Conservatives Tarnish Their Brand Further By Putting Duck Dynasty Clown On Stage At CPAC

The American conservative movement has devolved into self-parody. That was clearly evident on Friday, when Duck Dynasty reality TV star, Phil Robertson, was handed a microphone and given a prominent speaking slot on stage at the CPAC convention. Robertson, is the recent recipient of the ironic, but not meant to be, “Andrew Breitbart Defender of the First Amendment Award”. On Friday, he launched into a rambling sermon. The speech could have been a Saturday Night Live skit, mocking a stereotypical right-wing religious conservative, by using exaggerated rhetoric. But, of course, Robertson wasn’t joking. He meant every word he said.

#AmericanTaliban   #ChristoFascism   #CPAC  
In his long speech, Robertson warned that America was becoming sick from STDs and that wherever Jesus is missing, murder follows.

Republican Congressman Peter King Slams Self-Righteous Delusional Wing Of His Party

Appearing on Luke Russert’s online MSNBC TV program, Shift, New York Congressman Peter King (R) slammed fellow House Republicans for not simply banding together to pass a clean funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security. King made it clear that he was fed up with Tea Party Republicans playing politics with Homeland Security funding. The New York Congressman declared: ”This madness has to end soon…I’ve had it with this self-righteous, delusional wing of the party.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren Obliterates Scott Walker With Just One Sentence

If Scott Walker sees 100,000 teachers & firefighters as his enemies, maybe it's time we take a closer look at his friends. +Elizabeth Warren 
Sen. Elizabeth Warren needed just one sentence to lay waste to the hopes of the union buster turned Republican Great White Hope for 2016 Scott Walker.

Politico reported, “Boehner’s allies are concerned after Friday’s setback that his critics inside the Republican Conference may try to oust him as speaker if — as expected — he puts a long-term DHS funding bill on the House floor next week. While Boehner shrugs off such speculation, close friends believe such a move is a real possibility.”
A group of House Republicans hate President Obama so much that there is a very real possibility that they overthrow John Boehner if he allows a vote on the Senate passed clean funding bill for Homeland Security.

Boehner’s Pathetic House Can Only Pass A One Week Funding Bill For Homeland Security

In a display of failed Republican leadership, John Boehner and House Republicans could only pass a one week funding bill for Homeland Security.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker Wants To Eliminate Reporting Requirements For Campus Rapes

Tucked away in Republican Governor Scott Walker’s proposed budget, is a clause that has nothing to do with campus funding. Yes, the proposed budget cuts 30 million dollars from the public university system. But beyond the Governor’s war on education, he is also intensifying the war on women, by proposing the elimination of rape reporting requirements on campus.
Walker has proposed a budget which says that campus rape isn't such a big deal that a witness should be required to report it.

Rudy Giuliani, The Crazy Uncle Face Of The New Republican Party

It would be nice if Rudy Giuliani were an anomaly within the Republican Party, kind of like the crazy uncle the family keeps chained in the basement, feeding him scraps every so often. Patting him on the head when he cleans up his mess in the corner.
Seems like every time you turn around these days there's another crazy Republican uncle doing and saying the kind of things crazy Republican uncles do.

GOP Lunacy In Criticizing Obama’s ISIS Strategy At CPAC

It never ceases to amaze how Republicans and conservatives who create obviously epic disasters have all the answers, and mountains of criticism, for President Obama in his effort to clean up their messes. They are still assailing Obama for a deficit Republicans piled up with two unfunded wars and tax cuts for the rich regardless the President’s herculean efforts to save the economy and successfully reduced the deficit they created. Now they are lining up at the annual Aryan-sponsored conservative conclave to accuse the President of all manner of malfeasance in cleaning up and dealing with George W. Bush’s religious crusade in Iraq that engendered the rise of Islamic extremists known as the Islamic State (IS, ISIS, ISIL).

Bernie Sanders Tears Into House Republicans For Passing One Week DHS Funding Bill

The one week funding bill is an embarrassment that Republicans should be ashamed of. Friday’s fiasco in the House provided clear evidence that Republicans can’t govern. When left on their own, House Republicans can only agree on extremist legislation that will never become law.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has some pointed words for House Republicans. Sanders told them that it was time to stop playing political games. and found it incomprehensible that the House is refusing to properly fund Homeland Security.

That's our Looney Tunes GOP Congress. Funny. They try to criticize President Obama.....imply he is the worst president ever. Truth is a funny thing. President Obama is easily top 5 Presidents of all time... (he's number one to me)......and this is the worst House ever. ...followed by the previous House. ...followed by the one before that. Face it Mr. Boehner Historically you will always be Lex Luther to the President's Superman.

Richard Mack, Founder of CSPOA Wants You to Pay His Health Care Bills

He was one of those “sovereign citizens” who claimed that making healthcare affordable and accessible is tyranny. He didn’t merely oppose Obamacare, Mack was an active opponent.

#Obamacare #BundyRanch  #SovereignCitizens #AntiGovtWingnuts
Remember Richard Mack, the guy who defended welfare rancher Cliven Bundy? He's also the founder of The Constitutonal Sherrifs and Peace Officers Assocation. Now he is uninsured, has a stack of healthcare bills and wants you to pay them.

If he doesn't want to pay what he owes, but a lien on everything he owes. Of course he'll claim that the evil gummit set him up.

John Boehner Humiliated As House Republicans Defeat His Bill To Keep Homeland Security Open

The final vote was 202-224. Twelve Democrats voted yes, and 51 Republicans voted no.

#DHS
In a crushing defeat for John Boehner, his own House Republicans defeated the Speaker's bill, and jeopardized national security by voting against a three week funding bill for Homeland Security.

Real Liberal Politics...No Corporate Money...No Corporate Masters
Introduction

PoliticusUSA was founded in February of 2008 by Jason Easley. Jason had a vision of a liberal and independent news site which would offer a mix politics and opinion in an unfiltered environment, not beholden to any specific political or media agenda. PoliticusUSA is by design accessible to all levels of readers. Whether you are a casual follower of current events or a policy wonk, there is something here at PoliticusUSA for you.

“If by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal,” then I’m proud to say I’m a Liberal.” ~J.F.K. 

In other words, if you are to the left of Ayn Rand Tea Party Social Darwinism, if you think we have some responsibility for the poor, the elderly, the veterans, the disabled, and the vulnerable in society, welcome to PoliticusUSA.
