The Week in Review, PART I: More Beto Fails and Deep State Panic

Today’s Campaign Update, Part I
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[The week just past as seen through the @GDBlackmon Twitter feed.]

The week began with another Climate Scammer proving that Climate Change is nothing more or less than a global religious cult. Things got better – much, much better – from there.

Hey, y’all! The “world’s fastest bullet train” goes a whopping 224 mph, not even half the speed of the typical airliner. Note to @AOC and fans of her nitwitted Green New Deal: This is NOT a workable substitute for air travel. Full stop.

This was the week we got to meet the “new Beto.” We discovered that not much had changed. Not much at all.

It was the week that Michigan Democrat Rashida Tlaib told us how she really feels about the Holocaust, and boy was it revealing.

It was maybe more revealing about the true sympathies of the Democrat leadership than Tlaib, in fact, given that no thinking person could have held any doubts about Ms. Tlaib’s antisemitism. 

The disgrace who is Tlaib was so obvious that even CNN felt the need to be temporarily honest about it.

It was the week Tim Conway died, and America became a little less amusing.

John Nolte captured everyone’s true hopes and aspirations for the fate of National Teenage Drama Queen James Comey.

It was the week we found out that this guy had already been investigating the investigators for a period of weeks, and we were just fine with that.

Unsurprisingly, it did not take long for the Democrat/Media smear machine to kick things into gear. *sigh*

Who was the last president who had the balls to travel to Louisiana to celebrate the great strength and progress of our nation’s oil and gas industry with a bunch of guys wearing hard hats? Hint: There is no correct answer to this question.

Oh, hey, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said something incredibly ignorant again. In other news, water continued to freeze at 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

Not much to add here.

What do you mean, “as if”, Brent?

The folks at the Babylon Bee were on an epic roll this past week, which is just par for the course.

It was a week the Deep State skunks and snakes spent desperately trying – and failing – to secure favorable narratives for themselves as the wheels of justice at William Barr’s DOJ continue grinding.

And I’m going to have to cut this off right there, because WordPress has apparently run out of steam here. I’ll do the rest of the week in Part II to follow shortly.

 

That is all.

The Week in Review: A Rat, A Duke, A Dress, A Bug-Eyed Schiff and AOC

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

The week kicked off with a controversy about a 48 year-old interview in Playboy Magazine with John Wayne. A friend had the best take on that one:

Things only went downhill from there. Here SkyNews, the very liberal and very British affiliate of Fox News, asks possibly the least relevant question of the century thus far:

On the Sunday morning talk shows, California Democrat Bug-eyed Adam Schiff was doing what he always does…:

…and then CNN jumped into the competition with SkyNews to see which could post the most absurd story of the day, because of course they did.:

Charlie Sykes thinks we need Mitt Romney. I properly set him straight on when it was that we really did need him. It was a long, long time ago, and he failed us.:

Speaking of The Duke, let us bask in his greatness. Oh, and look who smiled and hugged him when she presented his award.:

Oh, yeah, the Oscars were Sunday night. Here’s how the ummmm…er….welllll….’men’ dressed for the occasion this year.:

The news-fakers at USA Today did their best to describe Mr. Porter’s attire a something it wasn’t, and I wasn’t in the mood for it.:

Ok, let’s just move on, shall we?

It was an exasperating week during which even the smart people were doing dumb stuff.  The normally astute Byron York asks a very dumb question.:

No further explanation required here.:

Like AOC, Harry Reid needs a self-awareness coach.:

As President Trump prepared to fly out to Vietnam to meet with the Crazy Little Fat Guy, the memes were flying. Here’s one of the very best.:

Speaking of lying California Democrats, I give you Kamala Harris.:

Offered without further comment, because none is needed.:

You really can’t make this stuff up, folks…:

Sometimes the future looks incredible, but then you think things through…:

Steve Goddard succinctly and hilariously sums up the #ClimateScam, something he does about 26 times every week.:

A blast from the past that never gets old.:

Hey, wonder which way Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s staff voted on this one?

Mere pocket change to today’s Democrat Party.:

The depravity of the Democrat Party has never been on more blatant display than it was this week.:

James Woods doesn’t like shaking hands, so I offered a solution.:

Here I thank AOC for her incredibly generous stupidity and shamelessly promote my website, all in 280 characters.  I can be efficient when I want to be.:

My Twitter feed also has its very own handy FACT CHECK service. No need to thank me.:

Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up, and who would really want to?:

Lara Logan continued her campaign to tell the truth about our fake news media. Our fake news media was not amused.:

Speaking of fake news, the news-fakers at Slate did their dead level best to avoid the point of the new HBO film revealing the true nature of the monster Michael Jackson, so I tried to set them straight. It probably didn’t work, but it made me feel better.:

Oh yeah, and the Rat was testifying on Capitol Hill most of the week. So tiresome.:

Shameless self-promotion, in case you missed it.:

The horrific outcomes of Democrat Party policy choices, part 23,252.:

Back on February, 7,  I wrote that Irish Bob O’Rourke had better Fish or Cut Bait on his decision whether or not to run for the presidency, speculating that he was running the risk of missing his moment.  That speculation looked pretty prescient this week when he made his announcement and almost nobody noticed.:

I couldn’t have said it any better…:

The Olympics have been trending towards PC fakery for many years now, but this week, they went all-in. No need to waste time watching anymore.:

This candidate for congress doesn’t know the difference between a fully-automatic weapon and a semi-automatic weapon. Needless to say, she’s a Democrat.:

If you don’t follow  Nick Searcy on Twitter, you are missing all the fun.:

Seriously, are there really people out there who are so damn dumb that they thought these two were doing anything other than promoting a film?  Really?:

If you missed this, you need to watch it, and I’m not kidding.:

Here I sum up Joe Biden without even having to talk about all his creepy handsy-ness with women and children.:

Some other guy jumped into the Democrat presidential race.:

Hey, you can’t blame a guy for hoping, can you?:

Good Lindsey Graham continues its takeover of Bad Lindsey Graham, a trend that’s been ongoing since John McCain left this life last August.:

Just in case anyone has forgotten…:

Glad he was finally arrested, but why did it take so long? Oh, yeah, because he assaulted a conservative at Berkeley. Stupid question.:

President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) set the house on fire with a two-hour stemwinder at CPAC.:

Finally, Saturday was Texas Independence Day. God Bless Texas, y’all!:

That is all.

Meet Your Chief Justice: John Anthony Kennedy David Souter Roberts

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Man, that global warming is wreaking havoc in California. Oh, wait… – Scientists have been recording daily temperatures in Los Angeles for 132 years.  In all that time, they have never recorded a month of February during which the mercury did not top 70 degrees Fahrenheit on at least one day.

But then 2019 came along, and the temperature in LA remained below the 70 degree level for the entire 28 days.  Can there be any doubt that the “scientists” at NOAA who have spent the last decade defrauding the historic global temperature records in order to make the modern era appear to be warming will soon issue a report claiming this February to be the “warmest on record”?

I give it maybe 30 days before that happens. The Climate Scam never ends.

Today’s Public Service Announcement: Just so no one forgets: Ralph KKK Baby-Killer Blackface Coonman Northam is still Governor of Virginia, one full month after his college photo was revealed for all to see. Thanks, Democrats!

 

Chief Justice John Anthony Kennedy David Souter Roberts strikes again. – In case you missed it, our squish Chief Justice made more moves this week to side with the liberal minority on the Supreme court:

“Roberts joined the liberals Wednesday in two rulings that left the conservatives in dissent. Most notably, he cast the deciding vote to order a new look at the mental competence of a death row inmate who says he can’t remember the crimes he committed.

The votes add to an unmistakable pattern, offering fresh indications that Roberts is in no hurry to oversee a conservative legal revolution. The chief justice has also joined 5-4 orders that blocked President Donald Trump from curbing bids for asylum at the Mexican border and stopped Louisiana from enforcing new abortion restrictions.”

Here’s my favorite part of that Bloomberg article:

“’Chief Justice Roberts’s voting pattern this year reflects a change,’ said Josh Blackman, a professor at the South Texas College of Law in Houston.”

You don’t sayyyyyy…

In reality, Roberts’ voting pattern simply reflects the pattern at-large for half of the Supreme Court justices appointed by Republican presidents going back to the great Ronald Reagan. Reagan gave us Sandra Day O’Connor and Anthony Kennedy, sandwiched around great justices in William Rehnquist and Antonin Scalia; Poppy Bush gave us the execrable closet leftist David Souter before redeeming himself with the stalwart Clarence Thomas; George W. Bush first served up Justice Roberts before trying to go even lower with the laughable nomination of Harriett Myers – who the Senate properly rejected – and then made a big comeback with the nomination of Samuel Alito.

So when you look at that history, the reality is that the three GOP presidents before Donald J. Trump batted .500 when it comes to putting strict constructionist judges onto the Supreme Court. Even Ronaldus Magnus had a hard time getting it all right, although in his defense he did first nominate Robert Bork before serving up Kennedy, after Bork was shamefully slandered by Senate Democrats.

Roberts gave us a preview of things to come nine years ago with his horrific “that fee is a tax except when I want to call it a fee for the purposes of this laughably twisted and illogical decision” Obamacare ruling. But he seems to have waited for Kennedy to be replaced by a real conservative justice before making his move to go all-in to become the squish vote on the Court.

After this week, there can be no doubt that that is exactly where his real comfort zone is, which only makes the 2020 election that much more critical for the future of our country.

President Trump needs at least one more appointment.

That is all.

The Week in Review: Farting Cows, Crafty Beavers, AOC Memes and Epic Swalwell Fail

The Campaign Update Week in Review
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Week in Review, courtesy of the @GDBlackmon Twitter Feed…

The week kicked off with the whole Jussie Smollett hoax coming apart, and James Woods summed the great irony of it all in a single 280-character message, as only he can do.

Meanwhile, fellow hoaxters like the Creepy Porn Lawyer mourned Jussie’s exposure:

While Jussie’s effort to smear President Trump, his millions of supporters and the City of Chicago was falling apart, a CNN reporter was helping one of his hoax’s faithful fans try on jackets, because of course that’s what a CNN reporter would do:

Shameless Self-Promotion Alert!:  All of this hoaxing and the fake news media’s willing promotion of it for two solids weeks led me to write this piece, which is worth a read in case you missed it, and (hint, hint) worth sharing if you’ve already read it:

CBS’s Lara Logan, a rare actual ethical journalist in a mainstream media ocean of shameful news-fakers, put her career on the line on Monday by telling the unvarnished truth about her dying profession:

The no-good very bad week for the New York Times’s chosen candidate, Kamala Harris, continued, as she obviously had no earthly idea what one of her staffers had posted on her own Twitter feed about the Jussie Smollett hoax. You can bet the week was even worse for the staffer, though:

Another real journalist, the great Sharyl Attkisson, had a noble thought, but one with obvious stumbling blocks that would have to be overcome:

From our Clowns are Everywhere files, well, I give you Juan Williams:

It was just another magnificent week for making fun of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez …:

Radio Host Greg Budell – who invites me on his show from time to time – sums up the Commie’s candidacy in 16 words…:

Speaking of making fun of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, here’s a pure masterpiece of memery:

What happens when fake “greens” obstruct the construction of oil pipelines? Canada dumps 120,000 barrels per day of it onto trains, greatly increasing air pollution and the potential for fatal accidents. Because, Climate Change or something…:

I was planning to write about 1,000 words on how the fake news media would fake its “reporting” on the Smollett hoax as it continues to play out, but Undercover Huber summed it all up perfectly in just 280 characters, so I wrote about other stuff instead:

Sometimes I wish James Woods wouldn’t mince his words so much. It’s always so hard to figure out what he’s really thinking…:

Oh, hey, this also happened…:

Here, detestable California creep congressman Eric Swalwell tries to portray himself as a hero by walking an extra block for a cup of coffee.  It didn’t work out well for him at all…:

Oh, hey, this happened on Tuesday, too.:

How does any editor worth a damn allow this headline to make it to print?:

Oh, yeah, and here’s what happens when the fake “greens” like Andrew Cuomo refuse to allow the construction of new natural gas pipelines, i.e., people have no heat:

Is anyone surprised by this? Because it doesn’t surprise me at all. Not even a little bit:

Shameless Self-Promotion Alert!: I was really on a roll this week, and if you missed this piece summing up the ongoing hoaxes by Jussie and AOC’s “Green New Deal”, here’s your chance to take it in and (hint, hint) share it:

Prove me wrong…:

Pretty sure we reached that point back during the Reagan Administration, but your point is well-taken (and if you haven’t seen the clip of Sir Charles lampooning Smollett, you need to watch it):

The inevitable end game of fascist socialism continues to play out in Venezuela…:

When Ben Shapiro posed a very pertinent question about the shady plea deal federal prosecutors entered into with notorious pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, I had a ready answer about two of the most frequent visitors to his private island where all the shenanigans took place. Our fake news media’s ongoing refusal to report the truth about the Clintons is one of the greatest stains in the history of the Republic:

With the Weekly Standard having gone belly up, the idiot dozen remaining #NeverTrump nitwits have a new platform for spreading their stupidity. Not surprisingly, it adopts one of the favorite tactics of leftwing activists. If this surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention to the leftward tilt of these fake “conservatives”, not that I blame you.:

And now for some good news that came through the ol’ Twitter feed on Friday…:

This was the NICEST thing I could think to say about Michael Steele on Friday evening when his despicable remarks came across the wires.  No wonder the RNC went to pot when he was serving as its chairman.:

Despicable Dianne Feinstein had a rare moment of cogent thought this week, which I captured here, even though I misspelled “admirable” in the process.:

Australians are already finding out the desperate costs of implementing just a tiny portion of the “Green New Deal” the hard way.:

Man, Breadline Bernie really needs to work on his Twitter self-awareness.:

In case you missed it due to the fake news media blackout on all the wonderful things President Donald Trump is accomplishing on your behalf, this happened this week.:

With all the reports about Amy Klobuchar forcing a staffer to clean the comb she’d taken out of her purse to eat a salad, it seemed to me everyone was missing the most disgusting part of it all.:

Since no one in the fake news media would dream of fact-checking leftwing activist and Q-list actress Alyssa Milano, I did it for them.:

Brett Kavanaugh is all like, “geez, I wish she and her fellow Democrats and the fake news media would have taken this attitude back in October.”:

Sometimes the Climate Scammers mess up and let the truth slip out…:

Speaking of Climate Scammers, the great Steve Goddard captures their essence with the perfect meme.:

Was this mean of me? Or were you thinking it too?:

And finally, I leave you with yet another of the best in a great week for AOC Twitter memes.:

AOC’s “Green New Deal” Removes the Mask From Just Another Socialist/Fascist Face

The Thursday Energy Update
(Because Energy Fuels our Lives)

Just when you thought the ongoing Climate Scam couldn’t possibly get any more absurd in its fantasy-based thought, in steps Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (AOC). After AOC rolled out her “plan” – in the form of a long, amateurishly-written non-binding resolution – ” Dan Kish, distinguished senior fellow at the Institute for Energy Research, described it best:

“A six-page, non-binding resolution marketed as a ‘War Plan’ proves Congressman Cortez isn’t prepared and hasn’t done her homework,” he said, “Running the world’s greatest economy on unicorn farts and rainbow stew all run by masterminds in Washington, D.C., is a fool’s errand.”

To illustrate just how absurd, fantasy-based, brutish and non-specific the “plan” truly is, all one need to do is read this short outtake from it:

“Totally [totally!] overhaul transportation by massively expanding electric vehicle manufacturing, build charging stations everywhere [everywhere!], build out high speed rail at a scale at which air travel stops becoming necessary, create affordable public transportation available to all, with (sic) goal to replace very combustion-engine vehicle”

So, here’s the reality of how that would happen. The federal government would bankrupt the country by foregoing trillions of tax dollars subsidizing electric vehicles, while at the same time bankrupting millions of Americans by raising taxes on gasoline and diesel to levels that make it too expense to drive internal combustion engine cars and long-haul trucks.  This will in turn create massive jobs losses and food shortages throughout the nation as it becomes too expensive to transport things like groceries and other consumer goods via large trucks or traditional rail.

Next, the government will have to condemn and seize millions upon millions of acres of privately-owned lands to accommodate all the thousands of miles of rights-of-way for all the new rail lines the socialist nitwits plan to build. This will bankrupt thousands of family farmers and millions of other Americans whose livings depends upon the use of their private property, but hey, at least they’ll have charging stations available to charge their non-existent electric vehicles that are now even more unaffordable.

All the new rail construction will have to be completed using diesel-fired vehicles since the EV technology to run such massive equipment is non-existent, and oh by the way, we’ll have to build a whole bunch of new nuclear, natural gas and coal-fired power plants to provide electricity to all of those charging stations that – as AOC’s tiny little mind assures us – will now exist “everywhere”.

Oh, and once it becomes too expensive to travel by air – which will of necessity happen long before a single mile of new rail line is built – then places like California, Florida, New York City and Las Vegas – not to mention Hawaii and Alaska – can forget about their tourism industries, right? Right. Even after the “high-speed rails” are built, who is going to want to travel from, say, Alabama to Las Vegas on a train that, while it may achieve a high-end speed of 250 mph or more (roughly 1/2 the speed of a passenger jet), will no doubt be required by the socialist/fascist government envisioned by AOC to stop 40 times on the way in order to be “available to all”?

This atrocity is not worth any more words than I’ve already spent here. The outline is six pages long, can be found at this link, and is chock full of exactly the kind of mushy-headed socialist/fascist thought that has been the overriding, driving goal behind the Climate Scam since its beginnings 50 years ago.

Read it at your own risk.  Or don’t.  Just know that the mask has finally come off of the true face of the “Climate” movement, and it looks exactly the same as every other socialist/fascist face that has come in the past.

That is all.

8 Bits of Intrigue to Look for in Tonight’s State of the Union Event

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, that whole “climate change” scam isn’t working for us, so here’s an idea – let’s use new talking points! –  The grand global climate scam has been running out of steam over the last two years since Donald Trump assumed the presidency and more and more Americans wake up to the reality that they have been heinously deceived by the Al Gores and Leonardo DiCaprios of the world.

So what are the scammers to do? After three solid decades of seeing them simply ramp up the shrillness of their alarmist rhetoric every time their movement began to lose momentum, the alarmists who now run the American Meteorological Society have decided to take a new tack: Tone things down and and become less shrill and more subtle with their brainwashing instead.

Don’t misunderstand – it will be the same old stuff, with every tropical storm described as being completely unprecedented, with every wildfire declared to be a sign of “permanent drought”, giving scary names to every significant cold front and with every thunderstorm pronounced to be the “strongest on record.” But they’ll be calmer about it all, and the plan is to stop blaming your SUV for everything – because pretty much nobody is buying that anyway – and begin instead to connect it all directly to advocacy for … wait for it… leftist government policies!

I swear I don’t make this stuff up:  

“Is it humans or is it not? We really need to get beyond that,” Bernadette Woods Placky, an Emmy award-winning meteorologist who directs the Climate Matters program at Climate Central, told me. Climate Matters is tracking climate trends in 244 cities—including a steadily warming Phoenix. “We are still not getting enough people to talk about it in the ways that matter to human beings in their homes, in their communities, for their family,” she added. “So it is making those connections in ways that really matter to people. It’s a jobs story. It’s an agriculture story. Connect it to the farm bill; boom!”

Boom, indeed. This new scam plan will last about 3 months or until Al Gore puts together another slide show, whichever comes first. Then it will all go back to the traditional alarmist hype, because that is the literal dogma of the Global Church of Climate Change, of which Mr. Gore is the reigning Pope.

The State of the Union address is tonight – here are eight key things to look for that the media isn’t talking about this morning:

  • Will Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee have her customary seat on the aisle so she can get her face on television? – Is the Pope Catholic (ok, that’s an open question)? Does a wild bear poop in the woods? It is a very safe bet that she is already ensconced in her favorite seat as I post this piece up around 7:00 Central Time this morning. There she will sit all day long, forcing staffers to bring her food and sit in for her when she takes bathroom breaks, in her annual effort to show her constituents how important she is. It is possibly the most pathetic tradition in the DC Swamp.
  • Will Ruth Bader Ginsburg give the nation proof of life? – Don’t count on it. And don’t count on any of the news fakers at CNN, MSNBC or the three “major” broadcast networks to make any mention of her absence.
  • Will San Fran Nan have that gerbil running around in her mouth again this year? – Ok, it was probably just a poorly-fitting bridge, but Nancy Pelosi spent the entirety of Trump’s speech last year looking for all the world like she was chasing some sort of living being around in her mouth with her tongue. She’ll be seated behind the President at the podium this time, so the camera will be on her all night long. Hopefully she’s had a trip to the orthodontist since then, because it was not a pretty spectacle.

  • Will West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin have to get Chuck Schumer’s permission on when to stand and applaud this year? – He did last year, and was famously caught on camera quickly sitting down after Schumer gave him a dirty look.  Pathetic.
  • Will Democrat freshmen stage some sort of a disruption? – Don’t be surprised if freshmen Democrats, led by communist Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Muslim extremists Ilhan Omar and Rhashida Tlaib, stage some sort of disruption during the speech. It would be in keeping with their distinct lack of character.
  • Will any white man from the Virginia Democrat delegation show up in blackface or KKK robes? – After this last week, it’s a perfectly valid question.
  • Will the President call Democrats out for their ongoing advocacy of killing live-born babies? – He certainly should, and he should do it in the most unambiguous language possible.
  • Will the President call the fake news media out for its ongoing protection of the blatant racist, infanticide-supporting Governor of Virginia? – Assuming Ralph Northam has still not resigned by the time President Trump takes the podium tonight, how could he not?

There you have them – eight points of intrigue to keep your sharp eyes out for during this year’s rendition of the most tedious and tiresome bit of Kabuki Theater the DC Swamp rolls out to entertain the masses each year. I still wish the President had decided to go deliver this thing out in Pittsburgh, St. Louis or the Rio Grande Valley last week, but hey, it is what it is, so let’s all make the best of it.

That is all.

The Paris Riots are a Rejection of Climate-Imposed Socialism

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This made my eyes water up a bit. – Here is a poem Sen. Orrin Hatch wrote to George and Barbara Bush in January 2013:

For those who can’t read the handwriting, here is the text:

You are resplendent in years
and worth all the tears
as we worry
and hurry
Through each eventful day
in this great land
made greater still
by God’s firm hand
and your strong will
that searched for the better way
every day

Orrin G. Hatch

Beautiful.

Speaking of Bush 41… – All Americans should commend the late President and his family for not using this week of mourning and remembrance as an occasion for lashing out and settling of grudges, as the McCain family did a few months ago. But then, the Bushes are just a different class of people, aren’t they?

Never one to hold a grudge, Bush 41 insisted that President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump be invited to attend his funeral, for the simple reason that that is the gracious and proper thing to do. You can be sure that the eulogies delivered at the service will not be filled with bitterness and potshots taken at the current President, because that is not how the Bush family has ever done things. Again, just a different class of people.

The same cannot be said for our fake news media, sadly. It is as tiresome as it was predictable that the very same media outlets – and many of the same ageing on-air personalities – who demonized George H. W. Bush while he was Vice President and President have taken the occasion of his passing to pretend to have loved him while using it as an excuse to take shots at Donald Trump.

Even Fox News is participating in this sham. I had to just turn the television off yesterday evening as Bret Baier decided it would be a great idea to spend 10 minutes letting the execrable hacks Juan Williams and Mara Liasson go on and on about how “gracious” they always thought Poppy Bush was. That’s certainly a far cry from the despicable things Williams had to say about him while he was in office serving this country.

The reality is that Bush 41, like every other Republican in modern times, had an extremely contentious relationship with the media, which was almost as fake 30 years ago as it is today. At one point in his 1988 campaign he went so far as to ban Newsweek from traveling on his campaign plane due to that particular outlet’s absurdly biased coverage of him. And who will ever forget Poppy’s on-air shouting match with then-CBS News anchor Dan Rather in January 1988?

These were not people and organizations who loved and respected George Bush then, and they only feign love and respect for him now as a cheap means of attacking the current President.

That’s a truth that we all should keep in mind as this week rolls along and the rank hypocrisy emanating from our TV screens turns increasingly putrid.

Paris Burning Watch:

What? Our fake news media misleading the public on the reasons for all the rioting? How can this be? Oh, wait, nevermind.

NBC attempted to cast the rioters’ rage as class warfare over policies that favor the rich over the poor. ABC told its viewers the riots were caused by a simple “fuel tax”. Neither network dared mention the truth about these riots, which is that they are a backlash against taxes on carbon being imposed thanks to the French government’s commitments made under the Paris Climate Accords.

And guess what? The French are not the only people who are rejecting government efforts to seize their money and property as a fool’s means of “doing something” to fight the nebulous concept of “climate change.”

One of the main reasons why Angela Merkel is stepping down as Chancellor of Germany in the coming months is because the population there has become enraged by the massively higher utility costs imposed on them by Merkel’s Energiewende initiative that attempted to transform the country’s power sector from burning coal to getting electricity from hundreds of thousands of giant windmills.

In Canada, the province of Ontario is suing to halt the imposition of a federal carbon tax that child Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is attempting to impose, a tax that threatens to destroy that country’s economy. Just a few weeks ago, the voters in Washington State resoundingly rejected the Democrat-controlled government’s attempt to impose what would have been the first statewide carbon tax in the United States.

The riots in Paris are just the latest signal that we are coming to a real inflection point in the global climate scam. The Globalist community latched onto what they first called “global warming” and later shifted to “climate change” 30 years ago as their newest rationalization for the imposition of worldwide socialism. It is no accident at all that literally every proposed “solution” to “climate change” for the last three decades involves seizing the money and property of individuals so that the ruling class can “do something” about the “problem,” a problem which constantly evolves and which they can never seem to quite describe in a way the average person can understand.

But despite their increasingly shrill and desperate efforts at brainwashing, the public has never embraced this “climate change” as an issue of major concern. In every poll taken that asks voters to list the issues they are most concerned about, “climate change” always, without exception, ranks at or near the bottom.

And in reality, the globalists don’t even buy into their own rhetoric. As I pointed out yesterday, not one single signatory nation to the Paris Accords has met its emissions reductions obligations as of this point. Not one. Most of those countries – which includes every country on earth except the United States – have in fact seen their emissions rise significantly. They don’t even buy their own BS.

So, as all the elitist globalists flew on their carbon-emitting private jets into Poland for their latest multi-million dollar climate conference boondoggle, they were faced with 30 years of frustration at their efforts to impose socialist “solutions” and a growing backlash coming from those being imposed upon. This is where things become dangerous because history tells us that when leftists become frustrated, their sense of entitlement tends to turn them violent. We have certainly seen that here in America over the last two years, with the Democrat Party basically creating the violent Antifa movement following the 2016 elections.

Make no mistake about it: A few election losses and some riots in Paris will not deter these people. They believe they basically have a “divine right” to rule, and in their minds, any means are justified by the ends.

Stay vigilant.

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Climate Scam issues another convenient report filled with inconvenient untruths. –  The new big trick of the Climate Scammers is to take the rising dollar costs of major disasters in the U.S. and elsewhere and pretend that means the disasters are getting worse and more frequent through time.  Hurricane Harvey cost 10 or 20 times – whatever the number is – more than 1961’s Hurricane Carla cost, so that means it was a much worse storm.

Nevermind that, due to the time value of money, a 1961 dollar had ten times the purchasing power than a 2017 dollar.  Nevermind that the population and infrastructure buildout along the Texas Gulf Coast has multiplied several times in the intervening 56 years, Harvey cost ten times more so it was a much worse storm.  Oh, and we’re getting many more such costly storms these days, so it must be due to global warming caused by your SUVs.

It’s a neat trick, and a new report sponsored by multiple federal agencies – though mysteriously authored by well-known non-government Climate alarmists like Texas Tech’s Katherine Hayhoe – issued on Friday uses it to great effect. It’s Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” redux, a veritable climate alarmism tour de force, only without Al Gore.

It makes all the same predictions Gore’s 2006 screed predicted, only without the frightening film: Sea levels rising, bigger and more frequent hurricanes, melting polar ice caps, bigger and more frequent forest fires, lower crop yields, reduced economic output, and on and on and on.

The problem is, literally nothing Gore predicted has come true. In the 12 years since Gore’s film was released, here is what has actually taken place:

  • Global temperatures have fallen slightly;
  • The frequency of hurricanes and cyclonic events in the Western Hemisphere has fallen;
  • The frequency and magnitude of U.S. forest fires has declined dramatically;
  • The arctic polar ice cap has remained essentially unchanged while Antarctic ice has risen substantially;
  • Crop yields in the U.S. and globally have risen dramatically;
  • Sea levels have continued to rise at the same pace at which they have risen since the end of the last ice age, and there is not a damn thing Al Gore or the rest of the human race can do to stop it;
  • U.S. economic output is dramatically higher today, in real dollars, than it was in 2006.

Gore’s projections in 2006 were based on the predictions of climate models and the climate alarmists who invent and use them.  The report issued yesterday, in the midst of the coldest Thanksgiving weekend in modern times, is similarly based on the predictions of climate models and climate alarmists who invent and use them.

It’s the exact same scam in a different package with a different face. Ms. Hayhoe is the same climate alarmist who half a decade ago was assuring us that Texas was in the midst of a “permanent drought”.  Texas has experienced half a dozen 500-year flood events since that time.

The Climate Scam was invented and still exists as a tool for the promotion of global socialism. If you believe the projections of climate models rather than actual climate observations, then you believed Al Gore (and still believe him despite the fact that he was wrong about literally everything) and you will believe this latest report.

The rest of us will keep living our lives and await the issuance of the next alarmist tour de force, once the one released yesterday, like Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth”, has outlived its usefulness to the global socialist crowd.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

Oh, sure, what could possibly go wrong? – The newsfakers at CNN report that climate “scientists” at Harvard and Yale are proposing “an ingenious but as-yet-unproven way to tackle climate change: spraying sun-dimming chemicals into the Earth’s atmosphere.” I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

It just gets better…

The research by scientists at Harvard and Yale universities, published in the journal Environmental Research Letters, proposes using a technique known as stratospheric aerosol injection, which they say could cut the rate of global warming in half.
The technique would involve spraying large amounts of sulfate particles into the Earth’s lower stratosphere at altitudes as high as 12 miles. The scientists propose delivering the sulfates with specially designed high-altitude aircraft, balloons or large naval-style guns.

Mind you, these very same people remain utterly incapable of telling you what your weather is going to be 12 hours from now, but now you are supposed to just meekly sit back and smile and eat your Honey Nut Cheerios while they go about engineering the entire planet to prevent disaster projected by climate models that have unfailingly proven to be wrong.

No, thanks.

That is all.

The Church of Climate Change Adds Another Arrow to Trump’s Quiver

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

News your fake news media will pretty much ignore. –  Erik Solheim, the fake Chief of the UN’s fake environment division, resigned this week after it was revealed that he had racked up travel expenses totaling $488,518 in a span of 668 days.  The UK Guardian reports that Solheim was on the road, traveling on carbon-dioxide-spewing planes, trains and automobiles, for fully 529 of those 668 days, which has to be some sort of record.

The role of the fake agency Solheim led, “UN Environment”, is to highlight “green issues and sustainability.” Obviously, Solheim’s boss decided that his travel bills were neither green nor sustainable.

Although, I have to wonder what the big deal is here.  After all, Solheim’s travel charges pale in comparison to other leaders of the world’s largest leftist religion, i.e. the Climate Scam.

The Pope of the Church of Climate Change, Al Gore, travels all over the world in a gas-guzzling, CO2-spewing private jet, and lives in a massive home whose carbon footprint is roughly equal to that of Rhode Island. The most visible Cardinal of that false Church, actor Leonardo DiCaprio, lives and flies in similar luxury, and also owns a gasoline-powered yacht that is similar in size to a Chinese aircraft carrier. Gore and DiCaprio each rack up higher bills traveling the world in most weeks than Solheim did in his infamous 668 days, and nobody’s firing them.

And what about all these various “Climate” conferences this religious cult holds in various parts of the world 10-12 times every year? These conferences see thousands of cultists, along with the Church’s royalty, clogging air traffic and overwhelming local airport capacities with their private jets and tying up 100% of the assets of gas-and-diesel-fueled limousine services for weeks at a time.

My point is not to defend Solheim for his profligacy – paid in large part by U.S. taxpayers, by the way – but to note just how ordinary he really is when taken in context of the Climate Scam movement writ large. In a rather perverse sense, maybe that’s why the U.S. news media is studiously ignoring his story.

Hey, why are we a part of the U.N. again? – Perhaps Solheim’s story, pedestrian as it seems in the context of the Climate Scam, is relevant in another way: It does provide just one more reason for President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) to question the wisdom of the U.S. remaining a member of this despicable and depraved collection of despots, thugs and grifters from around the world. Solheim is one of the grifters, and the U.N. employs thousands of them.

The President regularly questions the utility of the U.S. remaining a part of the international body, whose main mission in recent years has been to issue resolutions condemning America’s most important ally in the Middle East, Israel.  The most recent example of this came on November 16, when the question was raised once again in the wake of the U.N.’s annual vote on a resolution condemning Israel’s settlements in the Golan Heights.

Donald Trump is going to be President for at least two more years, and most likely for another six. The despots, thugs and grifters at the U.N. just keep poking this increasingly impatient bear, and do so at their own risk.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

 

Why do liberals hate women, Part 6,563. – In a move as predictable as the sun rising in the East, the LA County District Attorney’s office refused to bring charges against The Creepy Porn Lawyer for his alleged assault on his girlfriend a couple of weeks ago:

Thus, after more than a year of screaming “we must believe all women in these domestic abuse accusations!!!!” and the Creepy Porn Lawyer himself attempting to derail a Supreme Court nominee with false charges of rape, liberals in power demonstrate one more time that their rhetoric where protecting abused women is concerned is utterly meaningless.

Ladies, wake up.  The Democrat Party of the United States is at war with you. It just elected a woman-abusing thug to become Attorney General in Minnesota. One of its judges just ruled a law banning genital mutilation of females to be unconstitutional (think about that). That Party has been completely co-opted by radical Islamism, trans-genderism and the woman-and-child-abusing Hollywood culture.

You continue voting for its candidates at your own risk. How many more examples do you need?

That is all.
