It's a Wonderful Life Working for the Government

Quoting Michael Barone (emphasis mine):
“Private-sector employment peaked at 115.8 million in December 2007, when the recession officially began. It was down to 108.5 million last November. That's a 6 percent decline.

Public-sector employment peaked at 22.6 million in August 2008. It fell a bit in 2009, then rebounded back to 22.5 million in November. That's less than a 1 percent decline.

This is not an accident -- it is the result of deliberate public policy…

The unemployment data show that this recession has had a much greater impact on private-sector workers than on public employees, on men than on women, on blue-collar workers than on white-collar employees.

This seems not to have gone unnoticed. Democrats have been surprised that so many downscale voters oppose their big-spending programs. Maybe many of those voters have noticed how much of that spending has gone to public-sector union members, leaving the rest of America with a less-than-happy new year.”

Even WaPo Knows Napolitano's System is Broken

Quoting The Washington Post
(emphasis mine):
“THE THWARTED Christmas Day airplane bombing raises three causes for alarm. First, it illustrates a screening system that remains porous enough to let a suspect board with the same explosive shoe-bomber Richard Reid attempted to use in 2001. Second, it exposes a terrorism bureaucracy too clumsy to catapult the suspect, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, at least to a higher level of preflight scrutiny after his father came forward with warnings that he might pose a danger. Third, if it is true that the suspect received explosives training from al-Qaeda in Yemen, the incident underscores the emergence of that troubled nation as a training ground for terrorists. To that initial list, we would add a fourth: the disturbingly defensive reaction of the Obama administration.”

[Uh, WaPo, HELLO…
When has the Obama administration ever shown anything OTHER than arrogance, ignorance, incompetence, corruption, tyranny, dishonesty and defensiveness?]

“it is hardly reassuring to argue, as Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano did on ABC's ‘This Week,’ that ‘once the incident occurred, the system worked.’ The attack was averted because of the luck of a faulty detonator and the quick response of alert passengers. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said the president has ordered a review into ‘did the government do everything that it could have with the information that they had?’ The answer to that question seems obvious.

[Duh…
Kudos to WaPo for this editorial.]

Because, eventually all Socialists run out of OPM to spend.
We have already run out. Now, we borrow. Tomorrow we fall.

Napolitano Fails (Again) at Damage Control

Yesterday, Napolitano lit up the blogs with her boneheaded assertion that the system worked.

This morning, Napolitano was on every single cable news channel whining about how she was “taken out of context” (by the AP via the NYT).

Well, dear readers, click here to examine yesterday’s transcript with commentary and click here to watch the video clip (relevant section begins at 0:23). Then decide for yourself.

In one sense, Napolitano was clearly referring to “the [entire] system”, right down to this guy. In another sense, she can argue she was only referring to “the system” of “making sure that we respond properly, correctly and effectively” once the terrorist is already on the plane and executing his plan. Gee, not much comfort in THAT -- especially since we MERELY GOT LUCKY on this one!

Remember…
AFTER his own father informed our government that his son might be a terrorist, our Federal bureaucrats failed to so much as flag this guy for secondary airport screening! Given that breath-taking FAILURE, how boneheaded must Napolitano be to assert -- without qualification -- that “the system worked” (even if she thought she was qualifying her assertion)?

Also today, Napolitano effectively suggested that the bureaucracy failed to so much as flag this guy for secondary airport screening because there was no check box on the bureaucratic list reading “Father told us his son might be a terrorist”. Napolitano also implied that the “fix” would be to revise the checklist (rather than revise the decision making process). So, when another terrorist slips through the cracks because it was the uncle (rather than the father) who ratted out the terrorist, I suppose we’ll revise the checklist again - eh, Janet?

Get used to it! This is the EXACT same sort of decision making process we’ll see once the Dims tyrannically impose ObamaCare on an unwilling majority!

U.S. Knew for 2 Years of Plane Attack Suspect's Terror Ties

Update: It gets worse!
The father rats his son out and STILL our Feds don’t even list the son as a candidate for secondary screening at airports! Really? Seriously? Well, although the Feds failed us, this guy didn’t. NBC, of course, sees no failure.

Quoting Fox News:
“An official briefed on the attack on a Detroit airliner says the U.S. has known for at least two years that the suspect in the attack could have terrorist ties…

[And yet…]

New York congressman Peter King says [suspected terrorist] Mutallab was not on the no-fly list.”

Eight years, massive investigations/recommendations and billions of dollars later, the phenomenally incompetent bureaucrats in our Federal government are not even capable of putting an individual with terrorist ties on the no fly list?

And, yet -- so-called “Progressives” naïvely believe that the way to improve upon the world’s best health care system is to put incompetent Federal bureaucrats in charge of health care (and every other aspect of our lives)? If that is not a CLEAR indication of the abysmal failure of our government run education indoctrination system, I don’t know what is!

Heck, even this little ol’ blogger here was only 1 month late in relating what the Telegraph reported last August!

Mann-Made Global Warming

There is a new phrase becoming popular on the internet:

Mann-Made Global Warming

I LOVE IT!

If you do not understand the pun, click here and get caught up on the Mann-Made Hockey Stick chart.

Mann, it has been said, was caught “totally inventing the hockey stick chart”.

And, despite disingenuous protestations to the contrary, that chart lies at the core of the IPCC driven AGW hysteria.

For insiders, the hockey stick chart was debunked long ago. But, ClimateGate made that debunking comprehensible to the average layperson. As a result, more and more of the ever shrinking minority who still subscribe to AGW hysteria will -- likely -- now finally succumb to a more rational reading of the science.

I say good riddance to that particular denomination of the most dangerous totalitarian political religious cult ever in the entire history of humanity!

Another big blow to that cult would come if we, the people, can somehow pull off a Hail Mary which prevents any Dim-driven health care tyranny from becoming law.

Merry Christmas!

Harry Reid Passes a Big One

The public does not approve.

Never the less, just this morning, health care tyranny was passed in the Senate.

At least three Dim Senators -- that we know of -- prostituted themselves in a BIG way in order to sell their votes. Could this crap possibly smell any worse?

It remains to be seen whether the House Dims and the Senate Dims can reconcile the two very different bills passed by each house and put something on Obama’s desk. But, the odds are they get something passed into law. We don’t yet know exactly what that will be. There are only four things we can count on:

1) As usual, not one damn Dim will have even READ the 2,700 plus pages (and growing) of pure crap before unilaterally imposing it upon the entire nation.

2) It will make our health care system FAR WORSE.

3) Accounting fraud (and other trickery) aside, Federal deficits will SOAR.

4) The filthy, stinking, worthless Dims will have ensured that the total collapse of this great nation will come about even sooner.

But, the Dims don’t care one FIG about ANY of that. The ONLY thing they care about is that they will have expanded the scope and scale of government, brought us one GIANT step closer to a total government monopoly over 1/6th of our economy and brought us one more GIANT step closer to their end game.

With “leadership” like this, is it any wonder so many Americans are not in the holiday spirit?

Obama Approval Index Plummets to New Low - Minus 21

Obama’s approval index is now minus 21.
Approval index = strongly approve - strongly disapprove.

Rasmussen notes
(in a link which changes every day):
“For the second straight day, the update shows the highest level of Strong Disapproval yet recorded for this President [46%]. That negative rating had never topped 42% before yesterday. However, it has risen dramatically since the Senate found 60 votes to move forward with the proposed health care reform legislation. Most voters (55%) oppose the health care legislation and senior citizens are even more likely than younger voters to dislike the plan.”
This extremely high level for strong disapproval comes as Senate Democrats arrogantly defied the will of the people and -- in a purely partisan vote -- crossed the last big hurdle in the process that will likely see the tyrannical travesty of ObamaCare passed by the Senate on Christmas Eve.

Media malpractice got Obama elected.

Sleaziness and vacuous inanity aside, they forgot to mention (just to skim the surface):

2) ObamaCare will require young people (and everybody else) through FORCE OF LAW to purchase health insurance from the very insurance companies they have been indoctrinated into hating. Yeah! Less freedom to choose! That’s the ticket!

I Was Way Ahead of Strassel & Steyn

Quoting Kim Strassel:
“Barack Obama emerged from his meeting with Senate Democrats this week to claim Congress was on the ‘precipice’ of something historic. Believe him. The president is demanding his party unilaterally enact one of the most unpopular and complex pieces of social legislation in history. In the process, he may be sacrificing Democrats' chances at creating a sustainable majority.

Slowly, slowly, the Democratic health agenda is turning into a political suicide pact…

So why the stubborn insistence on passing health reform? Think big. The liberal wing of the party—the Barney Franks, the David Obeys—are focused beyond November 2010, to the long-term political prize. They want a health-care program that inevitably leads to a value-added tax and a permanent welfare state. Big government then becomes fact, and another Ronald Reagan becomes impossible. See Continental Europe.”

Mark Steyn’s thoughts on that:

Click the image & read Mark Steyn’s thoughts on that

Kim & Mark are correct in their analysis. But, I was way ahead of both of them.

On June 18, 2009 -- in my first post on this topic -- I said:
“America’s so-called ‘Progressives’ most often point to Canada’s single payer government monopoly as a model for what they would like to perpetrate on Americans. After the abject failure of HillaryCare, the Dims adopted a strategy of getting to HillaryCare incrementally -- by ‘boiling the frog slowly’, if you will.

No matter what the nature of the legislation that gets passed, know that it will be just one more step toward their end game -- a total government monopoly over health care.”
Even if -- by some miracle -- the current version fails, something will get passed and it will take us one giant step closer to the devastating single payer system which THEY ADMIT they’re gunning for. Ronald Reagan warned us about this in 1961.

I said it first, but -- on August 1, 2009 -- Steyn said it more eloquently and more comprehensively.

Barack Obama’s climate deal unravels

Quoting The TimesOnline:
“The United Nations climate change conference ended in recrimination yesterday without reaching a clear deal on emissions targets.

After a stormy session in Copenhagen, in which a vociferous anti-American minority brought the talks close to collapse, most countries agreed simply to ‘take note’ of a watered-down agreement brokered by President Barack Obama and supported by Britain.

This accord — which had been drawn up in discussions with China and 30 or so other countries on Friday — sets a target of limiting global warming to a maximum of 2C above pre-industrial times.”
Click the image & read the rest:
Click the image & read the rest

Hurrah for no legally binding stupidity!

For a quick glimpse into the breathtaking ignorance of this “accord”, who can tell me what the official temperature was during “pre-industrial times”?

During the last 10,000 years, the temperature at Vostok, Antarctica has varied from more than 2C above the annual mean temperature for 2008 to almost 2C below the annual mean temperature for 2008 (making 2008 -- in one sense -- almost PERFECTLY “NORMAL”).

Thus, just over the last 10,000 years, we have a range of NATURAL variability of about 4C. So, along this 4C range of variability, which is the magic temperature which the moronic bureaucrats will select as the official temperature for “pre-industrial times”?

Roughly 128,000 years ago, the temperature at the same location was more than 3C above the annual mean temperature for 2008. Ergo, the “accord” declares that NATURAL VARIATIONS in temperature are excessive and we must find a way to prevent MOTHER NATURE from doing what Mother Nature will do anyway.

You see, if we want to guarantee that the current interglacial warming period will not reach the maximum temperatures achieved during the previous perfectly natural interglacial warming period, we will have to find a way to “correct” each of the three different orbital eccentricities of our planet which are collectively known as Milankovitch Cycles.

For now, we can just be grateful that these moronic, ignorant, greedy and unspeakably evil power mongers failed to agree to anything which would be legally binding. But, rest assured -- the evil doers are not done yet. They will soon be back attempting the very same power grab.

Wikipedia’s climate doctor

Quoting Lawrence Solomon at The Financial Post
(I inserted the links):
The Climategate Emails describe how a small band of climatologists cooked the books to make the last century seem dangerously warm.

The emails also describe how the band plotted to rewrite history as well as science, particularly by eliminating the Medieval Warm Period, a 400 year period that began around 1000 AD.

The Climategate Emails reveal something else, too: the enlistment of the most widely read source of information in the world — Wikipedia — in the wholesale rewriting of this history…

All told, [U.K. Green Party activist, William] Connolley created or rewrote 5,428 unique Wikipedia articles… he removed… more than 500 articles… When he disapproved of the arguments that others were making, he often had them barred — over 2,000 Wikipedia contributors who ran afoul of him found themselves blocked from making further contributions. Acolytes whose writing conformed to Connolley’s global warming views, in contrast, were rewarded with Wikipedia’s blessings. In these ways, Connolley turned Wikipedia into the missionary wing of the global warming movement.”

Paul Decelles - I am flattered (and disappointed)

I am flattered to see Dr. Paul Decelles -- in his LJWorld blog post -- cite my chart.

I am disappointed to infer that Dr. Decelles did not bother to examine more than the first chart in my post. If he had, he would have quickly found his arguments completely shattered by the very peer reviewed science which we now know was stacked against any and all skeptics of AGW hysteria.

Oh well…
I suppose I should be pleased that Dr. Decelles even examined a single chart. It’s a start. I wonder if that one chart at least gave Dr. Decelles some pause to contemplate all the “tipping point” hysteria.

P.S.) I was more flattered back when Dr. Tim Ball cited one of my charts (from this post).

Imminent Climate Scare Tyranny?

Quoting David Boehmer at American Thinker:
“Many doubt Obama's ability to legally commit to a binding [international climate] treaty and obligate the United States…

The Obama administration is not bluffing about the ‘command and control’ powers of EPA regulation versus the ‘market-based’ powers of the stalled cap-and-trade bill. They do not wish to extort the passage of legislation with the threat of EPA action. The new international commitments will be based on existing U.S. laws and regulations, and the treaty commitments will then be used to reinforce those same laws and regulations -- even providing the pretext for the urgent need for new ones to enforce the treaty obligations.

Anyone no longer believing Obama's campaign language of ‘fundamentally changing the United States’ underestimates this man. This is a massive power grab of historical and possibly unconstitutional breadth at a breakneck pace. Card check, health care reform, TARP fund misallocations, the stimulus bill pork-barrel spending, cash for clunkers, the $3.4 billion settlement with the Indian tribes, the financial reform bill, additions to the federal work force amidst the hemorrhaging of jobs in the private sector, and now this...we had better wake up and smell what this team is shoveling. And fast.”

“Some naive folk, who probably still don't understand that governments do not, in fact, make money of their own but merely take what has been earned by others and redistribute it to causes they think will win them the most votes, may believe that the wealth redistribution will actually lower the temperature of the planet.

There is no evidence, scientific or otherwise, that this will happen. The only certainty is that billions will be ripped off by bankers and other middle men before the remainder arrives in the Third World to be looted by a line-up of dictators and tyrants.”

Media malpractice got Obama elected.
But, the people now see Obama for what he really is.
They also see the Dim Congress for what they really are.
And, they see Health Care “reform” for the Socialist tyranny it really is.

EPA Carbon Bomb Fizzles

Quoting Kim Strassel at The Wall Street Journal
(I inserted the links):
“In the high-stakes game of chicken the Obama White House has been playing with Congress over who will regulate the earth's climate, the president's team just motored into a ditch.

The threat the White House has been leveling at Congress is the Environmental Protection Agency's ‘endangerment finding,’ which EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson finally issued this week. The finding lays the groundwork for the EPA to regulate greenhouse gas emissions across the entire economy, on the grounds that global warming is hazardous to human health…

President Obama, having failed to get climate legislation, didn't want to show up to the Copenhagen climate talks with a big, fat nothing. So the EPA pulled the pin. In doing so, it exploded its own threat…

Now that the endangerment finding has become reality, the litigation is also about to become real. Green groups pioneered the art of environmental lawsuits. It turns out the business community took careful notes.

Industry groups are gearing up for a legal onslaught; and don't underestimate their prospects. The leaked emails from the Climatic Research Unit in England alone are a gold mine for those who want to challenge the science underlying the theory of manmade global warming.”

Schneider gives new meaning to 'Denier'

Quoting Dr. Stephen H. Schneider at HuffPo
(I inserted the link):
“The amazing scientific thing that nobody seems to be covering is that the ‘hockey stick’ was never used as proof of anthropogenic global warming by IPCC”

Quoting the IPCC Third Assessment Report:
“New analyses of proxy data for the Northern Hemisphere indicate that the increase in temperature in the 20th century is likely to have been the largest of any century during the past 1,000 years. It is also likely that, in the Northern Hemisphere, the 1990s was the warmest decade and 1998 the warmest year (Figure 1b).”

More Proof Obama is Worst President EVER

As Gallup notes, both Reagan and Obama “took office when the economy was struggling”. And, that impacted the approval ratings for both Presidents.

Reagan, throughout his two terms, was viciously assaulted by the media. By contrast, even SNL knows the media have been brazen in their propagandizing for Obama. The media dragged Reagan’s ratings down and the media have kept Obama’s ratings artificially high.

Kill the IPCC

Quoting Professor Bob Carter
(I inserted the links):
The Climategate files have demonstrated the scientific malfeasance of an influential and internationally well networked segment of the climate research community. A small group of scientists and computer modellers - with the aid of an enormous supporting cast of environmental activists and organisations, self-interested business groups, and crusading journalists - have managed to turn the global warming issue (which in 1990 was an entirely sensible matter to have raised) into the scientific scam of the century, if not the biggest ever.”

EPA Formally Announces Their Arrogant Tyranny

Quoting the tyrants at EPA:
“After a thorough examination of the scientific evidence and careful consideration of public comments, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced today that greenhouse gases (GHGs) threaten the public health and welfare of the American people….

GHGs are the primary driver of climate change [bald faced LIE!]…

‘These long-overdue findings cement 2009’s place in history as the year when the United States Government began addressing the challenge of greenhouse-gas pollution and seizing the opportunity of clean-energy reform,’ said EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson.”

How could any scientist be THIS dense?

Indirectly Quoting Dr. Michael Schlesinger
(as he threatens a boycott of NYT science reporter Andy Revkin):
“I sense that you are about to experience the 'Big Cutoff' from those of us who believe we can no longer trust you, me included.”
Click the image (of Schlesinger)
& read the rest:

Click the image (of Schlesinger) & read the rest

A huge part of the ClimateGate scandal is the systematic exclusion of any scientist who dared to question any aspect of the orthodoxy of catastrophic man made climate change -- including the preferred (clearly catastrophic) government response. Also huge was the systematic attempt to remove at least one uncooperative editor of an esteemed peer reviewed science journal.

One would think that a highly placed university scientist would have enough common sense NOT to throw MORE gasoline on that fire! But, that is EXACTLY what Dr. Schlesinger has done. Open mouth, insert foot!

I suppose all the (self-described) overt propagandizing from so-called “journalists” has the alarmists conditioned to expect that sycophantic behavior forever and ever, amen.

My dear Dr. Schlesinger - wake up and smell the coffee! A new day has dawned! Your world got rocked! And, it will NEVER be the same!

Catastrophe Averted as IPCC 'Experts' Report 2350 as 2035

Quoting The BBC (of all sources):
“The UN panel on climate change warning that Himalayan glaciers could melt to a fifth of current levels by 2035 is wildly inaccurate, an academic says.

J Graham Cogley, a professor at Ontario Trent University, says he believes the UN authors got the date from an earlier report wrong by more than 300 years.

He is astonished they ‘misread 2350 as 2035’.”

Met Office to re-examine 160 years of climate data

Quoting The U.K. TimesOnline
(I inserted the link):
“The Met Office plans to re-examine 160 years of temperature data after admitting that public confidence in the science on man-made global warming has been shattered by leaked e-mails.

The new analysis of the data will take three years, meaning that the Met Office will not be able to state with absolute confidence the extent of the warming trend until the end of 2012.”

First, “absolute confidence” is an unattainable standard.
There will always be discrepancies and disputes.

Second, this changes everything!
The significance of ClimateGate can no longer be denied.
Will the Copenhagen tyrants take notice?
Or, will they defiantly impose their tyranny anyway?
