Personal Liberty Poll
Oh, the weather outside is frightful.
But for Obama, it seems delightful!
Since he knows we’ve no place to go,
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
Greens show no signs of desisting,
As Gore’s malarkey’s persisting.
So the power’s turned way down low.
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
It’s so cold in here that you need mittens.
And, my dear, your nose is frostbitten.
But as long as Greens shovel the dough,
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
My father used to say: “Make hay when the sun is shining!” It carried meaning, because we really did cut and bail hay on our 80-acre farm.
Such common sense is lost on the Greens. Even if hell were freezing over, they would think only of making more money for themselves via what used to be called global warming. (The new term is “climate change.”) I believe a Green like former Vice President Al Gore could be caught in a blizzard and before succumbing to hypothermia would Tweet contributors, begging for more money and influence before the oceans swallow the land, before more polar bear cubs drown.
How else can you explain last week when President Barack Obama’s global warming task force huddled together during a blizzard in Washington that closed down the Federal government’s offices?
CNSNews.com reported: “[N]either snow nor sleet could keep members of the State, Local, and Tribal Leaders Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience from their appointed round at the White House.”
Wait a minute! Obama, aka Big Brother, has had to change some wording. The words “global warming” are nowhere to be found in the task force’s name. That’s no big deal for a dictator, really; Josef Stalin did it all the time.
Never mind that Obama embarrasses himself each week with either his ego (taking a selfie at Nelson Mandela’s memorial) or his habitual lies (Obamacare, Benghazi, etc.). But he had a “global warming” task force meeting during a blizzard that even Captain Robert Falcon Scott, who led a doomed expedition to the South Pole, would have refused to attend.
Recently, we’ve seen record cold temperatures. That’s bad PR if you’re on the Green Team. People might jump to the conclusion that, in fact, there is no global warming. Thus, the Greens quickly proclaimed: From now on, “global warming” will be called “climate change.”
Such a savior the President is for the Greens, who have backed him these past six years. It used to be that you could identify global warming only if there was a heat wave or a relentless drought. Then, environmentalists changed the definition to include hurricanes and tornadoes (both also absolute proof of global warming).
All of those things covered on the endless 24-7 news cycle indicated our planet was boiling over, that our children and our grandchildren were going to die like dehydrated camels limping across the scorched Sahara.
But it’s not global warming; and it isn’t limited to heat waves, drought, hurricanes and tornadoes. It is any weather change, including record low temperatures and, especially, blizzards. How stupid of me to believe it was a cold winter! Big Brother tells me it is climate change.
With the name change, Obama can make hay when it’s raining and even if it’s snowing. Obama can bet red or black at the roulette wheel and come up a winner. For the White House those killer blizzards that swept across most of North America recently are indisputable evidence of climate change.
No wonder business is booming for Greens like Gore. Losing the Presidential race has been lucrative for Gore. After inventing the Internet, Gore reinvented himself as the living conscience for all life forms on Earth. Bloomberg estimated Gore’s net worth at $1.7 million in 1999. Today, Gore’s fortune “may exceed $200 million.” That begs the question: Just how big a carbon footprint is Gore making? In “the world according to Gore,” you can never be too rich or too Green. They go hand in hand like a dead chicken and a sharp hatchet.
The Washington Post pointed this out in a headline on Nov. 25: “Al Gore: Climate change should be media’s ‘No. 1′ story.” The article quoted Gore: “Simply assuming that this is an interesting controversy that we should check in on occasionally is not correct. The survival of human civilization is at risk. The news media should be making this existential crisis the No. 1 topic they cover.”
“Climate change” is all a bunch of made-up nonsense from mad scientists, crocked politicians and the liberal media, which back both. That became apparent when the problem was no longer called “global warming.” And it became obvious when scientific data showed that Antarctica registered an unofficial record low temperature of minus 135.8 degrees Fahrenheit — the coldest temperature ever recorded on the planet.
But remember, global warming is now climate change, which includes global cooling. For Gore, all weather is a game changer for the planet. But people who still think for themselves and don’t believe everything the mass media tells them know better. That was pointed out on Townhall.com by Krista Kafer, a senior fellow at the Independent Women’s Forum and the executive director of the Colorado Future Project:
The global warming movement may be less a scientific endeavor and more a political game plan for the redistribution of wealth, higher taxation and government regulation, severe limits on oil and gas production, and restrictions on personal freedoms. Perhaps the alarmism isn’t a delusion but a tactic. How else does one explain why the prophets of global warming among the Hollywood and DC elite decline to live the lifestyle they advocate for others? As Al Gore heats his 10,000 square foot house for one on this chilly afternoon, does give a thought to the contradiction between his beliefs, his actions, and the weather outside?
Who in the world loves lying, rich liberals more than Obama? No doubt, Obama understands the game plan that Gore used and wants to capitalize on it when he takes leave of the Oval Office. In order to do so, Obama must continue to forget his oath of office and concentrate on what he does best: looking out for himself. So the President has swung into action using his Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Roll Call reported last week: “Communicating about climate change in a way that helps citizens understand how it affects them is one challenge inherent in the Obama administration’s three-pronged climate action effort.”
Replace “communicating” with “brainwashing” and then replace “climate action effort” with “higher taxes,” and you understand what the EPA has planned.
It is not just Federal agencies that Obama has on his side when it comes to saving humans, whales, elephants — all God’s creatures great and small. He also has the support of a lot of rich activists. Billionaire Tom Steyer had the President’s back when he told a Washington summit earlier this month: “Keystone XL fails his climate test and certainly is not in the interests of the United States.”
That’s hardly a shock. Last summer, Obama himself said of the pipeline, which would carry oil from Canada to the Gulf Coast: “Our national interest will be served only if this project doesn’t significantly exacerbate the problem of carbon pollution.”
If only just one reporter would ask Obama what will satisfy America’s national interests when it comes to energy! What would be the President’s answer? Is it Saudi Arabia, which is on the verge of imploding? Or Iraq, which has imploded? Perhaps it’s Iran, which may or may not want to build and use nuclear weapons, but may sell us oil in the future? Perhaps all three would be his answer, because they are all Muslim nations and Obama loves Islam.
Then again, does Obama really care? Gore is rich. After serving out his second term, Obama will be ultra-rich. And if there is no oil from Canada, that’s just tough luck for Americans huddled in frigid rooms, as far as Obama is concerned.
As for the politicians we trusted, they will be in their exclusive mansions, living it up and eyeballing their portfolios. Come Christmastime, they might gather together and sing: “Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!”
Yours in good times and bad,
