Cantor Releases Updated Report on ‘Imperial Presidency’

WFB ^ | March 14, 2014 1:10 pm | Elizabeth Harrington
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R., Va.) updated his report on the “imperial presidency” on Thursday, adding to the dozens of examples of executive overreach by the Obama administration. “Our Founders created a series of checks and balances for our democracy to prevent any one of the three branches of government from becoming too powerful,” Cantor said. “Today, this system is under threat as the executive branch continues to bypass Congress and use executive action to promote its own agenda.”

Issa to Cummings: You’re wrong. We can hold Lois Lerner in contempt!

Patrick Howley

 In a sternly-worded letter to Rep. Elijah Cummings — and obtained by The Daily Caller — Rep. Darrell Issa said that his House Oversight Committee is well within its rights to hold ex-IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt despite Cummings’ arguments to the contrary.“On March 12, 2014, you sent a letter to Speaker Boehner arguing that the House of Representatives is barred ‘from successfully pursuing contempt proceedings against former IRS official Lois Lerner,’” Issa wrote. “Your position was based on an allegedly ‘independent legal analysis’ provided by your lawyer, Stanley M. Brand, and your ‘Legislative Consultant,’ Morton Rosenberg,” he wrote.Brand and Rosenberg claimed that Lerner was not “made unequivocally certain that her failure to respond would result in criminal contempt prosecution.” But Issa strongly disagreed.“You and your lawyers and consultants are wrong on the facts and the law,” Issa wrote. “The Facts: Lerner knew that the Committee had rejected her privilege objection and that, consequently, she risked contempt should she persist in refusing to answer the Committee’s questions.”Though Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan confirmed to TheDC that the committee is “moving” toward contempt for Lerner, Cummings’ recent letter to Boehner was widely reported on in the mainstream press to bolster the story that the committee is unable to compel Lerner to testify.But Issa’s letter walks Cummings step-by-step through flaws in the Democrats’ argument.“You and your lawyers and consultants also misunderstand the law. Contrary to your insistence, the courts do not require the invocation by the Committee of certain magic words; rather (and sensibly), the courts have required only that congressional committees provide witnesses with a ‘fair appraisal of the committee’s ruling on an objection,’ thereby leaving the witness with a choice: comply with the relevant committee’s demand for testimony, or risk contempt,” Issa wrote.“You and your lawyers and consultants refer specifically to Quinn v. United States. In that case, however, the Supreme Court held only that, because ‘[a]t no time did the committee [at issue there] specifically overrule [the witness’s] objection based on the Fifth Amendment,’ the witness ‘was left to guess whether or not the committee had accepted his objection.’ Here, of course, the Committee expressly rejected Lerner’s objection, and specifically notified Lerner and her counsel of the same: She was left to guess at nothing,” Issa wrote.“Second, Quinn expressly rejects your insistence on the talismanic incantation by the Committee of certain magic words: ‘[T]he committee is not required to resort to any fixed verbal formula to indicate its disposition of the objection. So long as the witness is not forced to guess the committee’s ruling, he has no cause to complain,’” Issa wrote.

BlackLight Power, Inc. Announces Generation of Millions of Watts of Power from Water...

Blacklight Power Website ^ | 3/14/14 | Blacklight staff
Cranbury, NJ (January 14, 2014) — BlackLight Power, Inc. (BLP) today announced that it has produced millions of watts of power with its breakthrough Solid Fuel-Catalyst-Induced-Hydrino-Transition (SF-CIHT) patent pending technology in its laboratories. Using a proprietary water-based solid fuel confined by two electrodes of a SF-CIHT cell, and applying a current of 12,000 amps through the fuel, water ignites into an extraordinary flash of power. The fuel can be continuously fed into the electrodes to continuously output power. BlackLight has produced millions of watts of power in a volume that is one ten thousandths of a liter corresponding to a power density of over an astonishing 10 billion watts per liter. As a comparison, a liter of BlackLight power source can output as much power as a central power generation plant exceeding the entire power of the four former reactors of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, the site of one of the worst nuclear disasters in history. Our safe, non-polluting power-producing system catalytically converts the hydrogen of the H2O-based solid fuel into a non-polluting product, lower-energy state hydrogen called “Hydrino”, by allowing the electrons to fall to smaller radii around the nucleus. The energy release of H2O fuel, freely available in the humidity in the air, is one hundred times that of an equivalent amount of high-octane gasoline. The power is in the form of plasma, a supersonic expanding gaseous ionized physical state of the fuel comprising essentially positive ions and free electrons that can be converted directly to electricity using highly efficient magnetohydrodynamic converters. Simply replacing the consumed H2O regenerates the fuel. Using readily-available components, BlackLight has developed a system engineering design of an electric generator that is closed except for the addition of H2O fuel and generates ten million watts of electricity, enough to power ten thousand homes. Remarkably, the device is less than a cubic foot in volume. To protect its innovations and inventions, multiple worldwide patent applications have been filed on BlackLight’s proprietary technology. This breakthrough transformational power technology can be witnessed in a live demonstration hosted by BlackLight of on January 28th at 11 AM. Details and updates will be posted at the company website (http://www.blacklightpower.com/). Those interested in attending can contact BlackLight to preregister for this limited availability event. Applications and markets for the SF-CIHT cell extend across the global power spectrum, including thermal, stationary electrical power, motive, and defense. Given the independence from existing infrastructure, grid in the case of electricity and fuels in the case of motive power, the SF-CIHT power source is a further game changer for all forms of transportation: automobile, freight trucks, rail, marine, aviation, and aerospace in that the power density is one million times that of the engine of a Formula One racer, and ten million times that of a jet engine. The SF-CIHT cell uses cheap, abundant, nontoxic, commodity chemicals, with no apparent long-term supply issues that might preclude commercial, high volume manufacturing. The projected cost of the SF-CIHT cell is between $10 and $100/kW compared to over one hundred times that for conventional power sources of electricity. BlackLight’s previously reported pioneering solid fuels and CIHT electrochemical cell use the same catalyst as the newly invented SF-CIHT cells, and they served as a model for Dr. Mills to invent the breakthrough plasma producing SF-CIHT cell. These background technologies have been validated by industry. BlackLight’s results of multiples of the maximum theoretical energy release for representative solid fuels was replicated at Perkin Elmer’s Field Application Laboratory at their facility using their commercial instrument. Moreover, our advanced CIHT electrochemical cell was independently replicated offsite as well. “We at The ENSER Corporation have performed about thirty tests at our premises using BLP’s CIHT electrochemical cells of the type that were tested and reported by BLP in the Spring of 2012, and achieved the three specified goals,” said Dr. Ethirajulu Dayalan, Engineering Fellow, of The ENSER Corporation. “We independently validated BlackLight’s results offsite by an unrelated highly qualified third party. We confirmed that hydrino was the product of any excess electricity observed by three analytical tests on the cell products, and determined that BlackLight Power had achieved fifty times higher power density with stabilization of the electrodes from corrosion.” Dr. Terry Copeland, who managed product development for several electrochemical and energy companies including DuPont Company and Duracell added, “Dr. James Pugh (then Director of Technology at ENSER) and Dr. Ethirajulu Dayalan participated with me in the independent tests of CIHT cells at The ENSER Corporation’s Pinellas Park facility in Florida starting on November 28, 2012. We fabricated and tested CIHT cells capable of continuously producing net electrical output that confirmed the fifty-fold stable power density increase and hydrino as the product.” The disclosure of one of BlackLight’s patent application that was recently-filed worldwide, its 10 MW electric SF-CIHT cell system engineering design and simulation, high-speed video of millions of watts of supersonically expanding SF-CIHT cell plasma, The ENSER Corporation and Dr. Terry Copeland validation reports on the prior generation CIHT electrochemical cells, and the Perkin Elmer report on solid fuels are publicly available on BlackLight’s webpage (http://www.blacklightpower.com/). Technical papers by BlackLight providing the experimental tests of plasma to electric conversion, results of excess energy production from solid fuels, results of continuous electricity production at fifty times higher power density than prior generation CIHT electrochemical cells, and the detailed chemistry and identification of Hydrinos by ten analytical methods that laboratories can follow and replicate are given at http://www.blacklightpower.com/. About BlackLight Power BlackLight Power, Inc. is the inventor of a new primary energy source applicable to essentially all power applications such as thermal, electrical, automotive, trucking, rail, marine, aviation, aerospace, and defense. The BlackLight Process, the power source, is the process of releasing the latent energy of the hydrogen atom by forming Hydrinos. The SF-CIHT cell was invented by Dr. Mills to release this energy directly as electricity from water as the only source of fuel. For more information about the Company, please visit http://www.blacklightpower.com/. Glossary: BlackLight Process: A novel chemical process invented by Dr. Mills that causes the latent energy stored in the hydrogen atom to be released as a new primary energy source. Hydrino: A new form of hydrogen, which was theoretically predicted by Dr. Mills and produced and characterized by BLP. Hydrinos are produced as energy is released from the hydrogen atom as the electron transitions to a lower-energy state, resulting in a smaller radius hydrogen atom. (Note: The identity of the dark matter of the universe as Hydrinos is supported by BlackLight’s spectroscopic and analytical results as well as astrophysical observations.) SF-CIHT Cell: Each SF-CIHT cell comprises two electrodes that confine a highly electrically conducive H2O-based solid fuel that serves as a source of reactants to form Hydrinos. A low-voltage, very high current (about one thousand times that of household currents) ignites the water to form hydrinos and cause a burst of plasma power of millions of watts that can be directly converted to electricity using proven plasma to electric power conversion technology such as a magnetohydrodynamic converter. Spectral Emissions: Spectral emission of an atom such as hydrogen is its unique signature that serves as a fingerprint of its characteristics. Each line of the spectrum is characteristic of and identifies the energy levels of the atom. The Hydrino signature is unique in that it comprises a continuum of wavelengths, as opposed to discrete lines, and the energy is in the soft X-ray region. This indicates that hydrogen has more stable states than previously thought possible or accounted for by the historical theory of quantum mechanics. Magnetohydrodynamic Converter: An electrical generator that uses no moving parts. It comprises a magnet as in a conventional generator, but the conductor that moves in this case is the flowing plasma that produces a voltage at a pair of electrodes that are perpendicular to both the direction of plasma flow and the magnetic field of the magnet.

Sarah Palin vs. Mitch McConnell (Senate Conservatives Fund email)

senateconservatives.com ^ | 3/14/14

Fellow Conservatives: In a rare moment of candor for a career politician, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) told the New York Times last week that his goal is to defeat conservative candidates across the country. McConnell vowed to "crush them everywhere." Mitch McConnell believes that if he can defeat conservative candidates, you will give up the fight and stop working with groups like the Senate Conservatives Fund to elect principled leaders to the Senate. The Times reported that McConnell's goal "is to deny them any Senate primary victories, cut into their fund-raising and diminish them as a future force in Republican politics." McConnell doesn't want the grassroots to have a say in these elections. Instead, he wants to pick the candidates so he can keep cutting deals with the Democrats to pass bailouts, more debt, higher taxes, and funding for Obamacare. This is why conservatives must worker harder than ever to nominate principled candidates in the upcoming primary elections. SARAH PALIN BACKS CONSERVATIVES Yesterday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin endorsed two of the candidates that Mitch McConnell is trying to "crush." Palin announced her support for college president Ben Sasse in Nebraska and state senator Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. Sarah Palin (R-AK)Palin called Sasse "a proven problem solver" and credited him with turning around Midland University. She said Sasse "won’t forget who sent him there because his life is firmly grounded in his small town Nebraska roots." Likewise, Palin praised McDaniel for "fighting for conservative principles in the Mississippi State Senate" and for supporting "a return to the original checks and balances of the Constitution." Sarah Palin isn't afraid to stand up to the party bosses in Washington and she's been a strong and effective ally in the effort to elect principled leaders.

Obama’s Orwellian View Of Freedom!

Investor's Business Daily ^ | 03/13/2014 | IBD Staff
Liberty: President Obama wants Democrats to reclaim the word "freedom" as their own. But what he describes as freedom is little more than deeper dependence on government. Not exactly what the Founders had in mind.
In a recent speech to the Democratic National Committee, the president lamented that "we've let the other side define the word 'freedom' for too long." Then, as he often does, Obama set up a straw man argument, claiming to Republicans freedom means "what's in it for me?" or "I've got no obligations to anybody." So what is "freedom," Mr. Obama?

An ‘Onslaught’ of White-on-Black Murder? : Al Sharpton vs. Reality

FrontPage Mag ^ | 03/14/2014 | Colin Flaherty
Activists from around the country marched on Tallahassee Monday to protest what one writer for Salon is calling “open season on black teenagers: The onslaught of white murder.” Speakers such as Al Sharpton reminded the crowd of the most famous example of this onslaught from two years ago, when George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin. A jury ruled it was self defense. The next example was last year, when Michael Dunn shot Jordan Davis after feeling threatened by Davis and his friends.Earlier this month, a jury found Dunn guilty of three charges of second degree murder for firing several bullets into a car, but could not reach a verdict for the killing of Jordan Davis. This prompted howls of protest from black writers and activists who say these two killings form a trend.Several national media outlets including Time and USA Today glommed on to the narrative: Black people are victims of white violence. Not the other way around, despite crime statistics that show white-on-black crime is a rarity compared to black-on-white crime and black mob violence.Much of this violence is documented in White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore it.If everything that speakers and reporters at the rally knew came from the daily newspapers, they could be forgiven for not being aware of the disproportionate nature of racial violence. So let’s fill in a few blanks with recent examples:In Annapolis, Maryland, two black men, Devery Kelley and Cornell Robinson were arrested earlier this month for robbing a pregnant woman while she was in labor on her way to the hospital delivery room.In Madison, Wisconsin, about the same time as the protest, police arrested six black people for the home invasion and beating of a young couple. They were also charged with sexual assault on the woman, who was six months pregnant.In Seattle last week, police found 100 black people fighting in the street. Some were shooting guns. Some wore black ski masks. No one was arrested.Ski masks seem to be a popular accessory this year: In Washington, D.C. over the weekend, black people wearing ski masks fired guns and threatened a homeowner who confronted a crowd of 100 black people fighting and stomping on the hood of her car. The Washington Post reported that “someone wearing a ski mask used a racial slur, told her to shut up and threatened to kill her.”When she pointed the offenders out to police, they refused to question or even approach the suspects.When the woman’s husband went to the police station the next day to complain about the lack of police action toward violence in her recently gentrified neighborhood, “he was told that officers are instructed not to engage large crowds if it might put them in danger.”In Dayton, Ohio over the weekend, a large group of black people were fighting downtown. When police arrived to break it up, James White attacked the officers. They arrested him.Over the weekend near Rochester, a large group of black people were fighting in a bowling alley when one man was hit in the head with a bowling ball. Four were arrested.In Stamford, Conn. on Saturday, a store owner tried to stop a group of black people from stealing several bottles of liquor. The alleged thieves attacked the store owners and their family, breaking a bottle over the woman’s head. Police said one of the suspects “kicked and spit on officers.”In Dallas less than a month ago, career criminal Deyfon Pipkins was shot and killed while breaking into the home of a senior citizen. This was just the latest of several burglaries at this house. The local Fox affiliate reports Pipkins had a criminal record that was “18 pages long.”Soon after the killing, several relatives complained about the homeowner, said the Fox affiliate. “He could have used a warning,” said Lakesha Thompson, Pipkins’ sister-in-law. “He could have let him know that he did have a gun on his property and he would use it in self-defense.”In Mobile, Alabama, the relatives of Adric White did not like it any better when he was shot in November at a discount store he was robbing. “If no one had a gun up to him, if no one pointed a gun at him – what gives him the right to think that it’s okay to just shoot someone?” a relative, who wished to remain anonymous, told FOX10. “You should have just left the store and went wherever you had to go in your car or whatever.”In Milwaukee Friday afternoon, a large group of black people at a McDonald’s restaurant were fighting and destroying property. Nine black people were arrested.On Friday in Chicago Heights, 20 black students from Bloom Trail High School were fighting and attacking security guards in what local news is calling a “massive brawl.” Some of it was caught on video. Nine were arrested.Near Minneapolis a week ago, a group of 15 black people were fighting at an LA Fitness. They were throwing free weights and barbells at gym patrons and staff. When police arrived, they fought them too. Some on video.Last Thursday in Omaha, a black man shot Brandon Samuels dead. They were at a party following a Miley Cyrus’s “Bangerz Tour” concert when Samuels tried to stop the man who was attacking a woman. The man left and returned with two friends and a gun. They shot Samuels in the neck and seriously wounded another.In St. Louis on Sunday, dozens of black people rioted in the middle of the afternoon, in the middle of a street, in the middle of a popular business district called the Delmar Loop, in the middle of a crowd of people with cell phone cameras, in the middle of an area known for frequent and regular black mob violence often caught on video. Then they looted a nearby Family Dollar store. Police took 20 into custody and released them to their parents without arresting anyone.In Austin, Texas on Friday, the headline tells the story: “Another brutal beating in Downtown Austin has been caught on camera — this time the victims are two women.” This time the crowd was about a dozen black people. The women were beaten unconscious.On Friday in Flint, again the headline tells the story: Brawl involving several teens in Flint sends two girls to hospital, police say. More than a dozen black people were involved. And yes, it happens quite often there.On Monday in the San Francisco Bay area, a black passenger on a BART train harassed and assaulted white passengers. On video.On Monday in Atlanta, Kenneth Temple and Rendauldos Chisolm were charged with first degree murder for beating, robbing and killing the manager of a Taco Bell.In Denver, police are looking for 5 black people responsible for a crime spree including 18 robberies over the last seven weeks — that they know about. So far.Over the weekend in Manhattan, Kyle Rogers was found unconscious and bloody on the street after being attacked Sunday morning. On video. The attack left Rogers with several broken bones in his face and jaw. Rogers is one of hundreds of victims of the spontaneous racial violence that some call the Knockout Game.Police are looking for a black man in connection with the assault — one of dozens of such assaults in New York over the last several months. Many are directed at Orthodox Jews. After one recent attack, city council member Laurie Cumbo explained it all: Black people don’t like Jewish people that much. “The accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success.”Are we clear?In Southern Maryland early Sunday morning, 50 to 100 black people were in a convenience store parking lot, fighting and cussing out police and refusing orders to stop. Four were arrested.Last week in Pittsburgh, Penn., police charged a black man, Allen Darell Wade, in the shooting death of two white sisters who lived next door. Wade said he is being set up.This is a long list: All part of a pattern if you just know how to look, said Mychal Denzel Smith in The Nation magazine. “There’s nothing new under America’s racist sun,” said Smith. “The cynic in me starts to believe this is exactly what white people want. It’s as though our cries of ‘Murder! Lynching!’ only make it easier for white America to accept black death.”The local papers in Madison, Wisconsin are calling the sexual assault of a pregnant woman the worst crime in that town in years. Perhaps they can discuss it at the 15th Annual White Privilege Conference later this month. More than 2000 people are expected to attend.In Madison.*Don’t miss Colin Flaherty discuss his book, White Girl Bleed a Lot, on The Glazov Gang:

Obamacare's problem: You can't fix stupid!

NBC ^ | 03/14/2014 | Jake Novak
It was supposed to be the most burning crisis in America: the 30 million, 40 million, or even 50 million of us, (depending on which politician was screaming the loudest), who didn't have health insurance and were clamoring to get it in order to avoid everything from bankruptcy to death. So the Obama administration and the Democrats in Congress, gave us the Affordable Care Act. And they did it with such urgency that they didn't care that not a single Republican in Congress voted for it, and they didn't care that it took legislative chicanery to pass it despite the Democrat super-majority. Nope, the millions of uncovered Americans desperate for affordable health insurance just couldn't wait any longer.
