Should the President put Parties before the people?

A military couple was getting married in Hawaii when they were informed that their wedding plans would have to change because President Obama wanted to play golf on the day of their nuptials!

President Obama has already buckled and decided that our government needs a new embassy in Havana when an NPR reporter asked about building a new embassy in Tehran, Iran. Apparently the President has forgotten the history of our nation; he thinks that an embassy in Tehran may be a good thing!

Newsweek analyzes a new study that finds an interesting development… when police officers use body cameras incidents of police using excessive force decrease dramatically. During a year-long experiment some officers were told to wear HD body cameras on their tour, they would also be required to tell the people they were interacting with that they were being filmed.

The researchers found that it was roughly twice as likely for force to be used in the control condition, without cameras, as in the treatment condition, with cameras, and determined that the effect was statistically significant. They hypothesize, based on previous theoretical research, that the change comes at least in part from the awareness of being filmed.

Obama’s clean power plan, through his EPA, is unconstitutional.
