Happy Friday!

The Guardian is reporting that they have documentation that the NSA listened in on the calls of at least 35 world leaders. Keeping on this same thought pattern, NSA leaker, Edward Snowden reveals that the NSA has a record of every phone call made in the USA.

Health and Human Services chief Kathleen Sebelius says that she doesn’t work for the people who want her to resign.

Harry Reid (D-NV) has some very important information for you, and I bet this will be news to you. Harry Reid says, “Everybody” is “willing to pay more” taxes. He also says that there is no way the Democrats will compromise on social security or Medicaid reform – the only option is for Republicans to negotiate a larger budget to help solve our money woes. But it’s the Republicans who get blamed for not negotiating? That makes no sense…

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes plays the KKK card on the Tea Party… literally. Getting called a racist for believing in lower taxes, less spending and smaller government is getting really old. Personally, I’m not white and I love minority ethnicities… but I also happen to be a conservative. Not A Racist.

In case you missed it, here’s Alan Grayson (D-FL) also calling us racists…

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) believes that the Republican Party is facing its defining moment.

The Republican establishment is where the money is, and the money is ready to make the Tea Party sorry for working against it. This Republican family squabble could get messy if the moderate establishment turns on the Tea Party. The establishment seems to be banking on conservatives staying with the Republican Party if they can push the conservatives out… but I wouldn’t bet on that. Conservatives are already angry and if the Republican Party works to hurt conservatives directly… that may be the end of our partnership.
