Counterfeit Chinese electronic parts; Snyder's Offshore Wind Energy MOU; "Consensus" on arms sales; Black Panthers want to hang whites; Budget cuts for 9th Circuit discussed; No vote desired on Law of the Sea Treaty; Obama and his "blank screen"; Drones in America may be armed; Disclosing the id of jailed Pakistani doctor; Obama's birth certificate

Vast numbers of counterfeit Chinese electronic parts are being used in US military equipment, a key Senate committee has reported.
The failure of a key part could pose safety and national security risks and lead to higher costs for the Pentagon, the committee said.
US servicemen rely on a variety of "small, incredibly sophisticated electronic components" found in night vision systems, radios and GPS devices and the failure of a single part could put a soldier at risk, the report said.
The committee criticised China for failing to shut down counterfeit manufacturers and said that committee staff wanting to travel to China for the investigation had not been granted visas.
In a May 26, 2011 Mackinac Center article...." For instance a May 12, 2008, Memorandum of Understanding between Michigan and the United Kingdom pledged that the state and the UK would “work jointly to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and increase climate-friendly commerce”.
And just lately Gov. Synder has entered into an interstate offshore wind energy MOU with the  Obama Administration. Even though a study by Global Warming Policy Foundation in London concludes that wind power is simply too expensive to be worth using.
The United States reversed policy on Wednesday and said it would back launching talks on a treaty to regulate arms sales as long as the talks operated by consensus, a stance critics said gave every nation a veto.
The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush's administration, which had opposed such a treaty on the grounds that national controls were better.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the United States would support the talks as long as the negotiating forum, the so-called Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty, "operates under the rules of consensus decision-making."  [Am I the only one here who recalls that part of the implementation of the UN Agenda 21 is that in communities decisions are made not be votes, but by "consensus", or general opinion? 
However, they said insisting that decisions on the treaty be made by consensus "could fatally weaken a final deal."
"Governments must resist US demands to give any single state the power to veto the treaty as this could hold the process hostage during the course of negotiations. We call on all governments to reject such a veto clause," said Oxfam International's policy adviser Debbie Hillier.
The New Black Panther Party (NBPP) chairman wants to remind Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama that their organization “delivered” the president and his administration to office.  The New Black Panthers, who recently espoused their desire to hang whites and openly meet with a Holocaust-denying terror regime, believes Obama and Holder “owes them” a few favors.
These new incendiary comments come from NBPP Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz on a radio show hosted by his National Field Marshal, King Samir Shabazz. 
According to New Black Panther Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz:
  • If Republicans win the White House,There will be little mercy or no mercy on the New Black Panther Party”
  • The New Black Panthers “delivered” Obama into office
  • Obama “owes” the Black Panthers “some favors”
  • Obama and Holder showed the Black Panthers “mercy” in their voter intimidation case, where the DOJ controversially dropped charges against the group
  • Republicans are the “most powerful enemies in the world” and they “hate” the Black Panthers
  • Republicans will brand the Black Panthers “an official hate group, terrorists”
  • Does not know how much longer “President Obama and Eric Holder can hold out” in their favor.

  • Judges on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals plan to vacation in Hawaii on the taxpayers' dime, but they might see their budget cut by Congress as a result. "Ultimately, the Congress has the power to appropriate money, and we need to evaluate the judicial branch budget request in light of some of these expenditures," Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., the Ranking Member on the Senate Budget Committee, told Fox and Friends.
    Sessions and Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, have asked the court to consider cancelling the Hawaii conference, which will cost $1 million "and provide a chance for judges to partake in yoga, snorkeling and dance lessons," according to The Hill.
    The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee announced Wednesday he likely won't bring up the Law of the Sea Treaty for a vote before the November election.
    Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) said some lawmakers “on and off the committee” have candidly told him they'd “be more comfortable” if they could avoid having to cast the controversial vote during the campaign season.
    But the Oval Office has never seen a prevaricator quite like President Obama.
    President Obama has forged his entire political career around his ability to be whatever others want him to be. As Obama himself put it in his second autobiography, The Audacity of Hope, “I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their views.” But Obama isn’t just a blank screen: he is a Magic Mirror.
    The Federal Aviation Administration has allowed several police departments to use drones across the U.S. They are controlled from a remote location and use infrared sensors and high-resolution cameras.
    Chief Deputy Randy McDaniel of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office in Texas told The Daily that his department is considering using rubber bullets and tear gas on its drone.
    “We don’t need a situation where Americans feel there is in an invisible eye in the sky,” Jay Stanley, senior policy analyst at ACLU, told CBSDC.

    GOP Rep. King says Obama officials disclosed identity of jailed Pakistani doctor


    Arizona Officially Accepts Obama's Birth Record  [This has been a very successful ploy by our President to refuse to release any of his personal data.  He gets to keep positioning those who want the truth as conspiracy theorists.  This is one more prime example of his divisive ways as well as his arrogance and narcissism.  He should be ashamed of himself, as he could have put this to rest years ago and chose not to.]
