Remember Who The Traitors Are.


This is an old article (June 2009), but one to take note.  Hard to keep track these days of those dirty,, rotten swine, but suffice to say that I’m taking notes and will post under the section “2012 Elections”.   DON’T FORGET WHO THE TRAITORS TO THIS COUNTRY ARE.  REMEMBER THEM NOW, IN 2012 AND FOREVER.  NEVER ALLOW THEM TO FORGET WHAT THEY DID TO HELP DESTROY THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Republican traitors bow for Obama’s 30 pieces of silver

Posted by thekeenobserver on Monday, June 29, 2009 8:20:30 PM
 

In the Gospel of Matthew, after betraying his Master Jesus for 30 pieces of silver, Judas Iscariot returns to the Jewish temple and flings the coins at the high priest Caiphus– then proceeds to hang himself.

And in a modern-day repeat, eight republican quislings –after voting to destroy theUnited Stateseconomy– may end up hanging themselves politically after having accepted underhanded Whitehouse bribes.

Republicans voting for the Waxman-Markey cap and trade bill: Reichert, Mack, Castle, Lo Biondo, McHugh, Smith (N.J.), Lance, Kirk. Indeed. These conniving turncoats won’t exactly be getting ticker tape parades when they return home to their districts for summer recess.

But before we condemn them even further, isn’t this what serving in Congress has always been about? After all, doesn’t everybody have their price?

These Republicans– having received their “30 pieces of silver”– knew EXACTLY what they were risking; casting votes, not for the good of  their districts –or their country– but in hopes of making themselves known in DC political circles, and furthering their own shameful careers.

Wednesday morning- June 24:

After the Waxman-Markey draft emerges from committee, Pelosi calls for a vote, knowing full well there were many blue dog Democrats howling nervously on the fence– facing career extinction if they voted yes to this “energy tax” on carbon.

Thursday afternoon- June 25:

Carrots and sticks are flying around Capitol Hill. Pelosi and Rahm Emanuel are in frantic arm-twisting mode, imploring the undecided… “What can we do for you?” …”All votes are on sale”…”What do we need from you to get this passed?”

Illinois Republican Debbie Halvorson is the first to succumb: She had vowed she would “never cave in to pressure from Obama to vote yes on cap and trade.” But then…”I had a nice chat with the President this morning, and I’m fine with the bill (i.e. I’ll vote with my Illinois buddy Obama; he promised me enough pork to feed the Soviet army”).

Next, Henry Waxman got into a spirited “colloquy” with Alan Grayson– a first-term Democrat from a Republican area in central Florida.Grayson then extracted a “pledge of support” from Waxman– $50 million would go to a proposed new hurricane research facility in his district inOrlando, in exchange for his vote.

Then Republican John McHugh– from a conservative upstateNew Yorkdistrict– suddenly reversed his position “in the name of bipartisanship” (and warm-fuzzy feelings in general). Mr. Obama picked off yet another Republican “no” vote and changed it to a “yes.”

McHugh has now been picked to be the next Secretary of the Army; so no need to ever worry again about re-election campaigns. 

Texasblue-dog Democrat Lloyd Doggett went from a firm “no,” to an enthusiastic “yes” after he was promised a “seat at the table” at the House-Senate negotiations on the final package.

There were also a few traitors from the democratic side who voted against their own districts:

Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan (from a heavily industrialized area of northeasternOhio) voted “yes,” explaining that without the bill, the United States would remain energy-dependent on people who want to, (quote) “fly airplanes into our buildings.”

But will Ryan be able replace all the blue-collar workers in his area who find themselves out of a job, after the bill’s provisions hit home? Look for a HUGE earmark– coming soon to Ryan’s district– to “salve” the wound.

Representative John Boccieri (D-Oh.)– another “yes” vote traitor to his manufacturing district in Canton–  countered with a lame story about how (as a child) he remembers, “waiting in gas lines with his father”…and…”this bill reduces foreign oil imports.”

But the oil companies beg to differ, saying their likely course of action would entail “moth-balling” their domestic refineries, and importing refined oil products in greater quantities.

Boccieri can’t possibly be this dense; Obama may have promised him a nice, fat lobbyist’s job–plus a few earmarks to boot– should his Republican district exact their revenge in 2010.

June 25, Thursday night- 6 pm: 

Despite all their horse trading (and coercion), Pelosi and Obama discover they’re still 22 votes short:
Obama invites a group of freshman democrats to a Whitehouse Hawiian luau, telling them…”You’ve got to run every two years, and I completely understand that.” These were the same Democrats who had vowed to their districts…”to stand up the to White House, and vote NO”

 

But after receiving a phone call from Rahm Emanuel, they “melted like butter.” Emanuel had “advised” these rookie democrats (all recently elected from republican districts) that the Whitehouse will not support them in 2010 (no party funding) unless they vote “correctly.” Chalk another 10 ‘yes’ votes to the Pelosi ledger.

3 AM, Friday morning- June 25:

Like a thief in the night, Nancy Pelosi hangs even more carrots from the ceiling of the House- a 325 page addendum to the bill; billions in outright bribery to attract the votes necessary from Midwestern farm states and the coal states out West.

The agriculture areas were promised fat federal subsidies on ethanol, and big “sweeteners” for fertilizer production. Deals were struck with key conservative Democrats over farming offsets and CO2 allowances.

The coal states were promised that the cap and trade energy tax would be postponed until 2020; and there would be enough loopholes for western coal industries to not really need cut back on their CO2 emissions.

.

Friday morning, 8 AM- June 26:

In an act of desperation, a wild-eyed Nancy Pelosi springs druggie Patrick Kennedy from a rehab hospital, just so he could vote on this obscene regressive tax bill.

Friday afternoon 5PM, June 26:

Pelosi discovers she’s still 8 votes short; Sean Hannity cheerfully reports (during his radio talk show), “the vote has now been postponed!”

5:30 PM – 6:30 PM, late Friday afternoon:

In desperation, Obama “mines” 8 more votes, Chicago-style. He calls all republicans elected from “blue” districts, promising them if they vote “yes”, the democrats won’t run anyone against them in 2010—plus the majority of their state’s pork will be “diverted” to their home districts for whatever purposes they have in mind. Viola! The last 8 votes!

6:35 PM:

The Mark Levin talk show unexpectedly reports that the House is now going to vote. His voice drops noticeably as he watches a C-Span monitor– Nancy Pelosi has a smile on her face wider than the Potomac River.  

7:15 PM:

The measure is passed 219 to 212. A mere four-vote swing the other way would have been a huge defeat for the Obama- Pelosi- Reid “axis of evil.” This seriously raises the question of whether most legislators– just like the stimulus package– even knew what they were voting on. 

SUMMARY:

Cap ‘n trade has nothing to do with the environment.

Cap ‘n trade has nothing to do with energy independence.

Obama and Pelosi sweated blood to get it passed for one purpose:  WIPE OUT the so-called middle class by bankrupting them with higher energy costs, and the loss of their livelihood.

And remaining will be the aristocracy ruling at the top; and the serfs at the bottom who are ruled by them.

Obama and his comrades are about to achieve total power over the American people… “If we pass it, it will soon render them poor, and TOTALLY dependent on us, their government!”

Thomas Jefferson once said, (quote) “A government big enough to give you anything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.” (unquote)

Goodbye democracy…hello Depression – cap ‘n trade will no doubt see to that.
