When asked by skeptics to address the doubts surrounding the Religion of Man-made Global Warming, Al Gore and his climate crusaders on the left screach "the debate is over!"
Now, a series of emails hacked from some of these very same crusaders at the UN-backed Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) exposes their manipulation and omission of data to support their preconceived conclusions, tactics used to stifle skeptics, and attempts to cover up their complicity in committing pseudoscientific fraud.
Although the Mainstream Media once again ignore a story that doesn't fit their Eco-Nazi narrative, you can read about it here , here and here.
Before we commit economic suicide and waste trillions of dollars in the hope that it might somehow make the planet one degree cooler in ten years, let's at least see the above-pictured charlatans for who they really are: one is a pudgy, scheming, comically angry homunculus. The other is from a childrens' TV special.

D.C. sniper John Allen Muhammad was executed by lethal injection last night for murdering 11 people in Virginia, Maryland, and D.C. in 2002 (after a murder spree in Louisiana and Alabama). The former Nation of Islam member and self-proclaimed jihadist had no apologies.
Major Nidal Malik Hasan shot and killed 13 fellow soldiers at Fort Hood last week while shouting "Allahu Akbar." I'm going to go out on a limb that the politically correct mainstream media won't, and call him a "jihadist." Maybe those 20 emails to the al-Qaeda cleric in Yemen will back me up here. Or the Powerpoint presentation Hasan gave at Walter Reed about beheading infidels, resulting in NO action from the Army (since any whistleblower would risk being labeled 'insensitive,' investigated for harrassment, and penalized on his/her next evaluation report... since Hasan is a Muslim. I served long enough as an Army officer to know that's the insane P.C. climate that our senior political and military leaders demand).
Sgt Hasan Akbar was sentenced to death for killing two soldiers and wounding 14 more during a grenade and rifle attack in Kuwait just before the 2003 Iraq invasion. I was in the desert, one camp over from where this occurred. Again, since he is a Muslim who killed non-Muslims because they were non-Muslims, I'm going to go ahead and call him a jihadist.

Reprinted and linked below is an article from Foxnews.com (scroll down; passages highlighted in bold type by me). Note that, once again, this subject is conspicuously absent from Main Stream Media coverage.
But first, allow me to go big-picture and connect the dots:
- The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), championed by Democrats in Congress and signed by Jimmy Carter in 1977, has for decades forced banks to give out home loans to people who couldn't afford to repay them.
- Banks that refused to play along were attacked by groups like ACORN and penalized by Congress.
- This government-mandated and government-regulated artificial marketplace for home loans could not ultimately sustain itself. The result: the sub-prime mortgage crisis when the U.S. housing bubble finally burst in 2006-2007.
- The subprime mortgage crisis, in turn, triggered the current economic recession (wholly or in large part).
- The current economic recession was the primary reason for Barack Obama winning the Presidency in 2008.
- Barack Obama has longstanding ties with ACORN (read about that here).
- Barney Frank (D-MA) is leading the charge among Democrats in Congress to pass the "Community Reinvestment Modernization Act of 2009." The bill's purpose is "to close the wealth gap in the United States" by increasing "home ownership and small business ownership for low- and moderate-income borrowers and persons of color." Read more here. Note how Democrats can paint anyone who isn't a socialist as a raaaaacist!
- The Community Reinvestment Modernization Act of 2009 will expand the CRA's enforced bad lending practices to non-bank institutions including credit unions, insurance companies, and mortgage lenders. All of these institutions will be able to avoid penalties..... by giving money to ACORN.
- ACORN has a long history of abusing its tax-exempt status by engaging in partisan political activities in support of the Democrat Party (including voter fraud -- but isn't that already illegal? Not under Attorney General Eric Holder. When it comes to ACORN, he can't spell RICO)..... and now we've come full-circle.
- In summation: President Obama and Democrats in Congress are forcibly redistributing wealth; empowering and filling the coffers of the Democrat party (through ACORN) by expanding the CRA's legalized corporate extortion; and doing further harm to the U.S. economy. As Rahm Emanuel and others in the Obama White House are fond of saying, "never let a serious crisis go to waste." Especially the ones you create yourself.
Republicans Use ACORN Controversy to Fight Bank Lending Law - Political News - FOXNews.com
WASHINGTON -- Conservative Republicans are capitalizing on the troubles of community activist group ACORN -- ranging from charges of voter registration fraud to embarrassing videos of its employees -- to revive their long-standing fight against a federal law that grades banks on their investments in poor and minority neighborhoods.
The 1977 Community Reinvestment Act was intended to end redlining, a practice in which banks in effect walled off many inner-city neighborhoods from mortgage loans. But some GOP lawmakers say it has outlived its purpose and is being used inappropriately by ACORN to shake down banks for money. They want to repeal the law, scale it back or at least block a Democratic proposal to expand it.
Critics of the law are linking it to ACORN -- a subject many Democrats wish would go away -- at every opportunity.
"Should we repeal CRA? Absolutely," said Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, a member of the House Financial Services Committee. "Do we have the votes for it today? I seriously doubt that."
Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif., also on the committee, has described ACORN's actions under the law as "legalized extortion," contending that the law gave ACORN the power to stall or prevent bank mergers or expansions by filing CRA complaints with regulators.
"In order to avoid these filings, financial institutions would either lower their lending requirements to meet the needs of ACORN associates or they would simply pay out funds to one of the many ACORN-affiliated organizations," Royce wrote in an article posted on his House Web site.
ACORN said that nearly all the money it receives from banks is used to provide advice to first-time home buyers or homeowners who are at risk of losing their homes to foreclosures, and that the money isn't used for political advocacy.
"The Republicans are attempting to intimidate banks to halt monies that are used to help working families become home buyers or save their homes from foreclosure," spokesman Brain Kettenring said.
Archived ACORN testimony on the Federal Reserve Board Web site shows ACORN has spoken against bank mergers, contending that banks weren't living up to the CRA. In at least one case, however, ACORN supported a merger. The group acknowledged in the 1998 testimony that it was unusual for it do so, but said one of the banks involved, NationsBank, was a leader in community reinvestment, and that its partnership with ACORN Housing Corp. had produced at least $236 million in mortgages.
A decade ago, then-Sen. Phil Gramm of Texas unsuccessfully tried to gut the law, describing nonprofits that use the law as "protection rackets."
Recent troubles at ACORN are giving Republicans ammunition in their renewed campaign against the law. Some employees are accused of voter registration fraud. Its founder was forced out last year amid revelations that he had tried to keep quiet his brother's embezzlement of nearly $1 million. Two conservative filmmakers disguised as a prostitute and a pimp caught ACORN employees on camera giving them tax and immigration advice and advising them to disguise the source of their income to get housing aid.
Three Republican congressmen have asked 14 banks to provide details on their dealings with ACORN. One of them, Bank of America, said it wouldn't engage further with ACORN Housing Corp. until ACORN's issues are resolved.
ACORN, short for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, portrays itself as a successful advocate for tens of thousands of low-income and minority homebuyers. It appointed a former state attorney general to investigate the video scandal.
Republicans describe it as a pro-Democratic group that among other things, is violating the tax-exempt status of some of its affiliates by engaging in partisan political activities.
ACORN Housing Corp. and other ACORN affiliates help people land mortgages and fight predatory lending. They also build and renovate low-income housing around the country. The developments include the ACORN Beverly and Desert Rose subdivisions in Phoenix, the ACORN Glenn subdivision in Houston and apartments in Paterson, N.J. ACORN affiliates rehabilitate housing in New York and elsewhere.
ACORN Housing Corp. and related entities have long done business with major banks. How much, how the money was spent and which ACORN organizations and personnel were involved are difficult to piece together. ACORN does not file a publicly available report describing all its various entities, their financing, their spending or the various roles of its executives.
ACORN's public announcements and a patchwork of documents filed at the federal, state and local levels provide at least a glimpse of the range of its housing activities and relationships with banks.
Just last year, ACORN Housing Corp. announced it was starting a nonprofit brokerage with CitiMortgage, Bank of America and others to help low-income families get mortgages in Florida.
JPMorgan Chase & Co. gave ACORN a five-year, $5 million grant in 2003 for foreclosure prevention and low-income housing initiatives. The company said it hasn't made any donations since last year and won't consider any.
A JPMorgan Chase mortgage officer, Guilermo Loaiza, until recently was on the board at ACORN Housing Corp. He also served as presidents of Arizona ACORN Housing Corp. and ACORN Beverly, a limited liability corporation through which ACORN developed a Phoenix subdivision with help from $4.8 million in credit from JPMorgan Chase.
ACORN Housing Corp. spokeswoman Alyson Chadwick said Loaiza's term on the ACORN Housing board was due to end this month and he decided not to remain for personal reasons. He no longer heads Arizona ACORN Housing or ACORN Beverly, she said.
ACORN Beverly used about $2.5 million of the JPMorgan Chase credit line to build 25 homes and has repaid most of it, Chadwick said. JPMorgan Chase hasn't financed any other loans with Arizona ACORN Housing or ACORN Beverly but has funded other ACORN Housing projects, Chadwick said.
Loaiza didn't act as a loan officer for any Beverly homebuyers, nor did he have anything to do on JPMorgan's end with the project's multimillion-dollar credit line, Chadwick said.
"Bottom line -- no fees to Guilermo," she said. "He always stayed away to avoid any potential for conflict of interest." ACORN Housing has a conflict-of-interest policy and it was in effect at the time of the Arizona project, she added.
An ACORN consultant in the summer of 2008 identified multiple roles played by many officials at ACORN affiliates and the need for a strong conflict-of-interest policy as problems for the group.
"Too many people are wearing too many hats, or perhaps the wrong hat entirely," the consultant wrote in an internal report obtained by The Associated Press.
The report recommended a number of good governance reforms including an anti-conflict-of-interest policy. Those reforms were adopted at the October 2008 board meeting of ACORN.
The history of the relationships between banks and groups like ACORN goes back to President Jimmy Carter's signing of the CRA in 1977.
The neighborhoods targeted for help by the law were typically in areas where groups like ACORN already were working. Banks initially resisted the overtures, but over time saw a viable market for lending in minority communities, with community organizers in a supporting role counseling potential borrowers.
"The relationships between banks and groups like ACORN weren't necessarily marriages made in heaven, but they've consistently worked well," said Gregory Squires, a George Washington University professor who has written about ACORN.

"A top Democratic National Committee official reacted furiously to a statement from Republican Party Chairman Michael Steele mocking -- and describing as 'unfortunate' -- President Obama's Nobel Peace Prize.'The Republican Party has thrown in its lot with the terrorists - the Taliban and Hamas this morning - in criticizing the President for receiving the Nobel Peace prize,' DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse told POLITICO. 'Republicans cheered when America failed to land the Olympics and now they are criticizing the President of the United States for receiving the Nobel Peace prize - an award he did not seek but that is nonetheless an honor in which every American can take great pride - unless of course you are the Republican Party.' "
Well, allow me to retort:
Why would any self-respecting American take pride in Obama being given an award that he did not earn? Remember, his nomination for the prize was submitted after he had been in office for only 12 days. Other than partying, breaking campaign promises and skipping church, he didn't do anything!
The last U.S. President to receive the Nobel Peace Prize was Jimmy Carter, clearly the worst President of the 20th Century (and, arguably, ever).
Way to go, champ.

But the Mainstream Media willfully ignores the story. Why?
Because the President in question is a Democrat, and his name is Barack Obama.
If the scandal involved a right-wing group and a Republican president, can anyone believe for a second that the MSM would not be having a field day? If you do, put down the Kool-Aid.
Even liberal comedian Jon Stewart ("The Daily Show") can no longer ignore it:
In the marketplace of news, people want facts and debate, not propaganda. That's why Fox News is destroying the competition in the ratings. The Mainstream Media has allowed its own political bias to kill even the appearance of objectivity. And the people have spoken.
For more on ACORN's criminal past and links to Barack Obama, read this:

Scratch the proposed replacement "Freedom Tower" (at top).
Here's what we should really do:
Rebuild the Twin Towers, exactly as they were before 9/11, but ONE FLOOR HIGHER. And make one more change:
On the ground floor, install the "9/11 Memorial Shitter". This will contain 19 toilet stalls, each with a picture of one of the 9/11 hijackers on the door. Under each commode will be entombed the recovered DNA remains of one of the 19 hijackers, so that future generations of Americans can shit on them for all eternity.
That's a statement. That's justice. And that's right.

Obama's "Green Jobs" Czar Van Jones resigned today, after even the Mainstream Media could no longer entirely ignore Jones' signature on a 9-11 Truther petition alongside such intellectual heavyweights as Jenine Garofalo and Cynthia McKinney.
When Van Jones (who was empowered to spend billions of your tax dollars with the stroke of his pen) explained that he often signs documents without reading them, well, shucks. You can see where there was some embarrassment for Barack Obama.
Now watch as The Dear Leader pretends that he didn't know Van Jones was a Communist, Revolutionary, Race-Baiter, Cop-Hater, and 9-11 Truther. For those of you keeping score, that leaves 31 more Communist/Revolutionary/Race-Baiting/Cop-Hating/9-11 Truther Czars to go!
It's true that sunlight is the best disinfectant. And disinfectants work.
Obama's house of cards is starting to fall. Enjoy, America...

Cut and paste the Youtube link below to see one example of how Team Obama is trying to crush the Healthscare rebellion at town-hall meetings:
A Supreme Court justice who believes your right to keep and bear arms doesn't apply. Snitch lines so the federal government can track the speech and activities of political opponents. Legions of socialist labor thugs who can be massed anywhere, anytime. Berlin has nothing on the Chicago way.

Obama's "empathy" candidate Sonia Sotomayor was confirmed yesterday for the U.S. Supreme Court. All she had to do was lie and equivocate at the confirmation hearings about everything she has said and done for the last few decades. And that's a small price to pay for the greater good of liberal "social justice," right?
She has said numerous times in the past that a wise Latina woman would make a better decision than a white man. That's racist. She has said that appellate courts are where policy is made. That's judicial activism.
In January 2009, she signed a ruling that the Second Amendment does NOT apply to the States (so I guess you only have a right to keep and bear arms in D.C... oh, snap!). From CNSNews.com's Matt Cover: "In Maloney v. Cuomo, Sotomayor signed an opinion of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit that said the Second Amendment does not protect individuals from having their right to keep and bear arms restricted by state governments."
In this case, a man was arrested in New York State for having a pair of nunchuks. Seriously.
Sotomayor has also said in the past that no judge can be objective. Hey, it's all about empathy. In her wise Latina mind, liberal protected classes are more equal than others. Yet, here is the oath that she will swear to uphold:
- "I, [NAME], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as [TITLE] under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God."
When I swore my oath to support and defend the Constitution, if I had any reservations, I would have been dismissed from service.
Conservatives like me take oaths and the Constitution seriously and literally. Left-wing judges apparently don't have to.
Keep watch, America. And start stockpiling nunchuks now!

Unelected, unconfirmed, unexamined, and unrepentant, he describes himself as a "Communist" and a "Revolutionary."
I'm not making this up.
With $60 billion to spend, not only has he not created a single "green job," he can't even explain what a green job is.

when asked about the House bill that regulates
private health insurance out of existence,
The Dear Leader admitted that
he wasn't familiar with the bill.
But he promised you can keep your private health insurance.
Well, which is it?
Are you ignorant or are you lying?
And will all the people aged 75+
get to stare at your teddy bear poster
as they are denied rationed treatment,
then languish and die under your plan?
(Cue Barber's "Adagio for Strings"

It's funny how Democrat politicians
like President Obama
who force American kids
to keep going to abysmal public schools
send their own kids to private schools.
...But no vouchers for you.
(At least Republicans try to give everyone a choice).
Similarly, with National Socialist Healthcare,
which will ultimately bankrupt all private health insurance,
leaving us no choice...
Congress has their own, separate health plan.
And the President gets a personal physician.
...But no CAT-scans for you.
Whatever happened to leadership by example?
Don't force things on me
that you won't use yourself.

Today, North Korea threatened to wipe the USA off the map. That means they threatened you, and your kids, and your neighbors. North Korea also continues to work on "peaceful" nuclear power... and intercontinental ballistic missiles (as the residents of Hawaii may soon find out). How long will Commander-in-Chief Obama remain silent this time? Stay tuned... and get comfortable. Remember when Republicans warned that you can't "vote present" when faced with a crisis as President? Enjoy, America!

Barack Obama's Injustice Department dropped charges of voter intimidation against three New Black Panthers who harassed voters at a polling place in Philadelphia during the 2008 election.
Note the thug holding the night-stick.
If this isn't voter intimidation, then nothing is.
If this isn't racism, then nothing is (one of the men was quoted as saying "You're about to be ruled by the black man, cracker.")
If dropping obviously provable charges of voter intimidation isn't a violation by Attorney General Eric Holder of his sworn oath to enforce the law, then nothing is.
If Barack Obama's silence on the issue isn't a tacit endorsement of reverse racism, then nothing is.
Didn't Martin Luther King, Jr. once say something about judging people by the content of their character, and not by the color of their skin? If so, then Obama and Holder must be judged as hypocrites and moral cowards.
But, hey, you elected him..... enjoy, America!

The Associated Press reported today:
"Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is asserting that the description she initially gave of the border swine-flu monitoring effort no longer applies. Appearing Wednesday before a Senate panel, Napolitano said that "passive surveillance" is "not an accurate picture of what is going on" at U.S. entry points. She had used that term Tuesday morning to describe the nature of the monitoring for illness. On Wednesday, Napolitano said that U.S. officials are "actively" questioning visitors at the border, asking questions about "whether they are ill, their travel history and the like." She also discounted turning to thermal meters to gauge whether people are carrying a fever, and Napolitano also said she does not believe the facts of the current situation would merit closing the borders."
Psssssst... hey, Janet: while you're at it, why don't you have the Border Patrol ask them if they are smuggling drugs or planning to overstay their visas? That way we could solve all these problems through active dialogue! Why didn't President Bush think of that?! Well spank my ass and call me Arlen, I'm switching to Democrat! Yeehaw!!!

Manhattan was plunged into chaos today as Air Force One, escorted by military jets, conducted an unannounced photo op low over the Statue of Liberty (watch the pandemonium here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jn0tMMYEkQU&feature=player_embedded )
Louis Caldera, Director of the White House Military Office, seems to be the fall guy for the moment.
Let's conduct a thought experiment: imagine if this had happened under President George W. Bush. How would the drive-by media handle the fly-by? Answer: the howler monkeys at MSNBC would be screeching and throwing journalistic feces for days.
But for D'ohbama? Aw, shucks. Let's turn to more photos of Abu Ghraib!

Even Hsu’s data should have given him a clue. With 35,000 weapons confiscated, a 90% figure should mean the US identified 31,500 weapons as originating in the US. However, during that time, only 5,114 of those weapons got traced back to the US, or about 17%, give or take. The rest of the weapons originate in Russia, China, Central and South America — and from discharged veterans and deserter from the Mexican Army, who keep their weapons and then sell them on the black market.
This is the kind of information that might be handy to WaPo readers: accurate and factual. Perhaps both governments trot out that nonsense, but shouldn’t newspapers exist to test government claims? However, when one knows what the real numbers are, one can’t write about an “iron river of guns.” Maybe Hsu should stick to poetry."
- On 07 April 2009, Janet Napolitano's Dept. of Homeland Security issued a threat assessment titled "Rightwing Extremism: Current
Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment." Using one data point (Timothy McVeigh, 1995) she connects the...er, dot and warns all the nation's law enforcement agencies to monitor anyone who:
- opposes any form of abortion
- opposes "immigration" (the report lumps together "immigration" and "illegal immigration")
- opposes gun control
- is a "disgruntled military veteran"
- perceives "government infringement on civil liberties"
- and the list goes on...
No, this is not a joke. Remember all the left-wing nutroots shrieking and screaming about the coming of the "Bush-Hitler"? I guess when fascism actually arrives, it's okay... so long as it's a Democrat. At least Obama didn't put incompetent ideologues in charge of any other government agencies... oh, snap!
