Obama Sells BS at Nopenhagen Climategate Denying Summit; A Global Snow Job…

The Socialist-In-Chief selling his BS on the COP15 Stage…

The Majority of Americans will act boldly, decisively and collectively in the face of a common threat… YOU!

We will swarm the voting booths in 2010 and 2012 in numbers you can not conceive, not to talk but to act.

We will send you and your marxist/socialist pals back to the rock piles from which you all slithered and clean up the mess you have made of our economy and our ability for self-defense in a world you have made more dangerous.

You are already a lame duck… you have lost the right and the middle and now???

Your own base deserts you…

Hugo Chavez speech quote at COP15 today, before the BHO’s speech:

“I think Obama isn’t here yet. He got the Nobel Peace Prize almost the same day as he sent 30,000 soldiers off to kill innocent people in Afghanistan,” Chavez said.

Oh and China snubs your call to action, lol: China snubs Obama in Copenhagen « HOTAiR:

While Obama trotted out his familiar exhortation that “the time for talk is over,” the Chinese apparently took him at his word:

“There is no time to waste,” Obama said. “Now I believe it is time for the nations of the world to come together behind a common purpose. There has to be movement on all sides. It is better for us to act rather than talk. ”

But action was hard to find.

A hastily arranged meeting this morning attended by Obama and leaders from a sea of other nations (Russia, Japan, Mexico, England, Germany, France, Colombia, Australia, Denmark, India, Brazil, South Africa, Spain, South Korea, Norway and Ethiopia) yielded nothing. Heads of state say they were unable to dislodge the barriers to a deal all-along:  developed and developing nations cannot agree on the pace of emission control, how to verify pollution cuts are occurring, and who will pay and how much for the inevitable economic dislocations carbon cuts will bring.

Senior Chinese officials — those empowered to make decisions here – boycotted the meeting. Chinese Vice Foreign Minister He Yafei came mainly as an observer. His  attendance was viewed widely by heads of state as a formal Chinese snub of an 11th-hour push for compromise.

The move signaled China’s go-it-alone approach. China has committed only to reduce its carbon-intensity, a method of pollution control linked to increases in gross domestic product the West finds underwhelming. China has also balked at allowing tougher international verification of its pollution control efforts.

Well, at least the Chinese agreed with Obama.  The time for talk was over for them yesterday.

And by the way, Obama, WE… will use a CONSERVATIVE MOP to clean up after you Obamas are evicted from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, to remove the Chicago Marxist Thug Stench.

Meanwhile, you need to do something meaningful about Iran.

They just invaded Iraq and seized an Iraqi Oil Well.

Have a nice day Mr President

Iraqi official: Iranians seized Iraqi oil well

Vincent Price sums up the Obama Presidency quite well…

    I hear Obama is leaving Copenhagen with his tail between his legs. The only way Obama is going to get lucky in Copenhagen is if he brings Michelle.

    I am surprised he didn’t say we must act now or the world will end tomorrow. I think the world is sick of Obama.

    Democratic Districts Won Twice as Much Stimulus as GOP Districts, Study Shows

    Democratic districts have received nearly twice as much stimulus money as Republican districts and the cash has been awarded without regard to how badly an area was suffering from job losses, according to a new study.
    *******************************************

  9. samiam60 says:

    The Mercatus Center at George Mason University reviewed the distribution of $157 billion in stimulus dollars based on publicly available reports and found that there was “no statistical correlation” between the amount of money a district got and its income or unemployment rate.

    Rather, the study found that Democratic congressional districts received 1.89 times more money than GOP districts. The average award for Democratic districts was $439 million, while the average award for Republican ones was $232 million.

    On average, Democratic districts also got 152 awards, while Republican ones got 94.

    The data is sure to fuel skepticism about the $787 billion stimulus bill passed in February that only garnered three Republican votes. While the administration claims it has created 640,000 jobs, critics point to the still-soaring 10 percent unemployment rate in arguing that the stimulus has had a nominal effect.

    Oddly, the Mercatus study found far more stimulus money went to higher-income areas than lower-income areas.

    “We found no correlation between economic indicators and stimulus funding. Preliminary results find no effect of unemployment, median income, or mean income on stimulus funds allocation,” the report said.

    Gropenhagen Conference
    Prostitutes Offer Free Climate Summit Sex

    Copenhagen Mayor Ritt Bjerregaard sent postcards to city hotels warning summit guests not to patronize Danish sex workers during the upcoming conference. Now, the prostitutes have struck back, offering free sex to anyone who produces one of the warnings.

    Copenhagen’s city council in conjunction with Lord Mayor Ritt Bjerregaard sent postcards out to 160 Copenhagen hotels urging COP15 guests and delegates to ‘Be sustainable – don’t buy sex’.

    “Dear hotel owner, we would like to urge you not to arrange contacts between hotel guests and prostitutes,” the approach to hotels says.

    Now, Copenhagen prostitutes are up in arms, saying that the council has no business meddling in their affairs. They have now offered free sex to anyone who can produce one of the offending postcards and their COP15 identity card, according to the Web site avisen.dk.

    Discrimination

    According to the report, the move has been organized by the Sex Workers Interest Group (SIO).

    “This is sheer discrimination. Ritt Bjerregaard is abusing her position as Lord Mayor in using her power to prevent us carrying out our perfectly legal job. I don’t understand how she can be allowed to contact people in this way,” SIO Spokeswoman Susanne Møller tells avisen.dk.

    Møller adds that it is reprehensible and unfair that Copenhagen politicians have chosen to use the UN Climate Summit as a platform for a hetz against sex workers.

    “But they’ve done it and we have to defend ourselves,” Møller says.

    Democratic Districts Won Twice as Much Stimulus as GOP Districts, Study Shows

    The Mercatus Center at George Mason University reviewed the distribution of $157 billion in stimulus dollars based on publicly available reports and found that there was “no statistical correlation” between the amount of money a district got and its income or unemployment rate.

    “You would think, right, that if the administration believes in its theory that government money can create jobs, they would spend a lot of money in districts that have high unemployment,” study co-author Veronique de Rugy said. “We found absolutely no relationship. It just kind of shows that the money is spent kind of randomly.”

    Rather, the study found that Democratic congressional districts received 1.89 times more money than GOP districts. The average award for Democratic districts was $439 million, while the average award for Republican ones was $232 million.

    On average, Democratic districts also got 152 awards, while Republican ones got 94.

    This is from Al Jazeera. I guess this oilfield seizure thing happens pretty often. This article quotes a military colonel who says it happens all the time.

    Iraq-Iran in oilfield dispute

    The Fauqa oilfield has estimated crude reserves
    of 1.55m barrels [File: AFP]

    Iraq has accused Iran of seizing control of a disputed oilfield along the border between the two countries.

    Eleven Iranian soldiers took control of a well at the Fauqa oilfield in Maysan province, about 300km southeast of Baghdad, Ahmed Ali al-Khafaji, Iraq’s deputy interior minster, said on Friday.

    “At 3:30 this afternoon, 11 Iranian [soldiers] infiltrated the Iran-Iraq border and took control of the oil well. They raised the Iranian flag, and they are still there until this moment,” he told the Reuters news agency.

    There was no immediate comment on the alleged incident from Tehran.

    Khafaji said Baghdad had taken no military action against the Iranian troops and would seek a measured, diplomatic response to the situation.

    “We are awaiting orders from our leader,” he said.

    “This well is located on Iraqi land, 300 metres inside Iraq. It is disputed between Iran and Iraq. There was an agreement between the two countries’ oil ministers to fix this problem diplomatically.”

    It was not clear whether the Iranian troops were believed to still be at the oilfield.

    Emergency meeting

    Nuri al-Maliki, the Iraqi prime minister, held an emergency meeting of the national security council on Friday to discuss the situation.

    “The Iraqi president called for an emergency session to discuss what they a describe a violation from Iran, but nothing came out of the meeting and whatever actions they are going to take are still not clear,” Al Jazeera’s Mosab Jasim, reporting from Baghdad, said.

    Jasim said that the Iranians could have been reacting to an increased Iraqi military presence in the Fauqa oilfield.

    Colonel Peter Newell, a US military spokesman in Iraq, said that such incidents were not uncommon in the area.

    “What happens is, periodically, about every three or four months, the oil ministry guys from Iraq will go … to fix something or do some maintenance. They’ll paint it in Iraqi colours and throw an Iraqi flag up.

    “They’ll hang out there for a while, until they get tired, and as soon as they go away, the Iranians come down the hill and paint it Iranian colours and raise an Iranian flag.

    “It happened about three months ago and it will probably happen again.”

    Oil reserves

    The Fauqa oilfield, which has estimated reserves of 1.55 million barrels, was unsuccessfully opened for tenders from international oil firms in June.

    The price of US crude rose to around $74 a barrel as news of the incident emerged.

    “The Iraq-Iran issue is bringing some nervousness in the market but I think there is a very high possibility that there is nothing in the story,” Eugen Weinberg, an oil analyst at Commerzbank in Frankfurt, said.

    “If there is some sort of conflict then the price reaction is too small but if it is nothing the reaction is too high.”

    Amid rumbling discontent, Democrats head for the exits

    While Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid scrambles to assemble 60 Democratic votes for health care legislation that, according to the realclearpolitics.com average of recent polls, is opposed by a 53 percent-to-38 percent margin, several Democratic members of the House are scrambling for the exits on what is starting to look like a sinking ship.

    You may noticed that I avoided using the cliche “rats leaving the sinking ship,” because the four Democratic House members who over the last three weeks announced their decisions to retire rather than run for ree-lection cannot fairly be characterized as rats.

    To the contrary, Dennis Moore (Kansas 3), John Tanner (Tennessee 8), Brian Baird (Washington 3) and Bart Gordon (Tennessee 6) are competent House members who among them have won election to Congress 36 times. Gordon is chairman of the House Science Committee; Tanner was offered an appointment to succeed Al Gore in the Senate in 1992; Baird was lead sponsor of measures to ensure the continuity of Congress in time of national disaster. All have claims to significant legislative accomplishments.

    And to political success in marginal Democratic territory. Gordon and Tanner represent districts that voted heavily for John McCain in 2008; Moore’s usually Republican district gave Barack Obama a small majority; Baird’s suburban district has voted at just about the national average in the last three presidential elections.

    All four cited plausible personal reasons for calling it quits, and none can be unaware that there is a robust job market in Washington for former Democratic congressmen with good political skills. Members of Congress make $174,000 a year; heads of trade associations make upward of $741,000 and don’t have to return to home districts on weekends.

    All four of these retiring members faced the prospect of tougher opposition in 2010 than they have encountered in years. Tanner and Gordon are from what I call the Jacksonian belt, the area settled by Scots-Irish southwest from West Virginia to Texas, where Obama ran poorly in both primaries and the general election last year. Polls in nearby Jacksonian Arkansas have shown Democratic incumbents running even with or behind unknown Republican challengers.

    Moore and Baird are from suburban districts where their views on cultural issues have been a political asset. But in the gubernatorial elections last month in Virginia and New Jersey, suburban voters brushed aside cultural issues and voted for Republicans who ran against higher taxes and big government. That suggests that Democrats in suburban House districts can’t expect to match Obama’s 2008 showings next year.

    These four Democrats are not the only House members who aren’t running for re-election, but all of the 12 Republican retirees and all but one of the seven other Democratic retirees are leaving the House to run for statewide office.

    The question now is whether more Democrats of this ilk will choose to retire — something House Democratic leaders have been working to prevent. They’re very much aware that Republicans in 1994 won some 21 open seats in which Democratic incumbents did not seek re-election, nearly half the 52 seats the Republicans gained when they won control of the House that year.

    Congress Travels More, Public Pays

    Lawmakers Ramp Up Taxpayer-Financed Journeys; Five Days in Scotland

    EDINBURGH — The expenses racked up by U.S. lawmakers traveling here for a conference last month included one for the “control room.”

    Besides rooms for sleeping, the 12 members of the House of Representatives rented their hotel’s fireplace-equipped presidential suite and two adjacent rooms. The hotel cleared out the beds and in their place set up a bar, a snack room and office space. The three extra rooms — stocked with liquor, Coors beer, chips and salsa, sandwiches, Mrs. Fields cookies and York Peppermint Patties — cost a total of about $1,500 a night. They were rented for five nights.

    While in Scotland, the House members toured historic buildings. Some shopped for Scotch whisky and visited the hotel spa. They capped the trip with a dinner at one of the region’s finest restaurants, paid for by the legislators, who got $118 daily stipends for meals and incidentals.

    Eleven of the 12 legislators then left the five-day conference two days early.

    Valdez socked in

    All the experts says the effects of climate change will be felt most in Alaska, home of the ex-governor who contends climate change is no big deal.

    Good thing she wasn’t in Valdez this week when the citizenry got buried under a record snowfall. We’re not talking about your ordinary little dump here. That was in Copenhagen, where world leaders were meeting to discuss what to do about global warming and the Bloomberg news service was warning that Barack Obama and the rest would “face freezing weather as a blizzard dumped 10 centimeters (4 inches) of snow on the Danish capital overnight.”

    Four inches overnight? Valdez got more than four inches per hour at the height of the snowstorm that began there Monday and ran through the week. By the time the citizens of Alaska’s only oil port finally caught a break, the snow was piled 5 feet, 8 inches deep.

    Yes, you read right.
