The Death of Debate

This from E. Calvin Beisner

Helpful discussion of why "consensus" climate scientists refuse debate with qualified skeptics.

Truth or Consequences: Global Warming Consensus Thinking and the Decline of Public Debate

Tim adds:

The reason they won't allow debate is because they can ill-afford to air the opposing viewpoint, which would make their claims look ridiculous. They know it. This is proof that they do NOT have science on their side and this is a political issue, not a scientific one.

Coolidge Wisdom

"Unless the people, through unified action, arise and take charge of their government, they will find that their government has taken charge of them.

"Independence and liberty will be gone, and the general public will find itself in a condition of servitude.”

Blubbering Biden

Timothy Birdnow

"The reason why it’s been harder to get African Americans, initially, to get vaccinated is because they are used to be an experimented on — the Tuskegee Airmen and others,” Biden said.

So we'll experiment on all of America instead.

Filthy Fingers Feinstein

Timothy Birdnow

Public service is supposed to be low paying as a relative matter. So how did Dianne Feinstein get so loaded?

Dianne Feinstein Lists $31 M Lake Tahoe Estate

It sure wasn't from her Senate salary, which is $174,000 per year.

Washington is absolutely rotted with graft and corruption.

Filthy "Clean Energy"

Timothy Birdnow

They finally admit something we all have long known.

Finally They Admit Renewables Are Terrible For The Environment

New research from Princeton University and Bloomberg confirms that renewables require 300 - 400 times more land than natural gas and nuclear plants

From the article:

But now researchers at Princeton University and Bloomberg News have admittedthat I was right and my critics were wrong. They have just published research showing that wind farms require 370 times more land than nuclear plants, and that shifting away from nuclear and toward renewables, as Biden’s climate plan would do, would have a devastating impact on America’s natural environments.

"A 200-megawatt wind farm,” notes Bloomberg, "might require spreading turbines over 19 square miles (49 square kilometres). A natural-gas power plant with that same generating capacity could fit onto a single city block.”

Everyone agrees that we can increase, to some extent, the amount of electricity from solar panels and wind turbines. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory, whose mission is to promote renewables, claims 74% of California’s electricity could come from solar panels. Princeton estimates that 11% of electricity could come from offshore wind projects by 2050.

But after generating just 23% of its electricity from solar panels, California is suffering from blackouts and price spikes stemming from over-dependence on weather-dependent energies. Imagine what tripling solar production would do.

And it’s highly unlikely that the U.S. will add anything close to that amount of off-shore wind. Today, there are total of just sevenoff-shore wind turbines. Generating 11% of our electricity from them would require building 20,000 of them. And that’s unlikely to happen given widespread opposition from conservationists, fisherfolk, and local residents.

Record Heat in the Pacific Northwest? Nope

From Willis Eschenbach:

Given all the hype about the predictions of record heat in the Pacific Northwest, I thought I'd look at the full record of state records of record heat ...

Color me unimpressed. The Dust Bowl years of the '30s still win. Catastrophe canceled, sorry, no ticket refunds.

The Problem with Big Government

Chester McAteer:

Politicians haven't a clue about the principles of economics, in fact, in general they haven't a clue.

They tend to ignore all that they don't know and yet, always act as though they know everything.

Now this is where Politicians go astray in their policy decisions, since no individual is knowledgeable about every aspect of everyone's life, about the choices that millions of individuals make in their daily lives or the decisions that individuals would make absent political actions or inducements, politicians usually assume an ignorant position when constructing legislation. No matter how much we think we know, the truth is that we can't ever know enough to anticipate all the consequences of our actions, in particular the consequences of political actions. This is one reason why almost every piece of political legislation, no matter how good the intent behind said legislation, must be reformed because of the unknowability of unintended consequences. What happens is laws are reformed and then the reformed law must be reformed over and over because of the consequences of each subsequent reformation. Because we are not all-knowing we create errors that ultimately must be corrected and yet even the corrections don't correct the original error or the subsequent errors of continual reforms.

The problem arises when politicians assume a knowledge that they really don't, nor can they fully possess. Because of this fact, society suffers and continues to suffer, all primarily due to principles, principles of human action and political economics that politicians ignore 99.999% of the time. Every problem we face, both as individuals and as a society as a whole is due to politicians creating laws that are contrary to set principles that history has confirmed to be true for generations.

Politician's urge to make decisions for individuals without regard for the fact that we are individuals who have not only the ability but also the necessity to make choices for our lives, do a great disservice to society. The default position of the individual is freedom, freedom from coercion, from force, from external edits that are contrary to human nature and the desire of humans to be free. As individuals we are always free to either continually make the same mistakes over and over again or we learn from our mistakes. Due to the nature of politics and therefore politicians however, mistakes are rarely either corrected or lessons learned, in fact many times mistakes are not recognized for years or even decades, if ever.

For the individual, risks are a natural occurrence of choices however, the same is not true for politicians, they rarely face the same risks as individuals or even society. In fact, many times they exempt themselves from the effects of the laws they pass.

As individuals we can usually quickly determine the fact that we have made a mistake, we can quickly adjust our choices to ensure that we are not harmed or harmed as much by our mistakes. The same cannot be said for politicians and because of that fact politicians should be very circumspect in their legislative actions by following principles of economics, in particular, and have a knowledge of human action that will allow them to anticipate the consequences of the laws they pass. As much as politicians believe they can think for individuals, that it is possible for them to make decisions and choices for individuals it is absolutely impossible and therein is the crux of crafting legislation.

Politicians are not made from any finer clay than any of the rest of us, being elected doesn't empower them with any special knowledge or a greater ability to understand the intricacies of either individuals or, in particular, society as a whole. Politicians have the same innate desire as any other individual, like all of us, for certainty but the unbelievable number of variables in life make such certainty impossible. It is this desire that tends to foil good legislation, the desire to eliminate all pain and suffering, all poverty and inequities when such desire is impossible. For many politicians, this desire tends to create more problems than they ever solve because they forget the first principle of humanity and that is we are born as individuals who need their individual freedom.



Tim adds:

Well said. That's why laws should be few, concise, and limited in scope. The People should make decisions about their own lives.

No Abortion and Capital Punishment do not Have Parity in the church

Mary Kay Barton forwarded this article:

Bishops to Biden: There is no such thing as ‘private’ Catholicism

Tim replies:

You can't be a "cafeteria Catholic" and pick and choose what parts of the Faith you wish to embrace or reject. Biden and other so-called Catholic politicians do that on a regular basis.

What goes unsaid is Biden is excommunicated whether the Church issued a formal ban or not, and his receiving Holy Communion is a mortal sin on his soul.

Another point about all this; many on the Left are arguing that the Pope issued a ban on capital punishment and this is as serious as abortion,they claim, and so Republican Catholics who support capital punishment are as guilty as pro-abortion Democrats. That is not true.

Pope Francis wrote an encyclical which is NOT binding on Catholics; it is not a matter of Faith and Morals. Papal encyclicals are "magisterial teachings" but are not ex cathedra, meaning statements issued under papal infallibility. In other words, this is just Pope Francis opinion.

Not the case with abortion, which has a long pedigree of opposition and Pope Benedict gave it the highest reprove as a matter of Faith and Morals. The two are in no way equal.

BTW Pope Francis disregarded 2000 years of precedent and multiple scriptural passages to declare the Death Penalty immoral. https://www.firstthings.com/web-exclusives/2018/08/pope-francis-and-capital-punishment Abortion has always been considered immoral by the Catholic Church.

White Privilege or Serfdom?

Selwyn Duke

https://www.selwynduke.com/2021/06/white-privilege-whites-required-to-pay-reparations-fee-to-attend-seattle-event.html


There’s much talk about "white privilege” today, and it’s becoming ever clearer what it really means: being last in line or excluded for benefits but perhaps alone in line paying bills.

The latest example is a Seattle black "gay pride” event whose organizers said they would charge whites a "reparations fee” of up to $50 to attend.

(What a bargain! If I didn’t have something better to do, like sticking needles in my eyes, I’d go and bring three friends.)

Thinning the Herd

Richard Cronin:

Both Andrew Cuomo (D - NY) and Gavin Newsom (D -CA) are on the outs, with Newsom subject to a recall election later this year. It’s clear that the DNC doesn’t want a circus of tiresome wanna-bes in 2024. Kamala Harris is the Democrat anointed one. All potential contenders must be eliminated.

It wouldn’t surprise me that several DNC operatives ginned up support for Newsom’s recall.

Was Cheap Solar China's Grand Plan Against America?

This from Frank Lasee

Did they do this to entice and trick the west. In a grand plan to take over. To call the shots.

Tim adds:

I think you may be on to something there Frank. It would explain a lot. China's generals have been saying war with the U.S. is inevitable since the '90's and it would be a good strategy.

They enslaved Uyghars to build them, after all.

Biden is a Clear and Present Danger to America

Timothy Birdnow

A lot of people are excusing Biden's threat to nuke Americans as an example of his dementia. I disagree. Joe Biden and his Junta are a clear and present danger to America and Americans.

Biden does not say anything his staff didn't approve. This has nothing to do with dementia. This is a direct warning to the American People.

 Biden and his friends know what they plan to do to us could well lead to revolution and they want to make it clear they will do whatever it takes to hold power "a whiff of the grape" as Napoleon said, would disperse a rebel crowd. These people will give us a whiff of atomic fallout.

Yes, they will go to those lengths to hold power.

And there was NO restrictions on owning any weapons in the early days. None. Biden is a liar.

But, but, but...all rights are restricted, they say. You can't yell "fire" in a crowded theater!"  Well, that is a whole different thing. Restrictions on speech are ONLY on the weaponized use of speech. You can't yell fire because the intent is to harm people by causing panic. Uh, you can't use a firearm with the intent of harming someone either. Nobody ever restricted laws against unlawful use of a weapon. You can't rob someone at gunpoint and think the Second Amendment protects you. It's the USE of the weapon just as it is the USE of speech that is important.

Gun grabbing is like forcibly removing words from our vocabulary, or making people wear masks to make it hard for us to be understood (oh wait, they tried that...)

The only reason to restrict guns is to restrict people's right to defend themselves. Even if it isn't fear of rebellion, it's a tool to make the public completely dependent on the authorities for their own safety. Such people will vote for bigger government as their only option.

This is all carefully planned.

If Trump had said this he would be gone by now, either through the 25th Amendment or through impeachment. But little is said of Biden.

As to having war planes and nukes, will he be able to nuke the whole citizenry? Revolutions are fought, and quite successfully, in cities and communities via guerilla warfare. His vain threat wouldn't stop a determined foe. But it is intended to show how determined these people are, and what little regard they have for the normal Americans.

Make no mistake; these are the words of a tyrant. Saddam Hussein would recognize them if he were still around. They could have been taken from his own mouth (had he had nuclear weapons.)

Revised Disclosure of Interest

This from John Lees:

I only just found out that the Lancet is now hosting a revised disclosure of interests from the author of their earlier "consensus" statement that Covid could not be man-made.
In which the author is revealed to have been directly involved in the manufacture of man-made "recombinant" versions of bat coronaviruses.
At least we now have absolute clarity on this point:
"[EcoHealth Alliance's work in China involves].. the production of a small number of recombinant bat coronaviruses to analyse cell entry and other characteristics

of bat coronaviruses for which only the genetic sequences are available. NIH reviewed the planned recombinant virus work and deemed it does not meet the criteria that would warrant further specific review by its Potential Pandemic Pathogen Care and Oversight (P3CO) committee."
Only a small number. How reassuring. Unfortunately, we only needed one to turn out to be highly contagious and escape containment.
I don't care that they only made a "small number". One was enough.

Apparently it did not dawn on him that this might be a teeny weeny conflict of interest, when the initial article was published and promoted.

The Test of Time?

This from David Nabhan:

Took them 10,000 years to declare that gluten and dairy were bad, five centuries to put thumbs down on cigarettes and coffee—and many, many decades to realize that arsenic in wallpaper, radium in bathwater, lead in paint and just about damn near everything we touch is toxic. But not the untested vaccine they rolled out slap-dash in the quickest rush in history--in a tenth the time. THAT one, it’s A-OK. How lucky we are to live in this error-free age of perfection!

Be All That You Can Be

Warner Todd Huston

Biden has really burnished his military prowess over the last few weeks. First we find that the Air Force proudly held a drag queen show. Then the Navy celebrates Pride Month. Then General Milley says he doesn't understand why saying America is an evil racist nation is such a bad thing. And just yesterday, Biden said he'd use nukes and F15s to kill American gun owners if they don't accept his gun ban policies.

Yes, the U.S. military is soaring to new heights this year.

And That's No Bull!

This from David Nabhan:

I once asked a toreador how, after fooling the bull by swishing his cape one way, he could still maintain faith that the animal was going to fall for the next similar swish of the cape but in the opposite direction. "They’re that dumb,” he replied dryly. Then he added, "People can fall for the same thing over and over again too, you know.” Indeed, over these last months it became a punchline as lying politicos desperately attempted to inflate the virus hysteria by chalking up every fatality from mountain falls to sudden infant death syndrome to the dreaded covid. And now the cape is simply being waved back the other way. Now the same moving lips assure that 7,495,621,374,8

50 units of the vaccine have been administered—an d with astonishingly only three deaths to show for it, if that.

Evidence of Massive Fraud in Georgia

Timothy Birdnow

Looks like there is evidence of massive vote fraud in Georgia, according to a report issued by a contractor for Georgia's Secretary of State investigating the 2020 election.

November Memo Documents 'Massive' Voter Integrity Problems in Atlanta

This memo chronicled numerous problems in Atlanta, including chain of custody issues, double counting, insecure ballots, and a host of other issues.

The memo was written by Carter Jones of Seven Hills Strategies.

Strangely the Georgia Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger ignored the memo and claimed against all evidence that it was the fairest election in history.

Raffensperger also was the guy on the infamous telephone call where Trump was asking him to do his job and the media portrayed that as Trump trying to tamper with the election process.

Bob Cheeley, who is running the audit in Fulton County, also says there is "election tabulation malpractice" and wants the election officials removed. He is uncertain whether it was just gross incompetence or fraud. Ri-ight.

Real Clear Politics deals with this too.

One thing is clear; the Democrats stole this, both the Presidency and the Senate. They now hold power by theft. That must not, cannot be allowed to stand.

But the scared rabbits in the GOP will allow it because there are too many slimy things under their own rocks.

Death from Covid Shot

Selwyn Duke

www.selwynduke.com/2021/06/pro-vaccine-woman-my-13-year-old-nephew-died-three-days-after-2nd-covid-shot.html

Some experts are warning that minors under 18 shouldn’t be given COVID vaccinations. The "risks are not worth the gains from preventing a disease that very rarely causes serious problems in the young,” as The Times put it on June 16, citing Britain’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation. Sadly, this information came too late for Jacob Clynick, a 13-year-old boy with no known health problems who passed away recently after receiving a China virus vaccination.
