“Wrong is wrong no matter how popular the wrong: Impeachment should not rest on popularity”

 

“When they came for my bullets, there was no one left to speak . . .”

 

“Asked how much of the blame for the shift in power from Congress to the executive branch should be laid at the feet of Congresses of the past, Lee said:

‘I’m going to make a lot of people unhappy with what I’m about to say in response to that question, but almost all of it is Congress’s fault. We’re kidding ourselves if we think we can come up with a system of laws that delegates all of this lawmaking power to the executive branch. We’re kidding ourselves if we don’t think presidents, Democrats and Republicans alike, are going to abuse that. We’re kidding ourselves if we don’t think that’s going to result in an erosion of not only our constitutional order, but also liberty itself. So, yeah, this is Congress’s fault, it is overwhelmingly Congress’s fault and we’ve got to turn it back.”

Joanne: HR 5

Yesterday, many of us were VERY EXCITED when HR 5 was “pulled from consideration”  and thought that the reason for this was that it didn’t have enough votes to pass.  That is POSSIBLE, but we have heard from a very good source in Washington that the reason it wasn’t voted on yesterday (February 27) was that there were more pressing issues at hand.  We were told that HR 5 was “primarily delayed because the debate on Homeland Security took precedence and has absorbed their schedule. (Their funding runs out at midnight.) They just didn’t have time on the calendar to add the big HR5 debate.”

See also what Diane Ravitch has to say: 

https://deutsch29.wordpress.com/2015/02/27/the-latest-play-by-play-on-hr-5-student-success-act/

Whatever the reason, we CANNOT LET OUR GUARD DOWN AND MUST KEEP CALLING OUR REPRESENTATIVES to express our concerns about HR 5.

It would be worthwhile reading Sandra Stotsky’s analysis below for some good talking points.

LEADS . . .

Victor Davis Hanson, PJM: “The Liberal Circus

“Lately liberalism has gone from psychodrama to farce.

“Take Barack Obama. He has gone from mild displeasure with Israel to downright antipathy. Suddenly we are in a surreal world where off-the-record slurs from the administration against Benjamin Netanyahu as a coward and chickensh-t have gone to full-fledged attacks from John Kerry and Susan Rice, to efforts of former Obama political operatives to defeat the Israeli prime minister at the polls, to concessions to Iran and to indifference about the attacks on Jews in Paris. Who would have believed that Iranian leaders who just ordered bombing runs on a mock U.S. carrier could be treated with more deference than the prime minister of Israel? What started out six years as pressure on Israel to dismantle so-called settlements has ended up with a full-fledged vendetta against a foreign head of state.

Hillary Clinton likewise has gone from a rather run-of-the-mill liberal grandee to a political grafter. She apparently solicited donations from foreign government officials and wealthy foreign nationals to contribute to the Clinton Foundation — and this was while she was secretary of State conducting the foreign policy of the United States. If those charges are proven accurate, how could she ever be trusted to become commander in chief? Unfortunately, in the last year almost every cause that Hillary Clinton has taken up has been belied by her own actions.

“Inequality and fairness? At time when students struggle under a collective $1 trillion-plus student debt, much of it because of universities hiking fees and tuitions above the inflation rate, Hillary has serially charged universities well over $200,000 for 30-minute boilerplate speeches.

Women’s issues? We learn that women on Senator Clinton’s staff once made considerably less than their male counterparts. Had Bill Clinton worked at a university, corporation or government bureau, his sexual peccadillos long ago would have had him thrown off the premises. The latest disclosures about his junkets with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein are so bizarre that no one quite knows what to make of them — the would-be first female and feminist president married to a man who serially cavorted with a convicted sexual pervert?

“Transparency? Consider the recent disclosures that Hillary knew almost immediately that the Benghazi killings were the preplanned work of terrorists and not due to spontaneous rioters angry over a video — and yet continued to deceive the public that just the opposite was true. The problem with Hillary’s scandals are not just that they reveal a lack of character, but that they are illiberal to the core on hallmark progressive issues of concern for equality, transparency and feminism. . .”

Robert Barnes, WaPo: “Obamacare threatens to end John Roberts’s dream of a nonpartisan Supreme Court”

“The first time the Affordable Care Act came before the Supreme Court, its constitutional foundation under attack, John G. Roberts Jr. was its unlikely savior. In a spectacular display of spot-welding, the chief justice joined fellow conservatives on some points and brought liberals on board for others. Roberts was the only member of the court to endorse the entire jerry-rigged thing, and even he made sure to distance himself from the substance of the law. (‘It is,’ he wrote, ‘not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.’) Still, his efforts rescued President Obama’s signature achievement on grounds that many had dismissed as an afterthought.

“As long as Justice Anthony M. Kennedy is on the court, he will most often be the decider when the justices split along their familiar ideological fault lines. But, slowly and quietly, Roberts is the one trying to build its legacy. He sees it as somehow exempt from the partisan fugue that long ago enveloped Washington. . .”

Byron York, Washington Examiner: “Scott Walker is headed for trouble with the GOP establishment”

“. . . That’s a huge part of Walker’s appeal right now: He seems to be the Republican candidate who has the best chance of connecting with the millions of middle-class voters who have drifted away from the GOP in recent elections. And for that reason, Walker looks like the man who can attract almost everyone in the Republican camp — social, economic, and national security conservatives — in addition to those disaffected voters. That’s a huge plus for Walker and, along with his impressive record in Wisconsin, is the reason he has shot to the first tier of the Republican race in recent weeks.

“At the same time, Walker could be headed for trouble with the establishment, Washington-based wing of his party. Look for GOP insiders to begin whispering, and then saying out loud, that Walker needs to raise his game if he is going to play on the national stage. On the one hand, they’ll have a point — Walker needs to come up with clear, crisply-expressed positions on a variety of national and international issues. On the other hand, Walker’s way-outside-the-Beltway method of expressing himself might resonate with voters in primary caucus states more than Washington thinks. . .”

Byron York, Washington Examiner: “Ted Cruz: Obamacare defunding fight wasn’t winnable”

“. . . ‘Is it likely we would have altogether defunded Obamacare then?” the Texas Republican said. “Probably not. That would have taken an almost perfect storm. I was never Pollyannaish about the political factors it would take for that to happen.’

As the 2013 battle began, Cruz said victory was within reach if Republicans simply stuck together. But Friday night, he explained that what was actually possible was “a middle ground compromise” in which President Obama would have been forced to give way on some aspects of Obamacare. Such a compromise ‘would have provided some significant relief to the millions of people losing their jobs, losing their health insurance, losing their doctors because of Obamacare,’ Cruz said.

“Cruz, who is considering a 2016 run for president, conceded that ‘I made some mistakes’ in the shutdown battle. ‘The single biggest mistake … is I think that I and our allies did not spend enough time explaining the specific strategy to elite opinion makers,’ Cruz said. ‘And I think there was confusion that made it less effective.’

“Whatever mistakes he believes he made, Cruz reserved the biggest blame for the Republican Senate leadership under Sen. Mitch McConnell, whom Cruz never mentioned by name . . .”

David Espo and Erica Werner, MyWay: “Congress OKs 1-week bill to keep Homeland Security open”

“WASHINGTON (AP) — Bordering on dysfunction, Congress passed a one-week bill late Friday night to avert a partial shutdown of the Homeland Security Department, as leaders in both political parties quelled a revolt by House conservatives furious that the measure left President Barack Obama’s immigration policy intact.

“The final vote of a long day and night was a bipartisan 357-60 in the House, a little more than an hour after the Senate cleared the measure without so much as a roll call.

“That sent the legislation to the White House for Obama’s signature, which the president provided just a few minutes before midnight, capping a day of bruising political battles and rhetoric to match. . .”

Mark Levin, TheHill: “Mark Levin says GOP has ‘no guts’”

“Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Saturday, Levin dubbed Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) “one of the most despicable, dumbest men to ever be leader in the Senate,” but added that Reid is “running circles around the Republicans.”

“That’s what happens when you have no principles, no strategy and no guts,’ Levin said of Congressional Republicans. ‘It’s time for a new Republican Party.’

“‘No more excuses. No more whining. No more lying to get you elected. No more crony deals with the U.S. Chamber of crony capitalism,’ Levin said, taking a political shot at the business community powerhouse U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

“Levin made clear his opposition to likely 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush. . .”

Michael Rubin, Commentary: “Call Clinton Foundation Action What It Was: Corruption

“. . . Because the Clinton Foundation often received donations from foreign states and Hillary Clinton didn’t want her tenure in Foggy Bottom to drain the Foundation of the funds upon which it came to rely, Obama administration lawyers hashed out an agreement in which foreign states could donate, but only if they had donated before and only if they did not provide additional money beyond what had been their previous practice.

In 2010, however, the Algerian government, through its embassy in Washington D.C., allegedly gave the Clinton Foundation $500,000 in theory to support earthquake relief in Haiti. Now, the Haitian earthquake was devastating, and Algeria doesn’t have an embassy in Port-au-Prince and so on the surface, a donation is plausible.

“But to believe that Algeria chose the Clinton Foundation randomly or because it was best positioned to work in Haiti beggars belief. . .”

IRS . . .

Stephen Dinan, Washington Times: “IRS watchdog reveals Lois Lerner missing emails now subject of criminal probe”

“The IRS’s inspector general confirmed Thursday it is conducting a criminal investigation into how Lois G. Lerner’s emails disappeared, saying it took only two weeks for investigators to find hundreds of tapes the agency’s chief had told Congress were irretrievably destroyed.

Investigators have already scoured 744 backup tapes and gleaned 32,774 unique emails, but just two weeks ago they found an additional 424 tapes that could contain even more Lerner emails, Deputy Inspector General Timothy P. Camus told the House Oversight Committee in a rare late-night hearing meant to look into the status of the investigation.

“There is potential criminal activity,” Mr. Camus said.

INTERNET . . .

Mario Trujillo, TheHill: “FCC chief scheduled for marathon week of testimony on Internet rules”

“. . . Congressional Republicans have pounced on Wheeler after the FCC recently approved regulations that would reclassify broadband Internet under regulations governing traditional telephones, in order to enforce strong net neutrality rules.

“The increased authority, approved by a 3-2 vote on Thursday, is meant to enforce rules to ensure Internet Service Providers do not prioritize any packet of Internet traffic above another.

“Committees in the House and Senate have launched investigations probing whether the White House had an undue influence on the rule-making. Republicans have accused Wheeler of bending to White House pressure, because the regulations track closely with recommendations President Obama made to the commission in November.

“Republicans are also considering a series of congressional actions to undo the regulations.

Leaders on the House and Senate Commerce committees are pushing a bill to enact many of the net neutrality principles advocates have supported, while also restricting some FCC authority. Another group of Republicans are advocating a more partisan effort to block the regulations through a ‘fast track’ process under the Congressional Review Act. . .”

http://thehill.com/policy/technology/234168-wheeler-scheduled-for-marathon-week-of-testimony-on-internet-rules

Brian Fung, WaPo: “There’s already a conspiracy theory brewing over net neutrality”

Why won’t they release the rules?!?!

“It’s been less than 24 hours since the Federal Communications Commission voted to approve strict new regulations on Internet providers, but that’s the leading question coming from its critics.

“Conservatives are demanding that the FCC release a full copy of the regulations that it’s planning to impose on companies such as Comcast and Verizon — and taking the agency’s silence as evidence of a cover-up. Readers of an FCC blog post  have suspiciously mused that ‘these new regulations should have been published by now.’ It’s much the same over on Twitter.u

“Let’s stop this nonsense right here. It’s a stretch to think the FCC is withholding anything. “While it was certainly within FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s power to release his draft proposal before it came to a vote, the regulations now must go through a formal process before they become official. And say what you will about bureaucratic inefficiency,  but that’s the chief reason the FCC won’t be releasing the rules for some time.

“Not even Internet providers, who are generally frustrated by the content of the rules, are all that outraged about the delay. They’re going to see the document, sooner or later. And they’ll still likely sue to have them overturned. . .”

ISR . . .

Quin Hillyer, NRO: “Netanyahu, Not Obama, Speaks for Us”

Thus, Bibi must be defeated as the Bamster and Val campaign for their next jobs . . .

“. . .Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu leads a nation surrounded by enemies, a nation so small that it narrows at one point to just 9.3 miles. Yet, in a world where the Oval Office is manned by someone openly apologetic for most American exercises of power; and where Western Europe’s economy is enervated, its people largely faithless, and its leadership feckless; and where Freedom House has found “an overall drop in [global] freedom for the ninth consecutive year,” the safeguarding of our civilization might rely more on leaders who possess uncommon moral courage than on those who possess the most nukes or biggest armies. Right now, nobody on the world stage speaks for civilization the way Netanyahu does. . .” http://www.nationalreview.com/article/414636/netanyahu-not-obama-speaks-us-quin-hillyer

Jeffrey Shapiro, Washington Times: “Administration denies Obama threatened to shoot down Israeli warplanes”

“President Obama threatened last year to use the U.S. military to shoot down Israeli fighter jets if they attempted to destroy Iranian nuclear facilities, according to Middle Eastern news outlets Sunday — reports the administration denounced later that day as flatly untrue.

“Mr. Obama’s threat reportedly deterred Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from dispatching warplanes into Iran after Israel discovered that the U.S. had entered into secret talks with Tehran and that the two countries had signed an agreement, according to Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida.

“In a statement to The Washington Times early Sunday evening, a senior administration said ‘that report is totally false.’ . . .”

IRAN . . .

Roger Simon, PJM: Will Obama’s Iran Deal Be the Worst Deal Ever Made?

“It seems hyperbolic to say that Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran — if Ayatollah Khamenei, in his “wisdom,” allows it to happen — will be the worst deal ever made. But if what we have been learning about it is true, it almost certainly will be.

“To begin with, the agreement is said to have a sunset clause of 10-15 years.  Whatever the number turns out to be, that tells us that Iran is free to do anything it wants in the nuclear weapons field after a set amount of time, assuming that it hadn’t disobeyed the strictures of the agreement before then — a monumental assumption given past history. (Ironically, in this one way Iran is not unlike other states, all of which, to my knowledge, do their best to hide their nuclear programs, including the U.S.)

“The idea — if it can be called that — behind this sunset clause is a kind of bet that Iran will turn into a normal country during the time frame, abjuring the fanatical religious doctrines (global war bringing about the twelfth Imam/Mahdi, etc.) inherent in Khomeinist Shiism that would make allowing Iran the bomb equivalent to giving a loaded gun to a two year old, only with global implications.  Of course the more modern view of the world is true for many Iranians now, but will it be true in the future for all or even most?  Who will be in power?  The ayatollahs — almost all, from what we know, true believers in this apocalyptic ideology or willing to pretend they are — seem to have a stranglehold for now.   And what about the Revolutionary Guard, evidently a universe unto itself in Iran, with expansionist goals that already have been largely successful across the Middle East through Iraq, Lebanon and Syria and now into Yemen?

“Is all the endless chanting of ‘Death to America!  Death to Israel!’ merely ‘patriotic rhetoric’ to appease the Iranian version of low-information voters?  Or is it, like many things repeated literally since birth, buried deep in the unconscious of the populace?. . “http://pjmedia.com/rogerlsimon/2015/03/01/obamas-iran-deal/

Julie Pace and Matthew Lee, ABC: “Obama, Netanyahu on Collision Course 6 Years in the Making”

“. . . Netanyahu is bound for Washington for an address to Congress on Tuesday aimed squarely at derailing Obama’s cherished bid for a diplomatic deal with Tehran. At the same time, Secretary of State John Kerry and other international negotiators will be in Switzerland for talks with the Iranians, trying for a framework agreement before a late March deadline.

“In between are Israel’s elections March 17, which have heightened the political overtones of Netanyahu’s visit to Washington.

“The prime minister is speaking to Congress at the request of Republicans. His visit was two leaders who have never shown much affection for each other. . .”

PA . . .

Andrew Staub, PA Independent: “Week in Review: All eyes looking toward Wolf’s budget address”

“Most of this week was spent looking toward next week, when Gov. Tom Wolf will offer his first budget proposal.

“Wolf has to tackle a shortfall that could top $2 billion. He’s already proposed cutting the corporate net income tax in half and implementing a severance tax on the natural gas industry, but his administration has said full details won’t be available until Tuesday.

“The governor’s proposal will start off a months-long budget process that will include plenty of counter-proposals and debate from lawmakers. State House Republicans have already set a budget negotiating point by voting for liquor privatization, and some lawmakers are looking at more handouts for the film industry despite the budget challenges.

“Outside the pre-budget scramble in Harrisburg, there was plenty of education news in Philadelphia, where a conservative public-interest law firm is going after ‘ghost teachers’ and the School Reform Commission and the teachers union are heading to the state’s highest court over a contract dispute.

“Here’s a look back at the week that was . . .”

http://paindependent.com/2015/02/week-in-review-all-eyes-looking-toward-wolfs-budget-address/

Sy Snyder, PoliticsPA: “2/27 Ups & Downs”

“Budget preparation, big-money fundraisers and withdrawn nominations. See who made this week’s list!

Tom Wolf. The Governor is approaching his first big test in office, his initial budget address to the legislature. Therefore, it was important for Wolf’s team to control the narrative going into this big moment. Yet circumstances have caused things to swerve off-track. Gov. Wolf’s comments that the state’s economic problems are due to our low collective “self-esteem” and his appointment of John Dougherty to the PRPA board distracted from planned events like his Twitter townhall. Additionally, the leaks and preview of his budget proposals have already drawn Republican fire. Altogether, his “go big or go home” strategy is quite commendable yet extremely risky. The only silver lining is that next week will be even more important than this week.

Josh Shapiro. The Montgomery County Commissioner has been rumored to be circling a 2016 race for either Senate or Attorney General for quite some time now. The revelation that Shapiro raised half a million dollars from a single fundraiser is certain to add fuel to that fire. Considering as well that he held over a $1 million in the bank at the end of last year, Shapiro is in prime position to wait and see how the chips fall in 2015 and make his 2016 plans accordingly.

Thomas Kistler and Ken Gormley. Earlier this month, Thomas Kistler and Ken Gormley were preparing to join the State Supreme Court. Now, it looks as though the court will have two vacancies until the results of the November elections are in. First, it was revealed that Kistler had sent a racially inappropriate email. Then, it emerged that Gormley had faced an accusation of sexual harassment in the past. Kistler decided to withdraw from consideration and without a Republican to pair with the Democrat Gormley, Wolf abandoned any effort to fill the Court for the rest of 2015.

Kevin Dougherty and David Wecht. Last Sunday, the Democratic State Committee met in Hershey to decide which judicial candidates to endorse for the May primary elections. Due to the two-thirds threshold, however, the party was only able to garner enough support for two candidates for the three openings. Kevin Dougherty and David Wecht won those endorsements, giving them a leg up in the wide-open contest.

Martina White. The HD-170 special election has already provided plenty of intra-party intrigue. The biggest surprise of the race, however, occurred yesterday when Republican nominee Martina White announced the support of fifteen labor unions. Now that White has pulled off that coup, the pressure now transitions to first-time candidate Sarah Del Ricci to prove she can hold onto the seat for the Democrats.

Jonah Goldberg, NRO: “Paging Dr. Carson”

“Senator Barbara Mikulski is retiring. That opens up a senate seat in deep blue Maryland. I understand Ben Carson wants the brass ring of the Oval Office. I have deep and abiding respect for Dr. Carson, but I think that’s a long shot. But what about Mikulski’s seat? Yes, Maryland is a deep-blue state. But it also elected a Republican for governor last year, shocking pretty much everyone. Meanwhile, Carson is a huge figure in Maryland, with deep ties to the community. Carson’s profile in the African American community, particularly in Baltimore, is huge. He’s been the inspiring guest speaker at local Baltimore high schools for decades.

“If he ran, I doubt he would get a majority of the black vote in Maryland. But I also suspect he’d do quite well in that regard. Certainly many black voters might just opt to stay home rather than vote against him. And I’d expect Carson to do fantastically well in Western Maryland and other more conservative parts of the state. He could raise money nationally (maybe even rollover his presidential campaign money?), not just on his star status but also on the promise of flipping a safe Democratic seat in what will be a tough election year for Republicans. Virtually every Republican star in the country would happily campaign for him. . .” http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/414670/paging-dr-carson-jonah-goldberg

Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars: “Run on AR-15 Ammo: “Buying Frenzy” as Some Fear Total Gun Ban”

“Last week, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced its intention to ban sales of the ammunition, typically used by sports shooters, in the name of protecting law enforcement officers from “the threat posed by ammunition capable of penetrating a protective vest.”

“Fearful that this is just the first step towards the eventual goal of banning semi-automatic rifles altogether, gun owners have responded by stockpiling the bullets, which are the cheapest available for AR-15′s, prompting nationwide shortages.

N.R. Kleinfield, NYT: “With White-Knuckle Grip, February’s Cold Clings to New York”

“It will end. Allegedly.

“It will get warmer. One day. Someday.

“Won’t it?

“We have reached the 69th day of winter. It seems like the 6,669th. Pretty much the same nonsense is reprised day after day. Miserable, punishing, obnoxious, teeth-rattling, bone-numbing weather. Unmitigated, merciless, are-you-kidding-me cold.

“New Yorkers cannot recall the last time they walked with their eyes trained forward, rather than watching for ice patches waiting to send them flying, which leaves them vulnerable to ice sliding off buildings from above. And in the evenings the snowplows screech past, drowning out the television in the middle of a Letterman cold joke.

“Throughout the parks, on the edges of sidewalks, ice just sits with defiant, assertive permanency. It will not melt, just keeps getting icier and more discolored. The whole city feels like a giant ice cube. People lean into the wind, pull hard to get doors open, to get out of this weather already, as the whistling wind pushes back.

“As it limps away, February will not be missed. . .”
