U.S.Reps Hold News Conf. On Expediting Withdrawal Of Troops From Afghanistan

via Weasel Zippersc

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said Wednesday that she would soon introduce legislation that would cut federal funding to any state that doesn’t require neighborhood watch programs to register with police.

Jackson Lee said her Justice Exists for All Act is a response to the trial of George Zimmerman, who was found not guilty of murder and manslaughter charges after shooting 17-year old Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman was the neighborhood watch coordinator in the Florida neighborhood where the shooting took place.

“We will … decrease the incidence of gun violence resulting from vigilantes by reducing by 20 percent the funds that would otherwise be allocated… to any state that does not require local neighborhood watch programs to be registered with a local [law] enforcement agency,” Jackson Lee said on the House floor.

She said her bill would also use the threat of less federal money to entice states to change their “stand your ground” laws. Jackson Lee said her bill would only allow states to avoid a cut if their laws are amended to include a “duty to retreat.”

“For states that do not require a duty to retreat, we will question their federal funding and assess their Justice Department funding and reduce it by 20 percent,” she said. She was not specific about what the change might mean for state laws.ccccccc

  1. Duty to retreat? Fuck you , You gawd damn Obama Whore. We will withhold funding from you , the federal government and you can go to hell! You work for us , we are not children to be punished by being grounded or having our allowance cut off. You can Suck my rebel dick!

  2. Hell all she would have to do is look at a criminal and they would be scared to death…. Her, feinstein, pelosi all look like brides of frankenstein……

  3. I am offended that you would slander the honor of such a fine upstanding member of the Scientific community. I will defend the honor of Victor von Frankenstein and his grandson Fredrick. please refrain from slandering such honorable monsters

  4. cut yourself out of society.. that would be a tremendous favor to your constituents and stop being an oxygen thief. You also suffer from the belief that money is the only motive.. pitiful.

  5. HEY! Citizens of TEXAS! WHY HAVE YOU NOT ALREADY RECALLED THIS P.O.S. I live in a Stand Your Ground State. I will still stand my ground no matter what their BS laws state. I have EVERY RIGHT to defend myself and my family and I WILL NOT retreat in the face of a criminal violating my rights to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness!

  6. WE the people have moral and sense to protect our own regardless of the color of our skin..stand your ground is to protect you and your family from harms way most of us pays to give to……..wonder? Would she change her mind if she knew the truth….no….of course not… Texas no-way

  7. Sheila, 94% of black shooting's are done by black people. Maybe you should use your position to pass more law's on putting these people behind bars where they belong. Also educate your people on how to raise their children. I'm not retreating from anyone, black or white if my life is threatened. We don't have the comforts of having armed guards everywhere we go, like you and Obummer, so you can bite me where the sun don't shine,

  8. She's an entitlement queen in a position of entitlement. She waits for hours every January since 2010 in the isle of the House before the SOTU starts just to praise the marxist as he comes in. If the day ever does come that Houston fires her useless ass, she'll pull that golden race card and cry foul in the elections. Hell it'll be funny if Capitol police have to forcefully remove her from the grounds!

  9. Her constituents like her. She is a representative, not a sentator and her district(s) are majority black.

  10. This wasn't a stand your ground case, it was a self defense case. I'd say this woman is mentally handicapped, but that would be a slap in the face for people who are mentally handicapped.

  11. Just laugh…. stand your ground was not even used on the zimmerman case. People need to educate themselves. I tell ya what the law is there to protect the United States citizens take it away and our protest will be bigger than the Trayvon marches. The only people keeping this going are the media and government. So let's work on bringing this country back together and show the government that they work for us…

  12. she's a total idiot like Pelosi she wants to retreat that's fine americans don't retreat maybe black folks do not the whites they should kick her black ass out of congress.

  13. Sheila – Advice from another Sheila – All Police Departments are under funded. Where are they going to come up with the resources to babysit all neighborhood watch groups. Get real! And I hate to hurt your feelings Zimmerman was acquitted. So, where is your rational that neighborhood watch groups need a baby sitter? And why are you not more appreciative to the gun violence that has been prevented thanks to the hard work of the men and woman that are willing to go out and report crimes that they are seeing being committed that ultimately are cutting down on neighborhood crimes and saving lives. And it is not the vigilantes doing the shooting. And lets not mix the facts in the Zimmerman case. He was the one ATTACKED and had to defend himself. So, let me get this straight. In your mind it is not o.k. to watch someone to make sure they are not up to something bad, but, it is o.k. to attack someone to the ground and beat them in the face and head because they were being watched. There is a difference between shooting someone in self defense then just shooting someone. Zimmerman did not just walk up and start shooting. And I have yet to hear of any vigilante that did that.

  14. On average 7000 blacks are killed in gun violence each year.94% are killed by other blacks.Only 426 by all other races. So it seems so simple to me. Ban all blacks from possessing firearms

  15. She has lost her mind. I defended this country so we could have the right for it to be free. I WILL NOT BACK DOWN OR RETREAT FROM SOME IDIOT that is trying to rob me, hurt my family or friends or trying to steal something from me. I will do the honorable thing and call 911 for them….. She is another instance of these idiots in office that have forgotten that they work for us, our tax money pays their salary and they are supposed to represent us. I am sorry, I am not racist but she needs to look at statistics as to who is breaking the law the most.

  16. Its funny to me that he was found not guilty fir self defense, how is that vigalante? It's called the right to bare arms, the right to defend yourself with the use if deadly force. I don't agree with shooting a kid, but he was justified. Get over it and instead of taking up for the un disclipined kids of this generation, start teaching them that nobody in the real world is going to take thier bullshit.

  17. Tell ya what, Sheila: Go ahead and push hard for that law. Every stupid thing you do brings more Texans into the nationalist camp. Soon we will have the majority we need to leave your constitutionally-challenged tyranny of the minority.

  18. Dave Smith , save it Dave. These idiots are clueless. If ya threw the forest at them, they'd still miss the trees.

  19. Mike I find your offensive language PERFECT. Hits it right where it belongs right between her racist liberal socialistic eyes. How in the hell did she get elected in TX? She sounds like shes from Kalifornication sleeping with Max Waters, Pelosi, Feinstein Boxer and the rest of the Destroyers of the USA!!!!

  20. I THINK WE NEED TO ALL BE LIKE MIKE …..AND STAND UP AND FREAKING YELL CUS IF WE DONT WE WILL BE TAKEN OVER BY IDIOTS LIKE THIS BLACK WOMAN WHO IS RACIST AS HELL ….I WOULD LIKE TO BASH HER HEAD ON THE SIDEWALK AND SEE IF SHE WOULD SHOOT ME SINCE SHE WANTS TO TAKE AWAY STAND YOUR GROUND LAWS !!!!!!

  21. Shelia Jackson Lee is nothing more than a Bully Thug. She sucked up to the Negroes and makes them think she really cares. She's nothing more than a media hound. Her actions will have absolutely no merit other than nuisance value.

  22. with all the crime the law abiding is far from asleep – all races included – you leaders are on a very very short leash right now – first of all no thug deserves welfare or section 8 rent – only to commit crimes go to the pen at 50,000 a piece per year per thug – all races included – we are done with the treason as crime skyrockets every city usa – this is clearly treason to the law abiding tax payer – and shoes thrown over powerlines proves racism goes further where shoes are thrown over powerlines – every city usa – so if you want rights and equal – it better be law abiding – do you actually think the paying tax payer is going to take anymore – you are sadly mistaken – biz doesant want your high crime areas – people that are law abiding stuck in the hood doesant want you either.

  23. I think a State by State, full blown tax strike would be in order. Maybe some boycotts of places who side with Sheila the sellout! She has no Constitutional right to even recomend this garbage. The jury spoke! Get over it you dimbulb! Sheila isn't concerned about black on black crime because it doesn't promote the false charge of rascism.

  24. They should cut the pay for all these idiot officals….jus saying!!!!!!That would make a hell of alot more sence!

  25. Does anyone Want to tell Sheila Jackson Lee that TEXAS is a state that has a "STAND YOUR GROUND LAW". So let me get this straight, she wants to cut Money to her own State? WOW, she is so smart!

  26. God, why do they not just STFU. As a group they are dumber than dumb. The trail is over, maybe we should be discussing your groups position on O. J. Simpson. That one you all were so verbal about your boy's innocence, when the whole friggin world knows he killed those two people. You did not as a group say one word about that jury though,.You people are just plain F O S.

  27. Typical mind set of this administration, using federal money to make an attempt to control something or somone…this woman is pure stupid…..and we all know you cant fix that.

  28. Sharon, I was thinking the same thing about two of the statements above, and I could not click "like," as much as I would like to, because I was in agreement with all, but the crude language.

  29. didn't she ask NASA for a picture of the flag the astronaut's left on Mars. Then called the NASA people racist for pointing out that the flag was on the moon , not Mars. (to lazy to google it my self).

  30. didn't she ask NASA for a picture of the flag the astronaut's left on Mars. Then called the NASA people racist for pointing out that the flag was on the moon , not Mars. (to lazy to google it my self).

  31. Mike said what thousands of us wanted to say and didn't have the guts, like me always looking for the sugar coating.Thanks Mike for your fair and balanced comment!

  32. That's because they volunteer out of the kindness of their hearts & their concern for others! They are not overpaid twits that up to date have done nothing for Texas like yourself. Who in hell votes for this woman & why?

  33. Hey isn't threatening to reduce and/or cut off funding if they do not do what she wants "EXTORTSION" and/or 'BLACKMAIL"–Wow useing a criminal means to act against another is no different then the fucking protestors that dsestroyed and hurt people–Commit a crime to protest a crime…..Real good logic there people.

  34. SHE IS ABSOLUTELY THE DUMBEST BLACK WOMAN I HAVE EVER SEEN.I CAN'T BELIEVE SOME OF THE STUFF THAT COMES OUT OF HER MOUTH.SHE IS THE BIGGEST RACIST IN US HISTORY.I CAN'T BELIEVE SHE GETS RE-ELECTED EVRY TERJUST GOES TO SHOW YOU HOW IGNORANT SOME AMERICANS ARE.

  35. Sheila pass a law that cities like " If the media will not report the huge amount of black on black violent crime,. In Chicago and other large cities We will force Al Sharpton to spend a weekend there WITHOUT his body gaurds." That will KILL 3 birds with one law……black on black violent crime not noticed…. putting the spotlight where the most violence is at AND well Al Sharpton

  36. Sharon Warren Richardson… sorry if Mike's language offends you; but his message is spot on. Perhaps you should address the outrageous proposal of the clueless race baiting Jackson with the same vigor

  37. time for us the people to clean house of these people that think like her. as said they work for us not the other way around. and if you do not like it move to some piss ass country were they think like that.

  38. When the government cannot get there way they alwaz resort to threatening to take federal funding away from what ever state does not comply,,, Just another reason why we should get rid of the ties to the federal government and disattach ourselves completely away from them and there threats.

  39. Derrick Mike I offended some people in one of my Groups the otherday with my Language but I dont care anymore.Sometimes we need to express our opion in this matter to get our Point Across

  40. Way to Go mike you wrote what we all feel. We are all tired of these dumb fucks pretending like they are educated and know what is best for us. Sheila has been sucking off of the state forever. What are her qualifications? She lives where she is surrounded by blacks and Anglos who love to kiss p to blacks.

  41. With CCW and stand your ground laws being the norm rather than the exception throughout this great country, the exceptions being liberal strongholds like NYC, DC, Chicago, in other words, areas with the highest crime rates, it seems Free Americans don't want what you and your progressive tribe are selling, Sheila. Go live in inner city DC without guards or guns and see how you like it.

  42. I think Obama would like for us to do the time for the black individuals so it will not see that there are so many of them in jail. How do we keep them out of Jail I don't know and neither does Obama. No one knows.

  43. Sharon Warren Richardson Much current linguistic research would disagree. It has been found that those who never use 'offensive' or 'swear' language are perceived by the majority of people as less sincere, or even deceptive. In short, cuss more and you sound more genuine to more people. This research has been published (and is practiced by) social psychologist and language expert James W. Pennebaker.

  44. just more bullshit for none white people cause the stand your ground law is only for blks anyway cause if you stand your ground and your white the blks call it murder not self defence and then you violated there civil rites then you have assholes like jesse jackson and al sharpton telling the blks to riot and we don't need that shit anymore either, its time for the tax payers to just stop working and see what the goverment does when they don't get there pay checks then maybe just maybe the goverment will shut the hell up and stop spending money we don't have, I know this will never happen but it is a thought.

  45. Mary McCarty She must have lost her mind when she was finally freed from the slavery she claims she experienced.

  46. So is that some kind of liberal solution? Don't like guns, register them! Don't like neighbourhood watch, register it!
    How does registering do anything? is it meant to discourage people from running a neighbourhood watch program?

  47. She just needs more money to go to welfare. Another law that will take away rights from the honest American people.

  48. She is obviously too stupid to get it, the stand your ground law had NOTHING to do with the Zimmerman trial. It was simply self defense. Race also had nothing to do with it. These idiots make it too easy to guess their IQ level when they spit out words like racism and stand your ground.

  49. What kind of retard is she? Zimmerman couldn't retreat, he was laying on the ground with Trayvon on top of him, beating his head against the ground. Where was he suppose to retreat too? Had this been a black man that was set free, she'd be cheering that the stand your ground law was a good thing and that justice was served. Enough of this shit.

  50. Sharon Warren Richardson . Unfortunately the blacks only understand the language Mike uses though it may be offensive, she would be more attracted tto his comment than one of kindness. It's their trait and until they better themselves we have to speak their language.

  51. This Rep. is not Representing the US. I am sure that if one would look into her personal areas that we would find she supports left wing ideas too.
    It is sad because it has came down to race and it started on the Hill. By not representing the county and instead getting paid off.

  52. @Mike Crowson – Your failure to control yourself or use of offensive language, is probably a by product of the education you received at North Garland High School. And all this time I thought N. Garland had a bit more class than Garland HS.

  53. […] another example of the tyranny of the Fed trying to control the states via the purse strings. Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee Filing Bill To Cut Funding To Any State That Doesn?t Change ?Stand Your … Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said Wednesday that she would soon introduce legislation […]

  54. The service they all will need is a good reliable server that can provide bandwidth and disk space, lots of it. Plugins for Everything – Speaking of plugins, there are plugins for almost everything for your free business website. And storage, you can control it and would always love to use as little of it as possible.

  55. Duty to retreat? Fuck you , You gawd damn Obama Whore. We will withhold funding from you , the federal government and you can go to hell! You work for us , we are not children to be punished by being grounded or having our allowance cut off. You can Suck my rebel dick!

  56. Sounds just like odumbo and Ms. Hobumbo. They will try anything to try and make it illegal to defend ourselves. Well guess what even without stand your ground I will still take my chances to be convicted in court by 12 of my peers if I ever have to shoot anyone trying to harm any of my family or myself or my friends or my home or my car, dog, cat, or anything that is mine. Keep your hands and actions to yourself and I’ll keep my lead in the chamber. Woman go to Shacago aka Chicago and check out how many kneegrows killed each other last weekend. Last I heard it 6 & 0 for the kneegrows.

  57. Why can’t they just leave all of this alone and let it all die down? This is getting way out of hand. All you hear about is Trayvon this and Trayvon that. Maybe if they would focus asking God to help make this a better world instead of creating riots and causing more pain and heartache for many other families this would just become a lesson for many people. I pray for all of the families involved. It’s a no win situation for anyone.

  58. Blackmail is defined as a crime involving a threat for purposes of compelling a person to do an act against his or her will, or for purposes of taking the person’s money or property. Not only is this blackmail but in the Martin/Zimmerman case, Zimmerman retreated. He went back to his car. At the point in time that he used deadly force, he could not retreat as he was having his head bashed in.

  59. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a
    colleague who was conducting a little homework on this.
    And he actually bought me dinner because I stumbled upon it
    for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending time to discuss
    this issue here on your website.
