Elizabeth Warren rebuts Karl Rove

Warren knows the importance of fighting back against ridiculous right-wing attacks. 

That’s why she responded right away on MSNBC’s Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell when Rove made the Orwellian claim that Warren, of all people, was too close to Wall Street.

Warren made clear that she was exposing Wall Street’s wrongdoing while Rove was “part of the inner circle” of the Bush Administration that handed out bailouts to Wall Street with “no strings attached.”

To take on Wall Street, Warren will need strong allies in Congress. So on the above link, you can also donate to bold progressive candidates who promise to stand strongly with Warren.

Thanks for being a bold progressive.

Reid spokesman: Senate won’t return if House kills payroll tax compromise By Alexander Bolton


News from The Hill:

Reid spokesman: Senate won’t return if House kills payroll tax compromise
By Alexander Bolton

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) does not plan to bring the Senate back in session next week, even if the House rejects a compromise bill to extend the payroll tax holiday, said his spokesman.

When asked whether Reid would call senators back to town next week if House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) refuses to schedule a vote or the House defeats a two-month extension of the payroll tax cut, Adam Jentleson, Reid’s spokesman, said: “No.”

“There is absolutely no reason the House should not pass the overwhelming bipartisan compromise passed by the Senate,” said Jentleson.

CONGRESS REPEALS “DON’T ASK, DON’T TELL”

“We send these young people into combat,” said McCain, R-Ariz. “We think
they’re mature enough to fight and die. I think they’re mature enough to make a
judgment on who they want to serve with and the impact on their battle
effectiveness.”

“Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being present I should use
sharpness, according to the power which the Lord hath given me to edification,
and not to destruction.”2 Corinthians 13:10
(KJV)

“And we know that in
all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called
according to His purpose.” -Romans 8:28

Don’t They Know We Are Crying?


THIS POST IS FROM A YEAR AND A DAY AGO. DOES IT PAIN YOUR HEART TO REMEMBER WHAT THE 112th CONGRESS HAS NOT DONE TO IMPROVE OUR HUMAN CONDITION? WILL DEMOCRATS CONTINUE TO ADVOCATE FOR THE POOR AND THE MIDDLE-CLASS? DO YOU STILL HAVE HOPE? DO YOU STILL THINK THAT CHANGE WILL COME? HAVE THE SAD RECORD OF OUR POLITICIANS REVEALED TO YOU THAT “WE CAN’T WAIT?” YOUR NUBMER ONE RESOLUTION FOR THE YEAR 2012 IS TO ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOUR. MAKE RESOLUTION NUMBER TWO TO JOIN THE FIGHT TO RECLAIM AMERICA FROM REPUBLICAN “POLITICS AS USUAL” AND MAKE GOVERNMENT WORK FOR THE PEOPLE AGAIN. THROW OFF POLITICIANS WHO ARE IN LEAGUE WITH LOBBYISTS AND SPECIAL INTERESTS TO THE DETRIMENT OF OUR WONDERFUL NATION. AND, RESOLUTION NUMBER THREE IS TO WITNESS TO EACH OTHER THAT GOD IS ALIVE AND ON THE SIDE OF WHAT IS GOOD IN AMERICA!

2:23am, 12/17/10. I am watching the repeat of “Countdown” on MSNBC after watching “The Last Word.”  For days I have listened to smart men in the media discuss the dysfunction in Congress, especially, The US Senate. It is so sad. Archaic, historical and unfair rules in the Senate allow REPUBLICANS to delay and prevent that body from doing its work. Yes, the Omnibus Bill should not have passed chock full of earmarks. REPUBLICANS VOTED TO BAN EARMARKS…WHICH USED TO BE CALLED BY IT’S MORE DESCRIPTIVE NAME: PORK! Yes, days after making a statement on the awful practice (in many cases), the bill to fund the government got loaded up with heretofore banned earmarks. What is going on?  Is there no honor in this House?  Things got so bad with trying to pass this bill that Senator Reid had to pull the Omnibus Bill from the floor.  Now he has to work with Senator McConnell on a “continuing resolution” which is a band-aid to keep the government from running out of money and coming to a standstill. No one there appreciates the benefits of efficiency when it comes to doing the nation’s business. Speaking of delays, Senator Reid just chided REPUBLICANS with his rant, Filibuster! Filibuster! Filibuster!” For two years REPUBLICANS have confounded the working of the Obama government with the expressed intention of ‘bringing Obama to his Waterloo.” [SC Senator Jim DeMint, why is SC always in the news for obstruction, poor education, confederate flags, etc.? From where is SC’s power in REPUBLICAN circles derived?  Is South Carolina so repressed that it cannot lead the nation in a good way?]
It came to me: politicians in DC live in a bubble.  They don’t watch television everyday to see how we, the american people, are faring.  We are hungry. We have no jobs. We are being ripped off by unscrupulous business practices. We are being evicted and foreclosed on. We see the rich and privileged thrive! Living in their DC bubble, they cannot hear America crying.  They just want to run home to their warm and secure nests to celebrate a holiday which has lost some of its meaning.
People, at the late date there is little the people can do to affect what is happening in the US Senate.  But, there is something we can do to make our broken government work again.  The situation in the dysfunctional US Senate can be changed on January 5 (only) with a vote to change the rules. Our good fortune is that this can happen with a simple majority vote.  Yes, if you get involved and press your US Senator, we can change the misuse of the filibuster and the ability to secretly stop bills from consideration. No, the filibuster should not be abolished. It should changed to only cut off debate and let bills come up for a vote. And, it is cowardly for a senator to hide from us when he stops the normal working of the Senate through the use of the “secret hold,” if I have the correct term.  In the next Congress Senator Reid will still control the flow of business in the Senate in consultation with Senator McConnell, REPUBLICAN. We should bring pressure to bear on them as well as the senators from our individual states.

DOES NEWT GINGRICH HEAR HIMSELF WHEN HE SPEAKS?


Disgraced ex-Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared on “Face the Nation” this morning. Excellent questions were asked but rather than ‘fess up’ and accept responsibility for his actions, Professor Newt talked in complicated linguistic language that only members of his elite class could follow.  His arguments may have been “factually correct.” We’ll never know because we stop listening to people who think they are so smart they can talk down to us.  BTW, Newt used the word the word “elite” today as if he is not included in the definition. Clueless ego!

Newt chuckled throughout the interview, amused by what he was saying.  He refused to comment on his strongest opponent, former Gov. Mitt Romney, as part of his “give them nice Newt campaign.”  This insincere campaign, necessary because Newt lacks funds to fight an extended, dirty campaign, hopes that he can dismiss his long past as a divisive Washington insider who was forced out his political position of being THIRD IN LINE TO THE PRESIDENCY and was punished for wrong-doing with a fine of $300,000. People, times are too serious for us not to keep in mind the truth of Newt’s campaign conspiracy illustrated by this convincing political cartoon:

Conservative Mitt Romney Tells Poor, ‘I Will Cut Your Aid and You Won’t Feel It!’ What a Cold Heart Republicans Have 2


A PRESIDENT ROMNEY WOULD PUSH FATE OF THE POOR ON THE STATES

ROMNEY FEELS THAT BANKRUPT STATES CAN HELP THE POOR BETTER THAN A PRESIDENT MITT ROMNEY

MITT ROMNEY IGNORES FACT THAT STATES HAD TO BALANCE THEIR BUDGETS BY USING FEDERAL INFRASTRUCTURE MONEY

HAS MITT ROMNEY EVER GOTTEN CLOSE TO POOR PEOPLE – EXCEPT FOR “THE HELP?”

John Boehner Appears on “Meet the Press” and Is Not ‘Pressed’ to Answer Ohioans Who Accuse Him of Corruption in Keystone XL Pipeline 1


December 18, 2011 9:20am EST

Speaker of the House, John Boehner appeared on “Meet the Press” just now. He said that one of his main goals is to obtain the American Dream “for all Americans and their grandchildren.”  But, there was no sincerity and passion like that which he exhibits for the success of the Keystone XL Pipeline which his constituents oppose and associate with Rep. Boehner and corruption. The American people should have been shown the video from Wednesday where Boehner’s staff refused his constituents entry to his local office as they were complaining to him about the pipeline.

Host, David Gregory asked a lot of questions but did not really press the Speaker on the obstruction he has enjoyed leading in the 112th Congress which he, Boehner, began in January by promising America jobs and then did not deliver. In this pleasant interview Gregory did not press Boehner to justify his obstruction to the American Jobs Act, a job creator which would pave the way to the American Dream and reward our veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan to financial hardship. Speaker Boehner is heavily involved in his special interests. John Boehner has a lot to answer to the American people on his conduct instead of making quips and running away from the camera as he did recently.

Sermon: “Making Room For Jesus”


SCRIPTURE: LUKE 2:1-7 (Key Verse #7)
TITLE/SUBJECT: MAKING ROOM FOR JESUS

“SORRY, NO VACANCY!”
– As Shared by Pastor Don Schink, (C) 2003

PURPOSE: To stress the importance of making room for Jesus in the stables of our hearts.

INTRODUCTION:

(READ LUKE 2:1-7)

ILLUS: Have you ever been traveling late at night and, upon finally deciding to turn in, found the motels had turned on their “No Vacancy” signs? “No Vacancy” signs have been an all too familiar part of my traveling routine in my earlier years. I would drive into the night, trying to make as much time as I could. I often set mileage goals and would keep going until I would reach the goals. Then, feeling that my day’s travel had been an accomplishment, I could turn in for a good night’s sleep. So, many a night, I have personally encountered all too many “No Vacancy” signs.
Little did that innkeeper, nearly 2,000 years ago, realize that he had turned away the world’s most distinguishing couple, missing out on the honor of being the place of history’s most important event, – the birth of Christ!
In reality, though, it was really OK. The innkeeper didn’t have the slightest idea as to how important that couple was. He had no computer reservation system, as they do today, by which he could have held a space for them. It was a “first-come, first-save” basis. The inn was full. So Joseph and Mary simply had to move on – to a stable. That’s OK. You see, it was all a part of God’s plan. He was completely with them. He had it all worked out. Many things happen that we don’t understand. Often, God is simply trying to get our attention so that He can work out His best for whatever it is. In today’s Scripture, it was God the Father’s will that:
JESUS’ EARTHLY JOURNAL SHOULD HAVE A HUMBLE BEGINNING.

A President Trump (GOP) Would Not Leave Iraq But Would “Take Their Oil”


Troops Returning from Iraq Prior to This Month

Well, early this morning, Gov. George W. Bush’s 9 year war ended literally with the pullout of the last 500 US troops from Iraq. Many Republicans did not want us to leave. But, we had no legal means to stay. Republicans and Democrats had made a legal agreement which determined how the war in Iraq would end. A “President Donald J. Trump,” still would not have left Iraq without ‘taking their oil.”  Also, the cost of our involvement in the Libyan conflict would have been “to take their oil.”  Donald, it’s all about money, huh? Screw our role as global defender of democracy and fairness in international politics!  Although you have no chance of ever becoming our president, you threaten that you might run as an “independent.” DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME AND PRECIOUS MONEY!  Let us remind ourselves about the true character of one, Donald J. Trump with your own words in this video:
