Iraq: Spiraling Out of Control
Obama: Weekend of Fundraising and Golf (kind of like Benghazi)

But don’t worry. Professor Obama is studying the situation as we speak; I guess in the breaks between the fundraisers and golf. But! He has “asked my national security team to prepare a range of other options (other than boots on the ground) that could help support Iraq security forces and I’ll be reviewing those options in the days ahead.”

Whoa there cowboy… slow it down a bit… don’t you want to spend a few more days (or weeks) consulting the United Nations first?

Sometimes young men find themselves in hostile environments surrounded by bullies who have absolutely no respect for them, and worse have contempt and animosity towards them. It’s unfortunate when a young man finds himself in this position by no fault of his own. It’s foolish when a young man finds himself there because of his own nature, lack of common sense, and ignorant interaction with his tormentors.

When a young man finds himself tagged as a wimp by bullies he has several options; none of them easy, and few effective.

He can offer truce; say we’ve gotten off on the wrong foot. Let’s start over and be friends. Boys who take this approach often place confidence in their charisma and persuasion to win the day. Unfortunately, the result is often more contempt and lack of respect. Bullies put very little weight on pretty words.

He can offer tribute in the form of money or flattery; with predictable results, inviting more and more abuse and demands for more and more tribute.

He can offer threats. Now these can yield results, but only if the bullies believe there is weight behind them. If the young man isn’t willing to put weight behind them the threats are quickly seen as empty bluffs. Without weight, threats may work once, maybe even twice but after that, the young man finds himself in worse shape than when he started.

He can turn to friends for help. Numbers can be good. But sometimes the bullies equal or outnumber the friends. And if the friends are as spineless as the victim, what good are they. They can offer truce and tribute and empty threats… with the same results.

And if you’re foolish enough to try all of these things again and again… all you do is dig a hole deeper and deeper that becomes impossible to get out of. Eventually everyone, your tormentors, your friends, everyone knows there is nothing there. You have nothing to offer to stop the abuse.

Eventually, there is only one thing to stop a bully… if you’ve got it in you… and that’s a bloody nose at the risk of a few scrapes and bruises yourself.

United Nations - Environment ProgramYou really want to know what “climate change” is all about? Well, we got the perfect demonstration of that yesterday (11/20/2013) when 132 “poor countries” threw a hissy fit and walked out of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Warsaw, Poland. Why? Because of opposition to “wealth redistribution” in the name of environmentalism.

These free-loaders claim they have the support of other coalitions of poor nations, including the Least Developed Countries, the Alliance of Small Island States and the Africa Group; which is like saying all the kids on the playground agree with me that you should give me your lunch money. Newsflash… you don’t have jack-$#@* if you don’t have support from the guys with the money… unless you’ve got the means and the balls to take it. (Yes… we may have a pussy for a President right now; but he fears us more than he fears you.)

The UN and “poor countries” expect nothing less than $100 billion to be paid annually (called “reparations”) within seven years by “rich countries” for the sins of “historical greenhouse gas emissions”. Ostensibly this is to “prepare for the impacts of global warming” (heat waves, cold waves, droughts, floods, storms, and lack of storms). This is not, we repeat, NOT to line the pockets of two-bit dictators and corrupt bureaucrats.

“The US, EU, Australia and Norway remain blind to the climate reality that’s hitting us all, and poor people and countries much harder. They continue to derail negotiations in Warsaw that can create a new system to deal with new types of loss and damage such as sea-level rise, loss of territory, biodiversity and other non-economic losses more systematically.” — Harjeet Singh, spokesperson for Action Aid International

To which I say… “You got that right, buddy! And let’s make dam sure crap like this continues to be “derailed”. Actually, with this (Obama) administration; I’m kind of curious as to why they aren’t on board. This seems right up the lefts alley. (This question is answered below.)

Political - Socialism - Environmental March
That aside it seems that Australia, Europe and the U.S. have all argued that the issue should be addressed in 2015. I couldn’t disagree more. This is way to important to wait until 2015. We should tell these little piss-ants to $#@$-off right now; not in 2015.

“The EU understands that the issue is incredibly important for developing countries. But they should be careful about … creating a new institution. This is not [what] this process needs. The whole financing discussion reflects that the developed world knows it has special responsibility. Most of what has been emitted has been done by us.” — Connie Hedegaard, European Union climate commissioner

And this moron is “on our side”…

So what do we (and by we I mean Obama through the State Dept.) have to say about all this…

“A central issue will be whether loss and damage continues to fall within adaptation or whether it becomes a separate, third pillar (alongside adaption and mitigation), which we believe would lead the [United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change] to focus increasingly on blame and liability, which in turn would be counterproductive from the standpoint of public support for the convention.” — a State Department memo

Yeah I know. This sounds like something that would come out of the State Department. Let me help you with a translation.

“We’d love to pay you off; but the people back home would have a cow and we can’t afford that politically right now. $#@%! We’re just trying to keep the whole hoax going. Look what happened in Australia for &*#@$ sake! We’re with you but back-off before people (our people) figure this crap out!” — TL Translation of State Dept. Memo

Speaking of Australia and figuring this crap out… they recently booted their left-wing overlords and are in the process of repealing the country’s “carbon tax”. Taking these talks very seriously they sent a mentally challenged janitor and his flatulent deuschand, named Reginald, to represent the land down under at these latest UN climate talks. This would be equivalent to us sending Joe Biden so you can see why the UN and environmentalists were not amused…

“They wore T-shirts and gorged on snacks throughout the negotiation. That gives some indication of the manner they are behaving in. [And that… that dog… should NOT be eating cheese!” — a spokeswoman for the Climate Action Network. (Side Note: This is an actual quote… except maybe for the dog and cheese part…TL :))

Political - Socialism - Environmental MarxSpeaking again of Australia and of someone to “get’s it”…

“The carbon tax is bad for the economy and it doesn’t do any good for the environment. Despite a carbon tax of $37 a ton by 2020, Australia’s domestic emissions were going up, not down. The carbon tax was basically socialism masquerading as environmentalism, and that’s why it’s going to get abolished.” — (new conservative) Prime Minister Tony Abbott

Yes! Yeessssss! In this day and age, in this climate of bullshit… it is so soooo refreshing to hear the truth… to hear someone in power willing to call bullshit on the whole thing. The carbon tax is basically socialism masquerading an environmentalism… which is really what environmentalism has become and why “global warming” (which became “climate change” when the globe stopped warming) was invented!

So that’s what it’s all about. The evolution (or de-evolution) of environmentalism… which is now just a subset and a means to socialism.

Secular HumanismEmbracing Secularism by Those Who Should Know Better:
It’s amazing how people who have lived under and have even overcome the hell of abject communism and/or socialism still find a way to cling to the foundation of secular philosophy that makes them possible.

At the latest World Summit of 2013, Lech Walesa (Nobel peace laureate) spoke to a summit of Nobel Peace Prize winners at Warsaw. There he called for a new “secular Ten Commandments”; the purpose of which would be to underpin (worldly) universal values.

“We need to agree on common values for all religions as soon as possible, a kind of secular Ten Commandments on which we will build the world of tomorrow.” – Lech Walesa

Mr. Walesa also thinks we need to globally define the economy of tomorrow “that’s definitely neither communism nor capitalism as we have it today.”

So what would this “new” social and economic system be called exactly? Socialism? Walesaism? Any details on how this “new” system will work and how it bring humanity together?

All this leftist intellectual crap is absurd and frankly stupid; but what would you expect from anyone who attends or give any credence to the “World Summit”.

Absurdity:
“Common values for all religions”? The very idea is, to be frank, incredibly naive and stupid. How exactly does one get religions to adopt these new common, secular, worldly values? Christians are warned repeatedly NOT to do that very thing. I can only guess at what practitioners of other religions think of the concept. How open to this idea would the followers of Muhammad be? I say start with those guys first and see how it goes. 🙂

And the concept of secular moral commandments is itself an exercise in abstraction. The very idea behind the Ten Commandments rests upon a higher authority; one that gives the commands as universal truth and a foundation upon which to build a stable society. If there is no higher authority, the commandments don’t mean anything nor does the implied foundation exist.

Secular Commandments? Commanded by who? The world? The United Nations? Mankind? If anything, morals as defined by secular men are as relative and shifting as a foundation of sand. So I’m guessing this would be a “living document” kind of thing? A set of commandments that constantly shift as our culture evolves (progressively of course). Sound familiar?

Leftist Utopia:
This is all leftist utopian bullshit. Like communism, socialism, and Obama riding unicorns; it all looks good on paper, it all sounds dreamy in a speech. In practice it is insidious. We know where this stuff leads. It has led us there before at the cost of millions of lives and it can and likely will do so again. There is after all nothing new under the sun.

Unfortunately Lech Walesa is advocating that we move to a system that we already have. Secularism and moral relativism is the very definition of our society and the direction we continue to slouch towards. Walesa and those who share his view just want to put something down on paper to make themselves feel better about that direction; as if there were a plan.

The First Three:
Humoring the left… I wonder what the Ten Secular Commandments would look like? I can think of the obvious first three right off the bat.

1) WAR IS PEACE
2) FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
3) IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

There you go… just seven more.

Atheist - Blank PamphletSo here’s the Reuters headline: “U.N. told atheists face discrimination around globe”

Think about that headline for a second and what it means. What if you didn’t read any further; what impression do you have of the global treatment of “atheist”.

Now move on to reality and the Reuters “reporting” behind that headline.

This comes (as many stupid, stupid, things often do) from the United Nations.

The U.N. “Human Rights Council” came up with this finding; “Extensive discrimination by governments against atheists, humanists and the non-religious occurs worldwide.”

And to back it up they tell us “In Afghanistan, Iran, Maldives, Mauritania, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Sudan atheists can face the death penalty on the grounds of their belief.” “These nations effectively criminalize atheism (and) the expression and manifestation of atheist beliefs.” Notice anything that all these nations (that represent the whole world) have in common? The U.N. and Reuters sure don’t.

OK… Let me state the obvious. These backward Muslim (redundant) nations persecute EVERYONE who isn’t MUSLIM and these morons at the U.N. interpret that as discrimination against atheists AND that this represents a GLOBAL phenomenon.

Has the U.N. or Reuters even paid attention to world events over the past few years (or decades). There is practically always a Christian (usually trying to spread the gospel) on the edge of being executed in one of these Muslim nations. AND Islamic nations have stated goals to “drive the Jews into the sea” (meaning kill ALL Jews). They have a habit of sending barrages of missiles and bombs into Israel almost daily. And the U.N. conclusion is that atheists are the ones persecuted?

Religion - Islam - Violent

Again, don’t get me wrong; atheists are persecuted… but nowhere near to the extent of Jews or Christians. But the U.N. hates Jews and Christians. Atheists, they like just fine so to them that’s the problem to be exposed and hopefully solved.

This is how propaganda works. It’s horrible that we support an organization (the U.N.) that pushes this crap. It’s even worse that our “free press” (Reuters) just passes it along as news. When you read the facts the real headline should have been “Islamist nations discriminate and persecute Jews, Christians, and even atheists (in that order) and want to force the West to do the same.”

Whoa… TexasLynn… what do you mean by “force the West to do the same.”

Meanwhile these Muslim nations, through the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), are trying to use the U.N. to “obtain a world ban on denigration of religion, especially what they call ‘Islamophobia’.” Translation: “We’ve made it illegal to criticize Islam in our nation and we want to push that on the West through the United Nations.

[TexasLynn Note: This is a perfect example why I say that certain cultures (and religions) are just not compatible with freedom and democracy.]

So, on one hand the U.N. issues a report that the barbarians persecute atheist and other “free thinkers” (and they do); practically ignoring this persecution is for worse against others… And on the other hand the U.N. entertains the bastards when they use the organization to try and force the West into legally adopting this persecution.

Question: Where are the “Moderate Muslims”? Why aren’t we hearing their voices of reason?
Answer: Moderate Muslims are a myth. They are LITERALLY as numerous as unicorns in this day and age. I would love to be proven wrong; but the sound of crickets is all I ever hear from these guys.

Religion - Islam - Moderate Myth

Question: Why is the United Nations even giving these %$#@^ the time of day.
Answer: They are leftist morons.

Question: Why did the U.N. (and Reuters) use Islamic persecution to push the leftist propaganda like “atheists face discrimination around globe”.
Answer: They are leftist morons.

Question: Why do we (the U.S.) still belong to and financially support the United Nations?
Answers: Our leaders are leftist morons; or spineless cowards.

United Nations - CorruptionIn the comments of a separate post; I recently mentioned the United Nations. I’ve been reading up on this organization lately and the more I discover the more I hate it. It has become clear that the United States should abandon this horribly failed experiment in human diplomacy.

    United Nations by the Numbers:

  1. General Assembly: 193 nations
  2. Nations with a population less than 5 million: 96 (half)
  3. Nations with a population less than 1 million: 40
  4. Nations with a population less than 100,000: 12 (The least populated state in the U.S. is Wyoming with over 600,000.)
  5. That means 1/2 the countries in the U.N. have a population less than the size of Houston, Texas and it’s surrounding suburbs. Many of the nations have much, much less.
  6. That half of the U.N. general assembly has a total population of 241 million compared to the population of the U.S. at 310 million.
  7. Many of the nations in the U.N. are practically dictatorships or juntas (military led governments). Russia and China (two of the largest) for example. Meaning their U.N. representatives don’t represent the people so much as a handful of men.
  8. 87 of the 193 nations are classified as “free”. (Source: Freedom House organization founded by Eleanor Roosevelt and 1940 Republican Wendell Wilkie)
  9. 132 of U.N. nations were identified as “corrupt” (Source: Transparency International )

United Nations Funding: (source Wikipedia)

Nation % of Budget
USA 22.000%
Japan 12.53%
Germany 8.018%
United Kingdom 6.604%
France 6.123%
Italy 4.999%
Canada 3.207%
China 3.189%
Spain 3.177%
Mexico 2.356%
South Korea 2.260%
Australia 1.933%
Netherlands 1.855%
Brazil 1.611%
Russia 1.602%
Other 178 Members 18.536%
    The United Nations is Bureaucratic, Inefficiency, Wasteful, & Corrupt.

  1. U.N. “peacekeepers” in the Ivory Coast, held the food they were to distribute hostage. Their price? “Sex for food”; often with underage girls. Similar incidents occur just about everywhere the U.N. sets up shop; including Bosnia and Haiti. A U.N. bureaucrat heading one of these missions said, “Those girls are whores of war. It happens; I will not dictate for morality.”
  2. The U.N.’s biggest “humanitarian” aid program “Oil for Food” devolved into a huge scandal fraught with bribery and corruption. On the positive side it offered an opportunity to clean house of the guilty. On the not so positive side no one was ever held accountable.
  3. A U.N. official who was in charge of reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan diverted half a million dollars from roads, schools and clinics to… himself.
  4. Ten plus years after 911 the U.N. still plans on leading the way in the eradication of terror. Step one, define what “terrorism” is which they have been working on for over a decade.
  5. The U.N.’s Human Rights Council was instrumental in prolonging the genocide in Darfur. This coucil has been rife with member nations that have horrible records on human rights.
  6. This list can go on… and on… and on…

United Nations - Fish Swallor US

    The United Nations is anti-United States:

  1. The U.N. is constantly trying to usurp U.S. sovereignty and undermine our Constitution.
  2. The U.N. is constantly trying to enforce arms restrictions on the U.S.
  3. The U.N. is constantly trying to find a way to expand its funding with international tax schemes, usually involving international travel, trade, and/or financial transactions.
  4. The U.N. is constantly trying to undermine the U.S. economy with global warming mandates and schemes.
  5. The U.N. is constantly trying wrest control of the Internet for itself; setting it up for censorship, corruption, and eventual taxation.
  6. This list can go on… and on… and on…
    And Finally, the United Nations Voting Structure:

  1. 96 Nations with a Population Less than Houston, Texas: 1 vote each (96 votes)
  2. 87 Nations that are dictatorships and juntas: 1 vote each (87 votes)
  3. 132 Nations that are corrupt: 1 vote each (132 votes)
  4. The United States: 1 vote

Yes, I know that the U.S. has special veto powers as part of the Security Council. It’s not enough. We should leave the U.N. for the same reason you would encourage a “good man” to stop cavorting with drunks, thugs, cut-throats, and prostitutes; bad company corrupts good character. It doesn’t work the other way around; we’re not going to reform the miscreants.

We are well past the point where the United Nations is useful. We are well past the point where the United Nations is at best harmless. We are well past the point where the United Nations can be reformed and/or redeemed.

It is time for the United States to do the right thing. At a minimum we should severely cut our funding. Better yet, we should really just excuse ourselves from this gallery of rogues and bureaucrats; expel them from the country and give them a swift boot to the ass as they are leaving.

Climate Change Salesman

Climate Change Salesman

Former adviser to Margaret Thatcher, Lord Monckton was evicted from the UN climate summit after openly stating the fact that “In the 16 years we have been coming to these conferences, there has been no global warming.”

He was booed as he was escorted from the hall and security officers stripped him of his UN credentials.

And some people wonder why more and more of us refuse to place blind faith in “science”. So much for scientific theory, methods, debate, peer review, or even objectivity. This isn’t science, it practically a religion all its own based on a social, fiscal, and political agenda.
