The Obama administration refuses to “label” our ISIS conflict a “war” just as it refuses to call Putin’s invasion of the Ukraine an “invasion.” The world is threatened not by Islamic jihadists but by a “global network of extremists.” But “extremists” – in Obama’s lexicon – are Tea Party members.
Obama claims Republicans are waging a “war on women” while his colleagues admit to waging a “war on coal.” James Carville’s 1990s “war room” permeates the entire federal government.
But Obama refuses to fight America’s actual enemies (not just enemies of his state).
Finally, Obama has declared war – on global warming!
Patrick J. Michaels of the Cato Institute writes, “The fact of the matter is that Mr. Obama is obsessed with climate change, even as the voters of this country, who speak through their legislatures, most assuredly are not.”
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asserts, “Climate change is the most consequential, urgent, sweeping collection of challenges we face (9/4/14).”
Even more so than ISIS? Many far left environmental zealots concur with Clinton’s assessment.
Current Secretary of State John Kerry certainly agrees. Even as the world was becoming engulfed in flames and ISIS was gaining strength, Kerry claimed, “The bottom line is this: it is the same thing with climate change. In a sense, climate change can now be considered another weapon of mass destruction, perhaps even the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction (2/16/14).”
Global warming = weapon of mass destruction?
Employing apocalyptic language to induce fear is a common Orwellian strategy used by Obama, Clinton, Kerry, and the reigning godfather of Chicken Little fear-mongering – Al Gore.
Just last week, with the beheadings of two American journalists fresh in our minds, Kerry quoted Scripture to urge Americans to join with Muslims to combat our common foe: global warming. Kerry said, “Confronting climate change is, in the long run, one of the greatest challenges that we face, and you can see this duty or responsibility laid down in scriptures, clearly, beginning in Genesis (9/3/14).”
It sounds like Kerry and Clinton shared notes.
But science is not on their side. The American people have little concern over the apocalyptic doom-saying prophesied by the likes of Kerry and Clinton. But Americans are concerned about the extravagant measures being taken to solve an environmental myth, and they are even more concerned about the real enemies threatening and attacking America.
Instead of placating your environmentalist base (thereby squandering are dwindling resources and distracting us from our real enemies), Mr. President, why not put the needs of America first? America first! What a concept!
Update: Since publishing this column, almost daily reports in the media demonstrate the fraudulent nature of the global warming myth, even as the Obama White House escalates its promotion of that hoax. But the global warming deniers – those Obama calls unpatriotic and others want put in jail – are being proven right every day.
