To listen to the Democrats, you’d think that they have a means to change the climate, both here in the U.S. and around the world, whether it needs change or not. (Might they not be carrying Obama’s slogan of “Hope and Change” a little to far?). In fact , they spent all night just recently in Congress bloviating about how “man” has caused the non-existent phenomenon of “global warming” (a/k/a climate change). According to them 98% of “all” scientists have determined that it is man who caused this global warming that is threatening nobody. Where they got that number (98%) is a mystery? It looks as if one of their colleagues bent over and they pulled that figure out of his/her butt.
No mention was made on the floor of Congress regarding the 2007 report of the Global Warming Project (a/k/a the Oregon Petition), urging politicians to reject any policies based on concerns over global warming. The petition had over 31,000 signatories of scientists with over 9,000 of that number being PhD.’s. So to refute those learned Congressmen, and acolytes of Al Gore, you could come to the conclusion that there is no “settled science” regarding man-made global warming.
The claim by most “global warming” advocates, is that excessive amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere causes “global warming”. A closer look at carbon dioxide is that instead of being a “pollutant”, it is actually plant and tree food. That’s right, plant and tree food. We all learned in elementary school that we humans breathe out carbon dioxide and the plants and trees breathe it in as food, and then convert that to oxygen which we humans breathe in for sustenance. Could it be that this “evil” gas, which is inundating our planet is actually producing plants and trees that are getting bigger and stronger, and as a result are sending out more (Co2) oxygen in the atmosphere? So, instead of being a detriment to our society, it is actually a major benefit to our society.
But you might ask, who am I to rebuff the acolytes of Al Gore (and Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama I might add) and the Democrats in Congress, who seem to know everything there is to know about “global warming”? But then again, don’t just take my word for it, ask the following experts: Dr. Timothy Ball, environmental consultant and former professor of meteorology at the Univ. Of Winnipeg; Dr. Richard Lindzen, meteorologist and Alfred P. Sloan professor of meteorology and climatology at M.I.T; and John Coleman, meteorologist and founder of the “Weather Channel”, who has called man-made global warming “the biggest scientific scam in history”. They are all “global warming” deniers.
So, the answer to the headline of this piece is “NO”, you can’t change “Mother Nature”, no matter how hard you try. It is beyond the mortal human being to change something which he has no control of - no matter what the omniscient Democrats say are the facts. My advice to them is to go back to the library and brush up on their ignorance.

Principled Members of Congress:
Where the Hell are you?
Am I the only one in America who is totally outraged at this President-Gone-Wild who is giving away our possessions and assets, none of which belong to him and none of which he has any right to be giving away - particularly to our arch enemies that have sworn to kill us? This is sheer lunacy!
Alaskan islands, control of the internet, military hardware, national security secrets? It is obvious that Obama intends to bring the USA to its knees by opening wide, the doors to all our secrets and tangible assets - come one, come all - no charge. We're all wrong; the thug nations of the world are all right. How senseless can it get?
Isn't there one man among you in the Congress of the United States, who will stand up and scream about this awful, unconscionable behavior by this nation's traitorous president?
No candidate for the Congress in the upcoming mid-term election should be considered by the voters, if he or she hasn't taken action or at least, taken a strong stand against Obama's ruinous give-away policies.
It takes real courage to take a stand in opposition to a sitting president, even a lame duck president but, how can any candidate in good conscious, fail to do so on this critical issue at this critical time?

Arab League vows to never recognize Israel as a Jewish state.
Well, la-de-da. Who gives a damn? As if anyone could believe that such recognition even if it were declared, was anything but a political ploy to gain advantage in a sham negotiation - with never any intention of actually recognizing Israel's right to exist. Look up the Islamist term, 'taqiyya'.
More to the point, Israel should declare that the true descendants of pigs and apes, meaning the blood-thirsty maniacs of the Islamic Arab states in the Middle East, should never be recognized as belonging to the civilized human race. And further, that they should be driven back into the barren deserts of the Arabian peninsula to roam for the next millennium with only their smelly camels, scorpions and their own lunacy for company.
One cannot deal rationally with irrational people. And, there are no more irrational people than the radical followers of Islam. To expect anything other than the deceit and violent behavior that Israel's neighbors have displayed since Israel became a sovereign state in 1948, is to fool oneself into unrealistic expectations. The thousands upon thousands of rockets and missiles lobbed into Israel by the Taliban, Hamas and the other 'peace-loving peoples of Islam', attest to their sincere desire to get along like good neighbors. Wishful thinking that this mentality will change, is suicidal.

Some people have accused President Obama of being “all talk and no action”. Is that a fair observation of how he operates? As Alfred E. Smith, former Governor of N.Y. and Democratic presidential candidate in 1928 once said, “Let’s look at the record”.
When Obama took office, the world was in a precarious state of turmoil, with wars in Iraq and Afghanistan going on, a smoldering conflict continuing between Israel and the Palestinians, and the reemergence of saber rattling by the Russians and North Korea. The words that Obama spouted during the campaign was one of awareness and a promise of the U.S. defending the rights of oppressed people. It all sounded good as he was even more “conservative” than his opponent, John McCain on many issues.
Well, that was then, but what has happened since he took office? The first thing he did was to embark on an “apology tour” around the world with major apologies to the Muslim world for “sins” that he conjured up in his own mind that the U.S committed in the past. From then on, it seems that it has been downhill ever since. The war in Iraq wound down with our troops being withdrawn completely without an agreement with the Iraqi government to maintain a stabilizing force to help avoid a chaotic situation. But, as was predicted by many knowledgeable retired military personnel, the situation in Iraq has deteriorated into secular conflict and violence with hints that the Iraqi government has been playing “footsie” with Iran, which is something we especially don’t need right now. Afghanistan is following along the same path as Obama has failed to negotiate a strategic withdrawal with some U.S. military left to help the Afghani government make an orderly transition to self rule.
The bluster Obama showed in in overthrowing Khadafy in Libya, was over shadowed by the disaster in Benghazi. False statements by both Obama and his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton and other administration officials like Susan Rice, added to the chaos.
Also, the initial backing of Mohamed Morsi in Egypt has backfired as Morsi has been overthrown by the Egyptian military and the Muslim Brotherhood opposition.
The biggest bluff and bluster that has come back to bite Obama in the Middle East was his “red line” pronouncement on Syria and its use of chemical weapons against its population. Obama warned Bashar al-Assad that there would be consequences if he used them - well, he did and Obama backed down making Obama look like a paper tiger, again.
As chaotic as the Middle East has become since Obama took office, the situation in the Ukraine has the possibility of getting the Russians and the West involved in a potential widening conflict.
Awhile back, I wrote a column on the Obama foreign policy doctrine which I labeled, “Speak Loudly and Carry a Feather Duster”. It looks like my evaluation was right on the money.
The U.S. is no longer looked upon with fear and respect around the world, as Obama is perceived as a leader who has personified as being all “bluff and bluster”. Let’s just hope we, as a nation, can survive the incompetence of the Obama Administration.

After all the scandalous events and incidents, it wouldn't be a
stretch to suspect the White House issued a directive to the
shutdown enforcers, to make it as unpleasantly hard and
inconvenient for the public until it hurts. Then contact their
media friends to demonize Republicans and Tea Party so as
to make it look like they are the heavies and small government
The GOP will lose this battle for the people if they don't get
their act together and quit fighting among themselves. "If a
house is divided against itself, that house will not be able
to stand".....MARK 3:25
Explaining this administration's economic posture and increasing
the debt ceiling in simple terms; it is like going to the boss
and demanding he give you a raise, because you bought a bunch
of stuff that maxed out your credit card, and you just got your
statement to pay it off by the 17th, or the electricity will
be turned off, your automobile will be repossessed, phone
service shut out along with cable and Internet connection;
also facing eviction.
With a temporary fix put in by the clowns in Washington to meet
our obligations, they gave the head Bozzo time to tend to other
spending projects such as immigration reform that if done his
way, will increase government assistance by any where from ten
to thirty million more democrat voters on the dole. In order to
be able to give you a raise, the boss has to increase the price
of doing business to cover it.
Guess who always gets stuck with the bill in the end?

If you’ve been paying attention to the news lately, you’ve seen our “illustrious” President, Barack Hussein Obama, going around the country and bloviating about that, through his actions, people are receiving monetary benefits and goodies that only he, by his good nature and kind benevolence, can give them as the Emperor (oops, I mean President). It’s like he is the modern-day Robin Hood, taking money from the “rich” and giving it to the poor. This is right out of the Karl Marx playbook, the father of Marxism/Socialism. The major tenet of the Marxist/Socialist philosophy is “income redistribution”, taking from the have’s and giving to the have not’s. It is a failed economic system, which can be explained succinctly by that “Iron Lady”, the late Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of Great Britain, who said:
“The trouble with Socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples money”.
This is where our “Liar in Chief” Obama comes in, he’s the present day Santa Claus giving out gifts to the many poor, lower middle income people, and “low information” voters, in hopes of getting their support come election time. It worked like a charm for him in the 2008 and 2012 elections. From his actions, it seems that he is very generous with other people’s money (our money, the taxpayers money), money which is not his own, but he thinks it is his to dole out as he sees fit (does the phrase “benevolent despot” come to mind?).
This pandering to the no-income and lower income people, appeals to the masses of people who are looking for something for nothing, (by the way, there are many more of these people than there are of the higher income people), but, as an offset, what affect will it have on the survival of our country as a whole? We can’t continue on the road to racking up massive deficits year after year.
An op-ed column by a Elmer T. Peterson, written in The Daily Oklahoman newspaper back in the year 1951, seems to sum up the dangers of this policy and mindset as it applies to us. He said:
“A democracy can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largesse out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, and then a monarchy”.
It seems we are headed in that direction as the people seem to like feeding on the national “teat” of Uncle Sam, which might eventually lead to our demise unless we “right the ship” and act in the best interest of the entire country and not just for the free-loaders (the takers) who want more and more “free” stuff from the government coffers.
So, yes, our leader, Barack Hussein Obama, should now take on the sobriquet of “President Santa Claus”, as that is what he has been blatantly been doing, by handing out goodies and freebies like free cell phones, easier rules and regulations to get government handouts, extending unemployment benefits to 99 weeks (from the usual 26 weeks), and special favors to the unions and political contributors, as president to gin up support for himself and the Democratic Party. If it continues like it has and the Republicans retreat in the face of adversity and a hostile media, we could witness another form of the demise of the Roman Empire, only this time it will be the Western Civilization that collapses.
