Documentary (1990): ‘The Greenhouse Conspiracy’

global-governance

By: Brent Parrish

Well, as you can see, the apocalyptic, catastrophic, anthropogenic (man-made) global warming meme goes way back. It’s just a big Ponzi scheme whose primary purpose is to  redistribute the wealth of the United States and other Western nations, and to prevent smaller (i.e. “emerging”) nations from ever achieving true independence or prosperity. They call it “sustainability.” I call it “evil.”

See, there’s only one thing the United Nations needs to become a fully-functioning world government: a global tax. And what could fit the bill better than a global carbon tax? It really is deviously clever … in a Stalinist sort of way.

This documentary originally aired on UK CH4 back in 1990. The film features climate scientists Pat Michaels,Tom Wigley, Richard Lindzen and Stephen Schneider.

Thoughts on Independence Day

Declaration of Independence Copy Up for Sale

By: Brent Parrish

Well, it’s the 4th of July, i.e., “Independence Day”; and it got to me to thinking about the whole notion of “independence” and what it means to this American.

The people who boarded leaky ships on a dangerous passage across an unforgiving ocean in hope of a better life in the New World did not embark on their dangerous voyage expecting to find free healthcare, social security, food stamps and subsidized housing upon their arrival. They simply wanted to escape tyranny and pursue their own lives as the saw fit—come what may. They preferred to try and eek out an existence in an unknown land, rather than continue to tolerate and live under the oppressive rule of monarchs and tyrants. To them, it was better to sacrifice their blood, sweat and tears in the pursuit of freedom, than to toil under “quiet servitude” to an all-powerful State.

There was no government to speak of when the pilgrims first arrived in the New Land. But, if you listen to people like Barack Obama, et al., you might be left with the impression that before the earth was ever formed, there was government. “You didn’t build that,” sayeth dear leader.

I truly believe if the liberals of today were to write their own “declaration,” they would call it the Declaration of Codependence.

Here’s how WebMD describes a codependent relationship:

The first step in getting things back on track is to understand the meaning of a codependent relationship. Experts say it’s a pattern of behavior in which you find yourself dependent on approval from someone else for your self-worth and identity.

One key sign is when your sense of purpose in life wraps around making extreme sacrifices to satisfy your partner’s needs.

“Codependent relationships signify a degree of unhealthy clinginess, where one person doesn’t have self-sufficiency or autonomy,” says Scott Wetzler, PhD, psychology division chief at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. “One or both parties depend on their loved ones for fulfillment.”

dependents-animals-welfare

For some, the need to “belong” is so strong that they are willing to sacrifice their own independence and self-worth at the altar of “belongingness.” There are those who are all too eager to allow other people to define their own self-worth for them. There are too many, if you ask me, who are more than willing to give away all their power, becoming utterly dependent on others to provide for their every spiritual, emotional and physical need—as opposed to pursuing their own life, liberty and happiness.

“From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”

—Karl Marx

It’s interesting, to me, how modern psychology tells us “codependence” is mentally unhealthy. Well, I would wholeheartedly agree with that assessment. Yet there are those in power who constantly clamor for what they call “inter-dependence.” This does not surprise me in the least. The so-called ruling elites are quite adept at exploiting human weakness for their own devious purposes (i.e. more power).

As a matter of fact, in 1976, there appeared the Declaration of Interdependence.

Here’s the first paragraph from the preamble of the Declaration of Interdependence:

When in the course of history the threat of extinction confronts mankind, it is necessary for the people of the United States to declare their interdependence with the people of all nations and to embrace those principles and build those institutions which will enable mankind to survive and civilization to flourish.

So, it looks like the today’s radicals have already written their own Declaration of Codependence. Such notables as Henry Kissinger have often talked about the need for fostering the notion of more “interdependence.” The concept of interdependence is quite popular with globalists, internationalists and the radical left these days.

In an article extolling the virtues of interdependence, Leandro Herrero writes (emphasis added):

Independence is dead. Write your declaration of Inter-dependence

[…]

Inter-dependence allows you to define your space (social, managerial, commercial, purpose). It is by understanding inter-dependence, not independence, that one can create one’s own identity. What you are, the space you occupy, what distinguishes you, is no longer something you can do in isolation, pretending to be independent. Independence works in exclusion mode. Inter-dependence works in inclusion mode. Inclusion is not agreement. It means making the most of the shared views of the world, and also being very clear about the differences, the different views of the world. It’s not one or the other; it’s both, what unites us and what separates us.

The interdependence meme forwarded by people like Mr. Herrero, et. al.—who claim individual liberty and independence are somehow selfish, exclusive and greedy—is utter nonsense. There is nothing more selfish and greedy than a State apparatus that wishes to rob the individual of their liberty and independence for its own devices. There is nothing more exclusive than a oligarchy of ruling elites who tell individuals (i.e. “the masses”) that they must depend on them for their every spiritual, emotional and physical need. It’s just regurgitated Communism under the lovable label of “global governance” and “interdependence.”

There’s an old Latin saying that states, “I prefer the tumult of liberty to the quiet of servitude.” I couldn’t agree more with that sentiment.

 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”

—Jesus Christ (Matthew 7:13)

The Declaration of Independence

We celebrate American Independence Day on the Fourth of July every year. We think of July 4, 1776, as a day that represents the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation.

But July 4, 1776 wasn’t the day that the Continental Congress decided to declare independence (they did that on July 2, 1776).

It wasn’t the day we started the American Revolution either (that had happened back in April 1775).

And it wasn’t the day Thomas Jefferson wrote the first draft of the Declaration of Independence (that was in June 1776). Or the date on which the Declaration was delivered to Great Britain (that didn’t happen until November 1776). Or the date it was signed (that was August 2, 1776).

So what did happen on July 4, 1776?

The Continental Congress approved the final wording of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. They’d been working on it for a couple of days after the draft was submitted on July 2nd and finally agreed on all of the edits and changes.

July 4, 1776, became the date that was included on the Declaration of Independence, and the fancy handwritten copy that was signed in August (the copy now displayed at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.) It’s also the date that was printed on the Dunlap Broadsides, the original printed copies of the Declaration that were circulated throughout the new nation. So when people thought of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776 was the date they remembered.

In contrast, we celebrate Constitution Day on September 17th of each year, the anniversary of the date the Constitution was signed, not the anniversary of the date it was approved. If we’d followed this same approach for the Declaration of Independence we’d being celebrating Independence Day on August 2nd of each year, the day the Declaration of Independence was signed!

How did the Fourth of July become a national holiday?

For the first 15 or 20 years after the Declaration was written, people didn’t celebrate it much on any date. It was too new and too much else was happening in the young nation. By the 1790s, a time of bitter partisan conflicts, the Declaration had become controversial. One party, the Democratic-Republicans, admired Jefferson and the Declaration. But the other party, the Federalists, thought the Declaration was too French and too anti-British, which went against their current policies.

By 1817, John Adams complained in a letter that America seemed uninterested in its past. But that would soon change.

After the War of 1812, the Federalist party began to come apart and the new parties of the 1820s and 1830s all considered themselves inheritors of Jefferson and the Democratic-Republicans. Printed copies of the Declaration began to circulate again, all with the date July 4, 1776, listed at the top. The deaths of Thomas Jefferson and John Adams on July 4, 1826, may even have helped to promote the idea of July 4 as an important date to be celebrated.

Celebrations of the Fourth of July became more common as the years went on and in 1870, almost a hundred years after the Declaration was written, Congress first declared July 4 to be a national holiday as part of a bill to officially recognize several holidays, including Christmas. Further legislation about national holidays, including July 4, was passed in 1939 and 1941.

#WeWillShootBack: ThinkProgress Glorifies Black Militant Violence

  • Author Trevor Loudon predicts that Communist-driven violence is ‘imminent’
  • New violent hashtag #WeWillShootBack glorified by Soros-funded ThinkProgress
  • ThinkProgress announces “black-only” weapons training
  • The Nation of Islam planning an October 10 rally in D.C. menacingly titled “Justice….or else!”

Trevor Loudon, expert on socialist and radical movements from New Zealand, predicts that the same rabid pro-communist organizations that incited both the Ferguson and Baltimore riots are applying the pressure for a “black spring” which will further terrorize America in the coming months.

Loudon pointed to an “article” titled “‘We Will Shoot Back': Meet The Black Activists Who Aren’t Ready To Forgive” published at the Soros-funded “news” outlet ThinkProgress on Saturday glorifying violent hashtag #WeWillShootBack.

The entirely irresponsible violence-inciting article from ThinkProgress confirms that the violent rhetoric is being ramped-up by groups such as the Nation of Islam, who are planning a rally menacingly titled “Justice….or else!” to be held on October 10, 2015 in Washington, D.C.

Some of the comments on a Facebook video featuring Minister Louis Farrakhan illustrate the intense emotions that Farrakhan inspires. One man was rewarded with 220 “likes” for declaring, “…this is the first time a Black leader is openly threatening the government to give us justice or else we’ll ‘clap back’. October 10, 2015 will not be for punks.” Another writes, “I was born for a moment like this…. We are all going to die anyway but if we must die…it must be for something….. THINK ABOUT IT…….” Still another declares passionately, “This time it is a ‘do or die’ situation. If you are not ready to die for justice for our people then stay home!!!!!!”

ThinkProgress also notes that Taurean “Sankofa” Brown, “a self-described revolutionary and proponent of militant self-defense” started the hashtag #WeWillShootBack and wants those who advocate for peace to remember that “black people have always had to take arms up against those who used violence to intimidate them and limit their progress in the United States.” Brown continued,

The point of this movement is to educate and let black people know that we too have the right to protect our families and communities by any means necessary.

The ThinkProgress article, written by Sam P.K. Collins, went on to state that “black trained firearms instructors” will be teaching “[B]lack people across the country” about “gun laws in their state and attend community trainings where instructors will show them how to use and clean their weapons as part of National Gun Registry Day, tentatively scheduled for early August.”

“There is no doubt that pro-communist organizations want to break down civil society in America,” the author of his latest book, “The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress” told Broadside News.

Back in January, Loudon wrote about Ferguson organizers joining with anti-Israel radicals in the Palestinian Authority and predicted:

Communists and their Islamic allies are looking to build on 2014’s Ferguson riots, to create major havoc in America this year.

In a must-read article published in January, Loudon explains that in addition to gathering in the Palestinian Authority, radical activists around the globe attended a conference in Moscow in part to address the “…ongoing uprising against racism and police brutality in the United States…”

Organizations such as CAIR, the Nation of Islam,  the New Black Panther Party (NBPP), the Revolutionary Communist Party, Communist Party USA, the Progressive Labor Party and the Worker’s World Party have been actively inciting race hatred in order to spark riots across the country.

“They want to destabilize America,” Loudon continued.

“A polarized society sets up the conditions that radical elements need to convince citizens that all-powerful government is society’s only hope.”

As rabid anti-capitalists, pro-communist groups seek to control society by fundamentally dismantling America, ultimately spreading communism across the globe.

The ThinkProgress article also featured New Black Panther Party leader Hashim Nzinga, who previously hijacked a Ferguson press conference, as reported at Broadside News.

At the time, Nzinga ranted that President Obama is from Kenya, calling him a “Mau Mau” and further declared:

The Black male is being exterminated…The ones who are not being exterminated, they’re push­ing them to be gay and fags so they won’t be pro­duc­tive on repro­duc­ing babies. This is about genocide.

‘We Will Shoot Back': Meet The Black Activists Who Aren’t Ready To Forgive via ThinkProgress

The Soros-funded “news” outlet ThinkProgress laughingly claims to be “non-partisan;” but based on their promotion of radical black militants, this author recommends that the outlet update their “about” section to indicate that they are nothing more than a mouth-piece for the radical left.

The Council Has Spoken!! Our Watcher’s Council Results — 07/03/15

The Watcher’s Council

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/62/C.sf.,_castelli,_carmine_gentile,_ovale_con_allegoria_dell%27accademia_degli_illuminati,_1730-1750.JPG

The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast, and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match up.

“On every question of construction, let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” –Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, June 12, 1823

“It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people’s minds.” –Samuel Adams

“We, the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts — not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow men who pervert the Constitution.” –Abraham Lincoln

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/--bd_Q_iBJfY/TsYx44QOX9I/AAAAAAAAAm8/QonbRkHSjmw/s400/Noisy%2Broom%2B2.jpg

This week’s winning essay,The Noisy Room’s The End Of Constitutional Government is a tour de force, her reaction to last weeks’ Supreme Court decisions. Here’s a slice:

It’s been an historic week and although I am not surprised by the Supreme Court decisions, they saddened me beyond belief. I have sadly come to the conclusion that many of my colleagues are correct… our Constitutional form of government is now dead and Obama’s transformative ‘change’ is all but complete.

Things are now snowballing and it is more than most Americans can take or bear. From gay marriage and the ensuing infringement on free speech and our religious rights, to enforced Obamacare, to forced wealth redistribution in our neighborhoods, to the EPA run amok… our freedoms are being absolutely nullified. States are now saying they won’t comply with the EPA on coal and who can blame them? Americans will get very dangerous when they are hungry and cold. And then there is the Iran deadline, which is this weekend. Instead of holding their feet to fire, we are actually giving Iran nuclear reactors while they shout, “Death to America!” in their parliament. Insanity is the norm now. There there is the increased Islamic State threat on our southern border and the attacks on our power grid coming down the pike. It’s surreal and all instigated, manipulated and planned for by our government – the ultimate enemy from within.

Adding to the tyrannical frenzy of the aftermath of the mass shooting in South Carolina, evidently America is cool with censoring her own history, but wants to hang on to the likes of Nazi Germany and bloody communist regimes. Satanism is still in vogue it would seem as well… but if you are a lover of the Confederate flag, well, you should be summarily burned at the stake. Let’s not leave out Stalin or concentration camps as making the ‘cool’ list either. And it goes without saying that Che Guevara is tres chic. Prohibition of thought and our history is all the rage now. No doubt next on the censorship bandwagon… burning books and thought police. Oh, wait …

The flaming lynch mob mentality of Progressives is burning through businesses across the former land of the free. They are feeling immense pressure to conform and be politically correct. None of them seem to have a spine. This is insane. Not only are they banning all Confederate flags and calling for Civil War statues to be taken down (which is erasing American history), they are getting rid of General Lee, an orange Dodge Charger from “The Dukes of Hazzard.” Walmart and Amazon have stopped selling anything having to do with the Confederate flag, but Walmart is still selling Che Guevara shirts, as well as Castro memorabilia and Iranian flags. Apple just removed Civil War Games from their App Store. South Carolina, Louisiana, Alabama and Kentucky are all removing Confederate flags as well. It’s an all you can eat buffet of political correctness feeding a ‘get em!’ move by Progressives. Now, they want to ban Gone With The Wind. We have literally plummeted down the rabbit hole and are sipping tea with the Mad Hatter. The Constitution is now being replaced with censorship and regulation – it’s incomprehensible.

At least one good thing came out of the Supreme Court this week. During the Great Depression, the government decided that prices paid to farmers were too low and undertook to correct the problem by limiting their output. It was a fascist move then and is still one now. It is sheer theft. Marvin and Laura Horne decided not to play that game and took their beef all the way to the Supreme Court – raisin hell, so-to-speak. And they won on Monday! The feds claimed they owed $700,000 because they would not surrender 47% of their crop for over a decade to the government with no compensation. Not even the left-leaning Supremes could let that one slide.

The Raisin Administrative Committee, which operates under the supervision of the USDA, sells or gives away the raisins it takes, with the proceeds going to cover its operating costs, storage fees and promotional efforts abroad. If any money is left, the farmers get some of it. If not, they receive nada. Looks like the Road to Serfdom has been detoured on this issue, at least for now. The unconstitutional theft being imposed on farmers such as the Hornes is no more. But at least these raisin farmers can get back to raising their crops and taking care of business – liberal fascism has moved on to the next hot topic.

Then there was the ultimate betrayal by Justice Roberts and the ruling in favor of Obamacare this week. The ruling stomped all over state’s rights and bent over backwards to reinterpret the Obamacare statute in favor of federal exchanges. “The somersaults of statutory interpretation they [the Justices of the Supreme Court] have performed …will be cited by litigants endlessly, to the confusion of honest jurisprudence,” concludes Justice Antonin Scalia in his dissent, joined by Justices Clarence Thomas and Sam Alito. “And the cases will publish forever the discouraging truth that the Supreme Court of the United States favors some laws over others, and is prepared to do whatever it takes to uphold and assist its favorites.”

Meanwhile, in Sweden (Episode 2)

***WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE***

Via Angry Foreigner:

The land of Rape and Progressiveness! Oh thou fair knight, offer up ye maidens of Sweden as a sacrifice on the altar of multiculturalism and tolerance! For it would surely be a death sentence to acknowledge that Swedish peasants be worth more to their land than the citizens of other nations.

Nigel Farage: Slovakia Said NO to Greek Bailout

Slovakia voted NO to Greece but was forced to vote again, which was against the Slovak law. The Law of Slovak Republic says the parliament can vote on the same subject only after 6 months. Not the next day.

Eeeeeek Greek! Could the US Fall Apart Like the EU? | Trifecta

What if Texas just stopped accepting California’s bullcrap? Just like Germany is doing with Greece in the EU…

Greek Referendum to Determine European Union’s Viability

The latest polls show that on Sunday Greek citizens are likely to reject the terms of the bailout from the troika — the European Union, the European Central Bank (ECB), and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) — but by a steadily decreasing plurality. Before Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras announced the referendum, polls showed voters were opposed to the bailout terms, 57 to 30 percent. When the banks closed and citizens were restricted to withdrawing just $67 a day from their ATMs and pensioners couldn’t cash their checks, polls showed a narrowing, 46 to 37 percent.

Tsipras repeatedly said that the referendum is only about accepting or rejecting the terms imposed by the troika, not about leaving the euro or the European Union: “No does not mean rupture with Europe but a return to Europe with values.”

The Watcher’s Council

Yes, once again, It’s time to present this week’s statuette of shame, the Golden Weasel!!

Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week’s nominees were all particularly slimy and despicable, but the votes are in and we have a unanimous winner… the envelope please…

Legal Surgeon, Amateur Legislator and Chief Justice John Roberts!

The Noisy Room: Justice John Roberts for his judicial activism on King v. Burwell and the ultimate betrayal with his ruling in favor of Obamacare this week. The ruling stomped all over state’s rights and bent over backwards to reinterpret the Obamacare statute in favor of federal exchanges. “The somersaults of statutory interpretation they [the Justices of the Supreme Court] have performed …will be cited by litigants endlessly, to the confusion of honest jurisprudence,” concludes Justice Antonin Scalia in his dissent, joined by Justices Clarence Thomas and Sam Alito. “And the cases will publish forever the discouraging truth that the Supreme Court of the United States favors some laws over others, and is prepared to do whatever it takes to uphold and assist its favorites.”

“So it rewrites the law to make tax credits available everywhere,” he dissents. “We should start calling this law SCOTUScare.” The Court’s interpretation is “absurd,” Justice Scalia opined. And right he is. Scalia is a brilliant legal mind and he is horrified by the Leftist turn of the court. This must tear his soul apart. This was simply a political power play and one has to wonder, as I have before, if Chief Roberts has skeletons in his closet that are being used to sway his opinion.

This partisan ruling will have wide-ranging, catastrophic ramifications for America. The majority opinion states that “The combination of no tax credits and an ineffective coverage requirement could well push a State’s individual insurance market into a death spiral.” And it inevitably will. Which in turn, will usher in single-payer healthcare. It’s coming.

“It is implausible that Congress meant the Act to operate in this manner,” Justice John Roberts writes for the majority. Really? Because it looks entirely plausible to me. In fact, choreographed.

Justice Scalia notes that these Justices are “presuppos[ing] the availability of tax credits on both federal and state Exchanges.” In layman terms, that means that federal tax credits that have already been given to millions of people must continue. Along with the tax credits will come higher premiums, crappier healthcare, death panels, higher deductibles and part-time employment as the national norm.

This is tyranny and what you are seeing here is the dissolution of the three branches of constitutional government we are based upon. We now have one executive behemoth branch that is drunk with power and careening out of control, right on schedule. Justice Roberts is a treasonous weasel, whose legacy will include the ending of our Republic as we have known it.


You know, this was an interesting week for Justice Roberts. One day, he’s rewriting ObamaCare for the second time, clearly disregarding what the law said and substituting what he thought the law ought to say.

A few days later he’s writing the minority opinion on same sex marriage, harshly criticizing the Court for – wait for it – legislating from the bench!

Those whom characterize Justice Roberts as lacking in testosterone have it all wrong. It takes real Weasel with cojones to criticize the Court for doing what you did just a few days ago!

The truth of the matter is, like almost all Weasels, John Roberts looks out for Number One. There’s suspicion that the Obama regime has something on him and given whom Barack Obama is and the amount of spying and data collection that’s been going on, that’s not at all an unreasonable scenario. Or it could be he’s being intimidated or bribed in some other way. But he’s not an idiot and for him to make such a hypocritical switcheroo like that, the simplest and most obvious explanation is that he was told beforehand that his vote wasn’t needed to impose same sex marriage on America. That way, he could come out with a dissent that criticized exactly what he himself did in the ObamaCare ruling, to try and salvage some of his credibility as a PR move. It didn’t work of course, but weasels live by that old saying about dogs barking, but the caravan moving on.

The damage he and his cohorts whom voted to judicially rewrite ObamaCare, redefine marriage and lay the ground for attacks on the First Amendment isn’t at all obvious to those cheering on the New Order, but that damage is severe and will last for some time. Roberts probably realizes it, at least intellectually. But the fact remains that on ObamaCare, he did what he did anyway. And I’m sure that had Justice Kennedy swung the other way and Roberts’ vote was needed to impose same sex marriage, Roberts would have voted that way.

In any event, he performed like a trained seal. He did what he was supposed to and after all, he has a lifetime appointment. And of course, a well-earned Golden Weasel.

Well, there it is.

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum and remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council and the results are posted on Friday morning.

It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere and you won’t want to miss it… or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.
