What An Epic Upset The GOP Pulled Out

Play Video
 Video of Sen.Brown
Republican wins MA senate
CNN projects Scott Brown winner of the U.S. Senate seat for Massachusetts.The Progressives took over the Democrat party and are hell bent on destroying it. Thank God their are some smart Democrats in Mass. And thanks to the SEIU members that stood up for what is right instead of what the union tells them to do. Just think 1 year ago the Progressives were saying that the Republicans are done for and they were the ones that killed the Democrat party. If I was a conservative Democrat I would be very scared right now.


  1. What a victory! This should be a HUGE wake-up call to Washington. Doing the happy dance...:)

  2. Great Victory for Conservatives Yesterday,Now it is Time to Think about SENDING OUR, CITIZENS DONT COUNT, Politicans Packing! Be Nice to HEAR Levins are retiring BUT they are ARROGANT Enough to have to BE ASKED to Leave. Voters should GIVE them the ANSWER!

  3. What an anniversary gift for Obummer!! Spot. On. Al.

    The whole nation is dancing with you Liz!!


    Hypocrat spinners are running in overdrive today. I'm really getting a kick out of reading all the Hypocrat contortions about how it doesn't matter. LOL ... the only ones they are deceiving is themselves.

  4. I've been dancing like it's 1994 again. The libs will be bringing out the big guns now. And I do mean guns because they are fricking crazy enough to kill people. Just look at all the rioting they did last year.

  5. Told you they would cry racism. Typical Hypocrat LIEberals:

    Massachusetts: Olbermann Cries Racism
    By Mark Finkelstein
    January 19, 2010

    Amidst the innumerable excuses we're bound to hear for Martha Coakley's defeat, credit Keith Olbermann with likely the most loathsome. The Countdown host would explain away the Scott Brown victory by accusing his supporters of . . . racism. [H/t reader Will H.]

    Olbermann floated his despicable theory to Howard Fineman: "the Republicans and the Tea Partiers will tell you what happens with Scott Brown tonight whether he wins or comes close is a repudiation of Obama policies. And surely one of Obama's policies from the viewpoint of his opponents is it's OK to have this sea-change in American history—to have an African-American president. Is this vote to any degree just another euphemism the way 'states rights' was in the '60s?"

    I was hoping Howard would have the honesty and guts to immediately tell Olbermann where to go. To the contrary, Fineman initially played along: "wow, that is a good question." But by the end of the segment Fineman screwed his courage to the sticking point and proclaimed that he didn't see racism as a big factor.

  6. Remember folks that this is only the beginning. Great start especially from Massachusetts, but it is only the start of 2010.

    Enjoy,as I am too, but we are a long way from the finish line, do not stop at this point,do let up and get friends,neighbors,co-workers,religious congregations people of all stripes involved. There are those that had no clue as to what was happening yesterday in MA and am sure are just as clueless as to the outcome.

    Since 1933, Republicans had a more positive record on civil rights in Congress than the Democrats. In the twenty-six major civil rights votes since 1933, a majority of Democrats opposed civil rights legislation in over 80 percent of the votes. By contrast, the Republican majority favored civil rights in over 96 percent of the votes.

  8. Great point Christopher. I don't see any decrease in the conservative momentum. But you are right we need to push harder now with the momentum. That is what the progressives are doing. We need to keep the mirror up in front of them in order to point out their progressive tactics and motives. John you were right on with how the Democrats would cry racism. It is turning off the conservative black community that votes Democrat. We are seeing the rapture of the Democrat party. Their are a lot of Blue Dog Democrats in the party that don't recognize it anymore since the Progressives took it over. The Progressives don't care about the Democrat party. The Progressives are hyjacking the Democrat party. The voters put these Progressives in office and it will be very harde to root them out now that they are in so deep. The Democrat that aren't Progressive need to take back their party. If they don't they better find a home within another party. These Progressives that took over this country are not what the people want and they better start pushing these Progressives back to the center right or they will not be a real politial party for a very long time. I expect to see a lot more Democrats at the Tea Party Rallies and more union support. No one want to be in a hated profesion. Union is a dirty word thanks to the Progressives in the Democrat Party. Keep up the good work my friends and don't forget,"devided they fall". Now lets go out and devide them like God devided the Red Sea. And don't forget to thank God for having a large hand in this miracle. I think the religious Democrats need to start taking a close look at the voices of the Democrat Party. That is not the Democrat party of JFK the first Roman Catholic President. Thank God He answered our prayers.

  9. To ALL Politicans that are SITTING in OUR Seats. Independants, Conservatives and TEABAGGERS are Going to SEE to it that OUR Seat are RETURNED to the PROPER OWNERS,the Citizens and that SHOULD make ALL the LIBS BLUE!
    Massachusetts Election OUTCOME was MORE NOBAMAS LOSS than Anybody else! WE will NOT be LEAD into Socialism and STAND Idly BY!

  10. Right on Christopher. Never let up on these Hypocrat LIEberals and their idiotic policies.

    Just think, with more hard work, if Ted "The Swimmer" Kennedy's seat has fallen, anything is possible and NO Hypocrat seat is safe.

  11. Thank God is right. You are some of the best bloggers out their. I love the fact that you let it all out. Keep it up and we will take back our country. And the Republicans already said they will turn back HR3400 if the Democrats pass it. I can't see how the Democrats can win.

  12. john, yeah suddenly the left is going to turn into people like Richard Poplawski. Oh, wait that's your side. Hmmm, for all the talk about how violent the left is,you alwasy seem to forget Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, the Centennial Olympic Park bombing, and the anthrax attacks of 2001.

    now i wonder if Christopher Speight will turn out to be a another gun nut rightie.

  13. Great blog, Chris! Very informative and it's always interesting to get others opinions, even if they differ from my own.

    I agree, there is a lot of work to be done, but thankfully, it looks as though we are moving in the right direction.

    On a side note, I am anxiously awaiting Beck's show (The Revolutionary Holocaust)on Friday, is anyone else going to watch?


    P.S. Thanks for the comments on my blog and enjoy those Fish Tacos. :)

  14. Liz you also have a great blog. I love to cook new things. You are very crative with your food ideas. I'll be watching Beck's show. Thanks for reminding everyone about it. I have a hard time watching any kind of holocaust but I need to know what is in the worlds history. It's good to read a womens perspective.

  15. Joe why is the exception to the rule the rule to you Progressives? Why is it we conservatives can point out multiples more violent acts by the liberals and it is fact but you tell us the few times a nutcase goes crazy and you act like we are no different? Just your green terrorists groups like ELF have done more damage then all of the conservative goofballs put together. Muslims are bombing us every which way but loose and you say its the Christians that are dangerous. It is a mental illness with you Progressives. Thank God you're only a fringe group at 21% and dropping. Finaly there is real Hope and Change but it aint what you wanted.hee heee heee

  16. New York Democrat Official to Switch Parties; Run for Governor?

    The GOP Continues to Rebound in the Northeast
    Posted by Brian Faughnan (Profile)

    Remember back when the Republican party was dead in the northeast? It now appears to be a growth industry:

    Albany County Republican Chairman John Graziano called Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy “very, very impressive” and said he would be willing to support the potential Democratic gubernatorial contender - as long as he switches his enrollment to the GOP…

    Levy, whose aides have steadfastly refused to confirm or deny reports that he is meeting with GOP leaders, including state Chairman Ed Cox, has run on the GOP and Conservative lines in the past and drawn heated criticism from Latino Democrats for his right-leaning stance on immigration.

    The county executive has insisted on numerous occasions that he is open to running on multiple lines if he follows through with his bid for governor, but has no plans to switch his enrollment.

    I asked Graziano if the topic of Levy’s enrollment came up last night. He said it did, but declined to reveal what the county executive had said.

    “I think it’s unfair of me to tell you; I think that he should tell you,” the chairman said. “But why would he be coming and talking to Republican chairs unless he was interested in getting endorsed as a Republican?”

    “You don’t present yourself to people unless you’re asking for something that would be important, or is important, to you. Everyone in that room wants him to become a Republican.”

    To borrow a phrase from TOTUS, I want to make something perfectly clear. The fact that Levy is even considering switching parties to seek the governorship is in part a testament to the weakness of the field. That said, Levy has run with Republican endorsements before - as recently as in 2007, in fact. But he would not be considering this bid if he did not see a golden opportunity to win the highest office in the state.

    I’ve reached out to some New York sources in an attempt to confirm Levy’s plans. I’ll update if I get confirmation.

    How do you liberals explain the growth in Republican Conservative progression?

  17. Vice President Biden v Senator Biden on Filibuster

    Posted by Brian Darling

    Tuesday, January 19th at 1:02PM EST

    The left is organizing a public relations campaign to rid the Senate of the filibuster rule and they intend on using a strong arm tactic to exterminate dissent and debate. With a simple majority vote, many of the same Democrats who were apoplectic about Republican plans to rid the Senate of the filibuster for judicial nominees in 2005, are readying a parliamentary maneuver that they denounced during the Bush presidency. Consistency is not a strong point of politicians and Vice President Joe Biden has completed a flip flop on the filibuster than will make your head spin.

    Vice President Joe Biden, who is President of the U.S. Senate pursuant to the Constitution, has reversed his course on the filibuster according to Ben Smith at Politico. Biden was quoted recently as saying:

    “As long as I have served … I’ve never seen, as my uncle once said, the Constitution stood on its head as they’ve done. This is the first time every single solitary decisions has required 60 senators,” he said at a Florida fundraiser, according to the pool report. “No democracy has survived needing a super majority.”

    This is the same Vice President Biden who, as Senator, participated in numerous filibusters. See this speech from May 23, 2005 during the debate over Priscilla Owen to be on the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals:

    Mr. President, my friends and colleagues, I have not been here as long as Senator Byrd, and no one fully understands the Senate as well as Senator Byrd, but I have been here for over three decades. This is the single most significant vote any one of us will cast in my 32 years in the Senate. I suspect the Senator would agree with that.

    Now, Biden is referring to the Republican leadership’s threat to implement the so called “Nuclear Option” to pass this nomination with a simple majority. Republicans toyed with the idea that they could change the Senate rules with a simple majority to abolish the filibuster for President Bush’s nominees to the federal bench.

    We should make no mistake. This nuclear option is ultimately an example of the arrogance of power. It is a fundamental power grab by the majority party, propelled by its extreme right and designed to change the reading of the Constitution, particularly as it relates to individual rights and property rights. It is nothing more or nothing less. Let me take a few moments to explain that. Folks who want to see this change want to eliminate one of the procedural mechanisms designed for the express purpose of guaranteeing individual rights, and they also have a consequence, and would undermine the protections of a minority point of view in the heat of majority excess. We have been through these periods before in American history but never, to the best of my knowledge, has any party been so bold as to fundamentally attempt to change the structure of this body.

    Now the shoe is on the other foot, and Vice President Biden is setting the table for an attack on the filibuster for nominees and legislation. They want ObamaCare so bad, the left seems ready to use this same Nuclear Option they denounced in 2005 to rid the Senate of debate and dissent. More from Senator Biden:

    It is important we state frankly, if for no other reason than the historical record, why this is being done. The extreme right of the Republican Party is attempting to hijack the Federal courts by emasculating the courts’ independence and changing one of the unique foundations of the Senate; that is, the requirement for the protection of the right of individual Senators to guarantee the independence of the Federal Judiciary. This is being done in the name of fairness? Quite frankly, it is the ultimate act of unfairness to alter the unique responsibility of the Senate and to do so by breaking the very rules of the Senate.

    Senator Biden expressed concern that ridding the Senate of the filibuster would emasculate the body and turn it into a pure majoritiarian body:

  18. The rest...The nuclear option is a twofer. It excises, friends, our courts and, at the same time, emasculates the Senate. Put simply, the nuclear option would transform the Senate from the so-called cooling saucer our Founding Fathers talked about to cool the passions of the day to a pure majoritarian body like a Parliament. We have heard a lot in recent weeks about the rights of the majority and obstructionism. But the Senate is not meant to be a place of pure majoritarianism.

    Biden then argued that the filibuster serves the important role of “compromise and moderation” in the Senate.

    Republicans control the Senate, and they have decided they are going to change the rule. At its core, the filibuster is not about stopping a nominee or a bill, it is about compromise and moderation. That is why the Founders put unlimited debate in. When you have to–and I have never conducted a filibuster–but if I did, the purpose would be that you have to deal with me as one Senator. It does not mean I get my way. It means you may have to compromise. You may have to see my side of the argument. That is what it is about, engendering compromise and moderation.

    Biden stated that our “Founders put unlimited debate in” the Constitution. If it is in the Constitution pursuant to Biden went on to state that the views of Independents and moderates in the Senate will get tossed to the side if you get rid of the filibuster rule.

    Ladies and gentlemen, the nuclear option extinguishes the power of Independents and moderates in this Senate. That is it. They are done. Moderates are important only if you need to get 60 votes to satisfy cloture. They are much less important if you need only 50 votes. I understand the frustration of our Republican colleagues. I have been here 32 years, most of the time in the majority. Whenever you are in the majority, it is frustrating to see the other side block a bill or a nominee you support. I have walked in your shoes, and I get it.

    Senator Biden feared that ridding the Senate of the filibuster would lead to the Congress becoming a European style parliamentary governance:

    The exercise of the nuclear option also has another fundamental impact on the government–it will transform the Congress from a bifurcated legislature where political parties were never intended to rule supreme into a quasi-parliamentary system where a single party will dominate.

    The history of the filibuster and the “facts” would erode the Senate’s power pursuant to Article 1 of the Constitution:

    The facts are these. There was no ability to limit debate until 1917. And then the explicit decision was made to limit debate on legislation if 2/3 of the Senators present and accounted for supported cloture. Even then, the Senate rejected a similar limitation on executive nominations, including nominees to the federal bench. It wasn’t until 1949 that the new cloture rule also applied to nominations. The question at present is, will the Senate actually aid and abet in the erosion of its Article I power by conceding to another branch greater influence over who ends up on our courts? As Senator Stennis once said to me in the face of a particularly audacious claim by President Nixon: “Are we the President’s men or the Senate’s?”

    In the battle between Senator Joe Biden and Vice President Joe Biden on the filibuster, conservatives should side with Senator Biden. For more resources on the necessity of the filibuster, you can refer to “The Filibuster is Essential for Democracy,” “The Filibuster is Constitutional and Essential for Freedom,” and “Leftists Continue War Against Filibuster.”

  19. I was so happy when I heard this! It sends a huge statement. I find it interesting that I can't even find anything about it in our paper. It should be on the front page!


Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
