Pelosi gives us the finger on her way out of power.

 Pelosi stayed in an elaborate suite of an exclusive “natural tropical paradise” that rents for $10,000 a night. She took a private plane to Hawaii and was escorted throughout her trip by a motorcade of secret service and local police officers. Two Hawaii County Police vehicles camped outside the resort to guard Pelosi during her week-long stay, according to sources quoted in the story.”

     I am not an economist, nor am I as old and experienced as the wise woman from San Francisco who serves as the Speaker of the House of Representatives. But I am having a hard time grasping the concepts that Speaker Nancy Pelosi was trying to explain regarding unemployment compensation, job creation, and the economy.

     The Speaker stated that unemployment compensation is “good for the economy” because unemployment checks are “job creators”. The unemployment checks, with her analysis, fuel the economy. Perhaps I am viewing this in the wrong manner, because in my mind, I see this as a drain on the economy, a drain on state funds and federal funds, all of which are filled by the taxes of the businesses (that Obama loves to villify).

      I am open for enlightment on this issue!!

When asked last fall where the Constitution authorizes Congress to require citizens to buy health insurance, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was temporarily caught off guard, finally sputtering, “Are you serious? Are you serious?” She then quickly turned to another reporter without further comment.

Another Democrat, Rep. Phil Hare of Illinois, reacted similarly when recently posed that question by one of his constituents: “I don’t really worry about the Constitution on this, to be honest.”

While the thought that the Constitution actually limits the power of Congress to enact legislation may be foreign to some Democrats, the framers of the Constitution intended for the federal government to be limited to the powers that are specifically enumerated, or listed, in the text of the document.

In the Federalist Papers, James Madison wrote: “[T]he proposed Government cannot be deemed a national one; since its jurisdiction extends to certain enumerated objects only, and leaves to the several States a residuary and inviolable sovereignty over all other objects.”

I couldn’t find an “appropriate card” to commemorate the 70th birthday of the “Most Hated Woman in America” (how soon that title passed from Michelle’s clutches), so this open letter from America’s Right will have to suufice:

Dear Speaker Pelosi,

It is near impossible to find a “Happy Birthday to the Woman Who Ruined My Country” greeting card in the local drugstore, so this letter will have to do.  I hope you don’t mind.

You know, Madame Speaker, it’s a good thing that Hallmark’s “Animosity” section is so threadbare, because this letter has been a long time in the making.  It is the culmination of not only my own patience beginning to boil over but, as shown by your recent 11 percent job approval rating, also the patience of a vast majority of the American populace as well. You, Madame Pelosi, will not limit me to one vote; if, indeed, there is any truth to the old adage, “The Pen is Mightier than the Sword,” then we’re about to find out.

Let me be very clear, Mrs. Pelosi: my mission in life is now solely dedicated to influencing, in any way that I possibly can, your removal from office. Strong words from an insignificant man in the smallest state in the union, I know, but you are a threat to America and, as shown this week as you forced through an unconstitutional bill and triumphantly trampled over the individual liberties of 300 million Americans, a domestic enemy of America’s Constitution.  And best yet, birthday girl, is the reality that everyone–save the mindless automatons who blindly follow you–knows it.

Most importantly, though, you’re a threat to something even more precious to me – my son’s future happiness. Apparently, in your desperate, tunnel-visioned attempts to take power in megalomaniacal style, you have badly lost sight of a fundamental truth about life: never get in the way of a parent trying to protect his child. It’s a losing proposition, each and every time.

In the Slaughter Solution, the rule would declare that the House “deems” the Senate version of Obamacare to have been passed by the House. House members would still have to vote on whether to accept the rule, but they would then be able to say they only voted for a rule, not for the bill itself.

Thus, Slaughter is preparing a rule that would consider the Senate bill “passed” once the House approves a corrections bill that would make changes. Democrats would thereby avoid a direct vote on the health care bill while allowing it to become law!

Constitutional attorney Mark R. Levin asks, “They’re going to present a rule, issued by her committee as chairman, that says that the House already adopted the Senate bill when we know it didn’t?”

U.S Constitution, Article I, Section VII, Clause II.

Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States; If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such Reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the Bill, it shall be sent, together with the Objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a Law. But in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by Yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively…

According to Levin, James Madison himself gave special care and attention to this clause in the Constitution.

Levin: And do you want to know why? Because this clause goes to the heart of this Republic.

This clause goes to the heart of how our representative body, that is Congress, makes laws. And so I want you to [observe] how particular the Framers were… They have to pass a Bill to present it to the President…

This is one of the most exacting clauses in the Constitution.

And, to the best of my knowledge, which extends over three decades, no Congress has previously tried to institute policies without actual statutes.

Here we have the President of the United States and Congressional leaders actually talking about the possibility of a brazen and open violation of one of the most fundamental aspects of our Constitution and Republic! How we actually make laws!

Let me be as clear as I know how. If this is done, this will create the greatest Constitutional crisis since the Civil War. It would be 100 times worse than Watergate.

…It would be government by fiat… meaning there would be no law… the mere discussion by officials in this government is such a grotesque violation of the actual legislative function of Congress [that it] puts us… at the brink. At the brink.

This is why we conservatives revere the Constitution. This is why we stress the Constitution’s words have meaning and historical context and must be complied with. Because otherwise we have anarchy, which leads to tyranny.

This is a crucial lesson for those of you who… aren’t sure what your beliefs are, or if you have any beliefs. Or aren’t sure if you even care. We have an effort underway by the one of the most powerful chairmen in Congress, the woman who heads the Rules Committee, …openly discussing gutting Congress. Gutting Congress.

from RedState:

Drunk with delusion, will the Jonestown Kool-Aid Brigade go for it on ObamaCare? We’ll find out at the end of the week — but we have been hearing that for weeks. No decision, is in fact, a decision.

The endless attempt to revive the dead, by practitioners who believe that one more adrenaline shot, one more “CLEAR!” with the paddles will re-awake ObamaCare to rise and lead the Dems to the zen-like calm of YES WE CAN and HOPE and happy-days-once-again were at one time heroic, and now are unseemly and a little nutty.

But even those with a God-complex can’t raise the dead, or is a zen-like calm really just dead?

Meanwhile in the real-world, the White House pivoted from health care to financial reform and today the New York Times reports this morning that Senator Dodd said — (and the ironies about health care will hit you over the head):

the administration was “getting precariously close” to excessive ambition for the legislation. “I don’t want to be in a position where we end up doing nothing because we tried to do too much,” he said.

Meet the Pelosi family! Using Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, Judicial Watch uncovered thousands of pages of travel documents related to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s use of military aircraft.

What hasn’t been revealed so far is that military aircraft are being used to shuttle Pelosi’s kids and grandkids between DC and San Francisco without any Congressional representatives even onboard! Put simply, the United States Air Force is serving as a multi-billion dollar chauffeur- and baby-sitting service for Nancy Pelosi’s kids and grandkids — presumably because commercial travel is beneath the families of the autocrats.

But this couldn’t be a waste of resources because the U.S. military really isn’t engaged in any other significant activities around the world.

     Even as the President was saying that healthcare should be “slowed down”, and Scott Brown seated as the new Senator of Massachusetts, Speaker Nancy Pelosi was still trying for an “end run” around the will of the American People.

     The House had the option of taking the Seante version of the ObamaCare, unchanged, and vote upon it. If it were to pass (218 votes), it would go to the President for his signature. The plan was to convince the members that any issues would be “corrected” in later legislation.

     The Speaker has announced today that the option to adopt the Senate version is dead. She cannot muster the votes among the Blue Dog Democrats and others to reach the 218. This gos along with her “180” change in rhetoric this week, from “Massachusetts won’t change anything” to “we need to listen to the people”.

     It has garnered barely a mention this week, in light of the “connect the dot” failures of the Obama administration (yes, he now owns the failure– no more “Bush’s fault”), but Speaker Nancy Pelosi lost one of her ObamaCare votes this week:

FL-19: This seemed to elude almost everyone yesterday, but Rep. Robert Wexler’s resignation was official over this weekend; he heads to the helm of a Middle East peace-oriented non-profit. His resignation leaves Nancy Pelosi short one “yes” vote for the upcoming post-conference HCR vote, meaning one less seat in the lifeboat for whatever vulnerable Dem wants to take a pass.     http://www.swingstateproject.com/showDiary.do?diaryId=6133
