Special Double Edition Rich TAkes!
Lots has been going on, and very little has been going on. Trey Goudy is named Chairman of the Select Committee to investigate Benghazi, The EPA has been asking human subjects to stick their head up a tail-pipe, and the IRS targeting seems to track directly to the White House (to the surprise of virtually no one).
The EPA has also proposed regulating (read: taxing) cow farts. And the FCC has raised the ugly head of Net Neutrality once again. Oh yes, the TEA Party is not dead yet.
Linking straight to the White House
Gun-running in Libya and Syria led to 9/11/2012 at Benghazi?
I’m not sure if better late than never applies here, John Boehner should have done this a year ago
Clinton advisor Dick Morris traces video talking points directly to Hillary.
Speaking of Fast & Furious, I remember raising my eyebrows when I heard reports of an early Secretary of State speech in Mexico City inn early 2009. She said, “Our insatiable demand for illegal drugs fuels the drug trade,” Mrs. Clinton said, using unusually blunt language. “Our inability to prevent weapons from being illegally smuggled across the border to arm these criminals causes the deaths of police officers, soldiers and civilians.”
Besides the obvious, which is, if we controlled our borders this wouldn’t be happening, my second thought was that legal semi-automatic firearms sold in the US would not be at the top of any drug cartel’s wish list. Much better would be Mac10s, Uzzis, and AK47s from black market sources, which would also be cheaper than US AR-15s when purchased in bulk.
The timing here is important, this story appeared in the NY Times on March 25, 2009.
Judging by her statements in Mexico City, Hillary must have been in the loop on fast & Furious as well. No other logical conclusion can be reached.
The Obama administration announces on March 24 that Project Gunrunner will be expanding: “March 24, 2009: David Ogden, deputy attorney general at the time, stated, “The president has directed us to take action to fight these cartels and Attorney General Eric Holder and I are taking several new and aggressive steps as part of the administration’s comprehensive plan.””
Fast & Furious timeline:
And this from MRC:
“DOJ’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is increasing it’s efforts by adding 37 new employees in 3 new offices using $10 million dollars in Recovery Act funds and redeploying 100 personnel to the southwest border in the next 45 days to fortify it’s Project Gunrunner- which is aimed at disrupted arms trafficking between the United States and Mexico. ATF is doubling it’s presence in Mexico itself, from 5 to 9 personnel working with the Mexicans specifically to facilitate gun tracing activity which targets the illegal weapons and their sources in the United States.”

It’s long past time to dismantle the EPA. Now they are going after your hamburger.
I’d say we should stick the EPA administrator who dreamed this up in a box and pump in diesel fumes.
Either the EPA is lying about the toxicity of small particle air pollution which is a fraud on the citizens and misconduct in a position of trust. ~ OR ~ The EPA is funding and sponsoring and Medical Schools are complicit in unethical and immoral/illegal human experiments.
the union movement was historically racist too
…the record from the Great Depression suggests that upward pressure on wages really can hurt the country. Seriously.
Candidate Obama: “…the price of electricity will necessarily skyrocket”
Why the Brendan Eich/Mozilla incident is frightening
“”So, you come into the country illegally and the attorney general of the United States declares that these individuals have a civil right to amnesty. How can this possibly be: [from] the chief law enforcement officer in America?”
Obama now claims it must be done by summer. Boehner denies. The People just want the LAW enforced, starting with the border.
Vote Fraud Update:
True the Vote: “Pew Research’s finding that 2.75 million Americans are registered to vote in more than one state…”
Limits to individual candidates stand. Who knew there was an aggregate total limit?
Cummings is implicated in IRS targeting True the Vote.
Duh! Over 600 million for a website that still doesn’t work.
ODDS and ENDS:
I am shocked by very little these days. I am shocked.

You too can do your own climate modeling right at home.
Lord Christopher Monckton weighs in on the fairly recent theory that the oceans are providing a heat-sink for AGW increases.
From March, 2012. If you read nothing else, this one is worth a look.
“The real cutting edge in climate science was publicly exposed recently in a book by one of the long time leaders of the German environmental movement, Fritz Vahrenholt, in his new book, The Cold Sun. The book expresses the growing concern among more careful real climate scientists, rather than political scientists, that trends in solar activity portend a return to the cold, limited agricultural output, and widespread disease of the Little Ice Age, or even a more full blown, overdue by historical standards, real ice age.”
The root of the global warming confusion is that the UN is not a disinterested party that can be trusted to compile and interpret the climate science on which the world’s policymakers can rely. The UN sees the theory of man caused catastrophic global warming as a tremendous opportunity for gaining the regulatory and taxation powers of a world government.”
