What Happens When Idiots Are Elected?

Since his election to the US Senate from the state of Arkansas I have been anything but supportive of this moron…..I am speaking of Tom Cotton…..

This babbling buffoon came of the public eye because he took it upon himself to write a letter on the Iran nuke deal….and he even got more of his GOP butt buddies to go along with his break of esprit de corps……

All GOP d/bags love to use the Constitution as a political prop and then spend every waking hour trying to find ways to violate the document……Cotton is NO different!

Sen. Cotton has stolen Jeb’s thunder with his bill…….

 “I will fight to restore the Patriot Act’s metadata program to ensure we have the ability to connect the dots between known foreign terrorists and potential operatives here in the United States,” former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), another White House contender, said in a speech at The Citadel in Charleston, S.C., on Wednesday.

Jeb will have to find a new tagline to show his chops.

Do you like your privacy?  Kiss it good-bye if this mental midget gets his way….

The freshman senator runs roughshod over the Constitution after a horrific terror attack. Sound familiar?

It will be interesting to see how many on the Right that were upset at past attempts to infringe on our privacy will support his idiots lame attempt to look relevant…….

Balls To (Sen.) Cotton!

On any normal news day what would you think would be a bigger story?  1) Iranian nuke deal bill clears Senate or 2) the amount of air in  a football or it could be a story about the UK’s labor leader, Balls……….I will pause here for you to consider the two choices……..(insert music from Jeopardy here)………

You are right!  Of course the air in footballs takes precedent over any other news of the day.  But while you were totally consumed by the amount of air in Brady’s balls….the world may have become a bit more safe.

The Senate bill was voted on yesterday…….it was approved 98-1……..

In a 98-1 vote, the Senate has passed a bill which will give them veto power over the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran. The lone “no” vote was from ultrahawkish Sen. Tom Cotton (R – AR), who was angry his amendments weren’t approved.

Senate hawks are expressing hope that even this watered down bill will effectively do that anyhow, saying they believe that Congress would not approve the deal as presently written, and will insist on “improvements” that will themselves almost certainly be unacceptable to the rest of the nations involved.

The lone dissenting vote was naturally the mouthy freshman senator from Arkansas, Tom Cotton….he voted against it because none of his outrageous amendments made it into the bill…..acting like a kid on the playground that will not get his way so he stomps off and refuses to play any more (we should be so lucky)…….But wait there is more!

Sen. Cotton in his rush to squash the Iranian nuke deal has sided with an Iranian “terrorist” group named…………Organization of Iranian American Communities (OIAC), a front group for the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK or MKO).

An interesting sounding group right that pretends to be the “democratic” voice of Iran in search of regime change……but a closer look at the history of the MEK……..

The MEK, which has worked hard – and spent a lot of money — to gain respectability in Washington since its armed units surrendered to U.S. forces in Iraq in 2003, is believed to have been responsible for the killing of six Americans in Iran between 1973 and 1976. Exiled following a power struggle in the early years of the Islamic Republic, the group fought alongside Saddam Hussein in the Iran-Iraq war. Following a lengthy lobbying and legal campaign that included the payment of substantial honoraria to prominent U.S. politicians and retired national-security officials, the MEK was removed from the State Department’s terrorism list in 2012.

“It appears that Cotton, who has quickly displaced Lindsey Graham as the Senate’s most hawkish member, has decided that it is necessary – perhaps even politically desirable – to make common cause with a group that has committed serious human rights abuses, allied itself for some two decades with Saddam Hussein, and carried out terrorist acts, including against U.S. citizens and servicemen – all in the interests of sabotaging an Iran nuclear agreement.”  (quoted from Lobelog)

In his desire, Cotton, to crap on any chance of a peaceful conclusion of the Iranian nuke situation…..he will chum up with ‘terrorist’ who had , in the past, killed Americans and more recently fought US troops in Iraq just to make his handlers happy…….

Is this someone you want speaking for you?  Seriously!  Is this a person who has the best interests of the country at heart or an opportunistic twat?

I now return you to the mind numbing saga of the grip on Brady’s balls.


The Iran Nuclear Deal: From Both Sides

By now the media is all drooling over the deal struck in the US Senate……they are smiling and jerking off because it is a bi-partisan deal, something sadly missing in today’s DC……

The media is laser focused on this deal and its contents…..this gives them something to fixate on for weeks to come….ad nauseum.  The American people will turn to their fave propaganda outlet to get all the important news on this deal.  They will then make their site the “must go to” site for all the truths and the lies about the deal…..But sadly most Americans will have NO independent opinion of what is happening……all the know is that they hate/love the deal and that is where the opinion will cease.

What do you know about the nuke deal between Iran and the US?  I mean really kno0w….not what some TV personality tells you you need to know…..then may I suggest that you read it for yourself….then form an opinion…..

The Iran nuclear deal: full text – CNN.com.

That is the full text of the agreement we have with Iran….do you see any problems?

Now I ask….what do you know about the bi-partisan deal reached in the Senate?  We know what the talking heads have to say….but is it a good deal or is it just a smoke screen?

If you want answers…..may I suggest that you take the time to read the text of the bill….then form an opinion…..(probably wishful thinking but I keep hoping that the people will educate themselves)……..


That is what the bill says….now if you have spent some time on this…..what do you think of the deal, the bi-partisan deal?

Is there any way that it can be used to scuttle any of the deal with Iran?

You betcha!  Try Section under Semi- Annual Report….paragraph I……..

“(I) An assessment of—

“(i) whether, and the extent to which, Iran supported acts of terrorism; and

“(ii) whether Iran directly supported, financed, planned, or carried out an act of terrorism against the United States or a United States person anywhere in the world.

There you have it….the smoking gun!  Who will decide the answers to the questions……where will the proof come from?  The US has labeled Iran as a sponsor of terrorism for decades…..that will be the go to section for nullifying the deal……

This is how they can scuttle the deal and still look like they were somehow cooperating…..it is all a game……a dangerous game….but a game nonetheless……and to expect his deal will have a fighting chance is being very optimistic.

Even if it survives in its original form there will be endless hearings and accusations until the deal collapses……..let’s not forget that Israel will be calling in all its favors to the Congress to fight ratification.

Iran: Let’s Make A Deal

Since the US and Iran started negotiating a deal on the nuke production the GOP and their masters Israel have been trying to kill that deal…..never forgot the letter written by the mental midget, Sen. Cotton of Arkansas……then there is the Congress that will do anything to keep the Obama admin from accomplishing anything……especially something as important as a nuke deal with Iran…..

Sen. Corker, who I do not trust as far as I can spit him and traitor Dems like Schumer and Menendez have been working together to find a way to look relevant in this deal…….and after a couple of days of jerking each others privates they have what could be called a deal….

“We have reached a bipartisan agreement that keeps the congressional review process absolutely intact, full of integrity.” So said Sen. Bob Corker this morning in revealing that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s Republicans and Democrats have arrived at a compromise on a bill that would give Congress the chance to review any Iran nuke deal—setting the stage for a possible veto … and veto override. The White House has long maintained Obama would stop such a bill, but the New York Times reports that Senate Democrats hope an “overwhelming vote” this afternoon leads him to re-examine that decision. The committee will vote on the bill at 2:15pm, reports Politico, and it’s expected to have no trouble passing.

The compromise bill whittles down the congressional review period: Instead of 60 days, there would be a 30-day initial review, plus up to another 22 days, which the Times reports would be divided as follows: 12 days for Obama to decide whether to veto “a resolution of disapproval” should that occur, and 10 days for Congress to decide whether to override his veto. Final agreement on an Iran deal is slated to come by June 30, but if the deal is submitted to Congress after July 9, then the review period would balloon to 60 days.

Since the majority of the people want a deal with Iran over the nukes…..something 60% want a deal…….the Congress had to look like they are doing somethging……and the breath of fresh air with a little bi-partisanship should make these dudes look like they are actually doing something…..

When was the last time that we say this much working together for a common goal?  Now ask….why now?  To what end?

To say that I am skeptical is an understatement…….there is more to this “deal” than some wishful thinking of bi-partisanship…….NOPE!  Do not trust these people to act responsibly.  There is another shoe to fall…..I am just waiting on the thump!

The 47 Republican Samurai – FPIF

Has anyone heard the story of the 47 Ronin?  It is a Japanese legend of dedication, loyalty and revenge……47 samurai lost their lord in a palace coup and they decided that they could not let this affront go…..they waited and then attacked the opposition lords castle and exacted revenge by cutting off his head……they then turned themselves in and faced their punishment……

The story made me think of another 47 people that are motivated by revenge……US Senate……

Say Good-Bye To Harry

The story of the day…..will not be that the US is dangerously close to yet another conflict in the Middle East…….or that the battle for Tikrit is getting weirder and weirder……..nope none of that will matter….the gigantic news is that Harry Reid will not go for re-election in 2016……

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid announced this morning he won’t be seeking re-election in 2016, the New York Times reports. The Nevada senator, who reveals he’s been thinking about retiring “for months,” per the Times, says he’s not ending his nearly 30 years in the Senate because he lost his seat as majority leader in November or because of the injuries he suffered during a Jan. 1 exercise session. But in a press release titled “Thank You,” he acknowledges that the “accident has caused us for the first time to have a little down time. I have had time to ponder and to think.” And the result of that thinking was the determination that it’s time to go. “I want to be able to go out at the top of my game,” he tells the Times. “I don’t want to be a 42-year-old trying to become a designated hitter.”

He also acknowledged he doesn’t want to siphon campaign funds that could be used to help Democrats in hotly contested states take back Senate control from the GOP. “I think it is unfair for me to be soaking up all the money to be re-elected with what we are doing in Maryland, in Pennsylvania, in Missouri, in Florida,” he tells the paper. “These are big, expensive states.” Not that Reid plans on simply coasting by during his lame-duck period. “My friend, Senator McConnell, don’t be too elated. I am going to be here for 22 months, and you know what I’m going to be doing? The same thing I’ve done since I first came to the Senate,” he says in the release.

What will the Dems do without their fearless leader?

Unless Dick Durbin makes a stink about it, it appears that Chuck Schumer will replace Harry Reid as the Senate’s Democratic leader come 2016. In an interview after announcing that he would not run for re-election, Reid tells the Washington Post that the New York senator is his pick. “I think Schumer should be able to succeed me,” he says. Schumer is currently the No. 3 Democrat, with Illinois’ Durbin ahead of him as minority whip. But Reid spoke to Durbin today by phone and tells the Post that Durbin will step aside for Schumer.

Neither Schumer nor Durbin has made an official comment on succession plans, but Schumer’s team has long made it known that he would try to replace Reid whenever he stepped down, reports the Hill. One other name being mentioned frequently as a contender is the fourth-ranking Democrat, Patty Murray of Washington state. Even before Reid’s endorsement, however, Schumer was the heavy favorite, notes the Hill.

Oh goody…..a Clinton Dem will lead the Congress……it is NO secret that I do not approve of much that Reid has done….but at least he had the guts to do it….does anyone really think that Schumer has those guts?

I do not….I see him going back to the Blue Dog politics of Clinton…..if so the poor will suffer the most just like they did under Bubba……..

Any thoughts?

New Term: (Sen.) Cotton Mouth

I wish I could just move on from this Babbling Buffoon…..but he will not shut up so I can move on!  Sen. Cotton may receive my “Crack’d Pot Award”……..

Sen. Cotton from Arkansas….that low level senator that has walked into DC with his mouth open and has not shut it yet.  We all know about his “infamous” letter to Iran trying to crap on the nuke negotiations the admin is in the middle of…..and then he went off with his expansionism bullsh*t in his speech to the Senate…..and that is where most of the news was reported…..he was chest thumping like ALL GOP senators over the military…..but while he was making his first speech he said something that made me……. FREAK!

The Obama admin said that they would re=assess our policies with Israel for some of the statements that BiBi made trying to sway the elections……but Cotton;s reaction to this news was hilarious………

Cotton, the right-wing freshman in his second month in the Senate, called Psaki’s comments “worrisome“ – for a very specific reason.
“While Prime Minister Netanyahu won a decisive victory, he still has just started assembling a governing majority coalition. These kinds of quotes from Israel’s most important ally could very well startle some of the smaller parties and their leaders with whom Prime Minister Netanyahu is currently in negotiations.
“This raises the question, of course, if the administration intends to undermine Prime Minister Netanyahu’s efforts to assemble a coalition by suggesting a change to our longstanding policy of supporting Israel’s position with the United Nations.”
Think about the quote…..he is worried that the statements from the State department could effect delicate negotiations for Israel…….does this moron really NOT see what he is saying?
But wait there is more!  On Face The Nation Cotton made the comment that ” Iran was starting to control the region……my God they already control Tehran”…….apparently he does not know that Tehran is the capital of………Wait for it……… Iran!
Not only does this mental midget not know the Constitution but he has NO idea about geography either………with this much idiocy what makes him capable of governing?
The GOP has done this to itself…….it has created a generation of morons……I kinda like the quote……”All that self-expression has just created a generation of morons, hooked on an endless appetite for rubbish.
Need I say more?
