Daily Signal - Sen. Mike Lee: Congress Must Have a Say Before Obama Commits to 'Unilateral' International Climate Change Plan 

The Daily Signal

Nov. 5, 2015

Good morning from the nation's capital, where lawmakers are pretty hot about President Obama's plan to cut an international deal in Paris on global warming. In a speech at The Heritage Foundation, Sen. Mike Lee warns that he'd better come to Congress first. LGBT advocates, meanwhile, assess why Houston voters rejected new protections for sexual orientation and gender identity. And in one D.C. suburb, a school board member is unseated after backing a transgender policy.

ALG - Senate bill would release thousands of federal prison inmates

6

Oct. 14, 2015, Fairfax,Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in opposition to legislation that will retroactively reduce the sentences of thousands of federal prisoninmates:

 

"The Obama administrationis flooding our cities with MS 13 and Mexican Cartel members due to his failure to secure the borders and to enforce immigration law, and on top of this, he is releasing as many as 46,000 drug offenders early starting Nov. 1.  Talk about a bad Halloween hangover.

 

"To make matters even more dangerous, Obama is bringing into America potentially hundreds of thousands of Muslim 'refugees' many of whom are likely to be adherents of Islamic State, al Qaeda and followers of Sharia Law. In the meantime, the Left's war on the police has left the thin blue line that protects our cities from entering into chaos frayed and the cops demoralized, making the situation all the more dangerous. And now, apparently some Senate Republicans in a quest for bipartisanship are set to retroactivelyreduce more federal prison sentences, resulting in an additional flooding of our cities with thousands more convicted criminals out of penitentiaries.What could go wrong?"

 

"Given the volatile mix of massive increases of Muslim refugees, the influx of Central American gangs and Mexican drug cartel members, and the disarming of our police, what could go wrong with releasing tens of thousands of convicted criminals early into the already violent cities? Why would Republicans vote for that?

 

"From a political perspective, the opponent's campaign ad writes itself should just one of these early released criminals commit a murder. Each and every member of Congress who votes for mass early criminal release can and will be targeted, and no amount of explaining will protect them from being Willie Hortoned.  And that is the truth."

NH GOP - INCREASING IRANIAN AGGRESSION DEMONSTRATES FOOLISHNESS OF OBAMA-HASSAN FOREIGN POLICY 

Concord - Yesterday, Iran broadcast images of its underground missile facilities after violating international agreements with its illegal test of long range missiles that could threaten American lives. President Obama's deal with Iran has come under fire as a majority of Americans understandably do not trust Iran to abide by its terms. Despite its overwhelming unpopularity and clear evidence that Iran cannot be trusted, Governor Hassan continues to support President Obama's dangerous deal with Iran.
 
"Iran's blatant disregard for the United States, the United Nations and the international community proves that we are not dealing with a responsible or trustworthy actor, and Governor Hassan's continued support for President Obama's deal with Iran shows that she is just as woefully naïve and foolish as he is," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "The governor's desire to march in lockstep with President Obama is shameful, and the clear evidence that Iran cannot be trusted is alarming and demonstrates the foolishness of the Obama-Hassan foreign policy. Governor Hassan is clearly unprepared to effectively confront the threats facing our nation and unfit to represent New Hampshire in the United States Senate."

ALG - Pacific trade deal worsens Obama's globalization lament 

6

Oct. 7, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to President Barack Obama calling globalization a challenge at the White House Summit on Worker Voice:

 

"President Obama calling globalization a challenge just three days after releasing an executive summary of the Trans-Pacific Partnership is jaw dropping in its audacity. Once again, the President proves that he cannot see the destructive impact of the very policies that he promotes. We invite Obama to join Americans for Limited Government in opposing his own Trans-Pacific Partnership because of its devastating impact on the U.S. economy and worker. If Obama wants to stop jobs from going overseas, then perhaps he should stop shipping them there."
