On Saturday night November 21, 2009 I reached my destination in Fresno, CA. It was a 5 hour drive from Redding so I went straight to the theater where the film “Not Evil Just Wrong” was screening. I had already seen it twice, but I wanted to be there for the question and answer session with the film’s Producers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer.
I arrived just as the film ended. The Producer and Director Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer were just being introduced. These Irish Patriots have dedicated themselves to protecting America’s freedoms by exposing eco-tyranny.
It was a very well-educated and intelligent audience. They peppered Ann and Phelim with a variety of inquiries for over an hour about science, politics, environmentalism, and their film.
Phelim described how the false science of global warming is used to create big government regulations over everything we do.
Ann then shared some of her experiences with environmentalists and how it relates to the people of Central California.
We can do without the smelt, but if the farmers in the Central Valley are the new endangered species, our government is too powerful.
This crowd knows full well of the mistakes of excessive environmental controls imposed by the government. When government takes over the farms with water restrictions, or other businesses with carbon restrictions, it becomes the oppressive force that we Declared our Independence from 233 years ago.
Government induced poverty. By controlling the amount of water the government can decide who succeeds, and who fails. They can put strangers in charge of your wells, and caps on free access. The bureaucracy has become too big, too powerful.
An audience member pointed out that government is colluding with some businesses over others in an effort to create government entities to undermine the free market. Policies that are banned by our constitution have become tools for the left-wing conspiracies to topple capitalism.
The situation is made worse when big government comes in and tries to solve a non-existant environmental crisis like climate change. The Cap and Trade scam being pushed by members of Congress does not fool anyone.
As the new administration embarks on a policy of economic nonsense, huge budget deficits are created. The mandates to switch to inefficient forms of energy production cause the taxpayers to pick up the tab for the losses created every time the wind blows. These losses rob our children and grandchildren of funding for their education and their safety.
Responding to a question from the audience on recalls and impeachments, Ann shared her thoughts about the change in our government.
They spoke like true patriots, standing up for freedom and American ideals. Ann even shared her thoughts about Michael Moore.
One member of the audience asked about their background; how they became involved; what is the story behind their story. Ann was very open and forthright as she apologized for once being a liberal. Then as she worked to help save humanity, she converted from saving the planet to saving the people. It was time to stop preventing economic growth for the sake of a fish or a lemur.
As the discussion continued the audience questioned the value of carbon offsets. Phelim warned that Carbon has become a means to tax everything we do.
Again the audience questioned them about the financial windfall Al Gore has made by bankrupting his fellow citizens with fraudulent environmental laws.
Just like during the American Revolution in 1776, we are joined by patriots who love freedom and the ideals our country stands for. Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer have stood up for the truth and supported our freedoms.
Now as our own president travels to Copenhagen, Americans wonder if he plans to sell us out to eco-tyranny. Any treaty based on climate change is an attempt to turn our sovereignty over to a new global government that will give us energy and water restrictions, economic controls, third world health care, and a government debt burden that will be paid with high taxes on our children and grandchildren.
Enough is enough! This global government is not elected by our people, not answerable to our Congress or our courts, not working for our best interests. If our own politicians can put fish above humans, imagine what foreign political leaders will do once they control us with Cap and Trade.
