Dysfunctional Resistance is New Normal

Let me try to explain the current family tree of politics. The left’s hallucination now is Mitch McConnell as the divider and culprit of the chaotic, abnormal state we are in.

Yeah, right. Try as they will. It would take a whole lot of wrongjuice to believe or accept that as fact. So here we go, allow me to paraphrase it as colorful as I can:

Abby and Normal eloped in Obama’s first term. Harry Reid officiated the wedding. That is the place where right became wrong and wrong became right, up became down and down became up. Unconstitutional became the rule of law. Dissent became a crime. We became a country governed by a man and political party, instead of the rule of law.

Abby and Norm are still on an extended honeymoon. No hope for annulment and it doesn’t look like a divorce will come anytime soon. Theirs is one marriage I wish would not last. And they seem to have enough distant relatives to make a lot of mischief.

It turns out, all it takes is a radical minority of hell bent miscreants to ruin functionality of the system. They have now perfected it. From the Justice of Peace to justice of chaos.

So even people on the left ask, “when will normal process be coming back?” They ask us? The culprits who encouraged Abby and Norm to hook up now blame their marriage on anyone else. But they cannot deny Abby and Norm are hitched. That fact doesn’t bother them. They incite all the effects and do everything possible to keep them happily together. Nothing is off limits for the Abnormals. The trick is to make everything normal’s fault.

Congressional Review Act, Thanks Harry

Law backed by Harry Reid will haunt Dems in 2017

By Susan Crabtree | 12/16/16

One of outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s greatest legislative achievements will come back to haunt Democrats early next year.

President-elect Trump has promised to repeal two federal regulations for every new one issued, and the Congressional Review Act, which Reid co-sponsored in 1996, will give him a running start.

The law gives Congress the power to rescind any unwelcome late, so-called “midnight” regulations from an outgoing president through a simple majority vote in both chambers of Congress.

Since its passage as part of House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America in 1996, it has only been successfully used once, but Republicans are promising to leverage its full power in January to kill rules the Obama administration has issued in its last months in office.

In his 77-minute farewell address on the Senate floor last week, Reid included the Congressional Review Act as one of his top accomplishments in the Senate, along with passage of Obamacare, the 2009 stimulus bill, a taxpayer bill of rights and several other measures

Republicans, with the help of the Congressional Research Service, have compiled a list of roughly 50 regulations they could go after early next year.

“I know some of my Democrat colleagues say, ‘Why did you do that?'” Reid said during his final speech on the Senate floor. “Here’s what I did. I worked with Republican Sen. Don Nickles from Oklahoma … Don and I talked about this. We knew that the administrations would change and it would affect every president, Democrat and Republican.”

Good old Harry left something worth something.

Fake News or Harry Reid’s news

Okay, let’s write some fake news. I mean I’m bored.

So Harry Reid complains the Russian hacking influenced the election throwing it to Trump. Right. Then he claimed that Comey single-handedly influenced the election results for Trump. Slap the certificate of authenticity on that. Both are true, to Reid.

Now this means that Russia, Putin’s hacks and Comey with the FBI in unison all worked together to get Trump elected. We are talking a huge conspiracy, fake news there. Plus, Hillary’s people at Harvard said the media helped get Trump elected. Media-Russia-FBI-Comey.

It doesn’t stop there, turns out Reid is also against fake news. Here is Harry Reid giving his retirement lecture speech. He lashed out at Fake News. (HuffPo)

“We’re entering a new Gilded Age. It has never been more important to be able to distinguish between what’s real and what is fake… We have media outlets pushing conspiracy theories disguised as news. Separating real from fake has never been more important.”

He cited Pope Francis to bolster his case: (but Hillary also railed against fake news)

“[The Pope]said yesterday, and this is a quote: ‘The media that focuses on scandals and spread fake news to smear politicians risk becoming like people who have a morbid fascination with excrement,’” Reid said.

Echoing that,

Hillary Clinton took the opposite tone, calling fake news “a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly.”

Then Reid went on to referrence George Orwell’s “1984” to make his case.

The king of fake news is very concerned about Fake News. It turns out that writing a report about Harry Reid and fake news is a good way to point out fake news. He brought in the Pope and George Orwell. Who is more creative than that? Any time you can use the Pope to help promote your conspiracies is a good day. Hillary, I found your culprit.

Hoopla over Russia and the election

Does anyone even care about the uranium theft that Bill Clinton and his friends engaged in with Russia? No investigation about that, no hearings over it.

But we need to have hearings on Russia involvement in our election. I wish they were half as fired up about the uranium deal. If they are going to be concerned about Russia, then how about trying to appear consistent?

Maybe some feigned outrage about the uranium is in order, at least, or all the other government hacks we had. Why aren’t they as concerned about that? Blaming Trump for all this is so childish it is pathetic. None of it would likely matter much if Hillary won. But she didn’t. Russian hacks have nothing over our political hacks around DC.

So the answer is to politicize the election process and the results, and then politicize the truth. Where was their cyber outrage before? Where was Obama’s concern?

Haven’t we yet realized what we are doing, with all this rhetoric about Russia, is handing them the influence they are seeking?

Then there is Harry Reid’s take on it.

“We know from reports we have seen from all of you guys,” [Harry Reid] said to CNN’s Manu Raju, “reports that people in the campaign for Donald Trump were in touch with the Russians. And now it is very clear.” – Real Clear Politics

Let the politicization go on at mach speed. What an idiot.

House Divided – 2: place your bets

[Pt #1]
Now leftist “progressives” want to cuckoofy anyone supporting traditions, values, founding principles, or our ability to speak up for them. Publicly or privately makes no difference. While those things are only reasonable to us, they turn even those ideas on their collective heads. So it’s a logical leap, to the left anyway, to plunge another step down the ladder to declare that any reluctance to support the LGBT agenda is either prejudiced or hate speech. Now they claim courage is best defined by Bruce Jenner in his sex change.

Never mind that for centuries we thought we knew how courage was defined. And dare you call courage something related to the military or war, or standing for freedom. Then the Left gets all bent out of shape at using the term courage toward soldiers. Use the term courage toward Chris Kyle, or American Sniper, and you get the ire of the left. How many other names or labels did they define him with?

Now it’s even gone another step lower on the integrity scale, to endorsing a field trip to a sex shop for middle school students. They will probably define that as a courageous stand — and no apology needed. Who do those parents think they are? What’s it to them?

A while back a public school teacher was compelled to apologize for having 5th grade kids send get well cards to a convicted cop killer in prison, and filling them in on his circumstances. But when she made her “apology,” people in the crowd yelled “you have nothing to apologize for”. Is that not revealing? Another thing to call courageous. People cannot even be outraged about that without getting attacked for their outrage.

But if you want to make a statement against police or call an entire police department or city “structurally racist,” be their guest and you’re applauded. No proof needed… surely you cannot deny it is. But when a Christian family criticizes leaking sealed reports about two under age victims for political purposes, then you are the bigot for complaining. The world, it seems, has been reversed and cranked to mach speed.

I posted an old report on Harry Reid taking an anti-illegal immigration stand in the early 90’s. Well, it seems hypocritical enough alone. But in the rhetoric Reid used lies the disturbing truth. Back then what Harry Reid was pushing in his bill was called “immigration reform”. He also took issue with the anchor baby policy. However, as evidenced in the last several years, the term immigration reform has been spun around to apply toward amnesty supporting illegal immigration, even open borders. See how the term changed? Democrats and Republicans are both guilty of the redefinition.

It turns out that things have reversed even in the past 20 years. So what was then considered “immigration reform” is now: “straight up racism. We want amnesty NOW!!! (and the votes that come with it) Borders are for bigots!” What happened? Anyone that can deny the change just isn’t living in this country.

Today doing something unconstitutional rallies applause. Calling a branch of government obsolete and irrelevant is in vogue. People demand more executive orders. Attack the Supreme Court in a SOTU address, bonus points and turn the attack into a campaign fundraiser. Years ago a national police would have been protested. Today progressives and activists demand the federal government take over the local police departments.

Take issue with the death of one person by cops and hold rallies in cities; shut down bridges, roads, traffic, or shopping centers at peak holidays. Hold marches chanting death to cops. Complain about police departments and politicize them. We saw how it works. Have mayors and officials tell cops to stand down while crowds loot and riot. Then ask the government for money to pay for damages. Tell store owners they should shut down and abandon their property. Pay for the political policies of leaders with the property of private store owners. Must be some form of reparations for slavery or something. Meanwhile, the slavery we are seeing is from thugs in the streets. HANDS UP…DON’T LOOT!

Finally, a stand-up comedian with a great reputation says the college campuses are too politicized, or politically correct, for his jokes. Yet an elitist political creature of Washington is paid 250,000 dollars to speak at Universities. No one bats an eye at that. Obama ran his campaign from Universities. The same colleges and Universities declare people speaking about Human Rights abuses are way too controversial for campuses and called trigger warnings. Organized anti-Semitic groups petition Universities to boycott Israeli students — persona non grata.

Protest a man be thrown out of Mozzila because he happens to hold traditional personal beliefs. A pizzeria makes a theoretical statement to not cater a fictional same-sex wedding and activists want it shut down, and threaten its owners. Don’t bake a cake for gay couple and you are shut down, hauled to court, threatened and defamed. Give to certain groups or try to support causes you agree with and you’re singled out if not by radicals as a bigot, potentially by a radicalized IRS. Sell the wrong legal merchandise in your store the government doesn’t like, wham you have big problems.

Try to start a 501-c3 to educate people and be attacked by mountains of regulations with bureaucrats from every alphabet agency of Government, which would make King George blush. Then the federal government seizes entire business accounts because it does not like your business. So do you ever hear liberals and progressives complain about these abuses or actions? You already know.

This is just a short list of examples. All have something in common. What once might have been taboo, perverse, abuse, harassment is now standard protocol. Want justice? Yea, they’ve sort of redefined that to proving your innocence first. King George would have been elated and rolling on the floor.

So the progressive left has big problems with people wanting to have some pride in our country and the rule of law, or its founding documents?

Sorry, I needed a new word – cuckoofy, I like it.

Where oh where has Dirty ol’ Harry gone?

Mark Levin reads an old op-ed that will make your hair curl.
We aren’t in Kansas any more. (May 2014)

This was reported around May 2014. Harry Reid rammed (S.744) the aka immigration bill through the Senate in 2013. Look at Harry Reid over 20 years completely abandoning common sense. A spineless lizard slithering around the Capitol. He seems to be a schizophrenic on top of it.

The lady sings the blues

‘Too close to call’ was not the verdict for leadership in Congress.

Said outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, ” The message from voters is clear: They want us to work together.”

Dingy Harry could assume such nonsense after being obstructionist-in-chief. Only he can read those tea leaves.

Maryland and Massachusetts went to Republican governors. Republican Bruce Rauner won in Illinois and Quinn would not concede defeat. “We will never yield until all the votes are in,” Quinn said

[AOL] After years of a sluggish economic recovery and foreign crises aplenty, the voters’ mood was sour.

Nearly two-thirds of voters interviewed after casting ballots said the country was seriously on the wrong track. Only about 30 percent said it was generally going in the right direction.

Someone send out a search party because 30% of the electorate are seriously lost.

And Kay Hagan lost. Oh my, those testy voters.

Standup standoff ends with backoff ploy

Federal SWAT Team Backs Down In Armed Standoff With Militia, Will Return Cattle

Patrick Brown — April 12, 2014 | Western Journalism

After an announcement (Watch Video) by Clark County Sheriff  Douglas C. Gillespie that BLM officials would back down from their seizure of Cliven Bundy’s cattle, a tense standoff with protesters still was taking place as late as 1pm PST. That armed standoff, however, has been resolved.

According to Brandon Darby of Breitbart news, a Federal SWAT Team has agreed to retreat from a tension ridden stand-off with protesters.

1:01pm Pacific – “It was strange to see armed ranchers and militias stand off against a federal SWAT team under a bridge in a desert wash,” Darby said. “After a few tense moments, the feds agreed to retreat and allow the ranchers and the militia to guide the remaining cattle back to tracts of land used by the Bundy ranch. Both sides were demanding the other disarm first. Both the ranchers and law enforcement refused; ultimately the federal agents began to walk backwards behind retreating vehicles and leave the area.

The Bundy family has also been informed that their cattle will be returned.

…they allowed a member of the Bundy family to travel a half-mile back beyond the conflict area and to see the family’s cattle. The family member returned and made the announcement that the family would receive the remaining heads of cattle and he requested that the ranchers and militia help corral and guide the cattle back.”

Here is a recent image tweet from the standoff area:

As Brandon Darby describes, it was a very tense standoff between armed militia and the Federal SWAT team, with each side demanding that the other disarm.

Last night, WesternJournalism released a email petition tool for individuals to send emails to BLM officials. As of the time of this writing, more than 8000 individuals have used this tool to petition BLM officials to end this standoff peaceably.

H/T to Dave

Protesters at Cliven Bundy’s ranch in Nevada faced off with federal agents this past weekend, sending the message that overreaching government power can be resisted.

The ranch protesters had a clear message: This is not about cattle. “People are getting tired of the federal government having unlimited power,” Bundy’s wife Carol told ABC News – including the power to push your cattle off land where they’ve grazed for over 140 years.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/04/15/Standoff-at-Nevada-Ranch-Americas-Ready-to-Resist

How far is all this from the grimy hands of Harry Reid? Sources close to BLM say that the backoff could be just a ploy for a planned raid of the ranch. Dubious Harry saying “it’s not over” seems to confirm that.

Democrats always seem to support civil disobedience, don’t they? They could not defend the dragged-out dispute in Wisconsin enough. Progressives recommend it, speaking truth to power. They support union strikes. They support enviro-wackos. To say nothing of supporting a Radical-in-chief in the White House or his renegade actions. (Obama even said he’d put on his shoes to march with strikers.) But they never seem to defend private property, as evidenced from the Kelo decision. However, they salute civil disobedience from teachers to gay marriage to spotted owls. And they don’t even protest rampant abuses by the IRS.

Reid’s Koch-a-phobia running wild

 

DSCC to Combat Koch Contributions Using Unnamed Dem Donors

BY: Washington Free Beacon Staff
April 11, 2014 3:29 pm

The Democratic Party’s Senate campaign arm is warning donors about the pernicious influence of the Koch Brothers, and offering to match contributions—using money from unnamed Democratic donors—to combat them.

Campaign literature from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee features Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) ranting against the Kochs for four pages.

Reid pledges that the DSCC will match all contributions made in response to the solicitation.

He did not say which of the DSCC’s shadowy donors would be providing the matching funds.

 

Harry Reid said in a fund raising letter to Democrats:

“In fact, Koch Brothers AFP has already spent a staggering 27 million this election cycle alone on television ads – and this early spending has sent Senate Democrats’ approval ratings plummeting.

We simply cannot allow them to buy our Democracy.“

What sent their approvals plummeting to the depths was their record and non-accountable actions. He wants to blame the Koch’s for that? People are fed up. He says it is a matter of fact. More twisted lies from Harry-the Judas-Reid. How much are those shekels of silver worth, Harry?

Secondly, what people cannot allow is Harry and his colleagues to continue to hold the country hostage to their precious power.

He will feel so much better after election, in a smaller office without all those concerns .

All Harry and his cohorts care about is their political power slipping through their evil fingers, nothing else. For Americans, the question is not what Harry and company have done for you but what they have done to you that matters.

Harry Reid: liar extraordinaire

[photo: Nice Deb]

Hary Reid – prince of darkness award

Prince Harry has been running his mouth about how the house won’t act on the looming crisis, as if he was standing there waiting for any response from them. He claimed he was just trying to find solutions to the cliff crisis. Then, as Sunday rolled around, he said he did not have a counter offer to Republicans.

He revealed the truth, he has no interest in negotiating. (negotiation is a foreign word to Prince Harry) They want what they want and that’s it. He accused Republicans of having a dictatorship in the House. He then reverted to the second lieutenant of darkness, Gaffes Biden. But Harry will stand willing to hold the vote for the Overlord of Darkness, Barack Hussein Obama, on his phony non-plan at the last minute – just as planned. The dark forces unite in their kingdom of evil.

As we knew, more tax money — or “revenue” as they like to call it — only means more new spending to them. And no matter how much more they get, they will spend even more. Just what most people feared. Nothing changes in the District of Corruption. All Reid’s pre-game talk was only that, demagoguery.

He made no move to do a budget since Obama was elected, and he hasn’t changed his arrogantly stubborn mind since. He holds the entire government and political process hostage to his dictatorship. He’s nothing but a tool of the evil I was talking about. Sure, there are other greater and lesser actors in this evil. But Reid earned his ‘evil button’.

Everyone should be sick to death of this liar and propagandist. But somewhere he still has allies, the like-minded Marxists. Why should one man have the ability to sabotage our entire Congress? Yet to Harry, his biggest problem is eliminating dissent and any opposition.

Harry is Satan’s point man in the Capitol.
