If Any President Was Complicit in Causing Extreme Weather, It Was Obama!

The ‘Washington Post’ wrote: “When it comes to extreme weather, Trump is complicit.” But if anyone is guilty of climate crimes, it’s Obama.

“When it comes to extreme weather, Trump is complicit.”  —The Washington Post, counterfactually accusing President Trump of causing hurricanes and extreme weather, on September 11, 2018
“For the last hundred years, the ocean has risen 20 cm—but . . . for the last 300 years, the ocean has also risen 20 cm per 100 years.  So there is no unusual rise in sea level. . . .  You don’t have to even be a scientist to look at these figures and you understand what it says. . . .”  —Nobel Prize-winning scientist Ivar Giaever, in his half-hour speech “Nobel Laureate Smashes the Global Warming Hoax” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_5az5OIX2k)
Fact: If Emissions Are to Blame for Causing Hurricanes, Any Complicity Is Obama’s
Since President Trump took office, US emissions have actually gone down.  Therefore, if emissions do indeed cause global warming which leads to the creation of hurricanes, those emissions were released prior to President Trump’s tenure in office.  Breitbart News (https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/04/07/germanys-die-welt-proclaims-trump-successful-climate-protector-world/) reports that, “[i]n a bizarre irony, the German daily newspaper Die Welt has proclaimed US President Donald Trump ‘the most successful climate protector in the world’ after a new global climate report revealed that US carbon dioxide emissions dropped dramatically during Trump’s first year in office.”  According to CFACT(http://www.cfact.org/2018/06/26/politifact-disgraces-itself-on-u-s-emissions-ruling/), “a comprehensive study [is] issued every year by the energy company BP, called the Statistical Review of World Energy.  It uses a different methodology [than EPA] but produced similar findings as the EPA data—a 0.5 percent decline in emissions for the United States in 2017 (Trump’s first year) over 2016 (Obama’s last).”
The Consequences of Obama’s Driving Out of US Businesses to Unregulated Countries
President Obama, on the other hand, by overregulating American businesses and raising their taxes, drove many businesses from US shores to other countries with lower tax and regulatory burdens.  An ironic side-effect of Obama’s having chased so much production abroad is the fact that many such businesses immediately started to pollute the atmosphere at much higher levels, due to the lack of clean air standards in those countries.  China is a major polluter!  Every time a US business that emits CO2 moves to China, it often becomes a much dirtier enterprise.
Trump’s Attraction of So Many Businesses to America Means Cleaner Air Globally
With the Trump tax cuts, many businesses have begun moving production jobs to America (https://www.gobankingrates.com/making-money/business/companies-reinvested-america-following-trumps-election/), since it will again be profitable to do business.  It is a good thing, too, since, according to RT (https://www.rt.com/usa/china-air-pollution-export-926/), “[r]ising emissions produced in China are a key reason global emissions of air pollutants have remained at a high level . . . even as emissions produced in the United States, Europe, and Japan have decreased. . . .  Outsourcing production to China does not always relieve consumers in the United States—or, for that matter, many countries in the Northern Hemisphere—from the environmental impacts of air pollution.”  Chinese pollution, it would seem, travels across the Pacific to the West Coast of the US in six days, adding to the smog and pollution there.  This is truly ironic, since many businesses have been regulated right out of business in California, only to move to China, where, free of all constraints, they pollute more, to the even greater detriment of the West Coast than before.  Yet, as bad as all the Chinese pollution is for people living on the West Coast, whether or not it actually acts as a warming agent on the global environment is highly doubtful.
Dr. William Happer on Global Warming
Dr. William Happer, a top climate scientist, has famously said (http://www.climatedepot.com/2017/01/13/trump-meets-with-princeton-scientist-who-called-global-warming-fears-pure-belief-disguised-as-science/), “The incredible list of supposed horrors that increasing CO2 will bring the world is pure belief disguised as science.”  Happer has earned the right to make such pronouncements, since he is one of the leading experts in climate science and is the Cyrus Fogg Bracket Professor of Physics at Princeton University.  Dr. Happer has published over 200 peer-reviewed papers in science journals and has also served as Director of Energy Research at the Department of Energy (DOE) from 1990 to 1993, where he supervised the DOE’s work with regard to climate change.  Of CO2, Happer has stated that “CO2 is not a ureal pollutant and it is not a poison and we should not corrupt the English language by depriving ‘pollutant’ and ‘poison’ of their original meaning. . . .  For many decades, the citizens of the USA and of much of the world have been flooded with the message that CO2 is ‘carbon pollution.’  We are supposed to trust our government and selfless [nongovernmental organizations] for instructions on how to save the planet.  Much of the message is false, but its purveyors control key positions in the media, in the government, in scientific societies, in charitable foundations, etc.  This makes it difficult to get out the truth that climate science is far from ‘settled.’”
John Coleman
John Coleman (1934-2018), founder of the Weather Channel, wrote the following with respect to CO2 warming (https://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/10/23/weather-channel-founder-john-coleman-there-is-no-significant-man-made-global-warming-at-this-time/): “There is no significant man-made global warming at this time. . . .  Efforts to prove the theory that carbon dioxide is a significant ‘greenhouse’ gas and pollutant causing significant warming or weather effects have failed.  There has been no warming in over 18 years.  [And] 9,000 other Ph.D. scientists all agree with my opening two sentences.  Yet at your October 23 Hammer Forum on Climate Change you have scheduled as your only speakers two people who continue to present . . . failed science. . . .  The polar ice is increasing, not melting away.  Polar Bears are increasing in number. . . .  There is not an uptick in the number or strength of storms (in fact storms are diminishing). . . .  It has become a political and environmental agenda item, but the science [supporting this political agenda] is not valid. . . .”
The Good News for Obama
The good news for Barack Obama is this: Even though he raised emissions and increased worldwide pollution through his feckless policies, it would appear that at least he did not cause any hurricanes, since the emissions caused are likely not responsible for heating the oceans.  Obama’s complicity, it turns out, is limited.  And so it goes. . . .

Leftist Scientists Now Looking to Ban ‘Bigoted’ Names of Bugs… No Really

The woke left has now come for our “bigoted” bugs, folks. That’s right, our bugs are racists, bigots, and sexists, don’t you know?

The woke left has now come for our “bigoted” bugs, folks. That’s right, our bugs are racists, bigots, and sexists, don’t you know?

Leftist entomologists are now working to eliminate an untold number of scientific names that have been assigned to various insects because the names are now deemed “problematic.”

According to Breitbart News, the “slavemaker ant,” “rape bug,” the “oriental rat flea,” and “large faggot worm,” are just a few of the insects that are featured on the list.

Amusingly, the “large faggot worm” is named not because he likes worms of the same sex, but because he decorates his cocoon with bits of twigs (and in the old days, a twig was called a faggot).

Breitbart News adds:

The “Immigrant Acacia Weevil,” a pest bug that is sometimes a target of bug exterminators, was also included on the list. The scientists behind the list note that they are “not really comfortable exterminating something with the word ‘immigrant’ in the name.”

“There is no room for racism in science,” University of Arizona researcher Earyn McGee said during an interview with the College Fix.

“If you must acknowledge them, you can say something like ‘X person discovered X thing however it is important to note they also did this bigoted thing and that type of behavior is unacceptable for scientists,’” McGee said.

This McGee seems like a bit of a dunce, huh?

McGee went on to attack scientists of the past because they were obviously evil, white, racists.

“They should ask themselves how did those people get into a position to make those contributions in the first place. Whose contributions have been historically ignored to allow this to happen? What oppressive structures allow this?” she said.

Of course.

Rare, Powerful Idaho Earthquake Raises Alarms About ‘Big One’ as Yellowstone ‘Pulses’

If it’s not one thing, it’s another.

Published

on

As if we don’t already have enough to worry about, now there are whispers of a possible earthquake-related cataclysm on the horizon.

Nearly the entirety of the world is in the midst of a lockdown the likes of which we’ve never seen in our modern era.  Sure, there was the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, but few of us alive today remember much about that, and we are living in an entirely different world than that of a century ago.

In the USA alone, there is the possibility of 100,000 deaths – nearly twice as many American casualties as we suffered during the two decades of the Vietnam War.

Now, in the middle of all of this, we have some unusual seismic activity out west to worry about.

A preliminary magnitude 6.5 earthquake rattled Idaho on Tuesday with shaking felt across the region, including Washington state, Utah, Nevada and Canada.

Tuesday’s quake was the strongest in the state since the 1983 Borah Peak earthquake and reportedly killed two people. This earthquake was so strong that the eruptions of Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park were noticeably longer.

It is that last bit about Yellowstone that has some folks worried.

An area the size of Chicago in Yellowstone National Park has been inflating and deflating by several inches over the past decade

The Norris Geyser Basin, the oldest, hottest and most dynamic thermal area in the park, was observed to rise 5.9 inches each year from 2013 to 2015 – an unusual event that left researchers baffled.

Now, using satellite radar and GPS data, experts have determined the ground deformation was caused by magma intrusions trapped below the basin’s surface.

As magma made its way to the surface, the pressure pushed rocks above it up and created an erratic pulsating effect, according to National Geographic.

The Yellowstone Caldera has been fodder for conspiracy theorists and doomsday prophets for years, with many believing that the entire region could one day erupt violently, in what would trigger a mass extinction event here on planet earth.

Soros Wants Zuckerberg Removed from Facebook for ‘Helping’ Trump Reelection Efforts

Soros is apparently ignoring the years of conservative censorship that the platform has engaged in.

Published

on

There are some folks who are just far too removed from reality to make sense of what they are saying.  Liberal billionaire George Soros may very well fit into that category.

Soros has an immense amount of wealth, that’s for certain.  He’s not like you or I in that regard.  Instead, the Hungarian leftist lives in the ivory towers of the world, as part of the infamous 1%.

This distance between Soros and the rest of humanity was on full display this week.

The Daily Mail reports that leftist billionaire George Soros has called for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg to be removed from their positions at the company as he believes they are “helping Trump get re-elected” by refusing to fact check political ads.

In a letter to the Financial Times, Soros accused Zuckerberg and Sandberg of having a “mutual assistance agreement” with Trump that would “help him get re-elected.” Soros made similars claims in an op-ed published in the New York Times earlir this month titled “George Soros: Mark Zuckerberg Should Not Be in Control of Facebook.” Soros discussed the social media giant Facebook and stated that he doesn’t believe the company’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg — who controls 53 percent of voting shares of Facebook — should be in charge of the platform.

What’s missing from Soros’ comment is context, however.

Facebook has been working diligently over the course of the last several years to subvert conservative viewpoints, both by employing algorithmic adjudicators and human censors alike.  There is no conspiracy to have Trump reelected, not by a long shot, but Soros is far too removed from the regular world to understand this.

Parody Video of Pelosi Tearing SOTU Speech Stays Online Despite Democratic Protests

Facebook doesn’t care about your feelings, and that has irked the Democrats to no end.

Published

on

Tuesday night’s State of The Union address was one for the history books, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attempting to steal the spotlight from President Trump at the event’s conclusion.

With the rip heard ’round the world, Pelosi fomented her place in the pantheon of the progressive “resistance”, tearing a gifted copy of the President’s address in half while the rest of the chamber politely applauded the achievements outlined by Trump in the speech.  The moment immediately went viral, with predictably divided opinions as to how the gesture fits into the national narrative.

Many saw the act as a show of disrespect for those whom the President lauded during the State of The Union address itself, including a member of the fabled Tuskegee Airmen.

Now, an edited video that made it appear as though the ripping stunt was in direct relation to the celebration of the brave service member is making the rounds online, and the left is helpless to stop its spread.

Within hours, the speaker’s office was demanding both social media companies remove the video, arguing it was unfair to Pelosi, who actually stood and applauded the airman during the speech.

Both Facebook and Twitter decided against removing the Trump video, although the companies cited different reasons for their decisions.

The dispute became public Friday when Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill, posted a link to a criticism of the video Friday afternoon, writing “The latest fake video of Speaker Pelosi is deliberately designed to mislead and lie to the American people, and every day that these platforms refuse to take it down is another reminder that they care more about their shareholders’ interests than the public’s interests.”

The argument turned fierce in a hurry.

Andy Stone, a Facebook spokesman, replied to Hammill on Twitter: “Sorry, are you suggesting the President didn’t make those remarks and the Speaker didn’t rip the speech?”

Hammill fired back: “What planet are you living on? This is deceptively altered. Take it down.”

Critics of Facebook have repeatedly chastised the platform for allowing misleading content, which often remains on the site for the purpose of financially capitalizing from the controversy that it creates.

Teen Shocks NASA by Finding New Planet 3 Days Into Internship

A New York high school student shocked the scientific establishment by identifying a new planet only three days into his internship.

Published

A New York high school student shocked the scientific establishment by identifying a never before seen planet only three days into his internship.

Wolf Cukier, 17, was interning at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland last year when he uncovered what became known as TOI 1338 b — a planet orbiting two stars instead of one, Yahoo News reports.

The teen caught the telltale signs of a planet while reviewing data captured by the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), NASA said.

“I was looking through the data for everything the volunteers had flagged as an eclipsing binary, a system where two stars circle around each other and from our view eclipse each other every orbit,” Cukier said. “About three days into my internship, I saw a signal from a system called TOI 1338.”

“At first, I thought it was a stellar eclipse, but the timing was wrong. It turned out to be a planet,” he added.

The teen chalked up some scientific firsts with his identification:

TOI 1338 b is the first circumbinary planet discovered by TESS, according to NASA. The planet is around 6.9 times larger than Earth — nearly the size of Saturn — and lies in a system 1,300 light-years away in the constellation of Pictor.

The world orbits the two stars every 95 days, the agency said. One star is about 10 percent bigger than our sun, while the other is a cooler and dimmer M dwarf that is only a third of our sun’s mass.

Cukier likened his discovery to the Star Wars planet, Tatooine.

“I discovered a planet, which has two stars that orbit around. So, if you think to Luke’s homeworld, Tatooine, from Star Wars, it’s like that. Every sunset, there’s going to be two stars setting,” Cukier said.

The high schooler joked that the rest of his internship didn’t live up to its first 72 hours.

“Funny thing is, I didn’t find anything else for the rest of the internship, even though I found one on like day three,” he said.
