CNS News: “The federal debt has increased by $3.8 trillion in the 3.8 years that have passed since House Speaker John Boehner cut his first spending deal with Senate Democrats and President Obama.

That works out to $32,938.38 for every household in the United States—including those taking federal welfare benefits—and $42,783.20 for every full-time year-round private-sector worker in the United States.”

Opinion:  What is becoming obvious is that big government progressives come in all flavors. How foolish to believe that anything would change.

The New American: “A total of six county magistrates have resigned over the past several weeks in North Carolina rather than honor a court order requiring them to perform wedding ceremonies for same-sex couples.

As reported earlier by The New American on October 20 Swain County Magistrate Judge Gilbert Breedlove, in office for nearly 25 years, resigned his position following a federal court ruling that struck down North Carolina’s voter-passed constitutional amendment defining marriage as only between a man and a woman.

Breedlove followed Rockingham County Magistrate John Kallam, Jr., who resigned his position on October 16, saying that being forced to perform same-sex marriage ceremonies “would desecrate a holy institution established by God Himself.”

Opinion: Judge Bill Stevenson said of his resignation. “I felt like to perform same sex unions would be in violation of the Lord’s commands, so I couldn’t do that.”

Since taking office, President Obama has had approximately 280 federal judicial nominees confirmed. This represents roughly one-third of the federal judiciary. Therefore, who controls the Senate will determine the fate of as many as 90 federal judicial appointments that are likely to arise in the final two years of Obama’s presidency.

Elections have consequences.

If the president is able to replace the last 90 seats with  liberal judges it will make little difference who the next president is.

Investors Business Daily Op-Ed: Inflation: “We’ve chastised President Obama many times for failing to live up to promises he made when running for the office. So in fairness, we want to credit him for fulfilling one of them: his pledge to raise energy costs.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the energy price index has been higher than the overall Consumer Price Index since December 2010 — 46 straight months and counting.”

Opinion: The president waged a war on coal and fossil fuels. He wants 80 percent of U.S. electricity to come from renewable energy sources by 2035 and has already invested billions of taxpayer dollars, created more than 700 government programs, and populated his administration with environmental wackos and Wall Street bankers to ensure his success.

What is interesting is that if the recent drop in global oil prices continues, wind and solar energy sources will become even less attractive, making  skyrocketing energy prices even more ridiculous.

A Smidgen Of Baloney

Investors Business Daily Op-Ed: “Scandal: President Obama told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly that the IRS targeting of dissidents had not a “smidgen of corruption.” In light of rafts of evidence it happened, his dismissal of such an abuse of power is disingenuous at best.”
