Exposed: The Whitehouse-White House Inquisition Against Global Warming ‘Deniers’

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse recently had a Huff-Po tantrum. The Rhode Island Democrat was miffed that people criticized him and equally liberal Senate colleagues Barbara Boxer (CA) and Ed Markey (MA) for attacking skeptics of dangerous manmade climate change like Spanish Inquisition tormentors.

He says the skeptic community’s “overheated” response mischaracterized their motives and muddled their important messages: Global warming is the most serious threat we face today.  Financial incentives can affect behavior, which is why the public and Congress need to know who funded the skeptics’ research. And companies that produce harmful products want to foment uncertainty about well-established health and safety risks: fossil fuel interests and climate chaos skeptics are just like the tobacco industry.

These senators are abusing their power of office to threaten and silence honest scientists, and destroy their funding, reputations, and careers. It’s pure Saul Alinsky, as practiced by Greenpeace, Harry Reid, and the other White House: “In a fight almost anything goes. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” And the vilified scientists and their friends are just supposed to take it, the senators seem to think.

In reality, the only thing overheated is Mr. Whitehouse’s temper – and the increasingly preposterous rhetoric about an overheating planet. Climate change is altering our music. A 0.1 degree Celsius change in ocean temperatures has caused whales to migrate a month earlier than 30 years ago. Warming oceans will mean the end of fish and chips! Lord knows what other “disasters” await – all because of fossil fuels.

The absurdity of this fraudulent fear mongering and its total irrelevance to our daily lives explains why Americans consistently put climate change at the bottom of every list of concerns. The very idea that governments can decree an idyllic climate is equally crazy; that has happened only once in human history.

No wonder Mr. Obama is repackaging the climate issue under the equally false and ridiculous mantras of “ocean acidification” and “carbon pollution” causing allergies and asthma. Our oceans are not becoming acidic. It’s not “carbon” – it’s carbon dioxide, the miracle molecule that makes all life on Earth possible. And neither CO2 nor planetary warming has anything to do with allergies or asthma.

Climate science was supposed to examine the effects that humans might be having on Earth’s climate. But anti-fossil fuel activists turned it into the notion that only humans affect the climate – and that the powerful natural forces that caused countless, sometimes devastating climate fluctuations in the past no longer play a role. Climatology was also supposed to be about the scientific method:

Pose a hypothesis to explain how nature works. Test the hypothesis and its predictions against real-world evidence and observations. If the premise is valid, the evidence will back it up. If the data and evidence are out of synch with the carbon dioxide/greenhouse gas thesis, come up with another hypothesis.

By now, it’s obvious that the “dangerous manmade global warming” thesis, and computer models based on it, do not explain what is happening in the real world. The planet stopped warming 18 years ago, despite rising fossil fuel use and CO2 emissions. The models don’t work; their predictions are completely out of whack with reality. Instead of more hurricanes, no Category 3-5 has hit the USA since late 2005.

So the alarmists changed their mantra to “climate change” and “weather disruption.” But this is bogus: it tries to blame every change and event on fossil fuels. The thesis can never be proven or disproven, which means it’s a religious tract, not a scientific analysis. Alarmists don’t have a leg to stand on scientifically.

That’s why they refuse to debate the science and vilify climate crisis skeptics. It’s why Democrats became so frustrated with Dr. Judith Curry’s expert testimony at a recent House Science Committee hearing that they left the room. They couldn’t stand it when she said the “central issue” is the extent to which recent (and future) planetary warming or other climate changes are driven by manmade greenhouse gas emissions, “versus natural climate variability caused by variations from the sun, volcanic eruptions, and large-scale ocean circulations.” And they really couldn’t tolerate her noting that President Obama’s pledge to slash U.S. emissions by 28% will reduce warming by just 0.03 degrees Celsius by 2100.

Climate change and extreme weather risks are real, but carbon dioxide doesn’t cause them today any more than throughout history. Aside from Pleistocene-style ice ages, we can adapt or respond to events – including storms, droughts, heat waves, and extreme cold – if we have affordable, reliable energy, strong economies, and modern technologies. The real threats to jobs, health, welfare, and lives come from anti-fossil fuel policies imposed on the pretense that they will stabilize weather and climate. Forecasting future climate changes will be equally impossible if we remain fixated on carbon dioxide, and ignore the solar, ocean circulation, cosmic ray, and other powerful natural forces that actually affect Earth’s climate.

Senator Whitehouse’s suggestion that climate chaos skeptics should be tarred and feathered with tobacco industry apologists is despicable demagoguery. So are his comments about funding realist research.

The skeptics’ funding was never secret. It was always an open book, available to anyone who cared to look. But since he brought up the money issue, let’s look at a few aspects that he studiously ignores.

Alarmist research is all about carbon dioxide, greenhouse gases, and fossil fuels – precisely because financial incentives can and do affect behavior. Alarmists get a thousand times more money than skeptics. Climate Crisis, Inc. received hundreds of billions of dollars in government, industry, foundation, and other money during the past couple decades. The US government alone spent over $186 billion in tax dollars on climate, “clean energy,” and renewable energy projects from 2009 through 2014. Applicants know they won’t get grants if their theses and conclusions do not support climate alarmism and regulatory agendas.

Billions more went to government agencies that coordinate these programs and develop anti-hydrocarbon regulations. These bureaucrats don’t merely search health and scientific files to cherry-pick papers that support their agenda. They deliberately hunt only for supportive documents (many of which they pay for) and actively ignore, suppress, and vilify research that focuses on (or even just discusses) natural forces.

Then the EPA and other agencies pay the American Lung Association, scientific advisory committees, and other activists millions of dollars a year to rubberstamp their regulatory decisions. Even more destructive of our scientific method and political process, countless millions are also being funneled to climate chaos researchers and Big Green pressure groups via secretive foundations, laundered through front groups from Russian oil interests and employed to further enrich billionaires like Warren Buffett.

The scandalous system has turned hardcore environmentalism into a $13.4-billion-per-year operation and represents an unbelievable abuse of our hard-earned tax dollars and the tax-exempt status of numerous foundations and activist groups. Cooperate and get rich; resist, and get the Whitehouse inquisition.

As a result, instead of science, we get opinion, propaganda, spin, pseudo-science, and outright fraud – all designed to advance a anti-fossil fuel, pro-renewable energy agenda that kills jobs and economic growth, endangers human health and welfare, and puts radical regulators and pressure groups in control of our lives, livelihoods, and living standards. It also further corrupts our political system.

These Big Green companies, foundations, pressure groups, and government unions give our politicians millions of dollars in campaign cash and in-kind help, to keep them in office and the gravy train on track.

The League of Conservation Voters collected $90 million in foundation grants from 2000-2013; the LCV Education Fund pocketed $71 million more. The LCV, Sierra Club, NRDC, SEIU, AFSCME, Kleiner Perkins, and allied groups are all big Whitehouse (and Obama White House) campaign donors.

Do Senators Whitehouse, Boxer, and Markey plan to investigate those financial incentives and abuses?

Concerned citizens should ponder all of this the next time they vote.

Watch The LOL Video That Scorches Hillary, Turning Her Own Radical Hero’s Rule Against Her

Image Credit: YouTube/Reason TV

Young liberal activist Hillary Rodham was quite taken with community organizer Saul Alinsky, whose book “Rules for Radicals” has often been referenced in connection not only with the principles and practices of Hillary–but also of Barack Obama.

So impressed was Miss Rodham by Alinsky’s teachings that she made him the subject of her 92-page senior thesis for Wellesley College.

In his “Rules for Radicals,” published in 1971, Alinsky offered the following as Rule #5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”

Taking that guidance to heart, the folks at Reason TV have produced another brilliant video mocking Hillary Clinton’s recent news event at the U.N. in which she tried to defend her use of a private email account managed on her personal server for conducting official government business.

In a clever parody of a widely seen TV commercial advertising PC Matic software for computer security, the Reason TV video introduces us to “DC Matic” and its supposed advantages for those wanting to get rid of potentially incriminating emails.

Obama’s Ebola Magnet: Make Africans US Citizens!

obamaorders

Obama seems bent on fanning the flames of Ebola infections in the United States, but why? As his mentors Saul Alinsky and Rahm Emmanuel said, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” Alinsky, in his book “Rules for Radicals,” urged radicals to become community organizers to overload welfare and other systems to such a degree that a Constitutional Republic can no longer function and will have convert into a Socialist State.

As if we didn’t have enough problems already from all the insane liberal systems already implemented and overloading our government, now Obama has put into position a huge new magnet to draw in thousands of illegal immigrants from Liberia, Sierra Leon, and Guinea. He has granted squatters rights to existing foreign nationals from these three Ebola-plagued nations to stay in the United States indefinitely.

Many had short term visas and were due to return to their countries, but Obama is now extending them and expediting their approval to become U.S. citizens so that they don’t have to return to their Ebola-ravished countries.

While on the surface that may sound noble, think about it. By granting accelerated citizenship to foreign nationals from the biggest Ebola stricken nations in the world, he is just daring the rest of their friends and family members to get into the United States anyway they can, including traveling to Mexico so they can walk across the intentionally porous Southern border. And once these West Africans arrive, they get immediate expedited citizenship–regardless if they come in with Ebola.

Talk about setting up what may be the most powerful, irresistible immigration magnet ever; who could resist? Would you rather stay in a 3rd world country that is turning virtually everyone away from their hospitals? Or would you hightail it to the good ol’ US of A? You know, the land of milk and honey–and free Ebola care–compliments of the American taxpayer who used to work two jobs to support our bloated welfare state–but who now may need to work three jobs to fund welfare payouts including hospitalization for incoming new unemployed U.S. citizens.

Do You Think Obama's Decision To Send National Guard Troops to Africa To Fight Ebola Is A Good Idea? in Western Journalism's Hangs on LockerDome

Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying Obamacare has failed so badly that he’s reached such a point of desperation that he needs to import foreign nationals to buy Obamacare, but he might be flying in foreign nationals to get free Obamacare–as long as they vote Democrat.

And speaking of creating millions of newly minted Democrats, Obama has added a special expedited citizenship designation for special classes of people, as listed on the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services web site including students who are experiencing severe economic hardship.

And immigration petitions for immediate relatives. Hello? There are many West Africans with huge families. This alone is a mega game changer. Why is this happening? Or the bigger question might be, why is virtually no one putting up any opposition to this new ‘hope and change’ Obama is handing out to everyone other than existing employed U.S. citizens? You know, us working ants who are required to pay for all of Obama’s mischief.

Democrats Keep Winning Elections Because Of This One Dirty Secret That Will Leave You Furious

obama shh

If you haven’t noticed lately, Democrats are crushing Republicans in debates. But there’s a very logical reason for this…

It’s not that Democrats are better debaters… or that they present better options for economic and social issues. Heck, they’re not even more charismatic.

The issue runs much deeper than that.

This week, I’m giving a special presentation to the Center for Sovereignty Studies on the greatest deception that goes unnoticed by most conservatives. But I want to let Wall Street Daily readers in on this wicked secret first…

Once this gets out, the Republicans will have another weapon to protect America’s values. As you’ll see, it’s practically black magic.

Abracadabra

Most Americans are under a mass hypnosis, thanks to our media. So they never really stop to think about the ideologies or forces that influence our politicians. They falsely expect these people to share their same ideas about basic values.

Even Republican politicians are guilty of having this false expectation.

In my 30 years of political warfare, I’ve come to embrace this truth – a truth highlighted in Richard M. Weaver’s book, “Ideas Have Consequences”… In America, we’re currently in the midst of a protracted war of ideas. The opposing sides just don’t have much in common anymore.

When we penetrate the deception of media, we’ll come to realize that there are really only two sides to the conflict. But it’s not the red versus blue split that you may have in mind…

On one side, we have those who believe in unchangeable right and wrong.

And on the other side, we have those who believe morality is subjective, changing, and flexible.

While one’s code of ethics remains constant, the other’s is ever-changing.

In the end, these two opposing worldviews play by entirely different rules. And this disconnect is exactly what has disadvantaged the conservatives in the media lately.

The Book of “Power Rules”

You see, the majority of the mainstream media consists of people who’ve rejected traditional values and morality, seeing them as subjective.

As the great conservative leader Senator H.L. “Bill” Richardson wrote: “Those of us [who] espouse traditional American values must understand that contemporary confrontational politics isn’t of our making. It is, however, the foundation of the tactics successfully practiced by leaders of the left. We must understand their methodology in order to combat them effectively.”

Richardson was one of the first to recognize how the ideas of Saul Alinsky have completely transformed the Democratic Party and the left of center political culture. They embraced what are known as the “power rules.”

These power rules are what allowed both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama to win two terms in the White House. The Alinsky power rules have transformed American political culture and debate.

Conservatives are taught as children to obey the traditional morality of our past. This makes them totally unprepared for modern debate. They believe such outmoded concepts such as: Don’t tell lies… respect the ideas of others because they are also God’s children… do unto others what you would have them do unto you… don’t be quick to judge… and nobody likes a braggart.

The Fundamental Destruction Of America…For Dummies

Photo credit: Fresh Conservative (Creative Commons)

As I get older, I find myself reflecting back more and more to the way that America used to be.

I can remember the celebrations of our founding, where people cried while reciting the Pledge of Allegiance or the singing of the National Anthem. Everyone stood up along parade routes while the members of VFW’s and American Legions passed, some saluting them and most just thanking them for their service and for protecting our freedom. That was American exceptionalism at it’s finest. The ongoing cheers ensued because we all knew that America was great, because she was good.

Unfortunately, over the course of history, America has lost her way. With the onset of the great wars, a few in positions of power saw how a small group of insane people could control total populations through fear, intimidation, and poverty–and they wanted that power.  Since the world wars, however, each and every President has contributed to the fundamental destruction of America, either willingly or unwillingly due to political pressure.

Those who want this power in modern time have resorted to the tactics of Saul Alinsky, a prominent mob figure from Chicago who published the book “Rules for Radicals”–a guide for intimidating and eliminating opposition to progressive (communist) ideas. They have also resorted to the Cloward and Piven strategy for effectively collapsing the government, without violence, by overloading the economic system with high unemployment, low labor participation rates, and an extremely high demand for government-provided welfare benefits. The final push being the major influx of illegal aliens across our southern border.

My fellow Americans, we are now in the end game–the end of America as we know it. Our culture is being changed on a daily basis by demanding that we accept those who don’t belong here. That we accept life choices that are not in line with the Godly principles that our nation was founded on. That we accept the lawlessness, greed, corruption, and control that is being forced upon us by a soulless, power-hungry few at the top of our government. If we do not comply with their wants and desires, we will face extinction, according to them. I am willing to take my chances and stand for America as it was founded. Are you?

As always, fellow Patriots, stay safe and be aware of your surroundings.
