GOP Reaches For Panic Button

By The Reverend Published: April 25, 2015

U.S. Rep. Phil Roe (R-Tenn).....“I haven’t punched the panic button yet, but time is short and this is not something that we can discuss in a one-hour caucus and get buy-in on it,” he said. “We have two legislative weeks in May, and then boom, June will be on us.”

What happens in June? What is the "then boom" in reference to? The upcoming ruling in a truly historic WTF Supreme Court case microscopically examining grammatical syntax in one cherry-picked sentence of the Affordable Care Act. A case which, in saner times, would have never reached the Supreme Court.

The "argument" is over whether citizens of states who stubbornly refuse to set up their own insurance exchanges are eligible for federal subsidies should they sign up for health care insurance on the federal healthcare.gov exchange. The intent of the ACA is clear on this issue.....and no Republican on record thought otherwise until King v Burwell came along.

Previously, I mentioned that the one cynical move Chief Justice Roberts could take on the Burwell case is sending the ACA back to Congress for revision, where Roberts knows an all out knock-down, drag-out, no-holds-barred, frenzied battle would ensue....and just in time for the 2016 primary campaigns to ramp up.

Equal Justice Under The Law & Too Big To Jail

By The Reverend Published: April 24, 2015

Sharing highly sensitive classified material with your mistress....and then lying to federal officials about it when asked....if you are General David Petraeus....is but a misdemeanor punishable by a monetary fine.

David Petraeus, the retired four-star general leader who once commanded military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court to leaking classified information to his mistress and biographer, Paula Broadwell, and was sentenced to two years probation and fined $100,000.

The sentence did not include any prison time, but the fine was $60,000 higher than the tentative terms reached in a plea deal two months ago.

Petraeus is said to be worth $2 million, so, sure, $100K is a lot of money, but not so much that Petraeus will actually feel punishment.

Uraninum-Gate

By The Reverend Published: April 23, 2015

I've just read the latest Clinton hit-job in the "liberal" NY Times. Zzzzzz...

The story, and that's what it is, a story.....has already brought extra-excitement to the crazed conservatives in hate-media...but after having read this alleged "bombshell", I gotta say.....if crazed conservatives have been looking for a knock-out Hillary punch....this ain't it.

Here is the most important part.....

Some of the connections between Uranium One and the Clinton Foundation were unearthed by Peter Schweizer, a former fellow at the right-leaning Hoover Institution and author of the forthcoming book “Clinton Cash.” Mr. Schweizer provided a preview of material in the book to The Times, which scrutinized his information and built upon it with its own reporting.

GOP Big Top Peewee Circus Owners Holding Auditions

By The Reverend Published: April 23, 2015

The GOP Circus Owners have been holding auditions for this year's crop of Candidate Clown wannabes.

Silly GOP-primary Circus goers are anxious to get to those primary polling booths so they can pick a genuine Conservative Clown THIS TIME. But those silly Circus goers will have to wait another 9 months before GOP Primary Circus 2016 opens up those ballot boxes.

These Big Top Peewee voters still think THEY will choose who will drive the GOP Clown Bus to the Big Top cage match next fall. Silly GOP primary Circus goers....

Charles and David Koch are considering throwing their massive wealth and sophisticated organization into the Republican presidential primary for the first time, a potentially game-changing boost that could make even a second-tier candidate instantly viable.

How Long, O Lord, Must We Wait?

By The Reverend Published: April 22, 2015

Here's a bit more on today's Republican Party resembling a religious cult.

The following comparative metaphor may be an insult to some....but please, don't take it as a personal insult, it is not intended as such.

It is true that Christians who believe in the Apostle's Creed still believe in the 2nd coming of Jesus. But how long has it been since Christians believed this? Some 2 thousand years.

2 Peter, chapter 3.....

Is The GOP A Religious Cult?

By The Reverend Published: April 22, 2015

Four months ago....

The Washington, D.C., city council unanimously passed a bill Wednesday that would prohibit employers from discriminating against employees based on reproductive health decision-making—including the decision to terminate a pregnancy.

The D.C. bill stated....

.....an employer cannot discriminate in “compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment” because of an employee’s or a dependent’s “reproductive health decision making, including a decision to use or access a particular drug, device or medical service.”

Re-Polishing That Iraq Turd

By The Reverend Published: April 21, 2015

Like I've been explaining, Hillary's most formidable opponent in her pursuit for the White House will be "liberal" media".....

The New York Times, The Washington Post and Fox News have made exclusive agreements with a conservative author for early access to his opposition research on Hillary Clinton...

"Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich" will debut on May 5. But the Times, the Post and Fox have already made arrangements with author Peter Schweizer to pursue some of the material included in his book, which seeks to draw connections between Clinton Foundation donations and speaking fees and Hillary Clinton's actions as secretary of state.

While "liberal" media is pursuing a course to derail Hillary's quest for the presidency, over on the fabulist (a person who invents or relates fables) rightwing, a full revision of the Bush presidency as it relates to Iraq is underway.

America's Bad Case Of God Complex

By The Reverend Published: April 20, 2015

Despite the claims of neo-con war fanatics, the CIA and Israel's Mossad spy outfit have both determined that Iran is not pursuing nuclear weaponry and hasn't been for over a decade.

From the Mossad report.....

"Even though Iran has accumulated enough 5% enriched uranium for several bombs, and has enriched some of it to 20%; it does not appear to be ready to enrich it to higher levels. It is allocating some of it to produce nuclear fuel for the TRR, and the amount of 20% enriched uranium is therefore not increasing."

Despite claims by Bibi Netanyahu and U.S. warmongerers, there is still no evidence that Iran is pursuing a nuclear bomb.

Rand Paul Places Large Turd In GOP Punchbowl

By The Reverend Published: April 19, 2015

GOP Senator Rand Paul, aka the Fraud Clown, made it clear Saturday up in New Hampshire why Hillary Clinton should be the country's next president. Yes, Paul's domestic policy libertarianism is a total fraud.....but on foreign policy and U.S. military interventionism, Rand Paul has it mostly right.....

“There’s a group of folks in our party who would have troops in six countries right now — maybe more,” the Kentucky senator told hundreds of activists at a GOP cattle call that has drawn every major presidential aspirant. “This is something, if you watch closely, that will separate me from many other Republicans. The other Republicans will criticize Hillary Clinton and the president for their foreign policy, but they would have done the same thing – just 10 times over!”

 

That's the closest thing to the truth that you'll ever read coming from an elected Republican. The "group" in the GOP Rand Paul is referring to consists of people like Arkansas Goober, Senator Tom Cotton.....Senator John McGrampy, Senator Lindsey Graham, Senator Kelly Ayotte, Senator Marco Rubio, Representative Peter King, still unindicted former VP Dick Cheney, and former recess-appointed UN Ambassador John Bolton.....to name only a few.

Bringing The Fear....And The Stupid

By The Reverend Published: April 18, 2015

Many GOP Presidential Candidate Clowns are in New Hampshire this weekend. It always amazes me how so many pundits and talking heads get so excited over New Hampshire. Yes, New Hampshire is the first state on the calendar to hold a real primary, but honestly, so what? The state of New Hampshire has a grand total of FOUR electoral college votes.

Anyway, Boy-Marco gave the keynote speech last night to New Hampshire Republican "activists." Senator Rubio, according to this Politico writeup, intends to run on foreign policy concerns. Let's start with these two WTF lines, shall we...

Rubio is hoping that his focus on foreign policy since entering the Senate in 2011 will help differentiate him from the governors who are running for president. They often tout their executive experience, which Rubio lacks, but the senator believes he benefits from increasing public anxiety about world events.

So, Rubio plans on differentiating himself from the other 19, or so, GOP Candidate Clowns by focusing on his national security "experience" sitting on the Foreign Relations Committee....where fellow Clown Candidate, Rand Paul, also sits. But, you see, the Clown Party, for whatever reason, really, really like them there Clown Candidates who have "executive experience" as governors. Don't know why, they just do.
