The Obama Adminsitration: Ideologically Extreme, Hyper-Partisan and Incompetent

Thursday, May 6, 2010  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The focus is now on the incompetence issue, with evidence mounting every day in the Gulf and in the Times Square terrorist case.

Even one of these charges is a tough burden for the president’s party to carry into November, but all three make the road ahead for Democrats very unpleasant. No wonder Obey tossed in the towel. Who’s next?

BP and the ESA

Thursday, May 6, 2010  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The Endangered Species Act is a very tough statute, backed by criminal fines and penalties, assessed on an every bird/fish/animal basis. Thus if 30 individual endangered sea turtles are killed (or injured) by the spill, that’s thirty potential counts of ESA violations.

BP’s exposure under the ESA is immense and as yet little reported on.

The brown pelican was delisted in November, but look for someone inside the Department of the Interior to examine an emergency relisting of the bird.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is mobilized to assist in the care of any species harmed by the oil, but the liability for those injuries will not escape their enforcement division. NOAA’s Office of Enforcement will also certainly be compiling its case as the impacts to species mount.

First Past the Post?

The Times of Lonndon will be the place to check throughout the day for the latest in returns from Great Britain.

The Washington Post’s Dan Balz is reporting from London. (And if you have not done so already, check out PostPolitics.com where the WaPo has begun to post all news political –a head on challenge to Politico.com. The Post is still lacking a genuine conservative voice among its bloggers, but so too is Politico. The first of them to present a reliable source(s) for conservative news reported with accuracy and analysis but absent the disdain will get a march on the other.)

Hopefully by Friday morning, David Cameron will be fashioning a cabinet of serious minds and resolute purpose.
