Top 50 Articles of 2009

As we take one final look back on the almost defunct year of 2009, these are the top 50 articles at Dakota Voice during the year, based on the number of hits they received.

Some of these were immensely popular, garnering thousands of fresh hits, even months after they were published.  Readership of Dakota Voice continued to grow this year, as well as increasing throughout the year, so many of the latest articles also became some of the most read articles as more people became aware of this voice of liberty from South Dakota.

The Dakota Voice team also expanded with several syndicated and exclusive authors, bringing fresh perspectives and new insights.

Who knows: maybe you missed one or more of these articles the first time around.  Some of them contain important information you may want to take with you into 201o.  An informed person is an armed person, and an armed person is a difficult person from whom to steal freedom.

Don’t allow liberals and socialists in Washington D.C. to exploit a lack of knowledge  to take your freedoms.

UN Climate Treaty in December 2009 a Threat to US Sovereignty – Just a few days ago, Lord Christopher Monckton gave a speech about the UN Climate Change Treaty at Bethel University in St. Paul, MN. The UN Climate Change Treaty is a treaty that most world governments–including the US–are expected to sign in Copenhagen next month…and it is a great threat to our sovereignty.

NASA Study Shows Sun Responsible for Planet Warming – This report from a surprising source may help to lay global warming skepticism to rest. A study from NASAs Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland looking at climate data over the past century has concluded that solar variation has made a significant impact on the Earths climate. Why is there any continued skepticism that global warming is a natural, cyclic phenomenon?

Survivor of Socialism Has Warning for America – Kitty Werthmann survived seven years under Nazi rule in Austria and the difficult years after World War II before coming to the United States in 1950. She sees many parallels between how the Austrians lost their freedom, and many of the disturbing trends in the United States recently. She gave a speech in Rapid City outlining her concerns.

Not Evil Just Wrong…Or Wrong AND Evil? – Are the apostles of anthropogenic global warming right? Or are they just wrong and not really evil? Or are they actually evil in their desire to deceive the world out of the blessings of safety and health brought by human industry?

Big Bird Asks for the Birth Certificate – When First Lady Michelle Obama went on Sesame Street, Big Bird let her have it about her husband’s socialist tendencies and unanswered questions.

Pro-Life Community Condemns Murder of Abortionist George Tiller – The notorious late-term abortion provider Dr. George Tiller was killed inside his church Sunday morning. Pro-life activists were quick to distance themselves from the killing and condemn it as a “cowardly” act of violence.

Whoopi Goldberg: Apologist for Rape – How can a person excuse the rape of a 13 year old girl? Ask actress Whoopi Goldberg, who thinks it’s no big deal. Those who serve as apologists and minimalists for evil share a level of depravity with those they defend.

Estimating the Size of the 912 D.C. Tea Party Crowd – How can we reasonably estimate the size of the crowd at last Saturday’s D.C. Tea Party with no official tally and so much misinformation floating around? The Heritage Foundation has produced some good estimates based on other events and use of the D.C. Metro system.

Socialists in a Panic Over ClimateGate…to Pass UN Climate Treaty – Now that the cat is out of the bag over Climategate (while the American “mainstream” media is still desperately trying to keep it hush-hush), we hear President Obama is wearing some of the emperor’s new clothes and headed to Copenhagen with the intention of subordinating our free nation to a UN climate change treaty.

Nelson Offutt AFB Blackmail Allegations – In the wake of the firestorm created by the allegation that the White House is blackmailing Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE) with the threat of putting Offutt Air Force Base on the base closure list if he doesn’t vote for the health care bill, 20 senators including Senator John Thune (R-SD) are calling for a probe into the matter.

Leaders Worldwide Call for Probe into Leaked Global Warming Emails – Senator James Inhofe is calling for a probe into the global warming fraud emails and documents which came to light last week. With a cap and trade global warming tax on the table here in the United States, and a UN climate change treaty which would hamstring the U.S. economy, we cannot afford to ignore this compelling evidence that the theory of anthropogenic global warming is a complete fraud.

Susan from Glendale Unloads on Rush Limbaugh Show – Susan from Glendale, California called Rush Limbaugh today and just unloaded on Rush–unloaded her passion for our country and her frustration at seeing our Constitution and our values trampled underfoot in Washington. Limbaugh let her go for a whole segment without interrupting even once. Read the transcript and hear the call.

Obama Extends Federal Benefits to Homosexuals, Pushes Homosexual Agenda – President Obama–the man charged with upholding the laws of our nation–has violated the Federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) by extending benefits to sex partners of homosexual government employees.

Full Video of Lord Monckton’s Speech on Global Warming Hysteria – Lord Monckton: “If the environmental left were really serious about saving the planet from a huge CO2 footprint (which I will show doesnt matter at all) then the first thing they would do is pursue policies that would not, as the extinction of five sixths of your economy would do, make you poor. They would be trying to make everybody rich.”

Chris Matthews: West Point Military Academy is ‘Enemy Camp’ – MSNBC’s Chris Matthews describes the U.S. Army academy at West Point “the enemy camp” when President Obama spoke there about Afghanistan. If the Army academy is the “enemy camp,” what does that make Obama…or Matthews?

December 25 and the Origin of Christmas – Was December 25 just a pagan holiday Christians took for their own religious holiday? Is there any reason to believe December 25 might really be the birthday of Jesus Christ? Some historians, including early church fathers, think there is a good case for December 25 as the actual date for the first Christmas.

Cat Climbs Cops Head During Traffic Stop – This report from WTTG shows footage from the dash camera of Officer Keith Urban police car which captured his attempts to write a ticket while a black cat walked up and kept climbing on him, all the way to the top of Officer Urban’s head.

Obama and Marxism: A Legitimate Question – Some say Barack Obama is a Marxist. Others claim the first group are merely branding Obama with guilt by association. But what if the strength of those associations are too many and too close to ignore? And what if Obama’s statements and actions look and sound like Marxism themselves? What’s the old saying: If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck…

Missouri ‘Judge’ Lets Admitted Child Molester off with Probation – Jarred Elwood in Missouri pled guilty to molesting a girl for 8 years beginning when she was only 6 years old. Elwood pled guilty to charges of first-degree statutory sodomy, child molestation, and enticement of a child. A judge let him off with…probation.

Climategate: Falsified Research Scandal Rocks the UK – The scientific principle of “falsifiability” asserts that “the criterion of the scientific status of a theory is its falsifiability, or refutability, or testability.” Apparently the folks at the Climate Research Unit took a different slant on “falsifiability,” deciding that the only way to prove that their theory was true was simply to falsify the facts.

Henry: Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death – The passion and call of Patrick Henry is as important–and necessary–today as it was more than 200 years ago.

Evangelical Scientists Speak Out on Global Warming Hoax – A group of evangelicals, comprised of scientists, economists and theologians, called the mainstream view of pending catastrophe caused by climate change a hoax at an event Thursday just days ahead of a key U.N.-sponsored climate change conference in Copenhagen.

America’s Institutions of Higher Learning: The Idiot Factory – Steven Crowder goes undercover to look at the idiot factories the typical American university has become. Among the pearls of wisdom: “There were some pressures put on the American people that maybe were unjustified but I also think that those revolutionary people in American history were maybe blowing those issues up a little more.”

Global Warming Profiteers Exposed: AGW Is Not and Never Was a Crisis – No longer can it be credibly argued that global warming is worse than previously thought.

Global Warming Scam To Cost Americans Trillions – The proposed global warming tax-and-spend scam otherwise known as “cap and trade” would be one of the biggest financial assaults ever perpetrated against a free people.

Proof Global Warming has Been Fraud All Along? – News is spreading across the internet like wildfire today that emails from the East Anglia Climate Research “Unit in England (not too far from where I used to live) have been hacked by someone and released on the web.

ClimateGate Sequel: From Russia, With Love – More questions are emerging in the Climategate falsified research scandal, as the Moscow-based Institute of Economic Analysis (IEA) now says that climate warming “scientists” at the Hadley Center for Climate Change may have deliberately falsified Russian climate data. Indeed, some 40 percent of Russia’s territory has been excluded from the UN International Panel on Climate Change global temperature record.

The Obama Self-Portrait – How The One must see himself.

A time for truth on abortion – Are we a people that see the unborn, family, and individuals as all part of the fundamental fabric of life? Or are we a materialistic, secular nation of individuals making political claims on each other?

The Manhattan Declaration, an historic document – We are Orthodox, Catholic, and evangelical Christians who have united at this hour to reaffirm fundamental truths about justice and the common good, and to call upon our fellow citizens, believers and non-believers alike, to join us in defending them. These truths are: 1.the sanctity of human life 2.the dignity of marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife 3.the rights of conscience and religious liberty.

More Bad News on Obama Ed Official Kevin Jennings – As with so many appointments by President Barack Obama, the bad news on Education Department appointee Kevin Jennings keeps coming. Now we learn that he advocates teaching kindergartners that homosexual behavior is normal and healthy, and that children are “being aggressively recruited to become heterosexual in this country.”

The civil rights challenge of our time – Instead of pushing more of the homosexual agenda on America, liberating our kids from the cesspools in our urban areas that we call public schools is the great “civil rights challenge” of our time.

‘The Blind Side’ should trouble as well as inspire – “The Blind Side” is a beautiful new film based on a magnificent and heartwarming true story. But I hope that the many who see it do not simply walk out all aglow. It should also produce concern. This story about hopelessness transformed into achievement should be a typically American story–but is increasingly NOT the case.

The Source of the Children’s Obama Worship Song Video – Have you seen the sickening video of school children singing the praises of Barack Obama in a song reminiscent of “Jesus Loves the Little Children”?

Light Shines on Safe Schools Czar FistGate Scandal – In addition to “Safe School Czar” Kevin Jennings’ other despicable behavior, his homosexual group GLSEN gave school children instructions on things such as “fisting,” urinating on one another, a list of homosexual bars, and more. When will Congress remove this pathetic excuse for an education official?

Speaker of the House Embraces Unconstitutional Government – >You can add Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to the list of leaders in Washington who are far too ignorant (or contemptuous of our Constitution) to be allowed to continue leading our country.

Rasmussen Poll: Large Majority of Americans Oppose Govt Health Care – A recent Rasmussen Reports poll finds that, despite the bull being peddled by President Obama and his liberal minions on television and at town halls across America, the American people get it: 57% oppose single-payer health care and only 32% support it. Fifty-two percent also believe such a system will diminish quality.

D.C. Committee Passes Counterfeit Marriage Bill – A D.C. Council Committee passed a bill Tuesday that would legalize same-sex marriage in the federal district while also providing an exemption for religious groups. The Catholic Archdiocese of Washington said that while the bill exempts religious organizations from performing and providing space for same-sex marriages, it requires them to adhere to city laws prohibiting discrimination against gay men and women. Among the changes the archdiocese fears will be possible under the bill is the forced extension of employee benefits to same-sex married couples.

May your 2010 be a blessed one, filled with liberty and a renewal of the American spirit within us all!

  1. Most of the carbon dioxide emitted by human activity does not remain in the atmosphere, but is instead absorbed by the oceans and terrestrial ecosystems. In fact, only about 45 percent of emitted carbon dioxide stays in the atmosphere.

    However, some studies have suggested that the ability of oceans and plants to absorb carbon dioxide recently may have begun to decline and that the airborne fraction of anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions is therefore beginning to increase.

    Many climate models also assume that the airborne fraction will increase. Because understanding of the airborne fraction of carbon dioxide is important for predicting future climate change, it is essential to have accurate knowledge of whether that fraction is changing or will change as emissions increase.
