Whore Of Babylon-By-The-Bay Turns Off Lights, Microphones, Cameras In People's House -- Expels Press

Queen 9% was not amused when Republicans tried to block adjournment and refused to leave the House floor after the Democrats irresponsibly voted for a 5-week paid vacation for themselves but not for an energy bill that would help the American people.


Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the Democrats adjourned the House, turned off the lights and killed the microphones, but Republicans are still on the floor talking gas prices.

Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) and other GOP leaders opposed the motion to adjourn the House, arguing that Pelosi's refusal to schedule a vote allowing offshore drilling is hurting the American economy. They have refused to leave the floor after the adjournment motion passed at 11:23 a.m., and they are busy bashing Pelosi and her fellow Democrats for leaving town for the August recess.

At one point, the lights went off in the House and the microphones were turned off in the chamber, meaning Republicans were talking in the dark. But as Rep. John Shadegg (R-Ariz..) was speaking, the lights went back on and the microphones were turned on shortly afterward.

But C-SPAN, which has no control over the cameras in the chamber, has stopped broadcasting the House floor, meaning no one was witnessing this except the assembled Republicans, their aides, and one Democrat, Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-Ohio), who has now left.

Democratic aides were furious at the GOP stunt, and reporters were kicked out of the Speaker's Lobby, the space next to the House floor where they normally interview lawmakers.

"You're not covering this, are you?" complained one senior Democratic aide. Another called the Republicans "morons" for staying on the floor.

Update: The Capitol Police are now trying to kick reporters out of the press gallery above the floor, meaning we can't watch the Republicans anymore.

Eventually the Republicans were able to continue their protest against the repressive tactics of Commisar Nancy Pelosi (D-Sodom and Gomorrah), ending at 5:00 PM Eastern Time, having made their point that the Democrats have refused to do the people's business and attempted to silence the people's representatives and muzzle the press. Personally, I wish they had camped out on the House floor.

Bravo for the good men and women who participated in these actions -- I can't wait to see the video begin appearing in Democrat districts around the country.

Bill -- whose actions?


The GOP's?


You really don't make a whole lot of sense there with that ambiguous pronoun antecedent.

Kudos to compassionate republicans. Pelosi and democrats are commies trying to stop freedom of speech. They should be removed. Stupid idiots.

Finally!!! I will call the RNC and renew my membership. Until this action I'd given one is standing for the hard working American taxpayer. Nancy Pelosi and her "Let them eat cake" attitude make me sick. Thanks Republican Congress, you've given me real HOPE for a CHANGE.

The 'face lift gone wrong' needed to get on her private jet to peel off her support hose, because the 2 brain cells remaining after her lobotomized, botoxed, botched up face knot were not getting enough oxygen. The aging swollen feet had to get away from the vile mass of humanity with whom she has nothing in common. 9%? She could care less if it is minus 9%!Peeelooozie is suffering from delusions and dementia!
