Pass it on.
Texas has already thrown up a road block.
“Well, it’s not over. We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over,” Reid said back on April 15th, tax day.
This bespeaks volumes in and of itself.
Now, Nevada Senator Harry Reid — who is also the Senate Majority Leader — has thrown his power against Nevada land owners. And against, literally, his own constituents.
Ultimately, this may not play so remarkably well.
BUNKERVILLE, Nev. (CBS Las Vegas/AP) — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says “something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting his cattle graze on federal land.
“It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.”
Reid called militias staying at Bundy’s Bunkerville ranch “domestic violent terrorist-wannabes.”
Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., disagreed with Reid, telling KSNV that these militia members are “patriots” and took issue with how the U.S. Bureau of Land Management handled the situation.
“I take more issues with the BLM coming in with a paramilitary army of individuals with snipers. I’m talking to people and groups that are there at the event. Your own government with sniper lenses on you. It made a lot of people very uncomfortable,” Heller told KSNV.
The junior Nevada senator also stated that he wants congressional hearings held about BLM trying to round-up Bundy’s cattle.
My guess is this: “something” won’t play well and it won’t be nice.
A wonderful video of Gwendolyn Chapman, from WAPT.com in Jackson, Mississippi.
Gwendolyn Chapman is a candidate running for mayor of Jackson, Mississippi. You can see she has a rather unique platform, and an interesting patois.
Her motto is: “Move the change forward to a one-love.” She believes in “familyhood” and unity. She believes she is the best candidate for the “mayoritorial” race because she has a perfect financial economic plan.
She says: “the United States spends over a trillion dollars a year on product made of industrial hemp.” She claims that Mississippi is an “aljicultural state,” and that “there is a Constitutional right to take that same product that the United States spends over in China, United Kingdom and other countries, we can use that money.”
Ms Chapman wants you to vote for her because “cannibis is made of cotton, corn, it’s made of petroleum, it’s made of all that you can name of.” But the important thing is, “if there is to be a nuclear warfare this plant would dissolve nuclear radiation and repeal it.”
Finally: “let’s rise from the bottom to the top.”
I must admit, Ms Chapman makes a compelling argument.
First, Eric Holder was hospitalized for a short time this morning in DC for dizziness and shortness of breath; he has since been discharged.
Then, from The Daily Caller:
“Whispers persist that Hillary won’t run: Health may be worse than disclosed
by Alex Pappas
If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front-runner in the next presidential race.
But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns.
Tactical question: if so, then who would the Demorats pick as a substitute for Clinton? Your thoughts?
