Wasserman Schultz: ´The President Is Going
to Have to Use His Executive Authority´

Cybercast News Service, by Penny Starr

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/29/2014 7:41:34 PM

Despite criticism of President Barack Obama’s pledge that he will use his executive authority and executive orders to advance his agenda regardless of Congress, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said the president “should use his executive authority.” At the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday following the president’s State of the Union speech, CNSNews.com asked Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz, “What do you think of the criticism about using executive order(s) to get things done on climate change or [the] minimum wage?” “Well, the ball’s in their court,” she said, in reference to Republicans in the House of Representatives. “I mean, they have an opportunity

Comments:
Me thinks the moron Schultz would have a different opinion had this been a George Bush SOTU and he behaved in this manner.

Schultz, you haven´t a full deck, but for you, the president has executive authority, not unilateral authority.

Congress has been reduced to a peanut gallery. Zippy will rewrite the Constitution and add amendments by Executive Order and no one will stop him. If there is opposition they will be portrayed as racist haters.

Sen. Joe Manchin on Thursday strongly defended the Koch brothers from attacks by fellow Democrats, saying the wealthy and politically active businessmen are taxpaying Americans who are creating jobs. “People want jobs. You don’t beat up people. I mean, I don’t agree with their politics or philosophically, but, you know, they’re Americans, they’re doing— paying their taxes,” Manchin said on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.” “They’re not breaking the law. They’re providing jobs,” he added. When asked whether Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s attacks on the Koch brothers “helps or hurts the cause for the country and the Congress,” the West Virginia

Boehner: Race ´no issue´ with Holder
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Russell Berman    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/10/2014 1:19:11 PM     Post Reply
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Thursday said there was “no issue of race” in the way House Republicans have treated President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder. A day after Holder said the two leaders had faced “ugly and divisive adversity” from Congress, Boehner said, "There is no issue of race here" at a Capitol press conference. The attorney general had departed from his prepared remarks before the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network on Wednesday to accuse the House GOP of treating him and Obama differently during the last five years. The House in 2012 voted to find Holder in contempt

Former President Carter says Hillary Clinton “took very little action” as secretary of State to bring about peace. Carter, 89, made the remark about the former secretary of State and 2016 Democratic front-runner in a phone interview with Time magazine Wednesday night after he spoke at the Civil Rights Summit in Austin, Texas. John Kerry has been successful as secretary of State, Carter said, because President Obama has been deeply involved in the foreign policy issues of his second term. “In this occasion, when Secretary Clinton was Secretary of State, she took very little action to bring about peace.

Attorney General Eric Holder appeared to suggest Wednesday that harsh criticism from GOP lawmakers´ is racially motivated. The remarks came during an event held by Al Sharpton´s National Action Network. “Forget about me. You look at the way the Attorney General of the United States was treated yesterday by a House committee. Had nothing to do with me. Forget that. What attorney general has ever had that kind of treatment? ... What president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?" Holder asked. Holder was referring to tough questions from members of the House Judiciary Committee the day before, including

House panel votes to hold ex-IRS

A House committee voted Thursday to hold Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, as Republicans escalated their bid to "get to the bottom" of the former IRS official´s role in the political targeting scandal. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted 21-12 to hold Lerner in contempt. The vote followed hours of heated debate on the committee. The contempt measure would next head to the House floor. House Speaker John Boehner predicted earlier this week that unless Lerner agrees to cooperate, the full House will support contempt -- from there, the case would likely head to the courts.

Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer told Special Report with Bret Baier Wednesday night that the window had passed on prosecuting the Obama administration Benghazi, and that the GOP’s disorganzed approach to congressional hearings had let Benghazi as an issue “slip away.” “Politically speaking the administration has won,” Krauthammer said. “They ran out the clock. If we had had a select committee from the beginning, really had coherent hearings — unlike what we’ve had, which were disjointed hearings, that let all things sort of slip away —we really would have been somewhere. We would have gotten to the bottom of this. But as

It appears that the “red line” for LGBT and progressive activists’ outrage is being a successful businessman versus a Democrat politician. After a $1,000 donation in 2008 to support Prop 8 in California, Mozilla’s CEO Brendan Eich was railroaded out of the company at the speed of an Apple Mac Pro on steroids. The New York Times is still criminalizing Eich’s personal political views. Mozilla is not a normal company. It is an activist organization.

The House Ways and Means Committee released a letter Wednesday detailing what it believes to be criminal misconduct by Lois Lerner, the former IRS official at the center of the ongoing IRS Tea Party targeting scandal. For those who want to understand how partisan bureaucrats can manipulate a powerful federal agency, the letter is a must-read. The list of newly-disclosed acts of political bias and manipulation are astounding: - After meeting with an outside group (Democracy 21) that claimed both conservative and liberal groups were violating IRS rules, Lerner chose to focus like a laser only on the conservative groups,

35 ‘Acts of Love’

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush insisted that many of the instances of illegal immigrants coming into the U.S. were "acts of love." Though many of the human beings who enter the U.S. illegally or overstay their legally permitted time in the U.S. are doing so to earn more resources and provide for families, many of the illegal immigrants who come into the U.S. are doing so for highly criminal reasons--a fact often left out of the discussion or otherwise barely mentioned. Breitbart Texas has provided 35 of these other "acts of love" for our readers. 1. Mexican Cartel Assassin Confirmed 11 Kills

The U.S. House Oversight Committee today released emails between the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Democrat Minority Leader Elijah Cummings of the same committee detailing joint attempts to collect non-public information from True the Vote. According to the release obtained by Breitbart Texas, House Oversight offered glimpses into coordinated fishing attempts for information: Five days after Cummings contacted True the Vote seeking “copies of all training materials used for volunteers, affiliates, or other entities,” the IRS sent True the Vote a letter requesting True the Vote provide “a copy of [True the Vote’s] volunteer registration form,” “…the process you use

Top hiring officials at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency broke federal civil service laws when they tried to hire three politically connected but unqualified candidates who were favored by the agency’s then-commissioner, a government watchdog charged Tuesday. The human resources office was warned that choosing the candidates, political appointees who worked on President Obama’s 2008 campaign and were then hired at the Department of Homeland Security, CBP’s parent agency, would circumvent laws designed to create a fair competition for federal jobs. But the staff pressed ahead anyway to please their boss, Alan Bersin, the incoming head of CBP in 2010,

Three leading Senate Republicans say the recent testimony of former CIA acting and deputy director Michael Morell before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on the Benghazi talking points was not only inaccurate, it was misleading. "Michael Morell´s testimony last week to me was not remotely credible," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told reporters. Along with then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, Morell met with the Sens. Graham, Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., and John McCain,R-Ariz., in November 2012. They say Morell blamed the FBI for key changes to the flawed explanation that blamed a protest for the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
