Boxer, Holdren Defend Motley CRU
Investors.com ^ | December 3, 2009 | INVESTORS BUSINESS DAILY Staff

Posted on 12/03/2009 5:31:58 PM PST by Kaslin

Warming Scandal: Despite the incriminating e-mails, administration science adviser John Holdren still thinks man causes global warming. And Sen. Barbara Boxer thinks it's the whistle-blowers who should be arrested.

Time was when Barbara Boxer thought it was just fine for the New York Times and Washington Post to spill national military secrets and war plans on their front pages. The people had a right to know where and how they were being led.

But we are not dealing here with the Pentagon Papers, the location of terrorist prisons or the surveillance of al-Qaida and its operatives. Boxer, top Democrat on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, thinks those who unearthed the e-mails from Britain's Climate Research Unit should be prosecuted as common hackers, not rewarded as whistle-blowers.

"This is a crime. You call it 'Climate-gate.' I call it 'e-mail-theft-gate,'" Boxer said at a committee hearing Wednesday, noting that if she were to hold a hearing on the matter as the ranking Republican has requested, it would include a criminal probe of those who revealed that global warming emperors have no clothes and the world is actually cooling as the sun grows quiet.

"Part of our looking at this will be looking at criminal activity, which could have been well coordinated," Boxer said.

NPR Marketplace had a somewhat lighthearted report on “Hopenhagen” tonight, as if nothing had changed, and as if global warming was exactly as the Obama administration has marketed it.

"Part of our looking at this will be looking at criminal activity, which could have been well coordinated," Boxer said.

Clearly, she has low IQ and does not understand the requirements of her job. The US does not have jurisdiction over Britiain. That part is for Britain to investigate if they are interested. The message in the emails are real and involve people in the US who took Federal grants as well as influenced American policies.

Even the dullest Democrat hack must be rolling their eyes at the madame senator, off trying to stuff the cat back in the bag by threatening some criminal show trial.

No brain surgeon, she.

Uh, Mann is a resident of the United States. He published papers with every one of these people. You think if someone living here in the United States were engaged in criminal activity with someone overseas the United States would have have no jurisdiction over U.S. residents involved in an international scam?

I realize that Babs Boxer is a drooling MORON, but does she actually think her committee has any criminal jurisdiction over the UK????

oh, and it’s almost funny how the rabid left makes heroes out of every “whistle-blower” who serves their causes, from the Pentagon Papers to the farcical Joe “Blowhard” Wilson and his consort Valerie..... but let someone blow the whistle on Climategate scams and it’s suddenly a criminal matter for the leaker??????? what b.s.

How do these a-holes take themselves seriously, and how does anyone at all have any respect or regard for Boxer, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, the Gorebots, the Clintonistas, the MalStream Media hacks etc etc.?

Her low IQ suffers from complications brought on by PMS - in her case an almost totally debilitating combination.

There has been a plethora of evidence from REAL scientists put out in the last years = derided, of course, by the goricles and ignored by the MSM - but what about US?

This refuting evidence has been available for anyone who does a tiny bit of research - without breaking a sweat.

We have the Internet. We have GOOGLE. We have YouTube.

Last year, I sent these articles - had a long list of them - everywhere I could think: all the media and in FR. I finally gave up as no one, even in FR, responded.

Besides, During last winter, one of the bitterest I can remember (and I’m a great grandmother) was too busy lugging wood in and keeping my stove going and my toes warm.

But I’ll post this Part one of one of many exposes - they’d be perfect now for FOX news to air - (go to the side bar on YouTube for lots of debunking - actually, I’ve posted a better link for everyone below)

At the very least, this would be a good video for showing as it’s super simple for the general public to understand - and they would be a lot harder to fool again/

“It’s the Sun Spots, Stupid”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BmWy6Nsm6I&feature=related

I’m going to email the above to our regulars: if they get enough emails on one subject, they will run with it.

glennbeck@foxnews.com

hannity@foxnews.com

oreilly@foxnews.com

greta@foxnews.com

rush@eibnet.com

Sarah’s FB - http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/sarahpalin?ref=ts

If you email them, do not mass email - send individually or they won’t get looked at.

I’m simply putting my title:

“It’s The Sun Spots, Stupid” and the video link

If we, the ‘little people’, go viral on this to let the media know we’re not going to let this be swept aside again - we can win this.

I’ve lost my email adds. to the MSM - as I said, I was busy last winter - and it’s getting downright cold again.

LOL. yes she is...... this is her feeble counter-attack on Sen. Inhof, to say “if you want to have hearings on the *content* of the leaked materials then I, Babs Boxer, will make sure that the majority power of this committee is used to emphasize any possible criminal aspects to the leak itself”

or that’s how I interpret her babble......

Brett Bair, Fox News Special Report, said that not one major network has done a single story on Climategate.

That is not what I meant. Mann can be booked under US law. I am talking of the hackers (if any) here. Unless they were in the US and broke US law, their hacking cannot be investigated here. Boxer wants to investigate the hacking. The hoax part of course can be investigated here and must be investigated.

Iran’s photoshop job of this pic was cleaner than Al Gore’s photoshop of the hurricanes.

“Okay, then she’s an even bigger idiot than I originally thought you said she was. “

It’s impossible to underestimate Boxer’s stupidity.

It’s 100% clear that the CRU emails, “CRU-tape letters”, were selectively obtained and released .... 1,000 emails from CRU, and other files, but specific files of importance ... not something a ‘hacker’ does, an insider at CRU did it. Most likely a CRU employee at East Anglia University in the UK who was sick of the lies and deceptions and wanted the world to know.

In short, an anonymous “whistleblower”.

Boxer wants to ignore the violations of law by Jones and the abuse of ethics by them all and go after some unknown Brit whistleblower.

Obviously there was no hacking. Part of the documents were released to a BBC reporter months ago who sat on his ass and did nothing. Those and more were then released to a larger audience. England has a whistle-blower law to protect such folks who release information of malfeasance or crime in the public interest. This clearly falls under that law.

We may never know, but I suspect she is heavily invested in the so called “green technology”. She could stand to lose her shirt over that. (Something none of in truth wants to be subjected to.)
