Kerry: Big Bucks in Climate Change
Weekly Standard, by Geoffrey Norman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/14/2014 11:11:01 AM

What we usually hear about when the subject is climate change is stuff meant to scare you out of your socks. Rising oceans, violent storms, draughts, famines, plagues of locusts … and so forth. The implied alternative is austerity so severe – no cars, rationed electricity, smaller houses, once-a-week cold showers, etc. – that people are inclined to think, “Well, that will never happen,” and tune out. Secretary of State John Kerry is a believer and a scold of those who are called “deniers” to smear them as akin to those who believe the Holocaust never happened. Mr. Kerry is,

Comments:
Norman states: "One trembles to contemplate the size of his personal carbon footprint..." Finally someone points out the utter hypocrisy of that moron Kerry.

FOLLOW THE MONEY:

The ONLY way these "green energy" projects will be used is when FORCED BY LAW. They are ALL more expensive and less convenient and less useful than conventional sources.

If they were economical, they would and will be used. As it is, they must be FORCED on us, and the government is choosing who makes a fortune from our misery and loss of money and freedom.

In most cases, tax money goes either to subsidize a losing product (electric cars) or to directly pay a company from the US Treasury. Of course, most of those receiving huge payments are Obama political donors. Just a coincidence that many go out of business after spending all the government money - much on huge salaries for the leaders. Then there are the laws that require electrical utilities to buy wind and solar power at exorbitant rates, whether it makes any sense at all - like being forced into buying lots of very expensive wind power at night when there is very little demand for power.

Note the connection between the Nevada land grab by the BLM and Harry Reid making money from a Chinese solar farm on BLM land, after the ranchers are forced off. Remember, OUR electric utilities will be forced to buy this extremely expensive solar electricity - with the profits going to China - and to Reid and son.

MMGW is the biggest scam ever run, and we are being screwed daily by it.

Medicare Ban on Sex
Reassignment Surgery Lifted
Associated Press, by Lisa Leff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 5/31/2014 10:01:33 PM     Post Reply
Medicare can no longer automatically deny coverage requests for sex reassignment surgeries, a federal board ruled Friday in a groundbreaking decision that recognizes the procedures are medically necessary for some people who don´t identify with their biological sex. Ruling in favor of a 74-year-old transgender Army veteran whose request to have Medicare pay for her genital reconstruction was denied two years ago, a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services review board said there was no justification for a three-decade-old agency rule excluding such surgeries from treatments covered by the national health program for the

President Obama on Saturday tried to bolster public support for new rules his administration will announce next week on coal-firing power plants, arguing their carbon emissions are a national health crisis – beyond hurting the economy and causing global warming. “We don’t have to choose between the health of our economy and the health of our children,” Obama said in his weekly address. “As president and as a parent, I refuse to condemn our children to a planet that’s beyond fixing.” The cost of carbon pollution “can be measured in lost lives” and roughly “100,000 asthma attacks and 2,100 heart

Sudanese woman Meriam Ibrahim
sentenced to death for apostasy ´to be freed´

Sudan appeared to be bowing to international pressure on Saturday night to free a woman sentenced to death for apostasy. A foreign ministry spokesman said that Meriam Ibrahim would be released and not face further charges. But lawyers for 27-year-old Ms Ibrahim expressed scepticism that she would be freed so quickly. “It’s a statement to silence the international media,” said Elshareef Ali Mohammed. “This is what the government does. We will not believe that she is being freed until she walks out of the prison." He said he had even heard reports that the spokesman was in the UK on

Outcry on Hill Over Swap

Reveals Lacking POW Strategy
PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 5/31/2014 9:08:59 PM     Post Reply
As the years of Bowe Bergdahl’s captivity wore on, two fundamental sentiments floated around Capitol Hill: the desire to bring the Army sergeant home without capitulating to the Taliban, and the frustration that the capture of one soldier revealed a lack of cohesive strategy to recover prisoners of war. The only American POW in Afghanistan, Bergdahl wandered off his base in eastern Afghanistan in June 2009 and was captured by Taliban forces. A proof-of-life video, the first received in three years, surfaced in January, reigniting attention on Bergdahl’s case. “To every single person who worked so hard to make this recovery possible,

President Obama has been accused of violating U.S. laws by approving a prisoner exchange of five Guantanamo detainees for the release of America´s only prisoner of war, Republicans claim. John McCain welcomed the release of soldier Bowe Bergdahl, who was held for five years by Islamic Islamists, but said the men being freed had ´the blood of Americans on their hands´. The five Afghans are among the most senior members of the Taliban being held at the controversial camp, and include one who had direct ties to Osama bin Laden. As well as warning of the potential threat releasing these men could have,

Obama Gets Foreign Policy
Credit Where None Is Due
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 5/30/2014 10:32:49 PM     Post Reply
Foreign Policy: Lack of substance is finally catching up to President Obama´s hype. The best his defenders can come up with is that he doesn´t get credit for his non-accomplishments in world affairs. Secretary of State John Kerry doesn´t think the president "takes enough credit for the successes that are on the table right now." Kerry argues that the situation in Ukraine, where a guerrilla war is widening and a newly aggressive Russia is poised to invade, is a U.S. success; so is Syria, where the U.S. was humiliated for saying one thing on chemical weapons, doing the opposite, then allowing Moscow

Poll: The Number One
Problem In Politics Is…

Despite Sen. Harry Reid’s near-daily speeches about the “un-American” Koch brothers and the vast amount of money they give to the Republican Party – all while the Democrats take billions from other interest groups – Americans are still not convinced that campaign donations are the number one problem in politics right now. That designation goes to media bias, according to 48% of the 1,000 likely voters polled for a Rasmussen Report. Big campaign contributions earned the #2 spot, with 44% of those polled. Among people who identify as Tea Party members, media bias is an even bigger problem – 77% say it’s

‘State Department got punked’:
US takes heat for boosting lawyer

A day after the U.S. Marine jailed in Mexico fired his attorney amid growing ethical concerns, the State Department is facing questions over why it had included the lawyer on an official list of legal contacts for Americans in a jam. Marine veteran Andrew Tahmooressi apparently reached out to the lawyer, Alejandro Osuna, after seeing his name on an online list of attorneys posted by the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana. But according to Tahmooressi´s mother and those working with him, the lawyer soon afterward urged him to lie to Mexican officials about his circumstances -- which made the Marine uncomfortable

The team behind hero horse California Chrome is growing in confidence about the prospects of their colt winning the elusive Triple Crown.

Snoop Dogg was also joined by MC Hammer, Ron Conway and Diana Nyad, among others.

In response to #MarineHeldInMexico : It sure would be nice for President Pen-and-Phone to speak up in a few situations where he actually could make an immediate difference, without trampling on the Constitution. Maybe that´s why he doesn´t say anything. It´s no fun unless he can disrupt the separation of powers, make a government agency bigger, or turn the situation into a slam against his political enemies. I´d also like to see President Obama use his fabled pen and phone to do something for Meriam Ibrahim, held prisoner by the barbarians of Sudan and just forced to give birth in

The bizarre tale of
America’s last known POW

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the last known American POW, was freed after five years in captivity — an ordeal that began and ended in Afghanistan under a shroud of mystery. The Taliban turned over Bergdahl Saturday morning to US special forces in exchange for five notorious Islamic militants who had been held at Guantanamo Bay and will be sent to Qatar, where they will stay for a year under the terms of the trade. At least one of the prisoners, ranking Taliban leader Khairullah Khairkhwa, had direct ties to Osama bin Laden. Bergdahl was picked up by helicopter in western Afghanistan, near the Pakistan border.

If one sets out to destroy the core pillars of a society, to incrementally break down the values of a country, and to dishearten its inhabitants, then Barack Hussein Obama has been a sterling success. He is no amateur; he is not a feckless individual who doesn´t know what he is doing. His actions are deliberate, and his goals are in direct opposition to the vast majority of the American people.

Day 1,956 of his presidency was not too kind to President Obama. Having to announce within a four-hour span that he had lost both an embattled Cabinet secretary and his chief spokesman, Obama looked Friday like a man gamely trying to get a stalled administration back on track.He entered the week still stuck with low approval ratings and facing fierce criticism of his policies both at home and abroad. On Wednesday, he tried to chart a new course internationally with a West Point speech setting out a new foreign policy. On Thursday, he dealt with widespread criticism of the speech.

WASHINGTON — Feeling the weight of the world on his shoulders, a weary President Obama says his fondest dream is getting a chance to take a stroll by himself away from the White House. Obama — who rides in motorcades, jets on Air Force One and is under constant guard — says he’d take a solo hike across the National Mall, if only the Secret Service would give him the chance. “I would go take a walk,” the president said Friday on “Live with Kelly and Michael” when asked the one thing he’d like to do if only he could. “I would just

Excerpts of Hillary Clinton´s forthcoming memoir obtained by Politico conflict with the factual record about what happened during and after the 2012 Benghazi terror attack. Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., who sits on the newly formed Benghazi select committee and the House Intelligence Committee, told Fox News before the excerpts were released that he is concerned the administration has not fully grasped the impact of the terrorist assault. "We know that intelligence analysts on the ground knew instantaneously that this was Al Qaeda and its affiliates who had led this attack. And yet it took an awfully long time -- indeed today, it´s

Is the end near? Scientists at Duke University say the world is on the brink of its sixth great extinction, since certain species of plants and animals are now dying out at least 1,000 times faster than they did before humans came into existence. The study, published Thursday in the journal Science, measured the the rate at which species are disappearing from Earth. In 1995, the researchers found that the pre-human rate of extinctions was roughly 1. Now, that rate is about 100 to 1,000. Stuart Pimm, the study's lead author, said habitat loss is mostly to blame for the increasing death rates. As humans continue to alter and destroy more land,

If liberals deserve kudos for anything, it’s for consistently and successfully politicizing crises, perverting truth, and demonizing political opponents. Thanks to Rahm Emanuel, America knows that the liberal mindset is to ‘never let a serious crisis to go to waste.’ (Snip) And why not hammer home the point that the microcosm of the system Barack Obama touts as the answer to 300 million Americans’ healthcare woes has proven to be incapable of caring for at minimum 40 dead veterans who suffered and died needlessly while waiting for months on a secret list? Instead, rather than point out what is powerfully

President Obama's weekly remarks Hi, everybody. I’m here at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., visiting with some kids being treated here all the time for asthma and other breathing problems. Often, these illnesses are aggravated by air pollution — pollution from the same sources that release carbon and contribute to climate change. And for the sake of all our kids, we’ve got to do more to reduce it.

When one thinks of mass murder, Hitler comes to mind. If not Hitler, then Tojo, Stalin, or Mao. Credit is given to the 20th-century totalitarians as the worst species of tyranny to have ever arisen. However, the alarming truth is that Islam has killed more than any of these, and may surpass all of them combined in numbers and cruelty. The enormity of the slaughters of the "religion of peace" are so far beyond comprehension that even honest historians overlook the scale. When one looks beyond our myopic focus, Islam is the greatest killing machine in the history of mankind,

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel arrived in Afghanistan Sunday, one day after the White House announced that it had secured the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, America´s only prisoner of war in Afghanistan, and four days after President Obama announced a drawdown of U.S. forces that would leave fewer than 1,000 troops in the country by the end of 2016. Hagel defended the Pentagon from criticism for not giving Congress a 30-day notice of the exchange of five detainees from the prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba for Bergdahl by saying that officials believed that the soldier´s life was in danger.
