Congress: Save yourselves if grid fails ~ By F. Michael Maloof

Pry pointed out that the federal government, particularly the Department of Defense and the intelligence community, has known about the EMP threat for more than 50 years.

Yet, the EMP threat has only come to the attention of most policymakers and the public relatively recently.

Such a concern only began to come to the public’s attention in unclassified reports in 2004 and 2008 by the congressionally mandated EMP Commission. The panel determined that the secrecy surrounding an EMP event was a greater threat to the nation than revelations of its destructive nature to the U.S. electrical grid system and the life-sustaining critical infrastructures.

Pry said that passage of the CIPA, introduced by Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., would “immediately mobilize thousands of emergency planners and first responders at all levels of government and educated millions of others, about EMP and how to prepare for it.

Writing about events in the past, as in historical accounts, is called History. These are nonfictional stories about what previously happened, and if anything, get their value as a teaching tool. For as we all know, repeating mistakes of the past and expecting different results is called insanity.

Writing about current events is called News. It's weird, but I'd swear that the news we get to deal with is about the insanity in this world because of all the people that didn't pay attention to History, or thought that they could repeat history and get different results.

But, try writing about a future event, and it's called everything from speculation to paranoia. People tend to not take it seriously. And that is the problem here. I've said it before:
When you see this column posted here today, please do not conclude that it is is just more fear-mongering paranoia. This is not posted here because of a paranoid threat of World War III starting tomorrow. There is much more to this column than the reporting on a military threat from...
Is it the threat of an EMP that F. Michael Maloof may seem to be a little obsessed with?  It may seem that way, and it may even seem that I am, too.  However, it is the fact that Congress is ignoring the threat, and refusing to take any action on limiting the results of an EMP, whether natural or caused by man, that is the real obsession. Just sayin'...

Congress: Save yourselves if grid fails
Experts warn EMP event could wipe out 90% of U.S. population
F. Michael Maloof
By F. Michael Maloof

Published: 05/16/2014 at 8:46 PM

From wnd.com


WASHINGTON – The lack of congressional action on critical infrastructure legislation is hampering national preparation for a natural or man-made electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, event that could kill 90 percent of the U.S. population due to starvation, disease and societal collapse, charges an expert on the threat.

Peter Vincent Pry, executive director of the congressional advisory Task Force on National and Homeland Security and director of the U.S. Nuclear Strategy Forum, contends that the failure to pass the Critical Infrastructure Protection Act, or CIPA, is preventing action at the federal, state and local levels to protect the nation from a catastrophic EMP event.

Pry has warned that a natural or nuclear EMP event could black out the national electric grid for months or years and collapse all of the other critical infrastructures essential to sustain a modern society and the lives of 310 million Americans.

The critical infrastructures include communications, transportation, banking, finance, food, water and emergency services.

Pry calls passage of the Critical Infrastructure Protection Act to create a new National Planning Scenario focused on the EMP threat “urgently necessary.

VIDEO: This country is in trouble!

When watching this video, a segment on The O'Reilly Factor called "Watters' World," your first reaction may be shock. Are our schools that bad, that kids can graduate without knowing basic American history, and perhaps still manage to get accepted into college? Really?

But then another thought has occurred to me. In the video, you'll hear Jesse Watters telling O'Reilly that it isn't hard to find these people, because they usually approach him. That could be the smoking gun. Is it plausible to believe that these people being asked the easy questions are just trying to get their 15 seconds of fame on TV? Could they possibly just be acting dumb so that Watters includes them in his clips?

So, either kids are not getting a good education these days, and they really are that clueless in many cases, or, the rest of us are just a bunch of gullible suckers that believe just about anything we see on TV. Either way, this country is in trouble! Just sayin'...

WHO urged not to 'suppress and control' e-cigarettes ~ theguardian.com

Calls for the WHO to resist tough regulations on e-cigarettes come
after a leaked document suggested it saw the device as a 'threat'.

"We are also working with national regulatory bodies to look at regulatory options, as well as toxicology experts, to understand more about the possible impact of e-cigarettes and similar devices on health."

Research published last week by West found e-cigarettes can help improve the success rate of people trying to quit smoking by 60% compared with nicotine patches or gum.

But critics say that not enough is known about the long-term effects of the devices, which deliver nicotine in a vapour.

Greg Gutfeld
In the last few months, I've seen several segments on The Five on Fox News Channel where one of the hosts, Greg Gutfeld, had been ranting about various "authorities" who were trying to regulate e-cigarettes. The video you will see below is one of those moments:

Please note:  To see the following video, you must be logged in to Facebook.



It bothers me that the World Health Organization (WHO) seems to be one of the "authorities" that seems bent on trying to possibly doing harm to a product that could save millions of lives. It is my hope that they take the research discussed in this story very seriously. Greg Gutfeld isn't going to shut up about the benefits of the e-cigarettes, and neither will I. Just sayin'...


WHO urged not to 'suppress and control' e-cigarettes
Thursday 29 May 2014, 02.38 EDT

The Guardian (UK)

Public health specialists in the UK have urged the World Health Organisation not to "control and suppress" e-cigarettes as it prepares to publish global guidelines on the devices.

A letter signed by more than 50 researchers and specialists, including Prof Robert West of University College London, said e-cigarettes had the potential to save millions of lives.

It urged the WHO not to impose regulations on the devices in the same way it does with conventional cigarettes.

The global health adviser is preparing to publish recommendations about e-cigarettes to governments later this year.

The letter, seen by the BBC, said: "These products could be among the most significant health innovations of the 21st century – perhaps saving hundreds of millions of lives. If regulators treat low-risk nicotine products as traditional tobacco products … they are improperly defining them as part of the problem.

"Regulators should avoid support for measures that could have the perverse effect of prolonging cigarette consumption."

Benghazi Was Gun-Running Operation: West ~ By NewsGuy

This is what former Congressman and retired Lt. Col. Allen West (R-FL) had written that is the reason for this blog post:
I learned there are those who are being threatened with their pensions being cut off if they come forth to speak.

And I learned, as I presumed, that there was a covert weapons scheme going on in Libya, Benghazi. We had been supplying radical Islamists with weapons against Libyan President Moammar Gadhafi, effectively supplying the enemy and destabilizing that country. And it seems that there was a CIA weapons buy-back program, the aim of which was to ship the retrieved weapons out of Libya through Turkey, and to the Islamist forces in Syria.

Benghazi and the operations in Libya are shrouded in a fog of lies, deceit, manipulation, threats, intimidation, coercion, abandonment, and worst of all, potentially treason.

No, it was not about a kidnapping scheme, it was about something, as I’ve stated, that will make Iran-Contra look like Romper Room. The web of lies spun is coming apart, and all other committee hearings on this matter should be shut down.

The prime objective of this blog is to bring news and commentary to you that tends to be ignored by the liberal mainstream media. And really, even Fox News has not reported on this.  Today, NewsGuy of The Right Perspective had posted on this column by Allen West. It was a story that I had heard about awhile ago, but I couldn't find sources that would be credible to many people. I would have found this column by Allen West eventually, but I have to give NewsGuy my gratitude for leading me to it sooner than later.

Whether you would ever know it or not, it is what Allen West is talking about in his column that is probably the whole purpose of the Benghazi Select Committee. I believe that Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is very aware of this, and it's why Benghazi is a very big deal that Obama wants to keep hidden.

This blog was written and posted so that you would know that there is something going on, much deeper than many of us have heard about on a regular basis from credible sources.  It will not be a waste of time and resources for the new Benghazi Select Committee.

It is good that Allen West has brought this story forward.  It was courageous.  And, as expected, he received a lot of flak from the detractors.  In his follow-up (see the link below under RELATED STORIES), he wrote the following: 
So to all the liberal progressive socialist detractors and the useful idiots who continue to hang on Obama’s empty words, your comments mean nothing – in fact, y’all sound like the adults in Charlie Brown cartoons.

Truth prevails, regardless of who is willing to accept it – now, or later.
You do not have to believe me, or NewsGuy, or Allen West.  You should, but you don't have to.  You can file this under, "We'll see if this story is true, eventually."  And I'll file it under, "You see? I told you so."  Just sayin'...

Memorial Day, it is a time to remember that freedom isn't free.



It is a time to remember the many that have fallen for our freedom.



I only wanted to raise the awareness that their courage and patriotic duty is remembered during this long holiday weekend. This needs to be a time when we have to think about the reason that some of us have a long weekend to enjoy with our loved ones. It truly must be a time to remember. Just sayin'...

Pelosi Sets Up the Benghazi Circus

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC)
Select Committee chairman Trey Gowdy took the high road in a statement yesterday: "The Republican members of the Benghazi Select Committee welcome our colleagues. ... I respect Mr. Cummings and his work in Congress. I look forward to working with him and the members of the committee toward an investigation and a process worthy of the American people and the four brave Americans who lost their lives in service to our country."

But all indications are the Democrats have no interest whatsoever in getting to the bottom of what happened that deadly night in Benghazi -- not when it could threaten the presidential candidacy of Hillary Clinton, and leave a bad taste in the electorate's mouth about Democrats no matter who runs.

As I had predicted two weeks ago in a post:
So, of course, Nancy Pelosi and other liberals are trying to disparage the Benghazi Select Committee, as the truth will most likely be very damaging to the Democrats in 2014, and Hillary in 2016...
The Democrats will do all they can to keep us from knowing the truth about the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the State Department Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.  They have a lot to lose! And their plan now is to derail the hearings anyway they can.

From the article, here are the U.S. Representatives from the Democrat Party who Nancy Pelosi has appointed to the Benghazi Select Committee:
  • U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings. Known for political theater. Most recently, his tantrum during the IRS contempt hearings when he spoke out of turn and got into a shouting match with Chairman Darryl Issa.
  • U.S. Rep. Adam Smith, who has called the GOP's Benghazi probe a "witch hunt."
  • U.S. Rep Adam Schiff, who has called the Select Committee "a colossal waste of time."
  • U.S. Rep. Linda Sanchez, who has also accused Republicans of wasting time on Benghazi.
  • U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth, an amputee veteran of the Iraq war, who has been similarly dismissive.
Well, as they say, every circus needs a clown!  And it looks like the head clown, Nancy Pelosi, picked from the top of the class from the Pelosi Clown School! In case you had missed it, here is Nancy's top teaching tool on being a clown, and how to disrupt the hearings and make a mockery of Trey Gowdy's serious efforts:

Please note:  To see the following video, you must be logged in to Facebook.


Rep. Trey Gowdy will have two challenges now. He will not only be trying to get through the stonewalling from the Obama administration, but also must be able to deal with the five Democrat Clowns that Pelosi placed on the committee.

However, something tells me that Rep. Gowdy will be up for the job. There should not be any doubt that Pelosi's overt strategy of disruption would have been considered by the Republicans on the Select Committee by now. They will be ready for it.

But the biggest challenge will be dealing with the way the mainstream media covers the Select Committee and what the Democrats say. This means that the New Media will have to make sure that we can keep the news from the Benghazi Select Committee balanced. We must be aware of the many distractions that will try to deflect from THIS story.

With all the scandals that keep coming along, I know, our hands will be full. Just know that the Democrats and their friends in the mainstream media are going to be saying: "Move along, folks, there's nothing to see here.

If the Obama media machine concentrates on any story, it will be the VA Hospital scandal.  Do you know why the liberal media can run with that story without damaging Obama or the Democrats?  It is because they will claim, "It's Bush's fault."  Just sayin'...

Pelosi Sets Up the Benghazi Circus
By Boston Herald (MA)

May 22, 2014 6:55 am

From GOPUSA Fresh Ink

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
The Democrats didn't want hearings on Benghazi -- they called for a boycott and called hearings a "waste of time."

And now, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's appointment of five highly partisan members to the Select Committee who have made their disdain very clear, the Democrats have signaled that not only do they want to make sure these hearings are a waste of time, they will do everything they can to make the hearings a circus.

The Republicans want to know what decisions were made, by whom, that contributed to the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack, and who was responsible for the absurd anti-Islamic video cover story afterward. The evidence so far points high up the chain of command in both the Obama White House and the Clinton State Department.

VIDEO: How can the Veterans possibly trust Obama now?

It is shocking that Obama comes up with a line, in the first time he's spoken to the American people about the VA Hospitals scandal, that he had just heard about the problem! That wasn't all. It's like the WH staff has a form where they just check the boxes that apply, and bingo, Barry has the talking points coming right up on his teleprompter! Just stuff like, "There will be an investigation," "somebody will be held accountable," and, "golly, this is news to me!" Just the normal rhetoric! Rhetoric is far from actually taking action. Just sayin'...

WH ‘picking up the pace’ on executive actions ~ By Justin Sink

The White House has dismissed the select committee investigating the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya, announced earlier this month by Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) as redundant and politically motivated. Republicans have argued that the special panel was necessary after the release of a previously undisclosed email from White House deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes showing involvement in drafting then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice's infamous talking points.

The veteran White House aide did not detail exactly how the president would exert his executive authorities in the coming days, although Obama is expected to take at least two major actions on the environment.

On Wednesday, Obama is slated to designate the largest national monument of his presidency in the mountains of New Mexico. And Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy hinted Monday that the president would personally present new carbon emissions limits on coal-fired power plants. The White House has said that announcement would come in early June.
It looks like our glorious leader President Obama, the Tyrant-in-Chief, is all set to use the House Select Committee investigating the Benghazi terrorists attacks as an excuse to bypass Congress in order to put through extremely radical executive orders!

Dan Pfeiffer is using the Obama White House narrative-of-the-month, claiming that Congress is obsessing over Benghazi with the Select Committee, trying to repeal Obamacare, and along with all the various investigations into the many scandals, is not only wasting time, but keeps Congress from engaging in helping the Economy.

Really? In my opinion, I feel that the new carbon limits on coal plants are not going to do anything to help the economy.  In fact, his policies on climate change and environmental activist inspired mandates will severely damage the economy.  Sorry, Mr. Pfeiffer, no matter what you claim they are doing to waste time, the House sure wouldn't ever be wasting their time by approving any of Obama's agenda!  Just sayin'...

WH ‘picking up the pace’ on executive actions
By Justin Sink

May 20, 2014, 08:14 am

From TheHill.com

The White House will be “picking up the pace on executive actions,” as Congress focuses its efforts on the newly formed select committee investigating Benghazi, senior Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer declared Tuesday.

In an op-ed for The Huffington Post, Pfeiffer argued that congressional Republicans are not interested in engaging on the economy, instead spending time “obsessively trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act” and “ginning up politically motivated investigations.”

Given this dynamic, President Obama has only one option — use every ounce of his authority to unilaterally improve economic security,” Pfeiffer said.

Next week, as congressional Republicans spend their energy on yet another partisan investigation, we'll be picking up the pace on the executive actions to help the economy,” Pfeiffer added.

VA Spends Millions on Conference Rooms / Office Decor While Veterans Die Waiting for Services ~ By Eric Palmer

Information surfacing during questioning on the VA, is a shameful testimony of abuse and mismanagement at the least and negligent homicide at the most.

The testimony and facts already uncovered paint a shameful, outrageous picture of how our Veterans died waiting for much needed treatment and services…. their long waits being hidden under “creative scheduling” techniques … all the while, millions of dollars were being spent on fancy conference rooms, designer decor and offices for VA employees.

VA Secretary Shinseki is in the hot seat. He has much explaining to do about delays at numerous VA hospitals and a long list of serious problems and allegations of falsifying wait times, which were reported by major news organizations.

According to the VA Budget Fast Facts total VA funding (projected 2015) has gone up nearly 68% from 2009. This is astounding considering that the care that these veterans has continually been decreased. And the latest state of affairs shows that the VA has spent nearly $500 million upgrading their offices.
This is just one more big piece of the puzzle. Now, just think about it: If there was a massive amount of corruption, as shown in the videos below, where VA administrators have received bonuses for supposedly getting veterans on the waiting list taken care of, then is it also plausible that the huge increases in spending on office decor could also be tied to corruption? Could there be Obama cronies being rewarded by giving them contracts for all of these expenditures? Why would all of the spending that is being discussed in this story be done when our veterans are dying while they are waiting for help?

These are questions that we must be asked, and our Representatives and Senators must start asking these questions, and then demand and get answers!

Please note:  To see the following videos, you must be logged in to Facebook.



But wait, it gets worse!



Of course, this story that I found on Jan Morgan Media had to be shared with the readers of this blog. For those of you that have read the column, read the related story I mention below, and watch the two videos above, you should now be well armed with the information you can use to convince the "Obama is a Liar Deniers" that their Charlatan-in-Chief is not a savior, but is truly as evil as they come. They may not believe the scandals like Benghazi, the IRS corruption, or even the global climate change lie. But even the mainstream media is beginning to pick up on this story, and that has to be a big concern to the Obama regime!

However, don't count on the mainstream media to go after Obama for what the VA hospitals are doing. They'll call on the President to fire General Eric Shinseki to resign or be fired, and that will probably be extent of their outrage. But for us, the families and friends of veterans that have been the victims of the corruption in the VA hospitals, the outrage will only go off the charts. (No pun intended.)  Just sayin'...

Be Inspired: Student Overcomes Stutter, Gives Awesome Graduation Speech ~ By Robby Soave

As a person who stutters, I could be no more certain that in this room and in this hall are thousands of people who are far more talented at public speaking than I am,” said Mantell in his speech. “At the same time, I could be no more certain that the message I have to share is one that must be heard.

He continued: “Doubt, as has been observed, kills more dreams than failure ever will. Yet if doubt were to be a disease, its cure would be confidence...
Well, he's right, you know. Parker Mantell, a political science major at Indiana University, was able to overcome a "handicap," and was a student speaker at the recent commencement ceremony at the university. Please watch the following video, and then read what I have to say about it:



You see, there was a point in my life when I was not expected to be able to survive without assistance from family, or maybe even the state, as an adult. In today's terms, I may have even been labeled as autistic, or at the very least, ADD. I was very shy, and afraid to talk to people, as I had a speech impediment where I could not pronounce the letter "S" in my speech. I was teased, and bullied, and very small.

It wasn't until I was part way through middle school (called Junior High School in my day) that it was determined that my thyroid gland was not producing the amount of hormones I needed to grow. I was receiving the medication at that time that was needed for me to survive, but once it was discovered and they increased the dose, I began to grow. That was when I was in eighth grade. I was at the bottom of the class in physical fitness testing up until 8th grade, but by the time I was in 9th grade, I was close to the top of the class! But yet, I had to overcome the years of the mental torment that I had gone through.

I had also overheard somebody say, when I was at that young adolescent stage of my life, even though I had started doing much better in school, thanks to several math teachers I had, "he'll never go to college." Surprise! I graduated from college with close to a 3.0 grade average! In fact, I didn't do too bad once I got through my Freshman year. But even then, I still had my very frail self-image to deal with.

All of the years of the spite from my peers that targeted me in my younger years, because of my disabilities, had taken a toll on my self-esteem.  Keep in mind, bullying people was not politically incorrect 40 years ago, and the damage had been done. No kids that bullied me back in my youth were ever sent to the principals office, let alone fined or arrested. I remember a few times, in fact, where I was the one sent to the principals office for fighting back against the bullies! In fact, there were even teachers that said things to me in front of my peers that would now result in losing their jobs!

Keep in mind, the things that happened to me in my younger years happened long before the days of being sent to counseling or therapy, and being put on Ritalin. It was, however, happening in the days of having two parents and two siblings that loved me! I got over the speech impediment and being quite so much height-challenged! I think I grew about seven inches between 8th grade and 10th grade! Some of the bullies no longer had the urge to mess with me, especially when I had gone out for football in 9th grade, and wrestling in 12th grade. Despite not being a much more than a bench warmer in those sports, the kids in the 'hood soon learned that I was a terror in sandlot football games. Wow, was that fun, outrunning those that just a few years ago could run circles around me, and scoring touchdowns about anytime I touched the ball!

All these memories coming to me while I write, inspired by the above video, needed to be written about to express the point of what Parker was talking (to me) about in his commencement speech. As Parker said, "I could be no more certain that the message I have to share is one that must be heard." Is that ever the truth!  There are far more people than were mentioned in his speech, of course, that have gone through all kinds of adversities, and have made it. What I wanted people to know, and be confident of, that many people are handling various "handicaps" and still make the best of their lives. No, please don't ever call those adversities in our lives a "handicap." Handicaps are what liberals help to label as the "victim mentality." Overcoming adversities is what I call the Winner Mentality!

In the mean time, I may not have become an orator, but I have full confidence in dealing with people and writing and many other things that it takes to get through life, without any kind of assistance, like too many people had feared would happen when I was young. Sure, a medication that was adjusted did make a lot of difference as to my physical abilities, but I had to deal with the psychological issues from the mental torment that I had gone through in my younger years, on my own. And I'm not bragging about dealing with it all, but just wanting people to know that what is inside of us, like Parker Mantell's case, is really inside all of us. Just sayin'....

From The Daily Caller

An Indiana University senior gave an inspiring commencement address to fellow graduating students earlier this week that was all the more impressive because of the handicap he had to overcome to deliver the speech.

VIDEO: The perfect candidate to be the Benghazi Special Prosecutor!

Hey, Nancy Pelosi, give it your best shot, cupcake! You can spend every bit of your face time in the press trying to disparage the Benghazi Select Committee hearings, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), and the Republicans, but the only thing you have going for you is your friends on the left in the mainstream media. I know, that is still a big obstacle for those of us trying to get the truth out, but we do it every day.

But Nancy, it is not like it was twenty years ago, when those big three networks - ABC, NBC and CBS - and then along with CNN and MSNBC, had a monopoly on the news being broadcast on television with leftist-slanted manipulation of what the public could find out. And then came Fox News Channel. Rupert Murdoch hired Roger Ailes, and things changed, because people then had a fair and balanced network where the news wasn't all slanted to the agenda of the left-wing Democrats. And then Conservative radio talk shows became very popular, and quickly overtook the slanted PBS radio network, which is funded by government and the left-wing, and only lasted as long as it did, until the Fairness Doctrine ended. And in the new media, Matt Drudge, along with Joseph Farah's WorldNetDaily, became highly visited websites that helped to bring Bill and Hillary Clinton's nefarious antics to light.

Your job was much easier back before the internet, Nancy, and it was just the beginning. Your only weapon now, Nancy, is tying to disparage the enemies. Now, you have something to worry about, Ms. FORMER Speaker of the House. You were probably quite surprised to have Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) finally decided to go with a Select Committee on Benghazi, led by Rep. Trey Gowdy, somebody that will make your head spin!

Judge Jeanine isn't mincing words when explaining her sentiments about what may have happened with the Obama administration's handling of Benghazi terrorist attacks. Nancy Pelosi, you should know that if Judge Jeanine is aware of all of these questions, you can bet that Trey Gowdy is, too. This could be very damaging to Hillary Clinton's chances in 2016, and you know it! As the judge says, though, you would be making a serious mistake in not providing your allotted five representatives to the committee.

And now that I've gotten in my rant, it's time for you to watch the brilliant Opening Statement segment of Justice with Judge Jeanine:

So, after watching the video segment above, who do you think is a better speaker (no pun intended!), able to articulate with obviously more knowledge about the subject (such as the Benghazi terrorist attack)? Who will you most likely believe? Nancy Pelosi or Judge Jeanine Pirro? Just sayin'...

It’s the Climate of Propaganda That Should Worry Americans ~ By Dan Gainor

Remember this? The World Meteorological Organisation was quoted by Greenpeace’s Energydesk: “No single weather episode can prove or disprove global climate change.

OK, if that wasn’t good enough, there’s this, from the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions. It’s run by the liberal Pew Center’s founder and former president Eileen Claussen. They say the same thing, “no single weather event can be linked directly to a long-term driver, such as global warming.

Now none of that matters. Journalists are on the climate beat, so named because it’s the issue they and the liberals intend to beat the American public with till we scream, “Uncle Al.
This should concern us, as the reaction on the MSM networks to the President presenting the National Climate Assessment (NCA) on May 6, 2014 was all about propaganda and hype.  Even former Fox News Correspondent Major Garrett, now with CBS Evening News (go figure!), entered into the fray by saying, "No region of the country will be spared."  And then he later said, "Republicans dismissed this report as an election year ploy to scare voters and pave the way for pollution regulations that sidestep Congress." That was about the only thing mentioned that referred to any objection to the NCA, from anybody. Of course, only Republicans would be mentioned as critics of Obama's climate agenda. Garrett never mentioned why the Republicans would be against the administration sidestepping Congress. That's the way the MSM works as the propaganda arm of the Obama regime.

I was able to find another article which came from the leftist Think Progress website. Their story was, "The Worst TV News Reactions To The National Climate Assessment." And who do you think that they criticized? If you guessed Fox News Network, ding ding ding, you nailed it. And... wait for it... they also went after Pat Robertson of the 700 Club, via a youtube video, coming from Right Wing Watch:



Of course, the left wing media is going to disparage anyone that criticizes the climate assessment that was pushed by Obama, because they can not afford to have anybody disagreeing with the President's agenda. That is what we call propaganda on steroids.

I felt it was necessary to let the readers of this blog know that there really are people out there that know why the Obama agenda is using climate change to make national economic change, which would be to lead America to Socialism.

Charles Krauthammer said this on Fox News Channel:
"All that we're doing is committing economic suicide in the name of do-goodism that won't do an iota of good."
Proving that it isn't just Fox News that is not falling in line with the climate change agenda, S.E. Cupp said this on CNN:
"Surprise, surprise, today President Obama is keeping his liberal elite base happy by trying to scare us with new reports on climate change."
Yes, Dan Gainor hit it out of the park. Americans should have a lot to worry about when it comes to the "climate of propaganda." Americans who don't bow down to the climate change hype are being denigrated by the left in the mainstream media, and that is dangerous. Just sayin'...



It’s the Climate of Propaganda That Should Worry Americans
By Dan Gainor

From theblaze.com

Global Warming.” “Climate change.” “Global weirding.” “Climate disruption.

The terms are unavoidable as news stories that deploy them. The American media love nothing more than claiming weather events are part of some greater pattern – whether they are or not.

With President Barack Obama’s latest climate push, journalists are once more linking every random weather happening they can find and saying, “See!” with a giant I-told-you-so look on their faces.

They aren’t covering the story, they are acting like the bearded lunatic on the street corner holding a sign saying, “The End Is Near!” Instead, they parrot the White House saying: “It is already happening.” It sounds almost like a bad movie trailer.

VIDEO: Obama's big lie to our Veterans!

As Judge Jeanine Pirro does to start her Justice With Jeanine programs on Fox News, I have an Opening Statement in regard to this video.

There are a few simple questions that I want to ask you, the public, who is the ultimate jury when it comes to who will lead the country, whether in Congress, or in the White House. In the video below, I will be showing you evidence of extreme incompetence, and very likely, intentional corruption in a very small portion of our health care system. There are victims, some who have lost their lives. This is all happening in some Veterans Affairs hospitals, at least two that we are now aware of. Keep in mind that our federal government runs the VA hospitals. Keep in mind that we're talking about a very small percent of our population that have served our country and now need medical care. Keep in mind that there are those in the government that have classified citizens that may have right-wing extremist tendencies, which includes former military members, as potential domestic terrorists.

And now, we'll learn in the video evidence presented below, that even the President of the United States of America had promised to make sure that our government would correct the problems that veterans are having in getting the health care that they were promised for serving their country.  As you will learn, it isn't happening as Barack Obama had promised on multiple occasions. And now, keep in mind that the President said you wouldn't lose your doctor, your health care costs would go down, and many other lies that were told when it comes to the Affordable Care Act.

Should it come down to determining that our veterans are not receiving health care as promised, how long will it be before other Americans encounter problems with getting the health care they need in a totally broken system, and who knows who will be the next targets that need to be eliminated?  Those are the questions I want you to consider as you see the video below.  I'm not just sayin'... I'm asking you to take all of these questions and contemplate with your complete concentration and focused deliberation before you vote in the coming elections in 2014 and 2016.
