Be afraid, be very, very afraid!
Ignore Gore and focus on the real crisis that threatens our very existance. It is not global warming, or an ice-age, or astroid, or aliens, or a nuclear holocost or even Michael Moores breath!! It’s…it’s…
The science is settled, people. The earth is flat. The Capeurnicas Helio-Centric Solar System Scam is the basis of an evil alien capitalist plot to divert solar and cosmic energy from the earth to the beorgeoisie planets! The sun, moon, stars and planets orbit around our flat earth.
Why do you think the world’s population explosion is taking place in the Eastern hemi-flat? Don’t be stupid! When the Plutonian orchestrated imbalance of humanity reaches critical mass, the earth will tip over and we’ll all fall off!
While Michael Moore is doing his best to shift weight west, it’s not enough. If you don’t act in the next five minutes we’re all gonna die!! It’s all over but the screaming. You’re children’s future is at stake! You must act now!

This post was inspired by yet more weird and wacky explanations from Al & Pals trying to explain the present coldest spring on record.
Memo to Al Gore:
When science is settled, it is no longer science, but dogma, politics or worse.
There is zero compelling evidence that humans contribute in any significant way to global warming.
There is no demonstrable evidence linking local severe weather events with global warming.
Credible scientific method gathers experimental data to test a hypothesis leading to a conclusion. AGW is the antithesis - beginning with a conclusion then seeking data in support of that conclusion. Michael Mann’s “Hockey Stick Graph”, the smoking gun, slam dunk, irrefutable evidence in support of Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth” scam has been debunked. The data was manipulated and misrepresented. The real data shows no temperature increase over the last hundred years – but in fact a decline which Mann and AGW scientists are desperate to hide.
Penn State investigated Mann for academic fraud and misconduct for his bogus research - BUT - said investigation was performed by former Penn State President Graham Spanner - the same guy who investigated Jerry Sandusky and Joe Paterno and found no behavioral misconduct.
“You can make up any analogy you want, but the fact is that computer models don’t show that change,” Pat Michaels, a climatologist and senior fellow at the Cato Institute told The Daily Caller. It is, said Michaels, the “core problem of climatology:” “It is attempting to explain everything even when everything becomes contradictory.”
“They make this stuff up as they go along,” said Myron Ebell, director of the Center of Energy and Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute.
“This failure to skillfully predict any of the extreme weather patterns we have seen in the past should be a wake-up call to policymakers and the public that the climate science community is overselling the prediction skill that is possible,” writes Roger Pielke Sr… “Moreover, until and unless they can skillfully predict observationally documented CHANGES in the statistics (probabilities) of the different major circulation patterns, their explanations are necessarily flawed. There is no evidence that the global climate model multi-decadal predictions (and even shorter term runs on a year or less into the future) have the needed skill.”
In 1876 Lewis Carroll penned a delightful poem entitled The Hunting of the Snark – An Agony in Eight Fits about an absurd ship manned by a rather bizarre captain & crew. With a slight liberty, the beginning of “Fit the Second” begins thus. I could not help noting the strong resemblance to our present POTUS and his addled adherents.
The [One] himself they all praised to the skies —
Such a carriage, such ease and such grace!
Such solemnity, too! One could see he was wise,
The moment one looked in his face!
He had bought a large map representing the sea,
Without the least vestige of land:
And the crew were much pleased when they found it to be
A map they could all understand.
Indeed. Full speed astern.
According to some anthropologist egghead types, the Mayan calendar predicts the planet will cease to exist this year. Others seem to attribute the imminent demise of good ol’ Terra Firma to the effects of President Obama’s potential reelection. I’ll go with none of the above. Firstly, I’m thinking if the Mayans had it together they probably wouldn’t have vanished without a trace for no apparent reason. But they did leave some cool stony pics and architecture.
As for The One, he is naught but a fart in the American wind. The USA has survived and thrived through far worse than this dope and his band of merry cretin – and will be around long after their malodorous vapor has blown away. The myth that this miscreant is something more will blow away with him – but unlike our Mayan friends - he’ll leave nothing of note for future generations to enjoy. Just an extensive tab. Sigh.
Best take IMO Tweeted by Randall Hoven: Kinda like the Doors, but without music or Jim Morrison.
That was, I believe the weakest State of the Union speech I have ever seen – save possibly the Jimmy Peanuthead malaise phase. Applause, even from the democretin. was tenuous and anemic - perhaps they didn’t want their picture in the papers applauding this train wreck. Can’t blame them for that. Something seemed to overshadow the feigned bravado and confidence. Something is changing…transforming - tangible, yet mysterious. Can’t seem to put my finger on it…
No matter. While that was painful to witness and listen to, I find it encouraging. The swagger, cockiness and messianic ego are withered and weak. Even the Obamabots can see where this is headed. I’ll be interested to see if there is any poll spike, but doubt we’ll see it – and I hope and pray we just saw the beginning of the last chapter of this horror novel.
Fasten your seatbelts please. We may be landing sooner than expected. Thank God.
Haven’t posted in many moons, but something happened today that triggered my snark.
Senator Paul detained by the TSA.
Moira Bagley, the senator’s spokeswoman, told Fox News that Paul (R-Ky.) called her after he went through a “full body screener,” described to her as a body-imaging machine, and was stopped for an anomaly around his leg. The senator lifted his pants leg to show nothing was there and offered to go back through the machine, but the TSA official said no, only a full-body pat down would suffice.
Bagley said Paul refused, resisting on the grounds that it infringes on his rights. Paul maintaintains he was “detained”, and White House Carney Caller was swift to respond: Video here.
Let’s just be clear, the passenger was not detained. The passenger triggered an airport alarm during routine screening, but refused to complete the screening process in order to resolve the issue. Passengers, as in this case, who refuse to comply with security procedures are denied access to the secure gate area.
As usual with Wonkey-Whitehouse-Whitewash, this prepared piece of partisan poofta prompts parsing:
- Protocol, respect and courtesy strongly suggest “the Senator” would be more appropriate in addressing the incident than “the passenger”. The reason “Senator” was not used gets to the heart of the problem.
- He certainly was “detained” meaning he was taken to a cubicle, not allowed to procede and missed his flight. He was not arrested (Senators are immune from arrest) but neither was he permitted to leave. That is being “detained” by any definition.
- “…refused to complete the screening process in order to resolve the issue.” The fact that he is indeed a United States Senator should have resolved the issue immediately. He carries government security clearance, full credentials and travels with an entourage.
After the incident, Paul said:
I think if you’ve been to Yemen three times, and you’re chatting with people in Pakistan they may need to talk to you… Target the approach to people who are a potential risk. By spending an hour with me this morning, there’s a chance someone went by they should have spent more time with.
Ah, therein lies problemo uno. TSA security procedure treats everyone exactly the same (Old lady, Boy Scout, Senator, Priest, Imam, Arabic student from Yemen, Undie Bomber)- so no particular group is offended, or…(oh the humanity!)…profiled. These TSA policies infringe on our Constitutional rights to privacy, assumption of innocence and protection from illegal search - ironically to prevent discrimination. Because, of course, it would be preferable to spiral into terra firma in a flaming aircraft than to hurt anyone’s feelings.
Israel is arguably the most preferred terrorist target in the world, yet there have been no security breaches at Ben Gurion International Airport security since 1972 - and this is accomplished without body scanners or intrusive searches. They use two rather obvious and very effective techniques: PROFILING and behavioral analysis. Passengers are thouroughly background checked before even arriving, using very advanced and secret databases, and risk levels assigned to each passenger. All passengers are asked a series of questions by trained agents before getting to the gates. They are carefully monitored for inconsistant answers, nervousness, voice pitch, eye movement, physiological reactions etc. Combining these two techniques, only about 2% are singled out for further screening. This system has been 100% effective for forty years.
Janet Nappytime actually traveled to Israel last year to observe first hand how it’s done, and apparently learned nothing. Apparently, in Senator Paul’s case, “the system worked”. It harrassed, embarrassed and delayed a Republican senator from returning to Washingtoon. Mission accomplished!
When we willingly forfeit our rights and fredoms for security - we ultimately have neither.
If in response to 9-11 we accept a state where government may remove fundamental rights at will, then the terrorists have won.
The Telegraph: Libyan rebel commander admits his fighters have al-Qaeda links
Could this be the man we can look forward to as our new “friend” in Libya?
Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, the Libyan rebel leader, has said jihadists who fought against allied troops in Iraq are on the front lines of the battle against Muammar Gaddafi’s regime.
Obama: “That’s why building this international coalition has been so important… It is our military that is being volunteered by others to carry out missions that are important not only to us, but are important internationally.”
That’s great news. Who doesn’t enjoy volunteering other people?… Libya, in that sense, is a classic post-nationalist, post-modern military intervention: As in Kosovo, we’re do-gooders in a land with no good guys. But, unlike Kosovo, not only is there no strategic national interest in what we’re doing, the intended result is likely to be explicitly at odds with U.S. interests. – Mark Steyn in OCR
Lovely. Again, Obamisitic leadership by decisive cluelessness.
- Let’s insult and belittle England. Who needs our oldest, staunchest ally?
- Let’s back Manuel Zalaya – Chavez’s good buddy who usurped the Honduran constitution.
- Let’s be non-committal in the Iranian struggle against the Mullahs over-ruling the elections.
- Let’s trash Mubarak – the Muslim Brotherhood seem like such nice folks.
- Let’s join our UN brotherhood in their support of the democracy loving rebels in Libya.
God protect, preserve and prosper our troops. Their Commander in Chief has no idea who we are fighting or why.
