Channel 3000 reports: Republicans will stay in control of the state Senate after surviving several recall challenges on Tuesday.
Republicans on Tuesday successfully defended four seats in recall elections, and Democrats picked up two seats.
The MacIver News Service has reported that more than $11 million in labor union money has been shuffled into Wisconsin to fund third party political advertising to benefit the Democratic candidates. Earlier this week we also reported on a Get Out the Vote Scheme that appeared to run afoul of Wisconsin election law. The group, Wisconsin Jobs Now! was offering food and prizes to voters who then hopped in a van and were shuttled to Milwaukee City Hall to vote early via absentee ballot. (The use of ‘walking around money’ and such inducements for voting may be common in other states but they are illegal in Wisconsin.)  After our report, the group began to scrub their internet history to hide their connection to another liberal activist group, Citizen Action of Wisconsin.
Expose Obama reports: Though it is unrelated to their mission,the Department of Defense,Homeland Security,Commerce and Housing are among the federal agencies that will focus on helping minorities get green under an Obama administration plan that aims to bring “environmental justice” to poor and underserved communities nationwide.
The effort was launched by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) last fall and the agency has doled out millions of dollars in “environmental justice grants” to dozens of left-wing groups,including some dedicated to helping illegal immigrants. Earlier this year the administration dedicated an additional $7 million to study how pollution,stress and social factors affect “poor and underserved communities”…
Besides the previously mentioned,the Department of Education,Veterans Affairs,Agriculture,Transportation,Justice,Health and Labor have all been forced to develop “environmental justice strategies to protect the health of people living in communities overburdened by population.”

Personal Liberty reports: Democratic nonsense aside, the truth is that Republicans:
  1. Raised the debt ceiling enough to take the pressure off Obama until after the 2012 elections,
  2. Were not able to assure that there will be no tax hikes in the near future (trust me, there will be),
  3. And rather than cutting spending, merely slowed the growth of spending (as Republicans have been doing for decades) from an Obama baseline that would have been unheard of even in the George W. Bush years.[E11343050]&rrid=39458277
The Washington Times writes: Pres Obama, show some guts & arrest the CEO of Standard & Poors. These criminals brought down the economy in 2008& now they will do it again,” Mr. Moore wrote.
He went on to link approvingly to an article last week in the Guardian, a left-wing British newspaper, about a police raid in Milan against the offices of S&P and fellow ratings agency Moody’s. Italian police were searching for evidence on whether the rating agencies, in the words of a local prosecutor, “respect regulations as they carry out their work”.
“Here’s how they roll in Italy when it comes to these bastards,” Mr. Moore cheered.
CBS reports: Mayor Michael Nutter today announced a tighter weekend curfew in the Center City and University City regions of the city, as he continues grappling with the threat of “flash mobs” in Philadelphia.
Nutter today described those engaging in flash mob rampages (see previous story) as “a tiny minority of ignorant, reckless fools.”

The UK Daily Mail reports: Mayor Michael A. Nutter, telling marauding black youths “you have damaged your own race,” imposed a tougher curfew Monday in response to the latest “flash mob” — spontaneous groups of teens who attack people at random on the streets of the city’s tourist and fashionable shopping districts.
“Take those God-darn hoodies down, especially in the summer,” Mr. Nutter, the city’s second black mayor, said in an angry lecture aimed at black teens. “Pull your pants up and buy a belt ‘cause no one wants to see your underwear or the crack of your butt.”
[Since mainstream media won't mention that in mob rages at the Wisconsin State Fair, at the Michigan beach and the Mag Mile in Chicago, and now in center city Philadelphia are black-on-white rages, I will.  Be forewarned!]

NewsDze-Zimbabwe: This is the shocking moment a young man is apparently forced to hand over all of his clothes after appearing to be stripped naked during lawless riots overnight.

Internet rumours last night claimed that on top of the widespread destruction across London and Birmingham, people were having their clothes removed by looters as police attempted to contain the criminality.
The Daily Caller writes: Federal payments required by President Barack Obama’s health care law are being understated by as much as $50 billion per year because official budget forecasts ignore the cost of insuring many employees’ spouses and children, according to a new analysis. The result could cost the U.S. Treasury hundreds of billions of dollars during the first ten years of the new health care law’s implementation.
“The Congressional Budget Office has never done a cost-estimate of this [because] they were expressly told to do their modeling on single [person] coverage,”

The Hill writes: Representatives of MoveOn, Rebuild the Dream and the Center for Economic Policy and Research will join Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) on Tuesday to launch a progressive “Contract for the American Dream” to urge the administration and Congress to turn away from budget cutting and focus on job creation.
In 10 bullet points, the Contract calls for massive new spending and taxes.
At the top of the list are items President Obama has been calling for: investing in infrastructure, clean energy strengthening public education. These “winning the future” items were included in Obama’s 2012 budget, which was rejected unanimously in the Senate which had become focused on budget cutting by late spring.

The Hill opines: Al Gore is using this hot summer to turn up the heat on climate skeptics.
The former vice president angrily denounced "bulls--t" from climate skeptics whom he accused of emulating the disinformation tactics once used by the tobacco industry.

Real Aspen reported on Gore’s comments at an Aspen Institute forum Thursday and included an audio snippet on its website.
Gore said:
The model they innovated in that effort was transported whole cloth into the climate debate. And some of the exact same people — by name, I can go down a list of their names — are involved in this. And so what do they do? They pay pseudo-scientists, to pretend to be scientists, to put out the message: "This climate thing, it’s nonsense. Man-made CO2 doesn’t trap heat. It may be volcanoes." Bulls--t! "It may be sun spots." Bulls--t! "It’s not getting warmer." Bulls--t!  [It would appear that Algore knows his game is up, and that means that his multi-millions invested in companies that would benefit by Cap and Trade legislation will not pan out.  Not only that, Congress may be investigating him for perjury in front of a Congressional committee.  No wonder he is irate!]
The Washington Post opines : [Liberal opinion writer Richard Cohen ends his latest column by pronouncing]: This president got elected because he was cool. He could be defeated because he is cold.
Western Journalism reports:  Cokie Roberts one of the leading voices of the left wing establishment in America masquerading as a journalist lets the truth slip in this important video. Our big problem is the “US Constitution” in her analysis.

Gulag Bound writes: Documented: plans are underway right now to electronically control our homes.  Learn about this outrageous encroachment of our freedoms, while we can still stop it.  This is not about “conservative” or “liberal” politics.  It is about civil rights vs. totalitarianism.
A critical video to watch, alright.  Do learn from the expert research and analysis of Patrick Wood, editor of The August Forecast & Review.

Be sure to listen to the infuriating truth that the North American Smart Grid is being implemented right now, according to the Bush administration’s semi-covert, supposedly non-governmental agreement with Mexico and Canada, in the “Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America” (SPP).
And this is to become a part of the Global Smart Grid, as Wood explains — right into our tiny electric cars and home appliances.  Are you using your dryer too much, this month?
CBS Detroit reports: Five labor unions representing most state of Michigan employees plan to announce a coordinated bargaining approach as contract talks escalate.
The announcement scheduled for Tuesday afternoon comes as Gov. Rick Snyder’s administration seeks $145 million in overall state employee concessions for the fiscal year that starts in October.
The coalition scheduled to make Tuesday’s announcement includes units of the United Auto Workers, Service Employees International Union, the Michigan Corrections Organization, the Michigan State Employees Association and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees.

Verizon Offers $50,000 Reward After Sabotage On Day Two Of Militant Union Strike

RedState writes: It’s been less than 24 hours since the Communications Workers of America (CWA) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) called 45,000 of their respective members out on strike against Verizon and, already, there are reports of sabotage of Verizon equipment, as well as illegal picketing.

“In addition to inconveniencing our customers, these deliberate disruptions of our network have affected hospitals, paramedics, fire fighters, law enforcement and other first responders. Verizon is working closely with local authorities to investigate these sabotage incidents, and identify and prosecute those responsible to the fullest extent of the law. And we will not hesitate to terminate any employee who may be involved in these acts.
“In addition, there have been circumstances where union picketers are showing contempt for our customers by illegally preventing us from accessing the tools we need to serve them,” said Mason. “We are taking legal action to end this unlawful activity.”
Weasel Zippers reports: Kansas became on Tuesday the second U.S. state to return a large federal grant meant to help it create a prototype health insurance exchange as part of the Obama administration’s healthcare overhaul.
Republican Governor Sam Brownback said the state would give back the $31.5 million it received from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to become an early leader, along with six other states, in establishing health insurance exchanges that other local government could use as a model.
The Washington Times opines: The most shocking thing about President Obama’s political implosion from bright supernova to deadened black hole has been the complete undoing of his ability to speak.
Gone is the soaring rhetoric and promising tone. Absent is that special credibility he once held with voters who saw him as an adult promising to bring some common sense to Washington.
That winning audacity has been replaced by stiff irritability. Hopeful visions have given way to scolding lectures.
It is the choppy cadence of a child struggling to learn how to read. The halted pace is so slow that comprehension is sometimes lost and he has to stop, back up and take another run at it.
With no music or poetry, Mr. Obama is left grasping for the most barbaric of rhetorical tools, hacking away with class warfare, blaming everyone but himself and offering no vision for fixing this mess. Then tacking onto the end a tinny message about troops who have died.
You have global chaos, market terror and brave Americans who died in a far-off land fighting for American freedom. If ever there was a moment for magic and inspiring oratory, it would be now.
These are the moments great men live for and for which great speeches are made. Just imagine what the Barack Obama of 2008 would have done with such a moment.
Newsbusters reveals: Team Obama sees Mitt Romney as the probable GOP nominee, and they won’t wait until the general election to offer attack lines. “Barack Obama’s aides and advisers are preparing to center the president’s reelection campaign on a ferocious personal assault on Mitt Romney’s character and business background.”But the anonymous strategists Politico interviewed don’t seem to remember the Gabrielle Giffords shooting in their usage of metaphor. "Unless things change and Obama can run on accomplishments, he will have to kill Romney,
