By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots on cprworldwidemedia.com
You were elected by this nation’s largest and most influential entity…We the People…on November 4th, 2014. Please substitute the word “HIRED” for the word…”ELECTED.”
WE want YOU to know that YOU work for US…not the other way around and if you fail to do what WE have HIRED you to do…WE…will fire…YOU.
Let’s start with our borders.
SEAL THEM UP. This is the United States of America and our laws do NOT allow trespassing by those who are not on the guest list so shut those borders down. Enforce the existing laws regarding deportation of ILLEGAL ALIENS and build a damn fence…guard it…electrify it if need be to keep those whom you deport as well as those trying to take from us what is ours, from sneaking into our country.
There ARE legal ways of coming to this country and all who respect those means are more than welcome to be here. That system needs work…streamlining…do that but not until after you have shut the border down.
Define our enemies and kill them. Don’t leave the theater until the job is done and leave a few Members of our military there to maintain the peace.
Don’t worry about collateral damage or offending those with a 7th century mentality. They don’t worry about offending us and they don’t give a damn about collateral damage either.
Seek them out…destroy their ability to spread and…kill them.
QUIT sending OUR money to countries that want to KILL us!!! Support our FRIENDS around the world…help those who need medicine or have been harmed by forces or others out of their control but…ENOUGH WITH SENDING OUR MONEY TO THOSE WHO WANT US AND OUR ALLIES DEAD!!!
For instance…no more money for “Palestine.” in the first place…there is no Palestine and in the second place…all they do with it is give it to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood who are trying like hell to destroy Israel and kill all the Jews. ISRAEL AND THE JEWS ARE OUR FRIENDS…HAMAS AND THE “PALESTINIANS” ARE OUR ENEMIES.
Knock that crap off.
Repeal it…defund it…get rid of it. It’s socialism. It is bleeding us dry and the quality of our healthcare is already going down the toilet. It’s not what we were promised…not at all what we need and certainly not what we want.
Obamacare is based on lies, was passed with bribes and has been altered by mandate without consent of congress ever since.
It’s rife with fraud and it leaves We the People open to identity theft while it is driving UP the cost of healthcare, deductibles and prescriptions.
BUILD THAT DAMN KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE!!!
The cost of a gallon of gas has been dropping but NOT because of anything done by this current regime. It’s because PRIVATE companies are drilling and retrieving gas from oil shale in North Dakota on PRIVATE land and OPEC is flooding the market because they’re pissing in their pants over the fact we are producing more of our own energy so…ENOUGH WITH THE “SKY-IS-FALLING” EPA REGULATIONS…DRILL SOME MORE HOLES AND OPEN UP GOVERNMENT CONTROLLED LAND TO DO IT!!!
>FYI: Nowhere in the constitution does it allow for Federal land ownership. The Feds only need D.C. and military bases. All the rest belongs to their respective States and We the People!!!<
Between getting oil to our southern refineries via that pipeline from our FRIENDS in Canada and tapping our own oil at HOME…we can become energy INDEPENDENT in a few years so…DO IT and while you’re at it…USE OUR MONEY TO SUPPORT CLEAN COAL AND STOP THROWING IT AWAY ON UNAFFORDABLE GREEN ENERGY THAT DOESN’T WORK or is unaffordable!!!
We HIRED you to get these things done so DO them.
Defund and shut down the Department of Education.
They’re too butt stupid to be on our payroll and they’re making our kids stupid by osmosis. Stupid kids become stupid adults and the last thing we need of our next generation is a bunch of stupid adults in charge of everything that are so damn fragile that their feelings get hurt if they’re not allowed to believe that 2+2=17.
Trust me…they’ll feel a lot better when they LEARN 2+2=4 and they’ll be an ASSET to society later in life.
Make it ILLEGAL for unions to FORCE membership on workers. If the unions are worthy, workers will join them. If not, they won’t but it should be THEIR CHOICE whether or not they JOIN a union and if union rolls drop and they can’t sustain themselves then guess what? They must not have been worth crap to begin with.
Quit using our money to fund abortion clinics. It’s not healthcare and both you and they damn well know it. Let those who support the practice donate THEIR money to them and quit making those who DON’T support the practice PAY for it.
Liberals are always squealing about being “fair” and well…THAT’S fair.
Clear off Harry Reid’s desk. There are more than 365 bills…PASSED by the 113th House sitting there because HE wouldn’t allow them to come to the senate floor for a vote. PUT THEM ON THE FLOOR AND VOTE ON THEM…pass them and send them to the Lame Ducktator. If he VETOS them…try to OVERRIDE the vetos and if that doesn’t work we won’t blame YOU but we WILL replace HIM.
CUT THE BUDGET!!!
Too much of OUR money is being wasted…spent on pet project CRAP and we DON’T need to know how fast a SHRIMP can run on a treadmill. CUT the stuff we don’t need. CLOSE any and ALL government offices who have a long history of WASTING our money.
Use that money to invest in our MILITARY as THAT is an investment in FREEDOM and LIBERTY that WILL pay dividends for our children who know that 2+2=4 and their children as well.
The Obama scandals…
Where do I start?
Go full on, in his grill DEEP with the investigations into Fast and Furious…Benghazi…the IRS and the spying. SUBPOENA HIS NARROW ASS…HILLARY’S WIDE ASS…HOLDER’S ASS…LEARNERS ASS and all the rest of the asses…THERE IS TREASON THERE…IMPEACH HIM AND ARREST HIM!!! ARREST THEM ALL and put them on trial.
Make it known that now that YOU hold sway in the House AND in the senate…whistle blowers have nothing to fear. THEY WILL BE PROTECTED and WE need to know the TRUTH.
DON’T DO IT!!!
There is NOTHING that they have done over the last 6 years while this regime has been in place that has been good for America. Not one damn thing. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY QUARTER…NOT ONE INCH!!!
We hired YOU to stand UP to them and to undo the damage they have brought upon our nation.
If what they want…SOCIALISM…had been working…YOU wouldn’t have been hired to FIX it.
Tell the “Constitutional Law Professor” to keep his damn hands OFF our guns…give us our privacy and stay the hell out of our religious faiths. We will stand with the Constitution and our founding documents even if he doesn’t and YOU would be wise to stand with US.
Don’t lie to us. We’re in no mood to be lied to. Tell us the truth…not what you think we want to hear because when you start doing that, you’ll say one thing to this group and another to that group. We can smell bullshit upwind from a mile away.
Our founders and framers entrusted to us a short leash upon which you are to be tethered and we will honor that trust. They entrusted us to remain engaged and to hold you accountable. We will honor those trusts too.
Many of you who were hired were not the first choice of many Conservatives and we have the clothes pins to prove it but you would not be where you are today were it not for us. You know it and so do we.
Know that if you fail to deliver…if you fail to be honest and trustworthy employees of We the People…we will fire you and find more suitable replacements.
This coming January, you will be sworn in. You will vow to uphold and defend the Constitution and we will be watching…every day…to make sure you do.
Remember…the same people who sent you to Washington can send you packing.
Fellow Americans…if you agree with this letter, I encourage you to sign your name and your state in the comment box below and forward the link to this letter to as many Members of Congress as you feel need to read it.
I will sign it here!!!

I would add kicking the U.N. out of the USA and resigning from that useless organization!
Abolishing the Dept. of Energy, and by extension the EPA. These are State, not Federal functions! Check your Constitution.

For decades now both the U.S. and Europe have suffered the arrogance and the lies of so-called “climate experts.” Mind you, there are some real ones and, when it comes to global warming and climate change, the interchangeable names for the lies, they are the ones labeled “deniers” and worse for telling the truth.
The fundamental lie is that humans, through their use of fossil fuels, coal, oil and natural gas, are creating huge amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) which in turn is warming the Earth. You will hear the lies again when the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change releases its latest report.
“The report should galvanize the world to take urgent and collective action to curb climate change,” says Frances Beinecke, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council. “We’re almost out of time to avoid the worst…”
We have been told this since the 1980s. It is pure fear mongering.
The problem for the phony “climate experts” is that the Earth has not warmed in the last 19 years and CO2 plays a minimal role in the alleged warming. What you never hear the “climate experts” tell you is that CO2 is vital to all life on Earth because it is the “food” that all vegetation depends upon for growth. More CO2 is a very good thing and, in the past, its levels in the atmosphere have been much higher.
On October 24 my eye was caught by a news article that reported that “European Union leaders agreed on a set of long-term targets on energy and climate change, Friday, giving financial sweeteners and weakening some objectives along the way to secure a deal…European leaders committed to cutting carbon emissions by at least 40% by 2030 compared with 1990 levels, which will be legally binding on every member state.”
One of the real meteorologists, Anthony Watts, took notice of the EU. “…Anyone who is expecting a rational re-appraisal of European environment policy—don’t underestimate the blind determination of Europe’s green elite to fulfill their dream of an emission free Europe. They will, in my opinion, happily bomb the European economy back into the stone age to achieve their ridiculous goal.”
In November of last year, Holman W. Jenkins, Jr., a columnist for The Wall Street Journal, took note of Germany’s “love affair with renewables (solar and wind energy) brings high prices, potential blackouts, and worries about ‘deindustrialization.’”
“Like Mao urging peasants to melt down their pots, pans and farm tools to turn China into a steel-producing superpower overnight, Germany dished out subsidies to encourage homeowners and farms to install solar panels and windmills and sell energy back to the power company at inflated prices. Success—Germany now gets 25% of its power from renewables—has turned out to be a disaster.”
Jenkins noted that not only had Germany’s output of carbon dioxide increased, but “money-strapped utilities have switched to burning cheap American coal to provide the necessary standby power when wind and sun fail.” The cost of electricity rates in Germany is triple those in the U.S.
Yes, solar and wind power everywhere require fossil fuel plants as a backup whenever the sun is obscured by clouds or the wind doesn’t blow. In the U.S., Obama’s “war on coal” has decreased the number of utilities that utilize it and, in turn, reduced the amount of electricity available. The prospect of blackouts here has increased. If we encounter a harsh winter, that would put people’s lives in danger.
One has to understand that the lies about global warming and/or climate change are in fact an environmental agenda designed to reduce industrialization and the use of energy everywhere.
Harold Schwager, a senior member of BASF’s executive board said in an interview, “Many European companies which are energy-intensive are finding out that the benefits of shifting investment to the U.S. are significant.” Germany and the EU are driving out industry and the jobs it represents because of their idiotic carbon dioxide emissions policies.
This is why we all need to understand the real “environmental” agenda. Writing in the Financial Times on October 27, Nick Butler said “Last week’s European summit on climate change failed to address the hard reality that current policies are not working.”
As in the U.S. the construction of wind turbine farms such as the one offshore of Borkum, Germany in the North Sea only exist by virtue of extensive subsidies that are wreaking havoc on European energy markets. That’s the reality!
Here in the U.S. in 2008, then-candidate Barack Obama gave a speech in Golden, Colorado, saying that his planned investments in “green energy” would create “five million new jobs that pay well and can’t ever been outsourced.”
How did that work out? Six years later we know those “green” jobs were not created and that his energy policies have actually reduced the production of vital electricity. Will new jobs in industries dependent on fossil-fuels be created? Yes and they will come from European industrial investment and increased oil and natural gas production here despite Obama’s agenda.
That is why the European Union’s idiotic commitment to cut greenhouse gas emissions (CO2) is putting the entire continent in danger and that is why America has to stop providing subsidies and tax breaks to “renewable”, “green” energy here and mandating its use.
Whenever you hear some “climate expert” or politician refer to global warming or climate change, they are lying to you. We have more CO2 in the atmosphere and the Earth is still in a cooling cycle.

I went out for a walk today and enjoyed seeing how the autumn leaves are changing color because autumn, simply stated, is one of the four seasons that affects the Earth. It is part of the change that occurs as it has for billions of years.
The notion that humans have anything to do with autumn or the other seasons or that we should be spending billions of dollars to have any effect on the climate of the Earth is utterly insane.
On October 10, The Hill reported that “The U.S. might make a substantial contribution in November to an international fund that helps poor nations fight climate change, according to Peruvian Foreign Minister Gonzalo Gutierrez.” Does anyone actually believe that any amount of money will change the climate? And yet, there is a United Nations Green Climate Fund. The UN is the locus of the climate change, formerly global warming hoax.
“So far, countries have put $2.3 billion into the fund” described as “a crucial negotiating piece for developed nations trying to woo poorer ones to the table for a global climate accord.” Can you imagine how that money could be put to better use to fight the real problems of poorer nations?
“The fund was officially launched in 2013, after industrialized nations first pitched it in 2009 during the Copenhagen meeting, setting a target of $100 billion by 2020 for developing nations.” The U.S. has yet to have contributed, but the U.S. is $18 trillion in debt and can ill afford to throw millions at this absurd scam.
Unfortunately, the U.S. is being led by a President who has said that climate change is the greatest challenge facing the Earth. Our Secretary of State repeats this absurdity. There is surely an agenda behind this that I have yet to have determined except to think that this President has done everything in his power to destroy the nation’s economy and the claim is part of that agenda.
The climate change lies Obama keeps repeating are more than just obscene, they pose a threat to national security as he directs our military to address climate change. In a sane world, he would be removed from office.
As a recent October 1st Wall Street Journal noted, “President Obama prophesied at the United Nations last week that climate change is the ‘one issue that will define the contours of this century more dramatically than any other,’ and perhaps this vision of Apocalypse explains why he thinks he can disregard the law to regulate carbon.”
Obama has been using the Environmental Protection Agency as his primary means of foisting the global warming/climate change hoax on the nation via a deluge of regulations to control “greenhouse gas emissions.” Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the bogyman the EPA and environmentalists have been telling us is driving up the Earth temperature. Only the Earth has been in a cooling cycle for eighteen years and, at the same time, the CO2 level in the atmosphere has increased! Without any effect on the temperature!
As the Wall Street Journal opinion noted “The EPA wants to reorganize U.S. electric power generation and drive coal and eventually natural gas out of the energy mix under a rarely used backwater of the Clean Air Act called section 111(d), whose mandates apply state by state.”
Now, however, thanks to an Ohio-based coal company, Murray Energy, along with a dozen states, the EPA is being sued as they seek a writ of mandamus, “a type of injunction the courts only grant when the government has taken an extraordinary action beyond its statutory authority.”
The courts are beginning to reject the EPA’s expansive claims of authority under the Clean Air Act. “The courts seem increasingly alarmed by abuses of executive power.” That is the only line of defense between this outlaw federal agency and the rest of us. The EPA has succeeded thus far in driving coal-fired energy plants out of business, reducing the amount of electricity they have produced affordably and efficiently for the last century and ours.
If the EPA is permitted to continue the U.S. might as well just turn off the lights because we are being systematically deprived of sufficient energy. That is the Obama agenda for America.

I confess I have always been wary of intellectuals. They love arcane theories that often have little to do with real life and this is particularly true of eco-intellectuals who have embraced a panoply of lies and claims about the “environment”, “fossil fuels”, “sustainability”, and other notions that permit them to bloviate without once addressing reality.
This has been a week of eco-propaganda on a global scale. On Sunday there were “Climate Marches.” On Tuesday there will be a UN “Climate Summit”, and there will likely be an avalanche of nonsense in the media intended to make us believe we have control, influence, or impact on the climate when it is obvious to the rest of us that we—the human race—have none.
In the past nearly two decades we have all be experiencing not a warning, but a cooling of planet Earth. It has nothing to do with us and everything to do with the Sun that has been in a low cycle of radiation—less heat!
A friend alerted me to an article in the August 22nd edition of the New Republic, a famously liberal magazine. “Global Warming Is Just One of Many Environmental Threats That Dema… is the title of Amartya Sen’s article. He is a Nobel laureate in economics, a winner of the National Humanities Medal, an author, and teaches at Harvard University.
There were two immediate red flags that caught my attention. First was that he is an economist and the second was that he was writing about “global warming” as of it was happening.
In early September I had written about another economist who had an opinion published in The Wall Street Journal. It was ludicrous in terms of his complete lack of even the most basic science he was either addressing or ignoring as he too warned of horrid environmental portents to come. Economists should stick to economics.
If you suffer from insomnia or have a fondness for reading sentences filled with words rarely used in common communication, you will find that Sen’s article will either put you to sleep or, more likely, give you a migraine headache. The article is an insufferable platform for him to demonstrate his Nobel certified intellectual brilliance, while possessing very little understanding of science or what we ordinary people call common sense.
“Our global environment has many problems. If the high volume of carbon emission is one, the low level of intellectual engagement with some of the major environmental challenges is surely another.” That’s how Sen began his article and, in the very first sentence, he reveals his ignorance by referring to “carbon emissions” instead of “carbon dioxide” (CO2) emissions.
The latter is a so-called “greenhouse” gas that the Greens keep telling us is trapping huge amounts of heat in the Earth’s atmosphere that will surely kill us all. CO2 is about 0.04% of the entire atmosphere, the least of the gases of which it is composed. It doesn’t trap heat, but it does provide the “food” that all vegetation requires to grow. We carbon-based humans exhale CO2 after we breathe in oxygen. It is part of the natural cycle of life between animals and the vegetation that releases oxygen; a perfect balance of nature.
Suffice to say that Sen’s very lengthy article is typical of the eco-intellectual disdain for virtually any form of energy to serve humanity except for the two least reliable, wind and solar energy. There’s a reason why mankind turned to coal, oil and natural gas. It was vastly abundant and released large amounts of energy for transportation and other benefits that include the production of electricity.
There was a time not that long ago when people used whale oil to light their homes. And wood was used to heat them. Walt Whitman, a famed poet who lived in Lincoln’s time, never turned on an electrical switch in his life. It didn’t exist 150 years ago. There were no autos, no telephones, et cetera. If you define a generation as 25 years, that’s only six generations ago. And Sen wants us to abandon “fossil fuels” because he fears “the dangers of global pollution from fossil fuels…”
He’s no fan of nuclear power either. (I guess we should all go back to whale oil, only we won’t because we love the whales.) “There are at least five different kinds of externalities that add significantly to the social costs of nuclear power” writes Sen, but who else refers to “externalities” of nuclear power? Okay, why not just say there have been two bad accidents, Chernobyl and Fukushima, and leave it at that. That still leaves a lot of safely performing nuclear plants here and worldwide.
We do not live in a world without risk or trade-offs. For lack of enough pipelines, a lot of oil is being transported by rail and there have been accidents. Around the world there are coal mining accidents. Even solar farms literally sizzle birds to death that fly over them and wind turbines chop them into little pieces.
Mother Nature does not care what happens to us when she conjures up a volcanic eruption, a flood, a wildfire, a hurricane or blizzard.
Humans have learned to either flee these things or wait them out in the safety of their homes. That’s what modern life is all about and it is a hundred times better than in the past when people were lucky to live to the age of sixty. Many died much younger from plagues of disease and we are watching that occur with Ebola in Africa. Even simple injuries caused death a scant time ago.
“There are empirical gaps in our knowledge as well as analytical difficulties in dealing with the evaluation of uncertainty.” Huh? What? This is intellectual gobbledygook, a substitute for saying that much of the time we don’t know what the future holds.
We should know by now to accept the Earth, the Sun and the galaxy in which we live for what it is and stop bothering to embrace idiotic notions that we have any control or that we are causing so much “pollution” the Earth cannot exist much longer.
You know what we do with the mess of stuff we produce and throw away? We burn it or we bury it. We even recycle some of it.
This keeps archeologists busy as they examine the garbage our not-too-distant ancestors left behind in their caves. Thankfully, none of them were economists.

There’s nothing more trivial than the logo for a professional sports franchise. It’s nothing more than marketing material, and usually means not one thing to anyone outside of its own fan base. So, of course, a group of liberal lawyers decided that in their arrogant opinion, every single Native American ought to be upset, rather than mildly flattered, that a professional sports franchise would want to be identified with their people. Further, they decided, without invitation, that they would level an attack against the horror of that logo and name on behalf of the party who did not have the good sense to be sufficiently aggrieved prior to their having spoken up on their behalf. the result is beautiful, since no one really cares to come out in defense, seeing as how the name Redskins and the accompanying logo only matter to those who make up the fan base, winning a national debate becomes much easier when the debate is one sided. Truly, under normal circumstances, I couldn’t care less about what a Football team from Washington D.C. calls itself. Times are changed though, and I recognize a larger picture forming here.
This is about societal control, over every aspect of our lives. I used to be a pick your battles kind of guy, but not any more. Liberals must be fought and defeated at every instance of their trying to inflict their control over us. There is not one positive thing that they’ve ever contributed to anything, and like any parasite, they’ll eventually end up killing the host, which for the purpose of our discussion, is every productive member of our society, those who work and pay taxes.
Until this year, I could not have cared less about the name, Washington Redskins. Now, I am a Redskins fan, and wish for them to win the Super Bowl. I love that name, only because liberals want it changed. This is the very same assault that has seen the Ten Commandments banished from centuries old town statues all across the fruited plains. It is the same assault that has seen the word Christmas replaced with Holiday Season, Merry Christmas replaced with Seasons Greetings, all while tax paying Americans get the privilege of funding works of art in which Crosses are submerged in jars of urine. It is invasive, and all encompassing. For those of you who believe for one moment that the Redskins organization will hold out for ever and defeat this intrusion into their rights as property owners, cute that you would believe this, I want you to take a look at the following picture.
When’s the last time you went grocery shopping and didn’t see this?
Rows of unused handicapped parking spots, anxiously awaiting those hordes of aggrieved handicapped drivers who actually didn’t give a crap, but some clever attorneys somewhere figured out a way to sue on their behalf and make money off of it. We’re now 25 plus years into this great kindness of pandering to people who are more offended with being pandered to than with not being able to park in the front row, and I have yet to see those spaces being even half way filled.
Set up a 501(c)3, start speaking out on a target group you feel should be aggrieved, claim to speak for them because they are too timid to speak for themselves, solicit donations, file law suits, and force America into diversity training, or sensitivity training, and wham, we’ve got a generation of people trained not to question any of it, and terrified of being sued should they step out of line. In this age of whining for fun and profit, there is no longer any aspect of our lives which is safe from being politicized. Speak out against any of it, and you’re a knuckle dragging bigoted homophobic racist insensitive jerk.
Even the food we eat, the very act of sitting down and enjoying a meal, has been tainted by the preening weenie crowd. GMO’s, over the top carb counters, politicization of gluten, (anything containing wheat,) meat, red meat, dairy products, hormone fear mongers, and a vibrant anti-sugar lobby have all started suing on behalf of the rest of us, too ignorant to realize that we should hate it all too. (Sugar by the way is the very first thing Millions of years of evolution has selected for us as a species to actually taste, lest anyone believe that this substance is truly the evil to be feared that the anti-sugar lobby claims it to be.) For those of you who will claim that this isn’t a left vs. right thing, take a gander at those who are pushing this agenda. Obama and Hillary voters, every last one of them, I’d bet my bottom dollar.
There’s a sameness to each and every one of these battles. Out of the blue, very vocal whining begins, money is raised, politicians begin beating their chests, more money is raised, law suits are filed, and another piece of our freedom is surrendered, along with another piece of our will to do or say anything about it. There is a price to be paid for surrendering our language, and that price is our Constitutional Freedom. Just because we are paying slowly does not mean that we will not give it all up as payment in full for our foolish disregard for what is happening. About 35 years ago, a friend told me that America was no longer a free nation, and I laughed at him.

>Sorry Al! I know you IMAGINE yourself the inventor of the internet and I know you invented the Church of Global warming. I also know you don’t really care that your big LIE has been proven to be a fantasy because you are laughing all the way to the bank. If there were any justice in the world (HUGE IF) you would be convicted of global fraud and conspiracy and spend the rest of you miserable life in a cell with the heat turned up to 95 degrees.<
This is a very trying time for global warming fanatics. Their faith is being tested more and more. How bad do their fake science and phony predictions of doom have to get for their faith to be shaken? Only time will tell. Prophet Gore was sure that by now the Arctic ice would all be melted. But, unfortunately for him, the ice grew thicker. Gore was conveniently “not available” for comment. But his followers still believed. Likewise, for years, global warming believers have tried raising awareness about the coming increase in hurricanes, tornadoes, and wildfires. And the increase has everything to do with our record carbon emissions. Never mind the fact that hurricanes are at a 30-year low. And something similar can be said about wildfires, despite Obama’s “science” advisor stating that global warming “has been making the fire season in the United States longer and, on average, more intense.” Here’s the Washington Times:
This year’s below-average wildfire season comes as welcome news for Westerners, but it’s also burning a hole in the environmentalist narrative on climate change.
Although summer isn’t over, and fires are burning in California and Oregon, it has been a mild year in terms of the number of wildfires and acres burned, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.
The agency reports that 2.77 million acres have burned this year as of Sept. 5, a decline from the 3.9 million acres that had burned by the same date in 2013 and less than half the 10-year average of 6.2 million acres. The number of fires, 38,451, is also down considerably from the 10-year average of 56,278.
That reduction is even more impressive given that the Pacific Northwest was hit with an above-average wildfire season. In July Washington suffered the most destructive fire in its history, the Carlton Complex Fire, which burned 252,000 acres and destroyed 300 homes in the state’s north-central region.
So far the 2014 wildfire season is on pace to be the second-least destructive in the last decade, which could put a damper on the campaign to connect elevated carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere to an increase in extreme weather events, including wildfires.
What are the warmists going to do with this report? They’ll probably claim that the National Interagency Fire Center are a bunch of “science-deniers” who are paid off by the oil companies and the Koch brothers. That must be the case, because everyone knows that wildfires and hurricanes are on the rise, and the ice caps are melting. Despite what the evidence shows. Of course, to global warming fanatics, facts, reason, and evidence don’t matter.

On the home page of the Communist Party USA it says “A better and peaceful world is possible—a world where people and nature come before profits. That’s socialism. That’s our vision. We are the Communist Party USA.”
No, it’s not Socialism which is a watered down version of Communism. Real Communism is the kind that was practiced in the former Soviet Union. It can be found in Cuba and North Korea where the state controls all power and property,and the people have none.
Modified versions exist in China, Russia, Venezuela, and other nations where some aspects of Capitalism are maintained for the sake of their economies. In the West Socialism was incorporated by both the U.S. and Great Britain, and other nations via various social welfare programs.
Capitalism is about profits, innovation, entrepreneurship, and investment. It is about the freedom to acquire wealth. It emphasizes work, not welfare. It is the reason America has a dynamic economic system—when it is permitted to prosper, free from federal interference.
In America, conservatives have always been acutely aware of Communism, but the 47% who still approve of Barack Obama and those who are members of the Democratic Party are the dupes of those whose quest for tyrannical power permits them to tell the most appalling lies, particularly about Republicans.
The Democratic Party is so politically corrupt and devoid of moral standards that it is currently engaged in seeking to harm potential Republican presidential candidates with an utterly bogus indictment of Texas Governor Perry and the slanders leveled against New Jersey Governor Christie. It is a tactic of those who fear a loss at the ballot box.
It is the Democratic Party and its elected officials that have advanced the global warming hoax, now called climate change and the CPUSA website refers to the “Accumulation of greenhouse gases (as) a ‘planetary emergency’” This is what both the President and the Secretary of State are saying, but there has been no warming on a planet that is now 17 years into a cooling cycle.
As for those “greenhouse” gases, nitrogen and oxygen are the most abundant in the atmosphere, followed by nothing more dangerous than water vapor! Carbon dioxide is a very minor gas at 0.04%. And most importantly, the Earth is not a greenhouse. When the Sun’s radiation is reduced due to its own natural cycles, it gets colder.
Tied to the climate change message is an agenda that includes Obama’s “war on coal” and his refusal to permit the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline from our neighbor Canada, among other measures to restrict access and use of America’s vast energy reserves. This is an attack on the nation’s economy in the name of “nature” or the “environment.”
The CPUSA wants “No new sanctions on Iran” and the administration’s negotiations with Iran to slow or end its nuclear weapons program have dropped some sanctions to get them to the table, but no one believes that Iran will stop because they are openly avowed enemies of America and Israel.
If you wanted to harm America, you would undermine its southern border so that thousands of illegal aliens could join the estimated eleven million already here. That is what President Obama has done and he is joined by former Democratic Majority Speaker Nancy Pelosi who said of the illegals, “We are all Americans.” No, they are not.
The chair of the Democratic National Committee, Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, continues to push for amnesty for illegal aliens saying “It isn’t about politics at all. They (illegal aliens) essentially have become the backbone of the economy.” The Center for Immigration Studies has documented the many jobs that have gone to illegal aliens, leaving native-born and naturalized U.S. citizens with fewer employment opportunities.
In July Gallup reported that “With thousands of undocumented immigrant minors crossing the nation’s southern border in recent months, the percentage of Americans citing immigration as the top problem has surged to 17% this month, up from 5% in June, and the highest seen since 2006. As a result, immigration now virtually ties ‘dissatisfaction with government’ at 16%, as the primary issue Americans think of when asked to name the country’s top problems.”
The Affordable Patient Care Act—Obamacare—is the perfect example of Socialism in its government control of what once was the world’s finest healthcare system and is being destroyed by a law for which only Democrats in Congress voted.
President Obama has illegally asserted more power than the Constitution grants the executive branch, unilaterally altering Obamacare. It is the reason the House of Representatives is suing him.
For several generations since the last century, Americans have been indoctrinated to accept an ever-growing central government, but even so an August Reason-Rupe survey poll found that fully 54% favored a smaller government providing fewer services. Just 18% of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing, while 75% disapprove.
Though education is never mentioned in the Constitution, we have a Department of Education and the same applies to the Department of Energy, both created by Jimmy Carter. A Nixon executive order brought about the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency that is masterminding an attack on private property along with the manufacturing, agricultural and energy sectors of the economy.
If one looks at the Democratic Party today, there is often scant difference between it and the self-professed Communist Party USA which twice endorsed the election of Barack Obama, a man whose father was a Communist, whose grandparents who helped raise him were Socialists, and who was mentored in his youth by a card-carrying member of the CPUSA.
We have a President who believes that the problems throughout the world have been caused by America. His disdain for the nation and the military that serves to protect it is on full display. And the Democratic Party twice chose him as its candidate.
If you want to see what Communism looks like, acts and says, watch and listen to the Democratic Party.

“Today, however, President Obama has taken the concept of discretion and so distorted it, and has taken the obligation of faithful enforcement and so rejected it, that his job as chief law enforcer has become one of incompetent madness or chief lawbreaker. Time after time, in areas as disparate as civil liberties, immigration, foreign affairs and health care, the president has demonstrated a propensity for rejecting his oath and doing damage to our fabric of liberty that cannot easily be undone by a successor.”
That is Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, a Fox News commentator, writing in the July 31 edition of The Washington Times.
Americans and many around the world are increasingly fearful of a President who has demonstrated no regard for the checks and balances of our incredible Constitution, the oldest in the world that still functions to protect individual rights and which sets forth the divisions between our legislative, judicial and executive departments of government.
Congress, however, will not impeach President Obama, but the House will sue him on the basis of just one of the many examples of his dictatorial use of executive orders to ignore the power of the legislative branch to pass laws he took an oath to enforce. He has unilaterally and illegally altered the Affordable Care Act 27 times, his signature legislature that former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, told us Congress had to pass “so we can find out what is in it.” No Republican member of Congress voted for this two-thousand-page-plus law, passed late in the evening of Christmas Eve, 2009.
The decision to impeach a President is essentially a political one and Republicans understand that the impeachment of President Obama would be interpreted by nearly half of the voters as an attack on a President they support. There have only been two impeachment actions in U.S. history and both have failed.
The nation is significantly divided regarding the President and Congress has been in gridlock as Democrats the Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, has refused to let more than 300 House bills sent to the Senate be debated and voted upon.
Suing the President has ample history. It is hardly “a stunt” as Democrats have labeled it. New York Democrat Louise Slaughter called it “preposterous”, but failed to mention that eight years earlier, in 2006, she was a plaintiff in a lawsuit filed by congressional Democrats against George W. Bush!
In a 1939 case, Coleman v Miller, the Supreme Court granted standing to members of the legislature to sue. Two years ago, four Democratic members of the House filed a suit against Vice President Biden in his capacity as head of the Senate, challenging as unconstitutional the filibuster. Other Democratic legislators had filed lawsuits claiming standing in 2001, in 2002, in
2006, and in 2007. The judiciary concluded their cases had little merit.
In a July 30 Wall Street Journal commentary, David B. Rivken who served in the Reagan and Bush administration’s Justice Department and the White House Counsel’s Office, and Elizabeth Price Foley, a constitutional law professor at Florida International University, wrote:
“These barriers between the branches are not formalities—they were designed to prevent the accumulation of excessive power in one branch. As the Supreme Court explained in New York v. United States (1992), the ‘Constitution protects us from our own best intentions. It divides power among sovereigns and among branches of government precisely so that we may resist the temptation to concentrate power in one location as an expedient solution to the crisis of the day.”
“Congress has the exclusive authority to make law because lawmaking requires pluralism, debate and compromise, the essence of representative government…Litigation in federal court is an indispensable way to protect all branches of government against encroachment on their authority,”
“If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” said President Obama. In April, A poll by PolitiFact of the Tampa Bay Times, revealed that 63%–two thirds—of respondents agreed that President Obama lies at least some of the time on important issues and an additional 20% said he lies every now and then. Only 15% believed the President is completely truthful. Democrats were 39% of the 1,021 registered voters polled. Republicans were 38% and independents were 20%,
The President has lied so routinely that this character flaw is likely to play a role in the forthcoming midterm elections on November 4. When you add in his lawlessness and his leadership failures that have created a far more dangerous and divided world, Americans are likely to vote for change in Congress.
That’s how democracy works and how our Constitutional system works. Suing the President is just one part of it.
