Voters Reject the Green Political Agenda – Tea Party Nation

Voters Reject the Green Political Agenda – Tea Party Nation.

By Alan Caruba  
What the midterm voters wanted was an economy that returned to its average 3.3% annual growth since the end of World War II. For six years of the Obama presidency, growth has all but disappeared. In 2013, as measured by the World Bank, it was barely 1.9% That translated as a lack of jobs, stagnant middle class income, and what Obama correctly called the Great Recession but could not end.  
Instead, in the lead-up to the midterm elections, he was still talking about “climate change” as the greatest threat to the nation and the world. For the voters, however, climate change wasn’t even on its list of priorities and with good reason, there is nothing anyone or any nation can or should do about the great forces of nature that determine what the Earth’s climate will be; starting with the Sun.  
The day after the elections two major environmental organizations, the Sierra Club and Friends of the Earth (FOE), wrote to their members. Their message was similar and their conclusions were absurd.  
“The election’s over and the planet lost,” wrote Erich Pica, FOE president. “The next Congress will be controlled by politicians elected with millions of dollars of the Koch brothers’ oil money—putting at risk the vital environmental protections we’ve fought so hard to achieve.” FOE has more than 2 million activists in 75 nations including the U.S.
 
What Pica does not mention in his letter is the estimated $85 million spent on six Senate races by what The Hill described as “the nation’s top environmental groups including the League of Conservation Voters, the Sierra Club, the Environmental Defense Fund, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and billionaire Tom Steyer’s NextGen Climate…” 
 
So Koch brother’s money is evil, but environmental organizations’ money is okay.  
As far as FOE’s Pica is concerned, “The truth is, President Obama hasn’t always done the right thing for the environment. He should have denied the Keystone Pipeline years ago, he should be rolling back unchecked fracking, and he should have taken stronger action on climate both at home and in international negotiations.”   
FOE could care less about the thousands of jobs the Keystone pipeline would create, plus the revenue from refining the oil it would transport to the Gulf States. As for fracking, it is not “unchecked.” It has to be done within the context of safety and environmental laws. As for the climate, China and India are just two nations increasing the use of coal to generate the electrical power they need to stimulate industrialization and improve the lives of their citizens by bringing power where he has never been before.  
Michael Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club, wrote that “Friends of Big Oil have taken control of the Senate” claiming they have “a 100-day action plan that reads like Big Oil’s wish list. Our opposition is about to have free reign to implement their anti-environment agenda. And approving the Keystone XL pipeline and destroying proposed environmental regulations top their list.”   
Oh, really? If the polls and elections are any indicator, a lot of Americans want to see the pipeline construction. As for the “anti-environment agenda”, that too is pure fiction. What Americans oppose is the forced closure of electricity generation plants in the name of a global warming that is not happening. Or a climate change over which no government has any role or control.  
To drive home his doom-and-gloom message, Brune added that “Rare species of wildlife already hanging by a threat will not survive this onslaught.”  Consider the absurdity of the claim that a Republican controlled Congress will be responsible for species extinction. For good measure, Brune, like the FOE, mentioned the Koch brothers, labeling them “big polluters.” Since when is drilling for oil and providing it to a world that runs on it “pollution”? It’s not. It’s progress that benefits humanity.  
Commenting on the elections, Dr. Jay Lehr, the science director of The Heartland Institute, a free market think tank, characterized them as “the repudiation of the President’s policies” and the nation’s political pundits all agree. Dr. Lehr called for “a bill to require the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline which has bipartisan support and has passed every environmental test.”  
Dr. Lehr called on Congress to “require the government to open up public lands to environmentally safe mineral and energy exploration as well as speed up approval of permits to drill and mine for resources on already approved lands. This will ensure our resource independence in both areas for centuries to come.”  
High on my list of priorities was reflected by Dr. Lehr’s call for Congress “to take charge of the funding of the Environmental Protection Agency which has gone rogue in efforts to impede virtually all economic development in our nation, and eventually phase out the EPA, passing on its responsibilities to a committee of the whole of our fifty state environmental protection agencies.”   
A November 6 article, “Climate change supporters suffer losses”, published in The Hill, reported that “Despite millions spent to make climate change a wedge issue during the midterms, environmentally friendly candidates didn’t fare well on Election Day.” Even so, the Sierra Club’s Brune was quoted saying, “Public support is solidly behind action to tackle the climate crisis. While we have lost friends in Congress, we are gaining them in the streets, as our movement grows stronger and broader.” NOT!  
Frances Beinecke, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council, echoed Brune’s empty boasts. “Whatever may have driven individual races, the American people want action on climate change.” NOT!  
As far as the environment is concerned, it is way down on the list of the voter’s priorities and the change of leadership and control of Congress reflects that. The voters don’t want a lot of vapid, idiotic talk of climate change and other environmental fantasies. They want jobs. They want an economy that will provide them. They want a better future for themselves and their children. And whether they know it or not, they want a conservative approach to government.

Weekend Edition: A Letter to the new Congress | thenationalpatriot.com.

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots on cprworldwidemedia.com

tnp eagleDear Republican Members of the United States 114th Congress,

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.

Got it?

Next…

Change the rules of engagement for our military and quit sending our men and women to win the hearts and minds of those who want us all dead.flg 1

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.

Obamacare…

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.

Do whatever needs to bflg 2e done to get Obamacare OUT of our lives.

Energy…

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!!!flg 3

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.

flg 4Make 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 flg 6IRS 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.

DO…NOT…COMPROMISE…with liberals.

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.

And finally…

Don’t lie to us. We’re in no mood to be lied to. Tell us the truth…not whFLG 8at 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 thecraig 1 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.

A Time To Clash: Why Obama Will Be Driven From Office | Doug Giles | #ClashDaily

A Time To Clash: Why Obama Will Be Driven From Office | Doug Giles | #ClashDaily.

20120717humorchoke

 

Shazam! I recently wrote of an impending “Democrat bloodbath” in the mid-term elections, but even I didn’t expect the wild and complete revolution that just took place across this land.  The full-blown blitzkrieg to victory for Republicans unfolded in so many places and on so many levels that one has to take a minute or so to reflect on what actually happened, why, and what is to follow.  My prediction is that Joe Biden will remain, like a drunken old motel night clerk, to run out the clock on this grisly abortion of an alleged presidency.  Obama will be gone before his second term is fulfilled.

 

The obstinately arrogant Obama is signalling a final showdown with Ted Cruz’ revitalized and reinforced Tea Party coalition over, among other things, Obama’s proposed executive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.  It is an ultimate-stakes game of political “chicken” which will force congress to remove a perversely delusional, power-mad president.

110

It’s easy to make such a bold and provocative prediction, especially when one is a relatively obscure writer and therefore will suffer no great loss of reputation, property, or prospects if one is wrong.  However, I find the forecast reasonable, and have reasoned it out.  Through his continued lawlessness, Obama will flippantly dare congress to impeach him, and despite not really wanting to do it, they will have to.

 

A reporter’s question to Obama on the day after the electoral slaughter stands out as telling.  CNN Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta pulled no punches, confronting Obama by saying:  “I know you don’t want to read the tea leaves, but it is a fact that your party rejected you in these midterms.  By and large, they did not want you out on the campaign trail in those key battleground states.  How do you account for that?”  Of course, in his rambling reply, and true to his pathologically dishonest character, Obama proceeded to pretend that any such thing happened.

Not finished

It did happen.  A vast plurality of Democrats themselves finally know that they have backed a smooth and excitingly novel yet incompetent, inferior criminal fraud all along, and not even their party’s usual amount of cheating and race-baiting could counter the flood of millions of rampaging Republicans who swarmed to the polls to turn the Democrats’ former messiah — via most of his accomplices running as proxies — into electoral roadkill.  Who knows just how many of the Democrat rank-and-file actually switched and voted Republican this time, but we can be certain that millions of them just stayed home; didn’t vote at all, either out of demoralized resignation, or, in the cases of millions of Obama’s young and minority base, oblivious ignorance and that an election was even taking place.

 

In the absence of months-long media frenzies, nationally televised debates, and classroom discussions about an impending presidential election, the average yahoo on the street really has no clue that midterm elections even occur.  Hence, those in the upper IQ ranges and having a seasoned awareness of politics are the ones who mainly turn out to vote in midterms (I admit that when I was much younger and much less interested in politics, I didn’t vote in midterm elections myself, that I can recall).

 

That dynamic is largely what gave Republicans the green light to now do whatever they see fit to do, in terms of stopping Obama’s anti-American lawlessness and subversion.  They now have the power to utterly thwart Obama.  They must use it, because he will leave them little choice.  They cannot fool themselves nor the country into thinking Obama is interested in cooperation.  They should have learned that from the way Obamacare was violently rammed down the country’s throats.

 

Obama, being an “all-in” radical ideologue of the type described in social philosopher Eric Hoffer’s book The True Believer,has telegraphed his radical intentions since day one.  He has succeeded in pushing through on many of them.  He shows no signs of relenting now.  As notoriously quoted in the title of Hillary Rodham’s senior thesis at Wellesley College, adherents (as we know Obama to be one) of Saul Alinsky’s radical left-wing “community organizing” principles believe, in their politics, “There Is Only The Fight.” 

Image

For Obama, despite an electoral revolution and full-blown rejection of him and his policies, there is no new spirit of kumbayah reconciliation and working things out with Republicans.  There is only the fight.

 

Lately, Obama has repeated again and again his plans to try to enact amnesty for millions and millions of illegal aliens by executive fiat, ignoring congress and the will of the people.  Americans are overwhelmingly against wholesale amnesty for illegals, executive or legislative.  But Obama sees this as perhaps his last chance to finish the job of wrecking America as we once knew America, on behalf of those he sees as deserving of the spoils.  As he has shown us over and over and over again, Obama does not care one bit about finding compromise with opponents within the legal framework of the Constitution.  Republican statesmen in general have expressed their reluctance to initiate impeachment against him, for reasons both stated and unstated, and that fact only helps fuel his belligerent defiance.  However, key players have gone on record saying that they’ll do it if they must.  My declaration is that the ISIS Apologist-in-Chief and Reconquistador-in-Chief Obama, despite refusing to know his place in the new political equation, and even though many others speak as if it’s time for Republicans to play nicey-nicey with him and with his largely unrepentant fixers to “get things done,” is finished.  He will provoke his own end.  He’s been given far too much leeway already, anyhow.  It’s just a matter of time, and of procedural ugliness, until he is removed.  Once that happens, Ted Cruz’ and Trey Gowdy’s ad-hoc coalition government of allies and ambivalent RINO figureheads will be able to at least macro-manage the addled whackjob Biden until January of 2017.  John Boehner and Mitch McConnell, if they remain the nominal leaders of their respective legislative bodies will merely be dragged along.  We all know Ted Cruz is the real president of the United States.

 

Whether Obama’s ouster will happen by his own sudden resignation in the face of impending impeachment (as with Richard Nixon), or will result from formal impeachment and conviction, I cannot say.  I do think, however, that Obama will be driven out by those whose job it is to remedy his high crimes and misdemeanors.  He will be removed like a cancerous tumor, because he will continue to act as he has thus far — according to his nature.

The Lies Phony Climate Experts Tell – Tea Party Nation

The Lies Phony Climate Experts Tell – Tea Party Nation.

By Alan Carubaweather

 

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.

 endthelie

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.

Obama’s Amnesty Travesty – Tea Party Nation

Obama’s Amnesty Travesty – Tea Party Nation.

By Alan Caruba

 

People really need to read the U.S. Constitution. It says, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.”

 

The Constitution makes no reference whatever to executive orders (EO). George Washington started the practice mostly because he had to. Traditionally executive orders have been treated by Congress as having the legal status of legislation, but only insofar as they apply to the management of how the government operates.

 

The Constitution makes it quite clear that the President has no power to enact laws, but as long as an EO does not unilaterally alter or negate existing legislation or run counter to the Constitution Congress usually accords it legitimacy. Those that do not honor the separation of powers have been struck down by the courts or by legislation that opposed them.

 

As is widely rumored and reported, if President Obama does attempt to issue amnesty to illegal aliens he would be over-riding or altering existing immigration law. He does not have the power to do that.

 

Such an executive order would be immediately challenged in the courts and if power in the Senate passes to the Republicans in the midterm elections, Congress would oppose it. With an eye on the 2016 elections, incumbent Democrats might not be willing to go along with an Obama amnesty EO.

 

Recent polls all demonstrate opposition to amnesty. In a September Investors Business Daily/TIPP poll 73% of the public said that Obama should work with Congress on immigration reform. After the invasion of an estimated 150,000 young people and others from Guatemala and San Salvador earlier this year, comprehensive immigration reform went from 54% approval last year to 48%.

 

When word leaked that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency had requested bids on a minimum of four million blank work permits and green cards a year for the next five years, there was an outcry in political and immigration policy circles. “There aren’t enough federal employees from here to Pluto to do adequate background checks on 34 million,” said Bob Dane, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform.

 

In September, the Census Bureau released new data on the U.S. population finding that the nation’s immigrant population (legal and illegal) hit a record 41.3 million in July 2013, an increase of 1.4 million since July 2010. Since 2000, the immigrant population is up 10.2 million and double the number in 1990, nearly triple the number in 1980, and guadruple that in 1970, which it stood at 9.6 million.

 

 

It’s no secret President Obama has wanted to get as many immigrants as possible, especially those from south of the border, into America. He has winked at the laws that determine immigration and citizenship. In 2011 many believed he had “enacted” the Dream Act by EO, but he had not. His administration instead adopted a policy regarding the deportation of illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, granting them the option of applying for two-year work permits. Even conservatives could find some merit in this, allowing them to gain legal status and apply for citizenship.

 

The amnesty issue would play havoc prior to the November 4 midterm elections, so Obama will wait until after them to announce his intentions. I doubt he thinks an executive order will go unchallenged, but at that point it will not matter to him since he will not be running for reelection in 2016. His indifference to constitutional restraints on his power as President is well known.

 

On October 22 Iowa Rep. Steve King, a Republican, predicted Obama will “violate the Constitution, break the law and grant executive amnesty.”

 

“If the President takes this action,” said Rep. King, “ (that) he’s threatened to take we will have abandoned every pretext of the Constitution of the United States and if the American people take that setting down or lying down, then our constitutional republic has been destroyed.”

 

Rep. King is right, but the Obama EO will be challenged in the courts and in Congress. If that effort is opposed by Democrats in Congress, their midterm losses will barely rival what the 2016 election will hold for them.

Obama’s War on U.S. Energy – Tea Party Nation

Obama’s War on U.S. Energy – Tea Party Nation.

 

By Alan Caruba

 September 19th was an anniversary you did not read or hear about in the nation’s news media. It marked six years—2008—since the first permit application for the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline was submitted to the federal government. Can you imagine how many jobs its construction would have created during a period of recovery from the 2008 financial crisis? President Obama is universally credited with delaying it.

 Thomas Pyle, the president of the American Energy Alliance, pointed out that World War II, the construction of the Hoover Dam, and the Lewis and Clark Expedition all took place in less time. In a September Forbes article, he noted that “Earlier this year a Washington Post/ABC News poll found that 65 percent of Americans support building the pipeline, while only 22 percent oppose it. In Washington three-to-one margins are usually referred to as mandates.”

 In contrast, in March 2013 the then-Interior Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, boasted “In just over four years, we have advanced 17 wind, solar, and geothermal projects on our public lands.”  It is not these projects that Americans depend upon for energy. The opposite is a stark explanation why coal, oil, natural gas and nuclear energy remain the heart blood of the economy.

 The Daily Caller reported in July that the “U.S. Bureau of Land Management is currently sitting on a backlog of 3,500 applications that need approval to move forward on drilling for oil and natural gas on federal land,” just part of Obama’s war on U.S. energy.

 According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, fossil fuels met 82% of U.S. energy demand in 2013.

 Petroleum, primarily used for transportation, supplied 36% of the energy demand in 2013. Natural gas represented 27%. Coal represented 20% and generated almost 40% of all electricity. In the six years since Obama took office that is a loss of 10%!

 The much ballyhooed “renewable sources” of energy, justified by the false claim that carbon dioxide emissions are causing global warming or climate change, are a very small part of the nation’s power providers. Wind power represented 1.6% and solar power represented three-tenths of 1%! Hydropower supplied 2.6% making it the largest source of so-called renewable energy.

 Politically, it has been Democrats advocating renewable sources and siding with the President’s delay of the oil pipeline and the Environmental Protection Agency’s assault on coal-fired plants to produce electricity. By contrast, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives has been busy putting forth legislation to fix aspects of our energy problems and needs.

 Some of the bills that were introduced included H.R. 2728: The Protecting State’s Rights to Promote American Energy Security Act; H.R. 3: The Northern Route Approval Act (regarding the keystone XL Pipeline; H.R. 1900: The Natural Gas Pipeline Permitting Reform Act; H.R. 2201: The North American Energy Infrastructure Act; and H.R. 6: The Domestic Prosperity and Global Freedom Act, intended to expedite the export of liquefied natural gas to our allies around the world. The global market is growing at a colossal pace.

 These bills will likely all die in the U.S. Senate, controlled by the Democratic Party. The Nov 4 midterm elections can change that if enough Republicans are elected to gain control.

 It’s not just natural gas that is helping the economy improve. The Financial Times reported in late September that “The U.S. is overtaking Saudi Arabia to become the world’s largest producer of liquid petroleum, in a sign of how its booming oil production has reshaped the energy sector.” Why? “The U.S. industry has been transformed by the shale revolution, with advances in the techniques of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling enabling the exploitation of oilfields, particularly in Texas and North Dakota.”

 The only places you won’t find oil drilling are on federally controlled lands. The same holds for coal and natural gas.

 This is in keeping with a virtual war on U.S. energy waged from the White House. Consider what we have witnessed:

 # Obama has refused to let the Keystone XL pipeline be built.

 # Billions wasted on loans to renewable energy companies, many of which like Solyndra and Solar Trust of America went bankrupt.

 # Obama made electric cars like the Chevy Volt part of his energy policy, providing subsidies but their high cost and low mileage capacity has resulted in few sales.

 # Obama and the EPA advocated a cap-and-trade tax on greenhouse gas emissions when there has been no global warming for 19 years and carbon dioxide plays no role whatever in the Earth’s climate.

 # The Obama administration terminating the construction of a nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain in Nevada despite nearly $15 billion already spent on this necessary repository.

 These are just a few examples, but in the meantime, the U.S. still requires that a valuable food commodity, corn, be turned into ethanol, an automotive fuel additive, that (a) reduces the millage in every gallon and (b) increases its cost at the pump. As Seldon B. Graham, Jr., a longtime energy industry consultant and observer, notes that “Ethanol production peaked in 2011 at 6% of total oil demand.” Favoring replacing imported foreign oil with American oil, Graham says “Americans would have saved $64.7 billion on the oil price since 2009.”

 Americans are afflicted by a President and his administration that for political and environmental reasons are costing them trillions in needless, senseless energy costs, loans and subsidies, and efforts to impose laws that have no basis whatever in science.

Blood on Obama’s hands – Tea Party Nation

Blood on Obama’s hands – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Obama lied, Americans died.

 

In this case, the Americans were two California Sheriff’s Deputies.  Barack Obama lies.  We know he lies about everything but he tells us the border is secure while he ignores the laws, refuses to deport criminal illegal aliens and plans to release even more of them into America.

 

From the Blaze:

 

The man suspected of killing two sheriff’s deputies during a shooting rampage in Northern California was deported twice and has a drug conviction, federal authorities said.

 A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman said Saturday fingerprints of the suspected shooter confirm he was first deported to Mexico in 1997 after being convicted in Arizona for drug possession. He was arrested and repatriated to Mexico again in 2001.

Sacramento County sheriff’s authorities said the suspect identified himself as 34-year-old Marcelo Marquez of Salt Lake City. However, federal officials said his fingerprints match the biometric records for a Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte.

Does it come as a shock to anyone that when Obama doesn’t secure the borders, criminals come to America?

 

Two real Americans are dead because of Obama. These are not the only ones but this was news that could not be ignored.

 

How many Americans have to die before the American people start demanding justice?

 

When is the Republican Party going to quit shilling for big business and start standing up for real Americans?

The blood from these two slain Deputies is on the hands of Barack Obama.

Liberals Have the MAD COW Over Ebola.

Craig Andresen

By Craig Andresen

COW 1It was bound to happen.

Sooner or later, the proof that liberals suffer from mad cow disease would surface and, now we have it.

Ebola.

On Friday, the Dictator did what any left thinking ass hat would do to ease people’s undue panic over Ebola.

He named an EBOLA CZAR because, as everybody is aware, Czars have a long history of fixing things.

So…who IS our czar savior from the rampaging wild Ebolas?

Why…it’s none other than the FIRST person anybody would THINK of for such an important position. It’s the name that virtually LEAPS to mind when our health is at risk.

Ron Klain of course.

Ron Klain…oh come on…KLAIN…RON KLAIN!!!

I know what you’re wondering. Just who in THE hell is RON…FRIGGIN’ KLAIN??? He’s an…ummmmm…attorney. Naturally…but not just ANY garden variety ambulance chaser…oh NO…THIS Ron Klain used to be the chief of staff for…

AL ‘CLIMATE CHANGE, GLOBAL WARMING’ GORE and if ya can’t trust your health to the guy who gave great advice to a hypocritical IDIOT…who CAN ya trust?COW 2

Now, to be fair, Klain’s resume goes a little further than advising ol’ huff and blow.

HE WAS ALSO THE CHIEF OF STAFF TO EVERYBODY’S FAVORITE POSTER BOY FOR CRANIAL-RECTAL SYNDROME…

JOE “BIG F-ING DEAL” BIDEN!!!

The regime is touting this new position as…the nation’s “Ebola response coordinator.” NOW COME ON, don’t be such a cynic…if as a nation, we are about to come down with a severe case of EXPLOSIVE EBOLARIA…(California being the exiting orifice) don’t you think it’s important to have an ATTORNEY in charge?

According to the Dictator himself“It may make sense for us to have one person … so that after this initial surge of activity we can have a more regular process just to make sure we are crossing all the Ts and dotting all the Is.”

Apparently, Klain will be putting the “CONTRACT” in contracting Ebola.

None of this makes any sense…an attorney who only answers to the Dictator…overseeing a health risk situation rather than someone with…oh, I don’t know…a MEDICAL DEGREE…until you stop to ponder that this legal boll weevil is more apt to PROTECT OBAMA FROM A LAWSUIT COW 3stemming from a stealth jihad mandated wild Ebola stampede than to protect YOU from virus encrusted EBOLA POOP TORPEDOS!!!

And besides…Ron Klain IS the dude who assisted with the implementation of the OBAMA stimulus package of 2009 and was up to eyeballs in SOLYNDRA!!!

Dear God, we’ve gone from Cash for Clunkers to  Moratoriums on Vomitoriums.

In case you haven’t been keeping score on the marauding Ebolas and the Obama regime’s response to them…allow me to bring you up to speed.

Obama’s CDC knothead claims that were we to stop any and all flights from Ebolland to OUR land, we would make the outbreak WORSE.

Huh?

Louie Faharacrap says the CIA invented Ebola to Kill Black people.

No Louie…MONKEYS spawned Ebola and black people in Africa wallowed in monkey fluids until THEY had Ebola.COW 4

And various liberal bottom feeders like Shiela Jackson Lee have been claiming that Ebola in OUR country is the fault of REPUBLICANS because THEY claim the EVIL REPUBLICANS are to blame for SEQUESTER which cut spending by the National Institute for Health resulting in us not having a vaccine for Ebola.

Ummmm…I suppose it was also the evil Republicans who insisted that more than a staggering $39 MILLION…of our taxpayer dollars that COULD have been used to create vaccines for Ebola was spent instead on such national pandemics as…obese lesbians, origami condoms, texting drunks.

No, I am NOT making this crap up and, thanks to an article from the Washington Free Beacon…we have a few DETAILS regarding just how the NIH has been spending our money when sequester wasn’t preventing them from doing so.

For instance, the agency has spent $2,873,440 trying to figure out why lesbians are obese, and $466,642 on why fat girls have a tough time getting dates. Another $2,075,611 was spent encouraging old people to join choirs.

Millions have gone to “text message interventions,” including a study where researchers sent texts to drunks at the bar to try to get them to stop drinking. The project received an additional grant this year, for a total of $674,590.

The NIH is also texting older African Americans with HIV ($372,460), HIV and drug users in rural areas ($693,000), HIV smokers ($763,519), pregnant smokers ($380,145), teen moms ($243,839), and meth addicts ($360,113). Text message interventions to try to get obese people to lose weight have cost $2,707,067.

Sooooo…according to the National Institute for Health…the greatest problem faced by Meth addicts, older black people with HIV, various drug cow 5abusers, smokers and teen age mothers is…having an ass the size of MOOchelle’s???

The NIH’s research on obesity has led to spending $2,101,064 on wearable insoles and buttons that can track a person’s weight, and $374,670 to put on fruit and vegetable puppet shows for preschoolers.

Here’s one of MY all-time favorites…The NIH spent $105,066…of U.S. TAXPAYER DOLLARS…following 16 schizophrenic LGBT CANADIANS around TORONTO for a study on their community experiences.

That seems like international stalking to me but what do I know?

And just to prove that the NIH is not solely fixated on fat, Canadian LESBIANS…they also dropped   $692,697 dollars of your money in an attempt to discover why, exactly, gay men in PERU…get syphilis.

No…I don’t see research and development of an Ebola vaccine on the list either but…we DO have stunning results from many of the OTHER high priority studies conducted by the NIH…

Fat lesbians are fat because they’re fat, not because they’re lesbians and apparently, the only fat girls not getting dates are a few fat STRAIGHT girls because, the lesbians seem to be doing fine.

The whole “text a drunk” to get them to stop drinking” thing didn’t work out because drunks kept asking whoever was texting them to meet them at a bar for a drink.

Texts to crack and meth addicts were answered by return texts asking the rhetorical question: “HAVE YOU EVER SCOW 6EEN A FAT METH ADDICT???”

With regard to the wearable insoles and buttons that can track a person’s weight…that was scrapped for elastic pants with a built in air raid siren in case of a fart attack and…the preschool crowd was too busy hacking into government documents on behalf of the NSA to be bothered to watch a FRUIT AND VEGETABLE PUPPET SHOW put on by the NIH.

Regrettably, the study from Peru was inconclusive as 6 out of 10 of the syphilitic yak-smackers wouldn’t stop singing Peruvian show tunes and the other 4 thought Obama was DREEEEEEAMY.

Anyway, the GOOD news in all of this is that you can now lay aside your concerns…the wild Ebolas are being held at bay.

NEVER FEAR…RON KLAIN…ATTORNEY TO THE CZARS IS HERE!!!!

If I were the Dictator…Barack Hussein OBOLA…I wouldn’t be SUING THE CRAP out of a disease spread via BODILY FLUIDS!!!

Climate Change Insanity – Tea Party Nation

Climate Change Insanity – Tea Party Nation.

 

By Alan Caruba

 

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.

The U.S. is Becoming Militarily Weaker – Tea Party Nation

The U.S. is Becoming Militarily Weaker – Tea Party Nation.

By Alan Caruba

 

The news that the U.S. Air Force, joined at long last by some of the Arab nations most threatened by the Islamic State (ISIS), began bombing their headquarters and military sites in Syria was long overdue, but welcome. It took time because Obama had originally dismissed ISIS as a threat.

 

It no doubt took time to get Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia to team with the U.S., but missing from the action is Turkey that borders Syria and Egypt. Turkey has become increasingly Islamist, but appears determined to stay out of the war with ISIS. By initially refusing to provide arms to Egypt, Obama drove it into the waiting arms of the Soviet Union, but has since reversed its policy and is seeking to woe Egypt back as an ally.

 

In a September 23rd column, Bret Stephens of The Wall Street Journal opined that “…every President gets things wrong. Mr. Obama is not exceptional in those respects. Where he stands apart is in his combination of ideological rigidity and fathomless ignorance. What does the President know? The simple answer, and maybe the truest, is: not a lot.”

 

Obama’s combination of ideology and ignorance is analyzed in an extraordinary book by Douglas E. Schoen and Melik Kaylan, “The Russia-China Axis: The New Cold War and America’s Crisis of Leadership.” It provides a fact-filled look at his failure to provide leadership to a nation that other nations have looked to for leadership and protection since the end of World War II.

 

Indeed, in addition to the ISIS videos of Americans and others being beheaded, it has taken the outspoken criticism of retired U.S. generals to mobilize public opinion to support a return to the battlefield. It is a battlefield that Obama has fled at every opportunity, pulling out all of our troops from Iraq and planning to do the same in Afghanistan.

 

In the September 14th issue of Defense News, General John Michael Loh, retired, a former Air Force vice chief of state and Air Combat Command commander, said, “ The right solution is neither exclusively boots on the ground airpower. The right solution is a one-two punch: a massive air campaign followed by a ground force offensive to defeat ISIS. If executed the way airmen and soldiers have worked together in the past, most notably in Desert Storm, the result is not just a decisive victory, quickly and with few casualties, but the basis for deterrence of any ISIS-like movement in the future.”

 

“The Russia-China Axis” delves deep into the failure of both the Presidency and Congress to address the threats to our nation around the world. “As China and Russia beef up”, the authors note regarding our military expenditure, “Congress is set to cut nearly $1 trillion from the defense budget over the next ten years” and while the full brunt of those cuts is a ways off, the military is already taking it on the chin thanks to the cuts negotiated during the sequestration of January 2013.”

 

Citing the warnings of Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, “What he and others have found so far is alarming; impaired combat-troop readiness; inability to modernize equipment and weapons and technology systems; and the need, potentially, to slash as many as five of the Air Force’s tactical aircraft squadrons.”

 

“Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta warns that the effects of sequestration alone will leave the United States with our smallest ground fighting force since 1940, the smallest naval fleet since 1915, and the ‘smallest tactical fighter force in the history of the Air Force.’”

 

While the headlines of the strikes against Syrian ISIS locations are exciting, in addition to our Defense Secretaries, we need to pay heed to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Gen. Martin Dempsey, who has said, “We would go from being unquestionably powerful everywhere to being less visible globally and presenting less of an overmatch to our adversaries. And that would translate into a different deterrent calculus and potentially, therefore, increase the likelihood of conflict.”

 

While the U.S. cuts its defense spending, Russia and China have been increasing theirs. Moreover, while nuclear weapons can be found in nations like North Korea, a self-declared enemy of the U.S. Iran is intent on creating its own nuclear capability, the U.S. has not only reduced its nuclear arsenal (Obama wants no arsenal) and has entered into negotiations that no observer believes will result in any cessation of Iran’s intentions.

 

The authors of “The Russia-China Axis” warn that “The U.S. retreat from the nuclear playing field is not just apparent in offensive capabilities; the American missile-defense shield that protects our homeland and our European allies is gravely deficient as well.”

 

The authors assess that “America, worn down by a decade-plus of wars, has become inner-directed, even isolationist.” This is a repeat of history prior to and following World War I. Following World War II, America was the only nation with the power to hold off and wear down the former Soviet Union’s ambitions to spread communism worldwide. Under Vladimir Putin, Russia is seeking to regain its influence in Eastern Europe and has, of course, invaded and annexed Ukraine’s Crimea.

 

This has all happened while Obama has been President. He has already announced that the U.S. will not put “boots on the ground” in Iraq and will leave Afghanistan next year. Telling the enemy what you intend to do militarily is a profoundly stupid thing to do. And this is a President who has resisted even his closest advisors regarding the need for action.

 

Plainly said, we need to survive the last two years of Obama’s second term in office. We can do so to some degree if the Republican Party can gain control of the U.S. Senate and expand it in the House. The November midterm elections have never been more critical.
