A surprising admission on Rudd from the left

Posted by – 23 November, 2008

This admission¬†on ABC’s Insiders, last Sunday, by left-wing journalist Annabel Crabb about Rudd’s first year in power:

…result free, trouble free. Is that a good outcome?

Rudd is following the classic Public Service philosophy for promotion. Don’t do anything good, don’t do anything bad, just don’t do anything.

Rudd: pay more or die!

Posted by – 9 July, 2008

Andrew Bolt from the Herald Sun has written an article against the climate change gods and the recent Ross Garnaut report. The article has received global attention and acclaim from The Drudge report and Rush Limbaugh, the most popular radio personality in the world. Here are some brief excerpts:

Here is Prime Minister Kevin Rudd yesterday, with his own apocalyptic vision: “If we do not begin reducing the nation’s levels of carbon pollution, Australia’s economy will face more frequent and severe droughts, less water, reduced food production and devastation of areas such as the Great Barrier Reef and Kakadu wetlands.”

And here is a senior Sydney Morning Herald journalist aghast at the horrors described in the report on global warming released on Friday by Rudd’s guru, Professor Ross Garnaut: “Australians must pay more for petrol, food and energy or ultimately face a rising death toll . . .”

Wow. Pay more for food or die. Is that Rudd’s next campaign slogan?

Rudd and Garnaut want to scare you into backing their plan to force people who produce everything from petrol to coal-fired electricity, from steel to soft drinks, to pay for licences to emit carbon dioxide — the gas they think is heating the world to hell.

The cost of those licences, totalling in the billions, will then be passed on to you through higher bills for petrol, power, food, housing, air travel and anything else that uses lots of gassy power. In some countries they’re even planning to tax farting cows, so there’s no end to the ways you can be stung.

Rudd hopes this pain will make you switch to expensive but less gassy alternatives, and — hey presto — the world’s temperature will then fall, just like it’s actually done since the day Al Gore released An Inconvenient Truth.

The article went on to describe the advent of a psychological disorder that some people are suffering because of climate change propaganda. The article also highlighted how China and India are now publicly ignoring calls to reduce emissions, and because of this, any attempt by Australia to cap carbon emissions will be pointless.

I cannot overstate how big this article is. Limbaugh basically read the entire article out to his nearly 20 million listeners and millions would have seen the article on The Drudge Report. Limbaugh on Bolt’s article:

Meanwhile, while all this is going on, while the Australian government is telling its citizens, “Pay more or die,” which is about what we’re being told here, in fact, this poor kid in Australia thinks if he drinks the world’s going to die so he’s killing himself by not drinking. They had to put him in a psycho ward. Your kid could be next, folks. Now, in China, the ChiComs released their own global warming strategy a year ago, its own Garnaut report — this is Rudd’s guru in Australia — “which bluntly refused to cut its total emissions. Said Ma Kai, head of China’s powerful State Council: ‘China does not commit to any quantified emissions-reduction commitments … our efforts to fight climate change must not come at the expense of economic growth.'” The ChiComs, of all people, get it! The ChiComs!

If anybody ought to be leading the charge on this, it would be socialist communists, but the ChiComs know full well the disaster that awaits anybody who buys into the delusion and the requirements to fulfill the delusion as advanced by Algore. Mr. Bolt writes, “In fact, we had to get used to more gas from China, not less: ‘It is quite inevitable that during this (industrialisation) stage, China’s energy consumption and CO2 emissions will be quite high.'” Damn straight. They’re growing. They’re going to expand. Here’s another instance. India. India has said that it will not stop its per capita emissions from growing “until they match those of countries such as the US.”

A big dittos!
