The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense


“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775


"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell

Obama Says You Can't Keep Your... Life


Here's the Nonsense:  President Obama's signing of another Executive Order was just to get America to deal with climate change.  We should embrace it and look forward to a better future for our planet.

Here's the Horse Sense:  President Obama's recent Executive Order is not as much about climate change (a highly questionable "scientific" claim), as it is about whether your life will be controlled by you or the government.  

Did we miss it?  Sure, some reports came out about Obama signing a new Executive Order last week, but not much was reported about it.  We only heard that it was about global warming or climate change, but no real reporting was done to tell us what it means.  Looking deeper we may find some serious things to be concerned about.

Sara Noble at IndepentdentSentinel.com posted an article about this Executive Order at her blog.  Based on her reporting, we should all be very concerned.  She points out that this recent Executive Order ties together numerous previous Executive Orders (13514; 12893; 13604; 13231; 13652; 13604; 13580; and 12898) and strips more power away from American citizens.  

As usual, it's a power grab on the part of the administration and Americans lives will never be the same if this stands.  She points out that it forms a new task force to push the federal government's climate change agenda on the states and will empower Obama to avoid not only Congress, but state legislatures in the decision making.

She writes:  "It is one more sweeping takeover by the Imperial President. It will give him control of businesses including car manufacturers, energy companies, et al. (How can we say we own property if the government controls every aspect of it?) He will control all natural resources policies within states."

This is the next step in Agenda 21, which was started by the United Nations and America was signed on to it by President George H. W. Bush.  All following presidents have pushed us further down its path to taking away private property and individual rights to bring us under control of a worldwide agenda that will wipe out the America we know and love.  It's not just about property rights either.  Social justice, redistribution of wealth, population growth, etc. are also part of it.  For an excellent description of Agenda 21 click here to read "Agenda 21 in One Easy Lesson" from the American Policy Center.

Ms. Noble goes on to say, "His order groups forest fires, Superstorm Sandy, drought, everything imaginable, as if they were all caused by global warming, aka climate change, though that is not scientifically accurate. Mr. Obama is ‘streamlining’ federal and state agencies to deal with climate change and sustainability, and who gets to decide the definitions, the means, and the manner? Since 2009, it’s been Mr. Obama and we can expect his environmental extremism, which happens to match the UN’s Agenda 21, to continue, only now it will be at breakneck speed."

The president has put into place a plan that parallels the U.N. plans and Ms. Noble correctly concludes "They [the United Nations] called for a complete overhaul of how the world’s food and water are created and distributed — something the report says is 'urgently needed' for the human race to keep feeding and hydrating itself safely. They called for global governance of the earth’s resources."

This is not just about keeping our nation, it's about keeping our lives.
