Kill the Cows!

According to Lord Stern of Brentford, a leading authority (?) on global warming, we all need to adopt a vegetarian lifestyle, if the ware going to conquer climate change.

In a recent interview, Lord Stern said: “Meat is a wasteful use of water and creates a lot of greenhouse gases. It puts enormous pressure on the world’s resources. A vegetarian diet is better.”

Farting cows and other livestock are a major source of methane emissions into the atmosphere. Methane is 23 times more powerful than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas according to some scientists.

Lord Stern, went on to speculate that a successful agreement in Copenhagen at the Climate Change Conference could lead to a sharp spike in prices for meat and other foods that produce large quantities of greenhouse gas.

He predicted that as people become more responsible, they will become more concerned about the carbon content of their food. He probably would like to see it added to the nutritional information panel of all foods. According to the UN, meat production is responsible for about 18 per cent of global carbon emissions.

Meanwhile back at home, Democrats have attached themselves to their usual solution – if want to get rid of something tax it out of existence.  Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-WI., the ranking member of the House Select Committee for Energy Independence and Global Warming, if the current climate change 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.

At this rate, 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.

Let’s for a minute pretend that this madness makes some sort of sense. Is the Lord of Brentford suggesting a mass murder of livestock? What about horses and camels, don’t they fart too? Maybe we should by him a copy of “The Gas We Pass: The Story of Farts” by Shinta Cho, as he seems to be in denial about how things really work.

Do you ask yourself with increasing frequency… Who are these idiots and who put them in charge?

It is time to stop the madness! Reject Climate Change Legislation and the Copenhagen Treaty proposals! Restore the Republic – Enough is Enough!

By the way vegans beware – don’t sit there with that smug look on your face – beans are next!

The Sky is Falling!

In 1943, as a comment on the war Walt Disney produced a cartoon version of the classic Chicken Little.  In this version of the tale, Foxy Loxy is a cunning villain who uses a number of psychological tactics to drive a farm full of animals into a cave to be eaten. Slightly disturbing and quite political it was a not so subtle message about manipulation of the facts and emotions to gain compliance.  The stimulus package, healthcare reform, climate change …. The sky is falling and if we don’t take action right away…. look familar? Watch the video – yeah it’s a cartoon but what a powerful message…..

A Special Thanks to Rosie O’Connor for pointing me to this cartoon in response to my post of  “Make Mine Freedom”.

Amazingly when you consider these two 1940’s cartoons, what we face today is nothing new to our great country. Except the difference this time is; there are many people in our government that want to “fundamentally transform America”. Is that what you want? That is the question that you must ask yourself. If not, what are you doing about it? Many people are still walking around in a fog telling themselves that this can’t happen in America. Well it can and it is! This Congress and Administration are spending us into national bankruptcy by creating  false crisis after false crisis. The stimulus has not fixed the economy, the climate is not changing due to man and healthcare may need some reform but does not require a complete overhaul. Yet we are being told; Run to the cave! Do you ever wonder why we suddenly need to do everything in such a hurry? Do you wonder what your country will look like if we enact the proposed climate change regulation and suddenly live in the land of carbon credits? (Look at Europe if you want to see how well that works).

America, wake up! This is bait and switch at its’ best. You voted for Hope and Change; not ropes and chains. You have been suckered. Instead of running like a flock of scared chickens to the false safety of the government cave, ask questions and demand answers! Time is running out to stop this dangerous government expansion. Ask yourself these questions:

Nine months into this administration did you expect:

The federal government to be in control of both the mortgage and the banking industries? That 19 of America ‘s largest banks would be forced to undergo stress tests by the federal government which would determine if they were insufficiently capitalized, so they must be supervised by the government?

The federal government would be the largest shareholder in two US automakers: GM, and Chrysler? That the government would kick out the CEO’s of these companies and appoint hand-picked executives with zero experience in the auto industry and that executive compensation would be determined, not by a Board of Directors, but by the government?

That Barack Obama would appoint over 30 Czars, without congressional approval, accountable only to him, not to the voters and these Czars would have control over a wide range of US policy decisions? That there would be a Stimulus Accountability Czar, a Regulatory Czar, an Urban Czar, a Compensation Czar, an Iran Czar, an Auto Industry Czar, a Cyber Security Czar, an Energy Czar, a Bank Bailout Czar, and more than a dozen other government bureaucrats with unchecked regulatory powers over US domestic and foreign policy?

The federal deficit would be $915 billion in the first six months of the Obama presidency – with a projected annual deficit of $1.75 trillion – triple the $454.8 billion in 2008.  Congress would pass Obama’s $3.53 trillion federal budget for fiscal 2010… That the projected deficit over the next ten years would be greater than $10 trillion?

The federal government would seek powers to seize key companies whose failures could jeopardize the financial system? That a new regulatory agency would be proposed by Obama to control loans, credit cards, mortgage-backed securities, and other financial products offered to the public?

The Obama Justice Department would order FBI agents to read Miranda rights to high-value detainees captured on the battlefield and held at US military detention facilities in Afghanistan? That Obama would order the closing of the Guantanamo detention facility with no plan for the disposition of the 200-plus individuals held there? That several of the suspected terrorists at Guantanamo would be sent to live in freedom in Bermuda at the expense of the US government?

President Obama would to use the FCC to try to dismantle conservative talk radio through the imposition of a new “Fairness Doctrine”? That he wants to curtail the First Amendment rights of those who may disagree with his policies via internet blogs, cable news networks, or advocacy ads? That most major network television and most newspapers will only sing his phrases like state-run media in communist countries?

States rights guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment would be under attack and the federal government would be attempting to gain sweeping new powers through regulation over policies currently under the province of local and state governments or voted on by the people? That Obama plans to control energy production, the environment, health care, education and the wealth of every US citizen?

The President to fly around the world apologizing for America and negotiate with thug dictators or madmen?

The president, the courts, and the federal government are ignoring the US Constitution and have seized powers which the founders of our country fought to restrict?

Not to mention: An additional 3,000,000 lost jobs and unemployment of 9.8%; 2,000,000 foreclosed homes this year and more people on food stamps then ever before.

Enough is enough! Is this the Change you want? Is this how our America ends? I say, Oh, Hell No! It is time to stand up and fight back. We can solve our problems through American ingenuity and the free market. You can’t spend your way to fiscal health. We must rely on American values, our national pride, our spirit of patriotism and our faith in our fellow citizens. America – it is time to restore our values and the American Dream.

Restore the Republic, The Sky is not Falling! Don’t run for safety to the Government Cave, Find your Safety in your Community with your Fellow Americans.

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed — and hence clamorous to be led to safety — by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” – H.L. Mencken 

“If you want total security, go to prison. There you’re fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only thing lacking… is freedom”. – Dwight D. Eisenhower

“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

 

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.

Obama establishes an Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force

Once again the administration is working on fundamentally changing the nation’s culture and traditions through its’ environmental agenda and policy of regulation. The target this time is our lakes, coastal beaches and fishing areas.

 By establishing the taskforce in June, the President put forward another high speed agenda requiring:

   1. Within 90 days from the date of this memorandum, the Task Force shall develop recommendations that include:

  1. A national policy that ensures the protection, maintenance, and restoration of the health of ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes ecosystems and resources, enhances the sustainability of ocean and coastal economies, preserves our maritime heritage, provides for adaptive management to enhance our understanding of and capacity to respond to climate change, and is coordinated with our national security and foreign policy interests. The recommendations should prioritize upholding our stewardship responsibilities and ensuring accountability for all of our actions affecting ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes resources, and be consistent with international law, including customary international law as reflected in the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.
  2. A United States framework for policy coordination of efforts to improve stewardship of the oceans, our coasts, and the Great Lakes. The Task Force should review the Federal Government’s existing policy coordination framework to ensure integration and collaboration across jurisdictional lines in meeting the objectives of a national policy for the oceans, our coasts, and the Great Lakes. This will include coordination with the work of the National Security Council and Homeland Security Council as they formulate and coordinate policy involving national and homeland security, including maritime security. The framework should also address specific recommendations to improve coordination and collaboration among Federal, State, tribal, and local authorities, including regional governance structures.
  3. An implementation strategy that identifies and prioritizes a set of objectives the United States should pursue to meet the objectives of a national policy for the oceans, our coasts, and the Great Lakes.

2. Within 180 days from the date of this memorandum, the Task Force shall develop, with appropriate public input, a recommended framework for effective coastal and marine spatial planning. This framework should be a comprehensive, integrated, ecosystem-based approach that addresses conservation, economic activity, user conflict, and sustainable use of ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes resources consistent with international law, including customary international law as reflected in the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.

3. The Task Force shall terminate upon the completion of its duties.

The Task Force’s recommendations and frameworks should be cost effective and improve coordination across Federal agencies. – Source: President Obama’s Letter Creating the Taskforce

 As has been so often the case with this administration, we have a ridiculous task in size and scope for the timeframe being allowed. This means that the policy is already decided and now begins the full court press to ram it down our throats. This just another prong on the pitchfork of the “green agenda” designed to strip us of our freedom, our sovereignty and drive us toward socialism.

 To most this may seem like a benign effort to help protect our natural resources but it is not nearly as innocent as it appears. Policies like this in conjunction with other environmental efforts such as the Endangered Species Act creates regulatory control and avoids the need legislation to set direction of their policies. Think about what is going on – the San Joaquin Valley drought because of a fish which created irrigation restrictions, Cass Sunstein and his Nudge Theory. (you should read his book)  It is all about government control. 

America has always been the home of sports anglers, boaters and water enthusiasts of all types. Across the country from the lakes to the beaches swimming, surfing, water skiing, recreational fishing and boating are not only family traditions but are also huge industries. Recreational fishing alone generated $82 billion in sales, $24 billion in income, and supported 534,000 jobs in 2006 according to NOAA’s Fisheries Service. 

This isn’t just about recreation either.  Commercial fishing – (fishermen, seafood processors, seafood wholesalers and retailers are a $103 billion a year industry. This industry created $44 billion in income and 1.5 million jobs in 2006, according to Fisheries Economics of the United States 2006. 

“The report documents clearly that managing fisheries sustainably is good for the environment and the economy,” said Jim Balsiger, NOAA acting assistant administrator for NOAA’s Fisheries Service. “Fishing helps create a substantial number of jobs around the nation.” 

Fisheries Economics of the United States, 2006 is available online:
http://www.st.nmfs.noaa.gov/st5/publication/index.html

As usual the Presidents announcement includes the promise that this will all be done, “with appropriate public input” but early reports show just the opposite. 

“Important contributions that members of the recreational fishing community made to the Ocean Policy Task Force communicated at our meeting and in our letter were largely ignored in the interim report,” said CSF (Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation) President Jeff Crane. “It is hard to comprehend how the voice of recreational anglers, who were requested to advise the task force and represent such an important constituency on this issue, was so minimized on some very important issues.”

One key issue of concern to the sport fishing community, was the need for differentiation between commercial and recreational fishing. Recreational angling and the critical role it plays in fisheries conservation in the United States was completely missing.

Recreational anglers and the fees they pay for fishing licenses and equipment are critical to conservation management efforts. Funds generated by the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund which is a user-pay/user-benefit program generated $720 million in revenues last year. $402 million of this was distributed to all 50 states to specifically support sport fish restoration programs.

“We are completely baffled as to why the Task Force failed to acknowledge or include any mention of the key aspects of recreational fishing which were presented to them in detail on more than one occasion,” said CSF Board Member Phil Morlock. “The significant number of jobs and the economy which over 60 million American anglers support, and the major conservation efforts by people who fish in all regions of the country were completely ignored. No distinction between the obvious dramatic differences between recreational fishing and commercial harvest methods was made.”

As a sport fisherman myself, I know that the CSF and other sportsmen’s organizations support a healthy ocean, coastal and fishery resources to sustain coastal communities and sound environmental policies in support of protecting our natural resources. These groups also support expanding the scientific basis by which these policies are determined.

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

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.

American Stonehenge, What does it mean?

Here is an interesting side story to my research on UN Agenda 21. I have posted it mostly because it is so interesting and mysterious as for the real relevance – judge for yourself – in the end it might just be a rich guy’s idea of cool grafitti.

In Elbert County, Georgia there is a structure which is often referred to as the “American Stonehenge”. Almost 30 years since its’ construction this mysterious monument is more intriguing than ever. In light of the debates raging over climate change, sustainable development and population control it seems as though it could have been conceived by the authors of UN Agenda 21.

The Georgia Guidestones are a huge granite monument, which contains a message comprised of ten guiding principles inscribed on the structure in eight modern languages, and a shorter message which is inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient languages’ scripts: Babylonian, Classical Greek, Sanskrit, and Egyptian hieroglyphs. (Note: the contractor for the construction contacted the UN for help with the translation of the inscriptions)

According to the secret group which commissioned its’ construction, its’ purpose as described on its’ explanatory tablet states: “Let these be guidestones to an Age of Reason”

The monument is almost 20 feet (6.1 m) tall, and made from six granite slabs weighing more than 240,000 pounds (110,000 kg) in all.[2] One slab stands in the center, with four arranged around it. A capstone lies on top of the five slabs, which are astronomically aligned. An additional stone tablet, which is set in the ground a short distance to the west of the structure, provides some notes on the history and purpose of the Guidestones.

The Georgia Guidestones are located on a hilltop in Elbert County, Georgia, approximately 90 miles (140 km) east of Atlanta, 45 miles (72 km) from Athens and 9 miles (14 km) north of the center of Elberton. The stones are standing on a rise a short distance to the east of Georgia Highway 77 (Hartwell Highway), and are visible from that road. Small signs beside the highway indicate the turnoff for the Guidestones, which is identified by a street sign as “Guidestones Rd.” It is located on the Highest point in Elbert County  -Source: Wikipedia

 The message consists of a set of ten guidelines are engraved on the Guidestones.There is one language used on each face of the four large upright stones. Starting on the north stone and going clockwise around the structure, these languages are: English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian. So what are the instructions on the Guidestones?

  1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
  2. Guide reproduction wisely – improving fitness and diversity.
  3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
  4. Rule passion – faith – tradition – and all things with tempered reason.
  5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
  6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
  7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
  8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
  9. Prize truth – beauty – love – seeking harmony with the infinite.
  10. Be not a cancer on the earth – Leave room for nature – Leave room for nature.

For the facsinating story of this strange monument watch the videos and follow the links below:

 I don’t know what the real significance of the Guidestones is. They have always been and still remain a strange story shrouded in secrecy. The message on them is omniuous and seems to be as much a warning as a guide. In the context of a New World Order they seem to fit with the continuous messsage of global environmental collapse and over population – the UN Agenda 21. However, just like Agenda 21 I reject their premise. The world and its’ citizens are at greater risk from the global elite than anything else.  

It is time to take back the control of our national destiny.

UN Agenda 21 & the New World Order Pt 2

Here is a continuation of the trail from across the internet on UN Agenda 21 and the forces that seem to be driving this initiative. The UN Agenda appears to be the evolution of the principles and ideas of the Progressive and eugenics movements of the early 1900’s. The plan or plans which look remarkably similar to Agenda 21 are at the core of the agendas of several secretive elitist groups such as the Bilderbergs, the Council for Foreign Relations, The Council of Rome and The Trilateral Commission. The goal of one world government which offers the elites an unchallenged position of power through control of all resources and services on which everyone else must rely. Yes – this sounds far fetched and crazy but watch the videos, follow the threads. This thread runs through government websites across the planet.  The central themes are around; Sustainable Development, Climate Change, Global Governance, Population Control and Social Justice.  There is something going on and it starts with the weakening of the US economy, the dollar and a crisis, real or contrived that breaks the spirit of our country.

Look at these groups and pay attention to who is pulling the strings, watch the pattern develop before your eyes. Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller, the rest of the Rockefeller family, the Bush family, the Clintons, Mikhail Gorbachev, John Kerry, Al Gore, the Heinz family, Madeline Albright, Robert Zoellick, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Jimmy Carter, Donald Rumsfeld, Cyrus Vance, Vernon Jordan and other famous US/International leaders from a variety of political backgrounds. The cast is a virtual who’s who across several generations of politicians and business leaders.

If you watch these videos and follow the trail it will not be lost on you that the Rockefellers, particularily David have been the driving force behind three of the most powerful elitist groups (Bilderbergs, CFR and The Club of Rome) and a major benefactor of the UN.

From the 1950’s until 2001 there was an obscure newspaper that reported on the activities of several of these NWO groups called The Spotlight which was later driven out of business in 2001. Here is a link to many of their old articles which help bring some world events into focus even today. http://libertylobby.org/about_us.html

“A New Path for World Development”  http://www.clubofrome.org/eng/new_path/

It is clear that the present path of world development is not sustainable in the longer term, even if we recognize the enormous potentials of the market and of technological innovation. New ideas and strategies will be needed to ensure that improved living conditions and opportunities for a growing population across the world can be reconciled with the conservation of a viable climate and of the fragile ecosystems on which all life depends. A new vision and path for world development must be conceived and adopted if humanity is to surmount the challenges ahead.

In response to this intellectual and practical challenge, the Club of Rome will undertake a three year programme on “A New Path for World Development” so as to achieve a better understanding of the complex challenges which confront the modern world and to lay solid foundations for the action which must be taken to improve the prospects for peace and progress.

The Programme will not only engage decision makers and experts and provide them with feasible proposals for action but will also engage with the public through a variety of channels. It will be in part, an “open source” programme. It will undertake only a limited amount of original research, drawing on the wide array of available information and research in progress. It will be implemented in close collaboration with partner organizations, providing a framework through which their ideas and contributions can be integrated. This will increase the credibility and impact of the efforts of the Club itself.

The Programme will focus on five “clusters” of related issues within the overall conceptual framework of A New Path for World Development:

1.Environment and Resources: This cluster relates climate change, peak oil, ecosystems and water. Radical and rapid social and economic transformations will be needed to avert runaway climate change and ecological breakdown;

2. Globalisation: This cluster relates interdependence, distribution of wealth and income, demographic change, employment, trade and finance. Rising inequalities and imbalances associated with the present path of globalisation risk the breakdown of the world economic and financial systems;

3. World Development: This cluster relates sustainable development, demographic growth, poverty, environmental stress, food production, health and employment. The scandal of abiding poverty, deprivation, inequity and exclusion in a wealthy world must be corrected;

4. Social Transformation: This cluster relates social change, gender equity, values and ethics, religion and spirituality, culture, identity and behaviour. The values and behaviour on which the present path of world development is based must change if peace and progress are to be preserved within the tightening human and environmental limits;

5. Peace and Security: This cluster relates justice, democracy, governance, solidarity, security and peace. The present path of world development risks alienation, polarization, violence and conflict; the preservation of peace is vital in itself but is also a precondition for progress and for the resolution of the issues which threaten the future.

Within each of these clusters, the issues are strongly linked: thus each group constitutes a coherent and manageable field for analysis. The links between the clusters will be accounted for as the programme proceeds, within the overall integrating framework of A New Path for World Development.

The Club will convene five small high-level expert meetings successively over the three year period, 2008 – 2010, one on each of the clusters of issues identified above. Each meeting should produce a clear statement on the issues, risks and opportunities ahead with an outline of the principal strategies and measures required in response. As the Programme proceeds, the insights and knowledge gained from each meeting will provide clear perspectives of constraints and opportunities as the context for the next meeting. By recognizing such linkages, the knowledge acquired will be cumulative and will produce innovative insights as the Programme proceeds.

In relation to each cluster of issues, a private, web-based research network will be established through which the participants in the expert meetings, together with additional experts, can carry on a process of dialogue and research to develop a deeper understanding of the issues and to elaborate specific recommendations and proposals.

Each of these five clusters of issues will be the focus of a specific area of information and analysis on the Club of Rome website. As the analysis proceeds and knowledge increases, each area will accumulate research results, a strengthening data base, a deepening understanding of the issues and their complex interconnectedness and a growing number of proposals for integrated strategy and action.

Systems Integration

As work proceeds on the five clusters, a parallel effort will focus on developing a better conceptual and practical understanding of the world systems within which they are linked and embedded. This will help to understand the linkages between trends, issues and actions and to identify the drivers of global change. The Programme will in this way recognize the immense complexity of world affairs.

A dedicated research network will focus on the issue of systems integration, including systems thinking and systems linkages and systems dynamics modelling. These networks will be supported by the Secretariat and accessed through the Club’s website.

In late 2010 it is planned that the concluding “International Forum of the Club of Rome” will be held to integrate the final outputs of the expert meetings, of the research networks and of the related activities by all the elements of the Club and its partner organizations, leading to coherent conclusions and recommendations and to a major Final Report. – Source The Club of Rome website

One last challenge put the name of your state and the words “Sustainable Development” in to your web browser and see what comes up.

We need to find out how deep we are in this process and put the brakes on. We must regain control of our government and our national destiny. UN Agenda 21 is real.
