Ed Begley vs Fox's Varney: two establishments men each promoting their own brand of tyranny

Ed Begley vs Varney: two establishments men each promoting their own brand of tyranny


Environmental activist and actor Ed Begley Jr. took part in a raucious exchange with Fox news host Stuart Varney over global warming, with both men chattering over each other and Begley losing all composure.

While many conservatives are using Begley's ridiculous behavior to illustrate the emotionalism and irrationality of leftist global warming proponants, it is important to not characterize Varney as some stalwart of truth and limited government. As usual, the establishment media strives to have people pick "sides' while keeping supposed dissidents on the reservation, falsly promoting the Bristish born FOX news analyst Varney as the reasonable one.

While Varney rightly exposes the fraud of global warming, he otherwise serves as a staunch propagandist for the government lies, wars, and empire on Rupert Murdoch's Fox News. Varney, for example, on the day of the July 7, 2005 purported terrorist attacks in London, participated in a televised exchange with Fox news' Brian Kilmeade in which Kilmeade remarked on Prime Minister Tony Blair's response to the 7/7 attacks, saying the attacks work to our advantage.

"And that was the first time since 9-11 when they should know, and they do know now, that terrorism should be Number 1. But it's important for them all to be together. I think that works to our advantage, in the Western world's advantage, for people to experience something like this together.."
Establishment man Varney replied "It puts the Number 1 issue right back on the front burner right at the point where all these world leaders are meeting. It takes global warming off the front burner. It takes African aid off the front burner. It sticks terrorism and the fight on the war on terror, right up front all over again."

In 2006, Varney continued his shameless promotion of undeclared wars and empire, absurdly claiming that the Iraq war is in America's best interest and that we are 'winning':

"Well, let me put out something positive about Iraq, if I may for a second. Look, we took the fight to the enemy. We divided the enemy. The enemy is now fighting itself. America’s interest is surely being well-preserved and well-protected. We are in a fact, in a way, winning and preserving our interests" [video]

Begley, on the other hand, while promoting the left's tyranny based on the fraud of global warming and promotion of the global carbon tax, does promote the truth about 9/11/01, hosting a symposium in New York on September 11, 2004 in New York entitled Confronting the Evidence - A Call to Reopen the 911 Investigation. That event included renowned speakers Dr. David Ray Griffin, David vonKleist, Barry Zwicker, Webster Tarpley, Dr Robert Bowman, Christopher Bollyn, and many others.

In the most recent exchange with Begley which started with a discussion regarding the hacked e-mails of global warming proponants, Fox's Varney asked Begley's take on the matter. It degenerated into a contentious and amusing clip which in the end, amounts to little more than two establishments men acting in a circus show, with each promoting their own brand of tyranny.

Begley: I think the science is very clear on global warming. .. If these scientists have done something wrong, it will be found out and thei peers will determine it. .. if there are some, cooking of the books that will come out."

Varney: "Senator Inhofe has a list of 700 climate scientists who say this global warming. theyve got problems with the whole theory of global warming. i put it to you...

Begley: "theyre not 700 climate scientists, theres weathermen and other people in there. there are some climate scientists, but peer review is the key..

Varney: "The science is not in

Begley: "it is in!"

Varney: "no.

Begley: "Stewart quit saying that..

Varney: "The debate is not over sir

Begley: "Peer reviewed studied. go to science magazine folks, nature magazine. go to somebody you trust. national geographics. dont get it from you or me..dont get it from rush limbaugh or glenn beck. scientists people with phd after their name.

AT 1:44 Begley starts aggressively pointing and figeting in his chair while arguing the metis of a climate scientists vs a physist who the host referenced.

Varney: "There's no question whatsoever?

Begley: "you can be skeptical , skeptical, but not denial. you guys..

Varnney: "the debate is over?

Begley: "on global warming? the debate is very clear its out there in the scientific community.. community. read peer reviewed studies, peer reviewed thats all you need to do, dont get it from you or me.

The host then remarks that begley lives the 'green life' on a day to day basis personally and asks "why do you have to impose it on me".


Begley: "IMPOSE? why do you have to impose dirty air on me in los angeles.

Varney: "Let me explain,

Begley: "go ahead

Varney: "what im talking about. if cap and trade goes through, im gonna have to have a warning label on my house..

Begley: "stop the scare tactics, there's death panels"

They then continue to talk over each other for about 20 seconds, huff and puffing, with Begley concluding "You should have an energy audit ion your home to make it more effective.. I just had an enegry audit on my home and I reduced my bills by half. why dont you have an energy audit?" They then move on to light bulbs.

Varney: I am not allowed to buy incandescent light bulbs

"when are you not allowed to buy those? what YEAR are you not allowed to buy these,.. what year in the future?" Begley asks, pointing his finger in the hosts face.

Varney: "does it matter? the governments telling me i may not have incandescent light

Begley: "its telling us we cant have smoggy vehicles too the air in LA is half the smog.. half the smog, half the smog..

Varney: "Right into my house? Ed Begely im surprised at you. what kind of American believes that the government should come right into a private home

Begley: "nobodys going to come into your house. we're going to houses...

They then begin the hystrionics again, babbling inconherently over each other:

Varney: "Big screen TV..

Begley: "What is an easy bake oven, the little kid's toy an easy bake oven...

Varney: why do you want to push me around?

Begley: "a light bulb is little a mini toaster.......


Begley: "youre spewing your nonsense here yet again

Varney: "nonsense?

Begley: "I. the air in LA is twice as clean as it was in 1970. why because of good technology

Varney: "that's got nothing to do with global warming

Begley: "it has everything to do with good science..

Varney: "nothing to do with global warming

Begley: "it has everything to do with finance and cleaning up the air, you people said it wouldn't work

Varney: "nothing to do with global warming

Begley: "...we have cleaner air in LA because of the catalytic converter.

Varney: "nothing to do with global warming

Begley: "I know it doesn't but

Varney: Thank you

Begley: "you said it before.. about seat belts and air bags you couldn't possibly afford these things...

Begley: ".. you spew these lies

Varney: "lies?

Begley: "about how much it's gonna cost.

Begley: "do you have an insurance policy on your house?

Varney: "lies?

Begley: "do you have a fire policy on your house. do you have one?

Varney: "yes.

Begley: "why dont you have an insurance policy on global warming that does this. cleans up the air in Houston, Bakersfield and L.A. lessens our dependence...

Varney: "I want to be left alone Ed. I dont want to be pushed around by the govenrment...

Begley: "you're not allowed to destroy the commons, sir. you can be left alone but you cannot destroy the commons.

Varney: you have not proved your point

Begley: destroying the commons is the air, and the ocean. you can do whatever you want but you can not destroy the commons its very old law sir.

Varney: "you know i thought you were all low key when you walked in the studio

Begley: "i thought you were too you were having you tea you're proper Brit i actually like you.

Varney: "Times up Ed Begley

Begley: "Thank you Stuwart

All stores should remove them from their shelves immediately and allow their customers to return their bought copies for a full refund. We must stop the Al Gore's of the world from padding their pockets selling lies.

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Begley can use his UN charter on human rights to have Varney arrested and Varney can use the patriot act to have begley indefinitely detained. Rush and Oberman can then step into their perspective roles and continue the circus.
