Pelosi Statement on Judiciary and Intelligence Committees Passing FISA Reform Bill

Wednesday, October 10, 2007

Contact: Brendan Daly/Nadeam Elshami, 202-226-7616

Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement today after the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees each approved a bill to amend the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA):

“The Intelligence and Judiciary Committees have approved a bill to restore constitutional checks and balances (read: no way we’re going to let you do anything.) to the way electronic surveillance is used to gather intelligence. The RESTORE Act gives the government all the tools necessary to acquire under the law the intelligence that can keep our country safe. (Except the ones you all don’t like.)

“At the same time, the bill protects the privacy of Americans by putting the FISA court back in business and assuring strong oversight of surveillance activities by Congress. The two committees also reaffirmed Congress’ constitutional role by refusing to consider granting retroactive immunity to companies that participated in the President’s warrantless surveillance programs until the Administration has provided Congress with full information about those programs. (Hell, I wouldn’t give you all my dogs’ rabies vaccine number…)

“We can and must protect and defend the Constitution as we protect and defend the American people.” (How? By making it near impossible for our Intelligence guys to act on the intelligence??? Oh, that’s a good one!)

Pelosi ‘proud’ of her House: ‘We’ve drained swamp’

by Naftali Bendavid

(Notable quotes:)

“We have drained the swamp,” Pelosi said. “We have passed historic legislation.” (oh, I wouldn’t say that. You, Murtha, Jefferson, Kerry, Kennedy, Waters, Woolsey, Reid and Durbin to name just a few, are still holding seats. And what “historic legislation”? Keeping funds for our troops hostage for your political agenda? It’s ‘historic’ all right ~ never has there been so much use of the troops as pawns so blatantly while this country is at war.)

“It is not just the opinion of the base of the Democratic Party that this war should end, it’s the opinion of the American people, largely across-the-board,” Pelosi said. (Keep saying that and clap your hands 3 times and think happy thoughts) “Democrats, Independents, and a reasonable chunk of the Republican Party as well. They want the war to end. They don’t want to hear about 60 votes in the Senate-‘Just do it!’ ” (you know who really wants the war to end, Nancy? Try the soldiers over there fighting it. It’s just that they don’t want it to end in defeat ~ again. It goes against everything they stand for, which is something you apparently have no clue about. They’re so much better than that.)

“We have to make responsible decisions in the Congress that are not driven by the dissatisfaction of anybody who wants the war to end tomorrow,” Pelosi said. “God bless them for their passion on this issue. I believe that mostly they are right. But I do believe that we are responsible for the responsible, safe redeployment (read “defeated”) of our troops out of Iraq, and that is what we will continue to fight for.” (if only you would use all that energy to fight for our country!)

Pelosi then launched into a surprisingly personal description of the protesters camped outside her house: “I’ve had, for four or five months, people sitting outside my home, going into my garden in San Francisco, angering my neighbors, hanging their clothes from the trees, building all kinds of things-Buddhas, I don’t know what they are (What this? You’re not in touch with your ‘Buddha within’?? No wonder you’re having such a hard time with your base.) -couches, sofas, permanent living facilities on my front sidewalk. (Just imagine what their homes look like…) You can imagine my neighbors’ reaction to all of this. And if they were poor and they were sleeping on my sidewalk, they would be arrested for loitering. (hmmm, maybe in your neighborhood…not necessarily anyone else’s) But because they have ‘Impeach Bush’ across their chest, it’s the First Amendment, four or five months into that. So I’m well aware of the unhappiness of the base.” (smack-down! But hey, she understands…)

Read this from one of the very upset with Nancy anti-war folks.

Pelosi Defends Removal of ‘God’ from Flag Certificates

 

Of course she does. It offends so many of her base. And God knows, she doesn’t want all those atheists cluttering up her lawn. It might intrude on all her praying for President Bush to come to his senses and see things her way…

And I thought democrats hated corporations. Don’t they??

A Poem

I know, lately I’ve been just posting about other people’s posts.  The roofers are here and the pounding (3 days now) is making it hard to put one thought next to another.

I’ll tell you though ~ I am thoroughly disgusted with our Congress’s shameful political shenanigans, still.   Every time I think they’ve hit the lowest low, up they pop with a new low.  And I just can’t listen to Harry Reid say how patriotic the Democrats are and how they support the troops ONE MORE TIME!!! Goes for Pelosi, Murtha, Durbin, Obey, Reed, Levin and the rest of them too.  And all those cowering RINOs who are a slap in the face to the men and women who took an oath to defend the Constitution these “elected officials” took an oath to uphold.

Nevermind the antics of the anti-war crowd who also say they support the troops all the while doing everything possible to undermine them and stab them in the back.

Devildog has something to say about this in a poem she wrote:

“Tell me again Momma, what am I fighting for?”

Tell me again Momma
What am I fighting for;
if not for our freedom
from shore to shore!

Is it wrong to help others
fight to be free?
Is “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
only for you and me?

Tell me again, Momma,
I really want to know;
Tell me why we’re dying,
and I’ll be set to go!

You see, I always believed in the “Pledge”
we said in school everyday!
I felt proud to tell everyone,
that’s the “American Way!”

But, I’m not sure anymore
why we should all keep trying;
To serve and protect
as I watch my brothers and sisters dying!

Tell me again, Momma,
why we’re all in this place;
When our Congress seems more concerned
with its political race!

Doesn’t “Duty, Honor, and Service”
mean anything anymore?
Aren’t we all fighting for freedom
like thousands of soldiers before?

I know why I fight,
Why I risk my life everyday!
I fight for our freedom
and the American way!

I fight for my country,
the land that I lone;
I fight for the right to pray
to God up above!

Yet, everyday news comes from home’
Protesters line the streets everywhere!
Congress refuses to support us,
The rest of the nation seems not to care!

So, tell me again Momma’
What am I fighting for?
When those we are dying for
spread anti-war sentiments from shore to shore!

Don’t they know they embolden the enemy
and feed into their lies?
While today on the battlefield
another soldier died!

The enemy says it will destroy us
and tear down our mighty nation!
Yet protesters march against us’
and shout in jubilation!

So, tell me again Momma
I really want to know;
Tell me why we’re dying,
And I’ll be set to go!

These protesters say they support us,
but they refuse us what we need;
Where is their support for our war effort’
In all the papers that we read?

The enemy sees their actions
and taunts us every day;
with the news from home and propaganda,
hoping to scare us away!

Tell me again, Momma,
What am I fighting for;
If not for freedom
from shore to shore?

The protesters may support us,
at least that’s what they say;
But, their actions support our enemy,
every single day!

So, let me tell you Momma,
What I’m really fighting for;
I’m fighting so my son and daughter
never have to go to war!

All the protesters in the streets,
Those in Congress who turn a blind eye;
I fight for their children too,
So they won’t have to fight and die!

As long as Americans can stay safe and free,
and pray freely to God up above;
Maybe the children of those who abandon us
will come to share my American love!

So, let me tell you Momma,
What I fighting for!
I’m fighting so their children
won’t have to go to war!

I’m fighting in hope
I’ll live to see the day;
All the protesters and Congress
stop trying to throw our freedom away!

I’m fighting everyday
to serve, protect, and defend;
What the protesters and Congress
try so hard to end.

I’m fighting to save America,
and freedom everywhere;
even though I know it’s true,
there are those who do not care!!

So, let me tell you Momma,
What I’m fighting for;
It’s worth “all” cost, e-v-e-n- w-a-r!!!
