Vote Tally Count Immigration funding full fiscal year

 

(Reuters) – The House of Representatives approved full fiscal-year funding for the U.S. domestic security agency on Tuesday, dealing a blow to conservative Republicans who had wanted the bill to include language blocking President Barack Obama’s recent executive orders on immigration. (167 GOPers voted no)

The House, in a 257-167 vote, backed a Senate-passed funding bill stripped of any immigration provisions, ending a bitter fight that raised new questions about House Speaker John Boehner’s ability to manage fractious conservatives and brought the agency within hours of a partial shutdown last week.

Obama has said he will sign the funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security, which spearheads domestic counterterrorism efforts. Spending authority for the department was scheduled to end at midnight onFriday.More at Reuters

Criminal Hillary Clinton, from Watergate to State Department

It is hard to believe that Pantsuit will be able to walk away from this one. The Clintons- always thinking ahead, knowing they may be held accountable, planning ahead. The bad news? If Hillary bites the dust, then we have fauxahontas in the wings. I include her first government criminal activity during Watergate.

Via WaPo:

The New York Times reported Monday night that, during her tenure at the State Department, Hillary Clinton never used her official email account to conduct communications, relying instead on a private email account. As the Times notes, only official accounts are automatically retained under the Federal Records Act, meaning that none of Clinton’s email communication was preserved.

In March 2013, an adviser to Clinton, Sidney Blumenthal, had his email hacked by “Guccifer” — the Romanian hacker perhaps best known for revealing George W. Bush’s paintings to the world. At the time, Gawker reported that Blumenthal was communicating with an account that appeared to belong to Clinton at the “clintonemail.com” domain. The content of some of those emails was published by RT.com.

Examining the registry information for “clintonemail.com” reveals that the domain was first created on January 13, 2009 — one week before President Obama was sworn into office, and the same day that Clinton’s confirmation hearings began before the Senate.

Hillary Clinton of the FCC’s move: ‘It’s a foot in the door’

Moonbattery brings us these pearls of wisdom from Hillary Clinton regarding the latest FCC move. Makes sense. She has to get in bed with the big boys for more loot for her foundation. And who spent millions to capture the last bastion of our Free Enterprise System?

Soros, Ford Foundations ‘Lavish’ $196 Million to Push Internet Regulations – See more at: Newsbusters

The Ford Foundation, which claims to be the second-largest private foundation in the U.S., and Open Society Foundations, founded by far-left billionaire George Soros, have given more than $196 million to pro-net neutrality groups between 2000 and 2013. 

As Pantsuit would say, “What difference does it make” and finally she admits what we all know is true:

“It’s a foot in the door.”

Shrillary was referring to Obama’s alarming attempts to use the FCC to do to the Internet what ObamaCare did to health insurance, and the EPA is doing to the coal industry.

The remark confirms that as with all federal regulation, its main purpose is to provide leverage so as to inflict further regulation. So long as a single unapproved thought can be expressed on the Internet, the fascistic likes of Obama and Shrillary will not be finished with it. (By the looks of this interview, she isn’t getting anymore adept at campaigning.)

State Department’s greatest hits: Kerry, Rice’s keen insight

A few of the greatest hits this week from our State Department. No doubt bubble face John should head the list. Sure we are safer now than ever before in the History of mankind. Something like that. And Bibi was a fool, and Ukraine just doesn’t get the joke.

 

Kerry voted for the Iraq war, before he was against it, but Bibi’s support shows his bad judgement. Bibi wasn’t even in office at the time.

Via Daily Beast:

Secretary of State John Kerry blasted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, claiming his support for the U.S. invasion of Iraq shows his judgment on Iran can’t be trusted. “The prime minister was profoundly forward-leaning and outspoken about the importance of invading Iraq under George W. Bush. We all know what happened with that decision,” Kerry said during a House hearing Wednesday. Of course, Kerry voted for the war in Iraq in 2002 and said he was for the invasion during his presidential campaign against George W. Bush in 2004.

Kerry and Biden meet with Netanyahu’s opposition

Yesterday I gave a link to

 

Now we find out that Kerry and Biden are meddling indeed with the Israel elections. Yes, they refuse to meet wit Netanyahu but are fine with mixing with his opposition. Sickening. Here we go:

While the Obama Administration refuses to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he travels to the U.S. next month to address Congress on the Iranian nuclear threat due to the proximity of the Israeli election, both John Kerry and Joe Biden met with Israeli Labor Party leader Isaac Herzog over the weekend in Munich.

It’s pretty chickensh#t, but can we expect anything less of the Obama Administration?
After all, members of Obama’s campaign team have travelled to Israel to unseat Netanyahu. President Obama would rather do business with the Mullahs of Iran than with Netanyahu.

So it will be up to Netanyahu to persuade Israeli voters that they have a choice between a Prime Minister who puts the security interests of Israel first or an opposition that puts the interests of Barack Obama first.

Obama and his previously defeated budgets

By now most of heard that Obama has his pen at the ready if his Trillions of dollars budget doesn’t get approved and the GOP doesn’t behave as lapdogs: Obama’s $4-trillion budget champions liberal priorities.

But let’s go back and look at how his previous budgets fared when only one was passed. All I can say it should be very interesting. My bet is he will have a temper tantrum if he doesn’t get his way. Here we go:

When the president fear mongers over Republicans blocking his $4 trillion spending plan and when he accuses the GOP of being unwilling to compromise, keep in mind he was never willing to come half way on any of the issues in the first place, this time or in the past.

Looking back on Obama’s tenure as President, it’s important to note just how far-left the vast majority of his budget proposals have been over the years, which is exactly why only one of them has passed and the rest have been roundly defeated, often unanimously, by Democrats and Republicans. In 2012, Obama’s budget was defeated by the Democrat controlled Senate 97-0. In 2013, his budget was defeated 99-0.

The Lobbying Database, who gives how much for what

If anyone wonders why the votes taken by Congress turn out the way they do, this excellent work by Open Secrets gives us all the info we need. If you have a few moments of leisure on a Saturday, here is the place to go:

In addition to campaign contributions to elected officials and candidates, companies, labor unions, and other organizations spend billions of dollars each year to lobby Congress and federal agencies. Some special interests retain lobbying firms, many of them located along Washington’s legendary K Street; others have lobbyists working in-house. They have got totals spent on lobbying, beginning in 1998, for everyone from AAI Corp. to Zurich Financial.

You can use the options on the website to search through their database in several ways: search by name for a company, lobbying firm or individual lobbyist; search for the total spending by a particular industry; view the interests that lobbied a particular government agency; or search for lobbying on a general issue or specific piece of legislation.
