Administration Will Govern

The Supreme Court this week admonished the Environmental Protection Agency for overreaching in regulating greenhouse gases. The Clean Air Act covers polluters that emit 250 tons per year (or in some cases, 100 tons). This standard makes no sense if applied to greenhouse gases. Thousands of establishments from elementary schools to grocery stores would be, absurdly, covered. So the EPA arbitrarily chose 100,000 tons as the carbon dioxide threshold. That´s not "tailoring," ruled the Supreme Court. That´s rewriting. Under our Constitution, "an agency has no power to ´tailor´ legislation to bureaucratic policy goals by

Comments:
Of course he offers no specifics how to stop Obama. The "congress is stirring." Really? Until they start cutting funding for all the Marxist agencies that are completely out of control, will I believe the congress is "stirring."

After days of getting hammered by Republican members of Congress on Capitol Hill over the last few days, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen sat down with Wolf Blitzer on The Situation Room Thursday afternoon and attempted to defend his agency’s reaction to the scandal involving Lois Lerner’s missing emails. “I apologize to anybody who had their applications held up needlessly,” Koskinen said. everybody needs to be confident that the IRS is going to treat them fairly, Republicans, Democrats, whatever organization they belong to. It’s a serious matter.” Blitzer honed in on the question of the missing emails, getting Koskinen to agree that it

Chuck Todd´s Nixonian
Defense Of The IRS

NBC Senior White House Correspondent Chuck Todd´s Nixonian defense of the IRS earlier this week was so intellectually dishonest and filled with lies of omission, regardless of your political beliefs, no intellectually honest person can watch without marveling at the mendacity. In a mere 90 seconds during a segment called "My Take" on his MSNBC show "The Daily Rundown," Todd used his admittedly impressive political and analytical skills to mislead his audience into believing the IRS scandal is something it´s not. Let´s start at the beginning, with Todd´s statement that "the question [of the IRS scandal] at hand is whether

After the skin-crawling exploitation of black voters in Mississippi, the GOP’s current leadership wing gives a second demonstration, this time in Virginia, of just how committed they are to “a big tent,” or to the GOP’s vitality in general. The Senate majority matters, the House majority matters. But this party’s leadership is infested with the same disregard for Washington’s intended purpose as any Clintonian. Third parties fail. But what cost does remaining aligned with this generation of GOP leadership take from the cause of liberty and transparency? (Snip) This week? He sends Ray Allen — read anything I’ve published at

After a week of complete media malpractice, in which scurrilous accusations that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker participated in a “criminal scheme” were plastered all over the headlines, a lead prosecutor has completely backed off. The Wisconsin State Journal reports, Scott Walker not a target, John Doe special prosecutor says: Randall Crocker, the lawyer for special prosecutor Francis Schmitz, noted the investigation has been halted, saying, “At the time the investigation was halted, Governor Walker was not a target of the investigation. At no time has he been served with a subpoena.” Crocker issued the statement a week after a court

Henry M. Paulson, Jr. should be remembered as U.S. Secretary of the Treasury during the 2008 economic crisis. He saw to it that favored banks received government bailouts costing the American people plenty. Along with a group of economic experts, he insisted that some financial institutions were “too big to fail.” According to his style of thinking, there aren’t any economic laws; there are only opportunities to increase government domination of the nation’s economic life. In the June 22nd New York Times, Paulson transformed himself from economic wizard to climate expert. Because he has experience poorly combating an economic crisis, he

Sheriff Arpaio: “Close” to Finding

It was the elephant on the back of the elephant in the middle of the room. In a recent interview with Rusty Humphries, Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio made news by saying that the Obama administration was “incompetent” and that its current dumping of illegals in Arizona is intentional. Yet perhaps even more shocking was a 45-second segment of the interview that has received scant attention: A claim by Arpaio that he’s close to discovering who forged Barack Obama’s birth certificate. His comments were made between 9:59 and 10:44 in the interview and began as an explanation of why he

Congressional investigators say they uncovered emails Wednesday showing that a former Internal Revenue Service official at the heart of the Tea Party targeting scandal also sought to audit Republican Senator Chuck Grassley in 2012. According to the emails, former IRS official Lois Lerner mistakenly received an invitation to an event that was meant for the Iowa Senator. An event organizer had offered to pay for Grassley´s wife, Barbara Ann, to attend the event. In an email to other IRS officials, Lerner suggests referring the matter for an audit. ´Perhaps we should refer to exam?´ Lerner wrote in a December 4,

The father of ´virgin killer´ Elliot Rodger has called his life ´a living nightmare´ as he tries to come to terms with the fact that his son was a mass murderer. Peter Rodgers spoke about his 22-year-old son for the first time in an interview with Barbara Walters set to be aired on Friday. In a clip released today, an emotional Mr Rodgers said: ´Every night I go to sleep, I wake up and think of those young men and women who died, who were injured and terrorized.

From a disappointing launch to tumbling book sales, it doesn´t look like anyone is interested in reading former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s new book, Hard Choices. Sales of the much-published memoir fell by approximately 43 percent in the second week of the book´s launch, CNN reported, citing data from Nielsen BookScan. Excluding digital purchases, only 85,721 copies of Hard Choices sold in the book’s first week, and only 48,227 copies sold in its second week, according to Nielsen numbers.

Following House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) announcement yesterday that he was considering suing the Obama administration over its use of executive orders, Daily Rundown host Chuck Todd asked brand-new White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest Thursday morning if the White House had given up on finding legislation it could work with Congress on, something Earnest denied. “Does the White House believe this is it, now, there really is no major legislation that the two sides can work on together?” Todd asked. “The president is certainly not closing that door,” earnest said. “I think the question all along has been do

Ninety percent of the mostly teen illegal immigrants flooding over the Mexico-U.S. border won’t show up for their immigration court hearing, meaning at least 135,000 of the youths will simply vanish into the country this year alone, according to a key House committee chairman. House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, who on Wednesday held a hearing to raise national security concerns about the new wave of illegals, revealed Thursday that many of the teens are placed with relatives, including parents who are in the U.S. illegally, and then ignore court orders to appear for immigration hearings.

Senior Obama administration officials’ closed-door briefing to senators Tuesday night revealed that the White House did not anticipate and was not prepared for the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), which has wreaked havoc in Iraq and seized many key cities in recent weeks. Top State Department and Defense Department officials joined senators Tuesday evening for a briefing on the quickly developing chaos in Iraq and future U.S. plans for a response. Sources familiar with the brief said that the administration officials repeated talking points issued over the past several days in both open and

With a surprisingly wide margin of victory, Congressman James Lankford won the Oklahoma Republican U.S. Senate primary, defeating former Speaker of the State House of Representatives T.W. Shannon by 23 points and avoiding a runoff election. Lankford now becomes the prohibitive favorite to replace outgoing Senator Tom Coburn, who is retiring with two years remaining in his current term. This was a very different race from the one taking place in Mississippi. Despite negative ads run against Lankford by conservative groups, the Oklahoma contest was not an example of an “establishment” Republican or RINO versus a Tea Party candidate. In

With Iraq in danger of falling apart, new troubles on the Mexican border and other problems mounting up in Washington, President Obama on Thursday will try to the shift the narrative by reconnecting with average Americans. The president will travel to Minneapolis on Thursday and spend a day “in the shoes” of a mystery woman identified only as Rebekah. The woman, whose last name has yet to be revealed, recently wrote a letter to Mr. Obama, inspiring the president to visit her and learn more about her daily struggles. The White House is painting Thursday’s event as the first in

Thad Cochran’s political resurrection began with a campaign shakeup and ended with a Hail Mary television ad. Just three weeks ago, in the dead of night on June 3, the Mississippi senator’s staff sat shaken and dejected, crestfallen at the results of a primary that deprived the six-term incumbent of an electoral majority. With Cochran forced into a runoff fight against an aggressive and energetic challenger, a dark mood shadowed his backers in Washington and Mississippi.Yet almost immediately, the Cochran coalition began bouncing back. Even on that gloomy night of June 3, Cochran adviser Stuart Stevens was insisting to staffers: “We’re

Hillary Clinton has a “secret deal” with her top aide Huma Abedin to keep her troublesome husband Anthony Weiner out of the spotlight, sources tell Page Six, as the former secretary of state mulls a run for president. Clinton aides have insisted Weiner “stay out of public life for two years,” and that he “avoid causing any further embarrassment to Huma or Clinton,” according to our sources. The former sexting pol has been noticeably absent at recent public events attended by Abedin, including the Gordon Parks Foundation Awards Dinner in Manhattan earlier this month.

President Obama is now reaching terminal velocity, like a skydiver plunging toward earth. Except he doesn’t have a parachute. There’s a mighty splat coming soon. With his approval rating at 40 percent, down 6 points from early June, and just 29 percent of Americans convinced the country is on the “right track,” the president is doubling down on his strategy of blaming Republicans for his failures. And he’s shifting into hyperpartisan drive, traveling the country to campaign for Democrats, many of whom wish he’d just stay away. Worse, the news just keeps getting well, worse: The Veterans Affairs scandal is blazing, with

Lois Lerner, the controversial director of the tax-exempt organizations division at the Internal Revenue Service, has a long sordid history of targeting conservatives. Under the direction of Lois Lerner, the Federal Election Commission sued the Christian Coalition in the 1990s. She harassed the Christian Coalition for three election cycles. Eventually, she lost her case. At one point Lerner even asked a targeted conservative if Pat Robertson prayed over him. (Sound familiar?) In 1996, while at the FEC, Lois Lerner harassed Republican Senate candidate Al Salvi and made him this outrageous offer, “Promise me you will never run for office again, and

National conservative groups are angry after incumbent Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran pulled off a victory in the state’s GOP run-off — likely because of his campaign’s outreach to Democratic voters. “It’s disgraceful that self-described GOP leaders like Mitch McConnell, John McCain, the Chamber of Commerce and the NRSC would champion a campaign platform of pork barrel spending and insider deal-making, while recruiting Democrats to show up at the polls,” Matt Kibbe of FreedomWorks said after the results came in. Tuesday’s closely-watched run-off came after conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel edged Cochran in votes in the initial election earlier this month.

Republicans are in the strongest position to win back the Senate since losing it eight years ago. Over several months, the party has expanded its range of targeted seats, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has helped defeat insurgents it didn’t want representing the GOP in the midterm elections. This sober realization came to Democrats on Wednesday, as Tuesday night’s primary results showed they cannot count on Tea Party candidates upsetting more-electable incumbents. And Democrats are increasingly realizing that President Obama’s approval rating will probably remain mired at 45 percent or lower until

Ordinarily, President Obama’s days are planned out to the smallest detail. But for his two-day excursion to Minnesota this week, the president boasted that he’s got little in the way of a formal agenda, has few firm plans, and warned Secret Service that he’s feeling “super loose” and could end up doing any number of things. “I don’t know. I’m just going to make it up as I go along,” Mr. Obama said during a town-hall meeting at Minneapolis’ Minnehaha Park, one of the few planned activities during his two-day stay in the Twin Cities. “I’m like a caged bear,
