Another Lefty in Blackface and 50 Years of Climate Alarmism

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

What is it with leftist politicians and this blackface thing? – Was it just a really big deal among white lefties in the 1980s and 1990s to do blackface parties? Asking because, having never been a lefty, I would have never been invited to their shindigs (all you Millennials and Gen-Zers will have to google that reference).

Anyways, leftist Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has now achieved the Ralph Northam and Hillary Clinton badge of honor, as a photo of him in full blackface (the fawning Canadian press is calling it “brownface” as if that makes it all better) at a party that supposedly took place in 2001 has gone public. Oh, and check out the placement of his hand, also painted black – it’s like he’s channeling Joe Biden:

Of course, Trudeau was just 29 at the time, so presumably his defense will be that he was just young and stupid at that time, whereas now he is 48 and still stupid. So, I’m not sure that defense is going to work out for him.

But something had better work, since this new revelation comes in the midst of his campaign for re-election. The incident just adds trouble atop an already troubled situation, as Trudeau has been plagued by allegations that he improperly interfered in a corruption case against an engineering company that had been a supporter of his election. Trudeau has denied any improprieties, but two members of his cabinet felt so strongly that his administration had acted improperly that they tendered their resignations.

But hey, Northam’s own blackface photo surfaced a year ago now, and he’s still in office, living fat and happy with no one in the Democrat Party or the U.S. fake news media bothering to talk about him anymore. Given that Canada’s media is every bit as fake as America’s, you have to assume he’ll survive. After all, being a racist is fine if your politics are “correct.” Right? Right.

Kudos to Tony Heller and the Competitive Enterprise Institute – Myron Ebell and Steven J. Milloy, working in conjunction with Climate Realist Tony Heller, have published a wonderful compilation of the last 50 years of failed climate change alarmist predictions at the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI). Everyone should take the time to go through it.

We tend to be lulled by the massive climate scam propaganda industry into believing that climate alarmism is some sort of recent thing. But the truth, as Heller catalogs daily at his RealClimateScience website and Twitter feed is that this has all been going on in our fake news media for a century or more. Ebell and Milloy take their piece back to 1967 because that was the year that the greatest climate fraud before Al Gore, Paul Ehrlich, began to come to prominence in the media, using his dire predictions at the time of a new ice age that was always just around the corner.

One early Ehrlich statement, from 1969, that really grabs the attention is this one from an article in the reliable old New York Times: “The problem with almost all environmental problems, says Paul Ehrlich, the population biologist, “is that by the time we have enough evidence to convince people, you’re dead.”

And yet, here we are 50 years later, somehow still alive, and with the fake news media still somehow referencing Ehrlich, who has alternately said we’d all be dead from an ice age, overpopulation, famine, the ozone hole, acid rain and global warming, as some sort of credible figure on the subject.

So, what has really happened over that half-century span, as alarmists have worked to raise public fears over all manner of environmental problems, both real and imagined? Our environment has almost immeasurably cleaner, thanks to the miracle of human ingenuity and technological advancement.

The ice age that Ehrlich predicted to come by the 1990s never came. Nor did the mass famines he said would kill billions by 1980s due to overpopulation, thanks to gigantic advancements in crop yields and food distribution networks. According to data compiled by the World Bank, almost half the global population lived in extreme poverty in 1970. Today, fewer than 10% do.

Remember acid rain? That problem was effectively dealt with and today is almost non-existent. How about that hole in the ozone layer? Remember how that was going to kill everyone when it was discovered over Antartica in 1985? This week it was reported to be the smallest it has been in decades, thanks to technology and human ingenuity.

In the 1970s, due mainly to lax regulation of coal-fired power plants and car emissions, the air in the United States was frankly putrid, dangerous to breathe in places like Los Angeles and New York and Pittsburgh and Detroit. Today, thanks to advancing technology and human ingenuity, our air is light years cleaner. Indeed, the successful removal of well over 95% of all real pollutants from our air was one of the motivations for the alarmist community to shift focus to claiming that CO2 – the very basis for life on earth – is now a danger.

Also in the 1970s, water in the U.S. was a horror story in many parts of the country. Rivers were still used by cities as outlets for raw sewage flows. The Cuyahoga River in Cleveland was so dirty and filled with refuse from refineries and other industrial plants that it actually caught fire in 1969. That incident and other horror tales led to the passage of the Clean Water Act shortly thereafter, and thanks to human ingenuity and technological advancement, water all over America is vastly cleaner today.

All of those things and many more have happened in the last half-century, since Ehrlich predicted we’d all be dead because nobody cared.

It turns out that Americans care a lot about the environment. What Americans don’t care much for is being constantly lied to by charlatans and scammers like Ehrlich, Gore and the climate alarmist fear lobby.

Thanks to Ebell, Malloy and Heller for reminding us all of that today.

That is all.

Morning Joe and Maddow Go Full Blown Deranged Over Trump/Kim Meeting

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those words) took the wonderful step on Friday of issuing a pardon to former Navy Submariner Kristian Saucier.  Saucier was persecuted (and yes, I did mean to type that word, not “prosecuted”) by the Obama Justice Department in 2016 for having taken photos of a naval nuclear guidance system with his cell phone, ultimately being sentenced to serve a year in prison during the same time Obama’s DOJ was actively helping the Pantsuit Princess avoid any punishment at all for her illegal email server, and trying to fix the general election on her behalf.

Where we know that the Coughing Crook’s email server – on which gobs of classified information was transmitted – was hacked by several hostile nations, there was no allegation at all that Mr. Saucier had shared the photos of the guidance system with anyone.

At her Friday press briefing, White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders had this to say:

“Mr. Saucier was 22 years old at the time of his offenses and has served out his 12-month sentence. He has been recognized by his fellow service members for his dedication, skill and patriotic spirit,” she said.

“While serving, he regularly mentored younger sailors and served as an instructor for new recruits. The sentencing judge found that Mr. Saucier’s offense stands in contrast to his commendable military service,” she said. “The president is appreciative of Mr. Saucier’s service to the country.”

So, yet another aspect of the pathetic, un-American Obama “legacy” has been reversed by Donald J. Trump.  That, folks, is #WINNING.

Tony Heller – who uses the pseudonym “Steve Goddard” on his Twitter account – has done a great job of documenting how Obama climate activists at NASA and NOAA have systematically created “global warming” where none has taken place in the last 20 years by going back in time to make the past appear cooler by falsifying the global temperature records.

Heller issued this tweet on Friday:

 

To which I replied:

Yes, I know I misspelled “Grapes” thanks to a recalcitrant “e” key, but you get the point.  Goddard did, too, replying with:

Can’t wait to see it.  Of course, all the snowflakes and social justice warriors will think the video is actually a documentary.

If you don’t follow Heller at his website, “The Deplorable Climate Science Blog,” you are missing out.

The Dimwits over at MSNBC went absolutely berserk in response to President Trump’s announcement that he is planning to meet with North Korea’s Crazy Little Fat Guy in the next few months to discuss the de-nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.  Joe Scarborough, appealing to his demented fan base in the upper East side of Manhattan, claimed that Trump really isn’t planning to engage in negotiations with the mad little dictator.

With his disgusting mistress Mika nodding her head beside him, the former fake Republican congressman said that Trump only made the announcement to distract attention away from the media’s obsession with porn starlet Stormy Daniels, who is claiming to have had an affair with Mr. Trump a decade ago.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

That was MSNBC’s wisdom circa Friday morning.  On Thursday evening, it was even worse, as the very odd Rachel Maddow went on an epic rant that left The Mooch speculating she needed to “take a suppository” to get over it.  Here is just a snippet of the Madness of Maddow:

“You might think another president in this circumstance, you can imagine a president asking himself or herself, ‘why has no other American president ever agreed to do this? Why has no sitting American president ever met with a leader from North Korea? Why has that never happened in all the decades North Korea existed as a nation? Should I take that to mean that this might be particularly risky or even an unwise move?'”

“It has been through Republican and Democratic administrations, the whole strategy not only for the United States but for the United States as leader of the free world, to the extent that we are, has been to treat North Korea as a pariah state and thereby try to change their behavior.”

Of course, Maddow lacks the self-awareness to ask herself why it is that the posture taken towards North Korea by previous presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama had led directly to the incredibly dangerous situation that President Trump inherited when he assumed office last year.  She is so consumed by Trump hatred that she cannot even consider that taking the same posture vis a vis North Korea over and over again for 25 years only to achieve the same terrible result is in fact the very definition of insanity, and that possibly, just possibly, a change of direction might thus be in order.  But hey, that’s totally understandable:  She is a liberal, after all.

Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.

That is all.
