Who will he kill next?

Obama, I mean. 

If this is the way it’s going to be done, then I recommend Hasan be shot immediately, the Times Square bomber and the panty bomber, too.

I think al Aulaqi should have been captured and tried for treason, but something is bothering me about this.  Obama and his administration have been insisting on trials in NYC for non-citizens in Gitmo, and essentially they are shooting down an American citizen, as dispicable as he may be.  Was he on some battlefield in Yemen? 

Something just ain’t right.

Anwar al-Aulaqi (AP/Muhammad ud-Deen) U.S. officials have given Anwar al-Aulaqi a newly elevated designation on the day of his death by drone strike, describing him as “chief of external operations” for al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen.

The new title, cited by officials at the White House and the CIA, reflects Aulaqi’s evolution from Muslim cleric to alleged terrorist plotter, as well as a desire by American officials to persuade the public that the extraordinary killing of a U.S. citizen overseas was warranted.

House committee of 3 passed FEMA funding until next Tuesday

 A short-term spending measure to fund the federal government into next week won approval Thursday from the U.S. House and now goes to President Barack Obama’s desk.

http://www.cnn.com/2011/09/29/politics/fema-funding/index.html

Short term, indeed.  Until next Tuesday. 

So I take it the House chose the one-week extension from the three choices they had:

The Senate passed and sent to the House a CR with the extra FEMA funds not offset. A second vote on a clean CR. And finally, a one-week clean CR that the House can pass by unanimous consent.

Congressional approval of the measure keeps the government funded through October 4. The House will then have to consider a more comprehensive measure that would keep the government funded through November 18.

It was passed by 3 House members using a unanimous consent procedure.  It goes to the president for signature.  It sounds to me that the “one week clean CR” was what was passed today.

I really don’t understand what this does for the FEMA funding. Unless the CR IS the FEMA funding…..  I was thinking it involved a lot more than just the FEMA funding because surely that one agency not being funded would not Shut Down the government, as Reid was whimpering about.  Anybody know?

Sounds to me like it is still not settled.  I am really confused.  What period of time is the $2.65 billion that is supposed to go for FEMA?

A Rosh Hashanah message from Jersey

I wonder if this is how it felt in Sodom, and Gomorrah, the day before the fire and brimstone fell from the sky…

We have been warned.

GOP needs only 4 seats to take Senate in 2012

The chances appear pretty good for the GOP to pick up a net gain of 4 seats in the U.S. Senate, thereby moving themselves from a 47-53 minority to a 51-49 majority. They may do even better than that if the current trends remain, uhm, trending. CLICK HERE. The better news for CONSERVATIVE Republicans, is the chance that the new GOP Senators will tend to be more conservative than the ones who are retiring or who get replaced in 2012, either in primary or general election.

Go HERE to vote furious, intriqued, thrilled, bored, sad, or laughing.

I really think there will be more than 4 seats gained by the GOP.

Some states to watch are:

North Dakota
Montana
Missouri
Nebraska
Virginia
Wisconsin

Obama administration today approves Billion dollars for 2 separate Solyndra type energy loans

This is an ouitrage.

 Obama administration rushes to approve more Solyndra like loans just a couple days before the deadline is reached.

It’s over a billion dollars and someone has estimated it will cost over a million dollars for each job that is created.

This is outrageous.  Don’t you just hate being taken for a fool.  Obama just keeps sticking it to u.  Somebody needs to DO something about this and stop it NOW!!

FEMA found money that “averts” Reid’s threatened shutdown

Well, isn’t it amazing how FEMA suddenly found money and can make it until end of the current comtinuing resolution? Goodness Gracious, Friday Harry Reid was crying about a government shutdown.

The House demanded an accounting and passed the funding based on taking the money from other funding, which was money for electric cars and for other Solyndra type funding. They should just cut that funding in any event.

But as soon as the House passed the ball to Harry Reid’s democrat Senate, lo and behold, FEMA found some money. The Senate has tabled the House bill and passed their own bill and moved it to the House. I am not sure what is in it. Who can know?  I didn’t think the Houise of Repsentatives was in session.

OR here’s what is reported to have happened in the Senatet: 

The Senate will vote on three bills tonight: A vote on a CR with the extra FEMA funds not offset. A second vote on a clean CR. And finally the upper chamber will vote on a one-week clean CR by voice vote that the House can pass by unanimous consent.

(Hmmm now that really clears it up.)

Even as Washington establishment seeths, the republican House, thanks to the new tea party members, is having an impact. So you can plainly see who is behind all the wild spending.   And they don’t want to stop even now. They would rather threaten another government shutdown than to cut some of the “green energy” money that is being thrown about. I just wonder whose pocket all that money is going into?  Tom, Dick, or Harry?

Mitch McConnell made the following statement:

“FEMA indicated it already has the funds it needs for the duration of the current [Continuing Resolution] which is basically this week, without the billions more in funding the Democrats have been calling for,” McConnell said. “Quite frankly I think this is a vindication of what Republicans have been saying all along: Before we spend the taxpayers’ money we should have a real accounting, a real accounting of what is actually needed.”

He is part of the problem or has been. He is eat up with Washington filth, in my opinion. Shouldn’t say that because I am not sure, but he has been there a long, long time and so he has to be a party to what has been going on up there.

I await the vote in the House of Representatives on the Senate bill that is being advertised as a sure thing (as in shutdown averted). I don’t know how they are so sure about that since the House has not passed it yet.

And as we end this fiscal year – WHERE IS THE BUDGET? All of this wrangling is due to the fact there is no budget. Democrats, do you ever intend to comply with the law and pass a budget?

Herman Cain tops republican field in Zogby Poll

A new Zogby poll puts Herman Cain​ at the top of the Republican field, as the top choice of 28% of poll respondents. (IBOPE Zogby International says the polling sample consists of “all likely voters and of likely Republican primary voters.”)

Rounding out the top three are Rick Perry at 18%, and Mitt Romney at 17%. Fourth place goes to Ron Paul at 11%. Paul’s the most solid performer in Zogby’s polling history for the 2012 GOP race – his 11% might as well be chiseled in stone.

Interestingly, this poll was conducted after the Orlando GOP debate, but before Cain won the Florida straw poll.
