AFP - UPDATED -- Our response to Pres. Obama

afp-LH_small

The President really wants you to believe that his environmental agenda will help the country's, and the world's, most vulnerable. But that couldn't be further from the truth.

Today President Obama delivered a speech at the United Nations in New York City to promote his ideologically-driven, destructive energy agenda to combat what used to be called global warming, then climate change, then extreme weather, and now finally climate disruption. The President insists that an international climate agreement is in the best interests of the American people. He claims that the United States must act on climate change now to protect future generations and the future of our country from changes in the weather.

What President Obama DIDN'T you during his speech is the truth about his radical international energy agenda -- that it will severely damage the US economy, and that America's poorest and most vulnerable will end up paying the price. More needless regulations on the energy industry mean costlier electric bills and a higher overall cost of living for everyone.

If President Obama is truly committed to helping those in need, he should seriously rethink his energy agenda. 
Affordable energy is essential to human well-being and prosperity  not just in the United States, but around the world. But if President Obama has his way, the cost of electricity will only continue to rise.

With every policy decision, it becomes more and more clear that President Obama is only concerned with his own legacy -- not about the quality of life of the American people and future generations.

The worst part is, President Obama knows that his energy agenda is harmful and will not help our country get back on the path to prosperity. In fact the President's proposal is so unpopular and destructive, even Harry Reid's Senate wouldn't dream of passing it, which is why he has bypassed Congress and taken his short-sighted, destructive energy policies to an international body.

Robert, please send a message to your Senators today , telling them to hold President Obama accountable, and to stand firm against any more harmful energy policies.

Brown For US Senate - BROWN TOURS CONSTRUCTION SITE, TALKS WITH WORKERS ABOUT FAILURES OF OBAMA-SHAHEEN AGENDA 

SALEM - Today, Scott Brown visited the construction site of Rockingham Toyota & Honda’s new facility in Salem. Brown toured the construction site and met with workers to discuss his plan to strengthen the economy and eliminate the Obama-Shaheen polices keeping people out of work.
 
“Under the Obama-Shaheen economy, New Hampshire residents are still struggling to find good-paying jobs to make ends meet and support their families," said Brown.  "I appreciate the opportunity to talk with hard-working Granite Staters who are concerned about paying the bills and saving enough for retirement. Right now, Jeanne Shaheen is voting 99 percent of the time with the President, including her votes for Obamacare, higher taxes, and a national energy tax.  I am running to be an independent voice for our state and restore a stronger economy."
 
Rockingham Toyota & Honda is working on a new project with Jewett Construction to grow their operations. During the tour, many construction workers expressed their frustrations with a sluggish economy making it difficult to find work and maintain a steady paycheck for their families.
 
“Between higher energy costs  and more government regulations, businesses aren’t hiring or expanding like they used to,” said Steve Sousa, site foreman. “We appreciate Scott Brown stopping by to talk with us and offer his solutions about how we can get our economy moving again.”

ALG - Obama's Labor fundraising scandal cover-up denounced 

6

September 15, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement demanding the resignation or firing of White House General Counsel Lamar Baker, Associate White House Counsel Kathleen Harnett, and Deputy Solicitor of Labor Deborah Greenfield for conspiring to conceal documents legitimately requested under the Freedom of Information Act:

 

"It is appalling that a simple request for the schedule of then-Labor Secretary Hilda Solis was elevated to the highest levels of the White House in an attempt to conceal her activities. White House General Counsel Lamar Baker even went so far as to demand our identity clearly to determine whether or not to release the information under the Freedom of Information Act.

 

"FOIA was never supposed to be give information to your friends and withhold it from your critics. In fact, it is intended just for the opposite purpose. The cavalier abuse of this fundamental government transparency tool should result in the resignations or firing of White House General Counsel Lamar Baker, Associate White House Counsel Kathleen Harnett, and Deputy Solicitor of Labor Deborah Greenfield."

 

Documents show that ALG's FOIA appeal was delayed by over two years:

 

Sept. 1, 2010:  In response to a Jan. 14, 2010 FOIA request from ALG, DOL withheld a calendar entry showing that Solis met with Cecilia Munoz from White House on April 7, 2009.

 

Oct. 26, 2010:  ALG files FOIA appeal, challenging redactions.

 

Approx. March 2012: Solis makes a fundraising call to a DOL employee during business hours in order to aid the President's reelection campaign.

 

Apr. 8, 2013 to May 6, 2013:  DOL finally consults with White House Counsel's Office about releasing the calendar entry; White House agrees to release.

 

May 20, 2013: DOL issues final response to ALG which includes the production of the calendar with the calendar entry.

NH GOP - NOMINATION OF SHAHEEN ENDORSED OBAMA APPOINTEE WHO DEFENDED COP KILLER WITHDRAWN 

Concord - President Barack Obama today officially withdrew the radical nomination of Debo Adegbile to lead the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division. In March, Senator Jeanne Shaheen voted with a minority of senators to confirm Adgebile, who used groundless charges of racism to try to free a convicted cop killer. His nomination was rejected by a 47-52 bipartisan vote.

 

"Debo Adegbile was the wrong person for the job, and Senator Shaheen's support for this radical nomination reminds New Hampshire that she blindly votes with President Obama 99 percent of the time. Senator Shaheen ignored the serious concerns voiced by New Hampshire's law enforcement community because she is incapable of standing up to the president and providing independent leadership for her constituents." said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "We are pleased that this outrageous nominee failed to gain the support needed to serve in this critical position."

 

Politico reports that Adegbile drew opposition from national law enforcement organizations for his work representing Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of killing Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981. The Fraternal Order of Police and the National Association of Police Officials, which described Adegbile as someone who "made his name defending one of the most notorious and unrepentant cop killers around," vigorously opposed the nomination.

 

Roll Call reports that Shaheen ran away from Capitol Hill reporters when asked about her decision following the vote. "I think he's well qualified," Sen. Jeanne Shaheen said of Adegbile as she rushed into an elevator.
