Hillary Forgets it's Hot in Summer, Blames MAGA

Timothy Birdnow

Hillary Clinton blames MAGA for hot summer days.

From El Zoro News:

Clinton's social media postcame in response to a tweet from left-wing think tank Center for American Progress which stated "MAGA Republicans are pouring fuel on the climate crisis fire." The post included an image of recent media stories highlighting the recent spate of high temperatures in the U.S. and noted Republicans voted against the Inflation Reduction Act, Democrats' $739 billion climate package — which President Biden signed into law in 2022.

"Hot enough for you? Thank a MAGA Republican. Or better yet, vote them out of office," Clinton tweeted Tuesday.

Thank God this woman never became President.

I guess she and the Center for American Progress don't know we are in an El Nino, or that the sun has been active this year. Or that the records we set are tied with many other years.

Or that we have no control over the weather. They do not understand basic science. The "blanket of co2" supposedly holding in heat is really more like chicken wire, with just four molecules of every ten thaousand being co2. And they release their energy in a picosecond, and most of it is going to go upward anyway.

But it's the Republicans fault and especially the MAGA crowd!

I guess Hillary has been so long in the lap of luxury she forgot it gets hot outside in summer.

Wildfires NOT Caused by Global Warming

John Lees

As is now standard whenever there is a major wildfire, the media trot out the assumption that wildfire is a worsening problem globally.
I will accept that arson, accidentally caused fires, the number of people living in harm's way and the value of property damaged may well be increasing.
But, has wildfire extent increased around the world?
According to this paper published by the Royal Society... NO!!

royalsocietypublishing.org


Tim adds:

"the value of property damaged may well be increasing" Yes, because so many more people are living in places where they did not used to live and thus at greater risk of damage. it's a function of population rise. And of course we know they aren't culling the forests these days the way they used to . Forests - and grasslands - burn in a state of nature. We suppressed that by removing fuel. But now this idea we need a "pristine" old growth forest left as nature intended means going back to large destructive fires. All of this is a coefficient of a natural process we used to control. The same is true for flooding; we are building in flood plains now and then surprised when flood damage is greater than ever. It's not warming but human stupidity.

Active Sun and Heat; Don't Gamble on the Weather

Tomer Tamarkin

From Dr. Peter Stallinga:

For everybody following the mainstream news, especially about the weather.

Currently we have the combination of a very active Sun and a very strong El Niño, both contributing to a relatively warm summer in Europe and America. It should also be noted that this is the last solar cycle with high activity, the Sun will go to sleep for a while. Thus, this warm weather is a foreboding of a mini ice age awaiting ....

Yet, to show you how difficult climate prediction is, this solar cycle is much bigger than expected (see image). And also El Niños and La Niñas are not predictable.

If people tell you they predict the climate, protect your wallet, you are beinMay be an image of text that says '150 ISES Sunspot Number: 2002 2023 You are here 100 ----.---...--...-.1 years official forecast uncertainty actual data 50 June 2023 Cycle 23 July 2025 2004 2006 2008 Solar Cyçle 24 2010 2012 2014 2016 2018 2020 Solar Cycle 25 2022 2024 2026 2028'g swindled.

Cameron on AI

Carlos Velazquez

Cameron has a built in bias to promote the theme of his apocalyptic and entertaining and fascinating movies which I've always enjoyed. He is a remarkable story teller. But if you know anything about computer systems and the hugely complex requirements necessary to achieve compatibility among the myriad systems AI would have to access and control, you'd realize Skynet is an extremely unlikely scenario. The likelier possibility, which I've posted about and which Musk agrees is the real danger, is that an AI programmed to scour and learn from social media will learn how to impersonate humans and take to social media and post messages that will mislead many to bad societal outcomes.
lovelyti, profile picture

lovelyti

James Cameron is weighing in on AI as computer programming continues to mature and become more sophisticated. The director of The Terminator made a call back to the film he also co-wrote and that Arnold Schwarzenegger starred in.

"I warned you guys in 1984, and you didn’t listen,” he told CTV News about AI.

"I think the weaponization of AI is the biggest danger,” he added. "I think that we will get into the equivalent of a nuclear arms race with AI, and if we don’t build it, the other guys are for sure going to build it, and so then it’ll escalate.”

Cameron doesn’t think AI will replace writers anytime soon saying, "I just don’t personally believe that a disembodied mind that’s just regurgitating what other embodied minds have said — about the life that they’ve had, about love, about lying, about fear, about mortality — and just put it all together into a word salad and then regurgitate it … I don’t believe that have something that’s going to move an audience.”

He continued, "Let’s wait 20 years, and if an AI wins an Oscar for Best Screenplay, I think we’ve got to take them seriously.”

Tim adds:

I think the greatest of all dangers is AI takes over doing the work Americans Just Won't Do, and eventually all of humanity will become horribly enfeebled by it. We've seen that happen in aristocratic societies repeatedly and know people become weak and inbred and decadent if they have too little to do themselves. I fear this is what AI will do to the whole world. After the crash which is inevitable few will be able to survive because everything will be on the computers and print books will probably hve disappeared and the public won't know how to use them or do anything anyway. The great Irish famine was caused by overreliance on one staple crop. That's kind of where we are going with AI, only in spades.

ChatGPT Admits Evolution May Have it Wrong

Carlos Velazquez

ChatGPT AI admits there has never been any positive/ improvement observed in so-called genetic evolution.

"ChatGPT: Studies have shown that certain gene losses and functional changes have occurred during human evolution. For example: Loss of Olfactory Receptor Genes: Humans have a relatively smaller number of functional olfactory receptor genes compared to other mammals. This reduction is thought to be associated with a decreased reliance on the sense of smell and an increased emphasis on other sensory modalities during human evolution.
Pseudogenizatio n and Gene Inactivation: Some genes that were functional in ancestral species have become non-functional (pseudogenes) or have been inactivated in humans. These changes can occur due to genetic mutations that disrupt the functionality of the gene or make it no longer necessary for the organism's survival."

So So Socialists

Diane Kimura

When the socialists howl against "the evils of capitalism," they have yet to offer a better system that will continue to lift more people out of poverty.

Perhaps, we should offer a swap: free transport for all socialists to the socialist country of their choice and we allow people who love America and seek opportunities vs handouts to become lawful citizens.

The map below shows the GDP per capita (as a proxy for average incomes) for each country as of 2021. Per capita GDP in the countries colored red and orange are still below $4,000.

May be an image of map and text that says 'Under 800 800 -4,000 4,000 8,000 8,000 12,000 12,000- 24,000 24,000- 36,000 36,000 48,000 48,000- 60,000 60,000or more'

Tim adds:

And you will notice that those who push socialism are the last to give their own money to the poor. Red states are far more charitable than blue states, and "capitalist" countries more so than socialist. If these people really meant what they said they would hand over their own money to the poor, lead by example. But look at these people; Bernie Sanders is worth several milloion bucks and owns three houses but he's for the poor and working man! What socialists want is to be able to put their hands in the pockets of people whoa ctually do something.

Death by AI

Any person or organization or government who makes a life/death decision solely on "AI" input is crazy and does not understand the limitations of AI. And that includes AI powered robot "soldiers."

Law Professors Call for Biden to Ignore SCOTUS

Timothy Birdnow

A group of law professors want Joe Biden to simply ignore the U.S. Supreme Court and make himself into the First Citizen.

Red State points out that a Harvard law prof and one from San Francisco State U. wrote that Biden should ignore "wrong" rulings - especially over affirmative action - and simply impose his own will in monarchial fashion under the guise of "popular constitutionalism" whatever the hell that means.

The Left is going full tyrant these days.

Maybe the universities should hold these guys respective paychecks under the guise of "popular academism"?

They should understand refusing to faithfully execute the laws of the United States is a violation of Biden's oath of office and grounds for impeachment, right?

Limiting the Out of Control israeli Supreme Court

John F. Di Leo

The Left is unjustly attacking Israel for passing a law today that finally limits Israel's supreme court.

The mistake people make is in assuming that Israel is structured like the United States. It's not.

In a proper constitutional republic (as the USA was designed to be), the constitution limits ALL branches of government. No branch can exceed the authority granted by the constitution.

Israel has no constitution, so in Israel, the voters (represented by the Knesset) must hold the whip hand. SOMEBODY has to. Otherwise, whichever body has the most dictatorial inclination will take control (remember, "nature abhors a vacuum.")

Irael's supreme court has been acting as an authoritarian body for years. It NEEDED to be limited.

Congratulations to the Knesset for standing up to the woke mob and taking the action that Israel needed.

The Seriousness of What the Democrats are Doing

"The seriousness of what is being done to Donald Trump by local and federal Democrat prosecutors cannot be overstated. it is alarming. It is shocking. And this republic is teetering,” he wrote. "It is extremely difficult to fight all these prosecutors, and fight for your freedom, and run for president at the same time. And these prosecutors know it.”
"The fundamental transformation of America’ they are constantly talking about will have been enshrined, with more to come,” he wrote. "This is tyranny.” ~ Marc Levin

About the "Experts"

John F. Di Leo

Trust the experts? Um, maybe not.

18-Year-Old's Science Reporting Leads Stanford President to Quit
sciencealert.com


Tim adds:

Well let's see; "experts" told us that bumps on the head could explain personality, that blood letting cured "blood poisoning",, that the races are at different evolutionary levels and so we should try to breed out the bad stock (eugenics), They told us ulcers were cause by stress and that you can't lose weight eating all protein. I could go on but I think I've made the point.

As Glenn Greenwald said " ""Incestuous, homogeneous fiefdoms of self-proclaimed expertise are always rank-closing and mutually self-defending, above all else.”

That is what Academia presents by and large.

I would add that Liberals believe in experts and distrust the common wisdom. Conservatives trust the wisdom of crowds and tend to be distrustful of "experts" because those experts are self-crowned and usually reach the level they are at by self-promotion.

Yes, there are cases of expertise - such as in building a bridge or performing surgery - that the crowd cannot do. But that is quite different from the kinds of expertise we see today, which basically revolves around stuffed shirts bloviating about their personal opinions.

And Academic success is based on novelty. Nobody wants to just be a solid researcher; they want to make a splash. To do that you have to come up with some new and spectacular idea. So the academic is forever reinventing the wheel in an effort to find something to make a name for himself.

And rule by experts leads to a tyranny worse than any in history. People have to be forced to obey them.

The Big Steal

Lynn Clhu

Reading the literature on the 2020 election, it is clear that our voter rolls across the nation are completely corrupt and easily manipulated by bad actors. The more computerized, the more easily corrupted and controlled by crooks. Both major political parties indulge in vote rigging. But Ds are way ahead of Rs in these dark arts.

A lot of data is available but analyzing it all is a bitch.

The Soros Revolution

Timothy Birdnow

George Soros and Sons is funding the Revolution:

One of the Biggest Organizations Helping Democrats Win Elections
theepochtimes.com


[...] America Votes can maintain its considerable year-round power thanks to significant support from funding behemoths Sixteen Thirty Fund, the Open Society Foundation, and countless others.

In 2021, the Open Society Foundation, founded by George Soros and now chaired by his son, Alexander Soros, gave America Votes four grants totaling almost $29.9 million. One grant alone was $23.85 million and was one of the most significant single grants the Open Society Foundation awarded in 2021. Open Society hasn’t yet released its 2022 awarded grants. The Open Society Foundation didn’t respond to The Epoch Times’ request for comment about its donations to America Votes. [...]

The GOP doesn't have a chance. There is a reason the DNC dominates all the high density population cities, when they 'knock on doors' it's close proximity, they run the unions, all levels of government and education, and they love rich Leftists such as George Soros (now his son Alex).

Tim adds:

In 2022 the Democrats outspent the Republicans 10 to 1. With money they will win every time. The Red Wave turned into a pink wrinkle.

Trump in the Lead

Timothy Birdnow

Trump is ahead of Joe Biden 45% to 40% in the latest left wing Harvard Harris poll.

Trump is up18% with Independents, the guys we were told hated Donald Trump and we had to dump Trump or lose.

You know, in 2020 Donald Trump won 74 million votes. That in a country with only 38.8 million registered Republicans. Who voted for Trump? Clearly he picked up a lot of independents. He also picked up a lot of Demcorats.

And that hasn't changed despite what the media is trying to tell us. In 2022 over million suburban voters switched to the GOP. https://www.pbs.org/newshour/politics/more-than-1-million-voters-switch-to-gop-raising-alarm-for-democrats

I know it's early yet and much can change. Certainly the multiple prosecutions will probably bear some fruit at some point; they will eventually find a bunch of suckers to sell their "Trump is a mass criminal" scam to and Trump will have to appeal. If nothing else Trump is going to spend all his time in court and won't be able to campaign - his personal strong suit.

But is it time to change horses in panic? Seems to me Mr. Trump is doing pretty well at this point, and the more the Demo-left squeezes the more sympathy Mr. Trump gets from the voters. I think he could win it all, even with the massive vote fraud they we will see in this coming election.

(BTW Trump reminds me of Grover Cleveland. Cleveland was an outsider seeking reform too, and the Establishment hated him and fought him bitterly. He lost re-election to Benjamin Harrison, who stole the election in Indiana to win. Cleveland came back and squahsed Harrison in a rematch. He, like Trump, talked of draining the swamp - and the swamp doesn't like dry land.)

At any rate Trump is in the catbird seat if he can stay out of prison. If not he can always pardon himself from his jail cell.

Wither Impeachment?

Timothy Birdnow

Here is exactly what is wrong with the GOP and their complete ineptness at power politics.

Hot Air's Jazz Shaw asks where is the GOP and where are the calls to impeach Joe "Blow" Biden.

Shaw theorizes at the end and sound rather in agreement, that the GOP has to be careful because of Trump; they don't want to legitimatize an impeachment and suggests instead they may want to just keep dribbling this stuff out.

That is profoundly wrong.

The Democrats twice impeached Mr. Trump, and smeared him with multiple investigations over lies, precisely because they knew there would be no retribution, nothing done in reprisal.

IF the GOP fails to impeach Biden then the Democrats see this is a viable option in the future. They think that way.

And what of the rest? It MAY hurt Trump but probably not. More likely it will disgust the public who will see parity between the two. NOT impeaching Biden puts him on a higher moral plane than Mr. Trump. He will appear clean and the GOP will appear to be just going after Biden on dubious claims they know to be false, or have so little confidence in they don't want to bring charges. It will appear to the public as an admission of weakness. You  have to act on this stuff.

And if the Biden Administration can be shown to be so corrupt it will suggest to the public that Donald Trump is merely being persecuted.

But you get nothing if you do nothing. Biden looks clean. By comparison then Trump looks dirty. The Democrats see they can get away with this. Prosecutors see they can just use lawfare to ruin Republicans.

And the media will continue to put a lid on this and it will just be background noise. Only an impeachment will work; that cannot be ignored by the media, nor can Biden just sidestep it.

The time for half-measures and overthinking this stuff is over. We need resolute action.

This sort of tip-toeing is vintage RINO Republicanism. All it will do is cost the GOP, more seats, more money, and probably the Presidency.

The rules of engagement are set by the aggressor. The Democrats have been the aggressor. It is the job of Congressional Republicans to learn to play by those rules. They seem utterly unwilling to learn to fight as dirty as the Democrats.

Being the bigger man is what every cowering child with a baby tooth knocked out and his lunch money stolen has tried and failed to do. It's the fast way to get your head stove in.

I cannot believe the GOP is still that naive. They must know the stupidity of refusing to respond in kind. Shoot; even if Biden were pure as the wind driven snow I'd advocate he be impeached. Tit for tat must be th rule. I know, Gandi said an eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth makes the whole world blind and toothless. But not following that precept leads one bully with two good eyes, a mouth full of teeth, and the other fellow blind in both eyes and toothless, plus broke as the bully will now have his bank roll.

The GOP acts as nothing but a foil, the Wiley Coyote to the Democrat Road Runner. They exist to lose, and they play that part quite well. But that is not what WE elected them to do. WE want them to win, for US. They have other plans. They like losing because the bully lets them keep some of their lunch money. Or worse. Actually the bully has taken the GOP on as the toadie, the weak kid who basks in the glory of the fear of the bully. They get their cut, if less. And that is satisfactory to them.

But it isn't to us. If the GOP refuses to impeach Joe Biden they will lose us to a third party. I know I'll join one.

And who cares if Kamala winds up President? She is a political disaster, and even if not she is no worse a manager and administrator than Joe Biden, who showed himself totally incompetent repeatedly.

No, we want Biden impeached, even if the impeachment fails. It is the only way to turn the tide. Otherwise all we do is fight defense. We've got to stop defending and start attacking.
