Mrs. Lorra B and I have been discussing writing an article together when I blurted out “Why don’t we write on Harry Reid.” I can’t believe he keeps getting reelected.

In fact I had written a number of articles on election corruption involving the “Dingy One.”

imageedit_2_6844081591

Just what is it about Democrat Harry Reid that has so many American’s questioning how and why he continues to get re-elected?

Many might attack Reid because they may simply believe he is too old to competently hold his office believing that his decisions are slightly off or unethical at best.

Others may not agree with his alleged hypocrisy and shady tactics. Yet, others believe it to be a combination of those two factors and his political stance that sends them over the edge. Whatever the complaint, Harry Reid seems to be stepping on toes and leaving voters screaming for term limits.

Reid, 74, soon to be 75 on December 2, is the Senate Majority Leader and has been since 2006. He was first elected to office in 1987. That means that Harry Reid has been in office for 27 years leading some to believe he has become numb to America’s plight.

Or, do all of those years of experience give Reid an upper hand in dealing with the pressing issues of today’s America? If you ask Mary Landreiu (D-LA) she would probably say, yes. Or, would she?

 

“I think Harry Reid gets beat up more than he deserves. I am going to wait to see what the leadership looks like. We’ll see.” These were Landreiu’s words on whether or not she would vote for Reid. “I’m not saying yes and I’m not saying no.”

Interesting since Landrieu stated in April that she would absolutely vote for Reid.

Reid has struggled with popularity and a recent poll shows that only 13% of Americans have a positive or ‘somewhat positive’ view of him.

That means that twice as many citizens see Reid in an unfavorable light making this the lowest rating since the Nevada Democrat became majority leader.

But why is Reid seen in this negative light? According to Megyn Kelly of Fox News, some of his most highlighted offenses are that he stole lemonade stand money that a little boy was raising to help his dying father.

She stated that he, allegedly, beat his wife for ten years or so. Whether that is the truth or not has yet to be seen but the damage, in the public eye, has already been done.

What has been evident and true concerning the tactics of Harry Reid is that he will seem to do anything to keep control of the Democratic seat, whether he is in it or not, by making outlandish remarks and by flip-flopping on many issues.

Reid has made ridiculous statements concerning Obamacare and has, according to The Blaze, “asserted that the stories of Americans who lost coverage, or had to pay more, or had to find new doctors under the Affordable Care Act are all lies.” This, of course, isn’t true in the slightest as many Americans have not only lost their doctors but have also had to endure higher costs as well.

 

pCeOm9nReid even went so far as to call all the ads concerning Obamacare lies and those who posted the ads liars. It wasn’t until later that same day that he returned to the Senate floor and said, “I can’t say that every one of the Koch brothers’ ads are a lie, but I’ll say this…the vast, vast majority of them are.” Really?

 

His statements on Obamacare were wrong but the fact that Harry Reid made Judicial Watch’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” list…again, is remarkable.

“The Judicial Watch list is alphabetical, so there is no way to tell whether he’s the most corrupt or 10th.

But, Nevadans know that Reid routinely makes headlines for alleged “influence peddling,” securing tens of millions of dollars worth of deals for his sons and their clients, including a Chinese green energy group; securing $21.5 million to build a bridge over the Colorado River from a gambling town in Nevada to a town in Arizona where Harry owns 160 acres of undeveloped land; misappropriation of campaign funds; and an alleged $600,000 bribery deal and more,” according to The Blaze.

Reid doesn’t spend time defending himself against accusations of wrongdoing nor does he explain why his positions seem to change from vigorously being against an issue to latter being all for it.

On illegal immigration, in 1993, Harry said: “if making it easy to be an illegal alien isn’t enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant? No sane country would do that, right? Guess again.

If you break our laws by entering this country without permission and give birth to a child, we reward that child with U.S. citizenship and guarantee access to all public and social services this country provides.

The Unpatriotic Laziness of Harry Reid

Could there be a more important reason for Republicans to take back the Senate then to remove power from the recalcitrant Harry Reid?

Vote early and often, that’s what democrats do.

H/T Eagle Rising

The numbers never lie. Currently, 352 bills that passed the House are awaiting action on Harry Reid’s desk. Of these bills:

Me0qSX4Fap4D5kgdtVEdoL1RGUvjqA_FdpVfEwguW4UyXCGEVuKc4H6SiYHXV1d8UM6SlGHi0SrHXnnbaqPaaaAa1UHuXgaZpOB4LmG4Lr5qCkmDMbuhaaCNnotgNcOQEh7a_0_P2KtvS-i4g2gzMaD1_G8-2lT-M4c1r8i0bOxrUNhgH_Ewcw=s0-d-e1-ftTwins

More evidence of the lies and cover-ups coming from President Obama and Harry Reid. Check out the stats coming from Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-KS) office…

At the weekly press conference with Republican leaders Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins (KS-02) highlighted the 352 bills – 98% which passed with bipartisan support in the House – that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid refuses to bring up for a vote. The numbers never lie…

– 98% passed with bipartisan support
– Nearly 70% passed with 2/3rds support or more
– Over 50% passed with no opposition at all
– And 55 were introduced by Democrats

And still, Harry Reid refuses to bring them up for a vote.

Why does the media continue to allow the unpatriotic laziness from Harry Reid to continue? Perhaps if the media spent a little more time being a government watchdog and a little less time being cheerleaders for the Democrat Party… our Congress would be getting more done? (Specifically, maybe Harry Reid would be getting more done?)

Is Harry Reid telling us he’s about to throw in the towel?

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Nothing would make a great deal of people happier.  “Stop the presses,” OK having him go down with Pelosi, Boxer, Wasserman-Shultz and the entire Congressional Black Caucus on the plane shot down over Kiev would likely top that.

We all know Harry Reid for what he is, the crooked, recalcitrant, reprobate, Majority Leader of the Senate from Searchlight, Nevada. 

On watching him carry on about missing his Pomegranates and Roses, I’m reminded of a recent town hall meeting where he will not look at the person who has asked him a question, he looks straight down.

I was raised to believe when a person carries himself in that manner, he or she may have trouble with the truth.

Thus I add another adjective to describe “Dingy Harry,” a  “Lying Weasel,” but you already knew that.

Why Obama’s Meeting With Harry Reid Could Be Tense

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

obama-sweating

For the life of me I can’t imagine a single moment of Obama’s term until he is thrown out of office that won’t be tense.

Harry-Perez-Hilton-Reid

If Jon Kerry weren’t such a blithering idiot, his comments on, “I respect the work of Harry Reid,” sound like the kiss of death.

Barack Obama is meeting with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) Monday afternoon, just after two of the president’s top cabinet secretaries publicly brushed off the Senate leader’s concern about trade authority.

Why Obamas Meeting With Harry Reid Could Be Tense

The meeting was scheduled to be in the Oval Office at 2:30 p.m., one of several meetings Obama plans to have with congressional Democrats this week.

On Saturday, Secretary of State John Kerry and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, both former U.S. senators who previously served with Reid, spoke at the Munich Security Conference where they were dismissive of Reid’s opposition to renewing fast-track trade authority, CNN reported.

“I respect Harry Reid, worked with him for a long time,” Kerry said. “I think all of us have learned to interpret a comment on one day in the United States Senate as not necessarily what might be the situation in a matter of months.”

Speaking to a pro-fast-track audience of allies, Hagel agreed.

“Let’s be smart and let’s be wise and let’s be collaborative and use all of the opportunities and mechanisms that we have to enhance each other – culturally, trade, commerce, exchanges,” Hagel said.

Obama, like most previous presidents, is seeking fast-track trade authority to allow him to work out the details of a trade treaty, then submit to the Senate for an up-or-down vote. This would prohibit various amendments too from being tacked onto a trade agreement by Congress.

As majority leader, Reid decides which legislation comes up for a vote in the Senate, which ratifies treaties. Reid said Wednesday he is “against fast track. I think everyone would be well advised not to push this right now.”

During the White House press briefing Monday, press secretary Jay Carney said the president expects to have a productive conversation with Reid. He stressed that pending trade deals with Europe and Asia would expand the economy and better paying jobs.

“Trade is an important issue on the president’s agenda,” Carney told reporters. “The agreements the president is pursuing protect American workers and protect the environment.”

Ahead of the meeting, Carney added that the president and Reid “talk all the time,” but did not know for certain they would discuss trade at Monday’s meeting.

 

Budget Battle: Democrats Block Amendment to Restore Military Retirement Benefits for Wounded Warriors

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Harry Reid, Senate leader and resident  “Socialist cat herder.”

It is well past time we fire those in congress who have their priorities bought and paid for.

Certainly those Republicans in the Senate voting for this atrocity should be made to do a live in with a deployed unit if they are going to be allowed to “Represent,” us.

Wake up America, you vote for these fools, I certainly don’t

Apparently Congress failing to make sure military death benefits for families of soldiers killed overseas would be paid out during the government shut wasn’t a big enough disgrace for lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Here we are two months later and Democrats have blocked an amendment that would restore $6 billion in cuts to military retirement pensions over the next 10 years.

Town Hall

December 18, 2013

A final effort by Senate Republicans to halt cuts to pensions of military retirees failed late Tuesday, after Democrats blocked an amendment to the controversial budget bill.

The two-year budget agreement, which cleared a key test vote earlier in the day, was expected to get a final vote no later than Wednesday.

Ahead of the final vote, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., tried unsuccessfully to use a parliamentary tactic to force a vote on the amendment, which he wrote to undo the cuts for military retirees.

Think we don’t have the money to offset the $6 billion? Think again. Apparently illegal immigrants collecting IRS tax money is more important than making sure our veterans are taken care of after voluntarily putting their lives on the line for our country.

Sessions wanted to instead eliminate an estimated $4.2 billion in annual spending by reining in an IRS credit that illegal immigrants have claimed.

He and fellow senators argued the bill unfairly sticks veterans and other military retirees with the cost of new spending.

“It’s not correct, and it should not happen,” Sessions said on the floor.

“By blocking my amendment, they voted to cut pensions for wounded warriors,” he said afterwards. “Senators in this chamber have many valid ideas for replacing these pension cuts, including my proposal to close the tax welfare loophole for illegal filers, and all deserved a fair and open hearing. But they were denied.”

Watch What Happens When a Democratic Rep. Decides She Doesn’t Want to Answer Questions About Benghazi

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Apparently not only and understanding of the U.S. Constitution is required to be a member of congress, but having a working knowledge of international geography is over their pay grade as well. 

1472982_660958600629168_2108492779_nLook for her to be shown the door in 2014.

Let’s not be too hard on her, her leader is still trying to visit all “57 states,” in America.

Apparently New Hampshire’s darling Democrat, Ann McClane Kuster has for gotten something of major significance.

She works for her constituents and can’t stand on the administration line of saying nothing.

Equally frightening is that we have another member of congress who had to be reminded by her constituent when she mumbled she would only talk about the Middle East that Benghazi was part of the Middle East.

Democrat members of congress for the most part are not the sharpest members of congress.  They are continually elected by constituents who trade their votes for more taxpayer hand outs keeping them beholden to this senile fools.

Few can top Hammering Hank Johnson (D-GA) when for what unimaginable reason he became concerned about Guam tipping over if additional Marines were stationed there.

Those tying for second, would be Dianne Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Henry “Nostralitis” Waxman, DNC Chair, Debby Wassermann Schultz, Hillary, Biden, Obama, McCaskill, Kling On, Anthony Weiner, Harry Reid, Ed Markey, the list could go on ad infinitum.

How the admiral kept a straight face and didn’t crack up on this moron and laugh in his face is way beyond me.

Could he have been right?  The cartoon version below..

Rep. Ann Kuster (D-N.H.) at a town hall meeting refused to answers questions about last year’s deadly terror attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.
The New Hampshire representative appeared to try to dodge the question by saying Benghazi isn’t in the Middle East, and therefore not pertinent to the discussion at hand.
“I’m certainly not here to talk about it, we’re here to talk about the Middle East,” Kuster said in response to an attendee’s written question.
Libya is located in north Africa. Differing definitions place it either inside or outside the Middle East.

DIRTY HARRY EXEMPTS STAFF FROM OBAMACARE

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

What’s that they say, “Government of the people for the people and by the people?”

harrieats

Apparently “Dirty Harry,”  believes his staffers to not be among them.

That would make them cyborgs, klingons ore elitists.  It’s your choice. 

1469751_455119947926316_1996471115_n

This all misses the obvious, if ObamaCare were such a great deal why would government staffers be exempt and not be scrambling to jump aboard the Titanic?

It’s no secret Washington, D.C. is chock-full of people who think they can run our lives better than we can. 

They just don’t want to have to live under the laws they pass for the rest of us.

Maybe they really do think they’re “better.”  Or “smarter.”  Or just flat-out “more important.” 

To many Americans, there is no better example of Washington, D.C. being out of touch and out of whack than special deals like we saw in ObamaCare.  To many, it’s like rubbing salt in our wounds.

After all, aren’t politicians supposed to serve the people who elect them – not take advantage of them?

As the ObamaCare fiasco unfolds, more and more Americans are beginning to understand what we’ve been served isn’t exactly appetizing. by Rand Paul.

By Chris Frates

Washington (CNN) — Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, one of Obamacare’s architects and staunchest supporters, is also the only top congressional leader to exempt some of his staff from having to buy insurance through the law’s new exchanges.

Reid is the exception among the other top congressional leaders. GOP House Speaker John Boehner, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell have all directed their staffs to join the exchange, their aides said.

In the charged atmosphere surrounding Obamacare, Reid’s decision only gives Republicans more ammo to attack Democrats already suffering politically from the law’s botched rollout.

That’s true. Reid and his personal staff will buy insurance through the exchange.

But it’s also true that the law lets lawmakers decide if their committee and leadership staffers hold on to their federal employee insurance plans, an option Reid has exercised.

Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson emphasized, “We are just following the law.”

Insurers still reporting errors on Obamacare applications

But Republicans are already taking aim.

“I’m sure that regular Americans who just lost their insurance will feel comforted to know that Senator Reid’s staff gets to keep their government plan,” a senior GOP Senate aide said.

Former Reid staffer Jim Manley defended his old boss, arguing that “the only people hypocritical here are Republicans, who made this an issue in the first place.”

And all four House and Senate leaders are required to relinquish their federal employee insurance plans next year and are choosing to enroll in the exchanges.

Obamacare Then, Affordable Care Act Now

 Hum, I wonder why?

The term “Obamacare” has largely disappeared from the mouths of Democrats as the president’s health care reform law has gone from a rallying cry to a political grenade.

President Obama once said he embraced the phrase on the 2012 campaign trail, telling supporters, “I do care.” As recently as Nov. 8, Obama predicted to a laughing crowd in New Orleans that his political opponents would stop using the term once the law became popular.

“I know health care is controversial, so there’s only going to be so much support we get on that on a bipartisan basis — until it’s working really well, and then they’re going to stop calling it Obamacare,” he said. “They’re going to call it something else.”

However, it has seemed to change names with the Democrats instead as the law’s popularity has slumped to new lows in the wake of Obama’s broken promises, rising premiums, insurance cancellations and a disastrous rollout. Obama’s approval rating has also plummeted as a result.

During an apologetic press conference Nov. 14, Obama referred to his law as the Affordable Care Act 12 times but did not say “Obamacare” once. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who has referred to the law as Obamacare in the past, told Meet the Press host David Gregory that she “always” referred to it as the Affordable Care Act during an interview Sunday, and other Democrats are backing off the term as well.
