Feinstein Blasts Environmentalists On Drought
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/16/2014 7:46:22 PM

California Sen. Dianne Feinstein blasted environmental groups standing in the way of legislation she wants passed that would help California farms deal with the severe drought in the state. Feinstein said environmentalists "have never been helpful to me in producing good water policy. You can´t have a water infrastructure for 16 million people and say, ´Oh, it´s fine for 38 million people,´ when we´re losing the Sierra Nevada snowpack.´" When she was queried if the environmental groups would resent her proposed legislation, she said, "Well, that´s really too bad, isn´t it? I would be very happy to know what they propose... I

Don´t you love it when they eat their own. What else would she expect? How much money has she gotten from the wacko environmentalists?

I guess one of her many businesses must be losing money over this now. That´s the only reason she´d ever say anything.

Especially when she´s been silent for over a decade.

Someone inform her we live on a water planet and she should be working with industry to construct desalination plants along the West Coast and build the infrastructure needed to transport the water to where it is needed or reservoirs to store the excess. There´s more, but this will get her pointed in the correct direction.....

I´ve done some research on desalination #3. Enviros say the process uses ´´to much´´ energy which contributes to global warming. I think they oppose it because the oceans have a limitless supply of water and the last thing they want is to actually solve any problem (better to keep it as a political weapon).

What is the cost per gallon of desalinized water? Does it make sense for use in agriculture as it is practice in the Central Valley? Because that is essentially where the marginal water will end up (water, like money, is fungible - water produced for the coastal cities frees up mountain water for the growers)

The wackos might like desal if it were powered by wind turbines. One good argument against having wind power in the grid is the source´s gross unreliability. Variability in the powering of desal should be less of an issue for desalination as using this medieval technology 400 years ago to drain swamps and fens in the Netherlands did not require the task to be done steadily. Rather the intermittent pumping was analogous to today´s ability to get by with intermittent desalination.

Thank you, President Juan Orlando Hernandez of Honduras, for reforming our immigration laws all by yourself. But we can take it from here. Hernandez believes that the US should treat the tidal wave of illegal children from his country who are crossing the border into the US “with the utmost care from the humanitarian perspective,” but don’t bother sending them back here because they have a “complete right” to find their illegal alien parents. We’d be happy to treat the children in a sensitive and humane way. How much is Honduras planning to pay for their care and upkeep? Just

It appears President Barack Obama’s daughters, Malia and Sasha, will not be joining he and first lady Michelle Obama on their swing through Southern California this Father’s Day weekend. Only the presidential couple walked off Air Force One at about 6:30 p.m. Friday at Palm Springs International Airport, as temperatures hovered around 100 degrees. The Obamas greeted dignitaries on the tarmac before being whisked away in a black Suburban in a long line of Secret Service vehicles.

Police in Cleveland, Ohio are investigating what they suspect may be a hate crime after a 13 year-old girl attacked a 10 year-old. The teenage attacker is black; the 10 year-old is white. A YouTube video shows the camera was rolling before the attack, suggesting that it might have been planned. The attacker is seen looking back at the camera before springing towards the 10 year-old, who was riding by on a scooter.

Bush´s toxic legacy in Iraq
CNN, by Peter Bergen    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/14/2014 9:17:47 AM     Post Reply
ISIS, the brutal insurgent/terrorist group formerly known as al Qaeda in Iraq, has seized much of western and northern Iraq and even threatens towns not far from Baghdad. From where did ISIS spring? One of George W. Bush´s most toxic legacies is the introduction of al Qaeda into Iraq, which is the ISIS mother ship. If this wasn´t so tragic it would be supremely ironic, because before the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, top Bush officials were insisting that there was an al Qaeda-Iraq axis of evil. Their claims that Saddam Hussein´s men were training members of al Qaeda how to

Will Obama Abandon

Will Commander in Chief Obama decide not to adequately protect and evacuate Americans from Iraq? Will Obama abandon Americans in Baghdad just as he abandoned Americans in Benghazi? There are apparently still thousands of Americans in the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. These Americans are apparently frightened, with many wanting to be evacuated out of Iraq. This is not happening. The Obama Administration fears that evacuating the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad might make Obama appear to be weak. Fox News reported on the dire situation and Obama’s decision to gamble with the lives of Americans for possible political gain, A senior U.S. defense official

FRESNO, Calif. - Veterans are outraged after a KMPH FOX 26 News investigation reveals the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Fresno was caught blocking the "Fox News Channel" from a hospital waiting room.

The Children’s Crusade that has invaded our southern borders has an amazing number of well-fed gangster types, grabbing their crotches and giving the finger to the news cameras. These adult-sized gangsters are not children, and they don’t act like children. They are doing sex, dope, and almost certainly work in criminal collusion with the biggest Mexican drug cartel, Sinaloa. They certainly look more like drug smugglers and mules for the youngsters who have apparently been abandoned by their real parents and by governments south of the border, to go wandering north under conditions that simply invite abuse.

Former Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist:

A former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital has written an explosive editorial at the Wall Street Journal saying, “Policy makers and the media are doing no favors either to the public or the transgendered by treating their confusions as a right in need of defending rather than as a mental disorder that deserves understanding, treatment and prevention.” Dr. Paul McHugh, the former chair of the Department of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins, challenges the notion that sex-reassignment surgery is good for transgendered persons and provides statistics to back up his assertions.

Most Americans do not want President Obama to shut down the United State´s terrorist detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, according to a poll released this afternoon. Americans continue to be wary of releasing prisoners with terrorist ties like the ones swapped last month for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl or moving them to prisons in the U.S. Two in three Americans told Gallup that they want president Obama to keep the 149 suspected terrorists being held at Gitmo under lock and key on foreign soil instead of shutting down the camp. Closing Guantanamo Bay was one of the president´s core campaign promises in

The Obama administration knew about allegations of secret waiting lists at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) as early as 2010, The Daily Caller has learned. The current VA scandal involving secret waiting lists that led to preventable veteran deaths at the Phoenix VA Medical Center claimed the scalp of Obama-appointed former VA Secretary Eric Shinseki, who resigned at the end of last month. Former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said that President Obama only found about the VA wait-list scandal from watching the news. But the Obama administration knew that an internal VA investigation into secret “paper” waiting

The VA Scandal began at the Phoenix VA Health Care System where administrators earned promotions and bonuses by shunting patients who needed treatment into fake waiting lists. As many as 40 veterans had died while waiting for care and 1,715 veterans in the Phoenix VA Health Care System had waited more than 90 days for an appointment. A retired Navy serviceman died of bladder cancer after being put on a 7-month waiting list after blood was found in his urine. He finally received an appointment a week after his death.

BOSTON — Once fearing he would be viewed as "a loser for life" if he failed to win the presidency, Mitt Romney is trying to re-emerge as a force in Republican politics. Romney has quietly sought kingmaker status in the GOP´s fight for the Senate majority this fall and its quest to retake the White House in 2016. The effort at revival is fueling whispers about a third presidential run. But those closest to Romney suggest he´s more interested in shaping party politics by lending his name and record-breaking fundraising machine to what he considers the next generation of electable conservatives.

"Today, courageous lesbian, gay, and bisexual individuals routinely put their lives on the line as members of America´s armed services," Holder told Lambda Legal Tuesday night.

Chelsea Clinton earned an annual salary of $600,000 at NBC News before switching to a month-to-month contract earlier this year, sources with knowledge of the agreement told POLITICO. Clinton, who joined NBC News as a “special correspondent” in November 2011, was up for renewal or non-renewal this year. Instead, the sources said, the network decided to keep her on the payroll on a month-to-month basis so that the two parties could sever ties if Clinton’s mother, Hillary, runs for president. Kamyl Bazbaz, a spokesperson for the 34-year-old Clinton, referred POLITICO to NBC News, which declined to discuss Clinton’s contract. “We don’t comment
