  • Labor Leaders Plan to Apply New Clout in Effort for Obama (A.F.L-C.I.O planning huge GOTV effort)

    New York Times ^ | 03/12/2012 | STEVEN GREENHOUSE
    As the A.F.L.-C.I.O. prepares to endorse President Obama on Tuesday, labor leaders say they will mount their biggest campaign effort, with far more union members than ever before — at least 400,000, they say — knocking on voters’ doors to counter the well-endowed “super PACs” backing Republicans. The same Supreme Court ruling in 2010 that set the stage for these political action committees to accept unlimited donations also allowed unions to send their foot soldiers to visit not just union members at home, but also voters who do not belong to unions — a move expected to increase labor’s political...

    General Electric has brushed aside the doubts leading Republican presidential contenders have raised about climate science. The US industrial and financial conglomerate said it had long seen climate change as a valid concern after an internal evaluation of the scientific case in 2005. (Snip) Observers have attributed the party’s shift since the last election to a range of factors, including the rise of the anti-regulatory Tea Party and fears about unemployment. Others suggest the change is due to fossil fuel interests using so-called super PACs – the new generation of political action committees empowered by a 2010 Supreme Court ruling...

    Rossi has been caught in some whopper lies. Yesterday, the New Energy Times published an extremely damning report regarding Andrea Rossi and his E-Cat: Andrea Rossi, the inventor of the Energy Catalyzer, told an inspector from the Florida Bureau of Radiation Control that he has no factory in the United States and that no nuclear reactions occur in his devices. Rossi's statements contradict nearly everything he has said in the last year about his claims of a factory and his development of a low-energy nuclear reaction device.

  • Is this why Sandra Fluke picked to testify? Progressive groups snagged in birth control debate

    Prior to her testimony to Congress, did Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke have any prior connection to Obama administration officials? Did the Congresswomen who pushed Fluke’s testimony coordinate with a marketing outfit that recently conducted polling to determine whether contraception mandates can become a possible presidential election issue? According to reports, it was Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-New York, who pushed for Fluke’s testimony. Maloney also initiated the call for Fluke to sue Rush Limbaugh for his on-air derogatory remark about Fluke, according to The Daily Beast. Maloney is tied to a progressive pollster, Celinda Lake, who recently ran extensive...

    A bankruptcy-court examiner said Dynegy Inc.'s board breached its fiduciary duty with an asset reshuffling that benefited billionaire Carl Icahn and other shareholders at the expense of creditors. A report by the examiner released Friday threw the Houston-based power provider's debt-restructuring plans for its main subsidiary into doubt, a setback for Mr. Icahn. The restructuring, executed before Dynegy's subsidiary filed for bankruptcy protection in November, was a "fraudulent transfer" that moved "hundreds of millions of dollars away from Dynegy's creditors in favor of its stockholders," said the examiner, Susheel Kirpalani, in a 173-page report. He suggested Mr. Icahn's representatives no...

I don't recall hearing anything along these lines on his radio program or MSNBC show. (graphic after page break) In fiscal 2011, Schultz received $190,000 from the Communications Workers of America for what the U.S. Department of Labor categorized as "representational activities." For swag like that, you'd think Schultz could at least get it right about the CWA name. Instead, he invariably refers to it as the "Communication"

He liked Bell so much he led a law school "strike" in support of him in 1991, when the professor went on unpaid leave to protest the lack of affirmative-action hiring on campus.

The group Media Matters acts like a lobbyist but is not registered as one. It operates in the shadows, outside congressional oversight and unaccountable to voters. This makes its collusion with the White House in the heat of a presidential race a serious matter worthy of investigation. Targeting Limbaugh, a staunch Republican, is no coincidence. If the Obama campaign can silence him, it can knock out the party's most powerful voice for firing up...

    A new employee compensation study by Clark County administrators shows average firefighter compensation dipped to $175,000 in 2011 from about $189,000 in fiscal year 2010. Almost all of the decline stems from a drop in overtime pay to firefighters. During the last two years, overtime compensation for firefighters fell from $17.4 million in 2009 to $10.5 million in 2011. In 2009, overtime made up 24 percent of a firefighters' wages; in 2011, it made up 15 percent.

    A rush to green energy by spending billions covering much of the countryside with wind turbines would be an expensive blunder, a damning study has found. Professor Gordon Hughes of Edinburgh University said the massive programme will cost consumers £120billion by 2020 through higher bills. This is almost ten times more than the £13billion it would cost to generate the same amount of electricity from efficient gas-fired power stations, according to the leading energy and environment economist. Professor Hughes said families are being forced to subsidise wind farms through their bills. Meanwhile business energy costs are also being driven up,...

    President Obama's healthcare reform law skews healthcare funding in a way that would put many of the nation's medical programs at risk if the law is repealed, the top Republican on the Senate Appropriations Health subcommittee warned Wednesday. The remarks from Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) are surprising because Republicans - including Shelby - have been calling for the law's repeal ever since it was passed. In his opening statement at a hearing on the Health and Human Services Department's proposed budget for FY 2013, Shelby suggested lawmakers should start taking a hard look at the impact of repealing the law...

Just three days later, GM announced that it would suspend Volt production for five weeks this spring, idling 1,300 workers at a Hamtramck, Mich., factory.

Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his "Cold Case Posse" attempted to answer that question, with the intended goal of verifying the authenticity of the certificate presented by the White House to the public. At the March 1 press conference, Sheriff Arpaio concluded that there is "probable cause" to believe that the document is a "computer-generated forgery."

    What are we to make of President Barack Obama's latest pronouncements about Iran's movement toward nuclear bombs? His tough talk might have had some influence on Iran a couple of years ago, when he was instead being kinder and gentler with the world's leading terrorist-sponsoring nation. Now his tough talk may only influence this year's election — which may be enough for Obama. The track record of Barack Obama's pronouncements on a wide range of issues suggests that anything he says is a message written in sand, and easily blown away by the next political winds. Remember the "shovel-ready...

    President Obama said he called Sandra Fluke, the college student at the center of the Rush Limbaugh controversy, after thinking about how his own daughters would have handled the criticism. “I thought about Malia and Sasha,” Obama said at a press conference Tuesday. “And one of the things I want them … to be able to do is speak their minds in a civil and thoughtful way, and I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names they’re being good citizens.” “I wanted Sandra to know that her parents ought to be proud of her,” Obama continued. Last week, Limbaugh...

    A Dane County Judge on Tuesday granted a temporary injunction that bars the enforcement of the state photo ID law at polling places during the general election on April 3. Circuit Judge David Flanagan said that the Milwaukee Branch of the NAACP and Voces de la Frontera had demonstrated that their lawsuit against Gov. Scott Walker and the state Government Accountability Board would probably succeed on its merits and had demonstrated the likelihood of irreparable harm if the photo ID law is allowed to stand. Flanagan ordered Walker and the GAB to "cease immediately any effort to enforce or implement...

    LifeNews Note: Reprinted with permission from Ethika Politika, the blog of the Center for Morality in Public Life.Remember the Georgetown Law student, Sandra Fluke, who was forced to suffer through $3,000-worth of protected sex during her stint at law school? Turns out, thereÂ’s a bit more to the story.According to some sources, Fluke might just have been a well-placed fake. Not exactly the young-and-helpless female law student most took her for, FlukeÂ’s LinkedIn profile speaks for itself:With a six year hiatus between her undergraduate time and GT Law, Fluke is probably closer to 30. And sheÂ’s had plenty of involvement...

    I'm referring, of course, to the new Las Vegas City Hall. City officials, led by Mayor Carolyn Goodman, have been putting out a ridiculous talking point, bragging that the new city hall will save Las Vegas $400,000 a year in energy costs. "This is an incredible night for us all," the mayor [Carolyn Goodman] said. She said the energy efficient building, which features 33 "solar trees" in the front that generate electricity, will reduce the energy costs by more than $400,000 a year. The same talking point has also been in the RJ multiple times.* Now, we at NPRI are...

    The Drudge Report has linked to MRC TV's Stephen Gutowski, who dug up that the Radical Feminist Heroine of the Week Sandra Fluke thinks insurance policies shouldn't just pay for contraceptives, but for "transgender" amputations and implants. If the national media thinks this scandal-ette deserves to go for weeks on end, where is this story? Steve reports Fluke makes her view of an amputation entitlement clear in an article she co-edited with Karen Hu in the Georgetown Journal of Gender and the Law: The title of the article, which can be purchased in full here, is Employment Discrimination Against LGBTQ...

    A week ago, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi ridiculed a hearing organized by Republicans for featuring a panel of all male witnesses on the president's contraception policy. On Thursday she's keeping the issue front and center and having her own event featuring a female witness the GOP barred from testifying. Sandra Fluke, a 24-year-old Georgetown University Law student who supports the Obama administration's policy requiring health insurers to offer birth control coverage to women who work at religiously-affiliated organizations, will be the sole witness before Pelosi's all Democratic Policy Committee

    The elite national media that is trying to destroy Rush Limbaugh over his calling liberal activist Sandra Fluke a 'slut' and 'prostitute' is set to host a comic who attacked Sarah Palin (and her son Trig) in vile terms.The Radio and Television Correspondents Association (RTCA)announced in December that its 68th Annual Radio & TV Congressional Correspondents' Dinner to be held June 8, 2012, at the Walter E.

    Breitbart ^ | 3/4/2012 | Andrew Breitbart
    Prior to his passing, Andrew Breitbart said that the mission of the Breitbart empire was to exemplify the free and fearless press that our Constitution protects--but which, increasingly, the mainstream media denies us. “Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?” – “Who guards the guardians?” Andrew saw himself in that role—as a guardian protecting Americans from the left’s “objective” loyal scribes. Andrew wanted to do what the mainstream media would not. First and foremost: Andrew pledged to vet President Barack H. Obama. Andrew did not want to re-litigate the 2008 election. Nor did he want to let Republicans off the hook. Instead, he...
