Poll: Is Alvin Greene a Republican plant?

There’s been a lot of controversy about the Alvin Greene victory in the South Carolina democrat primary for the Senate. Not many people had heard of Greene before his victory, and yet he pulled out an impressive win. After the primary, it came out that Greene has pending felony obscenity charges against him, that he … Continue reading

The Future of the democrat Party

I don’t see the big deal. Thursday night, Keith Olbermann had an interview with Alvin Greene, the man who won the democratic nomination to run for the Senate in South Carolina. Here’s a link to the video (link). Watch it. You won’t be sorry. He seemed disconnected from reality, took most of his answers from … Continue reading

Lincoln Halts Halter

In a huge victory for Republicans, incumbent Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) has defeated Bill Halter in the primary runoff in Arkansas. She will run against John Boozman (R-AR) in November. Halter was the darling of the ‘progressive’ crowd and the labor unions, who pumped millions of dollars into Arkansas in an attempt to buy the … Continue reading

Supremely Qualified

Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens announced today that he is retiring, as of the end of this term. At that time he will be 90 years old, having served on the Court for the last 35 years. Sad to say, he has long out-served his relevance on the Court. When Stevens was nominated by … Continue reading

Militias, Malicious?

The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America reads: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. This is the most fundamental example of the desire of the Founding Fathers for American … Continue reading

Quinnipiac Poll

There is a recent poll from Quinnipiac University that’s trying to scare Tea Partiers into not running for office. They say that Republicans have the advantage (44% to 39%) over democrats in the next election unless there’s a Tea Party candidate. Then the democrats win with 36%, the Republican would get 25%, and the Tea … Continue reading

Second Major Vote

At 10:49pm, HR 3590 passed: 219 to 212. No Republicans at all voted for the bill, and 34 democrats joined the Republicans in their opposition. Now comes the Motion to Recommit. That’s not expected to derail the process, but might slow it down. And then the vote on the ‘fixes’ in HR 4872. All this should get … Continue reading

First Major Vote

At 6:37pm, the House passed the first of three voting hurdles necessary to pass Obamacare. They approved the rules for debate (426-0). At that point, debate on the actual bill and package of fixes (HR3590 and HR4872) were allowed and shortly began. One hour to debate each means that the debate portion of this charade … Continue reading

The Fall of the Stupak Six (Eight? Nine? Dozen?)

Well, the dominoes are falling. Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) and his allies have just capitulated. They will almost certainly give the democrats the vote margin they need to pass Obamacare through the House. Apparently President Obama has promised to issue an Executive Order reiterating that the Hyde Amendment applies in this case. That would reinforce … Continue reading

House Schedule

The House should be starting their legislative day soon. The plan is this (all times eastern): 1pm: The House convenes. The House democratic Caucus meets. ‘Bed check’ votes to allow time for last minute whip counts. 2pm-4pm: First major vote – the ‘rule’ to establish debate guidelines. This was where the were going to try … Continue reading
