Our dear president made history this week with his trip to Alaska. He is the only Oval Office occupier to cross the Arctic Circle and as NBC reports “become the first U.S. president to receive a crash course in survival techniques from Bear Grylls”. I can’t say I know who Bear Grylls is but with a name like that he just has to be a wilderness authority, right?
I wonder why our president felt it necessary to learn wilderness survival skills. Maybe he is trying to bolster his manly-man cred. Vladimir Putin makes a strong claim to the most buffed world tyrant title, so this could be Obama’s way of shedding his more “metro” persona. More likely, he is showing us the skills we will all need in the near future as a result of his economic policies.
Besides his “Bear” encounter, Obama took the opportunity to rename a national monument. Yes, Mount McKinley will now be called Mount Denali which means “the high one” — how appropriate. Obama cites the premise that most of the people in Alaska call it that anyway. If that’s a reason for renaming something, maybe Obama should change his name to what most of us are calling him.
And of course, true to form at the Glacier Conference, Obama couldn’t resist again warning us of the greatest threat to our national security — no not Islamic terrorism, not an $18 trillion deficit with $200 trillion in unfunded liabilities, not Russian expansionism, not a new strain of Ebola nor artificial intelligence. No, we heard once again that man-made climate change, aka global warming, is the biggest threat we face as a nation. In an especially shrill speech Obama sternly warned:
— The climate is changing faster than our ability to address it.
— The U.S. is one of the main causes of the problem.
— The time to heed the critics and the cynics and the deniers is past.
— It’s no longer enough to just have conferences.
As I wrote in my article from last April — the global warming rhetoric is going to get more and more apocalyptic. The coming United Nations Climate Change Conference at the end of November is slated to put global governance in place and we are going to hear more alarming predictions of coming climate catastrophes to fuel acceptance.
The real data does not support any kind of CO2 induced temperature rise yet we continued to be lied to about it. Why? Well, let’s take a journey back in time to Nazi Germany. To get the German people to buy in to the Nazi scheme, Hitler and his minister of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, used a technique called “The Big Lie”.
Goebbels described the method this way:
If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.
You get the idea? Those who point out that the real data clearly show that mankind is not causing the planet to heat up are described as cynics, deniers. Truth is the enemy. And, you have to move fast or else the population will catch on to what you are really up to — global Marxist tyranny.
And we can’t leave out Saul Alinsky, one of our president’s mentors. In the chapter on tactics from his book Rules For Radicals, tactic five says: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule.” Just try to deny global warming in public and see what you are called by the political/media/academic class.
Alinsky’s seventh tactic says: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” The climate change promoters know the clock is ticking and they now have to move fast. As I said earlier, their rhetoric will become increasingly shrill and the predictions more dire.
Alinsky’s eighth tactic says to “Keep the pressure on.” Do you hear Obama speak on much of anything else these days? When he’s not speaking of global warming he’s goading the EPA to write more onerous regulations on our energy industries.
Finally, Alinsky’s thirteenth tactic: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Their target is CO2 here, the natural byproduct of societal prosperity. If you wanted to attack a technologically advanced society, you go after its energy. Everything we have and enjoy is based on energy. And energy production and use produces CO2. So if you want to control and affect the United States, you control its energy. To control its energy, you go after CO2 emissions.
Let’s say the earth is warming like the climate changers proclaim. Is that really a bad thing? I don’t think so. Historically, a warmer planet has been better for mankind. A warmer planet gives you longer growing seasons and wider areas for cultivation. More atmospheric CO2 means plants grow more lush and produce more fruit. Sounds like a good thing to me. Maybe we need more CO2 not less.
Don’t fall for The Big Lie. Our nation’s sovereignty depends on it.
