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.

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.

Journalists incurious in 2008 about Barack Obama’s college grades, and how he got into Harvard Law School, or his associations with radical Islamists are morbidly curious about why Scott Walker dropped out of Marquette University, and with what he believes about evolution.

“As Scott Walker mulls White House bid, questions linger over college exit,” wrote Paul Farenthold in the Washington Post Feb. 11.

The questions linger only in Mr. Farenthold’s feverish imagination. Gov. Walker said left Marquette because the Red Cross offered him a good job. Unlike Barack Obama, he gave his college permission to release his academic records. He was a student in good standing when he left, Marquette confirmed.

For conservatives, who value accomplishment, this is a non-issue. Scott Walker has had a successful career, despite not having a college diploma. Dropouts Steven Jobs (Apple) and Bill Gates (Microsoft) have done all right too.

But for liberals, who value credentials, not having a college degree indicates stupidity (if the dropout is a Republican).

The difference between credentials and actual knowledge and accomplishment was starkly illustrated last week by Deputy State Department spokesperson Marie Harf.

Americans believe our nation is facing some substantial challenges. Government spending is out of control. Terrorists seek to destroy our way of life. Our economic recovery has been slow. Our borders aren't secure. The federal government has usurped powers that rightly belong to our states.

And every day across Wisconsin, and as I travel the nation, I hear from people who share with me their worries about - and their hopes for - our country.

They worry about whether their children in college will be able to find a good job after graduation. And as a dad with two sons in college, I worry right along with them.

They talk to me about...

So Rajendra Pachauri has finally announced his resignation from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) - a decision at once momentous and spectacularly irrelevant.

It's momentous because the IPCC is one of the world's most powerful organizations, with presidents and prime ministers across the globe in thrall to its prognostications of climate doom, and the fate of nations and economies partly decided by its ongoing insistence (against all evidence) that "global warming" remains a credible crisis which can only be solved by throwing stupendous quantities of taxpayer money at it.

And it's spectacularly irrelevant because the bearded, cricket-loving, ice-shunning groper was never more than an empty figurehead, probably chosen - a bit like UN Secretaries General - because he fitted the right ethnic and socio-political profile rather than because he had a particular skill set which qualified him especially for the job.

He was, after all, a railway engineer by training, not a physicist or a meteorologist or a climatologist. I'm not making this up.

An American friend recently sent me a gift here in England as a thank you for a weekend's hospitality. It arrived in the form of a card from the Post Office telling me to pay a hefty sum of tax before the item itself (a wooden bowl) could be delivered.

Had my friend been Scottish or French or from the next village there would have been no charge. What business has government putting a tariff barrier between two friends?

Last week the British Conservative party chairman Grant Shapps delivered a passionate defense of free trade of the kind that used to come from the radicals in the days of the Corn Laws 200 years ago but these days is rarely heard from any part of the political spectrum. Crucially, he took the perspective of the consumer, not the producer.

The free trade debate that used to be such a huge part of British politics is re-emerging because of the trade agreement being negotiated between the United States and the European Union, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership or TTIP. It's driving the Lefties batty.  That's fun and here's why.

How would you feel if you had to have bodyguards anytime you moved about — not because you were a voluntary celebrity, such as a presidential candidate or movie star, but merely because you exercised your free speech right by publishing cartoons that some found offensive?

Danish journalist Flemming Rose published cartoons of Muhammad in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten back in 2006, which led to many violent riots by Moslems around the world. He has written a book, “The Tyranny of Silence: How One Cartoon Ignited a Global Debate on the Future of Free Speech” (the English edition was just published by the Cato Institute Press).

Mr. Rose, rather than hiding, even though a fatwa has been leveled against him calling for his death, has traveled and spoken widely in his unrelenting advocacy of free speech and against the tyranny of silence. He has argued that “the lesson from the Cold War is: If you give in to totalitarian impulses once, new demands follow.  The time is now to shut down Islamic Terrorism's financial network.

Foremost in the news this week were more atrocities by Islamic terrorists, more frantic efforts by President Barack Obama and his minions to deny Islam has anything to do with Islamist terror.

ISIS is very much Islamic, writes Graeme Wood in a long, must read analysis in the Atlantic. It scared the bejeebers out of a liberal colleague at the Post-Gazette, who wanted to make sure I saw it.

There are moderate Muslims willing to fight ISIS, but Zero won't help them.

The way to defeat ISIS is with a jobs program, said Marie Harf, the dumber one in the State Department's Dumb and Dumber tag team of spokessluts.

A federal judge in Texas has temporarily blocked Obama's illegal amnesty plan.

Obamacare has a nasty surprise in store for millions of Americans.

Can a Republican be elected to the U.S. Senate from California? Can pigs fly? (Maybe.)

BURMA NOTES Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler   
Thursday, 19 February 2015

Inle Lake, Burma.  This is the first of a "Notes" series, a running commentary on where I am as I make my way across the world to the Vegas Rendezvous in late April.  We start in Burma, where I have been for the past week.  These are my impressions so far.

*Burma - 25 years ago the socialist military dictatorship insisted the name be changed to "Myanmar," but I along with most everyone else still call it Burma - is just emerging from a hermit socialism isolated from the world, and at a breakneck pace. 

The contrast can be jarring.  You see oxcarts with the farmer holding the reins to the oxen in one hand, and making a cell phone call with the other.  But overall, the "energy" of Burma is one of gentle serenity.  Even in Rangoon where the traffic is horrendous, there's no road rage of any kind, no honking horns.

Outside of Rangoon, almost no one drives fast, frantic to get where they are going.  People proceed at a measured pace, they don't race; everyone makes room for everyone, whether an oxcart, a pedicab, a motorbike, car, bus or truck.  Every smile is returned, and every wave.  It's easy to see why the British fell in love with Burma - it's the people, their gentleness, their serenity of soul.

This might not be a good time to remind New Englanders digging out from a “Biblical” series of storms that a year ago this month a writer in the New York Times predicted “the end of snow.”

In 8 of 14 winters since the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said “milder winter temperatures will decrease heavy snowstorms,” the snow extent in North America has been greater than average, according to the Global Snow Lab at Rutgers University.

Last year was the earth’s warmest since 1880, said NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies Jan. 16.

Which was odd, because according to the National Climatic Data Center, last winter was the coldest since 2009-2010; last summer the coolest since 2009. Temperatures recorded at stations of the Global Historical Climatology Network from Jan. 1 through May 6 were the lowest ever.

How do the coldest winter and summer in four years, the coldest Spring ever recorded add up to the warmest year?

They don’t.  Here's how science has disgraced itself with warmist deceit.

There are decades of stories about corporations, movie actors, artists and politicians hiding money from the taxman. Many economic studies have shown that once tax rates exceed 20 percent, most people will start thinking about and then acting in legal or illegal ways to avoid the tax bill.

The reason there is so little remorse about tax avoidance and evasion is that virtually everyone knows that much of what government does is a ripoff. If people really believed that "government is underresourced" and spends its money wisely, they would not take legal charitable and other deductions when they file their income taxes.

The president's buddy, Al Sharpton, is welcome at the White House almost any time, even though the Internal Revenue Service reportedly claims he owes millions in unpaid taxes.  If Mr. Sharpton had robbed a supermarket of a mere $10,000, it is unlikely he would be welcome at the White House.
The message is obvious. The government even tells us that federal employees, including thousands at the IRS, owe billions in back taxes, yet little is done. At the same time IRS leaders have the unmitigated gall to demand larger budgets.

Every thinking person implicitly knows that the U.S. government is the world's biggest financial fraudster.  Here's what to do about it.

Barack Obama is mainstreaming anti-Semitism in America.

Last week (2/09), apropos of seemingly nothing, in an interview with Mathew Yglesias from the website, Obama was asked about terrorism. In his answer the president said the terrorism threat is overrated. And that was far from the most disturbing statement he made.

Moving from the general to the specific, Obama referred to the jihadists who committed last month's massacres in Paris as "a bunch of violent vicious zealots," who "randomly shot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris."

In other words, Ahmedy Coulibaly, the Moslem terrorist at Hyper Cacher, the kosher supermarket he targeted, was just some zealot. The Jews he murdered while they were shopping for Shabbat were just "a bunch of folks in a deli," presumably shot down while ordering their turkey and cheese sandwiches.

Obama's statement about the massacre of Jews in Paris is notable first and foremost for what it reveals about his comfort level with anti-Semitism.  The bottom line is that he is embracing anti-Semitism and Islamic fascism more nakedly by the day.  Let us count the ways.
HAIL SHALE GAS! Print E-mail
Written by Matt Ridley   
Tuesday, 17 February 2015

I don't know about you, but I have been especially glad of my gas-fired central heating and hot water in the past few frigid weeks.

Gas really is rather special: it provides us here in Britain with 84 per cent of our domestic heat, 27 per cent of our electricity, much of the feedstock for our synthetic consumer products, and pretty well all of the nitrogen fertilizer that has fed the world and largely banished famine.

Although we import half of it, beneath Lancashire and Yorkshire, in the Bowland shale, lies one of the richest gas resources ever discovered, just 10 per cent of which would be enough to provide nearly 50 years of British needs.

The technology to get it out involves using water and sand to make cracks that are a millimeter wide in rocks that are a mile and a half down. A month's work leads to 25 years of gas flow from a quiet box of tricks that can be hidden behind a hedge.

No need to festoon the hills with permanent concrete bases for 400ft towers of steel trying to suck a sparse trickle of energy out of the wind on a cold, calm day.

Shale gas extraction is a process that has proved very safe and clean in the United States. It has had virtually no impact on groundwater, earthquakes or surface pollution anywhere. These are exaggerated myths constantly repeated by the wealthy multinational pressure groups such as Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth, by wealthy fashion designers and their nimby friends in gin-and-jag country, and by Vladimir Putin and other Russians with an interest in expensive gas.
