of “Regulation Nation” has been experienced, as Increased Regs Forced Millions of Americans to Reconsider U.S. Citizenship. [Also, know that the Future of Computing may be Analog rather than Digital and that Bloomberg’s-latest-nanny-move-is-pushing-people-to-take-the-stairs; in a movie-update…"how Man of Steel should have ended" has been depicted and how Disney lost big-time by ignoring the-lone-ranger-creed has been explained.]
BHO’s Scandal-Sheet Noting that “it’s basically a full-time job to keep track of all the corruption in this administration,” Glenn Beck updated the NSA [focused on enemies-list intimidation], IRS [focused on conservative-group intimidation] and AG-Holder [focused on press intimidation] groupings; presumably, Benghazi-Gate will be tomorrow’s focus. NSA. Today, the House Grilled Obama Officials on Govt. Surveillance., and a Federal Court Overturned a Block on NDAA Indefinite Detention, so Americans can legally be kidnapped and held without trial; the possibility was raised that the Embattled [FISA] secret court may not spill secrets after all. A detailed timeline of NSA surveillance of Americans has been compiled, and it was claimed that PRISM is one of the most ‘benign things’ the NSA is doing. Foreign Governments Are allegedly Spying On Americans’ Communications, although the UK spy agency claimed it did not illegally use any such data. Such Internet-Fascism-and-the-Surveillance-State triggered condemnation from the aclu [claiming nsasurveillance-is-intrusive-and-unconstitutional] and even from jimmy-carter [claiming-america-no-longerhas-a-functioning-democracy [this is two-in-a-row]. As a result, amash-introduced-a-defense-billamendment-seeking-to-defund-overbroad-nsa-surveillance; attempting to remain relevant, Lindsey Graham advised that America should boycott the Olympics if Russia grants asylum to Snowden. IRS. Today, an IRS lawyer said superiors in the chief counsel’ office told him applications would be reviewed because of potential political activity, documenting targeting; thus, an OBAMA APPOINTEE WAS INVOLVED IN IRS TARGETING OF TEA PARTY. The chilling-effect was obvious, for tea-party-groupswere-targeted-as-an-example-by-carter-c-hull, prompting-members-of-other-groups-to-be-afraid-tosend-in-donations. Of local interest, in Court on Friday, IRS statements in Z ST v IRS were revealed as FALSE.
Bullet-Points - International Iranian-Nukes. Nuclear Tensions Heating Up Between Israel and Iran; they must be stopped ASAP, for apocalyptic Threats Cannot be Hoped Away. International Terrorism. The Yemen-based branch of al-Qaida confirmed on Wednesday that the group's No. 2 figure, a former Guantanamo Bay prisoner, was killed in a U.S. drone strike. Counterpointing this achievement is the fact that the BROTHER OF AFGHAN NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER WAS SHOT DEAD. England. BRITAIN IS EXPORTING ARMS TO RIGHTS VIOLATORS [Syria, Iran and China]; the QUEEN APPROVED GAY MARRIAGE. Pakistan. Nobel Peace Prize nominee Malala Yousefzai spoke at the UN headquarters in New York last Friday on her 16th birthday; it was her first public speech since she was attacked last October by the Taliban. The young activist said the Taliban’s attack strengthened her resolve to fight for women’s education, and asserted the Taliban are afraid of educated women. Women’s education is a pressing issue: The BBC estimates a quarter of the world’s women do not receive basic education. After her speech, the leader of the Taliban wrote Malala a letter attacking its contents. Samantha Power. She is a disaster for, as Ambassador, she would continue BHOi's disastrous U.N. policy, as per these videos; perhaps to soften-the-blow, she criticized the UN’s ‘unacceptable’ anti-Israel bias. Israel. The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) had written to the State Department urging that its error about eastern Jerusalem be corrected and not be repeated; the ZOA thanked the State Department for its immediate correction. [The U.S. Department of State has corrected the error in its press release issued on June 10, 2013 - entitled "U.S. Department of State Announces Museums Connect Cultural Exchange 2013 Awardees" - in which it wrongly identified "East Jerusalem" as part of the "Palestinian Territories." The press release now states that the Palestinian Heritage Museum is located in "Jerusalem."] Noting that vandals-desecrated-tomb-of-patriarchs-in-hebron, a terse slide-show illustrates who Else Is Being Injured by the Vilification of Israel. Meanwhile, kerry’s-illusion-ofmomentum-in-the-peace-process-with-the-palestinians was exposed; for example, the Arab World is conducting a Ramadan Hate-Fest and Hamas on Wednesday rejected Fatah's deadline for reconciliation and criticized its rival's "selectivity" in implementing national unity. It has gotten to the point where Israel is Taking Directions from China Rather than Obama. Finally, the EU Blew-Up Israeli-Palestinian Talks due to its new directive that denies Israeli sovereignty in East Jerusalem [including the Old City] and which bars the EU from funding or cooperating with Israeli institutions in East Jerusalem or the West Bank.
Bullet-Points – Ongoing National Immigration “Reform.” Boehner-endorsed-a-gop-push-for-citizenship-for-children-of-illegal-immigrants [which Cantor considers to be the 'Compassionate' thing to do.], as ICE Agents Say DREAM Act is being applied to adult inmates in prisons and Tea-party-protesters-threatened-to-bring-down-boehner-if-hesupports-amnesty; meanwhile, despite amnesty push, Rubio raked in $3 million in second-quarter fundraising (although Politico reportedly will write that he is now “wobbly and weak”). Sensing support
for the Senate's immigration bill is losing momentum and anticipating the fierce resistance against the bill during the August recess, at least 100 House-Republicans are going to be targeted by the Gang of Eight and Big Business [via Ryan], despite the fact that the Senate measure would devastate the wages of working class Americans of all races and backgrounds. They would just assume ignore ongoing crime [Illegal Alien Deported 11 Times Arrested with 220 Pounds of Pot and illegal-alien-dragged-paralyzedwoman-from-wheelchair-and-raped-her].
ObamaCare. A union-letter-claimed-ObamaCare-will-destroy-the-very-health-and-wellbeing-of-workers and a SURVEY concluded that 74% of small businesses will fire workers and/or cut hours; indeed, ObamaCare-could-cause-1-million-low-income-americans-to-move-from-work-to-welfare and an ObamaCare Contractor Overbilled UK 'Tens of Millions of Pounds.' Nevertheless, CARNEY claimed ObamaCare reduces full-time hiring is 'belied by facts' as Thune and Alexander Questioned Secretary Duncan on Education Department’s Role in ObamaCare Implementation. Finally, the NY-Times FALSELY claimed Health Plan Cost for New Yorkers were Set to Fall 50%; while the rates will fall overall, applesto-apples comparisons are impossible from this year to next because all of the plans are essentially new insurance products [and because rates for youth will rise]. Politics. Liz Cheney has discussed Her Wyoming Roots And Decision To Run against Mike Enzi, as her Senate Bid Exposed GOP Schism; the old-boy-network-united-against-her in what some suggest may have lit a GOP Civil War. In my view, Enzi’s having championed the Internet Tax is problematic, and reinforcing this atmospheric [nationally] are polling data suggesting sarah-palin-trumps-miller-andtreadwell-for-alaska’s-u-s-senate seat. [Un]employment. Disability Insurance Is Now a Form of Extended Unemployment Insurance, and the Number of PA residents getting disability is up 50% during past decade. Although the libs would advise D.C. to stand up to Wal-Mart, cooler heads have noted that the D.C. Government Fails to Pay 'Living Wage' Required of WALMART.
Bullet-Points – Sporadic National Faux-Filibuster. BHO-and-D’s-celebrated-win-over-gop-on-nominations, as Republicans Got Filibusted; BHO will swap two NLRB-nominees, but in no instance were any POLICY changes exacted [such as a pledge not to push Card-Check…even as a third court overturned BHO’s recess appointments. That’s why Business Insider described this as a win for Democrats, even as pro-business-groups-[lamely?]declared-victory-in-filibuster-fight. One pundit declared this gop-filibuster-defeat-didn’t-change-much, and 3-reasons-the-senate-didnt-go-nuclear were promulgated. Ultimately, it is felt that the Senate holds on to the filibuster because its power lies chiefly in its ability to withhold consent. The savinggrace for the GOP, perhaps, is the confirmation that—for now—the ambient “culture” is against expansion of this threat beyond administrative nominees [to legislation and/or to judicial choices]. In an obvious political stretch, it was even suggested that the stridency of Ted Cruz has helped BHO galvanize support. Domestic-Terrorism. The Rolling_stone’s_“dzhokhar”_cover has prompted cvs-to-stop-selling-it; celebs went ballistic and malkin-claimed-it-feeds-al-qaeda-propaganda, while Politico defended it. School Choice. California refuses to institute teacher performance evaluations, for the children.
Farm Bill. Farm bill conference with Senate will await food stamp bill. Energy. While environmentalists-claimed-keystone-xl-will-raise-gas-prices, it was reported that northdakota-had-hit-its-oil-peak. Martin/Zimmerman. Not surprisingly, NPR MISLED ON 'STAND YOUR GROUND.' Angela Corey is the granddaughter of Syrian immigrants; a blogger maintains what-really-killed-trayvon-was-failing-schools. Were AG-Holder to prosecute him, it would constitute DOUBLE JEOPARDY. As a Makeshift Billboard Hanging Over a Detroit Highway was inflammatory ['F*** ZIMMERMAN'], it was advised, simply that TO AVOID LOOKING LIKE A CRIMINAL, DON'T COMMIT A CRIME. Media. CNN's 'New Day' Tops MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' in Key Demo During First Month. Olbermann Will Be Contractually Barred from Talking About Politics on his late-nite ESPN show.
Bullet-Points – Pennsylvania/Regional OPM [“Other People’s Money]. Clarke advised that a new tax should fund pensions and schools. Voter ID. The trial is in day-2. Sports. Lee worked one inning for NL in All-Star Game, and Brown has 'unbelievable' experience in Midsummer Classic in NY; reportly, Foles Outplayed Vick in Minicamp, OTAs Corbett. In a national article that may have been sparked by a statewide article, it was reported that Pennsylvania-republicans-are-looking-to-push-out-their-governor; the impetus to do so is enhanced when it is discovered that earmarks-rose-in-new-budget. Fitzpatrick. fitzpatrick-recognized-for-protecting-national-parks. Unions. There is an ongoing need to achieve paunionreform. Look-Alikes. AG-Kane ousted Barry Feudale from grand jury role; note his resemblance with Sestak.
