Y’all remember how the former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid — boy that sounds awesome — can I type it again? The FORMER Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid — such a calming feeling.

Ok, break time over.

Remember all Reid’s tirades about the “un-American” Koch Brothers and how they were using their money to destroy America? If you recall, we wrote how the villainous Koch Brothers were funding scholarship programs for the United Negro College Fund. Well, the liberal progressive counterpart is quite telling.

As reported by The Washington Times, “There’s a solitary man at the financial center of the Ferguson protest movement. No, it’s not victim Michael Brown or Officer Darren Wilson. It’s not even the Rev. Al Sharpton, despite his ubiquitous campaign on TV and the streets. Rather, it’s liberal billionaire George Soros, who has built a business empire that dominates across the ocean in Europe while forging a political machine powered by nonprofit foundations that impacts American politics and policy, not unlike what he did with MoveOn.org. “

“Mr. Soros spurred the Ferguson protest movement through years of funding and mobilizing groups across the U.S., according to interviews with key players and financial records reviewed by The Washington Times. In all, Mr. Soros gave at least $33 million in one year to support already-established groups that emboldened the grass-roots, on-the-ground activists in Ferguson, according to the most recent tax filings of his nonprofit Open Society Foundations.”

“The financial tether from Mr. Soros to the activist groups gave rise to a combustible protest movement that transformed a one-day criminal event in Missouri into a 24-hour-a-day national cause celebre.”

So of course this is a story you won’t hear on mainstream media. And imagine what would be said if an individual were funding millions to the Constitutional Conservative grassroots movement to riot and protest (not that those folks ever do of course). Who exactly are the radicals and extremists?

Where is the outcry from Reid and the leftist progressives about this perversion of political money?

Once again, liberal hypocrisy is in full bloom. It never ceases to amaze me how there are rules for the GOP, rules for conservatives and no rules for progressive socialists.

Omnibus stalled by nearly 100 House GOP policy riders, Reid says

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Tuesday that House Republicans are pushing to add nearly 100 different policy riders to the omnibus spending bill, stalling it shortly before Thursday’s deadline.

Reid said he is prepared to vote on a short-term funding bill to keep the government open beyond Dec. 11, when it is scheduled to expire.

“The federal government is going to run out of money in two days. There’s no reason the government should shut down,” he told reporters.
Reid said he would keep the upper chamber in as long as needed to finish its work.

“Maybe we’ll have to work the weekend and maybe even work next week. I know that’s tough duty for everybody but we may have to do that,” he said.

“I think that there’s a very, very good chance we’ll be here this weekend,” he added.

Reid said he would be “happy to vote for” a short-term funding measure to keep the government open beyond Dec. 11 if the omnibus isn’t ready in time but expressed hope that would not be necessary.

Senate Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) gave a presentation to colleagues at a lunch meeting Tuesday detailing some of the policy riders emerging from the House.

“Sen. Mikulski has done a remarkably good job. She did such a good job in the caucus explaining what she’s been through with the nearly 100 riders that she’s had to try to fight off,” Reid said.

They include proposals to overturn the District of Columbia’s legalization of marijuana and to soften the 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform bill.

Reid said, however, the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act, which Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) have been negotiating over, will likely not be included in the massive spending bill.

“I don’t think TRIA is going to be in the omnibus,” he said.

If Republicans add language to halt the District of Columbia’s decision to legalize marijuana, Reid said Senate Democrats would have a hard time stripping it out even though he personally opposes what the House is trying to do.

“I have had conversations with the Congresswoman that represents the District and I’m opposed to what the House is trying to do. If they put it in there it’s going to be hard to take it out over here,” he said.

Other must-pass items include the annual defense authorization bill and a package extending expired tax provisions.

Reid said he would file cloture on the defense bill Tuesday, likely setting up a vote Thursday to end an expected filibuster of the bill. That would slate a final vote for either Thursday or Friday.

The Democratic leader said he would schedule a vote on a one-year extension of tax provisions after dealing with the omnibus and defense legislation.

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) is pushing for a longer-term tax package that would include a permanent extension of charitable tax breaks.

But Reid sees little chance of passing it.

“I think it’s going to be hard to get any new legislation up. We have stuff we have to work through,” he said.

“Sen. Wyden made a presentation in the caucus today. People know what’s in that charitable donations thing the House has. [If] there’s a way to get it up, we will,” he added.

MORE GENTLE GIANTS IN ACTION: Three Teens Fatally Shot 22-Year-Old Woman, Say ‘They Just Needed Money for Milk’ for a Baby

LAS VEGAS – A report released by Metro Police said the victim killed in an apparent random armed robbery on Nov. 11 refused to give the robbers her belongings.

According to the police report, the three suspects followed 22-year-old Laura Ashley McKinney and here friend as they walked home from work along Simmons Street near Vegas and North Rancho drives.

The police report said all of the suspects wore hoodies. However, the man in the red hoodie, reportedly yelled “Hey.” That’s when McKinney and her friend found him holding a gun.

The red-hooded man then said, “You guys have five seconds to give me everything you guys have?”

McKinney’s friend said, as the suspect counting down from five, she immediately reached in her bag to give them her belongings.

The witness said she noticed McKinney wasn’t handing over her belongings.

The man in the hoodie then said, “Oh, you think it’s a game?” and then he shot McKinney, according to the police report.

The witness told police after McKinney was shot she fell to the ground and the suspects ran away, towards townhomes in the 1900 block of Simmons St.

The witness said she knelt down next to McKinney and applied pressure to where McKinney was shot, while also screaming for help. Two others eventually came over.

The arrest report said police said the people who came over to help were instrumental in giving a description of the suspects that they saw running away from the scene to the police.

Officers said on Nov. 21 they received a call from Joseph Abrams who told them they knew an associate by the name of My-Son McNair who wanted to turn himself in for the shooting death of McKinney.

A day later, McNair turned himself in to Metro Police and told them everything that happened — along with how he and his friends initially planned to “rob a drunk leaving a bar,” so that they could get money to buy some milk for his goddaughter.

Nineteen-year-old McNair said he was about 10 feet behind the other suspects when McKinney was shot. He said they all took off and ran into the nearby apartment complex where they ditched their hoodies and jeans, the arrest report said.

McNair said he then hopped on a bus at Lake Mead Boulevard and Simmons Street. When he returned to his goddaughter’s home, one of the other men involved in the shooting was there and he still had one of the victim’s wallets.

McNair said the wallet just had some change in it. That was the last time he claimed he saw the wallet.

A second suspect, Daivion Moore, 19, was arrested on Nov. 26.

Both Moore and McNair were booked into the Clark County Detention Center.

They face charges of murder with a deadly weapon, battery with a deadly weapon, attempted robbery with a deadly weapon, and conspiracy to commit robbery.

A third suspect, known as “Man-Man,” remains on-the-run, according to police.

He’s described as a black man between the ages of 17 and 20, weighs 120-140 pounds and is between 5’2” to 5’5” tall.

Anyone who has any information on the identity or whereabouts of “Man-Man”, or anyone who has information about the shooting, is urged to contact the LVMPD Homicide Section at 702-828-3521, or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.

Revolt against Reid

Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri told reporters Thursday she would not vote for Sen. Harry Reid as the Democratic leader as the party heads into the minority.

“I will not,” she responded when asked whether she will vote for the Nevada Democrat.

Her comments came as she was entering the Old Senate Chamber, where Democrats are holding their leadership elections.

She did not respond to reporters when asked why, but she has criticized Reid over the years for not doing more to reach agreements with Republicans.

Several other Democrats ran from Reid on the campaign trail, but no Democrat has emerged to challenge his leadership.

On Wednesday night, sources said Reid might add Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts to his leadership team. Democratic Senate candidate Rick Weiland had urged senators to back Warren as a potential successor to Reid.

REPORTS: OBAMA REJECTED GOP OFFER ON IMMIGRATION REFORM

An offer by congressional Republicans to work on immigration reform in January was flatly rejected by President Barack Obama, reports said Friday

By Cathy Burke

An offer by congressional Republicans to work on immigration reform in January was flatly rejected by President Barack Obama, reports said Friday.

At a post-midterm election lunch and meeting that lasted two hours, House Speaker John Boehner warned Obama not to take executive action to stem deportations or allow a flood of new immigrants to enter the country, the Washington Examiner reports.

“The speaker warned that unilateral action by the president on executive amnesty will erase any chances of doing immigration reform and will also make it harder for Congress and the White House to work together successfully on other areas where there might otherwise be common ground,” a spokesman told the newspaper.

Instead, Boehner asked Obama to let Republicans work on reforming and modernizing immigration early in the new session, Wyoming Republican Sen. John Barrasso told Reuters.

According to Reuters, an unnamed congressional source said Vice President Joe Biden asked Boehner how long he needed to pass a bill: “Feb. 15? March 15?” The source said Obama was visibly irritated and stopped Biden.

But a Democratic congressional source disputed that account, telling the news service, “At no time did the President cut off the Vice President.” The source described Obama as “courteous and firm” during the immigration discussion.

Afterward, Maryland Democrat Rep. Steny Hoyer told CNN Obama’s right to move ahead with immigration reform, saying: “Families are being wrenched apart, children are being left without a parent or parents, and that is unacceptable. But he also made it very clear that if the Congress acted, that would be the law, that would be the preferable option that he wants.”

Reuters said the lunch with congressional leaders was “somber and slightly uncomfortable during a brief 4-minute photo op,” with Obama squeezed between Boehner and Nevada Democrat Sen. Harry Reid, who’ll give up his title as Senate majority leader in the new Congress because of the wave of Republicans who’ve swept Democrats from power.
