“The debate is over.” “There is a consensus on global warming.” “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.” From THE IPCC: ON THE RUN AT LAST “Best fit” of yearly average temperature.

Thurgood Marshall College — Garbage U.

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

(Hat tip: powerline) Writing at the “Minding the Campus” blog, Edgar B. Anderson has an incredible interview with a student at Thurgood Marshall College (UCSD), University Of The Absurd.

Mother Earth is Cooling

Monday, March 24th, 2008

The Australian has the details of an ABC Radio interview on the fact that the Earth’s climate has cooled since 1998. Remember, however, that to the global warming cultists, facts like this don’t matter. From Climate facts to warm to: Last Monday – on ABC Radio National, of all places – there was a tipping […]

No Brakes on the Global Warming Express

Friday, March 21st, 2008

Scientist Roy W. Spencer has a great article on the shameful behavior of scientists who refuse to consider solid data that questions the global warming orthodoxy. His article, The Sloppy Science of Global Warming, provides alternate evidence that calls into question the”sensitive climate system” proposed by man-made global warming proponents. Contrary to what you have […]

More on Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda

Friday, March 21st, 2008

Earlier this week, we had this post on the relationship between Saddam Hussein’s Iraq and al-Qaeda. Don’t miss today’s post from powerline which has much more. Here’s the conclusion: The point is that it takes a special brand of myopia to claim that a significant relationship between Saddam’s regime and the EIJ does not somehow […]

Update on Nicasio Rodrigo Vicente-Hernandez

Wednesday, March 19th, 2008

Yesterday we wrote on a horrible wreck caused by one Nicasio Rodrigo Vicente-Hernandez who was fleeing a fender bender when he collided with a Braselton family killing Rodney James Godfrey, 47, and his son Eric Godfrey, 17. We speculated that Vicente-Hernandez may be yet-another illegal alien murderer because he did not have a legal, Georgia […]

The Iraq, al-Qaeda pre-War Relationship

Wednesday, March 19th, 2008

How many times have we heard anti-war, surrender-at-any-price leftists claim that there was no relationship between Saddam Hussein, Iraq, and al-Qaeda before Operation Iraqi Freedom? We have grown tired of hearing it, yet the code-pinko, neocom liberals are as wrong as they can be. As usual. Writing at The Corner, Michael Ledeen has this post, […]

Now for Something Funny

Wednesday, March 19th, 2008

We need a break from all the Obama-Wright crap, so how about a pretty hilarious audio transcript from a Morning radio crew. Here’s the story they’re referring to: The suit claims Dozier was sitting in an empty row when the plane took off, and then fell asleep. When she woke up, she says she found […]

Illegal or Drunk? Place your bets.

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

UPDATES: 03/19/2008 — Update on Nicasio Rodrigo Vicente-Hernandez *** Neal Boortz has a very sad story about an “accident” in Atlanta this past weekend. Several months ago a congressional report was released which showed that illegal aliens are responsible for about 25 deaths every day in this country. Twelve of those deaths come from homicides, […]

Basic Greenhouse Equations Totally Wrong

Friday, March 14th, 2008

What happens when a physicist who was an “outspoken supporter of the Kyoto Protocol” learns that the basic differential equations governing the predominant “global warming” models are erroneous? He admits the error and changes his scientific opinion because he is an honest scientist. What does a government behemoth like NASA, which benefits greatly from the […]

Contraband Candy in Government Schools

Thursday, March 13th, 2008

Putting your children in government schools is an act of child abuse. Shame on you. This is the kind of mindless crap that occurs daily in the government indoctrination and propaganda centers euphemistically known as “public schools.” Connecticut School Rethinks Suspension for Eighth Grader Caught With Contraband Candy: NEW HAVEN, Conn. — An eighth-grade honors […]

The Ripoff Joke that is Ethanol

Thursday, March 13th, 2008

Don’t miss this Walter Williams article on the “ethanol hoax” and why it is a complete ripoff to consumers, environmentalists, and everyone that needs to eat. Ethanol from corn (i.e., “American ethanol”) is a highly-subsidized, inefficient act of theft from American consumers, but a goldmine to politicians and agricultural companies like Archer Daniels Midland (ADM). […]

Mayor orders locals not to die

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

(Hat tip: tejay) You can’t make this stuff up. Al-Reuters has this article, Cemetery full, mayor tells locals not to die. Dying Americans have to cope with the insulting, socialist “Death Tax,” and in France the insults and heavy-handed reach of government also don’t end with death. BORDEAUX, France (Reuters) – The mayor of a […]

Sharia Creep in the USA

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

*** Scroll for Updates *** How will the Muslims take over the West? A couple of strategies (besides outright jihad) come to mind: For one, there’s the Demographic Timebomb that is already exploding in Europe.

Western Life is an Open Book

Monday, March 3rd, 2008

(Hat tip: Andy McCarthy) Ibn Warraq has a great essay, Why the West Is Best, that is his response to Muslim intellectual Tariq Ramadan. Warraq debated Ramadan in October 2007 on the question, “We should not be reluctant to assert the superiority of Western values.” Warraq spoke in favor of that motion. Warraq is a […]
