  • Obama’s Energy Mandate: More Oil and Gas

    11/26/2012 11:28:58 AM PST · by Mr. Doctor · 14 replies
    The Energy Tribune ^ | Peter Glover
    During the presidential campaign Barack Obama was “economical with the truth” to say the least on energy matters. Claiming personal credit for the success of the shale gas and oil industry took some ‘Chicago politics’ hutzpah given the development took place mostly on private land. But with the fiscal cliff looming on January 1, the President will be involved in making some critical energy policy decisions. So just what is the president’s electoral mandate for his second-term? Will he throw his anti-fossil fuel ideology under the bus and in the economic interest of the nation? Or he will he persist...

    The Republicans keep putting new tax revenue on the table (capping deductions), Warren Buffet suggests increasing tax rates on households earning $500k and above, but President Obama and Democrats replied “Nyet.” It is always a risky proposition to raise taxes when the economy is so fragile. Speaking of a fragile economy, the Chicago Fed National Activity Index printed at -0.56 for October and a previous reading of 0.00 in September. A print of -0.56 indicates economic contraction. Meanwhile, down in Texas, the Dallas Fed’s Manufacturing Outlook Level of General Business Activity was expected to print at +2.5, but printed at...

    The Texas legislature will soon consider HB 149, the Texas Liberty Preservation Act which would subject anyone in the state attempting to enforce Barack Obama’s infamous National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA) to one year in prison and a $10,000 fine. Written by Texas representative Lyle Larson, the Texas Act says that “…Texas shall not provide material support or participate in any way with the implementation of Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 within the legal boundaries of the state of Texas.” (1) Incorporated into the NDAA at the demand of Barack Obama,...

    NY TIMES ^ | November 26, 2012
    President Obama's fleeting mention of the need for stronger gun controls at a presidential debate last month was hardly the kind of forceful political statement needed to address the scourge of gun violence in this country. Even his tepid remark was considered by the nation's gun owners as a threat to take away their firearms. In what amounts to a buyers' panic, they are again ramping up gun and ammunition sales as they did four years ago, convinced that Mr. Obama intends a gun-control crackdown. Yet in his first term, Mr. Obama did nothing to cross the gun lobby, and...

    With Pres. Obama's reelection, political stem winders are focused on 'The Fiscal Cliff,' as the enacted package of reductions in the growth of government and tax increases to above Clintonian levels is called. Few Republicans are willing to play hardball and face sequester, but at least some are insisting on new revenues through eliminating deductions rather than raising marginal rates. While Shout Bits is certain Congress will find a way to do worse than just driving off the Cliff, here is a primer on why keeping marginal rates low is important for everyone. Money never rests.

In the process, the moderators have blocked from WND forums participants who post abusive language aimed at angering or otherwise insulting forum members, WND authors, management and staff. Trolls appear to perform a “disinformation” function typical of counter-intelligence efforts by intelligence agencies to confuse political enemies and refute or deflect opposing political views that are less susceptible to refutation by more traditional methods of debate and argumentation.

    A new CNN poll shows that more Americans would blame Republicans if the country went off the fiscal cliff rather than President Obama. 45 percent of those polled by CNN said they would blame Republicans more; 34 percent said they would blame Obama. But Republicans might have a political opportunity if they can convince Americans that President Obama is not working to cooperate with Republicans. According to CNN, nearly half say Obama is not doing enough to cooperate with the Republicans, although seven in ten want him to compromise with the GOP.

    WASHINGTON — When Tea Party activists swamped town hall-style meetings about health care in the summer of 2009, President Obama’s army of campaign volunteers largely stayed away, seemingly less interested in fighting for legislation than they had been in electing the nation’s first African-American president. Now, Mr. Obama is seizing a second chance to keep his election-year supporters animated. With lawmakers scheduled to return to work on Monday to begin intense discussions before a looming fiscal deadline, Mr. Obama’s aides are trying to harness the passions that returned him to the White House, hoping to pressure Republicans in Congress to...

High call volumes caused “intermittent outages” in the system, an FBI spokesman confirmed Friday afternoon. “It means we can’t sell no damn guns,” Rick Lozier, a manager at Van Raymond Outfitters in Brewer, said at about 1:15 p.m. “NICS is down, which means nobody is...

First the Republicans lost the election, then they lost their nerve. No sooner had the votes been counted than the fingers started pointing. Republicans turned on one another and on the campaign they had waged, calling people extremists and policies outdated. According to any number of Republican Monday-morning quarterbacks,...

    Is Obama Always Faithful to our Marines? The current political winds in Washington, DC, have dictated that less will be spent on the various Branches of the Armed Forces of the Unites States. Case in point: the Commander-in-Chief has decided to fire 20,000 of our U.S. Marines.

The North County Times also cited that America's premier fighting force is; "scraping to repair or replace battle-worn equipment." In spite of...

Obama has bailed out those businesses that voted for him and increased the debt to over 16 trillion with an ever increasing unemployment rate especially among blacks and other minorities.

Until now, President Obama has had the "final moral calculation" overseeing the "kill list," the existence of which was first revealed in May in the wake of a drone strike that killed an al-Qaida leader. But according to the paper, administration officials are looking to curb the power of the commander in chief with the rule book:

But with more than 300 drone strikes and some 2,500 people killed by the Central Intelligence Agency and the military since Mr. Obama first took office, the administration is still pushing to make the rules formal and...

    Throw President Obama and his constituency over the "Fiscal Cliff." The fiscal cliff affects all Americans and that is not good. It is time that America understands what Obama’s four year strings of trillion dollar deficits are doing. President Obama expects four more years of the same regarding yearly federal debt and that will cost all Americans. The post-progressives are going to be happy since the American people will have developed into a nation with social equality. However, the rub for the American people is that social equality will mean that everyone will have an equally low standard of living....

    Rifles, even .22 caliber models many young people receive as their first gun, are “among the greatest threats to the reliability of the nation’s power system,” U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Chairman Jon Wellinghoff claimed at a Tuesday Bloomberg Government Breakfast, Bloomberg News reported yesterday. Citing “inadequately protected” transformers as easy targets, Wellinghoff told the group that terrorists in "coordinated" actions committed to destroying them “could get 200 yards away with a .22 rifle and take the whole thing out.” His proposed solution, a “couple hundred bucks” of “metal sheeting to block the view of transformers” hardly seems comprehensive, realistic,...

  • What the GOP can learn from Obama, Reagan, and even Hitler

    The Washington Times ^ | November 24 | Henry D'Andrea
    The 2012 presidential election was a devastating setback for the Republican Party. Still and all, for 2016 the Republican Party should get back up on their feet and take a few cues from Obama, Reagan and Hitler. In 2008, Obama won the country over with his promise of hope and change, but it wasn’t just the words he was saying, it was the way he delivered them. Then-Senator Obama was arguably the most articulate presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan. Even people who disagreed with his policies agreed that he knew how to make them sound like the right path to...

    THE BLAZE ^ | 11/23/11 | Mytheos Holt
    Those arguing that President Obama’s victory in the election a few weeks back was due to fraud may have found a dubious ally in their quest to argue that Mitt Romney’s rightful victory was stolen from under his nose. That ally is the much-mocked Dean Chambers, creator of the now arguably discredited website UnskewedPolls.com. Chambers, fresh off his last venture into arguing with numbers, has created the site barackofraudo.com, where he has posted this map, which he claims represents states that President Obama won by voter fraud:

    Hoping to encourage other Americans to participate in "Small Business Saturday" as an alternative to big chain-friendly Black Friday, President Obama today visited an Arlington, Va., bookstore to cross some items off his family's Christmas list. Accompanied by his daughters Sasha and Malia, the president journeyed across the river to One More Page Books, which the White House described as an "independent, neighborhood bookstore." After consulting his Blackberry for an apparent holiday wish list, he purchased 15 children's books before even browsing the store. "Preparation," he told shop owner Eileen McGervey, according to the reporter who covered the visit for...

Yes sir, the Republican brotherhood of Idaho's most eloquent idiots are teaching by example on how to be a poor loser. Assassination threats are in full swing, and many are in church praying that it happens. They know who they are, and so does history. They long for the good ol' days of crucifixions, lynchings, and the dark ages when heretics were burned at the stake. Good God, that damned word "change!" Can...
  • On a Largely Blue Island, an Exception: Trump Tower (91 NYC districts 100% Obama?)

    Its black glass exterior soars high above Fifth Avenue, and its gold-tipped revolving doors have spun the likes of Bruce Willis and Anne Hathaway into its waterfall-splashed atrium. But on Election Day, Trump Tower earned a different sort of distinction: a tiny island of Romneyville amid Manhattan’s deep, blue-state sea. … Mr. Romney won a single Manhattan precinct outright, a stretch of Park Avenue near the Waldorf-Astoria, where six voters showed up and four chose the Republican. But he suffered a resounding defeat in New York, a rare outbreak of consensus in a city famous for fevered disagreement: in 91...

    The U.S. government plans to spend another $1 billion in Uganda through 2015 -- and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) will devote an additional $17.5 million specifically towards helping its Uganda unit to become more "adaptive, modern" and "effective." The $1 billion figure is part of the Obama Administration's $3.5 billion 2011-2015 Ugandan strategy, which aims to cut that nation's poverty in half ("$3.5 Billion 'Plan Uganda' Seeks to Cut Poverty in Half -- While Reducing 'Cattle Raiding,' Too" ; U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor, 5/18/11). The agency will hire a private contractor to carry out this "monitoring,...

    The legalization of marijuana by voters in the states of Colorado and Washington has sparked consternation in other parts of the world. Raymond Yans, head of the United Nation's International Narcotics Control Board, says the approvals send ‘‘a wrong message to the rest of the nation and it sends a wrong message abroad.’’ “What the voters in these states have overlooked is that marijuana is an important cash crop in many Third World countries,” Yans pointed out. “Legalization, if it catches on, will depress the prices that can be charged. This will negatively affect the farmers who grow it, the...

    Demographics alone are not destiny. There is nothing in this year’s election returns that guarantees Democrats a permanent majority in the years to come. President Obama and the Democratic Party earned the support of key groups — young people, single women, Latinos, African Americans, auto workers in the Rust Belt and millions of other middle-class Americans — because of our ideas. So, instead of resting on false assurances of underlying demographic advantages, the Democratic Party must follow through on our No. 1 priority, which the president set when he took office and reemphasized throughout this campaign: It is time to...
