Second Coming belongs to God alone

In the Bible, we read about the twelve disciples working tirelessly to spread the Gospel to the ancient cities and countries of their time. All twelve were sinners and were saved by God’s grace.

Jesus Christ, who is the son of God, died for us all so that we could be forgiven of our sins. “We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

A number of sects of Islam believe in a mythical twelfth Imam. It is interesting to contrast the gospel with an obvious mere imitation. The Islamic twelfth Imam almost sounds like the Second Coming of Christ.

It is rather strange to note that our visiting jihadist Ahmadinejad, promotes the belief in an Imam who will “come again” to this earth. Yes, this is same man who blasted Israel, and denied the existence of Iranian homosexuals as he spoke to applauding, cheering students at the liberal Columbia University campus.

Columbia President Lee Bollinger’s scathing speech rang extremely hollow. He was insensitive to the feelings of Americans who are serving their country and those who support them. I imagine they were most offended knowing that President Ahmadinejad is the same man responsible for many troop deaths in Iraq. A terrorist should have never been invited to speak at the university.

“I suggest that we have to take Ahmadinejad seriously. I believe that he means what he says, and if given the opportunity will try to carry out his murderous plans. I furthermore suggest that we need to look around for the moral courage (the ability to make a stand on principle) to censure and punish those who call for the killing of Jews and the destruction of Israel. Have we no memory? Have we no courage?” (source) John W. Swails III, Ph.D. Chair and Associate Professor of History, Department of History, Humanities, and Government, Oral Roberts University.

Sadly, President Ahmadinejad spreads another type of deceit concerning a particular “hidden Imam.” Let us look closely at the comparison of a twelfth Imam to the Second Coming of Christ, which has been part of the absolute truth since the Holy Scripture were written.
Excerpts from Ashbrook Center for Public Affairs at Ashland University:

    “Iran’s President and the Politics of the Twelfth Imam”
    By: John von Heyking
    “Observers of Iran have been puzzling over Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s actions lately. A populist, but not terribly popular, president, he raised the ire of the West and some of his domestic rivals when he recently proclaimed Israel should be ‘wiped off the map.’ Iran’s nuclear ambitions are well-known. However, Western observers have paid less attention to the political and religious ideology behind some of Ahmadinejad’s actions, which he has expressed in recent speeches that have had messianic overtones and are deeply troublesome.
    “In a region known for bombastic (pardon the pun) politicians, it’s unclear how to understand the direction Iran is moving. This is due in part to its closed decision-making process. Writing recently in the New York Review of Books, Timothy Garton Ash draws several comparisons between Iran and the former Communist bloc. Interpreting the intentions of the Iranian leadership resembles Kremlinology with its ‘reading the tea leaves’ methodology of trying to interpret events with the slimmest of evidence. Understanding Iran is further complicated by the fact that it lacks a unitary structure, or sovereign that makes decisions. Iran in fact has two governments: its formal democratic government run by Ahmadinejad and a religious-ideological command structure headed by the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Mediating these two power structures is the Expediency Council, headed by former president Hashemi Rafsanjani, (whom Ahmadinejad defeated in the recent presidential election) who has also recently been in the news accusing Ahmadinejad of destroying the Iranian Revolution. Power is extremely decentralized in Iran, with a myriad of patrons and cronies vying for control over its institutions, leading Ash to conclude: ‘No wonder Iranian political scientists reach for terms like ‘polyarchy,’ ‘elective oligarchy,’ ‘semi-democracy,’ or ‘neopatrimonialism.’” Ahmadinejad’s bellicose speeches must be understood in light of his ambitions amidst the faultlines of Iranian domestic politics, but they may have ominous implications for the rest of us.
    “In a speech on November 16th, Ahmadinejad spoke of his belief in the return of the Twelfth Imam. One of the differences between Sunni and Shi’ite Islam is that the latter, who dominate Iran and form the majority in Iraq, believe that Allah shielded or hid Muhammad al-Mahdi as the Twelfth Imam until the end of time. Shi’ites expect the Twelfth Imam, which Jews and Christians would recognize as a messianic figure, to return to save the world when it had descended into chaos.” Full Article

The blessed hope is contained within the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. It is the columniation of our salvation. Our God is in control of all things. He is the true and faithful servant. He keeps His promises as well as the prophecies found in His Word. There is belief in this truth because there is truth in the belief.

The first advent began with His first coming. Jesus came to earth as a baby in a manger in Bethlehem. Jesus fulfilled the prophecies of the Messiah during His birth, life, ministry, death, and resurrection.

The Second Coming of Christ will be the fulfillment of the remaining prophecies. In His first coming, Jesus was the suffering servant. In His Second Coming, Jesus will be the conquering King.
In His first coming, Jesus arrived humbly. In His Second Coming, Jesus will arrive with all the angels of Heaven at His side.

After Jesus ascended into Heaven, the angels spoke clearly to the apostles: “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.” (Acts 1:11) “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” (John 14:1)

In the book of Matthew (24:30) it declares, “At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn.”

They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. Titus 2:13 describes the Second Coming as a “glorious appearing.” All eyes shall see Him.” (Isaiah 33:17)

The Second Coming of Jesus is spoken of with immense passion and preciseness. In the book of Revelation his coming is described: Rev. 9:11-16 “And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True. And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “King of kings, and Lord of Lords.”

This very act will be the beginnings of a newly created Earth and the heavens.

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” (Matthew 24:35). The happy outcome will mark the ending of the controversy between good and evil.

“Sin and sinners are no more. The entire universe is clean. One pulse of harmony and gladness beats through the vast creation. From Him who created all, flow life and light and gladness, throughout the realms of illimitable space. “From the minutest atom to the greatest world, all things, animate and inanimate, in their unshadowed beauty and perfect joy, declare that God is love.” (source) The Great Controversy By E.G. White

The results of this Imam’s coming (in theory) will be death by cruel torture and subjugation of all infidels. Threads of truth mixed in with these lies is the basis of all false teachings, including counterfeit belief systems. How does one escape being deceived? Study the genuine article, the Bible. Federal agents don’t learn to spot counterfeit money by studying the counterfeit bills.The same applies to religion.

To think we are fighting a war on terror with a political and religious ideology that wills to physically force its beliefs on mankind is unthinkable to most Americans and the free world. We best see what is happening about us. An Islamic Caliphate is soon to come to the entire world, possibly in our lifetime. It is with most urgency that we win the War on Terror as well as the hearts and minds of the world with a faith that is about love and redemption.

The Second Coming belongs to God alone and not to a twelfth Imam. God is a gentleman who knocks at the door of man’s hearts. Learn of Him and the truth shall set you free. We are living in days where we need to consider our spirituality. We are not promised our tomorrows. In Christ we are promised an eternity of love with Him. He paid the ultimate price. Take the free gift and smile. He is coming again. However, “no man knows the day or the hour.” (Matthew 24:36) Make today the day of your salvation; invite Him into your heart.

Wind-Driven Delusions

“Wind-Power surge” was the headline of an article by Newhouse News Service reporter, Gail Kinsey Hill. “Demand for turbines generates higher prices” was the sub-title and it noted that, “The supply shortage comes as New Jersey officials have begun planning a windmill farm off the South Jersey coast.”

Now it’s worth keeping in mind that New Jersey is one of the East Coast States that is on record as not wanting to permit any drilling for oil or natural gas on its part of the continental shelf, presumably because the sight of any rigs might dampen property values or pose a hazard to the “pristine” environment. So, let’s see, a few oilrigs are bad, but miles of wind turbines are good.

Each one of the 1.5-megawatt turbines, the most popular size, will cost $2.5 million, including all turbine components and installation. How will utilities pay for them? They will “recover the expense through rate increases, but they first must ask state regulators for permission.”

Every megawatt of wind capacity “powers roughly 250 homes annually,” said the article, but failed to mention that only occurs when the wind is blowing. When it is not blowing, the electricity will have to be supplied by conventional means of generating electricity. To put it another way, no wind, no power, no really compelling reason to bother building a wind farm.

If you’re expecting the mainstream media to tell you the truth about wind power, I will be happy to come by and read some fairy tales to you.

Wind farms are one of those trendy, environmental fairy tales about “alternative” energy sources that will save us all from burning coal to provide electricity because, according the Great Big Book of Environmentally Bad Things, it’s “a fossil fuel” and it “pollutes.”

Okay, let’s build nuclear facilities. After decades of opposing nuclear energy the Greens have apparently decided it’s okay, but first we have to do one million environmental studies before actually building a new one.

There are a few, teeny-weeny problems with wind farms. First of all, from a purely aesthetic standpoint they are unsightly. There is nothing pretty or inspiring about wind farms.

A proposed wind farm, Cape Wind, slated to cover 24 square miles of federally controlled waters in Nantucket Sound has found some powerful opponents such as Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy who lives on the Cape. Loath as I am to agree with anything Teddy says, he’s right when he says the wind farm will destroy some of the most beautiful ocean vistas on the East Coast, not to mention being a danger to sea and air vessels. Even presidential candidate and former Governor, Mitt Romney, opposes this project.

Bird lovers hate wind farms. Back in April when the issue of federal tax credits for wind energy was all the rage, the American Bird Conservancy, quoted the National Wind Coordinating Committee whose own estimates reveal that, “this growing alternative energy source is killing between 30,000 to 60,000 birds a year.”

Yikes! “At the current mortality rate and growth rate of the wind industry,” said the bird folks “by 2030 a projected 900,000 to1.8 million birds would be killed per year by wind turbines, unless protective measures are implemented.” Considering how Greens go nuts over ordinary hunting and fishing, their indifference to this bird Holocaust is fairly astonishing.

Then there’s the problem with the way wind farms play havoc with radar that is used for commercial flight control and by the military as well. It turns out that, if you plant a wind farm anywhere within the proximity of an airfield, it “clutters” the signals needed to guide your flight from Phoenix to a safe landing. This is why the siting of wind farms is subject to Federal Aviation Agency approval.

Wind farms are quite possibly the dumbest way possible to produce electricity. Coal, uranium, natural gas, and hydro currently produces 97% of all the electricity used in the United States. Of these energy sources, coal accounts for half of all the electricity generated. It’s abundant and it’s cheap. Apparently that’s a bad thing.

Suffice it to say that to replace one traditional 1,000-magawatt power plant you need a lot of wind turbines that, in turn, take up a lot of space whether on land or at sea.

Picture in your mind that you’re driving along the shoreline of New Jersey, glancing over at the Atlantic Ocean…and seeing hundreds of wind turbines. These towers can stand over 400 feet into the air, have gigantic blades that make them into bird Cuisinarts, and, in the winter, they throw off big chunks of ice. In addition, the blades have been known to come loose. Lightning has a particular affinity for wind towers. Keeping a respectful distance is a good idea.

With wind power advocates pushing for more “renewable energy” by the year 2020, the energy projected would require between 50,000 and 100,000 towers, occupying some 7,500 to more than 10,000 square miles. That’s an area comparable to the entire state of Vermont.

So the “wind-power surge” may not be such a wonderful thing in either the short or long run. It is, like so many other strange environmental ideas, a fantasy, a delusion that sounds rational right up to the moment you begin to look at it closely. When you do that, the vision of hundreds of wind towers producing miniscule amounts of electricity—and only when the wind is blowing—seems, well, nuts!

America can’t afford George Soros

Mr. George Soros is one contemptible man, in my personal opinion. He is not America’s friend. However, the far left Democrats running for the presidency as well as their party are beholden to him. That fact should be looked upon as upsetting and very worrisome.

Indeed, you are judged by the people you associate with. Soros is manipulative. He is one of many reasons that the Democrat Party is smug and arrogantly unruly. The media merely reflects his image.

In a December 9th 2004 e-mail signed by ‘Eli Pariser, Justin Ruben, and the whole MoveOn PAC team,’ the Soros front group stated: ‘In the last year, grassroots contributors like us gave more than $300 million to the Kerry campaign and the DNC, and proved that the Party doesn’t need corporate cash to be competitive. Now it’s our Party: we bought it, we own it, and we’re going to take it back ” ( source )

George Soros spends billions of dollars in his attempts to overthrow America’s politics and diminish the Judeo-Christian beliefs that our country was founded upon. (source) He used his big bucks to try and denigrate General Petraeus who is a real American patriot.

Mr.Green Backs used his money to help pay for MoveOn.org’s ad. He also gives money to well known far left political blogs all over the Internet. These obnoxious sites sprung up like ugly thorny weeds when George W. Bush put his hat in the political ring to run for the presidency many years ago.

George Soros distorted philosophies are spewed throughout leftist bomb throwing and vitiated blogs. The lofty elitists who contribute to them use anti- American verbiage and can’t seen to write a paragraph without using gutter language, including the “F” word and visuals throughout these far left mazes of ranting anger.

Soros appears to be a terrorist sympathizer as so many secular progressives are. One example is Columbia University. They would rather embrace terrorist leader President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad than the Minutemen, who were brutally attacked when trying to speak to the student body. So much for “free speech.”

Fact from the Internal Revenue Service: Soros’s foundation, the Open Society Institute, contributed $20,000 in September 2002 to the Lynne Stewart Defense Committee. (source ) Stewart was found guilty of giving aid to Islamic terrorists.

Is this a man that American citizens want tampering with our business? He definitely has too much to do with the Democrat Party, organizations and websites that are working against our country’s best interest.

Excerpts from INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY:

“George Soros: The Man, The Mind And The Money Behind MoveOn”

“Sep. 20, 2007 (Investor’s Business Daily delivered by Newstex) —

“The Left: The smear ad published against Gen. Petraeus has drawn attention to its sponsor,

“MoveOn.org. But the fingerprints of the group’s chief financial backer, George Soros, were all over it. Who is this man and what is he up to?

“To read Soros’ own spun story, he’s a Jewish survivor of Nazi-occupied Hungary who pulled himself up by his bootstraps, studied economics in England, became a U.S. citizen in 1961 and made a multibillion-dollar fortune as a financier who pioneered hedge funds.

“Over the years, Soros has written books giving his philosophical take on global affairs and acquired a reputation as something of a “stateless statesman.” He calls himself a philanthropist and has given away $5 billion of his now $8.5 billion fortune through his principal vehicle, the Open Society Institute. The institute, in turn, has passed cash on to far more radical groups, such as MoveOn.org.

“But Soros is no hands-off donor. According to the Open Society Institute’s Website: ‘Despite the breadth of his endeavors, Soros is personally involved in planning and implementing many of the foundation network’s projects. ‘ ”

“Soros says he gives away about $400 million annually.

“It’s an admirable picture, but ‘philanthropy’ may be the wrong word. Unlike, say, Bill Gates, who really does put the bulk of his charity into helping the world’s poor through medical services, Soros tends to fund pressure groups and foundations he misleadingly characterizes as promoting ‘civil society’ and ‘democracy. ‘

“The image gives him moral cover to manipulate democracies whose voter verdicts he opposes.

“The first groups Soros supported back in the 1980s did play a role in undercutting the rickety communist regimes of Eastern Europe. But his motives seemed less than idealistic. All Soros groups tend to tear down tyrannies rather than build up democracies.” Full Article

Hearken To The Words of a Sunni governor: Our Tomorrow Starts Today

Given what President Bush said when he spoke to the American citizenry, the response that followed from the National Democrat Party should not have been surprising. Their specialty is a constant barrage of investigative congressional hearings and assorted faultfinding committees. One wonders if anything good can come from the mouth of Speaker Nancy Pelosi. http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2007/09/20070913-2.wm.v.html )

A courageous man named General David Petraeus presented a truthful report to the Congress about progress of the U.S. troop surge in

Iraq. Unfortunately, the Democrat Party decided to use it as an opportunity not to glean knowledge, but to besmirch a hero. To do so, they used the arm of an Internet-based political group that was founded under the Clinton administration.MoveOn.org took out a scandalous ad in the New York Times: “General Petraeus or General Betray Us?” Are you surprised more by the childish word-play or the antagonism itself? Why this level of despite on the part of the far Left? Why must their feelings for their country, the troops, and our Commander-in-Chief rise to the level of hate? https://pol.moveon.org/petraeus.html )

The eyes of many are beginning to open; in the terror war, it is not unreasonable to view the Democrat Party as America’s “other” enemy. When folks hear the very same rhetoric the far Left uses spewing out of Osama bin Laden’s profane mouth, they can’t help but see the threat they also pose. A house divided instills boldness within the Jihadist’s mind. “We must sacrifice our lives to attack the enemy,” according to bin Laden. Similarly, it seems the Democrats are willing to sacrifice the country.It is painfully obvious that terrorists would rather have a weak Democrat in the White House than a man such a President Bush, who has never waffled about the War on Terror. The opposition party has no concern that it may be weakening us by fomenting a dangerous division amongst the American people during a time of war. There truly is no rationality for their traitorous ways.

The Leftist media perpetuates and facilitates those who are of a like mindset. The days of reporting news to inform the American public are long gone. The new leaders of the once-great party of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Grover Cleveland and John Fitzgerald Kennedy have become whores for political power who are shameless about the way they achieve it.

Emanating from a strident and arrogant position, we’ve heard contention, of strife and a disparaging partisanship that has severely compromised our nation. To think that the far Left gangsters of the Democrat party envision themselves as leaders of our country is unnerving and frightening. If you have not familiarized yourself with a blog named the Daily

Kos: State of the Nation, you must. It belongs to the extremists that the Democrat Party is beholden to. Blue Dog Democrats no longer have a voice within their own party. http://www.dailykos.com/ )

“The epicenter of Democratic politics can be found in downtown Chicago, as 1,500 activists, the entire Congressional leadership, and all but one of the party’s presidential candidates converge at the Yearly Kos convention. The event is an outgrowth of the influential political blog the Daily Kos, a site started only five years ago by Army veteran Markos Moulitsas Zuniga. The presence of the Democratic establishment at the event is yet another sign of the centrality of the internet and its grassroots activists, the ‘netroots,’ to the Democratic Party. Some, however, are saying it is an indication that the Democratic Party is tilting further and further to the left.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jack-muse/at-yearly-kos-organizati_b_59044.html )

( Source) The Huffington PostAmericans have had to contend with unrelenting, disrespectful Bush-bashing since the President was sworn into office more than six years ago. To this very day the Democrat Party displays unmerited enraged ire. It appears that all they have to offer is vitriolic verbalizing and callous and dangerous strategies when it comes to our attempts to secure a lasting peace for

Iraq.Excerpts from Associated Press:

“Democrats reject Bush’s Iraq plan”

“WASHINGTON (AFP) — Democrats on Thursday rejected President George W. Bush’s plan for gradual troop pullbacks in Iraq, accusing him of laying the ground for an ‘endless and unlimited military presence in

Iraq.’”In excerpts from a Democratic rebuttal to Bush’s prime-time presidential address, the designated party spokesman Senator Jack Reed vowed his party would redefine the scope of the US mission in

Iraq.”‘Tonight, a nation eager for change in

Iraq heard the President speak about his plans for the future,’ Reed was due to say.”‘But once again, the President failed to provide either a plan to successfully end the war or a convincing rationale to continue it.’

“Reed said Democrats would do what they believe to be in the best interests of the United States and ‘redefine’ the US mission in

Iraq.”‘Do we continue to heed the President’s call that all

Iraq needs is more time, more of our money, and the indefinite presence of 130,000 American troops — exactly the same number as nine months ago? ‘” ‘An endless and unlimited military presence in

Iraq is not an option.’”Reed’s remarks were released by Democrats to counter advance excerpts of the speech Bush was due to give at 9 pm (0100 GMT Friday), which was itself previewed by the White House.

“Bush was to cite signs of political and security progress and embrace plans to pull out an estimated 21,500 US combat troops by mid-2008, in line with recommendations from his war commander General David Petraeus.” – Full Article – http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5gqC2t-uoTjPOdy2W-GZSg5ZV9DyA )

There has been absolutely no pleasing the party that has lost its moral compass. To the detriment to us all, they are determined to take us to an unacceptable defeat in
Iraq. Patriotic Americans must not allow that to happen. Like it or not, they are far too invested to let us lose in a country where precious blood of heroes have fallen.Hearken to the words of the Sunni governor ofAnbarProvince: “Our tomorrow starts today.” Indeed, the people who live in Anbar know it is possible to vanquish the extremists. They are doing so. We can foresee positive days ahead.However, let there be no misconceptions. Allow a Democrat into the White House and our fate and that of the Iraqi people will turn into a starkly grim and solemn nightmare. Real peace will elude us for decades if not generations.

None of their presidential candidates feel compassion towards the Iraqi people nor do they care to. They doublespeak and lie without concern for the enormous bloodbath that would follow if our troops were immediately removed from this fledgling democracy.

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John Edwards and Chris Dodd have no concern for consequences as their intentions are to bring the troops home while allowing the inevitable to happen to the innocent, young and old. For that reason, more and more Americans hold less and less respect for those who call themselves “progressive thinkers.” We will call them out for who they are — irresponsible, misguided and dangerous fools.

Be a Vegan or Else!

To put it quite simply, unless you and everyone else becomes a vegetarian or adopts the vegan (no animal products, period!) lifestyle, the Earth is going to come to an end or you will probably die from some horrid disease.

Sound extreme? Sound just a bit nutty? Not according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) or a recent study, “Food, livestock production, energy, climate change, and health” by Professor Tony McMichael of the Australian National University and Dr. John Powles of the Department of Public Health and Primary Care of the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom.

If either of these deep thinkers took a moment to contemplate the success of the human race in terms of survival and expansion, they would find that humans have twenty teeth in their mouth designed exclusively to eat meat, but only twelve for fruit and vegetables. Moreover, the human stomach is, in fact, a carnivorous organ designed primarily to digest lean meat. The small intestine, pancreas, and the liver are mainly herbivorous and designed to digest vegetables, fruits, fats and farinaceous (starch) foods. All this has been known for a very long time.

Why am I telling you this? Because for quite a while, there has been a vigorous campaign by the United Nations agency and by militant vegans to convince people that eating meat is a bad thing. The only way to respond to these “studies” and claims is to examine and debunk them.

First, however, one must ask why the FAO would foster a policy claiming that livestock is a major threat to the environment? Like the insidious Big Brother of George Orwell’s novel, “1984”, the purpose of the UN’s efforts is to exert control over every aspect of people’s lives.

Why else would an organization set up primarily to insure peace among nations create vast bureaucracies whose purpose is to advocate bogus notions such as “global warming” and then branch off with still other bureaucracies to impose restrictions based on idiotic notions such as the “precautionary principle”? Under the latter, any substance or process that might cause harm should be banned, no matter its benefit or known record of safety.

All this affords a nice living to legions of “scientists” and academics that issue reports to support ideas such as those put forth by professors McMichael and Powles. Their latest study, published in the The Lancet, a UK publication, is bound to receive the usual breathless media coverage that accompanies just about every witless environmental claim regarding the climate and every human activity.

Do you really believe that the “Worldwide average meat consumption could be realistically reduced by ten percent to reduce the already substantial impact of livestock production on greenhouse gas emissions”? Do you really believe there are “health risks posed by the rapid worldwide growth in meat consumption, both by exacerbating climate change and by directly contributing to certain diseases”?

At a time when there are more humans than ever before in recorded history, when life expectancy is being dramatically extended, when breakthroughs in genetic modification of crops to enhance both their production and the ability to increase their nutritional value, when diseases of every description are being conquered, would we ever want to return to a time when life was short, disease was rampant, and famine was the rule, not the exception?

This latest study is not about meat consumption. It is one of thousands of such specious claims that the Earth is warming dramatically due to human activity. It is one of thousands designed to alter the improving lifestyle of millions around the world who enjoy a hamburger or any other meat product, whether it be beef, lamb, chicken, or fish.

The Earth is not experiencing a rapid increase in heat. If it does increase or decrease, it will be entirely due to the actions of the Sun, the oceans, clouds, volcanoes, and the other natural factors that determine the Earth’s climate. Man is not causing the climate to change, but the climate most certainly impacts mankind.

The notion that livestock, like mankind, contribute to “global warming” is almost too ludicrous to consider, but that does not deter the FAO, the UN Environmental Programme, and countless “environmental” organizations from foisting these notions on everyone.

Like humans, each of whom exhales about two pounds of carbon dioxide daily, livestock also emit “greenhouse gases” and this is the basis for the latest study being trumpeted. However, the dominant greenhouse gas, estimated to be as much as ninety-five percent of the atmospheric layer that protects the Earth, is nothing more mysterious or threatening than water vapor.

With considerable irony, the latest “study” notes the abundance of food in the world today. If there is famine in parts of the world, it often reflects the mismanagement of agriculture by the corrupt and ignorant people who control nations that otherwise would produce sufficient food for their populations. Droughts and other natural factors contribute to famines, but food is often a weapon used against people as has been seen in Darfur, a section of Sudan where the Islamic fundamentalists in charge have been waging genocide.

Meat and the lies told about it is part of the arsenal of weapons being used to coerce and frighten people into believing that less production will “save” the Earth from the non-existent threat of “global warming” and is responsible for unidentified health threats attributed to it.

This accounts for the latest call that we all become vegetarians or vegans. It is idiotic on the face of its claims. It is a veiled attempt to further control the lives of everyone. Fight back! Have a steak tonight!
