House Clears Path For PATRIOT ACT Extension

House Clears Path For Extension Of Government Spying On American Citizens

Two days after proposals to extend provisions of the draconian PATRIOT Act failed to attract a super majority in a fast track vote, another vote in the House of representatives has cleared the way for the smooth passage of the legislation.

Last night’s vote put in to place a new rule that will allow the legislation to be passed by just a simple majority. It is expected that the House will vote again on the legislation next week, and that it will easily pass.

Earlier in the week, House Republicans had attempted to suspend House rules and pass the extension with limited debate and no amendments. That fell 7 votes short because a 2/3rds majority was required.

Last night’s ballot saw 248 vote in favour of allowing the extension to proceed, while 176 voted against.

Just four Republicans, including Congressman Ron Paul, voted against the extension. On Tuesday 26 Republicans had voted against. The other three Republican nays were Chris Gibson (N.Y.), Raul Labrador (Idaho) and Tom McClintock (Calif.).

Several representatives who ran on a Tea Party platform of restoring civil liberties also voted in favour of the legislation, following a lecture by Homeland Security Head Janet Napolitano, who told the congressional oversight panel that the nation faces a “heightened” terror threat, the like of which has not been seen since 9/11.

Meanwhile, 172 Democrats voted against proceeding Thursday, up from the 148 who voted against the measure on Tuesday.

Excluding the 15 who voted for the extension, Democrats protested the Republican attempt to hold the vote under the “closed rule”. Rep. Sheila Jackson (D-Texas) said Republicans were practicing “unique trickery” by calling the bill back for a second vote.

“We have a right to have a voice and that voice has already been expressed,” said Lee. “What more needs to be said?”

MIDDLETOWN – The results of the city’s presidential straw poll, held Saturday night, are in — and Hillary Clinton and Ron Paul were the big winners.

The straw poll, a private event that cost $10 a ticket, benefited the Connecticut Breast Cancer Coalition. It was held at The Church of the Holy Trinity on Main Street.

The results are: First ballot: Ron Paul, 42 percent; Hillary Clinton, 30 percent; Barack Obama, 20 percent; John McCain, 2 percent; and Mitt Romney, 2 percent.

Second ballot: Paul, 42 percent; Clinton, 32 percent; and Obama, 22 percent.

Third ballot: Paul, 46 percent; Clinton, 42 percent.

 

Ron Paul wins latest Poll in Arkansas

Presidential hopeful Congressman Ron Paul won the most recent straw poll in Arkansas. The event was sponsored by the Benton County County Republican Committee.

The results came as a surprise to party insiders who played down the significance of the poll, which was used to help raise money for the party.

Here are the results:

Ron Paul 36.6%
Mitt Romney 24.6%
Mike Huckabee 21.1%
John McCain 14.0%
Rudy Giuliani 2.8%

Congressman Paul has not had to advertise in Arkansas because his Grass Roots movement is so large as evidenced by this poll. He attributes his continued success to the fact that: “People love the idea of Liberty, Prosperity and Peace.”

Even before the event had ended, the Political Spin was already starting with the other campaigns. “I think it would be wrong to over-interpret this (vote),” Benton County Republican Committee Chairman George Spence said.

Stung by the low ratings in his home state, Huckabee spokeswoman Alice Stewart said: “We’ve yet to campaign here for the Republican nomination. Once we do, we expect to see support all across the state.” These results do seem to be an indicator of things to come for former Governor Mike Huckabee as most voters in Arkansas are already familiar with his record.
Rep. Donna Hutchinson said: “I think it indicates a problem that has been below the surface that no one has talked about, a lot of Republicans are upset.”

Sen. Dave Bisbee, a former floor leader for Huckabee, failed to vote for the former Governor. This is a clear blow to the Huckabee campaign.
