The 'Scientists' Are Wrong

So say the scientists:
New Evidence the Earth Is Cooling
By Philip V. Brennan, NewsMax.com

I read this morning of a document being peddled by the Obama administration and touted by global warming alarmists. We are, this panic-ridden report produced by a bevy of 30 scientists on the payrolls of 13 Obama administration government agencies responsible for dealing with the effects of alleged climate change, facing unimaginable horrors as a result of global warming.

Let's get this straight. The planet is not warming.

What warming there was stopped over 10 years ago. Moreover, it is now apparent that the proof that the planet was warming comes from largely from [sic] temperature readings which meteorologist Anthony Watts warns are unreliable.

But let's not argue. The planet was warming since the end of the little ice age. It stopped in 1998, and over the past decade, it's been getting cooler.

In some places, a lot cooler.

Springtime weather is getting harder to distinguish from winter weather. It snowed in Britain in June. Kids built snowmen. Temperatures here in the northern tier of states have cooled substantially.

As Robert Felix just reported in his authoritative iceagenow.com, on various days is June of 2009 there were record low temperatures in 18 states; record low temperatures in 15 states; record low temperatures in 24 states; record low temperatures in 11 states; record low max temperatures in 20 states; record low temperatures in seven states; and record low temperatures in 10 states.

Despite all this, with a straight face, the Obama administration prattles on about a disastrous global warming that just plain isn't happening. [link]
Global warming isn't happening.

Yet Obama prattles on ...

If all he wants is peace, then propping up the ruthless regime in Tehran seems to be the right thing to do. Regardless how many protesters are slaughtered in the streets.

Obama Warns Against Direct Involvement by U.S. in Iran

Remember, This Is Intended To SAVE Us Money

Obamacare. It's rapidly becoming the most expensive government project in history (next to WWII). And, according to the latest analysis, it won't come close to doing what its proponents tell us its supposed to do.

The shocking news:
CBO: ObamaCare will cost $1T, still leaves 30 million uninsured
By Ed Morrissey, Hot Air

The Congressional Budget Office has tried crunching the numbers on Barack Obama’s plan to reform health care, which Obama says will save money and protect the uninsured. The CBO director on his official blog says, “Wrong!” — on both counts. The reform plan will cost more than a trillion dollars over the next decade, and while it will put 39 million people on insurance plans, it will drive off more than 23 million more from their existing plans. The cost doesn’t include Obama’s public plan option, either.

A net decrease of 16-17 million would still leave about 30 million uninsured, according to the figures thrown around by ObamaCare advocates. It would simply exchange individuals in the uninsured category, and those most likely to lose their coverage would be those in lower-income jobs, as well as people working in small businesses and startups.

We would spend a trillion dollars to achieve a net result of solving a third of the uninsured problem. We could have exceeded that by simply paying for private insurance. [link] [my emphasis]
Madness. Absolute madness.

This was unthinkable just a decade ago. Now it's a reality.

Government-run television news. A la Hugo Chavez:
ABC TURNS PROGRAMMING OVER TO OBAMA; NEWS TO BE ANCHORED FROM INSIDE WHITE HOUSE
The Drudge Report

On the night of June 24, the media and government become one, when ABC turns its programming over to President Obama and White House officials to push government run health care -- a move that has ignited an ethical firestorm!

Highlights on the agenda:

ABCNEWS anchor Charlie Gibson will deliver WORLD NEWS from the Blue Room of the White House.

The network plans a primetime special -- 'Prescription for America' -- originating from the East Room, exclude opposing voices on the debate.

The Director of Communications at the White House Office of Health Reform is Linda Douglass, who worked as a reporter for ABC News from 1998-2006.

I can't help but wonder what it is about Washington D.C. that makes good, upstanding conservative Republicans turn into lying, cheating, carousing frauds. The GOP needs some rules. If you sunsabitchas can't keep it in your pants, then get out and go home.

Sadly, another one bites the dust:
Ensign Acknowledges Extramarital Affair
By Chris Cillizza and Paul Kane, Washington Post

Sources in Washington and Nevada say Republican Sen. John Ensign, a rising star in the Republican Party considering a 2012 presidential bid will hold a press conference later today in which he will acknowledge an extramarital affair.

Elected in 2000 and reelected in 2006, Ensign has been a leading conservative among Senate Republicans, playing a key role in demanding the resignation of Larry Craig in September 2007. Ensign called Craig a "disgrace" after he was arrested in June 2007 in an airport men's restroom on disorderly conduct charges. Craig resisted the calls from Ensign to resign but retired from the Senate last November. [link]

What an embarrassment. Excommunicate him. Make him go away. Forever.
