The US Senate has advanced the health care bill as expected. All it took was corruption and bribery to get the votes. And to think, a few of you out there actually thought your rights weren’t for sale.
The Democratic Party’s decades-long push to remake the U.S. health care system cleared a major hurdle early Monday morning, with the Senate voting to advance a massive $871 billion bill to extend coverage to nearly all Americans and tighten regulations on private insurers.
Less than two days after releasing a bill with 383 pages of changes, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) corralled his politically diverse caucus and delivered the 60 votes necessary for the most crucial test vote in the legislative process so far — effectively assuring the reform package will clear the Senate later this week.
The final tally was a straight party-line vote, 60-40. All Democrats and two independents voted yes and all Republicans voted no – and each side bitterly accused the other of trying to thwart true reform through petty gamesmanship.
DC is still looking for one Democrat who’s actually read the bill.

This is a very popular video on Facebook right now, and it should be. This happened at a town hall with Rep. Brian Baird (D-WA).
For the record … Baird did, in fact, say town hallers were behaving like nazis.
Instead of appearing in person, where “extremists” would have “the chance to shout and make YouTube videos,” Baird said Wednesday, he’s holding what he calls “telephone town halls” instead.
Baird said he’s using the new system because he fears his political opponents may be planning “an ambush” to disrupt his meetings, using methods Baird compared to Nazism.
“What we’re seeing right now is close to Brown Shirt tactics,” Baird, D-Vancouver, said in a phone interview. “I mean that very seriously.”
I guess he forgot what “mean that very seriously” means. In the video he tells the Marine he never called them brown shirts (1:07). The quote above makes it clear he did make that statement.
He did apologize though. Right before he backtracked off of his disastrous decision to only hold tele-town halls (ala Harry Reid).
Rep. Brian Baird (D-Wash.) apologized yesterday for accusing town hall protesters of “brown shirt tactics” and comparing them to a “lynch mob.”
Baird, who originally decided against holding town hall meetings because of expected protests, now says he’ll schedule some forums during the August recess.
“Frankly, I have had concerns about how we can have constructive dialogue and, unfortunately, in response to some of the things we’ve been seeing across the nation I have said some things myself that I regret,” Baird said, according to the Tacoma News Tribune.
“I want to express that regret directly and announce that we will be holding a series of five town halls so people can express their opinions and ask questions.”
Baird made headlines last week by comparing town hall protesters to Nazi guards.
“What we’re seeing right now is close to Brown Shirt tactics,” Baird told the Columbian. “I mean that very seriously.”

Earlier this morning, Casey Hendrickson (talk show host, KXNT Las Vegas), broke the news that while Reid blamed Bush for the travel ban to Vegas and other cities … it was NOT a Bush policy. In fact, it is a federal law that was supported by Harry Reid. He voted for the bill that is being cited as the cause of the ban.
Our sister blog, Sin City Xtreme, is covering the news now.

The false veteran anti-war movement has been epidemic for some time now going back all the way to 9/11. It seems like every few months we find out that one of the “veterans” leading the charge against the war never actually served. Most of the time we find that they are prominent members of well known anti-war groups. Talk about the blind leading the blind.
The latest installment actually slipped by me for a few weeks. Sorry, I’ve been really busy.

|You remember Jessie MacBeth, don’t you? He was the fake “Army Ranger” thug who lied about serving in Iraq and was promoted by the Iraq Veterans Against the War until milbloggers exposed him as a total fraud.
Well, meet a guy who makes Jessie MacBeth look like a choir boy.
And add this story to the ever-growing file of bogus Winter Soldier Syndrome tales from MacBeth and Micah Wright to Josh Lansdale and Amorita Randall.
“Rick Duncan” of Colorado Springs was a prominent anti-war activist who claimed to have served in Iraq on three tours of duty AND survived the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon. He has now been unmasked as a lying mental patient (via Colorado Springs Gazette with a big hat tip to This Ain’t Hell):
This Ain’t Hell is covering this flawlessly.
Here’s an old post of mine migrated over here from the old site on this very subject.
Don’t forget about the time Harry Reid demanded that Rush Limbaugh apologize to these frauds.
So why are these fakes so successful? Well, the liberal population didn’t ever serve their country for the most part. Therefore they simply can’t identify a real veteran as is perfectly illustrated here.

It’s not news to discover Reid is a hypocrite with no memory, but it is somewhat humorous.
Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada said Monday that he is willing to let bygones be bygones in hopes of achieving cooperation with Republicans in the new Congress that starts in January.
“I want everyone within the sound of my voice to know, we don’t know what our majority is going to be, but whatever it is … I make a commitment to everyone that the only way we can succeed is working together,” Reid said.
Yeah … I’ll bet. Cooperation from Reid is the same as Stalin’s definition of freedom. Reid doesn’t seek cooperation at all with Republicans … he seeks servitude. Cooperation is something Reid can’t define, so allow me to help.
I guarantee you Reid isn’t interested in working with Republicans for a mutual benefit. He wants a Democrat benefit, and he seeks to halt any Republican benefits.
It is ironic Reid is calling for cooperation now, because he blatantly refused cooperation with Republicans on any issue since he has become Majority Leader of the Senate. Remember when he created the “war room” after talking about cooperation with Republicans in 2004?
But wait … Reid doesn’t want you to remember that.
“For me personally this is also a time not to look back,” Reid said, referring to the past two years when Democrats controlled only a small majority, leading to gridlock on many major issues.
“There is no need to look back,” Reid said. “There are reasons for everyone doing what they did, and we can let the historians write about what took place in the past.
“I would hope we all would look forward to a coming year as one of hope and necessity to change things because we obviously have a big hole, and we have to dig our way out of it,” Reid said. “The best thing is we have a hundred people digging in the same way.”
Told you Reid wasn’t interested in cooperation. He just made it clear that everyone must be working in the same way. His way no doubt.

I’ve mentioned that I’m a fan of Casey Hendrickson’s before on this site, and he has been kind enough to help me out with this blog a few times. Today Hendrickson was filling in on KXNT’s morning show, and he aired an interview he did with Harry Reid yesterday afternoon. The interview is almost a half hour long, and it’s the first time I’ve ever seen anyone really challenge Reid on several issues. The two of them were both respectful, but still went at each other for most of the interview. It culminated in Reid calling Hendrickson a racist.
I really want to give both of them credit here. Reid usually hangs up on people, but he actually extended the interview beyond what he was supposed to, and Hendrickson laid into him good.
KXNT does a segment called “The Flip” in which people can call in and flip someone off, or flip someone up. The bit was on fire with support for Hendrickson’s interview which took up the whole 7am hour. Except for one guy who called him a jackass.
Later on Rush Limbaugh picked up on the story (KXNT is the Limbaugh affiliate in Las Vegas), and aired some of Reid’s comments.
I was planning on blogging this already, but was waiting for KXNT to get the audio of the interview up on their website. It’s up there now, and KXNT has a poll on whether you thought the interview was fair towards Reid. At the time I wrote this the poll was at 94% in favor of Casey’s interview, and 6% thought it was an attempt to make Reid look bad. You can take their poll here, or you can take our poll in the left sidebar.
I was on Drudge a few minutes ago, and I noticed that Drudge has a story on his site about the interview. When you click the headline it takes you to Breitbart who has the racist comments part of the interview.
Below is the full interview from KXNT’s website.
