Obama Bypasses Congress to Mandate
Black Boxes for All Cars --
Beginning in ´14

Cybercast News Service, by Pete Winn

Bypassing Congress, the Obama administration has issued a proposed administrative rule, which if adopted, would mandate the installation of "black boxes" in all automobiles and light trucks beginning in 2014. (Snip) The proposed standard would require automakers to install event data recorders (EDRs) – so-called “black box devices” -- to collect specific safety related data in all light passenger vehicles beginning Sept. 1, 2014. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said approximately 96 percent of model year 2013 passenger cars and light-duty vehicles are already equipped with

Comments:
Like your "smartphone," these black boxes will really be tracking your movements and whereabouts. Crash data will be at the low end of list of its real purpose.

It´s actually a good thing that it is done this way. Too many people don´t understand what has already been done to, I mean, for them.

1. zippy cannot be allowed to bypass Congress;
2. Anyone who thinks this is for safety is naive. This is a stalinistic tactic to track us (think of the mandate to computerize our medical records).
3. zippy must be stopped.

There HAVE been data gathering boxes in cars for years. That is why insurance companies can tell what speed you were travleing, and if brakes were applied before a collision. Of course, I am sure these new boxes will have a lot for info gathered.
AND the cost is added to the purchase price of the cars.

The budget negations can get a kick start if Congress simply shutters its doors and goes home. It´s blatantly obvious that with obama bypassing congress so frequently, and with congress´s response being a resounding hush, the U.S. Congress no longer serves a purpose. They should close up, go home and save us the money wasted on an occupied but empty building.

All these extralegal "mandates" and executive orders can be challenged in federal court. EOs are only supposed to apply to federal agencies and federal employees. Unless Congress ceded to the DOT the power to establish these types of mandates, they are illegal. The reason that the Transportation Secretary can promulgate CAFE standards is because Congress gave DOT that authority back in the 70s.

From Wikipedia: "The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regulates CAFE standards and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) measures vehicle fuel efficiency. U.S. Congress specifies that CAFE standards must be set at the "maximum feasible level" given consideration for:
1) technological feasibility;
2) economic practicality;
3) effect of other standards on fuel economy;
4) need of the nation to conserve energy."

NHTSA is part of DOT. As with so much of what comes out of Washington, DC, unelected bureaucrats are empowered to create regulations that have the force of law (see Obamacare). But Congress does have to specifically give up that power.

#29, the reason they want to tax mileage is that they are simultaneously trying to get us all to drive electric or hybrid vehicles, thus reducing their "take" from gasoline use (as does the increased CAFE standards on vehicle fuel economy mandated for the next 20 years)... they see a huge source of tax revenue being lost over time.

The Palestinian Authority on Monday gave US Secretary of State John Kerry 24 hours to get Israel to release the fourth batch of terrorists, according to AFP, after which they will resume moves to seek international recognition. "If we don't get an answer from John Kerry on the prisoners tonight, we'll begin to ask for membership in all UN agencies tomorrow," Palestinian MP Mustafa Barghuti told AFP following a top-level leadership meeting in Ramallah which took place as Kerry arrived in Israel.

CIA misled on interrogation

A report by the Senate Intelligence Committee concludes that the CIA misled the government and the public about aspects of its brutal interrogation program for years — concealing details about the severity of its methods, overstating the significance of plots and prisoners, and taking credit for critical pieces of intelligence that detainees had in fact surrendered before they were subjected to harsh techniques. The report, built around detailed chronologies of dozens of CIA detainees, documents a long-standing pattern of unsubstantiated claims as agency officials sought permission to use — and later tried to defend — excruciating interrogation

Washington - An Idaho man who pleaded guilty to firing an assault rifle at the White House in 2011 has been sentenced to 25 years in prison. A federal judge in Washington sentenced Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez on Monday. Prosecutors had asked he spend 27 ½ years in prison for the shooting. No one was injured, but prosecutors say Ortega-Hernandez hit the executive mansion about eight times and did nearly $100,000 in damage. Ortega-Hernandez´s lawyers argued he was suffering from extreme depression and mental stress at the time of the shooting and was under the misguided belief that Armageddon was coming.

Booker, who is also known as Muhammad Abdullah Hassan, was recruited by the U.S. Army in Kansas City, Mo., in February 2014 and was scheduled to report for basic training on April 7.

Detroit, MI - Release from General Motors website: General Motors informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration today that it would recall more than 1.3 million vehicles in the U.S. that may experience a sudden loss of electric power steering assist. If power steering assist is lost, a message displays on the Driver Information Center and a chime sounds to inform the driver. Steering control can be maintained because the vehicle will revert to manual steering, but greater driver effort would be required at low vehicle speeds, which could increase the risk of a crash.

Iowa City, Iowa - Iowa continues to maintain an internal "do not rehire" list of fired employees who are barred from returning to state employment, even though judges have raised questions about its legality, according to a review by The Associated Press. Since 2009, judges have said three times that the Iowa Department of Administrative Services doesn´t have "the statutory or regulatory authority" to issue lifetime employment bans against fired workers, but the list has steadily grown, records show. As of January, 1,471 people were barred from being reconsidered for executive branch employment, data show.

U.S. Ambassador to India Nancy Powell announced her resignation Monday after only two years on the job, sparking some speculation overseas that the administration may have been looking to replace her. Powell only arrived in India in April 2012, and these diplomatic posts typically last three years. The buzz in New Delhi is that Powell’s departure may be related to ongoing tensions over the uproar in India after the arrest of Devyani Khobragade, an Indian diplomat in New York, on charges of falsifying visa documents for her maid/nanny and then lying to investigators about what she was paying the domestic worker.

Obamacare, the plan purportedly created to provide health coverage for the uninsured, has enrolled just 1.7% of America´s 48.6 million uninsured. News of the disastrous numbers comes as nervous Democrats and President Barack Obama, ahead of the November midterm elections, did their best on Monday´s enrollment deadline to put a positive spin on the deeply unpopular Obamacare program. (Snip) The White House now claims an Obamacare enrollment figure of six million people. However, according to The New York Times, at least 20% of those never paid their premiums to activate coverage, leaving them uninsured.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease.
