Keystone Bill Fails to Clear Senate Hurdle; Debate Drags On

Keystone Bill Fails to Clear Senate Hurdle



Senate Republicans failed to rally enough votes Monday to advance a bill approving the Keystone Pipeline XL Monday, putting a crimp in their plans to move toward a final vote.  Senate Democrats successfully filibustered to keep open the amendment process.  The preliminary vote to shut down amendment submissions, was 53-39.  It takes 60 votes to move the process towards a final vote.  The 1,179 miles of pipeline, proposed in 2008, would allow for 800,000 barrels of tar sands oil from Canada into the United States, connecting to existing pipelines leading to Gulf Coast refineries.

I'm afraid when the final vote is cast, Republicans will fall short in making this bill successful which will lead to the creation of thousands of new jobs as well as diminish the need to import oil from the Middle East to America.  The forces of Nimrod want the U.S. to be dependent on the Middle East from oil.  There's too many politicians and other influential business people who have strong ties to the Middle East.

Despite War Against Al Qaeda in Yemen, Obama Seeks to Release 47 Yemenis From Gitmo

Despite War in Al-Qaeda, Obama Seeks to Release 47 Yemenis


Gitmo, Guantanamo

This whole war against "Al-Qaeda" doesn't make sense.  First of all, this war goes further than Al-Qaeda.  It's not just about Al-Qaeda--it's a war against Islamic terrorism.  Islamic terrorism is a religious war against the infidels, according to the religion of Islam.  Israel is the little satan and America is the great satan.  There are other terrorist networks than Al-Qaeda.  Secondly, since Al-Qaeda training camps are in Yemen, it doesn't make sense the Obama administration desires to release 47 Yemenis.  It just gives them the license to inflict more jihads in the United States.  President Obama doesn't want to use the phrase "Islamic terrorism" due to the relationships that Obama has with the Middle East.  We have no business courting with the Middle East.  We need to marginalize our relations with the Middle East.  We need to be independent from the Middle East, which means we need to produce our own oil for our own country instead of importing any oil from the Middle East.  The Middle East needs to become irrelevant when it comes to the U.S.'s interests.

SF Archbishop on Pelosi: No Catholic Can Dissent From Church Teaching on Abortion

SF Archbishop on Pelosi

cordileoneArchbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco responded to the comments that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi made concerning whether or not a 20 week-old "fetus" is a human being.  Pelosi wouldn't answer whether or not a 20-week old baby is a human being.  The Archbishop stated that life begins at conception and no Catholic can dissent in good conscience on the church teaching regarding abortion.   I agree with that but abortion is a life issue.  It's a biblical issue in which God says that the unborn is a human being.  It's much more than a Catholic church issue.  What's important is what God's word says.  That's what counts.  It's a human life issue.  No doctor has a right to snuff out an unborn child from the mother's womb.  In response to what House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says, it goes to show how corrupting an influence politics is regardless of what kind of church they attend.  When you're in the realm of politics, Biblical truth and common sense stays outside the door.  It's all about being politically correct in the political arena.

Repeal Every Word: Potential 2016 GOP Rivals Hammer Obamacare, IRS at Summit

Repeal Every Word


Texas Senator Ted Cruz

During the Iowa Freedom Summit in Des Moines, Iowa, several potential 2016 candidates were hammering President from everything to Obamacare to his executive amnesty for illegals.  One of the phrases used during this summit, "repeal every word."  I wish they would do that in Congress.  We don't need stump speeches declaring "repeal every word" as much as we need backbone from the House of Representatives to blue slip Obamacare.  We need action more than stump speeches!  Click on FoxNews.com to read the story.

Romney Praise Gruber For Spending "Hours and Hours" on Romneycare

Romney Praises Gruber

          Then Governor Mitt Romney in 2006

Do  you ever wonder how a very successful businessman and venture capitalist could ever pass and promote socialized healthcare such as Romneycare in his own state as a governor?  This shows how politics can corrupt a man.  What difference should it make to Romney?  He has his millions anyway.  He's not going to lose his savings.  So why should it bother him to pass a socialized healthcare system on the people in his own state?  It's tragic.  This is one reason why I don't desire for Romney to be a 2016 candidate for president.  He's no better than any of the liberal Democratic politicians.  Click on CNSNews.com to read the full story.

Graham: We are in a Religious War With Radical Islamists

Graham: We are in a Religous War With Radical Islamists


ISIS Aiming at Captured Iraqi Soldiers (AP Photo)
Even though I'm not a fan of RINO Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, he is correct in the statement that he made that Islamic terrorism is a religious war.  There's no question about that. The one thing that's not correct is that America isn't at war with Islam; Islam is at war with America.  Also, Graham is on the wrong side when it comes to fighting Islamic terrorism.    He's supported the military's strategy in these past wars against Afghanistan and Iraq which have not obliterated the enemy or have reduced Al-Qaeda terrorist cells.  If the U.S. wants to stop Islamic terrorism, then we need to stop allowing Muslims from coming across the border to the United States.  We need to close our borders.  If you're not going to close our borders, then there's no point in speaking about fighting Islamic terrorism.  Lindsey Graham supports amnesty for illegals and keeping our borders open.  As long as we keep our borders open, Muslim terrorists will cross our borders and plot more terror plots.  Another thing that will help is we stop importing oil from the Middle East.  We need to make the Middle East as irrelevant to U.S. interests as possible.  The way to do that is to stop purchasing their oil and produce our own, which the U.S. much of in certain areas of the U.S.  Click on CNSNews.com to read the full story.

Obama to Call For New Tax Increases in the State of the Union Address

Obama to Call For New Tax Increases in the State of the Union Address




Here's President Obama once again playing the same old class warfare game in his upcoming State of the Union Address on Tuesday.  His plan calls for new tax increases on the wealthy in order to fund tax credits to help the middle class!  Ha! Ha!  What a joke.  One idea calls for new tax increases on the investment tax.  Another is to eliminate a tax break on inheritances.  The President also plans to call for $320 billion in tax increases the next 10 years.  Aside from funding new tax credits such as a tax credit for working families and child care tax credit, he also wants to use the money to make college more affordable and accessible--even some free college.  Guess who will pay for it.  It will be the middle class paying for everything.  The top earners will find a way to escape that loophole. 

Our elected elite (both Democrats and Republicans), are traitors to the highest degree on Capitol Hill.  They're nothing but liars, crooks, and thieves.  They rip us off through our pocketbooks.  They authorize our troops to "fight" wars in the Middle East that our elected elite have no intention of winning.  They are allowing (through the efforts of John Boehner) for Obama's executive order on amnesty go through by allowing the funding of it in December's omnibus bill.  There's not one person you can trust to stand for the American people on Capitol Hill.  That's the truth!

wallerCenter for Security Policy official Tommy Waller

The Center for Security Policy (CSP) official Tommy Waller stated that that when he fought Islamic jihadist in Afghanistan and other places, the U.S. military didn't teach him the ideology of Islamic jihad, which was a deliberate omission by the U.S. military and it puts the U.S. in great peril.  Waller, a marine reserve major, spoke via Skye to the National Press Club on January 16th, and he was speaking as an employee of the CSP, and released a new report entitled, The Secure Freedom Strategy: A Plan For Victory Over the Global Jihad Government.  This was based on Ronald Reagan's similar plan to defeat Soviet Russia.  The Secure Freedom Strategy unveils the fact that the jihadists, who adhere to Sharia Law, are behind the global jihadist movement.

55% of Military Disapproves of How Obama Handles His Job as Commander-in-Chief

55% of Military Disapproves of How Obama Handles His Job as Commander-in-Chief


military

According to a Military Times poll, more 55% or more than half of active-duty troops disapproves of how President Obama handles his job as commander-in-chief, and rightly so.  Also Obama's popularity fell from 35% in 2009 to 15% this year among active duty soldiers.

It's a disgrace to have President Obama as the commander-in-chief.  He has done nothing but continued the same war polices in both Iraq and Afghanistan that he inherited from his predecessor George W. Bush.  He's even went further by involving the U.S. in Libya in 2011 and he's involving U.S. troops in Iraq to supposedly counter ISIS.  With the President and the military brass supposedly having no clear mission in fighting these wars and winning them, it makes it very frustrating for our troops.  It's very tragic.  Click on the above link from CNSNews.com to read the story.

Obama AWOL in Paris: Message to America, Allies is We Don't Care

Obama AWOL in Paris




On Fox News opinion page, Douglas E. Schoen, a Democrat and former pollster with former president Bill Clinton, gave his opinion about the "AWOL-in-chief" (my words) not being in Paris on Sunday January 11, 2015, to show solidarity against Islamic terrorism by standing with French President Francois Hollande.  The meeting in Paris was to remember the slain journalist, Charlie Hebdo, and to stand against Islamic terrorism.  President Obama refuses to call the tragic event of the slain journalist as terrorism.  I wonder, is President Obama a Muslim himself?  If not, he's definitely a Muslim sympathizer.  The terrorist attack that took place in Paris should alert the West and the United States they will strike again.  We don't need to allow Arabs from the Middle East to immigrate to our country nor should we be friendly with them.  It's not in the U.S.'s best interest.  We must stand against Islamic terrorism.  The Islamists won't to overtake the West and the entire world.  America and Europe better wake up!
