John Beale, “climate change” expert, the highest-paid employee of the Environmental Protection Agency, all-around kook, has pleaded guilty to defrauding the government out of about a million dollars in salary and perks. (See “Surreal: EPA’s Leading Climate Change Expert Pleads Guilty to Elaborate Fraud,” by Guy Benson at townhall.com, Dec. 17, 2013.)
There are lies, damned lies, and amazing colossal whoppers.
To get out of doing his real job, Mr. Beale told his bosses at the EPA that he was busy spying for the CIA in Pakistan. He raked in hundreds of thousands of dollars in phony expenses and unearned bonuses, sometimes taking junkets to London, where he stayed in five-star hotels and rode around in hired limos. The rest of the time, he hung out at his Cape Cod vacation home. He also lied that he’d caught malaria while serving in Vietnam, although he never had malaria and had never been to Vietnam.
Beale could be sentenced to at least 30 months in prison, unless his lawyer succeeds in getting him excused on the grounds of sheer balminess.
Mr. Beale did not claim to have invented the Internet; nor did he claim that he and Mrs. Beale were the inspiration for Erich Segal’s “Love Story.” The climate change expert who makes those claims is still at large.
Folks, God must be really, really mad at us, to have given our country into the hands of the liars, lunatics, thieves, and scoundrels who govern every aspect of it today. Just as He gave Israel to the Assyrians, and Judah to the Babylonians, He has sent us into captivity–captivity in our own country, administered by our own politicians, judges [Hey, did you know polygamy is now OK? Last week a federal judge said so!], noozies, “educators,” and all the rest.
Confess, repent, and pray for deliverance.
Pray very, very hard.
