Politicians are well-known for wasting our money so they can live very comfortably. While many of us are outraged over such lavish waste, libs tend to forgive the behavior (unless a Republican does it). However, using the taxpayer’s dime to reap such rewards is one thing … taking money from our troops so you can pound shots with your buddies is another thing altogether.
When members of Congress travel overseas at the expense of the Department of Defense, they are treated to thousands of dollars worth of alcohol and other amenities. A review by The Wall Street Journal of congressional disclosure documents for 43 trips found that expenditures averaged $4,300 per trip—and that’s just what has been reported. Lawmakers are required to declare what they spend on travel but not what others like the Pentagon do on Congress’ behalf.
In March 2008, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and nine other lawmakers traveled to England, India and Spain. Their flight included $438.75 worth of alcohol, including three cases of beer, 15 bottles of wine, three bottles of vodka, Crown Royal, Dewar’s and other liquor, plus another $750 worth of chips, cakes and other snacks—all of which were paid for by the U.S. Air Force.
A junket taken by Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) to Africa in December 2008 included $3,360 in “emergency requests” paid for by the military. Some of Inhofe’s party went to a Wal-Mart and bought $130 worth of cookies, mints and other munchies for the trip. They also spent $250 at Total Wine & More.
Joel Johnson, a defense-industry analyst with the Teal Group Corporation and former staffer for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the military-funded trips help provide a “bonding” experience between lawmakers and Pentagon officials which “is helpful for the military when they are seeking particular things in appropriations or authorizations.”
When will my congressional representatives go on a “bonding” trip with me, or any of their other constituents?

The arrogance of these greenies is almost unbearable. Yesterday I told you that the IPCC was forced to admit they’d lied about some of their claims, and lifted them from magazine articles that weren’t based on any science or research … but hypothesis.
Today it’s more of the same. Along with a defiant refusal to step down by the IPCC’s fearless
fraud leader, Dr Rajendra Pachauri. Who as it turns out, has NO climate science credentials at all. He’s the literal equivalent of Joe the Plummer dictating climate policy.
The IPCC’s 2007 report, which won it the Nobel Peace Prize, said that the probability of Himalayan glaciers “disappearing by the year 2035 and perhaps sooner is very high”.
But it emerged last week that the forecast was based not on a consensus among climate change experts, but on a media interview with a single Indian glaciologist in 1999.
The IPCC admitted on Thursday that the prediction was “poorly substantiated” in the latest of a series of blows to the panel’s credibility.
Gee, another Nobel Prize awarded based on fraud … shocking.
Syed Hasnain, the Indian glaciologist erroneously quoted as making the 2035 prediction, said that responsibility had to lie with them. “It is the lead authors — blame goes to them,” he told The Times. “There are many mistakes in it. It is a very poorly made report.”
He and other leading glaciologists pointed out at least five glaring errors
in the relevant section.
It says the total area of Himalyan glaciers “will likely shrink from the present 500,000 to 100,000 square kilometers by the year 2035”. There are only 33,000 square kilometers of glaciers in the Himalayas.
There’s more errors highlighted in the article, including the IPCC using the World Wildlife Fund (the people who scare your children with dead animals) as a source of information. The IPCC is not supposed to use advocacy groups for data. That last part should be a no brainer, but I guess the lines get blurred when you’ve ceased to be a scientific entity and instead become an advocacy group yourself.

His lack of understanding of military continues to be staggering. Almost as bad as Kucinich even. I need not comment more.

The greenies continue to have their asses handed to them by logic, facts, science, and their own corruption. The International Panel on Climate Change was forced to admit one of their claims about the Himalayan glaciers was actually lifted from a magazine article in 1999. Furthermore, there is no research on the claim at all.
The International Panel on Climate Change was forced to admit its key claim that Himalayan glaciers would melt by 2035 was lifted from a 1999 magazine article. The report was based on an interview with a little-known Indian scientist who has since said his views were “speculation” and not backed up by research.
It was also revealed that the IPCC’s controversial chairman, Dr Rajendra Pachauri, described as “the world’s top climate scientist”, is a former railway engineer with a PhD in economics and no formal climate science qualifications.
Oh Sh*t! You mean the greenies elevated a man-made global warming scientist who has NO TRAINING in this field? I’m just SHOCKED (sarcasm)!
Man, the only that could make this better is if we discover, yet another, financial conflict of interest.
Dr Pachauri was yesterday accused of a conflict of interest after it emerged he has a network of business interests that attract millions of pounds in funding thanks to IPCC policies. One of them, The Energy Research Institute, has a London office and is set to receive up to £10million from British taxpayers over the next five years in the form of grants from the Department for International Development.
This will be added to “The Comprehensive Link List Disproving Man-Made Global Warming” sometime today.

I have been saying for a very long time that the bird flu, and more recently, swine flu pandemics were falsified in order to get new laws, money, and power in place. As a result, thousands of innocent victims were given experimental vaccines that ended up having harmful side effects.
There have only been a few, who aren’t registered members of conspiracy kooks quarterly, that have shared my thoughts on this matter.
Much like all the evidence proves man-made global warming is a fraud, all the evidence clearly points to an orchestrated effort to instill panic on the swine flu. The CDC even inadvertently admitted that they were fudging numbers, and fear-mongering on swine flu.
Now, finally, an major international organization is going to investigate this fraud upon the world’s citizens. The Council of Europe will investigate the “faked pandemic” to get to the bottom of this farce. To learn more about the Council of Europe … go here. They are basically a local European United Nations, and they are legit.
In order to promote their patented drugs and vaccines against flu, pharmaceutical companies influenced scientists and official agencies, responsible for public health standards to alarm governments worldwide and make them squander tight health resources for inefficient vaccine strategies and needlessly expose millions of healthy people to the risk of an unknown amount of side-effects of insufficiently tested vaccines.
The “birds-flu”-campaign (2005/06) combined with the “swine-flu”-campaign seem to have caused a great deal of damage not only to some vaccinated patients and to public health-budgets, but to the credibility and accountability of important international health-agencies.
The Council of Europe and its member-states should ask for immediate investigations and consequences on their national levels as well as on the international level.
The definition of an alarming pandemic must not be under the influence of drug-sellers.
Was the drug industry partly responsible for this farce? Yes, but there is a great point being missed here. So were the governments who took part. They weren’t scammed or tricked. They help orchestrate this whole pandemic in order to pass new laws that bi-passed current law in order to maintain ‘public safety.’
Here’s a couple examples if you don’t believe me:
I’d like to take this moment to reflect on the health care debate. If the drug companies are the enemy, and we need the federal government to keep them in check, then why is a prominent international council of nations investigating the influence of those same drug companies upon those same governments? It seems the government is more, not less, susceptible to the influence of big pharma than the private sector.
When in April 2009 some hundred normal influenza cases in Mexico City were rashly announced to be the beginning of a threatening new pandemic, there was little scientific evidence for this judgement. Nevertheless a large and immediate word-wide agenda setting process started and was eagerly spread by alarmist media and formally legitimized by pandemic-defining WHO, the agency, which is our global epidemiological watchdog and task-force.
Nevertheless we have to observe, that a faked “swine-flu”- pandemic is still used for marketing risky vaccines.
The victims among millions of needlessly vaccinated people must be protected by their states and independent scientific clarification should provide evidence and transparency for national and -if necessary- European courts.
After we discovered that seasonal flu was far more deadly than swine flu in the US, this screams of a blatant fraud upon the people. Go get ‘em on this.

Meehan standing over McCormack
Weekly Standard reporter John McCormack has made a lot of news lately. He’s alleged that he was ‘roughed up’ by a henchman from Democrat Martha Coakley’s camp. Coakley is currently the Attorney General in Massachusetts, and is running for the vacant US Senate seat.
That supposed henchman is Michael Meehan, a campaign volunteer. He has flatly denied pushing McCormack.
That is very interesting given that he’s issued an apology, and is claiming that he’s attempted to reach McCormack several times to ‘apologize for his part’ in the fall.
Why would you say you had any part in someone falling if you have already denied pushing the man?
Where the story gets really interesting is the AP’s story clearly states that McCormack tripped, and was not pushed.
So who’s telling the truth?
I don’t really know, and there may some truth to both statements. However, so far McCormack’s story seems more solid given that Meehan is admittedly making great effort to apologize for something he says he didn’t do.

The US Senate has advanced the health care bill as expected. All it took was corruption and bribery to get the votes. And to think, a few of you out there actually thought your rights weren’t for sale.
The Democratic Party’s decades-long push to remake the U.S. health care system cleared a major hurdle early Monday morning, with the Senate voting to advance a massive $871 billion bill to extend coverage to nearly all Americans and tighten regulations on private insurers.
Less than two days after releasing a bill with 383 pages of changes, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) corralled his politically diverse caucus and delivered the 60 votes necessary for the most crucial test vote in the legislative process so far — effectively assuring the reform package will clear the Senate later this week.
The final tally was a straight party-line vote, 60-40. All Democrats and two independents voted yes and all Republicans voted no – and each side bitterly accused the other of trying to thwart true reform through petty gamesmanship.
DC is still looking for one Democrat who’s actually read the bill.

What’s up Obama’s sleeve here? Why would he stop the briefing?
The Senate Armed Services Committee postponed its Monday briefing on the deadly Fort Hood massacre at the behest of the White House, despite calls from some lawmakers to press forward with a congressional investigation into the shooting rampage that killed 13 and wounded 29.
There’s no need to delay it for evidence gathering purposes. I’ll be following this for you.
