Climate Parasites: The Answer
to ´Climate Change Deniers´

American Thinker, by William A. Levinson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 2/19/2014 10:13:01 AM

It is a basic principle of psychological warfare that the side that controls the language of the argument controls the argument. Barack Obama´s own website is using this PsyWar technique by calling opponents of his cap and trade agenda "climate change deniers." (snip) The name "climate parasites" performs two jobs with exactly two words. It derails completely the enemy´s position that our side consists of people who are totally ignorant of climate science, or choose to ignore it. We acknowledge without hesitation that climate change is a proven fact of nature. The name also, however, marginalizes the other side by

Excellent article. Unfortunately, it isn´t snake oil salesmen that are scamming individual farmers; it´s the grifters in our government and the White House doing it to us big time.

Ezekiel Emanuel lets the cat out

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 3/6/2014 9:22:14 AM     Post Reply
Obamacare architect Ezekiel Emanuel has made two damning admissions about Obamacare, and he doesn’t even know it. Last year I wrote about Ezekiel Emanuel becoming a “favorite” of mine for his obnoxious and unpersuasive attempts to explain and support Obamacare. He is so arrogant that he presumes rationalizations that work for him will equally persuade others, because, after all, he so much more intelligent than everyone else that his logic is impeccable. Writing in the New York Times yesterday, Zeke told Americans, in an op-ed titled “In Health Care, Choice Is Overrated.” that they really don’t need to have as

Once Barack Obama warned Putin to stand down in the Crimea, its occupation by Russian troops was assured. As Syria showed the world recently, and the Ukraine shows today, Barack Obama needs to learn how to shut his mouth. Yet, who knew when he said, “there will be costs,” we would be the ones to pay? To paraphrase Lincoln, it is better to shut up and be thought weak than to open your mouth and prove it. Someone should tell Barry. Every time his mouth writes a check his butt won’t cash, he weakens America and makes the world a much

   

 

  


 
Senate rejects Obama nominee

Seven Senate Democrats joined with Republicans to deliver a humiliating defeat to President Obama and to the far left race demagogues. Debo P. Adegbile, head of the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, and an avid supporter of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu Jamal, failed to receive confirmation as the next head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, despite operating under the new rules instituted by Harry Reid requiring only a simple majority for confirmation. .

Vladimir Putin isn’t the Easter Bunny. On the other hand, he isn’t Joseph Stalin. It takes a truly fevered imagination to see Russian forces in the Crimea as a prelude to Russian tanks rolling across Europe toward Berlin and Paris. Putin is a power player who cares more about Russia’s national interests, and Russian minorities in his near abroad, than in that mythical force known as world opinion. Would that America had a president who cared more about our interests than in promoting globalism and the left’s social agenda. The Crimea’s population is 60% ethnic Russian. For most of the past 800

Why Hillary Will Flop

Beltway folk hold silly notions. Hillary is deemed formidable, and Republicans should hope she does not win the Democrat nomination in 2016. I disagree. Hillary is a weak candidate for president, and if she is nominated, she will lose the general election. Consider four aspects of a Hillary candidacy in the general election: (1) foreign policy, (2) domestic policy, (3) candidate appeal. The sole executive experience of Hillary in her life has been as Obama’s secretary of state. During those years, she did nothing but leave a dreadful legacy for America

If you want to know why everything is going wrong for Obama and the Democrats, from Obamacare to Ukraine, the answer is simple. Liberals got everything they asked for, from stimulus to “reset.” I know: Crimea River. (snip)Take Obama. Liberals got exactly what they wanted: America´s First Black President. But they also got an Affirmative Action president who didn´t have the wisdom or the authority to change the battle plan once he got into power. It mattered that Obama went full-ahead on the Democrats´ agenda for Obamacare, “stimulus,” green energy after the worst financial crisis in living memory. The economy needed

The Real ObamaCare Horror Story

Recently, Senator Harry Reid addressed the American people from the Senate floor and solemnly claimed that “there’s plenty of horror stories being told,” about ObamaCare. “All of them are untrue, but they’re being told all over America.” In essence, the senator called me and numerous other Americans being impacted by ObamaCare liars. I have been called many names before, but liar was not one of them. My most recent title before Harry accused me of being a liar was Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patient. I was diagnosed in 2012 after a significant episode that attacked both my brain and spinal cord. During this

When JFK looked weak to Nikita Khrushchev, we got the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1963. When Jimmy Carter bear-hugged Brezhnev, we got the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. When Bill Clinton failed to stop Bin Laden for seven whole years, we got 9/11/01 in New York City. And when Obama clowned it up for the world, alienating our allies and bowing down to our deadly enemies, we got this week’s Russian invasion of the Ukraine. And that’s only the beginning. Just you watch. Putin is establishing a naval presence in Venezuela and Cuba. He already has a major naval base in

“What, me worry?” seems to be the operating philosophy of President Obama as a serious crisis brews in Eastern Europe. Daniel Halper reports an almost unbelievable level of Obama nonchalance toward his national security responsibilities in the Weekly Standard: A White House official emailed some reporters to say that President Obama´s team met today to discuss the ongoing situation on Ukraine. It appears President Obama did not attend. (snip)According to Time magazine´s Zeke Miller, Obama skipped the meeting.

The religious freedom legislation that gelatin-spined Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed wasn´t controversial until the Left started lying about it. The state-level civil rights bill that Brewer mothballed Feb. 26 was killed by a media-led propaganda campaign that falsely characterized it as "anti-gay." To no one´s surprise, both of the GOP´s last two RINO losers, Mitt Romney and John McCain, urged a veto. (Snip) The legislation that Brewer fashioned into an origami rainbow was aimed at discouraging activist thuggery. It is necessary because progressive activists have become increasingly aggressive and even sadistic during the Obama

Obama: the Pen,

Barack Obama is a failure as president, and with a little less than 3 years before he leaves office, people are starting to notice. On the economy, he has presided over the worst economic recovery from recession since WW II, and the lowest labor force participation rate in decades. He spent a trillion dollars of ‘stimulus,’ rewarding political backers and cronies, while exploding the budget line. This he touts as a great success, saving the nation from depression and saving or creating 6 million jobs. The ‘saved or created’ thing is perfect when trying to cast failure as success.

Culture of corruption

Evidence is accumulating of a corrupt bureaucratic culture in many, if not all, federal agencies. Revelations of lavish meetings at fancy hotels, featuring stupid but expensive custom-made videos emerged in the last couple of years. But even worse, cases of bureaucrats stealing from taxpayers by taking time off while still being paid high salaries have been reported recently, with their supervisors knowingly turning a blind eye to the taxpayer rip-off. The EPA’s highest-paid employee pretended to be a CIA agent and defrauded the taxpayers of about $900,000 (snip) Officials in two Treasury Department bureaus fraudulently enriched themselves at taxpayer expense,

During a hearing of the House Oversight Committee into allegations that the Internal Revenue Service scrutinized conservative groups’ tax-exempt status filings unduly, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) exploded at Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (D-CA). Cummings charged that the way in which the proceedings were being conducted were “Un-American.” In apparent protest, Issa then walked out of the committee hearing. While making a statement before the committee, Issa stood up and asked Cummings to yield. “If you will sit down and allow me to ask a question,” Cummings insisted. “I am a member of a Congress of the United States of America.” “I am

More than one million U.S. schoolchildren stopped buying school lunches during the 2012-2013 academic year, after new nutrition standards championed by first lady Michelle Obama took effect. The Government Accountability Office, a watchdog agency inside the federal government, told members of Congress in a little-noticed January 28 report that participation in the school lunch program declined by 1,086,000 in that one year, the biggest drop on record. [Snip] The first lady rolled out the law´s final regulations in January 2012 with a presentation linked to her ´Let´s Move!´ children´s health initiative. Changes took effect that fall.

The chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus is calling for House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to be stripped of his gavel for his behavior at a contentious IRS hearing on Wednesday. Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) told Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Thursday that Issa’s conduct in the hearing — which included cutting off the microphone of Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), the ranking Democrat — amounted to “an affront to the expectations of the American people.” Fudge also said Issa should apologize on the House floor. “The American people have the right to expect that their elected leaders be held to the

A plea for about a dozen people who know who they are: Will you see “12 Years a Slave” now? It just won the Oscar for Best Picture. It just came out on DVD. Please see it. I’ll even spring for the popcorn. You see, I keep encountering folks, mostly African-American, who have decided that they won’t -- or can’t -- see this movie. Some say they don’t want to be made angry. Others say they don’t want to be traumatized.

Where Lois Lerner goes, drama follows. On Wednesday, the former IRS officer again invoked the Fifth before the House Oversight Committee. That precipitated a heated exchange between the committee’s Republican chairman, Darrell Issa, and Democratic ranking member Elijah Cummings, who called the hearings “un-American.” And that spat has become the story. No doubt that is exactly what Cummings had in mind. Because it distracts attention from the substance of the hearings — and from the questions raised by e-mails and public remarks Lois Lerner wrote, received or made when she was IRS Director of Tax Exempt Organizations. The Weekly Standard reminds us

House Speaker John A. Boehner said Wednesday that Lois G. Lerner, the woman at the center of the IRS targeting scandal, will eventually have to testify or will be held in contempt of Congress. Speaking to reporters just minutes after Ms. Lerner again invoked her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination at a committee hearing, Mr. Boehner said he would wait for a final report of what happened. But he said he believes she will eventually have to talk. “I’ll wait for a report from Chairman Issa about what happened or what will happen. But at some point I believe that

WASHINGTON — Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers who are perhaps the best-known patrons of conservative Republican politics, are bespectacled and in their 70s. They look genial enough. But Democrats are embarking on a broad effort that aims to unmask the press-shy siblings and portray them, instead, as a pair of villains bent on wrecking progressive politics. On Thursday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is starting a digital campaign that will use Internet ads and videos, as well as social media, to tie Republican Senate candidates to the policies and actions of the Koch brothers. Its slogan:

In a strongly worded letter to House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio), the Congressional Black Caucus called for Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to be stripped of his House committee chairmanship after he abruptly ended a hearing Wednesday morning over the objection of Democrats in the room. "Mr. Issa is a disgrace and should not be allowed to continue in a leadership role," wrote Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), who leads the Congressional Black Caucus, in the letter to Boehner. The Wednesday hearing on the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting controversy quickly turned tense. When former IRS official Lois Lerner invoked her Fifth Amendment

The crowd gathered at the Conservative Political Action Conference rose to its feet as Chris Christie exited stage left. The New Jersey governor, who has been dogged by a scandal stemming from revelations that members of his administration conspired to shut down traffic lanes leading on to the George Washington Bridge, came to CPAC on Thursday in need of a reception like that, and the party faithful delivered. Christie’s remarks were highly anticipated, not only because of the lingering scandal but also because CPAC brass dinged him last year by leaving him off of the guest list.

President Obama strongly denounced the Senate on Wednesday for failing to confirm a top nominee to the Justice Department. In a statement released by the White House, Obama said Debo Adegbile´s defeat is a "travesty" and is based on unfair attacks. "The Senate’s failure to confirm Debo Adegbile to lead the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice is a travesty based on wildly unfair character attacks against a good and qualified public servant," Obama said. "Mr. Adegbile’s qualifications are impeccable." Obama said the main attack used against Adegbile -- Republicans denounced his work on behalf of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal
