Obama: It’s Climate Change That’s Crucifying Children, Raping Women, Beheading Westerners And Burying And Burning People Alive, Not Terrorism

February 10, 2015

There’s a passage in the New Testament, 2 Thessalonians 2:7, that describes “the mystery of lawlessness” and how it will increase in the final days as the Antichrist appears and the restraining presence of the Church is taken out of the way.

We’re seeing it in the world right now.

And the mystery of lawlessness is what makes decent people ask, “How can this be happening?  Why isn’t anyone doing anything to stop it?”

Of course, Barack Obama isn’t a decent person and so he’s not asking such questions.

We are watching a cancer take root and grow and spread across the Middle East like nothing we’ve ever seen before:

CBS/AP/February 10, 2015, 5:47 PM
20,000 foreign fighters flock to Syria, Iraq to join terrorists

WASHINGTON — Foreign fighters are streaming into Syria and Iraq in unprecedented numbers to join the Islamic State or Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or other extremist groups, including at least 3,400 from Western nations among 20,000 from around the world, U.S. intelligence officials say in an updated estimate of a top terrorism concern. […]

It’s that word “unprecedented” that ought to bother you.  We’ve never seen anything like this in the entire history of terrorism.  Islamic State is a cancer that is exploding while we have a dithering liar who refuses to do anything about a problem he says isn’t really even much of a problem.   Just like it was a problem on September 10, 2001.

Obama’s own handpicked officials have proclaimed this for MONTHS:

Islamic State threat ‘beyond anything we’ve seen’: Pentagon
By Missy Ryan
WASHINGTON  Thu Aug 21, 2014 5:47pm EDT

(Reuters) – The sophistication, wealth and military might of Islamic State militants represent a major threat to the United States that may surpass that once posed by al Qaeda, U.S. military leaders said on Thursday.

“They are an imminent threat to every interest we have, whether it’s in Iraq or anywhere else,” Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told reporters at the Pentagon.

Hagel’s assessment of Islamic State, which gained strength during Syria’s civil war and swept into northern Iraq earlier this summer, sounded a note of alarm several days after the group posted a video on social media showing one of its fighters beheading an American hostage kidnapped in Syria.

Asked if the hardline Sunni Muslim organization posed a threat to the United States comparable to that of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Hagel said it was “as sophisticated and well-funded as any group we have seen.”

“They are beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of … military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded. This is beyond anything we’ve seen.”

Reality doesn’t matter to Barack Obama and the demons that scream inside his rodent soul.  He is immune from facts because he has whatever “truth” Lucifer is giving him, instead; he is immune from advice from his experts because he is an arrogant malignant narcissist who believes he knows better than his experts.  Even according to his own liberal allies.

It doesn’t matter whether your top official is Robert Gates or Leon Panetta – who blames Obama for everything we’re currently seeing melting down in Iraq and Syria; if you have a clue, you know Obama has failed America in an incredibly dangerous way.

As we speak, Obama is vowing that Islamic State will lose – while doing virtually NOTHING to actually fight them.  And anybody who says we’re hurting Islamic State is just a fool spouting gibberish that ignores reality.  Because as I have already documented, they are growing exponentially in an “unprecedented” way never before seen in the history of man.

During the Gulf War, the allies averaged 11,ooo sorties a day.  Under Obama with Islamic State, we’re averaging SEVEN sorties a day.  Obama – who MOCKED “the coalition of the willing” that Bush assembled to destroy the regime of Saddam Hussein – has virtually ZERO allies in an operation euphemistically titled “Inherent Resolve” that in reality has nothing of the kind.

Now, that last article that described Jordan’s role has since been modified by the hideous burning alive of one of their captured pilots by Islamic State.  But again, Jordan is vowing to fight these beasts to the very gates of hell and executing their captured terrorist prisoners, and what is Obama doing?  FREEING terrorist prisoners while trying to shut down the very facility of Guantanamo Bay that was created to imprison them in the first place.

What a disgrace.  There’s a saying, “Evil triumphs when good men do nothing.”  And that’s certainly true.  The ONLY way that doesn’t apply to Barack Obama is that he is nothing even close to approaching “a good man.”  But he is certainly doing nothing and evil is certainly triumphing.

Obama wants to claim that he’s like a big city mayor fighting crime, and that terrorism is nothing worse than criminals being criminals.  The damn fool doesn’t realize that criminals don’t try to murder as many people as they can as horribly as they can just to watch them scream and die in the hopes that their cult of death will become transcendent in the world.

Obama – who of course claimed the world was going to hell just a few years ago when George W. Bush was president – now claims that he believes the world has become better and better and that his messiahship has “fundamentally transformed” the world into a beatific Utopia.  Which is another way of pointing out the fact that Barack Obama is either the most cynical man who ever lived, or he has a messianic complex that makes Hitler’s look meager in comparison.  Either alternative is truly terrifying for a world in crisis.

In June of 2014, the man who had claimed that Islamic State was merely a “JV team” that was pretending to be deadly terrorists but really were nothing worth worrying about, said:

But this country has always been built both through an individual initiative, but also a sense of some common purpose. And if there’s one message I want to deliver to young people like a Tumblr audience is, don’t get cynical. Guard against cynicism. I mean, the truth of the matter is that for all the challenges we face, all the problems that we have, if you had to be — if you had to choose any moment to be born in human history, not knowing what your position was going to be, who you were going to be, you’d choose this time. The world is less violent than it has ever been. It is healthier than it has ever been. It is more tolerant than it has ever been. It is better fed then it’s ever been. It is more educated than it’s ever been.

Terrible things happen around the world every single day, but the trend lines of progress are unmistakable. And the reason is, is because each successive generation tries to learn from previous mistakes and pushes the course of history in a better direction. And the only thing that stops that is if people start thinking that they don’t make a difference and they can’t make changes. And that’s fed in our culture all the time.

I can only imagine Obama shared that magic helicopter ride with discredited NBC anchor Brian Williams.

And nine months later, after that JV team has ravaged and burned and murdered across the Middle East, Obama’s messianic faith in himself has not dimmed:

Obama also contended the “trajectory of this planet overall is one toward less violence, more tolerance, less strife, less poverty.”

How can this fool think this way?  How could this fool have been elected not once but twice?  “The mystery of lawlessness” that we were told would begin to grow large and powerful in the very last days, is how.

An amazing thing about Barack Obama is how even when he appears to be saying the right thing, he is actually leading the way to pure, demonic evil.

In his statement about the murder of yet another American Citizen at the hands of our JV Team extraordinaire, Obama ends by claiming:

ISIL is a hateful and abhorrent terrorist group whose actions stand in stark contrast to the spirit of people like Kayla.  On this day, we take comfort in the fact that the future belongs not to those who destroy, but rather to the irrepressible force of human goodness that Kayla Mueller shall forever represent.

“… the irrepressible force of human goodness…?”

Let me point out the fact that no genuine Christian in the entire history of the world has ever said that, because the Bible presents a very, very different message about “human goodness”:

  • Surely I was sinful at birth,
        sinful from the time my mother conceived me. — Psalm 51:5
  • for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God – Romans 3:23
  • Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned—  Romans 5:12
  • But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  — Romans 5:8
  • All of us have become like one who is unclean,
        and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags;
    we all shrivel up like a leaf,
        and like the wind our sins sweep us away. — Isaiah 64:6
  • Indeed, there is no one on earth who is righteous,
        no one who does what is right and never sins. — Ecclesiastes 7:20
  • The fool says in his heart,
        “There is no God.”
    They are corrupt, and their ways are vile;
        there is no one who does good.

    God looks down from heaven
        on all mankind
    to see if there are any who understand,
        any who seek God.
    Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt;
        there is no one who does good,
        not even one.  — Psalm 53:1-3

The Bible and the Judeo-Christian worldview teach the precise OPPOSITE of what Barack Obama – who had to be corrected as to which religion he was an adherent of and had faith in – believes.

Obama doesn’t believe in the reality of human sin and the fact that mankind is doomed apart from the grace of a redeeming God.  Christ died for nothing, on Obama’s profoundly NON-Christian view.

Frankly, Obama believes as the most radical Muslims believe; he believes in the intrinsic goodness of the government that forces people to live a “godly” life.

Do you know what I call “the irrepressible force of human goodness”?  I call it a fist raised in defiance at God with the proclamation of, “We don’t need you!  Our goodness and our perfection is IRREPRESSIBLE!!!”

Barack Obama is a liar and the truth is not in him.  And that is why he is such a fool who has bought the empty philosophies and the high-sounding nonsense – see Colossians 2:8 – of his own blathering rhetoric.

Obama amazingly says that climate change is the real threat, not terrorism.

After all, “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is.”  I mean, right?

Boston Buried by Snow Again as ‘Absurd’ Winter Drags On
By  Erin McClam and M. Alex Johnson

Boston is buried again.

The city was hammered Monday by its third winter storm in two weeks, and records fell with the snow.

Counting the 20 inches of snow that had fallen at Logan International Airport since late Saturday, there was 37 inches on the ground, beating a 1996 record for the greatest snow depth in Boston.

Over the past 30 days, Boston has recorded more than 69 inches of snow, easily topping the previous record of 58.8 inches from Jan. 9 to Feb. 7, 1978. And with a month and a half of winter still to go, this season is already one of the city’s 10 snowiest winters on record, at 73.9 inches and counting, the National Weather Service said. City officials said crews have used up almost 58,000 tons of salt already this season.

The National Weather Service forecast as much as 3 feet of snow across the state by Tuesday night, when the storm is expected to clear.

“We’ve never seen the likes of this here in Boston,” Mayor Marty Walsh said. “We’ve gotten whacked pretty good over the last, literally, 13 days.”

The snow was causing another problem: the danger of structural collapse. […]

Either Obama and all of his pseudo-science-spouting fool friends don’t know their heads from their anuses, or else climate change is destroying the world as it crucifies children, rapes women, beheads Westerners and savagely buries and burns its victims alive.

The Bible teaches that in the very last days, the world’s climates WILL go haywire.  And just as in the Old Testament, we have the same murderous terrorists who were once known as the Assyrians come back to murder in the same vicious ways in the very same part of the world.

They’re back, folks.  Because the wrath of God is about to be revealed in the form of a big-government leader known as the Antichrist or the beast.  This man will do what liberals have dreamed about for decades: he will take over the entire economy of the world and impose a mark such that no one can buy or sell without his government’s consent.  Because you want your socialism and you’re going to GET your socialism right before you burn in hell forever and ever:

He required everyone–small and great, rich and poor, free and slave–to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead.  And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name. — Revelation 13:16-17

Meanwhile, the mystery of lawlessness is picking up skids as Obama greases the skids of evil.

It’s Halloween, Liberals; Do You Know Where Your Global Warming Baby Is?

October 31, 2011

Snowfalls Are Now Just a Thing of the Past,” the headline said. 

The story said:

Britain’s winter ends tomorrow with further indications of a striking environmental change: snow is starting to disappear from our lives.

Sledges, snowmen, snowballs and the excitement of waking to find that the stuff has settled outside are all a rapidly diminishing part of Britain’s culture, as warmer winters – which scientists are attributing to global climate change – produce not only fewer white Christmases, but fewer white Januaries and Februaries.

The first two months of 2000 were virtually free of significant snowfall in much of lowland Britain, and December brought only moderate snowfall in the South-east. It is the continuation of a trend that has been increasingly visible in the past 15 years: in the south of England, for instance, from 1970 to 1995 snow and sleet fell for an average of 3.7 days, while from 1988 to 1995 the average was 0.7 days. London’s last substantial snowfall was in February 1991.

Global warming, the heating of the atmosphere by increased amounts of industrial gases, is now accepted as a reality by the international community. Average temperatures in Britain were nearly 0.6°C higher in the Nineties than in 1960-90, and it is estimated that they will increase by 0.2C every decade over the coming century. Eight of the 10 hottest years on record occurred in the Nineties.

However, the warming is so far manifesting itself more in winters which are less cold than in much hotter summers. According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become“a very rare and exciting event”.

“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.

Well, somehow the “global warming” message that was utterly refuted by reality was morphed by the true believers into “climate change” – whatever the hell that means.

But “the scientists” and “the computer models” all said that it was going to get hotter and hotter, and that “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is.”  And these morally stupid liberals couldn’t have been more wrong as they perverted science to suit their ideological agenda.

Here is reality:

Brrr… New York City Expecting Earliest Significant Snowfall Since Civil War
Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, October 29, 2011, 10:57 AM

It must be global warming climate change.

(Star Tribune)

New York City is expecting its earliest snow storm since the Civil War.
The Daily Mail reported:

The North East is bracing for a chilling Halloween weekend as 60 million people are expected to be hit by snowstorms.

New England has already been struck by a very early snowstorm, while this weekend looks set to see huge amounts of sleet and snow covering the North East, invariably causing power outages and travel chaos.

Low pressure will track up the East Coast on Saturday possibly bringing significant amounts of the white stuff across the tri-state area, Pennsylvania and New England.

New York has received measurable snow before Halloween only three times since 1869 – and never more than one inch, which is what some experts are predicting.

Likely to see the most snow will be the Massachusetts Berkshires, the Litchfield Hills in northwestern Connecticut, southwestern New Hampshire and the southern Green Mountains.

In Connecticut, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy warned residents that they could lose power due to the anticipated wet, heavy snow.

I have far more intellectual respect for the most severely mentally disabled person than I do for liberal “intellectuals”; because even that serverely disabled person (who also has an excuse for his or her inability to comprehend basic reality) can learn to stack one block on top of another.  Liberals are utterly incapable of learning.  I mean, this leftwing lunacy keeps boomeranging back over and over again.

What does the Bible say about liberals? 

Yes, it says that “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left” as indicated by Ecclesiastes 10:2.  But why is that so?  Because liberals are “always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth” (2 Timothy 3:7).  The truth to a liberal is akin to nuclear physics to a primitive yet-undiscovered aborigine.  Because there is absolutely no possibility that they will ever discover it as long as they continue to think and live as they do.

Children just won’t know what snow is, liberals said.  Because liberals actually are that stupid and that wrong.

 

Snow A Real Damper For Global Warming, But True Believers Are Insulated In A Leftwing Cocoon Of Lies

May 27, 2011

I got a response to an article I wrote titled “Global Warming ‘Scientists’ Admit Purging Their Raw Data” from someone referring to himself as “Mechanical Engineer.”  Here’s how he lectured me:

The data that was thrown out was not the only data that was collected around the world.

Take some time and rather than read some idiot’s opinion, do your own research. If you have any intelligence, there is only one conclusion – the atmospher [sic] is geating [sic] warmer. WAKE UP AMERICA. Scientist [sic] are scientist, not lying politicians and not ignorant columnist [sic].

Corporations do not care about you or the environment, so the last thing they would want is for the people to have knowledge.

“The ten warmest years on record have all occured [sic] since 1995″

For starters, you can visit NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmopsheric [sic] Administration). I’m trying to teach you to fish!! let’s see if you starve America ?!!!

And here is my response:

Mechanical Mind,

You might be great at teaching people to fish. If so, please stick with it. You’re sure not good at teaching people to think.  All you can do is recite the pseudo-scientific propaganda that someone poured into your head.

Your “science” is ideology, and whenever the science gets in the way of your ideology, so much the worse for your “science.”

We went from “global warming” to “climate change” because we clearly WEREN’T warming, and “climate change” provided the left with the rhetorical device to entirely deny their previous arguments and to essentially actually argue that it’s so damn cold because it’s so damn hot. And it was “justified” “scientifically” by “researchers” who were saying to one another stuff like:

“I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline.”

Then you find out that the “trick” of “hiding the decline” was even more insidious than merely camouflaging the fact that it’s not getting warmer, but rather the very heart of their case in terms of proxy reconstructions of data.

So much for your “Scientist are scientist [sic], not lying politicians and not ignorant columnist [sic]” remark.

And with all due respect for your “science” and your sneering contempt to conceal the fact that you have been disproven time and time again, it is all complete BULLCRAP:

In 2000, global warmers shrilly assured us that “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is.”

The problem with that “scientific” prediction based on the “fact” of global warming is that it turned out to be completely FALSE:

Ski resorts’ woe: Too much snow
Fierce storms that closed roads on key weekends prevented many potential visitors from driving to the slopes this season
May 21, 2011 | Hugo Martin

California ski operators often complain that they don’t have enough snow. This year, they’re complaining that they had too much.

Mountain resorts saw a 12% decline in skiers and snowboarders this season compared with the previous one, with attendance falling to about 7.1 million, according to the California Ski Industry Assn., the nonprofit trade group for the state’s major winter sports areas.

Your mantra that “corporations do not care about you or the environment” reveals your real problem: you are a socialist. You might be some hybrid consisting in part fascist, part Marxist, and pure distilled fool.

Socialists do not care about you, the environment, or anything but their total power and control over the masses. And they use naked indoctrination to GET that control.

As for the mainstream media that have bought the global warming lie hook, line and sinker – because pseudo-scientists like YOU taught them how to “fish” – I pointed out in a comment just yesterday:

A Soviet correspondent once said of the American mainstream media, “I have the greatest admiration for your propaganda. Propaganda in the West is carried out by experts who have had the best training in the world — in the field of advertizing — and have mastered the techniques with exceptional proficiency … Yours are subtle and persuasive; ours are crude and obvious … I think that the fundamental difference between our worlds, with respect to propaganda, is quite simple. You tend to believe yours … and we tend to disbelieve ours.”

And it is a rather easy thing to document that those “experts” are entirely leftwing:

Walter Lippmann – who shaped progressive “journalism,” said, “The common interests very largely elude public opinion entirely and can be managed only by a specialized class whose personal interests reach beyond the locality.” He referred to democracy as “the manufacture of consent” and said citizens “are mentally children.” He said:

“In the absence of institutions and education by which the environment is so successfully reported that the realities of public life stand out very sharply against self-centered opinion, the common interests very largely elude public opinion entirely, and can be managed only by a specialized class…”

Meanwhile his progressive pal Edward Bernays said things like:

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”

It is the LEFT that wants to erect an elite class that rules the lives of the rest of the people. By whatever means necessary, including propaganda and lies. It is the LEFT that wants to erect a giant omnipotent state that replaces God. It is the LEFT that wants to create a world in which everyone has to come to THEM to get the basic essentials for existence and thus control those existences.

It is the left that is telling all the lies.

For the record, mechanically clueless, you just parroted one of those lies that were passed from global warming alarmist “scientists” to their parrots in the mainstream media which has since been entirely refuted. It is a LIE that “the ten warmest years on record have all occured [sic] since 1995.” And thank God for the “idiots” – as you would have called them – who forced the correction after “science” bowed down before leftist ideology.

1934 is now the hottest, and 3 others from the 1930’s are in the top 10. Furthermore, only 3 (not 9) took place since 1995 (1998, 1999, and 2006). The years 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004 are now below the year 1900 and no longer even in the top 20.

Sorry, Mr. Sneering Ignorant Liberal, but your “facts” just got flushed down the toilet with the rest of the fecal matter.

I am increasingly alarmed by the stupidity and ignorance that is coming out of our university system.

The power of the university used to be to teach students how to think.  Students learned a diverse range of subjects that not only broadened their academic range, but forced them to apply what they learned and forced them to research and express their ideas about what they had learned.

It was too tempting for liberals – who progressively purged conservatives from academia via tactics that were frankly Stalinist.  So nowadays professors simply tell students what to think, require them to fill their minds with blatant propaganda, and then force them to spit that propaganda back out in order to get the approval of a decent grade.

It’s just no wonder that we end up with minds and thinking like “Mechanical Engineer’s.”

Global Warming Out In Cold – Save For Leftist Ideologues Keeping Fire Burning

February 3, 2011

Poor Al Gore.  If it weren’t for the fact that he is a genuinely evil man – not to mention a hypocrite of gargantuan proportions – who has personally benefited to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars by hyping a bogus agenda, I’d feel sorry for the guy.

As it is….

Cold is back.  And it’s back with a vengeance.  And the funny thing about this title – from MSNBC to make it even better – is that it simultaneously mocks both the left’s rabid global warming ideology and it’s rabid anti-oil ideology at the same time:

Dozens spent night in blizzard as cars ran low on gas
Storm also tied to bridge plunge that kills 3; Midwest left freezing
msnbc.com staff and news service reports
updated

The enormous winter storm that left Midwesterners shivering and crushed snow-laden buildings in the Northeast wouldn’t let go Thursday, with dozens of people trapped in a blizzard overnight on a South Dakota highway and three deaths reported when a pickup truck plunged off an icy bridge in Oklahoma.

In South Dakota, people in more than 150 vehicles were stranded overnight on Interstate 29, KELO-TV reported on its website.

Some travelers reported dire conditions. “Mothers with 9-month-old babes, young couples with children running on red or out of gas, vehicles stalled,” Codington County Search and Rescue spokesman Pat Culhane told KWAT radio. “There’s five-foot drifts with vehicles stuck in them, mostly semis.”

By morning, some 70 people had been rescued, with others deciding to stay in their vehicles, which were stuck between the towns of Summit and Sisseton.

Truck driver Randy Sanders said he’d been stuck since 10:30 p.m. and still couldn’t see much from his stranded truck Thursday morning.

In Oklahoma, a pickup truck jumped a guard rail on Interstate 44 near the town of Miami and fell into the Spring River. At least three people died, and several others were rescued.
Story: 3 die when truck plunges over snow-covered bridge

In parts of the nation’s midsection, wind chills dipped to nearly 30 below early Thursday as the region began dealing with the storm’s aftermath. The sprawling system unloaded as much as 2 feet of snow, crippled airports and stranded drivers in downtown Chicago as if in a prairie blizzard.

Even the Southwest wasn’t spared: Freezing temperatures led to school closures in parts of New Mexico when school buses wouldn’t start and delayed the Phoenix Open golf tourney in Scottsdale, Ariz.

More bad weather was on the way for some places. Parts of the southern United States, including Texas, Louisiana and Alabama, are forecast to get snow and ice late on Thursday.

Officials in the Northeast had warned homeowners and businesses for days of the dangers of leaving snow piled up on rooftops. As the 2,100-mile-long storm cloaked the region in ice and added inches to the piles of snow already settled across the landscape, the predictions came true.

The National Weather Service issued special advisories about “black ice” for New York and Boston. Wednesday’s standing water on many streets and sidewalks froze overnight, making driving and walking treacherous in spots.

In Middletown, Conn., the entire third floor of a building failed, littering the street with bricks and snapping two trees. Acting Fire Marshal Al Santostefano said two workers fled when they heard a cracking sound.

“It’s like a bomb scene,” Santostefano said. “Thank God they left the building when they did.”

A gas station canopy on New York’s Long Island collapsed, as did an airplane hangar near Boston, damaging aircraft. Roof cave-ins also were reported in Rhode Island. The University of Connecticut closed its hockey rink as a precaution because of the amount of ice and snow on the roof. The school hoped to have it inspected and reopened in time for a game Saturday.

A barn roof collapsed Wednesday night at an upstate New York dairy farm, trapping an unknown number of cows inside.

Clearing the snow
The cost of snow clean-up has blasted holes in the budgets of many cities, states and counties, which were already struggling with the aftermath of the severe recession.

Some places in the Northeast that have gotten more snow so far this winter than they usually get the whole season are running out of places to put it. In Portland, Maine, the downtown snow-storage area was expected to reach capacity after this week’s storm — the first time in three years that has happened.

“It’s not so much about plowing as it is about where to put it,” said Mike Schumaker, a contractor near Albany, N.Y. “We still have snow from Christmas that hasn’t melted.”

Snow totals in the Northeast hit their peak at several inches in New England, a far cry from the foot or more the region has come to expect with each passing storm in a season full of them. Meanwhile, the Midwest was reeling from the storm’s wallop as the system swept eastward.

Tens of millions of people stayed home Wednesday. The hardy few Midwesterners who ventured out faced howling winds that turned snowflakes into face-stinging needles. Chicago’s 20.2 inches of snow was the city’s third-largest amount on record.

Across the storm’s path, lonely commuters struggled against drifts 3 and 4 feet deep in eerily silent streets, some of which had not seen a plow’s blade since the snow started a day earlier. Parkas and ski goggles normally reserved for the slopes became essential for getting to work.

“This is probably the most snow I’ve seen in the last 34 years,” joked 34-year-old Chicagoan Michael George. “I saw some people cross-country skiing on my way to the train. It was pretty wild.”

The system was blamed for at least 12 deaths, including a homeless man who burned to death on Long Island as he tried to light cans of cooking fuel and a woman in Oklahoma City who was killed while being pulled behind a truck on a sled that hit a guard rail.

Airport operations slowed to a crawl nationwide, and flight cancellations reached 13,000 for the week, making this system the most disruptive so far this winter. A massive post-Christmas blizzard led to about 10,000 cancellations.

The airports with the most flight cancellations were Chicago’s O’Hare International, still feeling the impact of Wednesday’s blizzard, and Bush International in Houston, where freezing rain is forecast.

Chicago public schools canceled classes for a second straight day. The city’s iconic Lake Shore Drive reopened before dawn Thursday after 34 hours; crews had worked overnight to clear snow and stranded vehicles. Drivers had abandoned hundreds of vehicles stopped in their tracks by snow that drifted as high as the windshields late Tuesday and into Wednesday morning.
Story: Fearful, frigid night on Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive

Some motorists came away angry, frustrated that the city didn’t close the crucial thoroughfare earlier. Others were mad at themselves for going out during the storm or not using another route.

“In 31 years with the city, I haven’t experienced anything like we did at Lake Shore Drive,” said Raymond Orozco, chief of staff for Mayor Richard M. Daley. “Hundreds of people were very inconvenienced, and we apologize for that.”

Utility crews raced to restore power to thousands of homes and businesses in Ohio, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, where freezing rain and ice brought down electrical lines.

Rolling blackouts were implemented across Texas, including in Super Bowl host city Dallas, because of high demand during a rare ice storm. The outages would not affect Cowboys Stadium in suburban Arlington, said Jeamy Molina, a spokeswoman for utility provider Oncor. But other Super Bowl facilities, such as team hotels, were not exempt, she said.

The storm derived its power from the collision of cold air sweeping down from Canada and warm, moist air coming up from the South. Weather experts said La Nina, a temperature phenomenon in the Pacific Ocean, also contributed.

“The atmosphere doesn’t like that contrast in temperature. Things get mixed together and you have a storm like this,” said Gino Izzo, a National Weather Service meteorologist. “The jet stream up in the atmosphere was like the engine and the warm air was the fuel.”

Snowfall totals this winter are off the charts along parts of the Interstate 95 corridor between Boston and Philadelphia.

Newark, N.J., was hit with 62 inches of snow through Jan. 27, compared with the seasonal average of 25 inches. In New York City, 56 inches of snow has fallen on Central Park, compared to the 22-inch seasonal average.

The Associated Press and Reuters contributed to this report.

Al Gore is a pathologically dishonest propagandist.  He and every single other garden variety rabid leftwing ideologue (which includes much of the mainstream media, for what it’s worth) are claiming that it’s actually so damn cold because it’s so damn hot.  And they claim that they’ve been saying this for years:

The former Vice President on Monday responded to Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly’s on-air question last week: “Why has southern New York turned into the tundra?” O’Reilly then said he needed to call Gore.

“I appreciate the question,” Gore wrote on his website.

“As it turns out, the scientific community has been addressing this particular question for some time now and they say that increased heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with what they have been predicting as a consequence of man-made global warming.”

Gore then quoted an article by Clarence Page in the Chicago Tribune in early 2010: “In fact, scientists have been warning for at least two decades that global warming could make snowstorms more severe. Snow has two simple ingredients: cold and moisture. Warmer air collects moisture like a sponge until it hits a patch of cold air. When temperatures dip below freezing, a lot of moisture creates a lot of snow.

“A rise in global temperature can create all sorts of havoc, ranging from hotter dry spells to colder winters, along with increasingly violent storms, flooding, forest fires and loss of endangered species.”

The problem is that their claim is a complete lie.  They NEVER predicted that global warming would create record cold until AFTER the cold blew their theory right out the door.

Who does Al Gore quote?  A scientist?  Does he cite a major (or even a minor) study that shows that global warming would create more cold and worse snowfall?  Does Al Gore even refer to his own film, An Inconvenient Truth, which liars rewarded his lies with a Nobel Prize?  No.  He cites as his source a liberal newspaper reporter who is making assertions AFTER THE FACT.

This in fact is what these loathsome liars had actually predicted:

Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past
By Charles Onians
Monday, 20 March 2000

Britain’s winter ends tomorrow with further indications of a striking environmental change: snow is starting to disappear from our lives.

Sledges, snowmen, snowballs and the excitement of waking to find that the stuff has settled outside are all a rapidly diminishing part of Britain’s culture, as warmer winters – which scientists are attributing to global climate change – produce not only fewer white Christmases, but fewer white Januaries and Februaries.

The first two months of 2000 were virtually free of significant snowfall in much of lowland Britain, and December brought only moderate snowfall in the South-east. It is the continuation of a trend that has been increasingly visible in the past 15 years: in the south of England, for instance, from 1970 to 1995 snow and sleet fell for an average of 3.7 days, while from 1988 to 1995 the average was 0.7 days. London’s last substantial snowfall was in February 1991.

Global warming, the heating of the atmosphere by increased amounts of industrial gases, is now accepted as a reality by the international community. Average temperatures in Britain were nearly 0.6°C higher in the Nineties than in 1960-90, and it is estimated that they will increase by 0.2C every decade over the coming century. Eight of the 10 hottest years on record occurred in the Nineties.

However, the warming is so far manifesting itself more in winters which are less cold than in much hotter summers. According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.

“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.

The effects of snow-free winter in Britain are already becoming apparent. This year, for the first time ever, Hamleys, Britain’s biggest toyshop, had no sledges on display in its Regent Street store. “It was a bit of a first,” a spokesperson said.

Hey, kids.  Do you have any idea what all those tons of cold white stuff that keep falling out of the sky is?  Do you know what that smelly brown stuff that squirts out of the backsides of bulls is?

Watch Al Gore’s movie, in light of reality.  Tell me where you hear Al Gore’s pompous Vulcan voice explaining how warming will lead to more cold and more snow.  What we kept hearing was that global warming would cause glaciers to melt and flood coastal cities populated by millions of helpless people.

That turned out to be a whopping load of crap, just like everything else the left says.  Glaciers are GROWING, not shrinking.  And in fact they have been growing all over the world for some time now.

Global warming alarmists are playing a game with the actual facts.  In this game, they say things that completely discredit themselves.  But instead of the critics of global warming getting any points, the global warmers raise their arms in victory as a touchdown appears in their column.

You’ve got to know who these people are.  They are God-despising pagan demon-possessed ideologues, not legitimate scientists or people who are about the truth.  Global warming is a religion to them, as much as Christianity is a religion to me.

You’ve got to know who these people are.  For years they exaggerated the facts and the data to manufacture evidence supporting global warming.

You’ve got to know who these people are.  In emails to themselves they wrote about using tricks to make it appear that global warming is real.  They openly acknowledged to one another that they were concealing evidence that they were manipulating the data (see also here).

You’ve got to know who these people are.  We find out that after massaging data for years to manufacture a bogus case, that they actually purged the raw data that would have proven how corrupt and dishonest they truly were and continue to be.

The co-founder of Greenpeace says that the environmental movement was “hijacked by political and social causes of  the left.” It’s far more about the socialist redistribution of global wealth than it is about any kind of actual science.  And yet for some mysterious reason, even though all of it’s claims have been documented to be complete bunk,  it’s viewed by the mainstream media as being more legitimate than ever.

You are being lied to.  If you watch mainstream media television such as NBC or CNN, or if you read newspapers such as the Los Angeles or New York Times, you are filling your soul with lies.  And these lies have an agenda behind them.  To the degree that these people are not deliberately lying, they are themselves deluded by a completely artificial and manufactured worldview – and even if you give them that much credit, they still routinely pick and choose stories, facts and sources to “shield” you from knowing what they don’t want you to know.

Think of yourself as a sheep, constantly surprised by cold that, yes, we were told was a thing of the past.  And now you are not only stupid, you are actually stuck in freezing cold hoping that somebody saves you before you die like a frozen fool.

Now picture yourself in one of the electric cars that the left is trying to force-feed society – which makes your situation even MORE DESPERATE.

Please quit being a fool and open your eyes to all the lies.

Harry Reid: When Democrats Run The Country, 36,000 Jobs Lost Is Good News

March 6, 2010

We must be in the Chinese hell of Incredibly Low Expectations.

Reid: 36,000 Lost Jobs in February ‘Really Good’

FOXNews.com

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is catching heat for portraying Friday’s labor report showing 36,000 jobs lost in February as “really good” news.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is catching heat for portraying Friday’s labor report showing 36,000 jobs were lost in February as “really good” news.

“Today is a big day in America. Only 36,000 people lost their jobs today, which is really good,” Reid said Friday on the Senate floor.

Republicans drew attention to the remark, which was captured in a YouTube clip, while bloggers railed against the Nevada Democrat.

Other officials appeared a bit more tactful in their interpretation of the February jobless numbers, which showed the unemployment rate holding steady at 9.7 percent despite prior suggestions that February’s record snowfall might drive that number up.

President Obama called the report “better than expected,” but he added that the number of unemployed is still “more than we should tolerate.”

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer noted that in February 2009, the country lost 700,000 jobs, and that the past month’s report shows job losses are slowing.

“Nevertheless, millions of Americans remain out of work, and Congress will continue to focus on creating jobs,” Hoyer said in his written statement.

Did somebody say “Youtube“?

“Unexpected” has become the mainstream media’s favorite economic adverb.

I guess they got sick of things always being worse than “expected” with Obama.  So now they say it might be really bad, and then terrible news becomes REALLY GOOD news.

There’s another important measure of unemployment that went the opposite way of down, Harry.  From the Washington Post:

Truer unemployment rate rises to 16.8%

Don’t be fooled by the fact that the official U.S. unemployment rate in February remained unchanged from January at 9.7 percent.

The truer measure of unemployment in the United States rose from 16.5 percent in January to 16.8 percent in February.

There are a lot of people who have used up their benefits and simply dropped off the roles.  Some of these people who would like a job very much haven’t had one in two years.  The rate measuring these people went up to 16.8%.  Which is to say that more than one out of every six Americans are either completely unemployed, or are stuck in part-time jobs when they would like to be full time.

That isn’t realy good at all, Harry.

In other jobless news, you also have to hand it to Obama for defeating that terrible job-killing snow such that unemployment didn’t rise by as much as some thought it would.  That damn global warming! As we know, snow is something that this country has rarely ever seen, which makes it perfectly okay to blame bad economic numbers on the weather even though we’ve never ever done anything like that to explain bad unemployment figures for someone like – oh, I don’t know – like George W. Bush.  But I’m confused: should we blame Bush like we’ve BEEN doing for everything bad that has happened, or should we blame snow?

Well, shoot, it’s Winter.  Let’s blame the snow now, and then return to blaming Bush in the Spring.  We’ll give Bush derangement syndrome a rest for a couple of months, and that way when we start blaming him again it will seem fresh and new again.

Now, if the mainstream media can only allege that Dick Cheney has a weather machine in his basement, we could blame Bush for the snow, too.

The way the rationalization campaign of Obama’s mishandling of the country as “really good news” is going, pretty soon it will be, “Well, Obama didn’t start a nuclear war today.  And I consider that really good.”

Of course, on the down side, Obama’s not far from suffering from that failure, either.

Hey, kids, here’s a game you can play at work: try telling your boss that you’re going to lose $fifty thousand dollars of his money Monday.  And then when you only lose $36,000 of his money, he’ll immediately be thrilled about how well you did.

Most Snow Since 1886: Blame It On Global Warming

February 8, 2010

Just one of those little nuggets of reality that illustrate the sheer lunacy of liberalism and the religion of global warming.

We’ve had most snow since 1886
REGISTER STAFF REPORT • January 26, 2010

The National Weather Service says snowfall in Des Moines in December and January is now second on the list of snowiest for the period.

With 6.4 inches of new snow measured Monday at the Des Moines Airport, the total snowfall since Dec. 1, 2009 is now 41.4 inches. That tops 37.2 inches of snowfall in Des Moines during the period in 1897-1898.

The record remains 50.2 inches in 1885-1886.

Driving conditions are slowly improving as snowplow operators open roads and winds diminish, the Iowa Department of Transportation is reporting. The sun is beginning to warm the pavement.

Towing bans remain in effect where travel is not advised.

The Iowa Department of Transportation and Iowa State Patrol announced at 8:20 a.m. that the northbound and southbound lanes of Interstate 35 have reopened to traffic from Ames to Albert Lea, Minn.

Iowa officials advised Iowans with a vehicle that needs towing to first check the http://www.511ia.org website or call 511 to make sure there are no towing restrictions in the area.

If there is not a towing restriction, vehicle owners must call a towing company of their choice to be placed on the list for removal.

What might be even funnier than this is the liberal decision to take something that was revealed to be a complete and utter fraud (‘global warming’), change the name of that fraud (to ‘climate change’), and then believe in the nonsensical fairy tale all over again.

You could paint string yellow and sell it to these people as gold chain.
