N.J Gov. Chris Christie´s EPA praises
Obama´s coal emission crackdown

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/2/2014 7:43:41 PM

Washington Republicans are decrying President Obama´s plan to cut carbon emissions from energy plants 30 percent as a job and economy killer, but New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie´s EPA welcomed the move as the right thing to do--setting up a potential 2016 GOP presidential fight over green energy initatives. New Jersey is among the hardest hit states in the Obama plan, with a demand for 43 percent reduction in emissions from fossil-fueled power plants by 2030. But state officials said less than 3 percent of the state’s electricity comes from coal plants. According to an Associated Press report,

Amazing! He doesn´t seem to be on the same page with the rest of the RINOs. Even McConnell spoke out against this, for now anyway. That sure won´t help in any presidential run. Nothing like siding with Obama. That´s just what we want in a Republican president. s/o

According to the article only 3% of New Jersey´s energy comes from coal so the impact will not be as great on his constituents.

The U.S. is a lot bigger than New Jersey...Christie will have a lot of ´splaining to do to win over the rest of the country.

I had to check. NJ has a large nuclear plant and the second largest source of power is natural gas. I don´t understand why their reduction target is greater than 40%. How are they going to reduce the carbon emissions by 40%? I figured out that the high target in TX is because they built coal plants after 2005 which is the reference point for the regulation. One of the fallacies of doing this with the Clean Air Act is that a 8 year old plant shouldn´t be hit with a new regulation.

The mother of an off-duty police officer who was killed by a wrong-way illegal immigrant driver has written a furious letter to President Obama demanding to know why the man was not deported after being convicted of a crime. Mary Ann Mendoza, who lost her son Sgt. Brandon Mendoza in the horror crash in Mesa, Arizona in May, expressed her anger that the driver, Raul Silva-Corona, was not sent back to Mexico two decades ago after he carried out crimes in Colorado. ´The prosecutors were "lenient" on him and several charges were dismissed,´ she wrote in the letter. ´When he was convicted of

WASHINGTON – Top Republican Rep. Darrell Issa Friday accused the State Department of trying to repeatedly dodge congressional efforts to look into the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman sent a 37-page letter to the newly-created House Select Committee on Benghazi detailing attempts he claimed were made to sidestep providing documents and answering questions about the attack from September 2012 until May 2014. Issa said the State Department promised to cooperate with Congress but failed to actually provide information requested and missed many

Thursday night on The Kelly File, Megyn took on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s comments that the Supreme Court’s ruling on Hobby Lobby is “frightening” because it was decided by five men. Megyn said in reaction, “If Speaker John Boehner made a similar comment about the female Supreme Court justices, Nancy Pelosi would be crying sexism – and that’s what she is guilty of here.” Today, PolitiFact looked into Pelosi’s comments and rated it false.

Chris Christie narrowly leads the pack of potential Republican presidential candidates in a poll of New Hampshire residents released Friday, but Mitt Romney crushes the competition when his name is added to the field. Christie, the cantankerous and controversial New Jersey governor, emerged as the most polarizing name on a list of 13 politicians presented during a phone poll between June 19 and July 1. While 46 per cent of New Hampshire Republicans like him, another 36 per cent don´t. And he topped the list when GOP respondents were asked who they definitely would not vote for. But with 19 per cent support

While the House and the Senate this week issued measures intended to temporarily replenish the Highway Trust Fund before it runs out of money next month, Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) ended the week by proposing to hike - then abolish - the federal fuel tax and replace it with a per-mile “fee.” “The policy development that I’m most excited about and that will reinforce the right practices for the future: After we raise the gas tax, we should abolish it,” Blumenauer said on Friday at the liberal Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. “The time is right to replace the gas tax, because it’s no longer an accurate reflection of road

Who even knows what’s true anymore? The same administration that is watching 57,000 kids just stroll across the border, while claiming that the same border is more secure than ever before, now says that funds to deport are getting low. Even though actual deportations — not the phony ones that the administration claimed for years — are down overall. The Homeland Security agency responsible for removing immigrants who are in the country illegally will run out of money by mid-August unless Congress approves President Barack Obama’s emergency request for $3.7 billion to help deal with a flood of child immigrants crossing the

Reverend Jesse Jackson sat down with Greta Van Susteren on Fox tonight and basically took on President Obama for pushing for billions of dollars to help young illegal immigrants at the border, but not making that kind of commitment to places like Chicago. Jackson said helping these poor children is obviously a good, moral thing to do, but Obama can’t just “abandon urban America” in the process. Jackson said that there is a crisis going on in Chicago right now, with guns and drugs coming into the city while more jobs are heading out. He said things have gotten so bloody and tragic, it’s time for federal intervention.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) believes he can beat Hillary Clinton in the race for the 2016 presidency. "Multiple people can beat her. Hillary Clinton is not unbeatable," the GOP presidential hopeful told radio host Hugh Hewitt in an interview Friday. When asked whether he´s concerned about Clinton´s extensive foreign policy background if he or another Republican candidate ran against her, Rubio quickly slammed the potential Democratic frontrunner.

The crisis at our southern border, coupled with President Obama’s visit to Texas, has propelled Rick Perry back into the limelight. And Perry has made the most of this unexpected opportunity. Perry would like to be known nationally for more than his embarrassing run for president during the last cycle. In the words of this article from Buzz Feed, the border crisis has enabled him “to be out in front on an issue he knows well: the border.” According to the same article, Perry’s expertise “was on display when [he] took his spot in front of the dais” at a Homeland Security field hearing on border crisis last week.

Juliet Eilperin at the Washington Post gained some amount of notoriety earlier this year after she penned an embarrassing and now-debunked attack on Charles and David Koch, the libertarian-leaning bogeymen of the left. And now she has authored what may be this year´s silliest puff piece for the Obama administration. His second term halfway over, President Obama is “trying to free himself from the constraints of office,” Eilperin wrote in an article on the front page of Friday´s paper.

A prominent Democrat on the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security seems to have two different interpretations of the situation at the southern U.S. border where tens of thousands of illegal immigrants from Central America have been apprehended. “I disagree it is in devastating condition,” Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee said of what some are calling a “border crisis” in an interview Thursday with MSNBC. “I think with now 21,000 border patrol agents is under control.” But her statement seems to contradict the one currently on Jackson Lee’s congressional website. “She believes that our country currently has deficient border

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

President Obama on Thursday claimed he is “not that partisan of a guy” as he mocked calls in the Republican Party for his impeachment. The president spent much of his address in Austin, Texas, hammering congressional Republicans, saying they have "blocked or voted down every serious idea to strengthen the middle class." “I’m just telling the truth now," Obama said. "I don´t have to run for office again so I can just let her rip.” He teed off on Republicans such as Sarah Palin who have suggested in recent days that he be impeached, and dismissed Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) proposed lawsuit

On a single day this week in Denver, President Obama scarfed down pizza and drinks with strangers, shot pool with Colorado’s governor and shook hands with a guy on the street wearing a horse mask. His top staffers are promoting these stops on Twitter with the hashtag #TheBearIsLoose — a term one of Obama’s aides coined in 2008 when the candidate would defy his schedule.

In an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) discussed the current state of affairs surrounding the issue of immigration. Flake, the guest of the show’s occasionally occurring “Center Seat” segment, admitted the rise of a populist movement opposing any immigration reform movement that included a version of amnesty. However, he admitted to being perplexed as to why there’s such an opposition stating there’s a need for not only low-skill labor “particularly in the agricultural areas and hospitality areas,” but high-skill labor of “those in the STEM fields.” Partial transcript as follows: STEPHEN HAYES, Weekly Standard: You

A cargo train used by Mexicans and Central Americans to travel toward the U.S. border derailed in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca on Wednesday, stranding about 1,300 migrants, emergency services said. Many of the migrants aboard were young people and nobody was injured when the train nicknamed "the Beast" came off the tracks, a spokesman for local emergency services said. Since last October, more than 50,000 unaccompanied minors, most from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, have been caught illegally crossing the southwest border of the United States.

The facts are simple. The IRS systematically targeted conservative and Tea Party groups after their activism proved decisive in the 2010 midterm elections—Obama’s famous “shellacking.” The effects of this targeting were widespread. Some Tea Party groups were neutered in the months before the 2012 presidential election. Few of the explanations or justifications of this targeting provided by IRS leaders and Obama administration officials have held up. IRS officials at first denied that any targeting had taken place. That was false. They later claimed that the targeting had involved only low-level employees in the Cincinnati office. That was false. They argued
