Senate GOPs to Obama: Put Brakes
on Cybersecurity Executive Order
PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 10/2/2012 9:12:59 PM     Post Reply
A group of Republican senators today urged President Obama to work with Congress on cybersecurity legislation instead of ramming the languishing bill through by executive order. Democrats urged Obama last month to quickly issue an order to put into effect the legislation killed by a GOP filibuster in August. John Brennan, assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism, told Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation Chairman John D. Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) in a letter last month that “following congressional inaction, the President is determined to use existing executive branch authorities to protect our nation against

In a video obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama tells an audience of black ministers, including the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, that the U.S. government shortchanged Hurricane Katrina victims because of racism.“The people down in New Orleans they don’t care about as much!” Obama shouts in the video, which was shot in June of 2007 at Hampton University in Virginia. By contrast, survivors of Sept. 11 and Hurricane Andrew received generous amounts of aid, Obama explains. The reason? Unlike residents of majority-black New Orleans, the federal government

CARACAS – Sunday marked the culmination of Henrique Capriles Radonski´s surprisingly successful insurgent campaign to oust autocrat Hugo Chavez from the presidency of Venezuela. With a week to go before voting next Sunday, October 7, Spanish newspaper ABC estimated more one million Capriles supporters staged a caminata, walking eight miles, or in many cases further, to hear their candidate make a rousing 35 minute speech in the country’s capital city. The day was picture-perfect for a political demonstration: 75 degrees; bright, nearly cloudless skies; virtually no traffic.

President Obama and Mitt Romney are deadlocked among likely voters as they prepare to square off in their first presidential debate, according to the latest United Technologies/National Journal Congressional Connection Poll. The survey showed that voters remain resistant to either Obama or Romney holding full control of the federal government. Obama and Romney each pulled in 47 percent support in the poll among likely voters. It is among the narrowest margins of several presidential surveys published ahead of the debate this week. Other polls have shown the president with a slim lead. In this survey, while the race

Based on the transcript posted by the Chicago Sun Times, here are the 5 quotes from then Senator Obama’s 2007 speech at Hampton University that are most likely to raise eyebrows: Hurricane Katrina “was a powerful metaphor for what’s gone [in America] on for generations.” “It was also there – at Trinity United Church of Christ on the South Side of Chicago – that I met Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., who took me on another journey and introduced me to a man named Jesus Christ. It was the best education I ever had.” On his run for

There's nothing more entertaining than watching in real-time as an elite member of the corrupt media completely loses his cool over something he has no control over. And more importantly, something that might derail all the wicked work he's done to drag a failed president over the reelection finish line. Mark Halperin one of the leaders of what he calls "The Gang of 500" -- or those who control the media. He's the guy who yucks it up with Joe Scarborough every morning and who sits on political stories so he can later release them in books like "Game Change"

New Delhi - India and Pakistan engaged in an ugly war of words at the UN General Assembly (UNGA) on Monday, underscoring how the two countries remain trapped in their rhetoric on Jammu & Kashmir. It all started when foreign minister S M Krishna added an extra paragraph to his UN speech during the general debate on Monday, joining issue with Pakistani president Asif Ali Zardari's contention that Jammu & Kashmir was a sign of UN "failure".

Texas voters are joining those around the nation who are focusing on Wednesday's first presidential debate in Denver. But first, there's another debate that could greatly impact Texans.

As Sadler drives from town to town to see voters, he's short on funds but long on determination. And he says that personal drive extends to the first debate with Cruz.

Whether or not Barack Obama wins re-election in November, Joe Connor is afraid the president may release his father’s killer from prison.

On the eve of the first presidential debate, President Barack Obama maintains his national lead over Mitt Romney, but the Republican nominee is well within striking distance, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. Obama edges Romney by three points among likely voters, 49 percent to 46 percent, which is within the survey’s margin of error. Obama’s lead was five points, 50 percent to 45 percent, in the NBC/WSJ poll released two weeks ago, following the political conventions. But among a wider pool of registered voters, the president is ahead of Romney by seven points, 51 percent to

While much of the media has done a pretty good job of covering the terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi, including the fact that the White House lacks credibility with respect to a week-long narrative that blamed the attack on a YouTube video, nothing we've seen thus far from the media indicates that Obama will be made to pay a political price for a week of lies told by this administration. And this is a purely political and partisan choice the media's making … and a dangerous one. As we've seen with Mitt Romney, when properly motivated,

The Obama administration plans to buy an Illinois prison that at one point was considered for housing Guantanamo prisoners -- with Republican lawmakers now claiming the purchase would open the door for ultimately carrying out the Guantanamo transfer. Administration officials, though, denied that they were looking for a new home for Guantanamo inmates. They insisted the decision to buy Thomson Correctional Center, an under-used state prison 150 miles west of Chicago, was a move to alleviate overcrowding and create jobs in the process. "This is about public safety and 50 percent overcrowding in high-security prisons," one Justice Department official said.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney floated a $17,000 cap on tax deductions, a proposal that could reconcile his pledge to lower tax rates with his promise to make the plan deficit-neutral. Limiting individual tax deductions could also hit the rich more than the middle class, which could help Romney ensure his plan lowers the effective tax burden on the middle class even as it could raise the tax burden on the wealthy. Romney has been under criticism from the Obama campaign for offering policies they say would benefit the rich and hurt the middle class. Romney floated the idea the

Madison, Wis. - Working to broaden his popularity among military veterans, Republican Mitt Romney's campaign has sent letters to election officials in Wisconsin, Mississippi and Vermont demanding that the deadline for receiving ballots from military and overseas voters be extended. The letters sent in recent days on Romney's behalf by former U.S. Veterans Affairs Secretary Anthony Principi charge that election officials in the states missed the Sept. 22 deadline for mailing some ballots to overseas and military voters. A fourth letter was to be sent Tuesday to Michigan officials, according to Romney campaign spokesman Ryan Williams.
