Liberals again at war with Economics

Remember when the oil and gas prices were going up? Democrats claimed it's Big Oil's conspiracy to pump up their profits. Bush and Halliburton were giving a hand. Now that oil and gas prices are falling it's again Bush's "fault".

Maybe we have to think what is the root cause of all these lunatic conspiracy theories. It's because liberals are in open war against any kind of science, including Economics. They don't understand the principles of offer and demand. They don't understand price dynamics. These are concepts they can't grasp. And this is because they are all Marxist who don't believe in free economy and who have the strong conviction that the Government drives all the aspects of the economy. You think this is crazy? It's not. Remember in the spring, when the liberals wanted laws to control the gasoline prices? When they wanted a windfall tax on oil companies profits? Everything comes from their economy handbook - that's "Capital" by Marx. As long as that's their economic Bible, they'll never understand what a free economy is.

American policies in the Arab world

There's been a lot of talk in recent days about how fighting terror only produces more terror, adding to the old cliche that Muslims turn terrorist because of American policies in the Middle East. Now let's go back in history, to the 1990's, and let's see what the US policies were back then. US liberated Islamic Kuwait from secular Iraq and protected Saudi Arabia, birthplace of Islam, from the same enemy. America went to war along the Bosnian Muslims against their Catholic and Orthodox foes. America attacked Yugoslavia in order to protect Kosovo Muslims. American troops went to Macedonia to protect ethnic Muslims. (Actually, there still are thousands of American soldiers in Bosnia, Kosovo and Macedonia, and nobody is asking for a timetable for their return and a rapid redeployment).

Then, America suffered losses while providing relief to poor Muslims in Somalia. It's been giving out over 10 billion dollars in foreign aid every year to Muslim countries like Egypt, Jordan, Pakistan and even Afghanistani Taliban. And what was the Islamic reward for all this? It was the '93 World Trade Center, the Khobar Towers, the embassies in Africa, the USS Cole and ultimately the 9/11. After 9/11, America changed its attitude and reduced many of those Islamic support activities, and what is the result? No attack on America has occured ever since, outside of the war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Senator James Inhofe confirms my earlier posts

Yesterday, on September 25th, Senator James Inhofe literally mocked the global warming clowns from the Senate floor. He went item by item through issues that were repeatedly mentioned on Blogging Chris, including the rapidly changing trends in media coverage, which switched for times in the last century between threatening us with global cooling and global warming (please, read this article from Time, 1974). He also refers to a letter from 60 Canadian scientists who drew attention to global warming alarmists.

Here are some quotes from the Senator's speech:
"If, back in the mid-1990s, we knew what we know today about climate, Kyoto would almost certainly not exist"
From 1895 until the 1930’s the media pedaled a coming ice age. From the late 1920’s until the 1960’s they warned of global warming. From the 1950’s until the 1970’s they warned us again of a coming ice age. This makes modern global warming the fourth estate’s fourth attempt to promote opposing climate change fears during the last 100 years."
"In 2006, both the National Academy of Sciences and an independent researcher further refuted the foundation of the “hockey stick.”"
What the climate alarmists and their advocates in the media have continued to ignore is the fact that the Little Ice Age, which resulted in harsh winters which froze New York Harbor and caused untold deaths, ended about 1850. So trying to prove man-made global warming by comparing the well-known fact that today's temperatures are warmer than during the Little Ice Age is akin to comparing summer to winter to show a catastrophic temperature trend."
Alarmists fail to adequately explain why temperatures began warming at the end of the Little Ice Age in about 1850, long before man-made CO2 emissions could have impacted the climate. Then about 1940, just as man-made CO2 emissions rose sharply, the temperatures began a decline that lasted until the 1970’s, prompting the media and many scientists to fear a coming ice age. Let me repeat, temperatures got colder after C02 emissions exploded."
Global climate changes occur all the time due to natural causes and the human impact still remains impossible to distinguish from this natural ‘noise.’"
One of the ways alarmists have pounded this mantra of “consensus” on global warming into our pop culture is through the use of computer models which project future calamity. This threat is originating from the software installed on the hard drives of the publicity seeking climate modelers."
The history of the modern environmental movement is chock full of predictions of doom that never came true. We have all heard the dire predictions about the threat of overpopulation, resource scarcity, mass starvation, and the projected death of our oceans. None of these predictions came true."
The Kyoto Protocol is a lot of economic pain for no climate gain."
If we allow scientifically unfounded fears of global warming to influence policy makers to restrict future energy production and the creation of basic infrastructure in the developing world -- billions of people will continue to suffer."

Lessons learned from the Path to 9/11 movie

Here are some comments about ABC's Path to 9/11 movie. The movie didn't show anything we didn't know, but it's quite rare for the MSM to admit anything else than 'BUsh caused 9/11' or '9/11 was staged by the CIA and the Zionists'. These are some elements that everybody can learn (or remember) from watching this semi-documentary:
1. An FBI agent tells his arab informer: "The Justice Department won't hold anyone if you don't blow your cover to testify. People have a right to be protected from domestic spying". The arab guy responds: "Don't they have a right to be protected from terrorists who want to kill 250,000 americans in one day?"
2. Just take a look at Ramzi Yousef, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other terrorists, their depraved lifestyle while plotting to mass-murder thousands of innocent people. These are the people to whom the liberals want to give US Constitutional rights.
3. The second biggest threat to national security, next to the muslim terrorists, are the lawyers. It's because of them that most inteligence operations never got finalized and ultimately they are accomplice to the 9/11 mass murders.
4. Madeleine Albright (or, as friends call her, Halfbright) considered that, after Osama bin Laden's operatives attacked the US embassies in Africa, launching retaliatory strikes against him would be offensive to the sovereign state of Afghanistan and would raise numerous international implications. Apparently, she didn't find any implications in attacking Serbia, although that country never attacked America and never sent terrorist groups around the world.
5. A discussion between two fed-up FBI agents: "Do you think Osama has a mole at FBI?" "He doesn't need one, hes got all of us".
6. A laptop recovered by Fillipinos foiled the Bojinka plot. Another laptop captured from terrorists foiled the Millenium plot. US lawyers denied law enforcement to investigate arrested terrorist Zacharias Moussaoui's laptop, which led to the full execution of the 9/11 plot. I'm not wondering whether those lawyers can sleep at night, but I wonder why Justice didn't indict them for treason against national security?? It's only at that point that you understand those comments from the FBI agents at the beginning of the movie: "Thank God the Filippinos found that laptop. If it were here, it would have been out of touch".
7. It takes a semi-documentary to get a movie to put Arabs in the roles of terrorists. Although Muslim Arabs make up about 99.5% of terrorists in history, for the past 10 years baddies in movies are Russians, neo-Nazis, people with Eastern European accent, religious groups, Colombians, the US Government, snakes and so on. Combined, these groups have committed less than 0.1% of terrorist acts throughout history, yet Hollywood keeps picturing them as the culprits.
