Uprising: Indiana Governor Won’t Comply With EPA

453

Indiana Governor Mike Pence (R) is certainly no stranger to controversy. Pence made national headlines earlier this year as he battled the LGBT agenda and fought to protect Indiana’s right to religious freedom. Now he’s at it again, insisting that unless there are big changes to the EPA’s proposed Clean Power Plan, his state will not be participating. He wrote a bold letter to President Obama informing the administration of his stance against the environmental regulations.

“If your administration proceeds to finalize the Clean Power Plan, and the final rule has not demonstrably and significantly improved from the proposed rule, Indiana will not comply. Our state will also reserve the right to use any legal means available to block the rule from being implemented,” Pence wrote.

As written, Pence says, the Clean Power Plan would only serve to make electricity more expensive and less reliable in the state of Indiana. Further, it would have a negative effect on statewide employment, endangering more than 26,000 Indiana citizens employed by the coal industry.

Indiana is only the latest state to take exception to the proposed regulations. 17 state attorneys have filed lawsuits against the administration in an effort to retain local control over the energy sector. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has even advised states to do exactly what Pence is doing and ignore the EPA’s rule. That would likely lead to federal enforcement, giving states the standing to sue. In April, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin issued an executive order to prohibit her state from developing carbon-emission reduction plans.

If the EPA meets their own expectations, we should see the final rule as early as August. If it remains intact, it would aim to reduce carbon emissions in the U.S. by 30% by 2030. According to the EPA, this can be achieved by improving existing power plants, increasing renewable energy production, and increasing the generation of clean energy. According to critics, it will stifle the economy, kill jobs, and have a negligible impact on environmental protection.

State leaders aren’t the only ones fighting back. A study commissioned by the National Black Chamber of Commerce concluded that the CPP would increase black poverty by 23%, and cause the loss of 7 million jobs for black Americans by the year 2035. The economic impact on Hispanics would be even more severe.

Of course, that’s all part of the plan. Democrats don’t stay in power by lifting minorities out of poverty; they stay in power by keeping them dependent on the federal government. And considering the fact that the CPP’s environmental impact will barely amount to a drop in the bucket, we can safely surmise that this impact is central to the regulations.

“Burning the Constitution of the United States,” said Harvard Professor Laurence Tribe, “cannot be part of our national energy policy.”

But in the age of Obama, it’s part of every national policy.

    I would have less concern about states controlling their own energy if they could keep their pollution in their state as well. The problem is, they pollute, and it ends up in the air I breath.

    1. Michael Dennewitz says

      The country’s going to hell and you’re worried about “AIR?” HA!

    2. disqus_C6fGXmCFNc says

      lu you are an idiot!!

      1. Michael Dennewitz says

        AMEN TO THAT!! LOL

    3. Combatvet52 says

      Are you for real……….

    4. David C Kelder says

      LUEngineer Hint! Don’t inhale.

      1. pineapple says

        Actually, don’t exhale, because you will be exhaling carbon dioxide.

        1. David C Kelder says

          LUE was complaining about the air he was breathing. “it ends up in the air I breath.”: So not breathing in would do the trick But either way works for me.

    5. RMCSRET says

      Hey LUEngineer I think what you ought to do is look at the Air Pollution about thirty years ago and
      look at it now. It is now cleaner now than it ever has been. Oh yea it has been estimated that the
      CO2 levels where higher millions of years ago than they are now. So pray tell other than the water
      quality from CLEAN WATER ACT what has the EPA DONE again except cause the price of
      pretty much everything to go up including Healthcare.

      1. Turn9 says

        Exactly – the air is so much cleaner now than it used to be – any additonal gains will be miniscule and very costly to capture. The EPA is busy writing regulations that will close down the Coal industry and put millions more out of work – and make them dependent on the govt.

        1. RMCSRET says

          Turn9 much like we have already seen since the forced use of Ethanol in our
          gas tanks. Food prices Higher and mileage down and repair to autos and power
          tool up. No benefit what so ever.

          1. ecogal says

            and it sucks for carbon dioxide emissions too – that is – the way the corn is grown with no margins anymore – huge loss of carbon into the AIR due to plowing methods, loss of topsoil, destruction of edges where bees and butterflies used to forage and glyphosate on everything – more CO2 has been released from big ag farming methods than all the cars and factories.

          2. festmatt5440 says

            ” Loss of carbon into the air due to plowing methods ? .Loss of topsoil ” . ?

            Farmers quit plowing ‘ many years ago , so there is no loss of air ” ;due to plowing methods .
            There is , more topsoil ‘ being saved ‘ , because there is no ( plowing )

    6. Francisco Machado says

      The conflict with the EPA is over carbon emissions – carbon dioxide, which they have decided is a hazardous pollutant. Aside from the AGW cabal which also believes the world has already been devastated by Global Warming and whose predictions have been universally wrong for forty years, no one else considers carbon dioxide a pollutant. If you worry about the trace amount of that in the air you breath, don’t even think about the amount of nitrogen you’re inhaling. Eighty percent of that air is incapable of sustaining life.

    7. mac12sam12 says

      Hold your breathe.

    8. ecogal says

      yeah, except pollution from China comes over here too – and their factories pollute 3X what US factories pollute (per info of various sources), so we would be better off making stuff here and polluting 1/3 as much as what China does.

    9. pineapple says

      From one engineer to another:

      GREENHOUSE GASES

      It’s astounding to note that, of the gases on our
      atmosphere, the amount of carbon dioxide is almost imperceptible. By
      percentage, the gases are ordered as follows:

      Nitrogen 78.1%

      Oxygen 20.9%

      Water vapor 0.40%

      Argon 0.90%

      Carbon dioxide 0.038%

      Neon 0.002%

      Helium 0.005%

      Methane 0.002%

      Krypton 0.001%

      Hydrogen 0.0005%

      Nitrous oxide 0.0003%

      Ozone 0.000004%

      Carbon monoxide trace

      Carbon dioxide only accounts
      for a scant 38 thousandths of a percent of our planet’s atmosphere. It is known
      as a variable gas because, like water vapor, is has historically fluctuated. And what percentage of the miniscule amount of
      CO2 is produced by the activities of man, including the utilization of fossil
      fuels? According to a thorough analysis by the Carbon dioxide Information Analysis
      Center, a research wing
      of the U.S. Department of Energy, it is only 3.207 percent.(Stated another way, man-made carbon dioxide
      constitutes only .00126 % of the earth’s atmosphere.) All of this hoopla over an atmospheric component so
      minute, it is difficult to comprehend.

      Allow me to repeat this
      critical fact;

      Carbon dioxide comprises 38/1000ths of the earth’s
      atmosphere, and of that amount, a mere 3 percent is

      generated by mankind.

      Furthermore, nitrous oxide is 310 times more capable
      of retaining the sun’s heat than carbon dioxide.

      However, nitrous oxide is not vilified by global
      warming alarmists as is carbon dioxide. The reason for this is that nitrous
      oxide can not be attributed to fossil fuels and is also more difficult to
      measure and tax like carbon dioxide.

      GLOBAL COOLING

      According to the U.S.
      Historical Climatology Network archives, the temperature has warmed only 0.5
      degrees F since the mid-1980s.

      Tossing out corrupted USHCN
      data, there has actually been a net-cooling
      since 1930—during the same period in which atmospheric CO2 has noticeably
      increased.

      Since 2007, global temperatures
      are engaged in a significant downward spiral, with government data illustrating
      a bit more than a one degree F (0.65 degrees C) drop in temperature between 2007 and 2008 alone.

      MEDIEVEL WARMING PERIOD

      A warming period occurred during the middle ages,
      during which ice melted in Greenland to such an extent that Norse settlers were
      able to establish farms in Greenland. This
      Medieval warming period was followed by a mini-ice age, during which rivers in Europe
      froze over. These events occurred before the advent of fossil fuels, and thus
      can not be blamed on the use of fossil fuels.

      Global warming alarmists published the infamous
      “hockey stick” graph which purportedly “proved” man-made global warming,
      beginning with the use of fossil fuels. This graph was manipulated to exclude
      the medieval warming period and the subsequent mini ice- age.

    Iran will be the one to “take us out” and the little halfbreed monkey will make damned sure he’s on the opposite side of the globe when it happens. What the hell is happening to this once great country???

    1. Combatvet52 says

      Barry is F–king it all up.

      1. Gerry Costa says

        Right along with both parties.

        1. Turn9 says

          Exactly! and everyone opposed to this kind of jack-booted thuggery needs to support the TEA Party – they may be the answer we have looked for. Need a reason to support the TEA Party? The fact the MSN media and obama are so vocally against it should give some satisfaction. Support TEA and kick sand in obama’s face!

          1. Michael Dennewitz says

            I remember saying years and years ago, get wall street out of politics and you’ll have cured most of the problems. But now? Now you have this little, big eared, halfbreed monkey in charge and he’s a devout mooselum. George Soros is his boss and calls each and every shot. This little lying bastard has no education. He doesn’t even have “papers!” Added to that, he’s a little faggot and moosechelle is its husband. How in the hell did we ever allow this to happen???

          2. Henry Servatt says

            Hmmmm… “jack-booted thuggery”… one doesn’t see that phrase enough these days. I recall way back when it came into common conversational currency, and it needs a reboot today. Thanks.

        2. Sue says

          So true because the so-called government is owned – bought and paid for – by the banks. Politicians are nothing more than greedy lawyers who end up becoming millionaires. Money is their main goal & not protecting the rights of their constituents. Simply put, we do not have a government. We have CEO mafia bankers controlling the strings on the puppets – both parties – in D.C. They make the rules and laws and politicians are paid handsomely to agree with those rules and laws.

          1. Sue says

            …But the rules and laws they make against the sheeple don’t apply to them.

          2. Robert Young says

            If it is important enough to make it a law, then it should apply to everyone in our Country.

    2. OSAMA OBAMA says

      It started in the sixties when the univershitties were infiltrated and WE started to follow without thinking…“The education of all children, from the moment that they can get
      along without a mother’s care, shall be in state institutions.”

      1. festmatt5440 says

        You are absolutely ‘ correct .

    3. Bob Wexler says

      No, it will be us who takes us out. With leaders like Barry it won’t be much longer, especially if one of the “it’s my turn now ” duo winds up in the White House next.

      1. Michael Dennewitz says

        God how I hope you’re right Bob.. It can only go from bad to worse. I had high hopes that an expert sniper would take his ass out. But just before he drew his last breath, make sure he realizes he’s being hung upside down and pig’s blood was being dumped on him. They saw to it that Saddam was hung, and we really had no business there. THAT’S what got this whole mess started. And the idiot only had biological warfare THAT WE GAVE HIM!! So many places we’ve stuck our noses, when we should have seen this coming!

  4. Sylvester Jones says

    Great and America should stand up against abortion, gay marriages and corrupt government.

    1. MARYSWEET says

      Yes, America should stand up against obama and his executive orders, his bringing in all these illegal immigrants (as well as muslim refugees from Somalia and Syria), abortion, same sex marriages and all his illegal actions. He is our worst enemy and we can’t let him get away with it or we will lose our country completely and we will end up with a marxist muslim dictator.

      1. volksnut says

        we already have one –

            I’ll match my education to yours any day, troll.

          6. AKLady2015 says

            Really?

            Islam is the world’s second largest religion in the world.

            Muslims worship the God of Abraham, just as you do.

            The Middle East represents only a small portion of the world’s Muslims.

            Not all Muslims are terrorists.
            Not all terrorists are Muslim.

            The Muslim faith is not America’s enemy — quite the opposite. The first casualty in the American Revolution was a Muslim.

            Why do you hate innocent people?

          7. Marty says

            Islam is not a religion by any definition. It is a cult, plain and simple.

          8. AKLady says

            Marty, why do you find it acceptable to insult the second largest religion in the world?

            Why do you find it acceptable to insult millions of people for the bad deeds of a few?

          9. Marty says

            A few? It is said there are 1.3 BILLION followers on the cult of Islam. It is also said no more then 10% are radical. The other 90%, the vast majority refuse to condemn the radicals. That’s pretty radical in my mind. I do not condemn any true religion.

          10. AKLady says

            No, Marty, I see no such thing.
            However, I do see individuals who claim to be Christians, busy casting the first stone and lying.

            My guess is you have never known anyone with a number tattooed on their arm.

            Prosecution based on religion/race is an abomination.

            It was tried — 8 million innocents died. I wonder, how close is NATO to reaching that record?

          11. Marty says

            That shows how really little you know. Dozens of my ancestors died in German concentration camps. I am not a Christian, although I am very pro Christian. I was born a Jew. I’m not religious, but am an ardent believer in God. As usual, you are, as always, wrong. But I forgot, you think you are always right?

          12. AKLady says

            Then you defile their memory by preaching hate based on religion?
            Islam worships the God of Abraham —

            Compared with the world, the Middle East is only a drop in the bucket.

            Not all Muslims are terrorists.
            Not all terrorists are Muslim.

            Religious hate is wrong — period. And on that fact, I am always right — the majority of the world hold that opinion.

          13. Marty says

            I repeat…Islam is not a true religion. It is a cult. No religion either commits or supports the committing of the atrocious crimes committed by IS and can call themselves a religion.

          14. AKLady says

            Well, exactly the same atrocities are taking place in the Central African Republic. The perpetrators of those crimes are Christians.

            Murder is also taking place in Oklahoma — Sikhs have been murdered — by Christians.

            Then there is the murders in South Carolina.

            Then there are the Crusades — all 12 of them. It has taken hundreds of years, but apparently Islam has decided it is time to even the score.

            Then there are the current religious murders in India.

            Then there is WW II death camps — “True” Christians helped the Germans round up the “Christ Killers”.

            I could fill a few pages with “true religions”.

          15. Marty says

            You have told so many “untruths”, I don’t believe a word you say. As far as the Crusades are concerned, all reasonable people, which I don’t consider you as a part of, know the Christians were simply defending themselves from islam. If you are defending the actions of IS, which you absolutely are, then your brain is so far gone, I have nothing left to say to such a low life as you are. Please don’t expect any further replys. Go kiss the ass of your friends who kill, torture and rape little children and try to justify their actions to someone else. Good riddance.

          16. AKLady says

            You need to go back and read the history books again. There were more than seven of them.

            Defending? The crusaders often pillaged the countries through which they travelled.

            The Crusades prompted the Rhineland massacres and the murder of thousands of Jews.

            Not Christians, per se — Catholics. Pope Urban II wanted Jerusalem, and hence the fighting began. More than 12 wars, spanning 200 years.

            Several hundred thousand Roman Catholics became crusaders by taking a public vow and receiving plenary indulgences from the church.

          17. worn out 123 says

            Glad you asked. Most of the carnage around the globe is perpetrated in the name of Allah today. Let me break it down for you so as to make it easy enough that even you can understand it. Although Islam has as it’s mainstream thinking peacefulness there is a cancer in this “religion”, give it whatever name you wish, it is born of the religion of Islam and people around the planet are dying because of this Islamic borrn cancer. They claim Islam as their basis for horrible atrocities, shooting young girls in the head at point blank range, forced marriages, murder by stoning of women, rape of women, beheading and burning alive their prisoners and even civilians, often for no crime whatsoever beyond not being Muslim. Their is a very serious problem civilization must face while you nut cases rant and rave “Islamophobia!”

          18. AKLady2015 says

            I agree, the majority of the evil in this world is perpetrated in the name of God.
            The majority of evil in this world has always been committed in the name of religion.

            There is a cancer which comes from religion. Christians have supported the most horrendus of the raligious violence —

          20. AKLady2015 says

            “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve.” 1 Timothy 2:10-13.

            Obama attended a MUSLIM school in Indonesia. He signed another name he was useing at the time (even though he swore later he never used any aliases). As liars go, B.H.O is a living legend.

            Can you actually claim Muslims have a religion of peace? You chould be as ashamed as your anti-American, anti liberty W.H. Messiah.

          35. AKLady says

            Baby boy, wake up and educate yourself.
            If you count Catholic and Protestant as a Christian whole, then Islam is the second largest religion in the world.
            You might want to be less liberal with those insults.
            You might find yourself living in a Muslim country.

Does this sound like something we should continue to ignore with P.C. statements from elected officials when this is THE MAIN PURPOSE of government, to protect the citizenry? Really! The stated purpose in the Quran is to overtake, by ANY means {and the details are spelled out distinctly}, all non-believers just as ISIS is doing because they are in greater numbers there than they are in the U.S. (for the time being). America is in Ji Hadi one and entering Ji Hadi two in which, still whining about their being persecuted, institute terrorist attacks in small numbers, occasionally, at first. Do the Twin Towers ring a bell?
            Ever ask yourself why America allows Muslims to travel to the Middle East and RETURN? Someone just returned from a trip to Jordan recently. Did you hear about that? With an open border millions more will enter AT WILL. And government does nothing more than refer to them all as “immigrants”??????

            You keep saying that you do not care if he is Muslim, but you insist he is a Christian, and refuse to let it go.

            Obama practices ramadan, allows unlimited Muslims in as refugees, but methodically prevents Christians or other oppressed minorities that are killed by Muslims from moving here, refuses to call Islamic Jihad in the US what is is, but labels it work place violence or domestic terror,

            Freedom of religion does not mean that I have to ignore reality, and what the man says or does. His Catholic school in Indonesia listed him as Muslim, and he was schooled in it. he speaks perfect Arabic, something most Muslims do not, and he identifies with and loves islam. Deal with it.

            Muslims fought in the Revolutionary War. The first casualty in that war was Muslim.

          103. Jonathan Brooks says

            The point is that Obama ben Sociopath, tells Christian audiences he is a Christian, but overseas, in Arabic, tells Muslims he is Muslim.

            Obama has made it clear that he will bring unlimited Muslim “refugees here, but will not bring Chraistian Jewish or other refuges, even if they face death.

            Really! Is that always the case, just the vast majority of the time, or mostly true?
            My sister has as much education as yourself. I have more $$. Guess I’m a real exception to YOUR rule.
            Maybe your right. After all, Lois Lerner has big bucks since she sold American ideals out to the communists lurking in the democrat party. “Not a smidgen of corruption in the IRS.” . . . .B.H.O. “I guess that depends on what the meaning of the word “is” is.” L A T E R , “In fact, I did . . . .” . . . . Slick Willey.

          120. AKLady2015 says

            You really like those rumors and lies.
            You have no idea, whatsoever, as to the extent of my education. Let alone, what I have studied.
            On the other hand, you make assumption after assumption after assumption — a very ignorant habit.

          121. worn out 123 says

            I make no assumption other than that which I stated. Not you. I know of only a handful of people with any more education than my sister. Drag out you PHD. Its no higher than hers.

          122. AKLady says

            Baby boy, the subject of study is far more important than the level attained. A Ph.D. in Modern Art is essentially worthless.

          123. worn out 123 says

            It’s not in Modern Arts. Try again.

          124. AKLady says

            Not interested.
            You missed the point.

          125. worn out 123 says

            If u had a point. Lady, if you ever had an original thought it would have died of loneliness long ago.

          126. AKLady says

            Go play your games with someone else.
            You make no sense whatsoever.

          127. worn out 123 says

            Tjhe truth hurts. Deny. Deny. Deny. That’s the Clinton method.

          128. AKLady says

            Insult, insult, lie, lie — it is the right-wing method.

          129. Sylvester Jones says

            Obama is a non believing christian, in other words a fake.

          130. AKLady2015 says

            FREEDOM OF RELIGION

            FREEDOM FROM RELIGION

          131. AKLady says

            So what?
            Freedom of religion includes freedom from religion.
            Show me where in the Constitution it states a President must have any religion?

          132. Sylvester Jones says

            What an asinine statement, freedom from religion? we all have freedom to honor God or not, heaven or hell, apparently you chose poorly.

          133. worn out 123 says

            NOT!

          134. AKLady2015 says

            Not what?
            Provide verifiable fact, with citations.

            A Christian? You gotta be kidding. Come on think for your self. The criminal fraud is Muslim. To that there is no doubt…,..

          136. AKLady2015 says

            Crime?
            Name one.
            I say you are a liar — an ignorant liar.
            Get this straight in your head:
            FREEDOM OF RELIGION IS THE LAW IN AMERICA.
            I don’t give a tinker’s damn what his religion is. It is a non-issue.
            Why do you think calling someone a Muslim is an insult?

        2. AKLady2015 says

          They deleted you post about the school.
          It was based on a lie.
          The school Obama attended was Catholic.

          1. volksnut says

            that It was – a Catholic school –

        3. AKLady says

          The Muslin Adhan (call to prayer) is beautiful.

          God is the Greatest (Recited four times)
          I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except God(Recited twice)
          I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of God. (Recited twice)
          Come to Prayer (Recited twice)
          Come to success. (Recited twice)
          God is the Greatest. (Recited twice)
          There is none worthy of worship except God.

          Arabic Christians also refer to God as Allah. It is the Arabic word for the One True God — the God of Abraham — worshipped by Jews, Muslims and Christians. Islam is an Abrahamic religions, as are Judaism and Christianity

          The timing of the call is four times a day, very similar to the Catholic Liturgy of Hours.

          1. volksnut says

            I wonder if all of the psychopaths running rampant and murdering innocent people pretty much worldwide these days stop in the middle of their heinous crimes to pray to allah –

          2. AKLady says

            Pray to God.
            The same God you pray to.
            The God of the Old Testament.

      2. Kathleen LaBonte says

        Obama and executive ACTIONS. There is a difference between ORDERS and ACTIONS. Actions are a wish list and have no significance except the fact that our country doesn’t know the difference, or pretends not to know the difference, so he can get away with his dangerous changes in our Constitution. An Order is registered in the Federal Registry, and are usually “housekeeping” changes to laws enacted by the Congress.

        1. AKLady says

          Read the Constitution.
          It clearly states what Presidential Authority encompasses.
          Playing the synonym game is for Fox pundits — the results are the same, as are the actions.

          1. Kathleen LaBonte says

            AKLady – I repeat, you are a troll.

          2. Marty says

            A musleem troll at that.

          3. AKLady says

            You apparently can’t tell the difference between the three Abrahamic religions. One is Jewish, one is Muslim and one is Christian. They all began in the same geographic area. They all worship the God of Abraham. You do know who Abraham is, or does that need to be spelled out for you as well?

          4. Marty says

            Musleems worship the God of Abraham? Are you out of your rabid ass mind? Christian Muslims do, but they are a minority in that religion. The more then a billion other musleems worship allah, and I’ve never heard any lunatic before say allah was the God of Abraham?

          5. AKLady2015 says

            ALLAH IS THE ARABIC WORD FOR GOD.

            Words for God.

            Jamaica= Jah
            Spanish= Dios
            Arabic= Allah
            Farsi= Khoda
            Romanian = Dumnezeu
            French = Dieu
            Greek = Theos
            Italian = Dio
            Portugese = Deus
            German = Gott
            Porguguese = Deush
            Lithuanian – Dievas
            Russian – bog
            Finnish – Jumala
            Norwegian – Gud

            Maybe you should start a hate campaign based on Deush?

          6. Marty says

            A word for their god, not the Christian or Jewish God. You are sick. You keep telling folks to get educated. I’ve finally figured you out. You are a low life attorney who thinks you know it all. Probably one of the many lying defense attorney’s who lie almost every time they plead ‘not guilty’ for clients they know are guilty. There are a lot of attorney’s out there who know much about some of the laws. Your type only think they do.

          7. AKLady2015 says

            Christian Muslims?

            Islam is a religion. It’s followers are Muslim.

            Baby boy, a person cannot be both Christian and Muslim.

            Allah is not the name of a god.

            It is the Arabic word for the God of Abraham.

            The “One God” worshipped by every Abrahamic religion.

          8. Marty says

            Sorry, I meant to say Arab Christians.

          9. Marty says

            But Allah is who they worship, and who they follow. And who they kill and torture and rape under. And don’t tell me the vast majority of muslims are peace loving. Did you see those peace loving muslims dancing in the streets on 9-11-01? What is there, some 1.3 billion in the world? How many do you see telling the world Jihadists are terrible and wrong? Muslims cannot be true Americans. They don’t believe in our freedoms, our laws or our Constitution. Until obummer arrived on the scene, they had to swear allegiance to our country. Just within the last week, obummer stated he was eliminating this “swearing in” allegiance portion of the citizenship. The point is they can’t swear an allegiance to our country because they only have an allegiance to to islam and the two definitely don’t mix. For this reason, they don’t even belong in this country.

          10. AKLady2015 says

            Baby boy, there has always been a waiver for those with deeply held religious convictions. America has never denied citizenship to conscientious objectors. America has never required anyone to anyone to violate their religious beliefs.
            The words “may” and “based upon” fundamentally contradict the lie that the oath is being “changed” across the board for all applicants.
            You have been had, hook line and sinker.

          11. Marty says

            They don’t have religious beliefs. They believe in their cult.

          12. AKLady says

            All religions are cults.
            All religions are bullies – my god is better than your god, my belief is better than your …

          13. Marty says

            You believe you know so much, when in fact you truly know so little. You are in dire need of a true education.

          14. AKLady says

            I make no apology for looking up the facts.

            Islam is not the only religion which bears upon the Naturalization Oath.

            Do you really support lies being published here?
            Logic says it has no benefit for you, or anyone else.

          15. Marty says

            The only lies being published here are yours. But alas, I forget, you are the over educated (public schools) and think you know everything. You wouldn’t know a fact if it hit you square between the ears. Which makes perfect sense, as you have nothing between the ears.

          16. ssol4569 says

            That’s an insult to trolls for sure!

          17. AKLady says

            Kathleen, I repeat, get an education you will be far happier.

          18. Kathleen LaBonte says

            OK AKLady – Not!

          19. Bruce J Trivellini says

            Show the Federal Register where obama’s EXECUTIVE ORDERS have been recorded http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/executive-orders/disposition.html

          20. Bruce J Trivellini says

            Executive Order 13680
            Federal Register page and date: 79 FR 63287, October 23, 2014

            Executive Order 13681
            Federal Register page and date: 79 FR 63491, October 23, 2014

            Executive Order 13683
            Federal Register page and date: 79 FR 75041, December 16, 2014

            SO WHERE IS obama’s executive order on immigration…certainly not in the Federal Registry? No word games being played here just following the Constitutions requirement for archiving and recording of such orders

          21. AKLady says

            Strange, facts say he has issued the least EOs since Eisenhower was in office.

          22. Marty says

            An executive order is an order to folks within the dictators admin. It cannot legally order any citizen to do anything. The dictator cannot make law, only Congress makes law. Since obummer doesn’t understand this (and he is suppose to be a Constitutional Attorney), It will be up to the people to splain it.

          23. AKLady says

            You do not have the slightest idea about which you speak.

            “..he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.”

            Have illegal immigrants broken a federal law? What do you think the term “pardon” means?

            Get back to me when you figure it out.

          24. Marty says

            Where did you get the idea a pardon was an executive order? Under that definition every thing the dictator does while in office would be an executive action.

          25. AKLady2015 says

            Let’s see, the President is the Chief Executive.

            The power of the Executive Order allows the president to create laws and decide how existing laws should be administered.
            Since a U.S. President is not a judge, he has only one way to use the power granted by the Constitution — executive order.
            Don’t schools teach Civics and American Goveenment any more?

          26. Marty says

            You obviously went to public school. We have the Judicial Branch, the Legislative Branch and the Executive Branch. Only the Legislative Branch can write laws, period. Yes obummer thinks he can make law, but he is wrong, as usual. And no, when Congress writes a law, the president may not decide how the law should be administered. It should be administered exactly how Congress intended. It is not obummers job interpret Congresses intention. He either signs the bill as is, or he vetos it. He can send it back for clarification, which almost never happens. If he signs the bill, that is now the law and he doesn’t have the right to administer it as he sees fit. Only a dictator can do such things. Oh yea, I forgot, he thinks he is.

          27. AKLady2015 says

            Marty, Marty, Marty … you missed something in Civics Class.

            Executive Orders do not require Congressional approval to take effect, but they have the same legal weight as laws passed by Congress. Suggest you review Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution.

            Executive Orders are controversial because they allow the President to make major decisions, even law, without the consent of Congress.

          28. Marty says

            Ok miss civics, you tell me where in the Constitution that authorizes E.O’s. Article II, section 1, clause 1 only states the president is the exectutive. No where does it even mention E’O’s. And yes, Congress does have the power to stop E.O.’s and federal judges have the power to strike down E’O’s. E.O.’s are only to be used to direct officers and agencies of the executive branch. They may never be used to direct citizens. That’s where our country went to Hell. The federal gov’t passes laws they were never legally allowed by the Constitution. Any law not specifically designated by the Constitution which is passed by the feds is an illegal law.

          29. AKLady2015 says

            Marty, Marty, Marty … Go to law school. Learn some law.

          30. AKLady2015 says

            Wrong.

            Only Congress has the power to override a Presidential Executive Order.

            Federal judges have no authority over the exercise of Presidential authority — which is granted by the U.S. Constitution.

            Your idea of the “Constitution” and law is invalid — exactly reversed.

          31. AKLady2015 says

            Marty, when did the U.S. Military become part of the Executive Branch?

            Under the Constitution, the U.S. President is the Commander in Chief of the U.S. Military — all of it.

          32. Marty says

            Who said anything about congress being over the military?

          33. fossie1 says

            show me where he has the power to make EXECUTIVE ORDERS

      3. Michael Dennewitz says

        We have enuf of the bastards in Orlando, that’s for certain…that and a shitload of Haitians. Everywhere I go now, all I hear is Creole!!!

        1. MARYSWEET says

          obama has imported so many illegal immigrants from all over the world it is hard to find a legal American among all of them. He is changing the population of this country to muslims from Somalia and Syria as well as all the illegals from south and central america that he has bussed in. I know how you feel as our country is being stolen right from under us.

          1. AKLady says

            Immigrants are not “bussed” in.
            No “illegals” have been imported.

            Someone is lying to you.
            You should be outraged.
            Why aren’t you outraged about those lies?

            On the other hand, we have accepted refugees from countries where they are being murdered. We let 8 million be murdered during WW II — genocide based on religion and race.

            This country was founded by individuals who were fleeing religious persecution. They were Puritans. Maybe you should look at history?

            Are you of the same character as those who lived in 1930s and 1940s Germany?
            Is that what you want American to become?

          2. keith says

            You are so damned full of osamas bs that you cannot see that we are about to completely fill the communists manifesto in this country. WHERE WILL THE AMERICANS FLEE TO WHEN WE ARE BEING PERSECUTED FOR CHRISTIAN BELEIFS IN JESUS. WHEN THE BEHEADINGS START IN THIS COUNTRY MAYBE YOU WILL OPEN YOUR HATE FILLED EYES.

          3. AKLady2015 says

            The only hate here is yours.
            I suspect you also claim to be a Christian.

          4. ssol4569 says

            They’ve also been flown in, how does that grab ya!!

      4. Rattlerjake says

        States should do exactly the same thing that Norway did and make Islam illegal and run all of the muslimes out of their “state”.

        1. MARYSWEET says

          I couldn’t agree with you more but that will never happen as long as obama is around.

        2. AKLady2015 says

          Except that is not what Norway did.
          Why do you believe it is acceptable to lie?
          The deportees were criminals and illegal immigrants.
          But, this web site and its posters are not real big on truth.

      5. AKLady says

        America is a representative democracy.
        You elect your representative.
        Tell him about your concerns.
        The Founding Fathers provided Presidents with specific rights and powers.
        Those are Constitutional rights and powers.
        Just a reminder, the religion hate thing was tried in the 1930s and 1940s. It did not work out so well.

        1. Kathleen LaBonte says

          AKLAdy – you are so ignorant and a troll. America is Republic.

          1. Steve Crawford says

            No you are the ignorant one Kathleen. Do you have a full copy of the US Constitution, and do you understand it? Why is is alright for the WHITE presidents to issue executive order, but not the BLACK President. Your dementia has made you forget that McConnell & the speaker said that THEY WOULD NOT ALLOW ANY BILLS ON THE HOUSE FLOOR FROM THE WHITE HOUSE.

          2. Kathleen LaBonte says

            He is issuing Executive ACTIONS. Do your homework and read up on the differences between actions and orders.

          3. Bruce J Trivellini says

            http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/executive-orders/obama.html
            obama has issued plenty of executive orders just none on immigration..because there is no basis for an Executive Order. You have been suckered into believing that he has done something when in fact he hasn’t. In fact there has been no recent act of congress that has had an unintended consequence that an executive order would be warranted

          4. AKLady2015 says

            And you are so ignorant you can’t read.
            You must be a troll.
            I clearly stated that America is a Republic.
            Government of the people, for the people, by the people is defined as democracy.

        2. MARYSWEET says

          You are mistaken that America is a democracy. We are a REPUBLIC. And yes, the Founding Fathers set out specific powers for each branch of government but as you may have noticed obama doesn’t believe in our Constitution or our laws so he has been ignoring it and just doing what he wants to do. This, of course, is illegal but no one has stopped him so he continues his “transformation” of America to a third world banana republic with a dictator. This will also include communist government with a muslim conversion just as being done in the middle east and europe. I learned very well in high school how our country works. Maybe you might want to take your own advice and take a civics class. I believe you will be shocked that they are not teaching that anymore.

            WELL John dipshit, that is exactly what I said.
            LEARN HOW TO READ.

          3. AKLady2015 says

            JWdipshit — increase your reading comprehension.
            I clearly stated the U.S. was a Republic.
            However, government of the people, for the people, by the people constitutes a democratic form of government.
            Get an education.

          4. AKLady2015 says

            Dear not so sweet Mary — LEARN HOW TO READ.
            America is a Republic is exactly what I said.

          5. AKLady2015 says

            A democratic republic is a country that is both a republic and a democracy.

            It is one where ultimate authority and power is derived from the citizens, and the government itself is run through elected officials.

            Government of the people, for the people, by the people — or maybe it is your opinion that Abe Lincoln and Congress and the Constitution have it all wrong.

            Take a civics class.

        3. AKLady2015 says

          Correction: America is a republic which practices representative democracy.

        4. Terry Hamblin says

          The U.S. is a Republic with all that that entails, look it up! The President and the Executive branch are charged with defending our country and upholding the Laws of the land. This country was founded because of taxation without representation, much as what the EPA insists on doing. The power companies have been struggling to keep the grid afloat for thirty years since the U.N. conned 180 countries into a moratorium on nuclear energy. Stupid, stupid, stupid, so now the EPA wants to do in coal, knowing full well that windmills and solar energy are woefully inadequate.
          Required to learn? What are the illegals required to learn, how to hide?

        5. Marty says

          The founding fathers also gave us 3 distinct branches of government. The president may not right law, which obummer has done over and over since lying his way into office. The president may not change laws which have already been signed into law. This is why I call him a dictator, as only dictators do things like this.

        6. Marty says

          Your problem is you learned from public schools, which for the most part teach what they think history should be, not true history. And since 90% of the educators today are hard core liberal, we see what’s become of our education system. Don’t even try and preach the Constitution to me. You libs only use the Constitution when it suits your agenda. When it doesn’t, you toss it out. We have lost more and more rights under this piece of crap you love so much in the last 6.5 years, our Founding Fathers are turning over in their grave.

      6. AKLady2015 says

        Why do you believe it is acceptable to lie?

        The President has not exceeded his authority.

        Please learn the braches of your government, and how they work.

      7. AKLady says

        No one is bringing in illegal immigrants. Obama has acted to prevent innocent children from being sent to countries where they cannot even speak the language.

        Do you think children who were brought here by the parents, who have lived their entire lives as Americans, should be punished for their parent’s crime?

        More deportations have taken place under Obama than in any other time since WW II.

        Abortions have been legal sine 1973 — get an education.
        Equality is the law. The Supreme Court has enforced that law.

        I think you need to go back to school and learn why we have three separate parts of government. You might also want to study up on Freedom of Religion.

        1. MARYSWEET says

          AKLady – You need to get an education. I live near the border and I know what is going on. obama has bussed and flown in thousands of illegal immigrants. They were housing them just a few blocks from my house. I think these children were brought in here because obama has an illegal immigration plan. Once he gets the kids here then he can use the excuse that now the parents need to be brought here so the families aren’t separated.
          You know you are so brainwashed by obama that I’m not even going to try to talk with you because there is no way to reason with liberals. You think you know every thingthat is going on and you know nothing. You need to get an education on what is happening to our country before it’s too late. I would almost feel sorry for you except you have chosen to be ignorant on what obama the mulsim communist sociopath is planning.

          1. AKLady says

            PS. I have Cherokee ancestry.
            I think I like Obama and this Congress very much.
            If Obama, the liberal, communist, sociopath is going to give back that which was stolen from the First People, I think that is wonderful.

          2. MARYSWEET says

            You are as sick as obama.

          3. keith says

            There is not a snow balls chance in hell that he will give back anything to the first people. Even though they have lost more than any people in this country. osama gives not a thought or care about you or your people

          4. Marty says

            Libs think with their hearts, Therefore, their brains have died from lack of use. aklady definitely falls into that category.

          5. MARYSWEET says

            I didn’t know liberals had hearts. I believe they are programmed from birth like a computer. So if there is anyone who doesn’t have the same programming the libs have to change everyone to believe as they do. Sounds a lot like the muslims.

          6. Marty says

            So well stated.

  5. MuslimLuvChrist says

    The EPA is too corrupt to continue as is, just like the IRS, DEA, NSA, TSA, FDA, FCC, DOINJ, and the FED. The EPA has gone from a small and seemingly necessary regulatory agency to a behemoth which tramples small businesses without regard for economic realities. During the government shutdown, obama proved that over 90% of the EPA was “nonessential” by telling them NOT to report for work, if that is what you call what they do! This “nonessential” superfluous agency should be abolished, especially if it has no impact on the world’s pollution atrocities, which far exceed ours! The EPA has taken the power to arbitrate land disputes and environmental concerns from courts and private citizens and placed it into the hands of bureaucrats with no accountability.

    1. Skyhawk says

      Yet the EPA has done some miraculous things. Just think, by banning DDT they caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands people. Not a record but close to what has been the limit. And it didn’t affect their conscious one iota. With that record they are trying for more destruction.

      1. Turn9 says

        I think the number is in the millions and still counting. In Indonesia, Africa and Central America & other areas where mosquitoes transmit Malaria to people with limited medical access make the disease even more deadly. Considering the DDT ban went into effect over 40 years ago, the world-wide death toll is in the millions according to WHO.

      2. bill says

        yes Skyhawk that is correct but let’s not forget since they banned ddt we now have almost 50 more brown pelicans and 8 condors. woo hoo!

    2. Turn9 says

      along with those unnecessary agencies, we need to dismantle a number of cabinet departments like Education, Energy, agriculture and many others who do nothing but drive the debt up. and we need to eliminate all of those high paying czar positions obama has created – we don’t know what they do and they evidently don’t report to anyone.

      1. OSAMA OBAMA says

        We know what they do! They tell us how to live, eat, set our thermostats, force their vaccines upon us, think………….

      2. Maggiemae says

        I’m all for it. Now, how do we start the ball rolling. And while we’re at it….how about TERM LIMITS for everyonein Congress!!!! That’s the only way to get rid of the rot in DC. I’ve been saying that for the past 5 years…sure wish I knew how to start that ball rolling.

        1. Robert Young says

          How about term limits for all elected or appointed government officials, both Federal and State, including Judges.

          1. Maggiemae says

            Absolutely!!!!!!!! I’ve checked out the ‘how to’ some time back and I believe each State would have to ‘ratify’ the term limits and a number of states would have to do this before it would become a Federal law. Do you know any more than that? I seriously would like to start this rolling.

          2. Linda Shelton says

            Too many demo states like what is happening and would never go along with any change that would effect them.

          3. Maggiemae says

            I’m not too sure on that. I have friends that are Dems and they would also like to see term limits…there are Dems in both the Senate and House that are worthless for everyone.

          4. Nina says

            I think so also. What’s happening right now to our country is sheer bull crap!! I don’t care what party you belong to, if any, if you can’t see our beautiful America is being dismantled by some very evil forces then you are truly blinded. It’s very close to to late for ppl to wake up!!!

          5. AKLady2015 says

            It is just another show and tell for politicians.
            They brainwashed you really quick, didn’t they?

          6. Maggiemae says

            No, no, no…..no show and tell, no right wing propogranda….PERIOD! No brainwashing involved in all that is going on except for the liberal garbage being spewed at those that happen to love America that way it used to be….as short as 6 years ago. The handwriting is on the wall. ALL politicians are a POS…that’s a given. The hate mongering, the beating down of American people, anyone that doesn’t agree with total government control of everything is deemed worthless. Socialism NEVER works….you ALWAYS run out of other people’s money. Good current example….Greece. America is a short hop away from the same BS. It’s OK to slam a Christian but not OK to slam a gay person. I don’t care what religion someone is, I don’t care what color they are, I don’t care who or how they live. I’m not paying their way in life….unless you’re a welfare recipient and then my tax dollar does pay for your way of life. So, yes there is brainwashing…..but only by the liberals and all their outlets.

          7. 1Clara2 says

            I think it’s called The Convention of States, and the federal government has no power over them. I think someone has already started that ball rolling. They just need more people to become aware of this possibility and give it their fullest support.

          8. Maggiemae says

            Yes…it is called The Convention of States. Do you know who has ‘started that ball rolling”? Also, which state has started that.

          9. AKLady2015 says

            No state.
            It is part of the right-wing propaganda.

          10. 1Clara2 says

            I’m sorry, but I can’t remember who started it. However, I know it’s in the works.

          11. Maggiemae says

            Well, I’m happy that something on that order is in the works. Whoever or whichever state started something will come out to the public…..eventually.

          12. 1Clara2 says

            You might try googling Convention of States. It’s a not-very-well-known option provided by our Founding Fathers for circumstances such as the one we’re in presently.

          13. AKLady2015 says

            The Convention of States has no legal authority — none, whatsoever.
            It is just another show and tell for politicians.
            They brainwashed you really quick, didn’t they?

          14. Marty says

            Article V…”on application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments”… Your civics classes failed you.

          15. AKLady2015 says

            Ratification only applies to Constitutional amendments.

          16. Original Rebel says

            I will never understand why the Founders didn’t put that particular restriction on EVERY STINKIN’ PART OF THE “GUB’MINT”. Surely they had to at least THINK that unelected, appointed judges, etc., could run amok and create REAL problems for the people. Especially since that kind of power corrupts absolutely! Witness the latest supreme idiots’ rulings where they actually “WROTE LAWS” that were never in the Constitution to arrive at supporting obamalinsky’s healthcare and the gay “rights” fiasco!!!!

          17. Steve Crawford says

            DID YOU READ ROBERTS OPINION? He and FIVE other said that Congress should overturn ACA, and not SCOTUS. He said It was voted in and will have to be voted out, which I doubt. It has nothing to do with the US Constitution. THEY DID NOT WRITE LAWS, THEY GAVE AN OPINION. Take an evening course in US Government to get what you didn’t get in high school, if you got that far.

          18. Original Rebel says

            OBAMALINSKY’S HEALTH CARE WAS NOT VOTED IN … IT WAS RAMMED THROUGH IN THE DARK OF NIGHT IN A BASEMENT BACKROOM WITHOUT ANY INPUT FROM THE REPUBLICAN SIDE OF CONGRESS. You just insist on exhibiting your ignorance don’t you? Obviously you just can’t grasp the fact that scotus WROTE law in BOTH of this week’s opinions. In the first place – their opinions were based on what’s “fair” and what Kennedy sobbingly described as touchy feely sympathy for gays.

            NEITHER “OPINION” WAS BASED ON CONSTITUTIONAL LAW. THEY BOTH WERE BASED ON “FEELINGS” AND PERSONAL BELIEFS OF THE RADICAL LEFTWING LUNATIC LUGNUT JUSTICES, RATHER THAN ON THE LAW! Can you get that through your thick head? If not, I’m not wasting any more time on your ignorance. As I said, go play on the freeway or take your ignorance to some other thread where you might be appreciated. Certainly not here.

          19. Bruce J Trivellini says

            Article Three of the United States Constitution establishes the judicial branch of the federal government. The judicial branch comprises the Supreme Court of the United States and lower courts as created by Congress. [snip] “However, the appellate jurisdiction of the Court is different. The
            Court’s appellate jurisdiction is given “with such exceptions, and under
            such regulations as the Congress shall make.” HAVE YOUR REPRESENTATIVE BONE UP ON THE CONSTITUTION!

          20. Original Rebel says

            I can’t tell if you’re agreeing with me or not….. Two of my “reps” are demoncraps, so I can’t “have” them do anything. This is Washington state – need I say more?

          21. Bruce J Trivellini says

            the founders did in fact gave CONGRESS the power to restrict the Supreme Courts jurisdiction. Article Three of the United States Constitution establishes the judicial branch of the federal government. The judicial branch comprises the Supreme Court of the United States and lower courts as created by Congress.: Section 2; Clause 2 states among other things the following, “However, the appellate jurisdiction of the Court [Supreme Court] is different. The
            Court’s appellate jurisdiction is given “with such exceptions, and under
            such regulations as the Congress shall make.” So our whimpy congress could indeed restrict the courts jurisdiction on any of these issues

          22. Original Rebel says

            Agreed. I was taught that the Constitution does NOT give the SCOTUS the power to WRITE LAWS – merely INTERPRET THEM BASED ON THE CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS. But these guys are WRITING THE LAWS TO SUIT THEIR “FEELINGS”. Our “congress” is a bunch of political pimps that are afraid of their own shadow!

          23. charles says

            did you know that we were never to vote on senators. the house appoints senators. at least that what the Constitution says. that was all changed by a you guess it, a democrat, pos wodrow wilson.

          24. Original Rebel says

            No, I didn’t know. That was before my time and unfortunately, even tho I love history, I haven’t a lot of time to “bone up” for every thread I’m on. Sometimes I have to rely on the stuff I DO remember from school days.

            Figures that it would be a stinkin’ demoncrap that rewrote law – since they are perfectly willing to keep doing it, and daring us to do something about it!!!!!

            I think it’s time we DID!

          25. Jack says

            Whatever produces a lasting remedy.

          26. Nina says

            Absolutely including judges!!! I think by just getting our asses kicked by them this week really proved that!! Can we start tomorrow??

        2. charles says

          to get the ball rolling we need no less then 1 million to descend on DC with a million more waiting to take there place and keep it going until obama and his ilk leave.
          WE THE PEOPLE! have a right no take our country back. with so many people
          it would be to many for them to do anything but comply. make their occupy look like childs play which is all it was. the adults need to stand up.

          1. Maggiemae says

            I’d love to see 2 million descending on DC at one time. That would be hard task to accomplish. Groups have tried to gather even thousands in DC but the numbers weren’t there.

          2. charles says

            TEA PARTY needs to put up or shut up. the smearing they are getting is just causing many to turn away. you know, tell a lie enough and it becomes the truth. many of them TALK about how the country is being destroyed and how the grandchildren/children will suffer are really very self centered to not DO something.
            our founders put everything on the line including their very lives. many could not come but do have resources to help the ones that are there stay there. even isis is able to draw people to join them. we very much have the ability to reach many people very quick.

          3. Maggiemae says

            Wow….I have totally forgotten about the Tea Party. They used to always be out there and in the news on a regular basis. I have not heard one word about them in a very long time. Yes….they could be a strong voice in getting people on board for term limits….but they’re not. I tried to get the name of someone in charge a couple of years ago to see if they could incorporate term limits in their discussions. I did find out there is not ONE head of the Tea Party but raher every state runs their own. With no ‘central’ Tea Party leadership I can see why nothing ever gets done. Just like Federal government….too many opinions, too many diversions and NOTHING gets done. So goes the Tea Party. If each state is not strong in leadership and membership, nothing gets done. I live in 2 states…..winters are down south, remainder of the year up north. The southern area does have a Tea Party but I don’t vote there…while the northern area does not have a Tea Party anywhere near me and that is where I vote (I’m in an extremely rural area).
            SO….what avenue do you suggest to reach ‘many’ people very quickly. Do you have an active Tea Party in your area?

          4. charles says

            much of what happened to the tea party is what the irs did to them in not giving them there non profit status. lots and lots of money would have been donated to them but again this demonic administration used the gov. to quiet them a bit. louis lerner should be set in a john boat to sea.

        3. Jack says

          I mean no disrespect,but I have been saying that for six(6) times many years,and if you descover the answer,please pass it on. Thank you.

      3. Steve Crawford says

        Many of those US Agencies were even in place before Bush. The GAO told you’ll of the 81 wasteful redundant agencies but you’ll didn’t listen. The EPA want to restrict the smoke from your barbecue grill but will allow electrical power plants, chemical manufacturing plant and other manufacturing to pollute the air, water and because they create jobs, But the citizens that live around those plants suffer form respiratory, cancers and other medical ailments. TX want to build 5 new coal burning electrical plants, WITHOUT THE SCRUBBERS ON the smoke stacks because it will increase the building costs. Many of the US Agencies have nitwits running them. Citizens need to get rid of them, not the agency. WE MUST protect the air and water, BUT with common sense. And, no, no, no we must not get rid of the education dept, but put responsible, educated and skilled people in those positions, Not some big donor to the party. Our schools are in very poor shape, and both black and white student are coming out ignorant. VOTE OUT ALL THE INCUMBENTS IN STATE AND FEDERAL OFFICES.

        1. Linda Shelton says

          Yes, Yes Yes, get rid of the education department, put education back into the hands of the States. All the federal government can come up with is common core, which dumbs down our children more, and only is an indoctrination system.

        2. charles says

          many if not all those that run these departments are there because of affirmative action and were never qualified to be in the position that was handed them. many simply will not do the job or they do hardly anything most day so someone else or it appears that someone else has to be hired. many have college degrees but they have as much knowledge as a 8th grader should have.

          1. Steve Crawford says

            WHAT??

        3. Maggiemae says

          I would agree with you on the majority of your post with the exception being the Department of Education. I feel strongly that each state should run that Department. The less the Federal government is involved in ANYTHING in our lives, the better. States really need to step up and handle ALL the business for their state…..electrical, water, schools, roads/bridges/highways, etc. with funding from the Feds as a large part of our tax dollars go to the Federal government and they ‘p*ss’ it away on stupid crap that some lobbyists paid them to push through…..like is a rabbit happier if he gets a massage at night….and that list goes on (there’s even a book listing all the waste in DC). Sad that there’s enough to write a book about.

        4. Turn9 says

          You wrote, “we must not get rid of the education dept, but put responsible, educated and skilled people in those positions”. How many years have those agencies been in existence? The Department of Energy was created on 8/04/1977, TO LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL.
          Hey, pretty efficient, huh???
          AND NOW IT’S 2015 — 38 YEARS LATER — AND THE BUDGET FOR THIS “NECESSARY” DEPARTMENT IS AT $24.2 BILLION A YEAR. IT HAS 16,000 FEDERAL EMPLOYEES AND APPROXIMATELY 100,000 CONTRACT EMPLOYEES; AND LOOK AT THE JOB IT HAS DONE!
          (THIS IS WHERE YOU SLAP YOUR FOREHEAD AND SAY, “WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?”)
          38 years ago 30% of our oil consumption was foreign imports. Today 70% of our oil consumption is foreign imports.
          Ah, yes — good old Federal bureaucracy.

          The other departments have produced similar results.

      4. AKLady2015 says

        Those agencies and departments that you simply have not informed yourself as to their expertise and areas of action.

        “High paying czar positions obama has created” — you not only do not know what they do, you cannot even name the agencies they head. But, hey, we need to get rid of them, so says the person that seemingly failed English .. does not know that proper nouns are capitalized. Not capitalizing Obama’s name is not an insult — it just make you look ignorant.

        1. Turn9 says

          Actually not capitalizing obama’s name is a form of disrespect. I have no respect for the mamn and choose to show it by not capitalizing his name. As far as the Czars, I did not list then for brevity. Anyone who wishes to may do a Google search and find the answer. but in case you don’t know how to do that, here’s a list of obams’s czars. BTW, I cannot name the agencies they head because most don’t appear to head an agency. Here’s some of the Czars – i never knew we had a “Ebola Agency” or “Border Agency” – Climate Czar, Copyright Czar, Drug Czar, Great Lakes Czar, Iran Czar, Science Czar and on and on for a total of approx. 42. I don’t know if any have ever issued a report telling what they have accomplished and I have no idea how much of MY money they are absorbing. Yes, we do need to get rid of them – just like you said. I see you have adopted the typical Left Wing/Progressive/Socialist method of going to insults when logical debate fails you. No, I did not fail English. But I often leave some punctuation to the reader. I’m sorry you had trouble reading my post.

      Agreed! This country is ‘out of control’ at every level.

    5. Obie Miller says

      The EPA is one of the “federal bureaucracies” run by unelected people that is now running America. There is a book written by Jay Sekulow called “undemocratic” that should be required reading for all freedom loving Americans.

      Economic realities have nothing, whatsoever, to do with poisoning the environment. Economic realities will not prevent your child from being born with defects. Economic realities won’t protect you from cancer. The list is huge. Wake up, listen to reality and fact.

  6. Skyhawk says

    The Extra Pathetic Association, headed by what is a apparently a brain dead liberal, following Obama the destroyer’s directions is once again out of control and must be reigned in. Then properly disposed of.

  7. James in Texas says

    At this point this country and the states have only two options: 1. Nullification 2. States Rights upheld by force and withholding all Federal taxes collected in the state and retained by force if necessary, Period! With the current Two-Party system in our Federal Government, the Democrat/Socialist/Progressive/Independent/SCOTUS Party, and The Republican/Conservative Party weakened by the RINO Party, we have only the options numbers 1 & 2 left to us. The last and final choice is unthinkable, but may be forced upon those of us who follow the words of Patrick Henry when he said……”Give me Liberty, or give me Death!

    1. Gerry Costa says

      Amen to that James. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that but I believe it will.

    Revolt Now!

    1. Michael Dennewitz says

      YESSSSSSS!!!!!

  9. Trisha55 says

    More dictatorship from un-elected officials. Has everyone had enough of the regulations and rules created and treated as legislation? Congress is sitting on their laurels and doing nothing to protect the people who have elected them. They are derelict in their duties and it is past time for them to earn those salaries they collect FOR LIFE. They should have to review every regulation and rule created by any government agency and it should have to receive a 60 percent majority in both houses before it can be implemented.

    1. Michael Dennewitz says

      If every red blooded American would just stand up and say, “Bullshit, We’re damned sick and tired of all the rules and regulations, we’re fighting back,” what’s the worst that can happen?

      1. Trisha55 says

        I don’t know what’s the worst that can happen, but I’m ready to find out.

        1. charles says

          the military is on our side. blood my have to be shed. most of the blood shed by our brave soldiers has been on foreign soil. i have no trouble shedding my own blood if need be to save this great nation on this soil.

          1. Trisha55 says

            Right on, Charles!! My ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War in George Washington’s army and I have had family in every war since, including my Dad in WWII on Guadalcanal. I’m not shirking the fight, it’s in my DNA!!

  10. paulmclements says

    Obama is using the EPA to turn America into a third world nation. It’s his way to create equality around the globe. Instead of raising the third world’s standard of living to ours, he’s intent on reducing ours to match theirs.

    1. pineapple says

      President Obama Has His

      Hand in the Cookie Jar Too.

      After accepting $1.25 million
      in campaign contributions, President Obama made sure to include his
      “global warming” plans in his victory speech: “We want our children to live in
      an America that isn’t threatened by the destructive power of a warming planet.”

      You are likely familiar with the story of the
      failed Solyndra green energy initiative, which cost taxpayers $500 million;
      President Obama took a lot of flak for that.

      But here’s a little-known side of the
      Solyndra story I bet you haven’t heard: Obama, in essence, used taxpayer
      money to finance his re-election campaign . . . by funneling it
      through Solyndra.

      You see, when Solyndra fell on hard times, it
      passed into the hands of two large private equity
      investors . . . Goldman Sachs and George Kaiser. When $500
      million in taxpayer money was given to Solyndra, both Goldman Sachs and George
      Kaiser benefited. Coincidentally, both have made contributions to Obama’s
      election campaigns adding up to roughly $1.25 million.

      It doesn’t stop there.

      In
      2010, another federal loan of $400 million went Abound Solar. That
      resulted in a bankruptcy as well. But investors in Abound Solar seemed to
      do just fine . . . investors like billionaire heiress
      Patricia Stryker. Stryker has famously contributed $500,000 to the
      Coalition for Progress while throwing $85,000 toward Obama’s inaugural
      committee. It’s just a coincidence that the government handed a company
      she invested in $400 million just before bankruptcy . . .
      right?

      There’s
      also A123 Systems, which paid one lobbying firm $970,000 to secure money
      from the government — and received $279 million in federal assistance. The
      CEO of A123 Systems went on to fund multiple Democratic senators and
      contributed to Obama’s campaign.

      First
      Solar received $646 million in government loan guarantees, and has since
      contributed more than $180,000 to Democratic campaigns.

      GE
      is notorious for spending tens of millions of dollars a year to “buy”
      green energy credits for its wind turbines and other green technologies —
      credits which helped the firm pay ZERO taxes in 2011.

      There are a host of other examples of
      liberals getting wealthy off “global warming” initiatives just like these.

      You can see why green energy is such a
      profitable business — CEOs and executives get to rake in millions of dollars,
      while politicians get lucrative donations for their
      campaigns . . . and scientists get all the funding they need to
      keep them going . . . all on your dime.

        Personally, I refuse to refer to the little halfbreed bastard as you do. I have absolutely no damned respect for the lying mooselum queer, and if I refer to him/it, it’s never clean language. N Korea refers to him as “that little monkey in that big white house over there!” They, obviously use better language than I do….

      4. Michael Dennewitz says

        He/It’s not our “legal” president! And I almost puke each time I see his name used. His name is OVOMIT!!!

    The EPA is another reason for the downfall of this country with its out of control regulations.

    Why doesn’t McConnell and Boehner defund the EPA

    1. jim_wright says

      No guts.

      1. Frank Andrews says

        no BALLS!

  13. MARYSWEET says

    This is obama behind the EPA to get more money from the taxpayers. He wants only one class of people – that is the rich elite and then the poor and he will find every excuse to tax Americans. Kudos to the Governor of Indiana for refusing to obey an illegal mandate. Hope the rest of the 49 states will follow suit and refuse to obey these illegal executive orders that obama is spinning out as fast as his pen will go. obama is a sociopath and he will stop at nothing to destroy America.

    1. jim_wright says

      No, this I Obama’s war to fundamentally change this country from a great nation to a third woorld s### hole. That is equality in his mind. He and his wife both have spoken publically about how much they both hate thiz country, our flag, our natonal anthem, ans see this as a country of oppression. This is part of the fundamental change he spoke of and his plan to make the price of electricity skyrocket as he said.

      1. OSAMA OBAMA says

        “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times,” he said.-Obama” Ya see Jim, he wants us to live like the rest of the third world nations that were too stupid to raise themselves up, their leaders too corrupt to share all of that foreign aid we’ve been sending them.

      2. MARYSWEET says

        You have nailed it. That is exactly what obama has planned long before he ever was in the WH. He was groomed to destroy our once great country. obama is a puppet for george soros and the other billionaires who have backed him. valerie jarrett is also another handler of him and he is a smug arrogant muslim marxist sociopath who will only be satisfied when we are another third world banana republic with a dictator. I believe that will happen within the next year as he is causing a lot of the chaos in our country and abroad so he will have an excuse to declare martial law and cancel the 2016 elections.

      3. Michael Dennewitz says

        Ummmmmmm, He and his HUSBAND.. And the two girls were borrowed. When was the last time you witnessed two faggots having kids??? Oh, and by the way, we hardly ever see his husband and kids around much anymore, eh??

    2. Michael Dennewitz says

      Doubt it will happen Mary.. Hate to use this phraseology but, far too many n****** in the wood pile!

  14. Lucilla says

    Another 1 1/2 years of this evil administration. Will we survive it? We need to revolt! Too many American’s feel betrayed and fear for the future of the once great nation. American Patriots I call for us to fight!

    1. BoundlessExistence says

      Hey, put some action where your mouth is or stfu. Get your sorry nutcase ass over to Wash.DC and start your “revolt” then see what happens. The public will see what happens, we will see what is left of you being carried away from the White House in a body bag shown to us on network news. The only “revolt” that can make a difference is through the power of voting. Only an idiot would think that an armed attack against the federal government could be successful and that idiot would end up dead.

      1. Lucilla says

        Wow…are you having a bad day? Why don’t you go kiss obamas ass you asshole. We have a right to stand in front of the WH and protest loud and clear. You seem like a coward afraid to fight for this great nation. Go hide under a rock stupid.

People voting numerous times – dead people voting! Get your patriotic head out of your ass and get real, eh?? An outright revolution is the only thing left to change it all.. Vote??? Yeah, riiiighttt! HAHAHAHAHA

        1. charles says

          it is not like they don’t discuss us taking our grievances in massive numbers to DC. they likely have been leary about some of the buttons they have pushed concerned about what we would do. which is why they have not done exactly what they wanted to do very quickly instead of over a long period of time. when will we rise up! when all the excuses we use are meaningless and doing anything is to little to late. when AMERICA looks like detroit or any other city that progressives have destroyed. when our currency is worthless? when NY IS nuked?

        2. BoundlessExistence says

          You are a new kind of stupid!

          1. Michael Dennewitz says

            When they can’t think of a good rebuttal, they resort to calling someone stupid. When this country’s over run with commies and the HNIC enacts martial law, then we’ll run around and see who was/is Mr Stupid, eh?? LOL

          2. BoundlessExistence says

            Commies will never overrun this country, never, and anyone who thinks they will, like you, is paranoid, very paranoid.

      5. charles says

        do you think that would apply if it was 1 or more million people.

        1. BoundlessExistence says

          Any movement forming a group of people with the intent of attacking and overthrowing the President/Federal Government would be nipped in the bud because of whistle-blowers before it grew to anywhere near a million people. To think that Obama or any POTUS could be defeated by a group of rebels is foolish and all I have to say to anyone planning to do that is, dream on.

    2. festmatt5440 says

      Our forefathers ,would be using their guns , by now .

      1. charles says

        the new deal never would have happened. social security is nothing more then a ponzi scheme. the federal government would be starved for power as Jefferson wanted them to be.
        this take over would have ended before it hardly got started many years ago. i once has a pic of a grave stone a guy has a inscription on it that said, watch out for the party of treason. i have watched it since the days of andrew jackson.

  15. Gerry Costa says

    Every state should ignore every half-baked plan and executive order that this half-wit president or puppet supreme court have come up with. Every one of their ” ideas ” are aimed to either hurt America or American citizens.

  16. SouthernPatriot says

    EPA is another out of control heavy-handed government alphabet agency. There are many others. We need to nominate a core conservative who will immediately upon swearing in, begin to reverse all Obama programs, fiats and decrees, legislatively overturn and sign any federal laws which were altered, terminate many new programs (and some older ones), reign in federal departments and alphabet agencies, etc.

    “If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek
    My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will
    forgive their sin and will heal their land.” II Chronicles 7: 14

    1. Michael Dennewitz says

      Amen Patriot.. I’ve sincerely been trying my best to change my ways, but this country seriously needs to revolt and try to clean up the mess. If it happened tomorrow, it will still take years to correct it all!! GOD FORGIVE US FOR WHAT WE’VE ALLOWED THIS, YOUR COUNTRY TO BECOME!!!

  17. Citizen911 says

    Every law, every EO, every Judicial Activism should have a citizen review before ever getting implemented. Stopping these actions from ever being implemented would keep us all free of the tyranny that is rampant in our streets today. This would help keep unconstitutional laws being made in the US.

  18. Tiredofsocializm says

    All states and all citizens should now stand up to the Federsl government and all agency’s. I never thought I would live to say this but after the last 8 years I now believe our government is corrupt from top to bottom !

  25. MJB says

    More governors should do the same. Abolish the EPA, it kills jobs and industries and makes our power rates soar plus now they want to regulate every farm because they have a water runoff ditch that leads to a river. Get out my way EPA!

  26. ralph says

    America could work to help them selfs if they would do recalls on all of the ones that have been in office that have not worked to correct all of this mess. That would start a cure. And we should call for the removal of retirement pay for thoses in office that have not done a proper job to protect this country and we calling for actions of treason for all of them that have been paying our enemies to hurt America and our allies. We should also issue law suits for them that spent our social security money such as clinton that used it to balance the budget and put it in the general fund for use at will for any law maker, and then cut the people that have paid this money in for their retirement

  27. 32eagle says

  30. e111w says

    President Madison was possibly the most intelligent and staunch proponent for liberty among our founders. His direct admonition was for the states (and people) to REFUSE TO COMPLY with federal attempts at control beyond those enumarated in our Constitution. We will be seeing more and more refusals. You and I had damned well better be a part of it. What, for example, are the feds to do about it? Invade states? That would be suicidal. The feds would withhold funding with OUR money? States would need only to declare by law that ALL taxes be paid to the state(s). The fed “share” would be sent along according to Constitutional requirements. The state(s) would keep the rest. In fact: taxes paid.

Hell who else will pay them bribes oh I’m sorry campaign donations. I forgot congressmen can’t take bribes because they past a bill changing them into donations !!!

    1. glenn398 says

      What do you propose that can possibly replace that large of a generating station and don’t tell me solar as it is expensive and not reliable plus takes a lot of area to produce. Especially in the Midwest as they don’t get sun shine especially in the winter plus with snow covering the panels

    Good. That is if he doesn’t back down like he did last time.

  45. John Gasper says

    I don’t think the government has to worry about the Mike Pence. He caved to the left and the government on the issue of free choice for the Pizza people and he will surely not have the BALLS to stand long on this issue!!!!

  46. jim says

    About time some told Mr Obama and his cast of Characters where to go — The EPA and the mind numbing progressives have been pushing a faulty agenda of global warming based on humans. I’m not convinced that humans are causing it, and I don’t believe a lot of people do either. The burning of fossil fuels probably isn’t helping the environment, so lets start where the most pollution is being generated first — CHINA , lets boycott every product coming from China until they meet our current standards.While were at it lets also impose OSHA rules on them too, since I like safety too, until they meet our standards– Since allot of your brain washed kids can’t find jobs, they have the time to travel to a place, say like China, or Mexico, and let them see just how bad the air and water is their before we destroy any more industry in our country which sends more work to places like China, India, and Mexico where their is absolutely no control . But you can blame both political parties, neither stand with the working people of this land, and have sold out in the name of Power and wealth, sad days ahead for America and all of us.

We praise people who are sick when the change their God given sexuality. We let terrorist cross our borders and have a gay president that releases them from prison. Government corruption is at an all time high. Why should our Governors revolt against corrupt Government Organizations. The IRS should be abolished, The Epa should be abolished along with about 6 or 7 more with its leaders being arrested and tried for their crimes.

    Good for him,if the rest of the governors would stick up for the rights and will of the NORMAL people it wouldn’t take long and barry and his gestapo like tactics would stop and at least slow down.barry is kinda like taking care of your lawn.24D knocks broadleaf weeds out right away.kinda like the agitators.Then you have clover.It takes several doses of 24D,KINDA LIKE BARRY,you have to keep on his butt to defeat him.Lets keep on his(sorry)butt.

    Okay, Great…. now tell the Supreme Court that The Sates, and the People, respectfully, reserve the right to licence marriage. The Federal Government does not have that enumerated, listed, power. We Need Governors and State Congresses, and a Federal Congress who have the guts and gumption to stop The SC (and all courts) from legislating from the bench. They have that power, collectively; But, they will do nothing until the Electors, voters, of the several states tell them Enough is Enough. Tell them in 2016, vote them all out… we need new, and better Public Servants —ASAP!

        That is due to do CORRUPTION. Please get your facts straight. And the EPA is one CORRUPTED agency!!!

        1. AKLady2015 says

          Facts are nice, you might try some.

          The EPA was founded December 2, 1970
          The Coeur d’Alene mines have been polluting for over a century (100 years)..

          1. Alleged Comment says

            Got something for ya. No environmental damage was declared but since the EPA was formed.

          2. AKLady says

            There has been huge amounts of environmental damage going on for centuries. No one knew it was a problem until science began understanding the problems it was causing — cancer, birth defects …
            When science began figuring things out, the EPA was established to watch for pollution, attempt to prevent it and to requite the polluter to pay for the clean up of the mess they made.
            Get an education. There has been environmental damage going on since time began.

          3. Alleged Comment says

            Guess what? It’s still going on!!! With or without the EPA!! But you’re just a lot poorer now for it!

          4. AKLady says

            Police give out speeding tickets, but people still drive too fast. You pay a lot for those police salaries. Would you rather there were no police?
            Here is Alaska, We the People like the EPA. Mining, Oil, fish, sea food and Timber are our main income sources. If you are not old enough to remember the Exxon Valdez, look it up — you will understand why the EPA exists.
            Yes, spills etc, happen.
            However, Now there is muscle to force the polluter clean it up.

          5. Alleged Comment says

            Imagine if the captain wasn’t drunk in the first place? It is corruption causing pollution and there is nothing the EPA can do about it being corrupted as well.

            Pollution is just as worse as it has ever been, possibly even more so.

          6. AKLady says

            Corruption — NO
            Greed — YES
            .
            Your opinion gives them permission.

  61. Bruce Wayne says

    I think it’s time for ALL of the states governors to give the president,the EPA and the government the MIDDLE FINGER when it comes to the clean power plan.All the individual states have to do is draw up new laws that allow them disregard any new laws they propose,including the presidents idea of shutting down coal fired power plants which provide 40% of the countries power.

    1. AKLady2015 says

      Yes, let’s poison the land for our children and grandchildren … What this country needs are more Love Canals. What this country needs is more mined dumping slag in city drinking water sources.

      If you think the EPA is awful, why don’t you move to one of those communities — take you wife and children. I’m sure they would not want to miss out on the cancer, lung damage, brain damage …

  62. organic girl says

    The same needs to be done for the no proof of citizenship for voter registration that was just handed down by the SC..
    States need to just say NO to federal overreach, whether it’s some agency like the EPA or some arbitrary SC ruling that infiltrates State’s rights.

    Pence dropped his balls on the gays/pizza joint issue. Let’s hope he’s found them for good this time.

    1. AKLady2015 says

      May I suggest that you look at the actual question at law.

      The issue was not voter registration, but how federal forms could be required for local/state voter registration.

      Residence is required for state and local voting, not U.S. Citizenship. If one is a legal alien, one should be able to have a voice in their state and/or local community.

      1. organic girl says

        Only citizens should have the right to vote. Even a legal alien has no real allegiance to the US, and most likely only a passing concern for the community. I don’t care what some watered-down law implies.

        And you said it…a federal form…no federal interference in state voting laws.

        1. AKLady2015 says

          The majority of state and local voting is centered on “living” conditions, i.e., highway funding, street repair, sidewalks, hospitals, etc.

          Legal aliens pay state and local taxes; they are residents of those locations. They have every right to say how their money is spent.

          The states using federal forms chose to do so. The act is a deliberate act to deny some residents the right to vote.

          1. organic girl says

            Legal “residents” who are citizens, sure.
            Non-citizen residents have no claim to anything that citizens do. They are here as “guests” who need to support themselves. They do not deserve handouts from the govt.

          2. AKLady says

            Legal aliens are non-citizens.
            Illegal aliens are non-citizens.
            Non-citizen’s pay exactly the same taxes that you do.
            They live and work in your community.
            They support the same merchants.
            They pay rent. ….etc….etc…

            You are saying your neighbor should pay the same as you and qualify for the same services and benefits?

            WHY?

          3. organic girl says

            In order to receive benefits and rights of American citizens, they must become American citizens.
            Period.

          4. AKLady says

            No, actually they do not. They law says they do not.
            They pay the same taxes. They put their lives on the line serving in our military.

          5. organic girl says

            Most of them live on govt handouts, so your rose-colored glasses are actually dark gray.

          6. AKLady says

            Why do you think that “Most of them live on govt handouts”.
            Your rose colored glasses are so grey, they are almost black. That is the difference knowing the law makes.

            I know that statement to be false. The law says it is false. If you actually looked at the programs, you would be aware of the eligibility requirements.

            If they are official “refugees” the government did help for awhile. However, they are not permanently supported by the government. Refugees tend to arrive with the shirt on their back and little or no money.

            I do not know of any state that pays “welfare” to anyone who is not a citizen, or an eligible immigrant — in addition, they must blind or disabled or over 65 years of age.

            An applicant must be a U.S citizen, a U.S. National, or a qualified alien to get Food Stamp benefits — they must be employed, or registered with a job service and hunting for work.

    we need to file a rico law suit against the e.p.a. and have congress hold back any funds suppose to be going to the e.p.a, since congress controls the purse strings. start doing your job congress.

    Remove dual citizens from all government position, elected, appointed and normal hires.

    1. organic girl says

      Or simply disallow dual citizenship altogether.
      There is no good point to it. Either you’re a citizen bound to your country, or you’re not.

      1. AKLady says

        That is simply not possible,
        Many countries do not recognize citizenship termination.

        1. organic girl says

          America doesn’t need to recognize the duality. Anyone who becomes an American citizen should have to denounce any former citizenship, whether the former country recognizes it or not. You’re either 100% American or you’re not.

          1. AKLady says

            How do you denounce something that cannot be denounced?

            When an individual is accepted for citizenship, they do take an oath of allegiance. Most Americans cannot pass the test they are required to take.

            Why don’t you see how well you do? The practice test is free.

  65. Lorraine E says

    The EPA is an illegal department and if the republican party wasn’t controlled by liberal, socialist, RINOs they would defund the EPA. But with McConnell and Boehner blocking and destroying conservatives, that won’t happen. Washington D.C. is controlled by liberals. There is no longer a difference between Democrats and Republicans.
    In order for the states to survive they must implement a Countermand Amendment. A Convention of States is not workable because its implementation involves working with the federal government. The Countermand Amendment is fully explained by Charles Kacprowicz on the 4/24/15 Caravan to Midnight web site and also the Charles Kacprowicz web page. Charles Kacprowicz said that he would be willing to meet with governors and state representatives to explain how states can be excluded from federal regulations using the Countermand Amendment.

    1. AKLady says

      There is nothing, whatsoever, illegal; about the EPA.
      We should allow companies to poison land, air and water?

  66. JIM DALLY says

    Its all part of the cartel that is running the gov’t need term limits max 6 yrs for house and 2 terms for senate and 8yr for the supreme court

    1. organic girl says

      I can see how even a “good” elected official eventually needs to pass the baton and move on. The depths of corruption and influence are staggering.

      However picture this:
      Trey Gowdy’s term ends while his tenacious work has been illegally strung along by the State Dept’s refusal to cooperate. Someone else is appointed to take over his committee chairmanship, and who loses? Term limits would create a “bide our time and they’ll never catch us” scenario for corruption to continue unchecked.

      Throwing the good out with the bad never solved anything.

    2. AKLady says

      Cartel? Really?
      Congress is elected.
      There is a reason the Supreme Court is a lifetime appointment — it prevents any one president from “packing” the Court.

  67. JIM DALLY says

    ORGANIC GIRL YOU ARE CORRECT HOWEVER COULD THEY PUT CASES TO BED FASTER IF THE CARTEL WERE NOT THERE AND DO IT IN ONLY 2 YRS AND NOT 8 YEARS AND HOLDING , TREY GOWDY IS A GREAT LEADER AND NEEDS TO BE IN SENATE NOW AND PUSH FOR MORE REFORM IN GETTING TO THE TRUE PROBLEM AND THEN HE SHOULD BE PRESIDENT.

  68. Sean Rickmin says

    Well aklady2015,yes 24d is a herbicide,or2.4D as I quote from you, and yes is does get rid of noxious weeds.but if you really have something that’s REALLY annoying try ROUNDUP (sorry I don’t have the proper chemical name for this)just like I didn’t have the right punctuation in 2.4d.And you are mistaken barry DID exceed his authority.He does anything that he wants to do,whether it hurts the country or not.He is out of control.

    1. AKLady says

      Honey child, had the President exceeded his authority, the House of Representatives would have voted for impeachment. They have not.

      Article II of the United States Constitution gives the president the power of clemency. The two most commonly used clemency powers are those of amnesty, pardon and commutation. Presidents can issue blanket amnesty to forgive entire groups of people.

      You might want to educate yourself further.

    2. AKLady says

      WHO has stated that glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, is a probable carcinogen. It has been linked to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and lung cancer.

  69. Bruce Wayne says

    So your OK with paying prices so high that you may have to choose whether to by food or pay your electric bill!

    1. AKLady says

      What prices might those be?
      Illness is the price of pollution.
      Death is the price of pollution.
      Disability is the price of pollution.
      Deformed babies are the price of pollution.
      Want some gasoline in that bottle of formula you are about to feed to your baby?
      How about some rat poison?
      Maybe motor oil?

  70. JIM DALLY says

    aklady
    you are correct however there needs to be a review of supreme court justices every 8 yrs by the Senate should a justice become ill or not aware of the importance of the job, he or she should be put on notice of his duties to up hold the constitution not make new laws that are not his or her job.

    1. AKLady2015 says

      There are nine (9) justices. Should one become incompetent, his or her colleges are quite capable of moving the House of Representatives to impeach, however, the impeachment must be approved by the Senate.

  71. Sean Rickmin says

    Dear ak lady,First of all,i am NOT a honey child,second Obama is home free.If there was an impeachment there would be an uprising worse than ferguson.I think everyone knows what factions control America,and it sure is NOT the patriotic Americans.

  72. Snake Eyes says

    KIck —, Governor! Mr President, you and the EPA can shove your FASCIST REGULATIONS SIDEWAYS OR STRAIGHT UP!

  73. patriot carpenter says

    Global warming is a farce. It is one way to judge who is corrupt. WTF…is wrong with people. THINK FOR YOUR SELF……

  74. Tiger says

    Lots of luck. The courts backed-up with complaints against O. He will just run to the Supreme Court, you know those guys and gals in black robs now our Congress like the UN now our ruling body.
