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.

DHS to ´closely monitor´ caravan of

The Hill, by Brett Samuels    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 10/22/2018 11:11:51 AM     Post Reply
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Sunday that the agency is focused on rooting out potential criminal gang members who may seek to exploit a so-called "caravan" of Central American migrants seeking asylum in the U.S. "While we closely monitor the caravan crisis, we must remain mindful of the transnational criminal organizations and other criminals that prey on the vulnerabilities of those undertaking the irregular migration journey,” (Snip) "We shall work with our partners in the region to investigate and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law all who seek to encourage and profit from irregular migration,"

Claiming ´spousal privilege´

Congress faced another hurdle this week in its effort to establish the record of how, why and when the FBI was given information from Fusion GPS on its controversial investigation of President Trump.(Snip)Now, former Fusion employee Nellie Ohr, the wife of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, has invoked spousal privilege to refuse to answer questions from the committee. The use of spousal privilege in this context, however, could prove more damaging for Congress than the underlying allegations involving Ohr. Congress needs to seriously examine of the basis and scope of this common-law privilege in the context of an oversight investigation.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Bernie Sanders says he speaks with Elizabeth Warren nearly every day — just not about 2020. But with the two progressive behemoths on a collision course in the presidential primary — and with some progressive activists alarmed that they might split the vote, allowing a more moderate Democrat to win the nomination — Sanders suggested Friday that a pre-2020 discussion among like-minded potential candidates could be forthcoming. Asked whether he and other progressive contenders should hold talks in an effort to ensure one of them prevails, Sanders told POLITICO, “I suspect that in the coming weeks

Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, offered four recommendations to President Donald Trump and his administration on how to solve the border crisis caused by the stream of migrant caravans seeking entry into the U.S. via Mexico. (Snip)Vaughan remarked, “But if they come as a group we could shut down a border crossing or shut down a part of the border. It’s been done before in order to shut down drug trafficking and make a statement. When a DEA agent was killed in Mexico, we shut down the

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico — Despite Mexican efforts to stop them at the border, a growing throng of Central American migrants resumed their advance toward the U.S. border early Sunday in southern Mexico. Their numbers swelled to about 5,000 overnight and at first light they set out walking toward the Mexican town of Tapachula, 10 abreast in a line stretching approximately a mile. It was not immediately clear where the additional travelers had materialized from since about 2,000 gathered on the Mexican side Saturday night. They seemed likely to be people who had been waiting on the bridge over the Suchiate

TAPACHULA, MEXICO -- A growing caravan of roughly 7,000 Central American immigrants continued its trek toward the United States on Sunday, blowing past Mexican police and immigration officials. The group, which has swelled in size in recent days, set out before dawn on the only road out of the small Mexican border town of Ciudad Hidalgo. It arrived in the afternoon in the city of Tapachula, more than 20 miles away. The migrants, nearly all from the poor and violent nation of Honduras, posed a growing political and humanitarian calamity for Mexico,

This is beyond odd, but here goes. I rise to defend Hillary Clinton. She is under attack and this time, the long knives are wielded by members of her own clan. Suddenly, after two years of indulging Clinton’s blame games and pity parties, lefty pundits say she’s talking too much, she’s stuck in the past, she had her chance and she blew it. Vanity Fair, declaring that she “still hasn’t learned the lessons of #MeToo,” is furious that Clinton said her husband’s Oval Office dalliance with Monica Lewinsky was not an abuse of power

Every big U.S. election is interesting, but the coming midterms are fascinating for a reason most commentators forget to mention: The Democrats have no issues. The economy is booming and America’s international position is strong. In foreign affairs, the U.S. has remembered in the nick of time what Machiavelli advised princes five centuries ago: Don’t seek to be loved, seek to be feared. The contrast with the Obama years must be painful for any honest leftist.

Hillary Clinton joined Eric Garner’s mother Gwen Carr for a book signing in Manhattan, New York Friday. Gwen Carr penned a book titled, “This Stops Now” in her ongoing effort to pursue justice for her son, Eric Garner who died after a Staten Island police officer held him in a choke hold. Back in 2014, Staten Island police officers attempted to arrest Eric Garner because he was selling unlicensed cigarettes. Video shows Eric Garner resisting arrest, however; racism was blamed for his death. Twice-failed presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, who wrote the forward for Gwen Carr’s book, nodded in agreement after she

San Francisco - Cow´s milk is allegedly a symbol used by white supremacists, according to PETA. In a recent statement, the animal advocate organization explains that dairy milk has been the drink of choice for supremacists because "the dairy industry inflicts extreme violence on other living beings." According to PETA, "some people might be surprised to learn that cows used by the dairy industry are slaughtered after about five years because their bodies are so spent from being kept constantly pregnant." (Snip) Peta links this concept to white supremacy by saying cows are controlled by humans, similar to the mindset of
