WEATHER OR CLIMATE?


WELL, IT DEPENDS…   If the weather is good, then it’s just weather.  
 If the weather is bad, then it’s “climate change”.

NOTE: For those of you who don’t know, the term “climate change” has replaced the term “global warming”.  The climate alarmist had to make that change when it became obvious the planet was not actually warming.



Since the 1980s, the hoax of “global warming” has existed to enrich those who heralded it and as the platform for the transfer of trillions from wealthy industrialized nations to those that have failed to keep pace with modernity.

There is no “global warming” of the kind described by heads of state, deceitful scientists, and, in particular, the United Nations where the hoax was originated. The recently concluded UN conference on climate change all but abandoned the hoax while advancing its one-world government agenda.

There is no “global warming” because the Earth is a decade into a predictable and natural cycle of cooling, not unlike previous ones, but one which may signal an equally predictable new ice age. The interval between the Earth’s previous ice ages has been 11,500 years and we are at the end of the current interglacial period.

HERE ARE FOUR ABSOLUTE FACTS ABOUT “CLIMATE CHANGE” YOU CAN TAKE TO THE BANK.


HOW BOUT NEWT???


Newt on Immigration

By Neal Boortz    11/29/2011


OK, Republicans. Since you’re so religious and all – it’s time for a little “come to Jesus meetin’”. If you’re not familiar with the term, click on the link. It’s time for a little harsh dressing down.
Do you realize what we have at stake in this election next year? This isn’t just about taxes, pork spending, social security benefits and repairing bridges. This is about saving our Republic. Do you know we’re already past our life expectancy? Economies and societies built on the rule of law, liberty and economic freedom have this troubling tendency to destroy themselves at around the 200 year mark. This happens when people figure out they can use the ballot box to get their hands on someone else’s stuff.
Well guess what, folks? We’re there. We’re past there. We’re on the ropes. We’re old – and durned near on our deathbed.

We have a president who was not raised as an American. Oh, I know. He’s a citizen and all that … but he was not infused during his formative years with how fortunate he was to have been born in this country and what it means to be an American. He lived in Indonesia, for crying out loud, for much of his childhood; that and Hawaii. Well guess what? I lived in Hawaii too, and I can tell you that as a student in Hawaiian schools you weren’t exactly saturated with American culture and history. Hawaiian history? Sure. And that’s understandable. Hawaiians are very proud of their heritage. But U.S. history? Only what the schools absolutely had to include. And that private school, Punahou, that Obama went to in Honolulu? Here’s another “guess what?” My sister taught there; right around the time that Barry was a student. Again – not a place where you’re going to learn what a blessing it is to be an American and a citizen of the greatest nation on earth … ever.

Our president thinks that American greatness comes from government. He believes that free enterprise is inherently evil. He is robbing us of our economic liberty as he institutes a command economy. He believes in using tax policy for income redistribution rather than raising the revenue needed to pay for the basic (Constitutional) functions of government. He said he was going to fundamentally transform the United States of America, and we stupidly didn’t ask him just how he planned to do that. Now we know. And now we know that for our children to have half a chance of improving on the standard of living that we have enjoyed – or even living as well as we have -- this man has to be sent back to a community organizing office behind a dry cleaner on the South Side of Chicago … STAT.

That brings us to Newt Gingrich and this little puddin’ storm over his comments on immigration. Newt suggested that we might not want to be rounding up people who have lived in this country – though illegally – for 25 years or so; during which time they raised families, started businesses, paid taxes and helped drive our economy; and ship them back to Mexico. As soon as those words were out of his mouth Michelle Bachmann – desperate for a way to ignite voters – started screeching about “amnesty.” In no time we had the ObamaMedia falling over itself to parrot the “amnesty” line and call Gingrich out on strikes.

Let the progs and libs play this thing any way they want … but you Replublicans; you GOPers … could you make a special effort and try to get serious here for a minute or two? Think! I’ve done it on occasion, and I can promise it’s not painful.

Do we need to enforce our immigration laws? Absolutely! Does the border with Mexico need to be secured? No doubt. And Gingrich has said he would do just that. But a bit of realism needs to creep into this conversation.

I love analogies, so try this one: You come home from work to find a pipe has broken. Your home is flooded. What is the FIRST thing you do? Do you sit there and argue with people about how you’re going to get all that water out of your home? No. The FIRST thing you do is shut off the water. The same logic applies to our immigration problem. The first thing we do is secure our borders. Gingrich says he will shut them down.

OK … so the flood has stopped. NOW you start to clean up the mess.

Republican voters need to mature a bit on this issue …. Not one of your candidates has actually articulated a plan deport all illegals. Not one. And do you know just why that is? Because every single GOP candidate, including Bachmann, knows full well that there is no way in the world we’re going to round up every illegal in this country and send them south.

Try to imagine what the world will think of us (and it does matter) if we suddenly start looking for people who entered this country illegally 25 years ago; people who then married an American citizen, started a business, raised several children – all citizens – and who is now a vital and integral part of the American economy and his community, not to mention a husband, father and grandfather. So we find these people, and start shipping them back to Mexico. Can you hear the screams from the international community?

Try these two words: “Ethnic cleansing.” Oh, I know. In reality we would just be expelling law-breakers … but you try to tell that to people we want to like and admire us that when they see that most of the people on the green busses have brown skin and dark hair.

I’m particularly amused by Bachmann’s (and other’s) claim that letting these people go through a process to gain legal residency status in America would be a “magnet” for more illegal immigration. Earth to Michelle. Our country is a magnet. Our way of life, our freedoms, our opportunities … all a magnet; a magnet much more powerful than giving some long-time illegal (but otherwise law-abiding) residents a break. What is Bachmann’s solution? Are we going to combat illegal immigration by making the United States a country to which nobody wants to emigrate? Seal the borders! Take the same actions to protect our borders that Mexico takes to protect theirs!

There’s a lot of anger on this issue. Understandable anger. We’ve had a succession of politicians and leaders who have steadfastly refused to do anything about what I call the Mexican invasion. And when a state (like Arizona) does try to address the situation, our federal government sides with the Mexican officials to go to court to get the enforcement actions stopped!

If it were not for the 17th Amendment to our Constitution, this story would read completely different .. but that’s another column.

So, Republicans --- instead of insisting that your candidate seek revenge on people who sought freedom and opportunity many, many years ago; try demanding that your candidate promise to do something to stem the tide as soon as he’s sworn in. Shut off the water. Close the borders. Once that’s been done we’ll seek out the illegals that pose a threat to our society and greet them with a clenched fist. Those who contribute to our society and want to join our family? Let’s greet them with an outstretched hand.

Graveyards of Wind Turbines


The truth about Wind Turbines.

Most people believe the propaganda they see every day in the main stream media.
I AM NOT MOST PEOPLE.   I search for the truth and post it here on this blog. 
  
You need to read this blog and quit being brainwashed by the main stream media propaganda.  
The main stream media tells you what the government WANTS you to believe.

The following article is an example of the truth of which I speak.


by: Jonathan Benson, staff writer, NaturalNews 

Literal beacons of the “green” energy movement, giant wind turbines have been one of the renewable energy sources of choice for the US government, which has spent billions of taxpayer dollars subsidizing their construction and use across the country. But high maintenance costs, high rates of failure, and fluctuating weather conditions that affect energy production render wind turbines expensive and inefficient, which is why more than 14,000 of them have since been abandoned.

Before government subsidies for the giant metals were cut or eliminated in many areas, wind farms were an energy boom business. But in the post-tax subsidy era, the costs of maintaining and operating wind turbines far outweighs the minimal power they generate in many areas, which has left a patchwork of wind turbine graveyards in many of the most popular wind farming areas of the US.

“Thousands of abandoned wind turbines littered the landscape of wind energy’s California ‘big three’ locations which include Altamont Pass, Tehachapin and San Gorgonio, considered among the world’s best wind sites,” writes Andrew Walden of the American Thinker. “In the best wind spots on earth, over 14,000 turbines were simply abandoned. Spinning, post-industrial junk which generates nothing but bird kills.”

IMPEACH JUSTICE KAGAN NOW


"Obamacare" Is Finally Headed To The Supreme Court, So Liberals Are Trying To Remove Justice Clarence Thomas From Hearing It -- But Liberal Justice Kagan Defended It For Obama! DEMAND Congress IMPEACH HER If She Doesn’t Recuse Herself Off Of This Case!

IS IT TIME TO IMPEACH A SITTING SUPREME COURT JUSTICE?


FINALLY, "Obamacare" is going to be going before the U.S. Supreme Court, to decide once and for all whether or not it's even Constitutional!

But radical Marxist anti-Constitution Liberal groups, like "People for the American Way," are trying to “Stack the deck” against us by getting Justice Clarence Thomas -- one of the most conservative Constitutionalists sitting on the high court -- REMOVED from the case!

But Clarence Thomas didn't do anything to warrant recusing himself from the Obamacare case -- it's the liberal Justice, Elena Kagan, who is BREAKING THE LAW if she doesn't recuse herself... and who should be IMPEACHED and REMOVED FROM THE BENCH if she doesn't step aside!

The moment it was announced that the U.S. Supreme Court would decide on the constitutionality of Obamacare, liberals jumped into action. They immediately targeted Justice Thomas, demanding an "ethics probe" into trumped up charges of "conflict of interest" regarding his wife's activism in conservative causes -- which she's been doing since before they were married.

But it's NOT Justice Thomas who should be investigated and even possibly impeached -- it's Justice Kagan!

Liberals are trying to throw up a "smokescreen" because THEY'RE SCARED. They know: We'll finally have a chance to drive a stake through the heart of Obamacare... UNLESS "THE
FIX IS IN" BECAUSE OF ONE LIBERAL JUSTICE WHO SHOULDN'T EVEN BE ALLOWED TO HEAR THIS CASE!

YOU READ THAT RIGHT: Obama-appointed Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan apparently LIED to Congress during her confirmation testimony, when she said she wasn't involved in preparing a legal defense of Obamacare during her tenure as Obama's Solicitor General.

Contradictory to her 2010 confirmation testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, recently released Department of Justice documents indicate that Justice Kagan actively participated with her Obama regime colleagues in formulating a defense of Obamacare -- which means she should be DISQUALIFIED from hearing challenges to its constitutionality.

And since it's being reported that she's refusing to recuse herself from the Obamacare case... SHE SHOULD BE IMPEACHED TO FORCE HER OFF OF IT!

Congress needs to FULLY INVESTIGATE whether Kagan lied to Congress, and whether she needs to recuse herself instead of being allowed to hear the upcoming case on Obamacare.

IT'S TREASON!


THIS ADMINISTRATION IS GUILTY OF TREASON 

John Holdren, President Obama's science "czar," has apparently been collaborating with the Chinese with U.S. technology---even though Congress specifically prohibited that activity in a bill signed by his boss in April of this year, Barack Obama!

This entire escapade has a stench of genuine TREASON!   Judging by the White House reaction, Dr. Holdren was acting under the approval and protection of Barack Obama.

The White House claims they have the constitutional authority to do this!

This is incomprehensible! Barack Obama is stonewalling a charge of possible "treason" against his science czar, John Holdren, making him equally culpable in this crime!

This is a very, very serious charge. The science czar just dismisses the allegations!

U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) last week in a hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, came against the science "czar."

The committee was listening to testimony about
China's espionage in the United States and "the violation of the law by the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy."

Obama's Office of Science and Technology Policy Director (Dr. John Holdren) is aiding and abetting China's Space program by providing for them U.S. technology.  This is reminiscent of when President Bill Clinton allowed the giving away of our space technology to
China over a decade ago.  As a direct result, China improved their ability to launch and attack with long-range missiles and rockets!

Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA) sternly admonished: "The
United States should not cooperate with the People's Liberation Army to help develop China's space program."

By giving
U.S. technology to China, Mr. Holdren is guilty of TREASON.  That's why there needs to be an immediate Congressional investigation!

This crime isn't just about a science czar being a traitor. This is also about the constitutional authority of the President of the United States.

THE ATF IS BECOMING A JOKE



COMMON KITCHEN SCRUB PADS NOW CONSIDERED A FIREARM


The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Firearms Technology Branch has deemed “Chore Boy copper cleaning pads, along with fiberglass insulation,” a firearm, subject to registration and a $200 transfer tax, an official letter obtained recently by Gun Rights Examiner reveals.  The response to an attorney inquiry by John R. Spencer, Chief, Firearms Technology Branch, offers one of the more creatively restrictive assessments since ATF declared a shoestring to be a machinegun.

The rationale Spencer uses:
A silencer is a firearm per U.S. Code, subject to National Firearms Act registration and transfer tax requirements.

“[S]ound/gas absorbing materials manufactured from Chore Boy copper cleaning pads, along with fiberglass insulation, constitute a silencer…”

THIS IS NOT A JOKE


JOE vs. JOSE


There are two families: "Joe Legal" and "Jose Illegal".
Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California.

Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes $25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.

Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash "under the table".

Ready? Now pay attention...

Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000.00 per week, or $52,000.00 per year. Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe Legal now has $31,231.00.

Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.00 per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has $31,200.00.

Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $24,031.00.

Jose Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and local clinics and emergency hospitals at a cost of $0.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.

Joe Legal makes too much money and is not eligible for food stamps or welfare. Joe Legal pays $500.00 per month for food, or $6,000.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $18,031.00.

Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps, WIC and welfare. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.

Joe Legal pays rent of $1,200.00 per month, or $14,400.00 per year. Joe Legal now has 9,631 .00.

Jose Illegal receives a $500.00 per month Federal Rent Subsidy. Jose Illegal pays out that $500.00 per month, or $6,000.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $ 31,200.00.

Joe Legal pays $200.00 per month, or $2,400.00 for car insurance. Some of that is uninsured motorist insurance. Joe Legal now has $7,231.00.

Jose Illegal says, "We don't need no stinkin' insurance!" and still has $31,200.00.

Joe Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, etc...

Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month...

Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after work.

Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.

Joe Legal's and Jose Illegal's children both attend the same elementary school. Joe Legal pays for his children's lunches, while Jose Illegal's children get a government sponsored lunch. Jose Illegal's children have an after school
ESL program. Joe Legal's children go home...

Now, when they reach college age, Joe Legal's kids may not get into a
State School and may not qualify for scholarships, grants or other tuition help, even though Joe has been paying for State Schools through his taxes, while Jose Illegal's kids "go to the head of the class" because they are a minority.

Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.

Do you get it, now?

If you vote for or support any politician that supports illegal aliens, then you are part of the problem!

Wisconsin has the right idea...


Maybe the other states need to follow suit?!?

Remember the teacher's union strikes in Wisconsin last spring? Look what has happened since:
The Democrats and Liberals are keeping really quiet about this. Is There any wonder why Obama stayed away from Wisconsin on his latest Campaign Tour (Listening Tour, Cough! Cough!), even though he was right next door. Wisconsin is the last place they want to talk about -- just like New Jersey !

Remember the violent and disgusting demonstrations over Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker doing away with collective bargaining for Teacher's unions? The results are in.
And here are the results.

Some school districts went from a $400,000 deficit to a $1,500,000 surplus as a result. They are even hiring new teachers, not firing like the Liberals said would happen. Why?

It seems that the insurance company that provided all the "so-called" benefits to the teachers was an insurance company owned and operated by the teacher's union. Since the outfit was guaranteed to get the insurance business from the teachers, and the State had to pay for it (not the teachers) the insurance company was increasing annual costs every single year to become the most expensive insurance company in the state. Then the company was donating millions and millions of dollars to its favorite democrat politicians who, when they got elected, guaranteed to keep funding the union's outrageous costs. In other words, the insurance company was a "pass through" for Wisconsin taxpayer money directly to the democrat politicians.

Nice racket, and this is the racket that is going on in every single State that allows collective bargaining. No wonder the States are taking it away. Now the State of Wisconsin is free to put the insurance contract out for bids and, lo and behold, they have saved so much money it has turned deficits into surplus amounts. As a result, none of the teachers had to be laid off, everyone got a raise, etc., etc., and the taxpayers of Wisconsin don't have to pay more taxes to fund the union's political ambitions.

If you weren't aware of the reasons Gov. Walker was fighting to take away collective bargaining, it gives you an idea of the problem the Republican Party has. Outside of one or two, none of them know how to speak up and explain properly what the problem was. We could sure use a Ronald Reagan now, someone who could explain things for people to understand, since we know that people don't like to read anymore.

New Company Policy


We are not hiring until Obama is gone

WACO, Ga.—A west Georgia business owner is stirring up controversy with signs he posted on his company’s trucks, for all to see as the trucks roll up and down roads, highways and interstates:
“New Company Policy: We are not hiring until Obama is gone.”

“Can’t afford it,” explained the employer, Bill Looman, Tuesday evening. “I’ve got people that I want to hire now, but I just can’t afford it. And I don’t foresee that I’ll be able to afford it unless some things change in D.C.”

Looman made it clear that he is not refusing to hire to make some political point; it’s that he doesn’t believe he can hire anyone, because of the economy. And he blames the Obama administration.

“The way the economy’s running, and the way my business has been hampered by the economy, and the policies of the people in power, I felt that it was necessary to voice my opinion, and predict that I wouldn’t be able to do any hiring,” he said.

Looman did receive some unexpected attention not long after he put up his signs and Facebook photos. He said someone, and he thinks he knows who it was, reported him to the FBI as a threat to national security. He said the accusation filtered its way through the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and finally the Secret Service. Agents interviewed him.

“The Secret Service left here, they were in a good mood and laughing,” Looman said. “I got the feeling they thought it was kind of ridiculous, and a waste of their time.”

So Bill Looman is keeping the signs up, and the photos up—stirring up a lot of debate.”

Don't give up, Mr. Looman, Obama will spend next Thanksgiving packing for his January 20, 2013 exit!

ERIC HOLDER MUST GO.


If he refuses to resign, Mr. Obama must FIRE him immediately!

Now presidential candidate Rick Perry has joined a host of others to call for the resignation or the firing of Attorney General Eric Holder over Fast and Furious. Previously, Michelle Bachman had called for his resignation. At least 51 Congressmen have called for his resignation!

Rick Perry urged: "Mr. Holder's proclaimed ignorance leaves Americans to draw one of two conclusions: Either he is guilty of extraordinary bureaucratic incompetence or he is guilty of a cover-up meant to shield him from the consequences of an operation that has left at least one federal agent dead and continues to imperil many more!"

"Either way, it is high time for Mr. Holder to step down. If he refuses to resign, Mr. Obama must
FIRE him immediately!"

Perry went on to explain: "Hundreds of Fast and Furious firearms have been implicated in criminal activity, and another 1,400 firearms are on the street because the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives engaged in gun-walking - the selling of firearms to straw purchasers in an attempt to locate major weapons traffickers in
Mexico. This controversial tactic, involving thousands of weapons, means that brave law enforcement personnel along the border remains at risk."

"As details come to light, a larger shadow has been cast on Mr. Holder. When initially asked under oath to say when he first knew about Fast and Furious, Mr. Holder told the House Judiciary Committee on May 3, 'I'm not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.'

"But the evidence casts serious doubt over that claim. First, President Obama had commented publicly on the operation, noting on March 22 - more than a month before Mr. Holder's sworn statement - that an inspector general had been assigned to investigate the matter."

But, apparently, Attorney General Eric Holder could care less! This past week, he has been off to the
Caribbean for some Attorney General meetings---wow, what a vacation, in spite of the seriousness of the allegations against him! NOW, there are at least 51 Congressmen who have called for his resignation or firing!

Mr. Holder continues to DEFY CONGRESS! His stonewalling of Congress is unprecedented! Yet, the Obama administration continues to uphold his stances! Barack Obama and Eric Holder go way back. Even now, as Holder faces his final moments as Attorney General, Obama continues to praise his "great work as Attorney General."

Eric Holder is spending a week in the
Caribbean in the name of improving law enforcement. Yet, some in Congress say it's a junket that should have been scraped under President Obama's new austerity program.

More importantly, at least 51
U.S. Congressmen have signed up for calling for Eric Holder's resignation over Fast and Furious!

Arizona Republican Representative Trent Franks said that throughout the course of the congressional investigation, Holder has stonewalled investigators and it's time for someone new to lead the Justice Department. "The idea of 'we're going to wait for a subpoena, then we're going to send you some of the documents, we're going to withhold some others, tell us exactly what you want - if you find it first, then we'll tell you if we have it. It's something they continue to do, stringing along, and with all this - keep this in mind - the guns are still out there. The guns are still being used for crimes."

 
"The American people deserve more from the nation's top law enforcement official. His testimony before Congress not only contradicted itself but raised more questions than it answered. This is unacceptable and the Attorney General should be held accountable for his actions."

Presidential candidate Perry continued to press the issue:
"Under the attorney general's leadership, our nation's top law enforcement agency proactively armed some of the most dangerous criminal organizations in
North America, and at least one American is dead as a direct result. The damage is done to Mr. Holder's credibility is irreparable. Moreover, Mr. Holder never apologized to - or even spoke with - the family of slain Border Patrol Agent Terry until he was confronted by U.S. Senator John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, earlier this month, nearly a year after Terry's murder."

"America simply cannot tolerate an attorney general who arms the very criminals he is supposed to protect us from and then refuses to comfort the grieving parents of a slain Border Patrol agent. Nor can we tolerate a president who lacks the courage to take decisive action in restoring justice to the Department of Justice. IT IS TIME FOR MR. HOLDER TO GO!"

He is not responsive to the Congress, who represents the people he serves! Stonewalling Congress is the "modus operendi" of the attorney general. U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley said last week that Attorney General Eric Holder is AGAIN continuing to stonewall congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious. This time, Holder is refusing to provide 11 of the 12 witnesses Grassley and House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa have requested be made available for interviews.

Grassley reported to the Senate Judiciary Committee executive business meeting on Thursday: "We have requested 12 Justice Department witnesses be made available for transcribed interviews. Despite the department's promises of good faith cooperation, only one witness has been provided so far - former U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke. The department has refused to schedule interviews with any of the other 11 witnesses. That's not the good faith cooperation I was promised, and it is unacceptable."

Even the leftist Washington Post wants to shut this down. They admitted that Holder walked around the truth; but somehow, to them, that doesn't matter! They reported yesterday: "Without a doubt, the operation was a debacle, and it has led to untold bloodshed and friction with
Mexico. The ATF's acting chief has been reassigned, and subpoenas are flying on Capitol Hill."

More importantly than LYING to Congress---he is guilty of being an "Accessory to Murder!" The communications tell the story of the lies!

Eric Holder must resign! Plain and simple. How can we have the nation's top law enforcement person lying to Congress? He must be held accountable.

OCCUPY PHOTOS

OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRATS DON'T WANT YOU TO SEE THESE.




FOLLOW-UP ON PIPELINE POKER



It is no secret that the Obama administration supports higher gas prices.  
 
The Keystone XL pipeline would have provided more stability in oil supply and pricing at a time when crude oil from Mexico and Venezuela is declining.  The pipeline would have provided refiners in the Gulf region with a secure supply—and a supply from a friendly source. Less supply means higher prices.

Without the XL pipeline on the horizon, prices are predicted to increase as they did following the delay announcement.  Higher oil prices translate to higher prices at the pump. With the cover of environmental concerns as the cause, President Obama could put the pipeline off and raise gas prices without the average person realizing his responsibility for the increasing costs.  With higher gasoline prices, the Government Motors Chevy Volt becomes more attractive—giving the president a win/win.

So President Obama chose to appease the environmental base and raise gas prices rather than to support the jobs that he claims to want.  Additionally, the pipeline would have brought foreign money into the United States through increased exports of refined gasoline and provided a strong signal to the world markets that America is putting a long-term sustained strategy for expanding the domestic oil supplies we will need for decades to come.
 
TransCanada expected that the pipeline would be routinely approved—all previous cross-border pipeline requests have been granted.  They went through all the open houses and public meetings, did the environmental impact studies, and endured the most exhaustive and detailed review ever conducted for a crude oil pipeline.  Nebraska, and most of the United States, is already a web of pipelines.  However, they chose the cheapest route for the Keystone XL pipeline—which took it through the environmentally controversial area of Nebraska’s Sand Hills.  By choosing the short route, rather than adding about 250 miles of pipeline, they gave the environmentalists an unlikely alliance: Nebraska’s Republican lawmakers and traditionally conservative farmers.

America is in an economic war, we need what the Keystone XL pipeline has to offer. Keep the pressure on President Obama. Now that TransCanada has agreed to re-routing, they’ve called his bluff. Call the White House (202-456-1111) and tell President Obama to expedite the review and approve the Keystone XL pipeline.

PIPELINE POKER


The President’s Proposed Pipeline Political Poker Problem

On the one hand, Obama needs the Union vote, and the unions want the Keystone Pipeline for the jobs it will create.  On the other hand, Obama needs the Environmentalists vote and they are adamantly opposed to any and all new pipelines.

The original proposed route of the pipeline from Canada to Cushing Oklahoma would run right through, or rather above, the Ogallala aquifer in Nebraska.  Needless to say, this had Nebraska politicians as well as most citizens of Nebraska siding with environmentalist in opposing the project.

Obama, who has built a career on voting “present”, decided to pander for votes from both sides by deferring a final decision until after the election.  TransCanada Corp. appears to be a better poker player than Obama.  They played the perfect hand in the on going game of pipeline poker by agreeing to reroute the pipeline around the area of the aquifer within days of Obama’s announcement.  If this is not acceptable, they intend to look to China as a market for the oil.

It's unlikely anyone that the White House, U.S. State Department or the Nebraska state legislature expected to see TransCanada go “all in” with a solution as quickly as it did.

Nebraska state politicians are now saying they want the State Department to expedite the review process, Obama's hand has been exposed in a way he never imagined.

The mistake Obama made was that his excuse for the delay was tied strictly to the issue of the routing.  Obama had said in a television interview the risk of water contamination trumped a few thousand jobs.
But with TransCanada coming out with a viable option which is backed by Nebraska Democrats and Republicans, and the unions, the White House has been caught flat-footed.

The response from the State Department, predictably, has been that it won't expedite the review.  This makes it pretty obvious that this was a decision based solely on politics and pollsters -- not economics and energy security.

The same has to be said about the environmental protesters.  Their issue, apparently, was with routing of the pipe through the aquifer.  Now that this is off the table, which presumably means the need for protest against Keystone has similarly disappeared, the environmentalists should go bother someone else -- the coal folks, perhaps.  I have read that coal-fired power is responsible for 65 per cent of Nebraska's electricity.

But that's not happening.  The only conclusion that can be drawn from this is that the environmental protest was never about the routing through the aquifer -- it was about getting off oil.

A SHORT VIDEO


EVERY “OCCUPY PROTESTER” SHOULD BE FORCED TO WATCH THIS.


NATIONAL SELF DESTRUCTION


ARE WE LAZY?

Last week at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, Obama explained that, "We've been a little bit lazy over the last couple of decades.  He thinks we’re lazy.  I wish it was that simple.  The truth is, in the case of Conservatives, the biggest problem is APATHY.  I have been using this blog for over four years now to try to build a fire under the butts of apathetic conservatives, to little or no avail. 
 
The problem is even more serious with Liberals, or Progressives, or Marxist, or whatever they are currently calling themselves.  They are marching behind Obama in lock step with closed eyes, closed ears, and closed minds.   It never ceases to amazed me just how blind they are, how na├»ve, ignorant, credulous, and unable to discern fact from fiction, reality from fantasy.


For Gods sake people just how much more proof do you need that our country is on the path of purposeful destruction?

Service Employees International Union (SEIU), with its 2.1 million dues paying members announced on November 16, 2011, “with great pride and a sense of purpose,” that they were endorsing President Barack Obama for re-election.  They said “President Obama is the only candidate for president who shares our vision of America as a land of opportunity for everyone. We need a leader willing to fight for the needs of the 99 percent, and stand with hard working families to say that the world’s wealthiest corporations must pay their fair share.”

Is this the vision of socialist America where almost 50 percent of citizens already pay no federal income tax and receive welfare from the producers? Is this the vision where pot-smoking youth occupy our parks demanding handouts while preaching Marxism?  Is this the vision of America where working Americans support millions of illegal aliens who take advantage of our lax law enforcement when foreigners cross the border illegally, drop anchor babies, use our emergency rooms for medical care, our schools and universities for educating their children, and take jobs from American citizens?

Obama does not fight for the needs of all Americans, he only fights for re-election votes and his needs like golfing, vacationing, entertaining lavishly at taxpayer expense, and non-stop campaigning.     He punishes companies that are not supporting his plan for America and rewards companies who have contributed heavily to his campaign coffers.

Congressman Frank Wolf remarked on the floor of the House on November 16, 2011, “General Electric, the nation’s largest corporation, had a very good year in 2010 but GE paid zero taxes in 2010. At the same time, the Congressional Research Service found that the October 2008 issue of China Taxation magazine published top corporate taxpayers in the commercial services sector. The Beijing subsidiary of GE was number 32.”

The head of President Obama’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, GE chairman, Jeffrey Immelt, announced recently that the headquarters of its 115-year old X-ray business would be moved from Wisconsin to Beijing.

Fifty percent of GE’s workforce is overseas. A joint venture between GE and the Chinese firm AVIC was announced to develop avionics systems for jets.  Shouldn’t the president make sure jobs are created here rather than China?

Is it a good idea to provide the Chinese military with advanced avionics technology at a time when they are developing aeronautics and space exploration programs?  Is this not a national security issue?

The SEIU memo continues, “Our economy and democracy have been taken over by the wealthiest one percent.”  The truth is, wealthy individuals are being threatened and blackmailed by this administration on a daily basis.  Our country has been taken over by Marxists and anti-American individuals who goal is the failure of America from a super-power to a third world nation.

The SEIU memo to its members says, “These bankers and CEOs have used their wealth and excessive political influence to treat our state and federal governments like their personal cash drawer – spending lavishly on elections and then pressuring legislators to give them even more instead of creating jobs. It shows the results.”   DUH!!  It was unions that spent hundreds of millions of dollars to elect Democrats to Congress and President Obama in order to influence the outcome of legislation favoring and benefiting unions?

And it was ACORN protesting outside the homes of bankers and CEOs with the intent of shaming them into giving mortgage loans to people with shady credit scores?  And it was Democrats in Congress that were urging bankers to make these loans?   This move is what exacerbated the housing bubble crisis?
The reasons corporations are not creating jobs is not that complicated.   It’s because they are overregulated, the EPA is denying permits, business confidence under this administration is at its lowest ever, and corporations are afraid to hire because of the uncertainty of taxation and the foreseen high cost of Obamacare per employee.

SEIU’s president says, “We know there needs to be a pathway to citizenship for every immigrant worker.”  Translation; The left wants amnesty for illegal aliens because they want new cardholders paying dues to unions and new automatic Democrat voters.  It does not matter to liberals that these illegal aliens are taking jobs away from Americans, and they don’t care that the majority of Americans do not want amnesty.

Our President has had three years, a few billion dollars job stimulus money, and many opportunities to create jobs.  It should be obvious to anyone not totally brain dead that it was never his intent to create jobs – he likes people being dependent on the government dole.   People who cannot find jobs, especially young people with college degrees, have nobody to blame but themselves for voting for Obama in 2008 and in many cases by choosing unmarketable degrees.

No matter how many times Obama repeats his canned rhetoric, none of his plans, schemes, bailouts, stimulus have worked, none of them. He will not turn things around because even if he intended to, he does not know how.  I have become convinced he never had any intention of doing so.   If he is re-elected, the economy will take an irreversible slide into bankruptcy.  We will become the banana republic he planned to “fundamentally transform” us into all along.

If you haven’t been reading my blog posts, don’t stop with just this one.  Go right down the list and read eight or ten of them.  I think you will find them to be very informative.  I do a lot of research for the information I post on this blog.



OBAMA’S JOBS PLAN


Remember all that stimulus money (our tax money) that was going to created all those jobs by rebuilding our nations roads and bridges?

OBAMACORN


After Fox News revealed that ACORN was behind the Occupy Wall Street protests, the group is frantically shredding documents and urging their members not to speak to the media. ACORN, operating as New York Communities for Change, is doing everything they can to cover their dirty tracks.

The radical rabble rousers clearly have something to hide. New York Communities for Change has ordered their employees not to use their cell phones, text or make landline calls in their NYC headquarters.

The liberal community organizers have even installed high tech security cameras to monitor the perimeter outside their building. Their paranoid security measures make organized crime compounds look easily assailable.

Remember back in 2010 when ACORN was supposedly de-funded? WE WERE LIED TO! ACORN is still alive and well - they just splintered into smaller organizations and changed their names. The ACORN offshoots are like cockroaches, when you destroy one faction... dozens more pop up.

VOTER FRAUD is the name of ACORN's game. They're just getting their feet wet in the Occupy Wall Street protests. Their real goal is to steal the 2012 elections by flooding polling booths with illegitimate voters.

ACORN likely will use voter intimidation tactics and fraud to keep Obama in office. Stop ACORN from HIJACKING the 2012 Elections! TELL CONGRESS TO DEFUND THE RADICAL LEFTIST GROUP "ACORN" PERMANENTLY!

Don't forget...ACORN was under investigation for election fraud and related offenses in nearly 20 states, for crimes ranging from false voter registrations and illegal voting, to identity theft and records tampering, to using felons as registration workers.

ACORN will stop at nothing to ensure our Community Organizer in Chief, Barack Obama is re-elected in 2012



SHOTS FIRED AT THE WHITE HOUSE



The identity of the man responsible for firing those shots last week has been made public by the D.C. police, but one little fact is being buried by every news report about this guy. 

He is 21 years old, his name is Oscar Ramiro Ortega, and he is from Idaho.  What the main stream media is not telling you is that he is, or rather was, one of the Occupy Wall Street participants. If this nut was a member of the Tea Party movement, it would be headlines in newspapers all across the country!  But, the fact that this shooter was part of the Occupy movement seems somehow unimportant to the Media.

In fact, there wouldn’t even have to be any link to the Tea Party for the Media to immediately jump to blaming the Tea Party movement for a shooting.  If you’ll remember the outrageous accusations that the media made that the nut that shot Gabrielle Giffords was a Tea Partier or was driven to his criminal act by the “violent rhetoric of the right,” you’ll remember that shooter Loughner ended up having no real political point of view and was not connected even tangentially with the Tea Party.

Dictator Obama or President Obama?


Obama is governing more and more like a dictator. 

It has become quite obvious he wants to be Dictator of the United States instead of President.  Presidential power in the U.S. has limitations which are intended to require American Presidents to compromise and work in concert with fellow legislators to achieve their ends.  Presidents are also bound by the rule of law and have to work within it.  Dictators have no such restrictions.

When Obama says he can’t wait for the rule of law to implement his agenda.   He rejects the entire American political system and places it in jeopardy.  When Obama governs by Executive Order instead of by Legislative process, as he has done all along and as he has pledged to continue doing, he effectively turns the United States into a dictatorship with him as the dictator.  Obama has bypassed Congress and issued nearly one hundred Executive Orders so far, and he has said there are many more to come.  These are not the acts of an American President.  These are the acts of an American Dictator and it is difficult to imagine a more serious threat to freedom and democracy in the United States than this.

Congress must stop him in his tracks and re-establish the rule of law, constitutional authority and the system of checks and balances and separation of powers.  If it doesn’t there will be no stopping him and you can kiss freedom and democracy in the U.S. goodbye.  Obama’s contempt for the rule of law, constitutional authority and the system of checks and balances and separation of powers is blatant.   That is completely unacceptable for a President of the United States and he must be called to task now, while it is still possible and while there still is a United States.   Obama is not simply eroding the rule of law, constitutional authority and the system of checks and balances and separation of powers… he is purposefully and blatantly trying to eliminate them.

Congress is far too slow in acting on this threat, but it appears they are beginning to wake up, and a constitutional showdown is looming in the U.S.  It is a showdown Congress and the American people cannot lose.  If they do, it really will be Dictator Obama instead of President Obama and American freedom and democracy will be a thing of the past.





De-Christianizing Dr. King


De-Christianizing Dr. King 

By Peter Heck
On the surface, I suppose it does sound incredible: they created a monument to honor an influential Baptist minister and they omitted any reference to God or Jesus in the featured quotations throughout the memorial.  The monument in question, of course, is the recently unveiled tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Washington, D.C.  That would be “Reverend” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to be precise.
Perhaps the argument is that Biblical references were rejected because the memorial was to focus not on his work as a pastor, but rather as a civil rights crusader.  But then again, to Dr. King, the two were inseparable.  It was his faith in Jesus Christ, his belief in transcendent Moral Authority, and his allegiance to Divine Law that motivated his activism.  Not to mention that his civil rights speeches were peppered with Scriptural references as the justification for his positions.

Take the famous “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” where King explained that, “A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law.”  The entire foundation for the King civil rights movement was predicated upon the existence of the Biblical God and His eternal justice.  Conversely, the entire foundation of the secular left today is predicated upon the non-existence of the Biblical God and the acceptance of moral relativism.  Therefore, it is not surprising that the modern liberal voices who have hijacked King’s movement designed a tribute to him that ignored that which was most pivotal to his cause.

Commenting on this duplicity, Dr. Jerry Newcombe explained that, “one of the aspects of political correctness that is plaguing our times is that the elites think that all references to God and Jesus have to be expunged from all public places.”

While I wholeheartedly agree with Dr. Newcombe, I think this particular example goes a bit deeper.  I think it’s clear that the purpose of this monument was to further imbed into our national psyche a caricature of Dr. King that the left has been creating for the last few decades.  By scandalously projecting their own modern liberal interpretations of ‘social justice’ onto him, they have redesigned King to fit the mold of a secular humanist warrior.  We shouldn’t be surprised then that the monument they created in his honor omitted the things that were most important to him.  Their objective was never to celebrate the legacy of the real Dr. King — who he was, what he believed and what he did — given that those things contradict who they are, what they believe, and what they are trying to do.

And you don’t have to look to a stone sculpture to be able to understand that reality.  One of the self-proclaimed heirs to the King mantle, Jesse Jackson, recently suggested that the antics of the Occupy Wall Street protestors in Atlanta were, “an extension of the struggle for civil rights” initiated by King.  How outrageous.  How in the world can the peaceful non-violence strategy applied by Dr. King in the effort to achieve equal justice under the law possibly be tied to the violent, social upheaval produced by citizens who already have equal justice but are seeking equal outcomes through forced government redistribution (aka socialism)?

Jackson’s false comparison is only slightly less offensive than those who claim to see a connection between Dr. King’s street prayer vigils and the grown men prancing around American city streets in tutus and G-strings, flinging pixie dust and condoms at their gay pride parades.  King preached fidelity to Biblical morality, something eschewed by the sexual anarchists of the left.

This reinvention of Dr. King by liberals is not without consequence.  While King dreamed of the day when ours was a colorblind society, the left seems intent on bringing color into every political discussion.  In just the last two years, liberals have used race to condemn conservatives for their opposition to high unemployment, increased debt, stimulus spending, climate change policies, the occupy Wall Street protests, and for the mere observation that food stamp usage has skyrocketed under President Obama.  And when conservatives reasonably objected to such silly accusations, liberals pitifully declared that denying racism is actually a potent form of racism.  Beyond maddening, while the left continues making more out of the color of a man’s skin than the content of his character, Dr. King’s dream slips further and further beyond our grasp.

It stands to reason that if we invert our understanding of who King was, we will fail to achieve his lofty and admirable vision of racial harmony and brotherhood.  That’s a far bigger problem than just a Godless statue.
