Gore: Global warming skeptics are this generation’s racists

One day climate change skeptics will be seen in the same negative light as racists, or so says former Vice President Al Gore.

In an interview with former advertising executive and Climate Reality Project collaborator Alex Bogusky broadcast on UStream on Friday, Gore explained that in order for climate change alarmists to succeed, they must “win the conversation” against those who deny there is a crisis.

“I remember, again going back to my early years in the South, when the Civil Rights revolution was unfolding, there were two things that really made an impression on me,” Gore said. “My generation watched Bull Connor turning the hose on civil rights demonstrators and we went, ‘Whoa! How gross and evil is that?’ My generation asked old people, ‘Explain to me again why it is okay to discriminate against people because their skin color is different?’ And when they couldn’t really answer that question with integrity, the change really started.”

The former vice president recalled how society succeeded in marginalizing racists and said climate change skeptics must be defeated in the same manner.

NYT’s Krugman Wishes the East-Coast Quake Was Worse in Order to Boost Economy

New York Time’s columnist Paul Krugman had this to say on the East Coast earthquake yesterday: “People on twitter might be joking, but in all seriousness, we would see a bigger boost in spending and hence economic growth had the earthquake done more damage.”

Just some more of the pure foolishness coming out of the liberal economic establishment. Remember, this is a man who…

British Newspaper claims Tea Party wants to ban books

So says the headline in The Guardian, but I’ve read the accompanying article three times, and I’m blowed if I can see where the headline comes from. The writer, Amanda Marcotte, says some disobliging things about the Tea Party (”they’re the most Bible-thumping-est part of the rightwing base as well as the most racist – these things tend to go together”), and then mentions that a high school in Missouri has banned a novel by Kurt Vonnegut. Banning books is, of course, always and everywhere a bad idea, but there is no suggestion that the Missouri parents are Tea Partiers or, indeed, part of any wider movement.

What interests me here is not one jejune article, but the almost desperate insistence by Lefties that the Tea Party is not, in fact, what it claims to be, viz a protest against big government. On both sides of the Atlantic, Tea Partiers are portrayed in broadcast and print media as a gaggle of stump-toothed Appalachianmountain men who can’t get used to the idea of a mixed race president. So far, though, the US electorate has refused to fall for it. To most American voters, the proposition that levels of taxation, spending and borrowing are too high seems remarkably moderate.

The book-banning trope is an old favourite. When Sarah Palin was chosen as a Vice-Presidential candidate, bogus emails about the books she had supposedly banned from Alaska’s libraries surged…

Video: Sheriffs refusing to obey Obama’s Unconstitutional Amnesty

Setting Cruise Control on the Road to Serfdom

by Rep. Tom McClintock, R-CA

Federal spending has ballooned 28 percent during the Obama presidency, while the government has amassed more debt than it acquired from the first day of George Washington’s administration to the last day of George H. W. Bush’s.

Our nation is racing toward a fiscal cliff. Yet, as Sen. Jim DeMint noted, instead of hitting the brakes, Congress and the president just set the cruise control. “The Budget Control Act of 2011” offers an object lesson in exactly the sort of empty compromise that has gotten our nation intoits present mess. Faced with the devastating consequences of unprecedented and unsustainable federal spending, both parties agreed on only one thing: to lock in that spending for at least the next two years. Bypassing the normal legislative process, the deal was written behind closed doors and dumped it into the laps of both houses under the threat that failing to pay the government’s bills would jeopardize the nation’s triple-A credit.

Unfortunately, the deal didn’t just pay our current bills – it gave the most spendthrift administration in history an open credit line to continue…

Video: Obama Admits He is “Unpatriotic”

By Ben Johnson

In 2008, candidate Obama had some harsh words about President George W. Bush’s fiscal policy:

The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up the national debt from 5 trillion for the first 42 presidents — number 43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.

Forget for a moment that during the Bush administration, the highest offense one could commit was to question the patriotism of the far-Left.

CBS News reported Monday:

The latest posting by the Treasury Department shows the national debt has now increased $4 trillion on President Obama’s watch.

The debt was $10.626 trillion on the day Mr. Obama took office. The latest calculation from Treasury shows the debt has now hit $14.639 trillion.

It’s the most rapid increase in the debt under any U.S. president.

Remember, Number-44 racked up what he deems an “unpatriotic” amount of debt in less than three years, while it took the free-spending George W. Bush administration eight years to compound an equivalent deficit.

By Obama’s reasoning, that means he must really hate this country.

Amnesty is Obama’s 2012 Campaign Plan

Talk about bad timing! For the third time in three years, President Obama is on a ten day vacation at tony Martha’s Vineyard. Disregarding soaring debt, high unemployment, home foreclosures, two costly wars, and a tumultuous stock market, Obama took wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha to hang out with the rich and famous on their 28-acre leased estate.

Before he left on vacation, Obama had a nasty surprise for unemployed Americans and citizens who believe in enforcing the nation’s laws. According to new rules issued by the Department of Homeland Security, illegal immigrants facing deportation will now be allowed to stay in the country indefinitely and get a work permit. Break the law; be rewarded with a job opportunity.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano presented the new policy as one that will allow the government to focus on deporting only illegal immigrants who are criminals or who pose a threat to national security. But given the broad nature of the Homeland Security edict, it’s clear that the true purpose is…

Iowa Passion

Sarah Palin’s political action committee has produced a two-minute video that is stirring up quite a buzz among political commentators. Whether the video, entitled “Iowa Passion,” actually proves that the former Alaska governor intends to enter the 2012 presidential contest or is instead just the latest installment in the ongoing “Palin plays the media like a fiddle” show is unclear.

Homofascist stalkers ruin lives via social media

In 1962, British author Anthony Burgess, who penned the classic “A Clockwork Orange,” published a lesser-known work entitled “The Wanting Seed,” another dystopian novel. This nightmare of fictionalized sociological development portrayed a nation in which religion was turned on its head in order to serve the State, homosexuality was encouraged as a population-control measure, heterosexuals were persecuted, and citizens were policed by brutal homosexuals who wore Gestapo-style uniforms and black lipstick.

I am personally opposed to the persecution of people who practice homosexuality, but neither do I believe they ought to be allowed to dictate the moral agenda in America, which some are definitely attempting to do, with the aid of the press and entertainment industry. It is also important to acknowledge that the political forces driving so-called “gay rights” causes don’t give a rat’s fanny about the civil rights of people who practice homosexuality; their overtures are simply more efforts to culturally balkanize America.

That said, one of the key arguments espoused by activists in this area maintains that those who possess traditional values suffer from an irrational fear of homosexuals – so let’s examine that claim.
