The 2013 GOP: Are you kidding me?

Happy New Year’s Eve, Eve, Fairfield!

At this time of year, it’s traditional for journalists and reporters to recap the past year’s major stories. I took the high road in this Daily Republic column during 2013, and instead of shamelessly bragging about how right I was about everything in 2012, we reviewed how wrong Fox News had been. This year, let’s take another look at the blooper reel and examine the congressional highlights of 2013.

As you probably know, the past few Congresses have been the least productive in history. In my Feb. 20, 2012, Daily Republic column, “Kick out the jams, America,” I noted that for the year 2011, Congress had passed only 90 laws, “a modern-era low.” Even the infamous 80th Congress of 1947-48, which President Truman notably dubbed the “Do-Nothing Congress,” passed 1,729 bills. We’re at the one-year mark of the current, 113th Congress and so far, only 58 laws have been enacted, another new low. Many of these new laws are simply to rename some federal building in honor of a local celebrity.

What was Congress’ biggest accomplishment for 2013? Would you say it was the bipartisan budget that was signed by President Obama last Thursday? Not me. I would give the coveted, fictional trophy for their federal government shutdown in October.

Some of you might question, “Why not Rand Paul’s 13-hour filibuster or Ted Cruz’ 21-hour filibuster?” Well, these were funny, sure, but bottom line, they were pointless ego trips. But the government shutdown, now that actually accomplished something.

The accomplishment was not putting government employees out of work during tough economic times, nor the massive infusion of uncertainty into the American business community and financial markets, nor even the fact that it cost our fragile economy $24 billion, just before Christmas. It was that the giant media lens was focused on the radical right-wing, tea-party fringe of the Republican Party. They held the spotlight for a full 16 days and they finally got their chance to really show America what they could do.

When the government shutdown was over, while the fringe tea partyers took victory laps, the real Republicans, feeling the sting of voter poll numbers, reached across the aisle and started to work with Democrats in Congress. Our new, bipartisan federal budget would have never happened without the tea party debacle.

A defiant, animated and unusually butch Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, spoke to the press on Dec. 12 and took shots at conservative groups – such as Heritage Action and Freedom Works – that forcefully opposed the bipartisan, Ryan-Murray budget deal, even prior to the disclosure of its contents.

“I just think that they’ve lost all credibility,” he said. “They pushed us into this fight to defund Obamacare and to shut down the government. Most of my members know that wasn’t exactly the strategy I had in mind. But if you’ll recall the day before the government reopened, one of these groups stood up and said, ‘Well, we never thought it would work.’ Are you kidding me?”

No, they weren’t. The shutdown was just one more Republican stunt in a continuing, five-year series, trying to prove that Obama’s government is broken. But the latest opinion polls show that most American voters are not that gullible and reasonable Republicans are starting to move away from their radical fringe. Leaders such as Paul Ryan and John Boehner are desperately trying to regroup around the traditional Republican core.

This New Year’s Eve, I’ll toast to their success, and America’s. Cheers.

    Mike, I am shocked you didn't mention the Obama Care rollout as being the biggest Congressional story of the year. It was embarrassing to see how government rolls out a program. Obama's ability to govern is truly the biggest joke in 2013! It will only get better in 2014 when all folks on some sort of medical program get the new government taxes associated with their program.

    Obamacare passage was 2009. The 2013 computer glitches were accomplished by private contractors, since that's the way things are done these days. Republicans want to continually shrink the government and then complain that things aren't getting done properly. Maybe I should do that story.

    Obama's ability to govern despite Republican congressional intransigence has been no joke. I think he finally decide to take Harry Reid's advice on how to deal with the problem. Reid is now the leading congressional voice in Washington, if there was any doubt before. Listen to him and watch him.

    Kirchy when you do Obamacare make sure and mention that the W.H. refuses to make public the number of enrolees. There are whispers of 1 million but that's a far cry from the number that is needed so that there's not another massive big cronney capital bailout of big insurance, also there's no numbers of those that actually paid which would be much less than the 1 million. Will you also indaicte that everyone's insurance premium is going to skyrocket at a greater rate than anytime in history and coverage rationed, or you will not mention anything like that because Obama is a Demo? By the way, before you accuse me, I never watch FOX, I actually try to stomach watching more than 10 minutes of MSNBC before I have to puke over all the pettiness (maybe that's where you get your material?).

    Danny, I've gotten fodder for many more srticles from Fox than from MSNBC. There is usually nothing exciting about the MSNBC's factual content, but the things they say on Fox are usually too funny or too mind boggling to pass up. When i hear the same garbage being peddled as facts here, it often makes me want to set the record straight.

    Patrick, your timing is wonderful. We were just talking about how the right eingers believe in slogans, not facts. I liked Ike, but he was not the president with the sign on his desk. The honor belongs to Democrat, Harry Truman. Now, for the second part of your slogan, how much has Obama increased federal spending? That best way to do this is by an annual average rate of increase/decrease. That way we can compare his spending to the other presidents. Remember that Obama's first year of spending was fiscal 2010, which starred October 1st, 2009. I await your reply, but please, facts, not slogans.

    Democrat Harry Truman also dropped the Atomic Bomb on Japan while they had already been begging to surrender......and FDR...THE CENTRAL FACT OF THE 20TH CENTURY IS THAT FDR AT YALTA DELIVERED 725 MILLION HUMAN BEINGS INTO COMMUNIST SLAVERY To do so, FDR trashed the four freedoms, the Atlantic Charter, his promises and commitments to small democracies, his oath of office, the moral standing of the United States, and he created a perpetual cold war that bankrupted US. To understand the treason at Yalta, is to understand Roosevelt. All of his actions were bent in the same direction - dead left. He unceasingly promoted Communism at home and abroad to the full extent and possibility of his office. FDR was a hard-core Marxist as proved by his speeches - in his first inaugural he proposed 3 planks of the Communist Manifesto. In his first inaugural address, he proposed national land redistribution! Karl Marx explained his plan to destroy all constitutional government: "The surest way to overturn the social order is to debauch the currency." FDR carried that out with a vengeance by taking the US off the gold standard and confiscating all gold. ....Like I keep saying all the Presidents end up working for the Banking Powers via a tag team approach....WE ARE ALL TOO STUPID TO SEE THIS....and Obama is their man also...so would have been Romney.

    StR: Go away. Mike: I don't even have to look it up. Obama has increased federal spending very little, if any, since the last Bush budget. And did the Bush budgets include the cost of his wars? The deficit is caused by the drop in revenue due to the Bush recession.

    A quick Google search of presidential spending comparisons shows very clearly that: "If you torture the numbers long enough, they will confess to anything." What if someone believes that, unlike Mike's favorite comparison methodology, the best way to measure presidential spending is by comparing increases in the national debt during a given administration?

  • rlw895January 01, 2014 - 9:09 am

    Right. The WORST thing the federal government can do in a recession is cut spending. FDR learned that the hard way. If we are worried about the deficits and national debt, we should first measure them as a percentage of GNP, then we should cut spending AND raise revenue in good times. If we want to raise more revenue now without making the economy worse, the only way to do it is through a more progressive tax system. France is doing that, but because that's a socialist government, they are taking a more extreme step than we could or should. The problem we have is it seems the Republicans' highest priority is to avoid increased taxes on high-income or wealth.

    Remember this is targeted against us all al citizens and not really to track terrorists.....Big Brother wants your SOUL, quite literally......InfraGard is a non-profit organization serving as a public-private partnership between U.S. businesses and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The organization describes itself as an information sharing and analysis effort serving the interests and combining the knowledge base of a wide range of members.[1] InfraGard is an association of individuals that facilitates information sharing and intelligence between businesses, academic institutions, state and local law enforcement agencies, and other participants dedicated to prevent hostile acts against the United States.[2] InfraGard's mutual nondisclosure agreements among its members (individuals) and the FBI promotes trusted discussions of vulnerabilities and solutions that companies and individuals may be hesitant to place in the public domain. The information sharing between the organization and government has been criticized by those protecting civil liberties, concerned the membership would be surrogate eyes and ears for the FBI.[3] The group has also been the subject of hacking attacks intended to embarrass the FBI.[4] Local chapters regularly meet to discuss the latest threats or listen to talks from subject matter experts on security issues,[5] with membership open to U.S. citizens at no cost.[6] As of July, 2012, the organization reported membership at over 54,677 (including FBI).[7]

    Hahahahahah! Not out of my way. Good one Mike. Here's one just as good: FOX news (your nemisis) has been voted America's best cable news program for the 12th straight year. Fox more than doubled CNN and MSNBC viewership combined in 2013. Enquiring minds might wonder why. Here's why: More people live in "flyover" country than in LA, NYC, SFO, and BOSTON. These people don't drink the liberal kool-aid by the gallon, and they don't agree with Fox. Fox agrees with them.

    Mr.S: A lot of people do things that aren't good for them because it feels good. Relatively few people read the Foreign Policy journal. It would never win any popularity contests. But do you actually believe the FOX audience is better informed about foreign policy? You and others here like to bring up these popularity contests that really don't mean what you want to believe they mean. All it really means is good marketing can generate a lot of popularity in a generally uninformed population.

    Wow, rlw895. You revealed a lot more about yourself than you probably intended when you revealed that you are proud of yourself for reading the Foreign Policy Journal. For the rest of you readers, the Foreign Policy Journal is a one-man operation and that one man is anti-American and very strongly anti-Israel. So, if anyone thinks rlw895 is a foreign policy expert based on his research, research he says you don't do, then think again. You could probably get better info from Mad Magazine or Saturday Night Live.

    Mr. Smith, you're probably not the best objective person to support FOX. You can't wait for something to hurt Obama politically you've made that clear often. That is why you and so many fellow dreamers like FOX because they say everything you want to hear. Since you don't care about the truth or dare to do the research necessary to find it, you simply regurgitate the garbage they feed you. That is why we have to constantly remind you so we know that you’re getting the real story and in context. Not that it matters, you’ve chosen your path, too bad. Yes Mike gets it, I get it and the majority of voting Americans get it. That will become crystal clear soon enough

    Mr.S: As long as we have our Constitution and follow it, we will be the greatest nation on Earth. Not perfect, but great nonetheless. I fully expect some surprises in 2014. I will predict another bubble burst in the stock market when the Fed is forced to bring up interest rates. That will increase the deficit too, because so much of the federal budget goes to debt service. The answer to many of our economic woes is a much more progressive tax system, recognizing that the economic benefits of American are not equally spread. But I don't expect the Republicans in congress will allow that nor will the Democrats enthusiastically enough pursue it. Certainly not Obama; he would have to have much more public support to lead such a charge. He's very cautious and not willing to take a chance on what promises to be a lost cause. Not a big risk-taker, he.

    I still don't see how four Americans were sacrificed to protect that narrative. They may have died because they BELIEVED that narrative, but if anyone knew the security situation in Benghazi, it was Chris Stevens, and he went there anyway. He was brave and took a risk to do his job. Sometimes when a person does that, bad things happen. I don't see any point in blaming anyone else except the murderers who attacked the Benghazi mission when he and the others happened to be there. I don't think there was a plan to kill Stevens, but we may never know.

This from a 2010 Genie Energy press release:............................ Claude Pupkin, CEO of Genie Oil and Gas, commented, “Genie’s success will ultimately depend, in part, on access to the expertise of the oil and gas industry and to the financial markets. Jacob Rothschild and Rupert Murdoch are extremely well regarded by and connected to leaders in these sectors. Their guidance and participation will prove invaluable.” ................OK so this is part of the reason Obama/Hillary/now Kerry? was funding the al Qaeda and other rebels in Syria....Why they were shipping arms from Benghazi, thru Turkey to Syria... .

    RLW: It is believed by many that the Obama administration wanted very much to show that the situation in Libya had "normalized" and that a strong show of military defense at our mission there would undermine that posture. In addition, I believe the ongoing investigation has found that for whatever reason, requests by mission personnel for more security in the months before the attack were denied.

    Yes, we're not a nation of unlimited resources such that we can harden every target against terrorist attacks. I don't know why Stevens chose to go to Benghazi on 9/11, but he must have felt it was safe enough for him to take the risk. But it WAS a risk. He certainly knew that. Sometimes bad things happen. Would you prefer we do like we did after the first 9/11? "Take off your shoes; now bend over." I got a TSA pass last time I flew; we're just now getting our courage and good sense back. An overreaction that wastes our national resources guarding everything will mean the terrorists have won. So you'll find "whatever reason" is a good one.

I don't think they believed their non-actions put our people in undue jeopardy, given the situation. Or at least, they hoped that was the case. They were wrong. The investigation continues. Let's see what the final report shows down the road. Of course, the longer it takes, the more opportunity for the NY Times and others to revise the history of this event to give Obama and Hilary a pass.

    Ok, Mr. S, i get it. There are a thousand issues and we may be on opposite sides on ten of them. That said, if Obama did not intentionally try to kill those four people, as you kindly pointed out, could you just as easily say he had nothing to do with that incident? Could you say that our embassies are prime targets around the world and they have been and will continue to be attacked for the forseeable future, no matter who is at the helm?

    Mr.S: I agree with you; at worst it was a mistake. A mistake not to have more or better security at that particular site. A mistake for Stevens to go there on 9/11 without more security. But I believe there were good reasons for both. We're Monday morning quarterbacking here; so are the congressional investigators, I suspect. If that's what you mean by lives being "sacrificed," OK, but I believe that's not an objective word selection.

    Mr. Smith, a helpful hint. Type your comments into Word or similar document and save them. Then you can copy/paste to the site and not worry about them getting lost. Hope that lessens the frustration here. If you're using a phone, you're way better than me and I have no formula for that! ;)

  • Today Friday on InfowarsJanuary 03, 2014 - 9:13 am

    On the Friday, January 3 transmission of the Alex Jones Show, Alex breaks down how, despite temperatures hitting new record lows, global warming alarmists will try to spin the cold weather into an omen indicative of human induced climate change. Alex also addresses the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' lack of transparency regarding the federal government's purchase of 14 million doses of potassium iodide, a buy which many speculate was due to the volatile nature of Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant. On today's show, Alex welcomes Reverend Clenard Childress of blackgenocide.org to examine how abortion is still the preferred eugenics method, used to cull the masses, as well as “purify” different races and social classes. Alex also invites former Senior Policy Advisor for the U.S. Department of Education, Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt, to analyze how socialism is subtly promoted in American schools and textbooks. She'll also divulge who is actually behind the complete internationalization of education. We'll also cover the Obamacare meltdown and take your calls on this worldwide broadcast.wwwinfowarscom

    Wikipedia.....list of companies based in London.........This is a list of companies based in London, England. London is the capital city of England and the United Kingdom. With an estimated 8,308,369 residents in 2012, London is the most populous region, urban zone and metropolitan area in the United Kingdom. London generates approximately 20 per cent of the UK's GDP (or $446 billion in 2005); while the economy of the London metropolitan area—the largest in Europe—generates approximately 30 per cent of the UK's GDP (or an estimated $669 billion in 2005). London is one of the pre-eminent financial centres of the world and vies with New York City as the most important location for international finance. Over half of the UK's top 100 listed companies (the FTSE 100) and over 100 of Europe's 500 largest companies have their headquarters in central London. Over 70 per cent of the FTSE 100 are located within London's metropolitan area, and 75 per cent of Fortune 500 companies have offices in London.......( I am on an exciting goose chase to try to figure out......Who is the ultimate financial Dungeon Master ? )....If you are so smart U rlw U would help me figure this out, but being the ponce that U R U will not, hey only fair U called me a fat moron, so do not B upset )

    Google...Volgograd and the Conquest of Eurasia: Has the House of Saud seen its Stalingrad? By Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya Global Research ....the point this article does not point out is that our "Washington" foreign policy is really set by the Rockefeller/Rothschild City of London and French Rothschild banking establishments, because our government is not our government it belongs to the Bankers.....also important is that the Bankers play both sides of every conflict and set up all the parties to kill each other....in other words realistically there are no good guys on either side, it is a rigged fight only set up for profits and destruction of both sides of the conflict................................... Global Research, January 03, 2014 It has been assessed with high confidence by outsiders concerned by the House of Saud’s inner dealings that Prince Bandar is one of the three Al-Saud princes managing Saudi Arabia’s security and foreign policy; the other two being Prince Abdulaziz bin Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, the Saudi deputy foreign minister and one of King Abdullah’s point men on Syria due to his ties to Syria from his maternal side, and Prince Mohammed bin Nayef bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, the interior minister. All three of them are tied to the United States more than any of their predecessors. Prince Bandar himself has a long history of working closely with the United States, which explains the endearing moniker of “Bandar Bush” that he is widely called by. “Chemical Bandar” can be added to the list too, because of the reports about his ties to the Syrian chemical weapon attacks in Ghouta.

He also covers the continuation of a record number of firearm sales as the public reacts to ongoing efforts by the government to diminish the Second Amendment and whittle away the ability of Americans to protect themselves as the economy continues its slow motion tailspin. Finally, Alex takes a look at a brazen effort by the liberal establishment media to associate the Duck Dynasty gun line with mass shooting. Alex also takes your calls on today's worldwide broadcast. wwwinfowarscom

    On November 1, 1961, an agreement ( became known as The London Gold Pool ).....was reached between the United States and seven European countries to cooperate in achieving a shared, and very clearly, stated aim.....The signatories to this particular agreement were, in alphabetical order, the central banks of Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States; but unlike other agreements of the time — such as that signed at Bretton Woods in 1944 — this one had no catchy title and was agreed upon with no fanfare and no publicity. In fact, this particular agreement was, if not exactly secret, then secretive by design.....to cut story short how the Federal Reserve transferred much of the US gold to Europe...

  • http://explosivereports.com/2013/01/28/house-of-rothschild-hoarding-gold-in-face-of-coming-collapse/January 05, 2014 - 8:11 pm

    For this reason, Thomas argued, the hoarding of gold is being done with the aim of redistributing it later on to those nations (or supra-nations, such as the EU and China) the elite have destined to be the future global engines after the old one has been discarded:.................................... “It is entirely possible that all currencies could receive a shake-up, and an entire worldwide system of gold-backed currencies may develop. If this were to occur, the countries that held the largest amounts of gold at that time would be out in front economically.”...............................This puts the recent “appointment” of Rothschild by Spanish Mountain Gold somewhat into perspective doesn’t it? It seems the ancient House of Rothschild has feigned a retreat from gold in the beginning of this century, only to then snatch it again at a good prize and move it into the East- their future global engine. When Baron Benjamin de Rothschild was asked by Israeli newspaper Haaretz what the family’s intentions are in regards to China, he answered unhesitatingly “to increase our focus in that region”..................................... As the elite’s engine of control is incrementally deconstructed in the West, the world’s gold is gradually moving towards its new engine in the East.

Although I have read in the past Illuminati plans that this role was suppose to go to Russia.....anyway Russian or Chinese ( see people, the United States currently enforces their war efforts, but we are suppose to be a Christian Country and the Luciferians hate Christians, so down we go......but remember they actually set up and arm both sides of the conflict ) that still means a lot of Russians and Chinese will have to be reduced population wise.....Let's all cooperate and live worldwide and GET RID OF THE BANKERS....Please Militaries WAKE UP....let us just refuse to fight each other......Americans protest all US Military Intervention....and remember 9/11 was an inside job
