Senator claims GOP follows Beck and Limbaugh, not science, on climate By Ben Geman – 06/17/10 01:57 PM ET Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said Thursday that strong global warming legislation lacks 60 votes and claimed Republicans are paying attention to conservative media pundits rather than climate science. “It is absolutely incredible and very, very sad — and I say this not from a political point of view — that a lot of very bright Republicans no longer pay attention to science and are much more interested in the rhetoric of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck,” he said.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse – unless you watch “Glenn Beck” every day – a bill is making its way through Congress that would give the President of the United States the authority to seize control of the world wide web in response to a “national cyber emergency.” It would also establish new federal bureaucracies with new powers to regulate the Internet.
The bill, entitled ‘‘Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act of 2010,’’ is a pet project of Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, with very strong support from Senator Jay Rockefeller, a West Virginia Democrat and chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee.
Who gets to declare a national cyber emergency under this bill?
The President may issue a declaration of a national cyber emergency to covered critical infrastructure (Section 249 (a)(1))
Who gets to decide what constitutes “covered critical infrastructure?” It is defined as including any component of the “national information infrastructure,” which essentially means all portions of the Internet not already owned or licensed by the federal government, that appears on the prioritized critical infrastructure list established by the Secretary of Homeland Security. (Sections 3 and 241)

The Secret CIA History of Barack Hussein Obama
The Reagan Bush administrations and the Bush 43 administration all know this about Barack Obama as a CIA operative, and his help to win the war there for the Taliban in Afghanistan during the Russian invasion.
They just did not expect Barack Obama to win the Iowa Caucus.
When he won that, there was no way they could assassinate him, remove him from the scene.

Joe Barton, R-Texas called the money a “shakedown” of the company and apologized for the president’s action. Barton, the ranking Republican on the House Energy and Commerce committee, told BP CEO Tony Hayward Thursday morning that he was sorry about what the president had done.

Is the Oil Spill an Act of War?
By Jim O’Neill Wednesday, June 16, 2010
“You can’t get Americans to agree on anything. …He [Obama] just needs to drag them to it. Like I just said, they’re stupid. Just drag them to this. …Suck on it, America, if you don’t like it.”—Bill Maher HBO “entertainer” (Link)
“Conservatives think of war as a metaphor when applied to politics. For radicals, the war is real.” —David Horowitz (Link)
The President shall direct all Federal, State, and private actions to remove a discharge or mitigate or prevent the threat of a discharge from onshore or offshore facilities which is determined to be a substantial threat to the public health or welfare of the United States.—Clean Water Act 311 (c) (2) (Link)
Doesn’t the above quote from the Clean Water Act say that “The President shall direct…the cleanup?” So why is “Pass the Buck” Obama passing the… never mind, I answered my own question.
Still and all, why the heck is BP in charge of the oil spill—and don’t tell me because the Obama Administration and Congress are worried about the cost. Heck, they’ve been spending money like it’s going out of style since Obama took office. A billion here, a trillion there—it’s never been a problem for them to spend money before. Our money. (Link)
It makes you wonder.
But that’s not what this article’s about, I’m mainly concerned with whether the oil spill was caused intentionally, or not, and if it was, would that constitute an act of war against the United States?
You would think that our government (which supposedly protects us from such stuff) would be showing a tad more interest in getting to the bottom of things.(Link)
You would think that our military, which used to swear an oath the protect America from all enemies, “foreign and domestic,” would be a bit more concerned. I guess they don’t take that oath anymore. (Link)
How did the oil spill start? The mundane, if unlikely answer, is greed and human stupidity caused it. I say “unlikely” for two reasons: The number of “fail-safe” protocols, techniques, and equipment that all failed at the same time, and 2) the all-too-convenient timing of the “accident.” (Link)
Before the Deepwater Horizon fiasco, the Lieberman-Kerry “Cap-and-Trade” bill was stalled in Congress. With the loss of trillions of dollars at stake, with the likely collapse of the CCX (Chicago Climate eXchange), and the “redistribution of wealth” scenario coming apart, what to do, what to do? (Link)
Enter the old Far Left hoary saw, “When all else fails, force it!”—jam it down America’s throat, ala Bill Maher’s suggestion.
There are a lot of “heavy hitters” surrounding the CCX—Goldman Sachs, Al Gore, BP, George Soros, to name just a few. And there are a number of possible culprits directly responsible for the oil spill: BP, Halliburton, Cameron, Boots and Coots, Transocean…. (Link)
