Does the National Debt Matter?

The greatest fiscal crisis that will face our nation in the next decade won't be Medicare spending or Social Security, it will be whether we should refuse to pay the banks and nations that own our debt or severely cut back on all government services in order to make them whole.

TheTeaParty.net - Eric Holder Is At It Again 

Dear Patriot,

TheTeaParty.netYesterday marked the next chapter in the ongoing saga of Operation Fast and Furious, the gun-walking scandal that led to thousands of guns being placed in the hands of narco-terrorists, and ended with the murder of US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Attorney General Eric Holder, who already perjured himself before Congress when he lied and said he had only heard of Fast and Furious "a few weeks" before his testimony, once again faced Rep. Darrell Issa's House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Holder was evasive, argumentative, and provided no new information about the investigation into who was ultimately responsible for Fast and Furious. This just a day after the Justice Department refused to turn over documents subpoenaed by Congress!

It's time for Eric Holder to be held accountable! Write your elected representatives in Congress and tell them that Eric Holder is not above the law. Use our state-of-the-art petition system today to make sure Holder, and the rest of the Obama administration, are held accountable!

Sincerely,

Todd Cefaratti
Freedom Organizer

CEI - Did Obama EPA/DOT officials lie to Congress? 

Did Obama Administration EPA and Department of Transportation officials lie to Congress? That is a question CEI Senior Fellow Marlo Lewis raises in recent commentary on Globalwarming.org.

At an October 12 hearing House Regulatory Affairs and Stimulus Oversight Subcommittee, EPA Assistant Air Administrator Gina McCarthy, EPA Air Transportation and Air Quality Director Margo Oge, and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) David Strickland denied, under oath, that greenhouse gas emission standards are “related to” fuel economy standards.

But as Lewis explains, "Motor vehicle greenhouse gas emission standards implicitly – and inescapably – regulate fuel economy.” Based on EPA, NHTSA, and California Air Resources Board (CARB) documents, Lewis shows that greenhouse gas emission standards are highly “related to” fuel economy standards. At the hearing, the Obama officials denied plain facts they must know to be true. Why?

Had they spoken truthfully, they would also have to admit that EPA is regulating fuel economy, which is outside the scope of its delegated authority, and that CARB is regulating fuel economy, which is prohibited by the Energy Policy Conservation Act (EPCA).

The implications are huge. EPA’s greenhouse gas/fuel economy standards were the trigger for the agency’s regulation of greenhouse gases from “major” stationary sources. AB 1493 created the threat of market-balkanizing, state-by-state fuel-economy patchwork. EPA granted California a waiver to implement AB 1493 just so Obama negotiators could offer to remove the patchwork threat in return for industry’s promise not to challenge EPA and CARB’s newfound careers as fuel economy regulators.

In short, the Obama officials could not acknowledge plain facts they must know to be true without admitting that EPA’s greenhouse gas regulatory agenda rests on dubious legal foundations.

ALG - Sims Nomination Controversy Growing 

Court Records Contradict HUD Nominee's Remarks to Television Crew

President Barack Obama's nominee for deputy secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) told Senator David Vitter (R-La.) last week during a confirmation hearing that he could not comment about his role in an on-going legal battle over a sport stadium.

"With regard to the litigation involving Qwest Field, since the matter is involved in active litigation, I am regrettably unable to comment upon that case," said Ronald Sims, the King County Executive in Washington State.

However, when he was interviewed by a television crew the next day about a $120,000 fine Sims denied concealing any records or having any personal involvement in the case. Sims also said there were no records linking him with the case.

"I didn't conceal anything, so you're absolutely wrong on that," he said. "I was not fined $120,000. As a matter of fact, it's interesting because there is nothing in the court record at all involving me personally. I never was involved in that at all. There's nothing-nothing regarding my conduct. I didn't conceal a thing. I did order the release of documents after they were discovered, but I never concealed anything."

Court records contradict these statements. "The office of Ron Sims, King County Executive" was listed as the respondent in a court ruling issued this past January. Writing for the majority in Yousoufian v. Sims, Justice Richard Sanders concluded that information was withheld from the plaintiff and that fines should be levied.

The opinion reads as follows: "The unchallenged findings of fact demonstrate King County repeatedly deceived and misinformed Yousoufian for years. King County told Yousoufian it produced all the requested documents, when in fact it had not. King County told Yousoufian the information was located elsewhere, when in fact it was not. After years of delay, mispresentation, and ineptitude on the part of King County, Yousoufian filed suit; nevertheless, it would still take another year for King County to completely and accurately respond to Yousoufian's original request, well past the purpose of his request, the referendum on public financing of a sports stadium [emphasis added]."

In this same ruling it was also noted that, "The trial court found King County could have complied with Yousoufian's PRA [Public Records Act] request within 'five business days' following Yousoufian's initial request."

Armen Yousoufian, the plaintiff, asked for records of government studies that examined costs connected with the proposed Seattle Seahawks stadium. This request was made when King County residents were still a few weeks away from voting on a referendum to raise taxes by $300 million, according to Americans for Limited Government (ALG), a group opposed to the Sims HUD nomination.

King County has now been ordered to pay Yousoufian $120,000, the largest fine in state history, ALG claims in a news release.

There is no question that Sims is the main defendant in this case, despite what he told the television crew, Carter Clews the communication for ALG, said. The records could have been released in a timely fashion that would help serve the public interest but instead this took years , costing millions of dollars in litigation, he added.

"He's being Clintonesque in his words," Richard McCarty, a researcher with ALG said. "He's trying to say it's his office that has been fined but not him personally, but he's the one responsible here."
