White House Atrocities Prevention Board, Exxon to drill for Russia; Kagan helped write Critical Race Theory; Teaching community organizing in public schools; Gender Bender Day at school; Supremes have questions while Arizona touts results; Mexicans moving back; EPA plans to crucify and make examples of oil companies;

World Net Daily writes: President Obama’s National Security Adviser Samantha Power will head the new White
House Atrocities Prevention Board, which is tasked with formulating a response to war
crimes, crimes against humanity and mass atrocities.
Power helped to found a global military doctrine called Responsibility to Protect that was
also devised by several controversial characters, including Palestinian legislator Hanan
Ashrawi, a staunch denier of the Holocaust who long served as the deputy of late
Palestinian Liberation Organization leader Yasser Arafat.[This woman is married to the
radical Cass Sunstein, buddy of Obama.  She was thrown off Obama's campaign in 2004
when she called Hillary Clinton a monster.  Also remember that Obama just recently signed into law a bill which among other things was to put an end to all the President's Czars.  He immediately said he would not comply
with that part of the law, along with about 20 others.]
Breitbart reports: As a result, the price we’re paying per-gallon for gasoline is steadily
climbing, and othercountries are choosing to go where we won’t for oil. Thus the oil Canada
was going to sellus via Keystone will now go to China and oil up near the Arctic will be
going to Russia. Andthe company Russia has hired to do the extraction is none other than
 Exxon Mobil.
Think about how backward things are under Obama—the largest oil company in America is
going to be drilling in waters around the Arctic where they expect to find 85 billion barrels in
recoverable oil. And instead of sending it to Texas refineries, and thereafter to gas stations
across America, the oil will be sent to Russia and refined for their use. http://www.breitbart.

Breitbart News has discovered previously unknown handwritten

notes from [Supreme Court Justice] Elena Kagan to radical

professor Derrick Bell, sent to Bell as Kagan worked on his

seminal 1985 article on Critical Race Theory in the Harvard Law


(99 Harv. L. Rev. 4).

The notes, which were not among materials presented to the Senate during Justice Kagan’s confirmation hearings, are preserved among Bell’s papers at the New York University archives.

Indoctrination 101: 'Gender Bender Day' leads to 'Social

Justice Week' (Part 2) reported on two events held during
“Social Justice Week” at Chicago Public Schools’ Jones College
Prep. One event featured a community organizer who taught
students how to protest, and engaged in inflammatory rhetoric
 against the National Rifle Association.

Moody explained that Social Justice Week came about after a botched “Gender Bender
Day,” held during Spirit Week in the fall. On that day, boys could dress like girls and vice
versa, with the goal being to make the school more inclusive for students who struggle with
their gender identity.

It backfired, resulting in the identity-questioning students feeling ridiculed. School leaders
decided a full-blown Social Justice Week was warranted. Moody thought the school could
handle it because Jones College Prep is “pretty hip and pretty progressive and pretty open-

Washington Timers reports: Supreme Court justices took a dim view of the Obama administration’s claim that it can stop Arizona from enforcing immigration laws, telling government lawyers during oral argument Wednesday that the state appears to want to push federal officials, not conflict with them.
“It seems to me the federal government just doesn’t want to know who’s here illegally,” Chief
Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said at one point.
Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli Jr. said the federal government has limited resources and
should have the right to determine the extent of calls it gets about possible illegal
immigrants. “These decisions have to be made at the national level,” he said.
But even Democratic-appointed justices were uncertain of that. “I’m terribly confused by your answer,” said Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who went on to say that the federal government can always decline to pick up illegal immigrants when Arizona officials call.
“It seems odd to think the federal government is deciding on employer sanctions and has unconsciously decided not to punish employees,” she told Mr. Clement. Only eight justices were present for the arguments. Justice Elana Kagan recused herself  from the case, presumably because she was the Obama administration’s solicitor general in 2010, when the law was being debated in Arizona.  Justice Scalia asked: just what does State Sovereignty mean if it does not include the ability to defend your borders?

CNS News reports: At a press conference on Tuesday on Capitol Hill, former State
Senator Russell Pearce said that the law has achieved several of its goals, including the
voluntary departure of thousands of illegal aliens from Arizona, a reduction in crime and
prison population, and a shrinking number of students in Mesa Public Schools that led to
the closure of 13 elementary schools.
CNS News reports on just what kind of government executives our President has hired,
and the total disregard for civility when dealing with Americans.  Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK)
took to the Senate floor today to draw attention to a video of atop EPA official saying the
EPA’s “philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies - just as
the Romans crucified random citizens in areas they conquered to ensure obedience.
Inhofe quoted a little-watched video from 2010 of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
official, Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, admitting that EPA’s “general philosophy” is
to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies.

I was in a meeting once and I gave an analogy to my staff about my philosophy of  enforcement, and I think it was probably a little crude and maybe not appropriate for the meeting, but I’ll go ahead and tell you what I said:  “It was kind of like how the Romans used to, you know, conquer villages in the Mediterranean.  They’d go in to a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw and they’d crucify them. “Then, you know, that town was really easy to manage for the next few years.”
“It’s a deterrent factor,” Armendariz said, explaining that the EPA is following the Romans’ philosophy for subjugating conquered villages.
CNS News reports: First Lady Michelle Obama boasted at a campaign event in Omaha,
Neb. on Tuesday that "we made history" when the president's health care proposal was
enacted and the administration issued a regulation mandating that insurance companies
provide women with free contraceptives. The regulation mandates that nearly all health
insurance plans in the United States must provide women with sterilizations and all FDA-
approved contraceptives (including those that can induce abortions) without any fees or
Free Beacon reports: Members of the media are questioning the Obama administration’s
numerous “official business” trips to swing states, during which he has been giving stump
speeches and raising campaign funds.
High-profile Washington reporters engaged in a line of questioning on Twitter today that
seems to indicate that even staunch supporters of the president think that the use of
taxpayer funds for campaign trips is getting out of hand.

The Des Moines Register writes: A Des Moines woman who publicly thanked President Barack Obama on Tuesday for helping her obtain health insurance actually is receiving her coverage through a long-
standing state program.  Ibson said Wednesday that she didn’t mean to imply that her current coverage was provided by the new federal health reform program.
Yahoo News writes: The good news is President Barack Obama has solved the illegal
problem. According to the Washington Times, a study suggests the outflow of
Mexican illegals has  exceeded the inflow for the first time since the Great Depression. The bad news is the reason for this outcome is that under Obama there are not enough
jobs, even those that native-born Americans will not do. Mexican illegal immigrants are
increasingly braving their own country's drug violence in lieu of braving the bad economy in
the U.S.
