UN meets to discuss new global restrictions on economic activity

Posted on November 26, 2012 by Donald Ferguson

United Nations bureaucrats are meeting in Doha, Qatar this week for a new global summit seeking to impose global taxes and caps on carbon dioxide emitted through economic activity.

The Obama administration has kicked off the event by promising aggressive new actions to limit economic activity in the United States.

The Guardian reports Obama representative to the conference Jonathan Pershing tells delegates “the Obama administration has taken a series of steps, including sharply increasing fuel efficiency standards for cars and trucks, and made good on promises of climate financing for poor countries.”

The Guardian also notes Obama’s Cap and Tax scheme was killed in the U.S. Senate. That was due to the efforts of ATP supporters and our allies in contacting and challenging wavering senators.

The UN has taken past actions to limit carbon dioxide and curb economic activity, but none of these have affected global climate.

Rather than accept the scientific proof human activity is not altering the global climate, UN bureaucrats are using their failure to instead suggest they don’t have enough power and are now pushing even more draconian restrictions on economic activity.

See Gang Green get ‘Axed’

Posted on November 25, 2012 by Donald Ferguson

You can help expose the radical agenda of Gang Green with just one click.

Filmmaker J.D. King is currently working on “Axed,”  a documentary detailing how, in the name of “being green,” our liberties, our private property rights, and our standards of living are constantly being chopped at and splintered away.

This could be a very powerful weapon as we turn the tide of public opinion against Gang Green’s central planners.

King will document stories of individual Americans and natural resource based companies who are being sacrificed on a green altar. We also plan to meet with historians and experts on the subject.

As you can imagine Hollywood isn’t too happy about “Axed,” so no studio will fund it.

But we are.

I need you to go here and chip in as little as $5 to help King get “Axed” produced.

You may give more if you like, and I strongly recommend it.

ATP has no association or relationship with J.D. King or “Axed.”  I just want to see Gang Green exposed for millions to see.

Do it now.  King only has three more days to get the film funded.

So go here to chip in $5 or more.

Sincerely,

Donald Ferguson

Congess bails out Big Wind?

Posted on November 19, 2012 by Donald Ferguson

In the wake of Barack Obama’s re-election employers across the country are being forced to lay off workers.

Obama’s EPA is waging new wars on energy, driving utility costs up.

So why are we bailing out Big Wind corporations with a special interest “Wind Production Tax Credit?”

The wind tax credit was created to “get the industry off the ground” — 20 years ago.

Two decades, and billions of dollars later, wind is still an unreliable, expensive job killer.

The time has come to cut off Big Wind’s annual bailout, but special interests are telling House Speaker John Boehner to keep the welfare dollars coming.

And he may agree to it.

Call Speaker Boehner right now, today, at 202-225-6205 and tell him to oppose any extension of the “wind tax credit.”

Obama announces new environmentalist attacks on the economy

Posted on November 15, 2012 by Donald Ferguson

President Barack Obama is so committed to the Gang Green agenda he held his first press conference in eight months to announce he would seek new job-killing limits on the amount of harmless carbon dioxide power plants produce.

“(E)nvironmentalists are hopeful that Obama will fashion a muscular agenda through existing administrative powers, such as expanding on rules that the Environmental Protection Agency has begun rolling out,” The Hill reports.

“EPA has already floated draft carbon standards for new power plants, and a second-term agenda could include standards for existing plants, and regulations that address other large emitters.”

Obama’s dangerous anti-prosperity agenda is why American Tradition Partnership is seeking a roll call vote on the REINS Act, a common sense reform requiring any proposed federal regulation costing more than $100 million to be approved by Congress and signed by the President before it may be enacted

House will vote on overturning environmentalist ban on inhalers for sick kids

Posted on November 12, 2012 by Donald Ferguson

“Republicans are expected to call up H.R. 6190, the Asthma Inhalers Relief Act, on Tuesday. The bill would allow the sale of about 1 million remaining Primatene Mist inhalers, despite a ban on the sale of this product since the end of 2011,” The Hill reports.

“Primatene Mist had been used by asthma sufferers for decades, but it was banned under the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, and also the Clean Air Act…The House Energy and Commerce Committee approved the bill by voice vote in August and said passage would allow the remaining 1 million inhalers to be sold.”

Since House rules must be suspended to bring up the bill, a two-thirds majority is needed to pass.

According to the Asthma and Allergy foundation asthma accounts for one-quarter of all emergency room visits in the U.S. each year, with 1.75 million emergency room visits.

There are more than 3,300 deaths due to asthma each year and asthma is indicated as “contributing factor” for nearly 7,000 other deaths each year.  Environmentalists still banned inhalers to treat attacks.

Environmentalists illegally electioneering in Montana

Posted on November 2, 2012 by Donald Ferguson

Three “Gang Green” organizations, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV), Montana Conservation Voters and the political action committee “Montana Hunters and Anglers Leadership Fund” are illegally electioneering for the Libertarian candidate in the state’s U.S. Senate race, hoping to throw the election in favor of unpopular Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.)

“Jon Tester and his liberal allies realize that Tester cannot win this election on his own, so they have engaged in illegal, deceptive practices in a desperate attempt to trick conservative voters,” Montana Republican Party spokesman Chris Shipp said Wednesday as the group filed suit in federal court alleging the groups failed to disclose their activities.

As pretty much the only group in Montana that obeys the law, ATP offers cash rewards for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Montana officials.

“The Montana GOP cited the PAC’s recent $146,358 mailing expense and a previous $410,000 contribution from LCV to the PAC as the basis for its complaint. It also noted the Hunters and Anglers PAC has ties to Tester and Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.),” The Hill reports.
