California’s Drought Could Tip America Toward Economic And Social Turmoil

California’s Drought Could Tip America Toward Economic And Social Turmoil


“We never know the worth of water, till the well is dry.” — saying No. 5451, as collected and listed in Gnomologia by Thomas Fuller, M.D.

Some of the worst drought conditions in recorded history have stricken California, and this will have a blistering effect on America’s economy.

California is into its third year of severe drought, a situation that promoted U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to announce $9.7 million in new agriculture aid. This will top the Barack Obama Administration’s aid to the Golden State at more than $50 million dollars, a total that will undoubtedly grow because of Washington’s worries of a perfect storm — a tsunami of illegal immigrants and a dearth of water.

Last Saturday, the Los Angeles Times carried a story headlined, “California drought will only get worse, experts say.” The story reported that 80 percent of the State is suffering extreme drought, and Brian Fuchs of the National Drought Mitigation Center believes that conditions are not likely to improve. When asked if it is possible that the State is suffering its worst water shortage in 50 years, Fuchs suggested it could be the worst drought in 200 to 300 years and then understated the situation by saying, “It would be a significant event.”

Fuchs echoed what B. Lynn Ingram, a professor of earth and planetary sciences at the University of California, Berkeley told The New York Times in February, “We are on track for having the worst drought in 500 years.”

An understanding of the implications of a major weather change dating back half a millennium on a crucial region of the world is difficult to understate.

The Most Precious Commodity

Economic implications in themselves from such drought have to be seriously weighed. California Ag-growers are a critical part of the State’s economy, which is the largest in the Union. Besides being the No. 1 agriculture-producing State in the U.S., California has the world’s eighth-largest economy, with a gross State product of more than $2 trillion, or more than 13 percent of the total U.S. gross domestic product. A key component to California’s economy is agriculture.

As a cattle and grain writer for my first few years out of college, I can tell you water is the key component in being able to raise livestock or grow crops. And I know the stories that my father and uncle told about the Dust Bowl and how it endured in their memory because of the personal hardship they saw.

Given that California is the fifth-largest supplier of food and agriculture commodities in the world with annual sales of more than $44 billion, a catastrophic drought will have serious implications that will be felt throughout North America and beyond.

Fortune reported last week that the drought will cost the State $2.2 billion alone this year. And if dry conditions persist as expected, that total will escalate quickly, leaving the U.S. particularly vulnerable to inflation. Already, the dollar has been severely undermined by the Federal Reserve’s campaign of buying U.S. Treasuries, creating escalation in the money supply over the past few years.

Who Are The Real Racists, Eric Holder?

Who Are The Real Racists, Eric Holder?


Prejudice is part of human nature. It dates back eons and once served a purpose which advanced human survival. While it is still prevalent today, it is a fallacy that it is inherent mostly in whites as alluded to last Sunday by Attorney General Eric Holder when interviewed on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.” According to Holder, he and President Barack Obama have been unfairly treated because of their skin color.

“There’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that’s directed at me [and] directed at the president,” stated Holder. “You know, people talking about taking their country back… There’s a certain racial component to this for some people. I don’t think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some there’s a racial animus.”

Holder is correct — racism exists in America. It also exists in every other corner of the globe. But it is hardly the reason for the President’s record low approval ratings or the discourse in Washington. Instead it is a convenient excuse for an abysmal administration which is itself racist in nature.

Racism: One Of The Original Sins

We see evidence of racial and religious hatred every week, most recently with hostilities erupting in Israel. It is tribal and it can be calmed or it can be exacerbated. President Barack Obama has chosen to make prejudice and racism worse in America.

In his actions, Obama is hardly as Oprah Winfrey claimed him to be, “the [chosen] one.” He has not unified the United States but split it further apart than at any period since the Vietnam War. Polls show that racism is worse today than when Obama took office in 2008.

Obama has maintained that many of America’s problems stem from racism — white racism — that can be shamed and legislated away. And yet it is the President’s own racism against whites is also egregious.

Evidence of this is when Obama reiterated Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s words:

It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white folks’ greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere…That’s the world! On which hope sits!

That doesn’t sound presidential does it?

That the President is a racist is hardly a surprise. Racism exists in nature — a part of the natural order that Obama is more than willing to express but won’t allow in others whom he holds to a higher standard.

Prejudice And A Dog Name Boo

Last winter, my wife and I were babysitting our daughter’s French bulldog, Boo. She is just past the puppy stage and is intelligent as far as dogs go.

My wife Angela had to pick up some things at the corner store, so Boo and I warmed ourselves in the lobby where we live. The building is managed by Romanians. The manager and the maintenance man nearby were speaking in Romanian and the dog became agitated. She was pulling at her leash and attention was on the two of them as she sat on her haunches with hair bristling.

America’s Martyrdom

by John Myers on Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

This is article 129 of 140 in the topic History
America’s Martyrdom

Palestinians burn an American flag.

This month marked the three-year anniversary of Osama bin Laden’s death. In ranking modern-day villains, bin Laden usually ranks just behind Adolf Hitler and just above Saddam Hussein. These, of course, are rankings to which only the Western world adheres. People with a different point of view might put any of the above-mentioned men as the world’s greatest hero. This is seemingly unheard of from our Western perspective. These are mass-murdering psychopaths who killed countless innocents for an extreme cause; anyone who thinks otherwise is sipping the Kool-Aid. After all, we are from the best country in the world. We are the greatest nation in the world. We have been since we destroyed the Nazis and proved our might conquering the Russians and executing the world’s worst terrorist.

I spend 90 percent of my time writing about this country. And since my children are grown up and have their own families, I have traveled less over the years. I admittedly do not have a wide sense of perspective on how the rest of the world views us. My son, in the process of getting his master’s degree in history, did some consultant work in the Mideast and Asia. He worked with high school-aged kids from more than 30 different countries from around the world, and he asked them questions about what they liked about history and who some of their heroes were.

One of the more popular topics was World War II. Like Americans, the rest of the world knows this to be the most popular war, filled with a vast array of characters that George R.R. Martin couldn’t even create. The most popular name that kept coming up was that No. 1 villain, Hitler. Surprisingly, instead of analyzing his evils and wrongdoings, the students praised his forward thinking and business savvy. My son was stunned. He spoke to the head teacher about how this could be taught in the school, and he wanted to be informed why the school would practice such a thing. The head of history explained that it wasn’t the school; it was the culture. This wasn’t the Western world. The praise bestowed upon Hitler came from generations of teachings from families.

The conversation shifted to another villain in modern history, bin Laden. While many students knew him to be an evil man who killed innocent people and was an embarrassment to the Muslim way of life, it was hardly unanimous. My son was reminded of some of the good things bin Laden had done, namely war against the United States. Bin Laden’s death was viewed as a sneak attack against a crusader, someone who stood for justice. Official Islamic organizations will have you believe that bin Laden’s death was justice. However, the reaction of these young people from all over the world will determine bin Laden’s martyr status in future generations.

I was stunned and angry. How could this happen around the world? These are the wrongdoers. They killed innocent people for their own sadistic causes, and history hasn’t taught these people anything. Then I thought on it, more and more.

Neocon Lies Could Trigger Nuclear War

by John Myers on Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Neocon Lies Could Trigger Nuclear War


Washington never runs out of Adolf Hitlers. Two decades ago, it was Saddam Hussein. Then, it was it was Osama bin Laden. In quick succession, it was Syria’s Bashar Assad and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. Last week, the newest Hitler was dubbed. He is Russian President Vladimir Putin, who was given that moniker by former Secretary of State and 2016 Presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton.

Clinton pronounced that if Putin’s order to send troops to Russia’s strategically essential and mostly Russian populated Crimea “sounds familiar, it’s what Hitler did back in the ’30s. All the Germans that were … the ethnic Germans, the Germans by ancestry who were in places like Czechoslovakia and Romania and other places, Hitler kept saying they’re not being treated right. I must go and protect my people and that’s what’s gotten everybody so nervous.”

What should have everybody nervous is that Clinton is lying. The real Nazis are the ultra-right-wingers who now control the Ukrainian government, even as events have spun out of control. They come from generations of anti-Semites. It is they who believe Europe’s troubles stem from Jews in Moscow. This is the reality that Clinton easily brushes aside out of her loyalty to her New World Order masters — masters she may fully serve in 2016.

Worse yet, the mainstream media and those who hang on every lie uttered by Clinton and other neocons are indignant over the fate of freedom-loving Ukrainians. Even though Putin is no longer a communist, those who shape American opinions are eager to paint him as a nefarious ex-Red, a former KGB assassin who schemes as Hitler did.

And so begins the latest crusade for the neocons, but this time the crusade is against a resolute Russian leader who commands a modern nuclear arsenal capable of destroying the world several times over. Picking on Putin is not the same game as beating up Saddam or hunting down bin Laden. It has dangerous consequences that have not been thought through since old guard communists like Andrei Gromyko were ousted from the Kremlin in the 1980s.

Three decades later, modern Russian leaders are playing an updated version of “Dr. Strangelove.” They understand all too well that America has a weak hand, given that its military is stretched thin.

At the same time, even a cursory understanding of the past four centuries reveals that Crimea is a territory attached to Russia as much as Scotland is a part of Great Britain. That Crimea is rich in natural resources contributed to Germany’s launching World War II. Of strategic importance to Russian leaders is that Crimea holds Sevastopol, the home base of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet. It is Russia’s only warm-water port, the only port Russia has that provides access to the Black Sea, the Mediterranean and the Atlantic year-round. To the Kremlin it is non-negotiable.

Yet Clinton and her fellow neocons in both parties act as if Crimea were essential to America’s strategic interest. In accordance with this fallacy, they are fermenting fear and inciting hatred against Russia for protecting what is in its national interest in a region populated mostly by Russians.

America’s Black Leaders Are Race-Baiting, Guilt-Mongering, Lying Liberals

by John Myers on Thursday, March 6th, 2014

America’s Black Leaders Are Race-Baiting, Guilt-Mongering, Lying Liberals

Last week, President Barack Obama announced the “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative.

And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel your brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper? — Genesis 4:9

“I’m not my brother’s keeper,” my mother used to say. She and my father survived the Great Depression. Through decades of hard work, they made themselves a comfortable life. But a higher authority than my late mother, President Barack Obama, believes we are our brother’s keeper.

Last week, Obama launched his initiative that will create opportunities for young black and Hispanic men. His explanation is that this is a way he is going to help those two minorities in an economy racked by civil discord. And his program is being hailed as the “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative. The Obama Administration will partner with foundations, nonprofit groups and businesses to equal the playing field for blacks and Hispanics.

The program should be called Big Brother because it focuses on a single leader, who happens to be black, who has decided by himself that young black and Hispanic youths are going to be given special advantages. If you are white, Native American or Asian, tough luck. In true Muslim tradition, Obama is not giving a hand up to young women of any race.

According to the President, groups have already invested $150 million into the program and will invest another $200 million over the next five years. And there is no stopping it; Obama has already signed an order to establish the My Brother’s Keeper Task Force, which will determine how to help black kids help themselves. It sounds discriminatory and self-aggrandizing for the President, who was shameless while presenting it.

“Fifty years after Dr. [Martin Luther] King [Jr.] talked about his dream for America’s children, the stubborn fact is that the life chances for the average black or brown child in this country lags behind by almost every measure and is worse for boys and young men,” said the President.

This is just the latest publicity stunt by Obama so that he can, with a wave of a wand and a few hundred million dollars, change black fortunes. Until now, he has been remiss in doing so, unless it added to his legacy.

Obama’s Sermon On The Mount

TIME reported:

Last February, Obama met with a group of young men at Hyde Park Academy on Chicago’s South Side, who were a part of the Becoming a Man program within the school. He spoke candidly with the group about his experiences, acknowledging the fact that as a man of color who was raised by a single mother, their lives were inherently similar. The only difference, he said, was the fact that he grew up in an environment that was more forgiving.

When I went to high school, I must have missed Becoming a Man Day. I got those lessons from my father when I was young enough that discipline still mattered, before age 12 and not 17. During his long business trips for his magazine, my mother was his XO, always at the ready with the big, old, sterling-silver brush.

The Clintons Must Be Stopped

by John Myers on Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

This is article 20 of 27 in the topic 2016 Elections

“My biggest, you know, regret is what happened in Benghazi. It was a terrible tragedy…”
— Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Jan. 27

“The lady doth protest too much, methinks.” — “Hamlet”

Just a year before she made an apology of sorts, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was protesting with every fiber of her being about assuming any blame regarding the massacre in Benghazi, Libya.

Clinton was somewhere between screaming and pleading with Congress a year ago. “It wasn’t my fault” was central to her message, and there was ire in her words — especially those directed at Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.).

“With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans,” Clinton scolded. “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?”

It happens to make a very big difference why those Americans died, because their blood may be on your hands, Mrs. Clinton. And if you can’t admit that or accept any blame, it suggests you are incapable of a leadership position, that you are incapable of being the President of The United States of America.

One more question, Madam Secretary, how can you regret something that wasn’t your fault?

Slick Hillie?

The answer that is probably true is that Hillary knew damn well that those murders were her fault. Or, well, at least she is sorry now.

Thus begins the litmus test of whether Hillary Clinton has the Teflon skin that so deflected blame from her husband, President Bill Clinton, who was blameless when he seduced a 21-year-old intern, blameless when he lied about it under oath and blameless throughout a multitude of lies he told about his potentially criminal financial dealings.

To both Clintons, the ends justify the means, which is the greater good — their greater good. That means more lying through their teeth and both buying off or intimidating political or personal enemies.

In fact, the Clintons’ zeal to retake the Presidency has become a hot topic in Washington circles. In his 2012 book about the Obamas, The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House, Edward Klein describes it in breathtaking manner from a firsthand source:


Bill and Hillary were going at it again, fighting tooth and nail over their favorite subject: themselves.

It was a warm summer Sunday–a full year away from the 2012 Democratic National Convention–and Bill Clinton was urging Hillary to think the unthinkable. He wanted her to challenge Barack Obama for their party’s presidential nomination. No American politician had attempted to usurp a sitting president of his own party since Ted Kennedy failed to unseat Jimmy Carter more than thirty years before.

“Why risk everything now?” Hillary demanded to know.

“Because,” Bill replied, “the country needs you!”

“The country needs us!” he shouted, banging a fist on his desk to drive home his point.

“The timing’s not right,” Hillary shot back.

“I want my term [at the State Department] to be an important one… Anyway, I’m young enough to wait my turn and run [for the White House] in the next cycle.”

“I know you’re young enough!” Bill said, raising his voice yet another notch. “That’s not what I’m worried about.

Obama’s Energy Policies: Devotion To Abdullah And Derision Of Alberta

Obama’s Energy Policies: Devotion To Abdullah And Derision Of Alberta


President Barack Obama’s final decision on the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline does not depend on what American greens preach but on what the King of Saudi Arabia orders. It seems the final decree from the oil kingpin has not yet been handed down, although it may be received by Obama when he travels to Saudi Arabia next month.

This will be Obama’s second state visit to see King Abdullah. The king may refuse to allow Obama to sign off on the landmark Keystone XL pipeline deal with Canada, America’s closest ally and largest trading partner.

On paper and before the consideration of politics, the passage of the Keystone XL pipeline is a no-brainer — even for Obama, the man who can make it happen with the stroke of a pen. The President’s own State Department has told him five times that he should sign it into law because the pipeline will not have an egregious impact on the environment and it will give America greater energy security while creating thousands of jobs.

In January, the State Department issued its fifth conclusion on the Keystone project. Again, it determined that the Keystone project would not have a significant impact on global warming (an event taken for granted but not proven).

It’s taken five years so far to decide on what is now a lame-duck bill (pun intended). The greens in Congress may be convinced that Keystone should not be approved because it will damage the environment. The evidence that will build their case: a few hundred dead ducks have flown into tar sands oil pools and died. (Nobody seems to consider that 14 million ducks are legally hunted each year.)

Besides the Daffy Duck argument over oil sands is the fact that the Keystone XL pipeline can deliver three-quarters of a million barrels of crude per day, free from any Arab intervention. That’s not a bad thing when you consider that the mostly Arab OPEC launched two oil embargoes against the United States in the 1970s and it finances extremists who want to kill Americans. (For the liberals who are reading this, Canadians allow girls to get an education and women to ride bicycles. And the last time I checked, Canadians do not behead political opponents in the town square.)

The project will create an estimated 20,000 U.S. jobs — something our “jobs” President declared he was serious about during his State of the Union address.

Obama, either the Saudi prodigal son or a loyal environmentalist, has said the Keystone job numbers are ultra-inflated. The President told The New York Times last summer that the project might create “maybe 2,000 jobs” during construction and “50 to 100 permanent jobs” after that.

TransCanada, the company backing the project, believes the President has grossly underestimated the employment impact. This begs the question: Could Obama be lying for his own political gain? (I would love to comment further, but I would simply be piling on.)

Obama’s 5-Year No-Oil Plan

So here we stand five years into Obama’s Presidency. He still can’t decide what to do with Keystone.

Is Obama’s Secret Army Mobilizing In The Wake Of The Dow’s Demise?

by John Myers on Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

This is article 57 of 61 in the topic Finance
Is Obama’s Secret Army Mobilizing In The Wake Of The Dow’s Demise?

The Dow Jones industrial average, the stock index that represents the wealth and welfare of the Nation, is collapsing before our eyes. With the Dow down almost 1,000 points in just three weeks, I have no doubt that President Barack Obama’s personal police force, his Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), is on standby to engage American citizens in big cities and country communities.

Anyone who believes that JSOC, which originally numbered in the dozens and is now 25,000 strong, was built up to its current size to deal with a few thousand Muslim extremists is disconnected from reality.

“We’re the dark matter. We’re the force that orders the universe but can’t be seen,” a Navy SEAL and JSOC soldier told The Washington Post in 2011.

From whom does this dark force take orders? The son of a Kenyan Marxist commands them. JSOC operates exclusively under the orders of the President of the United States and the Secretary of Defense. What would mobilize this super army into combat? It certainly wouldn’t be some Muslim militants living in the desert 8,000 miles away, sleeping beside their camels and reading from the Quran.

The Hammer Is Cocked On Obama’s Martial Law Mandate

The real purpose of JSOC may be to deal with the millions of Americans who may revolt after years of suffering a sick economy and an onrushing calamitous financial crisis. Many Americans who were once blind can now see. They recognize that the emperor, Barack Obama, has no clothes. They know that the President ruefully ignores the Constitution.

To what extent will Obama and his ruling elite go? The only logical answer is that they will bring any force necessary to protect Obama’s vision of what America should be. The trigger will be a financial collapse, beginning with the Dow and ending with the dollar. It is already set in motion. Neither all of Obama’s horses nor all of Obama’s men can restore our financial system again.

Obama’s personal army already has preparations underway, as Global Research reported in October:

Reports are that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is engaged in a massive, covert military buildup. An article in the Associated Press in February confirmed an open purchase order by DHS for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition. According to an op-ed in Forbes, that’s enough to sustain an Iraq-sized war for over twenty years. DHS has also acquired heavily armored tanks, which have been seen roaming the streets. Evidently somebody in government is expecting some serious civil unrest. The question is, why?

The answer is obvious. Only due to massive Federal spending and the infusion of trillions of fiat dollars by the Federal Reserve did the U.S. economy not collapse completely in 2009. But the Fed and the Federal government only bought themselves some time — enough time to recruit JSOC and provide military orders against Americans. If you think I am being outrageous, then consider recent history.

The BBC reported that “ex-Labour spin doctor” Damian McBride wrote in his book Power Trip that former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown had his hand next to the red phone ready to call out troops during the financial collapse in 2008.

My Top 5 Can’t-Miss Predictions For 2014

by John Myers on Wednesday, January 1st, 2014

My Top 5 Can’t-Miss Predictions For 2014


I cannot unconditionally wish you a Happy New Year, because I don’t think it is going to be all that happy for most of us. So here’s a happy reminder of the good old days, when our worst fears were mostly just that: fears.

Think of all the angst felt by millions of people just 14 years ago, when the world was abuzz over Y2K. Could the computer geeks get it fixed in time? If they didn’t, what would be the outcome? People predicted End of Days scenarios: terribly expensive gasoline, an out-of-control Federal deficit, massive Federal aid for the growing poor, Mideast wars, a Federal government that failed to function and a draconian or even dictatorial American President who not only ignored the Constitution but used his personal authority in ways that once only George Orwell could imagine.

What a relief it was so see the Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball drop and not have the family TV and everything electric turn black when the ball hit the bottom. It seemed like we were free and clear.

Silly me for being worried. It took the election of two American Presidents over the course of 13 years to do what we feared Y2K could do in a couple of weeks. And as it turns out, those two men — George W. Bush and Barack Obama — excelled at selling many things, none more so than fear. Together with the media, they created a fearful Nation. With that in my thoughts, I decided to tell you my forecast for 2014. So here it is, what I see in my crystal ball for 2014:

  1. There will be variable weather. Weather will be unpredictable this year, meaning sometimes it will be hot when it is supposed to be cold and wet when it is supposed to be dry. There will be at least one hurricane, more than one tornado and at least one major flood. This will lead to…
  2. Greens blaming variable weather on fossil fuels. Bet your bottom dollar that, at the very least, MSNBC and CNN will treat variable weather events as proof that man-made carbon is killing the planet.  They will tote out “climate change experts” who will harp on the facts as they see them — including former Vice President Al Gore, who will say something ridiculously stupid that all the progressive liberals will believe. They, of course, will not be alone in trying to make all of us afraid because the Obama Administration will present…
  3. Dire warnings of a potential terrorist strike. Of course, nobody in government will be able to say when or where such an attack will happen — only that we should all be anxious that it will happen. It will dovetail nicely with liberal climatologists who will tell us that bad, perhaps even catastrophic weather may break upon us any day. To deal with the terrorist threat, you can count on Obama’s launching more attacks on Muslim countries and calling them necessary. The Obama Administration won’t come out specifically and say it is to win the hearts and minds of Islam, but that will be the indirect message that mainstream Republicans like Senator John McCain will line up behind.

Record Cold Temperatures Prove Global Warming

by John Myers on Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

This is article 283 of 329 in the topic Global Warming

Record Cold Temperatures Prove Global Warming

The Federal government took a snow day on Dec. 10, but some people braved the blizzard — including the President’s global warming task force.

Oh, the weather outside is frightful.
But for Obama, it seems delightful!
Since he knows we’ve no place to go,
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
Greens show no signs of desisting,
As Gore’s malarkey’s persisting.
So the power’s turned way down low.
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
It’s so cold in here that you need mittens.
And, my dear, your nose is frostbitten.
But as long as Greens shovel the dough,
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

My father used to say: “Make hay when the sun is shining!” It carried meaning, because we really did cut and bail hay on our 80-acre farm.

Such common sense is lost on the Greens. Even if hell were freezing over, they would think only of making more money for themselves via what used to be called global warming. (The new term is “climate change.”) I believe a Green like former Vice President Al Gore could be caught in a blizzard and before succumbing to hypothermia would Tweet contributors, begging for more money and influence before the oceans swallow the land, before more polar bear cubs drown.

How else can you explain last week when President Barack Obama’s global warming task force huddled together during a blizzard in Washington that closed down the Federal government’s offices? reported: “[N]either snow nor sleet could keep members of the State, Local, and Tribal Leaders Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience from their appointed round at the White House.”

Wait a minute! Obama, aka Big Brother, has had to change some wording. The words “global warming” are nowhere to be found in the task force’s name. That’s no big deal for a dictator, really; Josef Stalin did it all the time.

Never mind that Obama embarrasses himself each week with either his ego (taking a selfie at Nelson Mandela’s memorial) or his habitual lies (Obamacare, Benghazi, etc.). But he had a “global warming” task force meeting during a blizzard that even Captain Robert Falcon Scott, who led a doomed expedition to the South Pole, would have refused to attend.

Recently, we’ve seen record cold temperatures. That’s bad PR if you’re on the Green Team. People might jump to the conclusion that, in fact, there is no global warming. Thus, the Greens quickly proclaimed: From now on, “global warming” will be called “climate change.”

Such a savior the President is for the Greens, who have backed him these past six years. It used to be that you could identify global warming only if there was a heat wave or a relentless drought. Then, environmentalists changed the definition to include hurricanes and tornadoes (both also absolute proof of global warming).

All of those things covered on the endless 24-7 news cycle indicated our planet was boiling over, that our children and our grandchildren were going to die like dehydrated camels limping across the scorched Sahara.

But it’s not global warming; and it isn’t limited to heat waves, drought, hurricanes and tornadoes.
