THE LEFT CHOOSES: Climate Change v. National Security

Written by Paul Hair on September 28, 2014

Faith in the myth of climate change has become so important to the Democratic-Media Complex that it now is emphasizing it as its top national security priority even as it insists actual national security issues are not, and it’s important for conservatives to remember this when they are tempted to encourage the Obama regime to “do something” on actual national security issues. recently ran the headline, “Kerry: Climate Change More Serious Threat Than Terrorism, Poverty, WMD,” and reported the following:

“And when you think about terrorism, which we think about a lot today; poverty, which is linked obviously to the levels of terror that we see in the world today; and, of course, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction – all of these are challenges that don’t know any borders,” Kerry told government leaders and representatives from around the world.

“And that’s exactly what climate change is,” he said. “Importantly, climate change, without being connected in that way to everybody’s daily thinking, in fact, ranks right up there with every single one of the rest of those challenges. You can make a powerful argument that it may be, in fact, the most serious challenge we face on the planet because it’s about the planet itself.”

Kerry isn’t a one-off in the Democratic-Media Complex. In fact, he is very much representative of it. Hillary Clinton recently gave a speech emphasizing that she also sees climate change as the top national security threat:

The U.S. can become the “clean energy superpower of the 21st century,” Hillary Clinton said Thursday, urging businesses and the government to build up the renewable sector.

“Climate change is the most consequential, urgent, sweeping collection of challenges we face,” the former secretary of State and likely 2016 Democratic front-runner said Thursday at Harry Reid’s annual energy conference in Las Vegas. “The threat is real, and so is the opportunity … if we make the hard choices.”

And Democratic pundit Bob Beckel fully agreed with her:

“Climate change is so much more consequential than ISIS ever was it’s like putting the United States military up against the boy scouts,” Beckel said.

In response, co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle asked Beckel if he was joking, sparking a heated back and forth before Beckel made a final push to advance his argument.

“I have people that I think scientifically have a good argument other people say they have a good argument, we disagree with it,” Beckel said. “But the idea suggesting that ISIS is more important than climate change is just absurd, as far as I’m concerned.”

Democratic media personality Bill Maher is on board with this thinking as well.

During an appearance on “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” Maher praised Hillary Clinton for recent comments she made on global warming: “She said this is the biggest issue that we should be afraid of, and I agree. I am much more afraid of ice as in melting than I am about ISIS,” said Maher.

This is madness, of course. And it’s amazing that these people have any support much less support on a national scale. Even worse, they are ruling over all of us and are making their madness our nightmarish reality.

Yet while it is terrible that the Democratic-Media Complex has minimized true national security issues in favor of a myth, that doesn’t necessarily mean people should encourage Obama and his regime when it appears they are taking actual national security issues seriously. For instance, Republicans and conservatives are urging increased action against the Islamic Caliphate. The Caliphate truly is a threat. But why would anyone think a regime which thinks climate change is a threat (much less the top threat) would be able to formulate and enact a competent strategy to defeat an enemy?

So people can praise Obama for sending more troops to the Middle East and increasing operations if they want. But as for me, I don’t trust him one bit. Any man who makes religious environmental views his top national security threat is a fool and that, combined with many other things, makes it impossible for me to believe that he is capable of doing the right thing on anything else.
