Yesterday marked the 20th anniversary of the pulling down of the wall separating East and West Berlin in Germany. For the first time, a German head of state spoke before U.S. Congress. German Chancellor Angela Merkel addressed members of U.S. Congress and one of the subjects Merkel spoke about was the need for a global deal on climate change [Article – Merkel meets with Obama, then talks to Congress]. Perhaps a symbolic appeal by Merkel to tear down the climate change “wall” [Article – The European Experience with Cap and Trade]?
With support for cap and trade legislation on the decline, President Obama vows that the United States will play a prominent role in decreasing global greenhouse gas emissions. Obama’s answer to the climate change question is cap and trade legislation.
The Waxman-Markey bill or rather, Taxman-Malarkey bill (H.R. 2998 – American Clean Energy And Security Act Of 2009) is currently in limbo, since health care reform legislation has taken center stage. Beltway politicians have certainly been working behind the scenes on slipping cap and trade legislation through, with very little public scrutiny…so they hope.
If the United States agrees to comply with some sort of global climate change contract in Copenhagen, Denmark, this will surely embolden leftist environut anti-capitalists in America to get climate change-related cap and trade legislation enacted.
If such a bill goes through, it will destroy the American economy, no ands, ifs or buts about it. We think unemployment is bad now, wait and see how high it will be if cap and trade becomes law. In addition, we and future generations of Americans will pay dearly for the taxes, fees and other costs climate change legislation will incur [Article – Leading Climate Scientist: Cap and Trade Could Ruin US Economy | Reference – Treasury Department – Climate Change Bill Could Cost American Families $1,761 A Year].

Obama “czar” of manufacturing, Ron Bloom says that the free market is “nonsense” and “kinda” agrees with communist China’s late (but no so great) Chairman Mao Tse Tung:
What a coincidence—another Obama staffer who “kinda” agrees with communist boss and mass murderer Mao. Which point does Mr. Bloom agree with Mao on? That it is not really necessary to use force or coercion to achieve political objectives or that one only needs to bluff a person or group of people into thinking the “gun” is not loaded? How well received would the words that Mr. Bloom uttered be, if he took his speech to town hall meetings? So how is the free market not working in communist China today? Would China be on the rise economically without free market capitalism? I wonder how Mao would feel about his precious China if he could see it today. I dare say that if Mao Tse Tung was still living and currently in power, China would still be 20 to 30 years behind the United States, economically and technologically.
Van Jones, Anita Dunn and now Ron Bloom. Is there a pattern here? Why are more of Obama’s staffers and so-called “czars” being exposed embracing the philosophies of a totalitarian communist dictator or Marxist philosophy in general? How long of a laundry list do we have to compile before we see that the current administration in place is anti-capitalist and Marxist? We should not get to the point where it is too late to find out.
Video of Ron Bloom’s full speech can be viewed below (four-part series): Read More…
I thought I hadn’t awakened from my sleep and was still dreaming when I heard that our most highly esteemed potentate and savior of the world, President Barack Hussein Obama, had won the Nobel Peace Prize [Article – Obama says he’ll accept Nobel as ‘call to action’].
President Obama was gracious in his acceptance speech. He had the same feeling of shock and surprise that millions upon millions of people experienced when it was announced that he had won the Nobel Peace Prize. He acknowledged that he was not deserving of the prize and didn’t view the award “as a recognition of my own accomplishments,” but rather as a recognition of goals he has set for the U.S. and the world. Mr. Obama said, “I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many transformative figures that have been honored by this prize.” But, he said, “I will accept this award as a call to action, a call for all nations to confront the challenges of the 21st century.”
What accomplishments? Community organizing? Being a state senator? Performing the duties of a U.S. Senator for the sum total of two years? Talking about hope and change? By transformative figures, I am guessing that President Obama is excluding the late bloodthirsty terrorist Yasser Arafat. It should give us all a warm fuzzy that Obama is accepting the award as a “call to action”. You mean like giving the barbaric Taliban in Afghanistan a role in the government there [Article – Obama Focusing on al Qaeda, not Taliban]? Read More…
Ex-Marine David William Hedrick will be running against U.S. Congressman Brian “Teabaggers Are Terrorists” Baird (D-WA) for Baird’s seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. I have no doubt that Congressman Baird is not the only one who has to fear for his political future. Here is a reminder of the disparaging comment made by Congressman Baird regarding those who oppose government-run health care and increased government control of and interference in the lives of the American people:
Here is a video of Mr. Hedrick in his exchange with Congressman Baird: Read More…
President Obama said that Iran has another uranium enrichment facility, which is in clear violation of U.N. resolutions [Article – 1. Iran Reveals Existence of Second Uranium Enrichment Plant | 2. Leaders React to Iran’s Nuclear Facility | 3. Iran’s key nuclear sites].
This is no revelation to those who have been researching and investigating Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Iran has been building up its nuclear program since 1974. The program was in stasis for a few years as a result of the 1979 revolution, but started back up in the 1990s.
The G.W. Bush administration had been ramping up pressure on Iran to cease enriching uranium for the express purpose of producing weapons. However, this was seen by state-run media and leftist politicians as a tactic to divert attention away from Iraq, Afghanistan and the global war on terror. Not surprisingly, their views on Iran have changed, since Obama became President.
What the present leaders of European nations and the United States fail to recognize is that Iran and other nations like it don’t play by the so-called rules. They don’t care about world opinion. They share the same goal, that being world domination, at any cost. There can be a million sanctions against Iran and it won’t stop them in their quest to destroy those who don’t share their world view or their fanatical ideological views [Article – Ahmadinejad: Iran ‘Will Never Negotiate’ Over Nuclear ‘Rights’].
I share the same sentiments as Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu in his most recent address to the U.N. General Assembly: Read More…
President Obama gave his speech to the United Nations on global climate change. Did he finally say something nice about the United States and its continuing efforts, innovations and successes contributing to a clean environment and becoming more energy efficient? Of course not [Article – Obama Says U.S. ‘Determined’ to Combat Climate Change, Despite Senate Delay].
Meanwhile, more and more scientists, climatologists and climate modelers are abandoning the carbon-caused, carbon dioxide-induced, global warming (climate change) theory [Article – 1.
