DeFazio: U.S. Must Regulate Carbon
Emissions and ´Force´ Regulation
on Other Countries

Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/8/2014 1:28:38 PM

Blasting Republican "climate-change deniers" as well as "blathering idiots on talk shows" who joked about the "Arctic vortex," Rep. Peter DeFazio urged Congress to tackle climate change in 2014. He called it one of the "biggest challenges of our time." He wants the Obama administration to regulate carbon emissions as pollution. And "even if we take strong measures here, we´ve got to force those measures on other countries," he said in a five-minute speech on the House floor Wednesday. "Now how are we going to get China and other countries lined up on this?" DeFazio asked. He called trade agreements

Comments:
Oh I´m sure countries like China and India will do exactly as this idiot leftist wants them to do. s/o It´s difficult to manipulate China when they own us. He has the nerve to refer to Republicans as "blathering idiots on talk shows"?? There goes another example of projection. Not only is this guy a blathering idiot, he looks like one too.

The global warming hysterics are 0 for 17 with their predictions of doom, but don´t expect facts get in the way of the socialist narrative. What you can expect is loons like DeFazio to counter facts with ad hominem insults. They are masters of that technique.

To correct earlier posts, DeFazio is an ultra-lib US representative from Oregon, not New York.

No , he is a liberal representative from a blue state - this looks like a headline catching, shining object to help take the pressure off of the Obamacare issue and other democrat headaches - put it on the 2014 theme topics along with income inequality.

Earth´s atmosphere is comprised of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen. The carbon dixoide (CO2) content is a whopping .039%.

Somebody needs to smack these clowns in their global warming vortexes located in their butt-cheeks.

Why yes, given the international political clout we have obtained through the work of the Obama administration, we are well positioned to force our views on other countries - a special perk given we will be hawking scientific garbage.

Thanks to hundreds of leaked, conspiratorial, and way too revealing emails between some of the chief Global Warming “scientists,” the whole frantic, rushed, hair on fire “Emergency” and the Left’s/Democrat/UN/ Environmental activist’s hoped for, all embracing action plan (remind you of the Left’s/Democrats other declared, hair on fire, supposed “Health Care Emergency,” and the rush to pass “Obamacare”?) to stop humankind, civilization, and mother Earth threatening “Global Warming,” (when that term got a bad name, later re-framed as “Climate Change”) has been exposed as based on non-existent, manipulated, and/or fraudulent “evidence.”

The Global Warming Emergency was, in fact, a very calculated, world-wide campaign designed to enable the UN/the Left/Democrats/Environmental activists--in the name of protecting all of us and the environment--to obtain virtually unlimited wealth, power, and control over every aspect of our energy, water, and land use and, therefore, de facto control over every aspect of our lives, behavior, choices, and fortunes. This so that the UN, these “experts” and “scientists,” “environmental activists,” and self-anointed experts like Al Gore could avert the doom supposedly about the destroy us all, all the while raking in enormous amounts of the cash, power, and control.

That more and more people have caught on to this game doesn’t stop Leftist turkeys like this joker, the President, the Secretary of State, and others in power from trying to continue to sound the alarm about Global Warming/Climate Change, in the hope that they can still rope in enough gullible people to have a chance of making their enormous con work and pay off.

This delusional Democrat (redundant) simply wants to be today´s Air Force General Curtis LeMay. DeFazio would love to bomb the coal burning power plants of China, India, Pakistan, Russia and a host other countries. Or as he would say in his best LeMay voice, "Bomb ´em back to the Stone Ages". How else are the Dems going to save the planet other than moving us all into caves where we can be hunter gatherers but without guns.

When has a single one of these ´there-is-too-much-CO2´ nuts ever gotten off the soap box to plant trees? Ever?

Second... it isn´t ´climate change´. If you are barking (mad) about CO2, it´s ´global warming.´ CO2 does not make it cold or make it wild... as a ´greenhouse gas´, it can ONLY make it warmer. If you are moaning one about CO2, you must be too hot.

I could use a dose of that about now.

The Roots of CAIR’s
Intimidation Campaign
National Review Online, by Andrew C. McCarthy    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/13/2014 10:12:32 PM     Post Reply
Author’s Note: This week, capitulating to Islamic-supremacist agitation led by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Brandeis University reneged on its announced plan to present an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the heroic human-rights activist. In my 2010 book, The Grand Jihad, I devoted a chapter to the origins and purposes of CAIR, its roots in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Hamas-support network, and its aim to silence critics of Islamic supremacism. In light of the continuing success of this campaign — despite a federal terrorism-financing prosecution that exposed CAIR’s unsavory background — it is worth revisiting that history. What follows

Sen. Rand Paul says potential White House rival Jeb Bush was inarticulate when he described immigrants who come to the United States illegally as committing an "act of love." In an interview that aired Sunday, Paul said that those immigrants "are not bad people" but added the United States "can´t invite the whole world" inside its borders. Paul, the Kentucky Republican eyeing a 2016 campaign, says Bush should have kept his focus on controlling the U.S. borders. Bush, a former Florida governor, says the GOP cannot demonize immigrants and should show compassion. He described illegal immigration as an "act of love" by people

Despite the testimony of GM CEO Mary Barra that the company "acted without hesitation" to address the ignition switch problems that served as the basis for the latest recall of millions of vehicles, emails show that GM failed to address product problems, some of which Barra herself seemed fully aware of, at least as far back as 2011. The company, often derided as "Government Motors" because of the billions of tax dollars infused into it by President Obama, has been under fire this month because of ignition switch problems linked to dozens of crashes and perhaps as many as 13 deaths.

SAN DIEGO, CA -- Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke via satellite to attendees of San Diego’s Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on Apr. 11, just days after canceling plans to attend in person. Two protest groups gathered outside the San Diego Convention Center for the conference, but for two different reasons. One group of 10-15 demonstrators, promoting a single-payer healthcare system, stood across from the Convention Center. While playing a recording of the folk tune “Medicare for All,” the group spoke to passing pedestrians for approximately two hours. The other protest, directly in front of the Convention Center,

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

Death by solar farms: 71 species of birds

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

Climate change is one of the issues at the top of President Barack Obama’s agenda, and now it’s getting big budget treatment in Hollywood, at least by documentary standards. A nine-part series called “Years of Living Dangerously” will debut this Sunday evening on Showtime–emphasizing stories “from the front lines” of climate change impact. The first episode, now available online, stars actors Harrison Ford and Don Cheadle, two of the series’ correspondents. “It’s the biggest story out there,” said James Cameron, an executive producer of the series, in an interview. Mr. Cameron, who became one of the most successful men in

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice!

It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published
