich, Carson, Rubio or Snoopy, it’s over.

So Mitch? Do you want to go down in history as Senate Leader by actually leading? Or do you want to go down in history as Obama’s Bitch Mitch, destroyer of the Republic?

Hillary Emails: Sidney Blumenthal Urged Use of Bin Laden Corpse Photos to Make Congress ‘Liegemen Bowing Before’ Obama. Gee Sydney, why didn’t you suggest Obama get a white horse, dress like Caesar and parade around Washington, DC with Bin Laden’s head on a pike?

Dems in Senate passed a resolution in 1960 against election year Supreme Court appointments. What goes around comes around. If this is correct the Democrats bit themselves in their own asses.

No hearings. No votes. The liberals are already screaming that the Senate not voting on Obama’s nominee is unconstitutional. Here’s why that’s a big lie.

Scalia_1Senior U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia found dead at West Texas ranch. RIP. In our book he was the best judge on SCOTUS. Better start stocking up on guns, ammo, more guns and yet more ammo. Obama and his buddies like Bloomberg et al, are no doubt salivating already. We hope the Republicans dig their heels in on any appointment until after the election. We won’t hold our breath.

Senate report: Illegal immigrants benefited from up to $750M in ObamaCare subsidies. As usual no one is responsible, no one will be arrested, no one will be jailed, no one will be deported, no one will get one damn penny back.
