In most court decisions, judge would recuse themselves if their decision would directly affect their financial well being.
The judge deciding the case is an elected Republican.
As it is, the law will make it easier for him to get elected.
the PA Supreme Court decision to return the case to Commonwealth Court was bipartisan.....looks like you have a Democrat to lynch....

Romney’s Debate Predicament

The trouble for Romney, as for any trailing candidate, is that he will have to put pressure on his opponent and force Obama into making errors, but in doing so the already widely-disliked Romney runs the risk of irritating and alienating even more people. Because his unfavorability in important states is near or at 50%, he has no room for any more unforced errors, but given Romney’s recent history it is more than likely that Romney will make just such an error at some point during the three debates. His 47% comments have put him on the defensive, which makes it more difficult for him to go on the attack without appearing desperate. At the same time, because of his exceptionally high unfavorability Romney will also need to be repairing his public image. He will be attempting to do this while he is trying to sow doubts in the audience’s mind about Obama, and that would be a complicated feat even for a very capable politician. Based on the last few months, we can conclude that Romney is not that.

Geoengineering: Dangerous Proposal Or Lethal Reality?

It is important to understand how forest fires and drought apply to geoengineering. In addition to robbing the environment of moisture, an atmosphere saturated with geoengineering particulates also increases atmospheric conductivity. With the forests at record low moistures levels due to the drought this year, the effects of the SAG and SRM have proved a devastating combination as dry-lighting strikes have become widespread, thus fueling spontaneous wildfires.

Clearly, with geoengineering, the weather on the earth can be modified by the timing and quantity of particulates being sprayed into the environment. This begs the question of the true intent of geoengineering.

Is it a potential way to gain power via control of the weather rather than a proposed solution to prevent global warming? It appears as though the primary motivation for pursuing geoengineering by the U.S. military may be the strategic advantage of weather modification during times of war.

Controlling the weather creates a powerful force multiplier for a nation’s military during a conflict. For example, if one nation were able to ground an entire country’s air force because of severe weather, or create a drought so bad that a nation is weakened internally and rebellion against its leaders takes place, a nation could win a war before firing the first shot.

The U.S. military historically has been vocal about the desire to be able to modify the weather going back to the 1940’s, when they partnered with General Electric, which was researching weather modification at that time...

Romney Remains the Candidate of Nostrums

National Journal reports that the Romney campaign has learned nothing from the last month:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney plans to deliver a major speech next week with the aim of offering a “stark contrast” between his foreign-policy vision and that of the Obama administration, which has recently come under criticism for its handling of an attack in Libya that resulted in the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others.

This is a foolish move for a campaign that is already becoming legendary for making foolish moves. Romney’s WSJ op-ed this morning was almost unanimously criticized across the political spectrum for being platitudinous and bereft of any policy ideas. Even Jennifer Rubin, Romney’s most reliable booster, didn’t try to spin how poor of an effort it was:

If Romney wrote the Journal piece himself, someone should have the nerve to sit him down and say it is unhelpful and weak. If someone else wrote it, he should be benched.

This is hardly the first time that the Romney campaign has produced an unsuccessful op-ed on foreign policy, but this one is a more remarkable failure because it comes so late in the contest. It reflects how much Romney still relies on slogans rather than policy arguments. That draws attention to the inconvenient fact that Romney’s lack of experience and preparation in this area really does hamper his ability to talk about some of the more important issues in detail. As Scoblete wrote in response to this morning’s op-ed:

This is not a ‘coherent strategy’ but a series of nostrums. They’re fine nostrums, as far it goes, but it doesn’t begin to address the actual issues the U.S. faces in the Middle East.

What is so damning about this is that the same could be said of many of Romney’s statements on foreign policy. There is no evidence of improvement or learning going on, and no sign that Romney gives these issues the attention they deserve. I’m not talking about how much time Romney chooses to spend talking about foreign policy on the campaign trail. What I mean is that Romney hasn’t familiarized himself with these issues beyond the most superficial level. He continues to rely on little more than nostrums even after six years of running for President. Romney’s previous speeches on foreign policy have been forgettable and then quickly forgotten, so it’s difficult to see what Romney could say in a new speech that isn’t simply a rehearsal of these same nostrums.

Wow, Fox News sinks to new lows -
Headline -
Obama administration held dozens of meetings on food stamps with Mexican officials
Story
The Obama administration met with Mexican officials and held other events to discuss enrollment in food stamps and similar programs roughly 30 times since President Obama took office, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack revealed in a recent letter to Congress.
They were among 151 documented meetings and events held since 2004, when the United States and Mexico first started partnering on food-stamp awareness. That partnership, though, has raised alarm with Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who is concerned the collaboration amounts to a vehicle for the USDA to pressure people onto the food-stamp rolls -- in this case, noncitizen immigrants from Mexico.
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/10/01/vi...
Yes Obama was sworn in 2004
However, his letter indicates the number of legal, noncitizens participating in the program -- now called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program -- has increased from 425,000 to 1.23 million between 2001 and 2010. And a Republican Budget Committee staffer told The Daily Caller, which first reported the Vilsack letter, the estimated number of legal, noncitizens in the food stamp program is now roughly 1.63 million — more than double the number who participated in 2008.
Oh wait he was sworn in 2001 or was it 2008
There have been an estimated 151 activities or meetings between U.S. and Mexican officials related to the initiative since it began in 2004 under the administration on then-President George W. Bush.
Among them were roughly 91 meetings between U.S. and Mexico embassy and consulate staff; 29 health fair events; and 31 roundtable discussions, conferences and forums in 20 cities.
Twenty percent of the meetings and activities occurred since 2008(Obama sworn in January 2009), according to Vilsack’s letter.
Correct headline should be -
Bush administration held over 100 meetings on food stamps with Mexican officials
So it's a very old story, given a new headline and will be pumped out by Fox News.
Man, they are scum.
Yup. That's probably how the Washington Post/New York Times/LA Times would probably headline it.
The real headline should be:
"the estimated number of legal, noncitizens in the food stamp program is now roughly 1.63 million — more than double the number who participated in 2008."

Now, doesn't a legal non-citizen have to sign an agreement with the government to be legally here that they will not ask for nor accept subsidence from the US government, and that becomes one of the conditions for allowing them to be here legally?

If so, didn't they violate their agreement when they applied for and accepted food stamps, and they are no longer in the United States legally?

That was the condition in 2009, I know for sure. Is that one of the changes Obama and the Democrats brought with them? Instead of attracting immigrants that strive to be self-reliant and a functioning member of the economy, Obama and the Democrats are attracting the welfare slugs.

given that the administration foreign policy promotes radical Islam, what intelligence officer who wants to keep his job would dare suggest the possibility of an attack by radical Islamists....

Will the Liberal Media cover this story?
U.S. President Barack Obama issued a new executive order last week to fight human trafficking, touting his administration's handling of the issue.

"When a little boy is kidnapped, turned into a child soldier, forced to kill or be killed -- that's slavery," Obama said in a speech at the Clinton Global Initiative. "It is barbaric, and it is evil, and it has no place in a civilized world. Now, as a nation, we've long rejected such cruelty."

But for the third year in a row, Obama has waived almost all U.S. sanctions that would punish certain countries that use child soldiers, upsetting many in the human rights community!!
