How Harry Reid is Destroying the Senate
Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/18/2014 5:33:18 AM

We often hear that Washington is “broken,” that Congress is “gridlocked,” and so on. While such complaints are usually imprecise and sometimes misguided, the sense that Congress is not functioning as intended is correct. Yesterday Senator Jeff Sessions delivered an important speech in which he decried the decline of the Senate under the leadership of Harry Reid. The extent to which the Senate’s traditions have been undermined to the detriment of all Americans is not generally appreciated, but the issue is a vital one. Senator Sessions said: The Senate is where the great issues of our time are supposed to be

I believe this is a Must Read.

It describes how Harry Reid and the Democrats are implementing yet another "fundamental transformation" of our country...namely how the Senate, and ultimately also the House, are being reconstructed to act as a dictatorial rubber stamp for one-party rule. This is huge.

The original intent of both houses of Congress was to have a check and balance on the President´s ability to make autocratic decisions. The peoples´ representatives from both parties were to debate proposed laws, compromise solutions with possible amendments from the minority party, and then pass bills that were agreed by both sides.

Now, however, Reid has changed such processes through procedural maneuvers that basically stack each bill with one party´s desired goals and blocks any opportunity for debate, amendments, and compromise versions. It´s essentially an unconditional surrender demand to the other party. A dictatorial decree in effect.

This cannot be allowed to stand. It´s a total perversion of the original design of Congress. It removes one of the checks and balances that previously limited the powers of the President and essentially rubber stamps his dictated programs.

We are now being ruled in a dictatorship.

The 17th amendment planted the seeds for dingy harry. Original intent was for the Senate to protect the interests of the states and the House was there to protect the population. Would the EPA have the power it has today if the 17th amendment did not exist?

Our government isn´t broken, but the politicians in it certainly are. We need people of virtue, substance, enthusiasm, and determination, to get us out of this socialist nightmare of fraud, deceit, and contemptible back-room deals.

If we´re not fighting tyranny, we´re not truly American.

"Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God."
"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government."
"The beauty of the second amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it."

I agree with #1--this should be a must read for everyone. Few know how Reid is controlling the senate and ignoring or breaking the rules (following his preezy´s lead.) And you just know when the Repubs get the senate back, he will be the first to howl foul if they try the same tactics, if the weenies even would. Hypocrite, thy name is Democrat.

After reading this I tried to remember if Obama had vetoed any legislation. Why bother, Harry blocks everything. Well Obama has 2 vetoes. One in ´09 and one in ´10. A bill concerning Interstate Recognition of Notarizations and a short term cr for fiscal 2010 that was overridden by Obama´s signature on the final appropriations bill for 2010. So actually it´s only 1 veto. Reid´s a tyrant and he loves the role. No speech, no article will change that. Only retaking the Senate matters.

Tens of thousands have joined a rally in the Russian capital Moscow to oppose its intervention in Ukraine, a day before Crimeans vote on whether to secede and join Russia. Holding Russian and Ukrainian flags, they shouted: "The occupation of Crimea is Russia´s disgrace." A smaller pro-Moscow rally was being held elsewhere. Moscow supports the vote, which Ukraine and the West have dismissed as illegal. Kiev says Russian "provocateurs" are behind clashes in eastern Ukraine.

Earlier this week, the campaign of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) released an ad with no words. Only Mitch McConnell´s smiling face.

A day later, his tea party opponent, Matt Bevin, made his own remix of the ad.

In addition, Ms. Sink raised more money and ran a better campaign than Jolly. Even Bill Clinton lent his efforts to her campaign. And yet she lost. What should particularly alarm Democrats is

The Obama administration on Friday announced plans to relinquish U.S. control over management of the Internet to the “global Internet community.” While the announcement of the plan was sure to please international critics (and some Democrats), it created concern among business leaders and others who depend on a smoothly functioning web. Oh, and it may lead to a global web tax, as well. Former Bush administration State Department senior advisor Christian Whiton told The Daily Caller: “U.S. management of the Internet has been exemplary and there is no reason to give this away — especially in return for nothing.

Although a grand jury will review the case, prosecutor Warren Diepraam said it is unlikely that the father will be charged. "What was going on in the person´s mind at the time of the shooting, [not] what they found out after the fact" is key, Diepraam said.

WASHINGTON — Scott Brown, the Republican who admitted he wore pink leather shorts on his first date with his wife-to-be, is back. And Democrats are scared to death. It’s not that Democrats are particularly scared that the 54-year-old former Massachusetts senator is going to get elected as a New Hampshire senator — although it’s conceivable that a charming, carpetbagging, middling politician could jump across the border and unseat Jeanne Shaheen. But Shaheen is popular, and strategists don’t think that flinty “Live Free or Die” voters will welcome the Boston transplant with open arms. This is what’s really freaking out Democrats:

Back in September, John Kerry told Washington Democrats that America faced a “Munich moment” in deciding how to respond to Syria’s use of chemical weapons. He called Bashar al-Assad a “two-bit dictator” who would commit more atrocities unless he was stopped. Right idea, wrong war. The real Munich moment of our times is taking place in Ukraine. Vladimir Putin is on the march, and there’s no telling how far he’ll go if he’s allowed to gobble up Crimea without paying a serious price.

President Barack Obama hit back at critics calling him out for his "mom jeans. "I´ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans," Obama said Friday in an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest. "The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans. There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans, mainly because I was out on the pitcher´s mound and I didn´t want to feel confined while I was pitching, and I think I´ve paid my penance for that. I got whacked pretty good. Since that time, my jeans fit very well."
