Virgin Islands AG Rescinds ‘Climate Change’ Subpoena

The subpoena of all materials from climate skeptical organizations was an over-reach and an abuse of power. The Virgin Islands AG has revoked it. But, don’t think this issue is over

(Washington Times) Virgin Islands Attorney General Claude E. Walker has withdrawn his subpoena of the Competitive Enterprise Institute after a rash of criticism over his investigation into climate-change dissenters.

Still, CEI general counsel Sam Kazman said Monday that the free-market think-tank would still push the court for sanctions against Mr. Walker, one of an 17-member coalition of attorneys general pursuing fraud allegations against climate skeptics.

“We are doing so because Walker’s underlying Virgin Islands subpoena remains in effect and, as his local counsel expressly stated, Walker can reinstate the DC [District of Columbia] subpoena whenever he wants,” Mr. Kazman said in a statement.

“More importantly, his withdrawal only strengthens our claim that this subpoena was a constitutional outrage from the very beginning, violating our right to free speech and our donors’ right to confidentiality, and threatening the right of all Americans to express views that go against some party line,” Mr. Kazman said. “This was an abuse of process, plain and simple, and we’re determined to see that Walker faces sanctions for an action whose illegality he refuses to recognize.”

Again, what Walker and other Warmists AGs (who use lots and lots of fossil fuels and energy themselves) are doing is Lawfare, using the legal powers of Government to infringe on the Constitutional Rights of private citizens and groups. It is blatant intimidation, and tyrannical. The Cult of Climastrology doesn’t want to debate the issue, they want to force everyone to accept their views, even using the barrel of the Government powers gun. This was a fishing expedition, one which had no evidence, in an attempt to scare citizens.

Walker shouldn’t be sanctioned: he should be impeached, and possibly jailed for abuse of power.

    Speaking of abuse of power…

    Like a criminal syndicate, the Obama adminstration shakes down banks, funds radical leftist organizations and makes themselves wealthy all the while using the power of the federal government under the guise of the DOJ acting with false pretenses to the law with purely political motivations.

    I have said and will continue to say the lefts agenda is to:

    Legislate, Regulate and if that doesnt work then LITIGATE the right into submission.

    The Soviet Union undertook the re-education of the American masses in the early 60’s realizing they would never win a war against the USA or Nato.

    So what better way then to control the message……..what better way to control the message then by raising good little communists to do their biding. What better way to educate them in the ways of the socialist left then the WESTS own school system.

    Legislate the schools into compliance, Regulate them into compliance and then if they do not adhere……….LITIGATE THEM OUT OF A JOB and get someone who will toe the communist line.

    This is AGW at its very essence…..legislation and regulation is not enough……..lets LITIGATE THEM INTO SILENCE!
