Senator Tom Cotton (R, Arkansas) lighted Harry Reid’s aged and wattled ass on FIRE. And rightly so.
“This is an outrageous slander.”
“And to say that he cares for the troops, how about this troop and his son and his father and his grandfather, four generations of service, to include almost six years of rotting in a prisoner of war camp, say that he’s delaying this because he cares for the troops, a man who never served himself. A man who in April of 2007 came to this very floor before the surge reached its peak and said the war was lost when 100 Americans were being killed in Iraq every month when I was carrying their dead bodies off an airplane at Dover Air Force base. It is an outrage,” Cotton argued
Concluding his scathing remarks regarding Reid, Cotton argued, “We’re delaying it for one reason and one reason only, to protect his own sad, sorry, legacy. He now complains in the mornings that the Senate is not in session enough, that our calendar is too short. Well, whatever you think about that, the happy by-product of fewer days in session in the Senate is that this institution will be cursed less with his cancerous leadership.”
“A man who never served himself?”
Precisely, Senator Tom Cotton.
Elizabeth Warren, being a good Leftist sycophant for Hillary Clinton, opened up a proverbial Pandora’s Box (sorry, couldn’t resist) when she said, about Donald Trump:
“Donald Trump was drooling over the idea of a housing meltdown – because it meant he could buy up more property on the cheap,” Warren said Tuesday in Washington at a Center for Popular Democracy gala. “What kind of a man does that? What kind of a man roots for people to get thrown out of their house? What kind of man roots for people to get thrown out of their jobs?”
“I’ll tell you exactly what kind of a man does that: It is a man who cares about no one but himself,” she went on. “A small, insecure money-grubber who doesn’t care who gets hurt, so long as he makes a profit off it.”
But there’s a problem.
The problem is, Elizabeth Warren is also a money grubber because the made a quarter of a MILLION dollars in PROFIT from foreclosed homes. She made a ridiculous profit from the pain of others.
From the UKDailyMail.com:
Elizabeth Warren accused of making a fortune from flipping foreclosed homes
Harvard professor and U.S. Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren is back in the headlines after it was revealed that she took part in around 12 lucrative real estate deals using manoeuvres such as ‘flipping’ properties to make profits.
Mind you, this article I found is from June of 2012 — long before Warren accused Trump of doing the same thing she did. Perhaps Warren has forgotten there is something called the “internet” which tends to have something of a longer memory than she does?
Warren has in the past rallied against predatory banks and heartless foreclosures but that didn’t stop her using the controversial tactics to make fortunes.
On her website she writes: ‘We are in the midst of one of the greatest economic crises in our country’s history — a crisis that began one lousy mortgage at a time’.
But apparently Trump is a money-grubber and she is not. Because she was hopeful that persons such as myself would somehow not conduct any kind of a search-engine consultation?
But the college professor was herself an active player in the real estate market in the 1990s, buying and selling properties at steep mark-ups across her home city of Oklahoma, land records show.
She loaned money to relatives at high interest rates and paid bargain prices for foreclosed properties.
One such property she bought for $30,000, then sold for $145,000 five months later, a 383 per cent mark-up.
A 383% mark-up. Damned money grubber.
Warren typically gained between 10 and 73 per cent on her sales, netting hefty profits.
Unrepentant, damned money grubber.
You lying Leftist hypocrite.
You are dead to me. The GOP establishment is dead to me.
I am sorry I had to create such a vulgar title for this post, but I am done.
Ladies and gentlemen, the GOP are working hand-in-hand with Leftists to bring down this nation.
Paul Ryan Tells Sean Hannity He Will Not Support Any Cuts To Muslim Immigration: ‘That’s Not Who We Are’
by Julia Hahn
House Speaker Paul Ryan is ruling out making any cuts to Muslim immigration.
In an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News, Ryan declared that considering an applicant’s religion would not be “appropriate” and would be fundamentally un-American— insisting “that’s not who we are.”
“Un-American,” Speaker Ryan? Because I and others like me are concerned for the safety of our families, our children, our future? Because we don’t want what is occurring to Europe — tearing its culture apart — to occur on our soil?
That makes me “un-American” Speaker Ryan?
“Well, first of all, I don’t think a religious test is appropriate. That’s not who we are,” said Ryan.
By declaring that it would not be “proper” or “appropriate” for the United States to consider the religion of a visa applicant— or whether the applicant supports Sharia law or Muslim theocracy— Ryan is effectively suggesting that the United States should not be allowed to select whom we admit based on likelihood of assimilation.
Mr Ryan, goodbye to you sir. You are an intelligent man, you have vast budgetary skills, but I now question every decision you make because it is clear that political correctness is primary in your thinking.
And I am “un-American.”
After serving my various communities and country by working in law enforcement for 41 years, sacrificing one marriage, working all shifts, working holidays, having very little of what most persons would call a “normal life” during my working years (as I am now retired) — after all that sacrifice, obeying all the rules, being a good citizen, paying copious amounts of taxes — I am now “un-American.”
Mr Obama has stated that, by September, he will bring 10,000 Syrian “refugees” into the US under his resettlement plan. So far, 2265 have been admitted according to State Department statistics.
On Monday of this week, 225 Syrian “refugees” were admitted into the US by the State Department. That is a record for single day admits. The standard rate is roughly 10 per day. Under Mr Obama’s plan, the vetting isn’t occurring fast enough. So, of course, you know that corners will be cut because of the political push from DC. FBI Director James Comey has already said that there are no real elements in place in order to properly and safely vet Syrian “refugees,” yet here we are.
Let’s also examine the State Department’s own statistics. Of those almost 2,300 Syrian “refugees” admitted, 2,200 are Sunni Muslim, 27 are unspecified Muslim, 17 are Shiite Muslim and 4 are Christian. You are already setting up another conflict within our borders of Sunni vs Shiite.
Where are these “refugees” going to find jobs? Actual Americans are having one helluva time trying to find jobs due to the regulations that DC is placing upon businesses with the minimum wage issue, ObamaKare, overtime pay and taxes.
Who is going to pay for these extra mouths to feed and house? Local governments are already stretched. Look at Europe. Do we learn nothing from Europe? Can we not see what the Muslim hordes have done to Europe, to most every country in the EU? Can we not see that
WHY is this a priority for the Obama Administration now? Why aren’t we putting the safety and security of Americans first? It would appear to me, for example, that we have enough illegal Mexicans burning the US flag and waving Mexican flags.
Paul Ryan, there is NO “right” to emigrate to the United States. It is our country, We get to choose who comes in. We get to choose.
Regardless, every year, under Ryan’s vision the United States can expect to continue to bring in two Muslim migrants for every one Iowa Republican primary voter. According to Pew, by 2040, the United States’ Muslim population is expected to surpass the nation’s Jewish population. It is unlikely that the Muslim migrants brought in under the nation’s current federal policy will support Ryan’s limited government platform as only 11% of U.S. Muslim, according to Pew, are Republican or lean-Republican. Ryan’s continued support for the visa gusher, however, is consistent with his past statements on the matter.
Please, ladies and gentlemen, read the entire article in order to understand just precisely why it is that I am incensed.
This is a clash of cultures, no more, no less.
The Department of Veterans Affairs is disgraceful. And it’s no secret that Barack Hussein Obama dislikes our military, our veterans, and what they represent to his Leftist way of thinking.
So Mr Barack Hussein Obama owns the current state of the VA whether he likes it or not. He owns it. He would much rather disown it. And that shows.
A 2014 investigation already revealed that veterans were dying while waiting for the most cursory of treatments. The resulting April 2016 GAO report shows that not much has changed. See it here.
The new secretary, a veteran civilian product of Proctor & Gamble, Robert McDonald, was supposed to have fixed the problem but now is only exacerbating it — despite the US government having tossed in an additional $10 billion more dollars for the alleged “repair” to the system. And roughly 9 million veterans are enrolled in VA health care. There are about 319 million persons in the US. Even I can do that math.
First, the current secretary is a lickspittle moron. And so sad, because he is himself a veteran. Witness, from the WashingtonPost.com:
VA chief compares waits for veteran care to Disneyland: They don’t measure and we shouldn’t either
by Lisa Rein
Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald, under pressure to be more transparent about how VA measures wait times for veteran care, on Monday said the government should be more like Disneyland.
Disney doesn’t track how long visitors wait in line for attractions at its theme parks to decide if they liked their experience, he said. So the VA should not be held to the same standard for medical appointments for veterans.
“When you go to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line? Or what’s important?” McDonald told reporters at a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor.
“What’s important is, what’s your satisfaction with the experience?”
Oh my God. You really went there. You ignorant fucktard. Disney does in fact tell you how long the waits are on their rides, and they provide a Fast Pass should you desire. Your comments were not only rude, in bad taste, but based upon nothing but air and lies and ignorance and deceit. You of all people should know that “let them eat cake and let them wait online” won’t play.
People have died waiting in your “lines,” McDonald. It was proven. Not just “a few people.” But perhaps 300,000. Click the link. These are not statistics I am pulling out of my ugly, hemorrhoid-ridden ass.
But then, beyond that, the VA decided that a fond course would be that of lying about those selfsame statistics. Yes. The VA LIED about service times. The VA lied about our Special Forces.
Even more disgusting, McDonald actually LIED about himself having served in the Special Forces. LIED.
This is a point that will be IGNORED BY THE AMERICAN MEDIA MAGGOTS.
The problem is that the bulk of the VA is populated with various GS ranks who are union-protected. The secretary needs to be empowered with the ability to fire people but cannot. It is the overwhelming bureaucracy that government places not just on the civilian sector but upon itself as well — and the VA is one such result.
The major problem is that, unlike Disneyland, our veterans can die from having to wait for their ailments to be diagnosed, much less treated. I don’t see people dropping dead in Disney’s wait lines.
To compare having to wait an extra 30 minutes for a rollercoaster with our warriors who have served this nation either by draft or volunteering is reprehensible.
Further, it’s not just a matter of our veterans being compared to cartoon characters, it’s the fact that a recent report indicates that VA employees in at least SEVEN states were told to falsify wait times.
It’s not just that the VA is insufficient. It’s that the VA is insufficient and that it provides false statistics and then LIES about these facts in order to bury the dollars that were spent there for higher administrators. In other words: useless personnel who could NOT attend to actual patients.
Like Robert McDonald.
Robert McDonald needs to go. A person that dismissive, that dense, tone deaf and cavalier about our veterans needs to be fired with harsh impunity. He already has a nice private pension. Let him live off that and cease the double- and triple-dipping. Yes, he “made a stupid mistake.” He is “being pounced-on.” But if you are sufficiently stupid to make such a comment, you are not the person to advance the VA. Fine. Make those comments in private. But you were hired NOT to be stupid or make the same mistakes of your predecessors. Accountability? Responsibility? Fuck you. You need to go. You have proven yourself to be JUST ANOTHER CAREERIST.
But instead now: boo-hoo. You’re “picking on McDonald.” Right. Robert McDonald. That means he’ll only be able to afford a tune-up for his Mercedes-Benz S Class instead of his once-anticipated 2016 Rolls-Royce Phantom.
Here is a Truism. The US Military does not, in general, vote Democrat. That bespeaks volumes. Volumes.
There are only two hopes for the VA:
Then and only then would things change.
Until that point, the callousness of the federal bureaucracy will continue to kill some of the best of our United States citizens, who have served and only want what was promised to them.
And that is: just a bit of care and concern.
Elitist. Phony. Power hungry. Control freak. Dishonest. Statist. Wooden. Cynical. Obsessive. Lazy. Lack of dignity. Pandering. Arrogant. Incompetent.
I’m not describing McDonald.
I was saving those descriptors for Hillary Clinton.
