CEI Today: Controversial NLRB appointee, elitist NYT attack on cars/suburbia, and global warming before the Supreme Court

NLRB GENERAL COUNSEL IMPLICATED IN EMBEZZLEMENT COVER-UP

Workplacechoice.org: Congressional Scorecard Update–Richard Griffin Confirmation

Tuesday, the Senate voted 55-44 to confirm Richard Griffin as the National Labor Relations Board general counsel, with Senator Lisa Murkowski as the sole Republican to vote to confirm Richard Griffin. The near party-line vote on Richard Griffin’s confirmation is representative of the political divide in Congress today.

Now Griffin has been confirmed as the NLRB’s general counsel, and again circumvented Senate inquiries. Griffin was able to avoid debate over his confirmation because Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has moved for a cloture vote.

And there is good reason why Reid and the Obama administration has done this. Mr. Griffin has never had to publicly comment on being named in a federal complaint filed last October by 10 members of IUOE Local 501, which alleges Griffin was complicit in a cover-up of a scheme to embezzle funds from the local union.

ELITIST ATTACK ON CARS & SUBURBIA - MARC SCRIBNER

Globalwarming.org:
NYT Jane Brody’s Uninformed Attack on Cars and Suburbia


While at a conference where participants discussed the wannabe social engineers cum urbanists’ war on automobility and housing affordability, Jane Brody’s broadside against Americans’ “dependence on automobiles” and suburban living was published by the New York Times.  Unfortunately, Brody has fallen for one of the popular but incorrect urban elitist tropes about cars and the suburbs:

Long commutes are killing us! Urban cores are healthier than the suburbs! Low-density living is just fattening us up for self-slaughter!

GLOBAL WARMING CASE BEFORE SUPREME COURT - MARLO LEWIS

Forbes: Will Supreme Court Review Of Greenhouse Rule Take Air Out Of EPA Regulatory Overreach?

 

In a Supreme Court case on the EPA's greenhouse gas rule, the court could make EPA mothball its big plans to impose greenhouse permitting requirements on new and modified power plants, steel mills, cement production facilities, paper and pulp factories and other large industrial installations. That would validate criticism that the agency is bent on expanding its power regardless of the law. > Read more

Cyprus lawmakers finally agree to steal $17.1 billion of savings deposits

Lawmakers approved the measure despite the fact that the size of the savings tax has ballooned by €7.2 billion ($9.5 billion) since March. A previous €5.8 billion ($7.6 billion) savings tax had been rejected by the Cypriot parliament nearly unanimously last month.

Dec. 21, 2012

John Boehner's Box

Speaker Boehner could tell Obama and Reid that the debt limit will not be raised in February. He has that power, but since he has proven time and again that he is unwilling to use it, he is trapped in a box.

"Professor Adolph Reed writes in the Times about the appointment of Rep. Tim Scott to replace the retiring Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina. Scott, in Reed's view, is essentially an Uncle Tom because he does not agree with the politics of most black Americans."
