This morning, I was listening to a television news commentator, Stuart Varney, explaining why, in his opinion, Barak Obama is pushing the Global Warming agenda to the extent that the economy is suffering unnecessarily, and is opposing needed development of oil and gas resources in the face of growing problems in the middle east. Stuart opined that it made no sense to appease the environmentalists to this extent because they represented only a modest voting bloc, and that just as much campaign funding could be obtained from oil interests. His conclusion was that Obama is a true believer in the Global Warming nonsense, and expects to save the world from catastrophic climate change through undermining the oil and coal industries. I was appalled that someone of Varney’s stature and sophistication is apparently clueless regarding the far left’s long term agendas. Obama, the nominal leader of the far left and modern progressives, is indeed, a witting proponent of the transparent propaganda of the UN’s IPCC. Neither Obama nor the IPCC believe the climate change propaganda; they only invented the global warming sham to further their own much broader agendas.
Alternately, Stuart speculated that Obama sees himself as a transformative President; transforming the world from fossil fuels to green energy sources. He is partly right about that; Obama’s goal is to transform The United States, but from a free market democracy into a socialist, redistributionist government. The first step in this transformation is to bring the government so close to bankruptcy that entitlements and public debt can be repudiated. The second step is to achieve governmental control of energy sources through carbon tax, environmental restraints, and regulations, thereby gaining control of commerce, industry and transportation. The public, first brainwashed through the fear of climate change can then be brainwashed into compliance with, in effect, a benevolent dictatorship government.
I understand that, in these broad terms, it is difficult not to dismiss this idea as right wing paranoia. I do not claim that this is a fully developed and mature strategy, agreed in detail by all participants. It is more a general direction in which many statist philosophies are inclined to look. The sinister aspect of this generalization is that well financed and extremely motivated individuals, and organizations, while small in numbers, are having powerful influences on the political beliefs of the general populace.
These individuals and organizations have intentions to take statist policies far beyond most liberal and leftist ideas of proper government. If these intentions were to be fully realized, we might see the end of Medicare and Medicaid, first phased into a single payer, universal medical system, then dissolved into a government operated medical bureaucracy with doctors and other medical professionals working on salary directly for the government, similar to the Veterans Administration. Social Security might go away, replaced by government provided housing for seniors, including government provided food, clothing and burial expenses. Population reduction will be an important agenda, as will deindustrialization, deurbanization, and centralization of government and law enforcement. Private pensions may be confiscated and public pensions refuted.
One of the masterminds of this new world is a man named Maurice Strong. He has been the most powerful leader in the United Nations bureaucracy for many years. He is behind the UN’s IPCC (International Panel on Climate Control), whose mission it is to control public thought and political policy through the threat of disastrous Global Warming and Climate Change. The ingenious (and false) pseudo-scientific proposition that Carbon Dioxide controls the world’s climate and that the burning of fossil fuels by humans is radically changing the world’s climate has already gained wide acceptance in private and political thinking. It is extremely troubling that an idea so much in opposition to geologic history, main stream scientific knowledge, and common sense could become accepted as fact. It reinforces the idea that a large population of humans can be convinced of any lie, no matter how unlikely, if the lie is repeated often enough by supposedly credible sources.
Maurice Strong, and many like-minded, and powerful individuals have become convinced that world population is about to spiral out of control and that free market capitalism has created an unsustainable civilization that is destroying the worlds environment. They strive to de-industrialize, and depopulate the civilized world, returning the planet to near prehistoric conditions before rebuilding in their vision of a perfect, socialistic society. That is not to say that any of these individuals (including Barak Obama), or organizations believe this can be achieved in one lifetime. These are long term goals to be accomplished by like-minded descendants.
This might not be the world you would prefer that your children and grandchildren live in, but at this point, it seems inevitable. If Stuart Varney couldn’t see it coming, what chance is there that a voting majority ever will.

Quote by Ban Ki-Moon, UN Secretary General: “A deal must include an equitable global governance structure. All countries must have a voice in how resources are deployed and managed.”
Quote by Jacques Chirac, former French President: “For the first time, humanity is instituting a genuine instrument [Kyoto Protocol] of global governance,”…”By acting together, by building this unprecedented instrument, the first component of an authentic global governance, we are working for dialogue and peace.”
Quote by Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, architect of the new Germanic masterplan, the ‘Great Transformation’: “Either the Earth System would undergo major phase transitions as a result of unchecked human pressure on nature’s capacities and resources or a “Great Transformation” towards global sustainability would be initiated in due course. Neither transitions nor transformations will be manageable without novel forms of global governance and markets…
“Quote by UN’s Commission on Global Governance: “Regionalism must precede globalism. We foresee a seamless system of governance from local communities, individual states, regional unions and up through to the United Nations itself.”
Quote by Club of Rome: “…the resultant ideal sustainable population is hence more than 500 million people but less than one billion.”
