  • Legislature’s inaction on agency regs may be its greatest accomplishment

    Idaho Freedom Foundation ^ | April 12, 2019 | Wayne Hoffman
    The most monumental thing the 2019 Idaho Legislature did is what it didn’t do: The Legislature didn’t reauthorize thousands of pages of agency regulations. Those regulations, euphemistically called administrative rules, will expire this summer. The regulations cover every aspect of Idaho life, from public education to professional licenses. There’s a rule for just about everything, and those rules have the full force of law. The Legislature’s decision to do nothing is more or less the product of a spat between the House and the Senate, but the end result is still fantastic. Gov. Brad Little’s administration will need to reinstate...

    A major United States Holocaust Memorial Museum study of the Obama Administration’s Syria policy was put on hold last night after portions of the study given to Tablet were greeted with shock and harsh criticism by prominent Jewish communal leaders and thinkers. According to a publicity email sent by the Museum, the study was set to be launched at an event at the US Institute for Peace in Washington, D.C., on September 11 and was overseen by a former US intelligence and national security official under Obama, Cameron Hudson, now director of the Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide....

    Two days ago we posted a discussion around a newly released photo from the White House. The picture was taken in the oval office on Sept 11th 2012: (Snip) The picture was taken at exactly 7:28:16pm DC time. It was dusk outside, and President Obama had just completed a phone call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Why is this important? Because we know the conversation lasted an hour. (Snip) So this phone call between Benjamin Netanyahu and President Obama started three hours after the attack began.

    Berlin - The head of an umbrella organisation for Muslims in Germany on Monday rebuffed a call by a Jewish leader to do more to combat anti-Semitism after a rabbi was brutally attacked in Berlin. "Muslims do not need lessons on that. Anti-Semitism is not compatible with Islam," Ali Kizilkaya, chairperson of the Co-ordination Committee of Muslims, told the Berliner Zeitung. The beating last Tuesday of 53-year-old rabbi Daniel Alter in front of his young daughter, allegedly by a group of Arab youths, has been roundly condemned. The president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Dieter Graumann, urged...

    The Energy of Evil By Norma Zager “Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.” Yoda, Star Wars Episode I, The Phantom Menace When Franklin Roosevelt said we have nothing to fear but fear itself, what did he mean? Did he mean simply we should fear the fearing? If so, why? The paralyzing effects of the negative? Does fear make us weak? Frightened? Unable to think clearly under pressure? Probably all of those things, but so much more. There is something far greater to fear about fear. It is anger. If fear turns to anger and...

    The other day I put up post entitled “UK: Muslims vs Non-Muslims Street Fight~ Video”. In the video we saw a Muslim run up and punch a non-Muslim in the face. But that angle of the video did not show us why the Muslims were so brave. There was a mob of Muslims and British hating leftists off to the left of them, which can be seen in this video. At the 50 second mark, the words “white bastards” are heard. Yet white non-Muslims continue to pursue their targets.

    JWR ^ | July 8, 2010 | Arnold Ahlert
    I used to think extortion was a crime. Now I realize it's government policy. Nowhere is this more evident than the Obama administration's take on two issues that are dominating the news: the ongoing oil leak, and the lawsuit against Arizona's immigration law. There is absolutely no question both issues could be handled quite differently--were it not for the fact that both issues are related to far larger agendas than those which immediately present themselves. And in both cases, the Obama administration has made it crystal clear that they will hold the country hostage to those agendas, unless Americans "come...

    An Ottawa area inventor has spent the last two weeks on the Gulf of Mexico coast trying desperately to convince BP that he might have a way to clean up the company's massive oil spill. Tens of millions of litres of oil have poured into the Gulf from a BP oil well 80 kilometres off the coast of Louisiana since the Deepwater Horizon rig drilling the well exploded April 20, killing 11 people. Willie Nelson, 69, of Perth, Ont., has spent 40 years developing a kind of wax that acts like a sponge that absorbs oil, making it easy to...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - One of President Barack Obama's top advisers says Republicans are using inaction as a political strategy. White House aide David Axelrod said Sunday that the GOP has used its opposition to a climate change bill as a plan for next year's congressional elections. He said the rival party should instead focus on how to help rebuild the economy.

    Millions of Iranians take to the streets to defy a theocratic dictatorship that, among its other finer qualities, is a self-declared enemy of America and the tolerance and liberties it represents. The demonstrators are fighting on their own, but they await just a word that America is on their side. And what do they hear from the president of the United States? Silence. Then, worse. Three days in, the president makes clear his policy: continued "dialogue" with their clerical masters.

    It must be understood that the outcries over "The Path to 9/11," penned and produced by Cyrus Nowrasteh — a contributor to JWR's sister site Political Mavens — has much to do with this being the first time that Bill Clinton has found himself on the wrong side of Hollywood's creative pen. "Wrong" in this case meaning not the flattering or sycophantic treatment he's come to take for granted from the entertainment community. If history will find fault with "Path," it will be that it lets the Clinton administration off easy, hardly scratching the surface of the aggressive non-vigilance,...

    United Nations chief Kofi Annan says that the deadline for Iran to freeze sensitive nuclear work had passed but that he did not think the Security Council would act immediately. "Even though the deadline has expired, I don't think the Council is going to act tomorrow. I will need to be in touch with the players to find out how they intend to proceed," Mr Annan said. "And I am not sure that they are ready to take the kind of action you want," he said. "I will need further consolations with them." The Security Council adopted a resolution last...

    After a helicopter tour of the U.S.-Mexico border here, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger launched a broadside yesterday against House Republican leaders for threatening to scuttle a sweeping overhaul of immigration laws. “It would be totally inexcusable for them to say, 'This year we couldn't do it,'” Schwarzenegger said at a news conference minutes after landing near the border fence, yards away from Tijuana, on a National Guard Blackhawk helicopter. The Republican governor had just completed a 23-minute aerial tour that took him from Brown Field east nearly to Otay Mountain and then west to seaside Border Field State Park. After landing...

    German public sector workers fighting plans to extend their working hours have widened their strike action to cover most of the country. An estimated 20,000 local and regional authority staff including nurses, cooks and cleaners have joined the largest public sector strike in 14 years. They are protesting against plans to extend weekly working hours by 90 minutes, from 38.5 to 40 hours a week. The industrial action...has now spread to 10 of Germany's 16 states... Leaders at Verdi - Germany's biggest union with 2.4 million members - have warned that the strikes could last for up to six weeks.

    Nicholas Kristof of the NY Times deserves a lot of credit for his recent column titled “Bush, A Friend of Africa,” a piece in which he not only gives President Bush and religious groups “on the ground” in Africa the praise they deserve but also bravely joins the very few Left of Center writers courageous enough to tell the truth about President Clinton’s shameful record regarding a continent in agony. Although his statement “those who care about Africa tend to think that the appropriate attitude toward President Bush is a medley of fury and contempt” reveals the usual Liberal arrogance,...

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's administration has jeopardized a deal to get $400 million in federal funds to fast-track adding a critical car-pool lane on the northbound San Diego Freeway into the San Fernando Valley, Rep. Howard Berman charged Monday. Schwarzenegger aides acknowledged that the administration is more concerned with the Alameda Corridor East project and fears that throwing its full support behind easing congestion on the 405 Freeway might jeopardize funding for the effort to move freight more quickly out of the harbor area. But Berman, D-Van Nuys, said the 405 funding is extra money the state could get to dramatically...

    Leaders make things happen. Liberals stop things from happening, and laggards wait to act until someone else acts first. Leaders, liberals, and laggards are all present in our nation’s Capital, where our elected officials are supposed to work on fixing our big issues. Unfortunately, the leaders are way out-numbered. As a practicing leader for thirty-five years as a business executive and author of three books on leadership, I have documented the three critical things that leaders do to solve problems. After further experience and analysis it is clear that liberals and laggards in Congress do the exact opposite of what...

    For every day Terri Shiavo suffers, liberals continue to deny their role in the conspiracy to commit murder. In an attempt to muddy the water and wash their hands of any responsibility for her death, those who support Terri’s starvation have adopted a new catch phrase: “This is a very difficult and complex matter.” Whether it is Michael Shiavo’s lawyer, Judge Greer, Jeb Bush, the Florida legislature, or everyone in the partisan media, these modern day equivalents of Pontius Pilate have decided that the best way to wash their hands of Terri’s blood is to constantly mumble some generic form...
