These Three Couldn’t Find The Truth If It Bit Them *Weekend Open Thread*ted*

by

Update at the end of the post.

That would be Democratic Representatives Nancy Pelosi and Sheila Jackson Lee. I realize this isn’t news, but their recent diatribes remind us again of how easy it is for these Representatives to lie, or if one wants to give them the benefit of the doubt, are so incredibly ignorant, they have no business voting on bills that affect US Citizens.

First up is Nancy Pelosi and her response to the “Hobby Lobby” ruling by the Supreme Court (h/t Facebook friend):

My favorite part of this response by Megyn Kelly? Reminding people that NANCY PELOSI co-sponsored the RELIGIOUS FREEDOM bill. Oh, yeah. It’s like that. For her to make the claim that she did that the Justices changed the law about birth control is sheer fear mongering and the very worst kind of politicking. So, not only is she a liar, but she is a hypocrite, dissembler, and flat out manipulator.

And then there is Sheila Jackson Lee. Oh, there are so many things to be said about the numerous times that she has demonstrated her less than firm grasp on the truth or logic. But this is a particularly timely one as it involves the current border crisis. From the Daily Caller:

A prominent Democrat on the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security seems to have two different interpretations of the situation at the southern U.S. border where tens of thousands of illegal immigrants from Central America have been apprehended.

“I disagree it is in devastating condition,” Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee said of what some are calling a “border crisis” in an interview Thursday with MSNBC.

“I think with now 21,000 border patrol agents is under control.”

Let’s let this sink in for just a moment. Rep. Jackson Lee is on the HOMELAND SECURITY COMMITTEE. How freakin’ scary is THAT???

But wait, there’s more from the Daily Caller:

But her statement seems to contradict the one currently on Jackson Lee’s congressional website.

“She believes that our country currently has deficient border security, which is the result of a history of congressional under-funding,” the site reads.

The flow of illegal immigrants this year has more than doubled last year’s numbers, leaving DHS and its immigration agencies scrambling to keep up.

Good grief, how can this woman be in such a position of power? It truly boggles the mind, doesn’t it?

That goes for Pelosi, too. That they can, with straight faces, make these assertions, can just make crap up and spew it like it’s the Gospel truth, is telling about them as people, but also about those who VOTE for them. They make DEMONSTRABLY false statements, and yet, there they are, still in Congress! Unbelievable.

Oh, and of course, they are not the only liars in government, we all know that. Heck, we need to look no further than the POTUS to find one of the biggest liars around, and unapologetically so, I might add. His latest claim that he is, and I quote, “not interested in photo ops,” is one of the more laughable lies this President has spewed. That has been a hallmark of his Presidency as far as I can tell, one photo op or “selfie” after another, it seems. “Not interested in photo ops” – what a freakin’ joke.

Then there was his arrogant, condescending, duplicitous response to Rep. Boehner going ahead with the lawsuit over Obama’s abuse of Executive Orders (specifically over Obamacare). Remember that liberal law George Washington law professor, Jonathan Turley, thinks this lawsuit is a GOOD idea as a way to rein Obama in. But of course, that sort of logic fails Obama and his sycophants. Big surprise. Anyway, Obama made this statement in Austin while avoiding the above-referenced “photo op” at the border in which he refused to participate (read: refused to see what was really going on there):

[…] “Republicans didn’t seem to mind when President Bush took more executive actions than I did,” Obama said. “Maybe it’s just me they don’t like. I don’t know.” […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Yeah, that’s it – they’re just not that into you, that’s why they are going to this trouble and effort to curtail your out-of-control law re-writing.

Uh huh – as I mentioned just the other day (“So Sue Me“), back when Obama was campaigning, he claimed he wouldn’t be doing this kind of thing in the FIRST place, never mind the conflation of quality v. quantity that the Democrats continue to assert. Again, logic does not seem to be a strong suit in Washington, and sadly, the same applies to too many of our fellow citizens.

I think it is safe to say that Obama’s another one who couldn’t find the truth if it bit him.

Ugh.

Frankly, all this crap makes me want to take a shower to try and wash it off. If only that would work. But since this is a Weekend Open Thread, you know I can’t leave it there, especially since this weekend is the culmination of the World Cup in soccer. Now, I love soccer. It is one of my all-time favorite sports besides baseball. If any of y’all have seen any of the matches and the new level of “diving” (the Brazilian team should be up for an Oscar for their collective acting), you will know why the following video which I saw at IJReview.com, is so funny:

So funny, especially if one watches soccer. It completely cracked me up.

How about you? What’s on your mind today? The Liar in the White House? The completely stupid comments by Pelosi and Jackson Lee? Feel free to discuss any and all of the above, as well as anything else on your minds.

UPDATE: Megyn Kelly had another great rant on the Pelosi blatant lies, with a discussion that follows with Kirsten Powers and Marc Thiessen. BizPacReview.com had the story, including a longer video, so you can watch that one at the LINK. Below is the primary part of Kelly’s rant and discussion:

Yeah, Pelosi “misspoke.” Good grief…

    Poor Nancy the California Sun has baked her brain. 😆

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I don’t think there was much there to bake in the first place. Since she’s aCalifornia liberal it doens’t matter to those that vote for her is she’s smart of not – just being a liberal is enough. She showed how “smart” she was when she made her constituents take difficult votes and lost the House. Her prancing around with a giant mallet when over 1/2 the country opposed Obamacare was another bit of stupidity IMO.

      As for Jackson Lee, she’s a liar and a fool. But she’s the right “color” for her district so they don’t care much how much she screws them.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        Sadsly, I know you are right abt Pelosi and how she keeps her seat. It is truly troubling how willingly peoe give their votes to someone who has difficulty tringing coherent sentences together, much less tell the truth.

        And SJL, wow, she is something isn’t she?

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Lol, so it appears!

    Tough talk 🙂

    Have a safe happy and blessed weekend friends. ❤

    Of all the lies Obama has told and they are to numerous for me to recall one of the stupidest, the silliest and the one that showcases his dishonesty and buffoonery is that he doesn’t “do” photo ops.

    Excuse me…

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Right?? That eas just laughable on its face, yet who in the MSM challenged him on it? Who is highlighting that photo you shared of him yukking it up on one side of the table? While Gov. Perry was looking so erious? He continues to get away with making all kinds of outrageous remarks, like?All the “good” he has done with his pen, and too many people just lap it up.

      Again, ugh…

    Aren’t some of the women claiming to represent us, simply astounding? The stupid, it just burns.

    I wanted to shriek at them, like don’t worry about employers picking our BC for us, we haven’t got any! Employers, that is! Like where’s all the jobs, people?? What about unemployed women, women in school, women at home with kids?? If employers dole out our BC, does that mean that women without jobs can no longer have sex?? That’s how irrational this whole thing is. We’re supposedly these strong, empowered women, but the fairly well off, well educated, like the employed with healthcare benefits, are apparently too stupid to figure out how to provide themselves with BC.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      EXCELLENT point, insanity – women have suffered TREMENDOUSLY in terms of unemployment under this Administration. So not only is Pelosi’ argument based on lies, but the supposition that women even have jobs is an assumption, too.Yep, great point!

      And no kidding – that Pelosi continued to get elected even after demonstrating her lack of intelligence is really telling. There are some doozies in there representing us, that’s for sure.

      Great comment!

    Here is an excellent response from an immigrant to our country regarding the influx of children (h/t Bizpacreview.com):

    And Judge Jeanine had a good rant on the ability of terrorists to get through our Southern border, too: http://www.bizpacreview.com/2014/07/13/judge-jeanine-warns-about-trojan-horse-of-terrorism-in-tide-of-illegal-immigrants-131455

    Ugh oh….they’re beginning to turn on him!

    Ha!

    Obama from the south side of Chicago??? I didn’t know Chicago extended to Hawaii (or Kenya)….whatever.

    Hi Amy!

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      NUNLY!!!! Suzy and I have been thinking abt you and have been wondering how you were doing. Great to *see* you!

      LOL – yes, I can imagine people in Chicago have no desire to take responsibility for Obama! Thanks for the video – WOW! Those folks are telling it like it is, aren’t they? Whooey…
