Mike Lee and Ted Cruz respond to Harry Reid’s name calling on the Senate floor (video)

Harry Reid not only violated Senate rules in his tirade. What Harry Reid tried to do that generated the floor objection of Ted Cruz is also very worthy of noting. What Reid tried to do was have the right to add language in the bill that was not voted on in the Senate in secret.

That is correct, the Senate leadership since 2006 has been legislating behind closed doors in secret during the conference process. The House under Nancy Pelosi was doing that until the Republicans took back the House. Please see our editor’s note below.

When called out by Senator Cruz on trying to use such a dirty trick against the American people, Harry Reid went on a name calling tirade.

Senator Ted Cruz:

Senator Mike Lee:

Editor’s Note: The videos below are from 2009. The Democrats inserted language in a bill (during conference in secret) to make it legal to give bonuses to the AIG execs who we were bailing out. Those execs were big donors to Democrat Senator Chris Dodd. After lying about it, Dodd and the Democrats finally confessed at what they had done:

Science Fiction is the last playground of the philosophers – Gene Roddenberry (video)

We have said many times here at Political Arena that just quoting people facts and Lincoln-Douglass style debate isn’t enough. In order to teach the great lessons of life and deeper wisdom, it must be done through stories and narratives.

Star Trek is one of the very best programs that demonstrates this truth. Several of the Greek philosophers, plays, and literature have their work retold in Star Trek. The Roman legal philosopher and rhetorician Cicero is featured throughout the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine shows. William Shakespeare also is well represented in Star Trek.

To the intellectually dim Star Trek is just “space invaders” with actors, but to those with eyes to see and ears to hear, to the intellectually and philosophically curious, Star Trek becomes a wondrous teaching tool that can be used to reinforce the ideals that America was founded upon.

Here is an example:
Star Trek: Samuel T. Cogley Attorney at Law

Star Trek: The Wisdom of Captain Jean Luc Picard

Another reason why Star Trek works as a story telling medium is that the people of Star Trek are exploring the final frontier. Americans are a frontier people who have run out of “frontier”.

Establishment GOP Pinheads “blame the voters”…..

I am sure readers have heard by now that Mitt Romney is blaming the 47% who is “on the take” and “isn’t paying taxes”.

Political Arena contributor Warren Roche put together this brilliant and entertaining montage, “Where is the love?”:

While it was impolitic for Mitt to include veterans and retirees in that number there is some truth to it, but in saying it they way he did left him open to be demagogued and attacked as hating retires, the disabled and veterans.

How many times will Republicans get whacked in the “battle of the narratives” before they learn? Or is the current crew in charge so used to fooling themselves that they have to be swept out for the party to have a chance in future elections?

At least some people get it:

I just think it’s nuts. First of all it is insulting. It is like WalMart after a bad week saying “The customers are being unruly”. – Newt Gingrich

“You have a political problem when the voters don’t like you, but you have a real problem when the voters feel like you don’t like them”. – George Will

Governor Bobby Jindal:

Yours truly had this to say a few days ago in Facebook Notes:

Much of the blue collar in this country used to be solidly in the Republican corner, but they feel like they have been lied to and taken for granted. Since the 2003 Bush tax cuts there have been ZERO domestic policy victories for this group of voters. That is why they are disillusioned and believe that no matter who they vote for government will just gets bigger, the economy will just get smaller while jobs dry up and flee the country. They feel squeezed and while they know that the Democrats are bad, they no longer have confidence in the Republican party. That is why these voters are staying home.

What isn’t helping is Republicans with an entitlement mentality who actually have the nerve to believe that just because the Democrat in power is a failed neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky radical that the man they cram down our throats is entitled to the blue collar conservative vote, and when they don’t get it they call them imbeciles.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz gets it as well and comments on why so many blue collar Republicans stayed home again:

Senator Marco Rubio:

Must See: War Correspondent Lara Logan Slams Obama Admin For Pushing “Major Lie” That Taliban/Al-Qaeda Are Washed Up (video)

This is very educational and important, a must see.

Logan: Our way of life is under attack. I chose this subject because, one, I can’t stand that there is a major lie being propagated,” Logan said about the administration touting the weakening of the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Rep Gowdy Goes Ballistic on Ambassador Rice and Obama Administration over Lies About Benghazi Murders (videos)

Not only were our guys murdered, they were raped and sodomized. The Obama Administration doesn’t like American mercenary companies so some of the bodyguards hired were Libyans. It was those body guards who gave up the locations of our peoples secret safe house. Be sure to see our previous post : Everything you need to know about how Obama lied about the embassy attacks in two minutes (video) – LINK

Obama Administration Reverses on Jerusalem Being Capital of Israel

We saw the first part of this video of Jay Carney as it went viral on the net, but stay tuned and watch what comes next from the State Department in the form of Spokesman Victoria Nuland on March 29, 2012. We apologize for totally missing this when it happened. It got very little coverage.

In A World Where Marriage Is Redefined Religious Freedom Does Not Survive (video)

This will probably have to go to the US Supreme Court. The First Amendment is clear on this and so is federal case law. One of the problems with State Judges is that many of them are appointed because they made contributions and thus they are political hacks, not legal minds. The 14th Amendment binds the Bill of Rights to the states. Every lawyer knows this, but so far these judges in New Mexico just don’t care.

Palestinian Kids TV: Christians and Jews are “inferior” and “despised”, “Satan with a tail” (video)


Palestinian Authority TV chose to rebroadcast a program featuring a little girl reciting a hate poem targeting Jews and Christians as “inferior and smaller, more cowardly and despised.” It was broadcast in May and again this month. Click to view.

In addition, Palestinian Media Watchreported last month that in April, PA TV broadcast a young girl reciting a poem that included the words: “Our enemy, Zion, is Satan with a tail.” One month later, PA TV broadcast an even younger girl reciting the poem with the same hate speech, adding that the child had already recited it at the opening of a Palestinian exhibition of educational tools.

Tucker runs the Health Insurance Tips Blog and has the issues in ObamaCare mapped out as well as anyone possibly can. This speech is invaluable education for those wishing to learn.

[Editor’s Note: Yours truly, the editor of this web site, went to Indiana insurance school and has had a state issued licence to be an agent. I have been out of the business for several years and while and I am no longer the expert that Tucker is, I can tell you with certainty that what Tucker says in this video is true and matches my own findings that I wrote about way back on my old college blog.]
