Enviro-Wackos in UK Push For "Ecocide" Laws, Equate Oil Spills to Genocide

Ecocide a crime against peace?

Enviro-Wackos of the world - Unite!
There is a push to have “ecocide” made illegal as a fifth crime against peace. I am at a loss to figure out how harming the environment could be constituted as such, unless you consider nature to be the equivalent of a sovereign nation that the horrible corporate world is waging war against.
Lawyer Polly Higgins likens ecocide to slavery:
To get there, Higgins needs to borrow one more detail from the slavery story: to find a modern Charles Grant willing to stand up among his or her business peers and urge them to support the abolition of ecocide. So who might that be?
Here is a video that introduces the concept:

Shock Rasmussen Poll: Romney 45% Obama 39%

Posted by Brian
Eleven months out of the next Presidential election, the latest Rasmussen poll has GOP contender Mitt Romney opening up a six point lead over Barack Obama for the highest office in the land. This is considered a major sea change in the race as earlier in the week pollsters and pundits were reporting that Obama's approval numbers were surging to the upper 40's.  It also shows that the polls don't mean squat, as up to this point not a single vote has been cast for any candidate.  Hell, Newt Gingrich led Mitt Romney 38% - 17% on December 1st! Less than a month ago!
It is less than a week before the Iowa caucuses, which are insignificant in the grand scheme of the primary season (Just ask Mike Huckabee, Tom Harkin and Dick Gephardt who all won IA), as are the New Hampshire primaries (though less so - John McCain won the 2000 NH GOP primary). The bottom line is this: Vote for the candidate who most closely aligns with your ideology and beliefs. This is what the primary season is for.  The media has already pre-ordained Romney as the winner, and he may win the nomination. We don't know. Do the media and all of the pundits share your values, beliefs, and values?  No.  Then why do so many give up on their candidates because the an article in the paper, or that Brian Williams reports that only this or that candidate has a chance of winning?  It doesn't matter who wins the GOP nomination - Romney, Paul, Bachmann, Perry, et al.  Whoever it is, the media are going to try to destroy that candidate when they get the nomination, because the media's "job", in their minds, is to get Barack Obama reelected.
Go out and vote your values in the primaries, not the media's.

Thursday, December 29, 2011

Mitt Romney has now jumped to his biggest lead ever over President Obama in a hypothetical Election 2012 matchup. It’s also the biggest lead a named Republican candidate has held over the incumbent in Rasmussen Reports surveying to date.
The latest national telephone survey finds that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters favor the former Massachusetts governor, while 39% prefer the president. Ten percent (10%) like some other candidate in the race, and six percent (6%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording,click here.)

ObamaCare Thru The Looking Glass: UK Proposing "Minimum" Price For Alchohol

Cameron 'Backing Alcohol Minimum Price'

The Prime Minister is said to be backing plans for minimum pricing for alcohol.

David Cameron will override his Cabinet who fear it breaches European rules, it is reported.
Minimum pricing has the biggest impact on the cheapest and strongest drinks and earlier this month a group of leading academics and health experts claimed the move would save thousands of lives.
Proposals for a charge per unit of between 40p and 50p would raise £700m a year, which could go to the NHS, the Daily Telegraph says.

Michelle Obama's Warning: This Election Will Impact Supreme Court Balance "for decades to come"

Michelle Obama’s warning to gun owners

Nearly three years into President Obama’s first term in office, Michelle Obama finally said something with which I can agree.

At a recent fundraiser for President Obama’s re-election campaign in Providence, Rhode Island, the first lady told her audience:
“We stand at a fundamental crossroads for our country. You’re here because you know that in just 13 months, we’re going to make a choice that will impact our lives for decades to come … let’s not forget what it meant when my husband appointed those two brilliant Supreme Court justices … let’s not forget the impact that their decisions will have on our lives for decades to come.”

Liberal Hypocrisy: Pelosi Sticks Hawaiian's With $34,000 Security Bill at $10K a night Resort

Posted by Brian
Princess Nancy Pelosi is choosing once again sticking locals with a significant "security"bill", vacationing in Hawaii during the Christmas season, while Americans are trying to make ends meet.  I'm sure that that the dwarf Governor of Hawaii, Neil Abercrombie (a well known marxist who he served for too many years in the U.S. House of Representatives), is thrilled to have both the President and Stretch Pelosi grace his State with their presence, while sticking the locals with the bill.

While President Obama Arrives in Hawaii Amidst Security and Fanfare, Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Slips Quietly into Big Island Resort

BY MALIA ZIMMERMAN - News that President Barack Obama arrived in Hawaii this weekend to join his wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha in time for a Christmas holiday has been covered by news media worldwide.

The first family and their friends have been enjoying a reclusive 17-day holiday vacation in beach front homes in Kailua, Oahu.

But another powerful politician is here for the holidays as well, albeit on another island and with less media attention.

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, who served as Speaker of the House and is now head of the House minority, is once again spending her Christmas at the exotic Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka'upulehu in Kona on the island of Hawaii.

Iranian Lawmaker: 'These War Games Are a Warning to the Western Countries'

(CNSNews.com) – Iranian state and semi-official media lined up behind the regime this week in a show of nationalistic pride as Iran’s navy began 10 days of war games designed to showcase its “regional dominance” and display its ability to shut off the crucial Strait of Hormuz if threatened.
Naval spokesmen were quoted as saying the “Velayat 90” maneuvers, the biggest ever of their kind, were being held across a vast area from the Gulf of Oman to the Gulf of Aden – waters stretching between Somalia in the west, the Indian subcontinent in the east, and Oman and Yemen to the north.

Obama to ask for debt limit hike: Treasury official

(Reuters) - The White House plans to ask Congress by the end of the week for an increase in the government's debt ceiling to allow the United States to pay its bills on time, according to a senior Treasury Department official on Tuesday.
The approval is expected to go through without a challenge, given that Congress is in recess until later in January and the request is in line with an agreement to keep the U.S. government funded into 2013.


The Armenian Genocide - Caliphate, Jizya, and the Ottoman Empire

The Jihad Against the Armenian, Assyrian, and Greek Christians

By Janet Levy

In Germany, where Holocaust denial is punishable by up to five years in prison, Stuttgart University recently capitulated to pressure from resident Turkish Muslims and canceled an event entitled, "Persecution, Expulsion and Annihilation of Christians in the Ottoman Empire 1912-1922." Ironically, this occurred in a country that was forced to confront its own genocidal past, educate its population and pay restitution to victims. University officials explained that they wanted to "remain neutral" on the subject of the nearly 100-year-old, well-documented Turkish massacre of more than two million Christians. Citing neutrality in the face of crimes against humanity is deeply troubling, particularly in light of Germany's Holocaust past and the missed opportunity the event represented to educate students about genocide and potentially prevent its recurrence.

Equally troubling is Turkey's continued denial and banning of information about these crimes, not only within its own borders, but, as exemplified in Germany, within other countries as well. In contrast to Germany where laws since the end of World War II seek to prevent a Holocaust from ever happening again, the Turkish government under Article  301 of the Turkish Penal Code, passed in 2005, makes it a crime punishable by up to two years imprisonment to insult the Turkish state. This provision prevents any public commemoration or consideration of the Turkish Muslim atrocities committed against Ottoman Christians.

Holder Invents Racist Threat To Justify Blocking Voter ID Laws

Posted by Brian

Holder's Voter ID Fraud

The AG invents fears of ballot suppression.

The Obama Administration's re-election mobilization continues: Witness Eric Holder's attempt to play the race card and perhaps twist the law in a campaign against voter identification laws.
In the Attorney General's telling, the movement in the states to require voters to show some ID is a revival of minority disenfranchisement a la Jim Crow. A growing number of minorities, he said in a speech last week, are now worried about "the same disparities, divisions and problems" that beset the country in 1965 and "many Americans, for the first time in their lives . . . now have reason to believe that we are failing to live up" to the promise of democracy for all.
If you haven't heard about this national crisis, perhaps that's because you don't travel in Mr. Holder's political circles. He is merely repeating the howls of groups like the NAACP and the George Soros-funded Brennan Center, which claim without evidence that voter ID laws hurt minorities.

Ron Paul's Fans Can't Have It Both Ways

Ron Paul's fans have been complaining that he isn't being taken seriously. Now that he has a chance to win Iowa because of the lack of scrutiny he's had so far, people are starting to take Paul seriously and look at some of the crazy things he's said and wants to do. Ron Paul's fans don't seem to like that either. But, you can't have it both ways. If you want to be President, you don't get to limit the conversation to the Constitution, deficit cutting, and the gold standard. Your opponents get to pick things out of your record that they want to talk about, too, and Ron Paul has a lot of disqualifiers that make it impossible for him to be the next President of the United States.

DOJ Atty. Perjures Self 3 Times, Goes Unpunished, Continues Assignments in Sensitive Areas

Posted by Brian

The Justice Department Condones Perjury … Again 
Why should we be surprised? Look at how Eric Holder and the DOJ have mishandled the investigation into Operation Fast & Furious and repeatedly misled Congress.

A career employee in the Voting Section of Justice’s Civil Rights Division has confessed to committing perjury, sources say.  The employee, Stephanie Celandine Gyamfi, reportedly told investigators from the Inspector General’s Office that she perjured herself during an inquiry into Justice Department leaks during the previous administration. Despite the admission, she has not been fired for criminal malfeasance. Indeed, it appears she has not been disciplined in any meaningful way at all.
The genesis of Ms. Gyamfi’s perjury is apparently rooted in political attacks on the Bush Justice Department. Throughout 2005-2007, numerous attorney-client privileged documents, confidential personnel information, and other sensitive legal materials were leaked from inside the Voting Section to the Washington Post and various left-wing blogs.
One of the most prominent leaks involved the Voting Section’s privileged, internal analysis of the 2003 Texas congressional redistricting plan, submitted to the Civil Rights Division in October 2003 for review under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. The contents of the internal memorandum appeared on the front page of the Washington Post on Dec. 2, 2005, to great fanfare from Democrats on Capitol Hill and their surrogates in the liberal blogosphere.

Voter ID - Eric Holder Goes To War Against S. Carolina

Posted by Brian
The Holder/Obama Justice Department, in its continued race-based approach to voting rights, has blocked a S. Carolina law requiring that voters actually prove that they are who they say they are before stepping into the voting booth.  The the civil rights activists who continue to claim that these laws disenfranchise voters, with minorities of course, hardiest hit, use this straw-man argument over and over against Republicans in order to paint the GOP as anti-black, anti-immigrant, and anti-elderly.  No proof, mind you, that it suppresses voting.  In fact, the opposite has been shown to be true in Georgia, where voter ID is mandatory. Turnout in Georgia increased, including an increase in the number of blacks who voted, and an increase of Democrat voters by over 100,000 from 2004 to 2008. So why is Eric Holder and the Justice Department opposed to voter ID requirements.  Because it has never been about disenfranchising voters legal voters.  It is about empowering groups like ACORN, illegal immigrant/open border advocates, and other community activist groups to commit voter fraud on a scale that can turn close races into Democrat landslides.
The Holder Justice Department is nothing but an illegal arm of the Obama 2012 reelection campaign.  If you thought that Nixon had a dirty tricks team, you ain't seen nothing yet!

Sen. Lugar: Tea Party The Reason That GOP Has Minority In Senate

Posted by Brian

Sen. Lugar is illustrative of the entrenched mindset in Washington that only 'Party approved' candidates need apply for national office. Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union with Candy Crowley", Sen. Lugar (R-IN) blames the Tea Party for the GOP minority in the Senate.  He ignores the fact that it was the establishment Republicans who withheld support from numerous candidates who were in striking distance of Democrat incumbents in the 2010 midterm elections - most notably, Sharon Angle, who had a legitimate shot at upending Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada, and Christine O'Donnell in Delaware who was knee-capped by Karl Rove on the night she won the GOP primary in that state. Both of those candidates were virtually ignored by the RNC financially, and were in many cases, especially O'Donnell, viciously attacked by so-called conservative pundits and politicians, undermining their campaigns.

The current state of the GOP is what it is precisely because those who are currently entrenched in the upper reaches of the party apparatus are threatened by the current tide of conservatives, who are fed up with the "play along to get along" brand of politicians who currently reside in the august halls of Congress.  They throw around words and phrases meant to marginalize conservatives, saying they are not "statesman-like", or they don't have the proper "temperament". Conservatives are called "right-wing bomb throwers" if they call out Democrats who spew some of the most vile, despicable charges against Republicans. A Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, or any other Democrat, can go before the cameras and accuse Republicans, without an inkling of shame, of wanting to kill seniors, starve children, lynch blacks, et. al., with no impunity or facts, and according to GOP leaders we are supposed to bend over, grab the ankles, and take it.  To speak up and call them out on these incendiary charges, as Rep. Allen West (R-FL) did with Wasserman-Schultz is not, according to the GOP leadership, "statesman-like". In fact, in West's case, he was expected to apologize to her. To his credit, he said not only no, but hell no, he wouldn't apologize.
The state of our country is what it is precisely because we, as conservatives have chosen to take the "high road" in our debates with liberals, while they have made careers of getting down into, and staying, in the muck. President Obama was correct when he said that "you can put lipstick on a pig, but in the end it is still a pig". What was lost on people was that the illustration was more descriptive of Wasserman-Schultz, Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, and their ilk, rather than his intended target of Sarah Palin.
Senator Lugar has it wrong, as do so many in the GOP leadership. The problem is not in the Tea Party. The Tea Party does not need to moderate. Does he think that the Democrats are going to suddenly "moderate" their message? The answer is no! Pelosi, Reid, and the rest of the leftists in the Democrat Party, haven't moderated in the past, and they certainly aren't going to suddenly moderate in the future.  The vast majority of their positions are anathema to those who cherish freedom. There is no compromise with their positions.  There is only defeat.  The current GOP leadership is not equipped, intellectually or ideologically, to deal with the current crop of leftists which now hold the reins of power in the Democrat Party.  Boehner, McConnell, and the rest of the GOP leadership show, no ooze, weakness and the Democrats take advantage of that every chance they get. The GOP leadership are afraid to get their hands dirty, let alone get down in the mud with these pigs.
No, Senator Lugar, the problem is not the Tea Party.  The problem is you, and the other weak-kneed career politicians like you.  This country got into the shape it is in on your watch, not the Tea Party's. It's time for you and the rest of the GOP establishment dinosaurs to step aside.
