Harry Reid Controlled Senate Took 657 Votes…But Only Passed 25 Laws…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Now if we take the amount of money made by Harry Reid, and divide by the number of laws passed, I’d bet he’s got a pretty high average going… This is either ridiculous or a great thing depending on how you look at it…maybe both. Via Washington Examiner: New statistics from C-SPAN detailing the activity in the Senate over the past two years appears to defy the 113th Congress’ reputation as “do-nothing.” The public service cable operation that covers the Senate and House gavel to gavel found that the total number of roll call votes taken in […]

Must See Video: Tea Party Nation Founder – GOP Collapse Imminent

Hat/Tip to Sean Piccoli at Newsmax. History.com had this to say about the demise of the Whig Party which was brought about, in part by the birth of the Republican Party: Ultimately, however, the Whigs are best understood as an American major party trying to be many things to many men, ready to abandon one deeply held ‘conviction’ for another in the drive for political power. The party died not because its unique aura no longer appealed to voters but because it could not cope effectively or persuasively with what after the Compromise of 1850 became the great issue of […]

‘It’s Basically Tree Bark Now:’ Students Up Complaints About Michelle O’s Lunch Menu

Hat/Tip to Kyle Olson at EAGnews.org. As we’ve stated before, this is an issue that we’ve covered thoroughly. Kudos to Kyle Olson at EAGnews.org who is also covering this intrusion by Progressive Liberal Michelle Obama who believes she knows better how and what to feed our children, than we do. Here in it’s entirety is Kyle Olson’s article: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ BALLWIN, Mo. – Students have no problem telling adults exactly what they think of the new “healthy” school lunches championed by First Lady Michelle Obama. “It’s basically tree bark now,” Parkway West High School senior Stone Ramatowski tells St. Louis Post-Dispatch. […]

Step By Step Guide To Replace John Boehner As Speaker Of The House

  Hat/Tip to Crow’s Nest Politics. Could it happen? Yes, it could, but we’d have to practically melt the phone lines in DC to really get the GOP Rank-n-File’s attention. Let us not forget that nowhere does it say that the Speaker has to be a member of the House of Representatives. They can elect anyone to that post. INSTRUCTIONS; 1. Click on the map or hyperlink and get your phone number and email address. 2. VERY POLITELY call your Representatives office. Inform the “STAFFER” that you would like to officially make your House Member aware that we do not […]

Obama Lied: Illegal Aliens Don’t Need To Pay Back Taxes To Get Amnesty

  Three times Barack Obama said his executive order would require illegal aliens to pay their back taxes before becoming eligible for amnesty. Guess what? He lied. President Obama misspoke when he said that immigrants living illegally in the U.S. would have to “pay any back taxes” in order to qualify for work papers under the plan he initiated via executive action. They would not. The immigration plan announced by Obama on Nov. 20 provides a temporary relief of three years from the threat of deportation to parents who are in the country illegally but who have children who are […]

Majority Of Schools Say They Are Losing Money Because Of Michelle Obama’s Healthy Lunch Mandate

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. This is an issue that Conservative Hideout 2.0 has covered extensively, see the links below the story. What are the odds Mooch would eat the crap she has students eating? Via Washington Examiner: More than half of the nation’s school cafeteria workers expect to lose money selling low-salt, low-fat meals pushed by first lady Michelle Obama, a “serious” problem that threatens the programs, according to a survey of food providers. The School Nutrition Association, which is planning to demand changes to the meal requirements to make the food more attractive to students, found that 50.35 percent […]

RINOS Beware: Sean Hannity Yanks Karl Rove Off The Air!

Hat/Tip to iizthatiiz. Why did Hannity cut Karl Rove off? Well he was in the middle of defending Boehner’s total sell out to the Conservative movement, for one. But to be fair, no explanation was given, so we are left to only wonder. However, we’ll see from here on out how often Rove is asked back to be on Hannity’s show and if he is, just how far will he go to defend Boehner? December 11th, 2014 • Fox News host Sean Hannity is calling for the removal of John Boehner as House Speaker in the wake of the passage […]

New Lois Lerner Emails Show Obama’s Justice Department Involved In IRS Targeting Scandal…

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers and Robert W. Wood at Forbes. The hubris of Lois Lerner and Obama’s DOJ is surpassed only by the sheer narcissism of Barack Obama himself. The more digging done on this scandal, the closer it gets to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. As it is, the Department of Justice is basically “investigating” itself. Sadly, the 18 month investigation into the IRS targeting of conservative groups isn’t over, and it may be worse than anyone thought. A federal judge has broken loose more emails that the DOJ had surely hoped would never surface. The picture it reveals isn’t pretty. The […]

Mandate? We Don’t Need No Steenking Mandate: Boehner’s Spending Deals Have Increased Debt $4 TRILLION

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. “I came as a reformer, but when people in charge don’t want to reform, the only way is revolution!” Did that quote come from one of the Tea Party House Republicans? No. Ted Cruz, over in the Senate? Nuh-uh. Believe it or not that quote came from John Boehner’s own lips. – Hat/Tip to Mark Levin. He said that as a firebrand young Conservative member of the House, intent on reforming the GOP and cutting the wasteful spending practices of Washington back in 1993. My oh my, how the times have changed. Fast forward 21 1/2 years […]

House GOP Leadership Take Page From Pelosi Playbook To Trick Rank And File Into Supporting Obama’s Amnesty By Executive Order

    Hat/Tip to Matthew Boyle at Breitbart.com. Continuing to prove his fidelity to the Tea Party and all it stands for, Texas Representative Louie Gohmert shined a spotlight on a tricky maneuver that would make Nancy Pelosi green with envy. Well okay, Pelosi is green much of the time, but you know what I mean. In a lengthy interview on Friday afternoon, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) exposed how House Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Majority Whip Steve Scalise strengthened President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty with procedural trickery former Speaker Nancy Pelosi and ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber […]

Hillary Who? She Speaks To Empty Seats At Georgetown

  Hat/Tip to Matt Vespa at TownHall.com. Oops, she failed again to fill another venue. Gaston Hall at Georgetown University is only a 750 seat auditorium, and Hillz couldn’t even put that many asses in the seats. But yeah, SHE’S the next president… It’s too early to say if this was due to the news about her speaking fees, her personality, or college students deciding not to show up after the Thanksgiving break; but it’s certainly not good media attention for the Clinton machine. . View from balcony as Hillary Clinton speaks at Georgetown Univ. in DC. pic.twitter.com/ckciKemPug — M. Scott […]

NJ Democrats’ Bridgegate Report Clears Chris Christie

  They dug, and they dug, and they dug. And they found nothing. Oops. A report summarizing a yearlong investigation by the legislative panel examining the George Washington Bridge lane closures found no evidence of Governor Christie’s involvement but concluded that two of his allies acted “with perceived impunity” when they gridlocked Fort Lee’s streets apparently for political reasons. The committee’s 136-page report, drawing off sworn testimony, private interviews and thousands of subpoenaed documents, also highlights the unsuccessful efforts by a now-shuttered arm of Christie’s office to court the Fort Lee mayor’s endorsement, finding that the closures were “motivated in […]

Family Of Black Man Shot By Brooklyn Cop To Al Sharpton: Stay Away, You Are NOT Welcome At The Funeral

Hat/Tip to Nickarama at WeaselZippers. It’s good to see people finally standing up to this contemptible human being. The police describe this shooting as “accidental”, why the officer had the gun out is unclear. But part of the problem was the stairway was so dark you could not see clearly. Which means you also couldn’t see that the man was black, sorry race hustlers. This man’s killing was wrong, but appears to have absolutely nothing to do with race. But then again, neither did the Ferguson or Garner cases have any indication that race was at all a factor. Via […]

Hillary Demands Royal Treatment On Speaking Tour…

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Let them eat cake!!! Hillz demands hummus and crudité, lemon wedges and bottled water. You don’t say… Via Truth Revolt: It was like a scene out of “The Princess and the Pea,” only this was real life. Along with her $300,000 fee for her speech at UCLA , Hillary Clinton had a list of demands, one of which was “that the chairs be outfitted with two long, rectangular pillows — and that two cushions be kept backstage in case the chair was too deep and she needed additional back support.” Through a Freedom of Information Act request […]

The Story of the First Thanksgiving 2014

  This is the annual CH 2.0 re-telling of the true story of the first Thanksgiving. By Matt Ross ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I heard  this story years ago, so I thought I’d post it. The official story has the pilgrims boarding the Mayflower, coming to America and establishing the Plymouth colony in the winter of 1620-21. This first winter is hard, and half the colonists die. But the survivors are hard working and tenacious, and they learn new farming techniques from the Indians. The harvest of 1621 is bountiful. The Pilgrims hold a celebration, and give thanks to God. They are grateful for the […]

NY Times: Hagel Forced Out For Portraying Islamic State As A Serious Threat And Not A Junior Varsity Team…

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers and the New York Times. It would seem that telling Americans the truth and labeling ISIS a credible threat was just too much for King President Obama to handle. … Mr. Hagel, for his part, spent his time on the job largely carrying out Mr. Obama’s stated wishes on matters like bringing back American troops from Afghanistan and trimming the Pentagon budget, with little pushback. He did manage to inspire loyalty among enlisted soldiers and often seemed at his most confident when talking to troops or sharing wartime experiences as a Vietnam veteran. But Mr. Hagel […]

Stephanopoulos Asks Obama Tough Question On Ruling By Executive Order: Gets Long Rambling Response

  Hat/Tip to Nickarama at WeaselZippers and Zach Noble at The Blaze. If You Can Selectively Enforce Immigration Law, What Prevents Another President From Not Enforcing Tax Laws? In a surprising turn of events, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked a rather tough question of King President Obama on his recent granting of amnesty to 5 million illegal aliens. What does Obama say? Oh, that would be wrong. Via The Blaze: If President Barack Obama can exercise “prosecutorial discretion” — basically deciding not to enforce the law in certain cases — when it comes to immigration, could later presidents decide not to enforce […]
