Global Climate change is dead; long live Climate change!

The earth has not warmed for nearly 18 years according to the best data.

Every single computer model that is being used to warn us of the horrors of Global Warming has been shown to be incorrect.

While that doesn't mean that the activities of humanity aren't contributing to the climate it does mean that we have no proof that humanity is doing anything bad.

Yet liberals and environmental alarmists are ignoring science like the Luddites that most liberals are and demanding massive tax increases, huge amounts of regulation, and even more government micromanagement of every aspect of our lives to fight a problem which science doesn't even know exists.

Liberalism is based on lies.  The lie about Global Warming is just one of many that liberals use to achieve their objective of control over the lives of everyone.

Starbucks; showing us liberal pride

I don't think anyone in America would say that we don't need to address racism in this country.

Liberals want to talk about made up racism; claiming that a country that has a Black President who won two elections is endemically bigoted against Blacks.

Conservatives want to talk about the real government imposed racism that gives President Obama's two daughters special rights when applying to college just because they're Black. They will be taken ahead of equally qualified whites and asians simply because of their skin color.

However when Starbucks declares that it will force conversations about race on its customers it's demonstrating liberal hubris.  Only liberals can tell us what we need to know about race.

For all the president of Starbucks knows most of his baristas are racists. After all if America is so racist why would Starbucks employees be different? Oh yeah right because the leaders of Starbucks are liberals and they would never ever allow anyone unworthy to work for them.

That's the whole liberal mind set; I'm liberal and so even though I support abortion which Jesse Jackson called genocide against Blacks I'm not a racist and so my employees must be perfect too.

I don't drink coffee.  My wife stopped going to Starbucks when the CEO said that if you don't like gay marriage sell your Starbucks stock--talk about liberal tolerance.

But if you still frequent Starbucks I implore you to stop.  If Starbucks get's through this every business with a liberal boss will push politics on you every time you shop. There will be no escaping.

What Obama missed about religion

At this years National Prayer Breakfast Obama viciously attacked Christianity while continuing to defend Islam.

While refusing to label modern Islamic fundamentalist terrorists as Islamic Obama had no problem labeling Crusaders and Inquisitors—who he clearly held up as being as bad as modern Islamic terrorists—as Christians. 

Obama apparently missed the incongruity of constantly saying that Islamic terrorism isn’t Islamic but casually declaring that the Christians response to Islamic aggression, the Crusades, was on par with terror.

Oddly Obama missed the bizarre nature of comparing acts which were normal 1000 years ago-- when life was brutish, short, and nasty—with even worse acts done today when the world is much more civilized. 

Obama also apparently missed his history class when they discussed how the Crusades were in response to violent Islamic military aggression and persecution of Christians. 

He clearly missed the fact that the Inquisition killed fewer people in close to two hundred years, 1231-1400, than Osama Bin Laden did on 9/11; and over the entire 500 year history of Inquisitions—many of which were not approved of by the Catholic Church-- the death toll is only around twice the number of people who died on 9/11.

Obama also missed the inconsistency of saying that Crusaders were inspired by their faith but refusing to acknowledge that ISIS is inspired by Islam when ISIS itself says it is acting as a faithful servant of Allah.

In doing so Obama missed the fundamental difference between Christianity and Islam; Allah says that there is no Golden Rule for non-Muslims. 

When Crusaders or Inquisitors did evil things they were going against what Christ taught; which is why Pope Innocent III condemned the sacking of Constantinople and Saint Pope John Paul II apologized for it.

Unlike the Allah of the Quran Christ never tells Christians to persecute or kill any non-Christian. Even the “dark” verses of the Old Testament so beloved by atheists are very specific and limited; God tells the Jews to do this or that violent action in one particular circumstance. God never tells Jews, or Christians, that they can choose to lie to, steal from, or kill non-Christians/Jews in general.

In the New Testament Christ is even clearer that His is not a kingdom of this world and His followers are not to use violence but rather to forgive and love their oppressors; that’s why the justification for the Crusades was to defend Christians in the Holy Land who had been conquered by and were being persecuted by Muslims.

The Quran however contains verses such as

Quran (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them" 

Quran (9:5) - "So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them."

In Islam the “dark” verses are open ended in that they apply to all non-Muslims. That means that Muslims who are inclined to violence can find verses in the Quran to justify terrorism. That some Christians say the Bible supports this or that evil is a far cry from the Bible actually supporting that evil. 

That is the key truth that Obama missed; while people have used every religion to justify evil the reality is that Christians who did so had to lie and distort what Christ taught whereas Muslims can truthfully justify evil because the Quran justifies evil.

Why is Islam so fixated on violence and the use of force to convert non-believers? Why does Islam have one set of rules for Muslims and another for non-Muslims? Why does Islam support what all other faiths view as evil? After all Mohammad claims that Jesus is great prophet and Allah is the God of the Old Testament so shouldn’t Islam be more like Christianity?

The answer is that Islam was the Scientology of the 7th century. Just as Scientology’s founder has been quoted as saying:

"I'd like to start a religion. That's where the money is."

Mohammad made up a faith, stealing bits from Judaism and Christianity, that would get him wealth, power, many wives—one of whom was 6 years old when he married her--, and adulation.

If one looks at the history of the writing of the Quran one finds that verses that are peaceful and tolerant were written when Mohammad was militarily weak and had to be nice to his neighbors whereas verses that demand violence towards non-Muslims were from when Mohammad had the military power to persecute and slaughter his neighbors.

That’s why some Muslims can cite verses that show that Islam is a religion of peace.  In fact many Muslims are peaceful people but that’s because they ignore the bad parts of the Quran. Such Muslims were a problem for Mohammad that is why the Quran says:

Quran (4:95) - "Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons.

Quran (8:65) - "O Prophet, exhort the believers to fight..."

Not all who subscribe to Islam, then or now, are comfortable with the evil that Mohammad extols; from a Christian perspective this makes sense since God has written His laws on the hearts of all men.  That’s why it’s important to condemn Islam but not all Muslims lest we make unnecessary enemies.

That Christianity and Islam are so different is a clear reflection of the differences between Jesus and Mohammad.

Obama apparently missed the fact that Jesus—even if we only consider His human actions-- is an infinitely better person than Mohammad.  Mohammad’s acts would cause him to be an international criminal in todays world; including killing prisoners, marrying a 6 year old girl, raised money through banditry, taking 1/5 of the loot from battles for himself, breaking treaties, and murdering poets who criticized him.

But Obama’s equating the true “religion of peace” Christianity with the “religion of making sure that Mohammad gets rich” is not surprising given Obama’s ringing defense of Islam. For example Obama told the UN:

"The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."

Perhaps the biggest thing Obama missed, or doesn’t care about, is that his blatant attack on the faith held by the majority of Americans will reduce Democrat credibility across the board.

For example people, especially low information voters, who were on the fence about the HHS mandate forcing Catholic and other Pro-Life Christians to pay for chemical abortions might change sides if they realize that Obama has a virulently anti-Christian view of the world.

Similarly by essentially labeling anyone who takes their Christian faith seriously as the enemy Obama is making the Democrats even less likely to win in 2016.

After all if Obama becomes an apostle of intolerance the intolerance at the core of the Democrat agenda will become more obvious even to those who get their news from the MSM.

As always however the media will bury this story so conservatives—that’s you—need to spread the word; knowledge always results in folks voting for conservatives while liberalism’s success depends on ignorance.

The real assault on the Constitution

Forget Obama's pen. The real problem are the thousands of regulations created by unelected civil servants with job security.

The HHS mandate that tries to force Catholics and Evangelicals to pay for abortion inducing chemicals was made by unelected civil servants who cannot be thrown out of office. They can create what are effectively laws while being paid by taxpayers while taxpayers have to spend a fortune and deal with years long legal battles to preserve the freedoms those civil servants are trying to destroy.

That asymmetry means the citizens lose and the governments power grows irrespective of who is elected.

Oklahoma city vs NY; what a difference

Liberals, lead by Bill Clinton, blames Rush Limbaugh for the Oklahoma city bombing of a Federal building because Rush criticized the government.

Rush never ever called for violence and never incited others to call for violence nor did he support those who did call for violence.

Yet the liberals and the media condemned him.

Similarly liberals blamed Sarah Palin for the shooting of Rep. Giffords even though it was shown that the killer was a nut case who was never shown to even know who Palin was.

But now we're told that even though liberals encouraged protesters who were calling for dead cops those liberals have no responsibility for the execution of two police officers who dedicated their lives to helping others.

Liberals also fail to note that both of the slain officers were minorities yet supposedly the problem with the police is that they are racists.

Liberals never ever take responsibility for their actions so we shouldn't be surprised.  But the simple truth is that while liberals like Sharpton and de Blasio didn't want to kill cops their actions inspired the man who did kill the officers.  There may not be blood on liberals hands but liberals are responsible for creating the atmosphere that encouraged the killer to use violence.
