Wondering About Obama Second Term Agenda? Well Here Is Part Of It – EPA Regulations Put on Hold Until After the Election –

Senator Inhofe just released a report on what will be part of Obama’s  second term agenda! 

New Senate Report Reveals Economic Pain of Obama-EPA Regulations Put on Hold Until After the Election

Puts Spotlight on an Agency that has “Earned a Reputation for Abuse”

Washington, D.C. – Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, today released a new EPW Minority Report entitled, “A Look Ahead to EPA Regulations for 2013: Numerous Obama EPA Rules Placed On Hold until after the Election Spell Doom for Jobs and Economic Growth.”

This report enumerates the slew of environmental regulations that the Obama-Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has delayed or punted on before the election while President Obama is trying to earn votes; but the Obama-EPA plans to move full speed ahead to implement this agenda if President Obama wins a second term. As this report reveals, these rules taken together will inevitably result in the elimination of millions of American jobs, drive up the price of gas at the pump even more, impose construction bans on local communities, and essentially shut down American oil, natural gas, and coal production.

“President Obama has spent the past year punting on a slew of job-killing EPA regulations that will destroy millions of American jobs and cause energy pri

U.S Department of Homeland Security…Doing What The “Crazies” Warned Us About ooops.

Back in the days of 9/11 some lone voices in the Wilderness, not me, said that we ought to be careful of establishing another Arm of the Government with sort of power DHS had… Well we have a crazy son of a bitch in office and sure enough he is using DHS to go after everyone.

Environmental Justice Strategy February 2012

VISION STATEMENT

“Environmental justice” describes the commitment of the Federal Government, through its policies, programs, and activities, to avoid placing disproportionately high and adverse effects on the human health and environment of minority or low-income populations. As described in the 2010 Quadrennial Homeland Security Review (QHSR), our Nation’s vision of homeland security is a homeland safe and secure, resilient against terrorism and other hazards, and where American interests and aspirations and the American way of life can thrive. In seeking to fulfill this vision, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) aspires to avoid burdening minority and low-income populations with a disproportionate share of any adverse human health or environmental risks associated with our efforts to secure the Nation. DHS joins with other departments and agencies to appropriately include environmental justice practices in our larger mission efforts involving federal law enforcement and emergency response activities.

I. INTRODUCTION

A. Overview  DHS’ ability to affect environmental justice arises principally through environmental review of the impact of our own operations, financial assistance to state, local and tribal governments, and through regulatory permitting activities. Recognizing that the incorporation of environmental justice policies may be highly variable across parts of the Department depending on a component’s mission, this Environmental Justice Strategy is intended to promote a comprehensive, consistent and adaptive strategy among our components.

In August 2011, DHS joined a Memorandum of Understanding on Environmental Justice (EJ MOU) to participate in government-wide environmental justice efforts, consistent with DHS’ own authorities and missions, and is a “Participating Agency” in the Interagency Working Group on Environmental Justice, pursuant to section III.B of the EJ MOU.

In accordance with Executive Order 12898 and the EJ MOU, federal agencies, including DHS, agreed to fulfill the following commitments on Federal Agency Environmental Justice Strategies, Public Input, and Annual Reporting: Environmental Justice Strategy. This is the first DHS Environmental Justice Strategy. As a part of the development of this Strategy, DHS provided public access through posting a draft of the Strategy on its public website, provided an email address for the submission of public comments, provided a notice of the availability of the Strategy to stakeholders with an interest in DHS civil rights and civil liberties issues and posted a link to the draft Strategy on the Environmental Justice webpage of the Environmental Protection Agency’s public website Here Come the Green Police!

Peak Oil Rests On The Idea That Oil Is A Limited Resource…Maybe Not So True!

From Wikipedia a description of the commonly held view regarding the formation of petroleum. If you didn’t pay attention in school when we were taught that billions of plankton gave their lives to form the stuff we put into our SUV’s here is a quick refresher course. Pay attention because this is a critical piece of the puzzle to many theories of our economy collapsing, I am talking about Peak Oil.

Petroleum is a fossil fuel derived from ancient fossilizedorganic materials, such as zooplankton and algae.[20] Vast quantities of these remains settled to sea or lake bottoms, mixing with sediments and being buried under anoxic conditions. As further layers settled to the sea or lake bed, intense heat and pressure built up in the lower regions. This process caused the organic matter to change, first into a waxy material known as kerogen, which is found in various oil shales around the world, and then with more heat into liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons via a process known as catagenesis. Formation of petroleum occurs from hydrocarbonpyrolysis in a variety of mainly endothermic reactions at high temperature and/or pressure.[21]

There were certain warm nutrient-rich environments such as the Gulf of Mexico and the ancient Tethys Sea where the large amounts of organic material falling to the ocean floor exceeded the rate at which it could decompose. This resulted in large masses of organic material being buried under subsequent deposits such as shale formed from mud. This massive organic deposit later became heated and transformed under pressure into oil.[22]

Geologists often refer to the temperature range in which oil forms as an “oil window”[23]—below the minimum temperature oil remains trapped in the form of kerogen, and above the maximum temperature the oil is converted to natural gas through the process of thermal cracking. Sometimes, oil formed at extreme depths may migrate and become trapped at a much shallower level. The Athabasca Oil Sands is one example of this.

Obviously there wasn’t an unlimited supply of those poor little zooplankton…and so we must sooner or later run out of oil.  Now for the longest time folks have been pointing out that we can find methane in other places around the solar system…the peak oil lobby simply claimed that yea yea sure we can find simple hydrocarbons in space but we arent’ ever gonna find complex hydrocarbons…cause for those we need Dino the dinosaur or Pauline Protozoa.  Well apparently Dino and Pauline get around a bit more than expected…

In today’s issue of the journal Nature, astronomers report that organic compounds of unexpected complexity exist throughout the Universe.  The results suggest that complex organic compounds are not the sole domain of life but can be made naturally by stars.

Prof. Sun Kwok and Dr. Yong Zhang of the University of Hong Kong show that an organic substance commonly found throughout the Universe contains a mixture of aromatic (ring-like) and aliphatic (chain-like) components.  The compounds are so complex that their chemical structures resemble those of coal and petroleum.  Since coal and oil are remnants of ancient life, this type of organic matter was thought to arise only from living organisms.   The team’s discovery suggests that complex organic compounds can be synthesized in space even when no life forms are present.

The researchers investigated an unsolved phenomenon: a set of infrared emissions detected in stars, interstellar space, and galaxies.  These spectral signatures are known as “Unidentified Infrared Emission features”.  For over two decades, the most commonly accepted theory on the origin of these signatures has been that they come from simple organic molecules made of carbon and hydrogen atoms, called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) molecules.  From observations taken by the Infrared Space Observatory and the Spitzer Space Telescope, Kwok and Zhang showed that the astronomical spectra have features that cannot be explained by PAH molecules.   Instead, the team proposes that the substances generating these infrared emissions have chemical structures that are much more complex.  By analyzing spectra of star dust formed in exploding stars called novae, they show that stars are making these complex organic compounds on extremely short time scales of weeks.

Not only are stars producing this complex organic matter, they are also ejecting it into the general interstellar space, the region between stars.  The work supports an earlier idea proposed by Kwok that old stars are molecular factories capable of manufacturing organic compounds.  “Our work has shown that stars have no problem making complex organic compounds under near-vacuum conditions,” says Kwok.  “Theoretically, this is impossible, but observationally we can see it happening.”

Most interestingly, this organic star dust is similar in structure to complex organic compounds found in meteorites.  Since meteorites are remnants of the early Solar System, the findings raise the possibility that stars enriched the early Solar System with organic compounds.  The early Earth was subjected to severe bombardments by comets and asteroids, which potentially could have carried organic star dust.  Whether these delivered organic compounds played any role in the development of life on Earth remains an open question.

So maybe the world is gonna end but it ain’t likely to end because we ran out of oil.

Death Panels An Interview With President Obama – NYTimes.com

Hahaha…That Sarah off on a tangent again…Death Panels??? Can I get a Harrumph!?!

Oh wait…hmmm this looks bad.

Now, I actually think that the tougher issue around medical care — it’s a related one — is what you do around things like end-of-life care —

Yes, where it’s $20,000 for an extra week of life.

THE PRESIDENT: Exactly. And I just recently went through this. I mean, I’ve told this story, maybe not publicly, but when my grandmother got very ill during the campaign, she got cancer; it was determined to be terminal. And about two or three weeks after her diagnosis she fell, broke her hip. It was determined that she might have had a mild stroke, which is what had precipitated the fall.

So now she’s in the hospital, and the doctor says, Look, you’ve got about — maybe you have three months, maybe you have six months, maybe you have nine months to live. Because of the weakness of your heart, if you have an operation on your hip there are certain risks that — you know, your heart can’t take it. On the other hand, if you just sit there with your hip like this, you’re just going to waste away and your quality of life will be terrible.

And she elected to get the hip replacement and was fine for about two weeks after the hip replacement, and then suddenly just — you know, things fell apart.

I don’t know how much that hip replacement cost. I would have paid out of pocket for that hip replacement just because she’s my grandmother. Whether, sort of in the aggregate, society making those decisions to give my grandmother, or everybody else’s aging grandparents or parents, a hip replacement when they’re terminally ill is a sustainable model, is a very difficult question. If somebody told me that my grandmother couldn’t have a hip replacement and she had to lie there in misery in the waning days of her life — that would be pretty upsetting.

And it’s going to be hard for people who don’t have the option of paying for it.

THE PRESIDENT: So that’s where I think you just get into some very difficult moral issues. But that’s also a huge driver of cost, right?

I mean, the chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives are accounting for potentially 80 percent of the total health care bill out here.

So how do you — how do we deal with it?

This is where it gets ugly…and just as lawyers have been trained to do from the beginning of time he does not allow himself to be cornered into saying that these conversations, guided by panels made up of Doctors, Scientists and errr ethicists, will not be voluntary. The elephant in the room is the idea that this “Death Panel” will not have the power to make blanket rules about circumstances which the government should not fund.

I am from the Government and I am here to help.

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I think that there is going to have to be a conversation that is guided by doctors, scientists, ethicists. And then there is going to have to be a very difficult democratic conversation that takes place. It is very difficult to imagine the country making those decisions just through the normal political channels. And that’s part of why you have to have some independent group that can give you guidance. It’s not determinative, but I think has to be able to give you some guidance. And that’s part of what I suspect you’ll see emerging out of the various health care conversations that are taking place on the Hill right now.   After the Great Recession – An Interview With President Obama – NYTimes.com

One has to wonder who Obama might want on his “independent” group.

John Holdren springs to mind…

John P. Holdren is advisor to President Barack Obama for Science and Technology, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and Co-Chair of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST)

Here are some choice quotes from the guy Obama might tap to be on an independent group giving guidance to the sick. Take it away Johnny! All of the following material is borrowed from the absolutely remarkable work by Zombietime blog.

Harrison Brown’s most remarkable book, The Challenge of Man’s Future (Viking, 1954; reprinted by Westview, 1984), was published more than three decades ago. By the time I read it as a high school student a few years later, the book had been widely acclaimed as a monumental survey of the human prospect, illuminated through analysis of the interaction of population, technology, and the resources of the physical world. I knew even before high school that science and technology held special interest for me, and I suppose I also had some prior interest in the larger human condition. But The Challenge of Man’s Future pulled these interests together for me in a way that transformed my thinking about the world and about the sort of career I wanted to pursue. I have always suspected that I am not the only member of my generation whose aspirations and subsequent career were changed by this book of Harrison Brown’s.

What was so special about the book? Perhaps most impressive at the time was the combination of audacity and erudition with which Brown wove together insights from anthropology, history, economics, geochemistry, biology, and the study of technology to provide a coherent, multidimensional picture of his subject—how humans have provided themselves with the physical ingredients of existence in the past, their prospects for doing so in the future, and the connections between these matters and the sociopolitical dimensions of the human condition. As a demonstration of the power of (and necessity for) an interdisciplinary approach to global problems, the book was a tour de force.

And who is it exactly that Holdren admires so much? Well Harrison is a swell character. Here are some quotes from the book that Holdren claims had such an impact on his choice for his life’s work.

Page 105 of The Challenge of Man’s Future by Harrison Brown

First, man can discourage unfit persons from breeding. Second, he can encourage breeding by those persons who are judged fit on the basis of physical and mental testing and examinations of the records of their ancestors.

Priorities for artificial insemination could be given to healthy women of high intelligence whose ancestors possessed no dangerous genetic defects. Conversely, priorities for abortions could be given to less intelligent persons of biologically unsound stock.

Such steps would undoubtedly contribute substantially to a slowing down of species deterioration. But it is clear that they would by no means be sufficient. A broad eugenics program would have to be formulated which would aid in the establishment of policies that would encourage able and healthy persons to have several offspring and discourage the unfit from breeding at excessive rates.

Here is Obama’s science advisor Holdren again lauding the perversion of life that Brown represents. We fought a bloody war against another group of maniacs who thought they knew who was fit and who wasn’t. Now we are putting this maniacs into office. Take it away Obama Science advisor Holdren.

Here are some more choice quotes from this “Tour de Force” The Challenge of Man’s Future by Harrison Brown.

In the first place, it is amply clear that population stabilization and a world composed of completely independent sovereign states are incompatible. Populations cannot be stabilized by agreement any more than levels of armament can be stabilized by agreement. And, as in the latter case, a world authority is needed which has the power of making, interpreting, and enforcing, within specified spheres, laws which are directly applicable to the individual. Indeed, population stabilization is one of the two major problems with which a world government must necessarily concern itself.

Given a world authority with jurisdiction over population problems, the task of assessing maximum permissible population levels on a regional basis need not be prohibitively difficult.

We are handing our lives over to a bunch of folks who think it is ok to decide who lives and who dies. We are handing our lives over to a bunch of folks who further think that there are too many humans on the planet. We are handing our lives to folks whose friends have talked about eliminating millions because they hold the wrong philosophy on life…take it away Weathermen.

The title of this post is a partial quote from FBI Operative and Army veteran Larry Grathwohl who infiltrated the Weather Underground combined with an observation of my wife. It was question to Billy Ayers, Bernadette Dohrn and other Weathermen during a conversation about what they envisioned the United States would look like after they won the war. Yes he confirms that Billy Ayers, a person Obama called a guy in his neighborhood, was in the room when this was said: (thank you to Bob Owens from Confederate Yankee for a terrific article and to Pajama Media for hosting it!)

I asked, Well what is going to happen to those people we can’t reeducate, that are diehard capitalists? And the reply was that they’d have to be eliminated.

And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.

And when I say eliminate, I mean kill.

Twenty-five million people.

I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people.

And they were dead serious.

So when you laugh at Sarah Palin…maybe it is almost like whistling past the graveyard eh? Cause the folks we have managed to put into power are just this dangerous.

Well this might be a bit of problem for a world economic recovery. Prices spiraling out of control and folks starving to death due to under supply caused by a fungus that is sweeping the world.

OTTAWA — Scientists in Canada and around the world are racing to find a way to stop a destructive fungus that threatens to wipe out 80 per cent of the world’s wheat crop, causing widespread famine and pushing the cost of such staples as bread and pasta through the roof.

Canadian officials say that the airborne fungus, known as Ug99, has so far proved unstoppable, making its way out of eastern Africa and into the Middle East and Central Asia. It is now threatening areas that account for more than one-third of the world’s wheat production and scientists in North America say it’s only a matter of time before the pest hits the breadbasket regions of North America, Russia and China.

"I think it’s important people start recognizing what a big threat this is. This could mean world famine. This is quite the deal," said Rob Graf, a research scientist with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s research centre in Lethbridge, Alta.

The United Nations calls Ug99 "a major threat" to the world’s food security.

"Anything that one part of the world gets, another part of the world will eventually get," said Doug Robertson, president of The Grain Growers of Canada. "Stem rust can be a really devastating disease." Fungus threat hangs over world wheat production

And any due diligence regarding our food supply should stop over at Market Skeptics, this story specifically.

CUDA ATTACK! SARAH DOES WHAT NO OTHER REPUBLICAN HAS THE BALLS TO DO! ATTACK OBAMA! WHY IS IT THAT ONLY REPUBLICAN WOMEN ARE TOUGH? WHERE ARE THE MEN???? SARAH PALIN 2012!

Sarah taking it to that bastard in the White House! You Betcha!

PALIN: That’s how I feel! I feel like… and I think that more and more constituents are going to open their eyes now and open their ears to hear what is really going on and realize ok… Maybe we didn’t have a good way of expressing that, or articulating that message of ‘here is what America could potentially become if we grow government to such a degree that we cannot pay for it and we have to borrow money from other countries, some countries that don’t necessarily like America.

And this many months into the new administration, quite disappointed, quite frustrated with not seeing those actions to rein in spending, slow down the growth of government. Instead Sean it is the complete opposite. It’s expanding at such a large degree that if Americans aren’t paying attention, unfortunately our country could evolve into something that we do not even recognize.

HANNITY: Socialism?

PALIN: Well, that is where we are headed. That is where we have to be blunt enough and candid enough and honest enough with Americans to let them know that if we keep going down these roads… nationalizing many of our services, our projects, our businesses, yes that is where we would head. And that is why Americans have to be paying attention. And we have to have our voices heard. And ultimately it need to be our will, the American people’s will imposed on Washington, instead of the other way around.

The interview is set to air tonight on FOXNEWS, 9 PM ET.  DRUDGE REPORT: PALIN: ‘TOLD YA SO’ 2009®

Here is EXACTLY what she predicted in 2008 in her acceptance speech. Sarah got it exactly right.

This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting and never use the word "victory" except when he’s talking about his own campaign. But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed … when the roar of the crowd fades away … when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot — what exactly is our opponent’s plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he’s done turning back the waters and healing the planet? The answer is to make government bigger … take more of your money … give you more orders from Washington … and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world. America needs more energy … our opponent is against producing it.

Victory in Iraq is finally in sight … he wants to forfeit.

Terrorist states are seeking nuclear weapons without delay … he wants to meet them without preconditions.

Al-Qaida terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America … he’s worried that someone won’t read them their rights? Government is too big … he wants to grow it.

Congress spends too much … he promises more.

Taxes are too high … he wants to raise them. His tax increases are the fine print in his economic plan, and let me be specific.

The Democratic nominee for president supports plans to raise income taxes … raise payroll taxes … raise investment income taxes … raise the death tax … raise business taxes … and increase the tax burden on the American people by hundreds of billions of dollars. My sister Heather and her husband have just built a service station that’s now opened for business — like millions of others who run small businesses.

Any questions?

Well another day another vicious attack on a citizen who manages to utter a thought contrary to the meme of the left. Irony is apparently unknown to the left because they take themselves so seriously. How else to explain that they preach tolerance but practice attack and in attack they observe no rules. Exactly how long do they get away with this nonsense before we start getting pissed off?

The Desert Rock Energy Facility…Flattering EPA Report, Now You See It! Now You Don’t! Fun Stuff Over At EPA!

On April 28th Obama fulfilled a campaign promise regarding bankrupting Coal Power plants. He accomplished this by having his EPA pull a permit that had already been issued for the Desert Rock Energy Facility.  Well that’s not all the EPA is pulling retroactively! They also pulled the flattering report they themselves wrote regarding the very same facility.

Take a look at these two screenshots of this report regarding that very same powerplant. Sounds like the EPA was all for it until Obama wasn’t and then poof the EPA made the report go away. Thank you Google Cache!

Obviously some serious money was lost since the permit was already issued but hey the Power Company probably wasn’t a big enough contributor to the various extortionists/national politicians we seem to have running all over the place. Change you can believe in!

I had to take screenshots because the original page no longer exists on the EPA website. You can search for Desert Rock on the EPA site and the 10th result you get is a link to the report, the search result still exists at this time. But it links to a page not found, hence the screenshots of this report:  The Desert Rock Energy Facility: A Cleaner Coal Power Plant | Region 9: Air | US EPA If you click the link though it shows the page as not being found.

EPASCREEN1 EPASCREEN2 

Well unfortunately for the EPA, Google Cache still had a copy. I took screenshots because gee you never know when stuff might just automagically disappear from Google Cache. Quiet I think I hear one of those Black Helicopters…speaking of if you haven’t seen Conspiracy Theory with Mel Gibson stop reading right now and go rent it!

Here is a local report on the terrible news that the EPA had gone back on its committment to issue a permit. How many dollars were pissed away here?

EPA pulls the plug on Desert Rock coal-fired power plant

By Marjorie Childress 4/28/09 1:11 AM

coal-power-plant-pic1ALBUQUERQUE — In a dramatic move yesterday, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) withdrew the air quality permit it issued last summer for the Desert Rock coal-fired power plant, which is slated to be built on the Navajo Nation in the Four Corners region just southwest of Farmington, New Mexico.

Oh and a few more pages turn up missing on the EPA server…like this report on the emissions. Poof gone, but not gone from Google. Here is a copy paste. Gee it is almost like the EPA and Obama don’t want you to know that they are pissing away perfectly good energy sources to placate the far loony left environmentalists.

Emissions Data
Comparison of Desert Rock to Existing Coal Plants

These charts compare anticipated emissions of nitrigen oxides (NOx) and sulfur dioxide (SO2) from the proposed Desert Rock facility with the same type of emissions from two existing coal-fired power plants in the vicinity- the Four Corners plant and the San Juan plant. The charts show that emissions will be significantly lower from the Desert Rock facility.

Sadly I cannot get this graph!

Nor can I get this graph...kinda sad that our Government agencies are this corrupt!

Is this the change we were waiting for? Is this what all those moderates thought they were getting when they voted for Obama? Exactly how crooked is our government?

Greenies Target Fat Asses…Times Up Fatty! You are Hurting MOTHER GAIA!

If your ass looks like this:

Don’t you feel guilty for hurting Mother GAIA???

Well get ready to start feeling guilty because the enviro-wackos are deciding that you are part of the problem.

LONDON (Reuters) – Overweight people eat more than thin people and are more likely to travel by car, making excess body weight doubly bad for the environment, according to a study from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.

"When it comes to food consumption, moving about in a heavy body is like driving around in a gas guzzler," and food production is a major source of greenhouse gases, researchers Phil Edwards and Ian Roberts wrote in their study, published in the International Journal of Epidemiology.

"We need to be doing a lot more to reverse the global trend toward fatness, and recognize it as a key factor in the battle to reduce (carbon) emissions and slow climate change," the British scientists said.

They estimated that each fat person is responsible for about one tonne of carbon dioxide emissions a year more on average than each thin person, adding up to an extra one billion tonnes of CO2 a year in a population of one billion overweight people.

The European Union estimates each EU citizen accounts for 11 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions a year.Stay slim to save the planet | Health | Reuters

Yup it’s existence is an existential threat to GAIA and nothing must harm GAIA

Can you say Hubris? Yes there was a time when the Environmentalists had a point…that moment passed us right by about 20 years ago. Now they are maniacs bent on controlling us out of existence.

I Told You So Will Seem So Trite When We Are Left Foraging For Food…So Let Me Say It Now America, “I Told You So”

Barack Obama inauguration: this Emperor has no clothes, it will all end in tears

Barack Obama, Freedom of Choice Act, Neil Kinnock, stimulus package, Tony Blair

This will end in tears. The Obama hysteria is not merely embarrassing to witness, it is itself contributory to the scale of the disaster that is coming. What we are experiencing, in the deepening days of a global depression, is the desperate suspension of disbelief by people of intelligence – la trahison des clercs – in a pathetic effort to hypnotise themselves into the delusion that it will be all right on the night. It will not be all right.

We have been here before. In the spring of 1997, to be precise, when a charismatic, young prime minister entered Downing Street, cheered by children bussed in for the occasion waving plastic Union Jacks. A very few of us at that time incurred searing reproaches for denouncing the Great Charlatan (as I have always denominated Tony Blair) and dissenting from the public hysteria. Three times a deluded Britain elected that transparent fraud. Yesterday, when national bankruptcy became a formal reality, we reaped the bitter harvest of the Blair/Brown imposture.

The burnt child, contrary to conventional wisdom, does not fear the fire. After the Blair experience there is no excuse for anybody in Britain falling for Obama. Yet today, in this country, even some of those who remained sane during the emotional spasm of the Diana aberration are pumping the air for Princess Barack. At a time of gross economic and geopolitical instability throughout the Western world, this is beyond irresponsibility.

To anyone who kept his head, the string of Christmas cracker mottoes booming through the public address system on Washington’s National Mall can only excite scepticism. It is crucial to recall the reality that lies behind the rhetoric. Denouncing "those who seek to advance their aims by inducing terror and slaughtering innocents" comes ill from a man whose flagship legislation, the Freedom of Choice Act, will impose abortion, including partial-birth abortion, on every state in the Union. It seems the era of Hope is to be inaugurated with a slaughter of the innocents.

Obama’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan is like one of those toxic packages traded by bankers: it camouflages many unaffordable gifts to his client state. With a federal deficit already at $1.2 trillion, Obama wants to squander $825 billion (which will undoubtedly mushroom to more than $1 trillion) on creating 600,000 more government jobs and a further 459,000 in "green energy" (useless wind turbines and other Heath-Robinson contraptions favoured by Beltway environmentalists).

It is frightening to think there is a real possibility that the entire world economy could go into complete meltdown and famine kill millions. Yet Western – and British – commentators are cocooned in a warm comfort zone of infatuation with America’s answer to Neil Kinnock. We should be long past applauding politicians of any hue: they got us into this mess. The best deserve a probationary opportunity to prove themselves, the worst should be in jail.

It is questionable whether the present political system can survive the coming crisis. Whatever the solution, teenage swooning sentimentality over a celebrity cult has no part in it. The most powerful nation on earth is confronting its worst economic crisis under the leadership of its most extremely liberal politician, who has virtually no experience of federal politics. That is not an opportunity but a catastrophe.

These are frank, even ungracious, words: they have the one merit that, unlike almost everything else written today about Obama, they will not require to be eaten in the future. Barack Obama inauguration: this Emperor has no clothes, it will all end in tears :: Gerald Warner
