Tides of War

Be on your guard, men. Sometimes the enemy waves.
On Wednesday, Barack Obama spoke at the commencement of the US Coast Guard Academy to make the graduates aware of the crucial role they'll be playing in his War On Weather.

Specifically, he declared that "climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security - an immediate risk to our national security. And make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country. So we need to act and we need to act now."

As if this wasn't enough to get the graduating class glancing nervously at the skies, Obama said that failure to embrace liberal climate change orthodoxy amounted to negligence and dereliction of duty.  He then linked the raping, murdering, kidnapping, slave-trading activities of pretty much every terrorist organization to the alleged reduction in the world's precious permafrost. Put another way, he's less concerned with ISIS at our doors than ices at our poles...

Okay, on that last point maybe a connection can be made between "weather" and terror.

In the first release of information coming from the raid which killed Osama Bin Laden, US officials have revealed that besides emails and organizational information, they also recovered Osama's "extensive porn collection."

While we presume that Bin Laden's spank bank contained things like a well-worn DVD of "Deep Goat," authorities aren't releasing any details because of concerns about the "nature" of the porn. Which makes us wonder - why would they care to protect Osama's reputation? Or, might they be protecting someone else...

Explains a lot, doesn't it?

We now know that pretty much everyone in the Obama administration lied their asses off about what really happened in Benghazi. In memory of those who died there, we can't think of any "grilling" we'd enjoy more than that described above.

Never mind the fact NASA just came out and said the polar ice increased 5% and the ocean levels should be dropping instead by their logic.

Proof said...

Obama's seeming obsession with climate change is just his setting up an insanity defense for his impeachment.

Joseph ET said...

It appears to me that Obama doesn’t want to deal with the ISIS issue. Besides the Man Caused Global Warming fraud is more fun and very, very more profitable for him and his cronies including Al Gore.
The Department of Defense posts regular updates on air strikes; the most recent, from four days ago, detailed twelve strikes on ISIS. Twelve strikes! That’s just for show! If they REALLY wanted to degrade ISIS they would be flying maybe 800 or more sorties per 24 hr. day. They would be attacking their supply lines, convoys and depots. They would find out how the fighters get paid, who’s the paymaster and where are banks. And destroy them. Without good supply of money, ammo, food and water the fighters lose the will to fight, morale goes way down then you attack them using the regional Armies. They will run home to mommy. We need to get some Forward Air Controller’s in there to direct the attacks. If they don’t want to use American troops, they could have trained some of the Kurdish fighters to be Forward Air Controller’s. But me thinks Obama likes ISIS winning at least until we get a new President that has the will to win. In the meantime he will drop a few bombs for show and kick the can down the road while thousands of civilians die.

@Joseph ET

With all due respect, your philosophy about destroying ISIS's supply lines is that they are not a state; they are a collective group of individuals that mimic the actions of cockroaches. There is no central leadership, no organizational ethos - just a bunch of idiots willing to die and murder in the name of "Allah". You cannot reason with them nor can you cut off their supplies because they lie, steal, and connive the disenfranchised into doing their bidding.

ISIS holds a victory parade in broad daylight...

Why didn't it end up like this?

Geoff King said...

Evidently Øbimbo and the establishment believe that by inundating us with a steady stream of concocted stories and blatant lies we will lose sight of the truth and accept whatever we are told.
Even after being caught changing historical temperature records to make them appear cooler than they actually were and taking present readings during the hottest part of the day from the middle of black tarmacs, they still are unable to prove any significant temperature increase.
The polar caps are getting larger, the Great Lakes are now practically freezing solid every winter instead of every twenty or so, and here in Northern Arizona we are having one of the coldest springs in history.
Also, I don't know who's porn they found, but Bin Laden died of kidney failure in December of 2001.

Anonymous said...

We cannot forget that Obama the Muslim is not going to do anything to hurt his "brothers" to keep true to his ethos. The greatest trick by our modern media has been their ability to shield the public from the true nature of the man that runs our country (or more appropriately, running our country into the ground...). So he is not going to take any kind of terrorism or do anything to curb it since it all serves his ultimate purpose. I am embarrassed that this man is the President of our great nation.

Cat Whisperer said...

That speech will inspire each and every Coast Guard cadet to do their best to interdict whatever the President was smoking.

Bruce Bleu said...

First of all, lamont is a "whetherman"... he will support the camel-shaggers "whether" is seems wise or not.
"osama obama been spankin'" is a loyal goat "roper". His collection of porn consists of MANY animal scenarios, (including the ones with Shrillary... I mean an obese manatee in a blue swimsuit).

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@James Childress- Funny how the Left attacks man-caused climate change deniers as "anti-science," but then completely ignores what Al Gore would call the "inconvenient truth" of facts.

But we also know that Barry not only ignored the intelligence about the growth of Al Qaeda and ISIS, he lied about it because it didn't fit his political agenda. It's the same thing with his climate nonsense - it's all about punishing America and consolidating government control.

@Proof- I have to admit, it's a plausible defense.

@Joseph ET- I flat out believe that Barry wants ISIS to win because he believes it will create "stability" in the Middle East. The stability of oppression, granted, and the likelihood of Israel's destruction. But I think he'd find those conditions more than acceptable.

@Bobo the Hobo- While I'm perfectly happy to think of ISIS as members of the cockroach family, there are reports that they're actually gaining popularity in some regions because they're taking over traditional government functions and handling them better than was done previously.

@TrickyRicky- You can't very well expect Obama to order attacks when he's playing with his new Twitter account.

@Geoff King- I'm afraid that feeding the public a constant diet of lies does work for this administration and the Left in general. I'm unaware of any impressive evidence of man-caused climate change, and also unaware of any extended period in history which did not experience the fluctuations in climate we're currently seeing.

As I said above, the lies are being told to attack and control our economy and our lives.

Regarding Bin Laden's death from kidney failure, I don't really subscribe to that theory - but I also don't discount it entirely. I've never seen compelling medical proof that whoever got shot up in Pakistan was genuinely Osama - but I have seen the mileage Obama made from the claim that he killed the terror mastermind. Arguably, it's what got the a-hole reelected.

@Anonymous- I agree with your comment except for specifically citing Obama as Muslim. I think he's too full of himself to actually believe in any faith, but that he absolutely favors Islam (even radical Islam) over any other religion.

@Cat Whisperer- Every time Barry speaks, my need for medicinal cannabis grows...

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Bruce Bleu- In Obama's porn collection are classic titles like "The Audacity of Soap," "Wet Dreams From My Father," "The Weewee We've Been Waiting For," and (banned in 43 countries) "Bleeding from Behind."

pottsboro 11 said...

I really enjoyed the "Bill Ayers" reference, but then, I am 66 years old, and have been a cop for 43 years. I remember the progression from "SDS to Weathermen to Weather Underground". They were terrorists looong before the "Muslim Extremists"...

John the Econ said...

That's right, folks. "Jayvee team" ISIS will soon have encircled Baghdad. Millions of actual refugees are fleeing the middle east. Many are washing up dead on luxury beaches in Italy and Greece.

Here's something to think about this Memorial Day weekend; that under Obama, all of the blood and treasure invested in Iraq and Afghanistan will have gone to waste. Obama inherited a stable Iraq and Afghanistan paid for at an incredible cost. By the time Obama leaves office, the entire region will be controlled by oppressive fundamental Islamists who will make Saddam Hussein look like Thomas Jefferson.

Meanwhile, while Obama is delivering his warm-mongering address against America's immortal imaginary foe, supreme leader of actual foe, Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei, delivers his commencement address at Iman Hussein Military University in Tehran. Instead of talking down to and insulting the intelligence of his subjects like Obama, he announces that contrary to what we've been sold on Obama & Kerry's treaty, that there will be no international nuclear inspections at Iran's military facilities and Iran's nuclear scientists will also be off-limits.

And yet Obama chooses to deploy what's left of our military assets towards his theoretical and imaginary threat. Why?

Because "climate change" is the ultimate, unquantifiable bugaboo. It cannot be proven. It cannot be disproven. We're all supposed to take it on faith that the "experts" with their "97% consensus" (meaning that 97% of "serious" scientists who believe that we're causing climate change agree that we're causing climate change) know what they're talking about. Combating it demands that we all sacrifice what is left of our freedom, wealth economy, and sovereignty to the elite. (who will continue to live their 1%-er lifestyles regardless) "Climate Change" is useful to explain away any political problem. Bad economy? It's because of "climate change". Out-of-control fundamentalist whackjobs running amok? It's because of "climate change".

And the solution to these problems is always the same. More government. Less freedom. And as you're made to give up your SUVs and vacations at the beach, the warm-mongering elites will continue with their 1%-er lifestyles, and entirely at your expense.

If you are one of the minority of Americans who buy into this agenda and you are not on the rent-seeking profiteering end? You are a sucker.

John the Econ said...

Correction to the above:

We're all supposed to take it on faith that the "experts" with their "97% consensus" (meaning that 97% of "serious" scientists who believe that we're causing climate change agree that we're causing climate change) know what they're talking about, even though they've repeatedly demonstrated that they do not.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@pottsboro 11- First off, a big salute to you for 43 years of service!

I'm glad you got the layers of the Bill Ayers joke; not everyone will - especially if they're much younger than you or me. How Ayers and his wife aren't in prison is baffling to me - especially since Ayers' role in launching Obama proves that his bomb-throwing days aren't over.

PRY said...

Wow...prolific does not do justice to the amount of material on display here today! Quality stuff, my man!

John the Econ said...

Yes, @Stilton, the "weathermen" joke was brilliant.

If there is a single example of how mainstream academia has been dominated and corrupted by the left, it might be that most of the Weathermen ended up not only welcomed by, but gainfully employed in academia. The joke is that there are kids going 5 or 6 figures into debt to fund the generous benefits and retirements of these highly capitalistic socialist anarchists who rightfully ought to be rotting in prison.

Once again, the elites to the commoners: Suckers!

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@John the Econ- When I did the Trey Gowdy cartoon, I also wanted to include a line about grilling Obama about why he's chosen to make the sacrifices of our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan meaningless. But in humor, less is more and I just couldn't squeeze it in.

That being said, Memorial Day will be particularly somber this year. These men and women retroactively died for nothing because Obama just had to prove that "Bush's wars" were failures by deliberately losing what had already been won. "Traitor" is the nicest word I can come up with for him.

And you're exactly right on the climate change charade. It is a dangerous fiction intended only to degrade and oppress our nation (and other industrialized nations).

If Obama really believed in this "crisis," he'd be ordering mandatory cuts in individual energy usage and consumption, much the way California is now ordering draconian cutbacks in water use. But Obama isn't demanding mandatory cutbacks, or even requesting voluntary cutbacks. Which seems odd for a danger which is allegedly an immediate threat to our national security.

John the Econ said...

"It is a dangerous fiction intended only to degrade and oppress our nation (and other industrialized nations)."

But only "certain" industrialized nations, mainly limited to Progressive western nations. You'll notice that certain nations like China & India only pay lip service to "climate change" while they continue to build coal plants, opening nearly one a week. Russia doesn't even bother to pay lip service.

So the Progressives will continue to impose carbon-limiting regulations what will continue to chase carbon-intensive industries out of the US to China, India and Russia. We're outsourcing both jobs and our carbon consumption. These other countries are more than happy to pick up the slack.

Notice how the "minimum wage" debate has been dominating the news lately? It's not coincidental. "Minimum wage" jobs used to be for low-productivity teenagers. Why isn't anyone asking why people are now relying upon these low-skill service jobs to support families? Perhaps it's because the high-carbon jobs are now in China, where they don't give a rats ass about carbon footprints. It's not a coincidence that America's per-capital carbon footprint has been shrinking while everyone else's has been going up.

There's another aspect of climate change fascism that I neglected to mention above. It's about simple hate.

There is absolutely no aspect of your life from the moment you are conceived until long after you are dead that does not involve converting matter into CO2. So there is also absolutely no aspect of your life that carbon police Progressives cannot easily rationalize legislating. For example, Progressives absolutely loath gender-traitor suburban stay-at-home soccer moms schlepping around their kids in SUVs and minivans. So they're an obvious target.

Since everything you do can be considered "carbon intensive", there is absolutely no limit that a fascists using "climate change" as a legal club could do. Progressive hate blue-collar favorites like NASCAR. So at some point they'll find ways to outlaw it, just for the hate of it.

This is the grand irony and hypocrisy of the agenda. It's actually worse that the worst of the "religious right" that would gladly use the power of the state to regulate people's behaviors on moral grounds. Except instead of an interpretation of the "will of God", Progressives use twisted and phony science to justify the exact same behavior.

OK after all that (pfffffft!), back to the important stuff. Where did Busty Ross go?

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Juanita the Icon- Busty Ross hasn't "gone" anywhere. Both she and Lefty Lucy will reappear on a semi-regular basis when the news du jour is a good match for their special insights. Or when I'm particularly sick of looking at politicians.

Islamic State expands its 'state' By Samia Nakhoul
"ISIS fights like a state... It fields more than 25,000 fighters, including a hard core of ex-Baathist professionals and Qaeda veterans. It has a hierarchical unit organization and rank structure, populated by former regular officers of Saddam Hussein's military," added Kilcullen in the Australian Quarterly Essay.

“The Islamic State already has the foundations of a state.”

I forgot how MANLY saying "all wee-wee'd up" sounded. I can imagine Dick Cheney or Vladimir Puketon using those words and not being lambasted for it.

Ciccio said...

Another climate change doomsday message : satelites have discovers that the Antarctic ice glaciers have been melting and have added 300 cubic kilometers to the oceans in the last six years.That's 300 BILLION TONS, TRILLIONS OF GALLONS OH WOE! WOE! WOE! WOE! Just imagine what this can do to the sea level if it carries on for 100 years, I did not try imagine, I took out my little calculator but the numbers are so huge, my calculator does not have that many digits and I had to do it the hard way with pencil and paper and that number will astound you, spreading all over all of the world's 364,000,000 square kilometers of oceans, 13.7 mm or .52 of an inch.

And yet another doomsday message, the North Pole is melting, when it does you can step into your boat from your 5th floor Manhattan apartment. Just wait a minute there, there is no land at the North Pole, all the ice is floating on water, just 10% of it is above sea level. Since the 90% below sea level has 10% less density that water when it melts the water level will stay exactly the same, ice or no ice.

Let me leave you with one last little thought. When commercial flying started in the 1920's it was too dangerous to have planes landing or taking off anywhere near built up areas and they were all situated in the country way out of town on flat fields. There were no runways, they were flying fields. The one thing that was absolutely essential to early aviation was weather information, every flying field had to have a weather station, they are still there today, about 80% of the world's weather stations are at airports. Where they measure the CO2 and the temperature. Since the fields are now black heat absorbing tarmac and they have all been surrounded by small towns they may all have experienced higher than normal readings from the early days in the 20's but don't worry, the geniuses doing all they predicting have taken that into account.
