Greenpeace Founder: Celebrate Carbon Dioxide! One of the Most Essential Elements for Life On Earth

CO2 is Plant Food

By Gary P Jackson

In a recent paper written for the Heartland Institute Greenpeace founder and conservationist Dr. Patrick Moore explains in great detail why he is, what the radical left wing extremists call, a “skeptic” on so-called “global warming.”

Dr Moore tells the reader that, despite the hysterical rantings of lunatics and con artists, carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. Far from it! In fact, as anyone who paid attention in elementary school science class knows, carbon dioxide is an essential element for all life on earth.

Dr Moore also notes that carbon dioxide levels are actually at precariously low levels, to the point of danger. Something will talk about more in a later post today.

Dr Moore, an actual scientist, tells us that we should celebrate carbon dioxide, not fear it. It is an essential; element for all life on earth.

From the article:

Why I am a Climate Change Skeptic

March 20, 2015

[Editor’s Note: Patrick Moore, Ph.D., has been a leader in international environmentalism for more than 40 years. He co-founded Greenpeace and currently serves as chair of Allow Golden Rice. Moore received the 2014 Speaks Truth to Power Award at the Ninth International Conference on Climate Change, July 8, 2014 in Las Vegas. Watch his presentation about this piece in the video below]

By Dr Patrick Moore

I am skeptical humans are the main cause of climate change and that it will be catastrophic in the near future. There is no scientific proof of this hypothesis, yet we are told “the debate is over” and “the science is settled.”

My skepticism begins with the believers’ certainty they can predict the global climate with a computer model. The entire basis for the doomsday climate change scenario is the hypothesis increased atmospheric carbon dioxide due to fossil fuel emissions will heat the Earth to unlivable temperatures.

In fact, the Earth has been warming very gradually for 300 years, since the Little Ice Age ended, long before heavy use of fossil fuels. Prior to the Little Ice Age, during the Medieval Warm Period, Vikings colonized Greenland and Newfoundland, when it was warmer there than today. And during Roman times, it was warmer, long before fossil fuels revolutionized civilization.

The idea it would be catastrophic if carbon dioxide were to increase and average global temperature were to rise a few degrees is preposterous.

Recently, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) announced for the umpteenth time we are doomed unless we reduce carbon-dioxide emissions to zero. Effectively this means either reducing the population to zero, or going back 10,000 years before humans began clearing forests for agriculture. This proposed cure is far worse than adapting to a warmer world, if it actually comes about.

IPCC Conflict of Interest

By its constitution, the IPCC has a hopeless conflict of interest. Its mandate is to consider only the human causes of global warming, not the many natural causes changing the climate for billions of years. We don’t understand the natural causes of climate change any more than we know if humans are part of the cause at present. If the IPCC did not find humans were the cause of warming, or if it found warming would be more positive than negative, there would be no need for the IPCC under its present mandate. To survive, it must find on the side of the apocalypse.

The IPCC should either have its mandate expanded to include all causes of climate change, or it should be dismantled.

Political Powerhouse

Climate change has become a powerful political force for many reasons. First, it is universal; we are told everything on Earth is threatened. Second, it invokes the two most powerful human motivators: fear and guilt. We fear driving our car will kill our grandchildren, and we feel guilty for doing it.

Third, there is a powerful convergence of interests among key elites that support the climate “narrative.” Environmentalists spread fear and raise donations; politicians appear to be saving the Earth from doom; the media has a field day with sensation and conflict; science institutions raise billions in grants, create whole new departments, and stoke a feeding frenzy of scary scenarios; business wants to look green, and get huge public subsidies for projects that would otherwise be economic losers, such as wind farms and solar arrays. Fourth, the Left sees climate change as a perfect means to redistribute wealth from industrial countries to the developing world and the UN bureaucracy.

So we are told carbon dioxide is a “toxic” “pollutant” that must be curtailed, when in fact it is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, gas and the most important food for life on earth. Without carbon dioxide above 150 parts per million, all plants would die.

Human Emissions Saved Planet

Over the past 150 million years, carbon dioxide had been drawn down steadily (by plants) from about 3,000 parts per million to about 280 parts per million before the Industrial Revolution. If this trend continued, the carbon dioxide level would have become too low to support life on Earth. Human fossil fuel use and clearing land for crops have boosted carbon dioxide from its lowest level in the history of the Earth back to 400 parts per million today.

At 400 parts per million, all our food crops, forests, and natural ecosystems are still on a starvation diet for carbon dioxide. The optimum level of carbon dioxide for plant growth, given enough water and nutrients, is about 1,500 parts per million, nearly four times higher than today. Greenhouse growers inject carbon-dioxide to increase yields. Farms and forests will produce more if carbon-dioxide keeps rising.

We have no proof increased carbon dioxide is responsible for the earth’s slight warming over the past 300 years. There has been no significant warming for 18 years while we have emitted 25 per cent of all the carbon dioxide ever emitted. Carbon dioxide is vital for life on Earth and plants would like more of it. Which should we emphasize to our children?

Celebrate Carbon Dioxide

The IPCC’s followers have given us a vision of a world dying because of carbon-dioxide emissions. I say the Earth would be a lot deader with no carbon dioxide, and more of it will be a very positive factor in feeding the world. Let’s celebrate carbon dioxide.

On this Earth Day 2015 while the lunatics, environmental extremists, and Fascists hellbent on world domination [and absolute control of every facet of your miserable life] scream at the top of their lungs about the “evils” of carbon dioxide, please remember, that without this precious and vital element, without Co2, you … and everything else on Planet Earth, would die a horrific death.

The Communists, Socialist, and the Fascists who make up the democrat party, have an agenda and it is an agenda that is not compatible with civilized society.

Celebrate carbon dioxide and enjoy life today, and every day!

Rubio (If President): DACA Would End at Some Point, Immigration Reform Pass, Millions Would Not Be Deported

marco getty

By Isabel Matos

Whew! The beginning of this interview caused quite a stir this weekend. It sounds like a slight error but knowing Univision and its history with Rubio (see next article), it was right to have it clarified. Rubio was reported to have said that the president’s DACA was important, but the translation used from media service Grabien in the original Breitbart News article read: “I believe DACA is important. It can’t be terminated from one moment to the next, because there are already people benefiting from it.” The source that came forward from Rubio’s camp said even Univision’s translation was a little imprecise, and that Rubio’s word-for-word translation should have been “But DACA, I think it’s important not to cancel it from one moment to the next because you already have people benefiting from it.” The transcript below is the one from Univision which I corrected in bold. The tape with imprecise subtitles is on their site.

Program: Al Punto with Jorge Ramos
Content: Interview with Senator Marco Rubio
Air Date: Sunday, April 19, 2015

JR: Senator Marco Rubio, thank you for speaking with us.
 
SMR: Thank you very much, Jorge.
 
JR: Senator, in your book you talk about how excited you were by Barack Obama’s campaign. Nonetheless, Barack Obama did not run as an African-American candidate. You have decided not to run as a Hispanic candidate. Why?
 
SMR:
Well, obviously I’m Hispanic. My heritage, that of my parents, both of them were from Cuba, and obviously, I was raised in a Hispanic community. I think that my message and our policies are policies that apply to every American. There’s no doubt that the Hispanic community is a community of hardworking people, people who are seeking to improve their lives. I do think that our message has a special impact on that community because many of them identify with that story. But I obviously think that it’s a message that applies to everyone and that a president has to work for everyone.
 
JR: As you know, it has always been hard for Republicans to get the Hispanic vote. I wanted to talk with you about very concrete issues that affect Hispanics directly. I would like to start with the issue of deferred action and DACA. If you made it to the White House, would you keep the DACA program; that is, Deferred Action for the Dreamers, and would you keep President Barack Obama’s executive action, which would benefit more than four million undocumented people?
 
SMR:
Well, DACA is going to have to end at some point. I wouldn’t undo it immediately. The reason is that there are already people who have that permission, who are working, who are studying, and I don’t think it would be fair to cancel it suddenly.
But I do think it is going to have to end. And, God willing, it’s going to end because immigration reform is going to pass. DAPA hasn’t yet taken effect, and I think it has impeded progress on immigration, on immigration reform. And since that program hasn’t taken effect yet, I would cancel it. 
But DACA, I think it is important; it can’t be cancelled suddenly because there are already people who are benefiting from it. [This should read:  “But DACA, I think it’s important not to cancel it from one moment to the next because you already have people benefiting from it.”;
But it is going to have to end. It cannot be the permanent policy of the United States. And I don’t think that’s what they’re asking for, either. I think that everyone prefers immigration reform. 
 
JR: But then, to clarify, you would end DACA once immigration reform is approved. But what happens, Senator, if there is no immigration reform? Would you cancel DACA anyway?
 
SMR:
At some point it’s going to have to end. That is, it cannot continue to be the permanent policy of the United States. I do think that if I wind up being president, it will be possible to achieve new immigration reform. It won’t be possible for it to be comprehensive; that is, they are not going to be able to do everything in one massive bill. We already tried that a couple of years ago. We have seen that the political support isn’t there, and I think we’ve spent a lot of time on this process when we could have started moving forward through the three steps that I advocated. Unfortunately, a lot of time has been wasted on that. It has become an even more controversial issue; harder to move forward on that issue. But I still say that it’s important to modernize our system, and that means improving the way we enforce it in the future, to modernize the immigration system so that it’s not so costly and bureaucratic. And we have to deal with 12 million human beings who are already here. And nobody, nobody is advocating a plan to deport12 million human beings. So that issue has to be dealt with, as well.
 
JR: When you announced your candidacy, outside of the building where you announced it, there were a lot of Dreamers, protesting. And then there are some immigrant organizations that have criticized your candidacy. America’s Voice says that you have anti-immigrant positions. I would like to ask you, you were in favor of an immigration reform bill in the Senate, and you voted for it. But today, would you vote in favor of a path to legalization for 11 million undocumented people?
 
SMR:
Well, that can’t be done today for the following reason. I don’t think we can. I have been very clear. I, through that two-year experience, it’s very clear to me. We’re not going to have the votes or the necessary political support in Congress. Today, in some sectors of the American public, in order to move forward on this issue, unless we first prove to the American people that in the future there’s not going to be another
immigration crisis. If we do that, I think that undoubtedly the political support is going to exist to do legalization as you have said. It has to be a process similar to what we advocated in the legislation that I sponsored, and it’s the law that says that, first, the things we’re all familiar with must be present: a background check, pay a fine, begin to pay taxes, get a work permit, and after 10 years, they can apply for their residency. That would be the process, but we can’t get to that point. Politically, the support and the votes in Congress aren’t there until we prove to those members of Congress and the American people that immigration laws are going to be enforced.
 
JR:
Senator, I want to ask you about Cuba. I know it’s an issue close to your heart, since both your parents are Cuban immigrants. Nonetheless, the majority of Cuban-Americans agree with ending the embargo, and they also agree, according to the polls,with this new approach of President Barack Obama to Cuba. If you reached the White House and were president, would you cut relations with Cuba? And what do you think about President Barack Obama’s calling Raúl Castro “president”?
 
SMR:
Well, he isn’t a president. He can call himself whatever he likes, but RaúlCastro hasn’t been elected to absolutely anything. He is tyrant and a dictator. In terms of relations with Cuba, right? I would like to have relations with a free, democratic Cuba, or a country that’s making progress toward that. And that doesn’t exist. The Cuban people are the only people in Latin America who haven’t had free elections in more than 50 years. I think that is unfair, and I think the Cuban people deserve that. In my opinion, I say that it’s still a government that supports terrorism. Just today we’ve seen, this week we’ve seen the news that the FARC have again kidnapped and killed 10 people in Colombia. That is a group that receives help and support and shelter from the Cuban government.
 
JR:
Would you cut relations with Cuba? If you reach the White House, you’ll cut relations?
 
SMR:
Unless it’s a democratic country or it starts taking concrete steps toward democracy, of course.
 
JR: Senator, you are the youngest candidate among those who have run or will run, 43 years old. But  —
 
SMR: 44 next month, Jorge.
 
JR: 44 next month. However, you have certain positions; for example, you’re against same-sex marriage, which is not what most young people believe in, according to the polls. Are you afraid of being portrayed in the media as an old young man, as some people in Latin America say?
 
SMR:
Well, I don’t believe that’s true. A significant percentage of Americans support my position on marriage between a woman and a man. I understand that there are discrepancies and a change of attitude, and I believe that if people want to change the laws about marriage in a democracy, in a republic, they can do so through their state legislatures. The states have always regulated marriage and can continue to do so. I believe that if the attitude in the country has changed, well, there is a democratic process through which they can make that change. What I don’t support is for the courts to determine this issue because I don’t think it’s up to the courts. I think it’s up to the political branch of each state to decide how it wants to regulate and how to define marriage laws.

 
JR:
And I’ll finish with a more personal question, Senator. We have had first ladies with very defined personalities: Michelle Obama, for example, or Hillary Clinton.Your wife Jeanette is Colombian-American. What would Jeanette be like as a first lady?
 
SMR: I think she would be excellent. She has a heart for issues, for example, the trafficking of human beings, which is a crisis today throughout the world. A person who is also interested in children’s issues and education. And also a person who, to me, is a great mother, a great wife, which is also important, right? Because having stability in the family is critical for being able to do the job well as a team. I would also consider her partof that team. But I believe that the country is going to love Jeanette when it gets to know her better.
 
JR: And that image that came out of you with your four children, to many,even if they were from the other political party, it reminded them of President John F.Kennedy.
 
SMR: Well, a figure from different times, undoubtedly. Former President Kennedy had a beautiful family as well. It’s more than an honor to know his daughter, who is now the ambassador to Japan. But, again, I believe it is important, that people want to know where you came from, what your family is like. And as we say, “My children are Colom-ban,” which is a combination of Colombian and Cuban, a very good
combination.
 
JR: Senator, thanks for speaking with us and I hope we can continue this conversation throughout the campaign. Thank you.
 
SMR: Thank you very much, Jorge.

The Cuban-American Dream IS the American Dream and GOP Corrupted It

before after

Before and After: How our cause for freedom has been corrupted. 

By Isabel Matos 

The Cuban-American Dream is the American dream and it has been corrupted by the GOPe. This clip connects a brief account of my family’s experience in exile and that of many families like us in the United States, with the push for a corrupt and politically motivated agenda: Amnesty. There is an important historical lesson that should alarm anyone who cares about the direction this country is headed because of the Republican party’s corruption. Obama wants to legalize illegals, but the GOPe is collaborating with communist amnesty activists and agitators. [Last summer Ros-Lehtinen and other members of the GOP earned La Raza’s praise for voting against a border bill that would have denied Obama the right to use federal funds to implement temporary amnesty.] I was asked to amplify on the last segment which I hope you enjoy. 

The next segment will be the appearance on Telemundo mentioned in the clip. It needs to be translated, so it will be published shortly. Thank you for viewing and sharing if you like it. A pathway to citizenship is code for amnesty (you know that) and it is a part of the communist plan to turn our system into a Democrat majority, or one-party system, and our GOPe is selling us out.

I Confronted Marco Rubio on Amnesty!

By Isabel Matos

I did it. I told Marco Rubio to his face what I thought of his push for amnesty and I have decided I will still be a hyphenated-American. Here’s why:

We fled Cuba for this?

I am a Cuban-American whose family fled Cuba because of Communism. My representatives in Florida are helping pass Obama’s Executive Amnesty which is a communist agenda.  Even though it was a rather exciting opportunity to meet my Senator, it was not fun given the circumstances I made a point to meet him under. He is supposed to represent us as Americans (and has a higher calling because of the cause of freedom for Cuba which is what our patriotism has been about for decades). As long as there is communism in Cuba, and as long as there is a dictatorship, there is still a fight against both, and not a push for an agenda, which he has the nerve to call an American Dream, that helps the left, our enemy.

This country is worth fighting for. We are a nation of laws under God, and with a constitution that protects its citizens. Those who push amnesty are lawbreakers. I have a short way of saying it: No borders. No country. We lost Cuba. And now you’re saying that this country is to be run the way the communists would like? I don’t think so. Marco Rubio is a Dreamer, not an Anti-Communist.  This was my brief exchange with him at the American Dreams Book Signing in Miami:

I am working on an amplification of the information given above. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Thank you for your encouragement. Please pass this video along to your friends to let them know Amnesty is a Communist Agenda, not just an unconstitutional and impeachable offense by the President.

Fully Fund Obama’s Executive Amnesty, Vote Date 2/27/2015, Vote Description

While considering HR 240, the FY 2015 Department of Homeland Security funding bill, in the Senate, newly elected Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) worked with Democrats and liberal Republicans to re-instate funding for Obama’s executive amnesty. Despite promises from Senate Republicans during the 2014 midterm campaign to stand up to President Obama, HR 240 would fully fund Obama’s fall 2014 unconstitutional executive amnesty. This vote is on final passage of HR 240 and is the last opportunity for Republican’s to stop funding for full implementation of President Obama’s illegal executive amnesty for the remainder of the year. -Senate vote Conservative Review – s62-114.2015

The rise of the right in Israel

Originally posted on eileenhart:

Since Prime Minister Netenyahu has fired Yair Lapid and Tzipi Livni for undermining Bibi, the recent poll numbers of the direction of where Israel is going suggest a major shift to the right is taking place.  Early polling has begun.  While Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni claim they are forming a unified center left coalition, Tzipi has not confirmed her position.

If such a merger becomes a reality, the Labor-Hatnua alliance would produce a combined 24 seats in the Knesset.  So they claim.  The consensus of recent polling data shows that Yesh Atid, Yisrael Beiteinu and Hatnua are bound to lose seats.  In reality, the concept of a successful alliance between Herzog and Livni is non-existent.

The fighting over the 2015 budget, taxes, defense and the economy are all on the table and suitable causes for each of the parties to debate upon.  However, there are members of the Knesset…

Palin to Louisianans: It’s Time for a Political Earthquake on Tuesday!

Rob Maness and Sarah Palin

By Isabel Matos

The link above takes you to a video and the statement she made to Real Clear Politics:

In her statement to RCP, Palin appealed to revel in the act of sticking her thumb in the eye of the Republican “machine” that has coalesced around Cassidy, as she predicted that Louisiana would be “the epicenter of a political earthquake on Tuesday.”

“The GOP machine should never have broken promises,” Palin wrote in the statement. “They got involved in an open Republican primary because they don’t respect the wisdom of the people. They chose their guy, and now as they work against the Maness momentum they’re scurrying around with desperate lies in an attempt to swallow him up.”

Like a gator in the swamp, Col. Rob Maness may have been seen as sharply lurking, but is now ready to pounce. It is time. This is the election that will be the shocker on Tuesday. 

The media bought into the false premise that this is a typical partisan establishment tiff between go-along-to-get-along politicians, Landrieu and Cassidy, and they’re missing the boat. Like that Louisiana alligator who can dominate the swamp, Maness is ready to be on top of D.C.’s food chain and devour the crony capitalism that runs wild in government. Status quo politicians like Landrieu had their chance to clean it up, but the establishment has partaken of the grub far too long, and voters know this. 

The GOP machine should never have broken promises. They got involved in an open Republican primary because they don’t respect the wisdom of the people. They chose their guy, and now as they work against the Maness momentum they’re scurrying around with desperate lies in an attempt to swallow him up. Polls show the “expert” Washington consultants bet on the wrong horse. Their anointed candidate has a long record of liberal votes, many of those votes were quite recent. A survey I saw reveals Cassidy voted with Obama on 35 key votes, and he’s even voted for Sen. Landrieu, and dissed Ronald Reagan! Look, it’s most telling that the political machine’s deputized one won’t even show up at debates to defend his record. No wonder he’s slithering down in the polls and this race is slipping away from the GOP. It’s because Louisiana voters know they deserve better than Cassidy’s M.O. 

I’ve been to Louisiana and seen the momentum — Col. Maness is the only conservative in the race and the clearest contrast and strongest pick to take on Mary Landrieu. His real life record of service, work ethic, positive policy ideas and commonsense resonates with voters. Here he’s fighting two powerful forces — two consummate politicians and both parties’ establishments — yet he’s the one showing real strength and keeping it positive. He’ll prevail because he’s fought and won tougher real life battles. 

The momentum IS on Col. Maness’ side. The Louisiana primary system is the freest in the country and the GOP oppresses that freedom by working against him with false scare tactics and calling this good man a “spoiler” or “vote splitter,” and their attempts to shoot him down are backfiring. Louisianans are realizing there is little difference in voting for the two politicians in this race, and they’re looking to make their vote count and actually make a difference. They’re seeing they have the choice to send Washington a message, and that’s why I’m confident Louisiana will be the epicenter of a political earthquake on Tuesday with their vote for Rob Maness.

Dear Tapp TV: How about a Little Courtesy or Smile for Your Subscribers?

Tapp Brothers

Jeff Gaspin and Jon Klein

By Isabel Matos

Congratulations to Jeff Gaspin and Jon Klein for their entrepreneurial achievements over the years and for being pioneers in Subscription Television:

Jeff Gaspin and Jon Klein first met 20 years ago while pioneering reality television at NBC and CBS, respectively. They were ahead of the curve then, and they’ve stayed there – helping to usher in the era of online video in the 2000’s, and now turning their sights to media’s next frontier: subscription television.

As the readers and viewers may know, I expressed my interest in promoting the Sarah Palin Channel in Spanish here and here. I did not just do SPC clips, however. I did other news items which took an eternity to create, translate, edit and publish. I stated clearly it was all exploratory in nature. This allowed for a margin of error -not in the translations- but the actual publication themselves. I had a concern from the start about copyright.  No one could guarantee one way or another if what I was doing would be okay. It was 50-50, in fact, so I went ahead and took a chance. Every time I posted a clip, people asked about the Sarah Palin Channel. I know I motivated at least a handful to sign up. But Tapp does not seem to want to generate more excitement. Celebrity is a magic bullet that will turn a profit for them without our help. Why get involved? It’s oh so time-consuming.

Tapp must not value my meager contributions for its promotional success either. After waiting one entire month for a reply (see the email I sent to Joanne at Tapp TV on September 29th at the bottom of this page), I decided to post the following on my timeline for the enthusiasts who supported my effort and idea:

Here’s a disappointing update on the Spanish clips. The video that received 713 views got pulled for copyright violation. I wrote the company Tapp who is not so nice customer service-wise and asked to make one exception since it was in part to help promote Sarah’s message and the channel. They did not even have the courtesy to reply, to which I say pthhh. Is a reply too much to ask for a year subscriber? It is a blessing in disguise because each one of those videos in Spanish were absolutely time consuming. 8 hours per minute is what I started out with since I was new to it and trimmed it down to 4 for the last ones. Not bad. I don’t care about the copyright strike either. I took a chance doing something awesome which I loved doing and hit a bump on the road. No big deal. I still know Spanish and I can still translate it’s just not feasible to come up with the script, the video, the translation and the editing.

Spanish translations can be done on just about anything. The possibilities are limitless. There are politicians and personalities in politics who would appreciate my services for free or occasional pay, but it will not be done for the most needed reasons.. to help Sarah Palin get her message out to voters who happen to be bilingual and who have been ignored by the leaders in the party because their message is stale, flat and wrong.  A warning on your part would have sufficed.  By the way, if you use my idea in the future, does that mean that I should be notified?

I’m not the only one disappointed in Tapp’s bad customer service by the way. I would not have taken the trouble to write the article if I was. It is known by now.

Dear Joanne,
Hello. My name is Isabel. I am a supporter of Governor Sarah Palin. I was inspired shortly after Sarah Palin Channel was launched, to do a voice-over of a clip that was pulled from YouTube today. I agreed to what was explained but just wanted to email you directly first to communicate why the video, titled: Sarah Palin’s Conservative Response to Elizabeth Warren’s Progressive Tenets, was done.
The video showcases the Governor’s debating skills. She lays out our conservative beliefs/tenets in a very attractive way. Bilingual voters who understand English but prefer watching and/or reading in Spanish make up a huge portion of the voting population. Millions are denied good information every day as filter/s of the Spanish-speaking media (written and on television) are just as bad if not worse than our liberal mainstream media. We know the story: they either do not report what is going on in American politics, are disparaging or dismissive of the conservative movement like the Tea Party or its leaders like Sarah Palin, who is still mocked with the tired old jokes. It’s there. Again, many are deprived of good information because of the language barrier and the filters described above.
As for the dubbing-it is all mine. I am asking permission for that particular video to stay up.  It was done in a promotional spirit both for her channel and as part of an outreach to those voters who happen to be legal immigrants who are bilingual but enjoy their news in Spanish. Again, the Spanish-speaking media does not do its job. This was a quality translation that did not cost anyone to have it done (which is fine). I will in the future not use SPC material if there is no other way to work this out -you have my word- but I am making a request for this particular video which has already been done and which took a lot of work to do, to be an exception, just in this case.
None of us get paid to do all that we do. We are tirelessly doing the best we can to get the message out and time is running out. My colleagues considered this would be acceptable (I did ask before going on my own..) as it was helpful in the promotion of the channel.
It would be helpful there was a validation of the translation work done, but I am aware now of the infringement issue. I wish this could be used to spread and promote SPC in a special way. If there is anything we can do to keep that video up I would appreciate it much.
Thank you.

Palin: Obama Incompetent on Ebola. Just Words. Heads Explode on Twitter

Sarah Palin Values Voters

By Isabel Matos

Sarah Palin was on Greta’s show earlier this evening. Shortly afterward, Politico published and tweeted “Sarah Palin: Obama inept on Ebola”.  From the article:

Palin’s comments come as both New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo have enacted 21-day quarantine policies in their states for medical workers returning from treating Ebola patients in West Africa. On Monday, Christie did allow quarantined nurse Kari Hickox to return to Maine.

While Christie has received some backlash for the policy, he continued to defend the decision on Monday.

Palin added that Washington is “trying to call the shots for these governors. There is a void of leadership here and the governors need to step up and step in.”

“We’re going to demand of our leadership in Washington and on the state level to get politics out of this and allow the medical community to tell us factually, what needs to be done,” Palin said.

Palin said she would talk to other governors about enacting a quarantine, if she was still serving that role in Alaska.

“And I betcha we would come to the conclusion that you can’t trust the Obama administration,” she said, adding that liberals are using “Saul Alinsky tactics” to capitalize on crisis.

For a more accurate portrayal of Chris Christie and Governor Cuomo’s motives behind their decisions, check this article out. If you have the chance, too, please go to the thread below and chime in to support Sarah. Just words. Ahem. You can almost see their heads exploding after seeing the article with Sarah Palin’s comments tweeted.
