    From: Gary L. Bauer


    We Are Grandparents!

    Our first grandchild has just been born to our daughter Sarah and her husband, Rodney. Asher Lee Anderson weighed in at 8 pounds, 2 ounces and it looks to me like he may be another conservative! Seriously, everyone is fine, and we are thankful for God’s gift of life. Our daughter Elyse is excited about being a fantastic aunt. Her husband, Jake, and our son, Zach, are thrilled to be uncles, and Carol and I are looking forward to grandparenthood. (All advice is welcome.)


    Mush vs. Steel

    Barack Obama came back from his Asian trip with nothing to benefit the U.S. Meanwhile, Iranian “strong man” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad continues to outmaneuver the Obama Administration, even in our own back yard. The Shiite fundamentalist is strengthening ties with Cuba and Venezuela. Today, he is in resource-rich Brazil, making deals and taunting the United States. From there, he heads to Bolivia to continue to bolster his influence in the Western Hemisphere.

    After a year of watching Obama’s limp-wristed foreign policy, the Holocaust-denying dictator has concluded he knows his adversary well. He told the Brazilian media that the U.S. and Israel “don’t have the courage” to attack Iran and stop his nuclear weapons program. He is probably right about Barack Obama, but I suspect he has misjudged Israel.

    Back home in Iran, Ahmadinejad continues to smash dissent while Obama and the State Department grovel at his feet, begging for negotiations. Ahmadinejad laughs in return, and strengthens his control of Iran. Six thousands military centers are being opened in elementary schools throughout the Islamic Republic to indoctrinate young jihadists. The Revolutionary Guards are being given control of various forms of communication – telephone land lines, cell phone companies and Internet providers. In the spring, it will launch its own news agency to spout the mullahs’ propaganda.

    But no insult, no affront, no threat from Iran will dispel our president’s delusional view that if only he could sit down with Ahmadinejad they could kiss and make up. Unfortunately for us, Obama’s “mush” is no match for Ahmadinejad’s “steel.” With each hour, we grow closer to an unprecedented defeat of U.S. interests in the Middle East.


    Leftwing Lies

    In past reports, I’ve expressed skepticism about the so-called global warming consensus. Not only did the science seem suspect, often contradicting common sense, but it was clearly ideologically driven. Like the promise that more government programs would save money, the radical environmental movement has a terrible track record of making hysterical predictions that never materialize. And its solutions are always the same – bigger government and higher taxes.

    In recent days, there have been shocking revelations that the science behind the global warming scare may well be a total scam. E-mails have been leaked from key scientists that appear to expose blatant data manipulation and efforts to suppress dissent. Science and academia are supposed to be all about free inquiry. But these scientists are acting more like petty liberal ideologues determined to pursue their leftwing agenda regardless of the facts.

    I won’t go into all of the details about the emails in this report. You can read more here and here. But this is not just a scientific scandal. “Climategate” is a huge political scandal as well, encompassing leading leftwing luminaries like Al Gore, who have been working for years to impose various socialist schemes aimed at undermining our sovereignty, crippling our economy and redistributing our wealth, all under the guise of combating global warming.

    I’m pleased to report that Senator Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma is demanding an investigation, and rightly so, because the stakes are tremendous. The entire premise of cap and trade – massive new energy taxes and vastly expanded government power – rests on this apparent scam.

    I google'd the name in the "From-zone" and found a US politician by the name of Gary Lee Bauer - who was part of President Reagan's group of trusted advisors.

    Wiki: Gary Bauer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I believe that SnakeDoc received a mass-email from that same Gary Bauer and just copy/pasted it for the rest of us to read and comment on.

    SnakeDoc - is it possible to have the links missed in your copy / paste that I highlighted with bold / underline? BTW: I quoted that part about the environmental scandal because I believe that it is nothing more than smoke being blown around to confuse the masses. There is nothing worse than chicken little (Al Gore) telling everyone that will possibly listen all his lies.

    The Chicken Little Story: There are many versions of the story, but the basic premise is that a chicken eats lunch one day, and believes the sky is falling down because an acorn falls on her head. She decides to tell the King, and on her journey meets other animals who join her in the quest. In most retellings, the animals all have rhyming names such as Henny Penny, Cocky Lockey and Goosey Loosey. Finally, they come across Foxy Loxy, a fox who offers the chicken and her friends his help.

    After this point, there are many endings. In the most famous one, Foxy Loxy eats the chicken's friends, but the last one, usually Cocky Lockey, survives long enough to warn the chicken and she escapes. Other endings include Foxy eating them all; the characters being saved by a squirrel or an owl and getting to speak to the King; the characters being saved by the King's hunting dogs; even one version in which the sky actually falls and kills Foxy Loxy.

    Depending on the version, the moral changes. In the "happy ending" version, the moral is not to be a "Chicken", but to have courage. In other versions the moral is usually interpreted to mean "do not believe everything you are told". In the latter case, it could well be a cautionary political tale: The Chicken jumps to a conclusion and whips the populace into mass hysteria, which the unscrupulous fox uses to manipulate them for his own benefit, sometimes as supper.

    If I may - can I put Al Gore's name in for the next Chicken Little Award which is hosted by Alan Caruba's Anxiety Center?

    Well I'll be skinned and stuffed, oh well, me bad. Is that how you say it Naekid. Its not to late to edit!!!

    Is this the new version...

    The Al Gore Little Story: There are many versions of the story, but the basic premise is that a chicken eats lunch one day, and believes the sky is falling down because an ACORN??? falls on her head. She decides to tell President Obama, and on her journey meets other animals who join her in the quest. In most retellings, the animals all have rhyming names such as Todd Stern, Lynn Rosenthal and Carol Browner . Finally, they come across Van Jones, a fox who offers the chicken and her friends his help.

    After this point, there are many endings. In the most famous one, Van Jones eats the chicken's friends, but the last one, usually Todd Stern, survives long enough to warn the chicken and she escapes. Other endings include Van Jones eating them all; the characters being saved by a squirrel or an owl and getting to speak to Glenn Beck; the characters being saved by Glenn Becks' hunting dogs; even one version in which the sky actually falls and kills Van Jones.

    Depending on the version, the moral changes. In the "happy ending" version, the moral is not to be a "Chicken", but to have courage. In other versions the moral is usually interpreted to mean "do not believe everything you are told". In the latter case, it could well be a cautionary political tale: The Chicken jumps to a conclusion and whips the populace into mass hysteria, which the unscrupulous fox uses to manipulate them for his own benefit, sometimes as supper.
