Wisconsin Democrat Fleebaggers violate Senate Rule 23
  28 Feb 2011     10:52 am      SusanAnne Hiller

Yes, Rule 23:
Senate Rule 23
   Senate Rule 23. Committee not to be absent. Members of a committee, except a conference committee, may not be absent by reason of their appointment during the sitting of the senate, without special leave.
[am. 2001 S.Res. 2] emphasis mine
I’m a literal type of gal, and “may not” means you absolutely, positively cannot be absent–without taking special leave (maybe they could get a doctor’s note).  Here are the past and future committee schedules for February and March 2011.
Will tone-deaf, taxpayer-betraying Democrats Tim Carpenter, Spencer Coggs, Tomothy Cullen, …

Now THERE’S Chutzpah: Obama Claims He hasn’t Raised Taxes?
  8 Feb 2011     11:42 am      Warner Todd Huston

John Kartch over at Americans for Tax Reform found President Obama’s claim that he hasn’t raised taxes a bit, shall we say, quixotic. At one point in the interview with Obama conducted by Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly and shown on Sunday, Obama stated bald faced that he didn’t do so. The truth seems to be a different animal, however.
Employing his best preacher’s alliterative mode by repeating it twice, Obama told O’Reilly, “I didn’t raise taxes once. I lowered taxes over the last two years. I lowered taxes for …

Senate’s Repeal Healthcare Vote Failure Further Makes Lie to Term ‘Conservative Democrat’
  2 Feb 2011     7:10 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Newly minted West Virginia Senator, Democrat Joe Manchin, ran for office denigrating Obama’s take over of our national healthcare system with his Obamacare law. Tonight he and other so-called “conservative Democrats” in the Senate got a chance to prove that they were, indeed, as conservative as they claimed to be by voting to repeal Obamacare. Not one of them made that vote, however.
In a vote strictly down party lines, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R, KY) repeal measure lost in a 51 to 47 vote. It needed a 60 vote …

The Twitter List of GOP Freshman in Congress
  31 Jan 2011     3:56 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Want to know what all the GOP freshmen in the House of Representatives and the Senate are twittering about? Well, with this list you can tune into the Twitter feed of each of them and find out what is going on minute by minute.
Well, OK, not exactly minute-by-minute but at least week-by-week. Not all of them are using their Twitter to its full potential. A very few of these fellows have barley touched their Twitter feed at all, some don’t even seem to have one. Most of them, however, …

A Snap Shot of Congressional Arrogance
  31 Jan 2011     11:00 am      Warner Todd Huston

POLITICO posted a piece last week that shows the arrogance of our duly elected Senators in Washington D.C. After reading this piece, one gets the impression that this good old boys club is not only one that not just anyone is allowed to join but one that finds itself beyond even the voters that put them there. It is an arrogance of self-assumed stature in this great Republic that is galling and should be.
The piece, headlined “Mark Kirk not sorry for Senate ‘end zone dance,’” was all full of the …

Petty RI Gov. Bans Talk Radio Appearances for State Workers
  15 Jan 2011     11:37 am      Warner Todd Huston

Lincoln Chafee was the bane of conservative talk radio when he was the RINO Senator from Rhode Island. Now that he is a newly minted “independent” and has become the Governor of the Ocean State, Chafee is in a position to take his revenge on the medium. And boy has this petty man used his power to do just that by banning his state employees from talking to talk radio.
Chafee has revealed some pretty warped logic to sustain his ban on talk radio, too. Through his spokesman, Chaffe said that …

NH Republican Establishment Working Against Tea Party Candidate?
  15 Jan 2011     7:00 am      Warner Todd Huston

And so it begins. Now that the 2010 midterms are done and the Tea Party has shown itself to be a real political force, the GOP establishment is making plans to undermine Tea Party power and reassert its own RINO, country club control of the party. It’s happening in New Hampshire, anyway, as it seems as if outgoing NH Republican Party Chairman John Sununu is engaging in a whisper campaign against Tea Party backed Jack Kimball who is vying to become the next GOP chairman for the Granite State.
According to …

Crook County Illinois: Fake State Rep Casts Deciding Vote to Raise Our Taxes
  14 Jan 2011     3:37 pm      Warner Todd Huston

She didn’t know anything about the bill. She never read it. She hadn’t been given any cheat sheets, facts sheets, talking points, or mass emails on the bill. But in true, corrupt Chicago fashion, she voted “yes” on it just as she was told to do by her corrupt party bosses.
Even worse, she was only a “state rep” because someone told her to drive to the state capitol for a week to “be” one. As Andy Shaw joked, Williams became the “somebody that somebody sent.”*
It is business as usual for …

Union Boss With History of Violence Decries Vitriolic Rhetoric of Right
  12 Jan 2011     11:34 am      Warner Todd Huston

Well, it’s the old “glass houses” story, isn’t it? AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka weighed in on the criminal shooting in Arizona and naturally he blamed the whole incident on “too much vitriolic, hate-filled rhetoric that we hear on radio and television.” This from a guy who has many times used worse rhetoric to incite violence in his unionizing past. Glass houses indeed.
On the AFL-CIO blog, Trumka wrote:

We must find ways to passionately debate and even disagree with each other without using words that can give unstable individuals an incitement to …

In 2011 Public Employees Unions Must Be Targeted for Elimination
  5 Jan 2011     9:00 am      Warner Todd Huston

-By Warner Todd Huston
One of the biggest recurring themes in union reporting these days is music to the ears of any fiscally responsible American. It seems almost weekly that we are seeing stories that recount the ire being directed at public employee unions. Let us hope that this reporting is the first ripples of an anti-union tidal wave that will sweep public employee unions from our governments drowning in union-created red ink.
One of the latest is an editorial out of Wisconsin by the Lakeland Times’ Gregg Walker. Walker kicked off …

GOP’s Speaker-To-Be Boehner Already Bowing to Democrats in House?
  4 Jan 2011     10:04 am      Warner Todd Huston

Think of this scenario: Your party has been swept into office with the biggest majority in generations. The majority of Americans think the country is on the verge of emergency and want things fixed pronto. And you are poised to become the next Speaker of the House. So what do you do? A). Steel your party for the hard and fast work to come, or B). Announce you are handing power over to the losing side, the one responsible for most of the recent destruction of the country the voters …

Another Losing Republican Scolds the Nation For Firing Him
  3 Jan 2011     12:34 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Outgoing Republican Representative from South Carolina Bob Inglis is not going off into forced retirement quietly. No, Ol’ Bobby wants us all to know that the nation has failed him. He and his soft-spinned, middle of the road, week-kneed sort of Republican has been roughly handled by real conservatives and its just not fair, apparently.
You see, quite despite what the voters all across the country said last November — not to mention his own constituents — we were all just too stupid to understand that his sort of “credible conservative” …

Republicans Plan ObamaCare Repeal Votes Before State Of The Union
  3 Jan 2011     9:28 am      William Teach

Incoming House Speaker John Boehner pledges that the GOP “Pledge To America” will not become a worthless piece of paper, much as the “Contract with America” became. Things will change. He has already put out the new rules, and plans to take them seriously. We’ll see. And one thing we’ll see soon will be votes to repeal ObamaCare
Soon after the 112th Congress convenes Wednesday, Republicans in the House plan to make good on a campaign promise that helped vault many new members to victory: voting to repeal President Obama’s health …

Shocking: Dave Weigel Doesn’t Get Sarah Palin
  30 Dec 2010     7:30 am      Warner Todd Huston

Like most leftists, former Washington Post blogger David Weigel just doesn’t get Sarah Palin. Weigel took a look at the year-end contributions from the Political Action Committees (PACs) sponsored by Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin and what he saw there baffled him. While Weigel thought he understood the “strategy” of Romney’s donations, he admitted that he just couldn’t understand Palin’s.
Weigel took a look at the Federal Elections Commission’s emerging reporting records of the two GOP player’s campaign donations. Weigel figured that Romney was doling out his campaign donations in key …

Christine O’Donnell Responds to Rumors of Investigations
  29 Dec 2010     5:43 pm      Warner Todd Huston

Word has run like wildfire through the Internet that former GOP Senate candidate for Delaware, Christine O’Donnell, is under investigation for misuse of campaign funds. O’Donnell flatly refutes the claims and says that these rumors were started by operatives of the establishment of both parties in Delaware, rumors meant to prevent her from ever running for office again.
In an email to supporters, O’Donnell and her staffers said that claims she is under investigation are nothing but “unfounded rumors” and she has not been contacted by officials about an investigation. She …

President Gets Around Annoying Voters, Instills Death Panels By Regulation
  27 Dec 2010     11:13 am      Warner Todd Huston

Some of you may have missed this story since it was published on the day after Christmas (and a Sunday at that), but Obama’s death panels are back, this time via the president’s fiat regulatory powers. Since it was easy to have missed, I’ve decided to post the story today (Monday) so that more people might see it now that Christmas and the weekend both are over.
You might recall the end of life care policies that were once in Obamacare. You might also remember the political firestorm these death panels …

Obama’s Mouthpiece? ABC’s Cokie Roberts Says Voters Will Make Republicans Compromise in 2011??
  24 Dec 2010     12:47 pm      Warner Todd Huston

ABC News talking head Cokie Roberts was shilling for the Obama administration once again on Good Morning America during an interview with former Clinton operative George Stephanopoulos. She wasn’t just shilling for Obama but tying to mold the news and public opinion to her left-wing druthers instead of giving an honest review of today’s political climate.
Like the rest of the Old Media establishment, Roberts was filled with praise for the great success that Obama had in this lame duck Congress. “It was incredible,” she gushed.
Of course, Roberts interpreted the …

Arlen Specter’s Sad, Bitter, Goodbye Speech, Reeks of Arrogance
  22 Dec 2010     12:18 am      Jeff Dunetz

Today Arlen Specter said goodbye to the Senate, and in doing so he showed himself to be a bitter, defeated old man. I suppose such is the fate of political opportunists. Ironically he devoted part of his speech to bashing the “right wing” voters who seek to back candidates whose Conservatism was pure. Specter’s career was all about the exact opposite of ideological purity. Specter is the guy who changed political parties twice, in order to save his political career.

Its very interesting to watch the nine-year-old …

Hey, Liberals: Obama Lied to You on ‘Tax Cuts For the Rich’
  21 Dec 2010     11:38 am      Warner Todd Huston

Byron York assembled a collection of some of the many times that candidate Barack Obama told us he’d “roll back” those Bush tax cuts “for the rich.”
Of course, we all know there was never any “tax cuts for the rich,” but from the left’s perspective, Obama has lied to them big time. Will they accept this fact or will they ignore it and pretend everything is still fine proving that they, too, are liars?

“It’s true that I want to roll back the Bush tax cuts on the wealthiest Americans.”
Chester, Pennsylvania, …
