White House Funding Attacks On Skeptics

There are large numbers of web sites devoted to making personal attacks on climate skeptics. Apparently they are being funded by the White House.

ScreenHunter_1119 Feb. 20 15.53

They aren’t debating the science. They are simply making personal attacks, while desecrating the memory of the Holocaust.

The President’s Select Committee on Un-Climate Religion Activity.

“Are you now, or have you ever been a member of any skeptical organization?”

Astonishing that the US could be experiencing such vile behavior from the President in 2015.

    I especially love when they comment about stupid/ignorant/redneck conservatives/Republicans. Then I tell them to report what CNN exit polls say about education level. They never respond.

    • stpaulchuck says:

      that’s just another lie that’s tribal knowledge in liberal elitist minds that cannot stand up to the slightest challenge by facts. Often they will find some thoroughly discredited “study” to throw back at you safe in their created universe of myth and hype.

    • Gary H says:

      Thanks for exposing your bigotry (yep – look up the definition in the dictionary).

      What would be more worthwhile, would be to get CNN (rest of the MSM) to report the results of their polls to the broad audience – the electorate – when the results don’t jive with their agenda. Censorship is the name of the game, you see.

        CNN? You have to be kidding. Ted Turner owns CNN

        “Right now, there are just way too many people on the planet. We need to cut the world’s population from the current five billion to no more than 250 million to 350 million.”

          Exactly, the exit polls Most of the time reveal that high school grads and drop outs vote Democratic but college educated vote Republican. The other interesting note is “advanced degrees” vote Democrat. The progressive Elites make the ignorant think they are smart.

        “Thanks for exposing your bigotry”

        No need to ‘expose bigotry’ all we have to do is let the lefties speak for themselves and their totalitarian tendencies and their hatred for other humans shines through.

        Then We come to the words of John Holdren, Obama’s Science Czar

        Human Ecology: Problems & Solutions John Holdren, Paul and Anne Ehrlich.

        A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States. …Resources and energy must be diverted from frivolous and wasteful uses in overdeveloped countries to filling the genuine needs of underdeveloped countries. … The need for de-development presents our economists with a major challenge. They must design a stable, low-consumption economy in which there is a much more equitable distribution of wealth than in the present one. Redistribution of wealth both within and among nations is absolutely essential, if a decent life is to be provided for every human being.
        ……

        Ecoscience, by John Holdren, Paul and Anne Ehrlich.

        a Planetary Regime—sort of an international superagency for population, resources, and environment. Such a comprehensive Planetary Regime could control the development, administration, conservation, and distribution of all natural resources, renewable or nonrenewable, …..

        If this could be accomplished, security might be provided by an armed international organization, a global analogue of a police force…. The first step necessarily involves partial surrender of sovereignty to an international organization….

        it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society…. Adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods is a suggestion that seems to horrify people more than most proposals for involuntary fertility control. Indeed, this would pose some very difficult political, legal, and social questions, to say nothing of the technical problems. No such sterilant exists today***

        …..

        ***The sterilant now exists thanks to grants from the USDA. In 2001 The Epicyte company announced a ‘contraceptive corn’—after researchers discovered a rare class of human antibodies that attack sperm. By isolating the genes that regulate the manufacture of these antibodies, and by putting them in corn plants, the company has created tiny horticultural factories that make contraceptives. The company itself was taken over in 2004 by Biolex located in Pittsboro NC.

        The goal of reducing Americans back to serfs is not recent.

        After all when you read between the lines it is all about a low consumption life style for the serfs with death after you are past usefulness to ‘society’ (Read the parasitic elite)

        In the UK the NHS kills off 130,000 elderly every year. 29% of patients die due to deliberate starvation/dehydration by hospitals. (The Liverpool ‘Care’ Pathway) The hospitals are paid millions to kill off their elderly patients Hospitals are being paid millions of pounds to reach targets for the number of patients put on a controversial pathway according to data based on Freedom of Information requests.

        Now sick babies go on death pathway: Doctor admits starving and dehydrating ten babies to death in neonatal unit. Until now, end of life regime, the Liverpool Care Pathway, was thought to have involved only elderly and terminally-ill adults.

        Now thanks to Obummercare the Liverpool Care Pathway has come to the USA.

        …Increasingly, hospitals demand the legal right to refuse care that is “futile”—by their definition. Medicare’s refusal to pay is a strong motive. Your consent provides immunity. Sedatives, to keep you quiet and peaceful, are cheap.

        I mentioned, that the goal of reducing Americans back to serfs is not recent.

        Pascal Lamy was Director-General of the World Trade Organization, European Commissioner for Trade and chef de cabinet for Delors the President of the European Commission. He has been a member of the French Socialist Party since 1969.

        Pascal Lamy: Whither Globalization?
        …In the same way, climate change negotiations are not just about the global environment but global economics as well — the way that technology, costs and growth are to be distributed and shared….

        Can we balance the need for a sustainable planet with the need to provide billions with decent living standards? Can we do that without questioning radically the Western way of life?…

        The reality is that, so far, we have largely failed to articulate a clear and compelling vision of why a new global order matters — and where the world should be headed. Half a century ago, those who designed the post-war system — the United Nations, the Bretton Woods system, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) — were deeply influenced by the shared lessons of history.

        All had lived through the chaos of the 1930s — when turning inwards led to economic depression, nationalism and war. All, including the defeated powers, agreed that the road to peace lay with building a new international order — and an approach to international relations that questioned the Westphalian, sacrosanct principle of sovereignty….

        So FDR agreed to destroy USA as a sovereign nation in the 1930s. That certainly explains his destructive policies.

      • dom says:

        Have you ever seen or heard so much rancor coming from an American president and his cabinet towards… Americans?

        This is what they do very well out of frustration Morgan: They nominalize or change the definition of things they dislike…my thoughts on this issue:

        Frame of reference: The verb “nominalize” means to change verb or adjective into a noun.

        Sartre (the existentialist) spoke and wrote of the sadistic feelings many people experience when they become frustrated with not being able to control-enough of another person’s mind. While Sartre was referring to the frustrations between intimate couples, I believe the philosophy is actually a universal phenomena among humans in any situation.

        The problem exists somewhere in the “B” Cluster (personality disorders; histrionics, logorreha, narcissism etc).

        In stark contrast to liberals, some philosophers like Anselm of Canterbury, Rene Descartes, and Emmanuel Levinas actually took the time to show an appreciation for discourse; their love for other people, a debate, a person’s individuality, and respect for the uniqueness in others. Descartes even went as far to say (in his ontological arguments) that it is physically-impossible for anyone to agree on everything; his proof that a sense of divinity exists within us all….

        and THAT is why liberals seek to flog anyone who strays from their idolatrous agendas.

          “Obama rehashed a lot of his second term agenda in the speech, calling for more tax hikes on the wealthy to support government programs for the middle class including reducing student loans, free child care, and free community college as well as mandatory minimum wage hikes, paid leave, and equal pay for women.

          “Until they want to walk and not just talk, we’re going to keep offering the American people something better,” Obama said referring to the Republicans, accusing them of trying to cut programs for the less fortunate.

          “A good way to start is stop trying to strip health insurance from millions of Americans and preventive and contraceptive care for millions of women, and stop trying to deport millions of striving young kids who just want to earn their shot at the American dream like the rest of us!” he said.”

    Audit the Fed. That will keep them busy with self delusion. This weather talk is just a very large distraction. They know they are losing the public trust, and are doubling down.

    • Jason Calley says:

      The differences between Democrats and Republicans are almost as fundamental as the difference between a metric adjustable wrench and a standard adjustable wrench.

      The real division in politics is that between the collectivists (Dems, Repubs, Socialists, Fascists, Communists, Monarchists, etc.) and those who believe in natural, individual rights.

      • gofer says:

        43% of democrats think Obama should ignore court orders and do what he thinks is right is more important than balance of power while 81% of Republicans believe the opposite. Therein lies the problem because Obama is always trying to give stuff away and the evil Republicans are stopping him.

        • Jason Calley says:

          81%! Think about that…. Not 100%?!

          I really WANT to like the Republican party (and I even voted that way for a few decades) but I just can’t do it any more. They give the best speeches! They say all the things I want to hear — smaller government, balanced budgets, less intrusion into our personal lives, etc. They SAY all the good stuff. My problem is that once elected they give us massive deficits, TSA, EPA, OSHA, Homeland Security, “Anticrime Bills” that are actually anti-gun owner bills, warrantless phone and email taps, etc. etc.

          Every election they promised me that they would bring back the Old Republic, but once they were in office they did pretty much the same sorts of things that the Dems did. Fool me once, or twice or however many it was — I won;t support them again.

The pace and breadth of it is accelerating too. This is beyond alarming.

  8. gofer says:

    This shows the tyrannical side of the left and is a little scary:

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 26% of Likely U.S. Voters think the president should have the right to ignore federal court rulings if they are standing in the way of actions he feels are important for the country. Sixty percent (60%) disagree and say the president should not have the right to ignore the courts. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    But perhaps more unsettling to supporters of constitutional checks and balances is the finding that 43% of Democrats believe the president should have the right to ignore the courts. Only 35% of voters in President Obama’s party disagree, compared to 81% of Republicans and 67% of voters not affiliated with either major party.

    Fifty-two percent (52%) of all voters believe, generally speaking, that court challenges of actions approved by the president and Congress help protect the rights of U.S. citizens. Thirty percent (30%), however, consider such challenges mostly nuisances that stand in the way of good policy. Eighteen percent (18%) are not sure.

    Thirty-one percent (31%) think it is more important for government to operate efficiently than it is to preserve our system of checks and balances. Nearly twice as many (59%) place more importance on maintaining checks and balances. Eleven percent (11%) are undecided.”

    • stpaulchuck says:

          I noted it several years ago at ChiefIO: Napolitano, Mexican Border & False Flag

          You can also add Napolitano stands by controversial report that names conservatives extremists including war veterans.

          the top House Democrat with oversight of the Department of Homeland Security said in a letter to Ms. Napolitano that he was “dumbfounded” that such a report would be issued.

          “This report appears to raise significant issues involving the privacy and civil liberties of many Americans – including war veterans,” said Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, in his letter sent Tuesday night….

          Mr. Thompson said the report “blurred the line,” and that he is “disappointed and surprised that the department would allow this report to be disseminated” to law enforcement officials nationwide.

          Homeland Security officials have declined to say who wrote report, except that it was a career official and not a political appointee….

          …In her statement Wednesday, Ms. Napolitano defended the report, which says “rightwing extremism” may include groups opposed to abortion and immigration, as merely one among several threat assessments….

          “The document on right-wing extremism sent last week by this department’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis is one in an ongoing series of assessments to provide situational awareness to state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies on the phenomenon and trends of violent radicalization in the United States,” ….

          Ms. Napolitano insisted that the department was not planning on engaging in any form of ideological profiling

    Filmmaker James Cameron Backs Out of Global Warming Debate He Organized
    By Noel Sheppard
    August 23, 2010

    Multi-millionaire filmmaker James Cameron on Sunday backed out of a global warming debate that he asked for and organized. For those that haven’t been following the recent goings on concerning Nobel Laureate Al Gore’s favorite money-making myth, an environmental summit was held this weekend in Aspen, Colorado, called AREDAY, which is short for American Renewable Energy Day.

    Ahead of this conference, Cameron challenged three noted global warming skeptics to a public debate where he was going to personally “call those deniers out into the street at high noon and shoot it out with those boneheads.”

    It’s all been about messaging, as the criminals make up new names, redefine the terms and fully corrupt the data.!
    This nightmare has also been beneficial in funding the “working hypothesis” of AGW to provide paychecks for academic institutions with a reason that won’t cause outrage and the public to go ape shit on them!

    My 1st and primary question is:
    Is there a scientifically detectable and measureable component of AGW?
    ANWER = NO

    2nd Question:
    Is there anyone within the accredited scientific institutions that can detail the conditions and causes of mass glaciation and a return to an inter-glacial condition?

      2nd Question:
      Is there anyone within the accredited scientific institutions that can detail the conditions and causes of Dansgaard-Oeschger oscillations, Bond events and Heinrich events that cause global temps to routinely change 8 °C to 10 °C and even up to 16 °C within a couple decades?
      ANSWER = HELL NO

      This is a really big Mammoth in the Geologic Climate Change room. Then you can add the change from the Wisconsin Ice Age to the Holocene happened in ONE YEAR!!! link

      Until the ClimAstrologists can explain AND provide observational data about the mechanics of these events, they can take their “0.3 °C change is caused by humans” and stuff it back where the sun don’t shine because that is where that conjecture came from.

    This is all about the White House, and remaining democratic village idiots, trying to change the narrative. They are getting their collective asses kicked in the war on terror and they are looking for cover. And they are using AGW as an attempt at cover. But they picked a year when the Midwest and East are getting pummeled by cold and snow. Bad timing I guess. But as I always tell my wife; I have an idiot for a president and he is finding fewer and fewer places he can be taken seriously. What a moron. And he surrounds himself with like minded morons.

    FUNDING
    Obama’s Moneybags: The Top 19 Organizing for Action Donors

    One of the mottos of Organizing for Action, President Obama’s grassroots advocacy group, pretty much says it all: “Our work didn’t stop on election day.” And neither has Obama’s fundraising.

    …. average contribution around $59 split among more than 355,000 Americans…. nearly $21 million this year has been led by 19 individuals…..the 19 individuals…. who form the big-money core of the Obama effort.

    Fred Eychaner, CEO of Newsweb Corp., $500,000

    ….. Eychaner, the CEO of Newsweb Corp., a Chicago-based commercial printing company, sold Murdoch a Chicago television station for $425 million in 2002.

    In 2012, Eychaner gave $3.5 million to Priorities USA (infamous for running an ad basically blaming Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for a woman’s cancer death), nearly $4 million to Majority PAC, $3.75 million to House Majority PAC, and another $750,000 for Women Vote!, according to the Center for Responsive Politics (CRP). He also bundled at least $500,000 for Obama.

    …..Eychaner was appointed by President Obama in 2010 as a General Trustee of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. He is also on the Chicago Joffrey Ballet Board of Directors, which holds Mayor and former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel as Honorary Chairman. …. he has also stayed in Hillary’s [camp], donating more than $25 million to the Clinton Foundation….

    David Shaw, Founder of hedge fund D.E. Shaw & Co., $500,000

    ….D.E. Shaw & Co., …. mathematicians, computer scientists, and other devotees of quantitative analysis who ….monitor the world’s financial markets and squeeze profits out of places most people would never think of looking.”

    Shaw’s success in the years since have allowed him to leave his perch atop Wall Street and conduct research in the field of computational biochemistry and promote Democratic causes. As a top Democrat backer, he and his wife Beth have doled out half a million to OFA, bundled between $200,000 and $500,000 for the Obama 2012 campaign, and hosted fundraisers at his Upper West side home in New York city. He served on the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology for Presidents Clinton (1994) and Obama (2009)…..

    Amy Goldman Fowler, Real Estate Heiress, $250,000

    …. donating at least $1.5 million to Planned Parenthood in 2011 and 2012, … —Fowler has already given $250,000 to Planned Parenthood’s Action Fund for the 2013-2014 cycle—….

    “All things are subject to interpretation. Whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth. ― Friedrich Nietzsche

    Obama in 2015 and NASA in 1975 followed Nietzsche’s advice on the Manipulation of Data & People

    Precise experimental data from 1975 measurements of noble gases in mineral separates of the Allende meteorite (University of Chicago) showed unequivocally that primordial He accompanied only “strange” xenon (Xe-2), not “normal” xenon (Xe-1) in material that formed the meteorite.

    http://www.omatumr.com/Data/1975Data.htm

    Here are the interpretations offered:

    1. University of Chicago claimed super-heavy element fission in the meteorite.

    2. University of Missouri claimed that primordial He and Xe-2 came from the outer layer, and Xe-1 from the iron-rich interior, of the supernova that birthed the solar system.

    3. Rice University claimed that inter-stellar dust grains carried Xe-2 into the solar system.

    4. Harvard University claimed that a nearby supernova injected Xe-2 into an otherwise homogeneous cloud of hydrogen that was forming the solar system.

    . . . “White House Funding Attacks On Skeptics

    This is nothing more than Lysenkoism writ large.

    Lysenkoism is … [a metaphor used to] describe the manipulation or distortion of the scientific process as a way to reach a predetermined conclusion as dictated by an ideological bias, often related to social or political objectives.
