VITAL legislation on Obama’s climate change initiative was blocked in a 5-4 vote by the Supreme Court just a few days ago.
The Hill previously reported on the Supremes’ decision, and explains why this vote was so important to the Obama administration......
“The court granted the request in a 5-4 vote on Tuesday night, saying the rule was on hold until the circuit court reviews it and Supreme Court appeals are exhausted. The court’s four liberal justices dissented from the decision.
The rule — the Clean Power Plan — is the main plank of Obama’s climate change agenda. It’s designed to cut carbon pollution from the electricity sector by 32 percent over 2005 levels by 2030 by assigning states individual reduction targets based on their energy mix.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest said in a statement that the administration disagrees with the order, but ‘we remain confident that we will prevail’ when the rule is argued on its merits.
The stay means Obama will likely leave office with the fate of his premier climate policy undecided.
The circuit court plans to hear arguments on the rule in June, meaning the Supreme Court probably won’t get a chance to hear or rule on the regulation until after Obama’s term ends in January.

Heart Attack Gun
Former CIA employee Mary Embree discusses the infamous heart attack gun. The weapon was first made public during the Church Committee hearings in 1975. Very lethal & untraceable, using this weapon a murder is made to look natural. No doubt the CIA has been using this weapon and has most likely improved upon it since the 70's.
This clip is an excerpt from "Secrets of the CIA" 1998

So lets get this straight. Are you accusing Obama of murdering a Supreme Court justice in order to get his way on the decision?
Get it straight.
The article might be.
I'm asking for opinions for and against.
