The Environmental Movement:
How Corrupt Is It?

Powerline, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 12/16/2013 11:33:01 AM

We have written many times about the corruption of the global warming movement. Billions and billions of dollars are being poured into the pockets of global warming alarmists, because they perform such a valuable service: they help to persuade voters that governments should be given greater control over the world’s economies. What’s a few billion dollars when trillions are at stake? We have written mostly about the corruption of Greens in America, where Al Gore has become a standing joke. But the Daily Mail has performed the valuable service of exposing the corruption that is rampant among British environmentalists; specifically, global

For environmental groups, it´s about the money. The "environment" is merely the avenue to get it.

The darned shame of it all is that the environment does matter. I remember when the local creek was flow of foam from deterrent. I remember playing in the DDT fog every summer.

These corrupt pinheads are destroying everything in their path, the economy, and ultimately the environment. Our ability to be environmentally friendly is directly tied to our ability to afford to do so. Destroy prosperity and we will be forced into survival mode where the environment will take a back seat if an seat.

You think Obamacare was bad, wait until this scandal finishes off anything that might be left behind. This is nothing more complicated than the theft of the product of hard work, stolen from the creators by those who are taking the less arduous path, living off of the toil of others.

I would like to know where #2 was playing in a DDT fog. The entire story about DDT was a lie. Rachael Carson redacted much of her assertions. The banning of DDT indirectly caused the deaths of 2 million persons in Sub-Sahara Africa. My statements can be proven if researched. I can write pages about this topic and the results of banning DDT.

atually, there WERE mobile DDT foggers at one time, intended to disrupt the mosquito population. Which it did. You can, if you are willing to do a pass through a search engine (I use dogpile.com) even come across pictures.
and yes, Rachel Carson was an evil lying creep who condemned untold millions to death. And felt noble for it, probably.
Which is the problem. Like many others here, I know True Believers In All The Green Goddess Stuff. Who truly believe that nearly *any* actions or statements are acceptable if they serve the "Greater Good" of the Envionmental Movement. Nice people too, some of them. Not all. Yes, like author here I have differences with GreenPeace, Natural Resources Defense Council, and many others, and the out-and-out creeps, thieves and liars. But I´ve also seen good cropland turned into parking lots, fishing streams turned into ditches filled with plastic bags, and a community destroyed for short-term benefit. When the enviro-whackos come by with their propaganda, they find a willing ear reinforced not only with the garbage in the schools, but what they see around them.
"forward" isn´t always an improvement

That sounds like the setup line from Ed McMahon to Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show. I think the answer from Johnny would be:

They´re so corrupt even they can´t stop stealing from each other.
or
They´re so corrupt even the Mob is taking evening classes from them!

#4, I well remember the mobile foggers that came down the streets on summer nights at twilight, in an effort to kill the mosquitos in the coastal area where we lived.

The kids used to run out to see it, and the more daring ones jumped around in the fog, waving their arms.

We still have a city fogger truck that comes around to our neighborhood. We live in a low area with a creek running through it. I have no idea if it does any good.

An unlikely alliance is forming between conservatives and liberals rightly asking whether it makes sense that America has the highest incarceration rate in the world. One out of every 100 American adults is behind bars, according to The Washington Post. Besides the tremendous cost of housing an inmate in a maximum-security federal prison—pegged at around $33,000 per year—the sheer volume of the U.S. prison population warrants a closer look. Why are so many people behind bars? The discretion federal judges used to have when sentencing individuals changed when Congress enacted the 1984 Sentencing Reform Act, imposing mandatory minimum sentencing for

There are things that people know, or think that they know, about Rahm Emanuel: He is voluble, tireless, notoriously profane. And yet, when I met him last month, all the stories hadn’t prepared me for his intensity in person. A conversation with Emanuel is a physical experience. When he has strong feelings about a subject—which is often—he frequently sits on the very edge of his chair, emphasizing his point through proximity. At one point, he waved his finger inches from my face, Lyndon Johnson–style. Emanuel’s forceful personality is especially at odds with the surprisingly Zen atmosphere of the mayoral offices

In the online-only "Overtime" portion of his HBO show Real Time, host Bill Maher weighed in on the Mozilla controversy, and did not react in a way that you would think. Maher seemed to disagree with gay rights activists for targeting Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich because of a 2008 donation to support a ballot initiative that would ban same-sex marriage in California. "Well, and he gave it when President Obama was still against gay marriage. So, I don´t think it´s very fair," Carrie Sheffield of Forbes said. "Good point," Maher responded.

Stupid Interviewer Tricks

David Letterman, 67, announced on Thursday that he’ll be retiring sometime next year. But it’s been an interesting, if raw and painful decade for the chat show host leading up to his decision, particularly after he did something that Johnny Carson never did on air: he dropped the mask and revealed his misanthropic inner self to the world. (Snip) So it’s ironic — particularly given that irony was how he built his career — that David Letterman’s luster was permanently scraped away on October 27th 2006, with just one question from a very different television interviewer who happened to be

With waves of American college graduates about to hit the job market, it’s a good bet most of them don’t think of the controversial conservative author, Charles Murray, as their mentor. The W. H. Brady Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and author of several books – including Coming Apart (about divided white America) and The Bell Curve (with Richard Herrnstein) – is hardly known as a warm and fuzzy job counselor. Yet, in The Curmudgeon’s Guide to Getting Ahead, a new primer for workplace newbies, Murray dispenses some of the best advice today’s overly coddled millennial grads haven’t yet heard. Related: The

Is it too farfetched to connect the dots between a brilliant Wall Street Journal op-ed by Charles Koch, the chairman and CEO of Koch Industries, and the continued sluggish recovery in jobs, business investment, and the overall economy? I don’t think so. In his piece, Mr. Koch seems to make a plea for a big dose of free-market capitalism. He argues, “The central belief and fatal conceit of the current administration is that you are incapable of running your own life, but those in power are capable of running it for you. This is the essence of big government and

Gender Confusion and the
Complicity of Public Schools
American Thinker, by Lee Culpepper    Original Article

Last week, the national press reported on a 56-year-old high school biology teacher in California who plans to undergo a sex-change operation (i.e. cosmetic surgery) and to return to the classroom appearing as a woman. “To have a teacher be authentic ultimately is good for students and for the community,” said Jennifer Levi of Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders, or GLAAD, an advocacy group in Boston. Sadly, the situation is far more complicated and confusing than advocates of gender confusion or their allies in the media will admit. Although the American Psychiatric Association dropped the diagnosis of gender identity disorder in

After months of criticizing what they see as a bullying state bureaucracy, Lou and Linda Pelletier — the parents of 15-year-old Justina — found themselves in a recent court ruling portrayed as repeatedly getting in the way of returning their daughter Connecticut. In last week´s ruling, leaked to the media, Juvenile Court Judge Joseph Johnston said the Pelletiers had been verbally abusive, made threats and generally impeded progress. The parents, he said, "either directly or indirectly, continue to engage in very concerning conduct that does not give this court any confidence they will comply with conditions of custody." Johnston awarded

Despite what organizations like the Council on American-Islamic Relations say, the film "Honor Diaries" is about the abuses that women face around the world. In an interview with the Washington Examiner, human rights attorney Paula Kweskin, a writer and producer for the film, said it was clear CAIR had not seen the actual film and was trying to silence debate. “I mean, one of the most engaging parts about this film is that it centers on a salon of women engaging and talking candidly,” Kweskin said. “And they don’t all agree with one another, but they respect one another and they’re talking

The Inspector General found inappropriate criteria were used to select organizations for further review – he did not refer to it as targeting.” “Yes, inappropriate criteria were used. I don’t think I used the word target, but I do acknowledge that applications were delayed unnecessarily and for too long.” “I have never said there was targeting.” –IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, congressional testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, March 25, 2014 What’s in a phrase?

Over the last two weeks, New York Magazine’s Jonathan Chait and The Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates, two of the internet’s most admired liberal journalists, have engaged in an extended back-and-forth about the legitimacy of public critiques of cultural dysfunction in poor, inner-city African-American culture — and particularly the kind of critiques offered by President Obama, who often speaks exhortatively about personal and parental responsibility in addresses to black audiences. My impression (drawn from Twitter) is that many readers following the debate felt that Coates essentially won it with his most recent entry, a rich brief for the proposition that even (or

In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools.

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal.

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths. We also learned that the president was vain enough to asked the networks to cover his speech in prime time, but

Bevin has said he didn´t know it was a rally supporting cockfighting and thought it was a "state´s rights" rally. After ducking other calls for comment, Bevin went on WHAS radio´s "Terry Meiners Show" on Thursday to talk about the rally, cockfighting and other things. "I´ve never been to a cockfight, I don´t condone cockfighting, but here´s the thing: I´m not going to disparage people for exercising their First Amendment rights,"
