Dems look to Obama to punish
Michigan over labor vote

Washington Times, by Andrea Billups

LANSING, Mich. — A top Michigan Democrat is looking to President Obama to deliver retribution to Republicans after the GOP-dominated state legislature approved a package of bills that could make this stronghold of union power the nation’s 24th right-to-work state as early as next week. Senate Democratic Leader Gretchen Whitmer, who on Thursday called the votes to approve the right-to-work measure “petty and vindictive politics,” sparked more backlash Friday when she said she wants the president, who is set to visit Detroit on a previously scheduled political trip on Monday,

Comments:
Not just "Dems", as the headline states, but Michigan Dems. How ´bout them apples?

Is "retribution" one of the enumerated powers of the prez? When did that happen?

Snyder has started the process for Detroit to declare bankrupcy so having billions spent on mass transit in downtown Detroit is a total waste of money so Obama can keep it and if Obama withholds money for the new bridge, who cares?

Whitmer was on Greta last night. Greta described the right-to-work bill - that workers could not be forced to join a union and pay dues in order to keep their jobs.

She asked Whitmer numerous times why she opposed that. Despite saying she was absolutely against such a law, she never answered Greta´s question. That probably tells you about all you need to know - FORCED unionization means FORCED contributions to the Dems.

The comments by this mindless 41-year-old Michigan senator should come as no surprise to anyone. Many in her age bracket believe they just elected a president whose first duty is to The Union and his second duty is to ´go after´ Republicans who dare to practice free speech and to vote for the FREEDOM of employees to choose.

One can look at Michigan´s sorry condition to conclude what ´forced union´ membership has created.

If Whitmer has a problem with this bill passing the first hurdle towards signage, she should be directing her anger at Bob King of the UAW and Mark Brewer, MIDP. King & Brewer had an ally in Synder to do just about anything the unions wanted him to do, and then came Prop 2. The extended their reach and bit the hand that fed them. On another note, Michigan doesn´t need another bridge nor could we care less about mass transit coming to Detroit. There are far better things that need to be done than wasting Tax Payer Dollars on government pet projects.

The only transit needed in Detroit is the surveyor´s transit trying to decide which area of the city to level next. Detroit is a cesspool that needs to go away. Scatter those that live there and turn the area back into farm land. Do away with those idiots that are elected to Congress by the idiots that live in Detroit.

The Four Faces of the Republican Party
National Interest, by Henry Olsen    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/3/2014 3:18:57 PM     Post Reply
THE COMMON wisdom holds that the GOP 2016 presidential race will boil down to a joust between the “establishment” and the “insurgents.” The former will allegedly be more moderate and the latter more conservative. Since most polls for two decades have shown that around two-thirds to 70 percent of self-described Republicans call themselves conservative, this elite narrative will focus on just how much the establishment candidate will need to be pulled to the right in order to fend off his insurgent challenger. And since the Tea Party has clearly become a vocal and powerful insurgent element in the GOP, the

Feds Provide Billions to UAE Airline

The federal government has provided more than a billion dollars in loan guarantees since 2009 to an Arab airline that has literally wiped Israel off the map. Etihad Airways, a United Arab Emirates-based airline, scrubbed any mention of Israel or its major cities from a map showing its travel routes in the area. Etihad receives $425,000 annually from the Department of Homeland Security, the New York Post reported on Monday. But those subsidies are a fraction of U.S. taxpayer support for the company. The Export-Import Bank, a U.S. federal agency that subsidizes purchases of American products abroad, has backed loans worth nearly $1.3

If Given Control, McConnell

WASHINGTON — Senator Mitch McConnell still has a few obstacles to overcome to become Senate majority leader next year. First, he has to win his own primary and general election back in Kentucky, where his popularity has suffered. Then his fellow Republicans have to pick up at least six seats for the party to take over the Senate for the first time since 2006. It is not inconceivable at this point, and Mr. McConnell has been giving considerable thought to how he would run the Senate if given the chance. Spoiler alert: It is not how he thinks it is being

On the centenary of World War I, Europe´s suddenly facing a crisis of Russian aggression. Why NATO must make a show of strength and reassure its Eastern members. Ever since Russia’s not-so-stealthy invasion of the Crimea in Ukraine at the end of the week, rhetoric has rung out in Washington and in Europe like a call to arms. Except that it’s not—or not yet. “There will be costs,” said President Barack Obama. Secretary of State John Kerry upped the ante, condemning “the invasion and occupation of Ukrainian territory.” NATO called an emergency meeting on Sunday to address “Russia’s military action in Ukraine.

What to do about Putin´s
invasion of Ukraine?

It is obvious that Russia is conducting an invasion of Ukraine. This violates the 1994 Budapest Memorandum between Russia, Ukraine, the United States and Britain, in which each party agreed to respect the territorial integrity of Ukraine. Russia´s claim that it is acting to protect the rights of Russian citizens in Ukraine is redolent of Hitler´s claims that he was taking over Czechoslovakia and the free city of Danzig and attacking Poland to protect ethnic Germans. Russia has treaty rights in its naval base in Crimea, but it has gone much farther by taking over the whole peninsula; it is

Putin Goes to War

Vladimir Putin, the Russian President and autocrat, had a plan for the winter of 2014: to reassert his country’s power a generation after the collapse of the Soviet Union. He thought that he would achieve this by building an Olympic wonderland on the Black Sea for fifty-one billion dollars and putting on a dazzling television show. It turns out that he will finish the season in a more ruthless fashion, by invading a peninsula on the Black Sea and putting on quite a different show—a demonstration war that could splinter a sovereign country and turn very bloody, very quickly.

He alleges that when he returned to the counter to ask for more, managers refused.

To judge from the New York Times — which, by the way, no rational human should ever do — the Texas primary on Tuesday is all about who occupies the absolutely, genuinely, no-kiddin’ geographically farthest right position on the ideological spectrum, where none thrive save those who oppose regulation of firearms that could be used to wing an abortionist. Nah. Nothing that exciting or even plausible. The Texas Republican primary field, the one that counts, emits its share of noise, but rumors of an imminent Tea Party, or Tea Party-affiliated, takeover of the state are a little bit over the top:

WASHINGTON — The Environmental Protection Agency plans to unveil a major new regulation on Monday that forces oil refiners to strip out sulfur, a smog-forming pollutant linked to respiratory disease, from American gasoline blends, according to people familiar with the agency’s plans. When burned in gasoline, sulfur blocks pollution-control equipment in vehicle engines, which increases tailpipe emissions linked to lung disease, asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, aggravated heart disease and premature births and deaths. Proponents of the rule say it will be President Obama’s most significant public health achievement in his second term, but opponents, chiefly oil refiners, say it is unnecessarily

The capitals of Europe have gone from complacency to a near panic in the last 72 hours, not simply over the crisis in the Ukraine but in the growing awareness that for at least the last half decade they’ve been standing on a trapdoor. At least president Obama, the leader of the Free World, has. The arms control agreements with Moscow; the “deal” with Syria; Obama’s negotiations to disarm Iran of nuclear weapons; the Russian-controlled northern distribution network through which NATO forces in Afghanistan are supplied — every one of these — once counted as glittering achievements, the crown jewels of the

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.
