What if a small group of these world leaders were to conclude that the principle risk to the earth comes from the actions of the rich countries? In order to save the planet, the group decides: isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring this about? – Maurice Strong, 1990
The senate version of the climate bill came out today, John Kerry’s,The American Power Act. Glenn explains how carbon credits work, how jobs will be destroyed because prices will go up, and how much more energy will cost – using an average baker as an example. He also gives details of the global syndicate that is drawing the noose tighter as the Chicago Carbon Exchange was just sold to an international firm, and he speaks about Maurice Strong, former UN Secretary General for the Earth Summit, who is now on the Board of Directors of the Chicago Carbon Exchange and has been involved in global organizations for just about forever. Glenn sends out the call to all the Watchdogs to find anything and everything about Maurice Strong on the internet and send it on to him at Becktips@foxnews.com.
…or…The True Beginning Of The Conservative Shift Will Not Be Televised.
I will actually be rather surprised if a Djou/Conservative win even shows up on the Drudge Report as it appears both major parties are trying to keep this one on the down low. The DCCC has even decided to throw in the towel and not ‘invest’ anymore resources into squabbling, greedy dems.
Djou leads with 39.5 percent of the vote, followed by former Congressman Ed Case and Senate President Colleen Hanabusa, who are tied at 25.5 percent, according to the poll by Aloha Vote, a Hawaii subsidiary of Merriman River Group (MRG), a Massachusetts research organization. Nearly 10 percent are undecided.
“He’s got it all but wrapped up,” Matt Fitch, executive director of Merriman River Group, said of Djou’s chances in the May 22 special election. “The only thing in question is who finishes second.”
More than half the respondents â€” 52.6 percent â€” had already voted. And of that group, Djou got 45 percent of the vote, one reason it’s so difficult to imagine trends changing in any significant way between now and May 22.
If Charles Djou wins a long-time dem held seat, you won’t be hearing any “Djou heard round the world” statements from the MSM. What you will be hearing is the following tale of an internal struggle inside the Democratic Party. You won’t be hearing about residents awakening to the level of taxation and interference from state and federal agencies. You won’t be given the opportunity to understand the enormity of the shift happening in a state that has been a nanny state since it’s inception fifty years ago. You’ll just be hearing about Elena Kagan’s partner preference, the Times Square Bomber and whatever else the WH can throw up against the wall to grab your attention.
Charles Djou will be breaking a five decade dem stranglehold on this state with the blessing of a population that is starting to awaken to the slave role they have been placed in by their ‘uncs’ Daniel Inouye and Daniel Akaka, and their auntie Mazie Hirono.
Though the MSM and the Democratic Party want to blame the true beginning of the conservative shift towards smaller government on dems feuding amongst themselves, don’t be fooled. Scott Brown was the only type of republican that could actually be elected to Dead Kennedy’s seat in Massachusetts with so many average Americans losing their wealth through current Dem policies. Rest assured, Scott Brown is a progressive liberal republican as Charles Djou is not. In the likelyhood that the voters elect Charles to Neil Abercrombie’s forfeited seat, you probably won’t be hearing about all those residents in district 1 who are now becoming more and more fed up with the federal government’s spendy ways. You also won’t be hearing about how Charles Djou is the only candidate of the top three that lives in District 1.
HONOLULU — Across the country, Democrats are on the defense, laboring to put out political fires sparked by angry voters and emboldened Republicans. Even Hawaii, the bluest of blue states, where a Democratic machine has controlled politics for the five decades since statehood, has become a dangerous hot spot for the party in power.
But here’s the catch: The Democrats started this fire themselves.
Democrats here might lose a House seat in a special election this month because of a feud between two candidates that has inflamed tensions within Hawaii’s ethnic voting blocs and between the state’s Democratic establishment and the party’s national leaders.
The result could be a victory by plurality for the GOP candidate. That would upend Hawaii’s political order and, like the recent Senate race in Massachusetts, simultaneously hand Republicans a compelling narrative of Democratic defeat — this time in President Obama‘s birthplace.
“It’s a nightmare for Democrats,” said Dan Boylan, a University of Hawaii history professor.
There is no primary to replace Neil Abercrombie, a 10-term congressman who resigned to run for governor. So the race in Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District will be decided in a winner-takes-all election on May 22.
For weeks, the two leading Democrats — state Senate President Colleen Hanabusa and former congressman Ed Case — were locked in a dead heat with Republican Charles Djou, but a new poll shows Djou pulling ahead in the 14-candidate contest. He led with 36 percent of likely voters in a Honolulu Advertiser poll released last Sunday, followed by Case at 28 percent and Hanabusa at 22 percent.
In a staring contest with Sen. Daniel Inouye over the high-stakes May 22 Hawaii special election, national Democrats blinked first and bowed to the wishes of the Aloha State political titan.
As a consequence, some Democrats say, it could cost the party a House seat next week.
Republican Honolulu City Councilman Charles Djou appears poised to capture the heavily Democratic 1st District next week as a result of a three-way contest in which a split Democratic vote is making it increasingly unlikely that either former Rep. Ed Case or state Senate President Colleen Hanabusa can win enough votes to capture the seat.
At the heart of the Democratic predicament is the role played by Inouye, a veteran of nearly a half-century in the Senate and the undisputed heavyweight champion of Hawaii politics.
Inouye’s outspoken and unflinching support of Hanabusa, even as Washington wanted to throw its weight behind the better-known Case in an effort to concentrate the Democratic vote behind a single candidate, has led national party officials to retreat from the contest and leave it to chance.
Such a catchy name for such a nasty bill. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this is the Senate version of Cap and Tax to Death. The first 820 pages have been lined out, but that leaves 937 pages to read. We must all saddle up once more to stop this newest progressive attempt at creating yet another revenue stream for the elites that will cripple this country.
Considering everything that is happening in the financial markets and the frakkin’ global economy and sovereign debt the elitists put in place to ‘stop war’, I thought it might be a good idea to put this video up front and center. Â Keep in mind this movie is a few years old, so the numbers are massively smaller in the movie than now.
I.O.U.S.A. – One Nation. Under Debt. In Stress.
Wake up, America! We’re on the brink of a financial meltdown. I.O.U.S.A. boldly examines the rapidly growing national debt and its consequences for the United States and its citizens. Burdened with an ever-expanding government and military, increased international competition, overextended entitlement programs, and debts to foreign countries that are becoming impossible to honor, America must mend its spendthrift ways or face an economic disaster of epic proportions.
Once again, the Thomas More Law Center is at the forefront of the court cases against ‘government gone wild!’. Readers are going to absolutely love (snark) some of the arguments being put forward by bambi’s lawyers.
Washington — Critics who allege that Congress overstepped the U.S. Constitution by requiring Americans to carry health insurance are “flatly wrong,” the Obama administration said Wednesday in its first court defense of the landmark health care law.
Congress acted well within its power to regulate interstate commerce and to provide for the general welfare, Justice Department lawyers argued in a 46-page brief filed in federal district court in Detroit. For the courts to overturn President Barack Obama’s signature domestic legislation would amount to unwarranted interference with the policymaking authority of Congress, they added.
I read the following article this morning, and wanted to point out that the guy who supposedly doesn’t know how to operate an xBox or PS3 is advising world leaders on loaning trillions in bailout cash to Greece and whoever else needs it at the moment to try to slow the global trainwreck down to a manageable crash. If you read this article and you even approach the idea that any of this was Barry’s idea, and that he got it done without a few dozen central bank presidents breathing down Merkel’s neck, you are living in ‘My Little Pony’ world.
