Robert Gibbs on Climate Change Science

Once again the arrogance of the White House is well represented by Robert Gibbs as he responds to a question on the “science” of global warming from Fox News’ Major Garrett. Despite over 30,000 scientists worldwide going on record as refuting the science that climate change is caused directly by humans, Mr. Gibbs dismisses the comment saying,  “there is no real scientific basis for dispute of this.” 

Also pay attention to his comments referring to Obama’s participation and his goal. Gibbs states that Obama is going to Copenhagen to try to “use this visit to get us to the point of a deal”. There is no deal that can come out of Copenhagen that will be good for the U.S. or our sovereignty. Watch the exchange below:

In light of Climategate and all the opposition to the global warming scare, you would think that it might be time to call for an open dialogue with both sides of the scientific community to determine the best course of action. Except of course, Al Gore has weighed in and also claims that the science is settled.

Lies, lies and more lies. This is a power grab that has been underway since the sixties beginning with The Club of Rome. It is the key to setting up the U.N. to provide the backbone of global governance.

Read the quotes of the leaders of this movement. See the quotes here: http://bit.ly/44Up7e  

They have a plan and they are executing. The Copenhagen Treaty conference could be the tipping point. The Climategate emails are the break the good guys need to show this scam for what it is. We must let our leaders know that we do not want them to sign us on to a treaty that will destroy our economy and our sovereignty especially when it is based on science that is in serious question. The only eminent threat is global governance and empowering the U.N. with more control of world affairs.

Wake up, America – your future is at stake. Our sovereign nation and your freedom hangs in the balance.

Restore our Republic, Reject Green Lies, Reject the Copenhagen Treaty!

“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government — lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.” — Patrick Henry 

Climate Lies Designed to Usurp our Freedom

The truth is starting leak out. Climate change is a scam. So you ask… Why? Why would anyone want to create such a global scare? As usual it’s the same old story – money and power. The Green Movement has become the new religion of the “global elite”. Climate change is the tool that they will use to “create the crisis” that could trigger the end of our country. They will use fear, manipulation of the food supply, energy and the healthcare system to achieve their objective; create a global government. Make no mistake this is an international conspiracy!

In a recent Wall Street Journal Op/Ed about the upcoming Copenhagen conference, UN Secretary Ban Ki-Moon wrote:

” All agree that climate change is an existential threat to humankind. … The issues are complex, affecting everything from national economies to individual lifestyles. They involve political trade-offs and commitments of resources no leader can undertake lightly. … Yet the elements of a deal are on the table. All we require to put them in place is political will. We need to step back from narrow national interest and engage in frank and constructive discussion in a spirit of global common cause”.

First, all do not agree that its’ real much less an eminent threat to the world. Also read what is said closely and it is easy to see the real picture. The goal is a “global common cause”. So what does that mean? Again read carefully. It involves “political trade-offs”, “commitments of resources”, and “the need to step back from narrow national interests”. If you pay attention it is pretty easy to decipher, the plan calls for a worldwide social re-engineering that will lead to  world government.

Remember this what the climate change side is saying:

Quote from the Club of Rome: “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill….All these dangers are caused by human intervention….and thus the “real enemy, then, is humanity itself….believe humanity requires a common motivation, namely a common adversary in order to realize world government. It does not matter if this common enemy is “a real one or….one invented for the purpose.” (The Club of Rome is an elitist think tank founded in 1968 and dedicated to limiting growth of the industrialized nations worldwide.)

Quote by Maurice Strong, a primary power behind UN throne: “Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?” (He was the first Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Maurice Strong has played a major role is globalizing the environmental movement. After reading the preceding quote his motives should scare the hell out of you!)

Next you have got to watch this Congressional testimony by Al Gore, who gives new meaning to the words, “pompous ass” while managing to totally avoid answering the question. By the way, it should be lost on anyone tht Mr. Gore is a big, fat hypocrite. Not only is he getting rich off this scam, he also has a enormous personl carbon footprint. I guess it is the old “do as I asy not as I do” thing; after all his like a superhero saving the planet and all. (excuse me while I hurl)

There is good news though, it appears a break through in public thinking is beginning to occur. Support for Cap & Trade legislation is sliding. Globally there are more and more critics stepping forward to challenge the science. 

On March 4, 2008 , scientists and researchers in climate and related fields, economists, policymakers, and business leaders, assembled at Times Square, in New York City, to participate in the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change. Those in attendance declared that global warming was not a global crisis.

And of course, in the last 10 days we have “Climategate” – hacked emails from Britain’s Climate Research Unit at East Anglia. Here are some excerpts from these emails:

Manipulation of evidence: “I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline”.

Private doubts about whether the world really is heating up:  “The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t. The CERES data published in the August BAMS 09 supplement on 2008 shows there should be even more warming: but the data are surely wrong. Our observing system is inadequate”.

Suppression of evidence: “Can you delete any emails you may have had with Keith re AR4? Keith will do likewise. He’s not in at the moment – minor family crisis. Can you also email Gene and get him to do the same? I don’t have his new email address. We will be getting Caspar to do likewise”.

Quote by Michael Oppenheimer, major environmentalist: “The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can’t let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization, we have in the US. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are.”

Quote by Emma Brindal, a climate justice campaigner coordinator for Friends of the Earth: “A climate change response must have at its heart a redistribution of wealth and resources.”

Wake up, America! This is a global scam. Our sovereignty, our economy and our futures are at stake! Contact your elected representatives and The White House – tell them; No Cap & Trade, No Treaties on Climate Change, No deals in Copenhagen and no  subsidies to foreign governments (carbon reparations) – we do not owe them and we can not afford them!

Restore the Republic, Reject Green Lies!

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free”.  – Ronald Reagan

Obama + Copenhagen= UN Global Governance!

 Here are links to a couple of excellent videos which continue to breakdown the lies regarding Climate Change and the UN’s hidden agenda to use it as a means to drive their global goveranc/social justice objectives. In the first video, Lord Christopher Monckton, a noted climate change skeptic, gave a presentation at Bethel University in St. Paul, MN and describes the Copenhagen plan. The second is a trailer for a new anti climate change video called, “Climate Chains”. Last but not least the trailer for; “Not Evil, Just Wrong” a feature length documentary which shows how extreme environmentalism is damaging the lives of vulnerable people with the campaign on Global Warming.

Climate Chains:  http://vimeo.com/7030026

Educate yourself, this is a fight for freedom, liberty and American sovereignty! Restore the Republic, Reject the Climate Change Agenda of Global Governance!

Quote by Al Gore, former vice president: “I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis.”

Quote by Stephen Schneider, Stanford Univ., environmentalist: “That, of course, entails getting loads of media coverage. So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have.”

Quote by Christine Stewart, former Canadian Environment Minister: “No matter if the science is all phoney, there are collateral environmental benefits…. climate change [provides] the greatest chance to bring about justice and equality in the world.”

Quote by Timoth Wirth, U.S./UN functionary, former elected Democrat: “We’ve got to ride the global-warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic policy and environmental policy.”

Quote by Richard Benedik, former U.S./UN bureaucrat: “A global climate treaty must be implemented even if there is no scientific evidence to back the greenhouse effect.”

The Cow Fart Tax……. The next battle in the fight to curb global warming….. Really!

Farting cows and other livestock are a major source of methane emissions into the atmosphere. As a result the EPA is looking for ways to address this greenhouse gas problem. So you won’t be surprised to find out that one of the ways they are considering addressing the problem is through a tax. While I am not sure how this will reduce the gases legislation to impose the tax is working its’ way through a House committee. 

According to Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-WI., the ranking member of the House Select Committee for Energy Independence and Global Warming, if this bill becomes law it could have a devastating impact on agribusiness. In the absence of a technology based solution for livestock methane emissions the congressman said, “I don’t know if we’re supposed to develop the technology to strap a catalytic converter on the back of a cow”, since a capture and convert strategy would be a more earth friendly solution than a tax, if global warming wasn’t a myth in the first place. (Please see my 4 part series on The Waxman-Markey Climate Change Bill)

In case you are wondering about the cost of livestock farts, the EPA proposal breaks it down like this, $175 a year on every head of dairy cattle in the United States, $80 for beef cattle and $20 per head of hogs. In a recent blog I joked about a methane tax because it seemed so ridiculous, turns out we now live in theater of the absurd. If this bill passes hamburger will replace steak as a luxury item and the price of food will keep going up. Amazing how every “green” initiative has a negative effect on the price of something. President Obama may have promised income tax cuts for 95% of Americans but by the time he is done with his social reengineering, the economy will be in shambles and inflation will be through the roof. Then everyone will wish for the good old days of higher income tax. By the way vegans beware – beans are next! Read more at:

The Climate Change Scam – Quotes from the Idiot Left

Below are quotes from powerful, rich, religious, famous and fanatical environmentalists intent on keeping “the populace alarmed” to further their own personal and selfish goals. That goal is “Global Governance” by way of the U.N. These elitists believe they know what is best for us and they are willing to lie to us, manipulate the science, the media and our children to achieve their objectives.

Today the Green Movement is the new religion that the world’s elite have created to move their agenda forward. This is being done under the banner of saving the planet, social justice and redistribution of wealth while retaining the power for themselves.

The threat to the world is not man-made global warming or climate change. The threat to the world, is the groups of fanatics who want to impose their values and desires on others. The people below represent such a group.

Fasten your seat belts, these quotes range from frightening to ridiculous:

Quote from Club of Rome: “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill….All these dangers are caused by human intervention….and thus the “real enemy, then, is humanity itself….believe humanity requires a common motivation, namely a common adversary in order to realize world government. It does not matter if this common enemy is “a real one or….one invented for the purpose.”

Quote by Al Gore, former vice president: “Adopting a central organizing principle means embarking on an all-out effort to use every policy and program, every law and institution, to halt the destruction of the environment.”

Quote by Maurice Strong, a primary power behind UN throne: “Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?”

Quote by Jeffery Sachs, Columbia University, Director of The Earth Institute: “Obama is already setting a new historic course by reorienting the economy from private consumption to public investments…free-market pundits bemoan the evident intention of Obama and team to ‘tell us what kind of car to drive’. Yet that is exactly what they intend to do…and rightly so. Free-market ideology is an anachronism in an era of climate change.”

Quote by Emma Brindal, a climate justice campaigner coordinator for Friends of the Earth: “A climate change response must have at its heart a redistribution of wealth and resources.”

Quote by David Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!: “We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects. We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of acres of presently settled land.”

Quote by Louis Proyect, Columbia University: “The answer to global warming is in the abolition of private property and production for human need. A socialist world would place an enormous priority on alternative energy sources. This is what ecologically-minded socialists have been exploring for quite some time now.” 

Quote by Michael Oppenheimer, major environmentalist: “The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can’t let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization, we have in the US. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are.”

Quote by Barack Obama, “All across the world, in every kind of environment and region known to man, increasingly dangerous weather patterns and devastating storms are abruptly putting an end to the long-running debate over whether or not climate change is real. Not only is it real, it’s here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster”.

Quote by David Graber, scientist U.S. Nat’l Park Services: “We have become a plague upon ourselves and upon the Earth. It is cosmically unlikely that the developed world will choose to end its orgy of fossil energy consumption, and the Third World its suicidal consumption of landscape. Until such time as Homo Sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along.”

Quote by Sir John Houghton, first chairman of IPCC: “Unless we announce disasters, no one will listen.”

Quote by Al Gore, former vice president: “I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis.”

Quote by Stephen Schneider, Stanford Univ., environmentalist: “That, of course, entails getting loads of media coverage. So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have.”

Quote by Amory Lovins, scientist, Rocky Mountain Institute: “Complex technology of any sort is an assault on human dignity. It would be little short of disastrous for us to discover a source of clean, cheap, abundant energy, because of what we might do with it.”

Quote by Paul Ehrlich, professor, Stanford University: “Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun.”

Quote by Ted Turner, billionaire, founder of CNN and major UN donor: “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.”

Quote by Ted Turner, billionaire, founder of CNN and major UN donor: ‘Global warming’ will kill most of us, and turn the rest of us into cannibals.”

Quote by Jason Warmis, long-time activist, environmentalist, UN advocate: If we are to stop CO2 growth, then we have to cut present world energy use by 80%, now. Our young people know the fate of the world is in their hands and they will make the sacrifices to make this happen. They will give up their iPods, cell phones, cars, computers, DVD players, video games, and the Internet to achieve an 80% cut, and more if necessary – this is not an issue for themselves, it’s an issue of saving the world for our betters, nature. Our young people will not fail us; they will lead the way as the last crucible of change and hope.

Quote by Ross Gelbsan, former journalist: “Not only do journalists not have a responsibility to report what skeptical scientists have to say about global warming. They have a responsibility not to report what these scientists say.”

Quote by Charles Alexander, Time Magazine science editor: “I would freely admit that on [global warming] we have crossed the boundary from news reporting to advocacy.”

Quote by Christine Stewart, former Canadian Environment Minister: “No matter if the science is all phoney, there are collateral environmental benefits…. climate change [provides] the greatest chance to bring about justice and equality in the world.”

Quote by Timoth Wirth, U.S./UN functionary, former elected Democrat: “We’ve got to ride the global-warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic policy and environmental policy.”

Quote by Richard Benedik, former U.S./UN bureaucrat: “A global climate treaty must be implemented even if there is no scientific evidence to back the greenhouse effect.”

Quote by Chris Folland of UK Meteorological Office: “The data don’t matter. We’re not basing our recommendations [for reductions in carbon dioxide emissions] upon the data. We’re basing them upon the climate models.”

Quote by Noel Brown, UN official: “Entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000. Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of “eco-refugees,” threatening political chaos.” (Editor: Yes, he meant the year 2000.)

Quote by Harry Reid, Democrat, U.S. Senate majority leader: “Coal makes us sick. Oil makes us sick. It’s global warming. It’s ruining our country. It’s ruining our world.”

Quote by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.: “Large-scale hog producers are a greater threat to the United States and U.S. democracy than Osama bin Laden and his terrorist network.”

Quote by Osama bin Laden, terrorist leader behind 9/11 plot & attacks: “In fact, the life of all mankind is in danger because of global warming resulting to a large degree from the emissions of the factories of the major corporations; yet despite that, the representative of these corporations in the White House insists on not observing the Kyoto accord, with the knowledge that the statistics speak of the death and displacement of millions of human beings because of global warming, especially in Africa.”

Quote by David Frame, climate modeler, Oxford University: “Rather than seeing models as describing literal truth, we ought to see them as convenient fictions which try to provide something useful.”

Quote from Monika Kopacz, atmospheric scientist: “It is no secret that a lot of climate-change research is subject to opinion, that climate models sometimes disagree even on the signs of the future changes (e.g. drier vs. wetter future climate). The problem is, only sensational exaggeration makes the kind of story that will get politicians’ — and readers’ — attention. So, yes, climate scientists might exaggerate, but in today’s world, this is the only way to assure any political action and thus more federal financing to reduce the scientific uncertainty.”

Quote by Thomas Lovejoy, scientist, Smithsonian Institution: “The planet is about to break out with fever, indeed it may already have, and we [human beings] are the disease. We should be at war with ourselves and our lifestyles.”

Quote by Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury: “We must support government coercion over enforcing international protocols and speed limits on motorways if we want the global economy not to collapse and millions, billions of people to die.”

Quote by Bill Maher, supposedly a comedian: “Failing to warn the citizens of a looming weapon of mass destruction- and that’s what global warming is- in order to protect oil company profits, well, that fits for me the definition of treason.”

Quote by David Suzuki, celebrity scientist on politicians ignoring climate alarmists: “What I would challenge you to do is to put a lot of effort into trying to see whether there’s a legal way of throwing our so-called leaders into jail because what they’re doing is a criminal act.”

Quote by James Hansen, prominent NASA climate scientist: “…chief executives of large fossil fuel companies to [should] be put on trial for high crimes against humanity and nature; [Hansen] accusing them of actively spreading doubt about global warming in the same way that tobacco companies blurred the links between smoking and cancer.

Quote by David Roberts, journalist Grist Magazine: “When we’ve finally gotten serious about global warming, when the impacts are really hitting us and we’re in a full worldwide scramble to minimize the damage, we should have war crimes trials for these bastards (global warming skeptics) — some sort of climate Nuremberg.” 

Quote by Robert Muller, UN Assistant Secretary General: “In my view, after fifty years of service in the United National system, I perceive the utmost urgency and absolute necessity for proper Earth government. There is no shadow of a doubt that the present political and economic systems are no longer appropriate and will lead to the end of life evolution on this planet. We must therefore absolutely and urgently look for new ways.”

Unbelievable quotes aren’t they? The plan is to do and say anything to further the cause. The real objective is social reengineering not saving the planet. It is time to see this, for what it is. Climate change is a giant money making, power grabbing scam for the elite – and YOU are the victim. If the elite and the U.N. have their way, the America we grew up in will be what becomes extinct! Wake Up! Time is running out. Do your own research, the truth is out there – this is a scam.

Restore the Republic, Reject the Climate Change Scam of the Progressive Left!

 

BBC Report – What happened to Global Warming?

“All across the world, in every kind of environment and region known to man, increasingly dangerous weather patterns and devastating storms are abruptly putting an end to the long-running debate over whether or not climate change is real. Not only is it real, it’s here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster”. – Barack Obama

Not long ago, the President was busy telling us the debate about climate change was over and it was real. All while leading scientists from around the world tried unsuccessfully to get the U.N. or anyone in the media to listen to their side of the argument – that Climate Change was a cyclical event that has been happening forever. As new evidence continues to surface – will anyone listen before it is too late? We all need to face the ugly truth – Global Warming and the impending global disaster are a scam to create a power grab for the socialist forces that want to “fundamentally transform America”. This does not mean that sound environmental stewardship isn’t something we should strive for. However it does mean that we should not get suckered into sacrificing our national sovereignty, freedom, liberty, capitalism and the American way of life for the false religion of the green movement and their idea of social justice. That is why THEY are in such a rush to pass all this crap! They are afraid you will find out the truth before their plan has been launched. NO MORE CHANGE! It is time to slow down and thoughtfully debate this issue.

It is time to wake up! We need to say NO, to the Waxman Markey Climate Change Bill and any other form of Tax and Cap. This has the same disasterous consequences as Healthcare Reform.

Here is an excerpt from a new article at BBC by Paul Hudson:

For the last 11 years we have not observed any increase in global temperatures.

And our climate models did not forecast it, even though man-made carbon dioxide, the gas thought to be responsible for warming our planet, has continued to rise.

So what on Earth is going on?

 

Pacific ocean (BBC)

But in the last few years it (the Pacific Ocean) has been losing its warmth and has recently started to cool down.

Restore the Republic, Reject the Green Agenda of the Progressive Left!

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on, or by imbeciles who really mean it. — Mark Twain

Al Gore Unquestionable

On Oct. 9th, former Vice President Al Gore spoke to the Society of Environmental Journalists. He shared his optimism about the “shifting momentum” of the climate change debate with about 500 environmental journalists. 

“We’re very close to that political tipping point,” Gore said at annual conference at the Madison Concourse Hotel. “Never before in human history has a single generation been asked to make such difficult and consequential decisions”.

After his speech, Gore agreed to a rare question and answer session with the journalists in attendance.

Phelim McAleer, an Irish filmmaker and director of “Not Evil, Just Wrong,” a documentary challenging Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth,” dared to ask Gore to address nine errors in his film identified by a British court in 2007. Instead of answering the question Gore ignored the it and tried to turn it around on McAleer.

Since the former Vice President has assumed the mantle of Green Champion he talks out of both sides of his mouth. As a general rule, he refuses Q & A sessions. Al Gore is a fraud He jets around the globe spreading the gospel of environmentalism while leaving a giant carbon footprint as a trail. Meanwhile he is loading his bank account with a fortune he is making as the frontman for this scam.

Watch a video of the exchange below:

Al – you are an embarrassment – Shut up and go back to your Tennessee mansion.

Global warming is a scam. The temperature increases peaked in 1998 and has been declining ever since. It is cyclical and always has been.  In support of weather being cyclical here are a few blast from the past: In 1924 both the N.Y. Times and Time magazine wrote alarming articles about global cooling but by the mid 1930’s both were reporting that we were headed for a period of scary global warming. Then in the mid 70’s, during my high school years, both were back to reporting cooling trends and even a potential second ice age.

There is not conclusive evidence that all of the claims being made by the forces of Al Gore are accurate. In fact there is a large group within the scientific community that do not agree. However, media coverage of this opposing view is limited and most attempts at public debate on the issue gets no notice.

Restore the Republic, Reject the Global Warming Scam – It is a scare tactic to push us toward a world run by the U.N.

The Missing Link …UN Agenda 21

What is  “Agenda 21″  and the yearly “Earth Summit” attended by world leaders? It is the UN blueprint for global transformation defined as:

“Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment.”

“When George H.W. Bush signed the Rio Accords at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, he opened the path for the United States to implement U.N. Sustainable Development Agenda 21. When Bill Clinton created the President’s Council for Sustainable Development by Executive Order in 1993, he laid the foundation for a proliferation of intermediate and local councils that would set out to alter radically the structure of government in the United States. These councils operate under many different names. Later under George W. Bush, Sustainable Development policy began to swarm every county in the country”. – Michael Shaw, Proprietor of Liberty Garden

Remember, because agenda technically is a treaty, a president can sign treaties without Congressional oversight or approval. George H.W. Bush has always been a “New World Order” supporter. Now we may find out what that really means.

Some of the objectives of Agenda 21 are: 1) The abolition of private property 2) A Global Citizenship Education Program (think Story of Stuff) and 3) Control over and massive population reduction (think John Holdren and his writings)

George Washington said and warned:  “Private property and freedom are inseparable.”

“Just as man can’t exist without his body, so no rights can exist without the right to translate one’s rights into reality, to think, to work and keep the results, which means: the right of property”.  ~Ayn Rand

Agenda 21 is a treaty that creates a global contract binding all nations and spreading regions to the collective vision of “sustainable development.” All must commit to pursue the three E’s of “sustainability”: Environment, Economy and Equity referring to the UN blueprint for environmental regulations, economic regulations, and social equity. – U.N.

“…current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work-place air-conditioning, and suburban housing – are not sustainable. A shift is necessary. which will require a vast strengthening of the multilateral system, including the United Nations…” – Maurice Strong

I could try and will in future posts to better explain U.N. Agenda 21 but to get a really sense of how far this has already spread and the threat it poses to our national sovereignty as well as to our individual rights; please watch the attached videos. After that visit the links. This is serious, this is real and this is happening. It starts to help bring all the things that don’t make sense into focus. Also please recognize that I am not suggesting that good stewardship is not a worthy goal and activity, just not at the expense of our sovereignty. You can have both.

All of the previous administrations back to 1992 have helped to move Agenda 21 forward. Now with Obama in the White House the agenda is on steroids. Legislation is advancing fast and furious. This legislation supports the foundation of this program – think Cap & Trade, Healthcare Reform. Look at the people that are or were in this administration and consider their well documented personal philosophies; Cass Sunstein, John Holdren and Van Jones. Look at the use of federal agencies to avoid legislative battles by using regulatory authority to force changes that they could never push through with legislation – i.e.: recent changes by the EPA to redefine the “dangers” of greenhouse gas.  Think about the stories in the news that make you scratch your head such as the water crisis in California’s San Jaoquin Valley which is killing one of America’s major agricultural areas in order to “protect” smelt. Think about the education of your children and the indoctrination that is going on in our schools. Think about the propaganda video that George Soros and his Tides Foundation has managed to get into our classrooms – “The Story of Stuff”. Even consider the indoctrination of yourself – the catch phrases such as “Think Globally& Act Locally”. Think about how often you now hear the words – Sustainable Development.  The threat has been woven into the fabric of society and it is hard to separate the good parts from the insidious ones. Sustainable Development is the core of this contrived crisis. As more and more people are sucked into the government driven Sustainable  Development movement, America will suffer through what Al Gore has described as a ‘deserved’,“wrenching transformation”.

Ask yourself – Why and what does it mean? The real and darker purpose of Sustainable Development is to create a government controlled society. A government controlled society is represents the end of America and our way of life.

My goal is not to frighten but rather to educate. The videos below are many and some are long. They are important and you owe it to yourself, your children and their children to watch them. We are at the turning point and we must take action now if we want to save our country. I believe at our core we are still a religous people that values family, faith and country. The Green Movement has become the new religion for some and it is the tool that they will use to “create the crisis” that could trigger the end of our country by using fear, manipulation of the food, energy and healthcare system to achieve their objectives to push us into a world run government. This will as the President likes to say, “Fundamentally transform America”. Look at the U.N. charter, read it and understand that its’ stated objective is “Global Governance”. The United Nations Declaration of Human Rights states in Article 29 Section 3 that: “Rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations”.

I do not want to be a conspiracy theorist but there are starting to be too many coincidences. This could lead us to think that at the very least, there might actually be a concerted effort to push the world toward an international governing body.

Again, I ask you watch the videos and follow the links with an open mind. Think about the body of evidence and draw your own conclusions.

How can this happen? Actually it is easy really -I will quote the Conservapuppies Blog, who say it perfectly -
 “The majority of the members of Congress probably aren’t even aware of any of what is really going on, they are just “useful idiots” , too lazy to read the bills they are voting on, happy to vote “yes” in return for special favors and pork to take home to the voters”.

The Building Blocks of Socialism

The American Way of Life Under Siege – Day 210

This blog has 3 goals, they are:

Goal #1 – I want To PISS YOU OFF!!

Goal #2 – I want To MAKE YOU THINK!

Goal #3 – And I want to MOTIVATE YOU to TAKE ACTION by getting involved!

As I been writing for several weeks, our way of life, our freedom, our liberty and the America that we all love is under attack from the Socialist Left. They are led by President Obama, a Harvard educated community organizer who grew up in the rough and tumble world of Chicago politics. As we have discussed previously, he has a plan and he built a team around him to execute it. He is counting on your passive – “that can’t happen in America attitude” to provide a window of opportunity for him to “Fundamentally transform America!”

Remember – his team is mostly the Czars who work inside the Executive Branch of the Government and are only accountable to the President – no congressional, judicial oversight or approval- and sure as hell – no transparency!

I want to focus on the immediate risks. While everyone is in a twist over the health care bill it is just one of the problems. I find myself getting sucked in – wanting to virtually debate the President and call him out on his disingenuous town hall rhetoric. He likes to discuss in general terms the policies of how he claims his administration would interpret and administer the program. All the while deftly avoiding the contents of the bill which would become law. Just think back to tax cuts for 95% of Americans or the veto pen to stop pork barrel spending policies which have or are changing because “the situation changed”. However, we must remain vigilant because the healthcare reform is not the only game changing bill on the table. Keeping up with these guys is like playing 3 card monte with a street hustler.

Remember the administration is following the community organizer’s handbook. The plan is to overwhelm the system. Why is there such a rush to pass all this legislation? Why has there been several major bills overlapping in Congress ever since he took office – Tax & Cap, Healthcare Reform, Bailouts, Card Check, Serve America Act, etc.? Got it yet? That’s right – overwhelm the system because they are betting we can’t organize fast enough to stop everything.

Play Chuck Todd clip starts at 1:25

Think about this – we are less than a year into this administration and a year away from bringing any balance back to Congress. Anything we do beat back they have time to try again. Worse yet anything they pass, even in a watered down version they have their foot in the door. Remember the infamous Rahm Emanuel quote about crisis.

Play Rahm Emanuel Crisis Clip

There are 4 pieces of legislation that are inching closer to a vote each of which pose significant risk by themselves but any combination or worse yet all of them passing is nothing short of a monumental disaster.

So what are the game changers pending before Congress or being proposed as regulatory guidelines by the administration. They are:

Obviously Healthcare Reform is the one that drives the most emotion and has dominated the spotlight. This mostly because it is the one that is most easily personalized.

The Waxman Markey Climate Change Bill also known as Cap and Tax or the Climate Change Bill. While not as easy to see all the ways this will directly affected our lives on an individual basis, it is every bit as insidious.

The Employee Free Choice Act – Also known as Card Check. There could not be a more misleading name for a piece of legislation than this one. The bill makes union organizing much easier by eliminating secret ballot union ratification votes. It also creates a much more difficult environment for employers to tell their side of the story once organizing begins as well as changing the negotiating landscape if an organizing effort is successful. More on this later.

Last but not least, an assault on free speech. This will likely occur through a regulatory initiative rather than legislation. This program was formerly known as the Fairness Doctrine. This will be spearheaded by Mark Lloyd, the FCC’s new chief diversity officer. In 2007, he laid out a “battle plan” for liberal activists to target conservative talk radio stations authoring for the Center for American Progress a report called “The Structural Imbalance of Political Talk Radio”. In his new role at the FCC, it is almost a certainty that this will become an agenda item at some point. This is especially obvious when you consider how much credit Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity and other conservative talk show hosts are being given for the current healthcare reform backlash.

In the interest of the length of this post, I am going to tackle two of these items in this one and the next two tomorrow. Let’s start with the Fairness Doctrine. I want to do this for two reasons; first, you can go a thousand other places to read about Healthcare Reform and second, if a new version of the Fairness Doctrine goes through – where will we get the other side of the news?

So what is the Fairness Doctrine? Introduced in 1949, it required the holders of broadcast licenses both to present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was (in the Commission’s view) honest, equitable and balanced. In other words, the Fairness Doctrine had two basic elements: It required broadcasters to devote some of their airtime to discussing controversial matters of public interest, and to air contrasting views regarding those matters. Stations were given wide latitude as to how to provide contrasting views: It could be done through news segments, public affairs shows, or editorials. The doctrine did not require equal time for opposing views but required that contrasting viewpoints be presented.

In 1985, the Fairness Doctrine was revoked by then FCC Chairman Mark Fowler, a communications attorney who said, that the doctrine hurt the public interest and violated free speech rights guaranteed by the First Amendment. The left has been howling ever since.

Mark Lloyd, the FCC’s new chief diversity officer’s report found that 90% of political talk radio programming has a conservative orientation. He thinks this is some how unfair. To start with he contends that this impart is due to the consolidation of radio syndicates around the country. He believes that big business backs the conservative or Republican viewpoint. Therefore, they are taking away the local voice that might be more liberal. This proves two things to me. First, he does not understand free market economics because if nobody is listening then nobody would be advertising. Advertising pays the bills so I don’t care what you personally believe – if you own the radio station and nobody is buying ads – you will change the programming. Second, he obviously does not watch the network TV news because it is pretty one sided to the left.

So what is his bottom line – well, in his paper for the Center for American Progress, he concludes that under the current guidelines the public interests are not being served. Lloyd in his paper says that the solution is to restructure the system to change ownership guidelines to reduce the footprint of large broadcast ownership groups. He also recommends shorter license terms and significant penalties based on programming content designed to subsidize smaller operators to keep their stations on the air. Even though his report acknowledges more demand for conservative political talk versus that of liberals he believes there needs to be more “balance”. Can you say state run radio? Make no mistake – free speech is under attack. You don’t need to look any further than the healthcare town halls to understand that if you disagree then you should shut up – or prepare to be ridiculed and attacked.

Next Up – The Waxman Markey Climate Change Bill or (Cap & Tax)

What is cap and trade?

The Cap – It is a system that sets a limit or a cap on emissions generated by fossil fuel use. Companies will be given an emission limit based on either a formula or a historical profile. Over time the limit would be reduced to achieve a target that in theory would reduce the cumulative global output to 80% of 1990 actual output by 2050.

The Trade – Companies that perform below their allocated levels can bank the unused units and sell them to companies that exceed their allocated units.

Theoretically, the system would be adopted worldwide and the total global cap would be designed to reduce global warming. This sounds great right?

So are you ready for the rest of the story?

This is going to essentially be the biggest “disguised tax” in U.S. history. President Obama promised no new taxes for 95% of Americans. This bill is at its’ heart a tax on energy. While defenders say it only taxes dirty, carbon based energy turns out that is about 90% of the energy used in this country. An average American will see their energy bills increase between $1000 & $2000 per year depending on where they live and how their energy is produced.

Play Cap and Trade – It’s an energy tax

This bill will also result in significant job losses as energy companies struggle to become compliant with new government regulations and businesses struggle with the higher price of energy. Some analysts are saying job losses will average 2.5 million per year for up to three years after the program is implemented. This would be on top of the million Americans already unemployed.

Another thing that should worry us all… after a draft of the bill had been made easily accessible to the public for over a month, just hours before the bill was voted on 350 pages of amendments were tacked on containing God knows what! Another bill passed that nobody read completely after the last minute additions – I’m scared, are you?

However, while the government holds U.S. businesses to these ridiculous standards, the Chinese are polluting the hell out of the planet and kicking our ass at manufacturing. Good thing global warming is a myth!

Meanwhile back at home in the U.S., the federal government has piled on the regulations and restrictions that continue to reduce America’s global competitiveness. The Congress and environmental groups have objections to almost every solution to America’s move toward energy independence which translates into a healthier economy.

Here is a list of potential solutions along with the associated objection:

Nuclear power: Cheap and surprisingly safe, despite the safety concerns the industry has had a long record of safe operations in the U.S. There are 439 nuclear power plants operating in 30 countries around the world, 104 in the U.S. This is one of the largest sources of power in Europe. It also has a smaller carbon footprint than other energy sources. Legitimately, nuclear power is the easiest to argue against due to storage, safety and potential target for terrorism.

Coal Powered Electric Generation: The largest source of power in the U.S. coal plants produce the highest level of carbon dioxide of the primary sources. While there is a lot of work on building clean coal technology debate rages over whether it is real and cost effective. Ironically, coal provides the most immediate solution to U.S. energy independence because we have some of the world’s largest reserves. However, if we are not allowed to use it here at home I am sure we will eventually sell our coal reserves off to China and India allowing them to use the cheaper fuel while we pay higher prices at home.

Wind Power: While wind power is one of the cleanest and most environmentally friendly sources for power it still receives continuous attacks from environmental and citizens groups. The primary complaints from environmentalists focus on birds and bats with regard to migratory patterns. While citizen groups often complain about the aesthetics of the turbines themselves. Even Sen. Ted Kennedy, supposedly a supporter of all things green, complained about the Cape Wind Project near his summer home. Of course, wind turbines will also require those nasty transmission lines.

Solar Power: Solar technology has evolved to a point where base load solar power is now technically feasible. California has started exploring the possibility of constructing such plants in the Mohave Desert. While today it remains relatively expensive 4x the cost of coal powered electricity per kilowatt hour there is confidence in the engineering community that costs could be cut by as much as two thirds as the technology continues to be refined. The only known negative environmental impact is construction of the plants and the use of transmission lines to bring the power back to the population centers. The environmentalists have already started their campaigns to protect the desert and all the areas the transmission lines will be built on. Prompting a frustrated California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to say, “They say we want renewable energy but they say they don’t want us to put it anywhere. I don’t know if this is ironic or absurd. But, I mean, if we can’t put solar power plants in the Mohave Desert, I don’t know where the hell we can put them.”

I think you are starting to get the point. Ironically, the U.S. Senate already voted 95-0 against participation in the Kyoto Treaty or any similar treaty.

Recognizing that there was not support in Congress to vote this type of legislation into law, on April 17th the Administration used its’ regulatory power through the EPA and announced that greenhouse gas emission were a threat to public health because they contribute to climate change. This sets the stage for the EPA to regulate emissions from a wide spectrum of sources including vehicles, power plants, manufacturing facilities, oil refineries and airplanes. Soon we will be chasing environmental standards that are unrealistic and hurt our ability to compete in the world. These standards will raise the cost of power, transportation and products for both citizens and most American businesses. This feeds into the larger cycle of government rules and regulations that reduce the profitability of our economy, put us at a disadvantage in the global market and slows economic recovery.

The only winners in this situation will be the multi-national businesses such as GE which spent an estimated $20 million on lobbying efforts on all things green. In addition to their huge footprint in wind and solar power, GE has announced the launch of a new subsidiary called Greenhouse Gas Services, which will facilitate the trading of carbon tax credits. GE and others are poised to cash in on this “crisis” while the rest of us are left to foot the bill.

In the end Cap & Trade will be just another undisclosed tax and financial burden on the citizens of the U.S. It is an international wealth shifting program that holds the U.S. to the highest standard while holding China arguably the other super power to none.

Ask yourself why as an American, your standard of living should be lowered and your way of life changed to finance this nonsense while the rest of the world is free to continue on their merry way, doing what they want and kicking our butts in the process?

Remember the words of Emma Brindal, a climate justice campaigner and a coordinator for Friends of the Earth: “A climate change response must have at its heart a redistribution of wealth and resources.”

Write your representatives and tell them we are not interested in Cap & Trade or subsidizing the cost of switching to alternative energy systems on an artificial schedule. Since this bill has already passed the house, we need to focus on our Senators. We must send them a clear message that this bill must not pass. We can be good citizens of the world without destroying our economy. Through American innovation we will continue to move toward cleaner energy and more thoughtful environmental policies but not at the expense of our own economic security. Scare tactics aside, we have time to both “fix” the problems and protect our economy. There is no time to waste; this needs your immediate attention. To learn more about The Waxman Markey Climate Change Bill or Cap & Trade check my blog category under Global Warming for several very specific posts.

Unfortunately, Congress is currently littered with a variety of proposed legislation that supports the administration’s social reengineering agenda. We must be vigilant in identifying these bills and fight them. After all, the only thing at stake is the American Dream!

Cap & Trade – It’s an Energy Tax

Remember no new taxes on anyone making less than $250K ? Guess what income tax isn’t the only way to create revenue – Oh no! YES WE CAN! Another moment of truth – you shouldn’t be surprised, this is just the beginning. This has got the potential to be just as bad as the healthcare reform bill. Most estimate this will cost the average American household an additional $1700 a year in utility costs.

 

We need to recognize that we are under attack. While you are protesting healthcare reform don’t forget to tell them to vote against The Waxman Markey Climate Change Bill as well.
