Card Check In Senate Next Month
It’s About Freedom Not Fear by Tim Cameron at American Solutions
Our polling shows that the American people are firmly on the side of supporting a worker’s right to a secret ballot election. In fact, the tri-partisan agreement to defend this right is overwhelming, as 77% of Republicans, 82% of Democrats, and 79% of independents believe in protecting private ballots. Support for private ballots is so broad it also spanned union households and every subgroup examined, including majorities of every age, race, geographic group and both genders. So, once again…. why are our representatives in Senate and Congress working against our wishes??????? Put the pressure on.. sign the petition at link above.

Europe Encourages Higher Taxes In America … Heritage Foundation
The solution, according to the Prime Minister, is obvious: make sure people don’t have any other options. In his words, “deeper co-operation is therefore necessary if tax revenues are to be increased in a way that truly helps fiscal consolidation.” If everyone agrees to raise taxes together, then there will be no tax competition, and an enormous obstacle in the way of building the ever-bigger state will have been blown away. But the real prize for the EU lies in the US. The goal of all this Euro-coordination, the Prime Minister argues, is to “encourage the US – with lower tax levels in most areas – to do what has to be done to address its spiraling budget deficit.” Well, we can agree that the U.S. has a spiraling budget deficit. But what the EU is after is to convince the U.S. that lower American taxes – to the extent that they are, in fact, lower – need to be raised in order to reduce tax competition and thereby make life easier for big-spending European welfare states.
Dems Backtrack, Scrap Plans for Probe Into Scandal-Tarnished ACORN …Washington Times
House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. has backed off his plan to investigate wrongdoing by the liberal activist group ACORN, saying “powers that be” put the kibosh on the idea. Mr. Conyers, Michigan Democrat, earlier bucked his party leaders by calling for hearings on accusations the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN) has committed crimes ranging from voter fraud to a mob-style “protection” racket. “The powers that be decided against it,” Mr. Conyers told The Washington Times.

Al Gore and his Ponzi Scheme
An environmental start-up backed by Al Gore’s venture capital firm aims to take advantage of coming U.S. climate change legislation by helping companies like Coca Cola and even cities cut pollution. Hara, a 25-employee company that debuted in 2008, provides online software to help companies reduce their carbon footprint — a $2.5 billion market that will grow 10-fold if the proposed energy bill, which will require companies to get permits for emissions, becomes law, Chief Executive Amit Chatterjee said. Steve Milloy has this to say about the sordid affair: “Operating as a stealth tax, cap-and-trade will make the vast majority of Americans poorer and less free — but Al Gore, Kleiner Perkins, Amit Chatterjee and Hara will be laughing all the way to the bank.”

HR 675. Obama’s way around Posse Comitatus
In January, without any recognizable corporate media coverage, Rep. Bob Filner, a California Democrat, introduced HR 675. The bill would amend title 10 of the United States Code and extend to civilian employees of the Department of Defense the authority to execute warrants, make arrests, and carry firearms. The bill was referred to the Armed Services Committee on January 26, 2009. H.R. 675 sidesteps Posse Comitatus by defining “law enforcement officer of the Department of Defense” as “a civilian employee of the Department of Defense,” including federal police officers, detectives, criminal investigators, special agents, and game law enforcement officers classified by the Office of Personnel Management Occupational Series 0083 (the United States Office of Personnel Management is described as an “independent agency” of the U.S. government that manages the civil service of the federal government). Members of the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce shall be organized, trained, cleared, equipped, and ready to deploy in support of combat operations by the military; contingencies; emergency operations; humanitarian missions; disaster relief; restoration of order; drug interdiction; and stability operations of the Department of Defense in accordance with DoDD 3000.05.

UN Conference on the World Financial and Economic Crisis
This is a follow up to the weekend news of the impending Global Tax perpetuated by the UN on us. The conference was last week. Above is the speach given by the UN Administrator of Development Program. Basically it says they need the money to continue it’s works in Africa and other areas around the world and that the global economic crisis is no excuse for not continuing with the plan. The conference adopts the finalized 16-page document. It reminds the industrialized countries of their promise at the G20 summit in London to pour more than a trillion dollars to stimulate world economy. The move also calls for a greater share of the global stimulus fund for developing countries. Furthermore, it requires an overhaul of international financial institutions, as well as more influence of the United Nations in future negotiations. Immediately after the signing and adoption of the program, the U.S. signified its concerns. The country asserts that the reform of financial institutions could only be made by respective UN members and not by the United Nations as a whole. Of particular interest is the paragraph numbered 14 in this document:
Congress is killing U.S. softly with too many laws and too much red tape by Hugh Hewitt
The Obama/Pelosi/Reid Democrats in charge of everything in Washington have decided to order everything on the menu, and a permanent class of government-addicted elites –lawyers, economists, think-tankers, MSMers, senior bureaucrats– are cheering them on because the growth in the size and complexity of government means a growth in the demand curve for specialist services at specialist prices. A country struggling to get through the worst recession since the Great Depression cannot imagine that its elected representatives are pushing the imposition of vast new taxes and the creation of gigantic new bureaucracies, but it is.
More on Friday’s Passage of Cap & Trade in House.. some call it Treason, others call it Rape of Taxpayers, It Can Not Stand
The “American Clean Energy and Security” Rip-Off By Peter Orvetti
As its sponsors struggled to make it palatable to representatives from energy-producing states, the bill swelled from 942 pages to over 1,200, leaving undecided members little time to digest the new material. This brings to mind Rep. John Conyers’s admission to Michael Moore that members of Congress “don’t really read most of the bills” they vote for, because it would “slow down the legislative process.”.. A Center for Data Analysis study concludes ACES will hurt the gross domestic product by $9.4 trillion by 2035 and cost the average family $1,241 per year. That’s because, as the Wall Street Journal put it last week, “the whole point of cap and trade is to hike the price of electricity and gas so that Americans will use less. These higher prices will show up not just in electricity bills or at the gas station but in every manufactured good, from food to cars.” A British analysis finds the average family there is paying nearly $1,300 a year for carbon-cutting programs that were introduced just a few years ago.
Map Showing Each States Obligation (New Taxes) Under Cap and Trade
And there’s the rub. America possesses vast untapped reserves of natural gas and an abundance of coal with which to generate electricity. But environmental opposition prevents exploitation of our natural gas reserves. And the green position that there is no such thing as “clean coal,” combined with environmentalists’ skill at using the judicial process to obtain goals they cannot achieve in the legislature, has caused the cancellation of numerous coal plants.
