Math is not Speaker Pelosi’s strong point

February 5, 2009

Listen carefully to what she says.

In case you missed it, here is the money quote:

“Every month we do not have an economic recovery package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.”

Let us review the total population of the United States of America: 305 million

The math here isn’t hard. It’s flat out impossible for 500 million Americans to lose their jobs every month!

Either the Speaker of the House of Representatives, third in line for the President’s office, really is dumber than soap, or she is engaging in blatant fear mongering of the worst sort.

democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi:
Dumb as Soap
Both free polls

Fighting in the leftist ranks

February 4, 2009

It seems that it is not all harmony, rainbows, and unicorns inside the democrat party.
First, from the Hill:

A group of more than 50 House Democrats has penned a letter to Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) imploring him to “restore this institution” and see that the House returns to a “regular order” process of legislating.

The letter, signed by a large number of the conservative Blue Dog Coalition and the centrist New Democratic Coalition, has not yet been sent. Members are still gathering signatures in an effort to send the strongest signal possible to all top House Democrats that the caucus is up in arms over the top-down method of legislating employed by Democrats since late last year.

It seems that all democrats are not thrilled with the iron fisted rule of Speaker Pelosi.

Then there is this from Politico:

Rep. Jim Cooper (D-TN) — one of the lead Blue Dogs — made a startling admission to lefty Liberadio on Sunday, suggesting the White House quietly encouraged him to buck House leadership on the stimulus.

Cooper was one of 11 Dems to vote no — joining every GOP House member.

“Well, I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but I actually got some quiet encouragement from the Obama folks for what I’m doing,” said Cooper, one of about 55 House Democrats to sign a letter criticizing Speaker Nancy Pelosi for suspending normal debate and committee rules on the $819 billion package.

Say what you want about our Dear Leader, but he is smart fellow and very savvy politically. He understands that Pelosi is a greater threat to him than the Republican party at this point.

I question the timing

January 29, 2009

As I pointed out, about two thirds of the democrats so called “stimulus” package will not be spent until after 2010.

Now our Dear Leader is telling us over and over again that we need to act quickly on this crisis, so quickly that the members of congress can’t read the nearly 500 page bill packed with liberal pork he wants them to vote on right away.

If we must act fast, why is only 8% of that nearly one trillion dollars being spent in 2009?

The answer is clear. The timing is based on politics, not the needs of the American people. The democrats just won an election, they don’t see any great need to spend money right away. In fact, the worse things get for average Americans, the better it is for democrats.

Spending kicks up in 2010, just in time for the 2010 mid term elections. Incumbent democrats can point to all the pork in the bill going to their districts as a reason why they should reelected. The bulk of the money starts getting spent in 2011 and 2012. Just in time for our Dear Leader to claim credit while his reelection campaign is in full swing.

So, yes, I question the timing of the democrats pork bill.

In the good news department…

December 8, 2008

The good people of Louisiana have done what Nancy Pelosi didn’t have the guts to do.
They threw democrat William “Cold Cash” Jefferson out of office.

Republican Anh “Joseph” Cao defeated democrat Jefferson in a recent election.

Remember that the FBI found $90,000, in cash, in Jefferson’s freezer. This is after a an informant told the FBI that he had given Jefferson $100,000, in cash, as a bribe.

Cao, who emigrated to the United States in 1975 from Saigon, is the first Vietnamese-American to win a seat in Congress.

Louisiana is becoming a hotbed of diversity. Their Governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, is the only American of Indian (not American Indian) decent to hold a governor’s seat.

Who is Pelosi protecting?

October 1, 2008

Nancy Pelosi will block any investigation into the truth.

“Further, according to House Oversight Committee staff, [House Democrat Conference chair Rahm] Emanuel has received assurances from Pelosi that she will not allow what he termed a “witch hunt” to take place during the next Congressional session over the role Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac played in the economic crisis.

Emanuel apparently is concerned the roles former Clinton Administration members may have played in the mortgage industry collapse could be politically — or worse, if the Department of Justice had its way, legally — treacherous for many.”

Nancy Pelosi killed the bailout

September 29, 2008

She is the Speaker of the House. Head of the Majority party in the House.
The bailout bill could have passed if every single Republican in the House voted against it.

The bill was killed by the 95 democrats who voted against it.

This is a clear example of why congressional approval ratings are the lowest of all times.

democrat Nancy Pelosi is the Worst. Speaker. Ever.

Given the hyper-partisan speech she gave earlier today, it makes one wonder if she didn’t want the bill to fail.

Update: It’s official. The so-called “leader” of the democrats in the House, Nancy Pelosi wanted the bill to fail.

What is really interesting is that while the bill was under discussion on the floor of the house, a democrat leader was on NPR saying how the democrats would use the failure of the bill against the Republicans in the upcoming elections. Yup, it looks more and more like the democrats were planning on screwing over the American people to make political points.

Follow the Money!

August 14, 2008

As the man who wrote the screenplay said, “Follow the Money.”
In this case, the trail leads to the stink of corruption and democrat so-called “leader” Nancy “SanFran Nan” Pelosi.

By way of Absinthe & Cookies, comes this story of corruption and greed.

Under pressure from federal lawmakers concerned about high energy prices, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission proposed a rule prohibiting petroleum-market manipulation, giving the agency authority to levy fines of up to $1 million per violation a day.

Pelosi, who owns stock in CLNE, a company founded by T Boon Pickens and LIBERAL activist WR Hambrecht, stands to make MILLIONS on an $50,000 to $100,000 investment which may include anywhere from 3,000 to 22,000 shares, depending on the price she paid

Here is what is irrefutable. The company is valued at $632 MILL but if it succeed in its Proposition 10 proposal for California, it would increase its value at least tenfold and if the Pickens Plan, which calls for hundreds of BILLIONS of dollars, goes through its value could be increased a hundredfold!

Pelosi’s manipulation of the market is of a most decisive kind, she is using the excuse of “saving the planet” to refuse to allow the market, and not a central panning committee or government, to determine what kind of energy is produced where

Nancy Pelosi has a twitter account.

She follows no one.

She’ll tell you what to think.

Sunday Morning Talk Shows

August 3, 2008

Former democrat operative George Swaythepopulas gave democrat Speaker of the House “San Fran Nan” Pelosi (Worst. Speaker. Ever.) free rein to spout her talking points.

Meet the Press had Senator Lieberman (moderate, sane democrat and McCain supporter) debating Senator John Kerry (far left democrat billionaire who only pays federal tax at a 12% rate, and Barak H. Obama supporter).

Update: democrat Tom Daschle, a major Obama supporter, is on Fox News Sunday. Daschle is a lying weasel. He always has been, always will be. Daschle lies boldly and with a straight face. The truth is not part of that man’s genetic makeup.

The lone Right of Center member of the Meet the Press round table made a what is probably a highly accurate prediction. He predicted that Hillary Clinton will make a good speech at the DNC, not a great speech, but a good speech. Then, in November, she will vote for John McCain.
That does make sense based on her over riding goal to take control of the White House. Her best bet to inflict her socialist policies on America is to run in 2012. She needs Senator John McCain to win in 2008 for that to happen.

Check the temperature in Satan’s summer cottage. Juan Williams is agreeing with Bill Kristol on how Obama screwed the pooch by repeatedly playing the race card.
