Absurd Environmental Ideology Guiding Middle East Policy
I was arguing with an acquaintance the other day about what the American foreign policy should be, while we all sit and try to identify what it is right now. President Obama has told the whole world that we don't have a "strategy yet," for dealing with Syria and ISIS, embarrassing us without understanding how.
When Obama was running for office in 2008, remember that he offered a diminished view of America saying, "We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK....That's not leadership. That's not going to happen."
I think of that comment of his often. He is saying that if he was President, he would more than likely consider the attitudes of other countries over the comfort of his own citizens. And though the comment is a global warming fanatic's dream, since our Secretary of State has already said repeatedly that climate change is the greatest challenge we face, the Obama foreign policy holds "climate change" and ISIS on the same level, which is completely absurd.
So too, goes his foreign policy. It is a decidedly different direction for foreign policy, and it is unpredictable because, while he maintains the perch as Commander in Chief, he runs the gamut on comprehensive policy. One day he is a hawk; the next day he is a dove; and the day after that he is completely without a strategy. I’m sure he'll get back to us after a fundraiser and after playing the back nine.
How could global warming, something that has been touted as happening and scientifically proven by a "consensus" of unnamed scientists, something that we cannot see happening, something that we cannot see connected to human deaths around the world, and something that we cannot remedy unless we stop using energy and natural resources for the betterment of humankind – while also paying federal taxes with the belief that government can stop the climate from changing – be the same as ISIS?
When our federal government, having grown to the abusive size that it has, holds that an invisible and unproven "enemy" of mankind (global warming) is worse or even on the same level as a proven threat like Islamo-nazis, then we are in ideological la-la land.
Islamo-nazis are a proven threat to the security of the American citizen for at least four reasons:
1. Their goal to kill all who get in the way of their utopian dream,
2. Their calls for the murder of all infidels and anyone who does not agree with them,
3. Their announcements that they wish to attack us at home,
4. Their affiliation with those who attacked us on 9/11.
That argument is settled. But, the ideological game played by Kerry and Obama pushes you to believe that something that is not happening is happening, purely to get their hands on more of your money, and less of your production--an economic dead-end to be sure.
Yet, they persist in causing us to feel greedy for having all we have, built by the free market genius of a bygone America, shaming the people they lord over with riches unimaginable by the regular American. We, not them, are to stop the engine of America, mostly because their investments in green energy can't make them wealthy without shutting down proven technology.
Of course, Kerry is absurd, our existential threat is as it always has been, not an invisible one that uses flawed data to create a wanted result, but the hardcore murderous intentions of tyrannical men who act like beasts.
Now, Kerry has not yet said what his whack-a-doo global warming fanatics allege, that the unrest in Syria is caused by global warming – but, it's coming. A while back, I pointed to this argument promoted by those who ideologically believe that government can change the climate. They contend that drought forced people into cities, and they got their water shut off by the warring leaders of Syria. They say it is because of our activities in industrialized nations like here in America, there was a drought in the Middle East which touched off the series of events that have caused so much bloodshed.
The rabid environmental justice crowd's views are crazy, but it doesn't stop the administration from plausibly accepting that America is at fault for just about everything. And it underscores what kind of ideology is at the root of this administration, led by a man that already said he'd accept the worldview of other nations over that of our own.
