THE POLITICAL ASSAULT ON GLOBAL WARMING SKEPTICS Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Richard Lindzen   
Wednesday, 11 March 2015

Research in recent years has encouraged those of us who question the popular alarm over allegedly man-made global warming.

Actually, the move from "global warming" to "climate change" indicated the silliness of this issue. The climate has been changing since the Earth was formed. This normal course is now taken to be evidence of doom.

Individuals and organizations highly vested in disaster scenarios have relentlessly attacked scientists and others who do not share their beliefs. The attacks have taken a threatening turn.

World leaders are embarking on costly policies that have no capacity to replace fossil fuels but enrich crony capitalists at public expense, increasing costs for all, and restricting access to energy to the world's poorest populations that still lack access to electricity's immense benefits.

Billions of dollars have been poured into studies supporting climate alarm, and trillions of dollars have been involved in overthrowing the energy economy. So it is unsurprising that great efforts have been made to ramp up hysteria, even as the case for climate alarm is disintegrating.

Which is why skeptics on climate alarmism are being politically targeted, myself among them.

CALL IT CLIMATE FASCISM Print E-mail

The latest Warmist campaign is that scientists and journalists who mislead the public about ‘global warming' should be banned from television.

So says the producer of a highly tendentious and misleading new eco-propaganda movie about global warming, apparently blissfully unaware of the irony of his position.

Robert Kenner is the producer of Merchants of Doubt, a documentary which seeks to claim that climate skepticism is nothing but a fossil-fuel-funded conspiracy coordinated by the same kind of cackling evil-doers who tried to persuade you that smoking doesn't cause cancer.

Like the Obama administration, the movie takes for granted the notion that catastrophic man-made climate change is real, that all the scientists promoting the theory are reliable, honest and principled, and that the only possible reason anyone might have for claiming otherwise is that they are "merchants of doubt" - i.e., corrupt disinformers who deliberately and cynically seek to hide the truth about global warming from the public because they have been paid to do so by sinister corporate interests.

Now Kenner has written a public letter to one of his fellow celebrity alarmists, scientist-turned-filmmaker Randy Olson, to help promote his crappy film raise awareness in the media of the very serious issue of Big Oil funded denialism.

The letter says:

BIBI PAVES THE WAY TO END OBAMA'S BOOTLICKING IRAN Print E-mail
Written by Caroline Glick   
Tuesday, 10 March 2015

South Korea lives under a US security umbrella. Both on a conventional and nuclear level, South Koreans are dependent on the US to deter North Korea from attacking them and overrunning their country. 

Last Friday 3/06), US Under Secretary of State Wendy Sherman scolded South Koreans for being too nationalist. In her words, "Nationalist feelings can still be exploited, and it's not hard for a political leader anywhere to earn cheap applause by vilifying a former enemy."

The South Koreans interpreted her remarks as criticism of their President Park Geun-hye for her refusal to reinstate reunification talks with North Korea due to Pyongyang's refusal to discuss the dismantlement of its nuclear program.

Sherman negotiated the US's nuclear pact with North Korea in the 1990s. The North Koreans used the deal as a smokescreen behind which they developed nuclear weapons while receiving financial assistance from the US which paid off the regime for signing the deal.

Once Pyongyang was ready to come out as a nuclear power, it threw out the nuclear inspectors, opened the sealed nuclear sites, vacated its signature on the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and began testing nuclear bombs.

Sherman is now the US's chief negotiator in the P5+1 nuclear talks with Iran. She;s having hissy fits because Bibi Netanyahu has ruined her plans.

RATING THE PUB CONGRESS Print E-mail

Tuesday, 10 March 2015

How would you measure congressional success?

Even though the new Congress is only two months old, there has been much criticism of both the leadership and the members. The Republicans promised to reduce government spending, reform the tax code, and reduce the regulatory burden.

There are objective ways to measure whether they will have reduced government spending.

Total government spending includes the amount state and local governments spend, some of it transfer payments from the federal government, money spent by the federal government on defense, interest, "entitlements," including Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps and all other federal government programs.

Despite most of the entitlements being labeled "mandatory spending," in fact, Congress can alter these programs and thus can determine how much is spent on them.

In order to measure whether Congress is indeed reducing spending, it is important to establish the appropriate baseline. In this table, I have taken total government spending minus the amount that state and local governments raise and spend on their own.

HALF-FULL REPORT 03/06/15 Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Friday, 06 March 2015

The House of Representatives passed a "clean" bill funding the Department of Homeland Security (a complete capitulation to the Democrats) Tuesday (3/3), even though more than two thirds of Republicans voted against it. I don't see how Speaker John Boehner can survive a defection of that magnitude.

Bibi Netanyahu gave a boffo speech to a joint session of Congress Tuesday (3/3). Thanks to Zero's ham fisted efforts to stop it, Bibi's speech became a much bigger deal than it otherwise would have been.

The "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" narrative of those protesting the shooting of Michael Brown is true - except for the "hands up, don't shoot" parts.

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments Wednesday on King v. Burwell, the lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of paying Obamacare subsidies to people who purchased policies on the federal exchange.

The tenor of the questions he asked inclined observers left and right to think swing Justice Anthony Kennedy is likely to support the administration's position. Kennedy was giving the libs a head fake, David Catron thinks.

Did you know that eating three meals a day is racist? Neither did I.

With the revelation Monday that Hillary Clinton used a private email account on an insecure server located in her Chappaqua home -- which, experts say, almost certainly has been hacked by hostile foreign intelligence services -- to conduct most of her official business as secretary of state, she's stepped in a pile of doo doo so deep and smelly not even the Lying Swine may be able to save her.

Panicking Democrats would like to go elsewhere, but there bench is too thin - so thin some are talking about bringing back Al Gore.

OBAMA AGREES WITH IRAN: "DEATH TO AMERICA!" Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Wednesday, 04 March 2015

Tiger Leaping Gorge, Yunnan, China.  I am thousands of miles away from my country feeling like Obi-wan Kenobi in the original Star Wars movie. 

He suddenly feels faint and has to sit down, as he senses a "massive disruption in the Force" with millions of lives snuffed out somewhere in the galaxy.  Darth Vader's Death Star has just obliterated an entire planet with everyone on it.

I am feeling like Obi-wan right now as I just learned the Boehner House passed full funding for DHS yesterday (3/03) 257-167.  Every single Dem voted yes, along with 75 Rinos. In completely and totally caving to Zero's Executive Amnesty, it was a Death Star vote, a vote to kill America.

Phyllis Schlafly, my friend of decades, is precisely correct when she says, Democrats Plan to Win Elections with Illegal Votes. This is Zero's game plan to establish rule Democrat Fascist rule and kill freedom in America.

It is ironic in the extreme that hours after Boehner's Death Star vote yesterday, Bibi Netanyahu gave a brilliantly heroic speech to Congress.  The link is the complete text of his speech, an absolute Must-Read. 

The horrible irony, the hideous truth, is that Zero wants desperately to make a deal with Iran because his and Iran's goal is the same: Death to America!

THE CHURCHILL OF OUR TIME Print E-mail
Written by Jack Kelly   
Thursday, 05 March 2015

Normally what politicians say matters much less than what they do.  But sometimes at a critical moment in history, a great speech by a great leader can bolster resolve to do what must be done.

“Our policy… “is to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime,” said Winston Churchill on May 13,1940, three days after he’d replaced Neville Chamberlain as prime minister.

 “We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender,” he said June 4.  After the war, in 1946 Sir Winston warned that “from Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic, an iron curtain has descended across (Europe).”

Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to a joint session of Congress Tuesday (3/3) was Churchillian. He is the Churchill of our time. The contrast between Bibi and Obama could not be more stark.

WILL CHINA JUMP OFF A FISCAL CLIFF? Print E-mail
Written by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard   
Thursday, 05 March 2015

Nobody can fault China's leaders for lack of bravery. The Politburo has kept its nerve as the world's most giddy experiment in credit-driven growth faces assault on three major fronts at once.

Real interest rates have rocketed. The trade-weighted rise in the yuan over the past two years has been spectacular. Fiscal policy is about to tighten drastically as the authorities clamp down on big-spending local governments.

Put together, China is pursuing the most contractionary mix of economic policies in the G20, relative to the status quo ante. Collateral damage is already visible in the sliding global prices of iron ore, copper, nickel, lead and zinc over recent months, as well as thermal coal, oil, corn and even sugar.

Zhiwei Zhang, from Deutsche Bank, says China faces a "fiscal cliff" this year as Beijing attempts to rein in spending. "This year, China will likely face the worst fiscal challenge since 1981. This is not well recognized in the market," he said.

Another indicator: China is no longer buying US Treasuries and global bonds. It has become a net seller, stepping in to offset accelerating outflows of capital. The capital deficit reached a record $91bn in the fourth quarter.

MASS DEFAULT ONLY SOLUTION TO WORLD DEBT ADDICTION Print E-mail
Written by Jeremy Warner   
Wednesday, 04 March 2015

In a valedictory speech last weekend of characteristically Latin American duration - a mind-numbing three hours - the Argentine president, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, claimed that her country was the only one in the world to have reduced its national debt over recent years.

Only Kirchner could think this a matter of national pride - for reduction in the national debt via the mechanism of default is anything to boast of.  

Nonetheless, where Argentina treads, others will surely soon be following. The world is sinking under a sea of debt, private as well as public, and it is increasingly hard to see how this might end, except in some form of mass default.

This most certainly includes China, by the way.  China's total indebtedness has quadrupled since 2007 to $28 trillion, according to estimates by McKinsey. At 282% of GDP, China's debt burden is now bigger, relative to output, than the US.

THE LIBERAL CIRCUS Print E-mail
Written by Victor Davis Hanson   
Tuesday, 03 March 2015

Lately liberalism has gone from psychodrama to farce. 

Take Barack Obama. He has gone from mild displeasure with Israel to downright antipathy. Who would have believed that Iranian leaders who just ordered bombing runs on a mock U.S. carrier could be treated with more deference than the prime minister of Israel?

Hillary Clinton likewise has gone from a rather run-of-the-mill liberal grandee to a political grafter.  The problem with Hillary's scandals are not just that they reveal a lack of character, but that they are illiberal to the core on hallmark progressive issues of concern for equality, transparency and feminism.

Attorney General Eric Holder came into office alleging racism and calling the American people cowards, and six years later is exiting, still blaming racism for his own self-inflicted failures. He leaves office as a caricature of incompetence and racial divisiveness.

Conspiracists once warned us that the government was buying up ammo to prevent private gun owners from purchasing it; now we learn that Obama by executive order may ban the most popular type of sporting ammunition. 

So - why this descent into travesty?

A SAMPLE OF THE WORLD A YEAR FROM NOW Print E-mail
Written by Richard Rahn   
Tuesday, 03 March 2015

The world is a mess, but what will it look like a year from now? No one knows with certainty, but informed guesses can be made, in part, based on the direction of the economies in conflicted areas of the world. 

Global debt (including that of the United States) is now a higher percentage of global gross domestic product than it was before the Great Recession that began in December 2007, making the world increasingly vulnerable to a new financial crisis.

Here is a sample of countries that are facing economic problems and foreign policy conflicts, with the exception of Switzerland - which is included as a benchmark for good government, and economic and personal liberty. What will they be like in 12 months?

Details leaked this week of the deal President Obama wants to make with the mullahs in Iran. 

The U.S. military no longer can fight two wars at the same time.

Normally, what politicians say matters a whole lot less than what they do (or don't do). But there are times when a great speech by a great leader can bring clarity to the confused, hope to the despairing, bolster the resolve of a people to do what must be done at a critical moment in history.

2014 was the biggest year for terror in 45 years.

The Conservative Political Action Conference began Thursday.  The most popular speaker so far has been Scott Walker.  Now that he's clearly the frontrunner, the Lying Swine have been going after him hammer and tongs.

THE WAGES OF WHITE GUILT Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 26 February 2015

Mandalay, Burma.  This is a country struggling to enter the 21st century after being stuck in the 19th for the last half of the 20th. 

One of the results is an Internet that barely functions.  I have heard little of what is going on in the US and the world save for headlines, which are so irretrievably awful that I'm glad I'm isolated here or else my head would explode.

I'll keep this short.  Everything you are seeing right now with America coming apart at the seams at the hands of this Affirmative Action President has one and only one cause:  they are the wages of white guilt.

The one and only reason this evil, contemptible America-hating fascist has not been impeached for treason, the only reason anyone paid any attention to him whatever such that he was accepted to Harvard, made Editor of the Harvard Law Review, allowed to teach a course at Columbia, ran for Illinois State Senator, ran for Illinois US Senator, ran for the Dem presidential nomination, excused for attending a racist church for 20 years that prayed for God to damn America, got elected president, and re-elected president is the color of his skin.

Absolutely none of this whatever would have happened if his skin were white.
