Pelosi Attends Global Warming Conference in Late May as Snow Falls

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

It is like some sitcom stunt. Nancy Pelosi plans a meeting with scientists to talk about global warming while the snow falls outside. It is almost summer!!! It really doesn’t get any funnier than this. What is even more funny is that she and her cronies took jets to attend the conference. It seems that Pelosi doesn’t really care that much about the environment.

What these people need to understand is that God made this earth right down to the last proton and neutron and there is nothing WE can do to completely destroy it. Yes, we should be good stewards of the world He has given us, but it is foolish to believe that we can destroy the world as we know it.

Yes, folks, it’s Memorial Day weekend, snow is still falling in parts of America, England, and Canada, and our House Speaker is traveling abroad to discuss the global warming crisis.

You really can’t make this stuff up!

What’s potentially more comical is that Nancy Pelosi probably doesn’t get the joke, and the press will likely hide the delicious irony so as not to allow the citizenry to get distracted from all the climate change hysteria.

Thankfully, the folks at NewsBusters are more than happy to share a little vaudeville with their readers to brighten up the holiday.

Without further ado, the set up as reported by the Associated Press:

Pelosi, D-Calif., and seven other House members left Saturday for meetings with scientists and politicians in Greenland, Germany and Belgium on ways to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.

Meanwhile, in North Dakota, as reported by KFYR-TV:

It`s May 26th, Memorial Day weekend. Normally, there`d be kids playing on this playground right about now, but instead it`s windy, cold, and there`s snow on the ground.

A bit to the north, as reported by the Calgary Sun:

Homes were left without power, downed trees damaged dozens of cars and school was cancelled for thousands of kids as a blast of record snow slammed many parts of southern Alberta yesterday…The wintry blast topped the previous snowfall mark of 5.1 cm for May 24, set in 1911, with communities on the city’s northwestern edge among the hardest hit.

Immigration Bill Benefits Aliens Not America

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

No one is saying that we should mistreat illegals, if fact, quite the opposite. What needs to be done is to treat all illegals equally. The only fair way to take care of this problem is to make everyone come here in the same manner. All illegals should be sent back to their home country until they are able to obtain the proper paperwork to come come here. It is absurd to allow illegals to disobey our laws and then condone it. Only in America where we have so many bleeding-heart liberals (who also want the minority vote, by the way) would people be allowed to show total disregard for our laws and be rewarded for it.

U.S. Senator Tom Coburn (R-Oklahoma) says the so-called “comprehensive immigration reform” bill in the Senate should be based on the needs of the United States, not on the needs of people who want to come into the country. He says he will not vote for the Senate immigration bill because it “undermines the rule of law.”

Senator Coburn says illegal aliens should be treated with compassion, but not given a “pathway to citizenship” unless they do the same things others have done who have entered the country legally. “We ought to have an immigration policy that’s about us, not about people who want to come here,” he insists.

“Canada’s been very successful on having an immigration policy based on a point system, based on what you can do for Canada, not what Canada can do for you,” the Oklahoma Republican points out. “There are 50 million people who have applications right now that come into this country, and many of them are highly qualified people,” he says. ” Many of them have skills — we ought to recognize what benefits us.”

Curbing the problem of illegal immigration should be handled with a staged approach involving border security and workplace verification first before any guest worker program is put into effect, Coburn suggests. The 1986 amnesty for illegal aliens failed because “we don’t have border security and employment verification,” he asserts.

Terror Cell in Jerusalem Ready For Attacks

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

JERUSALEM – The Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the declared military wing of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah organization, has formed a terrorist cell living in the vicinity of Jerusalem consisting of Israeli residents ready to carry out attacks within the Jewish state, according to a top Brigades leader speaking to WND.

“We have Israeli Arab brothers who are members of the Brigades who live in Israel and will make in the coming days and weeks shootings and suicide bombings,” said the Brigades leader, who spoke on the condition his name be withheld.

“Even in the case that there will be a cease-fire in Gaza, will keep attacking Israel. They will see the importance of our cells in Jerusalem with more attacks in the near future,” the Brigades leader said.

The claim follows a shooting attack this weekend in an eastern Jerusalem neighborhood targeting Israeli policemen and carried out by two Arab men who were permanent Israeli residents living in the Jabel Mukaber neighborhood on Jerusalem’s periphery. On Saturday, the two opened fire at close range on an Israeli border policeman and a security guard. The policeman was hit in the chest and seriously wounded; the guard was moderately wounded. The Arab perpetrators were shot and killed by Israeli forces.

The Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group claimed responsibility for the shooting.

Is China Trying to Poison US?

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

Good thing these foods are inspected by the FDA or it’s likely that we would all be sick (or worse). Sounds to me like the U.S. needs to ban all foods from China.

WASHINGTON – While Americans are still recovering from a scandal over poison pet foods imported from China, FDA inspectors report tainted food imports intended for American humans are being rejected with increasing frequency because they are filthy, are contaminated with pesticides and tainted with carcinogens, bacteria and banned drugs.

Last month, like most months, China topped the list of countries whose products were refused by the FDA – and that list includes many countries, including Mexico and Canada, who export far more food products to the U.S. than China.

Some 257 refusals of Chinese products were recorded in April. By comparison, only 140 were from Mexico and only 23 from Canada.

Refused by the FDA in April because they were “filthy”:

salted bean curd cubes in brine with chili and sesame oil
dried apple
dried peach
dried pear
dried round bean curd
dried mushroom
frozen bay scallops
frozen Pacific cod
frozen seafood mix
fermented bean curd

Among the foods rejected because they were contaminated with pesticides:

frozen eel
frozen red raspberry crumble
Frozen catfish was stopped because it was laced with banned antibiotics. Scallops and sardines were turned away because they were coated with putrefying bacteria.

Sheehan Says ‘Peace Out’

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

Thank goodness! Cindy Sheehan has decided to cut and run from her endless anti-war movement. She has spent several years annoying everyone with war protests that (as far as I can see) have been quite futile. It is time that she move on with her life and put this all behind her.

In a 1,245-word missive entitled “Goodbye Attention Whore” posted on the liberal DailyKos blog, Sheehan said her campaign to end the war in Iraq had strained her relationship with her children, cost her a marriage and left her nearly penniless.

“This is my resignation letter as the ‘face’ of the American anti-war movement,” Sheehan wrote. “I am going to take whatever I have left and go home. I am going to go home and be a mother to my surviving children and try to regain some of what I have lost.”

Sheehan founded the Gold Star Families for Peace after her son, Casey Sheehan, a 24-year-old Army specialist, was killed in an April 2004 battle in Baghdad. Sheehan was an outspoken critic of the Bush administration’s policies and was often a target of criticism herself for visiting with leftist leaders like Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez.

Flags Replaced with Swastikas in Washington State

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

In one of the worse demonstrations of leftest hate or our country, United States flags decorating veterns graves in Washington were removed, burned and replaced with swastikas.
I’m not sure what these people were trying to prove, other than their hate for the United States. If they hate it here so much, then they need to leave.

ORCAS ISLAND, Wash. – Vandals burned dozens of small American flags that decorated veterans’ graves for Memorial Day and replaced many of them with hand-drawn swastikas, authorities said Monday.

Forty-six flag standards were found empty and another 33 flags were in charred tatters Sunday in the cemetery, authorities said. Swastikas drawn on paper appeared where 14 of the flags had been.

Members of the American Legion on this island off Washington’s northwest coast replaced the burned flags with new ones Sunday afternoon.

The vandals struck again on Memorial Day after a guard left at dawn, the San Juan County sheriff’s office said. This time, the vandals left 33 of the hand-drawn swastikas.

“This is not an act of free speech. This is a crime,” Sheriff Bill Cumming said in a statement released Monday afternoon.

Investigators believe there’s more than one culprit, based on the number of flags that were vandalized, Cumming said in a telephone interview. But authorities have no suspects, he said.

The sheriff said deputies were trying to lift fingerprints off what little physical evidence they were able to recover.
