Whatever. The IPCC report and the Brussels NGOs who are behind it are frauds and liars with a) an agenda, b) a financial stake and c) reputations that will never be whole again. (So they must keep shouting the big lie!) Trouble for them is, in addition to the empiric evidence (Dude, where’s my global warming?), a critical mass of scientists are refusing to go into the destroyed-reputation sewer. The galling thing to me has been and remains our compliant and silent MSM. The hard evidence is there, but they have no desire to report it. We all know why; the truth reflects poorly on the Democratic Party in general and the cipher in the White House in particular. History will not be kind. It may take 50 years, but eventually these lying bastards will be hammered into turd paste.
So the mullahs have nominated one of the guys who held Americans captive in the US embassy in Iran to be ambassador to the U.N. Doubtless, the genuflector-in-chief will, well, genuflect. This should never have been a problem. We should have killed the guy long ago.
I love the Koch Brothers. What’s funny to me is to hear lefties spew their hatred of everything Koch, as if George Soros doesn’t exist. Most progressives are shameless; as a result, the notion of hypocrisy is never part of the equation.
The place is the perfect laboratory to examine progressive politics. They have more welfare recipients and a greater wealth divide than any other state. Public unions own the place and corruption flows like lava from a volcano.
Oh, yeah, Victor David Hanson is absolute go-to guy. And his books are great, too.
Bold prediction: Nothing, not even GOP stupidity will save the Senate for Dems in November. Moreover, they are going to lose House seats. I stated on FB sometime ago and said to friends when Obama was elected the first time that he would lead the Democratic Party over a cliff. I don’t see anything that would make me alter that prediction.
Aren’t you glad you don’t live in Oregon?
Everything but Nancy Pelosi splashing topless in the Florida surf…Thank God for large favors.
I am more than happy to concede that in both parties public office attracts an inordinate percentage of low lives and sociopaths. The difference is progressives believe in the perfectibility of man through legislation conjured and concocted by those we elevate to high office. Hence a desire to give them more money and power, so our betters can make the world more perfect.
Conservatives/libertarians understand that too many humans — most of us; hell, all of us — are far too capable of, and often motivated by, lust, avarice, self-aggrandizement and power. And political office doesn’t change that, not even among our very best and brightest. So, we would reduce their power and the means (taxes) to use it.
Harry Reid had no money when he entered the Senate, and now he’s a millionaire several times over. I don’t think public office should be an instrument for private enrichment.
Obama’s miserable presidency is compounded by Reid’s (and formerly Pelosi’s) lack of statesmanship. The man defines hack. He should never have risen above the level of ward leader in a political machine. Compare him with someone like Howard Baker and you realize how far we’ve fallen and what a dishonorable character the man has.
And when you see something like this video, you have to wonder about his level of intelligence. I mean, just in terms of intellectual heft, the guy is no more than solid average.
