Sierra Club Decides to Break
Law to Stop Keystone Pipeline

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Brandon Darby

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/24/2013 9:01:03 AM

The Sierra Club has announced its approval for a "one-time" use of civil disobedience. The civil disobedience is intended to step up their efforts to oppose the Keystone pipeline. Many of the other groups opposing Keystone have been engaging in civil disobedience as a tactic, including arson-based ecoterrorism. This will be the first time in the Sierra Club´s history that they have approved violating the law. In a January 22, 2013 press release, the Sierra Club states: The Sierra Club Board of Directors has approved the one-time use of civil disobedience for the first time in the organization’s 120-year history

Will they then be considered a terrorists group?

It is now clear (for those who do not know).

They (Sierra Club) know better than YOU (the Law)

Nothing like a bunch of eco-whacko-extremists given a pass by liberals...

Guess when you have a president in office who hangs out with actual bomb-tossing terrorists, it inspires the more idiotic masses.

Sierra Club - one of the biggest registered lobbying organizations in the United States. More K Street lobbyists to the civil disobedience ground.

The pipeline may be safe, but the Sierra Club is against it. End of conversation.

The Sierra Club Board of Directors has approved...among other things a hefty raise in their own salaries.

This group of thugs doesn´t give a damn about the environment, it´s all about shaking down the useful idiots and yelling fire in a theater!

They get the same impunity as unions.

Violence in the name of leftist causes is a ´duty´ not a crime.

Allowing conservative to even speak about their ideas is considered criminal, however.

All of these eco-terrorist groups should be hounded by the FBI, maybe the FEMA "camps" could be put to good use by "re-educating" these thugs.

The membership must be chomping at the bit to create civil disobedience or the board wouldn´t have needed to take this action.

Sierra Club advocates for higher gasoline prices which affects the poor and middle-class the most.
It also affects gov´t budgets since many gov´t agencies use gasoline too(which we pay for).

The ability to extract and develop U.S. resources will also affect taxable income that helps pay for teachers, police and firefighters.

And they want to stop Keystone simply to choke-off the tar-sand development in Canada, but it won´t affect that development but will hurt American jobs.

The club that Sierra is wielding is for Obama to use. Sierra wants Obama to pretend he is sensitive to the planet, that he doesn´t want to divide America or harm the children by agreeing to XL. So, Obama will call for a comission to study the pipeine into oblivion. To paraphrase, if they bring a pipe to the fight, I´ll bring a club.

Just like the "Promised land" movie was financed by the anti-energy independence powerbrokers in the ME, I suspect the Sierra Club, too, has recently come into a new source of funding for its activities. Of course, no one in the media will ever be curious about that and do a little digging to see if I´m right.....

If they really cared they would show their true dedication to the cause by giving up their oil or coal powered electricity, automobiles and any foods or other products that were grown, harvested, made, or transported using energy derived from coal or oil.

I´m sure that Soros money finds it´s way into the coffers of the Sierra Club, but does taxpayer money?

Yet, if there is any damage, I trust that the lawyers will sue them into oblivion.

This is great news. Since they are "okay" with stepping outside the law, then they should appreciate that there are many who will now likewise ignore any laws that might protect these crazy environmentalists from direct harm from other "crazy" folks.If the law doesn´t apply to you, then the law will not protect you. You want anarchy, you got it!

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Wendy Davis Ethical Questions Surface

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

For Hillary Clinton and Boeing,

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
