New York City´s Imperial
Mayor Bloomberg Bans Again

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 2/14/2013 8:54:43 PM

Autocracy: Still pulsing with the power from outlawing big servings of sweet drinks, Michael Bloomberg now wants to run Styrofoam out of his city. Clearly, he believes that everyone has to live exactly as he wants them to live. During Thursday´s State of the City address, New York Mayor Bloomberg called for a ban on Styrofoam food packaging. It´s all a part of his crusade to eliminate smoking, sugary drinks, salt and other items he doesn´t like — and, hence, thinks no one else should have.

I live in NYC and can´t recall the last time I saw anything in styrofoam containers or cups.

Takeout comes in cardboard or clear plastic and coffee in paper cups.

I am originally from New York, Brooklyn to be exact and I´ve always thought of my fellow NY´rs as tough strong minded individualists. I think that old gang of mine had better tell their sons and daughters to get up on their hind legs, stretch their backbone and get rid of that tin pot dictator as quickly as they can. Start a movement for a recall and he´d probably be out of the city by the end of next week.

The chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus is calling for House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to be stripped of his gavel for his behavior at a contentious IRS hearing on Wednesday. Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) told Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Thursday that Issa’s conduct in the hearing — which included cutting off the microphone of Rep.

OXON HILL, Md. -- Republican leaders implored conservatives to offer a stark contrast to President Barack Obama´s policies and stand firm on principles as a way to win back Senate control in the fall elections and prepare for the 2016 presidential campaign. Thursday marked the first day of the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, which brought together prospective White House candidates, conservative opinion leaders and tea party activists from coast to coast. With the party facing a tug of war for the soul of the GOP, Republicans made the case that they must unite and offer a different path in the

President Obama has signed an executive order today imposing sanctions on individuals he said violate Ukrainian sovereignty or are "stealing the assets" of the Ukrainian people. Obama told reporters at a White House briefing the sanctions were meant to "impose a cost" on Russia´s action in Crimea. Obama emphasized that new visa restrictions the U.S. placed on those who are opposing the Ukraine government “continue our efforts to impose a cost on Russia and those responsible for the situation in Crimea.” “We took these steps in close coordination with our European allies,” said in a brief statement in the White House briefing room.

Eagle Forum president and conservative author Phyllis Schlafly condemned GOP leadership efforts to compromise with Democrats on immigration, telling her audience that Republicans are “fools” to back any kind of deal that includes citizenship for illegal immigrants. “Republicans are fools to to support any kind of amnesty, or to import foreigners who will support big government and big spending,” she said during a blunt speech at The National Security Action in Washington, D.C. “Why is anyone surprised that three fourths of Hispanics and Asians voted for Obama during the 2012 election? … Sixty-nine percent of immigrants support Obamacare.” Schlafly cited a battery

In a joint town hall with Telemundo and Univision, President Obama made a pledge that his administration will not use Obamacare sign up data to deport illegal aliens: "Will we hear from you a pledge, a personal promise, that the information provided in the registration process will not be used for deportation purposes in this country?" "Absolutely," Obama said, putting his hand down for emphasis. "It´s true that the undocumented are not eligible [for Obamacare], that´s how the law was written, but if you are a U.S. citizen or you have a legal presence in this country, you are eligible," he said.

A new poll by the Washington Post shows that amnesty is a vote-loser for GOP legislators. The poll of 1,002 adults shows that pluralities of independents and moderates oppose candidates who support amnesty, which was euphemistically dubbed “a path to citizenship” by the poll designers. The poll showed that 41 percent of independents and 37 percent of moderates were less likely to vote for an amnesty-backer. Only 28 percent of independents and moderates said they were more likely to vote for a candidate who backs amnesty. The poll showed legislators’ support for amnesty inflicted a 12-point penalty from registered voters, 28 points from white

With just weeks left to sign up for health care under the Affordable Care Act, Michelle Obama zeroed in on recruiting the crucial young adult demographic during a visit to a Miami community health center Wednesday. The first lady congratulated a handful of residents who had just enrolled during an intimate event, asking one woman whether she had gotten her son to enroll. “Tell him he could get hit by a car. It’s crazy. They don’t think about that kind of stuff,” said Obama, who moments later applauded another mother for signing herself and adult son up for insurance plans.

During a hearing of the House Oversight Committee into allegations that the Internal Revenue Service scrutinized conservative groups’ tax-exempt status filings unduly, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) exploded at Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (D-CA). Cummings charged that the way in which the proceedings were being conducted were “Un-American.” In apparent protest, Issa then walked out of the committee hearing. While making a statement before the committee, Issa stood up and asked Cummings to yield. “If you will sit down and allow me to ask a question,” Cummings insisted. “I am a member of a Congress of the United States of America.” “I am

More than one million U.S. schoolchildren stopped buying school lunches during the 2012-2013 academic year, after new nutrition standards championed by first lady Michelle Obama took effect.

Where Lois Lerner goes, drama follows. On Wednesday, the former IRS officer again invoked the Fifth before the House Oversight Committee. That precipitated a heated exchange between the committee’s Republican chairman, Darrell Issa, and Democratic ranking member Elijah Cummings, who called the hearings “un-American.” And that spat has become the story. No doubt that is exactly what Cummings had in mind. Because it distracts attention from the substance of the hearings — and from the questions raised by e-mails and public remarks Lois Lerner wrote, received or made when she was IRS Director of Tax Exempt Organizations.

WASHINGTON — Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers who are perhaps the best-known patrons of conservative Republican politics, are bespectacled and in their 70s. They look genial enough. But Democrats are embarking on a broad effort that aims to unmask the press-shy siblings and portray them, instead, as a pair of villains bent on wrecking progressive politics. On Thursday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is starting a digital campaign that will use Internet ads and videos, as well as social media, to tie Republican Senate candidates to the policies and actions of the Koch brothers.

President Obama strongly denounced the Senate on Wednesday for failing to confirm a top nominee to the Justice Department. In a statement released by the White House, Obama said Debo Adegbile´s defeat is a "travesty" and is based on unfair attacks. "The Senate’s failure to confirm Debo Adegbile to lead the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice is a travesty based on wildly unfair character attacks against a good and qualified public servant," Obama said. "Mr. Adegbile’s qualifications are impeccable." Obama said the main attack used against Adegbile -- Republicans denounced his work on behalf of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal
