“EMO” If President Obama ‘Didn’t Know,’ then Who’s the hell is Running the USA Government??? LRGM

If President Obama ‘Didn’t Know,’ then Who’s Running the Government?
Posted on October 29, 2013 by Gary DeMar

President Obama will not take the blame for anything his administration does. Of course, he’s the first to take credit even when there’s no credit to take.
How many times have we heard President Obama tell the American people that he was unaware of what’s been going on? He didn’t know about Fast and Furious, the IRS scandal, spying on journalists, Benghazi, NSA spying on foreign leaders, or that people could lose their insurance once the so-called Affordable Care Act kicked in.
Even the liberal media are beginning to grow anxious that their political messiah is turning out to be a fraud. Here’s an example from Chris Cillizza who writes for the liberal Washington Post:
“In response to reports that the National Security Agency had spied on world leaders — including Germany’s Angela Merkel – the response from the White House was a now-familiar one: President Obama didn’t know about it.
“NSA chief Keith Alexander ‘did not discuss with President Obama in 2010 an alleged foreign intelligence operation involving German Chancellor Merkel, nor has he ever discussed alleged operations involving Chancellor Merkel,’ said a spokeswoman for the agency. ‘News reports claiming otherwise are not true.’”
A similar “the President didn’t know” strategy was raised by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
If the President didn’t know about his own policies, then who is running the government and by whose authority? Is there a government within the government?
I would like to ask President Obama who actually wrote the Affordable Care Act. The same question needs to be asked of every member of the Senate and House of Representatives who voted for what is now known as Obama (lack of) Care.
We know that Nancy Pelosi never read the Act she voted for. Her response has become six seconds of liberalism stripped naked: “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it.”
So if our elected government representatives don’t know what they voted for because they did not write the bill, then who did? Who’s really running the government?
Jennifer Rubin also wants to know if the President knows that
His is the weakest economic “recovery” since the Great Depression.
The top 10 percent of taxpayers account for 70 percent of the income tax paid.
The Iranian breakout time for a nuclear weapons capability is now as short as a month and new sites are still being announced.
He did not “end” wars in the Middle East. Sectarian violence is mounting in both Iraq and Libya.
Millions of people may eventually be dropped by their current health-care insurance plan, dwarfing the number who have signed up for Obamacare.
Our allies in the Middle East — virtually all of them — are shaken by U.S. timidity.
I have to agree with Rush Limbaugh. The reason Obama doesn’t know is that he doesn’t care. He has it in for America while he and his family live off of America’s largesse that is rapidly being depleted by his purposeful destructive policies.

amenper: ¿Es Obama realmente Dios?

Mientras sus superpoderes milagrosos siempre han sido parte de la narrativa progresiva recientemente ha habido un aumento de avistamientos de la naturaleza divina de Barack Obama en la cultura dominante – de una pintura que representa el Presidente como el Cristo crucificado, a Jamie Foxx llamando a Barack Obama a nuestro Señor y Salvador, a un profesor de Florida quien describió a Obama como un apóstol enviado para crear “el cielo aquí en la tierra”.
¿Blasfemia? Claro que sí, pero eso la blasfemia de ellos, no la mía.
Por lo tanto, me permiten reflexionar sobre esto ahora que se acerca el día de acción de Gracias, sobre como sería si Obama fuera igual que Dios en habilidad intelectual y moral. De hecho, voy hacer una lista de lo que él haría diferentemente:
1.-         Se disculparía con Egipto por el renegado Éxodo y restauraría la seguridad y la igualdad de la esclavitud para todos los judíos. 
·2-       Daría un estímulo para rescatar a los mercaderes del Templo. 
·         Alimentarían las multitudes con cinco formas de gobierno y un rollo de sellos de alimentos. 
·3-         Su mentor sería alguien que había puesto una bomba en el templo. 
·4-         Impresoras de papiro informativas en Israel nunca le criticarían sus acciones. 
·5-         Las escuelas públicas enseñarían sobre él y lo adorarían durante su propia vida.  
·6-         Sodoma y Gomorra sería vibrantes centros culturales de la tolerancia y diversidad de personas de diferente preferencia sexual. 
7-·         Planned Parenthood eliminaría a los primogénitos que la administración de Herodes no hubiera detectado completando su trabajo. 
8-·        Los Republicanos serían declarados culpables de matar al marmuerto y se condenarían a prisión perpetua 
·9-       La última cena le costaría a los contribuyentes siclos 1,4 billones. 
10-·         Poncios Pilato, diría “voy esperar hasta después de la crucifixión, voy a ser más flexible después.”
Por otro lado, si Obama fuera a desempeñar el papel de nuestro Señor y Salvador con un poco más brío, sus frases inspiradoras también sonarían diferentemente:
·         Dar al César lo que es César, a menos que gane más de 25 siclos, entonces tiene que pagar el doble.
·         Bienaventurados todos los que tienen quejas, porque ellos serán compensados a través de demandas derechos civiles.
·         Bienaventurados los desempleados, porque los contribuyentes será sus cuidadores.
·         Bienaventurados los pobres, para ellos es el Reino de la riqueza expropiada por el estado.
·         Si tu ojo derecho te hace pecar, invita al izquierdo a una bacanal; Porque no es justo que un solo ojo se divierta mientras el otro es discriminado.
·         Si tu mano derecha te hace pecar, asegúrese de tener suficiente pecados para la mano izquierda; Pues la mano izquierda también tiene sus derechos a la justa distribución de los pecados.
·         Quien tiene lujuria o se acuesta con la mujer del prójimo, asegúrate de que los medios de comunicación no te descubran.
·         Yo soy el guardián de mi hermano, a menos que él viva en una choza en Kenia.
·         Un hombre debe de tener satisfacción en que le aumenten sus impuestos.
·         Impón un seguro de salud a los demás que no impondrías a ti mismo.
·         Dad al gobierno lo que le pertenece a Dios y espera que el Gobierno te proveerá.
·         Yo digo a ti, odia tus vecinos ricos y ama el gobierno que redistribuye su riqueza. .
·         Ama a los enemigos de Estados Unidos, los que lo maldicen, bendecid y haz el bien a quienes lo odian y odia a tus aliados…
·         Pedro, cuando vas a Bengasi, voy a negar su solicitud de ayuda tres veces.
AMEN…………..

Samitier: Obama ordena campaña contra Vladimir Putin… “El Discurso de Putin Contra Los Musulmanes…”
Pero antes La Prensa Socialista y Pro Homosexual Es Partidaria Del GOBIERNO MUNDIAL Putin Es Partidario De LaCOLABORACIÓN Entre Naciones De Acuerdo A Sus Intereses
La Campaña Contra Putin Es Mundial…A pesar Que se Merece El “Noble De La Paz” Por Evitar La Guerra En Siria… La Cual La DESEABA HACER… Para entregar Siria a los Musulmanes…
Obama al que le “REGALARON SIN HACER NADA El Nobel… Para analizar lo que está sucediendo en el MUNDO y especialmente en USA Lo primero que tenemos que CONOCER BIEN a Obama quien dirige a USA…
Lo primero que tenemos que saber es la siguiente declaración ESCRITA Por Obama…en Su Libro Audacity Of Hope:
“Yo estaré con los musulmanes si los vientos políticos… se desplazan contra ellos en una dirección fea “
Hasta este momento todo lo que Obama ha hecho, demuestra que el es un “ANTI CRISTIANO” y actúa en la forma que lo escribió hace años…  
Ahora! Lean El Discurso De Putin En La Duma… Con Relación Al Problema Musulmán en Rusia…
Fue dado en su reporte a la DUMA el 4 de agosto 2013
“En relación sobre las tensiones con las minorías que viven en Rusia… les diré; Es mejor que en Rusia vivan como rusos. Cualquier minoría, desde cualquier lugar, si quiere vivir en Rusia, para trabajar y comer en Rusia , debe hablar ruso , y debe respetar las leyes rusas… (aplausos).
Si prefieren la ley islámica, y vivir la vida de los musulmanes,,, entonces le recomiendo que vayan a esos lugares donde esa es la ley del estado…   
Rusia no necesita las minorías musulmanas. Las minorías están en deuda con Rusia, y no se les concederá privilegios especiales, o tratar de cambiar nuestras leyes para satisfacer sus deseos , no importa lo fuerte que gritan “discriminación.”(aplausos)
No vamos a tolerar la falta de respeto de nuestra cultura rusa.
Será mejor que aprendan de los suicidios de los Estados Unidos, Inglaterra, Holanda, Francia, Italia y España, si queremos que Rusia sobreviva como nación. Los musulmanes se están apoderando de esos países y eso no sucederá en Rusia.
Las costumbres y tradiciones rusas no son compatibles con la falta de cultura y la forma primitiva de la ley Sharia musulmana.
Cuando este honorable cuerpo legislativo piense en la creación de nuevas leyes, debe y tiene que tener en cuenta los intereses nacionales de Rusia en primer lugar, observando que las minorías musulmanas no son rusos.  
Los Políticos De La Duma Dieron a Putin Una Ovación De Cinco Minutos.
Qué Gran Diferencia… con Obama y También Con CONGRESO y La Corte Suprema De USA… Que Linda Con La TRAICIÓN

amenper:  ¿Que sabía? ¿O es que realmente es un ignorante?
“EMO” ¿O es un mentiroso patologico? LRGM.
Imagínense, por un momento, que usted es el CEO de una importante empresa, y está lanzando una iniciativa de la firma, una en la cual usted desempeñó un papel principal durante su desarrollo..  Tenemos que suponernos que usted quiere tener su dedo en el pulso del proyecto durante  cada paso del camino, ¿no? Claro que sí.

Por lo tanto, es inconcebible, a pesar de la palabras de  Kathleen Sebelius diciendo que el Presidente Obama no sabía o no se había enterado que el despegue de su ley de cuidado de la salud había sido un desastre, el creer que esto sea posible.
Parece que tampoco sabía, que la Sra. Sebelius, Secretaria de salud y servicios humanos de su gabinete  con obstinada insistencia (y arrogancia política) hizo caso omiso de las noticias de los fallos del Obamacare.,
Uno tiene que preguntarse también el nivel del papel de la Sra. Sebelius, la cual debía de ser  despedidas sumariamente por incompetente, tuvo en este desastre.
Quizás no ha sido despedida porque realmente no fue ella pero el presidente personalmente el responsable del desastre.
Sería todo una farsa cómica si los contribuyentes no hubieran tenido que pagar más de 1 billón de dólares para crear un sistema que, les dijeron a los que los creyeron que curaría lo que aqueja al sistema de salud estadounidense,  y que ahora parece estar haber sufrido el equivalente a una convulsión tónico-clónica generalizada y está ahora en estado comatoso.

Ccualquiera que sea el caso, estos “fallos”-son una vergüenza y no simplemente porque violaron las reglas estándar de comercio en la internet. La ley dice que cuando se vende algo a través de la internet,  hay que requerir a los consumidores, crear una cuenta antes de permitirles a mirar a los detalles de la compra en la web.  Pero además porque el resultado ha sido, que más gente puede estar perdiendo sus seguros debido a Obamacare que los que hubieran podido ser capaces de inscribirse en el programa.
Hay quienes, no pocos, que bajaron la palanquita el día de las elecciones, de la esperanza y cambio, y que ahora van a tener que pagar un seguro con un pago mucho mayor con menos beneficios.
Mientras que el resultado de que las neuronas que se mantienen fallando en el “Obamacare Central” es, por supuesto, una catástrofe no sólo políticamente para el Sr. Obama sino también prácticamente para los norteamericanos tratando de usar el sistema, no son única preocupación de esta administración. 
Lo que más daña a esta administración y a su líder, es su credibilidad cada día más baja..
¿Cuántas veces debemos oír que el Presidente no sabía esto, o no estaba consciente de esto otro? Cada vez que se enfrenta a problemas — ya sea en Benghazi, o con el IRS o ahora en el marco principal del Obamacare — el Sr. Obama está ausente del problema “no está en su oficina”, “está en un meeting”,”fue al baño” o está jugando golf en Hawáii
 ¿Y los liberales tuvieron la temeridad de acusar a Ronald Reagan de no saber qué estaba pasando?
La pregunta, por supuesto, es si el Sr. Obama está verdaderamente consciente de lo que ocurre a su alrededor, o si sabe exactamente lo que pasa y cuando sus mejores planes fracasan, y entonces intenta negar la responsabilidad del  fracaso.
Y esto último parece que es lo que está haciendo el Presidente Obama al pueblo de los Estados Unidos, los está engañando, se está burlando de ellos.
Un republicano, Abraham Lincoln, dijo:  Uno puede engañar a parte de las personas parte del tiempo, parte de las personas todo el tiempo,  pero no debiera ser posible engañar a todas las personas todo el tiempo
Pero estos demócratas de hoy como los de ayer, no quieren oír a un republicano, aunque ese republicano sea Abraham Lincoln.
Es hora de que los partidarios del Sr. Obama a reconocer una verdad simple: negarlo ni siquiera tiene sentido.
“EMO” El desgobierno de obama nos da la impresion que la administracion de su gobierno esta en manos de “Los tres Chiflados” Aunque quizas si estubiera en manos de esos locos, las cosas no estarian tan mal como estan, porque ellos eran locos-comicos y este, en mi opinion, esta lleno de malas intenciones y maldad… LRGM

Samitier: Las Multas de TRAFICO
Un Monto $ De Las Multas De Tráfico Un VERDADERO ABUSO y Han Sido Aprobadas Por Politiqueros Electos… La Policía es LANZADA a la calle con una cuota de poner multas… Eso lo saben LOS CIUDADANOS y TODOS LOS POLITIQUEROS… 
Es más FÁCIL SACARSE UNA MULTA QUE LA LOTERÍA… 
Al final de cada mes… los que no han cumplido la CUOTA… se juntan En una esquina donde por lógica del mismo trafico todos los choferes Exceden la velocidad… y vemos desde 4 a 8 policías poniendo multas… Solo se salvan los que transitan mientras están ocupados poniendo Multas…
A todo lo anterior hay que ver las TRAMPAS DE TRÁFICO que crean Bajando la velocidad de UNA CALLE en 3 o 4 cuadras…  
Todo esto es un INSULTO pero los CARNEROS siguen eligiendo a los Mismo POLITIQUEROS…
“EMO” Segun personas que han medido el tiempo de la luz amarilla, esta paso a ser de 12 segundos a 4 segundos cosa que impide que mas de un auto pasen con la amarilla siendo multados todos los que vengan detras. Ademas de que ha causado varias muertes debajo de los semaforos al sufrir accidentes porque los choferes aceleran sus autos para poderse ir. Ya son demasiados los que han perdido la vida bajo los semaforos por “La amarilla corta” LRGM.

amenper: La dependencia del Gobierno
Por experiencia personal, me he encontrado ante el hecho de que cuando nuestra compañía entrevista futuros empleados, más del 50% (no estoy exagerando) citan como un requisito ser pagados “bajo la mesa”, algo prácticamente imposible para nosotros y otras compañías que no hacemos negocios sobre la base de efectivo como una tienda de venta al detalle. 
Dicen abiertamente que no vale la pena trabajar por $10,00 por hora (bien sobre el salario mínimo) si tienen que renunciar al desempleo, el cheque suplementario, sellos de alimentos, Medicaid y otros beneficios.
Esto despertó mi curiosidad de buscar en el internet para ver en el informe emitido por la oficina presupuestaria del Congreso que presentó el documento examinando la lenta tasa de crecimiento de la economía estadounidense tras la última recesión.
Concluye que el factor más significativo ahora para limitar el potencial crecimiento económico de Estados Unidos es el declive  de la fuerza laboral   — la cual ha aumentado recientemente a un ritmo de  sólo la mitad de la tasa lo hizo en los años siguientes a la SEGUNDA guerra mundial.
El crecimiento más lento del empleo potencial refleja principalmente un hecho primario que estamos viviendo en nuestros días.
El gobierno estadounidense ha establecido nuevos records en los últimos años del número de personas en cupones para alimentos y Medicaid, y el número de personas recibiendo ayuda sobre la discapacidad.
Sin embargo, incluso mientras fuerza laboral general de la tasa de participación de las mujeres ha disminuido, las madres casadas con hijos, son más propensas a trabajar que sus pares solteras con hijos.
Esto es debido a los incrementos en los  beneficios del gobierno para madres solteras.
De hecho, las cifras de empleo esta semana mostraban que el porcentaje de mujeres no institucionalizadas mayor de 16 años que participaron en la fuerza laboral (es decir, tenían un trabajo o buscaban uno) cayó en septiembre a 57.1 por ciento, esta tasa de crecimineto también bajó este mes de octubre que fue el más bajo en los últimos de 24 años.
Las mujeres que trabajan contribuyen a nuestra economía de dos maneras: trabajan y crean riqueza ahora, y crían niños con éticas de trabajo que pueden crear riqueza en el futuro.
Sin embargo, uno se pregunta cuántas de ellas desearían que la economía estadounidense fuera más como en 1948, cuando era más fácil para las madres casadas a quedarse en casa con sus hijos si ellos querían, cuando el PIB real creció 4,1 por ciento, y sus primas no podrían actuar como parásitos porque los políticos de redistribución aún no habían comenzado las estampillas para comida, programas de Medicaid y discapacidad.
Pero las más personas dependiente del gobierno los más votos cautivos que tiene la izquierda liberal.
El estado de Welfare se derrumba a nuestro alrededor. Hay gente que se da cuenta que no podemos seguir así, pero no estoy seguro de cuántas personas se dan cuenta de cuán cerca estamos con el colapso del sistema financiero estadounidense.
EMO: La enfermiza e inmoral dependencia de la “ayuda del gobierno” no es mas que un metodo que utilizan los gobernantes para desmoralizar a los ciudadanos y convertilos en delincuentes de segunda, Cuando mienten para adquirir esa ayuda inmoral que proviene, no del gobierno descarado sino de los ciudadanos honestos que son los que trabajan… LRGM

amenper: Clichés y Fracasos
Un ”cliché”, como implícito en la definición de la palabra, a menudo contiene más que un significado latente… que se pasa por alto completamente debido a la repetición constante de la declaración.
Presidente Obama y sus compinches liberales nos dan un montón interminable de “clichés” que son esencialmente incorrectos.
No hay absolutamente ninguna sabiduría inherente o expresa, en los clichés de Obama… 
Si lo oímos decir una vez que “la distribución de la riqueza”  “expansión del Medicaid” y “eficiencia de gobierno” son  las claves para el crecimiento económico — o al menos su versión — le oímos decir una docena de veces, que las políticas de los republicanos están matando a las oportunidades de empleo.
Sr. Presidente “El Welfare, no es un programa de empleos”.
Su enfoque presupuestario — esencialmente dirigido a “ver qué ingresos tenemos en mano y acompañarlo con el aumento del techo de la deuda”  “Es todo lo que tenemos que hacer”.
a) No coordinamos todos los elementos…
b) Fallamos en conectar todos los puntos…
c) La mano derecha no sabia lo que estaba haciendo la izquierda…
d) Resolveremos todos esos horrores, perdon herrores…
e) [Se me estan acabando los clichets] Alguien se sabe alguna escusa mas…
Para muchos observadores que sospechamos que las festividades retóricas que son repetidas en las referencias de Obama a la defectuosa implementación Obamacare, tal  nos parece que  Obama  cree que la ley de salud, como está escrita, no sólo es buena, pero que no es lo suficiente en el camino a la socialización de la medicina
Precisamente por esto, no hay razón para nadie, excepto para los más comprometidos liberales de línea dura que puedan aprobar la gestión administrativa de Obama. 
En Estados Unidos la mayoría de grandes corporaciones, si un ejecutivo tuvo tres años para lanzar el producto del que tal vez depende el futuro de la empresa, y se enfrenta a esta debacle, el pánico lo haría renunciar. Se celebrarían reuniones de emergencia de la Junta para determinar si deben rodar más cabezas para tratar de salvar la empresa.
Fuera del gobierno, la gente normalmente paga por sus errores. Dentro, en esta administración, no hay ninguna pena, no hay castigo por el fracaso.
Para Obama, un desastre que hasta los miembros de su propio partido piden suspender durante un año es sólo el resultado de “problemas técnicos”.
Todavía es suficiente para que sea aceptable y que pueda trabajar para el gobierno

General says U.S. Army ‘Dysfunctional’, Underprepared. by KYLE EBERSOLE 

The U.S. Army currently has only two combat-ready brigades, according to Army Chief of Staff General Ray Odierno.
At the Association of the U.S. Army conference on Monday, the Army Chief of Staff and Army Secretary John McHugh said this fact is a result of sequestration — the across-the-board budget cuts that kicked-in on March 1 of this year.
Odierno said that the U.S. Army is without funds to properly train its own troops and that “functioning like this is just dysfunctional.”
“The worst case scenario,” he said, “is you ask me to deploy thousands of soldiers somewhere and we have not properly trained them to go because we simply don’t have the dollars and money.”
The Army Chief of Staff hopes to bump up the number of combat-ready brigades from two to seven by June, but is doubtful such will happen. As far as troops abroad, Odierno notes that the those operating in Afghanistan “aren’t really combat-ready either since they’re deployed for training and advising only.”
The federal government leaving the U.S. Army underprepared  is a threat to national security and proves the folly of the thoughtless, wide-but-shallow sequester cuts. Congress needs to reign-in both welfarism and militarism, but they ought never allow national defense to be gutted.
The Constitution charges those in Washington to “provide for the common defense.”
Odierno’s testimony that our Army is underfunded and undertrained is a sad fact, not to mention dangerous one — especially since U.S. legislators defend funding, arming, and training foreign militaries in places like Syria and Egypt.

The White House Made Sure Millions Would Lose Their Insurance While They Lied About It. by Mark Horne 

Last night I had the exquisite pleasure of listening to NPR explain that the people who were losing the insurance they wanted to keep and who would be forced to pay more for less, were only a few million of the insured. It was taken for granted, by NPR, that a few million robbed of their insurance and extra money every month was no big deal. Who cares about them, right? They’re just the eggs that we break to make the Obamacare omelet.
In the meantime, the White House site still makes the claim (Second paragraph, last sentence), “If you like your plan you can keep it and you don’t have to change a thing due to the health care law.” I checked at 8:35 Central Time last night and the sentence had still not been removed. If it has changed now, you can find a screen capture here.
Valerie Jarrett, Barack Obama’s handler, tweeted, “FACT: Nothing in #Obamacare forces people out of their health plans. No change is required unless insurance companies change existing plans.”
Yet the NBC News website has run a story saying that the Obama Administration new three years in advance that there would be millions who would not be permitted to keep their insurance.
President Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.
Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC NEWS that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”
But not only did the Obama Administration lie about how bad the law would be, even after it passed thy made changes in the law in order to make it worse. The original law did allow for some plans to be “grandfathered” by those who wanted to keep them.
But the Department of Health and Human Services then wrote regulations that narrowed that provision, by saying that if any part of a policy was significantly changed since that date — the deductible, co-pay, or benefits, for example — the policy would not be grandfathered.
Buried in Obamacare regulations from July 2010 is an estimate that because of normal turnover in the individual insurance market, “40 to 67 percent” of customers will not be able to keep their policy. And because many policies will have been changed since the key date, “the percentage of individual market policies losing grandfather status in a given year exceeds the 40 to 67 percent range.” 
That means the administration knew that more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.
Yet President Obama, who had promised in 2009, “if you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan,” was still saying in 2012, “If [you] already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.”
This explains to me why I was given a false sense of security about my own insurance. I was told that my plan could be “grandfathered.” But no one could know what changes Sebelius was going to make in the law.
In case you have forgotten how blatant the lying was, here is a reminder. It gets especially relevant at about 1:07.
“Disinformation.” “Deceptive headlines.”
Not only did they lie about their law, the falsely accused those who tried to warn the public of lying.

No, The “Tea Party” Is Not Wrong About The Deficit
Posted on October 28, 2013 by Mark Horne 

The former Executive Editor of Bloomberg claims that the statement, “The U.S. budget deficit is worse than ever,” is a false statement. Technically true but trivial. His elaboration is false:
A starting – and false – premise of the public, and some politicians, is that the deficit is spiraling out of control. In a national survey by Bloomberg News last month, Americans said, by a margin of 59 percent to 10 percent, the deficit was getting worse; this belief was held by 93 percent of Tea Party supporters.
In fact, the deficit, which reached a staggering $1.55 trillion in the 2009 fiscal year, has declined every year since and is less than half as big today.
So pulling back from adding to the national debt $1.55 trillion in a year to somewhere that is less than half means the deficit is “in control”? That is stupid and dangerous reasoning.
It isn’t uncommon for people to slip in their thinking and mistake “deficit” (each yearly addition to the national debt) and the debt itself (the result of years of deficits compiling up). But each year we add to the debt (which is super low because it doesn’t include our Social Security and other entitlement obligations which people are (vainly) expecting to use in the future.
Only this is outdated because we are now over $17 trillion.
Adding hundreds of billions of dollars more every year is absolutely the definition of “out of control” deficit spending.
Yet this is the kind of reasoning wealthy regime apologists use to pretend that you are ignorant and misled. They are happily promoting the flames burning down our house and waving their fingers at your for panicking.
Of course, having claimed that the deficit is not so bad after all, the writer goes on to tell us that we need to be taxed more. As if price inflation in energy and groceries produced by our Federal Reserve tyranny, and the huge Obamacare price hikes for medical care and insurance are not enough!
These people sit around thinking up labyrinthine rationalizations to make us pay more taxes, acquiesce to more debt, and distrust anyone who tells you the truth. They are stupid, suicidal, conspiring for some hidden objective, or guilty of some combination of all three.
Entitlement cuts are treated as unworkable when everyone who thinks about the future knows cuts are coming. The collapse will cut everything. But worse, even when entitlement cuts are considered, this is being offered as a way to end sequestration.
No! Sequestration is a first step that must never end until it is replaced with an absolute spending freeze. Then the next step is to reduce the budget in absolute terms. We need to start going backward in time to previous and lower levels of spending on the part of the Federal Government.
Nothing else even attempts to use the brakes before the car goes off the cliff. It is the only possible rational fiscal position. And it is one that neither party is yet advocating.

Barack Obama Knew Nothing About Spying On World Leaders; So Who Is President?
Posted 10 Hours Ago by Mark Horne f

Though the German press reported that Obama gave permission to the NSA in 2010 to continue spying on Angela Merkel, Obama is denying the story. US officials are claiming that he didn’t know anything about the NSA’s spying on heads of state until recently.
In the midst of the controversy over U.S. surveillance this summer, top intelligence officials held a briefing for President Obama at the White House – one that would provide him with a broad inventory of programs being carried out by the National Security Agency.
Some of those programs, including the collection of e-mails and other communications from overseas, had already been disclosed because of leaks from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. But Obama was also informed of at least one program whose scope surprised him: “head of state collection.”
That program, whose targets included the communications of U.S. allies such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel, began in 2002, according to administration officials. The president never knew that the program targeted American allies, administration officials said…
Okay, let’s add some information to that timeline. You may remember that back in 2008 and then in 2012 there were nationwide controversies. We have such a controversy in our nation every four years. They are called “Presidential elections.”
Because I’m so old I remember that in 2008, Obama was the Democrat candidate running against the Republican John McCain. Obama claimed to be different from McCain and from the incumbent president, George W. Bush. People voted for or against Obama on the assumption that he was a candidate who could become the elected leader of the US Federal Government. Then in 2012 we went through the motions again in choosing between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
Elections are supposed to matter. The President is supposed to have some say in how the government is run—especially on foreign policy. The President is supposed to represent the American people to the world. Yet, we are told, the President was never informed about what his National Security Agency was doing all during his first term and into his second.
So is the NSA the real President of the United States? They don’t seem to have to go to any higher authority to spy on the heads of allied governments. They seem to be an autonomous authority making decisions about how to treat our allies.
In fact, this makes all the rhetoric about how Edward Snowden is guilty of exposing government secrets seem all the more bizarre. If this story is true, it means that Edward Snowden is responsible for getting the President of the United States informed that the NSA was spying on allied world leaders. Without Snowden’s heroic efforts, our President would still be ignorant of the secret Federal Government programs.
So again: Who is really President? Who is in charge of our government?

by PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY 

Have you checked your kids’ school assignments lately? You might be shocked if you do.
Sixth-grade children in a history class in the Bryant School District in Arkansas (whose website brags that the district “has embraced” Common Core standards) were assigned a project to update the U.S. Bill of Rights because it is “outdated.” They were instructed to “prioritize, revise, omit two and add two amendments.”
The written assignment is full of lies, such as that “the government of the United States is currently revisiting The Bill of Rights,” that “They (presumably the government) have determined that it is outdated and may not remain in its current form any longer,” and that our Constitution can be changed by a “National Revised Bill of Rights Task Force (NRBR)” (to which students could be appointed).
St. Joseph-Ogden High School, a public school in St. Joseph, Illinois, gave its sophomore class an assignment to choose which of ten people were “worthy” of getting kidney dialysis when the hospital had only six machines. The assignment instructed the students, “four people are not going to live. You must decide from the information below which six will survive.”
The students were given the list of the ten who desperately needed kidney dialysis with identification about their occupation, age and ethnicity, and told to give each a score. The instructions stated: “Put the people in order using 1-10, 1 being the person you want to save first and 10 being the person you would save last,” with the assumption that those getting scores 7 through 10 would be marked for death.
Since when are high school students allowed to judge who may live and who must die? Is this to prepare us to accept Death Panels from Obamacare?
Unfortunately, such public school class assignments are not new. A Department of Education hearing in Seattle on March 13, 1984 heard a parent describe the Health class in Clackamas High School in Oregon.
Students were presented with the “lifeboat situation”: too many people are in the sinking lifeboat and the students were ordered to choose whose lives are not worth saving and should be thrown overboard so the lifeboat won’t sink. Variations of the lifeboat situation have been widely used in public schools for many years.
A drama teacher at Cactus Shadows High School in Cave Creek, Arizona, had his students perform a play in which one of the characters falls in love with a goat. The play includes sexually explicit content and vulgar sexual terms.
At Lucy Elementary School near Memphis, Tennessee, an assignment required each student to pick an idol and write an essay about him. A ten-year-old girl chose God as her idol, but the teacher found this unacceptable and demanded that the girl write about someone else.
The girl then wrote about Michael Jackson, which the teacher accepted. After the girl’s mother spoke out against this in the local media, the school apologized and gave the girl credit for her original work.
Fourth graders in Gilbert, Arizona, and third graders in Louisiana and were given a lesson on adultery that included specific questions designed to make the child curious about what adultery is and how it affects relationships. The teacher said it came from approved Common Core materials for third-graders.
Glenn Beck reported that Poolesville High School in Montgomery County, Maryland, which is Common Core compliant, administered an intrusive survey to students that included personal questions about family, religion, income, political identification, illegal drugs, Obamacare, guns, and same-sex marriage. Click on The Blaze to be entertained by the conflicting responses that school officials gave to parents who complained and to reporters.
The question that parents found particularly obnoxious and trouble-making was, “If President Obama were caucasian how much more or less criticism do you think he would receive?” The multiple-choice answers were: “A lot less, Somewhat less, No difference, Somewhat more, A lot more.”
Fifth-graders in North Bellmore, New York, spent several weeks studying the United Nations. One mother was highly offended when her daughter received full credit for writing that our human rights come from government (instead of from God, as our Declaration of Independence proclaims).
At Alliance High School in Nebraska, the principal announced on October 7 that, because of the government shutdown, he was shutting down the usual morning recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance. After public protest, he reversed his ban.
None of the above assignments quoted directy from a Common Core curriculum, but some claim to be “aligned with Common Core” or “Common Core compliant.” It’s beginning to look like such assertions are a cover to fill the minds of public school students with all kinds of inappropriate leftwing notions, while erecting a Common Core “wall” to prevent parental oversight.

The Tea Party: Last Hope for America
by LLOYD MARCUS 

Mary read it out loud from her computer, “Booker Wins!” The news hit me like a punch in the gut. Despite months of intense campaigning, making remarkable gains in the polls and rallying the Tea Party, far left radical liberal Democrat Cory Booker beat conservative Republican Steve Lonegan for the New Jersey U.S. Senate seat.
The cold reality is Booker’s $11.2 million war chest vs Lonegan’s $1.35 million. Still, the race was much closer than panicked Democrats expected. Lonegan boldly touted conservative principles. He outperformed Mitt Romney’s Nov. 2012 vote totals in most New Jersey counties.
On election day, I felt a bit yucky, fighting a cold and tired. Booker’s win added to my yuckiness. Camped out on the sofa, I watched a TV show titled, “The Book of Manning”, a documentary about the Manning family and their amazing football legacy.
Folks, that TV show helped to get me through the night. It reminded me of what I am fighting for, an American ideal. I am fighting to preserve an America in which striving for excellence, working hard and trying to do the right thing is rewarded.
My involvement in the political arena goes far beyond politics. It is about two opposing visions for America and what it means to be an American.
Booker, like his idol Obama, seeks to transform America into a nation where entitlements reign supreme, achievers are demonized, standards are lowered and mediocrity is spread equally; a land of baby daddies and welfare checks.
Democrats feel morally justified in their relentless efforts to redistribute wealth. They dismiss achievers as mere “winners of life’s lottery”. Hogwash! Biographies of Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Peyton, Eli and Archie Manning and countless others confirm that superior performance is birthed out of a superior work ethic.
“Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives – choice, not chance, determines your destiny.” Aristotle
As I stated, we are in a war of two opposing ideas; striving for and celebrating American exceptional-ism vs a gimme-my-government-handout America.
Washington elites on both sides of the political isle have launched an all out assault to destroy the Tea Party and the lawmakers who represent our principles and values.
However, the reality is that thanks to the Tea Party,Steve Lonegan earned the highest percentage of the vote for any Republican candidate for Senate in New Jersey in the last dozen years. I am extremely proud of you folks. Thank you very, very much.
The closeness of the Senate race confirms that conservatism does resonate with voters when properly articulated. We lost because Booker had $11 million to smear Lonegan and sell lies to masses of low-info voters. Pundits are erroneously blaming the Tea Party.
We, the Tea Party are the instruments of real change in DC. Quite frankly, Washington elites are appalled by our arrogance. Who do we Tea Party yahoos think we are trying to make demands on them?
Patriots, I wish to send out a clarion call to stand strong in your commitment to preserving the freedoms we have left and restoring those we have lost. Also, it is vitally crucial that you remain loyal and defend our representatives Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee with every fiber of your being. Without their courageous voices championing our mission, the battle for America is easily lost.
As I stated, watching the Manning Family documentary gave me hope. It was about a young man who worked very, very hard to be the best football player he could be. But his greatest desire was to be a good dad to his sons. Without pressuring his sons to following in his footsteps but simply leading by example, both Peyton and Eli embraced the family work ethic which has lead to pro football excellence. Their mom was loving and supportive.
Laugh, poke fun and call it “Leave it to Beaver” if you like, but it is the kind of America I miss and see swiftly slipping away.
Just an observation, Archie Manning was a live in father rather than a baby daddy with numerous out of wedlock births resulting from his sperm donations.
Hang in there Tea Party. Though they slander you with false accusations of racism, in reality, you are the last hope for America.

Michelle Obama, Corrupt, and Amoral; Hardly A Radical. Posted on October 28, 2013 by Mark Horne 

I’m sure the First Lady is really at home speaking in Leftist radical clichés with Leftists who support her So I’m glad that the Daily Caller posted this story about her life at Harvard with her crony Toni Townes-Whitley, now at CGI Federal—the company that got the no-bid project to produce the worthless website, healthcare.gov.
First Lady Michelle Obama and her Princeton classmate whose company received the no-bid government contract to build the HealthCare.gov Obamacare website were both members of a black student organization that caused a tense scene on campus by inviting a PLO leader who advocated for terrorism.
Michelle Obama ’85 and her classmate Toni Townes-Whitley ’85, a senior vice president at CGI Federal, were both students at the university when their groups the Organization of Black Unity (OBU) and the Third World Center (TWC) engaged in a confrontation with Jewish students on campus.
Michelle Obama was a member of both the OBU and TWC during her time at Princeton (1981-85). Townes-Whitley also belonged to OBU and TWC.
The whole story is really interesting.
But it doesn’t prove that Michelle Obama is any kind of committed “radical”—as I see some people inferring. She’s dangerous. She’s bad. But she’s obviously just a political climber who hopes to amass or at least spend a lot of money while doing minimal work except for celebrity gigs that involve the narcissistic rewards.
The Caller makes a big deal about advocating terrorism, but with our attack on Libya and now Syria empowering Al Qaeda affiliates, it might be a better use of our time to list the people in power in Washington DC who refuse to be associated with terrorism. Michelle Obama in college in the eighties doesn’t seem important compared to John McCain in Syria this year.
If anything, the whole story of their bullying Jews and all the rest indicates that Michelle and her friend don’t understand the idea of tolerating anyone who gets in their way and feel utterly entitled. That certainly comports Michelle’s subsidized lifestyle. It also would fit with a Senior Vice President getting a contract and feeling no need to produce any results.
I’m not saying that ideology is not important, and that it plays no part with Michelle Obama. But I think it is mainly an ad hoc rationalization for her ambitions to wealth and power. It also gives her help in building relationships in her Chicago power base.
But calling her a “radical” almost pays her a compliment she doesn’t deserve. She’s not in it to save the world (however horrible that would be!). She just wants to be rich and believes she’s entitled to it.

¿Qué sabía Obama sobre el espionaje? Depende a quién le preguntes
Por Catherine E. Shoichet y Holly Yan

(CNN) — Si de liderazgo y hacerse cargo se trata, el presidente Barack Obama tiene una postura clara: “La responsabilidad es mía”.
Es una frase que ha repetido en varias ocasiones, pero ahora enfrenta un doble golpe: las fallas en la página web del Obamacare y el enojo mundial por el espionaje de líderes aliados.
Pero en realidad, ¿qué sabe el presidente y cuándo se enteró? Depende a quién le preguntes.
Algunos funcionarios dicen que Obama desconocía los problemas con el registro en el programa de salud antes de su lanzamiento y que se enteró recientemente de que la Agencia de Seguridad Nacional (NSA, por sus siglas en inglés) había intervenido llamadas de la canciller alemana Angela Merkel.
“Entiendo que el presidente Obama no sabía que se registraban las comunicaciones de la canciller Merkel desde 2002”, dijo la presidenta de la Comisión de Inteligencia del Senado, Dianne Feinstein. “Eso para mí es un gran problema”.
Sin embargo, otros funcionarios dicen que el presidente, o al menos su equipo de la Casa Blanca, sabían al respecto.
Analistas dicen que las preguntas acerca de qué sabía el presidente tienen implicaciones importantes. Si Obama estaba al tanto, significaría que no ha sido claro con los estadounidenses y si no sabía, significaría que su equipo le esconde cosas.
“Realmente no hay una buena respuesta”, dijo el estratega republicano Kevin Madden. “Si él hubiera estado al tanto, esencialmente hemos sido engañados por diferentes personas de la administración acerca de lo que sabía el presidente. Si no hubiera estado al tanto, es un despojo de las responsabilidades más básicas del mando y el control sobre partes muy importantes de su gestión, y eso es un problema”.
No vinculen los asuntos: la Casa Blanca
En una entrevista con CNN, la secretaria de Salud y Servicios Humanos, Kathleen Sebelius, dijo que Obama supo de los problemas del sitio web del Obamacare hasta su lanzamiento el pasado 1 de octubre, aunque aseguradoras se habían quejado y la página colapsó en una prueba.
El vocero de la Casa Blanca, Jay Carney, rechazó este lunes dar detalles acerca de lo que Obama sabía y dijo que vincular asuntos como el Obamacare y el espionaje de la NSA era “mezclar un montón de temas muy diferentes”.
Carney dijo que no “entraría en reportes individuales sobre los programas específicos” y proporcionaría más detalles cuando concluya la revisión de los programas de vigilancia.
Feinsteind afirmó que la Casa Blanca le dijo que el espionaje de EU a sus aliados terminaría, pero un alto funcionario de la administración indicó que esa declaración no era del todo cierta.
El funcionario indicó que se están haciendo algunos cambios, pero que no hay cambios en la política en el extranjero, como terminar con la recolección de información de inteligencia entre aliados.
No todo se revela, dicen expertos
Es posible que Obama desconozca los objetivos específicos del espionaje, dijo la analista de seguridad de CNN, Fran Townsend, miembro de un grupo de asesores externo de la CIA.
Las prioridades generales son conocidas por la Casa Blanca, explicó. “Pero los objetivos específicos, (como) el teléfono de Angela Merkel, no son el tipo de cosas discutidas con el presidente de Estados Unidos”.
Nadie debe esperar que el presidente sepa todo lo que la NSA está haciendo, dijo Julian Zelizer, un profesor de historia y asuntos públicos de la Universidad de Princeton.
“Pero cuando se habla de la vigilancia de líderes mundiales y de un asunto que ha sido tan controvertido desde hace tiempo, se esperaría que el presidente o las personas que lo rodean sepan algo al respecto… creo que sí es una sorpresa que esto haya estado fuera del radar de los círculos internos de la Casa Blanca”.
¿Un momento para el cambio?
El representante republicano Peter King, un miembro clave del Comité de Seguridad Nacional, dijo que si la vigilancia ocurrió sin el conocimiento del presidente, las implicaciones son mayores.
“Si el presidente no sabía, eso genera preguntas acerca de su labor como jefe del Ejecutivo. El hecho de que haya tenido negociaciones, discusiones y reuniones con Angela Merkel o líderes franceses —o para el caso cualquier otro líder— y que no estuviera al tanto de la vigilancia que se llevaba a cabo a las llamadas privadas, para mí que algo está muy mal en su administración o él tiene una actitud de no hacer nada. Para mí, esto es inaceptable”.
Rss Douthat, un comentarista político de CNN y columnista de The New York Times, pregunta si algunos funcionarios perderán su trabajo si el presidente realmente no fue informado.
“La pregunta es: ¿por qué las personas que no pudieron mantenerlo al tanto todavía tienen sus puestos de trabajo?”, preguntó.
Sin importar qué sabía Obama o cuándo lo supo, algunos dicen que es hora de un nuevo enfoque.
“A menudo se ha dicho que él no sabía lo que estaba pasando con el sitio web (HealthCare.gov)… Él no puede fingir que no sabe y alejarse de los problemas, porque ya van muchas veces que es tomado por sopresa”, dijo AB Stoddard, editor asociado de The Hill. “Él no puede hacer su trabajo de esa manera”.
Tom Cohen, Jake Tapper, Jim Sciutto, Elise Labott, Brooke Baldwin y Jim Acosta contribuyeron con este reporte.

Ted Cruz: Obama has ‘absolutely been abusing his power’ Posted on October 30, 2013 by Cowboy Byte

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) says President Obama has “absolutely been abusing his power.”
In an interview Monday with Fusion, Cruz was asked if the president has been abusing his executive powers. Fusion is a new TV network formed by a joint venture between ABC News and Univision.
“I think he has absolutely been abusing his power and when you have a president who says ‘regardless of whether Congress acts I’m going to force my agenda on the American people,’ that’s wrong, that’s not consistent with our constitutional protections,” Cruz said.

Is Secession’s Time Coming Again?
by CHUCK BALDWIN 

Pat Buchanan recently wrote an intriguing column titled, “Is Red State America Seceding?” His column clearly reveals that an independence/secession movement is spreading globally. Pat rightly observes that in just the last few years some 25 nations have broken free of mother countries and formed their own independent states. And, no, most of these separations did NOT require violent revolution. In addition, talk of secession is currently going on in at least six other regions of the world. And, as Buchanan correctly observes, the spirit of secession is very much alive and well in the United States.
Buchanan writes, “The five counties of western Maryland–Garrett, Allegany, Washington, Frederick and Carroll, which have more in common with West Virginia and wish to be rid of Baltimore and free of Annapolis, are talking secession.”
But people in Maryland are not the only ones talking secession. Buchanan continues to write, “Ten northern counties of Colorado are this November holding non-binding referenda to prepare a future secession from Denver and the creation of America’s 51st state.”
Furthermore, people in northern California are also talking secession. Again, to quote Pat Buchanan: “In California, which many have long believed should be split in two, the northern counties of Modoc and Siskiyou on the Oregon border are talking secession–and then union in a new state called Jefferson.”
Buchanan goes on to say, “Folks on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, bordered by Wisconsin and the Great Lakes, which is connected to lower Michigan by a bridge, have long dreamed of a separate state called Superior. The UP has little in common with Lansing and nothing with Detroit.
“While the folks in western Maryland, northern Colorado, northern California and on the Upper Peninsula might be described as red state secessionists, in Vermont the secessionists seem of the populist left. The Montpelier Manifesto of the Second Vermont Republic concludes:
“‘Citizens, lend your names to this manifesto and join in the honorable task of rejecting the immoral, corrupt, decaying, dying, failing American Empire and seeking its rapid and peaceful dissolution before it takes us all down with it.’”
Pat concludes his column saying, “This sort of intemperate language may be found in Thomas Jefferson’s indictment of George III. If America does not get its fiscal house in order, and another Great Recession hits or our elites dragoon us into another imperial war, we will likely hear more of such talk.”

OBAMACARE WEBSITE COMPANY HAD TIES TO OBAMA FUNDRAISING, MICHELLE OBAMA…
By Jennifer G. Hickey 

CGI Federal, which secured a $678 million no-bid contract to build the Obamacare exchange web portal, has come under increased scrutiny for ties between senior executives and the Obama administration following the disastrous rollout of the healthcare website.
Toni Townes-Whitley, a senior vice president at CGI Federal, is a Princeton classmate of First Lady Michelle Obama, the Daily Caller reported. In addition to being college classmates, both Obama and Townes-Whitley are members of the Association of Black Princeton Alumni.
According to Federal Election Commission Records, Toni Townes-Whitley gave $500 in 2011 and 2012 to Obama’s reelection, and another $1,000 to the Obama Victory Fund.Close access to the White House was also enjoyed by other senior CGI officials, reports The Washington Examiner.
The Examiner reported that visitor logs show that “CGI Federal President Donna Ryan visited the White House six times prior to her company being selected to do the IT design work behind the high-profile website.””Two of the meetings attended by CGI executives were with Vivek Kundra, Obama’s chief information officer. Kundra was a key figure in Obama administration information technology initiatives across the government,” the paper reported.In addition to the $88 million contract awarded to CGI Federal for the health-insurance exchange website, the company has received a total of $422 million in contracts related to Obamacaresince the legislation was signed into law, according to Bloomberg News.Fox News reported a number of occasions in which the company had failed to meet deadlines or experienced botched launches similar to that seen with the launch of healthcare.gov. “In projects stretching from Canada to Hawaii, parent company CGI Group and its subsidiaries ran into complaints about its performance,” Fox reported.Despite the problems with other projects, the company has been awarded numerous government contracts from other federal departments.In April, CGI Federal was awarded a five-year contract worth a total of $11 billion from the Department of Homeland Security and the Coast Guard for Technical, Acquisition and Business Support Services (TABSS), according to Washington Executive magazine.
CGI Federal is also assisting the Department of Housing and Urban Development in the distributing of $1.7 billion relief aid for Hurricane Sandy victims, the Daily Caller reported.In 2012, the company also won contracts worth $15 million with the Environmental Protection Agency and $900 million contract with the U.S. Agency for International Development to design and operate its IT security operations.While the administration continues to state that the Obamacare website “glitches” will be fixed in the coming months, congressional committees are launching multiple investigations into how CGI Federal and other contractors won million-dollar bids and “who knew what and when” there were problems with the website development.On October 23, the House Committee on Government Reform and Oversight Committee sent letters to the 55 contractors, including CGI Federal, who received between $400 million and $600 million to develop the federal exchange and the federal data services hub.The committee is seeking “a detailed explanation of the number, types and amounts of contracts awarded to each company, all communications between the companies and the White House or HHS, and a detailed list of all meetings related to Obamacare implementation.”Committee inquiries also were announced in the Senate. On October 24, Republican Sens. Orrin Hatch of Utah and Charles Grassley of Iowa sent letters to the 47 companies who received contracts related to the development of the website requesting “a detailed analysis of the work each contractor has performed to date, the cost of that work, and timelines and deliverables that the entities had to meet for CMS as part of their scope of work in the development and creation of the website.”

Increasing clouds and thunderstorms for climate alarmists. by PAUL DRIESSEN 

Science-based analyses are gaining ground, despite bureaucratic tricks. It’s about time.
What a month it’s been. Rejecting claims of looming cataclysm, the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) issued Climate Change Reconsidered-II on September 17. This report by 50 experts documents actual planetary temperature, climate and weather in recent decades – and the ways alarmist scientists have manipulated data, graphs, computer models and weather events to make it appear that human influences are much greater than they actually are.
On September 20, the US Environmental Protection Agency proposed tough new standards for carbon dioxide emissions (EPA calls it “carbon pollution”) from future power plants – ignoring the fact that this plant-fertilizing gas is essential for virtually all life on Earth. The standards would effectively prevent construction of new coal-fired plants, which could not possibly comply. Older plants would gradually be closed down and, as the limits are ratcheted downward, even gas-fired power plants would be affected.
The September 26 release of the fifth Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report marked sea changes for this politicized organization. Though it tried to obfuscate the fact, the panel finally admitted that its models don’t work very well and there has been no global warming for 16 years. IPCC chairman Pachauri nevertheless still insisted that there is “definitely an increase in our belief” that humans are “responsible for climate change,” and his organization is now 95% confident it’s been right all along.
On October 15, the US Supreme Court agreed to review a lower court decision that said EPA could use its regulation of automobile emissions as a springboard to impose power plant and other stationary source emission standards. The court said it would not reconsider its 2007 decision that allowed EPA to treat carbon dioxide as a “pollutant” and “threat to human health and welfare.” However, litigants are certain to raise that central issue in their coming arguments before the court.
Meanwhile, Australia’s new Prime Minister has vowed to scrap his country’s carbon dioxide cap-tax-and-trade law. In Europe, families are reeling from energy price shocks, elderly people are dying because they cannot afford proper heating and nutrition, and industry leaders are warning that “green” energy and other climate change policies threaten “a systematic industrial massacre,” as soaring electricity, transportation and natural gas prices make companies less and less competitive in international markets.
All in all, for purveyors of climate alarmism, the forecast calls for increasing cloudiness, severe thunderstorms and stronger hurricanes for months and years to come. That is hardly surprising.
The alarmists have systematically assaulted and corrupted genuine science. They have injected subjective values and ideological tests, while eliminating the most vital components of the scientific method: comprehensive, independent, empirical and transparent processes that, above all, require that hypotheses and models be confirmed by actual observations, or be rejected and replaced by new ones.
What began as an honest inquiry into possible roles of human activities on “global warming” evolved into assertions that mankind alone is responsible for “climate change,” and society’s carbon dioxide and other “greenhouse gas” emissions somehow replaced the complex, interrelated natural factors that have driven global warming, cooling, storms, droughts and other climatic changes throughout geologic history.
Claims of “manmade climate disaster” are now zealously defended by politicians, eco-activists, alarmist scientists, government agencies, and directors of scientific societies in the United States, Canada and Europe – at all costs, to the exclusion of alternative explanations. They reject debate, vilify challengers to alarmist orthodoxy and, by rejecting genuine climate science, make it impossible to predict future climate. Their chief goals are to redistribute wealth, keep “climate chaos” money flowing in – and justify demands that fossil fuels be eliminated, even for developing nations that need them to lift billions out of poverty.
That’s why Brazil, China and India alone are emitting 180 times more plant-fertilizing carbon dioxide than can be attributed to energy from Alberta’s oil sands: 9 billion tons per year versus 50 million! Moreover, reality continues to be contrary to media stories and what alarmists now refer to as “climate disruption.” Even as atmospheric carbon dioxide levels reach 400 ppm (0.04% of all the gases in Earth’s atmosphere), average planetary temperatures have remained stable for 16 years, and heat-related “extreme weather” events are not increasing. That’s not surprising.
The models assume all warming since the industrial revolution began is due to human carbon dioxide; exaggerate climate sensitivity to CO2 levels; program in temperature data that is contaminated by urban heat sources; and simplify or ignore vital climate influences like solar energy variations, cosmic ray fluxes, clouds, precipitation, ocean currents, and recurrent phenomena like El Niño and La Niña. It’s garbage in – garbage out. That’s why theIPCC climate models predicted that average global temperatures would be as much as 1.6 degrees F higher than they actually were over the past 22 years.
In fact, modest 1-3 degree F temperature increases, especially coupled with more carbon dioxide, would help green the Earth, spur plant growth, boost crop yields, and feed more people more nutritiously. However, many solar scientists now believe the sun has entered a low activity or cooling phase that could continue for decades. If that is the case, instead of average global temperatures increasing, they could well decrease a few degrees, which would adversely affect forests, grasslands, growing seasons and the extent of arable acreage. Thankfully, that has not happened so far.
However, extreme cold weather events have occurred in recent years over Europe, northern India, and parts of North and South America. Four of the five snowiest northern hemisphere winters in the last half century have occurred since 2008, closing down villages and killing wildlife, farm animals and people. Antarctic ice is at a record high. Arctic sea ice is back to normal, after the coldest summer in decades.
But these heavy snows – along with the highly publicized 2010 Russian summer heat wave, severe floods in Pakistan that same summer, and the Midwestern United States 2012 summer heat wave – were all part of natural climate variability, as books, research papersand NIPCC reports have documented.
Climate chaos false prophets like Rajendra Pachauri, Al Gore and David Suzuki predicted bigger, deadlier storms and flooded coastal cities, because of global warming. But the opposite has happened. It has been eight years since a Category 3 hurricane hit the United States: Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma, in 2005. That is the most years since the 1860s withno major hurricane making landfall. Tornado frequency is the lowest on record. Droughts are shorter and less extreme than during the Dust Bowl and 1950s.
Sea levels continue to rise at a meager half-foot per century – which translates into a maximum possible increase of just one inch (25 mm) by 2025. Such a modest rise in sea level poses no threat whatsoever to humanity or coastal communities. It’s also a far cry from the 1-2 feet by 2100 that the IPCC predicted in 2007; the nearly 1-3 feet that its 2013 “scientific report” predicts just for 2081-2100; or the ridiculous 20 feet of sea level rise by 2100 that media-hungry climate charlatan James Hansen has forecast.
2013 witnessed the fewest US forest fires in a decade; it ranks second in the fewest acres burned. But such conflagrations are really due to irresponsible policies on forest management and fire suppression.
In short, our Earth’s climate may well be changing, as it has repeatedly throughout history. But the changes are natural, and they have been far from catastrophic – nothing like the wooly mammoth ice ages or Little Ice Age, and no worse than the 1930s Dust Bowl. Moreover, the changes are natural in origin. They are not due to humans, and they are not occurring in ways the alarmists and their models predicted
We need hydrocarbon energy: to lift more people out of poverty, maintain our living standards, and ensure the wealth and technology to adapt to any climate changes that nature may visit upon us (with or without some localized contribution from humans). We also need genuine climate forecasting capabilities, to predict and prepare for those future fluctuations. Climate alarmism undermines all of this.

Este segundo volumen completa la obra Dictaduras y sus paradigmas: ¿Por qué algunas dictaduras se caen y otras no? La economía y el lenguaje y sus vínculos con el dominio dictatorial son los puntos principales examinados. El Tomo II penetra a fondo los sistemas económicos y la desnaturalización del lenguaje y ciertos conceptos políticos claves, para así concluir la exposición de ¿por qué ciertos regímenes despóticos han perdurado en el poder? Las bases quedan establecidas para comprender las reversiones al despotismo por parte de previos países “liberados” y las nuevas dictaduras del siglo XXI. Cualquier análisis profundo sobre regímenes dictatoriales, estaría incompleto sin tomar en cuenta lo expuesto en esta obra.
