This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

No Oil Zone Rebellion Part 2 - In A Matter Of Hours

~Snooper~

The "alleged stunt" pulled by the Conservative Elements of the GOP on 01 AUG 08 is scheduled to resume in a matter of hours and we at the Conservative Consortium of bloggers and Blog Talk Radio hosts - now known as the Main Street Media - will resume coverage and support to those brave souls that have FINALLY called Pelosi and her sycophant Nazi hacks out.

What the libtards aren't revealing - because they are liars and cowards - is the real stunt was pulled by Jack Booted Nazi Pelosi when she turned the liights off, had the cameras turned off and kicked the alleged Free Press out so the American People wouldn't witness what was going on. As is customary when the CONgress adjourned is everyone gives a few minute speech prior to leaving the House. Nazi Nanny didn't want that made public. And, we all know why. So does Czarbama...that is why he has flopped his flip on offshore drilling.

Macsmind:
We've waited a long time for Republicans to get this kind of backbone [...] [...] Leadership is standing with your people so Boehner and Blunt had better have their rear ends in attendance. Nevertheless, this is a battle the Democrats are sure to lose. More than 70 percent of the American people want something done about gas prices and after Friday they are sure to know that the Democrats couldn’t be bothered. [...]
Roger that and exactly so. Image above credit goes to Gateway Pundit and the verbiage credit goes to Macsmind.

Think Like An Imbecile:
Just as they did last Friday, a group of House Republicans will engage in political theater on the floor tomorrow, staging a fake session on gas prices. Congress adjourned last week, but some conservatives remained behind to clamor in the dark chamber for a vote on oil drilling. Politico reports that "Republicans felt they got a lot of good press out of Friday's 'revolt,' so they will be back at it again." [...]
Listen to the libtards squeal ladies and gentlemen, listen to them squeal! The GOP has the DNC socialists boxed into a corner with no way out, at least a clean way out. They then went on to mention the "record profit" thing but failed to mention the "record taxes paid" thing to the tune of $30,000,000,000.00. That's $30 BILLION paid in taxes. What a bunch of lying sacks of crap these libtards are.

Jared Bernstein opines and exposes itself as the usual Leftinistra dweeb with a complete and total lack of understanding. It also has no knowledge of ECO101. We have heard this same trash-crap jibberish for nearly 40 years and it never changes. Poor thing. In essence, paraphrased - utilizing the usual 3-year old style of whiny voice - "we won't see anything for 10 years". Idiot.

Politico reporting:
Continuing with their guerrilla tactics from last week, House Republicans will be back on the floor Monday to talk gas prices, even though Congress is in recess, and they may stay there all week. [...]
And we all know how guerrilla tactics work, don't we? Press Release from John Boehner's Office:
Washington, Aug 3 - House Republicans will be back on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives again Monday to continue the unprecedented protest that began last Friday, when dozens of Republicans joined hundreds of American citizens on the House floor to protest Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) decision to send Congress home for the rest of the summer without a vote on legislation to lower gas prices and move America toward energy independence.

In an urgent memo sent to GOP Members and staff Saturday ("A Call to Action on American Energy"), Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) and Whip Roy Blunt (R-MO) hailed Friday's action, which was led by Reps. Mike Pence (R-IN), Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA), Tom Price (R-GA), and others, and encouraged House Republicans to return to the Capitol beginning Monday morning to help keep the historic effort going.

"It's not a request we make lightly. But the American people are suffering," Boehner and Blunt said in the memo. "The consequences of continued congressional inaction on gas prices are unacceptable. We've called on the Speaker to call Congress back into an emergency session this month and schedule a vote on the American Energy Act. We must continue to make a stand until the Speaker complies."

"We realize not everyone can be in Washington next week. But if you can be, we ask that you come to the Capitol, join our colleagues, and lend your voice, beginning this Monday at 10:00 am," the GOP leaders wrote. "If you can't be in Washington, we ask that you contribute to the cause in other ways - such as spreading the word among your constituents, writing an op-ed for your local newspaper, or taking our 'all of the above' energy message to your local airwaves."

"Republicans stand with the American people. We share their passion and determination for energy independence, and we've pledged to fight boldly until Congress heeds their will," Boehner and Blunt concluded.
And we will be covering this. BTR hosts will be covering this as will many conservative bloggers and our own Sonlit Knight will be traveling to DC like he did last Friday.

Atlas Shrugs has a few choice words to say as well so, go there and check them out. In the meantime, she has this:
[...] UPDATE: I looooooooove what msd suggested in the comment section of this post, "McCain - no matter who Obama picks, you need to start calling it the Obama-Pelosi ticket with Harry in waiting"

How right you are. The Obambots have no compunction about calling it the Bush McCain ticket (which is hilarious considering how they differ on any number of issues except the surge - which worked!). Obama Pelosi is puuuuuuuuuuuuuurfect. [...]
Can you imagine that? Talk about the Three Stooges!

SmolderingCurPuddle: (I got a chuckle out of this because, well - because...)
[...] Fortunately the compromise bill does have some decent stuff in it, though it's all too minor to do much good. But the underlying refusal to really get down to business, operate in the real world and tackle problems head on remains disheartening and the thing that makes one fear for America's future the most. You can't solve problems if you live in a fantasy world. Drilling won't lower energy prices just as attacking Iraq was the equivalent of a guy being punched by Osama but deciding to hit Saddam because hey, he doesn't duck as well. [END]
Poor things. They can smell defeat. And yes, defeat is right around the corner. Perfect. I hope they enjoy that Abyss of Obscurity.

Klaus Marre has always been good for a rip-roaring guttural guffaw from time to time and this is one of those times: Pelosi rips GOP's energy tactic -- this is just too funny...
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday maintained a hard-line stance against offshore drilling and said GOP efforts on the floor to push her toward a vote was "war dance of the hand maidens of the oil companies." [...]
I heard this on the show circuits and played the clips on my show today. Pelosi is an idiot and this is her way to distract from the fact that she lied her way into office by promising the American People lower fuel prices as part of her campaign stumping. It has doubled under her command. Every financial downturn took place under her command. Her House has the lowest approval ratings in history and that took place under her command. Would you trust someone with a history of failed policies such as hers? I didn't think so.

A Blog For All:
The GOP has a golden opportunity to crush the Democrats over their refusal to debate a future American energy policy. House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi scurried away from her responsibility to the American people on Friday by adjourning the house for a five-week vacation at a time when most Americans are struggling to cope with high energy costs and the inability to afford five weeks of vacation (indeed, most folks do not get five weeks of vacation through their employers). [...]
We will crush them - bank it. A good read is found at mm.com.

The whining Leftinistra can whine all they want to but what is taking place is Democracy In Action and that is what they cannot stand. It is not up to Congress to dictate to the American People. The vast majority of the American People are DEMANDING lower fuel costs and Nazi Nanny refuses to allow it. This is unacceptable. The issue here is two-fold. Nanny is telling the American People to shut up. The American People are demanding to drill. In accordance to our Constitution, what is Nazi Nanny supposed to do?
