Climate Change Madness: Do the Europeans know what they are doing?

British leaders are making some truly bizarre decisions in an effort to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and comply with European renewable electricity mandates. For example, they are converting a coal-fired plant to burn wood chips that are shipped from the United States. A wood burning plant qualifies under the European rules for meeting electricity generation mandates from renewable energy for the purpose of reducing carbon dioxide emissions from energy producing sources.  But this move is sheer lunacy for it will increase rather than decrease emissions while increasing the price of electricity to consumers. Yet the British parliament has whole-heartedly embraced the move. Have legislators gone mad?

Bin Laden’s Death is a Dangerous Anniversary

Thursday, May 2, is a day to be especially watchful. Jihadists are particularly fond of celebrating anniversaries and on that day in 2011 Seal Team Six found and killed Osama bin Laden. September 11, 2001 is now an indelible part of U.S. history and on September 11, 2012, jihadists attacked and killed an American ambassador and three others.

Taxpayer-funded assistance paid for terrorists-in-training

The welfare state now matches lax immigration policy in enabling terrorism.  And in the case of suspected terrorists in the Tsarnaev family it took 10 years for the public to find out.

Easy for bombers to learn their terrorism trade when the families that house them can depend on monthly social assistance checks supplemented by food stamps.

Another Cover-up for the Saudis?

The possible involvement of a Saudi in the Boston terror attacks is being curiously ignored or downplayed by most of the mainstream media. Steve Emerson, Glenn Beck, and others have pressed for answers, however. Beck has issued a full report with updates on the controversy.

A sad day in America

I find it fascinating when the President jumps right out in front of some stories and totally refuses to acknowledge others.

Benghazi:  Help Wasn’t On the Way

A special operator who witnessed the 9/11 attack at Benghazi has told Fox News’ Adam Housley that help was available that night but never deployed. This information, of course, contradicts the administration’s stubborn insistence that there was nothing that could have been done to save the lives of four Americans that night.

Stalemate Continues On UN Chemical Weapons Investigation In Syria

H.E. Bashar Ja’afari, Syria’s ambassador to the United Nations, held an hour long press conference today at UN headquarters in New York where he complained of “fraudulent accusations” against the Syrian government that it has used chemical weapons against the Syrian people. He said that such charges leveled at his government, including those based on unreliable intelligence assessments, lacked “any corroborated facts” and reminded him of the unfounded weapons of mass destruction charges leading up to the Iraq war in 2003.

AP worried Obama won’t gain politically from ‘recovery’

They get right to what really matters - to them, and to the rest of the political class. The issue is not whether you will benefit from whatever positive economic developments there may be. Screw you. It’s all about whether our favorite celebrity politicians will stay fat and happy.

Common Core

First I want to say this column will probably be the easiest and one of the most important ones I will ever publish. It’ll be easy because I don’t have to write it. Much of the information comes directly from the United Nations website of UNESCO: The United Nations Organization for Education, Science and Culture (UNESCO) founded on 16 November 1945. Where I’ve entered questions I have (and you should too), I’ll italicize and accent by font change, the question and/or statement.

Airline Passenger Detained for Being a Jerk

Obama as Messiah—Anointing Oil Included!

Obama, Frackin' Capitalists

Recent developments in the American petroleum sector have utterly exposed the rhetorical excesses of Obama, suggesting his speeches are designed towards supporting a certain ideology over known facts. During a period where Barack’s energy policy can be succinctly quoted as, “We can’t drill our way out,” huge advances are being made in stateside production, daily. In fact, America recently passed Saudi Arabia as the world’s #1 petroleum producer. Moreover, the EIA announced the US will be fully energy independent by the year 2035.
