Inconvenient Truths About the Man-made Global Warming Scam December 7, 2016

Experts said Arctic sea ice would melt entirely by September 2016 – they were wrong.

Texas has been cooling since 1895, but that doesn’t suit NOAA’s global warming agenda. So they keep cooling the past further and further to create the appearance of a warming trend.

The UN bans skeptical journalists from climate summit for holding views not particularly helpful.

The Earth is heading towards another ice age as solar magnetic activity is set to drop by up to sixty per cent in the next fifteen years.

Winters may be getting colder in the Northeast.

The Weather Channel video uses young kids, scaring them about their lack of a future to promote global warming fears.

Looking to the hypocrites who are perpetrating this scam we have our Secretary of State who never saw a Global Warming photo op he didn’t like.  On one Trip to the Antarctic, Kerry produced as much CO2 as an average American does in one year.

The whole Global Warming scam is nothing more than a power grab.  The collectivists lost their homeland when that great gulag of nations the USSR imploded in 1991.  Since then they have been trying to use the mythical man-made global warming campaign as a back door to world-wide power.

Feeling that they have enough cover to state openly what is really going on  the U.N.’s climate chief Christina Figueres candidly admitted that the organizers’ ultimate goal was “to change the [capitalist] economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution.”

Another U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) official, Ottmar Edenhofer confirmed the travesty of global warming treaties, “ . . . one has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. Instead, climate change policy is about how we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth . . . ”

As reported on the Deplorable Climate Science Blog site; NOAA claimed record heat in numerous locations is September in Africa and the Middle East.  This is a remarkable feat, given that they don’t have any actual thermometers in those regions. In fact, NOAA doesn’t have any thermometers on about half of the land surface.  Satellite temperatures showed that September was close to normal in those regions which NOAA declared to be record hot.  Not only is the land data fake, but much of the ocean data is fake too.  The global surface temperature record is garbage. This is the 21st century, and it needs to be replaced by satellite temperatures which show little or no warming this century.

The climate bullies are afraid that Donald Trump is going to do what he said he was going to do, free America from the wealth draining insanity of man-made global warming reparations.  Consequently at the recent giant carbon footprint that marks their latest confab in Marrakesh Morocco.   In a statement, the ministers at the meeting said momentum for cutting greenhouse gases was “irreversible” and reaffirmed their commitment to “full implementation” of the Paris accord.

They went on to say, “We call for the highest political commitment to combat climate change, as a matter of urgent priority,” in the Marrakesh Action Proclamation.  And, “Our climate is warming at an alarming and unprecedented rate and we have an urgent duty to respond.”  After which the elite delegates applauded, joined hands above their heads in standing ovation after the proclamation was read out having one of their international kumbaya moments that always end up costing the American tax payer a fortune.  This one is estimated at 100 billion, that’s, billion with a ‘b’ from both public and private sources, by 2020 to help developing countries.  Sounds like income redistribution to me and I wonder if any of these climate collectivists will be riding to the airport in a wind powered limo or flying home in a solar powered jet?

President Obama and the American Progressives have been willing conspirators in this attack on American sovereignty.  They have negotiated treaties and signed accords which are designed to impoverish the US and transfer that wealth to the UN.

Up until now the collectivists have had an easy path using this alternative approach to enslaving mankind.  They have brainwashed generations to live in fear of man-made global warming though none has taken place since before most of them were born.  They have had the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media and their cable network step sisters blaring out their propaganda for decades.  They have made major movies about the day after and other apocalyptic scenarios.  They have recorded hit songs, staged protest rallies, and in general done everything they can to scare people into putting the noose around the neck of Western Civilization.

Now we are living in the post-wave election world of 2016. President-elect Trump has promised to reverse the course.  He has labeled man-made global warming for the scam it is and promised to free America from the mass of threads with which the Lilliputians have ensnared us.

Trump has pledged to follow the GOP platform committee’s call for “ . . . an immediate halt to U.S. funding for the U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in accordance with the 1994 Foreign Relations Authorization Act.”

What about that disaster waiting to be implemented: the Paris Climate Agreement?  Since in his hubris President Obama never bothered to even try to have it ratified by the Senate as required by the Constitution, the newly invigorated Republican-controlled House and Senate can pass a law stating that it is null and void.  And if that is too bold for the Ryan-led House or the McConnell-led Senate a President Trump, according to the agreement itself, can pull out of it by issuing a one-year notice.

Trump has said he will have no part in funding a $100 billion annual U.N. pledge by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “to help poor countries adapt to global warming.”  During the campaign the Republican presidential nominee told supporters at a Florida campaign, “We will also cancel billions in global warming payments to the United Nations, and use that money to support America’s vital environmental infrastructure and natural resources.”

In his economic speech at the New York Economic Club he summed it all up, “We’re going to keep our money here and our jobs here and bring our jobs back.”

One way to judge the reality of the man-made global warming scam has been pointed out by Rush Limbaugh for many years.  If we decided we wanted to raise the temperature of the globe by one degree by 2020 what would we do?  What program could we follow or what steps would be implemented to make this happen?  Obviously all can see that this would be impossible.  If we cannot raise the world’s temperature deliberately what a ridiculous thought that we could do it just by living in a modern word using electricity and driving cars.

Another way of looking at the man-made global warming issue is to remember that our records only go back a few hundred years at most.  The Earth is billions of years old.  In the past there have been multiple ice ages and even a snowball Earth when the entire planet was frozen from pole to pole.  Each of these multi-million year freeze events have been followed by warm periods.  Where were the SUVs and smokestacks responsible for all that warming?  For that matter how do we explain the cooling?

I may be way out in right field here, but I believe that gigantic nuclear fusion explosion we revolve around that rises and sets every day of our lives might have more to do with global warming or cooling than anything anyone or all of us could ever do.

Let’s get over ourselves and admit there is only One who can hold the world in His hand.  There is only One who was there when the heavens were made and the limit was set for the sea.  There is only One who knows the end from the beginning.  And there is only One who controls the thermostat for this planet and it isn’t us.

Trump the Chumps and Choose the Heroes December 5, 2016

No one in the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media and their step-sisters in the cable news industry shrink from giving their critique of President-elect Trump’s cabinet choices.  They still have the same talking heads who got everything wrong for the last year telling us what we are supposed to think.

As someone who began predicting Trump’s victory last January, I feel I have a right to at least make some suggestions for those positions still unannounced.  I believe that Mr. Trump and his team of political savants will in the end make the best choices however here are my suggestions just in case anyone is interested.

Secretary of Veteran Affairs – Sarah Palin

Secretary of Homeland Security – Sherriff Joe Arpaio

Director of ICE and Immigration Services – Sherriff David Clarke

Press Secretary – Monica Crowley

Chairman of the Economic Advisors – Larry Kudlow

Director, Office of Management and Budget (OMB) – David Stockman

Director, Environmental Protection Agency – Myron Ebell

Secretary of Agriculture – Forrest Lucas

Director of National Intelligence – Admiral Mike Rogers

Secretary of State – Gen. David Petraeus

Secretary of Energy – Myron Ebell

Secretary of Housing and Urban Development – Ben Carson

For RICO charges – The Clinton Foundation or as I see it New York’s Sixth Crime Family

For Prisoner 0000000000000001 – Hillary Clinton

For retirement and the dustbin of History – BHO

Our coming “Let the Chips Fall Where They May” 45th President will call the tune.  We just need some patriots who are ready to sing off the same sheet of music and Make America Great Again!

Trump Triumph Tour Takes America By Storm December 2, 2016

The Donald showed with his surprise (to some / I started predicting it in January) upset election that he is the consummate political strategist in America today. In addition, he has shown with the unprecedented work to save jobs before he is even inaugurated that he will deliver on his promises to Make America Great Again.

His speech in Ohio last night was a real barn burner.  It set the crowd on fire and inspired millions across the fruited planes.  I can’t imagine what he will give as an inaugural speech that could top that.  I am sure multiple millions of us will tune in to find out.  I would also suggest tuning in to the rest of his Triumph Tour speeches.  Last night he had a surprise announcement that he couldn’t make but he told us all in advance.  I’d share it here but it is a secret….;–)

With the Impresario himself to orchestrate and with Kellyanne Conway and the team to advise I firmly believe we are on track to Make America Great Again.

However, as one lone voice hunkered in the bunker out here on the prairie I would like to add my wish list to the long dreamed of, long fought for, and much anticipated restoration administration:

Counter the VAT taxes the rest of the world uses to put tariffs by another name on us and to subsidize their exports with a VAT tax of our own on all imports.

Quit the WTO, the IMF, and the UN.

Make America the most business friendly place on earth with lower corporate taxes, reduced taxes on repatriated money, cut the noose of regulations that strangles our productivity.

Repeal and replace that job killing destroyer of the American healthcare system; Obamacare.

Re-negotiate or leave NAFTA and every other one-way trade deal the globalists have devised to make America just one among many.

In other words Mr. Trump do what you said you would do.  You laid out a plan to make America Great Again and enough of us bought into it to elect you to be our president.  Now deliver on those promises.  Fulfill that vision and watch as the snowflake demonstrators turn into supporters once they learn that these policies will bring jobs, prosperity and the satisfaction of earning your own way instead of riding on the backs of others.  If you do this and you will not only Make America Great Again you will go down in History as one of America’s greatest presidents.  As the Historian of the Future I can guarantee that with a promise of my own.

Why the Progressives Want a Recount They Know They Will Lose November 30, 2016

Posted by Dr. Robert Owens in Politics, Politiocal Philosophy.
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

The recount in Wisconsin and the coming ones in Michigan and Pennsylvania will not change the outcomes in any of those states.  Even though the party of Mayor Daley, Boss Tweed, and their big city machines are famous for winning recounts by finding bags of votes in candy store basements no recount has ever changed thousands of votes let alone tens of thousands.  I do not believe changing the outcome is the purpose.  It is instead changing the perception of it.

I predict that they will demand the recounts are done by hand.  This would make them take so long these three pivotal States would not certify their results by the last day possible for directing their Electors how to vote.  If all three states miss the deadline, Trump is at 260, Hillary at 232.  No one hits 270.

Then, according to the Constitution, the election would go to Congress.   The House votes with one vote per State.  The Republican House would then elect Donald Trump as the 45th president.  The Republican Senate would elect Pence Vice President.

This has happened before.  In 1824, though Andrew Jackson had more popular votes and more electoral votes John Quincy Adams won in the House.  President Adams made a deal with the Speaker of the House Henry Clay who Adams then named as his Secretary of State, which at the time was considered the stepping stone to the presidency.  This was immediately termed the Corrupt Bargain by supporters of Jackson.  The antagonistic presidential race of 1828 began practically before Adams took office.  To the Jacksonians the Adams-Clay alliance symbolized a corrupt system where elite insiders pursued their own interests without heeding the will of the people.

This is Hillary and the Progressives strategy to place the mantel of corrupt elite insiders on the Republicans now that they see the nation is incensed against the circle of Progressive power brokers who led us from the pinnacle of prosperity to the brink of bankruptcy.  This is akin to how the Democrats have successfully placed the mantel of racist on the party of Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation.  What a masterful stroke of political maneuvering that convinced the descendants of slaves that their natural allies are the descendants of Jim Crow.

If this goes to the US House and Senate, and the result is the same as the result from the Electoral College without the recounts, why do it?  The answer is to make Trump seem completely illegitimate. They and their obedient shills in the media will tell us every day and at every opportunity that Trump did not win the popular vote saying he lost by over 2.1 million ignoring the fact that millions of illegals voted.  He did not win the Electoral College since in this scenario he would not have attained 270.  They will say just as they did about Bush the Younger that he was not elected he was selected by members of his own party in Congress.

However, there is one wrinkle in this strategy.  If a state never gets to name electors, the number needed to win does not remain the 270 needed if every state names every elector.  In that case it would once again be a majority of those named.  Even with 260-232, Trump would still win.  Then again the thugs on the left are sending death threats to electors already named trying to frighten some of them into becoming faithless electors who do not vote as instructed by their States.  I don’t foresee this happening.  The number of faithless electors in American History doesn’t make a handful.

So if after all these devious machinations Trump still wins without the election being thrown into Congress this would only be used by the Sandernistas and the Clintonites to cry rigged system.  They would keep their bully boys from Black Lives Matter and Move On in the streets for years while they hope and pray that Trump’s policies don’t make America great again which could solidify his hold over the working men and women throughout the nation.

No matter how this evil strategy plays out, whether the election is thrown into Congress or if Trump wins with a majority of a short electoral count, we will have four years of the Democrats calling this another Corrupt Bargain.  They will try to disrupt the inauguration.  They will have protestors outside the White House from day one.  They will have demonstrations everywhere President Trump goes.  They may even try to incite mass marches and violence in the rotted hulks of our once magnificent cities they control like medieval fiefdoms.  Using their big megaphone in the media they will use print, broadcast, movies, and songs to agitate their followers for the 2020 rematch between the Donald and perhaps Senator Elizabeth Warren or whoever they can scrape up to be the new face for their shopworn collectivist movement.

In other words they know the recount won’t change anything but they hope it will be enough to energize their low information base for a restoration of corporate socialism in four more years.

Pretending to gives he really takes

Pretending to love he really hates

Supposed to leave he’s going to stay

Supposed to be quiet he’ll have plenty to say

Instead of a present he’ll leave us in debt

Instead of fond memories we’ll come to regret

The Bad Santa who came promising hope and change

The Bad Santa who left but stays on the stage

Twas the night after the election and all through land

We’re still hoping for change we pray is at hand

Ding Dong the Witch is dead

Billy Bongs still sleazy and Uncle Bernie’s a red

Pocahontas and Michelle wait in the wings

The Donald must deliver or in four years the Fat Lady sings

Trump Triumph Now Do What You Said You Would Do November 14, 2016

Posted by Dr. Robert Owens in Politics, Politiocal Philosophy.

I was a house painter for many years.  In a profession famous for drunks who show up late, finish late, and inflate prices in between I found that if I did what I said I was going to do when I said I was going to do it for the price agreed upon I never ran out of work.  As a matter of fact I was always the highest priced and most sought after painter in every market I ever entered with a six month waiting list and satisfied customers.

I give the same advice to President-Elect Donald Trump that I gave myself, do what you said you would do, when you said you would do it and for the price agreed upon.

Don’t take a bite out of the poison apple that has betrayed every wave election since 2010.  Don’t twist yourself into a pretzel reaching across the aisle to the very Progressives you vowed to repudiate and who your followers voted to retire.

The Democrats are masters at snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.  Look at 2010, the great Tea Party wave election.  President Obama comes out the next day and says we got shellacked and then proceeds to act as if he had won and the Republican leadership fell into line re-authorizing the Patriot Act, passing the continuing resolutions and generally acting like a water boy for the Progressive first string.  In 2012 the Republican nominee won the first debate and then virtually conceded the next two agreeing with almost everything his opponent said.  Then he disappeared for the last two weeks of the campaign.  In 2014 another wave gave the Republicans the Senate to go along with the House and what have they done?

Mr. Trump don’t let the Pollyannas lead you down the primrose path.  Stand strong.  To paraphrase Winston Churchill: your victory is not the end.  It is not even the beginning of the end.  It is but the end of the beginning.  Now is the time that tests men’s souls.  Now is the time to be resolute in the face of the Progressives of Left and Right, their propaganda arm in the media, and their bully-boys in the streets.  These are the very people who have been trying to destroy you for eighteen months and trying to subvert and transform our nation for a century.  Now is not the time to try and compromise our way to unity with everything the movement you lead has been trying to push off the stage.

Rush Limbaugh uses the example of the Second World War in the Pacific.  We did not compromise our way to unity with Japan.  We demanded unconditional surrender.  They offered to negotiate and we continued to demand unconditional surrender.  It was not until they laid down every weapon and surrendered unconditionally that we welcomed them back into the family of nations.  Japan repudiated their fascist system, embraced democracy and capitalism, and we are still united with them to this day.

Pat Buchanan uses the examples of FDR and LBJ as presidents who used their landmark victories to launch America in new directions that have left indelible marks and shaped the course of our nation for generations.  He also used the example of Nixon in 1968 who failed to seize the initiative instead trying to compromise and appease the Progressives.  A decision he regretted the rest of his life.  Reagan is another example of a president who successfully used the momentum of victory to change the course of America.  And he only had one house of Congress.  You have two.

Step out boldly onto the stage of History and make a place for yourself as one of the greatest presidents of all time.

You are the consummate business man.  You took a loan of one million dollars and turned it into billions.  A feat which I am sure sounds much easier than it is.  You wrote the book on thinking big, deal making, getting rich, and never giving up.  You have surrounded yourself with the best and the brightest.  Work this transition like no one has since FDR, and when your hand comes off that Bible move decisively from the Obamanation to Trump Triumph.

Have a second Scalia picked, vetted and ready to nominate.  Announce an all-star cabinet with marching orders to clear the path for a return to limited government, personal freedom, and economic opportunity.  Untie the hands of our border patrol, give us a time table for building the wall, and give ICE the green light to start deporting those illegals who have been convicted of crimes.  Cut of all federal funds for sanctuary cities.  Having coordinated with Congressional leadership introduce bills to repeal and replace Obamacare, repeal Dodd-Frank, pass a new Glass–Steagall Act, and open the door for the re-patriation of American corporate profits held off shore.  Begin the work of untangling the nightmare the Neo-con Progressive axis has made of our foreign policy.  And make all of BHO’s unconstitutional executive orders null and void.

In other words, do what you said you would do, when you said you would do it and for the price agreed upon.  What was the price?  We give you the presidency and you give us our country back.  Now is not the time for a bunt.  This is the time to swing for the bleachers.

Don’t crack your back leaning across the aisle or you might end up with people looking back at all you have promised and trying to read your lips.  If that happens in four years the very movement that has catapulted you to the pinnacle of power may end up saying, “You’re fired.”

America Rising November 9, 2016

After the greatest upset in American History we have stepped from the precipice of the abyss and now stand upon the threshold of renewal.  America’s setting sun is rising again.

That hope we voted for was not the victim of a late term abortion.  It was not still born in the continuation of corrupt politics, failed policies, and deliberate defeat.  Instead we open our eyes on the possibility that after passing through the darkness of the Obamanation on January 20, 2017 we will once again experience the pride and satisfaction of America fulfilling its destiny as the home of the brave and the land of the free.

In the coming months as the Progressives prepare to slink out of the swamp to plot and plan their restoration we must be on guard for the flurry of executive orders, presidential actions, midnight appointments, and pardons that will inevitably spew out of the Oval Office.  Now that the Donald has cleared the path and shown the way let us hope that in these waning days of a lame duck administration the Republicans who control Congress will find the courage to stop President Obama from making the swamp that much more malignant.

As we celebrate the great victory let us stand ready to pitch in and help realizing that there will be sacrifices required to flush the bilge and right the ship of state.

Trump Vote is a Vote for Hope November 8, 2016

Marching out of Yorktown to surrender the British Army played the song “The World Turned Upside Down.”  As I drive to Meg Lo Mart to make my latest deposit of monopoly money in a Chinese savings account all I can do is mumble the final tag-line of the Wicked Witch of the West, “What a world. What a world.”

There is a massive unspoken problem in America today, floating like the iceberg in front of the Titanic waiting to sink the unsinkable ship.  Founded by revolutionaries crying “No taxation without representation!” the Republic these revolutionaries devised has devolved into a society where more than 40% of the people pay no Federal Income Tax and the number of people receiving government benefits is even higher.  What incentive would these non-paying receivers have to reign in an overbearing and intrusive government?  This unseen and unspoken problem is a cancer in the body politic.

Self-serving professional politicians buy votes by exempting non-productive people from personal financial responsibility while providing ever-expanding benefits at the expense of the productive.  This is not the right versus left, conservative versus liberal, Democrat versus Republican he-said-she-said endless debate that devours the chatocracy of cable’s wall-to-wall talking-heads.  This is not an academic exercise that pointy-headed Political Science and History majors with dueling pocket protectors debate for hours in their mother’s basement as they post their latest scoop on their samizdat blogs. If it is not any of these things what is it?  It is a dagger pointing directly at the heart of our civilization.

Western Civilization awoke from the slumber of the Dark Ages enlightened and empowered by a belief, based in the Judeo-Christian tradition that humanity has an innate right to be free and a natural right to excel.  Rights and freedoms are given by God not bestowed at the whim of some legend-in-his-own-mind Leader.  This civilization gathered steam in Europe exploding upon the world stage through an energetic period of exploration.

In America after a revolution fought by farmers and merchants against the greatest empire of the day the Founders, dared to declare “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” After centuries of government thugs standing on the windpipe of everyday people these self-sacrificing giants observed that in a civilized world government was not imposed by the strong upon the weak it was instead built upon a social contract between the governed and those entrusted with the privilege to govern when they said, “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

Today this bold and unique experiment in freedom is being devoured from within and challenged from without.  Those who believe the collective should reign over the individual, those who believe in the suffocating sameness of socialism over the rough-and-tumble of capitalism have worked for generations building a culture of dependency which has tempered the steel will of the pioneers into the sloppy demands of the couch-potato slacker waiting for someone to find their remote as they guzzle some refreshments and wait for the game as bread and circuses take the place of innovation and accomplishment.  Schools teaching 2+2 might = 5, trophies for everyone, politically correct new-speak and affirmative action promotions have sapped the vitality from the citizens of our Republic.  Politicians and their fellow-travelers use a system of cronies and sweet-heart deals to reward each other for siphoning trillions from the public treasury promising the dumbed-down descendants of revolutionaries that they just might win the lotto before they have to declare bankruptcy so they might as well re-elect the same old grafters once again.

There comes a time when those who are raising the sails and paddling the boat have to admit to themselves the ballast down in steerage weighs more than the cargo.  There comes a time when even the most non-confrontational and loyal among us begin to ask, “Who is John Galt” as Atlas tires of his thankless job and shrugs the burden of dead-weight into the dustbin of history.  As the perpetually-reelected and the propaganda spewing Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media trumpet the inevitability of government rationed health-care, cap-n-trade industrial suicide, comprehensive import-a-voter immigration reform and the surrender of sovereignty through treaties supposedly designed to deliver so-called free trade and deal with  mythical global warming there shines a light in a bell tower, one if by land and two if by sea.

Voting for Hillary is voting for the final nail in our coffin.  Four more years of open borders, give-away trade deals, and unilateral disarmament and the United States we have known and loved will be merely a memory as Obama’s promise to fundamentally transform America will have been realized and we become the United Socialist States of America.

A vote for Donald Trump is a vote for hope.  As a person who has been politically aware and involved since 1960 I can say without exaggeration that several of Mr. Trump’s speeches, specifically his Economic Speech, his America First Speech, and his Gettysburg Address were among the clearest and most inspirational I have ever heard.  They rank right up there with the epic speech of Ronald Reagan to the 1976 Republican Convention.  I have waited my whole life to hear a leader who wants to serve America first.  If his Contract with America is implemented it will create a pathway to make America great again.  Get out and vote.  Vote for Donald Trump.  Vote for hope.

Without hope you’re hopeless and I refuse to allow the unbelievable changes currently assaulting our economy and our political system to bring about my own personal Great Depression.  Those who believe in the Devil believe he comes to steal, kill and destroy.  I believe if he can’t steal your joy he can’t keep your stuff and weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning.  Don’t despair pray.  Why worry when you can pray?  Don’t give up, give it up to God.  Let me ask you, “Do you have hope?”  I hope so.  Personally as for me and my house we will trust the Lord for our hope is in Christ.
