  • After Iran Deal, Obama to Pivot to Climate Change (GOPe in Retreat)

    Politico ^ | 9/11/15 | Michael Crowley
    Buoyed by the success of his nuclear deal with Iran, President Barack Obama is preparing to move aggressively on other long-delayed priorities, including a major climate change summit this winter and his elusive quest to close the Guantanamo Bay prison camp. The National Security Council’s directorate of strategic planning has been quietly building an agenda of action items for the closing year of Obama’s presidency, in a White House that sees its work as far from complete, administration officials say. “We have no intention of resting on our laurels,” said one senior administration official. “We have an ambitious foreign policy...
  • Obama DOJ to Fast Track $3.2 Million in Tax Dollars to Each Charleston Victim’s Family (Tax Money)

    The Obama Department of (In) Justice is set to fast-track payments of $29 million dollars in taxpayer money to each of the families of victims of the shooting that occurred at the Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. That's $3.2 million to each family! Reuters reported that a portion of those dollars was allocated under the government's National Crime Victim Assistance Formula Grant program. Now, before we get into the unconstitutionality and basic theft, resulting in a redistribution of wealth, consider that Clementa Pinckney was not only the pastor of the church, but also a Democrat Party operative (an...

    As the US debt limit is expected to be surpassed by mid-March, 2015, early negotiations between Congress and the White House are beginning to focus on the Obama Administration and the expected inclusion of funding for President Barack Hussein Obama's future vacations and WH sponsored golf outings. Mitch McConnell has brokered an arrangement with the WH to include money in the 2015-16 budget for these expenditures, which are expected to be more than double the amount spent in 2014. McConnell has already indicated a willingness to cooperate with the WH on budget issues and has stated that there will be...

    The U.S. will hit its debt limit on March 16 but with some "extraordinary measures" it will be able to fund the government on a temporary basis, according to U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, who urged Congress in a letter to raise the debt limit immediately. In the letter to House Speaker John Boehner and other House and Senate leaders, Lew said on March 13 his office would have to suspend the issuance of some local and and state securities, reports CNBC. "Accordingly, I respectfully ask Congress to raise the debt limit as soon as possible," Lew wrote in his...

    You can judge a man by friends, the old saying goes. And Congressional Democrats are telling The Hill that they would prefer John Boehner to any conservative insurgent, should a coup attempt to remove him from his speakership. Mike Lillis writes: Democrats from across an ideological spectrum say they'd rather see Boehner remain atop the House than replace him with a more conservative Speaker who would almost certainly be less willing to reach across the aisle in search of compromise. Replacing him with a Tea Party Speaker, they say, would only bring the legislative process — already limping along —...

    t week’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). He’s too busy with his day job as Minority Leader of the United States Senate. What, you thought that with Republicans taking that chamber in January following the historic November election that Mr. McConnell is Majority Leader? No, that would be Harry Reid, the once and former Democratic Majority Leader, who obviously still calls the shots in the World’s Greatest Deliberative Body. There’s no other way to explain the Republican-dominated Senate’s 68-31 vote passage of a bill funding the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) without addressing President Obama’s illegal granting of amnesty to...

    Conservatives are not fooled by floorshows and half-baked schemes designed to appease them. And if talk is cheap, then the words that have come from most Republicans in Congress must surely be discounted to less than $1.99. Meanwhile, for all of their bold talk and harsh criticism of President Obama, the president continues to run circles around GOP congressional leaders. Floorshows like the brilliant speech given by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in his address before Congress are wonderful. But what his speech most reminds us of is that our country lacks the kind of leaders who could stand in...

    Republicans, fresh from landslide victories in congressional, state, and local elections, were well-positioned to flex their newfound muscle by re-establishing constitutional checks and balances on an overzealous executive branch. Instead, Senate Majority Leader McConnell folded like a cheap suit, abandoning efforts to defund President Obama’s amnesty efforts. Tell me again why we need Republican majorities in Congress. Why can’t Senator McConnell trigger the same “nuclear option” now? What about Obamacare? It remains alive and well despite Republican promises to “repeal and replace.”The latest excuse from Republican leadership is that they need the White House before they can accomplish anything.

    House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Sunday that he’s intent on following “regular order” in Congress to consider a Department of Homeland Security spending bill, which many Republicans are hoping can be used to defund President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration. But that “regular order” could end making it easy to pass the DHS bill without any immigration language at all, handing Democrats a big win. With some drama late last week, the House passed a one-week DHS spending bill and asked the Senate to go to a “conference” to sort out differences in the House and Senate DHS...

    It wasn't supposed to be like this for Republicans. A month into their control of both chambers of Congress, they are confronting the very real possibility of a shutdown of the Homeland Security Department later this month. Instead of advancing a conservative agenda and showing voters they can govern, the GOP has been unable to overcome Senate Democrats' stalling tactics in a dispute over immigration. "I suppose elections have consequences except in the United States Senate," complained GOP Rep. Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina, summing up the frustration for many House Republicans.

    Rumors have circulated for years about the possibility of foreign troops being deployed on U.S. soil in the event of a widespread declaration of a national emergency. For quite some time there have been anecdotal reports to support the claim that the U.N., Russia and other nations would be used in a policing capacity should some critical event befall our nation. The fear should such a scenario take place has been that these soldiers would act under the banner of their own flags, ignoring the fundamental protections afforded to our citizens, leaving Americans under the jurisdiction of people who don’t...

    As the Pentagon pours attention and resources into the conflict-ridden Asian-Pacific theater, it's made an unheard of command choice. The AP reports Australian Maj. General Richard Burr is now Deputy Commanding General for Operations at U.S. Pacific Command (USARPAC) out of Hawaii. It's the first time a non-American has served in such a high-ranking position at this type of command. This isn't some out-of-the way little military base — this is the command led by Major General George Moore in the days after World War II. Moore fought at Battan along with enough other dark Pacific campaigns to fill a...

Many of those fights have been undercover jobs and yet, here we are today, just a step or two from becoming a huge third world Socialist/Communist nation. All one has to do is go back and look at what the Communist Party of the United States laid out at their conference back on April 2012. This conference was attended by none other than a host of those in the Democratic “Progressive” Caucus, along...

For over fifty years but especially since the middle nineteen-thirties there have been insinuated into high places in our government at Washington men whose collaboration in this socialistic movement has been greatly responsible for breaking down our constitutional form of government and substituting therefor the Socialist idea of centralized government. Every loyal American should read this book. It is well documented, and proves beyond doubt that those who have wielded such vast influence upon successive Presidents, especially since Franklin Roosevelt, do not have a desire to...

Federal officials have said they were investigating the activities of Nakoula, who has been convicted of financial crimes. If the probation department determines Nakoula violated terms of his release, a judge could send him back to prison.

    In response to my “Why We’re Forced to Choose Between a Bad President and an Even Worse President,” a reader said that Obama "has just one fault he cannot quit spending,” and said that, consequently, “he MUST GO!” This basic Republican charge against Obama is a blatant Republican lie, as I shall here document conclusively. The document, “Fiscal Year 2013 Historical Tables,” was recently published by the Federal Government, and it shows (pages 22-23) that the Government’s actual “Outlays” have remained essentially flat since the 2009 budget, which was submitted under George W.

Looks like his conservative character on "30 Rock" hasn't rubbed off on him in the slightest. The Baldwin tweets started out harmless enough... But something or someone must have triggered his nerves because a full-blown counter-attack against anti-Obama protesters followed... After replying to some commenters and rehashing rumors about running for mayor, Baldwin went full 360 and wrote a haiku about Cannes. Strange.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman is pounding away at rival Rick Perry‘s skepticism of manmade global warming and criticism of the nation’s central banker, saying those stands hurt the GOP and make the Texas governor come off as a not so serious national figure. Huntsman, a former Utah governor who was President Barack Obama’s first ambassador to China, has trailed in early polls nationally and in early voting states, leading his campaign to pledge more aggressive attacks on the top candidates. Perry, who entered the race last weekend and has surged to a prominent role, has provided Huntsman...

    In an op-ed article in the New York Times, Robert D. Putnam, a professor of public policy at Harvard, and David E. Campbell, a political scientist at Notre Dame, say they have collected data indicating that the tea party is "less popular than much maligned groups like 'atheists' and 'Muslims.'" But Campbell says the tea party was really an afterthought in their research. "We didn't go into this study to look at the tea party," Campbell said in an interview with The Ticket. The professors were following up on research they conducted in 2006 and 2007 for their book "American...
  • ‘Sen. Tea Party': DeMint Drives Conservative Directon on Debt & Deficit (A True Patriot!)

    WASHINGTON (AP) — He calls himself Sen. Tea Party. That almost says it all about Sen. Jim DeMint‘s role on the nation’s political scene in these nervous days of debt limit warfare and pre-election posturing. But unlike the fractious movement as a whole, DeMint is specific and focused on what change, exactly, he wants: passage — not just a vote — of a balanced-budget amendment to the Constitution. Without it, he says, no consideration should be given to raising the nation’s borrowing limit. Even, he says, if the country runs out of money for paying all its bills after Aug....

    A new controversy over Oscar winner Jane Fonda's Vietnam War activism caused the actress to come out swinging against home shopping TV network QVC on Saturday, over what she described as its caving in to "extremist" pressure to cancel her appearance. In a blog posting on showbusiness website, Fonda wrote that she was scheduled to appear on QVC on Saturday to introduce her book "Prime Time" about aging and life cycles. But the network, Fonda wrote, reported receiving a flood of angry calls regarding her anti-war activism of the 1960s and 1970s, and it decided to cancel Fonda's appearance....

    On Monday, former Vice President Al Gore discussed climate change and pollution control at the Games for Change convention in New York City. Aside from his usual litanies of environmental advice nuggets, the 2000 presidential candidate delved into…family planning. Curiously, Gore said that couples need to learn to “feel comfortable having small families” so that pollution can be curbed. When asked about what could be done to address population growth, he said: “One of the things we could do about it is to change the technologies, to put out less of this pollution, to stabilize the population, and one of...

    Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer should soon retire. That would be the responsible thing for them to do. Both have served with distinction on the Supreme Court for a substantial period of time; Ginsburg for almost 18 years, Breyer for 17. Both are unlikely to be able to outlast a two-term Republican presidential administration, should one supersede the Obama administration following the 2012 election. What’s more, both are, well, old: Ginsburg is now 78, the senior sitting justice. Breyer is 72. Is such a suggestion an illicit politicization of the Court? No. It is simply a plea for...

    Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.– Sir Winston Churchill Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.Disarming the U.S. didn't start during the anti-war protests of the hippies, anarchists and socialists of the 1960s. Homegrown traitors of America have disarmed America by giving military secrets to our enemies. Julius and Ethel Rosenberg and physicist's Robert Oppenheimer and Klaus Fuchs are just the most conspicuous. We have disarmed our military by promoting appeasement generals,...

    We all know that climate change melts glaciers and shifts sea levels. But have you ever thought about how rising temperatures can threaten beautiful places in every corner of the world? Some of these spots may be closer to home than you think. For Earth Day, Yahoo! News interviewed Gaute Hogh, publisher of the book 100 Places to Go Before They Disappear (distributed by Abrams in the U.S.). Hogh was inspired to produce the book after witnessing the effects of global warming in his native Denmark. He wanted to show how natural beauty around the globe could be forever altered...
