President Obama's Energy Department is sending $6.5 million to American Indian tribes to support tribal energy development.

More than half of that $6.5 million will be spent on 13 "feasibility studies," which determine whether and how a project will work. Only $1.3 million will be spent on actual heating projects -- including one that uses wood to heat a tribal visitor center.

A comparison: July 4, 1776 - July 4, 2012

On July 4, 1776, the American colonists declared independence from an overbearing king and legislature that imposed their will upon them without any regard for their petitions. "We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us," states the Declaration of Independence. Sound familiar? A defiant president and a Congress controlled by Democrats granted themselves an unwarranted jurisdiction when they, the Democrats only, passed ObamaCare. "Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury," the Declaration states. Sound familiar?

Obama remains oblivious to lessons China and India learned the hard way.

The political slogan "Forward" served Barack Obama well during this year's election campaign. It said that he was for going forward, while Republicans were for "going back to the failed policies that got us into this mess in the first place." It was great political rhetoric and great political theater. Moreover, the Republicans did virtually nothing to challenge its shaky assumptions with a few hard facts that could have made those assumptions collapse like a house of cards. More is involved than this year's political battles. The word "forward" has been a political battle cry on the left for more than a century. It has been almost as widely used as the left's other favorite word, "equality," which goes back more than two centuries.

A Maine homosexual activist has used a court to deliver the latest "SWAT" attack on a pro-family advocate, obtaining a protective order even though the defendant, Brian Camenker of Mass Resistance, never had contacted him.

"SWAT" attacks on pro-family and pro-faith ministries have developed lately, and they involve someone using a telephone program and calling authorities purporting to be from the ministry or ministry leader's location. They "report" a murder, shooting or similar event. SWAT teams from local police jurisdictions then descend on the unsuspecting ministry leader and his family with guns drawn, creating high levels of danger for the innocent people.

One wonders how long it will be before we start reading stories about people getting arrested merely for coming within eyesight or snapping photos at the entrance gate at one of these off-limits public lands the Administration of President Barack Obama is punitively closing down during the phony Federal government shutdown. A Massachusetts newspaper reported Tuesday on the "Gestapo" treatment locals received at the hands of Federal officers on a vacation trip out to Yellowstone National Park. Unlike earlier reports from the National Mall in Washington, D.C., where veterans seemed able to exercise their collective will to thwart Park Service officials who were "guarding" barricaded monuments, these people were actually rounded up and held at gunpoint in a Yellowstone park hotel.

"If environmentalists are going to get results in their push for clean energy, they need to pipe down about climate change and speak up about national security and job creation" --Arnold Schwarzenegger

Er, that's not even selective memory. More like amnesia. I understand the part about running from your Plan A -- after all, this very marching order first came from pollster Stanley Greenberg and led to John Kerry saying of his cap-and-trade bill "This is not an environment bill" (oddly, it amended the Clean Air Act, granted power to EPA, mentions 'environment' 97 times, 'climate' 220 times, 'greenhouse' 650 more times...but, hey, the pollster said say something else!).

I'm currently seeking a government grant to develop my idea for creating "green" energy by harnessing the wind power generated by the doors of DoE-backed solar operations slamming shut simultaneously.

By my calculations this plan would create enough electricity to power Paducah for almost a year... maybe more.

Big Journalism

by Dr. Ron Ross

November 7, 2011

Every movement in history experiences challenges that cause it to morph from the purpose and design of its founders, usually in an effort to stay alive.

The incredible world-wide movement of citizen journalism is no different. In chapter one of our* book titled "Handbook for Citizen Journalists," I point out that the movement is happening with no organized structure, no inspirational luminary, no headquarters, no power center, little or no funding, usually no government help and often government interference, no mass marketing strategy, no fixed standards-and most significantly-wild innovation.

A Swedish sociology professor has nominated Edward Snowden for the Nobel Peace Prize.

He says the NSA whistleblower could help "save the prize from the disrepute incurred by the hasty and ill-conceived decision" to give the 2009 award to Barack Obama. In his letter addressed to the Norwegian Nobel Committee, Stefan Svallfors praised Snowden for his "heroic effort at great personal cost." He stated that by revealing the existence and the scale of the US surveillance programs, Snowden showed "individuals can stand up for fundamental rights and freedoms."

"Back to school" may soon mean something more like "back to political education camp" if liberal regulators have their way.

If your child is looking to get a high school diploma in Maryland, reading, writing, and arithmetic may no longer be enough. Students may soon have to be able to "[e]xplain that differences in the behavior of individuals arise from the interaction of culture and experience" in order to graduate. Despite it sounding more like the stuff of sociology than hard environmental science, that line is taken from a draft of the state's new "Environmental Literacy Curriculum."
