So President Obama has announced he will award the United States’ Presidential Medal of Freedom to John Adams, “the planet’s lawyer” and founder of the Natural Resources Defense Council. NRDC, which among other anti-growth campaigns advocates and sues to have the U.S.’s most abundant energy source regulated into oblivion, is of course a major Democrat campaign supporter, a key part of that team’s political and public affairs operation.
Little did I know, when stumbling into a meeting with NRDC officials in Enron’s suite of offices across from the White House in June 1997, where they and my boss (during my appx. three week tenure as director of federal government relations for Enron, abbreviated by our clearly different views on such things) were trying to devise a plan for getting a global warming treaty with the US roped in and a domestic cap-n-trade scheme, that I was witnessing such patriotic work.
Poor Ken Lay died far too young to be granted his proper due, it seems. Still, for NRDC, can a Nobel Peace Prize and Oscar be far behind?
NOTE: Here’s how the lovely NRDC agenda for the US is working out in the UK, from today’s Daily Express. As headlined by the GWPF daily news update passing the item along, “Britain’s Green Energy Policy is Killing the Old and Vulnerable.”
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
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?
