Steve King Wants To Bar The Supreme Court From Hearing Marriage Cases

Welcome to a tea party-America.

“Instead of the usual separation of powers we’re all used to, where legislators pass laws and the Supreme Court is allowed to rule on challenges to those laws, Rep. Steve King (R-Hateville) has introduced legislation barring marriage cases from being heard by the Supreme Court.”

This is what we can expect from the extremist tea party crazies: Nullify a branch of the government if they don’t like what the branch may or may not do. King has company with four other tea party idiots: Ted Cruz, Louie Gohmert, Ted Yoho, and Jeff Duncan.

Viva la KKK!

Kochs Anoint Scott Walker As The Chosen One For 2016

“The billionaire primary appears to be over and a winner declared. (drum roll….)

All hail Scott Walker!”

Why? Walker is a “proven” Koch puppet — that’s why!

Kochs’ acquisition of the Republican Party nearly complete

“The Koch brothers’ takeover of the Republican Party is very nearly complete, and if they have their way, it will be by the end of 2016. They’ve anointed the five presidential candidates that are their finalists and they’ve got their plan in place for getting one of them elected, along with a Republican Senate.”

The Koch’s have spent billions setting up this takeover over a long time now, with the coup de grâce spending set for the 2016 election.

By Immense Coincidence, GOP Benghazi Probe Scheduled to Finish Up During Height of 2016 Hillary Campaign

“The findings of a Republican-led committee investigating Hillary Clinton’s response to the deadly 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, likely will not be released until next year, just months before the 2016 presidential election.”

This is no surprise! That was Trey Gowdy’s mandate when given the assignment by John Boehner a year ago.

Politician Tasked With Oil Industry Oversight Gets a Paycheck From Big Oil

“In Louisiana, where many politicians rely on oil and gas companies to fill their campaign coffers (and keep their constituents employed), environmental consequences often take a back seat to business concerns. But sometimes, things go even further. Take the case of Republican state Sen. Robert Adley — the vice-chair of the committee on environmental quality and the chair of the transportation committee (which oversees levees) — who played a leading role in trying to stop a local levee board from suing oil companies for damages related to coastal erosion. As Tyler Bridges reported for the Louisiana investigative news site The Lens, Adley doesn’t just go to bat for oil companies — he works for them as a paid consultant. He even launched his own oil company while serving as a state representative, and he didn’t cut ties to the company until nine years into his stint in the senate.”
