I know I shouldn’t be surprised that Congress is attempting to give themselves a $50K a year raise while giving illegal aliens $1800 and taxpaying American citizens $600; but HOLY BEJESUS, Nancy should be charged with the attempted murder of millions of Deplorables by heart attack!
Her INSANE omnibus spending bill (that had to be written by think tanks since the Great Shut Down in March) is 5500 pages long and I.Am.Sure we have not read the worst of it yet.
Nothing ever changes with these f*ckers, except 2020 is really 20/20. Cocaine Mitch (in my humble opinion) is taking strict orders from 45 to let Nan have her way and expose every single anti-American Demon thru their UNBELIEVABLE GREED. THEY KNOW the screw is coming to an end. It’s the only explanation for Mitch getting hundreds of judges thru in 3-1/2 years, then congratulating the CCP asset for his electoral college win, and lickety split passing a $2.3 TRILLION spending bill that is one monetary insult after another.
I personally think that everybody should take that $600 or whatever measly amount of our great, great, great grandchildrens’ income they are deigning to throw our way and use it to buy more firearms; that being the plan here at Monster HQ.
Today, I ran across Seth Holehouse of Man In America and the following video. I suggest new visitors watch it in it’s entirety to understand what we are up against. He covers all the important parts in a rather short amount of time. So many of us were shouting research at the tops of our lungs for so long about the globalists; finally, 20/20 is exposing them. It’s almost a badge of honor to be a conspiracy theorist now.
In other news; since the great shutdown for the plandemic created by Gates and Fauci and sent by the CCP, I have been hustling to find whatever work I can (since in my very blue state, my UI bennies went to Nigeria; only to become kickbacks). I and my family are doing okay at the moment, and we are watching the movie that has been a little over 3 years in the making start to unfold. I have to tell you that I personally am grinning like a maniac watching the panic of the demons on display. I am also very choked up at the possibility that we may see the demise of the DS in our lifetimes.
I am also very happy to be back! I know this is what I am supposed to be doing; either here or somewhere closer to the power center. I am planning on starting a podcast, and have thrown up the usual donate buttons for those that want to cast some cash my way. I really do appreciate it, but I have been in this WAR for the duration; I just couldn’t keep beating a dead horse waiting for the world to catch up to the patriots. Now they have joined the fight!!
In the meantime, MERRIEST OF CHRISTMAS’ to each and every one of my readers, American Patriots, World Patriots, and the 1st Family!!!
I love you all, and 2021 is going to be a GLORIOUS YEAR!! Let’s Rock!
Every once in a while, they slip up, and tell you what they are really thinking…and we should be worried.
I have been fretting since I realized some three months ago that the Republicans are going to take control of the Senate as well as the House, and Mitch McConnell and John Boehner are going to be ‘the leadership’ for the country. How scary is it to know that the two branches of the same party (Big Government) are sparring so as to appear to be enemies? How scary is it to know that we are moving from the whips and electric cattle prods of Nancy and Harry’s regime to the velvet gloved iron fist of McConnell and Boehner?
If Americans want real change in Washington, Sen. Jim DeMint and Rep. Ron Paul should be the leadership team to push the agenda that demands a rollback of 100 years of progressive nudge and stops the ‘global governance’ crowd from delivering a fatal blow to America’s sovereignty through debt.
A McConnell/Boehner team is not written in stone; it’s just more District of Criminals ‘business as usual’.
Boston University economist Laurence Kotlikoff says U.S. government debt is not $13.5-trillion (U.S.), which is 60 per cent of current gross domestic product, as global investors and American taxpayers think, but rather 14-fold higher: $200-trillion – 840 per cent of current GDP. “Let’s get real,” Prof. Kotlikoff says. “The U.S. is bankrupt.”
Writing in the September issue of Finance and Development, a journal of the International Monetary Fund, Prof. Kotlikoff says the IMF itself has quietly confirmed that the U.S. is in terrible fiscal trouble – far worse than the Washington-based lender of last resort has previously acknowledged. “The U.S. fiscal gap is huge,” the IMF asserted in a June report. “Closing the fiscal gap requires a permanent annual fiscal adjustment equal to about 14 per cent of U.S. GDP.”
McConnell and Boehner are creatures of Congress who are not driven by any desire to live at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
McConnell frets, however, about controlling expectations among tea party activists likely to want—and quite possibly demand—that bigger GOP numbers in Congress produce big things: a swift repeal of the health care reform law; a massive U-turn on federal spending; and immediate action to reduce the national debt. Tea party darling and likely freshman mover-and-shaker Marco Rubio of Florida, for instance, summed up the movement’s ax-wielding gusto in July: “Every day we postpone acting decisively to rein in wasteful spending and cut the debt, we pile even more on the backs of millions of young Americans.”
In one sign of conditional unity, Sen. Jim DeMint, the South Carolina Republican who backed many tea party candidates in open defiance of McConnell and other GOP leaders, says he isn’t spoiling for a leadership fight. But note the qualification. “I have no intention of challenging the leadership,” DeMint told National Journal. “What I have done over the last year has ruffled a lot of feathers in our conference. The chance of me getting the votes is not realistic at this point.” But DeMint says that Senate Republicans must change the way they approach spending and do it soon, or tea party activists will lose faith and rebel even more.
“We have to understand, this is not so much a Republican victory.… I see it more as a realignment of American politics,” DeMint said. “We’re going to have more Republicans, and the composition is going to be more of a limited-government idea. The biggest challenge we have is to change the idea that senators are here to do what is best for their states, to get all they can for their states and the interests operating in their states.”
And this is where DeMint is spoiling for a confrontation. He wants Republicans to cut spending no matter what effect those reductions have on their home-state constituents. He says this would be a “definitional” culture shift among Republicans, and he considers the pledge made by all the Senate GOP candidates—including relative moderates such as Mark Kirk of Illinois and Carly Fiorina of California—to adopt the no-earmarks policy the beginning of that change. DeMint sees earmarks as a symptom of a deeper problem: the structural bias for more discretionary spending and the clout that comes with it.
To reverse that trend, DeMint wants to upend generations of bipartisan logrolling. What’s his ask? That GOP leaders permanently exclude themselves from the Appropriations Committee, which allocates non-entitlement spending. If that rule had been in place during this Congress, three GOP leaders would have been kicked off Appropriations—McConnell, Tennessee’s Lamar Alexander, and Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski. “If we are going to cut spending, we have to take the power away from those responsible for spending,” DeMint says. “We have to say no to a power base that can be corrupting over time, not in the sense of anything criminal, but in the sense that your focus is spending and not cutting.”
McConnell was icily noncommittal about DeMint’s idea: “We will debate any rule changes brought before the conference.” Kyl is downright opposed. “That suggests there’s something wrong with [the current system],” he said. DeMint’s point is that there is, in fact, something wrong with the current system. Thus, Senate Republicans may find themselves divided over their own rules even before they begin to grapple with Obama over spending, tax rates, or entitlements.
UPDATE: I’m even more worried now. Chuck Schumer as the Senate Leader?
Mitch McConnell on Dodd’s 1336 page financial reform bill. As you may have already guessed, the Monster is totally against the Frank version and this version because it gives the government too much control over our money coming and going. The keywords here? Fannie and Freddie. Als0, the arbitrary decision making should make all Americans uneasy.
For weeks, the White House strategy on financial regulatory reform remained an open question: Would President Barack Obama water down his bill just to get something passed — the way he did on health care?
A Palinesque “Hell no!” was the answer coming from the White House on Wednesday as the president, his senior aides and his allies on Capitol Hill issued an ultimatum to Republicans fighting Democrats’ plans to overhaul financial oversight.
“For the president, you have to be willing to accept a strong bill,” said White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, after Obama emerged from a contentious meeting with GOP congressional leaders.
“If the effort to get this close is simply to take steps to weaken that legislation, that’s not what the president is interested in.”
Democrats are so emboldened that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is prepared to bring the Banking Committee bill to the floor with no major concessions to Republicans and essentially dare them to vote against the measure, senior leadership aides said.
At a time when Wall Street is as reviled as government, Democrats are willing to gamble that at least one Republican — and maybe as many as a half-dozen — will break ranks. At the same time, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell is betting he can hold his caucus together to deny Democrats even a single vote.
I am currently reading this bill and wanted to drop an interesting tidbit on you. For those interested in reading the 114 page Manager’s Amendment, go here. I am only a couple hundred pages into this POS but starting on page 60, a new government office is to be established. The “Office Of Financial Research” will be part of the Treasury, and will have a Director appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. This office will also have a data collection center to keep track of all financial and nonbank financial institutions so as to be able to report to Congress on companies that ‘threaten’ the economy. It is unclear how big or how many new government employees this office will create, but considering how events are unfolding now with Obamacare, I’m assuming pretty large.
The interesting tidbit pertains to the Financial Research Fund that is to be established and the ability of the Office that is providing Congress with reports to invest monies they aren’t using. Let me know if you think that’s a conflict of interest, and if you would like to know exactly how much money that is?
“Funds obtained by, transferred to, or credited to the Financial Research Fund shall be immediately available to the Office, and shall remain available until expended, to pay the expenses of the Office in carrying out the duties and responsibilities of the Office.”
“Shall not be construed to be Government Funds…”. Whose money is it then?
Commit Mitch, Commit! How hard would it be to just say “Republicans will campaign on repealing Obamacare and every other piece of liberal legislation that is bankrupting our country.” How hard would that be? When are the republicans going to stop being such political pantywaists?
From midnight to 1 am, floor speeches were made for and against the senate healthcare bill and the addition of Harry Reid’s manager’s amendment. Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid were the last to speak as is the ritual for the minority majority leaders. McConnell knocked this one right out of the ballpark, while Harry went so far overboard on the whining and melodramatic stories and phrasing, that it went past the point of nausea to the ridiculous.
I am posting these floor speeches as Americans that are now fully awake and paying attention to the 111th Congress and the current White House know that history is being made; just not the history that the Democrats wanted exactly. Please pass these videos on, and wake up your neighbors to the un-Constitutional mandate that this bill places on every single American.

All it takes is one, just one. All it takes is one.
Health care reform cleared a momentous hurdle Tuesday, as the Senate Finance Committee voted to send its version of the legislation to the Senate floor after months of closely watched deliberations.
The committee voted 14-9 in favor of the package. One Republican, Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe, broke with her party to support the bill. All 13 Democrats on the panel voted in favor of it, while the rest of the Republicans opposed it.
The panel was the last of five to act on health legislation, and the vote marked the biggest advance so far toward health care reform, as the committee’s legislation is considered the best building block for a compromise plan in the full Senate.
But much work still remains on the package.
The House still needs to bring a unified version to the floor, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will begin working with White House staff, Baucus and others to blend the Finance bill with a more liberal version passed by the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee – before bringing a final product to the Senate floor.
