More Climat-Gate..

Go see Bore Patch for a really really really good series of posts on "climate gate" and the "science" (or lack therof) therein.

He points out that there is NO warming that is not "adjusted".




And he shows that if you run the so called climate model, you GET A "HOCKEY STICK" no matter what data you input.

In other words. this whole thing is BULLSHIT.

But you already knew that.

Didn't you.

The backlash begins

The SWISS seems to be angry enough at the Muslim attempts to change the country to which they emigrated that they have banned the erection of new minarets.

This is serious. The SWISS have done this. If it had been the Germans, or the French I could understand....But the SWISS?

Here is a quote that should tell you why....and it is the same thing that OG and myself have said....."Backers said the growing Muslim population was straining the country "because Muslims don't just practice religion."".

Seems that some of the Swiss (57.5 to 42.5 percent)as Og and I do, the rest are with RobertaX.

ETA: Seems that the WOMEN of Switzerland were the larges supporters of the ammendment....

Climat-Gate links

Ivan Kenneally has commentary on the politics of GW "science...

Jonah Goldberg has a point about the double standard of scrutiny for these leaked emails and documents...

Some snark

Others take a look at the code that is used in the program that "models" the climate.

And Megan points out that we are basing a change in our entire lifestyle and it's costs on a fairly faulty model.

Here we have a report that another bunch of climate data (from NZ of all places?) is "adjusted" to fit the preexisting theory, not the theory adjusting to real data....One wonders about the veracity of all of the other data used in light of these revelations....IS there any climate data that is not "adjusted" to make it fit the theory of global warming ???

Here we have the point that it's not about the science, it's about the funding...No one is going to pay anyone to do a report that says "all is well, we have no issues, you can relax now" least not more than once.

And, Via Insty, we have a piece that points out that it is all about the money and control....Not about the science, not about the environment, and not about the climate.....

Look: World leaders are going to Copenhagen in a few days to discuss how they are going to strangle their respective economies in order to reduce carbon emissions. I have no issue with reducing carbon, nor making our use of energy more efficient. But the fact is that this is, and always has been, based upon poor science and half assed computer models that were written to make the outcome fit a predetermined outcome that fits the "hockey stick" graph/theory. It's not like there is any real proof that WE HUMANS are causing the planet to warm. In fact, we might not be. then agaibn, we might. But science like this proves nothing except that many people have gotten a lot of money for a very poor "research" product.

If the ice is all gonna melt, and the oceans are gonna rise, then why did Al the Gore just buy a bunch of oceanfront property in California??? Kinda like the "End of the World is Near" prophet buying long term investments...

Follow the links here, decide for yourself. Look at the evidence that is mounting. If this were business (Global Warming Research IS a busines, but I am talking about a private, stockholder owned business) then the FBI would be all over this, investigating for racketeering and fraudulent use of governmnet money....

Ask yourself why, if the MSM had the time and resources to fact check Sarah Palin's book with a bunch of people, can't they devote a portion of those resources to investigating this bogus climate "research"? Why are they whitewashing this? Who benefits?

And ask yourself why you hear very little from the MSM about it?

ETA: I have been getting HUGE traffic from Google search. For those of nyou that found me that way. Please, take the time to read some of my other posts.....Hope you like them, and if not, well, your comments might just make me take the time to re-think my opinion....I hope you enjoy my blog...

SO now...The M4 needs fixin'

Seems that the ARMY wants to fix the M4. Seems that the fixes are what everyone already says they need....A piston, and a barrel that is thicker, and a better trigger.

So maybe they are gonna buy the new Ruger??? Or maybe an SU-16?

Srsly. Why now? Not that these fixes haven't been needed. And no I am not bashing the M4. It is a good system, albeit with some issues. But what firearms platform doesn't have issues? (with the possible exception of the designs of JMB......)

One wonders though...Why now?

Who benefits from this? (other than the military men and women who may (and I say may) get a better, more reliable rifle.

Ya gotta admit....If he IS smokin' da spliff, it would explain a lot....


More on the failure of Global warming to be real

THIS points out that the earth hasn't warmed in over a decade.

At all.



The average temperature rise over the last decade:

0.00 degrees C.

None. Not even a teensy teensy tiny bit.

Makes one go HMMMMM.....

Good question:

Via Hoosierboy, I found THIS.

Ask yourself: How do YOU answer his question?

Lies, lies, lies.....

Via Devi's Kitchen

We have THIS.....

......have presented, as fact, data which privately they have acknowledged to be, at best, flawed.

Further, many members of The Club are editors of the reports submitted to the IPCC, and the emails show that they have deliberately cherry-picked those that agree with their position—and conspired to discredit or reject those that do not agree with their political position.

The Club has also conspired to suborne journals, and to oust editors of other journals who are perceived as being unsympathetic to their cause. And they have been successful.

The emails show that, whilst claiming that sceptics' papers are not peer-reviewed, The Club have actively and deliberately used blackmail and smears to prevent such peer-review or, when review is unavoidable, to have conspired to skew the review process to discredit their opponents.

All of these actions render the scientific reports produced by the IPCC extremely suspect. At best.

And they most certainly destroy the concept of the "scientific consensus".

None of these emails disprove anthropogenic climate change: but they do shatter the idea that there is no dissent and, crucially, they absolutely annihilate the idea that scientists are impartial and uncorrupt.

And these emails most certainly explode the proposition that we should reorder the world economy because of an impending climate disaster.

So we have "scientists" who have skewed data to present (and "prove") a foregone conclusion.....That Global Warming is actually happening, and happening at a rate which will cause widespread damage to our way of life very soon..... It is incontrovertable...

Except it isn't...and the "consensus" doesn't exist....

While the MSM hasn't run with this (yet) we can only hope that they will.

Spread the truth wherever you can.

SHOW people what the truth is....

Make this become mainstream.

In other words...

So is Al the Gore

A buffoon for believing the Global Warming bullshit, or a co-conspirator in the whole thing?

Either he is a tool (and a fool), or he is a liar.

It doesn't look good for him no matter which you believe.

Will this destroy the Church Of Glowbal Warmening?

Free speech for me, but not for thee...

Arianna Huffington feels that Free speech I.E. First ammendment rights, should not be equally applied.


I dislike her with a passion, but would fight to the death defending her right to be stupid in her comments. She has the right to show her stupidity as much as the next person. Free speech is, after all, free speech.

Muzzling your opponent is not a way to win. Win on your merits. Or fail. Either way, let us not even consider stepping on THAT particular slippery slope.

This comment shows how foolish the left wingers are.

The left must be getting scared.

Breaking news! Global Warming IS a scam..Climate gate!

File this under "I tole ya so"!

Seems that hacker broke into a "Global Climate Center" and hacked their database of emails and other documents.....Go to the link and read. I am not sure where the "Global Climate Center" is, other than the referenced "University of East Anglia Climate Research Center....A yahoo search shows one such named university in Norwich, UK, and Wikipedia has an entry for the University....The Register reports that a massive data breach has occured..... Apparently there is a huge file containing all sorts of interesting emails and such oput thereand available to those interested parties. Wonder what will come of this???

If (and I say "if" because I cannot confirm the report) this information and the supposed file is confirmed, then this should blow the lid off of the whole scam....If the MSM does it's job. (bets?)

Let us see how this pans out....

Cowardly congresscritter?

Sen. Evan Bayh seems to have an issue at his offices....For some reason, he is "experiencing extremely high call volume" and no one is able to answer the published phone number for any of his offices.

Seems that this problem has existed for about the last two weeks. Strange.

Or, it could be that the spineless asshole doesn't want to hear from any of his constituents before the Health Care vote.

Could be that the high call volume thing is true......For the past two all offices.....It could happen.

I am most likely wasting my time, but.....

I will try once more, then I will mosey down to the local office and make sure my opinion is heard.

Please, donate generously to my bail money fund.

Thanks in advance.

Think I'll have some Cheeze with that Whine

This is a perfect example of why these people have no clue. This person wants his health care back ....I understand that. He wants health care that he can afford. I understand that too. He has no job, so he can't afford the COBRA cost for the same coverage his employer subsidized. I understand THAT too. But the fact is that he has no clue as to what the health care really cost, not just his share, but with the amount that the employer had to kick in. This amount was pre-tax wages, and he fails to realize exactly what the cost for his health care was. Now all he can see is that he wants his cheap health care. He (like most liberals,..... actually, like most people, but conservatives don't expect it) wants something for nothing.

Guess what dude: your health care is gonna be expensive. If you think that your health care is expensive now, just wait until it is free. It's gonna cost you something like $350 a month as it is for the Obamacare plan. Since you have no job, what are you gonna use to pay for it? How are you gonna find the money for the plan that YOU HAVE NO CHOICE TO PAY FOR?

Your employer subsidized your health care plan when you were employed. Who is gonna do it now? Others are, that's who. Your employer will be taxed to make up the difference. Bet he doesn't hire too many people then. You think unemployment is bad now? Just wait.

All you seem to care is that you want what you had before.You had free or low cost health care because your employer paid for (subsidized) most of it. Now you want free or low cost health care and you want some other person or group of persons (like the "government") to subsidize your health care.

Who is gonna pay the bills?

More commentary

on the "Islam is not evil" discussion started by Og and Roberta X....

Best one is HERE. Pay particular attention to the quote by Jefferson.

Since my stance seems to be twisted by peoples replies, I will state things as I see them.

1. Islam, in it's fundamentalist form, is incompatible with the laws of the US.

2. You cannot be a practicing Muslim and be a good citizen, something must give.

3. "Tolerance" does not mean that you have the right to kill, maim, or in any way harm your daughters or other female family members because your religion says it is OK. Your personal beliefs must be subject to the laws of the US. Deal with it however you please, or go back home.

4. If you hate this country, leave. We like it with the laws that exist now. Want it to be like the Islamic shithole you left? Too bad. You wanna live under Islamic rule? Find another country that is ruled by the Koran. This one isn't. You left that country for a reason. Good or bad, you came here. Live under these laws. We revere another document, called the constitution. Live under that law, or be punished. Same goes for fundamentalist whatevers (Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, etc.)

5. You have no right to the US taxpaying public funding mosques, foot washing basins, prayer rooms, etc. Want them? Find a space and make your own. Pay for it out of your pocket, not the states.

6. For those that are ignorant, realize what the Koran tells it's followers regarding your status as an infidel. Learn what it says. Realize that while many Muslims just want to get along, they support the mosques that preach hate and preach such things as Dhimmitude. Understand that they support the preaching of hate, and murder, and death and Sharia. Understand that the ultimate goal of the Islamic world is domination and eventual conversion (or death) of all infidels. It is OK to lie, cheat, or whatever is necessary to further this goal, as long as the lies are to an infidel. It is OK to murder an infidel.

Don't hide the truth. Understand it.

7. I, in no way, wish to see any Muslims deported, corralled, hurt, injured, incarcerated, harassed, or in any way wish to see their civil rights trampled. But neither do I wish to allow them to either trample my rights, nor should they be given any extra rights just because they are a Muslim minority.

8. Freedom to practice your religion is a fundamental right, recognized and stated in the Constitution. But those rights to practice your religion have limits when it comes to others. Deal with the limits or find another country.

Rant off

Please resume your normal day. Thank you for reading.

ETA: for those Muslims reading this, HERE are a few hints on how to get along.

I am so

Did Catholics in WWII fighting for the US only fight non-Catholics in Germany?

Or Protestants the same?

Or did they fight for their country (and countrymen) and against the soldiers of the other country?

IF the latter, the n why do we give Major Hasan a pass for not wanting to fight against other Muslims? He is a citizen, right? and a volunteer in the US army, right?

So why does the MSM make excuses for him?


Near miss.

No warning.

Makes ya wonder....



In Union Square [Manhattan] An earnest lass ran up to me and said "Would you like to feed starving children?" I said "To what?"

HT: NewPaltzJournal via Tam


It goes something like this:....

There once was a man walking through the woods in the winter.
During his walk, he chanced upon a snake frozen in the snow.

Being a kind soul, he picked up the frozen snake along with the snow and ice that encased it, and carried said snake back to the cabin, where he warmed the snake, freed it from the snow and ice, and held it against his body, sharing warmth with the snake that it might thaw and live again.

After a time, the snake stirred, raised it's head, and promptly bit the man, injecting venom.

"I am dead!", cried the man. "You have killed me with your bite!"

"How could you do this? I brought you into my house, warmed you, and nurtured you back to life!"

The snake replied, as the man lay dying...."You knew what I was when you picked me up."

Compare this to Ft. Hood and other terrorist actions in our country.

Draw your own conclusions.

For all the effort involved in the Kelo decision (for those that don't know, this was the theft of a private residence using Eminent Domain, but the property ended up in the hands of a corporation), the Pfizer corporation abandoned the plan to build it's new R&D plant, leaving New London, Conn holding the bag. And after all that the city did for the corporation, in the hope that they would stay and bring new jobs with them.

And, Of course, Susan Kelo is forever without her family's home.

Yeah, she got paid for it under Eminent Domain, but she lost the house her parents left to her, and the site is now just a field, with all the houses torn down.

For nothing. No new R&D plant, no development. Nothing.


Happy Birthday Marines!

Og and RobertaX are having a (sorta) discussion (or argument) regarding Islam. Her side starts HERE, his is HERE.

While I enjoy talking with them both, and can see both sides, I must say that Roberta is being soft hearted and Pollyanna-Ish in her viewpoint.

Og has the right of it. Read back a few of his posts for some history. Same with Roberta....

While there are many nice, decent, law abiding citizens who are of the Muslim faith, the fact remains that the religion does have the Koran as it's word. These are (supposedly) the words of Muhammad. And they must be followed. Or you aren't a good Muslim. Period. If you haven't read the Koran (I have), it is full of hate for infidels, and it's rules for society make women no better than cattle. My thanks to CAIR for providing me with the book that opened my eyes to Islam. If you haven't read it, then you should, especially before making such judgements.

Sadly, Islam does not allow it's followers to pick and choose. It is not an ala-carte sort of religion. You cannot be a devout Muslim and be a good citizen of the US. Period. Nor can you be a devout muslim and be a member of the US military. The society mandated by Islam is at odds with the society of the US.

(You cannot be a practicing Catholic and work at an abortion clinic, either, and for the same reasons.)

While not all Muslims are terrorists, the fact remains that most terrorists are Muslims.
And the major Muslim organizations do nothing to purge the radicals from their religion. They are supported by someone.....

Not all spree shooters are Muslims. But not all spree shooters cry "Allah Akbar!" before shooting people. Christians, Muslims, Jews, etc have been murderers in this country. But few others do the deed in the name of their god or their faith. And they are condemned by their church immediately.

Sadly, not so with Islam.
Interesting read at Ferfal's blog.....

It could happen here. In fact, as he pints out, it IS happening here.

We elected the politician he talked about (more than one, actually) and his experiences in Argentina demonstrate that the US is following a similar path.

Will we end up in the same place? Who knows? But we are firmly on the same path, and we are now electing the same types of leaders that the Argentines already have.

Some places in large cities in the US already have the conditions of which he speaks.

Why elections matter....

It isn't always about what judges they will allow a president to appoint...

Here is another reason to get out the vote, and to campaign for the politician you want, (or at least against the one you don't).

Sometimes it matters more than you realize.

Today is one of those days.

even in Canada, the 2nd is winning

Canada MP s vote to repeal the long gun registry. (like it had been working anyway)....

It isn't a done deal, but it is a start.

If the semi socialist countries are failing in their control, then why do we have a socialist portion of government that keeps trying to assert even more control? It would seem that "our" supposed "Intellectuals"(spit) can't even learn from their brethren about what works and what doesn't.

But they will keep trying, with YOUR money of course. It is the way of the socialist.


Pravda has the right of it. Read this article (it's long and windy, but indeed, it is correct) about the EU, and the fact that it is moving farther and farther towards the state that was behind the Iron Curtain. It is, of course, Pravda, with all that that implies, but being Pravda does not make the message any less correct.....

Seems that the socialists have won, they just had to wait for the effects to occur. All that posturing, all the military hardware they had in order to bring socialism to the masses of Europe, and yet, the Europeans have gone and brought their own socialism to themselves. Either this is a really, really well crafted long, long, long, range plan coming to fruition, or they were just lucky...

Either way, the socialists seem to have won. And even Pravda notices.

And we, as Americans, have elected a socialist "Great Leader" who wants to emulate the EU in its drive towards a more socialist state.

He is bankrupting the country, socializing our industries, and controlling our banks.

What is next? There is already an attempt at the curtailing of free speech........

Hey, this Kool-Aid tastes bad!!!!!

Seems that those who jumped on the Obama Bandwagon are unhappy. Not too many people like him nearly as much as they thought they would after they voted for him.

Many of those who drank the Kool Aid seem to have become disenchanted with the flavor of the drink, now that they have had a chance to reflect on the taste for a while......It seems to be leaving a bad taste in even his most ardent supporters mouths.


Did you really think that Mr.Obama, the poster child for DNC Liberalism, was going to be able to make everyone happy at the same time? Srsly folks, who among us really thought that he would? Seems that reality has smacked the nice Obama in the face, and he is realizing that doing the job is harder than campaigning for it....

Seems that they can't even sell Obama memorabilia in D.C. anymore....

The cracks continue to widen...... This statement is priceless....(HT: the Blogfather)

What Copenhagen is really all about:

Socialism. Plain and simple. Evening out all of the world's population in order that there is an even amount of misery. Everyone (except,of course the self appointed ruling class) will share in the lack of things. This is a tax upon the developed countries of the world, for the (supposed) benefit of the less developed countries. (go HERE for more info) THIS IS ABOUT CONTROL.

(It might well be that the Global Conspiracy Theorists have been right all along?) I know that this sounds like I am a crackpot (and maybe I am), but the actual reality is WORSE! Take the time to read the links, then decide.....IF you don't get angry, then you aren't paying attention. Read what they admit they want to do.

Let us not forget the fact that the US, much of Europe, and many other countries have both taken (and paid for) and used the resources from those poorer countries that Copenhagen wishes to help by damaging those more successful countries, but that we have spent billions of dollars trying to help those same poor countries elevate their standard of living, to no avail.

Were it not for the World Health Organization, those same poorer countries would have fewer people in them (due to disease) and were it not for the food that was given to those countries by the US and Europe in aid, many of their citizens would have died from starvation. Now we have to tax the "richer" countries in order to make things "fairer". And much like contributions to the UN, most of the value given to the organizations will be used internally, for the benefit of the organization, and little actually flowing to the intended recipients.

It's not like they didn't have the chance to drag themselves out of the mud with all the help that was given....What happened was that the best and the boldest left their third world shitholes for better opportunities and the socialist weenies want to give the rest of them that stayed behind the same benefits without the effort.

Expect to pay big carbon taxes soon so that the poorer countries can reap big rewards for their failure to become something (it probably won't help, but they will try, and at our expense.)

(Of course, my first thought about shooting anyone (including government officials) who wants to tax this country for it's success is probably over the top, so we'll have to come up with a better, more nuanced version idea).

If this treaty is passed, I see big discussion fodder in the next election cycle, and big changes, even bigger that what might occur due to health care. The thought that any official of this government would undermine the sovereignty of this nation is utterly abhorrent to me. The thought that they think that they can get away with is is even more shocking. The thing is, we, the people, by voting such folk into power, HAVE GIVEN THEM THE RIGHT TO TRY!

Me, I am a neanderthal, and would advocate for torches and lampposts and rope and such (some assembly required) for those that would ratify such actions against the interests of the US and it's citizens.
