Immigration Vote Splits Gang of 8 : Roll Call News (Remember Joe “You Lie” Wilson? Shockingly, he was right. Senate votes down Jeff Sessions amendment that would bar immigrants who get green cards from getting free or subsidized health care)
As regular listeners to The Teri O’Brien Show know, like many of you, I have a special fondness for calling out useful idiots. Not only is it a really fun activity, it’s one that also helps restore our country. If there’s any downside to this hobby it’s that it’s not exactly like doing a Rubik’s Cube. Well, it’s like a Rubik’s Cube for this guy. For me, it’s more like taking a nap on the couch with the dogs. I just relax, and suddenly they arrive, on my various screens. Today’s entries are U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Lindsey “John McCain Jr” Graham (R-SC), and Robert Corker (R-TN), who emerged from last night’s dinner with the One gushing over how “sincere” B. Hussein is. For a second, I thought i was watching Dennis Rodman talking about Kim Jong Un, but McCain’s missing at least one nose ring.
“Sincere” isn’t exactly the adjective that springs to mind when I think of the current occupant of the Oval Office, but then he never bought me dinner, which is funny because usually I’m the kind of girl who would insist that a guy whose doing to me and the rest of the country AT LEAST buy me a really nice meal.
It never ends with this RINO bunch. I cheer when Sen. Graham demands answers on Benghazi, and he is absolutely right about this latest botch in the war against radical islam, involving bin Laden’s son-in-law, which is what makes it doubly disappointing when he appears to not realize that he and the other senators are being played, pawns in Barack Obama’s “bipartisan” charade, who will be used in the never-ending campaign when he resumes jetting around the country to various elementary schools and community colleges to scream self-righteously about the evil Republicans and their obstruction, keeping the American public from having the worker’s paradise that he is desperately trying to create for us.
While these Establishment guys were being played, Sen. Rand Paul continued his amazing filibuster. The optics were stunning, and the script wrote itself. No, actually Mia Love wrote it when she appeared on ABC’s “This Week” last Sunday. During that appearance, she referred to the sequester, and said “This is a showdown between Washington and the American people.” I couldn’t have said it better myself.

Burns Fellow in Financial Policy Studies at AEI, general counsel of the US Treasury Department and White House counsel to President Ronald Reagan, and author of Bad History, Worse Policy: How a False Narrative About the Financial Crisis Let to the Dodd-Frank Act.
Thanks to my friend Matt Baker for the two cool new promos for the show!
SL (Smart Listener) Mensa sent us these quotes from John Maynard Keynes, which I wanted to share since we were talking about all the Keynesian crap that Gene Sperling and Barack Obama are trying to sell you. Link here. Don’t be played.)
“I believe that in many cases the ideal size for the unit of control and organisation lies somewhere between the individual and the modern State. I suggest, therefore, that progress lies in the growth and the recognition of semi-autonomous bodies within the State-bodies whose criterion of action within their own field is solely the public good as they understand it, and from whose deliberations motives of private advantage are excluded…”
“For my part I think that capitalism, wisely managed, can probably be made more efficient for attaining economic ends than any alternative system yet in sight, but that in itself it is in many ways extremely objectionable. Our problem is to work out a social organisation which shall be as efficient as possible without offending our notions of a satisfactory way of life.”
-John Maynard Keynes
Washington’s Economic Boom, Financed by You – NYTimes.com (While the rest of the country suffered in the Obama economy, Washington D.C. was a boom town, thanks to tax dollars. Now we are supposed to feel bad because some federal employees might be furloughed for a day or two?)

Justice Scalia’s comment during last week’s oral argument over Sec. 5 of the Voting Rights Act has Left even more unhinged than usual because he accurately described “preclearance,” what was supposed to be a temporary remedy as “racial entitlement.”
Soundbite I didn’t have time to play, in which liberals express outrage over Court invalidating legislative enactment. From MS-NBC’S “Up with Chris Hayes,” featuring Judith Browne Dianis, of something called the Advanceproject.org, and Akhil Reed Amar, of Yale Law School. Thought experiment: will they feel the same way about the Court reviewing the Defense of Marriage Act?
