Obama’s Amnesty Threatens To Shut Constitution

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Pundits warn that a funding fight over the president’s move to grant de facto amnesty to illegal aliens threatens a politically risky government shutdown. But there’s something much more important at stake here.

  The Founders had good reason to give Congress the power of the purse: Short of impeachment, it’s the most effective way to stop a lawless president from disobeying the will of Congress and usurping powers not granted by the Constitution.

  The question is: Will Congress use this power to thwart President Obama’s shredding of the Constitution with his executive amnesty plan? “

 

 

Even some renowned liberals are recognizing the threat to our Constitution posed by “King Obama’s” unilateral action …

 

 

” There’s more at stake here than mere political fortunes. We are at the constitutional tipping point that Georgetown University law professor Jonathan Turley warned us about as Obama continues to wield executive authority that he himself once said he did not have.

  We live in a constitutional republic, and the president who says he cannot wait for the Congress to act ignores a Constitution that says he has to. Article I, Section 8 gives Congress exclusive authority to “establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization” and Article II, Section 3 says that it’s the president’s duty “to take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”

  Professor Turley told the House Judiciary Committee at a Dec. 3 hearing that Obama’s abuse of executive power has grown to the point that “he’s becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid.” “

Those Ebola Vaccines in Testing Now? You Can Thank Dick Cheney for That

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Democrats looking to blame Republicans for the lack of an Ebola vaccine may owe Dick Cheney an apology.

  It turns out that as vice president, Cheney was the driving force behind more funding for the National Institutes of Health that helped lead to the development of Ebola vaccines being tested today.

  From the time scientists first discovered the deadly virus in 1976 to 2012, two dozen outbreaks of Ebola claimed the lives of roughly 1,500 people–far less than the nearly 5,000 killed in the current outbreak in West Africa.

  Bloomberg News reports that little money had been available to scientists to work on finding a cure to the disease. But after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Cheney, anticipating the potential for bioterrorist attacks, became the Bush White House’s point man advocating more spending to protect the nation from deadly pathogens.

  Cheney told Bloomberg:

 It has ramifications when the source of the problem you’re dealing with is something like an outbreak of Ebola, but our prime motivation was to make certain we were prepared to deal with an attempt to use those substances in an attack. “

 

  Since 2001, the National Institutes of Health’s budget to study biodefense measures has increased from $53 million to $1.6 billion. “

Who Is John Galt ?

 

 

 

” Atlas Shrugged tells the compelling story of a country whose economic system is on the brink of collapse. Who is John Galt?

Ayn Rand is widely considered one of the most influential and controversial authors of the 20th Century. Rand’s magnum opus, Atlas Shrugged, was published in 1957. Thirty-five years later, a Library of Congress survey reported that Atlas Shrugged was the second most influential novel ever written – second only to the Bible.

For decades, her books have inspired millions while at the same time sparking vigorous debate in social, and at times, political circles.

What has made Atlas Shrugged withstand the test of time, and continue to sell hundreds of thousands of books every year, is just how relevant people find the message of the book to what they’re experiencing today. Amazingly, it is incredible word-of-mouth alone that continues to drive sales.

 

 

A message from Producer John Aglialoro

I purchased the rights to Atlas Shrugged back in 1992 because Atlas Shrugged touched my life – in more ways than I can count. If you too have been touched by Rand’s work, if you feel an impact has made on your life as a direct result of reading her works, this is your moment to say ‘thank you’ and help spread the message of Atlas.” – John Aglialoro, Producer

Climategate Leaker: Civilization Is Being Destroyed By Lying ‘Science’ Elitists

 

 

 

” “What if climate change appears to be just mainly a multi-decadal natural fluctuation? They’ll kill us probably.”

This private musing between two climate scientist colleagues first surfaced along with a whole raft of embarrassing material in 2011, when the anonymous Climategate leaker who calls himself “Mr. FOIA” leaked his second set of emails from Britain’s disgraced Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia. Now, Mr. FOIA has emerged for a third time, sharing with the world not only his entire batch of 220,000 encrypted emails and documents but also, for the first time, his thoughts.

Mr. FOIA had previously released two batches of 5,000 files each in 2009 and 2011. This enormous third batch went to a network of friends for decoding, sorting and publication.”

A Sharp Rise in Retractions Prompts Calls for Reform

“The journal wound up retracting six of the papers from the author, Naoki Mori of the University of the Ryukyus in Japan. And it soon became clear that Infection and Immunity was hardly the only victim of Dr. Mori’s misconduct. Since then, other scientific journals have retracted two dozen of his papers, according to the watchdog blog Retraction Watch.”
