We must start to contact our Senators and tell them that Cap and Trade cannot be passed! Harry Reid and the Democrats will attempt to utilize the oil spill to try and pass Cap and Trade. Our economy cannot, and will not survive passage of this bill. The Democrats will attempt to use the unfortunate events in the gulf to ram this through. It’s a scam to get Cap and Trade passed. The current iteration of Cap and Trade is known as the American Power Act. Sounds benign, doesn’t it?

Here is an article that discusses Reid’s statements last week about pushing “comprehensive” energy policy through by July:

The CBO has released documents stating that policies to reduce greenhouse gasses would result in job losses causing the unemployment rate to go higher than it currently is.

I don’t know what more to tell people. We are looking at a combination of things that could create a chaotic economic situation worse than anything this country has ever seen. I want you to put everything that has been happening together and think about how this all affects America. First, the health care bill has taxes that will begin to go in effect next year that will put severe strain on an already broken economy. Second, the national debt is about to approach 100% of GDP. This means we owe as much money as what the economy produces in one year. Third, the unemployment rate is not improving and there is nothing that is being done that will improve it. Consider the unemployment data that came out on Friday, most analysts were expecting higher numbers than what actually came out, upwards of 500,000. The numbers that came out were scary. 431,000 jobs were “created” in May, of those jobs 411,000 jobs were temporary US Census workers. In other words there were 14% less jobs created than anticipated, of those jobs 95% were temporary government jobs. Only 5% of these jobs were created in the private sector. The market closed below 10,000 and lost 325 points on a jobs report that technically showed unemployment going down .2% Folks, the government gets it’s money from the private sector and there is no end in sight to the spending in WADC. Now they really want to pass yet another bill that will raise taxes on every aspect of the entire economy? If passed, Cap and Trade would have effects on every industry and business in America. Some on the left have even broached the concept of a Value Added Tax. This would be yet another tax on every aspect of the economy.

Remember this stupid bill has already been passed by the US House of Representatives and only has to pass the Senate. We must do what we did with the health care bill, shut down the switchboard. Please let the Democrats know that they are gone in November and that they will be the ones responsible for the destruction of the US economy. Tell the Republicans that you know that the media and the left will try and pressure them into “doing something about the oil spill.” Amending Cap and Trade to a bill directed at addressing the problems in the gulf is dishonest and not necessary to address the problems in the Gulf. You won’t hold a no vote against them in November. Cap and Trade will not address the problems in the Gulf.

Remember the American Power Act will require 60 votes to pass. That means one Republican has to break ranks and vote for this bill, This cannot happen!!!

Have you noticed how the name has been changed on the Cap and Trade bill yet again? Remember it was originally called the Climate Bill, and then you figured that out. Then it became Cap and Trade and everyone seemed to figure out what that was. Plus, people had a lot of great nicknames for it: Cap and Tax, Crap and Tax, Knee-Cap and Tax.  Then true to form, the Progressives have brought it out as the American Power Act. Oh, that sounds so great. It surely will be something good for America! Yeah… right.

John Kerry told us the other day that the churches are really supporting this climate change bill. Yeah, there is a group for it, too. The National Council of Churches of Christ Eco-Justice Programs. You can donate to them to if you really want. Now if you click on the Donate button of their website and scroll down to the bottom of the page you find out where their money goes to. It goes to the group DEMOCRACYINACTION.org Now when you go to their website you find this, their slogan, “wiring the Progressive movement.” Here is what they say about themselves “DemocracyInAction, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization itself, believes technology can be a decisive force for social change. We exist to empower those who share our values of ecological and social justice to advance the progressive agenda.” Folks, they are trying to hijack your religion and your churches for political gain.

Do you remember a little while back when I told you about the Chicago Climate Exchange? Well, there is more to this story. A guy by the name of Maurice Strong is on the Board of Directors of the Chicago Climate Exchange. According to Maurice Strong this was an idea for a novel, except Maurice Strong has never written a novel.

“What if a small group of these world leaders were to conclude that the principal risk to the earth comes from the actions of the rich countries. In order to save the planet, the group decides: isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring this about.”  Calgary Sun December 2, 2002

Now his resume gets really interesting. He is currently an adviser to China. He was the “godfather” of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol and is currently a key player in the United Nations. At one point in time he served on the “Commission of Global Governance.” He pushed for $6 billion dollars in reparations to be sent from the industrialized world to poorer countries because of environmental degradation. When Al Gore was in the Senate they worked together on climate issues. Al Gore would later steer $33 million dollars of tax payer money to Strong’s company the Molten Metal Technology Company. The only source of income for this company was this $33 million dollars. The company eventually folded, but not before strong walked away with $16 million dollars.

When does the corruption end and when do more Americans, WAKE UP!

For those that have been reading my recent posts on corruption with Obama, Goldman Sachs and friends this is the next piece in the saga. You can get caught up here and here. I am now going to start referring to this as Crime, Inc. as Glenn Beck is currently doing, because that’s about what this all boils down to.

We last left off introducing a new character, Joel Rogers. Joel is an interesting man and yet another self-avowed socialist who seems to support our current President. Coincidence, I’m sure.

Joel recently admitted that Cap and Trade would do nothing to help the environment and that it’s sole purpose is to redistribute wealth.

From a video: “You will be well on your way to actually green the American economy. And you will grow the wealth and GE and CISCO and the other people who are announcing great plans should be relatively happy with that and any environmentalist who’s not concerned about the distribution of that wealth should be relatively happy. I hope you all realize that you could eliminate every power plant in America today and you can stop every car in America. Take out the entire power generation sector. Take out all of the transportation sector. And you still wouldn’t be anywhere near 80% below 1990 levels. You’d be closer to 60%, you’d be around 68% and that’s bringing the economy to a complete halt. Basically.”

From another video: “The profit seeking business essentially owns our political system, it owns the political parties, it funds their conventions, it provides the lions share of the one billion dollars in private cash that will decide this year who even gets to play the electoral game, much less decides who wins it. It owns the major media and a lot of the minor ones too. We must become you in the sense of organized, independent, in the the economy and on the street if business power is to be checked. So let’s check it with some muscle, but also, always beneath the muscle, hear the beating of the heart.”

Hmmm…. Well, last I checked, in the free-market system, we are the muscle. You control where you spend your money and the companies in turn either benefit, or shrivel up and die. Anyone curious why GE and Cisco are going to be the ones to benefit from Cap and Trade? Oh, wait, I know, they are both politically connected. GE political donations to Democrats in the 2008 political cycle $2.5 million dollars, to Republicans $1.43 million. Donations to Barack Obama alone, $499,130. Lobbying spending, brace yourself, $39 million dollars. Cisco political donations: $974,084 to Democrats and $547,056 to Republicans. Cisco spent $2.8 million in lobbying. Now let’s not forget who owns MSNBC. It’s GE. Ever wonder why MSNBC likes Barry so much? Let’s not forget how much Goldman Sachs has invested in the whole Cap and Trade scheme.

The Cap and Trade bill was just proposed yesterday by John Kerry and Joe Lieberman. Keep your eyes on it.
