The Great American Swindle

A year and several days into the era of Hope and Change and we find ourselves still hoping for the real change that the chosen one, Obama promised in his meteoric rise from obscurity to the office of President of the United States. We were told that the new administration would be one of openness, transparency, inclusion, and participation. The doors would be open, the debates would be televised, and everything would be for the people, by the people. So far the people have been left out of the great new equation.

The debates have not been televised, the openness has been closed. Despite the screaming voices of the people in opposition to their plans, the administration and the Congress have moved ahead with their agendas; bail-outs, stimulus, corporate takeovers, cap-and-trade, climate change, global warming, socialized medicine, earmarks and pork projects.

The unemployment rate is at an all time high, being reported at around 10%. Of course, the sate controlled media isn’t telling the whole truth. When you factor in people that have given up Hope and stopped trying to find jobs, and you take into consideration the under-employed, those are the professional who have opted for working below their pay-grade, so they can keep off the Obama-Teat; the engineer that is making your “Five Dollar Foot long”, or the banker that is bagging your groceries. If the media would take these factors into account when reporting the “news,” the true unemployment figures would be closer to 18%, and not below 10%.

To combat the increasing number of unemployed Congress has developed a plan that even the state controlled media had to admit will do very little to accomplish job creation or growth; “the Obama administration acknowledges the legislation’s centerpiece — a tax cut for businesses that hire unemployed workers — would work only on the margins.”

Obama is leading as though he is still on the campaign trail: A new sound bite each day, a new empty promise. Obama has spent much of the last year bashing the banking industry, painting the executives as Wall Street, money hungry, elite, monsters that care only about big bonuses and not about the little man, the customer, Main Street. But, last week here is what Obama had to say about the $9 million bonus Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein will be paid and the $17 million bonus JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon will receive: “There are some baseball players who are making more than that and don’t get to the World Series either, so I’m shocked by that as well….I know both those guys; they are very savvy businessmen,” Obama said. “I, like most of the American people, don’t begrudge people success or wealth. That is part of the free-market system.”

I am confused here…

I thought the Administration was leading the charge on limits being placed on executive bonuses? The way Obama walks the fence is amazing. He is the Karl Wallenda of the Oval Office. He manages to walk the fence, never falling to one side or the other. He cannot do this for long, because the wind is a tightrope walkers worst enemy, and the winds of change can be quite strong.

This last week the Congress and Obama had more trouble getting together, not from any philosophical impasse, but from the physical impasse of snow. The nation’s capital was buried in several feet of snow. A historic blizzard hit the country, dropping snow into 49 of the 50 United States for the first time ever. In spite of the white out of the White House, the Administration, the state controlled media, and the left-wing environment-terrorists have doubled down on the joke of Global Warming. Despite the fact that almost every claim that the conspiracy of Global Warming has been built on has been proven by the Climate Gate email scandal to the admission of the East Anglia geniuses, to be completely false at worst and based on junk-science at best. But, Obama and his administration still proclaim that global warming is a fact, and that we need to institute cap-and-trade and other disruptive, costly and destructive ways to stop the “inconvenient truth” of global warming. Speak of inconvenient truths where in the world is Al “Carbon Footprint” Gore?

How long the Obam-scam go on? I never thought the Hope and Change Express would get derailed so quickly, but the wheels on this bus are falling off. Democrats from snow covered sates all over the U.S. are pulling the cord, telling Obama that they want to get off at the next stop. Kennedy, Bayh, Dodd, Dorgan, etc… This is truly amazing, and very telling. It speaks volumes about where the Democratic Party has been driven with Barrack Hussein Obama and his Chicago cronies at the wheel. The Democratic Party has the Senate, the House and the White House, and can conceivably accomplish just about anything they want, regardless of the people or the Republicans, but these politicians would rather quit than fight to stay in their seats of power.

Are they embarrassed at the thought of losing? It cannot be that. I don’t think someone like Chris Dodd is capable of being embarrassed, you have to have some sense of right and wrong, some amount of humility and humanity to feel embarrassment. I don’t think there is a single Democrat that has these qualities, at least not any currently seated in Washington.

Perhaps, they have just seen the future, or lack thereof in following Obama. They got behind a rising star, which has gone super-nova and is burning out after just one year in office. Obama swindled the Democratic Party and the mindless masses that voted for him. He smooth-talked his way into office with sound bites and slogans and now he finds himself a boy at the desk of a man. The Obama team thought it would be easy, thought they would just do whatever they wanted and the cows of the party and the public would follow, but nothing is that easy.

If it were, the wars would be over, Gitmo would be closed, the deficit would be reduced, the dollar would be strong, the country would be safe, Joe Biden would shut up, Al Qaeda would be gone, and the great swindle that Global Warming is would be tossed aside like so much tripe.

Climategate: it’s all unravelling now

James Delingpole – Telegraph UK

So many new developments: which story do we pick? Maybe best to summarize, instead. After all, it’s not like you’re going to find much of this reported in the MSM.

1. Australia’s Senate rejects Emissions Trading Scheme for a second time.

2. Danes caught fiddling their carbon credits. (Hat tip: Philip Stott) Carbon trading is the Emperor’s New Clothes of international finance.

3. Hats off to The Daily Express – the first British newspaper to make the AGW scam its front page story.

4. BBC finally gets round to reporting – sort of – that Climatic Research Unit at University of East Anglia may have been up to no good. I

5. Legal actions ahoy! Over the next few weeks, one thing we can be absolutely certain of is concerted efforts by the rich, powerful and influential AGW lobby to squash the Climategate story.

6. Watch out Green Dave! The Independent reports on the growing backlash within the party to Cameron’s libtard-wooing greenery.

Green is the New Hypocrisy

The rich and famous have always been used to trumpet the way for causes, given platforms to speak, because the dumb masses think that a pretty face, and tight body are the same as intelligence and worth. Not all celebrities are bad; look at Paul Newman and his Hole in the Wall Charity. He raised money through various efforts including his grocery products and used the proceeds to run the charity. Look at Danny Thomas and St. Jude Medical, or don Imus and his Ranch for Kids with Cancer.

These people are examples of those who walk the talk the talk, and walk the walk. Maybe the green movement needs more people like this and fewer Al Gores, or John Travoltas.
The Green Movement, which Champions a cause which at best is questionable, and at worst a complete hoax, is lead by typical limousine liberals whose mantra is “Do what I say, and not as I do.” They are happy to put a carbon foot print on the ass of anyone who drives and SUV, but don’t question the size of their footprints. Al Gore has a Carbon Footprint that make Bob Lanier’s footprint look small.

A recent article chronicled some of the ways that the leaders and loudmouths of the Green Movement are leading by example: “Sheryl Crow, who was leading a Stop Global Warming concert tour across America. It was revealed that while Crow traveled in a bio-diesel tour bus, her 30-person entourage followed in a fleet of 13 gas-guzzling vehicles.”

“John Travolta encouraged British public to do its bit to fight global warming — after flying into London on one of his five private jets (one of which is a Boeing 707). In 2006 his piloting hobby produced an estimated 800 tons of carbon emissions, more than a hundred times the output of the average Briton, according to the Carbon Trust.”

“Tom Cruise who has campaigned for the LA-based environmental group Earth Communications Office — also has an air fleet and a license to pilot his five planes, including a top-of-the-line customized Gulfstream jet he bought for his wife, Katie Holmes.”

“Harrison Ford, who is vice-chairman on the board of Conservation International, voices public-service messages for an environmental federation called EarthShare is another hobby pilot. He once owned a Gulfstream but now makes do with a smaller Cessna Citation Sovereign eight-seater jet, four propeller planes and a helicopter.”

“Oprah Winfrey, who preaches eco-virtue from her TV pulpit, traveled in a 13-seat Gulfstream IV private jet for years…”

“Jennifer Aniston told reporters that to save the Earth’s precious water resources she brushes her teeth while in the shower. But she also flew a hairdresser to Europe to accompany her on a recent publicity tour for the film Marley & Me.”

“Dame Trudie Styler, wife of Sting. Not only do she and her husband run seven homes and travel between them in private jets and a fleet of cars, but in 2007 an employment tribunal revealed Styler was furious when her pregnant chef refused to travel 100 miles to prepare some soup and salad.” Dame Styler was quoted; “Yes, I do take planes. My life is to travel and to speak out about the horrors of an environment that is being abused at the hands of oil companies.”

It is estimated that Bono and his Uber-Eco friendly super group U2 on their last tour produced the carbon equivalent of the annual emissions of 6,500 British homes — or a rocket trip to Mars and back.”

These are only a few examples of the hypocrisy of the super elite left eco mob that is running and championing the largest scam ever perpetrated on earth. It is astonishing that with questionable evidence, hypocrite spokes people, and the recent scandal of emails showing collusion between the so-called scientists behind the theories that this movement is still thriving. The Obama White House and Congress have even chosen to ignore the fact that there are no facts.

The truth behind Global Warming and Climate change is green… its dollars. It is as simple as that. Al Gore’s family made millions off of oil and now he is cashing in against it. He has been awarded the Nobel Prize, and even won an Oscar. Of course the Noble Prize seems to be given out to just about anyone these days, and he should have won for best picture not documentary, as there is more fact in the new movie 2012 than in that waste of time he produced.

Cap-and-Trade is not about cleaning the environment or reducing green house gasses, it’s just about making it more expensive to create them. Taxing oil companies, manufacturers and even farmers. Yes it has been discovered that the methane release from farting cows is an enormous contributor to the warming of the globe. I wonder if Al Gore and his carbon off-set company have patented the BMAG yet? That would be the Bovine Methane Ass Gage… used to measure the flatulence of Bessie as she quietly chews her cud. With GPS and satellite technology every bovine blast can be measured, taxed accordingly, and debited directly from the bank account of Mrs. O’Leary. This will not reduce the amount of green-ass gas that is emitted, but it will make Al Gore rich, make the farmer go out of business, and make the cost of milk and steak go up, as all the costs will be passed on to us, the consumer. Thanks Al.

We are a carbon-based world, and carbon dioxide is emitted every time we breathe. Plants, trees, and all vegetation use carbon dioxide to create oxygen for us to breathe. It is a circle… We, much like the dinosaurs of pre-historic periods, or like the mammals of the ice age, are mere blips on the continuum of the earth’s existence. The earth has been here for more time tan we can fathom, and it will be here far beyond our wildest concepts of time.

At best we are temporary habitants of an ever-changing environment, that doesn’t bend to our perceived dominance over it. Hurricanes happen, tornadoes happen, earthquakes happen, tidal waves happen. We do not cause them, and we cannot stop them. You can believe in God, Allah, Yahweh, the King of Ethiopia, Jesus Christ, the Dali Lama, Buddha, Obi Wan Kenobi, it doesn’t matter. You will die and the earth will go on as it always has.

This being said I still think it is a good idea to look into alternative fuels, and sources of energy. But we should not have them crammed down our throats by the Government. Just like the auto industry and the carbon-based fuel industry, alternative sources of energy will have their day. When the market is their, private industry will seize the moment and capitalize. It is as simple as that. When there is a viable market for an item or service, that has come about be real demand, innovation or opportunity than the private sector makes the investment, builds up the industry and creates jobs and opportunity.

I do not care who the president is, or how good his intentions are, no government can create this. It has to come about organically; it has to evolve, much like we do. Evolution takes time. More time than any of us have on this planet. We need to look to the future, but we cannot forsake the present.

Change will come, it always does. It just takes time.

Obama: Despite research dispute, ‘climate change is happening’

The White House on Monday made exceptionally clear that it wants nothing to do with the furor over documents that global warming skeptics say prove the phenomenon is not a threat.

Despite the incident, which rocked international headlines last week, climate science is sound, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs stressed this afternoon, and the White House nonetheless believes “climate change is happening.” MORE

No one should be surprised at this revelation. The Obama White House has had it’s head in the sand since it took office. It has spent more money, and passed more bad legislation than almost any other administration, all the while ignoring the facts. The Obama stimulus has done nothing to help the economy, the job creation numbers have been inflated just as the real climate data was fudged, and then apparently tossed out like so many military absentee ballots.

The Obama Administration ran on an empty promise of Hope and Change, on the notion of making history and the fools of this country bought into it. The voters of this country, who elected this empty suit most likely won’t care about the lack of evidence of climate change, they didn’t care about lack of substance when they elected the chosen one.

What a crock of Sh#t.

It is time to take back the country…
