Jim Cramer reports on a hidden provision of the health care bill that controls your purchases of gold. What does gold have to do with healthcare? Nothing. But every bill this congress passes is an opportunity to extend government control over your life. If you aren’t outraged yet about this government’s intrusion into your life you haven’t been paying attention.
It’s all about demographics. “Demos” are used every day to sell detergent, cars, hamburgers, clothing, and basically everything Americans consume. If you’ve bought anything online lately you’ve likely been asked to participate in a survey supposedly rating their service, “to make sure we perform to your satisfaction.” But more times than not there are questions regarding your lifestyle, age, sex, etc. This data is collected by the merchant to help them understand who their market really is and that is of value to their marketing department as they strategize how to win market share.
The Democrats have also done their own research and figured out who their “clients” are, where they live, and the issues that are their hot buttons. For them, it is simple, really. The Democratic constituents live in the big cities. Click on the 2008 presidential election map from the Washington Post and you’ll see it was the big cities that put Obama on the map.
If you added up the land mass of every blue and red county you’d see something really striking—the Republicans won 80 percent of this country, when measured by acreage. John McCain got a majority of votes in 2,417,000 square miles of the United States. Barack Obama, by comparison, won in just 580,000 square miles. Read more…
I know what you’re thinking, “As usual Munchausen, you’ve gone too far! The fact that Earth Day and Vladimir Lenin’s birthday are on the same day is only a coincidence. The two have no relationship one to another.”
Would you be just as willing to say that there is no connection between Communism and the environmental movement?
Even though the United States leads the world in environmental protection, the world clamors for draconian penalties on the US while giving free passes to China, India, and polluting third world countries. Of course that’s only fair you say, the US can afford to give its wealth to countries that really need it. “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.” Such a warm and cuddly statement from Karl Marx.
That brings to mind some of Lenin’s most popular quotes:
A lie told often enough becomes truth.
One man with a gun can control 100 without one.
The goal of socialism is communism.
Give us the child for 8 years and it will be a Bolshevik forever.
It is true that liberty is precious – so precious that it must be rationed. Vladimir Lenin
I’m guessing you didn’t see the coverage below of the global warming conference in Copenhagen. Watch the video and then you can tell me that there is no connection between Communism and the environmental movement.
HIMALAYAS: One more “climate scientist” has come forward and admitted faking a study in order to provide the IPCC with scare tactics used to alarm the general public. Who hasn’t heard of the Himalayas? What a great high profile target, one valuable for its shock value. Turns out it was all a sham.
First the scare tactics, from the IPCC’s 2007 report:
Glaciers in the Himalaya are receding faster than in any other part of the world (see Table 10.9) and, if the present rate continues, the likelihood of them disappearing by the year 2035 and perhaps sooner is very high if the Earth keeps warming at the current rate. Its total area will likely shrink from the present 500,000 to 100,000 km2 by the year 2035 (WWF, 2005). Read more…
We’re guessing you haven’t seen coverage of this in the MSM reports on the global warming conference in Copenhagen. This kind of demonstration is a little to overt for US audiences, so here in the US Socialists tone it down a bit by calling themselves Progressives, good for PR. So as to not attract too much attention they hide in little groups, like the Congressional Progressive Caucus (the largest caucus within the Democratic Congress. Won’t they be happy when they can come out in full colors like their brethren in Copenhagen… Oh Europe… how we long for the days when we are more like you! This video kind of warms your heart, doesn’t it? Finally climate change we can believe in.
COPENHAGEN: The climate summit is distributing The Little REDD Book, a guidebook outlining the UN’s role in redistribution of wealth. It has been published by the Global Canopy Program, “an alliance of 37 scientific institutions in 19 countries, which lead the world in forest canopy research, education and conservation.” This UN guide to wealth redistribution lays out the real purpose of the environmentalist movement:
If a post-Kyoto climate agreement fails to act on avoiding tropical deforestation, the achievement of overall climate change goals will become virtually impossible. The lives and livelihoods of millions of people will be put at risk, and the eventual economic cost of combating climate change will be far higher than it needs to be.
For these reasons, the next agreement must create meaningful incentives to remunerate forest nations for the valuable climate services they provide to the world. The Little REDD Book, multiple languages here, NIP archive here.
So we get it. Big Bad USA is supposed to send money to small jungle countries to pay them to not develop land that they wouldn’t develop anyway because they don’t have the energy, brains, property rights and freedom to do so. This is silly. We have more forests in the US than most of these smaller countries combined. And we can and do plant more trees every year. So we have to send them money? The US has done more than any other country in reducing emissions. They should send us money. Read more…
COPENHAGEN: Here is one of the “scientific studies” found tucked away in the Climategate files. (You can download the files and see for yourself.) Does this look like the “researchers” at Hadley CRU are unbiased? A video was shown on Glenn Beck today which showed an environmentalist at Copenhagen using this slide as an example of name-calling, which in her mind was an example of public hysteria. Too bad this example was from their side.
On his show Glenn said he wished he had the slide being shown by the environmentalist. We found it in the Climategate files. Here you go, Glenn.
