Washington (PTI): US President Barack Obama has proposed a “truly global coalition”, including Asian giants India and China, to combat climate change and ensure collective energy security of the world.
Speaking by video to a climate conference in Los Angeles, Mr. Obama repeated his campaign vow to reduce climate-altering carbon dioxide emissions by 80 percent by 2050, and invest $150 billion in new energy-saving technologies.
“Now is the time to confront this challenge once and for all,” Mr. Obama said. “Delay is no longer an option. Denial is no longer an acceptable response.”
“I will make a commitment that Al Gore will be at the table and play a central part in us figuring out how we solve this problem. He’s somebody I talk to on a regular basis. I’m already consulting with him in terms of these issues, but climate change is real. It is something we have to deal with now, not 10 years from now, not 20 years from now.”
“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,” Obama said. “That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen,” he added.
WASHINGTON — The capital flew into a bit of a tizzy when, on his first full day in the White House, President Obama was photographed in the Oval Office without his suit jacket. There was, however, a logical explanation: Mr. Obama, who hates the cold, had cranked up the thermostat.
“He’s from Hawaii, O.K.?” said Mr. Obama’s senior adviser, David Axelrod, who occupies the small but strategically located office next door to his boss. “He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there.” (Of course, he hasn’t lived in Hawaii for 30 years. I guess the past 24 Chicago winters didn’t “take”.)
I’ve grown accustomed to the audacity of hypocrisy on the left that preach from the gospel of Global Warming Junk Science Theology. I don’t care about it anymore. What I do care about is that the Oval Office in the White House is once again, being treated with disrespect.
Following the precedent of the last Demi-god to occupy that office, Bill Clinton, Barry Soetoro is setting up a fraternity clubhouse best-place-to-bring-a-date atmosphere in the Oval Office. Maybe he’ll enjoy his own Sig-ar.
Note to Barry: The White House is not your house. It’s the people’s house. It’s on good-faith loan to you for the next four years. That loan can be rescinded.

A Facebook friend tagged me. That means I’m supposed to come up with 25 random things people don’t know about me.
Since my life is an open book (boring, but open), this is difficult. I am a simple person who has no use for self-aggrandizement. I have no use for bloggers who think everyone in the world wants to read how wonderful they are (Look, here’s a picture of me with a celebrity). I’ve decided instead to write about why my husband thinks I’m sexist.
I can count on one hand the number of women I’m close to. I’ve always preferred hanging out with men. The reason is simple. Men let go. By “let go”, I mean men have their say or punch the other one and whatever the argument was about is ended. Women drag out arguments until last rites and then they’ll manage to grab the priest’s vestment, pull him down to their mouth and use their last breath, “Father let me tell you what my former best friend said about me”…and recount some perceived insult from 40 years earlier as if it had happened the day before.
There are exceptions to everything. Maybe it’s a hormone imbalance (too much estrogen) or upbringing (“Mama’s special boy”), but some men are women. You meet him at a gathering and he casually mentions in passing how great people think he is, how important he is and how the reason he was invited is because of his celebrity status-a reason to make everyone else want to be there. Then he overhears you telling someone else at the party that you think he’s a pompous jackass. As life goes on, he makes an appearance at every party you attend to pull people aside and tell them about the pain and suffering you’ve inflicted on him. Of course the accounts become more grievous with each telling, “She told everyone, all over town…” Sometimes he switches to intimidation, “If I wasn’t such a good person, I’d sue that witch…” Life continues. Natural catastrophes, wars, elections, births, deaths. Forty years later, “Father, let me tell you…”
I get bored easily. That’s another reason I don’t hang around with hang wringing women or hand wringing men. I’ve learned over my 52 years to push the delete button of life on them. I can continue with my boring life w/o listening to their incessant yammering and they can pump themselves up at the next party, “Let me tell you how I made that bitch run like a scalded dog….” Everyone wins.
(For all those that are “so vain, I bet you think this song about you”…
TAG, YOU’RE IT)

OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT
THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President, Iran
Please forgive all the things the U.S. did that made you fund Islamic serial mass murder. I promise there will be no further criticism of your Holocaust denials or killing of members of the U.S. Armed Forces.
In a show of my everlasting friendship and support, I am dispatching my Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, to your wonderful country to present you with two nuclear reactors and a wad of U.S. currency that has been freshly printed just for you, as we have no money in our treasury. As you will recall, Sec. Rodham-Clinton’s husband extended the same courtesy to North Korea and I feel this is the least we can do for you. Since I have a much clearer understanding of the world than the Islamophobic neocons in the previous administration, I realize that you are building nuclear facilities only for electrical energy.
Very truly yours,
Barry Soetoro, President U.S.A.
P.S. If you are offended that a female will be delivering your gifts, please notify me and I will name the replacement of your choice. Also, please advise me if my gift-bearer should convert to the peaceful religion of Islam and I will arrange for the immediate conversion. I have Muslims in my family and I have lived in Muslim countries, you know.

The plan includes spending on what Obama called “shovel-ready” projects…
Mr. Obama maintains states have projects that are “shovel ready”.
…there is the debate over the definition of which projects are “shovel ready”.
It’s still stinking, but at least you were able to eliminate some of it, House Republicans and Blue Dog Democrats. THANK YOU FOR HAVING YOUR SHOVELS READY AND USING THEM!

After watching the You Tube video of Barry Soetoro’s first interview as POTUS with the motherland news agency Al-Arabiya, I read the full transcript on its web site. It’s interesting that the last part of the interview was left off the video.
Now I understand the meaning of Barry’s “A New Direction for America”. We must squat as a nation on our collective knees before those who slowly saw off the heads of “Infidels” and laughingly display them before a video camera; who strap bombs on themselves, their infants, their children and their mentally and physically handicapped and incinerate a busload of school children or shop full of patrons; who slit the throats of air craft personnel and forever change the landscape of the USA; who have said loudly and repeatedly for 233 YEARS they kill us because WE ARE NOT MUSLIM; and BEG FORGIVENESS because IT’S ALL THE FAULT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
I thought that the weak and feckless leadership of Jimmy the Jew Hater Carter and Bill the Serial Molester Clinton would remain unparalleled in the annals of American history. Clinton allowed Islamic serial mass murder of Americans to go unchecked and unpunished, but even he didn’t advocate for surrender and Jimmy Carter at least had the decency to wait until he was out of office before publicly decrying how the USA and Israel were to blame for every bad thing that’s ever happened in the world.
I naively thought that the small sect within the US that was filled with terrorism apologists, Marxists and anti-Americans were of no consequence in the grander scheme of things. But, while we weren’t watching, they were being heavily funded by “one world” billionaires, attaining tenure in our universities, usurping Christianity with Marxism under an umbrella of “Progressive Christianity” and getting one of their own elected President of the United States of America. This past election saw “them” win local, regional, state and national offices across the country.
In VA’s 5th district, Tom Perriello unseated Rep. Virgil Goode, a 35+ yr. representative. Perriello campaigned heavily on his “Christianity”. He bragged about how many “Christian” organizations he had founded. The Martinsville Bulletin campaigned on his behalf daily. As I have written about earlier, the owners of the Martinsville Bulletin, Robert and Elizabeth Haskell are strong advocates of tax-payer funded universal health care, elementary school sex education, tax-payer funded abortion on demand, restitution instead of incarceration of felons, gun bans, unilateral disarmament, open borders and illegal alien amnesty. They are also advocates of radical environmentalists and oppose all types of mining and believe in man-made global warming. They are advocates for children and proved it with a $150,000 grant to convicted domestic terrorist Bernadine Dohrn. A list of organizations the Haskells contribute millions of dollars to is here. Rep. Perriello showed his gratitude by appointing Elizabeth Haskell to his transition advisory committee. In short, the Haskells and Perriello are a match made in a Soviet Valhalla.
Perriello founded Res Publica and then teamed up with MoveOn.org to form Avaaz.org. As of a year ago when I last researched Perriello’s “Christian” organizations, the one and only reference I found to Christ was an article entitled “Reassembling the Body of Christ-Renewing Relations with Cuba”. In progressive Christianity, “sin” is owning private property and “salvation” comes from collectivism. Of course, Christ is left out of this “faith” and replaced with the State.
Here’s a little taste of the Soetoro/Perriello/Haskell world view of moral relativism:

Community Organizer in Chief Barry Soetoro promises the residents living in the slums of Chicago’s Southside that he would “fix” their housing problems. He and his slum lord partner profitted. Housing got worse. In return for his selfless generosity, the residents gave him votes. It was all about Barry.
Barry visited his impoverished relatives and villagers in Kenya where his (alleged) father grew up. He was doing research for a book about himself . He promised to always be there for them and help them. After he made a killing off his book, he moved his American family into this home with the help of his slum lord friend, Tony Rezko, who, unlike Barry, kept his word in the ongoing quid pro quo. It was all about Barry.
Barry’s Kenyan grandmother Sarah confidently told reporters before his visit: “When he comes down here, he will change the face of the school and, believe me, our poverty in Kogelo will be a thing of the past.” She doesn’t know it’s all about him.
Barry promised the people of the United States of America that he would give tax breaks to the “forgotten middle class” and “not really” welfare checks to those who don’t pay federal income taxes. In return for his promises, the American people loaned him this house.
A trail of broken promises led Barry here. It’s all about him.

There is a radical sector of the Democrat Party that doesn’t blame the U.S., Christianity, Capitalism or Israel for famines, volcanic eruptions and Islamic serial mass murder. They are so radical in fact, that they actually believe in homeland security and fiscal responsibility. They are called Blue Dogs.
In 2008 another radical came to the national stage, Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska). Gov. Palin, a Christian Conservative, showed the “Progressive” (Mao/Lenin/Marx wing) Democrats what the true definition of a “feminist” is:
She knows guns aren’t toys when she’s out with the boys.
While Rev. Wright blew hate, she was running a state.
She can bring home the bacon; fry it up in a pan.
And 5 children later, never, ever let Todd Palin forget he’s a man.
Now, in an act of completely disregarding aristocratic entitlement, Gov. Paterson of NY (of the Dirty Dog Democrats), has smeared NY Senate hopeful, Caroline Kennedy (from the Killer Dog Democrats) and chosen a real live feminist Blue Dog Democrat, Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand to replace Sen. Hillary Clinton (of the Lying Dog Democrats).
In keeping with the precedent of sliming independent thinking women, the “Progressive” Democrats have already started giving Sen. Gillibrand the Hillary/Sarah treatment of smearing, lying and rumor mongering.
Gov. Palin started the “you can’t touch this” precedent. Here’s hoping Sen. Gillibrand follows it.
Even a blind man can see that a strong, independent minded woman beats a pansy “progressive” any day of the week.

Hooray! The new progressive President of the United States of America, Barry Soetoro has ended that little annoying War on Terror.
Dana Priest announced this news today in the Washington Post. For those of you not familiar with Dana Priest, here’s some background.
She’s the won who originally put the words “war on terror” in quotes. She’s the one who won a Pulitzer Prize for exposing detention facilities on the soil of America’s allies which house innocent suicide bombing freedom fighters, arrested by the CIA of the Imperialist, terrorist United States of America. Possibly causing the torture, decapitation or murder of countless Americans and American allies by exposing classified intelligence information to the innocent jihadis is of no consequence to Mzzzz Priest because these supporters of the Bush doctrine of murdering imperialism are expendable.
Her husband is Bill Goodfellow of The Center for International Policy. For those of you not familiar with the CIP, it was founded by a group of old hippies who spit on Vietnam vets, Commies and Black Panthers. Today it’s a group of old and new Commies, tree-hugging radicals and terrorism apologists that push toward a one-world Communist government.

Washington Post Staff Writer

President Obama yesterday eliminated the most controversial tools employed by his predecessor against terrorism suspects. With the stroke of his pen, he effectively declared an end to the “war on terror,” as President George W. Bush had defined it,
signaling to the world that the reach of the U.S. government in battling its enemies will not be limitless.
Key components of the secret structure developed under Bush are being swept away: The military’s Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, facility, where the rights of habeas corpus and due process had been denied detainees, will close, and the CIA is now prohibited from maintaining its own overseas prisons. And in a broad swipe at the Bush administration’s lawyers, Obama nullified every legal order and opinion on interrogations issued by any lawyer in the executive branch after Sept. 11, 2001.
It was a swift and sudden end to an era that was slowly drawing to a close anyway, as public sentiment grew against perceived abuses of government power. The feisty debate over the tactics employed against al-Qaeda began more than six years ago as whispers among confidants with access to the nation’s most tightly held secrets. At the time, there was consensus in Congress and among the public that the United States would be attacked again and that government should do what was necessary to thwart the threat.Over the next 2 1/2 years, as Democrats gained power in Congress, as the violence in Iraq sapped public support for the president and as the fear of another terrorist attack receded, the debate over secret prisons, renditions and harsh interrogations grew louder. Presidential candidates felt comfortable to include these sensitive subjects in the debate on the efficiency of Bush’s war against terrorists, and even on the notion that it was still a war.
During his campaign and again in his inaugural address Tuesday, Obama used a different lexicon to describe operations to defeat terrorists. “As for our common defense, we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals,” he said. “. . . And for those who seek to advance their aims by inducing terror and slaughtering innocents, we say to you now that our spirit is stronger and cannot be broken; you cannot outlast us, and we will defeat you.”
Who won “Bush’s war on terror”, Mz. Priest?
More importantly, who will win Barry’s “operations to defeat terrorists”; fought with a “stronger spirit” rather than a bunker-busting bomb?
We shall see.
