CEI Today: EPA Progressives, a carbon tax in the US?, Scottish secession, railroad re-regulation, and more 

In the News Today

EPA ADMITS "PROGRESSIVE" AGENDA - CHRISTOPHER HORNER

 

The Daily Caller & Fox News: Internal emails: EPA rules part of 'progressive' agenda

Emails between top Environmental Protection Agency officials reveal they saw their fight against global warming as putting them at “forefront of progressive national policy.”

These emails, which were part of a batch obtained by the Competitive Enterprise Institute, show what top EPA officials were thinking as the agency prepared to release its greenhouse gas endangerment finding, which would give the agency the power to regulate carbon dioxide emissions from tailpipes and, eventually, from power plants.

“This is not about climate,” CEI senior fellow Chris Horner told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “This is the progressive agenda.”

SCOTTISH SECESSION - IAIN MURRAY

The Freeman: Freedom and Whisky Go Together

 

On Thursday, Scottish voters will decide whether to dissolve the 300-year-old union with England and Wales or remain in it. The result is now too close to call.

No vote on war against Islamic State before election?
Obama has no intention of asking for authorization to use force in Syria and Iraq, so why are House Republicans waiting for him to ask?

ALG - Demand Congress vote on war against Islamic State before November!

6

Sept. 17, 2014

Dear Liberty Activist,

Click here to demand Congress vote on war against Islamic State before the November elections!

Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens recently issued the following statement urging both chambers of Congress to take up legislation on the White House's proposed war against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria:

"If the war against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is important enough for the U.S. to fight, then it is important enough for Congress to vote on. Obama cannot go to war unilaterally without Congress, yet that is precisely what his administration seeks to do in order to spare congressional Democrats a tough vote on the eve of the midterm elections. Last time we checked, constitutional provisions such as Congress' war-making powers can neither be suspended by presidential fiat nor for cynical, political calculations.

"This is a subversion of the Constitution of the highest order, and Congress must act immediately to preserve the separation of powers. There should be votes on Obama's war, whether it would pass or not. The people's representatives must have their say on when the nation goes to war, or else members of Congress of both parties will be complicit in this abdication of power."

You know what to do! Let's get on Rally Congress and urge your representatives and senators to vote on the war before they go home to campaign.

Obama thinks he can go to war whenever he feels like without Congress, and congressional Democrats would rather not vote on this at all. Why are Congressional leaders so anxious to put a war vote into the lame duck session, or to defer to Obama's claims that he somehow possesses authority to start wars that were never authorized?

Whether you support the action or not, you deserve to know where your representatives stand on such a momentous issue before you vote in November. Tell them you want a vote!

Keep fighting!

For Liberty,

Citizens For A Strong NH - Release: www.WhyAreTheyHiding.com 

 

New microsite focuses on Hassan's, Shaheen's, Shea-Porter's, and Kuster's refusal to hold Town Halls:

(September 17, 2014) - Today, Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire is launching a new microsite at www.WhyAreTheyHiding.com.  The site focuses on the failed votes and policy positions Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Governor Maggie Hassan, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01), and Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) have taken, and highlights them as a reason for why the four aforementioned elected officials are hiding from Granite Staters with their refusal to hold public Town Hall meetings. 

Last month, Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire launched a smaller site and a web video focusing solely on Senator Jeanne Shaheen's record.

www.WhyAreTheyHiding.com, which will be an offshoot of the organization's main website, www.StrongNH.com, is being backed with a significant, state-wide, online advertisement buy, which will be used to educate countless New Hampshire residents about the lack of honesty and transparency they are receiving from their elected officials.

Derek Dufresne, spokesman for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, released the following statement:

 

"New Hampshire once had a long standing tradition of open and honest elected officials who were concerned with the views of their constituents. However, that seems to be fading from memory as Governor Maggie Hassan, Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, and Congresswoman Annie Kuster continue to hide from those they represent.

"Considering their support for a failing Obamacare, a collapsing foreign policy, and a crisis at our border, we certainly understand why they are hiding from Granite Staters, but that's no excuse. Granite Staters want to know why Hassan, Shaheen, Shea-Porter, and Kuster are going out of their way to avoid them. Since their constituents can't get answers from their elected officials, our new microsite helps explain why they are hiding from them."
