QUESTIONS: ARE PRESIDENT OBAMA AND HIS CADRE OF PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS BREAKING THE LAW WHEN THEY SUPPORT ILLEGAL ALIENS WITH AN ALLEGIENCE TO A FOREIGN STATE OVER AMERICAN CITIZENS?

The big question …

Are President Obama and the Congressional Democrats violating the Constitution when they advocate and vote for supporting illegal aliens with an allegiance to a foreign state over the interests of American citizens?

To the extent that these foreign illegal aliens will fundamentally change the social character of our nation and disadvantage American citizens economically, culturally, and physically due to unknown impacts on existing American infrastructure? 

And, why the progressive socialist democrats, who demand an environmental impact report to stop the smallest project, are not required to uphold the current immigration laws, enumerate the illegal alien population, and produce an environmental impact report for the nation?

Bottom line …

Something stinks in politics – and the smell comes from both sides of the Congressional aisle!

German Court Must Decide if it's a Crime to Kill and Eat Someone: Have people lost their minds when they need to turn to lawyers and courts to define acceptable behavior?

Lawyers are becoming a plague on modern society, inserting themselves into every religious, political, and secular subject …

German Court Must Decide if it’s a Crime to Kill and Eat Someone

Cannibalism is not something people want to think about a few days after Thanksgiving, but it’s in the news again. “A German police officer has been arrested on suspicion of killing and chopping up a man he met on the Internet who had long fantasized about being killed and eaten.” Authorities have not been able to determine if the killer had eaten any of his victim, but the intent was there.

But is it morally wrong to kill and eat someone if the person who wants to be killed and eaten agrees to be killed and eaten? This question was asked before in the famous German cannibal case. Was is it about Germans who want to be killed and eaten? Read more at: German Court Must Decide if it’s a Crime to Kill and Eat Someone

Bottom line …

There comes a point when society can no longer tolerate lawyers who create legislation and laws to govern the most minute interpersonal interactions, thus giving rise to a body of law so massive, dense, incomprehensible, and restrictive, that much of the population is in danger of selective prosecution from laws they did not know about and are unable to read and understand.

What make lawyers do dangerous is that they do not apply common sense nor do they consider morality; they are merely advocates for their client’s positions whether they are right, wrong, or simply inoffensive. In the case of lawyers in politics, they are advocates for the government, fighting to enlarge the size, scope and funding of government operations. They are NOT advocates for the people! We are not speaking of lawyers defending criminal cases, but lawyers practicing administrative law on behalf of their clients.

Even worse than economists with their “one one hand … and on the other hand …” nonsense, lawyers and politicians are screwing up the legal system with overlapping and nonsensical laws – all for the purpose of enriching their profession and locking individuals out of the legal system without employing an advocate.

In the present instance, consider what would have happened if the first party contracted with a second party to kill and eat the first party. Then what? A null and void contract because of an existing law that criminalizes cannibalism? What about arguing that it was the parties religious practice and that they have a right to practice their religion? In any event, lawyers for the prosecution and the defense – as well as the judge – are well paid to dispose of this troubling matter.

Whatever happened to the Ten Commandments and Thou shalt not kill? Whoops, forgot – the atheists will sue me because I mentioned law, government, and religion in the same blog post. Some things are beyond the pale.

IS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION LYING ABOUT IRAN'S NUCLEAR CAPABILITIES?

Why should we trust President Obama and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats to tell us the truth about Iran’s nuclear capabilities? President Obama has proven that he is willing to tell some of the most outrageous lies directly to the American people, when such lies are easily proven to be lies! And when President Obama and his socialist advisors knew the truth before they lied to the American people. Consider Obamacare, Benghazi, the IRS interference with a presidential election, and the Fast and Furious scandal to be examples of progressive socialist democrats lying to Americans.

So why should we not believe that Iran already has a nuclear weapon, with the proof of concept already tested by North Korea? So why didn’t our leaders stop the creation of weapons-bearing ballistic missiles which puts the greater world at risk of being attacked or blackmailed?

What the hell is going on with all of the NSA spying if they cannot keep tabs on real threats to America and Americans with their multi-billion dollar black budgets.

Is it true that President Obama and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats are trying to weaken America from within and to benefit our foreign adversaries in order to bring about their more equal and perfect dream of socialism?

Kerry Duped As North Korea And Iran Develop New ICBM

As we shutter our ICBM squadrons and destroy our silos, Iran and North Korea are working on technology to deliver nukes Pyongyang already has and Tehran is a few centrifuge rotations from acquiring.

As Bill Gertz of the Washington Free Beacon reports, groups of technicians from the Shahid Hemmat Industrial Group (SHIG), a unit in charge of building Iran's liquid-fueled missiles, have made repeated trips to North Korea during the past several months, including as recently as late October, to work on a new 80-ton rocket booster being developed by the North Koreans,

That booster is believed to be the foundation for a new heavy-lift missile with intercontinental range and capable of carrying a large nuclear warhead. It would be far more capable than Pyongyang's Taepodong or Iran's Shahab missile series.

The booster was described by one official as a thruster for a "super ICBM" or a heavy-lift space launcher. "It is completely new from what they have done so far," he added.

"Perhaps (Secretary of State) John Kerry believes that Iran only wants ballistic missiles for peaceful purposes," says former Pentagon adviser Michael Rubin.

"The fact of the matter is that Kerry and crew left both ballistic missiles and the nuclear warhead trigger experimentation at Parchin (military site) off the table" during talks in Geneva, he said. "It's the diplomatic equivalent of installing a burglar alarm system in your house but leaving the keys in the door."

It wasn't long after Neville Chamberlain's return from Munich in 1938 with a paper proclaiming "peace in our time" that German V-2 rockets began raining down on London. As the saying goes, those who refuse to learn from history are condemned to repeat it, this time with nukes. Read more at: Iran And North Korea Develop New Rocket Booster For ICBMs - Investors.com

Bottom line …

What if President Obama and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats is more than incompetent? Possibly to subvert the safety and security of the United States from within, to benefit our enemies, both foreign and domestic?

I believe that the international socialists and communists have infiltrated the democrats to the point where they are a clear and present danger to America and must be removed from office in the upcoming 2014 congressional election cycle. Certainly they cannot be trusted to tell America the truth or keep Americans safe.

Kanye West thinks he is Shakespeare ...

Another delusional rapper hustling the brand for more media attention …

‘I am Shakespeare’ — Kanye’s ego reaches new heights --  Kanye West has compared his talent to the genius of Andy Warhol and William Shakespeare.

Now he says his and Kim Kardashian’s baby daughter, North West, is as important to the world as Prince George, the future King of England.

In an interview to promote his Yeezus tour, Kanye told radio station Power 105 that his daughter “is in a position of a level of royalty like the Prince and Princess in London,” appearing to refer to Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, who was pregnant at the same time as Kardashian.

Then, discussing his video for “Bound 2,” which features a naked Kim straddling Kanye on a motorcycle, and sparked a spoof from James Franco and Seth Rogen, Kanye said, “I want to show you that this is ‘The Hunger Games’ . . . And the only difference is a black dude in the middle of it . . . I’m like Marina Abramovic.”

He continued, “This is, like, performance art.” Later in the day he was interviewed on radio station Shade 45 and raved, “I’m standing up, and I’m telling you, I am Warhol. I am the No. 1 most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh.”  ‘I am Shakespeare’  Read more at:  Kanye’s ego reaches new heights | Page Six

Someone should tell him that if his child grows up in the progressive socialist democrat world of Obama, she is doomed to be yet another unexceptional population unit to be managed and utilized by the ruling elite for the benefit of the community. Like President Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize, awarded on the basis of zero accomplishment, his child is rather unexceptional except for being a member of the lucky sperm club and able to trade on mummy and daddy’s money and notoriety in the future. Harsh, but the reality of an increasingly hard world.

As for his claim to equal Shakespeare’s artistic fame and creative longevity, that is for the world to judge in a hundred years or so …

We don’t got it like that. When I tell you only seven black billionaires, look at marginalization, and we feel like we happy because me and Rick Ross got it made, or I got a spread outside, a couple of us, or they put a black president.

Man, let me tell you something about George Bush and oil money and Obama and no money. People want to say Obama can't make these moves or he's not executing. That's because he ain't got those connections. Black people don't have the same level of connections as Jewish people. Black people don't have the same connection as oil people.

You know we don't know nobody that got a nice house. You know we don’t know nobody with paper like that we can go to when we down. You know they can just put us back or put us in a corporation. You know we ain’t in situation. Can you guarantee that your daughter can get a job at this radio station? But if you own this radio station, you could guarantee that. That’s what I’m talking about.”

Read more at: Kanye West on Obama's Failures: ‘Black People Don’t Have the Same Connections as Jewish People’

I am betting his work will be buried in the sands of time. It appears the only thing he has in common with Shakespeare is that his English is harsh to the modern ear.

Bottom line …

It always amazes me that high-earning celebrities. who are surrounded by business associates and sycophants who tell them they are “geniuses,” appear to believe that their opinion matters to the non-celebrity worshiping world or that they have some particular insight into world affairs. Of course, many of these so-called “experts” will do or say anything to grab media attention and to promote their own brand of bullshit.

It doesn’t bother me so much that Kanye is a consummate self-promoter able to leverage his brand of bullshit into $100 million, it is that he appears to be so stupid as to believe that the President of the United States doesn’t have the best connections in the world. Commanding attention, if not respect, from everybody he meets or speaks with – even indirectly through aides. So to attribute Obama’s failure to a lack of connections like the Jewish people is racist, ignorant, and just plain stupid.

As for President Obama, here is the alleged smartest person in the room that has just brought pain and suffering to tens of millions of Americans with his radical socialist change, transformation, and redistribution – and, if my suspicions are correct, hates both Israel and the Jews in the very same manner as his 20+ year spiritual mentor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright.

Both of these bozos should be held accountable for talking smack when the America is melting down before our very eyes.

THANKSGIVING DAY: BE THANKFUL YOU ARE NOT A PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST DEMOCRAT AND THE 2014 CONGRESSIONAL ELECTIONS ARE LOOMING ON THE HORIZON

If there was ever something that you should be thankful for, it is probably you are not a hard-core progressive socialist democrat. Not only do they derive political power from creating and managing scarce resources instead of celebrating American exceptionalism and the creation of abundance, they are busy attacking and redefining American culture and institutions in order to bring about a state of equity – where all Americans are equally impoverished and miserable. That is, with the exception of the so-called enlightened and corrupt liberal ruling elite and their special interest friends.

Look at the offerings of one of the most prominent progressive blogs; reeking with demonization and negativity on Thanksgiving day …

  • 10 Ways to Deal With Right-Wing Christian Relatives Over the Holidays – I was unaware that right-wing Christian relatives were a problem that needed to be dealt with.
  • No Thanks to Thanksgiving – Perhaps we should all atone for the genocide and condemn the founding fathers. As if the KKK was not comprised of democrats, and we should ignore the progressive socialist democrats who held fundraisers for Darfur, but did little or nothing to stop the actual killing. Especially the progressive socialist cowards and dictators at the United Nations.
  • Which Retail Stores Are Helping to Destroy Thanksgiving? Want to bet it is a store that delivers the best value for the consumer’s dollar. but refuses to be ruled by the corrupt progressive socialist unions that support mediocrity over innovation, seniority over merit, higher wages and benefits without an increase in productivity, and nonsensical work rules that requires multiple union people to complete a single one-person task? 
  • 6 of the Top 10 U.S. Billionaires Are Kochs and Waltons – Imagine that the only evil billionaires headlined are those that donate to non-liberal causes and those who profit from those evil non-union stores. Notice they are not attacking those billionaire who are flaming corrupt progressive socialist democrats like “Billionaire Michael Bloomberg”, the founder of New York’s nanny city, and contributor to global warming with his “personal” helicopter.
  • America’s Next Big Rip-Off: Cars Might Be the Next Subprime Crisis! – Those evil bankers and Wall Street Wizards. I wonder if they will mention that it was the progressive socialist democrat and alleged rapist Bill Clinton who signed legislation destroying financial regulatory safeguards on derrivatives into law. Or that two of the most corrupt progressive socialist democrats in Congress (Christopher Dodd and Barney Frank) that created job-killing legislation that serves as a platform to destroy American business from within?
  • How Much Caffeine Is in Your Favorite Drink? Got to regulate food and drink for America’s own good. Perhaps nationalizing and unionizing the food supply like they did with healthcare.
  • You May Be Surprised How Much Our Climate Inaction Is Costing You – And what would thanksgiving be without a story involving climate. The progressive key to controlling the exploration, creation, transmission, storage, and usage of energy in a massive wealth redistribution scheme that makes the nationalization of one-sixth of our economy look puny by comparison? All based on junk science to promote a dangerous socialist/communist ideology.
  • This Thanksgiving, Let's Celebrate Agri-Culture, Not Agri-Business – Business is evil, evil I tell you. Unless it is managed and controlled by the progressive socialist democrat unions.
  • I Took Down the Man Who Posted a Hacked Topless Photo of My Daughter on the Internet – This was to be my favorite story because it promised a take-down of the “most hated man on the internet.” I was there when the modern internet was created at UCLA and have been a IT professional for most of my career, so I couldn’t wait to find out who the “most hated man on the internet” might be. Would it be one of the communications moguls trying to kill network neutrality? Would it be an evil government official killing a fledgling technology to bring us stronger encryption? No, it is someone I never heard of! Some random individual who put up a “revenge porn” website. Hardly the most hated man on the internet.

So on this Thanksgiving Day you may wish to revel in the negativity of the progressive socialist democrats …

Bringing death, destruction, and equal measures of illiteracy, poverty, disease, and despair to everyone, so we call all be equally miserable under the rule of the corrupt progressive socialist democrat elites and their special interest cronies.

Screw that – I am going to eat my turkey, enjoy my stuffing, find happiness in my pumpkin pie – and those who are trying to destroy America from within be damned!

I am thankful that we will have the 2014 congressional election cycle to throw these progressive socialist democrats and their communist union buddies out of office along with their RINO (Republican In Name Only) enablers and co-conspirators. For that I would be truly thankful that we live in America and not Venezuela or those worker’s paradises in Cuba, China, Russia, and the happiest place in the communist kingdom, North Korea.

ONECITIZENSPEAKING: THANKSGIVING 2013

turkey

While it is intuitively obvious that many of us have much to be thankful for: our health, happiness, family and friends – this should be a time to consider the future. 

Never in the history of the United States did a President and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats shred the United States Constitution and impose a mandate on all  Americans to purchase insurance from a private third-party or face fines, imprisonment, or other government sanctions such as the potential loss of Social Security or other earned government benefits.

Never in the history of the United States has a President inflicted gratuitious pain on millions of Americans who will lose their insurance coverage in the coming months -- many being treated for serious ailments -- all to pursue a progressive socialist agenda. Face it people, the words progressive and liberal can now be equated with un-American socialism and communism.

Never in the history of the United States has a President sought to impose central planning and administration on the American people, to the extent of usurping Congressional law-making and States' rights.

Even with our political, social, and financial world in jeopardy -- exacerbated by a malignancy in the Presidency and metastisizing throughout the bureaucracy -- we still have much to be thankful for. Our poor are millionaires when compared to the poor of most third-world nations. Poor is a relative term when some of our most disadvantaged citizens own cellphones, televisions, vehicles, and are not wanting for food, water, shelter or clothing. Of course, there are the truly poor, especially those who are mentally ill or disabled by drug use. To not help the poorest and sickest among us when we pump billions into foreign kleptocracies is criminal.

We live in a deeply-divided nation, made more so by the self-serving, corrupt politicians who are deliberately dividing Americans and setting them against one another for to pursue a malignant and toxic political ideology. This too is criminal.

Many of our fellow Americans may not be enjoying the comfort of a home, a hot meal or the pleasant companionship of family and friends today or tomorrow. And, in these days of a 16-trillion dollar national debt, that is a crime.

No, I am not suggesting that we turn towards socialism and the failed prescription of “from each according to their ability, to each according to his needs,” but I am suggesting controlling the manner in which public funds appear to be used to promote the self-interests of the political ruling class and their benefactors, the special interests.

Why, I am bound to ask, are so many people suffering when the politicians are telling us that they are acting to improve the lives of American citizens? Where have all the billions spent on eliminating poverty, crime and decaying neighborhoods gone? And why do inner city cesspools of decaying neighborhoods, crime and corruption still exist with such “enlightened” political leadership?

Truth be told, we are witnessing the most corrupt government in the history of the United States on all levels – local, state and federal. Politicians whose votes are for sale, year-after-year, to those who provide campaign funds, voter support and personal enrichment for the politicians, their relatives and “special friends.”

We can plainly see thuggish union leaders who have used the strength of their non-complaining members to push citizens away from the bargaining table so self-serving deals can be struck between themselves and their paid representatives in government. Deals which cost citizens billions of dollars in higher costs, lost productivity and the reward of seniority over merit, complacency over innovation and most of all – the stifling of individualism to support the unexceptional collective.

We allow our leaders to speak of education – to inform and uplift our children to new heights, preparing them for competition on a global scale; while the evidence shows that the bulk of the money targeted for education is used for adults – the administrators, unionized employees and the special interests – and never reachs the classroom. We see our children becoming mind-numbed robots; worshiping an empty celebrity culture and playing mind-warping games on the latest electronic devices. The promise of computer assisted teaching has become a plague of computer-assisted babysitting. Our children cannot do math without a calculator and cannot prepare a research paper without Google, Wikipedia and a cut-and-paste environment.

We allow the nation to be led by a virtual unknown; a man who hides his credentials from the public and who needs a speech writer and teleprompter to speak to the American people about his goals and what he really believes.

We allow a political party to field eight or more candidates, most of them babbling platitudes while disguising personal failings that would not be accepted for a position on a school board much less high public office.

What the hell happened to those who believed that this generation was the “best and the brightest?” What happened to individual responsibility where individuals actually paid for what they wanted in terms of real time, effort and money?

So I ask you on this Thanksgiving holiday, where did we go wrong and are we going to allow a relatively small bunch of pandering politicians and their special interest friends to rule our lives?

Are we going to demand a return on the investment of our own taxable labor to benefit ourselves, our family and our friends rather than those who contribute nothing to society, but take their piece of the action for non-performance?

Are we going to stop pretending and realize that the “emperor has no clothes” and has become an imperious Marie Antoinette?

Are we going to hold people accountable for their actions? Charity is one thing, but state-directed charity towards themselves is quite another. Especially when it is promoted behind a political agenda of “wealth redistribution” to gain the support of the masses.

Please open your eyes, look about and realize that there are those who do not wish America and its citizens well – and that there is a great likelihood that these people have infiltrated our educational, law enforcement, government and institutional infrastructure.

Think about next Thanksgiving and whether or not you will really be thankful for what the corrupt politicians and more easily manipulated voters among us have wrought.

And never, never forget those who are serving our nation in foreign lands, perhaps not having a Thanksgiving as they stand vigilant watch over America's interests and provide safety and security to Americans everywhere.

BOO HOO! A BLACK STUDENT AT UCLA PLAYS THE RACE CARD WHEN PROF CORRECTS GRAMMAR, PUNCTUATION, AND CAPITALIZATION!

When will Blacks learn that they are never going to be able to compete in a world of ideas or a world of actions when they view everything through the prism of race. Unfortunately, the progressive socialist democrats and their grievance industry have taught the past two generations to claim racism when they do not get a free pass on the rules and regulations that affect everybody else.

Can you believe this “micro-aggression” bullshit?

Prof corrects minority students’ capitalization, is accused of racism

Racial tensions are inflamed at the University of California at Los Angeles following several incidents — most notably, one where a professor corrected the grammar, punctuation and capitalization in minority students’ assignments.

The act of correcting a black student was “micro-aggression,” according to the members of the student group “Call 2 Action: Graduate Students of Color,” which launched a sit-in during a subsequent meeting of the class.

If the truth be told, what right does a single person have to disrupt the education of an entire class over such a trivial and subjective matter? I have listened to any number of high-ranking blacks in the Obama Administration who apparently were appointed based on their skin color. Because their ideas pointed to intellectual bankruptcy and their presentation was anything but perfect. Using big words inappropriately or out of context does not make you appear important, it is the quality of your ideas and the reasoning behind them that makes you important and relevant.

A hostile campus climate has been the norm for Students of Color in this class throughout the quarter as our epistemological and methodological commitments have been repeatedly questioned by our classmates and our instructor,” wrote the group in a statement to the college. “[The] barrage of questions by white colleagues and the grammar ‘lessons’ by the professor have contributed to a hostile class climate.” Some 25 students participated in the sit-in, including five of the 10 members of the class.

Relaxed standards, ideology over education – and you get ill-educated graduates who “feel” rather than reason …

Val Rust, a professor of education and information, was the official target of the sit-in, though the aggrieved minority students had problems with UCLA’s handling of racial issues that went far beyond just one classroom, according to Inside Higher Ed.

Rust is guest-lecturing in China this week, and did not respond to a request for comment. He sent a letter to his colleagues in the education department, however, in which he clarified that he meant no offense to minorities. I have attempted to be rather thorough on the papers and am particularly concerned that they do a good job with their bibliographies and citations, and these students apparently don’t feel that is appropriate,” he said in a statement, according to The Daily Bruin.

Some of the corrections were clarified by sit-in organizer Kenjus Watson. Rust told one student that she should not capitalize the word “indigenous” in her papers. This correction was ideologically-motivated, according to Watson.

Rust admitted that he likely made matters worse by not aggressively and proactively taking the side of a minority student who was engaged in an argument with a white female student. The minority student told the woman that she had no right to feel oppressed, and Rust did not express agreement either way.

Why does the Professor need to take any political, racial, or non-academic position unrelated to his educational obligations? Why should he apologize, when it is somewhat apparent from the tone and tenor of this story, that the student was seeking an opportunity to put forth a grievance – possibly to fit-in or impress her political activist friends.

These students should all be given the grades that they deserved. And, the self-serving racially-motivated students who infringed upon the rights of other students should have been removed by the University Cops as unwelcome distractions to education. The student who complained should have their paper reviewed by another department head and the findings presented to the Chancellor for further action. Possibly sending the student to the Academic Senate to face disciplinary action if appropriate.

Call me a racist, the word has absolutely no meaning any more …

It used to be that a charge of racism and bigotry was a stain on your honor. Well, no more! Because the race hustlers and grievance industry has falsely labeled anyone who disagrees with their progressive socialist position as a racist, the word has no meaning.

One need only to observe those who are angry when President Barack Obama and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats are called out for their abominable policy choices, both foreign and domestic. It can’t be the perfect policy of the enlightened one, so it must be racism and bigotry. Well folks, traitors come in all colors as do patriots. And, where our “affirmative action” President is concerned, his lack of experience and degree of incompetence has nothing to do with his color. In fact, he was given a pass because of his color and the historic occasion of being the first black president. And, his arrogance, corruption, and incompetence transcends even that of former President Jimmy Carter, the father of Iranian Islamo-fascism.

Bottom line …

We all have grammar, spelling, punctuation, and capitalization problems from time-to-time. The trick is to learn from your mistakes, not protest the one who is trying to help you to be a better writer and communicator.

UCLA’s tolerance for race-baiting and political activism is well-known, perhaps second only to Bezerkeley (University of California, Berkeley) or the “Little Red Schoolhouse” to those in the political realm.

If blacks want special privileges – especially when their performance is substandard – they are committing themselves to being a permanent underclass. I would love to know what this student’s major might be as this type of crap does not fly in any of the fact-based hard sciences. That is, unless you are a progressive socialist democrat – and then you can make up the science as necessary to push your political agenda.

Is there any wonder there are so many aggrieved minorities wandering among us? They have been taught by the race-baiters, the grievance industry, and the progressive socialist democrats that their ancestors earned them the right to special privilege. Sorry, but I never owned slaves and my ancestors were an oppressed minority. But, I do not assume the world owes me a life of special privileges and perks. The only privilege I have is freedom – won in part by my Father as he faced down America’s enemies in the brutal fighting in the South Pacific.

Global Warming: Targeting a new energy source to disadvantage Americans and others? (Updated)

UPDATE: December 2, 2013 …

National Academies of Science Study: Fracking Captures 99 Percent of Methane

Containment measures employed by energy production companies capture 99 percent of the methane released by natural gas fracking operations, scientists report in a peer-reviewed study published by the National Academy of Sciences. The study contradicts environmental activist assertions that methane releases during fracking operations negate the substantial reductions in pollutants and carbon dioxide emissions resulting from natural gas-fired electricity.  <Source>

Original Post …

They have demonized carbon dioxide using junk science. They have demonized coal as a gross pollutant. They have demonized nuclear energy. And, since the progressive socialist democrats and communists behind global warming want industrialized nations to scale back their industrial capabilities, economies, and standard of living – with the difference being paid as climate reparations to third-world nations as compensation for “climate damage,” they now move on (pun intended) to demonize methane hydrate crystals in another apocalyptic scenario.

The 'Ticking Time Bomb' That Could Cause Such Rapid Global Warming We'd Be Unable to Prevent Extinction

If, 250 million years ago, you were standing thousands of miles away from what is now Siberia in the first years of the Permian Mass Extension (sic), probably the most you would notice is an odd change in the weather and a reddish hue in the northern sky. What you wouldn’t know, and probably your children wouldn’t even realize –although their grandchildren probably would – is that a tipping point had already been passed, and an extinction – an unstoppable one – was already underway.

Extinction? 

What could get America’s leading experts on climate change to agree on something that the average American has probably never even heard of?

Methane.

Methane is a far more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, and there are trillions of tons of it embedded in a sort of ice slurry called methane hydrate or methane clathrate crystals in the Arctic and in the seas around continental shelves from North America to Antarctica

If enough of this methane is released quickly enough, it won’t just produce “Global warming.” It could produce an extinction of species on a wide scale – an extinction that could even include the human race.

If there is a “ticking time bomb” in our biosphere that could lead to a global warming so rapid and sudden that we would have no way of dealing with it, it’s methane.

“Could” is not a scientific term … and the author does not express a range of probabilities because they would be so low as to be laughable. Do we really think man can curb the global warming that is based on the Sun’s energy output, the Earth’s position relative to the Sun, the Earth’s rotational and precessional dynamics, the Earth’s vulcanology and plate tectonics, the deep sea currents, and the greatest greenhouse gas of all, water vapor? Man has such a small footprint on global climate change over geologic spans as to be a signal lost amid the noise of climate’s natural variability. As for a “ticking time bomb,” I would be more concerned with a major Earthquake or volcanic eruption in the continental United States. Something that even our government can control or even prepare for. They botched Katrina, they botched Sandy Hook – so what do you think they can do about a major regional or planetary catastrophic event? Curse the heavens while waving their arms to and fro?

Perhaps, maybe, possibly, and other weasel words indicating scientists don’t know what caused the mass extinction and there are many theories that are plausible …

Somehow, most of the life on Earth perished in a brief moment of geologic time roughly 250 million years ago. Scientists call it the Permian-Triassic extinction or "the Great Dying" -- not to be confused with the better-known Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction that signaled the end of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Whatever happened during the Permian-Triassic period was much worse: No class of life was spared from the devastation. Trees, plants, lizards, proto-mammals, insects, fish, mollusks, and microbes -- all were nearly wiped out. Roughly 9 in 10 marine species and 7 in 10 land species vanished. Life on our planet almost came to an end.

Scientists have suggested many possible causes for the Great Dying: severe volcanism, a nearby supernova, environmental changes wrought by the formation of a super-continent, the devastating impact of a large asteroid -- or some combination of these. Proving which theory is correct has been difficult. The trail has grown cold over the last quarter billion years; much of the evidence has been destroyed. <Source: NASA>

Did anybody note that all of the hypothetical sources for this catastrophic event are well beyond man’s capability to alter the future by controlling these events?

Another consensus “opinion” by climate activists? 

Our planet has experienced five major extinctions over the past billion or so years, times when more than half of all life has died in a geologically brief period of time, and the common denominator of each one has been a sudden pulse of global warming. Increasingly, it appears that a rapid release of methane played a primary role in each one.

Back in 2002, the BBC documented  how, just in the previous decade, geologists had by-and-large come to the conclusion that a sudden release of methane led to the death of over 95% of everything on Earth during the Permian Mass Extinction. That methane is back, probably in even larger quantities, as life has been so active since the last mass extinction.

I was unaware that the BBC was a peer-reviewed scientific journal of record. “By-and-large” is not science as is a “consensus opinion.”

We laid out the scenario and its possible doomsday implications in a short video titled “Last Hours” a few months ago. Since the world has been recently sensitized about methane, we’re now discovering more and more of it leaking from oil wells, fracking operations, melting permafrost, and even stirred up by Arctic storms.

I wonder if the filmmakers used the Al Gore methodology of distortion and using computer-generated-imaging stock footage from another movie to make their point. Enough with the scenarios based on little more than flawed models. They cannot be supported by observation, experimentation, or any other rational scientific methodology. They remain speculative hypotheses.

Just this week, the EPAreported they may have been underestimating by half the amount of methane being produced by human activity.  Meanwhile, the National Science Foundation just released a report that methane releases from the Arctic have also been underestimated . The caption accompanying their graphic says it all too clearly: “Methane is leaking from the East Siberian Arctic Shelf into the atmosphere at an alarming rate.”

First, the EPA is a demonstrably corrupt agency that has been infiltrated by hard-core socialists and communists. They are doing more damage to our planet and productivity with their unconstitutional rules and regulations than any other government body. Second, what is an alarming rate; and measured against nature’s normal variability, who is becoming alarmed?

Back to carbon dioxide …

While methane does eventually degrade into carbon dioxide, when large amounts are released over a short time period, their effect on global warming can be dramatic, since methane is such a more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide. 

Carbon dioxide in our atmosphere has passed 400 ppm, a number never before seen in human history, but we’ve also never seen methane releases on this order in human history. And, to a large extent, the naturally occurring methane releases are the result of that 400 ppm of carbon dioxide.

Amazing, the majority of the climate model scenarios couldn’t even acknowledge the last 12-15 years of global cooling and generally use a carbon dioxide forcing of two-times the normal atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration, whatever “normal” means in a chaotic variable system.

While many of the methane releases are the result of fossil fuel extraction processes, the most dangerous ones – the ones that could lead to trillions of tons of methane escaping into the atmosphere and driving an extinction event – are from the melting of frozen methane clathrate crystals along the seabeds. And the process that drives that is global warming, principally driven by carbon dioxide.

If we want to avoid an extinction that could approach or even rival some of the five past extinctions that have wiped out so much of life on earth, we must get control, quickly, of our man-made carbon dioxide and methane releases. <Source:The 'Ticking Time Bomb' That Could Cause Such Rapid Global Warming We'd Be Unable to Prevent Extinction>

Socialism and Communism is all about creating and managing scarcity to support political power …

Why is it these “activists” never think technology is the solution to providing more clean energy? Perhaps because that would spur industrialization and further prove that socialism is not a sustainable political philosophy unless you want to control your fellow man? 

You know how NASA scientist James Hansen has characterized continuing to tap Alberta's tar sands as being game over for the climate, thanks to the massive amount of carbon that'd be released in burning them? Well, if that's the case, then therecent news from Japan that a team has successfully extracted gas from methane hydrates from the seafloor isn't good. In fact, if Japan is able to commercially exploit the reserves in six years, as is planned, then it's game over for the climate.

According to the Washington Post, which cites US Geological Survey stats, all the gas hydrates around the world contain "between 10,000 trillion cubic feet to more than 100,000 trillion cubic feet of natural gas." <Source>

Hansen is the proximate cause of all the global cooling-global warming nonsense and has morphed from a researcher to a climate activist supported by Al Gore and other progressive socialist democrats. We can’t have anything that would mean more energy for industrialized nations because that defeats socialism and communism as people respond to abundance instead of suffering under the scarcity of socialism.

Bottom line …

Amazing how these progressive socialist democrats and climate activists acting on their behalf have solved the 250-million year mystery with such certainty as to warrant draconian public policies that enlarge the size and scope of government, raise taxes, fees, and prices, reduce everyone’s standard of living, curtail everyone’s standard of living, and provide for wealth redistribution, based on a speculative hypothesis that has about as much proof as the activist claim that carbon dioxide is responsible for global warming as opposed to nature’s inherent and chaotic variability. And, given the size and scope of the natural phenomena to be controlled or mitigated – can we trust a government that can’t even roll-out a healthcare plan designed and implemented by these same progressive socialist democrats and their communist friends?

Time to throw the progressive socialist democrats out of office in 2014 and return to social, financial, and scientific sanity – where scientists are free to express their opinion without fear of being demonized or losing funding for their jobs and projects.

If methane is such a problem, perhaps we should consider moving to MARS where there is apparently no methane according to NASA.

EARLY THANKSGIVING PRESENT FOR ME: BRYAN SUITS TO REPLACE GERALDO RIVERA ON KABC-790 from 9--12 a.m. in December! (Updated)

Update: Bryan Suits returns to KI-640 AM Saturday 10-12p April 4, 2015

UPDATE: August 17, 2014 -- Bryan Suits tried a revival of his great "Dark Secret Place," a Saturday program that examined a world melting down from his unique military perspective. Unfortunately, the experiment did not work out. So, with characteristic honesty, Bryan tweets ...

I couldn’t be more pleased to find out that Bryan Suits, formerly of KFI’s Dark Secret Place (Saturday 8-10 p.m.), will be going full time (M-F, 89-12a.m.) here in Los Angeles at KABC-790 Talk Radio Probably not all of the Dark Secret Place material that provides an insight into a world melting down and all things military will be covered, but enough to keep me happy. At least we will be getting a truth-teller and not some intellectual liberal snob carrying water for the progressive socialist democrats and their communist buddies. I am also pleased to see that he will replace the uber-liberal Geraldo Rivera whose posturing, theatrics and nonsensical positions make me sick.

Unfortunately, Suits will be competing against the competition-crusher Rush Limbaugh who single-handedly saved A.M. talk radio and is a testament to conservatism in America. Considering that much of Limbaugh’s faithful audience gets tired of the show from time-to-time, Bryan will have a clear shot at picking up that segment of the audience. He is also facing the conservative Dennis Prager. Sort of a trifecta of conservatism. Could this be a conspiracy to kill conservative talk radio by pitting the conservatives against themselves. (Just Kidding???)

Wishing Bryan the best of luck on his new show.

-- steve

P.S. He will probably be available oniHeartRadio, live and probably in podcast.

OBAMA -- SPECTACULARLY PLAYED BY THE IRANIANS OR DECEPTION BY DESIGN …

I have always believed that President Obama and his cadre of progressive socialist democrats view America as part of an evil threat to the rest of the “peace-loving” world, fomenting colonialism to support land and natural resource grabs by evil corporations. And if an anti-America sentiment was not disturbing enough, I have always believed that President Obama and his long-time spiritual mentor, Reverend Jeremiah Wright,  are anti-Israel, anti-Jew, and pro-Islam. Even though Islam is a virulent and malignant cancer that suppresses human rights, freedoms, and is basically intolerant of any religious viewpoint or practice that does not see the state being controlled by a theocracy. With this worldview, myself and others, do not believe that President Obama wants to impose sanctions on Iran, believing that a nuclear Iran would serve to curtail Israeli hegemony in the region.

You must be blind, stupid, and totally ignorant of history, not to believe Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he said, “If the Arabs put down their weapons, there will be peace; if Israel puts down her weapons, there will be no more Israel.” What other country continues to be assaulted daily by rockets while the terrorists demand respect and Israeli territory for a peace that cannot be assured by Islamicists who continue to fight their own religious wars with each other? What other country in the Middle East respects human rights – even to the extent of modifying their rules of engagement to protect citizens – I will not use the term innocent citizens, because they are taught from an early age that Israel is the enemy, Jews are less than human, and the highest honor in their religion is to kill Jews? That is, when they are not killing other Muslims who they regard as worse than infidels, apostates that must die because they recognize a different sect of Islam.

So I must ask myself if President Obama’s alleged deal with Iran is nothing more than a premeditated attempt to allow Iran to become a nuclear power – if it is not already one now.

I say this because I believe that the North Koreans have sold Iran the nuclear technology needed to build a functioning weapon and the last North Korean nuclear test was a “proof of concept” using an Iranian weapons design. Oh, did I mention that there is nothing in the agreement that prevents Iran’s continued development of long-range ballistic missiles – again, in conjunction with North Korea. And, one cannot help but wonder about the contributions of both Pakistan and Russia to Iran’s nuclear ambitions. This is deception by design.

Here is a must-read piece from Alan Caruba, a well-respected journalist, author, and blogger that sets a perspective on this very issue … 

Tuesday, November 26, 2013 -- The Prospect of World War Three

By Alan Caruba

Let me begin by saying that the deal the U.S. struck with Iran on November 24 is so criminally stupid that mobs with torches and pitchforks should be surrounding the White House and Department of State demanding that the President and Secretary of State resign.

How many times does the United States have to make really bad deals with really bad nations? And then call it progress!

In 1994, former President Clinton announced that a deal with North Korea had agreed to “freeze the major elements of its nuclear program.” A new round of talks was scheduled—in Geneva—to dot the i’s and cross the t’s. Virtually the same language was used by President Obama in his late evening announcement of a fundamentally useless, but extremely dangerous agreement with Iran.

Worse than accepting Iran’s deception, it is as if Obama knew nothing of the North Korean deal that subsequently resulted in its development of a nuclear weapon despite some costly bribery exacted for promises it never intended to keep. The worst part of this is Obama’s deception of Congress and the American people. Efforts to grant Iran the status of a new nuclear power had been secretly going on for a year behind the back of Congress.

On hearing of the deal, Rep. Mike Rogers said “That’s the one thing the whole world was trying to stop them from doing,” referring to the permission granted to continue enriching uranium. “We made this mistake in Pakistan. We made this mistake in North Korea. History is a great judge here and great teacher. Why would you make the same mistake to a nation that will proliferate a nuclear arms race in the Middle East if they are successful at getting a nuclear weapon?”

It is important to keep in mind that not just the U.S. is a signatory to this agreement, but also the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia and China. It was facilitated by the European Union. The lessons of history were totally ignored. The sanctions imposed by the United Nations on Iran were ignored.

For years many have taken comfort in the knowledge that, in the past, Israel destroyed the nuclear reactors that were being built in Iraq and more recently in Syria. An attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities was assumed to have the support of U.S. military power in the event that Iran would retaliate either directly or through its terrorist proxies, Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza.

It is clear now that Obama has abandoned Israel as well as Saudi Arabia which also regards Iran as its enemy. Obama has embraced America’s enemy since the Islamic revolution in 1979. He has not brought us closer to peace. He has brought the world closer to World War Three.

I am not a military strategist, but one need not be to understand Israel’s peril or the limits on its ability to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, many of which are underground or heavily defended.

Here are some comparisons:

Iran has a population of 78,868,711. Israel has a population of 7,765,700.

Of these, those fit for military service are 39,556,497 in Iran and 2,511,190 in Israel.

Comparing active military personnel, Iran has 545,000 and Israel has 187,000.

Iran has 650,000 in military reserves. Israel has 565,000.

Iran’s annual defense budget (in USD) is $10,687,000,000 and Israel’s is $15,209,000,000.

The comparison of their military capabilities is equally daunting. A sobering analysis is offered on the website of the Jewish Virtual Library.

Even if Israel were to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, it would also have to fend off massive rocket attacks from Hezbollah and Hamas.

What defies Obama’s reasoning is Iran’s long history of attacks on the West. It has specialized in taking hostages, initially in Lebanon from 1984 through 1992. It seized the American embassy in 1979 and held American diplomats for 444 days. It holds an American cleric as this is being written.

In 2011, the U.S. discovered that Iran had conceived and funded a plot to assassinate Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the U.S. in Washington, D.C. At the time, the State Department said that the thwarted plot “underscored anew Iran’s interest in using international terrorism—including the United States—to further its foreign policy goals.”

Obama’s ability to thwart Iran’s nuclear ambitions and its intent to become a Middle East hegemon through diplomacy does not exist.

A race to acquire nuclear arms has begun in the region where Israel and Pakistan already have them, as does India and China. Saudi Arabia has announced its intent to secure nuclear weapons.

One can only conclude that this interim agreement is a repeat of the appeasement that occurred in Munich when European nations sought a similar agreement with the Nazi regime. The lessons of history are unforgiving.

Bottom line …

President Obama and his Administration has a pattern and practice of aiding our enemies and disadvantaging our friends and allies. One might suppose that Obama’s lack of foreign policy and the failures of the Obama Administration may be considered to be incompetence and ineptitude. But, then again, perhaps not. Here is a President who lies openly and repeatedly to the American people, with little or no fear of the consequences. Who will oppose him? The progressive socialist democrats in the Senate will insure that he will never be found guilty after an impeachment in the House of Representatives. His buddy, Attorney General Eric Holder, will manage any investigation and prevent prosecution for any crimes, be they high crimes and misdemeanors, or ordinary crimes relating to cronyism and corruption. And, the progressive mainstream media will cover it all up, place a positive spin on damning events, or simply bury the news on the back pages.

It is a sad thing, not to trust your President’s patriotism and your government’s intentions. But, it is a necessity given Obamacare, Benghazi, the IRS scandal interfering with a presidential election, and the NSA spying. Time to throw the progressive socialists out of office and return Constitutional checks and balances to our government. Eliminate the imperial presidency and plan now to elect conservatives and others in the 2014 congressional election cycle. Before we find that we must fight a nuclear war in the Middle East.
