Governor John Kasich is one who is not afraid to tackle on the issues to turn his state around.
Sources tells ABC News that President Obama has signed a secret presidential finding authorizing covert operations to “aid the effort” in Libya, where the US is working with NATO, and Arab partners to enforce a no-fly zone, protect civilians, and…
Reuters is reporting that the U.S. is now going to start arming the Libyan rebels:
(Reuters) - President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing covert U.S. government support for rebel forces seeking to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, government officials told Reuters on Wednesday.
Obama signed the order, known as a presidential “finding”, within the last two or three weeks, according to four U.S. government sources familiar with the matter.
A few thoughts here.
First of all, this “secret” order isn’t really a secret anymore, which makes one wonder who may have leaked it. There may be more dissension within the Administration over Libya than we’ve been led to beleive.
Second, this would seem to directly contradict the policy that the President announced in his speech on Monday.
Donal Trump “isn’t just visiting New Hampshire — he’s in discussions to hire staff,” Politico reports.
“Michael Cohen, an aide to Trump who’s been hyping the real estate mogul’s latest presidential tease, is talking to New Hampshire activists and is in advanced discussions with former state lawmaker Fran Wendelboe to help consult on a potential campaign.”

A longtime resident pointed out to the commission at its meeting last week one possible reason for the city’s abysmal 4.5 percent turnout on March 8: A dearth of campaign signage.
Alex Casas, the resident, said he saw a lot fewer signs this campaign period than ever before.
Mayor Lori Moseley said that’s probably accurate. This time, the city enforced a law on the books since 2003 restricting signage. The law says campaign signs can only be placed on commercial property if the candidate has written permission from the property owner.
The result of decreased signage was decreased voter awareness, Casas contended.
“Voters in Miramar need to be educated and constantly reminded when elections are taking place, and one of the ways I believe they are reminded is by seeing all the signs on corners of the people running for office,” said Alex Casas, who ran for the same open commission seat in November.

Thousands of union workers may have shown up at the Capitol yesterday to protest the loss of collective bargaining rights but it did little to sway Gov. Rick Snyder. The governor signed the Emergency Financial Manager legislation into law despite those protests.
Many Democrats and labor unions criticized the legislation as a state power grab that could set up virtual dictatorships and strip power from local elected officials. The Republican governor said the legislation will let the state offer assistance earlier when local governments and school districts are in financial distress and give financial managers better tools to exert change.
“For too long in this state, we’ve avoided making the tough decisions,” Snyder said. “But waiting limits options and makes the solutions much more painful.”
Emergency managers appointed under this law certainly will not lack for options; they are given near-dictatorial powers to dissolve contracts, sell off assets and even disband elected boards.
