Illinois House Votes to Override Governor’s Veto of Concealed Carry Bill

 

 

” The House voted 77-31 to override the veto and further paving the way for implementing a method of concealed carry in Illinois.

The measure will now go to the Senate for a final vote, expected later today, where it is expected to pass as well.

Governor Quinn tried to lobby for the passage of his significantly more restrictive version of the bill citing a weekend of extreme gun violence in the city of Chicago where over 70 people where shot over the holiday weekend.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

John Boehner Puts Conditions In Place That Mean Amnesty Is Dead In The House

 

” So, how did proponents of amnesty hope to get a bill through the House if only a handful of Republicans would vote for it? Simple, they wanted John Boehner to betray his caucus.

Boehner had already explicitly said that he wouldn’t violate the Hastert rule by bringing a bill up that the majority of his caucus opposed, but he has now gone a step further than that.

Speaker John Boehner said at a press conference today that for “any legislation — including a conference report — to pass the House, it’s going to have to be a bill that has the support of a majority of our members.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grover Norquist: Vote For Deal Is Vote To Cut Taxes

 

 

” Grover Norquist, the Americans for Tax Reform president and anti-tax activist who has become a key figure in the ongoing negotiations on the fiscal cliff, took to Twitter as the House was voting Tuesday night to give his blessing to the deal:

 

Norquist Spin
Norquist, of course, is the architect of the anti-tax pledge signed by the vast majority of congressional Republicans, and his statement Tuesday night could give political cover to the 85 members of the House GOP conference who voted “yes” on the deal.”

Benghazi … The Truth

Tea Party Nation

 

 

 

 ” Republicans held Congressional hearings yesterday on the disaster at the Benghazi Consulate that killed four Americans.  If the Republicans did not control Congress, these hearings would never have happened.

 

These hearings exposed the shocking truth, not the propaganda the Obama Regime wanted us to believe.  What is the truth about Benghazi?

 

The truth is the Obama Regime lied.  The truth is Benghazi was the result of Obama policies in the Middle East.  The truth is the Obama Regime, instead of acting like America is a superpower, tried instead to appease savages. 

 

The truth is the Obama Regime knew within hours this was a terrorist attack.  Even as they deliberately lied to the American people, they knew what was really behind the attack.  They blamed the attack on the actions of a filmmaker and decried the freedom that makes America great. 

 

At the time they knew they were sitting on a time bomb.  The truth is the boots on the ground warned the political appointees of the Obama Regime that help was needed.  They told Washington more security was needed.  They protested the withdrawal of security and support personnel.”

More tales of those most ethical dems

” House Ethics Committee investigators faulted Rep. Laura Richardson, D-Calif., for intimidating her staff, forcing them to “volunteer” for her campaign and obstructing their investigation
into her violations of House rules.
The bipartisan group of investigators “unanimously concluded that there was
substantial reason to believe” that Richardson violated House rules “by improperly using House
resources for campaign, personal, and nonofficial purposes; by requiring or compelling her official staff to perform campaign work; and by obstructing the investigation of the Committee and the ISC through the alteration or
destruction of evidence, the deliberate failure to produce documents responsive to requests for information and a subpoena, and attempting to influence the testimony of witnesses.” “

  We are in serious trouble when the alleged “freedom loving” republicans controlling the House pass a snooping bill .

” Facebook and other tech companies, and various business groups support the bill. Civil
and digital liberties groups have raised objections, however, over whether the bill would
expand government surveillance of private citizens.
   The Electronic Frontier Foundation issued a condemnation of the House for its vote, and pledged to continue its fight against the legislation in the Senate.
“Hundreds of thousands of Internet users spoke out against this bill, and their numbers will only
grow as we move this debate to the Senate,” said EFF activism director Rainey Reitman in a statement issued after the House vote. “

 

Is it too much to ask for justice at Justice ?

May Brian Terry and his family, as well as the hundreds of other victims and their families find  peace in the possibility of some measure of truth and justice being brought to light through the tireless efforts of Congressman Issa and the others on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

Agent Terry has become the symbol of a government gone rogue. And he’s not the only victim of firearms involved in Operation Fast and Furious.

“This briefing paper and draft contempt report explains the case, to both Members of the Committee and the American people, for holding Attorney General Holder in contempt of Congress,” Issa said in the statement. “In describing the results of the Justice Department’s refusal to cooperate – including the hardships the family of a fallen Border Patrol agent have faced in seeking the truth, and retaliation against agents who blew the whistle on gunwalking – this briefing paper provides the facts, on which decisions will be made.”
