Peter King: Halt donations to
House GOP

Politico, by Kevin Robillard

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 1/2/2013 3:40:33 PM

New York Republican Rep. Peter King went to war with his Republican colleagues on Wednesday after leaders spiked a Hurricane Sandy relief bill, calling on New Yorkers to stop all donations to GOP House members. “These Republicans have no problem finding New York when they’re out raising millions of dollars,” King said on Fox News. “They’re in New York all the time filling their pockets with money from New Yorkers. I’m saying right now, anyone from New York or New Jersey who contributes one penny to Congressional Republicans is out of their minds. Because what they did last night

Comments:
The bill was a pork-laden disgrace. King is full of sheepdip. And the Fat Man in New Jersey should just call his pal, The Emperor Obama. They have phone service on Oahu.

There is no reason in the World that a RELIEF bill should include anything but funds for RELIEF. However, in DC, the scum are everywhere, and we all know it. This bill should be amended to delete all items not directly related to Sandy relief.

As usual, the GOP has failed to inform the public as to why they are doing anything, so the msm and the Democrats get to tell the story.

The bill for Sandy as written is filled with pork for New York. The Republicans didn´t have time to fight over this and make any changes; it was pass it or else. Now the bill will lapse and a clean bill to help Sandy victims can be written. Congressman King needs to apologize to he fellow Republicans and leave the Republican Party or stop oinking.

I live in South Florida and we have hurricanes all the time. We PREPARE for them. And it is one of the reasons our home owners insurance always skyrockets. From everything I have read, NY and NJ ignored all the warnings over the years to be prepared for this. Now they want the rest of the country to bail them out. Just like Louisiana and California. So no, no and no.

King doesn´t mind if we add $40 billion extra to the national debt as long as he gets his 20 or so billion. Even if approved it would take months and months to start showing up so it like hurry up and wait.

NY and NJ should have their own money to spend on this but it all goes to the unions and welfare crowd. So sit down and shut up.Nobody threw a tantrum for Nashville when they had their flood.The community got together and dug out with their own money.

Its hard to care if jersey and new york aren´t made whole by the taxpayers. The unions will charge 5x the average for their shoddy work, and the politicians will pocket what´s left.

If they really need more money, let them raise taxes. That´s their answer for everything, isn´t it?

On Special Report (Fox News) tonight there was a report on the Sandy aid bill stating estimates indicated only about 8 billion would be needed this year for actual damage. More could be added next year if needed. Many unnecessary add ons were put in this bill to bring the total up to 60 billion. The conclusion of the report was Speaker Boehner had saved the taxpayers 52 billion by not calling for a vote on this aid last night. The vote will occur on Friday.

I agree with #2. There is no reason whatsoever for a relief bill to contain any pork whatsoever. This bill has more dollars devoted to pork than relief. Strip out the pork, then pass it. If demonrats don´t like it, too damn bad.

King & Christie should spend their energy on removing the greedy pork from the so called Sandy bill instead of trashing their own party. ....or better yet give us a break quit & go home.

Half a century ago, the Beatles were really busy. After Beatlemania broke out in 1963, they played more than 1,200 shows, recorded 12 LPs and appeared in five movies. Some followed the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, or admitted to trying acid, or spurned royal honors, or claimed to be more popular than Jesus. Then, in 1970, they broke up. But that didn’t end Beatlemania. In 1976, “Saturday Night Live” producer Lorne Michaels appealed to the band on the air, offering them $3,000 to reunite. Not long before he was killed, John Lennon had to endure

Phil Mickelson started the day with a 20/1 chance to win the Open Championship, but a remarkable charge on the back nine at Muirfield secured fifth major championship victory. While Tiger Woods and the rest of the leaders were faltering, Mickelson birdied four of his last six holes, including the 18th, to build an insurmountable lead. His final round 66 ties the best score of any player all week long. After draining a birdie putt on the 18th hole, Mickelson walked off the green and embraced his family, making for one of the greatest photos of the summer.

At this point in the long holiday weekend, I’m ready to kick back and discuss immigration reform. It’s a very important issue. Plus, I have found it difficult to keep a dinner party conversation going with the farm bill. Here’s one of the good things about the immigration bill that passed the Senate last week. It reminds us of how things used to work in Congress, back in the day when the two parties would get together and make big messy deals that we all complained about. Which now, of course, we miss. Come back, big messy deals! All is forgiven.

Jeb Bush to House lawmakers:

Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor and a potential 2016 presidential candidate, says that House Republicans should improve and then pass the immigration bill that passed out of the Democrat-led Senate last week. “No Republican would vote for legislation that stifled economic growth, promoted illegal immigration, added to the welfare rolls, and failed to ensure a secure border,” they said. Mr. Bush and Clint Bollick, co-authors of “Immigration Wars,” said in a Wall Street Journal opinion article that GOP lawmakers would sell out basic conservative principles by opposing the bill.

A Republican Case for
Immigration Reform

Posted By: jackson- 7/1/2013 8:55:52 AM     Post Reply
Now that the Senate has passed comprehensive immigration reform, the action shifts to the House of Representatives. Here the GOP´s informal "Hastert Rule" requires Speaker John Boehner to have majority support among Republicans before he will bring legislation to the floor for a vote. That means an immigration bill will need a far greater share of Republican House members than the Senate version received (where fewer than one-third of Republicans voted "aye"). This is a tall order. But it is one to which House Republicans should respond. No Republican would vote for legislation that stifled economic growth, promoted illegal immigration

Debating the nature of marriage

This is a significant moment in our public conversation on marriage. By ruling a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional and choosing not to rule on the question of same-sex marriage in California, the Supreme Court essentially declared that the federal government may not set parameters for the definition of marriage but, instead, must leave that power to the states. This means that the important debate about the meaning of marriage is destined to continue. Some have framed this debate in terms of “equality.” That rings with a certain American appeal. Everyone wants to be treated

DAKAR, Senegal (AP) -- President Barack Obama on Thursday praised the Supreme Court´s ruling on same-sex marriage as a "victory for American democracy" but clashed with his African host over gay rights in a sign of how far the movement has to go internationally. Obama said recognition of gay unions in the United States should cross state lines and that equal rights should be recognized universally. It was his first chance to expand on his thoughts about the ruling, which was issued Wednesday as he flew to Senegal, one of many African countries that outlaw homosexuality.

The Same-Sex Marriage Rulings

Today’s two Supreme Court rulings involving same-sex marriage were a huge and gratifying victory in the long struggle to end government-sanctioned discrimination against gay and lesbian Americans. It is sad, this deep into the national conversation about equal rights, that five justices were not willing to recognize a constitutional right for all couples to marry, regardless of the state where they live or their genders. But the momentum for marriage equality seems unstoppable and such a breakthrough will eventually come. The first ruling struck down the central provisions of the Defense of Marriage Act, the odious 1996 federal law

The remarks — which the Vatican spokesman did not deny and the participants at the private audience confirmed — appeared to be part of an effort by the pope to take on the entrenched interests in the Vatican

WASHINGTON — U.S. officials insisted Tuesday that extraordinary security measures for nearly two dozen diplomatic posts were to thwart an “immediate, specific threat,” a claim questioned by counterterrorism experts, who note that the alert covers an incongruous set of nations from the Middle East to an island off the southern coast of Africa. Analysts don’t dispute the Obama administration’s narrative that it’s gleaned intelligence on a plot involving al Qaida’s most active affiliate, the Yemen-based Arabian Peninsula branch.

Critics of the president are convinced that Barack Obama will do lasting damage to the U.S. I doubt it. Obama came to power in the third year of large Democratic congressional majorities. In his first referendum, he lost the House and he may soon lose the Senate; in other words, there followed a somewhat normal reaction against a majority party. Obama’s popularity rating is well below 50%, despite an obsequious media and a brilliantly negative billion-dollar campaign that long ago turned Mitt Romney into a veritable elevator-using, equestrian-marrying, canine-hating monster.

In a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month. The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia´s harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow´s stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights. Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.

A poll released Friday by Public Policy Polling found that Alaska voters would pick former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the state´s former Republican governor, Sarah Palin, if the two women were to face off in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton led with 49 percent in the hypothetical match-up, with Palin at 40 percent, a nine-point gap. As of July 3, Republicans comprised 27 percent of the state´s registered voters and Democrats made up just 14 percent. The last time Alaskans opted for the Democrats´ presidential candidate was in 1964. Clinton trails five other hypothetical GOP candidates –

Over the last week, there has been a lot of buzz about a supposed CIA angle to the Benghazi story. Specifically, it has been alleged that a substantial number of CIA employees were on the ground in Benghazi, carrying out a mission that involved rounding up Libyan weapons and transferring them to rebels in Syria. Further, it has been reported that the CIA has leaned on its employees not to cooperate with Congressional investigations or the media, and it has been suggested that the CIA’s role in Benghazi may be related to the al Qaeda

Speaking from Egypt Tuesday night, where they are hoping to broker a peaceful transition period between the country’s ouster of former President Mohamed Morsi to its next phase of nascent democracy, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham warned that concessions on both sides needed to begin immediately or Egypt’s government would “fail.” “I didn’t know it was this bad,” Graham said. “These folks are just days, weeks away from all out bloodshed.” “There is only one way that we can bring about a peaceful Egypt, and that is a process of negotiation and reconciliation between major players,” McCain said.
