With pressure mounting to avert a transportation funding crisis this summer, the Obama administration Tuesday opened the door for states to collect tolls on interstate highways to raise revenue for roadway repairs.
The proposal, contained in a four-year, $302 billion White House transportation bill, would reverse a long-standing federal prohibition on most interstate tolling.

I didn’t know how right I was when I wrote on September 29, 2012 “Benghazi Worse then Watergate.”
With the release of new emails it is spectacularly worse — so bad in fact that it has made a full investigation with an impeachment trial necessary for the protection of our republic. Continue reading “New Benghazi Emails Mean Obama Impeachment Trial Must Be Launched”
Much has been written about the ongoing efforts by globalists and the international establishment to centralize political and economic power. From the European Union, the African Union, and the Union of South American States all the way to the United Nations, would-be transnational authorities are fervently seeking to consolidate and expand their power over increasingly large swaths of humanity. At the same time, though, with citizens becoming increasingly weary of being ruled by far-away, unaccountable forces, secession movements around the world are exploding.

You know why (most) cops don’t want marijuana legalized? Cause they’d have to focus on real (more dangerous) crime while they’d have a lot less to do (and more time to eat donuts). The likely result: many officers would probably be out of jobs and have to migrate to mall or amusement park security.
And in Florida, the state’s sheriffs REALLY don’t want medical marijuana entering their domain. To combat the “devil’s lettuce” threat, they’ve launched a campaign with the (super witty!) title: “Don’t Let Florida Go To Pot”. The goal: don’t let reefer madness infiltrate the Sunshine State. Continue reading “Florida Police Launch “Don’t Let Florida Go To Pot” Anti-Weed Campaign”
“There’s nothing more that needs to be done. I’m sure he has polled the owners… No owner will stand against this recommendation and vote for Sterling. If they did not do it, you would have mutiny by the players, boycotts by the fans and more dropouts from the advertisers.” Continue reading “Rev. Jesse Jackson says he would help Donald Sterling sell the team”
In a rare move, the White House is opening up about its policies on going public — or not — with cyber-security issues and online vulnerabilities.
Presidential cyber-security co-ordinator Michael Daniel has written a surprisingly candid blog post in response to the ongoing belief that the National Security Agency had actually known about the HeartBleed bug for two years, but kept its mouth shut so it could use the flaw for its own purposes. Continue reading “White House Explains Policy on Going Public With Online Security Threats”
“No-bama, no bases, no war,” chanted an angry crowd of protesters in Manila Monday, infuriated by a ten-year defense deal in which the United States promised support for the Filipino army in the event of any dispute with the country’s neighbors growing violent.
According to NBC News, the crowd paraded through the streets with several figurines that appeared constructed with the full detail of a parade float. The centerpiece of the protest, however, was a large dog with the face of the President of the Philippines, Benigno Aquino III. The dog pulled a chariot controlled by a figurine of President Barack Obama, which was burned in effigy while floating through the streets.

The G-8 may be no more as the G-7 throws every possible case of harsh language known to man at the Kremlin, which obstinately refuses to back down, while re-escalating sanctions against a Russia which merely has done what the US does every single time its national interest abroad is threatened, but one thing is becoming ever clearer: while the west isolates Russia with ever stricter measures, Russia has decided to make some new friends.

Another Mexican military incursion into the United States occurred near San Diego this month and the Obama administration is trying to cover it up, though officials at one Homeland Security agency have come forward with the startling details.
The infiltration took place a few weeks ago at a cross-border drug tunnel recently discovered by federal authorities. The U.S. Border Patrol was charged with guarding the tunnel, which runs under the U.S.-Mexico border and leads to a warehouse in Otay Mesa. A group of at least five armed Mexican military soldiers came through the tunnel on April 1 and attempted to enter California through the warehouse, according to an account posted on the Border Patrol’s local union website.

Michelle Obama wrapped up her March visit to China with a stop in Chengdu, arriving on March 25 and departing for the United States on the following day. But that one leg of the trip alone required about 900 room nights, ranging from 21 rooms beginning on March 13 for the advance team to a peak of 144 rooms when the first lady herself was at the hotel.
The documents prepared in support of the stay estimated the cost at around 1,393,500 yuan (RMB), or $222,000 at current exchange rates: Continue reading “Michelle Obama 2-Day Hotel Stay in China Costs $222K”
A week ago on April 21, 2014, the White House announced that W. Neil Eggleston, a well-known criminal defense attorney, will be Obama’s new White House counsel upon the May 2014 departure of Kathryn Ruemmler.
