For years, global warming alarmists have claimed that aerosols have masked the effects of greenhouse gases in the past, explaining why global temperatures cooled during a period of rapid greenhouse gas production in the 20th century. But a new study by University of California-San Diego and NASA (found on FoxNews.com) indicates that the alarmists were wrong about the aerosols: they don’t reduce temperature but raise it. In other words, the things that wackos claim to
The Chinese government has found a way to regulate reincarnation. Can we use the method on the Fairness Doctrine? (h/t Discerning Texan).
**UPDATE** Michelle Malkin reports that the two suspects arrested with explosives near Charleston, SC, last night are Muslims. See MichelleMalkin.com for updated details. (Maybe they were on their way home from YearlyKos.) From the Charleston ABC News affiliate’s website: The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office believes that among materials in the car’s trunk were a bomb and bomb making materials that include chemicals, fuses, and igniters. The men 21-year-old Yousef Megahed and 24-year-old Ahmed Mohamed were pulled over Saturday
The YearlyKos could be the last hurrah of this new hard left, the way Woodstock was the final note of the song of the Sixties. YearlyKos is a get-together of hard left bloggers organized by DailyKos founder Markos Moulitsas. DailyKos claimed, perhaps rightly, responsibility for the Democrat Congressional victory in 2006–much the way Hammas might claim victory for blowing up an Israeli schoolhouse. The Kos and Democratic Underground people who filled attendee list are the
We nominated Bob Dole, didn’t we? Anyway, TexasFred‘s has been listening in on the Romney campaign and heard this: Mitt Romney has cited the social welfare network of the Lebanese Hezbollah terror group as a role model the U.S. should copy to help promote “goodness” and “freedom” around the world. I know . . . out of context, read the whole thing, and all that. Still, a guy running for president ought to know that
From FoxNews.com: OAKLAND, Calif. — Police said they recovered firearms linked to the slaying of an Oakland journalist during a series of early morning raids Friday targeting members of a Black Muslim splinter group that operates a chain of bakeries. To paraphrase Harry Truman, if that’s a religion of peace, I’m a Hottentot.
Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) generates more internet press than all the other candidates combined, it seems. His name has been on Technorati’s most-searched list for a couple weeks, rivaling Paris Hilton and YouTube for search popularity endurance. Whether or not his fledgling campaign for President will so endure is another matter. Rummaging through the odd blog with a Ron Paul theme, I found some common characteristics among his supporters: Young Typically apolitical Technology careers Homosexual
Last night in the U.S. House of Representatives, a party’s leadership refused to abide by a legal vote (Volunteer Opinion Journal). The vote was on a Republican measure to strip from a farm bill language that guaranteed welfare for illegal aliens. The vote was 215-213 in favor of stripping the guarantees. But Nancy Pelosi wanted a different result. So, her minions essentially burned the ballots, declared there was no vote, and ordered a new one
Democrat candidate for president Barack Obama’s bizarre chess game with foreign policy took another twist today. In remarks to a report, Obama seemed to formulate his nuclear policy as he went along: “I think it would be a profound mistake for us to use nuclear weapons in any circumstance,” Obama said, with a pause, “involving civilians.” Then he quickly added, “Let me scratch that. There’s been no discussion of nuclear weapons. That’s not on the
UPDATE and Bump: Predictably, the idiot left has begun blaming George W. Bush and the Iraq War on Terror for the bridge collapse (Gateway Pundit). They know they’re full of manure. Saturday, liberal Bob Beckel on FoxNews admitted that there was no connection, but he went to explain the liberal lies: “Those of us who are opposed to this war will anything to advance our point.” It’s nice to hear a Democrat fess up to
