WTF??

November 20, 2015

Black Lives Matter protesters disrupted students studying in the library at Dartmouth University by screaming obscene and racist remarks such as “F**k you, you filthy white f**ks” and “F**k you, you racist shits” and getting into physical altercations with the students. Dartmouth’s Vice Provost for student affairs, Inge-Lise Ameer, apologized…to the BLM protesters for the negative responses and media coverage that they received. WTF??

While French President Francois Hollande labeled the Paris attacks an act of war, President Obama called them a “setback” and Secretary of State John Kerry expressed surprise that the Paris attacks lacked the rationaleof the Charlie Hebdo murders. WTF??

Bloomberg columnist Margaret Carlson minimized the dangers of illegal immigration and Syrian refugees arguing that “maybe” terrorists sneaking into the US would become patriotically Americanized and their anger would go away because we have a history of successfully integrating immigrants. WTF??

In Lowell, Mass., Lindsay Miller has been allowed to wear a pasta strainer on her head in her driver’s license photo because she is a religious member, a “Pastafarian”, of “The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster”, officially recognized as a religion in Poland. WTF??

Colorado’s State Legislature will hold a vote in June on whether or not to legalize the purchasing, selling, and distributing, of hard drugs including heroin, meth, cocaine, and peyote. According to State Senator John Perry Barlow, legalizing these drugs will “empty out the dregs of our prisons and bring in millions of dollars in tax revenues for our state” and “make drug abuse treatment a more viable option for addicts and doctors alike”. WTF??

Princeton students are demanding the university “acknowledge the racist legacy of Woodrow Wilson”; University of Texas students are demanding a tuition-free education and cancellation of student debts; and Occidental College students are demanding campus safety officers stop wearing bullet-proof vests. WTF??

97% Bull

October 9, 2015

It is ridiculous that global warming enthusiasts continue to use the “97% scientific consensus” myth as a fact. Not only has it been thoroughly debunked, common sense tells us it is almost impossible to obtain a 97% consensus on anything. Nevertheless, the farce continues.

Recently, Ted Cruz grilled Sierra Club President Aaron Mair on climate change data and was subjected to an embarrassing repeated recitation of the 97% myth as “preponderance” of evidence for man-made global warming. It is held like a religious tenet among believers and anything to the contrary is dismissed out-of-hand. Even president Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have cited the 97% myth as fact, giving it an aura of legitimacy that fuels the belief.

When evidence began to surface challenging the validity of man-made global warming, believers changed tactics. They began calling global warming “climate change”, an indisputable occurrence on earth that cannot be denied. They still mean man-made global warming but the name change allows them to fend off some criticism while remaining self-righteous.

Dr. David Evans, an Australian climate modeler and mathematician, recently found errors in the basic climate model used in climate science. When he corrected the errors, he found the climate’s sensitivity to carbon dioxide to be much lower than previously assumed, reducing estimated effects on global warming almost ten-fold. Errors in climate models are not unusual because the science behind the models is not “settled”. It is an ongoing process.

The media, however, has determined the matter “settled” and uses the 97% myth to deride anyone questioning that man-made global warming is occurring at a catastrophic level. It has become more a political issue than a scientific issue resulting in billions of dollars spent solving a problem that has not been scientifically validated. It does, however, fit a political agenda and that is reason enough to continue citing 97% consesus.

Politics and science do not mix well and under the umbrella of political correctness, reasonable debate on the issue has become stifled. Perhaps that’s deliberate. The progressive agenda does not like reasonable debate – about 97% of the time.

Random Questions

June 2, 2015

Since France is supposed to have better medical care than the US, why did John Kerry bother to come back to the U.S. for treatment of his broken leg?

What fantasy world is President Obama living in where (as he stated) his administration has restored the United States as the “the most respected country on earth”?

Don’t ongoing hostilities make President Obama’s claim of having ended “two wars” (simply by declaring them over) an obvious farce?

With more people now than at any time since 2001 having an unfavorable opinion of Hillary, is it really a lock for her to be the Democrat’s 2016 presidential candidate?

Will reporters ever get tired of Hillary refusing to answer questions and turn against her?

Is it really a surprise, after Mayor Rawlings-Blake sided against the police, that Baltimore’s homicide rate for May is the worst it has been in 40 years?

How much longer can the media and progressives ignore the connection between Democrat-controlled cities, poverty, and economic failure?

What does Al Sharpton hold over MSNBC’s head in order to keep his pathetically low-rated show, “Politics Nation”, from being cancelled? (Why does Sharpton even have a TV show?)

Since several of the world’s most polluting countries are doing nothing to curb pollution (such as China), shouldn’t we be using our resources preparing to survive what many believe is inevitable global warming rather than futilely trying to stop it?

With dozens of health insurers selling plans under Obamacare requesting premium hikes of 20-30%, isn’t it time for all to admit that Obama lied about costs as well as keeping our doctors and plans?

This time around, will Democrats flip-flop and say that experience is necessary in a presidential candidate?

Are there any new TV series coming that won’t have a gay character? Is that even allowed?

Kerry Insults Israel – Again

April 28, 2014

Secretary of State John Kerry is obviously in over his head dealing with foreign policy and totally frustrated by his failed diplomatic efforts. He now seems to be frantically searching for any success he can find by joining the blame game and insulting Israel. That, at least, will get Palestinians behind him.

Sounding much like Jimmy Carter, Kerry said that if Israel doesn’t make peace soon, it could become an apartheid state. Kerry, like better men before him, can’t get Palestinians interested in making peace so he is taking the easiest and safest road by putting the onus on Israel. Palestinian rockets cannot shake Kerry’s bias.

Israel Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon dared state the obvious when he accused the Obama administration of being weak on Iran and questioned its commitment to Israel. The entire world knows Obama has been weak on Iran and that Israel will be forced to solve that problem by itself. This administration’s diplomacy, however, has been based on empty rhetoric, so honest dialogue is seen as a threat.

Kerry is making matters worse in the Middle East. That’s certainly dangerous enough for Obama to demand his resignation. Don’t hold your breath.

Kerry is Scary

September 4, 2013

We have witnessed chemical weapon use in Syria because Obama elicits little respect and no fear from the international community or, more poignantly, from depots and terrorists. It is hard to imagine a Reagan or Bush “red line” (a line which Obama is now claiming he didn’t set) being so blatantly ignored or challenged. Obama was poked and prodded right from the start of his administration and found to be weak. Syria’s chemical weapon use is a direct result.

Obama selected John Kerry to run the State Department. This is a man who, after serving in Vietnam, came home and joined the anti-war movement, making wild, blanket accusations against our military personnel, voted as Senator against the Iraq War, and voted to pull all our troops out of Afghanistan – In other words, a man with Obama values. This could only be more surreal if Jane Fonda was at his side, egging him on.

The left’s unconditional backing of Obama requires hypocrisy, back-pedaling, and rationalization to remain intact and John Kerry is up to the task. He is arguing that attacking Syria is not war “in the classic sense”, a rhetorical distinction allowing him to keep his anti-war and anti-military persona while advocating the very war-like bombing of Syria. Lesser men would have laughed while speaking such gibberish, but Kerry maintained his composure and his acquiescence to Obama’s wishes without so much as a titter.

Right or wrong about attacking Syria, and there certainly is much controversy, Kerry is a poor choice for making the case. His distaste for the military was proudly displayed years ago and it is frightening to find him advocating an action with possible serious consequences; one that doesn’t jive with his personal beliefs. How can there be any credibility in what he says? There is none.

Kerry is scary, and this entire debacle is more frightening because of his involvement. He is as mis-cast in this role as John Cusack is in “The Butler” playing President Nixon (talk about a surreal experience). Then, again, Obama as Commander-in-Chief doesn’t bring a warm and fuzzy feeling, either.

This does not bode well for our nation.

John Kerry and Leona Helmsley

July 25, 2010

In case you’ve forgotten, Leona Helmsley famously said “We don’t pay taxes, only little people pay taxes.”

Apparently Senator John Kerry, (D, MA) agrees.

The Boston Herald has this story about Kerry and his new $7 million sailboat.

Sen. John Kerry, who has repeatedly voted to raise taxes while in Congress, dodged a whopping six-figure state tax bill on his new multimillion-dollar yacht by mooring her in Newport, R.I.

Isabel – Kerry’s luxe, 76-foot New Zealand-built Friendship sloop with an Edwardian-style, glossy varnished teak interior, two VIP main cabins and a pilothouse fitted with a wet bar and cold wine storage – was designed by Rhode Island boat designer Ted Fontaine.

But instead of berthing the vessel in Nantucket, where the senator summers with the missus, Teresa Heinz, Isabel’s hailing port is listed as “Newport” on her stern.

Could the reason be that theOcean State repealed its Boat Sales and Use Tax back in 1993, making the tiny state to the south a haven – like the Cayman Islands, Bermuda and Nassau – for tax-skirting luxury yacht owners?

The Lunacy of Leniency

December 26, 2009

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ignored a deadline set by the UN for making a swap deal concerning its enriched uranium  (http://tinyurl.com/y8bkl2b). There is no surprise in Iran’s dismissal except in the Obama administration where soaring rhetoric was expected to bring a ruthless leader to his knees.

Obama’s much-heralded diplomacy has allowed Iran all the time it needs to continue its nuclear weapons program with immunity. Internal protests against Iran’s regime have been violently squelched while protestors’ pleas to Obama for help have been ignored.

Now, another administration diplomatic guru is considering handing the Iran regime even more legitimacy by becoming the first high-level U.S. emissary to make a public visit to Tehran since the 1979 Islamic revolution. Senator John Kerry wants to go to Iran and attempt more toothless diplomacy (http://tinyurl.com/ydjsymm).

Many believe that Ahmadinejad is a madman. He may be but he knows exactly what he is doing. The real lunacy seems to be on the part of the US administration and the UN for continuing to deal with him in rational ways that are useless. A little more of this and Iran will have nuclear weapons with which to blackmail the entire world.

I don’t think John Kerry’s visit to Iran is going to make Ahmadinejad see the light. His brief visit to the Vietnam War turned him against our own troops. This trip could turn out just as bad.
