  • Democrat Rep. John Barrow cosponsors bill to end Chain Migration

    09/24/2014 8:13:24 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 5 replies
    Rep. John Barrow (D-Ga.) has cosponsored Rep. Phil Gingrey's (R-Ga.) Nuclear Family Priority Act, H.R.477, that would eliminate the extended family visa categories (e.g., married sons and daughters of citizens, etc.), thus ending "chain migration" as recommended by the bipartisan Barbara Jordan Commission in 1997. Current immigration law allows U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents to sponsor non-nuclear, adult family members, creating an endless chain of mass legal immigration.

    North Carolina Rep. Mike McIntyre and New York Rep. Carolyn McCarthy will not seek reelection this year, according to multiple Democratic sources familiar with their plans – marking a blow to Democratic efforts to win control of the House. The 57-year-old McIntyre, who was elected in 1996 to the Wilmington-area congressional seat, narrowly defeated Republican state Sen. David Rouzer in 2012 and was poised to face him in a 2014 rematch. His retirement from the heavily Republican district will further thin the ranks of Blue Dog Democrats. It comes less than a month after another Blue Dog, Utah Rep. Jim...

    This morning, two Democrats in the House of Representatives stood with Republicans and voted to defund ObamaCare. This officially makes it a bi-partisan effort to put an end to a partisan bill. A horrible, partisan Democratic bill that Americans did not, and do not, want. Via Lucianne, The Daily Caller reports, Two Democratic members of the House voted with Republicans Friday to defund Obamacare and fund the government until the end of the year: Utah Rep. Jim Matheson and North Carolina Rep. Mike McIntyre. Matheson is the sole Democratic member of the Utah delegation, a state that Republican presidential candidate...

    Raleigh, N.C. – The battle for North Carolina’s 7th Congressional district seat between Republican candidate Ilario Pantano and Democratic Rep. Mike McIntyre is virtually tied, according to a new SurveyUSA poll released today by the Civitas Institute. According to the poll of 450 registered voters in that district, 46 percent of voters said they would vote for Pantano if the election for United States House of Representatives were held today. Forty-five percent said they would vote for McIntyre, and nine percent of voters said they are undecided. However, when looking at those who are most likely to vote in 2010,...

    Ilario Pantano is a Warlord. That was the name of his U.S. Marines unit when he served during the Iraqi War. It was his second tour of duty after serving previously in the Gulf War. He had returned to civilian life during the 1990s and was working on Wall Street when the attacks of September 11th rocked his office in lower Manhattan. The first thing he did after the attacks was to go to his barber to get a military-style haircut. He knew right away that he was going back to war. Some of you may remember Ilario Pantano from...

And at its opening night dinner on Sunday, ICCC IV managed to add a surprising twist to the Climategate saga. After welcoming the 700-plus attendees, Senior Fellow James Taylor turned the podium over to Heartland President Joseph Bast. Joe also welcomed the guests and speakers (from 23 countries) to Chicago, “the hog butchering capital of the world,” and promised that in the next few days it wouldn’t be swine but rather...

    Science and Public Policy Institute ^ | 10 Feb 10 | Stephen McIntyre
    Reconstructions of temperature over the past 1000 years have been an highly visible part of IPCC presentations to the public. CRU has been extremely influential in IPCC reconstructions through: coauthorship, the use of CRU chronologies, peer review and IPCC participation. To my knowledge, there are no 1000-year reconstructions which are truly “independent” of CRU influence. In my opinion, CRU has manipulated and/or withheld data with an effect on the research record. The manipulation includes (but is not limited to) arbitrary adjustment (“bodging”), cherry picking and deletion of adverse data. The problem is deeply rooted in the sense that some forms...

    For years, North Carolina's District 7 Congressman, Democrat Mike McIntyre has attempted to publicly distance himself from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. This despite voting twice for the San Francisco liberal to ascend to her position of third in line for the White House. However, over the past several months, the Democrat appears to not only be embracing their relationship, he's touting it in big bold letters. In a recent letter to constituents in regards to healthcare reform, McIntyre lists himself as "MAJORITY LEADER'S ADVISORY COUNCIL - SENIOR WHIP." The claim appears to suggest a close bond with McIntyre...

Ilario Pantano plans to seek the Republican nomination in the seventh district, now represented by Democrat Mike McIntyre, WECT-TV in Wilmington reported. "Anybody's background in a political race is fair game," Pantano said. "My life has been more dramatic and kinetic than any other candidate's." After his acquittal five years ago, Pantano wrote a memoir, "Warlord." He has also been a commodity trader for Goldman Sachs. Will Breazeale, who was defeated by McIntyre...

In particular, Breazeale...

    Al Gore and other anthropogenic global warming believers claim the Climategate emails are taken out of context. Steve McIntyre at Climate Audit has blogged an excellent article that puts the Climategate "Hide the decline" email in context and it doesn't help the AGW position. In a nutshell, the IPCC wanted to use the historical proxy temperature change data in their Third Assessment Report, but they were concerned about the chart showing the wrong message since it declined in the late twentieth century. A proxy diagram of temperature change is a clear favourite for the Policy Makers summary. But the current...

McIntyre’s wife found him unresponsive Tuesday evening in an SUV parked inside a detached garage at their Bedford home. McIntyre gained national attention during a months-long recount of his 1984 congressional campaign against Democrat Frank McCloskey. The Democratic-controlled House ruled McCloskey won in southern Indiana’s 8th District by four votes, prompting a Republican walkout at the Capitol.
