Barack Obama, International Man of Action

Christmas Day 2009.
American resident Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a member of the national terrorist database, pays cash for a one-way ticket, saunters through TSA security and onto Northwest Airlines flight 253 and, while in midair, ignites a bomb on the flight filled with 290 people. The bomb does not explode as well as designed, passengers subdue Abdulmutallab, and Flight 253 lands in Detroit.

72 hours pass.

President Obama makes his first, highly anticipated public statement on the first al Qaida terrorist attack in the United States since 9/11: “As Americans we will never give into fear and division.” After a few more sentences, he walks away from the podium, leaving a collective sense of “is that it?” Then he sends Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to make the rounds of the Sunday news shows and report that Obama’s security measures “had worked” (though, one day later, Napolitano would report that they “had not worked”).

The President solemnly assures the American People “We will not rest until we find all who were involved.”

24 hours pass.

President Obama pulls the five iron from his bag, carefully planning his approach shot to the 8th hole green on Hawaii’s Luana Hills Country Club, when an aide breathlessly runs up to him with the phone. After a few words, POTUS instantly springs into action. Time is of the essence. As the New York Times describes the scene, “they suddenly jumped into the presidential motorcade and made a dramatic, high-speed departure.”

Had they found those involved in the terrorist attack? Was Obama delivering on his oath that he would not rest until those involved were captured? Not quite. It seems the son of a friend of the President had fallen off his surf board and scratched himself, though not requiring stitches.

It would be too easy merely to snicker at Obama’s massive overreaction to the latter scenario in inverse proportion to his massive under-reaction to the former. Nearly one year since his inauguration, we can safely conclude that this man has pathetically little appreciation for his office.

After all, Obama prostrates himself to foreign monarchs and despots, insults our loyal allies in England, abandons security defenses for budding democracies in Eastern Europe, and apologizes to, of all nations on Planet Earth, France (France!) for being arrogant!

Mel Brooks played the bumbling Governor Le Petomane in Blazing Saddles, but at least he provided comic relief and we were able to end the farce by walking out of the movie theater. Sadly, though, this isn’t a movie, and this theater has no exits, leastways not until 2012.

Leadership is an intangible quality difficult to describe, as human traits go. But no viable definition of leadership includes responding with flaccid indifference to the first domestic terror attack since 9/11 while simultaneously responding with lightning gusto to a stranger’s boo boo. Obama, the International Man of Action, needs better directing or scripting, lest he become President Le Petomane.

"Homoculturalism" infringes the Marriage Trademark

Giving homosexual bigots a badly needed political victory after a string of voter-led rejections in California, Maine, New York and New Jersey, the Washington D.C. City Council recently legalized gay “marriage” within its boundaries. What’s wrong with that you ask? Simple. Trademark infringement.

A trademark is a unique, recognizable name brand or turn of phrase used to sell a particular product. “Coca Cola” is one such famous trademark. Federal law protects the owner’s rights in the exclusive use of the brand indefinitely. The use of the brand is infringed if another company sells something using that brand without permission causing confusion among potential buyers.

Over the last thirty years, the activist “homoculturalist” (my term) agenda is one of demoralizing mainstream heterosexual culture by undermining traditional moral and cultural restraints on sexual behavior. The successful campaign has emboldened all forms of sexual displays – from public kissing to shacking up, from soft porn to S&M bondage, from cross dressing to gender mutations all in the name of “freedom from repression.” And yet they are not satisfied. We the People are not tolerant enough.

Homoculturalists now demand that the word “marriage” also apply to their brand of homosexual relationships. Except that the word is already defined. The marriage brand is already internationally known and well recognized as between a man and a woman.

The voters’ successful passage of Prop 8 in California defined “marriage” simply as between one man and one woman. That was all it said. In fact, Prop 8 didn’t do anything to the rights of gays or lesbians. It formally defined the social trademark called “marriage” as a heterosexual entity – a truth that everyone from the dawn of time commonly understood. Prop 8 therefore eliminated trademark confusion – there is no such thing as “gay marriage.”

And that makes homosexuals really irate. Their reaction to marriage is akin to Petrucchio’s demand of Kate in Shakespeare’s politically incorrect comedy “The Taming of the Shrew.” Radical homoculturalists insist that society figuratively say the sky is green in order to prove tolerance.

Homosexuals are free to enter into a similar union but they shouldn’t try to confuse society by usurping the “marriage” trademark. Do not redefine a word that already has a concrete meaning just because you want to. You are welcome to coin a new phrase – like “homoculturalist” -- just leave our word “marriage” alone. A little tolerance if you please.

Zippergate --

Zippergate -- (first published at Online Gold Coast Chronicle. Reprinted here.)

The Climategate global warming hoax is an international fraud perpetrated by unscrupulous scientists on a global scale. It certainly rates the coveted “number 1” position in greatest all time political lies.

What’s in the “number 2” position you ask? Obamacare? Nope. Watergate? Not even close. Zippergate takes the full monty. The media hoax perpetrated by politicians and public figures and their backers starting with Kennedy’s Marilyn Monroe cover up, to Clinton’s Lewinsky cigar trade through a myriad of senators, congressmen, and public figures all caught cheating and finally culminating in Tiger Woods’ porn to pancakes smorgasbord.

Zippergate offends American women across the political spectrum. What is it with these guys? Why can’t these public figures keep their marital vows? One might excuse and pity Clinton since his wife is such a battle ax. But how in the world can anyone, male or female for that matter, justify Tiger Woods’ conquests? American women admire Mrs. Woods’ beauty and figure. Who wouldn’t? Woods’ infidelity is unsettling because it illustrates women’s deepest fear - - that no matter how beautiful or svelt a woman keeps herself, her husband is going to cheat anyway.

That sense of absolute marital betrayal is now part of the public political debate, in part thanks to Woods and Climategate. If so many scientists can lie so convincingly for so many years with so many willing media allies to create a global warming hoax, and if such a huge sports icon can effectively whitewash his true image then how can we ill-informed voters trust any politician’s public image?

Obama’s romance of the public has been exposed as a fraud. He’s not for “transparency in government.” He’s not for real solutions to economic problems. He’s a fraud, a radical leftist who is whispering sweet “hope and change” nothings in Americans’ ears while quietly stealing the next generation’s earnings by running up the national debt with his socialist takeover of banks, car companies, healthcare and possibly newspapers.

Too many politicians have betrayed their electoral vows to their spouse, the American voter. And what’s worse is that the media, like some two-faced desperate housewife, is in bed with these political liars and covering up for their indiscretions. The media was once the German Shepherd (pit bull?) of politics, sniffing out lies and warning its rightful master, the American public, when things seemed amiss. But no more. The 95% leftist mainstream media has been caught in bed with Woods, Obama and the rest all in attempt to mislead us by covering up the true facts and replacing them with image.

And we mothers, whose daily focus is the price of peanut butter, are the last to know the truth. Like Mrs. Woods, Americans have had it with the politician’s cheating. We want candidates whose private lives are is the same as their public presentation – note that I didn’t say we wanted pure immaculate virginal politicians. No we just want the truth. We’ll accept sins and transgressions so long as we know about it in advance of the political marriage called election day. Instead of choosing our own mates, the media is giving us arranged marriages, timely revealing sordid details about one party’s candidate days before the election while covering up scandal in the other side’s camp. Freedom of choice really takes on a different meaning now. And we women are absolutely sick of the cheating game.

So fair warning all you political cheats and media hacks. We’re looking for the five iron in time for November 2, 2010.

Copenhagen: Obama's Ascension

I am now an online columnist. My article below first appeared in the Online News Gold Coast Chroincle on Nov. 30, 2009 entitled "Climategate: Where Politics and Religion Unite." Check my "blog links" section for Gold Coast Chronicle.

Anthropogenic, or manmade, global warming is not open to debate. High Priest Al Gore said so. And how do we know this? Because the climatology scriptures (peer review journals) proved it. If warming skeptics had legitimate claims, so the argument goes, then naturally their arguments and supporting data would appear in such journals – a persuasive argument, ably assisted by the fact that global warming zealots controlled those journals.

Problem is, at least one such peer review journal broke ranks *gasp* and, in Galilean fashion, began publishing articles questioning "The True Faith" of climatology. Heresy!

How does the Church of Global Warming deal with heresy? Well, burning at the stake would impose too large of a carbon footprint, so instead they resort to the age-old traditional method of shunning. Enter “Climategate,” the recent disclosure of certain East Anglia emails (East Anglia is, in short, the Vatican of global warming theology, uh, research), and some of the disclosed emails provide insight into the secretive workings of the Brotherhood of Climatologists.

One March 2003 email from Michael Mann of Pennsylvania State University described in great candor how to shun, and thereby silence and professionally destroy, global warming skeptics:

"This was the danger of always criticising the skeptics for not publishing in the "peer-reviewed literature." Obviously, they found a solution to that–take over a journal! So what do we do about this? I think we have to stop considering “Climate Research” [the name of the journal in question] as a legitimate peer-reviewed journal. Perhaps we should encourage our colleagues in the climate research community to no longer submit to, or cite papers in, this journal. We would also need to consider what we tell or request of our more reasonable colleagues who currently sit on the editorial board…What do others think?"

No subtlety here. But then, religious zealotry rarely is.

As the leaked East Anglia emails prove, it is plain for the world to see the fraud behind the proselytizing of man-made global warming theory. Reflecting this dirty little secret, the Church even re-branded its dogma from “global warming” to “climate change” to provide necessary linguistic cover for the recent evidence that global temperatures have stabilized or dropped. But don’t hold your breath for the science-priests of Global Warming to recant. After all, at stake are their careers, reputations, hundreds of billions of dollars in research grants, and frequent junkets to five-star resorts in Aspen, Bahamas and Cortina for “climate conferences.” Heaven forbid!

Besides, Climategate is the biggest “crisis” manufactured by statists to date. And it’s working. Statists seek power and control over the individual, and have successfully attack DDT, fluorocarbons, incandescent light bulbs, herbicides that reduce crop blight, genetically modified crop seed that would allow starving nations to feed themselves, and many other wonderful inventions, all under the pretext of environmentalism.

The Sin of Industrialism, spread by Capitalist Demons, threatens the world to burn in the eternal fire of catastrophic global warming. Time to repent. Time to exorcise those Demons. Time for the industrial world to fast and give alms. Enter Copenhagen. In less than 10 days, the Teleprompter President heads to Copenhagen, ostensibly to cheer on the Copenhagen climate treaty, but in reality only to affirm the 21st century scientific equivalent of the Ptolemaic geocentric universe.

The Copenhagen treaty: What will it require of signatories? Here is a summary by Lord Christopher Monckton, former science advisor to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher:

“And what it says is this, that a world government is going to be created. The word 'government' actually appears as the first of three purposes of the new entity. The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to third world countries, in satisfaction of what is called, coyly, 'climate debt' – because we’ve been burning CO2 and they haven’t. We’ve been screwing up the climate and they haven’t. And the third purpose of this new entity, this government, is enforcement.… "

"And the trouble is this; if that treaty is signed, if your Constitution says that it takes precedence over your Constitution (sic), and you can’t resign from that treaty unless you get agreement from all the other state parties – And because you’ll be the biggest paying country, they’re not going to let you out of it. "

"So, thank you, America. You were the beacon of freedom to the world. It is a privilege merely to stand on this soil of freedom while it is still free. But, in the next few weeks, unless you stop it, your president will sign your freedom, your democracy, and your prosperity away forever. And neither you nor any subsequent government you may elect will have any power whatsoever to take it back. That is how serious it is. I’ve read the treaty. I’ve seen this stuff about [world] government and climate debt and enforcement. They are going to do this to you whether you like it or not."

See: (emphasis added). For full text of the Treaty, see:

Never mind that climate change data has been doctored by fraudulent scientists who fudged data to support pre-conceived conclusions. Never mind the concerted efforts by those same scientific frauds to repress research discounting mankind’s effect on the temperature of the earth. None of that matters because the real reason for all of this was political in nature – to create a cult of climatology so as to coerce the masses into giving up their God-given freedoms willingly.

And we’re coming too late to the party. Our elected representatives rarely listen to us. Millions marched on Washington this summer. Just last month as many as 40,000 marched to Washington to protest. And still our government does not heed us.

Many Americans know about the healthcare bill. Far fewer people know about this fraud and the stunning ramifications for the U.S. if Obama seeks ratification of this treaty. Just like healthcare, Obama will slip this by an economically shell-shocked population in the nick of time, before they wake and see what the thief has stolen from them in the middle of the night.

This is Obama’s true Ascension: sacrificing the United States’ wealth to save the third world on Copenhagen’s altar of Climatology in atonement for Original carbon-based Sin. There’s one question still unanswered: will the Climate Messiah allot room on Air Force One for the Most Reverend Al Gore to join him as the world witnesses Obama’s Ascension into the glory of Copenhagen?

Naaah. Why share the photo op?
