Getting “Pelosi’d” by the GOP?

Remember old San Fran Nan and her quote about ObamaKare: “But we have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what’s in it”?

It would appear the GOP is doing the same thing.

Paul Ryan’s Pelosi-Esque Obamatrade Moment: ‘It’s Declassified And Made Public Once It’s Agreed To’

by Matthew Boyle

Chief Obamatrade proponent House Ways and Means Committee chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) admitted during Congressional testimony on Wednesday evening that despite tons of claims from him and other Obamatrade supporters to the contrary, the process is highly secretive.

He also made a gaffe in his House Rules Committee testimony on par with former Speaker

Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) push to pass Obamacare, in which she said infamously said: “we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

“It’s declassified and made public once it’s agreed to,” Ryan said of Obamatrade in Rules Committee testimony on Wednesday during questioning from Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX).

What Ryan is trying to convince House Republicans to do is vote for Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) which would fast-track at least three highly secretive trade deals—specifically the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA), and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (T-TIP)—and potentially more deals.

Right now, TiSA and T-TIP text are completely secretive and unavailable for even members of Congress to read while TPP text is available for members to review—although they need to go to a secret room inside the Capitol where only members of Congress and certain staffers high-level security clearances, who can only go when members are present, can read the bill.

Why is it that, more so these days, so much of government business has to be conducted in a clandestine fashion?

Am I the only one who finds this turn of events disturbing?

GOP, once again, never fails to squander an advantage

Boehner & Pelosi

John Boehner just loves him some good ol’ Demorats.

Because the Old Staid GOP decided it’s just got to be “business as usual” with John Boehner throned for a third time as Speaker of the House.

Ho-hum.  Buh-bye to any power the GOP would have wielded to fight the Demorats and Leftists, despite the majority in the House and Senate.

The GOP, once again, not failing to squander whatever advantage it acquires.

And what would a re-coronation of John Boehner be without the waterworks?

Just when you thought, as an actual Conservative, that the GOP might be starting to change, they go and insist upon the path they’ve trod for years: knocking back drinks at local DC watering holes with their buddies, the Demorats.  Back slapping all around.

As Rahm Emanual said, “you never let a serious crisis go to waste,” so the GOP says: “we must never fail to squander a good electoral and tactical political advantage.”

The GOP is broken — and I’m wondering if it can ever be repaired.

Corruption from Demorat Nancy Pelosi: once AGAIN, her husband benefits

And, as is standard with Pelosi’s corruption, it involved the major fiscal benefit of her millionaire husband, Paul.

This is no different.  Uncovered and un-trumpeted by the American Media Maggots.

From the WashingtonFreeBeacon.com:

Pelosi Subsidies Benefit Husband’s Investment in Dem Mega-Donor’s Company

by Lachlan Markay

CEO donated to Pelosi, bundled for Obama, as Dem leader boosted his real estate holdings

The top Democrat in the House of Representatives steered more than a billion dollars in subsidies to a light rail project that benefitted a company run by a high-dollar Democratic donor and in which her husband is a major investor.

When cloud computing giant Salesforce sold a large plot of land to the Golden State Warriors in April, it had House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) to thank for helping to swell real estate prices in the area.

Pelosi has worked for more than a decade to steer taxpayer funds to a light rail project in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood, where Salesforce had planned a new campus. Experts say the project boosted the value of Mission Bay real estate.

The company’s CEO, Marc Benioff, is a high-dollar Democratic donor. Pelosi and her leadership PAC are among the recipients of his generous campaign contributions. Pelosi’s husband is also a major Salesforce investor.

The most important sentence: “PELOSI’S HUSBAND IS ALSO A MAJOR SALESFORCE INVESTOR.”

Follow the bread-crumbs and follow the corruption.  Translated: follow the Pelosis.

Question: did Nancy “marry up” or did Paul Pelosi “marry up”?

Paul Frank Pelosi (born April 15, 1940 in San Francisco) is an American businessman who owns and operates Financial Leasing Services, Inc., a San Francisco, California-based real estate and venture capital investment and consulting firm. In addition, he is the owner of the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the United Football League.

And:

Pelosi’s office did not respond to questions about whether that might constitute a conflict of interest.

The Democratic leader’s investments in companies with business before the House came under intense scrutiny in 2011 and 2012 when Congress debated measures governing “insider trading” by members of Congress.

An eventual law imposing stricter regulations on members’ financial activities even included language informally dubbed the “Pelosi provision” due to her and her husband’s participation in IPOs of companies actively lobbying for or against federal legislation.

A tad bit more detail:

Two stops on the extended light rail line are about three blocks from a four-story office building owned by Paul Pelosi.

C’mon, that’s just an evil and random fragment of chance.

Nancy Pelosi: a pay cut would undermine “dignity” of the job

Right.

Nancy PelosiFrom TheHill.com:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that she opposes a cut in congressional pay because it would diminish the dignity of lawmakers’ jobs.

“I don’t think we should do it; I think we should respect the work we do,” Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. “I think it’s necessary for us to have the dignity of the job that we have rewarded.”

So remember, boys and girls, the moral of the story is:

When your boss or your company suggests you take a pay cut, you can quote a Famous Demorat and say: “I’m sorry, I can’t do that; it would undermine the dignity of my job.”

It’ll work every time.  Guaranteed.

Why Fornicalia is well and truly lost:

And this is no “Urban Myth.”

No Photoshop, no digital effects.  This is completely, 100% accurate:

SFPD Chief Heather Fong, at left, is the first outwardly lesbian Chief of Police in San Francisco’s history.

Theresa Sparks, center, is a former male.  She is president of the San Francisco Police Commission and CEO of a multi-million dollar sex toy retailer.  She is transgender.

Sgt Stephen Thorne, at right, a former female, is the first transgender male SFPD police officer.

But — of course — I couldn’t tell any of that by the photograph.  Because that would be wrong.  Or perhaps insightful.  You choose.

San Francisco’s representative is — brace yourself — Nancy Pelosi.

Any questions from the audience?
