In her farewell address to Congress today, former House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, filibustered from the Chair, touting her accomplishments and the miraculous characteristics of Obamacare as if she was identifying her one claim to fame before she fades from the scene. Leaning into the microphone, as if in fear of someone dragging her away, she turned the occasion, which should have been the swearing-in of the new House Speaker, John Boehner, into a celebration of the election of Democrat John Kennedy as president, and her tenure of greatness as former House Speaker. It was painfully reminiscent of former Democrat President Bill Clinton’s all-afternoon-long departure from Washington, D.C.’s presidential limelight.
The Sargeant of Arms of the House, should have grabbed the hook from the coat closet and pulled her off the stage after she launched into her personal aggrandisement and embarrassing effort to appear greater than her successor, while he stood politely behind her, ever the perfect gentleman. While she behaved arrogantly, he conducted himself with humility, dismissing her distasteful mocking of his gavel choice. In her words, “It’s larger than most of the gavels here.” Perhaps he feels the need to remind the House Democrats that he now holds the power of Speaker and that the Republicans now hold the majority, since their interviews on radio and television sounded as if they were not going to acknowledge that.
In both photos, as well as in her speech today, Pelosi sends the message, “It’s all about me! It’s all about me!” Arrogance is a difficult thing to hide.
Contrast her with Speaker Boehner’s demeanor. Even after Pelosi hands him the gavel and the power and respect that accompanies it, she is STILL standing in front of him, monopolizing the podium and the microphone. Boehner’s head is down and his message in one of humbleness, hence the tears when he realizes that America has afforded him the opportunities to rise from nothing to something. He is emotional because he truly appreciates this great country, the freedom we’re all promised and his chance to make a difference in Congress for all of us. House Speaker John Boehner appreciates and loves the Constitution and is humbled by all that it guarantees. He stands there humbly as living proof.
One shows arrogance and a love for power, celebrity, and wealth. The other shows humbleness and a willingness to help others reach their goals and keep their freedom. One is haughty with nose in the air, clinging to the microphone well beyond what was necessary. The other is down-to-earth and mindful that he is no better than the rest of us.
To a thundering and very prolonged applause as he was first introduced as the new Speaker of the House, John Boehner, the man, said, “It’s still just me.”Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
Marbie’s Blog has covered the Global Warming/Climate Change/Environmentalism/Sustainability/World Control/Pagan Gaia Religion movement and it’s tenants and leaders and participants. One of which was Ted Turner of Turner Broadcasting Network. Read the original post at: https://marbiesblog.wordpress.com/2009/10/30/a-shocker-installment-3/ “Ted Turner, multibillionaire and founder of CNN. Turner is deeply involved in the Global Green Agenda. He donated more than a billion dollars to the UN which was specifically tagged to fund the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change).
Turner personally conceived and produced ‘Captain Planet’ an edu-tainment cartoon designed to brainwash our children.
“Gaia, the spirit of Earth, awakens from a century long sleep to find the Earth in peril. She summons five teenagers, the Planeteers, from around the globe, and gives each of them a ring which controls an element of nature – Earth, Fire, Wind, Water – and a special power, Heart, which allows them to use their new powers wisely and compassionately.” – http://www.turner.com/planet/mythology/index.html“
Today, James Jay Lee took hostages inside the office building of the Discovery Channel, a network which routinely airs global warming/climate change propaganda. He made the following demands:
Discovery Channel “MUST have daily television programs at prime time slots BASED ON DANIEL QUINN’S “MY ISHMAEL” PAGES 207-212 where solutions to save the planet would be done…” Promote Malthus-Darwin beliefs.
Focus must be given on how people can live WITHOUT GIVING BIRTH TO MORE FILTHY HUMAN CHILDREN since those new additions continue pollution and are pollution.
Must stop broadcasting programs that encourage the birth of human babies…and broadcast programs that encourage human sterilization and infertility.
Stop promoting war and war technology.
Expose the filth of civilization, its disgusting religious-cultural roots and greed.
Promote the cessation of immigration to the U.S. and anchor babies.
Find solutions for global warming, pollution, breeding, international trade and the whole blasted human economy.
REVERSE GLOBAL WARMING AND THE DESTRUCTION OF THE PLANET!
“Lee [also] said at the time that he experienced an ‘‘awakening” when he watched former Vice President Al Gore’s environmental documentary ‘‘An Inconvenient Truth.”
By his own words, the gunman told us that he was driven to do this by Al Gore’s error-ridden scare film, “An Inconvenient Truth”, and Daniel Quinn’s, “My Ishmael”, about the peril of the planet. We’re very familiar with Gore’s piece of work and his claims that the world will be destroyed in ten years (we’re down to 5 years, 4 months and 25 days since Gore pronounced our doom in 2006. You can see the doomsday clock on http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/home/today.guest.html down near the bottom of the page.)
Sen. Jon Kyle of Arizona told a group of his constituents that he met privately with Obama about the border and Obama told him that he couldn’t secure the borders. If he did, Republicans would have no reason to pass his immigration reform bill (read that “amnesty and welfare and social security for illegal aliens). That is positively cold-hearted and barbaric. People are dying.
Obama promised the Gov. of Arizona that he would send troops and financial aid to the border of Arizona and Mexico within two weeks. The deadline has come and gone with no word whatsoever from Obama or his staff. Arizona and Gov. Jan Brewer learned that, instead of sending aid, Obama is planning to sue Arizona for its efforts to protect its citizens and defend its border against Mexican invasion. They learned of it from a foreign news cast that was broadcast back on June 8. In this cast, Hillary Clinton states that Obama is suing Arizona. One would expect a president to contact the Governor before June 8 and tell her of his intentions. Not this president. He practices Chicago thuggery in the White House. Not a shred of common decency or consideration. No sign of professionalism.
Common decency would compel him to secure the borders JUST TO STOP THE KILLING AND KIDNAPPING, AND THE SMUGGLING OF DRUGS AND PEOPLE – all devastating to American citizens. Instead, he is refusing to secure the borders, hoping he can use the crime and devastation to force his opponents to succumb to the pressure and pass his “amnesty and welfare for illegals” bill. This is unforgivable and worthy of impeachment. The president swore to uphold the Constitution and protect American citizens and the border. HE IS NOT.
Obama has promised an inadequate number of border agents, ICE officials and money, but has not yet even sent that. His spokespeople do not state the numbers of agents, they use better sounding terms like “doubling the number”. If the number was nine, then doubling would be eighteen, woefully insufficient to make a difference. He promised Gov. Brewer that he would send 1200 agents to the border. Sound good? These will be desk-bound agents. Still sound good? Not so much.
The sooner Chicago leaves the White House, the sooner this country can begin work to regain safety, sovereignty and individual liberties, stolen by despicable power plays of Obama, Pelosi, Reid and all who voted with them. November can’t come soon enough.
Of course, the White House denies this. There were only two people in the room: Obama and Kyle. Who is telling the truth? A simple Google search of Obama’s campaign promises and today’s reality will result in dozens of lies told by Obama to the American people. If he lied dozens of times, what’s one more? I believe Sen. Kyle. The proof is in the pudding. No aid is going to Arizona and the Feds are suing that state.
Arizona Sen. John McCain got a bill passed through the Senate Armed Services Committee for 6,000 troops to be sent to defend the border. However, it has to pass in the full Senate, the House of Representatives and be signed into law by the president.
“It turns out that the approval for 6,000 troops that McCain got through the Senate Armed Services Committee is attached to a larger Senate bill.
According to news reports, McCain’s proposal might be challenged by the administration as an infringement on the authority of the commander-in-chief.”
