Just 100 Days To Take America From Democracy To Socialism!

Just 100 Days To Take America From Democracy To Socialism!
Obama Leads USA Onto Ash Heap Of History In Record Time!
By: J. D. Longstreet

While the Mainstream Media fawned for several days over the wonders the Messiah Obama has wrought in his first 100 days in office as the USA’s First Socialist President, we have been near to nausea! There is nothing like a leftist/ socialist President to bring out the sycophant lapdogs of The Left and have them howling in unison. And that is, I think, a good description of the MSM’s reporting on the miracles of Obama, “The One”, the past few days on all the media they control, which is darn near all the media.

The MSM reminds us so much of a child who thinks he, or she, is so much smarter than his parents… until he grows up. And they find, as a famous writer once said: “The older I get the smarter my Dad gets”! Eventually those in America’s media will grow up, but, upon adulthood they will be replaced with another group of young leftists right out of the cookie-cutter leftist journalism schools at our leftist universities and leftist colleges in America. That’s the way it works, dear reader. There is NEVER a shortage of leftist journalists because the left has factories where they are made!

The Messiah image of Obama continues to be polished and held up into the light so that it sparkles and blinds the beholders so they do not see what is behind that eye-scorching dazzle.

But, there will come a time in the not too distant future when the truth of the empty suit that is “The Obamissiah” will become evident

It is the young, the inexperienced, the ignorant, and the leftist/socialists among the American electorate who support this man. And that is frightening. Why? Because they are present in such vast numbers. To know that your country is ruled by such lightweights is a scary thing. Add to that the evidence of Obama’s efforts to move the US farther to the left, and deeper into socialism and secularism and you have a formula for disaster for this formerly great country.

Redistribution of the nation’s wealth, universal healthcare, embracing the global warming hoax, plans for nuclear disarmament, nationalization of America’s financial system and auto industry, and the list goes on. What else do you need before you will accept that Obama has taken America, in 100 days, from a democratic nation to a socialist nation? There it is.

Of course, we haven’t mentioned Obama’s request to have the “IHS” on the stage at Georgetown University’s Gaston Hall covered before he would speak there on April 14th. That, alone, should tell you all you ever need to know about the man. (For those few of you not versed in the Christian faith… “IHS” is a symbol for the name of “Christ.”) You can read the story on this and what Representative John Fleming, Republican of Louisiana had to say on the floor of the US House of Representatives at HERE.

In the article, at, Representative Fleming is quoted as saying: “I have a concern about the very sharp turn to socialism that’s happening in our government.” Fleming is further quoted as having said: “Where you see socialism, you see a decline in Christianity and religion in general.” The Congressman is on the money with those remarks.

America has problems today, dear reader, that makes our financial problems pale in comparison. America is on the extreme verge of losing her soul! What, you may ask, is the causation of this dilemma? LUST, POWER, and GREED. Put another way: The lust for power, and the greediness of the political left to lay claim to all of it!

One hundred days, and one man, was all it took to bring America down. The socialist/communists have always said they would bring America down from INSIDE. They have succeeded.

Joe Stalin once said: "America, is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within." Soviet dictator Krushchev once said: "We can't expect the American people to jump from capitalism to communism (socialism), but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses (Incrementalism) of socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have communism".

When you “look up” socilaism in your dictionary you will see that socialism is defined as the last stage before full blown communism. THAT’S how close we are today.

One hundred days was all it took. One hundred days.

Is the Fairness Doctrine coming to the INTERNET?

Is the Fairness Doctrine coming to the INTERNET?

We have warned of this as a possibility for a very long time now. It seems we conservative bloggers are giving the lefties a hard time and, anytime that happens, they bring down their mailed fist in an attempt to destroy anyone who disagrees with THEIR socialist philosophy.

You can read the latest on this at World Net Daily
HERE. Oh, and you naughty people who send those angry e-mails must have hurt some lefties feelings, ‘cause they want to make you stop! You are a really mean person, bullying people, and all!! So they have an answer for that, too. That is to refuse to allow you to send an angry e-mail for 24 hours. That’s covered in the same story at World Net Daily.

Solar Scenarios ... By: Alan Caruba

Solar Scenarios
By Alan Caruba


The end of the world has always been a popular theme for various religions and for doomsayers in general. The Mayan calendar identifies December 12, 2012 as the end of the world. In the second century B.C., the Jewish cult, the Essenes, framed it as a battle between good and evil, and the Book of Revelations offers its own scenario.

The latest version, of course, is Al Gore’s prediction that the Earth is on fire from “global warming” and we have to buy his carbon credits to avoid it. Even President Obama is preaching this absurd, baseless nonsense in order to drum up votes in Congress for his economy-killing “cap-and-trade” scheme to tax all energy use.

A real, science-based apocalyptic scenario exists and humanity has had a taste of it over its brief 10,000 years on Earth. It has to do with solar cycles during which there is a significant reduction of magnetic storms, otherwise known as sunspots, on the engine of our galaxy. These cycles are closely tracked and we are now in Solar Cycle 23.

James A. Marusek, a nuclear physicist and engineer, recently wrote about the current cycle and I will excerpt his article. He believes there are two paths ahead and each is marked with a “Danger” signpost. You need to know about them, even if there is nothing that anyone on the planet can do about it.

“It is now evident,” Marusek writes, “that the Grand Maxima state that has persisted during most of the 20th century has come to an abrupt end.” Older solar cycles averaged 797 spotless days, more than twice that of recent ones. They accounted for the cold spells often called little ice ages.

“We are now at a crossroad,” writes Marusek. “Two paths lie before us. Down one path lies monstrous solar storms. Down the other path lies several decades of crushing cold temperatures and global famine.”

Our most current experience with the latter has been the cycle that began around 1998 when the Earth’s average temperatures began to cool. It has been accompanied by glaciers that have begun to grow, increasing ice at the North and South Poles, and snowfall in desert nations that have not seen snow in their recorded history.

If the current solar cycle, devoid of sunspots and closing in on some six hundred days continues, solar scientists have a name for it, a “Dalton Minimum” or a “Maunder Minimum.” It is still too early to say if the Sun will take this route. The alternative is a period of very intense solar storms.

Either way, the result would wreak havoc on the Earth. Fewer sunspots will mean a colder Earth and that means reduced production of the crops we depend upon for food for ourselves and for the livestock that provide part of our diet. The alternative is massive solar storms that produce magnetic field energy that is released in the form of huge magnetic flares.

The effect of such flares could destroy the large extra high voltage power transformers in the United States and other nations. Replacing such transformers would take over a year and each cost in the area of ten million dollars. The National Research Council examined what could occur and concluded that “it would result in large-scale blackouts affecting more than 130 million people (in the U.S.) and expose more than 350 major transformers to the risk of permanent damage.”

Try to imagine an electrical blackout that lasts months, even years.

Too much magnetic activity destroys the electrical system. Too little brings on either a little ice age or triggers the next full scale one. The Earth is at the end of the 10,000 to 11,500 year cycle between ice ages, so the potential for the latter scenario is very real. When it arrives, it will do so very swiftly.

If you are tempted to dismiss either scenario, history has another story to tell. During a particularly brutal winter in 1779-1780, the surface of the Hudson River was solid ice for five weeks. Early settlers traveling west in covered wagons crossed a frozen over Mississippi near present day St. Louis in 1799. In England, the Great Frost of 1683-1684, the River Thames was completely frozen for two months and nearly a foot thick at London.

A nation without electricity with millions of people unable to light, heat or cool their homes or apartments, to use any appliance, to control traffic, to use any communications, to function based on modern technology is almost beyond our imagination.

Thus, while politicians and other charlatans preach “global warming”, talk of green jobs, and refuse to permit energy industries to have access to oil, natural gas, or coal, while planning to tax the emissions from what energy we do use, the Sun has other plans.

Specter Is Gone! Conservatives Are Ecstatic!

Specter Is Gone! Conservatives Are Ecstatic!
J. D. Longstreet

I’ll make this one short and sweet!

If you thought we conservatives would be all “down in the mouth” over losing Specter to the democrats, you are WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!!! We are, instead, delighted! Specter was chief among the “RINOS.” There are so many more the GOP needs to purge.

Of course, a purge of the GOP is not about to happen, at least not intentionally.

I am still up for a third party, “The Conservative Party.” As I remarked on a friend’s blog, earlier today, I am of the opinion we conservatives would have more influence on national politics as a third party than we have now. At least, with our numbers, the GOP, in particular, would have to seek our support to further their goals. As it stands today, the GOP takes us for granted. They only want our votes and nothing else.

In any event, I whispered a prayer of “Thanks” to heaven today for relieving us of at least one millstone around our necks. If we could only get rid of all the Rinos, then, THAT would be a good start!

J. D. Longstreet




J. D. Longstreet

We knew this day would eventually come. And now it is here and we have the wrong person in the Oval Office to deal with it.

The UN is demanding that their rules and regs take precedence over the US Constitution. See, that’s what happens when you sign a democratic nation onto a socialist organization and join the company of a slew of representatives from countries ruled by tin-pot dictators. There is a parable in the Bible that speaks of this sort of thing. It is an old, old expression which, if I can paraphrase here, goes something like this: “A little leaven… leavens the whole lot.” In other words… a little evil in a group makes the entire group evil. Or said, yet, another way, “one evil person in an organization makes the entire organization evil.” In today’s vernacular it means, simply: “ guilt by association.”

We have no love for the UN. In fact we’d like to see it disbanded, the building torn down, and the land it was sitting upon plowed under and sown with salt to prevent anything from growing there.

One of the reasons we pushed so hard for the election of a conservative president in 2008 was because we feared a liberal president would submit the US to UN rule. And what do you know? We got a President who bows to the king of a desert full of sand dunes… and, oh, yeah, oil.

Many conservatives warned of the dangers of the election of a liberal President and pointed out this very possibility… that the election of a liberal President in 2008, was to be avoided unless, of course, the people of America were in favor of the US being run by the UN!

Well, that day has arrived and I have absolutely no reservations in predicting that the current president of the US will fold to the UN like a cheap suit.

So what has brought us to this sorry place in history? Well, a few days ago, the U.N.'s top anti-torture envoy said the U.S. is obligated by a United Nations convention to prosecute Bush administration lawyers who allegedly drafted policies that approved the use of harsh interrogation tactics against terrorism suspects. The “convention” he is speaking of is “The U.N. Convention Against Torture.”

In the spirit of full disclosure, allow me to explain my own stance on the US using torture on terrorists. If torture will get us the information we need to stop an attack on Americans anywhere in the world, and keep American families safe, I have no problem with it. We are dealing with people who would slit the throats of your children and stand over their bodies and laugh!

Alright, here is the crux of the current matter: The UN wants to prosecute those Bush Administration Justice Department officials who wrote memos that defined torture and who assured CIA officials that their use of certain tactics was legal.

I have to ask… is our President going to allow another entity to try US citizens for expressing an opinion? An opinion asked for by their employer, the President of the United States? Oh, yes! There is the implied threat that if the US does not prosecute those lawyers and other experts for giving an opinion they were asked to give by their President, they will be tried by another entity “abroad”, which is simply another way of saying they intend to try US citizens in a court of law in another country for something they did, which the accusers believe was a crime, in THIS country! Now this is where a REAL Commander-in-Chief would begin rattling sabres and mentioning that three letter word… WAR. Yes, this is where Obama should be saying: “Look, you try dragging one of our citizens before a court in any country charged with a crime they committed in the US, if, indeed, it was a crime, then we will use the full might of the US military to stop you, your country, and the UN, if necessary.

And NO, we’re not going to hear that because our socialist president believes in “global governance”… or a one-world government, which sublimates the US constitution to the United Nations.

Exactly what the UN Representative is saying is that the 145 other countries who are co-signers of that particular UN Convention have an obligation to arrest any of those accused, if they are found within their jurisdiction, and return then to the US, under arrest, IF the US guarantees it will try them. If the US does not agree to try them then those 145 countries have an obligation to try the accused themselves. Is that clear enough for you? You can read the entire story HERE.

One can say what one will about the Bush Administration, and Lord knows there was a lot I did not agree with them on, but there is one thing for which I will be forever in their debt, and that is for keeping my family, and my country, safe from any more terrorist attacks after 9-11.

It seems to me that for the current President to allow any sort of condemnation of the men and women who did everything they could to prevent further death and destruction on America’s shores is nothing short of ingratitude to the nth degree. Not to mention the damage it does to “trust” among presidential advisors in the future when asked to give the President a frank and honest opinion on, well, ANY subject. How can advisors EVER trust the President, or the Congress ever again? The honest answer is they cannot.

This matter is a “Pandora’s Box” best left unopened. But an inexperienced President with, unfortunately, a “Messiah” complex has opened it and now it cannot be closed.

As we have noted before in this column, the UN seems ever ready to undermine the only nation keeping them afloat monetarily, rushes in to accuse the US of every kind of evil, because in our opinion the UN is jealous of the superpower status of the US. How utterly ridiculous! How very like the UN!

The UN, as we have said often in this column, is hopelessly broken. It cannot be repaired. The UN is finished. I, for one, bid the UN “goodbye and good riddance”. I would happily stand on the docks of New York Harbor and wave, gleefully, as the ship bearing the entire UN entourage, slips eastward over the horizon. What a wonderful thought.

In the meantime, the US, it seems, must continue to do the UN’s job as they are completely incapable of taking care of themselves… let alone policing the world’s trouble spots.

Many Americans are growing extremely tired of financing that nest of ne’er do wells and we’d like to see it fold up and go away. It is long past time for the US to pull out of the UN and allow the demise of that sad, arrogant, impotent, and disappointing organization.

Christians Must Be The Driving Force In Saving America!

Christians Must Be The Driving Force In Saving America.
By: J. D. Longstreet

If one chooses not to subscribe to a religion (in America) that is perfectly OK. Nowhere is it written that you must belong to one faith, or the other, to be a good citizen, or even just to be a citizen. Nowhere.

At the same time, nowhere is it written that I can’t practice mine.

A not so careful reading of the 1st Amendment will demonstrate, to anyone with an open mind, the framers had nothing to say about the mingling of religion and state. What they did not want to see was the state impose a certain religion, or denomination, on it’s people.

At the time the Constitution was written, some of the northeastern states/colonies had already established state churches. The churches in those states/colonies were a part of that state’s government. If you were a citizen of that state you were a member of that church. One, or two, European countries have the same state/church situation, even today, as the early colonies had in the 1700’s. When you are born, in those countries, you are born into the church. You remain a member until death, or, you go to court and ask a judge to allow you to leave that “state church.”

There is no such thing as separation of church and state in this country. I don’t believe the Constitution even suggests it. Only a myopic, left leaning, court could find that in the Constitution. They think they have. As soon as the conservative court becomes a fact, and not a figment of our imagination, that will be over-turned.

Having said all this, I still favor an amended 1st Amendment to make the practice of those religions that would forsake our constitutional law and replace it with some sort of religious code of laws unacceptable and even illegal in the US. There are obvious reasons for outlawing those religions in this country.

And YES, this country was founded on the tenants of the Judeo-Christian faith. One cannot read any of our state documents, or any of our founding documents, or look at our national buildings, (even the Supreme Court Building) and not be aware of that fact. The individuals and organizations attempting to strip America of her Judeo-Christian Heritage will lose. It will be messy, and tempers are going to flare, but in the end they WILL lose.

On our money the slogan says: “In God We Trust.” Sometimes we have to be reminded of that. On the top of the Washington Monument are engraved, in Latin, the words “Praise Be To God!” My sentiments exactly!

In the past few months we Americans have been reminded just how fragile our form of government really is. By rights it should never have managed to exist as long as it has. But it did. Now, however, with the onslaught of socialism on our government, those of us who subscribe to the Christian faith, and a few others, have come to the realization that there is a war going on just out of sight of the masses of Americans and it is a war for the survival of the United States.

As Christians we can sit back and say to ourselves that due to the separation of church and state, we Christians have no part in this war. That would be, and is, wrong. And this is where the connection between church and stated proves itself. See, if the current representative republic falls, so will our right to practice our faith as we choose. As Americans we must render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s. As Christians we must render unto God the things that are God’s. Confusing the two only creates chaos, division, and could easily lead to the loss of the right to practice our faith openly and if could even lead to the loss of our constitutional freedoms and our liberty.

Forgive me if I cannot see how it is possible for Christians to support a socialist government in America. Yet millions of Christians, at least those that claim the mantle of Christianity, voted for it and even now rabidly support the socialist government of Obama and the Democratic Party in America. The Holy Scriptures of the Christians says as plainly as possible that Christians, anyone for that matter, cannot serve two masters.

It is my opinion, that if America is to survive these dark days of tribulation Christians must join together to save her. It is the ONLY way America will survive.

America Had Better Wake Up!

Wake up America!
by: Pamela Geller

A few days ago, I received the following article/commentary from a friend via e-mail. I was amazed at how it reflected my own feelings about the current times in which we live. I am passing it on to you and I want to be sure the author is recognized... Pamela Geller.

From some light research on Google, I learned the following about Ms. Geller: she began her publishing career at The New York Daily News and subsequently took over operation of The New York Observer as Associate Publisher. She left The Observer after the birth of her fourth child, but remained involved in various projects including American Associates, Ben Gurion University, and being Senior Vice-President Strategic Planning and Performance Evaluation at The Brandeis School. She is a conservative blogger. Her site, Atlas Shrugs 2000, can be accessed HERE.

After 9/11, Ms. Geller had the veil of oblivion violently lifted from her consciousness and she immersed herself in the education and understanding of geopolitics, Islam, terror, foreign affairs and those imminent threats the mainstream media and the government wouldn't cover or discuss.

In any event, Ms. Geller expresses a concern we have had for sometime now, having mentioned it a few times in our scribbling. There is a feeling, just beneath the consciousness level, of many Americans today that something big, something REALLY big, is about to happen. Ms. Geller has captured that feeling in the piece she authored below. We recommend you visit "Atlas Shrugs 2000" often. it is always entertaining, insightful, and informative.

Please continue below for "Wake up America" by Pamela Geller:


I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15 books in six languages, and have studied history all my life. I think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is just a banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes, these exist but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a sharper focus.

Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about 10 - 15 years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.

We demanded and then codified into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to people whom we knew could never pay back? Why? We learned recently that the Federal Reserve, which has little or no real oversight by anyone, has "loaned" two trillion dollars (that is $2,000,000,000,000) over the past few months, but will not tell us to whom or why or disclose the terms. That is our money. Yours and mine. And that is three times the $700B we all argued about so strenuously just this past September.

Who has this money? Why do they have it? Why are the terms unavailable to us? Who asked for it? Who authorized it? I thought this was a government of "We the People," who loaned our powers to our elected leaders. Apparently not.
We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our economy. Why?

We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers are not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity. Why?

We have now established the precedent of protesting every close election (now violently in California over a proposition that is so controversial that it wants marriage to remain between one man and one woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago?). We have corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected judges to write laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a banana republic. To what purpose?

Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall, major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of collapse, Social Security is nearly bankrupt, as is Medicare and our entire government. Our education system is worse than a joke (I teach college and know precisely what I am talking about.) The list is staggering in its length, breadth, and depth. It is potentially 1929 x 10. And we are at war with an enemy we cannot name for fear of offending people of the same religion who cannot wait to slit the throats of your children if they have the opportunity to do so.

And now we have elected a man no one knows anything about, who has never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as Wasilla, Alaska. All of his associations and alliances are with real radicals in their chosen fields of employment, and everything we learn about him, drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary (Surely you have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders? No? Oh, of course. The media would never play that for you over and over and then demand he answer it. Sarah Palin's pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe is more important.)

Mr. Obama's winning platform can be boiled down to one word: Change...radical change. Why?

I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now. This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never, ever done in his professional life. In my assessment, Obama will divide us along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to realign the pieces into a new and different power structure. Change is indeed coming. And when it comes, you will never see the same nation again.

And that is only the beginning.

I thought I would never be able to experience what the ordinary, moral German felt in the mid-1930s. In those times, the savior was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing. What they did know was that he was associated with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great oratory and promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and waved a lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his "brown shirts" would bully them into submission.

And then he was duly elected to office, with a full-throttled economic crisis at hand [the Great Depression]. Slowly but surely he seized the controls of government power, department by department, person by person, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The kids joined a Youth Movement in his name, where they were taught what to think. How did he get the people on his side? He did it promising jobs to the jobless, money to the moneyless, and goodies for the military-industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe, and across the world.

He did it with a compliant media - Did you know that? And he did this all in the name of justice and...change. And the people surely got what they voted for. (Look it up if you think I am exaggerating.) Read your history books. Many people objected in 1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and made fun of. When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though.

Don't forget that Germany was the most educated, cultured country in Europe. It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And in less than six years - a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency - it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors. All with the best of intentions, of course. The road to Hell is paved with them.

As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I have a choice: I can either believe what the objective pieces of evidence tell me (even if they make me cringe with disgust); I can believe what history is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven decades; or I can hope I am wrong, close my eyes, have another latte and ignore what is transpiring around me.
Some people scoff at me; others laugh or think I am foolish, naive, or both. Perhaps I am. But I have never been afraid to look people in the eye and tell them exactly what I believe - and why I believe it. I pray I am wrong. But, I do not think I am.

The Law of the Sea Treaty Is Back With A Friend In The White House!

The Law of the Sea Treaty Is Back With A Friend In The White House!
J. D. Longstreet


The Leftists of the world have been encouraging the United States to sign the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST), which was rightly vetoed by President Reagan decades ago and rejected by American Presidents, both Democrat and Republican, ever since. Now, with Obama a socialist/liberal/democrat in the Oval Office the treaty, most assuredly, has a friend in the White House.

It ought to scare the living daylights out of you! Why? Stay with us for abit and we will make an effort to enlighten you.

So why is it important? OK, lets look at some reasons why the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) is important to you as an American and to all inhabitants of the earth:

The first thing we need to do is look at some of the reasons why the people of America lose if this treaty is passed and the US has signed on to it..

By asserting UN authority over seven-tenths of the Earth’s surface, LOST would be the largest territorial conquest in history.

In principle, the treaty would assert UN jurisdiction over U.S. territorial waters, and eventually over waterways within our country.

It would create a huge bureaucratic entity called the “Enterprise” which would regulate and tax all commercial uses of the high seas.

By taxing all efforts to develop the wealth of the seabed, the UN would be given a huge revenue stream, independent of national governments, to push its agenda for international socialism.

The treaty would require the redistribution of cutting-edge technology from the U.S. to all governments in the “developing world,” including extremely repressive governments.

Get the picture??? It’s that cussed “One World Government, or Global Governance our current President is so fond of. You know… it is the “GLOBALISTS” at work.
So, where do we stand today on LOST? Not good, I’m afraid.

The last time this treaty came before the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations they passed it by a vote of 17-4! If the committee approves it again it will go before the entire Senate for ratification. Honestly, it is not looking good for those of us who want a stake driven through the heart of this treaty.

The National Center for Public Policy Research has a website providing educational resources on the Law of the Sea Treaty (also known by the acronyms LOST and UNCLOS). We urge you to click on it and take a look for yourself.

National Center Vice President David Ridenour has said: "The Law of the Sea Treaty is a terrible deal for the U.S. It would threaten our sovereignty, place a significant portion of the world's resources under the control of a U.N.-style body, and complicate our efforts to apprehend terrorists on the high seas by subjecting our actions to review by an international court unlikely to render decisions favorable to the U.S."

Ridenour went on to say: “"The Law of the Sea Treaty would help radical environmentalists achieve what they haven't been able to achieve through legislation. Greenpeace has said 'the benefits of the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea are substantial, including its basic duties for states to protect and preserve the marine environment and to conserve marine living species.' The Natural Resources Defense Council challenged the Navy's use of 'intense active sonar,' arguing that it violates the treaty by posing a danger to marine life. The Navy ultimately agreed to scale back use of this technology. The Law of the Sea Treaty has also been used by Australia and New Zealand in an attempt to shut down an experimental blue fin tuna fishing program and by Ireland in an attempt to shut down a plant on land in England."

The website, the United National Law of the Sea Treaty Information Center, contains a collection of research papers, commentaries and blog entries about LOST from a variety of think-tanks, scholars, opinion writers and bloggers. It can be accessed HERE.

"Although the Law of the Sea Treaty has been around for decades -- the National Center for Public Policy Research first worked on it in 1982 -- relatively few people know much about it," said Amy Ridenour, president of the National Center for Public Policy Research. "The United Nations Law of the Sea Treaty Information Center website is designed to help correct this."

It is more important than ever before to contact your Senators and urge them to oppose the Law of the Sea Treaty.

If you are still not satisfied with your level of knowledge concerning “LOST” then we recommend you go HERE and read the article entitled: “Sink the Law of the Sea Treaty!” by William Norman Grigg.

Look, this is serious stuff. And we are not hearing about it in the MSM. A good question is… WHY?

We urge you to educate yourself and do so quickly. First, however, get on the phone, or send an e-mail or a fax to the offices of your US Senators and ask them to vote no on the Law of the Sea Treaty.

Every so often, we get a chance to use our constitutional rights for good. This is one of those times.

For more information on this proposed treaty we urge you to go HERE.

Neo-Pagans Rule! America Creates God In Her Own Image!

Neo-Pagans Rule! America Creates God In Her Own Image!
By: J. D. Longstreet


As socialism wraps it’s cold, icy, fingers around freedom’s throat in America many Americans have slowly come to the realization that the socialist takeover of America did not happen overnight. There were plenty of warning signs over the past few decades. As I think back, the most obvious of the “warning signs” was/is the so-called “Green Movement.”

Those who follow the Green Movement, the acolytes of the Global Warming “religion,” are easily identified by their unbridled compulsion to bow down to the false idols of science, to socialist politics, and, let us not forget… M O N E Y! You find them everywhere these days. Turn on a TV and there they are straining to burden you with a guilt trip about the damage YOU have done to the planet and how YOU must atone for your wickedness in order to be redeemed from your sins against the “Earth Mother.”

Go to church, and there they are, often in the pulpits, railing about YOUR sins NOT against God, but your sins against the Earth, the climate, the Polar bears, etc, etc.

In America’s schools YOUR children are being indoctrinated in the world’s newest religion and they are instructed to act as missionaries taking the message of the new salvation back home to their parents and family and friends and neighbors. They are made to sit through propaganda movies by Nobel Prize winners which scare the living daylights out of them and help mold those malleable mental crucibles into warriors of the LEFT armed with lies, deceit, and more propaganda.

Spreading the Green Gospel ain’t easy. If the Greenies get them at birth, and all the way through 16 to 20 years in our public education system, they are lost. The Green cult has got them… unless there is an “Intervention.”

Our politicians sold out, longs ago, to the greenies. They preach energy independence and then refuse to allow America to become energy independent by using the oil and coal we have right here beneath American soil or under American waters or in the rocks that litter some of America’s landscape. And now we have a President absolutely committed to the green religion. The man can be forgiven some of his folly for if you dig a little past his carefully crafted veneer you will find him not as intelligent as you have been led to believe.

Back to the new OLD religion. (That was not a mis-print, or an editorial screw-up.) See, that’s what this new Green religion is… O L D! It is out and out paganism. The first time I heard a minister preaching on the merits of environmentalism from the pulpit, I nearly burst out laughing! The man was obviously educated beyond his abilities! There was a man, supposedly a man of God, speaking from a sacred spot in a building set aside for the worship of God, endorsing paganism which, itself, is the world’s OLDEST religion! I ask you, how is it possible for any reasonably educated individual NOT to recognize the Green Movement for what it is… pure Paganism, the worship of Gaia, the “earth mother, or “Mother Earth”.

Many believe that paganism died after Constantine in the third century. Not so! It DID recede but the practice of paganism continued in the jungles of Africa and right here in what we now call America, and even in Europe where the practice went, for all intents and purposes, underground. Paganism has survived into the 21st century. Not much about it has changed except the name by which it is known today…. environmentalism. It is the worship of the earth. It is the deification of the planet and raising it up above that which Christians and Jews refer to as God, Jehovah, and Yahweh. It is, for Christians and Jews, a violation of the First Commandment: “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”

Today, as I scribble this little tome onto the electronic paper in front of me, it is “Earth Day.” It is a day set aside for the pagan worship of the earth, or Gaia. I sincerely hope you did not take part in any of the ridiculous ceremonies planned for Earth Day.

Even now, as I write this, I envision modern day Americans bowing down to trees and rocks and rivers and oceans paying homage to Gaia the “earth mother”. How utterly disgusting it is to see grown men and women make complete fools of themselves in pagan worship services on this day. What makes it truly disturbing is that these same men and women who, on this Wednesday, bow down to the idols of a false god, a pagan god, Gaia, will rush to church or temple or synagogue on Saturday, or Sunday, and keep a straight face while they go through the motions of worshiping the creator of all this is, seen and unseen.

Yes, the pagans are back from the fringes of society and the shadows of civilization to take advantage of mankind’s deep yearning for something to worship that he, or she, can see and hold and touch and pay tribute to in order to, somehow, redeem himself/herself from whatever his/her, darkest fears happen to be. They call it environmentalism, but those of us who recognize it for what it is call it by its real name… paganism.

It is important to understand the link between paganism and socialism. Here in America we now have a socialist government, as does much of the rest of the world. Here’s the link…socialism is the incubator and the nursery for paganism.

You see, America is now in it’s “Post-Christian Era.” We are no longer a Christian nation. America, today, is, at best, a Socialist/Pagan nation. There is a price America must pay for her failure to live into her promise, to live up to her role as the leader of the world. Make no mistake, America forsook her leadership role and joined the mob. If you have been surprised at the rapidity with which America has crumbled, then you have not been paying attention. Stand-by, for the worst is yet to come. We are only at the cusp of the troubles and tribulations this nation must yet suffer.

Already, today, I chafe under the yoke of socialism. The knowledge that the burden is only going to grow heavier makes the chafing even worse. Watching America desperately seeking redemption through the pagan worship of the earth, this oldest of old religions, it occurred to me that, at least here in America, we have finally succeeded in creating God in our own image… and it is an abomination!

“Clean Energy” is a Dirty Lie ... by Alan Caruba

“Clean Energy” is a Dirty Lie
By Alan Caruba

What does it take to be a dedicated environmentalist—a Green—these days?

“The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.” An example would be a belief in “global warming” despite the fact that the planet has been cooling for a decade.

“To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed.” This describes anyone who says that carbon dioxide, CO2, is responsible for a warming that is not occurring or that this gas could cause it.

“To deny objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies.” This is how Congress can restrict access to national energy sources—oil, natural gas, and coal—while claiming it wants the USA to be “energy independent.”

The definition above comes from George Orwell’s “1984” and describes “double think” in his allegory of Communism.

President Obama’s environmental beliefs and policies are a composite of outright lies and high on the list is his promise of “Green jobs.” This is based on his intention to radically transform our society from one in which energy jobs in areas such as oil production and mining are replaced by those providing wind and solar energy.

The auto industry is getting a makeover as General Motors brands that sell well are forced by government fiat to be abandoned for those few that people want or can afford.

Regarding so-called Green jobs, Thomas J. Pyle, president of the Institute for Energy Research, recently pointed out that a study in Spain that was released in late March made clear that, “Spain has spent billions in taxpayer resources to subsidize renewable energy programs in an effort to jumpstart its ailing economy and what they have gotten in return are fewer jobs, skyrocketing debt and some of the highest and most regressive energy prices in the developed world.”

The lies Greens are telling, whether in Spain are here in the USA, always produce the same results. For every “Green job” created by the Spanish government over the past decade, 2.2 other jobs were destroyed as a result. To not expect the same result here is to be willfully ignorant.

All the talk of “clean energy”, wind and solar, is now shifting into high gear with the introduction of the Waxman-Markey legislation on March 31. It is touted as “a new direction for America’s clean energy future and fighting global warming.” At the risk of being repetitive, there is NO global warming. The Earth is now ten years into a cooling cycle.

This is possibly the most dreadful piece of legislation to be put before Congress in the history of the nation. It is the deliberate reordering of American society because without adequate energy, the economy will implode and the lifestyles that Americans take for granted, all based on affordable electricity and fuel for transportation will cease to exist.

It is based entirely on the “global warming” lie. It is based entirely on the lie that carbon dioxide (CO2) is the driving force behind “climate change.”

Clean jobs are just one more of the endless lies that Greens tell in order to put an end to America’s capacity to compete in the global marketplace.

Clean energy is the term applied to wind and solar energy, deemed “renewable”, amidst more lies about the oil and coal which most surely will neither be renewable nor even available if Congress and the White House continue to put the national lands under which they exist off limits to all exploration and extraction.

Totally supported by government subsidies and mandates for their use, wind and solar energy represents barely one percent of the electricity Americans use every day.

In countless ways, the Greens are working to destroy America’s ability to have the energy it needs to survive and grow. Our economy, already suffering from government mandates that destroyed the nation’s housing market, will utterly collapse when it can no longer access the energy required for the future.

Clean energy is a dirty lie.

Barry and Hugo! What a Pair!

Barry And Hugo! What A Pair!
J. D. Longstreet

I nearly threw up when I opened my Sunday morning paper and saw, on the very front page, an A.P. photo of US President Obama shaking hands with Hugo Chavez, President of Venezuela. The first thought that entered my mind was: ”Hey, those two are interchangeable!”

Yeah, I know! It was all at the laughable “Summit of the Americas” confab down in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad.

The article accompanying the photo pointed out that Mr. Obama was listening to complaints and reaching out to another leftist, like himself, Chavez, all the while listening to the constant flow of complaints about US meddling in the hemisphere.

Of course, I wasn’t there. But I suspect it would be safe to bet that Obama apologized, some more, on behalf of America and for that of which we are being accused.

I don’t know about you, but, I must tell you, I am fed up with the veritable flood of apologies from the left about what my country did, didn’t do, or whatever they think we did or didn’t do. I have had it up to the gunwales!

It is humiliating for the so-called “leader” of this nation to go “bowing and scraping” to a bunch of tin pot dictators from third-rate banana republics who pound their chests and cry: “Hey, look at me, I’m SOMEBODY!” It is a pitiable person who finds it necessary to call attention to himself in order to be recognized. We are talking huge inferiority complexes!

And another thing: For the leader of the planet’s preeminent country to bow to king of some desert, sandbox, kingdom is embarrassing, humiliating, distasteful, and disrespectful of the people of this country who put him in office! You would think he would KNOW that. Presidents of the United States of America do not, I repeat, do not, bow to the leader of another country… ever!

It is just another signal of what the liberal/socialists of America think of the USA. Not much! THEY may think we are just another country. But we are not! They cannot find it in themselves to understand that this country IS special! This country is unlike any country, ever, in the history of the world. Yet, they cannot admit that.

Those apologies? My Lord, when will they stop? Apologizing is a sign of weakness for a country. There must be a stop this dreadful behavior by the President of the United States!

Maybe the American people, who feel as I do, should demand that the president take along a printed list of our names (when he visits other countries) to present to the representative of that country alerting them that those of us represented by our names on the list DO NOT APOLOGIZE! Then Mr. Obama can go ahead and make a fool of himself if he so chooses. At least, you and I will not have demeaned our ancestry, our country or ourselves! See, we do not feel so humbled in the presence of “so-called” royalty that we feel we MUST bow and scrape! I mean, many of our ancestors either left the old country, or were kicked out of the old country, for that very reason! They would not kiss a royal a**! I can’t speak for your ancestors, but history teaches that mine were constantly in trouble with the royal families of every country they happened to land in… until they arrived here in 1789.

No, I do not feel a need to apologize to Europe, to South America, to Africa, to Asia, or those “so-called” Palestinians, or any other country, or peoples. I must tell you, I think it is a character flaw to feel one must bow to another man or woman regardless of that person’s station in life. My parents taught me that I am as good as any other human being on this planet and… I believe it! You may make of that whatever you choose. It makes no difference to me.

How many times in the past few weeks has the MsM dutifully reported every apology Mr. Obama has made? LOTS! Maybe it’s a little thing with you, dear reader, but I wanted to grab the TV and shake it, with all the gusto I could muster, and exclaim: “NOT ME! I DON’T APOLOGIZE!”

So, I think we have a duty, as “unapologetic Americans” to tell Mr. Obama that he is making a fool of himself for apologizing for you and me, the “UNAPOLOGETIC”, and he is misleading the world into thinking ALL Americans are covered by Mr. Obama’s apology. Believe me folks, those of you in lands other than America, the President may THINK he is apologizing for us, but take it from one of the “Great Unwashed” here in America… he most certainly is NOT!

A State Named Palestine Will Bring No Peace to the Middle East!

A State Named Palestine Will Bring No Peace To The Middle East!
J. D. Longstreet


The Obama Administration is hell-bent on a “Two-State” answer to the Israeli/”so-called” Palestinian conflict. So was the Bush Administration. Bush was wrong and so is Mr. Obama.

Israel’s new Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of the Likud Party, has been a hardliner in the past on the question of a Palestinian state. We urge him to hold to that position.

Netanyahu’s foreign minister is Avigdon Lieberman. Lieberman leads the Yisrael Beitenu Party. It is said to be, by the MsM, a “far-right” party. He, too, is against any establishment of a Palestinian state. Lieberman wants to expel all “ethnic” Arabs, which means, simply, the “so-called” Palestinians, already living in the state of Israel, FROM Israel!

Hopefully, these two men can save Israel by refusing to even discuss the possibility of a Palestinian state next door to Israel.

As we observe the Middle East today, it has come down to the world versus Israel. But, then again, hasn’t it always been? Well, it sure seems like it!

It is impossible for the UN, for Europe, or for the US, to understand having to withstand almost daily attacks, of some kind, somewhere, in Israel by the Islamic terrorists who go by many names, such as Hamas.

Now many of the world’s governments are demanding that Israel recognize and accept Hamas because the “so-called” Palestinians elected Hamas to run what passes for a government in the piece of land they happen to be squatting upon today. Much of the world says Israel has no choice, but, to accept Hamas.

Maybe not.

George Mitchell, Obama’s man in the Middle East, says a “Two-State” Policy is the only answer to the conflict. Mr. Mitchell is wrong. Mitchell has made three trips to the Middle East in the few weeks Obama has been President of the US. Obama is desperately seeking a solution that will bring peace to the region. Actually, what they really mean when they say “Peace in the Region” is peace between Israel and the “so-called” Palestinians. Again, we hold the opinion that Mr. Mitchell, Mr. Obama, Mr. Bush, Mrs. Clinton, and Ms. Rice are ALL wrong!

On his most recent trip to the Middle East, Mr. Mitchell spent three days in talks with the Israeli leaders and the “so-called” Palestinian leaders. It is reported that Mitchell said the conflict had gone on too long and the people of that region should not have to wait any longer for a “just” peace that would guarantee security for all of them. That is a wonderful sentiment… but not much else.

Maybe I should explain my frequent use of the term “so-called” Palestinians. See, there have never been a people known as Palestinians. Never. Look it up. You may find that you are surprised by what you learn.

Now, I tend to associate much of what is happening in that region today as being directly connected to bible prophecy. (I can hear the gasps!) Permit me to explain.

I don’t consider myself a “Bible-Thumper” but I do have a background in the evangelical, fundamentalist, Christian religion. One simply cannot be born, and reared, in the Southern part of the United States, without having a passing acquaintance with Protestant fundamentalism. It is impossible to do. In I adulthood, switched to a mainstream protestant faith and associated myself with the Evangelical Lutherans. The point is that during my formative years I was a sponge soaking up all the preaching, and teaching, and just plain “talking” from the adults about Israel and it’s place in history, in our faith, and in the world.

As I grew older, and “the news” became my business, my profession, if you please, I could not avoid noticing so much of what happened in the Middle East came as no surprise to me … but it certainly did to my colleagues in the broadcasting and news business. See, I had being paying attention, as a lad, and now all those pieces of “the puzzle,” that is the Middle East, began falling into place. Here I will date myself by confessing that I had been around for quite some time BEFORE the modern state of Israel was founded. It was hailed, at the time, as the beginning of the end. That is to say… the beginning of the “end-times.” Such an event was, and is, met with great joy by many Christians, especially those with whom I was reared.

So based on what I know, from what I learned as a youngster, and in early adulthood, from the scriptures themselves and from my preachers, teachers, and parents about Israel and her place in the world, I offer you my answer to the Israeli/”So-called” Palestinian question.

There is no answer.

At least, humankind does not have it. People of faith will know exactly what I am saying. You see, the answer is in the hands of Providence, or God, if you choose. All the wheeling and dealing and pleading and begging will bring no peace between those two people who sprang from two half-brothers with the same father and different mothers. I know, I know. I’m getting dangerously close to buttoning on my clerical collar here, and I don’t intend to do so.

Hopefully this piece will give you some insight into why so many Americans find it pure folly for diplomats to run themselves ragged trying to bring peace to that region. They know there will be no peace until the Almighty, Himself, deigns it is time. When that time arrives, believe me when I tell you… you will know it… and you will not need the Mainstream Media to tell you about it!

Until that day, count me among those who count it folly for Mr. Obama, Mr. Mitchell, and Mrs. Clinton to run to and fro on the earth seeking peace for the children of Abraham.

Today is Patriots' Day! ... by J. D. Longstreet

Today is Patriots’ Day!
By: J. D. Longstreet


I’ll bet that you did not know that today is Patriots Day! Well, it IS! It is a real, live, CIVIC holiday set aside to honor, specifically, the minutemen who stood against the British at Lexington and Concord. These were the very first battles that kicked off the Revolutionary War in America, which led directly to our independence from Great Britain.

Here is a bit more from Wikipedia on Patriots’ Day:

Patriots' Day (sometimes incorrectly spelled Patriot's Day or Patriots Day) is a
civic holiday commemorating the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the first battles of the American Revolutionary War. It is observed in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts[1] and state of Maine[2] (once part of Massachusetts), and is a public school observance day in Wisconsin[3]. Observances and re-enactments of these first battles of the American Revolution occur annually at Lexington Green in Lexington, Massachusetts, (around 6am) and The Old North Bridge in Concord, Massachusetts (around 9am). In the morning, a mounted reenactor with State Police escort retraces Paul Revere's ride, calling out warnings the whole way.

You can learn more about Patriots’ Day

So, now that you know today is Patriots’ Day, how will you celebrate it? Good question, huh? We suggest you display the US flag outside your home or business today. We certainly hope you attended worship services at your church of choice today and gave thanks to God for the men and women who wrenched our freedom from the bonds of a monarch and for all those since who have worn the uniform of our nation’s armed services and sacrificed themselves in order to preserve that freedom so preciously paid for in blood.

At a time in our nation’s history when we stand at the brink of losing that hard won freedom, closer than we have ever been, in my opinion, we need to step back a bit and take a closer look at what we are about to lose. It is good to remind ourselves, and our government, that America is unique in the entire world. Our government is founded on a constitution, the foundation of all the law(s) of the land. Unfortunately, it becomes necessary to remind those who would govern this land that it is not they who have the final say in government, it is the constitution.

Just this week crowds, estimated at one million strong, took to the streets and gathered at their county courthouses, all across the country, in what were referred to as “Tea Parties” to protest our current government’s attempts to take away the rights won for us by the patriots of this blessed land.

There is an organization, called the “Oath Keepers” we heard about just this week. “Oath Keepers” is an association of law enforcement and military personal so dedicated to the Constitution that they have published a list of ten orders they will NOT obey. They will reaffirm the
Oath to the Constitution today. (As a veteran, I swore the same oath.) Here is that oath:

I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

We suggest you visit the website of the “Oath Keepers”. You will find them

Here is the list of ten orders the Oath Keepers say they will NOT obey:

1. We will NOT obey orders to disarm the American people.

2. We will NOT obey orders to conduct warrantless searches of the American people.

3. We will NOT obey orders to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to military tribunal.

4. We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state.

5. We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty.

6. We will NOT obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps.

7. We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext.

8. We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or to “maintain control.”

9. We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies.

10.We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.

(Read the full declaration


The Oath Keepers, on their site, go on to say the following:

“Oath Keepers is an association of currently serving military, veterans, and peace officers who will fulfill the oath we swore to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God.

Our oath is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and we will not obey unconstitutional (and thus illegal) and immoral orders, such as orders to disarm the American people or to place them under martial law and deprive them of their ancient right to jury trial.

We Oath Keepers have drawn a line in the sand. We will not “just follow orders."

Our motto is “Not on our watch!”

Our nation is split apart this Patriots’ Day, much as it was in the years, months, and even days leading up to the confrontation between that scraggly bunch of “fringe” extremists who met the British Army at Lexington and Concord. Historians tell us that roughly one-third of the colonist wanted independence, while one-third of the colonists did NOT want independence, and one-third of the colonists couldn’t have cared less… one way or the other. The big difference today is the percentage of those who couldn’t care less is much smaller. We are closer to a 50-50 split today over the preservation of the liberty and freedom those patriots won for us.

This very day in America we tread dangerous ground. When Americans feel it necessary to form organizations such as the “Oath-Keepers” it tells us there is a deep concern among the people of the country for American’s freedom. It tells us there is a perception among Americans that their country is in peril. And, say what you will about us crazy Americans, when our constitution, and/or our liberty is in harm’s way we get our hackles up. They’re up now.

When one million normally quiet, reserved, conservative Americans take to the streets to protest government actions, taxes, and the direction the current Congress and Presidential Administration are taking America, THAT is a signal that something is desperately wrong in America.

When the Inmates are in Charge. ... by Alan Caruba

When the Inmates are in Charge
By Alan Caruba


If you ever wondered what it would be like if seriously deranged people were close to the seat of power in America, you can stop wondering.

In January, the Competitive Enterprise Institute issued a three-page memorandum. William Yeatman, the author of the memorandum, had serious concerns about the nomination of Dr. John P. Holdren to be the White House Science Adviser.

This position heads the Office of Science and Technology Policy which, in official lingo, “serves as a source of scientific and technological analysis and judgment for the President with respect to major policies, plans and programs of the Federal Government.”

“John Holdren’s 40-year record of outlandish scientific assertions, consistently wrong predictions, and dangerous public policy choices make him unfit to serve as White House Science Adviser,” warned Yeatman.

Just how crazy is Holdren? On April 8, according to the Associated Press, Holdren said that “global warming is so dire, the Obama administration is discussing radical technologies to cool Earth’s air.” Holdren suggested that one option includes “shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays.”

The last time anything of this nature was discussed, it was called “a nuclear winter” in which the debris from a nuclear war would fill the atmosphere and keep the Sun’s warming and nourishing rays from getting through.

According to Holdren, “It’s got to be looked at. We don’t have the luxury of taking any approach off the table.” Holdren believes that the Earth is in the grip of global warming, but the difference between belief and science is that the latter demands proof. Take, for example, the data our weather satellites have been sending back since 1998 all of which points to a cooling Earth.

Twice during the interview, Holdren compared global warming to being “in a car with bad brakes driving toward a cliff in a fog.” The truth, however, is that Holdren is a genuine cuckoo who probably checks under the bed every night to make sure the bogyman isn’t there.

Yeatman described him more charitably as a “chronic alarmist”, citing just a few of his paranoid fantasies. In 1971, Holdren predicted that “some form of ecocatastrophe, if not thermonuclear war, seems almost certain to overtake us before the end of the century.” We are now safely into a new century and the only catastrophe is the Obama administration.

The really neat thing about making catastrophic predictions is that they always take place way into a future. In 1986, Holdren was predicting that global warming would cause the deaths of one billion people by 2020. This is eight years beyond 2012 when devotees of the ancient Mayan calendar predict the end of the world will occur. Neither are likely to occur.

In 1998 Holdren warned that we just can’t go on using energy fuels like oil, natural gas, and coal that represent nearly one hundred percent of everything we and everyone else uses now and will into the future. These days we hear President Obama blathering away about “clean energy”, but there is reality and there is the increasingly weird world of the White House.

In a recent article, Robert Bryce, one of the nation’s leading authorities on energy, pointed out that “Oil now provides nearly 40 percent of America’s total primary energy use. It also provides nearly all of the energy needed for the transportation sector. Coal and natural gas together provide about 50 percent of America’s primary needs.”

That leaves “clean energy”, solar and wind power, “but together,” Bryce notes, “these sources currently provide about 0.16 percent of Americans total needs.” It should also be pointed out that solar, wind, and ethanol production would not exist were it not for huge government subsidies and mandates for their use.

Both President Obama and Holdren think “clean energy” should receive billions of dollars while the White House does everything in its power to destroy the nation’s oil and coal industries.

The Interior Secretary, Ken Salazar, recently said that windmills off the East Coast “could generate one million megawatts of power, roughly the equivalent of 3,000 medium coal-fired power plants, or nearly five times the number of coal plants now in the United States.”

The reality, however, is that there aren’t 3,000 coal fired plants operating. There isn’t even half that number. The Institute for Energy Research estimates that, to achieve Salazar’s insane goal, there would have to be 309,587 giant 3.15 megawatt wind turbines spread over 1,800 miles of coastline or about 172 turbines per mile of coastline. And, of course, the wind would have to blow 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Are these people crazy? You bet! Are the inmates in charge of the asylum? Yes, indeed.

They aren’t the only ones. The American Meteorological Society and several other otherwise respected science groups have completely lost their wits. The AMS wants to explore “geoengineering’s potential to understand its limits and to avoid rash deployment.”

Geoengineering? Remember that Star Trek movie that featured the “Genesis” machine that could convert a dead planet into one with grass and trees, rivers and oceans? When the AMS starts talking about geoengineering, it is strictly into cloud cuckoo land.

Absolutely nothing humans can or should do to mess with the unimaginably huge forces that determine the Earth’s atmosphere should even be contemplated. It is insane! It’s beyond science fiction. It is global genocide. Holdren has been urging “population control measures” since the 1960s.

In 1969, Holdren wrote that it was necessary “to convince society and its leaders that there is no alternative but the cessation of our irresponsible, all-demanding, and all-consuming population growth.” This is another way of saying that there are too many people sharing the planet with Holdren and he has been thinking about that “problem” for a very long time.

So have others in the Obama White House and, in terms of energy use, their “solution” is to make energy so expensive that people will stop driving, starting using mass transit, or just telecommute without going anywhere ever again. Forget about air conditioning and other aspects of modern life.

They intend to achieve this by scaring everyone with global warming talk and by claiming carbon dioxide is a “pollutant”. Then they intend to have the Environmental Protection Agency regulate it. Then they will tax it in the form of cap-and-trade “carbon credits” that must be purchased by all forms of industry and business in America. The costs will be passed along to consumers.

Billions would flow to a government that already is spending trillions in a mad scheme to fix the financial crisis.

What ever happened to just doing nothing? Sometimes when there is no problem, doing nothing is the most brilliant answer. There is no global warming. And, left alone, the financial crisis would correct itself in time. Everything the government is currently doing was tried in the 1930s and it just prolonged the Depression and made it worse!

In the meantime, loonies like Dr. John Holdren will be whispering into Obama’s ear about “shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun’s rays.”
