IS GORE'S PROFIT MACHINE BASED ON THE BIG LIE: GLOBAL WARMING IS MAN MADE?

Al Gore's Profit Machine...

The ONLY man-made thing connected with Gore's Global Warming Warning is Al Gore's profit machine: a tax exempt foundation that allows the former Vice President to travel the world in the style of a billionaire while he continues to spread his "global warming" propaganda.

Gore on 60 Minutes...

In a 60-Minutes interview (to be Broadcast Sunday Evening on March 30th) with correspondent Leslie Stahl, Gore continues to claim that global warming skeptics are in a tiny, tiny minority like those who believe the moon landing was staged in a movie lot in Arizona and the earth is flat.

The $300 million advertising campaign...

Promoted as a public service program to raise the public's awareness of the global warming issue, the campaign is pure propaganda and showmanship.

Do you really care that people who cannot get along in real life, mostly people who are connected to religious activism and politics, but who are diametrically opposed to each other, sit down and push the global warming mantra?

Do you really care about the opinions of such people as the Reverend Al Sharpton and the Reverend Pat Robertson, Toby Keith and the Dixie Chicks, and Nancy Pelosi and Newt Gingrich? I don't!

I care about the opinions of scientists who make their case in peer-reviewed journals and whose findings are open to discussion and dispute by other reputable scientists who rely on facts, not feelings, and who concede that their computerized mathematical models may be based on questionable assumptions (that is why they are assumptions) and that the outlier results (results way beyond the central data points)  may have little or no statistical relevance or probability when it comes to causal events.

The most egregious example of the political nature of the discussion can be found in the assertion that carbon dioxide; a natural substance that, along with oxygen, is a key ingredient necessary to support life, causes global warming and thus we need to impose carbon caps and controls as well as institute an emissions credit trading scheme to mitigate the man-made damage.

Other than the fact that Al Gore heads a company deeply involved with "green" technology and emissions credits (Generation Investment Management), it is a well-known fact that the effects of carbon dioxide (CO2) as a greenhouse gas is massively dwarfed by the effects of another greenhouse gas (water vapor) which itself is massively dwarfed in effects by solar activity. In fact, considering that CO2 dissolved in the oceans and the CO2 present in the atmosphere is somewhat constant, presents the case that CO2 is part of a self-regulating feedback loop that operates without man's intervention. But the killer idea, which make me crazy, is that man's puny CO2 output, when compared with natural sources such as volcanoes and animal life is a causal agent in global warming. Cyclical warming which has been shown to occur in times prior to the industrial revolution when man's influence was effectively "nil." But the biggest fact overlooked by the global warming proponents is that the rise in carbon dioxide levels precedes the rise in temperature by approximately 600-800 years. Hardly the behavior of a "trigger" causal event which should precede the suggested effect of temperature rise.

What we really know is that the global climate is constantly changing and appears to be cyclical. We do not know where in the cycle we presently are positioned and whether or not the observed changes today are going to increase, decrease or remain static for a brief period of time. The idea that this is a global emergency is ludicrous for all -- except those who want to panic the public into adopting political solutions which may result in the curtailment of our freedoms and in a massive transfer of wealth from the public's pockets to those, like Al Gore, who are promoting global warming for their own interests: power, profits and prestige.

More of the interview...

How noble of Gore to donate his Nobel winnings...

Overlooking the fact that Al Gore's prize is a political one and not to be confused with the Nobel prizes that are awarded for scientific achievement, many people give credit to Gore for donating his prize money to charity.

"Gore’s campaign to make the world more aware of man’s role in global warming won him the Nobel Peace Prize last year."

"He donated the $750,000 prize money to The Alliance for Climate Protection, the non-profit he started to help him on his quest. He and his wife, Tipper, tell Stahl they not only matched the Nobel money with their own, but they are also donating to the organization the significant profits from his book and Oscar-winning documentary film about global warming, 'An Inconvenient Truth.'"

Not so noble when you consider that this is a legal tax dodge to avoid paying the same taxes that you and I must pay each year to fund "special interest" legislation which does very little to accomplish its stated goals. One need only consider the billions that went into funding the "War on Poverty" to realize that most of the money was siphoned off by administrative costs and sweetheart deals with connected insiders.

To "his" greater glory...

"The funds will help The Alliance for Climate Protection execute a new $300 million ad campaign on global warming set to start next week." 

"Some of the ads will feature unlikely alliances to drive home the message that people of all stripes are concerned about global warming."

"These include the Rev. Al Sharpton and the Rev. Pat Robertson, Toby Keith and the Dixie Chicks, and Nancy Pelosi and Newt Gingrich."

Countering the criticism...

Widely criticized for his jet-set lifestyle and large living, Gore attempts to mitigate some of the public relations damage by hosting Leslie Stahl at his Nashville home.

"Stahl also visits the Gore's Nashville home, recently refitted with touches that include roof solar panels that make it more environmentally friendly."

The upcoming election...

"She asks him his feelings on the Supreme Court ruling that handed his opponent, George W. Bush, the electoral votes of Florida and the presidency. Stahl also asks Gore, an uncommitted superdelegate of the Democratic Party, who he supports for his party’s nomination."

Why should Gore even want to become more involved in politics. He has built the perfect profit machine which allows him to travel the world like a billionaire and be feted as a conquering hero wherever he decides to go. The fact that it is based on a "big lie" and that Gore does not answer his critics is almost irrelevant.

What can YOU do?

Gore is continuing to promote the idea that global warming is real, it is man made and it is a real emergency. Make him prove it. Make him open his "costly" fundraising conferences to the press and answer questions posed by expert climatologists.

Do not support any past, present or future political candidate or legislative program that will have severe economic repercussions and which is  based on "computer models" which contain significant flaws. 

Watch Gore's 60-Minutes appearance to see how the media is manipulated into supporting a political position based on very little scientific knowledge.

Check out this site for some surprising information on Al Gore's money machine.

Do not vote for any candidate or current politician who is willing to subvert the safety, security, sovereignty and economic strength of the United States or limit an individual's right of self-defense for their personal philosophy, power, prestige or profits.

UNITED NATIONS CONDEMNS FREEDOM OF SPEECH, FREEDOM OF RELIGION...THE WORLD IN CRISIS?

UPDATE: 04-01-08 WILDERS FORCED TO MODIFY FILM

According to a report by the Associated Press, the creator of the widely-reviled film on the Koran is being forced to remove the Dutch cartoon that led to violent protests due to copyright restrictions. Although a case could be made for "fair usage" based on critical commentary of a social or political nature, it is unknown if such protections exist in that part of the world. It was the Danish Union of Journalists who threatened to sue if the cartoon was not removed. It is still unknown whether the Dutch government will bring charges against Wilders for using "hate speech."

And speaking of "hate speech" and cartoons, here is another example of the Muslim hypocrisy and copyright infringement by "the other side."

Hate Speech Example One...

According to reporting by Haaretz.com...

"Following the 'demise' of the Hamas Mickey Mouse character 'Farfur' at the hands of a belligerent Israeli soldier, Hamas' television station has introduced a Bugs Bunny lookalike who declares "I will eat Jews," a British newspaper reported Wednesday. "

"According to the Daily Mail, Hamas-controlled TV in Gaza has introduced 'Assud', a rabbit, claiming that he sneaked into Gaza from Egypt after the border was breached last month."

"Farfur, the Mickey Mouse lookalike who called for the terror attacks against Jews was beaten to death by an Israel Defense Forces soldier, only to be succeeded by Nahul the bee."

"Nahoul was killed a week later when an Israeli siege prevented him from receiving medical treatment."

"The Hamas TV show faced global condemnation - and the threat of a lawsuit from Disney - before Farfur was taken off the air."

"The newspaper report said that the new show ended with a song, 'We will never recognize Israel, until we liberate our homeland from the Zionist filth.'"

"In the new show, Assud speaks with Saraa, a young girl narrator. 'We are all martyrdom seekers, are we not Saraa?' Assud asks. 'We will sacrifice our souls and everything we own for the homeland,' he says."

"'We will liberate al-Aqsa from the filth of those Zionists,' Saraa replies."

"'I Assud will get rid of the Jews and I will eat them up, Allah willing,' Assud concludes the scene."

Hate Speech Example Two...

From CNSNews.com...

"The Hamas television station that brings anti-Israel propaganda to children is doing it again -- this time with a puppet of President Bush who is killed by a Muslim child."

"Hamas' Al-Aksa satellite television station aired a children's puppet show on Sunday in which the Bush puppet is stabbed to death by a puppet identified as an orphaned child. The child puppet blames Bush for killing his relatives."

"The puppet show is part of a weekly children's program that imitates the news and delivers sermons. A translation was provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute."

"The anti-American message is clear: The President Bush puppet, dressed in an army uniform and black boxing gloves, asks to speak to the child's parents, but the child replies that he is an orphan."

"'You killed daddy in the Iraq war,' the puppet says. 'As for my mom -- you and the criminal Zionists killed her in Lebanon. You and the criminal Zionists also killed my younger and older brothers in the Gaza holocaust. I'm an orphan, you criminal!' the child cries."

"The puppet vows to take revenge on Bush with 'this sword of Islam.'"

"'I have brought thousands [and] thousands of children from Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Afghanistan. You have denied all these children their fathers and mothers. That's why I have come to take revenge on you and on all the criminal traitors who collaborated with you,' he says."

"The child puppet repeatedly stabs Bush, after telling him the White House has been turned into 'a great mosque for the nation of Islam.'" 

So where is Ban ki-Moon and the United Nations' condemnation of these examples of "hate speech?" Or does the anti-American, corrupt and chaotic United Nations only pander to despots?

Which begs the question, why do you not see militant Jews rioting in the streets, destroying their own property and watching Rabbis on public television demand that the program's creators and distributors be beheaded or mutilated? Perhaps because the Jewish religion, teaching and Holy documents all teach peace, tolerance and respect for other ideas and cultures -- unlike Islam which declares itself to be the only way to the "afterlife" and that all unbelievers should be killed or subjugated.

Both examples prove the point of Wilder's film: Islam, as it is being practiced, is intolerant and must be modified if it is to exist and be welcomed into the world community or the jihadists who perverted the religion must be destroyed. There can be no co-existence with evil without selling your soul to the devil. One need only look at the occupation of France by the Nazis in World War II.  

Original Blog Entry...

Once again the United Nations proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that it openly supports anti-human rights concepts and repressive regimes that deny freedom to much of the world's population.

According to Wikipedia...

"The United Nations (UN) is an international organization whose stated aims are to facilitate cooperation in international law, international security, economic development, social progress and human rights issues. The UN was founded in 1945 to replace the League of Nations, to stop wars between nations and to provide a platform for dialogue."

Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion are basic human rights...

As I written before, free speech, by its very nature, is the freedom to say anything you want about any subject, anytime and in any forum.

The only prohibitions are giving false alarm (crying "fire" in a crowded theatre); bearing false witness (libel, slander) and inciting a riot which is contrary to the maintenance of good public order and conduct. Other than that, it is what it is!

In this case it is not the filmmaker that is inciting a riot, it is those that believe that their religion allows them to kill, maim and create havoc with impunity -- all in the name of the "Religion of Peace."

Only despotic regimes, their enablers and apologists fear free speech.  Only the cowardly will apologize to the oppressors and plead for calm when the truth is openly and courageously told.

According to Reuters...

"U.N.'s Ban condemns Dutch film as anti-Islamic"

"U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Friday condemned as 'offensively anti-Islamic' a Dutch lawmaker's film that accuses the Koran of inciting violence.

"Ban acknowledged efforts by the government of the Netherlands to stop the broadcast of the film, which was launched by Islam critic Geert Wilders over the Internet, and appealed for calm to those 'understandably offended by it.'"

"'There is no justification for hate speech or incitement to violence,' Ban said in a statement. 'The right of free expression is not at stake here.'"

Notice how Ban cleverly twists the truth from a true statement in the first part of the paragraph ('There is no justification for hate speech or incitement to violence.") to a demonstrably untrue statement at the end of the paragraph ("The right of free expression is not at stake here.")

There is no doubt in my mind that the right of free expression is EXACTLY what is at stake here! After all, nobody is censoring Ban's comments or demanding a retraction -- only commenting on them; which is as it should be.

"The short film, titled "Fitna," an Arabic term sometimes translated as "strife," intersperses images of the September 11 attacks on the United States and Islamist bombings with quotations from the Koran."

"The film urges Muslims to tear out 'hate-filled' verses from the Koran and starts and finishes with a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammad with a bomb under his turban, accompanied by the sound of ticking."

"Freedom must always be accompanied by social responsibility," Ban said.

Cultural sensitivity as a precursor to defeat?

Coming from North Korea, Ban is probably culturally attuned to the "go along to get along" Asian culture where there is slavish devotion to the "collective" rather than supporting "individual" dissenting acts.

Social responsibility is far different from a required adherence to a social outlook promoted by a political or religious viewpoint.

Is there a point where the United Nations should transcend cultural sensitivity for the greater good? Is there a point when you must speak the truth about any religious book that lacks apparently tolerance for dissenting views and prescribes death for all of those who do not submit?

A diplomatic canard?

"'We must also recognize that the real fault line is not between Muslim and Western societies, as some would have us believe, but between small minorities of extremists, on different sides, with a vested interest in stirring hostility and conflict,' Ban said."

Common sense will tell you that this is not true. If the main religious documents are intolerant of other faiths and demand the execution of those who do not believe and submit, then the religion, as it is practiced, is fundamentally flawed.

There cannot be any other interpretation. If there was another, more enlightened version, religious leaders far and wide would proclaim it from the highest pulpits and condemn those who distorted and denigrated the "official" interpretation. There has been no such outcry among mainstream Muslims or their religious leaders.

One man stands up and tells the truth...

One man, Geert Wilders, a Dutch lawmaker stands up and claims that ISLAM is:

  • not tolerant of free speech;
  • does not recognize any other religion;
  • commands its followers to kill and destroy those who do not harbor and spread the religion's beliefs; and
  • openly promotes itself as the ONLY way to live in this world!

He illustrates his beliefs by juxtaposing passages from the Koran with the acts of violence that they allegedly inspired.

The film is extremely difficult to watch as it contains the 9-11 planes hitting the Twin Towers, the falling body where the choice was being burned alive or jumping to a certain death and the beheading of a captured American.

No Korans were destroyed in the making of this film...

It should be noted that the filmmaker actually goes so far to claim that the sounds of the page tearing was generated by tearing the pages of a telephone book -- so as not to destroy someone's Holy book.

Academy Award?

There is no doubt the film engenders strong emotional responses in its viewers: dismay by some, joy by others. But is that not the purpose of  such a film? If Hollywood had any real guts, they would nominate the film for an Academy Award. After all, it has generated far more viewers in a shorter period of time than most other films of a political nature. Will Sean Penn, Danny Glover, Mike Farrell, Susan Sarandon et. al. stand up for the filmmaker's rights of free speech?

Condemned as being irresponsible...

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned Geert Wilders' film as being  "offensively anti-Islamic."

Why?

Because the extreme elements of Islam, the so-called Islamo-fascists, might turn to murder and mayhem or  participate in riots leading to the widespread destruction of property?

These are the same ignorant and intolerant crazies that show no tolerance for other viewpoints and rioted over the type of "political cartoons" found in most civilized, democratic and free countries. 

Where the individual nations should have prosecuted and deported everyone involved in the disruptive criminal activities, the politicians lacked the courage of their convictions and did nothing but apologize to the perpetrators. Thus insuring "more of the same" outrageous behavior in the future.

Ban Ki-moon is the irresponsible party...

Ban Ki-moon does not seem to openly refute the film's truth or stand up for the filmmaker's freedom to put forth his opinion, but appears to condemn the film project as being "socially irresponsible."

I suggest that Ban Ki-moon is shirking his official duties and he should be convening a United Nations' panel on Islam. They should be charged with a simple task: determining whether or not the main documents of the faith are intolerant of other beliefs, whether or not the religion demands that unbelievers submit or face death -- and whether or not these findings can be tolerated in an ever-shrinking world by those who respect the human rights of freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of assembly?

Judging for yourself...

According to CNSNews.com...

"The film juxtaposes graphic images of Islamist terrorism -- including bombings and beheadings -- with verses from the Koran, footage of Muslim clerics endorsing violence, and newspaper headlines dealing with various aspects of radical Islam."

"In recent months reports on the planned film, entitled Fitna (an Arabic word in the Koran translated as "strife" or "ordeal"), have prompted reactions in the Islamic world ranging from allegations of blasphemy and diplomatic maneuvers to angry street demonstrations."

"European authorities warned of more violence to come, and the Dutch government urged Wilders to drop the plan. Dutch television channels declined to broadcast his film."

"Wilders' earlier attempts to post the movie on a Web site he registered for that purpose ran into trouble when the U.S.-based hosting company suspended it, citing complaints, even though the site was merely a holding page with no accessible content."

The Americans refuse to host the film...

The American firm Network Solutions, once the top Internet firm in the world, posted this notice on the www.fitnathemovie.com website:

"This site has been suspended while Network Solutions is investigating whether the site's content is in violation of the Network Solutions Acceptable Use Policy. Network Solutions has received a number of complaints regarding this site that are under investigation. For more information about Network Solutions Acceptable Use Policy visit the following URL: http://www.networksolutions.com/legal/aup.jsp"

Far from respecting the rights of authors, filmmakers and others to enjoy American freedoms, Network Solutions seems to be waffling about the propriety of posting this material -- although it had little comment about the number of sites that feature similarly objectionable pornography --which is also offensive to a large number of religious people.

A British firm, LiveLeak, steps up...

"The right-wing lawmaker subsequently succeeded in getting the film posted on the British video sharing site, LiveLeak. Despite a few hitches overnight, as of early Friday morning (U.S. eastern daylight time) the English version had been viewed more than 2.5 million times and the Dutch one 2.7 million times, according to figures on the site."

"LiveLeak said in a statement it did not endorse the views expressed in the film, and that many of those involved with the site found some of the material offensive. But, it added, 'our being offended is no reason to deny Mr. Wilders the right to have his film seen. Pre-emptive censorship or a discriminatory policy towards freedom of speech are both things we oppose here.'"

LiveLeak relents under serious threats...

"Following threats to our staff of a very serious nature, and some ill-informed reports from certain corners of the British media that could directly lead to the harm of some of our staff, LiveLeak.com has been left with no other choice but to remove Fitna from our servers," the site LiveLeak.com said in a statement.

Here is their withdrawal statement...

This video is "proof positive" that there is no such thing as a moderate Muslim and that the vocal and vicious majority hold sway over the complicit mass of so-called "moderates" -- if they even exist.

You cannot blame LiveLeak, a private company without the physical protections of a governmental agency, for choosing employee safety over an adverse outcome. Which clearly makes it a governmental matter to protect its citizens from terrorism and terrorist acts.

The world in crisis? 

Which leaves us with the question: should all threats made against the film's creator and distributors be treated as "terrorist" threats and subject those who are guilty of making these threats to the severest punishment available under the law?

Can a rational society, a free society, a tolerant society permit any single religion to so dominate its actions as to constitute a clear and present threat to the very fabric of democratic freedom?

If these threats should be treated as terrorist activities and society, collectively, determines that the practice of a single religion is inimical to and orderly society, what might be the next likely steps to contain the spreading contagion or moderate its viewpoint?   

Had it not been for the profligate wealth of certain oil-bearing countries, this issue would have been contained to the Middle East... but now threatens to explode onto the world stage ... perhaps as the foundation for WW III.

And, what greater demonstration of the wisdom of our founding fathers when they wrote the Second Amendment.

THE "JOKER" SUPPORTS HILLARY: WOULD YOU TAKE ADVICE FROM A MALEVOLENT CLOWN OR A PSYCHOTIC SOLDIER?

Jack Nicholson, uses his famous characterizations to promote Hillary Clinton's candidacy for the President of the United States...

The Joker... money, money, money -- who can you trust? Answer: Certainly not Hillary Clinton whose pursuit of money has landed her in a number of scandals.

Colonel Jessep on patriotism... why would I believe a man playing soldier any more than I would believe Tom Cruise playing a lawyer/soldier?

Phoniness and media cuteness glossing over the real problems:

  • national defense - she would retreat with dishonor
  • economy -- Hillary is for  a tax and spend big government
  • immigration -- welcome aboard, here's your drivers license and voter registration for the democrat party
  • healthcare -- the government will decide what healthcare you get and which doctors you get it from. Hillary would build the world's largest HMO.

But you get the idea -- this is not about image and acting -- it is about real life -- YOUR life. And there are no second takes.

So watch the video and enjoy Nicholson for the fine actor he is -- remembering Hillary is also acting -- trying to portray a moderate, sensible person...which we all know from past experience -- is just acting!

(This video will not play on e-mail blog copies -- please return to the web site should you wish to view the video)

But take a look the the "real" Jack Nicholson...

  • "In his adult personal life, Nicholson has been notorious for his inability to 'settle down'", with a place on Maxim's 'Top 10 Living Legends of Sex.'"
  • "He has allegedly slept with 2,000 women."
  • "He has five children by four different women; he was married once. "
  • "He has been romantically linked to numerous actresses and models, including Michelle Phillips, Bebe Buell, and Lara Flynn Boyle."
  • "Nicholson's longest relationship was for 17 years to actress Anjelica Huston, from 1973 to 1989, the daughter of film director John Huston. However, the relationship ended when the news reported that Rebecca Broussard had become pregnant with his child."
  • "He is also a close friend of film director Roman Polanski, whom he has supported through many personal crises including the death of his wife, Sharon Tate, at the hands of the Manson Family. He also supported Polanski through his conviction for statutory rape, a crime which took place on the Nicholson estate on Mulholland Drive."
  • "Nicholson lived next door to Marlon Brando for a number of years on Mulholland Drive in Beverly Hills. Warren Beatty also lived nearby, earning the road the nickname 'Bad Boy Drive'. "
  • "During a road rage incident in 1994, he allegedly smashed another driver's car window with a golf club."
  • "On February 4, 2008, he announced his endorsement of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton in her race for the President of the United States."

As much as I respect Jack Nicholson's career achievements, his fame, fortune and chaotic life place him outside the realm of normal family values or even anything remotely resembling a normal life.   

Perhaps his endorsement would have meant more to me if he had endorsed Bill Clinton as they seem to share a chaotic, sex-filled life. There Nicholson has some credibility.

But why would I take the word of an actor, a person paid to speak the words of another with convincing emotion, who is completely foreign to the "real world of ordinary people" and its problems?

"You can't handle the truth!"

A line perfectly and emotionally delivered by Nicholson as the uber-Colonel Nathan R. Jessep in "A Few Good Men." But a line written by Aaron Sorkin of "West Wing" and "American President" fame. A man given to crafting images of friendly, caring politicians -- something Hillary works hard at pretending to be.

But the cold, hard truth -- if you can handle it -- is that Hillary is a polarizing figure, hated by close to half the nation. Her lawyer background is pervasive in almost everything she does. And no other first lady has even been associated with so much chaos, confusion, illegality and manipulation of the lives of others... often to their detriment. She is cold, calculating, shrill and vindictive.

And if you can handle a little more truth... Hillary seems to be an amoral, far-left socialist that will do or say anything to be elected.

Perhaps Hillary should have replaced campaign adviser Mark Penn with writer Aaron Sorkin to make her seem more human.

What can YOU do?

Enjoy the entertainment of fine actors such as Jack Nicholson, but do not let "cute" commercials sway your judgement. After all, would you take advice from a clown -- or even a man who plays a clown?

Don't be manipulated by the media masters who want to control a politicians image up to the point the politician is forced to deal with a real crisis on the world stage. The very last place you want a "make believe" actor taking emotional or spontaneous action."

Do not vote for any candidate or current politician who is willing to subvert the safety, security, sovereignty and economic strength of the United States or limit an individual's right of self-defense for their personal philosophy, power, prestige or profits.

WHAT SEAN PENN, DANNY GLOVER & THE REST OF THE PEOPLE WHO PANDER TO DICTATORS CAN LEARN FROM PRESIDENT BUSH!

He may be somewhat clumsy and inarticulate, but then again President Bush is not a trained performer who must convey sincerity and emotion while regurgitating the words someone else wrote and polished for delivery. There are no multiple takes.

So no matter what the so-called Hollywood far-left thinks of our President, he IS the President and they are only interloping dupes who are being used to generate favorable publicity to prop up these miscreant dictators.

So while Sean Penn may be a notable actor/director, he is a committed leftist dupe following in his father's radical footsteps. A modern day Jane Fonda giving aid and comfort to our enemies -- and the enemies of humanity.

So in case anybody does not understand the issues involved, here is our President, George Bush, clearly explaining how it all works in a press conference.

So before you condemn our President for the actions he has taken in the past, you might want to give him some credit for bringing a little more compassion and freedom into a harsh world.

And for you far-left dupes... pay attention: you might actually learn something of the real world.

HOW DO RINOs MATE? Terminator Schwarzenegger backs McCain

A match made in heaven. Two RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) who have a record of collaborating with democrats on their fiscally irresponsible and socially-engineered programs have joined forces.

My only question is what promises were made to Schwarzenweasel to obtain his endorsement. A prestigious Ambassadorship so that he continue his jet-set life style by wining and dining other politicians in exotic locations or maybe a presidential cabinet appointment as the "Secretary of Something."

From Breitbart News....

"Terminator Arnie will back McCain"


"Hollywood star turned California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is giving his backing to Republican presidential hopeful John McCain.
The endorsement will be a major boost in a narrowed race heading into next week's pivotal nomination contests in over 20 states."

Answer: Very, Very Carefully!

What can YOU do?

Remember: Schwarzenegger is NO HERO -- he only plays one in the MOVIES where he spouts pre-written lines.

Remember Schwarzenegger's attempt to sell-out the State of California to the democrats and failure to control democratically-controlled State spending which resulted in a $14 BILLION deficit. The terminator apparently supports citizenship for illegal aliens when politically expedient.

And don't forget McCain's attempt to promote the democrat agenda and sell-out the America with his SHAMnesty (McCain-Kennedy) legislation.

Both of these RINOs should be retired instead of elected. Consider Mitt Romney as the more suitable candidate for your vote.

Do not vote for any candidate or current politician who is willing to subvert the safety, security, sovereignty and economic strength of the United States or limit an individual's right of self-defense for their personal philosophy, power, prestige or profits.

Dr. Phil visits Britney Spears: Media Whore Publicity Stunt?

UPDATE: 01/18/08 - New York Post

"DR. Phil, who is reportedly under investigation by the California Board of Psychology for practicing without a license in Britney Spears' lastest flipout, may be off the hook."

"California authorities are compelled to investigate any time a complaint is filed."

"But McGraw's visit to Spears in the hospital earlier this month has turned into a huge embarassment for the TV shrink."

"The complaint alleges McGraw, who does not hold a license to practice psychology in California, violated doctor-patient privilege by discussing the pop tard's case with the media."

"But the reported investigation may not last long or go very far, officials say."

"Dr. Phil would have violated state law only if he charged Spears or her family for his services, according to state regulations."

"McGraw is also not licensed to practice psychology in Texas, his home state, because of disciplinary sanctions imposed by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists in 1989. A former therapy client had filed a complaint against him, claiming their relationship was inappropriate. He later admitted giving her a job but denied touching her."

Just asking: does the law cover payments from the doctor to the patient's family or does it require payment from the patient to the doctor as is the normal course of business?

UPDATE: 01/08/08 - Life & Style Weekly

"Britney Spears’ dad Jamie Spears has angrily banned the family from any involvement or participation with Dr. Phil’s planned Britney-intervention episode, a source linked to Dr. Phil's camp tells Life & Style."

“As soon as Jamie realized Dr. Phil was making public statements about Britney, including assessments of her condition, he got angry. He started making phone calls to everybody in the family, telling them not to cooperate with Dr. Phil.

“Jamie was totally incensed that Dr. Phil—who he knows a little, because Lynne is friends with Dr. Phil’s wife—seemed to be using Britney for self-promotion."

“Dr. Phil had told Jamie everything would be off the record until the show was done."

Meanwhile Dr. Phil is accusing the tabloid press of being hypocritical when reporting on his plans to "help" Britney.

No wonder Britney is experiencing problems. Even her own family appears to be merchandising her for their own gain. Looks like the father was more upset at the pre-show publicity than he was in agreeing to participate in this charade. Her is a talented person apparently experiencing problems and there does not appear to be a single person in her life that she can trust!

UPDATE: 01/07/08 - Associated Press...

"Television's "Dr. Phil" McGraw has pulled the plug on plans for a one- hour show that was to examine Britney Spears' latest public meltdown."

"In a statement posted Monday on his Web site, McGraw said the 26-year- old pop star's situation was "too intense" for him to go forward with the show. He didn't say whether he planned to reschedule."

Translation: Britney blew him off!

UPDATE: 01/07/08 - CBS: The Early Show

Dr. Phil -- I have maintained a running dialog with her family throughout the last year. Britney's mom is apparently friends with Dr. Phil's wife, Robin. The Early Show reporter claimed that Dr. Phil was very sensitive to Britney's needs in this situation and was reluctant to give us a lot of information about their conversation

If he had any sense of decency or professionalism -- he would not have issued a press release to tease his interview or mention the possibility of a Britney appearance on his show.

Can Britney get an honest opinion?

Is it any wonder that pop singing sensation Britney Spears is apparently experiencing psychological problems? It seems everyone in her immediate vicinity is trying to capitalize on Spear's media attention or is trying, in some manner, to get on the gravy train.

She apparently is enabled and stroked by all those who are attempting to cash-in at Britney's expense.

In my humble (ok, not so humble) opinion, those who are seeking to promote their own agendas on the back of Spear's misfortune are despicable.  Yes, I do recognize my apparent hypocrisy in mentioning this in my blog -- but like I have said on numerous occasions, this blog is my reaction to otherwise shouting at the television screen or pounding the dashboard of my car. (check the very end of this blog before judging)

Britney is physically located between two world-class hospitals, Cedars-Sinai Hospital and the UCLA Medical Center. Also nearby is St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica. All of which have resident and outpatient medical and psychological services.

Enter Dr. Phil...

While Dr. Phil does have a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from North Texas State University, he also is the host of a talk show based on fast, pop-psychological cures similar to the "rapid diagnosis and generalized advice" of the late Dr. David Viscott who was convinces that all you had to do to cure your problems was recognize your problem and then resolve to do something else.

About Dr. Viscott...

"In 1980 Viscott began presenting his own full-time show on talk radio, and was notably one of the first psychiatrists to do so (talk station KABC). He screened telephone calls and gave considerable amount of free psychological counseling to his on-air 'patients.'"

"In 1987 Viscott briefly had his own live syndicated TV show, Getting in Touch with Dr. David Viscott, providing much the same service as his radio show. In fact, the shows ran concurrently. In the late 1980s he had a weekly call-in therapy television program on KNBC in Los Angeles early Sunday morning after Saturday Night Live."

"Viscott's style of counseling was hard-hitting yet compassionate, and he often isolated an individual's source of emotional problems in a very short amount of time. Many of his books were of a self-help nature, written to assist the individual with his/her own examination of life."

Sound familiar?

Known for his confrontational style and physically intimidating stance, one questions whether or not any association between Dr. Phil and Britney Spears could be beneficial given that Dr. Phil may not be able to devote the type of time and attention that Britney deserves.

For more about the Oprah Winfrey-created "pop psychologist" Dr. Phil McGraw, it is suggested that you read the Wikipedia article here. It is not as flattering as one might believe from Dr. Phil's publicity.

Questioning the need to publicize his brief meeting with Britney...

According to the Associated Press...

"Television's "Dr. Phil" McGraw said Britney Spears was released from a hospital Saturday but still needs psychological help, the syndicated programs 'Entertainment Tonight' and 'The Insider' reported in a press release."

"The troubled pop star was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center by paramedics Thursday night after police were called to her home because of a dispute involving the two sons she had with ex-husband Kevin Federline."

"My meeting with Britney and some family members this morning in her room at Cedars leaves me convinced more than ever that she is in dire need of both medical and psychological intervention," McGraw told the programs.

"'She was released moments before my arrival and was packing when I entered the room. We visited for about an hour before I walked with her to her car. I am very concerned for her,' he said."

"McGraw planned to talk more about Spears on his daytime talk show this week, the press release said."

"Responding to an e-mail request for further comment from McGraw, a "Dr. Phil" publicist referred The Associated Press to his statement posted on the etonline.com Web site. "

Dr. Phil: Highlighting "Publicity vs. Professionalism..."

"Medical center officials have had no comment on Spears, and authorities have given no full explanation of why she was hospitalized."

Even if Dr. Phil was present as a friend or at the request of Spear's somewhat estranged family, he should have kept his thoughts to himself out of respect for Britney and in keeping with some form of medical professionalism.

What can YOU do?

Should you be experiencing any medical or psychological symptoms, always consult an appropriate medical professional who is bound by the doctor-patient privilege and will not further increase your apparent distress by publicizing your condition.

It is far smarter to start with a psychiatrist (a medical doctor) who can rule out physiological causes before proceeding on to counseling with a psychotherapist.

Be wary of accepting advice from any professional who seems more show-biz promotional than professional. Buying self-help books or potions from these characters is often worthless unless you have already made a commitment to take personal responsibility for your situation and commit to personal action to resolve the situation. If you are unable to do it on your own, as so many of us may be, professional help is necessary.

Be extremely wary of accepting the advice from anyone being billed as a "something professional to the stars." One need only open their eyes to see how screwed up these stars may be once the cameras stop rolling and they are confronted with dealing with their privileged and pampered life. Most are malignant narcissists who believe that "everything is about them." If they hit your car, they often become irate and question why are you inconveniencing them by being in the wrong place at the wrong time?"

Recognize that most professionals who have turned into performers are driven by an agenda that only tangentially concerns their subjects... and only to the extent where their subject's association and success is reflective of their activities.

DIVA POWER: CELEBRITIES GOING POLITICAL TO ENHANCE THEIR REPUTATIONS?

Most celebrities are like little children: they will do and say anything which brings them attention and seems to enhance their position on the world stage. Some of them may actually believe the tripe that they are spewing and actually like the candidates that they promoting.

In her latest foray into the political limelight, diva Barbra Streisand and notorious FOB (Friend of Bill) now claims that she has anointed Hillary Clinton as her choice for the democrat presidential candidate. According to the pundits, the real story may be "How close a friend Streisand was to Bill Clinton and was she alone in the Lincoln Bedroom?" For a list of the others who were granted this privilege, the list can be found here.

Unfortunately, as great as her talent as a singer, Streisand's sometime incoherent thoughts on politics appear to mark her as a featherweight on substantive issues and more of a follower of political candidates than serious observer of our currently troubled times.

Of course, Oprah Winfrey, a significant star with a tremendous amount of talent, is backing Barack Obama. I would be interested in knowing why Oprah believes why a junior Senator with little or no real life political and governance experience is worthy of her significant endorsement. I would like Oprah to step out of character and explain why her support goes beyond the obvious "race" issue.

And then you have George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck, Alec Baldwin, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, Alec Baldwin, and the other wing nuts such as Sean Penn and Danny Glover.

It is still extremely difficult for me to believe that their support of the political system is any more than an extension of their narcissistic "it's all about me" tendency to stay in the spotlight while appearing politically knowledgeable and "relevant."  A mutual lovefest between the candidates who will do and say anything to reel in large political donors with superb media access and the easily corrupted stars.

Streisand spins her own version of reality...

To find out what Streisand thinks of herself and other news, one should really visit her blog's "Truth Alert Section." (You may be able to spot the entries that weren't written personally as her entries usually contain misspellings and grammatical errors as well as lack of subject matter knowledge.) Here is one of my favorite posts...

"What did the Republicans 'Drudge' Up Today?"

"The Distortion"

"STREISAND BOUGHT 800 SHARES OF CHENEY'S HALLIBURTON "
Drudge Report, October 3, 2002

Matt Drudge in his report stated "Streisand bought and traded 800 shares of Halliburton while Dick Cheney was its Chief Executive."

"The Truth"

"WHAT DID THE REPUBLICANS 'DRUDGE' UP TODAY?"

"How low will Republicans stoop to try to stifle the voice of singer, director, actress, activist Barbra Streisand? Today's low blow has them rummaging through the tax returns of her charitable foundation. The Streisand Foundation gives away money to organizations that work to protect the environment, our civil liberties, the rights of women and children, and fight against nuclear proliferation. The Streisand Foundation's money is handled by an outside investment adviser who, at his discretion, buys and sells stocks and bonds to support the foundation. Unfortunately, since this administration took over, the foundation has lost hundreds of thousands of dollars that would otherwise go to worthwhile causes. Before Dick Cheney became Vice President, 800 shares of Halliburton were purchased for the foundation in April of 1999. All were sold in 2000 with a loss of $1,288 dollars."

Apparently Drudge had the item right and all Streisand offers is further confirmation of the underlying facts while attempting to spin the story to her advantage. How typical of a limousine liberal to portray herself as a victim of a press attack -- and then attribute the attack to the Republican Party?

About the stock picking issue -- does anybody believe that the legendarily "cheap" Streisand does not watch over her own investments with a gimlet eye?

From her own blog... (8/5/99)...

New York Post Again Misrepresents Streisand Investments - "Barbra's Sinking Feeling"

"The many fans of Barbra Streisand may have to start passing the hat. On June 23, I reported that the diva's self-managed stock portfolio had sunk by 15 percent since she was written up as an investment maven by Fortune magazine. Well, things have gotten worse. Barbra's investments are now down 32.5 percent since our benchmark date of April 30. In the same period, the Dow Jones was off only 1.4. percent and the Nasdaq was up 1.8 percent."

"TRUTH"

"They are wrong again...very wrong! In fact, the portfolio that Ms. Streisand personally manages continues to outperform the S&P 500 index by more than double. Most of the country's professional money managers haven't been able to beat the S&P at all! The New York Post, a conservative newspaper, obviously wants to discredit Ms. Streisand's intelligence. Maybe they are anticipating her supporting Democrats in the upcoming elections. "

Again, Streisand is the victim of scurrilous press coverage. But does she understand that this blog post also seems to confirm the personal nature of her stock choices?

In Hollywood it is all about the triumph of style over substance, where perception trumps reality. In short it is always about: ME ME ME ME ME ME!  Or as the old joke goes: "Enough about me, what do you think of my watch?"

What can YOU do?

Remember, with celebrities, it is all about them and their feelings. They are continually preening and seeking media coverage. Being associated with political parties only enhances their media "face time" and allows them to capitalize on political perks should their party or candidate win.

A famous director once said, just because you have a large megaphone, it makes you loud -- but not necessarily right!" Celebrities with the media exposure, some would argue overexposure, are loud -- but you must judge for yourself if they are right.

Do not support any celebrity who makes anti-American statements on foreign soil. Statements which can be used by America's enemies as they propagandize their corrupt regimes. The classic example: Jane Fonda, the modern-day Tokyo Rose," sitting on an anti-Aircraft gun deployed to kill Americans and waffling about peace in enemy territory (North Vietnam) in apparent support of the Communist  regime -- while John McCain was being tortured in prison. Consider the visits to Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez to be tantamount to, at least in my mind, aiding and abetting the enemy.

Do not confuse the celebrity's life with any of the scripted roles they may play. Many celebrities are brilliant performers who infuse the brilliant efforts of the writers with believability, but in reality are dumb as rocks. It is the job of their advisors and handlers to keep them in the limelight, lest their personal and professional retinue find themselves unemployed.

A telling truth is exposed in this riddle: When is a star, not a star? It is the answer, "When there is a bigger star in the room"  that is close to placing the phenomenon of celebrity in its proper perspective.

Do not vote for any candidate or current politician who is willing to subvert the safety, security, sovereignty and economic strength of the United States or limit an individual's right of self-defense for personal power, prestige or profits.

SCHWARZENEGGER: DON'T TELL ME YOU ARE NOT A LIBERAL DEMOCRAT

Almost everybody recognizes California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as a RINO (Republican In Name Only), a narcissistic ego-driven pragmatic  liberal who ONLY wants to win and look good in the media. A political movie star seeking adulation.

When he ditched his running mate for Lieutenant Governor, Tom McClintock, an extremely knowledgeable, honest, ethical and conservative Republican and named a long-time liberal lesbian democrat as his Chief of Staff, the handwriting was on the wall. It didn't seem to matter that she was the chief of staff to his re-called predecessor, Gray Davis, or that there were a number of well-qualified Republicans who could have assumed the position. And apparently he has even outdone him in terms of  seeking campaign contributions and spending the California taxpayer's hard-earned money on questionable projects.

Now, London's number one news website, the Telegraph, has listed Schwarzenegger as the 8th most important liberal in the United States. Thus confirming what I believe to be true.

Preceding him on the list are:

Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Mark Penn (Hillary's Campaign Advisor), Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama and Michael Moore.

Following him on the list are: Oprah Winfrey, Evan Bayh, John Podesta and others known to be staunch liberals.

Even the Telegraph could not, in apparent good conscience, list Schwarzenegger as a conservative. Here's what they had to say...

8. ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER
Governor of California

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER

"Leaving him off the conservative list was a difficult decision but Schwarzenegger’s defiance of Republican orthodoxy and move towards California liberalism leaves him better placed to influence the liberal sphere. Even unstinting Schwarzenegger support of a Rudy Giuliani general election campaign in California would be unlikely to deliver the state to Republicans. His marriage to Maria Shriver took him into the Kennedy clan."

"As an Austrian-born immigrant, the former body builder and action movie star is barred from the presidency, though he has not ruled out a run for the US Senate in 2010 if Barbara Boxer retires. Schwarzenegger’s actions to combat global warming have prompted an alliance with Tony Blair and are likely lead to his working more closely with Al Gore. For any Democrat entering the Oval Office, one of the first calls will be to Schwarzenegger."

No one could have written it better. In spite of his recent publicity triumph as the "leader making it happen" in the recent tragic California wild fire scene -- shaking hands on-camera with  President Bush and a host of democrat leaders, he walks, talks and preens like a liberal democrat.

Unlike most democrats, he is able to bring a fair degree of intelligence to the table and is not your traditional "style over substance" democrat.

While I wish him well as my Governor, I also wish that he would forget California and run for Teddy Kennedy's Massachusetts Senate seat. He would make me, much of California and certainly First Lady Maria  much happier campers. 

What can YOU do?

Become informed, vote informed. Here is some recommended reading for anyone interest in politics is London Daily Telegraph's informative lists.

"As the US prepares for what is arguably the most open presidential election since 1928, the last time there was no incumbent president or vice-president on the ballot, the Daily Telegraph's Washington correspondents compile a list of the 100 most influential liberals and conservatives in America. "

Do not vote for any candidate or current politician who is willing to subvert the safety, security, sovereignty and economic strength of the United States or limit an individual's right of self-defense for personal power, prestige or profits.

CONSIDER AN AL GORE WORLD...

Where our sworn enemies would have access and inspection rights to all of our energy producing plants and distribution centers through an agency of the mostly anti-American United Nations or one of their commissions. Foreign operatives could roam the United States, almost at will, to observe and enforce energy policies. Of course they would be accompanied by United States government personnel thus creating an even larger energy control bureaucracy.

Additional inspections could occur in almost all industries as pollutants are added to the monitored list.

Any energy producer not conforming to the dictates of the foreign-based energy commission would be subjected to hearings on foreign soil before a duly constituted tribunal composed of members selected and/or appointed by the United Nations members.

Penalties in the forms of fines, levies and surcharges could be imposed on our energy producers and distributors. After an appeal process, judgement could be enforced in and by United States Courts. If you do not believe this can happen, check out the Microsoft issue with the European Union which forced Microsoft to provide proprietary program code and connectivity to their programs so that European competitors could also link into their systems.

Gross polluters could mitigate a portion of their hazardous pollutants simply by purchasing carbon offset credits. They would be allowed to pollute the local environment, secure in the knowledge that their legally acquired offset credits from organizations running forests in Hungary would protect them from further sanctions. The local citizens will still be poisoned -- but it will be for a good cause?

Based on suspect science, people will be mitigating CO2 (which is processed by green plants to produce life-giving oxygen) which is not a major greenhouse gas while ignoring killer pollutants like heavy metals and the oxides of nitrogen and sulfur which form lung-busting smog and acid rain.

Additional costs would be passed along to the ratepayers as a regressive rate hike affecting those who could least afford it.

The government would share in the additional revenue stream through taxes collected on the gross amount of the higher energy bills. In addition, they would have almost dictatorial powers over American citizens and organizations through their Agencies and Commissions.

The creators and packagers of offset credits, as well as the middlemen traders, would make uncountable millions as they use an Enron-style trading system to maximize their profits.

And, as usual, while the rich get richer, the ordinary citizen gets screwed. And poisoned to boot.

Our economy, hobbled under energy constraints starts to decline.

Programs are introduced to provide funds, expertise and equipment to developing nations. Pollution task forces are constituted and deployed to nations such as India and China. Along with the burdensome costs of the United Nations bureaucracy which will be mostly supported by U.S. taxpayer funds.

Of course, hard-line regimes such as those found in countries such as China, Russia, North Korea and others ruled by dictators and thugs could simply refuse to cooperate or lie about their energy policies. With the rampant corruption in the United Nations, bribes and "go along to get along" bonuses, bribes and blackmail would flourish.

The United States might be forced to adopt the government's SPP (Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America) plan to form a "North American Union" to promote trade with the other two trading blocks: the European Union and the Asian Union. Of course,  areas like  Africa would continued to be plundered for their natural resources by all "freebooters" as usual. Australia might be abandoned as it does not fit cleanly into any of the above trading consortiums.

And it can get worse...

NOBEL COMMITTEE DISGRACE: REWARDS SCIENTIFIC LIES & HYPOCRISY

The world is sinking to new lows. A world where relatively unimportant politicians lie and distort reality and then are rewarded with prizes based more on their politics than their contribution to humanity.

Per the Associated Press...

"OSLO, Norway -- Former Vice President Al Gore and the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize Friday for their efforts to spread awareness of man-made climate change and lay the foundations for counteracting it."

"Gore's film "An Inconvenient Truth," a documentary on global warming, won an Academy Award this year and he had been widely expected to win the prize."

A shameless media whore seeking ever more attention, fed in part by the socialists and communists who see the issue leading to greater political control and wealth distribution...

"His strong commitment, reflected in political activity, lectures, films and books, has strengthened the struggle against climate change," the citation said. "He is probably the single individual who has done most to create greater worldwide understanding of the measures that need to be adopted."

It is so early that we really do not know if it exists at all or it is a form of long-term cyclical activity...

"It cited Gore's awareness at an early stage of the climatic challenges the world is facing."

For hundreds of years, the Catholic Church maintained their position -- even when it was wrong...

"The committee cited the Panel on Climate Change for two decades of scientific reports that have 'created an ever-broader informed consensus about the connection between human activities and global warming.'"

Buying in to a phenomenon which exists solely in a world artificially created by a  computer model...

"The Norwegian Nobel Committee said global warming, 'may induce large-scale migration and lead to greater competition for the earth's resources. Such changes will place particularly heavy burdens on the world's most vulnerable countries. There may be increased danger of violent conflicts and wars, within and between states.'"

There is no doubt that we are seeing the actions of the pampered, effete, elitists who loudly proclaim: "I know best, do what I say, not as I do."

What can YOU do?

Consider the Nobel Peace Prize as becoming increasing irrelevant as they award people and institutions which promote politics over science.

Wish Al Gore the very best of luck -- because he is one of the luckiest people in the world. How he managed to headline  a global scheme to tighten political controls, increase the cost of living for every citizen, and make himself relevant again further demonstrates his luck.

Remember winning a prize does not validate the science or the political proposition behind the prize committee's decision.

Demand that the politicians prove their case about being able to significant alter the weather before letting them reach deep into your pocketbook or try to deprive you of some of your freedoms.

Do not vote for any candidate or current politician who is willing to subvert the safety, security and sovereignty of the United States.

Enjoy the celebration of fools -- as the truth emerges pointing out man's folly in believing he can control nature or freedom-loving Americans.
