A communist* makes an admission after all these years. From the New York Times:
But on Thursday, Mr. Sobell, 91, dramatically reversed himself, shedding new light on a case that still fans smoldering political passions. In an interview, he admitted for the first time that he had been a Soviet spy.
And he implicated his fellow defendant Julius Rosenberg, in a conspiracy that delivered to the Soviets classified military and industrial information and what the American government described as the secret to the atomic bomb.
What will all the moonbats and Democrat politicians who have defended the Rosenburgs all these years since say now?
* Nowadays they are called “Greens” and “Progressives” — everytime the American people figure out what these groups are really about they reform and change their names. Currently their vanguard groups are ANSWER, World Can’t Wait, and Code Pink.
Earlier today I posted Gone in remembrance of 9/11, but as terrible, as desperate, and as sad as that day and the ones following were it was not something fatal or even terrifying to the overall spirit of America.
America’s courage and steady strengths are indefatigable, unstoppable, persistent – and nothing, nothing can stop that for long. So on 9/11 Islamic terrorists gave us pause but not the lasting blow they really hoped for.
These people don’t appear terrified to me and they sure seem to be enjoying life in the Big Apple, and that’s good for them and great for America because the city that never stops hasn’t stopped.
NEI has an update on what happens when you build wind turbines — you end up using gas. I’m an “all of the above” guy, it’s blue sky for all forms of energy for the next two decades, I don’t know why the pundits aren’t seeing that. 50-70 Petawatt hours of electricity will be needed worldwide by 2050, and who fills that need will be the leading economy of the future. So the T. Boone Pickens plan is ok as long as they aren’t opposing nuclear, which both the wind and natural gas lobbies tend to do.
The energy and environmental lobbies need to all put the knives away and work together to meet that growing demand as robustly and cleanly as possible, this isn’t simple and there’s not one solution. That’s why a great deal more nuclear energy capacity needs to brought online pronto.
From the study NEI cites:
Wind power is clearly not reducing the dependence on imported fuel, contrary to the frequent claims of its proponents. In fact the experience from Germany and Spain shows that it is increasing the dependence of imported natural gas. And that’s not energy security.
