(ClimateResistance) – Don’t You Believe in Global Warming?

Venture a doubt about climate change politics or ethics, and you’ll likely be asked, “Don’t you believe in global warming?” If you express suspicion about the prominence and function served by alarm and catastrophe in arguments for political responses to climate change, it will be assumed that you don’t understand “the science”, or you simply aren’t aware of “the science”, or you are denying “the science”. As we’ve observed before, the debate is presented as one between sides attached to either the proposition “climate change is happening” or its denial, “climate change isn’t happening”. – Read More Here

A December 18 Washington Post poll, released on the final day of the ill-fated Copenhagen climate summit, reported “four in ten Americans now saying that they place little or no trust in what scientists have to say about the environment.” Nor is the poll an outlier. Several recent polls have found “climate change” skepticism rising faster than sea levels on Planet Algore (not to be confused with Planet Earth, where sea levels remain relatively stable).

The Census, the Constitution, and Civil Disobedience

(RevolutionaryPolitics) – Principled patriots who seek to support and defend the Constitution often point their ire in the direction of the elected officials who represent them—those who have taken an oath promising that they themselves will be faithful defenders of the document. While this is expected and entirely appropriate, one wonders how often such patriots seek to apply the same rigorous standard to themselves. Continue reading

Broadband plan would vastly expand government power over the Internet

(KPBJ) – Statements by Competitive Enterprise Institute telecom policy analysts on the FCC’s National Broadband Plan:

Wayne Crews, vice president for Policy Competitive Enterprise Institute —

The FCC deserves praise for acknowledging the importance of competition among technologies as a key ingredient for promoting a national broadband policy. At the same time, unfortunately, the Commission’s plan seeks new realms to rule even as the very need for regulation evaporates.

America’s challenge is not for the FCC to ‘do something’ in the communications and Internet realm, but rather to dismantle obsolete regulatory impediments that constrain the market’s freedom to expand infrastructure and content access. If we were starting from a clean slate in today’s world, we wouldn’t create a Federal Communications Commission with command over price, entry and services.

If ever an economic sector needed a coherent vision for substantial liberalization, broadband is it. The Internet has been among mankind’s most liberating technologies, erasing the constraints of distance and information scarcity while making broadcasters out of billions of people. Today’s communications landscape has empowered individuals to speak and exchange ideas in ways that our nation’s framers could never have imagined. Read entire article

(LewRockwellBlog) – Whom Will Obama Bomb?

According to the latest CNN opinion poll, only 19% of the booboisie like the idea of Obama’s Soviet-style nationalization of the health care industry. The Democrats spat on the Constitution, as they always do, and shoved the thing down our throats. A lot of people are mighty, mighty pi__ed off at this, and will undoubtedly vent by voting a lot of Democrats out of office in November.

So what can we expect the Marxist in the White House to do to prevent a GOP takeover of Congress? Don’t rule out the most tried and true tactic of all — war. The booboisie always rally around the prez when the bombs are dropping from the sky, even if they’re falling on innocent foreign civilians.
