Republicans prepare to pass Homeland Security funding

Republicans prepare to pass Homeland Security funding
Hours from a partial agency shutdown, Congress is moving to approve a short-term funding bill for the Homeland Security Department that leaves intact Obama administration immigration policies Republicans vowed to repeal.

The GOP is trying to destroy this country from within. My old moniker for the GOP: Slow motion coup d'etat, is more relevant than ever. :(

UPDATE: GOP didn't pass a bill funding homeland security. They are so useless.

I'm at #CPAC2015 where participants are listening to Republicans tell Obama teleprompter jokes, using teleprompters.- John Fugelsang

The World Is A Safer Place Without Saddam

“When the conservatives go to run for president, you can’t have people disagreeing with 97% of the world’s scientists, relentlessly, and then claim you want to participate in the most powerful country in the world.” –Bill Nye

Yep. Global Warming Is Worse Than We Thought.
From the ground in this extreme northern part of Antarctica, spectacularly white and blinding ice seems to extend forever. What can't be seen is the battle raging underfoot to re-shape Earth.
Water is eating away at the Antarctic ice, melting it where it hits the oceans. 

John Boehner Tells Press To Kiss Off With Kissy Noises!
The Department of Homeland Security is headed for a shutdown tomorrow night unless Congress acts to fund it. Republicans in the Senate and the House can't seem to get on the same page as to the right strategy to solve the problem. It's deja vu all over again for a Republican congressional leadership...

Republican Shenanigans

O'Reilly's Pants Pulled Down. Again.
Former colleagues of Bill O’Reilly, the Fox News host whose tales of past reporting exploits are facing renewed scrutiny, have disputed his account of surviving a bombardment of bricks and rocks while covering the 1992 riots in Los Angeles.

 If Google auto-complete really reflects popular questions previous users have asked…and when you type, “Is the moon…” it adds, “real…” Then I give up, because that means the most frequent question people ask Google about the moon is, “Is it real?”  Also, if people have really asked, “Is the moon hollow? Is the moon a spaceship? And, is the moon a hologram? Then President Rick Perry, it’s all yours.   Just…Just take over. - Bill Maher

Right Out Of Central Casting
William Temple has a schtick. He goes to conservative events as as Button Gwinnett, a Georgia man who signed the Declaration of Independence. He carries a Gasden flag. (It's been signed by politicians including Ted Cruz and Michele Bachmann.)

“We should at least be honest with our kids and tell them the truth about drug laws in this country: Kids, if you’re going to experiment, make absolutely certain that, beforehand, your parents are white and well-connected.” – Bill Maher

Rock The Voter News

Do, you know that Jeb’s father, the first President Bush, was the last president who didn’t smoke pot? You can see the progression from Clinton copping to it but still needing to say he didn’t inhale, to George W. Bush, not denying it, just saying he wouldn’t answer, to Obama, who said, “Yeah, I smoked weed. I smoked a lot of it, and I looked cool doing it.”  

But, don’t all these guys – Clinton, Jeb, W., Obama – don’t they all owe a debt to the 40,000 unlucky Americans currently in jail for the exact same crime?  - Bill Maher

Sarah Palin Throws Herself & GOP Hopefuls Under The Bus. Why?
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) suggested — perhaps unwittingly — on Thursday that neither she nor any Republican weighing a 2016 presidential campaign is eligible for the position.

People joke about Hilary Clinton's age but she's still younger than the 85yr old Herbert Hoover ideas she'll be running against. - John Fugelsang

“What is behind Giuliana’s comments? Racism. You’re not allowed to say this. We now live in a society where it’s worse to call someone a racist than to be one.” – Fran Lebowitz

Business/Tech News

“Ben Stein last year during the campaign when it was heating up at the end, said, 
Obama is the most racist president we’ve ever had.'  And I thought, even more than the eleven who actually owned slaves?!” – Bill Maher

Head Transplants?
It's a fascinating concept. You have an otherwise perfectly healthy head on a body that no longer functions. You have, also, an otherwise perfectly healthy donor body. What if you could take the head from its non-functioning body and transplant it onto the healthy body?

"I'll be long gone before some smart person ever figures out what happened inside this Oval Office.'' --President George W. Bush


Seriously, if it wasn't for AHNC viewers, I'd starve!
