When is Elijah Cummings going to accuse the committee of being politically motivated, or is that his (automatic) ‘partisan’ go to line directly after the testimony? Perhaps that’s why he prefers a public hearing and attention it brings to divisive politics…
Cummings is a racist partisan; a knuckle-dragging joke elected solely for his skin color (by his like-minded skin-color-only constituency) not for his competency to serve.

So did Bill, but it turns out he’s just a high profile propagandist for the GOP establishment. He may be right on this issue, but so much of bi-partisan politics is automatically taking the opposite position of the president in order to undermine their leadership, and it usually rears it’s ugly head in matters of national security and foreign affairs. Think of how the sides have switched on NSA spying (Patriot Act), and the war against terrorism. The left was absolutely appalled when we were using the Patriot Act to combat Muslim extremism and now the Obama administration is using the NSA against political opponents. The left became entirely anti-war sometime shortly after they voted nearly unanimously to go to war in Iraq and realized they might be facing a two term president. The right was all for the war on terror until Obama decided to selectively pick and choose which Muslim country to overthrow next. Then agreed (Obama-McCain alliance, a union that happens all too often) we should arm the Syrian rebels (ISIS), and help them overthrow the Syrian government. Now both the left and the right want to crush ISIS, but the left doesn’t want to commit militarily (with our own military), and the right believes it can defeat a group with no permanent residence throughout the Middle East and the world. I’ll take Rand Paul and the Constitution for 4 years (with energy independence and an urgency placed on alternate fuel vehicles and abandoning the Middle East), over endless wars and

SLAPTHELEFT is absolutely correct. Every time someone frames a discussion with “not to be discriminatory” or “maybe this isn’t PC,” it gives credence to a sick and twisted ideology. It needs to be flat out rejected. The left has been allowed to set the rules without any moral or ethical foundation. This country was founded on Christian principles, not the progressive motto of “we make it up, as we go along.” The term racism may have been the origin of political correctness used by Communist Russia to silence it’s political opponents. Sound familiar? In order to control people, freedom of speech has to be limited. Even atheists should be capable of distinguishing between liberty (good) and control (evil).

Are you referring to the ones that modern Republicans have adopted from the democratic party (BIG government, national debt, etc.), the historical one’s that set black people free and opposed the Jim Crow laws, or the one’s conservatives still believe in that don’t have an expiration date (Constitutional Republic, individual liberty, free market, freedom of religion, etc.)?

VagueSoul25 – Islam is a satanic religion. It imitates both Christianity and Judaism (500+ years after the fact), yet teaches to kill Christians and Jews. It was founded by a leader who raped, murdered and pillaged all the land they could conquer. The Bible and faith is predicated on free will. The Koran demands absolute obedience (control). It will be a Muslim caliphate that Jesus, the lost tribes, and the Israelites (all converted) fight in the final battle.

Like your motivation for discrediting it. Democrats for democracy sounds like a group that endorses stoning people to death for not being ‘politically correct.’

I’d like to give Chris, the Blaze and the show the benefit of the doubt, but Bill has shown his true colors, we know what his motivation for writing about Jesus was, the Bible tells the real story (not Bill 2000 years afterwards), the perceived accuracy is dependent upon the latest theory or discovery, passion doesn’t equate to accuracy, acting may be a skill or talent but it’s one dependent upon deception, and I’d never count on a Muslim to play Jesus with any passion, unless GOD has a plan for him and intends to use this movie to reach his lost sheep.

That’s why establishment Republicans and their propaganda arm (FOX news) are constantly pushing for war. The American public wanted no part of the civil war in Syria, even though John McCain did his best to convince us it was in our best interest to arm the Syrian rebels (ISIS). Now they’re willing to escalate the insanity and align themselves with any state sponsor of terrorism to defeat ISIS. It’s easy to recognize the problem (our dependence on oil and alliance with Saudi Arabia and it’s allies), but Democrats are thwarting energy independence (Keystone XL), pushing for war (bizarro world), and neither side has shown any urgency in developing alternative fuel vehicles. Luckily the innovators at Apple and Google are on it, regardless of their perceived motivations. In the meantime sit back and watch the Republican machine push for war in order for their progressive candidate to receive the presidential nomination.

“The Convention of States will only propose amendments that would 1) impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, 2) limit its power and jurisdiction, and 3) impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.”

If you support the Constitution vote Cruz or Paul.

kevin542 – Term limits are part of the Convention. Whoever wrote this article failed to mention the 3 objectives outlined. Any amendment that doesn’t fit the criteria will be rejected (can’t be voted on).

Obama will be single handedly blocking the will of the people as dictator if he can set the budget with a Republican controlled House and Senate. There’s something wrong with a system where the leader can dictate how much money they get to spend. He will only be allowed to do this because the mainstream media will blame the opposition party, so there will be no pressure for him to sign the bill. Unless he plans on running for a 3rd term (leaked Hillary documents via Valerie Jarrett) there’s no reason to worry about approval ratings if perception does go south. Republicans need to get in front of this and point out blatant hypocrisy of being blamed for shutting down the government as the minority party and also as the majority party, but that would require strategy. The 2 party system and the games need to end. However, if the Republican establishment decides our presidential candidate again, a third party is on the way.
What about the will of the people who voted Obama in? Vetoing a bill or budget does not make the President a "dictator". It is a power and right that he has as a President.
The Republicants know their budget is DOA with the Obamacare Repeal in it. They need to stop wasting taxpayer time and money and pass bills and budgets with bi-partisan support. That means they will have to LEARN how to compromise.
...."compromise" is doing what Kronos wants
wigone, I don't think you know what the meaning of the word 'comprmise' is.

Omaha has a progressive (Democrat) Congresman. The city is blue. I don’t see much truth or optimism in that statement, other than he’s not quite an extremist.

You can be a BIG government Republican, and still be a good person who loves their country. Some of them reside in the Senate. How’s that working out for us?
