The Future Under King Obama

Quoting The Washington Times:

“Reporter Christina Bellantoni of The Washington Times will be kicked off of Barack Obama's campaign plane starting Nov. 2, making it much more difficult to cover the candidate during the critical final days of the election. The Obama campaign insists that politics had nothing to do with it. We note that all three newspapers that had reporters booted from the plane — The Times, the New York Post and the Dallas Morning News — endorsed John McCain. An Obama spokesman insists it is just a coincidence.”
And, if you believe that Obama line, I have some fraudulent ACORN voter registrations to sell you!

Even as Americans toy with the idea of electing a candidate who promises to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in Iraq, the Brits offer up a refreshing dose of sanity.

If Obama is elected, maybe the Brits can keep the world safe until Americans regain their sanity (assuming Obama does not prove to be another Hugo Chavez, leaving us no opportunity to regain our sanity).

An Obama Win Will Be More Than Historic

Quoting Thomas Sowell:
“Some elections are routine, some are important and some are historic. If Sen. John McCain wins this election, it will probably go down in history as routine. But if Sen. Barack Obama wins, it is more likely to be historic — and catastrophic.

Once the election is over, the glittering generalities of rhetoric and style will mean nothing. Everything will depend on performance in facing huge challenges, domestic and foreign.

Performance is where Barack Obama has nothing to show for his political career, either in Illinois or in Washington.

Policies that he proposes under the banner of ‘change’ are almost all policies that have been tried repeatedly in other countries — and failed repeatedly in other countries.”

As disturbing as this assessment is, it only skims the surface of the catastrophe that would result from an Obama-Reid-Pelosi regime.

This is not unreasoned fear mongering from the black helicopter crowd. These are sober assessments from those who are capable of applying critical thinking skills against an understanding of history.

I fear for our country and our world in a way that I have NEVER feared before. It is a well reasoned fear.

Spreading the Wealth and Killing the Goose

Quoting Gregory V. Helvering (a pseudonym) at American Thinker
(I inserted the link):

“John McCain put his finger on an important point: we currently have an extraordinarily progressive income tax, which requires the wealthy (and the relatively wealthy) to bear virtually the entire burden of the income tax. Obama wants to spread the wealth not because the wealthy do not currently bear their fair share of supporting the government. He wants to spread the wealth because he views the wealth itself as unfair.”

“For 2006 (the latest year for which statistics are available), the share of the federal income tax paid by the top 1 percent of tax returns reached an all-time high -- 40% of all federal income taxes. The top 50% paid 97% of the tax. The bottom 50% paid only 3% of it.”

“For progressives, the goal is not ultimately to create more tax revenue for the government, but to equalize the income of the citizenry. So increased taxes from the rich are not a solution if they mean the rich made more money compared to others. In fact, even if the tax cuts end up making the tax system more progressive, that simply exacerbates the problem: the ‘gap’ between rich and poor.”

“Obama believes the main thing is to make the capital gains tax ‘fair,’ regardless of what history shows about the relationship between rates and revenue. He does not appreciate that tax incentives for investing increases the amount of investing, which in turn expands business, creates more jobs and produces more income - and thus more tax.

The JFK tax cuts proved it; the Reagan tax cuts proved it; the capital gains tax cut that a Republican Congress forced on Bill Clinton proved it; and the Bush tax cuts proved it again. It is not a theoretical argument. The latest cold, dry IRS statistics demonstrate it once again.

If Obama is elected next week, we will all be treated to another history lesson about why societies that sought ‘fairness’ by taking massive amounts of money from one part of society to give to another (not simply to fulfill a governmental duty of providing a safety net, but for the affirmative purpose of ‘redistributive change’), not only did not create ‘fairness,’ but in fact made matters significantly worse for everyone.”

Corporate Taxes - Emotional Satisfaction vs. Reality

Here is a heads up to everybody who is voting for Obama or anybody else who advocates for higher business taxes.

Obama’s rhetoric is inspiring. It’s a completely boneheaded, counterproductive fantasy. But, it certainly sounds good, it’s well delivered and it is, for some, very emotionally satisfying.

Just remember, the following video shows you what you’re really voting for. I sure hope the fantasy based emotional satisfaction is worth it. Because, in the real world, if the tax and spend Liberals win, we all lose (every time).

Makers and Takers - Spread The Wealth

Quoting Scott Johnson:

“The Democratic leaders have been going through their playbook and have decided that class warfare is the way to go. Take advantage of the open sewer of economic ignorance that flows through America’s consciousness (thanks to generations of government education) and cast this as a grand battle between the evil rich and the glorious poor.

Does class warfare work? Does a hog love slop? There is an underlying current of animosity – even hatred – for those who are perceived as being rich that is far more intense than you might expect.”

Defining Problems With Socialism For The Post-Cold War Generation

Quoting IBD Editorials
(I inserted the links):

“John McCain has finally called Barack Obama's agenda by its proper name. But if he assumes voters understand what he means when he uses the word ‘socialism,’ he assumes too much.

To slap a label on it isn't enough. Sadly, most people under 60 in this country went to schools and universities where socialism isn't considered a bad thing.

McCain has to educate them about what socialists believe and how they want to rebuild ‘the world as it should be,’ as Obama quotes his socialist hero, Saul Alinsky.”

“According to Marxist theory, socialism is the stage between capitalism and communism where private wealth is distributed for the benefit of all. It's a romantic notion because hardly anyone is willing to share their wealth with strangers.

So to get from theory to practice, force must be used. Wealth must be taken by the state — and not by a faceless bureaucratic machine, but rather by flawed humans with their own selfish ambitions and ulterior motives. They decide who gets what, taking cuts for themselves and their cronies in the process.

Think ex-Fannie Mae CEO Franklin Raines and ACORN.

Socialism is centralized power. That's why socialist movements, which often begin as cults of personality, usually end in fascism. Witness Stalinism, Maoism, Castroism — and, yes, Nazism, which, as Hayek noted, stands for ‘National Socialism.’ ”

“The left wrongly asserts that unregulated capitalism caused the financial crisis; in fact, government overregulation of banks distorted market incentives and corrupted capitalism.

Wielding a socialist-inspired cudgel called the Community Reinvestment Act, government forced banks to make loans to uncreditworthy minorities who couldn't repay them.”

“Obama denies having socialist designs. But it's no coincidence he virtually always votes with socialist pal Bernie Sanders, as the two most liberal members of the Senate.

Nor is it a coincidence that nearly all of Obama's mentors and close advisers supported Marxism, including: James Cone, Dwight Hopkins, Jeremiah Wright, Frank Marshall Davis, Jim Wallis, John McKnight, Cornel West and William Ayers.

It's also no coincidence that Obama devoted his first memoir to the memory of his late father, a communist, who proposed massive taxes and redistribution of income in Kenya.”

Voter Profiles

Based upon the IBD/TIPP Poll for 10/27/08, the following is the profile of the person most likely to vote for each candidate:

1) Obama

Northeast, urban dwelling, Liberal Democrat, 18-24 years old, single, female, atheist, with children, high school education, making under $30,000 per year, no investments, from a union household which does not display the flag.

2) McCain

Southern, rural, Conservative Republican, 65 or more years of age, male, Protestant, with children, college degree or more, making over $50,000 per year, with investments, from a non-union household which does display the flag.

Between these two voter profiles, which would you expect to make the wiser choice in selecting the next leader of the relatively free (for now) world?

If you think the Obama voter will be better off under Obama, think again! Under Obama, she might get a brand new welfare check in the guise of a “tax cut” (even though she does not currently pay any income tax).

But, EVERY school of economic thought KNOWS that this new welfare check WILL come with an increased risk that she will lose her job. Somehow, I doubt her new welfare check will make up for having lost her job.

In June of 1980, under Jimmy Carter,
the “misery index” reached an all time high of 21.98:

The “misery index” as of September, 2008 was 11.04 (and dropping!).

If you think the economy is bad now, elect Obama and give him a supermajority of Democrats in the Senate (just as Jimmy Carter had) and see how much worse the economy can get!

Guess what? That old geezer who’s voting for McCain remembers the Jimmy Carter era! And, SO DO I!

Please! Listen to your elders! If you want to help the middle class and the lower class, help them KEEP THEIR JOBS! Vote McCain/Palin!

LA Times Withholds Video of Obama Toasting Former PLO Operative

Quoting NewsBusters:

“The mainstream media are willfully ignoring many questionable ties and friendships of Barack Obama. The list does not end with the radical racist preacher Jeremiah Wright and unrepentant domestic terrorist William Ayers. They have totally ignored Obama campaigning for the socialist revolutionary Raila Odinga in Kenya. They have also ignored his ties with radical Islamic extremist Khalid Al Mansour.

LA Times takes things to the next level. They are going beyond the level of ignoring to the level of willfully witholding informative evidence from the public. The associate of Barack Obama in question this time is Rashid Khalidi, a former PLO operative and best friend of William Ayers. The LA times has a video of Barack Obama toasting this friend of his while attending a Jew bashing dinner, and they are refusing to release the video to the public.”

As for that totalitarian thing…

Who else indoctrinates and exploits their children in a manner such as this? Who else, with such soaring oratory, assures us, contrary to ALL of human history, that Marxist class warfare and Socialist policy will be our salvation?

The commentator, Patrice Lewis, is absolutely correct. This is getting VERY creepy (and VERY dangerous). We could be on the verge of electing America’s Hugo Chavez (but with an even more dangerous secular theocratic twist).

Based upon what little we have been able to learn about Obama’s past, we have EVERY reason to believe that Obama shares the same radical Marxist ideology as those who have been his closest associates for DECADES. One of those associates was Bill Ayers, a founder of The Weather Underground. Listen to the commentary of one who infiltrated The Weather Underground:

Could America REALLY elect Barack Obama? Has the majority of this country really been THAT thoroughly indoctrinated by the likes of Bill Ayers and Ward Churchill? Have the 60’s Marxist radicals been THAT successful in spreading their poison throughout the indoctrination camps which we used to call “schools”, “media” and “entertainment”?

We will soon find out. If the polls are correct, these thoroughly indoctrinated Americans could be on the verge of giving America’s Far Left not just the Presidency, but a “faith based” supermajority control of the entire Federal government.

We are living in scary times, my friends.

Another Journalist Ashamed of his Profession

Quoting Another Honest Journalist
(emphasis mine, links mine):

“The traditional media is playing a very, very dangerous game. With its readers, with the Constitution, and with its own fate.

The sheer bias in the print and television coverage of this election campaign is not just bewildering, but appalling. And over the last few months I’ve found myself slowly moving from shaking my head at the obvious one-sided reporting, to actually shouting at the screen of my television and my laptop computer.

[I can relate!]

But worst of all, for the last couple weeks, I’ve begun — for the first time in my adult life — to be embarrassed to admit what I do for a living.”

“nothing, nothing I’ve seen has matched the media bias on display in the current Presidential campaign”

“I was one of the first people in the traditional media to call for the firing of Dan Rather - not because of his phony story, but because he refused to admit his mistake - but, bless him, even Gunga Dan thinks the media is one-sided in this election.”

“If the current polls are correct, we are about to elect as President of the United States a man who is essentially a cipher, who has left almost no paper trail, seems to have few friends (that at least will talk) and has entire years missing out of his biography. That isn’t Sen. Obama’s fault: his job is to put his best face forward. No, it is the traditional media’s fault, for it alone (unlike the alternative media) has had the resources to cover this story properly, and has systematically refused to do so.”

Updated World Oil Balance Data

Please check out the updates to this post (a subset of this post).

If anybody still doubts that simple supply and demand issues were, by FAR, the primary cause of the price spikes we saw last summer in oil and gasoline, this update should put that misconception to rest.

This update also suggests we may very well see similar price spikes NEXT summer!

The updated post notes that ANWR alone could have been enough to prevent the GLOBAL imbalance between supply and demand and could have prevented these price spikes worldwide!

If we do not get to work NOW developing more of our tremendous domestic hydrocarbon resources, we will continue to suffer higher and higher energy prices more and more frequently for more and more decades to come.

If American voters give Democrats on the Far Left a supermajority control of the entire Federal government, it is an absolute certainty that Democrats will resume their historical obstructionist activities, PREVENT us from developing these domestic resources and ensure these price spikes (or perpetually astronomical prices) for DECADES to come!

Obama 'admits' Kenyan birth? Not Qualified for President?

Ex-FBI Analyst Predicts Attack After Election

Click the image & read the rest:
Click the image & read the rest
Let me see if I have this right…

1) International terrorists prefer Obama and, even Joe Biden knows they are more likely to attack us if Obama is elected.

2) Domestic terrorists prefer Obama.

3) Hamas has endorsed Obama (using EXACTLY the same “swing the pendulum” type of language as our ex-FBI analyst used).

Let’s recall some of the “principles” which Hamas stated in their charter and adhere to today:

"Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it."

"The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Moslem generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up."

"There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors."
Given all this (and far, far more), are American voters really so stupid as to actually elect Obama?

Or, have the “Tanning Bed Media” simply been too busy harassing Palin with petty nonsense to bother informing American voters on issues that actually matter?

Obama’s “pastor” of 20 years may curse America. For my part, I curse our GD “journalists” and their BLATANT malpractice (which even Dan Rather now recognizes)!

Quoting The Wall Street Journal:

“Loyal Democrats have howled over the claim that small businesses will get soaked by the Obama tax plan, so we thought we would seek an authority they might trust on the issue: Democratic Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus of Montana. Here is what Mr. Baucus wrote in a joint press release with Iowa Republican Charles Grassley on August 20, 2001, when they supported the income tax rate cuts that Mr. Obama wants to repeal:

‘. . . when the new tax relief law is fully phased in, entrepreneurs and small businesses -- owners of sole proprietorships, partnerships, S corporations, and farms -- will receive 80 percent of the tax relief associated with reducing the top income tax rates of 36 percent to 33 percent and 39.6 percent to 35 percent.’

Then they continued with a useful economics tutorial:

‘Experts agree that lower taxes increase a business' cash flow, which helps with liquidity constraints during an economic slowdown and could increase the demand for investment and labor.’ ”

The Comprehensive Case Against Barack Obama

Quoting Guy Benson, Katharine Ham & Ed Morrissey
(emphasis mine):

“All three of us have written many, many times on all of these issues. Taken individually, most of them would create doubt about the readiness and honesty of any political candidate. Put together as a narrative, we believe this paints the picture of a man who has few real credentials for the office he seeks beyond the Constitutional minimum, and a politician who has succeeded in obfuscating his hard-Left ideology.

Perhaps if Barack Obama had taken more time to build his resumé – especially with executive experience – he might have made a more compelling candidate, and might have demonstrated at least a little of the moderation he has claimed. Instead, Democrats want America to support at once the most radical and least qualified candidate for President in at least a century. They have tried to conceal this with the complicity of a pom-pom-waving national media that has shown much more interest in the political background of a plumber from Ohio than in a major-party candidate for President.

America deserves better than that. Voters deserve the truth from the press, not vague cheers of ‘hope’ and ‘change’ while willfully ignoring or air-brushing Obama’s record. We hope to set that record straight with our essay.”

You Can't Fix Stupid

Apologies to Ron White for the title.

Quoting IBD Editorials:

“Telling a friend that the love of his life is a phony and dangerous is not likely to get him to change his mind. But it may cost you a friend.

It is much the same story with true believers in Barack Obama. They have made up their minds and not only don't want to be confused by the facts, but also resent being told the facts.”

“The magic word ‘change’ makes specifics unnecessary. If things are going bad, some think that what is needed is blank-check ‘change.’ But history shows any number of countries in crises worse than ours, where ‘change’ turned problems into catastrophes.”

“We know that Obama opposed attempts to put stricter regulations on Fannie Mae — and that he was the second largest recipient of campaign contributions from Fannie Mae. We know that this very year his campaign sought the advice of disgraced former Fannie Mae CEO Franklin Raines.

Fannie Mae and Raines were at the heart of ‘the mess in Washington’ that Barack Obama claims he is going to clean up under the banner of ‘change.’ ”

The Financial Mess: How We Got Here

Quoting Abraham H. Miller,
emeritus professor of political science,
University of Cincinnati:

“I am not suggesting that the CRA [Community Reinvestment Act] by itself led to the current crisis, but the CRA was the first and most important part of the food chain.”
I would say the CRA, combined with the Clinton “enhancements” to the CRA, created the catalyst for a chain reaction. Without that catalyst, this financial mess never would have happened.

In this essay, Dr. Miller both lays out the details of how Democrats caused this mess and eloquently articulates the futility of arguing the point with the hopelessly indoctrinated.

Market Reaction to $700 Billion Bailout House Vote

Updated on 10/19/08

This $700 billion bailout is purportedly needed to stabilize financial markets and get credit flowing again (assuming it was ever really frozen).

The bailout -- first proposed on 9/23/08 -- was approved by the House on 10/3/08 at 1:22 PM EDT.

So, what was the initial reaction?

Anybody still naïve enough to actually believe what The New York Times says would fall for this line:
“Financial markets had a positive but hardly exuberant response to the House action and the prospect that the Federal Reserve would also move to cut interest rates to help the ailing economy. Just after the bill was approved, the Dow Jones industrial average was up about 115 points.”
The data, however, tell another story. Remember, the House approved this bailout at 1:22 PM, EDT.

After 1:22 PM, EDT, all three major stock market indices declined.

The “TED Spread” is the closest thing to an indication we have seen to date which INDIRECTLY suggested that MAYBE there existed a “Credit Crunch”.

If bankers expected this bailout to make any difference, would we see maybe at least a slight drop in the “TED Spread”? Nope, After the House vote, the TED Spread ROSE!

Ron Paul got this one right:

FDR took a bad situation, made it worse and prolonged the pain.

Our Congress just GUARANTEED that we will repeat the mistakes of FDR! I doubt this will mean the second coming of the Great Depression. But, what is CERTAIN is that Congress just made our present mess WORSE (as usual).

We told you so!

Nice “work” Congress! I’m betting your 9% approval rating just went LOWER!

Is Obama a Socialist? You BETCHA!

Updated 10/16/09

1) Quoting Karl Marx, author of The Communist Manifesto:
“From each according to his ability, to each according to his need”
Does Obama see a need to “break free from” the Constitution
in order to facilitate the redistribution of wealth?
Listen for yourself:

EVERY society which has tried this has diminished the wealth of ALL!

2) Listen to Obama describe his intention of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America”:

3) Click here and examine the people Obama surrounded himself with IN THE WHITE HOUSE!

4) Compare Obama to Sanders

A) Bernie Sanders, Senator from Vermont, is a self-described Socialist.

B) Yet, according to the National Journal, Obama is MORE LIBERAL than Sanders! In fact, Obama is THE MOST LIBERAL of ALL Senators!

5) Quoting Henry Lamb at WorldNetDaily:
“For more than half a century, capitalism in the United States has taken a beating from the socialist revolution. Despite the best efforts of conservatives since the Roosevelt era, socialists have made great strides toward converting the nation to socialism. Apparently, the majority of Americans either fail to recognize the transition, or welcome it. The enthusiastic support for Barack Obama, especially among young people, is abundant evidence.”

“For nearly two generations, students have been fed a steady diet of socialism under a variety of disguises”
After documenting Obama’s policy alignment
with the Socialist Party, USA, Mr. Lamb goes on to note:

“Students and young adults no longer know why capitalism is better than socialism. Like Obama, young people really believe that when government redistributes wealth, ‘it's good for everybody.’ They do not realize that wealth redistribution is no substitute for wealth creation. They are never taught that the only way to create wealth is for an individual to combine his energy and intellect with resources to produce a product that improves his life, or for which someone else is willing to pay.

Private property, the accumulation of personal prosperity and individual achievement are anathema to socialism. Socialism sees the individual as nothing more than a cog in a government-run machine designed to ensure equity for all.

Capitalism seeks prosperity; socialism seeks equity. Freedom increases as prosperity increases. In a socialist system, there can be neither.”

6) Quoting Bill Sammon:
“Barack Obama laughs off charges of socialism. Joe Biden scoffs at references to Marxism. Both men shrug off accusations of liberalism.

But Obama himself acknowledges that he was drawn to socialists and even Marxists as a college student. He continued to associate with Marxists later in life, even choosing to launch his political career in the living room of a self-described Marxist, William Ayers, in 1995, when Obama was 34.”

Please! Help prevent this travesty!
A Far Left supermajority in Congress would be bad enough!
At LEAST allow that Congress to be tempered by a Republican President!

The Coming Backlash

Quoting Pat Buchanan at CNS News:

“As Americans render what Catholics call temporal judgment on George Bush, are they aware of the radical course correction they are about to make?

This center-right country is
[IF one believes the polls] about to vastly strengthen a liberal Congress whose approval rating is 10 percent and implant in Washington a regime further to the left than any in U.S. history. Consider.”

“What will this mean to America? An administration that is either at war with its base or at war with the nation.”

A Liberal Supermajority? Watch Out!

Quoting The Wall Street Journal
(I inserted the link):

“If the current polls hold, Barack Obama will win the White House on November 4 and Democrats will consolidate their Congressional majorities, probably with a filibuster-proof Senate or very close to it. Without the ability to filibuster, the Senate would become like the House, able to pass whatever the majority wants.

Though we doubt most Americans realize it, this would be one of the most profound political and ideological shifts in U.S. history. Liberals would dominate the entire government in a way they haven't since 1965, or 1933. In other words, the election would mark the restoration of the activist government that fell out of public favor in the 1970s. If the U.S. really is entering a period of unchecked left-wing ascendancy, Americans at least ought to understand what they will be getting, especially with the media cheering it all on.”

One assumes the 1977 Democratic supermajority was not mentioned because it was slightly more moderate and slightly less damaging (except for having been the primary root cause of our present housing mess).

In 1965, under a Democratic supermajority, LBJ saddled the nation with Medicare and Medicaid. Prior to that, the federal government virtually never ran a deficit. Subsequent to that, ever larger deficits became the norm. Without major reform, it is a mathematical certainty that the catastrophe of that Democrat supermajority WILL kill this nation. And, frankly, the odds of death far exceed the odds of reform. Nobody wants to give up “free” candy.

In 1977, under a Democratic supermajority which would make the pending Democratic supermajority look downright moderate, Democrats created the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (which, after being “enhanced” under the Clinton administration, went on to serve as the primary root cause of the current housing mess).

Only 15 months after taking power (without a supermajority) the impact of the Democrats on federal deficit spending was already dramatic. If it comes to pass, this Democrat supermajority is certain to further expand Entitlements to the point of fully nationalizing healthcare. That will only hasten the demise which LBJ already guaranteed.

Canadians seem to have come to their senses. They recently rejected the very Socialist agenda which Americans now appear to embrace (thanks to overpowering propaganda from our so-called “journalists”, “educators” and “entertainers”).

Will we wake up in time to prevent this national tragedy? Time will tell.

What's Obama hiding from us?

Quoting Hal Lindsey at WorldNetDaily:

“I read in yesterday's edition of WorldNetDaily that a second lawsuit has been filed demanding Barack Obama produce evidence that he is a natural-born U.S. citizen in the form of certified copies of birth documents. When I first heard that the birth certificate Obama had posted on his website was suspected of being a forgery, I didn't give it much credence.”

“The Constitution of the United States sets forth the necessary qualifications for the U.S. presidency. To qualify, a person must be a ‘natural-born citizen’ of the United States, aged at least 35, and having been a permanent resident of the United States for the last 14 years.”

“All Obama has to do to make it all go away – especially this close to the election – is let the Hawaii registrar of birth records release one certified copy to be examined by a neutral party. That's all. But he won't. It's baffling.

I mean, what can there be to hide?”

Note: When I first heard this story, I gave it no credence at all. But, then I learned the facts. If Obama is a natural born citizen, he could make this go away with virtually no effort. Instead, he has gone to FAR greater trouble NOT to comply with TWO lawsuits! WHY would he do that?

Click here for a damning video on this topic.

This is FAR from the only thing Obama is hiding from us!
I encourage everybody to watch this series and review this evidence.

Joe The Plumber and Liberal Smear Tactics

When it comes to Joe, the plumber, so-called “Liberals” are, predictably, ignoring the substantive story.

Instead, so-called “Liberals” are, reflexively, going directly into smear mode.

This is the same tactic they always use on any scientist who dares to challenge their climate orthodoxy or any of their other Socialist orthodoxies. Just ask Sarah Palin!

Anybody who is even remotely surprised by this clearly does not understand the first thing about the true nature of so-called “Liberals”.

But, that is entirely natural when our so-called “journalists” go to such extraordinary lengths to hide that true nature from the general public.

Ministry of Socialist Propaganda Opens New Exhibit

Quoting the Hartford Courant:

“Entering the gallery housing the American Museum of Natural History's new exhibit on global warming, visitors immediately come upon a 60-foot-long panoramic illustration detailing technological advances of the past 400 years.

Running through this wall-based collage is a red, light-emitting diode — it looks like a neon tube — that tracks the levels in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from 1600 to the present.”

“Atmospheric carbon dioxide in 1660 — an estimated 274 parts per million. The year 2000 369 ppm. Point made.”

Here is a chart you will NOT find in this exhibit.

I created the above chart.
A current CO2 level of 385ppm was taken from this NOAA page.
Historic CO2 levels were taken from the following peer reviewed science:

R.A. Berner, 2001 (GEOCARB III), as published in the American Journal of Science, Vol. 301, February 2001, P.182-204.

The raw data from the above peer reviewed science was taken from this file downloaded from this NOAA page.

I followed the instructions contained in Geocarb III for translating RCO2 into ppm.

The following chart takes the same peer reviewed science and overlays temperature data derived from The Paleomap Project by Dr. C.R. Scotese, a PhD geologist at the University of Texas at Arlington.

Note: The above chart somehow calculated lower CO2 levels than I did.
But, I followed the instructions contained in Geocarb III to the letter.

Now, look back 460 million years ago and explode the MYTH that we are on the precipice of some mythical “tipping point” of unstoppable and catastrophic global warming. The FACT is that the Ordovician Ice Age climate was very similar to THE CURRENT ICE AGE!
