IRS abuse of power and the re-election of the president
Should anyone doubt the purpose of these recent revelations that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) targeted conservative Tea Party and patriotic grassroots groups such as the Glenn Beck inspired 9/12 groups seeking tax-exempt status from the government? Cast all skepticism aside. Be advised there was a single purpose to this act of unmitigated government tyranny…
Congress Must Act to Defund UN Bodies Like UNRWA
The U.S. provided $130 million to UNRWA in 2013. UNRWA’s continued operations in Gaza would not be viable without American funding. Congressional investigations and condemnations have led nowhere. UNRWA has adopted neutrality policies, but it has refused to put up a firewall between it and Hamas. And it can’t, because it has become an arm of Hamas. UNRWA is on the front lines of the Hamas War in Gaza.
Trade Promotion Authority Not Free Trade Utopia it Seems
Thirty-five of the 36 House Republican freshmen in Congress have said they would like to provide President Obama with “Trade Promotion Authority” (TPA), which would allow him to “fast-track” the negotiation of reciprocal trade agreements, instead of wrangling through the specifics with Congress. Ostensibly, it would make free trade agreements easier to implement.
Rohrabacher: California is the Model, if Amnesty Passes
“If we have amnesty, the breakdown that has happened in California will be the model of what happens to the whole country,” said Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, in an exclusive interview with SFPPR News & Analysis. Should Congress grant amnesty, Rohrabacher, who represents Southern California’s 48th congressional district, projects…
Christians in the Middle East Face Genocide
Where is America led by President Obama? You, Mr. President, have surrounded yourself with advisors loyal to the International Muslim Brotherhood. You have spent billions of American tax-payer dollars to support them. You spoke strongly on their behalf every time you felt that their rights were in jeopardy. Why can’t we see you offer the same support to the Christians of Mosul? Noon is the Arabic letter that represents…
Conservatives Introduce "TEA" Highway Bill
While Graves, Lee and Rubio may believe they’re offloading their federal gas tax revenue problem to the states, in reality, they’re seeking to compound the problem 50-fold; the states aren’t any better than the feds on transportation funding. We should not be encouraging more tolling of any kind, whether at the federal or state level. Tolls are a tax. The principle of “pay-as-you-go”…
Moscow’s Vladimir Putin has resolved to send his energy to the European Union via Turkey. Ankara’s Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has accepted for his own geopolitical reasons and for the benefit of the neo-Ottomanist project, an attempt to re-create Turkic political, social, economic, and cultural dominion in its former imperial space, space some Western observers who have judged that the Islamic democracy has thus been merely assigned the inconsequential role of a transit area.
On December 1, the United Nation’s annual climate conference opened in Lima, Peru. The two week Conference of the Parties brings together delegates from 194 countries to discuss ways to handle “climate change.” It is easy to dismiss these meetings; this one marks the twentieth year of such gatherings, as just excuses for bureaucrats and activists to travel to exotic locales to have a good time, dressed up with bloviating rhetoric about “saving the planet.” The hippy-dippy weathermen image has been elevated this year by holding meetings in tents. As the UN itself describes the setting, “Much of the social pulse of the Conference is felt outdoors, in an almost park-like setting in the areas between the facilities.” Conference President Manuel Pulgar-Vidal, Environment Minister of Peru, pledged that “voices will be heard” and “bridges will be built.” Marchers waved signs proclaiming “Keep the Oil in the Soil” and other Luddite notions. In other words, the usual spectacle.
Diane Douglas, a little-known, outspoken opponent of Common Core who ran for Arizona Superintendent of Schools on that issue, surprised everyone this fall when she won. Incredibly, only five days after the election – the day it was announced she had won – a couple of opponents launched a recall effort against her. They formed a political committee and started a Facebook page, which has almost 10,000 likes already.
