The IPCC’s Global Warming Baloney and Noah (A new wave of Hot Air)

with 3 comments

Call me a skeptic, but isn’t it a coincidence that the latest fear mongering report from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change came out on the heels of the world-wide premiere of Noah, Hollywood’s latest big-budget disaster movie?

The former was produced by a group of UN hack scientists who all make a living off government grants, either directly or indirectly.  The latter was directed by Darren Aronofsky, an atheist who turned the biblical account of the flood brought about by God because of widespread immorality into a movie about man’s degradation of the environment.

The message in both this report and the movie is that “It’s not nice to mess with Mother Nature.”  The implication in the film is that man’s sin was disrespecting the planet and the movie gives us a taste of what is in store if we don’t shape up.   Read the rest of this entry »

When the Going gets Tough (The Tough get out of Town)

with 3 comments

To say that President Obama is unpopular these days is like saying the weather changes or garbage smells. It’s obvious.

Instead of garbage, it’s Obamacare that is stinking up the place and no amount of running away from the problem or burning 25,000 gallons of jet fuel can escape this disaster.  Nevertheless Obama put 3,000 miles between himself and Washington, D.C., over the long President’s Day weekend traveling to my state of  California on the eve of the fifth anniversary of his second biggest achievement, the Obama stimulus.

Did I mention that one smells too?    Read the rest of this entry »

Gingrich reignites Climate Change Controversy

with one comment

“Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get.” Mark Twain

Does a leopard change its spots?  Does a tiger change its strips?

Newt Gingrich is what you might call a striped leopard or a spotted tiger.  When it comes to what some see as the impending doom of climate change, the former speaker of the House is trying to have it both ways.

On December 20, at a campaign stop in Iowa, he looked more like a deer than a leopard or tiger –  a deer caught in the headlights of an oncoming vehicle.   When confronted by a woman who expressed concern about a chapter on climate change being written for his post election book on the environment by climate change apologist Katherine Hayhoe, Newt began backpedaling. “That’s not going to be in the book,” he said.  “We didn’t know that they were doing that, and we told them to kill it.”

Ah, the proverbial “we.”  Who are/is the we?  The book’s editor, some unknown puppeteer who is out of sight pulling all the strings or Gingrich himself?  Read the rest of this entry »

Obama finds A– to Kick

with 7 comments

Earlier this month, in an interview with Matt Lauer,  Barack Obama, lowered the standard for the nation’s chief of state when he used a vulgarity in an interview for the “Today Show.”  Consumed with frustration over his inability to turn back the tide on the Gulf Coast, Barack Almighty delivered the now infamous line, “I want to know whose a – – to kick.”  On Tuesday, he found one.  No!  He found two – the American people and the American economy.

In his Oval Office address to the nation, Obama was a cross between a slick politician and a bully.

Who is getting bullied?  We are. Read the rest of this entry »

The Grinch who stole Prosperity

with 15 comments

There she stands like a queen looking down on her subjects from the steps of her summer palace in San Francisco in her designer suits and her $300 haircut. Her aging skin is pulled tight from the latest nip and tuck from the royal cosmetic surgeon. If you look closely, that plastic smile has a hint of a sneer.

I couldn’t applaud when Nancy Pelosi became the first woman Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. Just knowing that she is now third in line to the presidency makes my blood run cold. Read the rest of this entry »
