President Obama will support the future of transportation by taxing big oil

Here’s a clear indication that exiting President Barack Obama no longer cares what anyone thinks. He’s just introduced a budget that would tax oil companies $10 per barrel of oil in order to fund the future of transportation, according to a new release from the White House. Obama’s plan to produce a new cleaner transit system includes guidelines for how to trim carbon emissions, build out new public transit systems and introduce the latest and greatest in car technology onto U.S. roadways. But it’s got a hefty price tag.

¿Acaso piensan que todas esas miradas,palabras “It’s mine! ¬¬” “My Man…” “te amo”,apodos como “cariño” “mi willy/mi vegetta” “mi niño” “chiqui”,agarres de cintura,sonrojos,sonrisas nerviosas/tímidas,horas y horas de hablarse,parecido de nombres hacia otras cosas y muchas cosas más,son falsas? ¿Acaso creen que por algo que diga Mami Luzu,Wigetta no es real? Años y años de amistad,de amor y cariño y de cosas que hacen sospechar de que sea una simple amistad,¿Se irán por unas simples palabras? No lo creo. Wigetta es real y lo se yo,lo sabes tú,lo sabe el fandom,lo sabe la gente,lo sabe obama,lo sabe el mundo entero ahre

Aparte si no es real,¿Por qué ponen de excusa el libro y no responden sinceramente? Ya que tal vez si tienen algo es difícil pero,si les preguntan “¿Te molesta que crean que Wigetta es real?” o “¿Wigetta es real?” Porque tan solo no responden con un “Si” o un “No”,también esta aquella posibilidad de que si desmienten Wigetta pueda pasar algo “malo” o tal vez ellos piensan eso. O si lo confirman ya no tendría sentido y lo dejan al misterio…

Como dijo Cheeto.

Wigetta es como un cubo de rubik…Tienes que ir resolviéndolo. Veh tu quiere poner esta pieza,esta pieza la quieres poner aquí,por que tu quieres que Wigetta se complete.

Muchas gracias si has llegado ha leer todo os quiero <3 ~

The right crying wolf about Obama being a socialist for the last eight years has totally backfired, because now they’re like, “Bernie’s a socialist!” and he’s like, “Yep, I’m a socialist,” and everyone who they expected to get upset because they don’t know the definition of socialism is like, “Who cares? You said Obama was socialist and everything is fine. Must not be that bad.”

Obama administration orders Border Patrol to “catch and release” illegal aliens

The Constitutional function of the Executive Branch is to oversee the implementation of US laws. Time and time again, however, the Obama administration has simply ignored the law completely, instead enforcing policies made up out of thin air as if they were law. Yesterday, it was revealed that the Obama administration has ordered the US Border Patrol to release all illegal aliens who claim that they crossed the border before January 2014.

Obama to push $10-per-barrel oil tax for green transportation plan
Obama will look to assess a $10 fee on every barrel of oil.
By Devin Henry

President Obama will propose a $10-per-barrel fee on oil production to fund a new green transportation plan, the White House announced Thursday.

The proposal would go toward a $32.4 billion annual push to green the transportation sector by funding public transit, an urban planning initiative and clean vehicle research, the White House said in a fact sheet. Obama will include the plan in the budget request he releases next week.

The plan will likely die in the GOP-controlled Congress, which will vet Obama’s budget request before writing spending bills later this year.

But the proposal represents a new front in Obama’s climate change end-game: After finalizing carbon reduction regulations for the electricity sector last year, he is turning his attention back to the transportation sector, which accounts for 30 percent of American carbon emissions every year.

“The president’s plan does what we need to once again have a transportation system that is a source of American strength while at the same time taking steps to reduce carbon emissions and fight climate change,” Jeff Zients, the director of the National Economic Council, told reporters Thursday.

Charging the fee to oil companies, the White House said, is both a funding mechanism for the transportation initiative and an incentive for the private sector to move toward cleaner fuel.

Bernie and the Millennials
The New Yorker is wrong. Young people are attracted to Bernie Sanders because of economic insecurity, not naive idealism.

First, some context. Exit polls from Iowa, according to Vox, show that “Sanders absolutely dominated young adult voters, in a way that even Barack Obama couldn’t in 2008.” Eighty-four percent of voters under thirty, and 58 percent of voters between thirty and forty-four, cast their ballots for Sanders. More generally, as countless articles have noted, younger voters are shifting left, embracing ancient taboos like socialism and other heresies…

Does Bernie Sanders’ Imperialism Matter?
Critiquing Bernie Sanders from the left can be a lonely project. There is a “hope”-powered hysteria surrounding his campaign, and bursting the “hope” bubble can produce a fierce backlash. The Sanders “hope” explosion is so fierce because capitalism has become a hopeless place.

Hope can be positive by pushing people into political action, but it’s also exploited by the establishment as shiny bait. Obama, for example, fished for votes using “hope” and reeled in the presidency. He then clubbed “hope” senseless by betraying his promises, continuing war and maintaining the domestic policies of the 1%. Hope was so thoroughly thrashed that a new messiah of hope was needed to cure the Obama-fortified hopelessness.

Bernie’s version of hope is deeper than Obama’s shallow PR electoral campaign, but under capitalism real “hope” isn’t a simple recipe, and Bernie is missing some key ingredients, most notably “anti-imperialism,” which is exemplified in Bernie’s reactionary foreign policy positions.


FactChecking the MSNBC Debate

We found several false and misleading claims in the debate between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

  • Sanders claimed Clinton called Barack Obama “naive” in 2007 because he “thought it was a good idea to talk to our enemies.” That lacks context. Clinton objected not to meeting with enemies, but to Obama’s statement that he would do so without preconditions.
  • Sanders claimed that NAFTA and other trade deals have cost “millions” of U.S. jobs, but independent economists have said the impact on the economy was small.
  • Clinton revised history in discussing her opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership. She supported the trade deal as secretary of state.
  • Sanders mixed and matched two different sets of data to claim that “millions of Americans … are working longer hours for low wages.”
  • Sanders said that his campaign “did not suggest that we had the endorsement” of the Nashua Telegraph in a new TV ad running in New Hampshire. In fact, the ad leaves that false impression.
  • Clinton said “the Wall Street guys are trying so hard to stop me.” But Clinton and PACs that support her have raised millions from Wall Street interests.
  • Sanders said that his campaign could better deliver a large voter turnout, the key to a Democrat winning the White House in November. But statistics on voter turnout in presidential elections don’t show such a clear partisan trend.
  • Sanders wrongly claimed that “not one Republican has the guts to recognize that climate change is real.” Two of the Republican presidential candidates, not to mention more Republicans in Congress, have said climate change is real and humans contribute to it.
  • While discussing the Trans Pacific Partnership, Sanders ascribed an inaccurately low figure for the minimum wage in Vietnam.
  • Sanders claimed that the United States has “the highest rate of childhood poverty of almost any major country on earth.” But the childhood poverty rate is higher in several industrialized economies.
