Executive privilege = something to hide; Supremes go against EPA; Mini drones; Barack didn't know......; Obama once again displays his total ignorance; Pelosi's terrible spin; Supremes against unions; U of Minn's ad against whites; Another lawsuit against Holder; Wind farms cause global warming; Dem superdelegates avoid National Convention; Where's the tv coverage of 2000 dead in Afghanistan?; Obama down 7 points in two weeks

"Executive privilege protects communications with the president, the human being of the president, not with people that work for him and the Justice Department," Judge Andrew Napolitano said on FOX News today.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Supreme Court threw out an $18 million penalty Thursday against a natural gas company convicted of violating an environmental law.
The court voted 6-3 in favor of Texas-based Southern Union Co. in an appeal of a penalty imposed for its improper storage of mercury in a building in Pawtucket, R.I.

The kinds of drones making the headlines daily are the heavily armed CIA and U.S. Army vehicles which routinely strike targets in Pakistan - killing terrorists and innocents alike.
But the real high-tech story of surveillance drones is going on at a much smaller level, as tiny remote controlled vehicles based on insects are already likely being deployed.
Over recent years a range of miniature drones, or micro air vehicles (MAVs), based on the same physics used by flying insects, have been presented to the public.
The fear kicked off in 2007 when reports of bizarre flying objects hovering above anti-war protests sparked accusations that the U.S. government was accused of secretly developing robotic insect spies.
Barack Obama: "Well I heard about it from the news reports. This is not something we were aware of in the White House and the Attorney General it turns out wasn't aware of either.
So this investigation will be complete, people who have screwed up will be held accountable but our overarching goal consistently has been to say we've got a responsibility not only to stop drugs from flowing north, we've also got a responsibility to make sure we are not helping to either arm or finance these drug cartels in Mexico."
Is it mere coincidence that around the same time Operation Fast and Furious commenced, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton acted to launch talks on a U.N. treaty to regulate the sales of small arms?   Is it also a coincidence that in October 2009, the U.S. State Department released a statement overturning the Bush administration's previous stance against such a treaty?
Secretary Clinton supported the talks stating, "Consensus is needed to ensure the widest possible support for the Treaty and to avoid loopholes in the Treaty that can be exploited by those wishing to export arms irresponsibly."

When Obama stopped in at Master Lock in Milwaukee, Wisconsin last week, he
was walking the plant and stopped to talk with a plant employee and looked
up at the banner hanging on the wall and said to the worker and people
around him, "It is great to be in a union shop, especially one as old as
this union is " - - - - pointing to the banner. He then said, "A Union shop
since 1848" - - - and then he went on to talk on what that banner stood for
and how important it was to display it and show your union support.
The worker then said to Obama that it was the flag of the State of Wisconsin
- - which was founded in 1848.
This was only reported by a local radio station in Milwaukee (1130AM) and
not by the major news networks - - - they didn't want to embarrass this President!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., declared that House Republicans are charging Attorney General Eric Holder with contempt of Congress not as part of an investigation into Operation Fast and Furious, but in order to weaken his ability to prevent voter suppression.
"They're going after Eric Holder because he is supporting measures to overturn these voter suppression initiatives in the states," Pelosi told reporters during her press briefing today. "This is no accident, it is no coincidence. It is a plan on the part of Republicans.
Supreme Court: Unions must notify non-union members to give them a chance to protest whenever they raise fees.

The University of Minnesota - Duluth (UMD) is now sponsoring an ad-campaign designed to achieve "racial justice" by raising awareness of "white privilege."
The project disseminates its message, that "society was setup for us [whites]" and as such is "unfair," through an aggressive campaign of online videos, billboards, and lectures. The ads feature a number of Caucasians confessing their guilt for the supposed "privilege" that comes along with their fair features.
WATCH BELOW: Group says it is "unfair" to be white
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------An "Inside the Beltway" watchdog group announced that it filed yet another Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the secretive Attorney General Eric Holder and the U.S. Department of Justice to obtain records related to the agency blocking a section of South Carolina Act R54 that would have required voters to present photo identification when voting.
Judicial Watch originally filed a FOIA application on Feb. 6, 2012 requesting any and all records "regarding, concerning or related to the Civil Rights Division’s denial of pre-clearance of Section 5 of South Carolina Act R54 (A27 H3003).
Sadly, as of June 19, the DOJ has failed to comply with the FOIA request, according to officials at Judicial Watch.
 In recent news, research points to the likely fact that wind farms are an unintentional contributing factor to global warming, “’Large wind-farms can increase local night time temperatures by fanning warmer air onto the ground, new research has revealed.-
Democratic superdelegates from the Rust Belt are boycotting their party’s convention in North Carolina amid fears that voting to nominate President Barack Obama for the general election will doom them to defeat in November.
The superdelegates, given a vote in the presidential nomination process because of their status as senior elected officials, want to avoid any association with Obama, who is politically toxic for many blue collar voters in the upper Mid-West and Appalachia.
Representative Mark Critz of Pennsylvania, who has just won a tough Democratic primary in a newly-drawn district, said he had decided to stay at home rather than travel to Charlotte for Obama’s formal nomination in early September.
On June 13, the CBS Evening News devoted a story by David Martin to the Afghanistan death count reaching 2,000, as Martin interviewed a mother of a fallen Marine. CBS was alone. There was no story last week on the Afghanistan death “milestone” on ABC, NBC, the PBS NewsHour – or even on the MSNBC programs found in Nexis, including Rachel “Our Military’s In a Perilous Drift” Maddow.

But the networks were all more aggressive when the 2,000 mark arrived in Iraq on October 25, 2005. The Big Three networks devoted 14 morning and evening news stories to the death toll from October 24 through the end of October, and another 24 anchor briefs or mentions. They used the number to spell “disaster for this White House.”

Gallup tracking poll: Obama at 43%, down seven points in two weeks
