Democrat Supervisor Doesn’t Know That Arizona Is A Border State

America, meet the Obama voter. Willing to believe anything desite the facts against it.

(Yes, Arizona really is a border state. Go look at a map of the Southwestern United States.)

“If this was Texas, which is a state that is directly on the border with Mexico, and they were calling for a measure like this saying that they had a major issue with undocumented people flooding their borders, I would have to look twice at this. But this is a state that is a ways removed from the border.”

Of course, the Dems will ignore this comment and replay the old news of Rep. Barton’s apology.

“The level of non-disclosure of adverse data we saw was perhaps perfectly acceptable.”

The quote in the title came from Steve McIntyre of Climate Audit. It clearly shows how the AGW alarmist crowd is perfectly willing to unethically manipulte data and information to prove their cause.

No true scientist would ever accept any level of “non-disclosure” for anything. Non-disclosure is simply another way of saying “hiding the truth.”

From the American Thinker:

After Apollo 17 moonwalker Dr. Harrison Schmitt, gave a wonderful presentation on climate policy from a constitutional standpoint, Climate Audit’s Steve McIntyre took the podium to discuss Climategate and the valuable role he played in uncovering the scandal. But after walking us through the Briffa and Mann reconstructions, Mike’s Nature Trick, the conspiratorial emails and other unscrupulous goings on at CRU, Steve stopped quite a bit short of passing judgment on the co-conspirators. In fact, referring to those who have obstructed the truth about the “hockey stick” and thereby climate sensitivity itself, Steve – who admitted he had no problem with governments dictating energy policy — suggested only that their “tricks” be disavowed and “such practices be avoided in the future.”

During the Q&A segment that followed, Bass let us in on something McIntyre told him upon ending his presentation – that the rousing standing ovation from the audience Steve received before his talk began and decidedly less enthusiastic and predominately seated reaction afterwards didn’t go unnoticed.

When questioned why Mann, Jones, and company shouldn’t be thrown in jail, Steve surprised and, no doubt, disappointed many in attendance. He approached CRU’s trickery as “academic misconduct,” stating that in academic circles the level of non-disclosure of adverse data we saw was perhaps perfectly acceptable.

No. What they’ve have done and are doing is completely reprehensible and will only serve to undermine the public’s trust of real science.

Obama’s Leftist Propaganda Video: Inappropriate For Public Schools

At Eagle Bay Elementary School in Farmington, Utah, students were shown a short video called I Pledge. The video is essentially a conglomeration of Barack Obama making a plea to school children and then celebrities “pledging” certain things. The problem is that it is a leftist-leaning propaganda video and has no place in an elementary school or any public school at all.

From Lisa Schencker of the Salt Lake Tribune:

[P]ledges, such as “to never give anyone the finger when I’m driving again,” “to sell my obnoxious car and buy a hybrid” and to advance stem cell research cross the line, some say.

But it gets even worse than that.

Chris Williams, Davis School District spokesman, said school principal Ofelia Wade and school PTA leaders decided to show the video as part of an assembly about the school’s theme for the year, service. He said the PTA board chose the video and Wade did not see it before it was shown in the assembly.

“It got to a point where she turned to her assistant and said, ‘Oops, I wish I would have seen this before. I don’t think I would have shown it,’ ” Williams said. He said Wade could see how some adults might find the video political.

Like maybe here:

Gayle Ruzicka, president of conservative Utah Eagle Forum, said the video was blatantly political. She said other offensive pledges included, “I pledge to be of service to Barack Obama,” “I pledge allegiance to the funk, to the united funk of funkadelica,” and pledges to not use plastic grocery bags and not flush the toilet after urinating.

“Pledge to be of service to Barack Obama?” The last time someone made a pledge to a national leader like that, the Nazis marched all over Europe. Yes, officers in the German military back then were required to make a pledge to Adolph Hitler.

But even further:

Ruzicka said she contacted local media about the video after receiving complaints from several parents. Ruzicka said she worried the video’s messages would confuse children whose parents might choose to use plastic bags when shopping or who want their children to flush the toilet after every use. Also she said she didn’t like a pledge “to be of service to Barack Obama” as he is here to serve Americans, not the other way around.

That’s right. When the Democrats try to hide behind the argument that they “won” the election, they don’t understand that what they won was the right to represent the American people, not to rule them.

Anybody here still want Obama addressing school children on September 8, 2009?

Holy War In Virginia: Islamic School Wants To Expand

Right in our backyard in Fairfax County. A Saudi-owned Islamic school is trying to expand its campus and a group of local residents are trying to stop it.

From Fox News:

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors held a public hearing Monday night to consider a proposal to expand the campus of the Islamic Saudi Academy, a Saudi-owned college preparatory school.

Critics of the plan point to former students of the school who have been convicted in a plot to assassinate former President Bush, and more recently, arrested for trying to board an airplane with a seven-inch kitchen knife.

That is the end result of Wahabbism: young terrorists. And this is a Wahabbi school.

Don’t forget to brush up on terrorist training camps right here in America.

But, there are other issues here as well:

“We’re opposed to the operation of the Islamic Saudi Academy because it teaches and practices Shariah law,” said James Lafferty, chairman of the Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force (VAST).

Lafferty said his organization is a coalition with roughly 10 other groups that oppose the land-use expansion. By teaching Shariah law, Lafferty says, the school replaces the U.S. Constitution with a “very backward and barbaric” rule of law.

“Shariah law advocates rights via gender and religion,” Lafferty told FOXNews.com. “They allocate rights by gender and religion. If you are a male who is Islamic, you have rights. If you’re not, you have no rights.”

That alone is reason enough for this school to lose any accreditation at the very least.

But, I wonder how the government would respond if this were a Catholic School, or a Protestant Christian Academy, or a Jewish School. Would there even have been a debate? Or would the government simply have told the school “No” and be done with it?

Obama Takes Away Students’ Scholarships; Parents Ask ‘Why?’

Far from being a courageous leader, in many instances, Barack Obama has shown himself to be a coward and his administration just as cowardly.

Take for example the D.C. Scholarship Program which allows low-income students, who would otherwise have to attend woefully failing public schools that the D.C. School Board absolutely refuses to fix, to attend private schools that improve their chances for making a better life for themselves. Obama stopped this program even though he chose to use his own upper-class privilege to send his daughters to the prestigeous and private Sidwell Friends.

Reason has the story and video about this:

The program is wildly popular with parents and children—there are four applicants for every available slot—and a recent Department of Education study found that participants do significantly better than their public school peers. Indeed, after three years in private schools, students who entered the program at its inception were 19 months ahead in reading of applicants unlucky enough to still be trapped in D.C.’s public schools.

But, Obama and other Democrats killed the scholarships despite successes of the program:

Yet working with congressional Democrats and despite his pledge to put politics and ideology aside in education, the Obama administration has effectively killed the program through a backdoor legislative move. “[Education] Secretary [Arne] Duncan will use only one test in what ideas to support with your precious tax dollars,” says the president. “It’s not whether it’s liberal or conservative, but whether it works.”

And now the parents want to know why. I can guarantee you that Obama will never have the courage or integrity to answer that question. In his world it is okay for him to send his own children to a private school to get a superior education, but others must have their children recieve an abysmally lower quality education at the hands of failing public schools.

A mother asks of Obama:

“We voted for you, we walked, we went to the parade, we stood freezing. Why?…Can you get this tape over to Obama and have him answer our questions? Why, sir, why?”

Obama will never show any real courage until he looks that mother and her daughter in the eyes and answers their questions directly.

Democrats Terrified Of Scientific Debate Over Global Warming Issues

Well, so much for “diversity” and trying to bring multiple points of view to the issues. And so much for any post-partisanship the Dems claimed would be their hallmark after the 2006 and 2008 elections. It is all straight-line partisanship now.

It all went out the window when the Dems chose ideology over science and refused to allowed an Anthroprogenic Global Warming (AGW) skeptic to testify before Congress concurrent with Al Gore. The UK’s Lord Christopher Monckton had been invited to testify before Congress at the same time as former VP Al Gore, but when the Dems learned that Lord Monckton was an AGW skeptic and was prepared to offer evidence that Al Gore and other Global Warming alramists were wrong in their analysis of climate change, they refused to allow him to testify.

What are the Dems afraid of? That a true scientific debate would make Al Gore look like a fool? If they are so convinced that Al Gore is right, wouldn’t they welcome such a public debate to further prove it? Why hide from such a forum?

From Climate Depot:

Monckton told Climate Depot that the Democrats rescinded his scheduled joint appearance at the House Energy and Commerce hearing on Friday. Monckton said he was informed that he would not be allowed to testify alongside Gore when his plane landed from England Thursday afternoon.

“The House Democrats don’t want Gore humiliated, so they slammed the door of the Capitol in my face,” Monckton told Climate Depot in an exclusive interview. “They are cowards.”

According to Monckton, Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas), Ranking Member on the Energy & Commerce Committee, had invited him to go head to head with Gore and testify at the hearing on Capitol Hill Friday. But Monckton now says that when his airplane from London landed in the U.S. on Thursday, he was informed that the former Vice-President had “chickened out” and there would be no joint appearance.

Why would Al Gore be afraid of going head-to-head with anybody? Maybe because he has been found to be mistaken about a great many things:

35 Inconvenient Truths; The Errors In Al Gore’s Movie
Christopher Monckton
October 18, 2007

For example: Al Gore’s hysterical claim after Hurricane Katrina that global warming would make subsequent hurricane seasons even worse. The truth is that each hurricane season since 2005 has been much less intense.

Or another example: Gore hysterically claims that severe tornadoes are becoming more frequent. But, information gathered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) since 1950 shows a downward trend of severe tornadoes, not upward and Gore claims:

12

Apparently, the Dems don’t have the stomach to actually look through all the evidence and only want to allow such information that would further their own political agenda rather than actually provide good, complete information to the people. And they also don’t have the stomach to see Al Gore ripped to pieces for pushing junk science instead of real science.

It is embarrassing that the Dems refused to allow this debate. It clearly shows exactly how scared they are that the truth about climate change will actually come out and expose AGW as a huge hoax.

Global Warming Reality Check: The Predictions Are Not Coming True

More and more evidence mounts that the idea of man-made global warming is nothing more than hype for the sake of hype. Not only that, but there are political implications here where governments (particularly those controlled by leftist socialists) are using the fear-mongering angle of the issue as an excuse for grabbing more power.

Writing for the Houston Chronicle, Robert L. Bradley shines some light on the issue and looks at the temperature trends of the past 100 years, the prediciations that pseudo-scientists have made concerning global warming and how those predictions fared against reality.

From his column:

The new century has cooled the case for climate alarmism. Global warming has stalled — not accelerated as expected. Greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere have increased, but temperatures have been flat for the last eight years and have slightly fallen since 1998’s El Nino-driven temperature spike.

If the cool-off continues until 2015, as could be the case according to a study published in Nature magazine, we will have had a see-saw of global warming (1900-45), global cooling (1945-75), global warming (1975-98), and flatness (1998-2015).

Where does all of this leave us coming out of the Little Ice Age that ended in the mid-18th century — and after a century of greenhouse gas buildup in the atmosphere? Today’s temperature is about 1 degree Fahrenheit warmer, and in a naturally warmer climate cycle. Compare this to Al Gore’s scary talk about an 11-degree man-made temperature rise this century under business as usual.

I remember the predictions from the 1980’s that said Canada and Russia would be the world’s leading food producers by now and the mid-West of the North American continent would be a desert. Instead, we are having record cold temperatures, record snow falls and Artic sea-ice now extends out further than it did in 1979.

More:

Of course the climate is changing — always has and always will — and there may very well be a distinct human influence on climate. Carbon dioxide is a warming agent, as are the other greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere from human activities. But the good news is that so far the observed climate sensitivity to greenhouse gases is much less than what some climate models predict.

The recent temperature reversal comes on top of falsified climate mini-scares. One headline-grabber was that ocean circulation patterns disrupted by global warming would freeze over North America and Western Europe. “False alarm,” Science magazine would later declare to little fanfare.

Hurricane Katrina was featured in Al Gore’s book and movie, An Inconvenient Truth, as if man, not nature, were to blame. But subsequent research has painted a very mixed picture about hurricanes in a warmer world. Most research predicts fewer tropical storms will develop, and changed wind patterns might cancel out the effect of warmer waters on hurricane strength. There is more agreement that extra-tropical storms are lessened from warming because of a diminished temperature gradient between the poles.

That’s right. Cold air from the arctic below and warm air from the tropics above. When they meet, they cause storms. The greater the temperature difference between the two, the more violent the storms. The National Oceanic & Atomospheric Administration (NOAA) actually tracked the number of tornadoes in the American mid-West during the past fifty years and found that when the temperature differential was greater (i.e. a cooler arctic region), more tornadoes formed. This runs counter to the global warming theory that warmer weather leads to more storms. The scientific data suggests that a warmer climate means fewer and less severe storms.

Bradley goes on:

Gore’s scenario about a 20-foot sea-level rise in man’s future has also not sat well with science. The modest sea-level rise of recent decades — continuing a trend of the past centuries for reasons that are not well understood — is expected to continue. While Greenland is losing ice, Antarctica is gaining ice. Melting Arctic sea ice, meanwhile, does not affect sea level — nor does the growth of sea ice in the southern ocean — for the same reason that melting ice cubes do not cause a drink to spill. The sea-level debate concerns inches, not feet, for future decades and even centuries.

Rememeber the claims that barrier islands such as the Outer Banks of North Carolina would be underwater by now? Well, the barrier islands are still there.

Evidence continues to mount that global warming alrmists have pulled a huge multi-billion dollar hoax. That money could have been better spent elsewhere.

Climate-Change Alarmism Runs Into A Reality Check

Both The Remote Sensing Systems Of Santa Rosa And University Of Alabama (Huntsville) Dataset Show Temperature Going Down

rss-december-2008uah-december-2008

See the two above graphs? They both show that the earth has been in a cyclical cooling trend for the past several years. Although no one can accurately predict what the trends will be for the years to come, both of the data representations show that all of the hype about the world coming to an end because of man-made “greenhouse” gases is nothing more than … well … a bunch of hype.

Greenhouse gas theory holds that as greenhouse gas emissions increase, global temperatures go up. Since 2000, greenhouse gas emissions have indeed gone up thanks to China and India, but as the data shows, temperatures have gone down. The theory has failed its own major test.

Also note the UAH graph has detail explanations with regards to certain outlier events (the eruption of Mount Pinatubo and the cycling of El Nino) in addition to a fourth-order polynomial fit to show what the trends are. No global warming alarmist would ever mention such natural causes nor such contrary evidence in any of their arguments.

SECOND Indiana Planned Parenthood Hides Rape Of 13-Year-Old

Finding it once may lead some to suspect that an event recorded at Planned Parenthood in Bloomington, Indiana during which a staffer counseled a “13-year-old” girl to hide the fact that she was a victim of statutory rape was nothing more than a isolated incident meriting only the firing of the staffer involved.

But finding it again at a separate clinic in a separate video but with astonishingly similar solutions to the problem the “13-year-old” girl is facing means that it is more than just an isolated incident and may very well be policy taught to Planned Parenthood staffers, not just in Indiana but nationwide.

If nothing else, it is certainly worthy of investigation to see just how many laws Planned Parenthood is willing to break in order to get an abortion done and how many rapists and child molesters that Planned Parenthood wants to see let go. Remember that Planned Parenthood makes money everytime they get to kill an unborn child.

Watch this video of yet another Planned Parenthood counselor trying to hide a statutory rape and coaching the girl on how to get an abortion without her parents’ knowledge. This video was recorded in Indianapolis, Indiana on the same day as the video recorded in Bloomington.

This is your tax dollars at work. Planned Parenthood gets money from the Federal Government and uses it to ensure that rapists and child molesters get away without having to face any consequences for their crimes. What is worse, the rapists and molesters are free to stike again, all courtesy of the money that the government confiscates from your paycheck.

Dennis Prager: Minorities Should Express Shame, Not Only Pride

Let’s start off with Dennis Prager’s first few paragraphs:

Gay Pride. Jewish Pride. Black pride. Hispanic Pride.

Multiculturalism.

Ethnic pride. Minority rights vs. tyranny of the majority.

That’s right. You can’t turn anywhere these days without seeing something about celebrating any one of these issues. But what you don’t see is any celebration of white Christian heterosexual males.

In fact, usually, the only time you ever hear about white Christian heterosexual males is when some activist group has something bad to say about them or is criticizing them for some imagined transgression.

Why does one almost never hear expressions of group shame from members of any American group other than white Christians (specifically, white Christian male heterosexuals)? Are the only evildoers in America white male heterosexual Christians? Is there something inherently wrong about members of minorities expressing anything but group pride? Are there no minority sins worthy of shame? The latter is in fact the argument advanced by many intellectuals concerning black racism, for example. For a generation, college students have been taught that it is impossible for blacks to be racist because only the racial group in power, i.e. whites, can express racism.

Of course, that is nonsense. A black can be a racist just as a white can be one. A minority race might not have the power to implement racist national policies but that hardly means that no minority group, or any individual, can be a racist.

Yes, it is nonsense. Rev. Jeremiah Wright is a prime example of a black racist. So are Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan and several recent leaders of the NAACP.

From Old Media, we are bombarded with ideas that only whites can be racist or prejudicial. Reality shows otherwise. For example, the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report shows clearly that most inter-racial crimes are black on white crimes. Further, it also shows that blacks are more likely to be victims of crimes committed by other blacks than by whites. And yet, only the white on black crime ever makes the news.

And gay pride? Where is the pride in being the major group vector for HIV infections? I never hear any gay leaders expressing regret that the homosexual community is still leading the spread of AIDS. Or how about terrorizing a little old lady in California? Where is the pride in that?

Prager has more examples of a serious skew in pride vs. shame:

The relative absence of expressions of shame in the Muslim world over the atrocities committed in Islams name is an example of the above. The labeling of blacks who express shame over disproportionate rates of violent crime and out-of-wedlock births in the black community as Uncle Toms is another. The absence of any expression of shame in the gay community over the current blacklisting — and attempts to economically destroy — anyone who donated to the California proposition defining marriage as between a man and a woman is another example.

This column is very thought provoking on many levels. Read it and then ask yourself, “Would I be proud if my ethnic/social group engaged in such shameful behavior?”

Prager’s parting shot:

Expressing group shame when morally necessary is not airing dirty linen or giving solace to ones ideological enemies. It is, rather, one of the highest expressions of moral development. And it is therefore universally applicable. Being a minority doesnt exempt its members from moral responsibility. It will be a great day for America and the world when minorities begin to express shame as well as pride. In fact, there is real pride in expressing shame. Minorities should give it a try.

Planned Parenthood Caught On Video Covering Up The Rape Of A 13-Year-Old

If there was any question about how dishonorable, dishonest and downright evil Planned Parenthood is, all doubts have been erased thanks to a video released by LiveActionFilms.org. The video was taken as part of an undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood in Indiana.

In the video, you will see and hear a Planned Parenthood nurse coach a 13-year-old girl on how to cover-up her own abuse and then give her instructions on how the girl’s 31-year-old “boyfriend” can take her across state lines without parental knowledge or consent to have an abortion done in Illinois.

Old Media has shown no interest in covering stories like this despite the grave concerns such stories would cause any parent.

You may access the video on-line here:

Planned Parenthood Conceals Abuse Of 13-Year-Old

This leads to many questions that I posed in an earlier post. What if that girl had been taken to Illinois by her “boyfriend” without the parent’s knowledge and something had gone wrong with the procedure? Who gets held responsible? Who would the parent’s hold accountable for whatever happens to their daughter?

Think it can’t happen? Check out this video too:

22-Year-Old Dies In Abortion Clinic

Planned Parenthood clearly doesn’t give a damn about the parents or the fact that they are letting a rapist escape justice. The only thing they care about is killing another unborn child and if it can be done without the knowledge or consent of the girl’s parents, then that’s just bonus for them.

These are the reasons why we need to have parental notification laws and why we need to have abortionists give full disclosure to facilitate informed consent of the procedure. As things stand right now, Planned Parenthood can give a rapist a “get out of jail free” card which means more rapes in the future. And abortionists can get away scott free whenever they kill a young woman which means more deaths in the future.

Can You Pass The American Civics Quiz?

I scored a 93.94%. I missed two questions, one about Roe v. Wade and one about policy to stimulate a sagging economy. But, that means I got thirty-one questions right, which is apparently better than most Americans who took this test and scored and average of 49% and most college educators who scored 55%.

Here are some other results from the Intercollegiate Studies Institute

Seventy-one percent of Americans fail the test, with an overall average score of 49%.

  • Liberals score 49%; conservatives score 48%. Republicans score 52%; Democrats score 45%.
  • Fewer than half of all Americans can name all three branches of government, a minimal requirement for understanding America’s constitutional system.

ISI examined whether other factors add to or subtract from civic literacy and how they compare with the impact of college. The survey revealed that in today’s technological age, all else remaining equal, a person’s test score drops in proportion to the time he or she spends using certain types of passive electronic media. Talking on the phone, watching owned or rented movies, and monitoring TV news broadcasts and documentaries diminish a respondent’s civic literacy.

In contrast to these negative influences, the civic knowledge gained from the inexpensive combination of engaging in frequent conversations about public affairs, reading about current events and history, and participating in more involved civic activities is greater than the gain from an expensive bachelor’s degree alone.

One of the ways to remain engaged in a frequent conversations about public affairs, current events and history is to maintain a blog. It helped me a great deal in passing this quiz.

You can take the quiz on-line at the following website. There is no need to register or give any personal information. Just answer the 33 questions as best you can and see where you stand.

Civics Quiz
Intercollegiate Studies Institute American Civil Literacy Program

And here are my final thoughts on this:

Reform needs to start in elementary school and middle school. I and my classmates knew what the Bill Of Rights was back in the fourth grade. We also knew that our government was tri-lateral and our legislature was bi-cameral. By the eighth grade, we could recite the Preamble (Thank you School House Rock!) and we knew how many Senators came from each state and how the proportion of Representatives was determined. We learned all of this before we took a complete Civics class in the 9th grade.

Why the schools stopped teaching these things is beyond comprehension.

But what we need more than anything else is parents who care about what their children are being taught. That means parents who will take an active role in their children’s education and be willing to stand up to the teachers and administrators in their public schools. Anything else will be doomed to failure.

If you think you need to be better informed about our Government and how it is supposed to work, a good place to start is to read the Constitution of the United States of America. You can access it on-line here:

School Clams Up On ‘Gay’ Pledge Cards Given To Kindergartners

Here is the latest effort made by gays and lesbians to gain access to our children. A kindergarten teacher, yes, a kindergarten teacher handed out pledge cards to her students and had them put signatures on them. What were the cards? Look here:

From Fox News:

During a celebration of National Ally Week, Tara Miller, a teacher at the Faith Ringgold School of Arts and Science in Hayward, Calif., passed out cards produced by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network to her class of kindergartners.

The cards asked signers to be “an ally” and to pledge to “not use anti-LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) language or slurs; intervene, when I feel I can, in situations where others are using anti-LGBT language or harassing other students and actively support safer schools efforts.”

The school has acknowledged that the exercise was not appropriate for kindergartners.

Parent Adela Voelker, who declined to be interviewed in depth for this report, said she was furious when she found her child’s signature on one of the cards. She said she contacted a non-profit legal defense organization specializing in parents’ rights.

Meanwhile, a school board member, Jeff Cook, says some type of action should be taken.

“We have a general rule that all instruction should be age appropriate, and this clearly was not,” said Cook, who has served on the school board for five years.

But it is looking like the libs on the school board are going to try and brush this whole thing under the rug:

Asked last week if the district planned to take action against Miller, Joyner said she would have to look into the incident. On Thursday she told FOXNews.com that she did not have an answer for the question and that she would no longer be doing any media interviews.

Gays and lesbians have been trying for years to undermine parental rights in the United States and they are becoming more and more blatent about it. As parents, we have the right (and duty) to say what is appropriate or inappropriate for our children, but the gay and lesbian politcal machine has been working overtime to undermine that right and make leftist teachers the final arbiter in such lessons.
