Shame on Amy – Klobuchar Owes Republicans an Apology

The devotion to funding abortions by the Democrats like Senator Amy Klobuchar is disturbing. The headline should read: Klobuchar admits her office helped Democrats lie about Republicans

Klobuchar concedes office knew of abortion provision
WASHINGTON – A staffer in Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s office was aware of a controversial abortion-related provision in a sex trafficking bill that has ground the Senate to a halt and stalled the nomination of the next U.S. Attorney General.

Klobuchar is the primary Democratic cosponsor on the bipartisan bill that would establish a restitution fund for victims of human trafficking with money seized from convicted sex traffickers.

The bill was set to sail through the Senate after a brief debate last week until it suddenly stalled when Democrats announced that it contained what’s known as “Hyde Amendment” language they had been unaware of. The language prevents the use of the seized money to pay for abortions.

Democrats took to the floor of the US Senate yesterday and made racially explosive claims for why Republicans refused to bring up the confirmation of Loretta Lynch. They said they were making her sit in the back of the bus. Klobuchar took part in the filibuster trying to shame Republicans for the Sex trafficking bill stalling.

But Klobuchar had the opportunity to bring up the little provision that prevented taxpayer money from being used for abortion funding long before the bill reached the floor. The enflamed vitriol from her party towards Republicans was all preventable.

For the past week, Republicans insisted that Democrats had been aware of the Hyde Amendment’s inclusion and had not sought its removal when the bill was debated in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Cornyn called the Democrats’ assertions, “preposterous” and “not credible” and Klobuchar’s office now concedes he was correct.

“A staff member who reviewed the reintroduced bill had seen the Hyde provision in the bill but did not inform the Senator,” said Klobuchar spokeswoman Julia Krahe, in a statement. “The Senator takes responsibility for the work of her office and missing the provision.”

Senator Klobuchar needs to take responsibility for all the venom spewed forth by her party because of her mistake. There was a lot of hatred on display because of this love Klobuchar has for abortion funding.

Klobuchar spent several hours on the Senate floor Wednesday reading from a book about international sex trafficking to rally support for the bill but did not publicly address the issue of her office’s role in the legislative stalemate.

Share this story with all of your friends and family who believe the media driven hype that Klobuchar is a moderate Senator who just gets along with everyone regardless of their party. She is a died in the wool left wing Democrat.

Franken & Klobuchar Support Abortion Over Sex Trafficking Victims

They have decided to withdraw support for a bill to combat sex trafficking because it would prevent the funds being diverted to take innocent lives.

Abortion provision jeopardizes bipartisan sex-trafficking measure
[…]

Democrats, including Klobuchar and Sen. Al Franken, say that Republicans sneaked a provision in the 68-page bill that would prevent funds reserved for trafficking victims from being used on morning-after pills or abortions.

Which is it, do Klobuchar & Franken want to provide abortions or help sex trafficking victims?

Amnesty Whopper: Underage Aliens Will Get Free Abortions

The new American dream: Send your pregnant underage daughter to the United States to get a free abortion.

You can’t claim to be compassionate if you support barbarism like this.

There are already a million abortions each year in the US. Are we now going to be the abortion provider to the world?

Think of it. We already take the lives of a million innocent lives each year. We are being forced to open our borders to people from poverty stricken countries and we are going to welcome them with free abortions.

What exactly are we trying to tell the world about what makes us tick?

I guess this is what fundamentally transforming America looks like.

Net Neutrality or Obamanet Or Maybe FrankenNet

grumpy catDemocrats like Al Franken & Barrack Obama are pushing very strongly for Net Neutrality. I instinctively cringe when a Democrat demands something. More often than not, I am right and they are trying to squash freedom and productivity.

As the secrets of their Net Neutrality push are being revealed, the deal looks to be even worse. Like how the “fixed” health insurance, they are looking to their socialist friends across the pond for a socialist answer to unchecked freedom of speech.

Obama’s regs will make Internet slow as in Europe, warn FCC, FEC commissioners
As the Federal Communications Commission and Federal Election Commission toy with regulating aspects of the Internet, critics on those agencies are warning that speed and freedom of speech are in jeopardy.

In a joint column, Federal Communications Commission member Ajit Pai and Federal Election Commission member Lee Goodman, leveled the boom on the Obama-favored regulations, essentially charging that it will muck up the freedom the nation has come to expect from the Internet.

[…]

Noting recent votes on the issue that ended in a political deadlock, the two wrote, “these close votes and the risk of idiosyncratic case-by-case enforcement inevitably discourage citizens and groups from speaking freely online about politics.”

Bottom line, they warned: “Internet freedom works. It is difficult to imagine where we would be today had the government micromanaged the Internet for the past two decades as it does Amtrak and the U.S. Postal Service. Neither of us wants to find out where the Internet will be two decades from now if the federal government tightens its regulatory grip. We don’t need to shift control of the Internet to bureaucracies in Washington. Let’s leave the power where it belongs — with the American people. When it comes to Americans’ ability to access online content or offer political speech online, there isn’t anything broken for the government to “fix.” To paraphrase President Ronald Reagan, Internet regulation isn’t the solution to a problem. Internet regulation is the problem.”

 

Franken: Because Money Grows On Trees

If only Minnesota voters know Al Franken was a stark raving mad left wing Marxist…..

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A new proposal from Sen. Al Franken would allow all workers to earn sick time if they or a family member are under the weather.

Franken says 43 million workers don’t have paid sick days, and many are forced to come to work when they don’t feel well.

What about the employers who have already had taxes raised by Franken? What about the employers who have already had their regulations raised by Franken? What about the employers who have already had their material costs raised by Franken? Do we need to bring up Obamacare’s burden on employers too?

I know most elected Democrats have never had to make a payroll as a business owner, but do they really believe that money grows on trees?

 

Can We Finally Put That Whole ‘The GOP Is The Party Of The Rich’ Meme To Bed Yet?

Democrats outspend Republicans 2 to 1 in the 2014 elections. Folks, and members of the media, that money has to come from somewhere. Source: PiPress

The party, in the midst of a decadelong shutout from statewide offices, spent $8.6 million to end the state and federal election drought last year. The Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party spent $15 million and kept the GOP from picking off any statewide or congressional incumbents. State campaign finance reports were made public Tuesday.

The DFL slush fund, Alliance for a Better Minnesota alone spent $5.3 million.

Here’s another fun little benefit to being a DFLer running for office. Source: MN CFB AFSCME 2014 Year End

Your DFL supporting attack groups get to claim $1 million in unitemized contributions and no one blinks.

The party of the rich and shadow money is the Democrat Party, not the Republicans. Its time for the press to stop repeating the DFL lies.

My Congressman Voted For Boehner Today, Now What Do I Do?

So brand new Congressman Tom Emmer voted for John Boehner for Speaker of the House and I wouldn’t have done the same.

Now what?

My choices are,

1) Stay on in CD6 and hope to earn Congressman Emmer’s trust and pass along some wisdom from the inside. Yes, I could run for reelection as CD6 Treasurer and State Executive Committee member and try to change the Congressman’s mind on issues. The truth is there is so much else to fight for in party politics for me. In 2016 we must hold the MN House and retake the MN Senate. Anyone wasting any time on other pursuits in 2016 is a fool and best friend of the DFL. In 2018 we have another statewide war for Guv, US Senate, and such. There’s so much work to rebuild the part from the base up and strengthen it at the CD & State level, surely I could set difference  aside for the greater good…. But should I?

2) Take my ball and go home. Yes, I could walk away from politics altogether because try and try as I might, there is always another person or group that causes you headaches and makes the volunteer work even harder. Meanwhile other people doing the same thing as me (only worse) have figured out how to profit lucratively from it. Why bother? Yes the party work work needs to be done, but why do I continue to bang my head against the wall when some fanboy activist demands the world revolve around them one day and the next your Congressman votes exactly opposite of how you would. Another day a group will siphon off all the volunteers and teach them that listening to a couple guys tell jokes every week or so is doing something. I have better things to do. And frankly this little bit of venting is likely to have already earned me the distinguished status of enemy of a whole list of people and groups.

3) Put my money where my mouth is. Yes, if I am so let down by the people who represent me in Government, maybe its time for me to run. I’m no fan of personal grudge match endorsement battles or primaries, but I’ve had about all I can take. Maybe its time to run for something. And frankly if Congressman Emmer is going to be Boehner’s most reliable vote while compromising with Obama on the destruction of our Country, he is unworthy to represent me. There was no good alternative. I am too busy to know anything about the others who ran. But I do know that had I been sworn in to the 114th Congress, I would have voted for myself.

Sure, the insiders and people who get invited to all those fancy dancy parties  think Boehner is a great and masterful Speaker. Meanwhile the country is in Constitutional and fiscal crisis. The citizen is deemed the security threat. Taxes and regulation are an every day but necessary obstacle to the pursuit of happiness that is so drummed into us Americans that we don’t even bat an eye anymore. We’re at that now or never point.

What does this mean?

I don’t know. I’m open for advice.

Is it worth being just a lowly activist that operatives and politicians take advantage of anymore?

Is it time for me to run for State or Federal office?

Maybe a higher office with in the Republican Party?

Or maybe I should just go be a blissful uninformed voter and no longer care that this country and state are falling apart at the seems under the crushing force of Government?

Obama Proves His Marxist Heart With Net Neutrality

The Federal Government taking over the internet and making it a public utility is yet another example of President Obama’s (and Senator Al Franken’s)  lust for a perfect Marxist utopia. Where someone else pays for what you want. But don’t let any of your Minnesota friends know that Al Franken is a left wing nutjob.

Internet is a service. You are buying a service, you do not have a right to it. If you use more than someone else, you should pay more. If your usage is causing a slowdown for everyone else, why shouldn’t the company protect other customers?

yes, there is room for debate about the tactics and ethics of all internet providers and key companies in the internet – Google for example. They’ve been censoring search results and promoting others in a pay to play scheme for years, but they don’t get punished.

Friends, Net Neutrality sounds so wonderful, but this is classic Marxism. Someone built a product (the internet and its wonderous way it gets to your home, work, or mobile device) and the Progressive left wants to steal their product and spread the wealth around.

Set aside your dislike for Comcast, Verizon, ATT, etc and think about it. Don’t use Government to punish someone or something you don’t like.

In a free society, you have to assume risk. In a free society, competition will drive better and cheaper goods and services.

This is another reach of Government. Once they control the internet, what makes you think they won’t tell you what you can and cannot see on it? They ruined health insurance. They ruined school lunches.

Wake up people. You’re being played by a Marxist. Think don’t feel.

There is no such thing as a free lunch.

Klobuchar ’06 v. Klobuchar ’14 – When Doves Become Hawks

Senator Klobuchar is proudly defending new found Hawk President Obama’s decision to escalate the war on ISIS by expanding the area of airstrikes from Iraq to also include Syria.

Don’t get me wrong, ISIS is pure evil, but the Senator used to sing a completely different tune on military involvement. In her 2006 campaign, she said  wanted to bring all the troops home (well she wiggled and giggled to some form of a pull out stance).

On perhaps the biggest question about Iraq — withdrawing troops — Amy Klobuchar has a different answer now than she did earlier this year. In June she told Minnesota Public Radio she supported bringing home more than half of the troops in 2006 and withdrawing the rest by the end of next year, with one caveat.

“We need to bring a significant number of the troops home,” she said. “One reason I just can’t buy into bringing every single troop out by the end of the year is that if there’s a possibility that a peacekeeping force comes in or the U.N, comes in and if we’re asked to be part of that, we must do that.”

That was last summer.

Here’s the DFL Senate candidate in a recent appearance with Tim Russert on NBC’s Meet the Press.

“Clearly, at this time, this late date in mid-October, we can’t bring a significant number home,” she said. “We have to be reasonable. I have never been one to say ‘bring them all home tomorrow.’ I have never subscribed to one of those mandatory dates, because I understand that, despite my opposition to the war from the beginning, that we have to be responsible about how we bring our troops home.”

“But you did say bring home bring home a significant number this year, you’re saying now that’s probably not doable. What about a vast majority in 2007, which is what you said also?” Russert asked.

“These predictions were built on the promises and the predictions of progress from this administration,” said Klobuchar, “and we simply haven’t seen that so you have to be reasonable in what you’re going to do here.”

Once Klobuchar and Democrats got an anti-war Democrat elected to the Presidency, they did end the war in Iraq based on politics at home. ISIS, in my opinion, is the effect of that political decision to “bring our troops home”. That, coupled with the bungling foreign policy of this Democrat administration have left the World with no leader of the free world.

President Obama and Sen. Klobuchar have been too preoccupied with defeating the Tea Party and ambulance chasing to maintain a firm grasp of the burdensome and icky reality of foreign policy and the importance of not letting politics and the media distort your judgement.

I pray that this country wakes up and realizes that elections have consequences.
