Tea Party Stops the Omnibus…Still Work to Do
DADT, START, DREAM “on deck” this weekend
HOUSE RESUMES BUSH TAX CUTS Bill–May vote LATE Thursday ( or early Friday a.m.)
Let’s take a deep breath, give each other a tip of the hat, and maybe even enjoy a cocktail but this discredited and dingy Congress grinds on in lame duck session….. so there is no rest.
Put your computer on, pull up the two links to the House and Senate and keep checking to see what they are doing. CALL CALL the numbers below. The Democrats are hoping we will all be too busy with the holidays to care what is happening. DO WHAT YOU CAN.
IT’s AN ALL NIGHT PATRIOT RED-EYE LAME DUCK-A LOOZA
The House is trying to pass the Bush Tax Cuts Extensions with the Christmas trimmings. WATCH HERE.
The Senate is currently (6:37 p.m. PST) debating the START arms reduction treaty. WATCH HERE.
[OF COURSE we oppose START treaty. How can we trust Barack Obama of the America apology tour to reduce our nuclear weapons cache? Heritage Foundation report on the dangers of START ]
HEROES and HEELS
Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) was threatening to have the WHOLE DAMN 1,924 page pile of the omnibus bill READ OUT LOUD in the chambers. The reading was scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. EST, but never started. Apparently, Majority leader Reid knew he did not have the votes or was embarrassed to have the whole laundry list of $1.2 TRILLION in spending read aloud. Finally, Reid shows some shame.: Or NOT.
The Senate will either let government run out of money Saturday (which is really OKAY and won’t impact much at all–per Rush and Levin) or do a short-term continuing resolution until the cavalry arrives in January.
Conservative talk show host Mark Levin rolled out one of his patented “Levin surges” with his 8 million listeners this afternoon. The “surge,” myself included, was calling, calling, calling all the wimpy Republicans in the Senate–Lugar, Brown, Collins, Snowe, etc. Within an hour, Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats collapsed like a cold figgy pudding. Just a coincidence? Hahahahah, sure, if you want to think so! DFWUIYKWIMAITTYD!!
Naturally, it’s Majority leader Harry Reid. In giving up the ghost (finally) on the omnibus porkalooza spending bill, he whined about being a Christian again and then wheedled and threatened that some dire consequence would occur if it wasn’t approved. READ OUR LIPS HARRY.: : : : :
: No Pressure, but everything: depends on your participation
NO REST FOR THE PATRIOTS

While you’re at it, you might want to put in a special phone call to retiring open-borders Utah GOP Sen. Bob Bennett (good riddance) and ask him to name names of the Republicans who support massive, costly illegal alien amnesties that undermine immigration enforcement and put law-breaking workers and students ahead of law-abiding ones. Do tell.
