Schumer vs Obama on Iran Nuke Deal – Open Thread

The senior, Democrat senator from the State of New York, Charles Schumer, is bucking against Barack Obama on the Iran nuclear deal. The White House is playing down the defection, for obvious reasons. Still, while Obama has yet another multi-million dollar vacation on Martha′s Vineyard, he cannot escape trouble. Things were bad enough as Iran′s supreme leader published a new book calling for the destruction of Israel and the United States just after the deal was inked. Then the story broke about how Iran and the UN have secret side deals that are part of the main agreement. So secret that apparently even John Kerry does not know all of the details. Now Schumer is going public against it, and he is the leading contender to replace Harry Reid as the top Democrat senator.

Bye Bye Boehner: Saying Goodbye to the Champion We Never Knew

Conservatives cheered in 2014 when Republicans gained control of the U.S. Senate and strengthened their hold on the U.S. House of Representatives in a monumental mid-term whooping of the Democratic Party.  I certainly remember grinning happily as race after race went to the Republicans.  “Finally,” we thought, “the near-daily erosion of our country’s present, our children’s futures, and the values which made this country great is over!”  Our jubilation was short-lived, however, as it quickly became strikingly apparent that the leaders of the two chambers of Congress – Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) in the House and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in the Senate – were not the strong fortress wall that we hoped would halt (or at the very least slow) Obama’s and the Democratic Party’s liberal agenda. Instead, the past two years have demonstrated that neither “leader” is a fortress wall; even calling them a “gate” is generous as neither leader has demonstrated any intestinal fortitude to stand up for the conservative principles on which they campaigned and which helped send them back to Congress. For the past year-and-a-half, we have watched the Republican leadership in the House and Senate vote to give Obama and the Democrats most everything they have asked for with little fight and then bemoan their own perceived powerlessness.

Delayed till Tuesday – Senate NSA Spying Vote

Rand Paul may be pleased, but the U.S. Senate will vote on NSA spying program tomorrow. The Patriot Act provisions which allow the federal government to capture and store in bulk the meta-data from all phone calls and Internet use did expire at midnight. Rand Paul vowed for a showdown to block future NSA surveillance and he did succeed. A preliminary vote failed to pass. So it is back to the drawing board, most likely adopting a version of the House-written ′USA Freedom Act′, which sets new guidelines on bulk collection of meta-data. Under the House bill, telecom companies would keep and store the meta-data and the government would face additional restrictions on acquiring access via the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, or FISC.

Rand Paul ‘Sunday, Sunday, Sunday’ Video

While not as wild and crazy as the #KungFury movie, the new Rand Paul ′Sunday, Sunday, Sunday′ video is worth while watching. Done in a ′tongue-in-cheek′ style of a wrestling match, Rand Paul is promoting his big showdown against Barack Obama, Ted Cruz and Lindsay Graham over renewing the Patriot Act and NSA spying provisions. Some critics say that the video, made by Paul′s America′s Liberty PAC, has gone too far, making light of such a serious issue. But I say what difference does it make? Paul′s video might be the ticket to win younger, ignorant voters.

GOP Senators Cave on Obama Secret Trade Deal

On Friday, the US Senate passed a bill giving Barack Obama additional ′fast-track′ powers in negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. The bill includes provisions blocking transparency such that secret elements may be part of the agreement. Many see this as Republican senators caving into White House demands. But not everything went Obama′s way as a human-trafficking provision was also included, which may cause Malaysia to be left out of the 11-nation trade deal. They may still be part of the TPP if they can show they are making some progress in reducing slave labor in their country.

House, Senate passes DHS bill, funds for 1 week

Late Friday night, as a stop-gap measure, the House and Senate passes a DHS bill which will fund the Department of Homeland Security for 1 week. The DHS was to run out of money at midnight, which would have led to some 30,000 of over 200,000 employees to be furloughed. The Senate earlier had passed a ′clean bill′ which would have funded the DHS through September, but the House is standing firm thus far on attempting to block the Barack Obama blanket amnesty executive order. Naturally, the White House wants the Senate bill as the Obama administration believes it will be able to overturn a federal judge′s ruling against the executive action on illegal immigration. Nancy ′Koo-Koo-Clock′ Pelosi supports the Senate Democrats and RINOs like Susan Collins and Mitch McConnell against John Boehner, who seems to be trying to be in favor of upholding and defending the US Constitution.

Back To Work – 114th Congress Starts Today

Its back to work today on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC as the 114th Congress begins its first session. Already, the Liberal Media is in panic mode, warning of how Republicans are ″scary″ and trying to tell GOP Conservatives how to behave and vote. The Media moans and groans about how Barack Obama must now contend with the upstart Republicans whom have been handed the reigns of power in the House and Senate by the American people. As if all of those whom had voted last November were enemy invaders. But, alas, the real question is how will John Boehner and Mitch McConnell satisfy the voters and stop Obama in his tracks from further harming the nation?

Did Senate Democrats or CIA Misled Public on Torture?

One of the B-I-G stories this week was the report released by Senate Democrats on how the CIA misled the public on torture. Led by California Senator Dianne Feinstein, the Senate Intelligence Committee issued a scathing document, hundreds of pages long and costing some $50 Million dollars condemning the Central Intelligence Agency usage of water-boarding and other means of torture. However, as many critics, including CIA Director John Brennan point out, there was no ′torture′. The ′Enhanced Interrogation Techniques′, or EIT, were deemed as perfectly legal. Furthermore, the report′s investigators, mainly Democrat senatorial staffers, never interviewed any key members of the CIA, Bush administration or even CIA field agents. Instead, they ′cherry-picked′ emails and cable communications. So, who is misleading whom?
