    Brought To You By The NRA

    by JM Ashby

    ================================

    The NRA is planning to score tomorrow’s House vote on contempt for Attorney General Eric Holder. They will be checking their list twice to see if you’ve been naughty or nice, and if you’ve been naughty, they’re going to run attack ads in your distract.
    .
    .
    Because the entire Fast and Furious witch hunt is based on the NRA conspiracy theory that says the Obama Administration started a gun-walking program, resulting in the death of an ATF agent, to justify stricter gun laws (the NRA makes no secret of this), it makes perfect since that the NRA would be threatening House members with retribution if they vote against the contempt resolution.
    .
    .
    It’s an investigation with enormous implications, and Darrell Issa and the Republicans are channeling the fear of NRA backlash, conspiracy theories, and misinformation into congressional support for their vote of contempt.

    For the Department of Justice, this a serious matter, but for the Republicans this tragic story is being used to score political points, appease NRA lobbyists, and feed the notion that the Obama administration is lawless and corrupt.

    It’s disgusting.

        Like all the “modern” presidents before them…

        These idiots think that every time the Obamas do something, it’s as if NO OTHER PRESIDENT has ever done that. Like FLOTUS Bush took her two daughters on a trip to Africa. But when FLOTUS Michele took her daughters, these whistleheads acted like it was a high crime. Whatever, haters…

          FLOTUS and POTUS can walk across the street and these idiots will complain, what did it cost for that trip? How many vacations have they been on? And when the Bushes were in there for eight years I don’t recall them questioning any one about the cost. Did they complain when tax dollars went to millionaires and billionaires in the Bush tax cuts? Did they complain about invading Iraq and what that cost us? To hell with those haters. I say to the Obamas keep doing the great job you are doing, 4 MORE YEARS.

    New York Examines the Chamber’s Inner Closets

    By Ed Kilgore

    ————————–

    We learn today from Washington Monthly alumnus Nicholas Confessore that the Attorney General of New York, Eric Schneiderman, has transcended the paralysis afflicting the Federal Election Commission to launch a probe into the seriously aromatic financing of lobbying and electioneering activities by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

    You can read the whole thing, but it’s basically about apparent shifts of very large sums of money among two foundations and the Chamber, designed to disguise the donors for and protect the tax status of an array of high-profile Chamber political activities.

          Lisa, we are real family as you well know. You amongst all of us are so passionate about POB and because you know how these men and women are trying to bring down our president, when we see some of them, names begin to run together in indentification. So knowing all of them in every committee, their names and positions begin to run together. When I read your comment, I knew that was true. I know that you know who Chairman Patrick Leahy is and most of all Sen. Leahy is a very, very strong supporter of the president and he also is a very, very strong supporter of AG Holder. You are so right, he has AG Holder’s back and PBO’s for sure.

          I have watched all of the hearings of the Judiciary Committee when AG Holder has been called in to the Judiciary Committee, and Sen. Leahy does not play with those ugly repukes when it comes to AG Holder. So as you retracted, those two hands together really do mean something. He cares about AG Holder and he ( I have been watching Sen. Leahy as long as I have been following VP Biden,) is a great and decent man. He is with PBO for sure.

          It is like we are such a caring and loving family who keeps up on everything about POTUS, and the names begin to run together. I love the way you made your own correction. This is how a family respects each other. I have always loved that about you. HZ

    Rep. Gutierrez warns Canadian Justin Bieber to bring papers to Arizona (please watch the video)

    http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/06/27/rep-gutierrez-warns-canadian-justin-bieber-to-bring-papers-to-arizona/

    ——————————
    Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) made a point about the potential for racial profiling in Arizona’s anti-immigration law on Wednesday by challenging members of the House to look at a series of photographs and determine which of the people were immigrants and which were citizens.

    In a 5-4 ruling earlier this week, the the Supreme Court found that three out of four provisions of the Arizona law were unconstitutional because they were preempted federal laws. The court upheld that police could be required to inquire about immigration status when they stop suspects, but it left open the possibility of future challenges once that portion of the law was finally implemented.

    “In Arizona today, all that stands between you and a legal nightmare is whether a police officer feels that there is a reasonable suspicion to inquire about your country of origin,” Gutierrez explained. “Yet, Arizona politicians will tell you — with a straight face, no less — that they can apply this law without racial profiling, without assuming that someone named Gutierrez isn’t less likely to be in this country legally than someone named Smith. That’s an amazing skill!”

    “Maybe with practice we can all become like Arizona politicians and police officers who are able to telepathically determine who to accuse of not belong in America. But let’s take a quiz together this morning and learn how to pick out the suspect.”

    The first set of photos compared journalists Geraldo Rivera and Ted Koppel.

    “Geraldo’s Rivera’s mustache wouldn’t confuse an Arizona law enforcement professional,” Gutierrez snarked. “They would know that Geraldo was born in Brooklyn, New York and that Ted Koppel was born in Europe, in England, where his parents moved to flee from Hitler and Nazi Germany.”

    Round two pitted singer Selena Gomez against her boyfriend Justin Bieber.

    “I’m sure Justin helped Gomez learn all about American customs and feel more at home in her adopted country,” the congressman said. “Oh, wait a minute. I’m sorry. Because I’m not a trained Arizona official, I somehow got that backwards. Actually, Ms. Gomez of Texas has helped Mr. Bieber of Canada learn about his adopted country.”

    “Justin, when you perform in Phoenix, remember to bring your papers,” Gutierrez warned…[more in the article]

    TWEETY JUST MADE ME CRY (AGAIN).

    Tweety’s “Let Me Finish” segment on Nora Ephron was so touching at the end it brought me to tears twice. It was really touching to see Tweety get so emotional talking about her. The first time I watched, I could sense it was going to be hard for him to close out the segment. He also did a very sweet tribute with Rob Reiner and Joan Walsh.

    AMK. . .here is one for you. . .

    A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below.
    She shouted to him, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”

    The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, “You’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

    “She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be an Obama Democrat.”

    “I am,” replied the man. “How did you know?”

    “Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help to me.”

    The man smiled and responded, “You must be a Republican.”

    “I am,” replied the balloonist. “How did you know?”

    “Well,” said the man, “you don’t know where you are or where you are going. You’ve risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You’re in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it’s my fault.”

      As long as we are flying,

      A pilot is flying a small, single-engine, charter plane with a couple of really important executives on board into Seattle airport. There is fog so thick that visibility is 40 feet, and his instruments are out. He circles looking for a landmark and after an hour, he is low on fuel and his passengers are very nervous. At last, through a small opening in the fog he sees a tall building with one guy working alone on the fifth floor. Circling, the pilot banks and shouts through his open window: “Hey, where am I?”. The solitary office worker replies: “You’re in an airplane.”. The pilot immediately executes a swift 275 degree turn and executes a perfect blind landing on the airport’s runway five miles away. Just as the plane stops, the engines cough and die from lack of fuel. The stunned passengers ask the pilot how he did it. “Elementary,” replies the pilot, “I asked the guy in that building a simple question. The answer he gave me was 100% correct but absolutely useless; therefore, I knew that must be Microsoft’s support office and from there the airport is three minutes away on a course of 87 degrees.”

    A blonde is on a four-engine plane crossing the Atlantic.

    All of a sudden there’s a loud bang. The pilot announces over the intercom “I’m sorry, one of our engines has just shut off. We’ll be delayed 45 minutes.”

    Suddenly there’s another bang. Once again, the intercom clicks on and the pilot expresses his regret that they’ll be delayed two hours.

    Shortly thereafter, there is third bang and the pilot announces that they’ll be delayed 3 hours.

    The blonde turns to the guy sitting beside her and says, “Man, if the fourth engine shuts off we’ll be up here all day.”

      Job at the CIA

      The CIA had an opening for an assassin.
      After all the background checks, interviews and testing were done, there were 3 finalists; “Two men and a woman”.

      For the final test, the CIA agents took one of the men to a large metal door and handed him a gun. ‘We must know that you will follow your instructions no matter what the circumstances. Inside the room you will find your wife sitting in a chair … Kill her!!’
      The man said, ‘You can’t be serious. I could never shoot my wife.’ The agent said, ‘Then you’re not the right man for this job. Take your wife and go home.’
      The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went into the room. All was quiet for about 5 minutes. The man came out with tears in his eyes, ‘I tried, but I can’t kill my wife ..’ The agent said, ‘You don’t have what it takes Take your wife and go home..’
      Finally, it was the woman’s turn. She was given the same instructions, to kill her husband. She took the gun and went into the room. Shots were heard, one after another. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the walls. After a few minutes, all was quiet. The door opened slowly and there stood the woman, wiping the sweat from her brow.
      ‘This gun is loaded with blanks’ she said. ‘I had to beat him to death with the chair.’
      MORAL: Women: Don’t mess with them.

    The Senate is likely to take up legislation aimed at curbing job outsourcing after the July 4 recess, a vote that would come amid the Obama campaign’s relentless hammering against Mitt Romney and Bain Capital’s overseas investments.

    It’s another example of election-year coordination between the White House and Senate Democrats, who have already held votes on the Buffett Rule, pay-equity legislation and student loan interest rates that aligned with the administration’s message.

        Lisa and globalcitizenlinda, we could make a great trio. Now that is my kind of work. I would love to walk in there and pull out some heavy duty subpoenas and shove them down those lying suckers mouths. But I would have dressed those subpeonas up in some very delicious dressings for their BBQ. Crap-heads!!!

        I better get off, my pain meds need to get to work, plus I do not want to be sued for my words. Although I have a great a few great lawyers in the family and another high-level law person, I need to shut it up for tonight. But I would be glad to team up with my Lisa and GCL.

        Have a nice evening AG Holder, and stay cool and stay strong. We have your back also. HZ

        I used to think the same sort of thing about Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner. If I was him, I would have audited Arianna Huffington years ago.

    Shame on me, but I really do adore the President’s tush.

    Joy Ann Reid just called out Michael Medsomethingorother on Ed’s show. He said Senator Obama voted against Bush’s immigration bill. Joy said:” Mike just spoke a bit of untruth there because we know PBO voted for that biil…..” and Mike had no come back. Wish more Dems called out liars so well and so easily and Richard Wolfe was there and didn’t even call that toolbag on it—- maybe I’m being too harsh, maybe he didn’t have time to call the repug tool out. Who knows? But Joy was on top of it.

    (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama will learn how the Supreme Court rules on his flagship healthcare law from watching the news, and won’t get any advance word on the opinion, the White House said on Wednesday.

    Asked where Obama will be when the highly anticipated decision is announced on Thursday morning, White House spokesman Jay Carney said: “In my office.”

    Supreme Court rulings are released in a carefully controlled way. Justices read excerpts from the bench in Washington at the same time as the full judgments are posted online and handed to reporters in paper form.

    An assistant clerk also calls the lawyers for both sides about the announcement. But interested parties in the West Wing and elsewhere have to hear from the media what has been decided.

    “We turn on televisions and radios and computers and watch SCOTUSblog,” Carney told reporters at the White House.

    “I think anybody who covers the Supreme Court knows that it’s pretty air-tight, and it is perhaps anachronistic, or not, but that’s a fact. And so we all will await the decision and learn of it at the same time that you do,” he said.

    Wow, beautiful pics, Chips! Scrolled thru, and all the way down, then I’ll go back up and read everything. Just have to ask, on Ed Show is Elijah Cummings & he’s saying that that the CBC (responding to that Politico story that they all walk out tomorrow) is working out the details of what they’ll do tomorrow. Totally paraphrasing here. Do they really have to think about it? Did I miss something. Maybe Elijah didn’t want to give too much away? Maybe Issa found a spelling bee who announced his name backwards? :) She won the Bee!

    Anyhoo, I strongly believe the NRA totally overreached, as is their nature, and forgot to pull up their knickers. All their nasties are out in the sunshine. Could they go the way of Komen? Just saying …. :)

    I so wish Democrats had guts, here they are being push around by the NRA. You can stand for guns rights and stand for the right thing being done. And what that sicko Issa and the Republicans are doing is not right. Any Democrat who vote in favor of this contempt B.S. is a bunch of weak ass punks who are being push around by the NRA.

    This is going to be posted twice because the other one was awaiting moderation..

    CHIPS! Thx for the vid of PObama speaking at the Conogressional Picnic..I bet they were Dems who were clapping when he mentioned everyone working together for a better America to leave our kids. They are both so Exemplary! Loved Michelle’s Sundress~

    But, it bears repeating!
