Latest in Liberal tripe: Contraception prevents Global Warming

Just in case you thought liberalism wasn't evil, check out this particularly evil, liberal position. Apparently, taxpayer-funded contraception is good for the environment because it leads to fewer people less carbon on planet earth.

Via the Daily Caller:
During a discussion series on Monday at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C., speaker and activist Kavita Ramdas argued that contraceptives should be part of a strategy to save the planet, calling lower birth rates a “common sense” part of a climate-change reduction strategy.

At the event, titled “Women’s Health: Key to Climate Adaptation Strategies,” Ramdas pointed to studies conducted by health consultants at the for-profit Futures Group, the government-funded National Center for Atmospheric Research and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, in Austria, to connect contraception with climate change.

Ramdas told The Daily Caller that the research shows “empowering women to time their pregnancies” and avoid unwanted births would reduce carbon emissions between 8 to 15 percent globally.
Uh, huh. Are there actually people so brainwashed that they can't connect the next dot here? So if you start from the premise that fewer people equals a healthier environment for the earth, doesn't that necessarily mean that you believe human beings are a nuisance at best and evil at worst? Well, apparently Ramdas has a different view.
“It is common sense that when women are able to plan their pregnancies, populations grow more slowly and as a result so do greenhouse gas emissions,” she explained. “Providing access to contraception and preventative health should be one of the many effective strategies used to fight climate change.”

Ramdas is also executive director of the Program on Social Entrepreneurship at Stanford University.
Interestingly, Ramdas is also a Sikh Muslim who is featured prominently on the Wise Muslim Women website.

I have a question. If Ramdas is considered to be a "wise Muslim woman," why is she subscribing to the notion that fewer infidels people is good for the planet? Whoever considers that a wise point of view is either intellectually vacant or deceptively evil.

Considering that Islam is home to things like taqiyya, perhaps we should consider the latter option first.

Video: Occupy Phoenix calling for Capitalists to be Re-educated through "Manual Labor"

If you thought the OWS crowd was gone after its nationwide protests fizzled late last year, it did not. They went dormant and have spent the majority of the winter festering inside their warm worm holes, thinking of ways to hit back harder this spring. Here is one example in Phoenix.

As is the case in all Alinsky-style movements, targets need to be specific and ever changing because, as Rule number 7 States:
A tactic that drags on for too long becomes a drag. Commitment may become ritualistic as people turn to other issues.
Translation: You can only pick on the Koch brothers for so long before you have to go after someone else.

Enter another target; it's called ALEC or the American Legislative Exchange Council. It is a group made up of capitalist-minded state legislators and policy advocates.

Note what this useful idiot is calling for here. He wants all ALEC officials to be tried and sentenced to "manual labor" that is intended to fix all the damage that such officials are allegedly responsible for. In essence, what OWS in Phoenix is calling for here is the re-education of Capitalists

Via Verum Serum:

I apologize in advance for being redundant but in light of what OWS Phoenix, which is ironically located in the "American southwest" is advocating, I give you (again) the video of Larry Grathwohl in 1982. This video needs to be watched as many times as it takes to get the reality of what we're facing to sink in.

Grathwohl was the only man to successfully infiltrate the Weather Underground, founded by none other than Barack Obama friend and colleague, Bill Ayers. In this clip, he explains exactly what Ayers' group intended to do after taking down the United States government. Notice how many "capitalists" the Weather Underground intended to "eliminate" if they couldn't be "re-educated" in "centers located in the American southwest."

Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't Bill Ayers support the Occupy movement? Ditto Obama?

Video: Darrell Issa interview with Greta on Fast and Furious

About a month ago, reports began to surface from "four sources" according to Sipsey Street's Mike Vanderboegh that House Speaker John Boehner may have asked Oversight Chairman, Darrell Issa to pull back on the Fast and Furious investigation. Another report from Vanderboegh involved an alleged deal that would end the investigation; the Justice Department would offer up Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer and his Deputy Chief of Staff, Jason Weinstein in return.

In fairness to Issa and Boehner, this is not ironclad but it is noteworthy for two reasons. One, Boehner's relative silence on anything related to the investigation. Two, Issa's backing down on a threat to issue a contempt order of Attorney General Eric Holder if the latter didn't produce documents demanded in a subpoena. To this point, there still is no date set for Holder to comply. In fact, it is Holder whom Issa has given the privilege of picking a date by which he WILL comply. The word, "limbo" comes to mind.

Back to Breuer and Weinstein. Whether there is a deal or not, it is becoming increasingly obvious that these two men are likely feeling the most heat from Issa's Committee. While the evidence currently available definitely implicates those two men, it strongly points to officials above them, to include Eric Holder. Breuer and Weinstein appear to be guilty of criminal negligence at best but the investigation should absolutely not end with them. If it does, it will be a gross miscarriage of justice.

If you have time, this piece by Ronald Kolb at American Thinker is long but worth the read. It underscores this reality quite well.

That all leads to this exchange between Greta Van Susteren and Rep. Darrell Issa. A former attorney herself, Greta asks good, tough questions here. Also, take note that Breuer and Weinstein appear to be the brightest dots on Issa's radar. That's perfectly fine as long as the other dots don't drop off after taking Breuer and Weinstein down.
