Scientists Ask Obama To Prosecute Global Warming Skeptics

Leave a comment

This is from The Daily Caller. 

This does not surprise me in the least after all Obama turned The Gestapo aka The IRS loose on Conservatives.

unnamed

The science on global warming is settled, so settled that 20 climate scientists are asking President Barack Obama to prosecute people who disagree with them on the science behind man-made global warming.

Scientists from several universities and research centers even asked Obama to use the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) to prosecute groups that “have knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change, as a means to forestall America’s response to climate change.”

RICO was a law designed to take down organized crime syndicates, but scientists now want it to be used against scientists, activists and organizations that voice their disagreement with the so-called “consensus” on global warming. The scientists repeated claims made by environmentalists that groups, especially those with ties to fossil fuels, have engaged in a misinformation campaign to confuse the public on global warming.

“The actions of these organizations have been extensively documented in peer-reviewed academic research and in recent books,” the scientists wrote.

But these riled up academics aren’t the first to suggest using RICO to go after global warming skeptics. The idea was first put forward by Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, who argued using RICO was effective at taking down the tobacco industry.

“In 1999, the Justice Department filed a civil RICO lawsuit against the major tobacco companies… alleging that the companies ‘engaged in and executed — and continue to engage in and execute — a massive 50-year scheme to defraud the public, including consumers of cigarettes, in violation of RICO,’” Whitehouse wrote in the Washington Post in May.

Special: Americans Urged to Search Their Names Before Site Gets Taken Down
“We strongly endorse Senator Whitehouse’s call for a RICO investigation,” the scientists wrote to Obama. “The methods of these organizations are quite similar to those used earlier by the tobacco industry. A RICO investigation (1999 to 2006) played an important role in stopping the tobacco industry from continuing to deceive the American people about the dangers of smoking.”

“If corporations in the fossil fuel industry and their supporters are guilty of the misdeeds that have been documented in books and journal articles, it is imperative that these misdeeds be stopped as soon as possible so that America and the world can get on with the critically important business of finding effective ways to restabilize the Earth’s climate, before even more lasting damage is done,” the scientists added.
This year has been a trying one for global warming skeptics. Earlier this year, Democratic lawmakers began an investigation into scientists who disagreed with the White House’s stance on global warming. Many of these skeptical scientists were often cited by those critical of regulations to curb greenhouse gas emissions.

Arizona Democratic Rep. Raul Grijalva went after universities employing these researchers, which resulted in one expert being forced to get out of the field of climate research altogether.

“I am simply not initiating any new research or papers on the topic and I have ring-fenced my slowly diminishing blogging on the subject,” Dr. Roger Pielke Jr. of the University of Colorado wrote on his blog.

“Congressman Grijalva doesn’t have any evidence of any wrongdoing on my part, either ethical or legal, because there is none,” Pielke wrote. “He simply disagrees with the substance of my testimony – which is based on peer-reviewed research funded by the US taxpayer, and which also happens to be the consensus of the IPCC (despite Holdren’s incorrect views).”

The Wheel and Beer . . .

1 Comment

Hat Tip To Odie@Woodsterman.

 

The two most important events in all of history were 
the invention  of beer and the invention of the wheel… 

Beer  required grain and that was the  beginning of agriculture.
Neither  the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet,so  while our early humans were sitting around waiting  
for  them to be invented,

They just stayed close to the  brewery. 
That’s how villages were  formed.

The  wheel was invented to get man to the  beer.

These  two were the foundation of modern 
civilization and, together,were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:

1. Liberals.

2.  Conservatives.

Some  men spent their days tracking and killing animals 
to BBQ  at night while they were drinking beer.

This was the  beginning of what is known as the 
Conservative movement.

Other  men who were less skilled at hunting learned to 
live off  the conservatives by showing up for the nightly 
BBQ’s and  doing the sewing, fetching, and hairdressing. 
This was the  beginning of the Liberal movement.

Some  of these liberal men evolved into women. 
Others became  known as girlie-men.

Some noteworthy 
Liberal achievements  include the domestication of cats, 
the invention of group  therapy, group hugs, and the 
concept of democratic voting  to decide how to divide 
the meat and beer that  Conservatives provided.

Over  the years Conservatives came to be symbolized 
by the  largest, most powerful land animal on earth, 
the elephant.  Liberals are symbolized by the jackass 
for obvious  reasons.

Modern  Liberals like lite beer (with lime added), 
but most prefer  white wine or imported bottled water. 
They eat raw fish  but like their beef well done. Sushi, 
tofu, and French  food are standard Liberal fare. 
Another interesting  evolutionary side note: many 
Liberal women have higher  testosterone levels 
than their men.

Most  college professors, social workers, personal 
injury  attorneys, journalists, filmmakers in Hollywood, 
group  therapists and community organizers are Liberals. 
Liberals  meddled in our national pastime and invented the  designated hitter rule because it wasn’t fair to make the pitcher also bat.

Conservatives  drink real beer. They eat red meat and 
still provide for  their women. Conservatives are big 
game hunters, rodeo  cowboys, lumberjacks, construction 
workers, firemen,  medical doctors, police officers, engineers, corporate  executives, athletes, members of the military, airline  pilots, and generally anyone who works productively.   
Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives  who want to work for a living.

Liberals  produce little or nothing. They like to govern the  producers and decide what to do with the production.  
Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than  
Americans. That is why most of the Liberals remained in  
Europe when Conservatives were coming to America . 
They  crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a  business of trying to get more for  nothing.

Here  ends today’s lesson in world history.

It should be noted  that a Liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily  respond 
to this post.

A  Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the  absolute truth of this history that it will be shared  immediately to other true believers and to just piss off  more liberals.

And there you have it. Let your next action reveal your true self.

I’m going to have another  beer.

Charlie Daniels on America: ‘We Are Due a Day of Reckoning’

Leave a comment

This is from CNSNews.

Charlie Daniels is saying the same things that Conservatives have been saying about handouts for years.

God also said to care for the widows, orphans, elderly and the disabled.

Here is a quote from Paul in a letter to the Thessalonians,

  

2 Thessalonians 3:10King James Version (KJV)

10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

Charity – the act of giving money, food, or other kinds of help to people who are poor, sick.

Federal entitlements, regardless of whatever clever antonym or fancy bureaucratic name they go by are actually charity, or at least that is what they started out as.

I believe in charity, but sometimes I think I have a much different definition than many people, and definitely a different definition from the one the government operates on. However, what the government practices is not actually charity, but patronage.

Now put aside your politics, your political correctness, your automatic rhetorical responses and answer these questions honestly.

Is any able-bodied person entitled to spend their lives sponging on the federal or state dole while you work hard to make a living and pay the taxes that support them?

Does anybody have the right to bring children into this world and walk away without ever paying a cent for their support, leaving the cost of their upbringing to the taxpayers?

If your answers to the two above questions was no, then you should be as angry, disgusted and disillusioned as I am. I’m fed up with the bogus disability claims and men who father scores of children and are never held accountable for their welfare.

There are men who go through life carelessly fathering dozens of children who will never even know his name. They leave behind whole families of underprivileged kids who will never have a decent chance at life, raised in a hard scrabble, hand-to-mouth existence, in an environment where dodging bullets is a way of life and the local drug dealer is the most respected person in the neighborhood.

People say that we’ve gone so far into the entitlement direction that there is no way to rectify it, but actually, there is a very simple way to fix this problem.

To qualify for public assistance, the mother of the child should be required to identify the father, a simple task in this era of DNA testing. The father then either supports his children, all his children, or goes to jail until they all reach the age of majority.

If he has fathered multiple children, then he should have multiple jobs. No copouts, and no exceptions.

Just start this program, let the word get around and watch the birth rate of fatherless children fall like a brick.

There are some who draw a disability check from the government and then go out and participate in sports and other strenuous exercises, no more disabled than a racehorse.

That person – after medical exams to prove the sham – should be taken off assistance, spend a year in jail and be forced to pay back the money they’ve already been paid.

Drastic measures?

Absolutely, but things have gone so far that nothing less than drastic measures will ever turn it around.

There is an eventual price to pay for socialism and politicians who consider the federal treasury to be their own personal piggy bank to be used as additional campaign funds and public relations. They buy votes and good will for their party on any whimsical foolishness they can push through Congress.

Social Security funds should be identified, locked away and never allowed to be touched by profligate politicians.

Every time you buy a gallon of gas you are paying into a fund that is supposed to maintain the highways. But take it from one who spends around 125 nights a year up and down the highways of America, a lot of our interstates and federally maintained highways are like washboards with pot holes.

What happened to the highway money?

The truth of the matter is folks, our federal government officials, both parties included, have proven themselves incapable of handling public funds. They cannot police the double-dipping welfare cheats without the guts to face down any problem that could possibly cost them votes.

If Social Security had been handled by investing part of everybody’s assessments in the private sector, with the government forbidden to touch it, the program would be fat and solvent now, actually capable of sustaining a good lifestyle for retirees.

If the highway funds could actually be put into a lock box and honestly handled without political patronage and cronyism, our highways would be in perfect condition.

If the welfare and Medicare cheats were identified, prosecuted and jailed, that problem would soon go away.

We are fast coming down to having, for all practical purposes, a one party system in America. This party is neither Democrat or Republican, but a hybrid, socialist in policy and so big that bureaucracies are tripping all over each other. Stupid regulations cripple and alienate industry, and the entitlement roles and the national debt grows by leaps and bounds.

We are due a day of reckoning.

And make no mistake about it, it’s coming.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem

God Bless America

Remember what Jesus said: ‘Goats on the left, sheep on the right’ (Matthew 25:33).
Jesus also told Peter that if he wanted to catch fish do it from the right side of the boat.   They did and filled the boat with fish.
John 21:6 (NIV) … He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.”
Origin of Left & Right…
I have often wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the “right”  and Liberals are called the “left”.
By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:    (NIV) – “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.”
Thus sayeth the Lord.   Amen.
It surely can’t get any simpler than that.

GOPissed OFF: Conservatives… It’s Time To Wreck The GOP Establishment

1 Comment

This is from Clash Daily.

This is a point I have been making for years.

Conservatives are not only at war with the Liberals we are in a battle for the Republican Party a fight we must win.

 

My friends, the political war has begun and we are not just battling the left – we are in battle with our own party. Do not give your money to the GOP, as they will use it against conservatives! It doesn’t matter if you are Team Cruz, Walker, Rand Paul or any other conservative; give directly to the candidate. We might fall under the party category of Republican, however, trust me when I say, that is the absolute only thing we have in common anymore.

The establishment hates conservatives because the GOP has sold out and bowed to the agenda. Ask yourself, with all of the promises from McConnell, McCain, Graham, etc… why do we still have Obamacare? Why do we have open borders and executive amnesty looming? Why is Boehner still Speaker of the House? Why are we negotiating with Iran? Why have they not stopped Hussein Obama’s spending? Why do radical Jihad terrorists have training camps on our own soil? It is all smoke and mirrors to pacify the minions and theatrics to buy time.

Why has no one brought impeachment charges for multiple treasonous crimes? Including the Bergdahl trade, Benghazi, and Fast and Furious. Promises, speeches, petitions and lawsuits; all to keep us busy and occupied while our great country is destroyed from within. We worked our asses off to take back the Senate and it has proven futile. The only way to save us now is to elect a constitutional conservative President in 2016.

My personal e-mail inbox is full of the GOP begging for money. They have even coerced Governor Walker into e-mailing on their behalf to beg for money. He has to be out of his mind to think they will use that money to support his run. They have chosen their man: Jeb Bush.

Every dime you give to the GOP will go towards electing Jeb Bush. I have heard unenlightened good friends call him a moderate Republican, but I lean towards Jeb being a liberal. If you want to know where he stands on the issues, look at his big donors: ProAmnesty, ProCommonCore, ProAbortion, and so on. Jeb Bush versus Hillary Clinton or Elizabeth Warren is a win/win for liberalism and goodbye to our freedoms.

Ask yourself how many more times we have to be lied to and slapped in the face? Case in point, when Texas Conservative Ted Cruz announced his run for the White House, GOP Republican Peter King immediately bashed him in the media. When Cruz filibustered Obamacare, he received absolutely no support from the establishment. As a matter of fact, several of them went to dinner with Hussein Obama that night.

One thing is for certain, the liberal left and the GOP are extremely fearful of a conservative constitutional candidate, as evident by their reaction to Cruz’s announcement. They can feel our momentum picking up and it will only get stronger, louder, more powerful. So now is the time for Americans to put up or shut up.

Make phone calls, pound the pavement, donate, and question everything and everyone. Scott Walker has secured voter ID for Wisconsin. What is your state doing? We must DEMAND voter ID, fair voting practices, and never relive the fraud of 2012. Never forget how they bused in illegals, did not get the ballots to our soldiers overseas, changed votes from Romney to Obama through voting machines, allowed Black Panthers to intimidate voters at the polls, and how votes were outsourced to a Soros company for tally. Not to mention, dead people voting, people voting multiple times and districts in Ohio reporting over a 100% turn out.

Too many great Americans have shed blood for us to lie down and give up our freedoms. One of my favorite Marine veteran’s kids bought him a countdown clock that shows to the exact second how much time is left before Hussein Obama leaves office. That clock is running down fast…..and the time to fight is now.

PRO-AMNESTY, PRO-GAY MARRIAGE, PRO-ABORTION DONORS FUELING JEB BUSH’S FUNDRAISING

Leave a comment

This is from Breitbarts Big Government.

Jeb Bush will be the reason Conservatives will stay home on election day 2016.

Jeb Bush will be the reason DemocRats will take the House,Senate and the presidency in 2016.

The Establishment Republicans do not care as long as they can be free of Conservatives.

 

Pro-amnesty, Pro-gay marriage, and pro-abortion donors are powering former Florida Governor Jeb Bush’s fundraising operation.

Bush, who is reportedly aiming to raise $100 million before he formally enters the race, will not give a speech at CPAC on Friday and instead participate in a question and answer session with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

“All too often we’re associated with being ‘anti’ everything,” Bush lectured CPAC in 2013. “Way too many people believe Republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-gay, anti-worker, and the list goes on.”

Bush is attracting plenty of donors and staffers who wholeheartedly agree with him on the GOP’s “problems.”

The former Florida governor, who has said that illegal immigration is an “act of love” and declared that he was “willing to lose the primary to win the general” presumably without conservative voters, has vowed to be his own man and not be tethered to the views of his political team or his brother, former President George W. Bush.

But money talks. And as conservatives like Richard Viguerie and Morton Blackwell have always said: personnel is policy. Though Bush’s father, George H.W. Bush, tried to bring in as many establishment Republican staffers as he could, Reagan’s brand of “bold” conservatism succeeded because of Reagan’s conservative lieutenants. Like father, like son, Bush seems intent on surrounding himself with advisers who care more about their standing in the Beltway and what the permanent political and media establishments think of them than conservatives.

Republicans told the left-wing BuzzFeed that Bush may be evolving on the gay marriage issue, and there is nothing but upside in his evolution when it comes to fundraising. The outlet detailed that Dave Kochel, Romney’s top Iowa strategist who is likely to be Bush’s national campaign manager and is one of his splashiest hires, is someone who has “grown increasingly convinced” that the GOP “was on the wrong side of the marriage debate, both morally and politically.” Some of Bush’s most prominent political operatives are also pro-gay marriage, as BuzzFeed notes:

Bush has hired Tim Miller, a star communications and research operative who is gay; longtime aide Sally Bradshaw, whose support for her pro-gay preacher recently showed up in a New York Times profile; and Mike Murphy, the veteran GOP consultant who joined other prominent Republicans in signing a 2013 brief calling on the Supreme Court to overturn California’s same-sex marriage ban, Proposition 8. What makes this band of operatives unique is not just that they support gay rights, but that many have made it their mission in the past to bring the party along with them.

With his team in place, Bush has attracted a wave of early support from many of the party’s most prominent gay rights advocates. Ken Mehlman, the former Republican National Committee chair who authored the Prop. 8 brief, has reportedly been introducing Bush to donors. At least a dozen of the brief’s 80 signatories have either endorsed him, donated to him, or gone to work for him. Tom Ridge, the former Homeland Security secretary who regularly preaches LGBT inclusion to his fellow Republicans, has declared himself an enthusiastic Bush-backer.

Miller, who worked for Sen. John McCain’s and Jon Huntsman’s presidential campaigns, and Murphy, who has been in and out of McCain’s orbit and relishes bashing “unwashed” working-class conservatives to liberal television hosts and elite Beltway denizens, are more than familiar with candidates who have run campaigns that showed nothing but disdain for conservatives who oppose illegal immigration and value traditional marriage and life.

According to the left-wing BuzzFeed, a “senior Republican fundraiser with close ties to several mega-donors said it is increasingly important for candidates to reject conservative dogmas on the marriage issue in order to get a hearing from big-dollar contributors.” And “many in the monied, moderate, corporate wing of the GOP are cheering the early hires as a sign that” Bush’s position on gay marriage may “evolve beyond his on-the-record statements.” Donors apparently have come to believe after recent fundraisers that Bush was “supportive at best” of gay marriage and “agnostic at worst.”

Like with his pro-amnesty views, there is “nothing but upside” for Bush to signal to donors that he may be evolving on gay marriage. As BuzzFeed points out, the “GOP donor class–heavily concentrated in secular metropolitan centers where the LGBT culture wars don’t rate–generally supports marriage equality, and finds pulpit-pounding activists embarrassing.”

And on the issue of amnesty for illegal immigrants, the GOP donor base and establishment finds the conservative base to be even more “embarrassing” than on the traditional marriage issue.

Top GOP donors, in a conference call organized by Grover Norquist, who has pushed comprehensive amnesty legislation, and Michael Bloomberg’s pro-amnesty Partnership for a New American Economy, praised Bush for his pro-amnesty views. Spencer Zwick, who led Mitt Romney’s fundraising efforts, went as far to say that any serious GOP contender should share Bush’s pro-amnesty views.

“We have to have someone who is willing to take on this issue,” Spencer Zwick reportedly said on the call, according to a Tampa Bay Times report. “We have to nominate a candidate who is willing to let action be stronger than inaction. Because as Republicans, we’ve let inaction be our model for too long.”

Those who helped Bush raise at least $4 million in Chicago last week included, according to the Wall Street Journal, John Rowe, the chairman of the Illinois Business Coalition that supports citizenship for illegal immigrants. He donated $25,000 to Bush’s PAC and reportedly said Bush “is the kind of candidate that a lot of Republican donors have been looking for—someone who can win the general election and reach out beyond the party’s core supporters.”

“Immigration reform is a lucrative position [for Jeb Bush],” Bloomberg News recentlydeclared.

The Chicago fundraiser, according to the Journal, also included big backers of gay marriage, Common Core, and abortion.

Former New Jersey Governor Christie Todd Whitman, a prominent symbol of the establishment Republican who loathes conservatives, attended the fundraiser and reportedly said that she is leaning toward Bush “because he’s been very thoughtful in sticking to his guns on issues like immigration and Common Core.” John Canning, described as “a top fundraiser for former President George W. Bush who donated to Mr. Obama in 2007 because… the GOP had moved too far to the right on stem-cell research and climate change,” also attended the Chicago fundraiser, according to the Journal.

As conservative icon and talk radio host Mark Levin has emphasized, moderate GOP candidates who do not galvanize the conservative base in the general election end.

“It’s very, very, important that we nominate a conservative for the first time since Ronald Reagan,” Levin said last year. “There are people under 50-years-old who have never had an opportunity to vote for a conservative president. We want to show them what it’s like. It’s our generation’s responsibility.”

Republicans who want a presidential nominee who does not galvanize grassroots conservatives seem to think that Jeb Bush is their best investment.

Which RINO in 2016?

3 Comments

On Friday I stopped by Murphy’s Law blog  and read his observations about Jeb Bush being the 2016 nominee.

It made me think of my election rant at my brother-in-law’s house on Christmas Day. My in-laws are pretty conservative, so we were all in the same frame of mind politically.

That being said, I did shock my father-in-law by saying if Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, or Mitt Romney were the nominee, I would not vote for the President in 2016.

My father-in-law then said that not voting for Bush, Romney, or Christie is a vote for the DemocRats. I said that at least we know what the DemocRats stand for hating America.

I replied Jeb Bush stands for giving the illegals legal status at the very least. I am not sure what Chris Christie stands for except being a suck-up to advance his agenda. And Mitt Romney is a confirmed presidential loser.

I stated that at least we knew what Ronald Reagan stood for, and he won with his stance by two landslides.

(Then my father-in-law said that Reagan lost also. Actually, Reagan got screwed by the Establishment Republicans in 1972 with the Gerald Ford nomination.)

If any of these RINO’s get the 2016 GOP nomination, I believe that very many Conservatives like myself will not vote.

I held my nose and voted in 2008, and again in 2016. No more. I refuse to accept any more northeastern liberals or any more Bush family members to continue the dynasty.

I will no longer vote for a RINO just to defeat a DemocRat when the RINO will be a DemocRat lite.

I will no longer go along to get along I will fight to the bloody end to keep a RINO out of the White House in 2016.

I personally do not think Bush, Christie, or Romney could be elected.

 

REMEMBER THE WEIMAR REPUBLIC, AND WORRY

1 Comment

This is from Patriot UpDate.

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. George Santayana

weimer

Most people aren’t aware that the Weimar Republic technically didn’t end until the fall of Hitler in 1945. What it is best remembered for, however, is hyperinflation and the rise of Hitler. In 1919 in Germany one loaf of bread cost 1 mark; by 1923, the same loaf of bread cost 100 billion marks. There are photos from that era showing German citizens burning marks to heat their homes because it was cheaper than trying to buy wood or coal.

For those who don’t remember, here is a brief history from Wikipedia: “Following World War I, the republic emerged from the German Revolution in November 1918. In 1919, a national assembly was convened in Weimar, where a new constitution for the German Reich was written, then adopted on 11 August of that same year. The ensuing period of liberal democracy lapsed by 1930, when Hindenburg assumed dictatorial emergency powers, leading to the ascent of the nascent Nazi Party and Adolf Hitler in 1933.”

 There were a couple of problems that caused that hyperinflation. The main one was that republic owed a massive debt stemming from reparations forced on Germany as a result of World War I. The last payment on those reparations, incidentally, wasn’t made until 2010. This debt and the government’s inability to make the required annual payments in “real” money, led to the printing of massive quantities of marks.

At one point, the government was over-printing marks, turning one mark into 10,000 or more—at least on paper. The value of the Papiermark had declined from 4.2 per U.S. dollar at the outbreak of World War I to 1 million per dollar by August 1923. The problem, of course, was that the paper meant nothing.

During the period before the rise of Hitler, the government became weaker, more faction-ridden and various groups formed their own militias, including communists, traditionalists, socialists, national socialists (NAZIs), etc.

It was amidst this chaos that Hindenburg chose to rule by decree. He was aged and did little with his decrees to bring Germany out of its “malaise”. Instead, he prepared the way for Hitler, who with the largest, but still a minority, party took over the government and ruled by decree.

The reason we should remember the Weimar Republic is because of the glaring similarities in our national landscape. First, we have a massive debt, growing daily, which many recognize never will be repaid. Secondly, we have become very factionalized with socialists, Islamists, abortionists, black panthers, conservatives and others increasingly at one another’s throats.

Like in the Weimar Republic, we have a divided national legislature unable to do very much that is constructive. And for inflation, we have a federal reserve that doesn’t actually print massive quantities of money, it just declares it exists by electronic fiat. It has nothing backing it up, not even paper.

The fed points to inflation and claims things are fine since it is only 2 or 3 percent per year. Two or three percent per year amounts to 20 or 30 percent over 10 years, and there have been periods over the last 25 years when it has been more than 10 percent in a year. If you go back to Roosevelt, second socialist U.S. president (after Wilson), inflation has skyrocketed.

I pumped gas when I was in high school at 17 cents per gallon (and wiped your windshield and checked your oil). At today’s $3.00 per gallon or more, that more than 175 percent inflation in about 40 years. Prior to Roosevelt, inflation had been miniscule. A dollar still would buy you an acre of land in some places, about the same as just after the Revolution. We are not experiencing “benign” inflation, it’s galloping on a fiery horse, despite what Keynesian illusionists will tell you.

Finally, there is one other very serious reason to remember the Weimar Republic. That is that Hindenburg and Hitler ruled by decree. Guess what, a certain B. Hussein Obama increasingly is ruling by decree. He issues executive orders and his agencies, such as the EPA, issue all kinds of “regulations” roughly (sometimes very roughly) authorized by something Congress has passed. We increasingly are being ruled by decree.

So we have rampant inflation, a factionalized society, and a massive and rapidly growing national debt. All we need for this mess to result in the rise of another Hitler is someone with a penchant for ruling by decree, ambitious and determined to “fundamentally change” the nation. Know anyone with that mindset?

CHENEY: The Obama Administration ‘Can’t Blame George Bush Anymore’

Leave a comment

This is from Business Insider.

Dick Cheney is correct, it will be George W Bush’s fault as well as those evil Conservatives and Republicans also.

 

Former Vice President Dick Cheney lashed out again at President Barack Obama on Sunday, repeatedly accusing him of projecting “weakness” abroad and “crippling” the U.S. military.

The frequent Obama critic told radio show host and GOP megadonor John Catsimatidis that he traces “most” of the problems of Washington to the current administration.

“They can’t blame George Bush anymore,” Cheney quipped on AM 970 The Answer’s “The Cats Roundtable.” “I think he’s been a failure as a president. I think the scandals, wth respect to the Veterans Administration, with respect to the IRS, these are bad situations.”

Nevertheless, Cheney said there were “even worse” things going on in the Obama administration. Cheney, a foreign policy hawk and former secretary of defense, claimed cuts to the defense budget have created a particularly dire set of circumstances.

“There are even worse things going on in my mind. One is the absolute gutting of the United States military. I just read a piece this morning in the Stars and Stripes that they’re getting ready to lay off 500 majors in the U.S. army,” he said. “Not long ago they did the same thing with a large group of captains.”

Cheney said Obama’s successor would ultimately pay the price for this military reduction.

“They’re dramatically cutting back the defense budget, year after year after year,” he said. “That’s a terrible precedent to set because it’s going to cripple us in future years. When you make decisions about the defense budget, and especially when you’re cutting back on it, you are crippling your successors as president.”
