Is Obama Arming Iran for a Secret Reason?

obama-iran1 Originally posted at American Thinker

When Barack Obama was elected in 2008 the general consensus was that the new president was brilliant — with nothing but hearsay to back up the claim. The Obama myth was that America’s 44th president was the “smartest man in the room,” a brainiac too “intelligent for Republicans to understand.”

Then, as weeks turned into months and months into almost two terms, Obama’s questionable decisions, obvious lack of economic prowess, faux healthcare expertise, and total lack of foreign policy and national security know-how called into question whether the Obama-is-a-genius assertion might have been a bit hasty.

Nothing the president has done or continues to do seems to make much sense. If anything, the only consistent success Barack Obama has had is managing to make worse everything he’s attempted to fix.

But then again, according to his apologists, for people of average brainpower the president’s blueprint for remedying unemployment, calming turmoil in the Middle East, and soothing racial unrest may just be too conceptually complex for mere mortals to grasp.

For instance, this Earth Day, in an effort to instruct Americans on the deteriorating condition of the environment, Obama’s superior intellect convinced him it was wise to burn 9,000 gallons of jet fuel flying aboard Air Force One to the 1.5 million-acre Everglades National Park in Florida to talk about climate change.

The president spoke directly to a crowd that included community leaders, Park Service employees, and tree-hugging sycophants, all of whom had gathered to hear what world citizen Barack Obama had to say about the future of the planet.

Thankfully, with swampland as his backdrop, the president did successfully avoid being eaten alive by high-jumping alligators looking for high-powered delicacies for lunch.

Meanwhile, sounding as if he were referring to his magical self and not the Everglades, Obama said, “You can see what makes this unique landscape so magical.”

“Climate change is threatening this treasure and the communities that depend on it,” said the treasured one, “and if we don’t act, there may not be an Everglades as we know it.”

The “as we know it” warning was a bit odd coming from a guy who is single-handedly destabilizing the world’s precarious nuclear balance. Obama, who is all but placing a nuclear bomb into the hands of a terrorist state, probably should be less concerned about the Everglades and more concerned about the disappearance of Israel “as we know it.”

But he’s not.

Instead he’s focusing on the pressing issue of climate change and global warming. And while the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran is terrifying to some, based on his previously established level of intellectual acumen, there may actually be a method to what appears to be another example of Obama’s madness.

Surely the president is well aware that U.S. government computer models predict that even a small nuclear war anywhere on the planet could trigger “unprecedented” global cooling. With global warming the culprit, cooling, however it’s accomplished, would provide a quick fix for the guy in need of a boost in the polls.

Sure, a small-scale nuclear war would cause global cooling, further reduction of the ozone layer, and harmful ultraviolet radiation. That, in turn, would usher in death, disease, and drought due to things like lack of rainfall.

But ultimately mass starvation and plague could deliver positive results, particularly for the growing problem of overpopulation. Then, in due time, as millions die off, the president’s credibility would be greatly improved among organizations concerned with controlling world population, like the U.N., and his legacy as a transformative leader would be secured.

If Iran lobbed a nuke at Israel, smoky, dusty, ashy high-carbon clouds would block the warmth of the sun. That, coupled with radioactive fallout, would usher in a “nuclear winter” capable of instantly stopping the destructive heating trend Obama so passionately believes is wreaking havoc in places like the Florida Everglades.

But most importantly, thanks to superb forethought and unprecedented planning, global warming would cease, and global cooling would commence.

Either way, for many — including the entire nation of Israel — the perplexing question for a long time has been: why is a U.S. president helping the Iranians acquire an atomic bomb? The thought of it didn’t seem to make much sense.

But now, the idea of a small-scale nuclear war being environmentally friendly could actually be a stroke of genius.

On Earth Day, at the edge of the swamplands, the motivation behind the former president of the Harvard Law Review negotiating with the Ayatollah may be falling into place. Could it be that Barack Obama’s long-term goal is to help Iran acquire the nukes necessary to finally put an end to global warming?

If it is, at least for him, it could be a win/win!

By shifting America’s attention from Iran acquiring a nuclear bomb to helping Americans accept the much loftier goal of a small nuclear blast to remedy global warming, Barack Obama can cure the climate crisis and officially reclaim his reputation as America’s brainiest president.

Malia’s Asthma and the Asphyxiation of America

imagesOriginally posted at American Thinker

Having Obama, the man who took credit for inventing Obamacare at the White House science fair, blame his daughter Malia’s asthma on climate change while knowing full well he was smoking at the time is like volatile actor Alec Baldwin blaming his children’s nanny for any struggles they may have handling anger management issues as adults.

Besides, with all of the president’s supposed medical expertise and notwithstanding being married to America’s foremost health and nutrition expert, one would think that a man with such a stunning level of brilliance would at least be aware of the American Lung Association’s comments concerning secondhand smoke:

  • Children are especially sensitive to the dangers of secondhand smoke!
  • Children who breathe secondhand smoke are more likely to develop asthma.
  • Children who have asthma and who breathe secondhand smoke have more asthma attacks.

But as usual, truth and logic be damned!  Barack Obama will blame anyone other than himself for whatever negative effects his poor choices and selfish behavior impose on others.

For instance, Obama has condemned G.W. Bush for everything from unemployment to the national debt to the economy to Afghanistan and most recently to the growth of ISIS.  And G.W. is not alone.  Obama faults Congress for his lack of fiscal discipline, the oil industry for high oil prices, Wall Street fat cats for anything he can think of to blame on them, and Fox News and racism for his poor poll numbers.

It’s no secret that six years ago, when Barack Obama emerged from a cloud of choom smoke and ascended from the mean streets of Chicago to the lofty summit of power at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Marlboro Red was his nicotine fix of choice.  At the time, Malia was ten years old and had racked up a decade, give or take, of inhaling her father’s secondhand smoke.

What we also know is that even though he’s still chewing Nicorette gum (and therefore very likely still smoking), Obama has no shame when it comes to exploiting his daughters to promote progressive policy or make political points.

For example, in 2010, Obama headed to the Gulf of Mexico to investigate the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, eat snow cones, indulge in baskets of fried shrimp, and roll tar balls around on the beach.  The president said it was incumbent upon him to rush down there because 11-year-old Malia was fretting over the disaster.

According to the president, this is what happened: “You know, when I woke up this morning and I’m shaving, and Malia knocks on my bathroom door and she peeks in her head and she says, ‘did you plug the hole yet, Daddy?'”

Now, five years later, to justify taking what he calls “concrete steps” toward the formation of initiatives purportedly directed at dealing with the impact of climate change on public health, including his hosting an upcoming White House Climate Change and Health Summit, Obama has decided that now is the perfect time to dredge up an anecdote about Malia’s asthma.

Hey, wait!  Maybe avoiding a potential asthma attack was the reason the first daughters recently chose not to inhale the fumes of the 35,000 gallons of fuel burned while flying with Mom to Japan.  And maybe that’s why Malia was a no-show at the 137th annual White House Easter Egg Roll.  It’s never a good time for asthma sufferers with potential latent food allergies to spend time rolling eggs around on freshly mown grass.

Speaking of grass, earlier in the week at a roundtable discussion at Howard University, while discussing the environment and public health, Obama brought up his time at Occidental College in Los Angeles.

Forgetting to mention that besides smoking cigarettes, he frequently smoked “reefer” and indulged in druggie-fests while in LA, Obama blamed smog for his inability to suck air.  The president said:

I remember when I first went to college in Los Angeles in 1979, the air was so bad that you couldn’t go running outside. You’d have air quality alerts, and people who had respiratory problems or were vulnerable had to stay inside

In other words, to avoid smog-induced breathlessness, Obama, who’s usually full of hot air, stayed inside and smoked pot, which recent studies claim is far worse for lung health than cigarette smoke.

Then, while discussing climate change in a one-on-one interview with ABC News’s chief health and medical editor, Dr. Richard Besser, the president said this: “What I can relate to is the fear a parent has, when your 4-year-old daughter comes up to you and says, ‘Daddy, I’m having trouble breathing.’ The fright you feel is terrible.”

Isn’t Obama, now promoting himself as the “clean air for children’s health” advocate, also the guy who voted “no” four times on the Illinois Born Alive Infant Protection Act, the opponents of which, in support of a woman’s right to choose, believe that babies born alive in botched abortions should be denied oxygen?

Either way, rather than accept responsibility for his daughter’s alleged asthma (if she even has asthma), and admit that cigarette smoking may be the culprit behind a four-year-old gasping for breath, once again Obama passed the blame from himself to an environmental scapegoat.

As for Dr. Besser, he must have forgotten to ask whether, at the time of Malia’s bronchial distress, the president was in the habit of blowing smoke rings around his daughters.

Not only that, but if we’re discussing “having trouble breathing,” maybe Dr. Besser should have pointed out to the president that America is terribly frightened, too, because for six years straight he’s been choking the nation to death with policies that make being asphyxiated by Los Angeles pollution seem like a breath of fresh air.

Science Boxes in Barbara Boxer

Originally posted at American Thinker

Regardless of what one thinks about climate change and whether the theory is plausible or not, Barbara Boxer, with her 100% pro-choice voting record, talking about anything ‘endangering humankind’ is the height of self-deluded deception. During a press conference on Capitol Hill, Barbara said the following: “The message I have for climate deniers is this: you are endangering humankind. It is time for climate deniers to face reality, because the body of evidence is overwhelming and the world’s leading scientists agree.”

Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chairwoman Barbara Boxer (D-CA), referring to a scientific ‘body of evidence’ to attest to the reality of climate change, is about as authentic a stance as atheist/evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins quoting Scripture to support his belief in the theory of evolution.

In 1993, 12 years after a United States Senate Judiciary Subcommittee invited experts to testify on the question of when life begins, science buff Barbara Boxer assumed office.  According to a prominent physician who attended the hearing at that time, there was not “even a single expert witness who would specifically testify that life begins at any point other than conception or implantation.”

Testimony supporting life included statements from Dr. Jerome LeJeune, professor of genetics at the University of Descartes in Paris,  “discoverer of the chromosome pattern of Down syndrome,” who testified to the Judiciary Subcommittee that “after fertilization has taken place a new human being has come into being…each individual has a very neat beginning, at conception.”

The official Senate report on the testimony surrounding Senate Bill 158, the ‘Human Life Bill,’ summarized the issue this way: “Physicians, biologists, and other scientists agree that conception marks the beginning of the life of a human being – a being that is alive and is a member of the human species. There is overwhelming agreement on this point in countless medical, biological, and scientific writings.”

Maybe some of those same scientists would agree to sit down with Ms. Boxer and pick apart her statement as it relates to planetary global warming, only this time comparing it to aborting human beings residing within the womb.

Barbara Boxer chided those who reject the claims of global warming alarmists, saying that they “cling to a tiny minority view…wishing that climate change will go away.” Boxer argues that it’s “not a policy — it is a fantasy.” Yet, couldn’t that same logic be applied to the “fantasy” that Barbara Boxer and the pro-choice community cling to which, contrary to science, maintains that unborn children are not human beings?

Defender of both the environment and the destruction of embryos, Ms. Boxer continued in defense of climate change by telling skeptics that “Problems do not go away by pretending they do not exist. And the longer that the vocal minority insists on keeping their heads in the sand, the more it endangers billions of people around the globe and threatens to dramatically and negatively reshape the world as we know it.”

If Barbara Boxer is so concerned about the authority of science, maybe she should heed the words of the late Ashley Montague, geneticist and professor at Harvard and Rutgers, who believed that “The basic fact is simple: life begins not at birth, but conception.” Perhaps Dr. Montague could have explained to the woman fretting about “endangering mankind” that babies “do not go away” either, especially “by pretending they do not exist.”

Senator Boxer criticizes climate science cynics, alleging they are standing in the way of significant progress toward lowering greenhouse gas emissions both domestically and internationally. That means global defender Barbara Boxer should also understand that if Americans silently stand by while millions continue to exercise the right to choose, and the longer the majority of Americans insist on “keeping their heads in the sand,” the more endangered billions of unborn children around the globe will be.

Whether Boxer agrees with science or not, more than greenhouse gas, abortion has “dramatically and negatively [reshaped] the world as we know it,” both physically and morally. However, it is probable that Barbara Boxer opposes the view that blames abortion on demand on human irresponsibility and immorality, but does agree with scientists who believe that climate change results primarily from human activity.

Concerned about saving the planet, and despite scientific evidence which maintains that life begins at conception, Boxer has voted “No” on banning partial-birth abortions; “No” on restricting UN funding for population control policies; “No” on notifying parents of minors who get out-of-state abortions; “No” on criminal penalty for harming an unborn fetus during other crimes; and “No” on virtually every piece of legislation that protects human life in the womb.

Professing concern for scientific evidence, Barbara Boxer also “dismissed a series of hacked emails that…[some claim]…show climate scientists hiding data [and] raise questions about global warming.” Boxer maintains that the emails “were thoroughly studied, reviewed, investigated, and … found not to undermine the consensus on climate change in any way.”

Unable to attend the international climate change talks in South Africa, Boxer addressed the group gathered in Durban by way of a video message. The three-term senator urged negotiators to make “significant progress” on an agreement to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions, and did so as strongly as she opposed Republican opponent Carly Fiorina at the 2010 California Senate debate. In the first debate, Boxer argued that “If [Fiorina’s] views prevailed, women and doctors would be criminals, they would go to jail. Women would die, like they did before Roe v. Wade.”

Thus far, dilation-and-curettage/cap-and-trade advocate Barbara has not yet shared whether or not her concern for technical exactness as it pertains to ‘endangering humankind’ extends to being as 100% sure that a fetus is not a human as she is 100% in support of abortion.

If Barbara Boxer is calling upon science as the basis to promote legislation that protects the environment, shouldn’t that same devotion to scientific proof extend to all policy, even if it debunks liberal myths such as: a fetus is not a human being? If preventing the destruction of humankind is truly her goal, it’s incumbent upon the esteemed senator from California to place science before ideology and renounce her support for abortion and her radical belief that a living breathing entity is not a full-fledged human being, deserving of human rights, until after it is born.

Micheline Mathews-Roth MD of Harvard University Medical School once said “It is scientifically correct to say that an individual human life begins at conception…our laws, one function of which is to help preserve the lives of our people, should be based on accurate scientific data.”

If scientific data is supposedly the key to Ms. Boxer’s support for policy that addresses greenhouse gases, then the words of Dr. Matthews-Roth should compel her, at least on the issue of life, to finally agree with Rick Santorum.

Newark mayor has issues with tissues – American Thinker – July 23, 2010

Original posted at American Thinker Blog

For a second there it appeared as if, when no one was looking, Sheryl Crow was secretly elected mayor of Newark, New Jersey. Sheryl is a singer/songwriter as well as a radical environmental activist.  In fact, Sheryl is so committed to the cause she suggested “limiting toilet paper use as one solution to global warming.”

Sheryl injected her opinion into the most private aspect of life and felt it her duty to preach about how many environmentally friendly squares of toilet paper Americans should use per sitting.

Now, I don’t want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required.

Why is using or not using toilet paper a current topic of conversation?  Well, if Mayor Cory Booker had listened to Crow back in 2007, when the performer was touring America in her biodiesel-powered bus, Newark’s budget may have been rescued and there would be no reason to inconvenience government workers by removing the Scott® tissue from the lavatory dispenser in 2010.

Now, three years after Sheryl Crow shared her insights and concerns about toilet paper usage, “things are getting so bad in Newark that the mayor has ordered the government stop buying toilet paper.”

Cory Booker isn’t limiting the sheet-per-sitting as suggested by savvy Sheryl. Booker decided to save money by ceasing to supply toilet paper to government workers, period.  Thankfully, for the rest of the city and in light of the toilet paper issue, the mayor is also “reducing most city workers to a 4-day work week.”

Mayor Booker has also decided to close city pools, another considerate move especially if those banned from using toilet paper frequent summer-fun recreation areas.

“Police officers, firefighters and sanitation workers would not be affected by the furlough plan” and will be provided gas, but it’s unclear whether first responders and garbage men will have the luxury of on-the-job Charmin®.

Newark’s budget “shortfall is $70 million and Booker plans to meet the revenue with budget cuts instead of property tax increases.”  Booker said, “Taxes cannot be the answer.” According to the mayor, the budget resolution lies in the prohibition of work place toilet paper.

Booker also said, “Call me Mr. Scrooge, if you want, but they’ll [sic] be no Christmas decorations around the city.” Banning Christmas seems mean.  However, doing away with holiday cheer in Newark may ultimately work out to Mayor Cory Booker’s benefit.

If Mayor Booker saves money on Christmas lights, he can spread good tidings with a one-time-only government worker Christmas gift of one roll of toilet paper per worker. If Mayor Cory Booker splurges and gifts each Newark employee with one roll of 1,000 sheet toilet paper, according to Sheryl Crow’s calculations Booker won’t have to worry about Christmas for three more years.

Soft in the Middle, Al

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-rN7R6r0T48&feature=related[/youtube]

Big Al, soft in the middle now has a hard life.   Always looking for a photo opportunity Al is now in need of a shot of redemption.

Al Gore is destined for the cartoon graveyard, digging bones like a dog in the moonlight.

Bone digger, bone digger.

Mr. Beerbelly should know America doesn’t find him amusing anymore.

Has Al Gore found a brand new pal?  And if he has, does Laurie call him Al?

Al must have a short little attention span.  Or could it be that while out on an environmental road show nights were so long and lonely?   Where were Tipper and Larry David?

Guess Lauri David was Al’s companion on those nights.   Now Mr. Global Warming is being warmed by an environmental freak show, Laurie David. All America now ask, “Who’ll be my role-model?”  And the answer is, Sure-ain’t-Al.

Al was supposed to be talking about melting icebergs when, “He ducked back down the alley with some roly-poly little bat-faced girl.”  Remember,  “There were hints and allegations.”

Al may need a bodyguard, because he’s got a brand new pal…He may call her Laurie and Laurie when she calls him, calls him Al, calls him Al!

Al is a foreign man surrounded by the sound of nelting icebergs.  The sound  of prattle and of “Inconvenient Lies.”

Al looks around…he sees a boiling planet, angels in the architecture – spinning in infinity.

He looks at his bloated image in a glass pane window. Al tries to Curb His Enthusiasm, but can only say “Amen! and Hallelujah!”

If you’ll be my bodyguard
I can be your long lost pal
I can call you Laurie
And Laurie when you call me
You can call me Al
Call me Al
