Good versus Evil. What is really happening today in the USA


The great divide between Conservative and Liberal in this country is approaching the divide between the pre-Civil War North and South in its vehemence and vitriol.  I intend to look at the issues and the thinking behind the two sides as I go forward after my much-needed sabbatical.


The Hubbell Standard
Hillary Clinton knows all about sacking U.S. Attorneys.


Wednesday, March 14, 2007 12:01 a.m. EDT

Congressional Democrats are in full cry over the news this week that the Administration's decision to fire eight U.S. Attorneys originated from--gasp--the White House. Senator Hillary Clinton joined the fun yesterday, blaming President Bush for "the politicization of our prosecutorial system." Oh, my.

As it happens, Mrs. Clinton is just the Senator to walk point on this issue of dismissing U.S. attorneys because she has direct personal experience. In any Congressional probe of the matter, we'd suggest she call herself as the first witness--and bring along Webster Hubbell as her chief counsel.

As everyone once knew but has tried to forget, Mr. Hubbell was a former partner of Mrs. Clinton at the Rose Law Firm in Little Rock who later went to jail for mail fraud and tax evasion. He was also Bill and Hillary Clinton's choice as Associate Attorney General in the Justice Department when Janet Reno, his nominal superior, simultaneously fired all 93 U.S. Attorneys in March 1993. Ms. Reno--or Mr. Hubbell--gave them 10 days to move out of their offices.

At the time, President Clinton presented the move as something perfectly ordinary: "All those people are routinely replaced," he told reporters, "and I have not done anything differently." In fact, the dismissals were unprecedented: Previous Presidents, including Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter, had both retained holdovers from the previous Administration and only replaced them gradually as their tenures expired. This allowed continuity of leadership within the U.S. Attorney offices during the transition.

Equally extraordinary were the politics at play in the firings. At the time, Jay Stephens, then U.S. Attorney in the District of Columbia, was investigating then Ways and Means Chairman Dan Rostenkowski, and was "within 30 days" of making a decision on an indictment. Mr. Rostenkowski, who was shepherding the Clinton's economic program through Congress, eventually went to jail on mail fraud charges and was later pardoned by Mr. Clinton.

Also at the time, allegations concerning some of the Clintons' Whitewater dealings were coming to a head. By dismissing all 93 U.S. Attorneys at once, the Clintons conveniently cleared the decks to appoint "Friend of Bill" Paula Casey as the U.S. Attorney for Little Rock. Ms. Casey never did bring any big Whitewater indictments, and she rejected information from another FOB, David Hale, on the business practices of the Arkansas elite including Mr. Clinton. When it comes to "politicizing" Justice, in short, the Bush White House is full of amateurs compared to the Clintons.

The ridiculour furor over the firing of 8 U.S. Attorneys by the same party that sat and watched Bill Clinton fire all 93 in one fell swoop is an example of the hypocrisy and evil intentions of the Democrats in general and certainly the liberal wing in particular.  I've been silent and absorbed much of this evil for awhile and now it is time to begin pointing a few things out.

Liberals in particular are strong on the following points:

Politics

They think that Congress should be allowed to preempt powers that have been granted by the Constitution to the President simply because the President is a Republican.

They think that running away from and pandering to radical murderous wretches like the Islamofascists in Iran, Iraq, Syria and so on is in any way at all a solution.

Some of them believe that the attacks of 9/11 were a government conspiracy!  Bad enough when idiots like Rosie O'Donnell spout such nonsense...

They think that conversations between the President and his advisors should be snooped into by Congress.   Barack Obama, for one, showed his idiotic side by claiming to be a Constitutional scholar and then attacking the President for having "no respect for the Constitution" while, at the same time, joining Demwitch Nancy Pelosi and others in attempting to subvert Constitutionally given Presidential powers by taking away his post as Commander-in-Chief.

Socially

John Conyers has presented a bill that would make criticism of homosexuality a "hate crime.!"  Let's see, the First Amendment, does it still exist?  How many Democrats would be in prison if speaking against the President of the United States was made a "hate crime?"  How can any responsible politician even consider such a bill?  But then I supposed guys like Conyers are not in the least bit responsible.  

Scientifically


They think that Global Warming is manmade and is a terrible problem.  In fact, they are using the words of James Imhofe, a man well-qualified to speak on the subject, in a fund-raising scheme now, trying to scare the uninformed electorate with phony "science" and scare tactics that have no place outside of the Hollywood script vaults.  (See below)

They believe almost to a man in the hypothesis of Evolution.  I spent about a year debating on this subject but I can tell you right now you still cannot find one scientist who can confidently point to a way life could have formed from non-life and without that, the whole Evolution cart finds itself without a horse.

Why???


The foundation of the Progressive (liberal) philosophy is that there is no need for God and no responsibility to God for man.    Liberals run from the idea of right and wrong based upon absolutes.  Evolution is an attempt to take God out of the equation.  Abortion is an affront to sanctity of life, but to the Progressive life is simply a meaningless accident in a meaningless and random Universe.  As a believer in God, I see the philosophy of the Progressives as ungodly and therefore evil.

By the way, about Senator Imhofe:

"Climate Change Update
Senate Floor Statement by
U.S. Sen. James M. Inhofe(R-Okla)

January 4, 2005

As I said on the Senate floor on July 28, 2003, "much of the debate over global warming is predicated on fear, rather than science." I called the threat of catastrophic global warming the "greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people," a statement that, to put it mildly, was not viewed kindly by environmental extremists and their elitist organizations. I also pointed out, in a lengthy committee report, that those same environmental extremists exploit the issue for fundraising purposes, raking in millions of dollars, even using federal taxpayer dollars to finance their campaigns.

For these groups, the issue of catastrophic global warming is not just a favored fundraising tool. In truth, it's more fundamental than that. Put simply, man-induced global warming is an article of religious faith. Therefore contending that its central tenets are flawed is, to them, heresy of the most despicable kind. Furthermore, scientists who challenge its tenets are attacked, sometimes personally, for blindly ignoring the so-called "scientific consensus." But that's not all: because of their skeptical views, they are contemptuously dismissed for being "out of the mainstream." This is, it seems to me, highly ironic: aren't scientists supposed to be non-conforming and question consensus? Nevertheless, it's not hard to read between the lines: "skeptic" and "out of the mainstream" are thinly veiled code phrases, meaning anyone who doubts alarmist orthodoxy is, in short, a quack.

I have insisted all along that the climate change debate should be based on fundamental principles of science, not religion. Ultimately, I hope, it will be decided by hard facts and data-and by serious scientists committed to the principles of sound science. Instead of censoring skeptical viewpoints, as my alarmist friends favor, these scientists must be heard, and I will do my part to make sure that they are heard."

More about these things later.  Consider this a mere shot across the bow....

The Great Global Warming Swindle

Global Warming is a swindle, a farce, a ridiculous assertion made by the more nefarious of politicians in an attempt to sway the ignorant. This program puts Al Gore and his tree-hugging ilk in their deserved place of ridicule. No, ridicule is far too mild a word. For, if Gore has any measure of the intelligence he claims to possess, then he knows that what he is promoting is untrue. This makes him and his cohorts very close to criminal in that they are contributing to the deaths of so many people around the globe. First, watch the video!

Watch and see

The temperature of the earth is cyclical and the cycles are primarily relative to the cloud cover, which is dependent upon the amount of Cosmic radiation, which is changed by the amount of Solar Wind being produced by the Sun. Big surprise, the Sun is responsible, in the end, for both global cooling and global warming.

CO2 is a very small part of greenhouse gases. CO2 is produced primarily by oceans, and volcanoes, and animals, and rotting vegetation, not people. Furthermore, ice core samples show us that CO2 rises after temperatures rise. Yes, greenhouse gases do not produce Global Warming but rather GW produce rises in greenhouse gas levels because the ocean gets warmer and then produces more CO2 during those times when the Earth cycles towards warmer temperatures. Al Gore's famous ice cores actually show that CO2 lags behind rises and dips in the temperature of the earth, often by about 800 years!!!!

Actually, Gore and the Globals are doing a huge disservice to humanity. The farce of Global Warming serves to kill off millions of black African citizens (and other victims of other races in undeveloped countries elsewhere) each year as they must struggle against the GW Nazi Machine in an effort to join the modern world. Third World countries need to use their coal and oil reserves to join industrial society, their rare earths and gems must be mined to provide more wealth. Otherwise, one third of mankind will continue to live without electricity and fall prey to unnecessary diseases and short-and-hard lives.

I believe that anti-capitalists and anti-Americans and pro-communists have joined in with the radical tree huggers who believe that the life of a mosquito is more important than the life of a human to promote this lie-wrapped-in-pseudo-scientific-language known as Global Warming.

Thanks to Hawkeye for pointing this out and the BBC for producing a program well worth watching. Thanks to the director for bringing it to youtube. Hurry and watch it before it gets yanked off of the internet.

Why am I not blogging??

I do have one thing to say to one particular commenter:

I hope to God, Creeper, that you didn't take and pass a college-level course in logic. Simple English makes no dent in your logic so it seems that there is no way to penetrate your very set mind. One cannot reason with someone who WILL NOT reason.

I intended to post about ice cores and so on at a later date. Work issues have tied me up much longer than usual and I have had to take a longer break than usual from blogging. But, Creeper, I have to confess I cannot fathom what to do with you. You live on another planet, intellectually, so far as I can see. Maybe they really do have a man-made global warming problem on that one...?

People, I have only said that the recorded history of mankind shows that there are cyclical fluctuations in the average temperature of the earth. I have not called upon speculations of ages that are supposed to have happened before the time of Noah's Flood, nor do I believe that the earth has a record of such ages. I have made this abundantly clear, so for all of you who cannot comprehend this, kindly ask yourself whether it is because you fail due to a lack of intellectual capacity or because of some kind of idealogical mindset that hinders your ability to think clearly in certain areas. I am suspecting that column "B" is the answer for those who fit this description since those commenters have used vocabulary usually associated with fairly learned individuals.

Commenters may have been chasing their tails and attacking this particular straw man because they know what I posted is supported by evidence and cannot be refuted. In any event, their failure to bring in evidences to the contrary means that my point of view has carried the day.

GLOBAL WARMING IS A CYCLICAL PHENOMENON THAT WE CAN AND WILL NOT STOP. Many would question whether we would be wise to try. There are advantages to a bit of warming in many areas of the planet. No matter, when warming occurs then events are triggered that begin a cooling cycle and the whole process simply goes on. We might as well decide to put an end to the tides.

I DON'T CARE IF AL GORE WINS THE NOBEL PRIZE, EITHER! Once Yassar Arafat won it, the Prize became a joke. Yes, I know the "I invented the internet" and "I was the inspiration for Love Story" are mountains made out of factual molehills. I just happen to think they are funny because they do tend to represent the man. Gore is determined to be bigger than he is and more important than he is, if you know what I mean. There is one thing that is really MASSIVE about the man, though, and that is his CARBON FOOTPRINT!!!!!!!!!

HAHAHAHAHA~ Lobo summed it up nicely:

"1. I can't wait for your response on Gore's Oscar.

Will mine suffice?

I'm just wondering if you saw an Inconvenient Truth?

I haven't. Have you seen the new version?

Last night, Al Gore’s global-warming documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, collected an Oscar for best documentary feature, but the Tennessee Center for Policy Research has found that Gore deserves a gold statue for hypocrisy.

Gore’s mansion, located in the posh Belle Meade area of Nashville, consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year, according to the Nashville Electric Service (NES).

In his documentary, the former Vice President calls on Americans to conserve energy by reducing electricity consumption at home.

The average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year, according to the Department of Energy. In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh—more than 20 times the national average.

Last August alone, Gore burned through 22,619 kWh—guzzling more than twice the electricity in one month than an average American family uses in an entire year. As a result of his energy consumption, Gore’s average monthly electric bill topped $1,359.

Since the release of An Inconvenient Truth, Gore’s energy consumption has increased from an average of 16,200 kWh per month in 2005, to 18,400 kWh per month in 2006.

Gore’s extravagant energy use does not stop at his electric bill. Natural gas bills for Gore’s mansion and guest house averaged $1,080 per month last year.

“As the spokesman of choice for the global warming movement, Al Gore has to be willing to walk the walk, not just talk the talk, when it comes to home energy use,” said Tennessee Center for Policy Research President Drew Johnson.

In total, Gore paid nearly $30,000 in combined electricity and natural gas bills for his Nashville estate in 2006.


Tennessee Center for Policy Research


Is it possible that George Bush is a secret Green? Evidently his Crawford Winter White House has 25,000 gallons of rainwater storage, gray water collection from sinks and showers for irrigation, passive solar, geothermal heating and cooling. “By marketplace standards, the house is startlingly small,” says David Heymann, the architect of the 4,000-square-foot home. "Clients of similar ilk are building 16-to-20,000-square-foot houses." Furthermore for thermal mass the walls are clad in "discards of a local stone called Leuders limestone, which is quarried in the area. The 12-to-18-inch-thick stone has a mix of colors on the top and bottom, with a cream-colored center that most people want. “They cut the top and bottom of it off because nobody really wants it,” Heymann says. “So we bought all this throwaway stone. It’s fabulous. It’s got great color and it is relatively inexpensive.”

I think he presented some pretty logical ways to reduce emissions

Do you take advice from someone who is "all hat and no cattle"?

You buy the 'sizzle' and I'll buy the 'steak'!

Thanks, Lobo. You said it!
