Nobel Prize winner paints
bleak climate change picture

Knoxville (TN) News Sentinel, by Bob Fowler

Original Article

Posted By:Heil Liberals, 2/12/2014 7:21:39 PM

A Nobel Prize-winning scientist painted a bleak picture of the future of global warming and climate change Wednesday, likening the world’s current path to Russian roulette, but with the gun pointed at a knee. The world isn’t about to stop using pollution-producing fossil fuels or run out of them soon, he said, as technologies to extract oil and natural gas continue to improve. Future supplies will keep up with demand “for decades,” he said. “Every decade you put in another bullet and you pull the trigger,” Dr. Steven Chu told a capacity crowd at an Oak Ridge National Laboratory auditorium. “After four

Climate change? Yep, it happens and has been for at least three billion years.

Perhaps Dr. Chu is smart, but he certainly isn´t knowledgeable or wise.

Dr. Steven Chu. First and foremost a global socialist. Then a scientist. Therefore, his opinions are invalid.

He won a Nobel prize for some very clever molecular level processes. This does not give him any credibility on climate, about which he seems to lack any interest in either facts or principles.

Nobel Prize huh? BO has one of those for peace. Does the world seem particularly peaceful to you? Seems almost anyone can get one of these and once they do they seem to think they are experts in just about everything rather than just in the extremely narrow field in which they received their award. It´s like Hollyweird where an actor thinks that movie success (fantasy) gives then credentials in the real world.

It was Obama appointee, Energy Secretary Dr. Steven Chu, who called for equalization of American and EU gasoline prices, which would mean something like tripling our current pump prices to somewhere aroung ten bucks a gallon. He thinks it would serve us right.

No. Strike that. It would take billions out of lumpen capitalist pockets.

No. Let me try to phrase that again. It would mean that a majority of Americans would become so impecunious that they would, for relief of financial pain, petition Obama with prayer.

Petition Obama with prayer.

Peh-tish-un Obama with pray-ur. (pause)

You cannotpetition Obama with prayer! (Just don´t tell Chu. It´ll ruin his day. Idiot.)

Perhaps Chu should look out his window this morning. DC is buried under a foot of snow and the Federal government is shut down because of it. When I was a kid we had periods of intense heat and then periods of intense cold. We called this summer and winter, respectively. Nothing has changed except that a bunch of Marxists have seized upon change of seasons as a vehicle to advance their Stalinist policies. Shame for them that Mother Nature isn´t cooperating with their schemes.

KNOXVILLE — Blount County authorities were part of an investigation involving a cocaine trafficking ring against 21 individuals who were living in Knoxville. A federal grand jury returned a 58-count indictment Dec. 3 against the suspects, charging them with conspiracy to distribute cocaine and cocaine base, money laundering, and gun charges.

A 31-year-old Oak Ridge man accused of having sex with a 15-year-old girl on several occasions remained in the Anderson County Jail Thursday, accused of aggravated statutory rape. Ramiro Hernandez-Lopez acknowledged the incidents, which occurred in his Broadway Avenue apartment, during an interview Wednesday at the Oak Ridge Police Department, according to the arrest warrant.

For decades, the Y-12 nuclear weapons plant relished its nickname, the Fort Knox of Uranium. The self-applied moniker helped define the type of work that takes place here and underscored the government facility’s top-security image. Overnight, however, Fort Knox became a laughingstock. On July 28, 2012, three intruders cut through fences, avoided detection and managed to reach the plant’s Protected Area, where nuclear warhead parts are manufactured and where the nation’s stockpile of bomb-grade uranium is stored.

Pigeon Forge Police Chief Jack Baldwin said today that he fired three officers who were caught on an in-cruiser video discussing the killing of other officers. Dismissed on Monday were Trinity R. Brown, Jefferson Thigpen and Michael L. Musgrove, according to a news release Baldwin read in a news conference at Pigeon Forge City Hall. Baldwin said they were fired for conduct incompatible with continued employment. Baldwin said a June 7 video of the officers discussing the killing of other officers was uncovered, which led Baldwin to suspend them on June 19.

Rewriting history and ‘Looking Backward’

One thing that’s incredibly tiresome about being a conservative is how people rewrite history so that they can pigeonhole you as a racist, a fascist or a dangerous radical. The most common tactic is to claim that Republicans were the party of slavery and that they had opposed equal rights for blacks. This is, of course, untrue, but in a culture that devalues history and inflates the value of punditry, truth is whatever is repeated often enough in a chain e-mail. An example of this kind of distortion occurred last week in response to Louisiana state Sen. Elbert Guillory’s announcement

How the Ancient
Greeks Viewed Weapons

Posted By: Heil Liberals- 2/1/2013 8:26:10 PM     Post Reply
One of the guns used to murder children and adults in Newtown, Connecticut, was an AR-15, a semiautomatic rifle that’s similar to a weapon used in war by American troops. A weapon of war was turned on innocents at home. That would have shocked the ancient Greeks. The pioneers of citizen armies were also pioneers of withdrawing weapons from the places of civilized life. The ancient Greek armies were manned exclusively by citizens who brought their own weapons into battle. Getting to serve in an élite combat unit required being wealthy enough to afford to buy one’s own armor.

In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A.

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now!

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,
