Obama’s UN Speech: More forceful against Global Warming than dictators

Posted in Culture, Economy, Environment, Media, Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 25, 2009 by thedoyle

In addition to Obama’s self-absorbed speech in which he lauded the collective, knelt before dictators and stood up against a democratic Israel, Obama also warmed up the crowd for the main purpose of the waste of energy and resources that is the Global Warming…er Climate Change Summit. I have mentioned before I love how they changed the name to fear from Global Warming to Global Climate Change. The part of Obama’s speech on Climate Change was as filled with lies and fantasy as the rest of his speech on foreign policy.

Obama starts off with “The danger posed by climate change cannot be denied.”
Au contraire, I can deny it. Climate Change is a natural part of the planet. We have gotten warmer before and we have gotten colder before all without the help of SUV’s and humanity and the planet has survived it. The left’s fervor for the religion of Global Warming has them equating people like me with Holocaust deniers, demanding deniers be put into re-education camps, and drafting criminal charges for deniers, hell Obama hired the guy who helped draft those charges. For the zealots of Global Warming any dissent is dismissed, any evidence that Man isn’t the cause must come from oil companies or anti-“fill in the blank” scientists who should be ignored.

Nevermind the fact that AGW prophets seem to be missing their own evidence. From the article:
So the weather data that go into the historical climate records that are required to verify models of global warming aren’t the original records at all. Jones and Wigley, however, weren’t specific about what was done to which station in order to produce their record, which, according to the IPCC, showed a warming of 0.6° +/– 0.2°C in the 20th century.

Now begins the fun. Warwick Hughes, an Australian scientist, wondered where that “+/–” came from, so he politely wrote Phil Jones in early 2005, asking for the original data. Jones’s response to a fellow scientist attempting to replicate his work was, “We have 25 years or so invested in the work. Why should I make the data available to you, when your aim is to try and find something wrong with it?”

Reread that statement, for it is breathtaking in its anti-scientific thrust. In fact, the entire purpose of replication is to “try and find something wrong.” The ultimate objective of science is to do things so well that, indeed, nothing is wrong.

I really can’t stress reading that article enough, and it isn’t the only place that apparently those who claim “the debate is over” and it “cannot be denied” seem to want to keep info to themselves:
“If they had evidence of their Global Warming claims surely world leaders would show it to the world. Yet the UN still haven’t replied to the letter from ‘The gang of 13’ scientists in July 2008 asking for simple evidence of the UN claims on Global Warming – http://www.tech-know.eu/uploads/Letter_UN_Sec_Gen_Ban_Ki-moon.pdf.

So what is the data, I hear you ask. Obviously the IPCC has put out models before, so let’s look at if the data holds up from what they did put out. Seems that the predictions don’t hold up, but the AGW zealots will tell you the debate is over. If its over its only because the AGW zealots are pulling a Miracle Max impression, “I’m not listening”

Back to the Zealot-in-Chief’s UN speech:
“Land that human beings have lived on for millennia will disappear. Future generations will look back and wonder why we refused to act”
Um, if the planet will eat us alive and there’s drought, famine and loss of land…who are these future generations he’s talking about? I’ll leave that one alone for now.

This to me is the crux of what was wrong with what he said:
“While we must acknowledge the need for differentiated responses, any effort to curb carbon emissions must include the fast-growing carbon emitters who can do more to reduce their air pollution without inhibiting growth. And any effort that fails to help the poorest nations both adapt to the problems that climate change have already wrought and help them travel a path of clean development simply will not work.”
This has been a problem with the prophets of AGW, they believe in conversion by the sword and it is developing nations who are the ones to suffer under the Holy Gorean Church. Third World Countries often have plenty of resources they could use to improve their standard of living but they are blackmailed by Gaia’s soldiers into a worse existence all for mother earth, well actually its for allowing Gaia’s soldiers to pat themselves on the back while they do whatever they damn well please. Hypocrites.

Obama’s fantasy aside and even ignoring his Energy Secretary’s foolish and patronizing admonishment of US Citizens the fact is these nitwits truly believe the planet will kill us in a few years. The truly scary thing is they are creating laws that will not only affect business but effect every single person and all under the rubric of “for your own good.”

But will it really be good? Spain recently put out a report that its “Green Jobs” hurt its economy, that report was blasted by the Left, who once again did their Miracle Max impression. Obama tried to calm fears that environmental laws won’t affect jobs. Former President Bill Clinton appears to have broken orthodoxy and admitted the report from Spain is true. Of course like the Global Warming Data, they also won’t release the audio.

Besides changing words to make their hysteria more hysterical, Gaia’s true believers also make sure news stories fit their storyline no matter what the facts and they ignore any chance of an explanation other than evil Man and those evil SUVs made by evil business. Of course if that giant ball of light and heat 93 million miles away is in fact beginning to cool and if it does in fact create a period of cooling, won’t those who worship at the alter of the Goracle be embarrassed?
No of course they won’t be, it will be like any other mystic in the pages of the Weekly World News or Inquirer who predict the end of the world and then when the date passes they claim we were saved at the last minute. They will go back to the claims of the 70’s that we are heading towards another ice age and have to pass sweeping laws to control everyone’s lives in order to save the planet and that we have only months to do or else.

Now that I am done mocking and pointing out the dangers of these hypocrites let me say something that needs to be said, I would like a cleaner planet. Clean water and clean air do matter to me, but funny enough I would like to see useful, directed and effective rules put in place. Rules that don’t destroy our economy, rules that don’t keep Third World Countries poor, rules that don’t require a huge expansion of government into citizens private lives all for the idea that we can “stop climate change.” The hubris required in such a belief that we can stop something that has happened for hundreds of millions of years is staggering. But to Gaia’s religious zealots such belief is commonplace and they are ready to martyr everyone else except themselves.

Obama’s UN Speech filled with Lies and Fantasy.

Posted in Culture, Environment, Media, Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 24, 2009 by thedoyle

I watched the entire speech yesterday because I am a masochist. NRO posted a transcript. Obama began lying in the second sentence and it didn’t stop till the end.

“I come before you humbled by the responsibility that the American people have placed upon me, mindful of the enormous challenges of our moment in history, and determined to act boldly and collectively on behalf of justice and prosperity at home and abroad.”
HA. “Humbled” my ass, he’s one of the most arrogant, self-absorbed, self-obsessed people I have seen in the political scene in this country EVER. “Determined to act boldly” except in the case of Iran’s election where he sat back and said let’s wait and see, it’s none of our business they need to work this out on their own so that he wouldn’t wreck a chance to grovel to Achmadinnerjacket at a later date.
The only true statement in that sentence was his claim he would act “collectively.” All socialists believe in the collective, the superiority of the group over the individual. Obama’s collectivism was on full display there for sure.

“I have been in office for just nine months — though some days it seems a lot longer.”

It certainly does seem longer to me, it seems like this nitwit has been trying to screw up our country for years with his socialist view.

“I am well aware of the expectations that accompany my presidency around the world.”
WTF?? Who cares about the expectations of the rest of the world, he doesn’t work for them he works for us. This is a prime example of what is wrong with Obama and the left in general, their constant obsession with how the world sees us. They are like high school girls worried about whether the cool kids will like them. The rest of the world will never like us, they never have. The left loved to talk about how it was all George W. Bush’s fault that the world didn’t like us, which was pure bullshit. The world never liked us, no one likes the big dog, they all want to be the big dog or tear him down.

“These expectations are not about me.”
For someone who says its “not about me” the speech is filled with “me” and “I” hell, he managed to refer to himself 4 times in those last three sentences. Like I said self-absorbed and self-obsessed.

“Rather, they are rooted, I believe, in a discontent with a status quo that has allowed us to be increasingly defined by our differences, and outpaced by our problems. But they are also rooted in hope — the hope that real change is possible, and the hope that America will be a leader in bringing about such change.”
Wow he actually managed to work in his campaign slogan…twice, into a speech before the world. Bravo, he has brought self-absorption and cheap politicking to a whole new level.

“I took office at a time when many around the world had come to view America with skepticism and distrust.”
Again, see above the world had done that since George Washington not just since George W. Bush.

“Part of this was due to misperceptions and misinformation about my country.”
And who helped spread that misinformation and who helped create those “misperceptions?” Oh that’s right it was the left, people like John Kerry going overseas and badmouthing our country and badmouthing its soldiers. People like Dick Durbin who called the guards at Gitmo, Nazis. People like Obama himself who went on a world wide apology tour after taking office solidifying every bad idea ever held. I could give tons of examples of just the left’s politicians let alone leftist nitwits like Michael Moore, George Clooney, the Dixie Chicks etc.

“Part of this was due to opposition to specific policies, and a belief that on certain critical issues, America has acted unilaterally, without regard for the interests of others.”
Of course Obama thinks this horse-crap is true In his mind, and the mind of leftists, only if the interests of others is more important than our own are our actions proper. If only our own interests are at stake we must then get approval from others to act. A suicidal thought pattern that John Kerry had suggested during his failed bid for President. An intelligent person knows that if our interests are at stake and the world is content to do nothing then they can sit there while we take action. Let them grumble all they want, they weren’t willing to do anything to help us they obviously don’t have the balls to do anything to oppose us.

“And this has fed an almost reflexive anti-Americanism, which too often has served as an excuse for collective inaction.”
More fantasy belief that the anti-Americanism is new and more collectivism on display.

“Now, like all of you, my responsibility is to act in the interest of my nation and my people, and I will never apologize for defending those interests.”
He won’t apologize for defending those interests but he went around apologizing for just about everything else, what a hypocrite, what a tool. Also, he refers to himself 4 times in one sentence, a new record. But it’s not about him.

“But it is my deeply held belief that in the year 2009 — more than at any point in human history — the interests of nations and peoples are shared.”
No, the interests of nations and people are NOT shared. I do not share the interests of Islamic jihadists who wish to impose Sharia Law and Islam on everyone on the globe, they do not share my interests in living my life as I see fit. I do not share the interests of socialists who wish to denigrate the individual, crushing him in the name of the collective. Socialists do not share my interest in the freedom to make a living and keep the fruits of my labors. I can’t quite tell if he was lying or fantasizing, it may be a combination of both. “A Bridge Too Far.” Caine and Hackman in the same movie. This is my thesis man! This is my closing argument! I CAN STOP WATCHING TV!

The rest of the speech is just as bad as the beginning was and I don’t have time to go thru it line by line mocking it all, so here is a round up of others who ripped it to shreds.

Paul Mirengoff correctly calls it sophomoric. I will admit my humor is too, but then I am not the President.

Mr. Mirengoff also notes the groveling Obama did

Scott Johnson of Powerline also comments on Obama’s ignorance and arrogance.

Anne Bayefsky gave National Review online her take on President Apology.

John Bolton, disliked by the UN and the left because he actually tried to work, takes apart our “post-American President”

Rich Lowry of NRO points out the naive view of Obama.

Brett D. Schaefer of NRO also points out the naive view.

Michael Ledeen of NRO argues against the naive view.

NRO posted the transcript of Charles Krauthammer’s take on the speech. “Between embarrassing and dangerous”

I will be posting tomorrow on the “Global Warming” portion of his speech tomorrow.

John Stossel is one of the few true Libertarian Journalists

Posted in Politics with tags , , , , , , , on November 13, 2008 by thedoyle

Stossel continues to impress me with his work. He is one of the few who actually keeps his Libertarian ideals. That’s hard to do sometimes when everyone only thinks of Liberals or Conservatives. His latest article is another one that needs to be read by everyone.

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2008/11/the_road_to_serfdom.html

“The “road to serfdom” is paved with such good intentions.”, Stossel writes. I was recently accused of being melodramtic by some frothing at the mouth Liberal for taking that idea to its end and saying the “the chains of slavery were clamped on to your wrists.” Some of us are just able to see further down the road.

This part is the one I have been harping on for months ever since Obama’s marxist-socialist ideal’s were exposed:

Obama promises:

“We will change the world … There is nothing we can’t do, nothing we can’t accomplish if we are unified”. …

Who is this “we” politicians always cite?

We can change the world for the better if “we” means hundreds of millions of free people pursuing their interests, inventing, building, parenting, helping.

But the politicians’ “we” is different. It means government. “We” will take your money by force and order you about. A democracy can become the tyranny of the majority. That’s no way to create prosperity. (emphasis mine)

Stossel is exactly right. Liberals only complain about government orders…when they’re not doing the ordering. Suddenly when they’re guy is in office a strong take charge President is just what this country ordered. Cause deep down they think they are safe from those orders. “A government policy to rob Peter to pay Paul can be assured of the support of Paul.” – George Bernard Shaw. In this case Liberals are Paul. It’s the rest of us that are Peter.
