Mitch McConnell Must Never Be Elected Again

Mitch McConnell Must Never Be Elected Again:

Kentuckians, you should be ashamed of what you have wrought on this nation.  And to you Republican Senators who voted to retain McConnell as Majority Leader – you are shameful for supporting this execrable individual.   Start worrying about pulling this nation out of the grasp of the Left and stop worrying about your precious committee assignments and your funding.  Do what you were elected to do: LEAD this nation out of the disaster wrought by Barack Obama and his cohorts.  You haven’t been doing this, and blood of the aborted unborn is partially on your hands as well. You enabled McConnell to pull these stunts.  And spare me the whining about Obama’s veto – it is YOUR job to take advantage of procedures such as riders on existing bills.  If you weren’t going to do anything, why did we bother to put you in the majority?
McConnell must go.

Army Corps Of Engineers Official Says EPA Misused And Abused Data To Justify Waters Of The U.S. Rule

Army Corps Of Engineers Official Says EPA Misused And Abused Data To Justify Waters Of The U.S. Rule:

This is something of a bombshell in the on-going saga over the Waters of the U.S. rule (also known a the federal government’s attempt to extend regulatory control over all land that gets wet or even might get wet). According to documents obtained by Senator Jim Inhofe, the Army Corps of Engineers is disputing the...

When Will the Right Get Serious About Evil?

When Will the Right Get Serious About Evil?:

Excellent column by Kurt Schlichter at TownHall.com today. It’s something I’ve been advocating and trying to carry out for over 10 years now.
It involves the Right finally getting serious about the all-out war against good in which we find ourselves. The one being prosecuted by the Left against all that is or has ever been good about America, against Christianity and Christian principles in the public square.
It involves the need for conservatives to finally stop playing nice with evil, end the pretense that evil is just “misunderstood,” cease all efforts to accommodate and and compromise with evil, and stop encouraging those who do accommodate and collaborate with evil.
For too long, our side has suffered under the lie that evil can be reasoned with, that it somehow means well, that we can find “common ground” with evil, that we can have a “win-win” with evil.
For too long, many on our side have also patted on the back those who are soft on evil, gushing and glowing over the slightest gesture of opposition toward evil as if gestures really accomplished anything.
That’s a very, very good strategy for losing the war.
Let me repeat and agree with again: We either win or we are going to be enslaved to the metastasizing progressive monster forever.
We’ve been slobbering at the feet of the Left for so long, I just hope there’s enough time and opportunity to turn the tide.

Obama’s New Energy Plan Could Cost $2.5 Trillion in Lost Economic Growth

Obama’s New Energy Plan Could Cost $2.5 Trillion in Lost Economic Growth:

The Obama administration unveiled its climate change regulations for new and existing power plants, calling the plan “the biggest, most important step we’ve ever taken to combat climate change.”
It may be the most “important” from a top-down, regulatory mandate for high energy prices, but it won’t accomplish much, if anything, in terms of combating climate change.
Even though electricity generation accounts for the single-largest source of carbon dioxide emissions in the United States, the estimated reduction is minuscule compared to global greenhouse gas emissions.
Climatologists estimate that the administration’s climate regulations will avert less than two hundredths of a degree Celsius by 2100.
In fact all the plan will do is bring about higher energy bills, lost income, fewer jobs, and a weaker economy – with little to no impact on the earth’s temperature.
The role of the federal government should not be to promote or restrict any energy source or technology but instead to enforce free market policies that generate innovation and provide competitive prices.

After this JAW-DROPPING comment, homeland security chief should resign immediately

After this JAW-DROPPING comment, homeland security chief should resign immediately:

I find it unconscionable that the person entrusted with the security of the American homeland is more concerned about “building trust” and “respect” of and for the Muslim community. I tend to believe it’s the Muslim community that needs to earn the trust of the American people and display its respect and honor of our way of life and the rule of law in this Constitutional Republic.
How is it that Jeh Johnson can say something so asinine without any national outrage? Actually, Johnson should resign immediately, because his statements disqualify him from being objective in protecting the American people. I dare say President Obama won’t relieve him of his duties because it seems to be the sentiment of Obama and his administration.

Renewables Fail Even When They Succeed

Renewables Fail Even When They Succeed:

The costs of renewables are dropping, thanks in large part to generous state subsidies and production chains that have helped to drive down prices of solar panels and to a lesser extent wind turbines. But cheaper doesn’t yet mean cheap—renewables still rely on government support to help them fight fossil fuels for market share—and up-front costs aren’t the only thing holding us back from a 100 percent wind-and-solar-powered society. Intermittency, the notion that wind and solar can only generate power when it’s windy or sunny, sets a limit to how much we can rely on renewables. During windless nights, we need backups (read: nuclear or fossil fuel plants) ready to come online, but the Economist notes that “it is hard to get people to build gas-fired power stations that will not be used very much—which in markets with a lot of renewables is their inevitable fate.”
That’s not the only way in which intermittency hamstrings renewables. The FT today highlights research by German economist Lion Hirth, who has argued that intermittency also consigns renewable power generators to “price cannibalization”. The upshot: when renewables hit peak production they effectively flood the wholesale electricity market, depressing prices and hurting their own bottom line. Intermittency, it seems, has yet another ugly side effect.It’s therefore not enough to focus solely on further depressing the price of solar panels or wind turbines. Power generation needs to be, above all, consistent, and the vagaries of weather prevent renewables from being so. Finding a way cheaply and efficiently to store wind and solar power on a commercial scale would, of course, solve most of these problems (though grids will still need updating to account for the more distributed nature of these new power sources). To that end, and as the Economist argues, we’d be better served diverting money away from the propping up of less efficient current-generation renewables and towards the research and development of technologies that will allow wind and solar to out-muscle fossil fuels on their own merits.

Obama’s Flood of Muslim Refugees must be stopped

Obama’s Flood of Muslim Refugees must be stopped:






Here is legislation that should be supported by every freedom-loving American. A Texas Republican congressman, Rep. Brian Babin, last Wednesday introduced the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act, H.R. 3314, which would immediately suspend Obama's disastrous and dangerous refugee resettlement program, pending a complete review of its federal, state and local costs.

Those costs are not just financial. Rep. Babin explained: "It is extremely unsettling that the Obama administration would continue to expand the U.S. resettlement program at such an irresponsible pace in light of our economic and national security challenges. While this program may be warranted in certain situations, it is continuing at an unchecked pace. For the past decade the U.S. has been admitting roughly 70,000 new refugees a year, with little understanding of the economic and social costs on our communities."

The social costs are incalculable. Obama has been importing hundreds of thousands of Muslims under the Refugee Resettlement Program. Despite the spike in jihad plots and attacks in the U.S. and the genocide of non-Muslims under Shariah, Obama remains unmoved. Under Obama, it's a world where arrogance rules.

Babin's bill would put a check on this program.

"Our legislation," he said, "institutes a common-sense pause in the program so that we can better understand the long-term and short-term costs that this program has on local governments, states and U.S. taxpayers. It also gives us an opportunity to examine potential national security issues related to entry and resettlement, particularly as federal law enforcement officials are increasingly concerned about home-grown terrorists."
Babin is right. It's always a shock to people when they first find out how refugee resettlement works. Instead of giving refuge to the religious minorities who are persecuted, oppressed and subjugated under the Shariah, we are opening the floodgates to Islamic supremacists and jihadists. (More on Muslim immigration here.) The Obama administration has been and is importing hundreds of thousands of Muslims from jihad nations. No vetting for jihad is being done.

The real victims of the global jihad are the Christians and religious minorities. They are not being offered refuge or asylum here in the U.S., or are held up by unspecified red tape. Obama is not bringing in persecuted Christians ("Christians, what Christians?"), Jews, Bahais, etc.; instead, he is bringing in hundreds of thousands of Muslims. The only refugees we should be resettling from the war-torn Middle East are those Christians and others who have been driven out of their homes by Islamic jihadists, or managed to escape before they were enslaved or massacred. Instead, the United States stands by while they are ethnically cleansed from their ancient homelands.

And what most folks don't know is, it's the Organization of Islamic Cooperation-driven United Nations that decides who gets refugee status. The mandate of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees determines which of the world's "huddled masses" comes to the U.S. as humanitarian refugees.

Refugee resettlement is a euphemism for importing whole Muslim communities, importing jihad. Under the Refugee Resettlement Programs, Muslim communities in their entirety are imported into the United States from jihad nations. I have long documented the targeting of gateway cities (smaller cities) that are overwhelmed with Muslim refugee immigration from countries like Somalia – cities like Emporia, Kansas; Nashville; Greeley and Fort Morgan, Colorado; Lewiston, Maine, et al.

These programs are disastrous to the gateway cities designated for settlement. The sudden influx of refugees causes a drain on city resources that then leads these refugees to move elsewhere and create a drain on new communities, as shown in these reports. Obama has already imported hundreds of thousands of these "refugees," and many, many more are coming.

The only thing more dangerous than the jihadists in our midst are their patrons and benefactors.

WND reported that "the refugee resettlement industry, which includes legions of immigrant rights advocates, lawyers and community organizing groups funded by George Soros, the Rockefeller and Ford foundations, among others, churned out a document in 2013 on how to deal with so-called 'pockets of resistance.' The document, authored by the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, one of the nine government contractors doing resettlement work, advised refugee advocates to research the backgrounds of local people who oppose resettlements and turn them over to the Southern Poverty Law Center for public shaming as 'racists' and 'anti-Muslim' bigots."

This is further proof that the Southern Poverty Law Center, or SPLC, is nothing more than a smear machine designed to destroy the forces of good. These are the tactics of totalitarians and supremacists. And this is who the media turns to for comment on the work of my colleagues and me. There is not one mainstream media outlet that does not quote the SPLC libels when reporting on my work.

Freedom-loving Americans must understand that this is what every one of us, the individual, is up against: a billion-dollar machine of destruction and hate. Churchill said of Islam: "No stronger retrograde force exists in the world." And I would add one thing. No stronger retrograde force exists in the America today than the left.

The Democrats have made refugee resettlement a lucrative business for agencies like Church World Service, Ethiopian Community Development Council, Episcopal Migration Ministries, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, International Rescue Committee, U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and World Relief Corporation. These voluntary agencies are paid by the State Department to place refugees in American cities and towns – and they get $12 to $20 billion every year to do it.

Ironic how most of these agencies represent religions that are being persecuted and slaughtered by these very Muslim communities.

For Democrats, says Ann Corcoran of Refugee Resettlement Watch, all this is "driven by progressives looking for reliable left-wing Democrat voters; that's a driving force. I think there's a certain amount of just wanting to rub diversity in the noses of conservative communities and places where there isn't a lot of diversity and just bringing them in and push the whole multicultural meme on us."

This will forever be a bloody stain on an anti-American, anti-freedom, jihad-aligned presidency. It is more of the poison fruit from the party of treason.
Contact your representative here. Insist that he or she support Babin's bill to put a stop to this madness.

Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” National Journal senior political columnist Ron Fournier said so many of Hillary Clinton’s statements about her email have turned out to not be true, thus he declared it to be “serial disingenuous behavior.” Discussing the two Inspector general who have asked the Department of Justice to look into the fact that classified document were found on Hillary Clinton’s email server, Fournier said, “This is after she said there were no classified documents. This is after she said that she hasn’t violated any rules. This is after she said she is too transparent in all of. This and after she said she only did all of this out of a matter of convenience. None of those statements are true. So we have some serial disingenuous behavior of the Clinton campaign and they are trying to deflect by making this a story about “The New York Times”.

Environmental Disaster: The Renewable Fuel Standard

Environmental Disaster: The Renewable Fuel Standard:

Originally posted at the Capital Research Center

The bipartisan disaster called the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) has all the usual characteristics of bureaucratic central planning: It features unrealistic (actually, impossible) goals, hidden taxes and regulatory burdens, and costly “unintended” consequences, and it’s carried out by anonymous, unelected, unaccountable government officials.
Meanwhile, RFS reduces the mileage of motor vehicles, funnels money from consumers to well-connected “crony capitalists,” raises the price of food for the world’s poor, destroys rain forest and wetlands, and expands a dead zone the size of Connecticut in the Gulf of Mexico.
It was supposed to make us more energy independent. It was supposed to protect the environment, yet it is responsible for converting millions of acres of wetlands and wildlife habitat to corn plantations. Even the “greens” have turned against it. And, like many a horror-movie villain, it’s immortal. … Or is it?
