Patriotic Americans know when to die

The Anchoress presents a poster the satirizes both the Orwellian nature of the Obama administration’s health-care “reform” plan and the Socialist Realist art it seems so fond of.


Bush lied, ice died

Well, according to the Truther community George Bush was secretly behind the 9/11 attacks and really invaded Iraq to steal its oil, so why not this, too?

Revealed: the secret evidence of global warming Bush tried to hide

Graphic images that reveal the devastating impact of global warming in the Arctic have been released by the US military. The photographs, taken by spy satellites over the past decade, confirm that in recent years vast areas in high latitudes have lost their ice cover in summer months.

The pictures, kept secret by Washington during the presidency of George W Bush, were declassified by the White House last week. President Barack Obama is currently trying to galvanise Congress and the American public to take action to halt catastrophic climate change caused by rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Don’t forget, this is coming from a supposedly respectable newspaper. One that apparently couldn’t be bothered to research the historic variation in arctic ice cover that’s been observed over the last couple of centuries, or that the ice cover, even if shrinking in the north, is increasing in Antarctica. Of course, as William Jacobson points out, the whole idea that the Bush Administration was hiding some dire secret is ludicrous, as a simple Google search reveals.

How convenient, too, that this article comes out just as the Obama administration is pushing controversial cap-and-trade legislation to regulate the output of greenhouse gases and prevent global warming – a problem their models can’t even show exists. The Waxman-Markey bill barely passed the House and has run into serious difficulties in the Senate because it’s dawning on the public that this bill will do serious damage to the American economy.

So, what else can Team Obama do but trot out the old “blame Bush” excuse? Talk to the hand

Thankfully, fewer and fewer people are buying it, whether from Obama or his shills in the media.
