Never thought I'd say it, but I agree with everything Turley said to Gowdy.

Is Charles Schumer the sleaziest politician in America? He truly makes my skin crawl. I am so glad I never took up permanent residency in New York and have to be represented by this snake. Bad enough we have a split state in Florida but even as bad as Nelson is he is not a sleaze-ball.

Something from a previous (one of those damn near interminable) threads I missed, DoT? Anyone agreeing with Turley in this neck of the woods is notable.

Wait, which one is the good guy, Turley or Toobin?

Jack,I agree about Schumer.What a contrast to what he is spewing and the fundraising letter we got from Collins today. I'm convinced that the RINOs,moderates,centrists or whatever they are called are naive,clueless or stupid.Her letter says"...progress is impossible unless we look past political slogans to reasonable compromises..."
Does Schumer sound like he wants compromise?

Rick Ballard

It's been a while since we had a -300 Friday. Are the Fed TBTF pump pimps slacking off or has reality crept up and overcome them?

Just cuz absolutely nobody has any top line increases worth mentioning and capex has become an obsolete term is no reason to believe the green shoots of recovery aren't ready to burst into bloom. The sixth spring is always a charm.

Or not.

"Wait, which one is the good guy, Turley or Toobin?"

I've always detested both of them. But Turley told Gowdy that Obama's unilateral changes to some laws, and his decision simply not to enforce others against whole categories of defendants, presents the deepest constitutional crisis of his lifetime. And he says he really doesn't know what the remedy might be unless and until somebody can get a court to review some of it.

NK(withnewsoftware)

JiB-- why would war talk drive down the stock market? Our Leftist friends inform us that war is caused by big business war mongering!

NK(withnewsoftware)

Turley is a fool;

Toobin is a disgusting cretin. Don't believe me? ask Jeff Greenfield.

matt

Apparently Obama came out and criticized the Republicans, blaming conservatives for all of the nation's problems.

This is a concerted effort, folks. The democratic Party strategy for the fall is to demonize their opponents in the worst possible terms.

Two days ago Cuomo. Yesterday Schumer. Today Obama. Connect the dots.

Maybe we should hold anti-Obamacare rallies.

NK(withnewsoftware)

My favorite TomM moment this week was Tom re-posting a November 2002 Krugman rant. It was like time stood still.

Slacking Tom? I assume you're off to a spinning class!

So this fellow, was the one who commented for the latest iteration of the two minute hate, re renditions in Poland

Captain Hate

Turley is a fool

I wouldn't go that far; I think he's a fairly smart guy who hangs out with the wrong crowd and can't understand why he feels scummy for doing so. Let me put it this way: There's no way that Toobin would've ever said to Gowdy what Turley did (I was gonna type JT until I realized that applied to both; what are the chances?).

Rick Ballard

JiB,

I wouldn't dream of offering a rational opinion regarding what triggered TBTF pimps to sit on their thumbs rather than cobble up more props for a rigged market. The market would have to drop 300 points for fifteen days straight before it hit historical valuation levels so today was no big deal but the Fed/TBTF illusion team hasn't allowed very many -2% Friday closes since the beginning of the Great BOzo Recovery.

I'm just curious as to why the madams at the Fed called off their pimps on Wall Street. The illusion is unsustainable but why is now the moment?

Captain Hate, Can I use your 06:01 for a comment over at Weasel Zippers where they have the following on Schumer right now?

http://weaselzippers.us/upchuck-schumer-calls-for-electoral-reform-to-lessen-the-grip-of-the-tea-party/#disqus_thread

Danube on iPad

No one cares what Obama says now. It's just and endless string of excuses and accusations. And I don't think many people are going to be influenced in November by whatever the Democrats say. This election is going to be about Obamacare.

Extraneus

Still can't figure out why Schumer is concerned about the so-called "Tea Party" (which doesn't exist). Wasn't the shutdown a boon for Democrats?

Captain Hate

Absolutely, pagar. Thanks for asking.

Rick Ballard

Henry,

I suppose that could be it but I expect Boehner to flip over on his back for a nice tummy scratch re the debt ceiling. The GOP strategy for 2014 (pardon the misuse of the word) seems to be 'don't make waves'.

386J-I-B289

Schumer is a special despicable person. Humanity should be ashamed they let a cretin like him loose on the public. You can bet Putin is following every word and having it translated into Russian for future reference when he has to give a speech.

bgates

I'm always slacking lately. We should start a club.

I meant to suggest that in 2007.

Captain Hate

Rick, Levin has pointed out recently that Boehner will be retiring from the House in the near future, to cash in on some sweet lobbying gig, and is interested in the NYT and WaPo saying nice things about his legacy as Speaker. As simplistic of an explanation as that sounds, I can't think of anything that refutes it.

henry

Rick, 300 is a meaningless drop that gets lots of hype. Big Gov will ride to the rescue via debt ceiling agreement extra spending in triumph over evil Tea Party baboons. Narrative is all that protects the cronies from lamp posts given the latest polling.

I hope you're not holding your breath on that, bori.

NK(withnewsoftware)

Henry-- as you know my hope is that the repubs/TP use this february to pass Insurer bailout repeal (maybe even waivers) in the House and force senate debate as a condition of Debt Increase. That smirking extortionist Schumer wants to talk about anything, but ObummerCare. All we want to talk about is ObummerCare. It's a simple message to voters-- If ObummerCare is doing so well why do insurers need a bailout, why do cronies need waivers? I think it gets soft persuadables out to vote against dems in battleground senate states.

Thanks CH,

It's up and I have added my opinion of compromise.

IMO, compromise is the reason we are leaving our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren a national debt of 17 trillion plus instead of a debt free future. IMO, what the politicians have done to our nation thru compromise is a crime.

boricuafudd

Wishful thinking... Which leads me to another thing that I have banging in head. Creating a non-profit, let's call it the Conservative Rescue from Intolerance Organization. Its goal is to provide relocation assistance and job placement to all Conservatives caught behind in States and cities like NYC, NY, LA, etc. Relocating them to more tolerant States.

Cap I am waiting for the day for some enterprising reporter to ask the question of why are Rino's and Dems so scared of the Tea Party?

Exactly. And what ideal do they oppose? Following the Constitution? Lower Taxes? ...I know the answer, but make THEM say it.
And even what group of American citizens do they mean when they spit out Tea Party.
Since there is no national tea party...do they hate the citizens that are trying to clean up the voter rolls? Do they hate the citizens that are educating people about the Constitution?
What are the specific organizations that they hate & why....MAKE THEM SAY.

The left is always making a boogie man out of conservatives. A phantom, evil boogie man that they define.
Make the Dems & Rinos define who & what they are talking about...specifics. We want specifics.

Yes, I could get angry at the lost opportunity he had on Leno, but i'll tend toward the whimsical.

The problem with Boehner is the same for most ex-governors, many legislators, etc.

http://www.prweb.com/releases/2014/01/prweb11502304.htm on how bev perdue from NC is pushing a policy initiative with foundation funding. We know others that do it. It's become the norm, and it means there is no traction in what IS a coordinated effort as matt says.

NK(withnewsoftware)

Ya know-- the Clintons really have a history of odd deaths and other events regarding 'friends'. The Obummer Crew is consistent, the things that their friends do all go back to rent seeking and getting over-- the old Chi Town rules things, sure they bring out the knife or the gun when they feel endangered. But people close to the Clintons die or vanish from the scene. They are old rich white libs, but a case can be made the Clintons are more ruthless than the ObummerCrew.

Marlene

This sentence in Collins' letter is the Republican 2014 campaign in a nutshell..."since I have never claimed to be anything but a centrist,I will continue to seek practical,middle of the road solutions to the complex problems our country faces today."

Extraneus

It's a shame that doofus donned a clean-room "bunny suit" for that pic. I work at one of these places, and the politicians come to take credit once in a while, and never suit up to go into the clean room anymore, thanks to that fool. Rather than be relegated to the viewing corridor, they still want to go in, so they get to enter in their Armanis and Bruno Maglis for the photos and it takes two or three days to get the defect levels back down to where wafers can be processed again.

True story.

narciso

I'm reminded of the movie 'Andromeda Strain' where they used such suits, there were likely new in 1972, to deal with the patients, Arthur Hill's character had to tear the umbilical tube, to get into the staircase, to prevent the nuke from going off,

wheels within wheels

"In the course of writing this essay, I came to another disturbing conclusion I had not anticipated. This is that a central feature of the protection has been to defend the 9/11 Commission’s false picture of al-Qaeda as an example of non-state terrorism, at odds with not just the CIA but also the royal families of Saudi Arabia and Qatar. In reality, as I shall show, royal family protection from Qatar and Saudi Arabia (concealed by the 9/11 Commission) was repeatedly given to key figures like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged “principal architect of the 9/11 attacks.” The establishment claims that the wars fought by America in Asia since 9/11 have been part of a global “war on terror.” But this “war,” or pseudo-war, has been fought in alliance with Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Pakistan – precisely the principal political and financial backers of the jihadi terrorist networks the U.S. has supposedly been fighting. Meanwhile the most authentic opponents in the region of these Sunni jihadi terrorists – the governments of Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Iran – have found themselves overthrown (in the case of Iraq and Libya) subverted with U.S. support (in the case of Syria), or sanctioned and threatened as part of an “axis of evil” (in the case of Iran). We should not forget that, just one day after 9/11, “Rumsfeld was talking about broadening the objectives of our response and ‘getting Iraq.’”5 -

They are old rich white libs, but a case can be made the Clintons are more ruthless than the ObummerCrew.

I think Slick's out of control cooter craving is the only thing that sidetracked him from going more commie than he was able to accomplish. Both Clenis and the JEF are very disorganized and were raised by the town tramps with very problematic relationships with men. Both illustrate the problem males encounter when they don't have a stable father figure growing up; like most social science situations, it's not a guarantee of dysfunctional behavior but the odds are highly in its favor.

"why are Rino's and Dems so scared of the Tea Party?"

I think the Rinos fear that the Tea Party will come to define the GOP in a large part of the electorate, thus costing some Republican votes. I don't think the Dems are scared at all - they think they can make hay out of the TP.

rich@gmu

nothing pseudo about it. men and women have been killed and wounded in the field of battle in actions duly authorized by Congress.

I figure there is a push with income inequality and the min wage for an OWS v.2.0 show to kickoff in the coming weeks. That sort of thing usually pops up on college campuses first and when I'm not burned out (good grief it has only been a few days!) I tend to notice that sort of thing. The place to look though would be Ohio State, which seems to be a key baraometer for the administration.

Jane-Rebel Alliance1

Turley is a fool

Over the course of that hearing his morphing was palpable. At first he seemed to try and take the party line. As the questions got better he opened the door a little, and by the end, he was talking impeachment. It was if he decided if no one else was going to say it, he would. IIRC he had 2 allies, and then there was the guy who works for Obama and wouldn't answer the question that you saw in the beginning of that clip.

It was very fun to watch.

Rush pointed out as a rejoinder to 'Garfield's fait accompli 'I said it wouldn't work, but it's the law of the land' that is rarely true of the Democrats, immigration law, DOMA, anti affirmative action propositions, those are never 'the law of the land'

386J-I-B289

Out of curiosity, is there anyone here who disagrees with the Tea Party principles (generallly) and why?

IIRC it started on Gasparino declaring a "tea party" over the idea of using Federal taxes to cover sunk mortgages. And then expanded to limted government, lower taxes, less regulation, no social mediicine and now capped debt.

Who has a problem with that?

Danube on iPad

I didn't see the hearing, Jane, only the clip. Did he really mention impeachment.

The other guy on the clip was pathetic.

--"since I have never claimed to be anything but a centrist,I will continue to seek practical,middle of the road solutions to the complex problems our country faces today."--

Contemplate the [il]logic of that statement for a moment and try and decide who the rigid ideologue really is; Tea partiers or RINOS.

Perhaps she might first consider whether there are any middle of the road solutions to the problems we face.

She could adopt the following logic and arrive at as reasonable and rational a position as the one she has staked out;
"Since I've never claimed to be anything but a leprechaun, I will continue to chase rainbows to pay off our national debt with the thousands of pots of gold strewn hither and yon."

Danube on iPad

"... is there anyone here who disagrees with the Tea Party principles (generallly) and why?"

I'm sure there are a few trolls who do, but I doubt many regulars do. Hell, Boehner says he agrees with them 90% of the time, and he differs only on tactics. I have often disagreed with their tactics, but if I were to list what I believe to be their principles I would be foursquare behind them.

DoT while that may be the conventional wisdom I think that is not the whole truth. The Rino's know that their power locally comes from bringing home the bacon to its supporters. TP wants to shut that pipeline down or least curtail it.

For the Dems while sharing some of the same fears as the Rino's they have an inherent difference of ideology, namely big government versus small. Anyone that professes the latter is an adversary. The TP specially before the non-stop attack, as being racist, white only, old white people, etc. was making inroads with many moderate Dems and Independents who do not like the growing behemoth that is our government. That is something that the Dems do fear, that the TP will gain ascendancy and stick to its goals. The Rino's will compromise to continue the status quo the TP could upset that consensus IMHO.

rich@gm,

Thanks for the Santelli video rant. Priceless and maybe historic. Its where it all began.

henry

Bori, bullseye on the RINOs. The auto bailout fleecing of RINO funding car dealers (but not commie funders) was a first strike of economic warfare on the political opposition. In WI, Walker responded by nuking the gov union funding spigot. Of course Obama responded with the IRS. The Tea Party is correct in attacking lefty funding sources like NGAs and foundations, however harsh that appears. We are faced with a war we did not start. Destruction of opposition logistics is the path to victory.
