You will have to pause when you get ill, or BP gets high. They made me so very angry, as evidenced by our twitter!
Some enviro whacko leftist group citing ‘Climate Change’, is saying nay to red meat! Pffft. Miriam Nelson, a professor at Tufts University and one of the committee’s members. Well, (clearing throat) Miriam got a bit of ‘egg’ on her face. Tufts University professor Miriam Nelson, on learning that a federal panel would recommend abandoning its caution about cholesterol-laden foods, spoke out to WaPo Feb. 10.
The meat industry is sharpening its knives over a small federal committee that issued sweeping nutrition advice that essentially told Americans to drop the burger and grab a handful of kale.
Kinda, sorta reminds me of Oprah in ’96 after being sued by cattlemen:
So read the following with healthy skepticism.
Members of Congress had sought in December to keep the group from even discussing the issue.My alderman being key to speaking out on it
According to WaPo:
The panel’s findings, issued Thursday in the form of a 571-page report, recommended that Americans be kinder to the environment by eating more foods derived from plants and fewer foods that come from animals. Red meat is deemed particularly harmful because of, among other things, the amount of land and feed required in its production.
Robert captioned this on Twitter a short ime ago
Beef “red meat” it’s what’s for lunch.
The advisory panel’s report prompted immediate criticism from Congress — as well as a warning from Rep. Robert B. Aderholt (R-Ala.), chairman of the Appropriations subcommittee that oversees the budget for the Agriculture Department.
“Chairman Aderholt is skeptical of the panel’s departure from utilizing sound science as the criteria for the guidelines,” according to Brian Rell, a spokesman. “Politically motivated issues such as taxes on certain foods and environmental sustainability are outside their purview.”
He warned that the panel committee would “keep this in mind” as it considers funding the agencies this spring.
Meat industry lobbyists also attacked the recommendation, asserting that the panel was stacked with health experts who know too little about environmental science.
“The Committee’s foray into the murky waters of sustainability is well beyond its scope and expertise. It’s akin to having a dermatologist provide recommendations about cardiac care,” Barry Carpenter, the chief executive of the North American Meat Institute, said in a statement.
He added that the recommendations “appear to be based on personal opinions or social agendas.”
Animals generate a lot of methane, and the production of meat products requires large amounts of feed, fertilizer and fuel, all of which put stress on the environment.
So it is IMHO the only generating a lot of ‘gas’ is this panel and thank you to my Congressman protecting ‘MY” right to be a MEATatarian carnivore ~ JP
While obama makes a fool of himself, again, at his TTea with Terrorists Summit…
Obama Avoids Islam Focus In ‘Extremism’ Summit, Teams With Mosque With Past Terror Ties
Some critics said the administration is partnering in its three-city pilot program with a group called the Islamic Society of Boston and its political arm, the Muslim American Society, which have ties to people convicted of terrorist activities.
Charles Jacobs, president of the Boston-based Americans for Peace and Tolerance, said the Islamic Society of Boston has connections to at least a dozen extremists who have either been killed, imprisoned, deported or sought as fugitives on terrorism-related charges, including the Tsarnaev brothers accused of the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013. The administration also has started pilot outreach programs to discourage terrorism recruitment in Los Angeles and Minneapolis.
“Most everybody [connected to the Boston mosque] has been and is moderate,” Mr. Jacobs said in an interview. “The problem is the leadership. The leadership of the Islamic Society of Boston is replete with people in the past and now who have connections to terror.”
Not only obama talks about a ‘Islamist Extremist Job Fair….
As NRO puts it Lucy and Ethel Take Foggy Bottom
Jen Psaki and Marie Harf, currently in the midst of an interminable Lucy-and-Ethel routine as Foggy Bottom’s spokesperson and deputy spokesperson, respectively. In an administration that has always given the distinct impression of being directed by second-year poli-sci majors from the University of Wisconsin–Madison, Psaki and Harf are the only two under the impression that Legally Blonde was a documentary — one that they are apparently trying to re-create, with little success, at Foggy Bottom.
Start with Harf, who apparently fell back on government work after losing out on Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update” anchor job.
Talking to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews this week, she proclaimed:
… that since “we cannot win this war by killing [Islamic State fighters] . . . we need in the medium- to longer-term to go after the root causes that lead people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs, whether . . .”
Matthews interrupted before she could offer another possible motive, but we can assume it was not going to be “whether . . . they are Islamic fanatics who enjoy murdering in the name of the world’s second-largest religion.”
Harf is only half of Foggy Bottom’s PR problem. She is joined by Jen Psaki, whose response to Vladimir Putin’s aggression toward Ukraine was to tweet out a picture of herself holding a poster that read “#UnitedForUkraine,” flashing a thumbs-up, and smiling like this was actually a good idea. If only Churchill had thought of it!
“The president doesn’t give himself enough credit for what he’s done around the world,” said Psaki in a press briefing last May. Reporters in the room laughed out loud.

We posted this yesterday: Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) questioned FBI Director Mueller about his knowledge of the radical Boston mosque that the Tsarnaevs attended. In the Judiciary Committee hearing Mueller reveled that he was “unaware” this mosque was founded by a radical Islamist!
And here we have Rep. Jordan questioning Mueller on which agent he assigned to it! Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) didn’t hide his surprise during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday in which FBI Director Robert Mueller told the lawmaker he wasn’t aware of the details surrounding the FBI’s probe of the IRS.
In a heated exchange, Jordan blasted Mueller for not being able to give names of investigators heading the investigation:

In a heated exchange, Jordan blasted Mueller for not being able to give names of investigators heading the investigation.
“This is the most important case in the country for the past six weeks and you don’t know who the most important person is, leading the case?” Jordan asked.
Judge Napolitano on Mueller: ‘With His Logic, They Can Cut as Many Holes in the Constitution as They Want’
“Not off the top of my head,” Mueller replied.
But Jordan didn’t stop there, and instead continued to press Mueller in a series of questions on the topic:
“Is it appropriate for the one doing the audit to give the information to the people he’s investigating and not give that information to the oversight committee? Is that how an investigation is supposed to work?” Jordan fired. “I can’t comment on what is appropriate,” Mueller replied.
“You’ve had a month to investigate, and you can’t even tell me who the lead investigator is? This is what happened. You can’t even tell me what happened?”
Up Next How Rep. Gowdy tells Mueller if it wasn’t safe enough for the FBI to go to Benghazi WHY then was it ok for our Ambassador?!
Being used AGAINST US now:
McCarthyism, coined in 1950 in reference to McCarthy’s practices, was soon applied to similar anti-communist activities. Today the term is used more generally in reference to demagogic, reckless, and unsubstantiated accusations, as well as public attacks on the character or patriotism of political opponents
But this admin and it’s flunkies decry Joe! Sure until it is them following his tenets!!!

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said today that he expects a vote to be taken on gun-control legislation this Thursday, should the Senate invoke cloture tonight. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office confirmed that this to take place starting at 5:45 PM EST.
Reid said today that if Republicans succeed in blocking the Senate’s gun-control bill he will ensure a vote is taken on each of the measures individually.
Listen if you can stomach it…
Senators promising Filibuster:
* Rand Paul of course
* Senator Lee
* Senator Cruz
* Rubio, Inhoffe
* Senator Moran
* Senator Burr
* Senator Johnson
* Senator Enzi
* Senator Risch
* Senator Coats
* Senator Roberts
At least thirteen Senators have formally committed to filibuster the motion to proceed on any gun-control legislation that reaches the Senate.
Harriet didn’t have the 60 votes needed is what truly happened! ~ JP
Now HERE is the most important part friends…
* Reid is preparing to break through Senator Rand Paul’s filibuster as early as Wednesday afternoon, convinced pro-gun Republicans will run for the hills at the first sign of a fight.
* WE need to pressure 28 other Senators to stave off Senate Majority Leader Reid’s scheme. Other Senators are cowering in the shadows and riding the fence. But there’s a handful who are conspiring to hand President Obama everything he wants.
* McNoodle is crystal clear to anyone listening, saying “I don’t understand” why Senator Paul was filibustering the motion to proceed to debate. McCain’s underlying message was as hard to miss as it was outrageous . . .
“Senate Republicans should trust President Obama and Harry Reid.”
* Reid laid his strategy bare in a radio interview on Nevada Public Radio, saying:
“We’re going to do something on background checks [NATIONAL GUN REGISTRATION].”
“We’re going to take a look at the size of clips or magazines.”
“And when it’s all over, we’re going to have votes on [the Feinstein Gun Ban].”
* Weak-kneed GOP Senators: First it was Tom Coburn (R-OK). Then Chuck Grassley (IA). Now Pat Toomey (R-PA) is in “talks” with Obama’s anti-gun Senate ringleader Joe Manchin (D-WV).
WE have to turn up the heat IMMEDIATELY.
You see, this may be our last best chance to defeat the bill.
Dear Fellow Patriot,
Barack Obama’s point man in the U.S. Senate — Harry Reid — launches the gun-grabbers’ war on your gun rights next week on the floor of the U.S. Senate.
Thats why I’m asking you to fill out your special Emergency Fax Petition INSISTING your U.S. Senators oppose the motion to proceed on S. 649 — Harry Reid’s gun control bill — and SUPPORT the Paul, Cruz and Lee filibuster.
Please submit your FREE Emergency Fax Petition authorization below RIGHT NOW!
Whereas: Barack Obama is doing everything he can to ram gun control down the throats of the American people; and
Whereas: By definition, criminals don’t obey laws and new gun control laws make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves and their families; and
Whereas: The Second Amendment clearly states “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”; and
Whereas: Second Amendment supporters like myself strongly oppose – and will be paying close attention to any Senator and Congressman who votes for – new unconstitutional gun control schemes; and
Therefore: As your constituent, I INSIST you OPPOSE the motion to proceed on S. 649 and SUPPORT the Paul, Cruz and Lee filibuster.

PLEASE get this out to all you know! TIME is very short…~ JP
As many of our followers on Twitter and Facebook know I have been posting ‘Obama’s Chicago’ city murders and shootings for a very long time. It is time to highlight it because of the major hypocrisy of liberals. It’s almost as if they incite these shooters to commit mass murders and massacres JUST to get their gun ban agenda through congress. There I said it. Plain English.
I mean come on, these shooters who do not deserve naming, have many common threads. Their ages, medicated, off the radar and then conflicting reports of their crimes. Sorry, but I will always keep ‘engineered soldiers’ at the forefront of my thinking.
It’s like this administrations cameo joke ala Steven Spielberg. The connections with Batman and Aurora. Sandy Hook etc. Something to think about… ~ JP
Any night can explode into gunfire in the Austin neighborhood on Chicago’s West Side.
~ Also the South Side neighborhood of Englewood is constantly hit. Then another area rife with shootings is Auburn-Gresham, which is JUST one of the especially hard hit areas. These posted are just some in a sea of weapons the end up in Chicago’s South Side and West Side, more often then not with the serial numbers filed off.
So we all have a modicum of intelligence that tells us 99% of the time they use unregistered or stolen weapons, probably from Chicago’s ‘buyback program’. And many of these shootings are gang related.
According to FOX, last year, the city hit 506 homicides, and this year, killings again are stacking up at a rate faster than one a day. But the homicides do not tell the true number of ‘shootings’.
Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel are in sync in their push for new gun laws and are getting support from state lawmakers in Springfield. The Public Health Committee of the state Senate rapidly approved bills that would ban the sale of semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines during the lame-duck session.
~ So do not tell me that there is not an engineered program to strip 2nd amendment rights!
The legislation is moving quickly, riding a wave of emotion triggered by the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. The timing is in keeping with the stated philosophy of Emanuel that we should use times of crisis to mobilize people and demand change.
“As somebody who stood by President Clinton’s side to make sure we had a ban on assault weapons, I do not want to see more weapons on the street,” Emanuel said.
~ And we can see what good Bubba’s regulations did. In Chicago this has been going on since the early 70s. Our illustrous, idiotic mayor at the time, Mayoress Jane Byrne signed off on Chicago’s handgun ban. A Chicago Tribune article from March 20,1982 described the passage of the handgun ban passage:
As Friday’s council session began, [Mayor] Byrne feared the vote was too close to call. There was extensive backroom debate to determine if the matter should be brought up. But, Byrne allies, primarily Alderman Fred Roti (1st), Edward Burke (14th) and Wilson Frost (34th), moved through the council chambers, persuading wavering aldermen to back the mayor’s proposals.
Still, some of Byrne’s staunchest allies, including Alderman Robert Shaw (9th) and Richard Mell (33rd), deserted ranks and voted against the ordinance. Streets and Sanitation Commissioner John Donovan made a last-minute deal with at least three aldermen who threatened to walk out of the meeting to avoid voting for the proposal. Donovan promised to improve city services in their wards.
Source- American Thinker Chicago’s Handgun Ban and RICO
So we see the lot of good it did!
The most alarming, this McCarthy jackwipe is pushing for a law that puts the burden back on the gun owner to report if a weapon is lost, stolen or sold. Emanuel is pushing for a database of gun offenders, very similar to those established for sex offenders. I guess so some lousy newspaper like the Tribune can post the map ala NY Journal.
Read what Gun rights advocates have to say.
I close with the report JUST in today from the Tribune:
At least nine people were shot across the city between Friday and Saturday mornings, including three incidents where two people were wounded by gunfire.
As you can read these were in several various neighborhoods. Seemingly gang related. Why not ‘ban’ gangs?! It’s only been a problem in my hometown for, well, forever!
