Why his Cap and Trade threat
to Congress is Obama´s -
and America´s - Rubicon

Washington Examiner [DC], by Mark Tapscott

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/15/2013 10:23:37 AM

Julius Caesar is reputed to have said, "The die is cast" as he crossed the Rubicon and headed south with his army to administer the coup de grace to what little was left of individual liberty under the old Roman Republic. President Obama has been doing some casting of his own of late, as evidenced during the State of the Union address in his threat to Congress regarding global warming. First came the warning: Congress must pass a cap-and-trade bill to combat global warming because, Obama said, "the 12 hottest years on record have all come in the last 15.

Obama is a delusional serial liar propped up by a failed ideology.

To call this president an "idiot" is to insult all idiots.

Of all the dumb ideas to come out of Washington, Cap and Trade ranks near the top. It would put a permanent limitation on American business while doing nothing about rogue nations like China, Russia,and India. The whole idea is based on the false premise of anthropogenic global warming.

The EPA is already attempting this but has hit a few snags. Most notably TX has taken them to court. First, EPA has to define a standard, in essence defining a CO2 level that is safe. Emitters that put out more than 100 tons in a non-compliant county or 250 tons in compliant county must register and be subject to regulation. The problem is that hydrocarbons release 3 tons of CO2 for each ton of starting hydrocarbon. So most schools, hospitals, office buildings, shopping malls, small businesses, and Al Gore´s home would exceed this trigger. That is the ultimate legal quandary, they want CO2 to be considered hazardous, but to have the consequences completely rewritten so the trigger is 25,000 tons because it isn´t really that hazardous.

Pope Francis faces church divided over
doctrine, global poll of Catholics finds
Washington Post, by Michelle Boorstein*    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/9/2014 5:13:25 AM     Post Reply
Most Catholics worldwide disagree with church teachings on divorce, abortion and contraception and are split on whether women and married men should become priests, according to a large new poll released Sunday and commissioned by the U.S. Spanish-language network Univision. On the topic of gay marriage, two-thirds of Catholics polled agree with church leaders. Overall, however, the poll of more than 12,000 Catholics in 12 countries reveals a church dramatically divided: Between the developing world in Africa and Asia, which hews closely to doctrine on these issues, and Western countries in Europe, North America and parts of Latin America, which

Putin’s Olympic Fantasy vs.

The opening Olympic ceremonies, broadcast last night on NBC, were most revealing in what they told us about Vladimir Putin’s Russia. It was the fantasy Russia, sometimes beautifully portrayed, not the reality. In that sense, Putin put together propaganda offensive in the style of the late Joseph Stalin, a tyrant who the current leader of Russia admires for successfully having created an empire with world influence and power. True, as Ed Driscoll writes, the narrative at the start of the program praised the Soviet era as one of history’s greatest “pivotal experiments.” Fortunately, NBC made the very wise move of hiring

Tamara Green Talks About Bill Cosby

Dylan Farrow’s accusations that Woody Allen, her adoptive father, molested her when she was seven have been all over the Internet this week, even though the allegations have been public knowledge for over two decades. As Gawker pointed out, Allen’s not the only beloved celebrity facing accusations of sexual assault that were much discussed, then largely forgotten -- multiple women have accused Bill Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting them. Cosby has repeatedly denied the allegations, and settled a 2006 lawsuit that included 13 accusers. Newsweek spoke to one of those women, Tamara Green, a former trial attorney now living in

Among its many stamps, the Postal Service has a series called “Made in America, Building a Nation.” The strip of “forever” stamps is a collection of iconic photographs of 20th-century industry featuring men and women toiling on railroads, skyscrapers and factory floors. A celebration of work and workers, the series quotes Helen Keller saying, “The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.” My, oh, my, how times have changed. America now has a government that views work as a trap and celebrates those

One of Alex Rodriguez´s lawyers has sued the New York Daily News, two of its reporters and former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik for defamation. Joseph Tacopina said in a complaint filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan that reporters Nathaniel Vinton and Michael O´Keefe "engineered" the filing of a disciplinary complaint by Kerik "so that they could publish a negative article about Tacopina" in December. The complaint said the reporters hoped to discredit Tacopina after he was retained by Rodriguez and called it "a conspiracy between two unethical newspaper reporters ... and a convicted felon and liar."

For Fans of Rocket From the Crypt, a

On a June night in 1998, Eric Greene approached the door at a now-defunct Austin, Texas, concert venue. Hoping to get in without a ticket, Mr. Greene flashed a little leg. The doorman glanced at his left calf, saw a rocket-ship tattoo, and waved him in. Mr. Greene had driven more than two hours to see Rocket from the Crypt, a San Diego sextet famous for sweaty live shows, a prolific output during its mid-1990s heyday, and an implicit bargain with its most fervent fans: Those who tattooed its logo to their body could get into its shows free.

With all the accusations, heated debate, and ugliness incited by the tweets and articles in the Dylan Farrow vs. Woody Allen battle, I think the only question that really matters is: Can this help anyone else? We should operate on the premise that it must. First, we should evaluate ourselves in the things we may have contributed with our tweets, blog posts, op-eds, and casual conversations. If we said nothing that helps the broad range of victims of sexual molestation, we have done a disservice to them. Simply insulting this family or anyone who may disagree with you does not count

Former New Orleans Mayor C. Ray Nagin on Friday testified during his federal corruption trial that he had not traded city business for bribes after Hurricane Katrina devastated the city. Nagin, 57, faces 21 charges of bribery, conspiracy, mail fraud and tax evasion related to contracts for millions of dollars in recovery work after the 2005 storm. During Nagin´s second day on the witness stand, prosecutor Matthew Coman asked Nagin about documents that authorities say are evidence that the former mayor schemed to extract money or favors from businesses in exchange for city contracts. Coman showed contracts signed by Nagin, checks written by

The Supreme Court decided Brown vs. Board of Education in 1954, but prominent Democrats in the South refused to accept the court’s ruling. For a decade thereafter, Democrats like Ross Barnett, Lester Maddox and George Wallace did everything they could to perpetuate race discrimination in public education. In one notorious instance in 1963, Democratic Governor Wallace stood in a schoolhouse door to personally block African-American students from enrolling at the University of Alabama. Something similar is happening with the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, a landmark of First Amendment jurisprudence. Democrats refuse to accept the decision; Barack Obama denounced it

Sure, t.A.t.U. may have been the most famous performers at today´s Olympics opening ceremony (you may remember them from their 2002 hit "All The Things She Said"). And yes, a malfunctioning snowflake may have been the biggest scandal so far. And OK, that animatronic bear mascot will be what you´ll remember (especially when you see him in your dreams). But the best part of the opening ceremonies? Hands down, it was definitely this very enthusiastic performance of Daft Punk´s "Get Lucky" by the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs (if that all sounds familiar, it´s because a video of them rehearsing

SOCHI, RUSSIA — The Jamaican bobsled team had a rough ride – even before hitting the icy track at the 2014 Winter Olympics. When two-man bobsled team members Winston Watts and Marvin Dixon arrived at Sochi’s airport they discovered that their bobsled’s blades, their sliding suits and helmets didn’t arrive with them. Despite the gear mishap — the stuff arrived on Thursday — and a missed connecting flight from Moscow to Sochi, it’s still all good for the funkiest and perhaps most famous bobsled team on Earth. The team is just happy to be in Sochi and thrilled that Jamaica’s

The Feminist Mystique

Feminism is not an idea or a collection of ideas but a collection of appetites wriggling queasily together like a bag of snakes. Feminism has nothing to do with the proposition that women should be considered whole and complete members of the body politic, though it has enjoyed great success marketing itself that way. (Virginia I. Postrel recently denounced me as a “creep” for suggesting that the substance of feminism, if indeed there is any, differs rather radically from its advertising campaigns.) A useful definition is this: “Feminism is the words ‘I Want!’ in the mouths of three or more

President Barack Obama went one-on-one with NBC Sports anchor Bob Costas in an interview before the Winter Olympics opening ceremony aired for the primetime audience in the U.S. Obama — a tired-looking Obama, we should add — talked to Costas from the White House, not from Sochi (the interview was recorded Thursday). Costas addressed that in his first question to the president. Why didn´t he attend the Olympics? And why didn´t the vice president, the first lady or any other high-ranking members of the president´s cabinet? Obama´s response: Unfortunately, I haven´t had a chance to go to the Olympics since

It is one of the most common - albeit, ineptly used - elements of the English language. Now, an American academic has suggested that the comma could be abolished as a punctuation mark. Professor John McWhorter claims removing commas from most modern U.S. texts would cause ´little loss of clarity´ - meaning they may now be in a state of obsolescence. He adds that internet users are becoming increasingly carefree in their use of the punctuation mark - with some professional writers following suit, according to The Times. ´[You] could take them out of a great deal of modern American

TWENTY-ONE years ago, when I first heard Mia Farrow had accused me of child molestation, I found the idea so ludicrous I didn’t give it a second thought. We were involved in a terribly acrimonious breakup, with great enmity between us and a custody battle slowly gathering energy. The self-serving transparency of her malevolence seemed so obvious I didn’t even hire a lawyer to defend myself. It was my show business attorney who told me she was bringing the accusation to the police and I would need a criminal lawyer. I naïvely thought the accusation would be dismissed out of hand because of course, I hadn’t molested Dylan

Appearing on MSNBC, former Secretary of State Colin Powell savaged the Republican Party of which he says he is still a member for catering to “elements” that are overtly hostile to people of other races or nationalities. Powell told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that there are groups within the GOP who “demonize people who don’t look like the way they’d like them to look.” He added that, for this reason, he believes the GOP needs him more than the Democratic Party needs him. Speaking with Mitchell about the need for immigration reform, Powell said that reforming the system was critical. “We are

A private girls´ school in Northern California wanted to incorporate Black History Month into lunch time, so it decided to serve fried chicken, watermelon, and cornbread. As the Associated Press reports, school officials are apologizing because that was a really, really horrible idea. The school´s principal wrote a letter to parents, who were offended, and said the school doesn´t "perpetrate racial stereotypes." Unfortunately, that´s exactly what they did. In honor of Black History Month, we´d like to explain exactly why your fried chicken and watermelon lunch is ill-advised, with the hope that people will find better ways to honor this

Geraldo Rivera took on Bill O’Reilly Friday night over whether O’Reilly was disrespectful to President Obama in their big Super Bowl interview. Rivera gave O’Reilly some benefit of the doubt, but other than that thought O’Reilly was a bit too confrontational and didn’t give Obama the kind of respect a president normally deserves. Rivera argued it was less like an interview and more like a meeting of the minds with the “President of Most of the White Guys of America” (O’Reilly) against the president of the rest of the country, and told O’Reilly that it was out of line for him

There´s been a lot of blathering about who the front-runner for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination is, and so far I´ve resisted taking part. But I guess I´m kind of curious: Is there much of a case to be made for anyone other than Paul Ryan? On the substantive side, Ryan sure seems like he´s setting himself up for a run. There´s his steady series of "unheralded" anti-poverty outreach trips that always manage to be just heralded enough to get sympathetic press coverage. He brokered a budget deal with Patty Murray that was businesslike and low-drama but didn´t alienate the tea

But now parents have hit out at popular must-have toy the Furby Boom after it emerged that some of the creatures have developed “inappropriate” second personalities which have upset their children.

The former Russian figure skater that lit the Olympic flame during the Sochi opening ceremony has deleted a racist photo of President and Mrs Obama that she had previously posted. Irina Rodnina is a triple Olympic champion figure skater and is close with Russian President Vladimir Putin so it came as little surprise that she was chosen to be one of the two athletes to have the key role in the opening ceremony. A scouring of her Twitter account by The Guardian found that she had posted a photo of Mr and Mrs Obama looking at someone who was holding
