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.

The so-far-unindicted President 43.1 strikes again. Time for the House to cut his allowance.

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.)

Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer said Obama’s comment that “We live in a complex world” “may the understatement of the year”, and claimed the world may be more dangerous now than at the height of the Cold War. Schieffer listed off crises around the world, quoting Sen.

Amid a flurry of Republican calls for a special prosecutor to investigate the Internal Revenue Service’s alleged targeting of conservative groups, the Justice Department is set to defend its own probe of the matter as exhaustive and sufficient during a House hearing Thursday on the department’s response to the scandal. A top Justice Department official will tell the hearing that the department is now looking at how some of former senior IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails disappeared -- a new area of inquiry, Attorney General Eric Holder told ABC News in an exclusive interview Friday.

No one’s heard anything yet from Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the former prisoner-of-war freed in a May 31 swap for five Taliban leaders after nearly five years as a Taliban prisoner. He hasn’t spoken to the press—by all accounts, he hasn’t even spoken to his parents. But, in typical American fashion, he has retained—and spoken to—an attorney. “Sergeant Bergdahl is deeply grateful to President Obama for having saved his life,” Eugene Fidell, retained a week ago by the soldier, told TIME on Wednesday. Fidell has traveled to Texas—where Bergdahl has returned to active duty at a desk job in San

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday repeated his position that "Israel will continue to do what it needs to do to defend itself until peace and quiet are restored." The premier spoke at a joint news conference with Italian Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini at the Knesset on Wednesday. Netanyahu called on the international community to condemn Hamas for committing the "double war crime" of firing on Israeli civilians and using Palestinian noncombatants as human shields. He also said that the "most important step for the international community to insist on" is "the demilitarization of Gaza."

Each day, they live in fear. Sometimes it´s the fear of rockets dropping from the sky. Sometimes it´s violent fundamentalists taking over their cities. Sometimes it´s the barrel bombs stuffed with TNT and nails. Exactly what horror they face depends on which border they live within. Syria, Iraq, Gaza, Israel and Libya. Each with its unique crisis, but all now unified in a heightened sense of anxiety as years of conflict come to a head. "I would argue," U.S. Sen.

NEW YORK Hillary Rodham Clinton didn´t give Jon Stewart any hints about whether she will run for president, but acknowledged during Tuesday´s taping of "The Daily Show" that the speculation surrounding her possible candidacy has become "a cottage industry." Stewart introduced Clinton by saying, "She´s here solely for one reason: to publicly and definitively declare her candidacy for president of the United States." That proved not to be true.

BATON ROUGE, LA - Hundreds of people gathered in Baton Rouge on Tuesday afternoon to protest Israeli war crimes in Gaza. This is just one group of protesters who gathered worldwide for the cause. The protest comes on a day when tensions and violence are high in the Israeli-Gaza conflict.

Those that gathered in Baton Rouge are from Louisiana, and organizers say they just want to be heard. Groups sounded off nationally and worldwide on Tuesday. "It´s a human cause," said one protester

The pablum from the White House is beginning to sour stomachs If anyone needs further evidence the White House is out touch with reality, it came in an official statement this week that President Obama has made the world a more tranquil place. This was the White House’s exaggerated response to a well-documented, front-page Wall Street Journal story that concluded, “the breadth of global instability now unfolding hasn’t been seen since the late 1970s.” The article also charged that under this administration, “U.S. global power seems increasingly tenuous.” This should be obvious to anyone who’s been following foreign events — make that crises —

"We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said. Obama touched on the laundry list of global flashpoints situations during a statement from the White House on Wednesday — the disputed elections in Afghanistan, the negotiations on Iran´s nuclear program, the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, and, finally, the conflict in Ukraine. The most significant recent development in these situations was the announcement of new sanctions on Russia shortly before the president spoke. Obama described those

A number of other celebs have given money to the Texas Victory Committee, a joint effort of the Davis campaign and the group Battleground Texas.

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on
