  • Dems Propose Back Door Energy Taxes

    Big Government ^ | September 10, 2010
    While Harry Reid may have allowed the energy tax hikes to die on the floor of the Senate, liberals nationwide have continued their attacks on the energy industry. The Gulf oil spill is barely a fond memory of a moratorium and Democrats are already seizing on the incident to push a host of job-killing, industry-kneecapping taxes and regulations designed to do what they failed to do legislatively: take down the American energy industry.First the regulations: starting in January, the EPA will begin enforcing a little known provision called the “Tailoring Rule” – a new series of regulations that allow the...

    Nationalization has its consequences. Just note the rhetoric coming from some prominent voices on the left. The government's foray into offering services normally provided by the private sector by bailing out aging mortgage giants gives it the power to implement "green" building requirements, according to New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman. He suggested Sept. 23 that any construction financed by government-funded mortgages should be certified "green" according to the standards of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System. "If we're going to be in the mortgage business as a government, then every government-funded mortgage -...

Among the leading beneficiaries of this public trust has been the international activist organization Greenpeace. The group began with a 1971 protest against US testing of nuclear weapons, which it followed up with an attempt to physically block French nuclear testing in 1972 by sailing a...

    World Bank Urges Renewed International Commitment to Combat Desertification at Convention in Havana September 3, 2003—The World Bank yesterday called upon all stakeholders - both rich and poor countries alike -of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) to do more to address land degradation and take concrete implementation actions that are required to meet the objectives of the Convention. The call came at the Sixth Session of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention to Combat Desertification currently taking place in Havana, Cuba. According to the United Nations, drought and desertification threaten the livelihoods of over 1...

    WorldNetDaily / Commentary The Third SectorHenry Lamb Posted: August 9, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 WorldNetDaily.com A new mechanism of governance is emerging. Georgetown University calls it "The Third Sector." The United Nations calls it "Civil Society." The President's Council on Sustainable Development calls it "a new, collaborative decision process." Whatever it's called, it is a process to formulate public policy by non-elected individuals, unencumbered by the legislative process. The process was developed by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and the United Nations. As the IUCN developed its land-management policy proposals, a network of "civil society" organizations, called...

    The extent to which green-left thinking on the environment has taken hold in the mass media and at all levels of education has made it the dominant voice in the so-called environmental debate. There is not one opinion leader or political party, especially the Democrats, that has not been heavily influenced by it one way or another. However, it would be a serious mistake to assume that the green-left is ideologically united. It is not. Basically it comprises two factions: the Marxist-Leninist faction and the utopian faction. Both are temporarily united by their mutual loathing of capitalism. I say temporarily...

    The one abiding goal of both the Greens and animal rights lunatics is to attack America's economic base in every way possible. This is why, for the past few decades, they have sought to undermine every kind of industry in the nation, from timber to energy, from agriculture to fast foods, from mining to ranching. Whole books have been written on this subject, but it is instructive to take a quick look at just some of the recent headlines that reflect the myriad ways Greens and animal rights people engage in an endless war on America. In early April,...

Charles Bolgiano Landowners and sportsmen in Pennsylvania are beginning to learn how devastating, threatening and costly the Biodiversity - Socialist movement in Pennsylvania has become. It is not only a serious threat to hunting sports, but goes much further, by threatening the very foundations on which this Nation was founded, namely, the 1st and 2nd Amendments of the Constitution, and the basic right to own property. Several years ago (1996-97) the State was paid a visit by Maurice Strong, a Canadian Socialist, and chief organizer of...

    On March 14, 2002, a program to capture the Capitalist system and control it for the purpose of advancing the twisted values of environmentalism was spelled out in a presentation titled "Restructuring the Global Economy." This was a rare occasion when deliberate deception was not used to mask the Green's true intentions. According to the Greens behind this plan, "Economic globalization is the greatest single contributor to the massive ecological crisis of our time, yet this is an aspect that is often ignored by the media, NGOs, policymakers, and citizens. Its inherent emphasis on increased trade requires corresponding expansion...

    Largely unreported in the mainstream press of America is the unified opposition to the war for regime change in Iraq from both the Greens and worldwide Socialists. The same person could have written their public statements for the way they mirror one another. This only serves to underscore what observers of these political groups have long known; the Greens are merely another element of Socialist opposition to Capitalism. In September of last year, the Green Party of the United States issued a statement, declaring their opposition to the invasion of Iraq. Under the aegis of the United Nations which authorized...

    The Invisible Hand's Green Thumb By Nick Schulz TCS Adam Smith may not have known it at the time he penned his famous phrase, but it's turning out that the invisible hand happens to have a green thumb. A growing body of research supports a controversial proposition, one that's forcing environmentalists and the general public to rethink long-held views on business, markets, energy use, technology and the environment. The proposition is that, as the subtitle of an important new book puts it, "poverty, not affluence, is the environment's number one enemy." The book is The Real Environmental Crisis by Jack...

    Green and animal rights organizations do not subsist on the sale of calendars, books, and stuffed animals. They are wealthy beyond the comprehension of millions of Americans and others who support them in the belief they are "protecting the environment" and saving animals from "cruelty" and "extinction." You will be astonished to learn that there are more than 4,000 environmental groups in America today. "And the number is growing," warns Ron Arnold of the Center for the Defense of Free Enterprise, "and they are really out to get you. Worse, they have the clout and the money to do it."...

    It was trade and transnational corporations versus the environment at the recent Rio Plus Ten World Summit on Sustainable Development here, and the green groups, complain their supporters, came out on the short end of the stick. When the world gathered in Johannesburg a few weeks ago for the conference, the world's major environmentalist groups and NGOs (non-governmental organizations) believed they would make major gains in their respective agendas. However, now that the dust has settled, it would appear that the world's most powerful corporations have cemented their agenda of promoting trade, while the concerns of environmentalists – both radical...
