I’m also warming toward Rick Santorum.

06/08/2011

In this article, quoting his interview with Rush, are numerous good comments. Things which totally agree with my theories.

He said the political left uses the issue to its benefit no matter what the  temperature is.

“It’s really a beautifully concocted scheme because they know the Earth is  going to cool and warm. And so, if it’s been on a warming trend for a while,  [they say] ‘Let’s take advantage of that and say that we need the government to  come in and regulate your life some more because it’s getting warmer.’

“Just like they did in the ’70s when it was getting cooler. They needed the  government to come in and regulate your life because it’s getting cooler. It’s  just an excuse for more government control of your life and I’ve never been for  any scheme or even accepted the junk science between the whole narrative.”

Now, let’s look at the Mittens Romnavich version.

“I believe the world is getting warmer,” Romney told a crowd of about 200 at a  town-hall meeting. “I can’t prove that, but I believe based on what I read that  the world is getting warmer and number two, I believe that humans contribute to  that. I don’t know how much our contribution is to that ’cause I know there’s  been – there have been periods of – of greater heat and – and warmth in the  past, but I believe that we contribute to that, and so I think it’s important  for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may well  be significant contributors to the climate change and the global warming that  you’re seeing.”

Yes, it has been warmer, and long before the industrial age. Yes, it has been cooler, and long before the industrial age. It does have something to do with an irregular orbit, and solar activity. Not to mention, this “greenhouse effect” so often spoken of. What happens in a greenhouse? You grow plants. Plants give off oxygen. This would be a good thing.

And then there’s the Bachmann clip from that:

“Carbon dioxide, Mr. Speaker, is a natural byproduct of nature,” Bachmann  said. “Carbon dioxide is natural. It occurs in Earth. It is a  part of the regular lifecycle of Earth. In fact, life on planet Earth can’t even  exist without carbon dioxide. So necessary is it to human life, to animal life,  to plant life, to the oceans, to the vegetation that’s on the Earth, to the, to  the fowl that flies in the air, we need to have carbon dioxide as a part of the  fundamental lifecycle of Earth.

“As a matter of fact, carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn’t  even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful  gas. There isn’t one such study because carbon dioxide is not a harmful gas. It  is a harmless gas.”

I read somewhere, I could look it up I suppose, but I see the logic in what I remember so fuck it I won’t, about the ppm of CO2 in a submarine that’s been at sea for 6 months or so. Kinda like the levels that were in the air around Jurassic times. Which would aid plant growth, which would increase oxygen, which would enhance the human condition. And increased temperatures worldwide would increase evaporation, thus moisture in the atmosphere, thus rain, thereby returning desert to farmland if not ocean.

Herman Cain was in that article as well, which leads me to this absolutely brilliant thinker here, Stephen Guy Hardin. One of my facebook friends, and he sent all of us on his list this thought:

By Stephen Guy Hardin

June 5, 2011

One of my biggest reasons for supporting the long shot GOP nomination drive of Herman Cain is that it puts the Democrats on the race defensive, which is where they belong. It is a well know and often stated fact within the conservative political community that the Democrat Party is the party of hate, racial division and racial prejudice.

It is the entrenched operational doctrine of the Democrat Party to label, separate and segregate Americans based solely upon their race, religion, and sexual orientation. The party of Jefferson Davis, Bull Connor, Robert Byrd, Lester Maddox, Albert Gore, Sr. and Al Sharpton, to name just a few, has streamlined the principle of divine and conquer into a monolith of racial oppression and political suppression. The more Democrats, with the gleefully willing help of the progressive national media, can create false coalitions of pseudo oppressed victims, the longer they can maintain their grip on the voting booth and their death grip on the American dream of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

The increasingly high profile of Mr. Cain, as well as the explosion of fellow Republican Allen West onto the national political scene, is proving that the real vision for the future of the American black community is being revealed on the right. The true voice of black political and economic empowerment is growing too strong to be ignored. The only political party in the United States that offers the African-American culture any chance for survival is the party of Lincoln, the Republican Party.

A recent Gallup poll showed Cain with the highest voter intensity score of any Republican presidential contender. Looking at the numbers, Cain is beating out the top tier of presumed GOP front runners from Palin to Romney. Cain’s name recognition has risen 16 points since March and with each passing day and each thundering sound bite the Cain star is on the ascendant.

After being declared the winner in the first GOP debate in South Carolina last month and then winning the straw polls at the Tea Party Patriots convention in February and the Conservative Values Conference in Iowa in March, a noticeable sea change of momentum has begun to shape the perception of the political novice from outside the D.C. establishment.

While many of the so-called professional political talking heads dismiss any real chance of Mr. Cain getting the GOP nomination he is pushing all the right buttons for an electorate that is weary of the barely concealed yellow, liberal streak that has permeated the Grand Old Party. The level of excitement for Herman Cain’s out spoken conservatism has highlighted what has been missing in the Republican Party since John McCain drove us off the cliff in 2008.

Herman Cain’s strong conservative stances has stood him well within the ranks of Tea Party activists nationwide, who have grown frustrated and angry at being labeled racists by a progressive national media dedicated to reelecting Barack Obama. The Tea Party, far from being the racist reactionaries that the east coast liberal media elites wish they were, recognize the promise and the real hope for an America based on values and individual liberty that a Cain presidency would represent.

“Tea party people love him,” said Jenny Beth Martin, the co-founder of Tea Party Patriots. “He’s not a senator or a governor. He’s just a mister.”

After witnessing the soul killing, cultural destruction sown upon countless generations of African-American families by a Democrat political agenda, whose sole purpose was the generational enslavement of a permanent voting bloc, a growing number of leaders within the black community are standing up, speaking out and fighting to take back the political future of their people.

In a history fraught with enslavement, persecution, prejudice and injustice, the hope for the future lies not with more entitlements and more false promises, but with the realization of true political freedom. The only path to true political freedom is through the removal of the yoke of political enslavement placed upon the black culture by the Democrat Party.

In the years to come people will look upon this time in our history, not as the age of Obama and the hypocrisy of his campaign promises, but the rising up of black conservatives, the rebirth of a proud people who have been oppressed by the party claiming to speak for them and the beginning of the era of Cain.

I look at that as another excellent reason to support Cain. The man is brilliant, he’s proven himself in the financial world, and he’s a hell of a lot blacker than the demoncrap. So, what are they going to say there that doesn’t show their hand? He’s not  puppet like Obama, they won’t be able to tempt him to do what he does for them, and then “Okay, you’ve earned your treat, go on another holiday”.

The only question there is “Will we even BE able to take this country back?” You know the machines are rigged in an awful lot of places. Last several elections they’ve been caught. YOU vote R, IT reads and sends D. So, will we need to go fourth box?

I’ve got a bunch more stuff, but it’s coming time to get ready for work. I’ll see how much I can cram in in the morning before I crash, but this post did seem to stay on one topic. Kinda.

    Clammy – here’s the link I promised you – it links to the newsbusters piece but I like it without commentary first. I mean, I don’t need to point out the obvious. http://purelypolitics.blogspot.com/2011/06/best-thing-youll-read-all-week.html

    For anyone interested in the entire interview with Santorum here is a link

    I’m rather ambivalent towards Santorum. He hit all the right notes though. I just can’t forger how he backed Specter here in Pennsylvania over Toomey and I really git the impression from his guest hosting The Bill Bennett Radio show that he made way to many apologies for the ruling class republicans in congress.

    BTW he lost here for three reasons: 1) 2006 was a wave election and he got especially caught up as he was in the Senate leadership; 2) He as running against a ghost as his opponent was the name sake of a popular(long deceased) and I am convinced a lot of voters thought they were voting for his father. Also his opponent masqueraded as pro-life like his father but as far as I can tell he has voted the party line on this matter; 3) He lost a lot of support for his endorsement of Snarlin’ Arlen Specter as he showed himself to be more party apparatchik than a principled conservative

    From the interview.

    In 2006 it was a horrible election year, and, you know, I lost. But I lost because I continued to be a constant conservative

    Was this a misspeak or a Freudian slip. Given his history it can’t just be dismissed out of hand.

    Re: The Herminator

    Love him. If he can get his foreign policy act together he is just the guy we need

    Yes, he has some history. Some unfortunate bad history. Show me a revelation that he’s come around, because some of that bad history is REALLY bad. But Ionly said warming, not on fire. The Herminator now, THERE is a man I can catch fire for!

    I’m cooling towards Santorum. He may not be the man I thought he was. I’d always had a very high opinion of him; but am just now learning a few things that leave me wondering. I would still gladly vote for him if he wins the Republican Nomination (which is NOT true of all candidates — i.e., Romney).

    The Specter backing (twice) is bad, but not necessarily a deal breaker.
    I want to know more about him so that I can decide if he’s still someone I could potentially vote for. I’d love to hear all possible dirt on Santorum from conservatives who know him better than I do (I’m lookin’ at you Fxcpa).

    Since you asked so nicely how about this tidbit

    Not necessarily the act of a small government constitutionalist is it. His explanation is a little disingenuous as he was one of the leaders in the senate at the time and would have had a hand in getting it through.

    Now people can have a change of heart and do not question his social conservative
    stances as he is sincerely devoted to those pro life/pro family(7 kids including one who has a severe birth defect) causes but I think he may fall into the compasssionate conservative bucket.

    I also think his fiscal consevatism crashes on the rocks of him being a party apparatchik reality

    And this is why I put some questionable thoughts out there. There are those I know will dig up the facts I may or may not have, who will give answer to doubts or quandaries. I had remembered some of these, but so much the better when my mental fog may be blown clear.

    Thanks, fx. My hesitation is rewarded.

    I think you may be right. And thanks for the info.

    There are few single issues that are deal-breakers for me; what’s more important is a line of acts, statements, or decisions that indicate that a candidate’s conservatism may be only skin deep.

    Also, did you notice that in the article you linked Santorum is quoted as saying “It was a 51-49 vote. In retrospect, it should have been a 51-49 vote the other way.”

    Uh, … is he counting someone else, or does his vote count as two?

    Part II of this link will give you an overview of what the bill entails

    I think perhaps the appeal of this was that it set up HSA’s which has been a goal of conservative reformers.

    Here are some words of encouragement from “the Herminator

    Positive, up-beat and confident. This is all part of being a good leader.

    Of course the fact that he smacks Ear-leader upside his head is satisfying, too!

  11. 06/10/2011 08:35

    Thanks for all of that, fx. All of these things must be researched and brought to light. I am so pleased to have you reading my site and bringing that light! Sams, I’m glad to offer a forum such as this that you may learn.
