Pelosi & Schumer — Two Peaheads In A Pod

China National Offshore Oil Corporation

15.1 billion smackers.  Reportedly, China’s national oil agency (CNOOC) is willing to cut a deal with Canada for a real puddle of oil for 15.1 billion dollars (US).  Lovely.

Now Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) have a dump in their diapers and want to change the course for which they previously fought.

This story comes from Breitbart and  reporter Wynton Hall

In a draft letter to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), Sen. Schumer writes:

I respectfully urge you, in your capacity as chairman of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), to withhold approval of this transaction to ensure U.S. companies reciprocal treatment.

Similarly, Rep. Pelosi is now sounding alarms of concern.  In a statement, Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hamill said:

This deal prompts great concern about the Chinese government’s continued attempts to use its state-owned enterprises to acquire global energy resources.

I probably don’t have to tell you, but there be empty-headed idiots among us. We just mentioned two, but we could start with the majority of the democrats in our national legislature and shuck the denseness from the ears of understanding and we wouldn’t get a bushel of knowledge from the entire progressive field. The piece continues:

Saying “I told you so” offers little solace to concerned Republican lawmakers.

“Do we really want to be buying our oil or Canadian oil back from the Chinese?” said Sen. John Hoeven (R-ND). “If we don’t take action to develop our resources and work with our closest friend and ally Canada, that’s exactly what’s going to happen.

Pelosi: Regressing To Babyhood?

Recently Madame Pelosi, former Speaker of the US House of Representatives and a California progressive, was interviewed by Al Hunt of Bloomberg News.  I’m not sure of the location of the interview, but judging by Madame’s performance during the episode, it could have been someplace which allowed the oxygen to be extracted from the poor soul’s essential faculties.  To say she was mistakenly in error, and didn’t know the truth about one essential fact of which she should have certain knowledge, would be to assume she didn’t know she was spouting lies, and that ol’ dog won’t hunt. .

During the interview, Pelosi implied, the current president has visited Israel, “over and over again.”  It is a known fact Obama has not visited Israel since becoming president, and Pelosi knows, or certainly should know, she lied when she said differently.  Of course, Mr. Hunt did not call her on her false information and conservatives have no expectation he would do so.  There are however, attentive  reporters and bloggers who caught the gaffe and understand how important it is to keep the record straight on the habitual misstatements the Democratic machine spews forth.

Just below you will find a transcript with incomplete information and more than a few disconnected or disjointed statements attributed to Pelosi.  Whether her thoughts show as incomplete because they WERE incomplete or because Bloomberg can’t keep up with their editing is unknown. In any case, after the first link, you will find link to a link to an article and a video connected to Ms. Pelosi’s foolishness:

Bloomberg Incomplete Transcript

President Has Visited Israel Over & Over NOT

How about this, if you missed it in the Bloomberg “transcript.”  Another ignorant denigrating quote by the Ex-Speaker:

PELOSI: Well, that’s how they’re being exploited. And they’re smart people.

The above was muttered by Pelosi in reference to Jewish people.  Can you imagine what the main-scream media would do if a conservative said the same words about the same proud segment of our Nation’s citizens .  Sure you can imagine … actually we all know.

Shouting: You Didn’t Build That


Obama’s infamous last words covered again:

Dear Leader has to be wondering why he ever said; as he says, “I’ve said boneheaded things.”

Be More Chicken OR Eat More Chicken


Be more chicken like Thomas Menino (Mayor of Boston) and Rahm Emanuel (Mayor of Chicago). The two who want to uphold the rights of those with alternative lifestyles (that’s fine) while tearing down and trashing independent business owners who express their spiritual beliefs about traditional marriage.

Especially in the case of Mr. Emanuel, who welcomes Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam in the United States, to the streets of Chicago. The Nation of Islam and other Muslims leaders across the world have openly preached against homosexuals and gay marriage.  Additionally, Emanuel and other democrat leaders have not seen fit  to criticize Farrakhan and some other leaders in the Muslim faith, when they have issued edicts regarding their stated beliefs that Jews are animals responsible for slavery and other ills of the Black and Muslim communities.

Mr. Emanuel claims himself a Jew.  If he is,  how does he reconcile turning the other “street,” over to hose who denigrate Jews.  How does he divide up his support for Louis Farrakhan, who decries homosexual marriage (and Jews) against his shunning of a business man who believes in the Biblical tenets of marriage and who stated no hate or despicable opinions of homosexuals when he expressed his beliefs.

Pray tell,, Mr. Mayor.  Do you gain your courage by getting it wrong when it comes to what the CEO of Chick-Fil-A actually said.  Throw businesses and jobs out of Chicago for reasons only you and your progressive friends can puzzle out.

Where’s the nearest Chick-fil-A?  Having never tasted their fare, I’m ready to  …  “Eat Mor Chik’n.”

Parenting, Homeschooling and The UN — Bad Mix

A United Nations (UN) treaty proposal has homeschooling parents protesting the treaty as a usurpation of their rights as parents to educate their special needs children in a way that will serve their children far better than any government program. If you are the parent, guardian or other relative of such a child or children, then you might want to keep up with this issue as it wends through our legislative process.  Check below for more information::

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities is a treaty that many believe “surrenders U.S. sovereignty to unelected UN bureaucrats and will threaten parental control over children with disabilities.”

According to The Hillthe Senate Foreign Relations Committee was scheduled to hold the markup for the treaty on Thursday, but after hearing these legitimate complaints, South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint (R) delayed consideration of the treaty for another week.

So, according to the above, there is concern.  But as the story continues, we find there is support on both sides of the aisle. Read on:

“Parts of this treaty deals with abortion and the rights of children, issues that should be addressed by states, local governments and American parents not international bureaucrats,” DeMint spokesman Wesley Denton told The Hill. “Senator DeMint strongly opposes this treaty, as the United States is already the world leader in addressing the needs of the disabled and it’s foolish to think Americans need to sign away our sovereignty to exert our influence around the world.”

The Hill reports the the treaty has bipartisan support in the Senate, with Republicans like Sens. John Barrasso (R-WY) and John McCain (R-AZ) in support along with Democrats like Sen. John Kerry (D-MA). They argue that the treaty would extend protections of the Americans with Disabilities Act abroad.

McCain and others like him, seem always willing to pass our rights to others less able to protect us. Hardly anything the UN proposes has our best interests as a goal. All one has to do to find the truth in the foregoing statement is to look at the compositions of the human rights commission and similar commissions to see that the foxes are watching the chicken coops. Opponents are saying our rights are being deteriorated … not enhanced.

“If the Senate ratifies this treaty, it would be the first time ever that the U.S. has ratified a treaty that obligates us to recognize economic, social, and cultural entitlements as rights under domestic law,” The Home School Legal Defense Association wrote.

Santorum — and his wife Karen — expressed similar concerns about how the treaty would empower unelected international bureaucrats.

“The [UN treaty] would usurp the rights and powers of parents here in the United States to do what is best for their special needs child by placing the law of the UN above the rights of the parents,” Rick and Karen Santorum said in a statement. “It is the job of our elected representatives to preserve these rights, not hand them off to unaccountable international bureaucrats.”
