Mich: 8th Grade Students Receive Reply From Obama Concerning Fracking Letter

7 February, 2013

Never mind that the supposed documentary “Gasland” is an easily debunked piece of enviro-trash entertainment and should NEVER be confused with real science.  

Never mind that an 8th grade science teacher is indoctrinating her students with this tripe.  

Never mind that even the director of “Gasland,” Josh Fox, has admitted that there have been news reports of residents in Colorada igniting their tap water since the 1930’s—long before fracking was even invented!  

Nope.  

Never mind all that.  

The important thing, according to this so-called “journalist,” and others, is that Obama wrote back to some of his brainwashed minions and, they are absolutely  “stoked!”:

Lakeview Students Stoked About Receiving Letter From President

FOX17Online

LAKEVIEW, Mich. — Cari Scholtens teaches some very advanced 8th grade science students at Lakeview High School. Now one of them has a letter from the president of the United States.

When Scholtens was teaching the topic of hydrology, a fellow teacher suggested she educate the students about groundwater pollution. Scholtens had learned a bit about hydraulic fracturing while in college, so she too was interested in learning a bit more. Scholtens chose the documentary ‘Gasland’ by Josh Fox, in which Fox takes a journey across country uncovering what he calls as lies, secrets, and contamination.

“Them setting the tap water on fire, really made me upset,” student Mitchell Englund said. ”I did not realize you could do that with tap water.”

At the end of the movie, there is a call for action, and Scholtens’ students were fired up. They decided to write letters to top officials, and Mitchell wrote to President Obama.

Little by little, responses came back from U.S. senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin, followed by one from Governor Rick Snyder’s office. But on Monday, a big surprise showed up to Lakeview High School.

“I got called to the office and I thought I might be in trouble and I saw where the envelope was from and I started freaking out,” Mitchell said.

Along with the letter, there was an autographed picture of President Obama, too. All of the letters the class received are in frames, and Mitchell said he is going to hold onto his very tightly.

“They were celebrities here and they still are,” Scholtens said. “Kids are always asking Mitchell to see the letter and to see his picture, I mean to have those things, that’s something he’s going to have the rest of his life.”

Yeah…  Betcha’ a sawbuck that his signature, like so much of his presidency, was auto-penned.

More Debunking of AGW: Earth’s Surface Temperature Has Remained Relatively Stable for Past 16 yrs

15 October, 2012

Of course, the same Anthropogenic Global Warming alarmist charlatans who tout every seasonal hurricane or heat wave as proof positive that AGW is real are suddenly embracing the notion that we shouldn’t jump to any conclusions based upon a mere 16 years of data:

Global warming stopped 16 years ago, reveals Met Office report quietly released… and here is the chart to prove it
By David Rose – The Guardian UK

The world stopped getting warmer almost 16 years ago, according to new data released last week.

The figures, which have triggered debate among climate scientists, reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012, there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures.

This means that the ‘plateau’ or ‘pause’ in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996. Before that, temperatures had been stable or declining for about 40 years.

The new data, compiled from more than 3,000 measuring points on land and sea, was issued  quietly on the internet, without any media fanfare, and, until today, it has not been reported.

This stands in sharp contrast  to the release of the previous  figures six months ago, which went only to the end of 2010 – a very warm year.

Ending the data then means it is possible to show a slight warming trend since 1997, but 2011 and the first eight months of 2012 were much cooler, and thus this trend is erased.

[…]

Here are three not-so trivial questions you probably won’t find in your next pub quiz. First, how much warmer has the world become since a) 1880 and  b) the beginning of 1997? And what has this got to do with your ever-increasing energy bill?

You may find the answers to the first two surprising. Since 1880, when reliable temperature records began to be kept across most of the globe, the world has warmed by about 0.75 degrees Celsius.

From the start of 1997 until August 2012, however, figures released last week show the answer is zero: the trend, derived from the aggregate data collected from more than 3,000 worldwide measuring points, has been flat.

Not that there has been any  coverage in the media, which usually reports climate issues assiduously, since the figures were quietly release online with no accompanying press release – unlike six months ago when they showed a slight warming trend.

The answer to the third question is perhaps the most familiar. Your bills are going up, at least in part, because of the array of ‘green’ subsidies being provided to the renewable energy industry, chiefly wind.

[…]

[A]ccording to increasing numbers of serious climate scientists, it does suggest that the computer models that have for years been predicting imminent doom, such as  those used by the Met Office and the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, are flawed, and that the climate is far more complex than the models assert.

Obama, Like Clinton in the 1990s, Using Space Systems/Loral to Once Again Export Technology to Communist China

23 July, 2012

I worked for Space Systems/Loral (SS/L) in the 1990s.  During that time, Bill Clinton and Bernard Schwartz (CEO of SS/L) cozied up to Communist China and allowed free access to the technology behind our satellites and launch vehicles.  

On numerous occasions, I personally witnessed communist spies at SS/L taking copious notes concerning almost every aspect of our operations and technology.  I brought all of this to the attention of upper management, only to be given the cold shoulder and told to keep quiet—which I didn’t do.  

After repeated attempts at bringing attention to these communist spies, I was given a ‘time out’ by being sent to a swing shift.  That was pretty much the nail in the coffin and I quit shortly thereafter. 

Had SS/L’s management listened to me, they could have saved not only the United States of America from a massive transfer of space technology to the communists, but $14 million in penalties that they (SS/L) were eventually forced to pay. 

Apparently, no one has learned their lessons and so, we are all doomed to repeat history:


OBAMA’S LOST IN SPACE
ADMINISTRATION APPROVES CONTROVERSIAL EXPORT LICENSE ALLOWING SENSITIVE SPACE TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER TO CHINA

BY: Bill Gertz – July 23, 2012 – FreeBeacon.com

The Obama administration recently notified Congress that it has agreed to license exports of sensitive U.S. space technology to China from a U.S. company that was fined in the past for illegally supplying space support that improved Chinese ballistic missiles.

The State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, the unit that licenses exports of sensitive technology, notified House and Senate leaders on Wednesday of plans to go ahead with an export license for a deal between Space Systems/Loral and AsiaSat, a company owned in part by a Chinese state-run investment company linked to past satellite deals in the 1990s.

Additionally, U.S. government reports indicate that China’s People’s Liberation Army, which is currently engaged in a major space warfare program that involves anti-satellite missiles and lasers, used AsiaSat communications satellites in the past.

[…]

Documents obtained by the Free Beacon reveal that the Obama administration appeared to ignore two U.S. laws prohibiting space cooperation with China. They include sanctions against selling military goods to China imposed after the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre by Chinese military forces, and a 1999 law requiring all space exports to China to be treated as military transfers.

[…]

David S. Adams, assistant secretary of state for legislative affairs, stated in a July 18 letter to Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Sen. John Kerry and House Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and their minority counterparts that unless Congress objects, the export license will be issued for the $263.4 million deal between Loral and Asia Satellite Telecommunications Co., Ltd (AsiaSat) and its Hong Kong representative, Barry Turner, a Canadian resident of Hong Kong. Thailand’s Thaicom Public Co., Ltd. also is part of the deal.

Congress has 28 days to decide whether or not to block the sale.

[…]

Loral spokeswoman Wendy Lewis said: “Space Systems/Loral is very rigorous in our compliance with export control regulations.”

Speaking from my own personal expertise in this matter:  Bullspit!  The communist Chinese spies will infest every aspect of the program, and then some!

According to U.S. officials, the export license will permit the transfer of what the congressional notification describes as “defense articles, including technical data, and defense services necessary for the post-preliminary design review design, manufacturing and delivery phases of AsiaSat 6 commercial communications satellite program.”

[…]

The license to AsiaSat is being carried out under the Arms Export Control Act, and is part of the Obama administration program of seeking a major loosening of export controls of sensitive technology.

[…]

Congressional investigators said both CITIC and AsiaSat were involved in the strategic compromise of U.S. missile technology that grew out of satellite launch and space cooperation between U.S. companies and China in the 1990s.

For example, a representative of CITIC, Wang Jun, met at the White House on Feb. 6, 1996—the same day that then-President Clinton approved the launch of four U.S. satellites on Chinese rockets.

Records at the time also revealed that Loral chairman Bernard L. Schwartz gave large donations to the Democratic Party, including $15,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee on Feb. 15, 1996—just over a week after Clinton approved the satellite launches in China. On Feb. 29, 1996, Schwartz gave $50,000 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

The satellite launches were the first step in the ill-fated technology transfer that made Chinese intercontinental ballistic missile more reliable.

Eight days after the satellite launches were approved, a Chinese launcher carrying a Loral satellite blew up on launch and destroyed a nearby Chinese village.

The launch failure investigation over the next several months led to the improper sharing of restricted U.S. missile technology.

[…]

The two companies involved in the illicit space cooperation were Loral Space and Communications Co. that owns Space Systems/Loral, and Hughes Electronics Corp. In 2002, Loral was fined $14 million for the illegal exports; Hughes was fined $32 million in 2003 for its role in the transfer. A Pentagon technology security report on the tech transfer concluded that “the significant benefits derived by China from these activities are likely to lead to improvements in the overall reliability of their launch vehicles [i.e., rockets] and ballistic missiles and in particular their guidance systems.”

Muzzy Claims Da Vinci was Muslim

9 April, 2012

Of course a Muzzy would claim this.  After all, Muzzies routinely lay claim to just about every scientific achievement ever made (methinks they have an inferiority complex of some sort).   Don’t believe me?   Well, for instance, take a look at the “Jagged 85” Wikipedia debacle HERE.   That’s just right off the top of my head.  There are thousands more examples to be had.  

And now, you can add the following farcical sophistry to that ever growing list:

Da Vinci was a Muslim?

Author of ‘Leonardo Da Vinci’s Drawings’ says in this book he has proved that Da Vinci had been converted to Islam: “The book presents a comprehensive biography of Da Vinci and here for the first time I have proved that the artist had been converted to Islam based on authentic documents.”

(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) – Morteza Khalaj Amirhosseini’s book “Leonardo Da Vinci’s Drawings” contains best drawings as well as a detailed biography of this eminent artist. Based on valid sources, the book proves that Da Vinci had been converted into Persian.

Amirhosseini added: “I have prepared the book in order to address the needs of art students as there was no comprehensive book of Da Vinci’s works available in Iran. We should know an artist by his works, but unfortunately Da Vinci is just an icon in Iran with mythological fame.”

Amirhosseini went on to say that the book presents a complete biography of Da Vinci in which he has proved based on first-hand sources that the Renaissance artist had become a Muslim. However, the west prefers to keep silent on the subject, he added.

He added: “A French writer in the 19th century has evaluated the issue of Da Vinci’s conversion to Islam in a treatise, but the west has banned the publication of this treatise.”

Uh, yeah.  Right.  Sure there was.  LOL! 

Just more speciousness.   Notice that he conveniently forgets to mention the name of this supposed 19th century French writer.  That’s clue number one that he made it up.  Clue number two is that he claims the French treatise is banned by the west.  So, when you do come up empty-handed after an exhaustive search while trying to verify is assertion, well then…  It’s banned doncha’ know, and that’s, like, um, why you couldn’t find it anywhere.  Yeah, that’s the ticket!  LOL!

Voice Analysis: Sharon Bialek is a Liar and Herman Cain Speaks the Truth!

10 November, 2011

My, my, my…  I think a lot of supposedly Conservative bloggers owe Mr. Cain a BIG apology for getting suckered by the Lame Stream Media into spreading false rumors and helping to destroy Herman Cain’s reputation:

Investigator: Herman Cain innocent of sexual advances

ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) –

Private investigator TJ Ward said presidential hopeful Herman Cain was not lying at a news conference on Tuesday in Phoenix.

Cain denied making any sexual actions towards Sharon Bialek and vowed to take a polygraph test if necessary to prove his innocence.

Cain has not taken a polygraph but Ward said he does have software that does something better.

Ward said the $15,000 software can detect lies in people’s voices.

CBS Atlanta’s Mike Paluska played Cain’s speech for Ward into the software and watched as it analyzed Cain’s every word.

If he is hiding something this thing would have spiked way down here,” said Ward. “He is being truthful, totally truthful. He is a man with integrity and he talked directly about not knowing any incident he is accused of.”

The software analyzes the stress level and other factors in your voice. During the speech, when Cain denied the claims, the lie detector read “low risk.” According to Ward, that means Cain is telling the truth.

During the section of Bialek’s news conference where she says, “He suddenly reached over put his hand on my leg under my skirt and reached for my genitals he also grabbed my head brought it towards his crotch.”

During the analysis of that section the software said “high risk statement.” Ward said that means she is not telling the truth about what happened.

“I don’t think she is fabricating her meetings,” said Ward. But, she is fabricating what transpired.”

Ward said nearly 70 law enforcement agencies nationwide use the voice software, including the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.

Ward said the technology is a scientific measure that law enforcement use as a tool to tell when someone is lying and that it has a 95 percent success rate.

After listening to Cain’s speech and analyzing it, Ward said there is no doubt, Cain is innocent.

“When he directly talks about the allegations against him there is no high risk,” said Ward. “It is low risk, which tells me he is being truthful in his conversations to the public.”

NASA Warns of Earth’s Destruction By Aliens if You Don’t Jump Aboard the Anthropogenic Global Warming Bandwagon

Is it just me, or is the AGW crowd getting even more desperate?:

Pay Your Carbon Taxes To Al Gore Or Space Aliens Will Attack
Global warming alarmists invent new hoax after failing with everything else

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
Friday, August 19, 2011

Having failed with drowning polar bears, global superstorms, rising sea levels and a myriad of other manufactured hoaxes, global warming alarmists have invented a new threat to try and persuade us to pay carbon taxes directly to Al Gore and the global elite – vengeful environmentalist extraterrestrials from outer space.

“It may not rank as the most compelling reason to curb greenhouse gases, but reducing our emissions might just save humanity from a pre-emptive alien attack, scientists claim,” according to a Guardian report.

A new study conducted by researchers at Nasa’s Planetary Science Division posits that “green” ETs might get angry at Bubba driving his gas-guzzling SUV and respond by wiping humankind off the face of the earth to “protect other civilizations”.

“Green” aliens might object to the environmental damage humans have caused on Earth and wipe us out to save the planet. “These scenarios give us reason to limit our growth and reduce our impact on global ecosystems. It would be particularly important for us to limit our emissions of greenhouse gases, since atmospheric composition can be observed from other planets,” the authors write.

Is it really any wonder why polls show belief in global warming is collapsing? A recent Rasmussen survey found that 69 per cent of Americans believed scientists had likely falsified climate change data to push their agenda.

They’ve fed us with drowning polar bears, overpopulation paranoia, global superstorms and all manner of manufactured lies in an effort to terrify people into accepting the hoax and blithely handing over their carbon taxes to Al Gore and the Rothschilds, but none of it has worked. Gore’s Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) has all but collapsed. The fact that they have now resorted to playing the “alien invasion” card illustrates how desperate and discredited the climate change cult has become.

Canada: Eco-Freak Kindergarten Teacher Excludes Children From Teddy Bear Contest for Bringing Ziploc Baggies to School

3 February, 2011

Commie eco-indoctrination in action:

Boy Bagged For Taking Eco-Unfriendly Ziploc to School
Kindergartener’s Parent Rages About ‘Propaganda;’ Earth Day Educators Say Teacher Was Wrong

By SUSAN DONALDSON JAMES – ABC News

Isabel Theoret was preparing a sandwich for her 6-year-old son’s Kindergarten class one day last week, when he screamed out, “No Mommy! Not a Ziploc!”

The child, who lives with his family in the town of Laval in Quebec, explained that his teacher would exclude him from a contest to win a stuffed teddy bear if he brought an environmentally unfriendly plastic baggie to school.

“Felix explained with lots of emotion and tears in his eyes that there was a simple condition to entering the drawing: Don’t use a Ziploc bag in their lunch,” his father, Marc-Andre Lanciault wrote on his French-language blog, “Notre Vie” [Our Life].

“Felix reacted as if someone had slaughtered a pig for his ham sandwich,” said his father, who is CEO and founder of the technology company INBOX International.

When the father questioned Felix’s teacher, she responded, “You know, Mr. Lanciault, it’s not very good for the environment,” according to a report in Canada’s National Post. “We have to take care of our planet and the bags do not decompose well.”

The baggie blow-up rippled across blogs in both Canada and the United States, as critics wondered why environmental education had to be so dogmatic, especially among the youngest students.

[…]
Michael Sanera, co-author of the 1999 book, “Facts Not Fear: Teaching Children About the Environment,” said the Canadian incident was not surprising.

“Things haven’t changed,” he said. “Here we have the same sort of pattern we documented in the book — teachers are becoming activists and training their kids to be activists. Secondly, they are latching on to environmental dogma and teaching that as science to kids. Who is to say that kids don’t wash out the baggies and re-use them? Why is the Ziploc a problem?”

The chemicals involved in paper production are more harmful to the environment than thinner, modern plastics, according to Sanera, who is director of research and local government studies for the libertarian John Locke Foundation.

“The key problem is we’ve got a teacher that is on a political crusade and thinks it’s her responsibility to indoctrinate kids and not teach sound science,” Sanera said. “They should teach the science and economics and let the kids decide on their own — after seeing the pros and cons of both sides of the issue.
