Obama's 'crisis' response: Raise taxes, destroy sovereignty

Financial chaos, failing banks, skyrocketing unemployment, swine flu – crisis after crisis is being used by the Obama administration, critics claim, to facilitate an unprecedented federal power grab and socialist transformation of America.
So what could be worse than exploiting a serious crisis to rob citizens of their wealth and freedoms?
Answer: Exploiting a non-existent crisis – in fact, one specifically created as a pretext for absconding with more of Americans’ wealth, sovereignty and fundamental liberties.
That’s what the September edition of Whistleblower magazine – titled “POWER PLAY” – is all about.
This blockbuster report’s long subtitle says it all: “‘Cap-and-trade’: How Obama is using a phony crisis to advance global governance, cripple industry, tax everyone (especially the poor) and gain unprecedented power.”
Although the so-called “scientific consensus” on man-caused global warming has never existed, within the last year it has become embarrassingly obvious, with over 30,000 scientists openly declaring, in writing, that it is a fraud. More and more climatologists and other weather experts now say Al Gore’s claims that the oceans will rise 20 feet (and ABC News’ claim that they will rise 200 feet) are not only preposterously unscientific, but were concocted solely to panic Americans into adopting a socialist cap-and-trade “solution” put forth by the same people that created the “crisis.”
What about the U.N.’s vaunted Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, widely cited as proof of an international scientific “consensus” on the imminent threat of man-caused global warming? “POWER PLAY” reveals it to be a fraud – a servile political organization masquerading as an august scientific body.
Incredibly, “POWER PLAY” documents how “cap-and-trade” amounts to an unprecedented tax increase, one that disproportionately burdens the poor. Just as outrageous, top global warming proponents now admit cap-and-trade’s real purpose is implementing – in their own words – “global governance,” while making every citizen’s energy costs skyrocket, something Obama himself admitted during the 2008 presidential campaign.
As Whistleblower Editor David Kupelian shows in his article, “Government by crisis,” cap-and-trade is a perfect example of government by crisis, the hallmark of the Obama administration.
Issue highlights include:
“The cap-and-trade legislation currently before Congress,” says Kupelian, “will dramatically raise taxes in the middle of a depression, crush industry and undermine American sovereignty – all to cure a problem that doesn’t exist, and which even if it did exist, couldn’t begin to solve the problem, but would still devastate the nation. In short, it’s a monstrosity.”
He warns: “In terms of the 2010 election, cap-and-trade is a litmus test for Congress members’ sanity: You can’t be a sane, responsible, honest representative and support this legislation. It’s crucial that Americans understand what this is really all about – an all-out assault on America – and let their congressmen know before it’s too late.”

Cleon Skousen. The author explains in clear, concise terms all that came together to create a nation that literally accomplished a 5,000-year leap in progress. Skousen covers in detail what went into the design of the U.S. Constitution, highlighting the original sources for the principles that inspired the United States, and showing how the Founders developed these principles from the studies of Cicero, Locke, Montesquieu, and Adam Smith.
As “The 5,000 Year Leap” proves, it was because of the free enterprise system that America produced such astounding inventions and ideas, from jet propulsion to the doubling of life expectancy. Within this narrative of success, Skousen weaves the story of America as a Christian nation, guided by divine providence and created for the liberty and rights of mankind. “The 5000 Year Leap” gives the reader a greater understanding of the origins of the United States of America, the consequences of deviating from the principles on which it was founded, and all the characteristics that make this nation what it is today.
