IBD: Is Obama 'Dangerously Close To Totalitarianism'?

A must read piece with a junk science tie-in.

Investor’s Business Daily editorializes:

…When cap-and-trade failed to make it through Congress — a Congress that had specifically denied the Environmental Protection Agency the authority to regulate so-called greenhouse gases via the Clean Air Act — the Obama administration, with the support of the usual suspects in the media, went ahead, unleashing the EPA to make war on coal and other fossil fuels.

In April 2009, Time Magazine ran a piece titled, “EPA’S CO2 Finding: Putting a Gun to Congress’ Head.” The New York Times editorialized that if Congress fails to ram through cap-and-trade legislation, the EPA should ram it down our throats. And that’s what the administration has been doing…

  1. The IBD is correct.
    So are Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, Michael Reagan, Michelle Malkin, L. Brent Bozell, Pat Buchanan, and just about any blogger or columnist who has never appeared on MSNBC or PBS.
    There are only two things that stand between the citizens’ Liberty and an Authoritarian/Totalitarian government – the independence of the courts to perform judisial review, and the second amendment.

  2. You are right on target, Tad.

    But Obama is simply the latest in a long string of incompetent world leaders who gave away the basic rights of citizens out of self-centered fears and their natural instinct of survival !

    The rest of this sixty-six year (66 yr) mystery is here:


    Two remarkable coincidences (?) exposed these facts:

    1. My research mentor was the first scientist to analyze the ashes that remained of Hiroshima after 6 Aug 1945.

    2. Dr. Peter Gleick’s actions last month reminded me of AGU and NAS responses when Dr. Kuroda tried to report his findings in April 1956. .

    With kind regards,
    Oliver K. Manuel
    Former NASA Principle
    Investigator for Apollo
    Emeritus Professor for
    Nuclear & Space Physics

  3. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. He ranted at SCOTUS as being “unelected” officials, but what about the hundreds of “Czars” that he has appointed to run our lives sans any oversight from Congress or anyone else?

  4. Thanks, Allen, but deceit wins only temporary victories.

    By one very strange coincidence, exactly 66.66667 years ago – early this morning over Hiroshima – the seeds of Climategate were planted in the hearts of world leaders as instinctual fear of “nuclear fires” that vaporized Hiroshima !

    By another strange coincidence Dr. Peter Gleick’s actions two months ago reminded me of the responses of leaders of AGU and NAS when Dr. Kuroda tried to report his findings at the National Meeting of AGU in April 1956.


    By coincidence, truth will always be victorious.

  5. Why is it people like Oliver Manuel disagree by attacking the messenger (Dr Peter Glick) but have nothing constructive to say about the message? Hiroshima seeded the minds of those that were caught in the climategate scandal? Just what is it you are trying to say Mr Manuel?
