Jews In Ukraine Told To Register Or Leave

this may sound vaguely familiar to some of you

Yet another foreign policy success of the Obama administration and the isolationist wing of the conservative movement is shaping up nicely Ukraine. After having carved a chunk of his neighbor’s territory off via a bald-faced military coup as the West stood by dumbly, Vladimir Putin has proceeded to try the same tried and true strategy that worked in Crimea in Eastern Ukraine. Capitalizing on Ron Paul’s favorite idea, “self determination,” suspiciously well -armed Russophone militias have started seizing government buildings and clashing with Ukrainian troops. They have also established entities like the “People’s Republic of Donetsk.” It is presumed that the real purpose of these newly independent enclaves is to ask the Russian Duma to allow them to join Russia.

One of the first actions we’ve seen from the purported authorities is to require Jews to register with the government and pay a fee or face deportation. One should not consider this to be an idle threat. The situation in Ukraine is volatile. The government in Kiev has tenuous control of its territory and the militias operating under Russian approval and, seemingly with the assistance of the Russian Army, have only a sketchy chain of command. As The Telegraph points out:

Harry Reid: Cliven Bundy and supporters are ‘domestic terrorists’

While many have condemned the strong-arming and pseudo-military tactics of the Bureau of Labor Management in its standoff with Cliven Bundy, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, reserved his criticism for the Bundy family and their many supporters — which he labelled domestic terrorists.

Reid’s comments came during a live interview with Steve Sebelius, a columnist for the Las Vegas Review Journal. Reporter Jon Ralston, who attended the event, tweeted Reid’s statements regarding the dispute between Bundy and the BLM:

The Chamber of Cowards

“Senator [fill in the blank] had the courage to save our financial system by supporting the $700 billion Wall Street bailout.  He saved us from default by voting to constantly raise the debt ceiling and ended the government shutdown by voting for Obamacare.  In addition, he has stood firm against right – wingers who seek to end corporate welfare.  Finally, Senator… has always been a strong supporter of Common Core and will always be a reliable vote for amnesty for undocumented Americans – the future of our country.”

Paid for by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.  Not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.  The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is responsible for the content of this advertising.

This is a copy of a generic TV ad you will never see run by the Chamber on behalf of establishment Republicans during their hundred million dollar blitz this spring.

Why not?

Don’t they proudly support endless debt ceiling increases, bailouts, fixing Obamacare, amnesty, corporate welfare and Common Core?  And if their views represent a winning equation, why not honestly disseminate them to the voters?

CONGRESSIONAL COMPENSATION SHOULD BE LEFT TO THE STATES


Commentary by E Dee Monnen
April 12, 2014

With so many American’s struggling today, could there be a more absurd comment than Congressman Jim Moran’s claim that our U.S. representatives are underpaid?  Unlike regular employees, who must build their case for greater compensation and meet the boss face-to-face, Congress is free to vote themselves largess without justification.

Perhaps it’s time to remove all compensation decisions from Capitol Hill and place that responsibility in every State House in America.  Individual states ought to be responsible for a U.S. representative’s paycheck—US senators, too. Let the state legislators in Richmond hold Virginia Congressman Moran and others from his delegation accountable for their work or non-work in Congress. Our federal representatives would then be forced to explain their worth to the people. 

Every state should also be responsible for housing their representatives in Washington. Whether the state pays the rent or purchases a permanent residence, it should be out of the hands of every Congressman and woman, unless an individual representative wishes to provide their own housing with their own money.  Congressman Moran, whose district is literally at DC’s backdoor, never needs a hotel for overnights or an apartment for longer stays. He’s practically home when he leaves his DC office. This is what makes Moran’s demand for a higher salary even more unbelievable.

States don’t like it when the federal government gives them more responsibilities without compensation, but this has merit.  It may cost the states a little more, but not the taxpayers. No matter which government agency foots the bill, it all comes out of the taxpayers’ wallet.  Only this way, citizens would have a greater say.

Eric Holder Threatens Louie Gohmert: 'You Don't Want To Go There Buddy'

Tuesday at a House Judiciary Committee hearing, Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) questioned Attorney General Eric Holder about Congress' requests for documents relating to congressional investigations...

"I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our Attorney General, but it is important that we have proper oversight," Gohmert said.

"You don’t want to go there buddy," Holder replied. "You don’t want to go there OK?”

"You should not assume that uh that is not a big deal to me, I think it was inappropriate," Holder continued. "I think it was unjust, but never think that it was not a big deal to me. Don’t ever think that.”

"I don’t need lectures from you about contempt," Gohmert added.

"And I don’t need lectures from you either," Holder shot back.

Texas State Senator Bob Deuell Gets Desperate

“Desperate times call for desperate measures” must be the new campaign motto for establishment State Senator Bob Deuell. As one of the most liberal Republicans in the Texas Senate during the 83rd Legislature, Deuell failed to secure enough votes during the March primary to avoid a runoff against two more conservative and drastically underfunded challengers. Now, with grassroots across the state bearing down on his race, he’s seeing the writing on the wall and attempting to jump on the Dan Patrick bandwagon to avoid a stunning defeat at the end of May.

Deuell, who scored a 53 on the Fiscal Responsibility Index, spent nearly $370,000 (about $30 for every $1 of his tea party challenger Bob Hall) in his quest to win re-election in Senate District 2, only to earn 48% of the vote on the night of the primary. Hall, who spent only $12,400, earned 39% of the vote, while Mark Thompson came in third with 13% after spending a measly $1,370.

So what’s an establishment incumbent to do when trying to spend, spend, spend their way to re-election isn’t working?

Queue the political head-fakes.

Yesterday, Sen. Deuell announced his endorsement of State Senator Dan Patrick in his race for Lt. Governor. Patrick (who earned a 93 on the last Fiscal Responsibility Index) performed better than pundits expected — coming out on top of sitting Lt. Governor David Dewhurst 41% to 28% in a four-way race. Patrick has earned the primary endorsement of many tea party and conservative groups, including Texans for Fiscal Responsibility.

Emails Show Lois Lerner Fed True the Vote Tax Information to Democrat Elijah Cummings

New IRS emails released by the House Oversight Committee show staff working for Democratic Ranking Member Elijah Cummings communicated with the IRS multiple times between 2012 and 2013 about voter fraud prevention group True the Vote. True the Vote was targeted by the IRS after applying for tax exempt status more than two years ago. Further, information shows the IRS and Cummings' staff asked for nearly identical information from True the Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht about her organization, indicating coordination and improper sharing of confidential taxpayer information.

Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa, along with five Subcommittee Chairmen are demanding Cummings provide an explanation for the staff inquiries to the IRS about True the Vote and for his denial that his staff ever contacted the IRS about the group.

“Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional agency scrutiny, communication records between your staff and IRS officials – which you did not disclose to Majority Members or staff – indicates otherwise,” the letter to Cummings states. “As the Committee is scheduled to consider a resolution holding Ms. Lerner, a participant in responding to your communications that you failed to disclose, in contempt of Congress, you have an obligation to fully explain your staff’s undisclosed contacts with the IRS.”

The first contact between the IRS and Cummings' staffers about True the Vote happened in August 2012. In January 2013, staff asked for more information from the IRS about the group. Former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS Lois Lerner went out of her way to try and get information to Cummings' office.The information Cummings received was not shared with Majority Members on the Committee.

On January 28, three days after staffers requested more information, Lerner wrote an email to her deputy Holly Paz, who has since been put on administrative leave, asking, “Did we find anything?” Paz responded immediately by saying information had not been found yet, to which Lerner replied, “Thanks, check tomorrow please.”

On January 31, Paz sent True the Vote's 990 forms to Cumming's staff.

Up until this point, Rep. Cummings has denied his staff ever contacted the IRS about True the Vote and their activities during Oversight hearings. In fact, on February 6, 2014 during a Subcommittee hearing where Engelbrecht testified, Cummings vehemently denied having any contact or coordination in targeting True the Vote when attorney Cleta Mitchell, who is representing the group, indicated staff on the Committee had been involved in communication with the IRS. This was the exchange:

The Lesson of Ted Cruz’s Two Foreign Policy Victories

As we reported several weeks ago, GOP leaders were planning to capitulate to Democrats on the IMF bailout by allowing them to slip the provision into the Ukraine aid package.  On March 13, Senator Cruz sent a letter to Senator Harry Reid warning that he planned to block the bill if the IMF provision remained.  While only a few Republicans joined him from the onset, and some like Senator John McCain even lambasted him, Cruz harnessed his megaphone to rally Americans all over the country and embarrass those who supported this provision to weaken our nation’s power on the world stage.

Ultimately, Republicans in the Senate and the House were forced into joining the fight, and Democrats were pressured to drop their demands.

Hence, this is the power and prerogative of one Senator to be a voice, not just a vote in the Senate.

Fast-forward a few weeks and Senator Cruz got wind of another issue that needed to be addressed – one which would have been ignored by senators in both parties.  The government of Iran decided to appoint Hamid Aboutalebi as their ambassador to the United Nations.  Aboutalebi was one of the leaders of the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, one of the deeds for which the current regime has never been held to account.

Following the rules of past senators, Cruz could have joined the chorus of merely denouncing the appointment.  And indeed the Obama administration called the nomination of Aboutalebi “extremely troubling.”  But Cruz was the one who took the initiative to actually send a definitive message to Iran by introducing legislation (S. 2195) to ban him and other known terrorists from being granted visas to enter the U.S., even for the purpose of serving at the United Nations headquarters in New York.

While this was an initiative publicly supported by many members across the aisle, it was only Ted Cruz’s high profile campaign to elevate the issue that embarrassed Democrats into considering the floor.  Shortly thereafter, Chuck Schumer co-sponsored the bill.  Yesterday, the bill passed the Senate by unanimous consent.

The man who is regarded as the most combative conservative in the Senate managed to pass a bill through a Democrat-controlled Senate without a vote.  That is true leadership.  Working across the aisle doesn’t mean putting a Republican stamp on liberal policies, as the political class wishes to happen on a daily basis.  It means harnessing our leverage and political megaphones to inspire, convince, and even shame the other side into supporting our causes.

Texas State Senator Bob Deuell & Obamacare Death Panels

Texas State Senator Bob Deuell authored SB 303 which would have granted hospitals the power to impose denial-of-care directives, such as "do not attempt resuscitation" (DNAR), against patients without their consent and without even giving them written notice. Fortunately, the bill was defeated, but Senator Deuell is up for reelection and Texans must remember this bill when they hit the voting booths.

The AAPS (Association of American Physicians and Surgeons) apply named the bill the "Right for Hospitals to Deny Care Act".
