Climategate: Obama's boot boys strike back
blogs.telegraph.co.uk ^ | December 15th, 2011 | James Delingpole

Posted on 12/15/2011 3:08:47 PM PST by Ernest_at_the_Beach

When I first read this morning that the police had paid a nocturnal visit to the blogger Tallbloke to confiscate his computers I thought at first it was a non-story. Jolly annoying and inconvenient for Tallbloke, obviously, but nothing too sinister. Tallbloke was one of the first people contacted when mystery whistleblower FOIA 2011 leaked the Climategate 2.0 files onto the internet; the ongoing investigation by Norfolk police into the identity of the Climategate leaker has been singularly unsuccessful; so it seemed sadly inevitable that in their flailing desperation to be seen to be doing something, anything, to get their man, the Norfolk plod would resort to tactics like this. (H/T Sir Gawain Towler)

(To give you an idea of the spirit in which Tallbloke is taking it, here's what he says at Climateaudit: "The detective- insprctor and his colleagues were polite, well mannered and did not over-react when I declined to give them my wordpress password. I politely explained that they had a warrant to search my house, not my head.")

But no: it seems the true instigator of this vexatious abuse of power by arbitrary authority may be none other than President Obama.

Here's Chris Horner with the lowdown in the Washington Examiner:

To actually see and hear Delingpole, go to NatReview online and look up Uncommon Knowledge with James Robinson. Robinson always has a daily 8 or 10 minute segment, and Delingpole is his guest this week. Delingpole is as funny an interviewee as he is a writer.

I guess there will be more retribution for disagreeing with the politically correct, party line ! And the retribution will be in the form of seizing your personal property like your personal computers, once reserved when illegally hacking or doing child pr0n !

Obama plan to use his new law to arrest truth seekers as “terrorists” deny them habeas corpus and send them to Guantanamofor indefinite detention?

So, if someone exposed a drug cartel or a child pornography ring, our so-called leaders would go after the ones that exposed the criminals?!?!?!?!

It's as if we live in the Superman Bizarro World

Obama is angry at upstarts screwing with Marxist-Leninist plans.

For LucyT - more pieces to the puzzle.

See: Wall Street Insider: Leo Gerard

http://theulstermanreport.com/2011/12/15/wall-street-insider-%e2%80%9cleo-gerard%e2%80%9d/

[SNIP]

Wall Street Insider: No – people who wish for a more stable America are not to be found within the Obama White House. Quite the opposite.

Ulster Man: How do these people destabilize the economy? How do they profit from that? If I’m understanding you correctly– that’s what you’re describing here, right?

WSI: For the most part – yes.

UM: So give me an example of that happening.

WSI: Global Warming.

UM: Please explain that.

WSI: Global Warming is rooted in the manufactured belief the earth is in crisis – and that the United States is the single largest contributor to this crisis. Crisis relates quite well to chaos, yes? So the manufacturers of the Global Warming “crisis” are threatening widespread chaos – and making a very forceful case that government is the only mechanism in which to prevent that chaos. We are talking about trillions of dollars at stake here now – the single biggest scam in the history of humankind. That’s Global Warming.

So who then actually benefits? Big Government proponents, certainly. Various 3rd world nations who hope to compete financially with the more developed nations… Investors in the so-called “green economy”. And don’t forget China – who will happily communicate the need to fight climate change with one side of their mouth while going on full speed ahead developing its own economy on the other – as American politicians work to decimate the economy here at home, taking money from the myriad of environmental groups, who in turn are so closely linked to the union groups, who in turn dominate the Democratic Party and a growing number within the Republican Party.

Mr. Soros is a major component of all of that of course. And I will repeat it again – the money being potentially generated by this is trillions of dollars. Not billions – trillions.

UM: How is Soros involved in the Global Warming movement?

WSI: (Eyebrows raise) Where do you think so many of the grants come from to “study” the impacts of Global Warming? The vast majority who make their living studying this fabricated issue do so at the bidding of Mr. Soros and his supporters – and that reality has been in place for some time The IPS, the Alliance for Climate Protection…there are so many layers that have been produced by the Soros’ interests it would take us days just to mention each one. The entertainment industry, advertising, education…it has permeated every facet of American society. The expense to do so has been tens of billions of dollars – but the payoff if successful is far more.

UM: And the labor unions are involved?

WSI: Absolutely. At every conceivable level. If not for the labor unions approval of the Global Warming issue – there would be but a handful of Democrats giving it any attention at all – President Obama included.

UM: How are the unions involved?

WSI: Are you aware of the term “Blue-Green Alliance”?

UM: No.

WSI: It is a partnership among some of the largest and most influential labor unions and equally large and influential environmental groups. The very nature of the relationship is undeniable proof that Global Warming has almost nothing to do with concerns about climate and everything to do with profit and power. The Blue-Green alliance has millions of members – from teachers, steel workers, government employees, the National Wildlife Federation…every major union and environmental group is involved. All those green energy jobs? All the environmental regulations that are to be implemented? Small business will be destroyed and only large union-backed/government-approved corporations and government entities will remain – the essence of a Statist economy. The very thing Adolph Hitler developed in Nazi Germany. The very same thing.

UM: With all due respect to your own personal experiences with the Nazis…this is all a bit vague. Can you possibly give me something more concrete?Something or someone to tie this all in? I understand Obama – President Obama, receives a lot of support from labor unions. I agree that labor unions do not have the best interests of a free market economy at heart. I understand that part of it. I’m having some difficulty linking Global Warming with the labor unions though. The two seem to contradict one another’s own interests. The Solyndra scandal – I assume you still believe that to be the bigger scandal the administration is facing?

WSI: Yes.

UM: The Solyndra thing…that seems to be more along the lines of pay-to-play politics, right? Solyndra and other companies supported Obama’s campaign and are then paid back with stimulus dollars. It’s not right – it should be prosecuted…but it’s also unfortunately a fairly common occurrence in our political system, right? And so, this big conspiracy concept – the labor unions and the environmental groups all working together to…to re-shape the American economy, or the world economy…I’m not saying you’re wrong. You certainly have far more insight into this than I would – but I’m not seeing it. I’m not understanding how they all tie in together, and Soros, and Barack – President Obama. Can you outline all of that for me? I realize we are working under a time constraint here – but any help on that would really be appreciated.

WSI: That would take far too long. What I will do is give you a name. Go back and do some research – this information is available…one of the great benefits of this new technology – and then we can pick this up here at a later time. That way you will be involved in the conversation with a far better understanding of what we are attempting to discuss. Does that sound acceptable to you?

UM: Absolutely. And I apologize for my ignorance on so much of these details. This process sometimes sends me in so many different directions trying to find answers…I am grateful for you taking the time to explain it to me. –Name withheld- doesn’t have the patience for that, and the frustration levels…

WSI: They mean well – you can trust that. I don’t agree with their tactics, or their diminished choice of language…but they are doing God’s work, and at great risk to themselves – professionally, and most likely personally as well. I would agree though that patience is a virtue of which they have little time for.

UM: So the name – who is the name that will tie all of this together? The labor unions, the environmental groups, Soros, President Obama…you have a single name that links all of that?

WSI: Gerard. Leo Gerard…

[Leo] Gerard has adopted a global perspective on unionization. Beginning in 2003, he has signed strategical alliances pledging mutual support on workers’ rights, organizing, and collective bargaining with the World Aluminum Conference of the International Metalworkers’ Federation, Australian Workers’ Union, Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union of Australia, Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists, National Union of Mine and Metal Workers of the Mexican Republic, Confederação Nacional dos Metalúrgicos of Brazil, and the Canadian Region of the Communications Workers of America.[17][18] In 2005, Gerard negotiated a strategic alliance with the million-member Amicus, the United Kingdom’s second-largest trade union and the largest private sector union.[19][20] Two years later, this strategic alliance led to a merger between the USW and Amicus’ successor, the 1.8 million-member Unite.[20] The two unions adopted a new name, Workers Uniting, although both unions will retain their individual identities for at least a few years.[
