House approves $1.1T bill financing government
Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republicans have muscled a $1.1 trillion bill financing government agencies through the House after President Barack Obama phoned Democratic lawmakers and urged them to back the measure. The House approved the measure late Thursday by 219-206. The compromise bill keeps agencies funded through next September.


Republican Budget Deal Spits in the Face of Voter Anger

The House "compromise" budget in which the Republicans give Democrats everything they want in exchange for reforms that favor Wall Street (which is still virtually the least popular institution in America, not to mention the fact that the majority of Wall Street has been bankrolling the Democrats for the last decade) is a deliberate slap in the face of the sentiment that brought them to power. Literally no one who voted for Republicans did so in order for them to vote to fund the government all the way through virtually half of their term in power just so Dodd-Frank could be tweaked, and Obama's executive amnesty could go forward.

"In 20 years of being on the appropriations [committee], I haven't seen a better compromise in terms of Democratic priorities. Implementing the Affordable Care Act, there's a lot more money for early childhood development - the only priority that got cut was the EPA but we gave them more money than the administration asked for," Moran told reporters Thursday evening after exiting a Democratic caucus meeting in which White House chief of staff Denis McDonough tried to convince members to back the bill.


The Nature of the Scorpion

The Republicans lie and back stab their voters when they win - 2000, 2004, 2010, 2014, and they do it when they lose - 2006, 2008, 2012. They just do it. Like the scorpion, it is their nature. How much longer will it take their robotic voting base to figure that out?


Dems bail out Boehner, help pass cromnibus, 219-206

Update: Obama just sent his chief of staff Denis McDonough to meet with the House Democratic caucus. The White House has gone from reluctant acceptance to cheerleader very, very quickly.

WASHINGTON -- At least Democrats will have eggnog to wash down the poison pills they swallowed on Thursday as the House narrowly passed a government funding bill that will let Congress go home early for Christmas.


In a surprise, House passes spending bill
The Daily KOS

The bill narrowly passed a procedural vote just after noon Thursday, but after going through debate as if a vote was planned, Speaker John Boehner postponed the vote. As the House recessed to regroup, and for hours after, the bill's fate was very much in doubt, with some reports saying Republicans were 80 votes short of passage, and a whipping war breaking out between progressive Democrats opposed to the bill (as long as it included provisions undermining bank regulations) and those who thought it was the best deal Democrats could get. Ultimately, though, with the president making calls and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer speaking in its favor, enough Democrats were swayed in its favor to counterbalance the extremist Republicans opposing it from the right.


With Obama's Help, House Passes Boehner's Amnesty-Funding Cromnibus Bill

President Barack Obama bailed out House Speaker John Boehner on Thursday night. After the House embarrassed Boehner by almost killing his 1,774-page $1.1 trillion cromnibus bill on a purely procedural vote earlier in the day, House Democrats pitched in to provide the votes to pass it.

"My job tonight is to say thank you and Merry Christmas," Boehner said in a rare floor appearance after the measure barely passed the House 219-206 after a day of pure chaos in Congress.


Oh yes constant readers, please DO take a seat. Now comes there part where we stick our schaden-boner in your ear, and fuck some common sense into your skull. So shut up and learn something - pretend for just a few seconds that you are ACTUALLY better than the Goddamned Prog-nazi drones. Roleplay with us for a bit...

We said this would happen before the mid-term election. We mentioned it would happen DURING the mid-term election. We told you it would happen immediately afterwards. We screamed it while all the silly little sheeple were "being pragmatic," "picking the lesser evil," "acting like grown-ups" and dragging the RePubicans, who HATE them, across the finish line - despite their malice and incompetence.

Let's be clear - the Republican party spent all their resources shitting on their voters - not battling their supposed opposition. Each ounce of expended energy during this election was used to hurl every imaginable slur at believers - with a fury reserved ONLY for the people the Neo-Con statists hold in UTTER contempt. No - not the DemonRats fools. Their conservative base. You know... the "Racist-gun-toting-neanderthals" gentry-caste Republicans have to choke back vomit to stand downwind from?

Having witnessed the unbridled train of libel repeatedly during the primary, and bearing witness to direct threats from the likes of "Mitch-the-Axe" - is anyone with a functioning brain-stem ACTUALLY STARTLED by this Shakespearean betrayal? Really? If so, open your damned eyes - which we'll admit, is a hell of a lot easier when one yanks their head free of their rectum.

It's all played out exactly as folks like Bill Quick, Mike Hendrix, Misha, and others, (like US), told you it would. You suicidal, well-intentioned-idiots drug the Republicans into power - and before the traitors can even show up for work, they deliberately make it utterly impossible to do any of the pretty little lies they whispered in your ears. Descriptions less powerful than "treason" and "sabotage" are farcical.

You chumps were used the same way Jugg-Ears played the Prog-tards in 2008 and 2012. You fucked up - you believed a single word a politician told you - or worse, you choked down a shit-sandwhich thinking yourself somehow "rational and mature." No apologies here - we find your outrage and confusion delicious, because you brought it on yourselves.

The entire time you "party-faithful" were slaving away at polling booths, manning phone banks, passing out fliers, (full of deliberate lies), and squandering your hard won cash, these carpetbaggers smiled, rolled their eyes at your naivete, and envisioned the word "RUBE" stenciled on your forehead. Do you know what? They're right.

Betrayal and lies from left to right and top to bottom. But go on.... please tell us again how you're "acting like pragmatic adults." We're listening....


The punchline? Now that Republicans have allowed the Chamber of Commerce's Wetback Tsunami to flood the FUSA, (and paid the bill for Obamacare yet again!), they are going to spend the next two years campaigning against them! (As highlighted Repeated by Bill Quick and others).

Why would these charlatans engage in such a blatant act of unabashed, sham-tastic hypocrisy?

Because constant readers... they think know you're stupid enough to keep voting for them regardless of how much they ruckus you, piss on your beliefs, steal your liberty and destroy your wealth. Like good little battered housewives, you'll suck down the tears, hold some ice on your black-eye, and rock yourself to sleep at night...

"He really loves me... really... he does... he really loves me..."

Fucking pathetic.

Votes absolutely won't repair this lost nation. Supposedly, neither would - hypothetically - shooting the nearest Non-Representing Representative in the face... but then again, folks would have to start somewhere...

Update I - The Big Dogs Bark:

Mike Hendrix, The Dread Emperor Misha, and others finally have their say:
- SAVED! by the GOP
- Party of Submission Submits Again
- Sorry, That's Just Too Much to Expect
- Boehner screws America again
- Here Comes The Ramming
- Cromnibus Designed to 'Eliminate the Tea Party'

Well suckers? Still going to be the gentry-RePubican's bitches? Because anyone casting a ballot for the "Grand Old Party" at this point is just that. A chump-assed-bitch. The moonbats are at least upfront about being tyrannical nimrods. They come right out and TELL YOU they intended to steal every scrap of your liberty. The Neo-Cons don't make their intent known until you turn around and notice the bayonet in your spine.

The Fourth-Box calls.
