What happens when Democrats do outrageous things? *Cricket Sounds* The media barely cover the abuses & crimes – It’s unbelievable that they can get away with so much. Sure, some are indicted, convicted and go to jail but it seems to be their MO to act lawlessly then ask for forgiveness….but only if they get caught. People are really into the TV show “Scandal,” where a White House insider has an affair with the President (gee…we’ve seen that before haven’t we, Bubba?) All they have to do is pay attention to what’s going on around them to see that real life is much more disturbing than what happens in fiction.
Four Democratic Lawmakers Either Arrested or Raided by the FBI This magnificent group includes Patrick Cannon (the Mayor of Charlotte), William Scarborough (NY Assemblyman), Leland Yee (CA State Senator), and Gordon Fox, (Rhode Island Speaker of the House.)
More on Gordon Fox (He actually resigned. Imagine that.)
And in a class all by himself, Dirty Harry Reid once again shows his true colors: Reid Paid $16,000 in Campaign Funds to Granddaughter For ‘Gifts’ Reid was forced to admit that the “Ryan Elisabeth” on the disbursement funds was actually Ryan Elisabeth Reid, his granddaughter, who supplied jewelry for Reid’s campaign to hand out to supporters. It gets better: Reid’s Granddaughter Also Got Nevada Grants for her NYC Theater. Ryan Elisabeth, in her early 20s and a recent college graduate, describes herself as a “performing arts professional.” In addition to her jewelry company — which is not mentioned on her LinkedIn profile — she also works as an assistant at the Tim Bavington Studio in Las Vegas and as artistic director at Sprat Theatre Company in Brooklyn, N.Y. Donations to the latter organization, which she founded, may raise some eyebrows.
ICYMI: Obama Arrives in Brussels With a 900-Person Entourage While First Lady Michelle Obama enjoys her $8,400/night suite at the five-star Westin Hotel in Chaoyang, President Obama is running up quite the tab in Europe. According to The Guardian, the President’s trip to Brussels required a 900-person entourage and cost the city about $10.4 million – no word on how much money the American taxpayers are on the hook for. Brussels mayor Yvan Mayeur explained typical visits and summits run the city about $690,000 (€500,000) in extra police, military and transport expenses. But “you can multiply that figure by 20” Mayeur said of President Obama’s trip.
Nothing’s more scandalous than this: Deep Budget Cuts May Erode Army’s Ability to Fight Long War The top U.S. Army officer told lawmakers on Tuesday that a return to deep budget cuts as required by law beginning in 2016 would make it difficult for the military to carry out even one extended ground war. And: Obama Demolishes Navy Tomahawk, Hellfire Missiles to 0by 2016 – No Replacement. Admirals Silent
Making this into a scandal was the scandal: Internal Review Clears Christie in Bridge Scandal And Christie Says Scandal Hasn’t Altered Political Plans
Nancy Pelosi – Award Winning Eugenicist. From the “Can the Left be Any More Shameless?” file comes word that Nancy Pelosi, self-described Catholic, will receive Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award….Margaret Sanger considered some races and skin colors to be “undesirable traits.”
And Because Right About Now We Need Someone Genuine and Real …
Our federal budget includes economic forecasts for each Fiscal Year out into the future. This is the projected GDP growth rate for each Fiscal Year, from 2009 through 2013 (Avg. forecast for 2013 3.9%) – Actual 1.9%. This is partially why there are over 91 million people removed from the labor market because no jobs are available.
If our nation continues to expand government spending, with sub-standard economic growth, something will have to give.
God Bless America – Pass This On!!
It’s gift-giving season. We’re all hustling out to buy gifts for our loved ones to show we care for them. Obama likes to think ObamaCare is a ‘gift’ to the American people but the American people say “not so much.” There is so much that’s wrong with this legislation and the hits keep coming. So Santa, if you’re reading this, Obama and the Democrats deserve lumps of coal this year. Descriptors are numerous: From the ‘Lie of the Year’ to Nancy Pelosi’s “embrace the suck” everyone knows by now how bad this is. (Pelosi was talking about the budget deal but seems appropriate for ObamaCare.) I’m in amazement that Obama’s approval isn’t 10%…but hey, that’s me.
Yet the Obama administration continues to spend OUR tax dollars promoting this fiasco, with campaigns like Pajama Boy. Then there’s this ad, from a group called Out2Enroll (Shaka to Karen):
No worries, though. Barack, family and countless BFFs are vacationing in sunny Hawaii yet again, making usually laid-back island residents unhappy. He even took the time while on his vaycay to sign up for the ObamaCare Bronze Plan – what a guy!!!!! Alas, things for Barry/Barack aren’t so hunky-dory in paradise. His bruddahs & sistas aren’t so enchanted with him anymore. This poll is from Saturday’s Honolulu Star Advertiser. It appears Barry and his entourage are wearing out their welcome.
This is my only comment about the Duck Dynasty controversy….
This will likely be my last post before the New Year. I wish all HDR readers much health and happiness during this Christmas and Holiday Season. I want to leave you with this….to remind us all what Christmas is really about. It’s my favorite Christmas song, “Silent Night.” The first video is Christina Aguilera in 1991 – as a young girl – before she became a superstar . The second is her rendition a few years later. And the third is a tribute to our troops (Shaka to Susie.)
God Bless America, and Merry Christmas.
