Copenhagen Accord: Scott Brown Victory Saves U.S. From More Than Just ObamaCare

The Scott Brown victory in Massachusetts might be best analogized to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, in which a tiny little hobbit saves the world from an incredibly powerful dark and evil force hell-bent on totalitarian rule.

Things looked incredibly bleak.  The world was on the verge of going right down the drain into the sewer of socialism.  The dark and evil tyrant’s forces seemed unstoppable.  And yet somehow virtue, wisdom, and courage prevailed.  And a little hobbit named Frodo Baggins saved the day for freedom.

Scott Brown is our Frodo, of course.  I’ll leave it to you to figure out who the “dark and evil tyrant” is.  And that stunning upset victory in Massachusetts was analogous to Frodo successfully journeying to Mordor to throw the one-ring of Democrat power into the fiery hell of Mount Doom.

Brown’s victory likely saves the country from having the incredibly unpopular ObamaCare shoved down our throats.  But now we’re finding it did a lot more than that:

India, China won’t sign Copenhagen Accord

The Indian and Chinese governments have had a rethink on signing the Copenhagen Accord, officials said on Saturday, and the UN has also indefinitely postponed its Jan 31 deadline for countries to accede to the document.

An Indian official said that though the government had been thinking of signing the accord because it “did not have any legal teeth and would be good diplomatically”; it felt irked because of repeated messages from both UN officials and developed countries to accede to it.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has written to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon seeking a number of clarifications on the implications of the accord that India — with five other countries — had negotiated in the last moments of the Copenhagen climate summit in December, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

“That letter, and the defeat of the Democrats in the Massachusetts bypoll, has forced the UN to postpone the deadline indefinitely,” an official said. “With the Democrats losing in one of their strongholds, the chances of the climate bill going through the US senate have receded dramatically.

“So if the US is not going to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 17 percent, which was a very weak target anyway, why should we make any commitment even if it does not have any legal teeth?” the official said.

China also appears in no mood to sign the accord.

“With the deadline postponed, we are not going to sign now,” said a Chinese official now here to take part in the BASIC (Brazil, South Africa, India, China) meeting to chalk out a climate strategy.

The meeting of the four environment ministers Sunday is likely to end with the announcement of a fund they will set up to help other developing countries cope with the effects of climate change, said an official of the environment ministry.

Only four countries — Australia, Canada, Papua New Guinea and the Maldives — have signed the Copenhagen Accord so far, though Brazil, South Africa and South Korea have also indicated their willingness to do so.

Though Australia and Canada have signed, they have not indicated the greenhouse gas emission reductions they are committing under the accord — something developed countries are supposed to do.

China and India were never going to actually sign anything that was going to gut their economies.  They were building coal plants faster than happy puppies wag their tails.  And they are increasing their CO2 emissions at a mind-boggling rate.

But Obama doesn’t care about the US economy the way the leaders in China and India care about theirs; Obama was willing to sign an economic suicide pact with the global warming orcs even if our most formidable economic competitors played games and did nothing even as they were all-the-while talking the good talk.

What can I say but “Frodo lives!

Scott Brown is the man who may have literally saved America – and the entire western world – from death by suicide.

    HALLELUJAH! Just more to thank the Lord for in the Brown victory. It really is astounding what his win has accomplished.
    Last week was a good week for America and those who love her.

    I hope that this continues and the GOP wins some seats back in the elections this year.

    Hi Michael, based on your comments about Scott Brown and the Lord of the Rings I think you might enjoy a video I put together starting this past weekend. Great minds think alike as they say:

    Morgen,
    Way to GO on that video! My favorite part was the shot of Ted Kennedy with Gollum’s words, “Must have precious!”

    We ARE in the Lord of the Rings; and right now there still aren’t enough courageous men and women to fight against the evil that has taken over modern cultures before and will take them over again.

    Europe looks to Europe for solutions.
    Jefferson said,

    “the comparison of our government with those of Europe, is like a comparison of Heaven with Hell.”

    Ronald Reagan understood the core of the battle regarding health care “reform”:

    One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project. Most people are a little reluctant to oppose anything that suggests medical care for people who possibly can’t afford it.

    Now, the American people, if you put it to them about socialized medicine and gave them a chance to choose, would unhesitatingly vote against it. We had an example of this. Under the Truman administration it was proposed that we have a compulsory health insurance program for all people in the United States, and, of course, the American people unhesitatingly rejected this.

    Republicans must embrace the idea of limited government and fiscal conservatism. If they do, they will win huge; if they don’t, they will gradually lose the people who have turned against Obama and supported Republicans.

    It’s your job and mine to try to make the Republican Party listen to this common sense, J.W. We’ve seen them lose sight and meander through party politics before.

  6. Michael Eden Says:

    You wouldn’t have known that last week was a bad week for Obama and the liberal agenda by listening to his State of the Union speech.

    He hasn’t learned anything but to redouble his demagoguery.
