Gorsuch Confirmed 54-45, Chuck Schumer Hardest Hit

Gorsuch confirmed…this is not exactly breaking news, is it? In fact, he's getting sworn in today at the White House. But, I saw this over at Polination, and the numbers struck me.
A) “Joe Donnelly (IN), Heidi Heitcamp (ND) and Joe Manchin (WV)”
Q) Name three Democrats up for reelection, in states that voted heavily for Trump.
Fifty-one would have been a bare majority. Gorsuch passed with three to spare. Three Democrats voted to confirm…Hmm. A bandwagon, perhaps??

One of the dirty little secrets of politics, is the ability of Congress Critters to cast a vote in such a manner so as to bamboozle, to use our former president's favorite word, one's constituents in order to deceive them, as you fleece them of their votes. First, is there any one among us who believes that if the vote were say, forty nine to forty nine that any of these three would have cast a deciding vote to put a conservative on the Supreme Court and risk the wrath of their party to do so? I don't think so.

Each party in the Senate and House have a Majority and Minority "Whip". The whip is responsible for counting votes and making sure that the party faithful follow the party line, or face the consequences. With just one exception, that is, hot button issues in an election year. We've seen this in the past.

SJW Trek: “Resistance”

The Democrat party reminds me quite a lot of the Borg. It is made up of many disparate and sometimes competing factions, assimilated by a liberal hive mind, animating their every move.
I won’t say “soulless”. You could, though!

Ending Gun Violence at the DNC

The DNC, (Disarm Normal Citizens), is taking a pretty firm stand on gun control, despite the fact that it is typically a losing issue for Damnocrats. In order to pander for black votes, er, illustrate the problem, they brought in the Mamas of some notorious victims of “gun violence”. In order to make their efforts more successful, I am passing along a few surefire tips on how to reduce gun crime and violence:
1) Mamas, teach your children not to take stuff that does not belong to them. Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin might both be alive today if they had only learned that one. 
2) Mamas, don’t get pregnant by any man not willing to marry you and support your kids. A two parent family will provide stability, a male role model and discipline to help keep young men out of gangs. 
3) Mamas, ask your children if it is fair to slap them every time the kid down the block does something wrong? Then explain to them, that killing some policemen at random, because you believe some other policeman, somewhere else, did something wrong, is about as moral as being a member of the Ku Klux Klan. 
4) Mamas, teach your babies that to study hard, demonstrate intelligence and work hard in school is not “acting white”. There are a great multitude of stupid white people in the world. They should not be your role models. George Washington Carver and Condileeza Rice are and were smarter than 98% of the white people I know and neither one of them had to “act white”. Say it loud, I’m smart, black and I’m proud! 
5) Mamas, teach your children, whatever race, color or creed they are, that no one owes them a living. If you adopt a victim mentality, you will always be a “victim”. You may never have all the money, fame and toys of a rap star or an NFL player, but that’s true about everybody. Make the best you can out of what you’ve got.
Add in a heaping helping of “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”, and I think you have a formula for reducing gun violence in the hood,  the inner city and across America.

Or you could just blame guns and the damn police…

The “New” Face of the Democratic Party Redux

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The upcoming promised and long overdue retirement of the ancient and crumbling Barbara Bouncer (D-Calcified), got me to thinking about a piece I originally wrote in 2006 about the "new face" of the Democrat party. A few of the old souls have passed away, so I thought I'd give a quick update to the ruling class, still bellied up to the public trough.
"It has struck me odd for some time now, that the party of Rock the Vote has anything but a youthful visage (Pelosi’s botox notwithstanding!) So here’s a short and by no means comprehensive list, in no particular order, of the Democratic leadership of the House and a few of those wild and crazy young Senators (and their ages):"
Representative Nancy Pelosi (74) CA

Representative Steny Hoyer (75) MD

Sec. State John Forbes Kerry (71) MA

Senator Harry Reid (75) NV

Senator Barbara Boxer (74) CA

Senator Diane Feinstein (81) CA

Wannabee President Hillary Rodham Clinton (67) NY

Senator Charles E. Schumer (64) NY

Senator Patrick Leahy (74) VT

DNC video: “Government Is The Only Thing We All Belong To”

By the Full Metal Patriot

The Democrats started their convention last night with a bit of unexpected honesty. They tried to put their best spin on big government, including the notion that our federal government owns every American.

The Democrat Party has completely lost it. They have no understanding about our nation's foundation. The government belongs to us, we do not belong to the government. Government exists to serve us, we do not exist to serve government.

Protest in Bell, California – I Hope I Played a Small Part in This…

by the Left Coast Rebel

…….because I surely support what these residents of Bell, California are doing with every fiber of my being. I wonder if my little Daily Caller canary in the coal mine-post put (even a little more) pressure on these miscreants in the city government that are/were fleecing the residents of Bell, California:

Glenn Reynolds catches the money-line from the Reason video, “They are robbing the city blind…We have a very predatory government.”

And although this is sure not a Tea Party gathering in Bell, California – I can tell you that the spirit of the Tea Party and that of freedom is there.

And thinking of this – God help us when the typical-Democrat constituencies wake up to the Obamanation and the abominations that he has forced upon our nation.

Will there be civic unrest? Or is the question – when?

Hat-tip Instapundit.

Updated: On a completely unrelated topic (or is it?), you surely saw today that the Feds blocked key provisions of the common sense Arizona law SB 1070. Go to Legal Insurrection to cut through the fog of minutiae and right to the chaste on this news.

William Jacobson is a scholar, a formidable intellect and a patriot, in the least.

Updated x2: GayPatriot weighs in too:

While at the gym earlier today doing cardio, I watched to see the various CNN anchors and reporter jubilant that Clinton appointee Judge Susan R. Bolton striking down the most “controversial” provisions in Arizona’s immigration law.

Given that poll after poll after poll has shown that a sizable majority of Americans support this law, this can only strengthen the hand of Republicans going into the fall elections, particularly given the Democratic Administration’s grandstanding opposition and successful suit.

Here, you have two issues, immigration and judicial overreach redounding to Republicans’ benefit.

John L. Perry of NewsMax, Democrat?

by the Left Coast Rebel

I am suspect and suspicious of everything that I see and read today. Case in point the last post that I did, the Mr. John L. Perry of Newsmax; something seemed a little ‘fishy’ to me, (to borrow a White House term). Cliff over at Another Black Conservative left me a little note on Perry, that he had extensive Democrat ties. Really, I thought, this guy that just wrote up the Military Intervention article?

So the first place that I headed over to was the horse ‘o the mouth itself, as the say – From the author’s page at the site –

  • John L. Perry, an award-winning newspaper editor and writer, who served on White House staffs of two presidents, contributes a regular column to

  • Perry also has had a distinguished career in public policy. He served President Lyndon B. Johnson as deputy under secretary of commerce and was a White House speech writer and race-relations trouble-shooter for President Johnson.

  • In the Jimmy Carter administration, he was executive assistant to the under secretary of Housing and Urban Development and was interim director of public information for the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

  • Perry served as press aide to Gov. LeRoy Collins of Florida and executive assistant to the speaker of the Florida House of Representatives.

  • Perry was also assistant to the president of the National Association of Broadcasters, a member of the top-management team and director of public relations for the 1982 World’s Fair in Knoxville, Tenn., and an academic fellow at the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions in Santa Barbara, Calif.

Hardly the résumé of a fire-breathing right-winger. Will update as I come across more information on this guy……
