Obama Homeland Security: “Greenhouse Gases” Biggest Security Prob; Hassles Agents About Energy Usage

By Debbie Schlussel

Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security apparently believes the most pressing security issue facing the “Homeland” is “climate change.” That’s why, last week, the agency sent federal law enforcement agents the e-mail message, below. One of my agent friends sent me a copy of the absurd message.


My agent friend writes:

Hey Debbie,

Just thought you might find this funny. While the world is going to sh*t with Ebola & ISIS, my agency is more concerned with my greenhouse gas emissions. Nero truly is fiddling while Rome is burning . . . or is it the Captain of the Titanic rearranging the deck chairs as she sinks?

Either way…at least I don’t work for the Secret Service! Nyuk nyuk nyuk [DS: For those of you in Dearbornistan, that’s a “Three Stooges” sound effect]. Be well!


Actual Homeland Security Recruitment Ad

Amen. Hmmm . . . do you think ISIS or Al-Nusra Front or Hezbollah is asking its terrorists about their carbon footprint?

America . . . Desperate But Not Serious.

Even given the stupidity of this administration’s policies, I don’t think they really believe climate change or related issues such as greenhouse gases are the major security problem. Likewise, when Kerry says global warming (or whatever they call it nowadays) is the main security issue, I don’t think he really believes it.

I think these liberals make this type of assertion to justify inaction. Our dumbed-down population will think: “duh, our leaders say global warming is the main security issue — I guess the reason none of these problems can be solved is that not enough people are exhibiting their concern for climate change” (or similar issues purported to be necessary to ensure global trust).

Thus, Kerry and the rest of them have a ready-made excuse for inaction; since we are not sufficiently conscious of climate change, our concerned administrators are unable to take meaningful steps to solve security problems. Of course this philosophy is meant to justify the inaction associated with appeasement. And Kerry et al are saved from having to discuss the main reasons for global insecurity.

I especially like the photo of the female in the Muslim head gear on the Homeland Security flier.

How inclusive.

Bob Smith on October 14, 2014 at 3:23 pm

As per their own description, there is no such thing as a Greenhouse Gas. Therefor out of the goodness of my heart and as a gratuitously proffered public service, I will inventory for them by submitting a blank sheet of paper!

JayPee on October 14, 2014 at 3:34 pm

Whilst I’m one of some on the conservative right-wing (center-right/right-of-center) who yes believes in climate change and have studied ALL of the hypothesis consensus evidence on (these days, both humans and the atmosphere are responsible for climate change, and about over 200 years ago before the Industrial Revolution, there was some atmospheric mutations in the weather, but as I said, since the post-Industrial Revolution, humans have attributed to climate change) it, I think that climate change is something that those in the science-community ought to and are figuring out how to get the temperature back to average, we’re at 1 degree above average for the whole world.

I agree with DS in this, Obama and his DHS (which was started under Bush BTW) ought to worry about the more important stuff, such as national security and how to counter ISIS-terrorists, and also about those who’ve over the last few months here in the US, have gone to the Middle East and fought for ISIS, etc., and not worry about climate change, that is something for scientists to put 2-@-2 together. After all, Obama, his DHS and others in his administration aren’t scientists and they don’t according to my knowledge have college-degrees in science or biology?

Sean R. on October 14, 2014 at 4:05 pm

I’ll NEVER believe in AGW. Sorry. Even way back in the early 90s when I was still a dumb Libtard I never believed in it. I read Rush Limbaugh’s 1st book and he explained very cogently why it is/was nonsense all the way back then. I was Liberal (IE:, a very uninformed one, which may be redundant…) but I liked Rush because I liked his satire. I gradually saw the light because Libtards and their causes were so phony and they always turned out to be hypocrites. It was easy to laugh at them then. Not so easy now as their insanity takes over.

Again, I will point out if Libtards REALLY cared about the environment, they would focus on litter and pollution, which if you notice, they never do now. I distinctly remember in grammar school a worksheet on the environment that said the earth was cooling. Oh snap, what happened? (Scams and power plays THAT’S WHAT! Not anything to do with the climate. That stays pretty steady in a macro sense.) And your local weatherman can’t even accurately predict weather after 6 days so why believe a bunch of shysters fronting that the sky is falling?

All one has to do (other than looking into the scams of proponents of AGW like “hide the decline”, etc…) is just go back before the turn of the century and the first 3 decades of the early 1900s. We had the dust bowl here and New England suffered greatly around 1911 with oppressive heat. People threw themselves out of windows and off of roofs because they went crazy from the heat. The era before Air Conditioning and mass production of fans.

Even Nat Geo did a whole show on what would happen if every human vanished from the Planet (something that will prolly happen if an Islamic Caliphate comes to fruition) and after allllllllll was said and done, the Earth would eventually rejuvenate itself and start over again. And this is after all the massive meltdowns of unattended Nuclear Power Sites and the hellfires that come from that.

If that can happen then that alone proves the AGW Chicken Littles are either useful dupes or in on the power grab.

Meanwhile, pollution and litter still proliferate…2 things that can be very simply fixed and/or attended to. Gimme a break! If I’m gonna believe in fake sh**, I’m going with The Great Pumpkin. At least I’ll have fun and get some treats!

{{Skunky on October 14, 2014 at 5:16 pm

I took this survey. My car pumps out 7/10 of a ton of co2 every year, apparently. And that’s commuting twice a week as i work from home the other three. A bit disappointed; I was hoping i’d be up around 2 or 3 tons.

I do not believe that a 1 degree change in temperature will spell doom for the planet.

matt on October 14, 2014 at 8:45 pm

Greenhouse gases don’t exist and climate change is natural having absolutely nothing to do with human activities. Carbon dioxide emissions DO EXIST however and are GOOD for the environment in that plant life needs CO2 like we need oxygen. The more CO2 in the air the better. Remember knucklehead Al Gore’s INCONVENIENT TRUTH? Global warming and CO2 were going to destroy the universe! Well the REAL inconvenient truth (for liberals that is) is that God is in complete charge. Libs hate knowing that there is something out there more powerful than them that they can’t control.

Tommy Thomas on October 14, 2014 at 9:25 pm


I thought you would have more stories on DHS lately other than emails about climate change. What about the plummeting morale that no one thought could be any lower?

A: Have done that story on this site many times over the years. It gets old. And I don’t want to cover what everyone else is covering. But if you send me tips like this BEFORE it gets around, then I might put it up. Not gonna be an echo chamber, though. DS

anon on October 14, 2014 at 9:45 pm

    Apparently, someone at DHS OPENED UP their Clostridium Difficile treatment before swallowing it: (yes, this quote is from Salon, but I also received this data from my Medscape Professional CME as well—the treatment is not bogus, quite effective, but also makes for great headlines) http://www.salon.com/2014/10/14/frozen_poop_pills_could_be_a_potentially_life_saving_treatment/.

      C’mon Debbie, I dug up that story just for you to slam dunk it.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 14, 2014 at 10:08 pm

The real problems of the U.S., Ebola, ISIS, overspending by the government, they don’t want to do anything about. Those are difficult problems. But for global warming or the war on women, they can appoint czars, and create departments, and fund their friends green energy start ups. Allows them to pick winners and losers and expand government.

Mike M on October 14, 2014 at 10:22 pm

The Homeland Security agent in this article has a great sense of humor. I’m sure that comes in handy in his profession.

The global warmists profess to have “science” on their side. However, thinking people know that the “science” of today can often turn out to be the nonsense of yesterday.

Today, the global warmist scamsters have developed the theory that Venus is extraordinarily hot because of “global warming” or a “greenhouse effect.” Sometimes “science” will adopt any theory as long as it isn’t the truth. But before the “scientists” cooked up that “greenhouse effect” theory to explain why Venus is so hot, the same “scientific” crowd argued as late as the 1950s that Venus was much like the Earth in temperature—and they even believed that it could support life.

Enter Immanuel Velikovsky. In the 1950’s, the mainstream scientific community was outraged at the success of his seminal work, “Worlds in Collision,” which also demonstrated that certain events described in the Bible actually occurred, such as the parting of the Red Sea at the time of Exodus. Velikovsky asked a very basic question: “If events such as those described in the Exodus did indeed happen, wouldn’t there be other writings about this, other than the Bible?”
Velikovsky, studied the records of diverse cultures and found that the first holocaust in the Bible, around 1500 B.C., was confirmed. Among the other supporting records were those of Chinese, Mayans, Sumerians, Babylonians, Eskimos, Hindus, and so on.

What caused the awesome series of events at the time of the Exodus? Velikovsky’s continued studies into the matter led him a scientific explanation: the planet Venus was not in existence millions and millions of years ago, as “modern” science claimed. It was actually a newly born planet that started as a comet sprung from the planet Jupiter. That comet came close enough to the Earth at around 1500 B.C. to cause the events described in the Bible and in the records of other cultures throughout the Earth.

At the time, the mainstream science community tried to stop the publication of Velikovksy’s book and several leading astronomers argued that his thesis was impossible because they said Venus’s temperature was comparable to the Earth’s. Velikovksy argued that their assertion was impossible and that Venus had to be very, very hot, as a young planet.

In time, every prediction that Velikovsky made was proven to be correct, when America’s space technology advanced to the extent that Venus and Mars could be explored in much more detail. Among some of his confirmed findings:

1. Venus was extremely hot; about 850 degrees F.
2. Venus would contain an atmosphere of hyrdocarbons.
3. The existence of the Van Allen radiation belt.
4. Strong magnetism on the moon.
5. Radio emission from Jupiter.

Velikovsky’s friend, Albert Einstein, was one of those brilliant thinkers who accepted several of Velikovksy’s ideas. But, unlike Velikovsky, Einstein thought that the heavenly bodies are neutrally charged and that space is free of electricity and magnetism. A few days before Einstein died, Einstein changed his mind when he learned through actual tests that radio noises had been detected on Jupiter, just as Velikovsky said they would. “Worlds in Collision” was open on his desk at the time of his passing.

Today, “modern science” has still not accepted Velikovsky’s work, even though science has proven that they were wrong in the past and Velikovsky was correct. Instead, they’ve invented ad hoc theories to try to explain away Velikovsky’s findings.

As I explained earlier, the “modern” myth that “science” “advances” (primarily from the unsupported ideas of former pop astronomer Carl Sagan) is that Venus is so hot because of “a runaway greenhouse effect,” because of the prevalence of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. But such a notion is absurd for several reasons: (1) there is no evidence whatsoever of sufficient water vapor on Venus to cause such a “greenhouse effect”; and (2) if such a “greenhouse effect” were taking place, there would have to be thermal equilibrium, but the reality is that Venus gives off about 15% more heat than it absorbs from the sun. Mainstream “science,” with a straight face, argues that this 15% differential is an “acceptable” error rate. Anything but the truth in this case.

Ralph Adamo on October 14, 2014 at 11:52 pm

Well, on the assumption that RA is not writing tongue-in-cheek (you never know), if the scientific community as a whole accepts the theories of climate change (or global warming, or whatever they’re calling it today), they should be about ready to accept Velikovsky.

Little Al on October 15, 2014 at 12:22 am

After all, why not? Nancy Snyderman and Michelle Obama are considered medical experts.

Little Al on October 15, 2014 at 12:28 am

    Snyderman is an MD, I believe. Nonetheless, what she did in breaking quarantine is abominable.

    Occam's Tool on October 16, 2014 at 9:39 pm

And I guess we need to look at the positive side of the DHS memo. New career opportunities are being provided for Bob Seger.

Little Al on October 15, 2014 at 12:39 am

Sagan invented the GHE conjecture precisely because he hated Velikovsky. This all dates back to the venus Mariner missions which confirmed that planet’s unexplainable high temperature and confirming Velikovsky’s predictions.

Enter Sagan in desperation to discredit the findings with the fictional Greenhouse nonsense without any workable hypothesis and absolutely without any proof.

And still to this day the GHE nonsense is still presented as proof in itself with no background of scientific method observation and verifiability.

    Great news:

    Obama sez America is a Muslim country.

    He’s not too far off the mark.

    NormanF on October 15, 2014 at 1:31 pm

I never thought this site would be plagued by Velikovsky trolls (or one troll using more than one name), but I guess I shouldn’t complain too much — after all, they (or he) use polite language, do not make threats, and can certainly be viewed more favorably than the Muslim trolls.

Nevertheless, one of the problems of the internet is that people can surf site after site and find fallacious, incomplete, and selective evidence for basically whatever they want. There are no rigorous research methods, and just about any wacko conclusion imaginable can be ‘supported’ by glib reference to unproven or conspiratorial ‘facts’.

I think the dominance of PC is, at least in part, responsible for this. Traditional scholarship has become rightly discredited, and all kinds of cranks are filling the vacuum.

Little Al on October 15, 2014 at 3:29 am

    Let me see if I understand your conclusion:

    Velikovsky “Troll” = Muslim Troll – impolite language – threats

    Well, I suppose that makes sense in some circles, but I suspect that you’re applying the old propaganda technique of throwing in an irrelevant negative association and then attempting to link that to your subject target for the purpose of trying to smear the opposition.

    But you would be better served by actually examining the evidence before leaping to your dismissive conclusory assertions. Velikovsky’s work is thoroughly sourced and documented, which is why “modern mainstream scientists” don’t address those sources and documentation–assuming they were capable of doing so. And if you want to dismiss Velikovsky, you also have to dismiss the independent ancient historical records of such diverse cultures as the Chinese, Mayans, Sumerians, Babylonians, Eskimos, Hindus, and others that support Velikovsky’s arguments.

    And the “modern scientists” have yet to come up with a satisfactory explanation for why Venus is the only planet in the Solar System that rotates backwards. The idea that Venus had nearly collided with Earth is just too unfathomable. But I’m sure they’ll keep trying.

    Ralph Adamo on October 15, 2014 at 3:04 pm

      And if we continue to ignore the dangerous impacts of Global Warming, the inevitable will happen, just like on Venus: the Earth will begin to rotate backwards.

      Ralph Adamo on October 15, 2014 at 3:08 pm

        Despite my conservative leanings, I am a Christian yesterday, today and forever, and only in the United States am I a conservative.

        Having said that, I cannot escape that there is a passage in the Bible about those “who destroy the earth.” Yes, it’s true, you can’t go camping without polluting, you do it every time you do No. 1 and No. 2. But the results of your pollution will be gone in a short while.

        I STILL think, as much as I love airplanes, smart phones, indoor plumbing, high definition TV, and hot and cold running water, that The Industrial Revolution may have been the biggest wrong turn the human race ever made. There is inescapable evidence that The Gold Rush is adversely affecting some of the most fertile farmland in Kaliforniya today, as we speak. The runoff is destined to continue creeping down in to those regions until farming in that once incredibly fertile land is impossible.

        Do some research on CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder), and you’ll find that it may be directly linked to the rush to mass produce GMO crops because of the required quantities destructive pesticides.

        The United States, “breadbasket of the world.” Yes, but at what EVENTUAL cost?

        We (humans) WILL be living differently during the Thousand Years Of Peace after Christ’s return, and whatever humans may live after The Judgment. To what extent there will be industry, “development” of land for cities and towns, volatile chemical production is anybody’s guess. And will there really be air pollution from machines that pour thousands of tons of poisons in to the air on a daily basis in even small regions of the world?

        All that CAN’T be good for the planet, and sooner or later the results of a growing world population WILL overtake the earth’s ability to cleanse itself. We DO need to think about In The Year 2525, because it’s selfish to a bunch of great great great’s of ours not to. It would have been easy for people in times past to not think of 500 years in the future, but some did. And sometimes things are better for it.

        I’d LOVE to pretend that solar panels can really usurp our need for fossil fuels. But as far as I’m concerned, the Ed Begley Jr.’s of the world just make fools of themselves. Try making your house in to the eyesore that he did, just to try and prove he could “get off the grid.” He didn’t, . . . they’re moving, or maybe they already did. You’d get slapped with ordinances and fines for doing that.

        Ed Begley Jr. can afford to mess up the neighborhood’s profile and move to another house when his idiotic premise fails. You can’t. We can’t have our heads in the sand about this, but there IS such a thing as an environmentalist whackjob.

Might as well ask,”How many of you own greenhouses or have gas occasionally “?

Michael on October 15, 2014 at 9:32 am

There are GREENhouse gases—just follow the money!! That’s all it’s about. Politicians and their friends making money taken from taxpayers. Companies, like Solydra, have gone bankrupt, but the executives and their friends in that company became rich. It’s a scam perpetrated by opportunists and encouraged by the sheeple, facts and data are disregarded. Analogous to the “war on poverty.”

unholyone on October 15, 2014 at 10:00 am

I reference the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change. The man-made global warming or climate change is a hoax. The NIPCC is the sane opposition to the wacky IPCC. The executive summary is that there is no man made global warming.

Progressives concern themselves with issues that are designed to promote control over the populace. The concerns are phony. The concern is not the issue, only the control that it will provide when implemented.

This government statement through its commander in chief jokester that we are not at war with Islam is another example.

Does this phoniness just keep happening every day. Alfredo’s list is just a sampling of the ringer we are being pulled through.

Every day is an echo of Reagan’s “there you go again”

Panhandle on October 15, 2014 at 10:12 am

Yes Panhandle, just a sampling, and thanks for the reference. Hey, didja hear they’re bringing up ENRON again?

Yes, it WOULD be comical, if there weren’t 330 million of us that will be so adversely affected by this farce of Distract, Divide and Conquer politics by our elected EMPLOYEES, and their appointed bureaucraps.

It’s a tragicomedy; a terrible mess, and a feeling of looming disaster that is extremely frightening to say the least. To know that every man, woman, child, gender queer, gender neutral, transman, etc. will some day be facing things we have only read about in history books. Things we are used to hearing about other nations going through.

Imagine waking up each day to a toilet, in an apartment building in Queens, that doesn’t work, because there is no running water. Neither do your neighbors’ or anyone in the neighborhood.

Being afraid to go outside to one of the few stores in the neighborhood that hasn’t been cleaned out, or blown up by local anarchy or an invading force. Buildings laying in ruins, bodies everywhere, as you attempt to make your way to a store a neighbor told you about two miles away, where you MIGHT find bottled water, warm soda and a few Kit Kat bars. That is, IF you get there alive, and don’t get stabbed by one of your neighbors who heard the same story and got there at the same time. Because there is no more electricity, the soda in that store is warm.

America, smoke rising from the land, tens of millions dead, people preying on each other, no food, no water, no more indoor plumbing, in BIG CITIES, confused people walking around in shock, many of them not even physically fit to walk far and try to find an area where some semblance of order might still exist.

It CAN happen here. But most Americans don’t believe that. Collectively we ARE spoiled, fat, out of shape, apathetic, uninformed, distracted, and therefore, doomed. And our elected officials and their unelected lackeys continue their fundamental dismantling of “this once great republic” as though some day a cultural sunshine of previously unimagined proportions will break through, and we will all bow down in awe and gratitude at their works.

Meanwhile, the bludgeoning of our intelligence and common sense continues, as we are told to just remember a litany of bullcrap and sound bites, trust the federal government and go back to worrying about whether Tony and Ziva are keeping in touch on NCIS.

Further to that, here’s an expanded list. Let’s just all put our horse blinders back on and repeat after the Demmicans and Republicrats.

Climate change . . . Redskins . . . Haliburton . . . Religion Of Peace . . . condoms . . . climate change . . . Cheney is Satan . . . gluten free . . . Tea Party . . . marriage equality . . . condoms . . . gluten free . . . Redskins . . . marriage equality . . . climate change . . . Israel bad, Islam good . . . gluten free . . . marriage equality . . . indigenous peoples . . . Tea Party . . . Islam good, Israel bad . . . Cheney is Satan . . . Haliburton . . .

I could go on, of course. SEE? Now don’t you feel SO much better. C’mon, admit it, you KNOW you do. DWTS called. They want you in front of your TV. Grab that gluten free TV dinner and get there. Maybe someone will have a wardrobe malfunction. You might even see some Hollywood “side boob.” Ohhhhhhhhh yeah, “side boob.”

Tick, tock, tick, tock, tick, tock . . .

Sean R, I don’t believe the ‘anthropogenic’ part of the global warming, er climate change claims. I believe that it’s beyond the capabilities of mankind to alter the climate for better or worse, and that ultimately, astronomical events are gonna determine that.

The thing about this survey – will the DHS then ask everybody to telecommute, or work from home? I happen to do that in my current job & like it, but given that we’re talking about government employees here, they’ll just sit at home like they’re on a permanent sabbatical. As it is, they do little to no work at work, so if they’re sitting at home, what does one think they’ll be doing?

This is not to denigrate honest people @ ICE or DHS, but who doesn’t know what it means to be in the government employment?

Infidel on October 16, 2014 at 6:27 pm

We can’t be bothered to quarantine West Africa.

But the DHS is in a fighting mood about climate change.

Our government is incompetent in reacting to a potential pandemic but it can rise to the challenge in addressing a non-existent threat.

Cuz our Prez we have nothing to worry about from Ebola. Yeah, sure.
