    “Anyone who sees this as a step in the right direction should remember that President Obama still supports energy-rationing policies to address global warming that would cause electricity prices to, in his own words, ‘necessarily skyrocket’ and would require gas prices of at least seven dollars a gallon according to a recent Harvard study,” said Ebell. “I guess when gas hits seven dollars as a result of Obama’s policies, Americans can take comfort in the fact that a bit more of it is being produced in the U.S.” By the way, the new automobile fuel-economy rules include a CO2 limit as well. Nor is it clear that the out-of-control California Air Resources Board has actually signed up to the deal, and, even if they do, the state is likely to ask the EPA for another waiver so that the state can impose more stringent rules almost immediately. Can anyone foresee Obama’s EPA failing to grant that? 04/01 10:07 AM

    The Declaration of Independence’s proclamation that “all men are created equal” with “unalienable rights” to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” has proved to be happily elastic. It still sings to us today, thanks to the struggles and sacrifices of many Americans who gave blacks and women the equality denied to them in 1776. In contrast, the early Progressives’ talk of an “industrial age” and an outmoded Constitution sounds like the language of an age now long past. Their faith in centralized planning seems naive in a time when one unpredicted innovation after another has changed lives for the better. Polls and recent election results tell us that racial minorities and the so-called “educated class” — the people who expect their kind will administer centralized institutions — still take the side of the Progressives. Most Americans, however, are rejecting the path of dependence and are intent on declaring their independence once again. Michael Barone is senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner.

    Even as staunch conservatives continue to call for the repeal of the new health care law, there are signs that some Republicans are wary about how that move would be perceived in November. North Carolina’s senior senator now acknowledges there are some good things in the health care package that President Obama signed earlier this month. Republican Senator Richard Burr tells North Carolina Policy Watch that he would rather “replace” parts of the bill or see a “a series of fixes” moving forward to further contain costs and improve care.

    “What I’m trying to do is tell the troops that’s it’s OK to talk about this, no matter what their view is,” said McHugh, the Army’s top civilian official. He used the word “moratorium” loosely to describe the defacto Pentagon policy. McHugh expanded on this in a meeting with reporters, saying that “The secretary of the Army is probably not going to go out and initiate an action against an individual soldier who, in the conversation about how do you feel about ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ identified themselves as gay.”

    The $27 billion figure “is just wrong,” said Sen. Leticia Van de Putte, D-San Antonio. “It was just a wrong number. It was based on assumptions that are totally untrue, and based on a timeline that wasn’t true.” Over the next four years, Van de Putte said she expected the measure to cost Texas around $3 billion. Suehs said he chose the time frame because lawmakes must make policy decisions for the long term. He agreed to provide a cost estimate for the next few years that would include cost benefits as well as expenses. He also said he’d give senators a document that clearly showed the costs that are required versus those that are subject to lawmakers’ decisions on policy. Posted by Peggy Fikac

    Remembering Ed Hale


  22. blessedistruth Says:

    Oh, Ed! It’s been so long!


    OK CG – this is how I got it: I have a friend in Hawaii who contacted me in Feb and ask if I would be interested in the Obama long form BC.

    I said yes but under certain conditions. It must be proven to be ligit.

    They agreed and sent me the BC. I had 3 major Colleges test this document.

    All test prove that this is the real deal.

    How this document was removed from the State of Hawaii vault?

    A supervisor retired a few months back, on their last day on the job, abotu 15 minutes before closing time, they walk into the vault, folded it up and then stuck it in their shirt and walked out with it.

    The reasson that did this was because the director had lied to the American people about Obama place of birth and he was a NBC.

    They wanted to set the record straight.

    Now we have the document with the supporting document from these colleges that proves beyond any doubth that this is real and it is ligit.

    Hope that answer your question CG.


    Even if Ed Hale were telling the truth for once in his life.

    He can kiss my ass!!!

    The Conservative MonsterUser ID: 747310United States4/1/2010 12:15 PM Re: Ed Hale Claims Fox News Offered Him $1 million for Obama BC Quote Well, I really hope this is true. We shall see. The one part that concerns me, knowing that there is little difference between Republicans and Democrats, is this snippet from the article:UPDATE: Ed Hale reported tonight(3/31/10) that a sitting U.S. Congressman was at his home this morning to view the document. The Congressman is now in possession of the document and was headed to Washington D.C. with the document.I don’t know if trusting a sitting Corporate Republican Congressman was all that wise. Seems like a military official, Provost Marshal perhaps, would have been a better choice. But it’s just the skeptical, untrusting part of me that is kicking in. I do, however, have hope.DAMN, I HOPE IT’S TRUE!This part is heavy stuff if it is true, but notice he did not reveal a name?We will find out soon I guess.You’re a freakin’ retard if you buy it, Steve.

    “The Congressman also told Ed Hale that he and the others involved will have immunity from criminal prosecution due to the criminal nature of obtaining the birth certificate. Ed reports the Congressman promised to have Obama removed.”

    See above about stolen property.

    “Ed Hale says the Congressman will be on his radio show tonight(4/1) to reveal himself and the birth certificate.”

    So I’ll go out on a limb and predict that the show will come up, Ed Hale will claim that someone “got” to the supposed congressman, and that the “birth certificate” was “lost” or “stolen”.

    In other words, he’ll be lying to cover up his lies. Of course, Private Hale has been known to lie and spin tall tales before.

    (I’m beginning to think Ed Hale works for Obama. hehe.)

    The Obama BC will not be released

    After much thought and pain. I have decided to sell this document.

    So I am sorry but money talks and bull**** walks.

    One of the reason for my decision is like what the American Grand Jury said about me.

    These people have done nothing to help the cause of removing Obama.

    The show tonight will be nothing but music and I will not talk about it.

    Obama has won and it is over.

    I will take my money and ride off into the sunset.

    So after tonight show, it will just be Joe Saebi.

    Goodbye and goodluck

    “One of the reason for my decision is like what the American Grand Jury said about me.”

    I saw that one coming.

  32. blessedistruth Says:

    Some people there are speculating that this announcment on Ed’s frum wasn’t Ed.

    One asked about the more than 100 people who Ed apparently claimed gave $100 dollars the document pay-per-view that never happened, and got no answer.

    Some think the part of this about Ed taking a powder and quitting (which he has done before) is an April Fool’s joke.

    Others think the whole thing is an April Fool’s Joke which is sort of strange beause taking people’s money in fraudulent claims is no joke.

    Some there have started out threads that the person that posted as Ed, saying he was quitting, was not Ed and someone had gotten his password.

    (Ed generally quits after he’s exposed).

    And generally everyone there is running around like a beheaded chicken having no clue what the Truth is.

    Did I not call it?

    Ed blaming this all on someone else (American Grand Jury.org) and taking a powder.

    What is sad is so many are so gullible and have stood by him throughout repeated lies.

    No the congressman will do nothing. They beleive the document is ligit but they cannot get the votes to remove him. It is going down as a party line vote.

    It is a sad day when you will vote to retain a president that is not eligible.

    That is why the OBOTs were so cocky, they knew that no one in their party would vote agaisnt Obama.

    Ed you got over on everyone. The Obots sure was worry and your loyal readers and listeners paid a price tonight also.

    I hope the payback was worth the hurt you inflict on your loyal listeners.

    It was a great April Fool’s joke but was it worth what it has cost you listeners?

    I ask 4 days ago about the timing being as close to April 1st but it was not on the 1st but March 31 which was not April fools. But the red flags went up this morning. By show time I was 90% sure it was a joke but I had 10% trusts in you it was not a joke to listen.

    I’m sure the next time you do get some proof on Obama a lot of the ones you burn tonight (not the Obots but your loyal Listeners) will not trust you. The boy who cry Wolf. I hope this don’t come back to bite you and PRN.

    Good April Fool’s joke.

    But I will not trust you again.State somewhere
