Senator James Inhofe:

Top Terrorist Threat to Planet Earth
http://pnews.org/ArT/AiS/Inhofe.shtml

"With all of the hysteria, all of the fear, all of the phony science, could it be that man-made global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people? It sure sounds like it." Senator James Inhofe

From humble beginnings as Tulsa mayor and a small business man, Senator James Inhofe has morphed into one of the most dangerous neocons and right wing extremists of our time. On the front lines of Bush's war against civil liberties, peace, and the environment, Inhofe is leading the drive to plunge the planet into chaos and destruction for the glory and profits of the military megamachines and transnational corporations. Behind the flattering self-portrait Inhofe paints in his autobiography lies a profoundly ignorant, corrupt demagogue and power-mongering shill for Bush, the war against Iraq, and global corporate plunder. Online news magazine, Slate , wrote that Inhofe is "widely considered one of the dumbest members of Congress," but should have added he is also one of the most dangerous.

Inhofe was elected to the Senate in 1994, and re-elected in 1996 and again in 2002. A champion of Israel, corporate power, and the war on Iraq, Inhofe is a member of the Senate Armed Services committee. A militant anti-environmentalist, he has presided as Chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee (EPWC) since January 2003.

Thus, Inhofe is a key player in the crucial matters of national security and environmental policies. In 2005, these two roles came together symbiotically in his assault on the animal rights and environmental movements as criminal, extremist, and terrorist forces who must be stopped in their tracks. In June, Inhofe held a special hearing on the theme that aboveground animal advocacy groups such as the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are front groups for the Animal Liberation Front (ALF), an underground organization devoted to illegal raids to free captive animals and property destruction against animal exploiters(1). In October, Inhofe called another session to hear more of the same FBI and industry testimony against the direct action group, Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC). His goal was to whip up support for his effort to criminalize legal tactics that have proven effective against the vile chemical testing company, Huntington Life Science(2).

With gavel grasped in his greedy clutches, Inhofe is the Senator Joseph McCarthy of the day. Whereas McCarthy presided over the Red Scare of the 1950s that attacked communists as threats to national security, Inhofe spearheads the Green Scare of our day that vilifies ecoterrorists as a menace to the American Way. As McCarthy chaired the powerful House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), Inhofe lords over the influential Environment and Public Works Committee. What McCarthy did to civil liberties, Inhofe seeks to revive, as he updates McCarthy's persecutorial policies for the current era locked in struggle over the rights of nature. Ultimately, however, Inhofe is far more menacing than his fascist predecessor Joseph McCarthy, as Inhofe's offenses against democracy and the constitution extend to crimes against nature and all future species who require a viable planet to live.
