The litigants battling the Obama Administration’s new climate rule wrote:

“The rule’s restructuring of nearly every state’s electric grid would exceed even the authority that Congress gave to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the federal agency responsible for electricity regulation.”

We need to get behind and support the fight against these sweeping regulations that are purportedly being effected in the name of “climate change.”

The Hill: The dozens of states and energy companies suing to stop the Obama administration’s climate change rule for power plants are calling it a “breathtaking expansion” of the federal government’s power.

The litigants, led by West Virginia and a coalition of electric utility, lobbed their opening volley in federal court Friday night with their initial brief on the merits of their case.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) rule, dubbed the Clean Power Plan, is already on hold, thanks to a surprise Supreme Court order earlier this month.

But the opponents of the regulation must still make their case on the merits, starting in the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, where the Friday brief was filed.

Their arguments in the 192-page initial brief focus heavily on their position that the EPA has stepped outside the bounds of its authority under the Clean Air Act to limit pollution.


GEORGE SOROS WANTS TO DUMB DOWN OUR POPULATION - We Apparently are Falling into His Trap

Companies Can't Fire People Because of ObamaCare Costs - HUH?

by Gary DeMar

“Obama officials made clear in a press briefing that firms would not be allowed to lay off workers to get into the preferred class of those businesses with 50 to 99 employees. . . . Firms will be required to certify to the IRS – under penalty of perjury – that ObamaCare was not a motivating factor in their staffing decisions. To avoid ObamaCare costs you must swear that you are not trying to avoid ObamaCare costs.”
Once again, power has been deferred to the IRS where the Fifth Amendment does not apply and the agency is lawless with the tacit approval of the President. Try pleading the Fifth when you sign your tax return.
Then there’s the EEOC, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. People who are fired for whatever reason will have cause to appeal to the EEOC. I can tell you from personal business experience, it’s an expensive and time consuming enterprise, even if you win like my company did.
You know it had to happen. Once the government got control of our healthcare (we were warned), there wouldn’t be any area that it would not be involved in. Once people get used to the idea of government regulating their lives in small areas where they do not believe the law will adversely affect them, they will acquiesce in more significant areas where they will be negatively affected.

“The paternal state not only feeds its children, but nurtures, educates, comforts, and disciplines them, providing all they need for their security. This appears to be a mildly insulting way to treat adults, but it is really a great crime because it transforms the state from being a gift of God, given to protect us against violence, into an idol. It supplies us with all blessings, and we look to it for all our needs. Once we sink to that level, as [C.S.] Lewis says, there is no point in telling state officials to mind their own business. “Our whole lives are their business.”[1]
“The paternalism of the state is that of the bad parent who wants his children dependent on him forever. That is an evil impulse. The good parent prepares his children for independence, trains them to make responsible decisions, knows that he harms them by not helping them to break loose. The paternal state thrives on dependency. When the dependents free themselves, it loses power. It is, therefore, parasitic on the very persons whom it turns into parasites. Thus, the state and its dependents march symbiotically [in close union with one another] to destruction.”[2]
It was President Obama who said, “That’s the good thing about being president. I can do whatever I want.”


Obama: ‘As a president, I can do whatever I want’


During a Monday visit to Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s Virginia home, President Barack Obama declared that, as president, he “can do whatever” he wants.

The statement was presumably intended as a joke.

“At 4:45 [Obama] and [visiting French President Francois] Hollande walked out from a portico and strolled in Front of your pool with Leslie Bowman, president of the Monticello Foundation,” wrote French journalist Tangi Quéméner in the presidential “pool report” distributed to journalists Monday afternoon. “Looking at a terrace she said that Jefferson loved to admire the landscape from there. [Obama] said that he’d like to take a look and seemed delighted to ‘break the protocol.’”
“‘That’s the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want,’ he quipped, walking to the terrace with his guest and Ms. Bowman.”

Obama’s guest on Monday was embattled French President Francois Hollande, who is unpopular at home and embroiled in a sex scandal.

Jefferson was a noted Francophile and served as the American ambassador to France after the Revolutionary War.

Obama stoned during Olympics interview with Bob Costas

On Friday, a sleepy-eyed President Obama was interviewed with fluff questions by NBC’s Bob Costas a few minutes into coverage of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. A number of viewers later said the president appeared to be stoned, Twitchy reported.

“President Obama looks exhausted. Or stoned. Is he in Colorado?” one person asked.

“Obama looks as high as a kite on @NBCOlympics,” another person tweeted.

“Obama is stoned for sure,” added Twitter user “Mother of Dragons.”

While a search revealed a number of people on Twitter shared the same concern, one person said otherwise.

“Folks, without seeing Obama’s eyes fully open, you can’t tell if he’s stoned. Let’s use some brain cells!” tweeted “Stuck in New England.”

One person sarcastically said the real question is: “When is Obama not stoned?”

Costas asked the president why no high-ranking U.S. official would be at the Olympics in Sochi, prompting Obama to complain that he has not attended any Olympic games during his administration.

“Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to go to the Olympics since I’ve been president,” he said.

Obama said Janet Napolitano and other “wonderful Americans” would represent the United States at the winter games.

Costas also asked about U.S. working with Russia, reminding Obama that he promised to “reset” relations with the nation.

After mentioning Syria and other issues, Costas said it appears Vladimir Putin is the one doing the resetting.

Obama said there have been “ups and downs” in the relationship between the two leaders, adding that Putin seems to look bored in public interviews, calling it his “schtick.”

It’s not the first time Obama has been accused of using drugs while in the White House. Some, for example, have suggested the president was high on cocaine the night of the Benghazi terrorist attack.

Smoking marijuana= the dumbing down of America


People take drugs because they want to change something about their lives.

Here are some of the reasons young people have given for taking drugs:

To fit in
To escape or relax
To relieve boredom
To seem grown up
To rebel
To experiment
They think drugs are a solution. But eventually, the drugs become the problem.

Difficult as it may be to face one’s problems, the consequences of drug use are always worse than the problem one is trying to solve with them. The real answer is to get the facts and not to take drugs in the first place.

Drugs are essentially poisons. The amount taken determines the effect.

A small amount acts as a stimulant (speeds you up). A greater amount acts as a sedative (slows you down). An even larger amount poisons and can kill.

This is true of any drug. Only the amount needed to achieve the effect differs.

But many drugs have another liability: they directly affect the mind. They can distort the user’s perception of what is happening around him or her. As a result, the person’s actions may be odd, irrational, inappropriate and even destructive.

Drugs block off all sensations, the desirable ones with the unwanted. So, while providing short-term help in the relief of pain, they also wipe out ability and alertness and muddy one’s thinking.

Medicines are drugs that are intended to speed up or slow down or change something about the way your body is working, to try to make it work better. Sometimes they are necessary. But they are still drugs: they act as stimulants or sedatives, and too much can kill you. So if you do not use medicines as they are supposed to be used, they can be as dangerous as illegal drugs.

Normally, when a person remembers something, the mind is very fast and information comes to him quickly. But drugs blur memory, causing blank spots. When a person tries to get information through this cloudy mess, he can’t do it. Drugs make a person feel slow or stupid and cause him to have failures in life. And as he has more failures and life gets harder, he wants more drugs to help him deal with the problem.

One lie told about drugs is that they help a person become more creative. The truth is quite different.

Someone who is sad might use drugs to get a feeling of happiness, but it does not work. Drugs can lift a person into a fake kind of cheerfulness, but when the drug wears off, he or she crashes even lower than before. And each time, the emotional plunge is lower and lower. Eventually, drugs will completely destroy all the creativity a person has.

“During the whole time I was on drugs I thought I had control over my life and that I had it great. But I destroyed everything I had built up and fought for in my life. I cut ties to all my drug-free friends and my family, so I hadn’t any friends but my drug mates. Every day revolved around one thing: my plan for getting the money I needed for drugs. I would do everything possible to get my amphetamine—it was the only thing in my life.” —Pat

“I felt that I was more fun when I was drunk. Soon after [I started drinking] I was introduced to marijuana . . . . Later, I was hanging out at a friend’s house smoking marijuana when someone pulled out a bag of cocaine. Snorting cocaine quickly became a daily habit. I was stealing money from my parents’ business and from my grandparents on a daily basis to support my alcohol, cocaine, marijuana and LSD habits. Then I was introduced to OxyContin and began using it on a regular basis. By the time I realized I was addicted, snorting OxyContin was part of my daily routine. I needed something stronger—and was introduced to heroin. I would stop at nothing to get high. My addiction was winning. And every time I tried to kick it, the physical craving would send me back for more.” —Edith

The conversation were not having

BY KAREN BAILEY – Special to The Tampa Tribune

In September 2011, I lost my son to a drug overdose. He was a typical homegrown Florida boy who admired Bobby Bowden, Tony Dungy and Tim Tebow. He had a huge heart and enjoyed playing football, wakeboarding on the lake, and riding four-wheelers in the mud.

Unfortunately, he also liked to smoke pot. His attitude toward marijuana was like that of many people who are in favor of legalizing it. He viewed it as a natural rite of passage, safer than alcohol, and something that would soon be legal. It is only after burying him that I see how dangerous this point of view can be. Florida should not legalize marijuana because it is a gateway- drug that is addictive and damaging to the teenage brain. Moreover, without FDA regulation there is no way to monitor the drug’s potency.

Marijuana can lead a person to experiment with more dangerous drugs. Although this isn’t always die case, sadly it was my son’s case.

In one of the last conversations I had with him, he shared with me that his addiction to prescription pills had started with marijuana. He told me that he initially smoked pot because it lowered his inhibitions when socializing. He then fell into the habit of taking pills in order to maintainthe buzz he got from pot.

Those pills became an addiction he could not control, and ultimately they took his precious life.

According to the latest survey released by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 60 percent of teenagers do not think marijuana is harmful. But there is ample evidence that marijuana is addictive and damaging to the undeveloped teenage brain.

According to a study published in Experiential and Clinical Psychopharmaeology, one in six children become addicted to marijuana after using it just once.
My son shared with me that he first tried marijuana in middle school. Ninety percent of addictions startup the teenage years.

Addiction can happen at any age. However, the best reason of all not to legalize marijuana would be the fact that the human brain is not fully developed until the age of 25.

New research by Asaf Keller, Ph.D., University of Maryland, finds that marijuana can cause permanent brain abnormalities in adolescence. Marijuana use in these formative years can lower a person’s IQ by as many as eight points, according to an August 2013 report by the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

My other major concern with legalized medical marijuana in Florida is the lack of regulation from the FDA. Levels of THC (the active ingredient in pot) have risen from 4 percent in 1980 to 15 percent in 2012. So marijuana is far more potent than ever.

There is no quality or dosage control in the proposed ballot initiative to legalize medical pot in Florida, so there would be no way to prevent sales to minors or to stop diversion to minors. There is also no way to assure legitimate use of medical marijuana. If it becomes legal, how many teens will use it simply to get high, versus to treat a medical condition?

My mother was a tenacious Hatfield raised in the Appalachia Mountains of West Virginia. She had a rare spinal tumor that left her bedridden the last four years of her life. My family understands the need for pain management during difficult medical circumstances, but there are other, already approved medical options for them.

We also understand our children are our biggest asset, and we owe it to them to ensure they have a chance at a bright future. I have seen and lived with the damage marijuana can do.

Saying “no” to legalizing marijuana in Florida does not make us a less compassionate or loving state.

It is out of love for our children, for those like my son, that we must say no.
