  • A Green Tea Party

    States' Rights: A revolt against economic hardship imposed by unelected bureaucrats based on junk science is brewing. This Tea Party movement wants the faulty finding on carbon dioxide to be reviewed and dumped. They say you shouldn't mess with Texas, and on Tuesday the state filed suit to overturn the "endangerment" finding by the Environmental Protection Agency that carbon dioxide is a dangerous pollutant that must be regulated. CO2, the basis for all plant and therefore all animal life, was targeted early by environmental activists as the root cause of anthropogenic (man-made) global warming (AGW). But the Earth has cooled...

    Climate Change: Major U.S. corporations have set up a Web site calling for a global climate treaty to be signed in Copenhagen. Considering recent evidence of massive climate fraud, perhaps they should reconsider. Many will remember the classic soft drink ad campaign where young people from many nations gather on a mountaintop and sing that they'd like to buy the world a Coke, the theory being that sharing a soda was the key to world peace. That sort of naivete has led peoples and governments around the world to accept at face value the outright fraud perpetrated by the Milli...

    Health Reform: House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer says it's constitutional to mandate insurance coverage. Congress, he insists, has "broad authority" to make us buy things to provide for the "general welfare." Democrats' Alice In Wonderland interpretation of what they consider to be a "living Constitution," where words mean what they say they mean based on political considerations, gets more bizarre by the minute. (snip) We've been down this road before. In 1994, Hillary Clinton's secretive health care task force was trying to nationalize health care. "A mandate requiring all individuals to purchase health insurance would be an unprecedented form of...
  • Lord Christopher Monckton: The Treaty In Copenhagen Will Create A Communist One World Government.

    Well known climate change expert Lord Christopher Monckton has read the treaty to be signed at Copenhagen. He deduces that it will result in a one world communist government. He notes that if Obama signs the treaty our Constitution has to follow it. There would be a shift of wealth from the west to the east and America would bankroll the whole thing. Here is a clip from his speech given on Oct. 14th 2009

    Federal Powers: Where in the U.S. Constitution does it say the government can force people to buy health insurance? And by what authority does it prohibit the purchasing of insurance across state lines?A key part of the administration's plan to reform health care is what is called the "individual mandate" — a requirement that everyone must have health insurance either through his or her employer or purchased individually. A good chunk of the uninsured are that way of their own volition. They are young and healthy and feel they have better things to do with their money at this point...
  • 25 Yrs On, UK Blunder Lets Porn Be Sold Legally to Kids (European Union Stupidity)

    Retailers who sell children violent or pornographic videos will be immune from prosecution for the next three months after the discovery of a government blunder 25 years ago. Britain should have notified the European Commission of the existence of the Video Recordings Act 1984 (VRA) — which regulated the industry — but failed to do so. “Unfortunately, discovery of this omission means that, a quarter of a century later, VRA is no longer enforceable against individuals in UK courts,” said Barbara Follett, minister for culture and tourism. Follett said people currently being prosecuted under the act would not be convicted...

    Journalism: After the eulogies, the fact remains that "the most trusted man in America" betrayed that trust. He helped snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in Vietnam and tried hard to do the same in Iraq.President Obama on Friday praised Walter Cronkite as a journalistic icon, calling the CBS anchor the "voice of certainty in an uncertain world." More to the point, he was the father of advocacy journalism, the patron saint of media bias. He went from reporting news to recreating it in his own image. Far from the image of the patriotic war correspondent, Cronkite was a...
  • Petraeus: Iraqis Want to Establish National Sovereignty

    WASHINGTON, April 9, 2008 – The Iraqi government wants to establish itself as an independent entity that one day can stand on its own feet without U.S. assistance, the top U.S. military officer in Iraq testified before the House Armed Services Committee here today. “They want to do that as much as we do,” Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, commander of Multinational Force Iraq, told House panel members. Senior Iraqi governmental leaders are placing themselves “under enormous personal pressure and collective pressure of the various political elements in Iraq to increasingly exercise their sovereignty,” Petraeus said. In fact, Prime Minister...

  • Senator Max Baucus: Phony Champion of U.S. Trade Laws

    For education and discussion only. Not for commercial use. Senator Max Baucus has long successfully posed as a staunch defender of U.S. trade laws – this despite having supported all the recent trade deals that have either actually weakened those laws or rendered them irrelevant. But last month, the Montana Democrat's true colors were never clearer. During the fight in 2001-2 over Presidential fast track trade negotiating authority, one of the most controversial issues was whether to permit the administration to put the future of U.S. trade laws on the table for negotiation in the next round of world trade...

    The U.S. Congress is all knowing. Just ask the leadership. The most recent proof is the proposal by the chairman of the House International Relations Committee. The Henry J. Hyde United Nations Reform Act of 2005. This legislation would "require" Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to press for restructuring that international body. Or else. The "or else" is the United States would hold back 50 percent of its U.N. dues and obligations (an estimated $439 million in 2006). Some of Hyde's proposals make sense, such as the creation of a U.N. ethics office or increased oversight and auditing. But this...

    Immigration Daily is pleased to bring to our readers a pro-immigration op-ed by Rupert Murdoch. Mr. Murdoch is the head of News Corp, one of the largest media companies in the world, involved in the production and distribution of newspapers, films, television, satellite, and cable tv. We commend Mr. Murdoch for taking the time to write and express his pro-immigration views (we encourage other successful immigrants to follow his lead). Some excerpts: "In my book, anyone who comes here and gives an honest day's work for an honest day's pay is not only putting himself closer to the American Dream,...

    Taiwan's President Maintains Hard Line Mon Mar 29,10:05 PM ET By Philip P. Pan and David E. Hoffman, Washington Post Foreign Service TAIPEI, Taiwan, March 29 -- President Chen Shui-bian declared Monday that his narrow reelection victory was a mandate from voters to press ahead with an aggressive agenda to develop Taiwan as an "independent, sovereign country" despite the risk of war with China. In his first interview since an attempt on his life and an election his opponents are contesting, Chen vowed to go forward with plans to write a new constitution for Taiwan within two years, a move...

    Once again, the United Nations is trying a power grab, at the expense of the sovereignty of the United States of America -- and this time, they want to allow international bureaucrats to TAX the American people. They MUST be stopped. According to the American Policy Center (, "any day now this nation could find itself part of an international treaty that abolishes freedom on seven-tenths of the world's surface." That's because the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea, a treaty that has remained dead in the water since Bill Clinton's presidency, has re-emerged as a threat to...
