Members of both parties in the House and Senate chambers of Congress — including Representative Justin Amash (R-Mich.) and Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) — have strongly condemned President Obama for flouting the War Powers Act as the nation's war effort against Libya passes its 60th day.
In response to President Obama�s announcement that he supports Palestinian demands to redraw the Israeli borders to the pre-1967 parameters, Representative Allen West (R-Fla., pictured) declared that Obama�s endorsement of that policy �could be the beginning of the end as we know it for the Jewish state.�
West labeled Obama�s support of the pre-1967 borders the �most egregious foreign policy decision,� explaining:
The Republican-controlled legislature of Tennessee has become the latest in a growing number of states to tackle public-employees unions. On May 19, its House of Representatives voted 59 to 39 to remove from teachers' unions significant collective bargaining rights. Though the bill does not affect bargaining for pay or benefits, it does take away the right to bargain on issues such as job performance, classroom assignments, and bonus pay.
There may be trouble in paradise between the Obama administration and its union support as AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka (left) is expected to issue an ultimatum to the administration in a speech this afternoon at the National Press Club. According to Trumka, congressional Democrats aren�t doing enough to back labor unions.
