EPA Chief Says Her Job Is To Bring Justice To ‘People Of Color’

Just as NASA has been repurposed to provide outreach to Muslims, the Environmental Protection Agency is not about the environment. It’s about ‘Justice’ for blacks.

EPA head Gina McCarthy

EPA head Gina McCarthy

The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed global warming regulations aren’t just about stemming global temperature rises — according to agency’s chief, they are also about “justice” for “communities of color.”

“Carbon pollution standards are an issue of justice,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy in a teleconference call with environmental activists. “If we want to protect communities of color, we need to protect them from climate change.”

McCarthy is referring to the EPA’s proposed rule that would limit carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants. The agency says the rule will not only help fight global warming, but will also improve public health as coal-fired power plants are shuttered. McCarthy, however, put special emphasis on how the rule would reduce asthma rates, which affect African-American children.”

That makes us all feel better, right?

No. It’s BS. It’s all about charging businesses for alleged ‘Pollution’ of carbon dioxide. That money will go to the government for dolts like this to use. It will also destroy jobs.

CBC Wants Federal Control Of Local Police

elijah_cummings_gty_605-550x298

The Congressional Black Caucus wants President Obama to appoint a ‘Police Czar’. They say they want to prevent ‘More Ferguson’s’. That could mean that they want looting stopped but I take that to mean they want a task force to prevent young black men from getting shot by white cops.

Speaking for the CBC, Rep. Elijah Cummings believes that this utopia can be attained if only the federal government is given just a little more control over Americans.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, along with other members of the Congressional Black Caucus, sent a letter Monday to President Barack Obama, urging the administration to pursue changes to local law enforcement structure to “prevent more Fergusons,” including a federal czar to oversee local law enforcement.

“The administration must quickly establish a national commission to review existing police policies and practices,” the letter reads. “And identify the best policies and practices that can prevent more Fergusons and vastly improve policing in communities across the nation.”

In addition to the commission, the letter calls for the appointment of a federal czar within the Justice Department to monitor and oversee local police departments that receive federal funding.”

OK. Now I understand. They want this oversight under the control of the Department of Justice whose head is Eric Holder.

Bad idea… as a matter of fact it’s a terrible idea. Holder has shown himself to be uninterested in justice. He is a revolutionary whose focus is on control. That is not American.

“Why I’m no longer president of the Green Party of Canada”

Another one from Canadian Bob. This is from the Canadian Jewish News:

Paul Estrin

Paul Estrin

My name is Paul Estrin. Until Aug. 5, I was the president of the Green Party of Canada.

On July 25, I published a blog on the party’s website entitled “Why Gaza makes me sad.” My comments were moderate in nature. The essential point I conveyed was that I was, and still am, saddened by what is happening in Gaza. By highlighting Hamas’ cynical tactics, I was trying to show that the conflict is not black and white – a thesis in opposition to what other members of the party seemed to be suggesting.

Sadly, my moderate article criticizing a violent terrorist group could not be tolerated by a majority of the party membership. The article was eventually removed from the website – there was apparently no room within the party for dialogue – but not before some online commenters issued threats about my personal safety. Those comments concern me a great deal.

Ultimately, my dissenting view led to me being drummed out of my position.”

Estrin, a Jew, was drummed out of the Green party because he supported Israel’s right to exist. The Green party, like other leftist groups, is based on a requirement that members exhibit a blind support for the far left, anti-Semitic of their supporters. As we see, it’s not enough to be the national head. Everyone has to toe the line established but those providing the funding.

How many know that George Soros, a Jew, joined forces with Nazis during WWII to root out other Jews? He is a self-loathing Jew. He finances anti-Semitic groups.

14,646 duplicate voters flagged in Virginia, Maryland

ACORN may have been broken up but this is their legacy and it lives on. Remember when ACORN was paying people to register voters? Those people registered the same voter many times – as many as 72 times has been documented. Allk those registrations are still on the books. It’s no wonder the Obama administration is opposed to requiring photo ID to vote. That step could undo the fraud.

An election-watch group says 14,646 people hold voter registrations in Maryland and in Fairfax County, Va.

An election-integrity group is challenging the status of nearly 15,000 voters reportedly registered in both Fairfax County and Maryland.

Virginia Voters Alliance on Wednesday urged Fairfax’s electoral board to do what state officials have so far not done across the commonwealth: Purge those duplicate voters.

VVA President Reagan George complained the state Department of Elections is classifying all duplicate registrations as “inactive voters.”

That means 43,896 voters alleged to be registered in both Virginia and Maryland would stay in Virginia’s statewide database — and remain eligible to vote — until 2019.”

Here Is The Real Story About The Michael Brown Robbery Video

Eric Holder’s Department of Justice told Ferguson Police To NOT Release the video

The video below, from the store’s surveillance cameras, allegedly shows Brown strong-arming the person at the store. It doesn’t justify his getting shot. More investigation needs to be done before the shooting can be classed as justified or unjustified.

The real, big, story is that the DOJ told the police to not release the video. What could have been their motive for making this demand?

The DOJ does not represent justice. They represent lies and distortions in the name of skin color.

Goldie Taylor is an MSNBC contributor who’s followed this case closely. She tries to spin it as evidence that the Ferguson police were acting rashly in releasing the video, but doesn’t it show that the Obama administration is trying to keep information away from the public?”

“EPA Blames Texas For Illinois Air Pollution”

EPA Administratrix Gina McCarthy

EPA Administratrix Gina McCarthy

These federal agencies are out of control. The IRS has been targeting conservative groups, Homeland Security is doing everything it can to reduce security in the homeland, and the Environmental Protection Agency is trying to shut down every successful entity in the country. Now they are going after the state of Texas.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is blaming power plants in Texas for Illinois air pollution and is using the accusation to justify restrictions on Texas power plants. EPA claims its cross-state pollution rule, intended to protect communities in one state from pollution drifting from other states, justifies placing restrictions on Texas power plants EPA claims are polluting Granite City, Illinois.

EPA’s assertion Texas power plants are causing Illinois pollution raised eyebrows for several reasons. Granite City is approximately 500 miles from the Texas border and even farther away from Lone Star State major metropolitan regions. Granite City is northeast of Texas, with prevailing winds rarely trekking in that direction from Texas. In addition, a local steel mill, which has been an important source of the town’s prosperity since the 1890s, has long been recognized as a primary source of air pollution in Granite City.

EPA, however, claims it has devised computer models that indicate some sulfur dioxide from Texas power plants may reach Granite City, which has a population of 30,000.”

They have devised, “Computer models”. Again, the scientists have come up with a theory and then found, or manufactured, evidence to support their position. This is quite common in the environmental movement and their assertions are always wrong. This one is as well.

Texas was only included in portions of the rule based on the projected impact on a single county in Illinois. And the air quality monitor in Illinois which EPA claims had the fingerprints of Texas pollution on it was located right next to a smelter. On this thin legal reed the EPA is imposing restrictions on Texas several times as severe as states with much more significant interstate pollution problems,” said Kathleen White, director of the Armstrong Center for Energy and the Environment at Texas Public Policy Foundation.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) agreed, saying EPA failed to account properly for the steel mill’s influence on Granite City’s air pollution. Of the three air pollution monitors in the town and surrounding Madison County, the only one allegedly linked to Texas is the one downwind of the steel mill.”

Phony data from a flawed source. That’s typical of the environmentalists and the Obama administration in general.

National Review: “Obama’s Treachery and Republican Silence”

Horowitz has a unique insight into the actions of the left. He was raised by parents who were communists. From Wiki: “Between 1956 and 1975, Horowitz was an outspoken adherent of the New Left before rejecting leftism completely.”

The worst part of this is the part about Republican silence.

obama gives us the finger_thumb[41]

When will they stop pretending this is a normal presidency?”

By David Horowitz

Barack Obama deliberately set out to lose the war in Iraq, and he did. He defied the advice of his joint chiefs of staff to secure America’s formidable military presence and keep 20,000 troops in country, and left Iraq to its own devices and the tender mercies of Iran. In doing so, he betrayed every American and Iraqi who gave his life to create a free Iraq and keep it out of the clutches of the terrorists.

Iraq is now a war zone dominated by the terrorist forces of the Islamic State, whose rise Obama’s policies fostered. Both his secretaries of state praised the animal Bashar Assad as a “reformer” and a man of “peace,” helping him to thwart his domestic opposition. The Islamic State was born out of the Syrian chaos that ensued.”

How Should America Deal With Our Lawless President?

Obama-Censure2-G

As RD Walker wrote in an article below, President Obama has jockeyed himself into a position where his opposition, the Republican leadership, has to loudly claim that impeachment is not a possibility. His reasoning is sound as always.

Democrats have set this agenda, giving the President cover against being impeached.

What else can be done?

First let’s examine what the right is worried about. John Fund, in an article for National Review, calls impeachment, “…akin to detonating a nuclear weapon on the field of politics.”. He calls for censure instead. But what would he be censured for?

Obama has been threatening to take action himself to resolve our open border and immigration problems. Most believe that he will sign an order granting the immigrants permission to stay in the country.

But Obama is a revolutionary. He may spend an awful lot of time recreating but he does not shy away from his self-proclaimed goal of remaking the country. It seems that if he has set up this anti-impeachment protection he is planning a serious power grab. What if he didn’t just grant amnesty but, with a stroke of his pen, also granted them citizenship? Including the right to vote?

Who would stop him from doing this? And how would they accomplish it? A bold move like that would catch everyone off guard. It would be illegal, yes. But who would reverse the move, and how? It seems that a censure would be ignored by the President just as Attorney General Holder has ignored being held in contempt of Congress. These revolutionaries are not afraid of contempt charges or censure. The prize is just too important and they are keeping their eyes on it.

Does anyone really think that Speaker Boehner would reverse himself if Obama did something so dramatic and unlawful? Would he say, “I said impeachment was off the table but now it’s back on. We’re pursuing it in the House of Representatives”? I don’t see it. So far Boehner has been acting like an ally to Obama.

What would the people do? At what point would we rebel?

This is conjecture, certainly, but it is based on history. We have watched this President take powers away from the Congress that are ensured by our Constitution and give them to himself. This is not an accident. It is the plan. It is how he intends to ‘Fundamentally Transform’ our country. He has been making the Congress irrelevant and is working to do the same thing to the courts.

These are the three branches of our government. They are supposed to keep each other in check, to make sure one does not become tyrannical. If the Legislative and Judicial branches are emasculated all power will devolve to the third branch, the Executive.

Can this be stopped? How?

“U.S. attorney general to Gov. Rick Scott: We’re watching you”

These are Chicago-style intimidation tactics. Eric Holder is a bully. Scott is up for reelection and recently converted-to-a-Democrat Charlie Crist is running against him.

Holder says he sees racism everywhere. The fact that Florida has tightened up its voting procedures under Scott is enough to get a threat from the head of the Department of Justice. That is the same DOJ that sent people to Florida to help organize demonstrations against George Zimmerman, the man who killed Trayvon Martin, a young black man.

Holder sees everything as a matter of skin color. If he encounters a white person he persecutes them. If he encounters a black person he supports them – all because of skin color. It was his DOJ, also, that refused to prosecute the New Black Panthers members who intimidated voters at a pollin place in Philadelphia.

Eric-Holder-DC

TALLAHASSEE — As Florida’s next election draws closer, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has a stern warning for Gov. Rick Scott: We’re watching you.

Holder sent a scathing letter to the Republican governor that cited “troubling” voting changes and said the Justice Department is “carefully monitoring” Florida’s upcoming elections.

“We will not hesitate to use all tools and legal authorities at our disposal to fight against racial discrimination, to stand against disenfranchisement and to safeguard the right of every eligible American to cast a ballot,” Holder wrote.

Scott called Holder’s action “pure politics” and said it was “just them trying to help Charlie Crist,” his likely Democratic opponent in November.

Repeatedly chastising Scott, Holder wrote: “During your tenure, your state has repeatedly added barriers to voting and restricted access to the polls.”

“Why Do American Jews Support Obama?”

President Obama has shown himself to be no friend of Israel. He has supported their enemies and has told Jewish leaders that Israel must concede to Hamas, for instance. Under his leadership he has sent money to Hamas but has restricted travel to, and assistance for, Israel. So why do Jews in the United States still support him?

It took a Canadian interviewer to actually ask a Jew that question. Has this question ever been asked by an American news person?

In this case it was asked of Ben Shapiro. Shapiro is a Jew and a conservative. He is also very lucid in his explanation. This is a revealing six minutes. Shapiro shows us why The majority of American Jews will never support conservative principles.

Hat tip to Kate for finding this

In a related manner Kate also has a post that explains the anti-Semitism of the left. She has a link to an article in thee UK Telegraph which explains that it is not a new problem. It is written by Daniel Hannan. Many of you know that Hannan has been warning the world about the left, including President Obama. It begins with this video:


Hannan then goes on to say:

How, as a socialist, can you not be an anti-Semite?” Adolf Hitler asked his party members in 1920. No one thought it an odd question. Anti-Semitism was at that time widely understood to be part of the broader revolutionary movement against markets, property and capital.
The man who coined the term “socialism,” the nineteenth-century French revolutionary, Pierre Leroux, had told his comrades: “When we speak of the Jews, we mean the Jewish spirit – the spirit of profit, of lucre, of gain, of speculation; in a word, the banker’s spirit.”
The man who popularised the term “anti-Semitism” had taken a similar line. Wilhelm Marr, a radical nineteenth-century German Leftist, may not have been the first person to use the word, but he certainly – and approvingly – brought it to a wide audience: “Anti-Semitism is a Socialist movement,” he pronounced, “only nobler and purer in form than Social Democracy”.

So it’s about hate but it’s also about demonizing capitalism. How convenient for Socialists to try to destroy capitalism and to paint Jews as the face of it.

Obama Now Inventing Reasons To Pull Support From Israel

He is pissed that the Israeli media is dissing John Kerry’s stupid peace proposal. That’s the proposal, you may remember, that gave Hamas everything they wanted and Israel nothing they wanted… the one Israel rejected.

The petulant child is upset that the media there has portrayed the proposal that way even though it’s true.

Obama Administration Enraged About Israeli Criticism Of Kerry

According to President Obama’s deputy national security adviser Tony Blinken, that type of criticism crosses a line.”

Oooh. Another red line.

Israel has no better friend, no stronger defender than John Kerry,” He said the criticism of Kerry was based on “people leaking things that are either misinformed, or attempting to misinform.”

Other officials used even harsher language, saying the attacks on Kerry crossed a line and put the relationship between the U.S. and Israel in jeopardy. Those officials insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter on the record by name.

In trying to implement the cease-fire over the weekend, “U.S. Secretary of State of State John Kerry ruined everything,” wrote columnist Ari Shavit in Monday’s Haaretz, Israel’s leading liberal newspaper. “Very senior officials in Jerusalem described the proposal that Kerry put on the table as a ‘strategic terrorist attack’.”

According to the article linked the Palestinian Authority actually agrees with Israel’s assessment of the proposal.

The United States Lowers Israel’s Diplomatic Shield at the United Nations

Despite a history of rocky relations between U.S. President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Obama administration could largely be counted on to watch Israel’s back in the U.N. Security Council, where it succeeded for more than five years in blocking successive efforts by the Palestinians to gain more of the trappings of an independent state and to get the world body to formally censure Israeli settlement policies.

That changed after the stroke of midnight Sunday when, in the early minutes of Monday, July 28, the U.N. Security Council, with the backing of the United States, issued a formal “presidential statement” demanding that Israel and Hamas implement an “immediate and unconditional” cease-fire to end fighting that has left more than 1,000 Palestinians and 43 Israelis dead. The Palestinians say they will continue to seek Security Council support for a legally enforceable resolution demanding that Israel halt its military offensive in Gaza.”

Prager: “Who Won The Vietnam War?

A week or so ago we posted a piece by Bill Whittle here. In it he made the assertion that the United States actually won the war in Vietnam against communist forces but Democrats in Congress gave the country away to North Vietnam a couple years later.

It’s commonly stated by news people and educators that the US lost the war. So it has become understood that we lost. But we didn’t.

Some of our readers saw Whittle’s piece and thanked him for the history lesson. They seemed to be thankful for the information.

Dennis Prager runs what he calls Prager University. He uses it to disseminate truths to counteract the deliberate lies we are being fed. Here he presents the real truth about our winning – and then losing – the war in VietNam in more detail. It’s ugly but true. Democrats reneged on our promises to South Vietnam.

Today they are trying to do the same things to our ally Israel. History repeats. Is there nothing we can do to prevent it this time?

“The Government Is Cracking Down on School Bake Sales”

Of course they are. It’s all about regimentation, you know. The people may not make their own decisions about what they eat. The government must mandate not just nutrition standards but comfort food as well. Comfort food must be eliminated.

The people must not be comfortable.

States are trying to circumvent federal nutrition standards that would limit sugary foods at school fundraisers.

food-police

Barely a month after federal regulations for school cafeterias kicked in, states are already pushing back.

Specifically, they’re fighting nutrition standards that would considerably alter one of the most sacred rituals of the American public school system: bake sales.

Twelve states have established their own policies to circumvent regulations in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 that apply to “competitive snacks,” or any foods and beverages sold to students on school grounds that are not part of the Agriculture Department’s school meal programs, according to the National Association of State Boards of Education. Competitive snacks appear in vending machines, school stores, and food and beverages, including items sold at bake sales.”

“Since Obama became President, 1.5 MILLION people have been added to secret “suspected terrorist” list”

From Doug Ross:

It would seem that the era of hope and change ended about the time that Barack Obama took his oath of office.

The scale of the [federal government's] secret [terror] blacklist was revealed in a civil suit over the Terrorist Screening Database, and it shocked the judge.

99 percent of the names submitted to the list are accepted; the court called this “wildly loose.” The database has grown from 227,932 names in 2009 to its current stratospheric heights. There is no official, public procedure for having your name removed from the list. The US government is seeking to end the trial by invoking state secrecy.”

The Associated Press has the raw stats:

In fiscal 2009, which ended Sept. 30, 2009, 227,932 names were nominated to the database. In fiscal 2010, which includes the months after the attempted Christmas bombing, nominations rose to 250,847. In fiscal 2012, they increased to 336,712, and in fiscal 2013 — the most recent year provided — nominations jumped to 468,749.””

Elizabeth Warren Defines Utopia

elizabeth warren speaking

Warren spoke on Friday at Netroots Nation, a convention for liberal bloggers and activists. She was very well received. During the speech she outlined eleven tenets that Progressives believe. This is a rather interesting thing for a politician who is being considered for the Presidency to do. It will alienate many in the business world. As well as others who don’t believe that utopia is possible.

- We believe that Wall Street needs stronger rules and tougher enforcement, and we’re willing to fight for it.”

- “We believe in science, and that means that we have a responsibility to protect this Earth.”

- “We believe that the Internet shouldn’t be rigged to benefit big corporations, and that means real net neutrality.”

- “We believe that no one should work full-time and still live in poverty, and that means raising the minimum wage.”

- “We believe that fast-food workers deserve a livable wage, and that means that when they take to the picket line, we are proud to fight alongside them.”

- “We believe that students are entitled to get an education without being crushed by debt.”

- “We believe that after a lifetime of work, people are entitled to retire with dignity, and that means protecting Social Security, Medicare, and pensions.”

- “We believe—I can’t believe I have to say this in 2014—we believe in equal pay for equal work.”

- “We believe that equal means equal, and that’s true in marriage, it’s true in the workplace, it’s true in all of America.”

- “We believe that immigration has made this country strong and vibrant, and that means reform.”

- “And we believe that corporations are not people, that women have a right to their bodies. We will overturn Hobby Lobby and we will fight for it. We will fight for it!”

And the main tenet of conservatives’ philosophy, according to Warren? “I got mine. The rest of you are on your own.”

Communist BRICS Ally To Sink US Dollar

From Trevor Loudon:

Four Marxist ruled states (Brazil, Russia, China and South Africa) together with heavily communist infiltrated India, are working together on a plan which could destroy the US dollar and sink the economy.

From the British communist paper Morning Star:”

Maduro: Brics summit will change the world order

Decisions taken at the Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (Brics) summit will change the course of the 21st century, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said July 16.

“Brics have made very important decisions to change the political and economic world order,” he told his weekly TV programme.

The bloc has “decided to create a development bank with $100 billion (£58bn) as starting capital and a commercial and financial system among its members to use local currencies instead of U.S. dollars.”

Politico: Eric Holder, The Survivor

Politico calls Holder a ‘Survivor’ and asks why he’s still got the job of Attorney General.

I suspect Holder is still there because he is the ‘Enforcer’ who may not break legs but is willing to do about anything else to protect President Obama.

Why the hell is Eric Holder still around? That’s a question many of Barack Obama’s political advisers have asked at various points throughout Holder’s tumultuous five years at the helm of the Justice Department.

For most of Obama’s presidency, in fact, if there’s been controversy, Holder was likely to be in the middle of it, from the failed efforts to close Guantánamo Bay and to prosecute alleged Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in a Manhattan court to his inability to send Wall Street executives involved in the mortgage meltdown to jail.

holder drawing

He’s a race man,” says Charles Ogletree, a longtime friend of Holder’s who taught and mentored Obama and his wife, Michelle, as Harvard Law School students in the 1980s. “He’s gone farther and deeper into some issues of race than the White House would like, but I know he has the president’s well-wishes. It’s clear [Obama and Holder] believe in the same things.”

Holder himself recently told another African-American friend that he feels part of his job is “to talk about things the president can’t talk about as easily.” Asked to describe Holder’s role, one of his former top aides described him as “Obama’s heat shield.”

Somebody In Norfolk, Nebraska Disrespected Obama

Now Eric Holder and the Department of Justice are investigating.

They put an outhouse on the back of a truck and labeled it, ‘Obama’s Presidential Library’. Then they drove it down the street during the town’s July 4th parade.

obama library float

Holder apparently thinks this foolishness is more important than the IRS scandal, Fast and Furious gun running, and enforcement of immigration laws. From Omaha.com:

Justice Department enters fray over 4th of July parade float in Norfolk

The U.S. Department of Justice has joined the discussions over a controversial float in the Norfolk Independence Day parade.
The department sent a member of its Community Relations Service team, which gets involved in discrimination disputes, to a Thursday meeting about the issue. Also at the meeting were the NAACP, the Norfolk mayor and The Independent Order of Odd Fellows.”

This act is intimidation, pure and simple. Holder is telling everyone, “No one will speak out against Dear Leader.”

They’re getting frisky, aren’t they? This article by Richard Eskow is full-on communism.

Eskow makes a lot of allegations but nowhere in his piece does he justify the theft of property from the owners of these companies. Neither does he make a case that nationalizing them will reduce the things he complains about.

“They’re huge and ruthless and define our lives. They’re close to monopolies. Let’s make them public utilities”

How will nationalizing them make them smaller, less ruthless or cause them to define our lives?

Fool.
