The Dumbest Lawyer In The US Says Raid Was Legal
The guy who wants to prosecute a SEAL for slapping a terrorist and put Chaney and Bush in prison for the water boarding that provided the intel for the killing of Bin Laden, says the raid was perfectly legal. President Obama can invade another country and kill a foreign national, steal the body, and abduct family members. This has now been uncovered in the Constitution and confirmed by our Attorney General Eric Holder.
The president is granted special privileges with Seal Team 6 and according to Holder, he but not Bush, can do no wrong. Oh, for the record, Seal Team 6, was called Chaney’s Execution Squad during the Bush Administration.
Hezbollah Sets Up Base Near Mexican Border
A terrorist organization whose home base is in the Middle Easthas established another home base across the border in Mexico.
“They are recognized by many experts as the ‘A’ team of Muslim terrorist organizations,” a former U.S. intelligence agent told 10News.
The former agent, referring to Shi’a Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah, added, “They certainly have had successes in big-ticket bombings.”
Some of the group’s bombings include the U.S. embassy in Beirut and Israeli embassy in Argentina.
Only ‘proof’ of Bin Laden death to be worn on T-Shirts?
In the end the only picture we will likely ever see as “proof” of a dead Osama bin Laden will be the one on “Obama Killed Osama” T-shirts. Call it the epitaph of the trendy junk society in which we’re now living.
The advent of the Junk Society was all but inevitable once politicians of the day were able to successfully junk the truth.
Failing Grades on Civics Exam Called a ‘Crisis’
Fewer than half of American eighth graders knew the purpose of the Bill of Rights on the most recent national civics examination, and only one in 10 demonstrated acceptable knowledge of the checks and balances among the legislative, executive and judicial branches, according to test results released on Wednesday.
Richardson: Bin Laden death should lead to cap-and-trade
Former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson hopes that Osama bin Laden‘s death will spur President Barack Obama to promote climate change legislation.
“My hope is that from this success in the foreign policy arena two days ago, that he will be emboldened to take once again to the Congress legislation – not just to increase a renewable energy standard – but climate change legislation that this country and the world need,” Richardson said Tuesday at a Climate Leadership Gala hosted by the Earth Day Network in Washington.
Climate change legislation, particularly anything labeled as toxic as “cap and trade,” is seen as non-starter while Republicans hold the House and many Senate Democrats are wary of the issue. But Richardson warned climate bill backers against standing on the sidelines.
“We can sit back and say, ‘Well we’ll wait until the next election, wait until the political climate is better.’ You know if we do that, we’re doomed – if we don’t take action right away,” he said.
The former energy secretary and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations in the Clinton administration called for a comprehensive nationwide greenhouse gas reduction program in addition to a national renewable energy standard.
Richardson suggested Obama offer Congress two options: an economy-wide cap-and-trade program with stringent timetables over several decades and a carbon tax. And if Congress fails to do either of those, EPA must plow ahead with climate change regulations, he said.
“I’m still one of those who supports cap and trade, but it’s good I believe to offer choices,” he said.
