Bipartisan Belief That Energy Tax Will Hurt Our Global Competitiveness

Small and medium size businesses create  nearly 100% of the new jobs in a growing economy. 

If either President Obama’s Cap and Trade Energy Tax or his compulsory health insurance plan with mandatory coverages were passed, the impact on the U.S. economy will be a complete disaster.

MAJOR REDUCTIONS IN CARBON EMISSIONS ARE NOT WORTH THE MONEY DEBATE: PETER HUBER

 

Small and medium size businesses will be hit with massive tax increases.

Consumers will be hit with price increases for all goods and services that use energy for electricity, heating and transportation.

The result will be more layoffs and a prolonged recession that will not end until 2011 at the earliest.

The official unemployment rate could easily hit 15% with over 22,000,000 Americans seeking a full time job.

The real unemployment rate could easily hit 22% with over 30,000,000 Americans seeking a full time job.

During 1933, the worse year of the Great Depression, there were approxomately 13,000,000 Americans looking for a job.

Today over 15,000,000 Americans are looking for work–2,000,000 more that in the Great Depression.

The Obama Depression arrives and wrecks the US economy if either the cap and trade energy tax or the compulsory health insurance bills are passed.

Obama lied and the economy died.

Who Pays for Cap and Trade?

Hint: They were promised a tax cut during the Obama campaign.

“…The Congressional Budget Office — Mr. Orszag’s former roost — estimates that the price hikes from a 15% cut in emissions would cost the average household in the bottom-income quintile about 3.3% of its after-tax income every year. That’s about $680, not including the costs of reduced employment and output. The three middle quintiles would see their paychecks cut between $880 and $1,500, or 2.9% to 2.7% of income. The rich would pay 1.7%. Cap and trade is the ideal policy for every Beltway analyst who thinks the tax code is too progressive (all five of them).

But the greatest inequities are geographic and would be imposed on the parts of the U.S. that rely most on manufacturing or fossil fuels — particularly coal, which generates most power in the Midwest, Southern and Plains states. It’s no coincidence that the liberals most invested in cap and trade — Barbara Boxer, Henry Waxman, Ed Markey — come from California or the Northeast.

Coal provides more than half of U.S. electricity, and 25 states get more than 50% of their electricity from conventional coal-fired generation. In Ohio, it totals 86%, according to the Energy Information Administration. Ratepayers in Indiana (94%), Missouri (85%), New Mexico (80%), Pennsylvania (56%), West Virginia (98%) and Wyoming (95%) are going to get soaked. …”

Father John Corapi

“…Father John Anthony Corapi (born 20 May 1947) is an American Catholic priest. He has both television and radio ministries, and has conducted speaking tours in North America.[1]

Corapi was born in Hudson, New York. In high school he was a football player and considered a career in professional sports.[citation needed] He joined the US Army desiring to become a Green Beret, but suffered a shoulder injury during the Special Forces Qualification Course, thus medically disqualified.[2] After being largely disappointed he couldn’t he couldn’t serve in the Vietnam War, especially when others were being forced to,[citation needed] he served the army in Heidelberg, Germany as a clerk and typist during that same era.

After his discharge, he received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Pace University in 1973. Corapi became a financial advisor to Tropicana in Las Vegas, then moved to Los Angeles and became a real estate agent.[1] At this point, Corapi’s life began to descend into the underworld of drugs. He began to attend parties involving illegal drug use and group sexual activity.[citation needed] At the height of his “success”, as measured in conventional terms, Corapi lived in a house in Malibu, drove a Ferrari, and owned a personal yacht.[citation needed] After being introduced to cocaine, however, his success dwindled, sometimes spending $10,000 per week on drugs. He also had several (lucky) encounters with police, including a time where after a high speed police chase, he was stopped by a roadblock with enough cocaine in his trunk to get him up to forty years in jail.[citation needed] He would later refer to his drug use of this time as an encounter with a demon, and his lifestyle eventually led to a mental breakdown and homelessness following a stay at a VA psychiatric hospital.[3]

At this point, Corapi spent three years wandering the streets as a vagrant.[citation needed] His mother sent him a prayer card with the Hail Mary prayer and asked him to pray it once a day. He eventually changed his life, escaping homelessness and illicit sex and drugs.[3] At this point, his mother sent him a one-way airline ticket back to New York. He then lived with his mother for some time, coming to God on June 24, 1984.[4] He then entered the seminary, and on 26 May 1990, was ordained a deacon, by the Bishop of the Diocese of Corpus Christi, Texas.[citation needed]

On 26 May 1991, Pope John Paul II ordained Corapi to the priesthood. Corapi served as a parish priest in Hudson, New York and Robstown, Texas.[citation needed] He was the Director of Catholic Faith Formation and of the Bishop’s Project on the Catechism of the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Sacramento, California. Corapi is now a member of the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity. He has received a Masters degree in Sacred Scripture from Holy Apostles Seminary, Cromwell, Connecticut, and a Doctorate in Dogmatic Theology from the University of Navarre in Pamplona, Spain.[citation needed]

In 2005, Corapi resolved litigation in connection with what he claimed was unnecessary heart surgery.[5] Due to serious health problems suffered in 2008, Corapi has curtailed his public appearances and for the time being broadcasts his message worldwide solely from his studio in Montana.[citation needed]

He is the author of a series of sermons called “The Darkness Will Not Prevail”.[6]

33 Minutes Trailer :: LONG PROMO (inHD)

“…33 Minutes: Protecting America in the New Missile Age is a one-hour documentary produced by The Heritage Foundation that tells the story of the very real threat foreign enemies pose to every one us. The truth is brutal – no matter where on Earth a missile is launched from it would take 33 Minutes or less to hit the U.S. target it was programmed to destroy.

Nuclear proliferation around the world, and the threat of a ballistic missile attack of some kind is mounting as more and more countries obtain nuclear technology. The ongoing threat toward America is also accelerating due to the fact that there are many rogue nations and terrorist organizations who either have or are seeking ballistic missiles and nuclear technology.

The challenges of protecting America and its citizens for President Obama’s administration are great. Featuring rare footage and in-depth interviews with leading experts in the field, 33 Minutes is the definitive documentary exposing the untold vulnerability we all face and the action plan necessary to revive a strategic missile defense system that America uniquely can develop, maintain, and employ for its own defense and the peace-loving world’s security. …”

 

33 Minutes Protecting America in the Missile Age

http://www.heritage.org/33-minutes/

 

Iran has been at war with the United States for over thirty years using mostly proxies to do their fighting.

President Obama announced today that the proposed missile defense program to defend Europe from a nuclear missile attack from Iran will be cancelled for 10 missiles based in Poland and a radar facility base in the Czech republic.

This will perceived as weakness by the enemies of the United States and a complete victory of Putin in Russia. 

Fully expect Israel to take out both Iran’s nuclear weapons facilities and missiles sites in the near future.

Joe Biden was right. Barack Obama was tested in the foreign policy arena and failed the test.

 

Russia: First to test Obama?

 

Vice-President Biden emphasized that he was heavily involved in this decision.

Another reason to question the wisdom of the decision.

President Reagan won the cold war.

President Obama is losing the Iranian war.

U.S. foreign policy is in disarray.

Meanwhile,  President Obama tries to sell the American people on his proposed compulsory public option insurance plan that will lead to a Federal Government monopoly single payer system–socialized medicine–by appearing all over the television networks this Sunday.

The vast majority of the American people are satified with their health insurance.

Those Americans who have lost their jobs do not want to be forced to buy a government health insurance plan when they need the money to pay for food, rent, electricity, gas and other expenses.

The American people want to know where are the new jobs, the green jobs, you promised?

The official unemployment rate will hit 10% this month with over 15,000,000 unemployed Americans seeking a job.

The actual unemployment rate wiil hit 17% with over 25,000,000 Americans seeking a full time job.

During the worse year of the Great Depression the number of unemployed was less than 13,000,000.

The Bush recession has ended and the Obama Depressions has started.

Where are the jobs Mr. President?

President Obama is quickly becoming not only the most inexperienced and ignorant President in modern times, but also the most incompetent and arrogant.

Hope is neither an economic policy nor national defense strategy.

God save the United States of America and the republic for which it stands.

 Munich of the Skies
Ken Blackwell

“…President Obama has chosen this day — the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Poland — to announce the abandonment of U.S.-backed missile defense for Eastern Europe.
 
It’s worth looking back at how we got here. After the 1989 breakup of the Soviet Empire — that “evil empire” Ronald Reagan had done so much to end-the newly free states of Central and Eastern Europe naturally looked to the United States, and to a lesser extent, to their Western European brethren, to safeguard their long sought freedom. Poland and the Czech Republic were among the first to apply for membership in NATO.
 
The U.S., it seemed, would extend it’s nuclear umbrella of protection over these newly independent states. In these free states, streets and squares were being named for Ronald Reagan — after the joyous people first pulled down statues of Lenin.
 
We should remember not just Munich, and not just the largely peaceful revolution of 1989. We should remember that Soviet invasion of Poland on September 17, 1939, seventy years ago.
 
Less than a month earlier, Soviet dictator Josef Stalin had concluded the Nazi-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact with Adolf Hitler. That pact gave Hitler a free hand to invade Poland from the West. It also secretly approved Stalin’s plan to invade Poland from the East.
 
Young Karol Wojtyla — later to become Pope John Paul II — fled eastward when the Germans invaded Poland on September 1, 1939, igniting World War II. Karol and his ailing father sought refuge from Nazis so brutal, so inhuman that they shot Poles who failed to step into the streets to let their German overlords pass them on the sidewalks.
 
But when, on September 17, 1939, Karol and his father learned that the Soviets had invaded Poland from the East, they returned to their little town. They were more willing to face death and enslavement under the Nazis than to take their chances under the Russian domination. …”

U.S. scraps missile defense shield plans 

“…The Obama administration will scrap the controversial missile defense shield program in Eastern Europe, a senior administration official confirmed to CNN Thursday.  

The U.S. has been testing the ability of ground-based interceptor missiles to hit long-range ballistic missiles.

The comment followed similar statements from officials in Poland and the Czech Republic — where key elements of the system were to be located — but was the first confirmation from an American official.

Vice President Joe Biden earlier refused to confirm to CNN that the George W. Bush-era plan was being shelved.

But he did explain the logic of doing so, saying Iran — a key concern for the United States — was not a threat.

“I think we are fully capable and secure dealing with any present or future potential Iranian threat,” he told CNN’s Chris Lawrence in Baghdad, where he is on a brief trip.

“The whole purpose of this exercise we are undertaking is to diminish the prospect of the Iranians destabilizing that region in the world. I am less concerned — much less concerned — about the Iranian potential. They have no potential at this moment, they have no capacity to launch a missile at the United States of America,” he said.

Biden said he is “deeply” involved in the review of the missile defense program. ..”

Obama to Drop Poland, Czech Missile Defense Proposal

By Douglas Lytle and Lenka Ponikelska 

“…U.S. President Barack Obama will abandon plans championed by his predecessor George W. Bush to build a missile-defense system in Poland and the Czech Republic, Czech Prime Minister Jan Fischer said.

Obama phoned Fischer last night and also informed the Polish government, the premier told reporters in Prague. Undersecretary of State for Arms Control Ellen Tauscher met with Polish officials representing Prime Minister Donald Tusk this morning and will arrive in Prague this afternoon.

“Shortly after midnight Barack Obama called me to announce that his government is withdrawing plans to place a missile shield in the Czech Republic,” Fischer said. “We were aware of the possibility and were also aware of the fact that they were analyzing the plan.”

A White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed that Obama had called Fischer while declining to say what was discussed. Obama will make a statement on missile defense at 10:15 a.m. in Washington, according to a White House statement. …”

US Missile Defense Complex in Poland

“…The US missile defense complex in Poland, also called the European Interceptor Site (EIS), is part of the Ballistic Missile Defense European Capability. It is planned to be placed in Redzikowo, Słupsk, Poland, forming a Ground-Based Midcourse Defense system in conjunction with a US narrow-beam midcourse tracking and discrimination radar system in the Brdy, Czech Republic. It consists of up to 10 silo-based interceptors, a two-stage version of the existing three-stage Ground Based Interceptor (GBI), with Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV), with a closing speed of about 7 km/s.

According to the United States administration the system is intended to protect against future missiles from Iran, such as the alleged Shahab-6, although in November 2007 the U.S. National Intelligence Estimate reported that Iran’s nuclear weapons program had been halted since fall 2003[1]. It has also been pointed out that Central Europe is way beyond the range of any missile that Iran currently has.[2]

Russia strongly opposes the system. As an alternative it has proposed sharing the Qabala Radar in Azerbaijan, which Russia leases, but for the US this is not an acceptable substitute.[3] One of the most major difficulties from the Russian perspective is that the associated radar installation, which is to be based in the Czech Republic, is going to be able to collect information about all movements in Russian airspace up to the Urals mountains,[citation needed] which is all the European part of Russia.

The missile shield has received some local opposition in the area, including a protest in March 2008, when an estimated 300 protesters marched on the proposed site of the missile base[4].

…”

33 Minutes

“…Last August, Poland and the U.S. came to an agreement. The U.S would deploy 10 missile interceptors to the country. The U.S. and the Czech Republic reached a radar installation agreement in July. Part of President George Bush’s “third site” effort to boost Central Europe’s defenses against rogue states like Iran, the missile shield agreements were a source of contention between the U.S. and Russia. The former Soviet Union claimed, rather disingenuously, that both bases would pose a threat to its national security.

Bush stood firm against Russia’s accusations and tried to assure leaders that nothing could be further from the truth. The shields would strengthen transatlantic security against the evolving Middle Eastern ballistic missile threat, allowing us to extend our own security umbrella to our European allies.

After Barack Obama was elected, those who supported the shields knew it was only a matter of time that the new president would not only scale back defense, but likely renege on our agreements with Poland and the Czech Republic. Months ago, he offered Russia a “secret” deal: We’d cancel our plans in exchange for Russia’s help with Iran. Russia refused to issue tougher sanctions against Iran, but oddly enough, Obama abandoned the bases anyway.

Russia got what it wanted without offering anything in return. Putin must be overjoyed. …”
