The Wrenching Transformation of America

A Speech by Tom DeWeese - Part 1 of 3
Ladies and gentlemen, I've come a long way to get here and I have such a short time to be with you. So, let's just get everything out on the table right now, shall we?
I believe the American people, and their every action, are being ruled, regulated, restricted, licensed, registered, directed, checked, inspected, measured, numbered, counted, rated, stamped, censured, authorized, admonished, refused, prevented, drilled, indoctrinated, monopolized, extorted, robbed, hoaxed, fined, harassed, disarmed, dishonored, fleeced, exploited, assessed, and taxed to the point of suffocation and desperation.
America is drowning in a sea of rules and regulations, particularly under the guise of "saving the environment."
We all know something is very wrong and we are trying to fix it.
Many in America attempt to fight against one issue or another as they try to understand what is happening to their country. But most fail to see the whole picture and are being crushed under a well organized "divide and conquer" tactic that keeps them reeling from crisis to crisis.
Tonight, I'm going to try to give you at least a peek at the all-encompassing, gut wrenching national transformation that we face -- and, hopefully, help to lift the veil of confusion.Â
To put things in perspective, here are some questions every American should ask their elected officials - especially those supporting "climate change" legislation.
If it is proven that climate change is not man-made, but natural, will you be relieved and excited to know that man is off the hook?
We've been terrorized into accepting that human society was on the brink of extinction because of man-made global warming. We've been warned that, unless we take drastic action to reverse it - then islands will disappear, whole cities will be destroyed and polar bears will drown.
So, if it's not true, will you now help to remove all of the draconian regulations passed during the global warming hysteria? Will you help to restore our Republic with common sense and sound economics?Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
Their answers to these questions should be very illuminating as to the true agenda they seek to impose.
If they are supporting climate change legislation because of a genuine concern for the environment, then they should now be greatly relieved to know that true science is showing more and more evidence that there is no man-made global warming, and in fact, a natural cooling period has begun.
I have just returned from one of the most important Climate Change conferences ever held. Sponsored by the Heartland Institute, more than 700 scientists from all over the world came together to testify that man-made Global Warming does not exist.
Harvard scholar and climate scientist Willie Soon said it best in a recent article he titled, "It's the Sun, stupid."
Dr. Mark Campbell, professor of chemistry at the U.S. Navel Academy in Annapolis recently wrote, "The sky is not burning, and to claim that it is amounts to journalistic malpractice."
Said U.S. Government atmospheric scientist Stanley B, Goldenberg, "It is a blatant lie put forth in the media that makes it seem there is only a fringe of scientists who don't buy into anthropogenic global warming."
In the past year, more than 650 scientists from around the world have expressed their doubts. That's 12 times the number of UN IPCC global warming alarmists.
Top that with the fact that more than 31,000 American scientists have signed a petition saying there is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing disruption of the Earth's climate.Â Â Â
Of course most of the hysteria has been fueled by Al Gore's Oscar-winning, Nobel prize-winning film "An Inconvenient Truth," which almost every American school student has been forced to watch endless times in their classroom.
Well, guess what, the government of Great Britain just ruled that the film cannot be shown in English classrooms unless it carries a disclaimer that says the film is full of mistakes and propaganda.Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
An overwhelming majority of scientist are now telling us that investigative research shows any warming actually stopped in 1999. And, in fact, they say the brief warming period we experienced in the past decade was completely natural, caused in part by storms on the sun, not CO2 emissions from SUVs.
The Sun storms have ended and now a cooling period has begun.Â Â
That's it. Done. Crisis over. Man is not to blame. Hurray! The nation should be rejoicing.
No need for expensive green cars, mercury-filled light bulbs, special home building materials, expensive alternative energy, no bird-killing windmills, no special energy taxes, no extra government oversight committees, no more global climate change conferences - and no need for a Climate Czar. Carol Browner can go back into mothballs.
We can finally clean out the ten feet of fuel on the bottom of the forests and prevent the massive forest fires. We can reestablish the timber industry and all the jobs that were killed.
We can drill American oil and end our dependency on foreigners who hate us. In fact, that stable source of energy will help restore the Detroit auto industry and all of those jobs. And it will help us to stop funding terrorists. What's not to like about drilling American oil?
We didn't need a stimulus package after all - the economy will rebound on its own. We are free. The environment is not in crisis. Rejoice! Rejoice!
That silence you hear is the news media, which refuses to report what any skeptic has to say.
That silence you hear is the lack of effort on Capitol Hill to start to pull back from the climate change hysteria.
That silence you hear is from the White House where President of Change, Barack Obama now has an EPA director, a Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) director and a full blown Climate Change Czar, all working to impose huge cut backs in energy use, with more taxes, and more rules and regulations that will bring an already damaged economy to its knees - all in the name of man-made Global Warming - which doesn't exist.
...And that silence you hear is from global corporations which have bought into Al Gore's lie and invested heavily in the promised green economy. In fact, their dollars are the only thing green about any of it. Their commercials are promoting the lies and changing our way of life. "Going Green" is the mantra of the day. None of them are about to change any of these policies, simply to accommodate a few inconvenient scientific facts.
In spite of all the evidence to the contrary, in spite of literally thousands of real scientists joining the ranks of the skeptics, Gore just told Congress that the Global Warming crisis is even worse than predicted. Obama, our newly crowned king said, "The science is settled."
Why do they continue to promote a lie? Because global warming never was about protecting the environment. It's nothing more than the excuse to enforce global governance on the planet by creating a new global economy based on the environment rather than on goods and services.
