"For They That Sow The Wind Shall reap the Whirlwind"


By Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

As Hurricane Katrina dismantles Mississippi’s Gulf Coast, it’s worth recalling the central role that Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour played in derailing the Kyoto Protocol and kiboshing President Bush’s iron-clad campaign promise to regulate CO2.

In March of 2001, just two days after EPA Administrator Christie Todd Whitman’s strong statement affirming Bush’s CO2 promise former RNC Chief Barbour responded with an urgent memo to the White House.

Barbour, who had served as RNC Chair and Bush campaign strategist, was now representing the president’s major donors from the fossil fuel industry who had enlisted him to map a Bush energy policy that would be friendly to their interests. His credentials ensured the new administration’s attention.

The document, titled “Bush-Cheney Energy Policy & CO2,

A perfect ticket would be Kennedy/Ventura or Ventura/Kennedy for 08.

Kennedy/Sheehan 2008 ?

Yes, that's what we need. Sheehan has the cajoles no one else seems to have....courage.

Kennedy/Sheehan 2008 ?

"On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their hearts' desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron." – H.L. Mencken, Baltimore Sun, 1920

Menken's prognostication was only 80 years ahead of his time. What that newspaper man had no way of foreseeing, however, was the irony – the profound yet unintended irony - in his observation.

Context here.

There is some important material at this site, this evening. I wondered what the inside skinny on the Kyoto betrayal was. Thank you, Mr. Kennedy, always a bright light when the msm finds something resembling the good effect of a good conscience.

I say 'something resembling the effect of a good conscience'. I am confident the motive for inviting Mr. Kennedy to appear on Fox, e.g., is based on some type of executive larceny.

Being kept from the American people by their leaders have been the uncounted offers of assistance from Nations all around the world, including:

Venezuela has offered their Medical Airlift Command for the evacuation of peoples trapped in these devastated regions.

Holland has offered the resources of their Public Works Ministry (and who are the acknowledged World Experts for below sea level water evacuation procedures).

Russia has offered over 100,000 temporary living structures, along with Military Personal to assist their American counterparts.

Iran has offered 1 Billion US Dollars in immediate assistance and guaranteed 5,000,000 barrels of oil at $35.00 US Dollars.

China has offered their Military Rescue Forces (Who are acknowledged as one of the best in the world for rescuing peoples in flood ravaged areas.)

All of these offers, and more, the US administration have declined, and for the their previously stated reason: “The United States Government and its People Respectfully Decline your offer of assistance and refer you to our previous State Department Bulletin (NCO:13788) in which we had stated that this remains an internal action.

I'll check it out. Can you help?

yeah I can but it is a bit embarrassing - I read it on, http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index813.htm

Is Barbour a smart crook or for that matter is Wolfowitz or Bolton and obviously Bush or Cheney smart? We're now seeing the effect of having truly blind-sided stupid people in a postion of power.
