Exclusive Excerpt: Obama Views Arab Spring Through Lens of Climate Change (VIDEO)

August 7, 2012 2:27 pm 5 comments

“Fool Me Twice” by Aaron Klein.

The following is an exclusive excerpt from “Fool Me Twice,” released today, the book seeks to project President Obama’s agenda for the next four years should he be re-elected.

The book’s best selling authors Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott present “exhaustive research into Obama’s upcoming detailed presidential plans and policies, as well as the specific second-term recommendations of major “progressive” groups behind the President and the Democratic leadership.”

U.S. Military for “Global Warming” Aid to Third World

A major progressive aim is the transfer of American wealth to the developing world. To borrow a battle cry from erstwhile “Green Czar” Van Jones, “Give them the wealth! Give them the wealth!” Now we shall see plans to use the military to do just that if Obama is reelected.

The White House’s most favored think tank, Podesta’s Center for American Progress (CAP), released a fifty-two-page proposal, from January 2012, in which authors Michael Werz and Laura Conley lay out a plan for the U.S. military to be used as the delivery vehicle of aid to developing countries purportedly ravaged by so-called global warming.

Within the general schema of using the “green agenda” to redirect defense funding to dubious environmental causes, the paper “Climate Change, Migration, and Conflict: Addressing Complex Crisis Scenarios in the 21st Century” contains a specific initiative to redistribute America’s wealth and resources to developing countries, and to “revisit traditional divisions of labor between diplomacy, defense, and economic, social, and environmental development policy abroad.” The CAP plan ridiculously blames “climate change” for such varied world events as the so-called Arab Spring and mass migrations, while pushing the transfer of enormous U.S. assets to the developing world. Nevertheless, a close reading of the report shows it concedes in several instances that there is zero proof for its contentions about climate change being responsible for dramatic world events. Yet CAP urges massive transfers of U.S. wealth anyway. In one section, the report admits:

Climate change is among these newly visible issues sparking conflict. But because the direct link between conflict and climate change is unclear, awareness of the indirect links has yet to lead to substantial and sustained action to address its security implications.

On migration and climate change, CAP cites United Nations data to warn:

In the 21st Century the world could see substantial numbers of climate migrants—people displaced by either the slow or sudden onset of the effects of climate change.

In that same section, the report concedes:

In fact there is major disagreement among experts about how to identify climate as a causal factor in internal and international migration. But even though the root causes of human mobility are not always easy to decipher, the policy challenges posed by that movement are real.

Likewise, the “Arab Spring”—really a series of Islamist coups brought to power through short-lived democratic uprisings—is viewed by CAP through the lens of . . . climate change!

The Arab Spring can be at least partly credited to climate change. Rising food prices and efforts by authoritarian regimes to crush political protests were linked first to food and then to political repression— two important motivators in the Arab makeover this past year.

Using the “science” of global warming, which will be dissected in the next chapter, CAP utilizes its unproved claims about world events to call for the United States, its allies, and key regional players to “work together to create a sustainable security situation to deal with climate change, migration, and conflict.” In other words, the U.S. should provide lots and lots of money to fight climate change overseas. For starters, recommendations include an increase in funding for the Global Climate Change Initiative efforts, and more money for the Climate Adaptation Fund established by the parties to the Kyoto Protocol, as well as the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change to counter global warming, adopted by over 190 countries. The U.S. is singled out as one “of the few global powers capable and willing to act in the common interest.” The report complains developing nations and small islands

will not only need adequate funding (no funds are allocated for migration so far), but also the expertise to carry out adaptation and mitigation efforts. These tasks could range from education or establishing early-warning systems, to implementing insurance for property and business owners, to altering crop mixtures and substantially modifying traditional land-use patterns. Assistance may also be required to help countries aggregate accurate nationwide data to identify mitigation needs and target relief to the most vulnerable communities.

There is little doubt the Obama White House is ready to embrace CAP’s recommendation of filtering world conflict through the lens of climate change and transformative global engagement, in part, based on this peculiar worldview. Already, the Obama White House Interagency Taskforce on adapting to climate change recommended the government develop a strategy to help poor countries contend with purportedly climate-induced challenges.

The Obama administration has also already overseen the release of four official defense and engagement reviews specifically designating climate change as a major consideration in planning global development and security strategies. This acknowledgment was prominently featured in the Congressionally mandated National Security Strategy of April 2010; the Defense Department’s Quadrennial Defense Review, the administration’s first-ever Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review; as well as the Presidential Policy Directive on Global Development.

In a shocking misuse of taxpayer money, in February 2012, one week after the Palestinian Authority entered into a unity government with the Hamas Islamist terror organization, the U.S. announced the continuation of a $100 million, five-year program initiated in 2010 to construct “environmentally and socially sustainable” buildings for the Palestinians. The website for the U.S. consulate in Jerusalem posted the plans, which include a community center and school to be built to meet “stringent third-party-verified ‘green’ certification standards.” Already, the U.S. Agency for International Development, which is funding the projects, has constructed the Safeer Center, a West Bank child-care program, one of the first of the U.S.-funded Palestinian “green” buildings to open. “Its energy-efficient insulation (visible through a small cutout), rainwater collection system and temperature-regulating window shades provide a healthy facility for more than 3,000 children,” boasted the U.S. consulate site. “These and others provide models for efficiency in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, where the mostly imported energy is expensive,” the site added.

Editor’s note: Below is a video trailer for “Fool Me Twice.” The book can be purchased on Amazon.

  • Hmmm… the Obama truth teamsters must be making their rounds. Nothing critical may be spoken of the Holy American Emperor.

  • Mr. President, you have my vote. Climate change is an issue we can not escape. Conservative propaganda such as this work is doing nothing but inhibiting progress. It is apparent that supporters of this and other negative adds have no real plan or aim at American growth and success. Just because you can make a video looping president Obama using the word sending does nothing but send a psychological message to naive readers and viewers that spending is somehow bad. We all benefit from government spending. Think about it and educate yourself. INCREASE NASA FUNDING! Space exploration inspires and creates dreamers like mathematicians and scientists, the people responsible for all the technology of today!

  • Guess you two don’t think climate change is real….

  • Seeing books and movies vetting a second term of this communist dictator is as hopeful a sign as the Chik-Fil-A defenders of free speech and freedom of religion banding together in support of Mr. Cathy’s comments. I don’t necessarily agree with What he said, but I’d give my life to support his right to say it! We have a Republic to save and every message and fact about our would be ruler we can get out there MUST be supported by we the defenders!

  • It’s important to note that many of us in America were never fooled by this man to begin with. We might not have known the specific details of his war/agenda but we damn well knew he stood for nothing good. At the most basic level of our criticism was the charge: He has no experience in government or leadership. His past was sketchy, having had a close alliance with known U.S. “terrorist” Saul Alinsky and as an Illinois senator struck down measures to provide water to babies who survived late-term abortions (water to a dying child who with help might be able to survive on their own). Let them die, is essentially what he said with his senatorial stance. So don’t believe for a second that he fooled us once and now he’s fooling us twice. Many of us have known from the beginning the character of this miscreant and the foolishness of his ways, and on the day he took office held our heads extra low. We knew we were headed for disaster.

    Surviving the Holocaust by Hiding Their Faith (REVIEW)

    “Jews Out!” was just the name of a child’s game that three little girls played in World War II Europe. But all is not as it seems because the three girls were Jewish, but hiding their true identities. In award-winning author R. D. Rosen’s riveting non-fiction work, Such Good Girls, “Jews Out!” wasn’t a game; it was a struggle for survival. The girls, Sophie, Flora, and Carla, grew up at a time and a place that did not allow them [...]

To gently wipe away the tears of children strategically placed inside kindergartens as human shields, the Hamas Interior Ministry [...]

    In a strong statement that challenges the historic divide between Christianity and Judaism, Pope Francis recently proclaimed, “Inside every Christian is a Jew.” But if you look at Renaissance artworks that depict Jesus, you will not find any evidence of a Jew inside the Christianized Jesus — even though the Gospels in the New Testament tell us that Jesus was Jewish to the core. Getting that point across to the public is a daunting task, as I learned in interviews I [...]
