Obama Uses Taxpayer Dollars to Buy Popularity for Himself at UN Meeting


by Cathie Adams President, Texas Eagle Forum Eagle Forum UN Issues Chairman

December 11, 2015




President Barack Obama’s legacy to fundamentally transform America was on the global stage the first two weeks of December in Paris, France at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). His weapon was the radical green agenda and American taxpayers were his victims.

Obama’s Clean Power Plan Fits Within the UN Scheme, Opposed by Congress

Obama wants our energy prices to skyrocket. Last August, in preparation for the UN meeting, he proposed his Clean Power Plan that mandates a 32% percent reduction by the year 2030 for CO2 “pollution,” and mandates oil and natural gas companies to mitigate 45% of methane

FDR Was Trump on Steroids


Liberal icon targeted Germans, Italians, and Japanese in wartime.

So Donald Trump saying that there should be a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States” makes him some sort of crazy, dangerous guy?

If liberals — and even, astonishingly — some Republicans believe this? Wow. What in the world to then make of President Franklin D. Roosevelt? FDR, if one takes in the current wisdom, was Trump on steroids.

For those who read history, and alas, perhaps lots of people who should do not, there was FDR in the aftermath of Pearl Harbor and the entrance of the U.S. into war with Germany, Italy, and Japan

Petri Bill to Re-Assign Duties of Jury Commissioners Passes Committee

HARRISBURG – By a unanimous vote, the House Judiciary Committee today advanced legislation by Rep. Scott Petri (R-Bucks) that would close a loophole in state law that could be exploited by criminal defendants as a means to escape prosecution.


“Act 4 of 2013, which permits counties to abolish of the office of jury commissioner, still assigns certain responsibilities to this office, even though it no longer exists or will soon be eliminated,” said Petri. “Those responsibilities include

Senate Budget Charts an Unsustainable Course with Budget


From the Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania-CAP

On Monday, December 7th, the Pennsylvania Senate passed two significant pieces of legislation. The first was a budget that grew spending at 6 percent, well over the rate of inflation plus population growth. The fact that there is no way to pay for this spending increase without a tax hike is equally concerning. This budget made no attempt to “trim the fat”. Instead, the budget increased expenditures on some very questionable line items.

Does the education bill fund Planned Parenthood?


By Robert Romano at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

On Dec. 2, the House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved 359 to 64 the so-called “Every Student Succeeds Act,” a reauthorization and amendment of the “Elementary Secondary Education Act of 1965” providing federal funds to states and cities for public schools.

As we were analyzing the text of the conference report hours before the vote, Section 8035 was brought to Americans for Limited Government’s attention that it could open up a new funding stream for groups like Planned Parenthood.

At a time the House was voting to defund Planned Parenthood via the budget reconciliation process in light of despite explosive video showing organization employees talking about selling the body parts

A Brief History of Wolf’s Tax Hikes


by NATHAN BENEFIELD at the Commonwealth Foundation

Yesterday, the State House of Representatives announced they were moving off the latest Wolf tax hike proposal and onto a new plan that called for less spending and fewer new taxes. Moving away from broad-based tax hikes—for which there is little support—is the right move for Pennsylvania families.

Here’s some background.

Tax Hike Proposal #1

In his budget address, Gov. Tom Wolf proposed a massive $4.6 billion tax hike, with a net increase of about $1,400 per family of four. Every income group would have paid higher taxes under Wolf’s plan.

This proposal was never introduced in the

Congress must stop Team Obama’s plan to radically reengineer America’s neighborhoods


By from Fox News

The Obama administration’s Housing & Urban Development department is embarking on a social engineering experiment that wipes out one of the fundamental functions of local government – making neighborhood zoning decisions.

Through its Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) regulation, the president is seeking to diminish both liberty and local autonomy – hoping to supplant the foundational American ideal of equality of opportunity with the far left’s vision of imposed egalitarian outcomes.

Liberals Hate This Response To Black Lives Matter


by Andrew McNealy – at Citizen Action

Looks like #BlackLivesMatter has some competition: white college students organizing on campus to make their voice heard, too.

In response to the race-related protests that have rocked schools nationwide, especially at places like Yale and the University of Missouri, white students at the University of California, Santa Barbara have formed a new “UCSB White Student Union” in order to show just how ridiculous segregating every issue by race is.
