Rep. John P. Murtha (D-Pa.) threatened to deny any further spending projects to a Republican who challenged him over an earmark last week, a violation of House rules.

According to the draft resolution, Murtha shouted at and chastised Rogers on the House floor Thursday for offering a motion last week to challenge $23 million Murtha requested in an intelligence bill.

Murtha had requested the money to prevent the administration from shuttering the National Drug Intelligence Center in Johnstown, Pa., which is part of Murtha’s district.

“I hope you don’t have any earmarks in the defense appropriations bills because they are gone, and you will not get any earmarks now and forever,” Murtha told Rogers, according to the draft transcript given to The Politico.

“This is not the way we do things here – and is that supposed to make me afraid of you?” Rogers replied.

“That’s the way I do it,” Murtha said.

What ever happened to earmark reform??

After losing a string of embarrassing votes on the House floor because of procedural maneuvering, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has decided to change the current House Rules to completely shut down the floor to the minority.

The Democratic Leadership is threatening to change the current House Rules regarding the Republican right to the Motion to Recommit or the test of germaneness on the motion to recommit. This would be the first change to the germaneness rule since 1822.

National “Surrender Is Not An Option” Day

May 13, 2007 at 12:50 pm (abercrombie, al sharpton, biden, blanco, chirac, clinton, colmes, conyers, democrap, democrat, dodd, edwards, feingold, Feinstein, franks, green, hillary, jefferson, jesse jackson, kennedy, kucinich, labor union, lampson, leahy, levin, liberal, matsui, McDermott, murtha, nagin, obama, pelosi, politics, rangel, reid, sanchez, sanders, Stephanie Tubbs Jones, ted strickland, Uncategorized, waters, waxman, webb, woolsey)

This Thursday, May 17th has been declared National “Surrender is Not an Option” Day.

To that end, Move America Forward will be sponsoring public protest rallies outside of Senator Harry Reid and Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s offices.  Senator Reid and Speaker Pelosi are currently leading the despicable effort to undercut both funding and support for our troops serving on the frontlines in the war on terrorism.

Here’s specific information on the protest rallies and how you can help:

* Thursday, May 17, 2007 – Rallies at 10:30 AM Pacific Time

Locations:

1) Outside the office of Senator Harry Reid
333 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Suite 8016 Las Vegas, NV 89101

2) Outside the office of Speaker Nancy Pelosi 450 Golden Gate Ave. – 14th Floor San Francisco, CA 94102

We will be gathering outside of the office buildings that Reid’s & Pelosi’s district offices are held. 

We ask that participants bring along white “surrender flags” (make a white flag out of any white material/cloth).  Blue Star Mom, Deborah Johns, has recommended that we put in black ink/paint on each flag “Surrender is Not an Option” so that it doesn’t look like *we* the participants are recommending surrender.

Democrats Break Campaign Promises

May 12, 2007 at 1:51 pm (abercrombie, al sharpton, biden, blanco, chirac, clinton, colmes, conyers, democrap, democrat, dodd, edwards, feingold, Feinstein, franks, green, hillary, jefferson, jesse jackson, kennedy, kucinich, labor union, lampson, leahy, levin, liberal, matsui, McDermott, murtha, nagin, obama, pelosi, politics, rangel, reid, sanchez, sanders, Stephanie Tubbs Jones, ted strickland, Uncategorized, waters, waxman, webb, woolsey)

House Democrats are suddenly balking at the tough lobbying reforms they touted to voters last fall as a reason for putting them in charge of Congress.

Now that they are running things, many Democrats want to keep the big campaign donations and lavish parties that lobbyists put together for them. They’re also having second thoughts about having to wait an extra year before they can become high-paid lobbyists themselves should they retire or be defeated at the polls.

The growing resistance to several proposed reforms now threatens passage of a bill that once seemed on track to fulfill Democrats’ campaign promise of cleaner fundraising and lobbying practices.

Ted Strickland’s Report Card

Ted Strickland Report Card – The First 100 Days

OTHER NOTES:

Ted is a nice person. But his performance has been disappointing so far this year. He appears to listen well, and he likes to make friends by handing out a lot of goodies.  But he hasn’t made much progress in key subjects.  The expectations for his work were a lot higher than what he produced.


 

Education – Grade: F

 

Promised to make school funding a top priority if elected governor but still has no plan after his first 100 days in office.

 

·         Strickland last year:  “He provided no details [on school funding], and asked afterward when he would unveil those details, Strickland said, ‘I will do that if I win this election.’” (The Columbus Dispatch, 8/18/06)

 

·         Strickland this year:  “After nearly a year of campaigning, voters should have a pretty good idea of what to expect from a Gov. Ted Strickland. But it could be a year or so before they know exactly what the Democrat plans to do about school funding.” (Toledo Blade, 1/07/07)

 

·         Why wait?  “Strickland constantly cited fixing funding as a top priority during the campaign. If it’s so important, why wait? … All this Statehouse maneuvering leaves many wondering whether Strickland is a wise policymaker or a governor unsure of how he wants to lead.” (Editorial, The Plain Dealer, 2/21/07)

 

·         High Expectations: “Democrats are holding up Strickland as a savior of Ohio’s ailing school-funding system.” (The Columbus Dispatch, 3/15/07)

 

·         No Results:  “Where is the education plan he promised during his campaign, when he told us to trust him, it would all be revealed after he was elected? Strickland has offered nothing but a lame attempt to put a big tax increase on the ballot.”  (Peter Bronson, Cincinnati Enquirer, 2/20/07)

 

Rather than making school funding a “priority,” Strickland unveiled a budget that gives no additional support to nearly half of Ohio’s school districts.

 

·         No increase:  “Under the terms of the governor’s State of the State address, 302 of the 613 school districts in Ohio will receive no increase in state dollars in the 2007-08 school year, which runs concurrently with the first year of the biennial budget.  The financial news from Columbus doesn’t get any better for another 242 school districts that will see no increase in state funding in the 2008-09 school year.”  (Akron Beacon Journal, 3/16/07)

 

·         Disappointing & Misleading:  “Disappointing is the claim that his budget would accomplish far more than it would. The assertion is misleading, far removed from the transparency in school funding that he has promised.” (Editorial, Akron Beacon Journal, 3/20/07)

 

Strickland used his first budget to wage war on school choice, depriving thousands of low-income, often-minority students of a choice in their education.

·         Denying Opportunity:  “We’d have thought that with Ohio’s many other problems, a new Governor would have better things to do than deny opportunity for poor kids to escape the worst schools in the state.”  (Editorial, The Wall Street Journal, 3/29/07)

·         Inflexible:  “For the good of Ohio’s students, Gov. Ted Strickland should rethink his determination to shut the door to proven charter schools while the entire system is revisited. This inflexibility will hurt students and undermine community attempts to reform education.” (Editorial, The Columbus Dispatch, 04/10/07)

 

·         Wrong:  “[Strickland’s] solution — a moratorium — is wrong…Ohio’s public schools are better today because of the competition charter schools and vouchers have created.” (Editorial, Dayton Daily News, 03/25/07)

 

Strickland’s war on choice even impacts 45,000 Ohio college students, who would lose their higher education grants and therefore dramatically cut the budgets of Ohio’s colleges and universities.

 

·         Hurts Middle-Class Families:  “About two-thirds of Ohio students who currently receive state aid for attending private colleges or universities would no longer be eligible for the program under Gov. Ted Strickland’s proposed budget. … The idea is sending chills up the spines of private college financial aid officials, who say it will hurt middle-class families the most.”  (Dayton Daily News, 3/26/07)

 

 

Math – Grade: F

 

Strickland had to pull his budget projections after his school funding calculations didn’t add up.

 

·         Miscalculations:  “Gov. Ted Strickland’s budget office is reviewing projected funding for Ohio’s 613 school districts in the next two years after analysts discovered a few miscalculations that shortchanged some schools and overpaid others.”  Strickland’s numbers “give one district a $2.5 million windfall.  Another district is shortchanged by $300,000.” (Akron Beacon Journal, 4/06/07)

 

Much of Strickland’s budget is built on “accounting maneuvers” and “one-time” money.

 

·         One-time money: “Despite Strickland’s common-sense rhetoric, his budget appears to spend one-time money – billions of dollars Ohio gained in a legal settlement with tobacco companies – on every-time costs.” (Tom Suddes, The Plain Dealer, 3/18/07)

 

·         Don’t be fooled:  “Ted Strickland would like Ohioans to believe that his two-year state budget plan achieves a remarkable feat. …Don’t be fooled.” (Editorial, Akron Beacon Journal, 3/20/07)

 

 

Government – Grade: F

 

On his first day in office, Strickland and Democrats illegally violated the state constitution by vetoing legislation that had already been enacted into law, prompting a court challenge by Republican legislators.

 

·         “The Republican argument centers on the idea that Democrat Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner did not have the legal standing to honor Strickland’s request to return the bill to him.  It is a compelling point. …Paraphrasing Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird, the Republicans have a good chance, they have more than a good chance, of winning the lawsuit.”  (
Dennis Willard, Akron Beacon Journal, 2/04/07)

 

 

Economics – Grade: F

 

Strickland repeatedly promised on the campaign trail that “no tax increases are needed” to fund his agenda, but less than 100 days after taking office he changed his tune.

 

·         No New Taxes:  “Gov. Ted Strickland would consider going to the ballot to ask for a tax increase to fund schools if other options for improving the state’s education outlook fail, the Democrat said Thursday.”  (
Associated Press, 2/16/07)

 

Strickland told voters he had “no plans to raise taxes,” but his first budget increases the tax burden on Ohioans.

 

·         Calls it ‘Raising Revenue’:  “Already having promised not to raise taxes or increase fees, Strickland said eliminating some tax breaks for businesses or individuals is one way to raise revenue.”  (
Associated Press, 3/13/07)

 

·         Really Means ‘Raising Taxes’:  “[Strickland] said he intends to propose eliminating some ‘tax breaks.’ That would mean higher taxes for some businesses and individuals…”  (Editorial, Cincinnati Enquirer, 3/14/07)

 

Strickland even opposes a Democrat-sponsored tax cut for Ohio’s low-income taxpayers.

 

·         Won’t Cut Taxes:  “A Democratic state representative is pushing for income tax breaks similar to federal credits to the poor, but Gov. Ted Strickland said Wednesday that he is withholding support to protect the state budget.”  (
Associated Press, 1/31/07)

 

Strickland’s budget eliminates a sales tax allowance for 192,000 businesses in Ohio, creating $37 million a year in new costs for retailers and consumers.

 

·         Hurting the Economy:  “A coalition of leading Ohio business advocates today said Governor Strickland’s proposal to cut the vendors’ allowance on sales tax collection and remittance would hurt Ohio’s retail industry and the state’s economy.”  (Release, Ohio Council of Retail Merchants, 3/29/07)

Despite promising to “turnaround” Ohio’s economy and focus on job creation, Strickland has been criticized by campaign supporters for his inaction.

 

·         He’s Liberal:  “[Ohio Council of Retail Merchants] President John C. Mahaney Jr. said he still considers Strickland an honorable man but thinks the governor has devoted more of his energy to social issues than to the economy. ‘He’s a very good guy, he’s quite sincere, he’s liberal, he wants to take care of people, and there’s nothing wrong with that,’ Mahaney said. ‘What I have yet to see is the same intensity to restart Ohio’s struggling economy.’”  (The Columbus Dispatch, 4/15/07)

 

 

Social Studies – Grade: F

 

Despite the fact that teen pregnancies have dropped more than 20 percent in Ohio since 1997, Strickland declared war on abstinence programs, claiming they don’t work.

 

·         Peter Bronson, Cincinnati Enquirer: “Let’s face it: Kids will smoke, drink and use other drugs anyhow, so let’s forget about telling them to ‘just say no’ and teach them how to use ashtrays, aspirin and ‘safe drugs’ properly.  If that sounds like a page from the Michael Jackson Guide to Parenting, why is Gov. Ted Strickland using the same lazy logic to kill abstinence education in Ohio?” (Cincinnati Enquirer, 04/05/07)

 

Just weeks into office, Strickland the Methodist minister generated national criticism by announcing he would not open Ohio to war-torn Iraqi refugees.

 

·         “Gov. Ted Strickland manages to look both petty and ill-
informed when he says Ohio doesn’t want an influx of Iraqi refugees. …The governor is not just being narrow-minded, but also apparently acting in ignorance of his own party’s position.” (Editorial, The Plain Dealer, 2/18/07)

 

·         “The deeper question is about more than numbers. It’s about what obligations the United States has, particularly to Iraqis who have risked so much to help the U.S. venture.  Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland last week had one answer. It was as thoughtless as it was heartless.”  (Editorial, USA Today, 2/18/07)

 

·         “While he was running for office, the words ‘Strickland’ and ‘Methodist minister’ were inseparable in news stories. So it’s fair to ask: What kind of minister slams the door on desperate people who are legally coming to America?” (Peter Bronson, Cincinnati Enquirer, 2/20/07)

 

·         “…The governor needs to be more forward-thinking in his approach to current problems, rather looking to blame someone for past mistakes. Finger-pointing is not how problems are solved. The people of Ohio voted for change in 2006 and change is what they expect. We wanted to rise above partisan bickering and take care of the problems our state faces. We deserve better.”  (Editorial, The Lantern, The Ohio State University 2/19/07)

 

·         “Demonstrating his disagreement with the Bush administration by shunning needy refugees is an unworthy act of callousness.” (Editorial, Cincinnati Enquirer, 2/17/07)

 

 

Ethics – Grade: F

 

·         Strickland last year:  “U.S. Rep. Ted Strickland told a closed-door Toledo audience over the weekend that he would hire ex-convicts for state government jobs if Ohioans elect him governor in the fall.”  (Jim Tankersley, Toledo Blade, 3/08/06)

 

o   Strickland this year:  “Gov. Ted Strickland, who ran for office promising to fight the culture of corruption in state government, has decided to ask fewer questions than his predecessor, Bob Taft, about potentially embarrassing or problematic secrets of employees destined to fill the bulk of 5,681 patronage jobs in his administration.”  (
Dennis Willard, Akron Beacon Journal, 1/21/07)

 

·         Strickland last year:  “If anyone thinks they’re going to give a contribution to Ted Strickland and have that in some way affect any official action I might take as governor, they are going to be in for a huge, huge disappointment,” Mr. Strickland said.  (Toledo Blade, 6/11/06)

 

o   Strickland this year:  Asked the State Controlling Board to give no-bid contracts to 18 consulting firms whose PACs or principals (individual donors) made $2,000 or more in contributions last year to the Strickland campaign or to his inaugural committee.  (Campaign Finance Reports, Ohio Secretary of State)

 

·         Strickland last year:  “[Strickland] said he will set an example of following not only the letter of the law but the spirit, as well, and hire people of top character and integrity who possess a ‘Peace Corps spirit.’”  (
Dennis Willard, Akron Beacon Journal, 8/27/06)

 

o   Strickland this year:  “A former governor’s aide once accused of lying to a grand jury that was investigating state hiring practices is among the new hires of the Strickland administration.”  (The Plain Dealer, 4/14/07)

 

·         Strickland campaigned on ending the “culture of corruption” in government, but 100 days into office his friends and contributors are cashing in.

 

Former Strickland campaign fundraiser David Leland has become a registered lobbyist.  “Leland, a Democrat and a former state party chairman, has something the others don’t: the ear of Ted Strickland, Ohio’s new governor.” (The Plain Dealer, 4/01/07)

 

Former Cincinnati Mayor Charlie Luken, a Democrat, is also using his Strickland connections as a new lobbyist: Luken got to know Strickland and his top aides well when he played Republican gubernatorial opponent Ken Blackwell during Strickland’s months of debate rehearsals. “It’s fair to say business picked up in the last few months,” said Luken, whose clients include FirstEnergy Corp. “The new administration has meant good things for me, more business activity.”  (The Plain Dealer, 4/01/07)

Pelosi Culture of Corruption !!!

May 8, 2007 at 2:16 pm (abercrombie, al sharpton, biden, chirac, clinton, colmes, conyers, democrap, democrat, dodd, edwards, feingold, Feinstein, franks, green, hillary, jefferson, jesse jackson, kennedy, kucinich, labor union, lampson, leahy, levin, liberal, matsui, McDermott, murtha, nagin, obama, pelosi, rangel, reid, sanchez, sanders, waters, waxman, webb, woolsey)

 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi included a provision in a water redevelopment bill that will benefit property her husband owns in San Francisco.

She should explain to the American people what the earmark is all about and convince people there’s no financial benefit to her,” he said.

John Hart, a spokesman for Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., said that “on its face it appears to be a conflict of interest.”

Pelosi’s project was part of the $15 billion Water Resources Development Act.

Her investor husband gets rental income from four buildings in a nearby commercial district.

Another Lefty Wacko

May 7, 2007 at 1:00 pm (abercrombie, al sharpton, biden, chirac, clinton, colmes, conyers, democrap, democrat, dodd, edwards, feingold, Feinstein, franks, green, hillary, jefferson, jesse jackson, kennedy, kucinich, labor union, lampson, leahy, levin, liberal, matsui, McDermott, murtha, nagin, obama, pelosi, politics, rangel, reid, sanchez, sanders, Uncategorized, waters, waxman, webb, woolsey)

     Apparently, saving the whales is more important than saving 5.5 billion people. Paul Watson, founder and president of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and famous for militant intervention to stop whalers, now warns mankind is “acting like a virus” and is harming Mother Earth.

     Watson’s May 4 editorial asked the question “The Beginning of the End for Life as We Know it on Planet Earth?” Then he left no doubt about the answer. “We are killing our host the planet Earth,” he claimed and called for a population drop to less than 1 billion.

     The commentary reminded readers that Watson had called humans a disease before and he wasn’t sorry. “I was once severely criticized for describing human beings as being the ‘AIDS of the Earth.’ I make no apologies for that statement,” the column continued.

     Watson was invoking the worst of Robert Malthus, an English political economist who claimed that mankind was overpopulating the earth. That claimed first appeared in the late 1700s. Watson urged some solutions for mankind as part of a process to “need to re-wild the planet”:

·        No human community should be larger than 20,000 people and separated from other communities by wilderness areas.” New York, London, Paris, Moscoware all too big. Then again, so are Moose Jaw, Timbuktuand even Annapolis, Md.

·        “We need vast areas of the planet where humans do not live at all and where other species are free to evolve without human interference.”

·        “We need to radically and intelligently reduce human populations to fewer than one billion.”

·        “Sea transportation should be by sail. The big clippers were the finest ships ever built and sufficient to our needs. Air transportation should be by solar powered blimps when air transportation is necessary.”

·        At least Watson was generous and said people could still talk with one another across great distances. “Communication systems can link the communities,” he proclaimed from on high.

     The Watson rant kept on going calling for everything from cutting down on the population of domesticated dogs and cats to cutting down on everything else in what he called “simplify, simplify, simplify.”

     Watson essentially called for humans to return to primitive lifestyles. “We need to stop flying, stop driving cars, and jetting around on marine recreational vehicles. The Mennonites survive without cars and so can the rest of us.”

The Real Che, El Paredon

May 6, 2007 at 2:38 pm (abercrombie, al sharpton, biden, chirac, clinton, colmes, conyers, democrap, democrat, dodd, edwards, feingold, Feinstein, franks, green, hillary, jefferson, jesse jackson, kennedy, kucinich, labor union, lampson, leahy, levin, liberal, matsui, McDermott, murtha, nagin, obama, pelosi, politics, rangel, reid, sanchez, sanders, waxman, webb)

“To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is unnecessary…These procedures are an archaic bourgeois detail. This is a revolution! And a revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate. We must create the pedagogy of the The Wall! (El Paredón)” –Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara

 

“A people without hate cannot triumph against the adversary.”

 

“Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any enemy that falls in my hands! My nostrils dilate

while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for

the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!” 

“Hatred as an element of struggle; unbending hatred for the enemy, which pushes a human being beyond his

natural limitations, making him into an effective, violent, selective, and cold-blooded killing machine. This is

what our soldiers must become … ” Che Guevara

He was very ‘brave’ when he was at la Cabaña Fortress murdering innocent            civilians, including a 14 year old child.
