"FEDS GO FROM REGS TO RICHES": the EPA and other COLD stories
By Curtis Dahlgren
November 17, 2014


PEGGY NOONAN MUST BE VERY OLD; her words keep sounding wiser to me ('course I'm no spring chicken either). Here's a tidbit from her latest column (WSJ 11/15-16):

"A few weeks ago a conservative intellectual asked me, 'How are we going to get through the next two years?' It was a rhetorical question . . . [but] for those who are young and not sure if what they are seeing is wholly unusual: Yes, it is wholly unusual . . "

I second her notion, and am therefore reposting portions of my 12/14/10 column, "Dreams or nightmares? Cancun, record cold, and other scary headlines." This will give newer readers an inkling how long we've been fighting the good fight to restore Truth (the 2007 UN IPPC report contained five blatantly false statements of "fact" but it won a Nobel Prize):

THE ROMAN EMPIRE – world government – could be revived either through unabated Political Correctness – or a by backlash against it! Here are some of the "scariest" headlines and happenings of the past couple weeks [2010]:

- Congress reconvenes, coldly.

- Republicans and the President "talk."

- U.N. convenes "climate conference" in cold Cancun, Mexico.

- Record early December cold and blizzards; Metrodome collapses in Minneapolis.

- Woman bites man (Wisconsin wife bites off husband's tongue).

But the "scariest" headline of all was this one: "Printing problem halts production of $100 bills." OH NO!! What's going to become of us?

By the way, they reattached that man's tongue, but I worry that if he had a potty mouth, his body might reject it. BTW, the same people who use the F-word 100 times in one movie are "deeply offended" by politically incorrect speech. But enough jocularity. The Signs of the Times (and the Zeitgeist) are too serious to conclude this column with satire.

Here in the Banana Belt of the Upper Peninsula, it's just another typical autumn, but did you hear about the weather in Britain and on the Continent? No wonder the U.N. "conference" wasn't held in Copenhagen this time!

I think the UN IPCC is inadvertently proving that there is a God who still controls the weather and the sea levels. After "bitter cold" in Denmark and a record blizzard in the Eastern U.S. during the last conference, record lows have been set in Mexico and southern Florida. Of course, even if the seas suddenly started dropping, the enviro-mentals would say "SEE, SEE – it's global warming, er – climate change." Shoot, they not only want to "talk" about the weather, they actually claim to have the power DO something about it!

In case you haven't heard what that conference is REALLY about, it's about an eventual global tax purporting to "save the planet" but in actuality is just an excuse for a global apparatus to distribute "reparations" to the Third World.

The fact that our President is gung-ho for Cap-and-trade and other green global schemes could make him a de facto Emporer-of-the-world. That's laughable, but also ironic for a kid who grew up hating British colonialism and alleged American "imperialism."

Today's forecast for the upper Midwest calls for 20 below zero wind-chill factors. Even if that happened during every international "climate conference," the delegates would pick themselves up as if nothing had happened and plod on ahead on snowshoes. Because the "weather" isn't really the issue anyway!

[I think if there were to be "international taxation," the proceeds ought to go to people in the Northern lattitudes who can't afford to heat their homes. People in England have been hanging out in libraries or riding trains all day to stay warm! They're praying for global warming]

In all seriousness, though, if you don't have a back-up stove or fireplace, what are you thinking? You people need to get "educated" on the phony topic of "climate change" and its related SCAM-AND-TAX conspiracies. For example, go to or – and take the time to open your eyes before you read. "Reading" isn't just a form of mental exercise to keep your mind occupied, but the purpose of reading is to learn a few things.

By the way, I'm heating my home this year with junk mail from Health and Human Services bragging about the "new HealthCare law." I wonder how many trees Kathleen Sebilius has killed sending out propaganda?

Lord Monkton monitored the Cancun conference and compiled a summary of the humongous "report" issued by the U.N. Here's just one excerpt (posted at WattsUpWithThat):

Propaganda: The Chairman's note contains several mentions of the notion that the peoples of the world need to be told more about climate change. Here, too, there is a parallel with the EU, which administers a propaganda fund of some $250 million a year purely to advertise its own wonderfulness to an increasingly sceptical population. The IPCC already spends millions every year with PR agencies, asking them to find new ways of making its blood-curdling message more widely understood and feared among ordinary people. The Secretariat already has the advantage of an uncritical, acquiescent, scientifically illiterate, economically innumerate and just plain dumb news media: now it will have a propaganda fund to play with as well. [end of excerpts from the 2010 column]

P.S. We have more than a month of autumn left yet, but in the U.P. it was about six degrees above zero at my house this morning ("lower inland," etc.)! Uncle Sam has a P.R. problem. First the P.R. people called it "Anthropogenic Global Warming," then "Climate Change"; now they seem to have decided upon "Anthropogenic Climate DISRUPTION." I'm really impressed, aren't you? MORE TO COME.

PPS: Item from – "Newly elected Attorney General Brad Schimel made it clear on the campaign trail that he is prepared to sue the federal government and stand up for Wisconsin if the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) were to overstep their authority with new mandates and rules.

"There's a real question as to whether the EPA is now making the Clean Air Act into something that was not intended," said Schimel in the Wisconsin State Journal. "And if we're going to make a change that big, Congress should make that change, not a regulatory agency . . . "
