‘Climate Change’: Pres. Flat-Wrong Scolds the ‘Flat-Earth Society’

Gearing up to further damage the U.S. economy, the president presented his energy policy speech from Georgetown University, home of famous alumnus Sandra “Free Contraceptives” Fluke and Barack’s infamous crucifix-covering event.

Sporting his usual smug, sarcastic attitude, foolish flathead Barack Obama chose to mock climate-change skeptics by calling them the “flat-Earth society.”

Emotionally overheated and sounding like he huffed jet fuel fumes on his trip back from Ireland and Germany, the President vilified climate-change skeptics and admitted that he lacks “patience for anyone who denies that this problem is real.”

Although he would never admit it, impatient is pretty much how Obama behaves towards anyone who disagrees with him or with any progressive policy initiative he seeks to impose on America.

During his speech the president, who dragged his feet when responding to Benghazi, costing four Americans their lives, implied that the Earth was warming at such a rapid rate that “We don’t have time for a meeting of the flat-Earth society.”

Obama then said that “Sticking your head in the sand might make you feel safer, but it’s not going to protect you from the coming storm.”

Speaking of feeling safer and needing protection from coming storms, I wonder if the president was referring to his flat-wrong liberal friends who spend most of the time with their flatheads up their … never mind.

After the reference to sticking your head up — or into — dark places and warning of impending weather-related uproars, things got confusing when Obama said that the “overwhelming judgment of science, of chemistry, of physics, and millions of measurements” put “to rest” questions of pollution affecting the environment.

While none of what President Flat-wrong said about the Earth’s rising temperature was followed up with verifiable data, what was truly amazing is that the pro-choice champion of late-term and even post-term hands-off style abortion shamelessly cited science to support his climate-change claims.

Isn’t this the guy who said answering questions about when life begins was way “above [his] pay grade”? And doesn’t he stick his flathead in wherever when it comes to undeniable proof that life begins at conception? Yet whenever he’s pushing bogus science, he instantly goes technical on us.

Then again, isn’t that sort of what the president does with the Constitution, especially as it relates to the First, Second and Fourth Amendments? One minute it’s a “fundamentally flawed” document and then, when anyone dares to threaten the “right” to kill the unborn, Obama becomes the upholder of America’s founding document.

Meanwhile, back at Georgetown, Jabber Jaws single-handedly added to the rising temperature of the planet in real time by doing what he does best, spewing megatons of hot air and proclaiming that “[t]he planet is warming [and] human activity is contributing to it.”

Then, a man who heartily approves of America’s grand total of 60 million abortions and whose failed policies have cost millions of jobs, said “We know that the costs of these [weather] events can be measured in lost lives and lost livelihoods.”

In the doom and gloom portion of the speech, Barack Obama rattled off a laundry list of 12 warm years, inclement weather, Hurricane Sandy, dead crops in the mid-West, and subsequent high food prices. Doing everything short of dragging out the Sandy Hook families, Obama said, “In a world that’s warmer than it used to be, all weather events are affected by the warming planet.”

And because the bottom line is that he’s never met a regulation he didn’t like, President Flat-wrong announced a schedule for setting new environmental regulations that will limit how much carbon pollution can be emitted from both new and existing power plants.

In other words, Obama is anxious to eliminate more jobs, burden industry further, soak taxpayers, and hamstring an already struggling economy.

Without mentioning best flat-wrong friend Chris Christie, Barack chided naysayers again when he stressed the urgent response of “those who are feeling the effects of climate change.” According to Obama, those who are feeling it “don’t have time to deny it [because] they’re busy dealing with it.”

Dealing with it? Hopefully, the president of the “Flat-Wrong Society” wasn’t counting himself in the “dealing with it” group because if four years of hemming and hawing have taught Americans anything it’s that Barack Obama pretty much makes a mess of everything!

For example, the president apparently tries to minimize the effects of climate change by burning up enormous amounts of fuel flying Air Force One on vacations, golf trips, and fundraisers.

Barack Obama also deals with the carbon emission problem by hauling security personnel, limos, bulletproof glass panels for speeches, and the wife and kids on endless globetrotting jaunts. Not to mention the carbon footprint President Flat-wrong imposes on the planet every time he transports the gargantuan Beast, his eight-ton armored tank-car. Not to mention Bo the family dog – who travels on a separate flight accompanied by a back-up Teleprompter and a handler, of course.

Outsmarting a Chicago Smarty at His Own Game

It’s a week since the 2012 election, and personally, I’m totally disoriented.  I mistook Friday for Wednesday; I live on an island destroyed by hurricane Sandy; and my overall mood borders on despondent.  For me, anyway, it’s depressing that left-wing academes, women in vagina suits, illegal aliens, liberal progressives, 85% of all Muslims living in America, and Hugo Chávez, Vladimir Putin, Fidel Castro, and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are all equally ecstatic about the re-election of Barack Obama.

While disconcerting to most, those types of accolades have not been wasted on the president.  He has mistaken a non-mandate for a mandate and is wasting zero time frenetically fast-tracking policies guaranteed to further limit the constitutional freedoms of every American, including those who were twirling around like Deadheads after the November 6 election was called.

And even though the Republicans retained control of the House, in the bleakness and disappointment that remains, there seems to be little hope left for those who thought the election would turn out differently.

The truth is that while the last vestiges of freedom hinge directly on state representatives who attest to conservative principles, hearing Barry’s favorite golf partner John Boehner saying that ObamaCare is now “the law of the land” has made many, including myself, want to throw ourselves off that “fiscal cliff” that’s currently the topic of alarmed discussion.

On the day following the election, Speaker Boehner politely acquiesced to the effect that the people’s choice indicates that indeed this is Barack Obama’s “moment.”  However, Boehner did maintain that while he’s committed to assisting the president in reining in entitlement programs and is anxious to support serious spending cuts, Congress is not open to punishing small business owners — i.e., “the rich” — with tax increases.

Sorry, but John Boehner feigning bravado coupled with Barack Obama’s self-assured swaggering has only added to the pervading depression that has gripped half the country.  What America is currently being subjected to by Barack Obama is the same “I won” attitude he had in 2009 when he proposed and implemented his failed $787-billion stimulus package.

Nonetheless, John Boehner has encouraged the president to take the lead.  Yet for the sake of the future of America, at this juncture, John is the one who should be doing the leading.

Instead of immediately extending an olive branch, what the speaker of the House should recognize is that he’s the one who holds the power when it comes to everything the cocksure Obama believes he now controls.  If Mr. Boehner spent more time paying attention and less time at the tanning salon, he might realize that the key to hamstringing Barack Obama’s goals is to outsmart a Chicago smarty at his own game.

How?  Well, before election week ended, the retired four-star general/civilian CIA director General David Petraeus admitted to an extramarital affair and promptly stepped down.  Petraeus’s shocking resignation took place one week prior to being compelled to testify before Congress about the seven-hour terrorist attack on the Libyan consulate in Benghazi that took the lives of four Americans on the anniversary of September 11.

As a group, most Obama voters have proven to be generally oblivious to the more serious issues facing America’s future.  Perhaps David Petraeus’s suspiciously timed resignation will be the thing that finally captures the attention of those who, thus far, have been more concerned with Big Bird and birth control than an American ambassador being raped, tortured, and killed.

Therefore, instead of allowing the haughty Barack Obama to continue calling the shots, House Republicans could use General Petraeus’s resignation as a catalyst to wrest control from the president and place it back into the hands of the American people.

To do so, it would be necessary for congressional Republicans to muster up the temerity to use the Benghazi cover-up as clout; then, once they’re hit in the paycheck, even those who supported the foolishly reelected Two-Term Terminator will be demanding answers about what went down in Libya.

In lieu of Petraeus’s testimony, the first step would be for Republicans to promptly petition the White House to hand over all correspondence relating to the Benghazi event.  John Boehner could then demand pertinent evidence including e-mails and videos from the Situation Room, from which place the terrorist attack was taped as it unfolded in real time.  If Barack Obama and his minions choose to continue to stonewall, the speaker will be justified in countering the president’s refusal by publicly refusing to comply with budgetary negotiations, including discussions about tax cuts, rates, and revenue.

If Mr. Boehner manages to effectively utilize the incident in Benghazi for political leverage and the nation subsequently careens forward over the “fiscal cliff,” the president can then be held accountable.  Moreover, Boehner will at least have a fighting chance to make the argument that the nation’s economic woes are a result of the White House refusing to come clean.

In other words, if, on behalf of the American people, Republicans in Congress suck it up and grasp the optimal set of circumstances currently before them, then, caught between a “fiscal cliff” and Benghazi, Barack Obama will be the one doing the surrendering, not the other way around.
