The Greenest Hypocrites of 2007

The great climate change extortion racket
Anyone who still believes that the Kyoto Accord is about actually reducing so-called greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere is in dire need of therapy. Kyoto is now and has always been about redistributing wealth. 11/30/07
Trading Places, Pro-Science Religious Beliefs Were Right

From the Halls of Malibu to the Shores of Kennedy
Democrats claim Gen. David Petraeus' report to Congress on the surge was a put-up job with a pre-ordained conclusion. As if their response wasn't.

An American Beslan?
Last week, CNN’s Glenn Beck aired a weeklong series of reports regarding purported plans by al Qaeda to coordinate a series of attacks at U.S. schools.

It’s al Qaeda’s hope that this would set off a massive war between Islam and the West. - 9/18/2007

'The Perfect Day' - 4 Part Series

Planned Parenthood’s Recent Hypocrisy
Planned Parenthood and its cheerleaders have long claimed they want abortion to be “safe, legal, and rare.” Do they promote things that make abortion “safe, legal, and rare” or do they actually support dangerous practices, ignore legal restrictions, and make decisions likely to increase the rate of abortion? - 9/11/2007

Change of Heart on Immigration?
The White House thinks it’s calling America’s bluff. After its relentless six-year campaign for amnesty crashed and burned in June at the hands of the common people, the White House has come up with a new plan: to start enforcing some of the laws they should have been enforcing all along, and so thoroughly scare the public with the consequences that there will be a popular groundswell for amnesty that will finally vindicate the administration position. - 8/13/2007

Abortion Centers Misuse Heart Drug Digoxin to Do “Partial-Birth” Abortions
The partial-birth abortion ban made it clear that abortion practitioners can’t mostly deliver an unborn child before doing the abortion and killing her.

Illegal Immigration and the Church: Philanthropic Lawlessness
Christians are dividing over the issue of immigration – along lines not necessarily predictable by creed, denomination, or even political bent.

Doomed to red ink - In Sacramento, a 3.8% increase is a 'deep cut'
We know journalists have a reputation for struggling with math, but calling a 3.8 percent increase a “slash” in funding is absurd. [7/19/2007]

Whose Side Is Michael Chertoff On?
Words mean something, and when any official of either the Mexican or United States Government uses the term "migrant" to refer to illegal aliens, they do not believe in the sovereignty of our borders -- or any other border for that matter. [7/10/2007]
Follow the Money: Stem Cells and Subsidies
While the Usual Suspects are busy denouncing Bush for being anti-science, the media debate completely obscures the economic interests at stake. Big bio-tech companies stand to make money from government subsidy of embryonic stem cell research. [7/7/2007]
June 2007
Scientific Research Refutes Many of Gore's Climate Claims

High price for load of hot air

Four Muslim men were foiled from carrying out a plot to destroy John F. Kennedy International Airport, kill thousands of people and trigger an economic catastrophe by blowing up a jet fuel artery that runs through populous residential neighborhoods. [6/2/2007]
Bush’s Push on Immigration Tests GOP Base
President Bush’s advocacy of an immigration overhaul and his attacks on critics of the plan are provoking an unusually intense backlash from conservatives who form the bulwark of his remaining support, splintering his base and laying bare divisions within a party whose unity has been the envy of Democrats. [6/2/2007]
President Bush has torn the conservative coalition asunder
What President Bush is doing, and has been doing for some time, is sundering a great political coalition. This is sad, and it holds implications not only for one political party but for the American future. [6/1/2007]
May 2007
This is What Love Looks Like

Hot Air Study Melts Global Warming Theory
Global warming alarmists may want to expedite their efforts to hamstring the global economy with greenhouse gas regulation. A new study touted as showing that we’re not sufficiently panicky about manmade carbon dioxide emissions actually supports the exact opposite conclusion. [5/27/2007]
Blood of Iraqi Martyrs
Over the past three years, Iraqi Muslim extremists have targeted Orthodox Christians in systematic attacks, aimed at driving them from their homes, their work places, and their churches. [5/28/2007]
Cooling heels on global warming
While the world has warmed by 0.74C over the past 100 years and while temperatures at the Arctic have increased at almost twice the global average there has been no warming at all at the Antarctic. That's right. No global warming at the South Pole. [5/25/2007]

Global warming debunked
A combination of misinterpreted and misguided science, media hype, and political spin had created the current hysteria and it was time to put a stop to it. Man's contribution to the greenhouse gases was so small, only 3.2 per cent of that, hence only 0.12 per cent of the greenhouse gases in total we couldn't change the climate if we tried. [5/19/2007]
Emory U's Religious Left Can't Handle the Truth
Emory University's response to the truth about Islamic Jihad was fairly typical of the responses of campus authorities, including campus religious authorities to the threat of radical Islam: deny the threat itself and condemn those who describe it as intolerant alarmists. [5/7/2007]
Environmentalist Calls Mankind a 'Virus'
The totalitarian impulses of the neo-communists (calling themselves "environmentalists") are plain for everyone to see. This is indeed the pinnacle of hypocrisy and demogaguery. [5/6/2007]
Che and Cho
In scope, range and duration the Che Guevara farce far surpasses any other in modern history. Only the modern era's master huckster and media manipulator -- with the eager aid of his ever-faithful accomplices in the Western media, academia, publishing and filmmaking -- could have created a masterful guerrilla warrior and secular saint out of this hatred filled, murderer, sadist, coward, and epic idiot. [5/7/2007]
The Cult of Che
The cult of Ernesto Che Guevara is an episode in the moral callousness of our time. Che was a totalitarian. He achieved nothing but disaster, murder, and destruction.
No Wonder They're Afraid of Brit Hume
The Democrats' foolish responses during the debate demonstrate their obvious lack of preparation to lead the country. [5/3/2007]
April 2007
New Global Warming Film Confronts Al Gore
Some of Gore’s alarmist claims that Hayward demolishes pertain to melting glaciers, rising sea levels, Mt. Kilimanjaro’s snow cap and the Kyoto treaty. Hayward presents contradicting scientific charts and news clips all the while stating “this doesn’t sound like consensus science to me.” [4/26/2007]
Industry caught in carbon 'smokescreen'
Companies and individuals rushing to go green have been spending millions on "carbon credit" projects that yield few if any environmental benefits. [4/25/2007]
Beating Freedom of Speech
This is a challenge to all Western governments, for it is a challenge to the freedom of speech that is rooted in the constitutions and laws of Western states, and ultimately is intimately connected with the freedom of conscience and the Judeo-Christian view of the dignity of the human being before God. [4/25/2007]
The Partial-Birth Abortion Challenge
The striking fact about the debate here is not that some people are appalled and revolted by what is done in these instances, but that some people are not. They don't flinch from the violence visited on well-developed fetuses in the name of reproductive freedom. Any abortion, in their eyes, is a justifiable abortion. [4/23/2007]
Free Economies and the Common Good
No one can seriously doubt that free enterprise is not only the greatest generator of human well being but that it also serves all classes in society. [4/23/2007]
There's No Such Thing as the Perfect Temperature
Recently many people have said that the earth is facing a crisis requiring urgent action. This statement has nothing to do with science. There is no compelling evidence that the warming trend we've seen will amount to anything close to catastrophe. [4/14/2007]
Forecaster Blasts Gore on Global Warming
A top hurricane forecaster called Al Gore "a gross alarmist" Friday for making an Oscar-winning documentary about global warming. [4/7/2007]
How About Economic Progress Day?
Watching the media coverage, you'd think that the earth was in imminent danger -- that human life itself was on the verge of extinction. Technology is fingered as the perp. Nothing could be further from the truth. [4/25/2007]
Record Numbers Share 'Truth' at High Schools
Reaching its third year, ”Day of Truth” recorded 6,954 high school students from around the nation who wanted to voice their disapproval of homosexuality one day after the pro-homosexual “Day of Silence.” [4/24/2007]
Let's Make America a 'Sad-Free Zone'!
From the attacks of 9/11 to Monday's school shooting, after every mass murder there is an overwhelming urge to "do something" to prevent a similar attack. But since Adam ate the apple and let evil into the world, deranged individuals have existed. [4/18/2007]
Researchers Question Validity Of A 'Global Temperature'
Recently many people have said that the earth is facing a crisis requiring urgent action. This statement has nothing to do with science. There is no compelling evidence that the warming trend we've seen will amount to anything close to catastrophe. [4/14/2007]

Vietnam sends dissident priest to prison
Vietnam has sentenced a Catholic priest to eight years in prison for his pro-democracy activities as the communist regime stepped up its crackdown on dissidents calling for greater civil liberties and independent organisations, including opposition parties. [3/30/2007]
Judiciary won't allow Christian beliefs
A magistrate judge in Sheffield, England, has been told he cannot serve on the local court's Family Panel, even though he's been recognized as having "an unblemished record and is well regarded by fellow magistrates" because he is a Christian. [3/3/2007]
Why Risk Matters
Risk-taking is indispensable for wealth-creation. At the root of wealth-creation is entrepreneurship, and entrepreneurship is impossible unless we are ready to risk testing new ideas, products, and services in the market-place. [3/7/2007]
Scientists have inconvenient news for Gore
There is a rising chorus of concern, extending even to "moderate" scientists with no political axe to grind, over Al Gore's tactics and advocacy. [3/14/2007]
Fix Bad Government with More Government?
The partisans who are scoring political points by gnashing their teeth over the outpatient failures at Walter Reed Army Medical Center are missing the point: The government did it. It is especially aggravating because many of these same partisans want to turn the nation's health care system over to...the government. [3/10/2007]
Global Warming Is Not a Crisis
Extreme weather events are ever present, and there is no evidence of systematic increases. Outside the tropics, variability should decrease in a warmer world. If this is a "crisis," then the world is in permanent "crisis," but will be less prone to "crisis" with warming. [3/9/2007]
Al Gore's Inconvenient Electric Bill
Given that Gore calls the fight against global warming a “moral imperative” in the movie, you might reasonably think that he practices what his movie’s web site preaches. But you’d be wrong. [3/8/2007]
School kids' march in 'gay' parade protested
San Diego parents were especially concerned about the school's elementary-age children marching in the annual event. The group presented the school board with pictures from the parade of scantily dressed men, sadomasochists and drag queens. [3/3/2007]
With five private jets, Travolta still lectures on global warming
Travolta's serious aviation habit means he is hardly the best person to lecture others on the environment. But John Travolta went ahead and did it anyway. [3/30/2007]
HERITAGE FOUNDATION: "How Modern Liberals Think"
February 2007
An experiment that hints we are wrong on climate change
When politicians and journalists declare that the science of global warming is settled, they show a regrettable ignorance about how science works. [2/11/2007]
Let them eat tofu!
Liberals haven't the foggiest idea how the industrial world works. They act as if America could reduce its vast energy consumption by using fluorescent bulbs and driving hybrid cars rather than SUVs. [2/28/2007]
The Fog of Choice
Legal prohibition is important, and will undoubtedly have some positive effect. But the problem of abortion is, in fact, a problem of choice, a problem of understanding and embracing human life in its earliest stages, even when that life can be eliminated to our great convenience. And this is no easy choice to make, not when an entire culture has been enmeshed so tightly in the devil’s snares. [Feb. 2007]
The Two Universities of Texas
How can any self-respecting liberal countenance academic programs in which there is only one side presented to the most controversial issues of the day? [2/23/2007]
Greenhouse sceptics to congregate, Environmentalism the New Religion
Environmentalism has largely superseded Christianity as the religion of the upper classes in Europe and to a lesser extent in the United States. [2/28/2007]
Gore Mansion Uses 20x the Energy of Average Household
The average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year, according to the Department of Energy. In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh — more than 20 times the national average. [2/26/2007]
Mars Melt Hints at Solar, Not Human, Cause for Warming
Simultaneous warming on Earth and Mars suggests that our planet's recent climate changes have a natural—and not a human- induced—cause. The sun's heat output can account for almost all the climate changes we see on both planets. [2/28/2007]
Role of Climate in Polar Bears' Fate Under Dispute
A climate scientist based in Massachusetts, is among those raising questions about some of the most recent research on polar bears. He contends that polar bear populations have actually been increasing since hunting restrictions were initiated in the early 1970s. [2/22/2007]
Row Over Removal of College Cross Takes New Turn
The president of a Virginia college who removed a historical cross from the school's chapel to make it more welcoming is taking flak for allowing the performance of a risqué show and justifying it by invoking the need to "avoid censorship." [2/23/2007]
Inconvenient Truths
When it comes to global warming, apparently the truth is inconvenient. And it’s not just Gore’s movie that’s fiction. It’s the rhetoric of the Congress and the chief executive, too. [2/23/2007]
Preventing Armageddon
Twenty years later, Russia and Iran still prove we need Reagan's missile defense program. [2/23/2007]
An experiment that hints we are wrong on climate change
Enthusiasm for the global-warming scare also ensures that heatwaves make headlines, while contrary symptoms, such as this winter’s billion-dollar loss of Californian crops to unusual frost, are relegated to the business pages. Did anyone tell you that in east Antarctica the Adélie penguins and Cape petrels are turning up at their spring nesting sites around nine days later than they did 50 years ago? While sea-ice has diminished in the Arctic since 1978, it has grown by 8% in the Southern Ocean. [2/11/2007]
Prodigal Nation
We may be a nation of ever-more lost prodigals, but our own decision, for our own lives, in turning back toward the Loving Father, is where changing a nation can begin. In spite of the loud messages that draw our attention to be continually entertained, if not numbed, may we seek out the quiet message of the Lord, who waits lovingly for us to come to Him. [2/4/2007]
Global Warming Skeptics Shunned
The political climate isn't good for scientists with dissenting views on global warming, leaving some researchers to fear that honest research could be blackballed in favor of promoting a "consensus" view. [2/8/2007]
January 2007
Work Matters
Our everyday work relates to and pleases God. It should change the way we think about the businesses and work in which we partake, and perhaps transform how we go about that work. [1/31/2007]
The PC campus – politically corrupt
I'm kind of tired of hearing about our "politically correct" colleges and universities. There's nothing "politically correct" about them. They are politically corrupt. [1/26/2007]
The Abomination of Child Molestation
"But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depths of the sea" (Matthew 18:6) Through the millennia the force of our Lord's admonition glares through. What would Christ say about a culture such as ours, where child molestation is endemic and where we have gone Sodom one better in perversity? [1/23/2007]
Uproar over border agents to get White House review
Amid growing criticism from congressmen and activists of its handling of the prosecution of two Border Patrol agents, the White House promises to review a transcript of the trial. "We've looked at the facts, and the facts are it's an outrage," said Schlafly. "The bottom line is the drug smuggler was given immunity and went Scot free, and two border guards went to prison for 11 and 12 years." [1/29/2007]
New Books Confirm Global Warming Is Natural, Moderate
Two powerful new books say today's global warming is due not to human activity but primarily to a long, moderate solar-linked cycle. Singer and Avery note that most of the earth's recent warming occurred before 1940, and thus before much human-emitted CO2. [1/30/2007]
Chavez's Holy War
It is not often we have the opportunity to watch a dictatorship being established. But few question this is now under way in Venezuela. [1/17/2007]
The Cardinal & Mrs. O’Sullivan
The faithful in the pews have been scandalized long enough by politicians who flout the sanctity of life in the most egregious way while enjoying the congeniality extended to them by members of the Catholic hierarchy and clergy and the honors bestowed on them by Catholic colleges and universities. [1/2/2007]
