  • 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...
  • GE rejects Republicans’ climate change doubts

    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...
  • [Liar] Rossi Tells Florida Bureau He Has No U.S. Factory, No Nuclear Reactions

    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.

    The following is a copy of a letter to the editor I am sending to several local papers in my region. Is it time for another letters to the editor campaign like was so successful in thwarting Al Gore in 2000? Yeah, looks like it is! Recently, a press conference was given in Maricopa County, Arizona by Joe Arpaio, a five times elected Sheriff who served in the United States Army from 1950 to 1953, served as a federal narcotics agent with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and served as head of Arizona DEA. What Sheriff Joe revealed should...

  • 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...
  • Dynegy Asset Shuffle Called 'Fraudulent'

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 9 march 2012 | JOSEPH CHECKLER and MIKE SPECTOR
    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...

    A singularly remarkable event has taken place in the United States of America. This event occurred in Arizona on March 1st and was an earth shattering revelation. A long awaited press conference was given by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a five time elected Sheriff, which should have made national and international headlines. Arpaio's credentials include serving in the United States Army from 1950 to 1953, service as a federal narcotics agent serving in countries all over the world with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and served as the head of the Arizona DEA. Without doubt, this is a...

    EGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: There's an interesting story to start with today. This is a Politico story, and it was out last night. Obviously this story was written before this morning's unemployment report came out. Now, the unemployment number, 8.3%, no change, and you would not believe the way this is being reported. Why, we are in a roaring-back economy. We have got a recovery that's unprecedented. Have you noticed it, Dawn? No, I mean the reporting. Wherever you look on radio, television, and print, you would believe that we are sitting atop the greatest powder keg of an economic recovery...

    What a shock -- labor unions paying one of their biggest cheerleaders in the media. Perhaps Ed Schultz could explain what he does for unions to warrant such largesse. 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"

    The Chevrolet Volt is everything that is wrong with Washington on four wheels, and investors (that’s you and me) should be furious. Wrong #1 : The Volt should be re-named the Vote. Who can forget that Super Bowl ad, with the pseudo-assembly line of Volts rolling through Hamtramck, Michigan, and the voice overlay that “this isn’t the car we wanted to build; it’s the car America had to build…from the heart of Detroit to the help [sic] of the country.” How true—corporate welfare on wheels, buying votes in a state vital to the President’s re-election. There is simply no...

    Did MSNBC ever vet Al Sharpton? Seriously, with so much of the talk about HBO's Game Change docu-drama focusing on the vetting of Sarah Palin or lack thereof by the McCain campaign, is there any minimum standard of knowledge required to have one's own show on the Lean Forward network? Take Sharpton's mind-boggling misstatement on Morning Joe today. The Reverend Al asserted that in Alabama, "it's against the law to organize unions." Did any of the MJ crew, including Joe Scarborough, Gene Robinson and Steve Rattner, call Al out on his misrepresentation? Of course not. View the video here. k

    Presidential Vetting: Obama's days at Harvard have been shrouded in secrecy. But a new video lifts a corner of the veil, revealing his creepy embrace of the "Jeremiah Wright of academia." It turns out his favorite law professor was the late Derrick Bell, a black radical who taught classes trashing the Constitution as racist. 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. A video clip posted by captures Obama praising Bell for "speaking the...

    Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, has described 2011 as “the most difficult year in [Planned Parenthood’s] history.” Well, welcome to 2012. The Alliance Defense Fund, in conjunction with the Susan B. Anthony List, released its summary report on publicly available federal and state audits that identify waste, abuse, and potential fraud by Planned Parenthood and state family planning programs and reveal systemic misuse of nearly $100 million taxpayer dollars. The audits speak for themselves in detailing Planned Parenthood’s misuse of the money that’s been funneled to state family planning programs and Planned Parenthood affiliates. Ten state...
  • White House Attack Dog Targets Limbaugh Sponsors

    03/08/2012 6:26:41 PM PST · by Kaslin · 25 replies
    Censorship: The pressure on Rush Limbaugh's advertisers is from a group that meets regularly with the White House and runs an Obama Super-PAC funded by unions. 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...
  • Study: County firefighters’ average compensation dips to $175,000 from $189,000

    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.
