Gonna be a tough winter for most of the country

Dana Mathewson

Over the years we've been led to believe the Farmers' Almanac. Well, that venerable publication tells us the upcoming winter will be a snorter.

Enjoy the last days of summer, because a wild ride apparently is in store this winter.

The Farmers’ Almanac is predicting that "bitterly cold winter conditions" will be in place from areas east of the Rockies all the way to the Appalachians, with the coldest outbreak of the season arriving during the final week of January and lasting through the beginning of February.

"Our extended forecast is calling for yet another freezing, frigid, and frosty winter for two-thirds of the country,” editor Peter Geiger said in a statement on the company's website.

The Farmer's Almanac said that this upcoming winter will be "filled with so many ups and downs on the thermometer, it may remind you of a 'Polar Coaster.'"

Included in this year's outlook is the prediction of free-falling, frigid temperatures from the northern Plains into the Great Lakes. The big cities in the Northeast are may also experience colder-than-normal temperatures for much of the upcoming winter.

"Only the western third of the country will see near-normal winter temperatures, which means fewer shivers for them," the publication notes.

Besides the chilly temperatures, the eastern third of the country is expected to see above-normal winter precipitation.

It's Global Warming fer sherr! Put on a sweater and read the rest, here: https://www.foxnews.com/us/farmers-almanac-winter-snow-cold-frigid-temperatures

Gaia's Callous Remover

Timothy Birdnow

Here is an interesting below-the-radar story; a giant piece of pumice the size of Manhattan is floating in the Ocean near Queensland, Australia.

A raft of rock, the size of 20,000 football fields is floating towards Queensland. The pumice was created when an underwater volcano erupted off Tonga. Scientists say it'll bring millions of new coral to the Great Barrier Reef.

First, that shows how the Earth can heal itself from periodic problems like reef loss. Second, it suggests someone with a major callous is having a heckuva good day!

Pumice, by the way, has a lot of air in bubbles and so floats in water.

More on the Amazon Fires

Timothy Birdnow

Another point to ponder about the Amazon fires; Brazil and the Amazon aren't the only places on fire - there are fires in Argentina, Bolivia, and Paraguay right now as well. In other words, it is fire season.

And here is a Live Science article about the fires - and how they won't affect atmospheric oxygen levels. From the article:

The oft-repeated claim that the Amazon rainforest produces 20% of our planet's oxygen is based on a misunderstanding. In fact nearly all of Earth's breathable oxygen originated in the oceans, and there is enough of it to last for millions of years. There are many reasons to be appalled by this year's Amazon fires, but depleting Earth's oxygen supply is not one of them.

Nearly all free oxygen in the air is produced by plants through photosynthesis. About one-third of land photosynthesis occurs in tropical forests, the largest of which is located in the Amazon Basin.

But virtually all of the oxygen produced by photosynthesis each year is consumed by living organisms and fires. Trees constantly shed dead leaves, twigs, roots and other litter, which feeds a rich ecosystem of organisms, mostly insects and microbes. The microbes consume oxygen in that process.

Forest plants produce lots of oxygen, and forest microbes consume a lot of oxygen. As a result, net production of oxygen by forests — and indeed, all land plants — is very close to zero.


Reader Bill H. had a great comment:

When we first began having to empty our water bottles in airports, CBS News ran a film clip of an airplane blowing up to demonstrate what the new terrorist weapon (liquid explosive) could do. We now know, of course, that there was never any liquid explosive, but I knew at the time that the film clip was made in Ethiopia some 12 years earlier when terrorists blew up a captured airliner.
More recently, all networks ran a film clip an "air strike" on a refugee camp in Syria which it labelled a "war crime." It clearly had not involved any bombs, but was the results of camp fires spreading during a wind storm.
NBC last night ran film clips of the Brazilian "aftermath of the rain forest burning."None of the trees were more than about 15' tall and none were more than 8" in diameter. Some of the trees may have been three years old, but none were older than that. Most of the aerial shots were not even forests at all, but were grassland.

Interesting how the media keeps running video clips which demonstrate visually that the story it is telling is false.

The Importance of Judges: Trump Appointee Finds in Favor of Christian

Timothy Birdnow

Love Trump or hate him, you cannot deny the importance of his victory in terms of the courts.

Here is a prime example; a Trump appointed judge just ruled in favor of a Christian photographer, who was sued for turning down a job filming a gay wedding.

From the article:

In Telescope Media Group v. Lucero, decided Aug. 23, a three-judge panel of the appeals court found, on appeal from the U.S. District Court in Minneapolis, that "even antidiscrimination laws, as critically important as they are, must yield to the Constitution.”

To force Carl and Angel Larsen, a married couple with eight children, to film a ceremony that goes against their consciencewould be to unconstitutionally force speech upon them, according to the majority opinion written by Judge David Stras, an appointee of President Donald Trump, and concurred in by Judge Bobbie E. Shepherd, an appointee of former President George W. Bush.

Attorneys for Minnesota argued that the Minnesota Human Rights Act, violations of which may be punished with fines or imprisonment, required not only that the Larsens produce both "opposite-sex- and same-sex-wedding videos, or none at all,” but that such videos must place both kinds of weddings "in an equally ‘positive’ light.”

According to Minnesota, failing to do so constitutes unlawful discrimination against prospective customers based on their sexual orientation, Stras wrote.

The Larsens view marriage as a "sacrificial covenant between one man and one woman,” Stras wrote for the court. The couple works with all people, "regardless of their race, sexual orientation, sex, religious beliefs, or any other classification,” but will not accept requests for services that contradict their religious beliefs.

This includes any services that, in their view, "contradict biblical truth; promote sexual immorality; support the destruction of unborn children; promote racism or racial division; incite violence; degrade women; or promote any conception of marriage other than as a lifelong institution between one man and one woman.”

Target's Bathroom Policy Leads to More Trouble

Bev Ellen forwards this:

Target's policy gave man access to six young girls.

It happened again. Target's dangerous policy of allowing men to enter women's dressing rooms has resulted in possible sexual crimes against female customers – both women and underage girls.

In May, Sean Anderson was allegedly arrested for taking pictures of undressed females after drilling holes in women's dressing rooms in several Target stores in Pennsylvania.

After his arrest, police searched through Anderson's phone and found 56 images of women, 12 of whom were without tops and one who was completely unclothed. They also found six images of young girls who were either partially or totally undressed, investigators said.

Here's the rub. Anderson allegedly drilled the holes on a prior visit. Target knew the holes were in the dressing rooms and knew that these holes allowed for "Peeping Toms" to spy on women undressing. Rather than protecting female customers by prohibiting men from the area, Target merely plugged the holes and continued to let men enter without restriction.

With something as simple as a ballpoint pen, Anderson returned and pushed the plugs out of the holes and used his phone’s camera to continue his disgusting crime of violating the privacy of Target's female customers over and over again.

Target had the ability to completely prevent this type of crime, yet it didn't. Target still has the ability to prevent this type of crime 100% of the time, yet it won't.

The bottom line is this: People who shop at Target and use its restrooms or dressing rooms are at risk for sexual exploitation.

There are still people you know who are unfamiliar with Target's dangerous policy. Will you help spread the warning and let your family and friends know about the Target boycott?

Forward this information to friends and family. Invite them to sign the boycott pledge at www.afa.net/ target.

Call Target headquarters at 612-304-6073 and personally let them know you are boycotting its stores.

Voice your concerns on Target's Facebook page.

Sincerely,

Tim Wildmon, President

Fire in Brazilian Amazon Basin Below Fifteen Year Average

Timothy Birdnow

Much digital ink has been spilled over the forest fires in the Amazon basin, but is it really something unusual? Not according to NASA, which says the fire season is actually a bit below average for this time of year according to the fifteen year average. It is just that there were an unusually small number of fires in the last few years, thus building up fuel. This year is a normal correction to the curve.

This is an attack on President Bolsanaro, who is the South American version of Donald Trump. He has theorized the Left may actually be setting some of these fires to drive international intervention and force him out. Honestly, I wouldn't put it past these people.

More on American Slavery

Timothy Birdnow

More on the discussion on slavery in America.

https://thefederalist.com/2019/08/23/slavery-america-not-begin-1619-things-nyts-project-gets-wrong/?fbclid=IwAR1X03O8dKcOOzD6sQteL19sS8vdRmFaYcEAf08NJuU4irsTgXl7C9-MJjc#.XWArKC3Tb30.facebook

I wrote about slavery in America here with details not mentioned in the Federalist article. The Federalist gives details I hadn't mentioned, too.

For instance:

Those early slaves in 1619 that The New York Times focuses on arrived on the San Juan Bautista. If that name doesn’t sound English, that’s because it isn’t. It was a Portuguese ship en route to Spanish Mexico. Off the coast of Mexico, it was attacked and captured by English pirates masquerading as Dutch. They sold their enslaved human cargo at Jamestown.
Slavery is no more ‘native’ to the American experience than, well, anything.

From its earliest moments in the Spanish colony of 1526, Puerto Rico in 1513, or even Jamestown in 1619, the truth is that America was a footnote to a larger world of slavery. We did not invent this evil. We enthusiastically embraced it.

But when we explain the role played by slavery, we have to recognize that slavery is no more "native” to the American experience than, well, anything. We stole the first slaves from Portugal. Slavery struggled to "take off” in much of the South because managing a plantation is extremely technical and complicated, and many Americans were not good at it. It was an influx of experienced human traffickers, slave-torturers, and large-scale agribusiness experts from Haiti and other Caribbean colonies in the 1700s that gave much of the Deep South enough "expertise” in the abuse of humanity to develop a thriving slave economy.

[...]

This story of slavery as something somehow "foreign” to many Americans will read as a bit much to many enthusiasts of the 1619 Project. If Americans were so unhappy with slavery, why didn’t they abolish it?

My answer is simple: we did. At the risk of historical absurdity, it must be noted that when Georgia was founded in 1732, slavery was banned, making it the first place in the Western hemisphere to ban slavery. But alas, the appeal of plantation wealth was too great, and by 1752 the King George II (the father of the George we rebelled against) had taken over Georgia as a royal colony, and instituted slavery.
In 1780, still amidst the guns of war, Massachusetts’ constitution rendered enslavement legally unenforceable, and the judiciary soon abolished it.

Thus, in 1775, there was no free soil anywhere in the Western hemisphere. Slavery was a universal law. While I cannot say for certain, it is possible there was no free soil in the entire world—that is, no society that categorically forbade all slavery.

But then something changed. Revolutionary agitation led to war in 1776, and by 1777, Vermont’s de facto secession from New York and New Hampshire created the first modern polity in the western hemisphere to forbid the keeping of slaves. In 1777, war with Britain was barely begun.

And let us not forget that the Native Americans of whom liberals are so enamoured were slaveholders long before the coming of the white man. In fact, many fought on the side of the Confederacy during the Civil War to protect their right to own slaves.

Slavery is not some uniquely American sin; it is ubiquitous to the human species. It should be pointed out that slavery was a viable institution because there was no other way of doing the work that needed doing. Industrialism - the thing absolutely hated by so many modern Progressives - was as much responsible for ending slavery as anything; we could use machines to do the dirty, unpleasant tasks performed by slaves. That is why Environementalists are so monstrously wrong; they seek a return to the old slave days. They don't realize that is what will happen but something has to do the work and without machinery to do it, that something will be people. "Paradise" was always on the backs of the poor and the slave. The reality is we live in the true paradise now.

Put THAT in your cannibus pipe and smoke it, you hippies!

Ashes to Ashes

Timothy Birdnow

I saw a very sad thing on Sunday morning. I was driving home from the Ozark Hilton in the rain. There was quite a bit of spray from all of the traffic, and everyone was driving too fast for the road conditions. (There were a lot of full sized pickups on the road; they tend to rot  the driver's brains.)

Traffic all moved over to the right lane, and I saw why; there was terrible accident. Police were on the scene, but clearly someone had died; a car was flipped completely over, and it looked as though Bigfoot had just done a car-crushing exhibition; the thing was only about three feet high at this point. Anyone inside was crushed to death.

An ambulance was coming from the north but was in no particular hurry - the meatwagon. Speed was no longer essential.

Just think; someone went to church, or was out for breakfast on a Sunday morning, and they are never going home again. Never. Their loved ones became worried when they didn't show up, and then they receive the dreaded call "this is Officer Jones from the St. Francois Sheriff's Department with bad news...".  They had family, friends, they touched the lives of others. Now they are gone and nobody will ever see them. I pray that there was just one driver in that vehicle. Sundays are often family days.

And nobody learned a blessed thing from it. Cars sped up as soon as they were past the constriction, moving well beyond the speed limit. I was driving faster than I liked because of the pressure of traffic, and cars were passing me like I was an old lady. People are STUPID! The roads were slick and visibility was poor.

At any rate, we should all say a prayer or two for the soul of the deceased, and for their families.

Why Red-Flag Laws Are Worse Than You Think

Dana Mathewson

There is a lot of noise -- way too much of it positive -- being made about so-called "Red-Flag" Laws these days. Too many people, in possession of too few facts, are in favor of these, as they seem to think they will cut down on mass shootings. They won't.

This is a great article and I wish I could post the whole thing. I'm going to post the first and last paragraphs and hope you will follow the link to the entire article.
As red-flag laws again take center stage in the statists’ interminable gun control drama, many Second Amendment advocates seem to have dozed off. Objections to red-flag laws have been limited to ex parte hearings and surprise firearm confiscation. But red-flag laws mangle due process in even more violent ways.

[...]  (Hint: all the good stuff is in here)

Red-flag laws fly under our constitutional radar and rely on the public’s willingness to sacrifice essential liberty for a tiny gain in safety (Benjamin Franklin cautioned against this folly in 1775). Seventeen states already have enacted red-flag laws, and bills are on the move in at least six more states. In all cases, essential due process is a casualty.

I'm adding here what isn't in the article, except that it may be implied by the "due process" mention. The "Red-Flag" idea means that you, dear reader, can have your guns taken away just because somebody makes a call to the cops and says you are engaged in suspicious behavior. It doesn't have to be proved. This "somebody" can be a neighbor who has a grudge against you. Or an ex-girlfriend, boyfriend, spouse, or... anyhow, you get the picture. The possibilities of abuse are endless. And you don't get your day in court.

Any more questions? This ain't the U.S. of A. anymore with these laws. Your guns get taken away. If you don't have any guns, your house is turned upside down looking for them, and "they" don't put it back together afterward. Get the picture? These laws make nobody safer.

Report: 'Persecution of Christians Worldwide Close to Genocide'

Dana Mathewson

From PJMedia:

According to a shocking new report, Christians are "by far the most widely persecuted" members of a religion in the world. It also warns that this persecution is now nearing "genocide" levels.

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) shared the report compiled by the Bishop of Truro the Right Reverend Philip Mounstephen. It states that violence and oppression against Christians is worsening as time goes by.

"Evidence shows not only the geographic spread of anti-Christian persecution, but also its increasing severity," the report states. "In some regions, the level and nature of persecution is arguably coming close to meeting the international definition of genocide, according to that adopted by the UN."

The evidence shows that Christianity is "by far the most widely persecuted religion." This is extremely noteworthy because as many as one-third of the world's population are suffering persecution because of their religious beliefs. Of those, an estimated 80 percent are Christians.

This short article, found here https://pjmedia.com/faith/shocking-report-persecution-of-christians-worldwide-close-to-genocide/ doesn't mention the increasing disrespect Christianity is subject to here at home in the United States, at the hands of Leftists -- which would mean anybody running for President under the auspices of the Democratic [sic] Party, a.k.a. the Baby Murder Party. Think I'm exaggerating? Consider abortion. Doesn't that constitute genocide?

A Brief History of Slavery on the Birthday of Wilberforce

Timothy Birdnow

Today is the birthday of William Wilberforce, (August 24, 1759-July 29, 1833) the British statesman who successfully led the fight against slavery in Great Britain. Wilberforce, a committed Christian, started with a very minority position, but through diligence and prayer slowly turned a nation - and the n world - away from the evil institution.

Wilberforce was THE lead abolitionist in Britain, but the movement was larger than he - and the rise of slavery in America far more complex.

Slavery is the world's oldest profession, likely predating prostitution. It certainly was the cornerstone of the Roman Empire. In fact. Rome invented a steam engine at one point which the emperor at the time suppressed because he feared it put too many slaves out of work. And during the Middle Ages the Norsemen held slaves, particularly Irish (whose island made for easy pickings) but taking others as well. Medieval Europe generally outgrew the practice, primarily because they had serfs to do the work slaves just wouldn't do. Slavery never died out in the Islamic world, and in fact was one of the bones of contention between the Christian West and the Islamic East.

Russia launches floating nuclear power station

Dana Mathewson

Environmentalists warn of ‘Chernobyl on ice’


Gee, I wonder why? Might have something to do with the Russkies' recent nuclear incident? Is there a feeling they shouldn't be trusted with that stuff?

What could possibly go wrong?

A floating Russian nuclear power station that environmentalists are calling a potential "Chernobyl on ice” set sail Friday on a 3,000-mile journey across the Arctic.

The Akademik Lomonosov, which left the port of Murmansk and is destined for Pevek, is carrying highly radioactive fuel and two tsunami-proof nuclear reactors on board, according to the BBC. Three tugs are pulling the ship east so it can provide power to a remote, Siberian mining complex.

Its launch comes just two weeks after a nuclear missile explosion at a naval weapons testing range in northwestern Russia left five dead, including two people who reports say died from radiation sickness. Medics who treated victims from that blast separately told the BBC Friday they now fear that they have been irradiated themselves, as they were working with no protection and the military never warned them about any contamination risks.

 

Environmentalists have been sounding the alarm about the risks of a ship like the Akademik Lomonosov traveling through a part of the world known for harsh and unpredictable weather.

An article about the vessel posted on Greenpeace’s website says "the next nuclear catastrophe could well be a Chernobyl on ice or a Chernobyl on-the-rocks.”

Critics also are concerned about the ship polluting the Arctic and the capabilities of Russian authorities to clean up a disaster in the remote region should one occur.

 

Well, there is that, I suppose.

David Koch RIP

Warner Todd Huston

David Koch of the famed "Koch Brothers" team of billionaire political fundraisers has died. I have mixed feelings about David. Almost 20 years ago when I first started doing this political writing, Koch money helped fund me indirectly. And back then his efforts were ones I supported. But in the last 5 or so years he and his brother have really started going off the rails. I have not benefited from his funding for at least ten years, so he is no longer part of my work, but he did fund a ton of good stuff. So, I find his final legacy mixed. Mostly good, but going of the rails at the end.

Leaving Darwin

Tim McNabb

Evolution is the creation myth of the secular religion. As weird as my creation myth is, evolution is not a rational replacement. The irrationality of my faith is the belief in the intervention of a divine "unmoved mover" whereas the irrational faith of the evolutionist is that mathematical impossibility does not apply.

WATCH: Renowned Yale Prof Leaves Darwinism, Says Intelligent Design ‘Absolutely Serious’ Theory

From the article:

Renowned writer and Yale University professor David Gelernter has turned away from Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, arguing that it has too many holes and has aged out as a probable scientific theory.

The professor also argued that intelligent design is a serious theory that cannot be shooed away by anti-religious sentiment. Furthermore, he lamented the lack of "free speech" concerning theories outside of Darwinism, which has become a "religion" to many academics spanning the various scientific fields.

Buy Now Before It's All Gone!

Warner Todd Houston

Barack Obama who says climate change will put the coasts underwater in 12 yrs just bought a multi-million $$ home in the Hamptons.

7500 sq. Ft. $14.8 million asking price.

A WORD FROM TIM:

Here is the Vineyard Conservation Society's take.

It states:

Just last week the mainstream sea level rise estimate was three feet, but the new five-foot number takes into account the accelerated rate of melting by glaciers, ice caps and the enormous Greenland and West Antarctic ice sheets. Some specialists think even that estimate is low.

On the Vineyard a five-foot rise in the sea will swallow whole swaths of low-lying land–beaches, salt marshes, roads and homes. Five Corners in Vineyard Haven will disappear, as will portions of downtown Edgartown and Oak Bluffs.

The land surrounding our many majestic coastal ponds will be under water, including the shores of Chilmark and Edgartown Great Ponds, Sengekontacket and Trapp's Pond, Farm Pond, Sunset Lake and Squibnocket Pond. South Beach, Katama Point and vast portions of the Chappaquiddick shoreline will be lost to the sea. Much of Lobsterville will cease to exist, as will at least half of the Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary.

So why is Obama buying sea front property? I guess he believes his own claim to be able to stop the seas from rising...

I've got another question; how did a guy who worked as a Community Organizer make this kind of money? Where did he get it from?

Moslems save Christians

Timothy Birdnow

When the radical Islamist Al Shaabob plotted to murder a group of Christian construction workers building a hospital, a group of decent Muslims gave them warning, helping them to escape the slaughter.

From the Christian Post:

According to International Christian Concern, the Islamic extremist group Al-Shabaab had planned to storm a construction site for a new hospital in Kutulo, Kenya and kill any Christian workers they found there.

When some of the local Muslim population heard of the impending attack, they rushed to the area to tell all Christians to evacuate. They then waited for the gunmen to arrive and confronted them.

While the Muslims were unable to prevent the gunmen from opening fire on the construction site, more than 20 Christians were nevertheless able to flee the site and escape without injuries.

end

The situation in Islam is complex. Islam does call for the terrorizing of Christians and other "infidels", even though earlier parts of the Koran requires Moslems to not molest the "Peoples of the Book". See, in Islam there is something called abrogation, where later commands in the Koran supercede the earlier ones, and the latter portion of the Koran do indeed authorize the terrorizing of Christians, Jews, and Nazarenes (followers of John the Baptist.) 

But there are a lot of people who hold allegiance to Islam but don't follow the strict edicts and who are decent people. There ARE moderate Muslims. The problem they have is that a.they can't interpret the Koran because it is considered to be the actual word of God, dictated to Muhammad, rather than the inspired Word as in Judaism and Christianity, so you have to obey the text literally. Without a controlling legal authority (as in Catholicism) there is nobody to set standards. So one Moslems interpretation is as good as another, and it has to be literal. A fellow Moslem cannot tell him he's wrong.

It's part of the problem with a religion without theology or doctrine.

Also, since you cannot leave Islam without being subject to the death penalty, there are many good people who are trapped in the system of Sharia. They don't hate their neighbors and friends, but they can't admit to agnosticism or change religions.

Islam cannot reform because of the way it works. Reform equals apostacy. There are Moslems who want to reform their religion, and who believe there are good things there, but they will never succeed in stopping the terrorism and hatred because it's right there in the Koran. But they can take action to help their neighbors, as these people did.

I say this without sarcasm in this instance:

"peace be upon them!"

Obama banned Israeli Lawmakers First

Timothy Birdnow

So Trump is such a nogoodnick for giving Israel a heads up on the Squad's  plan to embarrass them. Unprecedented, you say?  Well, the BHO banned a sitting member of the Israeli Knesset from coming to America.

The media and the RINO class keep speaking about the "terrible precedent".  Well, maybe they should ask Barack Hussein Obama about it.
