Obama Administration Does NOT Pay 'Fair Share'

According to IRS data published by the Washington Post, 36 people working in the “Executive Office of the President” owe $833,970 in back taxes.

Now, without delving into the abject absurdity of Obama’s “fair share” bullshit, perhaps Comrade Obama should have cleaned up his own backyard before taking his class warfare propaganda fest on the road.

NPR's Nina Totenberg is a Bald Faced Liar

The entire “Progressive” ideology is PURE MYTHOLOGY!
No lie is too big or too small if it helps to sell their snake oil.
And, they wonder why we have contempt for so-called “journalists”.
The so-called “profession” of so-called “journalism” has DESTROYED the USA.

Quoting NPR’s Nina Totenberg:
“there were more people on food stamps under George W. Bush”

The federal government reports that the peak rate of food stamp usage under President Bush was 31,624,844 (in 2008).

The federal government reports that -- in October, 2011 (the most recent data available), 46,224,722 people were receiving what used to be called food stamps (in 2008, it became known as SNAP).

The Far Left Huffington Post and other sources acknowledge that more people (by FAR) are on what used to be called food stamps than ever before.

A Fine for Not Using a Biofuel That Doesn’t Exist

You know the Dims have REALLY jumped the shark when even the New York Times calls them out for their regulatory insanity!

Quoting [gasp] The New York Times:
“When the companies that supply motor fuel close the books on 2011, they will pay about $6.8 million in penalties to the Treasury because they failed to mix a special type of biofuel into their gasoline and diesel as required by law…

But there was none to be had. Outside a handful of laboratories and workshops, the ingredient, cellulosic biofuel, does not exist.

In 2012, the oil companies expect to pay even higher penalties for failing to blend in the fuel, which is made from wood chips or the inedible parts of plants like corncobs. Refiners were required to blend 6.6 million gallons into gasoline and diesel in 2011 and face a quota of 8.65 million gallons this year.”

New Entry for 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America

Quoting Bernard Goldberg
(emphasis is mine):
“Back in 2005 I wrote a book called 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America – and Al Franken is #37. It was about the chuckleheads in our culture and politics who were, well, screwing up America…

If I were updating the book now, in 2012, there’d be a lot of contenders for the list – almost everybody on MSNBC, for example – but no one would deserve to be there more than the new Democratic National Chair … Debbie Wasserman Shultz. She would make the list – maybe even topping it at number one – if for no other reason than she’s breathtakingly obnoxious. Every time she opens her mouth, you have to figure that it’s a vote for some Republican – ANY Republican. What were the Democrats thinking when they picked her as the face and voice of their party? By the way, I’m not ruling out the possibility that’s she’s a mole for the GOP, that she’s there because of some really, really cool Republican dirty trick.”
I could not agree more!

117 Year Flat Temperature Trend in Texas

The previous post examined the lies surrounding the 2011 Texas drought. Most of the propagandists exploiting that drought also made hay about 2011 recording the second highest Texas temperatures on record.

Here are a few “minor” details the propagandists would rather ignore:

1) Peer reviewed science has found a 30% warming bias in NOAA temperature data.

2) The hottest year on record in Texas was 1921.

3) The entire 117 year temperature record shows an absolutely FLAT temperature trend rate of 0.00F per decade (without accounting for the warming bias documented in point #1).

Texas Drought is NOT Indicator of Climate Change

According to NOAA’s NCDC (see chart below), 2011 was the driest year on record in Texas.

As expected, the usual propagandists are exploiting this drought to the hilt. The following Google search currently results in almost 5 million results:
Texas drought "global warming" OR "climate change"

But, there are a few “minor” details about that NCDC data which the utterly dishonest propagandists deliberately ignore. Such as:

1) The second driest year was 1917 (with 0.7% more precipitation than 2011). The record high precipitation was set in 1919 (just two years later).

2) The third driest year was 1956 (with 4% more rain than 2011). The very next year (1957) witnessed the 8th highest precipitation in the 117 years of available records.

3) The precipitation trend rate since 1895 shows Texas precipitation is increasing at a rate of 0.02 inches per decade (about as flat a trend line as you can get).

So, history suggests that Texas will probably recover from this drought in a year or two (by which time, the utterly dishonest, purely political propagandists will be telling some new set of bald faced lies).

Does Wind Power INCREASE CO2 Emissions?

1) Let’s start by noting that the global hysteria over CO2 emissions is utterly unjustified.

2) We already know that Ethanol did exactly the opposite of everything it was purported to do.

3) Now, we see (below) that wind power (also heavily subsidized by governments) may very well do the same.

Quoting Dutch physicist C. le Pair:
“Wind generated electricity requires back-up capacity of conventional power stations. This capacity is required to deliver electricity to consumers when wind supply is falling short. To have the non-wind power stations ramp up or down to compensate for the stochastic wind variations causes extra efficiency loss for such power stations…

Wind energy easily costs more than it yields, not only in monetary terms, but also in non-sustainable energy use. Thus it will easily increase rather than decrease CO2 emission.”

Please! Tell me again who thinks it is a good idea to utterly waste $45 TRILLION in order to pretend we can micromanage climate change. Kyoto has already PROVEN that we can waste all the money we want and we will not even come CLOSE to changing the global temperature in any way which could even be measured.

Furthermore, history tells us that the estimate of $45 TRILLION would balloon into at LEAST a full order of magnitude above that figure.

Children of the Corn - The Renewable Fuels Disaster

Quoting The American:
How government policy can push more than
100 million people below the extreme poverty line

“Deficit hawks, environmentalists, and food processors are celebrating the expiration of the ethanol tax credit. This corporate handout gave $0.45 to ethanol producers for every gallon they produced and cost taxpayers $6 billion in 2011. So why did the powerful corn ethanol lobby let it expire without an apparent fight? The answer lies in legislation known as the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), which creates government-guaranteed demand that keeps corn prices high and generates massive farm profits. Removing the tax credit but keeping the RFS is like scraping a little frosting from the ethanol-boondoggle cake.”

George Stephanopoulos is a despicable propagandist

Unless he is phenomenally ignorant, George Stephanopolus knows damn well each state has (under the tenth Amendment) the theoretical power -- IF they chose to -- to ban contraceptives. He also knows that there (quite properly) isn’t a politician ANYWHERE in the country who would EVER vote to do so.

This despicable little bitch (Stephanopolus) KNOWINGLY formulated a question which -- if answered honestly -- would be dishonestly used by EVERY Dim from now to eternity to slander anybody foolish enough to fall into his slimy little trap.

Stephanopolus should be immediately FIRED for a GROSS violation of journalistic ethics (if there is such a thing anymore).

Tony Blankley, R.I.P.

Quoting The Washington Times:
“Tony Blankley died this weekend after a long battle with cancer. His passing is a sad loss for America, the nation’s capital and The Washington Times, all of which he served with great honor and decency. He was editorial page editor of this newspaper for five years. His example, wisdom and political perspective will continue as guiding lights for the work we do here.”
Tony will be sorely missed.

Government - The redistributionist behemoth

Quoting George Will
(I inserted the links):
“Liberals have a rendezvous with regret. Their largest achievement is today’s redistributionist government. But such government is inherently regressive: It tends to distribute power and money to the strong, including itself…

The welfare state’s primary purpose is to subsidize the last years of Americans’ lives, and the elderly are, after a lifetime of accumulation, better off than most Americans

When taxes are levied not to efficiently fund government but to impose this or that notion of distributive justice, remember: Taxes are always coerced contributions to government, which is always the first, and often the principal, beneficiary of them.”

Obama's Epic Failure - December Jobs Edition

As reported by Newsbusters, the Obama media are falling all over themselves to sing the praises of unemployment falling all the way from 8.6% in November (when 315,000 stopped looking for jobs) to 8.5% in December (thanks to holiday related seasonal hiring).

Somehow lost in all these hosannas sung for Obama (the great Messiah) is the fact that Obama promised that, if Congress rushed through the passage of his so-called “stimulus” package, unemployment would now be down to 6.0%. Without the “stimulus”, Obama warned we would now have 6.8% unemployed.

So, by Obama’s own metrics, his so-called “stimulus” (predictably) actually made things worse -- FAR WORSE!

But, count on the Obama media to portray abject failure as a grand success (so long as a Democrat led the charge).
