Never mind all the climate science blather. Never mind Al Gore’s debunked doomsday histrionics, the chaos, the maudlin crying jags, and the elephant in the room.
All you have to know about the climate treaty in Copenhagen to make an assessment is this, via Andrew Bolt:
These maniacs in Copenhagen are voting on your future:
President Chavez brought the house down.
When he said the process in Copenhagen was “not democratic, it is not inclusive, but isn’t that the reality of our world, the world is really and imperial dictatorship…down with imperial dictatorships” he got a rousing round of applause.
When he said there was a “silent and terrible ghost in the room” and that ghost was called capitalism, the applause was deafening.
But then he wound up to his grand conclusion – 20 minutes after his 5 minute speaking time was supposed to have ended and after quoting everyone from Karl Marx to Jesus Christ – “our revolution seeks to help all people…socialism, the other ghost that is probably wandering around this room, that’s the way to save the planet, capitalism is the road to hell….let’s fight against capitalism and make it obey us.” He won a standing ovation.
And yes, tragically, (for us), the President of the United States is of like mind with these loons. What more, they are relying on him to swoop into Copenhagen and heal the divisions that threaten to wreck any chances of an agreement. Obama is their hope for the change – The One who will fulfill their Utopian dreams.
Remember when we had a President who eschewed such nonsense?

If the reports are true that the Obama administration tried using extortion to pass ObamaCare by threatening to shut down Offutt Air Force base if Senator Ben Nelson didn’t vote for the bill….then there needs to be some kind of reckoning. I don’t think we’ve ever seen anything this despicable in American politics.
Michael Goldfarb, (an original source for this story) reports at the Weekly Standard, that 20 Republican Senators are trying to get to the bottom of it.
Twenty Republican senators have requested that the Senate Armed Services Committee launch an investigation into reports that the Obama White House threatened to close Nebraska’s Offutt Air Force base unless Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson fell into line on health care. Those reports first appeared on this blog. In the letter to Senators Levin and McCain, the committee chairman and ranking member, the 20 ask that “a hearing be held as to whether the BRAC process has been compromised.”
Meanwhile, both Nelson and the White House strenuously deny the allegation. A statement from White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer asserts “This rumor is absolutely false, as the people spreading it well know. This is nothing but a cynical, crass political game that is designed to maintain the status quo. Let’s be clear: the people spreading these falsehoods think nothing is wrong with a system under which families and businesses continue to bear the brunt of skyrocketing costs, insurance companies are allowed to discriminate and drop at will, and thousands of Americans lose their coverage every single day.”
They protest a little too much. I do not know this story is “absolutely false.” To the contrary, I’m confident it’s true. Twenty senators are now calling for an investigation, and each is presumably pretty well sourced in the Senate. If the charges are “absolutely false,” maybe the White House will encourage Senate Democrats to call this Republican bluff. I won’t hold my breath.
That’s right, the Obama administration should welcome an investigation if they have nothing to hide. Yeah, given Obama’s history, I’m not going to hold my breath either.
