Skeletor Pelosi was asked why she is so confident the Supreme Court will uphold the health care law.
About as much as she knows about how many Americans are really unemployed in this country and how much stimulus would affect them.
…if we do not have an economic recovery package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.
About as much as she knows about the Bible.
“The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, ‘To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.’ On this Earth Day, and every day, let us pledge to our children, and our children’s children, that they will have clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature.”
About as much as she understands grassroots movements in this nation.
While groups like the George Soros-funded MoveOn.org have managed to elude the “Astroturf” moniker, from its inception, the Tea Party movement has taken shots from its critics. One of the most popular left-wing charges was to call it “Astroturf,” meaning it was presented as a grassroots efforts, but wasn’t really grassroots. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi labeled the Tea Party movement “Astroturf” back during the original Tax Day Tea Party protest on April 15, 2009.
About as much as she knows about job creation.
“Unemployment benefits are creating jobs faster than practically any other program”
About as much as she knows about fossil fuels.
“I believe in natural gas as a clean, cheap alternative to fossil fuels.”
Just wanted to mention that our friend Ken Vaughn has been snagging a lot of great endorsements lately – from people who matter – from people who live in the 11th District – which I think is pretty awesome.
Those endorsements include:
- David Ray – State Central Committee member, 11th Congressional District
- Geraldine Davie – Delegate to the Republican National Convention, Virginia’s 11th Congressional District
- James Lightweis – Delegate to the Republican National Convention, Virginia’s 11th Congressional District
- Steven Yeh – Former Congressional Candidate, 11th Congressional District
- Jerry Geddes- Former Congressional Candidate, 11th Congressional District
- Terrence Boulden – African-American Coalition Chairman, Fairfax County Republican Committee
- Fredy Burgos – Burke Precinct Captain, 11th Congressional District
But that’s not all. The Republican Liberty Caucus – the wing of the GOP that is dedicated to true freedom and liberty in every sense of the word – also gave Ken its nod, as did several conservative blogs, such as Mason Conservative, Crystal Clear Conservative, Just a Conservative Girl and School of Athens.
It’s commonly referred to as BOHICA – a military acronym that means you’re about to get screwed. Again.
This time, it’s the TSA and the Democrats (I know, you’re shocked!) getting you ready for yet another reaming up the patoot.
The agency, backed by Democrats in the Senate, wants to increase the security fee everyone pays with a ticket from $2.50 a flight. to $5.00 per one-way ticket. A total of $10.00 would be added to round-trip tickets.
Because getting violated, felt up, molested, bullied and abused in every way possible is just not enough. Now you need to also get mugged in an era when the airlines are screwing you for every conceivable fee from checked baggage to peanuts.
At what point will the public say, “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH?”
…is after us EVVVILLLLLLL pro-liberty folks for daring to try to win as many delegate slots to the Republican National Convention here in Virginia. Yankee neocon nutcase Pamela Geller has the story for us:
Earlier this week, I described a looming threat to the Republican party, the covert and overt Ron Paul putsch (read it here). James Lafferty, SIOA National Director and chairman of VAST (Virginia Anti-Sharia Task Force), files this report, exclusive to Atlas:
The Republican Party here in the battleground state of Virginia is getting a heaping dose of Ron Paul’s “delegate” strategy which includes stealth campaigns in the little-noticed interparty races for delegate to the Tampa national convention.
Conservative activists in other states recognize this as a template of Paul stealth campaigns in their communities.
In the past three months, particularly in Northern Virginia, Paul’s followers or “paulbots” have run for party offices without naming their candidate. Delegates for Romney or one of the others often included that identification in their introductions and speeches. But in phone banking on behalf of “Paulistas” no one volunteers who is the sponsor of the call and only begrudgingly admit to their affiliation with Paul when pressed hard.
When cornered, Paul operatives emphasize Paul’s small government and sound currency policies. But few are willing to discuss his isolationist views on foreign policy and none will discuss his dismissal of concerns about shariah in America and the safety of Israel except to bristle at the question.
The race for delegates are often what party leaders call “beauty contests” based more on personal relationships rather than policy considerations or political credentials.
Endorsements of the Paul delegate candidates come from various “conservative” groups which seem to spring up like mushrooms with websites but no phone numbers or names.
The Paul insurgents have had an open field because the Virginia GOP, like many other state political parties, is schletoric with the exception of the Ken Cuccinelli vote-growing machine.
And the matter is complicated by the GOP’s reliance on tea party groups to do much of the grassroots heavy-lifting. Paul supporters with tea party ties use their positions to push the stealth slate of Paul delegate candidates. Where the political landscape favors institutional party candidates , Paul tea party people promote actively the most inexperienced delegate candidates because they believe they will be “easily rolled and controlled” if Paul gets any traction in Tampa.
Their rationale is that even if Romney wins on the first ballot (which all but a few say is likely) a substantial Paul cadre of delegates will have a role in the VP selection and other major decisions on the future of the party.
If the unforeseen occurs, the Paul campaign wants to be prepared to seize the nomination and advance Paul initiatives like shuttering the IRS and imposing a gold standard.
Compared to the straight-shooter national image of Paul, the local vote-getting operations rely heavily on disguise and deception.
It always make sense when talking to a telephone pollster to ask “ who is paying for this poll?” but in this campaign cycle, it is important to know something about people who are asking you to vote for a specific person.
Paul and his followers have taken the old saying about “the illusion of power is power” to an extreme and are offering voters a shabbily-constructed illusion at a time when America has a desperate need for substantive leadership.
First off, who is this clown from the “Virginia Anti-Sharia Task Force” and what is his agenda? This sounds like some guy sending direct mail fundraising pieces from his basement, trying to scare old people. Second, this guy is a liar. Our delegate candidates in both the 8th and the 11th were very blunt about who they were and what they were about. Matt Burrow, who got elected as a delegate in the 8th at the convention, talked about his work with Campaign For Liberty at both unit committee meetings and the convention itself! This guy, much like Geller, sees mooselimbs behind every tree, rock, and bush. He’s just a neocon upset that his Big Government Conservatism message doesn’t wash any more.
