For those of you who have never heard of Hartmann, he is your typical far Leftwing Progressive who believes government is the answer to everything, that Reagan is to blame for everything 30 years later and Obama is a failure because of racism and hate.

    Updated May 03, 2010Another Tea Party Victory By Tom and Deneen Borelli - Senator Harry Reid suddenly decides to focus on addressing immigration instead of cap-and-trade. Chalk up another victory for the Tea Party movement. Two weeks ago, a press conference designed to announce the Kerry-Graham-Lieberman Senate cap-and-trade bill was postponed. Why? Because Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is suddenly contemplating moving forward with immigration reform before he leads the charge for climate change legislation.The sudden change in priorities upset Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) – the principal Republican driver of the climate bill. Graham has been working closely for...

    Black Conservatives Take Lead Role in Tea Party Movement Though the tea party movement has attracted criticism for its supposed lack of diversity, minority activists who are involved say the movement has little to do with race, and that it is attracting a more diverse crowd every day. Lloyd Marcus' conservatism started when he was 9. His family had just moved out of the "ghetto" to a brand-new high rise in Baltimore -- within months, he said, the "dream come true" turned into a nightmare, as the building of welfare-collecting black residents became a den of crime. His father moved...
  • EPA regulations could make it difficult for Americans to stay warm this winter

    12/14/2010 7:10:19 AM PST · by EBH · 57 replies
    With reports predicting brutally-cold weather to envelop much of the U.S. in the coming weeks, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations could make it harder for Americans to stay warm. According to the National Center for Public Policy, the EPA’s regulatory war on greenhouse gas emissions will drastically increase costs for the majority of Americans who get their heat generated from coal. Coal happens to be the chief emitter of carbon dioxide and other pollutants, making it the EPA’s public enemy number one. And in absence of a comprehensive energy bill, the agency’s strategy has instead been to regulate and cap...

    With progressives worried their hold on power may be tenuous, they are honing their attack on the driving power behind the rise of the Tea Party movement: conservative women. Former President Bill Clinton – of all people – was recently unleashed to pointedly criticize conservative women running for office across America. It’s ironic that the man with the legacy marred by womanizing — no matter how popular he may be in his retirement — is the one warning that these conservative women are allegedly an affront to the political process. And no one gets the progressives ire up these days...

Rick Perry today was joined by local government and business leaders to decry Washington's latest attempt to extend federal control over the state's authority, an action that would undermine Texas’ successful clean air programs and cost the state thousands of jobs.  Last week, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced its efforts to take over Texas’ federally delegated, successful Title V permitting program and replace it with a less effective Washington-based, bureaucratic led, command and control mandate. “Last week, the federal government sent the very clear message that it seeks to destroy Texas’s successful clean air program...

    Van Jones, the former “green jobs czar” for the Obama Administration, was honored with an Image Award from the NAACP. According to NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous, Jones was honored as “an American treasure” who is “the most misunderstood man in America.” This just cements what most already figured: the NAACP nowadays is, in essence, a progressive front group. That knowledge dulls the shock of them giving an award meant to honor “outstanding achievement” to a self-avowed communist, 9/11-truther and generally crass political operative.

    A plan to block the EPA from regulating greenhouse gas emissions is gaining momentum, but Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) is playing the spoiler to the growing bi-partisan effort to stop the federal agency’s power grab. With the exception of Rockefeller, all of the members of the West Virginia congressional delegation — Republican and Democrat — support the Energy Tax Prevention Act of 2011. It would limit the EPA’s power to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. Obama ordered the EPA to regulate them, based on a Supreme Court ruling, after his cap-and-trade proposal failed on Capitol Hill.

On June 10, the U.S. Senate will consider a “resolution of disapproval” regarding a 2009 ruling made by the EPA in late 2009 claiming six greenhouse gases are a threat to public health. This makes these gases -- carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, and sulfur hexafluoride -- subject to regulation under the Clean Air Act. “The EPA’s endangerment finding endangers our economy and our liberty,” said Deneen Borelli, full-time fellow...

Why? Fisher said it’s because she is white and was a victim of the university’s preference toward minority students.

    Maxine Waters' Leaky Argument Can't Wash Away Banking Scandal Dirt Banks pushed risky loans to people who could not afford them. Homeownership was promoted as a right for all instead of one for those who saved. Since the mortgage bubble burst, leaving many in financial trouble, a lot of anger has been directed at banks and the bankers involved. Lawmakers are worked up in a lather, but this should not remove them from scrutiny. In the case of Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), criticism of her involvement in one aspect of this crisis is extremely justified. Yet she is playing the...

    Washington, D.C. - Responding to today's U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Boumediene v. Bush that allows suspected terrorists to challenge their incarceration, Project 21's Kevin Martin is criticizing the Court, saying this decision puts national security at risk and sends a confusing signal to the military. "As a Navy veteran who supported and defended our Constitution at home and abroad, today's Supreme Court ruling benefiting suspected terrorists is deeply disappointing," said Martin. "To grant suspected terrorists the same rights as those fighting to protect our nation is wrong. I consider this one of the most chilling legal rulings in my...

    Anti-Photo ID Legislation Would Promote Election Fraud, Says Group For Release: November 5, 2007 Contact: David Almasi at (202) 543-4110 x11 or Washington, D.C. - Legislation introduced by Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) to prohibit photo ID requirements for voting in federal elections would promote election fraud, say members of the black leadership network Project 21. "Representative Ellison's proposal is fundamentally flawed and potentially harmful to the integrity of our democratic process," said Project 21 chairman Mychal Massie. "Why invite that which can only lead to unimaginable fraud and corruption?" Imposing existing Minnesota election law on a national scale, the...
  • Black Group Slams Proposed Resurrection of Radio "Fairness Doctrine"

    The Bush Administration is commended for announcing that it would veto any legislation reinstating the so-called "Fairness Doctrine." The Administration's announcement came following media reports of support for reimposing the Fairness Doctrine by Senators Dianne Feinstein, Dick Durbin, Barbara Boxer, Hillary Clinton, and others. Rep. Maurice Hinchley (D-NY) intends to re-introduce legislation "to restore the Fairness Doctrine" in coming weeks. Hinchley's "Media Ownership Reform Act (H.R. 3302)," better known as MORA, had 16 co-sponsors in the 109th Congress, but got nowhere due to GOP control. "It's the 'Hush Rush' crowd at it again, and it has nothing to do with...

    Washington, DC ( -- An African-American organization is upset that the nation's top abortion business has been included in a civil rights coalition. Members of Project 21 say they are outraged that Planned Parenthood recently became a member of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (LCCR).Project 21 chairman Mychal Massie says Planned Parenthood advocates abortions -- particularly in the black community. "How can a civil rights group that claims to support underprivileged blacks embrace an organization created expressly to hasten the demise of black people?" Massie asked in a statement received."People of conscience should be appalled and outraged by...

    MEDIA ADVISORY, July 3, /Christian Newswire/ -- Members of the black leadership network Project 21 are speaking out against the efforts by some left-leaning black religious leaders to politicize black houses of worship. At the "National Conference and Revival for Social Justice in the Black Church" held in Dallas last week, Reverends Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Joseph Lowery exhorted the leaders of black churches to reorient themselves and their congregations to fight for social justice issues instead of addressing moral issues such as homosexuality and abortion. "It's wrong for Jackson and Sharpton to tell ministers how to conduct their...

    Blacks in the region are joining Minuteman militia groups opposed to illegal Hispanic aliens working in the United States, saying they take jobs from blacks and piggyback off the strides made during the civil rights movement. Several blacks Friday attended a Minuteman rally in the District. And yesterday, Ted Hayes, a black Los Angeles-based homeless activist and founder of the Crispus Attucks Brigade, held a rally in Upper Senate Park denouncing attempts by immigrant rights groups to link their movement to that of black civil rights. "Illegal immigration is the greatest threat to black people since slavery," Mr. Hayes said....

    WASHINGTON, May 1 /U.S. Newswire/ -- As proponents of amnesty for illegal aliens stage nationwide protests and work stoppages, members of the black leadership network Project 21 point out that the movement's comparison of illegal aliens' quest for preferential and expedited citizenship benefits bear no comparison to the hardships endured by African-Americans during the civil rights era. "The amnesty issue is being distorted. This is not about the rights of people here legally or of equal rights -- it is about people who are here illegally wanting everyone to ignore the fact that they broke the law to get into...
