PREPARING TO REGULATE ALL HUMAN ACTIVITY by G Edward Griffin (this is an audio publication)

https://youtu.be/Gj9xD4bj2h4

Excerpts: “Despite the mainstream media, educational establishment, entertainment industry, governments, global powers, and scientific researchers seeming to close ranks claiming “97% consensus” on human-caused global warming, glaring conflicts of interest indicate massive collusion pointed at stripping away our individual liberties and our national sovereignty, with the ultimate objective of regulating ALL HUMAN ACTIVITY.”


http://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/usa-buybacks-cannibalized/

Excerpts: Led by agenda-setting New York State and radical left-winger Al Gore the progressive persecution of climate change skeptics by the states is underway. Top law enforcement officers in several states are joining with the Chicken Littles of green activism to weaponize the scientifically dubious argument that human activity is not only changing the earth’s climate but that unprecedented world catastrophe awaits unless draconian, economy-killing carbon emission controls are imposed more or less immediately. The litigation offensive has nothing to do with justice. It is aimed at forcing those few remaining holdouts in the business community who stubbornly cling to science to confess their thought crimes and submit to the know-nothing Left’s climate superstitions. It is part of modern-day environmentalism’s ongoing assault on knowledge, human progress, markets, and the rule of law. Repent and embrace the true green faith or else you’ll be investigated and denounced as a climate criminal, is the message of “Inspector Gotcha,” New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman.

Excerpts: The alarmists’ predictions of global warming resulting from increased CO2 in the atmosphere have failed to come true. In scientific terms, that is the end of the story. A theory that is refuted by observation is wrong. But since billions of dollars in government money are flowing into the alarmists’ coffers, they endlessly try to make excuses for their theory’s failure, even as they cover up that failure by retroactively altering temperature records. This is the greatest scandal in the history of science, in my opinion.


http://mobile.wnd.com/2015/11/u-n-tribunal-to-judge-u-s-for-climate-debt/

Excerpts: “Global tyranny: at the upcoming United Nations Climate Summit in Paris, participating nations have prepared a treaty that would create an ‘International Tribunal of Climate Justice’ giving Third World countries the power to haul the U.S. into a global court with enforcement powers… The purpose of this Agreement (treaty) is to enhance the full, effective and sustained implementation of the Convention and to strengthen and support the global response to the urgent threat of climate change by further addressing its causes and minimizing its adverse effects. Parties recognize based on the latest scientific knowledge that deep cuts in global greenhouse gas emissions [anthropogenic climate forcers] and enhanced actions to address climate change and its adverse effects are urgently required. An International Tribunal of Climate Justice as a compliance mechanism is hereby established to address cases of non-compliance of the commitments of developed country Parties on mitigation, adaptation, finance, technology development, transfer and transparency of action and support, including through the development of an indicative list of consequences, taking into account the cause, type, degree and frequency of non-compliance.”

Excerpts: “The latest moves to shut old coal-fired plants deemed uneconomic — the most recent, Eggborough, announced just two weeks ago — could trigger electricity price spikes and put UK businesses with interruptible contracts at greater risk of supply curbs.”


http://www.cnsnews.com/commentary/h-sterling-burnett/obama-delivers-deathblow-coal-clean-power-plan

Excerpts: “Obama’s misguided focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions in order to prevent a completely theoretical anthropogenic climate change catastrophe is destroying U.S. jobs, threatening electric power reliability and affordability, and doing absolutely nothing to prevent climate change. By the administration’s own estimates, the Clean Power Plan would reduce future global temperature by less than a hundredth of a degree, an amount thermometers can’t even measure. Obama’s climate obsession comes at a high price for electric power ratepayers. Since Obama ascended to the presidency, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) reports coal’s share of the nation’s electric supply fell from 48 percent in 2007 to 39 percent in 2014. Because coal is a low-cost source of electricity, electric power prices have risen 15 percent since Obama became president, despite historically low inflation.”


http://cnsnews.com/news/article/kathleen-brown/nobel-prize-winning-physicist-obama-dead-wrong-global-warming-0

Excerpts: “’Everything is going to hell. But the facts are that in the last 100 years we have measured the temperature, it has gone up 0.8 degrees and everything in the world has gotten better…We live better, we have better work, better health, better everything — but if we go [up] another 0.8 degrees, we’re gonna die, I guess,’ he said sarcastically. Giaever also does not perceive a threat in rising carbon dioxide (CO2) levels, noting that ‘if you have more CO2 the plant grows faster…It’s a wonderful thing, but they don’t talk about that in Nature magazine,’ which he accused of wanting to ‘cash in on the [global warming] fad.’”


Excerpts: “Unable to address Texas senator Ted Cruz’s questions about “the Pause” — the apparent global-warming standstill, now almost 19 years long, …”

Excerpts: “Alarmist scientists have gone so far as to urge the Obama administration to prosecute criminally scientists who disagree with them”

Germany waters down climate protection plan

Excerpts: Germany has abandoned plans to set out a timetable to exit coal-fired power production and scrapped C02 emissions reduction goals for individual sectors, according to the latest draft of an environment ministry document seen by Reuters on Wednesday.  An earlier version of the draft document that was leaked in May had suggested that Germany should phase out coal-fired power production “well before 2050” as part of a package of measures to help Berlin achieve its climate goals.  The new version, which was revised following consultation with the economy and energy ministry, has also deleted specific concrete C02 emissions savings targets for the energy, industry, transport and agriculture sectors.

Excerpt: Why are we seeing unnaturally stable bond yields and prices despite the spike in dumping of US Treasuries by the world’s central banks? Have the rules of supply and demand been rendered obsolete?


http://freakonomics.com/2015/12/03/ben-bernanke-gives-himself-a-grade-a-new-freakonomics-radio-podcast/

Podcast interview excerpts: DUBNER: “Anyone who spends time on YouTube and on, particularly Libertarian or right-wing quadrants of YouTube, will find statements, videos of you, compilations of conversations you had, whether in the media or elsewhere, that as modulated as they may have been in retrospect appear, kind of monstrously wrong. What do you think? What do you say when you hear that statement of yours from 2005?”BERNANKE: “Well, it was partly the result of the fact that I was representing the administration. And you don’t really want to go out and say, ‘Run for the hills,’ right?”

Excerpt: “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, …”


Excerpt: The popular explanation — originating with then-Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and promoted relentlessly by the media — for why the $700 billion TARP bailout had to be passed is destroyed with an 8-minute film.


Summary: Who is really to blame for market inefficiencies and distortions? The current BoE boss, Mark Carney, who has been in favor of banning cash and is now considering stepping up central bank management of markets, says “the markets themselves!” Enough to make you think twice, since central bankers talk with each other and often lean toward group think.

The IRS Scandal, Day 1333:  Republicans Weasel Out Of Impeaching IRS Commissioner John Koskinen by Paul L. Caron

Excerpts: “Conservatives had pushed for impeaching Mr. Koskinen, saying he cannot be allowed to get away with having misled Congress on the investigation into the IRS’s tea party targeting.  But GOP leaders, eager to clean up business and shut down for the year, ahead of a busy 2017, led the push to shunt the impeachment aside. Joined by Democrats, the House voted 342-72 to send the debate back to the Judiciary Committee.”


Excerpts: President Obama’s new Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) regulation is arguably the most radical, transformative, and potentially controversial initiative that his administration has undertaken to date. Maybe that’s why the mainstream press barely covers it. Now, the Obama administration’s AFFH policy has morphed from “mere” massive regulatory overreach into a bald attempt to quash the freedom of speech of its political opponents. This is truly Orwellian stuff, a frightening demonstration of how the expansionist regulatory state ultimately chokes off political speech itself.

Excerpts: Transgenderism is ultimately about central planning and centralized government, not about protecting the transgender individuals it is currently exploiting for that purpose. Transgenderism is the perfect vehicle to enhance and grow the power of the state.

Excerpts: “The Obama administration’s Housing & Urban Development department is embarking on a social engineering experiment that wipes out one of the fundamental functions of local government – making neighborhood zoning decisions… Specifically, Mr. Obama’s AFFH rule seeks to radically reinvent local zoning laws in the United States – reengineering America neighborhoods based on racial and ethnic quotas… If this sounds Constitutionally-suspect, it should.”

Excerpts: “President Obama proposed 2,224 new regulations just before Thanksgiving, 144 of which are each expected to cost Americans $100 million or more. The regulations span the full scope of American life, ranging from labeling requirements for pet food, new test procedures for battery chargers, mandated paid sick leave for contractors, and automatic speed limiters for trucks to a dozen new rules limiting energy use (and increasing the price) of everything from furnaces and dishwashers to dehumidifiers.”

Excerpts: “The number and cost of government regulations continued to climb in 2014, intensifying Washington’s control over the economy and Americans’ lives. The addition of 27 new major rules pushed the tally for the Obama Administration’s first six years to 184, with scores of other rules in the pipeline. The cost of just these 184 rules is estimated by regulators to be nearly $80 billion annually, although the actual cost of this massive expansion of the administrative state is obscured by the large number of rules for which costs have not been fully quantified. Absent substantial reform, economic growth and individual freedom will continue to suffer. This ninth installment in the ongoing series of “Red Tape Rising” reports measuring trends in rulemaking activity details the enormous regulatory costs under the Obama Administration.”

Excerpts: “The Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan is expected to dramatically affect how Americans get their power. This sort of sweeping policy change should occur through the legislative process, during which amendments to proposed laws are tracked and debated.”

Excerpts: Newly uncovered internal memos reveal the Obama administration knowingly exaggerated charges of racial discrimination in probes of Ally Bank and other defendants in the $900 billion car-lending business as part of a “racial justice” campaign that’s looking more like a massive government extortion and shakedown operation… A confidential 23-page internal report detailing CFPB’s strategy for going after lenders shows why these companies are forking over millions of dollars in restitution and fines to the government despite denying any wrongdoing.

http://nypost.com/2016/02/02/obamas-diversity-diktat-is-a-giant-gift-to-lawyers/.
Excerpts: Claiming women aren’t getting paid enough, President Obama wants to make it easier to accuse employers of gender discrimination and hit them with class-action lawsuits. A new regulation proposed on Friday will require all employers with 100 or more workers to report how much their workforce is paid, broken down by race and gender. The rule, slated to go into effect in September 2017, will cause headaches for employers and anyone — man or woman — who works hard and expects to get ahead based on merit. The winners are federal bean counters, class-action lawyers and the Democratic Party, which is playing up the gender “wage gap” as usual during this election year. Never mind that the gap is largely fiction. Or that Uncle Sam’s social engineers are foisting their cookie-cutter vision of a politically correct workplace on employers, denying them the freedom to hire and promote based on merit.

Excerpts: Lyndon’s case came to the nation’s attention after the IRS seized his entire bank account in July 2014 using civil forfeiture for the innocent act of depositing his hard-earned money in the bank in amounts under $10,000. The Institute for Justice took Lyndon’s case to clear his name and get back his property, and in June 2015, the government finally returned Lyndon’s money. In returning Lyndon’s money, however, the government sought to avoid its obligation under federal law to pay Lyndon’s attorneys’ fees, costs, and interest.

Excerpts: [I]f we don’t want the November election to be between two post-constitutionalists, where we vote simply on which Duce will rule over us for the next four years, we need to persuade first GOP primary voters, then the broader electorate, why the preservation of our republican norms is vital to America’s liberty, independence, and prosperity. We can’t do that simply by pointing out what a nitwit Trump is.This coming year will help clarify whether the American people actually still want a republic – whether we are still fit for self-government. Or whether things have changed so much that a critical mass of our countrymen will respond as Britannicus did in I, Claudius, when his father laid out his plan to restore the Roman Republic: “I don’t believe in the Republic. No one believes in the Republic anymore. No one does except you. You’re old, Father, and out of touch.”

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/12/donald-trump-constitution-opinion-213458#ixzz3vF0mSTjz
Excerpts: No one will ever mistake Donald Trump for a student of James Madison.The real-estate mogul has demonstrated about as much familiarity with the U.S. Constitution as with the Bible, which is to say, none. Trump has captivated a share of the tea party with a style of politics utterly alien to the Constitution. In the year of Trump, the right is experiencing a post-constitutional moment. Trump exists in a plane where there isn’t a Congress or a Constitution. There are no trade-offs or limits. There is only his will and his team of experts who will figure out how to do whatever he wants to do, no matter how seemingly impossible.You can be forgiven for thinking that in Trump’s world, constitutional niceties—indeed any constraints whatsoever—are for losers. It’s only strength that matters. It shouldn’t be a surprise that he expresses admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin, a “powerful leader” who is “highly respected within his own country and beyond.”

http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2015/10/do_hillarys_lies_matter.html

Excerpts: “We learned that Lois Lerner, the Stasi-like figure in the IRS who deliberately targeted Obama’s opponents in the last election, will go scott free of criminal prosecution. This is the act of a lawless Administration. Considering all we’ve already seen on their watch, from the Fast and Furious murders to Benghazi and Hillary Clinton’s abuse of top secret emails — the FBI’s closing of their investigation is par for course in the Obama Administration, where criminals walk free and honest Americans fear their government.”

http://capitalismmagazine.com/2015/10/death-of-a-patriot
Excerpts: “His crusade to force the (US) government to obey the law earned him three prison sentences, the final one being a fourteen-year sentence that he began serving ten years ago, at the age of 77. He passed away on Oct. 16th, 2015 at the age of 87, a political prisoner, legally blind and shackled to a hospital bed in a guarded room in intensive care.”
