Climategate: “Scientists” Are Faking Evidence!

Posted on November 24, 2009 by Donald Ferguson

An amazing story is unfolding in the U.K. this week.

The University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit, which is commonly known as Hadley CRU, has been hacked into, and its emails and files have been leaked onto the internet.  These emails and documents are quickly revealing that the so-called scientists of Hadley CRU have been faking evidence of global warming!

James Delingpole of the U.K. Telegraph has written an excellent at a glance summary of the damning evidence right here.

And my fellow Coloradoan, Michelle Malkin points out that investigations are being called for on both sides of the Atlantic as Lord Lawson and Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe begin to call for investigations.

The fact that foreign scientists are faking their research in an effort to push forward their socialists agenda is not a surprise, but evidence such as this is shocking as to how blatant they are about it.

Tester’s Cynical S1470 Tactics: A New Low in the Politics of Deceit

Posted on November 12, 2009 by Donald Ferguson

Jon Tester

"Little Jon"" Tester looks awfully small...

Often, we see issue advocacy leaders maligned for opposing bad legislation. Now, Jon Tester has clearly crossed an ethical line in claiming that a leader in the fight against Wilderness bills actually SUPPORTS his latest Montana Land Grab. Imagine if Conrad Burns had “thanked” Friends of the Earth for supporting his pro-drilling legislation under the “evil” Bush regime!!!

Left-wing Democrats’ failure to ban humans from massive swaths of the Northwest under NREPA (see petition opposing any and all such land grabs at ) has clearly prompted Tester’s cynical attempt to buy off the desperate timber lobbyists with meaningless baubles. This bill – and Tester’s disgusting tactic – is a perfect example of why pro-multiple use interests (including timber and energy) should NEVER compromise with radical environmentalists on watered down legislation at the expense of the people!

Following, a repost of an email (in blue) sent by Kerry White to members of his Citizens for Balanced Use pro-access organization:


Members and supporters of CBU need to be aware of the following deception from Senator Tester!

I received the following email (in blue) from Senator Tester thanking me for helping him to pass this S1470 and he makes it look like I am a co-sponsor of this bad legislation. I have been contacted by other members of CBU that have received the same email. These CBU members have told me they have contacted the Senator to request their name be removed as a supporter of this bill but they continue to receive this message.

I believe that the Senator is using the sign in sheet at the open houses to create this list of people and then adds them to his list of supporters for the bill. CBU members have also notified me that they have visited the Senator’s website and afterwards they began receiving this same email. I believe this to be very unethical.

If you have received one of these messages and you do not support S1470, please contact the Senator and request your name be removed from his supporter list. If you continue to receive these messages after you have requested to be removed, please let CBU know. Keep a record of when and whom you contacted in the Senator’s office.

Citizen Cosponsor Update

Dear Kerry,

Just a quick note to share a few updates about the Forest Jobs and Recreation Act.  First off, thank you for stepping up to the plate to join me in working to pass this bill.  Each day, you and I see the need to move forward to put people back to work in the woods and save our forests for recreation, clean water, and our hunting and fishing traditions today and for years to come.

I’m proud to share news that Senator Baucus has signed on as a cosponsor of the Forest Jobs Bill.

I’m hosting another open house on the bill in Butte this Thursday, the details for which are mentioned below.  I hope you can make it to hear more about the bill and share your thoughts.

In addition, I want to share an editorial about the bill that appeared in the Missoulian earlier this month.  Take a minute to read and pass this news along to your friends.  Forward this email or have them visit to sign up as a citizen cosponsor.

Thank you for all that you do
–Senator Jon Tester


EPA Threatens/Censors Employees Who Don’t Agree

Posted on November 9, 2009 by Donald Ferguson

This is enough to make my stomach churn!

The EPA this week has ordered two of their own attorneys to stop telling the truth about Cap and Tax, and the agency threatened firing the two employees they do not comply.

Allan Zabal and Laurie Williams are a married couple who are attorneys for the EPA.  After they learned the truth about the dangers of the Obama Cap and Tax scheme, they began to write blogs, post YouTube videos, and generally speak out about the terrible cost of Cap and Tax, as well as the legislation’s total ineffectiveness.   Now the EPA has ordered them to essentially shut up or be fired!

Even though the pair of truth tellers have gone to great length to state that their views are their own opinion, Obama’s EPA is ready and willing to go to great length silence any opposition to Cap and Tax.   This is a dark and frustrating chapter not only in the fight to stop Cap and Tax, but in the battle for free speech as well.

Despite Zabal and Williams being shut down by government censorship, the EPA has no power over your right to speak out against the dangers of Cap and Tax.  Please take a minute to tell your Senators that you don’t support the costly and dangerous Cap and Tax bill by signing Western Tradition Partnership’s e-petition.

You can read more about the EPA’s censorship of the truth over here at the Wall Street Journal.

Your Work is Paying Off!

Posted on November 6, 2009 by Donald Ferguson

The Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works (EPW) passed the Cap and Tax Bill by an 11-to-1 vote yesterday.   All of the seven Republican Senators that sit on this committee were absent from the vote in protest.

The Republican Senators have demanded that the Cap and Tax bill be reviewed for financial impact by the EPA, but committee chairman Barbara Boxer doesn’t want the world to know how much Cap and Tax will cost the United States, and she forced the bill through despite the Republican’s urge for common sense.

Despite the passage of Cap and Tax out of committee, the real story is that Montana Democrat Max Baucus voted AGAINST Cap and Tax.

Did Sen. Baucus oppose the bill simply because sees through the lies of the radical environmentalists?  Of course not!

The reason Sen. Baucus opposed the bill is because he is feeling grassroots pressure from his constituents to oppose the monstrously damaging Cap and Tax legislation.  The pressure being applied from Montanans signing petitions like the one at is what is making a difference.

As long as more pressure keeps flowing from the grassroots like yourself, the radical enviromentalists will continue to see more and more Democrats peel away from Cap and Tax, and it will be stopped.

If you haven’t already done so, make sure to go to to sign the petition to your Senator to keep the pressure flowing.   If you’ve already signed the petition, make sure to tell your friends to go to to sign the petition right away.   Once you’ve signed the petition and informed your friends, the next thing I need you to do, is please make a sacrificial donation to help spread the word.   Every penny Western Tradition Partnership is raising right now is going out to spread the word and apply more pressure to Senators across the West.  Please consider making this effort even greater with a donation.

Don’t let preachers of doom and naysayers tell you that Cap and Tax is a battle that can’t be won.  With your help, we can defeat this legislation.
