Obama Release of Illegals ‘An Impeachable Offense’!

NewsMax ^ | 27 Feb 2013 | Todd Beamon

Conservative radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh said on Wednesday that the Obama administration’s release of hundreds of illegal aliens from local jails to save money before huge budget cuts take effect was “an impeachable offense.”

“This is in direct violation of the oath of office,” Limbaugh said on his radio show. “Defend and protect the Constitution of the United States and the people.

“We're opening the doors of prisons before the sequester has even happened, before there have even been any budget cuts,” Limbaugh added. “This is so childish, except the consequences are real for people that live near these detention centers. This is in-the-ground, hard, cold reality.”

MICH. GOV SNYDER TO ANNOUNCE STATE TAKEOVER OF DETROIT

ZeroHedge ^ | 2/28/2013 | Tyler Durden

Usually, when the administration needs a distraction from just how broke and insolvent in reality the country is, it sends the stock market soaring higher. As such it is beyond ironic that as the S&P is set to hit an all time high, Detroit - that shining symbol of the Obama administration's bailout of General Motors - effectively goes broke.

STUDY: America Is Just At The Beginning Of A Gas Boom That Will Last For Decades!

TBI ^ | 2-28-2013 | Rob Wile




A new study from the University of Texas and the Sloan foundation suggests Texas' Barnett shale oil and gas play has barely reached a third of its potential.
However, it also concedes that the area's production rate has peaked.
The study's finding's were first reported by the Wall Street Journal's Russell Gold.
"We are looking at multi, multi decades of growth," Scott Tinker, director of the Bureau of Economic Geology at the university and a leader of the study, told Gold.
The study looked at every one of the 16,000 wells in the Barnett, and found that the area is ultimately capable of producing 44 trillion cubic feet of oil and gas, three-times more than it currently puts out, assuming a break-even price of $4.
That's actually about 25 cents above the current Henry Hub price.
The study argues natural gas prices are still low enough to produce a gently declining production curve in the Barnett, located in north-central Texas. Here's the chart:

Sloan said it found no conflict of interest among the studies co-authors despite one having ties to BP.
"The consensus from those meetings was that the quality of the research was excellent and that there was no indication that it was influenced by conflicts of interest," the foundation said in a statement.

Get ready for the Obamacollapse!

Vanity | 02/27/2013 | struggl

Hey guys, can you feel it?

There's that smell in the air...the acrid stench of desperation.

This Friday marks the first time the Republicans MIGHT ACTUALLY STAND UP TO OBAMA!
Guess what has happened in the last day alone? 1. Bob Woodward has called the Obama Admin's actions "madness" and compared them to Nixon. 2. Bob Woodward was threatened by Glen Sperling, Obama aide. 3. The media is in full a**-cover mode, trying in anyway possible to spin the slam of Woodward, THEIR HERO, as some kind of fluke. 4. @SharylAttkisson is back on the question track with #Benghazi 5. McConnell seems adamant that there will be sequestration, regardless. 6. It's been revealed that ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WERE RELEASED FROM PRISON because of sequestration, before it even happened. Obama threw DHS under the bus, and some no-name got blamed.
Folks, GET HAPPY!

Lawmakers introduce bill to demote Pentagon's new medal

Stars and Stripes ^ | February 27, 2013 | Joyce Tsai

Lawmakers are lashing out at the Pentagon’s creation of the Distinguished Warfare Medal - intended to honor the contributions of drone pilots and cyber warriors who haven’t set foot on the battlefield - by introducing legislation that would ban it from being rated on par with or above the Purple Heart.
A trio of veterans serving in Congress, Reps. Duncan Hunter, D-Calif., Tom Rooney, R- Fl., and Tim Murphy, R-Pa., introduced the bill on Wednesday, in response to what has been a public outcry against the creation of the medal, which was announced on Feb. 13.
“Combat valor awards have a deep and significant meaning to those who serve in America’s military,” said Hunter, a former Marine, in a statement. “These awards represent not just actions, but also the courage and sacrifice that derive from experiences while in harm’s way. And those engaged in direct combat put their lives on the line, accepting extraordinary personal risk.”
According to Pentagon officials, the medal, which ranks immediately below the Distinguished Flying Cross, was intended to recognize “extraordinary achievements that directly impact on combat operations, but do not involve acts of valor or physical risks that combat entails.”
But that has led to public outrage over it from groups such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Military Order of the Purple Heart, which have expressed fears that it cheapens the significance of other combat medals that are awarded at risk of physical harm, injury or loss of life.
Rooney, an Army veteran, urged the Pentagon to reconsider its ranking of the new medal, which would be ranked above the Bronze Star and Purple Heart, in a letter to military top brass earlier this month. And the number of petitions demanding a change have continued to grow online on the White House’s “We the People” website. However, Pentagon officials have not said they would reconsider the medal’s placement.
Rooney said in a statement on the new bill that he and other veterans “had grave concerns” about the ranking of the medal.
“There is no greater sacrifice than risking your own life to save another on the battlefield,” he said, “and the order of precedence should appropriately reflect the reverence we hold for those willing to make that sacrifice.”
Murphy, a Navy veteran, said he strongly believed from his personal experiences of serving with “combat-wounded veterans at Walter Reed (Army Medical Center), that their Purple Heart should and must rank above the Distinguished Warfare Medal.”
"If the Pentagon will not reconsider the decision to rank this medal above the Purple Heart, the House will take action,” he said.

The nuclear reactor in your basement

[Vo]:Gizmag: "NASA's basement reactor"
Mark GibbsThu, 21 Feb 2013 10:15:58 -0800
BTW, did everyone see the Gizmag article "NASA's basement reactor" (
http://m.gizmag.com/article/26309). It's a bit fluffy and hand-waving but I
was intrigued by this section:

According to Zawodny, LENR isn’t what was thought of as cold fusion and it
doesn't involve strong nuclear forces. Instead, it uses weak nuclear
forces, which are responsible for the decay of subatomic particles. The
LENR process involves setting up the right conditions to turn these weak
forces into energy. Instead of using radioactive elements like uranium or
plutonium, LENR uses a lattice or sponge of nickel atoms, which holds
ionized hydrogen atoms like a sponge holds water.

The electrons in the metal lattice are made to oscillate so that the energy
applied to the electrons is concentrated into only a few of them. When they
become energetic enough, the electrons are forced into the hydrogen protons
to form slow neutrons. These are immediately drawn into the nickel atoms,
making them unstable. This sets off a reaction in which one of the neutrons
in the nickel atom splits into a proton, an electron and an antineutrino.
This changes the nickel into copper, and releases energy without dangerous
ionizing radiation.

The trick is to configure the process so that it releases more energy than
it needs to get it going. “It turns out that the frequencies that we have
to work at are in what I call a valley of inaccessibility,” Zawodny said.
“Between, say, 5 or 7 THz and 30 THz, we don't have any really good sources
to make our own controlled frequency.”

The nuclear reactor in your basement

February 19, 2013 by Bob Silberg

How would you like to replace your water heater with a nuclear reactor? That's what Joseph Zawodny, a senior scientist at NASA's Langley Research Center, hopes to help bring about. It would tap the enormous power of the atom to provide hot water for your bath, warm air for your furnace system, and more than enough electricity to run your house and, of course, your electric car.

If your thoughts have raced to Fukushima or Three Mile Island or Chernobyl, let me reassure you. Zawodny is not suggesting that you put that kind of reactor in your house. What he has in mind is a generator that employs a process called Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions. (The same process is sometimes called Lattice Energy Nuclear Reactions. We'll just call it LENR.) So what is LENR and how might it one day fill all your energy needs without risk of blowing up, melting down, or irradiating the neighbors?

Nuclear energy in a nutshell

The nuclear generators which currently provide some of the world's electricity use a type of fission in which a very heavy nucleus (meaning one with lots of protons and neutrons) such as uranium breaks up into two or more lighter nuclei, releasing energy in the process. The sun and all the other stars use nuclear fusion, in which two light nuclei (such as those of hydrogen) fuse together in an environment of very high temperature and pressure which overwhelms the mutual repulsion of their positive charges. Again, energy is released in the process—even more than in fission. We know how to use fusion in hydrogen bombs, but so far we lack the technology needed to harness it for more civilized purposes. In the 1980s, two scientists named Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann announced that they had developed a "cold fusion" process that could create fusion through chemical means, without the high temperature or pressure of stars and bombs. There was no theory to explain how that could be possible, and other scientists were unable to reliably reproduce the experiments, so cold fusion lacked credibility for most physicists. Some scientists have continued working on this idea though, and they sometimes call it "LENR." But this process is not what Dr. Zawodny is exploring. "There are a lot of people who are trying to just build something without understanding anything," Zawodny said. "It worked for Edison and the light bulb, but it took him a long time and that was a simple system. This is very complex. And if they make something that just barely works, and accidentally one in a thousand works really, really well, it's going to take down a house with their trial-and-error method."

In theory, a metal (gray) holding hydrogen ions (purple) as a sponge holds water (called a metal hydride) can provide one potential fuel for LENR."Several labs have blown up studying LENR and windows have melted," according to Dennis Bushnell, Langley's chief scientist, in an article he wrote for NASA's Future Innovation website. This, he wrote, indicates that "when the conditions are 'right' prodigious amounts of energy can be produced and released." But it's also an argument for the approach that the Langley researchers favor: master the theory first. The epiphany "For NASA Langley," according to Bushnell's article, "the epiphany moment on LENR was the publication of the Widom-Larsen Weak Interaction LENR Theory," which was published in 2006.

According to Zawodny and Bushnell, this theory provides a better explanation than "cold fusion" for the results which researchers have obtained over the last couple of decades. And it might explain much more than that. At a meeting of the American Nuclear Society in November 2012, the theory's co-developer, Lewis Larsen, speculated that LENR may occur naturally in lightning—not only on present-day Earth, but also in the primordial cloud of gas and dust that became our solar system. If true, LENR might solve a mystery uncovered by NASA's Genesis mission, that the pattern of oxygen isotopes on the sun differs greatly from that of Earth. The theoretical underpinnings of LENR are complex, but the basics are pretty easy to understand. Instead of splitting an atomic nucleus apart or ramming two mutually repelling nuclei together, Widom-Larsen's LENR simply offers a very slow-moving neutron to a nucleus.

According to Zawodny, nuclei presented with sluggish neutrons slurp them up like a hungry Texan with a bowl of firehouse chili. But like many a chili consumer, the nuclei can find that their indulgence makes them, shall we say, unstable. And while I am too polite to continue the chili metaphor past this point, the nuclei do find that emissions relieve their distress. With rare exception, Zawodny said, a nucleus which has lapped up one too many neutrons spits out an electron, which it gets by breaking up one of its neutrons into an electron and proton (and an anti-neutrino, but we can ignore that). So where it once had an extra neutron, making it an unstable isotope of whatever element it was, it now has an extra proton instead, which makes it a more stable isotope of a different element. This process releases energy which, hypothetically, can be used to generate electricity. EnlargeConcepts for an LENR-driven spaceplane developed by NASA and Spaceworks.

According to Zawodny, the challenge in making this work lies at the beginning of the process, generating those ultra-slow neutrons without expending more energy than the process yields. There are several hypothetical versions of the procedure, but here's a good example: We start by processing nickel so that it can hold hydrogen the way a sponge holds water. The hydrogen is ionized, meaning that each hydrogen atom has its electron stripped away, leaving only a proton. Electrons in the metal are made to oscillate together in such a way that the electromagnetic energy stored in tens of thousands of them is transferred to a relative few, giving them enough energy to merge with nearby protons (the hydrogen ions) and form slow-moving neutrons. Those neutrons, as we noted, are immediately captured by nuclei of the metal atoms, setting in motion a chain of events which turns the nickel into copper and releases useful energy.

The 1 percent solution

One percent of the nickel mined each year could meet the world's energy requirements at around a quarter of the cost of coal, according to estimates cited by Bushnell. There are other interesting options as well, like turning carbon into harmless nitrogen, the main component of our atmosphere. "I don't know what could possibly be cleaner than that," Zawodny said. "You're not sequestering carbon, you're totally removing carbon from the system." In fact, this would be a great way to dispose of some toxic carbon compounds, such as those that were used in electrical transformers. "It's just a nasty sludge that everyone doesn't know what to do with," he said. "That's perfect fuel, in theory." So what's the hitch? It's creating the right oscillation. "It turns out that the frequencies that we have to work at are in what I call a valley of inaccessibility," Zawodny said. "Between, say, 5 or 7 THz and 30 THz, we don't have any really good sources to make our own controlled frequency."

But solving that problem can wait until the theory is better understood. "From my perspective, this is still a physics experiment," Zawodny said. "I'm interested in understanding whether the phenomenon is real, what it's all about. Then the next step is to develop the rules for engineering. Once you have that, I'm going to let the engineers have all the fun." And he is sure that if the Widom-Larsen theory is shown to be correct, resources to support the necessary technological breakthroughs will come flooding in. "All we really need is that one bit of irrefutable, reproducible proof that we have a system that works," Zawodny said. "As soon as you have that, everybody is going to throw their assets at it. And then I want to buy one of these things and put it in my house."

Why Blacks and Women Should Not Have Guns

American Thinker ^ | February 28, 2013 | William A. Levinson

The Democratic Party believes that it owns the African-American vote, and it also looks to women for much of its support. This support requires serious reconsideration. The Colorado Democratic Party, as represented by State Rep. Joe Salazar, has said openly that women are too mentally unstable to handle firearms responsibly.

--snip--


Mfume's NAACP is not, however, the only source of African-American collaboration with racist gun laws. Pennsylvania House Bill 521 would require concealed-carry permit holders to purchase $1 million in liability insurance. Sponsors (we have not checked all of them) Waters, Brownlee, Thomas, and Brown are all African-Americans from Philadelphia who agree with racists that the basic right of self-defense should be contingent on one's socioeconomic status:
In 1879, the General Assembly of Tennessee banned the sale of any pistols other than "army or navy" model revolvers. This law effectively limited handgun ownership to whites, many of whom already possessed these Civil War service revolvers, or to those who could afford to purchase these more expensive firearms. These military firearms were among the best made and most expensive on the market, and were beyond the means of most blacks and laboring white people.
Racist swill from purported black leaders like Mfume and the above-named legislators is far more dangerous than that from traditional white supremacists, because most people recognize the latter for what they are and reject their words accordingly. We encourage African-American voters to look instead to people like Ken Blanchard ("Black Man with a Gun"), and the authors of this piece at BlackPlanet, for guidance on the Second Amendment.

Soooo- Which White House Hoodlum Threatened WaPo's Bob Woodward?

Reaganite Republican ^ | 28 February 2013 | Reaganite Republican


"You don't go around trying to say to reporters
'you're going to regret this'...
...makes me very uncomfortable"

___________________________________________________

Arrogant people tend to think they're invincible once they fall in love with their own empty legend. It's called 'delusions of grandeur', and man does Barack Obama seem the textbook example. Throw-in Chicago Machine training and you've got a delusional-n-dangerous fool who won't brook a micron of dissent.


But when this morally-warped megalomaniac ALWAYS gets his way by hectoring Republicans, the media, or anybody else in the way, where's the motivator for the guy to ever change?

Obama also thinks he owns the press, and I guess he's mostly right there- yet pride cometh before the fall: Rule #1 if you're going to pick a fight would be 'know what you're getting into'-
and maybe -just maybe- famed Washington Post investigative reporter Bob Woodward wasn't the one to screw with, huh-

Mr Woodward is of course currently engaged in -and winning- a very public debate with the White House, and came out with a scathing indictment yesterday of Obama Administration disinformation and reckless fiscal brinkmanship ("madness"), i.e. delaying military deployments (before the sequester even hits) due to the 'budgetary situation'.

Of course it's pure propaganda stagecraft designed to pressure Republicans into making a deal (on Obama's terms), since hitting the sequester deadline with no real catastrophes materializing -and current White House charades exposed- would be the worst possible thing that could happen in 'progressive' eyes (betraying the fact this country can survive
-even prosper- with a few cuts here and there).

Indeed, the increasingly skeptical Woodward -one of the few old-school journalists left in DC who actually attempt to do their job instead of just licking Obama's ass all the time- seems genuinely shocked by this administration's escalating lawlessness, underhanded maneuvering, media manipulation, and habitual dishonesty, all of which could be summed-up as a lack of good faith/duty/loyalty towards anything (or anybody) but themselves.
___________________________________________________
Bob Woodward: 'Color me a bit baffled...
I don't understand this White House- do you?'
___________________________________________________

When Woodward attempted to call and give the WH a heads-up that he was going to question some of the Administration's statements and assumptions re. sequester in his WaPo column, the reporter said the same WH 'senior' staffer that later threatened him "yelled at me for about an hour".

The reason for all the anxiety? Seems Obama was initially successful -as he too often is- at getting the country to believe the Republicans were at fault for Friday's looming deadline, when the idea for sequester initially sprang from his own sinister mind.

Unfortunately for Obummer, DC press legend Bob Woodward knew the truth, as he wrote about the 2011 deal that brought us to a mandatory sequester mechanism in his 2012 book. And he just blew to smithereens a fairy tale Obama worked quite hard to create -had over half the country bamboozled into thinking that the GOP was to blame (accordingly, they need to cave on new taxes)- exposing the serial prevaricator yet again.

Uh, isn't this the sort of thing Boehner and Musty Mitch ought to be doing?

Clearly the Obama regime is getting nervous as the sequester deadline draws near, and it seems that this -in combination with towering hubris- got them to thinking they could threaten and intimidate Bob Woodward into silence because his sole voice dared speak the truth.

Of course they cannot, and Woodward was on CNN within hours to talk about it. The only question now would be WHO is the White House SENIOR staffer that thinks he's Sammy The Bull?
