FL Rep. Alan Grayson Demands That Federal Government Imprison Republican Activist For 5 Years

The student has learned from the master.

That sounds almost too far fetched to be true, doesn’t it? Yet it’s happening.

The Politico reports:

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), prone for throwing his own political bombs at Republicans, has threatened a local critic with five years in jail for creating the website “mycongressmanisnuts.com,”

The Orlando Sentinel reports that Grayson wrote a letter this week to Attorney General Eric Holder demanding that the federal government imprison Republican activist Angie Langley for five years because of her website criticizing him.

The website, designed to raise money against Grayson, catalogues videos and news clippings that portray the provocative congressman in an unfavorable light. It courts donors to donate money to help elect his Republican challenger next year – collecting $3,725 to date.

Grayson accuses the activist of misrepresenting the fact that she’s a constituent of his (she lives outside his district).

Grayson’s complete letter to Holder here.

The My Congressman is Nuts website is here.

Now that they have to lawyer up, they might want to start a legal defense fund, as well.


Red Alert: Reid Trying to Ram Rod Cloture Vote Through Monday Night

I swear to God, the Dem leadership must be possessed. Virtually NOBODY wants this stupid bill, and they are determined to sneak it through next week while the country is focused on Christmas festivities. This is downright evil.

Senate sources say that  the most important vote on health care does not occur on Christmas Eve…

If Senator Reid gets a bill and files cloture before tomorrow night, the first cloture vote would probably come at around 1 a.m. on Monday. THIS is the vote we need to be focused on. We’ve only got THIS weekend to convince  Senators to stop this health care bill.

We have to watch this bunch like hawks.

Tabitha Hale has an urgent health care vote message for you:

Also stay on top of:

Blanche Lincoln
Ben Nelson
Roland Burris
Claire McCaskill
Jim Webb
Russ Feingold


Finally! A Republican embraces  “the party of no” label.

Say it. Live it. Love it.

And Byron York has been exploring the motives for this seemingly self destructive behavior on the part of the Dem leadership.

Readers question Dems’ motives on health care

It’s really not rocket science.

Video: What The Climate Treaty Is All About

Is this what Obama had in mind when he said,

“I have to be honest, as the world watches us … I think our ability to take collective action is in doubt and it hangs in the balance,” Obama told the COP-15 plenary session as hope faded for anything more than a vague political agreement.

Here’s the world watching, and taking  “collective action” :

Lest you forget, the global warming true believers at the Copenhagen conference gave Chavez a standing O for his anti-freedom, anti-Capitalism tirade the other day. How different are these protesters from that audience?

As I said, earlier, Obama has no interest in what the American people think, because our belief in AGW and support for  cap and trade is dwindling.

But Obama and his fellow travelers know what’s best for us.


Obama O-bob-a sans teleprompter  in Copenhagen.


The Time To Say “The Time For Talk Is Over” Is Over

One of Obama’s favorite rhetorical crutches made an appearance, today, in his bold Copenhagen speech, designed to throw a lifeline to the stalled climate talks.

Obama, Dec. 18, 2009:

“I have to be honest, as the world watches us … I think our ability to take collective action is in doubt and it hangs in the balance,” Obama told the COP-15 plenary session as hope faded for anything more than a vague political agreement.

When Obama stews about “the world” watching…are Americans included in that equation? Because I can assure him, that most Americans watching this farce are rooting for it to fall apart completely. But I don’t think he really cares what Americans think.

“The time for talk is over, this is the bottom line: We can embrace this accord, take a substantial step forward. We can do that, and everyone who is in this room will be part of an historic endeavor, or we can choose delay,” he said.

Here are some more times when talk was allegedly “over”:

Obama on the (now failed) Stimulus package Feb 5, 2009:

“The time for talk is over,” he added. “The time for action is now, because we know that if we do not act, a bad situation will become dramatically worse. Crisis could turn into catastrophe for families and businesses across the country.”

Obama on health care legislation, July 21, 2009:

“The time for talk is through.” President Obama, talking to liberal bloggers on a conference call Monday night.

Obama on health care legislation, September 9, 2009:

“The time for bickering” over health care is over.


Obama to Israel:

“It is past time to stop talking about starting negotiations,” Obama said before talks that included the two leaders as well as senior officials from the U.S., Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Talks “must begin and begin soon.”

Obama campaigning For Creigh Deeds, August 7, 2009:

“I don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess.”

Let me be clear…it’s time to retire “the time for talk is over” cliche.

As for the Copenhagan farce? It looks like Obama’s stern words were not enough to heal the divisions and stop the rising of the oceans. Hot Air reports:

Breaking: India, China walk out of Copenhagen

Barack Obama came, he spoke, and no one concurred:

India and China have taken a united stand and walked out of the climate summit as Copenhagen talks fail.

Tensions prevailed at the climate talks at Copenhagen today, as Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh and China premier Wen Jiabao walked out of the summit along with their respective delegations, as talks failed.

Obama feted Singh just this month, saying that they should be impressed that India got first crack at Obama’s state dinner agenda.  Apparently, Singh was less impressed than Obama presumed.


Al Franken Wields Gavel, Senate Comity hardest Hit

Who gave Al Franken the gavel?

The left is gleeful that Franken “punked” the loathed Liebermann, who is actually onboard this stinkbomb. The excuse for this rudeness is that  Reid has imposed a deadline to get this thing done by Christmas, so everybody has to hurry, hurry hurry…because the Dems know that the longer people have to look at the bill, the more unpopular it will become.

Meanwhile,as Michelle Malkin reports, Reid showed up more than hour late to the floor to make a motion to adjourn:

Apologizes and says “other business” prevented him from being on time. Moves to recess Senate until 12:01am. This will clear the way to hold the cloture vote on the defense authorization bill as early as 1 hour after the Senate convenes, so the Dems can rush into health care.

Republicans are not amused.

7:00pm Eastern: McConnell on the floor talking about how Demcare has become a “literal political nightmare.” And “they want to rush this bill through by Christmas?” And “here’s the most outrageous part: They want us to vote on a bill that no one outside majority leader’s conference room has seen. No one has seen it…This entire process is a complete charade.”

McCain says he doesn’t know what’s happening here….in this body…

He’d better get up to speed. He and the other Senate  Republicans need have some tricks up their sleeves to gum up these works.
