Bill Maher; Chris Matthews; New MASS. Law; Governor (MI) Granholm;

HBO's Bill Maher: "I thought when we elected a black president, we were going to get a black president. You know, this [BP oil spill] is where I want a real black president. I want him in a meeting with the BP CEOs, you know, where he lifts up his shirt where you can see the gun in his pants. That's -- (in black man voice) we've got a 'motherfu**ing problem here?' Shoot somebody in the foot." [Well it sure is a good thing that we can't find any racism in these comments, eh?  And Obama's Interior Secretary has already said that he is "keeping his boot on their throats", after all.]
BP underwrote Chu's institute with a $500 million grant. Then Obama appointed him as energy secretary.
Chu is not a climate scientist, and won his Nobel for his work on lasers. But he was well-known at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for his outspoken concern about climate change and his commitment to developing clean energy long before Obama appointed him.

The Guardian writes: Chu is not a climate scientist, and won his Nobel for his work on lasers. [And he must have spent the nite at a Holiday Inn Express, no doubt.] But he was well-known at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for his outspoken concern about climate change and his commitment to developing clean energy long before Obama appointed him.
[The man who once sent a thrill up the leg of Chris  Matthews no longer pleases him] American Thinker opines:   Hot Air has a video of Chris Matthews saying something that I heartily agree with in toto. "If I hear one more time that Secretary Chu has a Nobel Prize I'm going to barf. I don't care. This idiotic cerebral meritocracy has got to step aside and let people who do things take over".    [He is commenting here on the brainiacs which Obama is employing, who have no experience in the business world, but fit Obama's desire to radicalize our government - and our country.]
Have you heard that the great state of Massachusetts has passed a new law on illegals immigrants in their state?  The measure, according to Conservative Outpost:  "which passed on a 28-10 vote as an amendment to the budget, would bar the state from doing business with any company found to break federal laws barring illegal immigrant hiring. It would also toughen penalties for creating or using fake identification documents, and explicitly deny in-state college tuition for illegal immigrants.

"The amendment would also require the state’s public health insurance program to verify residency through the Department of Homeland Security, and would require the state to give legal residents priority for subsidized housing.   Democrats had resisted such a sweeping proposal, but spent last evening negotiating today’s measure, shortly after a new polled showed 84 percent of the liberal-leaning state’s voters supported tough immigration rules barring state services to illegal immigrants. ...... [I wonder when Obama will tell us all how inappropriate this is, and when Sharpton and others will condemn the state for being racist, and which other states will boycott Massachusetts?]
As The NYT reports about this law:
The measures, which passed 28 to 10 in an amendment to a budget bill, would require state contractors to confirm that their workers were here legally and prohibit the contractors from doing business with the state if they were found to employ illegal immigrants.
The changes would also codify into law an existing state policy that bars illegal immigrants from qualifying for resident-tuition rates at state colleges. And they would require public housing agencies to give legal residents priority for subsidized housing.
In addition, the state attorney general’s office would be required to set up a hot line for people to anonymously report businesses that hire illegal immigrants, and to investigate any such reports.

Prince William County in Virginia has had a very similar immigration law to Arizona's since 2007...and it works!  (Be sure to watch past the commercial on "green jobs.")  80% of citizens surveyed support the law, illegals have fled the county, crime has been reduced by 38%, and there has not been ONE case of racial profiling reported.

The Washington Times opines:  On May 20, Oxford Union, the prestigious 187-year-old English debating society, formally considered the question of whether it was more important to focus on growing the economy or solving global warming. Climate realism won the day, 135 to 110. During the debate, Lord Whitty, former environment minister under the Labor government, claimed 95 percent of scientists were in agreement that man was responsible for a coming climatic cataclysm. Lord Monckton, representing climate realists, asked him to provide a reference backing up the claim. The audience jeered Lord Whitty for having none beyond, "Everyone knows it's true."  We think we need public policy that's based in facts, rather than facts that are based on a public agenda," Colorado State University professor Scott Denning said.

In 1895, the New York Times suggested the Earth was headed toward a "second glacial period" in which "countries now basking in the fostering warmth of the tropical sun will ultimately give way to the perennial frost and snow of the polar regions." By 1923, the Gray Lady had decided, "The Arctic seems to be warming up" as "so little ice has never before been noted." By the 1970s, schoolchildren were indoctrinated by textbooks blaming a new ice age on man's Earth abuse.  [When will it end, this belief that man actually has the power to significantly affect what this planet has the power to do to us?  We should be good stewards of the Earth, doing our small parts, for Mother Nature is in control, as always.]
It is encouraging that Gov. Jennifer Granholm, [Governor of Michigan] has issued an executive order (2009-44) abolishing the Michigan Climate Action Council. It should never have been created to begin with. Committing Michigan to regional greenhouse gas emission requirements to combat the elusive fear of global warming is fraught with peril for Michigan households and businesses. Many of the recommendations coming out of the Council will invariably lead to higher energy costs for heating and cooling homes and running businesses.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Tuesday he could “understand” if reporters thought he was responsible for keeping them in the dark about an administration position offered to Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) — but he had no immediate answers for reporters about details of the deal. A reporter asked Gibbs why he wouldn’t discuss the offer over many months, even as the administration contended that nothing inappropriate had taken place. “I’d have to ask counsel for a better answer,” Gibbs said.
