Well, it’s a start…. Lucy Smith reports for the Townsville (Queensland), Australia Bulletin: A RENOWNED climate scientist has been jailed for fraudulently claiming half a million dollars in reimbursements from his employer. Over seven years, Australian Institute of Marine Science senior researcher Daniel Michael Alongi lodged 129 claims for fictitious purchases totalling $553,420. (snip)Alongi is not some minor figure in the Warmist research establishment. Eric Worrall comments: “According to Research Gate, Alongi has helped author 140 publications, and has been cited 5,861 times. All in the last few months has been bad for the image of mainstream climate science. First we had the Shukla 20
If one is willing to steal half a million bucks from the taxpayers, how hard is it to tell a few little lies and manipulate data to justify your "research?" I have a feeling that this is a worldwide practice since so many governments buy into this racket, hook, line & sinker.
The entire field is a sham concocted for redistribution and control and perpetuated by people who don´t want to leave academia and get a real job.
Harold Ramis´ character in Ghostbusters summed it up well: Dr. Raymond Stantz: Personally, I liked the university. They gave us money and facilities, we didn´t have to produce anything! You´ve never been out of college! You don´t know what it´s like out there! I´ve WORKED in the private sector. They expect *results*.
Climate science is a scheme to facilitate income distribution among nations. There are those in our own country who want to illuminate borders, shift wealth out of this country and prepare the way for a one world government.
It seems as though everyone and his publicist is commenting on Harvey Weinstein and the Hollywood sex culture, but there is an interesting exception: the Motion Picture Association of America. The scandal is not noted on its blog, nor in its news section, nor in its press releases, nor in the recent speeches by its chairman extolling the First Amendment and the institution of copyright. One would normally expect a major trade association to be active on such a big issue, but the explanation for the silence seems pretty easy. The MPAA chairman (until the end of this year, which is
In the movie What About Bob, a needy psychiatric patient, Bob Wiley, stalks his psychiatrist, Dr. Leo Marvin. Bob follows Dr. Marvin on his vacation, invades Dr. Marvin´s family, shows up at dinner, spends the night, even co-opts the doctor´s television interview. Everywhere Dr. Marvin turns, Bob´s there. No hints, insults, or humiliation can loosen Bob´s death grip on the doctor. (snip) Hillary Clinton is our Bob Wiley. She stalks the American people, inserts herself in our lives at every turn. Bill Clinton tried to give us a heads-up when he campaigned, saying that by electing him, the people would
Back in July, I called for a criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s collusion with Russia to turn over control of 20 percent of our uranium supplies to Russian interests in return for some $145 million in donation to the Clinton Foundation. Now it turns out that there was one, an FBI investigation dating back to 2009, with current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller up to their eyeballs in covering up evidence of Hillary’s collusion, bordering on treason, with Vladimir Putin’s Russia: Prior to the Obama administration approving the very controversial deal in 2010 giving Russia 20%
A crisis of confidence is building as the story fed to the public about the Las Vegas mass shooting keeps changing. Yesterday’s uninformative exclusive interview of wounded security guard Jesus Campos by Ellen DeGeneres only added to the mysteries. Fortunately, Tucker Carlson and Mark Steyn brought some enlightenment to the murkiness, drawing our attention to the tort lawyers as a major influence on what we do and don’t learn. And the curious absence of surveillance footage of the perp as he partied away for days in one of the most heavily surveiled places on earth. This is the best six minutes
As far as anybody knows, the November 4th revolution/tantrum/jamboree planned by Antifa and its associate organizations remains on schedule. The “Opposition” – Antifa, the John Brown Clubs, Refuse Fascism, and assorted other scraps have announced that on that date the revolution will begin with a mass nationwide uprising that will continue until the Trump/Pence regime is overcome. (snip) What we are experiencing, far from a deadly revolutionary upsurge threatening everything of value, is a historically unique situation where, for the first time on record, a leftist movement is in complete and accelerating collapse within a democratic polity. The upcoming people’s
Sharyl Attkisson’s The Smear gives insight to how news is made today. It goes a long way in convincing readers that they should believe only a small portion of what is released by the government and reported by the press. This leads to a very cynical view of the news and confirms Otto von Bismarck’s claim that "Nothing is proven until it is officially denied." Attkinsson gives an account of how massive the smear industry is. (snip) Her account of Larry Flynt’s reward for information on Congressional extramarital affairs was revealing. Just how many congressmen have nothing to hide and
Democrats are deeply split into two factions. The old guard, a gerontocracy that still runs the Congressional caucuses, is white, liberal. and very, very old. or racialist. The other faction is very progressive, if not outright socialist younger, far left, and heavily minority, usually comitted to identity politics. Thanks to two recent announcements, we can look forward to an open slugging match between to the two factions on a vast scale, one that may last most of the year, through a springtime primary election and a general election in November. First, ancient (84), rich (estimated net worth more than $40 million),
Jimmy Kimmel’s angry political rants have painted him into a corner. He understands that he has lost a chunk of his audience, but now has a social media claque eager for more that would turn on him for any failure to live up to their expectations. Kimmel also is starting to realize that this political commentary stuff is harder than just making middlebrow jokes. People take him seriously, and suddenly there are new expectations the former co-host of The Man Show – that seemed to be aimed at adolescent male beer-drinkers – realizes he has no chance of fulfilling: “I’m nobody’s
Hillary Clinton will never let on any doubts about the damage Harvey Weinstein has done to her career, her husband’s image, or the prospects for the political machine of hangers on, funders, and operatives. The designated successor is her daughter Chelsea, who, whatever her other merits, is not nearly as good a congenital liar as her mother, much less Bill Clinton. So, when the UK Daily Mail ambushed her at Northeastern University attending a Clinton Global Initiative University event and asked her if the Clinton Foundation would return the $100,000 it received from Weinstein, she fled. A video of the encounter is
Still smarting from Hillary Clinton´s unexpected election loss in 2016, the Soros crew at the Open Foundation Society has got to work looking for reasons to hammer it down and ensure it never happens again. A new study of 450 working class whites from five cities has come out, with the aim of finding out how these recalcitrants and deplorables can team up with other ethnic groups to elect Democrats. Oh that´s not how they put it, but it seems to be what it is. (snip) there´s a curious disconnect in that the researchers claim it´s all to help "working
I cannot ever remember one television news operation calling out its competition the way Tucker Carlson denounced NBC News last night on his 8 PM Eastern Fox News program. But these are far from ordinary times, and I am coming to appreciate that Tucker Carlson is far from an ordinary TV talking head. I imagine that the top brass at NBC-Universal and parent Comcast are meeting with their lawyers today. Tucker promises that tonight, Friday the 13th, there will be much more on NBC News. I will be watching. Here is his segment from Thursday. It is well worth 6 minutes of
Nobody knows with certainty the cause(s) of the Northern California wildfires that have overwhelmed the capacity of governments to in any way contain them. A few alterative theories exist. NASA blames lightning, but I am not sure how much credence they deserve. I am much more interested in this: The Bay Area News Group reported that emergency dispatchers in Sonoma County received multiple calls of power lines falling down and electrical transformers exploding on Sunday night, when the wildfires were first reported. (snip) The Mercury-News headlines: “Gov. Brown vetoed 2016 bill aimed at power line, wildfire safety” A year ago, a bipartisan
Former President George W. Bush offered an unmistakable denunciation of Trumpism Thursday without mentioning the president by name, urging citizens to oppose threats to American democracy. “Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication,” Bush warned in remarks at the Bush Institute’s Spirit of Liberty event in New York. By chance, Bush was standing in the same spot at the Time Warner Center where former President Barack Obama made a similar plea for democracy and American leadership in late September, shortly after President Donald Trump had finished a belligerent, isolationist speech to the United Nations
Former President George W. Bush said Thursday that “bigotry seems emboldened” in the United States, warning that Americans need to reject “white supremacy.” The former president also criticized the “governing class,” but did not specifically mention President Trump, Congress or any other politicians in office. “Discontent deepened and sharpened partisan conflicts” in recent years, Bush said in remarks from New York City at a forum focused on security and sponsored by the George W. Bush Institute.
George W. Bush hinted Thursday at his dissatisfaction with Donald Trump, complaining in a New York City speech that ´bullying and prejudice´ has become a caustic norm in American public life. At an event hosted by the George W. Bush Institute, the 43rd U.S. president rattled off a thinly veiled litany of complaints about the current commander-in-chief, focusing on both his tone and his isolationist policy choices. ´Our young people need positive role models,´ he said. ´Bullying and prejudice in our public life sets a national tone, provides permission for cruelty and bigotry, and compromises the moral education of children.´
Democratic Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson is laughing and bragging after White House chief of staff John Kelly said he was “stunned” Thursday that Wilson criticized President Donald Trump’s call to the widow of a dead soldier. “You mean to tell me that I’ve become so important…that the White House is following me and my words? This is amazing. That’s amazing. That is absolutely phenomenal. I’ll have to tell my kids that I’m a rock star now,” Wilson told Miami Fox affiliate WSVN-TV, while laughing. (Snip) The congresswoman also bizarrely said, “The dog can bark at the moon all night long but
Damning new evidence appears to show that Hillary Clinton used her office as Secretary of State to confer benefits to Russia in exchange for millions of dollars in donations to her foundation and cash to her husband. But there’s more. It seems it was all covered up for years by the same three people who are now involved in the investigation of President Donald Trump over so-called Russian “collusion.” (Snip) What’s more, Holder was a member of the “Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States” which approved the uranium sale to the Russians in 2010.
A Massachusetts elementary school has canceled its Halloween events and is celebrating ´black and orange spirit day´ instead. Boyden Elementary School´s principal sent a letter to parents this week saying that it had decided to cancel its traditional Halloween parade on October 31 because it was ´not inclusive of all students´ and was ´difficult´ for many. Without specifying which students the parade excluded, Principal Brendan Dearborn said the school would instead hold a ´black and orange spirit day´. Children are allowed to dress in those colors but cannot come to school in costume. They are however allowed to wear costumes to an
Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News senior judicial analyst, weighed in on the report, telling FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on “Varney & Co.,” “The significance is an FBI acknowledgement that Huma Abedin, Mrs. Anthony Weiner, when she had a top security clearance as the number two assistant to Hillary Clinton when Hillary was Secretary of State, regularly sent copies of sensitive material to her own laptop so she could look at it at night, either knowing or forgetting that her husband had access to it as well.” Napolitano said this gives insight into the State Department’s casual approach to top secret
WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Tom Homan confirmed on Thursday that a man arrested in connection with setting a fire in Sonoma County Wine Country is an illegal alien from Mexico who has been twice returned to his “home country.” Homan also confirmed that ICE has issued detainer requests for Jesus Fabian Gonzalez five times now in the past year alone, including the one issued on October 16 in relation to his most recent arrest on suspicion of arson. All of the arrests were made “by Sonoma County on various felony and misdemeanor charges,” according
WASHINGTON — A young Barack Obama questioned his place in the world and his racial identity, agonized over whether he´d make enough money as a community organizer, and lamented his incompatibility with his ex-girlfriend in 30 pages of letters he wrote to her that are now being archived by Emory University in Atlanta. (Snip) "My ideas aren´t as crystallized as they were while in school, but they have an immediacy and weight that may be more useful if and when I´m less observer and more participant," Obama wrote in 1984 to McNear, who was a student at a California college
The two most recent presidents on Thursday blasted the state of US politics in events that were separated by less than 20 miles. First, it was former President George W. Bush. The most recent former Republican president lambasted a political culture that caused "bigotry" to seem "emboldened." The public comments were Bush´s most pointed since President Donald Trump took office in January. "In recent decades, public confidence in our institutions has declined," the 43rd president said at an event in New York hosted by his namesake institute. "Our governing class has often been paralyzed
For fark’s sake. The guy’s accused of rape, by more than one woman. What sort of behavior does she think “invited” that? Even his somewhat less egregious offenses are inexplicable in terms of an invitation. Does anyone think Lauren Sivan put out the vibe upon meeting famous Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein that she was hoping to watch him furtively whack it into a potted plant in a dark corner of an empty restaurant kitchen? The more aggressive harassment is, the harder it is to explain in terms of a misconstrued female “invitation.” Actual assault is plainly indefensible, yet here’s Eddie
Hey, mainstream media! We finally found it — a real Russia scandal involving the 2016 election. With actual evidence of criminal wrongdoing and everything! So come on, New York Times, CNN and MSNBC, let’s ... Hey, where’d everybody go? For months I’ve been doing TV hits as the token conservative and getting grilled over “Russiagate.” Did Donald Trump and the Russians collude to steal the election from Hillary Clinton? And for months I’ve been asking the same questions: Where is the evidence of an actual crime? And since “collusion” isn’t necessarily against the law, what actual crime are Democrats and their media
