    Stop EPA Now HELP REIGN IN THE EPA!
    If the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is successful in denying Pebble the right to even submit a permit application to undergo state and federal review, it sets a precedent that the EPA can kill any project in the U.S. at any time. This would give the EPA control over the American economy. ​Please take 30 seconds to sign our petition and send a message to the EPA asking them to stand down and reconsider their preemptive action.

  • THE HILL – As Dems lose Latinos, Senate could follow10/30
    Democrats have lost their grip on Hispanic voters heading into Election Day — and could lose the Senate because of them. Even though Hispanics split heavily for their party in 2012, mounting evidence suggests Hispanics could sit the midterms out, after immigration reform has fallen from the White House agenda.”There’s no question it’s going to affect Democrats in this midterm. There’s no one to blame but Democrats themselves,” said Arturo Carmona, executive director of Hispanic engagement group Presente Action. A Pew poll out Wednesday revealed Democrats suffered an 8-percentage-point drop in support from Hispanic voters nationwide since 2010, down to 57 percent. Meanwhile, Republicans gained 6 points over the past four years, with 28 percent now saying they support a generic Republican House candidate.

    Cuba’s presence at the upcoming Summit of Americas gives President Barack Obama the opportunity to engage with Cuba in light of strained relations, says American University professor of government William LeoGrande.  “It’s not a big security threat anymore since the end of the Cold War when the Soviet Union disappeared,” LeoGrande told Ed Berliner on “MidPoint” Monday on Newsmax TV.  “Right now, the big block actually is the embargo against Cuba,” he said.

CONSERVATIVES READYTO GIVE THEIR LEADERS HELL

CONSERVATIVES READY TO GIVE THEIR LEADERS HELL

House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell are pictured. | AP Photo

By LAUREN FRENCH and ANNA PALMER | 10/29/14 5:05 AM EDT Updated: 10/30/14 6:47 AM EDT
Conservatives in Congress are drawing up their wish list for a Republican Senate, including “pure” bills, like a full repeal of Obamacare, border security and approval of the Keystone XL pipeline — unlikely to win over many Democrats and sure to torment GOP leaders looking to prove they can govern.

Interviews with more than a dozen conservative lawmakers and senior aides found a consensus among the right wing of the Republican Party: If Republicans take the Senate, they want to push an agenda they believe was hamstrung by the Democratic-controlled chamber, even if their bills end up getting vetoed by President Barack Obama.

Their vision could create problems for congressional leaders who want to show they aren’t just the party of “hell no.” And while conservatives say they agree with that goal, their early priorities will test how well John Boehner and Mitch McConnell can keep the party united

“The excuse that we can’t get that past the Senate gets weaker. I imagine it will still be trotted out from time to time, but the whole ‘Harry Reid won’t let that go through’ argument will be put to bed,” said Rep. Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina. “That creates a really good opportunity for conservatives.”

Their plan is to pressure Boehner and McConnell into taking up bills designed to force the Obama administration to defend some of its most unpopular policies, including the 2010 health care law. And they want to increase border security without any legislative sweeteners like increases in visas for high-tech workers or allowing a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. Conservative Republicans also want to create work requirements for welfare recipients and force Obama to veto the Keystone XL pipeline.

Mitch McConnell is a Modern Day Sir John French

Mitch McConnell is a Modern Day Sir John French

By: Leon H. Wolf (Diary) | October 29th, 2014 at 09:58 AM | 20

RESIZE: AAA

french-mcconnell
Almost exactly 100 years ago (which is to say, longer ago than anything Ezra Klein cares about), British general Sir John French, Commander in Chief of the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) in World War I, was responsible for one of the most significant military failures of leadership in modern history. His failure is, with remarkable parallels, playing out again on the American political stage at the hands of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)68%.

Modern historians tend to take the view that World War I could not have played out any other way than the messy and brutal war of attrition that it eventually became. Probably, this is correct. Once the trench lines were drawn, particularly on the Western front, neither the central powers nor the entente would have agreed to a peace acceptable to the other, and the nature of industrial warfare made an actual breakthrough highly unlikely. Accordingly, the only realistic scenario which would bring about the end of the war would involve one side outlasting the other – “outlasting” in this context meaning “having more young men and materiel to sacrifice to the cause.” And so millions of young men went to die in abbatoirs like Verdun and the Somme until the Central Powers were finally broken in 1918.

More tea party conservatives expected to win House seats, challenge Boehner

More tea party conservatives expected to win House seats, challenge Boehner

By Ed O’Keefe October 28
A new band of combative conservatives is likely to win House seats next week, posing a fresh challenge for Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) and his leadership team as they seek to govern an expanded GOP majority next year.

Six to eight new lawmakers are likely to replace incumbent Republicans in deep-red districts, primarily in the South. Most of them, such as Gary Palmer of Alabama and John Ratcliffe of Texas, are backed by the tea party movement and will be more likely than their predecessors to oppose GOP leaders on key legislation.

Other Republican wins are expected in blue states such as California, Florida, Illinois and New York, where voters take a dimmer view of the tea-party-style politics that has dominated the House in recent years. New lawmakers from those areas are more likely to temper their partisanship ahead of the 2016 elections, when congressional Democrats are expected to fare better.

Bill Whittle — Make Him Own It: Why You Must Vote in the Midterms

Make Him Own It: Why You Must Vote in the Midterms

Published on Oct 23, 2014
Obama can’t lose this election. Already re-elected, he’s in for another 2 years. So, why should you vote in the Midterms?

Dan Peterson – Property Rights – Stephen Flanagan-Concerned Veterans for America State Director

Published on Oct 21, 2014

Dan Peterson Executive Director Coalition for Property Rights

History documents the United States of America was founded upon the protection of private property rights. This principle, along with the other guarantees promised in our Constitution, and the rule of law laid the foundation for American prosperity and exceptionalism.

Sadly, over the past few decades, there has been a steady erosion of these fundamental tenets of our nation…Florida’s Amendment 1 is an extension of Agenda 21 the United Nations One World Order that wants to take away property rights of individuals.
State and Counties are working with an organization called ICLEI is the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, or Local Governments for Sustainability. these NGO grooups are commonly known as Florida Seven 50, 20/30 or 20/60 plans. Maurice Strong of the U.N and one of Agenda 21 founders says this: “…high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and convenience foods, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work place air conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable.” . “Suburban Housing” i.e private property.. Strong does not want any country to have a Constitution: “It is not feasible for sovereignty to be exercised unilaterally by individual nation states.”
