Senate Republicans Fearful
of Post-Nuclear Senate

National Review Online, by Jonathan Strong

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/21/2013 4:23:57 PM

Appearing shell-shocked by the Harry Reid’s abrupt move to pass the “nuclear option” through the Senate, Republicans there issued ominous warnings to reporters outside the chamber. “When you start, it’s like wars — there’s no end to this. I don’t know where it goes,” says Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. “In my view this is the most important and most dangerous restructuring of Senate rules since Thomas Jefferson wrote them at the beginning of our country,” Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee says. Democrats have been open about wanting the change so President Obama’s regulations, executive actions and other unilateral decisions enjoy a

Our Republican leadership is fearful more often than not. Which is unfortunate. Of course they´re shell-shocked. They would never expect their good friends, the militant Left, to ever, ever, ever pull a fast one.

Which is exactly why we need to elect some less weak-kneed republicans. The real problem is the republicans from get-go have sat on the side lines hoping someone would take up the fight for them which is why they end up looking stupid. I´m so sick of the entire lot its ridiculous

We are a minority in the Senate, so there is little even strong-kneed Republican Senators can do. We´ll have to live with it and then take back the Senate a year from now. Then, we will show Harry Reid what payback is like.

FTA:"Questioned repeatedly in the press conference, McConnell wouldn’t show his hand. “I don’t think this is a time to be talking about reprisal. I think it’s a time to be sad about what’s been done to the United States Senate. The greatest deliberative body in the world,” he said."

What a complete and utter fool. You were just given the biggest shaft in American history and that´s the best you could come up with?

It is also worth noting that Mr. Reach-across-the-aisle McCain has not made his usual dash to the microphone.

I wish you guys could feel as much revulsion for Democrats as you do for Republicans. Maybe then we could get a big turnou at election time.

Headline says they´re fearful, opening sentence says they´re shell shocked. Great. The US is firmly in the grip of a radical left dictatorship because it suited both political parties. Trembling McConnell won´t predict a reversal even if he gets the majority. But either way he says nothing can be done unless he has the majority. Which is his standard answer. Fine, then go home, refund your salary. All Republican Senators should go home and only return if GOP wins the Senate.

What will happen is that the Democrats will now push through a lot of extreme liberal Obama nominees into the courts and the bureaucracy.

The Democrats will then wait to see if the Republicans win the 2014 election and take control of the Senate. If the Republicans do win, on the last day of this particular Senate session, Harry Reid will have what amounts to an epiphany on the rules change issue and with the last vote, the Democrats on a straight party line vote will change the rules back to what they were before today, thus greatly benefiting what would be a Democrat minority in the next Senate session.

#bashing Palin instead of liberals,

You don´t have a lot of self-awareness, do you? So what you´re saying is, you can attack Palin and other conservatives, of which I am one, 24/7 constantly, ad nauseum during the entire election cycle, put up a liberal leaning candidate who is all over the place on the issues, and then demand we vote for your guy while spewing venom and joining the Left in attacking conservatives at the same time? Really?

After voting in lockstep with the Republican leadership my entire life, after seeing the tiny cowards allow Palin get butchered by the Left and even joining in (that´s you!), I dialed in Palin´s name and I will do it again in 2016 if need be. My conscience would not allow me to do otherwise.

I truly don´t believe Romney would have been any better than Obama. He governed in Mass. in the same spirit as Obama with Romney care and same sex marriage with his lame excuses. What he believes in changes depending on the audience. We also know now that he admits to assaulting an unpopular boy at school with the purpose of humiliating him. His public persona never did ring true and this incident is an insight into the character, and I don´t think he´s changed with new reports of casually insulting people walking by his staff.

And his vile online minions were the rat droppings to top it off, I´m sure you turned a lot of voters off with your spite, malice, and hatred of conservatives who have toed the line their entire lives.

And you know what, you don´t own my vote. How dare you think my vote is yours to command. It belongs to me. It is the only voice I have besides commenting on these threads. I will vote my conscience.

You have yourself to blame for Obama.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J – An Atlantic City casino is suing a big-time gambler, claiming he won $9.6 million in a card-cheating scheme in baccarat. The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against Phillip Ivey Jr., considered one of the best poker players in the world. The lawsuit alleges Ivey and an associate exploited a defect in cards made by a Kansas City manufacturer that enabled them to sort and arrange good cards in baccarat. The technique gave him an unfair advantage on four occasions between April and October 2012, the casino asserted in its lawsuit. The

Microsoft finally killed off support for Windows XP this week, but the company decided to wax nostalgic about one of the most memorable parts of the operating system—that serene, hilly landscape that serves as the default XP desktop background. In a video released on the day the tech company officially ended support for the 13-year-old software, Microsoft interviewed the man who took the photograph, called “Bliss.” Charles O’Rear, a former National Geographic photographer, said he was driving through Napa Valley, just north of San Francisco, when he decided to stop and snap a photo of the idyllic countryside (on an

Brussels- Until recently, members of the Russian delegation to NATO were free to roam at will about the Western alliance´s headquarters here on the outskirts of the Belgian capital. The Russians had an awkward habit of listening intently to others´ conversations at the cafeteria, yet their presence was tolerated in the name of dialogue. Not anymore. In response to Vladimir Putin´s annexation of Crimea, NATO earlier this month suspended all practical cooperation with Moscow. Now most of the 70 or so Russian personnel enjoy about the same level of access to the alliance headquarters as journalists. It´s a small but significant sign

Cancellation of Tomahawk Puts
American Navy On Perilous Course

The Obama Administration will be adding insult with its cancellation of production of the Navy’s Tomahawk and Hellfire missile programs. These decisions followed by just weeks the decision to reclassify two hospital ships, 10 coastal patrol craft and a ferry boat as “capital warships.” The Tomahawk decision is particularly troubling, as the cruise missile has for years been the workhorse of presidents seeking to deliver limited, precise, stand-off military responses. During the 2011 Libyan crisis, the Navy flung 220 Tomahawks in support of operations. We launched more than 1,100 at Kosovo. About 100 of these missiles are used in an average

My American Enterprise Institute colleague Nick Eberstadt provides a reminder that the federal government has been a pioneer in producing useful and reliable statistics. It began with the Constitution´s unprecedented and, in Eberstadt´s words, “truly revolutionary” requirement that a census of population be conducted at regular intervals and that the number of representatives each state would have in the House of Representatives would be based on it. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the quality and quantity of government statistics has been deteriorating. Eberstadt decries in particular the government’s “hastily devised ‘federal poverty measure’ unveiled in 1965,” which

On top of rising premiums, Obamacare taxes are adding hundreds of dollars per year onto customers’ costs, according to new study from the American Action Forum. Those who braved the health-care law’s exchanges will have to pay an extra $354 on average in 2014, reports the free-market D.C.-based think tank, just due to seven taxes included in Obamacare. The vast majority of the country covered by employer-sponsored health insurance will be forced to pay a somewhat lower tab of $196 to cover the taxes. Those with self-funded employer-sponsored insurance are exempt from several of the largest culprits and will have the lowest

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling.

The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation.

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony.

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.
