There is a new threat facing the nation’s armed forces, and the Department of Defense is not doing enough about it. The threat? Global climate change. - http://silas216.tumblr.com/post...

Albert Einstein is rumored to have said that one cannot solve a problem with the same thinking that led to it. Yet this is precisely what we are now trying to do with climate change policy…. [I]t doesn’t make sense. Natural gas is not the bridge to clean energy; it’s the road to more climate change. - http://silas216.tumblr.com/post...
It is not unusual for powerful industries to go on the attack to undermine unfavorable news reports. Even though [fossil fuel front group spokesman] Mr. Everly speaks as if he is protecting the public from misrepresentations by media with an agenda, in fact he is protecting the bottom line of the oil and gas industry, which pays his salary. - http://silas216.tumblr.com/post...

 It turns out that scary, mysterious gigantic black hole discovered by oil workers in Siberia several weeks ago might be even more concerning than we even thought.
 
In findings that have seriously alarmed environmental scientists, two more chasms have recently been discovered, leading experts to believe they’re part of an alarming trend.

John Boehner, Asshole of the Day for July 29, 2014

Three weeks ago Sarah Palin spelled out the case for why she thinks "It’s Time To Impeach Obama". Since then there has been lots of talk about it— is it prudent, could it backfire, etc.
 
And of course on the Democrat side, there has been fundraising off this new turn. There was fundraising off previous showdowns — before and during— the shutdown last fall comes to mind, and the fundraising was on both sides. This happens. But Speaker John Boehner says it’s different this time— that it’s all a scam by Democrats:
  
"Listen, this whole talk about impeachment is coming from the president’s own staff, and coming from Democrats on Capitol Hill. Why? Because they’re trying to rally their people to give money and to show up in this year’s election," the Ohio Republican told reporters, in response to a question.
 
"We have no plans to impeach the president. We have no future plans," a visibly frustrated Boehner said. "Listen, it’s all a scam started by Democrats at the White House."
  
Really. A scam.
 
So if it’s a scam, then any talk we see happening would all be trumped up by Democrats and not by elected officials or major voices in the GOP, right? Let’s see:
 House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) refused to rule out trying to impeach Obama (7/27) Rep. Lou Barletta (R-PA) said efforts to impeach Obama “probably could” pass the House of Representatives (6/16) Sarah Palin “It’s Time To Impeach Obama” (7/08) Two-thirds of Republicans believe Obama should be impeached (7/14) The Blaze: Here’s How to Impeach Obama…for Consumer Fraud (7/29) Rep. Steve King Predicts Impeachment if Obama Grants Executive Amnesty (7/26) 
And that’s really just 5 minutes on Google.
 
And yes, Speaker Boehner has himself ruled out impeachment, but let’s not pretend that he is so in control of his caucus that this could never happen. He said there would be no shutdown at this point last year. Then during the August recess the Tea Party wing drummed up the base for a shutdown, and lo and behold, the shutdown happened.
 
So it’s not a scam. It could happen. The House GOP has spent more time in the last 4 years on show votes (repeal! abortion!) and showdowns (debt limit! sequester! shutdown!) than on anything else, so they could return in September and start impeachment, even with an election staring them in the face. But John Boehner pretends like none of that ever happened. And for that, he is Asshole of the Day.
 
It is John Boehner's 10th time as Asshole of the Day.

Just Now in Gaza, a baby born from dead mother who has been killed by Israeli army 
 
A LIFE FROM DEATH
  
Eight hospitals, nine medical clinics and 14 ambulances have been bombed since Israel launched an offensive in the densely populated, narrow 40-kilometer-long coastal strip Gaza. Home to 1.8 million Palestinians, the U.K.’s Prime Minister David Cameron has called Gaza “an open-air prison”. 
 
According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, in the last 20 days four of the 1,000 killed were health professionals and 14 of the 6,000 injured were health professionals.
 
Israeli military warplanes and tanks have also hit residential neighborhoods, schools and shelters. The U.N. estimates that more than 74 percent of those killed are civilians. 
 
Under the threat of bombs, doctors like Bassel Abuward, Belal, Saeed Kanafany, and Mads Gilbert are performing miracles at Gaza’s largest hospital Al-Shifa.

Israel already received $504 million for the joint U.S.-Israel Missle Defense Program for the Fiscal Year of 2014. That is not including the $3.1 Billion the Obama Administration spent on Foreign Military Financing (FMF) for Israel for the Fiscal Year 2014.
