The other day Eric “Time to Ditch Reagan” Cantor told Tea Party conservatives to “quit whining” and vote, and now House Speaker “Tammy Faye” Boehner tells them to “get their asses in line” and pass his debt-ceiling proposal, even though his proposal immediately raises the Debt Ceiling by $1 trillion and phases in the $1.2 trillion in cuts over 10 years, which means Democrats will renege and no cuts will ever be made.  

Like John McCain, Boehner finds it easier to lash out at conservative Republicans than call to account his leftist Democrat comrades in the Senate.

House Republicans have already passed both the Ryan and Cut, Cap, and Balance plans, but the Democrat-controlled Senate dismissed them without reservation, even though Senate Democrats have not submitted a budget in over 2 years and the Ruler hasn’t submitted a budget since he took office.

Yet Boehner and Cantor seem perfectly content to send up another plan for Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats to dismiss out of hand.

While Democrat leaders fight like cornered cats to push through legislation that has proven harmful to the country and didn’t have the backing of the people, Republican leaders are quick to give in to Democrat demands and walk back legislation that has had the support of the people and would have helped the country.  

Publicly denouncing the Bread and Circuses administration and Democrat-controlled Senate as enemies of the process would make more sense and be more productive than attacking fellow Republicans; unless of course the parties’ leaders are all on the same side, and Boehner and Cantor regard the Ruler and Reid as rivals, not enemies.

Recent NASA satellite data reveal a “huge discrepancy” between the climate models foisted by global warming proponents and real-world facts.

Climate models have assumed that human carbon dioxide emissions increase atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds, which trap heat and cause global temperatures to rise.

But satellite data from 2000 through 2011 show there is far less heat being trapped than the climate models predicted; in addition, the atmosphere is releasing heat into space faster than the models predicted.

“The satellite observations suggest there is much more energy lost to space during and after warming than the climate models show.”—Dr. Roy Spencer, principal research scientist at the University of Alabama, Huntsville

The major premise of the global warming theory has been that human carbon dioxide emissions are trapping a certain amount of heat in the earth’s atmosphere and preventing it from escaping into space.

Americans can sleep well knowing the planet doesn’t have a fever after all.

“With all of the hysteria, all of the fear, all of the phony science, could it be that man-made global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people? It sure sounds like it.”—U.S. Senator James M. Inhofe (R-Okla)
