Global Governance vs. National Sovereignty

The International Conference on Global Governance vs. National Sovereignty, sponsored by American Freedom Alliance, concluded Monday in Los Angeles CA.

The chief question posed at the Conference’s opening: Is Global Governance vs. National Sovereignty the West’s next ideological war?

John Bolton, Former U.S. Ambassador to the UN gave Sunday morning’s Keynote Speech. Ambassador Bolton spoke from first hand experience, sharing front line knowledge accumulated through years of engagement in international diplomacy. He not only gave definition to the term “the Global Governance Movement”, he also described its agenda, which is to subvert national sovereignty in favor of a supranational authority through the invention and initiation of international laws and norms.

After his speech, Ambassador Bolton welcomed Dr. John Fonte, Senior Fellow and Director of the Center for American Common Culture at the Hudson Institution, John Yoo, Professor of Law at the University of California at Berkley, Steven Groves, the Bernard and Barbara Lomas Fellow at the Heritage Institute’s Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom, and Michael Shaw, guiding attorney for Freedom Advocates.org to the stage. The five elaborated intelligently on the consequences of increasing subservience by sovereign nations to the ideology of Global Governance. Both the political makeup and the ideological activism of the UN were indicted.

Following morning breakout sessions focused on:

  • Non-governmental organizations as purveyors of Global Governance
  • The Green Movement, Agenda 21, Global Warming alarmism and Global Governance
  • Who will control the Internet and who will control the seas

The afternoon was kicked off by a Keynote Speech by President Vaclav Klaus, President of the Czech Republic. President Klaus spoke directly of the prospects of Global Governance and its European variant, the European Union. Drawing upon his experience as a leader of a former Soviet bloc country, President Klaus warned against the threat of independent sovereign states surrendering control to an un-elected, unaccountable extra-national governing body in a distant capitol.

Larry Greenfield, National Executive Director of the Jewish Institution for National Security Affairs, invited Robert O’Brien, Managing Partner of the Los Angeles office of Arent Fox LLP, Donald Kochan, Professor of Law at Chapman University School of Law and Elan Journo, a fellow in foreign policy at the Ayn Rand Institute into a discussion about the politicization of international law and its impact on national sovereignty. Global and international law were identified as both threats to and the means by which national sovereignty is undermined.

Subsequent to afternoon breakout sessions focusing on:

  • The demonization/diminishment of the United States and Israel as a chief Global Governance strategy
  • Law-fare, international humanitarian law and their role in undermining sovereignty
  • The role of Islam in fostering and encouraging Global Governance

The Honorable John Howard, Australia’s 25th Prime Minister gave the day’s concluding Keynote Speech. The former Prime Minister discussed the concept of the nation state and why it still matters to countries that enjoy governance by popularly elected representative governments.

Sunday’s last panel, featuring President Klaus, Nonie Darwish, founder of Arabs for Israel, John Yoo and John Fonte discussed whether or not liberal democracies have the strength and will to defend their national sovereignty. The endurance of strong constitutions and distinct cultural identities were viewed as key elements in an ongoing uphill struggle by sovereign nation-states against the intrusions of Global Governance. Panelists considered these elements necessary to fending off the introduction and implementation of transnational ambitions by proponents of Global Governance.

The Conference reconvened Monday morning with a spirited discussion concerned with using the political process and judicial system to thwart and defeat Global Governance activism. A distinctly academic intellectual discussion about whether Constitutional Law was robust enough to prevent the political branches of government from violating the Constitution through treaties whose provisions conflict with constitutional guarantees was initiated by Eugene Volokh, professor of law at UCLA School of Law. Professor Volokh gave an extensive portrayal of why the introduction of Sharia Law into the American judicial system is not threatening U.S. Constitutional rule of law. His observations were challenged by Larry Greenfield, Steven Groves and by John Yoo. Professor Volokh’s defense of his position was based primarily on viewing individual situations and circumstances as singular, isolated potential constitutional violations easily rationalized away by equating Islam’s ambitions to those of other, more benign religious institutions found in America. This approach was resounding rejected by Stephen Coughlin, a fellow of the American Freedom Alliance, who successfully portrayed the fallacy of ignoring the global dominance agenda openly preached and taught by proponents of Islamic global dominance under Sharia Law. Mr. Coughlin’s remarks received applause from Conference attendees.

After an address by Professor Mike Farris of Patrick Henry University on how Global Governance threatens the nuclear family through international laws and treaties, the Conference concluded with a reading of and discussion about the Conference Declaration.

The Declaration of Los Angeles: Sovereignty, Democracy and Individual Rights are Indivisible.

We, the undersigned, do hereby append our signatures to the statement below and declare:

THAT national sovereignty, constitutional democracy and the protection of individual rights are indivisible.

THAT constitutional democratic representative government is the most successful political system ever devised by the human mind.

THAT democratic self-government has only existed—and can only exist—within the sovereign liberal democratic nation state in which the people rule themselves.

THAT the principles of liberty, national independence and democratic self-government as articulated in Britain’s establishment of parliamentary democracy, the founding of the American republic, the establishment of the state of Israel, the achievement of dominion status in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, the traditional national sovereignty of European democracies, and the continuing growth of liberal democracy in Asia, Latin America and Africa, are superior to any forms of global governance.

THAT the assertion of constitutional government’s obsolescence and decline is utterly false.

THAT while international cooperation should be encouraged and international treaties respected, no supranational authority which claims jurisdiction over liberal democratic states without the consent of the governed should be accepted.

THAT non-governmental organizations which purport to represent an international constituency do not have the legal or political authority to speak for the citizens of liberal democratic nation states, only democratically elected representatives have such legitimate democratic authority.

THAT the constitutions of our respective nations remain the supreme and inalienable law of our lands and if ever a conflict arises between our respective constitutions and any form of supranational authority (such as interpretations of international law, rulings of the United Nations, judgements of international courts, etc.), our Constitutions and constitutional principles will always prevail.

THAT we call on leaders of democratic nation states to reject the demands of transnational advocates to subsume domestic law to international law and stand together with us in upholding the principles of national sovereignty while rejecting the claims and arguments of global governance advocates.

Coming Soon to a Doctor’s Office Near You – The Global Warming Debate

When Chad Kent, the resident Constitutionalist here, came to me about a story on Global Warming folks weaseling their way into the field of medicine, I was moderately intrigued. He told me about a paper that had been published by American Family Physician, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Academy of Family Physicians, that was giving physicians suggestions on how to reduce the effects of Global Warming by encouraging their patients to live healthier. Now, leftists playing politics with health care with Obamacare is one thing, but starting to lobby doctors with their environmental agenda directly is something else entirely.
Physician
While I managed to end up with full-text of this article, only the abstract of “Global Warming – Benefits for Patients and the Planet” is available publicly. The author of this paper, Cindy L. Parker, MD, is a member of the faculty at Johns Hopkins University. In short, her thesis is that since it’s a foregone conclusion that human beings are to blame for Global Warming (she regularly substitutes this term for the “less pejorative” Climate Change), it makes sense for physicians to encourage their patients to eat less red meat and use bicycles or other human-powered means of transportation more often. This would theoretically make an appreciable change in the amount of carbon emissions, and thus help to slow the damage we are doing to the environment.

As relative proof for her contention on alternative forms of transportation, Parker cites data that shows there had been a noticeable decline in ozone concentration in Atlanta, GA during the 1996 Olympic games, and in Beijing, China, during the Olympics in 2008. The Olympic Committee restricts the use of motor vehicles for the duration of the games, so there was less car exhaust in those areas at those times. As for the dietary changes, there is a more convoluted equation that includes the amount of oil-based products used in agriculture, and the negative effects they have on the environment.

Now, it is difficult to argue against the idea that eating less red meat and being more active are intelligent choices for health-conscious Americans. However, taking the additional step of suggesting to doctors that encouraging these behaviors may have the additional side-effect of combating Global Warming is troublesome at best. Readers of AFP Journal did reply to this article, and pointed out some perceived flaws in the theory, primarily on the science Parker chose to back her thesis. One part of the editorial response to the readers’ feedback is rather telling.

3. Scientific process: When Dr. Parker first proposed this article, we challenged the author to justify how this information could be of use to the office-based physician, in terms of improving practice and patient outcomes. The author replied with a detailed explanation about how physicians can counsel their patients in ways that would help their health, as well as be good for the environment – a double benefit. These included eating less red meat and using bicycles for exercise and transportation. Although we were aware that the issue of global warming is controversial, we did not think that these particular recommendations, which are consistent with current national guidelines on healthy diet and physical activity, would be considered controversial.

As is standard for every clinical review article, the manuscript was independently assessed by two medical editors and three external reviewers. The reviews were supportive of the article’s basic concept, and provided helpful recommendations to strengthen and increase its relevance to the practicing family physician.

To provide additional perspective on this topic, we solicited an accompanying editorial. It described the Healthier Hospitals Initiative, and also said: “the American Medical Association (AMA), in concert with the American Nurses Association and the American Public Health Association, has strongly supported educating health professionals about the impacts of climate change. The AMA is a major participant in the Climate and Health Literacy Consortium, which has developed free standard PowerPoint presentations for hospital administrators and clinical staff.”

Finally, Dr. Parker is codirector of the Program on Global Sustainability and Health and director of the Global Environmental Change and Sustainability major and minor at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and is an expert in the field. We mention this to indicate that this article was not published without due deliberation and discourse.

In writing, and life, context is everything. Parker is a researcher with an agenda, and a rather severe bias. Her entire career is based on proving links between the environment and people’s health. This article is just a small part of her work. Before trying to tell our doctors to encourage us to live healthier to save the planet, she wrote a book telling us directly. And it’s not hard to figure out why she might target the petroleum industry in particular, albeit indirectly, through the agriculture industry. Parker is also a proponent of the Peak Oil theory – that we are approaching a point of critical mass where petroleum use versus supply is concerned. Due to being over-reliant on oil, society will reach a point where shortages in that resource will start a domino effect, particularly in agriculture, that will lead to famines and radical inflation. But, that is yet another short-sighted theory from the world of environmentalists, primarily because it gives little or no consideration to one thing that the petroleum industry takes into account when making projections about the worldwide oil supply. It does not take into account the fact that industry in general is continually searching for and implementing technologies that increase fuel efficiency. The irony of this shouldn’t be lost on most conservatives, since a great deal of that research was essentially forced on the automobile industry in particular by the environmentalists themselves, in the form of governmental regulations.

So what do we take away from all of this, as conservatives? This should be considered a warning shot. While it’s unlikely that Parker’s research and writings will manage to make many waves with anyone that doesn’t already agree with her anyway, it would be foolish to not consider this a harbinger of things to come. Combine this with the current advertising campaigns featuring children with breathing problems promoting EPA initiatives on the Hill, and it is obvious that environmentalists are moving closer to the reality of the situation. No matter how much they want to say that they want to save the planet, that simply isn’t the case. We can’t save something that doesn’t need saving. The planet will still be here long after we’re gone, unless we disappear because the planet itself is destroyed in some cosmic event.

What environmentalists really are trying to save is our ability to live comfortably on this planet. Whether or not Global Warming is actually occurring, and whether or not it is being caused by our current use of fossil fuels are matters for scientists interested in dealing with pure theory. Their findings are irrelevant, because we do not have the means at our disposal to make radical changes anyway. Green technology research has not reached the point where it can give us viable replacements for our current fuel needs. The best that we can do until viable replacements become mass-marketable is to continue focusing on increasing fuel efficiency, and decreasing carbon emissions through improved filtration technology. Cars built today do not cause anywhere near the amount of pollution as those built in the 1970’s and earlier. Arguably, the only thing standing in the way of scientists focusing on applying the technology that accomplished that in the automobile industry to other high-carbon emission industries is the fascination with finding the next best fuel.

So, if your doctor starts trying to sell you on the idea of eating less red meat, and riding bicycles to work as your own little way to save the planet, please do set that physician straight. If you choose to do it, make sure the doctor knows it’s because you want to improve your own health, and that’s all. Sorry, but no one is going to save the world by choosing salad over steak, or pedaling over driving.

Romney's sordid climate past

Presidential candidate and former governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney is going to have a lot of explaining to do if he wins the nomination from the GOP. As he is often accused of flip-flopping on issues of abortion and gun rights, one heated issue that Romney has yet to address is human-caused global warming.

As the media begins their opposition research on the likely GOP candidate, video footage, previous news reports and Massachusetts legislation are coming to light in which Romney clearly voices his commitment to the climate change stance that human beings are making the earth warmer.

In June 2012 while on the campaign trail, a reporter caught Romney with a sound bite. “I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that,” he said.

Is Romney really a liberal? Not exactly.

Romney is a business man, and a highly successful one at that. While at Bain & Company and Bain Capital, he made millions of dollars helping clients invest, reorganize and take advantage of tax breaks and government initiatives to grow their businesses. Many of the government initiatives, both in the U.S. and abroad, involve trading carbon credits.

What are the initiatives of Bain?

“Experts agree that climate change and environmental degradation must be tackled on a global scale.”

Though not controversial for a consulting firm to be interested in conserving energy, the Bain Company seems to have a particular affinity for carbon credit trading, which would have occurred on the Chicago Climate Exchange, had the Cap and Trade bill passed last year.” — Examiner.com

Whether or not Romney believes in global warming is really of no consequence. Of all the issues on which Romney has changed his opinion, global warming is not among them. He is an extremely intelligent man. He surely understands that his reputation with his clients is at stake should he flip flop on this issue.

The republican party “regulars” like Senator John McCain and Governor Jeb Bush seem to be propping Romney up as the inevitable nominee. Have they given thought to his ability to win, knowing he has a history of telling voters what they want to hear but doing something quite different once elected or worse, once hired?

With the help of the mainstream media outlets, the DNC will have a large arsenal of media material exposing Romney’s affinity for carbon credits and human-caused climate change.

How will he spin it?

“When you put a moderate republican against a real democrat, the real democrat wins every time.” — Ann Coulter

Bain, climate change and Romney's Achilles heel

Yet another debate looms. Will the moderator dare ask questions related to climate change legislation, CO2 emissions, the potential for millions of dollars in profit to Romney’s former employer Bain & Company should a global carbon trading system be thrust upon the United States?

Doubtful.

For months I have begged, pleaded, Facebook’d and Tweeted to debate moderators from nearly every debate thus far to PLEASE ask the question, “Do you or your investments stand to make significant financial gains through climate change legislation?” Not one moderator has bitten. Heck, not one REPORTER on the campaign trail has bothered to ask anything remotely resembling a question about Romney’s climate change beliefs and how it relates to his work at Bain.

The truth is, voters need to know the answer… before the GOP nomination process is complete. As noted just last summer, Romney has never backed off his assertion that human beings are creating global warming and that world leaders need to do something about it.

This conversation is particularly important this week as the World Economic Forum converges in Davos, Switzerland. Bain & Company is “proud to be a strategic partner and active member of the World Economic Forum, an independent international organization committed to improving the state of the world by engaging leaders in partnerships to shape global, regional and industry agendas.” (www.bain.com)

Bain & Company is quite clear on their opinions of climate change and carbon emissions. In one post entitled “The green edge: Why carbon competitiveness matters,” Bain writers attempt to convince potential clients to “gain a lead over industry rivals by reducing your company’s exposure to carbon.”

Bain offers strategies to overcome the inevitable carbon regulations imposed by governments worldwide.

“As governments around the globe regulate the emission of greenhouse gases with increasing severity in the next two decades, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions will become a financial liability, not just at the industry level but also at the company level. Carbon regulation will change the competitive landscape of many industries but will also fundamentally change the competitive standing of individual companies within the industry.”

The cozy relationship between the WEF and Bain & Company should be explored. Romney should be questioned, especially considering what is easily found with a few clicks on the WEF website.

“The World Economic Forum engages business, government and experts in partnerships to create the low-carbon economy. The World Economic Forum provides a neutral platform to develop universal carbon emissions reporting.”

Ed Morrissey of HotAir.com outlines in detail Romney’s love affair with CO2 emission standards, Obama’s “Climate Change Guru” Holdren and hiring climate change activists.

Voters deserve to know what Romney’s opinions and plans are when it comes to submitting the United States to international climate activists’ demands on carbon. Will he stand up for the sovereignty of America and against global regulations? Could this be the arrow that finally plants firmly in the heel of the otherwise infallible Romney?

Canada Quits Kyoto as Globalists Step Up Climate Change Money-Grab

Two major news headlines came out yesterday, Dec. 11, 2011, that when read separately do not lead the readers to see the complete picture of how one is directly connected to the other. Headline 1, from Business Standard was titled, Canada quits Kyoto Protocol, becomes first nation to do so. The second headline is from Fox News.com titled, >U.N. Climate Conference Reaches Hard-Fought Agreement.

In the first headline from Business Standard we see the following explanation about Canada dropping out of the original Kyoto Protocol, which is explained here from the United Nations Kyoto Protocol/Climate Change homepage as:

The Kyoto Protocol is an international agreement linked to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The major feature of the Kyoto Protocol is that it sets binding targets for 37 industrialized countries and the European community for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions .These amount to an average of five per cent against 1990 levels over the five-year period 2008-2012
The major distinction between the Protocol and the Convention is that while the Convention encouraged industrialized countries to stabilize GHG emissions, the Protocol commits them to do so.
(emphasis mine)

As the above headline states, Canada has now refused to abide by any further mandates by the globalists in the U.N. that were inserted into the original Kyoto protocol. Canada’s conservative P.M., Stephan Harper and their Environmental Minister, Peter Kent released the following statements as to why they will no longer allow the U.N. Climate Change manipulators to basically charge Canada for carbon emissions, siphon off that wealth to other countries, while the two largest emitters, China and the United States are not covered under the newest U.N Climate Change mandates that were established just two days ago at the U.N. Climate Change Conference held in Durban, S. Africa.( now known as the Durban Platform)

“We are invoking Canada’s legal right to formally withdraw from Kyoto,” Environment Minister Peter Kent said, two days after a marathon UN climate conference in Durban, South Africa, at which 194 nations agreed to work on a new roadmap to curb global carbon emissions. Before this week, the Kyoto Protocol covered less than 30% of global emissions. Now it covers less than 13% — and that number is only shrinking. The Kyoto Protocol does not cover the world’s two largest emitters – the United States and China – and therefore will not work” he said.

As the original Kyoto Protocol was shown to be pretty much a lopsided failure, as is usually the case when people try to get many different nations to agree on one set of rules, it has now been proven to be just the initial step in allowing the U.N. Climate Change plutocracy to take massive amounts of wealth from one country and give it to another country based on very shady and cloudy Global Warming theory-based mandates. We see this proven by several of the U.N. Durban conference attendee statements after the headlines hit the news announcing, U.N. Climate Change Conference Reaches Hard-Fought Agreement. From the above-linked Fox News article we see the following tidbits: (emphasis mine)

The proposed Durban Platform (COP17) offered answers to problems that have bedeviled global warming negotiations for years about sharing the responsibility for controlling carbon emissions and helping the world’s poorest and most climate-vulnerable nations cope with changing forces of nature.
Sunday’s deal also sets up the bodies that will collect, govern and distribute tens of billions of dollars a year for poor countries. Other documents in the package lay out rules for monitoring and verifying emissions reductions, protecting forests, transferring clean technologies to developing countries and scores of technical issues.

While the debate raged on, India objected to being included in the Durban Platform mandates under the guise that “developing nations” of the past 20 years should not pay for 200 years of Global warming caused by industrialized nations. If that is to be considered fair, how about “developing nations” compensating industrial nations for developing the very technology that reduces carbon reductions in the first place? India’s Environmental Minister, Jayanthi Natarajan did have the most compelling comment of the conference: “How do I give a blank check and give a legally binding agreement to sign away the rights of 1.2 billion people?”

This is the main problem with the U.N. being given the power to take wealth and technology from one nation to give it to the nation of their choice, under the guise of being World Climate Change Czars. This is also being driven by a conglomerate of Socialists that seem to want Americans to ignore just what that Socialism has done recently to the European Union countries. Canada has taken the lead in pulling out of this One World Government scheme that is hiding behind the initials U.N.

It would be wise for the U.S to pull out of this recently announced Durban Platform/Kyoto Protocol redo, and take a firm stand against this unfair attempt at redistributing America’s wealth and technology under the guise of saving the planet from the evil carbon emissions that have in fact, allowed America to help feed and develop other nations for over 200 years. Unless of course, the Globalists at the U.N. would like to discuss the other nations being mandated to pay America back for her centuries of contributions to carbon emission reductions, clean-air technology, food production, electricity generation etc. America’s system of capitalism has allowed the rest of the world to benefit from it for a long time now. Is that something we should bend over and let the U.N. Climate Change plutocrats and fear-mongers penalize us for?

Footnote: Actual commitments from the last minute “negotiations” at the Durban Platform conference have been slow to hit the news. Relative updates will be posted as they develop, including a final summary of just what, if anything this conference accomplished.

Update: Ed Morrissey over at hotair.com summed it up nicely:

So the “agreement” is a non-binding pledge to meet again and make another agreement in, oh, three or four years, and that agreement won’t have to take effect for another five years after that. The only commitments in the near future for the Durban agreement is some voluntary reduction goals that emerging nations won’t bother to meet and industrial nations will ignore. Just like … Kyoto.

The Latest on the Climate Change Hoax

 How much more climate change propaganda must we endure? Liberals’ solutions for what ails the world are based on the belief that carbon dioxide is climate-heating. Yet another study shows this to be rubbish. A study in the journal Science found that global temperatures appear to be far less sensitive to the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere than originally estimated. This study is another in a long line of revelations showing the scientific fraud at the heart of the global warming movement. Among leading European climate-change scientists, there has been a vast, global green conspiracy to silence scientific opposition to the idea, even to the point of falsifying data. The left’s false global warming ideology is collapsing under a growing body of evidence that the CO2 scare is a fraud.

Recently a batch of e-mails from “global warming scientists” have come to light on the eve of the latest round of UN climate talks in Durban, South Africa. Over 5,000 e-mails have been uncovered, and three themes emerge from them:

  1. Climate research scientists are taking measures to conceal rather than freely disseminate data and discussions.
  2. Climate research scientists view global warming as a political “cause” rather than a scientific inquiry.
  3. Climate research scientists admit to each other that much of the climate change “science” is weak and dependent on manipulation of facts and data.

“Any work we have done in the past is done on the back of the research grants we get – and has to be well hidden,” writes Phil Jones, a scientist working with the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in a newly released email. “I’ve discussed this with the main funder (U.S. Dept of Energy) in the past and they are happy about not releasing the original station data.”  &nbsp[emphasis mine]

“The trick may be to decide on the main message and use that to guid[e] what’s included and what is left out” of IPCC reports, writes Jonathan Overpeck, coordinating lead author for the IPCC’s most recent climate assessment.

The storm surrounding the leaked e-mails underlines the need for climate researchers to be more open about their research. But the researchers cannot be open. One University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit e-mail discusses not including too much “optimistic stuff” into studies about the extent of man-made global warming. To try to counter the e-mails, environmental public opinion expert Riley Dunlap of Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, says, “the timing of the (e-mail) release really does show the tactics that opponents of regulation at all costs pursue in the face of this meeting.”

American taxpayers, through “assessed” dues, account for 22% of the United Nation’s (U.N.) regular operating budget. China, for comparison, contributes 3% of the U.N. budget.

Beware of "C2ES" Climate Change Propaganda Group Retread

With the advent of super high speed internet and information sharing around the globe making it easier to expose nefarious groups and individuals that are spreading misinformation today, we are seeing the constant re-naming of those who are exposed to be propagandists/societal manipulators more frequently than ever before. This especially holds true in the Global Warming- which-is-now-Climate Change political propaganda arena.

It was recently quietly announced that a certain U.S. Climate change think tank had lost it’s main funding of charitable donations. The very same media manipulators who has previously deemed this group “a reputable think tank that sought solutions for climate change” seem to be a little miffed about how this particular group will now be getting their funding from big oil and green energy interests.  Notice how I wrote “a little miffed,” as opposed to furious there? The climate change scam supporters and pimps that faithfully promote the climate change biggest fraud to ever be perpetuated on the American public, will also be promoting this newly-named group 24/7, regardless of the fact that they are now being funded by big oil and green energy-government-connected- crony-capitalists. ( think Solyndra Light-Squared, and the rest of the entire solar/wind power-selling government-connected thieves)  

Meet the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, or C2ES

AFP Photo

C2ES is just a retread of one of the main originators of the then-titled Global Warming scam of the Clinton/Gore administration. C2ES was formerly known as the Pew Center on Global Climate Change. The President of the Clinton/Gore retread of the Pew Center on Global Climate Change, which is now being called C2ES is none other than Eileen Claussen. In her fluffed up bio on the leftist-propaganda website, The Huffington Post, we see just how manipulative the media can be, not in what they print, but in what they purposely choose to leave out: 

Ms. Claussen is the former Assistant Secretary of State for Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs.

Prior to joining the Department of State, Ms. Claussen served for three years as a Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Global Environmental Affairs at the National Security Council. She has also served as Chairman of the United Nations Multilateral Montreal Protocol Fund.

Ms. Claussen was Director of Atmospheric Programs at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, where she was responsible for activities related to the depletion of the ozone layer; Title IV of the Clean Air Act; and the EPA’s energy efficiency programs, including the Green Lights program and the Energy Star program.

Of note is that this Global Warming propagandist has held various positions in the Extreme Political Activists  group known as the EPA, which is 100% controlled by far left environmental radicals under the thumb of Lisa Jackson today.

What they fail to include in that Liberal libation posing as a “bio” is the fact that Ms. Claussen was a major plank in the Global Warming fraud initiated by the Clinton administration with a heavy does of Al Gore at the helm. Yes that Al Gore. The Huff-blow bio goes on to mention a bunch of fluffy awards Claussen received from her green energy bed-pals, along with the fact that she is a long time member of The Council of Foreign Relations, or CFR. Now that we have drug Ms. Claussen out of the Al Gore/Clinton closet for all to see, we also see that in an article by the AFP, Ms. Claussen now claims C2ES will be.. wait for it…an “Independent, non-partisan solution center.”  I can practically hear our readers laughing out loud when reading that ludicrous statement, no matter where they may be reading from.   If C2ES is in fact an independent, non-partisan solution center, then they surely will not be sucking the sludge from the same taxpayer-funded-money trough as the rest of the government crony-capitalists in big oil and green energy are doing today, right? Not quite.

In the C2ES coming-out-of-the-Al-Gore-closet-under-a-new-name announcement, Claussen named their three new “strategic partners” as Entergy, HP and Shell, adding that they had made “substantial multi-year funding commitments to the new organization.” ( except for the fact that this is not a new organization, but the same old Al Gore-type Global Warming, propaganda-spreading, puppet group that has changed names.)

Major contributors” were listed as the Alcoa Foundation, Bank of America, GE, The Energy Foundation, Duke Energy and last but certainly not least, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.  Pay attention folks, there is a new Climate Change propaganda group that isn’t really new at all, and it’s now called C2ES.   Brought to you by the Clinton/Al Gore administration and now funded by various government-connected crony-capitalists in the big oil and green energy sectors.  All under the guise of being “independent and non-partisan.”

 

2012 just can’t get here fast enough!

Mitt Romney: Flip-flop on Greenhouse Gasses [Video]

Perhaps he was for it before he was .. well you get the point. Back in June, Mitt was in New Hampshire on a campaign stop and told the group that clearly global warming was at least in part due to human causes.

I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that.

..

It’s important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may be significant contributors.

In this video of a campaign stop at Consol Energy in Virginia Mr. Romney had a different view.

Mitt Romney Flip-Flop on Global Warming

October 18th CNN Republican Debate [Full Video & Poll]

Photo: Antoine Taveneaux

Overview

At 8pm on Tuesday October 18th, CNN and the Western Republican Leadership Conference hested the most recent in a line of GOP Presidential debates.

Many of the early front-runners have struggled in the most recent debates. Mitt Romney has seen his once-formidable lead become second pace to a rotating cadre of new blood. Rick Perry stumbled in the last two debates and Michele Bachmann never recovered from her Gaurdasil/autism claim. Herman Cain now enjoys front-runner status and seemed to hold up to the increased scrutiny in the debate on October 11th.

Tuesday night’s debate promised to focus on Herman Cain and Mitt Romney – the two front-runners. Herman Cain defended his 9-9-9 plan using fruit analogies and Romney fumbled on everything from illegal immigration to Romneycare.

This was by far the most argumentative and least informative debate of the season. CNN’s Anderson Cooper was out to get the candidates to wrestle – informing voters wasn’t in CNN’s interest.

Jon Huntsman chose to boycott the debate due to Nevada’s primary scheduling battle with New Hampshire. Huntsman will instead hold a campaign event Tuesday morning.

Participants

Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum

Video/Streaming

The debate was held at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada and aired on CNN.

Herman Cain Negotiates With Terrrorists:
Wanting Cain to do well, this and the fruit exchange blew it. Listen as Herman Cain tells us that he wouldn’t negotiate with terrorists, except in certain cases. No negotiating with terrorists.. except?

and here’s the transcript:

Herman Cain, let me ask this to you. A few hours ago you were asked by Wolf Blitzer, if al Qaeda had an American soldier in captivity, and they demanded the release of everyone at Guantanamo Bay, would you release them? And you said, quote: “I can see myself authorizing that kind of a transfer. Can you explain?

HERMAN CAIN, PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: The rest of the statement was quite simply, you would have to consider the entire situation. But let me say this first, I would have a policy that we do not negotiate with terrorists. We have to lay that principle down first.

Now being that you have to look at each individual situation and consider all the facts. The point that I made about this particular situation is that I’m sure Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had to consider a lot of things before he made that.

So on the surface, I don’t think we can say he did the right thing or not. A responsible decision-maker would have considered everything.

Would 230,000 New Jobs Get Obama Reelected?

A trillion taxpayer dollars wasted here and another trillion or so wasted over there, and we still have unemployment over 9%.  So what is an incumbent President to do to get reelected under such dismal U/E numbers, considering that in all of modern U.S. electoral history no sitting President has ever been reelected with an U/E rate over 7.2% ? As the economists, bloggers and media mouthpieces  across the nation tell us every single day,  the 2012 election will be all about JOBS, JOBS, JOBS.  So what is a president to do to make it appear as if he is creating the number of new jobs that America needs to point to a real recovery of  the going-on-3-year-Obama-recession that we face today? 

The Obama administration has already added a very large number of taxpayer-funded employees to the government payroll in the last 3 years, ( 379k in Obama first year alone here)  which adds to the already skyrocketing yearly deficits, and decreases actual operating funds for other government programs, as common sense business calculations prove.  The Obama administration and the current crop of Liberal fake democrats in Congress today just can not seem to grasp the reality of these facts.  In keeping with the Liberal big government expansion of the last few years that has proven to be a huge part of our current economic problems of  finding and authorizing funding for such important programs as FEMA and transportation projects. This points directly at a serious cash flow problem within the U. S. government today, yet  Barack Obama seems to think that expanding the government even further will magically reduce our deficits.  That statement is proven by the latest big government expansion plot that was exposed in this article by Ben Howe over at RedState.com:  EPA Calls Compliance With Own Law “Absurd or Impossible” and Requests 230k new Employees.  We have to wonder how the Extreme Political Activists at the EPA came up with that number in  their recently demanded increase of taxpayer funded government employees. Why not just round it off and ask for a quarter of a million new government climate change propagandists and business-bullies posing as ” EPA regulators” and assorted pencil pushers?   Ben Howe also outlined how the EPA is actually breaking their own laws in trying to assist Obama’s plan to expand big government and increase it’s power over the people.. at taxpayers expense, of course. Government jobs do not increase government revenue, contrary to Liberal ideology where bigger government is their solution to everything.

As stated above, these new jobs would serve the purpose of enforcing all of the new regulations under the Clean Air Act  which was created by the EPA in 2009.  So why are courts involved?  Because the EPA is deliberately violating the very Clean Air Act they are intending to enforce.

Mr Howe went on to cite how The Institute for Energy Research used sections of the EPA’s very own court brief in showing how ludicrous this big government expansion truly is, and the EPA’s own stated reasons for it, which included the following very informative tidbits:

Sources needing operating permits would jump from 14,700 to 6.1 million as a result of application of Title V to greenhouse gases, a 400-fold increase.…Hiring the 230,000 full-time employees necessary to produce the 1.4 billion work hours required to address the actual increase in permitting functions would result in an increase in Title V administration costs of $21 billion per year. (emphasis mine)

There we see that during the current harsh economic times that forces households across America to cut back on their budget to make ends meet, Obama appointee Lisa Jackson and company at the EPA want to strap another 230k government paychecks onto the backs of the working class taxpaying citizens. Instead of accepting the obviously painful fact that our government must be cut back to stem the bleeding known as our $1.5 trillion dollar deficits that led to the first U.S credit downgrade in American history due to increasing our debt load, these lunatics want to expand big government exponentially.  Considering that democratic operative James Carville stated that the Democratic Party was set up for a 40-year dynasty after Obama was elected, we now see how big government expansion fits into their long-term plans to remain in power.  The Extreme Political Activists that Obama has installed into the EPA have been bypassing Congress for years and trying to create laws by passing new regulations, which a federal judge explained in detail from  The New Media Journal:

      Federal Judge Slaps Down EPA”s Attempt to Create law by Regulation

A federal court has sharply rebuked the EPA for exceeding its statutory authority. On May 26, 2011, Judge Richard Leon of the federal district court for the District of Columbia ruled that the agency’s regulatory process cannot trump a clear Congressional mandate, nor override judicial authority to compel EPA’s compliance with the law. (emphasis mine)

 

In summary we see that the EPA is caught making laws by regulation by over-stepping their authority more and more every day. The  Extreme Political Activists of today feel that they are somehow above the rule of law.  Now they want another 230,000 taxpayer funded employees to continue their march towards a Liberal Socialist agenda of crushing businesses, and stealing hard-earned wealth through over-regulation based on their phony climate change propaganda. When will the American public stand up to these tyrants and demand an end to the EPA? Not a stiff cut in taxpayer funding, but a complete end to this Marxist manipulation of our system of government by the Extreme Activists in the EPA ? You can also bet the bank that if Obama and Jackson manage to  pull this power-grab/snow-job of a  massive increase in taxpayer-funded EPA employees over on Congress, we will see liberals across the land using those 230k jobs to try to paint themselves as being the real job creation saviors of the middle class in America. Those soundbites might sound good for about a week, until the middle class citizens actually get the bill for it, which will come in the form of higher taxes once again.

 

People for the Ethical Treatment of .. Rocks

Appearing at a People Against Dangerous Environmentalism (PADE – pronounced ‘paid’) event, former Vice President Al Gore said that the spotted owl, delta smelt and albino salamander are to blame for the warming of the earth. The sudden proliferation of those protected species and the sudden over-reliance upon solar farms and windmills is creating a warming effect in the atmosphere directly over so-called “green states”.

Having recently pointed out that everything from breathing to cow farts were contributing to man-made global warming, Mr. Gore now explains how environmentalism has become a major contributor to the problem.

There are entire companies springing-up that promote the protection of certain animals and certain types of green energy. Some of them are OK, especially the ones I have a financial stake in. The others, however, are dangerous and we must shut them down – or take them over if that’s to my .. er .. our advantage.

Gore has recently railed against people that eat beef, farmers, people who walk on the left side of the sidewalk, take up two parking spots and “idiots that take the last cup of coffee without making a new pot”. “I can’t believe that everyone isn’t mad at those people. They’re wrong, all of them, and their killing our children – and also – grandma.”

Not everyone is falling in-line with Al’s version of climatology and he’s not taking it sitting down. In a recent conversation with Alex Bogusky, he paralleled climate skepticism to racism saying, “When racist comments would come up in the course of conversations, There came a time when people said, ‘Hey man, why do you talk that way? That’s wrong, I don’t go for that, so don’t talk that way around me. I just don’t believe that.”

Gore also recently visited a solar energy plant in the middle of a baron desert where he scolded the plant owners. After expressing his concerns for the safety of plant workers due to “attacks by spice worms”, Al Gore turned his focus to the company that built the plant.

This plant has irreversibly destroyed 13 cacti which were taking carbon out of the atmosphere and putting it in the sand – where it belongs. Instead of a few cactus, now we have all of you here breathing and stuff – which is bad – really, really bad.

When asked what humans should do, Mr. Gore responded, “Live naked in mud huts, of course – and eat rocks – because rocks don’t remove carbon from the atmosphere.” Joe Blow, president of PETR (people for the ethical treatment of rocks) could not be immediately reached for comment.

 

This entire article is satire, fiction, false, not real, made-up, imaginary. Well, Al Gore is real – unfortunately.

Mother Nature’s At The End Of Her Rope


All mother’s have had “one of those days!”  There’s no specific rhyme or reason for what is the “straw that broke the camel’s back”, but invariably it happens. It may be something so insignificant that everyone around her wonders if she’s lost her marbles. Rarely is it something of real importance that is the final tipping point.

No one really knows exactly what it was that tipped the scales for Mother Nature, but this past Tuesday she had “had it up to here!”,  as the saying goes!

Maybe it’s just that e the “little things” have been piling up for so long and she finally decided enough is enough.

For years she’s listened to to Al Gore as he rants about about “global warming“, “climate change“, or whatever they are calling it this month. She just rolls her eyes at his ridiculous drama. Just like any Mother, she can recognize a snow job a mile away! She knows Al isn’t concerned about what mankind is or isn’t doing to affect the future, and all he cares about is making money. It’s just another one of those gimmicks! As any mother knows, actions speak louder than words. ABC News let her in on the inconvenient truth about Al’s wasteful habits! In 2006 he spent more than 20 times the national average of on gas and electricity for his home. For a man who supposedly cares so much about her, he sure doesn’t mind being wasteful! Typical politician!

So we know it wasn’t anything to do with that argument that set her off on Tuesday.

Over the years, she’s had numerous “Come To Jesus Meetings” with a few people here and there, but she’s not really blown her stack.

Until this week!

She’s tried to give these people the famous “Mother Look”-  from time to time, as a reminder that they were getting close to crossing the line with her! You know the looks I’m talking about!. She never had to say a word- she said it all with the look in her eyes. They knew they were in trouble. They would settle down for a bit. They started getting out of line again, and the beginning of this year she sent several blizzards around the country to let everyone know she just needed some time to cool off!

While things really did not get any better, she had to decide how to approach things this time. She finally decided what to do. Fine, she thought- they think this global warming mess is so wonderful, let me just show them! So she sent this record breaking heat wave across the nation. That really should have done the trick! She covered the extreme cold and the extreme heat.

But evidently they needed a little bit more to get their attention.

That’s when she decided to give them a little bit of a warning in Denver. She threw a bit of a wrinkle in the earth’s surface Tuesday morning with a 5.3 magnitude earthquake in Colorado. Oh, I know… earthquakes happen every year, right? But they are not frequent in Denver.

But she realized that Denver wasn’t getting her message across.

The idea was to make sure she got everyone’s attention so they would all know she means business!

Since Denver’s earth shaking didn’t get enough national media attention, she decided to really shake things up. Tuesday afternoon, she hit the East Coast. It was a “business as usual” kind of day. Meetings were going on, a commercial was being shot, Congress was meeting, there was a press conference going on with some kind of “official Washington business”. She had everyone right where she wanted them. One thing she did not think about was how many people would have flashbacks of the worst day in modern American history when the affects of her temper tantrum were initially felt. She had a moment of regret immediately after her 5.8 magnitude earthquake rattled the entire East coast. She apologizes for not thinking about that, and realizes she should have stopped to think about the fact that we are just a couple of weeks or so from the 10 years anniversary of September 11, 2001! She realizes now that her timing wasn’t perfect, she just wants everyone to know she means business!

But as usual, one of the main people she wanted to get the attention of was not in the place she hoped would get her message loud and clear! She is kicking herself in the butt that she didn’t check her calendar, because President Cap and Trade was chillaxin’ on the green in Martha’s Vineyard, not in the nation’s capital! She really wanted to see his face, to see if he was going to listen to her this time! He is the leader of the one of the two most blessed nation’s on earth! Dang that Martha! She got to witness his reaction in private! But that’s OK, Mother Nature still got Washington’s attention! These politicians are so hard headed! Maybe this will make them stop and think before they start messing with her again!

Then again, maybe not.

As is typical, there’s always a smarty-pants in the bunch. She’s wondering if this jokester realizes he’s playing a dangerous game with a Mother who’s very close to the edge.

That’s ok. They may think this is something to laugh about now, but if they are not careful they may get more than they bargained for with Mother Nature! She really does seem to be at the end of her rope!

She’s thankful that hopefully she did get her message across to at least a few people. She’s overheard various discussions, and is quite proud to hear that some of them actually “get it.” Maybe the “Come To Jesus Meeting” helped after all!

One person commented that the founding father’s collectively rolled over in their grave, causing the earthquake. Just like any good mother, there’s room to credit the fathers as well. They’re all in this together!

She heard another comment that Jay Carney said it was the weight of Obama’s approval rate hitting the ground. She’s ok with that explanation. If he would only listen to reason, he would know his policies are not what will help matters! She’s tried to tell him she’s stored up plenty of energy, he just needs to take Sarah’s advise and DRILL BABY DRILL! But no, he just won’t listen! She’s tired of wasting her breath on him. He’ll figure it out, or he won’t. It’s his choice.

Someone else said that so many who voted for Obama in the last election changed sides, tipping the balance, causing the ground to give way. Like Larry the Cable Guy says, “that’s just funny there, I don’t care who ya are!”

But all joking aside- these are the ones that actually “got it” before she decided to shake things up a bit.

All the others who are not getting the point better tread lightly with her! She’s not afraid to get real drastic if the need arises! She’s serious when she’s said she’s had enough! I’m hoping to get the message out to everyone to watch out. WHATEVER you do, you DO NOT want to make her count to three! That very well may be disastrous for us all!

She’s already talked with Irene who’s making her way up the East Coast. She knows everyone is watching the news. She’s hoping she will not have to have Irene help her out with this one. She wonders, “Why, oh why won’t children listen and learn their lesson?!”

She’s trying to warn them- they best listen up! She really doesn’t want to have to ask Irene unleash her wind and rain! But if they keep pushing her……..

Who says a Mother’s not in control of herself?!

It’s what you call tough love! It’s not easy, but any good Mother knows that’s what it takes sometimes!

Taking the Red Pill: Believing Eyes & Liberal Lies

My four-year-old daughter loves these gummy vitamins we get at Costco.  They come in a huge jar with multiple colors.  She loves the red ones.  She begs me to pick a red one every morning.  But being a practical mother, I’m not about to go rooting around in a jar of vitamins just so my baby can have a red one.  She gets what comes out on the first tip.  Realizing she wasn’t going to get her wish of a red vitamin every time, my daughter devised a very mature plan: she would just pretend every gummy she got was red.  I think she’s pretended for so long that now she genuinely does see a red vitamin in her hand every day.  It doesn’t matter what color it really is.  If its orange, yellow, green – it’s still red.  She says, “This looks orange, but I don’t think its orange. Its really red”.

Today as we went through the typical red vitamin routine, it struck me that perhaps my daughter’s coping mechanism isn’t all that unique.  As I watch our President campaigning this week, I see him applying the very same techniques to his view of the economy and Americans in general.  Barack Obama has figured out a way to see the red vitamin every time he tips the jar.

This week we’ve heard sound bite after sound bite of the President lamenting the “slow” economy.  He has been making the typical Washington promises of better governing and more helpful programs, and asserting that he understands the plight of the typical American family right now.  Of course, those of us who actually are typical Americans understand that everything this administration has done over the last two and a half years has been antithetical to capitalism and prosperity.  A giant “healthcare” bill that few people wanted and even fewer actually read, disastrous financial reform that’s added new burdens to the business community, extending unemployment to nearly 2 years, a drilling moratorium, a war in Libya, prosecuting Arizona for prosecuting illegal immigration, a government takeover of GM/Chrysler, an 800 billion dollar stimulus package – all of these Obama-led “solutions” have guided us right into 9.6% unemployment (which we know is an artificially low figure thanks to government math), as high as 24% in the Black community.  Any working, thinking American can see that spending more money than we bring in is a recipe for disaster, and we are reaping the first harvests of that disaster currently.  However, Obama has amazingly been able to turn all that gray, garbage-colored mess into a nice, shiny red pill.  Its not QE1, QE2, or even QE3 that’s responsible for rapid inflation, it was the earthquake in Japan.  Its not the drilling moratorium that makes it impossible for us to produce our own oil that is causing sky-high gas prices, it was the oil spill in the Gulf last year.  Its not the 4 trillion in deficit spending his administration will have added by the end of its first term, it’s the House GOP spoilsports backed by infamous terrorists such as the Tea Party and their hobbit minions. Also, George Bush, George Bush, George Bush.  Obama has found a way to deny the reality of this poison pill and make his eyes see a healthy, red vitamin.

This isn’t a quality unique to our President.  Indeed, most liberals are steeped in LDS – not the church.  Liberal Denial Syndrome.  I should know, I once suffered from the same thing.  Its most disturbing symptom is the ability to ignore or deny glaring facts and information and replace them with good intentions and wishful thinking.  Despite continually rising unemployment numbers and foreclosures last year, Liberals still trumpeted the Summer of Recovery as proof Obama-ism was working.  Leaked emails from global warming researchers at East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (which gives recommendations to the UN regarding climate policy) have exposed global warming as a massive hoax based on doctored research and billions of dollars in financing.  The jig is up and yet the liberals are still supporting the UN’s call for a global Climate Change tax and business-killing Cap and Trade here at home.  The polar bear population has increased beyond endangered species parameters, but tell that to any liberal and they will passionately assert that oil and cow flatulence have all but destroyed their natural habitat and they are drowning one by one in the melting Arctic.  One needs only look as far as the IRS’s own website data to see that lower taxes bring increased revenue, but every liberal will tell you with absolutely no embarrassment that the only way to prosperity for more people is to increase taxes.

Provable facts mean nothing to the liberal suffering from LDS.  They mean nothing to Barrack Obama.  These are people who have spent a lifetime practicing up as down and down as up.  They want their good intentions and naïve utopian dreams to be enough to for them to be considered good people.  They want it so badly they are willing to make their eyes see what they wish so badly for in their hearts.  They choose to see the healthy red vitamin, while those of us rooted in reality know it’s really a cyanide pill.

Be Careful Who or What You Allow to Move You!

I read an article last week by Thomas Sowell which related to a day in Barack Obama’s not too distant past, when Barack was ‘moved’ (to tears) by a message from his pastor and friend, the sometimes ostentatious and very often racist Reverend Wright. I do not accurately know the message Rev. Wright shared with Barack that day—it might have been a great Bible-based spiritual message, so I will not speculate on what exactly ‘moved’ Barack to tears. I would like to know the exact context of the message was on that day. That information would make what I am about to write about more dead-on specific for our current President. Although I do not have that specific information, fortunately, there are plenty of other historical examples of citizenry being ‘moved’ by a message or messenger that does enable me to get my point across.


First, let me say that just because people are ‘moved’ by a message or an occasion it does not mean that the message or occasion that moved them was truthful, correct, or in their best interests.. A lot of people were ‘moved’ by the idiotic or evil political or social messages of people like Carl Marx, Charles Darwin and Adolf Hitler in past, very harsh lessons learned throughout history. Worse yet, a lot of people were ‘moved’ to tears of sadness and sorrow the day evil people such as Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Ivan the Terrible, Mao Tse Tung, Idi Amin, and Genghis Khan etc. etc. etc. died. Even though the previously mentioned murderous dictators were responsible for millions of heinous deaths, they were, and still are worshiped to an extent, even today.


Being ‘moved’ to the point of tears, being moved to a deep inner conviction and/or inner enlightenment by a message or teaching that someone gives happens all the time. The problem with these inner movements of conviction, enlightenment or revelation is that a lot of people get ‘moved’ by the wrong messages or deceiving messengers. (There is a difference between right and wrong, light and dark, and evil and good.) I believe some people teach or share wrong messages simply because they are ignorant of the facts. The man-made philosophies of evolution and global warming are excellent examples of just how misinformation and propaganda can change people’s perceptions of what is right and what is wrong. I know that many people believe this false global weather scam because they listen to the inaccurate and misleading teachings of teachers who they themselves have been misled or deceived. It is truly bewildering to me to think that there are a ‘whole lot of people’ on planet earth who are genuinely convinced (i.e. so environmentally moved) that they believe they are really helping ‘Mother Nature” or ‘Mother Earth’ when they push their unrealistic go-green philosophies. Now, I am in favor of being (somewhat) environmentally responsible. E. I do not believe it is an environmentally smart thing to randomly and haphazardly store radioactive waste in populated areas. I am against dumping known toxins, chemicals, poisons, etc. etc. into the world’s waterways. I believe we need to do what is feasibly (i.e. practically and economically) possible to protect our environment. However, I do believe environmentalists have gone way too far with their ‘save the planet” movement. Anyone with more brains than a piece of toast knows that windmills and solar panels will never, ever provide enough power to keep this country running. When environmentalists are ‘moved’ to the point that they consider cow farts and CO2 environmental hazards they are moving in the wrong direction!


It is amazing me how easily people are ‘moved’ into believing things that are so foolish. We all have seen examples of the many naively false or purposely deceiving teachers simply teaching what they teach for political or economic gain. Most of the whole ‘tree hugger, ‘save the whale’ and protect the reindeer” movement is based on exaggerated and misleading information,and yet millions still fall for this politically biased philosophy. Now, once again, I am not saying that we humans should not be concerned about our environment. The good Lord put us here as stewards and made us responsible for helping to keep planet earth clean—but there is only so much we can do. However, more environmental ‘damage’ is done in one day by a spewing volcano than all the coal plants in America have ever done. So let’s be realistic here. I simply do not believe that saving a rare river snail or creek minnow at the cost of millions of jobs is the correct way to do things today, but that is a different message for a different time. However, it does amaze me how many environmental wackos have more concern for helping a beached whale then they do for helping an innocent baby that is about to be aborted in its mother’s womb!


Back to my article topic:


I have read that Adolf Hitler was a great orator. I have read that his public speeches mesmerized many who listened to him. (I have to be honest. I have listened to his public speeches and they did nothing for me. Of course I am Irish, and a strong Christian man. I believe the Lord opens the eyes both spiritually and intellectually . But nevertheless, many Germans thought Adolf to be almost like god-like. The people of Germany were so ‘moved’ by the messages of Adolf that a vast majority of these well-educated and extremely civilized German people believed it was good to not only exterminate Jews, but anyone who was not of ‘pure’ German race! Sad isn’t it? A whole nation ‘moved’ to commit horrendous atrocities such as murdering millions of Jews by the message of one deranged man!


History has shown that time after time, entire races of people or entire nations have been so moved by a message or philosophical teaching that it led to the death or serious decay of their citizenry. America went through this during our Civil War. Some American citizens were so ‘moved’ by the issue of slavery that they were willing to kill (sometimes even their own family members) just so they could have the ‘right’ to own people!


America went through another trying time in the sixties. A whole generation of young people decided that peace and love (not war and morality) were what was right for America. Thousands of people (mostly college kids and their liberal teachers) began protesting the Vietnam War. The people shouted, “Violence is not the way” and “War never solved anything” as they illegally and violently took over many of America’s larger college campuses. (By the way, I need to remind these ‘war never solved anything’ people that I know for a fact that war defeated Communism, Nazism, Fascism, and slavery, and that American warriors are presently working on wiping out crazy Islamic fundamentalists who use innocent women and children as bomb carriers.)


While these anti-war protests of the sixties were going on, this same culture of young people decided it was best for America if people were more ‘open’ in their sexual behaviors and drug usage. So this generation of young people decided to push a philosophy that taught that it was good to freely and openly express one’s sexual behaviors. An entire nation of young people was ‘moved’ by the ‘message’ of free love, peace not war, and tripping out on acid as a way to really discovers one’s “inner self.”. Our culture was changed by this whole ‘hippie love’, do drug movement,and it was not necessarily a good change! Fifty years later, look where this movement has gotten us. America is a largely doped up, sexually permissive society. There are over fifty different types of sexually transmitted diseases floating around in America these days. This ‘free love’ movement produced another dilemma; unwanted pregnancies. So free loving liberals decided America needed a law which would make it ‘legal’ to eliminate the unnecessary side-effects (i.e. babies in wombs) of sexually promiscuous people. People were so ‘moved’ by the message of free love (i.e. I will use my body as I choose) that they used this same reasoning while arguing that it should be the pregnant woman’s choice to decide if she wants to kill or keep the baby inside her womb. How dark is a society when it legally allows innocent babies to be murdered in their mother’s womb? What kind of righteous movement is that? We are throwing aborted babies in garbage cans like they are simply part of the daily trash. Yeah right, ‘free love’ and legalized abortions; those are just the kind of things I want to be moved to support. Not!


The peace/love movement of the sixties sounded real nice—but it did not turn out real nice. An entire nation of people were ‘moved’ by the peace/free love/do drugs music of the sixties. You know the saying; “ If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” America is in such a horrendous drug epidemic that I believe the only Someone who can restore this country is the good Lord Himself when He returns for his second coming. (The next time Jesus comes to planet earth he comes as a judging/avenging lion and not an innocent lamb. Paraphrased: Jesus is going to do some serious righteous ‘butt kicking’ the next time he shows up on planet earth.)


Famous leaders like Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, Fidel Castro, Kim Sung, Hideki Tojo, Leopold II, etc. etc. many times deceived not only other nations into thinking their political agendas were good, but also their own people. The political philosophies of these ruthless, wicked dictators ‘moved’ the people to point of assisting these evil rulers in viciously torturing and murdering millions upon millions of innocent people.


We all need to be very, very careful that the ‘movement’ our heart is following or leaning towards is not foolishness or worse yet, simply evil. The good Lord created humans with emotions and these same emotions came with a free will. No one can use words to make us do something we really do not want to do, unless they are heavily disguised words to hide theie true meaning, such as “Social Justice.” Unfortunately, way too many people allow their free will to be controlled by their emotions. Way too many people listen to what teachers or leaders are telling them without having all the facts before them, or worse yet, not even be willing to look at the facts! (A religious pastor can be taught how to be a great evangelist. Like a good actor, he or she can go to school and learn how to fire up and deceive people with words. As we now know, great orators or religious motivators like Adolf Hitler or Osama Bin laden do not necessarily make for great human beings.)


A lot of other people listen to what political, religious, social or economical teachers tell them knowing that what they are being told is wrong, but they continue to listen anyways because an inner evil part of them likes what they are hearing. Racist skin-head preachers or promoters are a good example of this. A lot of their ‘followers’ are people who like what these (mostly anti-black people) racist skin-head leaders teach simply because the person listening to them already hates minorities. So these new followers use the racist movement of groups like the skin-head as justification for hating minorities. After all there is power in numbers. A movement,right or wrong, does not need a lot of followers to become a movement. The wacko religious cult known as Heaven’s Gate moved (with its message) 38 people to commit suicide so they supposedly could catch a comet ride to heaven. What is scary about a lot of these religious and political movements is that it is hard to get out once you get in. It is very, very difficult to convince liberals who have been moved by a deceiving socialistic message that socialism does not work. It is hard to convince religious people who get moved by a cult religious teacher that they are on the wrong path of ‘light.’ As with the Heaven’s Gate’s followers, once people move in a certain direction it is very, very difficult to get them to back-up. So, please be careful what you get moved about.


It is difficult for me to understand why intelligent, non-doped up or non-drunk people are moved by messages or philosophies that are obviously wrong or just plain evil. It saddens me that there is a group of hateful, evil people out there in America who did belong, and still belong to groups who’s sole purpose is to try to eliminate (innocent) fellow Americans of minority races! What ‘moves’ people to even listen to idiots like this? However, it happens all the time!


I guess I am just too logical, practical and analytical to fall for these self-centered, evil, selfish things. (Although I am quite aware that peer pressure is a very powerful influence in some people’s lives.) I challenge the movement that promotes hating people because of their skin color. Hey, all you idiotic skin-head types need to read the part of the American constitution which states that the good Lord created all people equal, although in your case he did not create people with the same intelligence! (I say that sarcastically. I do not want people who follow stupid, evil promoters of racism to use stupidity as justification for your evil philosophies.)


I also challenge those people of ‘science’ who promote a movement which time after time attempts to debunk the wisdom of God. Many times people who ‘get intelligence’, (through supposed places of ‘higher learning’) actually become dumber than they were before they got educated. It always amazes me how some people, who once they get educated suddenly think they are smarter than The One who created all things. You secular geniuses cannot even figure out how light works, and yet you believe you have the wisdom to explain the deep complexities of this universe. You guys do not have a clue on the diverse intricacies of a simple cell, and yet you spew out your idiotic movement that all life happened by random chance! Some would say that the Theory of Evolution is simply science fiction at its best. And in spite of the fact that this idiotic ‘movement’ is ridiculously idiotic—and mathematically impossible—millions follow this movement like lemmings headed to the cliff. So I have a question for all those self-proclaimed academics
out there: “ Just how did all those glaciers melt on planet earth a few thousand years ago? Were there too many tepee factories around back then? ”
Who’s “ carbon footprint ” can you blame that episode in world history and evolution on ?


So be careful people, on just who or what you allow to shape your perceptions of what is right and what is wrong today. Some people are trained to manipulate you to go against what you know is the right thing to believe in, today in America. The future of America depends of all of us to seek the truth on our own, and that must include denouncing what anti-American propagandists with an agenda are telling us. The truth, and only the truth shall set you free.
