I have blogged often on the global warming hoax. You see I recognized it for what it was immediately. These same leftists tried the same stunt in the 70s, claiming that we were all going to die in a new ice age unless we pay more taxes. It was absurd then, and it is just as absurd now. And the fact that my elementary school took a week to scare the crap out of me and my peers, left a bitter taste in my mouth for decades.

I am not a scientist, but I am a rational person who believes in a loving Creator. God created this planet and all the remarkable interrelated forces that govern things like weather. It would be virtually impossible, even if man put all his efforts into it, to destroy this planet. He is a very small organism living on a massively large globe. Take a plane ride across America or over the pond, and you will better understand how big this planet really is.

But even if you reject a divine presence, if you take a step back, you will quickly realize how insignificant the role of man has, compared to global and cosmic sources on the planet. The fact that these so-called "global warming" scientists refuse to even consider the sun, earth's core (Al Gore claimed it is a million degrees down there), gravity, cosmic radiation and a hundred other factors in climate change, shows their unwillingness to uncover the truth.

For almost two decades we have had the "global warming" hysteria jammed down our throats. Big Al Gore has forced schools to watch his laughable propaganda film and produced numerous books promoting this hoax. His motivation is quite simply to profit off of the hoax both directly and indirectly, investing in "green" trading and companies.

For the scientists and politicians that have continued this nonsense, its both financial and political. This was an easy way to force otherwise free countries into a more socialized world order. Bring on climate guilt and regulate and tax them into submission. The plan was working pretty well until certain people started asking tough questions.

But now the jig is finally up. Someone gained access to hundreds of emails and documents that detail the fraud and manipulation of science. But I'll let Christopher Monckton, one of the heroes of the so-called denier movement take it from here:

The tiny, close-knit clique of climate scientists who invented and now drive the “global warming” fraud — for fraud is what we now know it to be — tampered with temperature data so assiduously that, on the recent admission of one of them, land temperatures since 1980 have risen twice as fast as ocean temperatures. One of the thousands of emails recently circulated by a whistleblower at the University of East Anglia, where one of the world’s four global-temperature datasets is compiled, reveals that data were altered so as to prevent a recent decline in temperature from showing in the record. In fact, there has been no statistically significant “global warming” for 15 years — and there has been rapid and significant cooling for nine years.

Worse, these arrogant fraudsters — for fraudsters are what we now know them to be — have refused, for years and years and years, to reveal their data and their computer program listings. Now we know why: As a revealing 15,000-line document from the computer division at the Climate Research Unit shows, the programs and data are a hopeless, tangled mess. In effect, the global temperature trends have simply been made up. Unfortunately, the British researchers have been acting closely in league with their U.S. counterparts who compile the other terrestrial temperature dataset — the GISS/NCDC dataset. That dataset too contains numerous biases intended artificially to inflate the natural warming of the 20th century.

Viscount Monckton on Climategate: ‘They Are Criminals’ (PJM Exclusive)

I have never, and will never deny that the climate of the earth does change. I will absolutely fight the concept that CO2 is a pollutant, or in any way causes global warming. Just the opposite, CO2 increases in the atmosphere FOLLOW periods of higher temperatures since the majority of CO2 is in the oceans and released as they evaporate. CO2 is never the driver.

We have gone through ice ages and significant warm periods as well. We seem to be in a cooling phase at present. In the not too distant past, they grew grapes in England and the Norse settled a place called GREENLAND that ain't so green anymore. During those times there were no SUVs and no industrial output of any significance. The changes in global climate are completely natural and cyclical. And in some cases, can be quite beneficial to mankind.

Nevertheless, and even with mounting evidence of a substantial fraud and bad science, world leaders are gathering next month in Copenhagen to yet again force some global warming hoax-inspired wealth distribution on the Western world. This is also what is behind the very bad legislation called Cap & Trade (Cap & Tax). Both will substantially cripple our economy, as we have already seen in Europe among nations that have embraced this nonsense. And the funny part, cutting CO2 emissions will do nothing to change the climate.

Now that we have put to bed this non issue, maybe we can focus on some more important things like winning the war against terrorism and reducing taxes so our economy will get out of the crapper.

PDS and the State Run Media...

Sarah Palin's Going Rogue book tour is in full swing and the liberals in the media are in full meltdown mode. Here are just a few for grins:

The most damaging pieces of legislation ever considered in Washington, Obamacare, has over 4,000 pages between the House and Senate versions. Going Rogue has just over 400 pages. The Associated Press has assigned 2 reporters to Obamacare and 11 to "fact check" Sarah Palin.
Accountability Journalism

And then you have reporterette Norah O'Donnell from something called MSNBC badgering a 17-year old fan of Sarah Palin. You must watch the video to see the absurdity of the reporter with notes prepared to pounce on someone waiting to meet Palin. They are simply out of control. The girl handled the attack quite well and O'Donnell comes off as an abusive nitwit.

Here is the young girl's version of the events.

I know it pains them to write this, but Going Rogue sold 300,000 copies on the first day and the print run has been increased from 1.5 million to 2.5 million. Go Sarah!

What would the world be without "open-minded" liberals? San Francisco booksellers would rather lose money than go 'Rogue'

Obama uses troops for photo-ops. Sarah donates the proceeds of her visit to the Fort Hood families. Which leader really loves the troops?

Oprah gets highest ratings in 10 years with Sarah Palin.

Liberal nitwits try and stage a smear campaign against Sarah, but instead are caught red-handed. Let this be a lesson, whenever you hear a negative story about a Conservative, look for the source and the truth. Truth to a liberal is like light to a vampire.

November 15, 1777...

After 16 MONTHS of debate, the Continental Congress approved the Articles of Confederation for ratification by the states. This would lay the groundwork for the Constitution. Among the guarantees in the Articles:

"Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every power, jurisdiction, and right, which is not by this Confederation expressly delegated."

Now, think about Nancy Pelosi and this present Congress ramming through 2,000 pages of jibberish that not one single Congress critter has read in its final form - in the middle of the night and on a weekend.

Our Founding Fathers understood that it took time and debate before decisons could be made and laws passed. They rightly feared an all-powerful centralized government and took this responsibility seriously.

We should all be aware that if/when Obamacare passes, the Federal government will have the power to regulate EVERY aspect of your life. Why? Because EVERYTHING you eat, drink, breathe and do may have an impact on your health care needs today, or tomorrow. The government will regulate your life to control and minimize how much this monstrosity will cost. Do you really want some czar or bureaucrat telling you how to live your life?

This is not poltics. It is YOUR FREEDOM that is at stake.

There is a reason I have this Thomas Jefferson quote at the top of my blog. It is still 100% true 200 years later.

"I am for a government rigorously frugal and simple. Were we directed from Washington when to sow, when to reap, we should soon want bread."

11 Freakin' Writers!

From the great Mark Steyn:

Wow. That's ten "AP writers" plus Calvin Woodward, the AP writer whose twinkling pen honed the above contributions into the turgid sludge of the actual report. That's 11 writers for a 695-word report. What on? Obamacare? The Iranian nuke program? The upcoming trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed?

No, the Associated Press assigned 11 writers to "fact-check" Sarah Palin's new book, and in return the 11 fact-checkers triumphantly unearthed six errors. That's 1.8333333 writers for each error.

The economy is in the toilet. Over 17% unemployment. Obama is bowing to world leaders. Iran is shooting us the finger. Congress is trying to destroy our wonderful health care system. And the AP thinks its more important to sick 11 writers on a private citizen's literary endeavor?

I am speechless. Its almost comical how crazy and unhinged the left is when it comes to Sarah. Heck, I may just order a few more copies simply to give as gifts. The sales numbers for her book are already off the charts and it has not even shipped.

Oh, here is another fun nugget:

HuffPo Ponders Separate NY Times Bestsellers List for 'Conservative Blockbusters' - Liberals never win in the arena of ideas, so therefore they want to change the rules. Typical. They fail to realize that this is still, largely, a Conservative nation.

Hope and Spare Change!

I was going to blog about Fort Hood, but decided I better avoid the subject until I calm down a bit. Instead, I give you selected headlines from today's news. Click on the links for the full story.

$230,769.23 Spent Per Stimulus Job "Created or Saved"
Reports to be released Friday on the government Web site are expected to show that the $150 billion in grants and loans made so far under the economic stimulus package have created or saved about 650,000 jobs, White House officials said Friday morning.

Harrison - I still can't figure out how to measure a "saved" job. I wonder how many jobs could be created by your average entrepreneur/business owner with $230,000?

Only a Democrat could waste $230,000 in taxpayer money to create ONE freakin' job and think that is a good thing.

Unemployment Hits Record High - 10.2% In October!
Remember that Obama claimed the stimulus bill would save or create millions of jobs. It didn’t. Remember that the Obama Administration said that the stimulus bill would keep unemployment from rising above 8% and that the bill was too important to take the time to read it? Remember that after a slight dip in unemployment in August Obama claimed that he had “rescued our economy from catastrophe?”

Harrison - The CBO argued it would have been better to do nothing.

10.2% is hardly accurate. The actual number is closer to 17.5%. This is the U-6 category which includes: people who have given up, taken part time jobs, gone back to school etc. Under a Democrat controlled Congress and President Bush, that number was 11.1% last October. It is now 17.5% after a year at the mercy of a Federal government completely dominated by Democrats. Here is the Bureau of Labor Statistics data. Read it quickly before the White House wipes away the evidence.

Democrats have spent taxpayer money we don't have like drunken sailors (no offense intended to my Navy friends). They have nationalized school loans and taken over car companies. They are now openly debating a takeover of health care. All these actions will just delay the natural recovery. If we ever want to get out of this economic funk, we must stop spending, shrink the government and lower taxes. Get DC out of the way of private business and watch the economy roar back to life.

How To Lose A War And Inspire Your Enemies...

The Obama administration has been dithering around with its plans for Afghanistan for almost an entire year. His hand-picked general has requested 40,000 more troops, but Obama is unsure. I can only imagine the outrage from Americans and the military if Roosevelt had strung Eisenhower along this way during WW2.

Our community organizer in chief, with all of 150 days in the Senate now thinks he knows more than the leadership of our professional military on how to win a war! But then again maybe he does not want to win...

Back on July 23rd on Nightline, he had this to say about Afghanistan:

"I'm always worried about using the word 'victory,' because, you know, it invokes this notion of Emperor Hirohito coming down and signing a surrender to MacArthur," Obama told ABC News.

What are we now, France? What is the end game? Defeat? Surrender?

Most conflicts that end decisively, result in a lasting peace. See Germany, Japan, Mexican American, Spanish American wars etc etc. Its only the ones where we have negotiated/surrendered or did not finish what we started that have continued to fester - see North Korea and Afghanistan.

Now we find out that Obama is negotiating with the Taliban for shared leadership in Afghanistan. WTH? The Taliban (or as Obama likes to calls them, Tollybon) was/is one of the most brutally oppressive regimes in the modern era. They gave sanctuary to Al Queda and facilitated the training of 9-11 terrorists. The ongoing insurgency in Afghanistan is being orchestrated by many former Taliban leaders.

Here is what we offered:

"US negotiators had offered the Taliban leadership through Mullah Wakil Ahmed Mutawakkil (former Taliban foreign minister) that if they accept the presence of NATO troops in Afghanistan, they would be given the governorship of six provinces in the south and northeast," a senior Afghan Foreign Ministry official told requesting anonymity for not being authorized to talk about the sensitive issue with the media.

If you have paid any attention to the Middle east in the past 50 years, you know that any concession by the West towards radical islam is perceived as weakness. The Taliban has seen that the US and its allies are not serious about winning the war. They will now ramp up the insurgency costing even more lives because of his amateurish stunt. Example number 5000 of why liberals should never hold power, especially at this level.

If the Taliban ever agreed to such a plan, they would simply use the provinces as launching pads (possibly literally like Hezbollah and Hamas have done with rockets and mortars into Israel) to further destabilize Afghanistan.

America has spent far too much in blood and taxpayer money to walk away now. Its time for this administration to grow a pair, take the gloves off and defeat the forces of darkness that would plunge the now free Afghans back under the iron fist of the Taliban. Let the military fight the battle and don't play politics with American lives.

Obama may not like the term victory, but if he were a real American he would understand that is who we are. We finish what we start. We leave the place better than before we came. And most importantly, we WIN!

Obamacare On Life Support...

The government takeover of health care seems to keep rearing its ugly head. I thought after Sarah Palin's brilliant FaceBook message referring to the "end of life" counseling and inevitable rationing of elderly care as "death panels" was a fatal blow. But even with support all the way down to 42%, and I even think that is overstated, Democrats keep pushing this crap forward.

If you find yourself on the fence, here is one more nugget to consider. One of the big reasons Obama and his henchmen are pushing this is that they see it as a foot in the door to socialized medicine (complete government control of all health decisions and expenditures). There is ample evidence, and in their own words, affirming this truth. They will force everyone to take government insurance (think medicare or medicaid). This will eventually destroy the private insurance industry as they cannot compete against a government (taxpayer) subsidized entity. The end result is everyone will pay EVEN MORE for Obama's crappy government plan.

Why do I call it crappy? Ask a poor person, a health care provider or an elderly person and they will let you know.

Now, one of the ways Obama has sold this garbage is that it would save $$$ and stop the "profiteering" of "big insurance companies." Excuse me?

The top 10 health insurers COMBINED earned profits of just over $8 Billion. Let that number sink in for a tic.

Medicare FRAUD in the USA cost you and me $60 BILLION last year. And that's for about 45 million Medicare victims. Probably half of those $$$ went to ACORN and/or funded Obama's election, but I digress.

How in the wide, wide, world of sports will that number not increase a hundredfold when you force another 200 million people to suffer with some bureaucratic government boondoggle of an insurance plan?

Here is the source article: Annual Medicare Fraud: $60 Billion; Annual Profits of Top Ten Insurance Companies: $8 billion

Say it once again, loud and with feeling:
