Yesterday, the first green President ever elected decided to go “green” right out of the box. Barack Hussein Obama addressed the “International Climate Change Summit” held in California. The event is being hosted by “RINO kiss up” Arnold Schwarzenegger. (ALWAYS check your spelling with that last name during these turbulent times..) An article about the Obama address said that his speech took place “through the magic of video.” Anyone familiar with the primary and Presidential election process of 2008 is quite well acquainted with Obama’s gift for “magic” and illusion regardless of whether it was live or on video..
Obama was said to “encourage governors and others today to tackle global warming.” Obama’s ridiculous “carbon footprint” from his campaign jet referred to as “Air Farce One” aside, the “urgent” need to address the “globaloney warming” is obviously more important than “tackling” such pesky things as the economy, for example.
Obama was still in full “over promise, under deliver” mode from the campaign. After all, he was talking to an assemblage of true believers who shiver and wet themselves over the dreaded “Al Gore disease”. All that you need for the left to believe is a heightened state of necessary “crisis” and a sufficient amount of the corresponding flatulence and hyperbole..
“Few challenges facing America -and the world- are more urgent than combating climate change”.. Meanwhile, as Dorothy sings “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” in the background of the Obama video, all of those union workers at the big three auto makers who followed their commandants marching orders to the letter on Election Day would probably disagree as to what is actually “urgent” right about now.. These constituents are of no consequence anymore since the election is over with, now the “issues” and their related lobbyists are what are of the utmost importance.
“The science is beyond dispute and the facts are clear..” This so-called “science” has been forwarded by “scientists” like.. Al Gore. An array of “real scientists” wholeheartedly disagrees with the liberal’s specious speculations. Richard Lindzen and Timothy Ball contend, with “evidence”, (something that we will soon find on the liberal endangered species list..) that scientific dissenters have seen their “grant money disappear” and “academics remain silent for fear of reprisals” within the former bastions of “free speech” known as the campus.. The “science” is beyond dispute as long as the prevailing necromancy is genuflected before and just for the record, the “facts” are anything BUT “clear”.. As liberals, verifiable proof is of no consequence and the verifiable proof of that statement can be found in the results from the most recent election.
Conversion to the hokum is apparently either unavoidable or mandatory with the liberal marionettes. Even Billy Bob Clinton back on January 30th of this year in Denver said, “Everybody knows that global warming is real”.. All that that statement does is bring into question the veracity of his “I didn’t inhale” statement from a few years back..
Obama contends that “our dependence on foreign oil weakens our economy and threatens our national security..” Let’s try to get beyond the fact that foreign oil, the economy and national security have nothing to do with “global warming”, so lets dissect the statement assuming for a moment that it is true..
“Our dependence on foreign oil”.. If that were an actual concern of the President to be, he would push for more off shore drilling and for the immediate production of plans to tap into ANWR. “Real scientists” have speculated that there is anywhere from nearly six to sixteen billion barrels of crude oil available. “Our dependence on foreign oil” is obviously less important than ANWR’s “calving ground of the Porcupine caribou”. I will go out on a limb and speculate that that is due to the preponderance of Democratic votes that have surfaced in Alaska for Obama that came from registered Porcupine caribou in the area both alive and dead.
“Weakens our economy”.. Democrats Bill Clinton and Barney Frank (for starters..) have done more to weaken the economy than any bogus silly science forwarded by any and all failed Presidential ass-pirants.. In case the Senator hasn’t had the time to read the “Obama House Organ” known as the New York Times, this imported oil is now selling as gasoline at well under half of what it had a few months ago when we suffered through the last bogus “man made” shortage. Fictitious “shortages” should never be an “economic” issue ever again and it hasn’t been an issue for a few months..
“Threaten our national security”. This is liberal speak for “Middle Eastern despots/terrorists”. Isn’t it cute when the liberals talk about “national security”? The left doesn’t even have the courage to call the terrorists what they are so there is very little chance that they would actually consider blowing any number of them up regardless of their desire to do the same to any number of innocent Americans. (That is how you actually go about positively effecting “national security”.) Liberals can’t even talk tough so all of their hot air strikes from the “U.S. Liberal Retaliation” are nothing more than empty, hollow and meaningless words which are themselves a liberal specialty..
Obama wants to “catalyze” private sector efforts when it comes to our clean energy future. That is nothing more than the rearranging of the threats he made in November in of all places, San Francisco, where he said that his policies would bankrupt anyone who wanted to build a coal burning facility. “Catalyze” means “do things my way or prepare to file chapter 11..”
“We will tap nuclear power, while making sure that it is safe”.. Just in case the former Senator has been too busy to notice and/or if he has possibly stopped getting his talking points from the “impartial” media, I have a news flash for him: nuclear power IS safe. Even if you factor in the overly exaggerated non-catastrophe at Three Mile Island, more people have died as a result of Ted Kennedy’s driving than have died in the HISTORY of nuclear power’s usage within the United States.
Again, Obama said that foreign oil makes us less “secure”. Yet he wants to immediately close Guantanamo Bay and bring all of the terrorists housed there into the United States so that they may have criminal trials as opposed to military trials. Bringing confirmed terrorists into the United States for “trials” does nothing more than two things. One, it saves the “enemy combatants” the gas money or the plane fare when their “court appointed lawyers” find some obscure loophole that allows them to walk free so that they can continue their mission. Two, it adds another one to two percent to the number of terrorists that the liberals have already allowed into this country based on “fairness and inclusion”..
Obama says that he will “invest” fifteen billion dollars a year and he will generate five million new green jobs that can’t be outsourced”. As is always the case, no mention is made of where this sixty million dollars will come from but I firmly contend that the election of 2008 created at least one green job that the rest of us wish COULD be outsourced..
