How much longer can Obama and Holder protect each other? By: Jeffrey Klein

Barack Obama was compelled by media and bi-partisan Congressional force majeure to take the podium for a televised White House press conference this morning, to address, among other things, the apparent stonewalling being triangulated by the White House, CIA and DOJ, which is derailing investigations being conducted by both House and Senate Intelligence committees, regarding the parade of classified information leaks over the past two months.

Yesterday, in a now rare display of political unity and moral integrity, Rep. Mike Rogers R-MI and Rep. C.A. “Dutch” Ruppersberger D-MD , the Chairman and ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, who were joined by Sen. Dianne Feinstein D-CA and Sen. Saxby Chambliss R-GA , the Chairwoman and Vice-Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, held a joint press conference demanding White House action on the matter, according to an Associated Press article this morning.

“There has been just a cascade of leaks coming out of the intelligence community in the last several weeks and months,” the vice chairman of the Senate intelligence committee, Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss told reporters. “It’s our clear intention to put a stop to this.”

Over the past several months a series of explicitly detailed media reports have emerged, regarding everything from White House policy on the highly classified targeting of Al Q20da militants by drones and raids, White House directed deployment known as “Stuxnet,” a cyber-weapon that injects malicious computer code, which knocked out Iranian nuclear processing centrifuges, and President Obama’s participation in producing terrorist “kill lists.”

More lies coming to light.
We need to keep shining the light on this lying asshole.

This is another agency that is a waste of money and should be disbanded.
The EPA has done more to retard the private sector than any other government agency in my opinion.

They make shit up as they go.

Congress calls out the EPA

by Jazz Shaw

One group in Congress which doesn’t get nearly enough attention in the media is the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology and, in particular, the Subcommittee on Energy and Environment. Their chairman, Andy Harris (R-MD) sent a letter to the EPA this week which was probably long overdue. In it, he calls on EPA chair Lisa Jackson to explain what he identifies as a very disturbing pattern of behavior when it comes to natural gas drilling and the agency’s somewhat “casual” approach to science.

Subcommittee on Energy and Environment Chairman Andy Harris (R-MD) today sent a letter to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa Jackson requesting information and documents related to the Agency’s activities with respect to hydraulic fracturing.

The letter outlines concerns over “EPA’s confusing and questionable approach to hydraulic fracturing,” summarizing three highly publicized instances in which the EPA leapt to scientific conclusions before having all the facts, only to later retract or revise its claims.

“These examples, while individually very troubling, collectively suggest EPA is not objectively pursuing an improved understanding of the relationship between hydraulic fracturing and drinking water,” Chairman Harris says in the letter. Instead, Harris asserts that EPA “is determined to find fault with the technology in order to justify sweeping new regulations.”

Not only would they affect the United States’ freedoms, but would also prevent developing countries from accessing the internet at all. I think it is just another attempt by the UN to limit free speech and get more funds from the US.

The UN needs to be disbanded entirely. They’re useless. They don’t prevent shit. All they do is infringe on the sovereignty of member nations, and attempt to bring the US down to third world status.

Any politician that sides with the UN, needs to be fired.

U.N. could tax U.S.-based Web sites, leaked docs show

Global Internet tax suggested by European network operators, who want Apple, Google, and other Web companies to pay to deliver content, is proposed for debate at a U.N. agency in December.

The United Nations is considering a new Internet tax targeting the largest Web content providers, including Google, Facebook, Apple, and Netflix, that could cripple their ability to reach users in developing nations.

The European proposal, offered for debate at a December meeting of a U.N. agency called the International Telecommunication Union, would amend an existing telecommunications treaty by imposing heavy costs on popular Web sites and their network providers for the privilege of serving non-U.S. users, according to newly leaked documents.

The documents (No. 1 No. 2) punctuate warnings that the Obama administration and Republican members of Congress raised last week about how secret negotiations at the ITU over an international communications treaty could result in a radical re-engineering of the Internet ecosystem and allow governments to monitor or restrict their citizens’ online activities.

“It’s extremely worrisome,” Sally Shipman Wentworth, senior manager for public policy at the Internet Society, says about the proposed Internet taxes. “It could create an enormous amount of legal uncertainty and commercial uncertainty.”

House committee schedules contempt vote against Holder

By Sharyl Attkisson

(CBS News) CBS News has learned the House Oversight Committee will vote next week on whether to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. It’s the fourth time in 30 years that Congress has launched a contempt action against an executive branch member.

This time, the dispute stems from Holder failing to turn over documents subpoenaed on October 12, 2011 in the Fast and Furious “gunwalking” investigation.

The Justice Department has maintained it has cooperated fully with the congressional investigation, turning over tens of thousands of documents and having Holder testify to Congress on the topic at least eight times.

However, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., says the Justice Department has refused to turn over tens of thousands of pages of documents. Those include materials created after Feb. 4, 2011, when the Justice Department wrote a letter to Congress saying no gunwalking had occurred. The Justice Department later retracted the denial.
