Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, vowed this afternoon to block John Bryson as Secretary of Commerce.
From the senator’s website:

“By selecting John Bryson to head the Department of Commerce, President Obama is clearly demonstrating that he has no intention of backing down from his job-killing agenda,” Senator Inhofe said. “In fact, it is understandable that President Obama would select John Bryson as his nominee: he is a founder of a radical environmental organization and a member of a United Nations advisory group on climate change. Mr. Bryson once called the Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade bill ‘moderate’. This is legislation that would cost American taxpayers billions of dollars, destroy hundreds of thousands of jobs, and hurt families and workers by raising the price of gasoline and electricity. I will be working actively to defeat this nomination.”

G-d bless Senator Inhofe. Makes me proud that my family hails from Oklahoma.

CHART-TOPPING SINGER ADELE COMES OUT AGAINST NATIONAL HEALTH CARE, HIGH TAXES

Read more at The Blaze…

Adele — the curvy British woman with a raspy voice — is currently one the hottest singers on the radio. But now she’s taking heat not for her the melodic notes coming out her mouth, but for her words. Just get a load of what she said recently about nationalized health care and high taxes:

“I’m mortified to have to pay 50 per cent! [While] I use the NHS, I can’t use public transport any more. Trains are always late, most state schools are s**t, and I’ve gotta give you, like, four million quid – are you having a laugh? When I got my tax bill in from [her album] 19, I was ready to go and buy a gun and randomly open fire.”

Adele‘s comments come during a time in Britain where many of the country’s youth are blasting austerity. Consequently, the comments have been panned.
