So? we don't need the Department of Homeland security just more bureaucracy ....funny to see posts from liberals advocating ignoring the voices of a minority..


ROFLMAO....the Republicants set up DHS in response to the failure of the Bush administration and they're ignoring the warning signs of an imminent attack on the American homeland.

if you did not think that the GOP could get any crazier then, surprise they just did:

Inhofe’s Insane Climate Denial Speech Tells You Everything You Need to Know About the Republican Party Right Now
March 1, 2015 8:00 p.m.
By Jonathan Chait

A few days ago, Republican Senator James Inhofe delivered a speech about why no intelligent person should ever vote for the Republican Party. This was not, obviously, the putative subject of his speech, merely its subtext and inescapable conclusion...

...Inhofe’s argument was breathtakingly devoid of a factual or logical grasp of its subject matter...

...Cranks like Inhofe have veto power. Even if Bush were inclined to disagree, and we have no evidence he is, he can’t.

And so a stunt like Inhofe tossing a snowball on the Senate floor and claiming this refutes climate science actually tells you everything you need to know about giving the Republican Party power over government policy.

This is how some teapublicans spend taxpayer monies:


WASHINGTON (AP) — Illinois Rep. Aaron Schock, a rising Republican star already facing an ethics inquiry, has spent taxpayer and campaign funds on flights aboard private planes owned by some of his key donors, The Associated Press has found. There also have been other expensive travel and entertainment charges, including for a massage company and music concerts.

The expenses highlight the relationships that lawmakers sometimes have with donors who fund their political ambitions, an unwelcome message for a congressman billed as a fresh face of the GOP. The AP identified at least one dozen flights worth more than $40,000 on donors' planes since mid-2011.


Let's not waste taxpayer dollars on taxpayers!

Apparently Hillary is playing games with regards to her email.She was required to use a govenment account.Hers was personal.More control over editing?

Jeb was transparent with his mail correspondance.She can't change her spots.

Yep and Jeb is also an ultra conservative right-winger with many skeletons in his closest, so if he does run he is going to have to answer questions about:

Terri Schiavo

Miguel Recarey

Orlando Bosch


just to name a few.

Yep, and you are about the only one who really thinks that. Everybody else thinks he's a moderate.

So if we band together & convince the conservatives that he really is an ultra conservative right-winger, he will also get that voting bloc behind him & win that primary election for sure.

Oh it will have legs alright, and those legs will be every personality on Fox hammering it home as hard as they can.

While overlooking the fact that Colin Powell did it, or the fact that the regulations she allegedly broke did not come into effect until after she left the position.

So what ever you do, skip that facts and full Benghazi on this derp.

Oh ... Oh ... I know!

If Netanyahu loses his re-election bid, the republicans could always put him up ... he's doing a pretty good job of trying to take over US foreign policy right now. He'd get the vote of the teabaggers and all the people who buy the myth that Israel is in some sort of imminent danger ...

Killing off the Palestinians must not be keeping him busy enough, so he thinks he can just swoop in here and tell our political leaders how to conduct themselves when negotiating with other nations.

Go home BN ... take Boehner with you!

^^^^^ Oh yes, it does have legs and even democrats are very worried about what is going on in hearing this. Hillary is it, there are other token candidates that will say they are running but Hillary is the only "name" that people know of and that "name" is not a name we will ever care to hear about during the Presidential campaign. The democrats are reeling and they have no backup.

"he's doing a pretty good job of trying to take over US foreign policy right now.".........Thank God someone has the balls to have some foreign policy ability. Our President is MIA.

Nice try....and I say that because there isn't one teapublican issue that you've disagreed with in years.

In other news it appears that 50 teapublicans cannot hold the country hostage over DHS funding. In a resounding defeat for conservative republicans and teapublicans the House passed funding for DHS that covers the fiscal year.

AAAaannnd...

They had to beg the vote of almost every Dem in the House to do it...

They dug themselves a hole... and had to beg... BEG I tells ya... the Dems to throw them a rope to climb out...

And even better yet... Did the Dems play the Repub's "Party of No" game with them...? Nope... they tossed them the rope...

When... in the last six years... have the Repubs ever been so... magnanimous and compromising...?

When (within the last six years) has either party not been about the stewing, finger-pointing bullshit? 90% of them are among the greatest window lickers in our time.

Joe, it was a forgone conclusion the GOP would have to pass DHS funding with no strings....only teapuppets applaud the fvcked up failed strategy of attaching immigration to the bill. Oh, it was choice to see Boehner grovel for Democrat votes!!!!!

And the person best suited to reach the largest voter base will be Jeb Bush.Besides his Florida base he would well suited to take the sunbelt, possibly including California?

He has already critiqued the party, he will play the necessary tough guy to the electorate.

Which is blowing up in his face.

For starters:

Jeb Bush's emails: Total transparency or violation of privacy?
By Caitlin****on February 10, 2015 6:04 PM Yahoo News

In an attempt to present himself as transparent, tech-savvy and approachable, Jeb Bush may have unintentionally violated the privacy of thousands of former Florida constituents.

http://news.yahoo.com/jeb-bush-s-emails--total-transparency-or-violation-of-privacy-222555766.html


Then you have:

Jeb Bush's Email Transparency Is a Total Joke
Sam Biddle
2/13/15 4:30pm

And since Bush's commitment to transparency is so strong that he was willing to sacrifice the privacy interests of dozens and perhaps hundreds of his former constituents by publishing their social security numbers, health data, and telephone numbers, Gawker has also submitted Freedom of Information Act requests for Jeb Bush's files at the IRS, Social Security Administration, and FBI, and have asked him to provide a personal privacy waiver in those cases, too.

Gawker salutes Jeb Bush and his dedication to an informed electorate. We can't wait to see full picture of his governorship, and make up our own minds, and look forward to his help in bringing this important information about his tenure to the public.

No need to worry, people. Jeb Bush ain't happening.
Conservatives will *not* be selecting Jeb Bush as the party candidate to run for the Presidency.
It will undoubtedly be someone else. His name alone eliminates him from contention.

I agree Eric. There are going to be a lot of good people to hear in the next months ahead. Going to be interesting. Sounds like Ben Carson is getting really close to deciding if he will run. I enjoy listening to that man every time he speaks. We need more like him. Scott Walker also is a strong candidate. And then we have Hillary and all her problems. The democrats ship has sunk. They are trying to put a good spin on her but yikes, she is done before she starts. I doubt she will even be in the public spotlight when this is all done. She will lead a private life and enjoy her "poor" living standards.

...Scott Walker also is a strong candidate.


"We need a leader with that kind of confidence," Walker said. "If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world."

Message 2007 ...Well shucks ... and I so wanted to give still another Bush idiot a chance.

I'm so disappointed! I was really looking forward to voting for him in the Ohio primaries.

I wonder if it's too late to call for Colin Powell's "personal emails" that he used while he was secretary of state?

Message 2008 ...
(Ben Carson) I enjoy listening to that man every time he speaks. We need more like him.
So you really like hearing him say that stuff about how prison turns people gay? Yeah ... he's someone we need in the oval office ...

... Hillary and all her problems.
The teabaggers would love to have such a strong candidate.

Just by the way ... I hear they're trying a suspected "terrorist" in Boston. I wonder if they sent him to Gitmo for torturing first? Hmmmm ... I wonder if he is sentenced if we will be able to find a prison here in continental USA that we can be sure will be secure enough to house him?

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is sunk with her hdr22(at)clintonemail.com email debacle.
She was running an email server out of her New York home to bypass State Department hardware.
Who knows how much top-secret content was shared. She likely won't get a "free pass" on that behavior.
