    President Barack Obama lit into GOP climate change skeptics in a speech Wednesday night, delighting a crowd of 800 to 900 environmentalists in Washington’s Ronald Reagan Building. He said Republicans in Congress are out of touch with the American public, who “don’t just say, ‘No, I don’t believe anything scientists say.’ Except — where? — in Congress. Folks will tell you climate change is a hoax or a fad or a plot — a liberal plot.” Obama also took aim at Republicans for pleading ignorance on climate by saying they aren’t scientists. “I’m not a doctor either, but if a...

    Barack Obama has turned up the political heat on climate deniers, making fun of Republicans in Congress for catering to “a bunch of fringe elements”. In a speech to environmental activists in Washington, Obama suggested Republicans were playing dumb on climate change to avoid a backlash from ultra-conservative Tea Party elements. Republicans actually recognised climate change was real, Obama suggested, but were afraid to admit it in public. “They ducked the question and said 'Hey I'm not a scientist,' which really translates into 'I accept that manmade climate change is real but if I say so I will be run...

    ... The president mocked those who question the science behind climate change or the urgency of addressing the problem, which has emerged as a legacy issue for his presidency and a polarizing topic in November congressional elections. "In most communities and work places, et cetera, when you talk to folks, they may not know how big a problem, they may not know exactly how it works, they may doubt that we can do something about it, but generally they don’t just say, no, I don’t believe anything scientists say," he said, to laughter. He likened evidence that human activity causes...
  • Progressives: Lies and More Lies, In Three Acts III

    Act III: Escalation, Intimidation, and Provocation The latest threat against the Tea Parties has come from the anarchists, who are reporting that they will disrupt rallies at some point. Here are some comments from Steve (from Motor City Times) at the Resistance. Anarchists are planning to infiltrate Tea Party rally’s in the near future. According to the ultra Liberal Raw Story.com they are going to stage peaceful protest and advocate an increase in food stamp subsidies. Or something along those lines: But is it war the anarchists are planning? Not according to the blog posting that started it all: A...
  • Progressives: Lies and More Lies, In Three Acts II

    Act II: Stage Crimes and Blame the Opposition: As we pointed out in our recent post, the Democrats have a long history of staging events to smear their opposition and promote the part of the narrative that the Tea Parties are filled with violent terrorists. They’ve been forwarding this for about a year now, starting with the MIAC and DHS “reports.” Since the Tea Parties have not given them the “crisis” that they need, they will now create them. There have been threats phoned in to Dem headquarters around the country. There have been windows broken. A Conservative, either using...

    Note: This is the first in a series of posts about what I believe to be the current state of the smear campaign against the Tea Parties. Back in February, we were discussing the report that the Democrats were going to go after the Tea Parties. Now, while many bloggers (including myself) discussed this at length, I was left wondering, “why let this out in the open?” After all, if someone is going to go after someone (or something), why broadcast it? It’s not the best tactic, is it? The events of the last two weeks have given me some...
  • Clinton, Carville to Attack Tea Party Leaders

    Say what you will about Carville, but he is the master of slime. This is going to be a classic, Clinton era, smear campaign. PI’s will swarm over people’s histories, searching for the slightest indiscretions. What they cannot find might be invented, all in an effort to smear and discredit anyone they can get. If they can get someone to turn, or simply silence them…mission accomplished! Also, the attack is designed to have a demoralizing effect on the movement, as well as putting it on the defensive, rather than the offense. We need to be aware of this, and plow...

    The Devil and the Democrats The Fifth Column Lance Fairchok, Senior WriterSeptember 21, 2007   When MoveOn.org ran its New York Times attack ad against General Petraeus prior to his congressional testimony, they did so with the full knowledge and consent of the Democratic leadership. During the hearing more than the usual level of partisan grandstanding and staged audience participation obscured the issue, as the Democrats attempted to discredit an honest soldier and a man of integrity, honor and rare intellect. An accurate synopsis of the entire circus would be, “We appreciate your service and sacrifice but you’re a...

    After reading a few threads here recently about the Delphi Technique, and watching the youtube interview with Charlotte Iserbyt, I connected a couple of things in a way I hadn't looked at them before. I should also mention I have created a detailed presentation of Education in America from the beginning to now, from a biblical christian worldview (ie I call a spade a spade). In any case it got me thinking about why liberals never give up (compared to conservatives who just don't seem to fight with the same zeal.) What's behind the differences? And there are several reasons....

Lynn Stulter -- The Delphi Technique was originally conceived as a way to obtain the opinion of experts without necessarily bringing them together face to face. In Educating for the New World Order by Bev Eakman, the reader finds reference upon reference for the need to preserve the illusion that there is "Lay, or community, participation in the decision-making process, while...
