Breaking this morning is news that Chuck Hagel is resigning as Secretary of Defense after some pressure from the Obama administration. This news comes as a shock, as no one was expecting it. Even more shocking is how Drudge, and I'm sure the rest of the right wing media, who for years considered Hagel a "RINO" are starting to embrace him as one of their own again, following this news.
Goes to Steven Kraus, a tea-partier from Ohio. He was indicted on burglary, theft and breaking and entering. This marks the first new indictment of the 114th. We already got some members under indictment, like Michael Grimm. At this rate we could see more scandal than the 109th, which just so happens to be the last time the Republicans controlled both houses of Congress.
The incoming speaker of the Nevada House, Ira Hansen (guess which party) once wrote about "simple minded darkies" and how they show a "lack of gratitude" towards whites.
"Libertarian" Rand Paul helped kill the NSA reform bill yesterday, that would have limited the agencies free-for-all spying on citizens. It just goes to show you that Libertarian isn't really what it means anymore, which is a shame.
Perhaps the chicken should become the mascot of the Democratic Party. After running from their own platform and accomplishments this past cycle, they are hell bent on proving that they care nothing about principal, only polls. The latest act of treason against Democratic principals comes from congressional Democrats and the pending executive action on immigration. Now Democrats want President Obama to wait before taking any executive action. At this point, the Democrats might as well stay in the corner, cowering and capitulating to anything the Republicans want.
Is Twitter! According to a report by CNN, the GOP would use Twitter accounts to skirt election laws and share internal polling data with PACs and other outside groups, which could be coordination, something not allowed by federal election laws.
The Senate Democrats have created a new "liaison" leadership position for Elizabeth Warren. First reaction is that this sounds great, but the cynic in me can't help but wonder if this isn't some sort of lip-service to the progressive base from the stalwarts, like Harry Reid, which holds the job someone like Warren should have gotten.
AT&T is now saying they will cease all expansions of their fiber optics until the issue of net neutrality is settled. Translation: they won't expand high speed internet if they have to play fair. They want to hurt the U.S. economy, unless they get their political will, or better defined as terrorism.
