Chief Justice Roberts Betrays Us AGAIN With Brutal Ruling…UNBELIEVABLE!!!

Published

on

From CT

When Chief Justice John Roberts was first appointed to the Supreme Court during the Bush administration, it was believed that he would be a strong conservative voice on the court who would uphold both the Constitution and the rule of law.

Sadly, he has proven to be a vast disappointment, as he has time and again bailed out President Barack Obama’s horrible policies, laws and regulations, most notably by saving Obamacare.

Now Roberts has again betrayed the conservatives that trusted him and the Constitution that he is supposed to uphold by ruling in favor of an Environmental Protection Agency regulation that his court had already struck down as illegal less than a year ago, according to The Hill.

At issue was the EPA’s Mercury and Air Toxics Standards rule, which had been struck down by a 5-4 decision in 2015. Twenty different states, led by Michigan, had filed a plea with the court to live up to its previous ruling and issue a stay against enforcement of the regulation, which the EPA has proceeded with despite the earlier ruling against it.

“Unless this court stays or enjoins further operation of the Mercury and Air Toxics rule, this court’s recent decision in Michigan v. EPA will be thwarted,” read a brief by the states filed with the court on Feb. 23. “A stay or injunction is appropriate because this court has already held that the finding on which the rule rests is unlawful and beyond EPA’s statutory authority.”

But the EPA filed its own brief declaring a stay or injunction to be unnecessary, as it was nearly finished with its efforts to fix the rule so that it would pass the court’s muster.

“The requested stay would harm the public interest by undermining reliance interests and the public health and environmental benefits associated with the rule,” read the government’s brief. “The application lacks merit and should be denied.”

Roberts sided with the EPA, issuing a unilateral decision the next day to deny the states’ request instead of permitting the entire court to weigh in on the issue, thereby allowing the EPA to proceed with the implementation of a rule that had already been struck down.

Of course the administration and its anti-capitalist, anti-energy environmentalist allies cheered Roberts’ swift decision to side with them and will no doubt redouble their efforts to push through more aspects of their job-killing anti-America agenda in the remaining time they have left before Obama and his ilk are thankfully removed from office.

Sadly, there is no telling how long Roberts will continue to serve as head of the court and betray the American people who helped put him there.

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts rejected a plea Thursday to block a contentious air pollution rule for power plants in a big victory for the Obama administration.

Roberts’s order came despite his court’s 5-4 decision last year ruling that the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) regulation, known as the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards, is illegal.

Michigan led a group of 20 states last month — empowered by the Supreme Court’s recent unprecedented decision to halt the EPA’s carbon dioxide rule for power plants — in asking the court to live up to its ruling last year and block the regulation’s enforcement.

“Unless this court stays or enjoins further operation of the Mercury and Air Toxics rule, this court’s recent decision in Michigan v. EPA will be thwarted,” the states wrote in a Feb. 23 filing with the court.

“A stay or injunction is appropriate because this court has already held that the finding on which the rule rests in unlawful and beyond EPA’s statutory authority.”

The EPA responded that no judicial stay is necessary since it’s working to fix the problem the court identified by next month, and the states would not suffer irreparable harm in that time.

“The requested stay would harm the public interest by undermining reliance interests and the public health and environmental benefits associated with the rule,” the government said. “The application lacks merit and should be denied.”

Roberts acted swiftly, waiting less than a day after the EPA’s response brief to side with the Obama administration. He acted unilaterally, electing to reject the request himself rather than take it to the full court, which may have led to a 4-4 split following Justice Antonin Scalia’s death.

The mercury pollution standards, made final in 2012, are a separate regulation from the more controversial and costly carbon dioxide limits for power plants that are also being litigated in court.

The Supreme Court put an unprecedented halt to the carbon rule, known as the Clean Power Plan, last month by a 5-4 vote, when Roberts chose to let the full court vote on the matter. Thursday’s action by Roberts is completely separate from that case.

EPA spokeswoman Melissa Harrison said on Thursday the agency is “very pleased” with Roberts’s order.

“These practical and achievable standards cut harmful pollution from power plants, saving thousands of lives each year and preventing heart and asthma attacks,” she said, adding that the agency’s calculations show $9 in health benefits for every dollar in compliance costs for the regulation.

Harrison confirmed that the EPA next month plans to finalize a fix to the rule to retroactively apply its cost-benefit analysis in the way the Supreme Court said was necessary.

The court ruled last June that the EPA should have conducted a cost-benefit analysis on the regulation before it even decided to start writing it. The agency did so as part of the regulatory process, but the justices said that was not sufficient.

The Supreme Court did not overturn the rule at the time, and the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said in December that the EPA could keep enforcing it.

Environmental groups were pleased with Roberts’s decision.

“It is time to end this damaging litigation and to protect our children from the poisons in our air and water,” said Vickie Patton, general counsel for the Environmental Defense Fund, which participated in the case to help the EPA, along with other green and health groups and some states.

“The Mercury and Air Toxics Standards are safeguarding millions of American children from poisons such as mercury, arsenic and acid gases,” she said.

Michigan and its allies opposing the rule could still try to seek a full-court review of Roberts’s decision.

Look Where Trump Just Suddenly Showed Up And Shocked Everyone With What He Brought With Him!

Published

on

Although the liberal mainstream American media has been constantly going after our President Donald J. Trump, last night showed each and every one of us what he’s made of.

Our President along with First Lady Melania showed up at a local area restaurant yesterday and what he brought with him was epic. He was sporting an awesome attitude and was looking genuinely happy. In fact, he looked happier than any other time during his presidency, despite all the criticism he’s endured in the first nine months on the job.  Just like all our past great leaders, he just doesn’t let all the crap from the media and the insane left-wing nuts get to him. He just keeps going and delivering what he promised. He continues to Make America Great Again, bit by bit.

Lottery Post Reports: 

 THE PRESIDENT’S ACCOMPLISHMENTS TO DATE

A few days ago, I received an email that threw some light on trump’s accomplishments over this last while, and it was of great interest.   Now we have all heard of the negative things that are attributed to Trump as the media has made sure that they keep the heat on him at every corner. But what about news of the good things he has done for the country? Is there anything in the papers? I have not seen anything.

Yet, there have been some very good things this fellow has done which escape many as these things are not published in favor of the negative junk. Now, you have to remember that Trump is not a politician. He is a CEO. I bet he would have loved to clean house and fire everybody and redo everything the way it should be done, but that in the USA is an impossible task without taking over the country by force. The other politicians would never allow it and would have presented a formidable opposition.

But when a company hires a CEO to turn their company around, a good CEO does do that. He walks into a company and looks at it, and cuts the crap out and fires people and replaces them with competent people that can and will do the work.   Very difficult to do when you are a businessman and faced with politicians that you cannot fire otherwise you do not have any support. What a job to tackle. I do not envy him.

So what has Trump done that has prompted me to write on him?

WHO KNEW?    Not those that get their news from the mainstream media! They only talk about the phony Russian story. Every Lefty in the US is trying to derail the Trump Administration. It’s time that we fight back. Spread the word.

Now we can also add the defeat of Isis to the list, and the fact that our stock market has increased by 5.2 trillion dollars since the election, which has given us the lowest unemployment rates in 16 years.

This is resounding proof that the American Presidency does make a difference. Look at what happened to our great nation when, because of white guilt, we as a nation decided it was a good idea to elect a half African-American “never-was” charlatan who goes by the name of both Barack Hussein Obama and Barry Soetoro. A man who had no known accomplishments whatsoever in politics, or in his professional life. He had never even run a lemonade stand, but people thought it was a good idea to make him the most powerful man in the world.

The Barack Hussein Obama mistake gave us a revival of the racism narrative in America, a disastrous economy for 8 years, an overhaul of our health care system that left many of us not being able to afford our health insurance premiums, and a nation that was being laughed at throughout the world.  So much for “Hope and Change!”

Please share in support of President Trump….

Entire Broncos Team Just Woke To WORST News Of The Season After They Didn’t Listen – Too Late Now

Published

on

They say if you want to know why something is happening, all you have to do is follow the money.  Unfortunately for the NFL, they grossly miscalculated what would be the results of their stance on the National Anthem protest started by Colin Kaepernick and all of those supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.

The plan was obviously to bring awareness to an issue that they considered to be problematic, however, all they seem to have drawn awareness to is the rampant nature of the entitled racist mindset held by many players that most of the NFL fans wanted to overlook. In the case of the Denver Broncos, their plight is worse than most. Not only do they have to deal with the league itself tanking as the ratings and ticket sales go down the drain, their local sponsors are pulling away from them in droves.

Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall was at one time a college teammate of Kaepernick and an early convert to the cause. This caused Marshall to lose some of his personal endorsements, but even bigger than that is the mass exodus from the team itself. Westword reports that local radio stations are starting to lose advertisers for the slots taken up during the broadcasts of the Broncos games.

“At least two advertisers have asked that their commercials no longer run during KOA‘s radio broadcasts of Denver Broncos games because they’re upset by national anthem-related demonstrations prior to the kickoff of NFL games.

‘Yeah, there’s been a couple’ that have pulled out, confirms Tim Hager, market manager for iHeartMedia’s Denver stations, including KOA, ‘and that’s the rationale.'”

No matter what the entitled millionaires think, the small business in the heartland just aren’t going to want to be associated with a group that is against everything we stand for.

“Controversy bubbled up again last month when teams throughout the league took part in various protests before and during the playing of the anthem — and this time around, there was fallout for Von Miller, the Broncos’ biggest star. Miller’s decision to take a knee, along with dozens of teammates, was followed by reports that Phil Long Dealerships had dropped him as an endorser. Miller’s reps subsequently insisted that his deal with the company had lapsed months earlier and negotiations were ongoing — but a statement from the firm strongly suggested that he shouldn’t hold his breath waiting for a new pact to be signed. It read in part: ‘When we bring in celebrities to represent us, we run the risk of being misinterpreted.'”

Tim Hager with former Broncos and current Orange and Blue Radio personalities Ray Crockett and Steve Atwater at a Broncos game last month.

Basically what Phil Long Dealerships is saying is that when they  entrust their name to a celebrity, their reputations are entwined at that time. In other words, if that celeb acts badly, it reflects badly on the business that they’re endorsing. We’ve seen this in the past with other businesses who got mud on their face because someone that they entrusted with their brand acted badly.

“Hager characterizes [their reasons for pulling their ads] as general displeasure with the NFL over the controversy.

In response, he says, ‘we immediately found ways for the advertisers to get their message out and support what they wanted to support. And we’ve also been airing the national anthem in our game broadcasts, which we didn’t do before this year. So we’ve found ways to strengthen what we’re doing.'”

Americans are still working on wearing down the NFL on a national level, but at least for now the local stations are beginning to see just how importation patriotism is to the American people. It was one thing when an individual player wasn’t willing to respect the flag, but with signs of disrespect across virtually every team in the league, it’s a problem too large to ignore.

“Television ratings for NFL contests are reportedly down by 7.5 percent compared to this time last year, and many pundits think the protests are one of the main reasons. However, Hager says KOA’s broadcasts, starring new booth-mates Dave Logan and Rick Lewis, haven’t suffered the same fate.

 [Hager] acknowledges that ‘there was a groundswell immediately after [the September protest] happened, but that’s calmed down. Right now, I’m not seeing anything that has me overly concerned.’

Good thing, because iHeartMedia recently launched Orange and Blue Radio, a station at 760 AM that boasts of being all Broncos, all the time. And more kneeling by Denver players could be very bad for business.”

There’s going to come a time very soon when the Broncos and all the other teams who insist on being disrespectful will have to choose between their principles and staying in business. This isn’t an issue that Americans are ready to let go, probably because it’s chipping away at the very foundation of our country’s ability to stay free. The sooner this protest is put to rest, the more likely we will be able to show the rest of the world that those of us with integrity are still indivisible.

Hillary Clinton Just Made Unbelievable Announcement Out Of The Blue That NOBODY Saw Coming

Do you believe her?

Published

on

Hillary Clinton was on a promotional tour trying to convince people to buy her book, “What Happened” and she told BBC Radio 4’s ‘Woman’s Hour’ something absolutely shocking. This is something that came out of the blue and nobody saw it coming. Hillary Clinton’s unbelievable announcement is sad news to her fans and great news for anyone who opposes her. Hillary Clinton announced that she will not run for President in 2020. If this made you excited, then we’re on the same page and we should be friends.

Via RT:

In an announcement that will come as a blow to Hillary fans, the former first lady, secretary of state and presidential candidate has said she will not run again, though she will continue to speak out about Donald Trump.
Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s ‘Woman’s Hour’ on Tuesday, while on a promotional tour to sell her new book ‘What happened’, Clinton revealed that by not running, she’s better placed to “magnify” her voice.

“No, I’m not going to run again,” Clinton said. “I think I’m in a position where my voice will actually be magnified because I am not running, and there’s a very good basis, as we watch Trump’s support shrink, that people will say, ‘Well, what she said was right and now where do we go from here?’”

Her announcement will come as a disappointment to Trump who, before the interview aired, tweeted that he hoped the two would face off once again.

Clinton thinks she’s in a better place to use her voice to speak out against President Donald Trump if she does not run against him in 2020 (if he runs). She believes she can fight the powers that be by not competing for the biggest seat in the White House and the chance to be the first woman President of the United States of America.

Of course, she says that now but everyone knows she can change her mind for 2020’s election. She’s probably just saying this now to grab some headlines and talk about her book. I’m 99.9% certain this is simply a page out of Trump’s book to get free press – something he’s a king of.

If Hillary Clinton doesn’t run for President in 2020, then perhaps the Democrats will have learned from the mistakes in 2016 that granted them with some of the worst possible Presidential options in history.

If Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are the only two people out of the entire Democratic party who want to be President, then that’s a very easy victory for Republicans. Bernie Sanders, the guy who allegedly owns three homes and hasn’t worked a day in his life and wants everything to be free in a socialist America would be laughed out of the election.

Hillary Clinton would lose again because people will enjoy living in America even more if the new tax reform is passed and everyone’s saving money and enjoying life. Not to mention people don’t actually really like her unless they are hardcore liberals who are too close minded to appreciate anything a Republican has to offer.

If Hillary is out of the race for good, then the Democrats might present something more respectable. They’ll have learned from their mistakes (probably not) and possibly spark some real competition for Trump or whomever runs in 2020 if Trump is uninterested.

What’s bad about Hillary’s announcement that she won’t run in 2020? If she’s not running against Donald Trump, then Trump might have to put out some effort.

If she ran, then it would be an easy victory for Trump because his voters aren’t going to magically vote for Hillary Clinton. There’s literally no chance of that happening unless there’s some more fake Russian collusion again. Maybe little Russian men in tin hats sneak into the voter booths and make us vote for Hillary. You know, because that’s what everyone against Trump thinks happened in 2016.

Though she will not contest the presidency. Clinton told the show that she will remain active in politics.

“I’m trying to make the case about what we need to do so that what happened in my election doesn’t happen again,” she said. “But I’ll also be raising money and support for candidates and causes I believe in. And I’ll be supporting the Democratic Party in the elections this year, next year and 2020.”

How will she support the Democrat party? Selling her book supports herself and doesn’t do much for her political party.

Here’s what’s going to happen in 2020 – Hillary will run for President if she’s not coughing up a storm. She will go back and forth for the next several years, telling people she is or isn’t running so she can promote her book or other nonsense. This will all be part of her marketing scheme to cash in on whatever she’s selling, then leading up to her announcement to run for POTUS again.

And, she will lose again.
