Environmental Disaster: 
The Renewable Fuel Standard
Marlo Lewis
.
.
{insideronline.org} ~The bipartisan disaster called the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) has all the usual characteristics of bureaucratic central planning... It features unrealistic actually, impossible goals, hidden taxes and regulatory burdens, and costly “unintended” consequences, and it’s carried out by anonymous, unelected, unaccountable government officials. Meanwhile, RFS reduces the mileage of motor vehicles, funnels money from consumers to well-connected “crony capitalists,” raises the price of food for the world’s poor, destroys rain forest and wetlands, and expands a dead zone the size of Connecticut in the Gulf of Mexico. It was supposed to make us more energy independent. It was supposed to protect the environment, yet it is responsible for converting millions of acres of wetlands and wildlife habitat to corn plantations. Even the “greens” have turned against it. And, like many a horror-movie villain, it’s immortal. http://www.insideronline.org/reader.php?id=PKqR

Supreme Court bombshell: 
Does nObama’s immigration guidance 
violate the Take Care Clause?
David Bernstein
.
{insideronline.org} ~ In the process of granting review of the decision, by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, invalidating the nObama administration’s immigration guidance granting de facto albeit revocable legal status to hundreds of thousands of undocumented residents of the United States... the Supreme Court unleashed a bombshell. Without any explicit request from the parties, the court added the following question for review: “Whether the Guidance violates the Take Care Clause of the Constitution, Art. II, §3.” This is a stunning development. The clause states that “The President shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” This is the first time, to my knowledge, that the Supreme Court, maybe any court, has suggested that the Take Care Clause is justiciable i.e., that the president’s inactions are subject to judicial review under the clause. I’m not sure that any Supreme Court litigant has ever even seriously pursued an argument under the clause. While opponents of judicial activism might be horrified by this turn of events, we should consider why the court seems to have volunteered to involve itself in what has traditionally been seen as a “political question” not subject to judicial intervention. Caveat: No one — not even Supreme Court experts — seems to know how many votes it takes to add an issue to cert. grant, or, assuming it takes four or five, whether the justices typically defer to their colleagues if one or more of them feel strongly about adding an issue. So we don’t know how many justices really wanted to decide the Take Care Clause issue.

lack of oversight for Iran deal

.
{timesofisrael.com} ~ At the first Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing since implementation of the Iran nuclear deal... committee chair Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) expressed consternation that the international coalition responsible for holding Iran accountable for its obligations lacks the will to do so. After the United Nations Security Council didn’t address Iran violating its own ban on ballistic missile testing in recent months, it’s more than unlikely that an international partnership would respond effectively to more violations as European countries begin conducting business with the Islamic Republic, Corker indicated Wednesday. “The thinking that we are going to easily put that coalition back if there is something so out of bounds and egregious when everybody is in Tehran doing business right now is just not going to happen,” he said at this week’s hearing. “There now is no coalition and to me that is one of the greatest flaws of this deal now that they have what they want.”

North Idahoans Defeat Progressive
Mayor’s ‘Refugee’ Resolution
 Dan Lyman
.
.
{trevorloudon.com} ~ Last week, I published a piece detailing a conflict manifesting in my semi-rural community in North Idaho, with the understanding that our local issue is merely a microcosmic snapshot of analogous events taking place around much of the world, especially across the pond in Europe... Ruthless globalists, war mongers, and political architects have systematically turned the Middle East and neighboring regions into the ultimate pit of despair, and like an ant colony smashed by a juvenile’s savage shoe, its inhabitants are pouring out in a historic mass exodus – all according to the overarching game plan. Indeed, the Western-backed Islamic State (ISIS) explicitly promised to flood Europe with refugees and jihadists as part of their quest for worldwide domination. They weren’t just making empty threats. Now, bleeding heart liberals and conniving progressives across the West have taken up the mantle to joyously welcome these ‘refugees’ to infiltrate our countries, cities, and villages, with little thought given to immediate safety and security issues, or the irreversible long-term cultural and financial ramifications of inviting colonization by non-assimilatory, Third World welfare dependents. They also don’t know or care that the majority of these ‘migrants’ are military-aged males, legions of whom are ready for war, rape, and pillaging.        http://www.trevorloudon.com/2016/01/north-idahoans-defeat-progressi...

Hilly emails so secret senior
lawmakers can't read them
 DOUGLAS ERNST
.
.
{wnd.com} ~ Emails on Hilly Clinton’s “home-brew” email server were so sensitive that senior lawmakers with the highest levels of security clearance must sign additional nondisclosure agreements before viewing them... Senior members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and other key lawmakers do not have authorization to view intelligence known as “special access programs,” or SAP, on Clinton’s server, a source told Fox News on Thursday. The former secretary of state has been dogged with new questions on her handling of classified documents since news of the SAP intelligence was reported Tuesday. A Jan. 14 letter from Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III to lawmakers and officials confirmed SAP intelligence passed through Clinton’s server. The letter was exclusively obtained by Fox.

Lying Loretta Lynch – 
AG Pretending nObama Gun 
Dictates Actually Fix A Problem
 Rick Wells
.
.
{constitutionrising.com} ~ As incredible as it seems, Paul Ryan inexplicably left something off of Hussein nObama’s “Winter Festival” omnibus gift as it was stacked up next to this year’s “Holiday Tree.”...  It certainly seemed like everything nObama could have possibly wanted was included in that most dastardly of Ryan misdeeds. Surely the naughtiest of boys knew the importance of making their lists and checking them twice. Yet there’s poor Loretta Lynch, forced to go with her tin cup in hand to the Senate Appropriations Committee, asking Republican Senators to support the regime in the one area in which they have a spine to stand in resistance, the protection of the Second Amendment. nObama, Lynch and the other America haters already had their scheme to infringe by converting gun rights into gun privileges set when Ryan’s gift was delivered. It’s not possible that they left the funding component to chance. Something else must be in the works. They’re always scheming and ready to pounce on the crisis that can’t be allowed to go to waste, even creating crises from time to time as needed. Maybe it will be another of the convenient mass shootings that will provide the next opportunity for a teary-eyed “onion-finger nObama” to remind us just how mad he is and demand our submission to make him feel better. If such an event does occur we might expect the declared perpetrators to have an appearance more in line with the nObama agenda, white men, those most exploitable “mentally unstable militia types,” or the lone wolf “white supremacists.”

Military Martial Law Bill 
Sneaked Through by Senate
.
.
{gopthedailydose.com} ~ Bill gives nObama power to deploy military anywhere – including on U.S. soil... “The Authorization for Use of Military Force put for­ward by Mc­Con-­nell would not re­strict the pres­id­ent’s use of ground troops, nor have any lim­its re­lated to time or geo­graphy,” Defense One reported. In other words, the authorization allows the president to deploy the military anywhere at his discretion – both foreign and domestic – for as long as he wants. Several senators, including Sen­ate Ma­jor­ity Whip John Cornyn, were surprised by McCon-nell’s decision to fast-track the bill after a year of deep in-fighting over similar measures in the Senate. “He did?” he asked the Na­tion­al Journ­al on Thursday morn­ing when reporters informed him about the bill. Even some Senate Democrats have an issue with a new authorization without geographical restrictions placed on the president. http://gopthedailydose.com/2016/01/23/breaking-military-martial-law...

New York's Michael Bloomberg 
Weighs US Presidential Candidacy
.
.
{voanews.com} ~ Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is weighing a late entry into the 2016 U.S. presidential contest as an independent candidate... The 73-year-old Bloomberg served three terms as the mayor of the biggest U.S. city and, since leaving office two years ago, has unsuccessfully sought to win support for tighter gun control laws in the U.S. Bloomberg, with a net worth of more than $40 billion, is one of the wealthiest of Americans, his fortune in part stemming from the widespread use of what many in high finance and media circles know as the "Bloomberg machine," a vast and costly collection of financial data about companies and economies from across the globe.

Jury-Nullification Activist 
Delivers In-Your-Face Defense
 BOB UNRUH
.
{wnd.com} ~ A Michigan man charged with felony obstruction of justice and jury tampering for handing out a leaflet on jury nullification in front of a courthouse contends the local prosecutor’s objection to the contents of his material doesn’t make his actions a crime... Keith Wood, a former pastor, was arrested Nov. 24 on the orders of Mecosta County District Court Judge Peter Jaklevic while he was handing out leaflets published by the Fully Informed Jury Association to members of the public on public property. Wood was charged with felony “obstruction of justice” for giving members of a jury pool what prosecutors described as “a pamphlet that encouraged the jurors to violate their oaths and directly contradicted the instructions the jurors would be given thereby tainting the entire jury pane.” He’s also charged with attempting to “influence the decision of a juror in a case by argument or persuasion that was not a part of the proceedings in open court in the trial of the case.”

Benghazi victim’s sister unhappy with
Clintons’ breezy Benghazi attitude
Moe Lane
,
.
{redstate.com} ~ Fox News had on Kate Quigley, the sister of Glen Doherty one of the people killed by Islamist terrorists at Benghazi*... and to say that Ms. Quigley was appalled by the way that both former Secretary of State Hilly Clinton and former President Bill Clinton have brushed off Secretary Clinton’s deadly incompetence with regard to Benghazi is to understate the case.  Basically, Bill Clinton had been ostentatiously upset that his dear, dear wife was put through oh, so many tough questions by those awful Republicans from Congress. As you might imagine, this did not go over well with  someone whose memories of Benghazi include a coffin. There are many things in that article/video that will make you grit your teeth in frustration and anger at the cavalier way the Clintons’ breeze through murderous foreign policy disasters of their own making, but this particular passage will probably focus matters a bit for you:

The Iran nuclear agreement 
is national security fraud
Fred Fleitz  
.
{aim.org} ~ As the nObama administration celebrates what it claims is a great victory for its nuclear diplomacy with Iran, many Americans are scratching their heads and wondering how we got to this point given the many examples of Iranian bad faith and belligerent behavior since the nuclear deal was announced last July. For example…
.
-Because the IAEA declared that Iran met the requirements to roll back its nuclear program to what the nuclear deal calls “Implementation Day,” it will receive approximately $150 billion in sanctions relief even through Iran is still designated by the United States as a state sponsor of terror and was listed in a June 2015 State Department report as the world’s leading terrorist state.
-Over the last six months, Iran increased its support to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Hezbollah, its terrorist proxy.
-Iran is threatening Saudi Arabia by backing a Shiite insurgency in Yemen.  Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states broke off diplomatic relations with Iran this month after the Saudi embassy and a consulate in Iran were ransacked.
-Iran tested ballistic missiles in October and November even though President nObama and Secretary hanoi-Kerry said last July that under the deal Tehran would abide by U.N. Security Council resolutions for eight years calling on it to halt its missile program.  (The Treasury Department imposed sanctions on Iran for the missile tests yesterday but Foundation for Defense and Democracy Executive Director Mark Dubowitz called them “symbolic and ineffective.”)
-Iran fired rockets last month near a U.S. aircraft carrier.  It also detained and humiliated 10 U.S. Navy sailors last week.
-At the same time, few Americans understand that Iran keeps its nuclear infrastructure under the nuclear deal and will be allowed to expand it.
-Iran will continue enriching uranium under the nuclear deal with 5,000 uranium centrifuges and will be developing more advanced centrifuges while the deal is in effect. This will occur even though when Barack nObama became president, his administration supported the Bush administration’s effort to stop the spread of uranium enrichment technology and strengthened a nuclear technology sharing agreement with the UAE which required it to not to pursue this technology.
-Although Iran agreed to remove the core of a plutonium-producing heavy water-reactor, it will be rebuilt and redesigned with Chinese assistance.  While the redesigned reactor will produce less plutonium, it also will help Iran to master this technology.
-Although President nObama and Secretary hanoi-Kerry said Iran sent all of its enriched uranium out of the country, they failed to mention that this was a swap for an equivalent amount of uranium ore that can be converted into enriched uranium in a few months.
.
President nObama said last July that the issue of Iran’s past nuclear weapons work would be addressed. The IAEA issued a report on this issue in December that said Iran failed to fully cooperate and provided some answers to investigators that were false. The report also said Iran engaged in nuclear weapons research until 2009.  Despite this report, the United States voted with other IAEA members last month to close the IAEA’s file on this issue.
.
Although nuclear deal has weak verification provisions, the Iranian parliament made them even weaker last October when it ratified an amended version of the deal containing new language on dismantling Israel’s nuclear weapons program, requiring that sanctions under the agreement be cancelled and not suspended, forbidding IAEA inspections of military installations, and barring IAEA interviews of Iranian military officers and scientists.
.
And then there is the issue of the “swap” of five American hostages for seven Iranian criminals held in U.S. prisons and the removal of 14 other Iranian criminal and terrorists from the INTERPOL wanted list.  As objectionable as this sounds, President nObama and Secretary hanoi-Kerry failed to mention that Oman paid Iran $500,000 ransom each for the release of the Americans and that several were brutally mistreated while incarcerated.  At least two other innocent Americans plus a U.S. green card holder are still being by Iran.
.
Given these factors, how can the nObama administration claim Iran has complied with the nuclear agreement?
.
How can it justify providing over $150 billion in sanctions relief that Tehran is likely to spend on terrorism and destabilizing the Middle East?
.
How can the United States reward a state that used Americans as hostages to advance its policy goals?
.
How can nObama officials say this nuclear deal is a great diplomatic success?
.
The answer to these questions is this: because the nObama administration wanted a legacy nuclear agreement with Iran so badly they made any concession necessary to get one.
.
When Iranian officials refused to give up their uranium enrichment program, the U.S. said they could keep it.
.
When Iran balked on including restrictions on ballistic missile tests in the agreement, they were removed.
.
To get around Tehran’s refusal to answer questions about its past nuclear weapons work, this issue was moved into a secret side deal between the IAEA and Iran.
.
The nObama administration also took Iran’s sponsorship of terror and its meddling in the Middle East off the table. The deal drops U.N. and EU sanctions on Iranian terrorist individuals and entities. Even worse, the U.S. encouraged Iran to play a more active role in Iraq which is driving tensions between the Shiite government and Iraqi Sunnis.
.
The Iran nuclear agreement is national security fraud. It will not stop or slow Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons.
.
The deal’s weak verification provision will not detect Iranian cheating.
.
Seeing itself as the big winner in the nuclear deal, Iran probably will beem boldened to expand its efforts to destabilize its neighbors and sponsorship of terrorism using the estimated $150 billion in sanctions relief it won in the deal.
.
How did Iran reach the nuclear deal’s Implementation Day?  Because the nObama administration rigged the game by setting the bar so low that Iranian compliance was assured.
.
That’s how desperate President nObama was to get his legacy nuclear deal with Iran.
.
That’s what led to a disastrous agreement that will may do enormous damage to international security for decades to come.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
