What you plan to do on Memorial Day is absolutely anathema to Leftists, Demorats and to Barack Hussein Obama. There should be no fires, no charcoal, no propane, no gathering, no smashing of grass by your feet, no using your heinous C02-emitting vehicles to get to the barbecue and, certainly, there should be no meat involved whatsoever.
That’s not even getting to the point that Obama surely believes celebrating Memorial Day does nothing but promote the oppression of persons globally by Evil America.
Yet, despite that, there is the truth. First, from RickWells.us:
Obama Pitches Alternatives To Meat -That’s Insects, At UN Globalist Food Control Event
On Tuesday Hussein Obama graced the incredibly fortunate people of Milan with his wondrous presence as the location of his coming out as the new globalist spokesperson. They can all tell their grandchildren when they get old about the time they sat in traffic and basked in the Obama greatness as his fourteen car motorcade and police escort passed nearby.
Obama was in Milan to participate in what the organizers billed as the Seeds and Chips Global Food Innovation Summit, a UN effort to control our lives, largely through the climate hoax and with a focus on telling us what we will and will not eat. A portion of the proceedings took the format of Obama sitting and engaging in inane and uninteresting chit-chat with his cook.
Well, let’s stop right there. First, Barack Hussein Obama had to get to the venue in the first place, yes? Why not on a private jet, and why not in a lengthy motorcade whose vehicles spewed tons of C02 into the atmo? From the IJR.com:
Former President Barack Obama traveled to Italy this week to make a speech on climate change at the “Seed & Chips: The Global Food Innovation Summit” in the city of Milan.
It seems like Obama has taken a page out of Leonardo DiCaprio’s book of “do as I say, not as I do” and took a private jet to Milan. Not only that, he had a 14 car convoy to get into the city, which also included protection from above with a helicopter.
It doesn’t end there. According to The Daily Mail, 300 police officers were used to protect the former president.
That would seem to include overtime, stressed budgets, more persons in C02-emitting vehicles and, after all, 14 C02-spewing cars in a motorcade. All to promote the exact opposite of what Leftists used to demand from others. Just not Barack Obama these days.
Obama, the expert on everything, is being a little coy in the initial stages of converting the peasants of the word from meat eaters to bug eaters, warning the commoners that more people on the planet were eating meat, creating the false hazard of the UN boogeyman, unsustainability. Naturally that led him back, as everything does, to a need to control the people based upon the climate.
Obama cautioned against the hazards of too many human carnivores, as he sat cross-legged for a little girl talk with his cook, noting, “People aren’t as familiar with the impact of cows and methane. As people want to increase more meat consumption, that in turn is spiking the growth of greenhouse emissions coming out of the agricultural sectors.”
Barack Hussein Obama — tone deaf as per normal — said:
“No matter what, we are going to see an increase in meat consumption.” He designated developing countries such as China, India, Indonesia, and Vietnam as the culprits. He primed the pump for austerity, stating that more advanced countries would have to teach people to “have a smaller steak” and investigate other ways to reduce their meat consumption. They’ll undoubtedly train us in the same manner they educated us out of our big cars in the seventies with high fuel prices, by making steak too expensive to eat, through taxes and regulations, so all we can afford are the smaller, cheaper cuts.
Guess what? I eat massive steaks and lobster most every weekend. I drive a rather large Kraut Kar with an amazing engine that runs on Premium. Normally aspirated, it still accelerates like a banshee on fire. I drive it hard and I drive it fast much to the dismay of my wife and my personal angel. I was warned: “never drive faster than your angel can travel.” My personal angel can easily keep up with me. We have this pact.
Obama said that eating more steaks leads to ultimate destruction. From Breitbart.com:
Barack Obama: Eating More Steaks Contributes to Climate Change
by Charlie Spiering
Former President Barack Obama warned the world that more people on the planet were eating meat, causing a dramatic rise in climate emissions.
“As people want to increase meat consumption, that in turn is spiking the growth of greenhouse emissions coming out of the agricultural sector,” Obama said, pointing to countries that were consuming more meat.
Cows and methane. Are you serious?
“What is true is that I’m not a vegetarian,” Obama admitted, adding that he “respected vegetarians” but continued to eat meat.
But here’s the ultimate Best Part:
Barack Hussein Obama made $400,000 from a speech he proffered to those he hated on Wall Street on behalf of global punters, a firm called Cantor Fitzgerald. A mere niggling detail not worth mentioning. Right? And wasn’t there more?
Obama Climate Change Speech Earns $3.26 Million for Personal Foundation
by Ben Kew
Former president Barack Obama’s speech on climate change in Italy raised €3 million ($3.26m) in ticket sales for his personal foundation, according to a report from The Times.
Having travelled to Milan in a private jet, Obama settled into a presidential suite at the Park Hyatt hotel, costing roughly €8,400 a night. Meanwhile, his entourage of security occupied two separate floors across the hotel, while his security detail required a convoy of 14 cars, a helicopter, and 300 extra police.
The event, which attracted 3500 people paying €850 a ticket, raised nearly €3 million, all of which will go to the Obama Foundation dedicated to “renewal and global progress.”
Doesn’t this “Obama Foundation” sound suspiciously familiar? Like the — ahem — Clinton Foundation? You know, the place that acquired its funds by having Bill and Hill do the exact same thing — making speeches for hundreds of thousands of dollars a pop?
Obama’s visit to Italy forms part of a series of speeches in which he defends his record in office and attempts to undermine the policies of the Trump administration. In an acceptance speech after receiving the John F. Kennedy “Profile in Courage” award, Obama urged lawmakers to show “political courage” to save his landmark healthcare bill known as the Affordable Care Act.
You get that? “Part of a series of speeches”? At hundreds of thousands of dollars each? Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren carefully disagrees with Obama’s expensive speeches as she speaks with SiriusXM 102 Radio Andy’s program “Alter Family Politics.”
Even Bill Maher and Bernie Sanders weigh in against Barack Hussein Obama.
Once more, the rampant and burgeoning hypocrisy of Leftists and specifically Mr Obama.
In the meantime, enjoy your steak on Memorial Day.
Al Gore: Spend $90 Trillion To Ban Cars From Every Major City In The World
by Michael Bastasch
Former Vice President Al Gore and former Mexican President Felipe Calderon are pushing for $90 trillion in spending to ban cars from every major city in the world and make them more dense.
Gore and Calderon presented a report from the Global Commission on the Economy & Climate (GCEC) and argued that fighting global warming will require making cities more compact and wholly reliant on public transit. This is the only way to make sure urban areas don’t contribute to global warming, the two politicians argued.
What did I tell you? Leftists want to shove you all like the good little herring you could be into massive high-rises with more little tin can apartments.
It’s already happening in New York, with the so-called “trendy” apartments of 450 square feet to 200 square feet. You can swim in a public swimming pool, exercise in a public gym, piss in public restrooms, pack like straws into a public elevator, and acquire public diseases in a much lesser time. How au courant! How perfect for the Religious Left, who eschew energy facts in favor of mere belief. I believe, Great Gaia, I believe! Hallelujah, I believe, praise Gore!
GOWPs will go for it in a heartbeat, the guilty Millennials that they are. What’s the downside? Lord knows there’s no more space available in NYC.
Who needs cars when we can mandate that we eliminate cars wholesale and build more micro-apartments?
GCEC’s study says that “more compact, better-connected cities with strong mass transit systems will help policy-makers tackle these pressing challenges. Such cities are more productive, socially inclusive, resilient, cleaner, quieter and safer.”
Really? What happens when your electricity dies in a blackout or runs out? What happens when the water treatment system tanks? What happens when sanitation workers or transit workers or public service workers go on strike? What happens when your internet and satellite systems go down?
“Despite all my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage.”
And it is upon these lies that various heads of state (think: Barack Hussein Obama) wish to predicate state and nation-busting economic and societal change. Change that would affect the American Taxpayer directly and — once again — make the American Taxpayer responsible not just for the US but other nations as well.
Here is an article from the UK Telegraph, emphasize my belief once again that if you wish to know what is happening around the world and in our own country, you can kick the American Media Maggots primarily to the curb.
The scandal of fiddled global warming data
The US has actually been cooling since the Thirties, the hottest decade on record
by Christopher Booker
When future generations try to understand how the world got carried away around the end of the 20th century by the panic over global warming, few things will amaze them more than the part played in stoking up the scare by the fiddling of official temperature data. There was already much evidence of this seven years ago, when I was writing my history of the scare, The Real Global Warming Disaster. But now another damning example has been uncovered by Steven Goddard’s US blog Real Science, showing how shamelessly manipulated has been one of the world’s most influential climate records, the graph of US surface temperature records published by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Goddard shows how, in recent years, NOAA’s US Historical Climatology Network (USHCN) has been “adjusting” its record by replacing real temperatures with data “fabricated” by computer models. The effect of this has been to downgrade earlier temperatures and to exaggerate those from recent decades, to give the impression that the Earth has been warming up much more than is justified by the actual data. In several posts headed “Data tampering at USHCN/GISS”, Goddard compares the currently published temperature graphs with those based only on temperatures measured at the time. These show that the US has actually been cooling since the Thirties, the hottest decade on record; whereas the latest graph, nearly half of it based on “fabricated” data, shows it to have been warming at a rate equivalent to more than 3 degrees centigrade per century.
Please note: “the US has actually been cooling since the Thirties, the hottest decade on record.”
I ask, take the time to carefully read the rest of the article and click on the indicated notations.
Because Global Warming as a general meme had difficulty to the point that it became the very generic “Climate Change,” so is this meme having difficulty in standing up to the light of day. And the largest launcher of the so-called “Global Warming” craze taken up by the Religious Left: the poor white bear on the itty-bitty ice shard:
Poor polar bear. Brutalized and reduced to riding an ice cube due to that Evil Man. And thusly anthropogenic Global Warming was born.
Leftists don’t believe in religion because they don’t believe in God. The only god they bow to is that of Global Warming, which requires every bit of faith or more to believe in than an overarching deity. Hence the Religious Left dutifully believe in GW because other Leftists say so and it’s emphasized by those who likewise buy into the meme, as in teachers, major networks, Alphonse Gore, Demorats and other on the GW Bandwagon. A bandwagon that requires only faith, not consistent and true facts.
On that notion, the US Supreme Court — just today — placed limits on the EPA’s ability to decry “Global Warming” and kill coal.
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday placed limits on the sole Obama administration program already in place to deal with power plant and factory emissions of gases blamed for global warming.
The justices said that the Environmental Protection Agency lacks authority in some cases to force companies to evaluate ways to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. This rule applies when a company needs a permit to expand facilities or build new ones that would increase overall pollution. Carbon dioxide is the chief gas linked to global warming.
Imperial power, being used with regal impunity, courtesy of Barack Hussein Obama — who says: why go through Congress? I can do anything I wish, myself.
Besides, if you really wanted to stop “Global Warming,” which Leftists believe is solely due to the rise of carbon dioxide emissions — the byproduct of human beings — then kill all the people. Because the Religious Left say people are therefore responsible, I say: you first.
Study: West Antarctic Glacier Melt Due To Volcanoes, Not Global Warming
by Michael Bastach
A new study by researchers at the University of Texas, Austin found that the West Antarctic Ice Sheet is collapsing due to geothermal heat, not man-made global warming.
Researchers from the UTA’s Institute for Geophysics found that the Thwaites Glacier in western Antarctica is being eroded by the ocean as well as geothermal heat from magma and subaerial volcanoes. Thwaites is considered a key glacier for understanding future sea level rise.
UTA researchers used radar techniques to map water flows under ice sheets and estimate the rate of ice melt in the glacier. As it turns out, geothermal heat from magma and volcanoes under the glacier is much hotter and covers a much wider area than was previously thought.
“Geothermal flux is one of the most dynamically critical ice sheet boundary conditions but is extremely difficult to constrain at the scale required to understand and predict the behavior of rapidly changing glaciers,” UTA researchers wrote in their study, which was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The geothermal heat under the glaciers is likely a key factor in why the ice sheet is currently collapsing. Before this study, it was assumed that heat flow under the glacier was evenly distributed throughout, but UTA’s study shows this is not the case. Heat levels under the glacier are uneven, with some areas being much hotter than others.
At the same time:
But reports of the western ice sheet’s collapse comes as Antarctic ice sheets continue to break records. At the end of May, Antarctic sea ice extent reached the highest level since measurements began in 1979.
Sea ice extent reached nearly 13 million square kilometers — 10.3 percent above the 1981-2010 climatological average of 11.7 million square kilometers. The previous record was 12.7 million square kilometers set in 2010.
Warming and cooling? Yes, the earth does both. Caused solely by man, anthropogenic, and irrevocably unrecoverable? No. Do the Religious Left believe “global warming” is unrecoverable, fervently, with all their hearts? Yes, they do. But I submit: in the extremely brief time we have been documenting the earth’s climate, we no more have a grasp of earth’s changing face than we do the depth and breadth of space.
I also submit: over-reacting to so-called “global warming” is a wonderful way to break nations, pit people against each other, fleece the pockets of the American Taxpayer and redistribute wealth as determined by DC in concert with the Religious Left.
