Newt in Iowa - He gets it.

I have had my intelligence insulted by the President and his team (particularly Susan Rice) tell me that there is a greater threat in Climate Change than in Terrorism for America.  

Susan Rice says that there are a number of threats in the world but they are not the existential threats that faced this nation in WWII. 

I listened to a Newt Gingrich speaking on the subject in Iowa and, as he has frequently in the past, he gets it.  I have always enjoyed Newt because he is first and foremost an historian.  And those who do not learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat the mistakes.  Please listen to Newt in his speech from the Iowa Freedom Summit in January.  The clip is approximately 17+ minutes long - which is longer than the normal demands that I put on your attention span.  But it is worth the listen and besides that, it is just plain important.

I will discuss where Hillary Clinton stands on this at a later date.  But she participated in this fraud and was complicit in this message as Secretary of State.  

Newt Gingrich is one of the most articulate speakers in the Republican party and, while he is always entertaining - this is a serious message.

      Climate Change (formerly called Global Warming) is a bunch of Chicken Little BS designed to cede power to the United Nations.

     Meanwhile,  radical Islam is out to destroy the world, and Obama cannot say anything against it, because it is his religion.

We need to take our lessons from history.  Newt is right about our time as Churchill was in the 1930's.

Sorry about that.

I am 63 years old, and know I am playing well into the back nine. That being the case I would happily give up one of the remaining holes if I could just wish the next two years gone.

Newt is in the minority and Rice is with the majority of scholars: According to a survey of 1,375 U.S. colleges and universities (international relations scholars) conducted by Foreign Policy magazine; the three most important foreign-policy issues facing the U.S. are climate change, armed conflict in the Middle East and failed or failing states, in that order.

Thanks, Karl.  I find it difficult to be convinced by statistics in chart form without comment on methodology or at least the opportunity to see the survey form.  It may be correct but I am not going to join the movement.  

It is interesting to see the difference between al-Qaeda and ISIS.  The distinction is significant and important to decisions about how to combat ISIS.  ISIS seeks to establish a Caliphate based upon the origins of Islam in the seventh century - which may be the key to their weakness.  If they can be confined to their current levels of territory, or reduced, their social failures may become apparent.  They are not merely trying to cause  anarchy by bloodthirsty methods, they have an obligation to produce some social benefits in the territory they have taken.  We'll see. 

You may want to read an article in the Atlantic here.  You will find it, at least, entertaining.  

I note with interest on TV this morning that there will be an assault on Mosul in May by Iraqi troops.  Strange strategy to go public now, but may work to our advantage.

Even if the climate change people are completely right, nothing is going to stop it.  No matter what we in the USA do, it will only get exponentially worse.  The populations of China, India, Africa, Asia, etc. are exploding.  In 50 years there will be billions more people on earth.  That means more cars, planes, smokestacks, etc. so get used to it.  No fancy lightbulb, electric car, or solar panels are going to slow down billions of more people from creating more carbon emissions.

Listening to Newt I can't get rid of this question: "Why is such a great country being governed by people that so many around consider unamerican?

People, who do not have the courage to even call things by its name? Refuse to call the invasion the invasion? And Muslim radicals call Muslim radicals.

People, who allow small fires to grow and hope they would be out before we get into the World War, even though er are sort of in it already?

Not only was he elected based on false promises, he still was reelected.

Why half of this country wants us to lose?

Rob Arnold - I believe you are very wrong. It reminds me what experts were screaming at the last quarter of the 19th century. Growing cities needed more horses for carriages, and the cities couldn't handle the horses waste, uncleanliness, smell... There were many predictions that the poop will take over the civilization... The whole point was to figure out how to deal with growing poop, and then the cars came and the problem of poo simply faded in the thin air.

I believe your prognosis is based on the same "more poop" idea, while tomorrow you wouldn't have vehicles with this type of waste. I mean qualitative new technologies would replace the ones that are so ineffective now. I think we are not too small for yet another few billion. We are too small for ISIS, Russia, Iran and North Korea. That's the problem. And, actually, this is the problem only because we have the administration, that puts dark glasses on so that they do not see the problem. Us, allowing them to run the country is a problem.

The poop? Nope...

Jon Zolsky I hope you are right and I am totally wrong. But I doubt it.  Technology will indeed improve but as long as the popultion grows like it has the carbon emissions are not going to decrease.

Ted, Newt is a very informed historian whom I respect. If we don't elect a president with strength who understands what is going on, the muslims will have sharia law in place in America in a short time. At that point our liberal friends will be squealing wanting the misery to stop. There will be no homosexuals anymore and everyone will have a prayer cloth and praying on their knees 6 times a day to the god of islam.
