By now you’ve surely seen the story, splashed by Drudge, of Nancy Pelosi letting a certain nasty little kitten out of the bag with “Every aspect of our lives must be subject to inventory” in the fight against Man-made global warming. In China, no less, so talk about preaching to the choir.
Ms. Pelosi justified her curious priorities of going to China to talk about that pressing issue — and possibly a mutual defense pact against Spectre, the Loch Ness Monster and Rodin — at the expense of peripheral issues like human rights in her trademark say anything style. She simply asserted that, by hectoring on global warming — which all draft international and domestic enterprises demand that it be mostly the U.S., with no meaningful sacrifice by world’s-largest CO2 emitter China, that’s supposed to sacrifice in order to pretend we’re controlling the weather — she is talking about human rights. Tell that to the prisoners, ma’am.
Anyway, what you may not have seen yet is the quite relevant Chapter 6 in Red Hot Lies: How Global Warming Alarmists Uses Threats, Fraud and Deception to Keep You Misinformed, “Big Government: How Government, Politicians, and Alarmists Abuse Power in the Pursuit of Power”. It is there that I detail the greens’ wistful descriptions of China as the kind of system that’s necessary to make their stalled agenda reality.
Which if you think about it is pretty much what Pelosi was really saying.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
