At a recent press conference answering a question about the Gulf oil spill, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs (who said calmly eighteen days ago, “I doubt this is the first such accident and it won’t be the last”) said ex-FEMA official Michael Brown and Fox News on the Neil Cavuto show had accused the Obama administration of deliberately setting the explosion. Of course, both of Gibb’s statements in their entirety and all of the Cavuto interview with Brown are posted on Fox News and no such encounter happened in the entire 5-6 minute interview. Brown, did however, talk about FEMA’s quick response to Katrina and the Coast Guard’s quick response to the BP explosion and commented that both Bush and Obama were a bit slow to move after sterling local action . . . the truth of all that can be seen if you go to FoxNews.com and look over the tape clips. Brown did say, that Obama would definitely use this as an excuse to stop drilling for oil. Gibbs also has talked about “keeping a boot on BP’s throat” just as they want to do to every business in the country. On the other side of the issue in several earlier investigations it appears that sex and drugs and huge campaign donations mark interactions between government and oil companies from time immemorial.
Not only is Chrysler going to be back for another bailout soon . . . but Freddy Mac just today intimated they’ll need more bailout money . . . changing the tune . . . .

The Los Angeles Times and Fox News were the only ones reporting Al Gore’s purchase of a $9 million mansion near Montecito, California linked above with some awesome pictures. Not his main residence, of course, right next to the rising oceans, but just one of his fleet of mansions. You remember when Al Gore was questioned point-blank by Tennessee Representative Marsha Blackburn, “Do you stand to profit in any way from the bill you’re supporting here?” With a straight-face Honest Al said, “Every penny that I have made, I have put right into a non-profit deal, Alliance For Climate Protection, to spread awareness of why we have to take on this challenge. And Congresswoman, if your, if, if you believe that the reason I have been working on this issue for 30 years is because of greed, you do not know me.” With a gross net worth of roughly $1 million in 2000 and a fleet of environmentally UNfriendly homes, Al, must be getting big money from somewhere.
Rajjpuut, however, DOES KNOW Honest Al . . . and does know about Al’s and Barack’s little scam called CCX (Chicago Climate Exchange) . . . and does know that the Cap and Trade bill that Gore was supporting would cost ordinary Americans a minimum of $220 Billion every year. More importantly, Al, Barack, Joel Rogers, the illustrious Mr. Sandor, several Goldman Sachs folks, John Ayers, the firm Goldman Sachs in its entirety and Gore’s own London based firm as well as several progressive foundations stand to profit greatly from the “Ten TRillion*** industry” created by cap and trade legislation.
The word “industry” is ill-advised, of course, since the “product” being sold is sheer blue sky . . . that is, literally NOthing is being sold as something and the jovial Joel Rogers is on video-tape saying that the environment would NOT be helped by cap and trade, not a bit. The same Mr. J. Rogers also said on video-tape that IF, by magic they were able to bring the entire U.S. economy to a halt, all power companies, all industry and all transportation -- zero production of pollutants, it would not help clear up the world’s situation very much . . . but that the real purpose of Cap and Trade was wealth redistribution. By the way, Mr. Obama has said several times and been recorded, “. . . under my Cap and Trade system, energy prices would necessarily skyrocket.”
Meanwhile, Joel Rogers, the mastermind, as well as General Electric (owner of the main news media sycophant, NBC, for all wondrous things Barack and green and social justice-correct) and Cisco would be among the huge winners along with the major union players AFLCIO and SEIU and surprisingly Fanny Mae (long story that). Cisco and GE have been pushing Obama’s green-agenda more than anyone else ever since getting in bed with the great man through monstrous campaign donations.
Within twelve days of the November 17, 2009 revelation of scientific hanky-panky, fraud and malpractice at the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at England’s East Anglia University known all over Europe as "Climate-Gate,"even the ultra-liberal London Times raked the climate-alarmists, global-warming extremists and the well-known scientists enabling their lies over the hottest of coals. Of course, five months later, Americans in general are still not broadly aware that they are and have been the subject of a well-manipulated hoax for over fourteen years . . . and who is to blame for all this American ignorance? 'T'is the progressive media which seldom chooses to print stories contrary to the progressive and extremist environmental agenda.
Real patriotism is clearly ostracized by that same media. Any comment against the TEA Party and conservative Americans is broadcast as a matter of course and never or perhaps virtually never is any actual supporting footage or evidence offered. Case in point, NYC Mayor Bloomberg shortly after the discovery of the car-bomb in Times Square said, “it could have been some right-wing extremists who don’t like the new Healthcare law.” Of course, he never apologized and the media never confronted him with updating of his stupid comments when the Pakistani connection was made.
“Feel-better politics” is the game of the day in the wake of the Times Square car bomb incident. We are being repeatedly and frequently told “we thwarted this attack . . .” when talking about the event. NONSENSE! Nothing was “thwarted,” the incompetence of the bomber saved us. The bomb’s “fuse or igniter” went off and failed to ignite and explode the car bomb. At that point, short of some drive-by gangs and random bullets sent into the whole mess, the bomb could NOT have gone off. The fact is simply this: “we got lucky, again.” We got lucky with the underwear bomber also. We did NOT get lucky with the Arkansas Recruiting Office killer; we did NOT get lucky with the Ft. Hood massacre and all four of those incidents should have clearly and obviously been on the radar and weren’t. “We got lucky” is not what Americans need to hear.
Apparently, U. S. government inspectors failed to notice that an “automatic burn system” required by law since 1994 to handle oil spills was not in place at the British Petroleum operation where the three recent horrific leaks took place. The idea was to burn off immediately any oil spills. Eight fire booms were required to be on-site ready to go. Responsible for those firebooms: the U.S. government, your U.S. government. For its part, British Petroleum also received safety exemptions from both the Bush and the Obama administration for faulty issues. Last one April 6, 2009. Get this, eight days after Press Secretary Gibbs characterized the explosion as a ho-hum matter, the U.S. government was searching around the globe for fire booms, even just one, please anyone!
The Greek unions are revolting angrily about that country’s financial debacle. The unions in Greece are all-powerful and shook down the system for benefits and boondoggles that would make even America’s United Auto Workers blush. Unfortunately, the International Monetary Fund and World Bank which are likely to bail out Greece are both significantly funded by, you guessed it, American tax dollars.
A Gay softball league has denied its championship trophy to a winning team because they were “not gay enough.” Apparently, two "straight" players were allowed on any team and the champs had its maximum two straights but also at least one acknowledged bi-sexual also. Supposedly a 25-member gay committee determined that the bi-sexual was NOT gay enough. Makes the old head spin, it does . . . .
As most thinking people know, capitalism has been proven over the centuries to be the most efficient system for improving the lives of any nation’s citizens. Capitalism is based upon a “meritocracy” which aims to raise the broad level of economic benefit across a society . . . enhanced opportunity for all, equal opportunity for all. Socialism is, however, based upon a sort of “misery loves company” EQUALITY by down-leveling those with money to the level of those without it. This inefficient method dramatically destroys the power of free markets to enhance overall economic conditions. Several tapes of progressive politicians acknowledging on video-tape that Obamacare wasn’t ever about health but only about government control for wealth redistribution were recently shown on the Glen Beck show.
Our NYC would-be car bomber was on a no-fly list; paid for his ticket with cash; had NO luggage; and looks somewhat Arabic. He still got on the plane and the plane got on the runway, before the FBI pulled him off . . . isn't that comforting?
Ya’all live long, strong and ornery,
*** Yes, that’s a taped remark by the “guilty” parties. And YES, Mr. Gore and Mr. Obama will profit greatly if Cap and Trade becomes law . . . and their $10 TRillion "industry" is created overnight from out of blue sky. Rajjpuut senses extreme conflict of interest from this corrupt twosome.
