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.

When King is talking about Muslim infiltration he´s crazy. Now he´s the bright shining star. Oh, Politico. You show your panties.

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.

That´s true about them coming to NY looking for money.

The major Wall Street corporation where I worked for many years would have regular visits from various political figures looking for "support."

King, Schumer and Gilliland show their true colors. Must be in NY´ers genes. And, yes, as is usual, the GOP doesn´t say anything regarding the pork being the real issue that is holding up the relief.

Perhaps Rep. King´s anger would be more justly directed at those who loaded the unrelated pork onto a "disaster relief bill," which doomed its passage in the House.

Peter is a jerk - met him several times in NY at meetings upstate. I am sure there is lots of pork in what they are asking and getting - yes, I feel sorry for them, but we have been through tornados, had damage and escaped floods. Did not ask the government for anything.

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.

I think #18 is pretty close to being right. I cannot believe Peter King is now a whiner in the mold of democrats.

It just makes me sick to my stomach. Not a one of them has any desire to do anything other than stick their hands in other people´s pockets.

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.

Voting against Bushes is an act of love
Daily Caller, by W. James Antle III    Original Article
Posted By: jackson- 4/18/2014 8:23:53 AM     Post Reply
A popular online dictionary offers four definitions for the word “bushed.” The first is “overgrown with bushes.” The second is “exhausted, tired out.” The third is a Canadian colloquialism meaning “mentally unbalanced as a result of prolonged residence in a sparsely inhabited region.” Each of these definitions seems to describe the Republican Party’s feeling about the Bush family. If that’s not true and the GOP nominates Jeb Bush for president — the third Bush since 1988 — then perhaps the fourth definition applies: “unable to find one’s direction; lost; confused.” There’s a case to be made that George H.W. Bush is an underrated president,

America’s top selling non-fiction book has much to teach about Wall Street malfeasance, but it also offers an intriguing perspective on diversity. The hero of Michael Lewis’ “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt” is Brad Katsuyama, a Canadian-born investment banker for the Royal Bank Canada who transfers to RBC’s New York office. When he gets to the United States, the book explains, Katsuyama not only ultimately uncovers how high frequency trading is corrupting the stock market, he also becomes aware of his minority status for the first time in his life. “In the United States, Brad also noticed, he was expected to

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. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has started, over the past few weeks, to ratchet up talk of a potential presidential run in 2016. If that´s the case, the reaction he received this weekend at a gathering of conservatives in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire was not what he was looking for. Bush served as a punch line for — of all people — Donald Trump. "You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day," Trump said during his speech at the Freedom Summit, hosted by the conservative groups Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity.

Barbara Bush was right when she pooh-poohed son Jeb´s interest in running for the White House in 2016. Forget political dynasties -- Bushes, Kennedys and, yes, Clintons -- the former first lady told NBC last year. "We´ve had enough Bushes." She also said: "There are a lot of great families, and it´s not just four families or whatever." Listen to your mother, Jeb.Heed her words well, Hillary. My sweetest dream for 2016 would be for a bipartisan pact: that 2016 will not be a sequel to the 1992 Bush-Clinton faceoff. Is it a deal, Dems? I won´t vote for Bush if you

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. — With eyes increasingly on him, Jeb Bush signaled on Sunday the kind of campaign he would mount if he runs for president, one arguing against ideological purity tests while challenging party orthodoxy on issues like immigration and education. Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of

In his Kremlin defense of Russia’s annexation of Crimea, Vladimir Putin, even before he began listing the battles where Russian blood had been shed on Crimean soil, spoke of an older deeper bond. Crimea, said Putin, “is the location of ancient Khersones, where Prince Vladimir was baptized. His spiritual feat of adopting Orthodoxy predetermined the overall basis of the culture, civilization and human values that unite the peoples of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus Russia is a Christian country, Putin was saying.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
