VICTORY! SENATE REJECTS the CRPD – 61-38 vote!

Victory is sweet.  It feels good.  Maybe no more treaties during a lame duck session.  I do not care, Senator Kerry, if it were done 19 prior times!  There is no compelling emergency that justifies it. What did we learn from this? The Democratic Party, at least at the national level, is the Globalist Party.  […]

DECEMBER 4 is the DAY! THE VOTE on the UN DISABILITIES TREATY! TALK TO YOUR SENATOR!

parentalrights.org reports that Tuesday, December 4 is the date for the vote in the Senate on the UN Disabilities Treaty.  Let’s just say NO!  Here’s why! 1.  It hurts parental rights.  All disabled children (and every child who ever have had an IEP or 504 plan could be considered disabled) will be subject to bureaucrats […]

WHEN I WENT TO SENATOR WEBB’S RICHMOND OFFICE…THEY are HEARING from YOU! I APPEAL to SENATOR WEBB – DO WHAT’S RIGHT – VOTE NO ON the DISABILITIES TREATY!

I was not sure what to do because I am at work and I do not blog from work nor use work stuff for advocacy (although I have broken down for the Appellate Defender issue!) so when I was doing my prayer walk around the state Capitol today, I was seized with an idea:  GO […]

UN TREATY ALERT! CALL SENATORS WEBB and WARNER! NO on CRPD!

The so-called Convention for the Rights of the Persons with Disabilities is back again! www.parentalrights.org is reporting that Senator Reid wants to vote on CRPD this week!  We need to call our senators today or tomorrow. I would say:  First, a lame duck session is not appropriate for a serious matter like this treaty.  Only […]

Worried About Fiscal Cliff, Manufacturers “Put Brakes On Hiring,” But Democrats Insistant on Tax Hikes

The Wall Street Journal reports today, “Some manufacturers have delayed hiring while they wait to see whether they will face sharply higher U.S. taxes and deep cuts in government spending in 2013, a new survey shows. Uncertainty over U.S. tax and spending plans has prompted about a third of 60 large and small manufacturing companies—two-thirds of them […]

MY HERO: Senator MIKE LEE of UTAH – he STOPPED a SNEAKY ATTEMPT to pass the DISABILITIES TREATY and CAME UP with 35 other senators who WILL NOT VOTE YES THIS SESSION!

www.parentalrights.org reported and The Hill confirms that there was first a sneaky attempt to pass the sovereignty-killing, unnecessary, dangerous (especially to parental rights and homeschoolers) Convention to Protect the Rights of the Disabled (CPRD) stopped by Utah Senator Mike Lee and then the wonderful “round robin” letter Lee then produced, signed by enough Senators to […]

Republican Victory in November Leads to Lower Unemployment – Now at 9%

With the uncertainty at every turn caused by the confused Obama Administration’s policies and attitude towards businesses evaporated by the Republican gains in November, employment numbers showed a sharp improvement in numbers released today.

With Maximum Possible Destruction of America Achieved – Lame Duck Congress Adjourns

America has one thing to be thankful for this holiday season – that Congress has adjourned. After the voters spoke in November, this Congress tells voters in a clear voice: We hear you and say ‘go screw yourself’ Republicans now have some fixing to do. And even more explaining. Both parties got the message. There […]

Dems Unveil Massive, Last-Minute Spending Bill As Gallup Finds Worst Job Approval For Congress Ever

Reuters reports, “Senate Democrats on Tuesday unveiled an earmark-laden spending bill that would fund the entire U.S. government, and Republicans who have renounced the pet spending projects quickly vowed to oppose it. The 2,000-page spending bill, months overdue, would enable President Barack Obama to tighten financial oversight, subsidize college tuition bills and move forward with […]

Pass a 90 Day Extension of the Tax Cuts and Let the New Congress Finalize the Deal

This tax “compromise” bill has turned into another pork filled vehicle that exemplifies all that is wrong with our government. The voters spoke in November. NO MORE! Yet, here comes a large dose of more of the same. This time the excuse is “we must pass the Bush Tax Cut extension” or the world as […]

Republicans Block Dems’ Liberal Wish List Show Votes; McConnell: ‘Are We Here To Perform Or To Legislate?’

In a floor speech yesterday, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said, “It’s perfectly clear by now that our friends on the other side are more interested in pleasing special interest groups than in addressing our nation’s jobs crisis. Once again they’re insisting that the Senate spend its last remaining days before the end of the […]

Democrats Vote to Crash Stock Market

In their usual game of class warfare, Nancy Pelosi and the “Progressive” Democrats have convened a lame duck session and are up to their old mischief at warp speed before the gavel is surgically removed from her power mad hand.

Should Republicans Begin Pushing a Social Conservative Agenda in DC?

Well, the short answer is no. The long answer is Hell No! There are some rumblings in the Republican Party that, heck, we won! Let’s turn back the damage that four years of liberalism has done on social issues. Republicans won on fiscal conservatism. Social issues were never on the radar. Democrats tried, and continue […]

CEDAW IS BAD, BAD NEWS and IT MUST BE STOPPED!

CEDAW (the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women) is more bad UN (all together now:  Redundant!) law.  It’s a treaty that allegedly ends discrimination against women.  It has been around for many years since President Carter first proposed it (one more reason to oppose it) for US ratification.  There is […]

Holding Democrats Responsible for Failing to Deal With Tax Cuts
