Barack Hussein Obama is set to deliver a, sigh, major speech (does this man ever deliver minor speeches?) about so-called climate change.
Whatever happened to Global Warming?
And gee, back in the ice age of 1977, Time published a cover story about global cooling and the impending, y’know, Ice Age.
Here’s how it works: The left manufactures a crisis, invents fantastical language to sell their hysterical narrative, and then propose solutions that always involve:
- Raising taxes.
- Dropping regulations on the American people that strangle free enterprise and personal liberty.
- Hiring legions of hostile government bureaucrats to enforce the blizzard of new regulations.
- And when the predictions of the left turn out to be false—as they always are—the media, in service to the regulatory government, consign the truth to a Soviet-style memory hole.
Barack Hussein Obama’s mission is to turn America into a European-style socialist economy. The fact that such economies are teetering on the edge of ruin is an inconsequential detail. The intention to create an allegedly more fair and just society is enough to justify, well, anything.
Climate change, like all radical Democrat programs, involves people control.
Liberty is too messy, too chaotic for the forces of the Democrat party. They yearn for conformity, for a uniform sameness that gives the illusion of a serenely content society. That’s why they want to get rid of cars and shove us all into railroad cars. Socialists just love cattle cars; they just relabel them high-speed rail.
That’s why Democrats want to get rid of the Second Amendment. An armed citizenry can resist an unjust government.
Ultimately, the Democrat party is obsessed with micro-control of space, private and public, of “every breath you take, every move you make.”
Short list: Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, open borders, industrial abortion, the hollowing out of the US military—IslamoNazis do not exist in the brave new world of the radical left—and now bypassing Congress (i.e., the American people) and the rule of law to create a delusional green economy which means higher taxes, sky-high energy bills, and the mugging of key industries such as coal and oil.
This is madness.
I don’t recognize my country of birth anymore. I pray the U.S. will recover, and soon.
This is the age of Obatyranny.
