Also known as the jihadi four legged sex machine.

Via Daily Mail:

Goats are shrinking as a result of climate change, researchers have claimed.

They say Alpine goats now weigh about 25 per cent less than animals of the same age in the 1980s. …….

Simply outstanding! 

I’ll try to take a look at the study, itself, for more mockery with truth!

BOOM!!!!! The Failure Of Our Education System Teaches Racism By Not Teaching!!!!!

image

I ….. this ….  bullshit!!!!

I hurt from this.  This is ignorance on display.  This is the result of an education system hell bent on making the American public ignorant.

Elementary School Throws Ebola Tantrum over Two Kids from Rwanda

Two elementary school children are being kept from attending Howard Yocum Elementary School in New Jersey because they recently moved to the U.S. from Rwanda, prompting Ebola fears from other parents — even though Rwanda is 2,600 miles from the west African region afflicted by the Ebola outbreak.

The school informed teachers of the two children who were set to start school today, but word got out and parents objected. The family has “elected” to keep their children home for the twenty-one day potential incubation period.

As Fox 29 pointed out, Rwanda is as far from the Ebola outbreak as Seattle is from Philadelphia. That didn’t stop the parents of Yocum Elementary from saying the following on record:

“I don’t feel comfortable sending my daughter to school with people who could be infected with Ebola.”

“Really concerns me. I don’t want to keep my boy out of school.”

“Tell us when we come into the door. Don’t smile in my face and have a secret like that.”

“Anybody from that area should just stay there until all this stuff is resolved. There’s nobody affected here; let’s just keep it that way.”

“I think for another couple weeks. I don’t think it would hurt, I mean you have a lot of children that are involved, so I don’t think it would hurt.”

Breitbart also has this to say ….

RWANDA TO SCREEN VISITORS FROM UNITED STATES, SPAIN FOR EBOLA

On Tuesday, Rwanda announced all visitors from United States and Spain will be screened for Ebola. The new system was implemented just a few days after a New Jersey school banned two students from Ebola-free Rwanda.

“On October 19, the Rwandan Ministry of Health introduced new Ebola Virus Disease screening requirements,” said the US Embassy in Rwanda in a statement. “Visitors who have been in the United States or Spain during the last 22 days are now required to report their medical condition—regardless of whether they are experiencing symptoms of Ebola—by telephone by dialing 114 between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. for the duration of their visit to Rwanda (if less than 21 days), or for the first 21 days of their visit to Rwanda.”

The Embassy continued: “The Government of Rwanda screens each visitor entering Rwanda for symptoms of Ebola at its land borders and at the Kigali International Airport. The screening includes taking each visitor’s body temperature via a laser thermometer. Each visitor must also complete a detailed questionnaire concerning whether they have any symptoms of illness and where they have traveled in the past 22 days.”

There are no cases of Ebola in Rwanda. The country is 2,600 miles east of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea where the Ebola outbreak is the worst. Liberian Thomas Eric Duncan died of Ebola in Dallas, TX and two nurses tested positive for the disease after they treated him. Two missionaries in Spain died after they visited West Africa. A nurse recently tested positive. ………

The school recanted their original decisions and apologized. The two children will be allowed to attend class next week. Superintendent Beth Norcia released a letter on the school website:

As you know, the Maple Shade School District has been the object of extensive media coverage and community dialogue over the past several days. Our schools have become the unwitting “face” of our nation’s fears with regard to pressing health concerns.

If we step back as a community, it is clear that we are of one mind. We all care about our children. New parents were anxious to enroll their children in our public school system. A staff member was anxious to allay any possible fears even before they arose. Community members raised questions about potential health risks to all of our children.

We will, however, consider the unintended consequences of our messages more carefully in the future. No matter how well intentioned, a message that originated within our schools created conflict and concern within the Maple Shade community. We offer our sincere apologies.

The “F”???? 

And, this, my friends, is the result of an education system more concerned with teaching multiculturalism, rather than simple geography.  Pursuing the route our current education system has chosen lends itself to the ignorance which leads to racism. 

It’s simply unacceptable that teachers, products of our education system, and administrators, again, products of our education system, don’t know basic geography.  If they don’t know it, they can’t possibly teach it. 

To be sure, Rwanda has many challenges.  Currently, Ebola isn’t one of them.  Oddly, I believe the elementary schools did the children a favor.  I certainly wouldn’t want my children or grand children educated by such schools.

But, why won’t our schools teach basic and simple political geography?

Because, when properly taught, political geography isn’t so “simple”, after all. 

‘Why is a nation’s borders their borders’?

That’s the next question, once one teaches what countries are where.  Answer that question, and then, you’ve taught something. 

But, you actually have to know the “where” before you can know the “why”.  You have to know the “what” is “where” before you can know the “why”.  And, the “who”.  But, to know the “who”, you have to understand the “when”. 

Heck, along the way, during the quest for the answers to such questions, one may learn about things such as communicable diseases, economics, history, math, navigation, languages, sociology, ……..

Or, we can fail our children, as we have so obviously done with the supposed adults running these schools, and let them dwell in ignorance and teach our grandchildren the ignorance of these supposed “educators”. 

Damnit!!!!! WAKE UP, AMERICA!!!!!

Breitbart Political Math Fail!!!!!

image

I’m so damned irked at these people.  They’d rather lose than have Repubs in control of the Senate.  It’s stupid.  As much as they’d want it to be, it isn’t.  There are only two parties in consideration!!!!  I understand, truly, I do.  But, we need to address reality, instead of the fictional world Breitbart seems intent on living in.  And, this is why I know there is a leftist in a management position at Breitbart. No true conservative would avoid reality as much as Breitbart is. 

So, I see this at Breitbart …..

LOUISIANA POLL: DEMOCRAT MARY LANDRIEU IN THE LEAD

Holy smokes!!!!  How did that happen???????  I’d better read this!!!!!!  ……

Louisiana’s Democratic incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) is beating GOP candidate Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) in the latest poll in the state, leading him 36 percent to 32 percent.

The Tea Party-backed Col. Rob Maness trails both candidates with just 6 percent, according to the new WAFB-TV poll.

:-|

Really? ….. REALLY???? ……. F’n REALLY!!!!!!!!

image

Oh, that’s real news conservatives can use, Breitbart, you f’n morons!  In the 3-way race, it’s been that way for some time now.  But, what is it head-to-head?

Though Landrieu is currently leading, Cassidy would defeat her if he got into a runoff against her, according to the poll—which will happen if no candidate gets 50 percent of the vote. The poll, according to WAFB-TV, shows that 43 percent would favor Cassidy in the runoff, while just 40 percent would favor Landrieu.

Oh, so you can read RCP!!!!  That’s shocking!  Because given your recent efforts, I would swear you didn’t know how.  As it turns out, you’re simply too stupid to understand what the polling it telling you. 

image

 

Well, heck, maybe this was just click bait, and not intended to depress the conservative vote.  ……..

Interestingly, however, Landrieu’s favorability ratings are much higher than Cassidy’s.

What?  Really?  Damn!!!!  Maybe there is something to this post!!!!  Maybe, it isn’t a done deal if Maness drops out of the race!!!  Maybe, Landrieu has the edge on Cassidy!!!!! 

I’ve got to check out the “Landrieu’s favorability ratings are much higher than Cassidy’s” stuff!!!!

“Respondents were also asked their opinion of both Cassidy and Landrieu,” WAFB-TV wrote. The analysis explained that “26 percent said they have an extremely or very favorable opinion of Cassidy while 21 percent said somewhat favorable and 35 percent said not very favorable.”

Well, that’s not great, but, it isn’t bad, either, considering La has a very large Dim population.  47% said they have a very favorable or somewhat favorable opinion of Cassidy.  Let’s check out the favorable ratings of Landrieu!!!  They must be over the moon!!!!!

“For Landrieu, 34 percent said they had an extremely or somewhat favorable opinion of her, 13 percent said somewhat favorable, and 46 percent said not very favorable. Some respondents declined to answer certain questions,” WAFB-TV continued.

Hmmm…….. “Landrieu’s favorability ratings are much higher than Cassidy’s.”  That’s what Breitbart said, after their headline stated Landrieu was “in the lead”.   But, last I recall, 34% + 13% was 47%.  Mind you, I never took any Common Core math, so, there’s that. 

What does Breitbart believe it’s accomplishing with this wordsmithing?  What are they trying to accomplish?

Maness has 0% chance of winning.  It’s too bad.  I think he’d make a terrific representative.  But, he has zero chance of winning.  Even if Cassidy were to suddenly drop over and die or drop out of the race, Maness will still lose.  He can’t gain even half of the Repubs vote as it is.  How would he gain 10%-20% fence riders? (There’s not that many.  There is about 6%-8% fence riders who would vote.) They would all default to Landrieu!!!  The rest will either vote for their politician of choice if motivated, or stay home. 

Either Breitbart is too stupid to understand the paradigm of political voters, or they’re intentionally trying to tank the Cassidy campaign.   …… I don’t believe they are so stupid that they can’t do basic math.  I also don’t believe they are as stupid as to not understand voting and simple politics. 

They are intentionally trying to tank the Cassidy campaign.  They also must know Maness has absolutely no chance of winning, regardless of a runoff, or not. 

Look at the post.  Breitbart isn’t reporting anything.  They’re not even reporting to conservatives.  They’re taking information and twisting the meaning of said information and then propagandizing their readers with it. 

Look if it was bad news for conservatives, then I’d be all for the news.  News, good and bad need stated. 

But, what they’re reporting isn’t even news.  The poll is exactly the same as the preceding polls. It’s stated the same thing the last 5 polls have told us.  Cassidy wins unless something really stupid happens.  And, he stands a good chance of winning in the first round if Maness is out of the picture.  The one and only thing the Maness campaign can do is cause Cassidy to lose.  Breitbart knows this.  If there’s an off chance they’re simply too stupid to know this, then they’d be leftards.  But, if Breitbart does know this and they print this idiocy anyway, then they’re leftards.

I’m interested in readers opinion on this.  Please sound off.

Shock News!!!!! UN Leftards Attack Detroit Leftards!!!!!

Poor little leftards of Detroit.  They just can’t catch a break…….

Detroit officials bristle at UN visit, scolding over water shut-offs

Detroit officials are fuming after two visiting United Nations lawyers scolded the city for cutting off water to delinquent customers and described the shut-offs as a “human rights” violation. 

The response follows a three-day visit to Detroit — which desperately is trying to bail itself out of bankruptcy — from two representatives with the U.N. Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.

“It is contrary to human rights to disconnect water from people who simply do not have the means to pay their bills,” Catarina de Albuquerque, one of the two representatives, said Monday at the conclusion of their visit. 

“I heard testimonies from poor, African American residents of Detroit who were forced to make impossible choices — to pay the water bill or to pay their rent.”

But the mayor’s office blasted the U.N. review as one-sided. Alexis Wiley, Mayor Mike Duggan’s top aide, said the city is “very disappointed” with them. 

“They weren’t interested in the facts,” she said. “They took a position and never once [before Monday] reached out to the city for data.”

The policy change shuts off water to businesses and residents who either are 60 days past due or owe more than $150.

Detroit — the country’s largest municipality to file for bankruptcy — reports making 27,000 shut-offs from Jan. 1 to Sept. 30.

Most shut-offs were halted for several weeks this summer to give residents an opportunity to enter a payment plan, but they have resumed with 5,100 shut-offs in September alone.

Detroit officials have defended the decision, arguing that customers collectively owed more than $115 million in delinquent water-and-sewer department payments before the city took action and that their efforts are improving the situation.

The department said it collected about $2.5 million in 2012 and 2013 and about $3.7 million in the first nine months of this year.

Ordinary residents aren’t the only ones subject to the policy. Service was shut off to one city council member. And an investigation by a local news organization found city officials have collected on the more than $80,000 owed by the Joe Louis Arena, home of the NHL’s Detroit Red Wings, and roughly $55,000 past due from Ford Field, where the NFL’s Detroit Lions play home games.

Wiley also said Detroit is helping residents by improving customer service, getting 33,000 people in the payment plans and cutting residential calls for water assistance by more than 50 percent.

De Albuquerque and the other representative, Leilani Farha, visited Detroit after activists appealed to the U.N. for assistance. Among them was the American Civil Liberties Union, whose Michigan director Kary Moss said: “It’s unfortunate that, in the Great Lakes State, we need a visit from an international body to remind us of our most fundamental obligation to our citizens. Water is life.” …..

There’s more to read at the link.

What a precarious and untenable situation the leftards in office are in! 

Make no mistake, the people running Detroit, are, have been for decades, and will be tomorrow, leftards.  They’re Dims.  They embrace the leftist philosophies. 

This is a beautiful example of leftists running out of other people’s money. 

You see, not only did Detroit have an unlimited supply of water from the Great Lakes, they also had cash paying customers ……. in the outlying towns and cities, buying water from Detroit.  They made a great amount of money from the sales of water through their water systems, to other people.  This essentially allowed them to make the water service to their own residents free!  Sure, they’d send you a bill, but, payment was optional. 

They never bothered to keep up their system, and they kept charging the outlying towns and people more and more for the water to service their own.  Eventually, the people in the outlying areas figured out it would be cheaper to just build their own system and provide water to their own people.  ………. CRAP!!!!! 

So, Detroit ran out of other people’s money.  Now they have to fix their own water system in order to be able to provide the service to their own people.  ……..  CRAP!!!!!! 

All the while, leftists were telling other leftists water should be free!  It’s a right!

Well, one can certainly make the argument that water is a right.  It is necessary for life.  But, if it is to be a “right”, one must certainly recognize the difference between a “right” to water, and a right to free speech, or practice of religion. 

You see, water is a tangible thing which has a demand.  In all things which are tangible and have a demand, there is a cost associated with it.  Someone has to pay for it.  In this case, it isn’t so much the water, which is unlimited in supply, but, the delivery of the water.  You see, people want their water delivered on demand, and clean.  I’m certain no one would bother anyone who decided to fetch a pail of water from Lake Michigan.  It isn’t the water Michigan is shutting off.  It is the delivery and cleaning which they are shutting off from people unwilling or unable to pay for.  For those people, they were always taught that clean water delivery was free.  There were taught this by their elected officials, and it was reinforced that it should be free by their dismal education system. 

So, now, we have two people from the UN telling Detroit what bastards they are for shutting off people’s water.  Apparently, the people from the UN are oblivious (goes without saying) to the fact that Detroit is in bankruptcy.  If Detroit goes belly up, then there will be no one to deliver the water to the people of Detroit, free or otherwise! 

Detroit has to pay for the transportation of the water, the upkeep of the system, the purification of the water, the removal and transport of the waste water, and the workers and equipment to do such tasks. 

Here’s a simple fact.  If Detroit and the people of Detroit are unwilling or unable to pay for their own water and upkeep, then there’s no reason for Detroit.  The laws of economics and the laws of nature apply to people.  Sometimes, I wish they wouldn’t.  But, they do.  The laws are intractable.  Someone has to pay for the water service the people of Detroit want.  It isn’t a question as to whether or not the service should be free.  It can not be free.  Someone must pay for the water service.

Sigh …… Air Drops …. Kurds, ISIS, And Propaganda

image

So, there’s a huge hubbub about ISIS getting supplies which were supposedly marked for the Kurds, who are fighting ISIS.  The ISIS lunatics even released a video.  I won’t link it, because it’s easily found simply by searching for it. 

Now, is it propaganda ISIS is putting out, or is it horrid incompetence which allowed them to get to weapons and munitions which were suppose to go to the Kurds, or, is it something more cynical?

The answer is a bit more complicated than that, but, the answer is also very simple. 

But, before I get to that, let me show you another report related to this …..

US weapons airdrop turning tide in fight for Kobani, Kurdish officials say

Kurdish officials in Kobani said Tuesday that weapons air-dropped by the United States early Monday are “making a difference” as its forces are wrestling for control of the Syrian border town with the Islamic State.

A Fox News crew near Kobani witnessed two U.S. airstrikes against ISIS positions inside the town Tuesday, as well as sporadic clashes between militants and the Kurds.

The attacks followed a reported series of overnight airstrikes and two ISIS car bombs on Kurdish positions.

Turkey said it was helping Iraqi Kurdish fighters cross into Syria to support their brethren fighting ISIS, although activists inside Kobani told The Associated Press that no forces had arrived by Monday evening, raising questions about whether the mission was really under way.

“We don’t need more fighters,” one Kurd defender reportedly said. “We need more guns.”

Kurdish and Washington officials reportedly are saying that more weapons drops are expected in the coming days.  …..

There’s more to read at the links provided.

Now, as to what it is, yes, it’s propaganda by ISIS.  But, also, it’s probably true they got a hold of some of the supplies we dropped for the Kurds. 

Look at the picture above.  This is a typical air drop.  No, when the munitions hit the ground, they don’t line up like they came out of the aircraft. 

It is very conceivable one or two, or more crates drifted off the intended course.  Such is the nature of air-drops. 

Is there something more cynical going on?

The information we’re receiving is coming from our media and government.  As we all know, both consistently and constantly lie to us.  That said, I don’t believe they would be attempting to arm ISIS while pretending to arm the Kurds, only to be clowned as incompetent while doing so …….. though with this current administration, it does seem like they often wish to be portrayed as incompetent rather than evil. 

Again, more than likely, what happened is what happens often in such drops ……. a couple of crates missed.  Remember the Normandy invasion?  Parachutes and wind drafts haven’t changed much since then. 

This isn’t to say the strategic execution isn’t incompetent.  It shouldn’t be necessary to airdrop that close to the enemy.  The supplies should have arrived weeks ago in a much more secure location and then dispersed to the Kurds.  But, that’s more to do with team Zero than anything else.

Gems 2014 — October 21 Scripture Selection: 2 Thessalonians 2

Guest post by Jeanette Andrade

October 21 Scripture Selection: 2 Thessalonians 2

Food for Thought: 2 Thes. 2:9-12

Before delving into today’s topic, let us first read I Tim. 2:4-6: “who (God) desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time,”

Based on the fulfilled prophecies and “signs of the times,” it would appear that our time on earth is running short. Eventually, God is going to shut this whole thing down, and He was kind enough to let us know about His plans and how they would unfold. In fact, because of His love beyond measure, He sent so many people to warn the others of the destruction and consequences that would come on those who would refuse Jesus Christ and the sacrifice that He paid for all mankind. Yet their warnings continue to be ignored and the truth rejected by people who prefer to live life their own way, independent of the Giver of life. As verse 10 puts it, “because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” Further, in verse 12, “that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

I sure would not want to be counted among those people! There are some reading this today who urgently need to take heed to this warning and grab on to the extended hand of Jesus Christ before it is too late. There will be, indeed, a time when it will be too late to receive Him as Savior and follow Him. Regardless of when the world will come to an end and we find ourselves in front of the God of all creations on Judgment Day, there is no guarantee of even tomorrow. One’s personal time on this earth could come to an abrupt end at any time. Then what?! Too late!!

Thank God for here and now! Second Corinthians 6:2 says, “Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” Hear the warning. Receive the truth. Invite Jesus Christ to be Lord of your life, and do not look back.

Report Worth Noting!!!! US Reportedly Drops Arms, Munitions, And Medical Supplies To Kurds!!!!

image

Right now, I don’t have a lot to say about this.  But, it’s noteworthy. 

US drops arms, ammunition to Kurds fighting ISIS in Kobani

The U.S. military said late Sunday that it had dropped weapons, ammunition, and medical supplies to Kurdish forces battling to hold the Syrian border town of Kobani against Islamic State militants.

The airdrops were the first of their kind and followed weeks of U.S. and coalition airstrikes in and near Kobani. Earlier Sunday, U.S. Central Command (CentCom) said that it had launched 11 airstrikes overnight in the area.

ADVERTISEMENT

CentCom said U.S. C-130 cargo planes made multiple drops of arms and supplies provided by Kurdish authorities in Iraq. It said they were intended to enable continued resistance to Islamic State efforts to take full control of Kobani. 

Fox News is told by Kurdish officials in the area that they have received the supplies, dropped in open land held by Kurdish fighters. 

In a conference call with reporters after CentCom announced the airdrops, senior administration officials said three C-130 planes dropped 27 bundles of small arms, ammunition and medical supplies. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity under ground rules set by the White House.

One official said that while the results of the mission are still being assessed, it appeared that “the vast majority” of the supplies reached the intended Kurdish fighters.

The official also said the C-130s encountered no resistance from the ground in Syria during their flights in and out of Syrian airspace.

The airdrops are almost certain to anger the Turkish government, which has said it would oppose any U.S. arms transfers to the Kurdish rebels in Syria. Turkey views the main Kurdish group in Syria as an extension of the Turkish Kurd group known as the PKK, which has waged a 30-year insurgency in Turkey and is designated a terror group by the U.S. and by NATO.

President Obama called Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday to discuss the situation in Syria and notify him of the plan to make airdrops Sunday, one administration official told reporters. He would not describe Erdogan’s reaction, but said U.S. officials are clear about Turkey’s opposition to any moves that help Kurdish forces that Turkey views as an enemy.

One of the administration officials said the airdrops should be seen as a humanitarian move. He said U.S. officials believe that if Kobani were to fall, the Islamic State militants would massacre Kurds in the town.

Another administration official said “you might see more” U.S. re-supply missions to benefit the Kurdish fighters in Kobani in the days ahead. Yet another administration official said a land route to resupply the Kurds had been under discussion but would require Turkish cooperation. He said talks on resupply needs and means would continue. ……..

I’m too much of a skeptic to believe the US has kicked Turkey to the curb.  I simply don’t see that as happening.  So, what else could this signify?

And, Yet, There Is No Supporting Evidence Any Of This Actually Occurred

HOTTEST APRIL ON RECORD..
HOTTEST MAY ON RECORD..
HOTTEST JUNE ON RECORD..
HOTTEST AUGUST ON RECORD..
HOTTEST SEPTEMBER ON RECORD..
‘CLIMATE CHANGE HAS NOT STOPPED!’

 

The above links are from HuffPo’s “Green” page. 

As most of us would know, Steve Goddard has done an excellent job of documenting the fraud with the numbers of the temperature records.  For those unfamiliar, just click on the link and scroll down and read.  It’s that simple.  That’s Steve’s shtick, and I’m happy to leave it to him.  I have, btw, spot checked his sources and numbers and he’s spot on.

This year, it seems the lunatics are bound and determined to have a record hot year, again. 

Most readers would know I don’t dwell on the temp record that much.  It’s mostly because even if the lunatics were honestly reporting the numbers, I don’t believe they would hold any meaning, anyway.  It’s like trying to average chairs and tables.  It’s a useless and meaningless number.  And, to me, this is funny.  It’s funny because the lunatics themselves admit the same thing when they tell us the hot went to the deep ocean to hide.  When they make such a claim, what they’re telling you is to avoid putting any meaning into a global temperature average because the hot moved from the surface to somewhere else, rendering the global temperature average meaningless. 

Of course, now that NASA and NOAA have gone into complete fraud mode, they’re now going to tell us the global temperature now does hold meaning. 

But, what I do here, in regard to the climate, is to look for some actual, quantifiable, significance to the claims of global warming/climate change/thermogeddon ….. whateve ….

In spite of all the dire proclamations, scares, and prognostications, there is none.  Let me repeat this unequivocally.  There is no evidence any of this imaginary warming has done anything. 

I can’t possibly post all of the links to the posts I’ve done which demonstrate this.  But, readers are invited to use the “search” feature of this blog.  In the upper right corner there’s a “search” text box. 

image

One can search for hurricanes, floods, snow, ice, sea level, fires, polar bears, droughts, crops/food production …. and just about any bit of idiocy the lunatics claimed climate change was changing, and you’ll find it hasn’t. 

If the world is warming because of CO2, there’s absolutely no evidence there are any negative effects from it. 

Personally, I don’t believe the world is warming.  And, I think before CO2 could be pertinent to our energy balance, it would have to be more than tenfold the amount today. 

Look, global crop production is up.  Hurricanes are down.  Strong tornadoes are down.  There is no evidence of increasing SLR .  None.  Global ice extent hasn’t changed in a decade, and Northern Hemisphere snow extent hasn’t changed in over 30 years.  The Polar Bear population is thriving.  Wild fires are not increasing, and neither are floods nor droughts according to the sparse global data we have.  For the national data of the US and Canada, wild fires are generally decreasing and in the US droughts are decreasing. 

There’s simply nothing there except self-loathing, worry, and totalitarian socialism. 

One would think the laws of math would kick in and the lunatics would find something, just by random chance, in which they could point to as being correlated to their imaginary increase the earth’s temperature.  But, there’s nothing there.  There’s nothing anywhere!  It’s all vacant sophistry! 

Getting back to HuffPo, NASA, and NOAA, and their hottest ever months …… I don’t believe it is unreasonable to expect the continuous months of “hottest ever” to manifest in some manner or another.  If we’re to take this seriously, then this is like a cause with no effect.  But, heck, forget the record months.  If we’re to listen to the nutters, then, we’re told nearly every year after 1997 was hotter than all the other previous years.  That’s 16, going on 17 years of the hottest period in the history of the modern world!  But, for all of that, we can find no manifestation of it?

Oh sure, with some statistical acrobatics and gymnastics one can find an alarming trend about something meaningless, but, only with such acrobatics and contorting gymnastics.  But, there’s nothing real being manifested.  What a horrid waste of time, energy, money, and brainpower.  And, yet, we cannot stop, until they stop.

Said The Man Who Has Shifted His Position 3 Times In 3 Years ……. Zero Tries To Revive Debunked Leftard Meme

image

I thought this was hilarious. 

So, Zero chimed in on the recent supreme court decision to reject gay-marriage appeals from 5 states. (Which is not what this post is about.) 

HuffPo and the New Yorker had this …..

Obama: ‘I Think The Equal Protection Clause Does Guarantee Same-Sex Marriage’ In All States

President Barack Obama seems to have changed his tune on gay marriage, telling The New Yorker’s Jeffrey Toobin he believes same-sex couples in all 50 states should be allowed to marry under the equal protection clause of the Constitution.

Obama first publicly backed gay marriage in May 2012, but noted he thought the issue should be left to the states. Speaking with Toobin for the Oct. 27 issue of The New Yorker, Obama said the best Supreme Court decision since he took office was the recent rejection of gay marriage appeals from five states, a move the president said is “a consequential and powerful signal of the changes that have taken place in society and that the law is having to catch up.”

While Obama said the high court “was not quite ready” to “indicate an equal-protection right across the board,” he personally believes same-sex marriage is protected under that clause. From The New Yorker:

Obama opposed marriage equality until May of 2012. He told me that he now believes the Constitution requires all states to allow same-sex marriage, an argument that his Administration has not yet made before the Supreme Court. “Ultimately, I think the Equal Protection Clause does guarantee same-sex marriage in all fifty states,” he said ……..

…… “The bulk of my nominees, twenty years ago or even ten years ago, would have been considered very much centrists, well within the mainstream of American jurisprudence, not particularly fire-breathing or ideologically driven,” Obama went on. “So the fact that now Democratic appointees and Republican appointees tend to vote differently on issues really has more to do with the shift in the Republican Party and in the nature of Republican-appointed jurists … Democrats haven’t moved from where they were.”

Oddly, neither Huff-n-Puff, nor the New Yorker noted the complete shift Zero himself has had on this subject in just three years!  In fact, the New Yorker doubles down on stupid by saying writing this …..

This is how Obama has attempted to define his Presidency—as an exemplar of common sense set against the extremism of the contemporary Republican Party. He has had the same mixed success in making this argument for his judges as he has had on most other issues during the past six years.

Dims haven’t moved?  Except when they did. 

Does anyone believe this crap anymore?  The left can’t pretend it’s moving further and further to the left.  Repubs have moved to the left considerably in recent years but, the movement can’t keep up with the left’s extreme movements.  Gay marriage isn’t the only example.  It wasn’t a decade ago the various worker unions opposed unfettered immigration and work visas.  Now, they’re all for it!  “Wealth redistribution” used to be dirty words.  Now, team Zero vocally aspire to the words!  LSM used to pretend they were unbiased, now they say everyone is biased.  (Which admits they are the propaganda arm of the leftist movement.)  Rape used to be rape, but, now, a female leftist TV host can say “it wasn’t rape-rape”.  And, she keeps her job!!!!!  A Christian athlete is blackballed from the NFL and no one says ‘boo’.  Leftists now brag about how they’re trying to deprive the US of energy necessary for our economic growth.  Heck, many leftists now advocate economic stagnation for the US!  And, now, the presidential idiot, who has changed his position on gay marriage 3 times in 3 years, while on the subject, tells the world it is the Repubs who have moved.

This Is How Backwards Leftardism Is ……. Christian Schools In UK Threatened By Govt Because Lack Of Imams In Classrooms!!!!

INDEPENDENT CHRISTIAN SCHOOL THREATENED BY GOVERNMENT OVER LACK OF IMAMS IN CLASSROOM

New rules intended to encourage “British Values” are being used to threaten a Christian school with closure because they have not invited an Imam to address the school assembly, reports a charity helping to defend them from the Department for Education.

The unnamed school, which is a small independent school in the home counties, has been warned that its rating under the Independent Schools Standards framework would be changed from “Good”, to merely “Adequate” because of its failure to meet the new requirements.

The rules, which were introduced after the Islamist ‘Trojan Horse’ scandal to prevent radicalisation of children in Britain’s schools appears to have suffered from the law of unintended consequences as they are now being used to interfere with traditional British schools instead.

The Department for Education (DfE) says promoting “acceptance and engagement” and “tolerance and respect of all faiths and cultures” in schools that teach the state religion now means going a lot further than school trips to Mosques and Temples, which has been the case in the past. The new rules mean the state is forcing faith schools, such as Anglican, Roman Catholic and Jewish schools to invite faith leaders such as Muslim Imams alien to their own traditions to lead lessons.

The Christian Institute has written a letter to the Education Secretary on behalf of one of the schools affected. The Daily Telegraph reports the comments of deputy director Simon Calvert: “Worryingly, evidence is already emerging of how the new regulations are requiring Ofsted inspection teams to behave in ways which do not respect the religious ethos of faith schools… the new requirements are infringing the rights of children, parents, teachers and schools to hold and practise their religious beliefs.

“The Christian Institute is currently working with an independent Christian School which has been marked down by Ofsted for not promoting other faiths. Astonishingly it was told it should invite representatives of other faith groups to lead assemblies and lessons, such as an Imam”.

A spokesperson for school inspectors Ofsted said the change in rules was essential to ensure Britain’s youth left school “well prepared” for “life in modern Britain”.

Amid these crackdowns on good Christian schools, concerns remain among the apparently radicalised Islamic schools which the rules were originally intended to combat. It was reported over the weekend that another six schools had been targeted in London in snap inspections, following “specific concerns” about the standards of education.

The schools, which included two run by the East London Mosque Trust were in Tower Hamlets, a borough run by directly elected mayor Lutfur Rahman, an area which has “categorically” denied having any such ‘Trojan-horse’ style plots to subvert education.

You see, the only way to have “religious tolerance” is to be intolerant of religious principles and freedoms.

Much of this exists, of course, simply out of hatred and intolerance of the Christian-Judeo ethos.  Leftards, cynics, and other people of low character like to pretend all religions are equal, and thereby, worthy of equal treatment. 

This, of course, isn’t true.  It is true that many people of no virtue have used whatever religion to purpose vile hatred, murder, and war and the like.  But, the teachings of the various religions are very different.  For instance, there’s nothing in the Bible I read which instructs me to “convert or kill” non-believers.  We’re not instructed to tax non-believers or disparage them of any civil rights we have.  Apparently, this isn’t true for all religions.  And, for that, I believe we shouldn’t be tolerant of all religions.  It’s insane to hold such a proposition.  Some religions, as we see today, are simply vile expressions of madmen and evil.  Whereas, other religions take nothing from non-believers.  Other religions don’t wantonly kill non-believers, they don’t tax them or deprive non-believers of anything, other than fellowship in said religion.
