    Senator McCain correespondence | 5/15/15 | Sen. McCain
    Thank you for contacting me regarding climate change. I appreciate knowing your thoughts on this issue. Last year, President Obama announced a plan to address climate change. Unfortunately, most of the Administration's proposals would simply impose burdensome regulations on American business that would be harmful to the U.S. economy. While I welcome the opportunity to debate proposals in the Senate, I do not support the use of executive orders to implement policy and place costly new regulations on the American industry. According to extensive international scientific studies, including reports by the National Academy of Sciences and the Intergovernmental Panel on...

    My Friend, Earlier this week when the Senate was asked to vote on confirming Loretta Lynch as the next Attorney General of the United States, I voted no. During her confirmation hearing before the Judiciary Committee, Ms. Lynch stated her belief that the President's recent executive actions on immigration were "reasonable" and "constitutional." My Friend, I could not support anyone to be the highest law enforcement official in America who supports the President's clearly unconstitutional actions. That's why I cast my vote "NO." The job of the U.S. Attorney General is to represent the people of the United States and...

    Thank you for contacting me about President Obama's nominee for United States Attorney General. I appreciate receiving your comments on this matter. As you may know, on November 7, 2014, President Obama nominated Loretta Lynch to replace Attorney General Eric Holder. On February 26, 2015, the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary voted to approve Ms. Lynch's nomination by a vote of 12 to 8. I voted in favor of her nomination. I believe that elections have consequences and that elected presidents should be afforded a certain degree of deference in the presidential appointment process, particularly when the nominee...

    Thank you for contacting me about the President's executive action on immigration. On November 20, 2014, President Obama announced unilateral executive actions regarding the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws. Among other provisions, these actions seek to postpone the deportation of the parents of children who are either U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents and provide them with a work permit. The criteria for those eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a program that allows certain illegal immigrants who entered the United States before their sixteenth birthday and before June 2007 to receive a work permit and temporary authorization to...

    Thank you for contacting me about the letter sent by Republican Senators to the leadership in Iran regarding a nuclear agreement. As you know, on March 9, 2015, 47 Republican Senators sent a letter to the leaders of Iran addressing a prospective agreement on Iran's nuclear program. In the letter, the cosigners advised that Congress could revoke any agreement reached with Iran. I did not sign this letter. While I believe that Congress should have a say on any agreement – after all, Congress will need to repeal the sanctions from which Iran seeks relief as part of an agreement...

    Dear Friend: Thank you for contacting me to express your view that President Obama should be impeached and removed from office. I apologize for the delay in my response. The impeachment and removal of a President are extraordinary actions, defined in Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution, that should be taken only when the individual holding that office has been found to have committed treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. Like you, I am deeply concerned and disturbed with the recent scandals ranging from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) targeting conservative organizations, secret e-mail accounts by government...

    Thank you for contacting me to relay your concerns regarding Iran and our efforts for a comprehensive nuclear agreement. I appreciate learning your thoughts on this important issue. For many years, Congress has recognized the threat of the Iranian nuclear program and has taken the lead on initiating sanctions. Over time, the economic sanctions imposed on Iran have increased their willingness to negotiate. On November 23, 2013, the Iranian government agreed to halt further expansion of their nuclear program in exchange for temporary sanctions relief and entered into extensive negotiations about a nuclear deal that would outline the final arrangements...

As you may know, on March 31, 2014, Andrew Tahmooressi was arrested on weapons charges in Mexico after arriving at a border crossing point with a pistol, shotgun, and rifle in his truck. Possession of a firearm is a federal crime in Mexico, and Sergeant Tahmooressi is currently being detained while he awaits hearings concerning his case. Sergeant Tahmooressi maintains that he took a wrong turn and had no intention of crossing the Mexican border or trafficking arms. Although this affair is a matter for the Mexican judiciary,...

    Saul Alinsky’s 12 Rules for Radicals Here is the complete list from Alinsky. * RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood. (These are two things of which there is a plentiful supply. Government and corporations always have a difficult time appealing to people, and usually do so almost exclusively with economic arguments.) * RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat.

    04/15/2014 4:32:47 PM PDT · by Don Corleone · 13 replies
    Critics say the project's underlying objective is to convert non-Muslim children to Islam by bringing proselytizing messages into public schools under the guise of promoting multiculturalism and fighting "Islamophobia." The group recently ran an advertisement promising to pay 250 Czech korunas ($13 dollars) to any student aged 15 to 18 years who would attend a two hour presentation about Islam. More recently, Muslims in the Czech Republic have tried to ban a book they say is Islamophobic, and have filed a ten-page criminal complaint against its formerly-Muslim author. The Czech government has approved a new project aimed at promoting Islam...

I believe in tax reform and in deep tax cuts for the American people.

I remain a strong supporter of our Armed Forces, a national missile...

    Dear Mr: Thank you for contacting me about U.S. policy toward the Islamic Republic of Iran. As you probably know, on November 24, 2013, the United States, Iran, and five other world powers agreed to an interim agreement to freeze Iran's nuclear program in return for temporary sanctions relief. This transitory accord will last for six months while a permanent resolution concerning the Iran nuclear issue is created. In response, on December 19, 2013, Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) introduced S. 1881, the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2013. This bill would implement new sanctions on Iran in the event...

    Thank you for contacting me with your views on the health reform legislation passed by Congress in 2010. Three years after its passage, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) remains one of the most controversial bills ever considered in Congress. While I support improving our health care delivery system to bring down costs and increase access to affordable health insurance, and have put forth several detailed proposals, the PPACA is not the answer. As written, this legislation would lead to higher health care costs, increased taxes, trillions of dollars in new federal spending, $715 billion in cuts to...

In July 1996, the 14-year-old daughter of Robert Gay, a partner at Bain Capital, had disappeared. She had attended a rave party in New York City and gotten high on ecstasy. Three days later, her distraught father had no idea where she was. Romney took immediate action. He closed down the entire firm and asked all 30 partners and employees to fly to New York to help find Gay’s daughter. Romney set up a command center at the LaGuardia Marriott and hired a private detective...

    For the United States, it should put its house in order before chiding others. Since the onset of U.S. subprime crisis in 2007, it was the country's domestic economic problems that triggered a disastrous financial crisis that swept the world. Excessive spending for many years has added up debts. Meanwhile, traditional strong industries such as finance and auto were devastated by the crisis, pushing up unemployment. In face of such serious domestic problems which probably could trigger a new global economic tsunami, many U.S. politicians seemed only to care about how many votes they could get, without having a single...

So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions and one person to do time studies.
