Obama Admits: ´Energy Is Going
to Be a Little More Expensive´

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Wynton Hall

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/20/2013 9:20:40 AM

During a Friday Google+ hangout session, President Barack Obama conceded that his policies to address climate change will raise energy costs, a fact that could prove uncomfortable for Democrats in areas reliant on fossil fuel power plants: I have to tell you that there are some Democrats, for example, who represent states or districts that are heavily reliant on old power plants and are more heavily manufacturing based. And the truth is that if you produce power using old power plants, you’re going to be emitting more carbon, but, to upgrade those plants means energy is going

Comments:
The only thing missing from his statement is, "just as I planned." I utterly despise this anti-American destroyer. The fact that he is not even slightly concerned is outrageous.

He is attaining his goal of shutting down America and forcing us to be dependent on the middle east.

So the propaganda turns from "necessarily skyrocket" to "a little bit more expensive".

The typical mr. o. plan will be a new and enormous carbon tax with a promise of Keystone pipeline jobs that will be created sometime in the vague future.

Rising gas prices, rising medical costs, rising energy rates. Keep it coming, Obama, because I don´t know any other way to teach (half of) the American voters a hard lesson.

"Energy is going to be a little more expensive"??!

In a videotaped 2008 primary-campaign interview Obama revealed his dream of ending oil and coal use in the U.S., pointing out that the only realistic way to achieve that will be to drive prices to a level where they are no longer cost-competitive with ´sustainable´, ´green´ energy sources. (Terms put into quotes to emphasis their use as delusional euphemisms by the Left...)

So scratch that "little more expensive" baloney. What Ø means to say here is "prohibitively expensive".

How I hate the MSM´s aggressive propagandizing on behalf of the very man who would strip their 1st-amendment protections if he ever got the chance.

Democrats Want to turn ‘Outrageous’
IRS Abuse Into Official Policy
PJ Media, by Bryan Preston    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/28/2014 10:38:37 PM     Post Reply
Well, this is one way to handle corruption and government abuse: Make it the official thing to do. A group of Democratic senators urged the Obama administration on Thursday to cap the amount of political activity that tax-exempt 501(c)(4) groups can engage in at 5 to 15 percent. The 15 senators, in public comments on a proposed regulation change that grew out of the IRS targeting controversy, said that the rules need to ensure that 501(c)(4)s can’t use their tax-exempt status to go around campaign finance rules. “You will undoubtedly receive complaints from certain corners that these proposed rules will

Editor’s Note: This is the text of Senator Ted Kennedy’s opening statement before the Committee on the Judiciary at the hearing on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, September 18, 1992, the model for the Arizona law which has been so controversial. We will come to order. The brave pioneers who founded America came here in large part to escape religious tyranny and to practice their faiths free from government interference. The persecution they had suffered in the old world convinced them of the need to assure for all Amer­icans for all time the right to practice their religion unencumbered by the

White House records reveal the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has completed its review of the DOJ rule, one of 23 executive actions ordered by President Obama more than a year ago in response to the 2012 shooting massacre in Newtown, Conn. The exact timing of the planned action was not clear Friday afternoon. The final rule sets out three changes to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), created 20 years ago in an effort to keep guns out of the wrong hands. The updated regulations will grant tribal police access to NICS and authorize law enforcement agencies to use

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is scrapping a controversial study about newsroom practices. “The FCC will not move forward with the Critical Information Needs study," an agency spokesman said Friday, referring to an FCC study that would have involved going into U.S. newsrooms to examine their editorial practices. The backlash to the study grew after a Republican on the FCC, Ajit Pai, published an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal warning that the agency "plans to send researchers to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run." Responding to the backlash,

According to reports coming from the Pentagon, a dozen planes carrying 2000 [Russian] troops have landed in Crimea, Ukraine. President Obama made a statement about the troop movement late Friday afternoon, the first time he´s made a statement on the tensions in Ukraine since February 19. "The Ukrainian people deserve the opportunity to pursue their own country," Obama said. "We are deeply concerned about military movements by Russia inside Ukraine...Any violation of Ukrainian sovereignty would be deeply destabilizing to the region." Obama stressed there will be consequences should Russia and President Putin choose to

Newly released documents from the Clinton Presidential Library reveal that Hillary Clinton and her aides have been struggling to manage her media image since the early days of her husband’s administration. The problem is one that´s dogged her throughout her career, hobbled her 2008 presidential bid and could continue to be an issue in a potential 2016 White House campaign. According to the new papers that span Bill Clinton’s eight-year term, the then-first lady’s aides created strategies to maximize her exposure in venues where she felt most comfortable, like town-hall style events and local media, noting her “aversion” to

President Obama on Friday offered a staunch defense of his agenda in a fiery speech to the Democratic National Committee winter meeting, where he said Republicans were "0 for 2" in trying to turn back his agenda. Obama, rallying the party faithful ahead of November´s crucial midterm elections, urged Democrats to make Republicans go “0 for 3.” “The top Republican in the Senate said his top priority wasn´t to create jobs or expand opportunity, but to beat me,” said Obama. “So let´s look at the scorecard. They´re 0 for 2. This November, let´s make them 0 for 3.” In the speech, the president

Just as the first lady promised, President Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden showed off their “Let’s Move” moves on Friday, hitting the hallways of the White House wearing shirts, ties and dress pants for a quick run. Mrs. Obama said during a recent appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” that if enough Americans showed off their exercise moves on Twitter, then the president and vice president would give them a show of their own exercise routines. That promise was realized via a video of the top two executives jogging about the White House, swilling loads of water, Politico

Tea Party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz is still holding out hope that President Barack Obama’s health care law will be repealed. The Republican senator from Texas and potential 2016 presidential candidate made the comment before the Tea Party Patriots-hosted five-year anniversary event held in Washington, D.C. “I am absolutely convinced we are going to repeal every single word of Obamacare,” Cruz told the Tea Party audience. Cruz stated that “there is no more destructive law” than the Affordable Care Act. “If you listen to the media, if you listen to Democrats — although I repeat myself — they will say the fight to

Michelle Obama is everywhere these days -- and the White House plans to keep her in the spotlight through November´s midterms. The first lady is pushing a ban on junk-food ads and trumpeting new nutrition labels -- in addition to doing comedy skits with Jimmy Fallon and Will Ferrell -- as part of a ramped-up schedule for arguably the most popular Democratic woman in Washington. With President Obama seen as a potential albatross in competitive congressional races, some Democrats are clamoring for the first lady to take a more active role to fend off the GOP effort to take back the

Charles Krauthammer told viewers Friday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" that President Obama´s statement on the latest Ukraine developments showed "weakness," and implied that "we´re not really going to do anything" about the political upheaval in Ukraine. On Friday, armed men, allegedly Russian military forces, entered the Crimea region and took control of two airports. President Obama then delivered a message from the White House briefing room, saying he was "deeply concerned" by the reports and that "there will be costs" for any military intervention in Ukraine, though he declined to specify what those costs might be.

I´ve been lamenting Republicans´ haphazard and sclerotic response to Harry Reid´s Obamacare smears, wondering with frustration why the party hadn´t produced any instant YouTube ads or mobilized to draw attention to the comments. Last night I received word from the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) -- the group devoted to relegating Reid to minority status -- that they were working on it. They´ve since shared their production exclusively with Townhall: If you´re wondering why the ad doesn´t actually feature Reid´s remarks, Senate rules severely restrict campaign committees´ ability to use floor footage in ads.

If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front runner in the next presidential race. But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids. The National Enquirer wrote in 2012 that Clinton had brain cancer, something a spokesman dismissed then as “absolute

The “greatest buried treasure ever unearthed in the United States” is about to be hit by the tax collector. According to Kathleen Pender, a columnist at the San Francisco Chronicle, the couple who found in cans buried on their property more than 1,400 rare gold coins worth more than $10 million will probably owe close to half of that sum in federal and state income tax, whether or not they sell the coins.

The jury handed down the verdict after just 30 minutes of deliberation Friday morning. The six-member panel had deliberated about 45 minutes Thursday night after being handed the case. Kennedy — who had faced up to a year in jail if convicted — hugged both her lawyers as the verdict was read, and then began clapping after the jurors left the courtroom.

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West.

Benghazi: Former CIA acting Director Mike Morell might be recalled for testimony to determine if he misled Congress and doctored the White House response to a terrorist attack to ensure President Obama´s re-election. The administration´s tangled web of Benghazi lies might be unraveling some more. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., has told Fox News that Morell, a former deputy director and twice acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, will likely be recalled to testify. The recall comes after new charges surfaced that Morell misled Congress about what he knew regarding the 2012 Benghazi attack and when he knew it.

President Barack Obama fired a few verbs across the front armor of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s tanks, in a rushed statement just after 5 p.m. on Friday. The statement was made as Russian forces — including attack helicopters — appeared in peripheral parts of the Ukraine that are largely populated by ethnic Russians. There’s no evidence that Obama wants to get involved in what may become a war between the Ukraine and Russia. He did not threaten any significant retaliation if Russian force attack nor did he offer military aid to the Ukraine. He announced that Vice President Joe Biden — but not
