Former Man Made Climate Change Skeptic Funded by the Koch Bros. Says He's Now Convinced It's ManMade

Though he now admits that Climate Change is man made, he asserts it is very small and that we can fix things by expanding fracking.  I think he's still working for the Kochs whose "small business" as John Boehner likes to call it (though they make billions every year) is likely into fracking now.  BTW, this scientist claims China can't afford to switch to alternative energy?  Um they are the ones pushing American companies out of solar by developing their own cheaper products, so that's not true. What is likely is that China is developing solar to sell to Europe and the US, while it can continue to use cheaper Gobal Warming technology. The Koch brothers would like US money probably to push natural gas from fracking in the developing world. And yes they are involved in providing for fracking. And also seem to have investments in industries that are making direct money from the process.

Above are two illustrations of the hockey stick chart that shows the temperatures of the last 1000 years.  The bottom part shows the differences by the different sources. Even if the change is small, it is accelerating quickly.  So, yes, I think this guy is still being manipulated by the wishes of the Koch brothers.

Genealogist Obama Related to First African Slave in America

A couple of genealogists believe that, through his mother's family, Obama may be related to the first African slave on American soil.  The once indentured servant, after a failed escape was enslaved for life though his two white co-escapees suffered only  lashings and imprisonment (and presumably were later released at some time).  There is still controversy on whether indentured servants, at least with origins or genes from Africa were actually slaves, but John Punch formally lived that life after his capture.  He also fathered children with a white woman whose children are assumed to have been Obama's mother's ancestors according to a report in the LA Times Obama related to legendary Virginia slave, genealogist says.

I remember a report in 2008 saying that Obama was related to slave holders through his mother's family.  This ties in with that report in the slave holders in question apparently had blood clues that pointed to their own descent from Africans.

Businessman In Romney Ad Actually Agrees With Obama

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy
Mr. Gilchrist agrees that government products aided his ability to manage a business, but forgets to mention the police, firemen, and paramedics that are likely to be part of his peace of mind in case he needs aid in an emergency. It is also well known that gas taxes do not keep up with the amount of money needed to maintain the federal highways and the GOP thinks so little of gas taxes that they continuously call for dropping them altogether and putting the federal roads on the general fund taxpayer's back. The military is also important in keeping any product that Mr. Gilchrist might obtain from overseas available though I don't like the idea of killing people for natural resources at any price. So, yeah, the president has a point as even Mr. Gilchrist acknowledges if in a more constrained fashion than maybe he should.

Romney Brought in Own Black Conservatives to NAACP to Support Him

Later Romney told others that black leaders at the NAACP told him they privately agreed with him, but he'd brought those agreeable black leaders with him, so his implication that black leaders were behind him was basically a lie.

Also this video shows that Romney advised another group of minorities (Latinos) that they should go to "the other guy" in regards to "getting free stuff".

For the NAACP the question was about "Obamacare" which is a paid system of universal health care, not free, and for the Latinos the subject was about women getting contraception from health care insurance that they pay for.  Neither program is about getting "free stuff" and this shows how much a racist and sexist Romney is.

I am now convinced that the extreme racist, sexist, classist Karl Rove is been integrated into Romney's campaign.  This goes along with his recent comments that he isn't really an integral part of the Crossroads superPACs, which is likely a lie, but will the news system really report on that illegality among Republicans?  I doubt it.
