The Left’s Assault On Our Values

dem agsIn yesterday’s report, I told you how congressional liberals were attacking the Second Amendment. (They’re still at it. Anti-gun politicians staged a sit-in on the House floor [Wednesday] morning demanding votes on gun control legislation.) Now I want to tell you about the left’s ongoing assault on the First Amendment.

…snip…

Meanwhile, another First Amendment controversy has been brewing, this one related to free speech. A number of left-wing state attorneys general are attempting to prosecute global warming skeptics for fraud. They are using the brute force of big government to shut down the debate.

Thankfully, this overreach is getting serious pushback. Last week, more than a dozen conservative state attorneys general publicly warned that if climate change skeptics could be prosecuted for fraud, so could global warming alarmists like Al Gore, whose wild predictions have never panned out.

Not long ago, the left was panicking about the coming ice age, not to mention global famine caused by overpopulation and “peak oil.” I’d say the right has a far stronger case to make when it comes to prosecuting environmentalist fraud.

    Too bad the picture wasn’t a better group shot of the modern era thought police . Non scientists trying to silence and threaten people who dare
    not promote their lobby efforts .
    Democracy is not well served when some State AG’s start acting as lobbyist’s ,using their positions to witch hunt targets along with the biggest promoter in the Oh so not scary global warning
    industry .

      And they have virtually unlimited resources to bludgeon opponents into submission.

    This is beginning to follow a pattern . Demagogues trash talk a company to shake them down while
    acting as lobbyist’s. What is very disturbing is when a select few AG’s present themselves as
    lobbyist’s for an industry and then use their office to bully companies and others  they and their behind the scenes associates  specifically target  .
    Other than tax payers paying the AG lobbyist’s salaries  who else has lobbied their cooperation ? What undue influence has occurred ? 
    Of all the energy companies and fossil fuel users why was EXXon targeted . Early silencer discount ? Side deal ?

    If the State of Massachusetts knew or thought CO2 was a pollutant before 2000
    why did they not advise the public they were  banning  fossil fuels ? Why have they not done so by now ?    Why does the State of Massachusetts  use  
    fossil fuels today if they think it is causing the earth to have a fever or is  otherwise  harmful to the public ?  When and how  did they form  their negative  opinion about CO2, a gas known  to be  highly beneficial and essential to plant growth ?    
     Have the elected officials of Massachusetts  passed  a resolution to authorize the AG to act as a lobbyist for the ”  Clean Power ” industry ? Is so when ?
    When did the elected State officials become aware their AG was acting as a lobbyist and engaged in speculative investigation using AG powers to demand  documents from forty years ago ? Why was 40 years chosen ? Was this just after the alleged scientifically based  1970’s global cooling scare ? Did Massachusetts encourage greater production of CO2 during the 1970’s global cooling scare ? What did Massachusetts tell the public to do during the global cooling scare ?      
      Why would the AG of the  State of Massachusetts target one publically traded  fossil fuel company among hundreds ? Why would the AG target Non profit entities that question many aspects of the earth has a fever hypothesis ? Who directed the AG’s to target  the entities they have ?
    How did AL Gore end up with this clique of AG’s ?  Who invited him ?
    Does the State of Massachusetts have an environmental agency that consists of scientists ? When did they start telling  elected officials about
    negative and positive aspects of CO2 ? If CO2 is considered to be negative has the State banned greenhouses that rely on doubling and tripling
    CO2 to assist with plant growth ? If not why not ?  
        Thank you AG’s and your fellow lobbyist’s . There was no other way to get you to court .
