America, You Asked For It!

Congressmen vacation on your dime!

Twenty Congressmen and Congresswomen, under the watchful eye of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), took so many staff and family members with them to the Global Warming Climate Change conference in Copenhagen last month.  The delegation, which included Democrats and Republicans, was chosen by Pelosi.

Though she promised to “drain the swamp” in the US House, Pelosi refuses to answer any questions regarding the costs of the trip.  Costs that you, the American taxpayer, will bear.

Jack Cafferty on CNN condemns Pelosi on the liberal network, referring to her as a “horrible woman”.

Did Obama Single-Handedly Defeat Global Warming in Denmark?

Under the blanket of a blinding blizzard, negotiators in Copenhagen charge ahead with efforts to forge an international agreement that will stem the tide of what they now call “Climate Change.” (Formerly known as Global Warming.)  The winter storm wasn’t all these Global Warming alarmists were ignoring as they donned coats, hats, scarves and gloves to demand action that they believe will lower temperatures.

Protesters, “green” organizations, and worst of all, delegates representing member states of the UN continued to ignore the words of leading scientists that have led some to call “Climate Change” the “worst scientific scandal of our generation.”

It’s understandable the nutcase treehuggers who hold no real job didn’t notice that the whole idea of man-made climate change is a fabricated hoax. They spend their entire lives protesting at some conference for some left wing cause or another.  The “green” organizations know the science is junk.  They’ve always known it.  They use it to convince citizens of the world that cow farts, SUVs, and even our own breathing are turning the Earth into a boiling cauldron, not because of some burning desire to save the world, but to extort money from those who swallow their left-wing line and those who don’t.

The extortion from sympathizers, believers, and followers comes in the form of donations to the left-wing organizations that support the professional protesters who pass through this life throwing rocks, breaking windows, and turning over cars in the street.  Those who don’t run for their lives when the radical left nut jobs play Chicken Little with issues like Global Warming…uh…I mean Climate Change…don’t voluntarily hand over their hard earned cash to the liberal loons so the extortion takes a little more effort where they’re concerned.  These involuntary victims of the leftist liberals are stripped of their worldly possessions for the good of the cause by taxation and/or government imposed mandates.

Those taxes and mandates were exactly what the shivering ambassadors from 193 countries sought to agree on at Copenhagen.  But negotiators seemed stymied, unable to reach an agreement as rich countries (those who would be required to pay said taxes) didn’t seem to want to part with as much of their wealth as poorer countries (those who would benefit from yet another liberal scheme to redistribute wealth) planned to take.  Then, US President Barack Obama arrived in the winter wonderland anomaly.

Believers and extortionists can now claim Obama’s powers of persuasion, though no longer capable of hypnotizing a majority of Americans, worked wonders on the chilly conference representatives’ ability to compromise.  With a flurry of last minute arm twisting, which included the President breaking protocol by bursting into a meeting of Chinese, Brazilian, Indian and South African leaders to demand they not negotiate in secret (funny how he doesn’t hold Democratic Senators to that standard on health care), the President forged an agreement between the US and those four countries that permitted him yet another opportunity to describe his accomplishment with his favorite adjective.

If Global Warming/Climate Change/[whatever the next name for the nonexistent threat propagated by the left] is real, the results of his “unprecedented” accomplishment must have been instantaneous, because the President had to leave Denmark before the agreement could be considered by the full conference in order to beat another blinding snowstorm descending on Washington, DC.

One can only imagine what weather conditions would have befallen the US capitol if Obama had failed in his quest to get something on paper before he left Copenhagen.  Air conditioning systems would likely be running full blast in the capitol city, creating an “unprecedented” December demand on coal-fired power plants to cool the sultry confines inside the beltway.  Imagine the “unprecedented” levels of CO2 that would have been emitted by DC denizens’ efforts to combat what would almost certainly have been an “unprecedented” heat wave this weekend. So be sure to email the White House and thank the President as you’re shoveling the snow from your driveway this weekend.

Global Warming/Climate Change/[whatever the radical left wants to call it this week] is nowhere to be found this weekend, thanks to the “unprecedented” pretentiousness of our President!

Of course, it’s more likely the leaked CRU emails we’ve read about really did point to a cover up by the scientific community to help guarantee a continually growing flow of research dollars help them manufacture more junk science and there was no more truth to Global Warming than to Al Gore’s claim that he invented the internet.

Obama using war, climate change, & jobs as distraction for health care

by John Allison III

After spending the summer and fall trying to cram an unwanted government takeover of the US health care system down the throats of the American people, he’s finally managed to get a bill passed in the House and its companion bill debated on the floor of the Senate.  Now’s the time most would expect a final push, a strategic surge, a call on the very reserves of his energy and effort, to cross the finish line with legislation that could ultimately define his presidency.

But, instead of a network news health care infomercial starring the President, he decided to shift gears this week.  Suddenly he’s stepped forward with a response to General McChrystal’s request for more troops in Afghanistan, decided to attend the climate change conference in Copenhagen, and Thursday held a “jobs summit” at the White House. Is he counting his chickens before they hatch?  Does he believe he has this battle won, so he’s already tackling the next challenge?  It’s just hard to imagine after he’s focused on little else for months now, that suddenly the issue no longer draws his attention.

Of course, it could be by design.  All smoke and mirrors to confuse and confound.

Sort of like Nancy Pelosi’s Saturday at midnight vote to pass her vision of “reform” that places our health care decisions in the hands of government bureaucrats, or Harry Reid’s choice to hold the vote to move his bill forward on the Saturday night before Thanksgiving, President Obama is now hoping to take the eye of the American taxpayer off the ball in the last seconds of the game.

His jobs summit isn’t so much about jobs, but it’s just one part of a plan designed to turn the heads of the majority of voters who oppose his vision for the health care system, distracting them long enough to let the bill squeeze through before they realize it.

Think about it…three months after McChrystal issued his request for 40,000 troops, three months of facing harsh criticism for “dithering” while American troops twisted in the wind, he comes forth with a decision that sends the health care story to the inside pages of newspapers across the country.  Just one month after we heard the President wouldn’t be attending the climate conference in Copenhagen, Obama has suddenly done a 180 and decided not only to  attend but to promise a 17% cut in US carbon emissions by 2020.  And now the “jobs summit.”

Don’t be surprised to see the front page too crowded by all these announcements to adequately cover the health care debate over the next couple of weeks.  Look for the mainstream media to fall in line and lead with these stories and others to give cover to Democratic Senators trying to tow their party line while their constituents are distracted.

Obama and his Democratic lackeys in the Senate know Americans don’t trust the government to administer the health care system, but THEY DON’T CARE!  In their minds, we’re incapable of knowing what’s best for us.

They’re creating a diversion, hoping to distract us and force us to swallow their “reform.”

Don’t take your eyes off the health care debate until it’s dead!

British Lord Says One-World-Gov’t Goal of Climate Change Treaty

from ResistNet.com

Keynote speaker Lord Christopher Monckton, former science adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, gave a scathing and lengthy presentation, complete with detailed charts, graphs, facts, and figures which culminated in the utter decimation of both the pop culture concept of global warming and the credible threat of any significant anthropomorphic climate change.

Here were Monckton’s closing remarks, as dictated from my audio recording:

At [the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in] Copenhagen, this December, weeks away, a treaty will be signed. Your president will sign it. Most of the third world countries will sign it, because they think they’re going to get money out of it. Most of the left-wing regime from the European Union will rubber stamp it. Virtually nobody won’t sign it.

I read that treaty. And what it says is this, that a world government is going to be created. The word “government” actually appears as the first of three purposes of the new entity. The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to third world countries, in satisfaction of what is called, coyly, “climate debt” – because we’ve been burning CO2 and they haven’t. We’ve been screwing up the climate and they haven’t. And the third purpose of this new entity, this government, is enforcement.
