House democrat mocks new tea party colleaques

“Everything to them is unconstitutional.”

Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) appeared on the nationally syndicated Stephanie Miller Show to discuss how it is working with her new, Tea Party colleagues in the House.

This is what they think of us, folks.  But that’s okay.  I don’t think much of them either.  🙂  Boy, are they steamed about their little apple cart being tipped.

Just watch:

Well, well, Low-retta.  Where’d ya git that name, Miss Smarty-Pants?

And Stephanie Miller says, “This is a new breed” referring to the 89 = that’s 89 new members of the House.  I remember Stephanie when she tried out as a replacement for Imus.  Big old sweat spots under her arms.  Needless to say, she didn’t last but a couple days.

This new breed is the one and only hope for this country to rescue it out of the hands of people like Loretta Sanchez. 

Remember that name:  Loretta Sanchez, (D-Ca).

Maybe we can send a little money to any opponent she may have.

Here you go, Lowretta.  Allow me:

Leland Yee launches hit job on Limbaugh for joking about leader of communist China

Yee inserted himself in this situation.  Nobody was talking to him.  He just wants to play the victim as he has before.

He has accused Sarah Palin supporters of making threats to him, he tried to link a threat he claims to have received to the Tucson shooting, and now he is trying to blame a Rush Limbaugh fan for a threat.  Give me a break.  Reeks to High Heaven

You just never know what you might run across.  I was looking for comparisons of Reagan to Palin and found this website called “Reagan to Palin.”  So I got distracted on this:

Leland Yee is all in a silly little dither over Rush Limbaugh trying to sound like Hu without an interpreter.  Mr. Yee seems to be offended over this and demands an apology (which, thank goodness, is not forthcoming) and since that didn’t work, he is calling for a boycott on Rush’s sponsors.  That hasn’t gotten much traction so he now claims he got a very nasty fax threatening him from “a Rush fan.”  I don’t know, maybe it’s real but I wouldn’t put money on it.  I started to say, “Oh, no, he caught me!”  (Smile)  Not really.  Not really.  I’m kidding.  Don’t send out the FBI.  I would bet money it turns out to be a plant or was sent by someone from the loving left.

Mr. Yee seems to be a literal magnet for threats.  He received threats a few years ago because he sponsored a bill to ban or limit violent video games.  You can’t take away the children’s video games without raising some anger, he should know that, even though it may be a good idea.

Then he claims to have received threats by Palin supporters in regards to this dumpster diving incident where they supposedly found a contract or something in the trash.  Don’t remember it and don’t know all the details, but I’m linking to this post at Reagan to Palin.com.

I see where he also claimed to receive death threats he thought were connected to the Tucson shooting.  Sarah Palin again, I guess.  Now, he’s in San Francisco, mind you, but he has Arizona looking into it.  But you just never know whose hands that map with targets on it may have fallen into.  Maybe one actually made it to San Francisco, who knows.  Or did somebody say “reload.”

Of course, you ask Glenn Beck how many threats he gets, and he says he has 15 or more at any given moment.  And I’m sure all public figures get them.  Just imagine, if you can, the number of death threats Sarah Palin has received, along with her children who are hated for no reason whatsoever.   Michelle Malkin has published a lot of her’s.

I do believe Mr. Yee is just looking for attention. If he thought he was in danger, he should report it, but does he have to make it a big media event? No.

I don’t know Mr. Yee, never heard of him, but this article says he is a democrat darling along the lines of Nancy Pelosi and that just about says it all.  Somebody dug up some background on him as follows:

First of all the California legislative member, and political friend of Nancy Pelosi, is Sen. Leland Yee.  He is little more than a far-left gadfly who helped preside over the pending financial collapse of the state of California.  But, that’s not all.  Mr. Yee, now an American citizen but Chinese by birth, attended college at UC BERKLEY which would account for many of his radical views.  He represents a politically carved out district in San Francisco and served on the School Board there at one time.

Over the years, however, Senator Yee has engaged in questionable conduct:  Three police encounters over cruising for prostitutes in San Francisco’s Mission District, a 1993 shop lifting incident, and an investigation found that Lee’s taxpayer owned computers were the source for repeated attempts to re-write Lee’s WIKIPEDIA biography to exclude his legal problems and build up his reputation.

Palin hater & Pelosi friend, radical and discredited California State Senator Leland Yee (Police run-ins over prostitution & shop lifting)

Mr. Yee got his feelings hurt over something he probably did not hear to begin with.  And it’s really too bad.  He is the one who brought attention to himself.  If these people  would just stop listening to someone or some program they don’t like, they would save themselves a world of grief.  But I can tell you that it hurts my feelings when he and others vilify and lie about Sarah Palin, because she represents me.  And I like Rush, too, a lot.  He and Palin both build up the country that gives these mean-spirited people the right to speak their minds.  But for some reason, they don’t want anybody else to speak.

So, there you go.  Mr. Leland Yee.  Lay off Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin.  You know, it’s not civil nor nice to try to hurt somebody because they don’t agree with you or because some of us can laugh at ourselves and take a joke, or because you think it might elevate you to link to their names.  Maybe you should not take yourself quite so seriously.  Like I said before, some of you are wrapped way too tight.  Had you just laughed it off, nobody would have ever linked you to Rush Limbaugh.  And, again, he was not talking about YOU.  He was making a joke about the leader of Communist China, Hu Jintao.

To quote AWR Hawkin at Big Journalism on January 31, 2011:

“Hu Jintao carries on the “proud” tradition of Mao Tse-Tung and the real shame is not that Limbaugh translated the speech phonically, but that Democrats continue to defend Communist thugs and dictators.

Limbaugh has successfully outsmarted the CHICOMS and their sympathizers once more.”

Barbara Boxer “Don’t Call Me Ma’am” Spoof (video)

The real event where Ms. Boxer told a BRIGADIER GENERAL how hard she had worked for Her title of Senator.

Perhaps she could be stripped of her Senator title, huh?  I don’t think she has worked very hard for it in the past say 28 years but she is having to work a little bit now.

VOTE FOR CARLY FIORINA.  Send Boxer home for a rest.

California’s U.S. Senate race between Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer and Republican challenger Carly Fiorina remains a virtual tie with less than two weeks to go until Election Day.

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Boxer picking up 48% of the vote, while Fiorina draws support from 46%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The race remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings.

Newsweek magazine SOLD to Who?

To democrats/progressives:

Sarah Palin’s husband, Todd, has purchased Newsweek magazine.

This is an outrage, right?

Oh, wait a minute.  I got that wrong.  It’s Democrat Congresswoman, Jane Harman’s husband, Sidney Harman, instead.

Now tell me how this is not a conflict of interest?

Imagine the outcry if this were a republican!!  Let’s watch the double standard play itself out here.  I’m sure it will be a-okay since it’s a mighty democrat involved.

On August 2, 2010, Sidney Harman, the 91-year-old founder of audio equipment maker Harman International Industries Inc., and husband of Representative Jane Harmon, (D/Calif) has agreed to buy Newsweek, ending a nearly half-century chapter for the magazine as part of The Washington Post Co.

Jon Meacham, the magazine’s top editor since 2006, will step down.

****

On July 8, 2010, Mattie Fein, Jane Harman’s (republican) opponent in the 36th district in California, wrote an open letter to Newsweek’s Managing Editor Jon Meacham voicing concerns over Jane Harman’s history of strong arm tactics that could potentially influence Newsweek magazine if an acquisition by Harman International is successful.

TORRANCE, Calif., Aug. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The following is an open letter from Mattie Fein to Donald Graham, CEO of Washington Post Co., on the Harman International bid to acquire Newsweek:

Dear Mr. Graham:

According to The New York Times, at present, you are inclined towards accepting the bid for Newsweek submitted by audio and defense software company Harman International.  But neither Jane Harman nor Newsweek’s Jon Meacham have answered my documented concerns that Harman International sells dual use electronics with business in Iran through a wholly owned Austrian subsidiary; that Jane Harman should divest herself of her millions in Harman International shares to avoid a conflict of interest or loyalties in Congress; and, that Jane Harman has a troublesome history of interfering with a free press to advance a political agenda, which would only be aggravated by her millions of dollars of share ownership in Harman International.  Consider the following elaboration.

Jane Harman is notorious for attempting to cripple the role of the press in providing organized scrutiny of government and exposing government wrongdoing.  She interceded with The New York Times to attempt to kill the disclosure of the government’s illegal warrantless Terrorist Surveillance Program; and, when that failed, she urged an Espionage Act prosecution of the newspaper for unearthing government action on this issue.  Jane Harman was following if not bettering the instruction of those who conceived an attempt to thwart publication of The Pentagon Papers by Washington Post, which The Washington Post courageously opposed.

In a recent letter to Newsweek’s Jon Meacham, I flagged a Harman-Iran issue crying out for further investigation.  A wholly owned subsidiary of Harman International in Austria is distributing arguably dual use electronic equipment in Iran at the same time the United States is tightening sanctions there to deter nuclear proliferation.  Iran is listed by the United States as a state sponsor of terrorism.  I urged Jane Harman to divest her shares, but she has neither said nor done anything.  Members of Congress, like Caesar’s wife, should be above suspicion.

Newsweek has neglected to report on Harman’s scorn for a free press or conflict of interest in owning Harman International shares that gain in value from trade with Iran.  The Washington Post on June 14, 2010 published an article on lawmaker’s conflicts of interest targeting Jane Harman but, no follow through on the Iran issue. The silence is deafening. Is there a sinister force at work?

You and your family are the stewards of Newsweek’s long and honorable tradition of independent news reporting or editorializing.  I would suggest you consider asking Meacham and Harman to answer my concerns about compromising that fine tradition in conducting due diligence.

Sincerely,  
Mattie Fein

Obama campaigns for Barbara Boxer

Touchy.  Touchy.

bama encountered a little opposition yesterday while campaigning for Barbara Boxer in California.

When one protester shouted “repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” Obama stopped and said, “We are going to do that,” as the crowd tried to drown out the shouting with chants of “Yes, We Can!” Obama added, “When you’ve got an ally like Barbara Boxer and you’ve got an ally like me who are standing for the same thing, then you don’t know exactly why you’ve got to holler, because we already hear you, all right? I mean, it would have made more sense to holler that at the people who oppose it.”

When the shouts continued, Obama finally said, “I’m sorry, but do you want to come up here?”

http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118018021.html?categoryid=1009&cs=1

AUDIENCE MEMBER: Repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell!”

THE PRESIDENT: We are going to do that. Hey, hold on a second, hold on a second. We are going to do that.

AUDIENCE: Yes, we can! Yes, we can! Yes, we can! Yes, we can!

THE PRESIDENT: Here we go. All right — guys, guys, all right. I agree, I agree, I agree. (Applause.) Now —

AUDIENCE MEMBER: (Inaudible.)

THE PRESIDENT: No, no, no, no, listen. What the young man was talking about was we need to — we need to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” which I agree with and which we have begun to do. (Applause.) But let me say this: When you’ve got an ally like Barbara Boxer and you’ve got an ally like me who are standing for the same thing, then you don’t know exactly why you’ve got to holler, because we already hear you, all right? (Applause.) I mean, it would have made more sense to holler that at the people who oppose it. (Applause.)

AUDIENCE MEMBER: It’s time for equality for all Americans!

THE PRESIDENT: I’m sorry, do you want to come up here? (Applause.) You know, the — all right, because can I just say, once again, Barbara and I are supportive of repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” so I don’t know why you’re hollering.

Now, the problems that we have here put a further strain on folks in this state, forcing painful choices about where to spend and where to save. And the challenges folks have been facing here —

AUDIENCE MEMBER: (Inaudible.)

AUDIENCE: Yes, we can! Yes, we can! Yes, we can! Yes, we can!

THE PRESIDENT: Barbara — I just — everybody, I just wanted to confirm — I just wanted to confirm — I just checked with Barbara, so if anybody else is thinking about starting a chant, Barbara didn’t even vote for “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in the first place, so you know she’s going to be in favor of repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” (Applause.)

Note:  the above video is a short clip, but it really is interesting and revealing to watch from the beginning. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eX9AMRV2ZHw

From the man who said, “If they bring a knife, we’ll bring a gun,” and “Get in their face,” we now have him inviting the protester to what sounds like a personal fight, “come up here.”  And he just couldn’t resist blaming “the other side.”  He can’t seem to grasp that he IS the other side, so to speak.  In other words, he is the government,  the “establishment.”

Hope this doesn’t incite any violence. 🙂

I want my country back! Tea Party Express II

Rick Sanchez  of CNN had a segment, in August I believe it was, referring to a Town Hall protester who said, “I want my country back.”  Then Ricky asks in ominous tones:  What does that mean?  I want my country back?

What hideous, black heart could be behind a statement like that? Well, Roland Martin explains it.  CNN’s Martin: the “I want my country back” comment means “How is this black guy all of the sudden running the country?”

Now, bear in mind, this was in AUGUST of 2009.  If these paid mouths had any insight or any knowledge of what they were saying, if they did not have a preconceived “perspective” they wanted to promote,  they wold know this comment comes from this little satirical song – copyright 2007.  Take a listen.

At the time, I don’t believe anyone even in their wildest imagination thought that Barack Obama would be elected.  Be honest!

Or it could eeeven harkened  back to some wanting to take the country back–from Bush!

But now suddenly CNN and Mr. Roland says it has some racial connotation against our president.   They are dishonest and corrupt.  And unashamed.

Tea Party Express II

From October 25th to November 11th, 2009, California to Florida.  Tell Congress and the White House: “Enough!”

I just saw a very short flash to a CNN reporter they apparently have covering this tea party express tour.  Very short, indeed.  What kind of perspective will be presented of the tour and those who are a part of it or wish they were?  Guess.

I wonder if the full force and power of the White House will come out with their own perspective?  Axelrod has already declared the movement as “just wrong.”

I also heard a discussion today in which Lanny Davis said that all presidents have had issues with the press, citing the fact that a couple of them cancelled their subscription to a newspaper or two.  I can cancel a newspaper subscription.  That is quite different than the White House coming out in force, even to the point of the president joining in, and declaring a network to be irrelevant and trying to dictact to the other networks whether or not they consider them to be a “real” news network.

This is unprecedented in degree – unprecedented.   If anyone wondered if the charge of socialist lodged against Obama during the campaign was over the top, there should be no doubt at this time.  I think the argument now has moved to something like, “well, is there anything all that wrong with being socialist?”  🙂

I say, “Damn right there is.”

Here’s the CNN clip I was referring to.
