‘Climate Hustle’ or ‘American Doomsday’?! Obama climate report panned by scientists – ‘Pseudoscience’ ‘sales pitch’ ‘follow the money’ ‘total distortion’ ‘false premise’ ‘outdated & wrong’ ‘failure’

Climate Depot’s Exclusive Round Up of Reactions to President Obama’s new global warming report. 

Actual NBC News headline: ‘American Doomsday’: ‘White House Warns of Climate Catastrophes’

Climate change is clear and present danger, says landmark US report – ‘National Climate Assessment, to be launched at White House, says effects of climate change are now being felt’

Obama climate report exposed: ‘Leading authors of this report include staffers for activist groups like the Union of Concerned Scientists, Planet Forward, The Nature Conservancy, and Second Nature’ – Heartland’s James Taylor: ‘Few objective climate experts will take this report seriously. Even those scientists who are not overtly affiliated with environmental activist groups were almost uniformly on the record as global warming alarmists before being chosen to write this report. The only real surprise in the report is it didn’t take the opportunity to trumpet the Union of Concerned Scientists’ call for U.S. unilateral nuclear disarmament.

Update: Watch Now: Marc Morano on TV explains Obama’s climate report: ‘It’s bastardizing science’ – ‘This is a political report meant to give cover for a political agenda’ – Morano: ‘Sarah Palin, the former VP candidate, was ridiculed for implying she could see Russia from her house or from Alaska. Well now they say you can see global warming from your back yard or out your window…They have basically said every storm now is proof of global warming. And we must ‘act now’ to stop bad weather. As though acts of Congress or our EPA can stop storms…This is a political report — predetermined science. They selected lead authors from Nature Conservancy, from Union of Concerned scientists from other environmental groups.’

Climate Depot’s Morano Statement on Obama climate report: ‘This report is contrary to peer-reviewed studies and observations’ – Morano: ‘This report is a misdirection. Obama has entered his 2nd term lame duck status and with climate executive orders he does not need Congress to ‘do something’ about global warming.  This report is contrary to peer-reviewed studies and observations. By every measure, so called extreme weather is showing no trend or declining trends on 50-100 year timescales. Droughts, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes are not increasing due to man-made global warming. Why does the report now call ‘global warming’ a new name, so-called ‘climate disruption’? Simple answer: Due to earth’s failure to warm — no global warming for nearly 18 years – another name was necessary to attempt to gin up fear. Now every storm is offered up as some sort of ‘proof’ of global warming. This report is pre-determined science. They chose scientists and activists who agreed with their climate narrative and they endorsed scary predictions of future.’

Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry rips Obama climate report for ‘false premise that any change in the 20th century has been caused by AGW.  Worse yet is the spin being put on this by the Obama admin.’ – Curry: ‘Some of the basic underlying climate science and impacts reported is contradictory to the recent IPCC AR5 reports…the phrase ‘climate change’ is now officially meaningless.  The report effectively implies that there is no climate change other than what is caused by humans, and that extreme weather events are equivalent to climate change.

Prominent scientist reverses belief in AGW: ‘One of the most eminent climate scientists, the Swede Lennart Bengtsson, has defected to the camp of climate skeptics’ – Bengtsson’s conclusion: ‘It would be wrong to conclude from the IPCC report and similar reports that the science is settled.’

Another Dissenter: Geoscientst & former UN Consultant Dr. David Kear declares warming fears ‘based on unfounded unscientific beliefs’ – An ‘innocent gas, CO2, has been demonized and criminalized’

Since no global warming nearing 18 years, John Holdren pushing for global warming to be called ‘climate disruption’

Global Temperature Update: No global warming at all for 17 years 9 months

Year-to-year variability is now climate! Meteorologist Anthony Watts Rips Obama Admin. & Wash. Post: ‘Houston, we have a dumbass problem’ – ‘Nothing else really describes the ridiculousness…in a maddeningly idiotic story from the Washington Post’ - Watts unloads: ‘Let’s indulge them, let’s say it is ALL caused by ‘global warming’. What will they do about it? Tax it? Issue a presidential order? Make emitting CO2 a crime? Like Nature cares what they think or do. Idiots.’

Climatologist Dr. Roger Pielke Sr. rips ‘failure’ of new Fed Report: ‘That much of the media accepted the NCA without questioning its findings and conclusions either indicates they are naive or they have chosen to promote a particular agenda and this report fits their goal’ – Former Colorado State Climatologist Pielke Sr. praises Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry for ‘succinctly showing the major failure of their report.’

1974 State Of The Climate Report – Global Cooling Will Kill Us All – ’1974 climate report said that global cooling was going to cause floods, famines, extreme weather, and would kill us all.’

Scientists Label White House Climate Report ‘Pseudoscience’

Obama Climate Report ‘designed to scare people and build political support for unpopular policies such as carbon taxes’ – Marlo Lewis analysis: ‘National Climate Assessment report: Alarmists offer untrue, unrelenting doom and gloom’ -  ‘The new report is an alarmist document designed to scare people and build political support for unpopular policies such as carbon taxes, cap-and-trade, and EPA regulatory mandates.’

Meteorologist Anthony Watts: Report ‘looks more like a glossy sales pitch from a company that is pushing a product they know people may not need’ — ‘Who WOULDN’T want better weather? Just buy our product.’

Physicist: ‘Another work of science fiction has been produced by global warming alarmist ‘scientists’ — ‘The newly released National Climate Assessment which manages not only to contradict decades of climatic data collected by NOAA and its predecessors but also contradicts the report on climate extremes released last year by the alarmist UN-IPCC.’

‘Follow the money’: Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer pans – Part of report ‘is just simply made up’ – ‘There is no fingerprint of human-caused versus naturally-caused climate change’ – Climatologist Dr. Spencer: ‘Follow the money, folks. This glitzy, 840-page report took a lot of your tax dollars to generate, and involved only those “experts” who are willing to play the game. It is difficult to answer in its entirety because government has billions of dollars to invest in this, while most of us who try to bring some sanity to the issue must do it in our spare time, because we aren’t paid to do it. It is nowhere near balanced regarding science, costs-versus-benefits, or implied policy outcomes. Like the previous two National Assessment reports, it takes global climate models which cannot even hindcast what has happened before, which over-forecast global average warming, which are known to have essentially zero skill for regional (e.g. U.S.) predictions, and uses them anyway to instill fear into the masses, so that we might be led to safety by politicians…we can’t expect government reports, which are written to facilitate desired policy changes, to provide balance’

‘There is no way to know whether ‘The global warming of the past 50 years is primarily due to human activities…’, because there is no fingerprint of human-caused versus naturally-caused climate change. To claim the changes are “unprecedented” cannot be demonstrated with reliable data, and are contradicted by some published paleoclimate data which suggests most centuries experience substantial warming or cooling.’

Report claim: ‘Climate change threatens human health and well-being in many ways, including through more extreme weather events and wildfire, decreased air quality, and diseases transmitted by insects, food, and water.’ Spencer Reaction: ‘Most of this is just simply made up, and ignores the positive benefits of access to affordable energy which far outweigh the negatives. If there has been an increase in anxiety and PTSD, it isn’t from severe weather events…it’s from the relentless fear mongering by politicians and the news media.’

Climatologists: ‘What the National Climate Assessment Doesn’t Tell You’ – PAUL C. “CHIP” KNAPPENBERGER and PATRICK J. MICHAELS: ‘The bias in the National Climate Assessment (NCA) towards pessimism (which we have previously detailed here) has implications throughout the federal regulatory process because the NCA is cited (either directly or indirectly) as a primary source for the science of climate change for justifying federal regulation aimed towards mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. Since the NCA gets it wrong, so does everyone else.’

‘The idea that human-caused global warming is going to increase heat-related mortality is simply outdated and wrong. In fact, the opposite is more likely the case—that is, a warming climate will decrease the population’s sensitivity to heat events as it induces adaptation.’

Meteorologist Joe D’Aleo Rips New Alarmist Report: ‘Get ready for more Junk Science from the highly paid Obama psuedo scientists this week’

Meteorologist Joe D’Aleo: ‘The senate & Obama admin. is filled with scientific illiterates and dangerous agenda driven politicians like John Podesta’ – Obama tries to persuade on Climate: The satellite images viewed by President Obama before a meeting with eight Western governors were stark, showing how snowpack in California’s mountains had shrunk by 86 percent in a single year. “It was a ‘Houston, we have a problem’ moment,” recalled White House counselor John D. Podesta, one of two aides who briefed the president that February day. Obama mentioned the images several times as he warned the governors that political leaders had no choice but to cope with global warming’s impact.

D’Aleo Rips: ‘In 2010/11, near record or record western snowpack lasted well into the summer. They would have been seeing widespread white if he had flown then. Its called weather. Snows improved in March and April in the west. Precipitation in the Sierra is down 38% for the season but is likely to recover with El Nino the next year. Meanwhile ice on the Great Lakes is setting all-time records for this time of year and globally sea ice is at a new record.’

Prof. Roger Pielke Jr. on new fed report: Claim: ‘Risks associated with extreme events like hurricanes are increasing’ – Pielke Jr.: ‘Actually: US hurricane landfalls have decreased by ~25% since 1900′

’600 page litany of doom’: Weather Channel Co-Founder John Coleman slams Federal climate report: A ‘total distortion of the data and agenda driven, destructive episode of bad science gone berserk’ – Coleman: ‘When the temperature data could no longer be bent to support global warming, they switched to climate change and now blame every weather and climate event on CO2 despite the hard, cold fact that the “radiative forcing” theory they built their claims on has totally failed to verify.’ ‘The current bad science is all based on a theory that the increase in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from the exhaust of the burning of fossil fuels leads to a dramatic increase in “the greenhouse effect” causing temperatures to skyrocket uncontrollably. This theory has failed to verify and is obviously dead wrong. But the politically funded and agenda driven scientists who have built their careers on this theory and live well on the 2.6 billion dollars of year of Federal grants for global warming/climate change research cling to this theory and bend the data spread to support the glorified claims in their reports and papers.’

Dem Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid: Koch Brothers are the ‘main cause’ of climate change — Reid: ‘They are one of the main causes of this. Not a cause, the main cause.’

Senator accuses Obama of using global warming as a fund-raising gimmick – Republicans Portray Obama Climate Push As A Distraction – Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) accused Obama of seeing global warming as a fund-raising gimmick. “The president is spending part of today talking about climate change, when [where] Americans want to see a change in the climate is the employment climate,” said Barrasso. “The president continues to be held hostage by large donors to his party.”

Analysis: Fact Checking the White House’s Climate Assessment

Climatologist Dr. John Christy: Obama’s climate report ‘does not bring out in clear view for the public to see how poorly climate models have performed’

Watch Now: ABC’s World News w/ Diane Sawyer does wacko coverage of Obama climate report – Includes skeptic briefly

Warmist Chris Mooney in Mother Jones: Obama climate report ‘shows, unequivocally, that we simply do not live in the same America any more, thanks to climate change. It is a different place, a different country’

Time Mag’s Mike Grunwald: Trace CO2 ‘really could create the end of the world, or at least the end of the world as we know it’

Paper: ‘It has nothing to do with climate, everything to do with power. It’s a green coup’ – Obama using report to ‘simply declare an emergency and wield power without consent or involvement from Congress’ -’It asserts as fact, for instance, the unknowable and unprovable: That the climate’s many effects are “expected to become increasingly disruptive across the nation throughout this century and beyond.’ – ‘It’s not the disruption of the climate that we should be worried about; it’s the disruption of our economy and constitutional rights.’

Analysis: Obama’s Last Shot – Climate Change – And Why It’s Doomed To Fail — ‘Fortunately, there’s some good news too: you don’t need to believe a word because, just like the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s reports, this document is much more a political one than a scientific one.’

No Global Warming Since The Kyoto Treaty Was Rejected

Bill Clinton, Barack Obama weather deja vu – Bob King – POLITICO.com:  ‘In October, 1997, Bill Clinton called Al Roker to the White House to help push global warming alarmism, in an attempt to pass Kyoto’ – Kyoto was unanimously rejected by the Senate, and since the last Al Roker global warming event 17 years ago, global temperatures have fallen nearly 0.1 degrees.

Obama climate report ‘predicts that sea levels could rise as high nearly seven feet by the end of this century’

Bill Nye Battles Crossfire’s S.E. Cupp Over Climate Change ‘Scare Tactics’

Krauthammer: Global Warming ‘Oldest Superstition Around,’ ‘The Rain Dance Of Native Americans’ – ‘Ultimately what we’re talking about here is human sin with pollution of carbon. It’s the oldest superstition around. It was in the Old Testament. It’s in the rain dance of Native Americans. If you sin, the skies will not cooperate. This is quite superstitious and I am waiting for science which doesn’t declare itself definitive but it otherwise convincing.’

George Will: Can we please stop pretending climate scientists are saints in lab coats?

GOP Rep. Lamar Smith: ‘White House Climate Report Stretches Truth’ – ‘This is a political document intended to frighten Americans into believing that any abnormal weather we experience is the direct result of human CO2 emissions’ – Smith: ‘In reality, there is little science to support any connection between climate change and more frequent or extreme storms.  It’s disappointing that the Obama administration feels compelled to stretch the truth in order to drum up support for more costly and unnecessary regulations and subsidies.’

Warmists unhappy with Obama: CNN’s John King, Panelists Hit Obama From Left on Climate Change: ‘Why Did They Wait So Long?’ – CNN’s John King, along with the AP’s Julie Pace and National Journal’s Ron Fournier, targeted President Obama from the left on Tuesday’s New Day over the issue of climate change. King highlighted Obama’s interviews with meteorologists in order to “push his agenda for climate change,” and wondered, “If the President has this power…through executive authority, and this issue is so important to him, why did they wait so long? Why not do this in the first term?”

Obama faces skeptical meteorologists – ‘A 2010 study by George Mason University’s centre for climate change communications found that only 19% of TV weather forecasters accepted that human activity was the main driver of climate change.’

Report Uses Phrase ‘Climate Disruption’ As Another Way To Say ‘Global Warming’

National Climate Assessment claims sea level rise up to 11X faster than past 2 centuries (which show no acceleration) – ‘Contrary to tide gauge and satellite observations’

Gallup Poll editor-in-chief: ‘We find no evidence that [global warming] is a high priority for Americans’

The Supreme Court helps the EPA shut off electricity in America

Podesta: Congress Can’t Stop Obama On Global Warming

Scientists Claim That Sea Levels Could Rise 7 Feet – Government scientists say that the rate of sea level rise has doubled since 1992 and is projected to “rise by another 1 to 4 feet in this century.” But this is only the lower end of how much sea levels could rise. “A wider range of scenarios, ranging from 8 inches to 6.6 feet of rise by 2100, has been suggested for use in risk-based analyses,” according to the Obama administration’s National Climate Assessment (NCA).

Obama Admin’s John Podesta: ‘Zero’ Chance Congress Can Block Obama Agenda – Offers proof of AGW: ‘I’d say that probably look out your window’ – Podesta predicts victory: ‘If you want to try to side with the polluters and argue to the American public that climate change is not happening, today, tomorrow and certainly in the future, that’s going to be a losing argument.’

How Extreme Weather Convinced Obama to Fight Climate Change – Aides say that Hurricane Sandy also shook the president, and changed his thinking on the issue. Sandy was devastating in a sort of disaster flick-meets-biblical End Times sense; floods, fires, winds, and rain swallowed lives, overtook buildings, and knocked out the lights of the nation’s biggest city.

Final fed climate report will present dire picture: ‘We’re already seeing extreme weather and it’s happening now,’ Donald Wuebbles said

Birds and the bees: Obama said to be ‘talking about global warming’s implications with his teenage daughters’

Wash Post: For President Obama, a renewed focus on climate:  ‘Obama will conduct interviews from the White House with local and national TV meteorologists, who will also be briefed by senior administration officials.’

White House Blames ‘Winter Weather’ for Weak GDP Growth


  • frankie “da scarf”

    But Global Warming CAN cause colder temperatures! After all those eons of warming hogging everything up, cold got tired of it, said it was their turn now and made it cooler. I think arming is like democrats…they wanna always hog everything up.

  • Tony Lear

    “The Pause” is one hell of an elephant in the room. This will be the end of Global Warming but don’t celebrate just yet because sometimes things end badly.
    The powers that be are not giving up and the media is on board which is the equivalent of a state organ in an authoritarian system, what if they do a deal ?
    Simple really, just get rid of the Murdoch Media organization in return for business as usual and you would be well on your way.
    The rest would be easily drowned out.

  • Olindo Rocha

    The climate business is too big to fail. Whether the facts are wrong or not in order to keep all those people in the green business employed we need to pretend the facts are real. Big Wind, Big Solar, Audubon, and Sierra Club all need to perpetuate climate change in order to survive. So do all the teachers and universities that have been pushing this for the last decade or so. The facts no longer matter. It’s just the money.

    • Some Name

      Lets just do the alternative, which is to fight the Iraqis for oil.

  • http://drudgereport.com/ Myles Standish

    And guess what?!? The obama administration KNOWS there will be bad weather. There is ALWAYS bad weather. So it’s a no lose for them. Bad weather — SEE! WE TOLD YOU SO!! WE TOLD YOU SO!!
    They give control freaks and morons a bad name!

  • izzycafe

    It’s a new religion for the left.. they want us, the plebeians to pay for existing and to be more specific pay those in power a fee for breathing..The plan, make everyone feel guilty about their “carbon footprint”, forget that these messengers (think Al Gore, Obama) travel in privet jets and live in huge homes..In fact Al Gore said in the 80′s that California would be in the ocean (he has purchased a multi-million dollar home in Malibu, seems like a bad investment what with his predictions). This new panic and guilt will keep their little minions down while they bask in the atmosphere of untouchable I’ve got mine you stay down there and think about what you’ve done to planet earth.

  • jtwasho

    But if they yell a lie loud enough and long enough it becomes truth. Without the real story being told because of the lame stream media being paid off in super spectacular speculation fear mongering, these liars will find a way to blame everybody but themselves for stealing ALL our hard earned money to pay for their pool heating(like Mr. inconvenient truth gore) at a tune of $2400.00 a month. But they got Nobel prizes for lying just enough to convince the brain dead uninformed welfare rats and illegal aliens to vote for them. Lies and deceit and they still can’t show one irrefutable fact. The 1970 lies were that the ice was getting thicker and they needed to dust the polar caps with ash to help melt the ice to prevent an ice age or water shortage. Answer this question all you people who subscribe to the chicken little scheme of human disaster, How much has the water level changed on the oceans? ok, so you don’t get ptsd over worry, IT HAS NOT CHANGED IN OVER 58 YEARS and in that time most of us have learned how to read and can unhook the nose ring the government is leading you around by and research for ourselves. But hey, go ahead and pay a “rain tax” or a snow tax every time it storms.

    • SocialismSTINKS

      This is so true. The left are masters of repeating lies, some of them very big lies, to a uninformed and ignorant public. Hollywood and the MSM are just as uninformed and ignorant, so they pass on the same lies year after year. Eventually, even they temselves believe their lies are true.
      Go ahead and ask a leftist about AGW and they will say its settled science. The only thing that is settled in my mind is that the jackass party and their followers are a bunch of sell out sheep. They couldn’t see a tree if fell on them in the middle of a forest….and part of me thinks that will be the only thing to slap some sense into them.

  • Matt

    ClimateDepot.com is being financed by the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow,
    a nonprofit in Washington that advocates for free-market solutions to
    environmental issues. Public tax filings for 2003-7 (the last five years
    for which documents are available) show that the Committee for a
    Constructive Tomorrow received hundreds of thousands of dollars from the
    ExxonMobil Foundation and foundations associated with the billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife, a longtime financier of conservative causes, including being the primary source of money used to fund attacks against Bill Clinton during the Whitewater and Monica Lewinsky eras of his presidency [1]. According to a report issued by the Union of Concerned Scientists,
    from 1998-2005, approximately 23% of the total ExxonMobil funding for
    the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow was directed by ExxonMobil for
    climate change activities [p. 32].

  • Matt

    ClimateDepot.com is the website of Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow employee Marc Morano, a conservative global warming denier who previously served as environmental communications director for a vocal political denier of climate change, Republican Sen. James Inhofe. Launched in spring 2009, Climate Depot
    claimed it would be “the Senate EPW website on steroids.” The damn thing is a tool of Exxon Mobil and Senator James Inhofe. Its a front.

    • SocialismSTINKS

      The only tool around here is you. If someone decides to fund their own website that backs up their viewpoints it’s ok….as long as they agree with you views…otherwise they are just a tool. The Dumbocratic platform is littered with these kind of tools.
      Learn some history and science and get a clue. Soclialists and the govts are who you should worry about. Last time I checked, the history of genocides and some of the world most horrific acts were created by GOVTS…..most of the left of center. Hundreds upon hundreds of MILLIONS have died to the hands of Zedong, Stalin, Lenin, Pol Pot, Minh, Sung, and the fascist Hitler. Millions more were killed by other Authoritarian and Military govts. These commie loving lefties love to routinely crucify big oil and big business, yet how many people has Exxon or Walmart killed? I can choose to shop at Walmart, but now a days it gets harder and harder for me to really choose my govt or what it decides is illegal. Besides, you don’t think Soros is doing any funding?

  • Matt

    The list presented by Morano in his minority 2007-2008 report has been criticized by Joseph J. Romm for including a significant number of people who are not sufficiently well-qualified to assess climate science, such as author Ray Kurzweil and a number of television meteorologists, such as Steve Baskerville, as well as scientists whose expertise is in geomagnetism.[10] In 2009, Joseph Romm wrote that Morano was “unquotable and uncitable,” adding “Besides his penchant for smear, he just makes stuff up…”[11]

    At the end of 2012 Media Matters for America named Morano the “Climate Change Misinformer of the Year.”[12]

    Funding

    Climate Depot website, run by Morano, is funded by Richard Mellon Scaife,[1] known for his financial support of conservative public policy organizations. CFACT’s tax filings list Morano as the most highly paid member of the organisation.[13]

    • SocialismSTINKS

      And your point? So what does Soros and the Dems fund? Obama goes to more fundraisers then he does golf outings. Do you realize that most of the really rich in this country are Democrats. Just look at the concentration of the world’s billionaires….NY,SF,LA are 3,4,5. Or look at the richest counties and the states they come from….MD, CA, NY, & MA……all heavily Democratic.

  • stevor

    The Moron-in-chief is at least now saying “climate change” instead of “global warming” (but it’s the same to the idiots who like him and the job (obamacare and keeping NDAA, Patriot Act & promoting GMO food) that he’s done.

  • Mervyn

    Well may the United States of America be blessed for its proud scientific achievements that have benefited the world… for nothing will save the White House and its climate report, which is tantamount to amateur “voodoo science”, and is highly embarrassing to the scientific community. Not to put too finer point on it… the report is a bloody embarrassment.

  • SocialismSTINKS

    Since the days of FDR to the days of Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth, the left has been hiding key facts or just plain lying to the American people in order to advance their socialist agenda, gain power, and increase voting rolls. FDR established the ponzi scheme known as SS, something that was handled just fine by states and private charties. However, the Fed was created and soon after the govt engineered a crisis (Great Depression) that hit the banking industry and eventually our economy, thus creating a public more receptive to a Federal govt and their handouts. In 2008, the exact same thing happened and the Great Recession forced yet another Federal govt power grab. The govt decimated the housing and banking industries, only to bail those banks out and Main street got screwed yet again.
     
    So what causes these masses to blindly follow big brother govt? Historical ignorance is the cause. Failure to see that govts, particulary the big and strong forms of govt like Communism are established by the small seeds of Socialism. These communist regimes are responsible for most of all unnatural deaths to ever occur. Hundreds upon hundreds of MILLIONS have died to the hands of Zedong, Stalin, Lenin, Pol Pot, Minh, Sung, and the fascist Hitler. Millions more were killed by other Authoritarian and Military govts. These commie loving lefties love to routinely crucify big oil and big business, yet how many people has Exxon or Walmart killed? I can choose to shop at Walmart, but now a days it gets harder and harder for me to really choose my govt or what it decides is illegal. Milton Friedman once said “Political freedom means the absence of coercion of a man by his fellow men. The fundamental threat to freedom is power to coerce, be it in the hands of a monarch, a dictator, an oligarchy, or a momentary majority.” I’d like to add lazy moochers to that list. The political elite from across the world understand that a great portion of people are nothing more than sheep that value security over freedom and are willing to sell the rest of out for it.
     
    Americans today routinely rely on MSM and Hollyowood for their politically left slanted news. These outlets love to tell us the rich do not pay their fair share, yet most of these evil 1% live in highly Democratic counties like LA,SF,NY,MD,MA. How many millionaires and six figure incomes are there in Federal and even State govts? When looking at the world stage, NY, SF, & LA are very Democratic and are also 3,4,5 in the amount of billionaires. So while the govt and its subsidiary agencies in DC have been adding and growing, as well as taking over another key piece of our economy, the rest of America is losing jobs and welfare assistance rolls have tripled. We have .1% growth in GDP and the lowest participation rate ever. My god, 800K left the workforce in the month of Mar alone! To see the endgame of their agenda, look no further than to the near bankrupt cities of Detroit, Chicago, & Philadelphia. You have areas that have been heavily Democratic for decades, yet what has this done to their local economy and more importantly the people. In Detroit, the unions laid waste to Auto industry and took an entire city with it. These companies were forced to pay off unions and political campaigns, rather than spending money on innovation and improving their products. Friedman also said “The greatest achievements of civilization have not come from government bureaus. Einstein didn’t construct his theory under order from a bureaucrat. Henry Ford didn’t revolutionize the automobile industry that way. In the only cases in which the masses have escaped from the kind of grinding poverty that you are talking about, the only cases in recorded history are where they have had capitalism and largely free trade. If you want to know where the masses are worst off, it’s exactly in the kind of societies that depart from that. So that the record of history is absolutely crystal clear, there is no alternative way, so far discovered, of improving the lot of the ordinary people that can hold a candle to the productive activities that are unleashed by a free enterprise system.”
     
    The left love to tell us that global warming is a problem and use graphical tricks to present their lies. Gore has made hundreds of millions and gets 300k per speech. Yet when speaking on the releation of CO2 to temps he forgets to mention how ice core data from multiple sources and fossil plants actually show that Temp drives CO2 with a 800 year lag, or that C02 makes up only .03% of the air we breathe. They also neglect to mention that the large spike up in temps actually occured 10,000 years ago. They love to panic people because our CO2 levels have doubled from 200-400, but they forget to mention that for most of our history this is extremely low. Our average CO2 levels have been much, much, much higher. I guess that’s why they switched their platform from global cooling, to global warming, and now to climate change. But since temps have cooled in the last 20 years I guess it’s back to global cooling or what ever is “convenient” for Gore and his Dumbocratic platform. Like most arguments from the left, they lack historical facts or any common sense. Go ahead and google “5 million year temp chart” and draw your own conclusions.
     
    Our govt has screwed up SS, Medicare, Medicaid, Post Office, Welfare, & our borders. They’ve spent the last 100 years ruining our education, brain washing our children and trapping good folk of all colors into their web of welfare and “assistance” traps by making sure they don’t have jobs. What did Odumba do when he came into office? Did he concentrate on jobs or the economy…no he lied over and over and did an overnight pass thru of yet another Dumbocratic lie…Healthcare. They’ve lied, spied, experimented and even killed American citizens. They’ve started both the Great Depression and Recession and laid shambles to many jobs and nearly every industry with mounds of regulations. All created by a 250K workforce (used loosely), employed at the Alphabet Agencies of DC, but controlled by the political elite, who only serve to protect and increase their budgets and govt jobs. While DC has been gaining mostly six figure jobs the last 5-6 years..the Fed has been devalueing our dollars, savings and assets through printing and regular Americans having been dropping from the workforce at a record pace. How many TRILLIONS has the govt wasted or thrown away over the years? Then these moron libs and moderates hand over 1/6th of our economy (Healthcare) to an already overbearing Federal govt and expect a different result? This INSANE agenda otherwise know as the Dumbocratic platform, along with Immigration, is by design. Because what sane human being, who has TRULY witnessed history or has any common sense would buy the lies and hypocracies that exist on their ironic platform. The same platform supposedly on the side of blacks, yet history shows they opposed civil rights, while the Repulbican platform had beeen fighting for their cause for decades. Go ahead and google the party platform documents and see for yourself. Who would really approve of the record number of dead, illegal, & others stealing and mooching OUR hard earned tax dollars all so a political elite can increase their voting rolls? In this country today you have 1 worker supporting 1.7 moochers. It’s SUICIDE!

    F.A Hayek, The Road to Serfdom, Chapter 11, “The End of Truth”

    “To make a totalitarian system function efficiently, it is not enough that everybody should be forced to work for the same ends. It is essential that the people should come to regard them as their own ends….which makes the individuals as far as possible act spontaneously in the way the planner wants…totalitarian governments succeed to a high degree in making people think as they want them too.”

    The strategy and tactics of today’s global warming propaganda machine was discussed by Hayek some 70-years ago.
