Democrats block Keystone pipeline, but GOP vows new fight when it takes over

Senate Democrats blocked a move Tuesday to compel construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, dealing a sharp loss to one of their own, Sen. Mary Landrieu (La.), who had pinned her chances for reelection on approval of the measure.

See how this whole article neglects to mention the total support by the GOP for the pipeline. The article makes it seem like only democratic Senators want the pipeline approved. The GOP gets a free ride away from taking responsibility for pushing the pipeline through with a little Democratic support from Blue dog Democratic Senators.


President Obama: FCC should reclassify internet status to preserve net neutrality

In a huge development for millions of net neutrality advocates, President Obama has issued an unequivocal statement in support of net neutrality, calling on the Federal Communications Commission to reclassify broadband internet access under Title II of the Telecommunciations Act. Here's his video statement:


Incoming Republican Senators Set Out Pro-Corporate Agenda For 114th Congress

Republicans senators, including those already in office and incoming new members, discussed across morning television shows on Sunday what they would like to see done in the 114th Congress.

The suite of issues senators want addressed include a grab-bag of policies sought by the powerful U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which spent more than $35 million to help elect the new GOP majority.

"I would love to see us do something in the area of tax reform," Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) said on CNN's "State of the Union." "I think initially at least, coming out of the gate, things on jobs, trade policy less tax for overseas corporations, subsidies energy policy, energy gives us a very competitive edge, very important to the economy, and that's something that I think the president, I would hope, would sign into law."

Incoming Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.V.) told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace that she hoped the White House could move on the "Keystone pipeline, tax reform, a transportation bill."


How will the GOP govern?

What is their agenda? I have no idea what they plan to do besides to block anything President Obama supports.

Should we not ask them what they plan to do with their new position of power?

Should they not be forced to state their vision clearly?

The Republican Boss Man

The GOP says, We are in charge here!"

We get to decide who votes and which votes are to be counted.

We can spend as much money per election cycle as we can muster together to spread our propaganda, dis-information, and outright lies as we in the GOP would like. All we in the GOP ave to do is the bidding of the rich.

Shut up and obey us. We are your masters!

The GOP is in charge now!


KY Mitch McConnell attempts to suppress Democratic Voters......

The mailer looks official. It has big letters marked WARNING and "ELECTION VIOLATION NOTICE," seemingly designed to make you think you're the one violating something, and warns of a "possible fraud being perpetrated." But when you open it, it turns out to be a mailer from the Kentucky Republican Party and Mitch McConnell's committee warning you of "fraudulent information" being spread by the campaign of his opponent, Alison Grimes.


Mailed in envelopes that blare “ELECTION VIOLATION NOTICE” and state “You are at risk of acting on fraudulent information,” the Kentucky Republican Party issued a letter that accuses Grimes of “blatant lies” about McConnell’s advocacy for a local coal plant and his support from “anti-coal activists like Michael Bloomberg.”

Inside the envelope, you'll find a letter that starts out:

Dear Citizen,
This document serves as notification to you, as a resident of Kentucky and a registered voter in the aforementioned Commonwealth, of fraudulent information that is being deliberately spread to voters in your area.

The information that has been red-flagged as 100% false is being purposely spread by the campaign of the federal candidate named below:

Alison Lundergan Grimes,

... which then launches into a more standard political tirade against Grimes. As Salon's Luke Brinker says, it's "hard to see the mailers as anything but a shameless suppress voter turnout."



Female Democrats are as ugly as sin and cannot win!

At first glance, most progressives would not take Rep. Steve Vaillancourt seriously. However, if we do not take his behavior seriously, we do so at our peril. We can't let let this type of behavior go on unanswered. This gives new meaning to the charge that Republicans are quite prepared to win ugly -- and win at all costs by going negative.

So where is the backlash? Why, Mr and Mrs Progressive America, do we tolerate this type of hatred from the GOP from a guy whose conceit knows no end? In proclaiming himself as a type of defacto self-appointed beauty pageant judge turning a congressional race into his own private circus and theater of the absurd, whereupon he hoists his ageism and sexist pronouncements on us in a clear case where, if these were two male candidates, it wouldn't even be possible to have such a vacuous conversation in a congressional campaign -- where real people have real problems that we can ill afford to have hi-jacked by the GOP election circus agenda.

In a disgraceful showing of ageism and sexism which initially was not repudiated by either State Rep. Marilinda Garcia or the GOP party, both of them initially were prepared to profit from their silence while they were waiting to see what effect this may have (if any) on the latest polling numbers. Having waited and first profited from it for three days, Rep. Garcia finally came out and repudiated Rep. Vaillancourt's remarks as sexist. In doing so, Rep. Garcia, in good GOP form, is a day late and a dollar.


Scott Brown fumbles New Hampshire geography and economy in debate

Man does not know what he is talking about!

How well does Scott Brown know the ten counties of New Hampshire? The former Massachusetts senator is defending his knowledge after appearing not to know what the hell he was talking about when asked about Sullivan County, at the western edge of the state, in a Senate debate Thursday night.

Scott Brown does not even know where the different regions or cities in NH are located.

How can they even take him serious? Scott Brown just wants to be a Senator.


GOTV is going full steam ahead!
