ms. Lee has just been identified as the House member who makes more speeches from the house floor than any other representative from Texas.  The only problem is that her speeches leave most people scratching their heads

Sheila is so brilliant.  What a worthless form of human life, too bad her mama didn't abort.

This woman who serves on the committee for HOMELAND SECURITY has blamed the attempted plot to bomb Times Square and the bombing yesterday in Boston on the seKester (sic).  The seKester(sic) is the reason in the lax security and is the only reason she has to explain how someone could have performed such a dastardly deed yesterday in Boston.  If it had not have been for the seKester then none of this would have happened.  You shouldn't be using such big words ms. lee if you can't pronounce them. From her Bio

Most recently, she was named the Member of Congress with the largest and most impressive vocabulary based on the words that may be found on the SAT. 
  Oh really.  By WHOM?


Talking about politicizing.  It's only ok for 1 side to do it and guess which side that is.  The American Way as some would say.  We need to end this seKester

Sheila has demanded a congressional hearing demanding more investigations into the Trayvon Martin death.  Forget the Benghazi investigation, we don't care about those 4 Americans that were murdered, we need another investigation going on in the do nothing Congress.  Come on Sheila, hillary told me to ask you "What difference does it make?".

Sheila has to share the stage.

The Truth-O-Meter Says:

The U.S. House rule barring members from wearing hats while in session dates back to the 1800s and can be waived by the speaker.  

Frederica Wilson on Wednesday, November 17th, 2010 in an interview for a Miami Herald blog

Congresswoman-elect Frederica Wilson says hat ban started in 1800s but can be waived

Frederica Wilson was known as the Florida state legislator who owned a massive collection of fancy hats. But when the Democrat was elected to the 17th District in Congress on Nov. 2, 2010, to represent portions of Miami-Dade and Broward counties, her fashion statement ran afoul of the rules.

We learned of Wilson's hat woes from a Nov. 17 posting in Naked Politics, a blog by the Miami Herald:

"Wilson is hoping to have a conversation with the likely new speaker, John Boehner. At issue: whether or not the longtime lawmaker can wear her signature hats on the House floor. The House bars members from wearing hats while the body is in session, but Wilson said she believes the speaker can waive the rule -- which dates to the 1800s.

'"It's sexist," Wilson said. "It dates back to when men wore hats and we know that men don't wear hats indoors, but women wear hats indoors. Hats are what I wear. People get excited when they see the hats. Once you get accustomed to it, it's just me. Some people wear wigs, or high heel shoes or big earrings or pins. This is just me."'

The blog post continued: "Wilson had to take her hat off for her official congressional picture, but plans to appeal that ruling as well. She did wear her hat on the House floor the other day -- but the House wasn't in session."

She managed to show off at least one of her hats in Washington, D.C.: she arrived for freshman orientation wearing a black cowboy hat with sequins, according to the Washington Post.

Roll Call also wrote about Wilson's hat dilemma on Nov. 4: "But while we expect Wilson to become the Hill's newest fashionista -- for better or worse, depending on who you ask -- she likely will have to ditch her trademark headpieces while she's on the House floor. Although there isn't a specific dress code, hats have been banned on the floor since September 1837. Even the late Rep. Bella Abzug (D-N.Y.) couldn't sport her trademark broad-brimmed hats when she served during the 1970s."

This is not a serious heady matter. But the Truth-O-Meter was curiously scratching its head. Was Wilson correct to say that the rule banning members from wearing hats on the House floor dates back to the 1800s? And who can waive the rule?

First, a little more colorful background about Wilson and her hats that we gleaned from a May 11, 2009, Miami Herald/St. Petersburg Times article:

"In a political universe dominated by men in dark suits, Sen. Wilson is the rainbow that cannot be ignored. She walks the halls of the Capitol flashing her custom-made, bedazzled cowboy hats and perfectly matched suits -- her own runway of eye-popping colors that are more suited to the Miami district she represents than to good ol' boy Tallahassee. Canary yellow. Five-carat turquoise. Cotton-candy pink. Cherry red. Rhinestone-studded black and gold. Here in the center of Florida's political universe, the loud wardrobe of the educator-turned-Democratic lawmaker sends a clear if unspoken message to fellow lawmakers: I am here. And attention will be paid."

We reached Wilson briefly by telephone on the morning of Nov. 19 and asked her how many hats she owns.

"I've never counted, but I've been wearing them almost 30 years," said the former Miami-Dade school board member and state legislator. "It's almost like a fetish. ... I have hundreds."

Wilson said she brought six hats to D.C. and has been researching the rules about hat wearing and still hopes to speak to Boehner about the ban. Wilson said she would get back to us regarding her research on the hat ban and who she believes can waive it, but we did not hear back.

Now let's return to our research on the hat ban. The rules of the 111th Congress -- the current one in session -- state under "Comportment":

"When the Speaker is putting a question or addressing the House, a Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner may not walk out of or across the Hall. When a Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner is speaking, a Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner may not pass between the person speaking and the Chair. During the session of the House, a Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner may not wear a hat or remain by the Clerk’s desk during the call of the roll or the counting of ballots. A person may not smoke or use a wireless telephone or personal computer on the floor of the House. The Sergeant-at-Arms is charged with the strict enforcement of this clause."

We consulted Miami Herald reporter Lesley Clark, who wrote the blog item about Wilson and covers Congress. Clark obtained a copy of historic documents kept by the House and also forwarded to us a 2009 copy of the Constitution Jefferson's Manual and Rules of the House of Representatives. That document states: "No Member is to come into the House with his head covered, nor to remove from one place to another with his hat on, nor is to put on his hat in coming in or removing, until he be set down in his place. Scob. 6. In 1837 the parliamentary practice of wearing hats during the session was abolished by adoption of current clause 5 of rule XV11."

A document from 1907 in the same link above, sheds more light: we turned to "Hinds' precedents of the House of Representatives of the United States" written by Asher Hinds who was the clerk to the speaker. That document states that the hat rule was "the fruit of considerable agitation. In early years, following the custom of Parliament, Members wore their hats during session."

That practice however was challenged when Charles F. Mercer of Virginia proposed a rule "as early as March 13, 1822: 'Nor shall any Member remain in the hall covered during the session of the house.' " Mercer's proposal wasn't adopted, but other members of Congress also proposed similar bans during the next several years. A ban proposed in 1833 was rejected because "Members would have no places in which to put their hats if they should not wear them, and also that the custom of wearing hats was a sign of independence of the Commons of England, and therefore a good usage to preserve the American House."

A historical highlights document from the House provides a short summary of the history of the hat ban. That document states that member John M. Patton of Virginia defended "the really harmless but apparently indecorous practice of wearing our hats ... Regarding then this usage as merely ‘the outward and visible sign of the inward and spiritual’ freedom of this body from all executive control or interference, let us preserve it. And whenever, if ever, our executive magistrates shall attempt to employ any improper influence on this body, let us be found with our hats on."

But on Sept. 14, 1837, the House adopted the rule banning members from wearing hats during the session or by the Clerk's table during the call of the roll.

So far, Wilson is correct: the House ban dates back to the 1800s. But she also said in the interview that she thought that the House speaker could waive the rule. She said she wanted to talk about it with Boehner, chosen by his peers to be speaker of the House when the 112th Congress convenes in January.

We contacted Boehner spokesman Michael Steel to ask if he had the power to waive the rule, if any leader could waive it, or if it requires a full vote by the House when it adopts rules in January. Steel said he didn't know the answer.

We turned to the House Practice, Assembly of Congress (Chapter 5), which includes a section on Adoption of Rules. That section states that the House can adopt its own procedural rules -- and "ordinarily the House adopts the rules of the prior Congress but with various amendments." So it appears that the House in January could adopt a new rule -- say, allowing all hats or dress hats. But this document doesn't address either way whether any leader can waive a rule.

We asked Vincent Morris, spokesman for the House rules committee. He wrote to us in an e-mail:

"Current Rules prohibit hat wearing so anyone showing up with a hat would likely be told to take it off. For the Rules to change, members would need to approve revisions when the next Congress starts in January."

So for now, it appears that Wilson will need to persuade her peers to change the rule in January. The good news for Wilson is that if she ever wins a U.S. Senate post, she won't encounter this headache.

Unlike the House, the Senate doesn't have a formal written rule banning members from wearing hats.

"People don't wear hats in the Senate," said Senate historian Donald Ritchie. "The Senate sort of adheres to an unofficial dress code but it's not specifically in the rules."

The News Service of Florida wrote Nov. 17, 2010, that "Wilson, not known for being shy, plans to tell Boehner she intends to wear hats -- not ask him for permission."

"I’m not going to ask anyone," Wilson was quoted as saying.

This would not be the first time that Wilson ran into roadblocks to her hats. When she wore Davy Crockett style hats in middle school, the dean called her father to complain, but she and her father didn't give in, the St. Petersburg Times wrote May 11, 2009. In 2002 after she was elected to the state Senate after serving in the House, a senator -- not identified in the article -- complained about her hats at a Senate retreat. (The News Service article identified that senator as Republican Anna Cowin.)

"I thought, with all these problems we have, she's worried about me wearing a hat? Well, I just smiled through it," Wilson was quoted as saying in the 2009 St. Petersburg Times article. "Sen. (Jim) King took care of it."

An aside: we wondered if the current hat ban rule would prohibit religious Jews from wearing yarmulke or Muslim women from wearing the hijab or headscarf. Steel, Boehner's spokesman, said in an e-mail: "The rule regarding hats has never been interpreted to apply to religious headcoverings."

So does the headstrong Wilson have her facts right? She is correct to state that the ban on House members wearing hats started in the 1800s -- Sept. 14, 1837, to be precise. But can Boehner or any individual "waive" the rule? It appears that the House would have to vote on a new rule in January 2011. At this point, Wilson has not provided any proof that any individual could simply waive the rule. If she provides us such proof from her research, or if Boehner later responds with evidence that he does have that power, we could revisit this topic. But for now, we rate this claim Half True.

Rep. Frederica Wilson Claims Her Constituents Eat Dog Food when Food Stamps Run Out

Posted 07.16.13 by Greg Campbell, TPNN Contributor


Calling the recent omission of food stamp spending from the farm bill “punitive and cruel,” the liberal and often oddly-hatted Democratic Representative from Florida Frederica Wilson railed against the food stamp omission and claimed that some of her constituents must eat dog food when their food stamps run out.

There is no report on whether or not these supposed constituents have considered finding additional work, turning to a food bank or asking a charity for help.

On the floor of the House, Wilson ranted against the farm bill that separated food stamp spending from farm subsidies, causing Democrats to rage against the move. Wilson claimed,

“Mr. Speaker, SNAP, Food Stamps, however you phrase it, is fundamental to the nutritional supplement to millions of Americans — black, white, feeble seniors, struggling mothers, disabled veterans and hungry children. Mr. Speaker, it was reported to me that there are seniors in my district who eat dog food when their food stamps run out. I was appalled and went to see for myself, and I was dumbfounded. I fixed the situation, but I’m sure that somewhere in America today some poor soul is relying on dog food to take them through the month. Mr. Speaker, please do not hurt or destroy what is a mainstay in the lives of so many Americans who are just trying to get by. Do not remove nutrition, including the food stamp program from the farm bill. It’s wrong, it’s punitive and it’s cruel.”

However, though her time was limited, Wilson neglected to mention the variety of other methods by which Americans feed themselves. Posturing as if food stamps are a constitutionally-guaranteed right, Wilson discusses the providing of government food stamps as an absolute essential to the continuation of life in America.

Making the rant all the more odd is the fact that dog food is often more expensive than the bare essentials of human food. With Ramen noodles hovering around two bits a pack and a five pound sack of potatoes being $2 at Walmart, it is odd that these constituents would choose dog food.

Further, CNS News reported,

“Today, July 15, at a Bravo Supermarket in Miramar, Florida, for example, a can of Alpo Prime Cuts dog food is on sale for 89 cents. Conversely, Bravo Brand vegetables are on sale for 68 cents a can; 16 oz. packages of Goya pasta are 78 cents; and bananas are 33 cents a pound.

Looking at wholesale prices at a Sam’s Club in Miramar, Florida, a 24-pack of 13.2 oz. Alpo Prime Cuts dog food is $14.98 and Pedigree Choice Cuts dog food is $16.60. At the same Sam’s Club, an 8-pack of 15 oz. cans of peas and corn is $5.88.”

Perhaps these alleged constituents should put down the Alpo and hit up Sam’s Club.

Just another example of the selfish "I am more important than others" mentality. Heaven forbid she just shut up and follow the same rules everyone else follows. No the rules have to be relaxed or changed to suit what she wants.
I suppose if they don't allow her to wear the hats she will cry racism.

IT IS SHOCKING AND SIMPLY UNACCEPTABLE THAT WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY IN WHICH AN AVERAGE OF 13 YOUNG PEOPLE FROM AGES 10-24 BECOME VICTIMS OF HOMICIDE EVERY DAY DUE TO GUN VIOLENCE

Jan 31, 2014 
Press Release
It is imperative that we come together in strong support of a broad and comprehensive strategy to address the causes and effects of youth violence, says Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, a Senior Member of the House Homeland Security and Judiciary Committees, released the following statement regarding the tragic shooting at Palm Bay campus of Eastern Florida State College and why we need more gun safety laws in America:

“There are no words to express the horror of the senseless violence today at a place that should be a safe place of learning. My heart aches as a parent and someone who visits my local universities and interacts with the students and it is hard to think of what the family of the victim must be going through. My thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the victim of this tragedy and I know everyone will come together to help the community in this time of need. It is now time to move past gun special interest and make gun laws to protect our children who are the most vulnerable.

“For over 10 years in many sessions of Congress I have introduced the HR 227, the Child Gun Safety and Gun Access Prevention Act. I have been an advocate for more gun safety laws in America since I have arrived here in Congress. In one year on average, almost 100,000 people in America are shot or killed with a gun. Over a million people have been killed with guns in the United States since 1968. U.S. homicide rates are 6.9 times higher than rates in 22 other populous high-income countries combined, despite similar non-lethal crime and violence rates. In order to promote safety for our children it is imperative this Congress brings to the House floor NOW the following gun safety laws:

  1. An immediate ban on all assault weapons
  2. The closing of the gun show loopholes
  3. A more structured mental health support system for families that will allow them to get immediate assistance in regards to mental issues. There should be some pathway in which families can acknowledge mental issues within their family and seek public funded or private counseling services immediately.
  4. Expanding state laws holding adults responsible for securing their weapons.

“This Congress must rise above partisan politics and now come together to pass important gun safety laws. The safety of America should be at the forefront when it comes to making these gun safety laws. The politics of outside groups like the NRA should not play a factor when we consider the safety of our citizens. We must also look at gun violence in other cities too such as Chicago where over the last few years a number of school age kids have been killed with guns.

“If there is even one step we can take to save another child, or another parent, or another town, from the grief that has visited Tucson, and Aurora, and Oak Creek, and Oregon and Newtown, and communities from Columbine to Blacksburg, Purdue University and now Palm Bay campus of Eastern Florida State College -- then this Congress surely has an obligation to try.”

1. an immediate ban on all assault weapons?  Why
Latest rounds of killings have been shotguns and rifles, no assault weapons.  

what a complete dipshi!t and when people like her are put in charge (the Texas definition of gerrymandering, her C-shaped district like no other, make up the hood district inside the city limits of Houston) they then stir up the other ill-informed gun grabbers as witnessed from congressman Waxman's district. 

Focus on the rules already on the books and go after those who break those rules with a fierce determination you dumbass

she is a federal representative but one of her ideas is "Expanding state laws holding adults responsible for securing their weapons."  

She needs to figure out what her role in government really is.

That would say something about her constituency.  
The remarks on the videos from her youtube appearances are all pretty much carbon copy of yours rocklifter "How do people like this even get elected to office?"  Some of the uniformed voters made so popular by the obama regime.

As a matter of fact. I was just with a friend of mine watching Duke play Syracuse.
He is an educated Black man with a degree in Electrical Engineering. His wife, also Black is a CPA for a very well respected firm outside of Atlanta. Now these also are Conservative people who wouldn't tell me who they voted for but have exclaimed they learned their lesson. So take that for what it is.....
I state this to give you this reply from them upon watching Sheila Jackson Lee's videos.
He very bluntly said the woman was a complete and utter disgrace towards anyone serving in office whether elected or not. His wife said that this is the kind of person that causes racial relations, progress, and division amongst everyone back about 75 years or more.
So it does make you go...."Exactly Who Voted for this person?" Were they living voters? Were they cognizant of what they were doing?

Please twerp, I'll do my best to keep the thread updated.  I had to go all the way back to page 4 to find it.  

I actually would see her just as stupid if she was white, or if she was a he, Pelosi would fit in this category.  She just happens to be a black female.  Nothing to do with her race or her sex, she is just an ignorant ass.  I have offered a resounding affirmation to several black females on my thread Run-Away slave, please look it up and maybe learn something.  Now I am truly sorry that Jackson-Lee happens to be a black female because she really is not equipped for the job and others may think black females are not equipped for the job.  Not what I am saying, I am saying SHE is an idiot.  Please attempt to prove me wrong

twerp, I am really only prejudiced against one demographic.  White, male, liberals serve no purpose on earth and should be castrated at birth so that they could not reproduce.  So turn me into the white, male, liberal hating task force but save your speeches for someone who gives a damn about what you think.

I didn't say she should have been aborted, I said it's too bad her mama didn't abort her, we play semantics here.  Started with what is the definition of 'is' and then perfected by the moderator of the forum.

 Of the 55 million good babies that have died, couldn't they have taken her?

"Roll back the reproductive rights of women" indeed

IT IS NOT ABOUT A WOMAN’S LIBIDO - IT IS ABOUT RESPECT, DIGNITY AND THE RIGHT TO ACCESS HEALTH CARE

Jan 24, 2014 
Press Release
Shame on the Republicans for denying women the access to health care and the right to choose, says Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, a senior Member of the House Democratic Women’s Caucus, released the following statement regarding the statement by a former Republican Governor regarding women and their libido:

“The comments yesterday by a Republican Governor about a woman’s libido were totally out of line. It is increasingly evident that the only women’s agenda that the Republicans have put forward is to take away your health care rights and then tell you to get lost. Women are sick and tired of these constant attacks on our constitutionally-protected right to choose, while priorities like equal pay, fair wages, and paid family leave go unaddressed. If Republicans in Washington have any hope of repairing their relationship with American women, they need to turn away from these anti-choice bills and start helping American women with the kitchen table issues important to them.

“Instead of putting forward a real economic agenda for women and families, Republicans are once again wasting Americans’ time, tax dollars, and patience with more attacks on women’s health. Last week, the all-male Republicans on the House Judiciary Subcommittee marked up legislation which would make sweeping restrictions on women’s health options across the country.

“Republicans next week will bring to the floor H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, at a time when more pressing bipartisan work is needed on the women’s legislative agenda.  According to the Shriver Report recently released 42 million women, and an additional 28 million children either live in or on the brink of poverty – we should be focusing on issues such as that.

“H.R. 7 is a sweeping anti-choice bill would not only deny premium tax credits to income-eligible men, women and families under the Affordable Care Act, but it would also impose unprecedented tax penalty on individuals and small business employers who use their own money to pay for abortion or insurance related to abortion coverage.

“Most importantly, H.R. 7 fails to address the need for access to abortion coverage for a woman whose health is seriously threatened by a pregnancy and may need an abortion to protect her health, but may not be in danger of imminent death.  This denial of abortion coverage will undoubtedly put some women’s health at serious risk.

“When you have a subcommittee that is 100 percent male considering legislation restricting women’s rights and denying a woman Member of Congress, Eleanor Holmes Norton, the ability to testify on that legislation, it is pretty clear what the Republicans intend to do – roll back the reproductive rights of women.

“America’s women deserve better than eight Republican men trying to dictate and control the most intimate medical decisions in their lives.  We should be holding hearings on issues that really matter to the women of this nation; our women’s economic agenda to unleash the full potential of America’s women with equal pay, paid family and sick leave, and affordable child care for all.

“Just as past generations of women have demanded equality, so too must a new generation of American women be bold.  In Congress today there are more than 60 women Members of the House Democratic Caucus – the most in history – and we are heeding the call to address the pressing issues confronting women today.”

Come on help me out here terp, you folks on the left like to say publicly that the 2nd amendment is vague on what "type" and/or amount, or size, of firearms and our right to carry or possess them and if they are protected under the 2nd amendment of the constitution blah, blah, blah.  Help me out here.

Jackson-Lee states "Women are sick and tired of these constant attacks on our constitutionally-protected right to choose".  Please show me in the constitution where the framers knew or said abortion should be a constitutionally protected right?  I find this to be actually an opposite opinion on what the framers of the constitution might have wrote.  The framers of the constitution wanted to protect the rights of women to murder the unborn for no good reason? puleeze

 Women are denied healthcare?  where? what state? what hospital? what doctors deny healthcare?

Been almost a year since a video was added of this genius.  I want to thank Lost 1 for providing it and I just now remembered to place it here.  I missed about 4 months work and was drugged during that time lol
