Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta told a Senate committee on Wednesday that the US would “seek permission” from international organizations before committing the military to war. He also made it clear that the Obama administration does not feel it necessary to “inform” Congress or get their authorization for military action.
The administration already violated the law when, during the Libyan campaign, the president refused to seek congressional approval for continued US participation in the international coalition. This despite the fact that the War Powers Act stipulates that if US troops are committed for more than 60 days, the president must get the permission of Congress.
I fear that if people don’t already know what Obama is, they probably don’t care enough to learn now
Astonishingly, that’s just for Los Angeles County. Financing your own demographic conquest isn’t cheap.
» Obama Administration Pours Fortune Down Electric Car Boondoggles
Obama’s green looting spree is not limited to phony solar power operations. Electric cars are also a convenient means of laundering taxpayer money for political payback.
At least with boondoggles like Solyndra, massive sums of our money were poured down a drain in America. With Fisker, the drain is in Finland:
With the approval of the Obama administration, an electric car company that received a $529 million federal government loan guarantee is assembling its first line of cars in Finland, saying it could not find a facility in the United States capable of doing the work.

We buy about 80 cars a year and this is the first time in memory that we have had a car that is undriveable before it has finished our check-in process.

Alas, Georgetown is so nominally Catholic that the cost of her sex life runs to three grand – and, according to the star witness, 40 percent of female students “struggle financially” because of the heavy burden of maintaining a respectable level of pre-marital sex at a Jesuit institution.
the most basic issue here is not religious morality, individual liberty or fiscal responsibility. It’s that a society in which middle-age children of privilege testify before the most powerful figures in the land to demand state-enforced funding for their sex lives at a time when their government owes more money than anyone has ever owed in the history of the planet is quite simply nuts.
We do not need a 1st Amendment to protect popular speech.
The Australian’s editor-in-chief Chris Mitchell has had a lawyer demand the ABC pull a column by Robert Manne, who has himself complained to the media inquiry, which wants oppressive new controls on newspapers after urging from Greens leader Bob Brown, who has complained about cartoonist Paul Zanetti to the Press Council, which has told journalists not to call asylum seekers “illegal immigrants” after reprimanding Greg Sheridan, after earlier considering a complaint against him from Australians for Palestine, which is backing a complaint against Andrew Bolt, who had articles pulled from the Internet by order of the Federal Court, under the kind of vilification laws that had two pastors dragged into court over sermons monitored by people sent by the Victorian Equal Opportunity Commission, which helped an offended pagan force a settlement from a Christian mayor of the city of Casey, north of the city of Manningham, where Chinese developers have taken defamation action against councillor Stephen Mayne, who was earlier sued by broadcaster Steve Price, who was last month found to have defamed Mamdouh Habib, who earlier won another defamation action against News Ltd and had his welcome-home ceremony addressed by Keysar Trad, who lost his own defamation case against News Ltd, one of whose most senior editors is Chris Mitchell, who….

» Congress considering measures to expand access to shooting ranges
There can be no “well-regulated militia” without a large pool of proficient shooters among the citizenry. Much of that proficiency is forged at the range. This legislation can thus be considered “necessary to the security of a free state.”
it should come as no surprise that Paul’s latest supporter is not someone you’d see at the Republican National Convention, unless you saw them there protesting the presence of Sarah Palin. Who is it? It’s CODEPINK founder Medea Benjamin, who’s now on record saying: “I think Ron Paul has a remarkable position when it comes to U.S. foreign policy, and his call for no war on Iran is something that many of us support.”
Paul’s foreign policy is so far out there that the folks in CODEPINK are on board.
