African Dictators to Demand 5% of West’s GDP
15 Dec 2009 12:39 pm Dave Blount
It’s a good thing we all have plenty of money to spare, because the socialist dictators lording it over Africa are exploiting the Dopenhagen spectacle as an opportunity to demand a fat cut of it in the name of the global warming farce:
According to a draft text, 50 African countries are considering demanding five percent of rich nations’ GDPs for developing countries, plus deep emission cuts, reports Danish daily Politiken.
The African Group is discussing tough financial demands of the developed countries at the UN climate conference.
In a draft text quoted …
An IPI Christmas: Feeding The Hungry, Bringing Opportunity to Developing Nations
10 Dec 2009 9:00 am Warner Todd Huston
Last night I was invited to attend a Christmas get together sponsored by the Illinois Policy Institute. This year’s theme was feeding the hungry in Africa and bringing economic freedom to developing nations. We heard some interesting presentations from Paul Wormley of the One Acre Fund as well as Tim Probasco of Opportunity International, both involved with helping subsistence farmers in Africa and India to become self-sufficient and to work toward creating financial success by selling their products at market. Both organizations take different approaches toward the same market oriented …
Global Warming Blamed for Cannibal Polar Bears
9 Dec 2009 11:39 am Dave Blount
Time for an update of The List — the media has again resorted to shrieking that the nonexistent global warming crisis has turned cuddly polar bears into bloodthirsty cannibals:
A group of tourists were left horrified when they came across the grisly sight of a polar bear eating a cub in northern Canada.
The large male adult bear had separated the baby from its mother and killed it in the Churchill Wildlife Management Area, in northern Manitoba, close to Hudson Bay.
Witnesses were left shaken and tearful after the incident.
Statist snake oil salesman …
Christmas Trees Forbidden on UN Territory
7 Dec 2009 11:02 am Dave Blount
Don’t look for Christmas trees at the Copenhagen summit, where bureauweenies are gathering from around the world to push global socialism in the name of the polar bears. After all, it’s “UN territory.”
Since Christmas is a religious holiday, it has no place at a United Nations event, said officials planning the event.
A sponsor providing fir trees for the conference’s Christmas trees learned this the hard way when it was turned away by planners of the international event, the Copenhagen Post reported.
The trees, commonly used as Christmas trees in Denmark, were …
Copenhagen Climahypocricy Opens Today. No Limo’s Available
7 Dec 2009 7:30 am William Teach
Climahysterics are showing their true climahypocricy, just like they have done at so many of the other conferences, like when they visited the exotic vacation spot of Bali, and had to dead head (no passengers) their private jets to other islands because there were no parking spots left. So, not only are the ladies of the night free, but: Copenhagen climate summit: 1,200 limos, 140 private planes and caviar wedges
On a normal day, Majken Friss Jorgensen, managing director of Copenhagen’s biggest limousine company, says her firm has twelve vehicles on …
Carbon Corruption From Copenhagen
3 Dec 2009 11:56 am Dave Blount
How appropriate that Denmark, home of the upcoming Hopenhagen power grab, would light the way into our glorious green future by showing us the monumental corruption we can expect when the economy is no longer based on producing goods and services, but on convincing bureaucrats that you are serving Gaia. From the Copenhagen Post:
Denmark is the centre of a comprehensive tax scam involving CO2 quotas, in which the cheats exploit a so-called ‘VAT carrousel’, reports Ekstra Bladet newspaper.
Police and authorities in several European countries are investigating scams worth billions of …
Woah! AP Prints Reality About Point Of Copenhagen AGW Nuttiness
25 Nov 2009 7:43 am William Teach
Someone was seriously drunk at the Associated Press to allow this bit of reality leak into the narrative
Next month’s climate summit in Copenhagen seeks to transform the way we run the planet, from the generation of energy, to the building of homes and cities, to the shaping of the landscape. It would also shift wealth from rich to poor countries in the process.
Income redistribution and control of everything, including your lives. These treaties and laws have never been about science, they are all about politics by people who think socialism …
Global Warming Really Does Create Prostitution
24 Nov 2009 10:44 am Dave Blount
Many laughed when a UN moonbat barked that global warming causes prostitution. But a dry run earlier in the year for the big upcoming global warming hoaxathon in Copenhagen did create a boom for the Danish skin trade.
We have been busy like mad. The politicians do also need to relax after a long day, is the verdict from ‘Miss Dina’, who works as a prostitute.
At last we know what “green jobs” are.
Whatever prostitutes get paid out of taxpayer-financed expense accounts to lay down for slimy left-wing bureauweenies, it isn’t enough.

Thoughts on SPN 2009
6 Nov 2009 12:12 am Warner Todd Huston
I have been missing from the site for several days and I’d like to explain why. I attended the State Policy Network 17th Annual conference in beautiful Asheville, North Carolina. Here is what I found:
Some final thoughts on the State Policy Network‘s 17th Annual Conference.
It was invigorating to be able to share a conference with so many folks of like mind, a conservative, free market, liberty-minded mien. And with nearly 500 participants, the biggest conference they’ve yet had, it was something very worth attending if you are interested in furthering …
Aw. There May Be No Copenhagen Global Warming Deal
29 Oct 2009 10:00 am William Teach
Man, what a shame
Denmark’s prime minister says he does not think a legally binding deal on climate change will be agreed upon at a December summit in Copenhagen.
Lars Loekke Rasmussen spoke ahead of an EU summit at which climate change will be one of the main topics.
“We do not think it will be possible to decide all the finer details for a legally binding regime,” he said.
However, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said that even if no treaty is signed in Copenhagen, he was confident a political agreement could be …

Uh Oh. Another Big Media Outlet Wonders About AGW And Consensus
15 Oct 2009 10:05 am William Teach
Yet another domino has fallen. On Wednesday, the U.K. Mail Online, part of the Daily Mail, was in full wondering mode. After a recitation of some seriously cold weather in the US and Austria, in an article they entitle Whatever happened to global warming? How freezing temperatures are starting to shatter climate change theory, they write
But most pertinent of all, of course, are the growing volume of statistics.
According to the National Climatic Data Centre, Earth’s hottest recorded year was 1998.
If you put the same question to NASA, scientists will say …
Senator Jim DeMint Says Again: Health Care Is President Obama’s Waterloo
6 Oct 2009 11:24 pm Melissa Clouthier
Well, Senator DeMint’s interview was interesting. But I also had the opportunity to talk to Stephen Moore of the Wall Street Journal about the U.S. unemployment numbers and the debt-ceiling. It was scintillating, I promise. Also, Hugh Hewitt and I had a quick chat about the state of the conservative movement. I hope you’ll listen.

The Defending The American Dream Summit Picture Drop (17 pics)
5 Oct 2009 12:42 pm John Hawkins
Last week-end, I was at the Defending The American Dream Summit in DC. That little shindig was thrown by the folks at Americans for Prosperity and it was heavily attended — around 2000 people were at the event, which isn’t too shabby for a political hootenanny.
I drove to the conference, which turned out to be a lot more of an adventure than I anticipated. About an hour outside of DC, my car starts to shake. When that happened, I wondered if it had been happening all along and I had …
