    Political Outcast ^ | January 29, 2014 | Mark Horne
    I know there were much more dangerous and important things said in President Barack Obama's State of the Union address, but one relatively minor claim completely surprised and shocked me.But what I offer tonight is a set of concrete, practical proposals to speed up growth, strengthen the middle class and build new ladders of opportunity into the middle class. Some require congressional action, and I'm eager to work with all of you. But America does not stand still, and neither will I. (Applause.) So wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families,...

    Do you remember when Al Gore first brought his “man-made global warming” circus to Capitol Hill? At that time folks could almost feel his glow of self-satisfaction contributing markedly to the very warming trend he so smugly warned the world against.His movie, “An Inconvenient Truth,” become the required film de jour for all the trendy folks in the media. Schools in Europe, Britain and the US presented the movie’s contention that man is responsible, not the sun, for the planet’s warming trend, regardless of the fact that the earth has actually been cooling.To even criticize the belief in man-made warming is...

    The Second Amendment got attacked this week from three sides, leaving gun owners scrambling to find safe ground. While President Obama has lost momentum for federal gun-control laws, he has picked up victories with his allies in blue states and at the United Nations. After Thursday, Connecticut should consider changing its state nickname from the Constitution State to the Unconstitutional State after Gov. Dannel Malloy signed an extremely restrictive gun-control law. The bill passed the state House Thursday morning and the Senate on Wednesday. Before the Newtown tragedy, the Brady Campaign determined that Connecticut was the fifth highest-rated state for...
  • Obama Plan Cuts Emissions for Future Coal Plants (To End the Coal Industry)

    Guardian ^ | Tuesday 27 March 2012 15.55 EDT | Suzanne Goldenberg, US environment correspondent
    New rules to cut carbon dioxide emissions will make it nearly impossible to build new coal power plants The Obama administration effectively blocked the construction of any new coal-fired power plants on Tuesday, introducing rules to cut carbon dioxide emissions from the next generation of plants. The proposed new standards would cut carbon dioxide emissions on new power plants in half and will, over time, help move America away from the carbon-heavy plants that currently produce nearly half of the country's electricity, Lisa Jackson, the head of the environmental protection agency, told a conference call with reporters. "Right now there...
  • Obama Budget Doubles National Debt to $26.3 Trillion in 10 Years

    (CNSNews.com) If the federal budget released by President Barack Obama today is implemented, it will double the national debt over the next 10 years. The current national debt is $13.56 trillion (end of FY 2010). By the end of 2021, that debt would rise to $26.3 trillion under the White House budget. The figures reflect the effects of Obamas fiscal year 2012 budget priorities, particularly a federal deficit that never falls below $500 billion in any year between 2010 and 2021.The national debt both debt held by the public and debt held by government accounts (the Social Security...

    The scheduled reading of the Constitution in the House went off smoothly today, after a few of the usual procedural squabbles and legislative throat-clearing. Most representatives of both parties did a perfectly fine job of reading their assigned bit of the text. Speaker John Boehner got to read the really soaring words at the beginning, and gave an exceptionally powerful performance. At the other extreme, watching disgraced Democrat Charlie Rangel read from the Constitution was like watching atheist comedian Ricky Gervais read the Bible, but not as funny. The only bump in an otherwise smooth process came when the requirements...

    George Soros funds the Center for American Progress, which has been characterized as Barack Obama's Ideas Factory. John Podesta, its head, led the transition team when Barack Obama became President. The Center has also become a hiring hall for the Obama team, filling its positions with former employees (among these was controversial Van Jones -- who now is back at the Center). Apparently, George Soros and his Center are upset that the American people placed a roadblock in their plans when we rose up and painted the nation red. The Center now is providing a blueprint of ways Barack Obama...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is playing with fire. And Israel is getting burned. Over the past week, it has been widely reported that the Obama administration and the Netanyahu government are conducting secret negotiations regarding future Israeli land surrenders to the Palestinians in the Jordan Valley and Jerusalem. According to the reports, the Obama administration has presented Netanyahu with a plan whereby Israel will cede its rights to eastern Jerusalem and the Jordan Valley to the Palestinians and then lease the areas from the Palestinians for a limited period. The reports on the length of the lease vary. Some claim...

    The Communist Party USA has scrubbed its website of references that stated it "actively supported" President Obama's election. An article posted on the party's official website on Dec. 30, 2007, previously stated, "Our Party actively supported Obama during the primary election." The article was referring to Obama's 2004 election to the Senate. It detailed how the African-American community and trade unionists played key roles in defeating the "ultra right." "This was also reflected in the historic election of Barack Obama. Our Party actively supported Obama during the primary election," stated the article, a screen shot of which was captured by...

    NEW YORK November 2 is not here yet, but polling problems have begun. From possibly malfunctioning ballot gear to potential fraud, the 2010 mid-term vote is marred even before Election Day has dawned. Like jurors who deliberate before a trial concludes, some Nevadans who have tried voting early for Republican Senate nominee Sharron Angle instead have seen Democrat Harry Reids name appear on their electronic voting machines. Some voters have complained about this apparent glitch, but how many others unwittingly have miscast their ballots? Intriguingly, these machines are maintained in Las Vegas by members of the Service Employees International...

    The reports are rolling in from all over the country. A Craven County, NC resident attempts to vote a straight Republican ticket but his choices come up straight Democrat four times, despite receiving assistance from poll workers. In NC's Lenoir County, registered Democrat Ervin Norville also tries to vote straight Republican but finds that his ballot has the names of several Democrat candidates selected. Boulder City, NV resident Joyce Ferrara says that when she and several others went to vote for Sharon Angle, they found that Senator Harry Reid's name was already checked off. In Dallas County, TX' congressional district...

    A coming series of "superhero" cartoons promoting the tenets of Islam under the title of "The 99" which has been praised by President Obama is drawing a terse warning from an expert who has analyzed media impact on people for decades. "These are not the types of heroes you want your children to have," Dr. Ted Baehr, chief of MOVIEGUIDE," told WND today. "These heroes, at their core, because they represent values contrary to humanity, at the core these heroes are more villain than hero."

    The White House attack on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce isn't about "disclosure." It's about disarmament. While posing as campaign finance champions, the ultimate goal of the Democratic offensive is to intimidate conservative donors, chill political free speech and drain Republican coffers. Chamber of Commerce official Bruce Josten tried to educate the public. "(W)e know what the purpose here is," he told ABC News. "It's to harass and intimidate." Josten cited protests and threats against chamber members as retribution for ads the organization ran opposing the federal health care takeover. But this isn't the first time liberal bullyboys have targeted...

    BOWIE, Md. - About three dozen people have been treated for illness during a rally featuring President Obama at Bowie State University. Prince George's County Fire and EMS spokesman Mark Brady tells WTOP numerous ambulances have been sent to the rally after people started fainting and became dizzy. The problems could be related to warmer temperatures today. Brady says crowds at the rally were outside and packed shoulder to shoulder. Two people have been taken to the hospital so far, Brady says. The rest have been treated at the scene. Officials have set up a triage area inside the gymnasium...

    Original title: Obesity Rating for Every American Must Be Included in Stimulus-Mandated Electronic Health Records, Says HHS ---------------------- New federal regulations issued this week stipulate that the electronic health records--that all Americans are supposed to have by 2014 under the terms of the stimulus law that President Barack Obama signed last year--must record not only the traditional measures of height and weight, but also the Body Mass Index: a measure of obesity. The obesity-rating regulation states that every American's electronic health record must: Calculate body mass index. Automatically calculate and display body mass index (BMI) based on a patients height...

    State Del. Ana Sol Gutierrez got her wish to be arrested Saturday in Washington, D.C., while protesting Arizona's controversial immigration law. The arrests of Gutierrez and 33 others at a rally of thousands outside the White House were for failing to obey a police order to move. Gutierrez (D-Dist. 18) of Chevy Chase and the other protesters urged President Obama to take the lead on the issue of immigration, she said. "It's time for him to deliver on his promise," she said. Congress is considering two immigration reform measures, and activists have implored Obama to actively oppose Arizona's new law....

    Rush Limbaugh is striking back at President Barack Obama. On Friday, the nation's top-rated radio host hit back at Obama, saying the president isnt telling the truth and doesn't have the support of the American people. The controversy started Thursday, when Obama used an interview with CBS' Harry Smith to level a broadside at Limbaugh and Fox News host Glenn Beck. Smith asked Obama if he is aware of the level of enmity that crosses the airwaves and that people have made part of their daily conversation" about him, including being called a Nazi and socialist. Obama shot back, "Well,...

    The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, which posted hundreds of civilian volunteers along the U.S.-Mexico border over the past five years, has disbanded, citing what it called "rising aggression" in the country and decisions by lawmakers in Washington who have "pushed amnesty down our throats." "The mental attitude of many Americans is turning meaner and we are concerned that this could cause problems," MCDC President Carmen Mercer told The Washington Times on Monday. "You see aggression surfacing even at the tea party marches. We just did not want to deal with the liability anymore. "We have to protect the ranchers...

    Several industry groups are publicly condemning what they claim is the Obama administrations effort to earmark an ever larger share of highway funds for non-highway projects. They are particularly livid over the administrations proposal to take $200 million in highway taxes normally distributed to the states and re-direct them into a new Livable Communities program unveiled by the U.S. Dept. of Transportation (DOT) in January. It takes a lot for a group like ours to publicly criticize a Presidential administration this way, Greg Cohen, president & CEO of the American Highway Users Alliance (AHUA), which represents motorists, bus companies, truckers,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Presidential quips about Washington's supposed lack of winter toughness have disappeared as snow accumulations mounted. Barack Obama had been in office for about a week in 2009 when he expressed disbelief that many schools had canceled classes one day because of ice. "As my children pointed out, in Chicago, school is never canceled," he said then. "We're going to have to try to apply some flinty Chicago toughness." Well, here comes more than a little ice: an estimated 20 to 30 inches of snow in Washington.

    The first veto of the Obama presidency was not supposed to be a big deal, but President Obama's rejection of an obscure spending bill late last month is raising some unexpected constitutional questions. Mr. Obama's use of both a "pocket veto" and a regular veto on a stopgap spending bill approved by Congress Dec. 19 has at least one leading scholar questioning the move as a possible stealth White House power grab. The Constitution "simply doesn't give the president a multiple-choice option" on how to veto a bill, said Robert Spitzer, chairman of the political science department at State University...

    And so the solstice passes and a new year dawns, leaving newsmen everywhere with a dearth of news to report (since the government bureaus close down, issuing no new edicts for the newsmen to interpret and praise, which should give you some indication of what really passes for news, these days.) Traditionally, those in the news business respond by taking a stab at predicting noteworthy events of the year to come. We can predict the future quite accurately. Unfortunately, accurate predictions are a bore. The sun will rise 363 more times this year. When I ask for extra salt and...

    At around the turn of the century, before or just after World War I, the progressive amendments were passed. Not since the post Civil War era was there ever such a speedy passage of amendments to the Constitution or since. In a period of about 10 years or so, we saw four radical amendments passed and ratified into the Constitution. They are amendments 16, 17, 18, and 19. The era in which they were passed was one of optimism among the American Left and many of the influential leaders. New areas of science were opening up as well as new...
