Unhinged Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Chases Rep. Tom Marino (R-PA) Across House Chamber After He Called Her Out … “They didn’t have the strength to go after it back then.”
Nance Pelosi takes crossing the aisle to the extreme …
Rep. Tom Marino (R-PA) certainly did hit a nerve to say the least when he addressed the House regarding the debate on the border funding bill Friday night. Marino called out former Speaker of the House Nanncy Pelosi why when Democrats had control of the House, Senate and White House they did nothing about the border issue, but now with to make it a political issue. Needless to say, San Fran Nan then did something she never does, she came across the aisle. However, it was to confront Marino. After Pelosi said something to Marino, he responded, “It’s true, madam leader, I did the research on it,” Marino said. “You might want to try it. You might want to try it, madam leader. Do the research on it. Do the research. I did it. That’s one thing that you don’t do.” File this one under, The truth hurts, don’t it.
“You know something that I find quite interesting about the other side? Under the leadership of the former Speaker [Pelosi], and under the leadership of their former leader [Rep. Steny Hoyer], when in 2009 and 2010, they had the House, the Senate and the White House, and they knew this problem existed. They didn’t have the strength to go after it back then. But now are trying to make a political issue out of it now.”
The House then voted to approve the $694 million border supplemental, 223-189.
In an unusual breach of decorum, even for the divided Congress, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi chased Rep. Tom Marino across the House floor, taking offense at comments by the Pennsylvania Republican during debate on the border funding bill Friday night.
“We don’t have law and order,” Marino began as he wrapped up his comments on the border supplemental. “My colleagues on the other side don’t want to do anything about it.”
“You know something that I find quite interesting about the other side? Under the leadership of the former Speaker [Pelosi], and under the leadership of their former leader [Rep. Steny Hoyer], when in 2009 and 2010, they had the House, the Senate and the White House, and they knew this problem existed,” he continued. “They didn’t have the strength to go after it back then. But now are trying to make a political issue out of it now.”
Off-mic, Pelosi then approached Marino, crossing the aisle in view of cameras, and apparently challenged Marino’s assertion that Democrats did not do anything about the issue when they had majority control.
“Yes it is true,” Marino replied directly to Pelosi, who was House speaker in those years. “I did the research on it. You might want to try it. You might want to try it, Madam Leader. Do the research on it. Do the research. I did it. That’s one thing that you don’t do.”
Marino then urged lawmakers to support the border supplemental “because apparently I hit the right nerve.”
Powerline opines, “Before this morning, I regret to say, I was unfamiliar with Tom Marino. Today Marino is my hero.” I have to second that as well!
According to Pelosi spokeswoman Evangeline George, “Leader Pelosi just wanted to remind the Congressman that House Democrats had the courage to pass the DREAM Act – and have the courage to stand up for what the American people want: bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform.”
George added that “Pelosi accepted the Congressman’s apology.”
UPDATE II: Marino’s chief of staff, Bill Tighe, stressed that Marino did not apologize to Pelosi, and will not apologize.
It would appear that Rep. Marino did not apologize to Pelosi and San Fran Nan had more to say than just the “Dream Act”. Marino took to twitter and tweeted that Nancy Pelosi called me an “insignificant person”.
“[Rep. Marino] did not apologize to Leader Pelosi and does not intend to do so as he has nothing to apologize for. She was entirely out of line in approaching him while he was recognized and delivering remarks on the Floor,” Tighe wrote in an email. “Her staff’s comment in your story about her accepting his apology in simply not true.”
Later, Marino took to Twitter to explain his side of the story.

Sarah Palin’s Challenge to the WAPO to Engage in the Same Aggressive Investigative Journalism as They Did with Richard Nixon and Watergate
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin challenges the Washington Post to cover Obama’s proclamation that absolutely no wrongdoing occurred at the IRS, “not even a smidgen,” in the same manner that they did in their tireless and aggressive manner they did President Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal.
Sorry, I am not sure if MSM, integrity and good journalism can be used in the same sentence anymore.
To reclaim your credibility (and the mainstream media’s, at large), I challenge you to engage in the same aggressive investigative journalism you courageously employed 42 years ago covering President Nixon. The public knows of our current president’s incompetence, denials, and cover-ups, but would be well served if we could count on your resources to dig deep for truth in all matters pertaining to Team Obama.
One example: your reporters kept tracking an obscure break-in story and that led to revealing a grave problem in the White House. The Washington Post’s reputation soared as the model of good journalism. Today, you’ve fallen like a lead balloon. Whereas you once doggedly covered the 18.5 minute gap in Nixon’s White House communications, you’ve virtually ignored the Obama Administration’s 1.2 million minutes of deleted communications by just one of the agencies under Obama’s executive branch. I’m speaking of the Lois Lerner IRS harassment-of-conservatives scandal wherein Lerner “lost” pertinent email communications. You’ve allowed Obama to skate with his proclamation that absolutely no wrongdoing occurred at the IRS, “not even a smidgen.”
The list of Obama abuses and impeachable offenses is long. I challenge you to lift a finger and help protect democracy, allow justice for all, and ensure domestic tranquility by doing your job reporting current corrupt events fairly. If not, you prove yourselves incompetent and in bed with Obama, not caring one iota about media integrity.
Those running the Washington Post’s show now, compared to those during the Nixon era, are too afraid of being uninvited to the permanent political class’ cocktail parties and petty gossip fests, making you all a bunch of wusses. I challenge you to get to work.

Hey Rolling Stone … please stick to reporting on music, because this article is nothing short of embarrassing.
Rolling Stone has a list of the top 5 most dangerous guns in America as per By Kristen Gwynne. In other words, basically any gun that actually shoots a bullet or buckshot is dangerous. HUH? Looking at the title one might think that Ms. Gwynne was going to provide us a list of the actual brand name and type of guns that are used in most crimes or murders, rather than providing us a 4th grade essay on “Most dangerous Guns in America for Dummies”. My apologies to 4th graders across the United States. How exactly can all guns be the most dangerous guns in America. As The Truth About Guns opines, “In other words, guns are the most dangerous guns in America. Small ones more than big ones, although really small ones not so much. Well that’s just dumb.” YES IT IS. I cannot even call this media bias. it’s media stupidity.
Rolling Stones list of the 5 most dangerous guns:
You have got to read the article to get a true appreciation of just how far Rolling Stone has fallen and what passes for news in today media. With regards to a revolver: “Some grenade launchers, shotguns, and rifles also have rotating barrels, but the term ‘revolver’ is generally used to describe handguns. Revolver types include single and double-action firing mechanisms, the latter of which does not require a cocking action separate from the trigger pull”. Rifles on the other hand, “were created to improve the accuracy of smoothbore muskets, for which the musket ball was often an bad fit due to manufacturing complications. Accurate and easy-to-aim, rifles are now the most common hunting weapon.” GOOD GRIEF.
Some one might want to tell Rolling Stones that knives, hands, fists, feet, clubs and baseball bats are more dangerous and actually killed four of the five “guns” referenced above. And look here, for 2012, clubs, blunt objects, hands fists and feet all out-pace firearms.
Secretary of State John Kerry Caught on Hot Mic Comment About Israel … “It’s a Hell of a Pinpoint Operation”
Once again the Obama administration treats it’s allies with condemnation … Kerry was for saying it was an Israel hell of a pinpoint operation, before he was against it.
Secretary of State John Kerry was caught on a hot mic during this Sunday morning’s round robin of talk shows with some interesting and blunt remarks as a condemnation of Israeli tactics Kerry said on the open mic, . “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation” not once but twice.”The Washington Post’s reports:
Kerry’s comments are clear. “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation,” he says, then repeats it. “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation.” It’s an apparent reference to Israel’s insistence that its incursion into the region would be limited. “It’s escalating significantly,” the person on the phone replies, and Kerry then says: “We’ve got to get over there. I think we ought to go tonight.” He then calls it “crazy” to be “sitting around.”
Sec. of State Kerry was asked by Chris Wallace on ‘Fox News Sunday’ what he meant by his comments. As reported at Powerline, In an unusual moment during Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace presented Secretary of State John Kerry with video recorded before he came on air and asked Kerry whether he thought that Israel went too far? Let the double talk begin.
“When you said it’s a hell of a pinpoint operation,” Wallace asked, are you “upset that the Israelis are going too far?”
“It’s very difficult in these situations,” Kerry said, repeating that the United States supports Israel’s right to defend itself. He then explained his comments by saying, “I reacted, obviously, in a way that anybody does in respect to young children and civilians.”
UNBELIEVABLE … After 23 Americans Are Killed in Malaysia Flight MH17 Missile Terrorist Attack, Barack Obama Goes Fundraising in NYC … John McCain Says Obama Is AWOL on Ukraine
THERE IS A REASON WHY OBAMA IS CALLED THE “CAMPAIGNER” IN CHIEF …
Good grief, what is wrong with this president, has he no shame? After 23 Americans are believed to have been killed when Malaysia Flight MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur was shot down by a surface to air missile by Russian separatists over Ukraine airspace, Barack Obama attended two fundraisers in New York City. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! How detached could one individual possibly be when Americans civilians are killed by an act of war/terrorism and a sitting president just goes about his merry way and attends a fundraiser? Sorry, but there is something seriously wrong with Obama that anyone would think that it was okay to do so. All Americans should be sickened by his actions.
TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THE PICS OF THE DEATH AND CARNAGE AND COMPARE THAT TO OBAMA GOING OFF TO FUNDRAISERS AS IF NOTHING HAPPENED. SICK, JUST SICK!!!
Sen. John McCain appeared on Hannity last night and said, “I don’t understand this president. The crisis on the border. He did the fundraisers, the fundraisers in New York while they’re major conflicts, not to mention the loss of American lives. It was reported there were Americans on the airplane. I do not understand it … This is just what we used to call in the military A-W-O-L.”
John McCain: Obama Is AWOL on Ukraine
Republicans are assailing President Obama’s decision to attend two fundraisers in New York City Thursday night after 295 people perished when a Malaysian passenger jet crashed in Ukraine after an apparent rocket attack and Israel launched a ground war in Gaza the same day.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus took to Twitter to launch a broadside against Obama for going through with the fundraisers benefiting House and Senate Democrats.
“With all that is going on, the last thing the President should be doing is fundraising right now. Now is a time for leadership,” Priebus tweeted.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., was far harsher in his assessment.
“I don’t understand this president … this is what we used to call in the military A-W-O-L,” McCain told Fox News Thursday night. “… There’s a direct lost of American lives here and the president goes to a fundraiser? Help me out.”
Twenty-three Americans are believed to have died in the crash, although U.S. authorities have yet to confirm those numbers.
Barack Obama is no leader. If he had any respect for the United States of America, he would just step down from office for the sake of America. But that will never happen, because Obama is a “community agitator” and his every action is meant to divide and destroy the America that we knew. Sorry, but Obama would have gone fund raising on 9-12-2001.
Charles Krauthammer on Harry Reid’s Secure Border Comment … “You’ve got to Wonder, Whether He’s really on his Medication or Not.”
Many legal American citizens have the same question …
Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer mocked Democrat Senate Majority Lead Harry Reid yesterday on ‘Special Report’ with regarding to Reid’s comment that the Southern border was secure stating, When you hear Harry Reid saying the border is secure you’ve got to wonder, you know, whether he’s really on his medication or not.”
Well Harry, are you?
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: When you hear Harry Reid saying the border is secure you’ve got to wonder, you know, whether he’s really on his medication or not. I mean, that is so detached from reality. We just saw at the beginning of the show the report from John Roberts — you get how many we have now? 60,000 — at least — kids who come over. And we’re completely helpless. And it’s the helplessness that I think is driving the president and the Democrats to accept. What they want is for the Republicans to be the one who would propose the change in the law because it looks so cruel.
MARA LIASSON: They did.
KRAUTHAMMER: And so the Republicans have played their role in this kabuki. The president will reluctantly accept it even though he talked initially about proposing it but then he got heat from his left which said you can’t propose this. So it will work out. But the president has to have this stopped because it contributes to the story, showing all the other elements abroad and at home that his administration is incompetent, out of control and unable to control anything. And with this continuing he really can’t tolerate that, his numbers will not survive and the party will be roundly thrashed in November and that’s why he’ll acquiesce to the change in the law.
File this one under, ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!
Okay America, who are you going to believe,
Baghdad Bob Harry Reid or your lying eyes? Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said Tuesday that the southern border was secure. Seriously, as a humanitarian crisis occurs on the US-Mexican borders as illegals pour over the borders, Reid says “the border is secure”. What about this illegal child crisis that Democrats are looking to capitalize on, is that the sign of a secure border? How about those 50,000 unaccompanied youths and children who have illegally crossed the Texas border during the last few months? We have a porous southern border that is not just a humanitarian crisis, but a national security one and this lying Democrat leader says, don’t look here, there is nothing to worry about. UNREAL.
However, Reid says he is against the bi-partisan proposed Cornyn-Cuellar bill that would allow unaccompanied minors to make a claim for asylum in the United States before an immigration judge within seven days of receiving a screening from the Department of Health and Human Services.
Of course Reid is against any bill that would remedy the crisis, its all about politics.
VIDEO – Roll Call
The Hill - Reid: Southern border is secure.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Tuesday asserted the southern border is secure despite the massive surge of illegal minors from Central America that has overwhelmed federal agencies.
“The border is secure,” he told reporters after the Senate Democrats’ weekly policy lunch. “[Sen.] Martin Heinrich [(D-N.M.)] talked to the caucus today. He’s a border state senator. He said he can say without any equivocation the border is secure.”
Reid said lawmakers need to worry less about border security and focus instead on President Obama’s $3.7 billion request to help process the tens of thousands of children from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador who have been apprehended on the border.
Senator Dingy Harry is sounding an awful lot like Baghdad Bob did during the days of the War in Iraq when the US military was near the gates of Baghdad. Can anyone tell the difference between the two?

What a Coincidence, Another Hard Drive Crash … This Time It’s April Sands, a Former Employee at the Federal Election Commission who Resigned After Admitting to Violating the Hatch Act Promoting Obama’s Re-election in 2012 .
HMM, ANOTHER CONVENIENT HARD DRIVE CRASH, I AM STARTING TO SENSE A PATTERN … AND LOW AND BEHOLD A LINK TO LOIS LERNER …
Democrat playbook, page 7, paragraph 2, subsections 6: When caught committing a crime and perpetrating a fraud upon the American people, destroy your hard drive.
April Sands was a Federal Election Commission lawyer before she resigned earlier this year and accepted a ban on holding government jobs until 2016. Sands resigned after admitting to violating The Hatch Act, which prohibits government workers from advocating for candidates while on the job. Just curious, is there any government agency that did not violate the Hatch Act and promote Obama’s 2012 reelection? However, Sands escaped prosecution as her computer hard drive “mysteriously” crashed and was recycled by the FEC before any evidence could be recovered. Hmm, haven’t we heard this one before? As former NY Yankee MLB great Yogi Bearra would say, “it’s deja vu all over again”. Can you say Lois Lerner? Funny Lois Lerner’s name is mentioned as Lerner, who has a case of her own missing emails and hard drive crash was Sands’ supervisor until 2001. you just can’t make this stuff up.
Just curious, is there any governmental agency that backs up data?
It’s becoming very evident that the 2012 presidential election may have been the greatest case of voter fraud ever in American history. Sorry, just one too many coincidences.
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on Monday made yet another request to the federal government for details about a crashed hard drive that may have contained information allowing criminal charges to be brought against a federal official.
Issa’s newest letter concerns the hard drive of April Sands, a former employee at the Federal Election Commission who resigned in the spring after admitting to violations of the Hatch Act. That law puts restrictions on the ability of government officials to conduct political activities while on the job, or from government offices.
Issa noted that while Sands admitted to violating the law, the FEC just recently told Congress that it could not recover her hard drive, which made it impossible to seek criminal charges against her.
“Recent information obtained by the committee suggests that the FEC OIG could not pursue criminal prosecution for the misconduct because the attorney’s hard drive had been recycled by the FEC,” Issa’s letter said.
As a result, Issa asked the FEC to provide information to his committee by July 28. That includes all documents related to the hard drive loss, and documents detailing the FEC’s practices for retaining information on computers.
The FEC is an independent agency, but Sands’ emails clearly indicated she favored Obama’s re-election in 2012. Before the election, she tweeted things like:
“Our #POTUS’s birthday is August 4. He’ll be 51. I’m donating at least $51 to give him the best birthday present ever: a second term.” In another tweet, she said anyone supporting Republicans is her “enemy.”
I guess this is just another phony scandal.
UPDATE I: More from Town Hall, It sounds like they have found there to be one too many coincidences as well …. Lerner Associate: “I Don’t Understand How Anyone But Straight White Men Can Vote Republican”
Which brings us to the case of April Sands, an employee at the Federal Elections Commission (FEC), who struck a deal with the agency’s Inspector General to avoid criminal charges related to running afoul of the Hatch Act on numerous occasions. She has openly confessed to breaching federal law as part of her effective plea bargain, but investigators were unable to probe a potential goldmine of incriminating activity: Her email. Why? You guessed it; her hard drive crashed, supposedly wiping out her email records, and resulting in the FEC recycling (i.e., destroying) the hard drive. Sounds familiar. Did I mention that Ms. Sands worked under Lois Lerner when Lerner served as the agency’s Associate General Counsel for Enforcement? Lots of coincidences and similarities, no?
UPDATE II: Interview with Lou Dobbs discussing the amazing coincidences of corrupt government employee hard drive crashes.
Rep. Gutierrez (D-IL) Shames Barack Obama For Not Visiting the Texas-Mexico Border … Is Like Not Visiting Sick Relative While Vacationing Nearby
Or playing golf for that matter … or pool.
OUCH, even Democrats are calling out Barack Obama for the absurdity of the president going to Texas for fundraisers and not visiting the humanitarian crisis on the US-Mexican border that he created. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) shamed Obama on CNN’s Crossfire and compared the president not visiting the Texas border, while fund raising in Texas to ignoring a sick relative in the hospital while vacationing nearby.
“I wish the President of the United States were going down and visiting the children and visiting the site tonight. I kind of think of, you know, if I were on vacation in Puerto Rico and my wife’s aunt was in the hospital and I didn’t go see her, I think her family would probably get together and probably say ‘You made a poor choice.’ It is important that he do that.”
Barack Obama, Too Busy to go to the US-Mexico border in Texas, but can play pool and yuck it up
AG Eric Holder Bashes Sarah Palin on ABC’s ‘This Week’ Says … “She Wasn’t Particularly Good VP Candidate, She’s an Even Worse Judge of Who to Impeach”
Hmm, one might say Eric Holder isn’t a particularly good Attorney General and an even worse judge of what scandals should be prosecuted …
Eric Holder, Barack Obama’s attorney general took to ABC’s ‘This Week’ to bash Sarah Palin stating, “She wasn’t a particularly good vice presidential candidate. She’s an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why.” Really? With all the scandals that Holder could be prosecuting and getting to the bottom of, he is bashing Palin? Where is Holder on Benghazi-gate, Fast & Furious and IRS-gate? Where is Eric Holder in enforcing US immigration laws? HOLDER IS AWOL. Holder is the most political, partisan attorney general ever. This political hack will do nothing to investigate an out of control Obama administration because his allegiances lie with Obama, not America and the US Constitution. While we are at it, Eric Holder should be impeached as well. Make it a two-fer.
Administration efforts to pass comprehensive immigration reform, for example, have failed. Asked about calls by Sarah Palin to impeach Obama over the administration’s immigration policies, Holder said: “She wasn’t a particularly good vice presidential candidate. She’s an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why.”
Holder similarly dismissed calls for himself to be impeached for declining to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS scandal. Holder insisted that a special prosecutor isn’t necessary, with “career people” and FBI agents “doing a good, professional job” investigating the matter.
As per Breitbart, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and other senior “establishment” Republicans have dismissed Palin’s calls and instead have opted to file a lawsuit against Obama’s executive overreach. Also, House Judiciary Committee chair Rep. Bob Goodlatte, (R-VA), said on “This Week” that he won’t push for the impeachment of President Obama, despite recent calls by some Republicans. Of course the GOP won’t, they are gutless.
“We are not working on or drawing up articles of impeachment,” Goodlatte told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on “This Week” Sunday. “The Constitution is very clear as to what constitutes grounds for impeachment of the President of the United States. He has not committed the kind of criminal acts that call for that.”
Eric Holder is hardly a credible source to talk about a poor candidate for a job or being able to judge anyone. Holder has been a disaster as AG.
Rep. Gowdy Questions AG Holder About Duty to Faithfully Execute the Law
