Obama - Don't Shred Documents; No Sharia Law For Oklahoma; AARP Priorities; Saudi Prince On Moving NYC Mosque to a Better Location; American for Prosperity; Unions Hold 99ers Meeting; $8 Billion Lost in Iraq;

The Hill opines: Republicans are likely to urge the Obama administration not to shred documents as they transition to the House majority. 

Before the election, GOP officials on Capitol Hill privately discussed the issue but refrained from publicly tackling it, not wanting to assume what would happen on Election Day.

 Now that Republicans will control the House, the shredding matter will move front and center. 

No one is accusing the Obama administration of destroying documents, but Republicans are expected to try to ensure that all records — on a range of issues — are kept intact.

Darrell West, a political scientist and director of governance studies at the Brookings Institution, said Republicans likely will formally ask the administration not to shred or delete any relevant documents that could be requested in a congressional probe.

“That’ll happen right away, because they want to make sure that the documentary record is preserved so that they have something to investigate,” said West.

Armed with the House majority, Republicans next year will enjoy subpoena power.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From NewsOK:  Oklahoma voters have approved a measure that would forbid judges from considering international law or Islamic law when deciding cases.
Republican Rex Duncan, the sponsor of the measure, called it a "pre-emptive strike" designed to close the door on activist judges "legislating from the bench or using international law or Sharia law."
Members of the Muslim community called the question an attack on Islam and some of them said they are prepared to file a lawsuit challenging the measure.

Have you been wondering why the AARP is supporting Obamacare?  Consider this:  Obamacare will force 14 million people into regular Medicare (my Medicare Plus Blue was just eliminated, as one example).  That will move many seniors to use AARP's Medigap Insurance for coverage.  Always follow the money....
Yahoo reports from DUBAI, United Arab Emirates:  A Saudi prince who has aided the imam spearheading a proposed Islamic center near New York's ground zero says it would be better to shift to another site not associated with the Sept. 11 attacks. In an interview with the Dubai-based Arabian Business magazine, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal says moving the planned mosque and other facilities would respect the memory of the 2001 attacks and allow American Muslims to choose a better location. It is reportedly the prince's first public comments on the dispute. He has contributed to the foundation of New York's Imam Feisal
Want to know the most effective way to stop President Obama’s policies?  Just ask him.
President Obama has said over 18 times, that your grassroots efforts with Americans for Prosperity, are the most effective way to stop his big government agenda.
President Obama said:  "That's the biggest problem that we have all across the country right now.  We've got great candidates who are taking their case directly to the American people, but they are being drowned out by groups like Americans for Prosperity."

World Net Daily writes: The U.S. Department of Defense got more than $9 billion from the sale of Iraqi oil and other revenue streams to be used for reconstruction inside the war-damaged nation and spent it but now cannot document where $8.7 billion of those funds went, according to an inspector general's report published online.
The military's response in the report noted that the records probably exist, it's just that they're probably archived, and it might take a long time to track them down.

The UK Telegraph wrote: US midterm elections: Barack Obama's world turned upside down as Democrats face electoral disaster

By abandoning his own rhetoric of bipartisanship, President Obama divided America and set the course for a heavy Democratic defeat in Tuesday's midterm elections, argues Toby Harnden. 

The irony of Obama being the blue-state president is acute. Back in 2004, the then state senator shot to international attention by mocking the pundits who "like to slice and dice our country into red states and blue States".
He declared: "There's not a liberal America and a conservative America. There's the United States of America. There's not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America. There's the United States of America."
Central to Obama's appeal in 2008 was his pledge to change Washington and to reach across the political aisle to work with Republicans in a new era of bipartisanship and co-operation.
I checked this email out on Snopes, which says this did happen in 2009: The State of Sonora is angry at the influx of Mexicans into Mexico. Nine state legislators from the Mexican State of Sonora traveled to Tucson to complain about Arizona 'S new employer crackdown on illegals from Mexico. It seems that many Mexican illegals are returning to their hometowns and the officials in the Sonora state government are ticked off.

A delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora was in Tucson to state that Arizona's new Employer Sanctions Law will have a devastating effect on the Mexican state.  At a news conference, the legislators said that Sonora, - Arizona's southern neighbor - made up of mostly small towns - cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools that it will face as Mexican workers return to their hometowns from the USA without jobs or money.
