Before George H.W. Bush was president, Republicans could count on around 40% of the Jewish vote. But thanks to his anti-Semitic Secretary of State James Baker who was quoted by author John Loftus as saying, “F**k the Jews, they won’t vote for us anyway,” the GOP Jewish vote fell to 11% when Bush #41 ran fore reelection and while it has been inching up since then it still hasn’t reached the 38-40% of the Reagan years and the first Bush #41 election.
Apparently Baker isn’t satisfied with screwing up the Jewish vote for the Republicans, now he wants to drive away the Republicans who would object to any new tax, especially a carbon tax based own the suspect global warming hypothesis. Along with Bush #43’s Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, James Baker who was Reagan’s Treasury Secretary before he ran State for Bush #41, is trying to convince the Trump administration to push through a carbon tax.
Yes, these Republicans – including former Treasury secretaries Hank Paulson and James Baker, former George H. W. Bush and Ronald Reagan administration officials, and others – met with Trump administration officials to try to sell them on the idea of taxing carbon emissions to help save the planet from global warming.
“Climate change poses an unacceptable risk to our climate and to our economy,” Paulson said in a statement. “Putting a price on carbon is by far the most efficient and effective way to restrict emissions.”
Even Baker said that he is “somewhat of a skeptic about the extent to which man is responsible for climate change,” but that the “risks are too great to ignore.”
Perhaps before he calls for a Carbon Tax, Baker should put down his copy of the anti-Semitic classic, “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” and read my recent post about NOAA fudging the climate information to make it seem like the global warming pause that existed since 1998 never happened, or maybe the article about how the study that introduced the claim that 97% of scientists agree with the manmade global warming hypothesis was faked, or even all the scientists who believe that the low sunspot cycle that is just beginning will throw us into a mini-ice age…
