McCain to GOP: Don´t Shut Down Gov´t
Breitbart, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 9/17/2013 7:48:22 AM

On Monday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) urged House Republicans to not shut down the federal government. “I hope my colleagues in the House who believe we need to shut down the government will understand that that’s not want the American people want,” McCain said on CNN. “They hate government, but they don’t want it to stop functioning.” President Barack Obama and Republicans have to agree on another resolution to fund the government before the current resolution expires on September 30. As The Hill notes, at least a third of House Republicans want the Republican leadership to use the next round of budget

Liar! Helping the lame steam push the lie that defunding ObamaCare is the whole government.

On the contrary - it´s just a good start!

When McCain "advises": doing the opposite is often worth considering. Which side is he on, anyway?

The McCain test. If McCain is for something, then I am probably against it.

Hmmmmm. Sounds pretty much the same as the lib test.

Coservtives have no plans to shut down the government. If the Senate and president refuse House funding plans, it is they who will "shut down the government." Drilling this point home might even eventually enlighten a bit of the MSM.

What difference would it make, John? The Stimulus was among other things supposed to fix our infrastructure so that industry could pick us up out of this mess.

Instead, the Obama Administration gave the money to friends, allies and persons overseas (and I suspect, lined their own pockets).

In our area there are around 7000 bridges, some of them critical transportation access portals that never saw a dime of that money. Many now have weight limits, some are closed.

What good has government done lately, John? If it shut down, would we care?

He´s not a full blown liberal socialist nutcase like the rest of the democrats, but he is far enough along that he works against his own party most of the time now.

McCain is a traitor to Americans. He lies about the intent of his fellow Republicans who are trying to save us from Obamacare.
The plan is to fund everything BUT Obamacare.
Then the ball is in Obama´s court. It will be HIS choice to shut down the government, which by the way, has been shut down at least a half dozen times before.

It seems John just can´t grasp the concept that Congress or the nation can say "no" when a President really insists.*

His behavior may have been shaped by his military background, and the similar background of his parents, and of his grandparents. But that is my speculation and worth what it costs.

IOW I no longer care what governs McCain´s reasoning. Whether it is senility, stupidity, duplicity, or obedience training I want him gone.

* The military doesn´t say "no" to a President. McCain may think everyone else lives that way.

The guy had a series of ministrokes back when he was running for President and never recovered.

He´s had more of them since then, and, if he´s lucky, he´ll have even more of them and survive them.

But the thinking is gone. He´s forgotten how the Constitution works for example. He forgot any principles he ever had.

Everyone who listens and or reads knows that the Republican opposition to Obamacare does not want to shut down government. They merely want to defund (take away the money from) Obamacare. Is that clear? The Democrats say, they (the Democrats) will shut down the government even though the Republicans authorize enough money to fund all other government functions.

Jeb Bush’s optimism school
Washingotn Post, by E.J. Dionne JR    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/17/2014 12:09:38 AM     Post Reply
The Republican Party faces a long-term challenge in presidential elections because it is defining itself as a gloomy enclave, a collection of pessimists who fear what our country is becoming and where it is going. The party’s hope deficit helps explain why there’s a boomlet for Jeb Bush, a man who dares to use the word “love” in a paragraph about illegal immigrants. The flurry doesn’t mean that the former Florida governor is even running for president, let alone that he can win. But Bush is being taken seriously because his approach to politics is so different from what’s on offer

If Hillary Clinton runs for president, she’ll be getting a lot of help from Wall Street. But her friends and confidants there tell me she truly hasn’t decided yet. So why is she hesitating? The big reason, according to these sources, has to do with the dude who occupies the Oval Office now. Barack Obama’s rapidly disintegrating presidency — and the chance it will get even worse — is Clinton’s top worry these days as she weighs whether she’ll run, and can win, in 2016, these folks say.

If Jeb Bush decides to run for president, he’ll have to defend his family’s controversial political name. But more immediate family concerns might keep him from running at all.Republican donors and operatives are chattering about Bush’s publicity-shy wife, so worried she isn’t on board with a 2016 White House run that they’re urging people in the family’s orbit to make the case. Columba Bush has long been deeply averse to the spotlight, especially after an embarrassing encounter with U.S. Customs while her husband was still in office.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which has launched an unprecedented effort to defend vulnerable pro-business incumbents in Republican primaries this year, is enlisting a big gun to boost its favored candidate in Idaho. In a new Chamber ad, former presidential nominee Mitt Romney touts his support of Idaho Rep. Mike Simpson, an establishment Republican facing a difficult May 20 primary. Romney endorsed Simpson last year, but this is his first foray into television ads in the 2014 cycle. “You can take it from me,” Romney says in the spot. “The conservative choice for Congress is Mike Simpson.”

He’s from New Jersey. Sure, Gillespie has lived for more than two decades in Virginia’s Fairfax County, where he’s raised a family, gone

After a stretch of anemic fundraising, the Karl Rove-backed American Crossroads super PAC raised more cash in March than it did during the previous 14 months combined, according to summaries of campaign filings released Monday. The GOP establishment´s favorite super PAC raised almost $5.2 million last month and had more than $6.3 million in the bank as of March 31, according to the report summary. That cash will be used as the outside group tries to help Republicans pick up the six seats they need to win control of the Senate.

George H.W. Bush:

There are very few genuinely new moments in American politics. Ronald Reagan´s election in 1980 was one of them. President Obama´s triumph in 2008 another. Both were transformative elections, presidencies and men. And both led to parties that struggled for a voice after their defining leader left the scene. George H.W. Bush was a safe and reliable choice for the GOP in 1988: a longtime Washington hand with a golden resume and a seemingly endless and loyal list of supporters and donors. Lots of folks didn´t like him, of course, inside his own party, inside the Democrats, inside the media and outside

April 15 is a hard day for many, as their annual federal tax bill comes due. But it could have been worse. According to a new report, President Obama has sought 442 tax increases since taking office, though most have died because of congressional opposition. Having included 93 new taxes in his fiscal 2015 budget, the anti-tax Americans for Tax Reform reviewed his proposals since his 2009 Inauguration to determine just how tax-friendly the president has been. Their conclusion: He´s very friendly. "History tells us what Obama was able to do. This list reminds us of what Obama wanted to do," said Grover

Washington - As millions of Americans race to meet Tuesday´s tax deadline, their chances of getting audited are lower than they have been in years. Budget cuts and new responsibilities are straining the Internal Revenue Service´s ability to police tax returns. This year, the IRS will have fewer agents auditing returns than at any time since at least the 1980s. Taxpayer services are suffering, too, with millions of phone calls to the IRS going unanswered.

A Greenwich, Conn., estate called Copper Beech Farm has sold for $120 million, making it the most expensive recorded home sale in the U.S. Priced as high as $190 million, the 50.5-acre estate centers on an 1890s French Renaissance-style home of 13,519 square feet that sits on 4,000 feet of waterfront. The price surpasses private-equity chief Tully Friedman´s $117.5-million sale last year of a nearly 9,000-square-foot home in Woodside, Calif. Named for copper beech trees on the site, the estate in Greenwich was sold by timber tycoon John Rudey. Reached by way of a 1,800-foot-long driveway, the main house features a three-story paneled

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast.
