House Overwhelmingly Passes ‘Audit The Fed’ Bill

 

 

 

 

 

” The Swiss people are speaking out against their central bank. They have demanded a referendum with backing their currency with 20 percent gold and demanding return of their gold stored in the United States. Likewise, the American people are seeking restraints on the Fed—our central bank.

  The House overwhelmingly passed a bill to Audit the Fed and, if it ever becomes law, the people will demand reform of our monetary system that rewards a privileged few at the expense of the middle class and poor. This bill was passed in the House once before in 2012 while I was still a member. Fortunately the momentum continues, and thanks especially to Paul Broun of Georgia and Thomas Massie of Kentucky. It passed this time with an even greater margin—327 to 98—which was strongly bipartisan. “

Bipartisan Deal On Background Checks Is Close

 

 

Bipartisan Backstabber Pat Toomey

 

 

”  A bipartisan deal seems imminent on expanding background checks to more gun buyers, an agreement that could build support for President Barack Obama’s drive to curb firearms violence.

Meanwhile, the Senate is ready for an opening vote on restricting guns as Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., set a roll call for Thursday on starting consideration of the firearms legislation. Odds are growing that Democrats will win enough Republican support to thwart an effort by conservatives and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to block consideration from even starting.

Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Patrick Toomey, R-Pa., were expected to announce a background check compromise on Wednesday. Subjecting more firearms purchases to federal background checks has been the chief goal of Obama and gun control supporters, who promote the system as a way to prevent criminals and other risky people from getting the weapons.

After weeks of negotiations, Manchin and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., told reporters late Tuesday that a gun control agreement was close.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Senate Plan Would Give Napolitano The Final Say On Border Security

 

” Under a bipartisan Senate framework, Democrats say, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano would have final say over whether the border is secure enough to put 11 million illegal immigrants on a path to citizenship.

If Napolitano does not provide the green light for putting illegal immigrants on a pathway to citizenship, the responsibility for judging whether the metrics for border security have been met will be given to her successor.”

 

 

 

   This is a bipartisan solution to illegal immigration ? What on earth is wrong with the GOP ? Spineless , panderers … Losers and destined to remain so without a backbone among them .

The Ground Shifts On Immigration

” Today a bipartisan group of Senators will unveil the framework for a major new immigration reform bill. You can read the framework right here. The most important fact about the plan is that it articulates as a policy goal the need to provide a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants. That was the bottom line for Senate Democrats and immigration reform advocates, and they got four Republican Senators to agree to it.

It’s the price Democrats paid for this concession that could be the problem. It’s a cliche to say at such moments that the “Devil is in the details,” but in this case, boy is the Devil ever in the details.

The rub is that the process for putting undocumented immigrants — who will be granted probationary legal status — on a path to citizenship is contingent on a commission deciding that the border is secure. The framework describes that commission this way:

We recognize that Americans living along the Southwest border are key to recognizing and understanding when the border is truly secure. Our legislation will create a commission of governors, attorneys general and community leaders living along the southwest border to monitor the progress of securing our border and to make a recommendation regarding when the bill’s security measures outlined in the legislation are completed.”

   This all sounds like the “bipartisan” republicans have actually forced the dems to give up something and to create the appearance that they are toeing a hard line but it is all a sham , read on …

As Sharry put it, Democrats realize that they can’t “allow the commission to have a real veto” over setting in motion the path to citizenship. He noted that Dems see the commission as “something that gives the Republicans a talking point” to claim they are prioritizing tough enforcement, giving themselves cover to back a process that “won’t stop people from getting citizenship.”

   So the enforcement mechanism is a line of bulls**t so that the Rino’s can try to have it both ways … Sucking up to the Hispanic lobby and standing tall with their law and order conservative base . Citizens screwed and sold down the river once again in hopes of gaining a few more votes for the GOP . What a bunch of cowardly snakes . And they wonder why the are the minority party ? IDIOTS !

   These Rino’s are deluding themselves if they think that supporting amnesty will buy them any cred with the Hispanic voting bloc . This path has been trodden before  , back in 1986 by a strong republican president , and 27 years later is the hispanic share of the vote for the GOP any better ? 

Here are some stats from the past 9 presidential elections …

 

–1980 Jimmy Carter, 56% Ronald Reagan, 35% +21

–1984 Walter Mondale, 61% Ronald Reagan, 37% +24

Reagan Signs Amnesty Bill , November 1986 

–1988 Michael Dukakis, 69% George H.W. Bush, 30% +39

–1992 Bill Clinton, 61% George H.W. Bush, 25% +36

–1996 Bill Clinton, 72% Bob Dole, 21% +51

–2000 Al Gore, 62% George W. Bush, 35% +27

–2004 John Kerry, 58% George W. Bush, 40% +18

–2008 Barack Obama, 67% John McCain, 31% +36

–2012 Barack Obama, 71% Mitt Romney, 27% +44

   And bear in mind that none of the above listed republican presidential candidates were what one might consider hard-liners regarding immigration reform . As a matter of fact they were all pretty much squishes in that regard and their lack of convictions produced exactly nothing in terms of increased Hispanic voter loyalty to the GOP .

Larry Elder at Townhall

“President Barack Obama’s re-election turns on his ability to convince voters that 1) Obama inherited a “Great Recession,” 2) every “independent” economist supported the “stimulus,” 3) “bipartisan” economists agree that Obama’s stimulus worked, and 4) as actor Morgan Freeman puts it, racist Republicans say, “Screw the country … we’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man outta here” — nothing to do with deeply held policy differences.”

Here’s to hoping the snake oil salesman has lost his touch and the kool-aid is about gone .

   Fool me once …. Shame on you …. Fool me twice …. Shame on …. US

No , No , No

 It would be insane to cede control of the internet to that den of thieves , dictators and terrorists .

“A bipartisan group of lawmakers on the House Energy and Commerce Committee introduced a resolution on Wednesday urging the Obama administration to oppose efforts to give the United Nations more control over the Internet.”
