Reason separates man from animals and politicians

by Mustang

Founded in 1968 at the Academia den Lincei (the Lincean Academy), the so-called Club of Rome is an association of 100 full members from among former and current heads of state, high ranking members of government, United Nations officials, diplomats, scientists, economists, and business leaders from around the world.  Today, the Club of Rome is based in Winterthur, Switzerland.

Stop laughing — it matters.

One of its founders was a gentleman named Alexander King (1909-2007), a British chemist and a pioneer of the so-called sustainable movement.  King’s concern was the impact upon the environment of “unprecedented economic growth.”  He argues that economic growth is a good thing, but too much of it has a deleterious effect on the environment.  To my mind, such a claim seems wholly sensible.  The problem, on this one issue, is the answer to the question, “Who gets to ‘regulate’ the global economy to mitigate its environmental impact?”

The real subject is the development and use of the chemical with the rather ridiculous sounding name Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane.  With any name exceeding the number of letters in the alphabet, it seems prudent to shorten it to DDT.  One may recall that DDT was developed as a cure for insects known to cause serious illness and death among human beings.  It was developed in the 1930s, and came into use during World War II.  In 1962, Rachel Carson’s book “Silent Spring” was able to persuade John F. Kennedy to ban the product owing to her claim of birth defects to humans and the extinction of wildlife.

Alexander King (left) (1987)

Dr. Alexander King might have agreed with Carson to ban the product, but for entirely different reasons.  According to King in 1990, “My own doubts came when DDT was introduced for civilian use.  In Guyana, within two years, it had almost eliminated malaria — but at the same time, the birth rate had doubled.  So my chief quarrel with DDT in hindsight is that it has greatly added to the population problem.”

Dr. King was a chemist.  Rachel Carson had a Master’s Degree in Zoology.  I make this point because while we may give credit to her work as an undersea biologist, she was out of her depth in matters of pesticides.  Her only practical work beyond university study, never quite making it to a doctoral level, was that she worked for the U. S. Bureau of Fisheries.

Why this matters (primarily to me, I suppose) is that I recently read a post at Pacific Paratrooper, whom I admire for her work respecting World War II, wherein G. P. Cox told the story of DDT’s development and how it materially served the interests of our combat troops in protecting them from virulent illnesses and diseases caused by insects.  While reading this article, I remembered as a youngster the DDT truck making a pass through our neighborhood on base housing at Camp Pendleton, California in 1952-53.

One commenter at Pacific Paratrooper, self-identifying at Jet Eliot, wrote, “I enjoyed this essay, GP, reading how the malaria and insects were dealt with in war times. A sign of the times, they created what they thought was a great thing to remedy their problems. Fortunately Rachel Carson and others were able to demand deeper investigation into these lethal chemicals and their detrimental effects on humans and the planet. We have pelicans and bald eagles and numerous other wildlife species now, all these years later, that were close to extinction due to DDT. And we are the generations of humans who have developed and benefitted from the curtailment of these strong chemicals. We live and learn, and fortunately our species continues.”

Unfortunately, Ms. Eliot’s argument is greatly contested in the scientific community, but it is a lie told so often that claims that DDT is harmful to humans is generally accepted as true.  It is what we’ve been told for the past 60 years.  Scientists today assure us that the lie is actually a damn lie.  Carson’s claim, they say, was based on emotion and junk science, and if this were not bad enough, the cost of such claims have been, quite literally, millions of lives.  This was the point made by Dr. King — whose only complaint was that DDT so effectively saved lives that we ended up having too many people on planet earth.

Of course, there a few issues with DDT that most people are unaware of.  For example, there is an issue with how the US Agency for International Development (USAID) went about forcing poor countries to stop using the product.  Essentially, USAID refused to fund any international projects that used DDT.  Around the world, poor countries were told that if they continued to use DDT, then they wouldn’t get any more monetary aid from the United States.  So, because many of these regimes were corrupt and put a higher value on access to the American people’s money than they did on the lives of their own citizens, they stopped using DDT.

Another issue is/was, the question of whose lives were saved through the use of DDT — mostly people of color living within the third and fourth world countries.  Since the suspension of the use of DDT (we are told), more than 100 million people have died in Africa alone due to  malaria (and other insect-borne diseases).  Apparently, the lives of one-hundred-million people do not matter quite as much if they have a darker complexion than the rest of us.

A third (but not last) issue is that Rachel Carson’s science was so fraudulent and distorted that one’s only rational conclusion is that she may rank along with Margaret Sanger as one of humanity’s greatest monsters, far above Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler.

Modern scientists now tell us that the tragic irony of the tens of millions of deaths attributed to the banning of DDT is that all central claims made by Carson (and others) are patently false.  For example, in order to cause cancerous tumors in mice, the animal would have to be exposed to DDT 10 times its body weight over an extended period of time.  There is, today, no correlation of Carson’s data.  According to the World Health Organization, numerous studies have failed to show ‘any convincing evidence’ of patterns of associations between DDT and cancer.  A US study corroborated the WHO findings.

Carson claimed that the effect of DDT on wild birds was so severe that one day, all the birds on earth would be dead and we would experience the “silent spring.”  It was pure poppycock.  Scientific data reflects that between 1941 and 1960, when DDT was regularly used to thwart infectious diseases from insects, bird populations actually quadrupled.  Among Robins, whom Carson specifically singled out, the population of these animals between 1941-60 increased twelve-fold.

Worse than this was Carson’s (and Charles Wurster’s) claim that DDT was dangerous to phytoplankton in sea water.  Wurster, co-founder of the Environmental Defense Fund, conducted his experiments in salted water with alcohol added, not sea water.  So again, the science was skewed from the beginning.  Again, more than 100 million people have died because we stopped using DDT.

So far, at least, I suspect there may not be much interest in this topic, especially since malaria is not a problem most Americans have to deal with.  Dengue fever is, though.  But here’s the real point of this tirade.

If we cannot trust science on a matter such as DDT, then how can we have confidence in any other scientific product — where there are agendas to pursue.  Shall we, then, blindly trust science on matters that DO affect us — such as immunology and COVID-19, climate change as a man-caused phenomena, or that the oceans will soon cover all of our coastal cities?

You tell me.  Whom do we believe — and why?

Bill Gates: ‘Let’s block out the sun’ – spends big bucks

Bill Gates who apparently is willing to risk life on earth as we know it, and is apparently all set to spend his gazillion buckeroos in an elaborate scheme to change life or otherwise eliminate it all together for the sake of the earth. Anyway, he has been complaining that there are far far too many humans here anyway so what the heck. Who cares if there is a disaster? Here tis:

The plan sounds like science fiction — but could be fact within a decade; every day more than 800 giant aircraft would lift millions of tonnes of chalk dust to a height of 12 miles above the Earth’s surface and then sprinkle the lot high around the stratosphere.

In theory, the airborne dust would create a gigantic sunshade, reflecting some of the Sun’s rays and heat back into space, dimming those that get through and so protecting Earth from the worsening ravages of climate warming.

This is not the crackpot plan of a garden-shed inventor. The project is being funded by billionaire and Microsoft founder Bill Gates and pioneered by scientists at Harvard University.

Indeed, the plans are so well advanced that the initial ‘sky-clouding’ experiments were meant to have begun months ago.

SCoPEx is, however, on hold, amid fears that it could trigger a disastrous series of chain reactions, creating climate havoc in the form of serious droughts and hurricanes, and bring death to millions of people around the world.

One of the Harvard team’s directors, Lizzie Burns, admits: ‘Our idea is terrifying… But so is climate change.’ An advisory panel of independent experts is to assess all the possible risks associated with it.

Want to know how he is going to do it?

The Economist alarmed that poor people are eating more meat around the world

Poor people eating more meat means it is ‘bad news for the environment.’ That means they will live longer, healthier lives. More global warming. Poor people. They need to start thinking of the environment instead of survival and what not.

Usually progressive liberalism masks its racism better than this…Should we just gas them?

You used to do the ‘enough of me, too much of you’ better.

The Economist

More poor people are eating meat around the world. That means they will live longer, healthier lives, but it is bad news for the environment  https://econ.st/2NfwKWd

We must teach them the wonders of wokeness, such that they seek out only avocado toast and pumpkin spice latte.

If only they could purchase carbon offsets and other indulgences, like their betters in the first world do.

Wokeness gets closer and closer to genocide. Those damn poor people screwing up the environment by living.

There is nothing new about eugenics.

Nothing new at all.

A reminder about what Progressivism is all about.

George Bernard Shaw: Justify Your Existence

The Smithsonian honored one of the 20th century’s most notorious eugenics proponents, Margaret Sanger. American Life League exposes Sanger’s racist plan to create a “master race.” Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood and Progressives. All in it together. Here are the words of Sanger.

Conclusion: Left-wing environmentalism is an ideology harmful to poor people.

Progressivism ideology is harmful to poor people.

Bloomberg – AG Ellison Minnesota corruption scandal

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg and other activist donors are paying for their own attorneys to work inside state attorney general offices and governor’s offices.They are there to push climate change litigation.

How could this possibly be legal? Last month I reported on New York.

NY AG Office Asks for Ethic Opinion after revealed ‘hired’ Bloomberg operatives

“We know NY OAG only sought an ethics opinion over 13 months after promising Bloomberg’s group there were no ethics issues, and 8 months after having already brought them on board,”

How does one “hire” someone if that “someone” is being paid for by someone else? How about “plant” someone inside an office? What is even worse, that plant is inside an Attorney General’s office? That person planting is none other than former Mayor Bloomberg and this is not the first office he has done this with.

How many other AG offices are being used by outside groups to politicize their points of view and carry out their agenda?

That was the question I asked.

But of course and no surprise to my question. It would be Minnesota and AG Keith Ellison first added to the list.

A group called Energy Policy Advocates requested documents relating to this scheme from the office of Minnesota’s Attorney General, Keith Ellison. EPA’s requests were made pursuant to Minnesota’s broad Government Data Practices Act. The requests were narrowly tailored to ask for documents relating to 1) correspondence between the AG’s office and a plaintiffs’ law firm, and 2) correspondence between the AG’s Office and a specific individual in another state who was recruiting attorneys general to join Bloomberg’s scheme. The Minnesota Attorney General replied that there are no such documents, or, if there are, they are privileged and will not be produced.

So EPA sued, represented by a brand new public interest law firm called the Upper Midwest Law Center

Reported by the Star Tribune. The Strib’s story, mediocre at best, is most notable because it flushes out Keith Ellison’s admission that Minnesota is indeed participating in the Bloomberg scam. Ellison didn’t have much choice: there is a Linked In page by a lawyer who wrote:

I am off on a new adventure as a Fellow with the NYU School of Law’s State Impact Center. I will be embedded with the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office as an Environmental Litigator and Special Assistant Attorney General.

So much for any claim that there are no documents linking the Minnesota Attorney General to Bloomberg’s corrupt scheme, unless this was all arranged via smoke signals.

Bloomberg’s scheme is corrupt, poses inevitable conflicts of interest, and in some states is flatly illegal.

This video by the Clear Energy Alliance presents a good summary of the scandal:

Chris Horner spent more than two years producing two reports for the Competitive Enterprise Institute exposing this scheme and CEA president Mark Mathis showcases the money trail.

NY AG Office Asks for Ethic Opinion after revealed ‘hired’ Bloomberg operatives

How does one “hire” someone if that “someone” is being paid for by someone else? How about “plant” someone inside an office? What is even worse, that plant is inside an Attorney General’s office? That person planting is none other than former Mayor Bloomberg and this is not the first office is has done this with. How many other AG offices are being used by outside groups to politicize their points of view and carry out their agenda?

New York regulators asked an ethics panel to investigate potential conflicts of interest claims after the attorney general’s office hired an attorney paid for by former mayor-turned-environmentalist billionaire Michael Bloomberg.

“We know NY OAG only sought an ethics opinion over 13 months after promising Bloomberg’s group there were no ethics issues, and 8 months after having already brought them on board,”

Michael Bloomberg

The request was sent the same day that a government watchdog group filed an open records request about the hiring of two Bloomberg-funded attorneys into the attorney general’s office. Bloomberg has turned his attention to environmental issues, gun control, and anti-tobacco regulations since leaving office.

The former New York City mayor’s most ambitious project has been funding the “State Energy and Environmental Impact Center” (SEEIC) at the New York University School of Law. The program trains and deploys attorneys to work in state attorney general offices around the country.

Its selling point is the fact that it would pay the salaries of all new hires at no cost to taxpayers.

Bloomberg battalion working out of AG’s office

Boston HeraldJun 4, 2019
Welcome to Massachusetts: the best justice system money can buy. And in Attorney General Maura Healey’s office, they mean that literally.

Right now, there are two lawyers working in Healy’s office as “Special Assistant Attorneys General,” with all the power that confers. But they’re not working for we, the people. Instead, their employer — the guy who writes their paychecks — is a private citizen. And his name is Michael Bloomberg.

They’re working cases in Boston, but they’re getting paid out of New York City.

What the what, you ask? It’s called the State Energy and Environmental Impact Center and since 2017, they’ve been putting private attorneys, paid for with private, green-activist dollars, inside Democrat-controlled state attorneys general offices around the country. Their stated goal is “advancing progressive clean energy, climate change, and environmental legal positions.”

Michael Bloomberg started the project with a $6 million check and — shocker! — these lawyers are using our public AG’s office to promote Bloomberg’s green political agenda. How is that legal, you ask? Welcome to Massachusetts.

Keep in mind Soros has been stacking D.A. races throughout the country.

George Soros long fingers in Chicago and DA races, State Secretaries of State

George Soros, the billionaire of progressive-slash-socialist and globalist causes the world over, has been busy buying his way into local district attorney campaigns in the United States. He has found he can get a lot of bang for his bucks in these races.

Then just plant attorneys of whatever persuasion to litigate your point of view against your adversaries. Not just civil litigation but now you can charge criminality.

A corrupt judicial system is/will be the final nail for our republic.

AZ Democrat: I Want My Generation to Kill Golf, ‘Self-Interested Parts of the Agriculture’ Industry

Something for a Saturday to remind us just how far left the left can go. I was looking forward  to sitting down and enjoying watching a round or two of golf on the golf channel this weekend.

Next weekend, Tiger Woods will be back at it, and we will see if he can do a repeat and continue his winning streak. I have many happy memories of a round of golf with my father on a Saturday. Enjoy it while you can.

Democratic state senator Juan Mendez (Ariz.) on Monday called for Arizona to adopt provisions of the Green New Deal because he wants to be “part of the generation that kills golf” and the “greedy parts of the agriculture business industry.”

Mendez participated in a press conference on “Earth Day” with Democrats and environmental activists, where he touted his support for the Green New Deal.

“I’d rather be part of the generation that kills golf and self-interested, greedy parts of the agriculture business industry than the one that killed the planet,” Mendez said. “I have no concern for just one industry’s future. I’m here to protect our shared future, and that does not have to include alfalfa just because it’s safe market choice and has high yields.”

The Green New Deal is a 14-page economic stimulus resolution that was released in February by self-described democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D., Mass.) that aims to fight income inequality and climate change. The American Action Forum study offered an estimate in February of the Green New Deal costing up to $94.4 trillion, or over $600,000 per household in the United States.

Environmental Lawyers Target American Toilet Paper


Interesting isn’t it? One of the first “tells” in a declining democratic country is apparently the need to restrict by price or by other means diminish access to toilet paper. Venezuela a case in point.

Chicago Tribune

After socialists run out of other people’s money, the people eventually run out of something almost as precious as money:

It’s happening right now in Venezuela, once a socialist, oil-rich paradise and land of great shortstops. But Venezuela is fast becoming a thoroughly failed state.

Let’s just hope it doesn’t happen here. A nation without toilet paper is a nation ungovernable. The social chaos, the whining, the aggravation — not to mention the horror of alternative methods, like cobs of corn — would just drive people insane.


Now they are coming for our toilet paper. We are greedy users. And we don’t use the right kind.

Furthermore, it turns out that consumers – you and me – prefer pristine looking toilet paper to ugly, unbleached, 100% recycled stuff. It turns out few of us are prepared to pay extra for TP that has a higher ratio of recycled content. While TP manufacturers are criticized in this report, we are the real problem since we’re the source of that “demand for virgin fiber.”

From the report:

It is time to reexamine current norms of tissue production and consumption. It is also time for companies to act more as global citizens and usher the world into a more sustainable paradigm. Fortunately, solutions promoting healthy forests and a healthy planet already exist. Companies and consumers simply need to embrace them.



We have been led to believe that good forrest management is no forrest management. Just look at the tremendous fires we had last year. Good forrest management is cutting and removing timber from time to time. New growth offers food resources for animals. Sick and dying trees need to be removed to control the spread of disease.

But now we are under attack by the Greenies. It is at our peril not to respond to their court challenges as well as their lobbying.

“Everyone’s standard of living drops as daily necessities become more costly”

Here we go:

The Issue With Tissue: How Americans are Flushing Forests Down the Toilet is a real report. It was released last week by the Natural Resources Defence Council (NRDC).


Described as one of America’s “most powerful environmental groups,” this outfit is a band of lawyers and lobbyists. Rather than doing something useful with their lives, they spend their time harassing businesses who employ people in small logging towns, including many First Nations/native Indian/indigenous breadwinners.

Nothing is ever good enough for these parasite lawyers. Even when forestry companies bend over backward to satisfy their demands, the goalposts keep shifting.

This report declares that “FSC and FSC-Mix certification are not enough” (p. 18). Over at the FSC website, we read that:

FSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests…

But the parasite lawyers deem this insufficient. Why?

Because, these protocols don’t alleviate the significant demand for virgin fiber. Only transitioning away from forest content by incorporating post consumer   recycled materials and alternate fibers will stop the needless and unsustainable use of trees for throwaway tissue products. [bold added, p. 18]

Honestly, one doesn’t know whether to laugh or cry. First of all, trees grow on trees. They’re another kind of crop. Humans grow them, harvest them, then grow more of them.

If the harvesting of this crop takes place in “responsibly managed forests,” there’s nothing unsustainable about it.

The NRDC’s use of those other morally-charged terms – needless and throwaway – is no accident. These people are pushing an extremist agenda that looks a lot like religious fanaticism. They consider it sinful for humans to feed their families by cutting down trees so that useful products can be made from them.

CA Fires of Hell? Thank Obama and the Environmentalists


The fires of Hell have descended on CA – thank the environmentalists. This was a disaster waiting to happen and not the cause of so-called climate change. Better yet, we Americans who live in that vast space located between the coasts could have given you a clue. We could have told you what was happening. But then again, it was those who probably never step into a woods made the policies. One of the few legacies of Obama that has now born fruit.

Diseases are devastating the Forest. It’s the worst of both worlds, small fires are not allowed to burn allowing forests to rejuvenate with new growth and browse necessary to sustain animal life. Appropriate logging has been stopped or severely curtailed thus limiting barriers to these hellish fires as well and help keeping forests healthy.


“Hotter, drier, longer forest fires we are witnessing today have nothing to do with dangerous manmade climate change. They have a lot to do with idiotic forest mismanagement policies and practices.”


This past week, The New York Times reported on California’s wildfires stating that “Since 2012, according to state emergency management officials, there has not been a month without a wildfire burning — a stark contrast to previous decades, when fire officials saw the fall and winter as a time to plan and regroup,”


As California burns, many Californians have been asking why the dramatic increase in wildfires in the last five years? Except for Governor Jerry Brown. Governor Brown claims that devastating fires are the “new normal.” Supporting Obama-era regulations have resulted in the new normal: an endless and devastating fire season.

What’s the significance of 2012?

Obama-Era Eco-Terrorism through Environmental Regulations

Under Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, “the Obama administration finalized a rule governing the management of 193 million acres of national forests and grasslands, establishing a new blueprint to guide everything from logging to recreation and renewable energy development,” The Washington Post reported in 2012. “The rule will serve as the guiding document for individual forest plans, which spell out exactly how these lands can be used.”

These Obama-era regulations introduced excessive layers of bureaucracy that blocked proper forest management and increased environmentalist litigation and costs — a result of far too many radical environmentalists, bureaucrats, Leftist politicians and judicial activists who would rather let forests burn than let anyone thin out overgrown trees or let professional loggers harvest usable timber left from beetle infestation, or selectively cut timber.

In a 2016 Townhall column, Paul Driessen explains:

Eco-purists want no cutting, no thinning – no using fire retardants in “sensitive” areas because the chemicals might get into streams that will be boiled away by conflagrations. They prevent homeowners from clearing brush around their homes, because it might provide cover or habitat for endangered species and other critters that will get incinerated or lose their forage, prey and habitats in the next blaze. They rarely alter their policies during drought years.

The resulting fires are not the “forest-rejuvenating” blazes of environmentalist lore. They are cauldron-hot conflagrations that exterminate wildlife habitats, roast bald eagle and spotted owl fledglings alive in their nests, boil away trout and trout streams, leave surviving animals to starve, and incinerate every living organism in already thin soils … that then get washed away during future downpours and snow melts. Areas incinerated by such fires don’t recover their arboreal biodiversity for decades.

Bloomberg: ‘I am going to slow down the elevator’

Instead of outrage, there is merely the slow desensitization of Americans that this is the new normal. The government intruding into every single aspect of our lives. If one prefers a dictatorship, NYC and Bloomberg show us the way. So we slow down the elevators, place them in out-of-the-way locations. What could go wrong. Best part? This is the new “Low Income housing” that we are supporting. Oopsie, “Affordable Housing” apparently the new term.

The article stated that the “affordable housing” development features murals and music along the stairway, with elevators located farther away from the front door that are “programmed to move at a slow pace.”

The design of the 124-unit, $37.7 million building not only encourages using the stairs but offers a free gym, an outdoor fitness park with exercise machines and a flower garden for children, adults and senior citizens. The building also has an indoor garage.

Arbor House’s outdoor fitness park sports “a tai chi spinner” for senior citizens who move the wheels with their arms, leg presses and a giant-size chess board with 4-foot tall chess pieces children can pick up and move.

The indoor gym has stationary children’s bikes with video games attached to a screen.

The New York Daily News reported on July 17 that the billionaire mayor has an elevator in his $30 million townhouse. – I just thought I would point that out.

As part of his ongoing campaign to transform New York City into what he calls “Fit City,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg is promoting “active design” for low-income housing developments being built there, including plans to prompt residents to use the stairs and rooftop gardens for growing “healthy” foods.

In 2010, the Bloomberg Administration and other public and private sector groups issued the “Active Design Guidelines,” which promotes car-free neighborhoods, encourages “physical movement” inside buildings and “improves access to nutritious food.”

In March, the 124-unit, $37.7 million Arbor House was opened in the Bronx, according to a July 31 Newsday report. Check out the full story if you want to be outraged.


“One witty slogan posted on a staircase door reads: ‘If your dog is fat, you’re not getting enough exercise,’” the Newsday article stated.

The Arbor also features a 10,000 square foot, rooftop hydroponic garden where vegetables will be grown, the article stated.

“If this building was five miles south in Manhattan it would be a luxury building,” Les Bluestone, co-founder and partner of Blue Sea Developmen.


Obama mocks us, laughs at us over Pipeline

This one really ticked me off. Maybe it was the morons sitting behind Obama smiling as he spoke, forgetting that their  a**es are getting gored every time they go to the gas pumps to fill up their cars.

Maybe it was his Rasputinesque grin, evil to the core as he lied through a faux smile.

In the end, it was his mocking us, smirking at us, knowing exactly what he was doing and no one gives a darn and he knows it.

And you know who else is laughing at us? Why good old Warren Buffet as he makes his millions off of his Railroads.  Lets all sing along with Warren as he wishes China a great new year working on the Railroads. Throw in the Rockefellers as well.

Warren Buffett’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC is among U.S. and Canadian railroads that stand to benefit from the Obama administration’s decision to reject TransCanada Corp. (TRP)’s Keystone XL oil pipeline permit.
With modest expansion, railroads can handle all new oil produced in western Canada through 2030, according to an analysis of the Keystone proposal by the U.S. State Department. (Chuckle time)!

“Whatever people bring to us, we’re ready to haul,” Krista York-Wooley, a spokeswoman for Burlington Northern, a unit of Buffett’s Omaha, Nebraska-based Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK/A), said in an interview. If Keystone XL “doesn’t happen, we’re here to haul.” From: Bloomberg

US billionaire Warren Buffett has appeared singing and playing the ukulele on Chinese state television. The billionaire popped up on CCTV and wished the people of China “a happy new year.” The Lunar New Year of the Dragon begins at midnight on Sunday. “Your country has accomplished amazing things, and the best is yet to come,” Buffett told the broadcaster. The investor is well respected in China for his financial success.

The keystone pipeline is actually just one of several oil sands pipelines targeted by the Rockefeller Brother’s Fund. Ezra Levant calls it industrial sabotage and, based on their own Power Point, that certainly seems an apt description. H/T: Heritage  From Rockefeller Fund sabotages Keystone pipeline approval. The Rockefeller Brother’s Fund in a coordinated, 4-year, $28 million dollar campaign was on the march to defeat it.

The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States.

But it was just a big pipe dream. Obama rejected the plan. (Bob McCarty)

Today Barack Obama mocked Republicans for pushing Keystone pipeline, a no brainer. Obama says the pipeline would only create 50 jobs. He’s not just offensive, he’s an idiot.
