DICTATOR PLUS AGENTS OUTNUMBER LISTENERS
As leader of the free world President Obama will be used to making speeches to millions of people around the globe.
So he might have felt the occasion was a little beneath him when he stopped off in Reno, Nevada, to deliver an address outside a couple’s garage.
In what could be a disastrous photo opportunity for the President’s campaign, Obama spoke to a few people in the crucial swing state.
The president’s 15 minute address outside the home of Paul and Val Keller drew a tiny audience of neighbors and supporters – though even his hosts said they were not sure if they would vote for him in the coming election.
Police want help finding four men who teamed up to beat a young U.S. Army soldier in a South Tampa street.
It was an awful welcome to Tampa Bay for a young soldier.
Police say the victim of a violent beating caught on camera is 24 years old and has lived in Tampa for less than a month.
He’s a U.S. Army soldier assigned to MacDill Air Force Base and lives not far from the base at Dale Mabry Hwy. and Interbay Blvd.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife service is proposing to loosen regulations prohibiting the killing of bald eagles for the benefit of renewable energy companies.
The Heritage Foundation’s blog “The Foundry” reports on the latest instance of the Obama administration’s war on wildlife:
A draft regulation first filed in April would allow businesses to apply for 30-year permits allowing them to kill bald eagles in the course of other legal activities.
The length of those permits would be a six-fold increase over the five-year window allowed under current law.
The USFWS explains: “We have reviewed applications from proponents of renewable energy projects, such as wind and solar power facilities, for programmatic permits to authorize eagle take that may result from both the construction and ongoing operations of renewable energy projects.
"During our review, it became evident that the 5-year term limit imposed by the 2009 regulations needed to be extended to better correspond to the timeframe of renewable energy projects.”
