Executive Orders are Redistributing American Wealth

It began with a guest appearance by then administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency Lisa P. Jackson on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart back in April of 2010. During their discussion she stated that they were waiting for the price of carbon to be established so that we could meet our commitments to the country and the entire world. What? What exactly are our commitments to the country and the entire world? Some research and digging into this seemingly innocuous statement led to some pretty interesting albeit disturbing discoveries.

On June 14, 1992 the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) was held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. At this conference, referred to as the Rio Earth Summit, the participants crafted a blueprint for the world, commonly known as Agenda 21. In its preamble, Agenda 21, Chapter 1 states:

“Humanity stands at a defining moment in history. We are confronted with a perpetuation of disparities between and within nations, a worsening of poverty, hunger, ill health and illiteracy, and the continuing deterioration of the ecosystems on which we depend for our well-being. However, integration of environment and development concerns and greater attention to them will lead to the fulfilment of basic needs, improved living standards for all, better protected and managed ecosystems and a safer, more prosperous future. No nation can achieve this on its own; but together we can – in a global partnership for sustainable development.”

In other words, the goal of the United Nations is social and economic justice through a redistribution of wealth scheme using the threat of anthropogenic (man-made) global warming or climate change to implement the market based solution of carbon emissions trading. The International Monetary Fund proposed a plan for a Green Fund to achieve this goal.

Following the Earth Summit President George H. W. Bush declared: “Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced – a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level.” signed by G.H. Bush, 1992

Despite pressure from the United Nations partners, U.S. delegates did not sign on to the convention.

On June 29, 1993 President Clinton issued Executive Order 12852 establishing the President’s Council on Sustainable Development as a result of the Rio Earth Summit in an effort to cooperate and implement the goals of Agenda 21. Our obligations to the world through a treaty never ratified by our Senate are being implemented through presidential executive orders.

During George W. Bush’s two terms as President he continued to further the goals of this United Nations agenda, following his father’s lead and continuing the work of President Clinton.

Why is all of this important? This ties in directly with the push for cap and trade legislation that has been floating around the House and Senate for many years. When Congress failed to pass a bill, on May 14, 2010 the E.P.A. unveiled their rules to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from the largest industrial facilities, with a phased in approach that began on January 1, 2011. As a result we are hearing about the many coal plants that are being forced to shut down in the next few years because they cannot meet these emissions reduction numbers, and it will be too expensive to retrofit their plants. President Obama announced new CAFÉ standards for automobiles that will require them to achieve 36.5 miles to the gallon by 2016 and 54.5 miles per gallon by the year 2025. The talking points are that this will help us achieve energy security and reduce our use of foreign oil. But the truth is that the United States has committed to the United Nations and its partners to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and these CAFÉ standards will have to be met in order to achieve this goal. The taxes on carbon dioxide emissions, along with other implemented market based solutions, are being funneled through the United Nations to other U.N. member countries.

When cap and trade legislation failed to pass, then Senator John Kerry (D-MA) said: “The Obama administration has again reminded Washington that if Congress won’t legislate, the EPA will regulate. Those who have spent years stalling need to understand: killing a Senate bill is no longer success. And if Congress won’t legislate a solution the EPA will regulate one, and it will come without the help to America’s business and consumers contained in the American Power Act.”   Senator Kerry replaced Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the Obama Administration, both tasked with the responsibility of redistributing the wealth of the American people to other developing United Nations member countries through USAID.

Americans must realize how much of our tax money is being sent overseas to meet our commitments to the global community under a treaty never ratified by this country but implemented through presidential executive orders and cabinet departments like the Environmental Protection Agency and the State Department.

Wind Turbines An Enormous Waste Of Taxpayer Money

A recent Siemens/Mid American Iowa Energy commercial touts Iowans embracing wind turbines as a successful renewable energy alternative to fossil fuels. Having researched wind turbines and wind energy production it is difficult to comprehend why we continue to throw good money at the staggering failure this source of energy has proven to be in its implementation.

An article in National Review Online, by Robert Bryce, reveals the Backlash against Big Wind Continues . When it comes to reporting on the failures of “green” energy alternatives, the main stream media and the environmental eco-terrorists remain suspiciously silent.  In a recent consumer complaint against wind turbines, the residents of New York’s Herkimer County have filed a lawsuit in Albany against “the Spanish electric utility Iberdrola, which is the second-largest wind-energy operator in the U.S.  The Herkimer County residents — all of whom live within a mile or so of the $200 million Hardscrabble Wind Power Project — are suing Iberdrola and a group of other companies because of the noise and disruption caused by the wind project.”

Reports have been increasing of complaints surrounding the noise caused by wind turbines.  Many residents wholeheartedly supported these wind turbines being utilized as an alternative energy source to provide electricity for their homes.  The reality, however, has led them to the courts to undo the damage caused by the turbines.  In addition to the many complaints of noise and disruption caused by the wind turbines, people are also discovering that the electric service provided by the turbines is not dependable as a constant source of energy.  A backup source utilizing coal or fossil fuel is necessary to guarantee dependability of service by the utilities.

People have also begun to realize a substantial loss of property values and inability to sell their homes due to their close proximity to the wind turbines.  Reports have also revealed that in some communities people have complained of headaches and seizures caused by the strobing effect of the sun shining through the rotating blades of the turbines at certain times of the day.  Many have had to shutter their homes completely to avoid this unsettling and unhealthy effect.

As reported in the Institute for Energy Research, in Great Britain wind turbines have proved to be undependable sources of electricity, to the point of absurdity.  In the winter, the wind turbines became so cold that they seized up.  Generators had to be brought to the turbines to heat them up and keep them turning, although they were not able to provide more energy than it took to run the generators that kept them warm.  In the spring, the turbines spun so wildly that the government had to pay the utility to shut them down.  There is no viable, cost-effective method to store energy once it is generated.

Energy produced by wind turbines has repeatedly failed to be a reliable source.  The Obama Administration, along with the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency must concede that wind power is a massive failure, and remove it from their “all of the above” energy plan.

Pat Condell: Hamas wants every Jew dead, in Israel and in the entire world

Hat tip Joshua Pundit – The current war in Israel is not between  the Israelis and Palestinians, it is radical Islamist terrorist group Hamas against the very existence of the Jewish people and the State of Israel.  Annihilating the Jewish state and the Jewish people is in the charter of Hamas.

The Middle East problem: A World Away Comes Close To Home

Palestinians protest Israel

This past Thursday Israel launched a ground offensive after days of enduring thousands of missiles being shot from Gaza into Israel by the terrorist group Hamas. Spurring the action was the discovery of thirteen Hamas militants exiting a tunnel leading from Gaza into Israel. Heavily armed, the militants planned on attacking and kidnapping or killing Jewish residents of a nearby kibbutz. The Israeli offensive, known as Operation Protective Edge, began after a series of events escalated the ongoing violence between Hamas and Israel.

On June 12th, three Israeli seminary students were kidnapped: 16 year old Yaakov Naftali Fraenkel, who held dual US-Israeli citizenship; 16 year old Gilad Shaer; and 19 year old Eyal Yifrah. Their bodies were discovered on June 30th reportedly having been shot soon after they were kidnapped.

Two days after their bodies were discovered 16 year old Mohammed Abu Khdeir was kidnapped and murdered by Israeli nationals in an apparent revenge attack. Protests during his funeral resulted in the arrest of a cousin of the murdered boy, 15 year old Tariq Abu Khdeir, whose beating by Israeli police was caught on videotape and caught international attention. The police claimed Khdeir was armed with a slingshot and was with protestors who were shooting stones at them. After receiving medical treatment and serving nine days of house arrest, late Wednesday evening Khdeir returned to Tampa where he lives with his family.

While many Americans seem unaware or apathetic to the escalation of violence and the ground war going on in Israel, protests have occurred in several cities, particularly where the Muslim community has established a physical and vocal presence. After Tariq’s return to Tampa, local CAIR Florida Executive Director Hassan Shibley took the opportunity Thursday morning to speak on local radio and television shows to condemn the treatment of Tariq by the Israeli police and against the ongoing persecution of Palestinians living in Israel.

On Friday in Temple Terrace, a once exclusive suburb of Tampa, a group of nearly 200 protestors gathered at the corner of Fowler Avenue and 52nd Street near the University of South Florida. The protestors were supporting the Hamas militants and denouncing the retaliatory actions of Israel. Palestinians and many in the Muslim faith refuse to acknowledge the legitimacy of the state of Israel. They call for the extermination of the Jewish people from every corner of the globe. Why is this not decried and condemned by our government as the hateful and dangerous anti-Semitism that it is? Is this any different than the Nazi propaganda of 1930s and 1940s Germany? Are we going to remain silent as these protests escalate?

Below is a short video from Dennis Prager explaining the Middle East conflict, which is really very simple: “One side wants the other dead.” The Palestinians and many other Muslims and Arabs refuse to recognize Israel as a state and refuse to live in peace with Israel. While Israel has agreed to give up valuable land for peace and welcomes a two state solution to the problem, it is impossible to negotiate with people who refuse to acknowledge its very right to exist.

In researching this article, it seems young Tariq Khdeir attends the Universal Academy of Florida, a pre-K through 12th grade Islamic school in Tampa. According to its website the school has been in existence since 1992 and states: Our MISSION at UAF is to teach our students the principles and practices of Islam and to prepare them for academic success and good citizenship.” The UAF philosophy states: “The child is taught Islam across the curriculum to produce intellectual thinkers with ALLAH’s Laws as a basis.” We have a very real and insidious indoctrination of young Muslims occurring in the United States, and it is gaining ground. A recent email from United Voices for America reports a chilling statistic – Islam is the second largest religion in 20 states in America. This organization and CAIR, the Council on American and Islamic Relations (an unindicted co-conspirator of the terrorist group Hamas) encourage young Muslims to get involved in American politics and train them to advocate for the Muslim community and run for elected office to advance their agenda.

In these private Islamic schools across the country, Muslim youth are being taught from pre-school through high school graduation the tenets of Islam and Islamic law, or shari’ah. If these schools are teaching Muslim children the tenets of the Quran and Allah’s Laws they are teaching hatred and intolerance of all non-Muslims. These beliefs can never coexist alongside the rule of law in America. We need to jealously guard our freedoms or we will surely lose them.
