    <p>A new Labor Department plan shows the president still has wide power to implement an anti-business agenda.</p> <p>Because President Obama will now have a tough time getting his liberal agenda through a more Republican Congress, many Democrats are urging him to ram it through using the executive branch's unilateral power.</p>
  • Liberal think tank says President can use military to push progressive agenda

    A report released by the Center for American Progress advises the President to use whatever executive powers he has, including his power as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, to push his radical left wing agenda, despite GOP control of the House. The report says, in part: The U.S. Constitution and the laws of our nation grant the president significant authority to make and implement policy. These authorities can be used to ensure positive progress on many of the key issues facing the country through: * Executive orders * Rulemaking * Agency management * Convening and creating public-private partnerships * Commanding...
  • Podesta: Obama Can Use ‘Armed Forces’ to Push Progressive Agenda (WTF?!?)

    The Blaze ^ | 11/18/10 | Jonathon Seidl
    The liberal Center for American Progress doesn’t believe significant GOP gains in the House and Senate should stop the President from implementing more of his polices. The group released a report Tuesday suggesting ways Obama can bypass Congress to accomplish a progressive agenda, and it cites the president’s power as commander-in-chief to make its point. “I think most of the conversation since the election has been about how President Obama adjusts to the new situation on Capitol Hill,” Center for American Progress head and former Bill Clinton Chief of Staff John Podesta told the Daily Caller. “While that’s an important...
  • Note To George Soros: If You Love China’s Government So Much, Why Don’t You Move There

    11/18/2010 9:23:38 AM PST · by Michael van der Galien · 12 replies
    In my last post, I discussed George Soros, the self-hating Jew. Today, I focus on George Soros, the naturalized American citizen who hates his adopted country. As Soros put it in his own words, the United States is a “declining superpower” whose “democracy is in deep trouble.” Soros advocates policies that would rearrange the entire world financial order. He believes in “global governance,” led by the United Nations. To help advance his global governance objectives, Soros has to do something about the United States, which he regards as The main obstacle to a stable and just world order To help...
  • Soros's CAP gives Obama his marching orders to subvert the will of the people

    The American Thinker ^ | November 17, 2010 | Ed Lasky
    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...

    Former President Bill Clinton’s chief of staff John Podesta, now the head of the Center for American Progress, called on President Obama to push forward with his agenda using federal agencies and executive branch power Tuesday, even though Democrats were dealt a blow in the recent midterm elections. Podesta said the American people want the president to move forward with his agenda. “I think most of the conversation since the election has been about how President Obama adjusts to the new situation on Capitol Hill,” Podesta said. “While that’s an important conversation, it simply ignores the president’s ability to use...

    First Lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move!" campaign against childhood obesity got a big boost in Congress on Thursday, in the form of a letter signed by more than 1,100 groups that asks House members to immediately pass a childhood nutrition bill when they return next week. Signers include food, beverage and supermarket companies; public health, education, anti-hunger, faith-based, children's, women's, minority groups; and unions. They want the House to pass a $4.5 billion bill that cleared the Senate by unanimous consent just before the August recess.

    Canada Free press ^ | November 12, 2010 | Dr. Gerald Stephens
    ... George Wills stated in a recent writing the opinion that Obama is a spent volcano. The evidence is legion and growing. His swaggering and lecturing foreign leaders is mocked and now routinely rebuffed. His domestic policies ridiculed and reviled. His control of congress crippled. His only remaining usefulness to Soros is that of a rear guard continuation of sewing seeds of diversity within the American populace. Here too his effectiveness is shown by polls to be dwindling precipitously. Obama has served several functions consistent with ‘Soros’ strategy, the quotation marks indicating that the strategy is a group effort. Their...

        "I don't think you hear me. I don't think you understand. Glenn Beck is hurting Mr. Soros and his business,"  was the message delivered to Beck via a front man for George Soros.Though certainly a silkier  warning compared to crudeness of Mexican drug cartels with their  fondness for  special delivery of a human head delivered in a suitcase, in George Soros' world, the inference is equally chilling.If Glenn Beck was frightened, troubled or disturbed by the ominous message, it didn't show.  Beck used the warning, told as a personal story,as a mere post script to his first segment...

    OAKLAND, CA — A tough political atmosphere in which Congress backed away from comprehensive clean energy and climate change legislation may have been the nail in the coffin for one of the voluntary carbon market's early pioneers.The Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) will discontinue its voluntary greenhouse gas cap-and-trade program next month, according to Intercontinental Exchange Inc., its parent company. In its place, CCX will launch a new registry program for 2011 and 2012 carbon offsets.The development marks a stark contrast from two years ago when many considered climate change legislation in the U.S. to be inevitable."Fundamentally with any program that...

    When Eli Lake's story regarding J Street's donor list was published the role of George Soros created controversy. Soros has a long history of funding anti-Israel activism so his role at J Street was deliberately hidden by the group for years. Now more revelations have started to leak. I did a bit of further research (hat tip: Cheryl Lewin) about another donor and supporter of J Street: Gail Furman. She sits on its advisory council and is a donor listed on its Form 990  . She is also a member of the board of the Soros-created Democracy Alliance - a...

    Stung by a spate of recent documentaries on public schools, the education establishment is trying to rebut the filmmakers’ charges. “Nowhere does the film offer evidence that attending a charter school actually will raise the achievement levels of students highlighted in the movie,” National Education Association president John Wilson said after an advance viewing of Waiting for “Superman.” “Is it possible these students were getting a good education in the public schools they attended?” Wilson made his comments to writer Del Stover in an article which appeared in American School. American School is published by the National School Boards Association...
  • Did Mark Kirk play you for a chump?

    POLITICO just dropped a bombshell with a story Sunday evening about a leaked email written by Mark Kirk to his campaign manager Eric Elk on November 3, 2009. Full story: Kirk feared attack from right. POLITICO says the email came from a Democratic operative who in turn claims to have received it from “someone close to Kirk’s inner circle.” Could a certain “Svengali figure” be involved somehow? We just don’t know. In any case, the email and its instructions reflect some panic on Kirk’s part going into the campaign season for the February Primary. Kirk’s email was sent just a...

    As far as liberal financiers go, you don’t get much more powerful than S. Donald Sussman. Since 1989, the hedge-fund billionaire has pumped millions into the coffers of Democratic politicians and their political pet projects. Sussman sits on the board of the Center for American Progress, the Democracy Alliance and the dovish Israel Policy Forum, and he’s been one of the top contributors to left-leaning 527 organizations during the 2010 election cycle. But while Sussman has long kept a behind-the-scenes profile, a recent ethics controversy in Maine has flung him into the center of a complicated dispute over state residency,...

    Mike's post yesterday about the NAACP’s recent goals to distract from Obama’s failures by leveling charges of racism is a great compliment to this one by Bob Owens. Bob describes how Think Progress, a blog founded by the George Soros insidious group The Center for American Progress (CAP) (and a very influential group inside the Obama administration), is putting out false propaganda to paint the Tea Party as racist. Days after the NAACP passed a resolution calling all Tea Party members as racist. (h/t Gateway Pundit) Think there is no coordination going on with this White House? Do you remember...

    BP has successfully placed a new cap over the leaking Gulf of Mexico oil well. The success was revealed on murky live pictures from an underwater camera and broadcast on BP's website. They show the "Top Hat 10" device hovering and then lowering completely over the well that had been gushing a mile (1,600 meters) beneath the surface. The valve has been designed to be a much tighter fit than its predecessor, so as to completely contain the oil. Once it is screwed into place, BP plans to perform an "integrity test" lasting between six and 48 hours. The US...
