Climate Change’s Ever-Shifting Goalposts
American Greatness, by Julie Kelly

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 10/11/2018 8:59:23 AM

A new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change offers a timely reminder that much of the Left’s doomsday hysteria can be traced to the modern-day environmental movement. Like Democrats’ dire warnings that everything from tax cuts to net neutrality will result in mass casualties, the climate cabal’s Grim Reaper estimates are not just wrong and constantly changing—they defy reality. Ever since Donald Trump wisely scuttled the meaningless Paris Climate Accord last year, climate alarmists have been desperate to revive the public’s interest in this once-dominant political issue. As concern about climate change has waned,

Comments:
This may be the best article on this subject that I have ever read.

Missing our nightly baseball games, we landed in error on the BBC last night, where a mindless type, posed in front of the ubiquitous bookshelf, was expounding in all seriousness that Hurricane Michael was “evidence” that humans were causing climate change ergo global warming. We didn’t stay around for the punchline.

Weren´t we supposed to be under water by now? Or was it that the country would turn into a desert and we would all starve because the crops would die? It´s hard to keep track of the left´s predictions of doom and gloom that are certain to occur if we don´t keep giving them money and political power.

2 days before Hurricane Michael made landfall the “scientific consensus” e.g. the forecast was it would be a Cat 3 storm. If fact, at landfall it was nearly a Cat 5. Yet we are asked to believe climate estimates based on arbitrary temperature thresholds, imprecise data and decade-long timelines?

"The public’s interest in this once-dominant political issue"? No, it was never a dominant issue. Very few people give a rat´s patoot about this issue.

Reprieve! Reprieve!

Gullible Warmists have changed their prediction from "We´re all going to die in 27 years" - - to "We´re all going to die in 29 years."

Thank goodness - - another two years for all of us!

If you want to cool the Planet - dump powdered Iron into the oceans. This will cause a plankton bloom and significantly raise the numbers of fish, too.

(When we killed most of the whales, we interupted the natural iron distribution into the oceans from Whale poop.)

One warning: Fertilizing the Oceans with iron, might cause the temperatures to drop too much.

The Gorbull warmingists won´t be satisified until the "first world" is reduced to shuffling around barefoot crapping in the streets, like, you know, San Fransisco.


Wait... No they won´t. They´ll never be satisfied.

50 years ago we were facing another ´´Ice Age´´. Crops would fail, water would be locked up in ice, millions would die from freezing...

Now, the left hijacked the climate change movement with global warming, which is supposed to be worse than an Ice Age! By the way, the climate does warm between the several Ice Ages Earth has endured.

Pat Caddell – Pollster, Populist,
and Patriot – Dies at 68
Breitbart Politics, by Rebecca Mansour    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 2/16/2019 10:51:12 PM     Post Reply
Veteran pollster Pat Caddell passed away Saturday at his home in Charleston, SC, at the age of 68. Caddell was a Breitbart News contributor and regular guest on Breitbart’s SiriusXM radio programs. His willingness to challenge conventional political wisdom – combined with his decades of campaign experience – set him apart as a strategist who got things right when so many others got them wrong. This was strikingly obvious in 2016, when Caddell was the sole pollster to understand Donald Trump’s voters and the New York builder’s path to victory. (Snip)Caddell became famous for helping elect another outsider.

Heather Nauert withdraws from
consideration as UN ambassador

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Saturday she has withdrawn from consideration as UN ambassador. President Donald Trump had previously announced he was picking Nauert, but the formal nomination had not been sent to the Senate. "I am grateful to President Trump and Secretary Pompeo for the trust they placed in me for considering me for the position of US Ambassador to the United Nations. However, the past two months have been grueling for my family and therefore it is in the best interest of my family that I withdraw my name from consideration.

   

 



 
The Navy Just Ordered the ´Orca,’
an Extra-Large Unmanned
Submarine by Boeing
Popular Mechanics, by Kyle Mizokami    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 2/16/2019 4:56:28 PM     Post Reply
The U.S. Navy has awarded a contract to Boeing for four Extra-Large Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (XLUUVs). In other words: giant drone subs. The unmanned submarines, called Orcas, will be able to undertake missions from scouting to sinking ships at very long ranges. Drone ships like the Orca will revolutionize war at sea, providing inexpensive, semi-disposable weapon systems that can fill the gaps in the front line—or simply go where it’s too dangerous for manned ships to go. The contract, announced today, stipulates Boeing will get $43 million for “fabrication, test, and delivery of four Orca

Dickinson Student Newspaper:
‘The Idea of the White Man Has

Dickinson College in Pennsylvania published an op-ed in its student newspaper claiming that the world needs to be saved from “the white man,” arguing that white men have “become obsolete” and “have yet to demonstrate any collective competence in treating people as human beings.” An op-ed entitled, “How Do We Save the World From the White Man?” was published Thursday in the student newspaper for Dickinson College, The Dickinsonian. In the piece, the author argues that “the idea of the white man” should be dismantled “wherever it tries to manifest itself.”

Kentucky Senate Passes Fetal
Heartbeat Abortion Ban

The Kentucky Senate voted 31–6 Thursday to advance legislation that would ban most abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected — usually six or seven weeks into pregnancy. The Republican Party of Kentucky posted on Twitter: The Kentucky State Senate just passed the "Fetal Heartbeat Bill" banning abortions after a child in the womb has a detectable heartbeat! Now the bill heads to the House for further consideration. A great step forward for the pro-life movement! #kyga19 https://t.co/adlEWUZf9Q — Kentucky GOP (@KYGOP) February 14, 2019

It has been two and a half weeks since Jussie Smollett reported that he was the victim of a hate crime, and in that time, his story has fallen apart completely. (snip) the home of the two "persons of interests" in the widely circulated community alert was raided by Chicago police. In that raid, they seized a list of items including multiple containers of bleach, a "red hat," an Empire script, a Mossberg rifle, and two computers. The home is occupied by the two men, and at least one is an extra on Jussie Smollett´s show, Empire.

Friday on KABC radio in Los Angeles, conservative commentator Ann Coulter reacted to President Donald Trump saying she was “off the reservation,” during his press conference this morning. Explaining that building the border wall was Trump’s mandate, Coulter said, “It was one thing, the promise he made every single day at every single speech.” She added, “So forget the fact that he’s digging his own grave. This is just — look the only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.” Coulter did praise the president regarding the courts by saying, “In defense of Trump supporters and those who fell for his

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black. I was born black. I will die black,”

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

   

 



 
How Dumb is Ocasio-Cortez?

Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

MUNICH — Speaking on German soil 75 years after the U.S. and its allies prepared for D-Day, Joe Biden described America as "an embarrassment" and its trade policies "self-defeating." "The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border. Americans know that’s not right,” the former vice president and potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate told the Munich Security Conference. "The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment. The American people know, overwhelmingly, that it is not right.
