WND's Dueling Scaremongering
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily, it seems, just can't decide how it feels about scaremongering predictions.

An Oct. 9 article by Jerome Corsi ridicules White House science czar John Holdren for having once predicted that "1 billion people will die in 'carbon-dioxide induced famines' in a coming new ice age by 2020," which could be avoided if "the government mandated urgent measures to control population, including the possibility of involuntary birth control measures such as forced sterilization." 

But an Oct. 10 article by Bob Unruh approvingly cites the same kind of fearmongering:

Gerald Celente of, says people right now should be bracing for "the greatest recession" which will hit worldwide and will mark the "decline of empire America." Crop failures could be among the minor concerns.

"Here we are in 2012. Food riots, tax protests, farmer rebellions, student revolts, squatter diggins, homeless uprisings, tent cities, ghost malls, general strikes, bossnappings, kidnappings, industrial saboteurs, gang warfare, mob rule, terror," he writes for a quarterly publication that is available through subscription on his website.

Oh, wait, we see now why Unruh gives this a pass -- Celente is blaming all this on Obama:

Now comes his forecast for a global depression and for the United States, "Obamageddon."

Unruh probably wouldn't be reporting Celente's predictions if a Republican president was in office.
