Organizing For Action Sponsors Climate Change Rally In Washington, D.C.; No One Shows Up


Organizing For Action, the community organizing nonprofit that morphed from a campaign vehicle for President Barack Obama into a “non-partisan” Obama agenda pusher, scheduled and promoted a rally this week to galvanize support for the President’s ambitious plan to regulate “climate change” out of existence.

The event’s Aug. 13 start time came and went — and not a single living soul showed up at the Georgetown Waterfront to bolster Obama’s climate change agenda.

The embarrassment compelled Organizing For Action to remove the event invitation (note the URL) from its website, but FOX News’ Phil Kerpen tweeted a screen grab:

Political blogger Moe Lane correctly zeroed in on Organizing For Action’s modus operandi, noting that, for Obama, policy itself doesn’t matter — but finding a policy talking point that galvanizes low-information voters does.

[I]t should surprise nobody — including the, ah, enthusiasts over at OfA, bless their hearts — that global warming doesn’t have nearly the same bite to it that the Left desperately wants it to. The polling is consistent: global warming — or climate change, or whatever the latest buzzword is/will be — is at the bottom of any list of things that people worry about, or prioritize. It is thus unsurprising that an admittedly unpleasant sudden rain shower would stop people in Georgetown from attending: after all, OfA doesn’t really want to talk about global warming at all. It’s just that the two things that they should be talking about — the economy, and health care — are also two things that OfA does not dare talk about, largely because President Barack Obama clearly has no idea how to go about repairing the damage that he’s caused to either.

The takeaway? If the Obama Administration and its backers strike out on a community-organizing effort that, like climate change, fails to captivate anybody, the fix is simple: just redact and refocus.

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.

    From the OP:

    “…the President’s ambitious plan to regulate “climate change” out of existence.”

    Interesting. Not only does he think he is king but now that he is God?

    Most of us LIKE the seasons and would like to keep them around thanks. Though if you really want to get rid of climate change just turn off the sun.

    • chocopot

      Even the low information voters are starting to recognize this whole business as a scam and a bunch of hooey.

    • Speak2Truth

      Remember how the ancient Mayan priests would rip the beating heart out of a human being each morning to ensure the Sun would rise? In payment for ‘saving’ them, The People were required to give the rulers an their priests all the wealth. After all, if the Sun didn’t come up, what would you need with the wealth anyway?

      Yes, this game has been played before.

      • Virgil Lipinski

        I nominate Oblahblah & Holder & Hillary & PeLousy & Reid & Rangel & Schumer to donate their hearts so the Sun will rise for at least one more week!

  • Sarah Conner

    Winter,Spring,Summer and Fall….that’s what climate change is to me…

    • wavesofgrain

      Perfect!!! Love it!!

  • Johnny Geetar

    HA! Even the far, far, FAR left is no longer buying Barack’s climate change meatsockery. North Georgia’s August temps are in the 80’s during the day, and the 60’s at night. AUGUST, when we should be getting blistered right now. So much for global warming…….


      But, many times they’ll tell ‘ya, even the cooler temps are due to too much greenhouse gasses & cite some desperate “scientist” who wants to keep their government funding for his vital research! Faced with reality when their models inevitably fail, they just fudge the data to fit… Too much rain, too little rain, too hot, too cold, hurricanes, earthquakes…it’s all Global BlahBlah, climate Kookiness!!

      • topmah

        Too true, Baloney–my meteorologist son-in-law got his masters at Creighton University–when his professors were asked about ‘global warming’, they laughed & said that it was nothing more than fodder for funding & the scam would continue as long as the $$$ were there. As for fudging the data, now we’re hearing about the NWS using temp stats gathered from airports, inner city spots, i. e., anywhere it’s apt to be hotter than the surrounding areas–all to support the bogus claim of rising temps. ‘Climate kookiness’ indeed!


          Hey, I’d love to see economically renewable energy sources, too, but I fear the dark forces have blocked these things from happening, going back to Tesla, who was able to tap into the electro-magnetic field of the earth to get free clean energy. There is a fellow who says he knows how he did it, but they (the govt.) won’t let him get it out there..

          The worst thing about the Left these days is their astonishing propensity to stick with an ideology no matter what the facts or truth says….they will lie & obfuscate to defend the indefensible over & over…they also know with the media on their side, they have a lot of cover!

      • ChiefBoring

        Remember the “Nuclear Winter” stories, when we were all going to freeze? It even made the cover of Popular Science! (sarcasm.)

    • jocasseejo

      August in SC is usually breathtaking it’s so hot~I was outside this afternoon and it was almost cool like fall!!

  • wavesofgrain

    I sincerely hope our citizens are researching who was behind this entire fear mongering Global Warming scheme. Follow the money trail, folks! Connect the dots! It began with Obama at the helm of the Joyce Foundation funding the Chicago Climate Exchange…

    • rendarsmith

      Look up Maurice Strong

      • wavesofgrain

        Yes, he was an intregal part of this corrupt web….but this admin is performing a conflict of interest and has created a political fear mongering.


      Gore the Phony Bore has made millions with Strong on CCE!!! He won’t debate Lord Monckton!

  • Jake Green

    97% of scientists agree that “Climate Change” is real. That’s like saying 97% of scientists agree the earth is round. Duh, climate changes, always has and always will. Now the issue of man being able to do something about it is truly insane and the height of arrogance. Man is just a flea on the back of the earth we have no power to affect the planet. The planet has been around 4.5 billion years, it has been significantly warmer, and significantly colder all with out the presence of humans. “Climate Change” is nothing more than the issue of the day pushing Socialism as the resolution to a non-existent problem.


      Yes, what you say is true, but, I could never understand why the Greenies do not focus on POLLUTION, instead of warming….there is no doubt our energy sources pollute the air, water, earth & food..this is indisputable & a good enough reason to try to move to cleaner energy, but it msut be economically viable & this is crucial: you gotta get China & India on board…I read the other day that China burns more carbon than the whole Western Hemisphere combined

    • Bill

      You hit the nail on the head, Jake

    • vicki

      Where I come from they call it “seasons” :)

      • Jake Green

        Yeah it seems every summer the “Climate Change” folks come out and tell us the sky is falling, we’re all going to fry. Uh hey, can any of these “brain trust’s” tell what the correct temperature is suppose to be on any given day….didn’t think so.

        • ChiefBoring

          The high in Georgia for August 16 is 64 degrees! How’s that for warmth?!

    • Robert Messmer

      I seem to recall from history lessons that at one time 100% of the scientists agreed the Earth was flat and that the sun and the rest of the universe revolved around us. And then there was the case of Louis Pasteur and that 100% of all medical experts thought he was wrong about germs and hand washing. So just because a lot of people believe, agree on something, don’t make it necessarily so. Down here in Paradise every Hurricane Season we are told that we are past due for a really bad season. Locally we still are although some places such as New Orleans et al are not. Still don’t understand why wasted all that money rebuilding below sea level instead of re-locating in-land but that is the government for you.

  • Sarah417

    The MSM cited the date as being the reason for the no-show. According to them, no one shows up for anything in DC in August. That’s when everyone goes on vacation. So, knowing this why did they plan it for August?. Duh.

    • independent thinker

      That is just the excuse the MSM came up with to show why the “event” was a failure.

  • CatGman

    “…the President’s ambitious plan to regulate “climate change” out of existence.”
    I think the President’s plan is to regulate the USA out of existence.

    • Bill

      Good analogy, Cat

    • rick0857

      No just the parts of America that ACTUALLY TURN A PROFIT.

  • Alan Williams

    Well there’s your problem right there…they made it for 8am…..who the hell gets up that early to show up at 8am???? =P


      Can’t get up that early because climate change has messed with the rooster’s crowing at sunrise,right?

      • rick0857

        No they can’t get up that early because Jerry Springer was on TV until 3AM and Maury doesn’t start until 10 or 11 AM so there’s no reason to get up that early. Besides welfare payments are all done electronically so they don’t have to go anywhere to pick up a check or anything.


          Hey, they should’ve done like ACORN does & paid people to attend!

  • rick0857

    This is why nobody showed up in case you’re interested;

    • Alan

      That had to be one of the most terrifying spectacles I’ve ever watched, and I’ve watched some mind-bogglingly horrid things in my time….lmao! Why didn’t anyone ever tell me that rocks are so full of life??? Now I’m ashamed for all the times I’ve urinated on one of them…! Thanks Rick! That really made my day! :)

      • rick0857

        Glad to help sir.

    • vicki

      I couldn’t watch the whole thing. Stupidity at that level is just too painful.

    • ChiefBoring

      People that crazed are allowed to run loose? And why are they disturbing the serenity of those old trees?

    • Robert Messmer

      OK entertaining in a sort of Blair Witch kind of way but actually scary not hollywood phony but fail to see how NC loonies had anything to do with failed rally in Georgetown?

      • rick0857

        They are all tree hugging climate change whacko’s

  • Pamela K. Cahoon Laub

    If a tree falls in the forest and nobody hears it does it still make a noise? BHO doesn’t care. He’ll continue “pushing his trees in the forest” even if no one cares to hear.

    They forgot to offer demonstrators money!

    This just goes to show you, that Even His ” Flapping Lips & Unfulfilled promises, Are taking it’s toll on His Brainwashed Zombies & Comrades!

  • Quester55

    Just Think, If OBAMA’S Brain-Dead Followers had Listened to Us & our Truth, last Year, We’d all be on the road to Recovery & today’s Problems would have been Smaller or Nonexistent!
    As for this Current Weather SCAM, NO ONE COUNTRY started this Weather Cycle & No one NATION will ever Stop it!
    Stopping Weather Changes, Solar Flares, Or the Sun’s Flipping over (as some Say Will Happen) Is an Activity, out of the Control of Men, It would be Easier to STOP The EARTH Rotation, Than to Change our Climate from the Direction it’s Going.
    Ever Notice how When One Baby is Born Anywhere on this earth, Someone Else Dies of Old Age?
    It’s Called Balance & it Get’s overlooked All of the Time!

  • Quester55

    The Bottom Line, To: Obama, The message is LOUD & Clear, WE ALL ARE TIRED OF YOUR LIES!
    And to those that are INVADING our Great Nation, Our Ancestor’s Placed a BOUNTY on The Rodents that where Taking over our Farmlands, GO HOME, Before History Repeats Itself!!

  • Kat

    You and all UN people have not got a clue about what the world will throw at us in the way of the elements. Only God knows! The UN sucks big time and only wants Americans to PAY UP! What about China and all of the rest of the world? BS is what you are preaching just to get more American dollars.Go after China and Russia, see what they cough up!
