ChiBama Politics – The Turd Reich

No Turds In 2010 - Democrat, Republican, or Independent Turds - Vote For Fiscal Responsibility and Those Who Will Support The Constitution! Note: I'm not calling Obama a Nazi. I'm calling his movement fascist because it constantly seeks to ruin, ridicule, intimidate and/or censor everyone who questions Obama's honesty or his policies. It's crap!

First Obama got rid of Inspector General Walpin for doing his job.  Now, Michelle Malkin is reporting the EPA may get rid of its internal review office.  So much for checks and balances!

EPA whistleblower’s office on the chopping block

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 26, 2009 10:51 AM

Over the past two months, I’ve chronicled the plight of EPA whistleblower Alan Carlin at the hands of Team Obama’s dissent-stiflers.

My friends at the Competitive Enterprise Institute first blew the lid on the story and continue to monitor the war on EPA watchdogs.

The latest development? EPA may get rid of a key internal review office that has provided too many inconvenient truths:

Following a whistleblower report that criticized a global warming rule, the Environmental Protection Agency is reportedly considering shutting down the agency office in which the critical report originated.

Dr. Alan Carlin, the senior analyst whose report EPA unsuccessfully tried to bury, worked in EPA’s National Center for Environmental Economics (NCEE). According to a story in last Friday’s Inside EPA, the agency is now considering shutting that office down….Continue Reading

Obama wants to appoint his own ‘whistleblowers’
Democrats push to give prez power over Federal Reserve

A bill sponsored by Democrats in Congress would make several U.S. inspectors general currently appointed by federal agency heads presidential appointees instead, including the inspector general keeping an eye on the Federal Reserve.

The inspectors general, or IGs, are independent investigators charged with rooting out government waste and fraud in their respective federal agencies. Roughly half of the watchdogs are already appointed by the president upon Senate confirmation, while the other half are appointed by agency chiefs.

An editorial published in the Washington Times over the weekend blasted the plan to convert five more IGs to presidential picks:

“Such a move would undermine independent oversight of large parts of the federal bureaucracy,” the editorial stated. “These changes would only serve to further politicize these positions.”

The editorial added, “Now is not a wise time to remove independent review of the government leviathan.”

H.R. 885, known as the Improved Financial and Commodity Markets Oversight and Accountability Act, would make five inspectors general – those overseeing the Federal Reserve, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the National Credit Union Administration, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation – presidential appointees.

Rep. John Larson, D-Conn., sponsored H.R. 885 earlier this year and was joined by 37 other representatives, most of whom are also Democrats. The bill has passed the House and now awaits its companion legislation, S. 1354, sponsored by Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., to be passed through the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

The five people currently serving as the inspectors general in question fired off a letter last month Connecticut’s Sen. Joe Lieberman, who chairs the Senate committee considering the bill, arguing the move would “seriously disrupt the continuity of operations and risk undermining our effectiveness.”

The Times reports Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, who also sits on the Senate committee and is a long-time ardent supporter of the role of the independent investigators, is backing the concerned IGs and has placed a hold on the legislation.

Obama’s controversial connection to IGs

Supporters of H.R. 885 have argued that IGs appointed by the president, rather than the agency heads, will enable the IGs to be more independent and capable of investigating the agencies. Furthermore, they’ve argued, there’s no need to fear that presidential appointment will lead to undue politicization, since the watchdogs won’t be investigating the White House.

The Times editorial, however, argues too many people in powerful positions beholden to the president undermines the independent spirit of the IG role:

“As appointees, IGs serve at the will of the president and investigate operations directed by other presidential appointees,” the Times states. “Surely, at a time when the president and Congress are planning massive expansions in government power, some political leverage would be gained by further politicizing these jobs.”

And as WND has reported, President Obama has already come under fire for allegedly canning an IG who crossed him politically.…Continue Reading

Honduras to hold presidential election on Nov. 29

Submitted by admin4 on 26 August 2009 – 1:49pm.

By RIA Novosti,

Mexico : Presidential elections will be held in Honduras on November 29, even if they are not internationally recognized, the country’s interim leader told a delegation from the Organization of American States.

“No matter what, presidential elections in Honduras will be held on November 29,” Roberto Micheletti said. “It does not matter if they are recognized by the international community or not.”

The delegation, comprising the foreign ministers of Argentina, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Mexico, Panama, and Jamaica, led by OAS Secretary General Jose Miguel Insulza, arrived in the Central American country on Monday to seek a solution to the current political crisis.

Costa Rican Foreign Minister Bruno Stagno said the mission had failed to persuade Micheletti to accept a 12-point plan devised by Costan Rican President Oscar Arias. Under the plan, ousted Honduran leader Manuel Zelaya would return to his post, while Micheletti would return to his pre-coup post of parliamentary speaker.

The Honduran military arrested Zelaya on June 28, the day polls were due to open for a nonbinding referendum on extending the non-renewable, four-year presidential term of office, and flew him to Costa Rica.

The plan, known as the San Jose Accord, also offers a full amnesty for those who ousted the president, and suggests holding presidential elections in the country one month earlier than scheduled.

The interim leader also said that his country could survive a possible economic embargo.

“We are sure that the country can get by without your support,” he said.…Continue Reading

U.S. limits visas in Honduras, stepping up pressure

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States said on Tuesday it would temporarily restrict the issuing of U.S. visas in Honduras, raising pressure on the government that took power after a June 28 coup to step down.

The State Department, which has repeatedly condemned the military coup that ousted President Manuel Zelaya, said that from Wednesday it would only provide visa services to potential immigrants and emergency cases at its embassy in Tegucigalpa….

…RESISTING PRESSURE

The de facto government, which has resisted pressure from Western hemisphere governments and international bodies to reinstate Zelaya, vowed on Tuesday to stick to a plan to hold a presidential election in November, even if other countries don’t recognize the result.

“There will be elections whether they are recognized or not,” the country’s caretaker leader Roberto Micheletti told foreign ministers from the region on a visit with Organization of American States chief Jose Miguel Insulza.

They included ministers from Argentina, Canada, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama and the Dominican Republic.

Micheletti said his country could survive any economic sanctions imposed over his refusal to allow Zelaya’s return.

“We are not afraid of anyone’s embargo,” Micheletti told the ministers. “This country can get by without your support.”

The Honduran crisis has divided Washington. Earlier this month, 16 Democratic Congressmen wrote to Obama urging him to freeze the assets of coup leaders. But a group of Republican senators has sought to hold up confirmation of State Department appointments due to the administration’s support for Zelaya, an ally of Venezuela’s leftist president Hugo Chavez.…Continue Reading

I applaud the Government in Honduras for standing up to power and not letting their Constitution be trampled upon by Zelaya and Obama.

Supporters of a first-of-a-kind law in Montana that declared weapons or ammunition made and kept in Montana were exempt from federal rules are preparing for a court challenge to the federal government’s insistence it will regulate those items.

The Montana Shooting Sports Association and the Second Amendment Foundation have formed a strategic alliance with plans to litigate over the Montana Firearms Freedom Act.

The bill was passed by the 2009 Montana Legislature and signed into law by Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer. …Continue Reading
