...The book is exactly what it says: The story of the most famous science graph of the 21st century and how it led, via Al Gore's movie and the United Nations, to a world of cartoon climatology where Obama, the Prince of Wales and other world leaders now routinely talk like the kind of gibbering apocalyptic loons who used to walk the streets with sandwich boards predicting the end of the world.  READ MORE HERE.

What ISIS Really Wants By Graeme Wood

The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to stop it


Stopping Obama’s Assault On the Suburbs  by STANLEY KURTZ June 9, 2014 12:33 PM

(Note this piece was written one year ago.  The Breaking News today?  The Gosar Amendment passed.  Read about it here).

For two years I’ve been writing about President Obama’s steadily unfolding plans to transform the way Americans live.  Now there’s something you can do stop him. Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar is planning to offer an amendment to the THUD Bill (Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Bill), currently being considered by the House of Representatives.  Gosar’s amendment would bar the use of funding to implement, administer, or enforce the Obama administration’s proposed rule on Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH). As even outgoing Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan acknowledges, AFFH isn’t about blocking actual cases of housing discrimination.  Instead, this rule uses the language of fighting discrimination to re-engineer Americans’ housing choices.  AFFH forces every municipality receiving federal aid to conduct a survey of its neighborhoods by race, ethnicity and income.  If the mixture is not to the federal government’s liking, changes would have to be made on pain of losing federal funding.  This would effectively strip local governments of their zoning powers. Furthermore, by redefining “fair housing” to mean housing near transportation hubs and dense downtown districts where many jobs are available, AFFH can be used to change the way Americans live, urbanizing suburbs and Manhattanizing cities.  The rule can also be used to press suburbs into regional housing consortia designed to strip local governments of their independence. I wrote about the history, philosophy, and strategy of the Obama administration’s anti-suburban policies in Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities.  You can read more about AFFH here. Congressman Gosar’s amendment has a chance of passing the House.  The Democrat controlled Senate poses a greater challenge.  Win or lose, however, the Gosar amendment puts AFFH into the public eye.

The Women’s Republican Club of Lake Forest-Lake Bluff was founded in 1941 and is the longest continually operating political organization of its kind in the area. The WRC exists to assist local, state and national Republican candidates win elective office; to assist elected Republican officeholders with constituent interface and to educate all voters on issues important to the maintenance of our Constitutional republic and the social and economic vitality of Illinois and our local communities.

Consistent with the written Illinois and National GOP platforms, the WRC supports reverence for the United States Constitution and the rule of law, and the traditional, American values protecting human life, personal liberty and responsibility, and the pursuit of happiness in any lawful sphere of endeavor.

The WRC does not support the increasingly intrusive and dehumanizing interference of either state or federal governments that deny life, liberty or the pursuit of happiness including but not limited to: job-killing oppressive taxation and regulation, wasteful government spending, the cynical creation and maintenance of a permanent, government-dependent underclass, corporate cronyism, the governmental monopoly on education, denial of school choice, the redefinition of marriage and the trampling of religious liberty.

We understand that good Republicans—both voters and candidates and to sometimes widely varying degrees—do not necessarily agree with everything in the platform.  We agree with Ronald Reagan, who famously said that the person who agrees with you 80% of the time is a friend, not a 20% traitor.  If you agree with 80% of the GOP platform, you’re a friend.  What’s more, you’re a Republican!  So join us!
