It is apparent to many that Obama cares nothing for the truth, the law or the constitution and will go to any lengths to force his agendas down the throats of Americans. Organizing for Action (OFA) launched "Action August" this month to target climate change deniers and promote the climate change agenda. Their activities have caught the attention of Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe, who is now investigating an "apparent coordination" between the Obama administration and the OFA, which may include potential Hatch Act violations, according to the Daily Caller.
Sen. Inhofe said, "There seems to be a coincidental coordination between the White House, the president's campaign, and the liberal media that is weaving a false and potentially harmful narrative of alarmism. Just as the OFA has called for light to be shed on members of Congress not in lockstep with the President's agenda, I will work to shed light on the coincidence of coordination in the Obama Administration we continue to see unfold."
The Daily Caller reports:
Inhofe sent letters to Curt Spalding, regional administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency, and Nancy Sutley, chairman on the White House Council on Environmental Quality, requesting records between the EPA and the White House and correspondence regarding planning of CEQ events.
"The OFA activities are clearly political in nature, solely targeting Republican members of the House and Senate for campaign purposes," Inhofe wrote in his letters. "This is alarming because on February 25 of this year … White House Press Secretary Jay Carney claimed that OFA was an independent organization and would not be engaged in political activities. Clearly OFA is now engaging in political activities and it appears as though they are closely coordinating efforts with EPA and CEQ, negating their independence."
OFA held rallies this week to push President Obama's new plan to tackle global warming and to lambast members of Congress who question the science behind man-made global warming.
"OFA volunteers will turn out in districts represented by members of Congress who are ready to be a part of the solution and support action on climate change," the group said of Tuesday's events. "And in the districts of climate change deniers, OFA will be handing out 'awards' to those members for their perseverance in standing strong against the overwhelming judgment of science."
OFA volunteers delivered "Climate Denier Awards" – unicorn trophies – to members of congress they branded as "climate deniers" on Tuesday. The following day, the White House held environmental advocacy events in Rhode Island and Connecticut, according to Inhofe.
The OFA presented climate denier awards in the form of unicorn trophies to those members of congress who questioned the overwhelming judgment of science behind man-made global warming. That is one more ironic gesture there. The avid "our current lifestyle causes global warming" crowd looks at only one side of the scientific data, calls it fact and presents "unicorn trophies" to those who beg to differ. You can bet every one of those individuals has a laptop, iPhone, iPad or other device that is charged by something other than solar panels or windmills.
This is a good example of Chicago type thuggery. Obama can't directly attack members of Congress who disagree with him; therefore, he gets his associates in the form of the OFA to do it for him all the while claiming the OFA is an independent organization and not engaged in political activity.
Republicans Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Rep. Mike Coffman of Colorado, Rep. Rodney Davis of Illinois and Rep. Dan Benishek of Michigan have been targeted by the League of Conservation in a $2 million ad campaign after being labeled "anti-science" by the group.
Gene Karpinski, LCV president, said, "The American people are tired of Washington politicians ignoring basic scientific facts and standing in the way of action on climate change. This ad campaign shows that members of Congress won't be able to sweep their extreme, anti-science voting records under the rug."
Excuse me?! Mr. Karpinski should be extremely careful about speaking for the entire American people. If anyone is "ignoring basic scientific facts," it is those who refuse to look at the dissenting evidence or acknowledge that all factors about the Earth are not known to science and see that the data and projections do not meet the criteria of the scientific method. But, Mr. Karpinski is interested in none of that since he drank so many "Obama mamas" his eyes have clouded over, his brain is fuzzed, and he's stumbling around spouting emotional epithets in slurred speech consisting of "I love ya, earth" and "don't do this in my house" equivalents regarding climate change.
It should come as no surprise the lame steam enemedia has picked up the flag of global warming, with MSNBC host Chris Hayes scheduled to air an hour long segment on the issue. "Climate change is a problem without borders, and developing countries are feeling the heat even more than the first world," according to Hayes. "The price for politics as usual is just too high, our timeline too short. … The solution to global warming is just that --- global."
Hayes mentions "developing countries" feeling the effects of global warming more than the "first world." Interesting statement considering there are no scientific facts to back that up. But, facts are not useful to the left or the lame stream enemedia as those produce little results because that makes news boring. No, it's better to pee on someone's head, tell them it's raining and the sky will fall any minute, and the blame is on the American people; this gets results as emotions are powerful, useful tools the left uses to get the ignorant stupid to take action. After all, anyone following this illegitimate, illegal president already believes his outlook that America, in its independent, self-governing form, is the cause of the world's problems.
Brian Lowry, TV columnist, has criticized this documentary for its lack of incorporating dissenting opinions "in a serious way" and instead, adopted the "preaching to the choir" method.
Lowry writes, "Nevertheless, the whole point of the documentary is to identify how political pushback and a well-funded fossil fuel industry are thwarting efforts to accomplish anything productive in addressing the issue. And while the program does feature clips of the usual suspects saying goofy-sounding things... Not one of them was interviewed specifically for 'The Politics of Power.'"
There is no amount of Southern sass or Bill Engvall "here's your sign" quips that could ever adequately address the increasing stupidity growing in America. A few select groups are willing to shackle a free society based on inconclusive scientific data to liberty encroaching government.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower stated it best in his Farewell Address to the Nation when he said:

Akin to, and largely responsible for the sweeping changes in our industrial-military posture, has been the technological revolution during recent decades.
In this revolution, research has become central; it also becomes more formalized, complex, and costly. A steadily increasing share is conducted for, by, or at the direction of, the Federal government.
Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.
The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded. Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific, technological elite.
It is the task of statesmanship to mold, to balance, and to integrate these and other forces, new and old, within the principles of our democratic system -- ever aiming toward the supreme goals of our free society.
