Groups push Raul Grijalva
for Interior Secretary spot

Arizona Daily Star [Tucson,AZ], by Becky Pallack

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 12/11/2012 8:45:54 AM

A coalition of 238 environmental, ethnic and other groups sent a letter to President Obama Monday recommending Rep. Raúl Grijalva as the next interior secretary. Additionally, a petition on WhiteHouse.gov urging Obama to appoint Grijalva to the post had 1,474 signatures as of Monday afternoon. Grijalva,, who was considered a leading contender for the post four years ago, when Ken Salazar was appointed, could not be reached for comment. He is now seen as one of several possible candidates to succeed Salazar, if Salazar steps down, which isn´t definite but is widely expected.

Comments:
Sounds about right. In 2009, the American Socialists announced that he was one of the Congressmen in their caucus.

He can perfectly represent the plight of the rare bloated wart-ridden desert toad. If you don´t believe me, find his picture.

If this extremist is selected for Interior, it at least provides a special election opportunity for the GOP. Advance warning - don´t answer any abortion questions other than to say that its between a woman and her care giver.

Let´s hope Kerry and other Dim senators and congressmen get selected for cabinet positions. Rather have a RINO like Scott Brown who at least votes with Repubs 48% of time rather than 0%.

Finally, when will there be a petition to appoint Sandra Fluke assistant legal counsel for HHS? We know its coming. Perhaps she´ll replace Mrs Petraeus at the Fed.

Does Obie choose Cabinet secretaries via petitions at whitehouse.gov?

This guy is a disaster. But he could easily round up many times 1400+ of his amigos to sign a petition on his behalf.

Barack Hussein Obama, the Bolshevik at 1600 Road-to-Serfdom, has a proven talent for making everything worse. Salazar´s envirofascism will seem mild once the Grijalva person brings brown social justice to Interior.

Obama should put this Grijalva in charge of immigration law enforcement, because there he could do the most long term damage to the country, isn´t that what Obama´s second term is to be?

The root cause of the problem is the lack of a federal budget. Where is the lease revenue that Interior used to get for oil leases in the Gulf of Mexico, in Alaska, and off the coasts of the left coast? What happened to the grazing rights revenue that used to be collected from lands turned over to mustangs? Are the Brazilians producing oil just south of BP blowout paying any royalties to the US government? If government needed to offset 95 billion each year of Payroll Tax holiday, they would know the answers to these questions.

Grijalva is to the left of Elizabeth Warren. He´s to the left of the planet. He´s a dour, pickled, unkempt, loathsome pile of filth. If he were Interior Secretary he´d try to give the West back to the Indians. The world truly has gone insane.

RALEIGH, N.C. — Appearing on CBS News´ "Face the Nation" Sunday to talk about the winter storm that shut down the state last week, Gov. Pat McCrory sidestepped a pointed question about his position on climate change. The question from host Bob Schieffer came at the end of a segment on North Carolina´s response to the storm. "Governor, a couple of years ago, you made a remark that caught a lot of people´s attention. You said that global warming is ´in God´s hands,´" Schieffer said. "After what you´ve - going through this thing, do you still feel that way? Is

About 15 years ago, Lee Scott heard the news that a Phoenix police officer had been shot and killed in the line of duty. He phoned the main line of the Phoenix Police Department and was forwarded to the employee-assistance unit. Scott, founder of Shadow Mountain Mortuary, had a simple proposal. Let him take care of the entire funeral service, he said. At no cost. The officer was just one of at least a dozen fallen Phoenix police officers who would be laid to rest under Scott’s respectful watch at no cost to the families, police Cmdr. Tracy Montgomery said.

The Koch brothers have a seemingly bottomless pot of cash this election year — and no one knows it better than Sen. Kay Hagan. Americans for Prosperity, a group co-founded by the conservative billionaires, has already dropped $8.2 million on TV, radio and digital ads in an effort to defeat the North Carolina Democrat. According to sources tracking media buys, the group has so far spent more in North Carolina than all Democratic outside groups in every Senate race in the country — combined.

Appeals court: NC cannot
offer only anti-abortion plates
WRAL News [Raleigh,NC], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Fiesta del sol- 2/11/2014 2:33:25 PM     Post Reply
Richmond, Va. — A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld a 2012 court ruling that North Carolina´s decision to issue special anti-abortion license plates is unconstitutional because the state doesn´t offer similar plates supporting abortion rights. In a unanimous ruling, a three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that the proposed "Choose Life" plates represent "blatant viewpoint discrimination squarely at odds with the First Amendment. "The decision upholds a December 2012 ruling by U.S. District Judge James Fox in Raleigh, which came 13 months after he blocked the state from issuing the plates while a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union was pending.

GOP plan to repair
Obamacare,not repeal it

There´s no doubt the vast majority of Republicans in Congress would repeal Obamacare if they could. Most GOP "alternative" bills begin with a clause to repeal the Affordable Care Act before proceeding to outline new policies to put in its place. Of course, GOP lawmakers don´t have any hope of actually repealing the law as long as Barack Obama, and his veto pen, are in the White House.Now some Republicans are looking at what might be done to undo as much as possible of the Democrats´ national health care scheme without actually repealing it. If Obamacare´s problems continue to mount

The air froze over on “The View” when Barbara Walters made a catty comment about Elizabeth Vargas’ battle with alcohol addiction. As “20/20” anchor Vargas appeared on the show Thursday to discuss her recovery, she explained how she kept her battle a secret from her ABC colleagues.But Walters snipped, “We all knew!”Vargas looked “like she had been slapped in the face, and the atmosphere turned Polar Vortex,” noted one spy. The barbed comment did not impress ABC brass, who thought Barbara was out of line, we are told. Walters later called Vargas to apologize.Last night, they made light of the cringe-worthy

The Wake County Public School System has removed an assignment from its middle-school history curriculum after a Knightdale mother complained that it was racially insensitive. Amaya Melvin´s eighth-grade class at East Wake Middle School is studying the Civil War, and the students were given an essay assignment entitled "I am a slave." "For her to have to put herself in the shoes of a slave, for her to complete the assignment, she had to be a slave at the moment. I didn´t think that was appropriate," said Amaya´s mother, Ariel Melvin-Hall, who is black. "It´s harsh. It cuts deep."

Some Arizonans who secured health coverage through the federal marketplace are now finding that their new plans drastically limit the providers they can use. Metro Phoenix and Tucson residents who signed up for plans with so-called narrow networks have discovered fewer options for primary-care doctors, specialists, hospitals, pharmacies, labs and clinics. And some rural Arizonans purchasing the least-expensive plan in their communities have discovered that the nearest participating doctor is 200 miles away. Insurers and brokers acknowledge that some consumers are confused by the narrow networks, a strategy health insurers embrace to lower costs.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) didn’t like what he heard in the foreign policy section of last night’s State of the Union. Literally.“The world is literally about to blow up,” Graham told Roll Call, strongly criticizing Obama’s promise to veto any bill tightening sanctions on Iran during the interim nuclear deal.“The world as I know was not remotely described by the president,” he continued. “Explain to me what happens if the Syrian conflict goes on another year and Assad continues to win…Iraq is disintegrating. The whole region is moving toward chaos, and we’re doing nothing. We’re talking about limiting drones?”

In an extended rant to Joe Hogan, posted on vulture.com and published in New York magazine, Baldwin recounted his run-ins with paparazzi, his gay slur controversies, and his ill-fated talk show on MSNBC--but he reserved special resentment for Breitbart. "There is a core of outlets that are pushing these stories out. Breitbart clutters the blogosphere with ´Alec Baldwin, he’s the Devil, he’s Fidel Baldwin,´" Baldwin claimed.

The Obama administration is launching an “attack” on the Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D programs as part of Obamacare that will result in higher costs and fewer health care options for seniors, according to a U.S. House subcommittee. The administration is quietly introducing “policies that would undermine the integrity and success of the Medicare Part D program” according to the subcommittee. President Bush signed Medicare Part D into law in 2003 to subsidize prescription drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries. The Daily Caller has learned that the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Health will hold a hearing Feb.

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

The Obama administration warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday not to react too aggressively to the fast-moving developments in Ukraine, where pro-Western demonstrators forced the nation’s Moscow-backed president from power over the weekend. National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said the situation unfolding in Kiev “reflects the will of the Ukrainian people and the interests of the United States and Europe,” and that Russia would be making a “grave mistake” if it sends in military forces to try to reverse the developments — or to seize control of pro-Moscow eastern Ukraine.

WASHINGTON — President Obama plans to announce on Tuesday the opening of two new manufacturing institutes in the Chicago and Detroit areas as part of a larger plan to use public-private partnerships to advance his agenda despite opposition from Republicans in Congress. Several federal agencies will join forces with companies and universities to run the institutes, which will be devoted to bridging the gap between applied research and product development, according to an administration official familiar with the plans. Each institute will function as a “teaching factory,” the official said, and will provide training for workers while also helping companies get the
