Obama announces funds to prepare
country for climate change

MSNBC, by Jane C. Timm

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 7/16/2014 9:38:30 AM

In his ongoing effort to combat climate change through executive authority, President Obama announced Wednesday a series of investments to support communities across the country as they prepare for the worst effects yet to come. The millions provided will give communities and states the funds to shore up their vulnerabilities, as well as “create jobs, provide certainty to states and communities, support American businesses, and grow our economy,” a statement from the White House said. The president has made it a second-term priority to tackle climate change, as Republicans routinely deny that the Earth’s temperature is warming and dramatically altering weather patterns.

Comments:
Yet another monumental waste of our tax dollars. These funds are nothing more than "street money" that will end up being misspent on the local level dressed up as a solution for a non-existent problem.
The only thing 0bama is preparing us for is financial insolvency.

This is retaliation for Congress having the temerity to slash the IRS budget yesterday do doubt. Make no mistake. The American government is split along ideological lines and are at war. 0bama is incapable of admitting his mistakes and will be on a scorched earth strategy until he´s gone. Expect it to get even uglier if his party loses the Senate.

Dear Reader wants wampum to prepare Injuns to deal with Climate Change? If you take the money and burn it the clouds of smoke might lower the global temperature. But I´d rather burn ØDumbø and The Beast books. What is it today? Global Luke Warming? Nuclear Winter? The Population Bomb? The Silent Spring? Island Tipping? The greatest danger facing the human race and the thing I want to be protected from is demoncraps.

Congress, WTP hereby instruct you to take away his prestigious BLACK credit card and cut it, flushing the pieces down the toilet. This is not for the fictitious GW (fraud) It is nothing more than more stolen OPM that he plans on giving to cronies, sneaks and thieves. In the future, for every dollar you give this creature, you either take it from your deep pocket, personally, or you tell the creature to pound sand. ENOUGH!!!

In related news, the Obama administration announced billions in grants to:

1) Protect the habitat of the endangered unicorn;
2) Buy GPS units for leprechauns who can´t find the ends of their rainbows with both hands;
3) Build landing pads for UFOs in major Democratic voting districts;
4) Cut off water supplies to thousands of California farmers so that Sasquaches can be sure mountain streams will have enough water to quench their thirst;
5) Let mermen and mermaids intermarry legally with humans -- or each other, regardless of gender;
6) Keep existing bonus programs for the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and honest bureaucrats;
7) And exempt Muslims from being asked any embarrassing questions by members of the TSA. (Oh, wait -- this program is already fully funded.)

Holder expects criminal charges

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department expects to bring criminal charges in the coming months in investigations involving financial institutions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday as he called for better incentives for Wall Street whistleblowers who report crime. Holder did not describe the investigations in a speech at New York University’s law school except to say that they’re “focused on the conduct of individuals” and involve wrongdoing that has undermined the financial markets. He used the address to urge Congress to raise a cap on the amount of money that a whistleblower can receive for reporting misconduct. Such cooperation is essential since

The Australian Federal Police and Australian Security and Intelligence Office conducted several anti-terrorism raids in Sydney and Brisbane. According to reports, about 600 officers with armoured vehicles arrested several people in separate pre-dawn raids in NSW and Brisbane. The recent raids are said to be the largest in Australian history following the report of senior officers who revealed a planned terrorist attack was imminent. Intelligence reports said a suspected terrorist cell is planning a kidnapping and beheading. The act of murder will be recorded and posted on social media for the public to see. Reports also suggested that the terrorist group

A Milwaukee teen charged in a string of armed robberies last week told police he was trying to do as many crimes as he could before he turned 18 on Sept. 11. Rocarldo Chalmers is one of five suspects charged Wednesday in a dizzying spree of armed stick-ups and car jackings that only ended after a high speed chase. Chalmers faces 10 felonies, including armed robbery, car theft and fleeing. Isiah Deshawn Thomas, 18, is charged with five counts, Anthony Griffis, 17, with two. Two juveniles were also arrested and as many as three other suspects remain at large. According to the complaint: Things

Ready for Hillary? Not so fast. Zephyr Teachout, fresh off her strong second-place showing in the Democratic primary against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, pleaded for more Democratic candidates to challenge the presumed 2016 frontrunner. “Please, we need people to run against Hillary Clinton because if she’s not debating anyone on education policy or on tax policy then we all lose,” she told MSNBC’s Krystal Ball on Wednesday. “Not only does she need a challenger from the left, we should have 5 people—10 people—running for president,” she argued. “If we don’t have a Democratic Party challenger, that is a democratic tragedy.”

Obama, a master of both high and low sartorial styles, will be hosting a Fashion Education Workshop at the White House next month. According to an email obtained by Women´s Wear Daily, celebrated designers like Prabal Gurung, Reed Krakoff, Maria Cornejo, and Bibhu Mohapatra have been invited to attend "to bring members of the fashion industry to the White House and enlighten, educate and mentor the next generation of fashion leaders."

Given the massive effort behind convincing us that Obamacare is a resounding success, it’s almost surprising that a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll found support languishing at 34%. Part of the problem is the credibility Obamacare supporters lose by attempting to prove two questionable propositions. First, that Obamacare is having a positive impact on our health care system and, second, that it’s doing so without any negative impact on our economy. For example, a recent report by the Urban Institute and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, both Obamacare supporters, found “little evidence” that Obamacare’s employer mandate is affecting part time employment.

Yesterday, former Vice President Al Gore presented his fourth annual ‘24 Hours of Reality.’ Broadcast to millions of people, the event is “dedicated to sparking action on climate change.” As with most Gore productions, only carefully pre-screened questions are allowed from journalists. Considering what’s at stake—billions of dollars, millions of jobs, and, if Gore is right, the fate of the global environment—that is not good enough. Reporters must be encouraged to ask any questions they like. Several leading climate experts were asked what question they would most like media to ask Gore in a public forum. Here are 10 of their responses: William

Even we were shocked when we researched our new book, “Obama’s Enforcer: Eric Holder’s Justice Department,” at the extent to which Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. has politicized the Justice Department and put the interests of left-wing ideology and his political party ahead of the fair and impartial administration of justice. However, there is no doubt that the American public has also recognized just how politically corrupt Mr. Holder is, given this month’s very embarrassing poll conducted by Hart Research for NBC News and The Wall Street Journal. The poll asked respondents their opinions about 10 different national political officials, ranging

Minnesota´s ObamaCare exchange stands apart from every other state — and not only because its No. 1 insurer just threw in the towel. Tuesday´s stunning news that PreferredOne, which enrolled 59% of the state´s exchange members, won´t offer subsidized ObamaCare policies in 2015 is likely related to another unique feature of the exchange that has stunted its growth potential. In 2015, well more than half of MNsure exchange subsidies won´t go to insurers on the exchange, but to a public program serving households that fall between the cut-off for Medicaid and 200% of the poverty level. To date, this MinnesotaCare program for households

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House.

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting
