Obama-says - CONGRESS

Laws? Rules? They’re for lesser people than “The One”…

The New York Times is reporting that the Obama administration is working behind the scenes to “forge a sweeping international climate change agreement to compel nations to cut their planet-warming fossil fuel emissions,” without seeking approval from Congress whatsoever:

In preparation for this agreement, to be signed at a United Nations summitmeeting in 2015 in Paris, the negotiators are meeting with diplomats from other countries to broker a deal to commit some of the world’s largest economies to enact laws to reduce their carbon pollution. But under the Constitution, a president may enter into a legally binding treaty only if it is approved by a two-thirds majority of the Senate. <

To sidestep that requirement, President Obama’s climate negotiators are devising what they call a “politically binding” deal that would “name and shame” countries into cutting their emissions. The deal is likely…

The Left’s Endless War on Scott Walker’s Success in Wisconsin

The fact that Governor Walker has turned Wisconsin around so rapidly, DESPITE such lockstep opposition from the Left, makes his results all the more impressive. Once he wins reelection in November (and he will), watch for him to be one of the favorites to win the GOP nomination for President in 2016…

When Wisconsin governor Scott Walker first enacted his public employee union reforms, the left went nuts and took over the state capitol building. And lost.

Then they mounted a campaign to recall Walker. And lost.

Then they tried to use the force of government to intimidate and harass Walker supporters. And lost.

Now they’re running another candidate against Walker but he may have cut them off at the pass.

Michael Barone writes at The Washington Examiner…

Letting the cat out of the bag on the role of public employee unions

Noam Scheiber makes a good case for the importance of the Wisconsin governor’s race at the New Republic. But the most interesting thing comes in what Scheiber, perhaps inadvertently, admits. Referring to the limitations on public employee union bargaining imposed by Governor Scott Walker and the Republican legislature, Scheiber writes, “He’s effectively defunded a key Democratic constituency.”

Let’s unpack…

Andrea Tantaros: I will not apologize for criticizing radical Islamic jihadism

These days, NOT instinctively apologizing for any/all things is incredibly rare. Kudos to Ms. Tantaros here….

Originally posted on Twitchy:

As Twitchy reported on Wednesday, the Asian American Journalists Association is demanding an apology from Andrea Tantaros Fox News for comments made by Tantaros on “Outnumbered.”:

AAJA calls for Tantaros and Fox News to apologize for the irresponsible, inflammatory statements. We also call on Fox News to discourage its journalists from making blanket comments that serve to perpetuate hate and Islamophobia.

Commenting on the brutality of the ISIS terrorists who beheaded journalist James Foley, Tantaros said, “You can’t solve it with a dialogue. You can’t solve it with a summit. You solve it with a bullet to the head. It’s the only thing these people understand.” As we noted in our earlier post, that seems like a reasonably accurate assessment of violent Islamic jihadis.

A defiant Tantaros declared today that she spoke the truth and has no intention of apologizing. Period.

So far, reaction on Twitter has been uniformly positive:

President Lob Wedge, doing what he does best….

Originally posted on Nice Deb:

Megyn Kelly has been on a tear for the past couple of days because of the president’s decision to go on another fundraising junket this weekend, while ISIS continues its assaults in Syria and Iraq, and Russia invades the Ukraine.

Thursday night, she had on frequent guest, Fox News’digital political editor Chris Stirewalt to talk about Obama’s admission that he has “no strategy” to go after ISIS and its safe haven in Syria.

“Not to worry,” she quipped. “He is spending all day tomorrow in the Situation Room…..oh – wait….”

No, the president will be off to another series of fund raisers, while, “there’s just a few Americans waiting to have their heads cut off in the custody of this terror group,” Kelly said, apologizing for being flippant but calling the situation “disturbing.”

Stirewalt snarked, “so the president’s the president wherever he goes and  he’ll be able to destroy the whole…

The Obama years have produced a whole new dynamic when it comes to the way we view the economy.

Team Obama sees two economies that compete with each other: the public economy vs. the private economy.

The public economy, which is funded by taxpayers, has historically been viewed as the servant of the private economy. No longer.

The president makes it clear to entrepreneurs, innovators, and small business owners that they “did not build” their businesses or invent their inventions by themselves. They need to give equal credit to the public economy.

The patent office deserves just as much credit as Edison for inventing the light bulb, goes the thinking.

As Mr. Obama tends to do, he pits groups against each other, in this case, the producers against the bureaucrats. He makes it clear his desire to redistribute resources from those who earned it in the private…
