Posted on 05/29/2014 10:01:43 AM PDT by FR_addict
President Obama delivered a major policy speech Wednesday, claiming that fighting climate change was every bit as important to Americas national security as stopping terrorism or working to stop countries from obtaining nuclear weapons.
The world, Obama insisted, needed to come together to address this looming global threat.
That spirit of cooperation must energize the global effort to combat climate change a creeping national security crisis that will help shape your time in uniform, as were called on to respond to refugee flows, natural disasters, and conflicts over water and food, Obama warned.
Obama detailed forthcoming policy from his administration that would save the planet from this crisis...

This is scary. He can call anything a climate change problem from smoking in your own home to adjusting your thermostat above the Obama approved settings. He will be able to go into anyone's home with trumped up climate change charges.
It must have been so hard for those cadets to maintain proper discipline and not start laughing out loud.
No more cold winters!!!!
No more hot summers!!!!!
Now, Barry, if you could do something about this humidity today.
[Do I need the /s indicator?]
The phrase “tilting at windmills” comes to mind...
Tilting at windmills.
Ohhhhh... That should go over big with the West Pointers.
None of the cadets could hear a words he said because of the BS alarms blaring
I’ve noticed the Armed Forces recruiting slots on radio have been ‘enviro-centric’. Disgusting.
The painting of Canute proving to his underlings that he was unable to sweep back a flowing tide comes to mind. The population of the world is exploding, particularly in the lesser developed nations. All those additional people will need energy, and their governments will seek to provide it to them in the most efficient way, i.e. through the use of fossil fuels. That development will result in very large increases in the amount of human-generated carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that will dwarf any reductions even remotely possible in the United States and Europe. In other words, the attempt to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the United States will have very real and adverse effects on our economy without any corresponding benefit in the form of a significant reduction in projected increases in temperature even if you assume that the computer models of the alarmists are correct.
One bright day in the middle of the night,
One dead Climate Change policy got up to fight,
Against the deniers that Science said were right,
The Socialist leader told the Army to fight.
Back to back they faced each other,
Drew their swords and shot each other,
One was blind and the other couldn’t see,
So they chose a dummy for a referee.
The dummy was Al Gore, who hasn’t a clue.
The cheerleaders were the IPCC.
No freedom or prosperity for you,
And none for me.
There’s a consensus,
The news-anchors showing us polar bears cry “boo hoo”
If you don’t believe this lie is true,
Ask the president, he lies about it too.
One COULD see!
Guess which one...
What is this “climate change” bs? Is that where they ran after “Global warming” was debunked? Am I wrong or do these people want every day to be 72 degrees and partly cloudy? What a joke. There has never been, ever, “man made climate change” out side an air conditioned or heated house. These people think man and nor God created every thing including the climate. Ignore them. Forget them and do not vote for them.Stop any effort in public schools to perpetrate this lie.
Said to think that America's last straw that will destroy us is a cartoonish hoax that anybody looking at it objectively without Socialist bias would clearly see that Science does not support the AGW lie.
Climate change, concussions, something else tomorrow, anything to deflect a 1% drop in GDP from making news. Or it will be Moochelle telling school districts what they aren’t going to be allowed to serve students in the cafeteria.
Bereft of any success other than the fundamental destruction of America what do these people have to say?
I must have said this a hundred times if not more, America can survive Obam. America cannot survive the people that voted for him—usually multiple times.
The “voter” turnout was over 100% in many districts in, I believe, Philadelphia. And, oddly there was not a single vote for Romney in those districts. That is what was reported. Not one vote.
Oh, and electronic voting machines, I keep seeing how easily they can rig an election by fooling with the machines—often just shaving a few points will carry the day for the rats.
So, voter fraud on multiple votes cast by a single individual, who may not even be a real person, or a citizen, rigged electronic devices to count the vote—Lenin said he didn’t care who voted as long as he got to count them—and we have nullification. We have gone down the rabbit hole.
First we lost the Republic—America is not by its own constitution a democracy, it is supposed to be a Republic. Now we have dropped beneath democracy to a full blown dictatorship of bread and circuses for the masses who will riot if they don’t get their “benefits”.
The RINOS know this, they helped put it into place, and, they are pretty much fine with it. They think they can out-bid the rats if they can just get back in the driver’s seat on a bus trip to Hell.
The Tea Party will be thoroughly excoriated by the eRINOS, the rats and the media, Obama will be tackling game-changing issues like “climate disruption” (Global Warming is dead, as is Climate Change), all the “peoples” being served by the rats and RINOS, will, through voter fraud, voter intimidation, rigged electronic voting machines, and a sense of general apathy among the once hard working American public, bring America to her knees.
But, and this is the good news, queers can get married, babies can be murdered in the womb at our expense, illegals can flood over our borders, and the cartels will show state governments how to deal drugs.
We’ll all be so happy we will need a make-up artist just to wipe off the shit-eating grins on our faces.
Or not. I do not claim any prophetic insight.
You assume a bridge too far. It’s horseshit that Gore peddled on his way to exponentially increasing his personal wealth.
Just thinking of that movie makes me laugh out loud. Great comedy.
I am a layman, not a psychologist or a psychiatrist, and to be frank, I think there is about an inch of information from both fields mixed in with several miles of bullshit.
But with that disclaimer, I do think Obama is a classic narcissist and a sociopath (they are pretty much twins in the end).
Predictively, based on what is to be gleaned from the literature, and what has been noted by others in the field, the kenyan may be heading for a personality split, wherein his ability to act like he gives a care for anyone but himself will be obliterated by narcissistic rage when he finally realizes that no one believes in him, that most people understand him to be shallow and opportunistic and a serial, pathological liar.
I do not remember the name of the female staffer who went on radio and described how shocked she was to realize that Obama does not like people, does not call congress on the phone, does not enjoy being in the company of anything but a mirror.
Well, FU Obama, when the torches and pitchforks come down PA Ave, best get your ass on Air Force One to Nairobi.
My favorite part of what I heard of the speech was where he says that he believes in American exceptionalism, and the way to demonstrate it is to not be an exception.
And Record Amounts of Ice at the Poles
Great job Obama, if you were your own enemy that is !
That’s how absurd all of this is - what they are actually pushing on people is change of seasons. What does “Climate change” really mean? It means change of seasons! Just like in the Al Gore fiction-mentary “An inconvenient lie” when he showed the Italian mountains in the winter then showed them in the summer with the snow melted and he blamed it on “global warming” when in fact it was the change of seasons that did it. This scam is so blatant it’s the very definition of insanity. They are literally telling people the rotation of the earth is man-made and we need to change that rotation.
Most disgusting was his obscene message to these young soldiers that they would be expected to fight and die for the "peace and prosperity" -- of foreign nations.
I would bet that a lot of the cadets just zoned out during the speech. I had the opportunity to attend the USNA graduation ceremony back in the ‘90s. Al Gore was the speaker. I asked my brother who was graduating if anyone was paying attention to Gore. By the way, same climate change bs speech. He told me that very few even acknowledged that Gore was there.
I feel sorry for the parents in attendance. Their son or daughter made it through 4 years of the Academy, and they get subjected to an Obama opera. Me Me Me Me.
It is amazingly how badly and obviously Mr and Mrs President are trying to deflect from the scandals and economy to anything else.
The Boehner-funded, Commander in Chief Obama’s latest Grand Bargain is assign the US Military to mercilessly attack the Settled Science of the Climate Change Weapon of Mass destruction.
This Grand Bargain Announcement by Commander in Chief Obama was greeted by the 2014 Graduation Class at West Point with a 25 % standing ovation.
IOW, a future 75 % reduction in force of the newly commissioned Army officers from West Point.
Over the years, Doormat Republican Speaker Boehner has been able to fund all of the Democrats Commander in Chief Obamas Military decisions.
Speaker Boehner has thus been essential to helping Obama to lead from the bottom of a Socialist, Group Hug, Hell Hole.
Speaker Boehner should indeed be in line for a promotion by Arrogant Commander in Chief Obama.
Over the years, Boehner has doubled the taxpayer dollars sent to the failed Veterans Administration.
The rumor that a grateful, but still Arrogant, Obama is considering promoting Boehner to be in charge of the Veterans Administration has yet to be confirmed.
Sorry, we’re living in a country that’s so far gone that impeachment of this lawless pResident is out of the question.
Exactly. Plus, forests and trees are being chopped down at an alarming rate, so what will happen to oxygen production?
The U.S. has unlimited amounts of coal
The communists/democrats and Obama are destroying the coal industry for a hoax called global warming. this proves government is unaccountable, and a cancer that must be abolished
global warming is a hoax democrats created to justify the existence and growth of government(socialism)
There is nothing wrong with using coal. CO2 emissions cause nothing
we should be using this coal to lower energy costs for consumers and businesses .
Makes sense. A make believe “national security threat,” embraced by a make believe president.
GOing from the “war against terrorism” to being a soldier “in the war on poverty” and now a soldier “in the war on climate change”.
I hope that the 25 % of the cadets who stood and cheered Obama never get a command position in our Army. I wouldn’t trust them to know who the real enemy was.
As for the other 75% who remained seated, good luck with your career under our marxist president who doesn’t give a royal shit about your safety or missions.
* Rules of engagement promulgated which aided the Taliban
* No protection for our Embassy in Libya
* No challenging Red China on the high seas
* Promoting the Law of the Seas (UN crap) that would undermine US law and security
* Allowing U.S. citizens to be seized around the world and doing nothing to get them freed
* Fighting Boko Harem terrorists with hashtags instead of weapons
* Opening our borders instead of securing them
* Allowing Black Panther voter intimidation instead of putting their criminal asses in jail
* Arming Mexican drug cartels to kill other Mexicans and Americans
* Purging our combat veteran military commanders so that we are left with second tier personnel
* Releasing pirates when captured
* Sinking our Navy to the point that a kid in a bathtub has more floatable ships than the country does
* Building too expensive and fancy fighter planes instead of building larger air fleets with the good ones we already have, and at less cost
* Fucking over the veterans who depend upon the VA for help
* Ignoring D-Day while using Memorial Day and Veterans Day for photo-ops. Same for the Medal of Honor awards ceremonies. For Obama shows only.
* Failing to declare who our enemies are, be they communists, fascists, Putininists, Jihadists, the Moslem Brotherhood, or Friends of Hillary.
Appointing incompetent diplomats whose only claim to fame was as Obama financial bundlers (now bunglers).
* Betraying our allies in Colombia, Israel, Philippines, Taiwan, and Ukraine.
You can’t fight under a commander who is an anti-Amercian Marxist, a racist, anti-military and dumb as dog shit.
Americans, FIGHT BACK. Global warming dos not justify "battling climate change" by government or anyone else. I keep posting this but I think it needs repeating...
There's NO VALID ARGUMENT FOR GOVERNMENT TO "BATTLE CLIMATE CHANGE."
The claim that there is such a thing as global warming is not necessarily invalid. The flawed argument is, We have a global warming problem and, therefore, government must do whatever it has to do [more interference with individuals freedoms] to stop it. Its a flawed argument because it contains an unproven and flawed stealth presumption that man must be the cause of global warming.
The argument about scientific data and evidence of whether or not "global warming" exists can go on from now 'till Moses. (The Bible does indicate a warm-up and a rising sea in the last days.) It is really beside the point. The more the Right argues this wrong point, the sillier the Right potentially looks and the stronger this oft-unspoken presumption of man-made causes seems to get.
Instead, the Right needs to steer the debate to where the real point is: THE CAUSE. As there may be some debate about whether theres global warming, theres no real true, scientific debate that man is causing global warming. Arguments need to be advanced to first get this somewhat stealth presumption "out" into the open and then to defeat this Leftist excuse for more government tyranny over our lives. It should be fairly easy to win the debate over this really silly presumed notion.

If you are wondering how the first Obamas came to America, know this: One swam and the rest walked on the scum.
Some years ago, the U.N. DEFINED “climate change” as that change in climate that is caused BY HUMAN ACTIVITY.
Sort of like how a “person” is defined as someone who has already been born. (Unless born as a result of a botched abortion.)
That spirit of cooperation must energize the global effort to combat climate change a creeping national security crisis that will help shape your time in uniform, as were called on to respond to refugee flows, natural disasters, and conflicts over water and food.
What they heard:
I will send some of you to be maimed and killed just to prove I really believe in this Global Warming Hoax.
I don’t give a crap about the un. I want them removed from our soil.
Obama is far worse than Don Quixote, who had an excuse. Obama tilts at windmills with a full set of perceptive organs, and with the full support of the national treasury of the USA.We need to be rid of him and his running dogs ex-post haste.
The West Point Corps of Cadets rewarded Obama with the muffled white glove applause of “Clapter.”
US allies cringed.
Excellent comment! Every point a good one for revolution...now all we need is the balls to take our country back.
Wouldn’t it be easier for the hero of Benghazi to wait for the tide to rise and then command it to recede
Obama can’t fight the weather all he can do is blame every thing under the sun for that weather.
