Sen. Chuck Schumer’s Petty Priorities

schumer2

Chuck Schumer is at the top of the list of Senate democrats that could possibly replace retiring Sen. Harry Reid as democrat leader.

Nick Gillespie @ Reason has complied a list of Schumer’s most trivial wastes of time and tax dollars as an US Senator, almost all of them none of his or the federal government’s/Congress’s damn business…

Nothing is really un-important or insignificant to these people if it means grabbing more taxpayer money and more power they are NOT entitled to have.

While the list shows just a sampling of Schumer’s, and Congress’s, insane overreach it is more these types of actions that continually worry me, and should worry American’s in general:

This was the presidential election year and the democrat party and the MSM were trying hard to ruin economic news in the waning days of the Bush administration on the heels of the Fanny/Freddie housing bubble burst that itself was a democrat construct…

Things such as these should give the American people, and serious voters, great pause that our elected officials would use such measures for their own political purposes and gain. Remember, as you read Schumer’s list and possibly google the idiotic measures of other democrat Congress members, that these are the people now insisting Hillary Clinton’s wiping clean of her own server of emails is nothing, and neither is Benghazi, “Fast and Furious”, the IRS targeting of conservative Americans/groups, etc.

Hillary Clinton Scrubbed Her Server Clean of ALL Emails AFTER Congress Asked for Them

delete hillary

Clinton lawyer David Kendall testified on Friday to a congressional committee that all the emails from her private server account she used while Secretary of State are all deleted…

After her representatives determined which emails were government-related and which were private, a setting on the account was changed to retain only emails sent in the previous 60 days, her lawyer, David Kendall, said. He said the setting was altered after she gave the records to the government.

“Thus, there are no hdr22@clintonemail.com emails from Secretary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state on the server for any review, even if such review were appropriate or legally authorized,” Mr. Kendall said in a letter to the House select committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

The committee subpoenaed the server this month, asking Mrs. Clinton to hand it over to a third party so it could determine which emails were personal and which were government records.

At a news conference this month, Mrs. Clinton appeared to provide two answers about whether she still had copies of her emails. First, she said that she “chose not to keep” her private personal emails after her lawyers had examined the account and determined on their own which ones were personal and which were State Department records. But later, she said that the server, which contained personal communication by her and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, “will remain private.” The server was kept at their home in Chappaqua, N.Y., which is protected around the clock by the Secret Service.

Mrs. Clinton’s disclosure on Friday only heightened suspicions by the committee’s chairman, Representative Trey Gowdy, Republican of South Carolina, about how she handled her emails, and it is likely to lead to more tension between her and the committee.

Mr. Gowdy said in a written statement that it appeared that Mrs. Clinton deleted the emails after Oct. 28, when the State Department first asked her to turn over emails that were government records.

“Not only was the secretary the sole arbiter of what was a public record, she also summarily decided to delete all emails from her server, ensuring no one could check behind her analysis in the public interest,” Mr. Gowdy said.

Mrs. Clinton’s “unprecedented email arrangement with herself and her decision nearly two years after she left office to permanently delete all emails” had deprived Americans of a full record of her time in office, he added.

Mr. Gowdy said that Mrs. Clinton would have to answer questions from Congress about her decision, but he did not say whether that would be at a hearing or a private interview.

Sen. Harry Reid Will Not Seek Re-election…

curly bill

Reid, who recently had an alleged nasty run-in with some exercise equipment but says his pending retirement it is not for medical reasons, has less than two years left in his term and hints at making them antagonistic in the Senate as he and Obama wrap-up their destruction of the nation in this cryptic message to the republican leadership:

“My friend, Senator McConnell, don’t be too elated. I’m going to be here for twenty-two months.”

Reid has made a lifetime career in the US Congress, far outside the intentions of the FounDING Fathers…

First elected to the Senate in 1986, Reid previously served in the House. He has endured tough re-election battles in 1998, 2004 and most recently 2010 — against Tea Party-backed candidate Sharron Angle.

Among other decisions, Reid will be remembered for allowing the so-called “nuclear option” in late 2013, where he unilaterally moved to change Senate rules to allow a simple majority vote to overcome filibusters for certain nominations. While procedural, the change was significant because it meant the Senate no longer needed the usual 60 votes to advance on controversial nominations.

Republicans quickly gloated that his seat would be a prime pickup opportunity in 2016. GOP figures ranging from Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval to Rep. Joe Heck and others could be interested.

Harry Reid’s eventual leaving the US Senate will have other too-long-in-office “Progressive” democrat senators battling for that vacated leadership position.

Hillary’s Brownshirts: Pro-HRC Group Issues Word Ban List to NY Times Reporter(s)

hillary wink

They forgot “deleter”, “liar”, “full of sh*t”, “cigar box”…

The fact that they are even doing this and specifying words points out their very own sexism, exactly the way the left/MSM has, for the last 7 years, designated words as “racist” dog-whistles, especially when referencing Barack Obama…

(The Daily Caller) – […]

“We will be watching, reading, listening and protesting coded sexism,” the pro-Hillary group HRC Super Volunteers warned The New York Times’ Amy Chozick Wednesday.

[…]

Here are the words that you can’t use to describe Clinton:

polarizing

[…]

calculating

[…]

disingenuous

[…]

insincere

[…]

ambitious

[…]

inevitable

[…]

entitled

[…]

over confident

[…]

secretive

[…]

“will do anything to win”

[…]

“represents the past”

[…]

“out of touch”

[…]

Now, imagine the “free speech” that will be banned should their Hillary Clinton, God forbid, be elected as POTUS.

Can some reporter please ask Hillary Clinton what she thinks about this word-banning threat on the media?

Above The Law: The Eleanor Holmes Norton ‘Parking’ Video is Not Funny

First of all, can you imagine the MSM and the talking-heads were this a republican pol?

This is democrat Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton.

The fact that this woman is a senior citizen is not the point, unless she is tested for any sight … or mental disorder or deterioration(s) aside from her ultra-liberal “Progressive” nature. There are plenty of seniors out there driving far better than most of the 16-20 something year olds.

The point is she is too short-sided and arrogant to see and understand that she is going in the wrong direction down that lane to be able to pull into that parking spot between those two cars.

According to the video dialog she repeats her maneuvering mistakes over and over on every failed try, actually contacting the red vehicle to the right of the video. When she finally puts her car in ‘park’ and leaves it, her vehicle is not positioned properly inside the designated parking lines. Said red vehicle beside hers will have a major, and probably impossible, problem backing out of their own parking space to leave because the driver’s ass-end of Norton’s f***ing car is in the way.

That being bad enough, she does not bother to even call the police (a useless Capitol cop just cruising past her in the video) or, at the very least, leave a note with her contact and auto insurance information on the vehicle’s windshield. She just walks away, only returning to her car a second later for something she forgot inside.

And this woman is just one of those sitting comfortably on our dime, for life, in the U.S. Congress making more and more power-grabbing decisions on our money and our lives…

(Roll Call) – … A HOH tipster watched in horror Wednesday as the D.C. delegate, 77, awkwardly forced her way into a wide-open spot in the carefully controlled corridor of New Jersey Avenue Southeast sandwiched between the Longworth and Cannon House Office buildings.

[…]

Per our tipster, Norton performed the sub-par squeeze-in around the same time the rest of her colleagues were crowding into the House chamber to hear the joint address by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.

At around the 40-second mark, an oblivious U.S. Capitol Police officer appears to zoom by on a motorcycle, right past the textbook parking offense.

Once the aide seen assisting Norton from outside the slow-moving vehicle finishes waving her into clearly disastrous position, Norton emerges from the car, clicks her remote-locking device (better safe than sorry) and starts to walk away.

Then, all of the sudden, she doubles back.

Has her conscience gotten the best of her? Is she going to slide a quickly composed apology onto the now-stuck truck’s windshield? Or perhaps a business card?

Nope.

Norton simply retrieves some forgotten item from inside the car and then heads on her merry way.

Our spy estimates the entire head-scratching episode lasted about half an hour, including the painful insertion process and her 20-minute jaunt into Cannon.

Once done with her business, the tipster said Norton backed out of the space and rolled out onto the unsuspecting District streets.

[…]

Norton’s office claims the red vehicle belonged to one of their staffers, and that no damage was done.

Oh, sure … after this video started hitting the interwebs yesterday.

Ten Months Later U.S. Army Finally Charges Bowe Bergdahl with Desertion

bowe2

Ten months ago Obama made the significant prisoner swap with 5 high target Taliban terrorist leaders from Gitmo for Bowe Bergdahl…

gitmo

parents

… and then surrounded himself with Bergdahl’s parents in the White House Rose Garden to celebrate Burgdahl’s return.

Since then atleast 3 of the 5 released are reaching out to the jihadist movement.

Today the U.S Army finally formally announced they have charged Burgdahl with desertion.

As you might imagine the Obama and administration sycophants in the MSM are not too eager to have this poor, poor, misunderstood child of Islamic sympathizing hippies serve any time for leaving his Army post and getting several fellow soldiers killed looking for his ass

Project Veritas Exposes Cornell University Dean saying He would Invite “ISIS ‘freedom fighter’ to Conduct a ‘Training Camp’ for Students”

More @ the NYPost

Cornell brass responded to a Post inquiry made to Scaffido.

“Cornell fully supports the free exchange of ideas and does not review or control the political ideology of our students. We do not, of course, tolerate unlawful advocacy of violence, and the comment about training by ISIS freedom fighters does not reflect university policy,” said Joel Malina, Cornell’s vice president for university relations.

A Facebook follow of mine, Jeffrey Varasano, puts this all into chilling perspective…

“Communists have used propaganda to redefine anything that is not collectivist as evil. By spending decades harping on the sins of racism and by demonizing ‘privilege’ they’ve now come to the point that all individualism is evil. All choices are evil. If you are not in the prefered group of collectivists, even the simple choice of choosing to want to exist can now be claimed to be evil. You want to live? That proves your evil. By preferring your own life over the lives of your murderers, you are evil. Just ask Netanyahu. Therefore voting itself, other than for collectivism or for suicide, can now be deemed evil. So why vote all, since there is always only 1 non-evil choice? This is the logical result of Multicultural ideology. This is communist propaganda at its finest.

Take this mindless nut [above] for example… and read the idiotic last paragraph, which is Cornell’s official response. They are bumping up against the paradox of their own looney ideology. They can’t condone violence, because they are pacifist and for all people. But they can’t oppose violent ISIS because that would be against multiculturalism. They can’t acknowledge that ISIS is evil because that would be discrimination and therefore racist and evil. They literally can’t even oppose people setting up a camp in their midst to train to kill them. Opposing the Ground Zero Mosque, preventing Iran from getting the Bomb, controlling the border, Israelis voting for themselves, etc. All of these things are evil because you can’t prefer you. You must prefer others. Just as in Marxism, you can’t prefer your own money or family. You must prefer the state and the collective. In Mao’s day you had a number because you couldn’t prefer your own name.

Racism theory is just being used as another branch of Marxism. And effectively so. These Cornell administrators are so deep in it, they can’t even see it. You can almost see them squirm as they try to craft a paragraph that remains compliant with all their ideological paradoxes.”

Yemen: The Chaos That is the Obama Administration’s “Model of Success”

R Peters

You see, we are looking at these news stories coming out of the Muslim region of the world as losses, wreckage, and failures.

In September of last year Barack Obama touted Yemen as a model of success.

Since then our embassy personal bugged out, and shortly after the U.S. military hastily yanked our Marines out, leaving behind a treasure trove of weaponry and vehicles for the advancing “rebels” in Yemen.

Via Drudge Report here are some of the headlines to give you the tone and atmosphere of this “model of success” Yemen since Obama’s claim, and our personal fleeing the country:

President flees country by boat as rebels advance…

Air base used by American troops attacked…

Saudis build up forces on border…

Crashing drones spilling secrets about U.S. military ops…

This is White House Press Sec. Earnest, just this past Monday, backing Obama’s “success” claim when asked by the press:

This is WH Press Sec. Earnest when asked again today about the Yemen “success” as the news of chaos rolls out of the fallen country:

I guess it all depends on what your intended definition of “success” is, you know…

ObamaCare: White House Press Secretary Pulls an Unproven and Bogus Figure Out of His Rear

josh

The bald-face lies just never end with these people…

Via Laura Ingraham (video)

(The Daily Surge) – During the White House press briefing Monday, Obama press secretary Josh Earnest rattled off several “accomplishments” he says Obamacare is responsible for.

The most ridiculous Obamacare “achievement” Earnest mentioned was number 3: “50,000,” which Earnest says, represents “the number of deaths that have been prevented due to the improvements in the quality of care at hospitals.”

It’s amazing, and yet not at all surprising, that even after the Obama administration was busted for boosting Obamacare enrollment numbers with dental plans, they are trying to use suspect data to celebrate good news about this mind-bogglingly bad law.

U.S. DHS Secretary: The Koran Reminds Him of “Quintessentially American Values”

Seriously? In what dimension of space and time???

Between this sort of completely made-up bullshit of various Obama administration officials and mouthpieces, and Obama himself lying and attributing basic founding and building “fabric” of American history on Muslims, we are living in the Obama fictional universe only a person who is heavily medicated in a padded cell lives in.

Jeh Johnson is in charge of this nation’s and her citizens’ safety and security. As with the White House and other members of this administration within federal government departments/agencies it has become all about appeasing and coddling and apologizing for the Muslims!

There is nothing within the pages of the Koran that even remotely syncs with America within our limited paged founding documents and our values as a people. This was a purely insane comment for this man to make in his pandering to a community in this country that has basically laid silent since September 11, 2001 to the horrors and atrocities done and being done in the name of their religion/faith.

Via Twitchy:

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson was honored by the Muslim Public Affairs Council last week for “for his dedication to and personal investment in engagement with Muslim American communities across the United States” and this happened during his post-award remarks:

[…]

And for a little bit of background on the Muslim Public Affairs Council, here’s a great piece Andy McCarthy wrote for NRO back in 2012. An excerpt:

Established in 1988 by followers of the Muslim Brotherhood and admirers of Hezbollah, MPAC styles itself a “moderate, inclusive and forward-thinking organization with a history of fostering a strong Muslim American identity, and combating terrorism and extremism.” In reality, MPAC is yet another Islamist wolf in the “social justice” clothing of the hard Left. Its founders include Hassan Hathout, the former MPAC president who has described himself as “a close disciple” of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna. Hathout’s brother Maher, a senior MPAC adviser, is lavish in his praise of both Hezbollah’s “freedom fighting” and the social-justice pioneering of Hassan al-Turabi, the leader of Sudan’s National Islamic Front — the genocidal junta that gave safe haven to al-Qaeda in the early 1990s while imposing sharia on that war-torn east African nation.

However, the insult to our common sense and intellect did not end with DHS Sec. Jeh Johnson.

j street

While speaking the other day at an anti-Israel J Street gathering Obama’s White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough called for an “end of Israel’s fifty-year ‘occupation'” and echoed the Obama White House’s trashing and bashing of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu.

A reporter with even 1/2 a set of balls needs to pointedly demand of this administration exactly why they have become the self-appointed full-time defenders and saviors of the Muslim culture and Islamic religion, especially above and beyond their stated job of putting this country and her people on whole above anything/anyone else.

map room

Over 6 years later I am forced to ponder that second “Oath” Obama took on his first Inauguration Day in 2009 where nobody but his selected photographer was permitted to witness … and in the entirety of the White House claimed there was no Holy Bible to be found.

God help us…
