Obstructionist Democrats may help hand a super majority to Republicans either during the Mid Term elections in 2018 or in 2020. Of course this assumes that the President Elect will keep his campaign promises, especially to bring jobs back to the U.S and repeal and replace the horrid Obamacare fiasco. With many more Democrat Senate Seats being up for re-election in just two years, there is an excellent chance that the GOP will pick up several more seats in the Senate, especially if their party is viewed as obstructionist by independents and moderate democrats. Some of these seats will be from states which turned RED during the 2016 election.
Whether he wants to vocalize it or not, this fact will weigh heavily on Chuck Schumer (D-NY) the new Senate Minority leader who takes that role in 2017. Just be sure to separate the sound bites and leftist rhetoric from him, from the reality of negotiating behind the scenes with the incoming administration and those democrats that will up for Senate re-election. THE SHOE IS NOW ON THE OTHER FOOT and that FOOT is wearing a sharpened cleated boot! The chickens have come home to roost!
How many seats does it take to hold a Super Majority in the U.S. Senate?
- In theory 67 out of the 100 seats. Remember however that the Vice President has the tie breaking vote.
When is a Super Majority needed in the US Senate?
- To override a Presidential Veto (2/3 majority in both the House and the Senate — Article 1, Section 7)
- Ratify a treaty (2/3 majority in the Senate — Article 2, Section 2)
- Passing of a Constitutional Amendment by Congress (2/3 majority in both the House and the Senate — Article 5)
Win or lose, the political landscape will never be the same after this election. Both parties are fractured. Trump may have set the table for a significant 3rd party emergence in the U.S. pulling from Moderate Democrats and an out of touch Republican party. An “America Party” neither beholding to Democrats or Republicans? Given the changing landscape of both fund raising and communication via social media, the possibility is not just fantasy. Democrats are clearly not Democratic and Republicans have lost their way in representing the Republic. Has Donald J. Trump, win or lose, succeeded in demonstrating the viability of a real 3rd party option, potentially much stronger than any Libertarian, Green, Socialist and “Independent” party ticket going forward? An Americas Party for all Americans?
While Donald Trump is on a steep learning curve when it comes to dealing with the political media and being more careful about what he says in public, Hillary on the other hand now has a bigger problem. How to keep former employees and secret service from not spilling the beans on her own caustic, uppity personality. Ironically I am re-posting this compilation from the NJ Tea Party because I have personally heard this same type of comment from NYPD police officers I know who have been on security details with her Secret Service detachment when she was First Lady visitng NYC. Marine One pilots secretly used the call sign “Broomstick One” amongst themselves whenever she was on the chopper without Bill…. There is a whole lot more that will be coming out from retired employees who personally experienced her rantings I’m sure. Certainly the media has a target rich environment this election cycle. — ZZ

To All of our Friends and Supporters,
Recently, Hillary Clinton made the rounds of (MainStreamMedia) news programs while lambasting Donald Trump’s “temperament.” Unfortunately, what is NOT reported – but what most ‘insiders’ know – is Hillary’s character has included a decades-long series of meltdowns and tirades against the ‘little’ people who work for, with and around her. Thanks to my college friend ‘jrod’ for compiling this list of quotes from the CIA, FBI and Secret Service. Page numbers are referenced to make any fact finding mission easier.
HRC: IN HER OWN #$%&*WORDS:
(1) “Where is the Goddamn flag? I want the Goddamn f-ing flag up every morning at f-king sunrise”. Hillary to staff at the Arkansas Governor’s mansion on Labor Day 1991. – From the book Inside the White House by Ronald Kessler, p. 244
off! It’s enough I have to see you sh*t-kickers
every day! I’m not going to talk to you, too! Just do your Goddamn job and keep your mouth shut.” Hillary to her State Trooper bodyguards after one of them greeted her with “Good Morning.” – From the book America Evita by Christopher Anderson, p.90(3) “If you want to remain on this detail, get your f-ing
ass over here and grab those bags!” Hillary to a Secret Service Agent who was reluctant to carry her luggage because he wanted to keep his hands free in case of an incident. – From the book The First Partner p. 259(4) “Stay the f–k
back, stay the f–k back away from me! Don’t come within ten yards of me, or else! Just f-ing
do as I say, Okay?!!” Hillary screaming at her Secret Service detail. – From the book Unlimited Access by Clinton’s FBI Agent-in-Charge, Gary Aldridge, p. 139(5) “Where’s the miserable c–k
sucker?” (otherwise known as William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton) Hillary shouting at a Secret Service officer. – From the book The Truth about Hillary by Edward Klein, p. 5(6) “You f-king
idiot” Hillary to a State Trooper who was driving her to an event. – From the book Crossfire ~pg. 84(7) “Put this on the ground! I left my sunglasses in the limo. I need those f-ing
sunglasses! We need to go back! Hillary to Marine One helicopter pilot to turn back while in route to Air Force One. – From the book Dereliction of Duty p. 71-72(8) “Come on Bill, put your d–k
up. Clinton when she spots him talking with an attractive female. -From the book Inside the White House by Ronald Kessler, p. 243Additionally, when she walked around the White House, NO ONE was permitted to look her in the eye, they all had to lower their heads with their eyes towards the ground whenever she walked by.This ill-tempered, violent, loud-mouth, hateful and abusive b—h wants to be your next President and have total control as Commander in Chief of your Military, the very Military for which she has shown incredible disrespect and disdain throughout her public life .
Remember her most vile comment about Benghazi: “what difference at this point does it make?” and it’s pretty obvious why the crew of “Marine One” helicopter nick-named the craft, “Broomstick ONE”!
The Bill and Hillary (and Chelsea) Clinton business dealings could very well yet be shown to be nothing more than R.I.C.O. crimes: Passed in 1970, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) is a federal law designed to combat organized crime in the United States. It allows prosecution ….. for racketeering activity performed as part of an ongoing criminal enterprise.
“Follow the money.” That phrase, which summarized the Watergate scandal, has become shorthand for political corruption: At what point do “contributions” become bribes, “constituent services” turn into quid pro quos, “charities” become slush funds and paid speeches become a wink and a nod for future promise of influence buying?
In essence, Hillary Clinton and the DNC each wants us to believe that lobbyists and SuperPACs don’t expect anything from them in return for their money. This is the most basic, foolish, offensive lie they could ever tell. Of course they want something in return. That’s the business they’re in.

On April 18, 2016, Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign wrote an open letter declaring that Clinton’s campaign was violating campaign finance laws through an unethical joint arrangement with the DNC. The Clinton campaign’s response was that she was actually raising money for down-ticket Democrats. Two weeks later, though, Politico released an amazing investigative report which found that out of the $61 million the Clinton campaign was raising for state parties, the parties were only allowed to keep 1% of it. You read that correctly. They got to keep one percent of the funds she claimed she raised for them. http://tinyurl.com/jkadzfu
Hillary Clinton’s judgement and email scandal(s)
Three respected jurists have opined that Hillary Clinton – in all likelihood – committed crimes relating to her emails.
1. Former AG – under George W. Bush – Michael Mukasey argued that Clinton may have broken laws that say “you can’t put classified information in an unclassified setting.”
? you can’t expose national secrets through gross negligence. (Romanian national – and hacker – Guccifer, aka, Marcel Lazar Lehel has said “For me…for everybody…it was easy.” http://tinyurl.com/j8swjjw Russia was monitoring Guccifer after he tried to hack their system. When they realized that he opened the door to the secretary of state’s rogue (unprotected) server, they hacked at least 20,000 of her emails. This could be devastating if they release them prior to the election (or her indictment, whichever comes first) http://tinyurl.com/zyfhf8p
? you can’t destroy government information.
? you can’t obstruct justice.”
2. Judge Jeanine Pirro: “You’re darn right she should get jailed.” http://tinyurl.com/jkm3xfk
. Judge Andrew Napolitano has stated that any Clinton lie and any materially misleading statement — and she is prone to both — made to the FBI can form the basis for an independent criminal charge against her. http://tinyurl.com/zz2m3g
In an extraordinary rebuke of the Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (Wis.), the nation’s highest-ranking GOP official, said Thursday that he could not support Donald Trump until he changes his tone and demonstrates that he shares the party’s values.
While acknowledging that Trump has mobilized a powerful grass-roots movement and earned the nomination, Ryan said that Trump has not shown himself to be “a standard-bearer who bears our standard” — and he put the onus on the business mogul to re-calibrate his campaign and offer a more inclusive vision.
Asked by CNN anchor Jake Tapper whether he backs Trump, Ryan responded: “I’m just not ready to do that at this point. I’m not there right now. And I hope to, though, and I want to. But I think what is required is that we unify the party. And I think the bulk of the burden on unifying the party will have to come from our presumptive nominee.”
Editors Note: I have not posted on “Politics” for quite some time. If you read this website you know where we have stood in the past. We tried to evolve but after this morning I felt absolutely COMPELLED to write this article if nothing more than to get it off my chest !
We are living in historical times. Yes that can be said of any time in the past, however… Social Media, and the internet is finally creating an increasing level playing field of expression of how people feel. It is not just once a year in a voting booth. The dialogue is open and in the public. Its a threat to autocratic societies because it erodes control of a central government. Get used to it folks! Both Democrat and Republican politicians alike should take careful note that there is a movement afoot whereby the voice is with the PEOPLE once again. Republicans are being forced to decide. Side with the people or side with the old guard? Go with “The Party” or be a revolutionary and go with someone like Donald Trump. (Maybe its the same “Hope and Change” message but on the other side of the aisle now!) There was a belief at one time in this country that anyone who had good ideas and had the ability to inspire people could run for President and win IF the one man one vote rule was held supreme and fair elections prevailed. What we are seeing in this primary election cycle is the power of the internet to give voice to the people to create a level playing field that reaches out to another generation. Short of a Republican or Democratic politician forcing their way into a voting booth with us, and pulling the lever they want, WE, as individuals contribute to that final say.
While Sec. Sebilius was in the process of testifying before congress the infamous gateway into the world of healthcare panacea was down.
How embarrassing!!! This was put in front of her while she was testifying at 11:56 EDT Oct 30th in Congress!!
This is the same message you will receive at some point while trying to find the most basic information:
THREE YEARS TO MAKE A WEBSITE and we get a trainwreck ! THIS DOES NOT INSTILL CONFIDENCE in Washington controlled programs that are to now affect how we receive healthcare. All in the name of redistribution of wealth on the not so subtle Democratic Socialist Agenda.
TO MY LIBERTARIAN FRIENDS !!!! Is there any more blatent example of why BIG GOVERNMENT is not a solution to our domestic needs! She was questioned this morning as to whether or not she had a back up plan IF IN FACT not enough healthy young people sign up for a plan that they don’t feel they need. She had no answer… except to say they would be “encouraged ” to sign up. ENCOURAGED TO SIGN UP…? What does that mean? How will that encouragement be implemented? Higher penalties? Criminal action? Will we now need a new Depart of of Health Care Enforcement to be created by Big Brother? Moderate Democrats that drank the cool aid still have time to come to their senses and vote out these leftist ideologues from the Senate and House.
Finally — Any pretense that the individual will have choice is bogus. This situation comes from the party that expounds to be PRO CHOICE. What hypocrisy. Not only is this program a TAX but its a tax of the most insidious kind. It sets the stage for the rationalization of MASSIVE government regulation over individual liberty. Everything we eat, drink and even do will look to be controlled!!! All in the name of reducing health care costs….. Read 1984 and Brave New World…. its unfolding before your eyes Democrats and YOU are enabling it! INDIVIDUAL FREEDOMS WILL MOST CERTAINLY BE SOUGHT TO BE CONTROLLED MORE AND MORE BY THE NANNY STATE! The Affordable Care Act has in fact set this ugly future in motion as it suits the Socialist agenda perfectly! Moderate Democrats have a chance to wake up and align with Moderate Republicans under a LIBERTARIAN banner. Our personal freedoms are at stake…
