    What I think this proves is. Leftists are all so radical and self-absorbed, and want to FORCE and JAM their way of life down all people’s throats- you really can’t win with them.

    I mean, shit. We’ve got a Communist in the Wright House and they’re still stickin’ it to Obama.

    I’ll Betcha CNN will NOT report this story!

  7. m2 says:

    Pelosi, Rahm do not scare Rep. DeFazio

    Rep. Peter DeFazio’s phone rang. On the other end was Rahm Emanuel.

    The White House chief of staff last month expressed frustration with DeFazio’s resignation calls for President Barack Obama’s top two economic aides — Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and White House chief economist Larry Summers — and appealed for cooperation, according to DeFazio.

    But Emanuel, known for his blunt manner and ability to bend members of his party to his will, did not raise his voice with the Oregon Democrat.

    “Rahm does not yell at me,” DeFazio said, “because he knows that I yell back.”

    Others are learning that DeFazio, who has served in the House since 1987 and describes himself as a “progressive populist,” is not easily intimidated. He has emerged in recent months as one of the most vocal liberal critics of the Obama administration, blasting the president’s team for not getting tough enough with Wall Street. He’s also taken on his own party for failing to move left-leaning legislation through the Congress.

    Personal calls from Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and former Vice President Al Gore couldn’t persuade him to vote for the Speaker’s climate change bill. He also opposed the $787 billion stimulus, citing concerns that only 7 percent was devoted to infrastructure spending.

    DeFazio was one of only two Democrats to vote against those measures and the $700 billion bank bailout. (The other was Rep. Gene Taylor (D-Miss.) a Blue Dog conservative.)

    Yet he’s also a pro-gun Democrat who has a B rating from the National Rifle Association.

    “I would have less of a voice and I would have less respect if I voted for things I didn’t believe in because of pressure from the leadership,” DeFazio told The Hill in an interview.

    Obama himself has taken notice.

    “Don’t think we’re not keeping score, brother,” Obama told DeFazio during a closed-door meeting of the House Democratic Caucus, according to members afterward.

  8. m2 says:

    Really this Chavez sulfur comment isn’t much out of character for him, the newsworthy bit is he’s calling a Communist- Satan. And the Obama, nonetheless!

    I’m not surprised though. The Left always eat their own. They are never appeased. It all just comes down to: power.

    holy crap, Obama was brokering an arms control agreement with Russia in between his climate summit meetings.

    from the AP:

    It’s possible that Obama’s biggest success here will have nothing to do with the climate. He met with the Russian president and said afterward that the United States and Russia are “quite close” to a new nuclear arms control agreement to replace an expired Cold War-era arms control treaty.

I left some Ho Ho’s and whole fat milk for you, cuz I know you have to have to have high energy food for your trip around the world. I left soybeans out for your reindeer, because they need their energy also.

    I hope your carbon footprint is small, because traveling around the world in one night must consume a lot of fuel. The soy propelled reindeer should reduce the CO2, not so much the methane tho.

    Here is my list:
    a baby seal club
    500 lbs of charcoal for my grill
    a new trash burning furnace
    a moose hunting bazooka
    a 4 wheel drive diesel Hummer
    a herd of belching bovine
    and a nuculer (Bush spelling) powered submarine for whale hunting

    PS.
    As you fly, please don’t smoke your pipe behind the reindeer as I’ve heard methane is explosive.

    We’re keeping score too president dickhead. We’ll turn in our in scorecards in 2010.

    Pelosi, Rahm do not scare Rep. DeFazio
    By Walter Alarkon – 12/18/09 06:00 AM ET
    Rep. Peter DeFazio’s phone rang. On the other end was Rahm Emanuel.

    The White House chief of staff last month expressed frustration with DeFazio’s resignation calls for President Barack Obama’s top two economic aides — Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and White House chief economist Larry Summers — and appealed for cooperation, according to DeFazio.

    But Emanuel, known for his blunt manner and ability to bend members of his party to his will, did not raise his voice with the Oregon Democrat.

    “Rahm does not yell at me,” DeFazio said, “because he knows that I yell back.”

    Others are learning that DeFazio, who has served in the House since 1987 and describes himself as a “progressive populist,” is not easily intimidated. He has emerged in recent months as one of the most vocal liberal critics of the Obama administration, blasting the president’s team for not getting tough enough with Wall Street. He’s also taken on his own party for failing to move left-leaning legislation through the Congress.

    Personal calls from Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and former Vice President Al Gore couldn’t persuade him to vote for the Speaker’s climate change bill. He also opposed the $787 billion stimulus, citing concerns that only 7 percent was devoted to infrastructure spending.

    DeFazio was one of only two Democrats to vote against those measures and the $700 billion bank bailout. (The other was Rep. Gene Taylor (D-Miss.) a Blue Dog conservative.)

    Yet he’s also a pro-gun Democrat who has a B rating from the National Rifle Association.

    “I would have less of a voice and I would have less respect if I voted for things I didn’t believe in because of pressure from the leadership,” DeFazio told The Hill in an interview.

    Obama himself has taken notice.

    “Don’t think we’re not keeping score, brother,” Obama told DeFazio during a closed-door meeting of the House Democratic Caucus, according to members afterward.

    But poking a stick at those in power is what DeFazio does.

    He gives partial credit for his special brand of liberalism to having worked at a country club as a teenager. Each summer, his father ran a camp for troubled inner-city kids on Cape Cod, where they caddied for golfers at a country club. DeFazio would work alongside the kids.

    “They were servants for the rich, as was I,” he said. “I shagged golf balls for rich people. I carried golf clubs for rich people, and I learned very early on, when I was pretty young, that this was a group of people that had nothing special to offer to me or to society.”

    His populism has played well back home. DeFazio won his 2008 election with 82 percent of the vote, even though his district isn’t overwhelmingly Democratic. Obama won it by 11 percentage points, but President George W. Bush won nearly as many votes as Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) in 2004.

    “He is incredibly popular in a district that is actually somewhat difficult for a Democrat,” said Rep. David Wu (D-Ore.), who says DeFazio does it by standing up for his beliefs.

    DeFazio has been a leading liberal voice complaining that the Democratic Congress and White House have failed to capitalize on significant victories in last year’s elections. His latest target is the Senate, where he says Democrats’ struggle to move healthcare legislation is preventing the Congress from sending a job-creation bill to the president’s desk. With the unemployment rate at 10 percent, House Democrats see jobs as the No. 1 campaign issue heading into the midterm election year.

    “It’s just incredible frustration,” DeFazio said. “The killing ground of the Senate is ultimately, potentially, the killing ground of the Democratic Party.”

    DeFazio and other House Democrats led what he called a “revolt” at a caucus meeting several weeks ago. Though Democratic leaders called the meeting to discuss the president’s decision to send 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan, rank-and-file members began talking instead about jobs.

    DeFazio stood up and called for attaching a new job-creation bill to the annual defense-spending measure, which typically gets bipartisan support and is considered must-pass legislation. His speech and others in favor of a new jobs bill drew cheers from colleagues, said House Democratic Caucus Chairman John Larson (Conn.).

    DeFazio has spent most of his time over the past year pushing for the $500 billion, six-year transportation reauthorization bill. DeFazio, the chairman of the House Highways and Transit subcommittee, has argued infrastructure could lead to far more jobs and have a much more lasting impact than tax cuts or other stimulus spending. While Pelosi has thrown her support behind the bill, sponsored by House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Jim Oberstar (D-Minn.), the Senate and the White House, reluctant to raise the gas tax or other levies to pay for the bill, have said that it should be taken up next year.

    DeFazio wants to tax Wall Street to help pay for the programs. Specifically, he wants a tax on financial transactions, which economists have said could generate $150 billion. Though Geithner has opposed it, DeFazio is holding out hope that Obama will find ways to get tougher on Wall Street.

    He praised the president this week for dialing up his criticism of Wall Street bankers and the bonuses they’re expected to receive, just months after receiving billions in federal bailout dollars.

    “That was one good speech by the president, but he’s got to mean it, he’s got to live it, he’s got to do it every day,” DeFazio said. “And these are tough people; these are the most powerful people in the world. They seem to control a majority of his economic team.”

    This Week’s ‘Braying Jackass’ Award

    Barack Obama’s teleprompter gave him a rather poor choice of words to describe the government’s efforts to hijack health care: “We just had a very productive session about the final stages of health care reform in the Senate. And from the discussions we had, it’s clear that we are on the precipice of an achievement that’s eluded Congresses and presidents for generations, an achievement that will touch the lives of nearly every American.”

    That’s only too true — we are on the precipice. Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines it as “1 : a very steep or overhanging place; 2 : a hazardous situation.”

    And about that precipice… Obama sat down for an interview with ABC’s Charlie Gibson Wednesday, in which he warned, “If we don’t pass” this gargantuan expansion of the federal government, “the federal government will go bankrupt.” Didn’t he just tell Republicans to “stop trying to frighten the American people”? But he continued, “This actually provides us the best chance of starting to bend the cost curve on the government expenditures in Medicare and Medicaid.” Furthermore, he claimed, “[I]f we don’t do this, nobody argues with the fact that health care costs are going to consume the entire federal budget.”

    So, spending $1 trillion dollars is going to keep the federal government from going bankrupt? The suspense is killing us — will someone please nominate this guy for the Nobel Prize in Economics?

    Copenhagen’s Income Redistribution

    The UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen is about two things: Control for big government types and the redistribution of your income in a shakedown for poor countries. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton jetted to Denmark to promise the latter this week, tossing the United States’ chips on the table to the tune of billions of dollars. “The U.S. is prepared to work with other countries to jointly mobilize $100 billion a year [to give to poor nations] by 2020,” she announced. Clinton did not specify the portion to be paid by American taxpayers, but she was obviously taking her cues from the Chicago mob in the White House: The bribe comes only if there is a deal reached at Copenhagen. The result would be that we would not only handicap U.S. producers, but tax them to the benefit of our competitors.

    All this comes amid the backdrop of ClimateGate and its patently fraudulent science. Then there’s the record cold snap and snowstorm that Copenhagen has endured this week, no doubt attributable to insufficient sacrifices being placed upon the sacred altar of Mother Gaia. Either that, or Al Gore is to blame, since his presence at these global warming confabs always seems to bring record low temperatures.

    Also, thousands of UN-accredited visitors were denied admittance and left out in the freezing warmth after flying all the way there, which sure didn’t help what was already a carbon footprint larger than any previous climate conference.

    Despite Barack Obama’s arrival and his angry admonition that “The time for talk is over,” Investor’s Business Daily notes, “[A] draft climate accord by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, calling for a 50% cut in global emissions by 2050, has been kicked down the road till 2015 or 2016. Gee, maybe it’s not the most urgent threat facing humankind after all.”

    New & Notable Legislation

    The Senate passed a $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill this week by a vote of 57-35, with three Democrats voting against the bill and three Republicans voting for it. The 1,000-page package includes spending increases for a number of government agencies including the FBI and the Veterans Health Administration. Operating budget funds in the bill amounted to $447 billion, while the balance went toward meeting the growing list of mandatory payments for entitlements like Medicare and Medicaid.

    The bill included more than 5,000 earmarks, which the Democrats took pride in because it was 3,000 fewer earmarks than the 2009 omnibus package. Taxpayers for Common Sense noted that 2010 is likely to see $11 billion in disclosed earmarks, which would be $4 billion less than 2009. However, the progress achieved in reducing pork spending may not be as much as it seems. For example, earmarks for the Army Corps of Engineers in 2009 were re-categorized as presidential earmarks, meaning that $2 billion in pork spending is no longer considered congressional in nature. Additionally, there is still no way to control the amount of money that is steered by lawmakers to particular projects or districts. So, the culture of favoritism that drives the wasteful spending in Washington still exists, it is just being made more, uh, “transparent.” Yeah, that’s the ticket.

    The House voted 217-212 to use repaid TARP cash to “stimulate” job creation. The $154 billion package won’t go to the Senate floor until next year.

    The House passed a $290 billion spending bill this week by 218-214 to keep the government running for another six weeks after it breeched the $12.1 trillion debt ceiling. The House and the Senate initially proposed slipping an amendment to raise the debt ceiling by $1.8 trillion into the $636 billion defense appropriation for 2010, which passed the House this week. The Senate will vote Saturday. The amendment would have allowed the Democrats to avoid dealing with the debt ceiling again until after the 2010 midterm elections. Ordinarily this type of move would have worked since few politicians wanted to see themselves on the wrong side of a defense-spending bill, particularly in time of war. Spending in Washington has gotten so far out of control, though, that a number of Democrats refused to support any raise in the debt limit, no matter what piece of legislation it was married to.

    This Week’s ‘Alpha Jackass’ Award

    “A good, solid B-plus.” That’s the grade Barack Obama gives himself after 11 months in office when asked by Oprah Winfrey for her “White House Christmas Special.” Talk about grade inflation. Obama hasn’t accomplished any of his major policy goals, millions more Americans are unemployed than when he was sworn in, the economy remains shaky, and America’s allies openly wonder about our international commitments.

    News From the Swamp: Bernanke Passes Senate Committee

    “The Senate Banking Committee voted 16-7 to confirm Fed Chairman Bernanke for a second term,” reports The Wall Street Journal. The entire Senate will vote in January. It wasn’t all smooth sailing for Bernanke. Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) said, “I strongly disapprove of some of the past deeds of the Federal Reserve while Ben Bernanke was a member and its chairman, and I lack confidence in what little planning for the future he has articulated. I will be opposing a second term for Dr. Bernanke.” Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) likewise opposed a second term, saying, “As chairman Dr. Bernanke failed to recognize and remedy the factors that paved the road to this dark and difficult recession.”

    Bernanke had received some other good news this week: He was selected as Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year.” According to Time managing editor Richard Stengel, “The recession was the story of the year. Without Ben Bernanke … it would have been a lot worse.” As we have noted previously, however, without Bernanke, the recession might not have happened at all.

    From the Leftjudiciary: Judge: ACORN Can’t be Defunded

    You would be hard-pressed to find good news coming from ACORN these days — or any days, for that matter. Once word got out of ACORN’s willingness to help with illegal activities, Congress quickly passed a bill defunding the community organizers. But the good news came for ACORN when U.S. District Judge Nina Gershon tossed out the law, ruling that the organization was being punished “in the absence of any judicial, or even administrative, process adjudicating guilt.” Obviously, ACORN’s being caught on tape encouraging illegal acts such as tax evasion and child prostitution, in addition to participating in fraudulent voter registration wasn’t enough for the Clinton appointee to rule in the government’s favor.

    Bill Quigley, legal director for the Center for Constitutional Rights (a group “committed to the creative use of law as a positive force for social change”), which filed the suit on ACORN’s behalf, predicted the federal government would not appeal the case, though it is asking Gershon to reconsider. Given the Justice Department’s tendency toward lax pursuit of voting law violations, such as the Black Panther voter intimidation case in Philadelphia, we don’t see them adamantly defending the will of Congress either. So it looks like your tax dollars will head to ACORN once again.

    National Security
    Department of Military Readiness: A Disarming Way With Nukes

    A world without nukes — what’s not to love about that? That’s the message the Chosen One reiterated in Oslo last week as he accepted his Nobel Peace Prize — for what we’re not quite sure, other than wanting to do something about nuclear weapons. Citing his efforts to revise expiring nuclear agreements with Russia, His Worship went on to reaffirm his commitment to disarmament. There’s just one minor problem: We’re the only ones disarming.

    For instance, in the tentative update to the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty of 1991 (START), the U.S. is set to cut nuclear delivery vehicles — ICBMs, bombers and subs — to 800 or less, half the current START limits. Since Russia has a current inventory of 814 vehicles, while America has 1,198, guess who “wins” the arms reduction game here? Of course the “winner” also loses in the national security game, but we digress. The drawdown in bombers hurts our non-nuclear war-fighting capability, as well. That’s because all of our nuclear-capable bomber platforms can also carry conventional munitions.

    Forget about verification, too. The Gipper’s “trust but verify” axiom may be thrown under the bus in the new agreement. Russia announced its intention to end continuous monitoring at its Votkinsk Machine Building Plant, which is where our Red “friends” are building new RS-24 mobile nuclear missiles, purported by a Russian general to compose 80 percent of Russian ICBM forces by 2016. Good luck guessing how many they will actually build if that provision is accepted — but we can trust them, right?

    Finally, while Russia is investing heavily in new warheads and missiles, our own nuclear arsenal continues to age, with no proposed modernization on the horizon. The White House has been silent on virtually all matters related to strategic deterrence (save July’s public kowtowing to Russian demands that the U.S. kill its plans to deploy an anti-ballistic missile system in Poland and the Czech Republic) to have any hope of moving forward on a revised START agreement. Notwithstanding Obama’s disarming overtures toward Russia, none of these efforts have even remotely slowed Iran’s full-court press to acquire nuclear weapons or North Korea’s equally aggressive efforts to expand its nuclear arsenal.

    Nice work, Mr. Nobel-Prize-Winner. Hope we all remember what a great job you did to “earn” your Nobel if Washington or New York are one day awakened at 2 a.m. to an “unscheduled sunrise.”

    Department of Military Correctness: Friendly Fire

    As Christmas approaches, the Obama regime’s assault on our own warriors continues. As detailed previously, court-martial preparations continue for three U.S. Navy SEALs accused of mistreating a captured jihadi. But another case of political correctness gone wild recently came to light — that of Army Ranger 1st Lieutenant Michael Behenna, who is now serving a 20-year sentence at Fort Leavenworth. Lieutenant Behenna was found guilty by a court-martial of unpremeditated murder in the shooting death of a jihadi named Ali Mansur, despite the fact that an expert prosecution witness had evidence that backed up Behenna’s claim of self defense. The expert, Dr. Herbert MacDonell, a specialist in blood stain forensics, was flown in by the Army prosecutors to testify in the case, though it appears that in order to get a conviction, the Army prosecutors did not call on Dr. MacDonell to testify because his evidence did not support their case.

    Thankfully, in both cases, some spine is finally starting to show among our leaders. In Congress, 40 members led by Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN) sent a letter to Army Major General Charles Cleveland, commander of Special Operation Command Central and the man who ordered the SEALs’ court-martial, calling on him to dismiss the charges and exonerate the SEALs. Scandalously, but not surprisingly, the letter was signed only by Republicans, few though there were. And in Lt. Behenna’s case, an e-mail from Dr. MacDonell explaining his testimony surfaced. A clemency hearing for Behenna is set for Jan. 7 in Arlington, Virginia. May justice be done.

    Warfront With Jihadistan: Moving Gitmo Residents to Illinois

    In other news, the administration continued its “Coddle a Jihadi” program, with a whole bunch of pork thrown in for Obama’s “home” state of Illinois, to boot. Obama has ordered the federal government to purchase a little-used state prison in rural Illinois, the Thomson Correctional Center about 150 miles west of Chicago, to house upwards of 100 jihadis now held at Guantanamo Bay. The facility will be turned into a prison that exceeds “supermax standards” according to a letter sent to Illinois Governor Pat Quinn and signed by a gaggle of Obama’s national security team members — and we can certainly trust them.

    Ignoring the fact that bringing the jihadis to America’s heartland paints a big target there and gives them constitutional protections, Illinois pols were gushing over the prospect of $1 billion and more than 3,000 jobs flowing their way. Quinn and Illinois’ senior senator, Majority Whip Dick Durbin, said, “This is an opportunity to dramatically reduce unemployment, create thousands of good-paying jobs, and breathe new economic life into this part of downstate Illinois.” What he left out was “and to spread radical Islam throughout our prison system.” Junior Senator Roland Burris, the empty suit (and head) who replaced Obama, echoed these comments, saying the new facility will be “a great economic benefit to the state by creating over 3,000 well-paying jobs and bringing in valuable federal dollars.” As for Obama, his political career began in the living room of two terrorists, so he’s perfectly comfortable bringing others home to Illinois.

    Regulatory Commissars: Biting the Hand That Feeds

    With soaring double-digit unemployment as the nation heads into an election year, the Obama administration determined that this is a good time to find a scapegoat for its continuing economic ineptitude. Barack Obama blamed the banking industry for making the bad loans demanded by liberal interest groups and for making loans the White House disfavors. “I did not run for office to be helping out a bunch of fat cat bankers on Wall Street,” Obama lectured. “America went through the worst economic year that it’s gone through in — in decades, and you guys caused the problem.”

    He then went on to demand that they repeat one of the things that caused the economic crisis: Loosen lending.

    Of course, they already are loaning money, but those running large banks are not economically stupid. They are borrowing (printed) money from the Federal Reserve Bank at effectively zero percent and then loaning that money to the federal government at 3 percent or better.

    Meanwhile, proving that the left hand is unaware of what the right hand is doing, the federal government is actively de-collateralizing banks by artificially forcing them to reduce the value of solvent small-business loans, which obliges banks to stop lending until the government ceases destabilizing the lending market. Predictably, the flow of loans is being choked off because banks are forced to rely upon other, riskier loans. The Obama solution? Oratorical finger-wagging and intoning about social responsibilities.

    Democrats’ fiscal follies extend beyond the lending realm with a congressional proposal to dramatically expand the mandate of the Federal Trade Commission. Democrats want the FTC to be able to directly litigate against and fine companies that are first-time offenders as well as enabling the agency to cobble together burdensome new rules without having to defend against inconvenient challenges by the regulated companies. Missing from the proposed new expansion is any suggestion that the FTC can be effective in regulating disparate industries with which it lacks any prior expertise, making the proposal appear more like a hammer than a scalpel. Unfortunately, when the only tool regulators have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.

    While the path to growing the economy remains an enigma to Obama and his fellow leftists, the solution is becoming crystal clear to everyone else: Jobs will be created only when Obama and liberal politicians lose theirs.

    Tax Cut Trickery

    Those of you who thought you were living large because Barack Obama gave you a small tax break every week (dubbed the “Making Work Pay” tax cut) might have to think again once you file 2009 taxes next April. While the 2009 tax tables show a small reduction, the IRS notes that married couples with two incomes and those who work multiple jobs may be having too little money withheld — leading to a smaller refund next spring, or, in some cases, people who calculated their withholding to break even will find themselves owing Uncle Sam. Let’s hope that they won’t have a nice little underpayment penalty to tack on.

    Moreover, the Making Work Pay tax cut of $400 ($800 for couples) would also be reduced to those who receive the promised $250 additional benefit for Social Security recipients. Instead of taxing additional Social Security benefits seniors didn’t get because there was no cost-of-living increase this year, their taxable benefits are reduced. As always, the federal government figures out a way to win. It’s what happens when the politicians think it’s their money.

    Village Academic Curriculum: ‘People’ Propaganda

    Goodbye reading, writing and ‘rithmetic. Hello, globalism, wealth redistribution and ecological indoctrination. “A People’s History of the United States,” Howard Zinn’s radical history “textbook” — in which truth is optional, patriotism is disallowed and social justice is worshipped — is now a full-fledged re-educational crusade. In comradeship with two social justice organizations, Rethinking Schools and Teaching for Change, Zinn has set out to infiltrate schools with his self-described “biased account” of history that seeks not to educate but to catalyze “change.”

    Parroting this ideology, Teaching for Change wants your kids to “become active global citizens,” while Rethinking Schools disregards academics and opts instead for “social justice and ecological teaching.” And on being “American”? Rethinking Schools would prefer your little globalist “reach beyond this chauvinism” and instead feel “empathy” for our enemies, terrorists included.

    Hollywood Leftists, including Danny Glover, Marisa Tomei, Matt Damon and Bruce Springsteen, are in on the act, too, teaming with Zinn to create “The People Speak,” a crockumentary based on Zinn’s book. “The People Speak” aired last week on The History Channel and no doubt will be a classroom supplement to “A People’s History.”

    Lest you think your school immune to this socialist propaganda, consider Zinn’s textbook sells more than 100,000 copies per year. That’s 100,000 little globalists who, as Michelle Malkin observes, “will continue to come in dead last in international testing … [but] will have heavier guilt, wider social consciences and more hatred for America than any other students in the world.”

    Faith and Family: Merry Ramadan

    “Allah is God, we recall at dawn, Praying ’til night during Ramadan….” No, this isn’t the prayer from your local mosque. It’s what second-graders at Lantern Road Elementary School in Fishers, Indiana, were taught to sing for the school’s holiday program, which touched on Christmas, Hanukkah, Ramadan, Las Posadas and Kwanzaa. Although the program supposedly was designed to teach “inclusiveness,” according to FOX News Radio’s Todd Starnes, Allah was the only god mentioned.

    And while Allah’s deity was proclaimed with confidence — “Allah is God” — students were taught to wonder if there really was a Baby Jesus: “I didn’t know there was a little boy at the manger. What child is this? I’m not sure if there was a little boy or not….”

    After public protests, the school nixed the Allah reference, but not before demonstrating the truth that politically correct “inclusiveness” means affirming, validating and endorsing all religions — save the ones whose values built our nation.

    From American’s for Prosperity

    Today, President Obama is at the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. This morning he spoke from the same podium that Venezuelan socialist strongman Hugo Chavez used to decry the “silent and terrible ghost” of capitalism – to declare that “capitalism is the road to hell.”

    The enraptured global warming radicals at the Copenhagen conference rewarded Chavez with a standing ovation for his anti-freedom diatribe, telling us everything we need to know about the modern radical environmental movement headed by Al Gore.

    If you have any doubt that many global warming extremists are self-proclaimed communists and socialists – CLICK HERE for an AFP video showing these extremists marching through the streets of Copenhagen.

    President Obama had an opportunity to stand up and defend the economic freedoms of our great nation, which have made America the greatest and most prosperous on earth.

    Instead, he chose to pander to his adoring supporters abroad, saying: “America will fulfill the commitments that we have made: cutting our emissions in the range of 17 percent by 2020, and by more than 80 percent by 2050 in line with final legislation.”

    Clearly, President Obama wants to join these radicals in signing a binding international treaty that will bring cap-and-trade-style energy taxes and energy rationing to our nation.

    As you know, we were in Copenhagen last week for a briefing we beamed back live to 24 grassroots events across the United States (from Billings, Montana to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and in between). Thousands more watched from home or work on our AmericansforProsperity.org website.

    Without a doubt the most frustrating moment of the Copenhagen trip was sitting in the American pavilion at the convention center as Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency head, Lisa Jackson, gleefully touted the EPA’s new finding declaring that carbon dioxide endangers human health and welfare. The room full of mostly Europeans applauded wildly.

    Ms. Jackson’s introducer, the U.S. ambassador to Denmark, talked about all she had done as in the director of New Jersey’s state EPA. What irony…New Jersey has one of the worst economies in the nation – people are really hurting – in part due to Lisa Jackson’s job-killing heavy-handed regulatory policies. Now the Obama administration hopes she “does for the United States what she did for New Jersey.”

    So far, Americans for Prosperity activists have logged more than 13,000 comments telling EPA to obey its mandate and leave climate legislation to the people’s elected representatives. If you haven’t taken action yet, click here to help stop EPA’s power grab before the December 28th deadline.

    We face a long hard fight to overturn or at least mitigate the potentially devastating impact of this EPA “finding” in coming months and years. Speaking in carefully coded environmental-speak, Ms. Jackson discussed what her 18,000 EPA bureaucrats have in mind for small businesses, large corporations and even families. We must and we will hold Congress responsible if they fail to stop what the EPA is trying to do.

    I talked to many individual environmental leaders and activists from Greenpeace, Sierra Club, World Wildlife Fund, members of the U.S. delegation, EPA bureaucrats, and activists from other smaller groups. They’re true believers. In their view only the government can step in and “fix” this problem by forcing individuals to dramatically change their lives, to pay more taxes for the privilege of using energy or creating jobs. Capitalism is THE culprit in their morality tale. Those with a different view are dismissed as ignorant simpletons or denounced as greedy robber barons who must be stopped.

    There is no room for compromise in their world.

    If we’re going to protect our freedoms and preserve a free market that has pulled generations from the muck and misery of grinding poverty, then we are going to have to defeat them in the public arena.

    The good news – the American public agrees with us. Every poll shows support for cap-and-trade policies going downhill. The legislation is dead for this year, after most pundits thought it a done deal earlier this year.

    The bad news – from what I saw firsthand in Copenhagen – our opponents have nearly unlimited financial resources, committed grassroots troops of their own, and deeply entrenched organizations that think strategically and act aggressively.

    We’ve got to be innovative, aggressive, confident, strategic and on message. Most of all – we have to fight each and every day.

    And, that’s exactly what we’re going to do.
