Fearing the Will of the American People, Democ rats’ Illegal Plan to Nationalize Healthcare – Atlas Shrugs
This is what the Dems have fallen to. What utter contempt of the will of the people.
Do the American people see the Dems for what they are? Could the Dems’ contempt for the American people be any more naked? They spit on the Constitution. They spit on the rule of law. They spit on the will of the American people.
These are the actions of a statist ruling class. And this is a battle for the future of America. It is that huge.
Fearing Senate Loss, Democrats Weigh Health-Care Options Wall Street Journal
WASHINGTON—With the Massachusetts Senate seat unexpectedly in play, Democrats are weighing alternative scenarios for passing a health bill without their filibuster-proof majority.
Close Senate Race in Massachusetts
A key vote in the Massachusetts Senate race could have a huge impact on the health-care overhaul bill. Video courtesy of Fox News. Congressional Democrats and the White House have rapidly stepped up the pace of negotiations on a final bill in the last 48 hours as polls showed a tightening race in Tuesday’s special election.
But Senate leaders need every one of the 60 votes they can call on—including two independents—to pass the bill. A Republican victory in Tuesday’s special Senate election would deprive them of that margin.
It’s also possible that vulnerable Democrats could bolt after a defeat, leaving more votes to make up. Even a narrow victory for Democratic contender Martha Coakley—in one of the nation’s bluest states—could unnerve fellow party members.
Maryland Rep. Chris Van Hollen, a member of the Democratic leadership circle in the House, acknowledged Friday the Massachusetts race would "complicate things if we lose."
Here are some scenarios should that come to pass:
Rep. Anthony Weiner (D., N.Y.), said many lawmakers have decided that, if she loses, the party would have no choice but to cram a plan through as quickly as possible, while working to delay Mr. Brown’s arrival to the Senate.
"We’re going to have to finish this bill and then stall the swearing-in as long as possible," Mr. Weiner said. "That’s our strategy, a hurry-up-and-stall strategy."
Obama’s EEOC Nominee: Society Should ‘Not Tolerate Private Beliefs’ That ‘Adversely Affect’ Homosexuals
She says that sexual preferences trump religious beliefs.
So, who will she have making sure that our “private beliefs” are in line with her approved thoughts?
(CNSNews.com) – Chai Feldblum, the Georgetown University law professor nominated by President Obama to serve on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, has written that society should “not tolerate” any “private beliefs,” including religious beliefs, that may negatively affect homosexual “equality.”
Feldblum, whose nomination was advanced in a closed session of the Senate Health Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee on December 12, published an article entitled “Moral Conflict and Liberty: Gay Rights and Religion” in the Brooklyn Law Review in 2006.
Gee, Dems cheat to get votes? It’s not like they have a whole national organization created to help them break the law like ACORN, right? Oh, wait a sec…
Democrats are widely expect to cheat to hold onto the contested Senate seat in Massachusetts — and their strident supporters at MSNBC are egging them on. Here goes Ed Schultz of comrade Obama’s favorite network:
If I lived in Massachusetts, I’d try to vote ten times. I don’t know if they’d let me or not, but I’d try to. Yeah, that’s right, I’d cheat to keep these bastards [i.e., anyone to the right of Karl Marx] out.
Proving Schultz to be no lone loose cannon, Chris "Tingles" Matthews advocates buying votes:
You know in the old days, maybe I shouldn’t be harkening back to the old days, if the Democrats faced this kind of a disaster in the works, you’d go back to your ones, the people you were sure are going to vote Democrat, and you’d make sure they got to the polling place, you’d get them lunch, you’d get them a car. … You’d make sure they got there and in some cases you’d be buying people to get them, not officially buying them, but getting them there as block secretaries, as block captains, you’d be getting them there with street money, legitimate but it’s a little bit old school.
- Fifty-eight percent of Americans now say they disapprove of the way President Barack Obama is handling the health-care issue, while only 37% say they approve, the lowest level of his presidency, according to a Gallup poll released today (Jan 13, 2010)
- Sixty-two percent of Americans now say the country has veered seriously off on to the wrong track, according to a new poll from the Washington Post and ABC News. That is up 14 points from April 2009 (Jan 12-15, 2010)
- Fifty-eight percent said they favor a smaller government with fewer services, and only 38 percent said they favor a larger government with more services. (Wash Post, Jan 12-15, 2010)
- Scott Brown leads Martha Coakley 51-46 in our final Massachusetts Senate poll, an advantage that is within the margin of error for the poll. (PPP – Jan 17, 2010)
Hmmm. Seems to be a common thread here… Maybe that the US hate Obama’s agenda?
The first time I really saw video of Scott Brown that really struck me was when he responded with the now famous “it’s the people’s seat”.
I was amazed with how he was able to reply with such a perfect response instantly. He might have given some thought to it beforehand, but he didn’t need a teleprompter to say it. His personal charisma carried it without a speech writer.
So, then I began to wonder, was it just great forethought on his part, or is he actually that quick to reply with what he thinks. I have to say, as time goes on, I lean towards the latter. Take a look:
What pisses me off here is that Obama didn’t send troops earlier. His ego and pride wouldn’t let him learn the lesson that Bush learned and fixed. Instead, he delayed the troops until he could decide how to handle it politically. And people die.
The additional troops aren’t even over there yet, and the Taliban know it. They attack before our Coward-In-Chief gets off his ass and gets Afghanistan shored up. Don’t agree? Look at the deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan last month. Afganistan has a record number of deaths, Iraq had NONE. It’s only Obama’s misplaced ego that prevented him from emulating a solution that worked… Bush’s surge.
KABUL — Taliban militants struck in the heart of the Afghan capital Monday, launching suicide attacks at key government targets in a clear sign the insurgents plan to escalate their fight as the U.S. and its allies ramp up their own campaign to end the war. At least five people, including a child, were killed and nearly 40 wounded, officials said.
After a series of blasts and more than three hours of ensuing gunfights outside several ministries and inside a shopping mall, President Hamid Karzai said security had been restored to the capital, though search operations continued amid reports that attackers were hiding in the city.
It was the biggest attack in the capital since Oct. 28 when gunmen with automatic weapons and suicide vests stormed a guest house used by U.N. staff, killing at least 11 people including three U.N. staff.
Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid told The Associated Press that 20 armed militants, including some with suicide vests, had entered Kabul to target the presidential palace and other government buildings in the center of the capital.
Explosions and heavy machine-gun fire rattled the city for hours. Debris was strewn on the streets, which were quickly abandoned by crowds that normally fill the area. Defense Ministry spokesman Gen. Mohammad Zahir Azimi said a child and a policeman were killed. The Ministry of Public Health later said five people — a civilian and four security forces — were killed and 30 others wounded.
One more example of the Dems complete disconnect from what is going on.
Rep. Patrick Kennedy went to Boston today to help Martha Coakley in her quest to fill Teddy Kennedy’s Senate Seat. Patrick Kennedy is Teddy Kennedy’s son.
He didn’t even know her name.
Hotline On Call reported, via Drudge:
Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-RI), speaking with a gaggle of reporters after the event, said that while state Sen. Scott Brown (R) offers voters a quick fix, in reality, the problems created by “George Bush and his cronies” are not so easily solved.
“If you think there’s magic out there and things can be turned around overnight, then you would vote for someone who could promise you that, like Scott Brown,” Kennedy said. “If you don’t, if you know that it takes eight years for George Bush and his cronies to put our country into this hole … then you know we have a lot of digging to do, but some work needs to be done and this president’s in the process of doing it and we need to get Marcia Coakley to help him to do that.”
(Curiously, Kennedy mentioned Coakley repeatedly during his remarks to reporters, each time referring to her as “Marcia,” not “Martha.”)
Is it just me, or is a Bush-bash more effective if you know who the h*ll you’re campaigning for?
