I haven’t done a “News Briefs” for a while as I have been generally just posing individual pieces. It seemed like a good time as we are just under a week since the 2014 midterm elections where the Democrats got swamped, dumped, blown out. If you have read any of my stuff you’ll know that this pleases me. If you read any of my stuff you may also know that having main-stream Republicans in more power does not make me comfortable. So these new briefs have multiple subjects;
I am not sure how long the mainstream media will nip at the heals of President Obama so I’ll just enjoy the feeding frenzy as they seem to have remembered some sense of journalistic ability. This cannot last as they fundamentally hate center and center-right America. I am going to do this news brief a little differently as I’ll just post my favorite quote from the liberal writer’s article with a link to the full post. I hope that you enjoy as much as I have!
News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories. This edition is all about the efforts of Obama’s EPA to make their own laws via extra-constitutional regulations and shenanigans;
Brief 1: The headline says it all; “Reckless and lawless EPA: Running on empty.” The EPA mandates that refineries purchase a certain percentage of cellulosic biofuels to support sustainable energy. The not-so-funny thing is that cellulosic biofuels do NOT exist yet not only did EPA levy fines, but upped the ante by increasing the percentage for 2013. You could argue that this is how big government works, but you’d have to ignore the fact that the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that the EPA “exceeded its authority” in the original case.
I am going to shock you…
- Politicians lie!
- The main stream (old media) covers for them…at least the Demoncrats.
Brief 1: July’s jobs report came out and Obama hit the stump bragging about how many private sector jobs were created that month. Apparently we are heading in the right direction;
“That means that we’ve now created 4.5 million new jobs over the last 29 months, and 1.1 million new jobs so far this year. Those are our neighbors and family members finding work and the security that comes with work.”
News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories. This edition is all about lies that liers tell to lie to you;
Brief 1: The attempt Tuesday to use a legal procedure to recall a governor who is not accused of illegal activities failed and Republican Governor Scott Walker won bigger than his original election. Events (AND NEWS STORIES) leading up to the election seemed to predict a very tight race. That’s the LIE. Walker cruised to a win and now the democrat media machine is trying to make the win all about money. They even are fudging the figures to make it look like the Republicans outspent the democrats. This is BIG news and a BIG win for TEA Party folks. If you want proof that this was a very important election look at this loaded quote from ABC Mews the day before the election;
Brief 6: Shortly after the new year began in 2012 President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act. Tucked into the bill is a provision that many believe greatly expands the ability of the federal government take you into custody and hold you indefinitely;
News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories. This edition is all about how Obama’s unconstitutional actions WILL affect your life
Brief 1: One option that a president has to get some of his controversial nominees appointed is to wait for Congress to recess and then is able to appoint them to a limited term. I remember celebrating W’s recess appointment of John Bolton as U.N. ambassador. Obama stired controversy on recent recess appointments because Congress was not actually in recess. The Supreme Court and settled law had determined that if Congress was not in session for three or more days then they were in recess. Obama, with the backing of his Justice Department waited ONE DAY to claim a recess and appoint his henchmen. Fortunately we have a strong Congress who cares about maintain the delicate balance of the three branches of government and will soon fix/find a way to reverse the appointments – – Oh wait we don’t have enough Congressmen with the guts to take on Obama.
I hesitate to call my list “news stories” because many of them have not been covered by the Obama-media because they would make the liberal administration look like the miserable failure that it has been. On with the list.
- The Economy: If you look past the cheerleading reporting that the recession is over and jobs are being created, and a falling unemployment percent, you might just see how bad things still are. I don’t remember a time where I have sweated my employment for so long. I am not consumed, but the gnawing feeling is always there in the background. As of November 2011 the U6 Unemployment (U-6 = Total unemployed, plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force, plus total employed part time for economic reasons, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus all persons marginally attached to the labor force) rate is 15.6 percent.
News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories. This edition is all about how the progressive, secular left is waging war on religion allegedly in the name of tolerance. The false claim of a constitutional provision requiring a “separation of church and state” has been liberally interpreted to attempt to remove any hint of religion from public places while the constitution actually states;
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
You decide whether the following briefs demonstrate a attempt to limit the free exercise of religion:
News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories. This edition is all about America the land of the free. The “free” used to refer to our God-given freedoms outlined in our founding documents, but the term has mutated over decades of nanny-state policies to mean what the government “gives” us for free. There is perhaps no better continuing example of the progressive, left-winged, drive-by, main-stream media’s collusion with Democrats than its continuing dumbing down of Americans. Although the scarier part is that many accept, even crave the handouts.
