Much of the world has jumped on the global warming (sorry, climate change) bandwagon as a means of gaining influence and power. With the Democratic Party pandering to the far left and anti-American elements throughout the world, the Bush administration appears headed towards an attempt to head them off at the pass.

Rep. John Yarmuth of Kentucky linked the costly, unpopular war with the growing economic troubles — some say recession — in this country.
Like how they slipped that mention of the word recession in there? I've mentioned how much I hate the MSM, right?

The confirmation from Brown's Downing Street office means he is the second major world leader after German Chancellor Angela Merkel to do so.
The White House left open the possibility Wednesday that U.S. President George W. Bush might also skip the opening ceremonies, which some world leaders have suggested would serve as a signal of displeasure over China's crackdown in Tibet.
However, Brown's Downing Street office said he was not boycotting the Olympics and would attend the closing ceremony.
Brown has been under intense pressure from human rights campaigners to miss the Aug. 8 opening. However, Brown's decision not to attend was not aimed at sending a message of protest to the Chinese government, the spokeswoman said on condition of anonymity in line with government policy.
She said the decision had been made weeks ago and was not a stand on principle.
"He had never planned to attend," she said. "There is absolutely no change in our position."

"It also betrays promises made by Chinese officials that human rights would improve in the run-up to the Olympics."
In 2001, China promised that if it won the right to host the Games, "tremendous" human rights improvements would ensue, a pledge repeated in October by Liu Jingmin, Beijing's vice-mayor and a top Games organiser.
How is that working out so far? Well, let's ask Mr. Hu Jia... what? He's not available? Let's ask his wife then...
Hu's wife, Zeng Jinyan, 24, who recently gave birth to their first child and is also a prominent rights activist, said the verdict was the culmination of four years of harassment by authorities.
"He's been put under surveillance, been kidnapped. He's been put under house arrest and now they have sentenced him to three and a half years," Zeng told reporters outside the courthouse as she broke down in tears.
"This is irrational and unfair."Well that just can't be... the Chinese government promised they wouldn't do things like that anymore. What do they have to say about it?
Earlier a ZANU-PF official said Mugabe, facing a fight for political survival after the worst election setback of his long rule, would contest the runoff.
Referring to the politburo meeting, a senior party member told Reuters: "I have no doubt the resolution will be in favor of a run-off, I have no doubt about that.
"We cannot just hand it to Morgan (Tsvangirai) on a silver platter. We will fight for it and we will win."

Raul was in charge for a long time while Fidel was sick, actually looking more like a figurehead than the true leader of the country. Can Raul really be this progressive at 76 years of age? Their economy has taken some hits recently, especially in the tourism trade, so opening things up makes good economic sense. What I didn't know before was that Cuba used one currency for paying locals (soft Cuban pesos) and another (hard Convertible pesos) currency for real goods and services. This is never good. Maybe the changes are the only way to avoid "Viva la revolution!!"?
I guess we'll see how far this goes. In the meantime, I might start looking into a civilian contract position at Guantanamo. If things bust wide open there, getting in early on some beachfront property could be a good idea. Of course, with their good friend Chavez as an example, it would probably be Nationalized in six months anyway, so ... never mind, I'll stay where I'm at.

The company is undergoing an audit, but says that there is no money missing.
Nothing to see here, move along. He just went "walkabout". It will be interesting if the Obama campaign mentions this at all to draw attention away from his ties to Rezko.

Conservative Belle has a great post on why we shouldn't support politicians who don't follow conservative principles. Read it and leave a comment to show your support.
I can almost feel the flames already. Why couldn't I have found these on a Friday night?
