Dana Perino blasts Obama’s plan to join UN’s climate ‘name & shame’

http://twitter.com/#!/kesgardner/status/504457573169246208 The Obama administration is working with the United Nations on a climate change agreement and reportedly has no plans to keep Congress in the loop: In preparation for this agreement, to be signed at a United Nations summit meeting in 2015 in Paris, the negotiators are meeting with diplomats from other countries to broker a deal to commit some of the world’s largest economies to enact laws to reduce their carbon pollution. But under the Constitution, a president may enter into a legally binding treaty only if it is approved by a two-thirds majority of the Senate. Part of the agreement would allow the U.N. to publicly “call out” countries they deem threats to the environment, including the United States.

Either way it’s the type of divisive rhetoric we expect from her. Maybe she hasn’t noticed that the vast majority of her party’s senators are white. *** Related Miss.

‘Mic’ editor: Reporters’ rights ‘rise above’ average citizens’

http://twitter.com/#!/derekahunter/status/499730382519283713 Wait a second. Are you saying reporters aren’t special and don’t have special rights? Politics editor Stefan Becket at .Mic seems to think otherwise—or else he did until he said it out loud on Twitter. The tweet was prompted by a couple of reporter who were arrested briefly in Ferguson Missouri for not complying with the police. If Twitter is good for anything, it’s good for documenting when someone in the media or politics slips up and says what they actually believe. http://twitter.com/#!/gopfashionista/status/499734868138668032   “Like it or not.” He deleted that tweet and came back with this. http://twitter.com/#!/gideonstrumpet/status/499734367712055297 http://twitter.com/#!/riteormite/status/499734797758242816 http://twitter.com/#!/redsteeze/status/499735136658010112 http://twitter.com/#!/thestreeter/status/499736147527233536 Indeed. http://twitter.com/#!/apple_butter/status/499736565292466176 #JustABlogger Read more: http://twitchy.com/2014/08/13/mic-editor-reporters-rights-rise-above-average-citizens-tweet-deleted/

http://twitter.com/#!/WestWingReport/status/524952885105528832 As Twitchy has been reporting over the past few days, libs are attempting to dictate a narrative in which they portray the GOP as creating a panic over fears of Ebola solely to win votes in the November midterm elections. But with every new maneuver by the Obama administration to fight Ebola, the alleged GOP fear-mongering is looking more and more like prescience. Here’s the latest, via The Hill: All travelers who arrive in the U.S. from Ebola-stricken countries will be closely watched by public health officials starting Monday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced Wednesday. Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said that anyone arriving from the three countries – Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia – will be actively monitored on a daily basis starting Monday. They will also face new rules about where they can travel within the U.S., and […]

Actor Ken Wahl: Instead of fundraising, Obama should visit corrupt Phoenix VA

http://twitter.com/#!/KenWahl1/status/464494792705970176 President Obama’s on another fundraising spree. Just yesterday, he headlined a Dem fundraiser at the home of Disney Studios chair Alan Horn. But actor and ardent military supporter Ken Wahl believes Obama’s time and energy would be far better spent showing support for people who truly need and deserve it: our veterans. http://twitter.com/#!/KenWahl1/status/464492526326407168 A recent CNN report asserted that at least 40 veterans died waiting for treatment from the Phoenix VA Health Care system. Instead of droning on about “the problems of inequality,” President Obama should be speaking up for the heroes who served our country. http://twitter.com/#!/KenWahl1/status/464515997957750784 Indeed he should.

But this one deserves its own post. An NBC exec said the network aired the opening ceremony of the Sochi Winter Olympics on tape-delay to give the event the “context” and “pageantry it deserves.” In addition to the “context” of calling decades of communism a “pivotal experiment,” Deadspin reports that NBC made this editorial decision for American viewers: http://twitter.com/#!/sunnyright/status/432148461593821184 Was that for “context” or “pageantry”?

Howard tweeted later that “he never commented on international politics and never will.” As for Rihanna, a source told TMZ that “she didn’t even realize it was a tweet until she started hearing from her fans.” According to the U.K. Independent, the source “went on to explain that the singer had been reading up on the Middle Eastern conflict online when she ‘clicked a link.’” Chuck D has a different explanation: slavery. http://twitter.com/#!/MrChuckD/status/490280006937882624 http://twitter.com/#!/OmarRang/status/490280856179597312 http://twitter.com/#!/lemburns/status/490280966238121985 http://twitter.com/#!/PinkCottonMom/status/490281191153868800 http://twitter.com/#!/FQD1911/status/490286411502088192 http://twitter.com/#!/owais00/status/490287488653860864 http://twitter.com/#!/otradar313/status/490281400051204097         Read more: http://twitchy.com/2014/07/18/chuck-d-slaves-rihanna-and-dwight-howard-pimped-into-deleting-freepalestine-tweets/
