Obama told Joe the Plumber,
“I think when you spread the wealth around it’s good for everybody.”
Little did we know back in 2008 when he said “spread the wealth around” he meant spread it around the world.
The science remains divided, but the Obama administration has gone all-in with endorsing man-made global warming, even funding efforts to help quell the potential for climate changing catastrophes–including terrorism–in Africa and South America.
The White House is seeking $469 million in tax dollars to dump into green programs on those continents, initiatives ranging from helping farmers preserve pastureland to helping women who can’t afford to move from hot and dry areas made worse by global warming.
The costly Global Climate Change Initiative, however, is expected to come under fire in the Republican-controlled House which has passed a fiscal 2013 budget that curbs overseas spending like the initiative which is handled through USAID. At a Center for American Progress symposium, former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle predicted a “hostile” reception by an “ideological” GOP.
While the spending is already going on, it might take decades for any country to see the global warming disaster that the administration is gearing up to control, according to a State Department official. That’s because rising temperatures and varying rainfall “are things that are slowly progressing over time, on a decades-long scale,” said Kit Batten, the global climate change coordinator at USAID. “You don’t have a sharp turning point,” she added at the symposium.
The administration agrees with a new report from CAP warning that global warming could lead to terrorism. How? It might change human migration in north-western Africa, likely opening up huge swaths of land to terror groups like al Qaeda. Also, “disenfranchised youth” would be push into terrorism, said the report.
The squandering of American wealth continues. It’s almost as if he hates this country.
