While polls show more people drifting away from acceptance of "global warming," the newest superstar among conservatives – Glenn Beck – is embracing it.
"You'd be an idiot not to notice the temperature change," he says. He also thinks it could be caused by man's activity.
At home, he's going green by using energy-saving products.
Beck was obviously a clown from day one. Why anyone would buy into his act is beyond me. He's the Alex Jones of TV.
Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) joined several other Republicans to help Democrats defeat a filibuster orchestrated by GOP leaders by a 62-30 tally. The vote to actually pass the measure is expected tomorrow.
The bill would allow businesses that hire unemployed workers to forgo paying Social Security payroll taxes on them through December and give the businesses a $1,000 credit if new workers stay on the job a full year.
Wow! A liberal politician from Massachusetts crosses the aisle to aid democrats! Shocking!!!!
The Texas congressman who rattled the GOP establishment with his libertarian-leaning outsider run for president has suddenly found himself the target of the anti-incumbent Tea Party movement some credit him with helping inspire.
They say that while Ron Paul's fiscal conservative message is sound, he's a little too fond of pork-barrel projects and nowhere near tough enough on national security.
If you read the full article it doesn't quite say what it's sub-headline suggests. But then it's Fox News. And Fox News considers anyone not cheering on endless wars in the middle east to be the anti-Christ.
Besides, didn't Paul just win a straw poll at this year's CPAC?
Ah yes, CPAC,
California Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) chairman Ryan Sorba generated a media controversy when he was shown at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) denouncing the organizers for inviting a homosexual Republican group, GOProud, into the event as an official sponsor.
Incredibly, McCobin of SFL told me that his group "is not a conservative organization" and that "We spent this past weekend reaching out to the left and the right at both the Young Democrats of America's convention and the Conservative Political Action Conference. We are not left or right."
If they are not conservative, Sorba asked, "What are they doing at CPAC?"
Sorba said the negative reaction he got from some in the CPAC audience came from those in libertarian and pro-Ron Paul groups whose purpose is "to infiltrate the conservative movement and take it over from within." He said that he received strong support after the event from traditional conservatives.
Proving the point, McCobin's SFL is based at the libertarian Cato Institute, which has a conservative view on federal spending issues but promotes a U.S. military withdrawal from much of the world and very liberal social views, such as legalization of marijuana and other drugs.
Adding to the controversy, the Cato Institute has been funded by the ultra-liberal billionaire George Soros, a major financial benefactor of many different "progressive" organizations. The Open Society Institute of Soros has put tens of thousands of dollars into Cato for such purposes as a "lecture series" on the dangers of a war on drugs, a project to prevent a national system of identification under the immigration laws, and a "Civil Liberties and Counterterrorism Initiative" that protects the civil liberties and human rights of accused terrorists.
What's more, GOProud isn't a conservative group, either. Christopher R. Barron, chairman of GOProud, runs CapSouth Consulting, which works for "centrist Republicans"--not conservatives.
So the issue isn't just why GOProud was at CPAC but why Students For Liberty, an admittedly non-conservative group, was there and had a speaking role.
In their Mount Vernon declaration of principles, conservatives called the Constitution their guiding star. But did not the author of that constitution, James Madison, warn us that wars are the death of republics?
Under Bush II, conservatives, spurning the wisdom of their fathers, let themselves be seduced, neo-conned into enlisting in a Wilsonian crusade that had as its declared utopian goal "ending tyranny in our world."
How could conservatives whose defining virtue is prudence and who pride themselves on following the lamp of experience have been taken into camp by the hustlers and hucksters of empire?
The infamous "mount Vernon Declaration". It basically stated that anyone opposed to mass third world invasion, endless wars in the middle east and the continuing progress of left of center political and social ideology is not a true conservative patriot.
So the opposition to the clown in the White House is Glen Beck (a tv show host with admitted mental problems), Sarah Palin (a Former beauty pageant contestant turned "girl-power" femitician), Scott Brown (a republican so far to the left that he was able to take Ted Kennedy's former seat in Massachusetts), Bobby Jindal (an east-Asian Indian headquartered in Louisiana and whose greatest quality as a GOP'er is, apparently, that he is not a White guy), Ron Paul (a 75 year old gynecologist/libertarian presiding over a district in one of the most overrun -by the third world- states in America) and to top it off, a group of gay republicans.
Basically it looks like the cast of some reality show featuring f***ed up -has been- celebrities.
Compared to the "right" The Left defiantly looks like they have their shit together!
And that's a scary thought.
