Ah, that infamous climate "scientist" from Penn State University, Michael Mann, appears to have a sensitivity problem and his way of dealing with it is ill-advised by Marc Morano who, while appearing on Fox with Megyn Kelly, points out that Mann is more concerned about suing the creators of a parody YouTube video than he is about pleading his case and defending his record.

The result, as Morano and Kelly point out, will unquestionably be more interest in the viral video known as "Hide the Decline". First the Fox interview wit Morano via Hope for America:

Kelly pointed out that the video of Hide the Decline has been pulled as a result of the lawsuit and in some cases it has been. However, I've found this one that still works......for now.


As the popularity of the Arizona Immigration law is becoming known - Governor Jan Brewer's approval numbers in the state are skyrocketing as a result of her signing it - another border state, Texas is poised to vote on a similar law in 2011. State Representative Debbie Riddle (R-HOU) will be introducing an immigration bill that will mirror the Arizona law.

Is it me or does it seem like it's the women who are doing all the heavy lifting lately?

Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Jan Brewer, and now Debbie Riddle?

Via the Houston Chronicle:
AUSTIN, Texas — A Republican Texas lawmaker plans to introduce a tough immigration measure similar to the new law in Arizona, a move state Democrats say would be a mistake.

Rep. Debbie Riddle of Tomball said she will push for the law in the January legislative session, according to Wednesday's editions of the San Antonio Express-News and Houston Chronicle.

"The first priority for any elected official is to make sure that the safety and security of Texans is well-established," said Riddle, who introduced a similar measure in 2009 that didn't get out of committee. "If our federal government did their job, then Arizona wouldn't have to take this action, and neither would Texas."

It would appear that British Primer Minister has been watching too much Mainstream Media coverage of the U.S. tea parties. While on the campaign trail, Brown was confronted by an elderly woman that would fit in quite nicely with the American Tea Party movement. She had legitimate concerns about her government's deficits and debt. She politely but assertively challenged Brown on a wide array of things.

In front of the cameras, Brown was cordial and congenial. Then, he called 65 year-old Gillian Duffy a "bigot", obviously thinking the microphones were turned off.

First up, click HERE to watch the actual interaction between Brown and Duffy.

Now, after watching that, check out Brown's reaction while appearing on a Radio 2 in Great Britain as he listens to the uncovered audio of him calling Duffy a "bigot". Click HERE for video.

Ah, the pitfalls of going to the mat. Anyone could have seen this coming. When Lieberman's letters to the White House were predictably ignored, he upped the ante by issuing subpoenas to the administration and the Department of Justice, asking for the release of documents relative to the Fort Hood shootings.

Joe Lieberman, chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs appears to have inserted himself into a game of "chicken" with the Obama administration. The question is, how long will he continue playing? Based on this report from the Washington Post, it's Lieberman's move.

Via WaPo:
After days of negotiations, the Pentagon and Justice Department informed a Senate committee that they would not comply with congressional subpoenas to share investigative records from the Nov. 5 shootings at Fort Hood, Tex., which killed 13 people. The agencies said that divulging the material could jeopardize their prosecution of Army Maj. Nidal M. Hasan, the accused gunman.
Granted, the reaction from Lieberman's office to this latest news is strongly worded....
Leslie Phillips, a spokeswoman for the Senate committee, called the refusal by the Pentagon and the Justice Department to hand over all the requested material "an affront to Congress's constitutional obligation to conduct independent oversight of the executive branch."
Unless Lieberman is prepared to go to the mat, such language could be nothing more than a parting shot before the committee chair bows out.

The ball is in Lieberman's court and he is either going to let this matter die or continue to push via subpoenas through the courts.
