Steven Crowder provides quite the history lesson, starting in 1961 when Detroit elected its first liberal mayor and never looked back. To a logical and rational eye, it should be very obvious what happened to De'Troit after nearly 50 years of leftwing leadership but alas, liberals also have short memories and attention spans. It's hard enough to get liberals to admit they're wrong after 5 minutes, let alone 50 years.

In fact, 50 years provides just enough room for the sufficient amount of revisionist history needed to elect.........another liberal.

If not THE most corrupt senator in the U.S. Senate, Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd (D) is the runner-up. How is he held accountable? Well, he's awarded $100 million of taxpayer money in the Senate version of the health care bill. Instead of doing time for his role in the Fannie & Freddie debacle, Chris Dodd gets tens of millions more of federal dollars for his state.

Congratulations, America. Welcome to the fruits of apathy.
WASHINGTON (AP) - A $100 million item for construction of a university hospital was inserted in the Senate health care bill at the request of Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., who faces a difficult re-election campaign, his office said Sunday night.
The legislation leaves it up to the Health and Human Services Department to decide where the money should be spent, although spokesman Bryan DeAngelis said Dodd hopes to claim it for the University of Connecticut.

The provision is included in a 383-page series of changes to the health care bill that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., outlined Saturday. Scattered throughout are numerous items sought by individual lawmakers, many of them directing money explicitly to programs or projects in their home states.
HERE is the entire story.


From the same guys who crashed Allegory's book signing in Chicago a couple of weeks ago. The upside? The group, called 'We Are Change Chicago' identifies an extremely curious coincidence. On December 8th, 2008, one day before his arrest, Blago publicly threatened Bank of America that the state of Illinois would cease doing business with them any longer because of how they were mis-using federal bailout dollars. Did that have anything to do with the arrest?

Interesting find and worth looking into.

The downside? These guys at WACC seem to be a little too chummy with Blago who, whether they're right or not about the BOA connection, is no saint. I also found myself rolling my eyes as this crew then whipped out the Truther crusade, hoping to find a new advocate in Blago - as if he's going to be able to do anything about that.

Then, as a parting shot, the last guy solicits Blago's support for Climategate. Easy guys. Blago can only do so much.



The deals granted to both Ben Nelson and Mary Landrieu smack of criminality, both in the U.S. Legal code and the Constitution. Unfortunately, running roughshod over the Constitution has become a new sport apparently. First off, the Constitution. There are two Articles that have been blatantly violated without consequence.

Article I, Section 9 (Limits of Congress), Part 6:
No Preference shall be given by any Regulation of Commerce or Revenue to the Ports of one State over those of another: nor shall Vessels bound to, or from, one State, be obliged to enter, clear, or pay Duties in another.
Article IV, Section 2:
The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States.
Keep in mind that taxpayers in 49 states will be subsidizing both Louisiana and Nebraska. LINK to U.S. Constitution.

Now, onto the U.S. legal code. BIG GOVERNMENT has more on this. It is beyond debate in my view that the law has been broken. The issue now becomes who in power is going to enforce it?

Bribery of Public Officials -


The American people will be getting something they have loudly said they don't want, disguised as a Christmas present. At 1am on Monday morning, the 21st, 60 Senators (58 Democrats, 1 Liberal Independent, and 1 Independent Socialist) successfully voted to cut off debate and send the latest version of Obamacare to the floor for a vote, which will almost certainly take place at 7pm on Christmas eve.

A Christmas eve vote? Why is that so important? It has the feel of an additional (and unnecessary) smack in the face to the American people. As bad as Harry Reid is, he's not from Chicago and these are Chicago-style politics. Notice how Reid has become the face that is being demonized by the American public while Obama remains detached and smiling?

Byron York at the Washington Examiner explains why Reid needed the 1am cloture vote to get that Christmas eve vote:
This is how it works. Reid introduced his amendment Saturday morning. (It's the one that has the Sen. Ben Nelson Medicaid buy-off and other curious features.) Senate rules say there has to be an intervening day between the introduction of the amendment and a vote on limiting debate on the amendment. That intervening day was Sunday. That meant the cloture vote could be held Monday, or any time thereafter. The rules also say that the vote has to be held at least one hour after that next day has begun. So the Senate's Monday business began at 12:01 a.m., and the Reid Amendment vote could be held at 1:01 a.m. (As it happened, Reid himself spoke last, and his remarks went over the mark by six minutes.)

After the middle-of-the-night vote, there will be a maximum of 30 hours debate on the amendment. Then there will be a 30-hour period for a Republican substitute bill, followed by a 30-hour period on the final bill. Reid's schedule calls for a final, final vote on the health care measure to take place at about 7 p.m. on Christmas Eve. Voila! The bill will be passed by Christmas. That couldn't be done unless the Reid Amendment cloture vote were held in the earliest hours of Monday morning, setting off the final chain of votes and waiting periods. "This is purely to satisfy a self-imposed, arbitrary deadline," says the GOP aide.
