HDR 137: The Obama Doctrine and How to Remove BS
ALOHA, ALL! So much for hope & change in Libya. Reports: Libyan rebels retreating in disarray « Hot Air “If the rebels cannot hold ground against the much-more disciplined government forces without allied air cover, that tends to discredit the notion that we are only enforcing a UN mandate and not intervening on their behalf. If Gaddafi triumphs, the West will look weak; if the rebels can stall Gaddafi’s forces — which looks less likely without significantly increased air attacks — then we will have set Libya up for a long, bloody civil war, one which will create all of the failed-state conditions that serve as breeding grounds for radical Islamist terror groups.” Thanks, Barry/Barack!!! Then there’s this: US paves way to arm Libyan rebels Brilliant! We don’t even know who these “rebels” are and we’re thinking of arming them??? Oh well – they could just go to Mexico and get guns from the ATF so no biggie. The No Drama 0bama Ramalamadingdong Doctrine: keep your enemies close and your friends….not so much!

ICYMI (In case you missed it): Wisconsin Stops Withholding Unions Dues As Of Today – Common American Journal “Guess what? The Legislative Reference Bureau published the Wisconsin budget repair bill Friday, and as the law provides, the Governor is taking the position the law is in effect.” BREAKING UPDATE: Wisconsin Judge Blocks Gov. Walker – Again – Rick Ungar – The Policy Page – Forbes And there’s more: Wisconsin Fight Goes to Court – National Review Online The lefties & union thugs are trying to unseat conservative justice David Prosser and replace him with an environmental lawyer. “This is for all the marbles,” says Charlie Sykes, a prominent conservative talk-radio host in Milwaukee. “Scott Walker could survive losing the state senate. But it would be devastating if he were to lose in the supreme court. If Prosser loses, almost everything that Walker enacted could be overturned.” The high court, he worries, has a long history of activism, especially when liberals hold the majority. Let’s hope justice (Prosser) really does prevail!
And you thought Cap & Trade was dead? Support the Energy Tax Prevention Act “The goal of Cap-and-Trade was to supplant traditional American energy sources—oil, natural gas, coal—with new, inconsistent energy sources, namely wind and solar. Looking to achieve this same end, the EPA is busy implementing regulations which would raise prices at the pump and Americans’ electric bills. This legislation is designed to prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from using the Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gasses, unilaterally dictating national energy policy.” (Thanks to Dick for the link)
Well that explains it. Clinton & Gates Suggest Constitution No Longer Supreme | NewsReal Blog According to Hillary: “Well, we would welcome congressional support,” the Secretary said, “but I don’t think that this kind of internationally authorized intervention where we are one of a number of countries participating to enforce a humanitarian mission is the kind of unilateral action that either I or President Obama was speaking of several years ago.” Clinton appears to be saying that the processes of the United Nations are superior to those of the United States. If an action is “internationally authorized,” multilateral, and “humanitarian,” it does not require Congressional approval. REALLY, HILLARY? What’s your definition of “is”??? (Thanks to James for the link.)

But can he sing “New York, New York”? Schumer Caught on Open Mic – The Daily Beast “I always use the word extreme,” Schumer said, “That is what the caucus instructed me to use this week.” Karaoke anyone?
Final Thought: “The people of the United States are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” -Abraham Lincoln (17 September 1859, speech in Cincinnati, OH)
