Our King has spoken...and who needs Congress...
'WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is working to forge a sweeping international climate change agreement to compel nations to cut their planet-warming fossil fuel emissions, but without ratification from Congress.'

You're right about that, who needs congress. Those do-nothing obstructionist Republicans should just stay out of the way while Obama does their job.

According to files compiled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the founder of the world’s largest Christian television network financed his endeavor with the assistance of numerous international criminal organizations.
Documents obtained by MuckRock show that the FBI was investigating Trinity Broadcasting Network and its founder, Paul Crouch, for being in communication with the infamous Bronx mafia figure, Vincent Gigante, with regards to a “narcotics transfer of funds,” which is how the FBI classifies money-laundering.
In another document, Crouch is listed alongside Reverend Earl Paulk and Oral Roberts as “anti-Semitic white supremacists [who] were supposedly receiving funds from the [Palestinian Liberation Organization] to ‘run guns’” via an “Islamic Education Center” in Baltimore, Maryland. Both of these investigations were tagged as relating to “financial flow” involving narcotics.
Crouch and the Tustin, California-based Trinity Broadcasting Network he founded have come under fire in the past for “the prosperity gospel” that is preached on the network, which promises immediate material rewards to viewers who donate generously.

Hmm, hadn't heard about that but TBN has been plagued by scandals both rumored and real.

TBN owns Orlando's Holy Land Experience, a Christ centered theme park that is not as schmaltzy as it could have been if Crouch's wife had been in on the development.

Uh hum. What that means zombie is:
1 - instead of addressing the corruption and potentially criminal acts, you simply attack the source
2 - the liberal media will not report on issues when the corruption is committed by fellow liberals
3 - liberals condone corruption
You can read the signed court document on the Judicial Watch website, you corrupt idiot.
LOL. You DO realize that Judicial Watch is a conservative group that quotes FOX News as their source don't you? IF you have a link to the court document and Thomas Kane's declaration, provide it.

I wish I had a dollar for everytime you have attacked a liberal source. Fact is, if you only have ONE source reporting something, it's because that source doesn't have all the facts and is distorting the truth. THAT is a Fox stategy. Anyone who has visited the Judicial Watch website knows that they quote FOX NEWS as their source of information. It's comical.

1. Joe gets up at zero dark thirty and hits the road to work 12-14 hours shifts so people like you receive benefits you have never worked for. Joe subsidies your laziness with his hard work. Joe also served his country overseas and is a member of a local church which believes in community charity, he volunteers as a firefighters in his rural community to keep others safe without pay. Joe often helps disadvantaged youth whose liberal irresponsible parents disregard these children as surrogate wards of the state and the local school system.
2. Joe's medical benefits for him and his family cost him over 2200.00 a month because Joe pays for his premiums out of his own pocket so people like you get free medical care and benefits that Joe and his family will never use or benefit from in any way.
3. Joe has always worked either for an employer or as self-employed he has never once drawn a unemployment check and has no plans to do so in the future.
4. I don't use the subway but I do carpool with a group to save on fuel and wear and tear on vehicles we have one young man who is starting out in life and his car isn't very reliable no one says a word about his turn to drive because he always pays his way.
5. No Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac for me the only mortgages I've ever had was directly between the bank and me I never even used the VA benefits on FHA loans.
Joe is a conservative who was taught as a young man than your personal actions and choices are what builds character and your future. Joe is responsible, hard working American, married raised 2 kids who are both graduates of college. Joe is the silent majority and Joe has had enough of the
blatant takeover of this country by radical liberalism.
Welcome to the thread Joe. You are one of the respectable people here.

I see you met one of the nasty old foaming at the mouth rabid dishonest commies who lives here named Grey Ghost.

He will simply hurl insults your way and obfuscate like a typical radical juvenile leftwinger.

The only comical part is watching fools like you keep denying it -- like you keep denying Obama lied about keeping our doctors and insurance plans.

FACT: The Obama administration had been lying to the American people about Lois Lerner’s missing emails. They were never lost.

Aren't you the least bit offended that your handlers think you're that naive, that ignorant, that stupid? Jesus...talk about lemmings.

Florida Democrats nominated Charlie Crist for governor on Tuesday, an unsurprising but nonetheless remarkable victory for the former Republican.
The 58-year-old’s easy win over former state Sen. Nan Rich in Tuesday’s primary caps a stunning turnaround. Only four years ago Crist was a governor who had run for office as a rock-ribbed conservative. In the 1990s, he’d embraced the nickname “Chain-Gang Charlie” as a tough-on-crime state senator.
so, what makes Crist a DemoKKKrat???....

The definition applicable to the discussion is tar. Tar is sticky. It also happens to be black in color. You don't want to get stuck to anyone or anything you don't wish to be associated with like tar...or Tar-Baby...who was clever and outsmarted Br'er Rabbit.
Tar-Baby was the name of our family dog. We thought it was a cute name because the dog had black fur. Never crossed our mind it had a racial connotation. We loved our dog.
If a black republican were to win the presidency, you can be sure no one would get upset on your side of the fence if a liberal referred to him as Tar-Baby. Or much worse. And conservatives would just let it roll off our backs. We're rise above such petty nonsense.
Let it go. Like the song.
Explanation of the novel's title ("Tar Baby") from the Author (Toni Morrison):

Tar Baby is also a name [...] that white people call black children, black girls, as I recall.
At one time, a tar pit was a holy place, at least an important place, because tar was used to build things.
It held together things like Moses' little boat and the pyramids.
For me, the tar baby came to mean the black woman who can hold things together.

- from an interview with Toni Morrison by Karin L. Badt (1995)
