More Facts for Gaia Worshippers To Ignore

New NASA Data Blow Gaping Hole In Global Warming Alarmism

It’s a terrible misfortune for self-aggrandizers, who believe that they are intelligent enough and all-powerful enough to dismiss the Creator of our universe and take over control of the weather themselves.

Climategate: A Summary Review

Man-made greenhouse-gas warming of the earth, Keynesian-Marxian economics, and Darwinian theories of evolution are, not scientific matters, but part of the materialistic religious dogma of liberal-progressive-socialism.  Believers therein vigorously refuse to consider any contradictory evidence, preferring to remain cocooned in their faith.

But for anyone who has not yet made up his mind about global warming alarmism, it is worthwhile to read The Truth About Greenhouse Gases: The dubious science of the climate crusaders, by William Happer, the Cyrus Fogg Brackett Professor of Physics at Princeton University.

Fed Inflates The Dollar and The Stock Market

Two headlines in today’s Wall Street Journal website summarize the destructive effectiveness of the Federal Reserve’s monetary inflation policies:

Bernanke: Fed Ready to Act if Needed

Stocks Surge on Fed Hopes
U.S. stocks jumped as investors saw hope for further economic stimulus in the form of “QE3” from the Federal Reserve.

As I wrote last November:

California Is the Liberal-Progressive Model For the United States

Liberal-progressive policies are killing the California economy.  High taxes, soaring public debt, strangling regulation, and political collusion with extortionate labor unions are killing the job market in California. 

More companies are leaving California than coming into the state to establish or expand businesses.  A growing number of American companies are electing to expand overseas, where the economic climate for business enterprise is decidedly more welcoming.

California’s Democrat/Socialist Party controls the state government.  They refuse to control spending and keep assuring the voters that all be well if they can continue to impose higher taxes.

Obama is following the same script, with the same disastrous results.

Counter-Productive State Planning

Despite Obama’s many economic interventions, the economy remains stagnated at the worst unemployment levels since the Great Depression.  Oblivious to reality, liberal-progressive bureaucrats remain confident that they can employ the methodology of Lenin’s Gosplan and, this time, make it work.

Liberal-Progessivism’s One-World Under Third World Control

President Obama’s foreign policy is imbued with the mythology of a perfect and harmonious world run by the UN and the Islamic nations who dominate its policies.  Reflecting the secular religious gnosticism of liberal-progressivism, he appears to believe that restructuring governmental institutions on a worldwide scale will transform human nature, making the whole world one happy family. 

Or perhaps he recognizes privately that his foreign policy will clear the field for Islamic jihad, which he finds less troubling than defending the national interests of the United States.


A Long Way To Go

President Obama’s clueless reaction to the latest dismal unemployment statistics, per the Wall Street Journal, was, “We still have a long way to go and a lot of work to do.”

The most effective work Obama could do is to spend 18 hours a day, six days a week, studying economics with an Austrian-school advisor.  He obviously is an economic ignoramus and is surrounded by liberal-progressive ideologues similarly lacking.
