Americans will soon freeze in the dark, thanks to Obama’s EPA’s War On Coal.
But Africa? Africa’s gonna get $7 billion of our tax dollars to electrify mud huts.
Obama used his address to unveil the “Power Africa” initiative, which includes an initial $7 billion investment from the United States over the next five years. Private companies, including General Electric and Symbion Power, are making an additional $9 billion in commitments with the goal of providing power to millions of Africans crippled by a lack of electricity.
Yeah, that makes sense. Because it’s only Americans who need to be crippled by a lack of electricity.
Sorry Kathleen Sebelius, the NFL isn’t ready for some Obamacare.
On Friday, the NFL indicated that the league had no desire to help the Obama administration sell and implement Obamacare this fall.
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy emailed the Washington Examiner‘s Philip Klein to say the NFL had no plans to help promote Obamacare:
“We have responded to the letters we received from members of Congress to inform them we currently have no plans to engage in this area and have had no substantive contact with the administration about PPACA’s implementation.”
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello emailed the Washington Post the same statement.
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius had said this week the Obama administration was looking to partner with professional sports leagues to market Obamacare exchanges this fall to sell the unpopular healthcare law to the public.
Cue the IRS throwing a penalty flag at Roger Goodell in 3… 2… 1…
Because President CO2 Cutter flew in 20 pizzas last month for himself and some friends. Special delivery, direct from St. Louis, Missouri. 860 miles, more or less.
Apparently you can’t get good take-out in DC.
As Instapundit is fond of saying, I’ll believe this whole CO2 causes Global Warming thing is really a problem when the guy telling me it’s a problem starts acting like it’s a problem.
Until then, he’s just spewing hot air.
The Party giveth, and the people worship The Party.
The Party beckons, and the press works in lockstep with The Party.
The Party dictates, and the Constitution is no match for The Party.
The Party punishes, and the Congress dares not stand up to The Party.
And so, as The Anchoress adroitly points out, we’re doomed.
Because “Heather Has Two Mommies” is coming to the Disney Channel.
In a first for the Disney Channel, next season an episode of Good Luck Charlie will feature a family with two moms.
Producers are currently casting the couple, with production set for next week. The episode will air in early 2014 as part of Good Luck Charlie‘s final season. Because Good Luck Charlie is coming to a close, the characters are only expected to appear in this one episode.
In the storyline, parents Amy and Bob Duncan (Leigh-Allyn Baker and Eric Allan Kramer) set up a playdate for preschooler Charlie (Mia Talerico) and one of her new friends. When the kid arrives, the Duncans learn that Charlie’s pal has two moms.
Nothing is sacred when Disney goes deviant.
Your omniscient entertainment industry overlords have rated Good Luck Charlie “TV-G”, suitable for all audiences and age groups. Homosexuality is good clean family fun!
Good Luck Parents.
He sent his ambassador to their pope with a message: Submit to the Muslim Brotherhood, and be silent about it.
The U.S. ambassador to Egypt is also trying to prevent Egyptians from protesting – including the Copts. The June 18th edition of Sadi al-Balad reports that lawyer Ramses Naggar, the Coptic Church’s legal counsel, said that during Patterson’s June 17 meeting with Pope Tawadros, she “asked him to urge the Copts not to participate” in the demonstrations against Morsi and the Brotherhood.
The Pope politely informed her that his spiritual authority over the Copts does not extend to political matters.
You’ll note that Caliph Barack The First never sent anyone to the Muslims to tell them to stop murdering Christians.
What’s worse is that the human rights abuses Egypt’s Coptic Christians have been suffering under Muslim Brotherhood rule are significantly worse than the human rights abuses that the average Egyptian suffered under Mubarak – making the Copts’ right to protest even more legitimate, and, if anything, more worthy of U.S support.
Among other things, under Morsi’s rule, the persecution of Copts has practically been legalized, as unprecedented numbers of Christians – men, women, and children – have been arrested, often receiving more than double the maximum prison sentence, under the accusation that they “blasphemed” Islam and/or its prophet. It was also under Morsi’s reign that another unprecedented scandal occurred: the St. Mark Cathedral – holiest site of Coptic Christianity and headquarters to the Pope Tawadros himself – was besieged in broad daylight by Islamic rioters. When security came, they too joined in the attack on the cathedral. And the targeting of Christian children – for abduction, ransom, rape, and/or forced conversion – has also reached unprecedented levels under Morsi. (For more on the plight of the Copts under Morsi’s rule, see my new book Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians.)
That’s the Obama Doctrine — Islam Reigns Supreme. Christians, go to the back of the bus. And prepare to be thrown under it.
Because it might hurt their chances of keeping the state legislature in November.
A bill to allow students living in the country illegally to pay in-state tuition at the state’s public colleges and universities has stalled amid political concerns and technical issues.
The Tuition Equality Act (A4225) was initially included on the list of bills to be voted on by the full Assembly today, after it was approved last week by the budget committee. But on Friday afternoon, it was quietly removed from the agenda.
Assemblyman Gordon Johnson (D-Bergen), the bill’s sponsor, said that was partly because of Democratic members’ concerns about the legislation.
“Sometimes politics overtakes what our Democratic values are – that’s just the way it is,” Johnson said. “I’m a little upset about it but I understand the global picture. If holding off on this bill will better the chances of my colleagues getting back their seats in the Senate and Assembly, I understand that.”
But don’t worry La Raza, they have every intention of ramming this shit sandwich through during the year-end lame-duck session.
Johnson said he will try again to get it through the Legislature in the fall, possibly after the November election.
“Now we’re going to try to get it done when we come back, I guess in lame duck,” he said.
Principles are fungible, temporarily anyway.
